Why is this moe when they could have made a serious/gritty anime with a little bit of cuteness?
Because KyoAni is a one trick pony and lost all of it's true talent ages ago.
KyoAni is shit
KyoAni exists for the sole of creating moeshit. I'd imagine something like this was bold for their standards.
Pandering to shitbags sells better or something.
My opinion is opposite, they could make it a mindless moe slice of life show. Kyoani is very talented doing this, and I like it.
Its an adaption that was turned from a good story into a piece of shit moe slice of life show.
KyoAni can't make original works.
At least it had better animation than Kara no Kyoukai
In completely soulless action scenes with baby tier choreography.
You mean Yamakan, right?
The light novel was created by Kyoani for the specific purpose of being turned into anime.
It's not moe, it's just shit.
Because people would have complained. Just like they do now.
>Oh, SO EDGY
>CRAAAWLING IN MYYY SKIIIN
>It's shit, KyoAni should have done moe, it's the only thing they can
You must be new here if you haven't figured out the tsundere relationship with KyoAni. But then again, you're probably trolling anyway.
What he said.
No, the author was participating in the new KyoAni contest, you retard. Why do people just spout nonsense when they have no clue what happened?
I still wish that they pursued with the animation and the looks of the characters from the original advertisement for the LN.
And the contest winner chosen by Kyoani would be one easily turned into a moe slife-of-life show, dumbass.
KyoAnim that's why. This could've been a lot better in the hands of A-1 or SHAFT.
Those noses are fucking disgusting.
I'm glad they made the characters cuter.
they fucked up pace wise and in the end, it went nowhere.
KyoAnim should stick to cute girls doing cute tea party.
>implying serious gritty animes aren't moe
What kind of idiot are you, go and watch Guilty Crown or Valvrave or another dark, deep anime of your choice and tell me it isn't moe.
Yes, but the LN was in no way "created by KyoAni", you fucking retard. And you're "SoL" claim is obviously wrong as well, you stupid autist. Better shut your whore mouth when you have no clue what you talk about.
The novel wouldn't exist without a publisher, silly.
Yes it would. It just wouldn't be published you fucking moron
The author wouldn't have written past the first volume (and probably wouldn't have completed even that) if he had no publisher.
Guys, stop it. The LN had to exist before KyoAni knew about it, else it wouldn't be possible to participate in the contest. End of story. It's an adaption.
Yet we have things like Log Horizon and Maou Yuusha.
Kill yourself shitposter.
You are just nipticking now.
Those had the backing of a community. Who would back this generic garbage?
I don't see a problem with moe. As said in >>101389793 , pretty much everything can be considered moe. Some people consider Guts moe.
I would have preferred a darker approach with some people (fucking bitch Izumi) getting killed in the end, but that has nothing to do with moe.
Guts can't be moe because he isn't a virgin.
I meant they could had made a serious show with cuteness as well like madoka.
