It was years ago since I watched it but I remember my main gripe with it being that the show showers you with way too much tragedy. Basically so much terrible shit happens to everyone that at some point the main theme of the story - the girl losing her self and becoming a weapon - becomes just trivial in comparison, I don't wanna spoil anything but it's just that ridiculous.
Does anyone want to explain why people didn't like the anime ending? It's been awhile since I've saw it, but I remember it being near enough the same as the manga except a little difference.
>>13450023 She like symbolically takes all the souls and history of mankind with her into outer space as if to say that we, humanity existed. That's how I see it. Though it's a shame that the OVA and live action movie killed the series for many people. I still have nightmares of 'em.
>>13450200 At least it's in a good way. Honestly, I've never seen another manga/anime evoke such emotion from its readers/viewers.
>>13455571 >virus Didn't you pay attention to what was going on? The planet was dying, and the earthquakes and the like were a part of that. Everyone knew they were going to die. They just didn't want to admit it.
>>13456076 But Farscape, Devilman, Toward the Terra and a bunch of other stuff is?
>>13457623 That sounds like bullshit. All of humanity is going to die, so might as well put them out of their misery? No, fuck that noise. There's always hope, even if you have to build second earth (Blue Gender) or abandon the planet (Muv-Luv, Alternative 5 plan)
>>13457646 Humanity itself gives up in the setting, anon. They decided to fight until the bitter end. They didn't try to save themselves, they were too busy denying everything and killing each other. Chise didn't have the power nor the interest to save mankind. She only cared about Shuji.
>>13457841 The setting does offers you that, but at the same time shows you that people will follow their leaders, even if they know it's pointless to do so. Another thing is that there wasn't any hope. The planet was dying, period. There was nothing that could be done about it.
>>13457646 Except Saikano has meaning and reason for everything while those other stuff don't. They're pleb shit in comparison. And, Muv-Luv? Please leave.
This guy >>13457657 understands, so it's like you haven't even read the manga or watched the anime. Because you'd come to the same conclusion.
>>13457614 They mention wars in other countries before the Sapporo bombing, and it's also implied. Humanity went to war with itself and instead of healing the planet, they just built new weapons (Chise being one of them) which pushed the planet further to its death.
Also, they mention the SDF being "deployed overseas" so I presume that WW3 or random wars started and everyone just went insane and invaded everything around them. Or, the entire planet invaded Japan (Russia, France and USA only seen) because they made Chise/the Ultimate weapon. Really, it's left to your imagination because that's not the focus of the plot or story.
>>13457841 >Humanity isn't a collective. you seem to think that in desperate times people would do the right thing, some people may but they often get burshed aside while those in power stay on their destructuive course until they realise it's too late
>>13465880 I watched the OVA. It's boring and focus on a "previous generation" Ultimate Weapon. Who, somehow, was in love with that military guy (Fuyumi's husband) It's a really stupid addition that doesn't really adds anything of value to the overall story.
>>13472011 Oh, those? Already read 'em. LSK sucked and wasn't written by the author, I think. There's like a bazillion other peoples names slapped on it. Then again, as it itself states its not meant to be liked, just listened to. Meh.
Anyhow, LSK is part of the Gaiden, too, FYI. It's essentially a bunch of short stories like Neo Devilman.
>>13474369 generally I hate those kind of story because it's depressing, the thing is they're meant to be, LSK tried to show the senselessness of it all and on that front I think it works, I mean sure there are plenty of other works that present this much better than LSK but it works for me.
>>13474369 Manga updates list Love Story, Killed under Shin Takahashi (Saikano's original author) I guess they got it wrong.
This is the "gaiden" I mentioned: Saishuu Heiki Kanojo Gaiden - Sekai no Hate ni wa Kimi to Futari de - Which is a collection of short stories, but only one chapter was ever translated. It is listed under Shin too.
>>13474419 Of course he's listed on it. It's like slapping Go Nagai on Neo Devilman (even though he did write one or two of them). At most, he probably just gave them guidance on it unless I'm just talking out of my ass. Though we'd be able to confirm if credits were translated which I doubt.
