Is it true that Akiba Maid War flopped in Japan? If so, why would it happen when yakuza stuff is big there?
>>248123095Maids did nothing wrong.I was just following the orders.
>>248123095kill yourself subhuman shounenspic
I miss Ranko
>>248124202Same, she was precious
Would you oinky doink Ranko's manko?
Maybe they didn't get the joke
except she jobbed when she was dressed like this
>>248123095Are Yakuza flicks even big in Japan anymore?
>>248123095I don't think it FLOPPED, per se. Isn't it getting a theatrical play or something? kinda flopped in the west, tho.
>>248124837of course it doesn't help that faggots like this spoil the plot nonstop.
>>248125390At least no one mentioned that Nagomi killed her.
>>248125390>caring about spoilers for a non-airing show
>>248125540It's airing right now you turbofaggotand people were spoiling it IN THE FUCKING OP while it was airing, too. And also all over Youtube of course.
>>248125540>Not being a dub watcher.Oh wait, nevermind that's a good thing, fuck dubs.
>>248123095Nobody wants to watch cute girls dying.
>>248125640I kinda do.
>>248125557>caring about spoilersYour fault for going to the internet before watching the episode.
>>248125939The ninja part was plot-armor.There was no way she could beat Manami.
>>248126169She beat her with the power of justice. Also wouldn't that have also made all the times Ranko was competent plot armor too considering she was worthless in episodes 5 and 7 and was easily killed later in the series?
>>248123095Ranko deserved all the suffering she experienced.And ultimately got what was coming to her.I liked Ranko, but you definitely deserved everything that happened to her.Missed out on Love and ultimately lost her Life. penance for all the blood on her hands.That being said, I'll miss her.
>>248126325>That being said, I'll miss her.Wuv Wuv Moonbeam Maid didn't...
The quality of these threads is sharply decreasing
>>248126789Yeah, they were going pretty well for a while there, but the most recent ones are pretty shit
>>248126789There's not much left to talk about that hasn't been done to death. Pretty much just the shit dub and tired memes.Did anyone rip he audio drama yet? If that got translated that would be some new content at least.
Never have I felt so much like I understood a character's perspective and struggleI feel like she is literally me frIs this bad?
>>248127381Would you have gone back for Nagomi when you thought she was going to die?
Is manager based on that bitch?
>>248123095nagomi was shit and ruined the series
>>248127095Was there even one with the first BD?
>>248127985In answering my own question, yes there is. I looked through the BD files I have and what do you know it's there.>>248127095The answer is yes I guess, but you would need someone to put it in a form other people can actually get information from since EoPs everywhere.
>>248128078Lots of Zoya in this first one
>>248128195What is her face trying to convey?
>>248123095>posting reddit oc
>>248128456The pleasure of being cummed inside
>>248128471Make some OC for us then
Did Ranko have the biggest bust among the maids?
>>248128702Then shut the fuck up newfag
>>248128699Zoya seems bigger
>>248127881Nagomi was the best and made the entire series.
>>248127381>Is this bad?Yes. YES. How do you live with yourself?
>>248128078I don't know what EoP means, but it could be put in a video file to time the subs. I don't think that part would be too difficult.
>>248129404I don't know what it means.
>>248129307English only peasant. As in, it doesn't matter if nobody can translate/sub it. And putting words on the screen isn't the main problem there, putting the right words is.
>>248129307end of pepengelion
I haven't been in these threads since the final episode week, what do you guys even talk about?
Actually thinking about it, doesn't Zoya's characterization not make a lot of sense or is at least missing something? She becomes jaded and disillusioned because maids aren't just cute girls and they kill people and stuff. It worked out for her with her soldier/training background, but she lamented having to do that. So you would think she would be the most supportive and understanding of Nagomi's ideals and most aligned with them by default, but after they recruit her she basically just falls in line with the normal maid behavior she seemed to not like. If was to think really hard about it, I think she seems less eager to do that sort of thing than Shiipon or Yumechi, but its not by much if at all. Is she just retarded?
>>248130019Confirmation that Nerula really was a space alien/robot>>>/wsg/4928793
>>248130019I mostly talk about how cute Nagomi is.
>>248130039She barely talked to Nagomi. They recorded this in batches, I'm assuming due to COVID and in the interviews they mentioned their VAs didn't even meet each other until they recorded episode 11.I think she had basically fallen in line by the time she got to Tontokoton though. That or she got brain damaged by Ranko in the fight.
>>248130519>She barely talked to Nagomi.Well that's what I'm getting at. The connection should be there, but we don't really see it if it's even covered at all. And if it isn't it's sort of a characterization hole where Zoya sort of doesn't make sense. But that's kind of how the really condensed series works. Zoya and Ranko basically don't interact past episode 3 either even though Ranko 'fixed' her and she theoretically respects Ranko a lot.
>russian characterIs show going to be cancelled?
>>248130661She'll be Ukrainian in the dub.
>>248130019mostly talk about reddit and the dub
>>248130714We get to find out this week. I can't wait for her to be voiced by Zelensky.
>>248130592I mean, she largely stopped being a character after he focus episode, but she also largely moved away from Nagomi's ideals. It's the same thing as Ranko honestly, although even moreso for her since she actually tried to change Akiba and failed.
>>248130747Obviously I was joking, if they actually do something like that I will laugh my ass off. If they actually cared they'd hire the Jenya since she speaks english too.
>>248126230Ranko got soft the further she went from doing hard time.
>>248127381If I told you to poop some ohineri for me, would you do it?
>>248132355Her winning a shoot out with 50 people was fucking plot armor.
>>248130019Ranko's manko and Yumechi's gassy plastic vag.
>>248132440Why is it gassy?
>>248126789Look at cyberpunk's threads. I really loved that place but we're gonna end up like that.
>>248132563I didn't watch that, but what's wrong with those threads?
Manager just hits all the buttons for me. Why is she the perfect woman?
>>248132563>Look at cyberpunk's threadsNever have and not starting now
>>248132423Hard to believe she fired as many shots as she did without reloading. But that's anime for you.
Piglet Ace gives the best handjobs.
>>248125640Wait. The characters actually kill eachother in this show? I figured 'war' wad code for some fluffy competition or romance thing and just never looked into it.
>>248132753She did reload, you see her do it
>>248133034>Wait. The characters actually kill eachother in this show?N-no... it's just highly advanced rubber ketchup bullets, everyone is fine...
>>248126230No that's like the exact opposite of plot armor. Ranko is the overpowered and competent character who suddenly becomes useless or incompetent for the sake of the plot.
>>248133034I know it gets written as Akiba Maid War because it's a pun and even the Japanese writes it that way, but the show's actual written title is アキバ冥途戦争, literally 'Akiba Hell War' as the kanji for hell/darkness/underworld 冥途 is pronounced Meido.
