ro-kyu.bu and slam dunk are the only exception.
Yeah, that horror feeling is done best in shows that don't dedicate themselves to the genre.
>this is horror
please ignore the memetastic watermark
Yeah, pretty much every harem series after 90's ended just hasn't been very good. They just throw the girls at the MC nowadays and they don't have to work for their harems anymore. They also do stupid shit like removing any other male character from relevancy for the sake of pandering. Most people that make harems these days don't try to tell a story anymore, they're either in it just for money or they are completely devoid of imagination and/or experience with actual human beings.
A lot of 90's anime like Genocyber, Yotoden, and Demon City Shinjuku were pretty horrifying imo.
>not enjoying every genre
It's like this place doesn't have any weebs left anymore.
What a sad state /a/ is in.
>slice of life
If I wanted to see people doing everyday shit I would go outside.
I only like aspects of slice of life in other anime when they at least make sense or act as a breather; like Soul Eater's exam episode or Sidonia's lull between shit getting fucked up.
Full on slice of life is terrible.
>believing you are Japanese
Not really. Nobody who is not Japanese believe they are unless they are seriously diseased. And I mean real issues, not the "urr you are autistic" internet thing.
What does weeaboo even mean anymore?
The last time I checked it was someone that had an obsession with Japanese culture. Now it seems like people use it for anyone that likes anything remotely Japanese.
Whatever lucky star/idol master and k-on are considered
Harem, especially harem manga is like fast food.
It's not fulfilling at all but it gives you some goofy feelings while reading it, and then you feel empty and have to take a nasty shit afterwards.
But I can't stop.
I hate Mecha when the actual Mecha aspect isn't even apart of the whole point of the plot, and really it's just a way to have cute girls doing cute things
Evangelion doesn't count, since despite many people saying nothing matters in the show besides it's philosophical message, the fights are awesome, and the designs for the Eva Units and Angels are creative. And the Angels and Evas are metaphorical themselves, so they do matter.
Wow, just when I thought /a/'s taste couldn't get any shitter.
Cute girls doing cute things such as precure, kon, luck star, idol master etc
>If something is true in Western literature it must be true in chinese cartoons
No it doesn't. Read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_fantasy
>Urban fantasy is a subgenre of fantasy defined by place; the fantastic narrative has an urban setting. Urban fantasy exists on one side of a spectrum, opposite high fantasy, which is set in an entirely fictitious world. Many urban fantasies are set in contemporary times and contain supernatural elements. However, the stories can take place in historical, modern, or futuristic periods, and the settings may include fictional elements. The prerequisite is that they must be primarily set in a city.
It's only requirements are that it's fantasy set in an urban area, and they are most often given contemporary settings. F/SN fits it to a T.
>romance, school, action
There's at least three shows a season that fit these genres, and they're all shitty LN adaptations.
Seriously, what the fuck does that even mean?
All of these are good in manga
Why is anime such a shit medium?
>there will be a time where this is a legit question and not bait
I'm watching this right now. Some people have told me the ending is shit, but it 3 chapters in it doesn't look so bad. Well, the first death has been a little retarded, but that's all.
>muh giant tin cans that use swords, guns and laser beams
You're right. I should have said battle-action/powerlevel. I actually don't mind Sports shounen.
There's no such thing as a unilaterally bad genre. Thinking so is a dumb generalization
Gimme a genre of anime
I will give you a show in that genre that, if not good, is at least redeemable, interesting, or significant.
Drama depends on your caring about the characters and that is why I fucking hate dramas.
That's more or less because Horror is very hard to pull off with anime. Horror is generally about subtlety, about quite, creeping terror, at least in shows that aren't shitty jump scares. Animation, as an art, is all about exaggeration and style and the two don't mesh together well.
I do think that this series of shorts, if not terribly "good", is at least a very admirable attempt at it. And some are genuinely scary.
I hate linking to cr, so I suggest you DL it.
What about worst genre combinations?
Anime in general can't do it very well.
The romance series that are praised here are shit. All people describe is the "alpha MC" and the fact that it only has two cliches rather than eight or nine.
Toradora is not the greatest love story ever told. Taiga is an insufferable girl.
Anon, Toradora is just a meme.
This is the real greatest love story ever told.
I also cannot understand what the appeal of a tsundere is.
Are you really such a pathetic man that you want someone to insult and ridicule you any moment they get?
Before discovering 2D, did you guys get bullied by hot girls and hoped that they secretly liked you?
Same here because the scene didn't make any sense.
That is objectively wrong.
Mecha absolutely. If a mecha is good it's not because of the mecha aspects that's for sure. The idea of giant fighting robots is just retarded. Why not just use tanks? That would be cooler.
>This is the real greatest love story ever told.
Can we stop the meme where people pretend to like teen melodrama revolving around suffering and unrequited love rather than character and romantic development, and that masquerade themselves as "realistic romantic drama"?
>Before discovering 2D, did you guys get bullied by hot girls and hoped that they secretly liked you?
No, I had a couple hot girls who I bullied and found out they put up with it because they liked me.
3DPD is fucked in the head.
For anime and manga: "that makes you think", from heavy conversation like Monogatari and Onani Master Kurosawa which I love but they are more drama than psychological, just not melodrama like Shoujo.
For what it should be: "Mind games within the story and for the reader" like Death Parade, Paranoia Agent, Perfect Blue and such.
