Like almost all kyoani and tamako market is still shit.
It's just that good.
Nowhere near as well written characters, growth, or natural interaction. I love yuyushiki but you're just completely wrong.
What did either of those do better than K-On? How about you actually learn to watch anime beyond a passive consumptive state and formulate concrete opinions on their elements beyond "this sux I din' like it" instead of asking people to forcefeed you basic deductive reasoning?
It's not "nothing". It's magic. Sometimes there is this one anime and one specific person in the vast ocean of anime fans decides that this anime is the best thing God could have ever devised. And that happens a lot. But when it's a huge portion of anime fans, that's something rather unusual to happen and it can only mean there is something special about that anime. Because this "something special" is not something that can be described with logic or reason, we say it's magical. It could be said to be artistic, even. When you stare at a fine work of art for half an hour and some bystander asks "what do you like so much about this?" you might answer "I don't know, it's just... beautiful". It's that kind of response K-On evokes in its viewers. So basically the fact that it's not just one person saying K-On is awesome despite there not being any logical reasoning for making such claims is good evidence that this magic I speak of is indeed something.
By actually having human characteristics, drives and passions that motivate them and bring them together through natural interaction rather than being random quirks that ARE the character? By not being static cutouts and developing personalities in a slow, natural enough way to actually be both believable and significant enough to drive a character driven story? By having interesting personal qualities buried under the surface level "archetypes" (which is a shitty criticism as actual real people can just as easily be categorised into ones. You're on a board that does this every day). Why do I have to spell out such basic shit to you if you? Why Am I even explaining it to you if you are so dense you can't discern these qualities from gag manga staple characters? All I'm gonna get is a "nuhuh it sux ur opinion is shit" so the fuck's the point anyway.
While objectivity not as great, i did enjoy GJ-Bu more than K-ON!, though i recognize I'm probably in a huge minority of people who think this. K-ON! Is still one of my all-time favorite shows though.
I just finished binging the entire show plus movie and it's arguably unironically my favorite animu. Rewatched the last school festival concert episode and the last episode where they sing for Azusan, bawled my eyes out like a little bitch.
Everybody in the show felt very human and their interactions just work too well with multitudes of fun and dynamic personalities to choose from, how do I fill the void in my heart now?
I actually thought it had a perfect amount, sometimes you just dont want to sit through 2-3 minute songs every episode like love live
k-on had good songs but I mostly watched for the CGDCT
Non Non Biyori didn't have heart or well-constructed characters. It has its characters go from one comedic scenario to the next with some background panning shots whereas K-ON! is a constant stream of events with jokes happening along the way, especially in season two where it was at its most natural. K-ON!'s cast has a very believable friendship and chemistry but in NNB, their chemistry feels random. Why does Hotaru love Komari? Who knows. Why is almost everyone like a normal little kid but Renge is a bizarre purple-haired memebeast? Who knows.
I regret putting it off for so long because I was to much of A MAN to watch moe shit. It was adorable and I miss them. Azusa is my daughteru
Man, I had the same reasoning for not watching it either but that was earlier in my anime watching but I probably collapsed into watching K-ON 2 months into being a weeb which then opened up the world of moe to me and how it's alright and being a man is accepting that cute girls can do cute things and it's alright to enjoy that.
