Haruhi is now ten years old.
Will plebs avoid watching it because it's "old"?
For a show that is 10 years old it's animation still holds up to today's standards. (Except for maybe Mystique Sign and the awful CGI) and its still universally loved by most people. That and its also a beginners anime, so i reckon plebs will still watch it.
Do plebs really avoid old anime though?
I mean, Naruto started in the early 2000s and Dragon Ball has been kicking around forever and a half.
Do they really just skip the first few hundred episodes of shows like that until it becomes "modern"?
Speaking of which, what do retarded highschool weebs watch nowadays anyway?
>tfw getting old
is not watching something from last decade a thing?
Whoever avoids it for whatever reason should fucking kills themselves anyway m8
>Avoiding something because it's old.
Why would anyone do that.
>naruto is no longer the gateway anime
It's 13 years old though.
Also, it's not April yet.
Actually this only became the case because naruto is the only shit some countries translate and air but now kids actually know that their pcs can do more than porn and counter strike, times have changed
>Will plebs avoid watching it because it's "old"?
Actually yes. And this is only going to get worse over time
Eventually things that were once considered required watching for any newfag like Black Lagoon, Ouran and Code Geass will be considered "old anime"
Newsflash: Anime is about as niche as video games in the 90s were.
Most kids these days have watched some form of anime. It is no longer your secret escapist timesink. It will undergo the same changes that video games did very shortly.
Evangelion- no one but me
Fate series- 5/20 guys finished Fate/stay night.
Bebop- All of us watched bebop
Monogatari- no one, me included
sorry to disappoint, most of this are just assumptions. 10 of my friends are normie anime watchers who watched like only three anime series, rest have their shitty love stories and stuff.
See this is why some of you faggots shouldn't say "old anime is boring and shit" because eventually someday, some new people are going to start calling your anime old and shit and you can say "no it's not" but in their eyes, it will be considered old the same way you thought.
Pic related. This is only 5 years ago! 5 years and the memories of many of these threads are still in my head
That's just the same with every media anon.
The books we are forced to read in school often seem boringly written and out of date but at the time were selling like fucking warm bread.
TV shows like "Friends" seem outdated and with weak humor if you never got around to watch it when it aired and friends tell you to watch it now.
Many people will tell you to play fucking Half Life, Ocarina of time or other genre-defining vidya. But when you didn't play them back then they just look like shit and even a good story will rarely make them enjoyable.
And with your mentioned Code Geass. I didn't watch it when it was popular and it was always in my backlog. Now I watched the first two episodes and it just didn't have the impact I expected. The whole scene when he gets the Geass and his reaction is just cringeworthy.
I'm not close-minded either you shit eating cockroach. I tried those things and actually enjoyed for example HL 1 even though I played it YEARS after release. Just what I heared from other people, thus saying "Many people". Reading comprehension is hard I know.
Also, your waifu is shit.
Fate is pretty popular in my school, no one has watched or even heard about Monogatari except me ;_;. Bebop comes up sometimes, but the other anon was right, most teens just watch SnK, SAO, Tokyo Ghoul, etc. One Piece and Naruto are still talked about.
>graduated high school last year
>used to chill in the
>cancerous table in the corner that always yelled about shitty anime and Vidya
>Sat close enough to them that I could hear because it was hilarious hearing what they were talking about
>One kid was a small grade 9 (freshman for you americans)
>had a shitty SAO messenger bag
>waltzes into the library one day with fucking pauldrons on
>that he made himself
>his friend asked him what they were
>"well they're for a costume of a sword art online character! My original character!"
>a few days later he came in with two fucking cardboard swords
>he tells his friend his costume is ready etc etc
>comes in next week head to toe in the shittiest cosplay I have ever seen in my entire life
>he changes halfway through the day and carries it around in a bag because he was too ashamed
Wonder what that kid is up to. Or what the rest of them are
>10 year anniversary
>Literally nothing is happening
God is dead.
Normalfags are more likely to see easily accessible shows such as dubs on Netflix. Fate is popular partially for this reason. If a person has seen Monogatari, they've seen a relatively high number of shows.
I think the problem is you're an underage faggot rather than anything being wrong with those things you mentioned.
Don't worry, one day you'll grow up as well and realize how much of a retard you were
>TV series it's self is shit.
But that's wrong, and you fucking know it.
I don't know why people keep perpetuating this concept.
The first season was an absolutely excellent adaption.
Season 2 suffered because of E8, but it was still good regardless.
Not close to "shit" at all, KnK is shit, Haruhi is definitely NOT shit.
I'm waiting for an obscure video tape to preview S3.
There was more absolutely cringe-worthy garbage in the first episodes of Musaigen no Phantom World and Kyokai no Kanata alone than an entire season of most anime from 10 years ago.
Modern anime is hyper-pandering to otaku and only teenagers and braindead otaku themselves find nothing wrong with it.
>Will plebs avoid watching it because it's "old"?
Are you kidding? It's already too old for the casuals who post here. Just look at the KyoAni threads today, literally no one even remembers Haruhi. People barely remember K-On anymore.
I think it's pretty telling how back in the day Haruhi was an example of an otaku pandering show, yet now it looks like the most normie shit ever when compared to modern anime.
Don't let people tell you that Monogatari is somehow obscure.
Plenty of people in my college have watched it, and they're not even anime fans, just normal geeks. They usually watch it because of how "mature" it is. Kinda like why people watch Evangelion or Bebop.
Monogatari is almost entry level now.
And Fate is also popular, though most people have only watched Zero.
>The books we are forced to read in school often seem boringly written and out of date but at the time were selling like fucking warm bread.
Anon confirmed as an illiterate faggot.
