When will you get through your head there is nothing good to madoka? Nothing. It draws in a large crowd due to a cute girls and a tryhard 2deep4u story. It's filled with edgyness to the brim and has a poorly written story which was only resolved in the end due to a deus ex machina. Get fucked casual.

I still haven't finished C3-bu.

I tend to pick up shows like Hyperdimension Neptunia, Idolm@ster, and Gen'ei wo kakeru Taiyou that are full of cute girls but devoid of plot, but rarely do I finish them.
>>
I'm only watching Space Dandy so far. I might give Nisekoi a try.
I'm also going to watch Maken-ki for that ecchi treatment. I haven't watched an ecchi anime in years since they've all either been low quality, or crap stories.
Hopefully Maken-ki will do justice.

>Do people still actually drop shows which they started watching?

I guess watching/reading previews and plot premises and then do not even consider what you already know you won't like it's too hard for some people.

Not even a matter of how good or bad a show is: if i can see i won't enjoy it, why should i bother?

And even if as season moves on you see a serie became interesting, then pick it up and marathon.

That simple.

Is there any easy way to find out who is subbing all the shows you want to watch? It's a pain when you want to watch like seven shows and you have to figure out who is subbing what (if anyone) and then download form each site separately.

A combination of stuff high up and stuff that is not high up, and stuff you didn't bother picking up as well. Nothing is particularly egregious on its own, it's more a combination of everything, but ST in blue and SD in red stand out more than anything. Also, your not having picked up Noragami and Toaru Hikuushi.

Just asking, have you read the Seki-kun manga?
>>
>>100076025
I am sorry, forgetting RGZ was a honest to god miss.

And, for the record, I've been considering the Tonari no Seki-kun manga as one of my personal top 10 for the last year or so. And it's a great adaptation, even considering the pocket change budget for animation. I am pretty much sure nothing this year will be able to top the enjoyment I get from Tonari no Seki-kun.

Now looking forward to watching Sekai Seifuku and Nobunagun since nearly everything else you wrote is in alignment with my tastes.

Sekai Seifuku is great and you most likely will enjoy it even if you don't like lolis, since it's not really fanservice oriented.

Nobunagun is hit or miss, but if you like mindless fun you will really love it.

People who have a decent grasp of the English language tend to use "pretty good" as something between "good" and "very good"; definitely not as a synonym of "not bad".

I didn't expect anything from this season and I'm already enjoying some shows really much. My two favs at the moment are Wake up girls (Yamakan strong) and Sekai Seifuku (delicious loli+tanks+ridiculous gags = Win).
>>
>>100076853
How many did you watch? There are a number of new anime this season that are good for a lot of the same reasons that Chuu2 is good, like Sekai Seifuku, Nobunagun, and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei

He means Shinsekai Yori, which aired from Fall 2012 - Spring 2013. Tbh, I only just watched it myself. I needed a good couple of days when I could relax and fully appreciate it, and it took me that long to find the time. God damn was it good, though. Poor Squealer.

>>100076900
Try watching them every once and a while and most are just so generic and boring its hard to care. So much of it has been done better.

I am a sucker for cute stuff and yuri so feel fine on judging me for that one

>SD in red
The characters didn't work for me. I expected Dandy to be more competent and well dandy but he came off like a incopetent retard (both with the missing everything he shot in the whole episode and the bomb thing), QT is likable but a bit too whinny, Meow has no personality so far. Like i said, things can change, i think this is probably the red show with the highest chance to jump depending on the next episodes.

>Not picking Noragami or Toaru Hikuushi
I was going to Noragami but i have too many to handle right now fear that Noragami is Bones back show and will suffer from quality soon enough.

I didn't pick Toaru because i am not a fan of suffering in general, but it seems better than stuff i picked like WCW or Nobunaga the Fool.

Do try Tonari no Seki-kun and Zvezda. Mikakunin is ... good, but I dunno. There were weak points, and it seems to me it could quickly turn to shit. Mainly because of the pink girl, the rest of the characters are pretty solid, but she seems like a likely candidate to annoy me to hell.

