I finally finished this anime, and it was……meh. Every time an anime that know how to manipulate tone comes out it ALWAYS gain some level notoriety. This doesn’t always mean it will that it will end up being a good show, it just means it’s really good at manipulated you.
The problem with these finds of show and me is that I don’t react to emotional empathy. You might say, “Your cold hearted” I do feel, I just don’t react to other people emotions (it’s honest to god problem in my life).
Y-o circumstances can make me cry…which is why this show kind of angered me with its ending. It was too tidy and too happy!
You could have a too ending for this show:
- Emma stayed back to become a mother.
- Have Emma leave and come back 2 years later.
By having her just ‘leave’ you kind of have no conclusion to your show. Did they live? How did they find food? Won’t they be hunted down?
You could of even made Emma mother of the wild children. There is so many possibilities!
If we are going to be grim, all of them kids life behind are going to die because you destroyed there shelter, food and the educational equipment.
Now let’s discuss the dumbest part of this ending:
- Mother hears a song as a child
- Mother get pregnant
- Son hears song as a fetus
- Meets son again
- How did he hear a song that she heard as a child???? The show never establish that this was a song she humbled a lot (I don’t remember her doing it).
- How did he know that was his mum? Or was I meant to take it like how everyone ells calls her mum.
- How can you say she cares about the kids and say, “I need his brain.”?
This entire saturation could have been easily solved by just say:
- She instinctively recognised him (mothers intuition).
- Have her son burn alive in front of her.
He didn’t need to be there in the end, in fact it would have been way more impact if he wasn’t there. This would have been Emma’s last shot of escaping the despair, along with giving a good reason for mother to reflect on how she feels towards the children.
The show too many points where it over explained what was going on, too the point were I felt that the show was getting a little pretentious. I think the moment the show though me out of its world was when they had a 4 year old explain to Emma what he understood about the saturation and why they needed to stay behind in order to save the group.
O_O THAT IS ONE MATURE 4 YEAR OLD!
I really don’y understand why episode titles look so quiptic (it’s just the date).
I really don’t get why this show made such simple things so hard to understand yet, on the other coin the would simply blow over the more complex logistics of how everything functions.
WHY MENTION GRANDMA! She isn’t relevant to the story. You could have had assistant to mother just send a letter, when the time came this lady would walk out of the shadows and just stay, “We don’t like how your melding with a farm that creates high quality goods” Then get her to piece the flower into the woman’s stomach.
By getting someone ells to do you take away from the depravity of the situation.
I don’t think that Norman is dead, I think he will probably be used as stud (how ells are they going to make babies). That sense that was handled really well, it created tension without straight up telling me what was going on….I just wish the rest of the show was like that.
Final thoughts: It’s not a bad show, it could do with being a little less wordy (it’s anime, not a book).
This shows plot-hole is so big you drive a car though it. THERE IS NO REASON FOR THE PILOTS TO HAVE THE BODIES OF YOUNG GIRLS!
I think what made me snap was episode 3, for writing too a nose dive in this episode due to *gulp* them trying to create drama….and failing amazingly. You can’t have people be perfectly OK with her walking around the base and even leaving into civilian location yet, get super angry when she eats food with them. You undermine the severity of the saturation along side making people just look like monsters.
Episode 2 was so slow that I fell asleep, when I woke up nothing had happened.
I can watch a bad show if the writing is insane, but I can’t watch a bad show that puts me to sleep.
Finally got to watch more of this show….and I feel conflicted.
Positive: I love the sections where you get to see the world from the cat’s view.
Negative: I can’t believe on any conceivable level that our main male lead is a writer.
“I haven’t used names in such a long time” . . . How do you write a book where no one is identified by name? I guess you could identify them by traits.
The neko detective despised the tall human getting in his way, for his long legs couldn’t compare to the kitties pouncing prowess.
I just can’t believe that a man who has no understand of people or how interaction works could conceivably write a story. This is a guy who is so closed to the world that he doesn’t know what a pet collar is! He didn’t even know that he lives next to a dog.
