You were samefagging this all throughout last thread and even tried to make your own thread, which failed miserably.
Sorry, I understand you're extremely angry and upset, but this is 100% going ahead and there's nothing you can do about it. 550 votes so far.
Non Non Biyori is AOTY and a better anime than Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I didn't vote for Arslan because of QUALITY, but I wouldn't disagree with you otherwise.
>because I don't have shit taste like you
You can't say that when those are the only ones you've seen.
I will never understand people like you.
I love how I can't tell the difference between legitimate bait and delusional NNBfags anymore.
>Look at me I'm intelligent: The Perfect Fedora
>SAO for girls
I asume this is bait but I'll be gentle and give you the benefit of the doubt.
Are you autistic anon?
>pretty much the only meaningful product placement were the engine sounds which were cool
>the rest of the show is a really good space mahou shoujo
Yeah, I'd say it was good, at least I really liked.
Teekyuu (multiple seasons)
Come fight me
Yeah, ok this is getting ridiculous. S.M Crystal was, feet down, the best anime of 2015.
Yet all I keep seeing are silly 'wun poncho men'.
Develop a more subtle sense of taste before expressing your non-desu opinions.
Top 3 will obviously be.
In any order.
Yes that is my top 3.
Well the most obvious factor was the animation quality which greatly exceeded the original.
Then there are the more abstract qualities like the energy and spirit of crystal that made the whole series a tour de force whereas the original was one clunky monstrosity after another.
Winter: Yuri Kuma
Summer: Akagami no Shirayukihime
Fall: Noragami Aragato
AOTY: Yuri Kuma
Houkago no Pleiades
Non Non Biyori Repeat
Shirobako would have been #1 but I always consider it a 2014 show, so I didn't think of it when submitting my vote.
>All of my votes are fujobait except Hibikek
Little Witch Academia 2
Animator Expo (This better fucking count, it's the best thing that happened to the industry in a long while)
Psycho Pass Movie
Too many people just jumped in without any knowledge of Ikuhara and got lost. It deserves it, but I doubt it hits top 10.
it was creative but it looked sloppy and you could tell the narrative was compressed
still liked it, but when you take into account non-tv and shirobako then it hardly makes the cut
Is acting like boring moeshit for lonely manchildren is better than OPM a new meme or something?
You just don't get it. You have to have a high IQ, be a member of functioning society, read lots of high difficulty books, and be an overall empathetic human being to enjoy moe, CGDCT anime.
If you don't enjoy them, then you are either clinically stupid, a manchild, a weeb, or an edge-master who deserves to be culled from society.
Trust me, I'm a scientist.
Hey "kill yourself because I don't like your post" retard, where did he say the Parasyte anime wasn't inferior to the manga? Can you show me that or are you only capable of spitting out overreactions?
It started off good then it tried to take turns within turns and it just fell apart as soon as they started talking about pink hair's backstory. I just dropped it by then.
What I don't understand is how anyone got anything good out of Overlord and Kekkai Sensen.
Is there really no one voting for Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso?
>liking a show adapted from a manga and then adapted from the anime...
I'm seeing a disturbing lack of Show by Rock in this thread. It's not my number 1 pick but definitely in my top 5.
Symphogeah > Dragon Ball Super Crappy.
3. Symphogear GX
4. Sore ga Seiyuu
5. Wakaba Girl
This year was just alright.
Would Mushishi's second season, which technically aired last fall fit in because of the concluding OVA that aired this year, or is it just the OVA that qualifies?
Someone's was going to reply to this talking shit about the show, but now that I've included this they're make a snarky remark about this comment itself. And then talk shit about the show.
1. Gatchaman Crowds insight
3. Non Non Biyori Repeat
5. Death Parade
I thought about voting for Japan Anima(TOR)'s Exhibition but I felt like that would be cheating
I will if no one else does, but I'm not going to post it until the season's over because making a premature poll just to be first is retarded.
Do people like the idea of voting for their top five and tallying votes like this one does more than just voting for their favorite?
I'm afraid you are wrong, lad. Fellows like I who watch moe shows have ascended to a high level, and we do not waste our time on a show that isn't high quality, deep, and intellectually stimulating like a CGDCT.
You suggested that we read more books. What books do you read? Fahrenheit 451? 1984? No wonder you can't understand the depth of moe anime when you read that trash. Have you even read Homer's Epics? The Epic of Gilgamesh? Or even The Republic by the good man Plato?
Giving our intelligent insight on your favorite anime is like providing intelligent insight into a children's book. Meanwhile, us patricians will discuss how the face of Yui Hirasawa can move a nation to war, or how Tsumugi Kotoboki's wealth affects the world economy. If you truly want to grasp the philosophical implications of moe anime, I'm afraid its too late. You have to be born talented and high class like the rest of us.
