It's really cute! The characters are all moe. I like the main cast a lot.

The setting is beautiful. I enjoy the design of the town, it reminds me a bit of Kyousougiga.

The divination methods are interesting. I'm curious as to what Chiya's method will be - The scene with the kokkuri was a pretty jarring change of tone.

>You leaned too heavily on your anger and it misled people about your opinions and upset other posters.
I'm not sure if I'd call it 'anger' per-say, but you're right. I did paint myself into a corner there that made people blindly hate me and refuse to acknowledge anything I said as such. Yes, I do like anime, in-spite of thinking a large amount of it is terrible (including the stuff I liked) and I'm sure I even mentioned that before. In fact I've logged more than 11k ep of the stuff, spent thousands of dollars on merch, have had the same waifu for a decade, and swore off 3dpd ages ago.
The problems with anime applies to just about any medium honestly. As someone who also watches tons of movies (I have a lot of free time) I can tell you there's a lot of parallols, especially in how formulaic they tend to be.

In retrospect I think the real issue is these shows and charts have really horrible descriptions that don't do the shows justice. Anything will sound like garbage if they all read as: "mc-kun is a normal highschool boy blah blah meets beautiful girl blah blah saves the world." Granted a lot of these shows do end up sucking all the same, but it would help if they didn't sound so horrible to start with.

Watched the second episode and I 'get it', enjoying it.
The first episode focused too much on world exposition, where the world has no story/lore and is more a visual spectacle.

I got it as well; my thinking was a more general 'Trigger Studio feel'.

it's definitely influenced by Trigger works. studio 3hz is relatively unknown, i think flip flappers is the only thing they've worked on but i like the 'vibe' a lot. i predict/hope we'll see a lot more of these klk-esque anime in the coming years.

take no game no life which was basically klk by madhouse.

anime should always strive to be visually confrontational/appealing.

The year 2015 CE.
The last era in which magecraft still thrived.

The Chaldea Security Organization was founded to focus on preserving the continuation of human history. They observe a world which magecraft couldn't observe and science couldn't measure all to prevent the certain extinction of humanity.
But one day, the future that Chaldea continued to observe disappears and humanity's extinction in 2017 becomes clear. Rather, it had already happened.

The cause seems to be related to Fuyuki, a provincial town in Japan, in the year 2004 CE. There, an "unobservable region" that had not existed before appears.

Based on the assumption that Fuyuki is the reason for humanity's extinction, Chaldea issues an order to explore, investigate, and possibly destroy this singularity – a quest for the Holy Grail, the Grand Order.

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.

>>27610
>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.

Serious image board users, in my experience, have poor social skills but are fairly intelligent.

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.
