It was alright, however A-chan's presence/voice was like 10x more dominant than it should have been. Ina was really quiet.

Besides A-chan it was mostly Gura and Marine doing the talking. Gura is nervous to decide to hang out with someone but can at least get to talking once she does and is sociable, and Marine is a chatterbox naturally and basically thank god she was there or else it would have been twice as quiet and awkward.

Aqua is shy and autistic like fucking literally-so and it is well known she pretty much almost cannot speak around strangers. So foreign coworkers almost entirely speaking a language she doesn't understand, yeah that's about how it goes. Aqua's English is very much like Gura's Japanese - non-existent functionally. However as the collab was on Gura's channel and she is personally interested in Aqua she was more talkative. If you looked/listened carefully, Gura specifically kept saying "hi!" right at Aqua several times trying to get her to talk a bit. You would have had a tough time realizing she was even present if her avatar wasn't on screen however. It's kind of unusual because Aqua can be normal and chatty sometimes, I think she just really really was not used to the situation so slipped into quiet autism mode the whole time.

There really isn't anything wrong with it but I just can't get into the group. Comes off as rather abrupt. But if the worst thing to come out of it is cute shorts and passable collabs then fine I guess. If it is here to stay I hope the girls get more control and find a more natural synergy.

Would have been nice to do Holotori, though I guess the 4th member is in collab ban land. Maybe give Irys a boost, she kinda got sidelined and maybe throw Azki in to help her out. There were options for both natural and forced groups do I wonder why this was chosen.

Just watched it. It was ogey. Nothing really to write home about either way.
I'm assuming the whole point of their "unit" (corporate project) isn't just some cheap semi cartoon, but the end goal is probably to release a song and/or merch to buy and this whole stuff around it is basically just advertising in the lead up?

As for content specific thoughts:

First of all, throughout the whole thing I was thinking "I'd rather have an all-EN cartoon, wasted opportunity", but oh well.

Presentation felt pretty cheap, and not really in a charming way. Whoever was in charge of this doesn't find it worth enough to give it the HoloGra treatment, and yeah sure EN doesn't have 3D models yet, but even still, I've seen better fan animation clips even.

The "jokes" were pretty cringe (as expected of a corporate project, sasu guh Cover), again HoloGra isn't the pinnacle of comedy either, but I've already gotten used to it and fwiw its rapid fire lolsorandum pace at least assures that no single dumb joke overstays its welcome, whereas here it lacked the necessary element of chaos to make this dumb shit work.

As for the voice work, Gura's amateur VA experience was nice and shined through, similarly Ina's... lack of experience, her lines fell pretty "flat" (haha get it, because she has no boobs! Ayyyy gottem, Cover hire me, because that's apparently the level of humor you're aiming at here).

If this going to be a regular "thing", at least for a while, then best of luck to them. Should make for some good experience at least, but I'm not really going out of my way to follow this too closely because it just wasn't that interesting to me. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't so bad that I'll go out of my way to shit on it either (and hey, maybe it'll at least be good for some cute screenshots or memeable voice lines coming out of it), but yeah, so far this is just... ogey...

My thoughts are that Gura and Ina's dialogue sounds like it was written by someone whose entire knowledge of EN comes solely from watching 10 minutes worth of clips 11 months ago.

>> No.9821308

I don't blame them as they clearly didn't write any of it. Gura doesn't even do A that much any more. Ina is also the straight man who randomly throws out a deadly left hook, so this dialogue was never gonna be easy for her. Marine and Aqua felt a bit more themselves so maybe this is just a case of JP management being out of touch, a shocking revelation. But I think they could be funny once they are more familiar with each other.

Personally I'd have built it up over a few months. Do a collab with each pair then bring them together. Only issue is Gura's moon, but it could be scuff fun in the right game.

>> No.9821664

Wish they can become more comfy next time. It was super awkward. I was expecting more.
yup, I agree with everything
Ina is still awkward in larger groups, she will get better though.
I don't understand why Kiara gets so much hate. Is it her voice and high pitched screeches? It's not that bad, she more than makes up for it with her personality.
Nijisanji fails because they chose a japanese name instead of an english / bilingual one. Hololive is easy to understand in both languages. EOP will not understand "Nijisanji." It's a management fail.
If it doesn't get better then ya it's not as good content as their normal stuff. But if they get comfy together over time, it could become something even bigger than it already is.
The burger is a net positive for hololive, she just needs to tone down the screeching a little bit. Her voice is constantly hoarse, and the constant yelling is the reason it changed compared to her cute, soft debut voice. She is really great at filling time though. And great in collabs because she lifts the energy and loosens people up. She is like the opposite of Kronii who sometimes makes people feel more awkward with each other. Kronii will get better though.
I tried to get into Ina but she's at her best in drawing streams. She has a comfy style but I wish she could stream more. Maybe she doesn't know what to do.

I didn’t like it, or at least I was kind of disappointed.
I can’t put words into it, but the acting felt lackluster, and A-chan seems to be unnecessary. Also, there’s something about the animation… I would’ve preferred a manga.

