Looks great! Already in my PTW and definitely planning to watch it! All those troll votes who gave it low scores should definitely be deleted before it airs, since it's obviously not legitimated votes when this looks like such a solid production and they gave the anime scores before it even aired what the....!!!!

From Wit Studio with 23 episodes/2 cours for Summer & Fall 2020. then still there is no confirmation for studio of Attack on Titan Season 4 on Fall 2020 too. Even Kyoji Asano, Character Designer and Chief Animation Director (CAD) of Attack on Titan become CAD of this series.

Idk, kinda want to watch it, but at the same time all original anime I saw lately were filled with “woke” cringy elements. Hope that’s not the case, but hey I didn’t expect that from Hoshiai no Sora and it just cringed me out of existence

Guess I’ll give it a try anyway just to be sure
Fëanor did nothing wrong

Looks interesting, but why is it rated like a 3 haha? Salty SNK fans because WIT is doing this instead perhaps?

So now that this is confirmed can y'all please move it as off from the summer 2019 chart? Should've never been there in the first place but now it can finally be moved.

Also, delete those stupid "scores" that are on it just to bring the show down as low as possible. Like seriously people spamming 1s and 2s on it is dumb why would you let them

Wow, good trailer. The art style reminds me of The Eccentric Family a little bit, though not the mood obviously.

Edit: Ah, that's why. Same Art director. Nice.

Thats still a very stupid problem MAL simply allows to exist for now. Its embarrassing to think that MAL still hasnt fixed it and yet asks for money for their subscriptions. Another anime is Fall 2019 chart suffers the same problem, its cringy to look at.

Ooooooooh another pretentious take on the western cultures from the maker of 91 Days! Boy I cannot wait to see just how off target they will portray their characters this time. Japanese inserts in anything but the name and the setting.

But I will judge it when it is on.

Please tell me they didn't sacrifice season 4 of AOT for this. Please. This looks like it's there to pander to Western SJW critics. It gives off some very similar vibes from the trailer

As if Attack on Titan didnt pander to the west? Lol

Anyways this looks way better than any season of AOT. Glad they decided to drop that dead weight and move on to more ambitious projects. Keeping the A team hostage for a long running is a mistake. Now if only Bones can drop Boku no Hero.

This looks really fun and colorful, we especially need plenty more original animes out here especially ones that are willing to go 2 cour. I really enjoyed 91 days so the director being the same guy has me more interested.

Also getting upset that the studio is doing something thats not AOT is a really dumb reason to get upset at the show thats not even out.

This has me even more excited then, Eccentric Family is downright gorgeous and has some of the best use of color in the medium.

I'll look forward to it, since it's rare nowadays, when creators add to anime some extra details, which may (or may not) help the show shine out a little bit more. It's not like modern anime sucks or something, it just majority of anime creators didn't try to leave the safety zone.
Maybe it's nothing more, than beating of the air, but at least i'm looking forward to how they portay diffirent countries in anime.
SoK 4 won't run anywhere. It was already announced, so i don't see the reasons to worry about.

Oh no, it's happening in modern-day USA and other places outside of Japan? The horror! Must be SJW propaganda, then, can't be anything else like just a fun story that happens outside of Japan.

Seriously guys, are you from the future or something to know what it is exactly? It's just a one minute PV. And come on, it can't hurt to have a few anime from time to time that's not in Japan. Jesus Christ, this forum can be pathetic sometimes.

Also, yeah, I know we have this conversation when Violet Evergarden was placed in Summer 2017 when it was airing in Winter 2018, but this is fucking dumb that you put it in Summer 2019 just because the first two episodes were at Anime Expo. It ruins its chance of hype because it's not going to be on the Summer 2020 page till the anime starts, and it's pretty annoying. Also, that score bombing really needs a fix.

Yeah, the art in that show was fantastic. It's mainly the backgrounds that look similar, but they still have their own distinct flair here. It almost looks even more colorful in this one, not as pastel maybe?

The colors in this one definitely look alot more warm and saturated, but to be fair eccentric family also got to those levels to depending on the scenes. I think its just more the series was generally pretty nostalgic and softly melancholy so the colors generally match the tone of the moment. A very underappreciated aspect of a series like that and something that could go a very long way for this series if it finds similar success.

Fuck I wish more people would watch that series, its one of the most heartwarming series out there. I actually think i prefer it a bit to the authors(of the source not the anime itself) other work tatami galaxy

I recently watched the anime "Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai", Yes, I'm late. But, I thought after having noted it (9), that I would like the same kind but with a little brother and a big sister. Can someone tell me the name of such an anime? :wesmart: Its for a friend .

So angry that the staff got bored of AoT and decided to do something else that he immediately jumps to ~le SJW boogeyman just because the show is set in America and theres one (1) black character in it.

And I'm the troll. You're a funny guy.

LMAO Care to explain to me exactly how Great Pretenders is SJW? There's a single PV out, and the only hate it's getting is from assblasted AoT fans who are unironically review bombing it like a bunch of manchildren because some AoT staff members are attached to it.

And again, I'm the troll. My sides.

I went till october of 2019 and I found that -
Only 4 accounts that have given it a low rating who have given AoT a higher rating and around 30-40 bot accounts who have given every AoT season and Great Pretender a 1.

Do some research before stating something, otherwise, you look like an idiot.

The you realize that staff and animators is more important than the studio itself. Like how OPM season 1 was mostly animated by freelance animators instead of Madhouse's one, even Saitama vs Boros was animated by Yutaka Nakamura, Bones's animator

It's not pulling my interest, but I like the atmosphere built from the trailer. Hope the show's soundtrack is like the trailer.
Also, why the low rating? I highly doubt most of the people who rated it even watched the first episode which premiered at a specific event. Seriously, everything I'm seeing sounds like total misinformation or typical petty BS so I'd appreciate to hear some reasoning, if you don't mind.