The dog was there before his parents died, so there is no excuse for him not knowing that.
My only guess to his mental state is that his parents were enabling this isolated behaviour, otherwise they would have forced him outside more (this guy doesn’t even go in the garden).
Here is something that bugged me:
“What a freak, he’s reading a book in a class room” yet no one bats an eye when he brings a book with him during PE (physical education).
I’m also not a fan of the way the anime transition from the human view to the cat view (it feels like I’m having to watch the same episode twice).
The dude comes-off like he is incapable of taking care of himself, and that ignoring his mistrust of people. When was the last time he took a bath, did laundry or clean anything in the house.
Simple tasks can be made more fun with a cat in the house.
I’m very much in a love hate relationship with this anime.
I’m not going lie, I didn’t want to watch anymore after that first saccharin episode. I don’t like shows that pretend to have a plot in order to create fake tension at the end (it’s very common in moe shows).
The first 2 episode felt unfocused and forgettable (I can’ even remember what happened in them episodes).
By episode 3 I was laughing, Which I would have thought impossible with how the first 2 went. It found the balance between trying to be cute while still playing with the idea of being a hero. I should’t be surprised by the idea of these adventures going on a quest, but after saving 5 cats I was a little interested to see where they were going with this.
“We have gotten really good at saving cats.”
For a show that really doesn’t have to have have structure or development, it’s doing averagely ok for it’s genre type.
It’s literally sugar for the brain (love it as junk food).
T-o I feel like a div, I have only just now figured out what the numbers mean. I just kept look at the titles of each episode with a confused look on my face: 12/10/45, 13/10/45, 18/10/45, 29/10/45, 30/10/45, 31/10/45 (Date- month – year).
This anime is about a bunch of kids in a demon farm.
I don’t know what to think of this show. It looks beautiful and all of the sounds are perfectly timed….but, it just doesn’t do what it says on the tin.
I came into this wanting physiological horror, which I think it’s trying to give me. The problem is that its not shocking me or scaring me. I feel nothing for these characters (outside of me not wanting to see children killed).
I want to know how the mothers are making babies?
Where do they get there food from?
Whats with the flowers?
When it did try to shock me I felt annoyance, for at that moment a smart character was hit with stupid stick.
“He’s the bad guy, he wants to keep a good percentage of the live stock.”
I don’t really know how this is going to end.
This anime is about girls magically jumping into anime/manga to save them from being forgotten.
Have you ever watch anime that has made so many dumb choice that you can’t fathom how it go created? That’s this show.
I don’t know who this anime was made for.
There are sections where I can go, “someone in there 20’s might get the joke” and then, “maybe someone who is 25?” to be followed by, “even I’m to young for that joke.”
When an episode tries to be action paced the animation becomes extremely stilted, along with the line work/shading looking nonsensically messy.
The episodes are passable, just along as they stick to simple story construction: bad guy + defeat = victory.
The worst episode that I have seen is episode 7, for this one episode failed to do ANYTHING correct.
- The setting was all over the place.
- Why were they in a game to begin with? Why the nes?
- Tacking on the bad guy at the end doesn’t solve the pothole!!!!
WHY WERE THEY THERE!
Good thing I’m watching this with DB (you need to be able to have a good laugh when watching this).
I’m a little confused by this anime.
He has sex with a random girl, ok.
He has the hots for his teacher, ok.
How old is the teacher?………. I don’t know????????
*I’m sure she would be fired for secretly meeting on the roof and for have an inappropriate relationship with a student.*
The reason why I asked about her age is because she went with her mother to see who her new dad was going to be????? The school girl I understand, but a grown woman; is she still living at home?
Later in the episode: SHE LIVES WITH HER MUM! You’re a grown ass woman, get your own home! You’re a teacher, surly you make enough to get a flat somewhere.
I’m dropping this like stone, no way do I want to watch a grown woman groom a school boy.
This anime is about magical girls who fight terrorist….or monsters, maybe? The show didn’t really make it that clear.
