Winner of the second season of the thing where we choose an anime and watch it together or not and hopefully talk a little about it or something else entirely.

Get the recommended mess of a mish mash of different releases here.

It starts 08/06 at 4AM UTC(same thing as GMT).

For those that didn't participate yet, here's the steps on how to join us:
1- Get Syncplay and one of the supported video clients.
2- Get the anime chosen for the current "season", getting the suggested release is encouraged but it should work with anything that has simmilar timing
3- When the time we decided comes, open the episode we'll be watching on that day with syncplay and use those data to connect to our room:
Server address: syncplay.pl:8995
Default room: tc

Syncplay has no chat feature, so you may join us at IRC(#tohno-chan at irc.rizon.net) to talk about the anime as we watch it.

We've had multiple days where no one showed up and no one has posted in this thread in more than a week.

I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to have more than one show each 'season'. As is if someone's not interested in the selected anime they'll have to wait a month for the next one to be picked.

>Cure princess is a princess, fortune is a fortune teller, honey is sweet, and lovely is... well I suppose you can't win them all.

Aino Megumi's name is a pun with "Goddess of Love".
Tsubomi and Blossom have the same relationship as Hime and Princess,
and honey is orange/yellow, hence she was named after something resembling her color scheme (a la Fresh and Yes5)
>> No. 20516 [Edit]
>Aino Megumi's name is a pun with "Goddess of Love".
sure that works, but even so the point is the cure names don't relate to each other.

>Tsubomi and Blossom have the same relationship as Hime and Princess,
perhaps, but that's completely irrelevant.
>> No. 20520 [Edit]

I feel you kinda missed my point. Every series since Heartcatch had a pretty clear cut 'theme'. Some seasons before Heartcatch had that, too, most notably Splash Star's focus on nature - through Cures (their names and even attacks), through fairies (and their ... country?) and through enemies.

Heartcatch had some consistency in naming - mostly related to flowers - and in enemies - all related to desert. Desert generals make the flowers in human hearts wilt. It's very clear cut.
Same goes for Suite, very strong music theme.
Smile had no consistency when it came to naming Cures, sure, but everything else was strongly related to fairly tales - both the 'country' they were trying to save as well as the enemies.
Dokidoki was the weakst of the bunch as the 'trumps' theme didn't really shine through. Cures are related to that, yes, Mako-pi comes from Trump Kingdom and occasionally they use some attacks related to cards (Straight Royal Flush was the name I think?) but again, it feels kinda weak.

But even though it was weak in Dokidoki it was there. Happiness Charge doesn't have anything like that. Hime's country is something completely random, enemy generals are completely all over the place and there's no pattern in naming Cures. The theme is completely gone.

There are bigger problems with the series, sure. Doesn't change the fact that having no theme doesn't really help the series in the slightest.
>> No. 20521 [Edit]
I realized you were commenting on the theme of the series, and yes this season doesn't really have one. I simply wanted to point out that the names have a tendency to be random, but you make a good point in that while they aren't clearly related to each other they do still relate to the theme of the series... usually. As such I suppose they are related after all if they have the same source. Makes me wonder if black & white are named as such due to the clear cut nature of who's good and bad in precure (jk).

It's possible the theme of this season is meant to be love/romance with that being reflected in cure lovely's names as >>20515 has pointed out.

Let's have a thread for screencaps! Please try to avoid spoilers, and when you post something spoilersome at least mark it as a spoiler pic properly.

The first episode was quite nice. As expected of noitaminA. I have high hopes for the development of the story of this, despite the first epsisode not having said much about the overall plot and characters.

In this thread, we discuss and point out regular cliches and common occurrences found in anime.
a example would be the well known protag seat, but there are many out there, some more obvious than others.

Just to start things off, this is one I've been seeing a lot of.
Characters who fail to notice obvious things directly in front of them, often times needing someone to point it out for them.

Weather responds to the emotional state of the main characters like clockwork. Rain specifically will commence when a main character is sad, depressed, or troubled.

Rather than wasting time creating teru teru bozu, characters should find who ever is sad and cheer them up.

In this thread we come up with our own ideas for anime.
what would you like to see get made?

Well, to start it off, how about an anime about a guy that starts thinking that he's hallucinating when he starts seeing weird things in a mirror. Eventually he starts seeing his reflection differently, like with slight variations, until his reflection starts looking back at him and he realizes that his reflection isn't just his reflection but another him. I'm thinking of making the whole 'reflection' thing as a way so that he sees different versions of himself, so that he isn't stuck with only one other static personality, in which would enable him to eventually meets versions of himself that lie to him or try to kill him or something. Like looking at different dimensions of himself. Maybe starting off as horror with psychological elements until it becomes more than that would be the best way to start it off.

I'm still trying to come up with a good explanation for this sudden situation for this guy, but it'll have to be a prequel that features a different protagonist/antagonist as the lead and whether that character inadvertently causes this or something.

The entire thing is kind of rough since I kind of just thought this up an hour ago, but I kind of mixed it up with some older ideas and stuffs. I'm gonna guess it either probably has been done before or just sounds terrible.

Seconding this one. It would be a very refreshing change from the "miracles happen" NEET-oriented plots.

Naruto except set in England with witches and everyone is a girl and its actually good like the first two arcs and nothing like the rest of the story.

I like how the blonde girl looks so traumatised.

Sharo best girl
>> No. 20491 [Edit]
I just realized something. Rize is actually a really horrible person. She has more money that she could hope to burn while ignoring Sharo's situation who's suffering in poverty. She could easily help her and her whole family but instead doesn't lift a finger.
>> No. 20501 [Edit]
>rize's family
rize uses antique cups for target practice that are worth more than what sharo makes in a year. She doesn't need to get her family involved. Rize could probably support sharo easily with less than 1% of her allowance alone.

>>implying rize's family is obligated to do that
they're not 'obligated' any more than you would to be say "go" if someone held a gun to your friends and family and planed on killing them if you didn't say it. you could say nothing and watch them die. Thats how easy it would be for rize to help sharo, but she rather just watch her suffer.
If you owned an apple orchard and a friend of yours was starving, would you really just watch and do nothing?

>>implying sharo would accept that and not take it as them looking down on her or pitying her
They have an excessive abundance of something she has little of and is in desperate need of, it would make no sense not to take it. She clearly hates the current state of her life and having to work so much for so little. If anything rize is looking down on her by seeing her as unworthy of help.

p.s. There's nothing wrong with sharing you god damn jew.

p.p.s. please remember this isn't 4chan. Don't act like it is.
