Gamers! [Anime]

Post by bomaye on Sat Jul 29, 2017 8:48 am

It's an anime about a bunch of fucking gaming nerds. Loners, hidden gamers, former gamers who are now cool kids. It's definitely written by someone who is actually a gamer, there's references to real games (and I think an actual real game did show up), and a lot of best lines are things I've actually heard real gamers say (it makes me fucking lol). Episode 3 just came out yesterday I think.





Ep 3

Spoiler:

- Karen's psycho-stalking him and he doesn't realize it x)
- "Let's start by talking to chicks who like the games you like." [His face: Let's not.] GOD DAMMIT rofl
- Oh my god, the new girl is so adorable, literally shrinking
- "The Game Club is way too glamorous for us." rofl
- THEY SAID DIFFERENT THINGS TO EACH OTHER
- And now they're fighting because they have different tastes. This fucking writer gets it
- "We're lonely gamers with inflated egos, we can't compromise on anything." FUCK
- "It's what you'd call relationship drama." This show just kills me.
- OH MY GOD THAT FUCKING ENDING :ROFL:

This is so wonderful rofl

Ep 4

Probs the least interesting ep

Spoiler:

It's a little funny how Karen's ruining her life over this fucking nerd but I don't think the joke was strong enough to last a full episode nor was that stuff about a game being fun and about winning all that interesting of a point to make

I thought I'd posted about E1 here, but maybe it was somewhere else. Anyway, I'll post this one here!

E2:

-the opening animation is a pretty cute idea (did E1 not have an OP? This is the first time I've seen it Shrug)
-That bento Shudder
-that random infodumping all over the popular guy out of enthusiasm for the game! But why's Keita trying to hang out with classmates all of a sudden, couldn't he have done that at any time? They're not really showing why the change or properly making it feel like one of those weird moments when somehow the time's right for people who wouldn't otherwise have anything to do with each other to connect.
-I'm not interested in men Laughing
-PERSONAAAAA
-Karen is so awkward it hurts, how was she ever the cool girl??
-Keita's so guileless and open, you'd kind of worry for him in a different show
-Tasuku's outburst
-Wow, did that push Keita's buttons Uh-oh
-Pink-haired girl liked him back when he was a neerrrd! Self-image shattered!
-it's interesting that all the haircolours are dyed instead of it just being the norm/unacknowledged that people have crazy hair like most shows.
-Wow, Karen... does not crush like other people crush Shocked

Sometimes it seems like all the reactions and outburst don't get enough character development and leadup to feel natural, or that it's not quite high-energy and over-the-top enough to just skip to the big reactions,  it can feel a bit like a kid randomly smashing Barbie dolls together to make them kiss shake their worldviews. There's enough nerdfeels and awkwardness that rings true for it to get by, but I'm not sure it's a very good show. Having fun watching it anyway, though.

E3:

-"That game was terrible" "Yay, you played it, how was it?"  Laughing
-99999 and that sound effect Laughing
-Tendou melts into dust, and then he walks all over her rofl
-That girl really is starting a breakdown Uh-oh
-Hoshinomori shrinking down to nothing at being talked to
-sitting at opposite ends of the enormous bench, struggling to come up with a few sentences and panicking when they make eye contact, oh god the awkwardness
-Frantically waving her arms to ward off an invitation to the game club Laughing
-bonding over snubbing the game club, I 100% bought that
-"she's less condescending and more like a friend than you are" rofl
-they break it off over having a different opinion, this is too fucking real
-"we're lonely gamers with nothing but our inflated egos, we can't compromise when it comes to games" rofl
-When you'd rather mediate in a gamer argument than interact with your girlfriend, it's probably time to break up Uh-oh
-It would feel pretty unconvincing how Tasuku's all over Chiaki without showing us anything about her that would make him fall for her, if it weren't for the fact that he seems like he wants out of his relationship so badly he'd fall for absolutely anyone else just to have a reason.
-the scene of pink-haired girl lying on the floor deflated, colour-drained and making weird little noises cracked me up for some reason. Poor girl.

I wish there were a little less relationship drama, I'm not especially rooting for anyone to get together and it all feels a little random, but holy fuck the awkward nerd shit!

