Why did they give an edgy "trying to shut herself off from the outside world" character the most tryhard weeb meme headphones ever? I'd rather see a product placement for Beats by Dre if that's even still a thing. Horrid character design (not just her but especially her).

I didn't watch the original like everyone and their mother so I'm looking forward to giving a chance to it. Oh and watching pre-2010 anime is just shit taste in so many levels. The 4:3 ratio and sub-1080p visual quality is a few reasons that comes to mind.

Yeah that's about right. Although I did see a couple posts on Tumblr not liking it but one of them was because the show sexualized Hidomi in her dream because you can see her ass and tits and the dude wearing a skirt just has his underwear out. I believe they summed it up as a show "written by pedos for pedos and greenlit by more pedos who did this instead of funding something original".

The weird thing is, they are so much more boring and subdued in Progressive with their scene, but then they go over the top with shit that seems so out of place. There was this frenetic energy that was ever present in the original where when a scene like Haruko hitting Naota on her vespa interrupts a tense exchange, it doesn't feel out of place. In Progressive, the weirdest thing up to this point outside of a dream sequence has been her turning into some cat ghost, and that's not even literally happening. All of a sudden some bitch comes out in a car and bounces it in the air to hit a girl in the face with it. Fuck, even the scene in the original wasn't that ridiculous, you can survive being hit by a scooter. Just the tonal shift is so out of place and forced. The show just lacks energy.

Personally, I liked it. Even more than I liked Alternative, and I honestly liked Alternative quite a bit.
It simply felt more like FLCL than Alt. A;though it wasn't quite the same as the original, of course. There were a lot of scenes (namely the one where Ide is talking with his classmates) where the show would have benefited greatly from some more creative choices in facial animation, or when the direction overall could have been more frenetic.

However, the episode was still pretty well done and pretty hype in some places. I more or less like all of the new characters, and I really enjoyed how Haruko made her appearance at the end.
The show requires you to try to separate it from the original OVA (which you never really can do entirely) and take it as more of its own work, but if you can do that, it's pretty gud so far.
And yes, I've seen the Youtube fight clip, and yes it looks horrible, but let's ignore that for now.

I'm not disappointed because I didn't expect anything good to come of it but I'd call it as a stand alone show mediocre at best, when tied to the original it's pretty bad. The CGI was decent and the new characters are cute but It lacks a lot of the style and flair the original had in it's visuals and just feels over all less polished. The writing felt very on the nose with it's pandering. quoting lines in the first episode of a sequel isn't really endearing. If it wasn't FLCL I'd be dropping it here.

Let's be honest, though. There was only ever three good Toonami dubs over the past 20 years:

Gundam Wing, G Gundam and Dragon Ball Z.

Between Relena begging to be killed like an autistic inbred aristocratic faglord and Goku actually being voiced by a constipated man in burgerland, MY LOVE OF DUBBED ANIME WAS SUSTAINED BY UNBRIDLED ENJOYMENT. THEIR SHITTY MEMES LED ME TO KEEP WATCHING.

But while the G Gundam dub has aged well because of its already tongue in cheek nature, the shitty original DBZ music (HURR DURR FUCK A DRAGON) and legitimately cringeworthy voice acting in Wing (relative to the sub) have become complete turd in retrospect.

The fact is, Toonami dubs weren't really that great after all, and were just the gateway to finding a means to actually watch "the good stuff."

FLCL wasn't even on the list of memorable dubs because it was an overly unremarkable series with an overly unremarkable dub that didn't WOW like MD Geist or kick off the Great Waifu Wars like Tenchi, and whose plot was incredibly convoluted and "artistic."

It only gained fame among the mainstream normie crowd of my/our time, much in the same way Gurren Lagann and Geass gets jerked over by everyone except the actual genre fandom over at /m/.

That's why they brought back a new money grab slash sequel with a heavy female cast and a scathing depiction of fat guys, all to get as much dosh from female consumers as they possibly can just by recycling an old meme-tier IP.

It's more cynical than inspired, but tasteless normies and Meo-/a/ will eat this shit up with a smile.

I'll just see it as another IGPX or Space Dandy rather than the second coming of the Coyote Ragtime Show.

Just because Alternative was aired, as a joke, with the Japanese VO, does not mean either has had a Japanese TV release. If you don't want to listen to the dub then wait 4+ months. Then it will get released in Japanese.

Or just keep turning this into dubs versus subs because you're retarded.

I can't even properly judge how good it was because old FLCL's first episode set the bar too high. That's all I could think about.

I really liked it. It looks and feels like FLCL and I'm actually kinda intrigued by the story and all the rotten flesh metaphors. Some mightsay that it just tries too hard to be FLCL, but it doesn't. Everything looks pretty organic and, sure, we
get a bunch of references, but they really kinds grounds the show into FLCL's world.

The weakest part seems to be the animation, but in all honesty, I can tolerate that. It's fun enough to watch, I've already known I shouldn't expect the OVA's visual quality from this one.

