Must be the effect of the Japari Buns, Japari Bread, and Japari Soda.

I was very disappointed by this episode. I did try to give it a fair chance ignoring all the kadokawa drama. But everything just felt like a poor imitation of the original instead of a spiritual successor. This is all subjective of course but here's some of the things I just didn't like: The low framerate animation was jarringly noticeable and there was no attempt to hide it or work with its limitations. The character designs are just meh and seem to have less "life" to them. The pseudo-3D shaded look of the ceruleans looks bad and out of place. The first episode seemed to just be a direct mirror of events in s1e1, with painfully forced callbacks attempting to imitate the charming quirks that made Serval and Kaban endearing. The character dynamics seem to be rushed – even from the first episode of s1 we see Kaban's personality and the friendship between her and Serval slowly forming. On the other hand in s2 the characters are sort of just placed there and we're supposed to accept them on faith, which would be easy to do if it were an actual successor but the show makes clear that it's not. It straddles a dead zone between the two where it's hard to just accept them from the get-go because they're so different.

Overall I hope things get better fast from the second episode.

Episode 2 is out and sadly no redemption in sight. Animation seems even choppier (but occasionally becomes smooth for no good reason), there's no character development, and the episode could be reduced to "they find a playground" without losing any depth. They're got the "show don't tell" entirely backwards. Unlike season 1 where part of the adventure was seeing Kaban's ingenuity and the labor of re-assembling the bus, here we just get a snap cut to a reassembled playground. They did foreshadow Kaban again so I'm not sure where they're going with that, or if they're just baiting people into watching until the end.

I used "flat" here to stand in opposition to "bidding"; as in, a licensor could just bring forward X money and get non-exclusive rights. Generally, in the anime world, rights which are being sold to the West are exclusive (for instance, only one company can stream a given show), but there are some exceptions.
Daisuki? No. Daisuki, in short, was an anime streaming website for Western audiences founded by a Japanese consortium of publishers, as opposed to a Western company. You might be confusing it with Daiz.
The rise and subsequent downfall of DVD sales, really. You know, the days before online video streaming was a thing - renting and buying movies or anime being the only way to watch them legitimately outside of a cinema or TV.

And finally, the long one:
A production committee is, in short, a group of companies which band together to fund an anime. Essentially, a bunch of executives decide to invest money on a given series, in some proportion - some companies give more, some give less. In exchange, those companies get to do things like decide on the anime's direction or get early exclusive rights or start making figures way before anyone else is aware about the series... all of those things which come with foresight.
The reason anime is produced this way is simply of risk management. Before the committee model (which caught on in the late 80s-mid 90s), companies tended to fund anime by themselves - this meant great rewards if they hit a goldmine, but significant losses if the series or movie flopped. The committee model allows companies to split that risk - first of all, as everyone only contributes a comparatively small slice of the pie, the risks (but also gains) are also smaller. Second, a company can and will often invest in multiple anime projects at a time, so they're far more likely to hit at least one series that makes a nice return in revenue.
An important thing to remember is that anime studios are not often parts of the production committee. Therefore, a common saying that "paying for Crunchyroll supports the studios" isn't exactly true - but it's not a lie either. In essence, studios are contracted

So she's not a demon lord anymore! So that means she's only a cute loli teacher now!
There's a good side and bad side to this.
Good side is: she's cute AF and I want to hug her n shiet and now that she's not evil, she might allow me to do it.
Bad side is: secret demon lord loli teacher who wants to get rid of the hero students would've been a pretty funny plot.

Hold the fuck up. They wanted to kill this boy who looks nothing at all like a bug and is capable of talking and even saved one of them when in danger just because they assume he might be a bug. Then they come across an actual bug and she's like "whatever, it's not red who cares". wtf?

Two ep in and I can't say I like this too much so far. It has good atmosphere and as a nice sense of misery about it but the characters don't feel that interesting (so far). Wakaba is kind of annoying and I don't like the looks of this 'what is love' direction they're going in. I am curious about this world of theirs however and still want to see where this is going overall.