You can still have serious discussion on /a/, Death Parade threads were quite good, also threads about less popular series are usually nice. Sure, there's too much moe on this board, but at the same time saying that anyone who likes moe should kill themselves makes you sound like a twat who only watches mature anime for mature people such as yourself. There should be a place for anything, just in moderation.
Its not that our attention is short, it is that our attention is valuable. Your 'constructive criticism' shows that you simply cannot grasp the intelligent material of a moe anime. To understand, one must do a hefty amount of prior research. You say it has poor drama, character interactions, and character development, when in reality, you simply failed to grasp it. I cannot blame you, however. Dabbling in psychology is a must, and the higher quality moe anime requires a firm understanding of the most difficult of psychological and sociological subjects. World building and setting is not required in such anime, as we who can understand have already been in such places. Why spend time fleshing out a world we already experienced? The artists behind moe anime can then entirely focus on making characters who easily surpass the depth of even the most well-written characters in the history of literature. A lazy plebian like you will never understand the hard work and intelligence needed to take pleasure in such artistic works of entertainment. The only emotion I have for you is pity.
>Death Parade threads were quite good
Maybe if you filtered out all of the /r9k/ garbage. 2000 posts of FUCK WOMEN SLUTS GO TO HELL is not what I'd consider good threads.
I know it was almost a year ago, but try to remember things accurately.
I cannot explain to you the qualities of a moe anime because you cannot understand. You merely enjoy what you are able to understand. I cannot fault you for that, as you are only human. The ones you claim invoke intelligent discussion are simply at your level of intelligence. To you, it is engaging and challenging. For us, it is child's play.
If one were to compare our levels of discussion, ours would be a round table with the topic of socioecomics and what we could do to improve our small little planet, while yours is the equivalent of a high school assembly discussing the possibilities for a fundraiser for your school trip.
Alas, my time is short. So this will be my last reply. My stocks and bonds require my attention, and I plan on consuming another episode of the artistic work named Azumanga Daioh written by Kiyohiko Azuma.
I've only been to 2-3 threads about it and they were nice, maybe I was just lucky.
Alright, ill bite. First of all, that guy is obviously a shit posting avatar-fag, why are you even responding to him? As for the whole "moe is shit" thing, just like everything else, it is to be enjoyed in moderation, only a select few people actually only selectively watch CGDCT. Most people either claim to do so, but are lying through their teeth, or are just plain shitposters. I watch stuff like NNB because it's nice to lie down and relax sometimes and watch something that just lets you melt your troubles away. I can understand that some people don't enjoy the genre at all, and i can live with that, just like people that talk about OPM, i know that it's not just people crossboarding from /v/, it's just a bunch of /a/ shitposters. Some people (Like me) appreciate the quiet, laid back stuff like NNB. And some people prefer action packed stuff. They're not mutually exclusive, you can watch moe and action and appreciate them both. Some people just prefer one thing more than the other. And some people just shitpost and act like fucking children all day, don't judge an anime based off the vocal shitposters.

One Punch Man? More like One Non Non Biyori Is Better Than This Anime Man
3. Hibike Eupho
4. Yuru Yuri OVA
5. Teekyuu s4
pls no bully
AOTY threads are an endless iteration of a 1:10:20 ratio of crossboarders:trolls:idiots taking the bait
Glad to see Pleiades isn't completely forgotten
Definitely my AOTY with NNBR in close second. Those were the 2 that really grabbed me. I'm thoroughly enjoying OPM and Utawarerumono this season as well.
Strangely, no, I'm not a fujo. This year has just produced a batch of shows that I actually enjoy watching that draw fujos to them like magnets to ball bearings, a coincidence which has never happened before in my memory. I guess fujos also like food, sorcery, mecha, demons, and Persian history.
marathoning underwater ray romano season one once a week for the last ten weeks wiped my memory.
I don't remember any of the thirty or so airing shows I watched this year, so let's go with jojo season four.
KODOMO NO KORO NO YUME WA, IROSAENAI RAKUGAKI DE. OMOU MAMA KAKISUBERASETE, EGAKU
I somehow forgot Working!!! I should have put it in second and bumped Punch Line off the list.
Sounds like I have to watch Arslan Senki.
Wait someone else watched this?
It was okay, nowhere near AOTY.
>implying K-on! isn't anime of the year, every year.
