Cross Ange is winning Ironic AOTY with high probability.

I could just say hurr it's Ping Pong, and I'm close to doing just that, but we really have had some pretty good shows this year, so I'll list what it's up against (in my mind at least) -

>Barakamon

>Mushishi 2
>(possibly) Bahamut

>Sidonia (would have been hands down AOTY for me if it wasn't CG)

7.-(I honestly don't know about that one)
8.-Epic dub vs sub threads

Kyousougiga was great, but only up to ep7 or so.

I think there are ebook versions of his books, but to be honest, kanji aren't the biggest problem, it's the grammar. His writing style is beautiful and eloquent, but a lot more complicated than most LNs or writers like Murakami. There is a pretty good manga version of Yoru wa mijikashi, aruke yo otome, though - it has furigana and the grammar is not that hard, so you might try that for starters.

I'm very undecided.

It's either between Mushishi and Ore Twintail and Ping Pong.

I'm almost tempted to say Twintail is the best anime in recent years but it would mean it's superior than the others and the other anime aren't as great.

>>117041828
Tanuki shit was boring shit, lackluster characters, stupid plot, stupid world following traditions for no reason, annoying ''soo beautiful'' character plot device that was stupid and a meh ending.
The only people who praise it are people who thought it was the only decent thing airing during the summer and asshats who thought it was good.

How is that refuting my point?
In Twintain, it's satire sentai up the ass, not serious, and completely fun.

There are a lot of stupid inconsistencies, stupid conveniences for the plot and characters who do nothing because muh tradition while others actually are worthless and show how lackluster the Takuni anime shit really is.

Shit like Benten just randomly being so beautiful that it's literally a plot point and the father decides to kill himself, wasting his family because muh honor, or how the Friday fellow are meant to be this sort of Illuminati type but are just boring day job workers barely anywhere high up. One owns a chain of hotels, the other is a professor. Wow, so influential. Or how the brother just out of nowhere backstabs his brother. Or how CONVENIENTLY the daughter was there to listen to pass on what happened.
Or how Benten just decides to go back with the old man at the end for no reason.

It's boring, stupid, lackluster and worthless.

I'd go almost so far to say that Twintail is AOTD by how much it's near perfect in every regards except maybe animation. Tanuki is just shit. Overrated as fuck.
>>
Ping Pong for me, Space Dandy was also good, but nto thta consistent between episodes, Mushishi was good too, but has the same problem

Wow, it's almost like the antagonists of the show aren't actually bad guys or something, that was really hard to understand.

>How can there be a balance of power if one side is literally nothing?
Gee, I don't know, probably because the other side are fucking animals. There's a balance of power of the NEET without any fucking social pull and a fucking lion too, because one is a fucking animal and the other is a human being.

>>117050227
2deep4u doesn't even imply the show is deep, it implies you're a fucking moron who doesn't understand what's presented to you. The best part is when these same morons talk about the show like it was so easy to understand when they don't even have the most basic understanding of it themselves.
>>
Probably the onlycontender I'd put up there is Ping Pong
Hanayamata, Fate, Barakamon, Nozaki-kun and Kisejuu are maybes, there haven't been a lot of 9 or 10/10 shows this year but quite a bit of 8/10s and really good comedys lately.
>>
/a/ will never admit that Madoka Magica was AOTY 2011 because of bias towards the excruciatingly bad fanbase and it's overwhelming popularity just like a lot of the charts on here stray away from other obvious choices because of the fear of being labeled as a pleb.

Isn't Mushishi sort of disqualified since it's the continuation of a previously aired series?

If I had to pick something else, I'd take Space Dandy over Ping Pong - both had great visuals, sound, and storylines. Neither had particularly complex charactization, but that can be more easily forgiven in Space Dandy which was strictly episodic, so I enjoyed it more than I did Ping Pong.

Madoka needs to be on the chart. How is that even debatable? It was great, people on /a/ made a fucking religion for it. Despite what it is NOW, as far as fan base and shit, is not relevant. You people are so fucking obtuse when it comes to being hipsters and selectively cynical. Eat shit.

I did. I don't believe that just being some sort of objective "good" is the only criteria up for judgment when justifying an anime's place as AOTY. It should also take into account /a/ itself, /a/'s AOTY. What got the most quality, quantity, etc. of discussion? How -enjoyable- was it? etc.

If it was a really good show and 2 threads were made about it and it was watched by three people, is it still /a/'s AOTY?

It's an exaggeration, but only to demonstrate the flaw in that logic. At least as far as I understand it, I could be mistaken somewhere.

Here is the non troll official AOTY list

2000: Ippo
2001: Baki
2002: Chobits (not a very good year)
2003: Kino
2004: Major s1
2005: Major s2
2006: Code Geass R1
2007: Spice and Wolf
2008: Clannad AS (Great year)
2009: TM 8.0
2010: Rainbow
2011: Steins;Gate
2012: Kids on the Slope
2013: Ippo Rising
2014: Ping Pong
>>
>>117060227

Additionally,
AOTY for year N should be decided no earlier than N + 0.5. The Winter anime of 201x don't get the same opportunity to sink in as the other seasons' anime. Just because 2014 is ending doesn't mean we have to immediately decide on AOTY. Give it a bit people, good critics and reviewers do not publish, or rather, pass off their immediate thoughts as their final criticism and judgement on something. They take their time and sit on it for a bit lest they adulterate the sanctity and principle of professional criticism.
>>
Ughm i agree only with Baccano and Monster on this list.

Keep in mind that Mushishi is still a manga adaptation.

I mean, for season one they were able to pick up the best stories and put them toghether alternating the themes in them.

With S2 they didn't have choice, and adapted the rest of the manga. It was bound to be "not as good as S1" from the start, as it's either using the weaker stories and doesn't have as many of them to play around to keep the show fresh every week.

I really loved Zvezda too, but I acknowledge that it has enough imperfections that it probably doesn't deserve a spot.

That isn't what is going on. Things just belong to the season they first air in regardless of when they finish. So something starting in 2013 and finishing in 2014 could be AOTY 2013 but not 2014. It is the same way disc sales get categorized and seasonal charts get drawn up everything works on that system.

Aldnoah was the definition of wasted potential. The moment butch stopped writing for it (post ep. 3) it went completely into the shitter. We go from a super interesting mech design and believable scenario where a random bro outsmarts an overconfident opponent to random bro being literally the only competent fighter in earth's forces and super duper mysterious aldnoah powers being confined to rocket punches and TWO swords.

And don't fucking get me started on Slaine. I'm not sure what you see in the series, anon.
