sure except toradora is a shit-tier romance anime for pimple faced teens who want to fantasize about running away and falling in love with some girl they will literally never be able to talk to in real life
>oldfags went to 8ch
>normie newfags, /v/, tumblr, and reddit took over because of KLK, SnK, SAO, Log Horizon, and Naruto
That's pretty much every anime ever, anime is all about cute girls and silly romance/battles etc.
Not every anime. Idk. Romance anime is typically garbage imo. I only sort of enjoyed Oregairu, for example, because it wasn't like anything I'd personally seen before (typical mc gets girl bs).
To each their own?
>mfw this is what the current generation think anime is about.
Years of cheap LN adaptations, moeshit and 12-13 episode format are to blame.
Anime was always about kiddy stuff or heavy otaku pandering.
Truly good shows like GITS, Perfect Blue and Eva are rare exceptions.
Taiga makes my dick go up
They are such a cute couple its disgusting.
Is still undeniable current works have less substance than before but is not entirely the blame of writers. The current cheap as Fuck shows are partly a product of their enviroment. Anime now is less about making a stand alone work and more about testing waters to sell other stuff resulting in more half added and shorter products. Producers are less willing to take risks with ambitious carefully done projects and play safe by throwing lots of short stuff and giving following to whatever sticks on the wall. Anime has always been full of ludicrous and silly premises but formerly those wacky stories got more attention and care put onto them.
>Thinking any kind of good /a/ poster would want to go to a /v/ and /pol/ imageboard made to discuss normalfag social issues.
It's funny to me that you think that.
The only acceptable evolution to an /a/ oldfag is /a/ > /jp/ >Learning Japanese and moving on to the greener pastures of Japanese BBS
>Been there, it's just really slow low-rent versions of existing 4chan boards tainted with /v/ and /pol/ shitsters.
Which is because /v/ and /pol/ retards are convinced they're the old guard and the true face of 4chan, so clearly cripplechan must be where 4chan truly resides now, clearly it couldn't just be that no one likes them
/tech/, /n/, /a/, /k/ and /pol/ (in some regards minus the obvious mod bias and countless stickies) are far better in quality then the counters here, however again they are slow. 8/a/ I can actually talk about anime without the tripfaggotry and cancer that exists with 80% of threads here however its slow as balls like a forum, the same applies for every board minus /pol/. 8/pol/ doesn't have flags or the retarded /int/posting and shills /pol/ does so its automatically better.
Hell 8/v/ even bans console war threads and actually plays video games, that's more then you can say about the cancer that is /v/ (provided the owner Mark is a total kike).
If anything I'd say 4chan is the normalfag imageboard nowadays (if you don't believe me spend 10 minutes on /b/). However /a/ is still good for manga dump threads so unfortunately I still crosspost and am cancerous, but sadly I'm right especially when the kike mods allow RWBY /co/shit on /a/.
It's just feel that way because the anime industry grew a lot, especially shit adaptations, nowadays we get in one season more than we would get in the whole year if we go back 20 years ago.
Madoka, Shirobako, Death Parade.
Good, original shows are still being made.
That's a valid point and that's why I say the perception of decline in quality of anime is a product of this enviroment that allows a lot of subpar products to be released. True is that we still get good stuff but Is now harder to spot and in the past even non-masterpieces felt better put together. To put it on easier words. Shit anime back then was better or at least more carefully done than shit anime today. It was easier to have a good time picking a random title back in the day. I guess the arise of social networks has something to with that as well.
>Which is because /v/ and /pol/ retards are convinced they're the old guard and the true face of 4chan
Hah, ain't that the truth.
Their /k/ is boring and has forced flags.
Their /a/ is just way too slow to be enjoyable, I've tried to do threads there and participate in ones I like but it's just so slow, and nobody there seems to share my tastes in anime either, about any works I like there's not really anyone to talk with there, bumps are very rare and it ends up being me occasionally bumping and then maybe sometimes one guy shows up to make an actual reply.
It's just boring.
I don't want anything to do with any /pol/, their /v/ is really not different enough from the /v/ here and that's a problem.
Last I checked, instead of having Doom threads on a /vr/ board, they have a literal /doom/ board and it went months between posts. The Doom threads on /vr/ is better in every way, because there's actually people there.
/a/ was unified back in the day and those were good times.
I still remember the tripfag taiga naming and magazine poster making.
Right now /a/ is being edgy and hates everything because of newfags thinking 4chan is a edgy place,
Yeah dude I agree with you.
I just fell upset towards people who simply say "anime is pure shite nowadays" without knowing the era we live right now.
TV Broadcasting companies noticed you can get good ratings late night time simply by putting anime there.
LN/Manga/video game Publishers noticed the best/cheapest way to advertise your product is by creating anime adaptations.
Everything has an anime nowadays, it's insane, you can't expected them to be good considering most of them are pure advertisement.
That doesn't mean good creators are dead(well, Satoshi Kon is), good, well produced shows are still there.
>Hah, ain't that the truth.
Yep. It's depressing, realizing I've been here for nearly 12 fucking years, but it's more depressing to watch kids who got here in 2011 think they're the final bosses of the internet, and to see angry old men who came here from stormfront jerking off over their Day of the Rope fanfics thinking they're oldfags just because they're actually real-life old.
I still want /l/ back.
>Day of the Rope fanfics
I can't believe they actually worship that book, it's so fucking BAD. It isn't even good from a nationalist standpoint, it's comical.
There's still time.
