What is the absolute most plebest thing you have done in regards to anime/manga?
I haven't seen NGE and have no plans to.
I try not to watch Code Geass simply because of its' name. It's sounds too wannabe deep.
Posted on this thread.
Well, it actually is tryhard generic wannabe deep so you are not too far from the truth.
>read the silmarillion
>no hobbits doing hobbit things
I watched S;G and thought it was good.
It really isn't.
I watched a live viewing of the first Gurren Lagann movie at an anime con. The movie got to the part where Yoko smooched Kamina and a bunch of lardwhales were like BOOO and NOOO and when Kamina kissed Yoko back I was clapping and going YEEEEEAAAAAAH.
Yeah fuck those lardwhales.
Marathoned SAO on Christmas starting at 3 am
dear god you NEED help.
I went to watch the Madoka movie. Sat next to a 40 year old mother dressing as Mami and had a hard on for half the movie watching her bare thighs.
>The movie got to the part where Yoko smooched Kamina and a bunch of lardwhales were like BOOO and NOOO
Did they expect anything to be different from the show?
Enjoyed watching StrikerS
Posting on /a/
Watched KlK and Space Dandy.
Both are shit.
Actually found deep meaning an Monogatari.
Watched Naruto and Bleach. Including the fillers
I talked about Watamote with a guy from /v/ at my college anime club.
I bet you think toradora is a good love story.
I streamed Gundam SEED Destiny dubbed.
Liked the Naruto manga, too bad it got to utter shit like the way it did and I'm not even talking about the filler infested anime. I genuinely feel sorry about what happened.
Wait, no. That's not it. I actually read all of the Inuyasha manga.
only the best
i argue about Evangelion on /a/
i watched anime for as long as i can remember, but it wasn't until about a week ago that i watched any Hayao Miyazaki movie ever
I subscribe to Crunchyroll and watch watch streaming anime on my iPad3!
That's not pleb, that's a tragedy.
>not streaming anime on your phone in bed with comfy blankets every night
watching and liking clannad?
I actually let /a/ influence my opinions.
Stop typing like a retard.
>I try not to watch Code Geass simply because of its' name. It's sounds too wannabe deep.
Both of you are wrong and you should feel bad.
I watched this because Netflix recommended it
Post on /a/.
I don't see what the big deal is. This day and age we're mostly apathetic about
>Gundam SEED Destiny
Probably watching some mega-mainstream stuff like Pokemon or Dragon Ball.
I enjoyed Toradora.
i know i watched spirited away, princess mononoke, my neighbor totoro, and howls moving castle in one night. and then i cried and wonder why i waited so long
>Watching dubs on Youtube
>Watch parts 1/3 and 2/3, look for 3/3
>Can only find subbed versions
>Find a different website
Don't lie you all did this
Careful anon, it's cool to hate those now on modern /a/.
I only watch Anime dubbed.
Is SAO like a 6/10 anime?
I'm looking for a good english dubbed comedy series/action
I read Naruto.
I can't. I'm lying in bed holding my iPad3 over my head with my fingers while typing on the glass with my thumbs.
Code Geass was my first and still favorite anime.
I must be really shit at finding series because nothing has topped it for me yet.
You're not alone. Although I do watch subs if it's just too great to miss out on like Aria.
And SAO is shit all around. Avoid it.
I'm afraid you have to bear that burden alone /a/non.
>Only version on YouTube is Japanese with Spanish subtitles
>Part 2/3 is not available because due to a copyright infringement by FUCK YOU
Okay, I just heard it was pretty edgy, especially with all the "crawling in my skin" youtube videos posted here
>dubs everywhere in this thread, implying that post-90s dubs are something to be ashamed of
Fuck my life.
every single time
I didn't, because I live in a shithole and until 2009 the only way I had to watch anime was to buy a DVD with the downloads from someone who lived in a city big enough to have internet, and that was IF someone like that was around AND had a DVD with the show you wanted.
