Everyone hates it. It's awful. You're wrong for liking it.


To be quite frank, I am glad that the anime onlys are now gone on to their next flavor of the month.

EVeryone still hates Sono Bisque though and knows that it's shit. and they've already ruined it forever

When does Fukuda come back?

Lets take a look at marin for instance. Shes pretty, hot and cute all in one, in both personality and looks.
Shes very popular at school and has tons of friends. But also has time to be a loser otaku, and obsess over anime with hundred of episodes, porno doujins and video games. Definitely an impressive feat. She loves to stuff her face with gas station fried food but also cannot cook, yet she can make a living as a thin sexy model. She indulges in a super popular and time consuming hobby that is cosplaying while being portrayed as an anime otaku loser who schlicks it to hentai doijins and porno flash games, but also super popular with a healthy social life and a large amount of friends. Something doesnt really add up to me, a sense of artificial nature in an attempt to appeal to everyone in an unrealistic manner is what becomes apparent. Right off the bat she has very little flaws and her interests are so varied it seems hard to even have the time for all of them, in particular her popularity and a healthy social life and obsession with long formed anime series. We see the artificial and corporate nature of her overall character. An artificial creation, not a realistic character, designed to appeal to anyone not smart enough to pirate their anime. Perfect for coomers because she hot and nerdy and fulfills an unrealistic fantasy. Perfect for weeb broads who want to self insert pretend like their trucker guts dont matter when looking for love. And of course for people who are legitimately interested in the cosplay hobby , looking for tips on building their own outfits. Sounds like a winning combination for a large corporate entity looking to make big bucks from a group of people who are too stupid to read free manga sites or pirate anime properly.

>literally moggs every romcom out there

It's doing fine.

Without his family business and his blessed genetics, despite his skills, the romance is extremely unbelievable. For instance if you take the story and the exact character and turn him into an acne filled, 5'5 manlet, and took away his families wealth the romance seemingly disintegrates. Even letting him keep the skills of his Hina doll obsession the romance between a now poor manlet Gojo and the impossible perfect Marin is so unlikely that even the corporate pay pigs who live on twitter, and pay for their manga and Crunchyroll subscriptions would find the series unrealistic and it would never achieve the popularity it had. Imagine a chubby, dorky, manlet Gojo measuring the breast size of the Lovely Heroine Marin in a dirty 1 bedroom apartment and jerking off to the experience the next episode. It immediately loses the female audience the mangaka is clearly gunning for. Thus the story and romance is not surrounded by the substance of the characters, but the niche roles they fill and the artificial circumstances created in order to make the story work as it does. But in his preset state in the manga, it also allows for a male self insertion audience to gravitate towards the series. Everyone from the anti social losers of society, to the skilled and talented to the 6'4 chads pretending to enjoy anime inorder to plow the autistic goth girl they met on tinder has an opportunity to self insert into this impossible and unrealistic character. An artificial creation for a mass media audience.

Literally just FOTM garbage. Doesn't have the staying power of a true romcom masterpiece like Nagatoro or Kaguya.

Now when I say the characters are impossibly perfect, I dont mean they dont have flaws, but that every aspect of the main characters are designed for mass appeal their both their strengths and flaws. So what do we have with the main characters of the first few arc? We have two characters who should never fall in love, but through artificial means have some how come together to be in a romance together, coupled by two popular hentai caricatures, encompassing multiple fetishes in each one. The romance itself is so fragile that a few simple changes could bring the whole house of cards down. For instance Gojos hand size or height. No way does the perfect Marin of Sono Bisque, let fat manlet Gojo take measurements of her in her underwear. And adding weight to Marin or making her ugly also destroys everything the character stands for as her job, which pays for the cosplay adventures would be nonexistent and her popularity and social life would not be the same. Fatties that stuff their mouth with gas station fried chicken arent all that popular. The second a single aspect of the perfectly crafted romance is changed the entire thing falls apart. However this series is not meant to picked apart and discussed ( as is evident in their threads) but to be consoomed and coomed to, for both male and female (and those in between) allowing for a massive and wide audience to take part in. An audience that will certainly cough up a few bucks for a subscription fee or manga volume. Looking at this from an outside perspective it follows a corporate marketing mentality , a checklist of popular stereo types and two artificial feeling characters. A show meant to suck dollars from the female american (sex) working class and the simps and coomers that cant pirate anime. Which is why the "high sales" aspect of the series is not particularly impressive considering the corporate nature in which the manga and anime is created from. It is by design that it moves masses of volumes.