>>248125939Fukken savedThat series was a fun ride
>>248125640Madoka Magica and Danganronpa disagree
>>248133153Plot-induced stupidity is the term.
>>248133147Just like Yakuza's best terrible plot twist.>>248133207Hm, interesting. Cutsey characters doing edgy/gory stuff is something I have always liked visually so I'll check it out.
>>248133153That's semi justified though by the show. I know it's subtle characterization, but she's softening due to Nagomi. Ultimately having a moment where she is entirely off guard.
>>248127381Her and Jahy's landlord seem to be the most complete disaster of an anime character but at the same time the most human if that makes sense. High value women characters.
>>248133034There's no violence or gore in this show.
>>248133153She survived because the plot required her to. Just like Nagomi as a ninja.
>>248133153There is literally no way someone is going to win a gunfight against 50+ other people. It's plot armor, if you don't think it is you have your head so far up your ass you cut off the blood circulation.
>>248133316What is this plot twist that keeps getting referenced?
>>248133034Nobody dies, everyone is fine
>>248133537Someone gets shot and doesn't die, explained away as super advanced fake bullets.
>>248133567Gotcha, thank you. I'm at least hoping that's in the same game and not something they use as a shitty retcon.
>>248133034haha yeah nobody dies its just paintball haha
>>248133524No it isn't. You have no idea what plot armor is.>There is literally no way someone is going to win a gunfight against 50+ other peopleYeah no shit. Good thing this is fiction where people perform superhuman feats on the regular.
>>248125939So this is what actual love does, no wonder the CSM one was left incomplete.
>>248133815You apparently don't know what plot armor is. They had her make it through something fucking ridiculous because the plot required her survival and at no other point in the series is she shown to be anywhere near that competent.It's as ridiculous as Nagomi being able to beat everyone as a ninja, but people give Ranko a pass on it because they like her.
>>248133835This isn't even a good start.
>>248127381Tenchou is the kind of person who'd say fr to fit in with the zooms, indeed
>>248133546How did you manage to make the title font look so bad when the part you cut out is the easiest part to edit by far?
>>248133485>>248134038>She survived because the plot required her toShe survived and killed everyone because she's established as a one-maid army. It's not that the script constantly leads to situations where she should die and then it pulls out bullshit to keep her alive. It's because her character is written to be an absolute monster that can take on hordes of enemies by herself that the script was driven that way to show off what she's capable of doing.>at no other point in the series is she shown to be anywhere near that competentShe's literally the reason the cast survives against ridiculous numbers and odds stacked against their favor multiple times.
>>248127839She's based on this guy
>>248127839get in line
>>248134208She is completely unable to defend against a far smaller group in episode 7 and needs to be bailed out by Nagomi. At no other point in the series is she capable of doing anything even close to the level of what she did in episode 1.The closest is episode 2 where she is able to fight a significantly smaller group with a bunch of people helping her, then she's pretty much useless for the rest of the series.
>>2481346308man is based on me.
>>248133034>The characters actually kill eachother in this show?No, they use rubber bullets. Mannen Ranko never killed anyone
>>248133524>There is literally no way someone is going to win a gunfight against 50+ other people.i can think of a couple ways, like all guns jam, or every other person is blind. Dont say literally when it's not literally.
Why is she smiling?
>>248134638>The closest is episode 2 where she is able to fight a significantly smaller groupWell besides the fact that most of the first group didn't even have guns.>She is completely unable to defend against a far smaller group in episode 7 and needs to be bailed out by NagomiAnd this is plot-induced stupidity. When the episode was airing, there were posts in the threads pointing out that Ranko should have no problem taking out that group with the only tiny caveat that they're being lead by Manami. But of course she doesn't because the plot requires that she doesn't because it's part of Nagomi's character arc to return and save them when reasonably Nagomi wouldn't make any difference.
>>248135246There is no reasonable fucking way is someone going to win that fight.>>248135475There were 50-60 of them and they should have been able to take her easy.You could write it off as plot induced stupidity if she actually demonstrated she was a "One Maid Army" at any other point in the series, but she wasn't.The fight in episode 2 had several other people fighting by her side against a far small smaller group but it was significantly less one sided than the first episode.She is ambushed in episode 5 and is unable to protect Nagomi and they have to get bailed out by Okachimachi and the others.Episode 7 she was pretty close to being worthless, the only reason people said she should have been able to take them was what happened in episode 1 as nothing else indicated she'd be able to do that.Yes, Nagomi was only able to do what she did in episode 7 because the plot required it, but that's literally the same deal as Ranko in episode 1. Realistically Ranko wouldn't have made a difference either since she had as much fighting experience as Nagomi, shot up one cafe then sat in prison for 15 years. They don't train you on marksmanship in prison, so unless Nagomi was right and she was in the military it's just as bullshit. If anything the one week Nagomi trained was probably more than Ranko did before she went to jail.
>>248126169She was wounded
>>248135425She was being sodomized by Ranko
Started watching and finally.. Ranko.. a girl my age
In episode 7 Manami did have an automatic weapon. It's what pinned the pigs down. But Nagomi's smokebombs allowed her to take the weapon away, which took away their primary advantage. Then Manami didn't even get to use her bat. She got hit by Zoya with a chair and somehow not a single pig maid was harmed during the scuffle.
>>248135892Nagomi got punched in her cute face when she stripped the gun away from Manami. Clearly that was harm.In retrospect it's pretty funny that people thought that multiple pigs were going to die that episode and more delusional ones thought Nagomi was going to start killing people.
Don't know about Zoya, Shiipon and Panda.
>>248123095How did this show do on Abema?
>>248134638>She is completely unable to defend against a far smaller group in episode 7They were shown to be more or less elites as far as maids go. Unlike the bunnies they'd take cover and dodge and stuff and could put up with a fight better than the sheep. I don't think it's sold that well, but Manami's personal group are supposed to be more dangerous.
>>248135892>and somehow not a single pig maid was harmed during the scuffle.Ranko got shot in the arm at some point. It seems to not be shown when it happened and it doesn't matter, but it's why she has a bandage on her arm in the following episode.
You better not play the somnium files. Gonna have a heart attack with fight scenes.
>>248136428Still better than any scene zero time dilemma
>>248136445mc gains super reflexes and plot armor the second he sees porn mags.
>>248136501Isn't that normal?
>>248136501Nagomi looked at a bunch of dick pics right before she jacked up Manami's crew.
Which 5channel board should I go to to see salesfaggotry?アニメ is just discussion and livewatches, and I only ever really go to /livejupiter/ otherwise
>>248136585What sales faggotry do you want to know? BDs sold 1 FRT roughly, but that's not really the major metric. And it also doesn't matter if this did well or not because it was never intended as a franchise.
