I remember back in school there were several attempts where some kid tried to introduce us to a new card game and it was always really annoying. We all just preferred playing with regular cards. These "new" games are never as good as the classics.
I don't like mild
Gotta be spicy have some kick

sorry, this girl only goes from "mild" to "bear tranquilizer"
Regular cards suck. We used to steal playing cards from the school that they used to teach us math and pretended those were magic cards.
whatever makes you think she goes nopan?
only goes to show how bad my memory has gotten
I used to hang out at the card shop a lot in middle school. Mostly we played Pokémon, but one cool game I remember was called Lunch Money. The object of the game was to beat up the other players and rob them of their lunch money. The cards were things like "pipe" and "baseball bat."
that's not mild
Girl reminds me of that side character that had a twin brother in sansha san'you so I'm giving this a chance!
I'm really happy they play real games in this show. I hadn't heard of Marrakech and it turns out it's a fairly recent game. Three players is too many to play Advanced Squad Leader and Panzergruppe Guderian but I hope they try World in Flames or something!
With three players they could play Triumph and Tragedy.
She really looks like a nice lady.

This feels like a 00s anime. There's something about the designs that makes everyone so adorable, I think the eyes might be a little bigger, or there's a little more hair on the top of their heads. Execution is simple but effective and the moral lessons are telegraphed but still nicely executed, like they acknowledge the audience knows, but still put them forth without pretense. After two episodes ending with Miki looking at the sunset with a hopeful look, I was expecting it to happen every episode just for that extra nostalgia point.
Okay sountrack, really sets the mood. I like the one that plays whenever Midori explains the game's rules.
It's a yasashii sekai anime.
The bold color and shading and thick lines is kinda late-00s but the character designs themselves aren't really much different from the norm other than maybe slightly flashier hairstyles. The manga has been running since 2013 though. I think art direction in anime is probably more divers than it's ever been now so it's kind of hard to pinpoint a kind of period visual style the closer you get to today. I really like how expressive all the characters are, especially their eyes.
The tone of the anime itself is certainly more innocent and much less self-aware than you usually see in most contemporary moeshit though. That said though there's always a balance to be had in hobby anime between the focus on the hobby and the focus on the characters and I'd prefer the focus to be harder on the hobby, but I haven't read the manga so I don't know if it's just establishing the characters right ow or if there'll be characters of the day or if it gets more hardcore later or whatever.
Everyone is dressed for comfort but they still put a little bit of effort into looking cute (except Maki-chan who looks cool), and that only makes them cuter. I like Midori's outfit especially.>>32932>there's always a balance to be had in hobby anime between the focus on the hobby and the focus on the characters and I'd prefer the focus to be harder on the hobby
No, they're not going to spend three years playing a dungeons and dragons game.
loool, no need to kick em while they're down.
I wasn't. D&D games can take that long and while the idea of seeing them progress through high school and watch as the game affects their growth and vice-versa is an interesting premise, I'd rather saikoro club continue with the relaxed atmosphere of showcasing and playing a variety of board games for the same effect.
That sounds like a show I'd love to watch, but I agree it shouldn't be this show.
Please don't imply rpgs are in the same league as European board and card games. I don't even consider them the same hobby. I just would enjoy more spotlight on the games, which I'm sure will come once the show gets fully in swing.
I forgot that I'd also like to say that it was interesting to hear her speak in Kansai-ben. Never realized she was a Kyoto native.
Kigu-chan is fine though. And I liked her as Saya in Gatchaman Crowds and that one girl in Tanaka-kun. Maybe you have to have a 200+ IQ to fully appreciate her roles.
I suppose it was wrong to phrase it as less likeable, what I meant was more towards her other characters being antithesis to Ren-chon. Kigu was heavily hinted to be a massive slut behind her innocent facade for example. I hadn't watched those shows but yeah maybe her choice of roles are way over my head.
>>33060>Kigu was heavily hinted to be a massive slut behind her innocent facade
Was she really? It's been a while since I've read Joshiraku but this seems like something I'd remember…
To be fair I didn't read the manga but at least it was in the anime.
I remember that bit about getting pregnant in the anime but I don't think anything like that was implied.
Guess it's time for a rewatch.

I don't like how all the girls in this show aren't gay…
I agree, it is a glaring flaw
I like board games enough but this anime is just insanely boring.
I thought this anime was another case of japanese overestimation of everything foreign but it turns out the tabletop gaming business is booming. That's reassuring, in an age where smart devices and touch screens dominate everything.
Tabletop games are a big deal in Japan.
lmao dropped this like 2 eps ago

they translated neechan to san…
That pissed me off. There's no excuse for sloppy subtitles.
Finally, Seitokaichou is one lucky man.>>33665
Midori is is a miracle of the universe.
I decided to check whether or not this anime aired on a more acceptable time table, because the old-fashioned karaoke made me think maybe this airs at a children's time slot. It doesn't seem like that's the case.
Anyway, I've got two more episodes to watch so pardon me!
