Magus Posted November 21, 2009 Share Posted November 21, 2009 [size=1][color=navy][strike]Time for some topic thieving[/strike] I thought this would be an interesting topic for here. I'm just going to copy and paste it because the poster certainly did a nice job in wording it. [i]"This might be an interesting exercise and awesome discussion fodder. We have shows we love. We have shows we hate. In a normal discussion, we tend to heap praise on a show we love and tear into a show that's terrible or too silly. Nothing wrong with that, it's perfectly normal. Yet at the same time many great shows have something that could improved. We think "man, if these things were change, it would be perfect!" Conversely many awful or silly shows may at least have a little redeeming virtue, and so one might think "man, if this had been done differently, it wouldn't suck!" So here, the challenge is to think outside the box and look at your favorites and pet peeves with a critical eye. The rules are simple. [List]Choose any sort of anime. It can be a series or an OVA or a movie, it doesn't matter. Do this as often as you like with as many anime as you like. [*]If you like it, list and discuss the things you like most about it. Obviously it's vice versa for something you hate. These details can be broad or specific, it doesn't matter. Maybe it's a character, maybe it's the plot at large, maybe it's the animation or music. Anything goes. [*]Here's the trick. For every favorite strength or weakness, also single out and discuss a flaw or virtue respectively. [*]Discussing and/or challenging the criticism and praise that others have to offer is fair game and highly encouraged. [*]Just for even more emphasis, discussion is key. Please, please don't make this a list thread. [/LIST] Here's a very simple example to get everyone on the right track. [quote][B]Final Fantasy Gundam[/B] General opinion: positive [U]Strengths[/U] Well first off, wow! I can't believe Sunrise commissioned Square-Enix to make up a Gundam story. Sure, all of the men are designed like bishonen and they brought magic into a mecha show, but the story is epic! And best of all, the corresponding game won't suck for a change! Now that's merchandising done right. [U]Weaknesses[/U] Hey, wait a minute! This show doesn't actually exist! And it's a delusional fantasy that will never happen! Whew, thank goodness. That was close."[/i][/quote] Personally, I don't care how you set it up. ~Props to GWOtaku for the thread~ Edit: Crap... The title is suppose to be "The Virtues [b]and[/b] Flaws of Anime [b]You[/b] Enjoy or Dislike"... Can I get someone to change it please?[/size][/color] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