I've always heard that BD sales are irrelevant in streaming era, but how much viewers does a show require to not be flop. like any yen conversion per view?
>>248136708What is 1 FRT?Also if it does well it means that future projects would be more likely from the creative team, Cygames/PA Works as a Collab etc. so I wouldn't say it was irrelevant.
>>248136428I'm okay with something being unrealistic, but I recognize it for what it is.
Touch the cow
>>248136769Highly dependent on a million factors. There would be no way to determine that even knowing viewing numbers so you can only take studios/productions at their word that they've got a decent or expected return and are content with it.>>248136771>What is 1 FRT?Saving Anime.>Also if it does well it means that future projects would be more likely from the creative teamThat has more to do with critical success than commercial success. Say you were the sound designer on a production barely anyone way and was widely regarded as shit, but the one saving grace was the music. Professionals in the industry pick stuff like that out and will hire the people that did well.
>>248137168quite the medium rare piece
>>248125939I appreciate the high effort photoshops, when was it first posted ?
>>248137417Thanks, I had seen some post metrics about how much views are required to be profitable and conversion shit. Guess it was all bogus
>>248137447I love it because she's big, but not unrealistically, separate-entities looking boobs.
>>248137752You can make very wild approximations, but it depends on a lot of stuff and what deals people have specifically made. Each platform is different, demographics are different, what cut and what it's based on are different, etc...
I thought we are going to see boss fight with him. What a waste.
>>248137853Lion executive deserved more lovehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8h_ppRN3AJ0
Maybe the show flopped because it was not good? Just consider it a moment.
>>248137985Lion Executive is Nagi. That's the Lion Ace Maid.
>>248137997Nagi is executive of Creatureland
>>248137796I just think she has a cute face
>>248137777sigh (unzips tentacle)
>>248138108Dazzlion is her personally managed cafe and her symbol is a lion. Lion ace maid is literally labeled as such in the credits.
>>248138323Ok. Honestly idk why I missed this detail.
>>248125939Needs Bernie at episode 8
>>248138576dubs prove it
>>248138622I kneel rankochads.
>>248125939Man, I'm really bummed out after watching this, seeing the quality of the animation and enjoying every single episode I can't think something that would be as good. I just want to watch another show that keeps me hooked like this one, any good recs?
>>248138323Pretty selfish to rig the festival so that Dazzlion would get more business when Creatureland was already getting kickbacks from every maid cafe in Akiba.I want more of this series. There's still 1999-2018 left. The de-escalation must have its own story worth telling.
>>248138622I was going to make a joke about the english dub, but I will defer to your digits.
>>248138902And you can have Akiba Maid War 0 movie about downfall of Ranko
>>248137985>>248137997>Not even a wiki page for the top tier maid>bad endShame, she mogged Nagi pretty hard, and likely would've been in good terms with the piggies after Nagomi's performance, even the cow ace maid seemed more capable to be murderous than her
>>248123095was akiba maid war actually good? i feel like it was boring
>>248139988>was akiba maid war actually good?It was great
>>248139988You're in a thread a month after it stopped airing, you'll only get people telling you it was.
>>248140008>>248140039be honest tho, was it boring?
>>248136163Most metrics I saw put it in what I would call 'average'. There's a pretty huge drop from the first few things like G-Witch, Chainsawman, SpyxFamily, later Bocchi, etc... and everything else. Akiba Maid would be near the top of the next tier down more or less, which is to say it was doing as well as you could reasonably expect normal anime to do. Bocchi was a breakaway hit nobody really saw coming, but the other big things are large, high budget productions with a lot of hype going into them from existing major franchises/properties.
>>248140207No. Even if it was retarded and bad, boring would be the last thing it is.
>>248137718It started here >>247327415 and got filled out in the following few threads, original anon did episodes 1 - 7 and 10 - 12, I did 8 and 9. If you're asking about the first completed post, then it's here >>247570975
>>248139988how?it was fucking crazy
>>248132563but we don't have manga
>>248133034try watching like first minute of the first episode
>>248123095They killed the wrong maid. It should've been >>248130140.
>>248141102It should have been piglet ace. Nagi is ADD
>>248132529You know that "new car smell", or that sweetish scent you get opening a booster pack of cards? That's "outgassing", where the vestigial fumes of the chemical creation that created them are leaking out from the plastic.
Everyone is dead in the end.Nagomi didn't surviveIt's just Yumechi who did another operation to look like Nagomi.
>>248141670So then Yumechi survived so not everyone is dead in the end.
>>248126789go to bocchi threads. it's terrible especially during seadog hours...
>>248141689Yumechi is shit
>>248136501>>248136570Nch in Nch in
Zoya and Shiipon alliance will always hate Ymechi-puta
The first half was dragged out with pointless shenanigans.It had a strong opening ep with the juxtaposition between the stylized violence and the musical part, too bad we didn't get more of that until the fucking finale.I enjoyed it but I really don't think it lived up to its potential.
>>248140207Threads definitely contributed, I don't think I'd ever rewatch it.
>>248140207It was awesome, considering rewatching it for the casino/undergoundfight/climbing of lady meido.
It wasn't very good.Why the fuck did ret/a/rds vote this as 2nd best anime this year? I couldn't even recommend the top 10 /a/nime list of 2022 to anyone in good faith.LycoReco was easily the 2nd best anime of that year, glad it topped the BD sales as well.
>>248136428That game is shit.
>>248143325Wow, cry more.You didn't even vote in the polls.
>>248143325I liked LycoReco but this was better. Bizarrely even with the batshit premise this took itself more seriously too.
>>248143325LycoReco had en entire arc that did nothing but detract from the overarching story. Even yurifags were mad.
>>248139988The show's actual quality is excessively overhyped. It's unique and helped bolster last season's kino rating by being so different from the usual fanfare but that's about it.
>>248144093>This no name contrarian pick of a show is excessively overhypedYou retards need to learn some new buzzwords. Overhyped is entirely meaningless period, nothing can be 'overhyped' except on an extremely individual level, trying to use it just highlights that you have literally nothing of actual substance to say and are trying to appeal to some vague and undefined group to add weight to your worthless utterance.
>>248123095Nice image, I'm saving it for later use.
>>248144421I'm sure the guy on Reddit that made it will be proud.
>>248144049The pantu episode was kino.
Anyone else doubted Nerula at first?I waited episodes for her being a traitor to Nagomi, but she stayed a true friend until the end.
>>248145725Most of the people in the threads seemed to think she would turn traitor. I think even Nagomi's VA stated she was afraid of that.
