the other thread has reached the image bump limit
Mods please banish this to /co/. It has no purpose here at all. It will only make /a/ shittier than it already is.
>crimsun brade tearing rrough darkress like roseru
Reminder that the board has always governed itself, and the idea that something "belongs" here based on technicalities in the rules as opposed to the voice of the long standing community is blatantly wrong.
You know, OP, if you want to make a thread about the scanlated manga, it would help if you actually posted more than three pages of the single chapter that came out.
Not that it would do much in your favor, RWBY still doesn't belong here. Quoting a post from a few threads ago because ite explains the situation perfectly.
>The core of the matter is that RWBY is a Western IP. It will always be Western even if an anime is made out of it. Iron Man, Wolverine, X-men etc got anime adaptations in the past - did that open the door for "marvel is now anime so it can be posted here?" No. Same thing here.
>Not to mention it simply does not have a fan base on /a/ because /a/ won't touch it with a ten foot pole. Its fans are on /co/. They have had it there for years, so logically they should continue to have it.
>always governed itself
What worked in the past doesn't work wnymore.
Self-moderation isn't worth jack when retards reply to all the shit threads all the time. If it weren't for mods, those threads will and do hit bump limit.
JANNIES GOING HAYWIRE
MODS LOSING THEIR SHIT
/co/CKROACHES RUBBING THEIR PALMS TOGETHER GREEDILY
I don't think they are, they are just deleting the posts that have nothing to the argument at hand. I HOPE they are however going to make it clear in one way or another on what does and does not belong on /a/.
Re-read the post you quoted, that anon is explaining why the community (which doesn't want RWBY here) should be the one in power, thus keeping /a/ from turning into /v/ as you said.
You should choose the threads you visit better than that, of course you'll see that kind of shit everywhere for popular shows.
Not this newfag shit again. We even had many spiderman manga threads here during this years, and, yes, those anime adaptations got some threads, which then stopped because nobody was interested.
>did that open the door for "marvel is now anime so it can be posted here?" No. Same thing here.
There is no door, manga and anime gets discussed here if some people are interested, that's all.
No. Reporting the posts or thread sends a message. 'Self-moderation' in the current climate is just a thinly disguised excuse for shitposting and ironic shitposting is still shitposting.
Honestly, the artist is decent but the paneling is really lousy. There's no sense of kinetics or even a clear choreography here in the transition from one panel to the next,. It doesn't communicate the action very well at all.
Mods are babysitting them too, fucking newfags
Where's crack-kun when you need him? Someone sound the signal to summon him. This seems like the perfect opportunity for him to get into his rants.
Does RWBY have any yuri? If yes, someone let him know.
Back to back threads for hours and hours now, despite generals technically being disallowed.
I don't get why mods don't delete them by that fact alone. I don't understand what they could possibly be thinking to be allowing this through.
Fuck off you cancerous shit. Nobody wants you here. Get the message? No? NOBODY. WANTS. YOU. HERE. The more you force this shit the more we will hate you for it.
More importantly this shit is fundamentally a Western IP with a Western fanbase. Having a manga does not automatically validate the rest of the utterly not-/a/ material to be here, which is impossible to separate out because its fans exist explicitly for the not-/a/ material.
Several Marvel IPs are a step above RWBY by having literal anime adaptations. Did that make them all /a/ related? No. This is no different, people from /co/ just think it is because hurr they look like anime chars thus it must be /a/. No, it doesn't count.
Just because it has one thing linking it to /a/ does not mean it can be on /a/. A great deal of media has someway or another a type of manga or anime link but that does not mean it can suddenly become /a/. If the case were to allow this to happen it would have already been done by now and allowed. It hasn't and I hope that is where the mods stand.
I'll try summoning.
This is a safe anime related image that does not violate rules.
No fuck that, as long as you can post tell /co/ and the hot pockets to fuck off
>Did that make them all /a/ related?
I tried to discuss Wolverine.
Madhouse failed on all the Marvel Adaptations unforutnately.
I do remember some of them as well, but they quickly died because those adaptations were shit and people only watched a few episodes out of novelty anyway. Regardless, that doesn't mean that you can make capeshit threads in here now just because capeshit has a few anime adaptations. It's even worse in RWBY's case because people here dislike that series,
Post futa faggots since mods aren't deleting muh /co/ boogeyman faggots
tell the flaseflagging idiots to fuck off to /b/ then
Why are people so fucking furious over RWBY? The fact that it's clearly based on an anime style and its cliche's but made by a Western guy?
