Katanagatari is one of those series that splashes across multiple genre. It is going to attract people who have wildly different interests (rather like Gurren Lagann did). Some people will be here for adventure, some for the relationships or character exposition, some for the fighting, some for the voice acting, some because they are fans of the author.

So there's going to be a wide variety of topics flowing through this thread until/if it gets its own subforum. Everyone should just get used to that -- heck, I'm still trying to figure out why one of the most voluminous threads in the Nanoha section is the weapons/tech discussions.

And yes, about the hentai:
People can generate something pornographic/hentai about *anything* and usually do. I tripped across some sex toys being sold based on Lucky*Star characters the other day at the jlist shop. I mean, I find a couple of the characters interesting but it was a "wth?" moment. I imagine hentai doujinshi was being generated about Togame before the light novel ink had stopped drying.

I was still pretty sure you can't even make fanservice with TAKE's designs before the show aired, but I guess I was wrong as shown in episode 1.

Still makes me @__@ though.

5~6 more days till episode 2, it's going to be so horrible waiting for a month after that ...

I can't believe there are still people who haven't heard of Rule 34. I can't imagine being surprised by anything in that regard.

I've heard of it, I've seen it (2 shopping carts "banging" each other). Doesn't mean I can't be surprised by it.

Sometimes I'd like to believe I'm not completely de-sensitized by Internet yet.

You don't understand! I was looking for Koumori porn, I swear!!!
It was one of those image databases that show hentai along with safe stuff.

argh.... I got spoiled on a major plot point in a google result while looking for pretty pictures and wallpaper. People might tread carefully when googling.

Ah well... grit my teeth and watch it unfold.

My first thought when I saw that: "That looks like a formal wedding picture."

Because they haven't appeared in the series yet, meaning we'd have nothing to say about them. Can't really talk a lot about a bunch of shadows we seen for about 5 seconds.

Plus i'd say that's a spoiler image.

That's why it's under a spoiler thingy. Besides, whatever happened to speculation?

I don't know how far I can speculate about that bee ninja. XD

... I don't know why but the first thing I notice was the thick sandal she is wearing, then I notice he is holding her hand

Most of us didn't buy the guidebook.

That pic would be more useful in the light novel thread (where spoilers are okay). People who have read the light novel would be more interested in seeing how characters who have not appeared yet have been drawn for the anime adaptation.

Okay first off, the scan is from the CD single booklet, not the guide which I havn't got yet and second, there's not ebough people who have read the novels to talk about them. I think people hate me there anyway since I can't read them and I just want to ask questions. What else can we talk about here?

Heh... I'm not *objecting to it*, just saying it might be more interesting to people in that thread. As far as this thread.... without bringing the manga spoilers into it, I can't think of much to say other than discussing the episode(s) released to date.

Personally, I got spoiled on a major plot point yesterday while happily browsing for pics so I'm hesitant about participating in any speculation now. :P

Yeah, but a couple of things to note:

1. The ED usually takes month and a half tops from airing for most shows

2. There's a different ED every month, from what I've read. By the time April 7th rolls around, we'd be looking at almost 4 EDs! That's not much of a point, but it leads me to

3. I'd be satisfied with just a TV size ED rip, but with other EDs, and a once a month airing schedule, we'd be lucky to get that in 2011. Nothing to "hold the fort" other than listening to the ED on youtube or something--if it's on anyone's mind by the time ED 2/3 roll around.

Yeah, just me nitpicking my annoyance about the longer than average wait.

Well starting from April we'll be getting song by song once a month? Two and a half month delay isn't such a big of a deal... I learned lots of patience with Shaft failing to make the fifth Bakemonogatari opening for episode 11, then 12 then 13 and now they're delaying ep 14 as well. And I simply can't wait anymore to hear ANY appropriate version after the small piece I've heard 3 months ago in a trailer.

My point is - it's not a big deal. Have patience, that's all. :3
