So, the reveal of the NT-D Mode was pretty shit, and it shouldn't have been in the first episode, but the freezeframe at the end was nice.
For all the hype, Marida was really lame.
And I have one question, is Banagher autistic?
I guess I should've said for all the hype I've seen of her on /m/, Marida + funnels made me feel blasé.
It doesn't help that Kshitryia is shit.
Anyways, I will watch the next episode and remark on it as I see fit.
This reminds me of how solid those first 3 episodes where. Like they weren't perfect by any means, but had solid pacing and sense of mystery to the Unicorn itself, the box, and the workings going on behind the scenes with the vist foundation. It was enjoyable. Too bad episode 4 ruins it and it just never recovered.
This anon's pretty much got it. 1-3 are really nice and tight, good pacing, good fight choreography, then they just completely shit the bed for the rest of the series, and concludes with a complete non-ending.
I'd say the biggest fault in the show is just that the rhetoric introduced in the first few episodes never gets adequately explained, only parroted as if that makes it more meaningful; it's frustrating as hell. Really the only good thing about Episode 4 onwards is the one conversation in the diner and the one in the desert.
Kind of a shame, because the first half hour or so of Episode 7 was really tightly paced too.
That's not how you spell Banshee
Its because the majority of the torrington base fight is just the EF grunts standing still while being shot at and advanced on, they completely fucked up the Loni stuff compared to the novel, and because of the character fuck up Banana comes off as a complete faggot at the end.
>>13697790 pretty much has it. Like, it works as a deconstruction of UNDERSTANDING and whatever, but you sort of have to give basically everyone involved a massive benefit of the doubt, and it's just kind of pointless ultimately.
My favourite part about it was how simply, well, understanding the diner owner was. Yeah, humanity fucked things up in the process of trying to fix things, but they're trying, and we aren't perfect. That guy's more woke than anyone else in the entire setting.
agreed. though i did feel 4-7 were still well worth watching, i see how some people would just hate them. but i thought 1-3 were really good.
i honestly loved the NT-D mode reveal
>i honestly loved the NT-D mode reveal
Actually I thought it was pretty solid visually and in sequence. I was mostly speaking to it in its place in the story. Should've been hyped up a little bit more I think.
yeah; might've even made for a really good ending, now that i think about it. i guess i figured the crazy long release schedule might have forced them to reveal it up front... but then, they'd played their best hand already.
>And I have one question, is Banagher autistic?
All MS pilots have to have some degree of emotional instability and demonstrate a lack of poor judgement. If you are the type that equates this with autism, then the answer is yes.
>He's a Newtype. I'm pretty sure that means by definition he's autistic.
Isn't being a Newtype the exact opposite of being autistic?
Newtypes feel the thoughts and emotions of other people.
