Go fuck yourself
Kemono Friends won winter and KF 12.1 won spring
Kemono Friends won Winter and Spring, hand's down.
Go to the stalker threads and see how /a/ fears any mention of KF
It's the same shit as YoI. It used to shit up every single stalker threads when the first volume sales were out, but now people don't really care, at least they don't post about it in stalker threads.
That is the exception because it was the first time KMNW arrived.
Now THIS is the recent one. It was derailed so hrd it got deleted
KF was confirmed to have grown up to 200k now. Can't waity for the next stalker
Probably because there was no new information regarding its sales until just a couple days ago. There was an entire thread talking about KF sales. http://desuarchive.org/a/thread/157528758
I guess the fact that it's being sold as a book series is preventing good tracking of sales numbers, as the number of stores tracked concerning books is far lower than the number of stores being tracked for BD sales.
I've been on every single stalker thread and YoI's+Free's impact on Stalker threads was laughable when compared to Kemono Friends
KF derails every thread so bad that after the 120k sale was posted, stalker threads stopped coming for entire 2 weeks until Kimi no Nawa
So is this the same people that were spamming "Reddit Witch" last year? What do they want?
>KF derails every thread so bad that after the 120k sale was posted, stalker threads stopped coming for entire 2 weeks until Kimi no Nawa
The fact that this happened is hilarious.
Grimoire of Zero is literally the least hipster anime this season. It's like saying that Scrapped Princess is pretentious.
In case you are wondering, ID-0 is Hipster's Choice of the season.
The only good anime i have watched this year and it isn't even well animated
osomastsu san season 2 is the only anime im waiting to watch this year
literally what else is there to watch that will actually be satisfying in the end maybe konosuba season 2 if there was a cofirmation for season 3
or what other chinese cartoon is going to deliver good comedy and or hype fights
This nigger knows what's up
>little reddit academia
I detect anger, and possibly jealousy.
It's a shame, but no one is actually watching the AotS.
Which format? Strawpoll a.k.a. Proxypoll or Google Docs a.k.a. the creator of the poll can literally edit the results spreadsheet at their own whim?
Replace that incest shit with FAGs and we're golden
I wouldn't assume salt is involved here.
>if your favorite anime wins, spam poll results frequently
>if your favorite anime doesn't win, question validity of poll frequently
Isn't this what /a/ always does regardless of salt?
There's only one contender for AOTS this season.
Nice to see a fellow patrician in here.
This thread, the posts in it and the lives of everyone in it is a form of insult to life itself. Yeah yeah inb4 me included. I seriously hope you fucking kill yourselves. Sage.
Maybe a little bit of yuri anime will help you calm down. Dozo.
>kekmeme furries faggot thinks little witch academia is a Spring anime
Pretty much this >>157685192 There have been plenty of other cute girl anime which don't make the cut because of shit animation, voice acting, writing or some combination of the three.
So cute girls is an requirement to be considered AOTS, got it
No shit faggots. If there is more than one cute girls anime a season, of course we'd need some other criteria to judge them.
Kemono Friends is more popular than your favorite anime.
Just don't shitpost with Namori's characters please.
Eromanga Sensei has plenty of QUALITY even with a far bigger budget and most of the "humor" is unintentional from the godawful character interactions and plot twists. Hinako Note is mediocre but benign; Eromanga Sensei is a plague.l
>If there is more than one cute girls anime a season
You guys ready for eromanga little dance going meme status?
If you don't think KF is the most normalfag show in a long time you need to fuck off back to r*ddit. The only reason it didn't flop was normalfaggots.
>since YuYuYu except it actually paid off.
It's an acquired taste, the series isn't for everyone unlike some certain other shows.
>telling others to stay mad when you've clearly been triggered by the person you've been impersonating since May 18th
How much did kememeshit friends end up selling after all?
what was it about it maid dragon that made it so... perfect? the warmth, the genuine laughs, the incredible chemistry between the characters? aided by a soundtrack that was second to none, this series will be remembered as one of those rare classics, brief but bright, smiling back on us in perpetuity
This is literal image spamming. Why aren't the mods doing anything?