Yep. It was definitely written by someone who knows Grin

Gamers 5

Spoiler:

- She fucking hates Keita for his tastes rofl
- Ofc they're secret online friends
- "I hate him more than your favourite idol being in a drama because the agency asked for it" God damn
- He starts cackling evil-y because he came up with a solution rofl
- "It's common to want to share your opinions with someone, especially if you hate them, isn't it?" Oh my god rofl
- Of course he's a rabid fanboy of her games
- God Hoshinomori is so adorable.
- Oh my god, they think Tendou is cheating with Uehara
- "I would've never guessed Uehara-kun was such a player." rofl
- Chiaki in the window seeing them hold hands, I'm start to love how everyone thinks everyone is macking on everyone else rofl
- OH MY GOD THE THINGS HE SAID ABOUT HER WHEN CHIAKI ALREADY THINKS SHE'S HIS GIRLFRIEND
- The bad end of the blonde dating sim is that SHE FUCKING KNIFES YOU rofl
- "Dating sims aren't real" as Amano is trying to plug his ears rofl

E4:

-if your alarm goes off at 5:30 am, your life's already not magnificent.
-that motivational poster before story really makes you wish for her to hurry up and have a breakdown just out of sheer boredom
-so, the moment you sleep late, your hair knows you're not perfect anymore and stops playing along, huh Side-eye
-the way she grabs his arm and then freaks out and randomly sticks her arm up in the air like that'll help anything Laughing
-his face before drinking the durian juice Laughing

Definitely agree that the joke wasn't funny enough and the fun vs. winning insight wasn't meaningful enough to support an episode. I worry a little that this show doesn't actually have enough going on to fill a whole season's worth.

E5:

-his shout physically flying across the road to hit pink-haired girl Laughing
-the "they hate each other and don't know they're really friends" and cutesy matching nickname reasons is pretty tiresome, but at least Tasuku finds it as painful as I do. It felt totally real to have them fight over that disagreement to begin with, but carrying it forward as a relationship drama obstacle...  Sleep
-getting them to talk to each other b/c you want to argue your opinions with someone you hate rofl
-"were you always so creepy" rofl
-they keep acting like Keita's idea that you should have fun playing/making games is something mind-blowing and revolutionary Neutral
-Aguri makes me sad (except for the little squeak noises she makes when she's been slain, those make me laugh  Lurking/sketchy )
-Tasuku laughing crazily to himself playing a game that's out of money Laughing
-covering his ears to not hear that dating sims aren't like real relationships rofl rofl rofl
-he doesn't realize he's already hanging out with Karen, that obliviousnessss

Some funny bits and a little more of that real person-ness, but I get pretty bored of romantic misunderstanding cliches. It needs to step it up.

Spoiler:

- Hoshinomori is truly maximum levels of adorable
- "Run away yourself" Holy shit rofl
- Still learning life-lessons from dating sims
- "Amano-kun is being played by a normie!" rofl rofl rofl
- All these psychos with their plots and laughter
- I really like all these voice actors, the fucking screaming all the time, especially the scream that ended the episode (especially when he fucked his line up) rofl
- It's veered too far into relationship stuff though, we def need to get back to the gaming. Espec because I just don't buy Karen would ever be into a guy like that that much.

E6:

-"I hope he gets on a helicopter made by Capcom" Laughing I find Chiaki a really generic character, even more so than the others so far, but her totally deadpan game-related-wishes hatred of Keita does make me lol
-Dissing Aguri while she's listening in, ouchhh
-w-why is Aguri spouting the Konami code? Is it her version of BSoDing or...?
-"Here, where your boyfriend cheats on you left and right" Laughing/ouch!
-So he'll hear "life's not a dating sim"  from Aguri, but not Tasuki  Wink wink nudge nudg
-Thinking he still needs Tendou to recognize him as a human being when they've already been hanging out, he is literally just not taking in new information about the situation from what actually happens.
-Honestly, if I had to root for any couple, I'd root for Keita and Aguri, they actually get enthusiastic reactions out of each other, there's a little chemistry there imo, more than the cliched setups he has with the other two girls
-Chiaki deciding Keita's being played by a normie and has to rescue him rofl
-If Tasuku cares whether his girlfriend is cheating on him or not, maybe he should stop constructing increasingly crazy scenarios and maybe, you know, interact with his girlfriend as if he likes her for once Disapproving
-Each person's thought processes and laughs getting crazier than the last Laughing
-Dating sim girl makes the top of his friend list Laughing
-he accidentally asked her out rofl

Pretty funny episode, but yep, definitely wish we'd get back to the gaming.

E7:

-"I have no idea what you're talking about but I'm glad this terrorist is changing his ways" Laughing
-and now he thinks Karen only said yes to help her and Tasuki keep a secret relationship going. It was funny when it was getting ridiculously over-complicated, but we need to move on from the misunderstanding plot
-that four-layer drink looks awesome
-four-layer drink tastes bad Sad
-he actually asks her for a date, and I don't even think this one was a mistake!
-she goes into karate-chop pose when she's surprised Laughing
-saluting each other Laughing
-they do kind of make a cute, panicky couple
-rental swimsuits??  Ewwww!
-he thanks her for wearing a swimsuit rofl
-she makes up rules for splashing in the pool Laughing It's hilarious the way she tries to create order to cover up having feelings.
-and then they both realize they're doing it wrong
-No girl in the world would freak out at another girl running towards someone she knows when she's being hassled and take it for a sign they're into each other, no matter how insecure or how much she thinks there's a secret romance there. The situation would be 100% obvious to her.
-"what is dating, anyway" rofl
-Mario Kaaaaaaaaart!

