No thread for one of the two /m/ shows this season?
>>17123043It doesn't look great, from the girl standing in front alone.
Tatsunoko's NTR story thread?
>>17123047The fights are good from today's episode.
>>17123059Hmm, I do like big cannons and elaborate HUDs.
CG looks decent to real good.
>>17123106It's fine, we got this as a trade-off.
The CG is really, really good by anime standards. Pity that the fight choreography is amateurishly bad. Everything else also looks like complete trash and, unlike something like Planet Lucifer, this (probably) doesn't even have a good OP.
>>17123106I still can't tell what the fuck is going on in half the posted clips, because they're exaggerating speed and shaking the camera, but it's better than it used to be. I think the industry has started to come down off the "let's complicate the designs because now computers do everything" high they've been on.
>>17123108The absolute fucking state of Tatsunoko
>>17123137What's that? You want more?
Maybe because I was really shocked by that imouto anime from last season and Merch Medsen (don't know how to write the name of that abomination), but I found those QUALITY webms really tame, cute even, Tatsunoko itself has done much worse.
it's not Gundam
>>17123115Because those are short webms. Fight is actually really well done and tactical. I hope it stays this way.
Eh, there were some QUALITY moments but it's okay overall. Main girl is great and CGI was decent to good.
I was going into this expecting the CGI to be complete garbage but was pleasantly surprised. Hopefully they can keep up the quality. I want to give Yuki-sama an heir before her 13th birthday
So what is the the twist?
>>17123713They're keeping the war secret from the princess and pretending they have good relations
>>17123729Oh and the princess will be lesbians with that other girl right?
>>17123733A man can dream. Loli x older woman is hot
>>17123055Their design looks like something from a Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots reboot.
>>17123733Prety sure she's in love with Joshua.
>>17123756That's fine too. I'm not a mentally ill /u/ anon. But this "twist" is rather common and was even in Akame ga Kill. Still it's like it's unbelievable or retarded so I'll give this show a try.
>>17123758Yuki seems the "let's befriend fucking everybody" type, and judging by the ending she's gonna be on her list. Then again nowadays seems like girls can't be fiends with other girls without /u/fags call them gay, so there's that.
>>17123047She's actually pretty goodhttps://i.4cdn.org/wsg/1546648536861.webmcontrary to the minor klutziness she's not just a figurehead and can do tactical shit in coordination with her bodyguard
>>17123140how high are those fucking kids
So which Tatsunoko show is this secretly a reboot of ?
>>17123059Are those not live rounds or what? Did nothing to the buildings.
>>17123856That scene takes place in a training simulation
>>17123856It was a simulator which doesn't make sense either since it's shown another building is destroyable.
>>17123043>>17123108>>17123140>>17123704>>17123808Alright guys, very funny. Which one of you put a dress on that piece of wood fencing and paraded it around like it was a princess?
>>17123871Flat is justice
It might be because I'm coming straight from voltron's crappy cgi mecha fights but the mechs here look great for cgi.
>>17123862A single shell isn't enough to totaled a building, count how many time did she shot at the building.
Is Joshua evil?
>>17123996What truly is "evil"?Regardless, he's a sacrifice.
>Joshua consistently portrayed as main character alongside Yuki>Pretty skilled pilot>See pic>Not in ED, Yuki is holding hands with some blue girl insteadJoshua is fucking dead isn't he?
>>17124791>Joshua is fucking dead isn't he?Maybe he'll go the Slaine route after learning about the Princess's FORBIDDEN LOVE.What I'm actually hoping for is that the retarded /u/spammer doesn't latch onto this show & turn discussion threads into a steaming heap of faeces.
>>17124791Surely they won't be THIS blatant
>>17124979He is spouting "passion and will" in a show called the Price of Smiles. He's a walking corpse.
WHAT'S THE PRICE OF A SMILE
>>17124981gosh, i fucking wish
>>17125123We will learn in the coming episodes. It's probably a life.
>>17124791It's really just a question of how long he lasts rather than if he'll die. He could die in the next episode or two or he might live until the last few episodes. It could go either way at this point.
>>17123043This show is way too predictable.Guy will go missing, Princess will learn the truth, will mop because she will think he is dead and complain about how naive she was, will want to involve herself, the other heroine and her tactic commando will attack their ship to kidnap/kill her but plan will fail someway so Princess and the blue team girl will get lost together and will have to travel together and understand each other. Princess will realize the world outside of the kingdom is a shithole so she will understand why the other heroine fights, the other heroine will understand that the Princes is a very good person and not the tyrant she thought she was. The boy will re-appear and will depart on a trip to "rescue" the Princess and will face the blue side heroine. At the very end some asshole, probably the guy with the beard will reveal HE KILLED PRINCESS PARENTS! because they wanted peace with Empire or some shit and try to convince Princess there is no room for everybody and princess going "you won't know until you try!" The role of the second heroine will be reduce to rescue the Princess all the time and ocassionaly fighting with the blonde guy that still thinks she is a danger for the princess. And everything will end with the princess, now not being a princess any more, working with everyone for a better world despite having no real solutions to solve the problems that caused the war in first place.That's it, there you have your show.
wow, cool robotsand cute princess
>>17125290>>17124791Episode titles make it sound like he will die in either episode 3 or episode 8.
