You know, that's fair enough. I wouldn't say the users here always "eschew serious discussion", but... well, it is a futaba imageboard, and one for people with mostly atrocious social skills.

>do you lack the ability to compete intellectually on a more substantial level?
No. I lack the caring to communicate with you on a more substantial level than name-calling in this thread. While I fully understand why this seems lowbrow, I'm not particularly concerned about that either.

This is not my common "style", and I'm sure we'll get along in other threads, unbeknownst to each other.

Somehow I feel an Okusama thread isn't exactly the best place for "serious discussion".

Just because it isn't a serious anime doesn't mean we shouldn't have a meaningful or fruitful discussion. You don't have to join in if you don't want to thought.

Okusama is an important groundbreaking anime. It may not seem serious to you because its "just a cartoon", but it covers important and controversial topics related to the reproductive rights of 2D anime girls.

I'm 20 ep into jojo part4 and... it's not very good lol.
It's really lacking substance. There's no over arching objective, threat, or goal.
It's just a lot of pointless dicking around. They had a rather straight forward premise set up early on but took care of it far far too quickly. It was nothing special but the mystery of who's creating stand users was much better than having absolutely nothing at all to tie things together. After that got resolved it became like watching and waiting and wondering if they're gonna establish a new over arching villain/goal for the characters.
Which I guess sort of came in the form of some random murder who feels very detached from the main characters, and is treated like a minor sub plot at best in a show that has no main plot.
Also, I find the setting very boring. they went from traveling the globe, to keeping everything in a small generic Japanese town. It's hard to switch from watching as they're traversing deserts and oceans while fighting for their lives, to watching characters go to and from school while occasionally getting into wacky hijinks on the way.
I thought it was neat at first they brought back part3's jojo, but then they had him sit in a hotel room jerking off and doing nothing for half the season. As of ep 20 the only episode he's really done much of anything in is one where they go hunt a rat of all things. Meanwhile part2's jojo shows up and as soon as he does they literally have him playing babysitter and nothing else.
They repeatedly bring out what seem like interesting villains, then kill them off or BEFRIEND them Nanoha style within an ep or two, most going with the befriending direction..
While I know nothing about jojo is supposed to be taken too seriously or read too much into, I still can't help but notice they're extremely inconsistent with the main character's power. They can repair stuff which is all well and goo, but they made a very clear point that he warps and distorts the things he repairs. That distortion thing only seemed to happen within the first couple ep after that only happened randomly. It's like the writer figured it'd be more convenient to have the power repair stuff normally and retconed it while not even being half way into the series yet. In gene

Just finished it. I like how part 2's jojo showed up early on so he could use his ability to find someone who showed themselves as soon as he arrived anyway. Then did absolutely nothing at all aside from kidnapping a baby. Then while much of the second half of the anime revolved around trying to find someone else he was nowhere to be found.

>>27608
Maybe so, but I don't believe it's intentional.
In this season things were so over the top silly and ridiculous that I could 'almost' believe it was intended, but it didn't feel like it was meant to be a comedy to me. There's no shortage of hilarious moments sure, but things seemed far too dark, gritty, and violent for this to be a comedy for one. The very first villain was introduced as someone who liked to rape and kill people, including children. You've got to have a twisted sense of humor to include something like that into your comedy. Besides, comedies tend to be episodic with actual jokes or funny situations. This was around half episodic half serial and there wasn't much in the way of actual jokes, the focus here was largely on action. The humor mainly came from "are you serious" moments, the kind found in movies that are "so bad they're good". I think the best proof of this is the main character's retconned power. They originally had him distort things he fixed which could have been a comedy gold mine, but it was changed to be more practical and usefully in and out of fights.

Apparently there's going to be an OVA, where Rinne and Jill get additional focus, but I think the damage is already done. Tsuzuki is far from being new to writing, so it's a bit sad when even a series like Keijo has better written characters.

She's supposed to be smart but says mindbogglingly retarded pretentious garbage like this? The guy works two jobs and lives in a state of poverty to pay off debt he didn't accumulate himself to pay off a horrible bitch that makes his life hell. You can't be fucking serious...
Do they honestly expect anyone to feel sorry for that gigantic cunt? He should be licking her tears and laughing in her face, not feeling sorry for her just because she lost a living stress doll. What the literal fuck? I MEAN WHAT THE FUUUUCK?!
If I could I would beat this woman over the head with her own baby to knock some sense into her.
Then the guy discards the fucking lottery ticket out of some kind of guilt/paranoid fear for the debt collector! WHAT THE GOD DAMNFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK is wrong with these people?! It's like everyone in this anime is a moron or an asshole to some degree ...just like real life work places.
Sayuri is cool though.
Anyways, fuck this, dropped.

i was just searching ovas on nyaa and and saw some genshiken stuff. that reminded me of how greed and lack of creative abilities amongst the anime industry neurotypcals can take hold of a good series and ruin it real hard.
if you're not familiar with genshiken it started out as an all male anime club with one member having a gf and the series being somewhat unique and particularly amusing & interesting to real otaku. after a few seasons it was an all female costume club anime with a focus on relationship drama and fanservice.
working! was similar, it was uniquely good slapstick comedy in it's opening seasons and turned into just another soap opera by s3. makes me kind of happy for all the great animes which never got the 2nd or 3nd seasons they deserved. most of them would have been ultrashit. you thought endless 8 was crap? what if next season is a chunimoe crossover? suddenly endless eight is an all-time classic.
what do you estimate the odds are that the moneymen at kyoani or any of the other big time anime conglomerates & subsidiaries could produce a worthy sequel to any of the unfinished works of art which pepper anime history?

No problem. Although Keijo seeks to market itself as ecchi, and as such features female bodies comparable to what you would see in a hentai, it also subverts the sexuality of these body types through its satire. More over, as you can see in my pic, it even draws these bodies, which would normally be very sexually appealing, in an absurd light to emphasis its humor. Although these women are build to be sex objects, they are also objects of humor. I think this is part of the reason why other viewers on this board see the Keijo girl's bodies as gross.
>> No. 27552 [Edit]
The Youmu-esque girl is DFC. There's something for everyone in Keijo! It utilizes moe elements with some skill. It's not all ass jokes. It's just mostly ass jokes. I personally like Keijo a lot. It's a solid series. It always gets a sensible chuckle out of me.

I've not been keeping up with the anime, though. I prefer the manga.

Regardless of your feelings in any extreme, posting images of human beings in /an/ is not cool.

How does the newly planned Code Geass - Fukkatsu no lolouch for 2017 make you guys feel?

Does it make you reminisce of when CG first aired in 2006 or whenever you first saw it? Are you excited?

Apparently, it's a sequel to the events of r2, featuring Kallen, Orange, and Suzaku as the main characters. I'm also hoping this ends the notorious "lolouch was actually alive" argument once and for all.

It could be the biggest thing since R2 or flop hard if it doesn't have lolouch and C.C. The main characters were such a driving force in that show's popularity, I just can't see it being as big without them. Kallen and Suzaku are not the most interesting characters, after all.

Although Kallen has those tits and Suzaka has dat ass.

This one had a lot potential, but they had to make it be about competitive drama instead of cute girls enjoying athletics & therefore this anime is dropped like a hot potato as the saying goes. I made it almost to the end of ep1 before dropping, the first like 10minutes or so were really promising, enjoyable & most excellent.
better luck next time, japs!