What do you people consider to be Anime/Manga, the style it's made or the country it comes from?
i don't know how anyone can take this seriously. I mean look at the facts:
>was created by americans
>same americans got their start making sci fi comedy content based on and filmed in a video game
>same americans milked said content enough to build a company out of
>hired asian america weeb who was good at cg modeling
>made shitty cg cartoon that warner bros japan bought rights to
>wbj is trying to milk the series they paid god knows what for by hiring artists and the guy who made the DMC LN adaptation (which was shit and did shit in sales)
guaranteed this is going to be ten times worse than the witch blade adaptation (and the ending to that actually made me cry despite the rest of the show being shit)
>Regardless, that doesn't mean that you can make capeshit threads in here now just because capeshit has a few anime adaptations
What the hell has that to do with that is happening here?
> It's even worse in RWBY's case because people here dislike that series,
Yeah, every series that gets rabid autistc haters for no reason shoulden't be allowed here. How fucking stupid can you be?
Country you moron. It's always been the country, at the LEAST it should be Asian in origin to qualify
The generals that are overlooked are usually allowed to stay because they have resident translators and such who help keep the flow of new content in. It's a completely different situation than you'd have with a show that has literally nothing new to discuss between seasons.
No, fanfiction does not count as new content.
In all honesty, if this was the mid-90's again, RWBY would be fucking badass.
As it stands, it's like two decades too late to be worth the effort that gets put into it. A pity, since the girl designs are cute.
Fucking cunts trying to police the thread is ridiculous
>the country it comes from
Let me put it this way: there's still controversy (albeit exaggerated) over whether Korean and Chinese stuff can be posted on /a/. Now, is the US further away or closer to those two countries?
You should be able to solve this.
You'd think that, but they're really not.
It has a small, vocal fanbase, just like they have a small vocal mlp fanbase.
The dub, and this manga production, as well as the borderline offensive amount of advertising it's getting over there are paid by rooster teeth. They're just trying to legitimize the whole 'western anime; thing by trying to make it seem like it's a big deal in the east, so that the weebs they're pandering to will think it;s japan-approved.
It's not. The nips aren't falling for it and only the most gullible westerners will actually buy into the marketing.
Because of the fanbase it'll bring, you fucking newfag.
This is fucking Naruto all over again. This shit needs to be exiled before it's too late. Hope Hiro doesn't make the same mistake as moot.
Mods and crossboarders are currently trying to force it down our throat and have gone as far as to try and delete any negative feedback
>The generals that are overlooked are usually allowed to stay because they have resident translators and such who help keep the flow of new content in
What's the excuse for Yuyushiki threads?
It was pretty much inevitably going to be like this. Mangas are an awful medium for action, especially Monty's style of action.
I really don't get how anyone in Japan or WB thought a manga was a good idea for this series.
I think there wouldn't be any problem if /co/ wasn't as autistic as /a/. Threads about manga-like stuff get either deleted or shitposted to death even if it isn't anything from Japan.
The community decides what goes on a board. If it's composed of rabit autistic haters who say they don't want RWBY in here, then RWBY doesn't go in here. Unfair? Probably, but that's how /a/ has always waorked.
well, its MANGA and MADE IN JAPAN so it belongs on /a/ - ANIME & MANGA, shitposter-kun.
i mean, seeing as the weeb who made it grew up in america and grew up with 90's tier anime and used tropes typical of that era to make an "edgy" mahou shoujo that makes madoka look like the bridge over the river kwai, it's no wonder that it can't get itself together.
Alright, with that in mind, by those rules. there can be no more of any series that began as a videogame. no fate/tsukihime, no idolmaster, etc because while they have an anime/manga they began as a /v/ franchise and have no place on this board, the same for transformers have to be on /toy/ or /a/, because while they had cartoons and comics they began as a japanese medium (diaclone) and /toy/ can't have any japanese figures that originate in anime and /a/'s buyfag threads can't have anything that didn't start as an anime/manga because THE MEDIUM CAN ONLY BELONG ON THE BOARD BEST SUITED TO WHERE IT ORIGINATED FROM.
If one thing can only go on one board and there's no overlap like ever shitposter here wants, then the mods need to enforce that double-standard against /a/ too.
In other words, fuck off. If its got an anime or a manga that is released in japan, it can go on /a/ because boards can sometimes have overlap where a subject has several boards it can go on. And while RWBY, as shit as it is, started off as a western show it has a manga, so its technically /a/ relevant, like it or hate it, because RWBY's not bad enough to need its own containment board like MLP did.
It's a mixture of both the origin nation (the US), and the fact that it really just plain sort of sucks after you watch it.