>>17125686Can you post them?
>>17125699I only have the first eight episode titles:Ep1 ソレイユの少女Ep2 戦乱の真実Ep3 微笑みの兵士Ep4 希望の選択Ep5 分隊の一夜Ep6 運命の岐路Ep7 王宮のひまわりEp8 最後の伝言Soleil girlTruth of warSmiling warriorHopeful choiceOne night of the squadCrossroads of the fateSunflower of the royal palaceFinal words
>>17125706>1 DESPAIR >2 DESPAIR >3 DESPAIR >4 DESPAIR >5 DESPAIR >6 DESPAIR >7 DESPAIR >8 DESPAIR
>>17125706>One night of the squadSounds like a death flags episode.
>>17125722Yeah but for the blue side.
>>17125686>expecting deaths in a show like thisYou have learnt nothing
>>17125813I suppose you think Joshua will live and impregnate the princess.
>>17123106>>17123115The problem with mecha CG has never really been the geometry, it's all texturing, lighting, shading, and framerate. Usually, the CG REALLY sticks out from the 2D stuff due to overdetailed textures (see lots of old Gonzo shows), poor shadows/shading (Eva Rebuild/Gundam: The Origin/a bunch of other stuff), and/or bad frame rates (almost all 100% CG anime).
>>17124791that's one of the most blatant death flags i've ever seen
>>17124791Nah, I think it will just cost his own smile to protect hers.
>>17123043How long until she suffers?
>>17126835Only Joshua will suffer.
>>17126842>implying his suffering won't wombo combo into her suffering
Why is a 12 year old princess entrusted with the fate of an entire country just because her parents died?Why does her first address to the nation look like an idol concert, complete with glow sticks and ridiculous crowd reactions?Why are all the outfits and hairstyles so needlessly elaborate (and therefore difficult to animate)?Why are there twin characters whose last name is literally “Vanquish”?Why does one of them oppose the princess’ rule on the grounds of her naiveté, only to be charmed by that same trait fifteen seconds later?Why do two high-ranking, ostensibly well-informed members of the government suddenly explain their country’s history to each other, complete with a holographic display that looks like a video game menu screen?Why was there a need to refer to a futuristic-looking game with a green 6×5 board and pushpin-looking pieces as “chess”?Why doesn’t the princess have anything better to do than to watch her bodyguard engage in a CG simulated mech battle with the Vanquish twins?Why does she suddenly become a strategic genius midway through the battle, despite having lost horribly to her advisor at “chess” (and then questioning whether strategic thinking was “really something she needed”) just thirty minutes earlier?Why are anime characters still vowing to “protect her smile” in 2019?
>>17126894>Why is a 12 year old princess entrusted with the fate of an entire country just because her parents died?That's how monarchies work sometimes, although there's normally a regent does the heavy lifting, make the young prince or princess essentially a figurehead until they're older.>Why does her first address to the nation look like an idol concert, complete with glow sticks and ridiculous crowd reactions?Maybe to make her feel loved by the people. After all, being made monarch at such a young age is quite daunting.
So, thoughts on the actual mechs?
>>17126988The jet skirts are funny when they are all firing, the two on the right are nice but the tights to foot ratio is a bit weird.Colour scheme is muh dick though.
>>17126988I'm not a fan of those hollow ring things that the white ones have going on and the green ones are nice but their feet are too small.
>>17123055Oh that looks like good CGI
>>17126894jesus fucking christ, we're only one episode incalm your goddamn tits
>>17123043out of curiosity, what's the other mecha series this season?
>>17127148Revisions>netflix>entirely CGtell me if you're still interested
>>17127150>netflixwell...no. I'm not.
>>17127156And there we goso we're basically down to one Mecha show this seasonand it's looking like there won't be any mecha come spring
>>17127159I pray for Bones to deliver some mecha or mecha related shit this year. MAPPA is doing some mecha samurai fantasy shit for Netflix, but I don't know if it will be out this year.
>>17127194>BonesHow was AICO? I haven't seen anyone talking about it.
I think we can all agree that this should be the new Kannazuki no Miko and that dumb retard Joshua's best fate is just to fap to videos of Hime and Stella schlicking.
>>17127159>and it's looking like there won't be any mecha come springNon-gundam mecha you mean
>>17127436>RobiHachiThe heck is this?
>>17127436What the hell is Robihachi?
