Which of these underrated masterpieces was AOTY 2016?
Wouldnt call Occultic;Nine a masterpiece but I certainly had a blast watching it.
Only top, the rest aren't even underrated
The only true underrated masterpiece is Bananya
Bananya was ahead of it's time, it's understandable that not everyone could appreciate the artistic merit behind it.
Alright alright, semi-serious answer:
Phantom World was beautifully animated nonsense carried by one of the year's dullest main cast. (Mai was alright I guess)
Kiznaiver was boring as fuck Okada tripe with some of the most inane and uninteresting treatment of human connections I've ever seen in anime. (episodes 6 & 7 were good though)
Kabaneri was serviceable action schlock until Worst Boi Biba ruined it.
Berserk (2016) was an insult to the manga.
Haven't watched O;9 so I can't say anything about that.
The rest was good (Mob was great
imo), but they're not underrated by any means.
On one hand, they don't deserve anything for their trashy edgelord manga.
On the other, they deserve the worst possible adaptation for it as a big fuck you to how cancerous they are, and seeing some of them still try and eat that shit up and defend it is quite hilarious.
>tfw really liked Flipflappers but can't talk with like minded people that aren't /u/fags (aka not retarded)
Where Madoka threads that bad too?
Flip Flappers for me, plenty of other good stuff there though.
I really dont understand why people hate Phantom World so much. Yeah, it isn't Kyoani's best work but it was still a lot of fun and the Mom Mai episode was really great. I like that the show at least attempted to have episodes be based around entry level philosophy and I thought the characters were pretty fun.
I can understand why people would be indifferent about it but the sheer amount of hate it gets feels unwarranted.
It was already decided though.
I enjoyed most of the episodes but I would never call it good.
>Kill la Kill
How far does /u/ delusion go?
>Kabaneri got a fucking S2.
Underrated short about banana cats and their trials and tribulations when trying to survive in a human-eat-banana world where their kind is actively hunted down.
Kabaneri wasn't THAT bad as people made it out to be. I mean, it was pretty crappy, but anyone who thinks that it was good up until Biba came along is retarded. It was always mediocre. Fun but mediocre. Just like SnK, which it was ripping off.
It was Hibike, officially and objectively.
Best TV anime of the decade has already been decided.
kiznaiver was good, not the best of the best but still good
Mob on the other end was pretty boring, they would have done a better job if they animated the second arc directly (the girl possessed by an exorcist arc)
>Just like SnK, which it was ripping off.
I understand where the meme comes from but Kabaneri was basically doing its own thing by episode 3 onwards and had very different issues from SnK (which, unlike Kabaneri, was actually worth a damn despite his over-the-topness and pacing issues, if only for the story and the titan action).
>pretentious list of hipster anime except Nichijou and Hyouka
>having any good visual direction aside from the fight scenes
>He actually believes Ping Pong wasn't well-directed
Literally snk ripoff but with all the worst most generic shounen tropes ever.
Why's Armin kissing an old man.
Bullshit, it's like you weren't even paying attention to the threads during their airing.
That's fanart of a scene in the manga. Armin's ~17 and that's his bodyguard he's kissing, a sixty something year old Kenny Ackerman, uncle of Levi. See, Armin is a titan shifter just like Eren and Annie are, and Hanji wanted to see if titan shifters could get drunk. They can. Armin's a slutty, slutty drunk.
Holy shit, time to pick snk back up.
You asked, mate.
Don't worry, Kenny's not a pedo.
He just laughs and drags Armin over to Levi. Then Armin barfs on Levi's shirt. Pic related is Levi's fw
It's like if shitposting was a manga. Breddy gud. Does have some really sad/gross/unnerving moments though.
>people recognized it was good when it was aired
Quite a few people dropped it before the teru fight, even though that was most likely the peak of the show. Perhaps you mean the animation and ED that was considered great?
>inb4 reiganfags and his shitty ideals
In a way, Levi brought it upon himself so no.
Armin is also Levi's only not-bratty child (as in, his favorite) so he didn't seem to get mad. We only got like 3 pages of Armin and Eren's drunken shenanigans.
If anything, Phantom World is the most overrated piece of garbage.
Only ok for the action, story was just an even more retarded SNK ripoff
Great direction, shit plot and characters
Underrated by whom?
I liked it, but it was basically an ad for a visual novel that hasn't even come out
I'm glad Flip Flappers is getting treated like a seasonal meme show. What a bait and switch waste of time.
Can we talk about overrated series? everyone was hyping this shit just because of muh almost gay characters
This shit was by far the most overrated Anime of the year. Even before the terrible ending it was incredibly stupid.
Madoka threads happened during the great tripfag era, so they sucked. Then the yurifags took over. All the yurifag cancer you see on /a/ likely originated there, and Madoka threads are the worst threads on the board.
FlipFlap, Izetta and tumblr on ice were nothing more than bait for their respective deluded gay audience. Only hibikek thoroughly delivered and BTFO the /u/shitters to hell and back
>Aku no Hana
Ok. Never mind.
Tatami Galaxy - Aku no Hana - K-on!
Nichijou - [Peguindrum] - Hyouka
[Kyusou Giga] - Ping Pong - Uchouten Kazoku
Space Dandy - [?] - Mob Psycho 100
They're all the same
>if OP asks a question about the show, the first 30-50 posts are discussion if you're lucky
>then the tripfags start blogging or waifufagging
>then the /u/fags start circlejerking
>that one paranoid /u/fag shows up and starts lecturing people on how it's immoral to ship the ships he doesn't like
>one guy asks a question and is totally ignored
>this continues on until it falls off the board
Ok but don't blame yurifags for the tripshits
That's exactly the problem. They've had nothing worth talking about in a long while. That's why soon after the show ended, yurifags and waifufags latched on.
And it pisses me off to no end.

What is the best anime of 1999?
I'd go with pic related
I enjoyed a couple of things last year, but other than Konosuba and Mob Psycho nothing else seemed to be good, oh and Luluco but it was a short.
I sure enjoyed Hibike (but it fell short imo), Drifters and even Love Live Sunshine (which wasn't good, but it is a guilty pleasure). Then there were the meme shows like Mayoiga and Kiznaiver which were only fun to meme on. Izetta was super boring too.
That's pretty good OP. I burst out laughing when I saw Berserk there.
>implying it isn't KyoAni's worst show since Chuu2 Ren
>no Thunderbolt Fantasy
Confirmed shit list. A Taiwanese puppet-show was the AOTY and no one can convince me otherwise!
>It's shit because not forcing characters to stay on model meant that the animation could be more than highly detailed stills with mouth flaps and everyone knows linecount matters more than actual frames of animation!
I nominate pic related
no honestly i think re;zero is underrated ! /a/ started hating it when it got popular but it was pretty decent show
>all that shit that will be forgotten within a year
yep, masterpieces all right
This anon is correct.
>No Ping-pong Girl
I hate you all
This anime made me fantasize about embracing these sweaty and hot girls after their matches, taking in their natural smell while they get all bashful about how they need to shower first.
And I'd be like " no perfume in the world smells better than the natural scent of my lo-li-ta".
>Which of these underrated masterpieces was AOTY 2016?
You forgot nanbaka
This hasn't been my favorite year for anime. I enjoyed a few show's I enjoyed though. I'd probably give it to Mob Psycho. 91 Days while not anything special was at least a good gangster story to pass the time with.
