It's not, /a/ hates anything remotely CG even though Gonzo worked their ass off to blend it with multiple layers.
I like Last Exile, it gets painful from shitposting especially when Senpai aired and it was justified. Although I didn't survive the 4 episode pandering so I was pretty prejudiced, Gonzo did jump shark to blatant pandering, yet so did every other company since then.

Tower of Druaga:

I usually hate cg, but I didnt think last exile was that bad, although I haven't seen it for a long time so maybe I'm wearing nostalgia glasses

FUCKING THIS.

Why was everyone lusting after Claus's dick all of a sudden?

/a/ wasn't really bothered by the CG as much as the Senpai series.

For me the only thing that bothered me was the MC
>>
>>137757946

I can't even remember that happening.

The Last Exile was one of my first anime so I was young and innocent then, naive to the ways of the anime world.

Gonzo's a different case, they literally got bought out and had half their old staff leave.

beast player erin was great, but I just didnt get into it, idk why

maybe it just had slow pacing at first

Umineko

Not the best anime ever but I would give it a solid 8/10 for its originality.

Overlord:

Gonzo already went to shit before they resorted to pandering hard, though. Aside from the Gokumi studio, they basically did nothing worthwhile between 2006 and the buyout.
>>
>>137758201
It's a horrible adaption, play the damn sound novel you lazy ballsack. Higurashi's VN is better than both anime yet the anime were still adaptions worth watching, therefore not universally despised. Umineko anime is just trash in comparison.

I don't know how much of a retarded newfag you have to be to "finally" find fucking Umineko and think it's good just because it doesn't have high schoolers.

this ones a real sleeper:

- some of the best character development I've seen in a show
- interesting universe
- great characters
- political intrigue
- unfortunately the show kinda loses direction near the end and goes off on a random tangent

I enjoyed erin, but there are quite a lot of flaws in it. For example, the VA for adult Erin is laughably bad. Most of the pacing is much poorer in the second half as well. I feel like it's a series that has a lot of good ideas but suffers from very poor execution, like Log Horizon..

Terra e is probably a noticeable underrated show. Hardly anyone can make it past the first 5 episodes because of how shitty the first arc is. Pretty enjoyable after that, though.

This show has a stronger conculsion if you stop at the third arc. Everything dealing with Youko is excellent, with probably the best coming of age story I've seen in anime. It felt that the fourth arc was rushed out for completion's sake. It's best to treat it like an ova.
>>
>>137758876
minus the cgi battles it had worst everything when compared to the first series.
>>
>>137759160
I never even finished the 4th arc since it dragged on forever

>what happened?
>>
>>137759222
You really didn't miss anything. It's a prequel that only fleshes the beginning struggles on founding En. Sadly, there's no resolution in anime for the black kirin subplot.
>>
>>137759268
what the fuck? that was the only interesting part of that arc! I am disappoint
>>
>>137758606
>generic male harem characters
I don't know how you thought that when there are two male leads and only two living women in the whole anime.
>>
>>137759461
eh I just meant the art style and the style of the characters

everything also seemed pretty angsty at first, but it balanced out
>>
>>137758818
Much easier to do with manga compared to anime.

It looked much better, objectively.
Also the Guild had awesome design (it was good in the first one too, but I think in Famu, they outdid themselves)
>>
Denpa Teki Na Kanojo has got to be the most underated ova series of all time. You guys need to give this a try.
>>
>>137759693
I remember a few years ago it was popular here because someone made a really cool gif of it.
I remember it being pretty good too.

wouldn't call Samidare underrated on /a/ in any respect
>>
>>137759672
>Also the Guild had awesome design

the guild had actual designs in the first series, both in characters and ship designs.

silver wings guild consisted of an eyepatch wearing retard his brother and his gay squad. the Ades Federation wasn't the guild they just made use of the the handful that scuttled out of their caves.

First of all, Last Exile is overrated, not underrated. Check anywhere, and the reviews will say great but flawed, which isn't true. It's pretty and greatly flawed, making for an okay anime that's only worth watching for the visuals.

Your points mostly aren't true, either. Most of the main characters stay static; Lavie stays nervous and tsun, Claus stays a determined follower, and Alex stays a brooding jackass.

The plot is crap. The first half takes too long, and there are numerous contrivances to move things along as if they suddenly realized they forgot to mention the important stuff the crew wasn't directly experiencing- the most severe is episode 13, where the entire freaking Disith nation freezes or evacuates to Anatoray, mostly offscreen. The ending was only narrowly surprising because of all the obvious stuff that they squirmed to avoid mentioning- it was obvious from the get go that something was weird about a giant wind field separating two nations. There was no tone shift- it started grim and ended grim.

I think that people who know of it think highly of the manga, but a large portion of /a/ simply doesn't know about it. Underrated is not the best way to describe it, perhaps underread would fit it better1.
>>
>>137766774

You could argue the same for Code Geass. R2 was a trainwreck and the show's whole backstory was Pacific Rim-tier stupid, but people have gotten so caught up in criticizing those things that they've ignored how entertaining it is.

>>137764620
First season was just okay in my opinion. It had a lot of potential, but the action scenes were meh and it did so little interesting. I dropped season 2.

The scene where glasses girl loses her third game was fucking great though. Best plot-line because of how gut wrenching it is. Wish the show was more of that and less stock characters.
>>
>>137769244
most people on /a/ that read manga outside of Jump probably knows about it

it had a thread everyday after the series finished, most general manga threads have fans talking about it, and Spirit Circle threads might as well be called "Mizukami threads"

it's like saying Kino and Mushishi is underrated, sure it's not talk as much as the current anime but.

Is Last Exile Silver Wing worth watching?

I haven't watched it, but most people say no. But if you have watched 2000 anime and only have seasonal trash left because you've watched everything else, might as well give it a try.

I don't remember too much of the ending, but I remember it got a little worse after a while. But I thought the format in the beginning with the childrens' stories and the battles was great.

Oh sorry, I messed up the spoiler tags. I wanted to mark the spoiler as a spoiler because people tend to use spoiler tags for non-spoilers, so many people look at spoilers without thinking. I wanted to add a spoiler warning in front of the spoiler to remind people that it was an actual spoiler, but seems that after I wrote the first marking for spoiler, I forgot to write the second one that actually activates the black.