>>17127436>The Origin (TV ver)For what purpose
>>17127460It costs them next to nothing to recut the movie for TV airing, and they can put a not-so-important team on doing basically the most minimal of work. There will be maybe a few redrawn scenes, an OP that is 90% made out of cut and paste scenes from the movies set to music, and they can ride the merchandising train for the same goods for longer, or introduce more goods for the same line.
>>17127439>>17127441The anime's story is set in Neo Tokyo in the year G.C. (Galaxy Century) 0051, which marks a half century since first contact was made. Humans have obtained super light-speed navigation technology and formed a commonwealth of planets with aliens. A streak of bad luck is continuing for self-proclaimed freelance reportage writer Robby Yarge, who is around 30 years old. He fails at work, so his contract is cut. His girlfriend leaves him, he nearly dies in a traffic accident, and debt collectors come after him.One day, a bag snatcher steals Robby's bag, and a young man helps him. Hatchi Kita, an 18-year-old part-time worker, catches the criminal and returns Robby's bag. Robby offers him his gratitude and a meal in return. The pair discover they are complete opposites and soon part ways.However, Hatchi turns up again in Robby's life as a debt collector. Hatchi explains that it's his part-time job working for the loan shark Yan. A cat-and-mouse chase begins, and Yan's Finance president Yan takes his subordinates Aro and Gra along for the ride. Robby manages to elude Hatchi and escape to space while shaking off Yan's group. Robby thinks of escaping to Isekandar, a distant and legendary planet in the Milky Way that is said to bring happiness to those who go there. Though Robby thought he had escaped to space alone, he discovers Hatchi inside his spaceship. The two decide to travel across the galaxy together in search of Isekandar.
>>17127493Geez, another Double Decker already? Which studio is making this?
>>17126894>Why does one of them oppose the princess’ rule on the grounds of her naiveté, only to be charmed by that same trait fifteen seconds later?she was only pretending to be not retarded.Sci-fi setting royalty and peace princesses is a dumb idea in general. They'd be a figurehead monarchy at very best like the britbongs who are only worth keeping for the tourist bux and keeping the tabloid press alive but would be run out if they actually tried to exercise their political power.A strongman dictator to keep people in line during difficult times is understandable, but when they hand power over to their retarded 12 year old daughter who has no idea what she's doing then that's clearly not gonna last. People won't buy that muh divine right of kings this side of the Revolution.
>>17126894Welcome to "also aired" junk animu.
>>17123808>the crowd has fucking glowsticks>dumb 12 year old protag who is le epic klutzy monarch>somehow will become great ruler in 12 epsWhen did anime get so bad.
>>17126894Lack of creativity is the answer to all
>>17127748Even a trainwreck like FranXX is way better then this shit.
The CG is pretty good, but the choreography of the fight was a little off. And the twist at the end was a little unexpected, but it seems obvious in hindsight. Other than that, this was kind of an unremarkable first episode.
>>17127845Generic and bland>>>>>>>>>melodramatic nonsensical garbage
>>17127400AICO is kinda generic but otherwise a fun ride, twist is kinda dumb though and the ending is too happy.>>17128263this most of the time. i think this show could turn out entertaining if things turn out right but not great .
Egao no Chaika
>>17127729Or it's lazy writing
Just watched the first episode, until the capture the flag scene I found it very boring.>muh death flagsOh great, here comes TVTropes predictors. Going to be watching this and W'z this season because I have nothing else to do until Fafner Beyond airs.
>>17131411>Going to be watching thisWhy? Why torture yourself?
>>17131411Don't bother continuing, just drop this shit like everyone else.
>>17123043This was really awful. We didn't need two angles of the princess turning around nor did we need three POVS for her tumbling, poor direction overall and already says a lot from where this is heading. Characters are underwhelming. I wanted to give this a shot because it's made by Tatsunoko, which I think is a good studio. Sad it didn't deliver
>>17131465A lot of anime I like have wonky first episodes.>>17131474But who else will catalogue all the /m/inutia and put it on the /m/ wikia? If nothing else at least I can do that and have already analyzed what weapons the gards, squires, and krivs are usin'. That and I have never dropped and anime in my life.
>>17126894Because this show is shit, anon. You know it, I know it. Everyone here knows it. But these people are desperate to have some fun. They want to watch and see if it is salvageable despite the harsh reality of Episode 1's complete lack of production values, design or plain coherence.
>>17126988The first on the left took some thinking and balancing of shapes. The next one is okay too, but the rest is pretty subpar and generic.
>>17131500>the harsh reality of Episode 1's complete lack of production values, design or plain coherence.Episode 1 looked infinitely better than anything Planet With, Active Raid, Vividred Operation, Bokurano, Outlaw Star, Rayearth, Macross Plus, Gundam 0080, Dragon Pilot, SSSS Gridman, Luluco, Dai Shogun, IBO, Valvrave, or Wings of Rean ever did.
