I am absolutely baffled not only how popular this series is, but how everyone cannot see how bizarre the dialogue is, with Tatsuya delivering diatribes on the evils of equality, and how individuals seeking to rectify institutionalized and social discrimination are "irresponsible".


Well.. yes, it's bad, but I still enjoyed it. Between the Sky and Sea was bad too, and I enjoyed it. Grimms Notes is one of my favorites this season, and it's pretty bad. I even enjoyed Sword Art Online, mostly. There are people who love Sharknado.

Now, if you run into people who say that Irregular at Magic High School is an excellent quality show, then obviously we have some people who may be a bit delusional. But I don't fault anyone for liking things that are poor in quality, because there can still be certain aspects that people find enjoyable.

The Devil is a Part-Timer is one of my personal least-favorites.

The only good thing about it is a fun initial premise which it doesn't explore in the slightest. It doesn't even try to be a comedy most of the time and instead just opts to be this bad harem power-fantasy. The protagonist is extremely bland and him being a demon king in another world somehow has zero relevance to his actual character. The show fails completely at everything it attempts and I legitimately don't understand why so many people like it.

Wost than Eiken! that garbage show takes the definition of been bad to a total new level... Aren't you probably going overkill with the comparison! lol



Okay, you got me. I'll put Eiken alongside Black Cat in the Awful in the stomach churning sense category.

I couldn't enjoy it for much of the same reason I could not enjoy Himouto!. Out of all the anime I watched, this elicits a much stronger feeling of boredom, disgust, and anger than most series did individually. I don't consider it poorly made like Ore Ga Suki Nano Wa Imouto Dakedo Imouto Ja Nai or King's Game.

There is a high emotional component for me. I detest two things in my everyday life. The first is laziness, and the second is complaining about one's circumstances when they are perfectly capable of alleviating their (Usually self-caused) troubles with some gumption.

I am very much a proponent of "equality", in that in the terms of social and especially legal boundaries, individuals ought to be treated based on their merits without regard to irrelevant factors. What the author did to enraged me was to simply have the protagonist and his entourage be superior in their morals and logic simply by turning the antagonists into strawmen.

The villains are characterized by their lack of responsibility and violent disregard to anyone else in their power struggle. They were extremists who could not even argue for the tenets of their core belief. My issue here is that everyone who so much as opposes Tatsuya is a hardline extremist without a lick of sense or well versed enough in thought to explain their beliefs and actions. However, we are very much shown that discrimination is socially ingrained and to an extent institutionalized.

Only by making proponents of "equality" caricatures of themselves in some fantasy world of his creation does the author portray himself as rational, rather than actually considering the arguments actual supporters of "equality" would give. If one is going to write a fictional microcosm to speak on social issues, they ought to actually make a world that is somewhat realistic. The author of The Irregular At Magic High School doesn't. It is rather pathetic to take comfort in a fictional world of one's creation so that they can argue and smack talk people who disagree with them.

I dislike the method of argument in addition to its ideological conclusion.

The clincher was quickly noticing that the system that is the main source of contention in the series is solely portrayed as wrong because it ranked Tatsuya too low, versus it is not okay to treat people like crap due to lower magical ability, and especially perform aggravated assault. Even in the US, one will still be sent to a juvenile detention facility for attacking a classmate in such a manner.

Which basically had me wondering "What type of person writes their own perverted echo chamber so far removed from reality just to make their own views seem logical, and who thinks that the system is portrayed as flawed because his mouthpiece did not get the respect he deserved?"

Oh right, a #@$!ing loser. The author seems to be the type youth to exhibit traits of complaintive and irresponsible and believes that mistreatment of everyone is justified on a meritocratic basis except for him because he "somehow" got screwed over. I absolutely hate people like this. The author has seen some success, but if I have to cheapen myself by being a whiny little bitch about how the system is not fair because of my circumstances for some measure of success (Or money), I would likely not. I like to think I have enough dignity and far too much shame to parade myself as a loser for cash. Just saying.

Everyone who knows me, and that's not many, knows I had an extraordinarily bad start in life. I complained a great deal in my teen youth, but you know what? I stopped complaining and got through some of my issues. I don't like to sit on my ass and complain about how crap my life is, when I am the one solely capable of dealing with it. Come on now. The author is like 38. Grow up, please.

Interesting. My main problem with the show is the complete lack of tension, as the overpowered protagonist and his powerful companions easily walked all over the bad guys. It's an action show with meaningless action, since we know that the protagonist will face no serious threat.

This reminds me of Gate. I have a similar problem with that show, even though I enjoyed it overall, since the JSDF effortlessly wipes out all opposition. The main protagonist faces some still opposition now and then, but not organization supporting him. However, many dislike the show because they're bothered by the author's nationalistic zeal, which results in the JSDF being overpowered in the story, and other nations being represented in a poor light.

Another one for me was the Hunter X Hunter remake.

It was fine up until it got to new content....

By the Chimera Ant crap starting I just couldn't deal with the narrator any longer. Never finished that series.

Never understood FLCL or Bobobo.. bo... (wtf ever) either. They were both just too damn corny.

Sharknado is good to watch with friends and have a good laugh at it. Just don't take it too seriously.

Jojo's bizarre adventure.

I really loved the show till they introduced stands. It use to be a show about fighting vampires, after that it basically became digimon. I wanted to see more buff guys fighting, not these digimon fight for these buff guys.

i tend to stay away from shows that give me a bad taste in my mouth, and even then i usually go back to them after the first impression to see if they were really that bad... but one anime, or uh, movie i can say i thoroughly hated my experience watching was From Up on Poppy Hill.

i still don't know exactly why i had such a bad time with that one, considering i love all the ghibli works i've come across. this one just... hit me wrong, i guess. the stupid miscommunication trope that nearly every romance story does at least once had me ripping my hair out and i'm usually okay with those kind of plot threads.

maybe my problem was that the whole "miscommunication leads to misconceptions" cliche was the entire plot line of the movie. geez, even thinking of it now makes me irrationally pissed off.
