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.

>>134509674
K-ON sells.

/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.
>>
>>134510269
What about it?
>>
>>134509674

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.
>>
>>134509960

The West quite often has the same kind of taste really, that's why this whole Blame Japan thing is stupid.

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

Their preferences have an effect on the industry, and ours don't.

Simple as that.
>>
>>134509674
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.
>>
Japan actually likes Gundam Seed Destiny.
>>
>>134512537
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 Twitter is anything to go by, it's not like they consider it to be a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination.
>>
>>134512942
>they don't consider Symphogear a masterpiece

Confirmed shit taste.

>>134513375
Just GX. Symphogear's decently liked now.

>>134509674
If they didn't have shit taste the 90% of anime that airs every season wouldn't be garbage

tfw whether you should question /a/ shit taste or nips' shit taste because both of them pander shit anime filled with loli and moe.

>>134512301
The funny fact being that even less Westerners were willing to buy anything Rokka-BDs than the Japanese.

I wonder how many Westerners bought the western Etotama-BD releases.

The general public is shit wherever you look. People are largely tasteless and incompetent. Why should japan be an exception?
>>

this
>>
>>134513829
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).

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.
