It's not that watching anime is weird, it's just that every single person who watches it is weird. Even the closet otakus.

Some of you have never seen otaku no video?
>>
>>10045867
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.
baw.

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.

It also has two Yamatos as arms, and a really big drill.

>>10045101
Truly epic.

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?
>>
>>10047223
the same way SZS bashes Lucky Star
>>
>>10047028
>And the occasional anti-KyoAni references too

When? Where? In Gurren Lagann?
>>
>>10047273
Ah yeah, it was weird to see an unfunny reference anime bash another unfunny reference anime.
>>
>>10047028

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.
>>
>>10047223
Here, have this star...
FUCK YO STAR THING, NIGGA!
>>
>>10047310
SZS actually has a trace of real humor under all the references unlike Lucky Star
>>
FUCK YEAH STAR TREK REFERENCES

Also, http://www.animeigo.com/Liner/ONV.t

Possible spoilers there, though.
>>
>>10047344
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.
>>
>>10047390
Stop watching anime.
>>
>>10047273
What fucken episode was that?
>>
>>10047390
And so it begins...
>>
>>10047344
What is SZS? I want to see this Lucky Star bashing.
>>
>>10047447
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
>>
>>10047482

> funny
> Potemayo

You just lost.

>>10047473
Just the second season, Episode 4.

>>10047390
The Anime Tenchou bit was the only good thing that ever came out of Lucky Star
>>10047473
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.

>>10047520
The Anti-Spiral = Eva and other shows of its type

note that GL's supposed to be about mecha history

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.
>>
>>10047548
SZS isn't character driven, even a moron would notice that. It's making fun of social issues, like NHK without the stupid bawwwwing.
>>

Gainax never really changed much over the years, huh.
>>
>>10047548
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.
>>
>>10047586

Did you watch the live-action interview segments?
>>
>>10047646
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?
>>
>>10047706
/a/ still does

/a/ still loves it. But it's too DEEP for the newfags.

>>10047646
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.
>>10047706
/a/'s full of moeblob faggots now, try later. Unless you really enjoy arguing with elitist retards.

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.
>>
>>10047900

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?

GAINAX'D.
>>
>>10048050
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?
>>
>>10048018
>as a newfag I smart enough to know
You're either still a newfag or a troll,
you're opinion means moot
>>
>>10048096
4th wall
references
forced memes
trolling
hijacs

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