Bless Monty Oum. He really tried hard to make something good, but what he made was just waaaaaaay too fucking behind the "anime" industry to the point it ends up like that French-Canadian weeaboo guy who created Code Lyoko and I think Basquash.
Even flash animation cartoons are smoother and more watchable than the outdated CG that RWBY is.
Roosterteeth should have just told Monty to get his brainchild project sold as a premise to a larger company to get more professional staff working on it (with Monty ostensibly directing and doing basic character design, rather than models).
RWBY's just too close to amateur work in this day in age. Granted, a really great shot and A++ for effort, but it shows that it can't quite compete in watchability unless you already wanted to watch Roosterteeth works.
They were also moved to /jp/. Also, Love Live threads are trying to come back as well. Mods need to crack down on generals again. I don't mean General Wars 2, I mean General Apocalypse. Ban every single OP on /vg/, ban generals site wide, ban anyone who makes a second thread after one thread about the same series died due to inactivity, etc. They go against the very nature of 4chan and enough people hate them to overrule moot's "it's what the userbase wants" excuse.
It still belongs on /co/, not /a/. There has been multiple Marvel anime, and they all stay on /co/, where they should be. Not to mention RWBY threads are already on /co/, and we don't need more crossboarding scum.
She's kinda bland in my opinion but definitely cute.
One (mostly dead) thread per week about a series that's still reasonably popular.
Why should they be banned? That once-a-week standard should be enforced for all other generals, in fact.
So I just went over to their general in /co/ to see what they thought of all this and holy shit their thread is fucking cancer. It's nothing but weird fanfic greentexts and fapping each other off to characters. It's somehow worse than the shitposting here. If that's what these fans are like they can not stay here.
Writeshit is going to kill /a/. The mods seem to give writefaggots more rights than even drawfags, who are contained to drawfag threads and boards specifically because taking and posting requests ruins threads and is against the rules. The difference being that every newfag fresh off of tumblr can write some shitty greentext and pretend to be a content creator.
Some guy started the gateway anime one a couple threads ago
>The community decides what goes on a board.
Yeah like narutards. One piece retards, bleach faggots we fought those battles and at that time moot just said it is anime fuck off everyone use the filter.
That shit is manga and it is published in a manga magazine in JAPAN just deal with it.
>sold out on movie screenings
Oh boy, a single theater in a cinema sold 40 tickets, what a roaring success. I'll bet half the people that bought tickets thought it was supposed to be the next big pixar film freshly imported from hollywood
>even mangakas praise that shit.
Paid endorsement is absolutely nothing new, anon. Or do you think Jose Bautista actually drinks a Booster Juice every day?
I hope copypasta becomes bigger again. Some of them were really well written. Far well written than the arguments of today. And the archive is dead. Newfags can't tell what is and isn't pasta right now.
They had an anime adaptation earlier this year, and they're currently waiting on a second season and a movie. They look pretty harmless though and they seem to respect the board enough to only make new threads after their current ones reach page 10, so I don't mind them.
Yeah, just like they only came back after the admin himself shitposted the board to death.
See you again in 2 days with better clean and in month for chapter 02.
Oh christ I looked at the catalog for /mlp/. Why does this exist?
Is this series THAT big in Japan?
Considering the setting and the manga art being shown in this thread, it feels like it'll be a lot cheaper to get some random Japanese LN instead. Unless the licensing or whatever is somehow even cheaper, which I find hard to believe.
It's the exact same thing as Monmusu. They were told to go to /jp/ until the anime started, then after it ended no one told them to fuck off. I didn't even realize they were still posting here.
RWBY is a gateway manga of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the weapons, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole chuuni faggotry and everything about the RWBY world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.
RWBY is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no RWBY threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.
>I for see a never ending general in your future
I don't. Manga threads will probably be allowed since they're actually /a/ related, but you're delusional if you think it's going to be your home away from home.
They're all made in Korea but people like to pretend it isn't.
There used to be a time when /a/ wasn't autistic about korean/chinese stuff. Either this people getting assblasted thing is relatively recent(1-2~ years old) or I somehow managed to miss all of the autism until a few months ago.
I mean I know that /a/ is still inherently shit but the waifufags over there put those here to creepy shame. I wasn't on 4chan for mlp but I get the feeling these people are like an early brony cult.
They must have fixed the name at some point.
I just checked the show for curiosity sake and holy shit what the fuck is this garbage? Why are these people allowed on /a/ now?
Self entitlement and image issues
It's literally worse than Naruto. Just because there was an X-Men anime doesn't mean that it belongs on /a/. Report and hide like the rest of us.
