As a person who watches animations, would you be interested in this? Why or why not?


No. I don't like the cg very much. I don't like the producer's other works. I don't like the Japanese guy speaking Japanese and everyone inexplicably understanding him. Also it feels weird that only oNE person speaks a different language when each person has a unique accent(something akin to cityspeak would of been far more appealing but world is still the world apparently). Mecha is hit or miss in general for me. Overall the concept seems janky.

Tbh, I didn't notice the racist/nationalist stuff until it got mentioned here, because I am dumb and don't pay attention.

Yo I’m about to go to war to defend the “goblin slayer is bad” stance so explain more about this so I don’t get stomped

Second to last episode of Goblin Slayer is pretty good.
Looking for love in Alderaan places.

I can't tell if anime actually used to be better or if it's just the nostalgia.


Both

People telling the same story ad nauseam isnt really an excuse for a lack of inventive or novel storylines in the entire art form. You can point to any other medium and find something profound. I cant do that with anime for the past decade at least. Not to say that I cant find a show that's at least "good" or entertaining, but the ratio of bad:good anime is just awful and theres hardly anything I'd call great. It feels like a boring mechanical process where we get a dozen or so shows every 3 months on the dot that will only ever get one 12 episode season and it's all basically some kids borderline pornographic fanfiction manga being adapted and I'm just like

In post 7913, Gamma Emerald wrote:Is Darling In The Franxx actually good? I’ve seen stuff around but watching Gigguk’s 2018 anime review gave me pause.


No.

I watched all of season 1 thinking that they were, under all the gross shit, secretly about to do something really meaningful and gr8, had some tinfoil hat interpretation about pink hair + best boy = CRYPTIC METAPHOR FOR ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS but then instead they just normalized all of the bad things because after all women just need to be loved and then they'll stop being so fucking crazy amirite hahahaha (sigh)

Then season 2 completely shit the bed as the only strong character they had was reduced to just being protag's love interest, the gross shit kept getting grosser and more numerous, the storyline unraveled into an awful mess, and whatever the hell there was about season 1 that I thought could have been potentially "cute" was very decidedly not cute. There was no big story point being reached for that made them deserve the benefit of the doubt while they figured it out, it was just a gross show about little kids in doggy style sex mechs and how the only point of living is to reproduce, or something.

Maybe you should watch some actual kids shows instead of fake kids shows instead. Might I recommend Precure or Aikatsu?

I thought the first episode handled things way better than the first few chapters of the manga did, and I liked the manga.

Is anyone here watching the 2019 Dororo series?

For those who don't know. Dororo is the second TV adaptation of Osamu Tezuka's late 1960s manga. It follows an orphan thief named Dororo who encounters a mysterious swordsman who had literally everything taken from him, including his skin, when his father made a deal with the demons to give up anything in exchange for power and prosperity to his village.

You can watch it today on Amazon Prime Video and they will put up new episodes every Monday. I love the concept behind it, not to mention that it has fluid animation. Plus as a Tezuka fan, I just had to give it a shot.

I rewatched it several months ago and quickly realized that me at age 18 had terrible taste and was probably easily amused by this hip new thing I'd started getting into called "animoo"
