e: the bit about not picking up that it's not aimed at guys kinda reminds me of After the Rain and people not realizing that the character people are thirsty over is the old guy.

it sounds to me like thread consensus from randos is that the show you’ve been looking forward to for months isn’t good so you shouldn’t bother

to realpost: i think in this discourse full environment that exists due twitter/discord/whatever means you should relish the chance to come in to a first ep with no one's opinions tainting your thoughts on a show you very obviously were looking forward to.

soliciting randos opinions for something like that is silly imo

you should ask for opinions when it's something you're curious about but not 100% committed to, not when it's a show you've been anticipating and were going to watch anyway

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

Boys sports are happening!!

Kabaddi is an anime I wasn't expecting much out of. It looks kinda cheap but I feel like the weird 3d crash dummy models they keep using for some of the explanation scenes really work. STRUGGLE is incredibly funny every time it appears as well. Best thing about it though is that the protag is an idiot chasing those streaming dollars so I'm very excited if it keeps the gremlin energy it's established with the crew

Bakuten was something I was super amped up for prior to the season but it's almost the opposite of Kabaddi where it has really nice impressive animation, but because they're doing a full on rhythmic gymnastics routine (like I think it was 2+ minutes with no cutaways or anything) you're getting a lot of CG during long shots. It was kind of distracting for me.

There's some nice looking stuff throughout the rest of the ep though, so I'm just going to hope they keep the full routines to a minimum. The characters set up are pretty fun, and they are 100% hammering this BIRDS AS A METAPHOR button it's really funny.

How dare people not conduct themselves accordingly to your arbitrary timetable? :confused:

You can't reasonably assume everyone has consumed every bit of relevant media simply because it's "available". I've got a couple seasons of Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia to catch up on myself.

how dare people not conduct themselves accordingly to your arbitrary spoiler rules? :confused:

imo it's polite to make an effort to spoil if you think someone would rather not see that info, but you gotta realize everyone has some amount of time in their brain where spoilers stop mattering. if someone was getting mad about ff7 spoilers i would lol at them, for instance

Bunch of folks ITT getting extremely mad at the idea of being considerate to people who haven't caught up on all the same media that they have.

The gently caress is it about people going 'hey, can you spoiler-tag this please' that makes goons go all HOW DARE YOU SIR?

I think if you try to police someone’s behavior for some infraction they consider minor or nonexistent than you are going to get pushback that you won’t enjoy

I say this as someone who has gotten mad several times at people dropping LN spoilers for airing shows, because that is within my arbitrary definition of “an rear end in a top hat move”. This arbitrary definition is different for everyone and trying to change it for everyone to meet your standard is something I think you should understand is a Sisyphean task

Lol at everyone seeing the word "trash" and their eyes going red. I should have known better considering this is exactly how the conversation started, but that was in the context of, you know, anime criticism and the discussion thereof. But don't worry, no one dogpiles here, and everyone is so media-savvy that they've never seen a show they don't like or found themselves disappointed by the end of it. :rolleyes:

Trashiness was not the subject. The subject was interesting shows that didn't meet expectations and are worthy of discussion on an internet forum.

going to be honest i don't remember whatever the other posts were about this but i wanted to let you know you sound like a giant dweeb
