Episode 5 soon!
is the chapter still not out yet?
>>241030201Not yet. Get off your ass, translator-fag. I know you lurk here.
>>241030280I'm visiting my girlfriend. TL in two days if nobody else has done it yet.
>>241029862>making the thread 8 hours earlyThread Possession Syndrome
i hate patrick
i hate ricky
I'm rooting for Patrick and Ricky.
I want barbie to look at me with disgust!barbara is okay too
Live long and prosper
K-Keito-sama... do you not wear any....
So, think they're going to do the Robe-sama meeting during the reunion, or will they really try to just bluster through to the climax without anyone actually having talked with it? I could see it being the episode's cliffhanger, since they seem to like those so much they turned fucking Olly into one.
Keito legs need even more screentime.
>>241034048I want Barbie to bust my balls!
>>241035661>spoilers>meeting her during the reunionI hadn't thought of that for some reason, but it makes sense.
What does /a/ think of season 2 of the anime so far? Still utter shit?
>>241039149No. I've never thought it's utter shit
>>241039149I've got the overall feeling that is worse than the first season, but maybe that's because I'm not an animeonly anymore. The OP and ED were the biggest disappointments for me, though.
>>241039476It is overall worse, not just because of the little plot changes scattered everywhere to get things back on track, but the storyboarding, animation and overall direction feel weaker too.
>watch english dub for lols>dialogue is entirely rewritten and unfitting>young maryrose and barbara sound like 40 year old womenWho does this shit? John sounds 10x as retarded too
>>241039721Clovercucks probably put all their money and time into SpyxFamily knowing how much of a success it'll be, especially since they already released a trailer for season 2. Shadows House just got shafted
>>241039149I've been enjoying it
>>241038269I want to reach a higher rank that her just so I can mildly annoy her and call her cute while she can't do anything about it.
>>241041210Rosemary has been soiled...
Is the new OP actually creepy or is it just me? Going by the lyrics it almost seems like the flower field is akin to a doll's mental state after drinking the coffee. They even say not to worry about unnecessary things and 'let's become one' or some shit.
Bump until the episode
I was going to start this series then found out the first season goes all anime original end. Is it better to read the manga or is the anime still ok?
>>241043682In s2 they pretend anime original bit never happened.
>>241043682I personally recommend reading the manga first. That's what I did. The anime isn't terrible, but the liberties they took with the first season does mess with the narrative and feeling a lot.
Science gang was fun.
>>241043682Watch to ep11 (or 10?) and then start s2
>>241045722>You will never be leglocked by Emilyko
>>241044328I get it. Friendship is magic.
Yeah, about that...
>>241045722I will never forgive them.
>>241047292I want her to juggle my balls like that if you know what I mean
>>241046874>>241046918Living doll? More like living onahole
Hmm so at the current pace we can do the Robe reveal by episode 7/8 and finish the fight in the next. Spend another on the denouement and then end the season with that spread that looks like it was made for S2 to exist.
>>241043973???? they literally referenced it this episode
>>241041210Me on the left
reminder that Kate is my boyfriend
>>241040300Ah, this one is my favorite idea yet.
This shadow is exposing a lot of midsection and has a nice pair.
>making sculptures out of what is essentially like dead skin to the shadowsKinda gross
>>241053134Maʼ dick likes it.
So I guess the rest of the season will be something like6: 62 + 20, adding the Robe encounter to the Night Sky stuff7: 63-64, John collects information8: 65-66, the "regarding" chapters9: 67-69, unmasking Robe-sama10: 70-73, first half of the fight, animeonlies who've been treating unification as not such a big deal get to see how fucked everything is11: 74-77, end of fight and the remaining flashbacks12: 78-80, Maryrose and Rosemary fall out of the story for the next hundred chapters, Anthony does the same by diving down Emilyko's toilet, all of the 50+ children have been brought here to die, Shadows House is a mistake, end
Emilico is really good at handling balls.
>>241053269Thatʼs why sheʼs popular
>>241034634Why is Kate so erotic?
>>241053646Because she was made in the image of sex itself, Emilico.
>>241053828>hasn't read the manga
>>241054534Kate didn't copy anyone; she was born from the original noble family that owned what is now known as Shadows House, and she tricked her way in before the start of the series. Kate was born from a woman who was assaulted by a wild morph and turned black before giving birth. Kate spent her childhood as a human, but turned black and left home to reclaim her birthright. Emily didn't have a proper name in the first place before Kate named her, as she was an orphan.
