What? Is this a spoiler or something in some insane way? I've never even watched AoT.

I think we really need someone to describe the whole AoT ending so we can tell if that was a spoiler

Idolhood is realized in the face of death



I don't know, I'm just a cry baby at endings like what I described . I would prefer it if Revnege ended with Franchouchou outting themselves, people accepting them, and being reunited with their families.

Here's a quote from the last page of the previous anime discussion thread:

Raenir Salazar posted:

It's been a while since I watched Haruhi, what was she mad at in that scene again? I assume Kyon?

Haruhi pretty clearly is likely to be discussed at least semi regularly, and goons being goons are likely to argue about it. I don't have search but I would be interested if someone who did looked at the discussion threads for instances of Endless 8.

Just coincidence. That being said I bet that it gets discussed at least a couple times a year in the discussion thread given how contentious it is.


Eh, it might not be exact but it gets my point across. Sometimes people in charge of shows or manga make really stupid decisions. IMO Endless 8 was a poor decision that cost them audience goodwill but that is not really provable. Also Endless 8 made me mad so I'll take potshots at it occasionally.


This is well put and I may as well put my crackpot theory out there: the angry reactions to Endless 8 shook the author's confidence (angry feedback, regardless of amount can stand out) and knocked them into a hiatus.

This is from an era where the revenue stream from North America while addictive I don't think would have affected the LN author's confidence. It might have resulted in them canning however that KyoAni pro-Haruhi producer was Japan-side but I can't see how it would have affected the author one way or another. Maybe the Japanese audience if it was similarly negative might have affected the author, but I doubt it because the author I think is going to care far more about the reaction/reception to the novel than about the adaption even though its primary goal is selling the novel.

I think it had to statistically happen that regardless of how successful your work is you get creative burnout and lose interest in dedicating every waking moment to that IP. Look at how much of GRRM's life revolves around Game of Thrones as a result of how successful it is, conventions, tie in novels, merch, screenlighting, consultations; no time to actually write or consider experimenting with something else.

Also even so, the way Endless Eight was adapted was all on KyoAni. The novels literally only did like one of the loops.

Super Cub was great. I found it more suspenseful at times than other more 'high stakes' things I've watched so far this season.

Super Cub and Odd Taxi are my favorites of the season so far - Iím at best cautious about Combatants Will Be Sent! and that permadeath VR MMO show

I watched the new MHA and was struck by how little I care about these protagonists / how much I hate Mineta / and how I want the various villains to mess up the metahuman police state or something in an act of creative destruction

I loved the return of Zombies, Revenge had good songs in the first episode. Also yeah the cgi dancing looked better than last season.

That kid really is the goddamn worst. I passively watch the show via a friend of mine streaming old editions of Toonami, and every time he's on screen stream chat immediately turns into "shut up grape kid" and "gently caress off grape kid".

it's my fault. i said that i didn't want zls revenge to end with them passing on and instead be outted as zombies, accepted by the public, and be able to be together forever.

it spun into Endless 8 discussion from there

Which, in turn, would make everyone else worse. So, in a way, Mineta serves a useful purpose, even if he still sucks.

But alas, not every Shonen Jump horndog character can be as good as Denji.

It's loving baffling to me that there was literally zero interaction between our protagonist and the other woman summoned to this world (or, like. literally anything from her, period- did she even get any lines?), but again, only the beginning, so who knows.

No, the other girl did not get any lines other than maybe a surprised gasp if that even counts. I don't think we've even gotten her name at this point.

The funny thing is that Horikoshi has said he knows a lot of people don't like characters like Mineta, which is why he deliberately limits Mineta's panel time. I suspect that actually makes people hate him more, though, because he doesn't really have room for character traits other than being a horndog.

horikoshi tried giving mineta a small character arc once and it was one of the wonkiest moments in that chunk of the story cause mineta was not conceived with any purpose other than perpetuating sex jokes, so

the lesson is that i'm bored of mha

hopefully we get something like that in ep 2 or 3, because like. you'd think even if the rest of the people at the palace dropped Sei like a sack of bricks that the other girl would still, you know, want to talk with the literal only other human being from the same world as her?

They spent all the budget for the Private Ogata guy to be the voice actor so the animation is just moving Photoshop layers around with the mouse.
