So my guess is that Monkey's extremely strong Charisma is what made Niwatori fight not the One Man Army drug. Her skill is called "killing peacefully" she probably has never killed anyone personally with her own hands but instead made others do the killing for her/made people walk to their deaths.

Also I just love how unceremoniously these characters die. Like a lethal strike is a lethal strike. No bullshit or anything. I just wish the backstories aren't used as death flags so we could guess who dies next. Although knowing Nisio there's gotta be a reason why and it won't be revealed until the end.

When the episode start with the Chicken's monologue, we all know who will die, it's how this anime rolls

Surprised I haven't seen more people mentioning this is based on a light novel by Nisioisin

It is mentioned whenever someone says it seems too predictable, people reply saying it was made by him and that it will probably not stay like this... we'll have to wait and see.

(It is also the main reason a lot of people picked it up)

Interesting episode. It adapted the third chapter of the novel called - Third Battle. They are really stretching it though. The first 9 minutes or so of the episode were completely original. Or rather her past was only described in a few sentences in the novel. I am actually really happy they are "adding" more personality to the characters.

The fight between The Fighter of Ox and the Fighter of Horse was barely even mentioned in the novel. All in all it was a decent episode.

A cool fact about The Fighter of Chicken:

Her warrior's name Niwatori is written with 庭取 where 庭 (Niwa) represents a partitioned space/field while 取 (Tori) means claiming. Niwatori written as a single kanji 鶏 means chicken. So her name literally means "a chicken who claims the field". Cool reference to how her "Sky burial" claims the field.

tournament arc?? TOURNAMENT ARC!

the pacing is as slow as Asta is annoying.

Sister Lily will be hard to beat for Best girl...

What a solid ep and very fun.

That training scene in the beginign reminded me so much of the Berserk dub bloopers with guts training...

Doesnt Asta's Magic Sword look a lot like the Claymore's in Claymore? Like the design of it. I dont know if its a specific kind, but just something i keep noticing.

It was nice to see them working hard to get ready for the test. Even if Asta cant use magic, he does what he can and doesnt quit and thats why hes a great character.

Man that farewell dinner, so many potatoes... im jelous.... iw ant some... with a side of Sister Lily...

Of course they cant help but compete all the way to the capitol... i was kind of suprised they didnt get there early with all the running.

So next week looks to start to test and its a tournament? Or something? Seems like its gonna be fun. I cant wait to see what magic everyone has.

Also do people only use 1 element? Ive noticed they tend to like with Sister's water and Yuno's wind.

Where are my Sister Lily doujins at

No matter what you think this is the epitome of all anime

Too bad Ash can only read at the level of a small child. I'm sure going out on a journey at the age of 10 isn't too good for your education lol

Well he hasnt missed too much education, remember, less than a year has passed since he set out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Edit: First episode and I missed the time... because of course I overslept to 7am. Sigh, didn't know it was going to be so hard because of holidays. I wholeheartedly apologise. Please forgive me. I will make sure this never happens again.

First time watcher

Wow, that cut from bright, hope-filled high school life with friends to the dark setting inside a car listening to some radio talk show alone in the middle of the night. /sub/2anime_irl4anime_irl

Also, the seiyuu (or would the plural form be seiyuus?) for that anime radio talkshow were great. It's been a while since I heard anything that sounded like actual live action Japanese entertainment in an anime.

Overall, this was an okay first episode for me. The production value is certainly high, but it didn't grab me like I expected it would given how popular and praised the series is. I think the large cast had something to do with that. Many more characters than I anticipated were introduced in this first episode, and it was hard to connect or even keep track of someone.

That being said, the show definitely has the makings to be great depending on how the character interactions and look into the industry turn out. And right off the bat, it does seem like the show isn't sugarcoating it too much when depicting how shit the working conditions can be.

First time viewer here:

After enjoying Sakura Quest last season I'm really excited to join this rewatch!

They already got me with the "Don-Don-Donuts, let's go nuts!" and the Initial D parody at a perfectly safe speed of 50 km/h. As expected I like the designs too, just like in Sakura Quest. The cast seems fun and from what I can tell the story will be filled with production problems just like the one in this episode, so this should be exciting.

It's interesting that they are addressing problems with the industry seeing as they showed Segawa clearly overworking herself and ending the episode with her collapsing right when Miyamori was ringing the bell of her apartment.

Overall nice first episode, I'm liking Miyamori (nice design, can drift automatic FWD Kei cars). I wonder if everyone from the animation club already managed to get a job in the industry besides Aoi and Ema or if they are going to get one as the show progresses (since it's obvious that they'll end up together sooner or later) but it'll probably be answered rather quickly.

