This show is now doing explosive hit in Japan

Why /a/ dont like it
>>
It's a dumb kid's show.
>>
>>180436612
It's nostalgiabait for nips so it's doing well in japan. But for most people on /a/ there's nothing to feel nostalgia for.
>>
>>180436612
I liked it a lot for the first 3 or so episodes. Now it's just boring and already starts to drag. The supposed mystery revelation is going to be extremely underwhelming and you can tell. It was a mistake to reveal Akanes involvement this early.

But I do

A rare case where Japan doesn't have shit taste. /a/ not liking it is to be expected though, /a/'s general opinion on shows hasn't been trustworthy since 2010.
>>
>>180436612
I like it a lot.
>>
It's Trigger's best work, right next to Luluco.
>>
It's made by Trigger but it's not a trainwreck full of melodrama or love triangles so /a/ doesn't pay much attention to it. It's objectively better than everything else airing this season except for Thunderbolt Fantasy.
>>
>>180436612
But I do like it. I do think you also need to be into or have some understanding of tokusatsu stuff to really enjoy it though

Obviously since toku is Japanese, the home country quite likes it a lot
>>
>>180436782
/a/ as a representative of the West didn't really care about Kemono Friends either, despite it being a hundred gajillion times more popular than Gridman.
>>
>>180436852
>but it's not a trainwreck full of melodrama or love triangles
This is actually important distinction. A Trigger show without shitty melodrama=nothing to shitpost about. The only thing to shitpost is the fact that it is a toku anime, which just comes down to personal taste.

>>180436727

But it'd be completely evident otherwise? Akane being petty as fuck is one of the funniest things in the show.

Why would it be a mistake when she is just this show's equivalent of the exact same character from the original show? That wasn't supposed to be a mystery at all

But Akane is what makes the show for me.
She is hilarious.

Other part of the show is not bad but rather generic.

I have actually no idea why this anime is even supposed to be good. All I see /a/ talking about is Rikkas thighs and the other sluts boobs. Ah, and there are kaijus, I guess. So, is it the story, animation, great fight scenes, comedy?

In most of the beach episode of moestuff,main girl cannot wear a bikini at all and wear an ugly one pieced swimsuit instead.Like Blend s,GJbu,Soraumi,Comic girls,lucky star,Toradora,Yuruyuri,haganai,locodol,last period,Inou battle,Island and more.

At least Gridman has stacey female MC who can wear a bikini. While Zero two is a coward protagonist who cannot wear a bikini at all in the beach episode while ichigo can wear it.

Not only is Gridman not mecha, the only mecha Japan "eats up" these days is UC Gundam. Mecha's in a giant downward trend there

because it's been a long time since I've seen a girl like rikka in anime. The way she acts, her voice, it's all so fucking natural it's unreal. Akane is still a nice girl though, albeit batshit insane
Also thighs
>>
>>180438584
But unlike other generic moestuff protagonists,Rikka is a Protagonist of moestuff who can wear a bikini.
>>
>>180438573
She is a Zagara main in heroes.
>>
>>180438584
Yuta wants to be with Rikka, that's enough to root for them because Yuta is the selfless hero of the whole thing who deserves to be happy once Alexis is done with.
Unless he's Gridman himself and will just happily go back to space adventures of course.

You are over exaggerating.
She is just another "JK" character which is an overused archtype at this point because of how popular they have become in the last few years.

there are literally nothing memorable about her other than the thigh.

If he was selfish in his love affairs he would at the very least try to open up or interact with her more, but he is afraid of making a move.
Meanwhile he rushes to defend the city without a second though.

Puberty

I don't want to play by your rule since I am sure every examples I made is just going to get rebutted by "they are not similar at all!"
But you know exactly what kind of character I am talking about.
The "JKish" type of character that tries hard to feel like a realistic JK

Some common trait of them (not necessary but most of them have it)
>long dark hair in natural colour
>trendy
>surrounded by female friends
>hands in pocket
>often seen playing with their phone

>Name literally 5 in anime
Other than the obvious Shibuya Rin who is literally the exact same character as Rikka
All the girls from Sorayori are all JKish

Many character from the enjo kosai rank also fit into this archtype

>>180441376
There's only been one episode with any sort of fanservice or pandering. The Kaiju fights are far more interesting. There's way worse waifushit airing this season too but they're not selling as well as this.

