I'm getting close.
I'm only watching one thing this season and only because I watched it's OVA. I'm only vaguely aware of what else is airing and I haven't the slightest idea what's going to be airing next season.

I used to watch multiple shows every season what the fuck happened?

>>156333800
Giving up? I am having a hard time watching everything I want every season. I love how easy it is to just get some torrents and enjoy over 20 different shows every 3 months. And then it is easy to find discussion here or read the manga/LN if needed.

Compared to the 90s, where we had to trade VHS tapes and VCDs with friends to get bad rip of some mistranlated series every months, I'd say we are living in a glorious era.

The resilient hope that there will be something great among the next few shows I watch. Watching anime is essentially like gem mining. You work your way through an endless stream of dirt and (fossilized) shit, but every now and then you hit a diamond that sparkles like nothing you've ever seen before. And everytime that happens, it is the best motivator you can think of. Because had I stopped a year ago, I woul've missed this? No way I'm gonna let something like that happen.

Fate/Stay Night's anime, because NASU's insanity is literally my headspace. I've rarely if ever had such a powerful feeling that I was watching the work of someone who I understood. Someone who treasured his childhood chuuni bullshit, and realized that if there was anything legit about HEROES OF JUSTICE at all, the only way to prove it would be to make the poor bastards toboggan down a mountain of shit, broken glass and AIDS, on their face, while the author was using them as a snowboard. And if you reach the bottom and that motherfucker stands up, then shit is well and truly real. andthecrowdgoeswild.png

So maybe anime's not going to be miserable 13 (then 12, then 11, then 10) episode adaptations of unfinished mango, or even worse, one-season adaptations of *finished* mango looking to cash in on the fanbase, then never call back after the pump-and-dump. Maybe anime will still find stories worth telling, and actually tell them.

The prospect of maybe someday seeing a really good and engaging anime come out that also has the female characters regularly peeing as just like, a recurring thing, whether plot-related or pure obvious fetish fanservice (as long as they don't spend more time making a big deal out of it with every character remarking on it than they do just showing it).

I'm willing to suffer through stuff like Prison School just for that and the occasionally decent humor, but I long for anime or manga that will have it reliably every few episodes or every several chapters, and not like Queen's Blade where it's just there badly shoehorned in as "character development" to get more people to watch the anime, and then NEVER AGAIN and the anime isn't even good on top of that after you've been rused into watching a bunch of episodes hoping for more.

The worst thing is it's not even truly h-worthy in and of itself so hentai/doujins you can expect to only include it as some "final humiliation", barely depicted, in the middle of some repulsive scene you don't want to watch full of gaping prolapses and massive pimply dicks.

Because American TV, and western TV in general, is:

A) Literally the same melodrama or sitcom crap every season, with very, very few exceptions (at least anime has many varieties of genres, even if most of it is still garbage).
B) Almost no imagination for things, requires everything to be "realistic" or "historical" as possible.
C) Always, ALWAYS some massive focus on some relationship garbage just to shoehorn in drama, even in comedy shows.

I'm sure no one else is surprised.

That's what 99% of post-1980s anime IS.
>>
>>156350494
Everything you said besides B and some of D is just as present in anime.
>>
>>156350737
No it isn't. I don't know how you could possibly come to that conclusion. It's not even comparable. Most of hollywood and big western TV shows have a very obvious ideological lean. Anime does not; it's more often apolitcal than not.
>>
>>156350853
Anime is apolitical, but so fucking much of it is "degeneracy", and subverting tradition.
>>
>>156350931
>degeneracy
Some of it is in the sense of sexual fanservice and the like. But it's still pretty rare for characters to get laid outside of a proper relationship. Let alone promiscuous behavior.

>subverting tradition
Not really. Most of it enforces decades old cliches.
>>
>>156350853
And yet anime is often just as ideological; you're just biased and cannot see that.

