1. Gen Urobuchi writes the most unfulfilling anime shows I've ever watched, despite being technically excellent.

2. FLCL is too obscured by its visual style to transmit any kind of worthwhile message.

3. It is possible to objectively say that one anime is better than another. Not everything is totally subjective (blog post on this coming today!).

4. If a show that can be done without fanservice is done with fanservice, the show is less for it.

5. Sword Art Online is a valuable show because of its generally innocent outlook on the world.

6. Miuna from Nagi no Asukara was the worst character in the show and ruined the second cour.

7. Medaka Box and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere are both really fun shows.

8. The ending of White Album 2 ruined the entire show.

9. Senyuu is not funny at all.

no, because it's a KyoAni moeblob that revolves around nothing but fanservice for girls.

also, AoT was shit except for episodes 5-11, which had things like character depth/growth, and interesting writing... all of which was regressed back after episode 11 was over. also, the animation was shit, and what little plot there is, isn't as unique as people seem to want to boast that it is.

Like the "Virgin" label... was so... random?
And for someone who has "Communication Disorder", he sure talks a lot... to other strangers, and overly confident.

And like in one of the episode, that Chess Game... just reminds me of when Ron plays chess in Harry Potter the first movie :lol:

Being a virgin was used as a small plot point later, in which he has Steph forcefully fall in love with him, only to later fall in love with him for real. The virgin part was the catalyst. As for the Communication disorder, I guess you missed the part where he becomes a pathetic puddle of tears when separated by his sister by a mere door, or when he became really shy when "public speaking" when giving the speech.

The reason it reminded you of Harry Potter, and Phoenix Wright, and Jojo, is because those are what you call references. Tongue in cheek callbacks that are supposed to be entertaining.



- He's 18... any normal person would immediately assume he's a virgin... unless most kids in japan lose their virginity by the time they're 13 or something. So my point is.... there wasn't any comical effect. It's not like he's 30 - VIRGIN... that would have been more funny.

- Any normal person would freak out when speaking in public for the first time ever. That scene didn't support the label that he has "Communication Disorder"

- the puddle of tears when separated from his sister has NOTHING to do with communication disorder, it's more to do with his LittleSister-complex... which is continually emphasized in the anime when he keeps putting this 11-year old child on his lap... it's not like she's 4 or 5. what a creep.


Sure, it was a reference. But THE ENTIRE conversation during that Chess Game was AWKWARD... and incredibly lame.

Didn't say you had to like it, just saying that it can be seen in another way than yours.

I can agree with you on that, though despite AOT's lacking character development, I still enjoyed it.

Some of my opinions?
1. I don't like Log Horizon. I can't get into it because it all feels too slow to me. I initially thought it might be all the business and tactical discussions that put me off, but then I like Spice and Wolf so it couldn't have been that. I also didn't really find the characters all that appealing.

2. As someone else has also said, I've found myself disliking the Gen Urobuchi and SHAFT pairing more annoying the more shows I see them produce. Their first work I saw was Bakemonogatari. It struck me as artsy and different, but when I found them repeating that same style for all their shows it soon got annoying to the point I'm like 'Oh great another out of place head tilt with hair blowing where there is no wind source' and I feel like the whole way their shows are directed are to purposely try and confuse the viewer by making the shows seem more confusing than they really are. The only time I haven't had that confused feeling is with Nisekoi. What Shaft did, to me, was the equivalent of sculpting the Statue of Liberty. Their work was interesting and something different to look at. But then all their works after that felt like they were changing the colour up and that was it. The direction and animations, it all felt too samey. Yeah you can have your head tilts and eye zoom-ins, but there are so many it all feels a tad too forced.

P.s. Also, in Bakemonogatari Season 2, Shinobu's arc was my least favourite.

3. I also dislike Jojo's bizarre adventures. I watched the 2012 version and got up to episode 5 and found it just wasn't doing it for me. From the artstyle to the character's themselves, it was all to zany and strange for me. Someone told me 'Wait until it gets to episode 10, you'll really like the main character there. That's where it gets good' and I just thought to myself that there was no way I was sitting through a movie's worth of content that was going to bore me just to reach the good part. It shouldn't have to drag on for 10 episodes to get good.

4. Anohana had 1 glaring problem that completely ruined it for me. Common sense went out the window when trying to prove Menma's existance. It was proven in the first or second episode that she could physically touch people, so spending almost the entirety of the show trying to prove she existed was clawing at my common sense-o-metre like nobodies business.

5. I didn't like Madoka as much as everyone else, either, but I have a whole forum topic explaining why on that one.

6. I don't like tsundere's. Not an anime, I know, but I get that tsunderes are seen as the 'sweet misunderstood characters who are so kawaii desu' when I just can't share that feeling. The thought of one of the female characters beating the shit out of the MC and biting his head off all the time with the excuse 'she loves him, really' completely frustrates me. What frustrates me more is that 9 times out of 10 that the tsundere is the main female, so we see a lot of them, and she's also who the MC ends up with. Taiga is probably the only tsundere I could stand.

7. I don't follow any of the big 3 shonen. Well, I know what's happening in Naruto since I pitch into it from time to time and I play the games, but they're so long that I can't be bothered to start now.

8. 99% of the time I will choose a dub over subs given the choice because it saves me the hassle of reading. That, and a lot of the time I think there are English VA's who do perfectly fine jobs. I'm watching the dub of Eureka 7 at the moment and I have no quarrels with it.

9. I only recall 2 occasions on which anime humour has actually made me laugh. One was the boxer shorts scene from Clannad, and the other I don't even specifically remember, but I still recall it happening because I know there was more than that one scene. I mean, I'll watch anime comedies for entertainment, but they never really make me laugh.

10. Maybe I'm too much of a daft twat, but I didn't find Evangelion to be nearly as deep, interesting, or deserving of the best anime ever as so many others made it out to be. Maybe its because I saw a few hundred anime before it, and for its time I don't think it was bad, just that it didn't blow me away like it did so many others.

Yet for all the things I don't like about anime, it's still one of my favourite past-times. I wouldn't have watched the 300-400 I feel that I have if I disliked it. I might think of some more stuff later but that's it for now.

this, except for number 9, I found Senyuu funny.

Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere and White Album, I've never seen.



Kill la Kill is better than Gurren Lagann !!

I know you didn't say I had to like it.

But you make it sound like I wasn't telling the truth by putting all these evidence/scenes against me. And I just replied back that there was no scene in the anime that objectively supports the statement that he has "Communication Disorder".

I've watched all 4 episodes, so I know what I'm talking about.

I love Hagure-Yuusha. I think more male characters need to be as decisive and alpha as this guy

He cannot talk without his sister present. If that is not a disorder, I don't know what is. And we can both disagree on that. But that is what I think. You also mentioned he was really confident when speaking to others in your first post. Which then I gave the public speaking shyness part. So he doesn't seem all that confident to me. That's all I was saying.

SHAFT was interesting when it was just still Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei..

I've no problem with Madoka though. I like the trap part lol.

Now for me: I'm getting tired of KyoAni stuff.