Seitokai S1 was okay, I'm watching S2 and losing my faith in it. It's not as clear cut as: Liking S1 == Guarenteed to like S2. Saki was good in S1 but seemed to fall apart every following season which looks to not have changed. I also thought Strike Witches and OreImo were great in S1 but completely sucked for S2.

>Tonari no Seki-kun

Overdone humour, seen it too many times for it to be funny anymore. Not really keen on the art either, looks like a niconico flash animation.

>Silver spoon

Tries too hard to be a noitaminA series to the point where it seems to lose any identity of its own. Once again, I just feel like I've seen this type of show hundreds of times in the past few years.

I will try Hamatora though

Well, you're right. The only things I'm remotely interested in are this and Sakura Trick, and that's only because I'll watch anything with yuri as part of the main plot.

I hope it's able to sustain itself as a show and not just run on the fumes of Watanabe's last two good shows. And that Keiko Nobumoto writes a bunch of the eps.

>>100078005
>It was established
Only after it aired, before that all we knew was that he was a dandy guy in space. While i knew he wasn't going to be "cool" and composed i just expected him being a little pompous and goofy, able to support his arrogance while making some mistakes and stupid shit here and there, the way he was presented was complete incompetence though, a pure retard.

Z/X and Sonico, not like I had high expectations for these but at least I tried them.

Generally "not bad" includes everything above "average". That's the usual assumption, although you could as easily use it simply for everything above "bad", as it literally says. What's for sure though is that it includes stuff that's below "good".

"Pretty", however, is always used to strengthen the meaning of "good" in that context.

Of course it was a typo, Anon-kun. Just like your super high power level that leads you to conclude that Space Dandy is the only watchable show of the season.

What were you referring to then? Because "Tonari" is written with one kanji in japanese... well, in the title of "Tonari no Seki-kun", it's written with kana, but that's another question.

Anon-kun, you were the one to bring this up in your post here: >>100077316. I'm not going to get into a dick-waving competition, but one of us is watching over 15 shows this season and the other one of us claims to only be watching one show this season, which happens to be the one show most accessible to non-anime fans.

What does accessibility have to do with anything? We've been dealt a season of pretty shitty anime and the only thing worth watching is a Toonamifag's wet dream.

Big fucking deal, that's just how it is this time. Maybe next season the only things worth watching will be fujoshi shows. You can sit there and categorize me if you want, but you should know that my powerlevel is probably far higher than yours before you do. Not everyone fits nicely into the little stereotyped boxes you created in your head and that is a fact.

Phrases don't work like that, ESL.

"Pretty good" in answer to a question like "How was your day?" is one thing.
As far as discussing a fictional work goes, saying simply "good" would directly imply that this is the highest praise you can give it. "Pretty good" doesn't change the strength that much, but now that you have made the effort to say "pretty" too, the one in front of you may expect that you can say what was "more" and what was "less" in your "more or less good". In other words... simply "good" would be taken as "less or less good", while "pretty good" as "more or less good". Fuck, I am asleep, this whole paragraph doesn't read completely right... ah well.

The fact is that there is nothing Space Dandy has that half a dozen other anime this season don't do better, and a dozen other anime this season don't do just as well.

You're such a fucking retard I don't even know where to begin with you. Simply saying something is "good" is more definitive than saying something is "pretty good". Saying something is "pretty good" is basically saying something is good with certain reservations, or saying something is modestly good, or "moderately"/"fairly" good like the fucking English language dictionary said it is you goddamn idiot.

You bring your powerlevel into question by constantly talking about it. Let's face it, if you can't find anything other than Japanese Zapp Brannigan entertaining, you probably don't like anime. There are some solid works this season. Over all it's probably the best of the year, though other seasons may have had individual shows that were better.

Pretty shitty season to be honest, no real MUST WATCH shows, just a few that are good enough to not feel like I'm wasting my time. I still watched like 15 first episodes, but I wonder how many will last past 3 episodes. Nisekoi, Sakura Trick, Noragami, maybe Chuu4 and Nobunaga shows. The rest, not sure about it. And Seitokai jokes got old for me.

