I thought this was mediocre anyway… It always tries to shove morals into your face, which gets annoying pretty fast. Might still be fun to watch though
My thoughts on SnK, together with some info by Anime World you probably didn’t know 😉
Don’t look so scary Eren. o:o
Wow,what a great season was that? If i say:”Shingeki no Kyojin was the greatest anime of 2013.”I don’t think there’d be anyone claiming the other way.
Well,as you probably know,most of our beloved animes are adaptations of well known mangas.But the thing you probably didn’t know is that mangaka of Shingeki no Kyojin Hajime Isayama took his manga to one of the well-known manga magazine Shonen Jump and they didn’t want to press Shingeki no Kyojin so Hajime Isayama took Shingeki no Kyojin to Kodansha.Kodansha’s 2013 profit’s declared as 31.346 million $.
Do you think Shonen Jump feels any regret now?
As someone who read the manga before watching the anime, I agree with this point of view (the logical one), since I end up seeing most things the same way.
However, the quality of “Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso” (or “Your Lie in April” or “April is Your Lie” or whatever you wanna call it) lies in its ability to have the READER completely engrossed. Which is largely dependent on the pace the reader himself chooses to read and take things in at.
The “story”, as I see it, is not at all important for this kind of work, since I’ve read manga about cooking, farming or just living your daily life, that are similar. And I agree completely, having a 14-year-old kid jump into his trauma under the pretext of “are you gonna run away forever” is simply wrong. There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to confront a trauma, especially in this case, since he doesn’t need his ability to play piano to lead a normal life at all.
In the end, I think the manga is good, but not because of its story, but the way it is constructed. It is extremely absorbing and fun to read. But that doesn’t work in anime-format. And it is completely obvious to me why: The average time i need for one chapter is about 2-4 minutes. That might tell you more about my pace of reading than about the manga itself, but i doubt anyone takes more than 10 minutes per chapter. THE ANIME TAKES 20 MINUTES PER CHAPTER so it is not at all surprising why it feels like crap, because all merits the manga had are thrown out of the window simply by the act of making it an anime.
Also, as of yet, there is no conclusion to the story, so it’s dumb to make it into an anime in the first place. Period.
Thank you for this critique Mr.Flawfinder, and have a nice day.
