I figured now was as good of a time as ever to change my profile picture, and so in the spirit of summer, I give you: Shiraishi (Yamada?) eating hamburgers! What do you mean, that isn’t a topic for discussion? You can discuss that, right? ...Fine.
But really though, has there ever been something in anime that bothered you quite a bit at the time, but upon looking back later you realized it wasn’t that bad after all? What about moments that seemed perfect at the time but seem terrible to you now? For me, I would have to say the ending of Pyscho-Pass (the first season, the second season had different issue(s) entirely). In my original review, I was frustrated with the ending of the show, because I felt like Tsunemori’s feelings of frustration towards Sibyl and the various character developments added felt tacked on and unnecessary, and while I still feel the same way, I don’t actually think those two things really made the ending that bad. For one, my frustration with Tsunemori’s unresolved feelings was a bit too subjective to be complained about in a review in my May 2015 mind, and honestly, the 1984-esque feel to the conclusion is actually a bit more fitting than... continuing the series. Whoops. What about you guys?
