Phantom World didn't feel very interesting to me. The directing was somehow both boring and too chaotic (which is weird considering the director), and the characters didn't feel interesting or likeable at all. At least it looked nice, being KyoAni and all. So is it just me, or does it feel underwhelming to you guys too?

KyoAni's new thing was pretty fun, like a more lighthearted KnK. I'll watch to enjoy KyoAni brand fanservice.

That PA Works thing about the gay love triangle thing was really shit though, 90% of the episode was some lame riddle they tried to solve and then the romance was shoehorned in out of nowhere right at the end. The show looks pretty ugly too.

I heard some good things about Boku Dake ga Inai Machi before it aired, though it didn't convince me back then. But they were right; ep1 was really, really good. The character interactions were great, and though the plot didn't look very interesting on paper, it was executed in a really exciting manner.

Don't re-read the description on the chart. It contains a spoiler for episode 1 (which I completely forgot about, and it probably made the episode more interesting).

That gay love triangle show's second episode was so horrendously written that it deserves an award. Faggot just busts into someone's house and smugly tells her to stop crying over her dead brother then proceeds to break her mentally in the most condescending way possible, just so he can get her to join the club and further his plans to gayfuck his retarded sensei.

I'm of the opposite opinion. Besides Durarara and Gate, I'm thoroughly enjoying Koukaku no Pandora, Boku Dake ga Inai Machi and Hai to Gensou to Grimgar. I also liked the first two episodes of Dimension W, but I'll probably drop it due to already watching too many shows.

I also couldn't stand how soulless the characters looked. I think combining 3D animation with anime style (by which I mean the exact anime look, not the general anime/manga/game/etc design style) just doesn't work. I'm normally not bothered by 3D animation, but when I see the anime style my brain goes into anime mode and expects them to be much more expressive in every way.

The only series where I wasn't bothered by 3D was Etotama (at least the 1.5 episodes I watched of it), probably due to how they switched between full 2D and full 3D (as in, character models not even trying to resemble the 2D counterparts), instead of awkwardly trying to fit the 3D animation into a style designed for 2D.

It's hard to say. Koukaku no Pandora has a few small Excel Saga references and some similar sci-fi elements like artificial intelligence/androids/cyborgs, but overall it's pretty different, and it's even more different from the Excel Saga anime.

The Excel Saga anime was basically just a silly experimental comedy that stayed away from the manga's main plot. It tried to parody a different genre in every episode, the characters' personalities were changed, the 4th wall was shattered, and the director even added an anime version of himself and gave himself dbz-like super powers.

If that sounds like something you'd like, then I guess give an episode a try, but I would personally recommend reading at least 4 or 5 volumes of the manga first.

Maybe it's because I expected it to be terrible, but the Komugi-chan reboot is surprisingly decent. Minus the CG idol dance scenes, which are just as bad as you'd expect.

They did a good job of keeping the spirit of the show with new characters and a different setting, and even though it's different people in charge of the animation they kept a similar style. I'm not quite sure how this even relates to the original show. Is the new Komugi the old Komugi's daughter? The mother is voiced by Momoi Haruko after all, but her name isn't Komugi...

Something about the new Komugi feels really down to earth. Especially her relationship with her family, it's so normal. You almost never see anime protagonists sitting around with their family having a normal dinner. I like what they did with episode 4, where Komugi is in the middle of this Ninja Warrior style challenge and is actually winning, but then of course a monster appears and the magical rabbit dude tells her she needs to go fight it. But she doesn't, because "I never win anything, I'm in the lead in this competition, I'm not going to fight your stupid monster until after it's over". It's nice seeing a character act in her own self-interest when it's something really important to her, while still being a nice person who helps others most of the time.

Anyways, it's no more than a silly slice-of-life/parody show, but I've enjoyed watching it so far.

Tyuka is never going to recover from this. (Of course she will, but only due to plot magic magically making the problem go away once the dragon is dead.) GATE's take on psychology with Tyuka's PTSD has been horrible the entire time, but this time it really was hilariously bad.

To recap: After having Itami affirm that he is her father, she is put to sleep to wake up in a distant land, where she is immediately placed on a battlefield with weaponry she is not familiar with (I'm not sure she's even seen a gun in action throughout the series), is forced to face the monster that killed everybody she knew, and has a heavy weapon she does not understand pushed in her hands, all while a guy she trusts deeply and thinks to be her father shouts in her ear that he is not her father and that her father is dead.

I'm not one to condone 'trigger warnings' and such bullshit, but I really don't think this is helping her situation.

this show is heavy hitting to say the least; I'll be damned if I don't have PTSD by the end of it.

Thank you, Arthur, for this incredible moment of insight.

(why the hell am I still watching Divine Gate what is wrong with me)
>> No.51455  
I disagree; most cliffhangers in Boku Dake ga Inai Machi feel really cheap. A proper cliffhanger is the logical result of already running story elements which are not resolved by the end of the episode, but Boku Dake ga Inai Machi frequently introduces elements right at the end of the episode specifically to make a cliffhanger. And let's not forget the extremely cheap cliffhanger at the end of episode 3, where a normal conversation is made to feel ominous by overly dramatic music and a dramatic zoom-in.

A proper cliffhanger makes you want to watch how the story continues. But in Boku Dake ga Inai Machi I always know the cliffhanger has little to do with what the next episode is really about; the cliffhanger is quickly resolved (if that's even necessary) and the story continues. And as it's not the culmination of earlier elements, I have little reason to care once I realize of how little consequence they are.