>>17131537Woah, don't out yourself like a complete retard so easily, man, i'm embarrassed for you! Those shows you listed have wildly different production values. What kind of dumbnut are you to compare this cheap garbage to Macross Plus, one of the best-looking mecha OVA in history?! 5 minutes of Macross Plus would bankrupt these shitters.
>>17131582>thinking Macross Plus is goodGet a load of this guy
>>17127436>2019 is trashSweet, I can finally work on my backlog.
>>17131537Fuck you Outlaw star is better than Bebop.
>>17131655Said nobody with a brain.
>>17131672Dumb cowboy shitard.
>>17131672U mad bro?
>>17127436So there's basically no mecha this year.
>>17123043I'll be heartbroken if I watch another episode of this terrible show. Does anyone understand what the actual f--k is going on?...All I got out of it was 12 year-old becomes ruler and capture the flag shenanigans.
>>17131774>12 year old girl is made Princess after her parents die in an experiment gone wrong>said experiment was to make this show's Unobtainium last longer>guy is a childhood who grew up with the princess and is a member of their military>the Kingdom is actually at war with the Empire but they kept that hidden from the princess
>>17126988Bad design and ugly cgi
>>17123853If I DL this and it's not full of Bruce Lee screams for five minutes an episode, I'm going to be severley disappointed.
>>17123055Why the fuck are they just spinning around each other like that?
>>17127436>SymphogearBut that is not mecha show.
>>17131774Imagine not understanding what is going on in such a simple show.It's always hilarious when the "shitting on this is objectively OK" mentality leads to retardation because retards following the hivemind think any and all complaints are acceptableI do think the show is bland and don't blame anyone for being uninterested and dropping it, but not understanding what's going on is completely retarded.
>>17133520Nah, it's perfectly fine to shit on something this bad.
>>17133688Read my post again, you retard. I said shitting on the show is fine. But you gotta not be a retard when doing so, or your shitting loses credibilitySaying it's bland and not interesting? FairSaying you don't understand it? It makes you look like a retard because how do you even fail to grasp such a simple bland show?. And this isn't even "this bad". Just very mediocre and bland. But agressively outright bad? Nah. I'd say this is a 5 or 6 (being VERY GENEROUS)/10. Something "this bad" would be a 2 or 3/10But maybe I'm just being autsitic here soTL;DR:Claiming you don't understand a simple show like this says more about your (lack of) intelligence than the show itself.
>>17133729No, it's just bad.
>>17123110>unlike something like Planet Lucifer, this (probably) doesn't even have a good OP.You don't even fucking know, you're just talking shit.
>>17133818We'll have to agree to disagree, then.Still: Doesn't change the main point that failing to get what happens in this show is retarded.Stop justifying nonsensical shitposting because it's against stuff you don't like.
Pretty cool little frontier and LL crossover.
>>17127436Also new Macross and that IBO spin off.
>>17124791This is just going to be Kannazuki no Miko all over again isn't it? He is even channeling his inner Soma.
>>17134401More like he will die.
>>17123043Mecha is dead if this is the shit they are pumping out now.
>>17136497It's been dead for a while.
Also possible he just turns evil.
>>17139405This shows not smart enough for even that.
I hope this isn’t another Macross Delta, a trainwreck that keeps me watching for the cute girls
>>17141831Delta was at least enjoyable. This is just shit.
>>17142858It's only been one episode
Since I don't think anyone will make another thread, episode 2 is out.
>>17143660There really isn't a need for a new thread. This one will do.
>>17143660>>17143740There probably won't be another thread for this, period.
>>17124791>Joshua is fucking dead isn't he?yup
>dying from this woundI don't get it.
>>17124916too late anon. the /u/ posters already are.i miss fujobait /m/ shows of old, new ones lack hot blood.>>17143768thats the state of most /m/ shows that arent a known ip or trigger now i feel like.desu i thought this ep was alright.
Trying to watch the new ep but KissAnime is taking forever to load its alpha server for some reason. This may take a hundred million years before the dawn of man as we knew him.
>>17143885>streamingThe cg gonna look extra shitty.
Why is it so grainy?
>>17143895>waiting for files to download>wanting anything higher than 480px anywayI stopped tolerating the long wait time and just went with the beta server, capitol WTF KissAnime. Anyway, lets see how the best anime this season is doing, so far it's better than Planet With.
So a chrars a new mech entirely or boosters for gards? I can't tell.
>>17143849Stuff like that can be pretty deadly especially with high entrance impact like from an explosion. Anime has conditioned you to think otherwise but that's the reality.
>>17143957New better engines with more power to almost fly and add more force to the railguns.
>>17144089Smile Status: Not protected
>>17143849Siege lasted 5 days. This was just the start.
The empire is gonna regret it pretty bad.
