can (or should) a bad OP and/or ED affect the quality of a show, or at least your opinion of it

would you say a good OP/ED boosts a show, or are they of any consequence at all

not really, i think it can only enhance it

if it's bad then it's always skipable, to say the least

ive been watching the newest pokemon anime, sun and moon

i actually like the departure from the norm. rather than follow ash throughout a region, most of the plot is centralized in one place and it's a lot more easy to pick up (it's pretty much slice of life, which im a fan of but i know it's not for everybody). it's more focused on the main cast rather than introduce a new character every single episode

the art style does take time getting used to, but it's a lot more expressive than other artstyles

not to say this anime is perfect but it's a nice little guilty pleasure

A good one can boost it, a bad one is easily skipped.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

A bad OP/ED doesnt really affect my view of the show as i can just skip them.  I dont think it should affect anyones view of the actual content.

A good OP and ED does make the show more memorable for me though. Its even better if theyre used once for dramatic effect in the show. Ive picked up a few great bands and artists from good OP's which is nice.

Spoiler
Outlaw Star (Sunrise, 1998, three episodes) The only things I'm getting from this show that I can't get from Cowboy Bebop are dumb anime tropes that I despise, so this is naturally a miss for me. 4/10

Silent Möbius (Radix, 1998, two episodes) 3/10

Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoiyo!! Masaru-san (Magic Bus, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Burn Up Excess (Magic Bus, 1998, one episode) 1/10

All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (Production Reed, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Bomberman B-Daman Bakugaiden (Madhouse, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Tekken (Studio Deen, 1998, completed) 3/10

Twilight of the Dark Master (Madhouse, 1998, completed) 3/10

Ninja Resurrection (Phoenix Entertainment, 1998, completed) Apparently people hate this thing because it was marketed as a sequel to Ninja Scroll despite having nothing to do with it. I haven't seen Ninja Scroll yet, so I didn't have that preconception going in. Therefore, I didn't think it was that bad. Didn't like it, didn't hate it. It's just kinda there. 5/10

Cardcaptor Sakura (Madhouse, 1998, three episodes) Complete trash. 3/10

Initial D First Stage (Studio Gallop, 1998, three episodes) I kinda like the aesthetic, ignoring the shitty character designs. 4/10

Oh! My Goddess: The Adventures of Mini-Goddess (OLM, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Knight Hunters (Plum, 1998, two episodes) 3/10

Lost Universe (E&G Films, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Legend of Basara (Unknown studio, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Magical Stage Fancy Lala (Studio Pierrot, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Neo Ranga (Studio Pierrot, 1998, two episodes) 3/10

Princess Nine (Phoenix Entertainment, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Brain Powerd (Sunrise, 1998, one episode) Attack of the Evangelion Clones—it starts here, apparently. 1/10

Akihabara Dennou-gumi (Production Reed, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Dimension Movement of Nazca (Genco, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Android Announcer Maico 2010 (Unknown studio, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Sentimental Journey (Sunrise, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Alice SOS (J.C.Staff, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Futarigurashi (Studio Bogey, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (Aija-Do, 1998, completed) 3/10

Fake (Unknown studio, 1998, completed) 4/10

Queen Emeraldas (OLM, 1998, one episode) 2/10

If I See You in My Dreams (J.C.Staff, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Very Private Lesson (AIC, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Geobreeders: (File-X) Get Back The Kitty (Chaos Project, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Psychic Force (Unknown studio, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Virgin Fleet (AIC, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Serial Experiments Lain (Triangle Staff, 1998, completed) Delightful. See my 1998 list for the full praise. 8/10

Nightwalker: The Midnight Detective (AIC, 1998, three episodes) 3/10

Super Milk-chan (Unknown studio, 1998, one episode) 4/10

Getter Robo: Armageddon (Brain's Base, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Spriggan (Studio 4°C, 1998, completed) A disappointment. 4/10