What's wrong with talk about Fire Emblem?

-the guy in the background freaking out and fleeing when he sees her in the aisle Laughing
-Keita wimps out of giving a recommendation
-oh god, she's totally going to fall in love with him, isn't she
-Yup, there she goes Twitch
-this is getting convoluted, yuri-girl is Chiaki's sister and suddenly has a crush on the guy that Chiaki hates but also is unknowingly the guy she games with, and also has some kind of rival thing with the girl that her sister thinks is using the guy she love-hates...
-Wait, WHAT??? Why are we in some kind of future wedding between Aguri and Keita watching everyone else be miserable?? rofl
-the game of half-life rofl
-Tasuku's the biggest dork of all of them
-"how could you have a baby now?" Laughing
-this is hilarious how awkward all the spots they land on are. And agonizing.
-"discreet? I'm just doing it like normal" rofl
-he's still saluting and calling her "sir" rofl
-Aww, Tasuku and Aguri finally work things out
-Finally the nicknames come out
-"it was the tragic sight of a truly hopeless girl" ...or rather, a truly hopeless girl's boobs, according to the camera Razz Such tragics!
-they actually got down the weirdness of playing board games when people are losing and acting like it's all in fun but really it's getting sort of tense
-Poor Chiaki, though

E9:

-One "I like it, it's chill like always" makes her feel like she has to keep making games through a ton of negative comments and not even enjoying it. It was meant to be heartwarming, but it came out kind of sad  :/
-trying to talk herself out of her feelings by thinking the universe is using a cliched plot twist. She's not wrong...  Lurking/sketchy
-"wholesome exercise" Wink wink nudge nudg
-her computer's too crappy to watch a video? How's she going to play the actual game??
-Chiaki's not very good at tsundere'ing
-Man, everything Keita thinks just come right out of his mouth in a stream-of-consciousness ramble, no filter there. If he had more personality, it'd be an endearing trait, but none of the characters in this feel like anything more than cut-outs, so it just feels more like this is how they think an awkward-but-endearing character should talk.
-It's refreshing that Keita seems to have just gradually mostly given up being enemies with Chiaki b/c they actually get on well, without any dramatics or forced plot twists to get there, it feels natural and makes their relationship more convincing, they just kind of get each other.
-the "don't look!" "no, actually, go ahead and look you pervert!" banter with the bras hanging to dry made me LOL, and again it felt more genuine than a lot of their insult/arguemtn-banter. (Also, that's 100% what happened at my place when I didn't have a dryer, I was always forgetting to take the undies down when people came over Laughing)
-she chickens out and says it's the sister, boo Sad
-Poor Tasuku, he's as sick of the misunderstanding drama as I am
-the logo is well-designed? The logo was not where the camera was focusing  Wink wink nudge nudg
-thinking 'sorry' to Karen when he buys the dating sim rofl
-Konoha is really bad at living two lives (or 3 lives, I guess, two of her own and then her sister's), but at least she's trying hard?
-"while I was happily buying adult games by myself" rofl

Pretty good episode, some good laughs and the character interaction was better than usual imo. I still don't care about any of the characters at all, though, which is not good 9 episodes in, I'd kind of be thinking about dropping this show if it weren't for the fact that 9 episodes in I feel like I might as well see it to the end.

E10:

-"...as long as you have a love for someone who has a love for gaming" Laughing
-his internal monologue there sounded more like he was plotting to murder her than to fix her love life
-isn't "you have a girlfriend (who you treat like crap)" a good enough excuse, Chiaki??
-Professional Rejector thinks he's calling her to ask how to break up with her Laughing
-she says she likes him and he just silently hangs up and is like 'fuck my life with this adorable girlfriend'
-YES! FORGET THIS STUPID LOVE POLYGON, GO PLAY STARSPACE OCEAN!! Shiny/thrilled (this actually made me go look up the latest one, reviews weren't that great, though Sad)
-even though it was just chickening out on what he was really going to say, he gets suuuuper-into it Laughing
-Boy, lying on the floor clutching his favourite game to her chest, Chiaki's really got it bad
-Yes! At least decide what you want! Little sis is the only sensible person in this entire show!
-Aguri has the worst luck in this show, getting found by some random old bullies we hadn't heard anything about till now and getting bullied for joining the gamer's club that she doesn't even care about Sad
-YES! WAY TO GO, AGURI!!
-Aww, she's still sad about Tasuku. She's got enough confidence to stand up to bullies and walk off laughing,  she needs to use it to dump him for someone who actually likes her.
-Karen's got the "my boyfriend ignores me for other girls" blues too.
-The show seems to have forgotten that Karen's supposed to be super-serious about gaming,  what happened to her club and the time she spent gaming, that all of a sudden she doesn't get that Keita's going to spend time on games? I feel like the writers don't really see Karen as an actual character with a consistent personality and a life outside her crush, they're just using her as a plot device.
- "Shut up, cheater" Laughing
-So Aguri's the only one he actually cares about? Though, to be fair, she's also the only one who actually asks him to take time out for her, everyone else is just kind of putting themselves on the backburner and then being sad about it
-Everyone just kind of "awww"ing at Aguri and Keita fighting. At least that's one part of the cheating-misunderstanding stuff they seem to have figured out.

