Is... is Akane too self concious of her laugh? Is that why she hides her face?
Akane needs a hug.

Yet again, anime made want to fuck god.
Will Rikka ever pay attention to Yuta?

Are you ready kids?
>>181723401Aye aye, Captain!
Akane or Rikka?
>>181719945The show doesn't seem like it's even going to bother redeeming her, they'll just sweep it under the rug. Not surprising really, considering how...placid everyone's reactions were to the fact that Akane is a serial killer.
>>181722079>>181723038it's always the same formulaic low effort bait, it's really sad, OP.
>>181723757I don't think it's going to be swept under the rug. Yuta was standing in front of Tonkawa's grave in this very episode. I really like that a random girl (for us) killed in the first episode is still relevant to the plot.
>>181723757If they just sweep it under the rug then what are they going to do with Akane, let her be betrayed by Alexis and she falls into despair and the MC beats alexis and thats it?
>>181723422I can't hear you!
>>181723757>considering how...placid everyone's reactions were to the fact that Akane is a serial killerSo have you just not been paying attention, or what?
they still have not solved the Yuta and Rikka romance
>>181723891>I don't think it's going to be swept under the rug.It's already been swept under the rug.

>episode 12 preview
>>181724086What part of "everyone is programmed to naturally like everything about her" did you speed watch through? Gridman's influence let's them see that she's wrong, but it only goes so far. Their reactions are subdued because their programming and Gridman's influence is conflicting.
>>181724212>>181724244see >>181722079 >>181723038 why don't you ever complain about them?
>>181724086>It's already been swept under the rug. No one in the Gridman Alliance was particularly upset at Akane when they found out she was killing people. Even Yuta, who should be the most objective when it comes to Akane, didn't blame her personally, he just repeated platitudes about killing being bad. Yuta feels about someone he knew being dead, but that hasn't translated to any kind of feelings towards her killer.What are you suggesting he do? Refuse to save her? Kill her himself? Torture her? There aren't really a lot of gray areas here. She's so broken that the only real options are "save her psyche and thereby end the fight entirely" or "execute her for something she's too broken to really unserstand". And while you could argue for the justification of the second given the scale of her crimes, that's not exactly a very heroic choice of action.
>>181719832She does that when she's having real fun. So far she's done it only with Rikka.
I hope that they put more scenes of her cute feet in the remaining episodes.
With these memories that feel made upIt's easy to say "things were better back then"Though it may only be in vainI hide my scars by turning a blind eyeAnd pretending to understandThere's no way I'll ever be a heroSomeone else is the protagonistDon't give up without even realizingThe world before us can't be replaced by anything elseThe same goes for young and old alikeWhen you start falling for the ruleThat every day has to be the sameThat's the time to rise in defianceTogether let's make a revolution of our ownI'm here to rescue you from boredom
>>181724384I'd like that to be true.But I don't think so.In the first image she's laughing like that with Alexis.Unless I'm forgetting something.
>>181724293because those belong to him.
>>181723757You haven't been paying attention, have you? They literally shoved her sins in Yuta's face by flashing Tonkawa's grave at him. It's as unsubtle as it gets when they're screaming 'don't forget she's a murderer' at Yuta's face. Sure they'll save her from Alexis because Alexis is still the greater evil here but they're going to have to deal with the whole 'a bunch of people are dead and won't be coming back' thing.
>>181724041probably in episode 11
>>181724354I'm suggesting that he not act as if she didn't kill people for basically no reason. Whether he saves or kills her is his own business, but at least deal with the fact that she's a serial killer before that.
>>181724369like this >>181724436
>>181724680That makes no sens, you keep reposting your deleted posts over and over again in every thread.
>>181724212Yuta and Rikka's romance is part of the series and Yuta's plot, unlike the yuri crackship who's just a fanfiction.
>>181724817>you'll never suck on Utusmi's tum tum
It's like he saves things people have said to him as copypasta and recycles them against other people. He's a parrot.

>>181724835you mean >>181724681

>>181724957see >>181724681 >>181724874???
>>181725000 You're hilarious
Has anyone noticed that there are two instances of using photos as backgrounds in the show? The ED and Akane running in episode 9.
>>181724564How? What is he supposed to do to her to "punish" her? The only way to win without just killing her is to save her mind, and it's not like judging her for her sins is going to help with that.
>>181725159What does it mean? Are the ED and that scene "the real world" or at least the world before Akane took over?
>>181725110Speaking of which, what does the train symbolize?I kind of understand the fences/walls with Utsumi, Rikka and Yuta, but not Akane's case
>>181725186>What does it mean?It means budget issues.
>>181725111If you would like to be taken seriously, at least try to appear unbiased.
>>181725186Akane is just a Kaiju
>>181725186If all those humans are kaiju-made or just computer programs can we really call it murder? Isn't that more like a shooter game where you kill pixels? Just you know highly intelligent pixels?
>>181725354>are kaiju-made or just computer programsThat's just what Alexis has told her.
>>181725354>If all those humans are kaiju-made or just computer programsSure, but that isn't the case
>>181725354Considering they were fully self-aware and not just programs, they're effectively as "real" as we are, so it is still murder. The problem is that Akane doesn't and apparently can't understand that, so punishing her at this point is nothing but self satisfaction on the part of the punisher. And again, Yuta is supposed to be a hero. Offering mercy instead of punishment is far more heroic and more difficult. It's the difference between a hero and a normal person.
