Forced drama the animation

Do you mean the plot or the "action sequences"

Mediocre drama with alright characters and good music-segments.
Too much chopin though.

The drama was incredibly poorly handled though. Also whoever thought the way they handled the "comedy" was a good idea should be fired.

I can easily agree the slapstick didn't belong at all.
>>
It was incredibly predictable. And i even managed to remain spoiler free while watching it.
The predictability was kind of frustrating as a viewer to be honest, it felt fairly stock-standard for a drama series, just casting younger than usual characters and focusing it around music and life goals.
Also some parts of it felt downright melodramatic.
>>
Awkward pacing combined with overly dramatic moments makes it come off as highly pretentious.

Music is pretty GOAT otherwise, though.
>>
NTR flags in the beginning triggered me. Blonde seems like a whore so I dropped it 2 episodes in.
>>
>>133108205
To add to this, one of my bigger problems with the show was actually that the way they introduced Kaori made her to me incredibly unlikeable. She did not seem like a nice or good person with how she was introduced, her behavior was downright grating at times.

The way the show handled MCs trauma and the way his circle of 'friends' decided to attempt to cure it made me drop it at episode 4 or 5. It felt like watching people kicking a dog around wondering why it isn't happy that it's being kicked around.
>>
>>133108495
Jeez, you are one of these shounen-retards, who can watch titles only coz of plot twists or cliffhangers? That reddit-tier hate coz of "deaths flags" is ridiculos, we all know how it will end and this is the main conception of this show.
>>
Babby's first dying girl story.

Also, horrible "friends" who constantly physically and emotionally abuse the main character and the manga pretends it's okay because it's played for comedy.

It was utterly sickening.

That's kind of a retarded assumption since drama is one of my favourite genres. The problem i had with shigatsu's predictability isn't that it was predictable, but that it was predictable AND generic.
Was it one of your first drama series' or something?
The thing that i feel the show did the best was the concert scenes, they were good and had a great emotional impact. The rest of the show just didn't live up to that.

I didn't like the concert scenes at all. Many of them were ridiculously overlong, with far too many internal monologues and mentions of "WOW THIS IS SO AMAZING" instead of simply allowing the music to speak for itself. The internal monologues of the musicians were particularly annoying for me, since the high technical skill required for most of the stuff they were playing would have required intense focus from all of them.
>>
>>133109113
>with far too many internal monologues and mentions of "WOW THIS IS SO AMAZING"
Nailed it.

It felt like they were trying too hard to tell you how to feel instead of taking pride in their own compositions.

It's funny how Kumeta is able to laugh at himself. Him being a huge Key fan.

No offensive, but you really look like a shounen, but not drama guy. Drama is about the path but not about the end of this path. If drama is trying to impress you only by its ending, people call it a forced drama. And plot of this show isn't really generic. Give me an example of non-generic anime drama in your opinion to make me understand the difference.

Although it was great regarding the sound part and good with the visual, the history leaned on the same type of plotline through the whole series. (Aciddent, trauma, get better, repeat the above). For a 24 episodes only the main character and the two girls got development despite having tons of characters that could be much more interesting then two of them (arima and tomboy).

This is bullshit. Nearly all dramas focus on building conflict up to a climax, followed by a conclusion which provides the audience with closure and catharsis. This is literally the point of drama.
>>
It's called Shitgatsu for a reason.

>>133109737
If you need some "And they lived happily ever after... BOOOM MC get hit by a car and his wife gets aid" for catharsis i feel sorry for your taste.

not the same anon but holy fuck you're a retard, it's cookie cutter drama plot to have MC fall for a girl who's terminally ill and then dealing with that + some other aspect which in this case is mucic
also drama without carthasis is fucking pointless and the equivalent of blueballing

Are you just pretending to be dumb or are you legit retarded?
>>
>>133109900
Do you not understand what carthasis is? You don't need a tragic or sad ending for carthasis, you don't need a happy ending for carthasis, you don't need any specific kind of ending to achieve a carthatic effect for the viewer/reader.
Look to the conclusion of diebuster for a great example of carthasis in a series with a happy ending, and anime in general.

>>133108334
I like SD and don't mind slapstick that much, but it was handled really badly here. You'd get the tsundere slap in the middle of sad hospital room scenes and stuff.
>>
>>133109900
That's not what I suggested. I just said that the conclusion is one of the most important parts of a dramatic series.

As far as Shigatsu's ending, its as cliche as it gets and loses some impact for that. That said, I though the ending of the show was fine. It was well executed and was one of the few parts of the show where I didn't want to tear out my hair out of either boredom or frustration.
>>
I liked it; 8/10

Man, if you think that its a drama about boy and girl with deadly disease you are only one retard here. Try Ko-n or smt easier for start. And you didnt name me examples of non-generic anime drama, so its a pointless conversation.
BTW one more fact: your life is predictable. You will die and your consciousness will be erased from this world. But can you call it a reason to not love the life?

Manga was better. Yes, I rather have the manga even though is a series with music as a main theme. Why? Adding fucking percussion during a piano performance made me sick. Butchering a classical piece with tacked on shit.

Also the anime treated the audience as retards, jesus fuck. I mean the manga already did it to a degree.

Manga - 8/10
Anime - 0/10
Those wondering, if I remember correctly, it was during EriĀ“s second performance or third.

The most overrated shit I've witnessed.

No it wasn't sad.
No the characters weren't good enough or relatable to get attached with.

It offered nothing but throwing in metaphors and sad music tracks.

Am I suppose to feel sad that she couldn't get her message out because she didn't want to mess up the group dynamics because of her own assumptions?

No they're not, shigatsu isn't about real life, it's fucking fiction.
In real life the way his friend treated his trauma would've in 99% of all cases only caused it to get worse.

Please stop being a fucking idiot.

Monogatari really doesn't have much slapstick, since the tsundere lead is more into threats.
>>
>>133110722
>99% of dramas are about real life
Dramas oftentimes take place in real-life or plausible settings, but the character interactions are always exaggerated or contrived in some way or another. That's because it's a story, not a real event.

Fairly bad. Many things wrong with it in general, but the main thing I'll remember it for is butchering the music with all sorts of shit, interruptions, idiots speaking over it etc. If they had any sense when picking the interpretations they might not have needed to shout over it all of the time. It was really irritating.

People can't watch the show without imagining, that it could happen in a real life, even a fantasy one. Otherwise there will be 0 viewer connection with characters and 0 empathy.

I was just calling you an idiot because your post is almost incomprehensibly dumb.
People can easily watch and enjoy a show about characters that act nothing like how people would in real life, it happens all the time infact.
Characters in fiction often act in ways that exist only to prolong the story without regards to if it makes sense in the setting, for the character of if it's even a sensible thing to do.
It happens all the fucking time in fiction.

There are plenty of ways for a show to create empathy for a character without having viewers relate to a character's 'realistic behavior'

So again, you're a fucking idiot.
