We can all agree on this.
>not liking lezborgs
I'm pretty sure cute, dorky cyberlesbians are the one thing that could unite all boards under one banner.
Except maybe /tg/. /tg/ are huge faggots who dream of sucking scaly dragon dicks, but they aren't a real board anyways.
True, there is enough shit taste on /a/ itself
I thought only SoL anime were allowed to compete for the official and objective AOTS title?
/a/'s Official and Objective AOTS is almost always CGDCT SoL. Exceptions are allowed when a season does not contain a full-length CGDCT SoL, or when the only full-length CGDCT SoL of the season is dogshit, as was the case with Sakura Trick.
But it's not as boring as the other SoL alternatives this season.
>Implying /m/ doesn't love it as well
But not /a/. I haven't seen a single thread for it this whole season besides one dead one on the week the first episode aired. Better slice of life that people actually watched should be there.
There really isn't many shows that feel worth of being called aots, because this season is pretty shit. Konosuba is decent but not the Ping Pong/Shigatsu of anime that MALfriends would like you to believe. I'm on the pandora side, because that shit's way too endearing, despite some pretty heavy flaws in direction. The music's great quality but it's way too haphazardly placed. It really throws off the tone a lot. The characters and world are amazing though and the plot is simple but still engrossing. It's worth a watch for sure.
Also, Clarin is indisputably best girl of the season. It isn't even a contest.
>We can all agree on this.
To be honest it was the only show this season I waited each week excited to see new episode.
I watched 6 other shows, the rest I dropped, KP was the most comfy to watch.
>stronger focus on yuri compared to S1/S2
>far less repetitive humor compared to S1/S2
>comfier than S1/S2
It was better than S1/S2. The only thing S1/S2 did better was sakuga.
>b-b-but muh colors
Jesus, that one autist going on and on about the colors was fucking annoying.
>using Ping Pong and Shitgatsu as paragons of greatness
But /a/'s Official and Objective AOTS is yuri at least half of the time, anon. You must be new here.
That is the joke my eggplant friend.
Nobody. Many SoL just happen to be boring. Pandora isn't.
>Also, Clarin is indisputably best girl of the season.
I dispute it.
While KnP indeed is my personal favorite show of the season, you should know by now that AOTS threads are filled with nothing but cancer, and declaring any show AOTS in the OP usually kills every following thread about that show. For an example, look at how NNB threads were before all those AOTS post and what happened to them after that.
tl;dr OP please stop being a faggot, aots threads are shit.
>For an example, look at how NNB threads were before all those AOTS post and what happened to them after that.
NNB threads were shit from week one of the first season when IRC suddenly started invading them and spamming lewd in them. NNB threads were always shit because of IRC. You must be new here.
Given how I remember them being much more peaceful while I watched the show back when it aired, I can't agree with you. Nowadays any mention of the show brings forth a fuckton of shitposting because it got popular enough to be called AOTS.
So, now comes the big question of how well 紅殻のパンドラ did in overseas (kinda irrelevant) and Japan (more important).
Answer: Unfortunately, not good at all. Neither gaijins nor nipponjins were really that wowed enough by the adaption to buy more manga volumes or music cds.
Chances for Kadokawa to ever invest in a second season for PitCS:GU, even if there were enough material for it, are slim to none.
At least it's not an utter disaster like LnM.
>Kanojo to Kanojo no Neko
>Natsume Yuujinchou season 5
Except that it did for every single episode.
Shouldn't you go back to >>>/v/ if you don't even know what >>>/a/ is like?
One dying thread once per week is hardly representative of anything besides a desperate fan that likes a dead show.;
You know it would have blown peoples minds 10-15 years ago once they found out that there is an anime airing that is a collaboration between the writers of GiTS and Excel Saga.
I didn't make the image. It is, however, the image that made me pick up the show, so thanks, whoever made it. I normally skip anything that says "action" on LiveChart, but your cute dork collage was just cute enough to make me break that rule and watch AOTS.
