    I love how gigguk is going heavy on the soundtrack. Because anything by Hiroyuki sawano is going to sound amazing.

      @idealicfool To be fair, there isn't a single soundtrack that Hiroyuki Sawano has made that I haven't loved. His work on Attack on Titan, Aldnoah.0 and so on is just fucking awesome

      @Y it's not hard to be after listening to them for a while. The moment I heard their work in the Fak/Strange trailer was like yo, this is Gunna be a banger.

      Well, his videos are analyses, right? He breaks it down and explores what makes it good or bad, what are its strengths and what not. It doesn't suddenly get more interesting, per se, he just lets you see it through another lens, it gives you a fresher look on the show that you might not have had on your own. He's really good at this, which is why I love Gigguk so much. He's so good.

    Re:Creators was god-tier genius, even when the execution occasionally wobbled. The premise and the true deconstruction of it all made it one of the most unique entertainment experiences I've ever encountered. To this day, it's one of my favorite anime. I wish there was a way they could make more of it, even though that would make no sense.

      Yeah and when you know that hiroyuki sawano acknowledges it you know it's some good shit.
      I wish that one day it could become a movie with disney tier of money. Even if it becomes a weirdass battleroyale it would still be insanely entertaining.

    After watching your video essay I had to check this anime out, and I wasn’t disappointed. I really liked this anime because it shows us writers that our characters can exist outside of our head, inside our hearts in our own mental meta space. Brilliant video man.

      As a person whos been trying to write a book its true. I got into DnD and my first time being a DM I decided to homebrew a session in my world. It would be a fun way to introduce peopld to my world and such. The best part of it was that in doing this session with them, it caused me to do more world building I never originally intended.

    I’m so glad someone is talking about this anime. Discovered it with a friend a couple years ago and the great writing and awesome soundtrack sold us on it. It’s very clear it’s a show that is made by writers and shows a lot of the mental crises that writers go through, and many times it gets so meta that breaking the fourth wall isn’t even close. And also with a very tragic but believable narrative behind all the genre clashing. I wish more people would see it, because I also loved it.

  • Laurian Delauney

    I discovered this anime by accident while searching for one of those « re » shows and everything. Honestly, one of the best discoveries I’ve made in such a while. The opening song got stuck in my head for months, and I’m so happy that Gigguk’s doing a vid on it. Truly something that went under the radar and would have deserved more attention!

    Surprised to see some Re:Creators love, but always glad to see it. As someone who has a deep love for stories and fiction, with them having changed my lif, this story is incredibly personal and hits core every sense. It's no narrative perfection, no, but it has a factor to it that makes it that special one-of-a-kind that I'll always love as a fan and creator of similar stories, and I feel those who appreciate these stories will find something to enjoy as well. Thank you so much for this video, it always brings a smile to my face seeing Re:Creators love from someone else!

    What a blast from the past. Thank you for covering it again and just reinforcing the idea that a 7 or 8 that I love is worth more than a 10 I didn't enjoy watching. This anime was truly something else, a 10/10 in my book, and as someone who used to write a lot back in high school and immerse myself in stories, hit different.
    I remember watching this back in 2019 and have no idea of what made me seek it out initially, but I loved it. I tried to get others onboard but they'd be turned away by the dialogue after episode 1. Even online it would be difficult to find someone who truly liked it; they'd always talk about its flaws more than what they liked about it. I recognise that it has its flaws but still felt like it was magnified for no reason other than "yeah I know what I'm talking about as a seasoned viewer of anime".
    Oh and the soundtrack. I was addicted to Sawano after this anime and watched Aldnoah:Zero afterwards (RIP) for more of him. Every track in this anime was a 10/10 with Layers being a 11/10; the meaning behind the lyrics being the reason why it's higher on my list.
    Kudos to the crazy people who came with this and the ones who let it be executed. I want more shows like this, I'm sure they're out there but I haven't found them yet.