I only really like Space Dandy and Tonari no Seki-kun so far.
Also Nobunagun, but this could go either way.
But there is also Wizard Barristers, I have high hopes for that.
>>
>>100080476

I brought my powerlevel into question because I accurately predicted that someone would make an assumption of it based on my choice of anime this season.

Sorry but in my opinion, aside from Space Dandy there is nothing really worth watching this season. I could maybe accept Nobunaga the Brave but I've already marathoned a couple of other Nobunaga shows and played some games based around Nobunaga so I can't handle more right now.

In my opinion, Space Dandy while not AotY material, is hitting marks that everything else is falling short on. It's doing something we haven't seen for a long while, if at all.

Saying I 'probably don't like anime' is ridiculous when I've almost certainly seen much more than you and continue to watch anime every day.
>>
>>100080668
And Sekai Seifuku?
>>
>>100080668

Nobunaga the Fool, not Brave. I've been overwhelmed with Nobunaga recently. There was even a drama based on Nobunaga on TV not long ago.

>>100080668
>I don't like any anime this season except the one that is pretty much made for people who don't like anime. Saying I don't like anime is ridiculous.
>>
Where to start... This season, like virtually all seasons of anime, is horrible. It really seems like my tastes are too high for this entire medium.

What I enjoyed:
Sekai Seifuku - I thought it's impossible to have fun watching anime when you're more sophisticated than your typical otaku. I enjoyed it. Definitely the best first episode from this season.

I will probably watch few more episodes:
Tonari no Seki-kun - it's moderately funny and short.
Sakura Trick - yuri is my weakness, but it's certainly not amazing.
Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - slice of life is my weakness. It's dull and uninspired.
Robot Girls Z - it's okay.

I doubt I will download more episodes:
Houzuki no Reitetsu - meh.
Noragami - meh.
Space Dandy - disappointing.
Pilot's Love Song - disappointing.
Wake Up, Girls - painfully mediocre.

Worthless shit. If you watch it you're simply a dumb person:
Nisekoi - so generic it hurts. Embarrassing to watch. Please kill yourself if you enjoy this.
Nourin - garbage without redeeming qualities.
Nobunagun - stupid show for kids and manchidren.
Nobunaga the Fool - same as Nobunagun.
ImoCho - Shame on people who created this thing. Shame on them and their families.
Mahou Sensou - I couldn't finish first episode.
>>
>>100080668
>It's doing something we haven't seen for a long while, if at all.
It is? Wow. You mean the thing about the dub? Because I sure have seen enough shows about borderline incompetent loners IN SPACE or not. Pretty much only the opening was above average quality. Well, we will see how's the second episode, the first episode however cliched it was can be used in some really good ways. I can count at least two-three off the tip of my tongue.

How so? It's not like currently airing anime is the only source of anime. There's plenty of backlog to clear when you consider there's well over 6500 anime series as of today and I have seen over a quarter of that number

It clearly caters to a western market. Hell it aired in the US before it aired in Japan.
>>
>>100080939
This is rich. You claim that your tastes are too high for anime, and yet you immediately give ATOY status to the most pandering loli/magic/cliche anime of the season.

It also baffles the mind that you like Sekai Seifuku so much, and even claim to like Sakura Trick, but are immune to the obviously superior (from a pandering point of view) H anime, ImoCho.
>>
>>100080939
Despite having good taste, you take yourself way too seriously and are a horrible person.
>>
>>100081079

The western anime market.

That doesn't mean it's for people who don't like anime, just people who like anime in a different country.

>Mahou Sensou - I couldn't finish first episode.
It was so dumb that I expected the entirety of it to drop the gun and overturn the expectations created by that awful beginning, evolving into something beautiful.

Well, I did get one almost-death by direct hit to the throat, but that was hardly enough to save the series from being the most stupefying piece of shit I've seen for the last 6 months.

You like anime.
Therefore your statement is wrong.

He's right, it felt very generic and cliched. But I'm guessing you're the sort of person who thinks Little Witch Academia was somehow different from everything else too.

