Nobody actually disliked this, right? You guys are just being contrarian, right?
I mean it really was very well made, and it had a coherent, clever over-arching plot with sensible character development and a satisfying ending. That really is a rare thing in anime.
fuck off hipster faggot
best girl coming through
Just watched the first 2 episodes, and I like it so far.
The last two episodes are really what made this show a masterpiece.
Why is that haircut so ugly?
Is that woman a whore or something? Only they could have something like that on their heads, and not be ashamed.
Pretentious hipstershit with bad art and animation
i got bored half-way through
Agree 100%. I was worried the show wouldn't have a concrete ending and it would just be another loop he lived through without any resolution or development.
The direction they went was really interesting though. The protagonist was an immature dick and instead of coddling his immaturity (as some shows tend to do) events forced him to confront it and mature as a person.
Really? Bad compared to what?
Yeah I had to force myself through but believe me it is worth it. It's one of those shows that gets better as it continues.
Just finished it yesterday. The only part of it that I didn't love was the three clubs bit. I thought the Kaori episode was boring and I really hoped that the Keiko episode would've delved more into Akashi.
That said, I loved it. Akashi-san is love.
Only Yuasa anime I didn't like, dropped around episode 7.
The plot and characters were awful.
Too long and dragged out, honestly, could have done with 7-8 episodes.
I liked Tatami Galaxy but /a/ treats it like the greatest thing ever and I don't agree with that. But that's entirely personal preference.
just bite the bullet and finish it fagget
I only got around to watching it the other day and I felt bad for not having watched it sooner. Great show, loved the whole thing, would put on my 3x3 if I were bothered to make one.
Probably my favourite anime. Shit shook me real hard as I was drifting aimlessly through life.
It was basically like NHK on crack, so I Ioved it
It's a solid 8/10.
That's all, really.
that's the opposite of how most of /a/ feels though
Much more satisfying ending I think.
Well, at least she is loved by someone
It's almost like the show has a positive message in addition to being relatable, pretty to watch, and highly entertaining.
Please do not bully best girl.
>le amusingly large appetite face
>so fanny so YOUnique
What release should I go with for this? Elysium?
No, it's good. It's actually anime, though, so casuals won't like it because it isn't just an animated movie/TV show like GiTS or Cowboy Bebop, but actually uses the medium of animation as part of its vision.
What are you even talking about?
Either this or Katanagatari.
Second best show of 2010. Almost as good as Sora no Woto.
That's Asian food though. You have to eat loads of it or else you'll just be hungry again in an hour.
The only part of that show I liked was the op. I guess I can admire it for how unique it's style is but that's about it. I just found it boring, I couldn't tell you any of the plot because I just couldn't pay attention. The show is only 10 episodes long but it felt longer than LoGH.
You some kind of newfag? TG's in all the "best anime" threads. People who don't like it or even troll it are in the minority. It's in the same charts with Eve no Jikan, Mushishi, Spice * Wolf, YKK, etc.
It's NHK with a creative and motivated protagonist, instead of mentally ill and lazy.
wow this sure is saying a lot
This just in: different people have different tastes.
It was one of the few anime I liked enough to buy with actual money, but I think I would have gotten bored partway through if the artstyle wasn't so interesting.
Also the mini-episodes are great
So nothing like NHK at all.
Those two shows do take advantage of their medium they're bad examples. a better examples are Monster, death note and LoHG
Tried watching this but couldn't get past the animation. Just so fucking off to me, I don't know.
>not taking advantage of its medium
Would've been outrageously expensive to produce a live action version of the show. Without the medium it would have never been made.
Its one of the few 10/10s I gave out, but if you don't understand how people could dislike it then you're an idiot.
People hating it, on the other hand, I don't understand.
It would have still been sci fi novels/precursor to LNs, medium it takes advantage about.
People who disagree with me are idiots. I'm a firm believer in this maxim and that's just how I live my life.
If you disagree, well guess what? You are an idiot. Checkmate buddy.
why is it that whenever anything, not just anime, tries to be different, to push the envelope of whatever medium it is in, assholes like this guy cry "hipster shit"?
the soundtrack resonates with my soul
I finished it last night
I didn't hate it, but I certainly did not like it or think it was especially good for that matter, I can see why a lot of people like it especially when the main character panders to you
The best part was the OP and ED
Because most of the time they are shit and the only people attracted to them are hipsters because it's trying to be special and different just like them.
