When will this get good? I'm at episode 5 and each episode seems like a torture to watch.
>>
>>137403803
If you don't like it, stop forcing yourself and drop it.

But it's a good torture to watch.

I'm told that most of the first cour after episode 1 involves crawling and heavy breathing. Personally I found one episode of that was more than enough.

If you don't like it by now, just drop it. Maybe go back to it in a few years. At least you're not a first episode dropping shitter.

Though if you like the warring gang stuff, it picks up from the point that you're at, if you don't then it's a long slog to episode 19, where it starts hitting all the right notes.

One of the those things I can't watch not because I think it's bad, but because it's too depressing.

It's weird, bleak and I'm not really sure what it was about but I'll never forget it. Maybe one day when my backlog is gone (haha) I'll rewatch it with Lain.

I watched all of it and i don't remember a thing. What was it about again?

It picks up somewhere around episode 5&6 so I would say stick around until at least this arc is done if you managed to get so far. You'll know when it does.

No it isn't, if you can't keep going through this it simply means it's not for you. Tex is very specific series.

But that's wrong.
There are evidently a lot of people who liked the series overall but didn't enjoy the first few episodes that much.

The first few, slower episodes didn't bother me. They took their time establishing setting and ambiance. I appreciated that, and would like it if more stories could pay that much attention to detail

>>137405185
I loved it from the beginning, so go fuck yourself.
>>
>>137405185
I don't know about others but I loved the series from episode 1, so I'd recommend just dropping this show if you don't like it by episode 5.

>>137405324
And I started enjoying it later.

>>137403803
You have to be patient or not 10 to appreciate it. I get the feeling you don't meet one of those criteria.
>>
>>137404140
I honestly don't get this picture at all. Sure the ending was depressing and it was quite sad from some points of view but the show never really was capable of creating an attachment to get that kind of reaction.
>>
>>137405477

Most of /a/ is faggots that cry when loli looking characters die
>>
>>137405313
Yeah. They do a remarkable job of establishing the city as a character itself and all of the city's factions as they relate to one another. A lot of this is done in the first episode itself, which doesn't rely at all on exposition or dialogue to get that across, while also juggling two or three converging plot threads.

I also think a lot of the emotional intensity of the show is tied to the first few episodes. A lot of people disparage Ichise stumbling around the city ineffectually for a bunch of episodes but a lot of the director's sequences and storyboarding, especially in the second episode, were really memorable.

Being 100% straight, most of /a/ isn't super into loli. Some are, but for the most part it's kind of just a meme.

>I enjoyed the first episodes of Texhnolyze

Go fuck yourselves you contrarian faggots. The general consensus is that the first 5 episodes or so are unbearably slow and drawn out. It really doesn't start picking up steam until somewhere around episode 8 and it doesn't truly get good until somewhere after episode 15.

If you have a tolerance for slow boring bullshit then maybe the first five episodes will appeal to you, but don't expect that everyone will have the patience to sit through two and a half hours of tedious nonsense that at first comes off like it's never going to get to the point.

Now don't get me wrong, the series is great as a whole, but I can't fault anybody for wanting to drop it a couple of episodes in. I came very close to doing it myself until some anons convinced me to keep watching.

Well that's all, you're free to tell me to "go watch Naruto and then kill yourself" now.

But seriously keep going >>137403803, the surface world episodes alone are some of the finest anime that has ever been made.

I don't think it's possible for any sane person to get through Texhnolyze. Episode 6 is the furthest I got.

Gasaraki is another notoriously fucking boring anime
>>
>>137408428
Gasaraki's got some of the best mech combat in anime. You'd have to have ADHD to find it boring.

I think it's really, really funny. I tried getting into it, but only with little success. I'm just too used to fat, old hags.

Sorry anon, I think you just have autism. Extremely dry exposition, characters completely devoid of personality and a plot that move at a snail's pace does not make for a very watchable show unless you have autism.

Well, at least you can agree that no healthy human watches anime.

Enjoying dialogue and not needing constant action and plot twists doesn't make you autistic, it makes you over twelve years old.

Enjoying Gasaraki's infodumps, zero personality characters and repetitive episodes does make you autistic though.

They are not. Story has good continuity.

I'd dispute even this. Miharu maybe, although that's sort of part of her background, but Yushiro has clear motivations and conflicts and struggles with his different allegiances/personal attachments quite a bit.
>>
>>137406994
No, they were fine episodes and great especially in their visuals. Doc reconstructing him, the flowers in the sewer, Yoshi killing that pimp, tons of great scenes.

Then how do you explain all the people in Tex threads that always say something like "stick with it, it gets better" or all the people that admit that they hated it at first and didn't start getting into it until many episodes later?

The 3 episode rule doesn't apply to Texhnolyze, if it did almost no one would ever reach the end.
>>
>>137410230
The first few episodes are consistent with the rest of the show. You just had an immediate knee-jerk reaction and slowly grew to enjoy what you were seeing, that's your problem not the show's. A situation like that could happen with fucking any show. It's not like the show pulled a madoka and you could play the "I've been tricked card," it's literally the same show throughout.
>>
>It's starts off shit
It really doesn't but what the show doesn't do in the first ~6 episodes is present any sort of story or progression so it feels like nothing is actually happening.
>>
>>137405477
>not getting attached to well develop characters
Pleb, die.
>>
>>137403803
Episode 1 is a masterpiece. You are presented the whole of Lux in it, the characters, the factions, the politics, even some foreshadowing and 4th wall breaking, but you only notice this after having seen the whole series.
>>
>>137410068

Ichise
>I don't immediately punch people anymore

Onishi didn't really develop or change but he was explored and was the one with the most "impact" but I still didn't feel it really.

Ran
>autistic but helpful person who doesn't want to do their job because it hurts

The characters may have been characterised well but they weren't developed in a way that attracts attachment.
>>
>>137403803

>>137412324
>Ichise
He has the most character growth in the entire show. His making peace with his father, his last 'talk' with Ran and the fact that he even decides to go back to Lux after being presented the opportunity to live a life free of conflict on the surface by Saginuma, makes that pretty clear. It's no coincidence that the last images of the show are what we're left with.

>>137412803
Sure but those aren't really the most well developed parts of him. The most well developed aspect of him was as I said, he no longer immediately punched people.

This was caused by him reassessing himself after his encounter with Ran about his future, his time with Onishi and his time with the literal faggot who's name I can't remember.

This still doesn't create emotional attachment or investment in a character.
>>
OP here, I'm at episode 10 and my opinion hasn't changed that much.

But since I've got this far, I'm not going to drop.

When I watched Texh, I couldn't watch it in one go like most other shows, I had to take breaks, sometimes a few weeks, between sessions. I persevered and I do not regret it.
