Wrong question. If Papika stays in PI forever, does she die or not?

Parker Morris

So guys, I unfortunately figured out how they are going to make the ending bittersweet.

start of episode 1
cocona has no idea about what to write about when the topic is "where do you want to go one day (but can't go right now)"
end of episode 13, the paper is finally due, she turns in an essay about wanting to go to PI so she can be with Papika again.

At the same time, the damage has already been done. I waited and waited for Flip Flappers to finally show its hand and commit to its strongest ideas, only to be supplanted by a conclusion that feels like a different show entirely, mandated by a faithless or scrambling production committee. At best, the last two episodes will have to be damage control for a largely failed story with some beautiful imagery and a tragic amount of promise.

After watching it, I think the premise would make a really interessing game. Think about it:
you create a character and go to procedurally generated online worlds alone or with friends
each world has an item that you must find for some reason
there're defense mechanisms attempting to stop you from getting the item
other people can log in the world you are in to try to get the item before you and your friends, pvp is fully unrestricted
if you die, you are not allowed in said world anymore
the monsters and defense mechanisms get progressively harder the longer you stay in a world and also according to how many people are online
Would a game like this flip flap or flop?

I wouldn't say they are experiencing the same journey that a lot of western gay folks experience
Just because some viewers and reviewers read their relationship as romantic doesn't necessarily mean they're applying their western vision of queer identity to it (not like they would have a full grasp on it anyway: most of them aren't even gay).

Similarly, just because we can't assume that neither Cocona nor Papika would have the same experience nor carry the same baggage as real life lesbians doesn't mean that actual gay people can't identify with some individual elements of the former's journey to discovering what love is.
In that sense, I don't think merely dismissing people who did interpret Cocona's feelings as romantic as baka gaijins is proper (especially when the show's first seven episodes have spent so much time on portraying and developping the two girls' growing intimacy through both the visuals and the writing).

That other guy got it right: There's nothing wrong with seeing at least the first half of the show as some sort of gay discovery story, the text absolutely supports that interpretation. The problem is just when you then throw a bitch fit about how the rest of the show doesn't keep on doing that.

it did the contrary, making Cocona dependent of Papika
Actually I think it did the opposite in ep 10. She clearly rejected that dependency on Papika, even if it was mostly because of her jealously and heartache.

A weaker person might have stayed with Papika and buried her misgivings, as those who stay in abusive relationships do. A stronger person (or Cocona in better circumstances) might have stayed and sorted everything out.

Cocona took the middle ground and jumped in to a pipe. Which was at least pro-active and a bit badass even if in the service of running away.

The emotional context makes it bloody hard to analyse ep10.

Parker Parker

In that sense, I don't think merely dismissing people who did interpret Cocona's feelings as romantic as baka gaijins is proper (

I don't mean to be dismissive but that interpretation can only be taken so far with how the story has been developed. Instead of accepting that and adjusting how they are viewing the show they bash the program for not performing to their preconceived ideas.

Its lazy, instead of finding enjoyment in the story doing something they couldn't imagine at first they are angry. They don't want to be challenged they want to be told what they already know

Jack Long
Jack Long

It's not like Flip Flappers has become a radically different show though. All the plot threads it's cashing in right now have been set up since episode 1. And it's still absolutely a story about Cocona's problems dealing with growing up and change.
It's just no longer vague enough to support any interpretation you want (especially concering the show's overall goals), and apparently certain parties seem to think that just because there's an overt plot now, they can switch off their brain and not pay attention to the subtext anymore. Because as everyone knows, only seeing meaning in narratives that are otherwise incomprehensible is smart, and if any old fool can understand what's going on there's no articles explaining what it ACTUALLY means to the plebs to be written.

Mason Miller

Julian Scott

where is THE bulge?

Carson Myers
Carson Myers

It seemed pretty clear to me. Cocona was so completely overwhelmed that she took the hard blue-pill and decided to escape from all the flip flap stuff and run home to grandma. It wasn't about rejecting Papika's leadership, it was about rejecting an entire continuity of scary, changing and uncertain circumstances where boundaries were no longer clear to her because she'd been made aware of so many secrets and lies that her only response was to flush the whole thing and return to her former life. A complete 180.

Quite fitting that mommy returns right at the peak of Cocona's rejection of change.

What do you guys love love LOVE about Papika?

