confess your sins /a/
I have never seen evangelion
I refuse to watch Keijo!!!!!!!! just to spite a friend of mine
I finished Evangelion the series but I'm too scared of seeing characters die to watch any of the movies.
Same. The humor was just not funny to me.
I watched Evangelion and i agree that it's definitely good but resent it all the more because of how much it is lorded by /a/ elitist.
I also think that regardless of how good evangelion was, Shinji being a massive bitch for most of it was a huge detractor from the quality, as i was thrust out of the narrative in frustration. Also it was too fucking convoluted. I shouldn't have to get on a wiki just to understand the plot
>don't like and dropped cowboy bebop, evangelion, code geass at first ep.
>believe first 3 star wars films are better.
>haven't watched dragon ball shows after the first time that cat god of destruction film.
>don't like loli.
>believe there are too many gundam films and ive only watched most of ...freedom i think is the name
>think that voltes V is still the best gundam.
>just started with 4chan (only /a/ for now) because I was more idiotic than i currently am.
I go to deviantart whenever I want to fap because I can't fap to images anymore.
I only watch seasonal anime now, often keep up with absolute trash ones too just for a single cute girl.
There's no point to digging up old ones to watch, since other than the masterpieces it's all the same shit. Might as well stay recent.
I watch anime like this
If I'm interested in it I will download and watch it
If I'm not sure I'll steam the first episode and if I like it and download the rest
If the show looks like crap and I still want to watch it only as a completionist I stream it
>trying to watch anime on this screen
1) I only watch originals, and limit adaptations to one per season, if that.
2) I genuinely Enjoyed Bleach and Naruto, but have never picked up One Piece due to the art, even though I know the story is probably awesome
3) I have watched and read entire series solely cause there was a milf in it, even if she is barely a background character.
4) I've never watched Cowboy Bebop, and at this point everything has been spoiled so I don't see the point in ever actually watching it anyway.
5) I enjoyed the final Madoka movie.
6) I will break rule 1 for rule 3, but I will not be happy about it.
7) I enjoy the films of Wes Anderson
8) I love ShindoL and his zany outlook on life
9) I got cold sweats when nyaa finally died, and haven't bothered to find out what the new go to is
10) I ran out of sins, but I hate odd numbers.
>never finished NGE
>think Cowboy Bebop is utter garbage
>don't get the appeal of raburaibu and am struggling to watch it
>gochiusa is utter trash
>medooka a shit
>asuna is a lowly piece of crap, Suguha best girl
need I go on, or just end it right here?
I've never seen
Kill la Kill
I thought it was stupid then and I think that it still is.
Here's a guide if you're ever interested, SEED and X are good for beginners
I have been here since 2004 and I have contributed no worthwhile posts to /a/. Only shiposts.
I also never seeded on bakabt and got warned so used my account to sign in the sign out for what I want and torrent with the public tracker.
Looking back only one of these bit me in the ass.
I often watch anime on my phone
on my bed under the covers in a fetal position, it's incredibly comfy.I don't stream it, I just download and then store it on my phone to watch
I prefer streaming because I'm too lazy to look for good torrents and my country is cucked by law when it comes to them.
I dropped Lain after 3 episodes.
I try to stay away from almost any show that /a/ hypes to high heaven unless it has copious amounts of fanservice.
I wrote that weird Aldnoah porn that started as het but turned homo halfway through.
>I prefer dubs because it is hard to read subs
>i've never watched any of the mechashit that /a/ loves
>i download everything i watch from a watermarkless streaming site
>i watch everything on my phone
>i think ninja slayer is better than inferno cop
>i like makoto shinkai films
>i use vlc
>i still haven't watched or finished classics like haruhi, gunbuster, lucky star, sayonara zetsubou sensei, azumanga daioh, etc
>i've only read the first volume of yotsubato
I mainly watch anime as a social activity with my friends and/or girlfriend, and it's much harder for me to enjoy watching anime on my own. There are only about 5 or so series I've actually taken the initiative to watch on my own over the past 7 years.
I didn't like Lain mostly because I didn't understand most of it.
