Is this the least interesting show KyoAni has ever produced?

It seems like the only way I could theoretically enjoy this is if I was just waifu watching, might as well turn the subs off. Like I understand that I'm not the target audience, but even KnK was much less of a pile of cliches. Amaburi was mostly about soft waifus, but it at least had a sorta original concept and some humor that landed.

Does this show bring anything new to the table other than an attempt to perfect moe character design?
>>
It's a fun, enjoyable show
>>
>>136149499
>Does this show bring anything new
No, and we all knew it would be generic garbage from the beginning.
The only reason you watch modern KyoAni shows in the first place is because of the aesthetic anyway.
>>
>Is this the least interesting show KyoAni has ever produced?
probably; definitely one of them. its' strength is being entertaining, not being novel or particularly interesting.
>Does this show bring anything new to the table other than an attempt to perfect moe character design?
no, but it has good animation and character design and is fun to watch. it's not something serious though.
>>
Koito a shit

But what do you guys find entertaining about it?

>>136149553
>The only reason you watch modern KyoAni shows in the first place is because of the aesthetic anyway.
There's no way this is true for most of Hibike's audience. Whether you liked the show or not, people were watching it for the characters and the drama (which may or may not include yuri-baiting depending on your perspective).
>>
>>136149708
For example, this was an entertaining scene.
>>
>>136149499
Not really. Koito is cute and have fap worthy design. I only watch for her.
>>
>>136149785
I guess man. That was all just flat to me. Every gag felt stale.

I don't wanna say that I'm a KyoAni fanboy, but this is the first time I've ever felt this way about one of their shows. I've found every show they've produced to at least be above average (didn't bother with Free), but for the first time I'm just bored and aggravated. I was gritting my teeth through most of the second episode. I mean I had heard that it was gonna be a dumb battle harem thing, but I didn't expect it to be a literal carbon copy of every dumb battle harem with totally uninspired writing and character work.

I would say it feels like a quick cash grab, but is it even doing well?

I watch a lot of dumb entertaining shows. Recently I've watched Monster Musume, Love Lab, and Sakura Trick, all simple, dumb, though lightly enjoyable shows. It's not like I have high standards or anything. But all of those were much more entertaining than this so far.

>>136149823
I can respect that.

Nobody cares. And no sane person wants to waste their time trying to justify why they enjoy a thing to you, just so you can satisfy your crippling autism. Maybe if you weren't so fucking autistic you could realize why you don't like the show, and why other people do.
>>
Different strokes for different folks. Sometimes people just want to be entertained and get some fun by turning their brains off and appreciate its only value like movie flicks. There's no harm of watching these kind of shows, and you can watch better ones to spend your time anyway.
>>
Personally, what I hate more is the pseudo-intellectual dialogues that open up the episodes. I can stand to enjoy the series brainlessly, but the dialogues make me think there's something more to this series and I just can't find it. It feels like a disconnected waste of screen time when the protagonist is explaining shit at the start.
>>
>>136150231
Is it because KnK had all the dumb melodrama and tried to be this big crazy thing that ultimately fell flat on its face? Or another reason?

>>136150318
I mean I certainly get that, and I enjoy that kind of stuff too (see >>136150113 ). I guess this show just doesn't have quite enough going on for me to get into it.

>>136150365
Oh yeah, that's pretty fuckin annoying. Especially ep2 with the whole "were the phantoms always there, or did the humans create the phantoms with their collective subconscious?" Like if you're going to go with something so incredibly cliche, why draw so much attention to it?
>>
>>136149708
I pickup any kyoani for aesthetics ever since hyouka. I don't care much for the plot although some have been fun. The threads too.
>>
>>136150467
That and I didn't like the voice acting in KnK, they had awful timing for comic scenes and boring character design except for Ai and the cakes.
>>
>>136150113
I'm offended that you would lump Love Lab in with these other shows. Its humor was based on lampooning shoujo manga cliches while ecchi humor shamelessly embraces the absolute lack of anything funny or original about its comedy.
>>
I don't watch excessive amounts of anime so all your problems with it aren't applicable to me. The show has also done nothing to offend or put me off.
>>
What is wrong with a fun anime? Kyoani will deliver with Knk and Hibike 2 later this year anyway. Let them enjoy themselves with this.
>>
>>136150551
Eh, the only really enjoyable humor in monmusu was about their nature as monster girls, not really about ecchi. It's not funny that he falls on her tits or whatever, it's funny that she's constricting him to death or whatever. I don't really remember, it's all a blur. And Sakura trick, I would say I enjoyed less as a comedy and more as sort of a really dumb romance. Like I was kinda rooting for the characters. Some stuff was sorta funny, mostly in the way whatserface would make main girl jealous all the time. Really the whole show was just anticlimactic because nothing (that made any kind of sense) ever ended up happening. Though there was some absurdism in the show that I definitely laughed out loud at.

