Haven't really seen many people talk about this, but it's probably one of the greatest anime I've seen.
>>
Gotta love Shinsekai Yuri for sure
>>
>>102241116
Watch more anime then.
>>
Greatest ever? Probably not. It was pretty damn good though.
I love how most of the stuff that I thought was going to be dragged until the grand finale was actually resolved throughout the whole series, and the final conflict was much more... "simple".
It actually set up an environment with many things going on at the same time, and everything culminates in the ending.

Also
KIROMARU, NOOOOOO
>>
>>102241116
Greatest ever would be an exaggeration, but I found it to be quite good, 7.5/10. Good luck trying to have a proper discussion about it though, because every thread will descend into Squealer did nothing wrong leading to Hitler comparisons and >Shinsekai Yaoi.
>>
Squelar did nothing wrong.
>>
>>102241893
Did the queerats being humans surprise anybody? Because I literally got it as soon as they were introduced. Not bragging, just curious.
>>
>>102241972
I'm pretty sure the whole thing was intentionally presented to make you guess it from the start.
>>
It got worse each episode, but overall it was okay.
>>
>>102241998
I thought so as well, but there's that scene in the final episode... well, maybe they just wanted to be sure that it wasn't left not explicitly explained.
I'm not the kind of person who loves fan theories, but there's people who would deny even the most obvious shit just because it wasn't spelled out.
>>
>>102242074
I agree with you. Also, I guess the characters themselves needed some closure on the issue.
>>
Fujoshit trash.
>>
>>102242114
Yeah, that's probably the main reason now that I think about it.
>>
Why didn't Satoru use super magic powers to not inhale the anthrax like when saki surrounded her head with a bubble so she could breathe underwater just a few episodes earlier
>>
>>102241116
Try starting a normal Shinsekai thread next time.

Tagging on that "greatest anime" is just asking for a troll /short lived thread, unless that was your intention.
>>
>>102242185
I can conjure up two explanations:
1) he was focused on killing the "Fiend",
2) he was most likely going to die regardless since the virus wouldn't have killed it instantly anyway
3) he didn't want to give away what he was about to do
>>
>>102242277
>two
Damnit, I screwed up.
>>
>>102241116
>Haven't really seen many people talk about this
There were plenty of threads when it aired, newfriend.
>but it's probably one of the greatest anime I've seen
Fuck off.

By people i hope you mean normal people not from /a/.
We talked about it plenty.
>>
Will there ever be a "Thinking Man's" anime as exceptional as SSY now that it is finished?
>>
>>102242385
SSY didn't generate the kind of lasting fanbase needed to sustain general threads a year after it aired. If he just recently cleared it off his backlog then he would have missed all the discussion.
>>
>>102242372
>when it aired
Most people ignored it till it started to pick up in the second half.
The pacing issues in the first half left a lot to be desired from the majority of viewers.
>>
SSY was just really good world building and terrible fucking characters.

6/10

If you got mad about the two faggots kissing you're probably an insecure faggot.
>>
Probably the best anime to air in the past few years.
>>
>Haven't really seen many people talk about this
There's a thread every fucking day on /a/ you faggot

YOU GOT SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT HIM?!
HUH?!
>>
>>102241116
Great anime, but flawed, it was amazing at constructing atmosphere and world building.

I just finished the first chapter of the GN though, man, it panders a lot, its kinda gross seeing all the girls sexualised to an annoying degree when you know all the SUFFERING to come.
>>
>>102242856
>GN
>Not reading the original novel

I still need to finish it. I know what happens in the end, so that dampens my desire to continue, but I just thought the pacing itself was dreadful in many cases where the show would get into a decent rhythm and then drag its feet around certain plot points like the snow arc; the show also spends entirely too much time on travel scenes and a lot of the art direction was shaky at best. The characters were mostly pretty forgettable, as well, and I notice occasionally that they bothered including plot threads that go somewhere in the book but they don't have time on in the anime, so you get these odd pieces of story that have no purpose; the first thing that comes to mind is Saki and Satoru having some grudge between them at the beginning of the last time skip but it gets resolved in like 7 minutes and doesn't affect the story in any real way.

I dropped at the festival episode which is apparently when it's supposed to get better, so I've gotta get around to it.
>>
the whole show was a trainwreck but I couldn't look away. there were too many plotlines and although they tried to resolve all of them, it felt like the series was missing closure.
>>
>>102241116
You need to lurk more. It was better than most of 2013 though.
>>
The threads were more lively when the anime aired.
It was even more discussed than Rozen Maiden S2.
I guess the threads about it are more like the one about Sora No Woto,you have a few any month but they are still people who like it.
>>
>>102241972
They are not humans.
There are no humans in SSY's main plot.
>>
>>102244267
>humans with magic powers aren't human
>>
>>102242856
The manga is awful, don't bother.
>>
You must be pretty new around here then.
It got tons of healthy discussion, especially after the Squealer episode.
It was also popular enough to get 2nd place behind NNB for AOTY.
>>
>>102241116
>Haven't really seen people talk about this
there were plenty of threads when it aired, how new

>it's probably one of the greatest anime I've seen

DAMN IT , I've waited the come back of Maria and Mamoru in each episode , and I did'nt even trust them when they told they were dead , I thought that old lady was defending them or something , then my hope was dissappearing gradually till the last moment
TFW their child joined them
I FUCKIN HATE SQUEALER
>>
>>102244323
They are superhumans.
>>
>>102244267

You're joking right?
What it means to be human is one of if not the MAIN plot point of the entire show.
>>
I thought this was amazing. but made me sad about the guy who became a karma demon had to died. .
also Squealer got rekt
>>
>>102244267
>>102244394

Wasn't sure at first but now I'm positive you're trolling.
Almost getting me worked up gets you 5/10.
>>
>>102244355

Those shows didn't even air in the same year. SSY is 2012.
>>
>>102241140
>not yaoi
Are you a female or something.
>>
>>102244492
>SSY is 2012.
Fuck.
>>
>>102244488
>trolling

It was not my intention.
My words are sincere.

>>102244452
That's not a contradiction.
>>
>>102244913
It was good too
>>
>Haven't really seen many people talk about this

Is this where we are supposed to tsukkomi?
It's discussed about as often as LOGH.
>>
>Haven't really seen many people talk about this
>At least one SSY thread per day
OK, then.
