A toast...to all those strong anons who thought the explosion loli's spinoff was a flop
>>252980930Should have posted this tomorrow. At least then, we'd have new screens from next week episode to discuss.
>>252981096This thread could probably last till then. I will never forgive what studio dive did to Arne's clothing.
>>252981334She's still easily the hottest girl in Explosion.
>>252981646She could've been hotter. Way hotter
>>252981096Arnes more like sexo
>>252981096>>252981646Jap reception to her has been pretty positive, so I'm wondering why no fanart.
>>252982664>wearing her original gear It's not fair
So what's the consensus on Arnes? Do you prefer her anime or manga/LN characterization?
>>252983012I prefer the anime version because I like how she comes across as being innocent while our hero looks like an asshole.
>>252983012Mix her anime characterization with her LN look.
>>252983012I kinda like how her natural tendency bends towards being nice (enough that she was taken advantage of by everyone before meeting Megumin), but she can still be pretty evil when she needs to be. Also love how she's a crybaby. The other versions would never show this sort of weakness.
It's cool to see them hang out on earth
>>252983012>>252983188Anime version has enough emotional depth to feel sadness and depression. The other versions only felt rage when beaten. They were much more cold and demonic.
>>252983138Wouldn't that clash too much?
>>252980930If I were to pee in her butt, would the resulting enema be purified enough for me to drink it?
>>252983188>>252983323LN version is a crybaby too. The manga is the only one that's off:>Arnes’ mumblings were interrupted.>Yes, this was where Crimson Demons gathered, where Advanced Magic was common – the Crimson Demon Village.>“A devil who dares to casually walk into this village must either very confident or very stupid…”>Hearing this, Arnes broke out in a cold sweat and glanced around.>She remained in her half-bending pose.>Her lips quivered and her eyes became teary as she saw the Crimson Demons advancing.
>>252983841No no, the gap would be bigger. Better. She's dressed like a total whore but she's actually a cute dork loser.
>>252983862It probably depends on how long she's making contact with it.
>>252983961Yeah, looked over the translations, and while the anime does try to make Arnes more moe, it also follows her LN characterization way better than the manga.
I am so jealous of Kazuma and his harem.
>>252983057https://youtu.be/fWyNvDdtja4>kazuma STILL refuses to give them the D
>>252983057This Darkness is absolute sexo
>>252983862You already know the answer anon.
>>252986705>wanting a woman who can't handle her sword handle YOUR sword>wanting a woman who treats herself like a punching bag to bear your children>wanting someone who will always eagerly imagine herself being raped or NTRd by Ogres or uncouth men
>>252986021I always wonder why kazuma is always in the background when he is integral to the group in pics like this. I get it for other MC's that are generic but not for kazuma
>>252987097>why kazuma is always in the backgroundTo try and get people to buy figurines of the worthless girls.
>>252987097It's a joke
>>252987290Its more a common trope with series that feature mutiple girls. Usually the girls are front and center with the mc in the background. But i figure kazuma should be front and center as well since he is one of the MCs with a big enough presence. More than darkness honestly
a toast to the worst girl's show failing
>>252988595To me, she now acts like an asshole- sufficiently smart kinda arrogant and looks down on people. In the main story she is charmingly dumb, full of herself not reaching arrogance, and see everyone but Kazuma and yunyun, equally.
>>252986705I wish they show her abs more in the anime and manga.
>>252980930I like Aqua-sama. Konobusa is not fun without her.
>>252988820We have someone better now.

>>252981334>>252982391What do you expect? Anime has been getting railed with censorship for a while now, you have to be literal porn to escape some of it.Not even just erotic stuff either, I just don't get how people get hyped over new shit these days when it's all watered down unless it's tryhard/edgy shit. Especially ecchi, holy fuck.
>>252989697I wonder if a man like him ever got any.
>>252980930Unprotected sex with Aqua!
I'm so fucking sick of all this covered up modern safe horny shit.
>>252993285>safe hornyIs this actually gonna become a buzzword?
if it has YunYun it's an automatic AOTY
>>252993285HUH? HELLO? ARE YOU SERIOUS? HIS STATEMENT DOESN'T MAKE ANY FUCKING SENSE SINCE HER CLOTHINGS HIDE EVERYTHING ALREADY. FUCKING CENSORSHIP I FUCKING HATE SAFE HORNY SO FUCKIGN MUCH WHY IS IT INFECTIONG JAPANESE MEDIA TOO FUCK.YOU JSUT KNOW EVEN THE ORIGINAL KONOSBA WOULD BE CENSORED TO DEATH IF IT AIRED NOWFUCK
>>252993440What? you want to use other words? censorship, sanitized design, neutered design, compromised design? any more? no those words aren't descriptive enoughthis outfit >>252993285 , while censored, is STILL trying to be sexy, still trying to make the viewers horny WITHIN the politically and socially safe/acceptable "boundary"fiuck I fucking hate the recent safe horny trend so fucking much FUCK OFF FROM MY ANIME STOIP CENSORING EVERYTHING I LIKE
How does nippleschizo manage to worm his way into every thread?
