Angel Beats! had a lot of hype behind it due to the Key connections, some slight KyoAni influences, and just generally good promotions. That's not something that will be easily replicated.

Yeah, I'm now a bit worried about PA Works.

It's not just Glasslip, it's the overall trend.

Of P.A. Works last 4 anime shows, 3 have been bombs, and the other one was just middling (NagiAsu).

I largely agree. Soulelle's analysis, if accurate, does a lot to explain the show and what it was aiming for. To make sense of the show as it were. But the analysis is far from easily self-evident,...

But there's anime shows that have a supernatural element or two, but are nonetheless focused on the MCs feelings and problems, and are not exactly "sci-fi as a primary genre" show. Ever see Ano Natsu...

Why? If they are "superpowers", then the way Touko and Kakeru reacts to those powers manifesting themselves makes perfect sense to me. In fact, speaking as someone who was a comic book fan in his...

The Kakeru/Jonathan comparison is inspired, and does seem to fit pretty well, so that probably explains the importance of the chickens, at least. Good job by soulelle there.

But "the fragments of...

I have to admit - I'm pretty disappointed in the ending. I thought they were building up to something more concrete than this.

This episode felt very random for any episode, but for a finale, it's...

My views on the latest episode are very close to Pell's.

Very interesting and well-wrote episode. Deftly handled role-reversal for Touko and Kakeru. But the timing of the episode is pretty...

I want to thank Kaoru Chujo again for his in-depth and comprehensive posts explaining why he thinks very highly of this anime. I'm not in 100% agreement with him, but I've gradually come closer to...

Yeah, the 1st of the 3 possibilities I listed there is probably the most likely one. Most PA Works shows I've seen have a bittersweet vibe to their ending, and so it would be consistent for Glasslip...

I really don't see the Yanagi/Sawa comparison. I know it's only a small part of your post, and some of your other points are well-stated, but this particular part honestly startled me a bit. :heh:

I get the criticisms that many people have made of Glasslip, but I think the show is probably getting a harsher reception than it should.

I think the show looks good, sounds great, and displays a...

Well, if Sachi does in fact have a terminal illness, then the way she's approaching Sachi and Hiro (at the same time) would make more sense to me. She could be thinking "These are the two most...

His criticisms are not that strongly worded.

Aside from that, "unfairly harsh" would be holding a show to a higher standard than you do other anime shows, and without good reason. But I've read...

Touko/David or Touko/Alone

I don't see any other Touko possibility working well at this juncture. Too much time has been focused on Touko/David, and too little time on alternate Touko pairings. ...

At around 10:00 of Episode 2, Touko has a vision in which she hears her own voice say "I want to see the future, too".

Then at 21:55 of Episode 2, Touko says "I want to see the future." and she...

Agreed. If this is all just a fancy way of showing how they feel, then that will honestly seem pretty lame to me given how much it's been focused on and built up over the past two episodes.

No, that's not "pretty obvious". Your idea is possible, but it's also quite possible that it's more than that.

And there are reasons to think that these visions could be premonitions.
