Is it safe to say that the quality of an anime can be graded by the highest level of discussion they create?

>Shit tier: shitposting
>Weak tier: waifu wars
>Okay tier: plot discussion
>Good tier: character analysis
>God tier: theme analysis

This is the dumbest thing i've read on /a/ and /a/ is a treasure cove of daily dumb shit.

But this... just takes the crown without effort.
>>
It's a good way to gauge a fanbase, but a shitty show can involve themes worth discussing and even bring them to light in a more blunt manner, potentially facilitating discussion of the themes rather than how shit their inclusion in the story was, and so on for interesting characters, noteworthy plot development, etc
>>
thanks for the laugh anon, sage
>>
>Weak tier: waifu wars
>Okay tier: plot discussion
>Good tier: character analysis
>God tier: theme analysis
This is just another form of shitposting

This is all pleb shit compared to animation and storyboard discussion.

Is it safe to say that the quality of a thread on /a/ can be graded by how much /a/-related the image used for the OP is?
>>
>>137972143
I think here, the kind of anime a person watches and discusses is /a/'s version of "what kind of car/home you own" IRL.

We feel pride when we watch anime of the highest quality, and discuss it with others because their good taste is simply a reflection of ours (praising people who are like us is an acceptable way of praising ourselves). Likewise, we shitpost shitty ones to prove to others that "we have good taste, and we're proving it by shitposting this title."

It's, more or less, establishing ourselves on the social hierarchy of nerds.
>>
I've been away for a year due to deployment and other unrelated shit.

What the fuck is up with all these 3D image shitposts? Where did they come from?
Like, half of the threads are some completely unrelated image, with some greentext, or something like "ITT SHIT WAIFU"

There are actually smart people here.

shitposting about the quality of shitposting is still shitposting, you know.
>>
>>137972143
Every show is waifu wars though, retard. /a/ argues about who the best girl in shows of every genre. A show has to have literally no females characters whatsoever and in that case it's probably fujoshit and thus they'll argue about best boy instead.

>>137972143
Yuribear threads consistently provoked elaborate theme analysis but the show itself wasn't particularly good.

The objectively best form of discussion on /a/ is speculah. Thanks to 'primaries', this type of discussion does not occur more often than once every couple of years.

Yes, KLK sure had the best threads.
>>
>>137972522
>images is more important than the discussion
>>
>>137973782
Its speculah threads were miles ahead of whatever mediocre waifuwar thread you're hiding in this season. It also generated more OC than anything that will air this year. Shows are allowed to have shit threads so long as they actually produce good threads with good discussion by the same degree.

>>137972143
What is better?
Red or Blue?

>>137975225
>2016
>even considering red
>>
>>137972278
>>137972379

It's true though
>>
>>137975225
A lot of people seem to just be fanboying from one perspective or another, but I can say from a completely neutral onlooker's standpoint that red is objectively superior.
>>
>>137972143
It's actually the opposite. The rule of thump is, the less cerebral a given anime, the greater the quality of posts/threads it will generate.

Hilarious joke. How good an anime is, is subjective.

It rather depends on the popularity and what the shows does instead of how good it does that.

All it takes is one sufficiently dedicated and autistic poster to turn an entire series worth of discussion into waifu wars and shitposting.