That it needs to do things different to cater to them is in itself evidence they don't like anime. After all, if they did, they would be fine with current anime. Let's face facts, it's targeted at people who don't generally watch anime buy have seen a few shows. People who dislike most anime.

And there we have it. The reason nobody asked for your supposed powerlevel. I knew you would lie about it, but God damn, you're a bad liar. Before you come back at me with "hurr no I'm not," consider this: if every anime in existence is a part of your backlog, then it would make absolutely no sense for you to only be watching one show per season. You dun goof't and lied too big of a lie, son. Let this be a lesson for you.

Sorry, it's true. I'm not a big fan of anime. This is the first time when I tried watching everything. Anime is not only painfully generic and dumb, it's just badly made. Pacing, script, characters, plot, everything is so damn flawed. Even mediocre Hollywood blockbusters are better than this.

I just can't stand to see people calling Sekai Seifuku pandering or cliche.

>>100081291

That doesn't make any sense. If anything, doing something different caters to people who DO like anime, because anyone who has watched enough anime would always be prepared to see something different as there is so much today that is exactly the same.

You can be a fan of anime and not like the majority of current anime. The only reason we've seen such an explosion of anime in the past 5 years is because it's become counterculture cool in Japan to be 'otaku'. Hence a large number of what people think are 'otaku pandering' shows get produced. It's all about money. Doing something different could be easily seen as making an anime for the real fans.
>>
>>100081345
I'm not going to /tv/ to bitch about how I disliked Game of Thrones or Walking Dead. I just don't enjoy western productions, such as you don't seem to enjoy anime.

Just because anime was good enough to watch every season before does not mean it is today. You're assuming I've always done the same thing in my life or will always do the same thing, which is wrong and incorrect.

No, not every anime in existence is part of my backlog, but well over half of it is.

>>100081683
I tend to dislike shorts, but infernocop and senyuu were great. I initially put inferno cop in picked up and senyuu in limbo.
I find tonari's "humour" to be stale and annoying more than anything, and pupa really doesn't seem like anything that could be interesting to see in such short segments. Isn't the manga a full story? In any case, with all the hype, I expected a shitload more out of it.
>>
>>100081740

I suppose so yes, but I'd say that 2006-2008 is in the clear as there were lots of entertaining shows in that period. In 2009 we started to get a niwaka resurgence and the quality dropped incredibly.

>>100081736
Last year I watched Non Non Biyori, Uchouten Kazoku, Chihayafuru, Kiniro Mosaic and Yuyushiki.

There were other good shows, like the new season of Yozakura, but with your obvious preferences I don't know if I am to recommend them.

No of course not, 1800 completed shows only. It's only been in the past few years that I feel currently airing anime has been shit enough to drop. All the way up until about 2008 I was only dropping 4-5 a year because I was pretty impressed with what was coming out.

Gatchaman, hataraku, henneko, klk, kyousogiga, log horizon, zettai bouei leviathan, maoyu, senyuu, SSY, yushibu, inferno cop, mondaijitachi, noucome, psychopass, the unlimited and yamato 2199 are all 'good' at the minimum.

While I enjoyed all of these, excluding the second season and ending to Oreimo, none of these are classics. I wish the first two were, but let's face it, they are never going to be. Oreimo and Chuu2 are just insanely popular, but not classics. Outbreak or Kamisama have the best chance at being classics under good terms.

That whole list is fucked up, I don't think I can agree with a single one of these. Some of them are decent (Jinrui, Usagi Drop) but none of them are classics.

Come back when you've watched some anime, it's pretty obvious you only got into the hobby in the past few years.

OC, while kinda fun, has nothing memorable enough to become a classic.

>>100083188

I don't think anyone would list over 10 shows as 'classics from the past few years' if they had any sense, much less the generic copycat ones listed.

>>100083219

Madoka is already at 'action RPG spinoff fighting game' part of the worn-out franchise timeline, Toradora has been forgotten by practically everyone. It didn't even have anything good going for it in the first place.
>>
>>100083226
I completely agree, but unfortunately, the OC cult following is zealot-mode crazy about the show.
>>
>>100083219
Unfortunately.

