Why do shonenfags hate moe?
>>
>>120773498
Because it's shit.

Shonen is shit aside from a few exceptions
Moe crap is shit aside from a few gems.
They're two sides of the same piece of shit
>>
Disgusting girly shit only manchildren like.

What's the stereotype for people that think they are too good for anime? The one that want the anime medium to be like western tv?

Yeah, you're objectively homosexual.

>>120773498
Puberty causes high levels of testosterone which induce aggression. So they hate moe for the same reason that 4chan is shit, basically.

>>120774025
I watch both, actually. And there are a lot of "moe" shounen shows I don't watch, either. And some shoujo shows I do watch. Moe really isn't a genre, but moe/seinen is pretty common.

For good reason.

>>120774226
Deepfags, I guess. "Western TV" is pretty broad, but I take it you mean BSG and The Wire, and so on.

Cute is completely fine, but moe is overdone and generally fits a certain style of work. It's not always bad, but often indicative of things that some audiences don't want in their anime. If you want it that's fine, but people on both sides of the discussion pushing their preferred direction as 'right' or as 'real anime' just make life harder for everybody.

Nice attempt at seeming objective, kid, but your hatred of fun things are fun and all crafts are small shines through.
>>
>>120774648
I'm not trying to pretend that I generally like what would be considered 'moe', the character I posted was one of many examples of a cute female who is not moe rather than an attempt to fit in. I don't take issue with your preferences, just the people who try to stir shit up.

>>120773498
Shounenfags dislike low story content anime and disregard "SoL" as an absence of; plot, action and anything else more entertaining than staring away from the screen.

Because it threatens the normalfag's sexuality. If they liked cute things, that would be girly, and if they were girly, that would be gay. Which would be very, very bad.
>>
>>120774578
Except that the moe group is the predominant one here on /a/ and anything that isn't moe is just naruto to them.

And they immediately assume that you're from /v/ if you use the term moeshit to describe all the generic harem anime /a/ and reddit (ironically) goes crazy over.

They act as if people who don't enjoy loli shit are just outsiders and have no knowledge of what anime is.
>>
>>120774701
Because all of you SoL fags watch it for the plot right? Fuck off.

That's obviously a boy, though, and he's kind of moe, too. And what qualifies as "stir[ring] shit up"?
>>
>>120774578
>>120774697
>considered 'moe'
What is moe?
Artstyle?
Just cause something is drawn ugly doesnt mean it is not moe.
If you want to use moe to equate to a certain genre then go ahead but dont try to attempt to say that Ai isn't moe.
>>
>>120774789
You seem to have read into that too far.
I am not a SoLfag.

>>120774789
Bit of a reading comprehension fail there...

>>120774738
It's not that they fear being girly. Liking cute girls doing cute things isn't seen as effeminate. It's seen as pedophilia.
>>
>>120774859
my sides 10/10, good job
>>
>>120773498
The same reason why moefags hate shounen. Seriously, shounen is an insult in many threads.
>>
>>120774877
Are you implying that normalfags don't see liking cute girls as pedophilia?

They are wrong but that's how they see things.
>>
I wouldn't call myself a shonenfag, but i dislike the reusal of personalities.

I saw too many tsunderes etc so i can usually tell how it will go just by their personailites

Ai Tanabe is a bloke now? You should probably see Planetes at some point.
As for stirring shit up, you know exactly what I mean.
>>120774815
That is a very good question you pose. It's hard to define, often coming as more of a guy feeling essentially. What has to be kept in mind is that the English usage of the word is a little different from the actual nip definition, similar to how we don't use 'anime' or 'manga' like they do.
>Ai isn't moe
She's cute as hell, but I'd argue she does not really qualify.
>>
>>120774789
There's something special about a show which has no plot yet is still able to really pull emotions out of the audience. Plots are the easiest way to generate emotions from people: a villain to hate, heroes to root for and get sad over when they have troubles or die, cliffhangers to force you to tune in next week, etc. Plots are easy mode regarding creating emotional connections with the audience.

For example, in Kill lel Bill, you have "villain of the week" as your antagonist, some tits and ass here and there to keep your hormones raging and a revenge story straight out of Kill Bill. After the episode ends, it is back to the status quo with another villain from another club next week. Is this what the baka waito gaijins think is good anime with a good plot?

For most SoL shows to draw genuine laughs, tears, nostalgia, friendship and familial-bonding-type feelings without any plot is an achievement not to be fucking written off, IMO.

>The same reason why moefags hate shounen.
The fanbase is shit?

>>120774918
You haven't watched many CGDCT have you?
>>
>>120774934
>she does not really qualify.
Ai kopy is like your typical moe trait catchphrase employed by many characters in other shows.
A character like Ai is what people would term dojikko, clumsy moe.

Which is why it is retarded to use the term moeshit as a blanket term. If they want hate on a certain genre, just say they hate SoL but they won't because it would make them look stupid.
>>
Is a more interesting question: why moefags like it?
Is just obnoxious. Stupid girls acting like idiots for the sake of looking cute. Is like saying that a girl look cuter when braindamaged, that's fucking mysoginistic.
>>
>>120774957
Stop repeating your silly premise of an argument.

I'm not arguing about what CGDCT is. It's irrelevant. What's the discussion is how people you consider to be "normies" see things. And in anglo-saxon cultures like the US, Canada and UK, normies there will see people who like cute girls doing cute things as pedophiles.

They are wrong but they attach any form of admiration of young girls as pedophilia and not homosexuality.

Now, stop being retarded and go stick a dildo like your ass like you usually do.

I watched it back in 2003 or whenever. Seems like there were more space shows back then. Ryvius, Stellvia. Though I know planetes has been getting hyped on /a/ recently, I put it in my "good but not as good as everyone seems to think" folder along with Eva and Meguca.

Anyway, no, I don't know what you mean. Nor do I think you have a good sense of moe. And since it is a Japanese word and concept it either fits the original or is being misused.

Short version: kawaii is objective, moe is subjective (or reflexive)
