So I saw the second episode of Mahou Sensou and wow, they really are going for the generic anime grand prize aren't they. I mean seriously? A fucking gun-sword for the MC that just happens to match up perfectly with his powers and fighting style! The fact that it's named Twilight seems apt though, a word that has become synonymous with disappointment and bland, generic crap seems fitting for this piece of shit special snowflake magic gun sword.

I'm gonna keep watching though, I want to see how far they decide to go with the genericness, like watching a train wreck to see how many people are killed.

There are two kinds of generic, painfully generic and just plain generic. Plain generic is you can still enjoy it mostly even with all the same shit. This is painfully generic as in there is no spin on any of this generic.

Couldn't agree more, It's not even enjoyable.

The MC is already strong as fuck and we're just two episodes in, Don't even know why I picked this up.
>>
I think this is like the only anime this season where I could probably skip most of it and still get the plot.
It's pretty generic.
I just hope some development happens in other aspects, like romance or some shit, because the action and plot of this is gonna be painfully obvious and generic.
>>
>>100408325
I kept debating with myself as to whether I should finish the first episode and just when I was about to stop, a nice fight scene occurred. Watched only for the fights while I made up better shows in my head for the rest of my viewing.
>>
>>100408259
Exactly! It's not even like they've taken a generic concept and given it their own spin, it's just a generic concept executed with all the generic elements that have already all been done better in other shows. Hell I could have gotten into it if they were being generic ironically but nope, they're playing it completely straight faced. It's fucking awful.
>>
>>100408351
To add onto that a bit, this girl is the best looking one so far. Doubt she'll be a main female character though.

Maybe that axe was fucking made out of marshmellows and the sword the strongest bamboo in the world. Deal with it mothafucka

>>100408395
I kept expecting a twist or spin on something going on but nothing happened. It's like I saw a checklist of things that needed to be done and they did all of them with as little emotion as possible.

>>100408479
I didn't even care what they were using, I just heard noises that seem like something was happening watched the movements.

>implying I bother to checked the threads after that god awful episode
>implying there is a good explanation other than asspull or nippon stronk
>>
>>100408644
That's literally just you complaining about one of the few points that doesn't really matter.
You really think that the author when he wrote that scene thought "I really want them to feel like this should be an impossible task only possible because the MC is OP", no, he was thinking "Bamboo can be pretty strong, so this shouldn't be that far of a stretch.
If you're gonna complain about something, complain about something realistic, like how the plot is unbelievable predictable, or how stuff is generic, but not that bullshit.
>>
I only watched the first ep before dropping this shit. also I had to ff it a few times
>>
>>100408102
I don't know if it's true, but apparently notSaber's gonna die.
>>
>>100408839
Is notSaber the gun...?
I'm not in a lot of these threads
>>
>>100408102
The exposition at the start of the episode felt like a jab with a bamboo sword.
>>
>>100408102
and the last owner of that sword will be his father i bet for that
>>
Why does this have Gilgamesh and Saber?
>>
>>100408756
Well good job, you didn't have to see the MC's Twilight Gun Katana that originally belonged to one of the most powerful mages ever who died long ago.
>mfw this is all true
Seriously, I'm not even exagerating.
>>100408880
notSaber is the blonde who kinda looks like Saber from the Fate series.
>>
>>100408901
They said if was she. So it'll be his mother. I thought the same thing while watching it.
>>100408839
No, the childhood friend, blonde girl. Apparently, MC actually falls for the childhood friend, but she dies. It could be all a gigantic pile of shit though.
>>
>>100408880
Not Saber is boobs. Gun is Shana.
>>
>>100408755
The bamboo sword was an anime only change, it was a broom in the LN and it broke.
>>
Even the author doesn't like the anime

>http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-16/even-magical-warfare-original-creator-didnt-think-the-anime-was-a-good-idea

>When asked how he felt, Suzuki replied, "Like I've been jabbed with a bamboo sword."
>>
>>100408944
>>100408963
Oh, I kinda of like her though, does she really die, and can't come back? I have a feeling she died on like a cliffhanger or something, and she won't actually die, and people are just bullshitting like they normally do.
>>
THE SWORD BELONGED TO HIS MOTHER WHO WAS ONE OF THE 15 WIZARDS WHO SAVE THE WORLD, HE DOESN'T KNOW ABOUT THIS AND HATES HER IRL

SHANA'S BROTHER IS ACTUALLY A GOOD GUY PRETENDING TO BE EVIL IN ORDER TO GET CLOSE TO THE BAD GUYS AND STAB THEM IN THE BACK
>>
>>100408963
>Apparently, MC actually falls for the childhood friend, but she dies.

