What the hell is the allure to this show. The first 3 episodes are utter trash , but everyone seems to think this show has potential. Can someone fill me in on why this is watchable?

The first episode hooked /a/ by seemingly reinforcing their idea that all women are whores.

It looks good, but the writing is nothing special to say the least.
This show's popularity leaves me in the dark.

2nd ep was stupid shit and should have either been compressed into the first or not have happened at all

Basically because it tells the story of two people who may or may not be innocent and are judged to either be reborn or thrown into the abyss while playing a game. It's original to me, whats not to like?
>>
>>120485193
>the writing is nothing special to say the least

What does that even mean? The writing is not sophisticated enough? It's too simple? It doesn't have enough depth?
>>
>>120484133
Interesting characters/premise, the first episodes gave reasons for /a/ shitposting, maybe you don't like it because the show centers on drama between characters but it wasn't "utter trash" and it was average but other shows this season aren't that great.

It's highly repetitive and uninteresting.
Hopefully they'll start focusing more on the other side characters soon, or at least bring in some people that have a conflict that isn't trite and dull like the previous two.

Haven't watched a single episode yet, just parts of the Death Billiard OVA.

I'm just constantly listening to the OP and imagening the show to be about bar & casino shenanigans in some sort of pseudo-hell with lighthearted-yet-dark humor.

Don't you dare crush my illusion.
>>
>>120485934
So far it's just been surprise revelations piled on surprise revelations, all about these characters we just met and know nothing else about, while the show mostly lets the recurring characters be static.
>>
>>120486566
That would be so much better than what we're actually getting. A more lurid underworld atmosphere could go a long way here.
>>
>>120484133
I liked the movie, but I don't want to watch 11 more episodes of the same thing over again.
>>
>characters are uninteresting
>plot is uninteresting moral bullshit

The draw of the show was what people expected it to be, and its quickly turning into shit.
>>
>>120486615
Except it isn't the underworld, so an underworld atmosphere wouldn't fit.
>>
>>120486722
I really don't understand this system, it's like a weird crossbreeding of Abrahamic and Eastern philosophy. I mean isn't the whole point of being reincarnated so you learn to accept everything? And your reward is reliving all your worst shit forever in "the void" in this? It makes no sense
>>
>>120486993
> still mad the buddhism theory was wrong
>>
>>120486377
Why are you watching an episodic anime if you don't want repetitive?

Did you post the same hot opinions about Jigoku Shoujo when it aired?
>>
>>120486722
I meant underworld as in criminal, like a seedy speak-easy. You didn't like my pun ;_;. And I don't see why the fact that it's not the final destination would make an underworld atmosphere not work - souls of dead people are being judged through games connected to their nerves; I wouldn't bat an eye if it had just been a typical underworld, although I probably wouldn't have picked it up, because that would have been really boring.
>>
>>120486993
What don't you get?
Reincarnation, good. Void, bad.
They even put some masks on top of the elevators to make it easy to understand.
You're just confused because it doesn't exactly fit with any esisting philosophies?
I think it's better that way; if they went with an already existing afterlife system, like traditional christian heaven and hell for example, they would also have to use the traditional moral values of said system to judge the souls.
That would kinda kill the point.
>>
>>120487209
There's structural constants, and then there's a repeat of the same episode from a different perspective.

simple
>>
>>120484133
Because it's a thought provoking show. It shows you that humans at their core are disgusting creatures and no episode three didn't prove shit because they still would have ended up like Matchy and Takashi down the line.

I wasn't even the first guy; I was just pointing out that criticizing that element wasn't unreasonable.

>>120487668
Oh, well okay then. But I'm pretty sure the first 2 episodes were split to introduce the hime cut's personality separately from showing the story of the dickwad couple.

If they make a habit of reusing animation though I'd definitely start questioning the longevity of the show.

I think we're gonna see consistent episodic content until about episode 5 or so, and then it's going to be abbreviated couple scenarios interspersed with drama and shit going down involving this 3-month term thing and children's book Nona has, etc.


This isn't Mushishi, they're building up to something. We just don't know what yet.

It reinforces /a/'s belief of human interaction being a facade and that all people are terrible on the inside.

I didn't like watching it because Decim is horse-faced.

I think Lesbears might be it.

The last episode was great, what are you talking about?
>>
>>120488232

The two possibilities I was playing around with were that either Quindecim is also a sort of purgatory, or she's a new Arbiter-in-training.

But that's a cool theory. It would be a terrible ending if she woke up and forgot everything, though.

>>120492222
I forget. I'll have to watch it again, but I remember figuring it out when I saw it. The old man was shitty somehow, and the man didn't know any better because he was dealt a shitty hand at life. He really wanted to be a good person or something so he got to be reincarnated. I don't remember why the old man was shitty, though.
