Niconico's AOTY result:
4. Yuri on Ice
8. Hibike 2
9. New game!
How did Flip Flappers do?
My favorite of the top 10 list is Hibike; haven't watched Jojo/YoI/GATE/fujomatsu/the latest Gundam, and of the others I thought Re:Zero was mediocre, KonoSuba/New Game! were pretty decent, and Hibike is good other than lagging in the first arc.
1. "Re:Zero -Starting Life in Another World-" (8.3%)
2. "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable" (7.8%)
3. "KONOSUBA -God's blessing on this wonderful world!" (6.7%)
4. "Mobile Suit GUNDAM Iron Blooded Orphans" (4.5%)
5. "GATE" (3.6%)
1. "Yuri!!! On ICE" (14.5%)
2. "Osomatsu-san" (7.2%)
3. "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable" (5.9%)
4. "Touken Ranbu - Hanamaru" (5.64%)
5. "Mob Psycho 100" (4.1%)
You'd be surprised at how many Fujos are into Re:Zero. Julius and Reinhard are seen shipped with Subaru a lot in fanart and such.
Julius is justified since a side story implies he has feelings for Reinhard, so he is most likely gay.
Thing is fujo pandering is a lot more centralized, so you have 15 shows targeting X demographic and then you have 2 targetting Y demographic, it should be obvious Y shows will be much more succefull than any produed in the X demographic.
Of course, this will die down in a few years as more and more companies try to pander to fujos.
>They have even less standard compare to male otaku and are more willing to spend on trash.
That doesn't make much sense considering that 3 things on the female list are more well made and ambitious than anything on the male list. Yuri on Ice is one of the best sports shows in a long time, Re Zero is an edgy rehash of a generic story people have been complaining about for years.
The part about no standards doesn't make much sense since shows fujos and other women flock are on average much better than the otaku pandering stuff men latch onto. Just look at the damn list.
>harems/cute girls popular among man
>BL popular among woman
>no one cares about sakuga, art, story except rare exceptions and popular franchises with already strong audience
>normal peopel don't cares about anime except big names or trend things
>BD sales still main outcome
>BL grow stronger
Nothing changed. BL will rule industry.
I mean Konosuba was good but I don't think it was that enjoyable, Above Osomatsu Drifters and Hibike?
Rakugo was just good enough to make people feel superior by claiming it was the best thing airing and just bad enough to be completely forgotten after the season ended.
Maybe the second season will change things.
More like anyone with good taste knows it's AOTY but most people are plebs who only watch mainstream popular things like Yaoi on Ice and the seasonal Isekaishit. No one who actually watched forgot about it.
It's a popularity contest anon, where do you think Rakugo will be?
>bad enough to be completely forgotten after the season ended.
Fuck no, most people that watched it still think it's the best thing to come out this year. The problem is not a lot of people watched it in the first place. It is a niche show, it can't compete with popular shows.
>We need isekai fujobait.
Already done 12 years ago.
Made a lot of money on official Chinese streams though. Assclass popularity on there was at the level where they can completely breakeven all their production costs just from streaming. Rezero being their top fav is 3 times that amount
>Yuri on ice is legit good
Wew lad. What was so good about generic sports story with crappy animation, clichéd one note characters, tropey story. immersion breaking info dump, forced drama and lots of pacing issues, do tell us.
Only reason people with little bit of taste cared for Yoi is because character interactions were gold and shipping.
It's sakuga anime with strange target audience. Basically all-girls cast with /u/ trash. Even if you interested in animation it's pretty painful and boring to watch unless you fan of those types of shows.
It was a fun show with lovable characters, that's why people liked it. Also
>generic sports story
Yeah, because a story about adult professional level sports is so common in anime, right? You're so full of shit.
This list is rigged. How can a gay show like JoJo be number 1?
Yuri on Ice deserves number 1.
inb4 Yuri on Ice is gay. It's not. JoJo is the kind of annoying gay while Yuri on Ice is subtle and good.
>Not a single mention of Flip Flappers
Nips legendary shit taste confirmed yet again.
The level of the sport didn't really change anything. Yuri is down on his luck when suddenly the X factor, Victor shows up to lead him to victory. Seiran are down on their luck when suddenly the X factor, Kuroko and Kagami show up to lead them to victory. Karasuno are down on their luck when suddenly the X factor, Hinata and Kageyama show up to lead them to victory. YoI didn't deal with anything exclusive to professional level sports, the only thing "different" about it is the premise.