Gochu 2 was better than YrYr 3. Euphonium is dogshit, swap it for Kinmoza 2. Koufukku Graffiti was shit, Winter had that um, that one show, there was a show that was good, dammit.
Hanayamata was the superior cute dancing girls show
OP here. I'm not IRC, but I've noticed they like to copy my posting methods, especially Rugg.
That show was good for 2 episodes, it was fun ingenious interesting, had action and lewd. Then went completly boring and retarded and Nene gone from total airhead badass to a retard that can't even function without holding hands.
People who liked GiTS and Excel Saga watched it. Unfortunately most of the board hasn't watched those shows either.
>most of the board hasn't watched GiTS
>shot of Nene entering a locker room of overly-muscular men changing. They all scream out of embarrassment as this scene was meant to be a parody of the main character walking into the girl's dressing room trope. Their toned and muscular bodies add further hilarity to the scene considering men who look as strong as they do aren't expected to scream like a girl as they do here.
Wew you got me, without a doubt you proved that KnP is a sausage-fest.
I won't really go nostalgia oldfag, well, not any more than I have to, but what's bringing people in now? What's the entry anime?
Those were like the shows people expected you to have watched before even discussing anime, sort of like lurking before posting.
C'mon dude, it's the current year. None of those anime are entry level anymore. Probably less than a third of contemporary /a/ has seen them.
NGE is still entry level because it's /r9k/bait like Watamote and Welcome to the NHK but no one cares about these other ones.
Sadly, we live in the era of bland moeshit now, so barely anyone cares.
What about the mayor, the cop, and the boy Nene kissed?
There are really 4 male characters in KnP.
The main antagonist and his android servant, a police officer, and the governor. Beyond that cute girls are the main focus of the show, you could argue that BUER is male but he's moreso a pet character than anything. Galko-chan features a higher rate of male screentime than KnP does, regardless the focus on cuteness is far more present in KnP which is an important aspect for these lists, keep in mind that GJ-bu and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei have also been on these before.
SnK is still going strong I see.
I assume that people like OPM, as it is kind of a gag anime about the shonengenre, and seeing as everyone has watched DBZ during childhood, they can probably relate to some of the humor.
I forgot about that boy, either way his role was utterly minuscule in regards to the whole story
Also I couldn't remember his exact political role so I put down governor instead of mayor.
Moot agreed don't bother him about it.
Please pray to Aqua and join Axis cult to get our lovely tomboy anime animated
I'm not sure if my aots is dimension w or Dagashi kashi. Overall though it was a good season that I had no hope for but was surprised. Erased was a fun ride through all the threads too and /a/s reaction was wonderful.
Hello, newfag. Meme show with vocal fanbase is always what goes on these charts. It's just we can't use Konosuba this time because it's actually popular and that would hurt our hipster cred.
I was an anime fan for 17 years before I watched Akira.
Give it some time. Now that the anime aired, that means that some scanlation groups will have become aware that it exists, and start doing some translation for it. If they care at all.
Are you getting mad little kid? Are you so autistic that anything outside of your safe space belongs on another board? /a/ isn't just your personal waifu board nigger. Get out.
I've seen CGDCT shows every season for the past decade. And I have been watching anime for a decade before that. To say that that premise is boring shows how entry level you are. Not only in your range of taste in anime, but also your taste within the genre that you like.
That's the point of these. Insecure autists making charts of CGDCT anime to prop up their own closedmindedness and to get a laugh out of trolling the fuck out of newfags and autists who care enough to respond to them complaining about the choices. The only times it's harmful are when places like Sankakucomplex and Yaraon/similar Japanese sites cite these as representative of /a/ as a whole since they don't understand the shitposting and take everything at face value.
It's all IRC shitposting that's been going on at the end of every season for years.
I really hope the concept dies before it turns into it's own genre. SAO was a fucking mistake and I bet pic related is also coming eventually.
That's like saying you don't waifu characters who like/end with the MC.
Get some taste.
Or go back to /v/
What is actually the purpose of these kinds of threads?
The only people that will agree with a specific choice are those that dont want to shit all over said choice. A consensus will never be reached.
