Does anyone else ever feel like a huge faggot whenever they're watching the opening song of an anime? These things are just damn embarrassing to watch.
I know what you mean.
Only Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo had decent openings that weren't cringe-worthy.
I enjoy the fuck out of them.
This is bait
>Sakura Trick opening
Secondly, yeah, I'm not comfortable revealing my powerlevel, but I still love OP/EDs
I always feel like a huge faggot.
>I don't like thing!
Do you have any signs of hiv/aids yet?
Fuck off, feelshit.
Are you kidding me? As much as I love Yoko Kanno, Tank! is as corny and as it fucking gets. It's what neckbeards would say they listen to after trying to flaunt their tasteful love of jazz music.
You are one so that makes sense
How did that even becme a thing?
I feel like a faggot when I sing along with the OP/ED.
Especially when I'm driving and I stop at a stoplight. I'm worried others can hear me, but part of me hopes someone recognizes it.
I don't know, but I want it to stop.
My town has a huge international jazz festival every year, and every year my mom nags me to go and make some friends there or something.
I can't think of a reason to be embarrassed by an OP/ED. I can usually get through an entire season watching the OP/ED every episode.
>it's what neckbeards listen to
Or people from New Orleans? Or people that just LIKE jazz? I like how you're trying so hard, anon. Keep it up.
I never watch OPs or EDs and really don't understand the people who do. They are always really really fruity, usually have annoying music, and are way too loud.
It's like people who watch the intro themes to TV shows. Just fast forward.
I watch the Chuuni OP to see this.
Why should I feel shame for liking something?Because I'm a socially submissive cunt, maybe? I skip the OP only when it's a shitty one and I hate it completely.
This is hilarious considering I'm a semester away from my bachelors in jazz composition. The point of my post was not that jazz music is bad, Tank! is purposefully corny and over exaggerated. I
I recommended DTB to my normalfag friend before remembering it had that terrible OP with the giant neon text, and those retarded Linkin Park lyrics.
nigga jazz is like the only good thing the african people have created, so stfu
wow this is embarassing
tank is not even close to real jazz fucktard
it's corny as hell
>tank is not even close to real jazz
That's unfortunate, because Jazz would be better if it was more like Tank!
>feeling shame over something as petty as entertainment choices
>bachelors in jazz composition
>henneko's OP and ED
Reminder that what you are describing is fremdschämen, and that literally, objectively, scientifically, medically, pathologically speaking, autistic people cannot feel fremdschämen because they lack mirror neurons -- hence their autism and inabililty to understand human emotions, feelings, and interpersonal concepts.
This explains very well why /a/ reacts the way it does to this thread, and why they are unable to comprehend the concept of why western anime fans and a lot of anime/anime tropes in general are shameful.
In short? /a/ is full of faggots who cannot hide their power level. /a/ is full of people who think that it's O.K. to let people know you like Animu/Mangos/Basically anything that comes out of Japan, when the reality is the situation is That It Is Not OK to Let Other People Know You Like These Things Are You Are A Terrible Non-Power-Level-Concealing Weeaboo-Autist for doing so
/a/ doesn't understand what a fucking total and utter death sentence liking anime/mango is for a person's reputation and other people's respect for said person.
Not embarrassed. More like annoyed. I want more instrumental OPs. Most j-pop OPs just make me cringe.
Because I'm insecure.
Noted, but rejected.
^Pretty much this
Check out some modern big bands like Gordon Goodwin, North Texas One O'clock Lab Band, or even Yoko Kanno's The Seatbelts if you like jazz like tank!
Don't worry anon, if I surround myself with enough animus, surely poverty won't be as bad.
This is true. I like you.
>lack mirror neurons
What? I thought this "mirror neuron" phenomena was an inherent function of regular neurons.
Shit only applies if you state you love K-on and angel beats
>show em deep mature and remarkable animu anf they'll have to stfu
Even if I casually list "anime" among some other normal hobbies?
Damn. At least captcha's back to normal.
Regardless, sociopaths/psychopaths/Autists lack mirror neurons (this can be directly confirmed emprically in fucntional imaging studies, i.e. fMRI, PET, MEG/EEG. etc).
In a normal, healthy, functional person, neurons will fire in response to seeing something happen, as if *YOU* were doing said thing. I.e. if you see someone in severe grief, or pain, or hapiness, your neurons will fire in response. Of course the reaction is not nearly as much as if it happen to you yourself (watching someone say, get their hand smashed in a door, hurts less than having your hand smashed) -- but for people with dysfunctional mirror neuron systems the effect is signifncantly less if not entirely non-existant compared to a regular/nominal person.
Also there is good evidence that mirror neurons are the basis of empathy and socialization behaviors in regular people.
Basically a very short summary - if you notice, little kids around 1-3 years old are complete fucking asshole 'sociopaths'. The combination of mirror neurons making their newly developed brains feel what other people feel, along with training, discipline and punishment from their parents/elders, results in normal functioning.
I really enjoy OP's and ED's, the fuck's wrong with you OP. Are you being monitored or something? Why would you be embarrassed?
also afraid i must leave to get some sleep now
Really? Does it switch back and forth, though?
HAHA FAGGOT, I feel your pain.
>play ED song from anime for normal fags
>"You have good taste anon"
>MFW they don't realize they like animu ED
Suck it normal fags. ED related:
Except you are wrong. If you hide your power level because /a/ told you to do so, you are a fucking moron. If you show your power level because you WANT to, you are a fucking moron. Being neutral and simply treating it like a hobby is the right way to do it.
Enjoying anime is a hobby. Give ten fucks less if your mom finds out you watch it.