I watched and read some Fate/shit and thought it was extremely overrated and dropped it in 3 episodes, haven't looked back.
PSG was complete trash.
Almost 100% of all anime that is rated highly by people are actually not that good at all ex. Code Geass and the shows I mentioned above.
I was enjoying Shaman King Flowers and got sad when it got axed. Currently enjoying Boruto and I'm hype for Rurouni Kenshin's Hokkaido Arc even though I know they will get bad at some point
Basically, I fucking love casual cashgrab sequels.
I got a heartly kek out of imagining you trying read manga, a long post or some porn, just scrolling up and down frantically avoiding the deadzones.
Buy a new monitor, anon. That's not okay.
>Excluding the possibility that anon is an man
I assume all "femanon" post are by men at this point.
Doesn't apply to the anon i responded to, but a reminder
Gunbuster, FLCL and Gurren Lagann are my top three anime shows and I rewatch them at least once a year.
I think that Gundam Seed, while not being a masterpiece, isn't as bad as people make it to be.
The only good Rebuild of evangelion movie is the first one.
I actually do have to scroll like an idiot with finger spams but I'm used to it. If I can't see something by scrolling I'll screencap it and view it in paint.
Now try to imagine how fun it is to look at threads with copious amounts of spoiler tags
Stopped watching anime for a solid 6 years, didnt watch most of the popular animes of that time (Bleach/Naruto/OP, Code Geass)
Never seen EVA
I saw Spirited Away and i liked it but it didnt really leave a big impression.
I read the Fate/Stay Night manga against recommendations and was pissed when I found out it ended just after Gil shows up with no conclusion
I'm currently reading the VN so I've never actually experienced the ending of any route
do NOT start with SEED unless you're really fond of the shitshow that is early-to-mid 2000s mediocre anime
X is a fine starting place although its a bit more romance heavy than most traditional Gundam shows
you could also start with an OVA so you don't have to spend 2 to 3 cours deciding if you like a series: I highly recommend 0080: War in the Pocket and Stargazer, although with the latter you'll be left wanting to watch SEED and Destiny for background info and they aren't nearly as top quality
I thought the ending to Usagi Drop was okay. It's a pretty noticeable rush job, but not nearly as unforeshadowed as people make it out to be,
also top mindbreak doujin material
I unironically watch anime on Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll. Have a Tumblr account and I follow blogs that are Fate related which post Emiya X Cú occasionally. Other blogs are JoJo, vidya and Mommy as well. I post 80% of 4chan posts on mobile and use AT&T to bypass bans no longer how short they are. I also am EOP so If dubs are available I watch those always over sub. I contemplate allahu ackbaring Akasic Records threads because why the fuck not. I post in Fate thread about how I would unironically use no catalyst in a HGW and spammed that for 5 threads in a row for about a week or so. I wait until at least 3-4 eps are out in a season and then 3 episode testing shows I might enjoy or shitpost about like say Battle Harems because masochism and I wonder how LNs get away with it. I browse /gfd/ threads on /d/ and tripfag occasionally on /fgog/
I am the cancer /a/ fears.
If someone tells me they didn't like nor didn't understand Lain I automatically assume they're retarded and proceed to dislike/ignore them.
This applies to both the internet and real life.
>I dropped lain after 9 episodes and think texhnolyze is much better
>Baccano was great the first time I watched it, but now I think both dub and sub has horrible voice acting
>I dont think Kill la Kill is good, and while TTGL is better, it's not by a ton
>Vagabond and Vinland saga are very good, but a bit overrated
>besides the monogatari series, 91 days is probably one of the better shows to come out in a good while
I fucking love characters like Mikasa and Touka, I think they fall under coodere?
I'm also re-playing P3P with FeMC and am busting Junpei's balls every chance I get and plan on romancing no dudes
But there no tripfags in fgog besides 2 anons what made team for 4chan Cup.
i greatly dislike miyazaki, klk and gurren lagann. miyazaki especially as he's basically one huge entitled cunt at this point, and he's a nightmare to work with. the only good ghibli film anyway is mononoke hime.
