What went wrong, /a/?
Why was the anime so bad?
Because of useless flesh
I don't get how they ended it.
It had some good episodes. Lack of closure made the ending feel subpar. Would be nice if it got a second season.
Was it? I don't think it was.
Infodump heavy series didn't translate well. The dialogue wasn't handled well either.
It was like spicy wolf but shit. Like watching a crash in slow motion.
Rushed, Used wrong design for Maou.
ed was god tier
2,900 or so sales so maybe. GJBU got less and it's getting a second one.
Because the writing was poor, the characters were bland, and the pacing didn't make sense.
This, how the hell could they butcher her design so terribly?
>Used wrong design for Maou.
Are you saying you DON'T like down syndrome Maou more than sultry attractive maou?
Why that's just ridiculous.
They went for the LN design instead of the manga one you were used too, although they messed up the LN design too.
she isn't as cute as holo
Bad character designs, poor pacing, shit adaptation in general.
It was so bad it killed a lot of the attention the series had been getting, and it's only starting to pick up a little again now. I'm glad Log Horizon didn't make the same mistakes this shit show did.
Korbo didn't /ss/ either though.
I didn't hate the show but I still think they should've used the manga designs.
It would be easier to ask what went right.
>What went right
I can't think of anything
>What went wrong, /a/?
failed to cover the entire story
the horns came off
Season 2 never
Everything went right.
She was cuter without the horns.
Not memorable enough in the ways of developments, characters were good but nothing happened with them.
>What went wrong, /a/?
Everything ARMS did
They had solid gold to work with and they somehow turned it to lead
If I wanted boring highschool economics I'd watch Spice and Wolf
speaking of character design butchering...
what the FUCK happened to the dragon princess?
>Why was the anime so bad?
It was great at what it wanted to be a sleep aid
Don't remind me anon... It hurts.
I liked and looked forward to it. Fuck all of you.
Fuck you, I looked forward to it... but I sure didn't like it.
Why didn't the hero just kill her?
I looked forward to it /a/non,
But you're kidding yourself it the adaptation was any good. I'm still looking forward to the next manga chapter, but just because I liked the manga series doesn't mean that I have to support the shit the anime was.
well there was this, for one. I don't remember that being in either the LN or manga.
They used the more "serious" adaptation of the series instead of the more awesome and comedic one.
Miss, your boobs look great!
I hated how the anime took out all the Dark Knight scenes and reduced them to a brief slideshow.
They didn't go with the manga. Goddamn, the manga handled everything so well but the anime was just horrible.
I don't really get what's going on in the raws.
Why is the blue demon king usurper dude utilizing the same kind of techniques the hero is?
>They used the more "serious" adaptation of the series
I didn't make it past 3 episodes of the anime. What did they do with the best girl, female magician?
It had some decent backgrounds. The OST was decent. The character designs weren't great but they weren't terrible.
Where it really went wrong was with how discontinuous the plot felt. I don't know if this is a flaw of the source material, or the fault of the adaptation.
I think he meant the opposite.
>they weren't terrible.
Fire dragon princess.
Read the manga, disregard the anime.
Watch the opening only for a nice little perk.
It was the adaptation's fault. The manga handled it very well.
Well, on average they weren't terrible. Better?
>GJBU got less and it's getting a second one
not enough moe
too much boring ass economics shit
Am I the only idiot here or did any other anon not get what the hell was happening at the end of the anime with the merchant changing the currency to wheat or something along those lines (my memory of the show is a bit blurry.
Also, the maid's speech was the best part of the whole show.
Central was undergoing inflation as wheat was being bought out by Union, which meant that its price kept growing which in turn meant that Central's coin kept losing value because they could buy less and less wheat (a necessity) with it.
Basically, he bombed the economy. This was partly in order to cripple their military potential, force them to buy the potatoes he bought from the Three Nation Alliance in order to not starve (with the ensuing cultural implications of admitting its not demon food) and helping the Three Nation Alliance's own competing currency to gain traction.
To put it in simple terms, he rised the price of wheat so high above the value of Central's coin that wheat became a more reliable trade currency than the coins themselves.
Because it's a gimmick.
I told you this years ago, but you scoffed at me. It's a gimmick.
It was born from a bunch of 2chan douchebag shitposters laughing like kindergarteners at their supposed brilliance.
>LOL XD WHAT IF THE HERO COMES TO KILL THE DEMON QUEEN BUT THEN SHE TAKES OUT SOME ECONOMIC CHARTS AND STARTS SHOWING HIM HOW ECONOMICS WORK
>IT'S A FANTASY WORLD BUT SHE'LL USE REAL WORLD ECONOMICS THAT'S SO XD
>GUISE GUISE GUIS THIS IS THE MOST XD THING I'VE EVER HEARD THIS IS SOO KEWL AND FUNNAY
Basically, you were watching a Gaia-level idea made into a Gaia-level anime.
Fuck you, /a/.
Fuck you for not believing me.
Fuck you for looking down on me.
I fucking knew what this was even when you didn't.
It was a fucking gimmick that only 12-year-olds and fat manchild who have the minds of 12-year-olds would find entertaining.
but y u mad tho?...
Fuck you. You got a shit anime, while I get to look down on you. Enjoy your gimmick, faggot.
Says the guy that can't tell the difference between 2ch and 2chan.
Lets forget about it and talk about the LN, manga, or Log Horizon.
Those are gimmicks too.
Oh I see, thanks for that anon.
Shut the fuck up. /a/ likes to pretend that 2ch. is the Japanese reddit, but the fact that you're lapping up their shit means that you're no better.
How does that make it bad?
Shut up. Gimmick is just another word for bad.
Gimmicks =/= ideas or stories.
You can't build anything off a gimmick. A gimmick is something that seems fun for five seconds, but can't carry a real story.
ARMs completely sucks at adapting light novels.
Look what ARMs did to Samurai Girls.
The anime adaptions were pretty much 98 percent anime original material and the character's personalities, background, and even AGE were changed for the anime.
Don't try to blame the adaptation, faggot. The source material is a piece of shit gimmick, too.
I liked it.
I can see why it's not really popular though.
No, ARMS is just a shit studio.
It was a pretty good adaptation of the LN. If you were expecting the manga when they said they're doing the LN it's your own fault.
Don't try to pretend you've read the LN, especially not if you're going to pretend that super-rushed piece of garbage was accurate.
So basically, your trolling revolves around repeating the word "gimmick" a lot in lieu of any argument. You sound like the hambeast that stalks T-M threads with "insertfag".