    This video is a godsend, I discovered Re:Creators during a very low point in my life, I was heavily depressed, unsure about the future and what I could do to improve my situation. I remember trying to cope with it all by drawing daily, studying the works of my favorite artists, trying to understand what appeals to me creatively. I'd watch 2 episodes a day and the more I waited, the more it ruminated in my mind, the beauty of creation itself, the inner-workings of the characters we create and the philosophical discussions which arise from the stories that exist, as well as the importance of character interaction. Sota's story felt incredibly real, his inner-struggles in trying to justify his own creative spirit, and the looming threat of consequences from his past staring him in the face. Each of the various creators had their own philosophies for creation, each one we got the chance to explore felt incredibly relatable and nuanced. To top it all off, Altair is everything I've ever wanted in a character, she's my favorite character ever made. To me, Re:Creators, despite its flaws, is undoubtedly my favorite series I've ever watched. If I hadn't discovered that first episode when I did, I don't know where I'd be right now.

    After having checked Re:Creators from seeing this video, I quite liked it. Yes there was so much talking which could've been reduced, but also I wish they spent more time developing the characters as some didn't feel like they had a lot of depth to them. Also found Magane to be one of the most interesting characters, and found it weird she didn't appear in the last ep, but by far Altair was such an interesting villain with real movies. Overall a great show.

  • Vintoplad
    Vintoplad 2 months ago +7

    When this anime first released, I almost skipped over it without even giving the synopsis a read.
    I believe it was when the 2nd to last episode aired when I suddenly had a change of heart and threw the first episode on.
    Episode 2 was when I felt an emotion I can only describe as "This is it. This is the one."
    And that it was, I don't think I'll ever come across another piece of media I love more than Re:Creators.
    My 2nd place will be crowded, but 1st is sitting comfortably.

    I enjoyed Re:Creators when it was airing. Not sure how much I'll still enjoy it through a re-watch, but from what I remember, it definitely had its moments. The concept reminds me of the movie, "Last Action Hero," but in anime form. Also Cautious Hero slaps

    I just watched it because of your video (i finished it), i LOVE it. The concept is so interesting, i rly enjoyed the interactions between the creations and the creators (and with the other creations), it has good music, entertaining action, overall rly good and became one of my fav anime. Though, the explanations of what is happening were rly confusing and nonsense, and way too long.
    I rooted for Altaïr the whole time, and i'm pretty satisfied with how she ended up (not the best ending by any mean but still).

    I just finished watching this. Its good. But I am gonna add one thing. When you watch it, it can cfeel somewhat unremarkable. I thought about it a bit and come up witht following conclusion: A LOT of the character interactions are so natural for how the characters are written that it just feels like a regular conversation without anything interesting going on, additionally because the interaction fits so well for the characters, it is also easy to predict how said interaction will go, making it less exciting. That being said its a good time.

    Oh. Someone really know about this anime! I have watched it very long time ago. Today, a couple of hours before this video i remembered it because of its opening song "gravity wall" that i caught on my music playlist. So i remember that this anime like: "It was a grand idea, but with very very rough realisation and too much 'people on the internet are scary' final plot twist" In the final there was incredible moment where this "monogatari type" caracter didn`t returned to her world because of her personality. So yes. It is an incredible anime. But... there is needed some "recreation of re:creators" because of so much things it done wrong. I also read one or two novels of similar idea... So i think... If i become a god of someones little imaginary world, i must implement some of re:creators idea.
    (What a strong dejavu... I feel like i already wrote comment similar to this under video like this...)
    (Is this ever gone be read? please be read it would be fun)

    Just started watching and honestly all the dialogue really helps set the stage, these characters are having freakin existential crisis and are dealing with ethics and philosophy. The dialogue hightens the drama and internal dilemmas which make this show poppin. Thanks for the rec!

      I really liked the show, but always hated the mc. And despite what gigguk says, still hate him. He gave a perfect analogy: it's a Shinji-ass boring mc wasting our time and overall screentime being indecisive over the same thing for over half the show.

    Huh. That ED-esque last 10 seconds was a real surprise and somehow hit like a truck, despite being nothing but some OST, voice-lines and a montage of action-filled zoomed-in attacks.
    And must say each thing was well-picked (somehow was touching despite being nothing :p), good editing!