>>248143951link to poll results? i voted for akiba from multiple computers
How common is for an anime original to become a manga? I'd read an extended arc about Nagi and Ranko early timeline or something in between the time skips, even the other maid cafes could be expanded on aside of just being all obedient murderous drones, maybe seeing stories about other failed maids that got stomped by Manami or groups on the top of the hierarchy trying to take control of Akihabara, I doubt that Nagomi was the only person trying to stand up against them.>>248145725I had doubts about her because until that point every maid Nagomi had interacted with was a giant asshole, even piggies were kind of ruthless on their own right, but she was a real g to stand up against Manami on her own, it sucks she had to go but she had no one on to back her up, sadly her fate was sealed from the start.
>>248145760I think a lot of people did. I'm not much of a Japanese speaker so I don't know exactly how you're supposed to read her death comment, but it partially seems maybe surprised that Nerula was nice till the end.
>>248145694Was it actually made on reddit? Why is it being posted here?
>>248145694Don't care cool image look pretty.
>>248145725never after the oath
>>248146612Nagi took the oath too.
>>248146457I don't think that was implied, she just said she was a good girl from the start to the end. I believe they straight up told her Nerula was the conscience of the series when they had her read for her (she initially auditioned for Nagomi) so she would have known.
>>248146514People here read reddit and reposted it.
>>248146514Some guy either has a vendetta against the image itself or the tripfag that made it, he's been crying about Reddit for weeks even though it was made in a thread here.
>>248146757it looks like a /tv/ meme
>>248146778How do you make an image in a thread?
>>248146801You've never browsed /ic/?
>>248146737I figured it wasn't, but it was really funny given our speculation and conversations. Like rubbing it in.
>>248146391Most PA Works originals have manga adaptations. Dunno why this one didn't.
>>248146778Tripfags are inherently reddit
>>248146939To be fair Nagomi's VA said she was afraid Nerula would turn on her, unless I misunderstood. So there's that at least.Hell the first time Nerula appeared I was afraid Nagomi was going to kill her, but that was before her personality was really established.
>>248146801>OClets>>248146778but yes it was made here, not that really matters and this discussion is just autismo
>>248147591Use anonymize or filters.
>>248145725I still wanted the undercover cop twist
>yakuza setting>no soaplandCome on.
Was Japan really like that?
>>248137829>What a waste.That sentiment might as well describe the entire show.
>>248137853>ditched the cow>died
>>248133524It's not plot armor, it's just a rule of cool driven establishing character moment. Read Araki's book on manga-making, fiction doesn't have to follow the rules of reality or even of basic common sense.
>>248148359>Read Araki's book on manga-makingName?
>>248137985How is this race supposed to prove Nagi's dumbass ideology if it's rigged. Miserable hypocritical cunt.
>>248148359Araki has lost his marbles in the last decade so I don’t trust that.
>>248137985That Ranko pummeling the Ace Lion Lady.
>>248148059What did you find disappointing about it?
>>248146391Valvrave had one, as did Space Dandy. Not sure what others, but I guess it depends on whether they already had an idea for a manga, and alternatively, whether it drew enough eyeballs to justify one(if you caught a mangaka who happened to be between series and was interested, that's enough).
>>248138902>I want more of this series. There's still 1999-2018 left. The de-escalation must have its own story worth telling.How about a sequel about two maids from rival café (Ex: dragon maids and tiger maids) that proved themselves to be great detectives under the newly refunded Creature land, forced to partnered up to solve maid against maid crimes with the overarching plot being about a conspiracy to rekindle of the maid war?
>>248147833They avoided the prostitution/sex angle pretty hard, all things considered. Maybe they thought it would be too distracting or too obvious.
>>248139988How is it to have no soul?
>>248148098We don't know if that guy specifically did. That's not the boss, that's one of the guys who shows up at the end and gets in a shootout with the fight club lady but we can only confirm that she died.
>>248146677Nagi's a special case.
>>248149067Nah, Nerula was the special one imo.
What would intercourse with Nagi be like?
>>248149393She bites into your flesh as you hump her
>>248149393Stiff and unresponsive. You have a few extra holes to use though.
>>248148637Might makes right. She exercises power and wins.
>>248149058Nagomi had the cow Maid killed.
Why did the pig manager almost never wore the uniform like the other managers?
>>248149779Because she rarely worked as a maid.
>>248149807Oh, she's a lazy fuck.
>>248150289And she is lurking here.
>>248150424No wonder these threads don’t have OC, no one can use image editing software. You couldn’t adjust the perspective? Lazy fuck.
>>248150578We're stuck with reddit "OC" sadly.
>>248149393She'd intensively gaze at you without moving during the whole thing and you'd have no idea if she's enjoying it or not while being terrified of just being shot for displeasing her once you're done.
>>248149393She's a female lion so when she gets horny she bites your balls and won't take no for an answer.
What would intercourse with Nagomi be like?
>>248150708It’s a low bar if only redditors are capable of using GIMP.
>>248150924Lots of kissing and cuddling
>>248150924Nagomi doesn't know what it is.
>>248151151She knows what penises are and said she was interested in them.
Watched about 6 eps of this and I just can't continue. It reminds me of Quentin Tarantino in terms of how the story is nonsense made on the fly and covered up with shitty action.Well many people love his movies so its just a matter of taste.
>>248139348Lion maid was completely loyal to Nagi and wack. She even yelled at the others to shoot her.There is no way she would put the piggies over her boss.
>>248152167Upvoted my fellow redditor
>>248152422She clapped for Nagomi so clearly her loyalty was suspect.
>>248152422That was one of the crux of this part of this story. Before, Nagi only killed when someone was damaging the Zaibatsu but by killing her most loyal retainer, Nagi was showing that she didn't care anymore about Creatureland and she'd probably start killing her underling wantonly until her own Zaibatsu collapses.
>>248152422>Lion maid was completely loyal to Nagi and wack.Yeah, but she was sex. God, to be clawed by such creature.
>>248152726She clapped out of courtesy because up to this point, Nagi wanted them all to act like normal guests.
>>248153369Guests don't tell waitresses they're going to kill them after. Lion Ace knew she was playing with fire and she got burned due to her lack of loyalty.
>>248153743Crazy like a fox.
>>248138843You have to be a bit more specific. You want recent anime original wild rides? Akudama Drive, ID:Invaded, Vivy, Odd Taxi, Zombieland Saga. Samurai Flamenco but everyone's watched that by now
>Mid 30s MeidoShe's basically free agent. I'd retire her career and begin her stay at home motherhood phase of life
>>248124202I love her VA, perfect hag voice.
>>248153864I haven't watched Samurai Flamenco yet.
These are prostitutes right? I'd take 2nd from Right!
>>248153987They're maids, not prostitutes.