Pic related, Facebook page is already at 24,000 likes in 20 hours. I genuinely am a EOP and won't play a game that isnt in my language.
>I genuinely am a EOP and won't play a game that isnt in my language.
Pretty sad, you miss really good times and memes.
was in fgog before we was moved on vg
I used to be an /a/utist who would sometimes put on a normie mask in public. But now I'm a normie who tries to fit in here.
I think you have good taste, anon.
I've only seen two episodes of FLCL, multiple times. I own it on dvd and I still haven't watched it. Listened to the soundtrack hundreds of times though. In addition to that, I've also never seen Akira. And I've owned that longer than I have FLCL.
I have only watched around 10 or so shows The cultural aspects are more often more interesting than the shows themselves.
Evangelion is a masterpiece,despite it's empty symbolism I don't understand why people argue over waifus or best girls
I have a system for watching anime which essentially ensures that I don't directly choose what I watch, and I always have to finish everything that I start and must watch everything in the franchise, including OVAs, picture dramas, etc. To avoid having too many series on the go at once, I don't get to start a new one until I have finished something that is 50 episodes or over. Because this system often results in me getting very long-running anime I don't necessarily want taking up my HD space,
I regularly stream such shows.
am a nice, friendly, if slightly awkward person with several real-life friends whom I keep in contact with and regularly see in real life.
>I have never seen a ghibli movie other than princess mononoke and like half of the one with the girl that has to marry a cat
>I've never seen Eva but judging by this thread that seems to be common
>I dropped death note at episode 36
>the last time I ever sat down to watch a full episode of dragon ball and naruto was seven years ago
>those two along with pokemon are the only anime I'll accept the dub of
>I keep reminding myself to finally start jojo, then I immediately forget about it as soon as I get the chance to start
>I like shounen and romance, and since those two don't go well together I can't really find anything that suits my interests that much
>I instantly hate any girl with light pink hair
>same goes for twin tails and tsunderes, especially the latter
>ecchi harem school = immediately discarded, not even gonna bother watching it
>I don't watch mecha, even if there's a mecha anime that seems really interesting and everyone says it's good I practically have to force myself to watch even one episode
I only come to /a/ to lurk and occasionally stir shit in SnK threads
I'm a fucking maniac on /v/ and a decent individual on /m/ and /lit/
I've stopped watching anime because I realized how shitty Japanese storytelling is. I still lurk around /a/ because I see you guys more than some of my
irl friendseven if I don't know who you are.
really anime was kinda always a normie medium
foreign but normie
>half the fanbase is (and was always) female
>most of Japan grew up on anime
>any kid that grew up in the 90s and after also grew up with it
>originally loved overseas because it was "grown up cartoons"
Buy a projecter and watch it on the cat.
I'm not sure how many of these count as sins but I'll list them anyway:
I don't read manga very much and pretty much exclusively read it on my phone. All I've read basically is a little over half of Jojo, half of Mitsudomoe and I used to be up to date with Hero Academia, Monster Musume and One Punch Man but now I'm a little behind.
I normally detest and question rewatching anything however I have rewatched P&S (10+ times), Mitsudomoe (3 times) and Soul Eater (2 times).
I hate threads which consist of character > character but sometimes contribute to them. I never make threads about my favorite anime series because I can't think of anything insightful to talk about so I guess I'm just as bad.
I thought Madoka was boring. I gave it a 4/10 on MAL.
I thought Nichijou was boring. I gave it a 7/10 on MAL. I love the artstyle and music and if it was just the Hakase house I'd probably give it a 9/10 or possibly a 10/10.
I feverishly note down everything I watch even outside of anime, if MAL didn't exist I'd be a mess.
I LOVE loli as characters if that makes sense, most of my favorite anime include or feature them. Older, masculine girls are my kinda thing though. "Bifauxnen" or "Orekko" I think describe what I like.
>I gave it a 4/10 on MAL.
>He actually rates things on MAL
I thought that halfway through but kinda just kept going, my bad.
