One-Punch Man already did that OP.
>>
>>133675771
Yeah, it's good and many anons like it.
>>
>>133675771
No because there are already a lot of people who see it as the overrated one-note anime that it is.

>>133675700
The closest thing to do that was Non Non Biyori.
>>
Yes. It was kill la kill

but now we pretend that we hate it because it was mainstream and /v/ liked it too
>>
>>133675790
Nice meme. I watched Kill la Kill from the start and dropped it 7 episodes in. Hated the animation, didn't laugh at any of the jokes, and the action was too over-the-top.

If it helps I also disliked Gurren Lagann too.
>>
>>133675700
We just need another "underdog" anime that ends up being ridiculously good. Although, that means it'll become mainstream popular and then /a/ will hate it immediately after it finishes airing.
>>
>>133675771
It was good before they released anime, now its too popular
>>
>>133675790
Same as >>133675813
But then people said "NO IT GETS BETTER LIKE RIGHT AFTER THAT" then i watched it until the last episode. I'm not giving them the satisfaction of having me finish the series it can go fuck itself.

Same except I dropped it after 3 episodes.

Hilariously, probably this. It wasn't very popular, but the consensus was that the writing was terrible with its asspulls and Slaine suffering forever.

it was probably just a very vocal crowd, but I do miss Geass Sundays, though.

As for others, maybe TTGL?
Lain? Cowboy Bebop?

>>
>>133675920
I don't care about OPM either, except that I also don't find it funny. However you're apparently not allowed to say anything negative about OPM. I've been banned twice for giving my opinion on the series, in admittedly a thread that was meant to shitpost OPM, but my posts weren't shitposts. It's one of the reasons why I don't say anything about the series anymore, not out of fear of being banned, but simply because I don't want to be unable to post about shows I do care about.

Most people like FMP due to nostalgia. Seems to be rare for relative new-comers to enjoy it nearly as much. Plus the fact it's an adaption means there are bound to be plenty of complaints about it.

All that happens is that certain big fanbases circlejerk so hard that they convince themselves everyone on /a/ cares about their shit.

/a/'s probably too large, fast and fragmented for things to completely take over the board like they used to.

>>
>>133676001
no a large portion of the board hates the show you just don't hear them because mono threads are an echo chamber of praise and circle jerk.

/a/ has one piss threads just as much as mono threads and you can't possibly say that even half the board likes one piece.
/a/ likes to brag about being a quality board by being elitist and they say it the reason that separates them from /v/ but it doesn't really work. there are still naruto threads and shonen threads daily. we even have monster girl thread daily even though the anime ended and the manga hasn't released anything in months, what the fuck do they talk about all this time?

>>133675790
Kill la Kill was Reddit the Anime before it came out.

Allowing Naruto was the death knell of /a/.

someone post the screenshots of the entire board having 90% Geass or TTGL threads.

that was back when you could post emotes and lol without being called a retarded autistic normalfag reddit nigger. a lot of people from those days clearly went to reddit
>>
>>133676636
Is your implication that every single /a/non cared about Geass or Endless Eight? Or does just shitposting about it counts as the anime uniting the board?

From the looks of it, they talk about their favorite monster waifus, post reaction images to some posts, and have a bunch of drawfags drawing monster waifus. Nothing too special. Oh yeah, and they are eagerly awaiting news for a second season.

As long as they keep their stuff contained in one thread, I think it's fine.

Nope.
When Geass was around the board was big enough to have constant threads with constant replies but small enough for the idea of 80% of /a/ watching one show all at the same time to be feasible.

Now we're just plain huge. We all have our own niches and don't really interact with the others, atleast not in a positive way. The idea of all of us watching one show together just isn't likely anymore. Not to mention mods have gotten more insistent on getting rid of spam and pushing things into general threads.
>>
>>133675700

FMA Brotherhood was the most overrated show I've ever seen. How people could compare this to Code Geass is beyond me.

