What a boring piece of shit this anime was
What a boring person you must be. Don't feel obligated to share your boring opinions on this board.
>you must be a boring person to find a piece of shit boring
I find pieces of shit to be disgusting, not boring.
Exactly my thoughts.
You call that boring you little weak minded fuck?
I just sat through every fucking brain numbing episode of Windy Tales!
Maybe you should stick to Naruto.
Look at how boring your shit thread is. It's like you thought you were the first person to dislike Texhnolyze and had to absolutely make a thread about it.
go away texhnoshill
Look how boring your derivative comments are. So boring.
stop bullying me you fucking faggot
OP's trolling is boring
Look OP, there aren't many people who have seen this series, and that applies even on /a/.
You wont be upsetting too many people by making this thread. Try going for a more popular show, eh?
it shit but you are watching it for HER
it's ok, more people are dumber than smarter
watch some naruto or whatever
This thread is a decontruction of shitposting.
Don't give him ideas with that picture..
You have to be joking, This is one of the best shows around.
Technolyze was great, and Windy Tales was great. It is not the show's fault you were too stupid to appreciate them.
I wish I knew what it was like to have ADHD
I liked it.
Oonishi was the best character.

I just finished watching this show a few days ago and i thought it was fantastic.
Sort of like evangelion in the way that it told a very positive message through a bleak story/setting. The ending was just heart breaking.
This anon again, is it weird that i loved this show but thought SEL is way too slow paced and dull.
So i'm gonna try to get some discussion here.
I watched Haibane Renmei and Lain. Loved 'em both. This is by the same guy, right? How does it compare to those two?
Always nice to see people getting positivity out of the show when most of the reactions involve calling it the most nihilistic show ever, or are just overreaching in positivity.
I think Texh, as a point of comparison to lain (both of which were written by Konaka) maintained its linear thematic drive far more coherently than lain did, and I believe benefited from not being quite as obfuscating as some of lain's episodes, a few of which I think Konaka himself admitted to being kind of a mess. There's also Hamasaki's directing, which I'm a bit partial to.
You should get something out of it but a lot of people prefer lain and HR to Texhnolyze -- it's definitely far darker than any of the ABe-related series, and the minimalism in the early episodes puts a lot of people off (lots of complaints about pacing which i don't personally have a problem with), so it's show you need to pay a lot of attention to -- moreso than just about anything else I've watched. Totally worth it though, and the art direction is brilliant as with most of the ABe anime despite the low budget, and I'd argue that it's the most visually accomplished of all of them, but this is just preference I suppose.
>I watched Haibane Renmei and Lain. Loved 'em both. This is by the same guy, right?
No, it's not. They are both connected by aBe but aBe is just the character designer in Lain and nothing more and he is the author of Haibane (surprisingly he is not the character designer in Haibane).
In any case, he is somehow a guarantee of quality. Whatever he is involved with ends up being great, even when just doing illustrations.
ABe was responible for just about all of HR since it was his own doujinshi series prior to the anime --the character designs are pretty consistent from doujin to anime/promo art. I'm still blown away by how well HR was written considering how ABe might as well have been a newcomer to writing for an anime in the first place.
I only watched the first episode and literally slept through it, does it get any better?
He's the original author and scriptwriter of Haibane, Akira Takada is it's character designer.
ABe did do all the original character designs. There's character design work separate from that for the animation studio adapting those designs for the anime (Takada from Radix for HR, Shigeo Akahori for Texhnolyze and Kishida for lain). The designs are all still based off of ABe's original work.
