It was incredibly predictable. And i even managed to remain spoiler free while watching it. The predictability was kind of frustrating as a viewer to be honest, it felt fairly stock-standard for a drama series, just casting younger than usual characters and focusing it around music and life goals. Also some parts of it felt downright melodramatic.
>>133108205 To add to this, one of my bigger problems with the show was actually that the way they introduced Kaori made her to me incredibly unlikeable. She did not seem like a nice or good person with how she was introduced, her behavior was downright grating at times.
The way the show handled MCs trauma and the way his circle of 'friends' decided to attempt to cure it made me drop it at episode 4 or 5. It felt like watching people kicking a dog around wondering why it isn't happy that it's being kicked around.
>>133108495 Jeez, you are one of these shounen-retards, who can watch titles only coz of plot twists or cliffhangers? That reddit-tier hate coz of "deaths flags" is ridiculos, we all know how it will end and this is the main conception of this show.
>>133108720 >Jeez, you are one of these shounen-retards, who can watch titles only coz of plot twists or cliffhangers? That's kind of a retarded assumption since drama is one of my favourite genres. The problem i had with shigatsu's predictability isn't that it was predictable, but that it was predictable AND generic. Was it one of your first drama series' or something? The thing that i feel the show did the best was the concert scenes, they were good and had a great emotional impact. The rest of the show just didn't live up to that.
>>133108882 I didn't like the concert scenes at all. Many of them were ridiculously overlong, with far too many internal monologues and mentions of "WOW THIS IS SO AMAZING" instead of simply allowing the music to speak for itself. The internal monologues of the musicians were particularly annoying for me, since the high technical skill required for most of the stuff they were playing would have required intense focus from all of them.
No offensive, but you really look like a shounen, but not drama guy. Drama is about the path but not about the end of this path. If drama is trying to impress you only by its ending, people call it a forced drama. And plot of this show isn't really generic. Give me an example of non-generic anime drama in your opinion to make me understand the difference.
>>133107790 Although it was great regarding the sound part and good with the visual, the history leaned on the same type of plotline through the whole series. (Aciddent, trauma, get better, repeat the above). For a 24 episodes only the main character and the two girls got development despite having tons of characters that could be much more interesting then two of them (arima and tomboy).
>Great Ost >Good art >Okay characters >Repetitive and predictable plotline
>>133109304 >Drama is about the path but not about the end of this path This is bullshit. Nearly all dramas focus on building conflict up to a climax, followed by a conclusion which provides the audience with closure and catharsis. This is literally the point of drama.
>>133109304 >Love interest dying isn't generic >Drama is about the path not the ending >What is carthasis not the same anon but holy fuck you're a retard, it's cookie cutter drama plot to have MC fall for a girl who's terminally ill and then dealing with that + some other aspect which in this case is mucic also drama without carthasis is fucking pointless and the equivalent of blueballing
>>133109900 Do you not understand what carthasis is? You don't need a tragic or sad ending for carthasis, you don't need a happy ending for carthasis, you don't need any specific kind of ending to achieve a carthatic effect for the viewer/reader. Look to the conclusion of diebuster for a great example of carthasis in a series with a happy ending, and anime in general.
>>133109900 That's not what I suggested. I just said that the conclusion is one of the most important parts of a dramatic series.
As far as Shigatsu's ending, its as cliche as it gets and loses some impact for that. That said, I though the ending of the show was fine. It was well executed and was one of the few parts of the show where I didn't want to tear out my hair out of either boredom or frustration.
>>133110011 Man, if you think that its a drama about boy and girl with deadly disease you are only one retard here. Try Ko-n or smt easier for start. And you didnt name me examples of non-generic anime drama, so its a pointless conversation. BTW one more fact: your life is predictable. You will die and your consciousness will be erased from this world. But can you call it a reason to not love the life?
>>133110631 >It's not my native so i can afford some shitty language. It's also not my native language, but that isn't a reason for me to type like a retard. >Can you tell me about those five? No, i don't know what 5 anime you've already watched. And if you're asking for reccomendations, then consider the following: That's banned on /a/
>>133107790 Manga was better. Yes, I rather have the manga even though is a series with music as a main theme. Why? Adding fucking percussion during a piano performance made me sick. Butchering a classical piece with tacked on shit.
Also the anime treated the audience as retards, jesus fuck. I mean the manga already did it to a degree.
Manga - 8/10 Anime - 0/10 Those wondering, if I remember correctly, it was during Eri´s second performance or third.
>>133110722 >99% of dramas are about real life Dramas oftentimes take place in real-life or plausible settings, but the character interactions are always exaggerated or contrived in some way or another. That's because it's a story, not a real event.
>>133107790 Fairly bad. Many things wrong with it in general, but the main thing I'll remember it for is butchering the music with all sorts of shit, interruptions, idiots speaking over it etc. If they had any sense when picking the interpretations they might not have needed to shout over it all of the time. It was really irritating.
>>133110702 Stop being of dickhead grammar-nazi, i know that i am not really into english. All threads has plenty of off-top posts, check gatari thread for example. This not criminal to reccomend me some NON-GENERIC anime, coz it is connected with our discussion. But the point is that you can't.
>>133107790 Pretty decent show. Anyone that bitches about the plot being too predictable or done a million times before is a retard. >>133108205 pretty much has it spot on. The drama with the mother was particularly poorly handled.
>>133110887 >This not criminal to reccomend me some NON-GENERIC anime, coz it is connected with our discussion. Actually recommendations requests belong on /r/, why would i recommend you anime? Recommendation threads are banned from /a/, they're not allowed here. >But the point is that you can't. Why the fuck would i? I'm still not the anon you were talking to earlier
>>133110961 You are realy some kind of a spastic man. It's not a reccomendation thread, and my request was the result of discussion, its not a bannable situation. I asked for examples in order to understand why my taste is so shit and how i can improve it.
>>133111941 I was just calling you an idiot because your post is almost incomprehensibly dumb. People can easily watch and enjoy a show about characters that act nothing like how people would in real life, it happens all the time infact. Characters in fiction often act in ways that exist only to prolong the story without regards to if it makes sense in the setting, for the character of if it's even a sensible thing to do. It happens all the fucking time in fiction.
There are plenty of ways for a show to create empathy for a character without having viewers relate to a character's 'realistic behavior'
>>133112146 You can't be so deeply stupid, i think that you are just baiting me. People just CAN'T watch a film or read a book without modulation the world of this film or book in their brains as a real one. It's really how it works.
>>133112435 Except that it happens all the time, there's plenty of characters in anime that act nothing like real people and nothing like what you'd imagine a real person to be like even in the given circumstance. It's fiction.
>>133112511 You are still missing the point. >characters in anime that act nothing like real people and nothing like what you'd imagine a real person to be like even in the given circumstance. Yes, and that circumstance can be not possible to exist in a real life. But people assume that it CAN be happen one way or another, this freakin univers or a parallel one. All the time. Always.
