Ohh.. And in this side of the spectrum, someone's getting bombarded by Zerg's army. Just want to say that I'm with you. I think his review (if you can consider it like that) was really biased and unfounded. (Oh, look, an 8 for K-On!!) Don't know what he's trippin when he wrote it up but I'm staying away from this website on hoping that I wont catch any of it. Anime, ultimately, is an art. It's a medium to express yourself and to tell a story. I couldn't care less if the characters are cute or bordering insults to orcs.

Hah you clearly fell for Zerg's bait. He was just expressing his view yet casuals love to swarm over smelly fodder. You're clearly triggered otherwise what's the point of Lorem ipsum wall text?

Nice response to the walking epitome of pseudo intellectual called Zerg.

1. He admitted that the first statement was outlandish. I don't consider it the worst thing I've ever seen, but I could probably rationalize it.
2. Many don't care for EDM, understand that the music is half of a music video, some could consider the music video as undeserving of over a 5 if they did not care for the music.
3. Yes it does try to do something objectively unacceptable. Shelter baits you into expecting some substance, it baits you into thinking that you will find something worthwhile if you examine it deeply. Unfortunately the substance that it encourages you to dig out simply is not... there.
4. I don't see him criticizing that it has a female loli pedo-bait character, but the lame way she's incorporated. She's there to make mindless neckbeard white knights cry with sympathy that they wouldn't have if it weren't a character they were attracted to. Unfortunately they fell for it like everyone who mindlessly consumes the garbage the industry spits out continuously.
5. It was apparent to everyone that wasn't triggered that he wasn't generalizing *everyone*, only those pathetic enough to fall for the lame attempts at invoking the easily attained weaboo sympathy. (see the people who said that this video made them cry)
6. It doesn't imply that they're consciously offended. More meaning that the lack of substance is an insult to the audience.

It's a lowest common denominator of a story designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator of an audience.

You should try actually reading the review instead of going off on a tangent after getting triggered over one line and forgetting the rest.

I wouldn't really say Superman is a story that is heavily invested on that theme to the point of it being the big climax of the story. Yes he got that way to earth but at the end it's a superhero show and is about that. So I'm forgiving on that.
And I completely disagree about him being a hypocrite. There's no problem in her being a cute girl itself. The problem lies in her being just a cute girl to promote the "story" instead of going the proper ways about it. There's nothing hypocritical about liking K-ON as an example (I don't know what cute-girl anime specifically you're talking about) while writing what he did. K-ON never went out of it's way to establish what this 6minute video tried to do. It never went past being cute girls for the sake of being cute girls. As such it isn't compareable and never was part of his gripe. It really isn't about her being a cute girl at all.

Also most of what I brought up IS stuff he (as well as other people) said and I really didn't go in detail. It's just that you don't find stuff like that on his wall or responding to people when a good portion of those not liking it tell him to go die. Can't really blame him to not take people seriously when 90% of the people "criticizing" are like that
Toadesstern Oct 20, 2016 11:23 AM
the review is good though. The story IS bullshit. I don't agree with him to put 100% of the review down to the story and thus gave it a 4 myself as the animation was pretty and the music wasn't really my thing. Doesn't change the fact that what's said there is correct.
Like you said, the problem isn't the cute character. It's the fact that the cute character is used to make up for a lack of what should be done with the visuals (or however else you intend to tell the story) IF you want to tell a story.
I personally am of the opinion that it would have been better without a story and should have been just pretty pictures without that crap ending but if you do it don't be surprised when people point out that they only laughed when they saw that it's essentially a story about worst dad ever who tortured his daughter by sending her into space for shitz and giggles.
Oh super smart genius who has the intellect, the money and the resources to build a spacecraft like that which can support her for 7+ years AND do that matrix stuff? Oh yeah, let's just keep it at a one-seater because it had to be to be sad. Can't have the other 7.5 billion people on planet earth create a second spacecraft (or get a 2nd seat...) in the face of human annihilation because wouldn't be that sad anymore if it'd be teenage girl+teenage boy.