OP, and guy who made >>138917555 >>138917592 >>138917728 >>138918009 here. (Yes, I made both 2015 charts. Let's see if you can figure out why.)
I make these threads because they consistently generate prolific discussion of anime, which is kind of the whole point of /a/.
>I make these threads because they consistently generate prolific discussion of anime, which is kind of the whole point of /a/.
Oh, also, the other reason I make them is because I want people to watch the anime I like if they haven't already. If my AOTS images have caused even one person here to find a single anime they got happiness out of, that makes me happy as shit.
>Winner of anything
You can't like what you didn't watch to begin with.
OP here. I'd never make a thread like this for that purpose, as that'd be a violation of global rule 3.
>harem LN adaptation
I can't believe /a/ degraded this much
>"Oh no, girls aren't the perfect moe blob pastel colored tards
But Galko, the titular character, literally is? She's literally the biggest waifubait of the season.
Extremely good looking but shy and inexperienced, gets easily flustered when the subject of sexuality is brought up. Boyfriendless virgin. Her dream is to be a mother. Despite being extremely popular, she's nice towards the nerds and doesn't bully them. Protects little boys from savage bullies. Watches anime and manga and discusses them with subhuman nerds. Never makes fun of anyone and helps people in trouble. She makes 99% of other anime girls look like 3DPD in comparison.
There would be a quality full-length all-girls CGDCT SoL in every season in a perfect world. We do not live in a perfect world. This season, the worst season in recent memory, is a prime example: we get graced by GodAni, but it's monster of the week battleharemshit.
Now you can colour in your own preference.
>Could've just had a nice Pandora thread
>Instead OP had to be a huge fucking faggot and do the AOTS meme instead
Konosuba is aots. Only the small minority of /u/ likes pandora. It's not fun. It's not funny. It's boring. In comparison to all the other stuff that's been discussed recently, it's irrelevant and unknown. The only reason why you call all dissenters as from MAL is because they rated it a 6.3. Fucking Pandora Hearts is more relevant, discussed, and liked than this anime. It's bland, stale, and just not fun all around. It's listed as comedy but the comedy is shit.
Face it. The only reason why you think it's aots is because the single fact that it was yuri.
>Face it. The only reason why you think it's aots is because the single fact that it was yuri.
Incorrect. Do you see Sakura Trick here: >>138917555
No, you do not. Why? Because it was SHIT. We have standards for our yuri here.
I like the show for the weird cyberpunk stuff being treated like everyday life. Dorky lesbian doing cute cyberthings just a cool little extra treat, like ice cream on your cobbler.
Spring: Boku no Hero or Flying Witch.
Summer: Shokugeki S2/Servamp/Handa-kun.
Why don't you watch the first two episodes in between making rec threads and make up your own mind you fucking spasticated mongoloid
>weird cyberpunk stuff being treated like everyday life
We should have more shows like this.
OPM's failure is that it forgets that it's a parody and most of the time goes serious battle shounen. The only parody element is Saitama.
That's not the case with Konosuba
Seriously, I might like OPM, but as a parody it seriously sucks
Because you literally asked if it was any good instead of seeing for yourself.
You had 6+ weeks to spend an hour and decide whether to drop it or even lurk the threads or see the sales figures but instead you are here asking retarded questions like the typical crossboarder you are
I love you too man!
but I really don't care about the show. I read through the summary at the beginning of the season, marked it as clear harem shit and never thought about it again until I saw this thread
also good job on the /v/ boogeyman, works great doesn't it?
good reading comprehension m8
KonoSuba was great but it gathered a worse audience than Erased.
Then why did you ask about it if you have no intention of watching it?
Do you not see how retarded your responses are?
Kinmoza and Gochiusa are both really average. They have some fun characters but are weighed down by a lot of shit. Gochiusa looks very pretty, although that shouldn't give it many points when the contents are not all that special.
why are you so mad anon? Boku dake also has 5 threads up and it's hardly considered AOTS. Just because it's popular doesn't mean it should be considered as AOTS
psst, pro tip, the S stands for season
That's always been how /a/ has based AOTS on
Purely on popularity because there is no single voice that can speak or you could just use sales.
