serious question here...

does SnK get any better after episode 14 or so? The first few episodes were alright but I'm on 14 or 15 and it's gotten really boring and I'm not enjoying it at all. I'm in too deep to drop it but I don't want to keep going either.

>>100847268
Not really. First eps are usually introductions and they can be pretty easy to fuck up. Some just fail to introduce the show correctly, others try and introduce too much and end up as bland info dumps. While there's often a lot of budget in a first ep and an usually an attempt at a flashy hook, they don't always succeed.

Anohana. Not that the rest is bad, I just thought the first episode really nailed almost everything. Except maybe the first 3 minutes of Menma wiggling in Jintan's lap until he creams.

And then it went in a really disappointing direction, instead of

It became shit because Kishimoto stopped caring. The homolust (I'd rather say bromance but whatever) was there since the very first arc, and yet it was good.

He's just too stupid to realise that Madoka is leagues ahead of anything else he has ever touched. Which I guess is why everything he has made after has been shit and everything he made before it was somewhat interesting but not really good.
