What is Hataraku?
Anno
Cells At Work
That show about the inside of a human body and all the anthropomorphic cells

Oh I remember that.
Are those full length episodes or half episodes?
Anno
Yeah I'm pretty sure they're both full-length episodes.
S2 is a standard season two continuation of the first series
Black is a genderswapped take on the series plus a somewhat more dark and dangerous take on the infections, body systems going awry, etc. of the original series' concept.

okay
go toubun
okay
lets start
Anno
I think this season changes up the studio or at least the character designer from the first season
The artstyle for the characters is more in line with that of the original manga's.
Yuu

Oh yeah the character design is substantially different

I totally don't remember how he ended up in the hospital hah hah

I don't remember either
the last thing I remember was a dance
Anno
The super-tsun beat the rest of them to the punch
Anno
All the flashback stuff has so far been still shots
I wonder if that's because they don't want to bother re-animating it and don't want the two styles clashing.
Anno
Oh it was their dad who was examining him
He just called his daughters idiots!
I mean it's not an inaccurate statement but still.
Anno
He was really kind of a scoundrel as a kid
Most kids are scoundrels I guess but Futarou was particuarly bratty.
Yuu
Image 1610083796481.jpg (168 KB, 800x600, 1336993647864.jpg)
Looks like he was saved though
Anno
Sure are some interesting parallels here
Anno
They're starting off this new season with some of the big romance plot stuff.
Anno
The "the quintuplets all look the same" stuff still doesn't really work out in the anime though.
Yuu
Image 1610084053789.jpg (388 KB, 800x1310, 1338007409841.jpg)
wow she threw failed tests at him
I honestly don't care for the designs as much
Anno
I'm fine with them.
The original manga's art was nice enough that I do kinda like them "correcting" the anime back to a more similar style.
And so far it looks like this new season has had more time/budget to get the quality a bit better.
Plus I don't particularly remember the previous season enough to have an opinion on the change.
Yuu

They were a lot more fluffy last episode
Anno
Wow he's trying to push the question pretty early on.
Though I guess none of them remember meeting him as a kid.
Actually no if I remember correctly Nino remembers meeting him but still thinks he should have blonde hair like he did as a kid so she doesn't recognize him.

OKAY
okay
higurashi
okay
lets start
Anno
New arc!
Judging from the title we got at the end of the last episode, Neko-damashi-hen, it's not a direct imitation of any previous arc we've seen in Higurashi before.

I'm a bit worried it might end up being a gag arc because of that, but I guess we'll see
Anno
BUT
It is starting off with a bit of a flashback
This is totally the end of the last arc when Keiichi and Satoko went back to her house and Keiichi fought off her uncle.
Meaning we're about to see the berserk Ooishi come in and murder erryone
Yuu

Wow we don't usually get to see the everyone dies part
Anno
That's a revolver he's only got at best another four shots
Anno
Where's he getting all these bullets!
Yuu
Image 1610084963580.png (166 KB, 309x350, 1344227124341.png)
Well he wasn't completely wrong about everything
Anno
I bet it's because Takano told him some of the truths she knows when she got to him with the virus.
As a way to get him properly incensed up for this.
He did gun straight for Rika when he showed up.
Anno
Ah we're finally back in the Sea of Fragments

Also I guess Rika can remember the pain of dying even if she can't remember who killed her normally
Ooshihasdasdfadas NEVERMIND
Yuu
Image 1610085191803.jpg (55 KB, 600x720, 1285740523245.jpg)
Not losing memories seems like a strong power
I wonder if Rika is getting closer to being Bern
Anno
AH
THE DAMAGE ON THE HORN
AAAAHHHH
Anno
This is some light spoilers for late-series Umineko but towards the later Episodes we're introduced to a totally-not-Hanyuu expy like how Bernkastel in it is a totally-not-Higurashi-Bernkastel
That not-Hanyuu character has horns similar to Hanyuu, and one of the character trivias for the character says in the past the not-Hanyuu's horns were damaged, which messed with her memories and personality.
The fact that Hanyuu has the damage on the horn implies that the Hanyuu we know in Higurashi is that "incorrect" personality and after she got her horns restored, she reverted back to the not-Hanyuu in both personality and appearance.
So that the damage is being drawn attention to here makes for an interesting detail.
Yuu
Image 1610085318994.png (195 KB, 500x521, 1336809973043.png)
Yeah, I knew Hanyuu appeared in Umineko.
Anno
I guess this isn't a real Hanyuu though, but rather just a ghost.
Also was that Hanyuu telling Rika there's a weapon in the toolshed that can kill her if she wants to give up
Yuu
Image 1610085489312.jpg (88 KB, 550x550, 1331291457425.jpg)
Well, she said that she was what remained of Hanyuu's power.
Hanyuu was just about out of batteries at the end of the original serise.
Anno
THAT
Or Hanyuu is hinting Rika's not the only person who knows they're looping over and over again.
Yuu
Image 1610085577758.jpg (155 KB, 1065x939, 1348114902808.jpg)
Yeah, it's really obvious who it is.
I guess Rika is probably going to go after her.