>>248128602I wonder how that really feels...
>>248153959You missed out big time not watching it live with /a/.
>>248154249It was the wildest shit in the last decade easily. Guillotine Gorilla was the last true shitstorm on /a/ that wasn't about somebody getting cucked
>>248132691She feels obtainableEven anon would have a chance.Just pay the bills and walk her home gently.
>>248154249I was working so much at that point it would have been very hard to keep up. I will run it back though, granted it won't be the same as watching it with /a/ it's the closest I can get now.
>>248143939i liked it, more than ronpa and ztd for that matter
>>248155850It’s good set of dirty jokes.
>>248123095>Is it true that Akiba Maid War flopped in Japan?Why don't you research it instead of asking /a//>If so, why would it happen when yakuza stuff is big there?Why are certain crime dramas doomed to fail in burgerland when crime is so popular there?
>>248133034I DON'T GET WHY PEOPLE POST IN THREADS FOR SERIES THEY HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN
>>248142840>>248143325dangerously FILTERED anons with poor taste
>>248140550>>248148811It's not as crazy as it should've been. Like the debt collector, a lot of characters and plot points get resolved quickly and anticlimactically. The first episode set expectations too high. Another example of a show that blew its load too early.
ShiiponCHADS are here.
Be honest /a/, did you think she was going to star in jav to pay denbts?>>248139988Almost dropped it after 3 episodes, for expecting it to repeat the same gag over and over again, but it picked up quite quickly after that. By the end I was thoroughly entertained.
>>248156885I don't know what was she trying to do.
>>248156885I was curious if they were going to play same gag each episode too, despite being entertained regardless, but it having actual thorough plot and shaking things up in order to keep things fresh was a pleasant surprise. Been years upon years since I enjoyed a show enough to immediately rewatch it several times. Didn't blow it's whole load half-way through like Kongming either.
>>248154408The shift in the story with episode 7 reveal is such wild shit, the series never been the same since. I miss Samurai Flam and Season 1 Valvrave threads, what a great series of rides they were.
>>248156885Who the fuck would want to see that ugly girl in JAV. Also JAV in 99 sucked with the huge mosaics, can't see shit captain.
>>248151070Sounds really nice.
>>248130073It's funny how it's not that much worse than the average dub
>>248161379Id argue it's slightly worse than average dub with how much dub quality has risen in last 10 years, granted Sentai have always been on lower rung of dubs.
>>248161312That's not funny, my brother died that way
>>248161447That's not true. Sentai is a relatively new company.
>>248161508They've been around for 15 years now, and their dubs tend to be worse than the competition. Which part is untrue.
>>248161633The part about always since they haven't always been around.
>>248161868They always been one of the worse companies when it comes to dubs since inception, so not wrong statement.
>>248161491I know right, that's a common occurrence you don't have brother
>>248149003With so few episodes to work with they avoided a lot of potential angles.
>>248153883She really got lucky with Ranko's arc being on its climax, I think anything before Manami ep would've been a head shot, I guess Ranko was too hurt to even bring herself to do anything, and Panda had a score to settle with Suehiro and Nagi so its kind of understandable.
>>248160692Yes it does
>>248161924I loved the sound she does when getting slapped aswell as the funny squirt sound effect when blood pops again and again. I can hear it.
>>248156690I respect her more for embracing her bimbo looks and for standing up for Yasuko, also the most chill character on the show next to ramen shop owner and Nerula.
>>248156885>denbtsIf ever we needed confirmation these threads are filled to the brim with redditors
>>248162569Ramen guy and Nerula are only more chill because they lack body heat.
>>248162167This one was super intentional though. They gave everyone super frilly underskirts, generally avoided fanservice. They were a little tongue-in-cheek with the gambling selling girls to fishing boats since that's a riff on sex trafficking, but they at least seemed to think it would be literally working on the boat and not 'working' on the boat.
>>248162386I think they said they blasted Nagomi's VA with a squirt gun for that sound effect. I don't feel like going back to double check the interview though.
>>248164191Is that a riff on it? I was actually pretty surprised when they said one of the cafes was pushing drugs since they seemed to purposely avoid certain things.
>Ranko is the only one with eyes open Death Flag Bros... why we are always right?
>>248165099Most of you guys said she's live and everyone else would die though.Also people talked about Nagomi having death flags from episode 1.
>>248164253>Is that a riff on it?Yes, when they say they're going to sell a girl to a boat that implies something totally different under normal circumstances than what was shown. Now that could be Tenchou's misunderstanding of what they're actually doing, but as far as the show presented they would actually be crabbing and not a fuckhole for sailors.
>>248161924Lol imagine if she peed herself after she got shot
>>248165759Imagine if she pooped.
>>248165402I thought it was a play off the hard labor they had them do in Kaiji. Now I'm imagining him losing and becoming a fuck hole and surprisingly it's kind of turning me on.
>>248123095I don't get it. Why are maids Yakuza?
>>248165898There's a pretty good recent doujin of this happening to Seiya Ichijou.
>>248165935Because japanese wordpray of meido and maid.
>>248166043That's not really my thing, but maybe it is since I'm responding to it. I'll take a look I guess.
>>248165935It's explained in the show.
>>248133034I miss this show.S2 never.
>>248162217That "moe~" was pure sex, holy shit.
>>248166426>I miss this show.Yumechi didn't.
>>248166542Who shot the OP in the last episode? Nobody even cared even though the OP did nothing wrong. Press F to pay respects.
>>248167358Tenchou had Zoya shoot it.It was a good OP, I will miss it. Even though Zoya didn't
>>248127839Manager is based on this character:
>>248130073Literally an English course conversation.
>>248162569>>248156690Shiipon is inarguably the most underrated girl. She was standing her ground for her morals and lifestyle choices long before nagomi was. Plus, you don't know how glad I was that the show didn't make her to be a slut despite her gyaru design.not that gyarus are typically sluts, but it's cliche for the blonde bimbo with lots of makeup to have the personality of a dick hungry rock.
>>248167837Shockingly the biggest slut turned out to be the panda. Unless you're a bassist.
>>248146778anons arent allowed to do anything creative anymore
>>248168116I'm not on the side of the schizophrenic retard that won't shut the fuck up about reddit, but it genuinely was not an anon that made the image. Anyway it doesn't help that the OP is so fucking garbage it makes me think he used that image to bait the faggot into shitposting in here in the first place. Whatever, it's not as bad as any of the other generals on this board but man I wish people would just shut the fuck up when threads start going in circles. I don't even know why I keep this tab open anymore
>>248168116>anons arent allowed to do anything creative anymoreLIKE RANKO
>>248167837>She was standing her ground for her moralsShe had no morals.
