>fake robor girlWhy did I watch this hunk of shit again?
>>19064502>>19064854It may be a big old pile of shit but at least the OP is good.
>>19064502Because it's representing AUTISM
>>19064502It had a few cool moments at least, those undercover mechs in the coats were cool as fuck.
>>19067257>>19068225>>19069620I miss skinny defined girls like thisEvery anime girl atm feels chubby soft
>>19064502>hunk of shitWas it so bad? Because I'm interested after watching this >>19064854
>>19067257>>19068225>>19069620So apart from weak coomer bait it has no value?
>>19070096Indeed, it doesn't.
>>19069704It's one of my favorite anime for sure but I seem to be in the minority in thinking it's good. My only real issue with it is its 14th episode being a 90 minute info dump.
>>19071458>My only real issue with it is its 14th episode being a 90 minute info dump.The sheer audacity of doing that just makes me laugh.Imagine buying that one episode on LD in the 90's. What a treat.
>>19073074I remember binging Key one late night a few years ago. 15 episodes? That's about 5~6 hours, I'll be in bed by 03:00~04:00. All's well and fine until episode 14. These two dudes just sit there talking, and talking, and talking, and talking, and talking, and talking, and talking. I couldn't believe how slow it felt. Like I was listening for ages. And I was getting progressively more sleepy, probably because of the monotomy. Eventually I checked the time, and realised I was about 60 minutes into the "20 minute" episode. But until that realization it just felt like going crazy, experiencing sleepiness induced time dilation or some shit. Definitely made sure I'll never forget Key.
>>19069704It is a really good show, for the most part. Especially the first 13 episodes. It was a top 10 anime for me up to that point. Unfortunately the penultimate episode is one of the worst directed episodes in anime history. Its 2 guys sitting on a bench for 90 minutes explaining the entire backstory of the show. The final episode is decent enough, but the damage is done. Its doesn't bring it down to a shit show overall, but that penultimate episode severely damages it.
I'm quite a fan of Key; I liked it quite a lot. I especially love the character designs, which are from the same guy who did them for Xenogears, Xenosaga Episode I and Xenoblade X. I think Key is his only anime. Really good dub too. Awesome music. Alas, as I posted above, that second to last episode is really bad though.
Wow, I didn't know this series was so hated. I saw it last month and thought it was actually entertaining and had a quasi-unique premise. It seems to be another OVA that suffered from a sudden budget cut that led to those two final "episodes" that slammed all that exposition into your head. I dunno, I liked most of the characters and how it showed the ugly side of being an idol. That prodigy producer character was great.
Also want to add that Key looks incredibly cute when she isn't "muh autistic rei girl" mode.
>>19074006to be fair this is a crowd where the revelation that she's not really a robot might be a deal breaker
>>19074013yeah but there's plenty of /m/ related shit in it for the most part, I think. Besides, almost everyone else is either a robot or wants to BE a fucking robot.
>>19073771>I think Key is his only animeHe did the original manga for Ruin Explorers. He also did the manga and character designs for the manga/OVA/video game franchise Ichigeki Sacchuu!! Hoihoi-san.
>>19074009Its more Rei pulling a Key, since Key predates Eva.
>>19064502you got no one but yourself to blame there anon
>>19074539Did anybody on the NGE staff even watch Key?
>>19074006That's not really a budget issue, it's just fucking poor pacing. They could have slowly revealed this stuff throughout the OVA, but instead the OVA is mostly about a girl walking around and being expressionless like some low rent Lain knockoff.
>>19074658>the OVA is mostly about a girl walking around and being expressionless like some low rent Lain knockoffIt should have stayed that way. Key cute.
>>19074658Key had the same issue that something like Game of Thrones, The X-Files, LOST, etc... all had. It did a great job building up its mysteries. The mystery basically was the show. When it came time to actually answer things, they had no idea how to do it organically, and there was so much of it that they made that disaster of a second to last episode where they practically narrated it to us.Also, Key predates Lain.
