This is better than I thought it would be.
I was initially turned off by the trailer and character designs (since I had seen Another before this... silly I know), but both the protagonists are pretty entertaining.
>> No. 11636 [Edit]
Don't get me wrong, as this first episode has me very excited about this series, but I can't quell the notion that this is going to be a farcical and borderline self-parodying amalgam of Kyoani's past successes. Which would be more than fine by me.

As an aside, how many of you had cases of chuunibyou (usage?) yourselves? I think it'd be funny to share them if you guys don't think it's too off topic. I had it pretty bad myself.
>> No. 11665 [Edit]
I tried to use psychic powers when nobody was watching, and chanted spells when alone. I also thought running with my arms behind my back made me faster. Didn't really have that mary-sue persona that Yuuta and Rikka had going on, though.

I couldn't get through the first episode without pausing every few minutes to try and forget how stupid I was. But I'm still liking it so far.
>> No. 11694 [Edit]
>I couldn't get through the first episode without pausing every few minutes to try and forget how stupid I was.
Oh god, this.
Initially, I was thinking, "Eighth and ninth grade, isn't this a little unlikely? Aren't most people done with that stuff by that age?" And then all the repressed memories started flooding back. My one close friend at the time and I thought we were shamanic warriors, and we'd go to his house after school to "train", which involved things like him punching me in the stomach while I did sit-ups, learning bowstaff forms, and going into the woods to practice summoning our power animal spirits. We would then communicate using our animal spirits and spar using their respective styles. My friend even summoned his pet dog's spirit once, and launched into an unbelievably convincing roleplay of the dog's spirit controlling his body, going so far as to eat dogfood and almost eat a dead fish out of his family's aquarium. All of which took place around ninth and tenth grade. While we weren't completely open about it at school, I'm pretty sure a few people were told.
Naturally, my wardrobe was out of control during this period as well, drawing equally from Mad Max and Squall from FFVIII.

I haven't actually. I did know this kid though. He would hysterically run up and down at school and the whole neighbourhood fighting imaginary creatures with his imaginary staff. I was told he played lineage 2 when not doing that.

I live in the states and I think I stuck out too much for my own good. So the response to this was sending me to see psychologists and shoving pills down me.

The medicines made me feel very void of anything and I never had an appetite. It was like being stricken with Parkinson's.

>> No. 11779 [Edit]
They both mean the same thing. See the link between "isn't out of reach" and "arm is long indeed." An original, unedited line would probably be something like "so the overseers can access this place." Both are so-called "liberal" translations, although gg's is much smoother and weird enough to match her personality.

It's pretty rare for a good show to have two above average options for subs.
>> No. 11780 [Edit]
I know they both mean the same thing, the 'arm is long indeed' version just didn't seem to flow well for me, being a little harder to understand than the obvious 'not out of reach'.

I also do that in very embarrassing siutuations that the MC in certain animes get into. I had to switch tabs quite a bit when reading Boys on the Run since Tanishi would get into so many embarrassing situations that it was too much for me.

he's horribly in denial over his situation. Even though he found a clique of friends who would whole-heartedly accept DUR FUR MASTER, be friends with the DUR FUR MASTER, and even one to two of them put out to him, he still clings to the phobia that he ABSOLUTELY MUST be a normal boy in a normal school with normal friends and that will make him not all by himself as a faggot outcast with no friends at all, even though he should've clearly realized by now how absurd it is.

Of course, the idea that he can just go with it and spend the time sleeping on sempai's thighs every afternoon will never be thought by him (a shame, really, but then again he's quite the faggot and doesn't deserve such a luxurious high school life).

I think the show has been foreshadowing more drama since the episode where Yuuta gives Rikka a new email address. I just hope it can continue to balance incorporating more drama with staying fucking hilarious. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at a series that wasn't authored by Kiyohiko Azuma.

Man, this episode hurt.

The poor kids, having a dead beat whore as a mother, only having one parent who really cares about them, and then having that taken away from them so suddenly.