If you want to discuss why Kemono friends is so good then atleast provide some arguments instead of acting like a bot
I believe the proper term for this kind of response to somebody liking things he doesn't like is "autistic screeching."
>g... guys s.. stop posting images in the image board!
Plebbit plz go
>it's popular on /a/ so it's AOTS
>it has cute girls so it's AOTS
>it sold the most so it's AOTS
Fuck all of you faggots. Kill yourselves and get off of /a/.
so youre saying people dont talk about their chosen manga because theyre afraid of being judged?
thats kind of sad t b h
someone recommended me Shino-chan the other day and i would have never read it otherwise because MAL sucks dick for finding non mainstream stuff
I haven't seen someone BTFO this badly since Ariana Grande fans.
Demi-chan was better than both Maid Dragon and Kemono Friends
Seems shit just has to be cute and it will be aots
Mods, don't you think the shitposting is going a little overboard this time? Just saying, never seen someone this mad over people liking a show that they don't, I just been here 7 years though, maybe i'm too new.
The thread's shit anyways so who cares. By the way Eromanga is shit.
>Characters are great
Is Eromanga Sensei your first anime? There's not a single thing that I found interesting in either the gimmick harem characters or the hackneyed wish fulfillment plot. If it wanted to be interesting it would focus less on the romance/light novel bullshit and more on Sagiri's stunted emotional and mental development and her brother's attempts to get her outside.
Can't you guys put some effort in? Most of your insults are "reddit this" or "flop that". Do you just hate whichever series in question and refuse even to try to make a half-way decent joke?
Sometimes I wish the robot was active on all boards.
My nigger. Kemono Friends and Frame Arms Girls are both great.
Know what has good animation?
SAO, Naruto, Nichijou, and Bleach
It's the writing that makes something good
>Not Tsugumomo or Alice to Zouroku.
Then what is Eromanga sensei?
>not the pure dragon slut
I know these threads are cancer but cmon, it's obvious who should win.
Easily the best show this year, by an ernormous margin, also I would like to engage in intercourse with Balaeniceps rex-chan with the consent (or lack thereof) of this fictional feathered creature being of no significance to whether or not I partake of such acts.
2D anime fans on suicide watch, posting their lamentations on social media and 4chan.
Kemono Friends has proven that the West and Japan and the rest of the world doesn't care about 2D shit.
2D animators are less valuable than ever and still easily replaceable.
Soon, technology will improve to the point where one 2D animator trained in using modern software can do the job of 200 other 2D-animators, coloring and inbetweening and doing fluid animation sequences all by himself, making all the pathetic otaku and SEA-shits working on anime superfluous. Then those laid-off 2D-animators will be forced to shitpost on 4chan and 2chan and 2ch and other social media because they wasted time being worthless animators instead of learning things.
>AOTS poll was ONLY posted in flip floppers threads so only they could vote
Go find a thread posting the google doc poll outside of those threads, I dare you.
>anything but complete dogshit
Because it makes more money and is more popular than everything else, and thus will get sequels and games and more attention than anything else, which will make other producers hop on and create more shows of that kind in the hope of making even more money, which means less resources will be spend on anything else.
>claim that any show ever is AOTS
>a hundred people start yelling at you for liking something they dislike
Literally every single time, this is hilarious.
It's even better this season due to the massive anal apocalypse that salesfags suffered, which even caused them to expose all of their newfaggotry.
Once the Kemono games arrived, we are going to invade /jp/ next. We'll return on S2, or 12.2
I can't wait to visit new Friends
It's limited to Japan, where there's always some kind of otaku fad.
To become a brony-phenomenon like My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, several hundred thousands of westerners would have to like Kemono Friends as well.
Which ain't gonna happen without some dubs and songs and lots of targeted merchandise specifically for burger gaijins.
It didn't even rank on Oricon for 3 weeks in a row following it's release despite the threshold being a measly 6.6k. That 150k claim from the distributors was for two volumes, not a single one. Even if it was 100% accurate AND reflective of sales, that would still only be 70k per volume (lower than Bake and Love Live s2).
