We can all agree on this.
Get rid of New Game!! and replace it with Made in Abyss or something. Then, yes.
>so insecure about the KF version long ago that he needed to make a thread about it forcing his own version
Is this the right attitude for an "official council"? CEO? I wouldn't even let you manage a lemonade stand.
Damn, I really hate this nigga. He is some kind of neet autistic weeb with an overwhelming shit taste baiting for (You) through his life just to have some kind of interaction and stimulus.
That one was painfully obvious. I wonder which one will be aoty.
winter -- KF
spring -- KF 12.1
summer -- Made in Abyss
I know that this is an ancient /a/ meme, but seriously though Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid was a legit excellent show. But it went against Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu so tough shit.
Eromanga-sensei is haremshit, doesn't fit the meme.
I wasn't suggesting anything. I was only shilling my favourite show of the season and objectively the best show of the year so far. I mean, I know how this meme works, I know that SGRS was disqualified a priori.
My only remark is that Eromanga should not be on that list.
I really liked both. Well personally I liked Kemono Friends more but I think Maid Dragon fits the list more.
Reasonable idea. Hinako was pretty bad and I didn't even finish FAG.
>[Myrriad Colors Phantom Worlds internally]
I know you're just saying that to entice some studio war BS. KyoAni is either hit or miss for me (generally miss) but Dragon Maid had great production value and had a soul. Stuff like Amagi Brilliant Park pales in comparison.
>SGRS is fujoshit, liking it disqualifies you to post on /a/.
Well, fuck me, I'm turning my gun and my /a/ badge by the end of the day. But seriously, anon, on the off chance that you are being 100% unironic here, give that show a chance. If you like clever foreshadowing and you like anime that feels undeniably human, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu is the show for you.
>Urara not Winter AotS
Where did it all go so wrong?
>We are NOT fucking facebook or whatever
I have no idea what facebook or whatever says about maid dragon but facebook or whatever has no impact on this. /a/ is /a/.
>Maid Dragon is agreed upon being shit almost universally by /a/
Right, you don't even browse /a/. Go back to facebook or whatever, you belong there.
>people are still in denial over /a/'s AOTY 2016
If "it didn't make my dick hard" is all you remember Maid Dragon by then you're missing the forest for the trees and failing to recognize it as a brilliant, superbly-animated, poignant 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.
Whoops, wrong pic
That would be the moefag AotS. Dragon Maid is one of the best this year, but Eromanga and Noogies are both just mostly pointless cutesy crap with great art styles.
Bahumat is Spring. Summer is still open because you can't decide on a season's best until the season is over, you silly goose.
Fuck off talking like a real reddit tier normalfag.
It was an adaptation of a fucking ecchi, with extra shotacon and big boob focus, and removed loli lewdness, so yeah, no, it single handedly fucks up that chart, not to mention /a/ has an actual anime of the season for Winter, and it's not Maid Dragon.
Incessantly claiming something is shit because it's popular and known to a wider audience than 4chan is where boards like /tv/ come from.
Flip Floppers had the most unique posters in the threads, had the fastest moving threads other than YoI, and won the closest thing we have to an honest poll for /a/'s AOTY. Yeah, >883, but there's no denying that it was outrageously popular here.
>flip floppers was really mediocre outside the animation sadly
Except it was not? Flip Flappers was a great ride. Has a shit ending, but everything made sense in the context of the story being told.
I keep seeing you post that meme opinion and it is triggering me to high heaven. Consider me baited.
Yes, yes, yes.
Fuck, I can't tell on how many layers of Pure Illusion you're on right now. The fact of the matter is that the ending might have been the worst part about FF because it was predictable. But the show made you care so much for these dorks that a
badending would've just soured everyone's mood. So as "vanilla" as it was, it was still a treat of a show that tidied things up nicely by the end.
Also, not that many series will make you want to learn what "hyperart Thomasson" is. Just a great, great show.
>Maid Dragon AOTS
This is accurate.
I haven't started summer anime yet.
Which casual filter? The one that didn't push Flip Flappers out of first place, or the one that left less than ten anons and made Rakugo the winner? Because I don't see Rakugo on OP's chart.
>posting unironic chart on an ironic chart thread
Eh, didn't care too much for it. I know it's kinda cheating, but switch it for Little Witch Academia and you're gold, anon.
The Eromanga meme has gone too far, Please stop before people believe it.
