Like, it took a turn from what it was to what it became and the ending threw it out the damn window. Basically nothing got resolved it felt like a big F you to us who invested our time to the story and the characters.

Did it try to go out like some Evangelion psychological bull that "yup, the world is skreeonked up and it'll still be skreeonked up no matter what"?.

Like, what the Hell man.

I must be crazy but I liked the ending. I don't agree that nothing was resolved especially with the characters but thats just me.

Eren was never free, Mikasa will forever be shackled to Eren, Eren is a mass murderer that accomplished nothing since everything stayed the same.

Just too many things that are insane to leave on.

Even if Eren killed 100% of the world outside Paradis in a couple of decades the people left on Paradis would have started in fighting for any multitude of reasons. Human nature doesn't change and war and hate are fundamental elements of human nature. The best possible course of action is to
Spoiler:
Remove the titan curse from humanity preventing any more deaths at the hands of titans and by destroying enough potential enemy forces to give his now titan powerless friends and country men a fighting chance against the rest of the world. Eren really did love Mikasa and Mikasa obviously loved Eren and you can't just walk away from those powerful emotions even when its the moral or healthy choice to do so. Again thats just basic human nature.

Just finished Endless Eight IV. This skreeonking show, man. Not only have they
Spoiler:
gotten me to watch the same episode four times now, but I've been on the edge of my seat every time. :lol: The building tension is insane. Not just any show could pull a stunt like this and make it work so well. And I absolutely love the attention to detail; the animators spared no expense making each episode just slightly different, with changing outfits and camera angles and so on. That must've been such a fun, unique challenge for them. Also, poor Nagato. I've rarely felt more sorry for a cartoon character. Every time she rattles off that number of repetitions is an emotional bat to the face like something out of Madoka Magika. Well... almost.

This right here. This is exactly how I felt and still feel about this arc.

I'll rally in support of the Endless Eight arc too; it gets a LOT of flack for what it is, but I really enjoy the subtle differences in details and tonality between each episode. Granted, I come from the benefit of being able to watch the arc multiple episodes at a time, so it's easier to spot the differences, perhaps. How are you spreading it out, @Jagzilla?


...Oh, and I am WAY behind on AoT. I kind of lost interest in the manga, and I'm at least a season behind on the anime. I do intend to finish the anime, at least; but once the plot got more involved in the mysteries I felt it got convoluted.

I watched the first episode, then went a few weeks without watching any (not the show's fault, I was just focusing on other hobbies) then went through the rest over the course of a week or two. The last three I just watched straight through. I definitely understand why the arc would get flack; I appreciated watching for the differences, but eight consecutive episodes that (minus the first and last) were 90% identical was a lot, and I was starting to get bored by the end. It was a cool concept and they executed it well, it just should've been an episode or two shorter.

And unless you're very patient and/or have a lot of spare time to burn, there's not much rewatch value. That's basically six episodes that you're going to skip if you rewatch the show.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train was STUNNING

My Hero Academia and Demon Slayer are my two favorite properties/franchises that are currently going these days. Hollywood just doesn't really produce much that is worthwhile these days.

Same. I already really liked Demon Slayer before Mugen Train, but after seeing it? Love it just as much as MHA. Can’t wait for Season 2!

My brother and sister are big fans of Demon Slayer. I'll have to give it a try when I finish Haruhi.

I'm not into Haruhi. It's relaxing when I watch it, but the pacing and plotting leave me shaking my head. I would still recommend watching the Disappearance movie regardless.

I'm still in probationary period, so I can't express how much I enjoy Bungou Stray Dogs by wearing a Dazai Osamu avatar :(. I think he's the best character in that series :)

I just came here to post this. I've been reading it since I saw the original anime series, such a shame it won't be finished now, so much story wasn't covered yet. Only 54 years old too, RIP.

Maybe people who worked along with Miura on the manga could finish his work.

I’m about to start watching Neon Genesis Evangelion, and afterwards I’ll watch End of Evangelion. I heard it’s one of the best anime of all time.
We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day…

I decided to finally watch Gojira: Singular Point and the silver permed guy; Yun is the kind of smart you see described in comedy skits describing anime tropes.
