change depends on the irrational ones

anonymous asked:

I feel like you about H!E last episode and I am happy I found someone who is frustrated like me about that scene, I actually feel like I was betrayed (not only by the studio but mostly by the original novels author)... s1 is where the show is at for me and Kumirei will always be IT for me.

Same anon… sorry I will explain my take a little… kyoani did not do what I feared (that was in the final novel) but I feel still frustrated… the first novel was Kumiko/Reina but then the author switched the focus and novel 3 was more Asuka/Kumiko… but still that scene was so hard to watch for me… and then I go here and people are… happy with it? Then I saw you and I calmed a little because I was not alone in this, so thank you I feel better :’) sorry for the rant in your inbox

Oh thank you! It makes me feel less unhappy to know there are more people who actually think the same about that final. I have nothing against Asuka, Kumiko or asukumi, but all that was shown in the last episodes were very hard to see and forced af. 

I love her development through the first season.

I will not talk about the novels because I have not read them yet, except for one or another spoiler, I’ll only talk about the adaptation made by KyoAni, which until the end of his first season was good. It closed very well, the “problems” were solved properly and my beloved Kumiko had a remarkable development in each episode. In conclusion, it was a very good first season, and each character had an appropriate participation on certain occasions, it’s easily recommended and enjoyable to watch. 

This scene was good af.

The biggest problem comes already in the second season in which everything begins to change or, in one way or another it “stagnates”, the problems of second year girls were not very attractive but at least they explained things we already wanted to know since the previous season, the resolution was fine, but I can’t say the same thing about the Asuka arc, because from here it is that the characters begin to act in a very different way.

Protect this smile no matter what.

Reina’s character is completely destroyed, rendering Taki-dependent and forcing her emotions whenever she finds a chance, doing terribly irrational things to the point that it’s no longer funny. Kumiko on the other hand continues to change in this season too but in a way that I didn’t like at all, it seems that now she’s a spice fairy godmother who knows everything and can do everything, is always in the most opportune moment, knows the problems of half the band, and if that wasn’t bad enough, he becomes someone who can only say things by screaming and shouting things that don’t fall completely into character. 

What happened to this girl?

And lastly, the last episodes, which despite not being totally bad, they seemed like a completely different story, it seems that all the first season had been a lie or simply didn’t exist, and now only matters the undeveloped relationship between Kumiko and Asuka. And as I said, it was forced af. 

Beautiful moments that KyoAni killed.

The only good thing about the last episodes was the rapprochement between Kumiko and her sister who, in turn, served to help Asuka in her own problem, even making a very evident parallelism.

Asuka = Mamiko, just in case anyone had the doubt at this point.

Anyway, I feel better now I “talked” a bit about it. I will continue to recommend the first season because simply, despite everything still worth for me, although I can’t say the same for the second season.

Thank you for your message <3 

PD. KUMIREI is the real “otp” and romance of this anime ;^)