I like how she loves fun, loves adventures, has a positive attitude, and how devoted she is to those she cares about!

A girl like her would push you to get out of your shell and do fun things without judging you negatively for being passive or critical of it.

Parker Ross
Parker Ross

One thing that occurs to me is that there's now no mystery anymore about what happened between episode 1 and 2, even though we were never told. Cocona's life being entirely under Asclepius' control and Papika just not giving a fuck as long as Cocona's okay explains it all pretty nicely.
That's pretty funny for something that has so consistently rustled people for most of the season.

Isaac Moore

Jackson Torres

It was never something I expected them to address directly, but it's nice that we have an implied answer of sorts. I'm guessing we were supposed to consider it answered as soon as grannybot revealed herself, since she was there the next morning after Cocona was taken by the robots.

Alexander Martin

Last night I realized that Flip Flappers shares a lot of elements with Gimmick! on the Famicom. Not enough that the two are related in any way, but key points including some of the ones you mentioned.
each level is a unique environment with its own ecosystem and creatures
every level has a secret item that you have to find
The item is usually hidden in an area far offscreen or you have to do something really convoluted to get it (flipping a lever in stage 5 that just looks like decoration, riding a cannonball to the other end of stage 2)
You can only enter each level once
the levels get insanely more difficult except for the peaceful final one right before the final boss fight
if you fail to get the item or die and continue, you can't free the girl you're supposed to save and BAD END

Josiah Taylor
Josiah Taylor

While that's true, I think it's understating the fact that she had to be pro-active in demanding that Papika stop the car and then making her own way out of FF's base. It would have been easier to just bury her reservations and let Papika take her to safety in.

Joshua Mitchell

Easton Ortiz

Shut up Mimi, your drunk

Samuel Nguyen
Samuel Nguyen

Easier, yeah, but she was done being rational. She just wanted OUT.

It's actually a pretty common scene in western literature and film, but with the hoverboard replaced with a car. One character has just had enough of colourful adventures and just says "fuck it" and runs back to their old life.

In terms of the monomyth, it's the "rejection of the call" but it also works here as a more direct example of Cocona's fear of change and her tendency to cling to the safe and familiar for comfort.

Speaking of the fucking monomyth, I'm surprised that isn't something we've talked about more considering episode 10 and 11. "Temptation of the mother" is literally one of the later stages of the monomyth, as is "redemption of the father"

I'd argue against that. Papika is willing to explain the situation to her, but Cocona would rather run away than confront something potentially painful to salvage a relationship she cherished. Yeah, it's part Paprika's fault for starting that conversation in the most unempathetic way possible, but running away to granny is hardly proactive

Zachary Cook

Christian Lee

"rejection of the call"

Cocona has been literally rejecting the call for most of episodes 1 and 2. This is not a rejection of the call, this is more like a third-act crisis of faith. Or in Campbell's terms, the "meeting with the goddess".

Alright, sounds fine. I'll probably finish only have anything to show months after the hype for this anime dies away, but I've been working on a project like this for a while that I don't have a theme for. An FLFL dungeon-crawler-ish sounds pretty awesome.

Only thing is, I'm not a very good artist. It takes me forever to finish even tiny sprites. I may need to oldschool it, and do kind of a Dwarf Fortress text-only thing at first.

Luke White
Luke White

To be fair, one of the arguments behind the monomyth was literally "this describes every story ever"

But also, once again, it's not useful because you can attach interpretation A to image B and say "hey look, X is a monomyth!" It's just a framework of image and meaning that is ubiquitous, and thus a useful tool for creators to call upon to make their vision more communicable to their audience.

In this case we a tempress woman, a father seeking redemption and a protagonist sorely in need of apotheosis set up for us right at the end of episode 11, so it's useful to see how the director might be using these ideas to enhance the story he's trying to tell.

Adam Morales

Elijah Williams
Elijah Williams

Fairy tale worlds will definitely be a thing, but I'd kind of like to do a lot of different settings, different tributes (like Episode 8 was). What do you think?

Carter Morgan
Carter Morgan

That's because there's nothing particularly definitive about the monomyth; at its most general level, which is where you often have to apply it to make it fit, it's just a story about someone going out into the world (which is just a good way to start a story), having an adventure, and returning (which is a good way to end a story), with a bunch of crises at every step.

The monomyth is a very helpful guide to a type of narrative humans generally find engaging, but figuring out something adheres to the monomyth is about as meaningful as discovering that audiences like seeing attractive people.

