This is a show about a bunch of young woman going to the gym to lose a bit of weight. It's not a high-intensity sports show about obsessively commiting yourself to a single pursuit. Either way, there's no good reason to complain about minute details like how they animate weight lifting not being accurate to real life, and on top of that complaining about anime as a whole, creators making doujin instead of "talking to real woman"(???) and "basement dwellers".

I agree, those kind of complaints are silly. This show is a comedy, which they would know if they watched beyond the first episode.

What is it about Madoka that inspires such ardent fervor among its fanbase? While it's a fun watch and the impact on the viewer is of course subjective, even among other popular/hyped series Madoka seems to have a disproportionately vocal cross-section of fans, even moreso than other SHAFT works (e.g. Monogatari).

While the "twist" on the Mahou Shoujo genre might have been interesting (I am not a particular fan of the genre so I cannot speak as to wheter it was actually novel), that alone doesn't really seem to be substantive enough to explain it. Was it just the combination of the artwork and mildly "dark" plot combined with the sprinkling of symbolism to provide a thin layer of depth that nonetheless remains accessible?

There's some who claim that it grapples with essential truths like "what are good intentions," "what's the nature of evil," (all conveniently wrapped up in a Rorsarch-esque fog of moral ambiguity that makes it prime material for over the top analysis), but such grand and overarching themes seem like they could found in almost any piece of work. Certainly not enough to make claims as bold as "greatest story ever told" (which although might have been initially in jest, probably does reflect to some degree the reverence some have for this particular work). And not to mention the downright veneration many seem to share for Homura.

I think it's simply because it is a more mature Mahou Shoujo targetted at an older audience, an average adult anime fan is more likely to like Madoka than Precure.

The idea here seems to be that Madoka is appreciated because of its intellectual insight, and that this is largely not justified. Neither claim is correct, but let's start with the first one. Madoka has the production and direction values, not to mention great moe characters. Add to that the emotional nature of its storytelling, and Madoka already deserves to be remembered. But going deep into what makes the characters so good is a lot of work, and many that only feel the moe but can't really think about it will take the easy way out to justify their love, which is saying the anime is "deep". It's a simple claim, and in casual conversation it's quite hard to falsify. But I want to stress this: if these people loved Madoka for intellectual reasons, as OP seems to believe, they'd talk about Camus or Nietzsche instead of Madoka.

Second, when it comes to whether or not Madoka's intellectual side is "substantive enough", OP is right to disqualify himself right off the bat. Tl;dr is that Madoka has some good commentary to add to the first story arc of Sailor Moon, but the conclusion of its thought isn't much to celebrate. It's the problem that is more interesting, and even then, it's core dates from the early nineties.

1) Mahou Shoujo was about self-sacrifice even before Sailor Moon, but SM managed to choose the exact right points to focus on. Those are: what constitutes a "pure heart", the isolation the heroines experience, and the absolute and absolutely silent manner of their sacrifice. It's a classic tragic story, except for the absence of corruption - the girls simply die. And here we see the first thing Madoka has to add: truly classical tragedies show how the protagonist is heroic but succumbs to evil and self-destructs.
2) The second move Madoka makes is a little bolder: it forgets how SM was retconned to have a happy ending, and asks what the implications would have been if the story of SM would have ended there. Should we take it to mean that in times of great danger, some misfits give their lives for people who ostracized them in the first place, and that's it? Is there no way to escape this fate? Ultimately, Madoka deems existence itself tragic - the only way out is to go outside "existence". Going even further, you could say t

>If I were that guy I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself.
The latest episode did in fact touch on this. The way MC just dismisses the issue that Senko is probably projecting her feelings/guilt over his ancestor onto him quite unsatisfying emotionally.

But on the other hand the reason he gave is ultimately practical and I don't fault him for just being content with Senko's company. Even though it may only be a facade, having Senko around is probably more comforting for him than not having anyone at all, much in the same way watching the show provides the viewer with comforting escapism.

I noticed that, and it seems they doubled down on it for ep8. I guess they must have figured many viewers were thinking the same thing. So it's nice to see them address it. Like they say it doesn't really help things to worry about good times coming to an end and you shouldn't let that stop you from enjoying the moment.

I never experienced it with plastics, I never had any figures though. I get similar damage with rubber, rubberized non slip coatings, stuff like that. Shit's turning back to raw latex.

It's a little sticky but nothing you can't wipe off with a damp cloth. Here's a photo of a figure I've noticed has this problem. It's not supposed to be this glossy, and that's because of the oil leaking.

Watching it to see how it ends. But it lost its lustre when it was still new & fresh. The author needs to focus on what it does the action adventure side and less on the haphazard politics and poorly thought-out "mysteries".

Same here. From the start I thought the titan designs were stupid and I disliked the gore porn aspect, but that underdog struggle for survival aspect made the first season interesting. Things really did get lame though when it tried to go political or mystery. I mean I was curious about what the titans are, where they come from, why they're attacking and so on, but then no one freaking asks these questions. It just makes things frustrating. I just want to see how this shit show ends.

After that holocaust shit with the dogs I felt like dropping this and would have done so if it wasn't for sunk cost fallacy. At this point I don't particular enjoy the show but instead follow along because I've made it this far and feel that I may as well see it through to the end.

Looks like this is finally the season that Japan is going to allow real 2D penis in vagina sex on live television.
Araburu Kisetsu no Otomedomo yo - The girls in a high school literature club do a little icebreaker to get to know each other: answering the question, "What's one thing you want to do before you die?" One of the girls blurts out, "Sex." Little do they know, the whirlwind unleashed by that word pushes each of these girls, with different backgrounds and personalities, onto their own clumsy, funny, painful, and emotional paths toward adulthood.
romance


also Vinland Saga and some other shit

I didn't mean it like that, I was just enjoying an opportunity to highlight the total absurdity of censoring cartoons, which is something I find humor in because its like canceling the magician's act because it looked like the lady got cut in half. Mass hysteria and inability to separate imagination from reality are funny.

Well I certainly won't be watching that garbage.

So far the only two animes that take my interest are Doctor Stone and Vinland Saga. I read the Manga of Doctor Stone because I though it was something that was unlikely to get animated.