>>181725175It's not about punishing her. It's about making her aware of the things she's been doing. How are they supposed to save her without doing so?>>181725327They seemed perfectly self-aware when we saw them. If the show didn't want us to think of them as people, then why bother killing them or even creating them in the first place?>>181725447>The problem is that Akane doesn't and apparently can't understand that, so punishing her at this point is nothing but self satisfaction on the part of the punisher.So because she can't understand the weight of people's lives, let's just pretend those lives didn't exist?>And again, Yuta is supposed to be a hero. Offering mercy instead of punishment is far more heroic and more difficult. It's the difference between a hero and a normal person. Mercy should be offered to the repentant.
Reminder that Computer World in Gridman is a physical dimension, Kaiju and other things can enter the real world if there's a dimensional gateway just by stepping through.That is also why Gridman must fuse with Naoto to gain physical form even though all the fights happened inside Computer World
>>181725639What scene was so cute in the anime itself.It feels weird seeing shitty artists try to copy it.
>>181725216Time moving forward.
>>181725738>trains were used in original Gridman to show how Takeshi's Kaiju fucked with timeDeepest lore
>>181725708That’s one comfy Rikka
>>181725781Better than Rikka.
>>181725587>it's not about punishing her. It's about making her aware of the things she's been doing. How are they supposed to save her without doing so?They are trying to make her understand. You called it a platitude, but "killing is bad" is literally what they have to get through to her. Showing her that the world isnt just some toy box for her to play around in and that she can't just take lives at will is what they have to show her.>So because she can't understand the weight of people's lives, let's just pretend those lives didn't exist?What function does it serve to punish her for them at this point? Punishment serves one of two purposes: deterrent from repeated offenses (which isnt going to work because Akane doesnt understand why its wrong) or justice for the aggrieved (of which there are none left). It'd be nothing but Yuta taking out his anger over what happened on her. Again, arguably justifiable but the opposite of heroic.>Mercy should be offered to the repentant.The point is to get through to her and make her understand she has something to repent for at all.
>>18172608310/10 would eat
Yuta's relationship to Akane isn't even relevant. Why are you guys debating if he will deliver justice or not? It's not his role.
>>181726099Akane a cute.
>>181726174Yeah, Akane is cute, but what's your point?
>>181725587>So because she can't understand the weight of people's lives, let's just pretend those lives didn't exist?No, it's necessary to make her understand what she did wrong first. Otherwise punishment has no effect on modifying behavior, because the recipient doesn't mentally connect their actions to the consequences, so it seems random.It's like housebreaking a pet. You need to stick their nose in the spot where they peed on the floor before you hit them with the rolled up newspaper. If you go after them with the newspaper first, they have no clue wtf y r u hurtin mi.
>>181719832>Is... is Akane too self concious of her laugh? Is that why she hides her face?strong laughter, taking big bites, basically opening your mouth too widely is frowned upon in japanese culture, especially so for women because Yamato Nasdeshiko.
>>181726174Yes, those are Yuta's and Akane's VAs name. There was an interview with them. What is your point?
>>181726119>>181726215Yuta is the ''hero'' and Akane is the ''villain'', you need to watch more tokushit before postingvilão
>>181726048I called it a platitude because when Yuta called her out on it, he neglected to mention to her why exactly killing is bad. How are they supposed to make her understand that if they don't actually demonstrate to her the consequences of her actions. It's not about punishing her, it's about making her understand that her actions have consequences, which should be a prerequisite of saving her. Simply offering her salvation and friendship straight up won't teach her that.
>>181726276I that why ahegao is so popular in hentai?
>>181726346It's not like I am against it, but why do they keep drawing her like she is a biggest whore in the entire series?
>>181725999Just because you call it spamming doesn't mean it is.
>>181726362Because they're fucking teenagers, dude.
>>181726305Gridman is a TV anime directly influenced by Evangelion and the Brave Series.
>>181726362The problem is that her actions basically have no consequences. The people she kills disappear and life goes on without anyone the wiser and her getting what she wants.
>>181726405>implying she isn't
>>181726437>directly influenced by EvangelionThere are plenty other shows with a far bigger influence on Gridman than Evangelion.
>>181726508Gridman has direct Evangelion references, including deep cuts like phone designs.
>>181726362I think the conversation Yuuta had with her at the Tonkawa family place was pretty clear cut, imo. It's just that Akane was flat out ignoring him. True he hasn't been very direct with her since but I'm sure you can imagine how apprehensive they must be to confront a literal God. I'd take my time with it too. Plus I think it's more the case that they still have to follow a monster of the week formula, and that this is more just down to the storyline structure rather than an indication on Yuuta's character.
>>181726437>>181726508Yeah, like Ultraman. And, oh I don't know... fucking GRIDMAN, maybe.
>>181726538It also has much more Ultras Series references, which is also abundance in Eva since Anno is a UltrafagWhat is your point?
