I can't. I actually can't. It's the best.

The characters mesh together better than any other group, they actually grow over the course of the show in meaningful and subtle ways. It's got the perfect balance of comedy and seriousness, and really poignant emotional moments. I like it a lot. People say it's mundane but I find it calming, it's therapeutic in its mundanity.
>>
Not that they're better, but Takahata WMT or Doremi are as good, I think. Depending on how broadly you define slice of life I'm sure there's more you could add.

I hated every character in this show except for Renge and the girl who owned the candy store

they were so grating. if I had to describe this show I'd say "forced sentimentality". like, I knew what I was SUPPOSED to be feeling, but I wasn't feeling it.

the Renge-focused episodes were the best ones.

>>149215650
The only argument against it being a better anime than K-On, is to argue it doesn't count as an anime at all. That's the only way it stands a chance. It's time-tested classic vs late night anime for otaku basement-dwellers.
>>
all SoL animones are shit though
>>
>>149218325
Only the film but that was because it had 4DX showings which are much more expensive. Number of tickets sold was actually lower I believe, or around the same.

>>149214671
Super Sonico The Animation. It was comfier and had more music. K-on used Fuwa Fuwa Time several times, if I remember correctly.

Interesting, I didn't know that.

That's like saying "Beach Boys used Good Vibrations several times". It's their signature song.

I don't think a bunch of highschool girls would have a large catalog of music.

>>149218336

K-On aired on a primetime slot and its viewership was almost 40% female. But facts don't matter, do they? Take your nostalgia goggles off.

>>149218629
citations don't matter either, huh?

>>149218601
They actually do, which is the funny thing. Lots of cool stuff on the albums that don't appear in the show.

>>149218629
K-On didn't air on prime time. It re-aired on non-otaku slots after it was already popular.

Which proves it has power beyond its core otaku demographic--otherwise Disney wouldn't have picked it up and it wouldn't have so many female fans (while most CGDCT shows are about 99% male fanbases). KyoAni simultaneously appeals to the otaku core and a mainstream audience--one more reason why they're the best in the business and far better than the anime version of what my mom washed when she was 10.

>>149218950

Yeah, I know it's originally a western novel--perfect symbolism for the fact that it was an imitation of Western animation at a time when anime was just starting to develop its own identity. Were it not for the European dubs it would have been forgotten in the same way that Chinese imitation "anime" is a non-starter.

>The only argument against it being a better anime than K-On, is to argue it doesn't count as an anime at all.

and round and round we go. I'm not even saying it's a masterpiece, it's just you set the bar pretty low with K-On, not hard to beat that. It has the great writing and characters from the book but absolutely nothing else. K-On has the good visual direction of KyoAni but is below average in characters and writing. (Well for anime standards it's probably above average since anime characters are usually shitty dere characters)

Azumanga is an okay comedy but not much of a SOL

the manga is better anyways
>>
>>149219264

>it's a crossboarder
>>
>>149219326
azumanga has been very much genre-defining for SoL. Keion very much worked within its formula.

It was a good rendition, but let's not pretend it was less derivative than it was. Nor should we ignore the way Azumanga set the mold.
>>
>>149219494
there's a difference between genre-defining like
>"it set the foundation for the genre and invented common tropes etc"
and genre-defining like
>"it is the peak of the genre, it does everything perfectly and is the logical conclusion"

azumanga is the former, i'd consider k-on the latter

Don't mind the weebs OP

this place is plebbit 2.0 nowadays, All about that hivemind, hugbox/safespace, and no productive discussions whatsoever, put some pleb/poser/hipster taste and you have your daily intake of cancer and autism

>Non Non, Lucky Star, or any overrated moeshit best than K-On

K-On is THE moeshit, Non Non Biyori is just painfully slow, but when you call it out for it you get the salty /a/utists rage:

> You just need to '' turn you brain off '' and enjoy the most confy anime of all time

Ahhh no, if we could turn off our brain we would not even watch anime, we would watch paint get dry, Non Non is just shit, Renge is the only good thing to come out that show, but I still don't even recommend anyone to see it because it painfully tries to hard to be confy and all moe when it simply isn't it

Also Renge is overrated shit since the weebs/normies took over, not only her herself but her ''nyampasu'' is the ultimate normie/weeb salute to spread cancer everywhere around the internet

>TL;DR
Tasteless weebs trying to prove they have taste will hate K-ON because /a/ told them so, while saying Non Non Biyori is even close to being something decent

Takahata is better. Doremi is too at its best but it has like 200 episodes so it suffers from mediocrity at times.

Meanwhile I think people overrate Iyashikei like Aria and NNB quite a bit simply because of muzak, low energy and long average shot length.

> YOU CAN'T PROVE NOTHING, THEREFORE I KNOW I KNOW NOTHING, THEREFORE NOTHING IS REALLY IMPORTANT, THEREFOR THIS CONVERSATION IS POINTLESS THEREFORE.......


No, anime is crap nowadays because of the industry milking it of the tasteless turds like you, but if you act like idolcrap, generic moeshit, Fairy Cancer are on the same level as K-ON, Eva, Non Non Biyori or even Naruto you are a stupid african american and should really learn how to discuss instead of taking everything to a personal side

Thats why the anime industry is shit nowadays, your average viewer can't enjoy criticism or respect people who try to defend the integrity of the culture

I haven't watched very many, but among them it is the one I've enjoyed the most. It's got a neat mixture of functional storytelling and really strong, dynamic characters that interact very well.

NNB shares some of that but the characters are a lot weaker and completely static. Sora no Woto also has less defined characters, on top of a story that takes a lot of suspension of disbelief to be accepted, even if you take it just as the device it is.

Euphonium and ReLIFE should be worth mentioning, but they're not really SoL.
