The lesbian golfers are back in town for another season!
It's really been nine months. Finally.Also, preorder their shitty game, it comes out June 15th: https://www.nintendo.com/store/products/birdie-wing-golf-girls-story-switch/
Not even a minute in the episode and Aoi is already thirsty for Eve's reward.
>>3924041Damn, beated me to it.
>eve's dad is aoi's dadWelp guess they are sister then
>>3924094Eve is the real daughter and Aoi is some random orphan they took in I feel.
Is this show worth watching if I think golf is a stupid, quite possibly evil sport?
>>3924094I don't see the problem here
Yet another episode where Eve solves everything with her bullets.I hate how Aoi is treated like a side character when she's meant to be a main character.
>>3924148Aoi didn't just randomly job, something's going on with her physical condition. We already know from previews she's going to get focus with Himekawa next match anyway, and eventually she'll have doubts about her identity. She's not getting sidelined.
Amura is Aoi's dad
>>3924759It's not entirely implausible if we follow the theory that Kazuhiko is only Eve's dad and not also Aoi's. Amuro has known her since she was very little, has asked Seira to let him keep training her despite being about to die and the way he reacted to Aoi collapsing might imply she has the same health issue as him. I doubt they're going to introduce a yet unseen character as Aoi's father if it's not Kazuhiko, so it's either irrelevant or someone we already know.
>>3924765Yeah. I really doubt Kazuhiko is father of anyone but Eve's. After all only she 'inherited' his special skills, whereas Aoi just seems to be very well trained non-superhuman with strong mental fortitude. And for what's its worth I really don't want Aoi and Eve to be related.
>>3924148>Yet another episode where Eve solves everything with her bullets.That's literally the whole series as far as golfing goes, you should be used to it know.Aoi is just "normal" good, Eve is the genius talent.
>>3924770They all have super-powers, and Aoi's one is she's super-gay
Which yuri Gundam is going to have a kiss first, the one with golf or the one with the tanuki?Or will they be on the same episode?Or will they both be COWARDS?
>>3925306Stop comparing this to gundam, it's subtext, your expectations are unreasonable.
>>3925307Aoi saying she likes Eve and wants a kiss from her is subtext?
>>3925306>>3925311I feel Birdie might get the first kiss, but it won't be even half as siginificant than the Gwitch one, whenever it happens.
>>3925306>>3925328>subtext show #25973>kissBest you could hope for is a plausible deniability kiss like in Hina Logi, but even that is a rare exception.Just enjoy this for what it is.
Oh it's just a troll
>>3925306the fact most "yuri" shows are subtext is insane, this is why western animation is better
>>3926221Western animatiion is on the level of genderbend shit: Stuff that doesn't belong here but is tolerated by shit modsAnd I'll take fun subtext shows from Japan like Nanoha, Sympho or Birdie Wing over the west's ugly boring shit. Fuck off: The rules say yuri is of japanese origin. Your shit is non-yuri until they change the rules
Don't go down the blood-related sisters route. Just go switched at birth. I know where we are headed
Man, I wish all subtext shows were like this.
I can`t believe she lose to a gundplafat!
Things are opening up big time!
>>3928868(Half-)sister theory likely BTFO.
The two third wheels stick together.
>>3928904Seeing them start off on such bad terms and gradually get more and more friendly throughout the tournament has been fun.
If they go the sisters route and don't leave it at least ambiguous that they're gonna fuck, I'm going to be so fucking mad.The subtext has been so fucking strong in this show that I was legit getting baited into believing. Crossing my fingers that that there's some angle I'm missing that doesn't make them half sisters. Maybe Amuro is actually Aoi's dad? He also has the weird head thing going on?
I'm glad Aoi did things this episode.I'm not sure what the point of this twist was, or why Aoi needed to have golf AIDS.Is there anybody who would have been disappointed if this was just Saki but with golf without all this bizarre drama?
>>3928964Aoi has the same disease as Amuro, she never managed to replicate Kazuhiko's swing like Eve does but instantly replicates Amuro's while noting it's much more suited to her body, wonders why he has the same model club as her and Seira straight-up says that's the golf she fell in love with. I'd say they're laying it on a little thick.