Personal opinion counts for shit
Then we get massive shitshows like this thread because everyone needs to voice their opinion and then we get retards like >>138924409
Grimgar was my AOTS but who cares I'm probably wrong I'm just angry at the world
Locodol was fun and cute, but I wouldn't really call it overly comfy.
>That's always been how /a/ has based AOTS on
The AOTS thing is retarded shit anyways and always has been. With that said, when first season of NNB was airing, the threads were semi lively, but it was still one of the shows that the majority of anons seemed to enjoy.
Grimgar was my AOTS but who cares I'm probably wrong
the same as OPs but I still think he's a huge fucking faggot for making this dumb thread in the first place.
I watch it for the eyes. It also got a lot better once they started bringing friends along instead of just following Sherlock Homo around for 20 minutes.
Don't complain. That's what makes /a/ great. There's no other place on the Internet like it. The rest of the Internet circlejerks over SnK and OPM while we circlejerk over K-ON and Non Non Biyori. The Internet needs /a/ whether you like CGDCT or not.
I've started enjoying it a lot more once I started embracing the badness
Also Nao best girl
Pretty much this.
/a/ AOTS it's also based on the thread's quality and the fact that people who like the popular shows tend to be the first to shit on other shows threads.
I'm sure most of the people that forced the cuck meme last week are probably the ones designating Konosuba as their AOTS right now.
But the fact still remains senpai
Koukaku no Pandora is a better anime than Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I'd probably say that either Rakugo or Konosuba is aots, probably Rakugo though.
Yah, nah. Those "AOTS" are all forced charts that no one agrees upon. As a case in point, there is this delusional user >>138925223 who thinks their anime deserve AOTS because of what they call the "QUALIITY" of their ghost town threads despite the overwhelming consensus on /a/ for a different anime. The only reason why people are shitting all over their niche anime is because of how they try to push their anime as AOTS despite having only a small vocal minority on /a/. It really is ironic that they are the biggest shitposting group on /a/. Next, what they use as a measure of what is AOTS is not only niche and unpopular but subjective. They don't use sales or popularity of the show on /a/. What they use is their own dicks and not the collective dick unity of /a/.
Burden of proof is on you. Anon said Konosuba is trash tier comedy and instead of asking him why he thinks it is like that, you just jumped in to be a contrarian faggot who can't take an opinion.
What's the point of these posts when they do jackshit?
What's the point of anything?
Other than the fact that's is has one of the biggest asspulls in recent history.
>A fucking chocolate bar
As expected, you have neither the proof for your claim, nor anything to refute mine. And it's hilariously hypocritical of you of all people to call something contrarian or saying someone can't take an opinion when this thread is filled with your contrarianism and you yourself have been getting butthurt about opinions that treat your "comedy" trash like the trash it is.
This. OPM was one parody element in an otherwise serious world and the result was that the comedy sucked ass because it only had one joke repeated over and over again and the serious parts couldn't be taken seriously because you knew they were just the build up to the same 3 episode long gag you'd just seen.
KonoSuba makes everything into a joke as part of the bigger joke of MC expecting to be in SAO and never making it there.
Because you're not actually serious and looking for a reason to watch it you're just shit posting. No one has to make you watch anything, watch Konosuba if you're curious. It's just funny and has cute girls with odd personailities.
>considering the objective factors of a collective census
Anon pls, stop deluding yourself. There will never be an actual agreement between users because "muh taste", so it's simpler to adapt the choice to a previously established collective identity.
>If it's not anime, then it's 500+ posts.
Anons just can't help it, they love discussing history.
I thought you guys would choose Galko, since is the only SoL of the season.
Android & full body cyborgs > organic 3dpd bodies
But is it good? I skipped it because nobody talked about it and didn't had anything interesting to do so, and it looked way too generic
plus the visible doll joints are disgusting.
Ouya-san is the only true SoL show this season.
I fucking spit my drink, alright, will backlog. But I still think that Galko would have been a better choice, it's not only a SoL but also cute as fuck.
