Most epic Gainax moment.
sauce? I have found my god!
Otaku no Video
I'm seriously crying right now.
In B4 Get Out
i want to be an otaking when i grow up
It's not that watching anime is weird, it's just that every single person who watches it is weird. Even the closet otakus.
And the conclusion.
Some of you have never seen otaku no video?
I haven't, I've been sneaking away from /co/ to find out about what I've been missing out on for that past few years, and its been so much, god I've missed watching anime. I've been feeling so much happier the past few weeks since I've started watching again.
But I can't talk about it with anyone of my friends, they just don't understand. Unless its JLA or Batman TAS, they just aren't interested.
Otaku no Video is my bible.
what the hell
Shitty anime, watch Welcome to the N.H.K.
I see what you did there.
Watch NHK? The NHK anime fucking sucks you fag.
The original Starlock.
Is that truly the combination of Gunbuster and the Macross
It also has two Yamatos as arms, and a really big drill.
I wish Gainax would remake Otaku no Video but with more Gurren Lagann, FLCL, Abenobashi, Mahoromatic, and Evangelion references
And the occasional anti-KyoAni references too
How do you make an anti-reference?
the same way SZS bashes Lucky Star
>And the occasional anti-KyoAni references too
When? Where? In Gurren Lagann?
Ah yeah, it was weird to see an unfunny reference anime bash another unfunny reference anime.
Gainax and the current Otaku aren't exactly the best of friends anymore.
I'm still not sure if 2ch has gotten over being called an anus by one of the Gainax execs yet.
Here, have this star...
FUCK YO STAR THING, NIGGA!
SZS actually has a trace of real humor under all the references unlike Lucky Star
FUCK YEAH STAR TREK REFERENCES
Possible spoilers there, though.
It doesn't, heck I actually laughed more during Lucky Star(meaning 2-3 times, especially with the anime Tenchou) as during the entirety of SZS, that's to say how unfunny that shit is.
Stop watching anime.
What fucken episode was that?
And so it begins...
What is SZS? I want to see this Lucky Star bashing.
Why? There's still lots of good anime, heck 2007 was a very strong years overall. There were even some pretty funny anime like Potemayo or even Seto no Hanayome.
not this shit again
You just lost.
Just the second season, Episode 4.
The Anime Tenchou bit was the only good thing that ever came out of Lucky Star
Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. Ignore the trolls, it's one of the few anime/manga that's actually mildly funny (along with Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga) and proof that japs can actually write half decent humor
This is basically /v/ humor and it's still better than 99% animu/mango "jokes"
THE ANTI-SPIRAL IS KYOANI.
Neither Lucky Star or Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei are "funny" but each has certain properties that set it apart from the other.
for instance, Lucky Star sucks shit. The anime is bad and you should feel bad. Whatever kind of redeeming factor Lucky Star would have is completely nullified by ONE minute of regular viewing. ONE MOTHERFUCKING MINUTE.
Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei has no plot, but it has colorful characters, moreso than lucky star. Do these characters redeem the show? NO. But they do make that one show infinitely better than the festering goat tripe that is Lucky Star.
The Anti-Spiral = Eva and other shows of its type
note that GL's supposed to be about mecha history
>>10047531 /v/ humor
what's the fuck
"LOL FAT ANIME NERD IS FAT"
Potemayo is far funnier as SZS.
I never said SZS was funny, fuck face.
I didn't really like Otaku no Video. It's so...self-centered, especially the second episode, where the whole world becomes otaku and the main character more or less ascend to otaku heaven.
It's so uncritical, so unreflective. Genshiken is a much better self-portrait of otaku.
SZS isn't character driven, even a moron would notice that. It's making fun of social issues, like NHK without the stupid bawwwwing.
>>I didn't really like Otaku no Video. It's so...self-centered, especially the second episode, where the whole world becomes otaku and the main character more or less ascend to otaku heaven.
Gainax never really changed much over the years, huh.
Too bad these "colorful characters" end up being completely bland and unfunny in the long run since their stereotypes don't evolve. OH I'M SHOWING MY PANTIES, I'LL SUE YOU wasn't funny anymore after the third time.
Did you watch the live-action interview segments?
If you would have paid attention to my trolling i mentioned the fact that the colorful characters do not redeem the show.
now you just sound stupid.
Remembered when /a/ loved SZS?
/a/ still does
/a/ still loves it. But it's too DEEP for the newfags.
hey nice work pointing out the weakest running 'joke' in the show. It's mostly a pisstake of anime panty shots, but admittedly an annoying and unfunny one
The best parts = taking seemingly insignificant and unimportant parts of life, behaviors and tendencies and and pretty much ripping them apart and milking them for all their worth.
/a/'s full of moeblob faggots now, try later. Unless you really enjoy arguing with elitist retards.
We still do.
wait. what are we doing again?
troll ratings are an inherently trollish thing to post
Damn Shimbo, I hope he won't pollute the new Hidamari with its blackboard/references shits.
The problem with Lucky Star is that it's Azumanga for the newfags.
Azumanga had fleshed out characters and involving slice of life comedy, the likes of which nobody had seen before. To us, its a miracle of the universe.
Admittedly, it is a pretty dull show.
HOWEVER, since lucky star came along, a cheap imitation that derives it's jokes from outside sources, the newfags who saw this are about as attracted to it as the newfags who saw azumaga first. They really believe that lucky star is funny, and have been tainted to think that way from here on out.
Its a crude form of mind control, really.
I saw Azumanga a year ago and found it unspectacular, but even as a newfag I smart enough to know that's because almost every school related anime since has copied Azumanga's style, and there are other shows that just copy the whole plot scenario verbatim (Minami-ke).
Lucky Star wouldn't have gotten any notice if it wasn't Kyoto Animation.
How a thread could start so good and end so bad?
Because Otaku no Video was bad and you should feel bad. Also, posting how Lucky Star and SZS were bad with their own otaku references isn't so much deriving from the topic.
If you faggots hate referencan animu so much then why isn't They Are My Noble Masters being trolled?
>as a newfag I smart enough to know
You're either still a newfag or a troll,
you're opinion means moot
all of those where good ideas, and funny and lulz worthy, but they stoped being cool and awesome when they became overused, it's sure awesome to watch some anime then some small but obvious reference happens and you go "holy shit, awesome", but in lucky star they over-use it, and you become tired of it
>Because Otaku no Video was bad