>Rakugo is casual
Is this what we call "good" now/a/days?
It kinda did, anon, with the wedding dresses and all. Also, yuri undertones >>> full blown lesbfest. Their relation was very implicitly explicit by the end, no need for a kiss when the whole show is about the relationship between these two characters.
Try a little harder with your reading comprehension, anon. Rakugo wasn't casual. It's what's left when you define 95% of the vote as "casual" and throw them out. But you never see these people argue that Rakugo was the AOTY. It's always Dragon Maid. Strange, isn't it?
Sorry anon, I get a bit defensive when
I see people shitpost about Rakugo, it was one of those shows that just spoke to me. I know where the ride was going the whole time and I was never bored. It is also a series that doesn't lend itself well to memery so it goes largely unnoticed by /a/. So please disregard my little quip there.
I suck cocks.
Anon, the purpose of these threads for years now has been to make an ironic CGDCT (usually with yuri undertones) chart, hence the objective™ and official™ stamp. Dragon Maid was quite objectively a great show will stellar directing
albeit still being an objectively inferior show to Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.
Disregarding the fact that these charts fit into ironic shitposting category, can we ponder for a moment what we genuinely thought the AOTS's for this year were so far?
Dragon Maid was great, but it's hard to make a comparison with a seinen show like Rakugo.
The season had some other pretty good shows like Demi-chan, Youjo Senki and ACCA-13.
As for Spring, LWA didn't live up to the lofty expectations in the end. Eromanga is nice but in the end it's a formulaic romcom, been there done that.
Uchouten Kazoku S2 was one of the best things I've watched in a while though, but for some reason continuations don't seem to be candidates for AOTS designation.
I actually love this fujoshit shitpost because the author made a bunch of bona fide fujoshit before SGRS so it's grade 8 bait. But to my fellow homophobes out there, an assurance: you have nothing to fear from this show.
In fact, if you have ever buried someone that is very close to you, I highly recommend this shouwa.
I don't like the idea behind these charts because sometimes I genuinely like some of the "ironic" choices that are included in them. I think New Game is an excellent SoL comedy for example.
I genuinely think OP's image accurately reflects the AOTS's and I genuinely think >>159665804 consists of mostly good anime and is not an attempt to be ironic. /a/ has always been a moe board.
Symphogear is summer's AOTS and there's nothing you can do about it.
Hopefully it goes the way of Teekyuu. Season 5 is already planned.
they keep making it because it keeps printing money
Princess Principal is better than New Game
I'm in complete agreement in regards with Rakugo. I said this numerous times before: it felt genuinely human to me.
>The season had some other pretty good shows like Demi-chan, Youjo Senki and ACCA-13.
ACCA-13 was such as missed opportunity, though. It has genuine political intrigue and did a great job showing how much of a calm before the storm all of that situation they were in was. Too bad for the horrible pacing, it really did ruin the show.
>As for Spring, LWA didn't live up to the lofty expectations in the end.
I agree and I will say this: hype made LWA and hype broke LWA. If you were not sucking up to Trigger or were righteously disgusted by all the fellating going on, LWA was a pretty nice and comfy show that could just as easily make the chart as Dragon Maid.
>Eromanga is nice but in the end it's a formulaic romcom, been there done that.
Eh, Eromanga was okay. Nothing of note, though.
>I don't like the idea behind these charts because sometimes I genuinely like some of the "ironic" choices that are included in them.
I'm sorry, anon, I was not saying that these are bad picks by any means. And they too sometimes overlap with my own picks. What I meant to convey on the post was the criteria by which these shows are awarded. Even if they are good shows, they're only listed on the /a/'s™ official™ AOTS™/AOTY™ chart™ for shitposting purposes. It has been so for the longest time.
It's literally about gay little girls murdering het men
Yeah here's /a/'s "genuine" AOTS (not yours or the chart's) from winter.
Spring was Eromanga and Summer will be New Game, Symphogear, or Made in Abyss.
>literally who anime
>becomes huge Japanese meme
>/a/ suddenly loves it
/a/ is a terrible meme factory in all honesty.
>animation literally worse than JK Meshi
No. OK, let's say we're evaluating anime on several criteria, such as writing, characters, animation quality, etc., giving all the criteria 1-10 scores then saying the anime with the highest average score is the best. Kemono Friends, without a doubt, gets a 1 for animation quality. This makes it awfully difficult for one to believe it was actually the best overall anime of the season. That 1 is going to seriously fuck the mean of all the criteria scores. I haven't even gone into the overly simplistic, one-note characters yet, either.
