Alright, serious talk tho.
There are a lot comparable to some extent entertainment mediums out there such as books, movies, cartoons that are way more popular with "normal" people hence there is more of this stuff produced. Even if you want to act elite and consider 99% of mass media a pile of garbage those mediums will still have a higher chance of "quality stuff" appearing than animes.
So what's your reason to watch anime if there are better equivalents out there if you're not going for something that's mostly present only in animes such as CGDCT?

Anything set in a fantasy world full of magic and adventures. Plus points if it involves a Yuusha and a Maou, though that is not necessary. Minus points if it inolves a disgusting otaku traveling to a fantasy world.
The classics. There needs to be more of those.

Imagine you could animate anything you would fucking want and instead of something truly interesting or creative you would just churn out the same mundane school life shows with cute girls over and over.

This is the type of thinking that is holding anime back, we had lots of directors like Miyazaki, Yuasa, Oshi, Shinbo, Kon or Shinkai that proved anime can be a legitimate artistic medium and you want more shallow pandering instead.

GO away, erased was the best animu of last year. How come shitty idol anime and moeblobs sell way more overall? REEEEE
>>
>>157315163
So you can't imagine people unironically having fun watching animes with cute girls for whatever reason (due to their inner fatherly instincts and wanting daughteru or just being lonely, for example) and only can see it as a some sort of pandering that only appeals to degenerates?
>>
>>157315163
How makes you think all of those shows are just shallow pandering? Plenty are legitimately well-crafted and well-written like K-ON!, which takes themes like graduation that anime generally touches upon and expanding on them and developing far past what they tend to end up being. Before someone replies with some smug reply about me using K-ON! as an example, actually watch and finish it before bitching. It's a fairly simple but dense show and yet it's often misunderstood by people who generally dislike shows like it.
>>157315312
There's plenty of variety in anime, even amongst those CGDCT shows and if you can't recognize that, you're either not paying attention or need help.
>>
>>157315388
It's just shameless escapism.
>>

>>157315408
All entertainment is. If you claim to somehow get anything out of it intellectually, then that means you're just embarrassingly undereducated or can't think for yourself.
>>
>>157315408
escapism is an art in of itself, and a very important one
>>
>>157315402
Because well made moe centric anime are rare and hard to recognize.
In most other cases you can tell if anime is good by its premise.
>>
>>157315312
not him, I really don't mind variety and it's something I really enjoy about anime vs western television which always came off as same-y in feel.

I think there's value in everything, but I also feel like everyone always shits on cute things as devoid of value or meaning, even fans of it like >>157314897

maybe I'm just a bottom feeding scum of a viewer that enjoys "pandering" anime but I really don't see cute girl or idol or shows or whatever as all the same as people act like. Like, [email protected] and LL! feel really different to me, LL being a lot more campy and lighthearted and this season everyone kept saying how Hinako Note is like Gochiusa even though the atmosphere of both shows and cast feel very different to me. I always feel like I can appreciate something unique about every cute girl series.

Maybe it doesn't have some philosophical deeper meaning to it all but I don't think it makes it intrinsically trash.
>>
Also I still don't get why people think this type of shows is either best thing ever or the cancer killing anime, they are mostly decent time wasters and nothing more.
>>
>>157315408
Escapism is the whole point of anime.
>>
>>157315285
>and generic kawaii shows are easy to make
That is not true. Not that you would know or care about the huge differences between titles of said type.
Also, what's the problem with lewdposting? Appealing girls are part of the series, so some people will talk about them but that doesn't mean that's all people care or like about them.

And just out of curiousity, what is an aspect that anime can expel at, more so than other media aside from cuteness? I'm genuinely interested what is an aspect that anime can outshine other media (books with hundreds of times as many space to describe things, movies with extreme visual provess, top tier quality check) in.
>>

Because people who either hate them or love them the most will be most vocal about their opinions in a thread like this.
>>
>>157315436
>>157315454
>>157315537
True, but some works are less blatant about it than the others, some are just wish fulfillment while others can give you life lessons, even if it's extremely cliched stuff like friendship.
>>
>>157315464
That's complete bullshit. First of all, moe=/=cute, anything can be called moe if it makes you feel moe, such as Kaiji and Cowboy Bebop, for some personal examples, the notion that a good cute girl show is hard to recognize is stupid because that applies to any show of any genre because it depends on how the individual feels about the execution of the premise, which are generally vague and are not at all indicative of a good show. The premise for Sword Art Online is generally considered to be amazing and the premise of Kare Kano is sort of bland but SAO is shit and Kare Kano is amazing.
>>157315493
For me in particular, it's just that it churns out the most shows that make me feel great to watch, usually due to their breezy atmosphere and calming art.
>>157315597
Yeah and that also applies to cute girl shows. Pan de Peace is garbage because there's nothing to it and its vague theme of bread reeks of a "cute girls with wacky specific theme" idea whereas K-ON! is about how much friendship changes you and how you don't know what you have until it's gone.
>>
>>157315559
How are they not? Most characters are basic archetypes and there is not much animation in these anime.
Lewdposting is cancer because it's low quality posting and often decolves into ERP faggotry.
I miss the time when /a/ could appreciate cute girls without acting like total perverts.