Now I moved to one of said cities because fuck dial-up in 2014.
Until 2010 all I had ever watched was the first FMA, Lucky Star, Blood+ and Excel Saga.
Watched about a hundred episodes of Bleach streaming.
I have never watched a show that aired before 2008.
I only watched 5 episodes of Lucky Star.
I enjoyed SnK.
You better go watch FLCL faggot
When I started watching anime I watched my first 3 shows on justdubs.net
I watched Naruto Shippuden on Myspace video
I think I watched about thirty or so episodes like that, I don't know why I quit actually
Call other normalfags.
Like, on a phone or something?
It's pretty good.
I don't like Azumanga Daioh.
Isn't that one of the better dub communities, though?
No that was fucking horrible looking back on it. The quality was ass and whenever you couldn't go back/forward in the video without it lagging a ton. It also took 20 minutes to load a video which was retarded.
Watch anime with vlc.
I still do
The only good things about SAO are its pilot and animation.
I have never seen the evangelion movies, only the original series which I didn't like.
Probably stay subscribed to Crunchyroll for around a year, still posting on /a/ all that time. Only unsubscribed when they started to have constant delays. The last Valvrave delay made me cancel, which was like a month ago or so.
I'm sorry for helping kill fansubbing.
Re-watched Ah My Goddess this year... on youtube.
Shitpost with the hairclip joke of shinka nibutani,
I hope your favorite color is green then, since you'll be seeing a lot of it.
There's still hope, anon.
Hell no clannad is top teir shit
The first 80 or so anime I watched were either RMVB or from YouTube.
I accidentally subscribed to Crunchyroll for 6 months before I noticed that they were billing my account.
I should have known the free membership was a trap. I was sure I'd cancelled it, too.
Meh, I just heard it was pretty good before the shitstorm and infighting with the admins.
Any alternatives for a dub heretic?
i enjoyed code geass. the first half at least
I watched Mirai Nikki from beginning to end. The pink girl was pretty funny but it went from shit to diarrhea sprayed all over water tank during the dog episode with that guy who looked like Kaworu who was literally gay for the mc.
Clannad is one of the few things Kyoanus did right. Nothing wrong with liking it.
Although be sure to check out the VN.
The problem with Clannad is that you have to watch the first half.
Joined an anime club, eats Japanese snacks on a daily basis, and talks about /a/ to someone else who goes on /a/.
It's not too late.
Yeah try stop being a dubeating fag.
I never cared for the community and I only watched around 3 shows there, and it was a year and a half ago now so I don't really remember it.
>eats Japanese snacks on a daily basis
As long as you aren't just gobbling box after box of pocky this isn't really something to judge you for.
But you've seen Hen Zemi, which makes you automatically cool.
Same, but then I read the manga and the anime seemed like a really poor adaptation. The manga I really enjoy actually.
Mine probably is this
>watch anime for around 5 years, have your average /a/nons powerlevel, only start downloading shows last season.
>I watched everything I've ever watched off of a streaming site and had to deal with shit subs or go to a different site
>Still don't really know how to go about finding good subs and just stick to HorribleSubs for my recent stuff and subbers like gg for other things.
Feel free to hate me, all you want /a/. I hate myself too.
Pic related it's the show that made me start downloading over streaming. inb4 "shit taste detected."
I have. I'm currently doing the tomoyo it's a wonderful life vn. I was quite surprised from the ecchi due to the fact that it's part of the clannad franchise, which has little fan service
I only stick to Horriblesubs because I'm too impatient to wait for anyone else.
Horriblesubs is perfectly functional and if you're really that obsessively concerned about having 100% authenticity in your cartoons, well, learn moon already.
Enjoyed SnK, I know it's overly dramatic but I still like it.
HS is ok, but sometimes they really wind up terrible video quality wise
Go look at space dandy ep 3 and you'll see what I mean
I don't really like Pocky that much anyway. I'll eat chocolate flavor, but I don't understand people that will endure their $3 box of pocky just to seem cool. Also, Ramune. I hate Ramune.
