>/a/ now hates Plastic memories forever because of the dramatic episode
You should have seen something coming though /a/. They never said what would happen if they never retrieve them, but the way they chase the androids should have told you to be prepared for something. I'm not quite understanding the hate. I guess most of you were expecting some slice of life. The rules they had for keeping the androids under control meant it was serious business. It had a serious undertone from the beginning. It's just revealing itself now.
Maybe /a/ let it's guard down because of the cute android and it had some funny bits in it. The MC was just an outside looking in that's all. It was always going to be serious.
Oh well I guess my post won't really do much to change people's perspective. I wasn't even going to watch the Anime in the first place because the premise didn't seem interesting. I'm glad I did because I like watching it each week.
I picked it up after episode 5, since my friend thought it went Samurai Flamenco because of a few threads, which it sadly did not. So, my perspective is a little bit different.
Regardless, I don't really find it that amazing. Regardless of that, I'm still interested in where it goes from here. I really just want more MC and Rei interactions though.
Because no one would ever sell death machines to the general public like that. If they go berserk after their memory is used up then they should have been designed to break if they try and exert a certain amount of force on their body by doing something superhuman. That shit is just plain retarded.
>/a/ now hates Plastic memories forever because episode 5 had godawful writing
Want to know more about Five?
Even if they were to sell them, why would you wait until the last day/week to retrieve them? Why not retreive them when they have like two or three months left. Oh right, otherwise thos should wouldn't have any suspense etc.
I thought people hates it because episode 3, or whatever the slice of life comedy episode was. At least episode 5 fit the same dramatic tone the series piloted with, even if it exposed a dozen logical fallacies with the world building
I personally like it, but I've found that one of the main reasons people don't like it is because "it doesn't know what it wants to be", which is bullshit. Just because something is a drama but has some comic relief scenes doesn't mean they "don't know what to do with it". It just means that there are some comedic moments along the way to accent the drama. The vice versa is also the case - just because the show is generally comedic and lighthearted doesn't mean there can't be drama in it. Anyone who thinks otherwise or thinks that a show can't show some tonal variation from episode to episode is a complete fucking moron and needs to read more and watch more film.
Other than that, a lot of people don't like the plot devices, especially the whole "androids can only like 84,000 hours" thing. A lot of other things don't make sense either, and I can understand why some anon's are upset.I assume they'll expand on things more later, however some people are impatient and want things spelled out to them in the first few episodes, and others hate lengthy exposition and spoonfeeding.
But all in all, it's not as though "/a/" hates Plastic Memories, it's just that opinion is very divided and there's little discussion of the show's good points because the perceived flaws (for now) are incredibly glaring, which attracts lots of shitposters (see: Death Parade threads from last season)
I don't care if it was a dramatic episode, I care if it was a fucking awfully written dramatic episode and this takes the cake for worst of the season by far
Will watching the episode magically implant the knowledge of your thoughts, views, values, and impressions into me?
What are you talking about, that stupid episode only make me like the show more. Now I know that it's going to stay ridiculous like this all the way to the end, and the trainwreck is going to be glorious.
>I guess most of you were expecting some slice of life.
Yeah, sure, everyone expected that when the first episode was almost completely drama.
Why do you still insist on making these false accusations?
/a/ hated it because it went full fucking retarded with how characters act, not because it turned to drama. Everyone called it being drama from the day PV was released.
Ah fuck. I just managed to forget about the last episode and especially the threads. Now I'm thinking about that autist that keeps ban evading and tells people that SoLfags got BTFO.
>Now I'm thinking about that autist that keeps ban evading and tells people that SoLfags got BTFO.
He is truly pathetic. He uses euphemism and terms that sound like something Chris-chan would come up with.
This show NEEDS Drama sadness Ano Hana type melodrama to hit.
She has whatever days it is to live and nothing seems to happening on that side yet.
I wanted some serious tears every episode show but I guess I expected too much from Dogakobo.
I don't know why people keep thinking this is like Psycho Pass. It's honestly more like Bladerunner except the androids go berserk instead of stop functioning past their expiration date.
I started watching it hoping it will be Blade Runner. Well its is Blade Runner with little girls and brainless MC.
Why androids are normal thing but nobody in public knows they are going berserker?
Why androids obey/love their masters if they have free will?
Why androids have no build in timer to turn them off?
Why human rights apply to them?
We all knew there would be drama.
Just not sudden Dominator, Blade Runner type of drama.
The episode was really bad, but I still have been enjoying the series as a whole.
Especially sweet, sweet Isla.
This was my first thought, too. What kind of company would allow even a single person the risk of getting physically injured by mass-producing and selling androids that go berserk after their lifespan, banking on the fact that retrievers will absolutely be able to recall every one before it's too late? Shit's dumb.
