Why are normalfags so bothered by sad anime (melodrama)?

My main value of an anime is if it can make me cry or not. I don't care if it's "edgy' or deep, and I don't care if the melodrama is great or not, I can get that shit from american tv shows so "melodrama" is something I can only get from Japanese dramas.

I only care if the melodrama is bad or not. Sometimes it's cringeworthy, or pulls you out of the moment, that is legitimate criticisms. But sometimes anons complain that drama anime/manga has "cheap drama" but who the hell cares? If it makes you cry, who cares if it is deep or not, or cheap or not, I just want to get from point A or B.

Also PA Works thread.

Normalfags like melodrama. You're talking about /a/.
>>
I'm the same way, you should read Chumo Once Again (sometimes called Once Again, idk).

I LOVE crying. I am a crybaby IRL and I love reading a story that makes me cry.

But I also go through phases when I am feeling very very stressed out the last thing I want to do is get invested in the trauma of another. I want a happy and fluffy story. Normalfags, who have jobs, are much more likely to get that daily stress and anxiety and need a nice happy story to unwind.

OP here.

I think normalfags, and wageslaves, are more likely to cry over stupid shit like the girl secretary at their job bullied them or they are a virgin. That is why they are so angry at melodrama. People like us, who are superior, don't cry very often, so we need decent melodrama to "trick" us into crying those theraupeutic tears.

Anyway, I enjoy it. As long as the character development and stuff is done right, I like melodrama, it's my favorite anime genre.
>>
>>122454604
Melodrama's really overrated. Tragedies and biting sarcasm are where it's at. If anything, normalfags love melodrama. I can't tell you all the normalfags who go on about how "sad Clannad is" or some shit like that.

>>122454981

I dont know if you meant this post for me, but I do cry regularly and I am not a male nor gay but I feel like its cathartic for me. When I am done crying I feel better. Crying together with fictional characters in particular makes me feel closer to them, I feel their pain kind of thing.

I'm already a sensitive person so I cry very easily IRL as well and yes that can be an issue. Like yes, when I was new to 4chan I cried a lot when I got called names but not as much now.

Chumo Once Again makes me sob every single time I read it.

I think any story that makes me cry is a good story at least for that moment.

People who cry over Clannad are mentally challenged and should seek more education and story comprehension immediately.

Protip: The next time you see a Clannad thread, look at the posts.
Most of the posters have blatant misspellings in their posts. Capitalization and punctuation is forgotten, and Youtube-style idiocy is emphasized.

This exemplifies the low intelligence level of Clannad fans. It isn't without reason either.

Clannad is simply a story that was overly dramatic and tragic, a story that should've appealed to anyone with a sense of heart. However, most people have seen this strategy in the forms of books, movies, real life, or some other medium.
The dramatic, tragic story has been done many many times, and the single death of an over-dramatized "cute" characters should no longer affect the intellectual in a drastic way.

However, Clannad's target audience consists of 13 year old boys who have never experienced forms of higher literature or story. If one were to watch Clannad without having experienced stories with sadness in them, they would use Clannad as the base value for the genre. However, if one were more educated on the aspects of dramas and tragedies, one would regard Clannad as a poor attempt to appeal to their audiences.

Once the dramatic and tragic elements of Clannad are removed, the remaining dregs are composed of cute girls and pitiful comedic scenes. Essentially, this is what Clannad is to the educated and informed. A simple show which has no appeal whatsoever. However, to the uneducated, Clannad represents a new flavor of anime they have just experienced.

Although one can regard a new genre as wonderful, I would advise one to pursue more subjects of that genre. There is no point fawning over a single anime that broadcasted months or years ago. I would suggest that, instead of creating another Clannad thread, you should go watch some more anime. Or, better yet, you can always go read a book.

My mother (very normalfag, 2.5 kids and a dog, white, middle class, etc) hates sad endings and only likes happy ones. Sad endings in general test badly among most of society.

I do stick by my theory that when you are feeling highly stressed/anxious you need something lighthearted to forget your worries. When you are very relaxed you need something sad to make you cry and feel.

I didn't think this was a Clannad thread, OP pic is not of Clannad.

