Pretty much 50 million views. Is Haruhi a Gateway anime now?
>>
I've never watched Haruhi, but I like this song.
>>
>>153119471
It's not gateway, but pretty entry-level.
>>
>>153119471
Still the best concert in anime history.
>>
>>153119942
Whats the difference?
>>
>>153119948
*Cough* K-on!
>>
You know. I always thought this was the highlight of the series. Until the movie came out.

K-on's live didn't have a tenth of the energy that the Haruhi concert had.
>>
>>153119983
Gateway is what gets new people into anime. Haruhi is too entrenched in "anime culture" to attract someone unfamiliar with anime. But anybody with a small understanding of "anime culture" would enjoy Haruhi a lot and probably want to see more of the medium.

Actual gateway anime are things like Naruto, Shingeki no Kyojin, Code Geass, etc. Typically things even normalfags consider to be "cool".

At least there's new books...

Oh wait

Well there's the new spin-off season...

Oh wait

Well the spin-off books just released a new novel...

But it's the final one

RIP this series. I don't think even a new book or season can save it. There are barely any fans left.

>>153120050
Ok wise guy. When did it happen then?
>>
>>153120132
But I like Code Geass

There are plenty of fans. Most of just in hibernation. R-right?

>>153120209
Okay. Now I know you're shitposting.
>>
>>153120205
There's nothing wrong with liking gateway anime, as long as you're not liking it "because it's popular" or nostalgia or some equally inane reason.

I'm the biggest k-tard on this big gay earth and even I think k-on had weak performances.
>>
>>153120132
haruhi was one of the first anime i saw before coming to /a/ its normalfag tier as fuck. All i wanted after i finished it was better anime. Burn.
>>
>>153120209
Steins;Gate is the new gateway. New watchers don't even know what Haruhi is.

>>153120218
Doubt it. I think everything peaked in 2014 and then fell to a point where it's unrecoverable. After Endless Eight and Pachinko only a fraction of the old fans remain.

What the actual fuck.

Nostalgia is an inane reason to like something now?

Still a normalfag you are.

Yeah, Keions best performances were in the EDs which weren't even in universe

Although Keions never wrote a song as powerful as God Knows too

The best they ever did was their Deathdevil cover in the beginning of the movie.
>>
>>153120422
yeah dude you caught me, my favorite anime is K-on and literally everything made by kyoani.
>>
>>153120384
Yeah and like 2 months ago it was #44. Shit's gonna be off the top 50 in less than a year. Ouran just dropped out about a week ago.
>>
>>153120495
>Ouran
This was considered good?
>>
>>153120132
Haruhi was my gateway anime, though. I did watch Toonami as a kid but didn't know what anime was until I was 17 when I really tried to get into it.
>>
>>153120539
Haven't heard people say they dislike it. They might not love it but they certainly liked it.
>>
>>153120539
you have to remember, oh wait you probably dont because new. the standard then was dangerously low, hence why NGE is somewhat praised.
>>
>>153119471
How come all the performances in Haruhi were so much better than the actual music anime that KyoAni have done since?
>>
>>153119716
People who didn't start indulging themselves in this awful lifestyle within the last 4-5 years.
>>
>>153120590
I watched Ouran in 08/09. I enjoyed it but no where did I consider it top tier anime.
>>

Whilst its true the standard was lower back then, NGE still holds up to this date which is why its "somewhat praised".
>>

Good for you but that doesn't change the fact that Haruhi is a gateway anime.

Well, it was one of my first anime series back in 2010, a lot of shit has happened in these last 7 years, but I still have Haruhi in my heart.
Watching Melancholy back then didn't help either
>>
>>153120827
>60 dakis
Oddly specific.
>>
>>153120877
Fuck I've only watched Haruhi once but I can easily recognize that real life location in such an iconic way for some reason.
>>
>>153120760
I first watched Haruhi in 2012 and am just now picking up the LN. So it's all still pretty fresh for me.
I wish I had gotten into anime when I was in my early teens though. Being a newcomer with no nostalgia is suffering.

MAL is a good source to know what is and isn't popular among anime fans, emphasis on anime fans, because it isn't that accurate when it comes to actual normalfags who barely watch anime since of course, they don't access MAL.

>>153121508
you literally cant discredit or refute mal.

Bullshit.

A couple of years ago threads on /a/ would never last more than a couple of days. Now threads that last a couple of days are normal.
>>
>>153121766
>A couple of years ago threads on /a/ would never last more than a couple of days.
GJ-bu fags made sure to make their threads last almost a week, almost all the small threads had days long threads nigga.
>>
>>153121766
moot said that /a/ had one million unique IPs per month and that 4chan as a whole had 20 million in his last live stream, which was the end of 2014 if I'm not mistaken?

According to to some sources and things Hiro said, 4chan only grew since then and it's even more popular now, just like anime is more popular now than it was before. So yeah, the 1 million figure isn't unrealistic at all.

You have to remember that the vast majority of those 1 million people are lurkers, just like in all sites on the internet, lurkers are always the majority.

Hard to know. Probably the people who want to keep track on their series but are too lazy to do what >>153121908 said. I sure hope that no anon is retard enough to actually engage in discussions there.
>>
I think that labeling Code geass, Naruto, DBZ, SAO and all those really popular shows as gateway would be inaccurate, since the term is more to describe an specific type of show than to just name popular stuff.

In my opinion, Gateway anime is something like Cowboy Bebop, Death Note, Berserk, Monster, Kaiji and Satoshi Kon films, which are all excelent works in my opinion, but the thing is that they are extremely easy to introduce to normalfags since they don't carry most of the tropes that the medium is known for and are also more ''grounded'' than your average anime, while also being easy to get into considering they have engaging plots and narratives.
>>
I can't get enough of the engrish
>>
>>153122236
Yes but more often than not its the "popular" shows that serve as gateways to normalfags and newfags.
