So uh...What am I supposed to watch now? I tried to catch up on kill la kill but it just felt like pointless drivel after finishing this up. Am I doomed to forever compare any anime to LoGH now? what's the point of even keeping up this hobby if I feel like i've already seen the pinnacle?

LoGH is only one pinnacle. You won't find much else with such a large story and cast of characters and with as good dialogue or grand themes of that type. There are other pinnacles though. Pinnacles of animation, stylization, action, mecha, smaller personal stories, etc.

All the "geniuses" in the show just point out what is apparent to the viewer or any other retard and all the other generals are arrogant and retarded. I guess it makes sense though as the goal of the show is to make the viewer feel intelligent.

I'm not saying any of the characters in this show were genius. Nor do I think the show made me feel intelligent. It did make me feel though

I do however think the show tells a great story with a great range of emotions and a great cast of characters. I honestly think it's the best anime I've ever seen, though that may be because I haven't seen enough yet.

Can we discuss Reinhard's motivations? I don't get him.

Was his obsessive desire for conquest a way to cope with Kircheis death and his sister's rejection of him? Why was he unable to make friends? Did he realize before his death that he artificially prolonged a terrible war for years on end?

his desire for conquest was fueled as a child when Annerose was taken away. He thought that the only way to get her back was to conquer space. The only reason he kept it up after kircheis's death was because kircheis's last words were literally "become the ruler of space"

I felt like lutz's death was unnecessary. He could have went back with Reinhard on the ship and survived. He only held up the troops for like what? 30 seconds.

He could've just ended his political career after the Kaiser died, though.

Having a tiny penis doesn't mean you're ambitious it's just a requirement for it.

>>100805766

That was my first post in the thread. The claim that there are plenty of shows better than LoGH and that it's not that great is simply false. There are definitely some shows that are arguably superior but to claim that it's not high up there is merely fallacious.

Among his kind that think LoGH is nothing special is Bear, who thinks that One Outs, K-ON, and Clannad are easily better than LoGH because he likes them more.

People that say LoGH ruined anime for them are as bad as people that try to say it's shit or that it's not very good.

It was a miracle that something like it was made. It's 110 episodes of people talking and you can tell the budget was spread thin. In some of the movies there's 3D maneuvering and pretty good animation that's missing from the main OVA. That stuff isn't the point of the series though. It's the mixture of emotional moments and its documentary-like historical nature spread across a war with many very interesting characters put in situations that test them. The dialogue was perfect and if it wasn't interesting on a "philosophical" level then it was funny or entertaining on other levels. As Hox said, it's more like Romance of the Three Kingdoms in space than anything else.

In any case, it is one of the best anime out there, but you can't really call it the pinnacle of anime. I wouldn't call anything the pinnacle of anime though. You can say that there's hardly anything else like it in anime and that you probably won't see anything else like it again, at least not with as wide a scope.

Come on, that's bait I hope?

Code Geass was a super-enjoyable show that you shouldn't take too seriously and just a straight up trainwreck in it's second season

Hajime no Ippo and Major are great sports series but not 10/10 stuff.

Ano no Hana was pretty sad and stuff and I'd rate it pretty high as well, but never higher than LoGH.

Steins;Gate was enjoyable as well, but TUTURUU~ for the first 17 episodes wasn't that great.

Clannad, TM8.0 and K-on I haven't seen, but I honestly don't see how they could be that great.

Obviously, OPINIONS etc. but still, you can't really say that those shows were objectively better then LoGH.

I'm OK with this, but then, none of the anime in that 3x3 are anywhere in the general vicinity of LoGH, so your naming just a few (and objectively bad ones at that) seemed to indicate you were talking about the 3x3 being shit (which it is) because of those titles, regardless of context.

Only the not taking it too seriously part is right, but that's inherent to the material. The rest is wrong, since the second season had positives you won't find in other shows.


>Steins;Gate was enjoyable as well, but TUTURUU~ for the first 17 episodes wasn't that great.

That's just your problem.

>Clannad, TM8.0 and K-on I haven't seen, but I honestly don't see how they could be that great.

Depends on your interest level.

You can't even say that LOGH is objectively better than them either.
>>

It's funny you would say that since LOGH doesn't use its 3D space battles correctly and reduces everything to 2D fleet maneuvers.
