They Say This Anime Season Is Disappointing

The Summer-2024 (July-September) anime season has been the subject of strong criticism from Internet users in Japan, who have expressed their discontent in various forums and social networks.

A popular comment points out that despite being one of the most anticipated anime, the first episode of "Oshi no Ko" lacked excitement and did not meet expectations. In addition, it is mentioned that the three P.A.WORKS PRODUCTIONS ("Tensui no Sakuna-hime", "Na Nare Hana Nare", and "Mayonaka Punch") seem destined to fail, and that the series "Shikanoko Nokonoko Koshitantan" was met with a resounding "what the fuck is this?".

Other netizens express skepticism about the quality of the yet-to-be-released anime, wondering if there's anything really worth it. One user commented that compared to "Shikanoko Nokonoko Koshitantan," any other anime seems better, noting that the level of disappointment is such that even the "My Wife Has No Emotion" series is barely spared from the harshest criticism.

Some comments highlight the lack of clarity in the plots of the new anime. "I don't understand what they're doing," said one frustrated viewer. The general perception is that many of the current series lack interest and originality.

Viewers have also sorted the anime into different categories, indicating which ones they find promising, which ones they think will be boring, and which ones they consider to be outright trash. Among the most criticized are "Shikanoko Nokonoko Koshitantan," "Wistoria: Wand and Sword," and "Suicide Squad Isekai." One user specifically mentioned that the "2.5 Dimensional Seduction" anime did not live up to expectations, especially in its first few episodes.

In addition, it was mentioned that anime such as "Shoshimin: How to Become Ordinary" and "The Elusive Samurai" have failed to capture the attention of the audience. One user claimed that he expected "Shoshimin: How to Become Ordinary" to be similar to "Hyouka," but that expectation now seems unlikely to be fulfilled due to the difference in production studios.

"Shoshimin: How to Become Ordinary" received some criticism for its narrative style, while others commented that the series "The Elusive Samurai" could be interesting if it maintains the quality of its animation in battle scenes. However, the doubt about whether this will be possible persists among Internet users.

Finally, some users have chosen to wait with more interest for the new release of "Code Geass: Rozé of the Recapture" on Disney Plus, considering that the rest of the anime season has been disappointing. One viewer expressed his disenchantment with the "Shikanoko Nokonoko Koshitantan" anime, saying that it is so bad that he would rather not watch anything before that.

In summary, the 2024 summer season has been met with widespread criticism from Japanese netizens, who have labeled the season a "failure" due to the lack of anime that truly capture their interest and excitement. The expectation now falls on the premieres that are still to come, with the hope that they can redeem this disappointing season.
