Literally just finished marathoning it 10min ago after putting it off for a couple of months.
>Anime of the year
>OST of the decade
This is a fucking gem of execution over material.
Also, general discussion I guess.
I rewatched it yesterday as well and it was my fourth time watching it. Kazama's episode is so god awful, I hate it.
>Wenge best boy
ZnT has a better OST for me but yeah its anime of the year by far.
>execution over material
Dont you mean the other way around?
I know I'm still high off of it, but I'm not sure I'm going too far. It is REALLY good and, more importantly, very well implemented into the show.
Yes, but not in the way I think you're implying.
Whenever Peco says 'I love you' I want to punch his face in that episode. It's just too cheesy for me. The pacing seems all over the place as well.
But ultimately, you might just be right. Is it wrong to be bitter about not having a hero in my life?
No. The story itself is not that great, it's simple. And it's also not perfect; for example I think they heavily underused perhaps the best character in Wenge.
But the way it's told and it's style and the pacing -- oh my, that pacing -- just grips you from the first second.
Even Polnaref needed a hero!
Its just your male mentality that you think you can deal with everything all by yourself.
If you can accept someones help, do it, cause some of us are too lost in our own pride to be able to accept it.
I genuinely love this show, but what is the deal with the rabid fans, the trolls pretending to be rabid fans, and the people who hate it?
>the rabid fans
Just people who are too easily impressed.
>the trolls pretending to be rabid fans
Every show that is expected to appeal to normalfags gets this. Some people are overly paranoid of crossboarders invading and feel the need to fight back, I guess.
>the people who hate it
Some people had a negative reaction to the art style when they first saw it and decided to not give it a chance. The others just have
different opinions than you.
When I say hate it, I mean as vocally as the rabid fans. Is this a more normalfag show? like you said the art style threw many people off.
It's very, very different and its peculiarities are so salient and jagged that they can impale would-be typical fans of an otherwise genuinely good anime. The fans caught in this shows defining aspects obsess over them and can go crazy constantly anchoring themselves to these visual and audio aspects instead of the story's themes and characters. Due to the more-or-less shallow nature of liking an anime primarily due to its animation style, it's easy to emulate and make fun of these people's conduct (while simultaneously attempting to draw flak to a different anime that one may not actually like if that is an ulterior motive).
Rabid fans obsess over the style instead of the substance. This is a low-hanging fruit for trolls. Therefore, we have a crowd of mongoloids shitting themselves at the bottom of the tree while less people manage to actually climb to the top.
It was a really fun watch and great one overall but I feel the best part of the show was the message it was portraying.
Also, I did not mind the art at all for it, infact, I found it to be pretty good.
After seeing this thread and posts about the OST, I feel like going back and listening to it right now; It's too great NOT to be listened to.
I really think he should've been much more imoprtant in the story. He was arguably the best character.
Peco's story was so fucking brilliant, What a character he turned out to be.
I thought the art just added to the brilliance of it.
Yeah, he started out as this badass who appeared to be the main opponent and by the end he was just a semi impressive measuring stick.
Which is really sad, he deserved better.