Christopher White
Christopher White

I'd say for a game of this type, your priority should be (besides quality) including all of the worlds shown in the anime.

Jordan Gutierrez

Agreed.

To paraphrase Rick, FliFla is just so dense every single episode just has so much going on. Unlike Star Wars FliFla is actually good, it all works. I don't know how but it does. It amazes me people can't find enjoyment in it, it has something for everyone

Did you just decide to not read my post so you could soapbox more?
My school has a hardon for Frye, so I'm well aware of the popular criticism to the monomyth, that's not the point here.

The point here is that the director went out of his way to personify aspects of the monomyth into characters in establishing the narrative's climactic exigence. Questions like "why did they do that" and "what might it be accomplishing" are important ones to ask. If you get caught up on "b-b-but my professor told me the monomyth was too general" you miss the forest for the trees here

She's slow but a heavy-hitter. In a 1v1 she'd probably have little to no chance of ever actually landing a hit on one of the henshin'd Flip Flappers, so she has to rely on being sneaky and surprising them with one decisive hit.

I think his wound is just a way to make Yuyu show emotion other than smug and make the audience wish for a happy ending for the twins after all.

It seems I was right. This show has lost all its critical status. Only people in these generals still like it.

Benjamin Hall

I think the whole purpose of the Toto wound is to actually demonstrate and show us viewers that the amorphious children actually do have feelings, and aren't as much of a "different mindset" as they would have you believe. His wound reoppening clearly had yuyu express concern and worry, maybe even a tad bit of fear. This might be set up for what they decide to do next.

The critics matter more when it comes to niche shows. Anime like The Hakkenden and Junkers Come Here live through their critical status among the sakuga community while remaining virtually unknown among the casuals. The masses are extremely ephemeral people, they will move on and forget this show. Most people in these threads will forget Flip Flappers by next year. I think it can only be remembered as Oshiyama's debut work but no one knows if he will continue making anime in the first place.

It's not like the handful of sakuga enthusiasts keeping the spirit alive makes a difference to anyone but them either. I mean, nice for them, but I'm not a sakugafag and so I'm not going to tell them what to like, but what they talk about in their sakugafag forums hardly matters to me or most people.

I think it can only be remembered as Oshiyama's debut work but no one knows if he will continue making anime in the first place.

If every anime director that made a slightly underwhelming show quit, there would be no anime directors. He'll be fine.

Jaxson Cox
Jaxson Cox

I wasn't, to be fair, I am an oldfag who only pops in every now and then these days. Why the hell are people bringing up Geass again? The board collectively disowned the series and created the "trainwreck" meme around it to keep normies and casuals who picked up the show away from the board.

I do, but only because I read a lot of philosophy, I am weird like that.

He is reaching hard and doing some crazy ass mental gymnastics trying to tie medieval and early modern philisophical constructs into the show, without any self awareness of what he is actually talking about. He bases a lot of it off of the work of rene descartes, who is essentially babbys first philosopher because he 'created' the whole "I think, therefore I am" line of thinking.

He gets his head so far up his own ass sometimes, that he is trying to tie metaphysical ideas about self realization of ones own existence to the methods used to actually animate the cartoon drawing on screen. It's pretty funny shit to me. He is trying hard to sound smart, but in the end to someone actually educated on the topic, he is just spouting gibberish because he is trying to make connections that are illogical leaps or just straight up are not there- and even if they were there, it wouldn't really matter or change anything at all.

You should really just report any links to blogs or editorial pieces, since the person posting it is obviously either a newfag or a shill. Anybody that's lurked a year will know better than to direct traffic to clickbait.

Something as densely packed as Flip Flappers you can review per episode no problem, especially in the earlier more episodic parts.
If your plot summary already makes up the biggest part of the “review”, you should stop it though. Not that that’s the case here due to how much Chapman loves to hear herself talk and to go on rants about god knows what. (You can usually pinpoint the exact moment where she shuts off her brain completely and only writes to further agitate herself because that’s when she gets even the most basic stuff wrong, like missing the entire scene about them running away from the lab for example)

Lucas Cooper

That amazes me to know end. I will watch an episode multiple times and go over my analysis in my head and still feel like an idiot talking on an anonymous board. Others will just rant and rave like an idiot in public with no hint of self awareness.