>>181726362>I called it a platitude because when Yuta called her out on it, he neglected to mention to her why exactly killing is bad. How are they supposed to make her understand that if they don't actually demonstrate to her the consequences of her actions.There isnt a "reason" though, beyond the moral one of life having value. There is no greater power, legal or otherwise, that can hold Akane accountable for her actions. For that matter there are no consequences either beyond making Yuta and the others angry with her. Nothing negative happens to her except that she can no longer get what she wants from the main cast. They are literally just trying to convey basic morality to her at this point. "Platitudes" are the only things that matter.>It's not about punishing her, it's about making her understand that her actions have consequences, which should be a prerequisite of saving her.And again, the only consequences it can possibly have at this point have already been enacted. And she doesnt understand the connection between her actions and the consequences. The only way to make her understand is to make her recognize her actions as "wrong". Actually dealing with the fact that she has done those things has to come after.>Simply offering her salvation and friendship straight up won't teach her that.Salvation and friendship are predicated on her ceasing her actions and facing reality.
>Trigger makes decent characters>Waste them on their retarded plot and dramas Fucking always.
>>181726538If you're suggesting Eva is more influential to this show than Tokusatsu because of the fucking phones they have, then I guess that practically makes this a bonefied Transformers spin-off.
>>181726619Gridman doesn't really need to follow tokusatsu rules because it's doing its own thing. People obsessed with applying the rules of shows they've seen before instead of its own rules are being downright silly. Nobody in the staff has mentioned Yuta and Akane's relationship as an important part of the story.
>>181726666This show is too smart for you, anon.
>>181726699There's no such thing as "tokusatsu rules"And what the fuck does that have to do with my post?
>>181726437>Gridman the Hyper AgentApril 3, 1993 – January 8, 1994>Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad(1994–1995)>Neon Genesis EvangelionOctober 4, 1995 – March 27, 1996
Yuta and Akane are the same person.So in a way you could say that they have no relationship.
Akane x Yuta really had more chemistry with each other.
>>181726741You were the first person to bring up tokusatsu:>>181726305
>>181726699I've never seen such a bullshit post
Maybe if the hands in the OP were Yuta and Akane or something, but it's either Yuta and Rikka or Akane and Rikka. Rikka is the connection regardless.
>>181726699>Gridman doesn't really need to follow tokusatsu rules because it's doing its own thing.It's following the rules of the toku gridman show already, though.
>>181726795At least try harder anon>>181726825That isn't me, my first post in this thread is>>181726619which I point out having more references of something doesn't mean shit if they have no meaning. Many Ultras Series references before episode 9 is just for the sake of reference (UltraSeven 21, Blac King, bunch of Powered kaiju,...), SSSS.Gridman story or theme has nothing to do with them
>>181726925That anon doesn't even know that show exists.
>>181719945this is so cute, sauce?
>>181726899Yuta and Akane's relationship isn't at the core of the story. Amemiya mentioning Yuta closing the distance with Rikka and Rikka and Akane facing each other. Hasegawa mentioned the Gridman Alliance being able to connect with Akane and singled out Rikka's relationship with Akane as the key element of the story. Pretending Yuta and Akane are supposed to have this deep connection is silly. Even Anti is more likely to save Akane than Yuta as an individual.
>>181726925I know the tokusatsu Gridman exists. I'm the person who brought up Digifer's tentacle to begin with you dumbass.
>>181726925The idea that a franchise with several dozens spin-offs and more in other mediums always follows a set of rules is retarded, let alone a whole fucking gerneNot to mention how much creativity is required in Tokusatsu in the first place to overcome the limitation of the medium
>>181726405Literally a streamthot
>>181726699The staff can't ruins suspense and expectations of the storycould not kill the suspense.
>>181726551If Akane was a literal god, she could just make this world perfectly to her taste rather than including a bunch of things that piss her off and make her want to kill people. Plus she wouldn’t be losing to Gridman week after week. And on top of that, people she’s “created” (Rikka and Utsumi) broke free from the control of a Kajiura she created. I seriously doubt she’s as omnipotent as a literal always god. And I’m still keeping a foot in the “Alexis is the real creator” door just in case. If Akane is the real creator after all, why would she need his help to make Kaiju?
>>181727067That's just silly.
>>181727045>The idea that a franchise with several dozens spin-offs and more in other mediums always follows a set of rules is retardedGridman only has 3 entries, with this being the third and that animation festival thing "Denko Choujin: Boys Invent Great Hero" which just showed the events of the toku show and then takeshi turning into Gridman Sigma, is the second. Assuming you meant the whole ultra-series, outside of "trying to break the mold" series like nexus and ultra galaxy, ultras have a set of rules and things. some things change, but largely the staples remain the same. I don't know what you're trying to get at.
>>181727124dude saucenao returned nothing and the filename doesn't give me enough clue
>>181726923Rikka can be an idealized version of Akane.
>>181727062>>181726445Dunno, she looks like a modest lady, wears the most amount of clothes among them all and never reveals her face, even
>>181727178Stop typing like a mongoloid, you fucking retard.Ask politely like a normal person.
I am really enjoying Gridman. It might be the most enjoyable anime of the season for me.Rikka is great, best girl. I also like Akane of course.
>>181727175There's also the Sigma magazine which I feel is no less important than the 5 minute short.
>>181727006they can't ruins suspense and expectations of the story, Yuta hater
>>181727237You are replying to yourself.
>>181727239but i thought i already asked inoffensively, oh well can you please point me to the source of this drawing, anon?
>>181727253I had no idea that existed. It sounds neat. Has anybody scanned and/or translated it?
