Hey sorry if this show is old news to most of you but the thread i found with the search function was closed so here's a new one since i just watched all of this
man, i cant STAND it when someone creates a wonderful premise, populates their universe with potentially interesting characters and relationships, and then completely goes off into lala land before going "oh crap its the end lets end it with whatever!"
Tenjho Tenge is but the latest IP to put me through this frustration, there are many others (in fact i think i'm not alone in saying that satisfying conclusions are a rare treat in these mediums). I could rant about all the things tenge did "wrong" but whats the point? whats my opinion matter compared to the creator's vision, however stupid IMO?
Instead of complaining about Tenjho Tenge i figured i'd open the floor for discussion on these matters as it applies to the anime and manga mediums as a whole. Why is it that we often fall in love with an IP only to find ourselves soldiering on through painfully frustrating content, desperately searching for a glimmer of hope that the qualities we fell in love with are not in fact dead and forgotten by the time the series ends? Why would someone go through all the trouble of creating what should be a masterpiece only to leave the whole thing up in the air or just cut it off quickly and thoughtlessly? Why is this so prevalent in anime and manga?
i hope to get some interesting (and opposing) viewpoints
