Yesterday I finished watching season 3, and I haven't been able to put it out of my mind since. I don't like that, it's just a high school romantic comedy after all. Hopefully writing a few lines about it will make that go away.

They really surprised my by committing to a definite conclusion. The way the story resolved, the way the love triangle resolved, was not unexpected in my opinion - what we got was what the story had been building up to, what had been telegraphed from the beginning. But given the ambiguous endings of the previous seasons and the often bittersweet conclusion to minor arcs, I didn't think they would play it completely straight in the end. Fully expected them to either leave the matter unresolved again, or end with everyone-losing-but-growing-from-the-experience. But they stuck the landing, and for all intents and purposes the story has concluded, the curtain has dropped. This too was made clear before the actual finale of course, with the repeated references to endings and conclusions in the dialogue, but that doesn't sink in until it has happened.

Maybe that's what's irking me - I've gone a couple of years living with this as something that promised to be forever unresolved, and now I'm faced with abrupt closure. I didn't want it to ever be really over.

Still, I have a gripe. Call it team-Yui sour grapes if you want. Story-wise, the love triangle obviously resolved as it "should" have, if it was to have any positive resolution at all. No need to go into the details of why that is, a blind man can see it. But it leaves a taste that's not just bittersweet but straight up bitter. What the story builds to is an unironic Hiki-Yukinon power couple. The culmination of their on-screen relationship consists of them coming together to do [b]event management[/b], which had become a bit of a repeating trope in the latter half of the series. The girlboss of the wealthy family wins, and acquires an utterly loyal and at least moderately competent future husband who will help her take over and run the family empire. We are expected to have sympathy for the rich girl; how terrible it is for her to be burdened with all these expectations and these exacting family members, and how much of a savior her future husband proves to be… Frankly I don't like it, and I don't have as much sympathy as the story would want me to. Fuck the rich and their problems.

I sometimes enjoy that, but few anime or media in general allow there to be catharsis with their negativity.


MC is just like me.


>le obvious condescension

Thank you youtubers for giving birth to thousands of pseuds like this that MUST apply their surface-level knowledge of political theory to all media they consoom.


Political analysis of media is something everyone does, whether it is correct is another matter, but that's why this is a thread and not a thesis paper; people write out what they think and discuss. If you're not interested, DON'T READ IT. It's not that hard to hide a post and ignore it.
&ltMuh youtubers
People have and did do this on /a/ long before weeb youtubers were even a thing.

Pic is me TBH, It's also basically the theme of Shield Hero's beginning (internalized).


Way too edgy in some ways, not edgy enough in others

Recently rewatched Tokyo magnitude 8.0, really solid, giving it a shoutout. Bit sappy at times but I eat that shit up if done right.

If I had to pick one I like most it would be Hyouka. Lots of better animes out there but I just really like this one, it's like a warm blanket to me.


holy shit, pure autism


I'm really enjoying Baki the Grappler right now. I'm only 12 episodes in. But I still don't understand why Baki's mom french kissed him.


I had to stop around that point because it got too retarded for me.

These two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime, everyone loves them, yet they are such fucking garbage, literal trash, why are they so fucking bad holy shit.
And I watched it when I was a kid and even then I HATED it, I had a friend who also watched DBZ and he hated it too, even we who were just two little dumbass kids could recognize how shit this cartoon was. And dont get me started on Super.
Naruto is just as bad if not worse, they somehow contradict their own message every god damn time, and have a little privileged retarded kid as the main character who was born with le epic god powers, and never works a day in his life to achieve anything, its all just handed to him

>akugou is also a bad rip-off of Sasuke
I take this back and instead replace it with him being more like Vegeta.

>It is absolute Kino. And better than OG DB+DBZ combined. DBS is awesome every arc.
Is it?
I haven't watched it and the last time I watched DBZ was in the early 2000s when its run ended in my shitty latam country. What makes Super so much better than the original?

Trigger is here to bring the cyberpunk genre back to relevancy in Japan.

The manga/anime industry is inherently anti-art because the creators are incentivised to milk the fuck out of their series untill no one cares about them anymore - even to a more extreme degree than the Hollywood franchises and TV shows. I'm sure you could find a good story in most mangas, the problem is that it's buried under the 95% unnecessary bullshit and it lacks the proper execution because it's created under a lack of time. The deadline driven nature of comics prevents them from entering a higher level of art.

Read you faggot
>muh generals
&lthurr lets make half-a-dozen different threads about how capitalism taints anime
Your OP is literally: Anime industry [read capitalism] leads to non-artistic products, as money > art for creators, just like any other mass media (movies, tv series, etc.) because pragmatism and greed over-rule artistic expression or actual effort in execution due to the time/budget constraints on artists (see >>617)



seething janny wannabe, did you seriously just copypaste the op to that thread lmaooooo


File: 1608529090132.jpg (377.51 KB, 1044x722, Catalog pointless thread.jpg)

>everyone who sages is sagefag
&ltI'm a special snowflake who wants my own thread about a topic that already has 3 other threads
You're still posting nothing, This entire thread is a waste. Good job.

this board would be better if kircheis were here


What would have happened if Kirchies were alive? Only 2 people have defeated Yang, Kirchies and Hildegard von Mariendorf.


This series was a big disappointment in the end. Nothing but a big wank off of anacyclosis with weak character development, the whole thing felt like wasted potential.