Clannad is sometimes very cheery and it can move very very very slow but it has its sad moments as well. I like the parent/child motifs in general and those relationships are ripe for tears. At least for me. Just all those parental relationships make me cry and listen to Cranberries' Ode to my Family.

Touche except ALL THE OTHER TOP TEN are not tragic at all. so thats what, 90% happy ending 10% tragic?

Rest my case. Case rested. The end. In general a tragic ending is considered a risk people will hate it, because if you are a stressed out normalfag with a horrible job and bills coming out your ass you want to relax and see some escapism. You don't want to see anything too sad.

Titanic is amazing on many levels and I won't go into them here because its not /tv/ But there's a reason why its the EXCEPTION and not the rule.

>>122455341

Every reaction is a form of emotional enlightenment and no reaction is as deep as sobbing is. That is what we do when we are at our most exposed.. If something amazingly sad happens, you'd cry. If something amazingly happy happens, you'd cry. When you are angry to the core, you'd cry.

Tears are a sign of "I am feeling so much right now I don't know what else to do but make tears".

This emotional enlightenment is more true to ourselves than "intellectual" enlightenment, intellect flows forward from our emotional reactions.

Exactly, I have cried for the reasons of "I am sad", "I am happy", "this is epic", "I have a mixture of emotions" or even "I find this funny". That is why my rank of favorite anime is not based on objective qualities but how hard I cried. Of my 3x3 choices only 2 I did not significantly cry to, at some point.

>>122454604

It's really a very individual thing how one reacts to melodrama (be it well written or otherwise,) and I think it has little to do with how much of a "normalfag" you are.

Without blogging too hard, suffice it to say I am over 30, well-educated, and while I work at a comfortable professional job now, I spent several years as a NEET. I also come from a background where I lost a lot of friends and some family members to drugs/violence/illness etc. from a young age, and live in a place where I still lose friends and acquaintances to the insane heroin epidemic happening around here lately.

It doesn't bother me at all when it happens.

What do I tear up over? Today's episode of Shigatsu ha Kimi no Uso.

Even though I know it's not very well written. Even though I know it's rather generic and uses cheap tricks to tug at your heartstrings. Hell, even though I have already read the ending of the manga.

I don't know why melodramatic Jap cartoons get to me and real life shit doesn't even phase me, it just seems to be the way I work.

i have a similar experience in life
i suspect representational and limited art makes it easier to focus on the basic qualities of a story or happenings plus exaggerated style of anime ensures that when it hits home it hits hard
whereas all the excessive details and endless intertwining factors and observer/participant problem of real life makes appreciation impossible

this might mean i'm autistic

I dropped it on episode 09
The episode with the edgy mom, it was too much for me and I couldn't take it.

However, the other week I started watching it again starting from that episode, which still sucked but I liked the rest and it was pretty neat to see the parellels between that guys mom and his not-gf.

I cried a couple times and I don't feel bad.

I could put myself in his shoes, sure I never had gf but imagine falling in love with someone exactly like your mom, who is a cunt and then being presented with that "what the fuck" moment when you realize she's basically your mom, I liked that it was pretty cool.

Much better than lolis in the country or lolis speaking english or other moe SoL. Although those are okay too, they just don't do as much for me.

iktf bro...maybe I'm depressed or something, but I really relate to one of the show's themes of how special people can transform your life, as though a perpetual grey filter has been removed from your sight. Just the basic idea of the show, having something beautiful and transformative be necessarily transient, really resonates with me. I'm probably a bit emotionally stunted, but I'd like to think that I'm well-educated and self-aware enough not to be delusional in my appreciation for the show.

Not at all.
Fairy Tales, Operas, Thrillers and SoL are all different genres with different narrative standards, formulas and purposes.
Some people strive to make their works life-like while others don't, the reader/listener/viewer interpretation is another bridge in communication that when crossed might or might not radically change the creator's message.

This is basic science of communication principle.