>>241047325But it doesn't erase brainwashing
>>241056706Ultra Instinct Emilyko when
Is it just me or is S2 slower than S1? Idk I feel bored watching the episodes
>Patrick says it's cool isn't it? in Japanese>subs say it's stylish isn't it? in EnglishHuh.
>>241058009i watch them in 1.25 speed
>>241058471>かっこい 格好いい>Common word>I-Adjective (keiyoushi) - yoi/ii class>1. attractive; good-looking; stylish; cool; smooth; neat; with-it; groovy
>>241058471Just depends on context, though I don't think I'd ever describe that skull as stylish.
What do shadow boobs feel like?
>>241058996Sandy I guess
>>241039476The OP is the best part about it.
The talk about sweat and smells this episode made me wonder how exactly shadows' bodies work. If they sweat that means they have things as tiny as sweatglands, even thought they're body is made of soot? Do they have cells too?
>>241059763>even thought they're body is made of sootIt is not, their body is very similar to humans except they emit soot and get covered in soot.
>>241058009Yeah, I think ever since the reveals in S1, there's not as much intriguing mystery left. Finding out about some random dude in a robe is not as exciting as the overall mystery of the first season.
>>241058471I'm guessing the translator didn't think the word 'cool' fit into the setting of the show.
>>241061009Made from Kate's essence... it's almost like you're putting it inside her...
Sniffing Emilico's hair
>>241061887>they even make the doll's eat shitty breadI understand what they're doing, but fuck them.
>>241059763>>241059961What about the poop?
>>241062014they have human bodies and they are covered with a thin film of soot
I want to see a Shadows House musical.
>>241059961then what are they made of?
>>241062649it was literally in season 1 anon
>>241062649Water, 35 liters; carbon, 20 kilograms; ammonia, 4 liters; lime, 1.5 kilograms; phosphorus, 800 grams; salt, 250 grams; saltpeter, 100 grams; sulfur, 80 grams; fluorine, 7.5; iron, 5; silicon, 3 grams; and trace amounts of 15 other elements.
Shadows' House: Noir
Did they ever explain what's the deal with that doll who likes to get beaten?
>>241062797What's with her?
>>241062751i knew they aren't humanbut then what are they?
>>241060845I think I'm just waiting for Maryrose to steal the show. Which is why I'm probably also finding it boring
>>241063279but they're not 2-dimensional projections
>>241054534I came here to ask someone to post this.Good job.
>>241058996Like bags of soot.
>>241061759Why do you think Anthony was raving about her soot? It feels like the real thing.
>>241030970c'mon anon, hurry up, I need an excuse to not do my anki reps.
>>241034634Keito is the bestThat circus monkey is shit
>>241065767Cope, Emilico mogs Keito into oblivion.
i've been refraining from reading the manga because i want to feel the experience from the anime first, but im enjoying the show so far despite its flaws or inconsistencies.I'm 99% sure Christopher/Anthony is the robed guy, lots of hints point to that way, but im also rather curious about Olly. He seemed to be awfully cooperative in this episode slipping a lot of "secrets". I wonder if he's doing it on purpose and is in the cahoots with Christopher.Kate-sama the best.
>>241059920Well, we're sure about Kate at least since she's an hybrid. The rest we don't know.
>>241029862Do you think a shadow has ever fucked his own living doll?
>>241039149I like it so far, it's a good refreshing for my favorite scenes of the manga.
>>241067651it's implied yes, shadows eventually will crawl up the inside of their 'living doll' anyway
Where can I get my own doll?
>>241067651MaryroseSara, but it wasn't consensualLouise is gonna do it sooner or later
>>241066865I like to imagine Kate doing Emilyko's silly faces.
>双子みたいな女の子二人ぐらいじゃ開けられないじゃないかなーって>Unless there were two girls working together, like the twins, it would be difficult to open.sasuga funimation
>>241067970How would you translate it?
>>241068586I think that even those twins together wouldn't be enough to open it.
>>241067713At your local circus
The OP full version has English captions now. Please appreciate ReoNa bringing the lyrical imagery from marionettes to circus performers for a moment. She worked very hard on this.
>>241069710The music video is neat too with ReoNa being dressed in red and everyone else in black.