I’ve been drinking so I’m going to ramble abit I never got the subs vs dubs thing especially when the distribution rights usually leads to changes to sell the product.
I mean the sub script is still just a localization of the Japanese script making subs still unfaithful to the raw source. My example of this being Episode 651 of Detective Conan where the mystery is solved by the fact the FBI misunderstood a Japanese word that was from a more western Japan dialect, the subs couldn’t revel that until Heiji/Sera explained the whole Japanese language finesse thing and the differences between West and East Japanese dialect making it impossible for someone who doesn't speak the language be as involved in the show. Also towards the end during a banter moment Conan is making fun of the West Japanese way of speaking and is clearly saying something but the subs are along the lines of “da how da you da doing da today.”
Now the argument could be made that the dub script is too far from being faithful to the raw material, due to a multitude of reasons. Anime becoming slowly more main stream, the lack of risk taking, and not as much experimenting older dubs had with actors also you can say they take dubbing not as seriously as they once did who knows. Like the Dragon Maid example shows the dub script is drastically different from the sub script but would you enjoy the dub if it followed the sub script exactly or would it then become just a criticism of the actors themselves. What would be the reaction if the scripts be reversed I mean I don’t speak Japanese so it’s hard to gauge if an actor is good Japanese seem to think some actors are awful but they seem fine to me but I don’t speak the language but I can tell when a English speaking actor is bad because I understand what’s going on.

I never understood the premise of sub-only. I'll watch both subs and dubs, and don't typically have a preference unless it's moeshit like Is The Order a Rabbit. Otherwise it's all the same.

Im not sure how they are going to handle it. With the whole emphasis on sexuality itll probably be something where she has to confront her feelings after seeing his dick or something similar. I hope Ide doesnt end up as like co-MC though which is sort of what it looks like could happen.

I hope it's done well though, the first episode was rather blunt with it's themes. But it's a new season and they want to appeal to a wide audience, so I can forgive that. Sexuality is a big part of puberty and adolescence etc, but it's not everything. Hopefully it loses that explanatory feel after the first episode.

I'm not feeling Progressive so much. The intro and the bit with the porn was OTT and the pacing felt rushed. It seems to be trying to replicate the tone of the original too hard with the freaky bodily stuff. The horror of her body rotting seems to be too big a contrast to the rest of what is going on. Also I'm not keen on them bringing back older characters.

On the other hand I think Alternative is attempting its own thing while still tapping into the spirit of the original, and is much more interesting for it.

In either case neither episode rivals the first episode of the original on any level, but we should bear in mind that both seasons are being released as movies in Japan so we should probably look at them as a whole before we judge.

it was better than the other one, however the other one is complete utter trash, so that's not much of an accomplishment.
They just don't understand what made FLCL what it is.

Look at pic related, in the original when Naota was run over, it was funny because it was just so over the top and out of nowhere, that you immediately understand that you shouldn't take everything so serious in that anime. But here the mother is realistically shocked that her daughter is probably dying in front of her eyes.

No one wants to see that shit in an anime like FLCL.
And don't get me started with "It's progressive/alternative, it's a different genre on purpose" bullshit, it's a sequel/spinoff to FLCL, it should have the same feeling.

that scene is also comedic BECAUSE of that reaction and her reaction later (she says the lady is really cool despite running over her daughter). not that FLCL has ever been actually funny but whatever. I don't understand how tone deaf and emotionally retarded you'd have to be not to see the dark humour of that reaction, it's not serious at all

Ide is also the MC in my mind. He seems like the polar opposite of Hidomi, which is also a bad thing. Both are placing a mask over themselves that need to be ripped off. She'll probably blush or something when she sees the dick, thereby activating her NO channel. He also has a NO burst down the line, due to his head glowing with the same intense pink as Hidomi. He might be the robot we saw in the first trailer back in 2017.

I hope they don't go down the yuri route because it's just a bad idea and goes against the themes of FLCL. Atomsk is the bad end, regardless of his form.

>but your criticism and opinions are dumb.
The only thing that doesn't make any sense is you. Completely misinterpreting the scenes in the new one and thinking a sequel/spinoff shouldn't be similar to the original. That's just absurd. If you want to make something different, great, go ahead, but don't drag the name of another show in it then. You got payed to make a sequel to FLCL, so do a sequel, not just use names and one or two characters from the original, but change everything else. You will just piss of the original fans then.

And this is why i said you that you seem to not like the original, because you wouldn't say those things if you were

no because the original's first episode is so overwhelmingly good that even something that is worse than it by a vast margin can still be pretty good.

If you're honestly telling me that the MC's mother's reaction in that scene isn't used for darkly comic purposes and that scene is instead totally serious then you honestly have a brain that is unable to recognize tone and humour. I'm sorry to have to tell you this.
>thinking a sequel/spinoff shouldn't be similar to the original
It should use the same motifs and world yes, but outside of that its only obligation is to try and execute what it is trying to do well and generally just be good. Alternative is doing its own thing pretty well (nothing staggeringly good but its charming at least), while Progressive is a bit too busy and confused. at least so far.
>And this is why i said you that you seem to not like the original, because you wouldn't say those things if you were
I am a massive fan of the original, so much so that I would not describe myself as a 'fan' of anything else in pop culture. maybe the band talk talk but that's it.

the reason I am a fan of the original is because it's very very good. repeating the same exact shit for a sequel wouldn't be good. it would be lazy. this applies to reusing older characters, especially when they were used perfectly and do not need to be expanded on, as is the case with FLCL.

