>>120334178 >show contains elements that the vast majority of the audience will understand >pretentious And that's not even true, there were hardly any references that your average anime watcher wouldn't immediately understand.
>>120334178 how does it pander to japanese culture? the references to mythology, campus life and etcetera were able to be inferred from the story itself, even with a low power level. The pace of dialogue may be offputting, but hey, that's what the pause button is for git gud and learn moon
>>120334284 I'm an average anime watcher and the show goes in the same folder as Bakemonogatari and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Incomprehensible fast paced dialogue. >>120334410 Japanese campus life and mythology is part of culture m8.
And having to pause is precisely what makes the show pretentious.
>>120334720 I'm also an average anime watcher and I didn't find the dialogue incomprehensible in any way. I wouldn't rate my understanding of Japanese culture particularly high, but I did not feel like this prevented me from understanding or enjoying the show. Fast dialogue and the need for pausing it causes - I didn't feel any need to pause it at any point, but whatever, people are different - can't really be consideerd pretentious by any conventional definition of that word. And what does it even mean for art to be hipster-esque? There is nothing wrong with a more standard artstyle, but it is ridiculous to imply that there would be anything wrong with a more unique and distinctive style, either.
>>120334720 >>120334178 >99% of all anime ever (made up number but still) was/is intended for japanese audiences and in some cases, to a much lesser extend to international audiences >I can't understand this anime because I'm not culturally Japanese >Therefore this anime is shit
Nigga, Nigga, Nigga, I get the feeling you're watching the wrong anime for the wrong reasons. Best you go back to /co/ or watch Naruto
