Why the fuck do people like this? "lets watch it, its supposed to be a classic", but its a retarded plot for teenagers with shitty gore and tits and dumb characters.

I thought I'd complete it because its just 13 episodes but I'm struggling and I can't finish this crap. Why so overrated????

You have to admit the OP is a work of art though.
>>
>>120473620
This, it's one of the best OPs of all time. How the fuck did that happen?
>>
>>120473620
yeah, but probably some horned red-haired nude girl killed the OP author right after it was finished, so they had to put the janitor to draw instead
>>
>>120473620
This.

Also I think the pacing of the plot and the motives for the characters are explored and wrapped up nicely enough, even if they aren't entirely original.

It's a solid beginner anime.
>>
>>120473585
My little sister likes it. I could not finish the first episode.

"Look anon, the head is flying off! Oh, now I missed the best part, let's watch it again."

Yeah, nothing for me, I don't like gore.

And I got the first image captcha.

I really wish more anime would reference artists like elfen lied did with Gustav Klimt

I think it's masterpiece with deep meaning.

Sora no Woto and Yuri Kuma come to mind.

Officer, I'm being trolled.
>>
>>120473931
The backgrounds are quite unoriginal, and the characters react in weird ways, its like a 12 year old kid had written them

However you may be right on the "entry level anime" thing, many who like it watched it young and without much experience
>>
Mostly nostalgia.

Remember that this came out in 2004, and internet based fansubbing was still a pretty new thing back then. I think for a lot of people this was the first "edgy" anime they saw, and so it left a big impression even though it wasn't really that good.
>>
>>120474014
I agree, those both have a lot of imagery and references to western art and in yurikuma's case, western film as well.
>>
>>120474060
2004 I was watching Paranoia Agent and GitS:SaC and it was 4 years after FLCL, and I wouldn't be ashamed today of any of them
>>
>>120474014
Sora no woto was such a clusterfuck and it somehow worked.

Welcome to Lynn.

It was one of the first series I watched subbed. Sure it may not be good and yes it is entry level but I'll never forget it at least. You always remember your first time anon.
>>
It was always crap and the people who liked it were teenagers
>>
>>120474188
Yes, because those were actually good shows. Elfen lied wasn't a good show, but it had plenty of shock appeal and it came at a time when a lot of people were just getting into anime. Because of that lots of people remember it a lot more fondly than they should.
>>
I self don't bother watching it after found out that it contain gore and edgy stuff (Because I was expected it to be more lighthearted).

If I want to watch gore I will watch Fist of the North Star instead.

It's just edgy for the sake of being edgy, like "omg they all died how sad DD:"

The only one who I know liked the show was a classmate of mine in middle school. She was the kind to color her hair every other week, later dropped out of high school and is pregnant now at 19.

It's for shit people with shit tastes.
>>
>>120475025
I liked it when I was a teenager too. It had all the edge I wanted.
>>
>>120475095
This. Took me a year and 20 other shows to realize how bad it was.

Threads like this make me feel less alone. Thank you for your good taste /a/

It's ok, anon. Just remember to try to stop the cancer spread by not mentioning this edgy shit show to anyone under 18.

Remember, only you can stop the cancer.

I watched it as a teen and i don't even remember that scenes. I remember that room of blood and dead children tough. Also i hated that lovestory crap and the ending.

I liked stuff like Slayers and Lodoss more.

The anime is absolute shit, read the manga.

>>120475678

Are those two still worth watching?
>>
There is too much gore, IMO.
And this is coming from a guy who thought the Kanbaru fight scene from monogatari was just fine.
>>
>>120476067

That wasn't bad because it was done well and wasn't trying to violently jerk some feels off your shaft.
>>
I tried watching it, and I think I stopped after Episode 5 or something
It just wasn't my cup of tea. The OP gave me serious vibes of something to come, especially since all of the good shit I've heard about it, but eh, I didn't like it.

No you moron, it's good for comical levels of gore. Besides the OP that's the only redeeming feature it has.

Uh, what? This show is mostly either hated on or called shit by the majority. That's far from overrated. If anything it's underrated because of how extreme people's opinions are.

Why not just watch higurashi and giggle along with the cast if bloodied kids is all you're after.

It's a really dumb show, despite how on the mark the OP is.

I actually think the opening is one of the biggest reasons for the success of the show. It makes people expect something artsy. If it weren't for that, maybe people would see the show for the babby's first tits and gore that it actually is.

A better show that's just as edgy is Mnemosyne, and that's actually a decent show.
>>
I liked it back when I was a shitty teen, but I also liked Gaia so younger-me's tastes are shit and should be ignored

Probably the best OP I've seen though.
>>
>>120477082
>Watch Higurashi
>Watch

Anon you are cruel, you know that?
>>
>>120473620
I enjoyed it and I still do and I've watched hundreds of anime, I don't mind gore at all, I enjoyed the story overall although I did feel some scenes were out of place, however if it was explored properly it could've been even better, even then it's a 7-7.5/10
>>
>>120477043
/a/ != most of the internet

That guy has seen 1 show then?
