What should go in the spring slot? Eromanga Sensei? Frame Arms Girl? Hinako Note? LWA?
Tsuki ga Kirei.
Or Eromanga if you want to make /v/ mad.
I fixed your shit chart OP.
No need to thank me.
>flopdragonfag so mad from the last thread he made another thread about kemono to falseflag
KEEP THE TEARS COMING
there has never been and never will be any consensus on /a/. my favorite series this season is twin angel for example and I might be the only one who thinks this.
even azumanga isn't official AotY 2002 because tutu was released the same year and that's as close as you'll get to consensus.
stop making these threads. you're autistic and nobody likes you.
>delusions about what anime you enjoyed
Personally, I don't think either Maid Dragon or Eromanga Sensei fit the chart. The main criteria of these shows seems to be that there's no drama, no romance, and NO MALE CHARACTERS, which both Eromanga Sensei and Maid Dragon have plenty of.
Fall 2013 was ridiculously full of things that are still discussed today or at least I remember well looking back at it
>Kill la Kill
>Kyoukai no Katana
>Strike the Blood
>Nagi no Asakura
>Infinite Stratos 2
>White Album 2
>Gundam Build Fighters
Who cares about the ratio, it flat out won fair and square. In fact there were 2 polls total created on /a/, and it was on the top each time.
Kemono Friends is objectively /a/'s Anime of the season. There is nothing to discuss.
No, it proves that KF had the most fans out of all the shows from last season. That does have meaning.
Why do you think an anime would need a majority of votes to be the #1 most favored show from the season? What is the meaningful distinction, in your mind?
I love KF, but I think putting 12.1 as AOTS for spring is unfair.
I haven't watched Eromanga so I can't comment on that, but I think this season is more geared towards shonen.(attack on titan s2, shiki no bahamut s2, boruto,etc)
Damn some of you people are fucking mad at Eromanga.
It's unironically AOTS, deal with it.
Never watched KF, it looked like shit. What's is it about this show that's gotten /a/'s pantsu in a bunch over it?
That's fine, but if you aren't even willing to try to watch what was unanimously agreed to be the most popular anime on /a/ and 2chan last season, then please refrain from commenting in seasonal AOTS threads as if your opinion had any meaning whatsoever.
It got popular because:
>subtle post-apocalypse theme
>nostalgic children cartoon feel, but still retaining an adult tone
>that terrible fucking Photoshop job
>can't even remove backgrounds properly while preserving text properly
>being so triggered by our council's good taste that you've been acting like a 5 year old autist since May 18th
The only answer is FAG
Hinako Note is just not good enough to qualify. Eromanga being a haremshit should be disqualified.
>no male characters
GJ-Bu, NNB, Mikakunin
U wot m8?
It seems /a/'s AOTS will always be a quality yuri CGDCT series if it exists that season, but if it doesn't more variety is allowed.
OP is damage controlling in a fit of autistic screeching because of this. Everyone was laughing at him last night when this was posted.
>my favorite series this season is twin angel for example and I might be the only one who thinks this.
I've been enjoying it too, despite how predictable and -playing-it-safe it is.
Confirmed triggered. I created the entire image from scratch, you retard. There is no "leftover background" or "edited text." It's all new.
Now this is a chart i can get behind. Stay real, Friends.
Anybody with working eyes can compare >>157718852 and >>157720846 while looking at the text of the season names and see that the background was clearly very poorly removed from the original, >>157720846 leaving behind severely aliased text. I'm sorry that you suck at Photoshop, anon.
>most popular shows at the top
Wow, who would've thought. Popularity doesn't correlate to quality, and that's pretty evident with Eromanga sensei dominating everything this season. Kemono friends has no basis for it's popularity beyond memes in the first place.
I wasn't around while it was airing, but I find it hard to believe Locodol was that popular.
>Tsuki ga Kirei
It had a loyal following and fun threads. It was about as popular as Pandora. That "official chart" thing is just an in-joke by like one person and not to be taken seriously, though in general it has pretty good taste in anime.