But I'll still probably watch the whole just to see how everything ends.
Mostly Isla, honestly.
With a slight interest in how the plot goes.
Androids aren't human, human is a creature belonging to the homo sapiens species. They aren't persons either, because while they have reason, they lack free will. A better question is how ethical is it to build sentient beings and deprive them of free will. I think it's pretty evil, but then again, what is "free will" after all? If you are created in a way that acting a specific way will make you happy, then you will do it out of free will.
I hate AI.
Why are giftias considered people if they 100% go berserk after their expiration date?
Why aren't giftias equipped with failsafes to protect humans?
If giftias are considered people why are they sold to owners in the first place? Isn't that slavery?
Not him, but I also like the show.
You have to be brain dead to expect much.
I was around long enough to watch Mahoromatic on sub release, even then, a decade ago the "android's clock ticking down to 0" was considered forced drama.
I approached this show with curiosity about how, after all those years, they will take on those tropes. I think it is still too early to say, but if they don't leave crap hanging like Mahoromatic did, they will have already made a better show.
At least, Isla doesn't use her nights to go pew pew lazors on an alien nemezis. One idiocy out.
That's a bad comparison.
There are two main reasons tobacco is not banned entirely today. First one is that it's a part of human cultural heritage and has been consumed for thousands of years (like alcohol). The second one is that even though a lot of people do end up getting cancer, the money they put into the budget from buying tobacco (which is heavily taxed) dwarfs the amount of money it takes for the healthcare services to care for those people.
Giftia in their current form would never have been allowed to enter public use in the first place, so there would be no comparable conditions. Or if they were, they would certainly put in some safety mechanisms, or have them retrieved way earlier to avoid situations like these.
is not hard to try to understand why people dont like this change they basically copy non non biyori renge
and now she is in a show were shit is going down
not a bit fair for renge chon fans
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.
Yeah, as it turns out, humans are not cold, emotionless robots who always do the optimal thing but instead sometimes even indulge in things they know are not good for them because they like them and because they've been doing them forever.
Did I imply I should be missed? I was just commenting about the show to clarify the OP's misunderstanding. I don't hate it nor did I have high expectations for it. I gave it a few episodes to see if it was good despite people saying it was going to get bad later, and they were ultimately right.
Episode 3 was retarded, this episode just made it worse
Is fine to have drama I am not complaining about that, I started watching after seeing the PV and watch it in the hopes of actual drama not a 180 turn from dumb moeshit shenanigans to a fucking edgy episode. It could have been handled better but it didn't
I for one am glad the deluded iyashikeifags got BTFO, now the threads will be even better. And if they continue to shitpost despite dropping the show the based janitors will get rid of them.
>It was always going to be serious
Was it always going to be crap? Because that's what this last ep was, complete irredeemable stupid crap. Low-grade disgusting forced drama that's what it is.
The last drop that made me rage quit was the flashback scene where the tsundere girl is discovered along with her robot father at a church or whatnot. A fucking church, you can't get more cliche and lazy with your writing.
Crap and disappointment, doga kobo should have just stuck to cute girls and SoLs.
>they basically copy non non biyori renge
>Ren-chon is the first ever expressionless anime girl
they had a fucking dominator
I don't understand how you can watch episode 4 and not realize episode 5 is going to be a moodshift
This show didn't know wtf its genre was. The first eps where poor attempts at Laurel & Hardy style slapstick.
>mfw an anon told me to accept that because the story takes place in a setting with more advanced tech
And how the fuck did he catch up to people that were in fucking cars?
To make things worse, tsukasa and isla were awake for a minimum of 24 hours. There's no way the kid would try to look for that long without giving up/passing out from exhaustion.
>it's your fault my leg got hurt
>didn't take any action until the killer robot broke her leg and tried to kill her
What the fuck was she going to do differently? How is shooting a robot with a taser that formats its hard drive any different than shooting it with machine guns?
I'd get it if they were a heartless corporation who wanted to reuse the expensive frame and didn't care if people got hurt because they had to do things the hard way, but they're portrayed as the good guys.
Why do people like this shit? I dropped it at episode one for pretty obvious reasons. It seems that most people think that this "mature" concept for a drama gives it an excuse to be shallow in almost every aspect of the show. I can understand watching melodrama for pleasure but you watch this show without unironic lenses, then I feel terrible for you.
>because of the dramatic episod
Or it could be that a story that was advertised as a character driven romantic drama suddenly turned into a poor blade runner/pyscho pass hybrid that has more plot holes than any anime in recent history.
But sure, just keep assuming that not everyone who likes eating shit and hyping up the next "epic trainwreck to watch with /a/" just doesn't like drama in any form.