Nice bags of soot.
>>241058009I enjoyed reading this arc in the manga, but having the debut be an elaborate action-adventure is hard to outdo. It's simply peak.
>>241030970Fuck off and don't come back you unvirgin.
>>241061887Watch out behind you, Emilyko!(creepy smile thing)
>>241073317Grandfather needs to get his soot wet
>>241067615We can know, as we saw how they fused shadow and doll already, shadows are that, soot.
>>241029862Why does subs this season insist on “Emilico” instead of “Emilyko” when both the first season and the manga already stated it’s a twist on the name Emily. Are they inferring it’s Emilie? But then the kana is missing one ー anyway. I know it ultimately doesn’t matter but it’s still annoying.
>>241070782Olly is lucky
>>241074934The subs in the first season used Emilico too.
>>241074934people hate admitting they were wrong
>>241074934Emilico is arguably closer to a real name. A masculine Latin name, but, details.
>>241075260>Emilyko>Emily-koIns´t the sufix "ko" added to mean something small?
>>241075664usually you wouldn't put a japanese diminutive on an english name but yeah
>>241061951Now that you mentioned it, isn't this weird? Since the shadows plan to assimilate their living dolls, wouldn't they want to feed them the good stuff?
>>241075664I meant that it's closer to a real name to the English-speaking audience. I prefer Emilyko, but it probably would seem more strange to a lot of viewers.
>>241075795read the manga
The relationship between Patrick, Kate, Louise and Jhon feels more natural now, I like it.
>>241070017>hear that Kate-sama?>he's another lolicon>oh boy
>>241074692They may be able to turn into Soot but keep in mind the faeries don't seem to make the world dirty. So it seems their bodies aren't soot just an all.black magical substance
>>241068586>Wouldn't it be impossible for two girls like the twins to open?So the complete opposite. It's very basic and ordinary Japanese grammar. I can only assume the retarded translator mistook the Japanese wouldn't for a double negative.
Barbara BarbieMaryrose RosemaryLouise LouPatrick RickySuzanna SusieBenjamin BenOliver OllieDoug DouglasKate EmilykoWtf, should've named her Keith or something
>>241079504The point Kate wanted to make was that Emilyko was her own person
>>241079504The author explained on twitter a few weeks ago the rules they used for naming the dolls. When they have similar names it's because they either didn't think much about it (majority of them) or have a huge ego. The cases where the names are different happen because people don't usually name their toy dolls after them.Kate isn't the only example, since there's also Sara and Mia, Christopher and Anthony, and a few background ones
>>241058996>>241070782Boobs? All I see is a cute meganekko.>>241066987Oliver is just like that.>>241067651Would you fuck your own shadow?
>>241079995>All I see is a cute meganekko.I see 2 of those.
>>241079956Yeah, like Kevin and Victor.
>>241079956So Kate sees Emilyko as a doll and is somehow more dehumanizing of her than the likes of L*uise?
>>241080984Kate is a special case that doesn't follow the rules.
>>241054802Then why do they look exactly the same
>>241083336>exactly the same
>>241083884Keito has a cute pointy nose
>>241080984More like Kate sees Emilyko as her own person rather than a doll.
Keito's long snout.
>>241085258I can't believe that Kate is freaking black!
>>241085972*smacks lips profusely* ayo emilico hol' up
>>241074934Emilico looks cuter.
Kate is ugly
>>241087184keito-sama is hotter than the sun
>>241087184Say that to my doll, fucker, and see what happens.
>>241087184That depiction is. She looks like a fucking chink
I refuse to believe Kate is blond under all that blackness
How did she acquire pointy teeth?
>>241089542Don't worry, she's not
>>241085175Poor Emilico. She's so close to living out her SM fetish, getting to be the property of a loving dom, getting to do constant housework and chores for her, submitting nonstop all day, being seen as nothing more than an extension of her beloved mistress.And Kate is just like "naaaaaah, you're your own person. We're equals and shit,"
>>241085258All modern anime girls have snouts.
>>241090308High detail cat heads look better than rhino faces desuwa
>>241089699If you don't want to wait and find out thenHer teeth are broken. They got smashed from a soot-explosion caused by Barbara.
>>241066987>Christopher/Anthony is the robed guyYeah, the anime pushes this notion.
>>241090308Depends on the artstyle.
