    Lol @ getting defensive. Either watch it or don't. Don't be the kind of turd asking if you should watch a show or not and seek out opinions just so you can shit on them. Like literally no one cares about what a person that hasn't watched a show thinks about said show. Also lol @ generic edgy shit, like give us some examples of what you consider fits that title bro? What "killing cute characters" shows do you watch on a regular basis allow you to even make such a statement? Please name these shows.

    I'm not asking for opinions just to shit on them. I stated that I was gonna pass on Abyss due to preconceived notions of what the show actually is at a base level. We have one person over here telling me that I'm wrong and clearly explaining why. Then we have you.

    Yeah just don't watch it bro, it's not that big of a deal, no one gives a fuck about your preconceived notions. The fact that anyone even wasted time to tell you anything is more than you deserved as is. My post before wasn't just directed at you so don't feel too special.

    Anyways these last few pages reminded me of that one dude that use to come in here and talk about how the only good manga was Blade of the immortal and nothing else from any genre compared and it was the only thing worth mentioning in the entire medium XD. Who the fuck was that guy lol, he use to trigger the shit out of dudes in here.

    I haven't bothered with Abyss because it sounds like another show where the pull is "look at these cute anime characters. Now watch them die.".

    I'm no snob, but it's too shallow for me from the jump. If it had something else good about it, then smacked me over the head with it a couple episodes in, I'd be down.

    Honestly, you sound like the one being shallow here. lol. The pull isn't about cute characters at all, and after watching the show, I feel it's very apparent the art style being cute is intentional for thematic reasons. There's a lot of themes about innocence, adolescence, and children being forced into the adult world before they're ready, which the cute art style lends itself very well since the main characters are children. If you enjoy drama, adventure, and fantasy type shows, Made in Abyss should not be passed up.

    I didn't say it's about cute characters. I said it sounds like it's about killing the cute characters, which would make it generic edgy shit. You say the main theme is about kids being pushed into a world they aren't ready for yet, and that's cool. I'm more interested in it now. But then you get people like analpalm over here that just get defensive without actually defending the show. I've only heard people talk about the deaths

    Well in my post I meant that the show wasn't about killing cute characters period. Death is a theme in the series since the world is constantly threatening, but we're being vague on purpose to avoid spoilers. There are tough to watch scenes, but they are done well and aren't shallow "LOL WATCH THESE CUTE CHARACTERS SUFFER". I don't think it's unreasonable for people to get frustrated when someone makes an assumption about the show based solely on the art style, despite the show being considered one of the best of the season, if not the best. The show has a lot to offer, and I'd recommend it for almost any drama/fantasy/adventure fan.

    Sucks cuz it will prob be another 10 years or so before that happens. Can't guarantee it's gonna look good either. You'd expect DBS to have a huge budget, but it looks like shit.

    The Black Clover MC has the worst voice I've heard in awhile. Usually I'd give a show like this a few episodes to introduce more characters but I simply cannot stand this guy. Every time he yells it's like the dying scream of a cat or something and he's always yelling so there's no breaks.

    Yeah that voice made Black Clover the quickest show I’ve dropped. Couldn’t stand it to the point I stopped watching in a few minutes.

    So I am trying to figure out how to get this light novel money. Thinking I am going to make the polar opposite of normal isekai story. An old evil wizard that is trying to become a lich but fucks up in his ritual/has it interrupted by the heroes and it transports him, his familiar, and the heroes to the regular world. Has there ever been a story like that? I know "The devil is a part timer" is close but that's not even remotely the tone I am going for.

    Same. Turned the show off after ~2 minutes.

    I would say, based on the genres that they drew from, that RE:Creators is also kind of close to what you're talking about. Otherwise the only things that are similar are Western cartoons. I would say that Gargoyles is similar and that there are more than a few shows who've dedicated an episode or two to a premise similar to the one you've described. All this is to say that the reverse isekai genre would seem to be much less close to being choked to death by volume of production than the normal isekai genre is.

    Most light novels that we get exposed to are actually refined web novels lucky enough to win the lottery and catch the attention of publishing companies in Japan. There is a huge amount of trashy web novels out there and the vast majority of them are shameless isekai stories with harems and overpowered protagonists in an MMORPG-like world.

    It's one of my favorite series due to how simple yet entertaining it is. Unfortunately, not all of the food science in it is accurate, or they're over-dramatized (e.g., honey won't break down proteins like in the show).

    Oh yeah I almost forgot, they remade Kino's Journey but it seems like it's actually different from the old show unless I am tripping. @crucades might actually like it if he is man enough.


    edit: oic they are doing it in a different order from the original.

    Yup it's a remake, good show. It's episodic like Kekkai Sensen so I am sure your short attention span having ass will love it. It's funny because it is so chill but then goes from zero to DIE in less than 6 seconds.

    the original was 13 episodes, its one of those stop and smell the roses type of anime, but then shit can pick up out of no where. i forgot all about the remake, will be picking that up.

    Man, I don't know how the Gintama anime can do the heavy hitting story arcs from Shogun Assasination to the Rakuyo Battle Arc and then go to filler arcs with no time frame hit up the last and sure to be hype silver soul arc. Ah well. The show has given me some solid entertainment ever since I joined SRK.

    It's from A Sister's All You Need.

    For anyone that does decide to watch it, you should know that the first minute or so isn't what the show is actually about. I think at least half the people that tried it dropped it before they even got to the real story lol.

    I've been feeling pretty meh about the show so far though.

    The show is pretty unbalanced. There are usually 1-2 scenes per episode where the girls get naked for no reason. The rest of the time they are either drinking, comparing themselves to their peers, or being depressed. It's from the same author as Haganai so don't expect much.

    Also, I think the show's message is clear: Genious light novel authors (like me) lead hard lives even with all this pussy in my face.

    Also I might drop Juni Taisen if it's just flashback > Death scene > rinse and repeat. People that have read the LN say that is basically the entire show. Fucking lame, especially with us being on the episode with monkey and the first seconds of the episode are again flashbacks, of her...
