Has anybody watched this? Is it any good?
>>
nobody watched this, sorry
>>
Seen about 3 episodes. I just kept on thinking that there was no reason for this anime to exist. It could be a live-action and you'd miss nothing. Would probably have better directing if it were LA
>>
>>166544714
Anime has never worked like that and it wouldn't be the same in live action. It would also have worse direction. Jdramas have pedestrian direction and production values.
>>
>>166544864
Budget constrains make for less shots.
Just Because is character driven, which means putting two real people in a room is inherently better, it creates something you're unable to capture animated.

>>166544930
Jdramas have even greater constraints. Live action isn't the same because it's a completely different medium and because instead of characters you have actors playing characters. Anime is not and never has been about limiting itself to things that can't be done in live action. If that's what you expect from animation then you should go watch American animation or something.
>>
The only interesting character in the show is the one with the worst ending. The main couple have next to no interaction, because the main girl has no character beyond "I really need to study for exams"
>>
>>166545051
>Jdramas have even greater constraints
None of which would hinder this transition.
>Anime is not and never has been about limiting itself to things that can't be done in live action
I disagree.
>>
>>166545210
What would hinder the transition is that this is anime and not live action and the two are not the same.

>I disagree.
You cannot disagree because this is not a matter of opinion, this is a matter of historical record and present reality.

It's terrible, typical Sakurasou author.

No it's shit.
It's the example of how you shouldn't write a love triangle.
>>
>>166545299
It's self-evident you insufferable newfag. Anime is full of shows that on a technical level could be done in live action in Japan. And many of them have (manga and LNs with both anime and live action adaptations).

I'm not a newfag but if that's all the evidence you have I think we're not getting anywhere.
>>
>>166545474
You are the newest newfag that ever fagged for not knowing the blatantly obvious fact that anime is not and has not been limited to things that cannot be done in live action. That is not part of what anime is whether you fucking like it or not.
>>
>>166545517
I don't think stating it like that makes you come of as clever. I'm not a newfag. So there's that.
>>
>>166544395
It was about as average as average gets. If you didn't watch it in-season then there's no reason to watch it at all. No one will remember it in a month.

Teenagers can't act.
Asians can't act.
IRL girls are never as cute as anime ones.
The idea that anime can't do realistic stuff is retarded.

Anime puts a "gloss" over things that would be completely laughable in live action. Kimi no Na wa, for example.

Not with that attitude.

We're going from asian > asian production here, so nothing would change

Only fair point, but I prefer watching something that feels real rather than mouth flaps talking for 20 minutes.
>the idea that anime can't do
I never said this. Evident by this anime that they can is it not?

None of these teens are relatable nor likable. Maybe Komiya.

More newfaggotry. This is a meme spouted by people whose anime experience consists of a half-remembered episode of DBZ when they were ten.
>>

I've never seen DBZ. Or are you going to call me a newfag for not seeing Toei anime?

Every josei/shoujo romance could work as live action but they still work as anime. Your opinion is irrelevant if you refused to watch Nodame because it doubles as a live action.

What's wrong? Just because something is culturally a thing and you felt obligated to watch it doesn't mean it was a world-wide phenomenon. I don't watch Toei anime because they're cancer. Are you going to actually present an argument yet?

So it's true that they hyped so said "best girl" to let some other girl win or loudest people just happen to like this one character? I read many comments like that and I hesistate to watch this.

Only the first episode is good, because at that time, your brain is not yet aware in what awful direction the author is about to take the story. It's misunderstandings + "red string of fate" garbage. MC chooses worst girl after getting cucked by her for four years. There's people who self-inserted as MC and defended his choice, which is even more pathetic, taking into consideration his love interest was already chasing after his best friend one year before he left for a long time, while he was still carrying boxes for her, and giving her his umbrella so she wouldn't get wet under the rain, then when he returns after three years, she's sill chasing after his best friend's cock. Adding insult to injury, she only gives him a chance after she's completely sure his best friend is not interested in inseminating her eggs, ever, and she MC as the rebound relationship guy. It's truly pathetic. Men who live this way should just kill themselves
>>
>>166544395
Drop it on ep8 and convince yourself that camera wins.
>>
>>166547482
*she uses MC as the rebound relationship guy
>>
>>166546962
Best girl is lovely, cheerful, mindful and dedicated to her interests and the well being of MC. Main girl was in love with MCs friend and when he was starting a relationship she decided she was in love with MC, sabotaging best girl. But because of idealistic shit like loving the first one that crosses your mind even when something better is in front of you, and to pull some cheap ass forced tragedy, the girl with more character, the one everyone empathizes with the most loses everything.

