/a/


Almost fell asleep watching the 2nd episode of this. Should I even continue? The first two episodes weren't very impressive.
>>
>impressive
I'm not sure what kind of show you were expecting going into this.
>>
You have shit taste.
Just watch something else. Perhaps Kill la Kill will be epic enough for you.
>>
If you don't like it, don't watch it
>>
>>101362205
I don't know. I was expecting it to be good, I suppose. The atmosphere is quite soothing but so far nothing else has been that great.

>>101362417

Kill la Kill is shit.
>>
>>101362706
The atmosphere is the main reason people like the show. If that's not enough for you then you should watch something else.
>>
>>101362072
3/4 episode rule. If you don't like it after that watch something else.
>>
>>101362072
1/10 bait.

1/10 since you're getting replies.
>>
>>101362768
This, if you don't like the idea of being rocked to sleep by the supernatural, then mushi-shi isn't for you
>>
kill yourself
>>
Oh wow you have such shit taste. Mushishi isn't a battle shounen, its a chill, beautiful and artistic show. The storys,the characters,the music, the animation and art style are all god tier. My favorite thing about the show is atmosphere and weird shit they come up with.

If you want my advise dude, don't marathon the show. I watched about 2 or 3 episodes a week and loved it. I honestly think this is the first time I have seen someone bash this show on /a/
>>
>>101362072
It's not the shows fault you are too stupid to appreciate it.
>>
This is one of those shows where nothing ever happens but everyone circlejerks over it because it's old-ish and "classy".
>>
>I don't like something
>I even tried a couple episodes
>better go make an inflammatory post on /a/
>>
>>101363039
This is pretty shit logic. It's not like the show (so far) is anything special, and it doesn't real deal with any deep themes. I seriously doubt all the people that praise it even understand why they are praising it, and only praise it to show that they have good taste.
>>
>>101362072
It's a very slow show. If you don't enjoy it after the first two episodes you probably shouldn't continue since it isn't going to get any better.

I wanted to know if it improved; not my fault that people get angry I don't like the same things as t hem.

I know it's episodic, so are the first two episodes considered some of the better ones, or are they some of the weaker? That is really all I wanted to hear.
>>
>>101363168
It's one of the most overrated shows on /a/, even moreso than Madoka. Honestly, it would make a better OP image for "ITT: Overrated Shit" than Monster.

>>101363286
I like the second and third episodes a lot
the first was a little weak
my favorite is pretty deep in but it doesn't get "generally better"
So no, if you didn't like the first two, you won't like the rest of the series
>>
>>101363168
The show feels monster of the week until you get to the middle where the plot hits you hard, and a lot of things start to make sense.
For the first 13 episodes you get Ginko solving Mushishi problems that get in the way of regular old life. It's a sprinkle of supernatural to a historical setting, which leads to good characters and a fantastic atmosphere. If the first four episodes can't get you into it, then you're better off dropping it. You might enjoy it a few years down the road.
>>
>>101363286
You shouldn't really expect something mindblowing, since they keep the mellow mood through. Since Season 2's coming, just watch a few more to see whether you grow to like it or not.
>>
>>101363293
Now, now, Mushishit has its place there already.
>>
>>101363293
How can it be overrated when it's the best anime ever made? If anything it's vastly underrated, mainly because of morons with ADD.
>>
>>101362072
I just started watching this show recently as well. Only just finished Ep 4 though.

It's a slow show certainly. I don't think it's amazing or anything, but it's certainly not shit either. I like some aspects of the show, and I can appreciate it for being more creative than most other shows out there.
>>
If you didn't enjoy the first ep don't bother watch the rest. They're all pretty equal.

The third episode is the worst.

I generally think the show gets better. I feel like the first 3 episodes are a little bit out of place compared to the rest of the series. Like the author didn't know what direction she wanted to go in yet. But if you didn't enjoy the first 2 I highly doubt you'd enjoy the rest.

The fact that mushishi is relaxing isn't what makes it a good show. For people claiming that it's the greatest thing ever I'm kind of amazed that "relaxing" is the best virtue you can point out in it.

What makes mushishi good is the way Ginko embodies virtuous moral ambiguity, and deconstructs prejudices based on fear and dogma, or acts as a neutralizer between two benign entities (mushi and humans) when they are incompatible. It's basically a discourse on peaceful conflict resolution and man's relationship with the unknown. While it has a relaxing atmosphere, it's not the atmosphere that makes it good: it's Ginko as a character.
>>
>>101362072
It has it's moments but in general the pacing is slow and it's not that excitable.

