>>144108281
The most boring one, sure.

Overly saccharine and obsessed with trying too hard to be cute and refusing to have any negative emotion whatsoever while having the most boring settings possible.

>>144108281
Yes

Doesnt watch SoL

Pretty much.
>>
>>144108281
It's shit. Anime was the best at cyberpunk sci-fi. But it was rather a short period of time. In general anime isn't really good at anything.
>>
Besides psychological, it's pretty much the only one I watch.
>>
>>144108281
no, and really genre is somewhat irrelevant considering how much weird shit is out there.

Demographics are more important, honestly. If you have to have only one rule for maximizing the quality of the anime you watch, it'd have to be "avoid shounen-targeted shows".

>>144108561
And they said that /v/ was a myth...
>>
>>144108476
People who are obsessed with (not just watch, but watch exclusively) just tend to be the most shutin, quick to anger kind of people in my experience.
>>
>>144108598

/v/ likes shitty "manly" shows about guys beating each other up.
>>
Its best in mecha IMO
I severely dislike fantasy anime, with a few exceptions like overlord. It's really the only medium that can give mecha justice. I for one also love sports anime but that's just me
>>
There's nothing that anime does well, aside from churning out cute girls to fawn over. So, therefore it goes without saying that the only genre worth a damn is CGDCT and SoL.
>>
What is that gif OP? Looks like Shaft animated Non non biyori.
>>
>>144108664
>I severely dislike fantasy anime
That's because most fantasy anime is terrible. But anime like Mushishi or Haibane Renmei are still fantasy.
>>
>>144108661
then who is it? /g/?

>>144108664
No, sports anime are strangely good. And I don't even like sports.
>>
>>144108733
This is /a/, why can't he be /a/
>>
>>144108723
I'm talking sword and shield fantasy. Most are terrible and boring. They incorporate too much dialogue and it puts me to sleep
>>
>>144108733
I don't like them either but watching shows like haikyuu makes me want to play volleyball.
>>
>>144108754
Not necessarily /a/ imo. Just a general nostalgiafag. Sci-fi has not aged very well, even modern stuff always turn out kinda shit.

One could argue that as anime goes, SoL is the only genre that typically makes an effort towards meeting literary standards due to it needing people to relate to it and learn from it for appeal.
>>
>>144108281
i think SOL is pretty good. but i also think the reason it is so popular right now is because everyone is burned out on the more popular genres. You can only watch so much mechs, explosions, and sword fights before you get sick of it.

So SOL is like something simple and enjoyable to watch. I think its a great genre, its somewhere around number 2 on my list, but the problem for me is i just started watching SOL with Flying Witch so maybe the hype hasn't worn off yet.
>>
>>144108281

I've always liked volleyball and after watching haikyuu it just made me sad my high school didn't have a boys volleyball team, cause I would've played the shit out of that.
>>
What I could never understand is why ADHD kiddies get 'bored' when the pacing of their anime isn't going at breakneck speed.

I would much rather have an anime that spends the first two, or so episodes settling you into the characters before doing anything on a grander scale. That spent time and care on the small details.

Anime that do too much in a short a time just leave me feeling disoriented and frustrated.
>>

Well you just said the reason

They're ADHD kiddies

No, but its the only genre that anime actually excels at.

anime is a subjective form of art

yes

Wide-faced Biyoris look unsettling.
>>
>>144109854

No it hasn't. You don't find anything resembling modern 'SOL', until the late 90s at best. There were a lot of shows that dealt with mundane topics, but they were romance, magical girl, or dramas, not animated heroin for depressed shutins.


Basically >>144108352 is the only one who gets it.
>>
>>144108281
no super robot is almost as good

>>144110950
You are mixing SOL and CGDCT.

I haven't found a slice-of-life I didn't at least somewhat enjoy, but I can't watch it all the time or else I get sick of it.

Disney series are stupid romance with bad comedy and ridiculous 'im an ordinary kid, except for THAT' bullshit.

>>144111480

There is a lot of overlap between them, but that's not true. CGDCT has been around forever (Gall Force, BGC, etc), it's just what people considered cute went from space murder and piloting mecha to more benign things.

Modern SoL is still an absolute anomaly.
>>
>>144108281
I don't like SOL shows. They're too dangerous. That mellow feeling I get in my insides when I watch SOL, I don't want that. It will just seclude me further from the real world.
Fuck SOL.
>>
>>144108281
Angry teenagers get extremely angry when you praise slow-paced shows close to them, so making threads like this during a season full of people like that seems like a bad idea.

I'd say it's the only genre that's hard to fuck up. You really have to be completely retarded or go out of your way to fuck this shit up.
>>
>>144113691
It's really easy to fuck up though, in only one episode or chapter, you know if a SOL will be completely mundane or really good.

But yeah, right now it's probably the best genre, it's not really surprising since like >>144110950
those type of SOL aren't around since a long time but there were already SOLish shows in the 60s - 70s and they were already watchable, I guess the nips are just this good at making SOL and it won't change.
>>
Moe anime is for pedophiles.
>>
>>144108676
this. any other genre has been done better/perfected by other mediums for decades sometimes centuries but anime is the GOAT at these genres. if you don't believe this to be true then you are likely delusional about how good your favorite shows really are

This. Fucking re:Zero is being spammed all over the place and heralded as AOTY and it's just more "boy gets transported to fantasy world to fight and fawn over this entire harem of girls that flock him and keep getting into awkward bonerbait situations" schlock. It's the most dumbed down form of self-insert escapism.

Dramatic stories, well built worlds, interesting action, and thought provoking subjects are all better handled in different mediums. Cute idealizations of girls is really all anime has. It makes sense CGDCT SOL anime, pure distilled cute girl is the best genre.

It's easy to do but it isn't easy to make a top tier one like NNB.

I wish we had at least one comfy SoL every season.

Bad rigging of a model in that one facecam animation program where anons pretend to be the little girl.

No, just it's not a harem if only 1 girl likes him and she dies soon anyway and there aren't bonerbait situations.
>>
>>144108281
It all depends on execution.

>>144117383

Do you have the one where anon masturbates?
>>
>>144108281
I like shows like Haibane Renmei and Aria far more than NNB or Yuru Yuri

For me, the world building does it for me. Seeing other people tackle the mundane in their weird, different world makes the setting come alive. Also I'd much rather see at least something resembling characters than just blatant archetypes of characters. Comedy should exist, but it's best if it strengthen the characters and the world.

Anime should play into it's strengths, by offering us a world where it's only limit is the imagination of the studio. When I think about it, actually, most of my favorite shows aren't about a boy/girl in a Japanese school.

So basically, I like slice of a life rather than slice of life.

I'm a picky eater

Yes, the only reason why adults should watch anime unless you're some kind of manchild who still watches anime for the plot or het romance.

Of course

No, but it's the most consistently good unless you are a /v/ermin

This is the average SoL faggot

How does that make you feel?

Why is it always SoL and yurishitters who are such filthy plebians who only watch one genre of anime and claim that it is the best?

You don't see any other group of people do it. It is always SoL and Yurifags who are shitposting this hard.

>Why is it always SoL and yurishitters who are such filthy plebians who only watch one genre of anime and claim that it is the best?
I watch plenty of genres, but I still find SoL and comedy anime to be the most entertaining.
