Just wanted to remind everyone of the best scene and seiyu performance of 2014.
What's so bad about it? I mean, the material itself is arguably a bit hammy and dumb and yammering on about a single point for way too long, but what's wrong with the performance?
It's not bad. I didn't say it was bad. It's fine, but what's bad is that the standard is so low, that this is the best of the year. THIS should be the standard. It shows how generic and mass produced anime is as a medium
Every other medium is generic and mass-produced to the point that such a monologue would be considered above-average in any of those other media, so I don't understand your point.
>and what about oy vey
>do you want to be a Jew?
Kek, I love being a /pol/tard.
Yeah, film has so much better acting than anime am I right?
That's not true, though. Voice acting of this level is nothing spectacular in any other medium. It might have been the high point of the movie or game or whatever, but not the whole year.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND
I NEVER UNDERSTAND WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT OKAY?!?!?!?!?!
JUST TELL ME SOMETHING I CAN UNDERSTAND, SOMETHING OTHER THAN NOT BRINGING FRIENDS AND CALLING IT IN AND GETTING TO STAY ON THIS PLANE
Goddamn I wish I was there when they recorded this.
Scene would probably be better if there was more animation than just mouth flaps and fixing the view on static objects.
I do like Saori Hayami though (never watched this but sounds like her) and her character is right, chuuni is fucking dumb.
It is true. You sound like one of those ultra-sophisticated "cultured" types who look down on certain kinds of media for not being of high enough quality, or not challenging enough, or something stupid like that. All types of media are watered down and catered to the lowest common denominator in order to move units. Performance of the year? I don't think this moment should be labeled as that, either. But to insinuate that this moment would be clearly surpassed by moments in all other media is dismissive and short-sighted.
You're reading comprehension is ridiculous. You've not understood a thing I've said. I didn't say it was the performance of the year, but I said people are treating it like it is, and they're doing so because the standard and everyone's expectations are so low, that most voice actors and directors can't even be assed to put forth this level of effort, which isn't even a lot to begin with. Every medium has molds but anime is one that is completely content with sticking to them and no one ever even tries to break them
>anime is one that is completely content with sticking to them
True for the most part. And it is true for all other forms of media as well. That's all I'm trying to say.
>no one ever tries to break them
Not true. There are hundreds and thousands of genre-bending and mold-breaking works in all types of media, including anime. It's harder to gain access to those works because they don't sell. Pretty simple.
That's not Sugita's "Hitori Persona Gekijou" on Persona Stalker Club #07 (ie. Sugita playing out a fictional Persona scene by imitating Ishizuka Unshou, Morikubou Shoutarou and Madono Mitsuaki).
>Best scene of 2014
>Not Karin and her steel of mind scene
Wow these bitch lost her shit because a teenager couldn't give proper explanations about mythical weaponbabble.
If she was so interested in knowing about them to be accepted in the chuuni circle, why didn't she learn about them herself? I mean how can you explain Longinus's spear or Mjölrnir to a normalfag? "Well one is the spear Longinus used to stab Jesus Christ during his Crucifixion and the other is Thor, the god of thunder's hammer"
What else does she need?
Except if you watched the show or read the novels you'd know she's been putting up with his shit for YEARS. And it's stated that like half the time he was asked about it, he gave the same response: 'You wouldn't understand.' Yeah, her flying off the handle like that is pretty fucking justified.
Oh no bro, I actually read a little bit about your stupid chuuni shit so I know a little bit about it. So tell me.
But no, she's completely justified by feeling entitled to get 100% accurate information about different mythologies from a Japanese teenager, yep. All those years of neglect, she could have spent a few hours into a book so she could keep up with his chuuni bullshit but no, getting told "you wouldn't understand" is far better, am I right?
She also states in I want to say episode 11 where she tried delving into the very same bullshit he was talking about by reading such books and she still didn't understand it or his fascination with it. Ball's back in your court bud.
I don't know what chuuni means either.
>she tried delving into the very same bullshit he was talking about by reading such books and she still didn't understand it or his fascination with it.
>she still didn't understand it or his fascination with it
Then she was just an entitled cunt who made that whole scene to make a very dramatic "stop liking what I don't like" or in this case "what I don't understand"
What a fucking megabitch.