>I was thinking the same thing. I'm glad it wasn't simply "because anime" like many others have done.

Still, I was thinking again, how will they handle this? Will they give a different set of characters air time for each alternating ep? Seems like if that would be the case, the characters themselves don't have enough established personality, and would detract from the show, spreading them too thin. I suspect they'll stick with the same main cast throughout.

No, we'll probably get a new set of 3 girls for the next episode. Do you guys have any predictions for other popular anime/manga that will get referenced?

I'm curious about this myself and I'm wondering just how far back they'll go. Everyone and their mother has referenced/parodied the likes of haruhi, and eva by now so I'd assume they'd pass on those, if nothing else due to age and lack of current relevance but I wouldn't count them out completely. Likewise a gundam parody feels like it would be too cliche as it's also been done to death.

What I'm betting on is Girls und panzar without a doubt, decent chance of kemono friends (producing a parody of it helped Last Period gain a lot of attention). Good chance of Love live being brought up too, probably having this virus thing screw up their ability to sing or something like that. Maaybe non-non biyori, maybe kancolle. I can also see something like sword art or one punch man being brought up. Also a good chance of at least one magical girl anime.

To be honest the franchise never really had much of anything else going on besides this project, which is 4 whole movies. There are plenty of other franchises to look at if you want to know what real milking is. Though Eva merchandise is pretty bad I've gotta admit.

After Rebuild 2.0 came out I saw a lot of people saying (/tc/ very much included) they'll kill themselves after the Rebuild project is finished. Bet they figured it'll get done by 2016 or so. I wonder how many of them already killed themselves, how many don't even care about Eva anymore, how many still stick to their plan etc.
>> No. 32121 [Edit]
>>32115
Yeah I was mainly referring to merchandise. I know they haven't released much media for a long time. outside of the movies the only thing that comes to mind was the eva at school thing with chibi characters? Merchandise and pachinko seems to make them a lot more money than the media side of things so it makes sense to focus more on that
I doubt those people were serious by the way, but there's really no way of knowing but I have gotten the feeling eva is quickly becoming irrelevant to today's youth.
>> No. 32123 [Edit]

>I doubt those people were serious by the way
Frankly I'm very convinced they absolutely meant it, having been in a similar position in the past ('I'll kill myself after...'). Whether they were actually capable of pulling the trigger - quite literally - is a different matter, but again, I'm sure many of them believed what they wrote. I would take this less seriously if it were on 4chan or something but if it's /tc/ of all places...
Anyway, don't wanna derail the topic any further so I'll leave it at that, this isn't really news.

The guy who draws Yotsuba keeps on getting stopped for inebriated driving and theres pills in the car every time. Psychedelic mushrooms were legal in Japan until about 15 years ago. The purple smoke hoozuki blows from his pipe is meant to imply opium smoke, but someone noticed and thats why it was removed in later seasons. There are still people who will insist that hemp has been cultivated in Japan for 10000 years strictly as a source of fiber and nutrition, but they're lying hokkaido-hemp.net/en-history.html

You also have Takabe Ai, who was caught with drugs (rumor was cocaine). She was known for voicing Agiri Goshiki from Kill Me baby, a character who funny enough looked and acted like she was on drugs (probably weed).

The lack of originality would be fine by me if it was at least done well, but that didn't seem to be the case here. It didn't look very good or was well animated, and the creators seem to have a real lack of understanding for how planes behave.
<- No. Just no.
I also found myself wondering, if missile can't track the targets, why wasn't the military using standard projectile based guns instead? The battle ships shown in the opening fight should have been equipped Gatling guns such as this https://youtu.be/mPdNMrDeeVo?t=76 Those alien ships can move, but these sort of weapons have the ability to track fast moving air born targets (such as incoming missiles), calculate trajectory, and compensate for distance wind speeds ect.
I also found it strange that the fighter pilots didn't try to eject once they were obviously boned, but I guess you could toss that up to not reacting quick enough.