>>136150545
Fair enough.

>>136150524
Yeah, they definitely do gorgeous work.

>>136150717
I guess I'm just the only one who isn't having fun. I'm probably not gonna drop it just because I almost never drop anything, but I've certainly got the urge.

Nichijou, KNK
>>
>>136151088
Based japan, will it flop harder than nichijou? That would be pottery.
>>
>>136150819
Free! may have been designed as fujobait but there was some passion put into making it. Phantom World is just a job to advertise their publishing branch and to keep Ishihara occupied while the talented directors take charge of better material. They were obligated to make it because it was the best thing they got sent during their writing competition one year. That said, I'm enjoying this show slightly more since I'm hetero.
>>
>>136151209
Right, because you're so sure that's exactly the case with Phantom World. This is the kind of bullshit nonsense that I can never understand. When KyoAni makes a show you fags don't like, somehow it's a special case for critique.
>>
>>136151088
I'm not convinced this actually means anything substantial at this point, but despite being a pretty big KyoAni fan part of me hopes the show is a commercial failure.

>>136151139
I can see people hating Nichijou, but it's obviously way more interesting than Phantom World. It was like this huge crazy risk that they took, and nothing quite like it aired before or since. And KnK was fatally flawed, but at least it had some personality.

>>136151209
>keep Ishihara occupied while the talented directors take charge of better material
If this is true then I'm all for whatever it takes. Also you seem like a good person to ask, is Free! worth watching? I plan to get to it eventually, just wanna know if I should push it up my backlog.

>>136151338
Not that guy. Free! is less about swimming and more about the characters finding a reason to swim, if that makes any sense. The show is all about the characters and the sport itself is simply part of the narrative. You wouldn't watch it for the swimming, as simple as that.
>>
>>136151373
Well, this is the anime and manga board, isn't it?

>>136151415
Is that a good thing or a bad thing? I wasn't watching K-on for the music. Or Hibike for that matter. Are you saying that you wouldn't watch it for the swimming, the only reason you would watch it is for moist man-on-man piledriving?
>>
>>136151338
>is Free! worth watching?
It's not worth pushing up your backlog but it's not worth deleting it. It's made for fujoshi. But it does have great swimming animation and the story is decently thought out. It has a talent versus effort theme. Kyoani has at least 2 other shows about that so it's redundant, although it has proven a successful recipe.
>>
>>136149499
I have more fun to watch this than KnK.
>>
>>136151518
Thanks fella
>>
>>136151481
>Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
I'm not in the position to decide your taste.

I guess it's sort of like Hibike where there is an end goal for everyone. If you're into shows like that, then try it out.

If you're worried it's gayshit, it's not, although there was like two, three moments for the fujofags to daydream about. If you're bothered by watching guys swimming, then don't watch it.
>>
Episode 2 was the most boring.
>>
>>136151338
>is Free! worth watching?
Don't bother if you're not a fujoshit, the writing is atrocious.
>>
>>136151704
If you watch Kyoani shows religiously you have already dealt with worse.

>>136151631
After Episode 1 I was all "okay, this is dumb, but I'll watch anyway." After Episode 2 I just wanted my time back.

Where would you put it on a relative scale where Amagi Brilliant Park is weak, KnK is a mess, and Chuu2Ren is bottom of the barrel?

I'll watch just about anything if it has witty dialog, but nothing in ep2 even came close to making me smile.

Here's a question for all you guys who enjoy this show. Was ep2 significantly worse than ep1? I don't really remember it and god knows I'm not going back to rewatch it. But maybe ep2 is more of a hiccup?