I'm undecided on how clever this is. I actually agree with this in general, though the pasta elements woven into it make it seem less sincere. The fact that such a large number of anime fans, on /a/, MAL, Reddit and what have you, all consider Clannad:AS to be a masterpiece, with barely any opposition outside of the most self claimed patrician circles, is a very strange happening to me. Call it 'forced drama' or whatever, but the series goes excessive lengths to take utterly bland, badly defined and will-less characters who only respond to things in the most dramatically convenient and exaggerated ways, and shoves them in for of the viewer in a manor that would make many soapies blush. To see people proud that they cried to it (frequently when they claim that nothing else would), I don't know what to make of it.

The problem is that in recent years autistic neets have become the majority of the userbase in the popular boards and think this is their hugbox where they can feel protected, they're literally like those american feminists, but instead of screaming RAAAAAPE they scream NORMALFAAAAAAGS when someone points out the truth.

Normalfaggotry is not some sort of state about what you are doing right now with your life. Are you in your basement, or are you outside working and studying.

It is a matter of way of thinking, of your basic mentality. Of the things you like, the reasons you like them and the things you find acceptable. One of the most important signs of normalfaggotry is how little they care about things, for example anime. They just use places like /a/ to get their social interactions, so they don't die from loneliness and being unaccepted by anyone. Something a proper anon would not care about, but just try to contribute with something of value. Instead it has become a cult of the self and what a special snowflake you try to be, just like tumblr, I am on the internet I am so cool, just like reddit. They don't really hold anything dear other than their own ego.

I don't remember /a/ being that overly fixated with moeshit when I came to 4chan, we used to talk about different stuff more often and even the old regular threads about Fate or other shit have changed drastically over the years, the only thing that maybe is still the same are EVA threads, except that now there's even more butthurt thanks to Rebuild.
and this>>122458963, back then not only we used to joke on it, we could even get serious talk about it without becoming overly defensive faggots that loathe on normalfags 24/7.
Normalfags weren't even considered back in the days, you could crack a joke or two about them and that was it, now it's one of the far too many boogeymen of 4chan together with feminists, Tumblr and Reddit, it's excessive, annoying and pathetic.

Normalfags love melodrama what the fuck are you talking about. They especially like it when people die melodramatically. sao sgk, akame, this show etc. People like us on the other hand commonly enjoy shows shows so devoid of real drama that normal people have no interest in them, like all the little girl moe shows. /a/ is also the only english place that likes those shows so it's obvious that people into them would congregate here, while there are plenty of alternatives for the normalfag stuff

Most anime is just bad at drama. Most of the Japanese entertainment industry can't into subtlety, so when they try for sadness it just comes off as exaggerated, campy melodrama.

For anyone not extremely used to it (as well as a lot of the people who are used to it) it quickly becomes impossible to take it seriously enough to feel profoundly sad. I remember when my mom decided she wanted to watch an episode of Fate/Zero with me and she was cracking up at the part where Zouken shows Kariya how Sakura was being wormed.
>>
>Why are normalfags so bothered by sad anime (melodrama)?
I think you mean the retards on /a/ who fall for the whole 'forced drama' troll.

There's good drama and badly written drama, just like anything else. The people who apply the forced drama buzzword to everything unconditionally are trying very hard to fit in by using /a/ lingo.

It doesn't exactly help that all the autistic Chris-chans that have been wondering into 4chan over the years have turned this place into a complete shithole. People blame the normalfag boogieman, which is complete bullshit. Normalfags don't care about shitting up a chinese cartoon imageboard all day, the only people that do this are these faggots. Endlessly clashing with one another all day over pointless nitpicking and misunderstandings because they can't understand nonverbal queues over the goddamn internet of all places.

I think a big part of it is that the US has a lot more variety when it comes to entertainment styles and writing than Japan has ever had.

There's a lot of similarity between anime, Japanese cinema, Japanese video games, etc. when it comes to the stories they tell, the characters they contain, and the themes they reach for.

I mean, people talk about anime not having any subtlety, but that's almost all Japanese media in general.

I enjoy anime specifically for its escapist qualities anyway.

If anime actually consistently adapted the material it was based on, it'd take about 12 years for the average anime to wrap itself up, with big gaping holes between seasons.

But instead, we get halfhearted attempts that doom a good start to a shit ending so that everything will fit into a set season.

