Have they ever made a good show?
In the late 2000's you'd think they could do absolutely no wrong the way people went on about them. They still kind of do, just not really in the same over the top glowingly positive way.
I want to watch Kyo shows but their shows never end/never are a complete adaptation.
I'm just not really sure where to start.
Depends on what you like, honestly. I personally care a thousand times more for characters than for plot. A story could have a very intricate and well written story or the world being in danger or whatever, but if I don't care a bit for any character in one episode, I'm just going to find myself unable to give a shit about the show. It's already happened with Kekkai Sensen and Dimension W for me, both of them were praised by a lot of people, but when I watched them I found them really boring and couldn't get past half an episode of Kekkai Sensen and one and a half of Dimension W. But in KyoAni shows I usually find myself interested in the characters so I find them easy to watch, and I also like how KyoAni puts a lot of attention into how characters think and act, so I'm way more interested in that.
More like 2006-10.
Their artwork and animation are pretty good, but they seem to have trouble picking stories. And sorry, but well-crafted artwork will only get you so far; pic related.
Pretty much this.
If I'm not invested in the characters it's bad to me, even something like Kyoukai no Kanata had a meh plot but the characters were interesting and entertaining enough.
Also Phantom World failed in the character aspect, don't know what happened there.
Why are people afraid to watch Free? Too insecure about their sexualities?
>Disappearance was fairly good
Is this what neo-/a/ believes now?
Literally what? You should be thankful the movie is that long, and didn't compromise any of the source material.
It was a perfect adaption with stellar KyoAni visuals. A great wrap up to the series.
I don't care about how faithfully adapted the source was. Almost every scene in the movie is just a little bit longer than it really needs to be and there's plenty of random fluff that just doesn't fit the tone of the story.
If you want to talk about random fluff, Tamako Love Story it's ravaged with that shit.
Honestly, most of the movie was Tamako's "OMG INNER CONFLICT", for the final payoff of running for the train/love cliche.
It's obviously a thing in the show, yes, but that doesn't mean it makes sense. There's no reason at all for him to think that the changing of worlds would result in Asahina no longer having a mole. It also matches poorly with the rather desperate and serious nature of the scene.
No, he was trying to prove that he knew her by pointing out one of her secrets (and something she didn't even know about until Kyon pointed it out originally), but it just made the situation worse.
It strikes me as a weird joke in a rather serious scene. It's really not even in character for Kyon to ask a question like this in any case.
As a side note, I think the movie is good, I just don't think it's the best thing ever.
>tfw they tell you to read the book/manga instead