I've never understood what's so bad about VLC.
Maybe it's just too late for me.
I eat it occasionally when my little brother buys some. I can't imagine eating a shit ton of it, though.
Get out you pleb
Being on /a/
I watch adaptations without reading the source. If there's an adaptation of something and I've already read the source I won't bother with it unless I really like it. I think it gets boring when the same shit happens in both the source and adaptation.
No need to be a delusional faggot, anon. It's not like subs are any more authentic.
>thinking Japanese people talk like cartoon characters
Posted recs to people asking for them on /tv/ because they "don't want the lolishit that /a/ watches"
>App made for streaming
>Not being used for streaming
It's like using cola to hand wash your clothes instead of water+soap.
I wasn't able to download anime until I graduated high school last year. They gave us school issued computers and wouldn't let us torrent anything. They had blocks up and would check. Couldn't afford a laptop, my parents wouldn't get me one until college, since I already had a laptop.
Dude I get like a box of 9 packs with like 7 sticks each for $3. Where the fuck are you going to get your asian shit?
got me confused, .rmvb?
I imagine Japs must laugh their asses off at the foreigners who got all their Japanese practice from moeshit, and then go around Japan talking like a cutesy little girl.
i enjoy Horrible Subs
they literal translations are a real boon to my moon learning
Didn't "get" Madoka.
The only thing I haven't streamed is Naruto
I'm too lazy for moon. I genuinely thought HorribleSubs was decent, I see some spelling errors but only rarely. It was only until someone said here said they were shit that I found out. Before I just settled for whatever the dicks the uploader put up. /a/ is rather unhelpful for torrenting shows. gg was just something I found was good after watching Daily Lives by the people who fansubbed it.
I still use VLC too. Surprisingly it isn't as bad as /a/ makes out. At least not on the newest update. I have no idea what a codec is and I feel like the cancer of /a/, even though I have as much experience as everyone else.
I still read the Bleach manga.
>not using a VPN
Did you not have a desktop? Fucking poorfag. A decent used Thinkpad is like $200.
It's like a Japanese man talking like Elmer Fudd.
Hilarious at first, but then depressing.
I'm talking about kids that buy Pocky from F.Y.E. I've seen Almond Pocky for $6. I complained to the cashier who promptly made a pun about how "Yeah, it's 'nuts'." I usually go to my local asian supermarket. Sadly, when I was younger, I wasn't aware of asian supermarkets and would just go to the mall.
>gg was just something I found was good
use 3x3 threads for anime recommendations
>I complained to the cashier
Why would you complain to a cashier at a nationwide chain about pricing?
What the fuck are they supposed to do about it?
My parents weren't even poor, as we could afford a school with laptops. Just didn't want to spend the extra money for my anime.
Almond crush master race.
Volunteering for the hentai dub at an anime convention.
>"Yeah, it's 'nuts'."
I've seen every episode of each yugioh series. It all started when I got internet and found out I could watch GX subbed online. Since that many years ago watching a new ygo ep every week has been the one weekly ritual I never dropped, even if the actual show got really bad. Like, awful bad, even for yugioh.
I didn't even know what it was made for though, I only knew it was better than the default Windows MP.
Gonna try out MPC + CCCP.
krogerfag here. We mock you behind your back for buying these.
It was more like, "It's crazy how expensive the almond pocky is here." I wasn't telling her to change it or anything.
Do people just stand around making orgasm noises to do that. Are they like masturbating while they're recording?
I've read every Naruto chapter and I keep telling myself "Surely, this MUST be almost over"
But 3x3 cancer was made for recommendations.
this is because you're all unhelpful as fuck. At the minute I'm just trying fucking anything. I have [gg]subs for Tokyo Ravens [URW] for Chuu2 season one and [Mochi] for BakaTest and I have absolutely no fucking clue if they're any good or not. I heard URW was pretty good because of a fansub review I found on Google. Otherwise I just stick to HS.
watch koe de oshigoto/
If it wasn't made to play video files, it wouldn't fucking play video files.