I bought an old Japanese shitbox for 6000 CAD because Initial D told me to
I tried watching Tatami Galaxy but they talk too much so I couldn't keep the pace with subs without freezing every few seconds and ultimately dropped it after a couple episodes.
I believe that if the dub is good (it's rare, but it happens) watching dubbed is better than watching subbed.
It's funny how there are direct western parallels for some things
LN and YA adaptations are pretty much the same thing, it's just made for basic bitches and dickbags to self-insert rather than otaku
Early Deadpool is basically a shounen
I never stopped using VLC.
People I know in real life know about my waifu.
Through no fault of my own, just a serious of unfortunate events. Thankfully they don't know the deepest level of it.
I haven't had the drive to watch any seasonal anime since mid 2016, and any anime I've watched since then has been pre-2000's.
Back in high school I told a girl off for saying I was an otaku.
In hindsight she wouldn't have understood why anyone should hate that term. As I get older I'm forced to act like a normalfag more and more, whether it's for school, work, or internships. People tell me that I seem like a very sociable person despite being the opposite, and often I feel like I'm losing who I am at heart. I've made multiple attempts to give up being a /a/utist, and even to get a girlfriend, only for it to blow up in my face and realize I don't want that life. Giving up my normalfag life is impossible too, for obvious reasons.
I think about suicide constantly but eventually come to think that I'd be inconveniencing my family.
I first started browsing /a/ and 4chan in general when I was 13, almost 8 years ago.
I've tried to watch Lain like 4 times, but I can never get to the end of it, it's just so fucking slow. I get that it's muh deep animoo but they could have at least made it not so boring.
I have a hard time finishing shows in the first place so that isn't helping me.

Sometimes i wonder if I'm being too much of an ass with a superiority complex, but reading this thread just confirmed i was right all along.
The only thing I enjoy anymore are harems, but I hate harems without harem endings. For some reason harems endings are a rarity, so I'm constantly re-watching and re-reading the same things.
You kinda have to suppress them if you want to keep friendships
Though that kind of friendship is one where you act friendly but use them to feed your ego, and no harm is done if you're good at it
Friendships where you and the friend feel superior to the rest of the group but mutually enjoy one another's company, now that's something to be cherished
It's okay, anon, so do I.
As for myself,
Never saw the use in learning Japanese to enjoy anime "more" and am only learning it now in order to read untranslated mystery novels.
I actually watched Bakemonogatari for the plot, which made everything that came afterwards frustrating.
Most of my writing ends up inspired by character dramas like Evangelion on account of my own life not being complicated or interesting enough to be worth discussing.
His name is Jimmy Kudo and the anime < the manga.
I read very little manga, only those I can get physical copies of. There are some exceptions, but not many.
I assume that everyone who has seen less anime than me is a newfag and those who have seen more are idiots who watch mostly shit.
I have disdain for LNs and VNs, I consider their adaptations garbage as well.
There might be more that most of /a/ would not approve of, but I don't think of them as sins, so fuck that.
The only sin there is the first one and even that's questionable
The rest of it sounds like you're trying to fit in. Not because that's not how an /a/non is, but because you aren't (or pretend not to be) aware of that.
>idiots who watch mostly shit
Kinda true but if you watch anime every season for years you are bound to have watched a lot of garbage.
>I have disdain for LNs and VNs, I consider their adaptations garbage as well.
Mostly true, but there are some gems out there when it comes to VNs
macross is better than gundam
also Sheryl is worst Macross Frontier girl and 2nd worst in the macross franchise 1st being
original series Minmey
EVA isn't for everyone, anon.
It's mostly a split between you like it or you don't.
If you even show anymore interest in it, look for an eva themed thread late at night where there's usually civil discussion.
I fapped to YotsubaI'm so sorry, I didn't read any of the manga before hand... I had no idea... I thought she was just another cute anime girl...
I don't think there's anything wrong with MAL if you use it purely for having a track of thing you've watched
I've fapped to hentai doujins before watching the series it's based on
I don't have a waifu, but multiple best girls in their series
Thinking everyone who saw less than you is a newfag and those who saw more have no filter is pretty standard for /a/. I don't think that stance is even really all that problematic, assuming you aren't dismissive. VNs and LNs just aren't that good in general, LNs especially, as long as you (again) aren't dismissive that's fine.
