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.

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.

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.

A show about train girls coming up with ideas for merchandise to make trains popular.
>> No. 35108 [Edit]
I tried watching a couple ep of it, and it felt a bit lacking in direction. I know they don't have a lot of time to work with but it didn't seem like they established the characters or the setting particularly well either before throwing you into a plot line that feels like filler from a longer running series. Seemed like you'd need to have at least some prior knowledge about these characters to get the most out of this.

Why was the older thread deleted? While I've only finished the first episode, I thought it was at least promising as a slice of life.

Given that the story is about struggling comedians, I think it's to be expected that the jokes will fall a bit flat. (It also doesn't help that the fuckishit subs supposedly clobber any semblance of a joke. There are alternate ones made courtesy of someone on 4/a/, but they're delayed by a week).

I wonder if they'll keep the train joke as a running gag throughout the show. At some point it's got to elicit a chuckle at least.

Quite a shame, I thought it had potential but I supposed they took the struggling comedian angle a little too realistically. I feel like there is too much tie-in with real life which takes away quite a lot of immersion and the SoL. The senpai konbi feels so out of place and their amateur voice acting is painful to listen to, at least they are semi-relevant to the plot in the latest episode for once. I like the RDeco duo though.

Are there series you'd like to see an adaptation of or predict would be adapted in the near future? A few that comes to mind for me would be Dungeon Meshi, 'Tis Time for Torture, Princess, Chotto Ippai and The Ride-On King. The first three I expect would be adapted in the near future especially the first two as they are quite popular. I can see Dogakobo doing Chotto Ippai and 'Tis Time For Torture, Princess.

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 been a while since I've seen an anime this legitimately funny.
In a way it reminds me a lot of aqua teen hunger force of all things, Something about the style of animation and type of humor in this feels similar. Almost feels like it'd be right at home on adultswim, before it turned to full on absurdist stoner garbage.

>What logic? They're compromising their eye health, risking lazy eye and reducing their depth perception.
But with all that in mind, isn't easier to believe that someone would let their hair get that way as a result of negligence or vanity instead of someone intentionally keeping their bangs long but the rest of their hair short? The type of person to keep their hair short would probably not see a good reason to half blind themselves.
>I don't think the emo aesthetic is traditional either.
I was referring to the length of the rest of the hair. Short hair is not as traditional on women as long hair.
