Lucky Star will be seven years old this year.
Azumanga Daioh will be twelve.
>tfw you watched both these shows when they were "new"
pain and suffering
I guess I'll celebrate by watching the only four good episodes.
I seriously hope you're not referring to Azumanga Daioh.
k-on will be half a decade old
I should get around to watching that sometime
>Code Geass came out more than seven years ago
There was once a time when you would be banned for even suggesting you haven't watched AzuDai. I miss that time.
I haven't watched either of these. How did they hold up?
They're mostly moe shows with little substance to them, unmemorable and bland. It's not like you've been missing out on Oscar worthy works of art. What did you think?
Don't bother. The anime fucks the pacing of jokes in the ass.
Stick with the manga.
I BUY SAUSAGE
Azumanga defined a genre. You aren't a real otaku if you haven't seen it.
I know sausage was the 'thing' but I always heard it as "I BUY SEMTEX"
Azumanga Daioh is like the Evangelion of SoL.
So it's shit?
No, that's the opposite
I guess it is. I still love it because muh nostalgia.
Fuck you, Azumanga is one of the most influential animus of the 00's
No, it isn't shit. Possibly inferior to the manga if your tastes sit that way, but both have their strengths, the anime just has more weaknesses than the manga does.
Either way, Azumanga Daioh the anime pioneered and opinions remains the best of the SoL genre. EVERY schoolgirls-doing-schoolgirl-things show owes a lot to it, yet none have surpassed it. Certainly none have ever come close to being as trippy as it, though I guess that's not really the goal of a SoL show.
You know what really scares me even though it's not quite as long as that? Panty & Stocking will be 4 years this year. Feels like goddamn yesterday.
Pretty much this. Only good part about the anime is the OP and Chiyo's Dad.
Kagami is the best.
The ending is really good too. And Osaka in general.
>Panty & Stocking will be 4 years this year.
And Imaishi still hasn't done anything worthwhile.
Oh yeah, I have no idea how I forgot Osaka.
No. But if SoL is the cancer killing the anime industry, then Azumanga was the greatest cigarette ever made.
The best part of the OP is actually what comes AFTER the TV-size ends.
>remember listening to the OP on the way to high school every day
>now I'm alone and graduated university
it hurts /a/
Konata probably killed herself 5 years ago. Miyuki's been an av actress for 3 years. Kagami still takes care of Tsukasa.
>watch anime for tween girls
>wonder why I am alone
at least I have Konata to play video games with
SoL is the surgery saving anime. Only true fans are left and everything else is cut out.
Konata is old and busted. Tomoko is the new hotness.
>old and busted
This expression applied to 2D underdeveloped high school girls never fails to make me smile.
Better metaphor. Imagine you are in a coma. You are still conscious. You cannot see, but you can hear everything around you. You cannot move any muscle in your body, and you cannot communicate with the world around you in any way. You are in constant agony. You feel pain in everywhere in your body, from your core all they way out to the tips of your extremities. You yearn for nothing but death. The only thing keeping you from suffocating is a plastic tube shoved down your throat, connected to an artificial respirator.
That respirator is SoL.
