>Kyoani will never make anything good past Hyouka
I finished it yesterday, and it wasn't boring as shitposters use to write, in fact, it's pretty good and interesting.
I finished it yesterday, and it wasn't a masterpiece as shitposters use to write, in fact, it's pretty borin and lame, the characters has no weight the mysteries are uninteresting the token tsundere was annoying and the main girl cringe worthy.
I wish Kyoani would make more masterpieces. Hyouka was really good, but more recent shows by them are not. Amagi was nothing special, Hibike was good but nothing more, no masterpiece. And adaptions of their own works are always, well not bad, but so far none of them is something I'd even consider adding to a recommendation chart.
Thank you for providing a shitpost as example.
I'm bored. I'll make some webms. Name the scene/episode and I'll make them in the best quality I can. If it's over 10 seconds or has a lot of animation I'll need to make it 720p.
>Forgetting KyoAni's magnum opus
It's not quite transparent but it's very watchable so I left it in 1080p.
How come "forced drama" wasn't coined until Chu-2 when Hyouka came earlier and is the best possible justification for that phrase existing? Unlike Chu-2, it doesn't have melodrama. It's disproportionate drama conjured out of nowhere via random trivial things that inexplicably make Chitanda curious, then a lot of characters become butthurt in the process of solving the boring mysteries. Chitanda should be the face of forced drama, not Rikka.
Because Hyouka's problems were higher schooler shit and didn't lay down some bombshell a la MY DAD IS DEEEEEEEEEEEAD halfway through the series as the reason for Rikka being so fucked up and made it the crux of almost half a season in a show which was (up to that point) a light-hearted romantic comedy, and then completely ignores is after it was resolved without the faintest change in status quo the following season.
Season 2 did indeed hit a new low in writing but people started saying forced drama as soon as it abruptly shifted tone while airing. As Hyouka defeners are fond of saying, the mysteries aren't the point of Hyouka. In that case you could imagine all the character development taking place over checkers games or a coloring book club and it might make it easier to notice how out-of-proportion the drama is in relation to the context of what's actually going on in the setting. Getting depressed over dead parents is more realistic despite how much lower quality the writing is than in Hyouka.
