Anime about girls getting isekai'd into a fantasy world.
It looks like the girls have superpowers based on fairy tales.
Episode 1 was kinda bad, but there's hope for some light yuri.
The title is German and means Fairy Tale Girls.
It looked pretty average, desu.
But not bad enough to drop it on first ep at least.
This is pretty much the post I see in every thread. And I'm the kind of man who simply doesn't drop a show, no matter what. Therefore it's a good thing I purposefully avoid downloading first episodes on a whim, otherwise I'd be watching nearly everything that airs now.
It doesn't count as dropping the show if you find somebody else to watch it for you.
But wouldnt that mean that you are basing your oppinions on what others percieve to a series that you would otherwise like?
Story's okay, characters are cute, plenty of fanservice. Seems perfectly watchable to me.
I watch anything Kantoku touches, even if it is objectively bad.
Glass no Hana to Kowasu Sekai was pretty shit.
I wonder how this show will turn out.
Maybe it will be good?
Oh god dammit I was trying not to pick up too many shows this season!
Kinda was interested in it when reading the describtion of it last week, but turns out it's just another yuribait show trying to blueball me.
FHANA OP WOO WOO
They fucking better touch up the animation though, because they are cutting corners like crazy with reused scenes and episode footage. It looks like ass.
The first episode was intensely boring until she got naked and ran around near the end. I was actually starting to feel sleepy right up to that point. That's not a good sign, and the ED has way too many girls in it that I feel nothing but apprehension from this going forth.
Not that it would be that hard but I got to compliment the author for not fucking the title up in any way. If you'd tell me that this was the title of a German book series, I wouldn't question it in any way.
>in any way in any way
Don't drink and post.
Too bad they pronounce Mädchen as "mähen".
So? Do you want them to say "mädo-chen"?
Yes. My autism demands it.
"mahen" is how they pronounce Märchen
"medohen" is Mädchen
I can understand that "ch" is hard to pronounce for foreigners, but they could at least try
I don't think a German author would come up with that title. Märchenhafte Mädchen maybe, but Märchen Mädchen, while I appreciate how similar the words are, is just not good German.
It's starting to remind me a bit of Soushin Shoujo Matoi, but the cast is all mixed up. Also SSM could at least afford making an OP.
Wow, they really are magic. Just look at how easily they can change size.
Well, at least that one is pronounced correctly, ignoring the o.
We finally get some more girls and next episode is a hotspring one.
I have no exceptions of this show but the quality keeps pulling me back in.
Did they forget how to Buchhülle?
I was incredibly skeptic from the get go, but remained hopeful it could improve going forth. Yet here we are at the end of the first quarter and the show is still hot garbage.
I have a feeling this one will be quite a pain to finish.
Which country is your favorite?
I know anon, luckily I'm getting my yuri dose from "Citrus" this season. At least the interaction with the stepsister was interesting in this episode.
I do have a weak spot for the short haired russian.
Never trust an american loli.
They could've made a passable anime, but instead they made this. It's literally just any old shitty battle royale shonen, but this time everyone's a loli.
The american is the shit disturber this show needed to become more entertaining. Which country appeared in MC's vision? Was that the UK or Germany? Going by hair >>785630 it seems like it was the UK.
Can we just take a minute to recognise how fucking huge her room is?
We got some tits and girl with most likely frostbitten feet will save the day.
Now that the drama is resolving it's not so bad, but we're probably gonna get another round of it for the finale.
>They finally get an actual OP
>The quality takes a nosedive.
I'm enjoying these ups and downs of quality.
Have a pair of tits for good measure.
It's all meta, the OP was representing her connection to the book. First it was complete potato, then it started to have some resemblance of a connection, and now that she finally made a contract and got into the mahou shoujo clothes there's a proper OP.
Germany totally looks like the accountant from Imouto Sae
I can't stick to this. I'm beginning to wonder if I even like anime anymore.
This is not exactly the highlight of this anime season, if anything it's barely scraping by as watchable. If you can't stick to Yuru Camp or Sorayori, then you might want to start questioning your tastes.