Going off your two posts, the only really immature thing i see is thinking that you are for thinking the way you do.
I have not spent a single fucking cent to support the anime industry
I've gotten into series because of homo doujins but unlike the retards at tumblr I don't get mad at what's essentially a snowbaal's chance in hell.
Sometimes I still would like it to happen if only to motivate bitches to translate the doujins.
That's why I'm here anon. Can I ever be forgiven?
I've never seen Kantai Collection
But I want to dress up like Shimakaze and get dicked hard af while being called cute
I got a boner when I saw the chapter 125 of Tokyo Ghoul :Re
Initial D got me into cars and now I like to watch the British Touring Car Championbship and shitpost on /o/ more than /a/ and buy an MX-5 in the next month
I got to episode 7 of evangelion before I dropped it. It was pretty awful and I don't really know why people like it so much.
I tried to get into OG gundam but I dropped it too.
Never seen Dragon Ball or Ghost in the shell.
I'm just here to draw porn of cute anime girls.
No shame in that anon
Other than the Miata
I don't know how much more of the show is shit, but those first 7 episodes were awful. The series is only 26 episodes long.
Defending the whole "It gets better around the middle" idea of FF13 or Steven Universe is autistic.
Can't blame you to be fair, its only worth watching if you enjoy seeing anime characters cry all the time and have soppy breakdowns and gratuitous speeches.
I don't know about SU or ff13 though j doubt either of those has redeeming qualities whatsoever
What part of NGE did you consider awful?
The first few episodes do have pacing issues, i dropped it around the same point the first time i tried watching because it bored me. I can really only say that it gets better in that regard, because the later episodes just have more things going on overall.
For being a Tumblrfag I mean m-muh inclusion and m-muh gay ships shit
Absolutely shameful, and I wish I could turn back time to beat the autism outta me
I keep track of my finished series, dropped series, and backlog in one notepad document titled "animes". I made it before I realized that plural is just anime but I can't just change it after I've had it so long
Back when i was in highschool, i was living in a dorm. I had (and still have) trouble shitting in public toilets.
What helped was imagining Natsu, Ichigo, Naruto, Goku and Luffy all squatting on a cliff and taking a gigantic and volatile shit (they were like 20m apart) into an endless ocean. Natsu would shit a burning aerosol of feces, Ichigo would be letting out a diahrrea getsuga tenshou, Naruto would shit out half-liquid chunks in a spiral pattern, Goku would gattling out solid chunks with strands of blonde hair mixed in here and there, and Luffy would expel a continuous log that would bend in the air as it travelled at an almost supedsonic speed.
All to the Naruto fight background music, the one with the flutes.
I figured since the shonenshits were shonenSHITS and not good for anything, i might as well put them to use.
I hadn't told a single soul until now.
I've had a multiple number of times to watch Code Geass and I just can't get into it. I don't really see what /a/ sees in the show unless it was just that it was only fun when it was seasonal.
Anon I've been on 4chan for years and I think this takes the cake for the most autistic thing I've ever read not just here, but anywhere.
The music in cross ange is freaking amazing
I can forgive this if you didn't do dirty stuff such as
Not watching KanColle anime isn't a bad thing, actually, but wanting to dress up as a boatslut
is something I've also considered.
I don't like anime.
I only started to watch it because I slowly lost all my friends and didn't have anybody to talk to/anything to do
I wanted something to fill my empty days with and a community to discuss about things.
Thank you /a/, sometimes you guys make me feel better after a tiring day
I've been sitting at my computer all day, accomplishing nothing and putting off the only two things I'm obligated to do on a weekly basis.
I don't even see myself getting stuck in a career,
there isn't much of a future for me.
I used to self insert into every anime I watch. I'd only watch things if it had a male character, and dropped any anime that involved the main character doing something morally controversial.
I lost my virginity to the movie "Your name" Around 4 months ago. It was lit desu
I don't even watch anime anymore but I have nowhere else to go.