love is not supposed to make sense
holy shit stop analyzing and measuring the relationships based on merits - its not a academic test
>>
>>166548451
Except as a piece of media people have a right to judge a show on its merits. And that includes how well a relationship is developed in a romance, which in this case is not at all because the two characters barely fucking speaking to each other.

trash

beta orbiter gets permission from queen bee to orbit a little closer, for a while, while superior girl gets shot down by beta orbiter, because he has a fetish for NTR, and is hoping and praying he gets allowed at some point in the future to indulge in sloppy seconds.

It's a fun watch if you're not trying to be some kind of anime connoisseur.

Only good thing about this series where the first few threads.
>>
>>166549461
Who else are you going to empathize with? The girl whose entire character is studying rather than interacting with the cast? The girl with no character traits whatsoever? The dumbfuck MC?
>>
ITT: Rec me this anime

It's good, with its mistakes but it can be seen, except for the camerafags who only think that their self insert waifu lost and that's why it's a bad show.

Yes.

really dry
>>
>>166549904
And then there's guys like this who think it makes them cool to dislike the one redeemable thing about the show. Because clearly their taste is superior for liking the boring as fuck characters that never significantly develop.
>>
>>166544395
More bait and switch. Main girl gets fuck all development with MC.
>>
>>166544395
Very generic millenial love story.
>>
>>166544395
I thought it started off good, then it got worse. As others have said, best girl doesn't win and the ending kinda sucks. Tsuki ga Kirei and Kuzu no Honkai were much better.
>>
Only dumb camerafags self-inserted into Izumi in the abject desperation that he could forget his undeniable love towards the tsundere.

Patrician camerafags self-insert into pic related because they know the endgame is camera club X sex-hair.
>>166551505
Holy shit, camerafag calm down
>>
>>166553516
Tsundere would imply that she had any discernible character traits, or indeed meaningful interaction with the MC. Which would be wrong.
>>
>>166553712
She did. It was just in the past and was super generic and forgettable. Look, Izumi just has shit taste and is a dumbfuck. Why would you want to self-insert into him?
>>
>>166553830
Nobody wants to self-insert as him, because he's a bad character and the series as a whole is bad. I'm not a "camerafag", but even I can recognize that she's too good for the show she's in. And not because she's a waifu or got a bad end, but because she actually has a degree of character that isn't completely one-note, unlike literally everybody else in this shitshow.
>>
>>166554003
>but because she actually has a degree of character that isn't completely one-note, unlike literally everybody else in this shitshow.
Baseball guy had some character development about as on-par with Ena. He was dumb as bricks but he did have to grow up and accept his situation and Morikawa's in that they cannot financially and practically be together for the coming years. Ena had to accept the fact that she cannot win with Eita but accept his friendship and support. There's nothing groundbreaking about camera girl desu.
>>
>>166546866
The studio is cancer.
I haven't seen Dragon Ball Z
This is common knowledge to anyone that isn't a complete newfag.
>>
>>166554003
Are there people who think that Ena had character development just because it was the direct romance factor in the show? kek ... do not be fooled, your character only served to waifufags as you bite the bait, she was the same from start to finish as it never occurred to glimpse that she had some kind of aspiration and had to put her infatuation to that the character did not disappear and that in the end they put that scene of her desicion for a university only because they realized that it was the only character that had been on the air and with nothing.
>>
>>166551505
by the fact that it does not agree that Ena was the only good thing in the series and that the one who has lost makes it bad just because yes, does not mean that I like Mio.

These camerafags already look like remfags, that if you did not like your Rem, then you were Emiliafag, and I'm telling you like a Remfag.
