File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (245.56 KB,1920x1080)


Would somebody mind explaining how some random shota isekai comedy managed to secure a good studio with a high budget that is competing with some of the better anime this season in entertainment value? Seriously it's got great comedic timing, and a setting that values its magic and breaking it in so many creative ways while not feeling like the author's personal wankfest over themself. Lloyd's quite the mischievous and charming creature, he sort of sucks you in and has you wondering what kind of bs he'll pull out of his ass next. It's more comedic than serious though so I'm more laughing with it than with something like Mahouka where it's played completely straight.

Maybe it's related to giant stuff like Chainsaw Man getting horrible budgets


I don't think it had a horrible budget, just bad direction.


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (429.08 KB,1920x1080)

There are some slight differences between Lloyd and other narou MCs that seem to be going a long way in setting him apart.

He's doing what he does not for the sake of power itself, to take it easy, because of some conflict going on, or any autopilot adventuring, he's consciously pursuing sorcery purely to hone his craft. He flatly rejects taking up any office simply because he's perfectly aware it'd give him less free time. He ends up being much more like Cid/Shadow, in the sense that he's more or less doing it for fun and epicness first and foremost.
And in terms of his powering up itself, the topical stories that aren't a completely generic JRPG usually have the player build up strength through some effectively parallel system, like iunno fukken strongest farmer, whatever the gimmick is, however in Dainanaoji the MC's interest is the magic as it exists for everyone else so that makes it easier for him to learn from others as it keeps happening. The systems it shows you are consistent and have enough depth for it to be entertaining, he has to try to do things correctly like learning qi breathing and the whole segment going over the enchantment process and the alchemy it included.

These aren't exactly unique, by no means, but it's definitely better than usual and coupled with a cute unhinged shota, the comedy, the interspersed chibi and the great animation it's surprisingly the one I'm enjoying the most.


File:[EMBER] Dainanaoji - 01.mk….jpg (209.44 KB,1920x1080)

It seems alright, but the style is kind of ugly to me. I might try it again sometime, but it's hard for me to get into things if I can't enjoy what I'm looking at. The animation quality is high from what I've seen, but the style...


You don't like chibis?


I like chibis a lot. I don't like the ones in this


I like it more than Shadow because there's a realistic chance that his mascot could end up becoming able to overcome the protogonist's OPness


Anonymous, I...


Did you watch the episode...


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (272.33 KB,1920x1080)


look at that fatard


File:I Was Reincarnated as the ….png (Spoiler Image,1.45 MB,2588x3684)

Did you read the manga?


if you're saying that him eating the demon was meaningless then idk, let me know if this is a disapointment like shadow


File:[SubsPlease] Kono Subarash….jpg (379.12 KB,1920x1080)

I assume someone directly addressing a spoiler image is spoiling stuff so I edited that post


File:1512015019426.png (212.25 KB,520x445)

If you thought Eminence of all things was a disappointment, why are you watching this? For the hypothetical stakes?


because it's got good animation and the magic is interesting unlike an insulting show, such as shadow.


^Tried bashing his head against a rock and only ended up in a hospital.


>an insulting show
I don't follow.


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (2.25 MB,1922x1981)

Returning to this... what should be understood about Dainanaoji, and this is made truly obvious starting with episode 2, is that as it happens in plenty of other power fantasies its little magic systems exist not in service of the world, but of Lloyd. That they display more details than usual only furthers this. It's not, iunno, Witch Hat Atelier or Hunter x Hunter where multiple people can make use of their systems in different and relevant ways, in this case the goal of anything that is introduced is for Lloyd to incorporate it. Enchanting appears and is explained so that you can appreciate why this little kid is such a monster, but you'll never see anyone else doing something worthwhile with it. Everything exists only insofar as it can prove once more how great Lloyd is, which can be seen for example in how so many of the powerups that characters receive across the story are gifts bestowed by his grace alone. Side characters will do some cool things as well, but it is the seventh prince who sits at the center of the universe.
This is overwhelmingly a bad thing, and I hope in the future you'll be able to recognize it, although here it's executed well enough that I enjoyed it.


>This is overwhelmingly a bad thing, and I hope in the future you'll be able to recognize it
what are you talking about. Of course it's bad story telling, but the spells are interesting as spells, not as character tools


Spells are interesting if they have rules and boundaries. These do not exist for Lloyd, they are just gestures. Everyone constantly goes "OH MY GOD HOW'S HE DOING THAT, IT SHOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE!" from the very first episode, he does as he pleases.


I never said it had a good magic system and worldbuilding. I said the magic characters do is cool.