One of the daughters goes into denial, and the occult/chuu2-syndrome as an escapist methodology to fuel her hope.
The other daughter.... simply dies inside. A rather emotionless doll. And she simply doesn't understand or know what or how to deal with the other daughter, vivid with emotion, but out of touch with reality. She doesn't want to simply shatter her hopes and dreams, to make her like herself, but she also wants her to face the music of the situation. The longer she stays in her fantasy world, the harder she will hit the concrete when she falls out of it.

on a rather unrelated note, when the fuck did Kyoani learn how to draw feet? Dear lord almighty, did they do anything like this in the last few years as well that I simply wasn't aware of (It may have been a year or...three maybe since I watched a kyoani show)? If so, I'd like to go watch those show(s), or at least get them properly noted in my backlog. This is an amazing revelation to myself.

KyoAni sure as hell wasn't going to take a show about a schizotypal girl and not throw in some drama surrounding her.

Her situation is kind of reminiscent of those famous Freudian case studies where the girls' dads died, too, so it doesn't feel too surprising that they'd take that route.

Really? I've found it to be one of the funniest things I've seen, and get all giggly just thinking about certain scenes.

This last episode wasn't all that giggly, though. It made me kind of uncomfortable in an unusual way, almost as if I'm vicariously experiencing my teenage self's innocence being crushed all over again. I'm going to venture that I'm far from being unique in feeling this way, as well.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I haven't found the series humorous and enjoyable; I just never found most of the humor funny enough that I actually laughed out loud before that scene.

As for the second part, I feel you there. It doesn't bring back my vietnam PTSD from middle/high school like beck did, but I'm definitely feeling it.
Still, even as it's going now, I'm still hoping for MC-kun to give an unseen horizon version of Saito's big NHK speech as part of the grand finale for the show.

I'm not finding the show as enjoyable as when I first started. The situations just don't seem serious enough to warrant all these theatrics.

Man, why do harems have to pull really cheap, shallow drama so often? Well, at least it seems like only 3/12 episodes will focus on it, so I guess it's not unusually egregious, but still.
>> No. 12771 [Edit]
This show isn't really a harem, seeing as there's only one girl with any interest in the MC at all
>> No. 12772 [Edit]
It has a nice guy protagonist surrounded by multiple heroines and a comedic sidekick that won't get laid in a school setting. Having the heroines lust after the main character is not essential for the work to be a harem - it's more about having the protagonist solve their problems and whoring them out to the viewer.
>> No. 12773 [Edit]
haha, people say that about every harem.
Even in blatant harem anime, the guy usually leans towards one female and cock teases the others. It's a piss poor defense.
If the guy in this anime wanted to, he could easily go all the way with any of the girls around him.

Now let's be mature about this.
You know what he meant.

He's right. The layout isn't that different from a typical harem series. However, what matters most is the execution. I think they're dropping the ball a little with the excessive drama to very normal circumstances.

seconding this.The show is as much of a harem as Haruhi if you watch the airing order.
The demographic targets are mostly the same and there are many, many elements that are similar for those reasons. The show is first and foremost a drama, with the other elements thrown in to keep the story from being a dark, heavy coat that nobody wants to wear; also to throw in other archtypes for the sake of popularity and other sorts of polls which are absolutely essential for the Japanese viewers to enjoy things.

also, the point that >>12774 was trying to make was that none of the girls would willingly submit to MC-kun's advances. Kumin would put MC-kun into a coma, Mori Summer would cry and scream loudly as she tries to resist until the bitter end, Rikka would sort of resist and end up just crying to herself as it happened, Sanae would start out like Mori and end like Rikka.
Seriously, girls can be friends without hidden sexuality agendas to push. I'm saying that it's theoretically possible, nothing more. Also, all the characters were brought together solely by Rikka, with MC-kun just sort of being dragged along for no other reason than for the auther to have a place to show cynicism (like kyon).