It doesn't even matter anyway, because distributor claims are widely known to be bullshit and not reflective of actual sale numbers. If we went by distributor claims, SnK sold 1 mil http://yaraon.blog109.fc2.com/blog-entry-28013.html or NNB sold 100k http://yaraon-blog.com/archives/66940
The 200k number of the book is also from distributors, so it's entirely meaningless until every single copy on shelves sell out which hasn't happened.
For me Winter is Akiba's rip but I finished 2 days ago Maid Dragon and is really really good so I can accept it
Eromanga sensei I don't know but doesn't call me, this season is terrible, maybe I give it a opportunity
But 2016 official aoty was Flip Flappers. And best girl Usami.
Because calling it japanese mlp is the only insult you have left, people butthurt about eromanga complain and shitposting about it but their criticism is grounded on reality just overblown. Meanwhile you have nothing but one petty insult it's pathetic.
Look at this guy, at least he have some idea for legit criticism but is just uninformed to know kemono initial print was about 2k copies for it didn't sold well until 100k reprint and is oblivious to the fact it actually did sold out everywhere to point I had to wait for another reprint to get my copy.
It's fundamentally different in that its a show made for adults appealing to nostalgia through adopting a superficially childlish aesthetic that children might also enjoy rather than a show made for children that manchildren have latched onto. If you want something really comparable it would be the male adult fanbase for shows like Precure or Aikatsu.
You are putting way too much value on Oricon numbers as being objective. They don't track every sale in every store. For BD/DVD they cover 23,000+ stores and for Books they only track around 3000. Oricon numbers are always underestimations of the actual sales in all case. That problem is only exacerbated for books where they track in far less stores.
Also just further to this I checked the number of bookstores in Japan and the latest numbers I could find were over 6000 stores and thats only including places that sell books who are members of the bookstore industry group. That means Oricon more than likely tracks less than half of all places in which Kemono Friends could possibly be sold. So their number being significantly lower than reality isn't really surprising.
It is also on its way to break Bakemonogatari record.
I'm not trying to say it isn't selling lots or anything but those are distributor numbers and as such they aren't really comparable to Oricon numbers for the reasons I explained here.
The real problems are:
There is a huge disparity in the number of stores tracked for Books vs BD/DVD and the Oricon numbers for BD/DVD will be underestimated too just like the numbers for Kemono Friends books reported by Oricon.
You can't say "my distributor number is better than X shows Oricon number" while at the same time ignoring that the Kemono Friends Oricon number is only 33k for Vol.1.
When was the last time an anime is still selling by the truckload 2months after its week1 release date? Do note that its week1 sale was only 5k and it has been going up everytime they do a reprint. I doubt that they are even tracking sales from their own kemofure shop.
>You can't say "my distributor number is better than X shows Oricon number" while at the same time ignoring that the Kemono Friends Oricon number is only 33k for Vol.1.
You can because once everything sold out distributor number is more valuable than number given by store tracker like Oricon and three print outs sold out entirely so when distributor say these prints outs were 200k it mean they sold 200k.
It is a much smaller as I pointed out previously but BD/DVD is missing information too. Distributor numbers for those are often 15-20% above the Oricon figure or more in some case.
I'm not arguing with the amount it is sold. I just stated that. Just explaining why its invalid to compare the figures for Kemono Friends either that come from the distributor or Oricon to BD/DVD sales reported by Oricon.
So they have sold 200k and printed 200k yet you can purchase Vol.1-Vol.3 right now with ease?
Well, if you're going to play that way, then just choose between the two numbers. Then, between the two, just decide which one justifies its impact on Japan right now
It's that easy, really.
Pin point accuracy is not needed when its fanbase is just so humongous
I was referencing a specific claim made that Kemono Friends is "on its way to break Bakemonogatari record". That record is established by Oricon BD/DVD rankings. The distributor numbers being used for that claim are completely different to the numbers being used for Bakemonogatari's record.
I'm not disputing the size of Kemono Friends or denigrating it at all just stating that its kind of pretty fucking wonky in all sorts of different ways to try to compare Oricon BD/DVD numbers to Oricon Book numbers or Oricon BD/DVD numbers to Book Distributor Numbers. The datasets and accuracy and even what is being measured is completely different.