You get up to 4 tokusatsu programs from Japan specifically every year at different intervals, two of which are inconsistently distributed (Garo and Ultraman) and the other two varying in quality massively (Kamen Rider and Super Sentai). Anything else is one-off experimentation that rarely succeeds, like Sh15uya, Gouraigan, or the upcoming Gallas. Chinese tokusatsu is rarely seen outside of China, Korea gave up on a tokusatsu franchise one year in, and everywhere else is super low-budget tripe from SEAmonkeys.

The general change of pace from those 4 is pretty pleasing to some people. Same reason people liked SamFlam.

>make thicc girl
>no panty shots or nudity

What is wrong with modern anime
>>
>>180447824
It's too early to tell, but 12 episodes means that no episode is really filler plus studios seem to run into more production issues with 2 cour or turn into a complete mess in the second half due to poor planning
>>
>>180447900
I think every episode has been very good so far but episode 4 and 5 both had the weakest direction so far. However, judging by the staff list and the synopsis for episode 6, Contact, I would say the direction will be excellent.
>>
>>180448002
I just hope this success means we may get some ovas or a movie. Also Amemiya been given more freedom and making similar shows would be fun.
I wouldn't like a cash grab season 2 though.
>>
>>180447824
If it maintains popularity long enough, we'll get a second cour based on either Gridman Sigma or Grid Knight. Pray for the former, since the latter will be actual isekai.
>>
>>180448000
There's so much fanservice everywhere these days, it's actually more fun to watch without nudity.
>>
>>180447824
I'd say wait and see. It's too early with Gridman, as we only have 5 episodes so far. Trigger could still very well fuck up.

Also some shows are without a doubt absolutely better with only 12 episodes.

FranXX would have been 100% better if it was only 12 episodes long instead of dragging out for 2 cour and giving us literally 6 filler episodes in a row
>>
>>180448112
Fanservice hardly even exists nowadays. Have you seen 90s anime? Even kids anime had nudity back then

Reminder the show's going to end with Gridman and Yuta fighting so hard they shatter the fake world around them and fight Alexis in "Reality" via a live-action toku battle.

Tsuburaya did not make a TV-quality presentation suit for some random press conference whilst casually comparing it to what their actual stage suits look like. SSSS.Gridman will return to its tokusatsu roots.

Gridman isn't mecha, it's /m/. Ironic weebs can into mecha (See Gurren Lagann), but they can't into /m/. They can't understand it. It embarrasses and angers them to be reminded that all their favorite anime take inspiration or were outright derived from rubber suit monster shows for kids. They can't handle it, it infuriates every single one.

Not how it works, retard. The show has no tension, nothing to talk about, barely anything worth speculating over. The characters are extremely bland on top of that. The fight got worse as well and there's no actual tension because there barely seems to be any actual tradeoff for Yutas powers etc. We are 5 episodes in and all we have are some implied memoryloss and an abstract show of someone getting impailed. There's nothing particularly interesting about it as of right now.

Nobody is saying that they knew each other "barely". They didn't spend all their time together like they are doing now.

If it actually turns out that Rikka and Yuta were a couple then this show completely jumped the shark. If two people were in a romantic relationship then how can Rikka behave like they are barely friends? I seriously hope they don't go this route.
>>
>>180451286
They look so happy together.

They obviously weren't a couple. But they had some sort of unexplained interactions Yuta himself wonders about. He literally had a flashback of her saying that he sucks if he fakes memory loss when he says this

Yuta and Rikka is even more crackship than Akane and Rikka. It is quite obvious the attraction Yuta feels for her is shallow and temporary

Anti is more likely Grid Knight than Sigma. The plotline however is explicitly Gridman F (Or possibly a sequel to Gridman F), right down to character dynamics and the villain leading "Five demon generals." There's a whole plotline related to Sigma we don't know much about beyond it being a product of Sigma turning to the side of good.

