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 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.
I thought /a/ hated it and just liked to shitpost about it
>edgy fuckboys that fapped to Koito's edgy personality
>edgy personality after she she goes dere
Don't cut yourself
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.
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.
>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.
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.
I'm watching it right now. So far it's not bad.
I only watched it for Mai's body.
Fuck, why'd this episode hit me so hard?
>Rururaruri Rurararirararururirirari Rirararururararururararirari
Where is the edit of Koitus holding the mug from Pleiades over that one?
I don't go to threads for this show but I know it has to exist.
>/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.
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.
>objectively best girl
>Better than Amagi.
Pfft Kayne alone shits on everything in phantom world
Knk was shit but atleast it wasn't episodic mindless shit
This was worse but S1 was still better than this shit
Must be delusional
>I just finished this entire show yesterday and I have no idea why /a/ was so crazy about it.
/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
>So I have to ask the people who enjoyed it, what did you actually like?
It didn't horribly offend my sensibilities, that's what I liked about it. Yeah, it was shit but it killed time.
After hearing all the praise KyoAnus gets I looked up their past works, and it seems like Amaburi is the only actually good thing they've ever done.
>Better than Amagi.
It's not even half as entertaining as those two.
>Create filler character
>Make her best girl
>Make her the girl that wins the MCbowl
This sinn djinn, the handlebar loli and all the phantom girls are great. The foxgirl reminds me of Satone the most, and that they showed how Enigmummy kinda enjoyed being all motherly was nice to know since it also explained why she kept up the facade all the way until the last moment
>Create original character and best girl
>make her relevant while turning the source material ones into filler
>get rid of the Mirai Nikki tier plot and replace it by mindless fun shenanigans
Reinafags went "do what you must" then Kyoani said nope.
I'm sure she's used to being lonely and abandoned.
It was just something fun to watch, I didn't really go into it expecting some super developed story or anything that would solely make me watch it for the plot.
It was okay nothing amazing, You wouldn't miss anything if you didn't watch it.
Least you got the best girl right.
It's not something that could be pulled off easily. She is precious.
What did you find annoying about Mai OP? She was a great girl specially in the last few episodes.
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.
Koito a best
>Reina (objectively best girl)
Good to know I can ignore your opinion without regrets.
Koito has the best design of the season again.
/a/ goes crazy for any fanservice, they will talk about it for ages, and more if it's something like kyoani with good animation and good girls designs
show was shit, easily worst kyoani, and they haven't done a good one since the cute girl that fights with ther blood
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.
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.
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.
>you will never twirl best girl's hair
probably because people can watch anime after they aired
A nice long
hug from Harumight melt her heart.
Did we ever get a scan of that picture of Mai hugging Koito?
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.
