ITT: Good ideas with terrible execution
You can choose one (1) series, and you will erase all your memories of it so that you can experience it again
what do you choose?
I mean think about it, it disguises itself as a comedy, but I'm really considering that there might be another layer to it.
In the beginning, they joke around a lot about working long hours and all that, but it's brushed off to the side really quickly and not treated as much more than a joke. However, these jokes become more frequent and more out of character of the general tone of the show as it progresses.
And then there's this scene which I think is really telling. It's just too convenient for Aoba to longing stare at a family right when the sleep deprivation is kicking in. A lack of sleep made me really depressed when I did that for a long period of time, but luckily I was in a position where I just decided to sleep more and became normal again.
Aoba doesn't have this luxury. I think New Game! only disguises itself as a light hearted CGDCT anime as a rhetorical device to contrast the friendly image that must be kept up at work with the ridiculous and counter-productive lengths gone to to achieve this goal.
Aoba is a symbol representing the average Japanese worker, and Ko is a symbolizes the the "goal" of the worker. Aoba, starting off happy about work, will only get more sleep deprived and more depressed, and will spend more and more time just wishing she could be someone else (pic related is the first time this happens and it begins to happen more in the future as people get more depressed). Eventually, once she hits rock bottom with depression, the delusion will kick in. She will eventually start to become happy with her shitty hours and pay, and finally become like Ko: wasting her life away on shitty games with no free time or no emotional releases, and somehow being happy about it. And then, the journey of the Japanese worker is complete. Instead of improving her own situation, she convinces herself that she is okay with it, and lives till death with that mindset.
Of course, this is all speculation, but I'm thoroughly convinced that New Game! is brimming with figurative language and symbolism that communicates a much deeper message than initially implied. Aoba is only figuratively happy. Ko is only figuratively enjoying her life. I only figuratively want to destroy Nene's mature 18-year-old adult college student ass.
But really New Game is truly this generation's Evangelion.
Just saw the first episode and this some REAL boring moeshit, how the fuck is this AOTS?
Why didn't Homura try to recruit more magical girls outside of Mitakihara and overcome Walpurgisnacht with numbers?
>Liking a walking skeleton like Krul
There is nothing wrong with skeletons. This incessant smear-campaign is really dragging down the general quality of /a/ and ruining what could otherwise be a good and diverse community. Some of our best posters are skeletons.
Stop the hatred.
>implying you wouldn't let krul bite you
When properly analyzed as a character, can Griffith really be said to have done anything wrong?
>Fuck the princess knowing the consecuences to him and his friends
>Sacrifice all his friends
>Rape his best (girl)friend in front of his best (boy)friend, who is also dating with her
what do you thing
Is this the best anime ever?
It has an original theme and not the usual shonen, harem garbage anime.
Onodera should have won.
>1 month later
>Literally noone remember that generic tsundere firstgirl #913481 won
Was this some kind of anime you watched?
I don't remember it.
It's probably best to just move on.
Final cover of the anniversary book revealed.
Also, Yen Press is doing a second printing, because of course they are.

UK send one of the thirteen apostle ( the authority still did not admit the death of liu yunde ) William McLeod to Australia, to prepare an attack on japan's newly built artificial island, used for extracting marine resources, at Okinawa
3/10, magic association kanto branch. On the surface, Maya sent tatsuya and miyuki to attend the 5th year memorial as the party involved in the Okinawa incident. In truth, due to foreign power previously hurting 10mc and defense force's reputation, they wanted to put in place considerable manpower to prevent external threat from happening. (Although the preview only mention about yotsuba and independent magic battalion).
Shizuku invited miyuki to attend a party to commemorate the completion of the artificial island. (Because it is sponsored by kitayama family). Miyuki informed that her family required her to attend a memorial. Both party agreed to talk when there is time.
Miyuki change the way she call tatsuya from "onii sama" to how minami would call tatsuya, "tatsuya sama".
Because isori senpai has helped in building the artificial island, he has been invited to the island completion party. Kanon, hattori, azusa, sayaka and kirihara tag along for their graduation trip.
Tatsuya and miyuki is very worried that they might get involved with the conflict but couldn't tell them.
Before the preview ended, tatsuya and kazuma discuss about this Okinawa mission.
Superior Yotsuba babies soon. Seems like things are getting ready for more onii-sama antics.
Someone explain this to me.
Saw the newest chapter for Gleipnir was released today. Going to dump last months as well since I forgot too if anyone is interested. All thanks for the TL goes to Jag as usual.
