I tried /a/, I really tried, but I couldn't even make it past episode 15.
The flat characters, the sterile dialogue, the poorly handled drama, the dated animation, the...everything. I just don't understand how anyone could find it entertaining.
When you compare it to works that occupy the same genre space such as War and Peace, Taiko, A Song of Ice and Fire, etc, it's just so fucking inferior that I just can't bear to watch it. If you're looking for epic war/political drama there are so many better things out there to watch and read. To each his own I guess, but if something forces you to endure hours of tedium before you can extract even a little enjoyment from watching it, then as far as I'm concerned it's shit. Am I missing something?
