So what is /a/'s general opinion on Urobutcher?
Good, okay, or shit?
I'm not trolling; it seems like at least 1/2 of /a/ still likes Madoka but you almost never see pro-Urobutcher posts.
I'm also curious about this actually. Considering the sheer mass of Madoka threads on this board I'd say the proportion of people that like Madoka here is a lot more than 1/2, but Gen himself doesn't really get any spotlight.
As for me I'd say he's great. I greatly enjoyed both Fate/Zero and Madoka.
He makes good Saturday morning children's shows.
His shows are consistently entertaining
He's pretty cool.
I like madoka, although I wish it were animated in 1080p, especially the movies. SHAFT must be rolling in the cash after making so many bestsellers so there's no excuse to have anything but the best.
I remember a fair amount of butcher talk in Suisei no Gargantia threads back when it was airing. Fun times.
Even Psycho Pass was pretty good, if a little heavy on namedropping.
I enjoy his stuff, Psycho Pass was a fun ride.
I liked the plot of Madoka. It was very well-paced and surprisingly tight, and the ending was good after I understood it.
>Suisei no Gargantia
That was a show with all the PLOT I could ever want.
Gargantia didn't really have any of that
Saving Kamen Rider.
It had the HIDEAUZE ARE PEOPLE! twist and the I'VE BEEN ON THE WRONG SIDE ALL ALONG! twist, but both of those are pretty standard in anime.
OP here, even I think that show could've used some more work. (Like maybe Gen or some other guy, but just one guy, could've written every episode instead of like four or five.)
Maybe in another 10-20 years they could try Rebuild of Gargantia or something like that.
Is this season actually good? After Wizard and Fourze I am really hesitant to watch any more of Toku.
>Maybe in another 10-20 years they could try Rebuild of Gargantia
Well it has a second season on order, so I'll wait and see how that turns out. I really liked the setting and design of the show, though the plot was a little weak.
Gaim's fast on its way to becoming one of the better Heisei Rider shows.
Some of his stories were pretty interesting but his plot twists are mostly the same. He's really benefited from team working.
Long: Yes Yes
Do we have any word on season 2? I know there was a thing about it getting a dub awhile back.
I consider him above average, but not my favorite.
>After Wizard and Fourze I am really hesitant to watch any more of Toku
I am going to befriend the SHIT out of you.
Gaim as of now is Kuuga/Agito good. It has a solid story so far that doesn't use the 2 episode story arc, along with a nice cast a main character.
Also Sid is a true ally of Justice
He wasn't really on the wrong side because the hideauze were actually antagonistic, but it was also obvious from the that the human society was shitty from the beginning. I guess there's dystopian for the last few episodes on the bad guy's ships
It didn't really have much of a plot because it was all about Ledo's development, which I thought was nice to see, the hardened autist soldier learning how to be happy and stuff. Exploring the setting was also pretty nice, it was like a vacation, and looked great.
When the show got into the later plot with the squids and everything, it wasn't too bad, but it could've been done better. The last act was a rela sudden shift and should've been foreshadowed a bit earlier (maybe I wasn't paying attention), but I guess it tied things up.
I don't really know what S2 could cover now though. Other than more squid shenanigans, which I thought was silly anyways. And with no more mech around, what's he gonna do for the action scenes, make a squid mecha?
Magnet states arc
Fourze was fun but it had some pretty big low points
inb4 i'm a pleb etc
I generally like his works. The only one I didn't like that much was Kikokugai.
Think of it as Madoka but mixed them with some Fate/Zero characters and magical fruits
The unique part about Gaim is that it's probably gonna be one of Urobuchi's few works where no one gets dismembered.
He's pretty good. I think he still has a lot of room to grow though.
Is strangulation one of his trademarks? At least two women got strangled in Fate/zero and one poor victim of the week in Psycho-Pass. Can't think of any other instances.
You never know he might be able to get away with some old school finishers if we are lucky
I like his settings, tone, and a few of his characters, but I find how he typically resolves a story disgusting.
It's still enjoyable overall.
You do know that Amazon was the only Rider show ever to get cancelled because parents complained about the violence, right?
Can you realize already that /a/ has a shittons of people with all kinds of opinions, and never being agreed to anything?
You better ask what people think about him personally, not in general.
Butcher is the kind of writter that heavily relying on the same shit he like and never do anything else, so you always know what to expect.
>Inves are humans
Inferior verion of Nisio.
Really but he is such a nice guy just ask his buddy Godai he'll tell you
>I'VE BEEN ON THE WRONG SIDE ALL ALONG!
Not really. The space farring squids he still considered bad, but the big piece of character development for him was eventually being able to see the difference between the earth squids and the space squids. It was never implied he thought he'd been on the wrong side, just that he felt lied to.
I enjoy most of his stuff that I've seen. I think he's good at making intriguing premises and setting, but he's pretty lackluster at the actual writing part. Plots are always drab and unengaging, themes are always the same shallowly nihilistic crap, only half the characters he writes aren't boring and most get hardly any development, etc. I think there's even some interview where he says something stupid about this.
Kotomine and Makishima are pretty sympathetic.
Didn't Nasu create and write out all the details for Kotomine?
You confusing "being likeable character" and being "sympathetic as person", you can find them likeable as villains but
He was a total opposite of symapthetic.
He just writes the same fucking story over and over again. It's a good story but he should try writing a new one for a change
Uh, no, I'm not. People legitimately sympathize with them. If you don't, that's fine, but your view isn't universal.
Who the fuck sympathizes with born psychopaths incapable of any joy outside of fucking with other people?
I want him to go back to his VN writing days.
He was more humble back then.
Psychopass was pretty terrible before episode 11. I can appreciate that the groundwork for the second half was being laid out but some of that shit like the tomatoes and Oreo were really fucking off the wall in a bad way.
Makishima was trying to overthrow the abomination that was the Sibyl System which was not possible outside of extreme measures. He was doing the right thing, but in an extremely fucked up way.
What anime doe that "Rape come from?
The only thing I didn't really like was SPOOKY BOOGIE. I found the rest to be pretty damn good which was nice since I went in expecting shit.
He spent at least as much time facilitating unrelated murders and fucking people over for its own sake as he did trying to tear down the Sibyl System. He gets a pass on distributing the helmets and on the shit he did for the hyper oats plan, but practically everything he did in the first cours of the show was just his being a dick.
/u/ plz go and stay fucking gone
Phantom of Inferno, Saya, Kikokugai, F/Z, Madoka and PsychoPass are all pretty great.
Blassreiter and Gargantia were bad.
IRC plz go and stay fucking gone
Maeda > Urobuchi > Nasu > Nisio
I'm curious why you chose these four authors though. They have very little in common with each other.
Oh please, Urobuchi's characters all want to munch rug.
Pic related, biggest fucking dyke ever. Spends the entire series salivating over tits.
