You lied, /a/. You tricked me. You said this was good. That's the last time I take a recommendation from you seriously, it's just Boku no Pico all over again.

Too bad since they drop the romance subplot (the only thing the show had going for it by that point) nearly as fast as you did.
>>
>>100277254
I honestly didn't like it until the end of the first season.
I started watching it as something to kill time, but I ended up liking it more and more.

He probably means second cour. Pretty sure the whole show aired in one run.

Even if she didn't agree to help him, he would have met Yamazaki anyway, and that might have saved him.

The manga was way better. The anime kinda sucks in comparison to me now really. The manga furthers the story and makes the entire series much more worth while and gives it more depth. Re reading it now actually.

Agreed, one of the best reasons to watch the show.
>>
>>100278359

The manga is terrible. The LN and anime characters have realistically broken personalities; in the manga they're simply caricatures of mental issues rather than human characters.
>>

>>
>>100278202

Yamazaki alone did more for him than anyone. If bitch wasn't around, he probably could have gone to the farm with Yama and plowed qt2d farmgirls all day while milking cows and driving combines and shit.
>>
>>100278499

Anime didn't have super masturbation time.
>>
>>100278359
I think Misaki is a lot better in the anime. She was a much more likable character, she just wanted to feel needed by somebody.
>>
>>100278505
Yamazaki and Misaki were both pretty awesome friends. I liked how they got him to not commit suicide by calling him worthless... cause it's true.
>>
>>100278455
This is probably taken out of context. A shame, because I would love a guys only no girls allowed type sausage festival anime where they just shit on ladies.
>>
>>100278455
He did betray his ideals though.
>>
>>100278559
That's because he didn't really believe in them in the first place anyway.
>>
>>100278492

At no point besides the Senpai arc was there any hint of romance. Satou, despite loving him some CP, had no intention of ever fucking Awful Girl. Relationships do not equate to romance. You have a relationship with friends(hah) with your mom, your dad, and I don't think you want to romance any of them, do you?
>>
>>100278492
>implying misaki didn't only hang around satou because hes a worthless neet so she could feel better about herself..

You're trying to argue semantics instead of my point.
>>

>Everyone's just crazy

>Not even funny

Punpun is the better suicidal hikki manga
>>
>>100278527
True. It would've been great if the anime had that too.

Still, the characters in the manga were bad, especially Misaki.
In the manga she was the epitome of you're typical 3DPD bitch, whereas in the LN and the anime she was depicted as a really broken girl.

Also, the MMO arc was inferior to the Anime adaption.
>>
>>100278637
But no one implied that.
>>
>>100278552

He was in the middle of one of his rants. I don't remember which one, but it was probably after getting brushed off by VA girl again and getting blitzed with Satou. There's a few of those types of scene, i think it's about halfway through.

The manly NEET sausage fest anime would be magnificent though with those two characters.

Actually, in the novel, that's pretty much what it is. Those two running around having adventures, there's not much Misaki or anyone else. Which is why it's super superior.
>>
>>100278679
The MMO arc was shit in the anime so I can't imagine what the manga is like.
>>
was hitomi sad when she got dumped and asked satou if he was happy it happened because she was lonely or because she genuinely liked satou
>>
Yamazaki was more interesting in the book

His flaws were a lot more visible and you could really get a good feel of him and Satou's parasitic friendship

Lonely, and remembered that Satou was the only person to ever hang around her and listen to her wacky bullshit. Sometimes even a longshot reach is better than no reach.

I thought it was amazing when I first saw it, but looking back, It's not that much of a masterpiece.
I reading the ln now though.

NHK's not bad, but the manga's infinitely better.
The anime hacks off significant plot points, including the latter half or more of the manga. There's no crazy shit in the manga like there is at the end of the anime.
>>
>it's just Boku no Pico all over again.
Nobody took this thread seriously, right?
>>
>>100279116
>Cried a few tears

Nigga did you forget the train departure scene when Yamazaki has to go back to home? Sato is yelling that he is not going home a loser and they will finish the game? The emptyness and suffering that ensues as Sato passes by the empty room next door and starts to have a breakdown?

I have genuinely cried bitch tears at this part. This series hit too close to home.

you mean the manga adds a lot of plot all the main plot points are in the anime, try reading the novel sometime.

The NEET life is a luxury, only to be enjoyed by the lucky few without responsibility. There are those of us who simply cannot afford that lifestyle and have to work in order to survive.

I remember being absolutely miserable as a NEET, so why do I miss it so much?

I was a NEET for 10 years straight. Now I got my shit back together and got a part time job and enrolled into university. I look back sometimes, it was an important part of my evolution. I regret nothing.

I want to watch anime that'll make me feel for the characters.

But then I get engrossed in the anime world and become even more depressed. It's why I can't watch Eva a second time.

Does anyone else have a similar problem?

>>100279263

Dude there are so many moments in this series I cried bitch nigga tears. Fuck you for bringing that shit up. that was one of the worst.

Time to rewatch the series and get drunk. Wish me luck anon, I don't know how far ill get into this before either breakdown or blackout.

I'm almost tempted to but everyone who reads that shit is an insufferable cunt. I don't even watch/read any manga or anime that's not a long-standing RSS subscription. I'm only in /a/ by accident and saw a thread about something I'd actually seen and read years ago.

Are you guys aware that you're now obsessed with fucking slice-of-life and girlband animes? What the hell happened? Things were nasty when Lucky Star and Haruhi were out but how did you go from bashing that shit to devoting 90% of the board to it?

I think it's safe to say that Japan is a miserable and fucked up place to live in where society forces conformity upon you. I mean all countries have their shortcomings but anime always makes it seem so depressing.

You're wrong.
Responsibility isn't a burden. It's a privilege.

It means you've been given something in life that you actually care about.
People don't work because "they have to". They do it because they want to keep what they have.

I already have. I haven't read anything Japanese newer than 1900 ever. Most of it a lot older than that.
>>
>>100279473

In terms of goodness, the novel is the way to go. As I said up there, it's mostly just Yamazaki and Satou having adventures while fucked on legal hallucinogens and dissociates.

the anime is second of course, it covers main plot points, and adds a bit to it. I think it's good, showing the people and their fucked up boring lives. It shows it's not just Satou fucking up, it's everyone, and that makes it...somehow more human?

>>100280018

Literary value is a bullshit term. If it entertains, it's a good book. If it provides information that isn't total bullshit, it's a good book. I measure my literary value by how much FUCK YEAH I get from my Warhammer novels. To me, they have more literary value than most anything else, simply because I enjoy them.
