Without wandering too far from Hyouka, Kyon's monologues feel much more like what a teenager would say.
Hyouka's dialogue is just faux and artificial.

>Kyon's monologues feel much more like what a teenager would say.
Nah. They sound like an adult writing a teenager, like most LN, like most media really. Kyon's dialogue is cinematic and humoristic, which is by no means wrong. But it's not realistic. Wanna hear realistic teenage dialogue? Listen to a high schooler conversation and prepare to cringe wondering if you were as dumb at their age.

The Santa that showed up at my kindergarten Christmas festival, I knew he was fake. And I never saw mommy kissing Santa or anything.

The reason a hidden gem exists in the first place is because plebeians can't appreciate it.
Fans of Pleiades should just stop trying to push it, as it will never get the popular recognition it deserves. Dedicated anime fans will eventually hear about it sooner her later, the others can keep on thinking it's shit because it's not a "real Gainax show" (understand, there's no big robot in it).

I like Nichjou, Hyouka is okay, Pleiades and SnW are bad.

CCS is the best mahou shoujo so that's an unfair comparison.

Pleiades is like a 6.5/10 at worst so listing a bunch of really good shows to make a point that it's 0/10 trash isn't a good way to do so. Again, you're just making it obvious you haven't watched a lot of anime, instead only watching the good ones because you're still in the entry level phase.

>>153022043
I've been watching mahou shoujo since I was too young to read, since in my country it's practically the most beloved genre.
Have you seen Ransie? Tokyo Mew Mew? Mermaid Melody? My Melody? Tutu? Hime chan? Magica Emi?
And I've listed shows of all kinds of quality.
>>
>>153021575
The best aspect of Pleiades is its great direction and writing. And it's not wrong to call it "subtle", so no wonder everyone can't appreciate it.

>>153021838
I can understand finding Pleiades boring. And the same goes for Hyouka, but in my opinion "boring" isn't this horrendous flaw that makes an anime automatically deserving of being called "shit". Both of those can be considered a bit boring but they have enough qualities to make up for it. And I would even say that being slightly boring is part of their charm, in particular in the case of Hyouka. After all the premise of Hyouka is "ordinary high-schoolers dealing with dull/mundane mysteries", it can't be super fast-paced with screaming seiyuu and flashy animation at every corner, that wouldn't make any sense.

>>153022043
>>153022183
That's the most retarded argument. Having watched a lot of shows isn't any proof of good taste or critical mind. People who watched X-thousand anime but still have shit taste are everywhere.
>>
>>153022183
On the topic of Tutu, I didn't like it much at all actually, contrary to all the people here saying it's even as good as or better than CCS.

But whatever, it's just going to become a matter of subjective opinions at this rate. I thought you were saying Pleiades was trash compared to all anime but if you just think it's the worst mahou shoujo then I won't say anything.

>>153022334
>great direction
It's rather flat and uninteresting.
The horrendous CGI that forces the camera to stay away as much as possible during flight scenes doesn't help either.

I've seen better character drama in Doremi.

The direction and writing great, though. There weren't any interesting character dynamics or chemistry, or word play, and the directing had absolutely nothing on Annoys old work. It was just a really plain show.
>>
>>153019169
Yeah I love Kyoani too (I didn't know about /a/'s opinion on it at the time, nor cared).

Though the "cinematography" thread hyped me up afterwards but well.

Maybe, I won't try to argue against that. I'm not saying that it's a masterpiece, it has its flaws.
>word play
What do you mean by that?
>and the directing had absolutely nothing on Annoys old work
I don't think that's a meaningful comparison. Anno would have never directed an anime like Pleiades to begin with. And while he can come up with genius ideas, he's also all over the place and doesn't seem to be able to make something as humble and well-rounded as Pleiades.
>It was just a really plain show.
Well, it is kinda plain in the sense that it simple and rather unambitious. But I prefer a well done plain show over an overblown wannabe-masterpiece.

Because you went from saying it had great direction and writing, to agreeing that it was really plain. Did you hit your head or something? Just say you thought the girls were cute and like space, and people might take you seriously.

If that's all you got from my post then you have serious reading comprehension problem.
Do you know we can argue without taking polar opposite stances on purpose?
I won't say Houkago no Pleiades has great character drama because it doesn't, I won't say that it's never boring in the slightest, or that the 3D looks fabulous. But it's good despite all of this.