It's not fair to compare anime to books and movies because it's a much newer medium, as I said it mainly excels at variety and it's more interesting than most western TV because of cultural differences.
>>
>>157314547
protip nobody cares about your opinions regardless
>>
>>157315682
>How are they not?
They tend to either be more focused on atmosphere/tone or comedy. Accomplishing a tone properly music, voice acting, and visuals or getting comedic timing down requires talent and effort.
>>
>>157315665
Yeah I know moe has more meaning but in the West people mostly use it for anything that looks adorable and makes them feel good.
They are mainly hard to recognize because it takes more time to recognize if it's actually well made.
Anyway I still think these types of shows are vastly preferable to shitty light novel adaptations with long clickbait titles and battle harems.
>>
>>157315786
All these aspects are equally or more important in other anime genres, especially music and atmosphere.
>>
>>157315867
I'm just saying that they're not necessarily easy to make. There's still thought and effort put into them.
>>
>>157314320
Urara was shit even for cgdct
>>
>>157315467
I didn't really mean it that way. There are some animes that have any sort of plot progression, like LL that you mentioned: saving school from closing, girls not just becoming idols for the lulz but actually setting some goals and competing with others. And then there are some animes like Non Non Biyori that just have a specific setting (school in a village in this case) and literally nothing happening other than that. Just cute girls doing cute things. Even considering the lack of substantial plot NNB is still my favourite anime and I didn't really like LL. It's just that it's not possible to explain the meaningfulness of those kind of animes to most of the people that have a general idea of "this show must have a direction\conclusion otherwise it's boring" because that's something you either understand yourself or completely disagree with.
>>
>>157316047
>>
>>157316060
NNB is a meme show and the only reason people fellate it is because it's probably the first iyashikei they watched and keep using words like "comfy".
>>
>>157316047
>>157316098
Were acceptable subs ever put on acceptable video? I recall only either finding good subs and a watermarked video or a clean video with shitty subs.
>>157316128
I hate that show but people usually tend to state why they like/love it and their reasons tend to make sense. Also, when did comfy become a boogieman term and not just another way to describe something?

>>
>>157316224
How? It's mostly accurate
>>
>>157316178
What else is there to get out of it? If it's knowledge, you can just go read a book and get a more exhaustive understanding of whatever subject it is and if it's life-lessons or things that make you question aspects about life, you should just go out and live it to get that shit because it certainly won't do much for you if you're getting it from fucking video games or anime.

>>
>>157316385
But moe fans are always the ones who get overly defensive whenever someone shittalks their favorite anime
>>
>>157316542
That's just because said shittalking is in itself shit, coming from people who have a lack of understanding of the shows or the appeal of them, usually also misusing "moe" like an idiot. If someone went up to me and said "okay, I understand what K-ON! is going for and I don't like it for these reasons", then I'd be perfectly fine with it. It's just that most """criticisms""" come from a limited or lack of understanding of the shows, like people who think that they're just pandering to pedophiles and have no other appeal.
>>
>>157316238
Maybe it is literally what it is named. Entertainment. Ever thought about that? Maybe some people like all forms of entertainment, rather than looking for escapism.
>>
>>157316723
Entertainment is escapism, though.
>>
>>157316763
Again, for you, maybe.
Having fun isn't just escapism. Some people find life to be fun. Not all just want to escape from it when they're having fun. Someone just like having fun in life.
>>
>>157316831
When referring to entertainment, I'm referring to entertainment media, which is escapism. I wouldn't be talking about just having fun in life because that's irrelevant. Anyway, there's nothing wrong with escapism. The fact that it's seen as an inherently bad thing is terrible.
>>
>>157316905
So every other type of fun is fine, but when it's from entertainment media, it's escapism? That makes sense. But then the term escapism is just meaningless. It's just a second word used for I guess procrastination or entertainment? Just a redundant and unnecessary term which doesn't really means anything? Not sure how you're treating this term anymore.