>I love dicks so much.
5 years old is giving him too much credit. That is a lot of anger in that link.
>waaaaah stop making me look like a shitposter
Sure you can use proxies, but it uses captcha, which means no one can really curve the results that much. Most public proxies dont work with google's recaptcha(flagged for spam), so they'd literally have to purchase a batch of 100+ proxies, then manually vote.
nobody is doing all that shit
>That "official chart" thing is just an in-joke by like one person and not to be taken seriously
Nawwww. Really? You mean to tell me that naming yourself Official /a/ AOTS Council CEO and naming your images Official and Objective AOTS's are examples of being intentionally tongue-in-cheek, and that only a retard would get angry enough at such tongue-in-cheek posting to go on a 9-day shitposting spree in response? No way.
Kememe has the most insecure fanbase I've seen in recent years.
>they'd literally have to purchase a batch of 100+ proxies
Anyone who works in SEO will have access to more non-public proxies than that, and I'm willing to bet there's a lot of SEObros here because that's a work at home job perfect for /a/utists.
You can have fun shitposting this thread but one version has always survived into eternity and at least 60% of /a/ agrees with it. The AOTY one with the green wreathes is even more inevitable. Everyone knows what the criteria for "/a/ AOTS/Y" is, and only very rarely are there multiple contenders.
>funny and surprisingly deep

FlipFlappers won aots last year
2015 winter was Rolling Girls
Maid Dragon is the current frontrunner. I fully expect New Game and Umaru to win the final two AOTS slots and Maid Dragon to win AOTY, but I hope we have a pleasant surprise that changes all of that in the next two seasons, because anything better than Maid Dragon would be really great.
Anything side from KF would be a shitpost. It is right behind gochiusa as far as Nico views go(which is #1 on nico) and trended worldwide, twice.
you'd have be severely delusional to think anything else would take its spot.
>3DCG will never be /a/'s AOTS
Stay salty, sakugafags
These Kyoanifags need to be constantly reminded of the better show.
>actually trying to compare a poorly made CG show for small children to an expertly crafted metaphor for the immigrant experience covering humanistic and social themes such as systematic sexism, family, loneliness, individuality, alienation, accepting and understanding others, adapting to society, appreciating the little moments in life, capturing the shortsightedness and transience of human existence and fitting in with society's expectations
>Anything side from KF would be a shitpost.
KF was my AOTS but we're talking about popularity on /a/ here, not in Japan. Different things.
However I think it still wins on /a/ regardless. Maid Dragon would be Reddit's pick for sure though.
>Eromanga sensei is /a/'s AOTS
>it's a fucking harem
>trying to compare
Nope. I don't have to compare anything. The poll has one job: to show which anime was the most loved by /a/, and it does that just fine. It's an objective measure of /a/'s AOTS and that's all that matters.
I think you didn't watch Maid Dragon. I've been on /a/ long enough to know that 90% of negative posts about any anime are from people who didn't even watch it and don't like its genre.
It's a pseudo harem where cute girls get absolutely BTFO in favor of his soon-to-be-revealed-as-fully-blood-related sister. Basically it's turbo incest with the cutest girl of the season.
It being a harem is not why it is AOTS. Lurk moar.
>I've been on /a/ long enough to know that 90% of negative posts about any anime are from people who didn't even watch it and don't like its genre.
This so much. /a/ is at least 60% moefags, shonenfags and deepfags flinging shit at each other.
>he wrote these
>he thinks himself intelligent
literally just watched ep 1~12 with the fucking director live.
Deepfags are fucking annoying but shounenfags need to fucking go.
That's in every thread, but it's more apparent in KyoAnus threads because that's just how shit their show is.
This is some immense shit taste.
>Umaru side character
I know people bandy about the idea of killing yourself a lot but I implore you to take it seriously this time.
I just realized I'm posting in an IRC thread.
>implying the cabal is against Kyoani
No, the cabal is pro-kyoanus, mate. Making /a/ look like it has awful fucking taste is part of their game.