Mods are newfags and the only one who cares are Umaru shitposters
it's not big at all.
Warner Bros. Japan isn't a huge movie studio like it is in the states. it mostly deals with licencing, importing, and dubbing of western work that may appeal to the japanese demographic.
if this thing even takes off enough to get a few tanks in, it'll barely sell a few thousand.
It will die off in a year and nobody in Japan will remember it existed.
It was shown in theaters and got third in the japanese box office
The reaction on this board would be nuclear
I don't give a fuck if its about the manga. People who love this shit in the first place are the only kind of people who are going to follow the manga.
So in other words these people are here on /a/ shitting up the place even more.
Guess pic related isn't allowed then since it was headed by Stan Lee?
About time someone posted it
asshurt is my fuel
He kind of is actually. In the actual show he had more screen time and development than the titular character and probably has the most broken semblance on top of his HUEG AURA
>xmen, ironman, spiderman get anime adaptations
>/a/ doesn't bat an eye
>this gets an adaptation
>/a/ goes nuclear
somehow i doubt any sub group let alone HS will bother to rip it and sub it (hs being the exception
seeing as how they don't sub anything)
>one chapter out so far
>series isn't popular in nipland
>unironically using "yfw"
Even if that miracle does happen, take a look at what happened to the aforementioned Marvel shows and the MLP adaptations on /a/.
I'd be able to watch something RWBY related without being turned off by the awful visuals.
God fucking dammit.
Whoever is the mod that wants this to be posted here is trying really hard to do it.
Just make those threads for translations and don't make generals and it might be fine.
Probably because no one tried to force that other shit on the board
>series isn't popular in nipland
But it actually is, shitposter-kun.
but then in the back of your mind, you'll remember who made the source and why it was shit
just like how even if you decided to buy/play halo 5 you know the series died at 3 and 343 and microsoft are just milking a dead horse
Take a look at what I'm replying to
We're talking about why it got a manga adaptation, and I explained about why it did, and gave an example of how large it got
I don't give a shit whether it's allowed or not, it's being discussed, so I'm discussing it
I dont get if you make an anime like rwby without people knowing the writer is from other country it will be at the same generic level as most shows a like this season. It should be like a generic mai hime/otome
No one believes you're from /a/ faggot. No point arguing it though because you deny,deny,deny
Considering we can't even break 100 posters I doubt it
>/a/utists trying to shitpost and derail an /a/-related thread
You guys are fuckin' pathetic
No newfag-kun, I don't care that you're sucking mod dick because /a/ was mean to you and you don't like the elitism. That's how this board has always and will always work: self-moderation.
You need to deal with that or fuck off.
belongs on >>>/co/ faggot
read the thread, most of it is off-topic
But it's manga, and manga can be discussed on /a/.
If you don't like you can hide the thread.
Mad now? Hell, even so-bin has made some OC.
>just look at this thread
You mean some /co/fags pretending they belong, then immediately getting called out and getting shitposted into oblivion, forever halting any chance they ever have at taking root and discussing their non-/a/ series here?
Yes, it's working phenomenally, you fucking idiot. The community dictates what works, not you or a newfag mod.
>Why is this thread still alive then?
Because even if we don't have a mod like Kinomod that understands the community to enforce the community rules, the community will still make sure these threads never take off the ground.
>still no official word on whether these threads should be allowed or not
Do we really have to contact Hiroyuki every time there's a minor issue like this? What's the point of mods in that case?
>It gets an anime adaptation
>Better by default for having passable animation and tolerable CGI
Might be able to judge it based on 3 episodes instead of just 1.
And so /a/ has once again fail to prevent more cancerous people on their board.
Just another step closer to /v/. You guys are coming with us to hell whether you like it or not. We use to be good friend after all.
This is going to be a really fun next few weeks.
I literally haven't seen any of this, except for a 3 second webm, but I'm about to put everything on hold to catch up just so I can discuss it and piss you dumb fags off.
>Regular threads on 2ch
>Got a manga adaptation
>Has merchandise made by japs
>Warner brothers backing it up
>Steady stream of fanart on pixiv
It's not ultra popular, but it is popular. Stay in denial
Don't mind me, just posting best raibu.
Come on guys, lets be civil. Just because 9 anons out of 9 don't want this here doesn't mean we should bully /co/ shitposters.
What do /a/ regulars enjoy out of curiosity?
Serial Experiments Lain and Ergo Proxy for sophisticated phedoraviduals like ourselves?
The western shit show is still banned moron.
