is it ironically retro and intentionally terrible?
Because there's a big difference between vaporwave and just retro.
People who listen to vaporwave actually despise the 80s and 90s, they cherrypick what they find the most ridiculous about them and attempt to create an aesthetic that's as repulsive as possible while still retaining residual traces of their appeal.

There's no way you can accidentally make something that terrible and the maker of the show hates modern anime, I'd say it fits the bill.

No, because it can't exist unless an incredibly bitter and uninformed director decides to make a parody of old anime so that he can sound deep without actually investing efforts into it.
That'd be pretty hard to come across.

Speak for yourself.
>>
>>114683401
if you don't despise them, why do you listen to vaporwave instead of RETROWAVE MASTERRACE, you neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie?
>>
>>114683208
Because it's not a fad - it's lasted long enough to be considered legitimate. It was always an offshoot of plunderphonics, which is well-recognized already anyway. People calling it a fad are just complaining about how a "new" kind of music they don't like is getting popular.

It's a variation on plunderphonics, which is music made up entirely of samples. It focuses on funk, soul, and synth-pop, generally from the '80s and a bit into the '90s. The aesthetic is maybe more '90s-influenced while the music is more '80s-based. So other than the "'90s music" bit, >>114683633 is generally right.
>>
>>114683621
No, it sounds better than Kavinsky. Kavinsky's stuff is soft, mellow and unimaginative.

Com Truise is a in-between retrowave and vaporwave.

There will never be a vaporwave anime. Just go watch some retro series from the 90's or some shit.

>In other words, it's influenced by anime.
that's not how influences work. being influenced means that you're passive, that you merely receive a language from somewhere else. And while it's true that vaporwave artists rarely go through the effort of actually researching their source material in depth, it's also true that they actively go out and look for it themselves because they think it serves their purposes. If you come looking for it, it can't be an influence.
>>
>>114684281
sounds better than most vaporwave I've heard.
>>
>>114684383
It's more derivative than influential, then, but the point remains - anime is (in some form) a source.
>>
>>114684383
So It Girl is influenced by anime? Clearly Pharrell didn't go looking for it!

But that's wrong. And 99% of lolicore is generic garbage. Goreshit was a genius, though. Pic related is the best lolicore release ever. Nekophiliac is good too.

>>114684479
Goddamn, this video is fantastic.

I don't think anime is self-aware and depressed enough to be vaporwave. A vaporwave anime would be like, the most self loathing harem anime ever, interspersed with random color shifts and sound fuckery, and the whole thing looks like it was recorded from VHS.

What the fuck? I thought there were mods who lived in Europe or something so we would actually have people to look at the reports in the middle of the night.

vaporwave isn't supposed to be good. See, they have this "accelerationism" thing going on. Basically, by making shitty music, they think that they can speed up the degeneration of western culture to the point where it will collapse within our lifetime and a healthier culture can take its place.
