/a/, what do you want out of romance? What makes you happy? What was the best you've ever seen?
I finished three infamous series in the last few months - Steins;Gate, Eureka Seven, and Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water - and all I have is a bitter taste in my mouth.
Not really a romance, but the interaction between Okabe and Kurisu was always pretty important, aside from being cute. Even when the tone shifted, the show only got better. I teared up, same as everyone else when Kurisu was erased at the end of 22. The problem is everything after that. Okabe had to give up his love to save the world. He had completely given up hope. He had completely resigned himself to his fate. Then fate itself drops in, hands him a script and a set of tools, and lets him fix everything. He doesn't do anything by himself whatsoever. The whole ending is
>Hey brah, I know you've given up hope, but here's some deus ex machina. Go save your love.
Is that good writing? Did that make you happy?

I'll be making a thread to contain these comments on the new Rebuild of Evangelion trailer that was JUST released moments ago.
Google translate below:
I'll write what I remember anyway. Chorus of the song for a mystical feel (now god) not read track new Eva ?eye front, multi- Eva Unit 8 paper lantern festival? Ish pink color was blue eyes may Asuka wearing hat with Badge? Wears a red plug suit. (POI character hat store next to Eva silhouette, Kaworu) dark-haired woman surprised. New character? New character short girls, hair. Pink hair? (Second from the left mushroom silhouette store maybe) Nerv mark ragged. Shogi. Dogfight? What is flying sky. Unit 2 + be flying boat. I may be wrong, so many memories. Kaworu Shinji Mari Yu Lei, also cut version of Nico Nico notice. It was a terrible quality. Please see roundup for Eva Store festival paper lantern and silhouette.
So we've got EVA08, new characters, ruined NERV signs, aerial combat, and more. New chorus music. Asuka with new hat. (buy now on tf2)
Surprising lack of Rei, fuck you too Anno.
I'll be heading to sleep now, so I can work out the disappointment via REM sleep.
