The light novel made sense, and it was probably the only medium that it was decent on. There were a lot of subtext that didn’t translate well in anime, on top of that, a lot of that was in the japanese they used, which made it more confusing when we’re watching it subbed by volunteers. We have many teen life novels in english that would never translate well into anime, this one tried, and I guess all it could do was give us a very pretty package.
I wouldn’t call it shit. The adaption just wasn’t possible.
There are all kinds of people on 4chan. A lot of those are random floating scene kids and girls that whore for compliments (because they think an army of nerds would worship them), a lot of those are average people here and there getting laughs and doing normal things, and the rest are autistic.
If you want to find very otaku, 2chan is where you want to be.
