I really like SoL and lately got into watching Aria anime. But for some reason I don't really like it, which feels funny because /a/ hypes it as the definite SoL anime. Technical aspects are bad and instead of scenery porn it really looks like early 2000's functionalist anime. The animal helpers and most of the side-characters (especially male) are really obnoxious. Strange fever dreams and time-travel subplots feel really out of place, and even if they shed light to the backstory, there's no reason why the exposition couldn't be something else than literal time-travel. The background music is played by probably one foreign man with a cheap guitar.

Why do you like Aria so much even if world is full of better SoL experiences?

That's some real obvious bait OP.

On the off chance your serious though, try the manga instead.

Of course it's bait. The whole thing is retarded

That's not even an opinion though, it's just factually wrong and an incredibly stupid thing to say.

>>139757236
If you want to share you dumb opinion with the world, why don't you create a blog?
This is a discussion imageboard.

That's what I thought too, but it seems only circlejerking is allowed.

Aria isn't as focused on characters as most SoL (which is what appeals to me the most in a SoL). That's why its generally baby's first SoL and people who don't generally like SoL like Aria. Its mostly scenery porn, the setting, and OST that get people hooked.
Also the pacing is complete ass. The manga's is much better.

That being said, some episodes were really good, but most of the episodes were extremely dull.

How can you not feel right with the world when this plays?

Origination has better character focused episodes than any other SoL, but those episodes only mean anything if you actually watch and enjoy the first 2 seasons.

>>139758250
Maybe but forcing yourself through 36ish episodes of an anime you find boring just to get to the good stuff can really kill your enjoyment of a series.

What exactly are you trying to discuss then?
How everyone is wrong and only you have a superior taste to see the flaws and mistakes on the series?
We have this thread every month.
>>
>>139758392
I was kind of looking for a discussion on what makes Aria good/bad and people telling their own experiences with the series, but yeah, shitposting competition is fine too I guess as you're clearly leaning on that direction.
>>
>>139758385
But if you enjoy the 36 previous episodes of episodic stories with slow, but gradual character development and the exploration of the unique world of Aria, then when substantial development of the story and characters finally happen, the payoff is immense and truly memorable. Watching the anime before reading the manga helps too, at least in my case as the manga was still amazing even after watching the anime.
>>
>>139758802
The world and world-building is truly unique to Aria and I can see why people get attached to the series because of that, but I'm saying that if you going into Aria for the characters, you are going to have a bad time. Plenty of other SoL anime have much better characters and gradual development. The characters are pretty much secondary in the world of Aria and the character development is very sporadic until Origination.

>watching for the plot

I've only seen the Animation, and I don't remember much of what was going on, but it made me so tranquil and happy

haha yeah because this makes sense, i'm sure the nonexistant visuals, voice acting, and music will make it several times more enjoyable!

/s of course you dumbfuck, i might as well clarify it now since i know you people are too autistic to comprehend sarcasm.
