Dies Irae

Mein Gott.

They decide to open this anime by doing a convoluted exploration as to why the main villain decided to become the main villain without actually explaining why the main villain became the main villain.  This was a convoluted mess of waxing nihilistic philosophies and prophesies and Groundhog Day scenarios and whatever.  The action was awful, in a special kind of anime way that somehow makes even less sense than for a normal anime way, the music was pumping in choruses left and right because that's how you do epic, and whatever.  If this is what they're going to give us for a first episode, then this shit is rubbish.

"I love the world, so I am going to destroy the world!" is the second stupidest villain makeup in the book.  Now they're going to undoubtedly go in a jarring direction by going to our "real world" with our "main heroes" all suddenly having to deal with this interdimensional / time traveling Nazi ubermensch.

You got two more episodes then I'm out.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.

That was actually episode 0, a side episode that happens somewhere mid-plot (I think).

They ran it first just to confuse everybody, apparently.

Either way, it was ****ing stupid.

Speaking of which, you apparently know more about this anime than I do, how ****ing stupid is this going to get?  I can already smell the shounen magical powers battles coming.

Oh. 07 Ghost.
 Even down to the voice of Frau.
Why.
Why can so many shows be reduced to 07 Ghost? 

The few that escape the trapping are just FMA(D.Gray-man, Owari) or Naruto(Fairy Tail,Black Clover).

Ya know, there are infinitely more, I know because I have seen them all, but w/e, I'm not prepared to make a meaningful comparison.

Fun Fact: D.Gray-man has my favorite aesthetic of any anime ever.

EDIT: Turns out quitting half-way was for pussies. I found out what separated these series. It is the edge. Passive disconnected extreme violence is just really entertaining. Apparently.
