So I just finished watching New Getter Robo, and I have to ask: why do people like Getter at all? The manga wasn't special, interesting or notable in any way, shape or form, the Toei anime are just as bad, and the OVAs were somehow worse. Is it just one of those series that people on /m/ like to try and appear learned on mecha, because there are tons of other series that do everything Getter does and more far better. I'm legitimately asking this by the way, so don't try and dismiss me as a boogeyman or something.
Not valid arguments.
Where the fuck did this autism meme for Getterfags come from, anyway? The series is bad, and the people who like it have bad taste, but they are not autistic.
>Where the fuck did this autism meme for Getterfags come from, anyway?
Any getter thread where shitposting is the norm.
It proves they have some serious autism in that fanbase.
Hell, even the spic boogeyman is a subproduct of their autism.
>The manga wasn't special, interesting or notable in any way, shape or form
Okay, you are the one making the argument. Why is the manga not "special"? Why is the manga not "interesting"? Why is the manga not "notable in any way, shape or form"? Why is the Teoi anime bad? How are the OVA's worse?
Make your case. Defend Your arguments. Define your position. Then let people counter your arguments if they can.
>Any getter thread where shitposting is the norm
You mean all of them? None of that has to do with autism though, it's just them being a shitty fanbase, which is fitting considering the quality of the series.
Nah man, it is autism. Every single one of them isn't shitposting, they actually believe what they're saying. Hell, they even believe the spic exists and it's responsible for their autism!
Even when a poll which asked "which is the most autistic fanbase on /m/" resulted in getter robo being first, they just said it was the spic who rigged it and as such it didn't matter.
You're running a lonely thread. It's always at the same time of day, too. Maybe you should try a new strategy, bro.
>Make your case. Defend Your arguments. Define your position
You're asking the spic to logically commit himself. You see, that's not possible. This is why you should call him out whenever you see him.
This thread is again proof of the spic's undeniable autism, something he is so proud of.
>there are tons of other series that do everything Getter does and more far better.
Go to bed Wasim.
Nobody cares about your halal grendizer fanwank.
>Where the fuck did this autism meme for Getterfags come from, anyway?
It comes from the spic who got mad that we called him out on his spicposting.
Now he just spams it in every Getter thread. He can't rape and pillage native civilisations like his ancestors did anymore, so now he attacks Getter, which is the source of civilisation; except you know, it's on the internet, and not in real life.
He's a spic justice warrior; the last true hope against humanity.
Seems like the butthurt Wingfag is now trying to bait the Getter fanbase...
>if you think the spic is anything but a boogeyman
There's a real shitposter in getter threads. he even went as far as making fanbase polls. He's that autistic, on the same level as Clawshrimpy.
Heck, even I think Clawshrimpy was less autistic than that individual. He makes himself so obvious to anyone browsing Getter threads.
I'm a good shitposter, he isn't. His presence just offends me.
>he even went as far as making fanbase polls
>Even when a poll which asked "which is the most autistic fanbase on /m/" resulted in getter robo being first, they just said it was the spic who rigged it and as such it didn't matter.
Autism at its finest.
I shitpost about Getter too, but the way he goes about it is completely amateurish. I can rile up getterfags in no time, but he's taking 20 threads to do it. Still no one is taking him seriously.
You also need to be taken seriously if you want to become a professional shitposter like myself. Patlabor, Gundam, Getter, toku, I've done it all.
I used to troll ttglfags on /a/ with Getter (Just for keks), and I used to be very successful at it. Right now, my job is to up the level of shitposts, because you people are still so bad at this it hurts.
>resulted in getter robo being first,
Except it's done on /m/. All you have to do is repeat something till everyone thinks it's true. That's not real skill, and it's short term anyway. Also remember the poll when Zeta was constantly ranking as the worst Gundam ever. It's that easy. People for years have repeated bullshit that made it to TV Tropes. Show me real shitposting skills. Stuff like polls are useless, and only show how easy /m/ can be manipulated.
I hate it when people don't take the art seriously.
By not being valvrager. That's the first tip. There's nothing elegant about valvrager. All he does is repeat how bad valvrave is. You need to properly engage with the audience you're about to shit on; when they're emotionally invested, it's only then that you unleash your shitposts, in spades, so that they don't catch that you're a blatant shitposter. Repeating yourself only makes you look like a fool.
You just need to be both subtle and forceful when the time calls for it.
>Except it's done on /m/
Well duh, the poll was done by /m/ for /m/. I don't even know if the getter fanbase in other sites is as autistic as this one.
>Stuff like polls are useless, and only show how easy /m/ can be manipulated.
>polls don't count because I say so
You don't fool anyone spic
Funny, I remember when the thread was up, and when Gundam was winning, everyone was like "yeah lol gendumb sucks take that", but when Getter Robo came first they all started shouting "noooo this can't be the spic rigged it this poll is fake!!!1!!"
3 years of archive was lost forever, so nope. People got so mad about the whole deal that they started spamming the threads. When that happened, a mod stepped up and banned them to oblivion.