>>19074840Mysteries are great precisely because they're mysteries. There is no such things as a good resolved mystery. People that understand this like Lynch and The Big O guy tend to get flack from brainlets.
>>19074009But you do acknowledge that autismo robot Key is cuter, right?
>>19074860>There is no such things as a good resolved mysteryequally brainlet take. that only works with mysteries that are large enough in scale to have a lot of room for speculation. Never revealing who a serial killer is doesn't work because your discussion is only going to boil down to "well I think it's this guy" and that's it. A mystery that is resolved is a work that had the details that it planted throughout the story add up to something meaningful. There is a cleverness in making that happen in and of itself.
>>19076946the proper word in this instance is probably 'suspense'
>>19073766Can I skip it, watch the last episode and go back to the infodump later?
>>19080385No, not really, although you could try to go through it at 1.5 speed.
>>19083808This picture totally makes me think of Key being the type who would answer the phone for an obvious scam call and be on the phone with them for an hour giving up all her personal details.
>>19072186Why were 90s /m/ fashionable as fuck?
What are some anime girls with this kind of hairstyle? There's something about this messy, 90s hairstyle I really enjoy
>>19092752The "just fuck my shit up" special? That one cute soldier from Gasaraki has a rather ugly haircut as well.
>>19064502Worst anime I ever watched. No contest.
>>19092829Worse than Infinite Ryvius and Active Raid?
>>19094384It wasn't as bad as [your favorite anime].
>>19094384And Fate shit and Skull Man and Mob Psycho and Lucky Star and Listeners. None of them scammed people out of their money. Final nail in the coffin was inconsistent run times.
>>19094686>None of them scammed people out of their money.The Fate branding is used for one of the most insidious scams known to man.
>>19094686The Skull man was fucking good what the fuck are you on?
>>19064502>>19064854I keep meaning to watch this, to understand the meme.How does it compare to say, LainThis anon >>19099542 don't seem to understand.
>>19102907it's garbage compared to lain.
>>19103714You're saying this as if Lain was any good to begin with.
>>19103714That's saying little
>>19102907Lain and Key are very cute.
>>19102907There's little in common between the two other than their quality.
>>19102907They're nothing alike it's Perfect Blue.
>>19064502I'm thinking best anime ever made top 12
>>19064502ITT:>robocoomers lose their precious waifu and get buttmad
>>19070096>weak coomer baitdude i saw b&w ads for figurines of this shit when iwas like 12 in the back of some old ass hobby planet mags i hadmy pp was awakened to many restless nights because of
>>19064854I'm sorry but my autism demands I find the genre this music falls into.I swear this sounds like the old music my parents listened to but I could never find the genre it fell into.
>>19064502KEY DOES NOT UNDERSTAND PLEASE EXPLAIN TO KEY
>>1910541890s was that time when you just want to live in the setting and ignore the plot.
>>19112908What's this from?
>>19113455The Japanese DVD had extensive BTS material.
>>19108543I'd like to know as well. The first 25 seconds are stunning.
>>19108543>>19118847It's inspired by the 90's genre New Jack Swing. "In the Night" has more japanese-esque chord progressions and fretless bass, but it is inspired by stuff in that genre and general electronic music. I'll link a couple examples that might be considered New Jack Swing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tS4Wh30HGAshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SxItW8M3UIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=muDCggSpqpEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-wNWem2248
>>19122560Awesome thanks anon.I must've mixed the old Korean love ballads my parents listened to with the 90's/early 00's music my older cousins listened to. I already knew Bobby Brown but now I have a clear idea of what to search for.
I just finished episode one, did she almost get scouted for a JAV?!I have low standards but I'm liking it so far, does it get any better or worse?
>>19146194It's pretty consistent throughout but you will probably think episode 14 is terrible.
>>19073208The series is also unusual in that the episodes are of varying length. The first thirteen episodes are approximately 25–30 minutes each. The final two episodes are 90 minutes each.
>>19122560the only one that sounds remote to the opening is the seal one.
>>19129539>X/1999 by CLAMPfuck, i love the movie that everyone hates
>>19154001people are just mad that's the only ending they will ever get
