Why does Shimamura still treat her like another delusional kid after seeing what she can do?
>> No. 35251 [Edit]
I'm still not sure what role Yashiro is supposed to play. Is there any meaning behind her relationship with Shimamura or is it just comedic relief? If I strain I guess you could handwave something about Yashiro being some sort of neutral third party with whom Shimamura can mull things over. Being inconsequential, their relation also carries little emotional baggage for Shimamura.

Ep 10 states the following point-blank in case there was still any doubt:

I don't keep up with people.
I don't really hold onto relationships\Nand that might make me coldhearted.
But here's how I see it.
There are so very few strong relationships
that flow along with you down this river of life.
The longer you stay in this river of fate,
the more bonds weaken, and eventually break.

Cute season finale. I think somewhere after the first half the show became noticeably weaker though; there started to be less focus on the nature of human interaction as viewed through an introverted, socially anxious MC (as >>34950 poignantly described). Instead it gradually shifted towards a more conventional yuri romance, focusing primarily on Adachi's attempt to confess her feelings.

That is to say I don't mind yuri at all, but a large of my initial draw towards this series was that their romance was but one thread in a larger tapestry of exploring that nature of interpersonal interaction. And it seems to me at least that the rest of that picture never fully materialized.

I think that only works well when done in moderation. Too many jets/tanks make the humans look weak. Like ants swarming an enemy.

I'm aware of the trope. But it hurts my intelligence to see a military just chucking away it's pilots in an obviously useless death rush against an enemy they apparently can't defeat and have not been able to defeat with the same pre-war fighters for five years. Then again this IS japan so maybe it doesn't seem that far fetched to them.

It's no wonder they would be, considering only girls can be witches, and only a select few from that, and even among those they can only practically serve as a witch for -10 years before they lose their power.

List your top 5 anime. They can include movies and ova's.

Mine are:

5)Kaze to Ki no Uta SANCTUS
4)Revolutionary Girl Utena
3)Fullmetal Alchemist (2003)
2)The Rose of Versailles
1) Berserk (1997)

Btw, no need to mention Cory in the House, It's such a good anime that there is just no need to state the obvious.

I'm a bit sad that you dislike it so as I feel it still did well in immersing one into Kino's journeys; however, there were some episodes that were too action heavy, I must agree with you.
The 2003 series fit quite well with the time in which it aired, and I feel the newest adaption is the same in this regard (e.g. the color palette, designs). Further, I think it's nice they didn't try to mimic the original (as it's certainly something special), and instead they tried to create an animation that stands on its own. Anyway, thanks for giving me your answer, anon! I can only hope there will be future adaptions.
>> No. 34684 [Edit]
Not him, but I really liked the new series because it adapted a wide range of stories from the novel. Apparently other people didn't care for this aspect as much.

>Also apparently there's yuri
Is it actually yuri (or even kirara-style shoujo ai) in any sense other than having "two female MCs"? People said that about bofuri too, so at this point I would be shocked (kuma shocked!) if those claims turn out to be valid this time.
>> No. 35273 [Edit]
Nice season finale, and the entire series turned out to be much better than I would have expected given the first episode and general isekai-esque description. it's really closer to Endro than Bofuri: more of a slice-of-life, and though her powers are a deus-ex-machina it really doesn't matter since unlike Bofuri the focus isn't on the wacky things they're doing but on the friendships and people she gets to meet. The ending scene also reminded me of that of Kemono Friends ("tabenaide kudasai... tabenai yo").

By the way, apparently a season 2 has been announced.
>> No. 35303 [Edit]
Thanks for bumping the thread. I wanted something similar to Bofuri as I'm enjoying it a bit right now so I'll look into this show and its supposedly horrific wolf-killings.
>> No. 35304 [Edit]
The first episode is anomalous with the pacing and tone of the remainder of the show; but other than that I think if you liked Bofuri and generally enjoy SoL there's a good chance you will enjoy this too.

That was pretty disappointing ending, almost frustrating in fact.
I mean like, the character seems to have a lot of issues, narcissism being a big one. It might have been nice to see her acknowledge these parts of herself and address them in an attempt to better herself and grow as a person. Some self reflection might have been nice, which is almost frustrating because during that body swap scene the girl in her body was basically trying to fuck her own reflection. It felt like a weird sort of irony considering how in love with herself Elaina seems to be. Characters looking at their reflection in anime typically represents a moment of self reflection, makes me wonder if this wasn't an intentional dismissal of that trope.

Then she goes and confronts other versions of herself along the places she visited, but everything about it felt wrong.
They don't address any of her issues and instead reinforce the idea that she's really truly perfect, the ep is more of a freak show to say "thank god she didn't get up like those other versions!" They aren't really parts of herself but instead her from alternate realities? The whole thing seemed like a real missed opportunity.
It's really weird too because during the 12 ep run there were times when she flip flopped in personality so hard she seemed like a different person all together.
The last ep could have been a great way to explain that, but nope. If nothing else they could have explained that we saw another version of her at those times when she seemed to be a different person. One episode she doesn't lift a finger to help someone who's dying, later she's crying and screaming about not being able to help someone. One ep she doesn't want to get involved with the princess and her battle, latter she's storming a castle and fighting off guards while attacking the king.
In the end I think this just wasn't particularly well written and it seems like it just gets by on having a pretty girl for a main character.
>> No. 35264 [Edit]
They mentioned that "a protagonist doesn't need any special characteristics" but that only works if you're making some sort of harem show. Not in a slice of life where the personality is one of the core defining features. I also sort of see what they were trying to convey where a series of "choices" could have each led to a different Elaina, but the presentation left a lot to be desired.

It's also not a good sign when the side-stories: Saya and Stardust were more memorable and interesting than Elaina's own.

I started watching Friends and I find the main character's voice is really distracting. They sound very amateurish, but that seems to fit with the character since she's fresh off the streets and is new to the whole idol thing. I wonder if this wasn't intentional so as to have the VA improve and evolve over the year long course of the series along with the character.
>> No. 35247 [Edit]
They try to play it off down the line as him being over protective of someone who's showing warnings signs and wanting to stop her before she go too far and hurts herself, but I don't really buy it that kind of backpedaling. If that were the case he would have tried to give her proper guidance and lead her down the right path, not bully her and try to get her expelled.
