I just finished this entire show yesterday and I have no idea

I just finished this entire show yesterday and I have no idea why /a/ was so crazy about it.
This show was literally one of the worst KyoAni shows I've seen.
The plot was terrible.
Action was shit.
Kurumi looked retarded.
Mai was a lot more annoying than I thought she would be.
Reina (objectively best girl) had almost no good moments in the entire show.

So I have to ask the people who enjoyed it, what did you actually like?
It was honestly just such a generic and shallow show that I was considering dropping it but I continued just for Ruru and Reina.
>>
I didn't see /a/ being crazy about it.

>>139953798
>I have no idea why /a/ was so crazy about it.
Shut the fuck up, newfag. Only people that went crazy about this shit show was edgy fuckboys that fapped to Koito's edgy personality.
>>
It was alright. Certainly better than Hyouka, Tomako Market, and Kyoukai no Kanata,

When did this happen
>>
>>139953798
First episode was good, the rest were shit.
>>
>>139954407
As if Koitofags knew she'd change a little when the show started. It's clear that Koitofags likes her because they're edgy fuckboys that likes edgy girls like Koito was in the beginning.
>>
>>139953798
I'm pretty sure I see more threads talking shit about it than threads praising it.
>>
Koito was also a shit character.
The entirety of her "character development" was her saying thanks to the MC after he helped her, and then she literally never even talked with him again after that.
>>
>>139953798
Yes, nobody got crazy for it, it had a strong start because it was the first anime of the year to air, from that point on every thread have been shitpost and memes.

No one was crazy about it. Even Kyoani fags don't like it cause it's too similar to typical light novels for them.

Yeah its pretty shit, though I did finish the series since watching this weekly can be entertaining.
>>
>>139953798
>I have no idea why /a/ was so crazy about it.

Dude... I haven't watched a single episode of this show, but I'd occasionally peruse the threads for fairy jack material. 95% of every thread was /a/ talking shit about how bad this show was.
>>
>>139954942
She was never edgy.
>>
>>139957299
Oh, because I just remember the massive I flux of threads that popped up after that limbo episode.

I didn't actually keep up with the threads but I kinda just assumed people liked it.
Also, Mai was the worst adaptation of the brown hair girl yet. Sento is still the best.
>>
>>139957485
We are working on the new Shinka. This one is more similar to Sento, but she is an ex soldier and a robot instead of a kappa.

>>139957485
Yeah, this show pretty much survived on the fumes of it's fappable girls.

>>139953798
If you think this is generic, you don't know what generic means. And if you think the plot was shit, you're a shit watcher for thinking a show like this is about the plot.

>/a/ was crazy about it

If by "crazy" you mean "discussed it and cared about it far less than any KyoAni show I have ever seen" then yeah. It got relegated in importance/viewers as if it was a typical forgettable JCstaff or A1 show.

At least the girls were hot and it was a bit amusing/silly. That's really about all it had going for it though. Something about its tone didn't really work right; it was pretty light and goofy yet at times yet still somehow still too serious. It didn't really have comedic timing and kind of devolved into phantom of the week along with backstory shit. Which is just kinda boring overall.
>>
>>139953798
Only thing this show was good for was debating which of the girls was best and memes. The animation was pretty to look at, but incoherent. Everything else about it was mediocre to awful. Not sure where you got the idea /a/ in general had anything but disdain for the show, but it was pretty universally deemed shit.

I don't like most KyoAni stuff, but I was surprised that I even enjoyed this as I had gone in feeling it was going to be like every other LN adaptation. The episodic format and decentralized plot made it unlike most other adaptations and thus I actually enjoyed it more than I would otherwise. The people who dislike it most specifically site these things as reason why they didn't like it.
>>
>I have no idea why /a/ was so crazy about it
/a/ hated it aside from some kyoanus lickers

>>139958333
KyoAni were actually the ones who organized the production committee for Amaburi. Depending on how much of a return TBS got, the ball is probably in KyoAni's court.

Hyouka and Tamako Market were decent though...

/a/ didn't go crazy about it at all. It wasn't even talked about a lot relative to other airing shows, which is when you know a show is really shit; nobody even bothers to talk about it, not even the contrarians.
>This show was literally one of the worst KyoAni shows I've seen.
Most everyone agrees. And if they disagree, it's because due to personal taste one other Kyoani show is worse than it. Nobody has it anywhere near being one of their favourites of Kyoanus, that's for sure.
>>
I never had a good relationship with mother and as such I constantly desire for women to treat me in motherly nature, as if I were a child.
Perhaps that's why this show was so wonderful to me, especially the last few episodes.

Can't speak for other anons though, and /a/ was never crazy about it

I found it a good show overall, at least from episode 4, onward. As the sum of its parts, it's a 6.8 on the non IGN scale, especially if we weigh the last half heavier than the first.

And can we give special mention to how solid the premise was? The idea of massive shared hallucinations was cooler than anything else that season, even if they didn't expand on it much at all.

>>
>>139977459
It's a nice "show, don't tell" setting. They used Koito and Reina's backstory to show the troubles of first generation power users, they use Ruru and the foxgirl to show where phantoms can come from, they made Kurumi to show where these powers come from and what's their limits, etc. Helps to cut down on those monologues and spoken expositions for sure.
The episodes are also very loosely linked together so that one maybe can just cut through to the finale, but watching it all makes the last three episodes more sensible.
>>
>>139979077
That's fine but it felt pointless and unfinished.
>>
>>139978812
>the cute girl that fights with ther blood
You could've done better if this is all you remember and not even the title itself
>>
>>139979318
It won't be, there's gonna be a continuation for sure. KnK felt even more unfinished than PW but the movie and the OVA did close up some stuff though there's still lots of unexplained things like the ring and the mother. PW's sequel, no matter what form it is won't have much holes to cover, the basics are done nicely.

>>
>>139979637
Seems like it can't be helped then, because recently almost everything they do was made in such a way that a sequel was needed. Tamako needs a movie to round up the whole romance plot, KnK needed another movie to tie up everything, Free S2 was a big improvement over the mediocre 1st season, and I doubt that Euphonium movie would be an exact recap either.

A nice long hug from Haru might melt her heart.

IT was the first big show of the winter season. Also Kyoani will always create a buzz, off of that came the meme which was this show.

Garbage. They try baiting you in at the beginning of every episode with 'smart talk' and then the entire episode is fucking garbage.
Went to move it from my 'not watched' to 'watched' folder and it just vanished. Good riddance, it didn't even deserve to be another number.

KyoAni should just cut to the chase and adapt Keit-ai.