Here is my problem with this anime so far: Them being magical girls in the story is a little irrelevant, there is no real reason for young girls to become them or really want to be one.
It’s in fact a little strange to see a little girl say she wants to be one? In the context of another magical girl show that would be fine…. but here, it’s like having a 5 year old tell you they want to be in the army (I would be a little concerned). Magical girls are established to be put in life threatening situation (lava monster) and fight terrorists.
Plus in this context why are there only magical ‘girls’???? Is it so we can see there boobs?
There’s blood, over the top bad guys, attempted shock and out of place eyeballs (they look so strange).
This show might struggle to hold my attention.
This anime is about planes…..I think.
The animation is bland, the character designs are bland and are main lead is bland. Here are some notes I took while watching.
Let me get this right anime, are you telling me that he is surprised that a military plane is going to military location? Pluss your telling me that a military plane landed on the water and no military bases were tracking that plane? Or am I meant to believe that are main lead truly didn’t think anyone would come to help??????
It just seems odd to see a civilian jump out of his sub/boat onto a jet.
I have big question (15 minutes in), HOW DID YOU FIND HIM! “I followed him” no you didn’t, you where at home making dinner, that’s why you texted him.
“I have to keep you locked in my house, and treat you like a child, because I’m lonely.” *paraphrasing* Was that really meant to come off that creepy, it sounds like the premise of a psychological thriller.
Think I have figured out what is wrong with this anime: It can’t transition. Whoever is writing this doesn’t know how to make one scene flow into the next one. A lot of the time nonsense has to occurred just so the plot can move, which is problematic when your trying to keep a particular tone.
My favourite moment in this episode is a piano playing in the background:
Anime: “Are you feeling anything”
Me: “no, it just feels awkwardly funny”
*It goes on for way too long.*
“I’m going to tell you all my plans and show you are secret equipment.” WHY?! Because he stood by your fence? Your telling me those two are the first to walk there? He found it using his normal phone location app.
“It had a ugly crash” Yes that ugly crash that landed it perfectly on the water.
I have one big problem with this anime: If humans can’t the G force to keep up with the other plane, Why have a human in the plane at all? Just make an AI that represents the Jet, That way you keep his obsession with planes more focused.
I want to see the plane, not the girl.
Can I state for the record that I love the timing of that opening song.
We at a funeral, everyone is very sad.
^-^ Happy music time; Doop pa dooby doody!!!
This anime is about the writer and his cat. It’s kind of like dog and scissors, but without the violence.
I know that anime is telling me that he is a good writer, but is he? Taking one month to write one chapter? Not wanting reference material? Only caring about the ending and not the way/how it’s written? He kind of comes off a little useless, how the hell does this guy have an agent…or is he truly that close to his publishing house. Give me a feel anime, is he a mega popular writer or your everyday writer (you can’t treat them the same).
I don’t like people, but I understand people need to do there jobs. How the hell has he been advertising his books, getting them checked or even pitched in the first place if he hates people that much.
Plus wouldn’t a publisher care more about how many pagers are done in the current manuscript over how many chapters there are? They only care about the complete manuscript, why would they care so much about this one guys ability to write 20 page in a 300-400 page book in one month? “You know what will happen if he doesn’t hit his deadline” fire his ass!
When I was doing my art course are tutor told us 3 important truths you should always remember:
It’s very easy to forget to these things when your are focused on a project (even if you need to set alarm clocks for it, DO IT!).
One day, ONE DAY! You got sick from exhaustion, from one day. Y-o How does this guy have a writing job? How could he be a popular writer and only now face this basic mistake (not pacing yourself).
Plus why would you give your publisher an idea for a book that you have no idea how to write????
Final thoughts: I love the cat, but hate the writer.
If it was his was set up as his first book I would have been OK with him, but telling me he is popular and written before makes his mistakes nothing more than frustrating.
T-o Sorry guys, love the technical side of writing too much (even if I’m not disciplined enough to write myself).
