>>36870>I haven't watched Stella no Mahou, nor will I honestly, sorry but I've seen enough moe to last a lifetime.
That's fine. I may be remembering it through rose tinted glasses anyway. further, life is way to short to waste on things you dont personally enjoy.
> This is a problem I have with many moefans, they (maybe you or maybe not) take this position as if I believe there is NOTHING good in moe, which is simply not true. Not only that but they pretend as if I think their shows have NO themes or something of the matter.
i hear you, and i get this. i know you are able to see positives within the genre, and i know that you are merely arguing that they do not outweigh the negatives. i know you aren't trying to be an elitist and i know you aren't dismissing it out of hand.
>the problem is that the moments of interest are so thinning scattered throughout, and upon reflection you realize something important… the best parts are when it ISN'T being a moe show for a few seconds or whatever they allow
this is the important point you refuse to acknowledged. just because you don't like the moe moments doesn't mean they are worthless. they are worthless to you, not to me or other moe fans. WE enjoy them. just because YOU don't doesn't mean they are worthless. this is the problem with your logic, you continue to claim moe moments are worthless because you dont like them. though you have many valid arguments about flaws and stupid shit being frequently present in the genre (which i recognize applies to many shows) your argument for why the moe flavor itself is without value is based on your personal preference and taste. moe moments taste bad to you, so you say it is objectively bad.
>In the same way the battleshounen parts of battleshounen are the worst moments, why in gods name would I ever care about watching a predetermined fight with no real stakes since I already know the end result? In fact watching fights scenes in general is a waste of my time unless there is animation close to something like Akira or Redline to keep me amazed at the workmanship of the animators.
moe cuteness moments and fight scenes are often just fan service. your arguments on this point always just boil down to yoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