I mean, I understand why she would feel distressed after all those years of neglect and getting pushed aside but still, it could have been fixed in a more mature manner without all the tears if both parties would had a little bit of understanding about each other.
This girl wants me to tell her, sure she never understands what I'm talking about but that's not a reason for not telling her, specially after how many times she insisted me to tell her and she know the dude is tired of explaining stuff she doesn't even care about to her so why bother him about it.
Let me ask you something Anonymous, although this is going into ad hominem. Would you try to explain in detail what your fascination with cute anime girls is to a normalfag girl? What if you already did but she keeps bothering you and no matter how many times you tell her she still can't grasp the basics of your so called moe.
How'd you feel then?
It means teenager with an overactive imagination.
>it could have been fixed in a more mature manner without all the tears if both parties would had a little bit of understanding about each other.
That sentence, right there, is the entire point of the scene. It's not just that she doesn't understand, it's that HE doesn't understand that she doesn't understand. And partly that SHE doesn't understand that HE doesn't understand that SHE doesn't understand. It's not about her not knowing this shit but the fact that he's THAT inconsiderate about her feelings on the matter. He's never looked at it from her point of view before.
>Would you try to explain in detail what your fascination with cute anime girls is to a normalfag girl?
Beyond telling them that I have no idea beyond liking it as a kid? No. It's a hobby and as an adult I can understand that it's not something I can easily describe to someone in such a way that they would comprehend why I find it as awesome as I do. Something that differentiates me from the protagonist in the video.
>What if you already did but she keeps bothering you and no matter how many times you tell her she still can't grasp the basics of your so called moe. How'd you feel then?
Irrelevant to the discussion at hand as there doesn't seem to be any indication whatsoever that she pesters him about information of these things. Rather, it's like he's trying to drag her into his world, akin to showing your friends a video on Youtube that you find funny as shit and they don't get it. Except constantly.
>Irrelevant to the discussion at hand as there doesn't seem to be any indication whatsoever that she pesters him about information of these things.
But she insisted several times to tell her. He already said she wouldn't understand but she kept pushing him.
>akin to showing your friends a video on Youtube that you find funny as shit and they don't get it
Which would be relevant if the discussion ended at my friends not understanding the video but instead this is about a friend asking me what the video was about despite several failed attempts at explaining what I find amusing in them.
Yes Anon, I agree the MC is inconsiderate but to say she was justified for making that scandal is beyond stupid and was just used as drama bait in my opinion.
>But she insisted several times to tell her. He already said she wouldn't understand but she kept pushing him.
The only time it's insisted several times that he tell her is in said freakout. The only reason she asks in the first place is an attempt to understand her friend.
>Which would be relevant if the discussion ended at my friends not understanding the video but instead this is about a friend asking me what the video was about despite several failed attempts at explaining what I find amusing in them.
You missed the part where I said 'except constantly'. You aren't just showing your friends one video, it's more like showing them one every week or so, to the same reaction.
And, as previously mentioned, this is years of her putting up with this bullshit to try to be a good friend, without her ever saying 'boo' on how little she understands or how much it bothers her that she doesn't. She's bottled it all up and in that scene she finally just lets it all out. She's been taken for granted. Considering the boy in question, I highly doubt that he would have gotten what was the problem in any other way without such a drastic change in his friend's character. The freakout was justified.
Too lazy to read the autism above, but all I have to say is Hatoko a shit.
I mean its not like she went batshit crazy and the performance was impressive but it just felt so forced.
Not to mention shes actually being pretty selfish because she is apparently 'in love' with OMG JU-KUN :3 and so she freaks out when she cant understand him? How is that his fault, he never asked to be understood and they never dated, shes just a childhood friend, so what if she doesn't get that part of him, why does she have to understand?
She is just pissed that she knows she is going to lose Andoubowl because Tomoyo is perfect for him and there's nothing she can do about it except throw a fucking tantrum.
sore fucking loser and worst girl
>don't quote Nietzsche
For fucking truth. When wannabe epistemologists try to act like relativists and pretend they're smart because they read half the Wikipidea page on Nietzsche it is the obnoxious shit there is.
>lol u can't prove me wrong because nothing is true anyway
I want to punch them all in the fucking face.