Now that we've discussed Marin and the series artificial and corporate nature, we can we look at Nagatoro and its characters and the main focus about the specific relationship between these two, believable and flawed characters. Its also not meant to be a self insertion story, as both characters are have their own specified personalities that can sometimes be hard to guess or self inserted into. I dont think a single person would self insert as Naoto especially early on. And very few are willing to self insert as Nagatoro considering her harsh and somewhat abusive introduction. What we have are two characters that are not necessarily envied by the audience, and neither is their weird relationship/romance. And yet the entire thing evolves naturally and believably from a traumatic bullying experience into a cute romance where both characters evolve based on the influence from the other. It does not rely on Coomer needs, popular tropes or hobbies explained to the audience, and is somewhat off putting based on the initial concept and the tone its carried out by. It relies on comedy, writing, the drawings themselves and story telling to survive. Its why Nagatoro is not a popular big titted bimbo and arguably is not the best girl in her own series, HOWEVER she is certainly the best girl for Naoto, and your needs or taste are not necessary in this artistic decision. The series, the concept and the character are inherently off putting. And despite also revolving around art, swimming or sports , does not rely on a popular hobby being explained to the audience for filler chapters. Certainly not constructed for mass appeal by an audience that would be deemed profitable enough to pander an entire series around. Its an artistic risk , with flawed characters that are not designed with the audience in mind at its conception. Its certainly not meant for normalfaggots like Sono bisque.

The obvious starting point here is with Nagatoro and the different approach used for her character compared to Marin and the artificial construction of her character. And the two characters could not be more different in both how they are approached, to their designs and the actual drawings. Based on looks you wouldn't even think Nagatoro is the main character of the show, but that is an intentional choice. Short, tanned, has small knockers and an abrasive personality. She is immediately off putting to the typical coomer audience as well as the normal faggots who pay for crunchy roll premium instead of torrenting their anime properly.

Which means the appeal must come outside of the big tits and sexual euphemisms. The relation ship, and just as important, the slap stick and comedy, (something sono bisque lacks immensely) are forced to become the main focus of the series without a reliance on sex appeal. Good comedy is what her character is focused on, at the expense of her looks and off-putting personality. If you were to describe Nagatoro I would say shes funny above all else. With cute being a second.

We're not drowned in too many personal hidden character details meant to be displayed to connect to the audience. You see her as Naoto sees her, and are left to draw your own conclusions outside of the chapters, although obviously this builds over time. She comes off as inherently normal. Average. Run of the mill. But with a sadistic and mean spirited personality. Shes not meant to be a coomer idol. Its the personality and the sadistic actions that make her a compelling character and the need to find the motivations for said actions is what drives the reader forward into the series.

No one would give a shit about this adaptation if the animation wasn't traced from CGI.

And of course we have the secondary main character Senpai. A character so unlikable and pathetic no one other than an extreme masochist would want to self insert into his position. As a matter of fact, the main appeal of the series early on is specifically to laugh at this otaku stereo type getting bullied although some people would find him sympathetic and to be pitied. And once again this is not an inherently popular appeal as most of the projected buyers are getting PTSD flashbacks to their own pathetic childhood while at the same time being "problematic" as the normal cunts would put it, to the normal side of the internet who are too stupid to pirate anime and read manga for free.

Once again an artistic choice that is not motivated by money or popularity. Your tastes need not apply. Its an artistic risk to put the "Self Insert Male character" in such a pathetic and painful position. Without explaining his families wealth , or luck on the genetic lottery as a way to offset his misery.

But like Nagatoro, the draw comes from finding what his motivation is for dealing with such nonsense. Is he really that much of a pushover, or is he a secret masochist who likes the bullying? Is he just so female starved that any attention his way, regardless of how he feels about it, is something he craves? None of this is displayed to the reader in an obvious fashion for relatability purposes. Nothing about his character is created in an artificial way for sales and profit. Its simply compelling.

And as time goes on , we see him fight back against Nagatoro and her bullying. Calling her bluffs, playing and winning her games. Theres no magical prefabricated skill that intersects with the perfect females obscure interest or hobbies. He starts to win Nagatoro over, slowly but surely, with his own skilland his own interest that makes him different to his counterpart. He wins her over rather with his personality rather than work for free in order to gain her affection.

In no way are either of these two characters or the relation ship designed by committee for mass appeal from normalfaggots. It is not an artificial check list of popular tropes mashed up into two impossibly attractive individuals who magically fall in love. It is not designed to be popular. It is an artistic and personal decision at its core. And its far more solid and believable as a result.

You could change so much about either character that the structure of the story would not fall apart. Making Nagatoro a fatty does not change the story. Making Naoto taller does not effect the story. Outside of massive character changes, the story is the same and believable. Naoto and Senpais romance does not rely on attractiveness. The relationship does not rely on wealth or talent. It does not rely on a specific intersection of hobbies and talents that miraculously come together in an artificial and constructed form, that also happens to be an extremely trendy and popular hobby, loved by people too stupid to pirate their anime and manga.

