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?
Ok, just got to episode 24 and as soon as i saw Tomoya and grey hair girl (Cant recall name, im fuming rn) I immediatly got pissed. Im so confused why this episode exists right when Nagisa and Tomoya's relationship begins. I'm so angry and confused that my head is beginning to really hurt now
So, if you've been watching Aggretsuko, you can probably recognise how relatable it is. The characters are all a part of this adult 9-5 ecosystem. I can't help but root for Retsuko and her quest to find happiness and fulfillment in her life.
Currently, we've made it to season 3. I have to get something off my chest here. So-- spoilers ahead.
The whole dynamic between Inui, Haida, and Retsuko. I don't feel good about it. This entire time, the series has been spotlighting Retsuko making hard decisions for herself. FFS she has turned down life as a billionaire's sugar baby and rockstar fame-- both whilst finding herself in dire financial straits. It's also been, on the side, building up Haida to be the underdog who is bound to win the girl in the end.
I just can't help but feel like Retsuko doesn't want that. Or maybe she does? She's turned him down twice. Inui was totally into him, and it can only be assumed Haida was interested to some degree. I love that Inui had grace in finding out his heart wasn't in it. But where does that leave Haida and Retsuko? He basically forced himself in at the end of the season there. I'll give him points for the confidence, but Retsuko literally told him she wasn't okay and didn't feel safe.
So where does this go from here? The season ended on what might have been a cliffhanger. Do you think she will give things a try with Haida? Will she stay or ultimately end things with him? In a narrative sense, I expect the writers will give the prize to Haida. But damn it if that doesn't leave me disappointed. I guess I just don't want her to 'settle'. It seems like the wrong outcome for a character who has such big dreams.
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.
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?
