>What I'm watching next season.
Hopefully it will be better than this season was.
What are you watching?
The better question is why are you? 50% of /a/ is shonen or long running games/kids anime. Seasonal shit barely exist on the board, just this season only eromanga and re:creators got anything more then a 100-200 post thread on release day.
That is my point, on airing days some shows can get a full thread. But I can almost always find a one piece/dragon ball/yu-gi-oh/snk/bnha/HxH/Naruto/jojo thread. I can find kemono/re-zero threads. I can find 2-3 draw threads or a buyfag thread.
But seasonal shows that aren't in the top 5? Barely get 1 or 2 threads a week. Usually on the verge of death or getting a bump or two every 10 minutes.
Hajimete no Gal
Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita
No Game No Life: Zero
I feel like they would have to go out of there way to make this season anything less than enjoyable... it won't be 2006, but at the very least I could just reread the source material.
>Most of its garbage
So you watch almost all of the airing shows? I highly doubt that. Anybody who actually tries to watch a full ~30+ shows a season realizes that a lot of the best shows are not the shows they thought would be good.
A lot of shows have a strong start and fall apart by episode 6-7. Some shows are absolutely awful in till episode 10 where you realize the show grew on you and it becomes a favorite. If you aren't trying everything then you are either
A) letting other people dictate what is "good" or
B) Judging a show completely off of its looks/summary
You can't know if a show will be good with one episode. You might as well just watch the preview. But it's a waste of time to watch the 4-5 episodes necessary to figure it out for every fucking show.
I've seen enough shows to figure out which ones will be good. The few times I've been wrong, I've been able to figure it out from /a/ threads.
Basically, you guys trying out all the shows are the real casuals
>waste of time to figure out if a show is good or not,
Watching anime as a whole is a waste of time. Why even bother if you just drop anything that you "sense" will be shit. I see so many shows that are trash but I accept that the show is trash and enjoy it for what it is. Sometimes it turns out way better then expected.
Also the idea that you can use /a/ as a gauge for what is good that you missed out on is retarded. /a/ barely discusses anything besides the top 10 of a season. Just this season there were 24/7 eromanga threads yet nearly 0 sakurada threads. 24/7 Re:creator threads but only a couple Machiavellianism threads.
this season is shaping up to be the worst season in years, so much that everything you're anticipating in your picture is guaranteed to either be shit or completely unmemorable, overrated trash.
>judging a show completely off of its looks is bad! muh three episode rule!!1
except in the case where you were to have a brain, whereas this is then a perfectly sensible way to judge a series.
>three episode rule
I'm literally advocating watching ~30+ shows to completion/ a season. Not to some arbitrary 3 episode rule. The "I have a brain" excuse is retarded. What your able to tell something will be garbage on episode 4 when it had such a promising first 3 episodes? What about the show that sucked ass in till episode 5 but then all of sudden it got really interesting on 6.
The only valid justification for not watching a lot of anime is either not liking anime, being to busy for anime or being someone who cherry picks from a bunch of hobbies without devoting themselves to any of them.
let me apologize for everyone that doesn't have the ability to watch 30 series a season, of which at least 2/3 are guaranteed to be utter shit. regardless, your argument is inane, as very few series manage to have those "promising first three episodes".
coupled with that, the argument of "a show that sucked ass until episode 6" is beyond fucking retarded. if a show wastes two and a half hours to entertain me, then it's shit. why the fuck would something like that be good? my point wasn't even that you have to watch one episode to tell if it's shit; i'm saying that in most cases, you can just take a look at the cover and determine that it's fucking shit. if that's not enough, take a look at a PV. by then, 99% of the time, it should be quite clear if the show is watchable or not.
It's not that she doesn't like anime, but she hates watching subtitles, and I refuse to listen to crappy dubs. Plus she likes more slice of life type stuff and I like darker anime. And she's definitely a casual, where I used to watch like a full season in a night every night. But me and the wife do everything together, so if she doesn't watch I don't watch. Makes me a little sad, but other than that she's amazing.
It has nothing to do with the hidden quality of the show. Theyre just pushing this ridiculous notion that you can somehow be better at watching anime than someone else simply by consuming more shows a season so that they can feel better about what ever uneventful life allows them to waste so much time.