Wow I really didn’t expect Joshua to fucking die. Smile status: unprotected
>>17144389What rock did you come out from? It was pretty clear he was going to die. I just thought it would be in episode 3.
>>17144393Not that anon, but I also didn't expect him to die. I thought he would go MIA and return later. It was pretty refreshing that they had the guts to kill him.
Better than expected. Let's hope it keeps the quality.
>>17144393I let my guard down when he expressed relief that he didn't die.
>>17144406That will only happen if it ends with the Princess deciding to destroy the empire.
>>17144389Me too, but only because I wasn't really interested in it in the first place. I just watched the first episode not paying much attention only because I had nothing better to do.It has my full attention now though.
>>17144374Princess will become Lelouch and rape them so hard. This should be glorious.
>>17144374>next episode>for this to never happen again let's be friends!You know that's how it's gonna go.
>>17144549It's going to be so disgusting.
>>17144549I doubt it will jump straight to that, they blue side needs to suffer some before any possibility of getting together happens.>Starts out with princess attempting to make peace with them so no one else has to die>They refuse>Is that so?>Proceeds to lead a mission and murders most of the opposing force in the proecess
>>17144389I think it was pretty meaningless all in all. Personally, I think killing off a character is something a writer should only resort to if there's nothing else left to tell with them outside of the consequences of their deaths, otherwise it's just a waste of the audience's time and emotional investment.On that basis, killing off basically the secondary protagonist of the story so far, when we're still on episode two, is kind of a bad sign as to how much creativity we're working with here.
>>17144143At least we get a quality suffering face for reaction image purposes
>>17144767Depends on how heavy of a blow it will be to the princess. I'm expecting her to help out with military strategy. She already displayed good potential in the training they did in episode 1, basically being the one who brought the team victory, and she talks about playing outside of the rules in this one. Assuming her sunshine is entirely gone, she's going to want revenge.
>>17144823Im glad it doesnt have grain then! Or does it?
>>17126988Who designed these pieces of shit?
>>17127436is there a thing like that for 2018? i didnt watch much anime till fall last year
Lack of snowflake mechs is good on this one.I am also surprised by the lack of explosions, the armor could tank quite a few shots.
>EGAO IS OVER
>>17144389The death flags were raised episode one. It was only a question of how long. >>17144767There's nothing automatically wrong or creative with creating a likeable main character and killing him off right away.What really matters is the aftermath of such a death and we've got another week to wait until we see how well they handle that.
if you look at director track record, most of it is filled with suffering. Egao no Daika literally translated is Price of Smiles
>>17145755Neat, he worked on Fafner Heaven and Earth.
I'm kinda glad they acknowledged the existence of infantry, even though they weren't shown doing anything relevant on-screen other than being sappers. Interesting that their armor also have those hover-thingies, though.
>>17145911Makes me hope for some high speed infantry shenanigans.
>>17145253Soleil Kingdom mechanical design: Toshiaki Ihara (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=creator&creatorid=18340)Grandeiger Empire mechnical design: Takayuki Yanase (http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=creator&creatorid=7035)
>>17146069Ihara did the 2nd Gen mechs and their revised versions from Full Metal Panic.Those green guys do look Yanase.
So is this show better then it looks because the design of the princess is fucking terrible.
>SoleilStealth Turn A sequel?
>>17146069>>17146102can we finally admit that yanase is losing his touch, /m/?you know it's true /m/, these things are literally Graze
It was obvious that his immediate health wasn't in any danger the last we saw him as he was fleeing, despite a puncture wound. I wager that his death is a false flag to gain the princess's approval to wage war.
>>17146433>deep puncture wound >five days without proper medical treatmentI doubt foul play was involved.
>>17146540>five days without proper medical treatmentTheir carrier looks large enough to have a couple of operating rooms on board.
>>17146540>five days without proper medical treatmentit's a cartoon you fucking autist
>>17146722>>17146540traumatic gastrointestinal injuries are extremely lethal, gastrointestinal perforation has a 50% mortality rate, even under optimal treatment conditionsit's also what my mom died of!
>two characters who might as well be twinsSomething's not right here...
>>17146870>josh got a sex change to go deep undercover The madlad.
>>17146329The green guys look good because it resembles this. Don't know the source though as it looks like concept art but these contours are rare in mecha design.
>>17146433A possibility indeed. It would be a ploy if he is just in a coma and everyone else planned it.
>>17125706Looks like we may alternate between sides until ep6 when the two meet up.
