Its shit, especially last few episodes that were filler. The animation was underwhelming, low budget static manga panels on screen. Better read manga. The constant recaps and the OP started to play in the middle of the episode.

They weren't "filling" anything. This show is more creative than 90% of all other anime.

Last few episodes were filler and have nothing to do with the series. Also at that time the director (Anno) stopped working on it. It shows. The constant recaps each episode and 2 whole episodes of recap shows they had big budget problems... Creative ye? They were copy pasting manga panels on screen and showing power point frames. Well, its kinda creative for the budget they were working with, but its still shit.

That's what dropped it from 9/10, to 7/10 for me.

>>150307940
That's not really what filler means, is it?

Do they have anything to do with the plot? No.
Does it matter? Not really.
Did Tsurumaki do a good job on the episodes he directed? Yes.

Is the show better for it rather than being a straightforward adaptation? Unquestionably.

I'd take budget and other problems behind the scenes any day if they result in things like paper cutouts, burning the cels onscreen, and the manga style that would later be used in FLCL.

I don't know how fangirls can say Shinji is a faggot when Soichiro is x1000 worse and he has a cute girlfriend, a homo bro that doesn't lose his head and loving adoptive parents. If only Anno allowed Sadamoto to give Shinji a hair bang as he want to. Anno refused because he said Shinji would be too good looking and he wanted Shinji to look like an average kid

Dude, the manga is generic as fuck shoujo with way too much drama and shallow characters.

What Anno did was transform this petty idea into a superb story about self definition. The whole point is about discovering oneself and finding your niche in the world, while developing friendships, love, and life skills.

The comedy is top tier while always conserving enough seriousness to evoke emotions and nostalgia. And even the later eps where they stop giving a fuck are great.

It's a pitty we'll never get anythign clcose to a 2nd season, specially because reading the manga to know the rest of the story is just not on the same level.

And then everybody gets pregnatn before age 20 and it's just sad.

>>150310753
>And then everybody gets pregnatn before age 20 and it's just sad.

Watching Karekano is like watching a great artist that is completely fucked up on drugs.

You know he's greatly talented, but on his current state he cannot do well. Still, his work at 20% of his true ability is greater than most of the shit out there.
>>
the teeth girl

It's an amazing anime despite the production issues. It's more of the mangaka's fault than Anno's fault.
>>
The main guy was kinda of an edgelord, but the background characters were pretty cool.

My favorite are the short girl that falls in love with her new step brother. The sisters of the main girl were pretty cool too. And the dude that literally helps raise his best friends daughter just so he can fuck her is one of the most sensible characters in the series.

I think Shinji would be a lot less depressive if he had a cute girlfriend, a homo bro that doesn't lose his head and loving adoptive parents. Meanwhile Soichiro would start the third impact on the first episode, his darkness would find the way to make it happen without Adam's embryo

Did the mangaka had a pedo fetish?
Also, too bad never did anything relevant after it.

I feel like the mangaka definitely had some sort of complex. She was just catering to her shoujo audience, which apparently likes older men.

>>
>>150312751
Is this your first shoujo? Pairing older men with underage girls is very common on shoujo, even if that man raise her. Even the dynamic between the heroine and the male lead has a pedo vibe with the heroine being so helpless and weak in front of the male lead who happen to look like a guy on his mids 20s

I really like Toradora because it shows quite well how friendship and companionship turns into love. And it also has a realistic understanding of teenagers and their issues.

KareKano started great, but all those literally forced teen pregnancies are not my thing.

He's not
>>
>>150312973
No, I watched it long ago, while it was still being published and I was in middle school.
It seems that since then the mainstream shoujo magazines are being more careful about not endorsing pedophilia. Just look at the reticent shoujo hits like Kimi ni Todoke an Ao Haru Raido.
It was more lax in the past, thank God it got better.

It was made during time when Japan had big economy problem so budget was trash.

I read the manga back in the day, good classic shôjo stuff, not as iconic as marmalade boy but fun on its own right, albeit very monotonous when it comes to the male MC, I know it's just a shôjo but goddamn arima is an edgy faggot, if it wasn't for his dad he would be absolutely unbearable at the end.

That said, how's the anime?, I'm more than willing to give it a go, as long as it's fun.

I'm sure they didn't burn the actual film though. It's gotta be out there somewhere unless it got damaged in that flood incident.

>>150315002
The anime is miles better than the manga. Gainax and Anno really tried to do something else rather than just a simple shoujo adaptation.

It focuses mroe on characters and the self image. The edgyness get over the top at times but it has a nice contrast with some great comedy. I highly recommend it.

I read the manga after watching the anime and, I don't know, it wasn't bad but it just wasn't the same. The anime took the same events but greatly enhancing them with a more psychological approach to it, to the point of introspective narrative like the last 2 episodes of Eva. The manga was romance shoujo while the anime was more like psychological drama in a romance shoujo setting. There are a couple of pretty shitty episodes towards the end that are unrelated to the main story and add nothing, but it was when production was shitting the bed, so it's to be expected I guess. Despite what some people might say, watch all the episodes and judge by yourself.

I didn't like the conclusion of the manga either. I felt it was pretty dumb and pointless. Instead, in the anime we get no conclusion at all. Fuck yes.
>>
>>150315172
>>150315538