And yes, escapism isn't wrong. It's a pretty fucking a nice thing. Not sure why you needed to state the obvious, but yes, you're not wrong.
>>
>>157317021
My point is that calling those shows escapism was pointless and that using the term is in itself pointless. People tend to use it in a negative way so I addressed that too.
>>
>>157316905
No matter how had you try to deny it there are pieces of entertainment with thematic and character exploration which compel the consumer to think about and reflect on them in the contest of his own life, effectively the consumer confronts his own existence. On the other hand you have pieces of entertainment whose only goal is to make the consumer forget about his own existence, which is what people mean when calling something escapism.

>>
>>157316659
Cute girls doing cute things is just another way of saying style but no substance. K-ON had some substance. It had characters, rather than just cute girls. That disqualifies it from being just cute girls doing cute things. It was just another story, but one that just happened to have a cast full of cute girls.
Now, the same can't be said about shit like Gabriel Dropout or something. The only thing to see there is the cute girls, nothing more. That's when it becomes a problem.
>>
>>157317511

>>157317501
This is some nice cherry picking.
>>
>>157317245
not him, but it's not as cut and dry as that though, escapism depends on the viewer and their reasons for watching it

watching cute things motivates me a lot, nothing gets me off my ass to work on a long term goal of mine more than watching idol anime.

more serious fiction can result in escapism too depending on the person , I've met a lot of people that spend an excessive amount of time fantasizing about a zombie apocalypse and how life would be simpler than their current situations and meticulously planning the strategies they would utilize the survive it because they watched/played walking dead or something.

now I don't know how good or bad that show/game is, but you can't deny a lot of people think it has substance from what I hear of others talking about it.

>>157317661
i don't even like gabriel dropout, but it has "substance." It's a comedy, and it has plenty jokes, I just don't think they're very funny or well done.
>>
>>157317661

That show's main gimmick is stupid comedy not cute girls.

>>
>>157317733
the comedy relied on the difference of what you expected a devil and and an angel to act like versus the reality of how the characters actually were, which also was the source of their cuteness

you can't like one and not the other in the case of gabriel dropout. If you don't think it's funny that satania has a shallow concept of evil and is good natured at heart despite being a demon, then you probably wouldn't find it particularly cute either.

so you can say that the people who enjoyed the show enjoyed the comedy, yes.

CGDCT is the best because it's unironically the most original type of anime and it's always been that way.

I got told to kill myself multiple times because I don't think K-ON is the best anime ever.

>>157317790
That's haremfags.
Or whatever is the latest show rife with fanservice.

CGDCT shows on the other hand usually mostly shy away from fanservice.
Honestly, I'd actually say that CGDCT shows are on average, teenager repellent.
>>
>>157317790
Honestly, when I was a teenager I loved to hate on moe stuff. I shit-talked K-On at every opportunity despite not having watched it past episode 3, or whichever episode they went to buy gitah.

I don't know if everyone else was like that, but my teenage years consisted of me pretending that Ghost in the Shell and NGE were my favorite anime because they were extremely intelligent to me at the time.

>>157317847
Doing so would still probably be a good idea. To not like K-ON must mean you're an incredibly unhappy person.

You people act like normalfags must hate these shows yet most people would not mind them probably, lot of new anime fans probably start with these, the only people who hate moe are old school elitists.

>>157317863
Same, except most moe makes me feel indifferent now.
I never considered myself an elitist though.
>>
>>157317893
You fail to understand the outrage.
If the male was present from the beginning of the show, no one would have a problem. It's when one gets introduced halfway or late in the show that makes people upset.

Kind of like how a lot of people hated Azusa at first.
And how some quite rightfully still do.
Because Azusa a shit.

Look at HxH, the show's fucking stupid, same with JoJo, yet people claim it's good.
At least CGDCT shows are consistent and creative and at least fucking interesting.

>>157317998
Let's not lie to ourselves now.
>>
>>157317961
I don't mind if normalfags like K-ON (which they do). Lots of K-ONfags are rather proud of the fact that the show has a Ghibli-like appeal (which it does).

However, it just somehow manages to not be very conducive with lowest level of anime fans, who more often than not come into the genre because they're looking for cartoons that seem more mature and oftentimes violent than the ones they grew up with, or that they can see on television in their own country. Kind of like the stuff that airs on Toonami, or whatever.

that is just a lie and you know it. the top anime on any popular anime community usually consists of shounen series.

and I actually like jojo but let's not pretend that the fans don't act like it's the pinnacle of fiction.