>>181727269Digifer's tentacle is straight up in the OP.
>>181727320Rikka is who Akane wants to be.Akane wants to feel like a human with friends and a happy life.So, if we follow this argument, Rikka is practically a human.
>>181727219Rikka exists in the real world as confirmed by the ED.
>>181727377Only place I found scans is on the Ultra wiki. I haven't seen any proper translations, but someone posted a general synopsis on /m/ a little while ago. It's all pretty basic.
>>181727302>Anybody who disagrees with me is my boogeymanYou know, you've been doing that for two months.
>>181727444Copypasta in 3... 2... 1...
>>181727444>>181727473You were missing from this thread for hours and it was fine when you were gone. Yes suddenly "everyone" in the thread agrees with you? As fucking if.
>>181727175You need to watch more then. Even between 1966 Ultraman and UltraSeven there's a huge shift in tone, story structure and designs, and the massive change between Taro and Leo literaally crippled the series for sevẻal years.Same with Seven Evolution and Seven X when compares to the most of Heisei Ultra, the story focus less on human characters or any kind of ethical lesson, but on mystery, conspiracy and the like, the Ultra barely have any screen time compare to other series as they are not the focus. Even the newest one is trying to break the fomula of New Generation, it isn't there yet but it's trying.My point still stand, even in one big franchise there's no concrete set of rules always present, let alone a whole fucking gerne where the big three being Sentai, Rider and Ultras have little in common, ignoring smaller but also influential like Garo, Gransazer and Metal Heroes or indie shit like Evolver
>>181727424ED is just fanservice and marketing in order to sell products
>>181727088I wasn't talking about an Abrahamic God and regardless the show and its characters specifically refer to her as one.
>>181727609 Pretty decent episode. The style and direction continue to be Gridman's strength even if think the script is becoming a little less so. After the big reveal, everything afterword just felt as we have been in some weird holding pattern with plot by having the characters dancing around the main subject.
>>181727609>I wasn't talking about an Abrahamic God and regardless the show and its characters specifically refer to her as one.I know that’s not what you meant. But she doesn’t seem to be a god in almost any sense at all given how everything around her is so irritating to her (as she frequently shows with her temper tantrums at various things, if she could change things to her liking then why doesn’t she?), constantly losing to Gridman, and now her “created” characters resisting her. She can hardly be called a god in any sense other than figurative when she can’t control anything and almost nothing is going her way anymore. They call her the god of this world because she created it, but it doesn’t even seem like she has any real control of what she creates, if so much ticks her off. All part of why I think it might be revealed that Alexis is the real creator. But that’s just a guess based on this.
>>181727591>the uniforms were worn by Rikka and Akane in the pastBy this point it's obvious it isn't.
>>181727686The real "creator" is Digifer's tentacle.
>>181727710Alexis is in Rikka's dream too
>>181727631Yea, it feels like they're trying to have both normal, chillax school life but the series is flying towards it's conclusion, it just feels weird. They can't really have both at this point.
>>181727736Is Alexis part of the flashback or an external element? Like Akane in Yuta's.
>>181727686This is all kinda besides the point here. She probably isn't really the God of this world but it's not about what we think, the point was about what the Yuuta gang think and their lack of confrontation. I just made a point that they have good reason to be cautious and they do. No, she can't control four people plus whatever the hell the Neon Genesis Gang are but there's no indication she's lost control over anybody else so she's still pretty powerful. You may disagree and that's fine because the subjectivity of whether Akane is a God isn't going to be something that the Yuuta gang would be bothered splitting hairs about. In any case, whilst I'm not overly familiar with Non-Abrahamic Gods, I am familiar enough with them to know that control isn't what makes them Gods, it's power. And whilst we may know that it's Alexis that brings life to Akane's designs, the Yuuta gang don't know that. They also probably don't realise how much things weren't going Akane's way either, until maybe now.
>>181727787Alexis is part of the flashback
I want Yuuta to fuck Rikka while Akane watches.
>>181727804well it's not just "about being Abrahamic or not, basically all gods in many religions hold basically the same power in cases of religions with multiple gods like greek gods or egypt gods, while a single god don't hold all the powers, all of that gods share some "common powers" which are said to control the peoples life, like powers to kill and destroy places at they will or "heal" peoples, some of our currently "single god" also happened in others religions, things like having "demi gods childrens" build and destroy things, it's not was exclusive to Abrahamic god, if you go and read a lot of "greek" myth and bla bla bla you will find a lot of "supernatural god like" feats, which really akane currently lack. So far the only real feat she have is "creating the world and peoples" and "teleport/blink to whatever she want and not dying from fall, excluding that she being "pretty weak" "for a god".So far for me akane going to "redemption route" is more due to her being a "hot big boobs chicken (waifus) than she really diservers any redemption without any punishment. She currently still a pretty psycho/crazy murder without any real attachment to that world than her desire to "play" her niponic real life size"the sims".So far the only thing which could make us don't want see her dead could because she is not going on a full bloodlust murderer and she only killed "so far on screen" a single person and normally she only try to focus to kill only what she feel diservers to die not the "whole town" but this also don't means which if peoples get killed during the battle she will feel bad about it, so far she showed none sort of empathy toward anything even Rikka is more like one of her "dolls".