First Time Watcher - Episode 1 Impressions

I'll be honest friends, I was pretty doubtful at the start of this episode. It begins with two still images and then a rolling intro of the girls and their ambitions, their portraits framed through the holes of the donuts they're holding. My problem is that all of the characters suffer from a pretty bad case of sameface, accentuated by the fact that they are introduced in the exact same pose, in the exact same position on screen, with mostly the same facial expressions. For a show about animation, I was worried it was going to be a bit light in that department.

However, once it moved on to a montage of their efforts to realise their dream of creating an animation together I started to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. The girls are obviously very passionate about their goal, and I'm a sucker for "people creating things they love despite the odds" stories. In fun contrast, I absolutely loved the back-to-reality cut to Miyamori two and half years later, looking stressed, obviously with the weight of the world on her shoulders. This gives me the impression that I'll be watching a show where optimism and realism will clash pretty regularly.

The ensuing Initial D homage is neat, if not a little absurd. It felt slightly out of place at first, but I'm going to take it as a bit of fun character building. Miyomori is clearly dedicated to her work, and isn't opposed to a bit of friendly rivalry in the process.

After this comes the flood of character and role introductions, with a taster of interesting industry in-knowledge. I'm a layman in regards to the ins and outs of anime production, but I felt that they struck an excellent balance between realism and ELI5 presentation. We're met with an endearing moment as the crew view their first episode on air, and I find myself enjoying the character dynamic already, despite the swift introductions. I'm also readily impressed by the fact that the entire production crew aren't cute girls! It's a refreshing change.

The show now has my full attention as we are thrust behind the curtain into the max-speed madness that is the anime production process. Deadlines are strict, conditions are harsh, and everybody involved is juggling a thousand problems. Once again, I am pleased with the show's mixture of bright outlook and gloomy reality. It settles in fully at the end of the episode when we find that Segawa has collapsed, presumably from exhaustion. I wonder at this point how the show will handle the issue of overwork, which is a common situation for people in Japan. A veiled protest at worker conditions, or an optimistic "you can do it if you try hard enough" sentiment? Or perhaps neither, and I'm reading too much into it! Either way, I have thoroughly enjoyed the episode by this point, and look forward to the next one.

TL;DR: Wasn't impressed at the start, but fell in love as the episode progressed and the characters and setting were fleshed out.

Rewatcher

WELCOME TO BEING OVERWORKED!

Bright future, dreams, and everything in between. Then reality hits.

And remember, if you want to get hired by an anime studio, you will need to be proficient in street racing and drifting.

What I love about this show is how it addresses problems and complaints you see about anime being delayed, why something sucked or didn't meet your expectations, or why quality dropped at some point. Which I never really paid attention to the first time I watched this, but as I see it happening more and more, it makes sense.

Best Character: 3-gatsu no Salt! RE: Round 3 Bracket A!

Best Character: 3-gatsu no Salt! RE: Round 3 Bracket A!

So we're back at it! Based on the results from the poll yesterday, comments left in the thread, and some of the evidence found behind the bot created reddit accounts, I decided to bring the bracket back to Round 3 which is right before bot created accounts started interfering with the votes.

I'd like to both apologize for the unfortunate, sticky situation and thank everyone for coming back to this contest day after day and put in the effort to try to help keep these contests fair. I know it's a huge damper on the fun to know that voting had been tampered with but it makes me happy to see how much people still have fun with these contests and how they want to have their favorite characters win fair and square.

I hope that the changes bracket creator /u/mhackmann (thanks for your hard work!) put in place will help the rest of the contest run smoothly until new changes can be put in place for future contests. He wrote up the full details of the situation here for everyone to read the full situation.

Summary for the lazy:

I identified 24 IP addresses that had used ~1800 bot created reddit accounts (many of which have been banned by reddit since their creation). AnimeBracket keeps reddit authentication valid for one year, so even if the account had been banned by reddit, it's voting power was still valid in AnimeBracket.

All of the identified IP addresses were banned outright from accessing the server.

All the identified reddit accounts were "banned" from AnimeBracket (since there's no real banning, they are just unable to vote until 2026)

Ensured that the server itself hadn't been compromised (it hadn't), but changed the database password anyways just to be double sure.

Logins must now reauthenticate with reddit once every 24 hours. This makes it much harder to have an army of bots vote and also respects the user's status on reddit.

