I know, but there's some serious moments. The girls (and to some extent the boys) are moeblobs, but by no means is it only that.
Just watch it. Keep in mind that some arcs and stand-alone episodes might not be to your liking.
You can never tell who you're listening to on /a/.
Are you a retard, anon?
While the list contains generally higher-shelf quality titles, it reeks of pretentiousness and is aimed at people that only watched at best 10 anime series and are essentially looking for "thinking man's" titles to show how mature they are exploring a medium for kids.
>anime is for kids guys
>any anime that isn't aimed at kids is pretentious
>if you watch pretentious anime, something's wrong with you
I think I will take whatever shows I haven't watched from that list and place them at the top of my backlog.
Seriously, leave it to the people who read actual books to read a good story. Let's face it, because anime and movies have actual budgets, people can't get too creative.
I'm genuinely at a loss as to what so many anons see in it. The only aspect I could even call above average is the music. The first 10 episodes or so are borderline unwatchable, yet all I hear is people raving about a clunky and telegraphed plot development in the final act.
I know the last few years have been a little barren but that's no reason to elevate this trash to company where it clearly doesn't belong.
Pretty decent as far as entry-level good taste goes. Obviously very skewed towards critically acclaimed and/or "psychological" stuff. Which is fine, of course. There's nothing on there that I've seen that is downright bad.
There's a lot of nice stuff but the inclusion of the No Longer Human manga is kind of weird. It is /lit/ but it's not a good adaptation.
If I were to recommend any additions I'd say Gauche the Cellist (book adaptation), Helter Skelter and Heart of Thomas. There's also some manga that could be removed, you really don't need that many Jiro Taniguchi manga or shit like Tomie on there.
I'm really glad A 1001 Nights is on there
oh yeah, Paranoia Agent is /lit/ as fuck. Some of the episodes are great short stories in themselves. And Pluto takes the characters and an arc of a kids cartoon, fleshes it out, and makes it epic.
I think it's a pretty obvious fucking selection. The majority of the people that watch anime every season will pick a decent amount of this as well. Shit's like looking at your average IMDB list, literally nothing to talk about.
>Texhnolyze and Whisper of the Heat.
Good lord /lit/ you're welcome over here any time.
I do what I want you fag, especially if it pisses you off.
>Seriously, leave it to the people who read actual books to read a good story
Are you new or something? Because almost everything on there is well-liked and talked about on /a/ particularly the anime section.
Eva is trash that panders to teenagers by shoving skin on the screen, the only people who like it are nostalgiafags and other people inexperienced in the medium who are trying to fit in with the nostalgiafags. If /lit/ can't see that then that's their problem.
I didn't find it that boring, just reserved and more subtle. It's not in your face like most recent anime. Then again I found There Will Be Blood boring as shit and people cream themselves over that movie, so I guess I understand where people might be coming from.
Pretentious, but not bad. The inclusion of some shows is questionable, like why have the Bartender anime but not the manga when the anime was a pretty bland adaptation? .hack is a questionable choice in general. Having an entire block on there is a bit silly as they obviously haven't seen every adaptation of World Masterpiece Theater, but I suppose they're just being cute. They obviously don't have much of a taste for animation, but that's about what you'd expect.
I tried to /lit/ but i think i might be too stupid for it, i like historical/medieval fantasy but every time
i tried to read something they tell all kinds of different stories at once or events and character
names that you have to remember and i just blacked out in the middle.
>metropolis film instead of manga
so you didn't watch it? Pacing wasn't good and voice acting was weak. Looked amazing though.
Why would you write "/lit/" on top of an /a/ recommendations chart?
Which one of them has more variety? There are a billion charts on the wiki, and they cover pretty much the same essentials.
I can only guess what you mean by the type of people this list is supposed to represent, but it's an admirable list for a board that has no relation to anime and manga whatsoever. If it was the other way around, the list of books that /a/ would make would probably be laughable at best.
I feel the same way.
I choose to believe it's because of poor visualization skills, I don't get any faces to the names and all of the long winded descriptions of shit do nothing for me but make me lose attention.
>it's an admirable list for a board that has no relation to anime and manga
Pro-tip: people can browse any board on 4chan and the userbases overlap. If you think it's in any way strange that people who watch mature anime for mature people such as themselves also browse /lit/ then you should lurk more.
