Multiple new spin off manga announced. One is Slice of Life with Akane and Rikka, and the premise is that Akane is actually in love with Rikka.
Also, some new official art of Akane and Rikka getting married.

Let's put it this way. SSSS.Gridman is all about the small details. There are tons of really minor things, like all of the characters are themed after Transformers.

Another small detail is that the director said that the posters shown in one episode in the nurse's office were important. In that scene they show a LGBT poster twice.

I think it's one of the best anime from last year, although the first few episodes kinda tease at het that never actually happens beyond a one-sided crush (there was even a theory back then that Rikka was pregnant).
>>
>>2898580
Whatever side you're on, you've gotta agree only retards would fall for the "Rikka is pregnant" bullshit.
Teen pregnancy in an anime sequel to a superhero show for children? In anime, a medium where 99% of teenage casts are virgins and only get together at the very end (if ever)? Yeah, no, that was pretty fucking retarded.
>>
>>2898587
Yet still not as retarded as the "Rikka is Akane" theory.

"why you" is a colloquial way of saying "why are you". And Hass normally speaks in a lazy informal way.

It's kinda sad how Gridman isn't as popular in the west.
The sleep over voice drama things got like 50,000 watches on Chinese YouTube, and hundreds of comments.

In English it got like, 1000.

Kinda weird that a Trigger show didn't dominate, but I guess people were burnt out by Franxx, or turned off by the toku aspect, and it got overshadowed by goblin shit.

Tofu strikes again.
>>
>>2901584
It's a reference to Tatsuki's (Kemono Friends director) comment on how the fans would occasionally overanalyze the series. He likened it to giving someone a plate of tofu, and then the person you're serving it to says something like, "The whiteness of this tofu represents the anxiety of the modern era". When really, you were just serving them tofu.
>>
>>2901598
>So this tofu metaphor really doesn't seem to apply here.
It precisely applies to the comment in the post I linked.
>>
>>2901606
>when offical sources have already said eye colors are important.
Source on that, then?
Because as it stands, >>2901373 is stronger evidence that they were put in because they look nice.

And as for the other things you bring up...
>The novel the director wrote a year before Gridman was even announced as an anime had one page mention about an out of order water fountain at the school, and that same water water fountain showed up in the anime.
The director retaining a detail that he was fond of but that ultimately has no sway on the story is hardly what one would consider tofu.
>The OP lyrics basically telling the whole story.
Not at all uncommon.
>The ED lyrics mirroring the last line of the final voice drama.
Something post the series making a reference to the series is also not really tofu. It's just a callback.
>>
>>2901053
It's another ACK's fake translation.
This one is especially funny because the first sentence is almost a direct quote from the show(see the screenshot). It's impossible to translate it wrong yet he still managed to. Impressive.
>>
>>2901648
>Guess you can't read.
I can, actually. And was in fact only reading the image. I can see why you would think that he's only saying Rikka isn't a kaiju however, given the Anon in >>2901373 is giving a pretty shoddy translation. Appreciate the effort, though.

>ガッカリされるかもしれませんが、特に意味は込めていませんでした。
>this might disappoint you, but there really wasn't any meaning to it.
>ヒロイン的なキャラには全員差し色を入れたいと思っていて、青に映える綺麗な色合いを考えた結果です。
>I wanted to add an accent color to all of the main girls' eyes, and came up with that after trying to think of what would be a nice color that goes well with blue.

>>2901700
>Been posted in these threads multiple times before.
Oh good, I'll just wait for it to be posted again, then.

>Sure is odd how that's the one thing you ask for a source.
Again, only because a primary source for the opposing argument HAS been posted. And if you actually posted the source, then who knows, there may have been another misunderstanding due to a translation error, which would make the point moot.
>>
Well, goodbye, thread.
We should start using another name for these things, as I'm sure this samefagging shitposter has actually a bot that automatically warns him every time the word "gridman" or similars are mentioned in 4chan.

>>

who
>>
>>2918672
Kengo is one of the animators for the SSSS.Gridman anime. He's the one who drew this >>2918452 as well as a bunch of other Akane x Rikka stuff.

