So what exactly is Mugi's background? She's heavily implied to be of partially Finnish ancestry (hence why she's the one blonde in a school of black and brown-haired Japanese girls), with her last name suggesting that the Finnish comes from her mother's side--that is, a Japanese businessman married a Finnish woman and had Tsumugi. However, blonde hair is a recessive gene, so shouldn't she have brown or black hair? This opens up the possibility of her being fully Finnish but that her parents changed their surnames after moving to Japan.
Is this the worst written show of all time?
Seriously the show looked so good, and had some interesting ideas, but holy fuck is it a train wreck of a story.
Worse than half of the trash that comes out every season?
Wose than the Cellphone isekai show
None of it makes any sense.
But for those who have no idea how bad this is here are some plot points.
Apparently 'god' is some 16 year old girl who go raped by her father and then split her personalities into a 10 year old girl. Why is she god? Never explained.
Around 1000 years after this 'god' exists a super futuristic world where all human needs are taken care off runs off super power satellites.
For some reason an AI which represents a 10 year old girl, and a 16 year old girl who was raped by her father can combine to become the key to this super AI world.
Since the system is so old it's falling apart, but for some unexplained reason if they combine it can repair itself and humans can live in utopia longer.
God for some reason lives in a hidden space elevator, which is garded by a faction which thinks this super AI is a god like figure and warships them.
The warshippers turn out to actually be clones of the 16 year old girl who was raped in 2000, pre 1000 year skip, so they could create this key.
There is a faction who wants to take down the satelatite, and manage to capture both the 10 year old ai and 16 year old girl.
However because plot convience (I can literally think of no other reason) the 16 yeaar old girl decides she wants to see if she can convince the religious cult otherwise so she runs away back to them.
FUUUUCKKKKK it's so bad. It's sooooo internally inconsistent. It maakes NOOOO FUCKING SENSE WHAT SO EVER.
What was your favorite anime in high school?
Rate my wife /a/
I AM ...
Manga > Anime
It's good but it will probably fly over your head since you have to know a lot of anime and the personal stories of many of the staff and a fair amount of japanese culture both obscure and mundane.
Hoeh! Are you going to watch the new CCS?
Why don't more shows have scenes like this?
Who is the thirstiest girl in anime?

Have you ever had a really bad trip on a high dose of Mushrooms or LSD? I've got a theory, I think that Serial Experiments Lain was inspired by a bad trip on psychedelic drugs.
Fear, confusion, ego-loss, loss of contact with reality, abstract thoughts, deep thoughts about family, suicidal thoughts, paranoia, hallucinations, isolation and etc. Lain also looks high as fuck most of the time. Those weird power pole sounds, the echoes sounds is exactly the same sounds you hear when you're on psychedelic drugs.
I can't think of an anime, movie or even books to describe a bad and deep "trip" on psychedelic drugs better than Lain.
So a new persona 5 anime is coming out next year
It's going to be shit like every other Persona anime before it.
How exactly do you get drunk from a few chocolates?
Is there a more iconic ending in anime than this?
Will Japan ever mourn another character like they did with Rikiishi?
