I hear a lot of bad things about Seraph


Because people decided randomly in the last five years that all shonen was shit apparently.

Ignore those morons.

I think the "problem" with Seraph is that it is extremely unoriginal. It hemorrhages tropes. On top of having a main cast that is largely unexciting (aside from Shinoa Best Girl), the show appears to have nothing going for it, which, given the Internet's tendency to blow things out of proportion, becomes "this show is shit." What it does do well is execution. It's got decent pacing (slow start, but picks up quickly around episode 4ish?), solid animation, it plays its cards well, and it has bonus amazing backgrounds.

I just couldn't get into the world or the aesthetic or the extremely heavy BL leanings of Seraph. That doesn't mean it's bad, it just means it's not for me. It's for fujoshi who love cocks... and Zeke.

Seraph has some decent ideas, but a generic protagonist who constantly gets his way despite his own efforts, completely rushing through the part that should set stuff up (not to mention the ridiculous idea of having it be in what generally operates as a typical high school), and just generally relying more on tired tropes rather than putting in any real effort into its writing are causing it to squander its own potential.
I try not to go with the "best girl" folks, but Shinoa (especially with Saori Hayami's performance of her) really is the only part of the series that's been beyond the realm of guilty pleasure so far.
Some people just need to learn that their opinions are wrong

I think I'm going to start picking up the manga, too, Dark Horse is localizing it.

I say go for it. Got into the series in December last year and enjoying it. Got three volumes and enjoyed them.

Also surprised how no one talking about snafu s2 along with arslan and BBB along with denpan kyoushi and my love story. I'm also kinda enjoying yamada kun.

I always find statements like this funny, because the shows I really enjoy, 90% of the time, no one's talking about. So for me, it's usually "I'm surprised someone else is talking about so and so" :lol:

When somethings really good or really bad it's easy to talk about. People love to pick apart stuff other people really like/hate.

Mediocrity on the other hand...

Sometimes things are just solid enough that they don't really warrant discussion beyond

"Hey this is cool"
"I agree"
"Cool"

I think that's oversimplifying it.

If I'm "really enjoying" something, then I have a lot I could say about it. I just stopped saying a lot, because no one ever responds, and it got tiring to write so much and have no one even acknowledge it, and be just columns of posts with only my impressions :lol:

Euphonium episode 9 -

Still the best thing on every week. I felt nervous along with Kumiko during her auditions. Also, I think the way Kumiko says "Reina" is so soft and sweet. Always happy to see more interaction between them.
Spoiler:
Still trying to figure out if Kumiko really does have feelings for Shuichi. It definitely seems possible, but the way she acts around him normally doesn't make it seem so. Right now its looking more like its a case of she's questioning her feelings just because Hazuki told her she thinks Kumiko has feelings for Shuichi.

At least Euphonium isn't anywhere near as boring as Hyouka.

Hyouka was at least able to do a "mystery" style show without too much "someone was murdered" bullshit.