Dying android girl anime
Monster girl anime
Subaru Magical Girl anime
Petty bandmates anime
Lesbian island (+mechs) anime
not that anon but here was why i was dissapointed, but still enjoyed it
>music was mediocre when compared with Mizutani's previous works
>Hotaru was a shit and brought down every scene she was in
>pacing consistency was fucked
Still enjoyable despite all this, and contended for 5th spot against Overlord
What the fuck? How come no one has mentioned game of laplace
AND it has traps
>cmon senpai desu
No matter what I say, you faggots are going to shit all over my taste anyway, especially since I don't have any generic CGDCT on it.
I've been on /a/ since 2007. NNB was genuinely boring.
For the record heres my shittaste list as well.
1: Utawarerumono: Itsuwari no Kamen
3: Prisma Illya 2wei herz
4: Symphogear GX
5: Dog Days''
To be fair, i'm not familiar with Mizutani, but i thought the music was great.
Also i didn't enjoy Hotaru for the first season, but when they got rid of some of her obsessive side, i really warmed up to her. And what do you mean the pacing was fucked? For a CGDCT SOL, i thought the pacing was pretty spot on.
Thanks for being literally the only person to actually criticize the show, and not just try to fit in with the whole "NNB is for fags"
>5: Dog Days''
I can tolerate the others, (at least your top pick is good) but holy shit there's no way you watched more than 5 shows if fucking Bunny Shota Days is your 5th favorite
Superior taste coming through.
1.One Punch Man
4.Shokugeki no Souma
Whoops, i'm just fucking dumb, i thought you wanted us to say how many from that list, don't mind me. I don't have a list, i just keep it in my brain, i've probably seen about 15 or so, not a great year for me and my specific tastes.
Its S3 baka and I see nothing wrong with this season.
Maybe because im a bratfag.
YRYR fucking sucks. It's almost as bad as Gochuumon yet you faggots continue to circlejerk 24/7 about muh brat muh TOSHINO KYOUKO
Also, OPM for AOTY? Seriously?
Fucking obnoxious mate.
So what happens if someone misspells the title, used the English title or some alternative way of putting the show down like NNB? Will it have the separate listings? Is there some oversight who'll fix stuff like this during the tally?
OP will obviously fix it since he's going through all the trouble of using forms instead of multiple choice
I hope for the sake of his sanity that he's written some sort of script to sort it for him.
You realize any list of AOTY constructed 4chan instantly has no credibility or merit, so vote away. Because you all got bad taste. Non Non Bayori better than Eva. Go hang yourself, because you're the cancer that is killing anime.
Oh shit thanks for reminding me anon.
The show was nicer than most shit mentioned in this thread.
2. Stardust Crusaders
5. Moe shit
Since this year was one of the worst in anime i'll just post a pic related to something better.
Ryuko says her show is better than all of 2015 combine.
I concur, but only because i like tits/.
It's a tablet so it counts as a mini pc, faggots
>almost as bad as Gochuumon
What the fuck are you talking about? Gochiusa is AOTY.
Oh well, I'll trust you this one time.
But! As long as it's not a phone!
Here's the real order that things should go if you have any real sense for good shows.
Not this pussy slice of life, and Moe garbage.
Don't leave me hangin' bro.
The fact you guys don't like any of these shows makes you the cancer. You just think you're not the cancer because you're a new form of WORSE cancer that uprooted the old.
when people think these animes suck for this season, discluding KLK cuz it's not 2015, it makes me realize how bad /a/ has gotten, in what delusional world are those bad animes.
Go back to your slice of life // moe faggotry, while the rest of society watches good shows. Even Crunchyroll fags have better tastes jesus...
Nice buzzwords and shit taste.
>All the crosssboarder/facebook-tier writing style in this thread
I'd call individual posters out on it, but those posts make up half of the last couple hundred. /a/'s quality has been in absolute freefall this year, people don't even bother calling people out on emoticons, teenager-level abbreviations, and open normalfag blogging because it's gotten too prevalent to even meaningfully respond to. There have been a couple times in the past where /a/'s quality has drastically dropped but come back, but I fear this drop might be falling too deep to come back from.
oh did you just try to match me and step onto my level, no no peasant, off you go now. back to the fields with you my cave-dwelling negro.
nah this ain't no reddit nonsense, hate them too. Nah this is O.G. made quality hate.
>YRYR fucking sucks. It's almost as bad as Gochuumon yet you faggots continue to circlejerk 24/7
I couldn't give less of a shit about your choice of AOTY but why don't you shove that bigotry of yours up your ass, fuckface.
>Oh, I'm so sorry these show didn't live up to your oh so beautiful and magnificent standards of current anime, princess.
Pretentious faggot. Jesus Christ /a/, is it so hard to go a bloody day without everyone ripping each other's dicks off and waving their own like theirs are of high-tier or something.