The one who talks louder is the one who will get heard in the end. And since journalism pay is shit, intelligent people pursue other careers leaving you with not only the loudest but also the dumbest voices. The beauty of anonymity is that it normalizes the voices to a degree, but yes, like said that removes the social authority. You’d have to take opinions for what they are instead of giving them a value related to their author’s authority.

Carson Powell
Carson Powell

Based on Over The Rainbow, Mimi explodes back into pieces and CocoPapi have to go collecting again. Before the latest episodes I expected this to happen without the show trying to fit it into the context of its normal world, now I’m pretty sure the show will have Cocona choose a school and adventuring will have to take place in her free time.

Cocona was doing the touching in Yuniko's eps. Ep8 took it to another level.

Ayden Carter
Ayden Carter

The most straight forward answer is that episode 12 is Yayaka + Papika vs Mimi/Cocona. Mix in some of the last few Papika flashbacks and backstory as needed to complete the story. But they can't win, all hope seems lost, despite some really awesome attacks and moments of false victory.

Episode 13 is Cocona rejecting Mimi, (I fully expect Mimi to KILL Yayaka, which will be the catalyst for the rejection) which allows the tides to turn. Cocona and Papika defeat Mimi.

Have no idea how they will resolve PI or any of the other subplots, but the above outline is the most likely for the broad strokes.

Kevin Gomez

To be honest, when the Seele speakers came up around Mimi I was totally expect Salt to break into song.

What a let down. I waited and waited for Flip Flappers to finally show its hand and commit to its strongest ideas, only to be supplanted by a conclusion that feels like a different show entirely, mandated by a faithless or scrambling production committee.

Carson Evans
Carson Evans

They didn't actually manage to collect many.
Most of the ones they acquired were stolen. Only 1, 2, 5 and 8 were kept and returned to Flip Flap.
Papika keeps 1 with her, which leaves 2,5 and 8 in the case. The only other shard Flip Flap has is the tiny one on a necklace that Salt kept from 2nd Impact. All 5 of those were sucked into Cocona when Mimi awoke

Given the preview has Cocona in the cocktree, I feel like it's going to go the route of "just kidding ur mum was a cunt" and Cocona will mull things over while everyone jobs to Mimi, and then make up her mind and join the battle to save the day.

Which is a shame. I think the final showdown would've been more interesting if Mimi kept on being #1 mom to Cocona and she actually had to choose between doting mother or being her own woman instead of doting mother conveniently turning into literal hitler and locking her in the world's strangest chastity cage.

It's one thing for her to be the villain, but it's another for her to be a bad mother. Since a mother figure is what Cocona's been looking for all along, and distancing herself from that need for a mother is going to need to be her big turn as a character, the mother figure actually just being a terrible mother almost makes the issue meaningless. It's easy to want to distance yourself from a mom that locks you in a giant penistree, it's much harder and therefore a much more meaningful turn, if the mother isn't outright evil. Because lets' be honest here, that separation has to happen at some point regardless. Becoming your own person and gaining independence from your parents is part of growing up. It trivializes the whole thing if Mimi is just a unilaterally evil megalomaniac

You know what this reminds me of, is kind of like when a book gets made into a film and the reader of the book doesn't like it because it isn't what they had imagined. Most of the negative reaction I can see is from people that liked to imagine the story was about one thing and was actually about something else which they are unwilling to accept. The show went from "you could have 1000s of theories to fit this situation" to "actually its like this". The odd thing is though that these same people were critcising the percieved lack of plot in earlier episodes. Don't even get me started on the "lead writer" quitting meme.

I agree with you, but it also reminds me of FFXV. People complained about the lack of plot in the first 8 chapters, but generally enjoyed the laid back tone, freedom, and characters. Then Chapter 9 hits and they get the drama and plot they have been wanting (obviously at the cost of the laid back tone and pace) and they flip their shit because its not going the way they wanted it to.

Noah Robinson

The thing is, people making these defenses rarely have anything actually positive to say about the recent episodes themselves. It's always "well it *foreshadowed* this, so you're not allowed to dislike it!" It's like they would rather gobble down the insipid Eva rehash it's become than admit that it really has lost much of its magic.

What annoys me the most is that these guys are acting like it all went to shit and is now irredeemable.

Honestly I liked the beginning more too, but I'm fine with how it's going. It's an okay plot to have if you must have a plot, still can't think of a show this season with a better one (admittedly because all the "plot" shows this season are fucking terrible).

