It was fun. Needed an episode or two more though.
>everyone has shit taste except me
>nobody can refute this because I won't post myself
>I can't because I'm too busy sucking dicks
best animes ever made:
bakemonogatari (its very deep so if youre a begginer into anime you should skip it for later)
gundam iron blood orphans (finally a gundam mech show that isnt made for kids)
kiznaiver (very good anime from this season gave me the feels ;_;)
mirai nikki (its super crazy sorta like elfen lied and stuff )
elfen lied (my first anime its really dark tho so dont watch it if youre under 18)
Not screwing a source material is an accomplishment on its own, just look at the manga adaptation and what happenend because that mangaka thought he could do better.
Pick one OP and while you're at it, try to cure your pure shit taste.
Why am I not surprised?
Pretty much the entirety of episodes 5, 6, and 7 are headache inducing in how poorly they represent the sequence of events. It's so incredibly unclear what's going on at any point in time. There is no sense of geography at all. The queerrat forces seem to suddenly grow and shrink. Even after reading summaries that were supposed to explain what happened, the events on screen only sort of matched up. It's either really amateur, or the director had their head up their ass. Plus they seemed to have zero budget.
I think those are the worst offenders, but there's only a small handful of scenes in the show that are actually "good" (I liked the first appearance of the exploding squid things). The majority of it ranges from uninspired to confusing.
It's only good because they didn't fucking with the source material very much, but the whole time I found myself wishing I had just read the book.
A masterpiece deserves master sales right?

>entirety of episodes 5, 6, and 7
That's when they go into the caves with squealer, right?
>It's so incredibly unclear what's going on at any point in time
I'm pretty sure that was intentional, since we, as an audience, are supposed to experience SSY's world through Saki. It's only natural for it to be confusing when it is confusing to the protagonist.
>The majority of it ranges from uninspired to confusing
Highly debatable. All of Tokyo's sequence are greatly directed, so are Shun-centric scenes (after the first time skip).
before 3dpd shit entered his realm, all of his monologues are masterpieces.
> It's only natural for it to be confusing when it is confusing to the protagonist.
There's a difference between confusing and inconsistent. I didn't feel confused for the same reasons Saki was. I was confused because I had no idea where they came from, which direction they were moving in, and what forces they had with them. It all seemed to change every time we got a new camera angle. And this problem of geography seemed to persist throughout the show. It worked during the Shun arc, but when everything is supposed to be normal, I shouldn't be confused as to how big or small an area is. Or which direction they're moving in. It has a terrible sense of place.
> All of Tokyo's sequence are greatly directed, so are Shun-centric scenes (after the first time skip).
Some of them are, but we brush over the shitty scenes in our heads because the good ones were so enjoyable. SSY is good when it counts, but everything in between is uninspired at best. For example, the submarine scenes.
It's inconsistent. There's great highs and mind numbing lows. I can't call that a masterpiece.
>people unironically regard this mess of off-screen storytelling and character development, jarring time skips and exposition dumps as a masterpiece
Next you gonna say Berserk and Jojo are yaoi
I see a lacking of Boku no Pico here.
The movie did it better.
Agreed, and yet it's not even Ikuhara's best masterpiece.
One episode of homosexuality. That's the similarity.
It's the same as the misunderstanding people have about SSY that it is only about homosexuality.
People post the yaoi argument in every SSY thread for dropping or not watching it. If you think the other 20 episodes are garbage then that's just your opinion. Make sure you post that in the next SSY thread
Enough with the meme anime.
A real masterpiece coming through.
I have never seen anyone refer to this particular JoJo episode as gay. If people call the series gay, it's usually for the character designs and its own brand of showing off manliness.
Meanwhile homosexuality in SSY is a plot element first hinted at in episode 4, then shown directly after the first timeskip before being quitely dropped shortly thereafter.
>Make sure you post that in the next SSY thread
Thing is, the series rarely gets its own threads. Which isn't that surprising, as the series is over, there's nothing to discuss really and the only point in making a thread is to share Maria lewds or post that Squealer did nothing wrong.
The places where it does get brought up all the time are these stealth recommendation threads (also 3x3s), villain threads and of course worst anime threads.
Also, SSY fags tend to ignore all legitimate criticism of their darling show anyway and like to resort to their strawmen.
>I have never seen anyone refer to this particular JoJo episode as gay
And I never said it was. I was saying that it saying SSY is Yaoi from a single episode. is the same as saying Jojo being Yaoi from a single episode. See what my original post >>143378172 is replying to.
If it is a legitimate criticism then it will be listened to, but the post explicitly say: "SHITsekai YAOI"
So I don't understand why you think anyone is making a strawman argument.
I don't think we'll get such profund statement on the human nature from anime again.
Brotherhoodfags fuck off.
Nihilism is a fine core theme, when it's allowed to exist as an atmosphere encompassing the events of a story, instead of being spoonfed to an audience. Great example is Crime and Punishment.
Fuck no, this shits all over the magnificent book in the worst way. Cut the Albert yaoi-shit and have a redemption arc at the end.
Yes Japan, I'm still mad.
What's going on with the SSY shitposting lately?
>inb4 hurr durr it's always been like that
Nope, I never miss a thread and the shitposting began on this year for some reason.
Also why does 4chan ask me if I'm a robot every twelve hours.
The show was rated pretty poorly when it aired. Only got hyped after it ended. So there has definitely been an influx of SSY newfags at some time.
However, must have started much earlier than the other anon was thinking.
Pretencious. God I love pretencious anime. Zettai unmei~
Master of bait, do you have enough fishes?
I haven't watched this one.
I actually know someone who thinks that Mirai Nikki and Elfen Lied are both great. They got insulted when I said they had bad taste and said that they had been watching anime for a really long time.
B-but muh deep story on
a gigantic scale.
Just watched this, definitely the most FUN I've had since Girls und Panzer. How the fuck did I miss it when it was airing?
GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT
I loved it,I want to se the movie trilogy, I heard they handle the newtype stuff better in the 3rd one
this was pretty fun too,not sure if I'd call it a masterpiece though
was a great show as well,but I wish half the OST hadn't been unreleased
Where is the superior Yuasa show?
