It is going I guess, lives keeps on, and I m actually very lucky considering the situation most people are currently in, so I cant complain, just try to enjoy life and do my best with my duties.

I disagree that any character in Hinamatsuri was well written. The only thing that was well written was Anzu's arc -- not even her character, just the events that she went through. Definitely not Hina, which was a spoiled sycophantic brat, nor her codependent enabler, nor any of the other girls that are sent to Japan and gets lost clumsily, obviously playing up that clumsily cute trope.

They went horribly LOL. They were about Monogatari and his stubbornness. He would probably disagree, but I felt he was being extremely close-minded and not willing to let someone have their own interpretation on something. He has the mindset of if it isn't his way it is the wrong way and I don't mesh well with that.

Thanks for the fr :D

I'm glad someone finally came to discuss with me about this. To preface, I'm not in a good position to argue in-depth about the subject because I actually have very little experience watching a full high school slice of life show or romcom because I can't get past a single episode. The best I can do is explain where I'm coming from, but I'm not going to argue that high school dramas are inherently bad.

---One of the main problems with many high school dramas is the choice of a main conflict. With shows with a physical conflict, it's usually life or death stakes (save the world from the evildoer) so the tension is already built in. Even if I don't sympathize with the main characters that much, there's at least a basic level of engagement from wanting to see good overcome evil or something like that. If the main conflict is something more mundane and rooted in everyday issues, then that can still work, obviously. However, the more mundane and generic the main conflicts are, like fitting in, summoning up the courage to ask out your crush, worrying about your school club, etc, the harder it is to draw tension, interest, and engagement from the viewer, because at the end of the day, these issues aren't that big of a deal. Maybe it seems like getting with your crush is the biggest problem in your life when you're a teenager, but in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter. Maybe he/she turns out to be the love of your life and you marry your high school sweetheart, but probably not. Maybe your clique in high school is going to stick together to become life-long friends, so the anime is going to play up the best friends forever angle, but probably not, because people change and drift apart. Adult dramas and romances are more likely to be centered around problems that aren't as trivial, though that doesn't mean that they don't fall into the same traps. If there is a romance, it's more likely to be more than an infatuation. Other conflicts are more likely to feel like they should be taken seriously, like paying bills and job dissatisfaction. Though I don't watch many adult dramas that are pure dramas either way. So is the glamorization of dramas and romances in high school any different than how it is written for adults? In terms of content, the content is on average more mature and has higher stakes. Comparing adult dramas to teen dramas is like comparing teen dramas to PBS kids shows. A lot of the conflicts in teen dramas are the PBS kids show equivalent of Caillou staining his brand new shirt that his mom got for him and being disappointed. The same with friendships and crushes. It's hard to take an elementary school kid seriously when they say they like someone or that they're going to be best friends forever. It's cute, but I wouldn't want to watch a show that derives its point of tension from these friendships and crushes.

---Because teenage life drama is usually too trivial to watch by itself, teenage life drama is usually used as a B plot to action shows where the physical conflict is the A plot. In the main conflict, good guy fights bad guy to save everyone. In the space between action beats, good guy deals with issues at high school. Spectacular Spider-Man, Static Shock, and Batman Beyond are good examples of this. By the end of the episode, both A plot and B plot are resolved. That is to say, while life drama stuff itself is usually not sufficiently interesting/engaging to watch by itself, it is allowed to play out like the mundane life drama it is when paired with an A plot because then there's no need to place the point of emphasis and stakes in the life drama stuff. That's not to say that the B plot is boring or trivial--- these life drama issues matter and are necessary for fleshing out the lives of the protagonists. In addition, the B plots can frequently be more interesting than the A plots, which is the case for episodes where the A plot is deliberately generic to focus on the B plot. But the point is, having a physical conflict with higher stakes as the A plot frees the writers from having to over-dramatize the life drama stuff. For the protagonist, the life drama is second to the main concern of saving the world. In addition, the physical conflict means that we're most likely already rooting for and sympathizing with the protagonist as the hero of the story, which makes it easy to buy into his everyday issues. If Batman Beyond was just about Terry McGinnis in high school or Spectacular Spider-Man was just about nerdy Peter Parker in high school, keeping the same B plots while stripping away the A plot, then these shows would not be very interesting. In order to make up for that, the writers would most likely have to contrive melodrama and make things seem more important than they really are.

---THAT BEING SAID, my favorite live action show is Everybody Hates Chris, which is... a teenage drama. One of my favorite anime is Red Garden, which is... a teenage drama. There's nothing inherently wrong with centering a show around high school drama or adult drama or elementary school drama (if Arthur was on TV and there was nothing else to watch I'd still watch it). As with all subject matters, it all depends on the angle from which you approach it. Everybody Hates Chris has a very cynical, dark comedy take on the genre and at the same time its dramatic core feels very real and grounded. I thought that Red Garden did a good job using a physical conflict as a B plot to get the audience invested in its A plot drama. What these shows don't do is linger too long on crushes or social hierarchies or acting like the big school event capped off the main characters' self-actualizations. From a personal standpoint, I just don't believe that any of that stuff is a big deal that's worthy of being depressed if you fail at them or worthy of elation/consideration as a happy ending if you succeed. Media in general acts like high school is this big important time in your life and everything that happens is super important, and it can be, for some people, but I feel like this just makes life so much more dramatic and stressful for high schoolers. I didn't care about any of that shit, and my high school experience had much less turmoil as a result. So you can imagine how fed up I would be if I had to watch a typical high school drama, when I myself just shrugged off the problems that the protagonists face or avoided those problems in the first place by choice. I kind of sound like Hachiman, but unlike Hachiman I didn't even care enough to be cynical and anti-social and to even give it much thought. A show like Kaguya-sama is the embodiment of everything I hate about high school dramas--- over-dramatizing emotions and thought processes about crushes and interactions with the opposite sex. I know that it's supposed to be funny, but the underlying logic of the comedy is just stupid.

---Anyway, sorry for the long post, but it's a complicated matter and I wanted to be as clear as possible so I don't sound like I'm saying high school dramas are inherently bad. Now, if you understand my position and think that certain shows can change my mind, I'd be open to hearing them.

Also, out of all the troll stuff I said, like Cyberchase being the best isekai and Noir being a cute girls doing cute things show, you picked on my Avatar nomination as the controversial one? Best overall show doesn't mean best show ever. It means that it is the best at being good or great at nearly all facets of a show--- characters, character chemistry, humor, tone, worldbuilding, plot, action, and theme. Whereas other shows might be very strong in a few facets and merely OK in others.

I feel like you're trying to waste my time so here is a super dumbed down lesson. All genres are defined by certain cliches. You need a plot contrivance to begin any story. The problem is when you have too many cliches and plot contrivances, the audience's immersion will break.

Enjoy playing 3D chess against your own brain.
