Has anyone seen this?

I enjoyed it as a concept but I found the MC a bit of a letdown. I understand she acted her age-- willing to lose her sense of self over a boy she liked. But it wasn't relatable in any way. The way she was up in his face at school was obnoxious. He could have been polite about letting her down. But instead he just bullies her more. And likewise she was unwilling to take a hint. These characters have zero chemistry.

The ending was terrible. I don't think it sent a healthy message.

 

That he suddenly decided he loves her enough to follow her into death and risk his very soul for her after another cat tells him what's going on is absurd.

There was opportunity for so much more depth and sympathy for the characters, but it just wasn't working for me. So I found it disappointing. 

What did you guys think?

There were definitely parts that were offputting & the characters weren’t endearing.

@Wedgy It's definitely a disappointment to see an anime try so hard to follow a plot and make it as relatable and realistic as possible. But when it's oblivious as it was, and she still felt for it, it almost defeats the purpose of a decent plot. It's pretty offputting to see a male harass and bully someone, let alone a female to the extent that he did. 

To say that they weren't meant to be would be a huge understatement.

It's unrelatable and unrealistic.

The way of going about it for them may work in an anime world, but in a realistic environment,  they've set themselves up for failure.

My brother and I started this on Netflix and literally went "Is this a studio ghibli movie" and I was like LORD I HOPE NOT.

I thought the concept it of was interesting, the lore behind the cat spirit world is something I could get behind. Does kakashi turn into a cat with his anbu mask?

The issue was the was basically just a stalker movie. The girl stalked the boy at school, out of it. She spent all her time watching him so of course she was the only one that really understood him. If the movie spend maybe just a bit more time exploring her family and her place in it, and maybe have her mother(s) play a bigger role into her romance life rather than just two women bickering over the same child and husband. I don't know if it was the right call as that might be perceived as more realistic having a kid just turn her back on her family and lose herself in her romantic interest to escape her emotions toward her family, and the adults being too caught up in their own mess to really care for the kid. But instead of using that to deliver a message the movie was like "dats how it be sometimes" and left it at that. I think this movie had a few good intentions, but lacked a lot of delivery and better character development.

      I don’t watch one episode at a time, I watch the whole season at once.
      I waited for AOT 4 to complete, downloaded it and was into its complete amazing aura...Eren had eaten Warhammer Titan, Levi just took Beast Titan.. Survey corps were doing great.. 
      And then.... and then Sasha died....
      that Gabi i hate
      i just can’t take it. It feels sad that i wanna talk to someone. Someone who understands..

      I suppose spoilers for the newest season apply. First off, I am not talking about Eren doing morally questionable deeds like killing civilians. What I am talking about is his personality change. 
       
      What happened to him?? He had always been so full of fire! Now seems like a depressed goth kid sitting at Denny's drinking coffee and discussing nihilism. Where is the Eren we know from the series?!
       
      A very similar charachter shift happened in another series I kind of liked called Jyu-Oh-Sei (minor spoilers for that series ahead) I mean, compared to Attack on Titan Jyu-Oh-Sei is a pile of crap, but still. I liked it okay for the first half. But that's just it. When there was a time skip in that series the main charachter went from this feisty little Devil into a mopey, moody, lame, non-entity. I am starting to feel similarly about Eren. Is growing up equivalent to losing all assertiveness?

      I just finished watching FMAB and I must say...it was one the of the best series I've ever seen...all the plots have been very satisfactorily completed and most of the stuff is very logically explained...the only question that is bothering me is why did Alphonse need to sacrifice his soul to give Edward his arm back? I mean he could've just stopped Father from harming Edward. I get that he was injured and all...but what about the others? All of them were simply standing there doing nothing but screaming at Ed to run away...any one of them could've used simple alchemy to stop Father. What Alphonse did was like a last resort... something that could have easily been avoided if any of the Alchemists would've stepped in between saying they won't let Father harm Edward. Later we see that Ed literally punches Father so that would mean that Father had already become weak. 
      That's all...No hate to this anime or this forum. I'm sure I'm missing something here...I just need someone to point out what. Thanks!

      I mean, sure, we can leave the discussion of what's good and bad for another day. However, I'm curious to know why

      I haven't read the manga so no spoilers there please, but I was so shocked over the reveal! The anime really doesn't hold back on what it means to be a carnivor or a herbivor and it's just so sad and emotional and I have no idea what to really feel of what every character is going through! You really do feel for everyone!
      I wasn't sure if I was allowed spoilers in the first post so I tried to be vague even if this seem to be a spoiler corner for currently airing animes o.o Can you tell I'm new XD?
