Why do so few anime know how to handle emotional and dramatic themes? I can only think of a handful that actually get it right.
>>
yeah you would neo-/a/
>>
I think its because Japanese are (generally) reserved, awkward people.
>>
Most anime can't into subtlety and semi-realistic characterisation when needed. It's likely a consequence of the target audience being somewhat emotionally stunted and Japan's general attitude towards open emotion.

Most attempts at drama feel melodramatic at best and outright hamfisted at worst as a result.

In my opinion K-On was easily the best in that regard.

I guess it depends on whether you think right and accurate are the same things. Not everyone would agree that TV shows and movies (or theater, or whatever) should reflect emotion and drama in a realistic way. It obviously needs to be in some way relatable but for the most part I think people expect it to be a little different, a little separated, and probably more dramatic. Some people will think that's perfect, some people won't be happy unless "drama" is just like the real world.

What's twisted is when people start to express their emotions in real life like they've seen modeled in drama.

Realistic drama is shit. Melodrama is best.

West sucks for abandoning melodrama.
Melodrama is basically portraying events in such a fashion that they apply to the emotions of the viewer in a strongest way possible. If you abandon this sort of approach, there is no point in doing fiction at all.

When people tell me that Madoka is melodramatic, I take that as a COMPLIMENT

killing friends in madoka is like killing friends in a videogame because there's going to be a next round and nobody really fucking cares or has any hard feelings about it

Evangelion is the only series that got it right.

Homura did right by grabbing onto every last glimmer of hope. If she didn't and thought that, she'd have quickly lost hope and lost any reason to keep going back, because she wouldn't try hard each time. She'd lose spirit, and hope, and would turn into a witch.

Your argument has just been destroyed, pulverized, annihilated.

You say all that like it's a bad thing, then the series would be over and anime would be saved from rabid retarded fans.

>>121143327
You know, that scene is great and it wrecks me emotionally, and I would never remove it but even I agree that Homura didn't have to kill her since she was going to turn back time anyway

>>121143291
I homu here.
It's fucking Christmas that I'm using my trip outside normal Madoka threads, although with a bit of effor we can make this Madoka thread yet

when you can groundhog day the entire universe to your heart's content, no action consequences have ANY weight whatsoever because you can
A. redo literally anything you did that has results you didn't like
B. nobody will remember anything you did, so they'll never hold it against you

the groundhog day cliche is getting a bit old, also it allows the creator tons of room to fuck up and redo which in my opinion makes them lazy.

You truly are the worst tripfag I've ever seen.
