Just to point out again, the PV at the top is not the official PV.

Here is the list of official tracks in order, from the bottom to the top.

I have been following the manga for a while now, and I cant believe that this didn't have a thread.

Anyway can someone tell me about the overall plot, since from what I have seen it is a group of visual power users who spend every day doing normal stuff.

It is about saving the people who are looping inside the Kagerou Days, and defeating that guy in Outer Science. Which the Mekakushi Dan had failed to do so every time so far.

So I've been reading this and it's pretty good so far.
Was abit confusing on my 1st read through but got it all after reading it again.
Not sure what to make of the time loop yet as it's abit early to say really but I'm looking forward to seeing whats gonna happen.
Ene's back story being revealed in that manner was also pretty cool and abit jarring at same time, the story jumping around abit made things somewhat confusing if you weren't paying full attention.

Funny, premise talks about Shintaro as if he's the MC which as it goes he is but I'm still at a loss of exactly what kinda role he plays in the story compared to the rest.
It's got me hooked on wanting to find that out but I think it might be some time before we do.

Lots of lovely characters to like but damn chapter 18 threw me for a loop

Shintaro? Ypu can litsen to Lost Time Memory.
That probably is his most important function in the story.

Funny how this thread has less replies and spoilers than anime one.

If you wanna start watching the MVs I recommend watching them in order.

KagePro really needs more love here on animesuki. It's one of the most popular series to emerge.

@Iron Maw: You should check the MVs too.

The anime thread already has about 200 something posts and show hasn't even aired yet. It will most likely gain some recognition but spring is going to be very fierce competition-wise among adaptations more than any other season ever. Mahouka, Blade Dance, DAL, Dragonar Academy, NGNL, KanColle are all highly popular, fulled mainstream elements and even have something of base in western fandom so I won't be surprised if Kagerou Days is overshadowed. The Shaft factor may help it out, but it might have better to wait until the less packed Fall 2014 to air.

Should I check the MVs before manga or does not matter in this case? Because I'm hearing that story would be easier to understand.

In Japan, KagePro is more popular than Mahouka. (You forgot Black Bullet!)

The thread was mostly filled with posts by only few users, majority of the animesuki is either completely ignorant of KagePro, or they are just aware that "something like that exists". Love is really lacking.

I think you should check MVs out first.

Probably most of those posts have nothing to do with the show and everything to do with the music videos and other source materials, and as such shouldn't even be left in that thread in the first place

Ah, okay. Thanks for the tip too. Well things might change a bit here once airing starts as slim chance that is in this mess of season.

After just reading though the thread, it's exactly as you said.

Just so everyone knows, I have included links to the anime thread and the music video thread for Kagerou Days / Mekaku City Actors in the OP for easy reference should anyone want to look at those resources as well.

Hi everyone! This will likely be buried since I don't know how many people were following this thread but here goes.

I came across some info for the 5th Light Novel Volume and I'm gonna be posting it here. Thanks to flower for putting this thread over at the anime thread.

Just as a heads up, this is from Facebook so take it with a grain of salt. I would search for it in Tumblr but I haven't used tumblr in months so I have no clue what I'm doing

Spoiler for Kagerou Daze - The Deceiving:


Hopefully this isn't old news but since there seems to be a lack of inactivity, thought why not share some info? Feel free to ask me any questions. Cheers!

Thank you for the spoiler. Much appreciated.

Gotta give Jin credit, he knows how to keep you interested. I like his style of storytelling. Instead of infodumps, he answers it bit by bit & that's what keeps me coming back.

Spoiler for questions regarding spoiler:
