One episode in and this show is the biggest snorefest since... ever. I'm going to just ignore the 3 episode rule and drop it now to save myself the trouble if it's going to be like this for 13 episodes. I'll personally never understand why such an unentertaining show is so popular.
tfw crying loli
>I'm going to just ignore the 3 episode rule
>I'll never understand
Why did you bump such a shitty thread
Nothing wrong with dropping a show you don't like, but don't come on here and act like you're better than all of us for it. Clearly something in it struck a chord with some of us that didn't with you, and that's okay, but you should have the awareness to realize this, rather than just assuming everyone who liked it must be wrong or misinformed.
I'm precisely better than you because such boring crap doesn't 'strike a chord with me'. Is your life really so pathetic and uneventful that even BORING SHIT happening in anime is enough to interest you? Fucking do something about your lives you shitlovers.
Don't try to argue with him. OP is a faggot and his thread is trash. So it is and always will be.
>'ll personally never understand why such an unentertaining show is so popular.
It's not. Vol 1 only sold like 6k. It was voted high on here because it's new and people on here like to think they're the vain of anime. They think this show represents what anime should now so therefore they should do everything they can to ignite it as board culture and help fight off the actual popular stuff like SnK and PP from last year.
Trust me, no one will remember this show this time next year.
Yeah, Citizen Kane is boring too, right? Not enough action.
Or you know, there's a decent sized SOL fanbase here
Posting in another IRC=OP NNB thread.
Its sales numbers stopped growing at 7.5k because Silver Link only printed 7.5k copies. The numbers will go up once they print and ship more copies to all the unfulfilled preorders.
>fight off the actual popular stuff like SnK and PP from last year.
That's a fucking shame.
I would take an original I.G Sci-Fi over this shit anyday.
>this show represents what anime should now be
dropping a show is really great just donj't announce it on /a/ you pleb
Because it was good and innocent. I don't like when anime panders to dumb kids obsessed with sex.
Or rather, this anime represents what good slice of life should be.
who knows, who cares. Just be glad they will always be in the minority.
You're right, but that doesn't mean that non non wasn't pretty boring at times.
>original I.G Sci-Fi
And yet Arise ended up being shit.
Funny how that works out.
I don't think it was boring. I would even say that it was too fast paced and there were too many jokes.
Nah, it's still selling way more than this and doing a much better job at keeping people awake.
This is just boring uninspiring garbage
This shit is better than Tylenol PM. That's the only use I found for it. I even downloaded the whole series because I saw positive reviews on /a/. Never again.
I prefer something like Kiniro. It was innocent but yet still energetic and unique I still think the best cute girls doing cute things is probably K-on, for the same reason.
>I still think the best cute girls doing cute things is probably K-on
I personally though Kiniro was much better than K-on, I'd even say even A-channel and Acchi Kocchi were better. I still liked K-on, but I wouldn't call it best SoL
Well, I prefer slow shows. I hate frantic action and pointless fanservice. Kill la Kill bored me, not NNB.
This. I can't understand how one can find monster of the week action or generic martial arts, mecha, gun fight anime entertaining.
Acchi Kocchi was great too, but I feel like it's more of a sketch comedy than cute girls doing cute things. I don't think K-on is the best SoL, but the best of the moe sub-genre.
Oh, I agree, but that doesn't mean it has to be dull. KLK is shit, Non Non is good, but too slow at points.
The only thing wrong with NNB is that it is often too fast-paced. In something like YKK you can relax and just melt into the atmosphere because of the long, relaxing shots of the environs. In NNB, however, cuts are often too quick. As an example, in ep 8 when there's a relaxing scene with Hotaru coming back to Renge and Komari asleep, it only lingers for a few seconds before cutting to the eyecatch. I wanted nothing more than just to watch the girls and the autumn atmosphere, if not for minutes then at least for a little longer than it did linger. If it were slower and let us really settle into the iyashikei atmosphere and relax, then I would agree that it would be a superb production. But as it is, though I like it a lot, I can't see it being called AOTS when the pacing feels so off to me.
For this reason I think KLK is AOTS and AOTY as well, just because it handles itself perfectly. It's never not entertaining.
What a fag. Learn to appreciate all types of shows.
>KLK is shit
For what reason?
I 100% agree with you, OP. I usually have a really high tolerance for boring shows (Hyouka is in my top 5 favorites) but I couldn't even make it through the first episode. It's like they thought of the most boring setting possible, added characters that initially have nothing interesting about them whatsoever, and made them talk about whether they lived in the country for 20 minutes. Yes, I understand people enjoy the show for being relaxing and carefree, but shit, even the most bland slice of life shows have SOMETHING cool to keep your brain engaged and make you want to watch more.
Like, if there was something at least mildly entertaining or interesting to keep you hooked, I wouldn't have a problem with simply trying it out and forgetting about the show. But the attention this is getting and seeing several threads declaring it AOTY makes me dumbfounded.
>Learn to appreciate all types of shows.
I do, but it's very hard to get excited over chuuni mecha action show #23476.
The Birth of a Nation is too slow at points, NNB is not. Maybe I'm just more experienced with this.
I don't know, though. Do people find Fantasia slow or boring?
Agreed it's fucking shit and no it's not popular outside /a/ and 2ch
/a/ would like anything as long as it has cute girls doing cute things
Honestly there are some points in Non Non I felt dragged on, but I was smiling through each episode so I can't say it was a bad thing
>For what reason?
It has no maturity whatsoever. All the humor, the action scenes, everything feels like it was written by a middle school boy. Ryuuko is great, strongest MC of the year even, be she can't carry the show by herself especially when they insist of stripping her naked every chance they get and making crude jokes about her getting molested and stuff.
And many people would find it hard to get excited over cute girls doing cute things #23476, yet you manage just fine. I don't really think there are a lot of "chuuni mecha action shows" anyway.
Well, you're right about that, but I have no idea why you're watching anime if you're looking for a mature, deep production. Or why you care that it's immature, for that matter.
>namedropping Birth of a Nation and Fantasia
Come on now, don't claim to be some sort of patrician lord of good taste who's opinion is objectively correct because you can name old films and have "experience". It sounds incredibly pretentious. Opinions are opinions, especially on matters of art.
>And many people would find it hard to get excited over cute girls doing cute things #23476, yet you manage just fine.
And OP is probably enjoying these shitty action shows.
>I don't really think there are a lot of "chuuni mecha action shows" anyway.
You have a dozen this season.
I'm looking for something entertaining. Kill la Kill is boring. It's very formulaic, badly paced (10 episodes and barely anything of consequence happened), the animation is subpar, plot stupid, fights uninteresting, music themes really overused.
It has so many flaws that I wouldn't even call it good, let alone very good. It's basically worse TTGL, which isn't that great either. Oh, and I dislike juvenile humour.
Too fast for a casual SoL and too slow for comedy. Nonetheless it was pretty enjoyable for the atmosphere and general childlike innocence. It felt calm and realistic for a change, rather than a bunch of lolis bouncing on the walls going "UWAAHHH UGUU" (Which is probably why it's labeled seinen, but I don't watch a lot of SoL so don't take my word for it).
Also Ren-chon is probably my favorite loli in a completely non-sexual but endearing way.
Not that guy, but IMO genres don't matter as much as how you go about doing it. If it falls within the genre stereotypes, only the fans will enjoy it. If there's something different about it, more people will flock to it.
Also there's a lot of anime with deep mature production, just look at the classics or the really pretentious artsy shit.
Sorry. It's true, though. Silent films from 1910s can be slow. Modern day entertainment is very fast in comparison.
Same with Fantasia. Some parts have plot, others don't, but I don't find it boring at any moment. And I hope it's fairly well known among people interested in animation.
>but I have no idea why you're watching anime if you're looking for a mature, deep production
I don't understand this argument, anime is a medium of entertainment. Many hollywood films are lowest common denominator garbage like grownups 2 and shit that are filled with the same type of immature, crude jokes as anime. Just like every year there are some movies which are legitimately deep or interesting, there are plenty of anime like that as well. I don't care that it's immature because I want to feel like some sort of genius who only watches DEEP shows like Lain, I just don't find it entertaining. There's nothing clever about it, and nothing much I haven't seen done better elsewhere. I will give them the fact that Ryuuko is a great protagonist though.
>And OP is probably enjoying these shitty action shows.
Shitty in your heavily biased opinion.
>You have a dozen this season.
What? And I don't really know what you're talking about.
>It's very formulaic
I disagree wholeheartedly and don't see how you could make such a claim.
Again, disagree. The pacing is terrifically fast and always has something happening.
>(10 episodes and barely anything of consequence happened)
We're talking about Kill la Kill, not Non non Biyori.
>the animation is subpar
Not true at all. Just because something's animated on the threes or fours or even sixes doesn't necessarily mean that it's bad animation. FPS isn't everything.
>plot stupid, fights uninteresting, music themes really overused
All very subjective, and again disagreement. I don't know how you can stoop to calling something shit just because you don't like it. You're no better than OP. Here, watch this:
>I'm looking for something entertaining. Non non Biyori is boring. It's very formulaic, badly paced (10 episodes and barely anything of consequence happened), the animation is subpar, plot stupid, characters uninteresting, music themes really overused.
>It has so many flaws that I wouldn't even call it good, let alone very good. It's basically worse Aria, which isn't that great either. Oh, and I dislike cute girls.
>people still buttmad over NNB having gotten more appraisal than their favorite show
Non Non Biyori is my favorite anime, yet you dare speak such insolence to my face.
Excuse me while I cry in the corner.
It's always baffled me why SoL fans, avid proponents of relaxing and taking it easy, are often such hostile cunts.
it's a parody of action shounen, it's super over the top cliches and fanservice for that reason
Carry on, IRC NNB troll thread #87973249423.
We won't show peacefully show peace to those who doesn't show peace to peace-showing anime.
my faking eyes
All I see are people making threads bashing NNB and /a/ and nips shit taste for liking it.
You know what they say about good satire being indistinguishable from the real thing? Even so, I'm very nearly certain that Kill la Kill is definitely not that self-aware.
>Shitty in your heavily biased opinion.
Isn't that OPs entire point? Maybe you should just fuck off.
>Isn't that OPs entire point?
And apparently yours as well. Good job on being just as bad as he is.
>Maybe you should just fuck off.
Hitting a little close to home?
>Good job on being just as bad as he is.
I didn't make the thread, dipshit. I acknowledge that different people like different things, and I don't make threads about how show X is shit all day long. Nice job on being a shitposter.
Get a load of this fucking faggot who can't into a good SoL and thinks we care that he dropped NNB.
Your loss, idiot.
>I acknowledge that different people like different things, and I don't make threads about how show X is shit all day long.
Perhaps, but you post in these threads and argue that things you don't like are shit all day long.
>Nice job on being a shitposter.
Go away, Samefag.
I'm not falling into your /b/-tier idiocy loop.
it's basically "what if $generic_shounen was all genderbent?"
it has ALL of the shounen cliches packed in as fast as possible into each episode
Of course it does, because it is literally a cliched shounen series
I felt the same way about yuyushiki except I did watch 3 eps
Each episode literally follows the same template.
Beat A -> Get to fight B -> Fight C
At the same time, the final boss doesn't want to finish off the MC because she wants her to be stronger so that she will lose to her at the final confrontation.
Of course it's formulaic. It fallows battle shounen routine. It's not interesting, it's dull. Fights are too long. they aren't based on skill nor tactics/strategy. It's just one power-up after another. How is this interesting again?
>The pacing is terrifically fast and always has something happening.
Yes, but nothing really important. Two episodes were blatant fillers (episode 4 and 7). Ultimately the only important fight was the last one.
It plays exactly like a video game (mini bosses -> final boss, barely any plot in between). And this is not a video game.
Yes, the animation is bad. Repeated frames, still shots, looping frames and so on. How is this good?
>Yes, but nothing really important. Two episodes were blatant fillers (episode 4 and 7).
And 4 was one of the best episodes. A fun romp.
>Yes, the animation is bad. Repeated frames, still shots, looping frames and so on. How is this good?
I'm not claiming the animation is great, especially consistently. But if your standards are such that KLK is "subpar" then I don't see how you could enjoy anything except fantastically-animated OVAs like Giant Robo. Or even something like that, since it's likely generic mecha shit to you.
>It's not interesting, it's dull.
>Fights are too long.
>they aren't based on skill nor tactics/strategy. It's just one power-up after another.
>How is this interesting again?
Because it's fun to watch and talk about. Asking "How is this interesting again?" is about as irrelevant a question you can get. Because I like it, that's why, and your dislike of it doesn't make it bad. Neither you nor OP understands that.
>muh anime is #1 in 2 polls
Meanwhile snk is # 1 on 2chan, mal, reddit, ANN, Japanese voice actors and new-type polls.
>Those places don't matter because I don't like them and I come here and this other random poll I found has NNB has #1.
I had almost the opposite opinion. I thought Kiniro was a bit too cutesy and reliant upon gaijin jokes and forced yuri.
Meanwhile most jokes in NNB weren't based on the "city mouse in the country" routine.
Someone's just going to have make another pic of SnK being # 1 in all those polls to counter his faggotry.
His reply will always be
>lel it doesn't matter because those polls are polls I don't like.
