Jumping back to where the S1 Anime Original stuff started and then pretending it never happened, S2 comes along.

The sound track follows the theme from the first season, which is exquisite.

I'm hoping for another 24 episodes, but the current arc is more to set up the next couple, so the first couple of volumes may not sell quite well enough to get there.

4 episodes in and the into arc is just about to the action.

and the OST is just as outstanding as the first season's.

So, anyone else watching this? So far it looks like it could be promising. One thing is for sure the tits on Ryotas are insane.

I had nothing better to do so I kept going. Made it to ep6 before giving up and dropping it. I truly detest the type of anime that try to make death and gore seem hip and cool.

Also, I found the cowtits character both obnoxious and grotesque. Every time they started jumping around and making their oversized meat bags flop about I wanted to puke.

I finished watching this series almost an hour ago, and while I understand why it's getting hate, I think people should give it a second chance.
>The negative:
- Ryo-tas' massively voluptuous chest seemed nothing but fan-service; it was used entirely as a trope with zero subtlety. She was constantly jumping and hopping all over the place making them bounce. Some might like it, but I found it remarkably out of place within the context of the show.
- Content felt particularly crammed; not only the dialogue is extremely fast paced, to the point it might cause exasperation at some points, but it also feels like a lot of the side story was cut, including that of several characters who were advertised as being part of the main cast (Ririka, Albino Boy, Aria and her acquaintance, etc.). It should have been at least 22 episodes.
>The positive:
- The awesome opening (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WI33IX_gUI) and ending (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFVOlvNWkCQ) themes.
- I also constantly noticed how much I liked the background music, I thought it was very good.
- The plot and the story are well-written and consistent once you remove the pacing problems; no characters feel bland once you omit that.
- Character and background design are very stylish and nothing in this series looks visually unappealing, repetitive, or boring.
- Animation style is crisp and cinematic. Some people mentioned how the noses were drawn as a bad thing, but I don't see the issue. Pic related.

The gore (which is used very sporadically later) is presented more as inconsequential rather than alluring, and I think it serves the purpose of desensitizing the viewer so that the upcoming plot doesn't break the suspension of disbelief.
>>27271
>Does it take place in the same universe at least?
There is a scene where Moritsuka (pic related) says "El Psy Congroo", but it's a reference. Chiyomaru Shikura, representative director of 5pb./MAGES said the "Science Adventure" series (Chaos;Head, Chaos;Child, Steins;Gate and Robotics;Notes) is a fictional game series within the "Science Visual Novel" series (Occultic;Nine and Anonymous;Code).
>In case it's still confusing:
Steins;Gate is a fictional universe that is set within the fictional universe of Occultic;Nine.

ChäoS;Child takes place in October 2015, six years after the events of ChäoS;HEAd. Abnormal events begin to occur in Shibuya district, including mysterious deaths.

I'm not sure why you taste your urine, but if it tastes like soft drinks, you're probably drinking too many soft drinks.

urine probably isn't carbonated and sugary. if it is, your piss probably hurts coming out and you should see a doctor.

<-- This sums up my feelings on this anime.
I'll never understand why teenagers love grotesque stuff like this so much. At any rate I think I'm just going to give up on the ; franchise. Steins;gate was good but everything else has been mediocre or flat out terrible. This after dropping O;N about a week ago too. The shared universe stuff is so inconsequential anyway that it really doesn't matter. It's not like marvel movies where they directly tie into each other, or those clamp anime where characters from one series pop up and have large rolls in other series. Here you have to put the anime under a microscope to find how they relate to each other.

i think most of the posters are waiting for the subs to come out. you seem to be the only person watching the raws.

stella no mahou really has been a delight; im really looking forward to the final episode. too many moe animes are so cookie-cutter in their plot and characters, then have the audacity to cram in cliched fan service that does not stem from the plot. stella no mahou is wonderfully crafted: heart warming and cute because it is earnest, its fan service is organic stemming from plot and character development rather than contrived scenarios, and, like the fan service, i thought the humor was much stronger than other series' slice of life humor because it was so organic.

i'm really curious to see how other fans thought this stacked up.

Which of the Monogatari series has the most Mayoi screentime? I'm far from a fan of supernatural anime, but this girl looks too interesting to just cast Monogatari aside.
>> No. 27691 [Edit]
The first one I guess?
>> No. 27698 [Edit]
The first one has her arc as well as a bunch of other stories she makes an appearance in. Her arc is really good, actually, it's like one of the few parts that is truly cohesive as a story.

Overall it's not that great an anime though, seriously. I'd say watch the first series and get a feel for it if you've never watched the show before.

The characters are moe and alluring but the dialogue is really stilted and the jokes will go over your head because you're not Japanese/the translation is inadequate. The end result is this weird disjointed story that makes very little sense because it relies HEAVILY on Japanese puns. You constantly feel like you should be laughing but you don't get the jokes because they're not even lost, but abandoned in translation. It really doesn't help that they use a non-linear chronology (not that Isin considering some weeb basement dwellers in America when creating the story).

And then they all have the classic SHAFT infocards, except unlike a show such as SZS they actually say things that are relevant to the story instead of witticisms and in-jokes.

They all look amazing though, invariably they have the best use of limited animation I've seen in my life. Like just thinking about it makes me want to dive back in. There's genuine subtlety there and they do it using the same techniques that give anime a lack of subtlety if that makes sense. SHAFT at it's finest.

Medaka Box is better.
