ANIME TRASH TALK THREAD

Right, let's talk Seven Deadly Sins.

 

I like the setting. I like the tone. I like the art style; it's quirky without being ostentatious. The colour palette is vibrant. It's a good concept. The character designs are nice and the characters themselves are cool and fun to watch, for the most part. Now, if only Meliodas and Elizabeth weren't the most annoying fucking characters ever. Like seriously, Meliodas has a fucking awful and downright creepy/off-putting personality and needs a swift kick upside the chin and Elizabeth needs to fucking grow a spine and and a brain, if she even knows what either of those things are. They were made to fit archetypal roles and that's it. Chivalrous pervert hero, damsel in distress princess heroine. They're so damn tropey it hurts.

How much have you watched? I felt this way for the first few episodes (with the first episode being so damn perverted it almost put me off entirely). However it really improves once they focus on the actual plot.

I've yet to see the new episodes but this is a fucking crime =.=

I don't watch this series, the characters were too unbearable for my taste. But I keep up closely with any trainwrecks related to it lol

Not enough to be aware of this lol. Still, that doesn't really excuse characters who are that poorly written, imo. I'm fine with having a character who's a bit of a dick or maybe a bit annoying who then develops into a more understandable, relatable character, even if they do still retain their core characteristics that they had at the start (in fact, I like that as it makes room for character development) but I really can't deal with something that has something so unbearably frustrating that takes way too long to resolve and then the creators are like "ah, but this is what it's all been building up to!". Your job as a creator is to hook the audience from the beginning and make them wonder what happens next, not to annoy the everliving shite out of them and make them hope something actually happens next.

 

That being said, I don't doubt you seeing as you've obviously watched more than I have 😆

Trust me, I had all the same reservations and was pretty disgusted at the straight up sexism I saw. You're absolutely right, potential fans should be hooked from the get go! So when the episode ended with that attack I thought "hmm...I'll give it another shot". The next few episodes have the same effect admittedly but once it gets going, you'll enjoy it. Granted, Meliodas and Elizabeth are probably the most one-dimensional but the other characters are really likeable with their own respective, heart-wrenching arcs.

My relationship with Seven Deadly Sins is "it's that 1 in 10 shounen I (Almost) Liked". Tried to watch it recently again and... well, again I thought "hey, this is ok!... let's never watch it anymore" again. It's a pity because I love their seiyuu festivals (as my 2 favorite seiyuu happen to co-star there ...) but. Waste.

But honestly, IDK why but the only anime that has really hooked me up in the past 4 years or so has been Netjuu no Susume (ok, I do know - it's because I was a mmo nerd lol.) aside from KyoAni stuff of course ; Tsurune was a bless and I just wish 2019 hadn't happened 😕

 

In Other News, this Youtube channel is great and knowing Pizza Hut never paid enough for their product placement in Code Geass made my day

Anime doesent suck 

It swallows I've only watched 3 series 

Yugioh, death note (screw season 2), monster (only for Johan and they showed him like for 15 episodes) 

But nowadays it's either retarded fantasy, or knockoffs for example a colourfull skank, a op long haired repetitive main character, overdone settings, the list won't end the only thing I've ever liked about anime is like back in 2006 back when the Internet was a whole and not divided into tribes of elitist fucks scrubbing public attractions (woman rights, Lgbt rights, this goes on forever) so don't blame anime it's been a while since anyone's actually used creation or imagination because most retarded fucks only ever like imagining them being in the position of the mc feeling the desolate emotions of degeneration

Eh, I agree about the Seven Deadly Sins, tbh. The part with Elizabeth's power at the end of the first season was so lame, and Meliodas is just so bland and off-putting. Merlin's outfit is also so dumb and fan service-y that it's almost insulting. I don't know how anyone is supposed to take that character seriously when she's basically just always walking around in a bikini.

 

The main reason I've still been kind of slowly working through it is that I really enjoyed the storylines about King, Ban and Diane. King is such an adorable character, and a romance between a male fairy and a female giant feels sort of refreshing to see.