>On the one hand, there does seem to be an overwhelming trend in the anime
coming out these days where having cute adolescent females is more important
than providing a compelling story or developing characters to any amount of
real depth. I do see a lot of recycled ideas going on. What I'm trying to
say is that a lot of new anime tends to focus more on the cute females and
their repertoire of cute facial expressions (the ever-popular
"Jello-eyes-streaming water-while-moaning", the "angry monster girl", etc.)
than anything else. I have no problem with cute females per se, but how
about some character development? And a good story while you're at it? In
the lesser-quality anime, whatever "story" is provided is mainly a setup for
the main female characters to run through their repertoire of facial
expressions in different settings. :)

>7/27/98
you could post that response today and nobody would think it's a nearly 20 year old reply. The biggest revulsion to cute things is from people whose exposure to anime is adult swim.
>>
>>157318068
>K-ON is the most entry level moe anime
Given that it's undeniably the most popular, I'm not denying that. But the question is, how entry level is moe anime as a whole?
It's like sayng Love Live is the most entry level idol anime. But I don't think anyone would say that Love Live is an entry level anime.
Unless you just use the term "entry level" to describe anything you don't like.

Why can't people both enjoy mature shows that focus on story as well as comfy shows like CGDCT ones? I always thought one of the biggest alluring parts about anime in general is how many different kinds of anime there can be.
>>
>>157318155
FMA
SnK
OPM
DN
JoJo
Hajime no Ippo
Kenshin
HxH
arguably CG and TTGL

meanwhile the number of CGDCT shows on the top 50 is 0. I'd argue it's at least dominant on the list.
>>
>>157318144
I already said I hate both moe and shounen shit you biased retard.
Moe fags are just more annoying because they are much more forceful.
>>
>>157318242
>Moefags more forceful
The fuck do you mean? Shounenfags are the ones who keep having constant general threads, they're far more cancerous.
>>
>>157318221
A lot of people do.
Especially since a lot of moefans started off as shounenfans/deepfans.

And ESPECIALLY since moe actually isn't a genre.
>>
>>157318120
>implying there are not hordes of ironic weebs jumping on Love Live bandwagon because of SilvaGunner

>>157318277
I honestly don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
But that's probably for the best.
>>
>>157318269
Both have their merits, I like watching a more story-heavy show then watching a comfy series after as a sort of "cooldown" before watching something else.

yes, I wish people would stop that shit, people group sports anime, comedies, atmospheric slice of life and action series all into the same "genre" because they have a cast of cute girls, moe as a "genre" is a fucking retarded idea.

It's a discussion thread, if it was meant to be a thinly-veiled cute girls thread then it failed.
>>
>>157318269
>>157318390
How is it not? There clearly is a huge distinct group of shows whose main appeal is being cute.
>>
>>157318442
because although Girls und Panzer and Gochiusa are completely different in every way in terms of pacing, story, and direction, none of that matters because it has a cast of cute girls so therefore it's the same genre. That is an actual argument that has been made to me before.

the question of what is the "main" appeal of a show depends greatly on who you are asking the question to and their opinion of the show.
>>
>>157318408
I love how everyone who doesn't like your shows is either shounen fag, deep fag, /v/, reddit or some other boogeyman, people just like different things, get over it.

>>157318264
>Shounenfags are the ones who keep having constant general threads
Isn't Kemono Friends the most active general right now
>>
>>157318442
While it's technically a misnomer, honestly unlike the other Anon I don't really care about those shows being called "moe shows".
My point was that moe isn't actually a genre, but rather is something that can in fact be found in numerous genres, if not all genres.
>>
>>157318515
Kemono Friends doesn't count, don't get salty trying to steer away the fact that shounenfags/deepfags are the most obnoxious people on this board.
>>
>>157318515
>Isn't Kemono Friends the most active general right now
Not on Thursdays.

