It's not pretentious. It literally shows from the start that it's a glorified wish-fulfillment story about failed normalfag who tries to fit in society really hard, but fails no matter what. A wasted art on a horrible story.

Story of boys growing up that uses ping pong as a medium to show how they deal with life and mature.
Story of a guy who goes through college, showing the many ways it could have gone, highlighting his interactions with a friend he demonized and love interest. I don't think the story is pretentious, but I assume the sped up speaking is supposed to represent the fast passage of time that the MC feels.

Has Static characters
Has no plot
It doesn't have anything interesting to tell
It's builded around shitty referencial humor
Tells you that is ok to be a douchebag with other people and be extremely selfish

Himouto! Umaru-chan vs. Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Umaru:

- Has lots of cute girls
- The cute girls do lots of cute things
- Is funny
- Has entertaining dialogue
- Has just the right amount of dialogue

Legend:

- Forces the viewer to spend most of their time looking at men, as well as a few ugly bitches
- The men, which the viewers spend most of their time looking at, as opposed to cute girls, do lots of gay things
- Is boring and unfunny
- Has boring dialogue
- Has so much dialogue it's like reading a book. A boring, gay book.

Looking to anime instead of books for a good story is like looking to the toilet instead of a restaurant for a meal. Cute girls doing cute things is the only thing anime does better than any other medium. This includes mecha, which Hollywood did better with the first Transformers movie.

There's shit taste, which makes me mad, and then there's appalling taste, which just makes me sad. It's like someone with a mental disability doing something stupid - you can't help but feel sorry for their absolute and utter retardation. That's how a feel about the spewing retards in this thread, just sorry for them. I hope one day they can overcome their abysmal taste and at least reach a semblance of shit taste; anything is better than living life like a retard.

Oh, fantastic. Tatami Galaxy is pretentious because it tries to be smarter than it actually is (pretentious). The show is pretentious, in essence, because it's pretentious! Wonderful line of argument.

No fuck off. Stop extrapolating some kind of failed intellectual grandeur from the show's off kilter art style and general presentation.

It was a lot of pseudo-sexual bullshit about a Beta being given a shitton of deus ex machina to somehow get the pussy of his waifu that he's lusted after ever since high school.
Really, it's more of an explanation and viewing of what I assume to be a Japanese salaryman's wasted youth and mediocre life wondering what he could have been (if life had literally magically gone his way).

The entire thing was a visual masturbatory jerkoff of whoever made that movie that Sup Forums told me was something cool (granted, it has been years since then; I think I was recommended it somewhere around the TTGL movie reaching subs)..It was a fucking /r9k/ wet dream of BetaMAX fighting off mean fellas hurting the waifu he was estranged from and never saw him as the cool, nice guy he was on the inside. With his asshole grabbing and eating their guns.

It's cool if you're fucking 13 and you've never seen sexual symbolism yet, I guess.

want to start to collect anime
just buy whatever's cheap
go to hmv and see the entire series for $30
know nothing else besides the fact that it's a post apocalypse show with paranoid android as the ending theme
enjoy the beginning only to be severely disappointed by the end

I fell out of collecting shortly after. I only own like 5 series and this is the only one I have zero desire to ever watch again