I get enjoying a little bit of escapism. I understand really enjoying the medium. But being elitist about it is the stupidest shit and really doesn't belong here.
That rule exists because after three episodes, it should be clear whether or not you have interest in a show - obviously, your interest might die off even before that, or maybe much later, so it's merely a suggestion. In any case, it exists so people feel encouraged to try shows out and give them a chance at catching their attention, it doesn't have anything to do with the objective quality of a show because anime is nothing more than entertainment -- if you aren't feeling entertained by a show, then please drop it and move on.
Sticking to a show regardless of how much you like it is almost as dumb of an idea as disregarding everything because "the industry is dying".
>doesn't have the ability to watch 30 series a season
Watching 30 shows in a season averages to a little bit over 4 episodes per day, which means slightly under 2 hours per day spent on your hobby. Are you really unable to dedicate that tiny amount of time to something you like?
>states that more than 66% of every season is shit that isn't even worth trying out
>dares to call the other anon's argument "inane"
Ah yeah. You just don't like anime.
I liked this season. The shows harder to complete were Oratoria and Sin:Nanatsu no Taizai.
Had fun with the rest, especially CWP, FAGs, Twin Angel Break,
eromanga, Natsume and finally Bahamut, that took a while but its fun again.
Next season seems hard though.
Not hard, I do the same, you can spare 2h a day with a bit more or less on weekends and its pretty easy.
An episode of 25min means 2 shows per hour, or 4 per day, that translates to almost 30 shows a week.
>the typical current year /a/non legitimately thinks the board is for generals
Kill me now.
The upcoming season looks supremely trash. I had my hopes up after this season.
There's a whole bunch of maybes:
Symphogear (Which I must be the most reluctant fan of around by now given that I've been less enthusiastic about every season since S1)
Isekai Shokudou (Because I have no idea what the fuck it's meant to be so it might be good)
THE REFLECTION (Anime superhero shows have been consistently decent in the past, mite b cool even if it is DEEN)
Knights & Magic (Anything with mecha automatically earns a 3 episode test from me, otherwise I'm not expecting much).
Honestly the only thing I actually have high hopes for is Made In Abyss.
Spending 2 hours every single day on currently airing anime is pretty hard actually, especially if you also read VNs/Manga/books, play vidya, work on your backlog or study something. Not to mention you might miss one of the days and in that case you'll have to spend 4/6/8/etc hours to catch up.
Then you need to increase your level.
There's also lots of weekends with nothing to do that you can watch 10h worth of episodes with no problem, which gives leeway for the next week.
If you work you should not have problems, if you study you might, but that's the reason backlog exists.
I mean, I understand that people cant be bothered to watch all the shit shows themselves but instead just pick up the stuff that is successful, but watching 35 shows a season requires around 14 hours a week and thats assuming you dont drop anything. I thats an insane amount of time to drop on your hobby then you might wanna rethink your life choice or stop letting your employer treat you like a slave. If youre a student its almost impossible to not have at least 3 times that much freetime. Unless youre one of those people who claims to study 20 hours a day for some completety wicked reason (while in reality its more like 5, with 4chan, netflix, some girlfriend and 10hrs of sleep filling the hours that are "not freetime"). Always laughable reading all these Americans claim how they have no freetime, when in reality they are just shit at managing their time or cant be bothered to commit.
>just pick up the stuff that is successful,
>I thats an insane amount of time to drop on your hobby
Your pleb is showing. Not a single show outside GBF and Cinderlla Girls was successful this season.
>(while in reality its more like 5, with 4chan, netflix, some girlfriend and 10hrs of sleep filling the hours that are "not freetime").
Fucking normalfags that can't even manage their time properly, I fucking swear.
If you're not some newfag that watched less than 400 anime, I doubt you can watch every single show and enjoy it. There's bound to be a bunch of anime that you watch simply because you "have to" not because you actually like them.

That's not insane compared to people who read one or two books every week, watch multiple movies and TV shows, or spend hours every day playing video games.