In the mean time here are the usual links for voting:

Vote here! Results here

Fingers crossed for happy voting for all!

Update: For better or for worse you can't go back and change previous votes you've made. See here for more details but know that if your votes for Round 3 Brackets A-C can't be changed but everything from Round 3 Bracket D will be new votes.

So, it remembered all my votes from last time this round happened and when I try to Submit, it says "no votes submitted". Will it remember how I voted, or is something amiss?

Maybe Killua won't die this time

It's rare we get to reverse time and replay through the salt again.

It's not allowing to change our votes either tho...

Hey! I'm a bit busy with exams today, so I'll keep this short. "The Day of Festa Del Bòcolo ..." is a really cute return to Aqua Alta and features the festival that provides the title to this episode. The festival is a real Venetian event that occurs on the 25th of April, where the men give a single rosebud to the women they love. The backstory is explored and it's a really fun episode, featuring Akari and Akatsuki.

I enjoy this episode a lot. Lowkey, I like to ship Akatsuki and Akari. Akatsuki always reminds me of a schoolboy that doesn't want to admit his feelings for his crush, so instead he teases her instead. Momiko, Momiko, Momiko. It's adorable seeing him practice his confession for Alicia with Akari. Similarly, it's super cute seeing Aika get an Eye of the Rose gemstone from Al.

The scene where the flowers are spilled into the flooded walkway and are swept off is very pretty and I also love the sheepish look Akatsuki has when he gives Akari her first Bocolo rose.

I can't help but think this is a good episode for shippers fanart!

Post-episode thoughts

Ain't that episode lovely? Unfortunately I'm still caught up in what I'd like to call the post-midterms rush so I'm writing this late in the night (surprisingly managed to put out something yesterday though, so I'm proud of that) so here's a few bullets.

I enjoyed this episode a lot, then and now. Aria's comedy really comes into play with this episode, but it's nothing short of the heartwarming aspect we've got from the previous episodes. Those instant transformations from deformed to normal looks really got me.

Acqua Alta returns with a really strong connection to the mood of this episode, as well as a very captivating plot device for our cathartic conclusion.

First-timers, welcome aboard the gondola ship, we're finally setting sail!

This episode does a great job of balancing all of the trio's stories at once. While we get less of Alice screentime, that one simple thing she did surmounts to significant character progress. Meanwhile, we get more Aika x Al teases (and not to mention that akai bara pun) and got some nice moments out of it. Of course, we unravel the true gondola ship that is the Akari and Akatsuki pairing.

Well, to be fairly honest, I didn't see the ship until this episode, since nothing was really implied (aside from that one small bit in Animation Episode 13 where Ai mentioned Akari called Akatsuki "cool").

Akari was really cute.

Did I mention Akari was cute?

We get a nice, touching story about traditions from Manhome and how this undying love also spreads out to the warm and welcoming beauty of Aqua—and the whole show, in general. It was a really good tie-in to the theme of this episode, which is all about Akatsuki stuttering love, of course.

ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT AKARI IMITATING ALICIA THAT WAS THE BEST THING IN THIS EPISODE EVER

I think it was at this moment when I thought, "Man, if only everyone watched Aria, maybe we'd have world peace." Megane Alicia next episode! See you all!

First timer

"Being embarrassed isn't allowed!" Oh how the tables have turned on Aika. Gotta love Akari and Alice's teasing, especially Alice's playful tone. 

Smh, this gag still doesn't work for me. I do like my prideful characters, cough, but they have to carry it with their demeanour and charm and Akatsuki doesn't for me.

Festa del Bocolo? Ooh, it's an actual Venetian tradition that celebrates their patron saint, Saint Mark. The story later on is also accurate to Venetian legend, supposedly originating from the 8. century. Another nice touch, and I'm always a sucker for tragedy.

Hnng. Awh, courtesy roses. Alice's unique phrases are adorable, but of course she doesn't believe in giving roses herself. I can't agree that it's nothing special, since it's about the message and the person giving them, so I'm glad Akari made her see it from a new perspective!

Huh, Aika's boots (I forgot the english word for these) actually don't match her outfit. But her belligerent dynamic with Akatsuki is as fun as always!

Mmkay, so he's a jerk to his friends too. I also finally noticed the threads between the shoulders and sleeves of Akatsuki's outfit. Interesting style.

Did they reuse Ai's voice actor here? It gave me the wrong expectations. D:

Blushing Aika is dekkai cute. I wasn't expecting the cliche interruption though, haha. And then Al talks about her having a fever... they'll really have their hands full with each other.

