So /a/, today I finished watching this, it was pretty good, but the ending was too abrupt (though the last line followed by the ED got me).
I'm still not sure what I'm supposed to think, but I guess it is about accepting the hardships that come with living; accepting that sometimes there is no easy way; that your plans will probably end up failing, but even so, you have to get out there and make try to make your own happiness; that people have their own baggage to deal with, and everyone deals with it differently; that even if life is ultimately pointless and devoid of meaning, we should still give it our best without giving up..
What did you think of it /a/? What did you get out of it?
I showed this to a friend, what he got out of it was that he should be a neet and wont give any girl a chance unless if they're like Misaki. It's funny how people can just miss the message of something so hard.
My only quip is the pretty inconsistent animation, and the way there was a huge gap in the whole development of Satou's relationship with Misaki, other than that, superb.
I know that's not the message I was supposed to get, but that's honestly what I want to do too.
>My only quip is the pretty inconsistent animation
Considering that Gonzo did this, it's a miracle that the animation was as good as it was.
Go read the manga. It has a better ending and Misaki is a much better character in it.
Didn't Gonzo make Gankutsuou? That shit was awesome to look at
Does anybody know the main differences between the anime, manga, and novel? Are the main themes different as well?
Read the novel.
Dude the novel is thin and easy as fuck and the manga is only eight volumes, read them yourself.
But the anime is closer to the LN
All three are very different.
I heard drugs were prominent in the novel, less in the manga, hinted at in the anime
They are all very different and all have different endings to my recollection. I enjoyed the manga ending the most though.
The novel is much shorter and Satou's heavy into drug use and CP
I'm pretty apprehensive about this because right now, I don't think I could handle thinking of the same characters and story in 3 different ways, perhaps later.
>Misaki is a much better character in it.
Agreed. Batshit crazy Misaki is best Misaki
The anime and novels are good and the manga fucking sucks.
Are you literally reta-- mentally challenged?
Man I just finished watching, I'm still digesting the anime, and from what I've read, the characters have both big and small differences (this seems to hold specially true of Misaki), cut me some slack.
>cut me some slack.
Don't worry, I won't insult the disabled.
This meme needs to die.
I was predisposed to detest every single human in this world the moment I was born.
After watching this anime, I still do.
>>101828516 is a joke
>>101828973 is edgy
Learn the difference, it could save your life!
I prefer the justification of Yamazaki's hatred of women in the novel much more than in the anime.
It felt more realistic than in the manga/anime where he even has a girlfriend.
In the anime he has no girlfriend, he just said he did.
Even if I was remembering that wrong my point still stands just as if not more firmly.
So was the porn that Yamazaki gave Satou actually CP? or was it just Jailbait/Lolicon?
Depends what version, and beyond that, what translation.
I remember the manga being different comparing official and fan translation.
Oh but it was definitely CP in the novel, I remember that much.
