When did you realize
that most content in anime is unrequited shit, and that to enjoy it you have to drastically lower your expectations?
I feel like I have gone through three or four stages of this now after having watched 800 shows or so. Each time I tend to think there's nothing worth watching left and try pick shit up watch a few episodes and drop everything I pick up. Then I begin to lose interest in anime all together for a few weeks to months. Watch some films instead usually. Then I come back to anime by finding that one series that hooks me. Most recently 3000 leagues in search of mother.
After I finished the first 20 shows or so, might be more.
Long time ago though, I realized that myself too.
But still not low enough to enjoy garbage like generic harems and SAO. You need to have standards.
I don't care.
I don't think I enjoy anything anymore other than music (and even that I nitpick to hell) and not liking things.
Shiki is a giant piece of shit written by a talentless hack, by the way.
I'm 22 now. As day passed, I'm realized I'm can't enjoy anime anymore. I'm really kinda sad that If I'm teenager maybe I can enjoy casual anime like SAO or KLK
Maybe I should give up on chinese cartoon forever.
I haven't enjoyed many anime series.
Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night, Tsukihime, Code Geass, Dragon Ball, Claymore, Berserk, Steins;Gate
Slowly trying to build the desire to watch Psycho-Pass and Madoka Magica
I don't browse /a/ as much as I should
It takes quite a while for interesting characters to emerge in an anime and I don't want to waste time by watching shows just to lose an hour
We all are in the end, really
Instantly, but I enjoy the draftmanship of animation and skillful direction more than anything else, so instead of being constantly disappointed, I'm pleasantly surprised sometimes.
isn't it better to remember the single good thing that happened in a week instead than giving relevance to every boring second that passed empty?
When did you realize that
you wanted to protect Sunako's smile?
this was the only smile I wanted to see in that show.
only decent ones in there are berserk and dragon ball, assuming those are the ones you like and not all the anime you've watchedPsycho-pass is disappointing and comes off pretentious and madoka magica is mediocre but not super great like people say it is but considering your taste those two might be up your alley
I hate Japan playing it safe with nearly every show and too afraid to leave the box.
Suck to be you. I can enjoy 90% of airing anime any giving season.I will always find something to enjoy about a series.I avoid trash like SAO though,going that low might kill my interest in anime.
And if a season really is that bad, ican always watch some backlog or read manga.
>it is a high mediocre rating but yuyuyu stirred my emotions and actually made me care for the characters
I enjoyed Madoka, but nowhere near as close as I thought I would(I still don't know exactly why besides that I couldn't care less about anything that happened, the premise and artstyle are great).
I guess I'm gonna give yuyuyuyuyuyu a try
>It's shit for normalfags
SAO is for the worst kind of auists, not for normalfags, you retard.
Haremshit with pathetic and generic characters with forced tragedies and drama that makes you cringe. You have a show like that every season, just not as well animated and in that setting.
The other anon is right. If you can actually enjoy shitload of garbage every season, you'd enjoy SAO too, but you're just hating it because it's popular garbage, not because it's garbage.
Isn't this true for everything?
Aren't 90 % of all movies arguably garbage?
90 % of all novels?
90 % of all RL television shows?
So many TV shows that started great but ended in bullshit...
Our plight is one common to all consumers of media, not ours alone.
Plagues hollywood even more.
Or maybe I'm just fine with a lot of samey shit in anime, but I definitely can't stand the obnoxious and cringeworthy cliches in Hollywood. Every time I go watch a movie it makes me want to hang myself.
The only consistently good movies are depressing dramas, but they're depressing and I don't want to feel constantly depressed.
That being said, I hope generic harems die someday. It's the worst cancer
Did i ever say that? I only enjoy harems if they have interesting characters and non of that generic magic shit. There are a lot of non-harem series that get ignored by most of /a/ every season.
I'm still mad that she didn't got a stake through her cold flat chest
Because S1 had loads of retarded shit in it, They had to save it some how and loads of people like rape.
Which is why we're always stuck in this fantasy harem rot, We need more Trigger KLK effort type shows, Some originals are just really lazy and shitty when they should be something that hasn't been done before.
Her design, voice and mannerisms were adorable, but to think she's still out there killing people to feed herself and perhaps thinking about trying to start a shiki village again somewhere else, leaves a sour taste in my mouth.
That's all I've seen actually, I was pretty entertained by those. I thought I'd love Psycho-pass and Madoka but I'm struggling to get through those shows. My interest was piqued because of the writer on his previous work but I didn't end up liking PP or MM all that much.
I've discovered I prefer some manga more than anime, for some reason. I guess because it's faster to get through it and more focused
I try to watch anime. I wish I loved it more than I do. It's hard to find a show I like and get into, without getting bored and abandoning it a few minutes later. I've waited for the various definitive releases from groups before getting into some, only to watch one episode then forget about the rest
The priest was a fucking hypocrite, the doctor a psychopath and everyone else was either a moron or a coward. The only ones who were half-way decent were the nurse and pic related. The nurse was the only one with some moral backbone and Nao was just a pitiful, emotional wreck at the end, after she went insane from repressed childhood trauma and losing her entire family.
Listen, get the fuck out. the series you listed are typical shows that hint at multiple layers of fruition only to someone with the mind of a teenager. coupled with that wet mope-like nihilism that shine through all what you typed its pretty evident that you're one of those immature guys that search complexity in products of pure entertainment. learn to understand contexts
How was the priest an hypocrite? he and the doctor were the only villagers that did what they truly wanted, disregarding morals and society norms. I really don't get this social utilitarism=absolute good, egoism=total evil mindset
I agree with most of what you said except for the doctor, he was indeed a psycopath but also a cunning son of a bitch who managed to turn the tables in favor of the humans, all because he wasn't afraid of doing what he thought was the greater good, if it wasn't for him the village would be Shikitown by now.
>I really don't get this social utilitarism=absolute good, egoism=total evil mindset
There's no problem in doing what you want except when in doing so you end up harming people, if the monk had sided with the village from the start, many villagers lives could have been saved and Sunako would have been killed, ending everything for good.
>its pretty evident that you're one of those immature guys that search complexity in products of pure entertainment.
I wouldn't put me in that column but I do understand your perspective. I actually enjoyed Baccano! the most, for what it's worth
I see Shiki shit. Thus, I post obligatory, true tale of those vampire bastards.
Reffer to this >>120153648
Vampires are walking corpses that must be purged on sight. There is no morality when dealing with them, as they fall lower than anything else.
In videogame terms, think Nazis. You can kill nazis by a truckload withuot any remorse. Same can be done with vampires.
>There's no problem in doing what you want except when in doing so you end up harming people
but sacrificing others is one of the key survival mechanism for humans. if you say that eliminating shikis was a decision made to avoid being wiped out by another species I can agree completely, but calling a nonhuman thing evil when it only does what is needed for its own survival sounds kinda silly. specially when some villagers acts can be considered much more immoral measuring them with the good and evil meter.
They are evil because they are sentient race preying on another sentient race.
Do you really think humans would keep eating pigs if they suddenly started talking?
Also in the novels, the priest and the loli are shown living just fine through blood bags, so the whole "we cant just drink the blood we HAVE to kill you" is bullshit.
