You don't quite understand just how bad it is until you've seen it.

The only meme I'm currently following is Goblin Slayer. Holy shit is that show trash. I'm waiting patiently until it finishes to review it.
literaturenerd Nov 11, 2018 6:23 PM
Haven't heard of that one before now. Perhaps I'll look into it. It seems pretty bad.

That's totally fine. People can like any show or movie for whatever reason clicks for them. A lot of Monogatari fans I talk to are highbrow snobs who also speak fluent Japanese and love it mostly for the clever prose. If you want to like it for the plot, awesome! Most film critics love Battleship Potemkin for the cinematography and historical significance. However, there could be some guy that loves Lucio Fulci horror films and loves Potemkin because it started the tradition of eyeball mutilation in film. Maybe some guy REALLY loves 80s montages like Rocky and Karate Kid, so he loves Potemkin for inventing the film technique of montage. I didn't mean to come down on people for enjoying things in different ways.

I think that they did it that way, because the superior being that created the system, as well as the arbiters themselves aren't subject to our same moral standards nor are they capable of feeling or understanding emotions (at least the way humans do), which is why you would expect them to have a more objective or neutral approach when judging humans. All the thing they did with Decim and Chiyuki was just a little experiment to see what would it happen if they add a human component to it, or at least that's how I see it.

Also, the reason why I don't think they use people's memories is because they need to see how these people would act in extreme situations to truly judge them.

Anyway, it's cool to see a different perspective and I do think that the points that you brought up are fair criticism of the flaws that the show has.

I see where you are coming from.

I can definitely see why you couldn't feel anything for the characters and the situations they experienced, since of course most of them consists of a single episode. Nonetheless, I don't really think that was the main objective of the anime. I mean, sure each individual story is important with its own themes and characters, but, at least for me, what the story was trying portrait as a whole, is how unjust and arbitrary the concepts of "good" and "evil" are when not considering any kind of context or circumstance, which is what Decim progressively realizes after experiencing a human point of view that's outside of the judgement system (Chiyuki's), and of course after being revealed that he is Nona's test subject.

So what I'm trying to say is that, while I agree that some individual stories could've been handled better, I don't think that affects the general message that the story is attempting to present.

(English isn't my first languge, so I apologize if a made any grammar mistake).

I really agree with your review of SNT. The thing I hate is all the pretentious, vapid dialogue that adds nothing to the plot. Do you have any GOOD thrillers to suggest?

I was just wondering, why didn't you like Death Parade?

Nice review.

I have actually given Satsuriku no Tenshi a slightly higher score, but yeah the OVA I did give a 1. As someone who gives relatively higher scores, giving a 1 means a whole lot of faults in the anime so let me start explaining some of those. First of all, the characters are entirely retarded. Be it the reasons which back their stories or their personalities and it's clear they weren't any thought in terms of depth. I say that including all of the cast, but let's take the least retarded one among them as an example, Rachel.
*spoiler alert*
So she basically got traumatized because of her family situation which is as forced as they come and killed her parents in order to have a family. Ok nice no problem with that, but what is all this about possession obsession? She killed the puppy for it to be hers? For real? Claiming that this would "fix" it? I mean, I would be amazed if you didn't cringe at that. Moreover, her not wanting Zack to find out about it and even his reaction in itself are both are both way too forced that I sighed while watching(multiple times)
*end of spoiler*

Now moving on to the story itself, the floors were made so that these retarded maniacs could "judge" people. And for some reason they look much more fucked up than the people they try to judge, but let's not get into their characters as well or we won't be seeing the end of it. I really don't see the purpose behind this setting and story. How these people were brought in the same place or the nature of that building remain unknown. It is as if the anime purposely focuses on the most trivial points and ignores anything that could serve an actual purpose.

Now there is also the almighty "anime logic" which in the entirety of my anime career I haven't seen as much in action as in here. Zack got electrified, lost at least 2 liters of blood, got exposed to a whole lot of poisonous substances and yet as we reach the end somehow he seems to have forgotten about all this injuries and went all super saiyan on us under the petty excuse of him being a "monster" which is overly abused in the show.

I could also go into detail about how horrendous the art and animation both are, but they weren't the main reason behind my score and I have probably said enough about what makes this anime worthy of such a score.

Lol, thanks mate

Thanks man, but there's really no such thing as an unbiased review. We all have our own viewpoints.

I can agree at certain points but i don't necessarily think that the plot itself is dreadful and that it is being boosted out by the external factors.
The story is very compelling, with its unique setting/background that essentially drives this story to its fullest. As I am bias towards survival theme, the storyline up to a certain point was one of the best. Aside from the plot drifting here and there like any other anime (ie delaying the plot with individual character's drama) the plot is outstanding. Having said that, like any other piece of greatness it does have its negatives. However, when you add up the good and the bad, you end up with a landmark anime series that is currently shaking the industry with its mesmerizing, sensational, emotional, intense, and inspiring seasons.

I really liked your Satsuriku no Tenshi review, I couldn't agree more.
