So we are all very familiar with casual filter anime and manga that allow us to know who functions at a lowest common denominator of baseline taste. With the proliferation of anime and to a far lesser extent, manga, these have deteriorated as filters and are no longer very useful for finding people with enough taste and sense to discuss /a/ topics with.

This is truer every day on /a/, where you can expect to easily find people watching the current anime season (nothing inherently wrong with this but often demonstrates sheep-like tendencies and lack of taste), or people who have only just graduated from baby's first anime and assume that their love of Mushishi, Oreimo or Fate makes them well-read or watched.

With the proviso that I have nothing personally against these people, I suggest that it trying to discuss other types of anime or manga can lead to conversational dead ends with these folks. Therefore, I find it prudent to establish a shorthand for knowing who's up on the more patrician tastes behind the curtain.

What are patrician filters, my friends? I find that while not every historical manga is good, the many that are, are largely ignored. Pictured here is Ad Astra - Scipio to Hannibal, an excellent historical manga. You will be hard pressed to find regular threads about people following Cesare or Historie's scanlations.

What are some other filters that you know of?

>So we are all very familiar with casual filter
No. It's a relatively recent idea that I suspect was imported from another board, and while I theoretically understand what you mean by it, I refuse to make myself familiar with the concept. It's stupid and unhelpful.

Relatively recent, you mean? The concept has been around for years and it is fairly useful for time management when it comes to quality discussion. The idea that it's some sort of crossboarder import is fairly silly, anon.

>The concept has been around for years
No, it has not. But I wouldn't expect a newfag to know such things.
By the way, /a/ has always been primarily about currently airing shows. If anything, that focus has been lost in recent years. Lurk more.

These are pretty bad examples. Hox makes a thread for every Historie chapter, and there hasn't been a new chapter of Cesare scanlated in almost two years.

If we're talking about filters, there is absolute one shining example that stands above the rest.
If you've seen this obscure masterpiece you know you've made it. The themes, the artistic direction, the borderline experimental storytelling and surreal landscapes.
It really separates those in the know, from those who are better off ignored.
I'm talking of Boku no Pico of course.

I don't mean to be rude OP, but I don't think we can have a deeper discussion of filters without first addressing this titan of a series.