The fact that it's even possible to watch an .mkv with it means that the creators intended that as a capability of the program.
>gg was just something I found was good
>gg better than HS
>i still use VLC
I do the same on other boards to just keep people out of /a/. It's less of a hassle.
>it's YOUR FAULT I'm a retard!!!
I didn't want to watch shows like K-ON at the beginning... only edgy shows
also, I watched Toradora and Clannad
>Don't lie you all did this
>Watch parts 1/3 and 2/3, look for 3/3
>because of a fansub review I found on Google
[gg] is shit, you should've used [sage] for Danshi Koukousei. Other than that it's just you being a retard that can't lurk.
>this is because you're all unhelpful as fuck.
If you require someone to help you watch anime, nobody really wants you here.
FLCL is in my top 5 anime of all time. I own the US, UK and JAP versions of the BDs. I prefer the dub.
I always go for the main girl in every series.
The others are always shit
Wow, so that's what people get their cocks in a knot over?
>not taking 2 minutes to install MPC-HC for 10 bit playback
Are you retarded?
I watched multiple series on youtube.
That has nothing to do with the players, the one on the right is just full RGB. Fucking retard.
Let my American neckbeard friend get me into it. God he had the shittiest taste.
That's just the visual difference.
Only that preferring the dub part is pleb, FLCL is one of the best. The dub kind of detracts from the meaning and fudges a lot of the jokes.
I have told someone that one of my hobbies was watching anime.
Yes, yes, I know. I did this only because this was someone I wasn't likely to have much common ground with anyways and I wanted to make casual polite conversation for a few minutes.
I actually paid full price for shitty anime released by ADV like Happy Lesson and Goemon.
Only the best quality for our chinese cartoons.
A difference is a difference.
it's like you didn't just read my post about me hating myself for only just torrenting after 5+ years of streaming.
And thanks mate, even you know that everyone out of this site is cancerous as fuck and will either likely stream or be one of those "lol i am so kawaii xDDDDDD" retards. I can't find help anywhere so I'm just finding subs from everywhere and just watching those.
Is this really what you all did?
On further inspection. I have [sage]. I just had [gg] for Tokyo Ravens because I was told it was decent for it.
Thanks. Like I said, I just didn't tell people I streamed and it was all fine.
And someone actually did help. I'll do it now then.
Maybe it doesn't matter if you're a massive pleb who watches anime on a 20" laptop.
Becoming a regular on /a/
I posted in this thread
I watched TTGL on Veoh while it was airing.
Here's a better question.
Are any of you actually embarrassed by these "pleb" things or do you consider them mistakes that you learned and grew from by improving your taste and power level?
I watched some 400 episodes of Naruto, 200 episodes of Inuyasha, and 300 episodes of bleach.
At least it was in elementary/ early middle school. God I want to smack my previous self so bad.
I cosplayed as Yachiru in high school when I was 16 years old.
I've watched every episode of Naruto + Shippuden save the fillers back in 2009/10. To this day, I still don't understand why the fuck I did that
I started watching more anime than live action films. Thankfully I'm now over that extremely childish and pathetic plebeian phase.
Revealed my power level to my roommate, who claimed to love anime. Naruto. And then I bought the fighting videogame to play it with him.
Watched dubs with one girl I wanted to date. But I was brother-zoned.
Bought a magazine with Bible Black DVD in my local newsstand.
And I've hugged my elder sister because of /a/ thread.
Does it weigh as much as a fat newborn?
Bitch, that aint no imouto
VERY overrated though.
I wouldn't know, I'm a patrician who only watches full HD material on a 50" plasma with no additional light sources in the room and I still feel bad about the fact that I don't own a projector.
