I'm mostly just watching it for a short laugh, also it's nice having something you can look forward too every week, I'd probably kill myself if I actually had to wait for new seasons of the animes I watch without being able to atleast kind of distract myself
>What's the point of watching anime
There isn't any point anon, you and I will die and on your death bed you will realize, that there is no point.
It's kinda exciting to watch shows at the same time as other anons and post about it here. I only pick up about four or five and end up dropping half of them, although autumn looks pretty good so might pick up more than usual.
Culture (poems, novels, music, movies, TV shows, paintings, everything) is a very slow dialog with ever-changing participants.
An ancient Greek said something through themes, a Roman picked it up, put his own spin on it and responded. Then a medieval writer interpreted the point. A renaissance writer ignored what had come before and answered directly to the Greek, unknowingly attaching nuances of the medieval philosopher's thoughts to his own message. Then the theme was exported to Japan, translated several times on the way, and found its way into an anime.
If you don't pay attention to what's current, you are missing out on what people are talking about, and even what you are talking about. You shouldn't ignore the roots of things, but it's the recent stuff that you need to reply to.
Maybe he just faps to others' seasonal waifus or just waifu-tier seasonal grills. Is that bad too?
If you enjoy a show, watch it. If you don't enjoy a show, stop. Only bother discussing shows you like on /a/. You can avoid a lot of wasted time this way. (Does not apply if you have zero other hobbies.)
I can understand if the show is good but honestly so many just look like absolute forgettable trash and yet /a/ keeps following them
Sure there might be a diamond in the rough now and again, like there's no way I would have given Kemono Friends a second glance unless people said it kept up in quality and cuteness despite the shitty animation, but so many of these are just... fuck
