Dropping this shit show, I can only imagine how much worse it gets from here
Didn't you just make this thread, but without the bullshit tldr greentext?
So I'm not the only one on Sup Forums who sees how terrible this show is?
It's full of asspulls but it's old so forgiveable and the interactions are great Some of the fights in Chapter Black are really cool
Hey Op while I agree this show is full of asspulls and not a 10/10 I feel like you're kind of missing the story telling to some extent. >here have a ring that boosts your power that youll never wear That was for scrubs he got trained by Genkai pretty early in the show. >here have a walkie talkie to keep in contact with me even though weve been speaking with fucking telepathy this entire time Botan seems to have her own set of logic. The fact that a demon like Hiei could potentially use that whenever on anyone makes sense. Botan connecting to a powerful demon with no emotional connection seems like a huge stretch. (sleep could also probably cheat) I believe it is vaguely implied she on some level functions like a human with psychic powers. I honestly question if she is just a artificial ghost created to serve. >i know, this one human child who has been a spirit detective for five minutes, out of the entire spirit realm he is our only hope, dont even bother sending backup I assume you mean the Saint Beasts? I assume Prince Koenma can't use the spirit defense force freely. He did have countermeasures in place when you consider he literally did send Hiei and Kurama as backup. The actual logical problem I see here is why Pacifier is responsible for humanity yet at the same time not trusted with certain tools. >demon gives yusuke a massive beatdown, basically kills him but doesnt finish him for no reason but to gloat Assuming you mean the last Saint Beast He had a hateboner for humanity and literally wanted to torture him. He wanted him to understand the differences between humans and demons. The reason for his life force ass pull was to show the saint beast failed to understand how humans in the yyh universe work. Their power is tied to their own emotions. If you mean Toguro he literally understood this, and literally manipulated Yusuke's emotions to bring out 100%. What you're complaining about is a solid plot point.
i honestly cant think of a show with more asspulls desu
Lol hakushit. Lol that's way too funny. Kek/10 bro.
>dropping the show before its best arc
at least get through toguro and the dark tournament saga before calling it shit. Though you'd probably shit on that too because you're such a contrarian.
if you have to wait 40 or so episodes for something to get good it isnt worth your time
>I assume you mean the Saint Beasts? the whole mirror of darkness thing. it literally grants wishes and could end the world but they just send only yusuke
>Assuming you mean the last Saint Beast reasoning behind an asspull doesnt make it any less retarded. also having literally zero consequences too, it doesnt even go for the vague "it reduces your lifespan", theres nothing
Shounen in general has a lot of asspulls. Dragon Ball inspired most of the battle manga we all know, and Dragon Ball is king of asspulls. If you don't watch it, then whatever. It is generally agreed it has the best tournament arc in all of anime.
Anyone know where I can find bluray rips? Actual bluray rips, not dvdrips upconverted to "bluray quality". I want the improved colors and dub fixes.
I can only find torrents claiming to have BD-rips but are full of shit and lies.
It has the best 3-4 man group out of most anime even today. Each of them have interesting personalities and have great chemistry with each other. Not to mention best girls. It has great memorable fights, soundtrack, and villains. All the major faults always ties back to power level shit and that it itself a product of its time due to Dragon Ball's popularity. And you might as well dreg up FoTNS and have an autism fit about its power creep. Nu Sup Forums are such babies.
I would argue the power level stuff is pretty self-aware, especially in the dub. For the time, it was a good attempt at deconstructing and sometimes even openly mocking the shonen genre spawned from DBZ.
>there are literally no consequences for using up your life energy Actually, there was an entire chapter about it in the manga, but like a lot of the non-action stuff it got skipped by the anime. Still, it was mainly a pointless side-story where Yusuke has trouble against a normal human gang due to being so weakened (still beats them though).
In Fairy Tail they won't even offhandedly mention it either, sometimes the character will pull some overpowered shit out of their ass with no explanation and then defeat the enemy in one hit because friendship
At least Bleach had the courtesy of mentioning the Final Getsuga before Ichigo used, it even though it was brought up out of nowhere with no buildup to it prior to Ichigo needing it to defeat Aizen.
>I would argue the power level stuff is pretty self-aware how so
>Kuwabara develops the power to cut through the Makai Barrier because he subconsciously senses that Sensui is about to kidnap him to cut through the Makai Barrier
He wasn't sensing he was going to be kidnapped; he sensed the growing makai energy and his subconscious responded with developing his powers more.
