Please read my first message in the nisekoi thread
If there's ever an anime where I wouldn't mind an original ending it's this one, you could totally tell the story in a couple of cours (or hell maybe even one) instead of dragging it out like the manga is doing.
I like the plot setup,but since it's been popular jump won't let this end and are dragging the hell out of it (when other posters say that this lends itself well to fillers thats because at this point the manga itself is full of fillers).That's why I hope the anime gets to do its own thing.
But even if they do that it won't differ much from a whole lot of other rom coms except for being well done IMO so if I knew someone new to anime who hasn't seen a bunch of rom coms I'd recommend it to them (and I myself don't care if something has been done a 1000 times before as long as it's well done,I know not everyone is like that though)
Oh and also I have this huge grin on my face when you say you think you've got AoT figured out, the actual plotwists have yet to come,they might not even come this season,there's clues in the episodes but I've seen no anime only watchers notice them.
The same warning signs that Guilty Crown and Sword Art Online gives me. Epic potential premise, completely destroyed by asspull plot twists. Frontloading a lot of drama at the start instead of developing it.
