Oh, and Frozen won anime feature film of the year
>>
I really don't get the appeal of Frozen.

Damn, our "ping pong AOTY" meme reached Japan? God damn it memelovers.
>>
>>122897017

It was so mediocre. I tried watching it to understand why normies were going gaga over it but just dropped it after 30 minutes and skipped through the seek bar to the ending in several jumps to get the gist of the remainder.

It has that one 'good' song but really I thought it no better or pleasant than any other Disney hit song from prior movies.

I guess the lyrics hit the right notes for the tumblrinnas who want to 'let it out' and strong independent womyn.

Maybe Dragon and Wenge. Smile in particular is one of the most boring characters that exist in animation. Oh, but that was the point, so clearly it's amazing and deep.
>>
>>122898802

Kill yourself. There's nothind deep about Ping Pong.

So you're admitting Smile is just an utter shit character?

>expecting Japan not to go nuts for a story about a literal suffering Ice Princess who is suffering out of her fear of her powers doing harm animated by Disney.

Japan likes characters like Miyuki too so yeah. I just find it funny that Disney probably unintentionally designed an animated movie that appeals more to Japans moe sensibilities than any Japanese studio could ever hope to.

>>122898802
A good character doesn't have to be likeable.

Japan is a country where middle aged men love their princesses as much as 6 year old girls do.

>>122899271
Only if you decide to overanalyze and read into the show to create depth that doesn't really exist. It's the same thing people do on /v/ to make the Souls series seem deeper than it really is.

It's sad because 2014 had some really good movies.

>Barakamon and Giovanni's Island should have won.

Barakamon was just as overrated but at least it had proper animation.
>>
>>122898751
I'm not the guy who you were replying to, but I agree on all of them.
The animation, though, it just broke all of the rules so I'm surprised it did well.
After an episode or two, I felt like what I wasn't "bad" art, drawing, or animation; I described it to a friend as "maybe this is an externalization of how ugly every character is on the inside"
I'm still not sure, because the jagged lines and jumpy/inconsistent animation never did anything to hurt the story later, and they got harder and harder to notice as time went by... but I still don't know what they were thinking.
>>
>>122899341
You don't even need any analytical skills to realize that the show made a point of the role of the invincible robot being pushed onto him and that being able to reject it meant gowing up for him.
>>
>>122899606
Here is your reply.

I bet /a/ would hate ping pong if it was actively discussed on reddit and tumblr.
However it wasn't the kind of material to be discussed on reddit.
If it was discussed there, reddit would be le eddit.
But if it was, /a/ would hate it. And because its mainstream, /a/ loves it.
I hate this mentality and this hivemind.
Pingpong is overrated as fuck.
Accept that you don't like it, but simply pretend to fool yourself just to go with the flow.

If I wanted to make a predictable, unoriginal show for hipsters about terribly drawn chinks playing gay tennis for people too unathletic to run, I wouldn't because it would be SHIT.

If Yuasa animated his own defecations a substantial portion of /a/ would circlejerk over it.

Some of the songs are pretty good but it's really mediocre against even the mid tier pics of the golden age of Disney. It's incredibly safe in every way and doesn't really do anything that surprising.

Long-time daily lurker here. Based on my observations, /a/ has two favorite anime:

- The most discussed anime here, as well as the anime with the largest total number of viewers who liked it, is Evangelion. Has been since day one of /a/. There's been an Eva thread on /a/ at almost all times since day one.

- While not nearly as popular overall because of a much smaller total viewership count, the anime which appears to have the highest liked/seen ratio on /a/ is ARIA. You almost never saw anyone talking shit about ARIA here until the new anime content was recently announced, which seems to have made the show a popular trolling target suddenly.

>maybe, but you cant deny the fact that the author had an intended message when he first drew pingpong

Yeah, the intent is quite clear: seething disrespect for his readers. The cardinal sin of any performer or artist. If all was right with the world he'd never be published again for this most grievous of all artistic transgressions. I'd liken Ping Pong to Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music.

Oh but that's just the truth everywhere on 4chan anon.

People are more focused on talking about anime on /a/ and about who is and isn't watching the show instead of focusing on the actual show. You'll have people's entire enjoyment on a show hinge on if they can talk about it on /a/ or not and that's when you get "HOLY HELL! THIS SHOW IS FOR FUCKING YFAGS! THIS SHIT SUUUUUUUUCKS!" etc etc.

Try harder, friend. Just because your Space Blandy bullshit was absolute garbage, doesn't mean you have to crap all over one of the few decent shows to come out last year.
Just for giggles, what was YOUR AOTY last year. Any troll responses like Glasslip or Mushishi will just give it away immediately, so try for something a little different.

>Still havent answered though
And will not, as I see no question.
>>
>>122906990
I live quite well with myself.

There's a four-year gap between TTG and Ping Pong, but this does not support the affirmation that he only puts out works once every four years. It would be stupid (although convenient to shitposting) to assume such a thing, as it only takes into consideration a tiny portion of his work and not it as a whole. From this history, there's much more evidence he would put out shows once every two years, so the four-year gap "pattern" is grossly mistaken (as any pattern in this case is).

Alternatively, I can ask you to "look at the time interval between Kaiba and TTG".

And I still don't know how can silly anon claim the awards were rigged from this assumption. I guess it's sheer denial, just like the samefag claims every time a similar AOTY conclusion pointing to Ping Pong appears.
