Why? It's one thread out of 100. Do you also bitch about Precure. it's time and Aikatsu threads? They're just as bad, and much more regular. And that's not even mentioning the seasonal generals or Jojo threads, which bring in everyone from Tumblr to Reddit to /v/ depending on the show.

Is katanagatari in the rec list for people new to anime?
I only watched it last month and I've been watching anime for about five years now.
I would assume some other nisio works but I feel like katanagatari is really worth waiting to watch to fully appreciate it.

Joshua Richardson
Joshua Richardson

It is in a lot of rec lists, but honestly, who cares? A lot of the reccd shows are reccd because they're actually really good. Watching nothing but seasonal shlock or obscure, mediocre SoL doesn't make you superior.

Overall I enjoyed it but the ending left a sour taste. I get they didn't want the cliche of beating the bad guys and the two MCs living happily ever after but bringing in the fortune telling stuff was pretty stupid.

They made episode 40 min long when it could have been 20 min if you cut out the useless and retarded talking

I thought the fights were too cliché and went on for too long
it felt like the whole thing was just a setup for the "fuck you" ending

having said that I liked how all the characters were quite interesting and none of them were really "evil"

What about the ninjas that were killed first by Nanami? They would've done terrible things to her, had she not done terrible things to them.

No user, I have seen the show I'm not joking around.
There was, in fact, retarded and useless talking. The characters were repeating themselves like there's no tomorrow. The relationship was good but a lot of the dialogues weren't

Funny how some people enjoyed it for the dialogues, and how some people hated it because of this.

At least most of them agree that this anime is beautiful.

Yeah these are the original scans from the music batch I DL'ed. Those recolors/resizes on that DA are well done. healing brush can only do so much and there is intricate stuff in the center so it only works but so well, so it requires someone going in and fixing it by hand and I don't feel like it right now.

Thanks user.

I'm resizing them together as I go, so i've got a rythym going. about halfway so i'm going to continue dumping.

It was ok, I liked the colors, and the premise was a nice idea. Although I think it's funny the best episode didn't feature any of the main characters.

Thanks for taking the time to share the artwork.

Meanwhile, for those of you that are new and are wondering what/when this story occurred in Japanese history...

...or you don't know ANY Japanese history, here's Japan's history in 9 minutes:

This really helps for period shows like Katanagatari, Uta Koi, Hetalia and possibly countless others.

Wordy

Yup, it was wordy but gave you a lot of insight into the motivations of key characters. Lot's of dialogue was also spent on explaining things to Shichika. Since this show was a monthly, the episodes were an hour long and that's a lot of time to fill before a fight scenes. They themselves were great, but the plot, for me, was a greater payoff.

Even if it didn't end the way I thought it should have, dammit!

Possibly one of the worst endings I ever seen in an anime.

Let me get this straight. Mc's lover is killed by the ninja hired by the princess. Mc goes full rage mode and somehow takes out 11 weapon masters. Then when fighting the ninja that killed his girlfriend, he kills him fairly bloodied and it was implied he was on death's door. He see the Shogan and the princess. He kills the shogan. You were disappointed because you thought he died but at least was happy he killed the guy who killed his girlfriend. Nope. Fuck that. Instead the faggot is alive and the princess....yes the same women who ordered her ninja to kill his girlfriend is in good relations with the guy and travelling with him.

Utter. Fucking. Bullshit.

A 9/10 falls to a 7/10.

Shogan
not SHOGUN KAYO
There had been enough death that day he thought. Also, do you think that Hitei would have been able to get as close to the Shogun and gain his trust if she didn't kill Togame?

Probably, but that's about the only thing I can think of. Remember that Togame was using Shichika. She was schemeing

Gabriel Carter

Zachary Gray

Togame wasn't killed by Hitei.

She had every opportunity to have the swords delivered and earn the recognition she demanded. She didn't want that however. She needed to deliver them in person because she wanted to kill the shogun.

A woman of her intelligence deserves no sympathy for sticking her head in the lion's jaws and pretending it will ignore the offense.

Why do you bash the ending when you clearly didnt even pay attention to it? Its clearly stated many times by Emonsomethingpokemon that Hitei didnt order him to kill the princess and that he did it on his own accords, the fucker even says so himself like 15 mins after her death, also Hitei actually liked her, its not like they were mortal enemies, you would know all of this if you has actually watched the fucking ending.

Luke Thompson
Luke Thompson

Oh boy.

Jack Barnes
Jack Barnes

Maybe you didn't pay attention, but Hitei never ordered Emonzaemon to kill Togame, he did because he thought Togame was a life threat to Hitei, and honestly she was.
But even so, Hitei and Togame kinda considered each other the closest thing to consider a friend, and like Hitei said to Shichika at the end: "I never disliked her".

The most interesting point here is Togame, because no one knows how far she was willing to carry on with her vengeance plan: like killing Shichika, wiping out the entire shgunate and the Maniwani, taking all the blades to herself, and maybe even commiting suicide if she ended up killing Shichika and regretting it.

I hate people that hate Katanagatari's ending just because they didn't understand it or the series itself.

Katanagatari is a story of failure and coming to terms with that failure. The characters that mature and come out of the events for better are the ones that learn to appreciate the journey they took to reach their dreams, even though said dreams never reached fruition. Togame realises this as she dies, because getting revenge isn't all it's cracked up to be, but travelling around Japan with Shichika made it all worth it. Shichika also reaches the same conclusion after failing to protect Togame and failing to die to Emonzaemon's hands, the only person who could kill him at this point, which is why he doesn't execute Hitei and allows her to follow him around while he pursues the dream he shared with Togame of mapping out Japan, a dream that is entirely made worthwile by the journey one takes to complete it.

The ones who failed at revenge...
The ones who failed at their goals...
The ones who fell before achieving their aspirations...
The ones who did not succeed...

The ones who lost...
The ones who stumbled...
The ones who rotted...

The ones who fought with all their might, sacrificed everything,
just to have their work be for naught, yielding fruitless results,
who died unfairly, or perhaps illogically,
tragically, without face, full of regrets...

The story which offers a happy future for them,
filled with hopes and dreams...

"Katanagatari" quietly lowers its curtains here.

More like, life may not be fair or have a concrete meaning at the end, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy it and find your own meaning for it.

Where the fuck is the OST? Its not on AB, Baka, or nyaa as far as I can find. The only thing i can find is some peruvian website that requires you to speak creol to answer security questions.

You can extract most of the ost from the youtube playlist altough the quality might be a bit lower.

The boss rush at the end was the funnest part of this show. That being said I enjoyed it but a couple episodes near the middle were just too slow and almost pointless.

I really liked the children's picture book (not sure if this is the right term because I'm Electronic Sports League) like art style. Is there anything else with a visual style like this?

Colton Wright
Colton Wright

children's picture book
I wouldn't call it that but I know what you mean. If anything I feel it's trying to imitate traditional japanese scroll paintings, at least with the scenery surrounding them and the poses. Obviously the human faces and features look a lot better thankfully.
I don't think there's any other anime with type of style, Katanagatari was very unique about its visual presentation.