...Is there a way to report every single post in a thread at once?
>I don't, actually
You just gave away your position as a newfag.
>People got so mad about the whole deal that they started spamming the threads. When that happened, a mod stepped up and banned them to oblivion.
And those fools didn't know how to evade bans?
The point is that they lost the debate, and consequently lost it and started spamming. When you trigger someone that hard, you know you're an a class shitposter.
The art of shitposting is to provoke unhealthy reactions among the user you're shitting on.
>Remember the Infinite Stratos shitstorm?
The guy doing it even bragged about it so it wouldn't surprise me.
>I'm totally going gorespammer with this show to force the mods to permabann it.
>caring about a poll done over a week to truly reflect on the damage that various fanbases have done to /m/ over the years.
The biggest cancer on /m/ has always been Gundam, especially early UC. And lest not forget Gundam AGE. I stopped browsing /m/ for weeks because of it. By comparison, tokufags were hardly cancerous, just numerous, but they had attacks coming their way, all the time, not from Getterfags, but Gundamfags.
Tokufags decision to segregate themselves into generals will always remain the best thing they ever did for the rest of /m/.
>Remember the Infinite Stratos shitstorm?
Those were good times. I would pretend to be an IS hater, even though I actually didn't give a fuck about the show, just because I liked seeing the board go to shit. It was hilarious.
This is what you, as a single anon, says about the fanbases on /m/, but what -multiple- anons proved in that poll is that getter is the most cancerous fanbase here. But no, I forgot that was the spic as well.
Multiple anons... are new to this board, and don't know much about its history. I wouldn't trust it. Young new users are so dumb that they are easily manipulated. Most tripfags I know aren't even here anymore. Repeating something doesn't make it a true. Facts will always defeat popularity contests.
Do you guys ever regret it? The Strike Witches, IS not /m/ shit posting lead to the Valvrager shitposting, and lead to /m/ being in it's current state. (among countless other factors admittedly).
All I'm saying is that there's always a third way to reply to someone.
When someone is being a contrarian little shit, like glorifying hitler, instead of responding with the usual "how could you glorify a mass murderer etc", all you have to do is reverse it on his head and mention how hitler is a gigantic failure who couldn't even conquer europe, and exterminate all the jews. Mention how 6 million is an inflated number and that the kikes are actually boosting his reputation with that, and the last thing you want is kikes backing you up. Mention all the badass dictators who were more successful than him.
That's the general idea. I make him think I'm on his side by glorifying genocide, but at the same, I make his personal hero look pathetic; which is what I meant that you have to engage with your audience emotionally, and then shit on them. If you simply offer your counter view; arguments will go back and forth and never end.
/m/ deserves all the shitposting it gets for being elitist about giant robot cartoons, and yet know nothing about them at the same time.
People here like to brag about how they're so great for watching classic retro anime, but all they ever do is watch early Gundam. Most other 80s mecha are pretty much skipped. Fansub threads barely get any replies (This is where the real effort is), yet /m/ is willing to talk about ZZ for the 1000th time.
We also often get a lot of "/m/ is better than /a/", but if you've known /m/ for years, it's really not any better. The discussions aren't any more engaging that they are on /a/. If you try to make a legit thread and try to discuss the plot of a show that's not Gundam or Macross; FORGET IT. There's absolutely no encouragement for anyone to do that. However, if you make a super/real thread, you get shitload of replies. So instead of showcasing this fake /m/ that want to look cool and dignified, it's best if I reveal to everyone else coming to this board just how shitty /m/ actually is.
My expectations of /m/ aren't that high. If they did watch 70s mecha, cool, but that's not the case. Gundam was all througout the 80s, so I expected /m/ to have at least watched other Tomino anime like Xabungle, L-Gaim etc which are all pretty neat in their own rights. I couldn't even get reasonable discussion on those shows. So yeah, /m/ is a lost case. The only time this board is entertaining is when people make shitposting threads like those.
Even as a fan of Getter, I don't care about its reputation, because this board is more entertaining if people meme the fuck out of it. I've called other getterfags retards in the past, and will continue to do so, and I hate circlejerks as much as everyone else. In fact, every time there's a Getter circlejerk, I shitpost to break that circle myself, and I do it, without relying on newbie "spic" outsiders.
Personally, I'm glad Getter Robo has a dedicated shitposter or two. That's when a series has made it on 4chan. When it has dedicated shitposting disciples. Getter Robo is established.
The more you shitpost, the harder Getter GETS UOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH
>Don't you want to improve /m/ for the better?
No, it's hopeless. The only thing you should do now is shitpost, so that this board becomes so shit that no one will ever want to post here again. When that happens, new users will come in to replace the old users who got tired of the shitposting. Shitposting is like a good old flush.
Getter Robo has been established for years now, which is why it has shitposters. It's a sign of recognition.
Honestly, I don't know what you were expecting from a board made pretty much because /a/ didn't want to deal with Gundam anymore.
Also, shitposting doesn't make it any easier for the little guys to get their threads. In fact, they're more likely to get bumped down into oblivion. So thanks for that, you ass.
