A series is shit
Call it a "deconstruction"
That somehow makes it good

I never see this, all I see is the Sup Forums hivemind assuming that anyone who says the word deconstruction is using it as a synonym for intellectual masterpiece.

It's not a deconstruction, it's a shonen, I found it entertaining but forgettable

Deconstruction is one of those many words that are used the wrong way on the internet. Just like autism for example. You don't even need to be graduated in literature to know that they actually mean "subversion" in most of those cases.

Anthony Kelly

Is this the birth of a new dank meme?

Jayden Walker

Pic unrelated I assume. Because OPM is more parody than deconstruction

Jeremiah Perez

So what actually is a deconstruction then? English isn't first language.

Sebastian Bailey

Deconstruction would be showing all the stupid aspects and archetypes of an genre and showing how fucking stupid and broken these concepts are. A subversion is in most cases just the subversion of your expectations.

Deconstruction is a method/critical outlook postmodernists use to analyse text/literature.

A show in of itself can't be called a deconstruction.

It is the critiques job to "deconstruct" the chinese cartoon and derive something from it.

Jace Walker
Jace Walker

Deconstruction usually just refers to a parody played somewhat straight.
It neither makes something good nor bad.

Jose Murphy

One Man Punch doesn't apply to the OP in either way. It's fantastic when taken at face value, and it isn't a deconstruction regardless.

Landon Miller

It's actually a seinen show.
Aside from that, carry on.

Parker Lopez

OPM is good because even if it weren't a subversion or deconstruction or whatever it would still make an excellent show with the animation/ world/ characters/ Fukumi's heaving great tits

Jace Nelson

Works for Meduka and Bonertagatari Wincest.

Isaiah Green
Isaiah Green

Why do you consider it to be good then?
Don't say it's a deconstruction because it's not.
The only redeemable character in the show is Homura, the rest are cannon fodder either used as a literal plot device or littered with shitty melodrama.

Jeremiah Rodriguez

Bentley Jenkins

It works for Alan Moore.

William Williams

It's just a show that took elements of the average Magical Girl show while twisting, used a smothering pace (which basically turned the average SoL aspect into a thriller) thanks the Butcher's writing, went for eerie/gloomy atmospheres by using every element possible (psychological horror, shock value, out-of-this-world Lovecraftian aspect) without going for stupid black-and-white manichaeism (Kyubey) and still inserting hommages to the tenors of the style. It's a roundtrip to hell and back ended by a perfectly foreshadowed catharsis as a take on the Faust tale.

Bonertagatari
A straight laced harem series. Why bring that up?

Benjamin Howard

Derrida emphasized that deconstruction is neither a method not a critique.

William Russell

Monogatari pioneered the faux deconstruction technique of playing it straight but winking at the audience every now and again so it seems less shit

Aaron Martinez

Lampshading? That seems to be more common than ever in recent anime.

When we talk about deconstruction, we talk about taking the core elements of what you expect from a genre and breaking them down and applying more cynical consequences to those elements. There is also no need for any of that dark edgy, melodrama, people must die blah blah stuff. That doesn't have to exist at all. Most deconstructions are basically a big "what if" that are applied to a more overused plot device.

Jason Sanders

Bakemonogatari is one of the few Anime I've watched that uses the "unreliable narrator" device to drive its stories forward. I see few other series like that. It's not straight laced at all.

Ethan Smith

The text actually deconstructs itself. The critique job is to point out the how the text breaks the binary oppositions down. Though there is no uniform opinion on what deconstruction do. In US, it is used as a method while Europeans are mostly against it.

Jason Anderson

/v/tards hate Madoka

Of course.

OP image changed for a moment
Am I'm the only only one that saw that?

James Nguyen

Madoka is actually a deconstruction in a sense. For example, a common theme in magical girl shows is the power of friendship overcomes everything. Yet, in Madoka the power of friendship is in a way what actually causes Mami to die in episode 3.

There are other examples. Anyway, I'm not saying it's a thorough deconstruction of the entire genre, nor that it being a "deconstruction" somehow makes it better. I just like it a lot regardless.

Caleb Sanders

We will never know.

Robert Stewart

That's an interesting opinion. I haven't heard that about Bakemonogatari before.

Great plot with well thought out twists
Very efficient storytelling
Ending makes the story of Madoka feels like a religious experience
Plus you can't deny there aren't many modern that emulates Goethe's Faust in theme

Aaron Nguyen
Aaron Nguyen

Faust is actually good, though.
And among the points of Faust is that Mephistopheles isn't really a bad guy and that he's just a plot device to put the incredibly intelligent, nihilistic Dr. Faustus who happens to have a wicked sense of humor into various locations.

Jacob Gutierrez
Jacob Gutierrez

ncredibly intelligent, nihilistic Dr. Faustus who happens to have a wicked sense of humor
you trying to meme me senpai?

Robert Harris

Yes, but to be fair, he actually is intelligent, somewhat nihilistic and he does have a wicked sense of humor.

Camden Ross

Another central point that Faust makes is that God can save everyone who desires to be saved, even Faust himself.