>>181723891Reminds me of Tem from Beastars. That nigga is still being brought up posthumously in conversation, and the series is up to 100 chapters or some shit currently.
>>181727537>1966 Ultraman and UltraSeven there's a huge shift in toneI didn't include Seven because it wasn't meant to be part of ultraman originally. And you still listed just a couple of slight differences. Outside of a few exceptions, you're always gonna get motw, a fighting team, being an ultra is a secret until the end, etc. You keep bringing this further and further out from Gridman to prove your point that Gridman isn't going to follow the rules, but all you're doing is just making it more confusing.
>>181728209>You keep bringing this further and further out from Gridman to prove your point that Gridman isn't going to follow the rules,That isn't my point from the begining, my point was there is no such thing as tokusatsu rules>>181726741
>>181727852Borr, Vit, and Max's expression's here make zero sense.Unless they're actually doing a cringey School Days re-enactment for the cultural festival.
>>181728318Sure there are. But just because the rules exist doesn't mean they have to be followed. Akibaranger did a good job of playing with them.
>>181728411You mean motifs and fomulas that work, sure. Rules mean guideline that must be follow, those don't exist
>>181728318>>181726741>There's no such thing as "tokusatsu rules"only yuri and waifu fags blindly believe this.
>>181728519>implying Tokusatsu is a limited gerne that lack creativity and only has few patternsfaggot
>>181728449You're getting fixated on semantics here, dude and I'm a little worried you're missing the point about SSSS.Gridman is going to be very similar to Gridman because tsupro is coproducing it among other reasons.
>>181728571>implying you're just projecting your own tastes and desires into the show.
>>181728603It's really a totally different thing that explicitly focuses on one aspect of the original.
>>181728688>the writer is lying!
>>181728603That isn't what I am trying to sayI don't have any problem with SSSS.Gridman playing around with concept from DCG or going with motifs, my original point (the very first post I made) was towarded some anon who think SSSS.Gridman has many Brave references mean Brave is the direct influent for it, which is stupid.The "toku rules" pissed me off because it implies the gerne is lackluster, when it is one of the most creative and influential gerne Japan has to offer
SSSS.Gridman is a show that retroactively looked back on the original and decided that Takeshi was the most important part of the story.
>>181719832>fufufu it's all a simulation and you can't get out fufufu
>>181728720This is just your point of view.
>>181728785SSSS is beginning to get a bit messy as a story.
>>181728815No, SSSS.Gridman is really essentially this:>>181728785
>>181728688Stop group everything with shipping and headcannon shit anon, it is about show direction, special effect, animation techniques and story structureCreativity =/= adding LGBT relationship, stop being retared
>>181728761>who think SSSS.Gridman has many Brave references mean Brave is the direct influent for it, which is stupid.Oh that, yeah that's pretty stupid, I gotta agree there. And I see what you mean as far as "toku rules" goes, but I generally take "rules" as "genre-defining tropes" rather than "it has to have these or else it doesn't count"
>>181727302Cap the IP count at the bottom then faggot.
>>181728839Stop looking at Yuta at the center of the story and focus on Akane instead. Episode 9 WAS about Akane.>>181728852What the fuck are you talking about? Who the fuck are you talking to?
>>181728856Well maybe it's just my way of interpreting words. No harm done
>>181728911The catchcopy of the show comes from what Gridman told Takeshi in the final episode.
>>181728898It's more the idea of the world being someone's imagination.That's when you start to engage with it less. Suddenly it's a deus ex machina animation and that usually makes a weak story... unless it has a matrix twist. Which it hopefully does have.
>>181729003What does that have to do with the fact that SSSS.Gridman thinks Takeshi was the most important part of Gridman?
>>181729031No I mean that was the one I meant to reply to
>>181728839Not really. How do you figure?
>>181729046see >>181728983There's a reason why this trope is frowned up by writers. It's hard to do right.
So, do i need watch this anime or i can just skip it. Becouse, all what a saw it is cgi mecha in trailer. Is it have a good plot or maybe some fun?
>>181729101There's only CGI in the fight scenes. And it's not that bad later on. It's also only like 5% of the show.It's mostly about the characters and the mysteries around them.
>>1817291012bh, the fights aren't really the focus of this show. It's more about the construction and perception of our reality.And Akane's delicious thighs.
I think this show needs character that cannot be controlled by Akane. It lacks conflict as she currently controls it all.Perhaps the alien? Or maybe another human character? Or maybe even another "god" like her.
>>181729188>And Akane's delicious thighs.?
>>181728983Since this show follows from the original as we found out in episode 6 it's all but confirmed that they're in a matrix-like world. Simply put, the cyber and real world collided together in their city which is kinda like its own reality now which is controlled by Alexis and Akane. The people in it are real too.
>>181729308Episode 9 proves she literally doesn't control them.
>>181719945Any version of people throwing bricks at her?
Remember in episode 1 how those objects fell from the sky? Strange considering that the virtual world is up in the sky.
>>181729442Is that image a parody of something?What's the original?
>>181729608Where are the bricks?That was actually pretty nice.
>>181729346I'm only half way through it. Derp.
>>181729095I think that's more your expectation of where the show is headed making the current events seem messy. When in reality, since we don't know the outcome yet, it isn't.
>>181729792Yeah I know I'm predicting where it is going, but the trope is still there and has been criticised even in Greek times.