>>133676997
>How people could compare this to Code Geass is beyond me
Because they are both overrated.
>>
>>133675700
Just judging by thread activity this year we had Cross Ange, Hibike (maybe?), Aldnoah and currently One Punch Man (all for good or for bad). I don't think any of these were as popular as other shows from past years like Kill la Kill.

There will be.

A boy falls in love with a girl.

Unable to confess, he is gifted with by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.

But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.

Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

This is true if you ignore the contrarians that seem to be attracted to /a/ in recent times. They live to go against the board majority. Not to say that everyone should like OPM, but I know mindless contrarianism when I see it.

No. If something ever comes close, people will start to dislike it on principle.

It was a tripfag who wrote this story. I don't remember his name.


But why did Keit-ai become famous all of a sudden? It was being posted occasionally for year-or two, and nobody paid it much attention. Then suddenly, the usage of it jumps midsummer.
>>
I come to the conclusion that this board is cancer. From the threads and certainly to the anons. I been here for years and seen the steady declination of what was once a decent board for discussion to constant shitposting and faggots arguing for the sake of arguing. While I won't say this board is as bad a reddit (where everything is rainbows and dissenting opinion is squashed quickly) this place might even be worse than MAL.

You can't even have a discussion on here about liking a show without some pretentious asshat reminds you how shitty your opinion is with a crappy smug anime picture. Fuck. I wonder how bad this place gets because I truly think this board is one of the worst on the entire site.
>>
>>133676000
Don't sweat it anon. All the mods on this site are children that get upset when you have an opinion opposite to what the board is promoting. I have been banned a few times elsewhere for disagreeing with popular opinion. Everything it's perfect and everyone must agree is chan chan chan Chan's opinion.

I like opm manga, I usually find the anime adoptions pointless as I know they'll only run for a dozen episodes or so which bums me out so I don't bother getting attached to it.

I'd watch a yotsuba to adaption, though, probably nukoduke too, them are too cute

anything that passes a certain threshold of 'good' will become popular, and the more popular something is the more people will see it and the more opportunities there will be for people to dislike it (for any number of reasons)

thus the only things that can really be universally liked (among those who have seen it) are things that are good, but not THAT good such that they get popular.

You just made me realize that newfags will someday refer to watching Kill la Kill with /a/ in the same way that people nowdays refer to watching Code Geass with /a/. How disgusting to imagine.

Also, you're full of shit. Not even nearly one third of all threads were Kill la Kill.

I don' see how anyone that claims to like Bake can hate SS. It's the natural conclusion to most character arcs.

Plenty of people disliked Space Dandy. The threads for season 2 were pretty chill but it was far from the most liked/popular show that season.
>>
>>133693325
>someday
>newfags
KLK was 2 years ago
I'd like to point out that if someday is even just in another 2 years whoever joined at klk's time will have been on /a/ for 4 years which is actually a significant portion of even the total time /a/ has existed.
Calling someone who has been here for 1/3 of the time a newfag is unreasonable.

Not to mention 4chan isn't the place to care about how many years one has been here, since you're supposed to judge people by their posts.

You complain about comparing CG with KLK. Were you there at the time, when CG Sundays were a thing?
Because while it definitely was great, and while it definitely was bigger on /a/ than klk (although we had less members) and even though it was a far better show, the shitposting did reach unbearable levels, just like with klk. It's not wrong to compare the two, for a variety of reasons.
What I miss in fact is the more relaxed attitude /a/ had, with less people like you hating fun and only caring about the past. I wish we could go back to 2007-2008.
moot said it was his favourite period too.
>>
KLK really was the last time a single anime took over much of the board. It was already very popular and then the backstab episode made it go nuclear. At any time on the board there would be a discussion thread, a Ryuko general, a Satsuki general, a Nui general and some other character (Nonon, Mako, Dosh King) general. That was a weird time
>>
>>133693702
Mostly because the quality is not the same. Also, not every detail needs to be told.

KlK united MALtard, /co/ and /v/ermin cancer. Not much else.