>>248168370Fun things are fun
>>248168310It was obviously a bait OP.
>>248168408"Killing people is fun" is not a moral standing. Also she had no particular attachment to it, she fell into the life and literally tried to run.
>>248168310>but it genuinely was not an anon that made the imagebut it was. i saw him make the image in real time in these threads. check the archives.
>>248168447Wasn't it Pokemon Trainer with his tripcode that posted that?
>>248168447A tripfag is not an anon!
>>248168443>"Killing people is fun" is not a moral standing.It actually is. But also its not what Shiipon thinks so it's not relevant either.
>>248127381idk what you're talking about but small eyes on anime girls are hot
>>248168531>>248168553either way it was made here, and these threads are infinitely more comfy without reddit shit flinging retards
>>248168574She didn't want to ditch her make up and act like a professional when working at the cafe, her morals had nothing to do with it and as soon as that episode ended she stopped being a character and became a Sango-like background decoration.
>>248168713Anon with the smooth backpedal.
>>248168820dont use terms you dont know how to use
>>248168995I'm tako san by the way
>>248168932It's being used properly. Don't continue trying to argue shit after you've been proven wrong.
>>248168995Did she die too?
>>248169130proven wrong on what? a tripcode doesnt equal made on reddit
>>248169143Unknown. The whole place exploded so maybe not, but the octopus room might be somewhere so remote it wasn't affected.
>>248168802You don't have to be the central focus to be a bro, just look at zoya.
>>248169143No, she's catching crabs in Bering Sea
>>248169339>No, she's catching crabs in Bering SeaFrom me
>>248169243You claimed it was an anon, it clearly wasn't.
>>248169436Imagine using Nagomi as a fuck hole...
>>248169486>You claimed it was an anon, it clearly wasn't.You claimed it was made on reddit, it clearly wasn't. The only one backpedalling here is you.
>>248169676I never made that claim. Not everyone who posts as Anonymous is the same person.
>>248169678Oh shit, does Cobra have Akiba Maid War shout outs?
>>248169728The movie is full of subtle Akiba Maid Wars references
>>248169534before or after wheelchair?
>>248169990Holy crap he got one
>>248169534This but with the crab on
>>248168995I immeadetly thought when I saw the octopus it was going to be perveted. But making it Ice Crab fishing was fucking hilarious.>>248167616I don't think Meowth would leave me in an ice bath after messing with his crew.What I really enjoy for episode two is that Nagomi is still VERY affected by what she saw Ranko do in the last episode, having genuine PTSD.Also, I convinced my friend to watch this after they thanked me for turning them onto Bocchi the Rock.Have you tried to get someone to watch this show yet anon?
>>248169707>Not everyone who posts as Anonymous is the same person.Maybe you should learn your own lesson then? You're clearly playing this same stupid game, it was the entire intent behind your post.
>>248169911Obviously before since that's when she would have ended up as a crab girl or whatever the fuck it was.
>>248170204>I immeadetly thought when I saw the octopus it was going to be perveted.We still don't know what's actually in the octopus room...
>>248170219Obviously I was talking about the person claiming it was an anon that made it.
>>248170204>What I really enjoy for episode two is that Nagomi is still VERY affected by what she saw Ranko do in the last episode, having genuine PTSD.That was actually what won me over on the show.Been having a hard time getting people to watch it. The only one who mentioned they checked it out dropped it on episode 1.
>>248170324>That was actually what won me over on the show.For me it was this. I knew we were going to be in for a special time.
>>248170422The only fanservice in the entire show, and they kind of dulled it by showing her stitching up a wound. Maybe if you're into that it makes it better though.
>>248170558>The only fan serviceMy brother in christ, they're all in maid costumes.
Just finished it. Thank you for sharing this treasure, anons.moe moe kyun <3
>>248170679>Another anon finished the showThis is why I keep posting in these threads.
>>248170732I'm now thinking about this line in a completely different way.
>>248170638You know what I fucking meant.
>>248170732Wtf? Is that real?
>>248171215It's just a custom gun I made in Warzone 2.0You didn't think they're selling a gun as merchandise for the show?
>>248169676Except he’s right, if it’s made by a tripfag then it’s equivalent to made by reddit
>>248171215No, it's from a video game
>>248171364I want to fuck Yumechi
>>248171267I thought they just had the gun with that name even before show was out.
>>248171432Plastic fetish much?
>>248171267Akiba Maid War didn't create Moe Moe Kyun.
>>248171364I wish it didn't go like this for the first episode, it filtered people a bit too hard, you needed Ranko doing more of a "John Wick" scene.But it's a maid show with maids gangsters, not a gansgter show with gangster maids so that's what was needed.
>>248171649>it filtered people a bit too hardReally? I thought this is what hooked people.
>episode 126 shots from revolver>episode 1>>248171364
>>248171699For the Japanese probably, for the westaboos here it's perfect for them.I mean more regular folk.
>>248171649Agreed. The first episode was a little TOO over-the-top considering most of the show isn't really like that. Although I did notice it kind of came back to being similar at the final episode which I found pretty kino.
>>248171924It had a musical number with some throwbacks but it wasn't really like the first episode.
>>248171747>>248171924Pretty sure half the point is it's Nagomi tripping balls due to trauma. What we're shown isn't exactly what's happening for the most part, but what Nagomi perceives of things as happening. It happens again after she gets shot in the last episode as the song goes to a climax because it's physically impossible for their to be maids behind her waving glowsticks.
>>248172172It would have helped if she was shaken out of it by Ranko, but no such scene. That's also how I cope with the scene.
>muh realismFuck off
>>248162217>>248166495I know right? That "mooeee~" was probably my second favorite line behind one of the lines in the baseball episode where Shiipon and Yumechi said they were being maids
Yumechi's tight, natural vagina
>>248171364I want a version of this that has all the sound removed and then changed with what Nagomi would actually hear which would be a lot of gunshots and screaming and not peppy music.
>>248172172Perhaps they just stylized the last scene a bit. It's not like the series was really grounded in reality to begin with.
>>248172298>natural vaginaNot anymore after plastic
>>248172329She bugged the cafe and had earbuds in during the shootout.
>>248172055Plastic is naturally hairless.
>>248172335>Perhaps they just stylized the last scene a bit.Both scenes are stylized. Whether you think that's supposed to be to put the audience in the mindset of Nagomi or just because it's visually interesting/cool would be up to you to guess unless they talk about it in an interview somewhere what their intent wass.
>Rewatching Ep3>Amazing scene of Ranko knocking out the Russian>Nagomi in awe until Ranko fucking whales on her cause "Oh shit it's MMA."It's so fucking funny, this show is just incredibly well written from anyway you look at it.
>>248162217How is this pig so fucking SMUG!
