Are you kidding? Rokka was great. It's basically "Everyone is horrible apart from the protagonist: The anime"

They wanted to compete with Grisaia for the most butchered adaptation. Though it got me to read the light novels, I'll give them that.

I mean it's ok, but the animation is nothing special, and the series gets bogged down in the whodunnit stuff for ages. It's nowhere near as long in the LNs

Nah. Angel Beats! was consistent in quality. I was unimpressed with the last episode, but that's it.

rokka started slow as fuck and I almost dropped it, but after they get to the temple and Fremy became dere the show got pretty good.

Too bad it flopped.

I'll never understand why people liked rokka so much.
It took 5 episodes for the show to really get started and then it had 2-3 super solid episodes and then it just went back downhill again.

this one for me. even the first season was kinda shit. the second season just said fuck it and went balls deep into the turd.

No, a closed room mystery for 12 goddamned does not make a good show, hell the fucking book spoils you in the bloody prologue, the next 3 volumes that I read weren't much better. The fig was a master asspuller and I have no idea why you idiots praise the guy as some revolutionary villain.

>>
>>134138937
It starts off like "Alright, off to kick the elder god's ass and get some shit going" and then gets stuck in a shitty back and forth mystery subplot in the exact same bland location for like 8 episodes, and then it's over.
>>
>>134136957
>They wanted to compete with Grisaia for the most butchered adaptation.
I thought P4GA won that title long time ago
>>
>>134138937
It's a closed room mystery where nothing happens for like 8~9 episodes and then it ends, how fun.
>>
>>134138347
But Bunny is still important in the later novels, and Rolonia is the best character anyway.
>>
>>134138835
>hell the fucking book spoils you in the bloody prologue
It didn't really. It just spoiled you that Nashetania tried to kill Adlet, but that could have several reasons, e.g. her honestly believing that Adlet is the 7th.

Also how is being a closed mystery a bad thing in itself? The show was good because it had an interesting plot with a solution that made sense and could (for the most part) actually be deduced from what was shown.
>>
>>134139582
The show bored me to tears and I watched snoozefests like Argevollen and M3 and actually liked them once they were done.
>the solution could be deducted
My ass it could, every single mystery solution was a bloody asspull so far.

Yeah would have been SO MUCH BETTER if it had been another generic as fuck let's kill the demon lord story.
>>
>>134134810
For me its the other way around
It started like a generic anime, like a boy is gonna defeat the evil guys
But when they got to the temple, it became the greatest anime that season, maybe even of the year
>>
>>134134810
The fat cow-pig killed it.
You could hear the thousands of preorders being cancelled the second that fat cow appeared at the end of the last episode.
>>
>>134134936

I used to fucking love this show.
>>
>>134139038
It's funny - I had the complete opposite reaction. I couldn't care less about the typical fellowship fantasy plot, and nearly dropped it at the beginning; it was the rest of the season that made me invest in the characters and actually give a damn about the larger story.

First show to make me actually pick up an LN.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is some sort of meme or what. Were people really disappointed it was a mystery show rather than an adventure? I keep feeling like anyone who posts this must be doing so facetiously. I mean, it's not like the show wasn't explicitly billed as a mystery. Anyone going in to it would have known.

I went in relatively blind; I had just heard the first episode was pretty neat, so I picked it up on a whim. I actually had no clue about the mystery aspect until it came into play.

The anime original episode 3 got my hopes up that Lerche may add some pretty neat stuff to the anime that further fleshes out characters like Megu-nee and elaborates more events that the manga left unexplained.

Instead I got this shit.

They were doing so good too. I'm surprised I didn't drop it.

>>134134810
I didn't hate it because it was a mystery instead of an adventure.

I hated it because it was a shitty mystery, and the final episode with the OTHER extra hero showing up made is even more shit. Fuck this show, and fuck this series.

They kept the dog alive until the last few episodes. IIRC the dog was already dead in the manga. Typical "anime rewrites the manga" bullshit.

The world design for this was great, it's not something you see too often. Look at that magnificent motherfucker too, his design was nice.

The whole whodunit plot was ok but the fiends were atrocious. I would have preferred the action to take place in that neat city instead of some stupid forest, but I guess it was important to the plot.

How did RnY start off generic? How often do we even have anime that give off a particularly pre-European/per-Colonial era Mayan/Aztec theme as a setting or world?

That doesn't come off even remotely generic to me.

I was under the impression that One Piece had never stopped being good. But even if it has, stopping it at Buggy is ridiculously early. Buggy wasn't exactly the sort of ultimate villain you use to cap a series.

Stopping at Alabasta maybe. Or Water 7. But Buggy?

Oh wow, good to see Kagami got into another anime after Lucky Star ended.

It was shit the moment they told you she was a Giftia. It only got worse from there.
>>
>>134160366
lol no
>>
>>134160385
Yes. You could already tell how it's going to end from there and you just knew it was going to be some bullshit drama around muh dead android.

Also it took him like 8 episodes to figure out she has only 1 month left. I mean how retarded do you have to be to come work at a giftia retrial company and not ask about their remaining time the first minute you meet. Also he knew she was with the company for at least 6 years already so that should raise suspicion by itself.
>>
>>134134810
Like, 90% of all anime. But Japan can't into story telling. Especially anime.
>>
>>134160467
>You could already tell how it's going to end from there

Yes but the journey is more important considering it is 98% of the show length. If I wanted to watch anime for the endings I would read spoilers.
>>
>this show is really good guys, really
No, it's shit and no amount of hipster tears is going to change that.
>>
>>134160518
Granted. By even everything in between was shit. Isla was so fucking boring I don't even know what MC retard saw in her. Only time she did something useful was off screen or with other characters talking over it while she was doing stuff in the background.
Michiru was 10 times more fun than her.
