Because you're not making any headway whatsoever, and it's just petty posturing on both of your parts. You're both more interested in speaking your opinions than in meeting each other half-way, and nothing either of you say to each other is going to change that. It's apparently impossible for you both to keep the points from getting personal, and that's a problem. When an argument turns personal, both sides lose. So now is the time to walk away from the argument. It's over.

Lol, yeah you just summed up what this has turned into pretty dang well. So yeah, I'm done. I guess I just got a bit more irked over this than I usually do. All the anti-Transformer movie hate I've seen recently on other forums probably didn't help me... >.>

Whatever, I have no desire to continue this argument, which I wouldn't gotten into had I not felt that I was being lumped in with those groups of people who hate anything popular with no good reason.

um..... I know this is random.....

Please read my zero no tsukaima fanfic here.......

http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3717209/...Zeros_Drabbles

Summary: Random drabblings concerning the lives and mishaps of Louise, Saito, Henrietta, and etc. Hinted pairings now and then. Some characters may go OOC, but this is often intentional. R&R!

Did you just try to plug your fanfiction?

Seriously, go to a thread dedicated for such a thing and don'tpost randomly like this.

this anime is actually all about war.
the void mage and her powerful familiar who can use any weapon just by touching it to protect her while she casts her devastating spells...
seriously the sole purpose of magic in this anime seems to be destroy and kill

who thinks there will be another season beyond the 3rd based on the novel? like if the series had to be placed in the novel where would it stand

just an example...(like novel 6 ends with the second series?)...

cuz from the sounds of the novel they think it might be ending soon...and since alot of stuff was cut out ...(im not sure just going off by reading the threads)

Very unrealistic since the points that are missing are actually about character development and some deeper insight and that thing is banned from the anime and replaced by the tit-jokes instead if they would start to include all the stuff they missed they would change the anime significantly.

Face it anime is mostly random tit-jokes all around with some war in the background.

Novels are much more ofcourse but they were going steadily and anime seems to ignore the most serious parts of novels to keep it light.

Besides including some stuff is unrealistic by the plot itself, you would need to bring Wales back again so that he and Saito would have that talk, or let Saito die again but this time it wouldn't be a two minutes "Zomg I was saved by random big-tits elf! Beat me up!" ending...

Seems too much of work to do. The most parts that were cut are now cut for good as you cannot find them place into the storyline again...

So if they would lack the material to finish they will start replaying tit-jokes over and over again, rather than adding the material that was skipped.

While I think the novels are vastly superior to the anime, I think we have to accept that most people were drawn to this series by the anime. I know I'd never known about the light novels until I went looking for an anime like Shana. Many then went on to read more about the novels at baka-tsuki and become even bigger fans. Like it or not, the anime is how ZnT is going to build a bigger fanbase.

As such I really hope they do a good job. This story is one of my favorites currently going and I'd like to see it get more attention than it currently does.

Yes, they screwed up book #8, but they can redeem themselves by correcting some of their mistakes in season 3. At least that's the attitude I'm approaching the new season with.

ROFL that is very true but ill admit it does seem that way for all anime shows...i recently watched and read Dears and although it was a funny series the book was more enjoyable... Im pretty happy i found this show on accident and i was really surprised to find so many fans... This show is actually my 2nd favorite show... I wish i could read japanese so i could read the novels but i cant ... As for the ending... it left me with a satisfied feeling...

Me~

The 2nd season ended at volume 8-9. If 3rd season ends at 12-13, then a fourth season can do the end. Yay~

finally had a chance to sit down and watch both seasons back to back for the first time.

I have two strong feelings about this show.

great character designs.

and one of the most horrible script writings ever done.

I can't say I'm looking forward to season three with all this random enemy character crap they've been pushing on us.

although, if siesta is in season 3 I'm sure I could stomach it

now here are a few complaints I'd like to get out so you can share my point of view some

matilda- strong character design, strong background story, weak implementation. almost offensive even. the first six episodes or so focus on her, then suddenly they just put her in jail and thats it? now shes some sort of comedic lackey for the bad guys? very very poor writing.
vice versa
school superintendent- obviously the head master has hidden techniques. well, in a good story he does, this show, he's just a perverted old geezer. seriously, thats all he is. complete waste, why is he even in the show except to hand out lame tasks for the students to do?

what they should have done: matilda is not really the enemy. she is working with the headmaster in secret to find out something important or test/prepare the students for a major event yet to come.

I'll stop there with the bad aspect of the characters. what I want to talk about next is an even more horrendous problem.

the story.

any anime show that needs to resort to girls being sexually assaulted in order to provoke feelings from the audience is a show with problems. Why even go here? am I watching a horror flick? do I see blood splattered everywhere? then why would I want to hear about this? I did not pick up zero no tsukaima to feel disgusted. I'm not saying we all have to walk around with lollipops, sure, the two or three scenes were minor at best, but you need to decide beforehand who your audience is, and I say it was off the mark.

the BIGGEST problem with the story: why go to war? why? completely irrelevant. pointless. you honestly cannot think of a single thing to write about with 4 hot girls at a magic school? give me a break, even negima was able to at least compose something workable. because of this stupid war plot
#1- the supporting character stories are left behind.
#2- it damages the credibility of the main characters and introduces problems of having to bring in more useless characters.

am I the only person who noticed saito was completely out of character at the end of season 2? it felt like because the story was so weak, they had to change the characters norms in order to introduce some type of drama.

what I liked about the show-
tabitha- needs more tabitha. this character has all the makings of what 'should' be interesting in this type of show. and NO, not tabitha slaying more dragons, needs more tabitha learning to socialize once again.

later on I found I liked the monmon girl. sure, give her more things to be involved with.

being able to go between worlds. this leaves room for a lot of plot devices. too bad it wasn't really used. this includes objects coming back and forth. who new a household blender could be the magical alchemist stone of zarusa.

louise's sisters. yeah they had a LOT of potential. needs much more of them.

anyway, I would say the overall series is only C+ -ish. even though MFI stories tend to be corporate cash ins, I was expecting more out of this series. MFI has made some amazing shows in the past, its a shame this one just couldnt be one of them.

you cant dissect the ZnT story on the anime only. you need some background knowledge from the novels, even if the anime is/should be standalone.
you are 100% right on one thing, even without reading the novels: "great character designs. and one of the most horrible script writings ever done. "

While I want another season as well, I must warn you two that your words are probably pissing off the novel-reading ZnT fans.

I know. I was really pissed as I saw Eragon as film and it was such a crap compared to the book! But I have no possibility to read the novels and I really like Zero. You can hope that the series gets better but it is not right trying to stop it because there are many out there that like it as it is!

Irondragon, when you say you cannot read ZnT novels, do you mean you dont have time or cannot read in enlish? Because as you know ZnT novels are translated in english (not full up till 6 volume right now) but you most definitely can read it.