I hated this. I hated this so much. Main characters were engaged and this show was still straight as fuck. This is the show that taught me what true bait was.
Last I checked my AOTY wasn't in number 2
I pretty much know what happens in the novel since you fags keep shoving your shit threads in my mouth for months no matter how filter the shit out of it.
Feel free to offer a counter argument. And no, saying "I'm going to retire" without actually going into any detail whatsoever about the emotion and wavering behind that decision is not "dealing with" it.
It's nothing like those shows in that those shows don't have the writers blatantly writing in goofy homoerotic jokes like marriage proposals to boost sales, no. But it's everything like those shows in its approach to the actual sport.
I must have missed Hinata's monologues about his sexual awakening. I haven't watched Haikyuu in ages. In all seriousness, even the format of ice skating makes it different (and much less antagonistic) than shounen sports.
Yuri on Ice's approach to the sport is far different. For one, it's not even a team sport. It's also far more focused on individual skaters than any competition between them. You're really reaching.
He's right. The Yuri was pretty subtle.
>and much less antagonistic
Yurio is as much an antagonist as most other shounen sport antagonists. Rarely you get shounen sport antagonists that are stupidly evil for no reason (these are complete trash), but most are "bad guys that are friendly when they acknowledge your strength" like Yurio is.
I never opened Re:zero threads since september and don't even know anything about translation and shit. Without any filters. So
>no matter how filter the shit out of it.
It's pure bullshit or you don't know how to use word filters.
This is fucking depressing the more I look at it and think about it. EVERY anime on the female side is literally because it has gay pairings they can ship.
The male side is a tad more varied yet it has absolute shit like GATE and IBO. Re:Zero is painfully mediocre as well.
Whatever. Japs have shit taste. I learned this fast and it's a fact that persists to this day.
>tfw Jojo won
Nipland confirmed for non /a/utistic taste
Fag Flappers BTFO again
>Yurio as an antagonist
I would think that JJ was more of an "antagonist" than Yurio. Even then, all the skaters we're pretty much on the same level. The true antagonist of the story was
Yuri's stupidity and anxiety.
>animeonly's opinion not taken
>literally an animeonly himself
Fucking Re:tards amiright
>It's pure bullshit or you don't know how to use word filters.
That's because the faggot poster uses every words he can think of the differentiate it from his previous threads. I know it's just one poster but god damn he's persistent as fuck.
Why do women like homoshit instead of reverse harems?
Doesn't it make more sense to self-insert as a girl who is loved and courted by all the handsome guys, instead of watch two handsome guys have sex?
He's the dance battle rival
that's because women carer les about themselves and more about what people think.
being a fujo is percieved as '"cool' and thus, they insists on becoming one
sSuch is the logic behind mob mentality and why stupid movements like feminism and blm exists in the first place
they think that they are fujos but in reality, reverse harems like vampire knight and twilight are the epitome of female charts
>tfw one of the top-rated shows was by a female writer/director powerhouse duo
Can't wait for the numbers to come in and these people drown themselves in a shallow pool of their own tears
There are a shit ton of shows with male idols in a reverse harem. UtaPri is what you are thinking of. We'll see who wins the season- UtaPri or Yuri on Ice. A battle between fujos and otome.
Otome is pretty popular already, and some like both. Fujos, or at least when I was younger and among my peers and online, we hated other female characters because they got in the way. We couldn't self insert as the girl because they were boring, too innocent, shy etc. We liked looking at men more than other girls. We were used to girls. Men were a mystery and we enjoyed looking into their world and their bodies.
Older now, I've grown out of hating female characters, and even like some harem shit along side BL. But I still can't stand otome. The the female MCS are insufferable, boring and I want to punch them.
Homo is infinitely better because males are just better characterizated in general, and the dynamics between men are more interesting than the dynamics between women and men. You can't fathom it because those dynamics skew to male taste, but that's exactly what many women want to avoid. Even if a series is aimed at women, the female character has to appeal to men because the audience is all too conscious of what they like and they won't self insert if they think boys won't be into it.
Something like YOI could not work with a female MC. Victor is a 27 yr old flirt who turns up naked everywhere, Yuuri is a 23 yr old who drunkenly strips and pole dances. Their dynamic switches constantly between who is more feminine/masculine and submissive/dominant, and there's a sexual overtone to it. They're too old, too impure and too difficult to fit into the neat little gender role boxes that come with straight relationships.