For one thing, the fanservice isn't like KyoAni. It's shameful and done for the sake of pandering that makes it distasteful. Another thing, the plot is kinda meh and the voicing isn't all that good for some characters.

The animation is nice, but the directing is just so-so.

Basically kyoani was running short on money.

So they drew this scene to titillate otaku and try to make them like the show more in the hopes they'll keep watching and buy the bluray

>>136149499
>Does this show bring anything new to the table other than an attempt to perfect moe character design?
Anime in a nutshell. If you want to read a book, go read a book. I watch anime almost exclusively for the art, most of which boils down to female character design. If I don't like the artstyle or at least one character design I don't watch the show, usually.

So on the one hand I'm sorta glad some other /a/nons came out of the woodwork eventually to kinda-sorta halfway validate my feelings about Phantom World, but on the other hand a lot of them seem like the same dudes who troll kyoani threads calling Hyouka moeshit and constantly shitposting about "sameface."

Honestly I suspect this show is still a damn sight better than the source material, despite how lackluster it is. Not that I have any real basis for that suspicion.

>>136153444
Well, it's true though. Fumoffu is one big giant trope machine playing and averting expectations and running full gags. That fanservice episode feels damn intentional that runs counter to what one would expect, so it seems like KyoAni stayed true to enhance the hilarious comedy of it all.

The problem with the show isn't the fanservice you landwhales, it's just kinda meh.

The first episode was fun but a bad intro episode, the second episode was straight up boring cliche with mediocre action and comedy. Though, the third episode does look much more promising so the 3ep rule still applies.

It tends to be true, Kyoani for some reason always go with piss poor source materials except for Hyouka and Haruhi.

their business model is
-acquire cheap sources that bigger fish like kadokawa wouldnt even touch + would consider a bad investment. make a 'contest' to circumvent the entire bidding war to acquire the source.
-adapt the source to an anime
-a kyoani anime is literally the greatest most effective commercial advertisement fathomable for a series in the entire industry
-create a profitable series automatically, spin it into other media like goods, events, CDs, and you own all the rights because you acquired it when it was worth nothing

they are leveraging their position as a anime production studio that otaku "cannot not watch", in the shrewdest way possible.

I kinda agree with you OP, though I think the fanservice and girls are ok, but the comedy parts and the MC honestly suck massive dick.

Yes, and? Kyoani can easily cut that off, just like chuu2 pantyshots, amagi jiggling tits, eupho Shuichi, etc, but they didn't.

Remember when Kyoani were supposed to be pure?

But it's only the second ep. Wasn't Hibike low until a certain episode?

>>136149499
It's one of my least favorite by them so far. Like many have already said, it's generic as hell, calling out your cliches before doing them isn't charming or funny, shameless fanservice thrown in for no reason, and characters that bring nothing new to the table.

The only good thing I see coming from this is doujins, screencaps, and webms. Unless it somehow takes drastic turn.

TL;DR Kyoani's take on a run-of-the-mill battle harem; watch with your dick.

Hell, usually I'm ok with KyoAni's 'pandering' works ie Chuu2 and I hear people called Amaburi as such. They had interesting premises at least.
>>
>>136154434

>>136154907
It's not a battle harem, just a standard ecchi comedy.

KyoAni cannot into interesting stories with good writing anymore. They literally hit the bottom with this one.

>>136154927
How so, anon. No, it's nothing like say Asterisk war but:

>Guy surrounded by girls who have some kind of fondness for him
>So far monster of the week

Unless someone can shed light on the LNs which I can't find anywhere.

Battle harem is just misleading and wrong. There are no battles against people, the battles are just silly things like limbo, kicking, chanting, and sealing. There is no harem because nobody except for maybe Reina likes Haru, and maybe Haru likes Reina too and that's that.
>>
I remember not liking Hyouka during the first few episodes, but I ended up loving it. I also remember not liking Nichijou during the first half of the season. But it ended up being my favorite anime of the decade so far, episode 14 onwards were fucking masterpieces each and every one of them. Amaburi was put on hold because the plot went nowhere during the first 4 or 5 episodes and I also ended up liking it a lot when I marathoned the rest. Remember Lucky Star's first episode and how horrible it was?