I want an image of the graffiti about Yumechi and then a reaction from her saying it's not true while she suddenly has FAT, RUDE TITS.
>>248172672She's the Pig Boss.
>>248172694It's true. It's damn true.
>>248172172Was Nagomi tripping balls when Nerula was fighting and that's why we got "Nanomachines, son" and stuff in that scene?
>>248173520died like a bitch.
>>248173463Nah, that's likely just production errors
>>248173691Maybe the maids with light sticks behind Nagomi were too.
>>248173691They had a very close attention to detail in this series. You can't just write stuff off like that.
>>248173794That one is too intentional and complex. Nerula's injury disappearing could be explained by the back half of the fight having been animated first and they added a front half where Miyabi grazes her that doesn't exactly line up with what they already made and they didn't catch it/correct it.
>>248173815They aren't infallible. Ranko gets suddenly injured in the fight against Manami's group, and this injury carries over into the baseball episode. I assume at some point there's a few frames of when that happened, but somehow they got cut, possibly because it was a more involved affair that ate up too much time. But then going back and removing all the signs of it happening would likewise be too much work so the injury itself remained even though we don't know what caused it.
>>248173815>>248173907Yumechi is also drawn like a zombie in episode 4 during most of the final scene where Shiipon is trying to blow up the totem, but once she gets out on the roof she loses her eyebags.
>>248173844>>248173907There was a very close attention to detail in this show, to the point where I do not believe they would have made a mistake like that. Even in episode 7 when they show the area Nerula was killed a week before, they made sure to put a bloodstain in a different location. It was a week later and there was no way the blood would still be there so they put a different bloodstain from someone else being killed and had them confuse it.
>>248173960That was a plastic surgery failure.
>>248173960>Earns double the money of anyone else>Is losing sleep for itWhat do you think she's doing...?
>>248174038After hours hand jobs.
>>248174038>What do you think she's doing...?Me
>>248172607Episode 3 was the best
>>248174219and Manami and Nagi.
>>248135782Holy shit do you read the stuff you write? Oh yeah Ranko just did nothing for 15 years and has no real fighting experience. That's why she's trigger-happy and coldly kills people like it's nothing, barely reacts to getting shot and just nonchalantly treats her wound as if she's done it many times before, and can easily beat the shit out of a champion fighter who's been trained by the Russian military since childhood.>If anything the one week Nagomi trainedThanks for bringing that up because that just makes things even more absurd. If the one week Nagomi trained was enough to make her turn the tides, you'd assume that you only need a group of several experienced ninjas to wipe out all the maids in Akihabara. What are they doing with that much power?
>>248132691Literally no dignity. You could put it in her ass for a seafood dinner.
>>248175460>Thanks for bringing that up because that just makes things even more absurdYou mean like the entire fucking series? Both of these circumstances had the characters do what they had to because of the plot. How difficult is this to wrap your brain around?Most of the stuff you seem to be questioning was established by the series itself, they didn't exactly give Ranko a lot of time to be fighting outside of prison. She was maybe a maid for 2-3 years, then went to prison for the 15 years you seem to be implying she did stuff during. They directly stated she refused to pick up a gun before Michiyo was killed and they also heavily implied that was put in jail for taking revenge for the same killing. This took the form of her shooting an entire cafe up by herself with zero experience. Maybe she worked with Michiyo and Uzuko for a year then was on the run for 2 max after the shooting, but even that seems pretty unlikely.So when the fuck did she get all this experience exactly? I can see her being hardened and physically strong from prison but being able to gun down a small army makes no sense with how little experience she'd actually have outside of jail. Also, once again she seemed to only be able to do that in one single episode and the rest of the time she was maybe slightly more competent than most of her coworkers.
>>248176398Anon, killing roaches is not hard
>>248176446Apparently it was too hard for Ranko.
It's like none of you ever watched a tarantino film.
>>248176679Saying something is unrealistic and having a problem with that are two different things.
>>248123095The show was on the same basket as South Park, shock value and black humor of dubious quality with a varnish of pretending to send some deep message about peace and fulfilling one's wishes, and then some fanservice because why not, of course this ringed a lot with a major chunk of /a/ users, becoming 2nd in the voting shows why you must always take what /a/ says with a pinch of salt, by the end of the day they too are simply trying to look like they are projecting a specific image while most of them are not aware they are just part of the joke too.
>>248176845People are really butthurt this got voted 2nd.
>>248176904Yeah, this and last thread shitposting suddenly ramped up hard when it was pretty fairly quiet for last few months.
>>248176904That was the point.
>>248176582I'm glad that this bitch Ranko got what she deserved.
Yumechi is the worst maid
>>248177351Same, fuck her.
>>248176009She also gives the best handjobs.
>>248177689Nope, that would be Nagomi
>>248123095It flopped because it was flaccid yuri bait. If it was actually yuri, it'd be successful.
>>248177777Why was Witch from Mercury successful then, that shit went absolutely nowhere with the main couple.
>>248177430Take that back
>>248176582No no. Killing ALL the roaches is really hard. Killing roaches isn't.
>>248177729Nagomi doesn't know how to give a proper handjob, come on.
>>248176845i think youre a bit of a dummy
>>248133471>>248133675>it wasn't just fake violence for comedy purposes Okay I'm exiting thread, downloading batch.
>>248177849It's just tomato juice, don't worry about it
>>248177824She will learn it someday.
>>248177927The same can't be said about footjobs
>>248177795It's only the first half, retarded incel. Do you watch 6 episode of a one-cour anime and complain that the main conflict hasn't been resolved yet?Witch of Mercury was successful because of good writing, good animation and the likeable characters, especially Suletta and Miorine. There's a reason why the G-Witch general is still going strong whereas the shitty anime you like can barely get a single thread going and has to constantly spam it on the board.
>>248177824She has a high level of interest and will learn fast.
>>248156478I was drawn in by the art in the OP and then expressed interest in the show while sharing a silly misconception that I had about it. It seems like a pretty common thing on /a/ really. Anyway I am going to watch it now.
>>248178012I'm sure Miorinne will have zero issue being with a fucking psychopath and somehow that will be good writing if she hand waves it.
>>248178093Do you hetincels not know what character arcs and character development is? I guess not, judging from all the shitty het isekai there is out there.
>>248177960Maybe she'll use her hands to manipulate her legs and get skilled over time.
>>248161924How did we go from this to the absolute suffering in the latter half?
>>248178112What sort of shit tier character development would make her okay with that?What sort of shit tier character development gets a girl to be that okay with killing after a single conversation?Oh wait, the shit level writing in witch from mercury.
>>248178142Nagomi probably suffered less in episodes 7-11 than she did 2-6. Hell Baseball game was clean fun where no one even died.
