hmm a few thoughts
1) it did end up cleaning up a bit too neatly.
2) Magane’s fate is not explained.
i need a wife that will say such things to me and do such things with me
sorry, i’m not usually like this… but there are so many female characters that i like this season.
glad i marathoned this though.
i thought this show would lose steam… but wow.
definitely A rank, and a must watch for serious anime / otaku subculture fans.
i really like meteora.
this central theme of the show… maybe it was intended or not, but there’s another step that is only implied so far: the role of the psyche, and collective consciousness / unconsciousness.
when was the last show that had so many grown men cry
but her… this conversation was meta-ly meta.
this show’s premise is quite spectacular… the quality could have been much better overall though.
(catching up on spring shows)
yabai this show is so good.
the interwoven subtle intricacies are pulsatingly enjoyable
… though the animation is not the best, the voice acting could be the better, the BGM is alright… but the story and characters are amazing.
BEST girl of show
i would like to live near a riverbank
a peculiar reference to ufotable studio
this character is designed to be hated.
i watched the first few minutes and thought – eh another fantasy world and real world collide / story about creators of otaku culture media…
this show is done quite well
it is an anime original.
the director is あおきえい Aoki Ei I’m sure his directing has a big part of it. It looks like he’s done Fate/Zero and the first and sequel movies of Kara no Kyoukai – both I like and think were done well. really, this show would have been terrible without him. i think.
art could be better, voice acting is pretty good, though maybe not top-notch (yet); BGM and OP/ED are done well.
the story is quite intricate and its interesting storyline and background is the iceberg for much more.
this show, in a somewhat subtle and roundabout way, introduces various concepts i like in anime: philosophical topics including personal identity, humanity/theology/divinity, free will, a tint of existentialism. these were probably intentional, but another layer that interests me is the underlying expression of the acceleration to the asymptote of an understanding of a collective/unifying identity at the horizon – the increasing human awareness and discourse of the collective mythos and its exposition though recursion and pattern recognition.
that was very INFJ of me