KyoAni tends to start lazy with their shows but they always take a turn for the better. First episode of Phantom was good, second not so much, but I wouldn't drop it yet. I'm sure KyoAni will surprise me as the season goes on. I have no doubt about it.
>>
>>136154993

Now that I think back, Reina is the only one who has shown visible affection.

>>136155014
It's just how it's done. None of these characters are interesting and suddenly in the second ep 'HEY LOOK A STRETCHING SCENE' for what reason. Maybe like the guy who quoted me, it may be the central focus ie ecchi so either turn a blind eye to it or enjoy it, even if it is just tossed it.

>>136155037
I'm guessing he was looking forward to another KyoAni work and was let down ultimately.

>>136155110
OK, thanks for the clarification. I was wrong and quickly gave it a label. Let's see how things turn out though. At this point I'll probably keep watching just with my boner.

>Inb4 Just watch hentai anime
>>
>>136155147
Hyouka's third episode was a masterpiece though.
>>
>>136155079
Do you have the data for amaburi?
>>
>>136151704
It's pretty much a cute girls slice of club SoL but with guys though.
It's worth it for Rei.
>>
>but even KnK was much less of a pile of cliches

Knk was one of the most boring things I have seen in my life.
Many thanks, OP. I will skip this anime.

If I understand that thing it looks like it had even lower preorders than this by the second episode and Amaburi ended up selling 6k average if I recall.
>>
>>136155400
>it had even lower preorders

Do you not understand ranking?
Amagi was in Amazon's top10 by the second week.

It did far better than any anime this season is doing.
>>
So how do y'all rank Kyoani shows?

If we look at the post Lucky Star era for me it would go:

Nichijou > Chuuni S1 > Hyoka > KnK > Hibike > Amagi > Phantom so far > K-ON

Didn't watch free so I can't rank it.
>>
>>136149499
What is K-on?
>>
>>136155836
Hyouka > Tamako Love Story > K-On = Nichijou > Euphonium > Chu2 = Amagi > Tamako Market > Free > KnK
>>
>>136155884
Oh and I enjoyed Chu2 and Amagi a lot. Probably my favorite romcoms ever, the real cutoff where things get meh is Free.
>>
>>136155613
I thought that last number were preorders. How many actual preorders did it have at that point then? I usually see that the ranking is very volatile I don't think that's a good measurement so early on.
>>
>>136156079
I don't think you understand how amazon rank stalker works.

Can you answer my question though?
>>
>>136150231
You're insane. There isn't a single thing this show has that wasn't done better in KnK. Music, production values, character designs, etc. And while it had a less interesting premise, it followed through way better.

You should know that your question is nonsensical if you read the goddamn article I linked you.

No one aside from Amazon themselves knows the "actual preorders".
The only data we have is the ranking.
Amazon stalker uses the ranking to calculate the accumulated points and predict the the sales which isn't accurate when you only have 2 weeks of ranking data to work with.

PW has 289 accumulated points at the moment and Amaburi had more than 2,000 points after episode 2, if that's what you want to know.
>>
>>136155147
>>136154907
Hyouka and Hibike are entirely different genres. They warrant more patience because you sense they're building up towards something. For ecchi comedy battle harems you already know in advance the story is complete crap so you have to determine its entertainment value on a per-episode basis.
>>
>waifu-watching

What does this word even mean nowadays?
But I agree, this show is pretty bad.
>>
>>136156341
I feel that KnK is something I should rewatch with a more open mind. Mirai and Aki annoyed the fuck out of me.
>>
>>136155836
K ON = Hyouka = Hibike >>>>>>>> rest
>>
>>136156736
It wasn't until the last 4 episodes that I ended up caring whether or not they were 'together'. Besides, everyone else has so much going on, it's hard to dwell on those two.
>>
>>136155836
k-on and lucky star is basically the only kyoani show that is worth watching

maybe air and kanon too, but you should just read the LN for those
>>
>>136156736
I've come to appreciate it for having the best visuals they've put on TV. The company used it as a rare chance to nurture some newbie talent as well.

I still think Hyouka is visually their best, but Hyouka, K-On!!, KnK, and Euphonium absolutely knock everything else out of the park. Not even a contest.
Hell, even Phantom World looks better than most.

I like the sound of waifu-watching. It's like bird watching. Gives the impression we're living in the moment by observing whatever comes by rather than our standards being nonexistent for consuming entertainment.