Newfags can't even watch 3 shows a season, they cherrypick 2 (usually shows that already have a fanbase like Fate) spam that its AOTS and feel good with themselves.
Nobody is paying anons here to watch anime, if they watch its obviously because they like it. Sure some might lie, but some might also be telling the truth, so nothing changes.
Because some people can't do it, doesn't mean nobody can.
>Your pleb is showing. Not a single show outside GBF and Cinderlla Girls was successful this season.
Popular then, you know what I mean you fucking retard. They wait for people to rate shit on MAL and then pick it up which is why shows like Tsuki ga Kirei had good threads until e4 and afterwards all the NTR loving normalfags streamed into the show and its respective threads and ruined them. Its the same shit every season.
Thats whats most of them usually will blow their time on. They claim to have no freetime whatsoever and then you ask them what their day looks like. Its either those things or the claim that they study 20hrs a day.
It should be obvious that I never claimed for it to be insane. The "I" was supposed to be an "If", should be clear from the context. My entire post is about how 14hrs a wek arent a lot to spend on your hobby.
>watching less than 20 shows a season
lurk more retards
Yea but that people do something they like. There is absolutely no way that someone enjoys all the anime in a season, or are you implying that every anime is good and fun to watch?
That's less time then almost any other hobby out there.
You have people that play shit like League of Legends a minimum 4 hours a day everyday, a single series episode on netflix is usually 45 minutes (2 anime episodes) and people don't watch a single one a day, people that watch TV from 6pm to 9pm are speding 3 hours a day on it, etc etc.
14h a week watching anime is less time than what you spend shitposting on your cross 4chan boards.
No one talks about "watching every single show", however watching every single first or first few episodes is very normal. I know most of the non-original stuff adapted since already read source material mostly, but i still check pretty much everything despite knowing what to expect.
In most cases youll see if the show is for you after watching first episode - and decide if give it few more.
I usually start watching everything, most up to ep 3 or so, and then during season sloaly cut down to 5-6 shows i actually care. Sometimes even less.
>or are you implying that every anime is good and fun to watch?
They must enjoy it to some extent if they can dig watching all of it for so long.
I don't understand them but I don't understand people who watch reality shows or twitch video game streamers for hours either.
But watching anime for 2 hours a day doesn't seem big to me. Just recently I've binge-watched the entirety of SZS in less than a week, while going to work too.
Youre completely fucking high if you think that people arent just watching stuff to complain about it. Thats basically what most people did this season. They watched eromanga to complain about incest, tsuki ga kirei to complain about it being boring, rokudenashi to complain about it being a shit adaption etc.
I'll try these:
Jikan no Shihaisha
Knight's & Magic
Made in Abyss
And hope something turns out good enough to spend my fujobucks on.
Yes, I do, and there are always some faggots telling everyone that they "glad the show is over" or that "they can't wait till this shit is over". Some people here have always forced themselves to finish certain shows for the sake of completion, not because they actually like those shows. It's a common knowledge.
>There is absolutely no way that someone enjoys all the anime in a season, or are you implying that every anime is good and fun to watch?
Not everyone is the same. I can't understand how some people love to play games for hours and hours amd we have those streamers that do some 24h-no sleep gameplays or something like that.
I mean, people here might now watch literally every show, but you can be sure that there will be some that can watch 30+ shows with no problem and like it.
Then you're retarded, because that's some stupid logic and you might be losing some hidden gems or even something new that you can end up personally liking, like a new genre for exemple.
>implying shitposters actually watch
They only shit the threads and shitpost, we had thia diacussion already when the triple battle school harem, Asterisk x Stella x Anti-Magic, happened.
If people start hating the series, they'll jist drop it, shitpost is shitpost and its unrelated.
>But watching anime for 2 hours a day doesn't seem big to me
Not him, but of course it doesn't untill you actually try it. Systematically spending 2 hours every single day for a whole year isn't as easy as it seems, especially if you're not new to anime.
i queue up a playlist before i go to sleep and if i don't finish it i watch it while eating or throughout the next day and do the same thing again every night. the only problem is sometimes you binge watch backlog shows and get a little bit backlogged on current airing shows, but you catch up quickly anyway.
