Is Madoka a required anime?

I've held off watching it because it seems like a faux-intellectual show for edgy otaku, but there's always an abundance of threads about it on /a/.
>>
>>121467645
Go watch it yourself and make your own opinion.
>>
How about you go and watch it instead of relying on your prejudices and other people's opinions?
>>
>>121467645
if its on /a/ i wouldnt watch it
>>
>>121467679
>>121467721
Because I'd rather not waste any time watching something I have no interest in?

I'm wondering if it's required-tier.
>>
>>121467645
>faux-intellectual
Buzzwords don't get magically less stupid if you use synonyms to say the same thing.
May I just suggest making up your own mind, retard? If that's too much for you, maybe you should seek out a different internet community.

>>121467797
There is no "required-tier", no essentials list, nothing of the kind. Everything you do you do for yourself.
>I'd rather not waste any time watching something I have no interest in
Then you better just stop watching anime altogether.
>>
>>121467645
>but there's always an abundance of threads about it on /a/.
This should assure you that the show is pleb-tier trash.
>>
>>121467842
So for you, having no interest in Madoka equates to not having interest in the Anime Medium?

By any chance, can I get an answer from someone who isn't mentally defective?
>>
>>121467797
>>121467645
The anime isn't really intellectual or edgy.

Watch the first 5 episodes (which is only about 2 hours anyway), then make a judgement.

Not with that attitude, mister.
>>
>>121467797
Its only 12 episode long, you will only loose 6 hours of your shitty life. There is no need to make a thread for that.
>>
>>121467842
except for NGE. NGE is required.
>>
>>121467907
If you're going to take an interest in anime you better be ready to waste a lot of time diving through piles and piles of shit until you find a turd that's not as shitty as the rest.

Also, letting random anonymous people on /a/ tell you what's worth watching and what's not is much more reliable a sign of mental problems if you ask me.
>>
>any anime
>required
>>
>>121467842
I mean it depends. I'd say watch what you want to watch but if you want to discuss a medium intelligently then their is required material.

aka discussing literature without reading the bible is super fucking retarded because you miss a shit ton of stuff.

I can't take people who try to make Madoka seem smart and profound seriously.

It's a fun thriller but it's by no means "intellectual." In fact, it's actually pretty shallow.
>>
>>121468010
For a greasy haired basement dweller like yourself, it might not be much, but for a normal person like myself, I'd like to be sure it'll be time well spent.

>hey /a/ is this worth watching
These thread are fucking cancer
>>
>>121468088
You won't be sure until you watch it, retard.
>>
>>121468020
Nope.

>>121468064
>I'd say watch what you want to watch but if you want to discuss a medium intelligently then their is required material.
I'd agree carefully.
>aka discussing literature without reading the bible is super fucking retarded
No it isn't. Just be careful not to discuss literature too deeply grounded in the bible.
For anime it's the same. If you wish to discuss mecha, then you better know your Tomino, and your Anno, and all those other important titles. /a/ can't even manage to do that though. I ran into people who thought NGE is an example of an original story.
So really, watch whatever the fuck you want. Or people like >>121468020 who (ironically) think it's the only anime you need to know.
>>
>>121468088
>2 hours
>a lot
So what, do you not ever go to the theaters? What kind of normal person are you?
>>
>>121468045
There's the sensible way of finding anime to watch, and the dole-bludger's way.

One involves doing a bit of research to find out whether or not it conforms to my tastes.

The other involves just watching whatever you can find, because there's nothing to lose; it's not like time spent watching would be invested anywhere else.

BTW, I was asking if it was considered required.
>>
>>121468088
Opinion immediately discarded

>>
>>121468193
>>121468229
It's still possible to get some sort of idea in regards to whether or not I like it, based on the summary & other peoples' input. Based on the former, there are plenty of other animes I'd rather spend my time watching, but I'm open to hearing about what the latter has to say.
>>
>>121468241
Protip, most people on /a/ who aren't raging casuals such as yourself do research what they watch. In fact they're much more efficient at it then you are, clearly, yet none of them are making retarded threads like this one.
>>
>>121468283
I wouldn't even call this research; I'm pretty sure I'll live my entire life without devoting even a millisecond to watching Madoka. I just wanted to know if it fell into the 'required anime' pool, which I believe is a meme.

I heard the others are Evangelion, Boku no Pico and Dokuro-Chan.
>>
>>121467645
You made the right decision OP. It's just pure raw otaku edginess.
>>
>>121468219
NGE changed everything, it is a required watch. Madoka isn't
>>
>>121467645
Either watch it or dont, we're going to tell you to fuck off no matter what
>>
I thought Madoka was good, but mainly as an alternative take on magical girl series and not this enormous success it's become. I can't imagine rewatching it and I haven't bothered with the movies yet.

It's one of those shows I'd suggest someone really familiar with anime watch, but low power level people probably skip since it won't mean as much.
>>
>>121468528
>NGE changed everything, it is a required watch.
If you don't like it, don't watch it. Never mention it while discussing K-On! and I promise you that nobody will notice.
>>
>>121468088
Get a load of this faggot.

Your time isn't even as close as valuable as you think it is if you're posting on 4chan waiting for anonymous people telling you to watch something or not.
>>
>>121467645
>it seems like a faux-intellectual show for edgy otaku
Because that's what it is.
>>
>>121468415
I don't even know if you're being serious anymore, but there was never an /a/-core or a "required anime" list that /a/ agreed upon. The only thing /a/ as a whole has ever agreed upon is that nobody here can agree on anything. Lurk more and stop assuming so much.
>>
>>121468563
K-On is just some shitty anime about cute girls in a band, right?

remove retard

It's Uroboshit garbage. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

Mami dies, Homura is from the future, Madoka becomes God, and Saika gets NTR'd.
>>
>>121468702
This is another reason I'm ill-inclined to watch it. The guy's a perfect example of an edgy writer who doesn't understand a lot of the basic fundamentals.

Urobutcher's nowhere near as good of a writer as he, or his fans think he is.
>>
>>121468731
You forgot Kyouko dies, Sayaka dies and Magic Girls become witches.

>>121467645
Retard, you don't 'held off' stuff in your backlog, you watch then when you have nothing to do.
If you have the time to ask on /a/, watch it anyways, since you're gonna waste your 'precious time'.

He is at least better then every western writer that have ever existed.

How much time did you waste trying to find out if you would be wasting your time watching a one-cours show?

Christ, man. You could burn through it and Rebellion in one night without being a massive faggot for all to see.

Instead you got spoiled on everything in this thread. If something is as big as Madoka obviously is don't even look up summaries or anything, since going in blind is going to be better 100% of the time.
>>
>>121467645
>Is Madoka a required anime?
No. But it will probably inspire a lot of other Shows due to its Success.

The Speculah Threads were nice.
>>
>>121468769
yuyuyu was better than madoka and actually made me care for the characters and did it in 12 episodes while madoka needed more episodes to flesh out characters other than homura
>>
>>121468876
Alright, judging by that post, you clearly interpret it as a 'required anime'. That's all I really want to know.

Not that OP, but your logic and thought process seems to be a little screwy.

so deviant art or drawfriend threads or where?

He should leave if this is his idea of trolling too.

I dunno he's at least had some success at generating an awful thread that showcasing his lack of intelligence.
>>
>>121468088
You expect any of us to take you seriously?

Watch it and form your own opinion, you fucking sheep.