Indeed. The girls are cute, wonderfully cute thanks to Kantoku I want to reproduce with all the blondes at least 5 times per day , but main girl is so plain that it became her power. In fact shes is unbeatable. Everyone else is restricted to magic from their own story but this girl is writing her story as it goes so she can make up literally anything to win. Its great but disappointing since inevitably she will lose to someone for the character growth arc.
The climax of the battle between main girl and thief girl was just them talking and eventually showing magic while shouting at each other. I should probably lower expectations of battles with main girl involving any kind of physical activity.
Wouldn't be surprised if they were the same person. I still want Ashley to verbally abuse me.
That is another word
Shocking developments justify shocked expressions.
> thanks to Kantoku
Ah, so that's why. The eyes sometimes reminded me of One Room
This show needs more nudity.
God knows it isn't good for anything else.
>Wolf girl and vampire loli.
The Russians have good taste.
Russian team is clearly the best team. Baka Tatiana is so cute I want to cuddle her and rejuvenate her tainted origin.
>Feeding milk to someone who may be lactose intolerant
They are all monsters
You can't know if someone is lactose intolerant until you've fed them milk.
That's how you find out.
This show got fun again with this episode. I am glad.
So the Russian wish is to fix their bakas head?
If this show turned into nothing but the Russians doing Russian things, I'd be okay with that.
How do you watch it live over internet when AT-X air the show?
Russia is best team by far, I'd watch that too.
Didn't think Russia would be handled this way, everything went better than expected.
So here I am, Russian, scanning /a/ front page in search of a good thread, and I see someone discussing Russia and Russian team. What the fuck did the slant eyed fucks do to us this time? First Hetalia, then Golden Kamuy, and now this.
Узкоглазые ублюдки просто баттхёртят из за Курильских островов, не так ведь?
They were pretty much the best part of the show so far, I don't see what you have to complain about
The russian team was trying looney toon level of logic to get rid of the japanese team: supplying them with milk thinking they're lactose intolerant, trying to lock up someone in a basement room that, spending hours trying to clean it up and finally their plan failing because the room had free wifi.
How about a looney plan of burying a remotely detonated nuke on Kurile islands, giving it to Japan, waiting for them to settle in, and then blowing the fucking thing up?
See if they ever make us look silly ever again.
Russian team is bunch of lovable morons.
I want to breed with them all and produce an army of moralfag dorks.
>Losers have to be maids for the rest of the tournament
I cannot wait for America, Germany and England to lose. Russia probably has the most interesting and lovable team. Theyre all idiots but the other teams have this business-like feel where I think they would leave each other to die without second thought. The Russians feel like family. If they weren't idiots they would be a powerhouse team too.
I want to give her headpats, even if she is a bad person.
Why did this show get so good when the Russians showed up? Does this mean its going to become boring again now they are done?
Nice joke. They even managed to beat someone who can predict the future.
Of course they will lose against MC team in the end
These last two episodes were like 3 points above where the show was before. I sincerely hope they're not going to get all serious again, but they probably will.
Now it's hiatus either way; I guess it's a good thing that they care enough to not put out the rest of the anime as a complete mess.
So far the anime has consistently been quite funny when it was just being silly, and complete trash when it was trying to be serious. The other teams all seem like they've got sticks up their asses, so there probably won't be much humor there, the old hags sitting around a table bitching about being dried out downstairs don't seem to have much potential either. I was going to drop this before the Russians appeared, and I probably will now that they're gone, though I'll give it an episode. I doubt there are any more good things left to come.
What if headpats make her a good person
For those that wonder when the next episode will be out
>The official website for the currently airing Märchen Mädchen TV anime has announced that the broadcast for the ninth episode will be delayed until March 22 in order to improve the animation quality. The show's timeslot on March 8 and 15 will rebroadcast the anime's first two episodes. Broadcast information for episodes 11 and 12 will be announced at a later date.