There's also a shit load of good stuff that is apolitical in non-anime, but you just have a stick up your ass about politics.

Wow what degeneracy.

No it isn't. Explain how anime is even remotely as ideological as something like "Hidden Figures."

>There's also a shit load of good stuff that is apolitical in non-anime
Well sure. I'm talking about today's hollywood and some of the big budget tv shows.

>>156351161
Ghibli films.

Also, you should realize that ideology has a definition outside of 'political' ideology. This is more of you complaining about politics in anime, not about ideology.

How exactly is this representative of all anime? I'll admit I haven't watched every Ghibli film, but I mostly just recall harmless kid romance and some ecology/environmental messages. Not very ideological and certainly not nearly to the extent of Hidden Figures.

I manage to lurk on /a/ for years without being spoiled on Evangelion. Going in expecting good'ol Gainax super robot anime like TTGL while being a hikki during that time, EoE was a slap to the face.
Didn't get me out of the hikki phase apparently

eva isn't nihilistic, the entire message is >just luv urself lol :^)

>>156352216
I don't know, realizing anyone at all recommended that piece of shit or thought it was in any way good or that the symbolism was anything but overly obvious shoving itself in your face - that might make you think twice about anime or at least its fans. The fact that EVERYONE still dick-rides this piece of shit to the point it's just that thing you pretend to like even if you haven't seen it, and people who never even saw the first episode are STILL talking about how Asuka is SO GREAT BEST GIRL OMG...is almost enough to make you want to watch shitty sitcoms instead.

Well Eva basically is a reflection of the pathetic hikki/otaku lifestyle which encompasses mass consumption of media to escape personal problems. If anything else, it is a reminder that life will be shit but the pain will be worth if you put yourself in society and find your place.

I'm pretty sure it's actually a shitty attempt at injecting gritty realism into a subpar mech anime while choking on the dick of mystic mythos they previously injected into the setting without understanding in any way or doing their homework, plus, like, BLOBS OF FLESH MAN WOAH.

Alot of animes are guilty of hamfisting their themes. If you want subtlety go read a book.
>>
>>156353385
A lot of anime doesn't get talked about and dicksucked over and over and over despite being guilty of this. A lot of anime that DOES has actually interesting characters and something worth seeing. A mech anime that has a hamfisted them and lots of dumb shit and even sad moments and retarded waifus, and even kills off the best character before the halfway point, is Gurren Lagann. Then it spends the entire rest of the series shark-jumping over and over and over as every character devolves further into a stereotype or clone wrapping up with multiple "true endings", all of them shit. Yet it still winds up providing some actual entertainment value along the way, unlike NGE.

Your post make you sound mad over the eva fanbase rather than the actual show. Stop visiting eva threads on /a/, it's all waifu shit-flinging with little discussions. Filter what you don't like, nobody is forcing you to enjoy eva.

I'll admit that I'm cooling off a bit, partially due to less free time, but also partially because good shows I haven't seen are getting a bit harder to find, and the newer stuff is catching my interest less.

This year though there's been a bit of a resurgence, with two very strong titles: Scum's Wish and Re:Creators.
>>
>>156334270
Whoa really?

That's pretty exciting on both counts!
>>
I actually don't watch a lot of anime anymore, I might start a new series here and there but for the most part I'm really not watching as much as I use to. I think I've lost the patience to try and watch so many of them, like I tried making a list of all the shows I want to watch but there was way too many and I was too lazy to try and watch them all. For instance all the new shows that /a/ watches, I'd try watching them but there are so many that I don't want to bother watching them all.

Nowadays I only watch anime series that become really hyped up and turn into memes, stuff like OPM, and AoT. You know? Just stuff like that, sometimes I'll watch a series if a lot of people recommend it or it interests me. Sadly all I care to watch nowadays is like shounen edgy crap, I don't really care to watch ecchi/moe/slice of life garbage and it seems like that's what is most popular on /a/.