His and Her Circumstances (Gainax, 1998, completed) Surprising. This is the first straight romance show I've not only seen all the way through, but did not make me want to kill myself at any point during. Anno just knew what he was doing in the '90s, I guess. 5/10

Orphen (J.C.Staff, 1998, two episodes) 4/10

Bubblegum Crisis 2040 (AIC, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Gasaraki (Sunrise, 1998, six episodes) Certainly not my kind of show, but in the interest of being as objective as possible, this is one of the better mecha shows I've tried. It's certainly no Eva (even though it really wants to be), but it's incredibly refreshing to see a more realistic and grounded take on the whole super robot thing. If you're into this shit, I wouldn't turn you away from it. 6/10

Master Keaton (Madhouse, 1998, three episodes) Not as immediately compelling as Monster, despite being written by the same dude. 4/10

Devilman Lady (TMS Entertainment, 1998, six episodes) Biggest disappointment ever—a grim reminder as to why this medium is so inconsolably shit. Fucking fuck. 2/10

Generator Gawl (Tatsunoko Production, 1998, one episode) 3/10

Flint the Time Detective (Group TAC, 1998, one episode) 2/10

Kurogane Communication (APPP, 1998, two episodes) I'd like to watch more of this show, but I can only find dubbed episodes online. Meh. 4/10

Super YoYo (Xebec, 1998, one episode) 3/10

Super Doll Licca-chan (Madhouse, 1998, one episode) 2/10

St. Luminous Mission High School (Triangle Staff, 1998, one episode) 1/10

Popolocrois Monogatari (Production I.G, 1998, one episode) 4/10

Blue Submarine No. 6 (Gonzo, 1998, completed) Pretty cool, actually. I'll talk about it more on my list. 6/10

Kashou no Tsuki: Aki Kyougen (Unknown studio, 1998, completed) 2/10

Haven't watched blue submarine in a minute but I remember being compelled by the shark man's struggle with his humanity (or lack thereof).

Also, twilight of the dark master is one of the first anime I've watched, pretty eye opening for a 13 y/o.

Verb is taking me through a trip down memory lane.

I watched A Silent Voice last night. It was actually really sweet. It's about a school bully who makes friends with a deaf girl at school. I don't usually watch that sort of thing but I enjoyed it, probably why I liked it more than you did, heh.

i'm someone who's had to apologize to a lot of people over the years for being shitty to them, so the film resonated with me on that level

i just thought it was so-so in every other respect, and it was also very long

You gave My Hero Academia a higher rating than Jojo, and because of that, you need to be fucking purged from this fucking realm, you brainlet. Hurry up and rewatch the first two parts, then the next two, and sit your ass down until October and watch part 5.

I just watched the series so, your choice.

Actually, after watching some trailers, the movies seem to be several episodes of the series stitched together into three hour segments. There doesn't appear to be any extra content.

I honestly don't know why you feel as strongly as you do about it, and going over your review of it, don't feel like we watched the same thing at all. The only thing that I can really acknowledge among your complaints was the artstyle (even if I 90% disagree with it).

What made no sense about the plot? Part I is very straightforward and simple (negatively so) and Part II is strange and admittedly has so weird retcons and workarounds, but in a template makes perfect sense.

Voice acting is a bit subjective; I enjoyed it most of the time.

What characters did you find so dull and annoying? Outside of Jonathan being a Kenshiro clone and Speedwagon's power of narration, I can't think of anybody particularly dull.

verb's hate seems to be directly proportional to the popularity of an anime

and jojo has a very vocal fanbase so he probably sees it a lot while searching for other shows

not that i can speak for him or anything, mind you

I think everyone can agree that the JoJo fanbase is annoyingly loud, but he's done a few other shows with very loud fanbases and he didn't drop down to 0/10 on them because of that. While I don't doubt it's a part, there's more to it than that.

sub iirc, but I don't really think it matters in this instance. He doesn't like Japanese and the dub isn't good.