But that image is a reference to that new/soon to be released movie Tenki no Ko. The scene in that image is the same as a scene that happened between the male and female lead of Tenki no Ko (who are clearly love interests).

PV for the movie. Though, it's not yuri.

Not so much western fandoms, as it is a toxic cabal of mentally ill morons that have a manchild perspective on things. It's a good thing Gridman is about giant monsters and robots or else they'd infect like a disease over how it's wrong to get a boner over the yuri cause it's exploitation of girls but it's also wrong to not like the yuri cause it's offensive to gay or some shit, just all sorts of double think.

Can someone just like two girls doing gay things cause it's cute, not because it's some kinda blow against societal norms.

Nah. Rikka is just Akane's own self-insert, which she personified into the world which she created; creating a romanticized version of herself to be her own best friend (after all she does only love herself).
>>
>>2925610
Yeah. Akane even looks like Rikka in the real world, with the same uniform and everything. Rikka is most definitely her own self-insert, as you put it.
>>
>>2925610
That doesn't a lick of sense. Why would Akane make an idealised version of herself when she herself is already an idealised version of her real world self?

>(after all she does only love herself).
Is this the power of speedwatching?

>>2925613
>Akane even looks like Rikka in the real world
I don't see how the look alike,other than having black hair like literally all jap girls do, or how an uniform (you know, the thing that is supposed to look the same on every student, that's why it's called an uniform) means anything.

None of this jives with the story or its themes, particularly when taking in account the ED, which was confirmed to be important, and most likely shows Akane and Rikka going to school together in the real world.

It's astounding how subtle the 'real' story is, when the giant monsters and sentai heroes are really just a facade about a girl dealing with her mental health.

Yuta plays a very interesting role as whether or not he was a "romantic rival/love interest/representation" for Rikka and Akane if the subtle hints come out to be true. So I'm looking at 3.

1. Rikka, and Akane are real people outside of the digital world, although only Akane was actually in Gridman's world. Yuta is not real, And is Akane's insert protag to compensate for her lesbian attraction to Rikka

2. Akane is Rikka in the real world, and she has a selfcest feish. No one is real, but her

3. Everyone in the Gridman's world is based on real world counterparts, with only Akane again having been a part of it. Yuta is real, and Akane has a strange revenge fantasy that turns into acceptance over her love for Rikka.
>>
>>2925834
For one, we know Rikka is from the real world as well. Because Rikka's mother is a hyper agent.
We know that nearly everyone in the computer world is just people that are normal citizens of the computer world. The only people in the anime not from the computer world are Akane, Rikka, Anti, Anosillus II and Rikka's mother.

Akane didn't even know who Yuta was, which is why she kept trying to get Utsumi and Rikka to tell her about him. Akane can't actually make people, that was one of the major points of the story. All the people she killed are real people from the computer world, not just random things she made.
>>
>>2925867
That whole theory falls apart when Rikka has to stay behind in the computer world. She can't go with Akane.
>>
>>2925867
So calling herself a God was an over-exaggeration?

I know it's kinda hard to tell sometimes, the scene that stands out to me is when Akane puts her hand around Rikka and tells her she's a god, and she's forced to be her friend. Maybe it is an exaggeration, I'd certainly prefer it be her giving of power top vibes on wanting to dominate Rikka.

Obviously it's incredibly complicated. Doesn't help that she specifically says her Kaiju made Rikka, not to mention her confusion over who Yuta was, or is (I had assumed she made him subconsciously)
>>
>>2925875
Akane thinks she's a god because that's what Alexis is telling her. She doesn't really know any better. Like, she can't even fully control the world. When she kills someone, like not!Ritsu on the volleyball team, Akane has to move her desk out of the class room herself.

Akane thinks she's making people with her kaiju, but she's really not. Remember that line from when she's talking to Anti. "Oh, is that actually how I made you?" Which implies she didn't actually make Anti, he was just someone already from the computer world.
>>
>>2925869
Rikka didn't have to stay behind, she just doesn't know otherwise. Refer to the ED song, and specifically about the lines of "even if you don't remember". It's referring to Rikka's memories of Akane and herself in the real world. One of the magazine interviews told us that Akane and Rikka are childhood friends. We don't know Rikka's exact situation, or what's going on with her mother. So there's likely some reason Rikka has to stay in the computer world.

