    actually to give some context as to why I didn't mind it, I watched season 1 before reading the manga.

The story was compelling enough for me to try and make sense out of what's happening. Also, I watched the movies around the middle of season 1, and after enjoying those I guess it kind of upped the entertainment value of season 1.

    That's why I wasn't as angry while watching season 1.

    Knowing the story already really changes my perspective though. Like, the biggest thing that's kept me from hating the show is that I didn't know what was going to happen. Now that I do, it becomes really easy to notice the other aspects of the anime, i.e. shoddy animation. Like, straight out of the last arc and the first meeting of guts and you know who after the sacrifice should have been hype, but the Guts vs Zod scene was just so... choppy. Like, has it always been that choppy? I've known since watching season 1 that it was choppy, but goddamn. Idk if it's really gotten worse or just paying attention to it magnifies its effects.


    Anyway, long story short, I agree with you now. Unless you also think the movies were bad, because I'd agree with you on everything except that.

    I take full credit in convincing you to read the manga.

    It's a good enough movie that I don't think waiting another million years for a home release outside of Japan will do anyone any favours. I was lucky enough to catch it at the movies, but I think the only option most people will have it dust off their hooks and don a tricorne when a good torrent comes out.

    I wanted to hop here just to talk about Your Name.

    To begin with, the animation is gorgeous visually. It's so fuckin pretty! I was in awe only with the first 3 minutes.
    And without spoiling anything, I'll say this.
    Premise to this fact, I am not an emotional person when it comes to movies, games and TV shows. With that said...
    I anticipated the ending. I knew what was going to happen. I was ready for it. But the way it was delivered was completely different from what I expected. And it fucked me up.
    It was the happiest 20 min sob of my life.

    Great movie.