So tldr; yeah I agree that it was too harsh, no I don't think it was bad and I enjoyed reading it a lot and agreed with pretty much everything. Although the weighting was off for me. Again, if you don't like the people on here for liking the review maybe you should just stay on Reddit instead.
OppaiSugoi Oct 20, 2016 11:14 AM
lmfaoo, tryhard is butthurt. You obviously took the bait OP planted, you got played.
Toadesstern Oct 20, 2016 10:49 AM
I take it you haven't read his posts on here. Or the hundres of people praising the review for being really well done.
It's just when it's obvious that the person hasn't even read it or making stuff up like the guy on Reddit, people don't feel like it's worth to engage with them. Hence the troll responses to people like you.

Luckily this isn't Reddit, people on here like the review so you'll have to get used to that or just stay on Reddit if it annoys you that much.
Toadesstern Oct 20, 2016 10:36 AM
Remember the guy that got gold on Reddit for that one post? The guy got on here and apologized for writing that bullshit in the end.
We had a thread from some other guy from reddit trying to diss the review that turned into 3-4 pages of people praising the review and telling the guy to get lost.

So could you just stop posting for a day and calm down? You're really embarassing yourself with blatantly not even understanding what you're writing about... the cringe is real.

I like how you haven't said a single thing about my actual review and instead just resort to presumptuous comments about how influential I am and how ugly I am. I appreciate these sort of classy comments when my review has literally zero content that could be deemed as "trolling" or even remotely "insulting."

If you actually read my review, you'd realize that my complaint is not about "attractive" characters.

Again, everyone who has complained about my review has read to criticize rather than to comprehend. Please stop acting so butthurt over the fact that I used ten minutes to write a review and it has garnered more attention than it probably needed to. Your obsession with a numerical rating is way more testament to why nobody takes this community seriously when it comes to free discourse of ideas.
GetterRin Oct 20, 2016 2:17 AM
So you don't agree with him, that's a normal thing. That doesn't mean that he should be spammed and harassed and called all kinds of names.
When people are preaching that the story is amazing and great and better than a lot of 12 episode series(I read that a few times). Some cheap feels don't make something good.

Also it is a thing, it's series which mix little girls/moe and shock factor. Stuff like Elfen Lied, Gunslinger Girls, Alien 9, Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne and etc... You probably haven't watched that many shows or just heard of that many, if you have never seen cute girls being used for some simple and cheap "feels".

Also what the person bellow said is true.
itstwentyfifteen Oct 20, 2016 12:59 AM
"Most of the time anything below a 5 on this site is almost always "look at how smart I am and how critical I can be" for absolutely no reason."
This is a sad excuse for having shit taste
GetterRin Oct 19, 2016 10:04 PM
I mean the world as a whole, since people on Reddit are pretty pissed about it too.
Touniouk Oct 19, 2016 6:31 PM
I gave Shelter a 5 because it perfectly fits into the idea I have of that specific score: an unimpactful work, may it be in a positive or negative way. But just because that's what I think of the short doesn't mean the other person feels the same way about it and i can easily think of a couple of reasons why someone would rate it a 1.
The first thought that comes to mind is that a lot of people think of scores differently, and it happens often that I stumble on a profile which explains its rating system. With that in mind, some people believe that being completely unremarkable is the worst thing a show could be which would justify giving it the lowest score.
The other idea which is also the most probable is that even thought I agree with Zerg's review, I don't necessarily feel as strongly about his words than he does. So while we both agree on the flaws of the show, I think they make it an average show while he thinks they make it a terrible one.
Or maybe the score is just here to highlight his opposition to the fast growing hype the short has been getting.

Anyway, I think you should worry less about the score and more about the review attached to it because a score alone doesn't mean a lot.