>>241089542Keiro's pitchblack bush...

Tricking Emilico into having sex!
>>241089542didn't they actually show Kate's actual hair color in the flashback? Did you people forget or something
>>241094559Yes, they did.
>>241094646kate was so much cuter before she turned into a nigger
>>241094942why do you think she's working so hard to end the curse
>>241074980Not Cleo though.
>>241058996Like paizuri with sandpaper.
If Kate wins and takes down Lord grandpa that pretty much means all shadows die. She's effectively pushing for shadow genocide
>>241095739Morphs existed before Grandpa though.
>>241095739>She's effectively pushing for shadow genocideGood, sh*dows need to go.
>>241096010But emilyko is a shadow
>>241096263Looks human to me.
If shadows died all dolls would commit sudoku. They're bred slaves, unfit for freedom. They wouldn't know what to do with it.
>>241094646Have a feeling Emilyko is a mirror orphan She's related to Kate
>>241096263if it's revealed emilyko was a shadow all along, it would be the biggest asspull I've ever read
>>241096325twin bun Emilyko is sinfully and criminally cute, no little girl should wield such power
>>241094646why do i feel i'm missing somethingare shadows ex-humans?sounds weird, since they supposed to begin life as shadowlets
>>241097331read the manga
When will John fill Kate Black pussy with his fat soot?
>>241091976You actually put some thought into this (and it worked).Now I seriously can't stop imagining John and Shaun tap dancing.
>>241029862>soonIt aired yesterday, dipshit.
>>241098210You should have looked at the thread's date before making that stupid post.
>>241096787It says Gilbert.
>>241095739Kate is extremely racist and is desperate to get back to being a white girl, this shouldn't be surprising.
>>241098735John's megacock will fix her, don't worry.
>>241098735I can't believe they're already engaged at such a young age.Abe is going too far
>>241096536Catherine was in a coma for 50 years before Kate was born, so Emilyko could in theory be the great-granddaughter of some other Mirror who managed to escape, but she definitely wasn't orphaned from the same attack.
>>241103066Although now I say that, Kate only started to change after her twelveth birthday, and Emilyko was "probably eleven" when she met everyone after the circus, so... that would be some fucking twist if Emilyko was also a fused-from-birth Shadow and started turning while they're still in the House.
>>241079995>Oliver is just like that.Oliver is going to get in a lot of trouble if he keeps spilling Star Bearer's secrets just like that then.>>241090615it really is, but im also wary if i'm being led on by how blatant it is. If there's something the series likes to do is to give you the impression something is going to happen to then bamboozle you with a different thing, like Ollie and Emilico at the end of EP 4, it seemed like he was going to kidnap emilico or something, but EP5 showed they were just happy to see her again
>>241103331Its generally a rule in mysteries that the person they point out to you saying they are the culprit isn't the culprit. The other version being that they are, but they're an accomplice.
>>241102157Kate and John are engaged?
>>241103423Yeah, i think so too. But since this is an adaptation of a manga and i haven't read the manga, anime staff could had taken some liberties to make the story be easier to understand to viewers and point out/make obvious a few things. I'm looking forward the next episode, it's really hard to come to these threads and avoid all the spoilers.
kate should marry emily
>>241103614Just avoid all the black and you should be fine. But to keep your noggin joggin, have you noticed that there's one character/s that they haven't named as a suspect?
>>241103827Fuckin hell, now i'll have to rewatch the last 3 episodes.
>>241104182Once you do I'll assume she'll jump to the top of your suspect list.
>>241095739The only thing that the Shadows House has done for shadows was unification which for all we know is an unnatural phenomenon done by morphs. Kate wouldn't be killing shadows
>>241096536>mirror orphanWould Kate have to fuck her to reestablish their bloodline? She's part morph, who knows what her body can do.
>>241029862Are there any rape correction doujins with emilyko?
>>241104676For all we know, all or most morphs that never found a proper host would have eventually poofed like Shirley was assumed to. We don't know the "normal" life cycle of morphs. The one that turned into a rat was considered wasted. We don't know if the shadows in the children's wing have a biological time limit to merge or if they can go on as they are forever. We don't know much of anything.
