Characters are good, story gets pretty weird. Short enough that I'd say go for it.

Interested because it seems like the kind of series I might enjoy.

You can safely ignore MAL's rating system. Anything that has anything remotely resembling violence, panty shots, or profanity in the subs gets an R.

Major flaws? Other than it butchering the source material and having an anime-original ending?

Well, the characters aren't too bad, honestly. Understand that the basis is a shounen-ai setting between the main two male characters, and then they throw in (I'm not entirely sure why) a female childhood friend (of the white-haired MC). Horrible things happen to all of them.

Basically, this is like the anime version of Brave New World, but with a horribly paced and incompetent plot. Definitely forgettable and kind of tedious to watch. But if you really want a slightly different sci-fi anime, watch at your own discretion.
>>
>>100548849
This. They cut it halfway rigth when things started to get interesting.
>>
Story gets rushed, but I've learned to expect that with one-cour LN adaptations like this. Characters were good.

Is this some epic meme I'll only get if I watched it while it was airing?

No.

It's a show about homosexual romance.
>>
>>100549090
No, the series is just fucking gay

No, it's really really really really really really gay.
Free! was less gay than this.

I wasn't even familiar with the source material when it aired but that is the impression I got of it.

That, and the obvious fujoshi appeal it had.

>>100549090

It was gay.
>>
>>100549090
No, they're both huge faggots. Also the show is shit
>>
I've read the LNs, it's canon gay
>>
>>100549090
No it's actually gay.
>>
>>100548982
More like they ruined a romance with a perfectly fine childhood friend with tons of homo hints which were one-sided and didn't go anywhere.
>>
>>100549090
No really, the MCs are full blown gay for one another. They kiss twice.

The source material has a canon gay end.

The show is yaoi, what do you think?
>>
>>100549157
Except Free wasn't even gay without goggles.
>>
>>100549433
or rather shounen-ai, since yaoi is porn.
>>
>>100548864
This sums it up pretty well.
>>
>>100549410
Well, at least that's something. In the anime it didn't go anywhere, like the rest of the plot.
>>
>>100549479
Yeah it was pretty forced.

They're gay but that's not a flaw, the flaw is that it's really dumb and not that well written.

The anime is rushed as fuck, if you want to get into this series just read the LNs.

Shion never liked her in that way.
The homo hints went both ways.

>>100549589
>Shion made a tight fist in his lap.
>I've gotten all these people involved. I'm the one that did it. I can't let myself forget that.
>A hand suddenly reached over to him. It was Nezumi's. It gently pried Shion's fist open, finger by finger, gently, as if toying with it.
>"We're just getting started. Tense up like that, and you won't last."
This part came out of nowhere, I was pleasantly surprised.

They kissed two times
On the lips
Slept on the same bed


Do you think they are straight?
>>
>>100548982
>>100548416

I thought the worst aspect was how cliched the dystopia setting was. Pacing may have been shit but I don't remember it bugging me too much. There were also a lot of plot points that were brought up and then given incomplete treatment or dropped (Yoming in particular got shafted). Maybe the novels were better in that aspect.

Best aspects were the visuals, music, characterization (childhood friend character is actually likeable for once), and actual well done gay romance. Just for the last two it's one of my favorite anime, but if you don't like gay stuff it's not your cup of tea at all.
>>
>>100549953
I thought the author confirmed that Shion and Nezumi weren't gay for each other.
>>
>>100549953
Yes. There are a lot of countries where people kiss each other on the lips as regular kisses. Sleeping on the same bed isn't gay if you just sleep.
>>
>>100550023
In context the kisses are pretty romantic, though. You could argue for them having a romantic friendship as opposed to a straight-up romance, but they're definitely more than friends.
>>
>men can't kiss each other in a friendly way

This only became a thing in the modern day. Before it was often for men to kiss each other.

Girls are often very physical with each other but that's not lesbian
>>
>>100550018
>weren't gay for each other
>casually frenching each other
>>
>>100550023
And which countries would be those? Not to mention the intention behind the kisses was pretty clear. It's not like I'm saying they definitely wanted to fuck but their feelings ,especially Shion's since you can literally read his thoughts inn the novels, were not just friendship.

As you can see here, the childhood friend was supposed to show how the system had fucked everyone heads. You're not supposed to say "I want your sperm now" to someone you love. That's why MC was so close to nature, in contrast

I love this anime. It's one of my favourites.
Lot of people hate the end because it was completely different from the source material due to lack of episodes, but I didn't mind. The anime has a more open end, I like it. The only bad thing is that Nezumi's last line in the anime implies they'll never met again while the novel implied the exact contrary. I don't really care, there's no sequel anyway so it's up to the imagination.

Also, concerning the homo, I have to say even people who don't like that kind of shit probably won't mind it. When I watched it I didn't notice they were overly friendly together until they kissed, seriously. Though I was pretty pure at that time, now I see homo subtext everywhere.
I remember I recommended No.6 to some dude because I thought he'd find it disgusting and leave me alone, but he actually didn't give a shit. And seeing some people won't believe they were actually gay, I guess it's not that homo after all.
>>
>>100551515
>I remember I recommended No.6 to some dude because I thought he'd find it disgusting and leave me alone, but he actually didn't give a shit.

So No. 6 is not an effective friendship deterrent? Good to know.

He didn't seem like he wanted to go back in Beyond though, more like the opposite. But I agree, it was a nice story despite its shortcomings and no matter how you choose to interpret it was a beautiful relationship.
>>
The resolution of the conflict in the anime was just completely nonsensical.

Other than that, it seemed alright.

Nah, not this one, I meant Nezumi's "You'll be fine." to Shion.
It basically meant "You don't need me". Though yeah, I had forgotten this.

>>100551037
she straight out says "I want your semen" and he still turns her down.

It was gay yeah but still well done as a romance, the ending was shit and rushed though, like always.

I enjoyed it. So everyone saying it's gay obviously didn't enjoy it for what it was meant to be.
