It appears that Gintama is popular on the site MAL.

looks like nobody told OP to avoid all of the MAL community and forums.

although that would be the time when Death Note was the 1st on the 10top list, so they were retarded nevertheless!

SnK has an interesting setting that they wasted with horrific pacing/recaps and a plot that has nothing going for it but "lol, X random character was a titan all along, too!"

>being able to rank a comedy AT ALL

comedy is the lowest form of entertainment that appeals to the mind's lowest state of being, devoid of any creative reasoning or intuitive thinking. To even begin to compare something with humor to other, more serious works, is to belittle and devalue everything
>>

Only edgy teenagers think this. Any other person, from kids to the highest literary critics, will tell you that comedy is just as valid as any other genre. No one at Oxford is going "Hmph, no, this funny shit isn't worth anything.

please, it's so incredible EASY to appeal to a persons sense of humor, to make someone smile or laugh is hardly worth of merit.
But to Impress someone, to make a person think, THAT, that is worthy of praise

I am not saying there is anything wrong with comedy, or that I don't enjoy it(I do), but simply saying "it made me laugh" is hardly a compelling argument for why something should be ranked in such high regards

>ITT: it's popular, therefore, it's shit!
When will you realize that 95% of the modern media is based on Aristotle's Poetics and Longinus's On the Sublime, both of which discuss how to exploit human's emotions? Humanity is all the same. What you're doing is just an antinomiac behavior - "I don't want to be like everyone else!" and "I want/don't want to be like some particular group of people!". You're no different from the rest, and neither am I. So stop being idiots and actually discuss anime instead of shitposting.

Comedy can be intelligent and thought-provoking too, you know?
>>
>>100289047
You see, a mediocre anime differs from a "good" one (>implying there is an objective way to measure the quality of anything non-quantitative) only in that the "good" anime exploits your emotions and mindset better than the mediocre one.

The Romans called Satire the highest form of art. Take a class or two before you make these juvenile claims.

According to IMDb: Dragonball appears five times in the top 50 with more than a 1000 votes.

What do you make of that? Did Chichi have an affair after Son goku died? How was C18 able to give birth? Was Sheng Long just a deluded dream of a huge magical penis?

Also has anyone seen or heard of future boy conan? It's pretty high rated.

Catch-22
>>
Gintama isn't that bad
>>
>>100289068
Exactly,but is Gintama?

the answer to that is no, it's slap stick silly humor that appeals to the lowest common denominator

I don't think there is a single comedy that can be regarded as such since Jap humor(in anime at least) boils down to the wacky slap stick humor like Gintama, or Culture word puns like SZS, where the humor is lost in translation

and at the end of the day neither is creative or intuitive
>>
>>100289136
Ever heard of things like political cabaret?
Comedy is not by definition less intelligent than any other form of entertainment.
>>
>>100289245
I didn't watch Gintama, so I wouldn't know.
But that fuckretarded anon didn't bash Gintama, he bashed the comedy genre as a whole.

No, I'm not, and don't even use MAL anymore for 4 or so years (mostly, because I stopped caring about maintaining my watchlist), but I'm just making a point. I know that /a/ was always shitposting, I'm just trying to bring sime actual discussion to it.
>>
>>100289307
I didn't bash comedy, nor did I mean for it to come off that way.
I just feel humor as a whole is a rather cheap emotion to play off of and devalues any sort "worth' you might get from watching a show.

just today I've laughed at a bunch of silly videos, and yet it's been weeks since I was truly impressed by a "serious" video/movie/episode etc., and yet you expect me to gauge both of these on equal footing?
>>
>>100289489
The thing is that comedy is not just "silly videos" as you might think.
>>
>>100289489
Being impressed is 'worth' and being entertained is not?
>>
>>100289489
You need to get acquainted with black humor.

And by black humor I don't mean comedy by black people.
>>
Well, you would know that Gintama isn't just a slapstick comedy, right?
>>
>>100289529
yes but the very subject matter of Gintama IS.

>>100289585
it is easier to entertain me than it is to impress me, so I find the latter more "worthwhile".

>>100289611
I am not saying humor is wrong, for instance I think Welcome to the NHK was a great blend of humor mixed with "seriousness", they played off of each other very well and made the entire experience worthwhile.

It's not as funny when you don't know the characters and their personalities.

What's funny is that /a/ lets what outsiders (MAL, tumblr etc) like dictate what they should and should not enjoy. It's not so much about watching what you like (and may be good) but more like avoiding shows that undesirable people have enjoyed. Despite the belief that /a/ is superior to other internet communities it's likes and dislikes are heavily influenced by 'inferior' sites.
