What is the appeal of SOL in Japan?
Who are they trying to appeal to with shows like K-ON! and Non-Non-Biyori?
>>
>>135117957
People that are dead inside and incapable of enjoying normal life, which is mostly japanese salary man.
>>
what's the appeal of making meta threads every 10 minutes? fuck off
>>
>>135118100
I'm literally asking a question.
How am I even implying or adding myself to the equation in this thread?
>>

>Who are they trying to appeal to
Me.

>>135117957
you know how little boys read superhero comics because they want to be just like those heroes?

same thing
>>
>>135117957
Men like cute anime girls

>>135118824
Little boys are not the superhero comic demographic
>>
Atmosphere
Entertaining character interactions
Good visuals
And of course, cute girls.
>>
>>135117957
They help a bit with the pain.
>>
>>135117957
Kill yourself faggot, some people just want to relax.
>>
>>135117957
I guess socially awkward losers who long back to their childhoods when everything was still fun and simple and even the smallest and most mundane affairs had a sense of wonder to them.

Not even being insulting, that's just what I honestly think.

Dunno, not like I care though.

Comfy shows are best shows.
>>
I relate SOL to seinfeld.
Theres a general theme, but without a plot.
For me atleast, the sense of humor in SOL is ironic.
The characters are similar to Kramer in that the actions they do are made humorous given context of the character.
>>
>>135119011
you sound very relaxed
>>
>>135117957
People with no lives.
>>
>>135117957
For people that have become distant from real life or are bored with life so that they can feel like they are living.
>>
>>135117957
Pathetic people with pathetic real lives.

Like myself, except I don't really watch SOL and find many of them rather dull.

>K-ON!
>SoL

sure, if you count being raided by a mongolian a part of the average life in Japan
>>
>>135117957
Compelling story and deep characters.

Fuck off if youre too dumb enough to have someone explain it to you. Go watch some edgy garbage if your so compelled.

>>135119473
You are truly overrating SoL and overestimating the value people find in it.

It appeals to adult men who need some cute girls doing cute things as a form of escapism. Some light humour helps, but is barely relevant to it's popularity.
>>
>>135121524
>as a form of escapism
>implying all of anime and game industry is not escapism
Also SOL and cgdct is much less escapism
Its just happy time anime which makes you uppity even on a dull day
But whatever, edgy /v/ tards cannot find happiness in other people's happiness
>>
the appeal of SOL is the same as the appeal of one punch man. its the same thing.
>>
>>135117957
>Who are they trying to appeal?
Me. It is appealing to me.
>>
>>135121422
it's an edgy /v/ buzzword post

I used to be like you, OP. Then I watched some of the few good SoL shows, some other slower paced stuff. And you know, it's nice. Sometimes you want to fantasize about a life much more exciting than yours, and sometimes you want to fantasize about a life much less stressful than yours.

As with all things, moderation is needed, and a sharp line between fantasy and reality. The problem with people losing sight of those things is never the content of the fantasy, though. Thinking so is just a wish for everyone to be like yourself.

Yes
>Entertaining character interactions
Hardly

No

Yes. The weird thing is "cute girl" apparently is a giant fetus with childlike limbs and an alien-like head.

>>135119269
>I guess socially awkward losers who long back to their childhoods
The first thing is probably true but I don't think it's about longing for childhood.

>>135121524
>cute girls doing cute things as a form of escapism
Mostly right.

>>135119659
>People with no lives.
>>135120266
>Pathetic people with pathetic real lives.
Some of this with all of the above.
>>
>>135117957
SOL with moe I can get. It's qt girls doing qt things.
What I can't get is SOL like SZS and uchouten kazoku. Never managed to see the appeal. It's boring as fuck.
>>
I like to fantasize that I am an attractive high school girl in Japan who carelessly spends her days having fun with friends while in reality my life is a fucking trainwreck.

SZS has cute girls though and is entertaining. Coon family was pretty boring though.

You must watch at least 100 anime to post on this board
>>
>>135124957
SZS is one of those things that's hit and miss if you speak japanese and have knowledge about japans past and present affairs, pop culture, manga and anime. On the other hand it's mostly just confusing as fuck if you're anything but a nip. It's supposed to be comedy, but if you don't get the references, kanji-plays and puns there's nothing to laugh about. So it loses it's appreal.

People conveniently forget that autistic menchildren have been around since for-fucking-ever and it's certainly not kids who are invested in 20 different universes for one character and collect all the merchanside of a single superhero.

>>135117957
Some of us live and work in environments with no cute girls at all and/or have never talked to one.
>>
>>135125455
Yeah it's one of those show you absolutely have to know nip and understand the play on words.
Even if the translation tells you the meaning it's like explaining a joke to a retard so it's ruined.
>>
I'm not a big fan of SOL, I have tried to get into multiple series, but they're just so fucking boring. The only one I was able to finish was NNB. However, NNB:R is one of the best anime I've ever seen in my opinion. I just don't like talking about SOL because every SOL anime's fanbase is shit.
>>
Yes, who could possibly enjoy a relaxing show with charming characters?
>>
>>135117957
>Who are they trying to appeal to with shows like K-ON! and Non-Non-Biyori?
everyone
Its supposed to be a happy going show intended to lighten up the mood