I used to be a vocal hater of moe anime and only watched darker and more atmospheric anime, but I think Demi-chan and Maid Dragon might have started to convert me, what the hell is happening to me?
It triggers /a/ and the other side has no argument to throw.
Please stop making sense
I don't really think it's particularly pretentious to be honest. It's just a space adventure with some mysteries set in the far future. If anything, Kado is more "pretentious" than ID-0 in truth. Which does not mean it's bad, but it is certainly more ambitious.
It's funny really. Kemono Friends fans do what other fans of shows do and say they like that show when asked what was their favourite. Suddenly "these are the most cancerous fans on /a/", Kemono Friends fan states it was their AOTS and /a/ shits its collective pants like the responses to >>157680416
On the other hand, if someone states just about any other show was their favourite it gets pretty much nothing as a response.
Seems like the problem is /a/ posters getting angry that some people like something they don't like and cant comprehend rather than Kemono Friends fans being cancerous.
Gabriel dropout was superior meme-show of winter. People (and normies) only watched Dragon Maid for Kanna.
Mention Kemono Friends anywhere outside of the Kemono Friends general and the same kinds of responses are guaranteed. My point stands exactly the same. Point to the other show in this thread that got so many people to reply telling them to fuck off or being quite so aggressively hateful?
Can you die already, OP? Am I still going to see you for years to come?
I know it's the same person who's been doing this throughout the years, and trying to force their garbage moe/ecchi taste on /a/, because nobody else would use that stupid picture format.
>that I found
There's the problem, you.
I haven't been more excited for anything this season than I was for episode 12.1
400k IP boys
And Nico server is not fried tofu yet.
It's shit. The way Dubstep only exists to give you a bass drop, eromanga sensei exist to give you that cute girls feeling. Everything else about it is garbage. It's not aots, it's not aotm, maybe aotw. Inconsistencies, plot holes, Mc doing anything and getting away with it, shit dialog, shit writing in general, a girl named Elf, I could go on, but I'm at work.
I found the most forgotten anime of the year.
Winter is correct. Eromanga isn't even the best at vapid cuteness though, Sakura Quest does that better.
And I think Re: Creators is actually AOTS, albeit largely due to lack of competition.
>the most boring fate clone in existence
Why do you people pretend like Attack on titan s2 isn't objectively superior to everything this season, even though it's the only show everyone on this board is watching?
A lot of the scenes in that show have more animation then the entirety of eromanga sensei
Right, i actually forgotten about that:
I watched the first three Episode, thought that it was all right and that i might pick it up again when its over and watch it all in one go, but i totally have forgotten about it.
And to be honest, thinking back at it, i am not even sure if i should even pick it up again, tho...
Nope. That should be Urara or Kemono Friends, then Frame Arm Girls/Hinako Note/ Sakura Quest. There is nothing good about Oreimo 2.0.
Placing utter garbage and popular normalfag shows in the same sentence is an old trick, buddy.
It was actually the first anime I watched since nominally watching toonami over ten years ago. I watched the whole series, but it was so meh tier that I almost gave up on anime altogether until I watched K-on.
This entire thread
I was for new Rinne and i hope based NHK will deliver season 4
Not even shit-posting, but what do people like about Eromanga?
I can see some aspects that might appeal to the /a/ audience, but the execution is just not that good.
I mean, one of the main selling point is the 'incest', right? But they aren't even related, not even raised for any length of time.
Another point is the lewdness, but aside from these weird pin-up frames its just not that sexy.
And the pacing is weird: Some episodes have what feels like 2 scenes, but then a whole arc is resolved in less then an episode...
Post yfw we're finally entering the 1st Golden Age of 3DCG Japanese Animation.
Bakkaa youre just trying to fit in, you don't really like this show
When not-Kuroneko (who acts like a haughty perfectionist over her generic battle harem shit) waxed about how she fell in love with MC over the writing his werewolf story I literally laughed out loud. Not only is this fucking retarded, but it falls into the age-old trap of *telling* your audience how MC/Elf/not-Kuroneko are such good writers while providing literally no examples of their writing.