Owen Wood
Owen Wood

I have something positive to say- I like that we finally have an idea what is going on, and I also like drama events are creating. I like that our expectations about the antagonist have been subverted, and I also enjoy the general tension of these scenes. The only thing I don't like is that the show is almost over, because this really has been my favorite show in years.

Tyler Gray
Tyler Gray

You *never* see anyone talking about how excited all the twists and turns make them. It's always, almost without exception, full-throttle dread. "How will they ruin Christmas?"

The only positive thing that I've seen ANYONE say about the recent episodes is that they like the idea of an older Papika. It just happens to appeal to one of their fetishes. That's it.

Isaac Watson
Isaac Watson

I think the reason people bring that up is that many of the critical opinions seem to behave as if this was unforeseen or out of nowhere when people that have been paying attention have seen it building towards this since the beginning. Maybe not in terms of small details but definitely in terms of a drama of this sort unfolding.

Xavier Sullivan

Quite a few 2ch posters seem to prefer this direction. I've read people saying it would have been more successful if it was like this from the beginning. That they prefer the second half and it makes the first half easier to understand. That the show did a good job of foreshadowing these developments and that the developments themselves like Yayaka and Papika teaming up to save Cocona have them excited.

The thing is, Cocona's need for a mother/father figure was hardly (if at all) explored during the previous episodes (aside from a mention in episode 4 of a wish she had to meet her parents). While her status as a parentless child may in part explain her lack of aim and feelings of anxiety, I'd argue it's hardly the type of issues most teenagers could potentially relate to and which don't seem specific to her family circumstances.
That's kinda why the "achieving growth through separation with the mother figure" angle the show seems to be going for with Cocona and Mimi doesn't feel that compelling to me, especially when Cocona's never had proper parents to begin with and didn't seem to have a particularly close relationship with robo granny either: whatever growth she underwent, she did it alone or with Papika. I guess it also doesn't help that I don't find Mimi to be that interesting a character or villain (at least at the moment).

The meme first started when ANN falsely listed Yuniko as series composition and then after ep 7 it turned out Oshiyama hired Hayashi to do write the rest of the script for drama. Episodicfags can't get over the fact that Yuniko isn't actually doing the series composition.

Wyatt Richardson
Wyatt Richardson

its just a meme. In anime, it is normal for the director to assign different writers to different episodes based on the tone of the episodes and what the director wants accomplished for that episode. In this case, the director had one writer take care of most of the series until episode 9- where he had another writer do the rest of the work. The director himself wrote episode 1 and 7. Rumor has it that the director himself is also cowriting episode 13.

Mason Ross

Salt's dad ?

Joshua Long

Its not, but its hinted at so hard it would be an ass pull for him not to be. If the child was some sort of clone or PI child I dont' Mimi hesitates to tell Salt about it, and if Salt wasn't tapping that he wouldn't have freaked out when he saw the baby. I still wouldn't put it past elevens to come up with some stupid, "she was raped by Salt's dad" twist.

Exactly! Everything you said makes perfect intuitive sense. Which is why it makes no sense for you to put in the effort it takes to say it. If everyone responded like did, I'd know I wasn't on to anything and just vanish back into the sea of anons, appropriately chastened.

Honestly, if I had thought a little harder, I might not have posted what I did. I was just voicing a vague feeling I had. But the response has been so nutso it's hard for me to resist plumbing it a little more.

You see, people are almost never rational. They think they are but they aren't. There's a chance you're totally earnest and are just pedantically defending yourself from a nonsense accusation for god knows what reason, but it's equally likely I hit on something just by blind luck.

I want to see where this goes.

I've seen some of the dumbest conspiracy theories in these threads I've ever seen on Sup Forums, no lie. I think my favorite one was the one about how episode 8 was studio mandated fanservice, as if a) that made a difference to anyone b) that would even be logistically possible and c) animators like oyashima wouldn't default to exactly that kind of thing when you just let them do what they want (see also: animator expo).

Christian Hill

The fanservice has been pretty constant since the start of the series too, so that claim gets dumber the more I think about it.

Since as early as episode 2, I've cautioned people not to overanalyze this show, especially when it's full of cliches. It's fun so it's okay. The secret laboratory experiment children on top of the classic Eva tropes were like the culmination of their blatant references though, but it's still fun.