Not commenting on the quality of Darling in the FranXX but just hearing the dialog from the second director special episodes really puts into perspective why Dubbed anime should always be treated as an inferior or at the very least different entity (like the ghost stories dub) than its native language counterpart. When a series comes together from scratch in its native language you have a director, guiding the VAs to play the part that fits their character within the context of every aspect of the show while it's being put together. And specifically in Japan VAs are treated as high profile individuals and their talent is way above that of anybody working in an overseas sub setting. When you watch a dub you are experiencing voice work done by a director who is doing their best to interpret the show as he sees fit with the translated script he has, with VAs that were not cast to fit the role they are playing and who are nowhere near as talented (most of the time) as the VAs who originally voiced the characters. If you give a shit about experiencing the works of art you are investing your time into, it does not make sense to experience them in any other way then subbed.

Also anybody that claims to not want to watch "old anime" is no different than those chimped out anti-vaxxers. Denying shit that is good for you because of an unfounded belief that it's not. This new FLCL has proven to be a really great newpleb filter, they just got sucked right out of the fuckjng woodwork here.

Your opinion is shit, your favorite anime is shit, and your waifu is a whore. You aren't allowed to comment on the subject until you've spent a weeks worth of hours comparing first episodes of series by different subgroups to decide which TL you're going to use for the entire show. Do you want to risk memes and trolls for potential quality with gg and commie, or is it past their prime when you're risking for no gain. Is utw an option? Mazui, Underwater, FFF, WhyNot? Is Eclipse and Bullet speed subs dead? Heaven forbid there's a new group you've never heard of who came out of thin air because some TL really liked the source material and wanted to do his best to do it justice so that we could appreciate it as much as he does. Do you want to wait a few weeks for Nanashi to get the better raws they want and get their subs through QC for an official release or do you want to find the leaked pre-QC subs and mux them with the raws that still have the time of day in the top left corner so you can finish watching Eureka Seven?

It was depressing to watch the sequel about a series about growing up come out nearly two decades later due to rabid fan nostalgia, and, as far as this episode goes, largely treading the same ground. The references to decay and everyone in the class except Ide and Hidomi freaking out about Haruko's reveal almost feels like a self-awareness of how pitiful it all seems.

I legitimately still think TL notes are the best way to handle ambiguous translation problems. The nuance is being a good enough translator that you don't cop out into TL notes until they're absolutely necessary; and even then in most cases you make it an asterisks* TL note that's addressed at the end of the episode to prevent intrusion.
If I understand the joke already, then the translation is enough and I can ignore the TL notes. If I don't understand the joke, the TL notes provide me the information I need and give me the ability to pick up on future similar jokes. When you do the alternative of being very liberal and changing the joke, not only do you ruin it for people who would have originally gotten it, you also disable those who wanted to understand the joke even if they wouldn't have gotten it from being able to learn it.
The end goal is obviously to be so immersed in the culture that can enjoy the medium without subs from learning the language itself, but if you care about subs vs subs or subs vs dubs then you're obviously not there yet (because learning languages takes effort and time).
Nowadays with the ease of crunchroll and the standardization via horriblesubs, there are no choices a viewer can make. There is choice between Shit A: Too literal and Shit B: Too liberal. There is only Shit C: Take it or learn Japanese.

I went in with low expectations since I know it's not gonna be as good as the original, so I was able to sit down and enjoy it. I liked it, and I feel like Progressive started MUCH stronger than Alternative.

I liked the callbacks to the original FLCL and the animation was great. Nothing mind blowing like the original, but it was fun and enjoyable. More than anything, Progressive actually felt like FLCL. Alternative just felt way too disconnected and felt like a completely different anime that was just sprinkled with FLCL references

Anyway, Progressive started good, Alternative started bad. Looking forward to the next episode.

I find it weird that Hidomi has a horn. I want to think the creators just missed the point but the girl in Alternative has a flower as opposed to a horn. I think it has something to do with her emotionlessness and lack of sexual desire as shown by the porn scene.

Honestly after watching it I'm at least a little more hopeful of it, it's better than the first episode of Alternative, at least.

There was enough interesting visuals and potential characters in the show that I'll keep watching, and despite being nowhere near as good looking as the original FLCL, it had parts that really looked good in terms of direction and animation.

Music, like Alternative, was a bit of a miss though, there were a few songs, and maybe they'll grow on me, but the sound isn't even close to the loudness it needs to be at, and the general lyric-less background music is super bland and forgettable, though I'm hoping that's intentional to show how boring Hidomi's life/perspective is.

Only other thing is that I wish to god it was at least simulcasted in japanese as well as english, these VA's aren't the worst I've seen but they're still bad/boring enough that I really don't want to watch the whole series with them.

the western dubbing world has only around 20 at most VA's which they use for literally every show and they all have no range and absolutely suck at fitting their characters.