Or whatever day it is that Jump comes out.
>>
>>157318510
Most comedy or romance anime are also completely different and yet they are grouped into one broad genre.
>>
>>157318534
>Kemono Friends doesn't count
How?
And there are tons of others that get constant threads
>>
>>157318515
Anon I don't even consider myself a moefag, I watch a lot of stuff and I guess you could say my taste is shit. I'm just telling the other anon that was saying shounenfags keep to their own threads that he's most probably wrong. I love how you pretty much assumed I'm a moefag just from that though.
>>
>>157318592
>How?
It just doesn't.
And? Shounenfags still manage to contaminate the entire board with their deepshit.
>>
CGDCT is for pedos.
>>
>>157318528
Because there is a clear difference between shows which contain some moe and anime that focus on it
Same way not all anime that contain a bit of fanservice are not considered ecchi.
>>
>>157318562
there are shows that are strictly comedies like Azazel, romance series with limited comedy like Kimi ni Todoke, and romcoms with a mix of gags and romance like Love Hina

if someone groups all 3 of those types under the same umbrella then they too are just as retarded as the person who tells me that an intense sports anime and a laid back atmospheric slice of life are the same genre on the basis of having cute girls.
>>
>>157318619
>Shounenfags still manage to contaminate the entire board with their deepshit
That's just not true, moefags have been dominating this board for years.

I'm not sure what you're "because"-ing about.

In any case, I agree?
>>
>>157318675
And it should stay that way, it's satisfying as fuck seeing how shows like Eromanga-Sensei are dominating over all the other shounenshits this season.
>>
>>157318698
If you enjoy otaku garbage like Eromanga Sensei you have no right to criticize others taste.
>>
>>157318642
whether it focuses on it or not depends on the perspective of the person asking

back when GuP first aired I knew plenty of people who dismissed it as "strike witches with tanks and the only appeal of the show is cute girls" and yet if you ask others the main appeal is the action and sports anime aspects of it with the cute girls as a nice secondary aspect.

ask a person who hates K-On and they'll say the only focus of the show is to watch cute girls eat tea and cake and stupid shit, ask someone who likes it and they'll say something like >>157315402

whether an anime was made primarily to focus on cute girls or something else is a meaningless metric, you can't prove it one way or the other.
>>
>>157318698
Eromanga is pretty much trash regardless of taste.
>>
>>157318719
>>157318762
>Eromanga Sensei

And they say shounenfags aren't contaminating this board. It being popular and outselling other shows like Shitgeki no Kyojin is all worth it.

Japanese writers suck at serious storytelling. Slice of life and cute girls are where they shines. The problem isn't Japan. The problem is American cartoon shows aren't satisfying their audience.
>>
>>157319168
He's not dense, he's just too caring
He likes the girls in non sexual way
>>
>>157319340
Or maybe the Japanese authors could stop being shit at writing by not pandering to lonely otaku and dumb teenagers
>>
>>157319523
So is every harem MC.
>>
>>157319658
Or maybe you should demand better animation and storytelling from American cartoons and let Japanese fans like what they like.
>>
>>157319806
He's still not typical beta character
>>
>>157319523
But they like him in a sexual way and a lot of situations are built around it. Anime like Flying Witch too features male MC, but the tone is completely different sice the girls don't want to fuck him and he isn't the center of everything.
>>
>>157314320
Because Japan can't into comptetantly written stories anymore. 99% that starts out strong ends up shitting the bed at some point due to a variety of reasons so you're better off watching something plotless and fun and go read or watch something else for your dose of competently written stories
>>
>>157319995
Well then writers should just stop being lazy and writing generic low effort light novels
>>
>>157319834
But I have always liked anime more than cartoons.
Mainly because it is much more varied than western cartoons which are either fairy tales for children or crude comedies.
It's sad to see that one is getting worse and the other is improving.
>>
>>157317661
CGDCT is just supposed to describe a show full of girls doing cute things. Putting aside how subjective it is if a show has "substance" or not and what would even count as substance, there's still that CGDCT is just a description. It can apply to K-ON!, Aria, and Sora no Woto, which have, by many peoples' accounts, have substance and that's not taken away by people describing them in a broad term as what they are.
>>
>modern anime writers are shit so they should stop trying and churn out the same inoffensive cute girl anime instead and throw away all the legacy of the great past writers and directors

Shows that have only cute girls doing cute girls are pretty cute but can be insanely boring to sit down and watch most of the time with very few exceptions.

Show needs to have a purpose, a story, a goal or something to move the show forward. If the show only has cute girls messing around and doing absolutely nothing for 12 episodes then its going to be a pretty boring show.

This show is a perfect example. I watched like two episodes of it for this exhibitionist whore but it was just cute girls messing around and I couldn't motivate myself to keep up with it when it was airing. They might be nice shows to marathon when you're bored and have absolutely nothing else to do but outside that they're pretty boring to keep up with.

I miss CGDCT. Now every show has to have some spin or gimmicks. I liked GabDrop or New Game or whatever but I miss just classic cute girls doing cute things like Minami ke. It really begun to shift with K On
>>
>>157325027
Shift from what to what?
>>
>>157318048
No, /pol/ lied to you.
>>
>>157324927
I'd even accept comedy as the purpose as long as it has a plot/story that actually moves forward.

