Ok, let me again try to identify the problem as I see it:
Most YMMV pages I see marked with Anvillicious
are also marked with Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped
, and if not, (considering I'm visiting pages of stuff I have experience with, typically) I usually end up marking one or the other to the point where they have both.
For one, the Sugar Wiki
that attaches to some SANTBD is basically just a list of Main Themes
, so that's where they ought to be, IMO. It wouldn't be hard to just graft the one page on to the other with an especially persistent person knowledgeable of their Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V functions To my knowledge, there is no Anvillicious Darth Wiki
page. Actually, it's worse than that, we have people complaining about shows (and that comes with a lot of guaranteed Complaining about Shows You Don't Watch
) on the main Anvillicious page, whilst we regulate the people who liked that part of it to the Sugar Wiki
. But again, these are both people just listing Main Theme
, and commenting on not necessarilly the explicit nature of how that theme is delivered, but how they perceive it to be delivered, which I do not regard as Trope Worthy
A good example: Neon Genesis Evangelion
is regarded as seriously Heavy-Handed
right? Well, to be perfectly honest, in comparison to modern anime, it's far less direct. (See something like Fullmetal Alchemist
*). Also, anyone who has ever read The Bible
through and through will tell you it has about as much subtlety as Speed Metal
. NGE doesn't even come close to that.
Y'see, this is one of the few tropes I can think of that has everything to do with audience perception, (that, unlike say, C Mo A
, Narm, or And the Fandom Rejoiced
, isn't marked as explicitly such) rather than what we can objectively observe about the work itself.
- For note, I like the show.