Do you think all people who finished Glasslip actually liked it? Or Divine Gate? Or Chaos Dragon? The list could go on and on. And as the other anon said, people sometimes finish the show so they could complain about it.
It's literally just 2 hours a day, its pretty damn easy, unless you have to spend time on something else that is as worthless, but you value more, like my normie friends that only watched Jojo and say that they don't have time to watch more anime, but have to get gold or something on league of legends and play it for hours and hours like its any important.
If you don't have enough time to watch anime, then shitpost less on 4chan, that'll give you an extra 1 episode a day minimum, I'd bet.
if anything, the bigger problem is that people are too easily distracted so they can't commit to following all shows every single day.
I spend 8 to 10 hours a day easily glued to my computer, but most of the time I waste it watching youtube shit, or lurking and posting in here.
So out of those 560-640 shows, can you say that you like every single one of them and can rewatch it easily?
You arw giving shitposters too much credit.
Someone can finish a series and have a negative opinion at the end, but at least they bothered enough to complete, so it had something they liked. Someone that watches a series only to complain, are probably not even watching, because they couldn't be lesa bothered to do so, and just read comments on social medias and parrots them away, like the exemple someonw gave here about eromanga-sensei.
Where did I say that? I almost never rewatch shows unless I really like them or the BDs are a way better experience. If they are censored during TV airing I'll wait for the BDs. There is something redeemable about any series and even objectively shit anime can be fun shows to watch or have good characters.
>New Game S2
>That Stan Lee Reflection thing, might look into it if it's well received
I'd watch Made in Abyss and Kakegurui but I already read the manga for both so I couldn't be arsed.
Ok lets just assume youre right, which you arent, why would that be relevant to me? If they polute the threads with their garbage then it doesn't matter whether or not they actually watch the show. As posters they look like viewers to me. Your arbitrary assumption that people dont finish shit they dislike is retarded. I usually drop like 90% of seasonal trash and I stil finished rokudenashi and am watching recreators, and I dont even know why myself. Many people finish stuff because they are autistic about completion. Some people on fucking MAL etc have like 5 shows dropped and watched like 1000 I total. Dont ask me how they do it, but they at least claim toi have done so. I sure as hell wouldn't be able to do the same, but some people simply finish shows no matter how much they dislike them.
>Liking every anime each srason is not possible
Why not? You don't have to be in love with an anime to "like" it.
Vast majority of anime content is fine if you're not pretentious about what you watch.
>Someone that watches a series only to complain, are probably not even watching
>so it had something they liked
That's wrong. I finished Qualidea Code and I hated every single minute of it past the episode 3-4. It took me an hour to finish a single episode becuase I was pausing constantly. Are you going to say that I "lie" to myself?
Also, watch what you type you retarded mongoloid.
TO ANSWER ALL YOU AUTISTS IN HERE WHO WONDER WHY SOMEONE WOULD FINISH A SHOW THEY DISLIKE: It's very often because you hope that its gonna redeem itself in the longrun. However, as soon as youre 6+ episodes in your past the midway point anyway so you decide to finish it. You dont drop something at ep10/12. At that point, even if you end up disliking the show, you just finish it.
>I watch garbage hoping it'll stop being garbage
If you have that much time and have seen everything else worth seeing, shouldn't you be investing it in a hobby you'd actually enjoy?
>You dont drop something at ep10/12. At that point, even if you end up disliking the show, you just finish it.
That only applies if you're some fag who cares about completion rather than enjoyment.
Implying Fall isn't going the be the best season in years.
Why does disliking seasonal shit mean that you dont enjoy anime as a whole? Besides, most other hobbies cost money and require active involvement. Should be self-explanatory why most dont just switch.
I've dropped shows 10/12 ep in. Because they went to shit and I didn't care for it anymore. It's all about entertainment. Don't try to make watching anime some kind of an obligatory job or something.
>Liking every anime each srason is not possible
Why the double standards? It's not possible to like every league of legends match too, yet they're not dropping it like.
Every show can have something redeemable that can make you like it. It won't become your personal favorite every time, but you won't hate it either.
