Well this went to shit real quick. What's with the anime/manga industry and "muh suffering" lately?
>>
It's the Madoka of our Evangelion.
>>
I remember a few years ago everybody said Madoka had no influence on the anime industry and so NGE was undoubtedly better than it.

Oh, the times of the constant NGE vs Madoka threads. Where has the time gone?
>>
>>117638928
I dropped it. What happened?

>What's with the anime/manga industry and "muh suffering" lately?
Suffering anime has always existed. Yes, even before Madoka.
>>
It's not even that suffering, literally nobody has died.
>>
>>117638928
not everything can be happy

>>117638928
It's more like Muv Luv, in my opinion.

And no, it didn't "go to shit" quickly. There was a lengthy exposition.

So is true, Madoka invented suffering.
>>
>>117639065
For someone who has expacted things to get bad any single moment, at some point I've had an uncertain feeling of impeding catastrophe.

Then, it dragged on for a few episodes.

That's the best way to describe it - there is no sudden and vivid suffering, it's the anticipation of suffering that makes it. The stakes feel heavy.

At the point we're at, it's becoming comparable to Madoka in terms of amount of shit to put up with.

There are worse ways of suffering than death.
>>
Picking up this show has actually been a bad idea, I liked its drama a lot but its gentle way which did not involve episodes over episodes of girls crying and screaming are making me quite tired of other dramas which are more shock focused.

Its a really unsettling piece of work which in my opinion doses well the SoL, the development and the drama. Furthermore I really like the fact the MC is courageous as fuck and does her best to keep on smiling to support her friends, she became girl of the season for me after the way she supported Togo last episode

I can only imagine how much worse deformed you can be.

But they won't die, so everything's OK right?

>>117641235
You're doomed to suffer forever a fate worse than death.

My high school auto mechanics teacher once said that once you lose a part of your body you might as well kick the bucket. And it's true. I'd rather be dead than alive with any missing limbs

It was obvious bad things were going to happen you dumb shit.

Because edgemaster bullshit is what sells. Look at Eva and Madoka and SnK.

Karin is the only one that won't end like a cripple

The moment I saw a girl in a wheelchair I dropped this shit.

Crippled people only exist in anime to suffer terribly.

>>117641446
Well, this explain why this show isn't selling, it isn't really edgy even on its suffering

You can't be a cripple when you're dead.

Madoka invented anime, what are you talking about?
>>
>>117639065
anime went full madoka

How old are they, 12?

>>117641799
14 or around thereabouts. Middle school aged.
>>
>>117641913
Middle school girls are the best.

I especially like how Madoka actually had the guts to have a lesbian version of Chikane.

It's "cheap and easy" to quickly create some suffering in order to have readers or viewers be both distracted and to empathize or have sympathy for the character. Strengthening audience emotions helps sell character goods. The old school method of developing a plot and having situations and characters develop uses too many minutes. The modern anime audience in japan (just like here) seems to be becoming more impatient about waiting for plot payoff. That's all part of the common lamentations of Miyazaki, Anno, and the Self-Appointed One That Will Save Anime.