You must understand, anon. Ironic weebs will do everything in their power to try and get a foothold into a show, and a fixation on a romance subplot instead of literally everything else is the easiest way to do so. They don't give a shit about anything other than just asinine regurgitation of pixiv fanart of cute girls that they don't really care about beyond being able to tickle their pickle to them. That's why they start these dumb shitposting arguments trying to justify only caring about the two lead girls instead of the actual intrigue building up in the background.
>>
>>180452175
You mean a huge-ass pause she did before answering him? Yes.
There's also the issue of Gridman being literally bound to her house. Maybe Yuta has planted some sort of backup on the Junk in case he dies, that's why he was rolled back.

Akane was in love with Yuuta, but she's a beta shitter so she never told him. In the meantime, he fell in love with Akane's best friend, Rikka.
Then, Akane got kaiju making powers and somehow fucked everything up so much that Yuuta lost his memories completely (everyone else just forgot about the kaiju rampage). This was all part of her plan - she wanted Yuuta to forget his love for Rikka.
However, she's still too beta to tell him how she feels.

Yuta loves Rikka.
Rikka has an unexplained background with Yuta she is not willing to talk about and shows him mixed signals between ignoring him and being concerned about his well being.
Utsumi likes Akane.
Akane hates everyone and everything.
That's all we know and i'm fairly sure only Yuta will get actual romantic development with the main girl

It is doing great in Japan due to its catering to the 30+ demography. All those references to old robot shows, transformers, evangelion etc. those are things that people who are in their 30s grew up with. And that delicious JK Rikka is basically the most popular archetype of these age-bracket anyway, while younger people prefer their dumb moe-blobs "and dont like mecha" (since they grew up with Naruto, Bleach, One Piss etc i.e. nu-anime of the post mecha/post golden age era).

/a/ these days is full of newfags and underaged shits. Which is why /a/ hates it.
>>
>>180456501
Sadly not even this anime can provide something so god-tier.
Just romance Futaba in P5, almost the same character and the same VA.
>>
I, honestly, feel that it's really fun. Not in the xD cute grills doing qt stuffz kind of gay fun, but the adventurous and kind of mysterious fun.
The energetic opening also gets me.
Anyways my comment isn't that relevant here since I'm an /m/fag and tokufag but whatever. I can kind of see why /a/ would hate it, it's by Trigger and it's gotten pretty popular but they also suck BnHA's and Black Clover's dicks so I don't know.

Basically this.

Pic related, this doujin artist basically says that he is getting old (probably 30s now) and this show reminds him of the golden age. Also, thick JKs with thighs are universally liked by people that age, who oggle them on the subway all day.

It's like he's a whole new person.
>>
>>180457177
That's an interesting question. Rikka isn't a person to hide something or lie without a reason. Especially when Yuuta's suffering from his memory loss and would be grateful for any info about himself. Rikka can't just stay and do nothing, something stops her.
>>
Do we know whether or not Yuta visited their shop before?
Gridman somehow ended up being inside the Junk and from what we've seen, Yuta needs to be physically close to the machine to get sucked into the virtual world.
>>
>>180457904
He was found outside the shop by Rikka so either he did or was probably about to.
>>
>>180458027
That's the other thing, who gave Yuta Rikka's address? Namiko and Hass would probably do it for the shit and giggles but they didn't know about they meeting until Namiko saw them talking after Yuta was hit with the amnesia.
>>
>>180458160
Gridman was probably calling.
>>
>>180458160
I don't think it had anything to do with the address or someone giving it to him. He was probably drawn to it by Gridman being there. Unless it was Alexis and Rikka is somehow connected to the villain.

>>180458160
So:

I think this one is a stretch. Rika says that she and Yuta have talked twice: One day in the classroom and the day he got hit by the amnesia. There is definitely something going on there, but I don't think Yuta went to Rikka's house in any other occasion.