>>248178142Because you only cared about Ranko and watching people you don't care about die and Nagomi being traumatized and nearly killed over and over didn't phase you?
>>248178171>Nagomi being traumatized and nearly killed over and over didn't phase youNot that anon, but no. That was funny.
>>248176904They can keep crying.
>>248178012>It's only the first half, retarded incel. Do you watch 6 episode of a one-cour anime and complain that the main conflict hasn't been resolved yet?I'd complain about a 12 episode anime that accomplished less than 1 episode of a normal entry in the franchise.
>>248178210Well that's why you were fine with the first half and suffered during the second.
>>248178241They'll prolly kill their families over this.
>>248178171>implying any deaths were impactful until ep6 and nagomi being traumatized wasn't played for laughsThat bunny's head comically continuing to squirt blood on a traumatized nagomi is fucking toddler tier compared to the real feels post-nerula
>the yurischizo is back>people falling for itClassic.
>>248178267This wouldn't happen if we were on Reddit with the OC makers.
>>248178273Same guy spams up the Mercury threads too, only changing from hating hetero to having yuri. Same post style and timing.
>>248178252>>248133471Nigger you don't throw THAT much blood at nagomi and call it a tragic.
>>248178272Your point is absolutely correct but I felt nothing from Nerula's death besides slight annoyance at Nagomi and Ranko.
>>248178272A lot of stuff was played for laughs, it all comes down to how you take it. I was disgusted watching all those roaches die and felt bad for Nagomi, so I felt like the first half of the series hit pretty hard too.Different people view stuff different ways, that was my point, not that I think you should have viewed things differently.
>>248178295Maybe you should go back there.
>>248178363No need, people are sharing the reddit oc here
>>248178326Protip: Post means after.
>>248178375Like fucking clockwork, well played.
>>248178354Well it is my view that you are a huge pussy. I have it on good authority that it is an objectively correct one.
>>248178397Well, I care very much about your opinion.
>>248176398>Both of these circumstances had the characters do what they had to because of the plotExcept Ranko slaughtering all those maids wasn't really necessary to drive the plot forward as it was to establish her as a total powerhouse, which is established first before any of her backstory. If later information contradicts previously established events, its the fault of the later plot points, not the earlier ones.>So when the fuck did she get all this experience exactly? I can see her being hardenedYou can't say for sure what she's been doing all that time. She's clearly established to be an experienced and veteran killer not only from episode 1, which doesn't happen just from being hardened from sitting in jail.
>>248178496Her being said powerhouse was literally just that episode, but that slaughter set the stage for Nagomi's arc, the issues with Maidalien and the issues with Kedamonoland. It was super important for the entire series and absolutely needed for the storyline to progress the way it did.They established a rather small timeline there, so it's pretty clear they didn't really care about it making sense, kind of like Nagomi becoming a Ninja Master in 8 days. Not really sure why this is so difficult to understand, the show didn't really take itself all that seriously so them doing the plot armor shit in episode 1 and 7 really doesn't feel that out of place.
>>248178496>If later information contradicts previously established events, its the fault of the later plot points, not the earlier ones.Then what's the problem with Nagomi then? She refused to fight before and when she finally chose to she was an absolute beast. The points later on when she was weak was plot induced stupidity.
>>248178666>>248175460>Thanks for bringing that up because that just makes things even more absurd. If the one week Nagomi trained was enough to make her turn the tides, you'd assume that you only need a group of several experienced ninjas to wipe out all the maids in Akihabara. What are they doing with that much power?
>>248178496Don't forget the death of her mentor made her go apeshit and start actually being violent, to the point even the crooked cops couldn't turn a blind eye on her path of revenge.
> this retarded debate lasted the entire thread
>>248178686She trained at that cafe for a week, they never established that was the only time she trained, it could have easily been for the lion's share of the 17 years before the series started.
>>248178728Then she wouldn't have been a scared outsider to the underworld for so long. She was clearly weak and unprepared for violence before that.
>>248178751She was opposed to violence, that doesn't mean she couldn't fight. Ranko was able to shoot up a cafe right after her boss died and that's supposedly no issue.
>>248178785>She was opposed to violenceShe was more than just opposed to it. She's reacting like it was her first time seeing it.
>>248178785And Ranko was a real example of someone being opposed to violence not necessarily meaning she couldn't fight. She was always a part of that world even before turning to violence.
>>248178819She wanted to be a cute maid and refused to fight. She was literally the same as Nagomi before Michiyo died and that was the entire point.>>248178801She seemed to be able to fight quite well when she actually fought, so there's no issue there per your earlier argument.
>>248178895>She wanted to be a cute maid and refused to fightThat's not quite the same. Nagomi was terrified of violence, not just refusing to fight, and Ranko has been in that world for a lot longer.>She seemed to be able to fight quite well when she actually fought, so there's no issue there per your earlier argument.Except the implication is clearly that that was because of her one-week training while the implication for Ranko is that she's a veteran killer who has been doing this for a long time.
>>248178895And let me dispel the notion that Ranko is only portrayed as slightly more competent than her peers after the first episode. I don't think even Zoya is capable of throwing back a grenade or gaining the upper hand over several other maids, some of them armed, while unarmed.
>>248179142It's exactly the same and your insistence it's not is completely baseless. We saw literally one instance of her being exposed to violence in her past and it was when Michiyo was killed and she did not seem used to it at all.Once again when Ranko went and shot up the cafe Okachimachi worked at she was not a veteran killer but she needed to do that for the story to work. The timeline doesn't really work for be being a seasoned veteran in episode 1 either but that's already been explained to you multiple times.>>248179174Maybe she was more than slightly more competent but she was far from the one maid army she was in episode 1. Episode 1 was the exception, hell you could write off 7 as one too, but episode 1 was far from being representative of what she was capable of in any other episode.
>>248179798My hag wife...
>>248179316>We saw literally one instance of her being exposed to violence in her past and it was when Michiyo was killed and she did not seem used to it at allThat's anguish from seeing the person you care about most getting killed, and she seemed to react a lot better than Nagomi going into shock from seeing randoms getting killed. And considering how she responded to Michiyo's death compared to how Nagomi responded to Nerula's death, she definitely seems a lot more used to violence.>The timeline doesn't really work for be being a seasoned veteran in episode 1 either but that's already been explained to you multiple times.Once again, you're just making assumptions. As I told you before, you don't know what happened to her in those 15 years but the anime clearly indicates that she's a veteran killer by the time the show begins.>episode 1 was far from being representative of what she was capable of in any other episode.Again, most of them didn't even have guns. You're putting an arbitrary limit on what Ranko is capable of when she's clearly meant to be a force to be reckoned with and nearly unstoppable.