So mad kid
Stay in your comfy little general hugbox then my friend
You'll never receive any harsh words from your buddies there even if you think that this failure of an adaptation deserves AOTY.
what is this? -- I don't even...
pic related; as I imagine you (A vivid memoire)
which is why it must be rectified and restructured in my image, the image of a god.
Nevermind, this movie just released like an hour ago, it's now taking my #1 spot.
The new Ghost in the Shell Movie... Epic
1. Yuri Kuma Arashi- undeniably AOTS, admittedly my first time watching an Ikuhara, but was enough to convince me that he is a mad genius and get me hooked on his stuff .
2. Overlord- One I originally skipped and came back to mid season only to love it. Still can't get over the fact Clementine is voiced by the same seiyuu as Madoka.
3. One Punch Man- Good show and takes the award for best Op of the season.
4. Show By Rock!!- judge me if you will, but it was great and I even came to like the 3d a bit by the end. Cyan is probably the best catgirl we've seen in a long time. The sequel better be a spinoff starring the Shinganz.
5. Jitsu wa- I don't get why everyone seemed to hate this. It was charming and funny.
Comments on other shows...
I can't even remember the title of this and can't be assed to look, something like How to pick up chicks in a dungeon or something. Passable show, obnoxious fanbase, and I still don't understand how Hestia has the appeal she has.
Etotama- It was cute but sort of dragged on and the MC was completely fucking pointless
Underwater Ray Romano 2- good so far although I'm kind of behind. I just hate how they changed to using the sort of standard generic moeblob type loli with the high-pitched voice you see in every show today. Aruru was fucking great and actually acted and sounded like a kid and now we have the standard fucking moeblob diabetes inducing bullshit. Pisses me off.
AZ2- Only show I came to hate. Inaho was somehow even more of a gary stuu. If that fucking eye of his is so great why can't they just give it to everyone in the armed forces. The fuck?!
As a long time fan of GotS, i was skeptical yet very impressed with this movie, there is hope for anime yet. it may not be lost and destroyed with this current generation after all.
When I see these other shows it makes me sad for the future, for it will never be good as it once was.
See I watched GATE but as a fan of the manga all I could think about while watching was how inferior it was. Ruined my enjoyment but I can see how those who hadn't been exposed to GATE previously might have liked it
Hey, we should meet up sometime. I'm sure experiencing your charisma firsthand would give enough of a reason for me to finally propose again to my ex, bury my current wife, and somehow forfeit my income for the next five years.

5. FSN UBW
6. Yama no Susume 2
8. Aldnoah Zero
Given how divisive these threads have been, it definitely will. I expect Non Non Biyori or OPM to win and everyone who is arguing against it will rage at OP saying he rigged it and /a/ is now over run with cancer
"These types of polls are not representative of /a/'s taste because only those MAL/reddit faggots are more likely to participate in these types of shitty threads and therefore skew the results towards One Joke Man"
Whoever doesn't include LWA and something from Anime Expo is a complete pleb. Also:
>there are people too dumb to get Concrete Revolutio
>Pages in category "2015 anime television series"
>The following 160 pages are in this category, out of 160 total. This list may not reflect recent changes (learn more).
Holyshit, it is that many?
I just realized I watch less than 10 new anime this year.
I dont know if short count because if so in need to vote for Somera and Hackadoll
In any order:
One meme man
Skeletor: the anime
It will end up like this and you know it.
Yes, I think the top 5 thing is fun and contributes to the popularity of this. Also, while no /a/ poll has any credibility anyway, it does actually make the poll a bit less worthless than first place only because it may have less of a meme-show bias.
1. Jojo Part 3 - Egypt Arc
4. One Punch Man
5. Prison School
Honorable Mentions - GochiUsa Season 2, Punchline, Plastic Memories, Etotama, and Rokka no Yuusha
I'm still mad about the VGA awards.
Houkago no Pleiades
Sore ga Seiyuu
Saying it how it is.
I honestly didn't expect anything to knock NNB:R off my AOTY spot but then I blazed through the Fafner franchise last month and caught up with the airing series.
I don't understand what you are implying.
Non Non Biyori Repeat
Prisma Illya 2wei Herz!
Houkago no Pleiades
Great year for cute things. There should be a separate poll for shorts in my opinion. Lots of really good ones too.
"Moe" is the only thing that anime and manga do better than all other media. "Moe" is the primary justification for the existence of anime and manga.
Summer > Spring > Fall > Winter
Summer had NNBR (AOTY) and Wakaba Girl
Spring had Etotama, Re-Kan!, Ninja Slayer, KinMosa
Fall is okay. Only Hackadoll and Gochuumon really stand out for me.
Winter was shit, but at least it had YnY and Maria.
I would like to confirm my taste as the worst unironic one here.