Holy fuck that last ep was depressing
>> No. 12795 [Edit]
>I think they're dropping the ball a little with the excessive drama to very normal circumstances.
I'm rather conflicted on this. Yes, the drama seems a bit heavy-handed, in particular Sanae's first outburst. However, I think writing it off as "very normal circumstances" is a bit unfair. Rikka isn't growing out of her chuunibyou naturally, she made herself vulnerable to Yuuta and in doing so was finally broken. And his remorse is more than evident, and with good reason, seeing a girl once so sure of herself and vibrant (however deluded) now lost adrift on the open sea of society. Of course, she'll eventually assimilate, subsumed into the murk of the lowest common denominator. But isn't that fucking sad? And in the process, she's leaving behind her only close friend. She doesn't wear her thighhighs anymore. She's boxed up everything she's passionate about, and does she even have any other hobbies or interests? That warrants some heavy drama in my opinion, but that's just my take.
>> No. 12796 [Edit]

I'm assuming in the last episode something happens and she returns to "normal" somewhat. Not quite as deluded as before but still interested in weird stuff and playing with Sanae, and the club stays together

I just started watching this show.
This after deciding to boycott Kyoani until they make more Haruhi and watching their show from summer/fall (I was too ashamed to show my face in public for a few weeks after that). Anyway, this show it terrible and I really hate it and Kyoani. It made me so angry I had to stay up until 4:45 AM to rewatch eps 1-6 while I was waiting for 8-11 to download (fell asleep during that, more shame).
Anyway, all I can really say about the show is that I think it might be some sort of bizzaro Haruhi and that the lead girl is too fat and the Kokonoe Rin is too skinny.
>> No. 12809 [Edit]
That's what I was thinking as well. I'm sure Rikka will end up bonding with her mother and realize that she can still be herself without troubling her.

I just want to say that I liked it a lot. I'll give it an 8/10 if I ever update my MAL again.

I know a lot of people here complained about the seriousness, but I liked how they managed the seriousness. When you're a kid at that age, it feels like everything that happens is a big deal and I don't think any of the characters acted unexpectedly pertaining to the serious circumstances, aside from the strange nap girl becoming Rikka plot device at the end there and everyone coming together to help out at the very end when Yuuta is on Rikka's roof and stuff.

I agree completely, and this is why I think the overwrought drama suited the show for the most part. I loved the last episode, although I have to say the narration bit at the end just seemed a bit too much.
This series is one of the most fun that I have ever watched but, as most others seem to think as well, it's not without it's problems. I can sum up my take on it thusly: as a comedy it was hilarious, as a romance it was cute but lacking substance, and as a drama it was earnest but mediocre. And had I not related to it so strongly because of my own chuunibyou experiences, I probably would not have liked it as much as any of those.

>the message that it tried to convey on japanese society was once again overshadowed
wait, what? why must the show be a social critique of Japan's social life and societal problems?
escapism exists in ALL cultures; it can be argued to be the basis for why religion in general came to be: the specific feeling that there must be more to life than just this, because just this just fucking sucks wasn't invented by Japan, nor brought about by the post-WWII mindset and mentality that was warped slowly over 60 years into the hellhole of suicide-inducing pressure that it is now.
why must the show be "deep" and "thought provoking"? why can't it just be what it appeared to be?

>2 maybe 3 out of 10 overall. Enjoyment a tad above that.
Out of curiosity (and slightly unrelated), just how much must you dislike a show before you drop it, or does your rating scale include negative numbers, or are you a person that will watch to completion every show they start regardless of how much they enjoy doing so?

When Kumin was acting like Rikka, it was so ridiculously out of character it wasn't even funny. And here I thought Shinka was the bad influence...

I feel for you Isshiki bro, I really do.
>> No. 13549 [Edit]
Because this wasn't really filled with social commentary, and did not convey its message successfully. Besides, it was obvious that Jinrui had social commentary since the first episode, while this show only appeared to be quirky and funny up to episode 9. Then, they shoved a lot of forced drama that could have been solved better, and that leaves the message that running away from facts is something good. The execution was also wrong with Kumin acting like Rikka, and the plot not moving forward at all.