I know, but I'm poor pleb with no imouto.
I would like to say this is what happened for me. (but I'm the 5+ year streamer guy in this thread) my tastes have improved dramatically. I really liked Katekyo when I first watched it. Even watched it through twice. On looking back it's the shittest show I've likely ever seen. And the shittest manga I ever read. (I felt inclined to read the manga at a later date to see how it actually ended)
Hype doesn't really get to me. It did however ruin Bebop for me, though.
>I'm a patrician who only watches full HD material on a 50" plasma with no additional light sources in the room
I bought 250€ headphones plus a headphone amp for another 200€ and I pretend there is a difference to the stuff you get for like 50€
I don't even regret it.
I don't think it's just the colors. You'll also notice that VLC is a lot more blurred than MPC. Compare the HUD in the background of gundam
I liked Gundam dubs
That's Bebops fault for only having 6 good episodes. Hell, the best part of it was the movie, the series to me was just above average.
I read mango on mangapark.
the difference is there, as long as you don't buy some stupid overpriced shit like beats
there's a difference between paying for quality and paying for brand name
I hope you're not insinuating there is no quality difference between a AKG 701 and a pair of some cheap headphones.
I read manga online, don't see the need to download it unlike anime
The best headphones I ever saw were some girl's I knew from college. Noise cancelling bluetooth headphones. Dunno how they did it but there was a switch that she said did something to the air around you and made it so your music was clearer.
I don't know anything about headphones, though so I couldn't tell you what it did or how it did it specifically.
Unless you're using Batoto or Dynasty or some other site that gives full resolution images, you're getting shitty quality, and should commit sudoku.
But did they help with rotational velocidensity?
I don't need a 2000000 dpi scan to read a fucking comic
I read MGX for like a year because /a/ liked it and I needed some boner material to keep me going.
Good thing there are no scans like that.
I have an app for manga and light novels on my tablet.
The manga reader I use
The light novel reader I use (It's Baka-Tsuki's)
I.. Uh, uhm... What?
So some 800x550 jpeg artifacted and watermarked out the ass is OK?
That's like watching a 480p stream.
Get the fuck out.
I have a Konoha forehead protector.
>koe de oshigoto
I do right now and don't know what the fuck is going on
okay there is a difference, I was exaggerating.
But I'm pretty sure headphones are a good example for diminishing returns and the difference is not worth spending 10 times more money on them.
Of course you might argue that it will always be a subjective matter but unless you're super rich it's just an outrageous amount of money for what you get.
rotational velocidensity is a way to refer to psuedoscience. He's saying the headphones thing doesn't actually work
I've bought one of those like 7 years ago, still have it somewhere
I streamed and still sometimes stream anime.
pic sorta related
He probably is using Batoto
I used to watch anime I torrented of the piratebay that were .avi and I played them in Windows Media Player. To this day this is the only way I've watched NGE TV series.
I dunno. I could tell the difference, this switch they flicked dulled the sound around me pretty well. I have no idea what black magic she pulled but it was like I was deafened. (she didn't even put the music on it was just a noise cancel kinda thing) and then the music played clearer when she'd put it on.
>gay sex with hats on
I do this, but
at least try to maintain standards
streaming is terrible in all forms, and you should feel bad for doing it
i liked elfen lied with it aired
I watch my anime on a 60'' screen with surround sound system.
I'm not really sure if it would be considered pleb, but most of you guys seem to say that watching on the computer is the only way. Pls enlighten me /a/
I marathoned SAO S2 and liked it. I particularly enjoyed the romance element, and felt overall that it was better than S1.
Elfen Lied was decent+
I still know all the Naruto hand seals, I had Ichigo's hollow mask and I thought that Death Note was the darkest manga could get.
not it wasnt
But it hasn't even aired yet.
I've tried tablet apps before, but the pages always take ~10 seconds to load.
Computer hooked up to TV is the only way.
I was part of the anime club back in high school.
