So I was writing my rant about Asura Cryin' and Asura Cryin' 2 and I got logged out when I clicked on the "submit" button. I really don't feel like writing the whole thing again, so I'll just stick to the main points.
Watching the thing was a waste of time. The story was so-so and the writing was poor. Romance where guy gets treated like s*** even when he did nothing wrong is not my kind of thing. The guy in question was indecisive and didn't had any redeeming qualities. Other than that I didn't like Nia, but it probably has something to do with my dislike for tsundere lolis (and tsundere in general). The fighting contained lots of shounen cliches, such as sudden powerups and lots of half-a**** explanations. The only reason I kept on watching was because I wanted to know how it ends. I'm a sucker for happy endings, but this one was disappointing (blame it on male lead's indecisiveness).
