That is the most hilariously hypocritical statement I've ever seen regarding Mondaiji.

Well for instance the main Character is Cool,Badass and not a complete wimp like all the animes main characters these days.


Can you guys please stop?

I definitely know more "badass/cool" characters than "wimpy/pathetic" characters this year, easily. In general, too. To everyone making this extremely silly statement; please stop making a fool of yourself. Wimpy main characters definitely don't form the majority in the anime industry.


preach on.

One dimensional characters are still one dimensional, I can't find entertainment in that for extended periods of time.

There's nothing worse than shallow responses, especially with the people that you "agree" with.

I can sum my dislike so far as simply not caring enough about the world these three kids have been thrown into or about the "games" they go through. Our protagonists have no personal stake in the world which they have arrived in and have little to no motivation besides being "bored". It doesn't help they're already talented, powerful people and don't have to struggle much.

How do you relate to someone like that?

It's like someone hired three mercenaries, but have the show focus mostly on the "game show" mechanics and local politics rather than develop the leads or make me care about the "no names".

You only watch anime to be-able to relate to the characters?

For me personally I really like Izayoi. He is not only a badass, but a confident badass at that. Much more refreshing than the stuttering, drooling idiot we normally get for male leads who get smacked around by all the girls and the bad guys until the last 30 secs of the last episode where they finally "power-up" and or gain some balls.

Granted I don't want to see him flawlessly winning every battle with his pinky toe, but right now I'm enjoying his take charge attitude.

Again, one of THOSE threads.

Why does people like this? Because people have different tastes. It's as simple as that. Not everyone wants to watch anime Shakespeare.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I'm 4 episodes into this and it doesn't look like a good anime at all. The Characters are stereotyped, the powers are random and the battles are lame. If this had like 7.40 id would be normal, but 7.90? I'd like to hear what people find in this, because I really see nothing good about this except for the gags and the Chara Design.

Well where do i start? First of all this anime is not suited for people who just, Oh fuck that (you) try to learn the story and watch the background, unless you don't know any of the meanings behind the story then i have nothing to say.

From your perspective...I would like to know the rating system you gave, also seems that you're a senpai from this site so lets be friends.

This thread is really annoying. all animes have some kind of cliche in them, even the good ones (especially the good ones). in fact the same could be said for everything in society. So to judge something based of stereotypes is stupid and doesn't get us anywhere.

Furthermore... WHO THE FUCK CARES! IT'S A SHOW! ENJOY THE HARD WORK THESE ARTISTS PUT INTO MAKING IT!!!!

Izayoi. That is all. Don't really care about anything else or "relating" to the characters. Just want a taste of some op badassery every once in a while. Though there's not really much of that either.

That's the entire selling point of this show. It's so cliche that it's not something you should count against it, that should of been obvious from day one. I know I like it because they stereotype these characters so faithfully without having overexpose them it's not sickening. Definitely not the best this season but a nice watch. Especially if you are looking for a series with very vivid and detailed fantasy environment.

Indeed. This anime is just fun to watch. Nothing too special, but definitely enjoyable.

This show has a fun-factor to it as well as a captivating world. The characters are also very strong-willed and irresistible. That's the best I can describe it.

By the time I finish an episode (which feels like 5 seconds) I feel better after it. I think that is always a sign of a good show.

Decent protagonist, and truth be told, i'd rather have an arrogant jerk who treats characters like shit than one who gets treated like shit, is useless, and can't do shit about it (i.e Yukiteru and Shinji), granted most main characters aren't like that and at some point become awesome, but those few dorks remain dorks for the rest of their life and it doesn't please me in the least.

so for the art and the protagonist.

^I can't read all of that. But it seems like you make a good point.

Anyway, I watched this anime because I was bored. I like the whole "game" premise and the setting. On the other hand, I'm not into the fanservice element of it - but at least it doesn't happen every other minute. The 10 episode limit does seem short and I wish they would give some background on the characters, since it seems hella rushed.

The biggest reason I like this series is the main male mc. I love his gift and his cocky attitude.

At least the male mc isn't this:
"Cheer up, you’re never alone! There is probably at least 1 bug in your room."

Same here. The series became enjoyable to me mainly because of the MC (and the bunny girl).

And to answer your question OP, most people rate series based on their enjoyment level. A lot of people enjoyed the series, thus the rating. Sure, maybe it was nothing special, but for most of us it was enjoyable.

I really liked this series, the fighting scenes were cool but it's score should not be nowhere near 7.80 and 8.10 is really too much for this.

What's AotS? Anime of the Season? If so, back at you, please stop having shit taste, Chihayafuru is a better anime than this and you know that.

Sorry, but I have to say, I had less problem with the series in the first 3 episodes, but more to come later on, so, it got worse later on

Oh really? A lot of people dislike the first half more because of the monster-of-the-week feel to it, personally I enjoyed the gift game with Pest, mostly because of the fight scenes which the first part lacked.

Better question why don't you like it?

For me, I would say, a decent plot not too complicated or too simple and no overplayed drama along with great characters and comedy.
If you look past Izayoi's combat ability(which includes the tactical and intellectual sides btw) he's a strong,independent character with a edge to be mischievous,cocky and a little tsundere.Then Asuka an ojou-sama character who is actually noble(kind of rare in anime) along with being responsible and caring.Compared to the rest You's character is bit bland but her passive apathetic attitude towards everything is fun to watch.Last there is Kurousagi a humble,earnest character whose very loyal and dedicated to her friends despite being very capable and strong when necessary.

I don't believe it's fair to compare this to Chihayafuru since it's two completely different genres.

I like Mondaiji and Chihayafuru, is there something wrong with liking completely different genres of anime equally?

No, but it's hard to accept that there are immature people like you frankly giving anime a bad name in general calling people who actually want good art, good story and such "shit", despite liking under aged moe girls having homosexual relationships with each other. Logic. The fact you have a list dedicated to underaged girls is disturbing, but hey. No judging here. Just saying grow up, your age is showing. People have different opinions, anyone agrees with that, but you're very elitist by saying another persons taste is bad when yours is well... evident.

When did he/she even say genres is an issue here? They didn't. He/She's saying one is superior than the other (haven't seen Chihayafuru, but have heard it's great).

Good story? Thats subjective. If anything, you're the immature one who states his opinion as facts and believes his tastes to be better, not to mention your use of buzzwords.

I only called your taste bad because you where acting l;ike a asshole in your first post.
In case you don't get it, I would not have done that if you hadn't somehow implied my 'taste' in ruining the industry, which is even more idiotic.

You and morons like draconismarch are really the ones ruining the anime communities with your bullshit "hurdurr taste can be objective" bullcrap.

I wouldn't say that this anime is "AotS" but it's still good anime exept it's too short and it feels like it's only introduction/Begining to the anime.