If you can watch the episodes out of order and still enjoy it/understand whats going on in the show because everything goes back to status quo at the end of an episode then its no better than one of those shitty western comedy shows.
>>
>>157324976
Natsume Yuujinchou and Flying Witch are pretty nice.
>>
Anyone else expirienced CGDCT overdose? I used to like those kind of animes a lot, could watch an entire season in a day but now can only watch them if they're ongoing (and actually have fun doing so). Couldn't bring myself to watch K-On! or Yuyushiki because I got bored to death after 1-2 episodes.
>>
>>157325084
No that's normal, you should try to watch different things.
>>
>>157325084
That's a shame because those are both clean and away two of the better titles in the genre.
>>
>>157325158
Yuyushiki is horribly boring and terribly overrated.
>>
>>157325076
Not him. K-ON did kind of start a trend of "cute girls do this specific activity" shows, none of which were at K-ON's level of quality.
>>
>>157325084
I've found that most SoL shows are much better to watch 1 episode a day/week instead of binge watching.
Makes you appreciate them more.

I get tired of watching too much cute girls do cute shit a lot of the time but shows I never get tired of is the battle shows or harem shows. If the girls are cute, the romance is good and the characters arent horribly painful to watch then I can watch that kind of show forever.
>>
>>157325083

I didn't watch that one, is it really that good?

>>157325084
I know that feeling. When the Yuyushiki OVA came out recently I discovered that I didn't really like it a lot anymore, even though Yuyushiki used to be one of my favorite shows back then.
I used to love Hidamari Sketch, now I dislike it.
I wonder if I will even enjoy another season of Gochiusa.

>>157325194
Okay, I just don't see why that is something bad. It adds variety to the genre.

>shows I never get tired of is the battle shows
>>157325239

>>
>>157325295
>I didn't watch that one, is it really that good?
It's fujoshit which MAL overrates solely because the MC is a bishi male.
>>
>>157325336
>>157325194
How is that a bad thing
>>
>>157325295
I dont watch a lot of that kind of show lately because I got tired of them but I find Gochiusa has great comedy, great girls and its actually enjoyable to watch and keep up with weekly.
>>
>>157325372
Eh it's just become silly. I just want cute friends hanging out and being comfy or cute together. Why do they need a gimmick? Is cuteness not enough?
>>
>>157325416
Because there are enough anime about school girls already.
My favourite moe show is probably Girls und Panzer.
>>
>>157325393
GochiUsa and KinMosa are two of the worst SoL anime ever made. There's absolutely zero substance to them and it's way too obvious they're trying way too damn hard to be cute and gay. This kind of show only works when the comedy is the primary focus like in YrYr but without jokes at YrYr's pace a show like this just seems gimmicky (LOOKIT HOW GODDAMN CUTE AND GAY THESE GIRLS ARE).
>>
>>157325329
Cute girl shows are better when theres males in it because it allows the cute girls to display a lot of cute emotions, develop a cute romance and have great interactions with the other gender as opposed to the same boring cute girls do boring things.
>>
>>157325502
Agree, but most of these are just haremshit.
>>
>>157325481
You and your kind is probably why more and more people have started avoiding those shows and their threads. Dealing with rabid yurifags is the worst.
>>
>>157325393
Gochiusa is one of the best shows in the genre with good comedy.
I wish Urara would have had more comedic moments because the few it had were too funny.
>>
>>157325532
I'll take the haremshit over cute girls do boring things most of the time because the first one can actually be pretty enjoyable to watch depending on characters/writing.
>>
>>157325416
>Is cuteness not enough?
Just cuteness is not enough, yet they don't require a gimmick, either. Azumanga Daioh had no gimmick, yet it is an all-time classic.
>>
>>157325502
>and have great interactions with the other gender
Only in the case of the male being a well written and sympathetic character.
And that rarely happens.
It certainly does not happen in Eromanga-sensei.
And talking about ochinchin isn't "great interactions".
>>
>>157325574
Haremshit is even worse, if the author can't write good male MC he shouldn't put one at all
>>
>>157325551
I don't know how you got "rabid yurifag" out of a post criticizing yuri pandering as a gimmick.

Some things can just happen with a male MC. The problem is that a lot of writers end up writing these beta fuck MCs that aren't enjoyable to watch and cant do anything except when the plot requires them to.
>>
>>157325502
>great interactions
>cute romance
if only this were true, and most male protagonists weren't a hollow imitation of Kyon. people rarely give a shit about writing them well.