>Victor is a 27 yr old flirt who turns up naked everywhere, Yuuri is a 23 yr old who drunkenly strips and pole dances
Wait, the fujos accept this 4 year old gap? it's pretty big by anime standards.
What? 4 years is nothing between people in their mid 20s. They're at somewhat similar stages of their lives, the only power imbalance between them comes from their figure skating careers and that's too specific to really be an issue of age.
It's really difficult for a reverse harem to be good anyway, that's why I prefer fujobait. Pic related is an exception.
So is this one of those threads where /a/ pretends to be jaded about everything and only complains about what the majority enjoys?
>haha we are hipsters look how much we hate these shows most of /a/ liked
So what did you fags actually enjoy then?
That's your opinion
>sell your panties to some fag
>use money to buy goods
>use parent's money to buy stuff
>parent's money isn't enough to buy as many goods
Female animu neet scum have more options to make money on the side than male animu neet scum
>two girls being sexy with each other
>two guys being sexy with each other
It is the reaction of people who just want to watch the opposite gender but don't want to self-insert
It's more that they have less to watch overall and thus their buying power accumulates more towards singular shows, while male viewers have a lot more choice and thus their purchases are spread out over a greater variety of shows.
They like both. However, in comparison with BL otomeshit is more niche. It does exist though. Arguably shoujo/jousei garbage also delivers relationshit soap opera drivel which women like.
I'd replace GATE With Bakuon, which was my personal surprise of 2016.
This actually makes sense, but it probably won't be the case for too much longer. More and more shows will start to be made for women, which will make their market more diffuse and level the playing field.

Gotta love the mentality of people in this thread.
>I don't like this anime! If you do you've got shit taste!!
>How is this anime popular when I don't even like it!
In the end it all comes down to preference and opinion but people rather attack each other than accepting others opinions.
I'm not sure what point you're trying to make here.
I like both JJBA and Re:Zero but it's no surprise that something that old and liked beat an anime of a LN that started being published only 2 years ago.
I'm just trying to understand your reasoning, a show that's been going for decades or a show that just aired, of course it's going to be more popular. However the fact it came second against it for airing this year and you say it got "BTFO" makes no sense.
You don't remember shit like this?
real 2016 aoty list (no order):
Jojo Part 4
Space Patrol Luluco
Mob Psycho 100
Shokugeki no Souma
Time Travel Shoujo
The Wizard's Bride
Kamisama Hajimemashita OVA
Nobunaga no Shinobi
Dragon Ball Super
guilty shonenshit pleasure, you know you like it too, fag
Will never forget the entirety of /a/ being flooded with threads after episode 18 aired.
Huh. Didn't realize it was that popular.
It has negative effects also like his mental health probably isn't the best because of it and that he still has to face the problems and even if he does fix some he can't save everyone eg; Rem using it.
The tears of jojofags was the best part about that get.
Mistafags will return for 244444444.
>no one outside /a/ even knows girlish number even exists
It's impressive to have taste even shittier than /a/, but I guess Niconico are mostly casuals anyways.
Will wait for 2ch's list, although I'm not sure I'd expect much better.
I was being a cheeky cunt in >>151494037, I'll answer seriously now.
2ch is the textboard, started in like 1999, is three times bigger than 4chan, even after Hiroyuki was caught datamining the users and many left it's still the go-to place in the Japanese Internet. Its name is pronounced 2chan (nichan).
Futaba is the imageboard. 2chan.net is only the URL, nobody except foreigners new to Internet culture call it "2chan" and japs always make fun of 4channers for doing that. It's smaller than 4chan since 2006 and was made when 2ch was in danger of closing.
literally autism - the anime
at least all the series that Tomino was involved with
the few ones that he didn't touch managed to turn out somewhat sensible, but either way, Gundam is bottom of the barrel mecha franchise
>Retards in this thread are genuinely surprised that part 4 of JoJos is #1
If you guys actually tried to read the fucking manga and not get you impression form the jojogeneral maybe you would be a little less buttblasted
JoJo is only generic in Parts 1 and 2, and that's because of Hamon, which is just another martial art power like every other shounen at the time.
Part 3 onwards have Stands, which are one of, if not the most unique ability in shounen.
