/lit/-fag here. I watched this because this is supposedly one of the most critically acclaimed anime out there and everyone was sucking its dick in the recommendation thread I made a few months ago.

This bored me to tears. It's so tedious to get through. The characters lack depth and don't have any interesting quirks or traits. The plot is pretentious as fuck and tries to make itself seem smarter than what it actually is: a dumb space opera.

Is this really the best this medium has to offer?

Because if so, that's sad, man.

Nope, you won't find better honestly, if you found it bad that run away from the medium entirely.

No, it really, really isn't. You fell for the "LoGH is good" meme. Watch Shoujo Kakumei Utena if you want an actual /lit/ anime.

Sup Forums sucks eachother's cocks about a couple of series like /lit/ sucks eachother's cocks over Gravity's Rainbow
Despite his intention to shitpost, this user has it correct, this is what the medium is for nowadays. You can get you hardcore scifi and super serious drama in other, better formats. Yes there's some good drama in anime, yes there's some good romance and some good scifi in anime, but it's not what the medium's for. Modern day animation is for rabid fanservice, pantyshots and jiggling boobs in glorious 12fps.

Faggots are willing to spend hours and hours fapping to either Yan Wenli or Reinhard, without making a coherent sentece, then call it a day in belief that they once again proved that Ginga is "best anime evur".

You can say that about any medium. "Modern day movies are for capeshit and action flicks" "Modern day books are for YA Twilight clones"

I found it entertaining

though the MC's were as OP as your usual LN MCs and though it got me thinking about democracies and its values the Phezzani and Terraist sub-plots was completely worthless

Serial Experimental Lain is the best the medium has to offer, along with other well done cyberpunk anime.

Great list, especially Ushinawareta Mirai o Motomete. Definitely /lit/core considering that is derived from In Search of Lost Time.

Here's how i see it.
Say, what i'm looking for is brainfuck hard sci-fi, there's a pretty high chance there's a book out there with just that. Much less of a chance of finding a film like that, the level of mindfuckery i need is difficult to convey in the video format. Despite the book industry being dominated by masturbatory fantasies about vampires aimed at single moms, the medium shines its brightest at hardcore scifi and mindfuckery, it's how i see it at least.

If capeshit action is my thing, i don't need books for that, the film medium can offer glorious imax 3d, and massage seats that shake when something blows up at the cinema, explosions, shooting, cool one liners, you know the stuff that keeps typical mouthbreathing capeshitter entertained. Of course you can have books about that yeah, and there's plenty of deeper films out there, but the film industry shines its brightest when churning out action capeshit for the crowds to consume

Then there's anime, yes there's some pretty rad action and sci-fi, and there's some pretty sweet romance anime. But if i want cool scifi, drama or romance there's always a book that does it better, and if i want action there's always a film for that. So what if what i want is cute girls acting retarded, tripping over each other's boobs and shitty fanservice?
Do you know of a book where the entire (female) cast is literally (read: literally) guns? Do you know of a film where the entire (female) cast is literally boats? No matter what disgusting fetish or weird form of autism i have, anime has a show that mixes cute girls with my particular flavor. You like tanks? We have that, cute girls included? Planes? Food? Giant robots? Ceramic floor tiles? There's a show for everything and soon i bet we'll unironically have a show about cute girls weaving mongolian tapestry, fresh out of the press for that one autistic user that secretly masturbates to tapestry.
We truly live in a wonderful age.

Great Gatsby is mediocre compared to the best literature yet 100x better than LOGH. How sad is that?

Go watch Cowboy Bebop.
And if you don't like Cowboy Bebop...then I don't know what to tell you, man.
You would probably just need to give up on anime at that point.

Please, LoGH is Japanese space oprea. If you're going to compare it to western lit, something like Honor Harrington would be more appropriate.

Try Spice and Wolf, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Psycho Pass and Madoka. If you don't like any of them, anime isn't for you.

I have a Literature degree, feels bad man.

LoGH is basically shit, and I'm glad to see someone else acknowledge that. Everyone is going to claim you're a troll, and while likely true, it's absolutely true that LoGH is insufferable garbage that does most everything wrong, but receives praise for telling a political story that seems "grown up" to the average teenager on this board.
Probably the best written anime overall. Good post, user.

How the fuck could anybody describe Utena as bland? Even if you absolutely hated it, you can't feasibly argue that it's bland.

It's not shallow either, and it's only somewhat repetitive in the sense that it had a duel of the week format for a while (plus stock footage).