Maybe, but at least shitposting is fun. The mods seem to have either relaxed on the rules or given up on /m/. They should have known that heavily moderating an already slow board would only cause further harm to it. The unfortunate part about this is that it was /m/ themselves who asked for it.
In other words, /m/ is like pre 2012 again, and that's actually great.
If anon is reading, these posts again
are just so bad at trying to rile up people. When you shitpost, you need context. You need reason. Otherwise you just appear autistic like Clawshrimpy who wouldn't stop repeating the same thing over and over again, just in different phrases and sentences. All of CS's posts could be summed up as GGG is a high brow sci fi masterpiss, and TTGL is the bane of mecha.
I didn't compare /m/ to /a/ at all, I simply stated the reason this boards exists in the first place.
Also, this place was hardly ever the "retro" board. Some people just have a preference for it because most mecha anime worth watching was made decades ago. Nobody is ever going to try to make a thread about, say, Lupin III here.
>accept that they're just as bad as /a/
That's not his point though. It's /m/ having a big head that's the problem; how good or shit /a/ is or isn't is completely irrelevant to that.
You just need to appear as a legitimate poster. Intrigue will get people interested. If you shitpost about a show, mention how you tried really hard to get into it, but you couldn't due to how bad it was. You have to be convincing, and deflect any attempt at someone smelling your bait.
>Getterfags are so retarded and autistic that they shitpost their own kind.
Gundamfags are known to do the same, on a much larger scale. So yeah, they're the better qualified autistic individuals.
Honestly, it just seems like what you two perceive as having a "big head" rather than it actually being the case for most of the board.
Then again, it's really easy for a handful of douchebags to ruin everything for everyone.
It doesn't seem specific enough. All he said was that Getter wasn't special, and wonder why people like it. He says there are other series that do Getter better, but doesn't cite any.
I can see why. He's a shitposter, and he knows that if he cites the wrong work, he'll look like shit. There are no easy way to go about this, but I would still take the chance for maximum potential. Even if he drops the wrong bomb, there are still ways to turn it around. He failed to mention TTGL, which I personally know is a sore spot for all super robot fans I know of. Just saying you're not a boogeyman doesn't convince anybody.
No, that's really not something that I see all the time. Perhaps I'm just never in the right place at the right time, but that is still my experience on /m/.
If anything, there's more loathing of the place. Although, I do wonder why they won't just leave if it's truly that awful of a place.
Don't be like that. If we work together, we'll finally be able to escape.
>So you're an edgelord, is what you're saying?
Okay, food for thought, why do you think edge is bad?
/m/ likes edgy, which is why people really dig Ideon and Zeta here. Yeah, Getter is edgy, so fucking what? Americans vilified any series that they didn't perceive to be Christian enough.
You were taught to hate edgy things, which is why your house only had round tables. But you never thought for once why edgy is inherently bad. The only argument people make is that it appeals to teenagers, because somehow, teenagers aren't real people anymore.
It doesn't make any sense at all.
>And that's not even mentioning 70s mecha that are skipped
But most 70s' mecha are shit, anyway. It was during the 80s that mecha anime moved away from being poorly-animated toy comercials to become a more mature genre, as exemplified by masterpieces such as Dougram and Votoms.
Except the genre was already maturing by the time stuff like Grendizer and Combattler came out.
You also forgot Zambot 3. Dougram and Votoms only came out like they did because of the director, not because of the era. Some part of the 80s was just like the 70s.
>which is why your house only had round tables
Circular, if tables are truly round(spherical) you cannot put anything on it and it cannot stand still on its own.
This is why you need edges.
There's a reason nobody mentions Acrobunch, Srungle, Godsigma, Albegas, Southern Cross, Trider G7... the list goes on. Unless you're baiting, you're just using "muh eighties" as an excuse, while ignoring all the generic, boring or derivative shows of that time.
Honestly, the concept of Trider G7 where the protagonist juggles saving the Earth and running a company sounds pretty far from generic. I can't say I know much about it's execution since I don't know any Japanese though.
>There's a reason nobody mentions Acrobunch, Srungle, Godsigma, Albegas, Southern Cross, Trider G7... the list goes on.
Because most of those haven't been subtitled and probably never will?
Getter Robo is one of my favorite mecha franchises. The robot designs are cool, and I love the combination gimmick. The manga is a great story, and the OVAs have awesome fight scenes and excellent music.
Wait, wait, I'm sorry...

Sorry anon, I didn't mean to offend. next time I'll ask you what's OK to watch and what isn't before starting an anime.
Crazy as it sounds, some people would like to decide for themselves whether the effort is worth it and ignore hearsay from others who, more than likely, haven't watched them either.
I probably would have stopped being a lazy asshole if there were more local opportunities to learn Japanese. Online courses don't really cut it for me.
Still, a little language barrier won't stop me from watching them anyway.
if you're not motivated enough to really do it then maybe you're really not into it enough
learning a language just for some pop culture crap is a bit much for most people