That being said, I had lots of fun with Madoka with /a/. Until the last episode aired and people started proclaiming it for the best anime ever. Ah, how I miss the times of the black cat being Homura...

>>100083188
I'm not making fun of you, just pointing out that these are classics in the conventional definition of the word. Outbreak and Kamisama don't get threads anymore. They've both faded into obscurity now. Chuu2 had a shitty second half according to most people (I thought the first half was the shit half) and Oreimo is just infamous.

I'd be one of those guys and say you have shit taste etc., etc., but I won't and just say that I think you're missing out. I agree, it's kind of iffy at the beginning and hard to really get into, but once it ramps up, it ramps up into a very good show.
>>
>>100083406
The definition of "classic" I was using is something that a normalfag/casualfag might find out about through a recommendation list and have their interest in anime piqued. Popularity doesn't really factor in to the equation.

>>100082835
You forgot KLK, which is probably the AOTY.

>>
>>100083394
>Just because it flew under the radar on /a/
It didn't, people watched it. And then a lot of people dropped it because it was average at best with questionable premise. Good for you if you enjoyed it, I enjoyed it too. But it won't be a classic.
>>
>>100083368
Could be.
I didn't watch (or read) SZS so I can't say if I liked it.

None of you defined what makes a classic yet. Stop bickering when you haven't agreed on the terms.

>You mean a poor man's Keroro Gunsou?

>>100083214
Retarded dragon girls is good if you imagine it as a p&p rpg campaign you're seeing animated.
>>
>>100083527
wut

By that definition anything short of Joshiraku may be considered a "classic".
>>
>>100083527
Okay, I could see Kamisama being on a list like that because it's incredibly beautiful and I like the way it flowed and the arcs were all great, aside from the asspull ending, but I don't see Outbreak Company ever being on a list like that.
>>
>>100083442
>Hozuki no Reitetsu
You'll like it if you can appreciate something like Servant x Service.

>Nobunagun
The MC is a very cute tomboy, but the anime will probably devolve into a cheesy villain-of-the-week type of action show. Watch the first episode anyway.

>Sakura Trick
Slightly above average yuri anime. Almost on par with Yuru Yuri.
>>
>>100083581

I think a classic goes unspoken. The one on that list with the highest chance of being a classic is Madoka which has already outstayed it's short welcome because it frankly, wasn't all it was cracked up to be.
>>
>>100083614
Speaking of which, how do other people - especially the ones who didn't like it - imagine it? Isn't p&p campaign basically the only possible interpretation?

As well as hidden gems, shows with dodgy summaries and shows that will make you say retrospectively, "Shit, I almost missed out on a great show because the synopsis turned me off."
>>
>>100083581
So, a show that incredibly well received or incredibly popular that will be talked about in about 5 years? I think that's a pretty good standard for a classic.

If it did, then why are so many people disagreeing? What determines it, exactly? When people still make threads about it? That can happen for many reasons.

>likes Tonari no Seki-kun

>>
>>100083701

But he's right, there's nothing classic in that list and a lot of the list is actually shit. Fucking Chuu2? Really? I would have thought even Toradora fans would have recognized it as being shit.

I saw a PV for an anime that had something to do with magic and trails and there was a big action scene involving a train and some gunplay, I thought it started this season but I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
>>
>>100083774

Madoka was supposed to be the biggest thing since Eva and it didn't deliver at all. It was overhyped and did not live up to said hype, simple as that. Madoka is just not that great or special. Good for it's time, but would have been forgotten in the same season as some of the 2007 giants.
>>
>>100083581
I did. Scroll up about a dozen posts.
>>
>>100083780
Classic-ity is not about taste, it's about objective inherent qualities of the show.
>>
>>100083711
I'm well aware of that. If any of the shows I dismissed end up being praised on /a/, I'll give them a chance. That's how I picked up Ixion Saga, which ended up being one of my favourites from its season.

