Please.

It would've been better if it just stuck to the cat and mouse shit. It would've been better if the MC's weren't pussy, and actually killed people. It would've been better if Five didn't exist.

Biggest flop of 2014.

>>120577401
Fine. Shit characters for the most part.

Let's not get carried away here. I will agree with the other two though.
But it wasn't one of the best of 2014. It was very flawed and disappointing thanks to Five and the finale.
>>
It was terrible.
>>
yer kidding
>>
I still listen to the OST. Von is the best.
>>
>>120577443
The only shit character is Lisa.
>>
>>120577456
>>120577465
I haven't even watched this yet from what I've read the ending ruins it completely. Reminds me of the BSG remake. Why do people keep trying to bring it up and say how great it was, can't they just accept its failure?

Go watch your moeshit, kids.

>>120577507
If Lisa stayed with the emotionally tortured backstory and didn't randomly turn into another kawaii moe desu character I would've liked her a lot more. Nine and Twelve's moralfaggotry didn't bother me nearly as much as that did. But what bothered me the most is Five and her bullshit completely ruining what could've been a great story.
>>
>>120577532
>Reminds me of the BSG remake

Based Sugoi Galactica?
Religious bullshit ruined it for me.
>>
>>120577507
Twelve was fucking annoying too.
Nine was kind of generic.
>>
>>120577569
>moeshit
I don't even hate the show, but you stop that right now.
>>
People seem to often compare this show to Death Note.
Which does /a/ think is better?
>>
>>120577605
Yeah man. I loved the first 3.5 seasons. And then. Well, you know. Retroactively ruined the entire series for me.
>>
>>120577619
>Twelve was fucking annoying too.
Agree to disagree, friend.
>>
>>120577569
This was my AOTS and you need to kill yourself.
>>
>>120577671
DN by a mile. The only reason people compare the two is because the two share a pretty similar vibe, for lack of a better word.
>>
>>120577569
End yourself, and this is not related to how terrible this was and how you are just a retard fooled by how good it did atmosphere.
>>
>>120577779
Not him, but I don't think there's anything wrong in being fully aware it's shit but enjoying it anyway, or at least certain aspects of it.
>>
It was a solid 4/10 OP.
>>
how much did it sell?

I can definitely say it was something else.
You decide whether or not that's a good thing.
>>
>>120577822
I enjoyed it too anon, but read what OP said, he isn't aware of how bad it is.

That coupled with his loose usage of moeshit points to a newfag crossboarder.
>>
>>120578026
1,488 total thus far.
Basically, it flopped.
>>
I think this anime finally confirmed my long held belief that Watanabe hates Americans.

I hope this isolation gives us another cycle of an /a/ golden age like it did post gurren lagan.
>>
Justify the ending and i'll admit it was great.
pro tip: you cant
>>
>>120578148
>>culture backlash is turning against anime again
I'm hoping KlK airing on American television sends us back to the "all anime is tentacle porn" era.
>>
>>120578148
>>watanabe shit flops left and right
This is how it's always been. Champloo underperformed and Kids on the Slope flopped too. His only real success both Japan and USA is Cowboy Bebop.
>>
>>120577671
Well first of all, it's nothing like death note at all. Death Note gets by on having likable characters who are put into conflicting situations, zawa zawa, and good music. Other than that, it's asspulls the animation (though it isn't really all that bad 'til season 2, Near you little fucking shit, you ruined everything) and you're either along for the ride or you aren't.

ZNT on the other hand has characters who behave incredibly randomly, have less than distinct motivations, poorly defined capabilities, hacking magic out the ass, and an otherwise abandonment of its own themes and subject matter. It's well animated, sure, and it does have good music and some nice moments. But ultimately, everything that it tried to be, it failed at. It thought it could comment on terrorism, government, fanaticism, child abuse, the modern inner-city household, or the school systems and the mindsets of the students, police and politics. And it failed at all of those things and wound up being a mediocre keikaku show that it took itself way too seriously that had none of the benefits Death Note had. Which is all the more disappointing since this (and Aldnoah Zero, which was going the same season) had a lot of big names attached to it and had a huge hype train going behind it.

As for "Best of 2014" no, absolutely not. Not even top 5. 2014 wasn't a good year overall, but ZnT doesn't really stand out all that much either.

Sorry for the MAL tier review, just my thoughts on the matter.
>>
k real talk, what the hell was the point of Lisa? The entire time I watched this show I kept thinking that it's going to happen, she's going to evolve into her own person...
But fucking no. Nothing happened at all. The hell Watanabe??!
>>

>Justify the ending and i'll admit it was great.
Who would fucking want to aside from Murricans?
>>
>>120578204
I kinda want more tentacle porn to be honest.

>>120578208
But it wasn't perceibed to be like this by the western publishers, now it is.
>>
>>120578272
This show needed to be 2 cours or at least 12 or 13 episode so all of the characters could get more development. The only character that fleshed out in any way, shape or form was Twelve, and maybe Shibazaki.
>>
>>120578272
Has Watanabe ever written a main female character that wasn't a huge fuck up?
>>
>>120577599
>>120577507
I have to agree on Lisa which is a shame, since I was really interested in her at first. At least she was cute.
>>
>>120578390
Faye?
>>
>>120578390
Ed, not-jax ex in bebop, champloo's MC was ok too.
>>
Remember that chess game?

The anime was great but suffered a lot from being jammed into 12 eps.

Did we watch the same show?

That motorcycle scene was one of the better parts of the show.

this.

I kinda just wanted the show to focus on being pretty like in those scenes. That would've been nice.