And I think this really will lead into Umineko and Rika being Bern.
Anno
Who do you think it's supposed to be? Takano?
Yuu
Image 1610085742690.png (131 KB, 184x338, 1439834995766.png)
Yeah, it's definitely Takano isn't it?
Anno
In the past Takano's shown no evidence of knowing she's in a loop.
Though to be fair no one's really known, only the kids have kind of ever had hints of a feeling they're looping
So if there's someone who has also been looping this whole time, either it's kind of an asspull, Ryuukishi is a genius about going over his previous stories and knowing who to pick to fit that, or it's only these new loops that there's someone else who knows it's a loop.
Anno
But there's also the always possible chance Hanyuu was just subtly telling her she'd have to kill herself with the tool.
That kinda feels like it would break with the rest of the series but it's not impossible to me.
Anno
Oh the tool's just not even there in the first place.
I wonder who snatched it.
Yuu
Image 1610085998470.jpg (64 KB, 1280x720, 1343164070015.jpg)
Oh there is something there.
I wonder what it is.
Anno
AH
That's the shard from the OP
Anno
Well we have the tool with which Rika either kills or kills herself with
I suspect there is going to be someone else who's looping here and the "win condition" of Higurashi is that she's gonna have to kill them herself.
And that task is going to be what truly pushes her over the edge from Rika into Bernkastel.
Because Bern in Umineko is a MEGA bitch
Anno
Also it's interesting that there's going to be more to this Neko-damashi arc.
I kind of half expected it to be a one-off episode where it's just assumed it ends in a BAD END after we got all this valuable plot information.
But I guess there'll be more original plot before everyone dies.
Yuu
Image 1610086267905.png (357 KB, 957x1200, 1347405454515.png)
Bern is also REALLY fixated on not-Takano, isn't she?

I'm really interested to see what happens.

hataraku s2
okay
lets start
Anno
Hm, short answer yes, but not in the way you're thinking.
Bernkastel and Lambdadelta in Umineko have a kind of "we hate each other's guts but have been stuck together for so long that hate has mutated into a weird kind of lovehate thing"
Lambda for Bern is more of an always-present playmate than an actual villain to pursue and defeat.

Bern's real defining feature in Umineko, at least once she stops being just a spectator, is being incredibly sadistic and encouraging any kind of circumstance where emotional and physical torture happens in spades.
She gives people hope and power for the sole purpose of them failing or inducing suffering on themselves and/or others.
Yuu
Image 1610086552171.jpg (164 KB, 1280x720, 1347676527628.jpg)
The original theory on Bern was that she was Rika's hatred and resentment from getting looped so much that budded off and became its own thing so Rika could go live a normal and happy life.
I wonder if they'll end up going with that.
Anno
It's certainly possible, yeah.
The Umineko manga, which is stated by Ryuukishi to be completely canonical, implies there's a direct transference from Rika to Umineko-Bern, and also that Hanyuu and not-Hanyuu are the exact same "person", just after not-Hanyuu regained her memory device she reverted back to her original personality and body.
But Ryuukishi has some pretty specific definitions of what a person is and can be, so it might definitely be that there is a "good" Rika and the shedded darkness which becomes Umineko-Bern

I'm personally working with the belief that Rika and Umineko-Bern are indistinguishably the same "person" until I'm shown otherwise though.
Anno
White Blood Cell sure has a habit of attracking -attracting dame dame cells

You only rise to the top by being the strongest!
Anno
RIP Red Blood Cell
She was a good MC for a while
Anno
Yeah there's not much for a white blood cell to do when it's just a bump on the head.
Yuu
Image 1610087285657.jpg (105 KB, 1280x720, 1334972988149.jpg)
Lots of bad things happen to this person.
Anno
It's all about scale of magnitude.
It might look like it's a lot of bad things, but to the actual person, it's probably just mild, minor everyday things
Like this seems disastrous but it's just a bump on the head!
Anno
Hah hah hah
She really knows how to incentivise the platelets.
Anno
This is a fun edutainment kind of series.
I guess it's not really proper edutainment since it plays everything up as a city rather than a biological body.
But that in of itself is a really good metaphor for a human body, kind of.
I'm glad to finally be getting more of it.

yuru camp

okay
lets start
Anno
Between this and Higurashi Thursdays are going to be a biiiig treat this season.
Definitely the best time of the week for me.
Anno
Also as a heads up this season's probably going to get pretty packed pretty fast.
Even if we drop some of the weaker stuff like some of the stuff we watched yesterday, it'll be hard to stay on top of things with four shows a night, probably.
Anno
An even tinier Shimarin is cute too.
Anno
It's no SHINY DAYS but it's a good OP
Kind of hard to beat SHINY DAYS
Anno
Every tent peg I've seen like those have already had their rings dented or at an angle anyway
I think it's fine if they end up like that from trying to hammer them in
Yuu
Image 1610088869431.gif (318 KB, 240x210, 1345434251646.gif)
She's kinda Rika-like
Anno
She's the inimitable Shimarin!
Anno
I guess even Rin had to start out bumbling before she became a camping pro.
Anno
Oh her phone's even a slightly retro look.
Like it has the wide bezels of an iPhone from like five or six years ago
That's a good bit of detail.
Anno
Honestly some times what your soul is really craving is just a nice cup of cup ramen.
It's not healthy and always has way too much salt, but man it feels good to wolf one down when you're hungry.
Anno
Back to the present!

Has it ever been anything other than cold winter in this?
I guess it's always kinda cold cause of where they are.
Anno
It started in late-autumn so if it's been going slowly it might just have not even cleared winter yet.

Alternatively in the time between season one and season two there was a series of mini-episodes, Heya Camp, that came out.
That might've maybe been some warmer-season content? Don't know though, since I never got around to watching it.

I'm pretty sure it's just been moving slowly though.
Anno
>Time poverty
Ah yeah I know this suffering.
Working forty-two hours a week really makes all your free time evaporate.
Anno
Rin really can't escape Nadeshiko hah hah
Oh I thought she'd already made it out to the place she was camping at.
But she's still in the local area they all live in.
Anno
Yeah if they're only at New Years it might be that the series just hasn't progressed much chronologically.
The first season wrapped up around Christmas after all.
Yuu

thanks for anime