>/a/ has always been a moe board.
For every moefag, there always was a manimefag. The fact that /a/ has gone full post-ironic doesn't change this fact.
>I think the charts are clearly meant to trigger the anti-moe normie crowd
Not just the anti-moé normie crowd. There are various strains of /a/nons.
>but at the same time I think the charts clearly make an attempt to showcase quality anime.
I agree. Completely. But you have to consider that you wouldn't be triggering the manimefags if the charts didn't had a tinge of truth to them.
Any chart that doesn't have SGRS as Winter 2017 AOTS is ironic though.
Well over 50% of the images on the catalog at almost any given time contain "moe" stylized girls. Well over 50% of the images on the catalog at almost any given time do not contain "manime." /a/ is a moe board.
Stay mad sakuga fag. Maybe you will realize that animation quality is secondary someday. Substanceless garbage like Flip Flappers flops, while Kemono Friends topped the charts for a good reason.
Anon, this is a shitposting thread. So I will only use this opportunity to shill the fuck out of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.
If you have not seen this show, do it. Even if you hate it, endure it. Do it for the Dark Lord. Do it until you can't stand those fucking "boring stories" anymore and you're bleeding for your eyes and ears.
Only you can save /a/.
That is a good argument, anon, but your assertion is based on the memetic value of moé. /a/ is indeed a moé board, I agree. But that doesn't change the fact that quality is quality. Just because you don't see, say, Cowboy Bebop being posted all the time doesn't mean that you're not carrying that weight like the rest of us.
I thought we were talking about /a/'s AOTS, not yours.
All these shows that put all their points into animation have become forgotten garbage. Chinkdragon only gets brought up because it's kyoani.
Animation is the primary defining attribute of anime as a storytelling medium. What separates anime from books/comics/manga? Anime has moving pictures and sound. What separates anime from live action television and movies? Anime has moving drawings.
Animation quality must at least be equally important to storytelling if animation is the primary defining characteristic of anime as a storytelling medium. One who does not care about animation quality has no good reason to watch anime over other storytelling media.
I disagree. What you're telling me here is that Kino no Tabi is mediocre because it has a great story but subpar animation.
The soft qualities of an anime can easily offset its flaws.
That just proves my point. The point being that you are a pretentious idiot that harks on the most superficial thing. If I changed the settings on a Kindle to read Crime and Punishment in Comic Sans that doesn't make it a bad book. The animation quality doesn't drag down an entire show, nor can good animation quality stop a bad show from being shit.
>you will live to see Kino no Tabi without fucking scanlines
Feels good, anon man.
Here's the thing, if you like moe then that's fine you do you nigga. However please recognize that it has little to no creative value at this point outside of novelty gimmicks applied to formula. It isn't striking or compelling even by anime's pretty low standards. Nothing's wrong with being popular, but at the same time AOTS is reserved for an anime that is inspired. That inspiration being their top quality narrative and visuals. Dragon maid was cute monster girls doing cute monster things, Eromanga was lewding lolis to appeal to the lowest common denominator of anime fans. Both of the are not shows that should be trotted out as being the best shows that came out of their respective seasons.
>a story for children
It was written to incite a feeling of nostalgia in adults so sure. Also Kaban and Serval were the most well-developed characters this year so far.
Much better characters than a certain other duo in a show with great animation.
I don't want Suka Suka to get the attention of the shitposters. The show itself has sunk my feelings to the depths of the ocean. At this point if someone tried to shitpost about it so hard I'd probably be silent and break down inside.
It's bad enough that I'm thinking the characters didn't deserve any of that shit that happened.
I really don't get the point of Suka Suka. It's infuriating in a lot of ways like for example how the military is completely retarded. Sure, it makes for a compelling drama, but if you stop to think about it, the drama is only occurring in the first place because everyone is a complete retard. The character development is retarded or absolutely nonexistent. Also, why the fuck do we have yet another almighty MC with these cool, mysterious powers that can wet loli pants? Pretty fucking generic, if you asked me.
I mean, you're right, the characters didn't deserve any of that shit and I can sympathise with them to a point. But the whole fucking set-up was so that they would suffer thanks to sheer retardation and incompetence of their superior officers. And no one ever questions that. Even the MC is complacent and almost subservient to these shitfucks to the point where I cannot dispense any sympathy for this fuckhead.
