[up] That pretty much sums it up. Though, one key difference is that Neon Genesis Evangelion is primarily a character study, while Madoka Magica focuses more on the plot. Their tone is comparable, however.

And Madoka Magica isn't even particular dark compared to shows like Bokurano or Now and Then, Here and There — shows which, for me at least, didn't result in Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy, because they still have interesting portrayals of sympathetic characters.

Guys, please take it to the Madoka thread and post some more pictures here instead.

Also, content: I don't know why I saved this one, I guess the last picture made me laugh for a minute.

Victory Gundam

When I started watching this one, I was already aware that this show was the franchise's record holder in terms of character deaths. Still, the barely cohesive narrative and multiple adult women inexplicably lusting for the 13-year-old protagonist strained my sanity quite a bit.

No time for a template, so:

What I watched.

What I expected.

What I got.

There's a Watched/Expected/Got in this somewhere, but I feel like making it would have people clawing at my throats.

Do it. I promise there will be no clawing.

Okay, I probably shouldn't have said that right before finals. I'll just give the condensed version right now, and I may make the full one later on.

I actually wrote something more comprehensive about the show a little while back. I can link to that as well if anyone actually cares.

[up]What's wrong with the Giant Alien Flower in 00?
Lazy and pathetic.

The giant alien flower looks like a giant banana peel in space. They shouldn't have made it yellow, and they could have been much more creative with the design. Fractals are cool. Needs more fractal.

Anyway, more WE Gs since I'm too lazy to make MO Ts for the other thread:

Done. Replaced all links with posters' names. Please check for correctness/consistency.

I might post one for .hack//SIGN soon.

.hack//SIGN: image link

Explanation: Expected fantasy MMORPG action plus what I knew about the game's effects crossing the internal fourth wall into the setting's real world. Got a series with slow, mystical Noir-like presentation (it is a Bee Train series with a score by Yuki Kajiura after all) that was very focused on solving the mystery of what happened to Tsukasa, whose being trapped in The World was by far the most important premise, while actual features of The World were largely unexplored.

Negima.[1] The sad part is I knew the entire time it would genre shift, and it still blindsided me lol

After just recently finishing 11Eyes, I was very disappointed.

In my defense, Black Butler doesn't look like a shonen action. XD At ALL.
