In this thread, we discuss and point out regular cliches and common occurrences found in anime.
a example would be the well known protag seat, but there are many out there, some more obvious than others.

Just to start things off, this is one I've been seeing a lot of.
Characters who fail to notice obvious things directly in front of them, often times needing someone to point it out for them.

It's all too common for dance routines in anime to be little more than a handful of sliding still images.

This is of course mostly due to budget and time constraints, and how much of a pain in the ass these things would be to animate, nevertheless...

If there's a school play, the appropriate genders for the roles are likely to be swapped.

Likewise, if the focus of an episode is a girl preparing for her role in a play, she is likely switch roles to play a prince at the very last minute as a surprise twist. This is even more likely to happen if she gets told she would fit the role of a princess very well.

If you liked the first season it's worth giving a try, but it's not nearly as good this time around. They don't go into detail about candy like before, the art is way different and less detailed than before, and the fan favorite Hotaru is absent for half the season. If nothing else we see coconuts grow a bit and begrudgingly learn to accept his role as the shop owner, sort of.

This is going to be a fun 90's throwback series.

Well, that was a fun ride.

The final fights, in every case, were extremely underwhelming, rushed with shitty pacing, and were loaded with QUALITY. The sophie hacking thing with the ghost girl was promptly dropped and forgotten, which is a shame. The epilogue was quite good though. Hopefully we get a movie with more post time-skip Sophie and bishop.

Movies, OVA, and TV series are being pumped out like there's no tomorrow so it might be a good idea to have single dedicated thread to keep it all together.
Also, multiple threads across different boards for the different types of media (games/LN) would be a little silly so if you want to post it here too knock yourself out.

Best way to tell if something is filtered or not is to look for dark spots. These are caused by the filter getting confused about where to place outlines. Uneven and out of place outlines are another give away. Spotty uneven shifts from one color to a slightly different shade can also be a give away. Stuff that's draw/painted will general have more even color transitions, unless it's on something like a tree where that's done on purposes to create the look of leafs.

Whelp, I think it's about time I drop this. Not sure why or how I've stuck with it this long. I was mildly curious about the mystery/story behind the anime, but not only are they probably not going to answer anything anytime soon, but in retrospect it doesn't feel that interesting anymore. It might all be a dream, or maybe the game devs accidentally created a portal to another universe, who knows. I don't much care anymore to be honest and it doesn't feel like it maters much to the story anyway.

The further on this goes the more pointless it feels to have the main character be a human in an mmo when they can just have the anime be centered around some antihero demon lord in a fantasy world from the start. I wish fantasy anime could just be fantasy anime again without any of this VR otaku's after life bullshit tacked on as if they need to justify taking part in the genre. Yes there are themes here of the main character loosing his humanity, but that could easily be replicated by having the main character be a former human in this fantasy world. The real world tie in stuff is just so unnecessary, as proven by the second season which makes very little reference to it.

Gotta say, I'm not usually much for dark themes. In anime dark/violent tends to mean immature with cheesy levels of gore. It's a bit on the tame side for the most part, but I draw the line at torture girls and this is the second time such a thing comes up. At least in the first season they got it over with without dragging it out too much. From what I hear, it seems things only get worse. Season two opens with the main character nearly committing genocide just to evaluate one of his underlings. That ain't my cup of tea yo.

Personal preference aside, the show crawls at a snail's pace. Season 1 was a whole of "...do something already!!!" followed by some "...That was it?!" with not much in between. It was like watching someone take an hour to set up a chess board, take two turns, then tell you to wait a few years to see the next couple turns. It was obvious they were trying to stretch out the content they had to work with as much as they could and it was a snore fest because of it. Then you sprinkle in some fights that feel pointless due to how over powered all the characters are. No challeng

Lol, have you read Akagi?
>> No. 31040 [Edit]
>>31026
Yes, and it's a bit different. In Akagi they do indeed drag out matches and will at times make you wait for the next episode to see the rest of the match. The thing is though, you knew you were going to see the end of the match in the next ep, even if they drag it out to the end. Akagi (at least the animated version) had a had a decent conclusion at the end. The story was wrapped up in a nice little package, and it's a shame they don't do anime like that too often anymore. There's very little to suggest they'll -ever- animate the end of this anime. Much like many other anime out there that never had their endings animated, let alone anything past the first couple chapters. Now it's all about having IPs companies can milk installments out of every few years. Anime producers have been clear cutting the manga and LN fields for decades knowing full well it's an unsustainable practice, and it's catching up to them. Now dang near every anime is just a segment of a story, that combined with stretched out small amounts of content is makes this anime and others like it feel like a waste of time in it's current state.

let me rephrase. Akagi was like watching people play a complete chess match and take 15-30 minutes between moves. Overlord is watching people set up the board for an hour, make a move, then stop and tell all the people watching to go home and come back in two years. Then when you come back you find them playing dungeons and dragons and have to force them to get back to the chess match. They then make a couple moves after taking hours between each one, then tell you to come back in a few years. Mind you at this point they're still just moving pawns out of the way and don't seem to have much of a game plan.

Nice way to explain it. Sounds annoyingly boring then. I was thinking the same a few weeks ago, sooner or later the well of LNs and Manga will dry. They're already making sequels, offshoots, remakes and such of anime. The future is slightly grim.