I've since fixed my behavior.
I download deadfish encodes and watch them in my ipad at night.
I put it on a usb key instead.
I watch most anime series through streaming.
That and I plan to watch Naruto Shippuuden and Bleach—filler arcs only.
I've streamed this for 10 hours while reading stuff
Were you an active member, or did you just show up once and never come back?
I don't think you understand what pleb means.
I'm up to a few days worth of this on repeat
I watched Disappearance (again) with a girl at a convention and bawwed my eyes out at the end of it.
No, I was an active member, which is to say I showed up and watched crap with them. It wasn't a very active club in terms of activities. Also, they were all plebs, including the adviser (who was also a bitch). Most of the members from back then that I've met again since remain plebs. I quit the club because I was tired of watching Fruits Basket reruns every semester.
Polite sage for blogshit.
I skipped all parts of Jojo and i'm reading Part 7 right now
not this one, Most download from batoto, but sometimes you get them from shitty sites, but you download them to your tablet and can read them on the bus or something. You can't pick where you download from. But it's pretty fast. You can just stick to downloading to PC though because you may get unlucky and have a "MANGAREADER.COM" watermark slapped onto your mango. But all in all I think it's pretty decent. Especially if you're a busybody. I specifically like reading the light novels on the bus since it's a great way to pass time though.
Spoiler for blogshit
Once read Prison School on the bus. Got some strange looks and realised people could see what I was reading due to the reflection on the window so the bus found out I was reading some sort of softcore porn.
what do you even?
>He still hasn't taken that website down
Talk about dedication.
I watch Space Dandy dubbed.
I use mangafox to bookmark the manga I'm reading. I'm too lazy to fill a MAL.
Also I only download only the stuff I like a lot. Everything else I stream/read online.
Several years ago I would make hateful posts about Naruto (on other boards, not /a/) and constantly derail threads about it, even though I didn't watch it.
Finally got around to watching
it, and got bored and stopped watching a bit into the Chuunin exams. What I watched honestly wasn't really bad; I'm assuming things get way worse afterwards?
Clannad After Story is and always will be my favorite anime.
where can i get a download of that
Download Commie's release
It has dual-audio
I used to post on some shitty anime forum and made some embarrassing posts
The exams were the best part of Naruto. It goes all downhill from there and doesn't stop going.
I just couldn't make it past this.
I used to stream dubs, then /a/ showed me the light. Thank you /a/.
>I post on some shitty anime forum and make embarassing posts
there ya go, friend
Fuck, you're right. At least I'm anonymous here.
That's not pleb, that's just nonsense.
really though, why?
them eyes though...
Me too, Now I download my dubs
People keep telling that Part 7 is so good so i just skipped all of them
I used to think Mio was best girl
Arakawa UtB is a poor mans Bakermonogatari.
It is, but so are the other parts
Once per year I get out my old computer from middle school and go through my old favorites list for anime I saw on streaming sites and youtube and watch it just to remind myself why I don't do that anymore.
when i was a kid I ripped my own copies of Evangelion.
Looking back, they were terrible.
>mpeg 4 video
>used some shitty DVD ripper program that was shit
>mpeg 2 audio
>112 kbps audio
>100 MB per episode
>movie ripped from non-renewal disk
I may as well have made them .rmvb
I love how this whole thread consists of just "I watched a popular anime that aired in the last few years so that's pleb"
God I hate you all.
I tried, but got bored while reading Part 1
I used to download OST one track at a time.
And in just a few short years the name Daiz became known.
Well what the fuck do you consider pleb faggot?
