How quick people are to forget. It's funny to think some things can be such massively popular hits one day, only to quickly fall into obscurity the next. I truly can not remember the last time I saw anyone so much as mention evangelion, where as it used to be all anyone could talk about for the longest time. Likewise it's hard to look back and believe something like k-on or lucky star was once a massive hit. I guess without new material to hold people's interest, this is doomed to hit everything sooner or latter. Just seems a bit sad to think about.

>I didn't see K-on as interesting to begin with. The girls are cute but... I guess it ultimately lacked the depth of, say, Azumanga or Lucky Star.
I don't think that's true. The level of detail put into K-On really elevates it, and the way the cast develops slowly over the course of the series is wonderful. I think the graduation scene in K-On is at least as impactful as Azumanga's. They're both among my favourite series, anyway.

A 4-way chibi crossover with characters from 4 different isekais. Has the isekai genre gone too far?

Very unpopular opinion, but I've wanted to get it off my chest for a while: I don't like Haruhi. At least, I don't anymore. When I first watched it, it was fine. My tastes weren't really developed and I just watched whatever. Looking back on it though, it was a disappointing experience, and I don't just mean season 2. I watched it in chronological order. The first few episodes got me really excited. I loved the premise and thought a lot of crazy, mind fuckey things were going to happen. The possibilities were endless. I was excited to see all sorts of people ask the SOS Brigade for help with supernatural problems. I was excited to see more of the "radical alien faction" or something. I thought Kyon was going to go through a lot of traumatic shit. Haruhi's kind of a cunt, but if she gets better or if there's some repercussions for it, it's fine. Then the baseball episode happened, and most of the show ended up being like that. I get this is a consequence of the source material. I get this is why they aired the episodes out-of-order. I still don't like it.

It's not that I don't like slice of life. I liked Azumanga Daioh. I liked Lucky Star. Konata wasn't a magical girl though, and she wasn't possessed by a demon. If the show is going to be high schoolers doing high school things, why can't they just be normal high schoolers? Why waste an interesting premise? It's not even a comedy. There's jokes and gags and references, but it's not funny funny like Danshi Koukousei No Nichijou. Same thing with Hyouka. After the first arc, I thought he was going to solve a murder case or something. Nope. With his genius level mystery solving powers he just hangs around school. There was a cultural festival, last-minute romance sub-plot, and that's it. I just checked, and other "stuff" did happen, but all of it was wiped from my memory. Both of these were adapted from light novels and I think that's a big part of it.

How far into a series do you go before deciding to drop it? What are your thoughts on the "3 episode rule" that has become colloquial knowledge and a de-facto threshold?

This may vary between genres, but for the SoL genre I find character interactions are the most important aspect that define the show and it usually only takes one or two episodes to ascertain the pacing, mood, and style. Similarly for comedy, where usually one episode is sufficient to determine the style of humor.

The issue with this is that I often have the lurking fear that I may have missed out on a show that gets better at a later episode. While these are usually an exception, some shows like Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san or Animegataris improve midway through with the addition of a character or mild subversion of expectations. It seems absurd to watch an entire series that one has no interest in solely based on this fear of missing out though, so where do you draw the line in deciding to stop watching.

Basically this. I've even done the reverse and dropped a show when there was only one episode left.
>> No. 33745 [Edit]
I enjoy dropping shit quality anime so much that sometimes I download ep1 of whatever just to see how quickly I can positively assess it's shittiness and confidently drop it.
I wasn't always like this, but year of wasting my valuable free time giving crap anime 2nd, 3nd & 4nd chances taught me the lesson. There is some regret involved in dropping at ep 5, while dropping at minute 5 is more like freeing yourself from a burdensome responsibility.

Been watching anime for like 26 years. I definitely don't need 3 episodes to know if I'm going to like a show. Generally the first 5-15 minutes of ep 1 is enough.
>> No. 33821 [Edit]

Yeah they rarely have any substantial twists past the first ep. ep 1 and 3 just seem to be where they put the most attention to detail.

What are some themes from anime which you disagree with? A lot of times when I'm watching anime, I feel as if the characters are being as mouth pieces for the creators. This is a problem in itself, since I think it's better to let your audience think for themselves, but it's especially annoying when the message is something I think is bullshit or just doesn't make sense. Kokoro Connect is one of the worst examples I can think of. I don't even remember what they were trying to say, but I couldn't stomach how they did it. The teacher arch in the World Only God Knows was just confusing. Are overbearing teachers a good or bad thing? Did Keima just say what the teacher wanted to hear? I didn't get it.

Mob Psycho 100 is a show I really like, but when I take a step back, its message doesn't make all that much sense. On top of that, Mob is a favorite show of "politically conscious" "anime fans" who like to criticize actual otaku. Basically, the shows says average relationships with average people are the most valuable thing a person can have, nobody is better than anybody else because of natural aptitudes, and having ambitions that could affect others or wanting to change how the world works is juvenile and foolish, so growing up means being content with the status quo.

We never learned how Claw planed on ruling the world. For all we know, they would have done a better job than the governments that currently exist. There's no reason given to think otherwise, except that Claw is just made up of "average people". It's like the show is implying the current governments have a divine right to power and officials have magic governing powers which separate them from "average people". Why? Governments came to exist through brute force to begin with, so how is replacing them through brute force unjustified? Somehow, Mob is never rewarded for preserving the status quo or punished for having his powers(experimented on).

The idea that all people can change and become better no matter how much of and for how long they've been a cunt is also bullshit. There's no real basis for that(there's a lot of evidence to contrary actually like people getting sued for performing cpr). I also don't buy the Claw boss having a wife and kid. What

Maybe it's because I work in vineyards in the countryside all the year, but I really dislike the view of countryside as peaceful and cozy. I understand that it is framed from the point of view of people who live in cities and it reflect (probably) the view of a nation torn between a westernized future and a traditional past, but I still hate it.

I dislike when everything rests solely on the main character's shoulders, and absolutely no one else can help them accomplish the objective. Things just don't work that way, as one can only accomplish so much by themselves, much less changing the world. The writing normally has to be really contrived to make up for this, which generally just leads to an unpleasant viewing experience, at least for me.

I like seeing teamwork in action series. Like actual teamwork and not just the MC destroying the antagonists with his "friendship" beam or whatever.

Particularly I would like to mention that the raws of latest Seitokai Yakuindomo OVA are now available which is particularly important because WE ARE SYD, but I am also planning to use this thread in a few weeks to tell everykyon about the new Kiss✕sis OVA.

Probably because it spends more than half of its time making fun of isekai/romcom tropes. The characters just happen to be interesting and written well enough to make it work in the long term.
