This is the most pretentious shit I've ever seen. I feel like I'm about to spontaneously sprout a neckbeard and fedora. Does it get any better or am I better off dropping it now?
>This is the most pretentious shit I've ever seen.
Feel free to elaborate. I doubt you have much to say considering you can't even think for yourself, though.
The characters are all retarded an unrealistic, no one acts that way in real life. Fedoracore shit like pic related that has no real meaning other than to try and make you feel stupid because the writer thinks he's smarter than you. Bad animation in general with shitloads of quality. Is just girls that eat this shit up cause I don't get it?
I love it when people use the word pretentious for 'Why doesn't it just tell me what symbolism means, I don't do critical thinking'
I am no sockpuppet, Utena is genuine trash. Just because it makes you think does not mean it is good. Of course there isn't symbolism in it to begin with, but /a/ wouldn't believe that since their TVTropes alliance propaganda.
Movies take books and add to them. ADD. Your wasting your time on a obsolete medium and I'm the one that's not very bright? You only read books because you think you're smarter than everyone else.
Shouldn't you be sleeping or doing your homework? You have school tomorrow!
>there isn't symbolism in it to begin with
I'm not even that much of an Utena fan, but that statement is about as obviously wrong as one can possibly be.
>pretentious: attempting to impress by affecting greater important, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.
>does NOT mean confusing, symbolic, or a person with a big vocabulary
Please learn the meaning of English words before applying them to Utena.
Compelling literary criticism, anon. The world needs more eloquent folk like you.
Just kidding, Utena made you feel stupid and now you're upset. That's pretty pathetic, because Utena's themes are not complex. Did you know, anon, that the animals in Animal Farm are acting out the rise of Communism? Yeah, tomorrow in class we'll be reviewing metaphors. Try not to sleep through it this time.
Well, you're obviously retarded. But that being said, Utena is pretty wonky for a while. I found it slow and it did retread a lot of the same ground multiple times. But it also gets better, a lot better. It doesn't get less "fedoracore"
>>>/r9k/but the characters and plot become significantly stronger. The first third of the series I was pretty lukewarm about, the second third picked up a bit, and the final third really nailed it. Also the absurdism and art nouveau throughout are actually great.
Sounds like someone's a little upset over cartoons because they're too dumb to get it.
Plus you should watch multiple times to catch everything.
