    So you'd think but PM left on a cliffhanger that may have fast forwarded said prediction.

    fast forwarding doesnt make them not happen. we already know how its going to end, and shes going to die, and at best the other theory about the company purposefully making them die early is true adding maybe another layer.

    In many ways, the emotional parts are OK atleast though, and given the lazy archetypical characters with nothing much past general anime archetype, it might have worked better as an episodic series with focus on lots of different people (like death parade), but then again those people are awfully archetypical aswell, and it would get even more predictable...

    the "comedy scenes" are boring and hard to watch... because the characters arent interesting. Everything is being built directly to try and force you to like the characters, to make you "connect with them", but they have no personality that doesnt work towards that. And I find that both exceptionally boring and from a critical stand point just bad.

    I do think I may have enjoyed it better before I both watched more anime or started doing a lot of anime reviewing though, so dont take it to heart.
    You might like Toradora or Golden Time

    No offense taken. If anything maybe you could point out some anime that's very well worth watching and I may tell you if I've seen it or not.
    Thing about me is I'm very easily entertained lol.

    Depending on what you like from PM
    If you like the world and wish it was better expanded on - Psycho Pass
    If you like the saddness it brings - Bokurano or maybe Parasyte -the maxim-
    If you like the romance - either My Teeage Romcom SNAFU, Your Lie in April or Hyouka

    check their mal pages and read their synopsises first and see if you like them.

    Another good anime I've watched is Btooom!
    It was quite good I guess, but kinda short.. I guess I like 2-3 season animes more.

    Watched all of the above until you said romance. Tbh the only romance I got into was Toradora. It was also the only slice of sandwich anime I got into.

    I agree. The games were freaking amazing (especially the last one), but the story felt a little sloppy, especially near the end.

    Tooradora is also amaze-balls for romance, as well as Clannad if you'll throw that into the romance mix.

    I recently finished Cowboy Bebop and Oreimo S1, I don't know what to think of Oreimo yet, but I enjoyed Bebop a lot.

    The only anime that I have watched completely was Kill la Kill. It was a pretty intense anime. Little too much fan service though. You learn to not realize that it's there after a while.

    I have watched some of Sword Art Online, but I don't really feel like finishing it.

    you should definitely watch Gurren Lagann then, it's the same style as KLK but even more intense with less fanservice
     
    Endymion and Radi like this.

    Yeah I thought the second arc of SAO season 1 was a lot worse than the first arc. I kept watching expecting it to get better though. (cry)

    My favorite anime is definitely Angel Beats, the feels were so real at the end.

    Its always great to see someone who has seen Bokurano.
    I suggest reading the manga, the anime starts butchering the entire thing about half way through

    Also, SOA discussion?

    Stopped after the second season. First season was alright, couldve been really good though. Don't know why they couldnt go into detail, it was just one event after another, one episode he was lv37 or whatever, the next he was 75. The world wouldve been pretty cool to see. Haven't watched the new SAO, any good? I know it's about shooters, but das it B).

    I'd say its an improvement from its previous season. The antagonist was kinda cool.