I think the problem with this, ironically enough, is that nobody takes anime that seriously. Most entertainment executives see it as a glorified TV ad, and it's not like the author's going to see much of that advertisement money. It'll help him, but more in a marketing sense as he sells more LNs or manga.

>>122462706
LoGH is not your average show. It's probably the best anime to have ever been made, and is treated similarly to how tv fans treat The Wire (with respect). That's the basis of my assumption. Of course, this only counts if you consider both shows the apotheoses of their respective mediums.

Jesus Christ, people really need to stop saying this and actually watch the series itself.

It's incredibly flawed and has plenty of poor writing, its visual direction is horrifically bland and derivative, and its battle sequences are insufferably sloppy and outright poor.

If anything, it's an example of what not to translate into animation. It's definitely a good show (if only for the great characters that are mistreated by being put into such a mediocre production), but the pinnacle of anime?God fucking no.

The type of users that poster identified are not the same as the NEETs or average joes that have always been on 4chan in coexistence. Normalfaggotry has been actively discouraged because it is the complete opposite of everything that the board stands for. It's not a blanket term used to describe anybody that leaves their room or has a job, it's a label for shitty people that subscribe to shitty mentalities such as putting 'getting laid' on a pedestal or looking down on anything and anyone that are not considered normal or socially acceptable. These people have no reason to be on /a/ of all places and are rightfully issued a resounding 'fuck off'.

The autistic NEETs being referred to that are the problem are the diaper shitting, single digit IQ, mental degenerates who have seeped in over the years that get overly sensitive and blow up every time some idiot brings up their job, friends, or the fact that they leave their basement. Instead of ignoring and reporting their off-topic posts, they respond by shitposting relentlessly with frogs and outbursts about 'normies' that cause entire threads to devolve into pointless shitflinging that has nothing to do with anime or manga. It's far from being the only thing decreasing the quality of the board, but it's something that is clearly apparent.

Wrong.
Also it's because Japs suck at drama and usually do the same Soap opera shit they've been doing since the 80s.

>mfw all the autists are averse to the classic drama genre of tragedy because they are incapable of feeling

Seriously guys, I know you'd rather have your sexual dysfunction catered to with fan service or gawp at wicked awesome fights, but melodrama is a legit branch of storytelling, perhaps the most so as it addresses human problems of how fundamentally crap everything is.

It's bad enough that the western world no longer produces good melodrama, now you want to try and foist that degenerate view on eastern media as well?
>>
>>122463649
You're missing the cause and effect. I like anime and manga more than american stuff because there's a much wider variety of stories to be had from the japanese side. American tv does have some really nice gems popping up once in a while but the majority of it consists of subpar dramas, procedurals and sitcoms that can't seem to help but recycle premises until they land good enough casts and production crews that let them live for more than a single season.
>>

>Soap opera shit
Why is this buzzword so notorious lately?
>>
>>122463368
You're a silly man Komeiji.

Most of the English speaking people here will have lived in the western world and been exposed to a ton of it's media before having been exposed to anime and manga some time in their early adolescence. They have plenty of experience with western media and so a decent point of comparison with anime and manga.
>>
>>122463331
Name one Hollywood blockbuster in the past year that can be said to have any sort of artistic or intellectual merit.

Hell, at least the better animes have artistically interesting visual design and unorthodox story from a western standpoint. Western cinema has degenerated a very great deal since the golden era of the 70s/80s/90s when we still produced popular work with artistic integrity.

So I finally told my parents about this and it felt really good and I felt like I would share with you guys. I was in a huge, spiraling depression. I had undiagnosed bipolar disorder and felt like there was no way out. I had seen the basic adult swim anime when I was growing up, but never got into it because of the stereotypes.

About three years ago I reached rock bottom, and was really ready to kill myself. That's when I started watching anime because of an old roommate who watched a bit. FMA:Brotherhood was great to start, but it was only temporary entertainment. Then I watched Clannad and Clannad Afterstory. For the first time in the longest time I cried, and I cried a lot. After the last episode I just laid in bed staring at the ceiling, and I realized that I wanted to live. I know that sounds cliche, but it's truly how I felt.