>>180436612
I'll be honest here. The only shows that I get excited about and actively look forward to this season are Gridman, Thunderbolt and Zombieland (for now, it's been threatened with a drop). I've dropped almost everything else 3 episodes in. I guess it's okay to dislike certain things but most of the "complaints" about this show are obvious shitposts or made by complete newfags/ironic weebs.

this. shounen is cancer.
>>
>>180459220
I don't know if I'm right, but the sadness in her voice when she said she couldn't tell him was quite interesting. I think it was because she felt guilty about encouraging him to put his life on the line for her and her friends while she stood back and watched. She's worried about him but knows that no one else can stop people dying.
>>
>>180459304
Other way around works too if she started developing feelings to him and now feels like shit about what she did.
>>
>>180458385
>>180459061
Rikka didn't "refused" to talk to Yuta.
She didn't want to ask him for help because she feels like it is selfish to ask him to put himself in danger to defend the city for the sake of her friends.

This whole issue get resolved at the end of episode when she finally have the courage to thank him for what he did.

All this Yuta and Rikka relationship talks bored me

I honestly couldn't care anymore because it is just going to something cliche like >>180452513 where Yuta confess to Rikka before losing his memory.
It doesn't even feel properly integrate into the story.
It's just something that Trigger shove into the show because they want some romance element to appeal to the Franxx crowds.
>>
>>180459555
I don't think they can afford 48 hours of Gridman downtime.
>>
>>180459779
So was Rikka and Utsumi lying to him then about them not really being friends? I don't see how it is looking like the forgotten childhood friend in Franxx or Kiznaiver. Nothing is even remotely hinting at that.
>>
>>180459779
>It doesn't even feel properly integrate into the story.
The very first win was only possible because Rikka has encouraged him and right now he is in serious danger of possible identity problems and will need all moral support he can get.
I mean, before they've explicitly showed that Yuta develops feelings for her i would've argued about romance in this show whatsoever but now i doubt it won't lead anywhere.

Along the way when Rikka finds out what Akane is doing, she will still believe Akane is not evil and just being manipulated and will cause some internal conflict same with Utsumi
>>
>>180463391
Don't worry yuta still has the ssss.oy squad that are far more useful than those 2

But I do like it. It's my runner up for AOTS after Irozuku.

Rikka*

It kind of looks like smoke kicked up from a giant monster attack and the display cases are the buildings.

The VAs confirmed that there is definitely something going on between Rikka and Akane. Though, they said all they can say at this point is "it's really good".

Just a lot of armor on what is explicitly not a robot, my dude. Is pic related a mecha as well? The only actual mecha in Gridman are God Zenon and Dyna Dragon, one of whom may not even appear in the show.
>>
>>180466150
They're straight, anon.
>>
>>180466858
Not according to the VAs.
>>
>>180466909
According to the show, don't be deluded and stop seeing yuribait everywhere.
>>
>>180467033
The show doesn't say that either.
>>
>>180466463
It's a digital alien not a mecha.
>>
>>180467045
Then take off the yuri goggles.
>>
>>180467047
But physical aliens are mecha or not?
>>
>>180467172
Not a robot. It's a living being.

potayto potahto, this is just arguing semantics
my point is that it has nothing unique in it to justify its popularity
>>
>>180467267
>muh uniqueness
Rarely ever is anything truly unique. The show is fun autist.
>>
>>180467267
Except it's a passion project reusing a lost script/plotline and they're building a neat intrigue plot around just how much of it is an adaptation and how much of it is a reinterpretation or sequel. The fact you think it's a mecha just proves you're an ironic weeb and the show's not for you, fuck off.
>>
>>180467101
Don't have any on.
>>
>>180467354
You clearly do, since you see things that don't exist. Better save them for the handful of yuribait airing this season
>>
>>180467403
Nah.
>>
>>180436852
The shitposting is about the girls.
>>
>>180467442
Yeh, the vampire one for example.

Imagine having such low standards that you see moving images and are automatically entertained regardless of its quality.

>>180467331
Regardless of it being a passion project, adaption, sequel, or whatever, it's still bland and predictable.
>>
>>180467470
That series is shit.
It's also not yuri bait either.
You might have better luck functioning in reality if you could understand simple words.
>>
>>180467502
>I only enjoy deep, mature unique anime for people with refined tastes like myself
Ok bud.
>>
>>180467502
>it's still bland and predictable.
Feel free to "predict" what'll happen in the next 3 episodes so that way when you're wrong, you can be added to another cringe compilation and mocked across the board.
>>
>>180467532
Considering it's trying to imitate Kirara Sols, it's bait.
