I'm trying to sort out how I'll watch my backlog and I notice a few anime I'm not sure are worth watching. I'd rather not waste time watching average anime while there's still plenty of good ones I haven't seen.
So what's general consensus on Shinsekai Yori, Mirai Nikki, and Psycho-Pass?
SPOOKY BOOGIE Only one worth watching
Mirai Nikki is shit.
Lots of people seem to like SSY, I didn't particularly care for it until the latter half.
PP is alright. A second season is coming out soon.
Masterpiece, crap, Urobutcher strikes again
Last third was great, but not sure if slogging through first two-thirds is worth it.
Middle third was the best thing I saw from the last year. The first third tries to be an inferior Stand Alone Complex; the last third goes a little downhill when tries to be dark and brooding about the nature of evil. Also, last third has serious QUALITY problems.
Haven't seen it.
yuno kills yuki and then resets time and kills herself or some shit and then he becomes god and just sits there oh and the one girl was raped by like 5 guys at once and yuki wants to bang his mom
You should watch it. It's not "average" in any way.
Don't lose your time. If you're curious, check the manga. The concept is interesting, but it falls to edgy gore shit, and even though I liked it, it's not that good.
It's interesting. You should at least try it.
>It's not "average" in any way.
Doesn't change the fact that it's still SHIT
Dull first half-two thirds
Turns to trash after the first third
Pretty meh, nothing outrageously awful but I only watched upto spookie boogie before losing interest.
Mirai Nikki is shit and has babby's first yandere, I dropped SSY at episode 8 but it's apparently good, and PP is a lot of fun.
I think it's worth watching and allowing OP to make a decision for himself. Also, the ED is worth it.
Try ssy, skip mirai Nikki if you want, watch psycho pass.
>It's not "average" in any way.
It's for the most part below average that's why.
SSY is good, but its obvious that it was written as a novel and is paced as such. The last third is definitely the best part, but if you're into world building and the like, its worth checking out.
Mirai Nikki's shit.
Psycho Pass is pretty good. Probably Urobochi's weakest work, unless you count Gargantia as his, but its not really bad. Feels like it wanted to be Brave New World and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and didn't really succeed at being either.
Spooky Boogie was the low point of PP; it's right in the middle of where >>100488835 said it tried to be Stand Alone Complex.
Mirai is the only average one and is more suited towards big 3 fans. SSY is the hidden gem here.
I guess my time isn't so valuable that I should drop psycho pass for not being amazing. I'll watch it and SSY at least. Its too bad about mirai nikki, the basic plot sounded like it was up my alley.
>/a/ is full of people who actually think SSY is bad or 'below average'
Shinsekai Yori is a decent show with a glorious finale. The direction is kinda fucked up, but overall it's very satisfying.
Only watch Mirai Nikki if you thought Valvrave was hilarious.
Psycho-Pass is well above average, especially from the second half onwards. Put it near the top of your backlog.
But Valvrave actually was hilarious. Mirai Nikki is just shit.
>i didnt read the thread
Typical nonnon fan.
Yukkiteru or w/e is a crybaby and that's super annoying.
SSY, very good but there isn't really a lot of high-tension in it. The best moment happens a bit too early in the show. But it's a pretty good story and worth the watch.
Mirai Nikki- it depends on how much you are bothered by the kind of realism used by the show. Some of the antagonists are so stupidly outlandish that the logic of the show falls apart. The ending makes it sort of worth it, but it's pretty overrated. Most of the ratings are because guys like cute Yandere girls.
Pyscho-Pass is a really good sci-fi action show, the main problem I have with it is that the biggest reveal could have used more foreshadowing, the ending is inconclusive (with hints of a sequel), and that many characters could have been utilized a bit better.
All are decent enough SSY>PP>MN
>with hints of a sequel
That's because it's getting a sequel.
Sooo with all that, I think I'm just going to watch all of them. I never really watched anything with a yandere in it, so that's my excuse to watch mirai nikki.
shinsekai is pretty top tier
mirai nikki is pretty fucking average/bad
haven't seen psycho pass but I've heard good things about it
SSY and Psycho-Pass were mediocre. Mirai Nikki is pretty ass, even before the animation started slipping horribly..
Mirai Nikki is one of the worst manga I've ever finished. The writing was so awful and inconsistent it felt like it was the product of a telephone game drawn up by chuuni middle schoolers. Psycho Pass was also pretty shit and babies first futuristic totalitarian dystopia. The characters were boring and underutilized and the pacing and exposition made it feel like Urobochi thought his audience had brain damage. It's themes were also shallowly developed while he constantly threw out references to better works like it was GitS: Innocence. Shin Sekai Yori was by far the best of those three but it's a really poor adaptation that misses the point of the original novel. But just watch them all and build your own taste.
SSY has a God tier ending, but is extremely slow to start.
Never watched Mirai Nikki
Psycho-Pass is good, but had quality issues, and it's ending felt incomplete.
If you have to contemplate over a hobby, then you should probably find a new hobby. But if you actually like watching anime, then there is no wrong choice if something peaked your interest enough to start watching it in the first place.
/a/'s casualness disgusts me.
You should watch all three of those.
I enjoyed them Mirai Nikki > PP > SSY
I'm aware of that, but the ending itself is more of a sequel hint than an ending, a sort of way of saying "your princess is in another castle".
Contrast to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games series-- while you know there is a sequel the books end on a conclusive note rather than inconclusive.
Watch SSY and PP, don't bother with mirai nikki.
SSY is AOTY