Akari's impression of Alicia is a wonderful highlight, and embarrassed Akatsuki is much more likeable too. Maybe if he were like this more often, hmm...

That misunderstanding and its aftermath slayed me. Come back!

D'aww, Alice. Of course, Aika can't let herself be defeated either!

And Akari's joy is so bright. Hmm... this is the kind of interaction I want to see between her and Akatsuki, I-I guess.

Lovely episode, I'd say it did well to live up to the first Acqua Alta one. The roses floating in the water made for such a marvellous sight.

First timer

"Being embarrassed isn't allowed!" Oh how the tables have turned on Aika. Gotta love Akari and Alice's teasing, especially Alice's playful tone.

I do like my prideful characters, cough, but they have to carry it with their demeanour and charm and Akatsuki doesn't for me.

Festa del Bocolo? Ooh, it's an actual Venetian tradition that celebrates their patron saint, Saint Mark. The story later on is also accurate to Venetian legend, supposedly originating from the 8. century. Another nice touch, and I'm always a sucker for tragedy.

Hnng. Awh, courtesy roses. Alice's unique phrases are adorable, but of course she doesn't believe in giving roses herself. I can't agree that it's nothing special, since it's about the message and the person giving them, so I'm glad Akari made her see it from a new perspective!

Huh, Aika's boots (I forgot the english word for these) actually don't match her outfit. But her belligerent dynamic with Akatsuki is as fun as always!

Mmkay, so he's a jerk to his friends too. I also finally noticed the threads between the shoulders and sleeves of Akatsuki's outfit. Interesting style.

Did they reuse Ai's voice actor here? It gave me the wrong expectations. D:

Blushing Aika is dekkai cute. I wasn't expecting the cliche interruption though, haha. And then Al talks about her having a fever... they'll really have their hands full with each other.

Akari's impression of Alicia is a wonderful highlight, and embarrassed Akatsuki is much more likeable too. Maybe if he were like this more often, hmm...

First-timers, welcome aboard the gondola ship, we're finally setting sail!

Mm, I wonder if any more will be joining us later...

Akatsuki stuttering

He flubbed it.

ALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT AKARI IMITATING ALICIA THAT WAS THE BEST THING IN THIS EPISODE EVER

Ufufu. It was one of the best, but I can't decide between it and everything else - there were too many of these moments!

I think it was at this moment when I thought, "Man, if only everyone watched Aria, maybe we'd have world peace."

Umu! I'm starting to feel that too.

Fate/stay night Heaven's Feel I. presage flower earns 413 million yen in the first 2 days

Fate/stay night Heaven's Feel I. presage flower earns 413 million yen in the first 2 days

For reference, in the opening weekend SAO:OS and Madoka: Rebellion made 426 million and 400 million, respectively. HF is definitely up there in terms of highest grossing late night anime films.

Reminder that some people waited 13 years for HF route adaptation.

and I'd recommend Zero too, because it spoils its ending

That's intended. The authors intended you experience all of F/SN first. F/Z's ending isn't supposed to be a spoiler.

Nah, it didn't feel like 13 years.

Golden Kamuy anime will be produced by Geno Studio (Genocidal Organ)

The dude in charge for the series composition is absolutely perfect for this anime. He did the series composition for all of Durarara, Kuroko and Baccano. This will be amazing.

The visual looks great. Hope we get some casting news soon :3

Hype. For those who are aware of this series its One of the best new seinen manga of this century.

Aoty of 2018 100% guarantee.

Sadly, not everything on Wikipedia is accurate.

These two are the best
Atalanta's wish is to turn everyone into lolicons

Mordred is just amazing. She makes every scene better.

Her interactions with her master are still top tier but then seeing her with Jeanne and Astolfo brought something new to the table. Need more her and Jeanne moments!!

But you will lose on Shirou and his glorious choir that always goes "OOOOOOoooooOOOOOOooooOOOOO"

Wait a damn second. What? That ending.

Beautiful looking episode again, and some interesting information on the world too. The nous was super neat looking.

Characters are still kind of whatever, but everything is is fascinating enough that I don't mind.

Glad I stayed up to watch the episode.

Does this remind anyone else of Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind? I mean not the story, but maybe the artstyle? It's been a while since I watched the movie, but visually it looks kind of similar.

I guess you could say the Sami ship got

Shot down

The entire planting scene I was mildly upset that I was gunna be on the Sami ship but it would sink like all my other ships because she isn't the main girl. Didn't expect them to sink it not two minutes later
