Im not a watcher of series but everytime i see a commercial for some series they ALL seem the same. Its like its the same actor everytime, same type of "plots". Even if the genre is not the same. Its like this globalisation weve seen the latest decade (s) has made us all the same ???? Same humour, same type of communication with others etc.

They all seem so formula-driven and generic. Its exactly the same with movies,series and music with alot of popular art these days it seem.

Its one of the (many) things that puts me off concerning globalism and metropolitan trends since it inevitably leads to a sort of standardized blend.

its paradoxical whenever I talk to someone who's very pro that stuff, they profess to like the many cultures and diversity, and i agree, but don't seem to grasp that the globalist/metropolitan construct is defacto slowly killing that off, one generation at a time.

Just watched the one dubbed episode of S4. Is it me or has the animation changed, it didn't feel right?
It has changed a bit, before it was produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G. now it's MAPPA - it honestly doesn't bother me much. I still think it's close enough to the "original anime artstyle" from the previous three seasons.

I won't spoil anything, but the next episode is f*cking awesome.

Apparently Wit Studio decided to pass the torch after season 3. The time crunch put on the animators is insane and there was only one studio who said "they would think about it", and that was MAPPA. Every other studio said they couldn't handle it. Wit also felt comfortable with MAPPA taking over.

Yeah I knew about the studio change and i'm wondering if in the back of my mind it gave me some sort of bias or forced me to look for problems that are not there. But something didnt feel right to me and I don't know what, like the animation execution (less the art style) was poor/weirdly done. Is it just me or are other people saying similar things? The opening intro sequence is terrible animation and concept compared to previous. S3 had those beautiful vibrant skies, with lots of detail...this one looks like something made by a university student. Anyway maybe im looking into things too much