heh
>>
>>100409042
She died in the end of Volume 6(or so I've heard) and V7 ain't out yet, so probably. This seems to light-hearted and generic for some serious shit to happen.
>>
>>100408967
Why are you posting lies on the internet?
>>
>>100408999
>"Like I've been jabbed with a bamboo sword"
pfffthahahahahahaha!
>>
>>100409079
I don't know what sounds more untrue/false.
>MC falling for someone that isn't MH
>That being his childhood friend
>Childhood friend dying in something this generic.
I just don't see any of it as being correct.
>>
>>100409047
whata tweeessttttttt
>>
>>100409047
You don't need caps for that. Anyone who watched ep2 should've figured it out by now.
>>
>>100409092
How did I fucking know it? I mean, even the way interacts with this anime is generic.
Everything about it, even the discussion, is just so generic.
Next we'll be having waifu wars for it, and then THAT'LL be generic.
>>
>>100409164
>Even the way interacts
should have been
>Even the way /a/ interacts
>>
>>100409164
More like best girl arguments, there's no waifu material in something like this,
>>
>>100409219
I don't know about you, but not counting personality, I'd call >>100408458 waifu material.
>>
It's amazing the VAs in this show can actually deliver their lines without losing all motivation because this show is a pile of generic shit.
>>
This show will unite /a/'s opinion, it will do what no other show has done. /a/ will have the same opinion on this show and that opinion will be this is really fucking generic.
>>
These threads are strangely similar to the GC ones. Will we be dropping this every episode too?
>>
>>100409424
Well, if you don't count whether we think it's good or bad, then yeah, everyone know's it generic, That's inarguable, it's not an opinion. It's a fact.
I personally don't mind generic though.
>>
>>100409483
GC wasn't generic though, it was just pants on witch retard as fuck. Still more enjoyable then this shit.
>>
>>100409424
Shows like this can be nice. You go into it expecting nothing and come out with nothing.

You know it's shit so it can't ever possible let you down.
>>
>>100408102
This is Japanese Harry Potter.

>suddenly "you're a wizard"
>Ron and Hermione get to come along as well
>off to Hogwarts
>previous war between wizards with a group who wanted to get rid of all muggles
>purebloods are highly regarded over mudbloods
>Voldemort has been hiding for all these years with his Death-Eaters eagerly awaiting his return
>time to pick your wand - oh look at this special one that'll obviously have some super specific connection to someone evil
>>
>>100409727
Except in this one, Ron won't end up with Hermione
Why in the fuck did Ron end up with Hermione
>>
>>100409766
It's not like they really hung out with anyone else that much with Harry always getting them into trouble. And it seemed like she was always over at Ron's place before Harry got there. Only seems natural she'd go for him when the only choices she's got are the good-natured goofball and the emo-kid hung up about his parents and the guy that tried to kill him.
>>
>>100410169
I met more like why would you write the main female character to end up with the main characters best friend, than why it actually happened in the story.
>>
>>100410169
There was Luna, Luna was best girl.
>>
>>100410271
Luna will always be the best girl. I'm surprised she didn't marry Neville though.
>>
>>100410410
She didn't? I always thought they ended up together.
>>
>>100409727
I don't know why, but just reading that made me laugh so hard, and I needed that this morning. Thank you, /a/non.
>>
>>100410263
Puzzled me as well, but either way we got that god-awful ending where everyone is middle-aged with kids.
>>
>>100410457
Me too. Just looked it up, she married the grandson of the guy that wrote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Think I got that book somewhere, it was written for charity or something.
>>
>>100408479
>>100408537
gaijin sword can't cut japanese folded bamboo, deal with it
>>
Is every Mahour Sensou thread going to turn into a Harry Potter thread?

Because honestly, that'd be a lot better.
>>
Im not crazy but did they forget to draw his nose or something?
>>
>>100410972
You're not crazy. One minute they have noses then the next they're gone. Was bugging the hell outta me the entire episode.
>>
>>100408102

It's literally more Chuuni than Chuu2.

I'll still watch it.
>>
>>100409047
MC'S YOUNGER BROTHER IS A VILLAIN MAGE
>>
Well you can tell from the that promo picture only how generic and forgettable this show is
>>
>not enjoying generic shonen
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
>>
>>100409047
To add to this, Best Girl is his sword.

It's only episode two and hes managed to acquire a gunblade that can also use others magic.

>>
>>100412669
What, did you want a training episode before he got any useful weaponry?