>>181729887They're not in an actual dream apart from in episode 9 if that makes sense.
>>181729101It's not all CGI. A lot of the action sequences are traditionally animated with certain sequences of CGI peppered in. It's like a modern movie switching from basic picture framing to IMAX resolution occasionally. If you're invested in the story (which is great) the means by which the action is represented no longer matters.Basically, the CGI moments don't bother me at all.
What concept is the recent episode adding to this show?It's almost like Murphy's Law (probably something similar but different, just mistaking that concept) with the way they all realised it was a dream. Or has it introduced more the concept of a pre-determined path (determinism?)
>>181729955Yeah I actually liked that dream sequence and the way the characters still went along their paths. Now it's less deus ex, more a battle with (the real) god.
>>181730142it's introducing simulated reality
>>181730196No, it's more introducing the facade of a simulated reality that covers the "devil" in the details.
Cool: RikkaCute: AkaneSexy: HassIs this correct?
>>181730583>Is this correct?No.Cool: Rikka/Akane/HassCute: Rikka/Akane/HassSexy: Rikka/Akane/Hass
>>181728898stop self-inserting as Akane, faggot
>>181728785>>181729031only you think so, akane/waifufag
>>181729308>I think this show needs character that cannot be controlled by Akane.>>181729346Episode 7
>>181728839When you look back at the first episode, Amemiya has really set up the story to be centered around Akane.
Hey Akane is teasing Rikka again.https://twitter.com/ytn_gd/status/1070845372656799744
>>181729887The problem is that the fans of other genres always try to adapt the shows according to your favourite genre (genres), then they start to fantasize, design, argue and create false expectations for the show according to their favourite genre (genres), completely ignoring all the rules, settings and tropes that exist in the show genre in question.The best example of this are the mecha shows.
>>181719832when will trigger give up on trying to turn this shit-filled ship around, and just make it into an ecchi harem?
Is this meant to be yuri?
>>181730874God, I want to fuck Utsumi.
>>181730813take your waifufag glasses off and stop self-inserting as Akane

When I think about it, Trigger will either save or ruined Christmas for this year
>>181731593Probably, we will find out in 5 days.
>>181725884Probably one of the most OP Kaiju he created, desu.
>>181731683Better include the one from 2nd episode too >>181731432
>>181731695Akane's character song will likely spoil the most because Amemiya wrote it himself so there's a very good chance it'll just spoil her past and everything. Good thing it's coming out on the 12th so episode 10 would've already given us most of that stuff.
>>181731754They're all being released on the 12th I think. I'd imagine this episode will have a lot of flashbacks and explain nearly everything apart from Yuta's amnesia.
>>181731683>episode 7black? What happened?
>>181731575he's a joke. a ton of yuri-related pics/posts/bait were posted, but he won't say anything.
>>181732154You are told iver and over again that the reason is you're posting images to spite people. It has nothing to do with what the actual image is.

>>181720329>>181720239or because chinks have disgusting teeth.

>>181727325And then he responds with nothing lmao.
please post calibur

>>181730874>more official trap YutaGod yes I am so pumped.
>>181733470A skirt suits him so much it's scary.
>>181733266>>181733292just like all the other shows with a male MC. That is nothing but fanservice and fap material for fat guys.
>>181733500Except that in those other shows which you are referring to, the girls actually show romantic interest in the male MC.
>>181732768The water fountain and the soap are also references to the director's short story.
Took you long enough eh, jobber
>>181733488Yeah same, I was really surprised by how natural it looks. It's not even the usual super-short skirt that they usually do to make it lewder, which I think adds to how nice it looks on him.
>>181733333>>181733384>>181733534Get yourself a whore and stop shitting up the thread with unnecessary shit dawg.

>>181733619Based Alexis delivering a savage beatdown to the virgin Gridman. I can't wait. The world will be a better place without Gridman in it.
>>181733333It's implying that this is your first anime and your first time seeing a poster like that. Do you believe these two are dykes as well?
>>181733814Alice and Asuna are romantically attracted to the MC while Akane and Rikka have shown no such attraction towards Yuta though. On the contrary, Akane and Rikka are far closer with each other than they are with Yuta. This does kind of imply yuri.
I think we are personally going to get some cute Rikka and Yuta moments in this episode along with some heartwarming friendship between Rikka and Akane. What about you guys?
>>181733970>Rikka and Yuta ever getting a moment togetherBoy you are going to be disappointed.
ME WO SAMASEBOKURA NO SEKAI GA NANIMONO KA NI SHINRYAKU SARETERU ZO
>>181733914>Akane and Rikka are far closer with each other than they are with Yuta.I love how you completely miss the point of Akane's and Rikka's intentionally warped "relationship" and try and twist it to make it fit into some fanfiction-tier romantic bullshit.
>>181733914awesome fetish fanfiction, by following this line of reasoning, 98% of harem MCs are gays.
>>181733914>This does kind of imply yuri.No it doesn't. Name one example from the actual show that implies that either Rikka and Akane are lesbians. You say that they've shown no attraction to Yuta but at the same time the've shown no attraction to each other either.The point of my post was to show retards like you that official merchandise like that exists for essentially any show with two primary female leads.
What exactly is Akane - Rikka relationship?Kaijumaster and Kaiju?
i want the /u/fags to leave
>>181734187Caretaker of jobber
>>181734194Anti is pretty cute.