- Of course each pairing things the other pairing is cheating on them
- Those nerds went through the "Give Up" Exit
- That feel when you'll never sit on a bench while blushing Chiaki tells you to stop looking at her ;_;

E11:

-this is one of those shows where people spend a lot of time talking about how great the protagonist is (or sometimes how terrible, but usually it kind of adds up to the writers trying to make us feel they're great deep down inside without having the skill to directly convince us)
-OMG, these people need to stop shipping everyone with everyone else and just focus on what they want.
-Especially you, Tasuku, do you even like Aguri or do you just not like the idea of being dumped?
-I mean, how are you going to show how attached you are when you'll basically pick anything over being around her?? That's not attached! Gah!
-Karen's idea of an indisputable fact seems...interesting Wink wink nudge nudg
-"deserves to go fall in a bucket toilet" wtf rofl
-I always thought double dates were meant to avoid the awkwardness of being alone with your date when you don't know them that well and aren't sure you can carry a conversation just the two of you, not some kind of next-level date thing? They seem kind of weird to me, but clearly I'm missing something.
-h-higher-level than marriage or childbirth?? What exactly his he planning to do on this double date??? and Karen's "no, that's impossible" Laughing
-He didn't salute before hanging up Sad
-Love that drab mid-game town vibe and its exquisitely balanced halfassedness rofl (oh look, Karen's back to being a gamer)
-VR's in its prime now, what???
-Uglyhara rofl
-their hp drop whenever the other one responds Laughing Honestly, if they're going to sort out this love polygon in a way that doesn't leave anyone out, the only way I can see to do it is if Karen and Konoha end up dating, they'd better step it up on that ship if they want to get there this season Grin
-they knock out Keita in one hit Laughing
-those teacup faces Shudder
-Poor Karen, her boyfriend ghosts on her and won't even answer her call Sad
-"I shall someday make that man a slave to my overwhelming charms" Shocked Where did that come from??

Spoiler:

- What kind of backstory is this? Laughing
- "No flirting!" "Then why did we even come?"
- Hoshinomori not thinking she's still qtpie in normal clothing
- The rule is no flirting, so of-course Amano and Aguri start splashing each other
- "Games aren't useful for anything" Someone should fight her right now
- It's a gamer's trip, of course
- "Put a Ring on it" DLC
- Agonizing event x)
- "I'm plenty fun free-to-play."
- "Games are real shit." rofl
- Yes, all gamers are masochistic deviants
- When the human hero and heroine turn into fish and panic

I guess that was the last ep.

Overall I think it started strong and the relationship stuff was fine as an arc, but then it kept going that way instead of gaming stuff.

E12:

-wtf is with this beginning?! Final episode of the season and they're starting on a totally different tack, with a character that was barely on screen so far?
-how did he accidentally buy that game thinking he bought a different one?? Like, it says right on the cover what it is!
-"For modern humans, living such barren lives, gaming's not a waste of time" Laughing
-Aguri calls us all out for the level-grinding masochists we are  innocent  
-Aguri and Tasuku gazing into each other's eyes romantically as a loot box rofl
-"I'm plenty fun free-to-play" Laughing
-"I get it now! Games are real shit!" rofl rofl rofl
-explaining why she likes higher difficulty levels turns into a discussion of her fetishes rofl
-jeez, this show isn't even trying to pretend that it's not staring
-"deviants who get together to stare ecstatically at unfair game-over screens" rofl
-...suddenly turn into fish and there's a huge panic?? Am I missing something here?
-another heartfelt "wow, even though gamers complain, all we can do is pure-heartedly enjoy playing" bit. Neutral These speeches of Keita's are never as insightful or meaningful as the writers seem to think.

Funny how they swerved and spent most of the last episode on talking about games instead of the relationships, it's like they suddenly remembered what the show was supposed to be about.

Well, that sure was a show. Neutral Overall there were some fun gamer recognition-y bits and some laughs, but it didn't seem like they really knew what to do with a show about gaming other than sit around and talk, and they didn't have anything else compelling to say or very interesting characters, so I'd give this one a solid meh.
