Now that the dust has settled, thoughts?
A wild ride plus everything had disapointing endings.
Maybe this year will be fun?

>memeing a copypasta into reality
You're all madmen.
I look forward to more Keit-ai shitposts in 2017.
Especially when this wins an Oscar.
Pretty shit year tbhf
Not bad honestly, this year had some good shows. Sweetness and Lightning, Hibike Euphonium 2, Monster Musume OVA, Schwarzesmarken. I don't know about anyone els but this wasn't a bad year, i'm looking forward to what's in store for us this year.
Oh boy where do we start? We had Brexit, Trump, refugees, terror attacks, further fuck ups in the Middle East etc. 2016 was very interesting year but I have a feeling we're only getting started.
>2016 was very interesting year but I have a feeling we're only getting started.
This. 2016 was just a taste.
It's like 1929 all over again. Big event happens (Trump election), things settle for a while (bear market rally), but then things get much worse when people start to grasp reality.
I don't care who's president, but I do know this economy is heading for deep shit real soon thanks to interest rate manipulation and global tensions rising. It won't be pretty.
I didn't post very much but I had a lot of fun. Hopefully I'll be able to post for another year.
Love you guys even though most of the time you are a bunch of fags.
Bad picture actually. No wonder i didn't notice it.
Re:zero grabbing all attention with big text and dangan picture itself looks like disruptive camouflage because of ant size.
This anime fucking sucked hopefully the next season is better, I heard war happens.
>mfw Hetalia was right all along
Better than 2015 but worse than 2014. A lot of decent shows but not really anything too amazing besides from Rakugo. This year had a lot more memorable announcements than it did Anime like FLCL 2 and the new Code Geass although they'll probably end up being shit anyway.
This one is shit. There's so many pointless ass images from Anime no ones going to remember a week from now.
I was about to say something, but then I realized you're one of the hipsters so desperate to pretend to have refined taste that you think Rakugo was anything other than melodramatic josei.
Oh boy, I hit the nail on the head, didn't I?
Why do people who don't actually watch anime keep pretending they're qualified to say stupid shit like "Only a couple good shows came out this year"?
Rakugo is a show about a death of an artform where worldbuilding is done by examining lifestyle changes of regular men throughout the century.
Of course plebs like you completely misunderstood it. It's quite literally too deep for you.
It was mediocre on a whole, but with a few gems like Luluco and Flip Flappers that really brightened the year.
>Someone accurately described what the series was and disagreed with me
>Everyone who disagrees with me is one person
This might actually be one of the stupidest things to say on /a/. Thanks for reminding us how stupid Rakugofags are.
Of all the posts you linked in that archive search, 2 were mine, and that includes the one from this thread. It's josei, and it's melodramatic. Not everyone who points that out is one person. Stop being an idiot.
>if you find any amount of emotions melodramatic
And you may be a raging faggot if you're pretending that run of the mill josei relationship drama and homolust undertones aren't melodramatic. But they, throw in a historical setting and make it about any kind of dated artform, and suddenly hipsters will pretend it's great by virtue of being different alone.
Kimi no Na Wa is itt overrated shit in spades. Shinkai literally copypasted 5CMPS and put a thin coat of paint over it. For the same exact story as all his other shit it didn't need to be as long as it was. The fact that every website known to man including /a/ is praising it as the best thing ever, as in better than FMAB, is ridiculous and bullshit. KnN > 5CMPS > Kimi for pacing alone
Actually josei isn't a buzzword at all. It's objectively josei, and that's not up for debate. You could argue that melodrama is a buzzword, but it's really not. So that's one word you found that people use, and that's because it applies. If you look through those posts, one guy calls it a period drama a few times, one calls it generic and most of the rest aren't even about Rakugo, because those two words are completely normal for talking about a josei series. You really have no grasp of how anime discussion goes, because you likely don't watch all that much anime given how good you're pretending Rakugo is (because in you're mind it's different and not "otaku anime" and therefore good) and on top of that, your inability to differentiate different posters based on prose and vernacular highlights how stupid you actually are.
Keep at it, though.
You don't know what that word means.
>Your opinion is self contradictory
No it's not. I said that people like the show for it's setting despite its using cliched archetypes and ideas seen in josei manga because it manages to fool them into thinking it's truly novel and nuanced. Nothing in my posts are self contradictory. Stop using words you don't understand to try to sound smart, you just come off stupider for using them incorrectly.
What a compelling and well thought out argument that addresses what I said, and isn't just cognitive dissonance to reconcile the fact that more than one person disagrees with you for the same reasons.
I guess you could only pretend to be smart for so long.
>Only one person thought that Rakugo was just josei melodrama
>See? Look at these posts that are mostly not even about Rakugo
Oh no, this anon's retarded as well.
You guys already know he's been at it for ages, so why even bother continuing to argue with him? You know he's not going to change his opinion. It's the same deal with all the other autists like the homuhater or IBO hater, they can be reasoned with.
Oh that was a serious question. You brought up the IBO guy. He spams images in every IBO thread and makes dozens of posts per week. The guy in this thread linked a couple of posts that called it a melodramatic josei and then a bunch of posts that had nothing to do with Rakugo, and then claimed that only one guy didn't like it. My question stands, why are you all so fucking stupid?
You quoted a reddit meme directly. Please explain how me pointing that out was ironic.
>it's pretty obvious you don't even lurk the threads much
But anon, I'm the one guy that doesn't like Rakugo and I shitpost all the threads about it the same way. How can I be that guy but also not lurk the threads? Please explain it to me.