But if I gave every show with a description like that a chance before hearing anything about them, I'd just waste hours at the start of each season slogging through shit. So, I only jump right into shows that I'm almost sure will be decent.
>>

Then I only fear how bad Ika Musume is since the only thing the Keroro anime had going for it was Kululu being voiced by Takehito Koyasu.

As for the thread topic, Space Dandy is the only thing I'm watching from this season, and that's only because it happens to come on relatively near King of the Hill's time slot. Anime-wise, my plate's already full trying to finish last season's stuff...
>>
>>100083777
SZS basically takes a single topic/social issue (eg. the importance of 50/50) and extrapolates it. Tonari no Seki-kun has a glorious motherfucker pull out something to play in class while Yokoi reacts to it, whether it be commentary, imagining or active participation. They're both rather formulaic, but that is not a bad thing.

Hype is not the show. Other people's opinions are not the show. That's just your own fault for listening to that hype. If someone went in without listening to such hype, and thought it was great, who's opinion would be more valid?

>>
>>100083764
My experience actually shows the exact opposite: the normalfags around me have liked high school SoLs more than the other type of shows.

My cousin loves Daily Lives of High School Boys, Working, Servant x Service, and pretty much has seen only these shows.
There was one day when I tried showing many first episodes to a friend of mine who had not seen any anime up to then. She liked the most... Hidamari Sketch.
After many years of mentioning random titbids of anime to one of my best friends, she finally said we must watch Aria together one day.
...and so on.
>>
>>100084070
It was. This is a simple fact. It could have been good, but then it had to go full retard and try to shoehorn romance into it.
>>
>>100083892
Depends on where exactly you are. I think certain communities will see different shows as classics than another. What's talked about a lot here might never be talked about again on 2ch or on MAL or on ANN. I think it's dependent upon the community you're in to decide what is and isn't a classic through sheer amount of talk and praise surrounding said show or movie.

Everyone else disagrees, though. It's still talked about today, won't be forgotten any time soon, and has had a mostly positive reception ever since it was airing.
>>
>>100084498
Other than it being completely different?
>>
>>100084466

Why are you just repeating what you said before? The only critique of the show you brought up was that you had high expectations about it, meaning you just talked about yourself and other people, not the show. It's not "but still", actually explain yourself.

You haven't defined what you think classic means, either.

I don't think there's anything that you could call cerebral, but there's some pretty visually appealing shows this season. Space Dandy, Robot Girls, Mikakunin de Shinkoukei, and Seikai Seifuku have shown some pretty strong animation. I assume that Kyoani's Chuunibyou does as well, although I haven't bothered to check it out since I never finished S1. Although they might not be on the same level in terms of pure animation, Nobunagun, Nisekoi, and Pupa do some interesting things with the design and color palettes.

I can't say that I have a desire to continue watching some of the listed shows, but at the very least I found all of them interesting to look at. Maybe some of them were just pouring their efforts into the first episode and they'll fall off the wagon as the season goes on, but it was still nice to start off the season with so many shows where the animators are making a real creative effort.

Their sexuality isn't relevant there.

That's all well and good, but seriously, have you seen Sonico? They kind of go beyond 'big boobs' and become 'huge disproportionate tumours'.

Noragami had some good animation too and Chuu4 is KyoAni so it's a given.

If you're talking about first-episode animation, please tell me you watched SYD*. That was some top-tier stuff.

Is this a joke? Gurren Lagann, one of the most popular anime on /a/ back in 2007, fucking tanked in sales and was literally a Sunday morning program in Japan. Other shows that are still somewhat popular on /a/ today that aired in 2007 were Clannad, Kaiji, Precure, SZS, and Hidamari Sketch, and all of them are long-running series or based on prior source material. One of the only other shows heavily discussed back then was Lucky Star, which almost nobody talks about anymore because it's fucking shit.

I don't know why you think Madoka would be hushed in a year where one of the most talked about series was Kyoto Animation shit and Pretty Cure, which today still have large threads on a daily basis. Instead, it would just be Madoka and TTGL spitroasting /a/.

It's fucking SYD, that shit is overkill.
