So,

What is /co/'s holy jewel?

In The Aeroplane Over the Sea isn't anything like The Unfunnies, though, it's just exceptionally overrated by /mu/, even if they're doing it ironically.

I'd almost describe it as 'aggressively mediocre'.

The /co/ thing I'd most compare to ITAOTS is The Simpsons, taken as a whole. Talked about way too much, more or less 'eh' if you take the average of everything, and memetastic

/a/'s Jewel is Code Geass.

>>
Cerebus.
Let the triggering begin, you know it's true.
>>
>>78293207
I will never understand what /a/ sees on that show. I even tried watching and I stopped real quickly.
The story is pretty shitty, the character design is derivative and the animation is bog standard.
>>
>>78293207
I'll admit, I'm not into anime, only heard about it from friends, but isn't that the one with the stupid twist where one of the big villains is only evil because the MC accidentally mind controlled her into being evil while demonstrating how his mind control works?
>>
>>78290777
Loveless is a weird choice for /mu/. Sure it is a beloved classic, but it isn't discussed to the degree that In the Aeroplane over the Sea or My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is. On the other hand /mu/ does not have even remotely unified taste, it is a splintered board full of people who like their one genre and nothing else. People who like shoegaze go to shoegaze threads, people who like hip hop go to hip hop threads, people who like noise go to noise threads, etc... but these people really don't mingle or get along. The same thing goes for /co/ which is why this thread is full of stupid answers that no one can agree on.
>>

But deus ex is an old game too, why is it /v/ and not /vr/?

>>78293291

>>78290977
/vr/ actually isn't that bad.
>>
>>78293361

It's the same shit as Alpha Protocol and Mass Effect. Terrible gameplay and level design, but it has TALKING and CHOICES, so that makes it good.

>>78293250
Yes but she isn't a villain. She is pretty much the only 100% good character in the show, and she almost solves the entire conflict, but then the MC accidentally mind controls her into murdering a lot of innocent people, which forces him to kill her. It sounds dumb but off all the dumb things in the show, it's actually presented well, and not as a twist

The thing about NGE and /a/ is that, while its quality is always debated and contested, its imagery is immediately recognizable. There is an immediate mental link between NGE and /a/. When asking the question "What is the Evangelion of X" you definitely aren't asking "What is the work that this board agrees is a masterpiece?" because /a/ would never agree on that.

For comics probably Sandman, Hellboy, Watchmen or tlato Scrooge McDuck. For cartoons I'd say Samurai Jack, Batman tas, Avatar, Looney Tunes or classic Spongebob.

I think it's because /co/ is too disunified since its comics AND cartoons (to mirror /a/ because moot was a stupid fucking weeb like that) even though Western comics and cartoons are a lot more different than anime and manga. Would the "holy jewel" of /co/ be a comic or a cartoon?

This is wrong, all the people saying ITAOTS are also wrong. Go make a thread praising ITAOTS right now and half the thread will be people talking about how shit it is.