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (265.79 KB,1920x1080)

So what's the problem with Eminence, again?


I don't like shows that glorify psychopats


.......unlike Dainanaoji?


now that's an actual debate we can have...

he doesn't do things that are evil and to harm others, he's a Randian type of entrepeneur who wants to do the best things for himself


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (268.83 KB,1920x1080)

Lloyd genuinely does not care about people, their stories or anything that isn't magic, multiple times he's contrasted in this with normal folks and their normal emotional reactions, whereas he appears bored or even asleep. Later he'll be shown to have been banned from going to the church because he kept breaking vases on purpose, hoping that they would hit him with some divine magic because combat is his preferred method of learning and that's what he consistently baits others into. There's one instance where he's clearly the aggravator against someone else at a place he seriously shouldn't be in, and it's all for the sake of obtaining more magic. I would just call him a benevolent psychopath.


Cid is not a psychopath. He's just an asshole.


File:1436218104016.jpg (128.82 KB,1920x1080)

Lloyd might be strong, but he'd still be mere cannon fodder before the all mighty Onii-sama.


Ki has further limits because Goku could beat Lloyd

Allow me to reiterate: oh shit this kid is fucking insane.


what i wouldn't do to get josou seme'd by this brat

File:roll credits.webm (Spoiler Image,8.94 MB,854x480)

I wonder if the director considered ending the episode immediately after this neck-snap of a scene


Spoiler well watched


Giant f*** off lasers so cool!


File:[SubsPlease] Dainanaoji - ….jpg (Spoiler Image,315.24 KB,1920x1080)

Awwww shiet I didn't realize how sudden this was in the manga!
Hope you're ready for some danmaku 'cause shit's about to get real.


lookin' like a page outta some ero-manga


File:[Piyoko] Himitsu no AiPri ….jpg (150.74 KB,1920x1080)

These videos uploaded about this show make him seem like a total sociopath. Seems good that an isekai is a bit different from usual, but I can't really enjoy protags I can't root for


That's not the protagonist in the videos above


Oh, that's good then.


heh, he does look like he could be the MC of an anime huh


yeah but he's cute


I really enjoy biting this shab


I assumed it was the typical isekai timeskip thing


sounds like you need to watch 7th prince


It just looks too weird to me. Some sort of uncanny valley thing that disturbs my soul


File:I Was Reincarnated as the ….png (826.5 KB,2000x2871)

it's NOT an isekai ok it doesn't even have videogame stats
pic unrelated i just wanted to post it


File:I Was Reincarnated as the ….jpg (817.08 KB,960x1378)

oh and a good deal of pages look rather simple but that's because they were colored in the webmanga and then made monochrome in the tankoubons


Why is everything "isekai" to you?
Surely you don't really think that timeskips are an isekai-exclusive concept?


File:Go! Go! Loser Ranger! - S0….jpg (235.32 KB,1920x1080)

Please don't do the condescending "Surely you" question format against me if you want to engage in a conversation.
Where did I say that everything is an isekai? You're painting me with a broad brush because you think I'm painting with a broad brush.
My assumption is someone dying and getting reborn in a different land is isekai, but maybe this one doesn't qualify? I'm not insulting the show or anything, I was under the assumption that it counted. I can't remember the specifics of the show because I saw the first episode like two months ago now.
In shows like this the protag starting off as a kid and then time skipping ahead until they're a young adult is very common so I was under the assumption that a guy that looked similar to the protag but older was him. Again, I am not attacking the show.


native isekai lover here


Timeskips are a common feature across most genres. To identify them with isekai is weird.

And I did not say that you attacked the show. I responded to you designating a common trope as an isekai thing. That's where the "everything" comes from. If timeskips are isekai, then what else might be considered isekai? Swords? Trench-coats? Magic?


well, most anime with swords in them ARE isekai-likes


File:[Chihiro] Maou no Ore ga D….jpg (293.32 KB,1920x1080)

>then what else might be considered isekai?
I think you're confused on why I called it an isekai. Dying and reincarnating in a new body in a new land while keeping your old memories and personality is why I called it an isekai.


>it's NOT an isekai ok it doesn't even have videogame stats
orthogonal concept to isekai, the videogame stats genre is called litRPG (literary RPG). a lot of isekais are also litRPGs granted


>why I called it an isekai.
I was not talking about the anime though. I was referring to your addressing of the timeskip.


Well if you want to split hairs, litRPG can be sub-categorized into Gamelit, and that's when they show the numbers in the book. Like it becomes part of the narrative that "Oh wow MC-kun hit that monster for 9999+ damage" or some shit. Like showing stackblocks in the book itself.