>>3928969The way that Seira has acted in all her scenes though, has been as though she believes that Aoi is her and Kazuhiko's daughter. In that case, she must've cheated on him but still thought that it was Kazuhiko's child? Otherwise they've been doing some weird unreliable narrator shit for no reason.
IS THAT ANOTHER FUCKING MADLAX REFERENCE I SEE?
>>3928970Actually, the only time Seira straight-up says Aoi has Kazuhiko's blood is when she's speaking to Amane in a flashback in episode 2. Then she just says Aoi is her and Kazuhiko's treasure while by herself in episode 5. There are no scenes where she explicitly thinks or mentions that Aoi is related to Kazuhiko by blood with nobody else around and she tells Date in episode 12 and her secretary in episode 14 that Aoi going pro and becoming the greatest golfer is the ambition of the Amawashi family. It's possible Kazuhiko was brought in due to his pedigree and the recognition his name would give Aoi despite not actually being her father, and it's even possible Seira's father might not know about this.
>>3926234Every time they mention Nafrece, I can't help but laugh.Just think about it, while we're watching Eve and Aoi gaying it up while playing something as benign as golf, somewhere in their world, there's an unnamed island where gay girls are kissing each other to turn into weapons and beating each other up.But I guess that explains why everyone has superpowers in this show
>>3928978If Eve is the daughter of Eleanor Burton, does that mean the Kazuhiko is actually Margaret? Where's Madlax and Limelda's daughter?
Wow, did they ever mention the name of Aoi's mother before this? If so, I'm a fucking idiot for not noticing Amuro + Sayla, also does this mean that Leo is actually Seira's brother?
>>3929097Yeah, her name has been known from the start.
>>3929097Does that mean the new girl with Leo is Lalah Sune?
>>3928879 >Sink this putt in and I'll sink these two later
>>3924724I think so too, no cope.- The way he's been protective of Aoi in the last two episodes- Coaches her on the "swing he's always known was dormant within her"- How he shares a look at Aoi's mother in this latest ep. like he's telling her not to interrupt Aoi as she's having the time of her life golfing with Eve- How Aoi seems to suffer from the same affliction he has; like itt's hereditary
>>3929187>Only two? No way...
>>3928978Birdie Wing is actually a prequel, and dyke golf magic is how scientists discovered how to harness the power of lesbianism.
>>3929097>>3928980>>3929147What the fuck are you even talking about?Are the character names some sort of reference?If so, reference to what?
>>3929539Hint: it's the franchise Lily buys a lot of plastic models of.
>>3929539Some of it is gundam references because the writer of Birdie Wing also worked on gundam.Nafrece is location in both Madlax and Valkyrie Drive Mermaid, two series which he wrote. Additionally, Burton is the last name of one of the main characters of Madlax, and Eleanor the first name.
Make's sense Kaoruko's "in the zone" would be symbolized by iris flowers. > In Japan, a common iris definition includes the idea of purifying evil energies and protecting those who wear it.
With this and WfM, I'm hoping for an influx of more interracial yuri content in the future. Not in a weird way, just like the color contrast.
>>3929539I was lost too lol Holy shit. So this whole thing is a stealth shared universe? I'm down
>>3930793Witch from Mercury, the new Gundam show.
Kill la Kill you in golf.
Whew, what an episode.
>>3933524At least the sister bullshit got debunked in way most anons predicted.
>they arent related Dropped
>>3933534more correctly, waifuhetfags were the ones who wanted that, just like any other yuri couple.
>>3933590>sup faggots my name is eve and I hate every single one of you.
So they're sisters or what?
>When you realize the whole point of the series is so Aoi and Eve have their own science offspring together to be the ultimate golf player
>>3933606>Since there is no Adam, it's Aoi and Eve
>>3933606>their respective fathers had to sacrifice their happiness for the sake of the Amawashi family and couldn't raise them openly, or at all in Eve's case>they met by some crazy coincidence>Aoi's mother is trying to keep them apart just like her father did to her and Amuro>they will have to overcome this obstacle to finally be together the way both their respective parents couldn'tThis is some star-crossed lovers shit.
