Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou



Light novel Arifureta Shokugyou de Sekai Saikyou (Arifureta: From Commonplace to World's Strongest) is getting a TV anime. Coming for Spring 2018
Studio will be White Fox.

Plot Summary
Quote:
Seventeen-year-old Hajime Nagumo is your average, everyday otaku. However, his simple life of pulling all-nighters and sleeping in school is suddenly turned upside down when he, along with the rest of his class, is summoned to a fantasy world! They're treated like heroes and tasked with the duty of saving the human race from utter extinction. But what should have been any otaku's wet dream quickly turns into Hajime's nightmare. While the rest of his class are blessed with godlike powers, Hajime's job, Synergist, only has a single transmutation skill. Ridiculed and bullied by his classmates for being weak, he soon finds himself in despair. Will he be able to survive in this dangerous world of monsters and demons with only a glorified blacksmith's level of strength?

If it's AT-X then maybe the gore won't be completely censored. But damn I didn't expect this announcement to be less than 2 cours away from actual airing date. I hope that means that it was already long in development instead of an extremely rushed production.

Also I wonder how they will tackle this. If they don't show some of the "edginess" in anime ep1, then many people might drop this because of "lol, generic".



Also inb4 people will call the Tate no Yuusha anime, once it airs, a "rip-off" of this because Arifureta anime will have aired earlier. Mark my words.

While white fox is on the better side, I don't have a good feeling about the director... it's the guy who let Kingdom turn into pure CGI.


Also aren't those "designs" just the LN designs? I am quite sure they are the exact same images I have seen in the novel thread long ago. And as far as I am concerned, the manga designs are infinitely better, escpacially in regards to Hajime.

White fox is a really good studio for this adaptation but I can't stop thinking this is gonna be a mess simply because Arifureta will be a filler material while we wait for Re:Zero S2 (now that there is enough material for S2). Also Arifureta is not the best story to be honest, I don't have much hope for this one.

Wut? Not all of the series with strong objectionable content aired on this channel had to be censored and would be better off waiting for Blu-Ray depending on the production committees for each of them but then I haven't watched much seasonal anime since the start of last year so I wouldn't know.

I fuck with White Fox, so I'm in.

Anyone got a deeper explanation of the story they're talking about? What would you compare it to in terms of quality?

Let the author explain that for you or better said why he knows this is not good. Arifureta is getting anime just because is popular.

There's a certain earnestness in the author's afterwords which I find admirable; that he writes just because he loves writing, no matter how cringey or corny everyone says it is.

Nop, just showing that even the author knows his work is below average. The choice is yours, read it or watch the anime under that premise, maybe you'll like it or not.

I'm only hoping that as we go through all the usual WN adaptation suspects we will eventually get to Mushoku Tensei.

Well it depends what "standard" for quality is used. People cannot even agree on what makes something "good writing" and what makes something "bad writing". Is it the typical format/style of writing? Is it sales/reads? Is it internal consistency?

While I didn't think it was amazing, felt the manga version was enjoyable enough. At the very least I wasn't bored which at least gives it a strong edge over Smartphone....

The author bit makes him sound like a good guy. Does actually make me interested in seeing this thing animated.

Plus I generally like the stuff that White Fox gets behind. So will at least check out the first few episodes in Spring to see where the enjoyment levels are at with this.

Aaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!! I knew of this series a while back only to realize a year later that it sucks like anything. Plot convenience, deus ex machina, pulling inventions out of nowhere. People had the audacity to say that, "because it's not so serious and the author admits that, we shouldn't criticize it as so much." Like hell! Just because a series doesn't take itself so seriously, doesn't mean it shouldn't be criticized to this extent. I feel sick to my stomach.

I don't have high expectations for this story, but White Fox is a studio that I can get behind, so I'll check it out.

I don't think you have to worry about that. I'm pretty sure most people on this forum know that it's all the same shit. XP
