This is an upcoming series with Japanese scripts, voice acting and Taiwanese hand puppets.
What do you think ?
Interesting idea, but I can't avoid thinking of Team America: World Police while watching it.
There's something almost magical about those old Karakuri puppets, so I guess this is almost like a modern interpretation of them.
What's with you people who try to limit the range of topics on /jp/ as much as possible?
Do you just see it as a containment board that should die when inevitably there are no longer enough interested people to maintain a 2hu community?
Saw the first ep. It's actually quite nice. Most of the fast cuts are in the action scenes of course. Though it's confusing to me that they are speaking in Japanese while the subtitles gives them Chinese names so I'm not sure exactly where this world they're in is.
Hello I am the resident puppet otaku of /jp/
Japan has quite the history of puppet shows, both in old times and modern. You don't see much of it these days but a generation ago and in post-war Japan, puppet animation was quite common on TV.
If you are interested, I would recommend the work of Kihachiro Kawamoto, a famous Japanese puppet animator. You can get torrents of a collection of his short films from the usual anime torrent sites like bakabt.
I don't mind it. It seems pretty novel and at least it's not another idol general.
You're not going to turn this into an idol general based around a puppet group, are you? Don't lie to /jp/.

There is only a few female puppets. I think your main problem would be fujos shlicking to the male voice actors.
>If I controlled a puppet and did VA while another /jp/ fucks it, would that be considered gay?
I think the question would apply more for the original Taiwanese audio, where the female puppets are voiced by men.
I have Taiwanese friends and have visited Taiwan with them before so I was already aware of Taiwanese puppetry.
When I heard JP was doing a joint production I was immediately on board.
Pretty good. It reminded me of those cheesy old martial arts shows that were re-dubbed and that's great.
>That's great, could you keep your drama back on your home board or take it to /qa/ and not shit up this thread?
It's not like I was interrupting anything, we are all just waiting for the new episode due in... a little over 10 hours?
Yeah, the amount of cuts is making me not want to watch it. It might be my association with more traditional puppet theater, but this is near-epileptic.
Is there any place that I can get the original Chinese dub?