Just look at the charts. Not a single thing other than simple moe shit. Both on the 4x4 seasonal and the namefags yearly.
>he doesn't appreciate the story of a traumatized young girl falling in love with her long lost blood related emotionally broken brother
Nigga you gay.
OP here. Since this appears to be what we're going with for winter and spring (too bad there aren't more FAG fans), I updated the text outlining to be a little softer around the edges for the special autists in the thread.
I do believe they are newfags.
Well, it was good while it lasted.
Fucking normies ruin everything.
The only thing that matters is that Kemono Friends proves that nobody in Japan or the the West or anywhere else cares about sakugashit.
Story and tone will always matter more than "good animation". Which the Japanese animators aren't even that good anymore either.
I'm just going to post https://boards.fireden.net/a/thread/157718852/#157721250 and https://boards.fireden.net/a/thread/157718852/#157722596 every time you post that fake then. You should have done a good Photoshop job the first time; now you can't take back making yourself look like an idiot.
Garbage with the only redeeming value being the Satania, who couldn't save it.
No one is saying that it wasn't good, just that it wasn't good enough. If KF hadn't aired in the same season, Maid Dragon would easily have been the AOTS.
Oh God, no. If you think this was AOTS, you have no sense of quality.
It was good, but not as good as season 1. Introducing more of the crimson demon family would have pushed it over the top, but sadly, they didn't do that.
In reality, Youjo Senki was the best anime of the winter season, but Kemono Friends wins the best comfy anime, which is what these charts are about.
There's no need to be upset.
>Maid Dragon would easily have been the AOTS
Wrong, it would have been Konosuba S2.
If someone from KyoAni didn't decide to draw a loli with mega thighs, it wouldn't even be relevant or worth talking about.
The tops of the text still look more aliased than the bottoms. You still suck at Photoshop.
An autist was so triggered by >>157720846 that he went on a 9 day shitposting spree and badly Photoshopped a fake version of the image that triggered him, then badly tried to fix it when told his Photoshopping was shit. I guess I can post https://boards.fireden.net/a/search/username/council/page/4/ along with it too just to illustrate all of his 9 day long autistic screeching fit.
Can you follow the thread a little better? Does >>157721145 look like Photoshop to you?
I mean I'm sure you would like to inflate your ego imagining that somebody would spend so much time looking at work you created from painstakingly erasing the background from behind a block of text, but that isn't how I made it.
It was pretty easy to figure out the font and text height, and Pant.NET has a plugin to outline objects. No, I didn't Photoshop anything. I spent all of about 5 minutes making it from scratch.
I still can't figure out what you're saying. Try using pronouns. Tell me who blasted your booty and why it hurts so badly.
And it's almost like it's still a visual medium first and foremost, and if the visuals don't complement the story in any way, then you should just write a fucking book.
>KFaggots don't say good animation doesn't matter
You're all aggressively retarded.
I don't follow. I know you are trying to "rekt" me, but if I can't figure out what you're trying to say, it's hard for me to let my feelings get hurt. So far, it just seems like you are very confused and don't know who you're insulting or why you're insulting them.
It's funny that you used Raphi for this post since intentionally making OP waste time fixing his image without even caring about the image or thread is something Raphi would do.
Art and paneling in manga are important just like you animation and scene composition in anime, you fucking moron. What point are you pretending to make?
Except for the part where
literally said that no one cares about sakuga and story will always be more important. Try to wipe the cat jizz out of your eyes, it's preventing you from being able to read.
The person who made the first one has long stopped posting on /a/. There is no actual "official" chart maker. Anybody can make a chart and if enough people agree with it, then it will get spread around the most frequently.
If you really were an oldfag, you'd know that there have been competing charts many times before in past years.
Kememe Faggots are mentally ill faggots with nothing even resembling taste in anime, and are a plague on this board. If you were all gassed, the world would become a markedly better place.