It's been over a decade since haruhi was written, and people are still fixated on writing "lazy but highly intelligent protagonist who sarcastically inner monologues about his CURAZY life and friends"
>>
>>157325810
Name something not involving male-only anatomy that can happen with a male MC and not with a female MC.
>>
>>157325744
Yurishit in general is just awful because it has no substance at all but the rabit yurifags are horrible too. These people see two girls together and start shipping them together like they're the gayest dykes in the whole world.
God forbid its a show with only girls because they'll pretend they're all lesbians for each other.
>>
>>157325784
Hibike has too much drama for CGDCT
>>
>>157325568
You have genuinely terrible taste if you think Urara or Gochiusa are good shows. They are mediocre at best. Also, Kinema Citrus is a terrible studio.
>>
>>157325824
That and "typical beta male who can never discern when girls like him and acts like he just had acid thrown in his face when he sees a naked woman."
Female MCs seem to have a much wider variety of personalities than male MCs.
>>
>>157325889
You're the only one with shit taste here

Hibike and Maid Dragon were both AOTS. Phantom World was obviously shit, as it was battleharem.
>>
>>157326054
All three of those shows are pretty much the worst kind of otaku pandering trash. KyoAni is a really good studio, but the works they choose to adapt are really immature.
>>
>>157325917
yes, I've honestly become more of a yurifag recently on this basis alone after I realized how many fucking shows were ruined to me solely from the protagonist. Just liking the girls can't carry a show alone for me if the protagonist makes me want to stop watching every second they're on the screen. at least with a female cast they're all written to be likable instead of written to be a stand-in for me by being as dull as humanly possible.
>>
>>157325851
Why should I even bother to argue?

Its pointless to argue with the kind of person that is absolutely allergic to males because there's no convincing them. The show ends up a million times better when you add well written characters of both genders and you appeal/pander to many audiences while doing so instead of just the rabid yurifags that want to fantasize about lesbians.
>>
>>157326104
>>157326054
Hibike was horrible and forgotten pretty easily. Phantom world wasnt exactly good but it was at least better than that shit and Maid dragon was miles better than both.

Without a male MC, no one can cry about a lack of focus on women.

OK, that one's a legitimate contender, I'll give you that, but Maid Dragon wins because it's more well-made.
KyoAni will win AOTS whenever they make any anime that isn't battle focused or gay swimming.
>>
>>157326337
You dont have to relate to them or self insert on them. You're not supposed to do it.

Shows with heterosexual romance are better than shows with awful yuri (bait, implied or forced) romance because you can do really cute stuff and have actually emotional scenes or stuff full of impact.

If you try to make a yuri show then you just end up with garbage like Sakura trick.
>>
>>157326411
I don't self insert on dull male protagonists, that's precisely why I don't find them enjoyable

I don't think you need to relate to a character to find them enjoyable but most protagonists in any romance focused series cannot stand on their own as a character.

If you're literally limiting it to just all female CGDCT shows then maybe I would agree with you. I would at least say it's in the same ballpark as LWA and both are much better than the other 4 shows were (especially Nyanko-less Days).

This is traditionally what ends up being /a/'s AOTS, with few exceptions, such as GJ-Bu, as Kyoro may as well be female, or whatever ends up being AOTS this season, since it sure as fuck isn't Hinako fucking Note.
>>
I dunno how anyone would feel this strongly about this. I watch it rarely just before I go to work. It's just a transient feel good thing I like to do. I've never paid any more attention to cgdct apart from that. It's too mundane to be even getting angry about.

>>157327738
What kind of "intellectual stimulation" do you get from fucking anime? Name five shows that are intellectual and not trounced by any book I could pick up at random at any thrift shop.

Oh wow

>>157330265
Sakura Quest is to Shirobako as Hinako Note is to K-ON.
>>
>>157330502
>only the first one is an opinion
>the third one is a question/challenge you have no response to
>>157330506
It's not comparable to Shirobako besides with character designs

I'm not even a CGDCTfag but "deep" and shounen fags usually do originate from reddit and shitpost constantly. Most of the time it's them shitposting on moefag threads. Moefags are already trouble enough but shounenshits make it even worse.
>>
>>157330676
The tone and way of going about exploring that shit is completely different. I bet you think Giant Gorg and Infinite Ryvius are comparable because they're Sunrise shows with giant robots.

Well, there are Uraras in this thread.