Background lesbians too.
I'm surprised at how quickly they let us in on the full picture. Now I'm left wondering how long they'll keep Aoi he dark. Seems like Eve already has a pretty good inkling on who Aoi's father is.
>>3933912But that's not hot.
THEY'RE NOT SISTERS HOLY SHIT I REPEAT THEY'RE NOT BLOOD SISTERS
>>3933907Gundam kinda did the same thing, with many foreshadowed developments happening all at once at the beginning of the new cour instead of spread out. Probably they want the mystery out of the way to make room for more golf, and it also makes it seem like anything could happen in the next 8 episodes.
>>3934011Like how S1 had a whole mafia golfing arc in its middle 8 episodes?
This episode was nuts holy shit.
When are they gonna make out?
>>3934170Unfortunately it might lead into an arc where they're separated, though I guess they can keep calling each other and even meeting in VR unless Seira goes full control freak on Aoi.
>>3934175I suspect this will be an opportunity for Eve to learn about the other half of her family and going by the hints - such as the implications to her mother's family - will be a key to clearing her from the mafia while Aoi starts defying her family.In before its revealed Leo is Eve's uncle.
I know some people were fans of the ANN reviews for the first cour, so I'd like to point out the one for the first three episodes of this cour is out: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/review/birdie-wing-golf-girls-story/episodes-14-16/.197361
>>3934929They get it.“Golf has changed. It's no longer about mafia turf wars, virtual reality, or Gunpla. It's an endless series of proxy tournaments fought by bastard children and 48-inch drivers. Golf—and its consumption of life—has become a well-oiled machine. Golf has changed. ID-tagged golfers carrying ID-tagged golf clubs use ID-tagged golf balls with Pac-Man printed on them. Golf nanomachines inside their bodies enhance and regulate their abilities. Golf genetic control. Golf information control. Golf emotion control. Golf battlefield control. Golf has changed. The age of the Blue Bullet has become the age of the Rainbow Bullet—all in the name of killing people…in golf. She who controls the fairway controls history. Golf…has changed.”
I predict a short arc wherein Aoi loses her motivation for golf and her smile. She later learns from the 2 Nafreece girls that Eve's in trouble with the mafia.Aoi goes to her mom for help and reveals to her that her Eve is now her reason for playing golf. They duel in golf, Aoi regains her Innocent Tyrant attitude and "pierces" through her mom with her golf, feelings and a new Amuro/Seira swing.Her mom is then compelled to use her Amawashi company's resources to somehow rescue Eve from the mafia. They both then confront Aoi's Granddad to admit her in the pro circuit despite her controversial past.
>>3935072And Aoi's granddad will be revealed to be involved in the Yakuza and begins, what's on the surface a corporate acquisition of Catherine's company by Athena. But in reality, it's a ruthless international organized crime war to wipe out the Nafrece mafia so his granddaughter can munch carpet in peace.
>>3935129When does Eve use her Rainbow Bullet to kill someone but nailing them in the temple?
>>3935170Sequel hook for season 3. It's a homage to the 'you murder' scene from gundam.
>>3935186Aoi would only get even more turned on by Eve literally killing someone in golf.
>>3935072>>3935129This show is so ridiculous that this doesn't even sound like it would be far off from the real plot
Didn’t Eve act a bit too cold while Aoi was at her lowest?
>>3936037She told Aoi exactly what was necessary, i.e. heavily implied Aoi's mother was lying to her so she'd go ask for the truth. I think Eve's actions may appear harsh due to the dramatic framing of the scene with rain and lightning, but Aoi herself didn't seem to take any issue with how she acted or what she told her, and the first thing she does after settling things with her mom is to speak fondly of Eve with a very telling look on her face. Yeah, Eve could've waited for Aoi to get back inside from the rooftop, but her going with Aoi to confront Seira would've just put the latter on the spot even more and compelled her to keep lying like she did, and Eve reminding Aoi of their match made it so Aoi didn't feel lost. Of course, it will get more complicated since Seira has no intention of letting that match happen.
