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 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4: What Are Cliche Characters? (and why do they suck?)

Part 5

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.

What are your guys' thoughts on this series?

I pretty much agree with everything you said @hikaymm even the guy from the YouTube videos haha Idk if it's just me but I like anime such as this one, even if the plot is like most other anime.
If he hated it so much why did he watch it
I might watch it and see if I like it but to me everyone has an opinion to like or not like a anime
I like it! I like about every anime I watch, It entertained me and i think it was great , thats just my opinion!,
@TheAnimeGod @BlackoutZJ @crimsonsasuke I mean, I liked it too, don't get me wrong (I even said so in the card), but after listening to why this guy dislikes it, I can see why! Doesn't mean I dislike it, though. IHe just has different taste & opinions on what the studios should be working on! I'm still pumped for the next cour of it :D
