What the FUCK went wrong?
Little Busters thread? Kud Wafter is coming soon. what is she a best?
My fucking heart, what was the point of telling the kid to bully her and then bullying the kid?
MY FUCKING HEART CANT TAKE THIS.
You know what fucking pisses me off the most. The piece of mc bullied this girl to tears and she had a miserable time at the school.
Years later when everyone is doing their own thing and he is a loner, he meets the girl again and through time she forgives him. She even has feelings for the fucker.
Get that. The piece of crap that bullied you is now a love interest. That isn't how trauma works. She should have gotten a pen and stabbed in the hand the moment he got close enough to her. Fuck that faggot.
Why is everything about this character so sexy?
UH YOU GUYS??!
Will Violet Evergarden dethrone Nichijou as the most well animated Kyoani show?
It's up to you Julia. Does he live...or...does he die?
>tries to NTR his best friend and steals his girl
>she refuses every advance and chooses to kill herself than to be with him any longer
>puts her on such a high pedestal that he won't even think about forcing her to do anything he wanted to
>spends his time caressing and talking to his RealDoll version of her
Shin was a huge loser when you think about it. He got reverse NTRd.
Which was the Slayers season?
I honestly can't tell what archetype Kukuri is supposed to belong to. Her personality is contradictory in a lot of ways. Sloppy writing, or the sign of a realistic and fully-realized character?
This is cute.
Hey /a/, I wanted to talk about some theories about anime. I was wondering if ya'll could shell out your theories and hypotheses as to why anime openings seem to be so much more interesting and awesome than the openings of other forms of entertainment? Beyond just the pure attention grabbing purpose.
Anime is defined by its tropes, and the 1:30 OP/ED has itself become a trope.
I think that opening sequences have largely decayed in US television due to the nature of how commercial breaks work. US TV has a commercial break right after the titles, so the teaser/cold open has become more and more important in actually getting the ball rolling on an episode and establishing the scene and tone - a long opening sequence just wastes time. It's different in Japanese TV which only has a break at the 15-minute mark so the OP's role as 'overture' hasn't needed to change the way that US televsion has forced it on their own shows.
Because the songs played during the openings make tons of money for the music industry. Everyone wants their song played before a popular anime, which has led to the openings being super well-animated (the same animation budget as an average episode, or so I've heard somewhere). It's like asking why superbowl commercials are better than regular commercials; lots of money is changing hands, so everyone wants that minute and a half to be as memorable as possible.
Japs care less about air time. Any time for long ops/eds could be used for ad space. Anime relies less on actual ads. Also ops/eds are 99% of the time full blown songs done by real bands that can be viewed as part of the anime's merch pool. It also helps build recognition by having a song associated with your property. Good ops/eds are often high budget and feature higher levels of detail and key frames than the actual episode. They're not cheap and easy to make when done well, so one could assume that theyre worth while in one way or another.
From an entertainment side, ops/eds serve to help convey tone and tonal shift. Don't skip ops.