It is not designed to be popular at all. The comedy and the realistic trajectory of these two characters have to be the main focus for it to be popular. It cannot rely on tits, or popular tropes, or even a hobby or interest explained to the audience in order to maintain its popularity. Its relies on substance. Even though Painting, judo or swimming are very relevant to the characters, chapters do not rely on explaining these hobbies to the audience for content. The focus is always on the characters, in comedic or romantic scenarios.

There was no hype. The source material is a cute manga that maybe 50 people around here read before anime hit, including me, I was ready to just have fun time with this niche title. Bam, everyone decided that hey, Marin is hot, let's draw 10000 samey fanart of her and pretend the show is now super hot shit, just to forget it exists a week after the final episode. Such a sad case of FOTM even as a fan I wasn't happy that Marin got all the art, it was all insincere.

>resorting to name-calling for response.

Loli has 0% chance of winning

The new anime season.
Nowadays with all the casual influx anime are just flavors of the seasons, sometimes even of the month. It happens all the time that hype for some memefied series floods the board and then after four or six weeks you don't see any of this anymore and the discussions shrank down to weekly threads with the same 60 IPs and the casual falseflagger bait thread.

Being seasonal garbage

I’m out of time

May 20

But I'm out of my head when you're not around

>Marin is hot, let's draw 10000 samey fanart of her

I am so sick of seeing that fucking bikini fanart.

Have there been any news of when the next manga chapter is coming?

I really think it's the same guy making all these "why is this show forgotten?" or "what killed the hype?" threads for Bisque Doll. For a show that ended last season it's still getting some attention and a decent amount of fan art. Seems like the OP is just obsessed with the show for whatever reason.

The wait for new manga chapters is unbearable.

It was a blast reading through to catch up, but then the Akira drama just keeps dragging on, and to have 6 weeks with no chapter after that previous cliff hanger, Gojo and Marin better fuck.


The manga has been dogshit since the succubus cosplay.

There you have your culprits, OP.

As for the side characters, the series is almost exclusively about Nagatoro, Naoto and their relationship, leaving most of the side characters of Nagatoro under characterized due to the structure of the story telling. As a result a lot is left to headcannon and small glimpses of their believable and lovable personalities, which is responsible for the Waifu Wars in the Nagatoro threads . However most of it is banter and shitposting between bros. Aside from Pres and Shikki (arguably their giant tits also serve a comedic purpose) none of the side characters are meant to represent disgusting fetishes from the coomer checklist. No legal Lolis or Underage slampigs, no crossdressing. The minor characters are as a result left as realistic and believable friends and serve to heighten the inferiorities of Nagatoro , giving Naoto and the readers a leg up on Nagatoro and her teasing. Shes not meant to be some perfect Bimbo created for mass appeal. Shes an average girl who has seized love and shaped it into her preferred image. She broke down the spirit of a latent chad and built him up with love and dedication to become someone both she and himself have become proud of. So much so now the favor is being returned to her by Naoto, going beyond what she imagined he'd become. This was simply wonderful opportunity to shit on Marin faggots and their Nigger-centric hentai doujins, the low effort shit posting and their pitiful attempts to derail the threads as of late. And I have used this opportunity to sort of explain why Nagatoro isnt the best girl in the series. Shes not meant for you fucking coomers, she belongs to Naoto.

Unlike The bimbo Marin, and the corporate marketing tactics that surround every aspect of Sono Bisque series, inescapable from the corporate arm of Japanese marketing teams deployed to suck money from western pay pigs, Nagatoro actually embodies the spirit of love rather than corporate consumerism. Go read some NTR doujins


This, I legitimately don't care about introducing more and more side characters, Gojo still has plenty of shit he needs to work out and the focus needs to shift back over to him and Marin. They could actually flesh him out a bit more and Marin as well, but the constant stream of new faces just really dilutes it.
Also, if they're not going to show any more titty after only showing Juju's once at the beginning of the series then that's going to be lame as fuck.

Why does it turn into cosplay tips and doll making? Does the author run out of ideas?

The anime ended in a high point then.


Nagatoro is love. Nagatoro is life.

Seriously, for something based in a couple of doujins about literal balls kicking, the two leads in Nagatoro have surprisingly depth as characters.

It pretty much did, the school festival was a snooze. Gojo got a boost of confidence there, but everything went too smoothly for him in my opinion, everyone just fellated him. We needed someone to play an antagonist of sort.

Was fun little bits of info to tack onto the romcom as a gimmick.
At the rate it's going I bet it'll be ~3 years before we even see the childhood friend girl and then probably another 2-3 before anything meaningful happens with him moving past it all.

Whats next for square enix?

New Tomb Raider trilogy.

They sold the rights to that.