I dont even force myself to finish stuff, I simply tried to explain why most people do. But no, if a show is shit or mediocre I wont watch the sequels. There has only been one show I ever did that for which was Aldnoah Zero. And well, I mean technically speaking, Gundam shows, but those are all sequels of eachother, at least to some extent. More often than not I am mad for even watching sequels in the first place. I still remember enjoying the steaming pile of shit that was Date a Live but then hated the second season.
I'm sorry this still doesn't make sense to me. If you don't like something, you're only wasting your time continuing. If you didn't like something for the first 8 episodes, why would a couple good episodes make the previous 8 episodes worth it?
And I'm surprised you're calling people autists for not understand why someone would continue to subject themselves into watching something they dislike. Honestly, think about that and how contradictory you sound.
>As posters they look like viewers to me.
Your personal opinion is as arbitrary as mine.
If people got to at least half of the series without dropping it, it obviously has something they like or liked, even after that, if they don't drop it, it's because they still have hope it might get better because they liked it at some point.
No one will 0-100% a series out of nothing but hate and spite.
The point is that these people are still pollution the thread. Your initial claim was that people who join seasonal threads and discuss the show at hand tend to like it, otherwise they wouldn't bother. Now to me its irrelevant if its a shitposter or a viewer, the person kills the thread because he dislikes the show. Theres no difference between him having stopped 6 episodes in or having finished the show. Thats why the only time to truly enjoy threads on this board is from ep1-4, after that the word spreads and people flood your threads with shit. Its the same cycle every season and has been like that for years.
>No one will 0-100% a series out of nothing but hate and spite
I do this all the time, what do you mean? I finished Taboo Tattoo and Black Bullet? or whatever their names were a few seasons ago and they were fucking terrible. Sometimes you watch a show hoping it will get better and it just never does. Denpa Kyoushi was not a good show, objectively QUALITY, and the idol arc was awful but I still enjoyed that show.
>14 definites, 2 leftovers, and god knows how much I'll pick up mid-season
I don't know how I'm going to keep up with it all, but I'll do my best.
Every time I look at the Fall chart I get excited.
>No one will 0-100% a series out of nothing but hate and spite
That's not true at all. I watch airing stuff that I know I'll hate and do indeed end up hating pretty frequently just to be on top of what's currently popular, so that I have an educated opinion on stuff.
It's obviously so that I can insult people better; I'm not sure what's reddit about that.
i kinda get it but it still seems pointless to watch something you dont like just to insult people who like it
i think insulting people without having seen the show yourself must be even more triggering for them
Shows I know I won't drop
Shows I probably won't drop
Knight's & Magic
Made in Abyss
Hina Logi: From Luck & Logic
Shoukoku no Altair
I'll give the rest at least one episode, probably will end up watching 10-15 shows like usual.
It's not that I have no standards; rather, after a bunch of years of watching anime, I've started to be more interested in the medium in a general sense rather than just watching shows I think will be good for my own personal enjoyment. That's why I will generally pick up popular stuff, even if I know I'll dislike it, in order to better know what's going on in the wider anime community, both western and JP.
You can tip your fedora to that, if you want.
I'm not the faggot using asterisks and shitty memes. I guess I just don't approach it as seriously as you do.
527 anime entries on mal = 167 days of watch time

>Thats why the only time to truly enjoy threads on this board is from ep1-4,
The opposite, the threads get better as the season goes, because the shitposters that flood the threads early season usually give up mid-season.
That's just for some sense of superiority as a confirmation bias so you can pretend you have some "superior taste" when talking to other anons.
Your hobby is not animes, but discussing shit you watch with others (and pretending you are better then them).
Or in other words, you are not watching out of interest or trying to find something interesting or that you might like, you are only watching looking for anything you redeem a bad part to complain about it.
Only 2 stuff (a shorts and a movie) on my list, the rest is tbd.

Wrong because threads for niche shows have usually more movement early season, so there's more threads popping up. Mid to end season threads get empty-er what invites less shitposters.
Kyoushi Raine or Twin Angel Break, hell even FAGs threads had way less shitpost by the end of the season, yet Re:Creators and Eromanga still have quite a dose of shitpost on their daily threads.
