How do I get "good taste in anime" /a/?

Watch it. Over and over again, every day. Sooner or later you will understand.
>>
>>154910337
Watching anime means you have bad taste from the get go...

Just watch what you enjoy and try to watch a variety of show, not just one show.
Also, according to /a/ you will never have good taste, because every /a/non thinks that his taste>shit>your taste.

>>154910337
You never get good taste. You just get better at not showing your bad taste.

Oh fuck I've only watched like 700. I can't post on /a/!

Just watch as much as you possibly can. Anything else is irrelevant.

shit > my taste > your taste

Read manga.
Or agree with me on everything, preferably both.

>>154910337
you start watching anime because of "cool stories and cool characters"
soon enough you realize Japan doesn't give a shit about these type shows
you swear off anime but can't find a home in any other entertainment medium
you give into the moe and become an /a/non

>>154910337
Toriko is an entire Shonen series about 'good taste'

You start by stop visiting 4chan, then you will realize that a bunch of literal 8 years old opinions doesn't matter and that it's ok to like things.

this place isnt /mu/, in fact /mu/ is pretty much the only board that unironically prides themselves in their taste in stuff

>>154910425
I don't even know how much I watched but I don't think it's anywhere near 1000

OVAs and movies don't count

>>154910337
watch only CGDCT

why not?

>>154916043
they are too short, do a separate list for ovas and movies

There are only about 300 ones actually worth watching

>>154916785
t. newfag who's seen less than 100 anime and watches less than 20 shows a year
>>
>>154910425
tBh people who just watch a fuck load of anime is just a sure sign that they have no taste.

>people who try all kinds of different foods have no idea what good food tastes like

try like 20 lmao

>People who just eat at McDonald tier restaurants and do this not just for critique but actually enjoyment have an idea for what good food tastes like
>>
>>154917527
So you're just a cynical bitch by insinuating everything made is McDonald's tier. Just because someone eats warm dog shit on the same day they eat a $300 steak doesn't mean they have shit taste. It just means they have plenty of time to waste.
>>
>>154917592
You indulge in a pleb medium with very little work of significance and much better things are being done at other places.

If you wanna continue you're shitty analogy its like giving somebody unlimited funds for food purchases but he keeps going to McDonald tier restaurants and trying out their items and now comes to be and tells me I'm a cynical bitch for not treating it with the same respect as Michelin stared ones

You get good taste when no matter what you pick you don't drop it. Not because you like eating shit but because you only watch good shows.
>>
>>154917813
You're still ignoring the point. People who experience more of a medium have a much wider range of experience and are able to better determine what is good and what is bad. You are insisting that you can only know what is good by only experiencing good. That's not how it works. Your idea of developing taste is flawed by design. You need to see all of it. You don't have to enjoy all of it, you fucking autist, but you need to at least experience it long enough to know why it is bad. Dismissing it beforehand doesn't somehow mean you have developed a refined taste; it simply means you have developed a taste and refuse to allow anything else in except the things you've pre-determined fit inside your strike zone.

That's not having good taste, my friend. That's bad taste. Putting blinders on is not something you should be bragging about.

This is one of the most boring reruns.

>waaaaah why isn't my niche medium that's predominantly used to cater to children and Japanese neck beards considered as having produced just the same amount as artistic merit as other mediums

>>154910337
There is no way to "acquire" because for better or for worse, it's a subjective thing, and in the end you decide what criteria makes a show "good" o "bad". However what you can achieve is a REFINED taste, which is gotten by watching a lot of anime from all times (from modern to 60's stuff), genres (from mecha to mahou shoujos) and sources (manga, originals, vns, etc), that will give you familiarity with all of the tropes and archetypes, common plot points and premises that anime can offer (with you in the end deciding which ae good or bad), so that next season when the next derivative isekai or whatever the fuck comes out, you are able to identify it's generic ideas for what they are, instead of singing it's praises like a fucking newfag.

Keep it coming. Next time don't forget to mention that you're a first year film student or that you've read Great Gatsby so you're a literary pro. Then talk about how Akira and Eva are the best anime ever.