>>157325481
>trying hard to be gay
Nah, the Kinmozas are very naturally gay, they don't have to try hard at all, it's one of the most well done gays ever.
>>
Don't any of you blabbing about substance realize how subjective substance is?
>>
>>157326365
There's the whole plot with Chiya's mom, becoming first rank, all the characters actually having reasons to reach their dreams, and the evil gods and mystery in the town.
>>
>>157323791
you have to go back normalfag.
>>
>>157316150
You'll need to add the GJM subs to the 1080p Lolihouse raws yourself for Urara because fansubber 720p dogma is fucking stupid.
>>
>>157330251
Whole show was good. Not my fault people can't appreciate it.
>>
Well, this was quite an interesting thread, I expected moefags circlejerk with shounen fags shitting up the thread, but there was actually some decent discussion among all the shitposts.
>>
>>157325864
>these people see two girls together and start shipping them together
>they'll pretend they're all lesbians for each other
Most CGDCT are deliberately constructed so that people can see them as gay if they want.
>>
>>157331080
Weren't those the memesubs?
>>
>>157332951
I didn't think the subs were bad, but I did drop the show halfway through because it was a bad imitation of GochiUsa/KinMosa, already bad anime.
>>
Yuyushiki and Yuru Yuri are my favorite cute girls shows, I wish more CGDCT had this level of yuri pandering
>>
>>157314727
Reading 1984 doesn't make you intelligent, but it's relevance and cultural impact should count for something when people say it's their favorite.
>>
>>157336649
1984 has never been more relevant than today. Look at Wikipedia and the mainstream media while keeping 1984 in mind.
>>157334515
You have good taste bro.
>>
Important question: why is it that most of the shitposters who can do nothing other than compare shows of this kind always post Urara when they do so? Did some popular YouTube faggot praise/shit on that show recently or something close to that? Because I find it difficult to believe that so many people only started watching cute shows this year.
>>
>>157336916
I really do think it's mostly newfags. There's no other explanation for such a mediocre, ordinary SoL to get such attention.

Urara was memorable, simple as that. You don't need to justify it with some youtube bogeyman.
>>
Why do we still humor idiots who pretend anime is shit, every season is bad with only 2 or 3 good shows, and who think their high school required reading makes them an intellectual?
>>
>>157337307
Memorable as the worst all girls SoL in recent history, and proof the yurifags really do have no standards?
>>
>>157337571
>in recent history
It wasn't very good, but Hinako Note is clearly worse.
>>
>>157337596
Nah, Hinako is pretty good, and the OP and ED are great.
>>
>>157337571
Hinako Note made me realize how good Urara actually is, people was spoiled and thought Urara was nothing special, but when Hinako appeared you see how an actual bad SoL looks like, and realize that Urara was actually really far from being bad.
>>
>>157337571
No, proof that you have shit taste
>>
>>157337792
Kadokawa should just shut down their discount Kirara magazine, pan de peace and Hinako Note are trash, I fear what's coming next from it.
>>
>>157337792
Nah, Hinako is just straight up better. Urara was pretty awful.

>>157337809
Quiet, yurifag.

Great logic, as expected of someone who thinks literal shit like hinako note is a good show.

fug been working on backlog for the past month and only just now noticed Nyaa and Bakabt are gone. literally shaking. not really, but what the hell do i do now?

>>157338428
Just ignore all the haters, be happy there was none when it aired, unlike Hinako that is full of them.
>>
What's wrong with Hinako Note?
>>
>>157314547
The true connoisseur can enjoy everything in that list though. Like me. Well, maybe not Twilight.
>>
>>157341255
Even if there's nothing wrong, that was a pointless bump, just let this thread die.

Watching Urara no Meirochou right now. I love the uniqueness of the setting and fantasy theme in this show. So Chiya's mom is a first-rank fortune teller?
>>
I'm 22 and this is my favorite genre lately. What's happening to me?
>>
>>157342605
I'm 36 and it has been my favorite genre for like 10 years now.
>>
>>157342605
I'm not sure, but I think it may just be a part of growing older.
>>
>>157314439
>not liking both
I'm watching Hellsing Ultimate and Gochiusa at the same time. Shit is so cash.
>>
>>157342605
Embrace it anon.
>>
>>157342605
You're growing up, obviously. We've been trying to tell you all this time that CGDCT is for mature adults with stressful lives. Now you believe us.
>>
>>157342605
Drop CGDCT and watch Iyashikei instead.
>>
>>157344367
The two genres overlap considerably, anon. Non Non Biyori, ARIA, Hidamari Sketch, Sketchbook: Full Color's, Tamayura... all CGDCT.
And yes, iyashikei is the best.
