(this seems like something that works better in manga form)
I think it works better. Reading a manga with no dialog is 1000 times more boring than watching an anime with no dialog
finally, an anime for people who say that they wont watch subbed anime because they "dont want to read while watching a TV show"
I hope Commie picks this up.
This kind of reminds me of Tawawa: sexy yet comfy.
I like it.
Them not saying anything but still moving their mouths is creepy.
I like it. But I like silent movies, so YMMV.
It's kind of weird how they make noises like grunting and humming but don't talk.>>29729
The jaunty piano music reminds me of a silent movie, too.

This. This is what's off. Methinks it'd work better with no voice acting at all, or at least with less of it, since the way it's done it feels like they're trying to compensate for the lack of dialogue. Come next week, I'll try watching it with no sound first and see how that goes.
>I'll try watching it with no sound
but you need the fun music and sound effects
Try muting it and playing the Maple Leaf Rag while you watch.
I'm fucking doing this. That'll solve the lack of fun music; if lack of SFX is a problem, I can try adding intertitles. The only loose end left is what music I'll play if a shady guy in a moustache and a cape shows up next episode.
You could play Odeon by Ernesto Nazareth if someone suspicious shows up.
So I did watch episode 4 to the tune of Maple Leaf Rag and the result was way better than I expected. I did a quick and dirty job of mixing it in for your convenience, so give it a shot:https://0x0.st/zb6w.mp4
By the way, I've been meaning to say this for weeks: the ED sounds a lot like the Vividred Operation OP.
That was wonderful, this is the only way I'm watching from now on.
Very nice. I've been watching it to Satch Boogie by Joe Satriani.
I actually just threw out Maple Leaf Rag at random; I'm pleasantly surprised it works that well.

The ideal family unit. The ecchi stuff is pretty good but the comedy bits are hit and miss.
more miss than hit

You know, it's easy to laugh at this mangled map of Europe, but the fact remains that it can be recognised as such and Romania is pretty accurately placed. I don't know how many Eurofags could do as much, let alone draw a map of Asia and place, say, Laos or Sri Lanka on it. JKs really put us to shame.
It's really not great, to be honest
Is that Dalmatia sticking out like a second Italy or something?It's charming in a dumb brat sort of way though.

WAIT. WAIT. FUCK.
So, it's not a silent anime - it's just that these three girls never talk out loud among themselves. Why? Is one of them deaf or mute? Then why don't they learn sign language, or carry paper strips to write senryuu on? Shit, this is a Kumamiko-level fucked-up ending.
Oh fuck no you reminded me that exists
I'm so fucking mad again
What the fuck was the message there supposed to even be? Why was the girl getting basically PTSD presented as a good thing?
It's this obsession the Elevens have with giving anime adaptations endings, which, when the source material isn't finished, forces them to shit together something that simply maintains the state of affairs but feels like an ending. Of course, when you pick as your final arc one where the MC comes closer to overcoming her faults, the way to maintain the status quo is to push her back into the hole for good, and pour some concrete for good measure.
It's just so weird though, because - now I don't know if it's some sort of selective memory on my part or if it's actually a trend, but it feels like lately anime have been given more and more AND THE STORY CONTINUES PLS BUY MY MANGA/LN sorts of endings. Maybe it's the higher volume of LN adaptions compared to pre-Haruhi, where part of the aim is to sell LN volumes in the first place.
So it feels weird that they'd force a seriously unsatisfying ending when the trend has been against adding an ending at all.
