jaxter0987 Posted April 12, 2013 Share Posted April 12, 2013 Just finished BTOOOM!, Angel Beats! Koichoco. I had medium expectations for BTOOOM! since I like battle royale-themed stuff, but I felt the ending was very lacking. As for Koichoco... I was disappointed. The romance was very dull and bland. The political drama was far more interesting than the romance, and even then the only thing keeping me from completely enjoying the political drama was the fact that it takes place in high school (I'm just getting tired of the high school setting in like 90% of anime/eroge lol). But at the same time I can't but think that maybe this is a reflection of Japan's own politics. I'll just wait for the translated game to come so I can play it and see what I missed out from the anime. As for Angel Beats, it would've been so much better if it was 24-26 episodes. I'm trying to play catch-up with a lot shows from last season /sobs Honestly, the main selling point for me in the anime was like you said the political drama. I could forgive the dull romance since I honestly felt that it was just an addition to the main story rather than the main story itself. I enjoyed Koichoco a lot and I'm impatiently waiting for the translated game. Then again, I can't say I've watched enough anime to start becoming tired of the high school setting. In all honesty though, I don't think I'd ever be tired of the high school setting but we'll see when that time comes. I felt that Angel Beats was fine as is. Sure, they might have been able to stretch the anime to 24/26 episodes, adding more to the show, but what I liked about the show was how it told the story. If it was 24/26 episodes, the pacing would feel a lot slower in my opinion (which I guess is what other people want) and I don't think the ending would have the same impact on me otherwise. I'm also trying to "catch up" on last seasons shows as well. I wasn't exactly behind per se since I was waiting for the shows to finish airing but there were A LOT of shows last season that I wanted watch.