Am I the only one who feels bad for the Belle twins? They're bitches but they don't deserve this, especially for something they obviously didn't do. Plus, they're really cute when they're begging and flailing their feet while being carried around.>>241103827>>241104231Thanks I had suspicions before but now I know for sure, especially when you said she. It was weird how she wasn't named a suspect when Rosemary was literally the one who brought all the scorches.
>>241105806Don't worry anon, the twins will be doing much better soon.
Anime-only secondary here, I've been reading this thread and this has got be curious.Just what's the big deal about unification anyway and what this guy on >>241053206 says?
>>241034634>underwear full of soot marksShadows can't handle the shame. They would rather go nopan.
>>241105806Also, I can't remember who said it, but there was a comment made that the dolls aren't usually too far away from their masters
>>241105932I appreciate it, but someone didn't use proper spoiler tags last week.
>>241106030It smells really bad.
>>241090482I thought the flashback one was a different barbie.
>>241053206seems ideal for the pacing.>>241050972aside from a minor reference and having to create a new scene for Robe it's been completely back on track as if it never happened.
I'm surprised we haven't seen Kate have another mental breakdown after learning the full truth. Based on her DIRTY IT DIRTY IT DIRTY IT DIRTY IT DIRTY IT episode, she has a lot of self-revulsion at what she is, and with how moral and conscientious her personality is, I'd have expected to see that come out again in some sort of "I'm not even Kate, I'm just a parasite who killed Kate's mother and then stole her body!" breakdown once she knew what unification really entailed.
>>241089699I like her pointy teeth better
>>241107352she won't breakdown because she has emilyko, if emilyko gets hurt or is taken from her she'll really go crazy
I want to drink unfiltered soot coffee straight from Kate.
Do shadows pee black?
>>241110719Anon, where do you think coffee comes from?
Cumming on Kate-sama's hair.
>>241111264She would react exactly the same as when Emilyko tried to put makeup on her, and then it would quickly mix with soot, and she would be depressed.
>>241110932>everyone is drinking ojisan piss on a regular basisH-huh...
>>241112346Not if Kate can put a stop to it.
>>241101218blonde in lightdark in shadowkino...
>>241112633She's going to drink it all, so they don't have to.
god i wish i was ojisama
Emilico's bald cunny.
>>241039149I forgot it was even airing.
>>241097331Normal shadows are just a mass of "dark mater", wich takes form of a human who becames its doll. After that, they become something like a second skin for the dolls, onions they are "one entity".Kate is different, since she was born from a human and a shadow.
>>241115354>Onionswhy its "S+O" banned?
>>241115383lurk 10,000 more years
>>241115354i wonder who the father is
>>241115525I know about S o y being banned, retard, but why the other?
>>241115572Probably grandpa, since I doubt he could get out of the castle anyone but himself. Maybe he "hired" some girls to have some fun, and one of them got pregnant, who knows
>>241090482soot explosiondidn't Barbie just beat the shit out of her one day? Am I fucking crazy?
>>241115665You think Barbara beat the shit out of Barbie? Why would she do that?
>>241115782Barbara beat the shit out of Barbie
>>241115807If that's more your style, I won't judge.
>>241115996?Anyway I love Maryrose and she is always the one who gets screwed by the authors. She doesn't deserve this.
>>241116581No, no you can't claim her she's mine. You already claimed Barbie/Barbara
>>241116581She becomes pretty important later in the manga though.
>>241116644No I didnt, I like the pre-punished Barbie and my waifu's seiyuu voices her. But nope, it's Maryrose for me. She has the same hairflip as Iori and is a brunette, and a very nice girl.
>>241115585>I'm the retarded onekek, okay bud
>>241116706You can't have her cause you can't even get her name right
>>241116900I've been drinking and I already have a waifu anyway. her va is in the show. She's Bartholomew.
>>241116936Please don't drink and post ever again
>>241117007But that's all my posts.
>>241091256What does it smell like?
ED is growing on me. Which is weird because I have not ever liked a nuClariS song
>>241117175Stop reminding me about how much better the old ED was.
>>241115607maybe he's the bastard child of another such affairwould be kinda interesting
>>241117175Man both the first season's OP and ED were waaaaaaaaay better than S2's. Not only music wise, but animation wise too.
Started reading manga. Reached Robe appearance. Now I get why people were so mad
>>241115354>Normal shadows are just a mass of "dark mater"Not true. Shadows and morphs rot when they die and are crunchy, implying they have bones.
>>241103716They're normal though.
