Can anyone explain this completely true phenomenon?

There was a whole show where every episode had a narrator and it was shit. Some show trying to act like a historical documentary but never going anywhere. Wish I could remember its name.

but hxh has a narrator speaking the whole time and it's shit

So you're saying she had the best route?

No one had a best route. They were all stuck in a shit show.

Katanagatari?

The narrator carried her route because she was nothing special. But I feel like she's the one that needs to "win" because she's the one that needs the MC the most and I felt bad for her when she couldn't participate in the santa contest.

No, it was an older show. Something before 2000.

>>152005285
He said the anime was shit so it can't be Katanagatari

>any examples of shows with unreliable narrators?
How about narrators who just want to watch the world burn?
>>
>>152003188
I'd say re-cap episodes are the exception. They always have a narrator but I usually skip them.

If a show/epsidoe has Kenji Nakamura, it will be good.

It's because more narrative context, analysis and details can be added without breaking immersion.

>>152003188
Indeed true the first two seasons of hayate were great and they all had a narrator. The ones after were shit. Also the only good ova of hayate was the one were the narrator came back.

Precisely.

DAGA!

SHIKASHI!!!

If the setting is a a school, it will almost certainly be bad.
If the characters are visually extravagant, it will almost certainly be bad.
If it's a juvenile genre like shounen, it will almost certainly be bad.
If it has a flavor of the year theme like isekai, it will almost certainly be bad.

There are some very good exceptions to these rules.

What if the show have a constant narrator like Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Especially since it seems to be done in a way somewhat like a historical documentary.

Suck my ass dude.

Can you call Ookami-san good?

>>152011355

But LoGH only had a narrator in certain episodes that I remember. They were some of the best episodes though. The crappy show I was thinking of was a weird ancient China setting.

Kingdom, maybe?

Top tier girls stuck in the shittiest show ever, that arc Nakata Jouji narrated was the only part worth watching of this shitfest.