    Never saw it when it aired and questioned watching. To me it sounds Animator vs. Animation but Anime.
    Or like Castle Town Dandelion the family plot is there of a competition but the down time each character arcs work well only it's what ifs with anime characters in the 'real' world and to me that sounds cool. But to me the action moments lacking for people sounds like people want action figures fighting level of ridiculous how else do you build situations with talking not everything is particles and attacks on screen for their inner highs. XD
    The situations of 'these situational what ifs and other down time events' to me does sound interesting then action. I don't care for action scenes that much so I only cared about it in certain anime. Animegataris used it's references and elements well I think the ending was weird but still.

      @fck peace Ah a fellow Omniscient Reader too! While it's not the best, but It's like a 100x definitely better than the the Solo Leveling *(too overhyped ngl, it's actually just some power-fantasy crap for power-obsessed edgelords to jerk-off into)*
      Actually Omniscient Reader is also a similar concept to Re:Creators too *(Concept: Reverse-isekai; Characters from a fictional piece of media getting transported to our world)* but ofcourse the difference is that Omniscient Reader's Viewpoint does it better than Re:Creators.

      I mean for an Isekai anime, It's one of the best Isekai *(I mean, it's a REVERSE Isekai so i'm not entirely wrong)* Animes ever, definitely better than today's modern Isekai trashs.
      *(God I wish there are more great Reverse-Isekai Animes like Re:Creators. Oh wait... that's right! **_more generic Medieval era-based w/ Fantasy and RPG-styled system with an OP Protagonist being sent by that world by some funni Big Metal Box on lots of big wheels! That's CLEARLY what we need!_** damn)*

    Re:Creators is a decent author being frustrated by garbage authors. I loved Re:Creators but I was already too deep into writing and reading novels to think more about the show than it really is. It's mostly well made with some fluff and I would be interested in what that author worked on after this but not so much so as to actually look it up.

    This is Garnt's like 10th time trying to get us to watch Re Creators and I think this video sums it up so well. He addresses the shortcomings but highlights the strongest portions and convinces you that you should care. The show is good, he's right it's a 7 or 8 with unforgettable moments that you remember more of the strong moments because the highs are so high more than you may remember the individual seemless details in a 10/10 masterpiece. Garnt as always a true banger

    Hey, guys! I need help from every anime lover out there. When I was a kid I remember my older sister watching an anime about the main protagonist who can switch genders and has red eyes that made people scared of her slash him. The main protagonist has a master who like took her-him in and has three ladies who are like fairies who serve him, he accidentally hit her-him on the head with a bowl (or was it a vase) that was intended for some guy and at some point in the story he gets amnesia. I wanna know what the title of that anime is if anyone knows it. Please! I really need help!

    There's an idea for a future video. Gigguk have recently released a video about Katawa Shoujo game. But there's another story of another non-Japanese indie dating simulator. The game is called Everlasting Summer. And I think that the story of the creation of this indie game is really interesting too. Maybe, some information about this game and its development can be found in English. And, just like Katawa Shoujo. Everlasting Summer has its roots in another imageboard website, though it's not 4chan. Everlasting Summer is available on Steam, by the way, and is translated into English, French, Spanish, Italian and Chinese.

    I just finished this anime today, I remember knowing about it thanks to a critic of some other show that mentioned magical girls and used Mamika as example. I also like to draw and found myself touched so deeply by many themes in this story like I never did before, all the good memories of fandoms, fanart, fancharacters, fanon and theories and also the struggle and sometimes darkest part of seeing others with such a great talent sucess while you are left behind was just so raw and charming I just loved it. Needless to say I cried a lot.

  • PerishForYourSins

    I know exactly how Gigguk feels, I'm not sure if many remember this but a personal favourite of mine is deca-dence. I loved the work building and the over aching plot focused around perseverance and redemption. I loved how the two protagonists clash in personality but eventually learn from each other. The action is great and the animation is smooth. It's a real shame it wasn't popular.