>>153023873
But that's not a contradiction at all. Madoka was neither plain or boring for example but it had rather mediocre direction and writing (save a few good moments). On the other hand take Junkers Come Here, it's the very mundane story of a little girl worried by the imminent divorce of her parents and her childish crush on her onii-chan, yet it's one of the most mastefully directed and written anime ever made.
Also
>agreeing that it was really plain
here is what i actually said
>it is kinda plain in the sense that it is simple and rather unambitious
But keep on making wrong paraphrase it's really convincing.

Anyway I'm off to bed so I'll probably not respond to new posts.

>Madoka didn't have good directing
Well thanks for confirming you're actually retarded, I guess.
>>
>>153024338
>plain doesn't have several meanings and a negative connotation
>Madoka had good directing
So you can't appreciate directing and writing, I guessed as much given your opinion on Pleiades but now I'm sure of it.
>>
>>153024520
Plain is plain, you fucking idiot. "Simple and unambitious" is the essence of plain. Pleidas was plain, and isn't even remotely close to one of Gainax's best. You also have no understanding what makes good directing.
>>
>>153016797
Pretty much this. Its only redeeming aspects are its visuals and OST.
The mysteries and how they are dealt with are the definition of pretentiousness. It's a show about cringy teens that live in the most fashionable shithole ever. They are so bored they have to play make believe and in the process, they spout the most nonsensical purpley lines that a fedora tipping teenagers would say when trying to sound smart, utterly unaware they possess no wit whatsoever.

Hyouka was shit and you should feel bad if you find any merit in its story telling and dialogue, esp. if you're over the age of 16.

I don't understand how you can write that about Hyouka. It's one of the least pretentious anime ever.
It's 24 episode that basically hammer the viewer with how boring, uneventful and predictable life actually is.

>>153024652
>You also have no understanding what makes good directing.
I'm curious to read your opinion on what makes good directing. I'll be happy to read that tomorrow.
A bunch of good and great scenes like in Madoka isn't enough to call it well directed as you can't ignore all of the very forgettable ones, the unnecessary exposition, and the bad balance of the whole series.

That doesn't mean it's not pretentious. In fact, it shows the opposite in all of its arcs. The last episode is a great metaphor of Hyouka's essence or message, which is what you described in your post. You're shown how even grown respectable men are making a big fuss of something that is actually very silly (the bridge is closed, oh no! the festival will be an utter failure, shame on us). Everything is resolved when the pretty doll-faced girl walks by. It seems to imply beauty, in the end, is all that matters.

Sounds fairly simple right? Well, except it's not.
It takes a very obvious and basic premise (life is boring and uneventful) and uses every baroque pretense possible to distract you from that message. The MC's single affectation is being a lazy motherfucker (you are hammered with this) and his best friend thinks he's unable of analytical thought, because he's only a database xD. A teenage girl considers some doujin oneshot written by another teenager to be a literary masterpiece. The sister's face stays in the shadows and is made out to be some sort of mastermind (but mastermind of what exactly?). It has artificial and pompous dialogue throughout the series. Every single character makes a big deal out of everything, ranging from the chuuni mysteries being child's play to the retard (whose psyche is still in development) being told by a fellow teenage girl she's incapable of leading.
The film club arc has a bunch of teens doing interviews in a grandiose manner, only to evoke other mystery classics that did the interview schtick, because surely that will reinforce the notion it's a mystery series (let's just mimic Sherlock Holmes, that should work). It seems like the script writer's condition was so delicate her BEST FUCKING FRIEND couldn't give her a ring asking what she had in mind for the ending. So, everyone, let's mount a circus that will have the MC ending disappointed in how he manages said circus.

>A bunch of good and great scenes like in Madoka isn't enough to call it well directed as you can't ignore all of the very forgettable ones
it's got a pretty high ratio of memorable to forgettable parts. being a massive spectacle is why it blew up in the first place

>the unnecessary exposition
such as? it's more plot than character driven, but cutting anything out would make it incoherent

>and the bad balance of the whole series.
that's a nonsensical buzzword
>>
>>153018426
To be fair, the whole thing is based on a "literary" club right? Like as in actual japanese literature and writing, so wordplay and translation seems like it would be pretty important.

SnW is top tier, and does world building better than most series. It also strikes an interesting balance between Sol and heavier drama without ever really sacrificing quality of either.
