Why does everyone here say the Japs have shit taste? Any notable examples?
At least battle academy harems can have some semblance of variety, if the author tries.
Idolshit is always, literally always about nothing but cute girls singing ridiculous doki doki songs, dancing silly dances and being oh-so-pure.
>tfw you can have your waifu for yourself and the dirty elevens won't touch it
/a/ just wants to justify (the supposed superiority of) its collective tastes and preferences. That's all there is to it. They're only more vocal because they're powerless to do anything about it.
Because it deflects the issue away from examining themselves. Everything is always someone else's fault and you alone are the sole guardian of all that I'd objectively great taste and stupid shit like that.
Psycho Pass got a second season.
Kokkuri san doesn't.
Character and manga popularity polls as well as sales provide a look ate elevens' taste.
By no means is it a generalization but shitty battle harem LNs, manga and anime are more popular than some more interesting and original ideas.
However because we only see these figures its easier to call them out collectively.
If you saw /a/' taste like that you might as well call them out.
As whether a manga or anime you like gets another season or continues to run depends on it's sales, and the deciding market for that is Japan's you may get angry at them if they dont allow for s2.
The same could be said for getting angry at other anons that insult a show you like, its only natural to defend what you like.
In the end everyone taste's is different and that isnt a bad thing.
Sometimes though its bad taste like loving >>134510269
Pretty easy actually
Show I like doesn't sell well = Japs have bad taste
Lots of people ignoring that these are the general masses, and by their logic the "west" loves stuff like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Gray
The fact that GX sold like hotcakes is an example. I like sapphogay more than I'd like to admit, but those sales should've happened during season 1 and to a lesser extent G. At least it gets us more in the future I guess.
Uncancelled preorders + the live tickets + the rising popularity of the past seasons in hindsight + the excellent word-of-mouth advertising in the months leading up to GX fully explain the sales all on their own though. If
>they don't consider Symphogear a masterpiece
Confirmed shit taste.
tfw whether you should question /a/ shit taste or nips' shit taste because both of them pander shit anime filled with loli and moe.
The general public is shit wherever you look. People are largely tasteless and incompetent. Why should japan be an exception?
That could have something to do with how there are less people who watch anime and even less who buys anything anime related ever in the west. Also that it's more expensive in the west or maybe not even available(especially in europoor).
>GX killed off berserk Hibiki
>even if they somehow write it in, Dainsleif version is still stronger and it will be pointless
it's a grim future lads. Hibiki popping those berserk eyes is done now.
Just because Maria's berserk is useless doesn't mean Bikki's has to be. Could pull some God Ki type of bullshit and have her own body start manufacturing it's own reverse relic cancer or some shit.
Go figure the shit taste thread gets converted into a Symphogear thread.
I don't have much to say about them, but I don't think I'll ever get over the fact that SZS near its end and more recently Etotama sold like shit.
>either no serialization
>Or getting a bullshit serialization
>Goes to shit because trying to bolster popularity
Yea i wonder why?
It's a pretty good shit show, to be fair.
