Episode 14 of the most polarizing anime of the Year was quite a treat.

Basically we have a literal Waifu war between Zero Two and Ichigo and the fans absolutely ate it up!

Like it or hate it...this series is super popular and being talked about all over the place due to the waifu war.

Maybe you'll think this is cancer or the reason why Anime is trash or whatever...but you can't deny it's exciting and REALLY makes you want to see what happens next.

Oh and...

waifu wars are instant publicity and advertisement and as they say there is no bad publicity

Are you serious about this ? I mean I droped the garbage show after episode 1 so I have no idea what's going on the only one I see talking about this is you who constantly makes threads about this.

It's how you make a sales of anime figures even more higher.

almost all places with a huge number of anime fans (ex. reddit, illegal streaming sites like kissanime, 4chan /a/, twitter, facebook, etc) are talking about this episode of Darling in the FranXX you are missing out

I don't really care about it sure it's fun but if they keep on doing after a while it will get repetitive.

Seeing the Animes you have as your favourites I can see y u did that (all mainstream)..

But it gets really good afterwards (particularly episode 4 and episode 13 is even brilliant)..

i was afraid i'm missing a good anime but after reading some spoilers
i'm glad i didn't watch darling in the cuck

just a generic waifu war with a clear winner from the start
and a childhood friend who exist only to create forced drama and suffer from an unrequited love

truly pathetic

I'm here to be brutally honest...

>Darling in the Franxx is a GREAT show...it's fun and YES, I love the drama!

>Zero Two is STILL Best Girl...that hasn't changed.

>I want to see Ichigo fight to the bitter end...she's probably gonna lose, but never give up!

>This is a really fun waifu war and reactions of both camps are wildly entertaining

>Thank you Trigger for once again living up to your name and saving anime!

Ohhhh!

I'm actually surprised you're going for Ichigo.

Honestly, I can't decide.

I was going all out for Zero Two up until episode 14....what Ichigo did was something I viewed not only as justifiable, but it made me want to root for her!

Ugh...this waifu war is gonna be the toughest decision ever.

I am just not into mecha epecially not ones where they pilot the mechs like that maybe I am just not long enough into this genre to understand the "greatness" of stuff like that

It's definitely the way to go make me stay away from the anime and its fanbase. Popularity does not always equal quality or even revenue, especially if it also spawned toxic drama and fanbase.

Oh. But oh well, it can't be really help that anime communities are being shitty when it comes to waifu wars. Look what happened during Nisekoi days.

Ehh. . . I didn't have any interest to the show. . . I just watched the newest episode for laughs since I know how A1 picture is with their original anime. . . I don't get excited at all nor care what happens next

Well i don't care about waifu war and shit like that(just kidding). The thing that I am most concerned about is that I see a death flag on hiro or 02 in near future.

ikr? lol

This kind of things make ppl go nuts. Regarding it's in a good or bad way, it still bumped the popularity lol

Though I don't plan to watch this, it's pretty entertaining seeing all the arguments.

Darling in the Franxx proves that anime community likes waifu shows with shitty writing , shitty plot, and shitty characters. (Both Ichigo and 02 are trash tier)
Easily one of the worst popular show this / last season.
It got way more attention than it deserves with shitty writing/ plot/ characters like that...
Guess A1 and Trigger tag is to thank for how much attention this show gets.
Reminds me when I watch Owari no Saraph, which got way more attention than it deserves cuz it's Wit Studio, yet the plot/ characters are garbage tier too.

Watching Franxx is like watching Twilight, which almost all the characters have trash tier intelligence, and are made for drama, and drama alone. No-one asks for cliche soup opera in this show.

In fact, it's like this show has no substance to talk about beyond character drama because so far the plot and antagonist are so weak. Klax is so unmemorable and insignificant that none of them stand out like Eva's angels, and only serves as a plot device just to reinforce the drama and nothing else. Same can be said to all the mechas in this show. Political issue is mildly discussed cuz our main casts have the mental age of 8 years old or younger.
There're more plot holes and plot convenience than Guilty Crown ever wants to achieve.

Reminds me when Ancient Magus Bride wins best drama on crunchyroll , yet Rakugo is performing 100 times better than AMB in terms of drama / plot / characters.

Come to think of it, Sword Art Online becomes insanely popular too after Asuna becomes waifu. It all make sense now why SAO is loved. Same reason why people like Darling in the Franx.

Haha, you're talking as if Franxx is not popular.
Go to anime reddit and you'd see it is the most popular show by far this year.
The thread number counts are even beyond Made in Abyss, despite every aspects of it are worse than Made in Abyss by a long shot. In fact the thread number actually surpasses Re: Zero. which is 2016's biggest / most watched show.

I don't believe Franxx will win any award this year by any means.
Just a hot potato show which everyone is watching/ talking about, despite it's trash.

Salt in the Franxx is indeed a great show. I died laughing yesterday, thanks to all the salty comments.
But in all seriousness, I'm neutral to the conflict. At the end of the day, whoever wins there's still going to be massive amounts of salt and tantrums from the community, which is going to be quite entertaining. I'm personally enjoying the show so far. One episode isn't going to make me hate it like so many others. I'll just be sitting here, drinking coffee and laughing at all these morons participating in the waifu wars and those outside who hate the show because "hurr durr waifu bait garbage".

What part of Darling is trash?

This is by far one of the best anime of our generation.

Ikr, you can literally find out huge plot hole from every single damn episodes..

All those character arcs are semi trash too. (ep10 is the only one that's more interesting and not shallow / cliche as hell)