I don't think KyoAni fans are ever angry when KyoAni's anime put up sales figures indicative of clear profit when combined with a below average budget, as Maid Dragon did. As long as KyoAni's anime profit like Maid Dragon did, they'll be able to keep being the objectively best anime studio.
Is this thread about popular anime like Naruto?
>KyoAnuslickers still this salty about Flop Maid
>Pretending to be smart when you orally don't have a point
Anime has movement and sound. Explain exactly how that gives you an argument and how animation isn't tantamount in an anime. I sure hope you have a good answer and aren't just going to babble like a retard about muh story. The story was shit, too.
Maybe one day you'll watch the show and realize you were wrong. Don't worry. We'll be here for you when you do.
>Say nothing of value
>Can't actually refute the original point
>"I-I made my point"
Other elements in anime existing don't diminish the importance of visuals in any way at all. You literally have no argument for this.
Remind me what you're trying to argue again? Something about the sole measure of an anime's worth being how good it looks? I guess that means that Hyouka was the best anime ever, right? Instead of being a mediocre slice of life story that bored most people so badly that few people even finished it...?
What is the third best anime studio behind KyoAni and Doga Kobo?
What is the second greatest anime of all-time behind K-ON?
>Hyouka was boring and mediocre
Hyouka was the best use of visual metaphors and scene composition to complement a story done in the medium. It's starting to make sense you, you're really fucking stupid and can't follow any sort of layered story telling, and you have no appreciate for the medium itself. That explains why you're stupid enough to like KF.
Silver Link > Kyoanus. You can't refute this.
Shirobako, which was much stronger in its second cour than its first, but began airing in Fall 2014, hence no AOTY awarded on that image.
I kind of agree with this.
Even AtoZ has let me down lately, after showing a good amount of promise early on.
But then again, of course I haven't watched everything this season.
>butthurt kyoanuslicker trying to misrepresent the topic.
What's with asshurt Kemylittle Friends fags pretending as if Maidragon wasn't /a/'s official AOTS last season?
Anybody who thinks Eromanga Sensei isn't the AOTS of spring doesn't belong on /a/.
What Japan likes more is what /a/ also likes. /a/ is after all trying to emulate Nippon-sama.
Since Kemono Friends is the most liked anime there (together with Yuri on Ice), that means that we shall all love Yuri on Ice and Kemono Friends.
Everything else is irrelevant.
I need to start spending time on Futaba. 2ch makes my head hurt.
KF is a Twitter fad that will come and go. It doesn't have even a fraction of the staying power of K-ON or Haruhi.
Just use any fucking free proxy, there are even browser plugins that let you change to a diferent proxy every time you refresh, any autist can keep voting forever if he really wanted to, and Kememe fanbase has the most autistic people of /a/, they're literally the MLPfags of this board.
>KF is a Twitter fad that will come and go.
Probably yes. But what matters is that it will get a second season, games based upon the anime, and more merchandise.
The more important question is then if it will still somehow manage to stay popular enough to actually get a third season.
It's not straightforward, but I'll try. Feel free to screencap this post for future explanations.
From an outsider's perspective, Maid Dragon began the season with probably the most hype and Kemono Friends began the season with the least hype. If you didn't watch either anime, you'd fully have expected Maid Dragon to remain in the top spot, since it was a comfy story done by a top notch animation studio. Kyoto Animation usually does anime right.
To complicate matters, the 3DCG of Kemono Friends scared off a segment of the posting base here, so a lot of people SIMPLY DIDN'T WATCH IT. This created two worlds of experience that only overlapped in one direction. That is, KF watchers also watched MD, but MD watchers didn't always watch KF. Some MD watchers remained completely ignorant of the developments of KF.
As the season wore on, the hype for Maid Dragon started to die down. If you weren't watching, you wouldn't realize why: the story was stale and repetitive from the first episode and it didn't get any better. In the final arc, there was an extremely cringey moment of forced drama with Touru and her dragon self that just highlighted how little substance there was to make an anime about. At the same time, Kemono Friends was solid, delivering new Friends every week and eventually culminating in effective drama and a nail-biting cliffhanger that belied the story's seeming episodic simplicity.