I can't really explain it too well, but Clannad and anime as a whole really saved my life. I went to a doctor, got diagnosed, and have never felt better. My parents always wondered why I love anime so much and I could never really come up with a good answer. I would say "I just like it I guess, it appeals to my taste and the medium is really interesting". But I've come to realize that it is much more than that.

I would also like to thank all of you, not just the people of reddit, but everyone that I can discuss the hobby with. I know this is a mindless rant, and maybe even posts like this aren't allowed, but I just really wanted to share.

I live in Philadelphia and despite the fact that it's many miles from where James lives I see him there every day on my way home from work.

Each day I have to pass through this really shitty area of the city to get home and each time I go through there I see James sitting on the side of the road surrounded by empty bottles of whiskey and beer outside of some shitty bar. A few times I've pulled up really slow next to him to see if he's alright, I only ever do this when he's covered in vomit or blood, a few times he's sworn at me, thrown his retarded kid at my car and lashed out at me.

However recently I pulled up whilst James was vomiting onto his down's syndrome kids' face and I noticed him mumbling something about "fucking monkey fucking cowa fucking piece dog shit wife of mine", I was confused about what he meant and left his child to drown in James' vomit.
A block or two away I see James' wife getting pounded by 5 black men in the fucking open surrounded by 20 or 30 people as they all laugh at a picture of James which one of the men has stuck his dick through, I see his wife take more semen than an aircraft carrier and throw up outside my car.

James then staggers along the road with his pants around his ankles, dragging his kid along the floor and slurring everything he says. He then decides to swing for his wife who dodges him like some kind of fucking Navy SEAL and flattens James with one punch, who lands flat on his kid and crushes its face.

After the nigger fucking crew have moved to another block for their fun, I get out the car and take James' phone out of his pocket. I manage to ring Mike who is saved as "Guy number 15 who fucks my wife", I will note that Mike was pretty high up this list too, I then call Mike who turns up half hour later and throws James and his unconscious child in the back of his pickup. Mike doesn't say a fucking word and I get to keep James' phone. As he drives off Mike just shouts "MINECRAP MINECRAP" over and over.

It's sad, the longer I'm on /a/ the less fun it becomes. I don't know if I'm jaded or this place is actually getting worse. The more I watch the more I see most of the fucks on here as casuals and normalfags who don't actually think for more than a half a second about what they watch and simply parrot ideas they were given in hug box threads on this board. It's depressing, disgusting, and on a whole killing my love of the one place I can have legitimate discussion of anime.

I don't know what's wrong, I don't know if it's me. I just want old /a/ back. I just want you fucks to not be a crudely done parody of yourselves, because each passing season it's like I'm looking at the threads through increasingly distorted funhouse mirrors.

This isn't what we were, this isn't what we should be.

All my normalfag friends who watch anime only watch shounen. Yet they always complain that they can't find a new anime to watch. I don't see why anyone would limit themselves to one genre.

They don't give anime a try if it is a melodrama or SoL. Most of my favorites all fall under those categories though. They don't know what they are missing.

Even so, you're not even trying to say anything at this point, you're not even trolling, you're just spewing an endless stream of shit trying to make the experience worse.

No really, this website assumes you're over 18, just leave if you're under 18. You're not wanted by the community, you just make the experience worse.

Melodrama is highly manipulative and thus the feelings you get at the end of it all feels highly unrewarding and inauthentic.

It;s the reason why the punch at the end of say Chuunibyou does not compare to the one at the end of Hyouka.

I kind of understand why people would want to hide their feelings or thoughts IRL because there's ego and public image involved but here?Really?I can antagonize everyone here now and then be friendly in the next thread and no one would see any difference because my posts are not attached to a fixed image or persona.
The nature of the site allows and strongly encourages sincere posts,many people here already hide their feelings and power levels in real life constantly(which is fine in terms but i honestly think that you should not feel ashamed or guilty because of your tastes,hobbies or thoughts and i'm sure many anons here feel that way)and there's literally no need for them to do the same thing here,it's actually incredibly stupid to try to pretend in 4chan or any anonymous place in the internet.
