Okay, I'm from Washington State so I can get away with this joke and nobody can get mad at me for it:

Animegatari's has gone farther off the rails than Amtrak.

Thank you!  I'll be here all week.
I'm just like you, only smarterô.

That's one way to derail a thread.

I thought mods were trained to stop this kind of shitposting, not cause it.

12 (END):

Poor Aurora.  Like the Childlike Empress in The Neverending Story, all he needed was a new name to stop the Nothing.  Well, after going off the rails completely we now realize that all of this was just the prep stage for the anime the anime club was making.  Because that's how meta we are.  We're deep into meta.  We're metaing the meta.

Trying to do a rating or a critique of an anime that is essentially a love letter to everything fun about anime and a lament of everything stupid about anime seems a little weird.  Critiquing a critique?  That's way too subversive for me.  I'm not that good.  SO I wont bother.

>show is originally meant to be a generic slice of life about an anime club
>characters got cut, certain traits and name changes occurred
>they felt the show was too typical and wanted it to stand out in the future
>change the show
>incorporate the changes made to the show and weave it into the actual plot of the show
>literally incorporate the disagreement over a character's name (Aurora) into a motivational tool
>Implication that the world was anime all along, the characters just think that their world is the real world because that's what keeps it stable and prevents it from falling apart
>when the world reset, it went back to the original version, cut characters were returned and Aurora who was added in later was removed (except in the spot of being created as a character for the anime they were making)

This was fun

Irregardless, this is functionally stupid because **** Minoa. She doesnt deserve to represent fans; she doesn't represent ME.
Oh, I see.
We are all just a bunch of autists.
Be we Creator
Be we Consumer,
we're all just dumb ****s.

This was just a bunch of bullshit.
Sure there was no plot prior but how did we arrive here?
Like, it wasn;t even meta
...
it was just dumb.

Though I will say, at no point, was t uninteresting.

Overall?
w/e
5/10
Genuinely offended Minoa represents "true fandom"

There was never even a payoff with the Dad.
Ending on a "gokkun" scene with resident, out of place, fanservice character was quite great.

She only represents normalfags trying to get into something niche. Even these characters are too "anime" for me to really think of them as representations of anything observable irl.
