But now, let's talk about //Roots.
//Roots is terrible. It has all the symptoms of a crappy saturday morning cartoon when it's quite
obviously trying to be something epic. Sorry, you were way off, stop trying, please. Now let me
further explain these 'symptoms' I mean:
I disagree with you already, but let's see your points.
» A generic retarded opening.
For a supposedly gloomy and depressing show, the theme song sure is upbeat and high-pitched.
Sorry, back up, who said this show was supposed to be gloomy and depressing? You're projecting here. As for the theme song being upbeat and high-pitched, you need to consider that the first half of the series was really cheerful, straightforward, and RPG-esque. The "depressing", relevant stuff doesn't come in until halfway through the series.
Basically, it's a bait-and-switch.
» Lazy animation.
When you're doing a fight scene, DO A FIGHT SCENE.
What's wrong with the animation?
» Corny script-writing.
Did you just have no idea what to make the character say just now?
Instead of complaining and moaning and wasting internet space, how about you actually articulate what you mean? What's wrong with the script? Any specific examples?
Hell, are you talking about the English or Japanese language scripts, anyway? If the latter, it could be a problem with whatever fansubs you were reading or whatever, and the English is acknowledged to be terrible.
» Varied acting talent throughout the cast. (This is partially a compliment (OH MY!))
Most of it was great actually, but Tabby. Tabby needed to stfu.
English Tabby or Japanese Tabby? The latter is pretty great, IMO. I'll give you that English Tabby sucks.
» A generic retarded ending.
Er...want to give any details, at all? Whatsoever? Frankly, it was by Ali Project, who is awesome and so unbelievably befitting of .hack that I can't find any complaint. I partially suspect this to be a troll post.