I like that there's still some scheming and deception going on. Girard was found out as a traitor, but officially, he would still have his position, or he wouldn't have able to surrender the city after the seige. Maybe we'll find out in the next episode what's going on with that. I do wonder if anyone will tell Yuki that he wanted to surrender before Joshua died, at the cost of the new machines (all 3 of which Soleil still have, as the twins are alive and we were shown Joshua's damaged one).Now, tinfoil hat here, but the sunflowers don't grow well, even though the wild sunflower is actually a weed that is very invasive. Now, the weird energy source is probably culprit number one, but what if it has the same effect on people? What if Joshua died not just because of his injury, but because the contmination from the energy source meant he couldn't heal as well, in the way that it prevents plants from growing properly?Also,>kingdom of Soleil>soleil means sun>sunflowers don't growDEEP
>>17146870Looks like bottom right girl is dead too, a shame
>>17144511Her tactics in the previous episode did display a reckless disregard for the local infrastructure. I'm guessing either a Sherman's March type invasion or a defensive Pyrrhic Victory.
>>17143849Could have turned septic if an intestine got pierced.
>>17147443My thoughts at the time when watching that were that she wouldn't be able to do that in a real battle, at least not without becoming the villain. I wonder if her struggle will be how to think of a way that doesn't involve that or if she'll just wreck the lives of her own people.The price of the smiles of everyone else in the kingdom is the smile of everyone on the frontline and those who care for them after all. The princess has learnt that much.Though Joshua was smiling, so maybe the lesson will be how to smile in the face of death.
>>17147706I'm not expecting something like that from a show like this.
>>17143905holy shit neck yourself or get out of the third world dumpster you live in and get half decent internet
>>17144429Same, I actually thought he was gonna make it. They fucking tricked me
How many war crimes will the princess commit?
>>17147951until the price of Egao is fulfilled
>>17146903>inb4 his death was faked to start war and he ends up on the empire’s side when hime starts committing war crimes
>>17126988Can be described by the one phrase I actually said when I first saw them : why the fuck are they hollow ? On the limbs, that is. Seriously, shouldn't the muscles/actuators be there ? But hey, I wouldn't be surprised if mechs in this universe were just moved by bullshittium, good intentions and POWER OF LOVE/FRIENDSHIP.
Why the fuck they have killed MC?
>>17124791Damn can't believe it only took one episode.I'm ready for princess to go psycho until Stella lezzes her back to the light side.
I thought that the show will be about Joshua coming around and love triangling the enemy girl and the princess, while tsundere-twin would bully him for the rest of the series.
>>17146870>>17146903Either way she's cute. Also the empire suits are better.
>>17146132Wrong, princess is best girl on the making this season.
Repostan from /a/, doubt anyone gives a shit.>What kind of character Yuuki is, Hanamori-san?>>She has lost her parents in the past and was raised into a sheltered girl being pampered by everyone. She interacts with people directly and is a girl bright like the sun. However that 12 year old empress will have to strengthen her resolve from now on and change gradually in the process. From having only the front side she will gradually develop the depth and the back side.>Yuuki's development seems to be a major point of the story.>>I'm also interested to see what changes she will undergo after seeing the world she didn't see before.>How did you prepare for your role?>>I was asked to emphasize Yuuki childishness in ep1, so I played trying to be 100% pure. However they didn't tell me anything about what happens in later episodes except for my role so I have no idea about the future developments and the back stories of the characters. That's why I'm playing with what I know and feel at the time.>Please tell us about Joshua and Harold.>>Joshua is a childhood friend and The hot blooded character (laughs). Passion and will is his motto that encouraged Yuuki many times. I thought it's cute how their relationship changes in a bittersweet way (laughs). Yuuki was spoiled by Layla a lot but after turning 12 that will change. Harold is a knight and he's very cool when he fights but he has a different justice than Yuuki. Layla and Harold will become the obstacles for Yuuki to overcome.
>>17149849>What can you tell us about the name of the show "Price of the smiles"?>>Yeah...you can't talk your way out of it (laughs). Just like the title says, I think it's a work that makes you rethink the weight of the smile in general and not just Yuuki's. I think the title will make more and more sense the more the story progresses. Little by little black and other colors will be added to Yuuki's pure white and will add the depth to her smile. I think it's also worth paying attention to the sunflowers that were also shown in the key visual. I'll be working very hard every episode so I hope you'll enjoy it!
>>17149852seems like director is putting his effort, cool
Bigger emphasis on the really crappy Mecha Fights, Massively rushed through Character Story in AN episode. Yeah, No. I'm out.
>>17149636wait isn't that the bitch from shirobako?
>>17149849>From having only the front side she will gradually develop the depth and the back side.Yes, I'm definitely eager to see how her back side develops.
> Actually having an explanation for why nobody has an air forceWell that was unexpected.
>>17127493> IsekandarIs it populated by blue people?
They better give the princess a mech with custom color. Loli pilot is rare af.
When will the princess get into the robot?
>>17151854>>17151877She's going to be a field commander inside a carrier.
>>17151914So Kongming is back in command?
So will this actually become Egao no DAKKA in the end ? I mean, seems /m/ went from IT'S SHIIIIIIIIT to "eh, it's cool" from one episode to another just because Generic Mc.Genericface died so this better be actually good.