Suka Suka is worst than bad. It's mediocre.
Shit, Planetarian accomplishes the same feels in half the episodes and that shit hits you like a ton of bricks because they absolutely did their best, they were not fucking around and the MC was just as human as you are.
You could name me ten moe shows that are hailed as "Good" and provided all the reasons they are liked so much and I promise you that I could find 100 moe animes that do the exact same thing. I'm not saying all moe animes since dawn of the genre to the heat death of universe are trash, just that the genre is beyond over saturated. It's like this Friday the 13th is a great movie but there are tons of horror films that rely on the same old tropes and rightfully aren't hailed as great films.
But Kemono Friends wasn't Anime of the Season. It's Anime of the Year
Including a masterpiece like Yuyushiki with that many bad anime should be a bannable offence
Maid Dragon was the best anime since Hibike! Euphonium 2.
>it's another moefags shove their shit taste down everyone's throat episode
Nichinjou is aesthetic as fuck, Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid was legit good and Koe no Katachi will emotionally murder anyone with a heart regardless of it's iffy direction choices.
MemeKobo can burn for all I care.
Spotted the FaceBerg user.
>fuck no, it was boring
Successfully identified the sociopath ITT.
K-On makes me cry but I couldn't give a fuck about the characters in Koe no Katachi. The girl is just "the victim girl" and the guy is just "the redemption guy", they aren't actual human characters beyond their roles in the plot
The heroine fakes being a hikki because she's a lazy piece of shit.
Actually Making this statement in the first place gives the show too much credit, as that would assume the author consciously added inconsistencies about when she can or cannot leave her room.
Also I don't think I've ever seen a show reaching for that incest tag as hard as Eromanga. These people met the day after their parents got married, and didn't see each other until the start of the show. They are basically strangers, not brother and sister. Elfs a fake loli, Chin Chins a fake bitch, and Muramasa is a fake Kuroneko.
See? Every aspect of this show is bullshit and lies. Did I answer your question?
>The girl is just "the victim girl" and the guy is just "the redemption guy"
I kind of agree, anon, especially because they're both victims of circumstance really. But redemption guy never really sees it this way, which perhaps is a good thing seeing how, wittingly or unwittingly, he sought the path that healed people the most around him. Not choosing to ever identify himself as a victim was very mature of him. Victim girl, however, was kind of an insipid character but it was moe at its finest: you really wanted to protect her. I'm a sucker for these kinds of stories but I wholeheartedly admit that my affection for this movie stems solely from KyoAni's ability to successfully pull at my manly heartstrings.
I completely get why anons would not like this movie, especially considering that off-putting "My Generation" intro.
"W-Wait, what are you doing, Kanna?"
>The audience chuckles nervously
"Y-You're getting too c-close!!"
>The audience laughs heartily
>The audience begins laughing so hard they burst into flame and their lungs explode. They start pissing themselves from laughter, which fails to put out the flames but makes everything smell like burnt hair and urine. An older gentleman has a heart attack and dies on the floor, burning and covered in piss. The earth trembles below the studio, opening a gaping crack into the underbelly of the earth. Several members of the audience are dragged into the blackness, laughing so hard blood spills from their mouths as they descend into the molten core of the earth, smashing into the rock as they fall. The continued laughter echoes off the rock, causing the largest known earthquake in history, crippling the powergrids of several of the world’s major cities, plunging humankind into darkness for weeks. Martial law is called into effect as the riots increase in size and aggressiveness. As food begins to run out, half of the world’s populace is dead, with the survivors now resorting to cannibalism and subsistence farming.

Truly the best timeline.

Normalfags never learn.

But that 1 week is enough to call the AOTS already
>starts and ends in their final junior high year

>oh noes I'm going away *cries*
Normalfag just fuck off to your website.
>starts and ends in their final junior high year
How is this a problem?
>they've only dated for a few weeks, 5 months top
So it a few weeks or five months? Are you sure you watched it?
>barely talk to each other yet kiss constantly
That's pretty much textbook teenage romance, the real kind, not anime romance. But I get it you're just salty you never got to experience it.
>oh noes I'm going away *cries*
That's a believable development, how is it forced?
It's a problem because they've known each other for less than a year and yet I'm supposed to care about what happens to those two characters. Well too bad, I don't care about literal who characters and the constant screaming QUALITY doesn't help one bit.