Sure, maybe Cover is wary of featuring fanwork on their official channel for their own projects, but at least the girls can pick up the slack (as they always have to do) and organize their own projects with them.

I mean, i don't see this costing THAT much money, certainly not as much as creating a 3D model or holding a 3D concert. That type of video could be done by one very good person or a group of 3 decent people (writing, drawing, editing). Just look up "Hololive Animated" and you'll see tons of examples of similar style done by people on their free time.

I'd say a video like this AT MOST would be 1k usd, and thats me being incredible generous and thinking Cover is paying more for tax breaks (or whatever they do in JP), also i don't know if the girls get paid too or if this falls under their salary.

I'll just copypaste my opinion from the Gura thread.

These kinds of short omake videos have been a thing for a very long time, reaching back into the 80s (personal knowledge) and probably earlier. They're supposed to be just like this is - short animated videos reminiscent of a street performance... kamibashirai or something as it was called, which was one of the roots of anime. They aren't supposed to be or aim to be fully animated or anime per se. I see people complaining about this, but they don't seem to realize their expectations don't match the general idea at all. It's like buying a car and complaining it isn't a horse.

I liked it. It's omake. It's nice to see it existing and it showcases the extent of the popularity of Gura, Ina and Hololive as a whole. Think of these as cookies or a sip of coffee, they aren't supposed to be or aim to be a full meal. Just a little nudge and a wink.

Speaking of the collab, I swear to God you people are impossible to please:

We all want to see EN/JP collabs. But there is an obvious problem, and that problem is the language barrier. It would be absurd, ridiculous, impossible, to expect the JP side to know English and the EN side to know Japanese to the extent they can talk effortlessly. Why do Americans have a problem with this simple fact? Cover is aware of the fact we want to see collabs and they go out of their way to make them happen, but you all go way too far into bitching about the "lack of chemistry" or whatever which comes from the simple fact that they don't know JP & EN all that well on their respective sides. The "hurr learn the language" bit doesn't hold water to anyone who is multilingual, because one doesn't simply fumble or halfass into knowing a foreign language, be it English or otherwise. Learning a foreign language is a time consuming, laborious task to anyone but little kids.

As a eurofag I know English and German, and being a Croat neither of the two are similar to my barbarous tongue. I just fail to understand how and why Americans can't grasp the simple fact that it's not a problem that the girls have trouble relaxing and bonding during collabs, because the alternative is no collabs. You bitch either way instead of being happy we get anything at all.

>> No.9831929

the language barrier was a bigger issue here because Gura's lack of japanese puts her INA rough spot. she can't talk to Aqua which I'm guessing was her goal, since Aqua just shuts off and language barrier. And since 3/4 can understand each other A-Chan felt more like bantering in Japanese than translating bc it would essentially be just translating for Gura. and no, I'm not a salty chumbud, honestly I feel bad for Ina the most, she could just collab with aqua, marine and even A-Chan but since gura is there she has to decide wether to go full japanese and leave gura behind or just use japanese seldomly as to not make gura feel left out. also ESL here.
what I'm saying is: a 1 to 1 JP/EN collab would be best, Ina and kiara being the easiest experience. but also watching Gura + Marine would be cute since they would try hard to use both languages in order to make themselves understood. heck Gura and Aqua might be cute since I'm pretty sure gura would do everything in her grasp to relate to Aqua.

Your post just reads like shitty cope while pointing out this huge issue with no real solution. They didn't need to force this collab. Gura had already reached out to her JP senpais in a way that worked for her. Ina has done JP language collabs. Support those, build on those, fund ideas the holos have. Cover is aware we want collabs? Why not people who speak the same language? Why not established cross region groups? Cause really this is a rather awkward Gura does the numbers set something up.

Good first attempt at voice acting, hopefully they get over their nerves especially Ina.

>> No.9834129

it wasn't bad, pretty decent actually. I don't watch a lot of the hologra episodes but this seems to be a nice alternative while also including the EN members.
also after that episode there is no doubt that umisea is inspired by this fan animation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2TamAjKizU

You have it mixed up. Chumbuds (i.e. Amerimutt EOPs) have been seething the most about it because they hate Ina and hate almost all of the main branch, including Aqua and Marine.

What did you expect when half the board is filled with eop newfags

>What's even more baffling is why they made it duolingual, Ina can speak Japanese and Gura can mimic it well, so why make it half and half?
If you thought their voice acting was bad in English, imagine how it would be in a language they aren't fluent in (Ina) or know at all (Gura).

Ina felt like so lifeless like was just reading.

>> No.9835415

I like it. They need to update the gag. Gura don't go shaaark much anymore. No hocha from gura at all when she attacked ina. No wah. The flat joke felt flat. I think gura could have say some other snarky thing.

I'm pretty sure the girls did not have creative input on the script.
Which they really should.

Just like my like my Japanese anime comedies/10
At this rate some of EN might get cameo spots in studio produced stuff.

I want to force Gura to listen to her own voice acting over and over.
