Character-driven stuff is just usually more powerful to experience. Plot is good, but plot, on it's own, is definitely inferior. One-dimensional characters get very predictable. And no, I don't watch cute SOL.
>>120323027 >Character-driven stuff is just usually more powerful to experience i can agree with this >but plot, on it's own, is definitely inferior why? many of humanity's most celebrated and fundamental fiction (i.e. classical greeks) is plot-driven.
>>120322711 Characters driven shows are more fun and plot driven shows almost always take themselves too seriously. People like Amaburi because of the fairies, mascots and Sento. I enjoyed the show even though the plot was absolute shit.
>>120323273 But people praise Evangelion, a character-driven show that takes itself way too seriously, as inherently better than a lot more (previous) shows with similar setting that put more focus on their world development
>>120323399 Evangelion is clearly different. It was one of the first extremely popular shows that focused on characters and spawned a whole new kind of otaku and basically created waifufags, while still having good world building and plot. A show like Evangelion is going to take itself seriously.
>>120323604 >while still having good world building Ehm, no, i can agree with everything else, but as a sci-fi show it severely lacks on that department. Its world building is "it's just like today but we have this giant robots", even counting side materials, a lot of things remain unexplained.
>>120322711 I haven't seen a decent plot in any medium in ages. Creative works in general seem to really favor character-driven stuff, at least the stuff that people consume for fun instead of "enrichment" or whatever you want to call it. And it seems like it's really hard to pull off a good plot WITHOUT great characters to make us give a shit about what's going on in.