I'd recommend giving it a few more episodes, see if you warm up to the protag

>>101364515
You shouldn't put any stock in what children say is objective.

While I appreciate that you're trying to actual bring up valid points and actual criticism (I really mean this by the way), please stop using the word "deconstruction".

>>
>>101364547
It's still the most mellow show you're gonna find of it's kind.
>>
>>101364716
This is 4chan. There are tons of kids running rampant unfortunately. You can tell when you're talking to one when they proclaim their opinions are really facts, when they get upset for someone disliking something they like, or when they insert the word "shit" into a show's title in an attempt to be clever.

Your best bet is to avoid replying to them at all costs. Further conversation will only end up making you intensely frustrated.

>>101364716
Yet you're crying over people not accepting your opinion.
>>
>>101364547
That's your opinion though. I respect that but please don't say this as if that was the truth or had any trace of objectivity in it.

>For people claiming that it's the greatest thing ever I'm kind of amazed that "relaxing" is the best virtue you can point out in it.

Also, forgot to mention,

>>101364719
I do agree with your point
>it's Ginko as a character.
I'm only a few episodes into the show so far but I do like how they tease away his mystique throughout the episodes. Ep 2 for example when you find out that he really does only have one eye and the kids are wondering how he lost his eye in the first place (whether it was by staring into the glowing stream like the girl did, etc.).

I don't think the show is amazing or anything thus far but I like how they are slowly revealing aspects of Ginko as a character through his interactions.
>>
>>101364991
It's not my opinion, it's literally the substance of the main conflict in every episode throughout the entire show.

I might just start hating this show on the basis that it's fanbase is apparently irredeemably retarded.

I'm putting words in your mouth because you don't seem to understand how words function. Let me try and explain it to you.

To deconstruct is an action which a subject can do or be subject to. A deconstruction is an object. They do not mean even close to the same thing.
>>
>>101365700
I would focus on the fact that deconstruct holds none of the associated meanings that deconstruction does in terms of technical meaning. Deconstruct is merely to break apart.

That's why they share the same root word right? Because they mean completely different things? I suppose you'll tell me also that a deconstruction doesn't "deconstruct" things too?

Holy fuck how hard can you play this stupid game of mental gymnastics to try and not appear like a total mouth breathing idiot?

Regardless, my initial point wasn't even to insult you. Was just pointing out that the use of the word "deconstruction" (or derivatives thereof, including "deconstructs" TOTALLY DIFFERENT WORD GUYS REALLY) makes you look like tumblr scum that doesn't know what the fuck the word even means in the first place but they throw it around anyways. So far you've succeeded in proving to be a quick to anger tumblr piece of shit though so I guess my initial fears have only been validated by your reactions.

Is this what Mushishi threads look like today? Is this a harbinger for Season 2?

I didn't label "everyone on 4chan as children" though. I said there were lots of children on this site. Which there clearly are if you've been here for even a day.

That is what I said though. I even implied lots of kids go to a site.

Incorrect. Please learn to read rather than putting words in my mouth.

I wouldn't know what a "butthurt reddit atheist" argues like in the first place.

Maybe stop being so wrong and stupid and people wouldn't be sarcastic and demeaning?

Wow, nice one. You sure told me.

>>101368576
Well it's really not my fault you believe everyone in this thread is just you and one other person you are arguing with. It's implausible that someone else could jump in and respond to you at any given time and say something new. I guess the "dumbest people" thing did apply.
>>
>>101368793
I'm a third party in this argument, I have not made any points that could be wrong or right, just pointed how fucking retarded you all are for arguing like manbabies who think their point is enhanced by petty and unrelated insults.
>>
>>101368833
So you don't even know who you're talking to at this point and you don't even know what you're trying to argue?

Thanks for admitting it I guess.

You can leave now. For real. Just leave.

>>101368757
You can stop feigning ignorance any time rebbit.

Insults aren't necessarily used to "enhance" a point, but rather used when they are deserved.

>>101368898
Yeah, you sure got me. I go to reddit every day and love arguing like a "butthurt reddit atheist" with all my butthurt friends. At reddit. That's what I love to do.

Please kill yourselves as soon as possible.