>implying jojo isn't moe and yurishit
I only watched the first half of part 3, but all i saw was :
>heroes are going to dio
>a monster/danger/enemy appears
>a battle/conflict starts
>the heroes win
>the heroes continue's the adventure
>this for the entire anime
And most of the battles/conflicts are boring and uninteresting.
Part 3 was written in the late 80s. Many of the decisions (like the monster of the week formula) were commonplace and accepted at the time.
Araki also didn't understand what he was doing with Stands until the 2nd half of Part 3. He based early Stands more off of weird movie inspirations (killer car, zombie fog thing) instead of actual powers. (Pic related for example)
>Jojo on top
Looks like the nuclear fallout is still fucking with them
THERE IS HOPE BROTHER
If you fuck too much with the source material, you often lose what makes it special in the first place.
The Part 3 OVA made in the 90s seems like what you would want. It fixes a lot of the problems with Part 3, like the monster of the week formula. However, it also loses all of the charm in the process, becoming too serious for a series that has "bizarre" in it's name.
>Implying the part with this crazy motherfucker is the worst part.
The male list is okay. Mmh, I think I know what's happening here.
Tits or kicks.
>Konosuba Top 3
Perfectly fine with this.
Surprise of the season and actually made me like Deen.
>konosuba not above re:zero
it's like you don't even like explosions
>>We need isekai fujobait.
We do. Because they aren't garbage like the otakutard ones.
Every year the same shit.
>buuhuu nips horrible taste
Anime is made in Japan, by Japanese people and (mostly) FOR Japanese people.
They surely don't give a fuck about the average western anime guy.
You don't buy merchandise, you don't buy DVDs, you leach the fucking show on streaming sites, or torrent them.
You are worth nothing to the people who make anime, they don't care about your opinion.
Jojo always beats moeshit baby. Like music to my ears.
>4. "Mobile Suit GUNDAM Iron Blooded Orphans" (4.5%)
I skipped this because I thought it was fujoshit.
But since it's rated so highly in the male section - was I wrong?
Also all that wish fulfillment is pretty pathetic.
Threadly reminder that it has been made into a wiki, a fanfic, a fictionpress story, a manga, a meme, an anime preview, an anime episode, and an honest-to-goodness anime movie that's Oscar nominated, and a critically acclaimed box office success, so stop talking about it.
>#1 in the Japanese box office for 12 weeks, 11 weekends
>Has surpassed Miyazaki's Howl's Moving Castle as #2 Anime Film of All Time in Japan
>Earns 20 billion yen and counting to surpass Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets in Japan
>Reached 10 billion yen 9 days faster than Frozen
>Now beyond 20 billion yen (US$288 million).
>Nominated for an Oscar
>Wins LA Film Critics Award
>Has become the no. 1 highest-grossing Japanese movie in China
>Has become the no. 1 movie in Thailand
>On the cusp of going beyond the box office gross of Spirited Away (US$289.1 million)
So this is meme magic. Not bad.
Elevens fall so much under the classic stereotypes that it isn't even funny anymore.
They'd view the MC as a female character who happens to be a fujoshi, like they would with anyone else in the series, and decide if she's deadweight dragging down the series or someone genuinely interesting. Self-inserting is the realm of otomeshit lovers.
It's on the women's list (which is why they have objectively better taste than their male counterparts), but the show in general didn't have that big a following. Lots of nip fans during its airing complained about how little recognition it seemed to get given its quality.
eh, I'm fine with this
>literal AOTD below some faggot jojo shit
JUST FUCK JAPAN'S TASTE UP SENPAI
It's the same as dudes who like watching lesbians instead self-inserting as a dude who fucks lots of chicks.
Also because women see other women as competition because they're all fucking insane
>3DPD chide us on liking sexist shows etc etc
>3DPD gobble up gay pretty boys sex buttfucking shows
Well you're definitely not wrong. The first half of part 3 is bloated trash. It really picks up in the 2nd half. And part 4 is pretty much great the whole way through, albeit a bit slow at the start. Things really start to pick up once Kira shows up
>all these shitty replies
Anon is right. We need more cool female MCs. Just look at Ange. Complete bitch but everyone loved her.
>Men were a mystery and we enjoyed looking into their world and their bodies.
So young girls think men just gay out for each other in the locker room and sensually put their penis up the poop shoot? Women are insane.
It's going to be the number 1 spot for both boys and girls. Watch. The battles and characters are fantastic, it's basically just a better part 3, but holy fuck does everyone look gay.
