If anything Nisemonogatari was better than Bakemonogatari.

Working, Gintama, Arakawa Under the Bridge, SZS, Honey & Clover, Korean Zombie Desk Car, Mitsudomoe, Ika Musume, Index, Yuru Yuri, Hidamari.

These are all series that I've enjoyed the second season just as much if not more of.

Same for me, but after rewatching them you start noticing that some of the magic disappears after the first season. That's how it felt to me at least. Season 2 is easily the weakest though.

I am probably the only person that unironically thinks that the Endless Eight was a brilliant and incredibly risky gamble that didn't pay off, but is still fascinating to watch.

Conceptually Haruhi season 2 was better than season 1. Artistically season2 is better than season 1. Storywise Season 2 is a nightmare that claws at your soul for seven episodes.

The thing that gets me every time though, is the fact people will shit on the endless eight as being bad anime, when it is technically superior to most of season 1.

No, just no.

They could have easily accomplished what they wanted to do with endless eight in 2 episodes. Conceptually it was a fucking utter disaster that any creator with half a brain should have seen coming. Artistically it was an interesting concept that was WASTED because of the execution.

I can only imagine people who honestly enjoy endless eight are masochists who hate the fanbase so much they're glad it actually happened.

In fact, that's probably the worst thing I could wish upon any animes fanbase, aside from cancellation, a rehashed endless eight.

Watching it and trying to see exactly where everything is different. When the last episode aired I couldn't really believe what they had done, so I immediately rewatched all eight in a row. Then I watched it again, trying to notice and appreciate how each episode was different.

You fucking lazy newfag piece of shit, go watch it.

Basically it's the same episode 8 times. The cast is 'trapped' a time loop, because Miss Bitchtits McGee doesn't her enjoyable summer to end. Each episode is animated differently with slight changes to the script, but they mostly follow the same sequence of events, with the exception of the first (setting up the sequence to be repeated minus the revelation) and last (when the timeloop is broken because reasons). It lasted all summer, and the threads were pretty funny.
>>
>>100506094
He isn't wrong. This season is actually really good. the animation is the best it has ever been, the stories have more depth, Ash's annual trap episode was very fappable.

I really want to stress the animation part. I don't know what they did to the budget, but it looks really really good this season.

I know this word gets thrown around a lot, but that is just your autism at work.

who the fuck cares what they did differently? it doesn't have any significance. showing a different perspective or angle doesn't fucking add anything to the series you slobbering autist.

Endless Eight is just tedious. It's a poor man's Groundhog Day. At least in Groundhog Day he actually did different things every day. The eight days are way too similar to each other. Nagato even talked about how they did all sorts of different things (jobs, etc.), and yet we're forced to watch them do the same shit over and over again.

And don't even try to say that that was the point, that we're supposed to sympathize with Nagato or something. Having a stupid message is not worth boring the viewer THAT much. You can get messages across while still being entertaining (again, Groundhog Day).

Best K-on song?

http://strawpoll.me/1041338

I used all the insert songs, excluding the nursery rhyme ones, and I included Heart Goes Boom!! because Mio technically sang it during the marathon episode and to have an even 20.
So far best song is in the lead.