>The anime, produced by Hoods Entertainment, began airing since January 11 and is an adaptation of the original plans drafted by Tomohiro Matsu prior to his death in 2016. StoryWorks writes the magic fantasy light novel featuring illustrations by Kantoku since February 2017. Three volumes were published so far, with the latest released on December 22 last year. The novel's Fest edition titled Mahou Shoujo-tachi no Zenjitsu-tan under Dash x Bunko imprint recently shipped on February 23.
>delayed until March 22 in order to improve the animation quality.
This is funny.
Either the final battles are spectacular or the sinking ship has finally caught fire.
If the final battles aren't fought completely naked, this show has not delivered on its promise; it hasn't accomplished the only thing that it is capable of accomplishing.
I don't understand. The animation wasn't gutter-tier. People who want better/fixed animation buy BDs. Why are they doing this to me?
They didn't even have enough time to find people review all the cuts before airing the episode for Ep7
Someone think Saaya Koike for Tojinomiko mobage looks like Hazuki doing part time job elsewhere
Animation drops when the studio fucks up its schedule. An anime schedule is tight as a loli pussy and as frail as a loli smile.
Stitching together pieces of old episodes for a recap episode or not broadcasting anything at all are the easiest ways of getting you schedule back on track.
But you will never be able to restore your loli's smile.
Glad to see the animation improved after 2 weeks
I laughed this entire episode.
No wonder they needed extra time to brush up the final episodes.
Christ almighty that was a disaster. It didn't even look like the same show from episode 1. Did Kantoku and half the animation team all quit? If I was an animation artist I would be embarrassed to be associated with this product.
I'm actually impressed. It must take some kind of talent to do this to a show that already had eight pretty decent episodes.
So what did this look like before they fixed it?
Do you really want to know? If they just put the VA track on the ED (looping) that would have been better than this episode.
Guys, I have some questions.
I just noticed her finger turned into a carrot.
> If I was an animation artist I would be embarrassed to be associated with this product.
To my knowledge multiple animation directors and artists refained from being named in the credits (deciding how you're credited for your work is a legal right in Nippon).
Was it just my video or did sometimes the mouths not even move when they talked? What's with the mismatched eyes?
I honestly couldn't decide if I wanted to laugh or cry the whole episode. It was SO bad. How do you fuck things up this badly? That one Garfield animation made in paint is 10x better than this steaming pile of ゴミ
This thread is making me wish I had picked up this show. If I understand this correctly, they took a break to improve the animation and it came back being QUALITY when it was decent before?
Just look through the screenshots and webms in this thread and enjoy the slow decline that turned into a cliff. Lets be honest, it can only go up from here. They won't start airing recaps right?
Ch in German isn’t like ch in English, all they have to do is try to say May-d-shin and it would be close enough. I don’t believe it is hard for nips to say any of that.
>They won't start airing recaps right?
Nah, they're not beatless They just aired a second recap episodethree episodes after the first one
Into the trash it goes.
I’m not fooling anyone, I’m watch this next
I actually really like Beatless besides the MC, Kouka's great. But yeah, too many recap episodes and I suppose it's better that they do recap then do hiatus + quality like Madchen here. Sage for off topic.
>Into the trash it goes.
You never know, sometimes recap episodes can be the best episode of the series.
I feel like they’re basically clip-show episodes, and since I rarely watch an anime as it’s being released it’s not like it actually helps me. But that’s just my opinion.
I think I know what happened. They used machine animation. It looked a lot like what you would get from
>the future is LN adaptations done entirely by AIs
They're already doing it for transition frames, which has deprived apprentices working for various circles and groups valuable experience in their drawings skills and it shows man. It shows.
Comment from Hazuki VA
I think it's more like they simply escaped from the production team
Rumors being that the episode was probably finished as it is before they created the break to fix later episode, which we can only hope it would be true, as another alternative theory is that they didn't have anything on their hand before the break and rushed it out in the mean time.
>you were born just in time to witness the rise and fall of an entire art form
I can't imagine what level of mismanagement it takes to reach this level of quality. Half the episode was at the point where they could've just hired random people off the street to draw the frames.
What's it say?
How much of a fuck up do you have to be to animate the wrong character? I can't even imagine what was going on in the studio for that to happen.
