Incoming rant....

The popularity of NGNL. I was walking round the neighborhood, lost in thought, when I suddenly ponder the question of "why is this franchise so popular?" I don't hate a lot of anime, but thinking about NGNL after some time having already finished the series, I began to vehemently abhor the show. To me....it panders to the lowest common denominator, with a sickening amount of wish fulfillment tropes. Is pandering a bad thing? I think so. Granted, it can be stated that a majority of media in turn are wish fulfillment, but NGNL takes the damn damn cake. Person who does the impossible and never loses? Check. Loli sister? Check. Harem? Check. Too special for their own world? Check? No significant flaws in skills? Check. Can get away with anything because he's the MC? Win before the game even started? Check.

I mean, goddamnit...why is this series so popular? It's horrendous.

I agree the series is so average, do people love the fanservice or something.

erhmahgerd nah ur just a NGNL hater, u cant take show srsly coz it 2 deep 4 u

- is what probably a NGNL fanboy/girl would say. I've only ever seen 2 episodes of NGNL myself, the show doesn't seem that bad compared to how I originally thought the show was going to be like I guess???? but it certainly doesn't meet up to the god-tier standard some people make this show out to be.

And also there's just something about the art style of the show generally, I can't quite describe it but i'll do my best. IT'S KINDA LIKE EATING CANDY, IT'S NICE AFTER A SHORT WHILE BUT GETS REALLY SICKLY TO THE POINT WHERE YOU JUST WANT TO VOMIT.

Young children, teenagers who come to my work just to ride the bikes and skateboards in the store, extremely loud people, people chewing with their mouth open, my inability to say what I really feel about things (when not on a computer), people who are roughly the same age or younger than me treating me like a child, one supervisor telling me one thing and another telling me the exact opposite, and there's probably more I just can't think of them right now.

Snoring. Zeus help me, snoring is my straight up cryptonite. I would literally rather have all my finger and toe nails pulled off with a pair of pliers than ever be stuck in a room/tiny house with someone who snores. And the messed up thing is, I snore like a bastard sometimes. Nothing worse than being angrily woke up by your own breathing.

That was NGL (neo green life) and it was an autonomous state.