I don't know what jap tv shows were like in the 90s but im from the uk and in the 70s we made I Claudius and I reckon you could of made logh in a similar style.
so you're saying being different is a bad thing? You prefer being a sheep like everyone else?
Learn to capitalize you fucking dolts.
They could have just done it like the original Star Trek, or even the average SciFy Channel show. Most of what makes that show good are the character interactions, not the action.
Cowboy Bebop is too much like a Western movie. The scene of Spike falling in slow motion while Church Latin plays in the background is straight from Francis Ford Coppola's playbook. The action sequences are likewise just lifted from movies. The main thing Bebop can be praised for is that it had that kind of visual impact for a much lower price than a movie, and for a longer running time, but none of the direction in it is original. I guess you can give Watanabe credit for synthesizing those techniques into anime effectively.
make me. pressing shift is too much of a bother so fuck you.
>Clever over-arching plot
>Sensible character development
Did we watch the same show?
Personally, I love it. It's my 3rd favorite tv anime behind NGE and Utena. Of course, I understand why someone would dislike it though.
You give me an impression of /v/ermin who tries to be accepted by watching 'mature anime for mature people like myself'. I'm out.
You might want to work on your reading comprehension, retard.
I said liking something that is ONLY 'different', and not good, is a bad thing.
The capital letter at the beginning of the sentence gives the reader a visual cue as to the beginning of the new sentence. Particularly when reading aloud, this cue helps us to anticipate where we will have a chance to breathe more than just the period. Neglecting its use out of lassitude shows a lack of regard for your reader and makes them less likely to entertain your arguments.
I was thinking more of the special effects, like I can't imagine the teddy bomber episode non animated nor the space trucker episode abd especaily the episode with the floating retarded guy in the future faurgroubd.
Because hipsters flock to those series and tell how it's amazing and how other people are tasteless plebeians for not liking it. Then they jack each other off.
You'd be surprised. But its a moot point, since I doubt they'll ever try making a live action adaptation.
so you're saying novelty doesn't have a value in its own?
I'm just ficking with you I don't care about your opinion
Akashi would have been so more interesting if she had gotten some more development. Instead she just stays as the kuu-as-fuck mysterious love interest until the end and that's pretty much it.
As such she'll always be inferior to Hanuki.
Well it was realistic in the sense that ultimately he had to man up and make the move to initiate a relationship.
> Story was unoriginal and kinda boring.
> Animation and graphics are shit.
Why should i like this hipster piece of crap?
one of those shows I respect as good but didn't personally enjoy much
Yeah, in the end she was pretty much a tool to give him some character development.
Quality > Originality
That doesn't mean the show itself is shit, though. hipsters are practically like the "mainstream." The only difference is hipsters do it to feel superior while most of the time they don't even understand the work they are supposed to be admiring. I really hope this hipster thing dies down soon because it further shoos away people from avante garde or whatever they're called works of art that actually deserve to be appreciated by everyone.
A 'real' person admires something because he truly admires it and is not dependent on others' opinions.
>I think it's good but I didn't like it
This shit has never made sense to me.
Every character in a piece of fiction is a tool to serve the plot.
No need to get upset about it.
Sometimes you recognize the objective quality of something, even if it doesn't fit with your personal tastes.
It shows self-awareness.
What about slice of life shows?
it is like watching endless eight and then disappearance. The last 2eps were fucking great. The club of the week shit and then him meeting the fortune teller, not so good.
majority would have drop this shit if they are watching it weekly as it air.
I watched this a month ago, are the threads alway this chaotic?
Please /a/ get along good, do a effort please!
Yes. This is basic stuff man didn't you pay attention in high school English?
It's alright if you didn't, that shit was pretty boring.
Every /a/ thread is this chaotic, I don't know why you expected this one to be different
It's in my top 5, and for anything else who's into stuff others would consider pretentious I must recommend Kemonozume as well.
Another shit quality title why tries to defend itself by being 'original'
>Finished Tatami Galaxy last night
>Didn't like it
>Was gonna start Kemonozume tonight
Into the backlog it goes
Kemonozume's storyline is pretty straight forward honestly. It's not like its direction is even very different, besides the rotoscoped fish. Pretty good anime either way.
