>>137621503 I have and I loved it, though it could have made the yuri pandering more subtle/less artificial given that it gave the impression that it was made to boost sales rather than being actually part of the story.
>>137621503 You probably shouldn't say any series is extremely good on here, well unless you want people downing your opinion.
I honestly think Hyouka is a masterpiece, from a production point of view, it's probably one of the best looking tv series of all time. To the story, in which they actually worked with a novelist. Anyone who says they thought the mystery was boring never ever reading fucking mystery in the first place, they were incredibly fresh. I don't know why people were expecting yet another murder mystery.
>>137623379 I have yuri goggles but they don't malfunction too often, and they only work when it's obvious that there's actual hints of yuri (regardless if it's subtext or canon). Though I come from a country where close relationships with girl don't necessarily equate to lesbianism so my default mode is "they're just really close friends".
>>137623715 I chuckled. You honestly believing this is amazing to me. Take away the cute girls, the forced yuri crap, the shitty filters and the melodrama......you gotta very average show with very little redeeming qualities. The sound is the only thing worth mentioning about it.
>>137623886 Honestly KS bored me to death and I dropped it in episode 1. It had been half the episode and I didn't know anything about the main character even, much less the world. Same happened with Dimension W. If I don't care about the characters, the story means jack shit to me.
>>137623886 Well, I had put KS above UFO during the start of the season but Kekkai was inconsistent in terms of quality and some episodes were quite boring. UFO was consistent from start to finish and featured many interesting characters.
>>137624227 Like I said it's literally american comics done by japan so that's to be expected, but ufo wasn't consistently great it was only consistently good. It can be said about pretty much every anime, but ufo is super predictable. Characters had a good dynamic together, but they weren't particularly interesting themselves.
>>137624472 Ping Pong had a clear message: "If you have the natural talent to be great at something, you owe it to yourself to try your hardest. But regardless of whether or not you have talent, you should play the sport to have fun and enjoy it."
Euphonium was more about the first part of that than the second. In Ping Pong there was only one winner, but all the other players who lost still felt equally fulfilled for having played worthy opponents. In Euphonium, had they lost at the end, everyone would be sad and cry and Reina might have committed Seppuku.
>>137625092 There's nothing "unusually well written" about it, unless all you watch and read is garbage.
The characters are all just standard archetypes and cliches for the competition club series and the only people who think this does anything new or interesting are people who fap over everything Kyoani does or have never watched a sports/competition series in their life.
>>137626536 Why not? Nearly every major character in the show has an effective character arc and all of them have a distinct personality that doesn't seems to fall specifically into any give archetype. Why do you think they aren't well written?
>>137626605 > all of them have a distinct personality that doesn't seems to fall specifically into any give archetype This is irrelevant to me. I know some people are tired of the archetypes or whatever, but I enjoy them well enough for an average show and don't think breaking out of them is itself worth celebrating. The point of my comparison was that Euphonium's characters weren't any more engaging than the average character - they have very basic, common concerns and motivations that didn't feel like they were communicated or expressed exceptionally enough to make them really stand out. Kumiko's sounds and faces were fun, for sure, but that's sort of separate from the drama/development (and also the million comparisons people made to Watashi grated a bit, because Watashi was way more fun). Nothing about the rest really made me particularly want to watch or sympathize with those characters above others.
>>137627004 >they have very basic, common concerns and motivations that didn't feel like they were communicated or expressed exceptionally enough to make them really stand out What do you mean by this? What is a "basic, common concern?" Is contemplating your future and how you want to approach life really all that basic? Common sure, but I would argue that all real issues tend to be common on some level. As far as communication, how did it fail? Or alternatively, how do you think it could have been done better? Or perhaps offer show that handled similar issues better?
>Kumiko's sounds and faces were fun, for sure, but that's sort of separate from the drama/development How so? Surely a characters actions and reactions are part of how they're developed no?