>>17152187Depends on how episode 3 goes.
>>17152187>Generic Mc.GenericfaceFuck you, Joshua was a bro
>>17152224He was a super robot pilot stuck in a real robot series, he was doomed from the start.
>>17144136>Anime has conditioned you to think otherwise but that's the reality.Its true. Anime will bait a switch you. I swear it would happen more often in older series from the 70s or 80s. A character gets injured slightly says something like, "a stratch like this won't kill me, etc." You don't see it that often anymore but goddamn did this series use it effectively with this last episode. It got me good. I was predicting everything that was happening in the episode and have fun with it and bam! that happens. Its not fair.
>>17151877If this series is good, maybe by episode 6 or 7 if its not then probably never.
>>17152224Nah, he's a generic ln protagonist.
>>17152224Wrong. He is genericface kiritio.
>>17153980Well, at least he's got something that no other Generic Mc.Genericface protagonist has, and that's the fact that he's dead this early in his own anime. Unless you count Isekai protags who die in the very first episode.
>>17155230What are the odds it's faked?
>>17155238Seems unlikely, the show is probably going to focus on the things/people Yuki and Stella have lost and how they represent the two sides of the conflict.
>>17155238I think there's a chance that'll happen because they need a couple to market. I had even typed (Presumably) dead on that post but decided against it.>>17155248You make it sound like there'll actually be nuance and depth to this show.
>>17155260The show is called "The Price of Smiles" and they aren't shying away from death. Also, the ones who get to run in a sunflower field in the promotional art are Yuki and Stella, not Yuki and Joshua.
>>17146329I think it's less he's losing his touch, and more that his style doesn't translate to 3DCGI very well.
>>17146314>nothing to nico nico nii about
>>17155989No, he's losing it.
>>17155261>Still believing promotional art of original series after it was aired.Just the previous season we got got Zombieland Saga that was promoted as zombie survival horor that only turn out to be a gag-comedy idol show.
>>17158500Well this one seems more likely.
This shit is great
>>17160793Nah, it's just shit.
>>17162081What hurt you?
Episode 3 of my emperor loli is out.
>>17163389She's so good. This season has so many good PTSDed spec ops cuties holy shit.
So, what is the price of this smile?
>morally grey war drama, both sides have a point and aren't just muahaha evil>normal soldier protagonists who are decent people but aren't moralfags or afraid to get their hands dirty>fights are grunts using tactics and teamwork, no super prototypes in sightIsn't this the kind of show you always said you really wanted to see /m/? Yet it's so unpopular we're still on the first thread after ep 3 aired.Make up your mind people.
>>17163456I really like that.And the Red Shoulder unit is really showing some operator moves since EP2.
>>17163456Wow, it's as if /m/ would rather come up with excuses to avoid watching mecha anime than acknowledge that the genre is nowhere near as dead as they think it to be!
>>17163456/m/ is just tsundere for black-and-white conflicts with superhuman protagonists and overpowered mechs.
>>17163456/m/ has a hard-on for super mechas and Joshua dying was probably genuinely a dropping point for most, even if it made sense.
>>17163471I'm liking it fine, my main complaints are from the stock music and cast, but if there are more fight scenes that'll help improve it.
>>17163456/m/ has garbage taste. This is nothing new.
Now that we know the basics of the war, will /m/ support Soliel or Grandica?
>>17163537I would fight and conquer lebensraum for cute commander.
slow anime like this would be better as a binge watch
>>17163456Dropping this show until Joshua comes back from the dead.
>>17163456How is it morally grey? The Kingdom have done nothing bad so far nor has it even been hinted at.
>>17163635The citizens in episode one looked brainwashed. Was it a hint about the kingdom's true nature or just an unintentional animation failure? We'll see.
>>17163641I think something like that is a bit too high concept for a show like this.
not 0080, the chapter
>>17163456Sure but>isn't Gundam>cgMeans people ignore it anyways
>>17163635Soleil is a feudal society, with nobles and chivalric orders on top while the commoners are second grade citizens. Also they hogged all the good land and resources for themselves which, fair enough, I don't expect them to just give those away for free - but you really can't blame the empire for invading, because it was either that or starvation.
>>17163720The people of Soleil turned out in the thousands to wave glowsticks and party over a fifteen second speech by their princess. We have no idea how political power is distributed as monarchies can have many different shapes and forms and none of them are inherently wrong. Maybe the empire should have spent more time developing its own economy and feeding its own people rather than dedicating its resources on the military so that they can steal shit from their neighbours.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1RN5atp4bIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujF14KMGct0I think the insert songs are in here unless the madmen are giving us a new opening/ending in a few episodes time.star cruiser hymnstar seeker [don't worry, it's just the end of this earth VER.]Something about that last one...The Kingdom are screwed, it looks like. Joshua's sacrifice delayed the fall of Grad by 5 days at best, and their escape with the new machines only delayed the Empire from getting their hands on the reactor by a month. Is that really enough?At this rate, the explosion in the OP will be a dead-hand switch inside the capital, not a flashback.