One of the show's animators drew "fan art" of Rikka going to the real world to see Akane.

Thank god. Franxx was shit, and why it is more popular among otaku than Gridman, I'll never know.

This is great because Gridman is such a legitimately underrated anime despite being made by Trigger. Hopefully Trigger will learn that yuri is the way to go.

Purely opinion, just gonna make the one post and not derail the thread:

I get not liking Franxx as a yuri fan, but like... Aside from nicely done chroegraphy in some of the hand to hand, Gridman was extremely bland. It's a throwback to its genre, and that's fine, but that also made is extremely formulaic and repetitive with a lackluster background plot for kaiju-robot battles. I don't think franxx was amazingly original, but it at least had some relatively unique themes, much more interesting plot, and a generally better cast of characters.

Having marathoned both basically one after the other, and going into them with a slightly negative view of Franxx and slightly positive view of Gridman (I was under the impression Ikuno died and was already a bit sick of seeing 02 fanart everywhere), I still definitely enjoyed Franxx more.

I came out of Franxx with "that finale ending was kinda dumb and cliche but it was a fun ride and interesting setting/story, 02 was less overrated than I expected, and I'm glad ikuno got a cute gf."

But then came out of Gridman with "well that was... alright." It was surprisingly generic, played down the actually interesting god-angle in favor of dumb hero crap, full of characters who just like didn't do what they should have been doing, and ultimately left me wishing I'd just youtubed an AMV for the two girls to get all of their scenes without spending the couple hours watching something so tepid.

Akane was top tier, but there just wasn't enough of her and Rikka interacting to make up for an otherwise uninteresting show.

For clarification I meant my post was "purely opinion", although obviously, your post is as well.

>>2943427
Man, you must have missed most of the cool stuff in gridman, if you really think it's so bland. The themes of escapism in gridman, and the development, particularly of Akane and Rikka, were far better than the "lol heterosexuality is the only thing that can save humanity" themes on Franxx, and at LEAST Gridman didn't pull a "IT WAS ALIENS ALL LONG" plotwist in the last fifth of the show.
>>
>>2943892
>development, particularly of Akane
Again, I liked Akane, a lot, but she just wasn't enough to carry the entire show
>and Rikka
spent most of the series just kinda standing around doing nothing. that was kinda the problem, Akane/Rikka is the actually interesting plot part of the show, even ignoring the yuri, and up until episode 11 it's basically just Rikka being unable to get her shit together and do anything of value. And then when she finally does, 11 episodes in, it's immediately interrupted by ayylmao guy so that it switches right back to Gridmantime all the time. She was easily the most frustrating part of the show.

>The theme of escapism in gridman
Was okay, sure. But again I think this is an issue of bias. Franxx has the same escapism theme in it, but reframed towards society instead of the individual, and done (imo) more interestingly through the entire concept of the "adults" and the inner cities surviving in permanent bliss on the deaths of children.

Yes, a lot of the show is about het and families being of vital importance. It's also about the dangers of oligarchy, censorship and faith in unchecked innovation, what it means to be human (not just through 02, but the other kids, nines, and two teachers as well), the importance of individuality, and obviously environmentalism.

I think
>heterosexuality is the only thing that can save humanity
completely ignores the greater subtleties of Franxx. I get why you came away with that message, especially as a /u/fan. It's easy to just focus on the baby plot and flashy het sex metaphors, but remember:
>02, humanity's hero, only exists because of outright cloning
>the strongest squad in the show is made of up androgynes who pilot homosexually
and most importantly:
>the only reason the hets are able to live and repopulate the planet is because they are saved by a lesbian. Hiro and 02 give humanity a chance to continue, Ikuno is the one who cures them of lava cancer and secures humanity's future.

God, I love Usamin so much. Though, it looks like that was something someone commissioned her to draw.

That said, I also love that snowy love feeling.