Recall again that there were two separate worlds of experience on /a/ that only interacted in one direction. The MD watchers saw the stale/repetitive nature of their Kyoani show as a positive: it was constant and the quality never dropped. They saw the reactions to the KF finale and, not having any desire to gain first-hand knowledge, interpreted them as juvenile over-reaction to something that couldn't POSSIBLY be good. To this day, most still have not watched KF.
Objectively speaking, there is no comparison. KF blew MD out of the water that season.
The majority of proxies - certainly all free ones - are banned on 4chan, and the majority of the ones that aren't banned directly (pay proxies) are range-banned. You need a 4chan pass to get around a range ban, but you can't change the IP address used with a 4chan pass more frequently than (IIRC) 30 minutes.
>The MD watchers saw the stale/repetitive nature of their Kyoani show as a positive: it was constant and the quality never dropped. They saw the reactions to the KF finale and, not having any desire to gain first-hand knowledge, interpreted them as juvenile over-reaction to something that couldn't POSSIBLY be good. To this day, most still have not watched KF.
As proof of this: >>157724381
>KF is a Twitter fad that will come and go.
-referring to the reaction of the fan base, not the content of the anime, since he hasn't watched it.
>maidragon, gab, youjo, konosuba 2 combined
I think we can all agree that,
A: This is likely an IRC thread;
B: IRC is certainly autistic enough to spam votes with phones, and a few of them doing it at the same time would easily overwhelm a poll.
>It's very easy to bypass Strawpoll IP check.
Yes, we know. That's not the point here.
The point is the captcha which you have to click every single time. Not even an extreme autist is going to do that +50 times,otherwise KF would be at +700 votes.
God damn do people not read.
So, let me get this straight. Your argument ACTUALLY rests on, "/a/ wouldn't be that autistic."
Wow. You must be new here.
Where would one even find this mystical IRC? I've been browsing Kemono threads since EP2 and I never once even saw a mention of such a thing.
I really want to know what some of these people are smoking
>Fuck, I don't know what to argue about anymore or what point I'm even pretending to make
>I'll just say that the only people who don't like it haven't watched it!
>when you make a thread about kemono, eromanga and maid dragon
They can just say because their fans arent as autistic and are pure even though they had +6 threads about Kanna up while it was airing, probably by the same 3-4 people.
If anything, KyoAnus shitters would be the one doing the rigging.
But I like K-ON and Kemono Friends.
And MaiDragon too, for that matter.
>Flopdragonfags are mad because their shit show isn't popular on /a/
They'd have to prove it was done.
>wahh! my favorite animu didn't win so it must have been rigged!
You can keep using the above argument as much as you like though. Whatever helps you sleep.
Hypothetically speaking, let's say Donald Trump won an election where the votes were tabulated using a system already previously known by the general public to be easily riggable with proxies, and that the general public already knew how to do so before the election. Such an election would clearly not be legitimate or credible regardless of proof of rigging.
Less people loved Maid Dragon than loved Kemono Friends. It's a verifiable fact.
Let me put it this way: When Touru disappeared from the world in Maid Dragon, was anybody, and I mean ANYBODY, even the most diehard fans of that particular anime, sad?
Compare that to the reaction to Kaban-chan's possible death/disappearance, which sparked worldwide shock, concern, outrage and sadness. You just don't get internationally trending twitter hashtags for plot developments in mediocre anime, like Maid Dragon.
If you don't understand what I'm talking about, then that just means that you haven't watched Kemono Friends, like I said earlier.
>Let me put it this way: When Touru disappeared from the world in Maid Dragon, was anybody, and I mean ANYBODY, even the most diehard fans of that particular anime, sad?
I don't think this is comparable since Maidragon is an adaptation, we knew what was going to happen.
>When Touru disappeared from the world in Maid Dragon, was anybody, and I mean ANYBODY, even the most diehard fans of that particular anime, sad?
