I would have loved a one episode OVA about the 2nd ED. That would have been fun. Even if it was just Chitanda's imagination going wild. The boys are beasts dressed like that.
When will KyoAni be able to dump money and effort into a show like this again? Hibike was getting there but it was not as technically impressive as this or Nichijou. Whatever people are shitposting about now looks to be another Amagi.
>Haruhi Season 1
BRETTY GUD TIER
>Kyoukai no Kanata
>Amagi Brilliant Park
prove me wrong fellas
S1 is unremarkable. S2 is fantastic.
Kyon would beat up Oreki in a fight
well yeah, I believe that art has to be shocking and not even comfortable sometimes, but it doesn't work because majority of watchers are immature virgins. and waiting the whole week for pretty much the same (when the show aired) was definitely painful, while watching the show after airing would be way better (watching all the eps in one time)
hell I'd say it works best when the viewers are immature virgins, as that's the target audience who's most easily upset by it.
like, I'm not about to say I enjoyed watching it because by all standards it's no fun watching the same thing eight times in a row, but I don't think it was supposed to be fun
"conceptually" it's quite powerful stuff
But would Koizumi and Fukube get along or would they not be able to stand one another?
They're too alike. Fukube would go better with the calm type to let him shine, so I see him paired with Nagato
also he's wearing a planet and she's an alien, get it, get it?
I think if you legitimately "suffer" through the first then you probably won't enjoy the rest. Hell, an enjoyment of the first actually goes a long way in building an appreciation for what the second does. That said, don't give up on it. Revisit it later on to see if you like it, because it is genuinely one of the best animated tv shows ever made.
Some of the early s2 episodes I found unbearable like some of the s1 ones. Once the main thread started I think somewhere after episode 8 or so, it was a fucking amazing ride to the end including the movie.
