As a follow-up to last week’s question I have decided to do a series of 2015 related questions for the next couple of weeks as we wrap up this year and head into the next. So today’s question is a mirror to last week’s: which was the dumbest 2015 anime you watched that still managed to be highly entertaining?
Again I will leave it to you all to determine what exactly makes your given anime so “dumb.” So please explain in the comments just why you made your choice.
My choice for this one is going to be Senki Zesshou Symphogear GX and the reasoning is plain and simple. Most of the characters, the villain and the plot where just stupid for this, the show’s third season. It didn’t help that much of the plot was a retread over things previously covered and the focus on “daddy issues” that was in the forefront of this season’s drama made you believe that all parents in Symphogear have no idea what they are doing. But in spite of all these negatives I just tossed out, I couldn’t help but enjoy the absurdity I witnessed each week, as it is really difficult not to smile when you see a character suplex a space shuttle or have two other characters combine powers to create a flying buzz-saw enhanced tank with pincers made from scythes.
Last week’s question:
If you have any ideas for future questions of the week feel free to leave them in the comments, otherwise, see you next Friday.
