/a/


the only thing I wanted was for them to be pleasant to watch. I think the only relly great thing I saw was EoE on the 15th dec. During this period I was also more active on /a/ than usual. I lurked for at least 3-4h/day. So, one day I saw a thread where the op said that the anime in pic related changed his taste in anime and he now couldn't watch stupid shonen and sucha anymore. I got almost scared and decided that I would never watch it. So in the days before Christmas Eve I watched Outbreak CompanyI chose it because it looked like a fun anime with a very original plot and then Valvrave, which I finished during the night between 2013 and 2014. I'm not saying it was bad, but god it was soo painful to watch. The characters changed from likable to unlikable EVERY 5 MINUTES. Almost like a girl on her period. The only two consistent and decent characters were L-Elf and blonde guy. He was also the only semi-competent member of the "government".

Anyway, a strange and mysterious force made me decide that I had to start watching LOTGH. I started on the 1st january. After 5 or so episodes, I stopped. Sure, the characters seemed interesting, but the story wasn't too appealing. More importantly, It wasn't "fun to watch" the way today's anime often are. Code Geass and death note had better drawings, more "action" (even in a not too literal sense) and the character's plans seemed more exciting, more awesome. Here they looked too realistic. the "animation" made monogatari look like something from studio ghibli. Power Point is better. So I started watching the first ep of Monogatari S2.
BUT...

...something had changed...in me. I couldn't wait for the episode to end. It looked boring. I didin't like the series anymore. I didn't care about the fancy drawings.
I just kept thinking about Yang Wenli and about what Von Lohengramm would do next. Who'll win in the end? Will Lohengramm become emperor? Since when does Kosmosinsel mean Galaxy in german?
So I kept watching LOTGH.
>Ep. 82
I shed a tear. It's the third time since i started watching anime, first was Tokyo M8, second was in the death note ending when light sees ryuzaki.
The Magician Did Not Return, such a fitting title!
Everything became sad from now on.
>episode 110 (yesterday)
NOT LOHENGRAMM!
NOT HIM!
He was probably the gratest (in a heroic sense) character in all of anime.
I will never see someone like him again.
I actually DID feel ill at the end of both episodes 108 and 110.
I even had to stop watching for five minutes or so.
I feel like something in my heart was broken but I can't cry.
This anime is, without any doubt, the greatest ever made.
I cant find anything even slightly imperfect in it.

A few more things:
It's like a mix of two of my favourite anime: CG and DN:
Yang wenli reminds me of L and Julian Minci is physically similar to near, he also is wenli's successor.
Reinhard von Lohengramm, Annerose von Gruenewald and Siegfried Kircheis are respectively Lelouch, his sister and Suzaku. There are just too many similarities, even if you just look at the story itself.
In other words this anime is "Lelouch against L but even awesomer"
also Bittenfield and Poplan are the comic relief
There is one thing I didn't get though: Why does Poplan get scared of Murai at a certain point and tries to avoid him?

Sorry guys I fucked up I forgot the first part:
Since november I had been in what you could call a downward spiral of bad anime taste. I think it began after watching Paranoia Agent.
I stopped following recommendations and started to watch anime only because it was "fun to watch". I started with rewatching random SnK episodes for about a week.
Then I watched bakemonogatari, nisemonogatari, oreimo, nekomonogatari, oreimo SII. I'm not saying they're bad but I wasn't watching them for the story or deepness,
the only thing I wanted was

he doesn't, poplan and dusty just always get told off by murai for going off topic
see ep 100-102 where murai isn't there, and they just keep talking about unrelated shit and arguing in the middle of their meetings
anyways you have pretty shit taste in anime and havent really explored anime as a medium. but at least you watched this. good for you, more people should take that step
dont forget that live action television has GOAT 10/10 shows as well. don't waste too much time watching shitty anime with no plot when you could be watching better tv shows

I'm not sure why Reinhard's death was sad for you OP. Because in reality it was just like it was stated in the show. He lived a full lifetime, just in a span of 20~ years. Yang's death was sad as all fuck because the man wasn't someone born to live his years in war, he was just dragged into it all unlike Reinhard. That's just my 2 cents to spark some discussion though.

Reinhard coulda done lots of good shit for the people if he had continued living. RIP mein kaiser ;_;

>>101042555
Not OP, but I agree here. I found Yang's death a lot more tragic too.

>>101042154

Real people are ugly and they all look too similar. I'll stick to my anime and books, thanks.
>>
>>101042694
Op here, yes, it was more "tragic".
but, while my favourite admiral was, indeed, Yang, I still felt so sad when even Reinhard died. At least Wenli looked like a martyr, like L
>>
>>101042670
He definitely could have, but in the end he would have been unhappy as all fuck because he's not conquering something, and he wouldn't have done anything his wife wouldn't have done anyway. It was still melancholic to see him off since he was there from the start, but I've seen few if any deaths of a protagonist that were so ill-timed yet so acceptable. Fuckin LOTGTH man.
>>
>>101042865

i suppose its true, he really needed something to do that man, i wonder if he coulda had fun doing nothing if only kircheis was here

i could just tell from your blog
entry level favourites and bad typing, how you interpreted things from LoGH in your blog
although it seems like you've still watched a decent amount of anime and a decent variety with what youve posted. regardless i dont know you irl and on the internet i make assumptions based with what i have to work with
still think i was right though
>>
>>101042555
Yeah, Reinhard didn't live long, fixed the Empire up but in the process hurt untold millions even when not justified, because he had an enormous flaw which was his thirst for battle.
Yang on the other hand never wanted to hurt anybody and would be content to forever get away from fighting, but it wasn't meant to be.

Also the "when Reinhard does battle even bloodshed looks beautiful" stuff was stupid on Yang's part.
>>
>>101043065

Not him, but please learn to capitalize.

>>101042154
Poplan and Dusty WERE "scared" of Murai. Everybody was, that's how he kept the staff in check.
It wasn't really fear as much as respect, and the imposing presence of an older and 100% all business all the time guy as opposed to 2 young guys leling.

many people have commented on the similarities between those two shows and LoGH, and seeing as LoGH came out in 87-96 long before those shows it wouldnt be unlikely that they were influenced

Jesus Christ. Who let the 8th graders in?

If there's one thing I am disappointed by, it's that people aren't shitting on this kid enough. Even if it is a bait, usually this kind of shit gets more of a rise out of /a/.

>>101043734
You can watch Gakutsuou, an anime version of Count Monte Christo, prior to reading it. But I have to warn you that for better or worse you won't be able to imagine any other appearance than what the characters have in anime after watching it.
