/a/, why does shit like Space Dandy get so much hype but other shit like Hagure Yuusha no Estetica gets no love (or season 2 for that matter...still pissed about that)?
Also, General Underappreciated thread.
>>
Because this looks like some escapist "Im gonna be the big righteous hero" that the autistic weeaboo down the hall would watch.
>>
Nigga, that shit bombed
>>
>>100315947
Nah Hagure was good from both an action and ecchi point of view. There was enough boobs, and fights, the main character was badass, it has all the elements of a good ecchi
>>
Since when is dandy not getting shat on? threads are dead
Go be retarded somewhere else, also, general?
>>
>>100316744
As I was browsing /a/ (when this thread was created) there were 3 threads about "how great Space Dandy is" and how it's "changing anime". I wanna throw up. Everywhere I look is Space Dandy.
and yes, general underappreciated animes. Like Hagure, Manyuu, and surprising (although this could be me), Hellsing.
>>
>>100316971
Read the threads, people are making fun of the OPs inside all of those, me included.
Don't make generals.
>>
>>100315172
That can't look any more generic even if it tried.
>>
My under appreciated anime nominee is Scrapped Princess. This is an anime that has as much going for it as names like Eureka 7 (which I also like) or Last Exile (also a bit under appreciated but not as good). Even Lucky Star featured this anime in Japanese Anime Store Bargain Bins. It doesn't even get any love on its home turf. If I've peaked your interest, let me list some good points.

#1. Good writing.
#2. Likable Characters across the board (Not a whiny Shinji clone in the whole bunch (looking at Renten Thurston)
#3. High Fantasy Setting
#4. Good action scenes
#5. Longer than 13 eps shorter than 50 eps.
#6. Very strong female leads and side characters.

Srsly, this show needs more love.
>>
>>100317071
Not all though and that's what bothers me.
>>100317080
I just used that cause I was talking about that anime so if fucking related. Get it? jeezus /b/ is smarter than you inbreds.
>>
>>100317124
I'll add it to my list. Right under Noragami
>>
Sankarea is never getting a second season. It actually disappoints me.
>>
Another anime that needs more love is Needless. The action isn't the best, but it's good. I'd describe it as post apocalyptic x-men duking it out for control of the wastelands with GRATUITOUS (you have no idea, it's so gratuitous the all caps isn't overkill) amounts of ecchi fan service. Lots of loli fan service too, if you like that sort of thing. It's Shonen, Ecchi, Action, Comedy at it's finest.

Best MC only one on par with Kazuma from Kaze
>>
These kinds of shows get overlooked because they look low quality and generic as possible. And that's generally a correct assumption.

It was an anime version of Fight Club with bentos. Why the fuck did it do shitty?
>>
>>100317375
Needless got milked of all the love you can imagine.

The anime (even with its madhouse flaws) was pretty entertaining. The hype for the manga got big. And even with the crazy ending, people are still waiting for a second part/scanlations of the prequel.
>>
>>100316536
No I mean financially it bombed
>>
>>100315172
Nobody's even translating the novels ;_;

>>100318046
Also this

>>100315172

This shit was so fucking bad.

Anyone thinking he was a good lead needs their brain checked. He's worse than Kirito.
>>
>>100315172

If there was "the most generic and edgy looking MC" award this guy would win with no problems.
>>
Any faggot that would rather have a beta self-insert than Akatsuki...Oh wait, I'm on /a/
>>
>>100318151
Fans of the LN hated it.
>>
I remember watching episode 1 of that and thinking that it was close to as generic and uninteresting as it could get. At least Dandy has something unique going for it. Hagure Yuusha was complete garbage and anyone who saw episode 1 and thought "Yeah, I'll give this a chance" has really bad judgement or taste.

You just countered your own argument.
>>
There were people who talked about Hagure Yuusha when it aired, and it was predominantly negative.
That Summer 2012 season was strange. Lots of really shit, really forgettable shows that would never have gotten picked up by anyone in other seasons, but people ended up trying them because there was just so little popular stuff available.
>>
>>100317124
Another under appreciated.Its Slayer with fan service. All girl are the best.
>>
>>100318583
Why the MC is not self-insert?
>>
I'd like to add Highschool DxD (now hear me out first). Although I know people do like it, it never gets any attention until someone brings up something about it. There are never appreciation threads for it and there should be. It's a great anime and I can't wait for a season 3!

Well the next BD volume could bring some threads depending on who the surprise character is. The problem for some is that after the second season ended the threads just turned to the mobage and there aren't waifu wars to at least keep threads alive.

I know! The waifu wars would be good. There was one about 2 weeks ago. It was mainly Koneko, hardly any Akeno. Very sad
>>
>>100327028
Are you blind? There are threads for it all the damn time.
>>
>>100331940
Not when I'm on. Usually when I'm on it's all Space Dandy. Either I have horrible timing or /a/ is even shittier than before. Could be both I don't konw

There's the difference between an alpha MC and a good show. Just because it had an alpha MC doesn't mean the show was good.

I said it twice because I don't think you faggot understand it.
>>
>>100317124

IIRC, beginning was good. Ending wasn't so good.

SHIT like this gets more seasons because the male lead is a fucking weaboo.

>>100315172
Good shows like this DOESN'T.

That's why I only watch hentai anime. Atleast the male lead gets the pussy.
>>
>>100315172
The only good thing about Hagure Yuusha was that one gif. You know the one.
>>
>>100336590

No I don't. Go on...
