It's pretty superficial to just look at the ending like that. If you look at the dream sequence as something that will actually happen, then it speaks louder than an actual confession, because you already know how the characters are feeling, there's no need to say anything. This avoid the problem of saying it now, because it will probably happen down the line in the LN which would interfere with any future season. that won't happen...but you got to play it safe...

Fair enough. Has the second route played out any better?

That was actually a pretty cute episode. Much better than the first two at least.... These are much weaker than Amagami overall with much less direct relationship development. I really like the ED though!

I was promised despair but all I'm getting so far is good guys styling it up to the sound of intro songs. That's some bad advertising !

The CG can still look quite ... CG in spots but that's a small price to be paid for the scale, freedom of camera and amount of movement it enables. I'm still not a fan of the visual design of Festums but at least, as promised, the new types and tactics make the battles more engaging than hitherto.

Shana and Durarara are the only ones I recall from the top of my head. Zero no Tsukaima came close, I feel like they wanted to finish the whole thing but the author could not finish it before he sucummed to his illness.

Fuuka ep.8

OH my, I'm going to gush a little bit here. This was the episode of the season for anything I've watched so far. The concert was excellent; full of emotion and hype. They did overdo the crowd hate a little, but the bands reaction was absolutely great. And that ending, my goodness.... Heartfelt, realistic, and just so much right about it. This was great. Like, really, really great.. It's a shame that this childhood friend is absolutely going to get destroyed by the end of the show. It's not even a question given the shows name. I'm sure the twist is the climax of this... Oh well, this episode was just excellent from start to finish and you could really feel where the characters were all coming from which is rare for a show to accomplish.

The best.

It's getting a lot more enjoyable. Seems like the show is more about the military unit, the various hostage situations, guns etc. and the robots are just one of the many war assets. Nevertheless, the fight with Gauron was cool. The current arc has another faction in the game, so things are getting more interesting. It doesn't seem to be just good vs evil.

The humor also has gotten better, though the laughs are coming exclusively from Sagara's antics. The concept is pretty simple and yet it works unexpectedly well.

I saw that new seven deadly sins episodes were coming to Netflix this month which made me happy because I like my generic battle shows. Turns out it's only four episodes and not a new arc. Well that's underwhelming

You should already know the childhood friend is going to get absolutely crushed by the end of the show.. It's named after the other girl after all.

Not to dig this up but since I was still sleeping while you guys were discussing this.

I remember I first watched SAO when Toonami was broadcasting but dropped it after the first few episodes because I found the episodes pretty boring. At that point, all I knew about the series was that Ainclad was apparently supposed to be amazing and Alfheim had a severe dip in quality.

Fast forward to SAO2 premiering, everyone was hyping that up to being a return to form, so I decided to finally go in and finishing watching SAO. I honestly did not care for Ainclad much. Kirito was a pretty boring lead and I hated everything about Yui. And yeah, Alfheim was some hot garbage.

SAO2 had the exact same problems that the original one did, only this time the more likeable side characters were completely left on the bus so I had zero investment.

They're both like a 3 in my book.

While still being good, this is starting to feel a bit too tortured, too poly-amorous, and with characters being more and more... scummy?
Which it was something that I was fearing from the first episode, I know part of the series is about that, but until now I feel they hadn't crossed an invisible line of 'too much'.

That isn't true either.

They want to push into the American market because they're short sighted and forgot they were in the toilet 5 years ago. I suspect they won't really try but if hey did it would be a huge disaster.

but yeah, your second reference are the endings that hurt the most. Those "Go read the manga/LN" ending hurt the most.
I would like to strangle the fu(kers that do that with 0 fu(ks given, lol. Looking at you SNAFU/Alderamin

Well I much prefer that to bad original endings. But then I am happy to read, and have gotten more more heavily into that. I'm now at the point where I read more than I watch.

I'm not really sure what the answer is given anime makes much less money on its own than it does drive sales of the original material. Do you instead only adapt things that are complete? And even then butcher the material so it can't be cut down to 13-26 episodes? Or should they not even adapt manga or novels and instead just make up their own crap based on a works premise?

Ironically I became more annoyed at how US comics don't get proper adaptations after consuming anime, manga and LNs for a few years.

It's melodrama, but I don't expect it to descend into jdrama-melodrama (melodrama^2?). It feels set up for the characters to learn about themselves and have moments of redemption. I just hope that doesn't mean everyone conveniently pairing off together.

I suppose if it goes full yandere, then the show was successful at being the biggest troll in a while. lol