You're not even trying anymore. Some people already knew she'd return because they read the source material and the others knew she'd return BECAUSE THE FUCKING TITLE OF THE ANIME IS ABOUT HER. Tooru returning was as obvious as Kirino or Taiga winning.
>Are people watching a manga adaptation as emotionally unstable as the manchildren watching KF?
No, but the scene of Kobayashi reacting to Torhu being home blew everything from KF out of the water.
this scene was the best one of the season
It's interesting that there's many pro-KyoAni posters making entirely positive-vibed, seemingly heartfelt posts solely about KyoAni anime whereas all the pro-KF posts seem to be combative and directly comparing it to Maid Dragon. Really activates the almonds.
>there's many pro-KyoAni posters making entirely positive-vibed, seemingly heartfelt posts
Cool, I can make shit up too.
It's interesting that there's many pro-KF posters making entirely positive-vibed, seemingly heartfelt posts solely about Kemono Friends anime whereas all the pro-KyoAni posts seem to be combative and directly comparing it to Kemono Friends. Really activates the almonds.
>Amagi and even PW were better than Hibike.
They really weren't.
It's far from a perfect show, but from emotional impact to even animation, by almost every scale, Hibike was superior.
Tohru was my favorite character. I love how animated she was; she was really expressive with her hands like an actual extrovert. Her expressiveness made her a reaction image machine. I'm not attracted to lolis. Kanna was cute, but Renge Miyauchi was a better, similar character.
So we've reached the verdict (respectfully) that Kemono Friends was AOTS of the winter, right? It must be, it's gotta be. It is likr a phenomenon once in a decade.
I mean, it got a penguin to convert to 2D. Can't beat that. Sometimes we got to admit defeat. That's the way of life.
It seems to have lost its charm since the days of the OVA.
It's very good, but doesn't fit the prerequisites for /a/'s objective taste.
Melodrama is only appealing to teenage girls and faggots, and the art and and animation of both of the other shows destroyed it. Decent character animation and close up shots of yuribait aren't anything to write home about.
>Japan likes it so it must be good
>I like the fan art so obviously the show is amazing
>It's not about animation, Kemono Friends has great writing
>Also, Frame Arms Girl is this season aots
As a Kemono Friends fan, I really did enjoy Maid Dragon up until around episode 6 or 7. It started becoming increasingly stale though, especially with the whole Riko and Kanna relationship. It felt forced and overdone. I still finished it, but the ending felt really weak.
I was browsing the Maid dragon threads during that time and everyone generally agreed the anime's ending wasn't good.
Amagi had a male protagonist, so it was a no-go for the chart. I'm still not 100% convinced on Eromanga Sensei, but am thinking about making an exception because of how many fetish boxes it is checking so far and how fun it is to watch.
PW had fanservice, and ignoring the shitty story resolution some of the standalones had fantastic cuts, especially the rabbit and mansion episodes. Enigma's introduction was really good as well. That's far better watching a bunch of bitchy high school girls.
If you were the real me you'd say "We're not still 100% convinced," not "I'm."
This is my waifu, say something nice about her.
We you also browsing the Kemono Friends threads since day one? You know, when everyone hated it and was laughing at and dropping it before all the 2chan memes and bandwagonning began.
>my quality but no substance show is better than you.
Is the pretty colors enjoyable to you little jimmy?
I was browsing it around Episode 2, and my first post was "is my taste in anime becoming shit for enjoying this?". You can check the archives.
I kept watching it though because I was so curious as to where the hell the anime was going and ended up enjoying every bit. The whole "nips going crazy over it" didnt even happen until around ep 4 or 5, at which point it was already picking up on /a/ anyway.
I remember around the first week of April comparing KF threads to Maidragon threads and the difference was so jarring. The MD threads were depressing compared to KF's celebratory ones. I don't know how anyone can unironically say that's /a/'s AOTS.
I knew it was you because what you just posted is exactly what you always do: you mention yourself to give yourself notoriety all the time, and I know you were spamming threads using >>157720878 's charts last year. Again, be more careful about your posting patterns if you don't want to be called out.