>>252993549>>252993488Take a chill pill man
>>252994375>>252995022>NOOOOOOO YOU HAVE TO BE CONTENT WITH CENSORSHIP!never
>>252980930all of this made me realize that aqua does most of the heavy lifting on this series
>>252981334Any chance the BDs will fix it?
>>252982630This. She's really hot and has a nice design, but nobody seems to care.
>>252981334it looks better though
>>252994258Yunyun and Megumin with a jar filled with Yunyun's milk
>>252995255It's obvious now, isn't it? How many jokes quite simply don't work if she's not there? Especially when you see how one note Darkness and Megumin are.
>>252980930No Aqua, no watch. It's that simple.
>>252981096I need to fuck her.It's be amazing, because I'm what she would consider a worthless man so she'd hate it.
>>252981096>>252996194Who else thinks the hood raincoat is very cute? It looks like something a much younger character would wear. How old is Arnes, physically, anyways?
>>252996544In the LN, Megumin says Arnes looks 20 at the very most, so probably in the 16-20 year range.
>>252996544I love the costume. It makes her feel like some kind of traveling jester or entertainer, giving her a playful and friendly look. If this were a darker setting, she could have been an incredibly creepy. unnerving or sexual villain.But I like what we have. Arnes looks fantastic and I wish the Japs gave her fanart.
Anime Arnes looks cuter desu
>>252996392Give it two episodes
my cute friendless wife and mother of our children
I think Arnes was the dry run for Heine. They are remarkably similar.
>>252998060>wants to have children with (You) so she'll have friends that can't stop being her friendwould you provide?
>>252998199I'd give YunYun 30+ 'friends'
>>252983322I just realized that Lean and the beastkin could not visit earth.
>>252998199yes, at least make her together 5 friends
>>252996194>>252996590I really hope the bracelet and lousy men thing plays a role in her defeat. It'd be lame if they introduced that plot thread just to have it go nowhere.
>>252998244If you cut off her tail (which I still don't understand why they gave her one,) Rin could visit earth
>>252999329>Yunyun was trembling and staring in the same direction.>And also—>“…!? Wh-What is this mana…! No, divine aura…!?”>Arnes’ expression was even more frightened than when she nearly died in Alcanretia. Her magic was halted mid-way as well. It was as if she met a natural enemy. The person Arnes feared was of course in the direction we were staring at. Incidentally, that was our destination, Axel. Arnes was so frightened that she didn’t realize she’d released her grip on Chomusuke. Chomusuke fell from her hands.>“…Ah!!”>Hovering in mid-air, Arnes finally noticed her mistake. She went to catch Chomusuke immediately, but stopped when she saw Yunyun charging over. Yunyun caught Chomusuke as she was about to hit the ground. Arnes saw this and breathed a sigh of relief.>“…Wh-What are you doing…!?”>She looked at me as I finished my incantation and pointed my staff at her. The tip of the staff held a huge amount of compressed mana, glowing with a white light. The watching passengers in the carriage noticed this light and swallowed their saliva. They have no magic training, yet their instincts must have told them this light is very unnatural. Arnes’ face paled.>“…What is this magic?”>“Explosion Magic.”She shivered as I replied casually. Yunyun was running towards me with Chomusuke in her arms. Arnes couldn’t be bothered with her anymore. She fixed her stare on me.“…I understand. I surrender, Crimson Demon. Spare me and I swear to serve you. I apologize for saying you are merely all-talk.”>“Don’t apologize. Crimson Demons have no mercy once they are in battle. Your death was sealed once you faced me.”>Hearing this, Arnes was stunned while still hovering in the air.>"If that's how it is-">Then, with a twitching smile, she quickly raised her hand towards me…!>“-Cursed Lightning!”>“Explosion—!!”>My magic was marginally faster than Arnes’. On this day, my sure-kill spell exploded in the sky of the town of Axel for the first time.
>>252999793That's how it'll happen. It'll be inelegant though, as the reason why Arnes was distracted was because of Aqua in Axis. Aqua's shenanigans were cut from the anime (there really isn't a good place to fit them), so it'll feel like it came out of nowhere.
>>252999793>“…I understand. I surrender, Crimson Demon. Spare me and I swear to serve you. I apologize for saying you are merely all-talk.”>“Don’t apologize. Crimson Demons have no mercy once they are in battle. Your death was sealed once you faced me.”Isn't that a bit evil?
>>253000085Despite the goofiness, Crimson Demons are called Demons for a reason. There's a reason why they are feared by others, and their chief deity is Strgnoc, Goddess of Destruction, after all.Also Test: >>253000000
>>253000085yes, Megumin is evilshe wants to usurp the demon king
>>252999682Cut off!? Barbaric.
>>253000396either that or she deals with the stares of disgust from people that think she's a yiffer
>>253000282She's a bit too young to be actually evil.
>>253000589Imagine how many asses Dust will be kicking that day.