Ginko rules, don't pay attention to fags here, go on and watch the episodes

>>101368898
You're the one claiming someone sounds like someone from reddit in the first place. How do you not see the irony in this?
>>
>>101368897
There's nothing wrong on my end. I jumped in to say opinions are treated as fact signifying the point where you started arguing with me from that point forward.
>>
>>101364052
I'm in the same boat as OP, I watched the first two episodes and don't really think I like it. I normally do appreciate relaxing shows that are heavy on atmosphere, but I don't feel that from Mushishi.

truthfully, most of us are united against the front of a shitposter with shit taste who is shitting his smelly stinky shit all over a beloved anime of ours and when we raised a stink about it he began insulting us in childish arguments that involved making up shit that we'd said or not said and directly taking shits all over the thread.

I've been watching two episodes per night. Good for late night cozyness. Except most of them seem to be pretty heartbreaking.
>>
what should I watch tonight /a/? Mushishi, Mononoke, Kino no tabe?
>>
>>101370560
Aria the animation
>>
>>101370560
If you can handle the art style and animation, watch Mononoke.
>>
>>101370436
Thanks. I thought really long and hard to try to come up with it.
>>
>>101370560
If you watch Mononoke, watch Ayakashi (the last 3 eps, I believe) first.
>>
>>101370560
Mushishi, it is just a nice slow paced anime, nice chill watch.
>>
>>101370664
>>101370746
I've watched them all before except for Kino no tabe, which is the one whose art style i couldn't stand
I love Mononoke, I'd be hard pressed to choose between it and Mushishi for a favorite of that genre... but I've never watched the Ayakashi episodes
>>
>>101370705
ugh, you are just awful
>>
just because a show is 'deep' doesnt make it good

mushishi is a shit tier show made slightly watchable by good visuals
>>
>>101370972
>lowqualitybait.jpg
>>
>>101370954
Make up your mind.
>>
>>101370887
You couldn't stand Kino no Tabe's art style? Did it even have one besides a regular anime style??

Watch the Mononoke Ayakashi episodes. They're beast. As good if not better than majority of the stories in the show.
>>
>>101371026
I'll have to give it another go, but it was probably because I saw the promotional art, which is gorgeous, and then the show style, the way kino looked, was not even recognizable and quite flat and ugly in comparison.
>>
>>101370887
I watched Mononoke's first arc before watching the Ayakashi episodes, and it was pretty confusing (and I didn't really know if the parts I found confusing were intentionally so).

After watching the episodes it made sense, though.
>>
>>101370560
i haven't watched Mononoke yet, but between Kino No Tabi and Mushishi, Kino is probably the one I prefer, but only slightly. Watch Kino tonight, and Mushishi tomorrow.

Don't let the few assholes one the thread bother you, they're just arguing about the semantics of the English language because they're autists. Shouldn't let the fanbase of the show affect your view of it anyways, especially when it's something as fantastic as Mushishi.

It's been too long since I've read behind-the-scenes stuff on Mushishi, but I think they meant Ginko to perpetually seem out of place because he's a traveler and has abilities no one else has.

There's really nothing special about the show. I've watched the first six episodes, and while I haven't been disappointed, they sure haven't impressed me, either. It's not bad, just far from compelling.

The stories are structured very simply; Mushi can be anything, and the rules that apply to them are just as arbitrary.Yes, this is so the show can explore a breadth of themes and re-imagine a number of eastern folk tales; but I find it hard to care about anything happening in the show when it's in-universe structure is almost completely arbitrary, and a set of interesting characters to create a sense of intrigue is non-existent.

If anything, Mushishi requires the viewer to be largely unfamiliar with story structures to be engrossed; or to be watching primarily for music and art, with storytelling itself as a vehicle, instead of the other way around. This is fine, and it doesn't render Mushishi a piece of shit or anything, but not being able to tell the difference is a sure sign of having an opinion that is irrelevant to any real discussion of the show.

It doesn't help that most Mushishi fans seem to just assert that it's amazing, and that if you disagree, you're wrong, but that tends to be the case on /a/.
>>
>>101364547
Personally, I enjoyed looking at Ginko as a bridge between supernatural shamanic tradition and modern rationalist medicine. Doctor as wizard vs. doctor as scientist, if you will. The problems he encounters would be considered paranormal by most people, but he nevertheless treats them as fundamentally understandable, in terms of interactions between different life forms.