>>181734187A fabricated, one sided one invented by Akane because she's unable to make friends.
>>181734187Rikka is a Akane's idealized version and what she wants to be.
>>181734001>Boy you are going to be disappointedDoubt it. Though I'm sure I won't be as disappointed as delusional yurifags after this episodes confirms that there is zero romantic undertones in Rikka and Akane's friendship.
>>181734216Except this proves my point. They are far closer with each other than they ever were with Yuta and by the end Rikka will gain free will and still choose to forgive Akane anyways. This is lowkey yuri stuff, anon.
>>181734279I'm not sure what your badly written post means or who you think I am but I really just want the /u/fags to fuck off to their containment board(s).
>>181734292So two girls that are friends with no romantic undertones at all with each other is yuri then? Wow! What a broad and all encompassing genre with an intelligent fanbase.

>>181734662Like semen from akane throbbing cock of course.
What is Thunderbabe going to do in the next episode? Any theories yet?
>>181734730Fucking die lmao
>>181734730Next episode probably nothing.Last episode? Probably something pretty gay with Ramo.
Should Akane die?She's just bloody pathetic.She is playing god but is neither omnipotent, nor omniscient, and most importantly, nor omnibenevolent.
>>181734746DELET>>181734795>Next episode probably nothing.awww, bummer.>Last episode? Probably something pretty gay with Ramo.nice!
>>181734821She's cute, though.
>>181734821Well she certainly wants to die. Unfortunately she's unable to do so. What does that make her?
>>181734730She'll start dating Ramo in the last episode.
Rikka and Akane are
>>181734903* cute, good friends, and maybe a little gay.
>>181734903Best friends with yuri undertones. Overly touchy-feely with each other.
>>181734821I think she'll redeem herself at the very and with the help of the Gridman Alliance showing her that she's not alone. As to whether she's going to survive the finale, who knows? While I personally don't think she'll die, I do think she sacrifice herself in a way that has her still being "alive" at the end. Kind of like what Hasegawa did with Amira in Shingeki no Bahamut.
>>181734216You have no idea, anon-chan.Yurifags love abusive relationships.This situation is perfect.
When is Alexis going to ask Akane if she feels in charge?I think that will finally break her.
>>181734903Cute friends who want to fuck the same guy. Should just give us an OT3 ending desu.
>>181735096The key word which you're all avoiding is "relationship".
>>181735096I mean, what exactly is so abusive about it?Sure, there's some pretty iffy morality of "control".But she literally asks nothing of Rikka. Doesn't force her to give information about Gridman, doesn't force her to come over to her side or kill her friends. This "programming" hasn't really effected Rikka's life at all.
>>181735355It triggers my OCD that he just drags his back legs.
>>181735378Think about the man inside
>>181719832Maybe she doesn’t find it appropriate to laugh out loud to the point that your mouth is showing, or she has bad breath. Either way it doesn’t matter, she THiCCC
Who's gonna get Yuta'd?
>>181735391So this is the power of twintails...
>>181735512There's always the option of a yuri end.
Calibur is no more than a grown up mortal Death the Kid
>>181735512Hopefully both, but I"m putting my money on Rikka.
>>181735605Nice try Takeshi.
When will Akko talk?
>>181735645you should stop embarrasing yourself
>>181735190I have no idea what you're trying to say.Anyway, "connections"(「繋がり」) is the show's underlying theme. The connections between Akane and the alliance trio. Rikka and Akane's relationship is going to be fine.
I think I know how Yuta is going to save Akane lads.
>>181735875>Implying it's not going to be Rikka saving Akane with yuri flavored friendship
>>181735914I'm afraid not lad.
>>181736000Why would cute yuri be something to fear?
>>181736150Can't fear something that doesn't exist anon.
>>181736172100% sure you can. Most phobias are based on things that don't actually exist.
That cat roller is already there in the first episode but where's the cat
>>181736358its not only for cats in japanactually it is not even called a cat roller in japan so
>>181736150fujo shit never bothered me, mainly because fujos stick to their own threads, and don't get mad if you say that their favorite characters are straight in a non-fujo thread. When they do appear outside their own threads it's usually only a couple posts.Yurifags will attack anyone who implies that a female character isn't gay, they'll shit up threads with hundreds of images and shitposts, and they start crying if their female character shows interest in a guy.They also think some bizarre shit like "a woman can't cuck a man", "watching straight porn is gay", and "all girls are secretly gay".
>>181736358>cat rollerexcse me wtf r u talkin 'bout, Willis?
>>181736469You know, cat roller
>>181736429You're the only one who ruins threads here. Everyone else just posts thread relevent content while you soam things to try and attack people.
Just one more sleep until Saturday and one episode closer to Yuta hopefully fusing some worlds.
>>181736552Only thing Yuta will fuse is my dick to his mouth.
>>181736552I miss Build. Why is Zi-O so shit?
Will Yuta/Rikka happen tomorrow?
>>181734414>ironicMy love for Akane is genuine
This week is Akane and Rikka's backstory finally explained, next week will be Yuta getting his memories back and and most likely resolution to whatever he has going on with Rikka and then the finale. Can't wait. Hopefully the minor romance subplot is handled with grace. As much as I like Yuta and Rikka, I'd be bad writing if Rikka suddenly started going doki doki for Yuta after how distant she's been from him. At best they'll make another promise and the show will end on a high note for future prospects between them.
