Let me start by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed Asterisk War while watching it. In retrospect, I think I only liked it because there wasn't much else airing last season that I loved. Now that I have ERASED and Prince of Stride to watch, well, I've basically forgotten about Asterisk War.
Youtuber DigiBro decided to pick apart every reason Asterisk War is horrible. And I can totally see his point. There's 7 total videos. I'll link them all - watch what you will!
Part 4: What Are Cliche Characters? (and why do they suck?)
Part 6: How To Screw Up A Sci-fi Setting
Part 7: Building the Worst Protagonist Ever
So. Yeah. This guy really hates Asterisk War XD
I get his point. He's genuinely of the belief that some kinds of LN adaptations & generally crappy generic anime is ruining anime as an art (which I can see), but I don't know if I agree.I mean, I enjoyed watching the show while watching it, even if I was totallllly aware of the boring aspects & didn't love everything. i still enjoyed it, but I'm really not very picky when it comes to choosing shows. Mostly, I was intrigued by the magical aspects, not the actual plot or characters.
