I honestly don't see the point of moe anime, it's unorigial, cookie-cutter, and uninspired. Yet compaines are dead set on using it to sell their shows, despite the fact the only money earned from said shows are based on the selling figurines. I mean honestly, who is this stuff even for?

Moe is only thing anime excels at in comparison to other mediums.

Japanese NEETs like moe ( one of anime's main demographics) so they'll make it. I personally don't like it either, but as long as there's demand for something, there's product for it.

It's consistent, and it's effective at what it does, that being showing waifus being a cutes and distracting us from the harshness of reality.

The point of anime is distraction, some do this through robot shit, others through plot shit, moe does it with cute girls.

Aristotle said when there are ends distinct from the actions, the ends are by nature superior to the activities. So with the same goal of distraction in mind all the specifics of anime are automatically inferior to this goal

there is barely comedy and it's just bad or boring jokes

I honestly don't see the point of fast food, it's unorigial, cookie-cutter, and uninspired. Yet compaines are dead set on using it to sell their burgers, despite the fact the only money earned from said burgers are based on the sodas sold. I mean honestly, who is this stuff even for?
>>
>>143479859
The comedy in moeshit anime is generally subpar, though. Azumanga Daioh and Galaxy Angel were examples of great comedy anime with the moe of the characters as a nice side dish, but shit like Lucky Star and K-On is all about shoving how "moe" the characters are in your face while using uninspired bland humor as nothing but a way to get the moe across.
>>

>>143479794
Yeah it's all your post deserve. You sound like a newfag that just discovered moe is a thinhmg after watching 15 anime and that you're upset because it's more successful than the shit you like.

Fuck off or lurk for 2 years before posting.

Hence why it's shit. Moe is something that people are supposed to feel for themselves regarding characters they like. Entire series revolving around blatantly forced corporate-manifactured moe is just plain disgusting and artificial. Moe is a great spice, but you can't just remove all substance and make an anime solely revolving around that.

I know you're new to this and you're having a hard time trying to express yourself so I'll give you a hand. What you're trying to say is that you can't get your head around the idea that somebody would watch something primarily to see the characters and not for the plot or the comedy. Well, watch more anime or just shut up for the benefit of the many.

Every time. This kind of "thinking" is why soccer moms hate metal and videogames, and while other "im such a nerd xD"s such as yourself look down upon anime.
>>
>>143480281
No, moefag, you don't "know". It's precisely those who are anime veterans and watched the industry decline over the years that complain about the mindless shit newfags like you watch. You shut up.
>>143480284
That's how anime was before Lucky Star.

You're a funny guy. Now shut up and go watch some moeshit until you learn.

Oftentimes originality doesn't matter, execution does. If an anime makes you feel good and alive and happy, then there's merit in it so long as you don't remain complacent in that genre. Challenge yourself to try things you would overwise avoid.

It's funny because every time moefags try to claim "b-but moe existed back then too!", they go for completely false equivalences like trying to claim that kodomo and shoujo anime are the same thing as Lucky Star and K-On. You're the one who doesn't know shit about anime.

Moe exists in nature too and the nips saw that. The only thing you can argue is the intensity of moe, which is highly subjective.
>>
>>143481182
>more literal meme arguments
Try all you want to muddle the definition of moe and make it a vague nebulous buzzword, but we all know exactly what it refers to here and what the issue is with it.

Moe as an aesthetic is good. Moe in a character is great. Moe being the entire raison d'etre of a series, however, is cancer. CGDCT shows wouldn't be such an issue if they weren't as fomulaic and unfunny most of the time.

Well what would you consider cute girls doing cute things? Love Lab? Azumanga Daioh? Lucky Star? K-On? Nichijou? A-Channel?

I find people who use moe as a complaint are generally talking about "shows I don't like that feature a cast of girls", which is not really a relevant criticism.

I like Azumanga Daioh and I don't like A-Channel, I like K-On but not Lucky Star, are they all moeshit? Are some moeshit? Is is subjective? Is it objective?

How about you give an actual fucking criticism instead of some retarded meaningless buzzword? WHY do you not like the shows you do not like? Are you condemning an entire genre or just a few shows from a select genre? If you think the entire slice of life and comedy genres are worthless then it makes me think you're a complete newfag.