>>181736532Wow, you're actually obsessed with the idea that >everybody loves yuri and likes to talk about yuri in a thread about a non-yuri series.>and only one person in the whole world doesn't loves Yuri in a thread about a non-yuri series.Well, snap out of it. People are tired of seeing yurifags "magically" turning straight girls into imaginary lesbians for magically shipping them together and pushing their retarded projections and fanfictions too hard in every every single damn thread about a damn non-yuri series.
>>181736730You think she's smiling at Yuta in these scene?
Was there a character sheet with the heights of everyone listed?
>>181736758She preparing herself to go out.
>>181736657>>181736674Don't you feel sad and pathetic for living your life like this. Literally consumed with trying to "troll" with shipping.
>>181737001I think we're getting some yuri soon.
>>181736731You know it's really obvious who you are because threads can gonfoe hours with out you shitting them up even when they have yuri in them. Then you show and start spamming meta posts and "her images" you think will spite people.
>>181737065>xdd I said wtf and changed me typing style inside epic!
>>181736581Based.Gay as fuck tho
>>181737101Do you actually think you make yourself look smart when you do this?
>>181737225Can we just discuss Akane and Rikka's budding yuri romance instead?
>>181733333>Those digits Based.
>>181736919I can't find it any where.
Has the song in the first PV played yet?
>>181735540>not harem with both of them and Anti as a trap
>>181737342You try to pretend people can't easily tell you're posting out of spite. Though, more like desprete anger at this point. Because you're upset no one falls for your false flagging.
>>181737460Have you ever considered killing yourself? Because you should.
>>181737462Let's post more yuri.
>>181737493We need more Akane/Rikka yuri fanart.
>>181737493>Have you ever considered killing yourself?Yes.>Because you should.But then I wouldn't be able to piss off anon.
Why are these threads so weird?
What if there's yuri but Rikka rejects her and calls Akane a fag?
>>181737675Wouldn't be surprised if that's what happened and that's why Akane tried to kill herself
>>181737675>>181737716one of the two main heroines is lesbian in a show with a male main protagonist /u/ has hit bottom.
>>181737528>>181737589>>181737598>>181737690You never make anyone mad. You just deluded yourself into thinking you do. Which makes you pathetic as fuck. And so does you posting shit tonspute people.
Why cant hetero and /u/fags get along?
>>181737861It's literally just one guy who dies the "anti yuri" shit and tries to fake a "flame war" in these threads.
>>181737861Because the two anons who argue against each other are the same person.
>>181737861If the show had actual yuri in it I wouldn't mind the presence of /u/, but it doesn't yet they keep coming into these threads and shitposting about how Akane and Rikka are lesbians when literally nothing even slightly indicates that. On top of that there are only three episodes left and then only romantic subplot is Yuta's one sided crush. And anytime you try to talk about said subplot some anon gets really mad and starts crying. The previous thread was so shit it even got autosaged.
>>181737961>>181737933You will never convince anyone that the people telling you to stop trying to fake a "flame war" are actually you and making both sides of the posts.
>>181737991The only time you ever talk about the "sub plot" is directly after you show up in the thread and spam " durrrr yurifag nigger fuk off" or something of the like. So it makes it obvious you brought up the subject to try and spite people.
is true that Rikka and Yuta it's happening?
Is the poster above me a bot? I literally see the same exact posts being made in every Gridman thread.
>>181738151I never spammed anything. You on the other hand constantly seem to have a problem whenever anyone tries to discuss Yuta and Rikka or even Yuta and Akane.
>>181738155>>181738160Literally couldn't make it any more obvious you're trying to attack people. And the reason posts get remade so much is because you never address anything anyone says to you. While you always repeat yourself.
>>181738116>>181738151stop reposting your deleted posts
>>181737826You're right. Both should be lesbians and the MC should ship them.
>>181738160It's one really dedicated autist. He keeps ban evading.
>>181738188yurifags hate male characters
>>181738155The endgame its yuta and akane because the true main villain is rikka
>>181738204nice headcanon, sis
>>181738197>>181738188>>181738170No, you spam constantly. And you always post out of spite. See >>181737342 where you literally just reply to a "Yuri" post with a "het" post to try and hurt the person you reply to. It's very obvious.
>>181737861The yurifags are just enjoying the show while the yuri hater is constantly mad for some reason. No one cares though.
>>181738256>>181738223>>181738209You act like every can't see your obnoxious "anti yuri" posts get deleted all the time and that it's not obvious you are ban evading.
Episode 12 is titled "Awakening" Utsumi will creampie Akane in her sleep and wake her up.
>>181738309Will there be kaiju roleplay as foreplay?
>>181738266>>181738301>I love yuri and hate heteverybody knows that.
>>181738309Literally obsessed with try to say anything you can do harass other people.
>>181738333Why can't you ever answer anything said to you.
>>181738155I'm afraid so.
>>181738408Men who fantasize about not having a penis.
>>181738552This shit right here. Hot lesbians are fine, but not when they're idolized or put on a pedestal or considered in any way superior to heterosexual girls. The draw is to men who've been taught that men are inferior to women and wish they were women and that everyone was a woman. They're an embarrassment.
