What's so great about this show?
Yes the NHK was his "evil" that he could blame all the bad stuff about and give the evil in the world a name.
The way the characters develop is crap. Sato develops in an EXPLOSION after he hear's Torotoro bawling his eyes out after he leaves their house. He seems to get a lot better since Misaka going over to his house every day for lunch and going to their sessions without any trouble. But let's talk about Misaka. Doesn't have any development whatsoever until the last couple of episodes where she sees Sato and his senpai together and then she doesn't talk about it at all and he lies about it for NO GODDAMN REASON. She only gets barely interesting after she admits she's lonely and she tries to kill herself twice. You're forced to learn about her through a simple story and not really her version at all, then later on she just assumes Sato knows what happened and just explains the holes...like ok we the watchers know what's going on but you as a character have no fucking clue your uncle explained your background to him.
Dear god the pacing was AWFUL Misaka's and Sato's relationship progresses at a pretty alright rate. Episode 7 they go on a date and Sato finds that's he's enjoying himself despite being surrounded by people. He goes on another fake date with her and his mom and watches her fend off his pressuring mom like a champ everything seems to be going well. Then the mom leaves they walk around and BOOM RIGHT BEFORE THEY KISS fucking phone call, how original. Then after that there's NOTHING TO DO WITH MISAKA. He keeps avoiding the sessions, tries to hook up with his senpai again, and then randomly again she shows up and invites him to fireworks where they hold hands and everything seems to be going well again until..he gets home..argues with home appliances and pretty much tells her to fuck off due to his own mental disability.
0/10 would not recommend
you watched this seriously?
The only reason to watch the anime is for the god-tier soundtrack. Also for the suicide arc. If you care about the plot, read the novel.
>The way the characters develop is crap.
Read the novel
>Dear god the pacing was AWFUL
Read the novel
Misaki is not supposed to be love interest, she's supposed to be a manipulative character, the anime version lightened her up and hinted at romance for otaku fans
Read the novel, it creates a better context for the events of the series
I didn't read your entire post except the start, but if the rest basically says, "why does this get all the "MUH FEELS;_;" praise, when the character development is bad, and I didn't get attached to anyone. The eroge ruined the story" then I am inclined to agree. The "Heavens Island (>>101609655)" was the only thing that had somewhat of an impact on me. The rest was ruined by bad attmpts at humor. See pic related
it deals with depression/social exclusion and we're on an online anime board.
connect the dots nigga.
that being said, for whatever reason i liked it
Manga has a more interesting story than the novel I don't care if it butchers the characters.
I liked it for the first couple of episodes including the "Heavens Island arc" that shit made me cry.
But like I said the character's reactions made no sense. ESPECIALLY FUCKING SATO. The girl that just saved his life is now trying to comfort him and he's about to fucking hit her. Also the chaging about how he feels towards her is just insane there's no pattern.
Again it's a holdover from the novel where Misaki was genuinely manipulative and did everything to get Satou to react a certain way. The anime tried to keep the story the same while also making Misaki a fragile abused flower who was so innocent, it just doesn't work.
People who want to commit suicide are rarely grateful to the people that stop them for doing so
>Implying Yamazaki wasn't the one who saved his life.
>Implying the reason he wanted to hit her wasn't because she told him he was a worthless neet no lower than a stray dog.
BOOM RIGHT BEFORE THEY KISS
You wanted a romantic, shoujo anime and didn't get it. Might as well watch Eva for the same reason.
Misaki was a sad lonely little girl even in the novel. The anime makes her look more like she actually loves Sato, that much is true. But in the end is still a very selfish love as you can tell from the contract that Sato refused to sign.
All in all i liked the anime more than the novel. Some additional characters and events of the anime weren't that great, but Yamazaki in the anime is much better; in the novel Yamazaki was such a side-kick who quickly faded out of focus and didn't interact much with neither Sato nor anyone, just working on his game alone. The author of the novel was too self-centered and he only focused on his self-insert, that is Sato. The anime gives Yamazaki a fair chance and he turns out to be a very nice character.
I felt that he was only there as a sort of comic release, and that his actions and story was absurd. He had some good dialogue, but the overall best thing with him was "PURU PURURU RIN, PURU RIN!"
relief* still too early in the morning for me.
At least he doesn't become totally alienated like in the novel. He's much more of a friend to Sato in the anime, and when he leaves you actually notice his absence. In the novel I almost didn't notice that he left the apartment and went back home.
You now realize that the Jews are /pol/'s NHK. Makes you look at that place completely differently.
If you didn't notice, all the characters are messed up so it's not unusual for the pacing and especially the character development to also be messed up.
Also, it is essentially a dark comedy sort of
and I guess most people on here can relate to it in some way so that's a plus
Nigga, you are high. There was so much fucking foreshadowing to Misaki being fucked up herself since the very beginning, especially in the LN.
Just like in reality, Sato, our hapless protagonist, strives to improve himself as a person, yet repetitively fails, but picks himself up (with the aid of others, usually), and tries again. Each time, he gets a little closer to the world, and the people within it.
As Sato said, reality doesn't work like in anime and manga, where a simple burst of emotion and speech will solve all their ails. No, instead a lonely melancholy fills their lives, slowly eating away at them. Familiar becomes unfamiliar, territory shrinks, hopes and aspirations dim, and the world itself is covered with a nefarious shadow - NHK.
You're basically complaining that this anime was 2real4u.