>>17163730Dark show indeed.
>>17163775As long as Layla makes it out alive safe, I will be happy.
>>17163720>Soleil is a feudal society, with nobles and chivalric orders on top while the commoners are second grade citizens.Is this supposed to be a bad thing? The kingdom is lavish and so far from what's been shown it's standard of living is high. To the point where empire soldiers get butthurt about it. I'd rather be a "second grade citizen" with all my wants achieved than some starving 'nother cog in the machine Imperial citizen living in a fucking military dictatorship.
The left one doesn't actually look bad at all, aside from having stupidly tiny feet. Just slap on some big boy grunt boots and it'd be pretty fine.
Has anyone noticed that the quality of this show has actually improved the further we get in? It seems like they’re were saving their budget on stupid shit like Yuuki’s 12th birthday party. This episode was the best yet, I love going into shows with zero expectations and being surprised. I hope it stays like this
>>17163970Yeah the tiny feet are really getting to me.
>>17164009It's pretty good. One of the shows I look forward to the most.
>>17163896The kingdom has a high standard of living not because it's a kingdom but because it sits on all the rich lands that actually produce crops. The first ep establishes that it originally had a royalty only out of necessity, and now they could get rid of it but won't because it's easier for the upper echelon to stay in power if they have a feudal society.Likewise, the empire didn't become poor because it's a dictatorship, it was already poor and became a dictatorship because of that.
>>17163970FDA vs Galactic Empire from LOGH, with the green guys in this show as the FDA equivalent?
Empire must reclaim their clay.
>>17164240Not really. Both are a dictatorship in this case, and one is clearly the aggressor.
>>17164244That isn't their clay at all.
>>17164240It's more black and white than LOGH.
>>17164279Only because the reasons for the war arent spelled out for the brainlets by infodumping or a narrator.This show makes it so that you only get biased information from both sides.
>>17164285Hey I don't see the Kingdom producing people like the Blue cunt yet.
>>17164287You have literally only seen their nobles and high ranked guys. On the imperial side, you have seen literally the proles and the grunts.
so these guys aren't just pilots, they're special ops and can do infiltration missions. cool.those Kingdom guards though...Jesus fucking Christ could they be any more useless? One dude gets shot in the face, and his partner just stands there going uhhh oh no we're under attack! let me just sit here in the open and not fire my weapon or duck for cover and let them shoot me while I try to radio in the attack. Not only do they have piss poor security in terms of cameras and alarms and access control which are all easily hacked by these guys using some gadget, they are lacking in man power, there's no tactical response team with heavy armor and long guns, nope, just a few dudes wearing fancy clothes that can't even get a shot off because they are running towards the infiltrators with their guns pointed at the ground. lmao
>>17163537well, /m/ >supports Zeon>supports ZAFT both under Zala and Durandal>supports Treize/Oz>supports Neo Zeonin other words, /m/ is fucking retarded and has a giant hard on for "morally grey" factions with national socialist undertones.Do you really need to ask who em supports? perfect example right here: >>17163540
>>17164478There was some nice theory in the /a/ thread about the early history of the planet and how the colonists formed different countries based on their share of terraformed soil etc.So, yes. If it plays out like this, the story should be quite grey.
>>17164244That's like saying a british colony in new world declare independence and naming themselves as New Kingdom of England, and then start to invade the old England and its commonwealth, claiming that those countries are their rightful land.
>>17163540Why British caps?
>>17163776She looks like a traitor.
What do you guys think?
>>17163456I discuss anime on /a/, /m/ is for design, gunpla and let play thread.
>blowing up a farm because they're so jelly>the absolute state of the empire
>>17123137This show iwll be wrose than pic related
>>17163456>main characters are moeblobs womenThat's a nope from me
>>17123108Hell, this isn't even the usual /m/ trolling of taking tweens and claiming it represents the whole show. These are quite clearly key frames.
I love how he just stands there expressionless when his subordinate points a gun at a kid. Would it have killed them to at least move his eyes or something? After she fires the warning shot he's just staring at her.Or was it just a case that a commander must trust his subordinates?
>>17165495so when is it okay to critique animation?
>>17163604If they bring him back I’ll be pissed. That’s the one thing they did right.
>>17165329It's basic tactics, anon. You want to cut off your enemy's supply chain, drain them of resources whenever possible.
>>17165837When everything else is just as bad.
This show is amazing
>>17165837When you don't have to go frame by frame to find a bad looking image.
>>17123043>Egao no DaikaUntil now the show says that smiles aren't worth and shouldn't be valued high as some dead retards thought, protecting smiles may not only cost lives but the country existence itself.
