I love the way Dekomori says "death", but I couldn't stop thinking of The Producers.

So... Sorry... I had to.

So discussing background eh?
What about they created manually using photo as reference then improved in post-production.
If they using photo as reference, still considered as copy - paste?



Oh boy look at that amount of paint. This looks like a tedious work than using few click filter to turn photo into background art.

I am also sure that they are using some specialized software to make their work easier than blur->sharpen->ink->color adjust
Except that it isn't the way they do things. You make it sound like they just take a picture, put a layer on it, and retrace it, despite that's absolutely not the case. I really don't get your weird assumption that KyoAni (or any other studio) would use "photoshop" (or any software that makes a rendition of a picture), as the pictures are obviously more akin to reference alone. Heck, even Mangaka like Akamatsu has to recreate 3D models of the RL places he draw: he just didn't go there, took a photo and retrace (to which would hardly happen anyway, even in our days promoting digitalized methods).
Also, photography and ambiant effects definitely cannot use what you got from RL sceneries: you have to deal with a very different approach for the anime format, and matches as well the color pattern, presentation etc (bloom effect and so forth). So no, it isn't a simple "hue tweeking" either.

Even the lowest budget studios wouldn't use that: CGI is one thing, but picture insertion (except done on purpose, like Bakemonogatari) is absolutely a no go, regardless of the series genre, "pedigree" and whatnot.
Quote:
True, but I was not referring to the majority of studios that have hardly a budget for model consistency, but the minority where their background art is both original and inspiring... unfortunately those two attributes are allergic to mass production.
Inspiring is not only quite subjective, but highly dependant to the premise and said series. Expecting sophisticated backgrounds in a high school series is just ridiculous: it would be too distracting and a complete waste, save few series that involve more than just High School.

Anyway, that's all there is to say, as it is more of behind the scene discussion (which is not only KA oriented, so I really don't want to yet again have to cut again with that kind of trend) than anything chu2koi related.


Back to the topic: is there any clear indication in the LN when Yuuta start calling Rikka by her first name? It felt a bit "bizarre" he did so in this episode.
Meanwhile, Lite 4 is available
Spoiler for lite 4:

Yuuta should teach Yumeha not to hang around Rikka too much. She could easily be influenced by Rikka's delusions, and I don't think they want a chibi-chuuni among their ranks.

So now, all main girls are in one club. Ten to one Yuuta will now join as well, if it were only to either keep Rikka company, try and flirt with Shinka, or both.

When Makoto said he was joining the Light Music Club, and said “you don’t need to like music”. The first thing I pictured was tea and cakes … lol

I think Nibutani being a former chuunibyou would be kinda boring. It dilutes the chuunibyou thing by having so many, whether former or current.

A show about Chunni-byou... And you expect less Chunni-byou? At least now it will be balanced with two former and two current, and one in the middle.

Actually, I remember an early synopsis (not spoiler) already identifying Nibutani as a former Chunni-byou like Yuuta... Or at least, I think they were referring to her... Scratch that, it wasn't Nibutani, but how in the Hell did the synopsis changed so much ?

By former, you mean Kumin-senpai is a former Chuu-2 as well? I somehow think that Kumin’-senpai's past Chuunibyou status has neither been denied nor confirmed, although she is definitely a quirky enough type of gal to fit in.

Rikka does find Yuuta amusing, and Yuuta is ever more so amusing by each passing moment. Although who really knows what she's looking for from Yuuta?
I think it's clear she's pretty attached to him, and is already exhibiting signs of jealousy.

I think you're right that Yuuta's view of Rikka is colored by his embarrassment at his previous self, and he's just a teenager, so we shouldn't be too hard on him, BUT I do wish he'd be nicer to Rikka. I wouldn't call him or a jerk, or even say his character is unlikable, but I do prefer a more mature and empathetic male lead. He plays the straight man well, thinks quickly on his feet (I remember the early scene of him grabbing Rikka's legs), and takes a positive interest in Rikka in a tsundere-ish sort of way (him going to her eating lunch by herself), but I wish he wouldn't so blatantly ignore Rikka's feelings. Some of this is normal male obliviousness, combined with the comic demands of the plot (especially the slapstick), but I think the series would be better if he was more likeable--i.e. something more akin to Kyon.

^I understand why he does so – he said it himself that he wishes he could hit himself when he
was doing the same back then. So in a way, he’s treating her the same way he believes he should have been treated, IMO.