I meant shit animation quality. My bad.
Most of them are civil enough here everyone call each other a /v/tard and such
It was alright, by far the worst Yuasa show though.
Kemonozume > Kaiba > Tatami Galaxy
No, I loved it. It was one of the most interesting things I've seen in a while.
Nothing pushes my rage buttons harder than people shitting on good art. Why do you have to do that huh!?
Here we go with the meta discussions.
Anybody else think waifu threads a shit? Why can't this place be more like MAL?
You really have no idea what you are talking about if this comment isn't supposed to be bait then you are either incredibly ignorant or brain damaged.
But you do it too?
Yeah videogames too didn't you hear?
It was a good show but I don't think it's a masterpiece. The show gets really repetitive with the time loop. You could just watch the first episode and the last two and still appreciate it. And the side characters are more interesting than the MC and Akashi.
Except then you only understand the surface of what's going on with none of the emotion behind it. Some things require an actual time investment to be fully appreciated.
Really? That sketchy art is just an 'originality' pretense put off to hide the shitty quality and faggots like you swallow it like pelicans.
If you were talking about Bakemonogatari this would make more sense.
SHAFT is a shit studio in general so there's no point mentioning it. They rely on the lowest tier of humor, so called 'reference comedy'. Also the head tilts, weird face closeups are obnoxious as fuck. 'Decent' SZS manga was ruined with their dogshit adaptation. The only SHAFT show I consider 'good' is probably Madoka, and that's only because of the soundtrack.
Nisekoi from this season is awful.
Tatami Galaxy is one of my favorite animu
Well I haven't watched it so I don't have an opinion on it.
It bored me to death.
Should have been a movie
For those of you that didn't like this show, I'm genuinely curious why.
I really don't understand when something gets dismissed as being pretentious, even when it's not. Do shows that have any bit of depth instantly offend you?
Most people that I've spoken to that claim something to be pretentious, whenever they attempt to engage in any sort of fiction that requires attention or thought always seem to hate it.
Coincidentally there seems to be a pattern that these people don't have a favorite, in any medium.
I enjoyed the show but did feel it was a bit pretentious at times. By that I mean it did things that didn't add any value to the experience. Some of the monologues felt unnecessary and were just to show off how fast they could talk without really saying anything.
Also, not everyone considers being challenged intellectually as entertainment. Some people just want to watch cute girls doing cute things.
>not everyone considers being challenged intellectually as entertainment
I can understand that, but I guess I didn't explain what I really meant. I enjoy shows that have cute girls doing cute things. And a lot of the time those shows have depth as well.
A show doesn't need to be loaded with symbolism or metaphors, but anything with a slower pace is considered pretentious.
i.e. Haibane Renmei, Hyouka
Who says those are pretentious?
Agreed - the whole show was above average but those last two episodes tying everything together are what really made it good.
I enjoyed it a lot, but I think Uchouten Kazoku was better from this author.
Any of the threads that start off with, "Why do people like this anime?"
If the OP starts it off on a positive note, it usually is just a nice circlejerk thread.
>i.e. Haibane Renmei, Hyouka
eww - don't even bring Hyouka on the same level as Haibane or Tatami Galaxy because it really isn't.
Both are slow paced shows with polarized opinions.
Why don't you like Hyouka?
Obscure references and symbols just to be obscure are pretentious to me. Works like "The Wasteland" fall under this category. If you don't have the same tastes as the author you won't understand shit. It's like telling the viewers fuck you by giving an inside joke that most will not understand.
Well yeah, without a doubt that's what it means to be pretentious.
Heh, I only just saw someone replied to me, but goddamn man learn how to read.
I said if OP/people like OP don't understand how people could dislike it, then they're idiots.
probably my favorite OP in all anime
Wait, when did this show get so much hate? When it was airing people thought Ozu was waifu material
I don't normally vocalize my opinions on the things I dislike unless I'm directly asked why I dislike them.
too much words
talk too fast
not even cute
0/10 pretentious hipster bullshit
I'll probably never watch it.
I've never read so fast in my life.
Dropped half way through the series, really pretentious.
Like, the bee episode, that was so fucking pretentious.