>>3937552Eve's being a ladykiller agian
>>3937554whoops wrong screenshot
>>3937554shame snake lady seems shacked up with that dude
>>3937627Eve doesn't strike me as the kind to cuddle after sex. This makes sense.
Time for Eve to put down the fake hag!
Maybe it's wishful thinking nut does anyone feel they're laying too much groundwork to wrap things up now? We've two women's opens, Eve's past, Aoi's condition, Leo's protégé, the unnamed woman in the intro, etc. Next week seems Aoi focused. So not much progress there.
>>3941365If there are still eight episodes left, they can do it. They could even roll some things into one like Aisha being Eve's opponent at the Europe Women's Open. Aoi's condition and her past will definitely go along her own pro debut tournament.
Such passion for a cuckquean.
She has certainly done so before.
>>3941376This pan reminded me of 90s anime.
This show is so fucking dumb. I fucking love it so much.
>>3929539Birdie Wing is full of references to the original Gundam show from the seventies. Amuro's VA played the hero also called Amuro, while Leo's VA played his rival Char. Theirs is one of the great homoerotic anime rivalries. Char's sister Sayla (Seira) is on the same side as Amuro. They sometimes flirt and there's implications they were planned to be a couple, but it never happens in any of the anime. In the novelization they are together and Sayla gets pregnant, but Amuro dies in battle.Also, Birdie Wing's Amuro has a golf club called RX, while the original Gundam's designation is RX-78-2.
>>3945429>they sometimes flirtLiterally when
>>3945448I guess it'd be more accurate to call it affectionate teasing on Sayla's part, like when she calls him unhip in one of the final episodes.
>>3945449>You promised, Aoi! We'll play another match right after this!
>>3945449Man you really had your hetgoggles on tight
>>3945503Anon had a newtype flash and saw Amuro and Seira from Birdie Wing while watching 0079.
>>3945449I’m not sure that’s the right way to golf.
>>3946794Looks like a hole in one to me.
>>3947212She would go that far.
>>3947255Eve can kiss her cervix and womb goodbye.
>>3947359I think Eve can kiss all her organs all the way up to her brain goodbye.
>>3947367If it's anal it might simply go all the way through.
Pretty cold of Eve to not even call Aoi.
>>3951111She told her the time for niceties is over and wants to meet again as rivals, but you could see she was still thinking about her during the underground match.
Damn, Amane. You're going to make Aoi too wet!
We're gonna need an AoixEvexIchinaxAmane OT4 at this point.
>>3951860>not even daisuki but aishiteruAoi is shameless.
>>3951872This is what happens when Eve denies her the kisses she needs.
Aoi just falls for everyone, doesn't she
>>3952234sooner or later she's gonna bang her future stepmom as well
>>3951860I can't wait for the Aoi/Eve doujins where they bring their caddies to the bedroom for advice.
Why I feel like season finale gonna end with a cliffhanger, Like Eve actually got stabbed by Anri(Rose’s ex goon) before getting a chance to play with Aoi
>>3955757Well that'd certainly be one way to get a third season.
>>3956001how would you even stretch this story out for a third season
>>3957605They raise all the poor kids to be golfers together
This is also what she said in bed last night.
Blasted with gay
>>3958122Another lesbian is welcomed into the fold.
Can't believe they made an anime about Mario Golf
>>3958122How will Aoi react when she finds out Eve got Ichina pregnant?
>>3962787>"Do you hate me?"
Over the rainbow, indeed
>>3963609Lots of gay this episode? Looking forward to it
>>3963631Whoa, that's sexual harassment
>>3963636It's okay when it's between caddie and player.
Aoi and Eve will meet again next episode surely. Aoi demands her kisses.
I didn't think I'd enjoy an anime about golf this much
>>3963839Too bad they mostly left the crazy mafia golf behind. If only Eve had dragged Aoi down with her like her mom feared.
>>3963839There doesn't seem to be very many anime focused on golf, although it's understandable why. I went looking around for other recent shows and only found a short called Sorairo Utility, which couldn't be more different from Birdie Wing.