It's forced because the show assumes you care about those idiots that had little development together. Not that it matters anyway, they did a huge timeskip with a happy ending just to.
But of course normalfags like you flock to it regardless of how bad it was, probably because normalfag women are fucking trash and you need something similar, but not quite, in 2D.
Argument 404. Eromanga is /a/ spring AOTS, deal with it.
I never thought about it, but I guess kemono friends probably is /v/core. I liked kemono friends but the constant general threads even a season after the show ended is seriously vomit inducing, and also exactly the kind of thing /v/ does.
What you're saying is basically that couldn't relate to the characters, which is saying more about you than about the show.
That you think a mediocre anime like Eromanga is better than Tsuki ga Kirei when the latter has vastly superior art, direction and writing is really shameful. You don't like anime, you just like cheap eroticism and fetish fuel.
If you just title it /a/'s official CGDCT show of the season I have no problems with this whatsoever. Looks like the best example was picked each season.
But sometimes a show that doesn't prominently feature cute girls can also be the AOTS.Wild.
>That you think a mediocre anime like Eromanga is better than Tsuki ga Kirei when the latter has vastly superior art, direction and writing is really shameful.
Its wrong to lie on the internet, anon.
This is why other boards think /a/ has shit taste
I know you "people" who came last year thanks to the US election are retarded but come on now.
But lain is pretentious drive with moeshit, the best kind of anime
>if a show doesn't have cute girls it's shit!
What does this remind me of
Season 4 airing now, season 5 already confirmed
only normalfags and ironic weebs watched ero manga sensei
Did Eromanga-sensei end up being a retread of Oreimo or was it an "I want my sister to leave her room so I can have an actual family" sort of thing?
I watched the first episode and it reminded me of how much I hated the ending.
I think it was better than Oreimo because it was more in your face with its fanservice and degeneracy. It didn't pretend to be something it wasn't. Also the worst character in Eromanga-sensei is still better than the best one in Oreimo, so there's that.
I actually wholeheartedly agree with this.
Anybody can be that retarded namefag see? It's just a /r/anime meme forced on /a/ and it will never be funnny.
replace with natsume and we are all g
Jesus christ, look at those views. Then look at Digibro's recent videos. I wonder if he'll make a comeback
why is un-/a/ so mad about kemono friends winning?
It'd be in the OP image if it won, anon.
Maidragon is AOTY so far to be quite and completely honest, it also has LOTY and possible LOTD. If the show didn't have such a weak climax I'd definitely bet my soul on Maidragon for definitive AOTY without even waiting for the rest of the seasons.
I'd give you Kemono since /a/ are mostly sheep who follow whatever trend is going on Japan at the moment even if it isn't that good. But KonoSuba being that high in the poll was thanks to /v/.
Sakufags hate it because it's cheap 3DCG.
/v/ hates it because they can't see its qualities.
Manimefags hate it because it has cute girls.
Edgy teenagers hate it because they think it's furry.
Casuals in general think it's just a 'meme show'.
So many people can find a reason to hate it, yet it's still very popular. Maybe because it's actually good.
And AOTY can go to none other than the show responsible for this.
Go ahead and insert me in bottom right
where the fuck is yoi on the 2016 one?
>implying fall wont be Mahoutsukai no Yome
well, if they get the scenery right at least and don't skimp out on their budget. But considering it's dialogue heavy and /a/ has ADHD, I'm nto too sure.
This was aots.
it wasn't, it was a good anime, apart from all the gay shit that it's on it its great, listen, i like anime girls too but i really dont think they deserve the best anime spot every single year.
>all moeblob uguu series
that is some shit tastes you got there
Tsuki Ga Kirei fundamentally changed what I expect out of romance in anime. It's been years since a show has managed to pull a reaction like that out of me. I know this is just shitposting bait but if I were to choose a Spring AotS, it'd be Tsuki Ga.
Why do you fucks keep replying to this retarded troll's thread for at least 3 years? Every thread reached +300 replies. HOLY SHIT, THIS BOARD IS FILLED WITH BRAINDEAD PEOPLE
Fuck off, Tsuki ga Kirei is easily AOTS above Eromanga. Eromanga is pedophilic garbage. Drivel. Literally just an incest desiring pedophile's wet dream. That shit really shouldn't have been made.
This thread is literally plebbit so /v/ memes are still technically to good for you.