Probably liking Kill la Kill and saving it 'saved anime' non ironically.
what we will see in these threads a year from now
Watched High School of the Dead
I liked it for the story
This was probably back in 2006-2007
The computer I did that on could only transcode the movie to that format at about 30fps, so I was basically sitting there for an entire watchthrough just converting it so I could save is and not have to worry about having to take the DVDs back out of the library again
My older sister used to love Death Note, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Ouran High School Host Club. She made herself a FMA jacket and ate Hello Panda all the time. She now hates anime. She goes on tumblr and reddit and is a men's right activist and all she does is complain about feminism. I can't tell which is worse.
who shit are you me? Only difference is I started at 4ish
I streamed anime back in the mid 2000s, before /a/ was around to steer me straight.
I've never paid for streaming, but streaming in general is probably the plebest way to watch, especially if you stream because your computer can't handle video playback or your internet can't handle the download.
I've watched the Les Miserables anime as a joke, enjoyed it, and finished the series.
what if you stream 720/1080p? When it's available?
I sometimes go on MAL to read Veronin's reviews.
I don't think you understand the rage against streams.
captcha: shame rootelys
Tell my boyfriend to watch anime when he never has and told him that Snk is good and on netflix
Tell her she should check her privilege.
Yep. It's quite amusing. It's based off the book, not the musical, so the story is good.
Thank you, now I have something to watch this afternoon.
I did this last year.
With the Russian dub of Haruhi, until I finally figured out I could Google the series in Japanese to find a torrent.
>can't make it with one arm
What a loser
Well its one of the best anime ever created Probably top 5 clearly superior to evangelion
Yup. He let his dad beat him into submission and doesn't know to wrap his dick.
Not exactly MC material.
Full pleb. If you want the good quality resolution, just download. In this age of cheap storage and affordable hardware, there's no reason to stream.
No shit? I'm giving this a download. What subs did you use kind sir?
it was probably just playing an inverted signal from a microphone outside of the headphones.
That's how most active noise cancellation is
Moved to Japan?
It's actually pretty good. Maybe a bit dramatic, but still underrated.
Well that's good to know, thanks, /a/non.
is streamed 1080p different from downloaded 1080p?
Also i'm too lazy to download
You can't possibly be that new.
I didn't start frequenting /a/ until late 2012 but even in 2008 I watched TTGL subbed from a torrent, or maybe it was a whole bunch of rapidshare DDL links. I was 15
jesus fucking christ
Of course it is. What do you think bitrate is?
Why are these people are allowed to post on /a/? They're worse than recfags because they believe their arguments on anime are actually valid.
>dat ginger kid below the stream
Jesus Christ, how horrifying
>Too lazy to download
2/10, I am actually responding.
I have the cheapest cable connection available in my area and still only takes a few minutes tops to torrent anime and maybe a few days for a 12-episode 1080p series.
How lazy to you have to be?
If I think an anime will get a dub, I'll wait patiently for it.
If there's not gonna be a dub, I prefer gg, when available, and watch their releases in VLC.
If gg's not doing it, I'll stream off Crunchyroll.
I still haven't seen Chuu2koi because I'm waiting for Sentai's release. I'll be watching MM! soon because its dub is due to come out. Can't wait for the SnK dub!
my fucking heart
What does your internet speed have to do with being lazy?
From my experience, lazy people don't like to wait for downloads, so I figured I'd mention that my connection is bad and still manage to download anime in an acceptable period of time
Lazy can be not wanting to go through the trouble of waiting for it to download.
Isn't downloading better though? Then, you can watch it even when there's no wi-fi.
Streamed One Piece, several times.
I watched everything except filler, no skipping
Gone to and enjoyed several anime conventions.
for me the lazy part is looking for the torrent; once i've found it i don't have to do any more work. Not wanting to wait would be being impatient.
It doesn't matter. If they're streaming, they're downloading.
Like the spoiler part implied, it was an unusual situation.
>I prefer gg, when available
You make it sound as though gg works on more than one in twenty new shows.
Are they good? Never had them
Which is why people saying they're too lazy is fucking dumb.
I have a crunchy roll account and enjoy its convenience.
I can't find the motivation to learn how to RSS.
I'm more surprised by the fact that a convention actually took place in Detroit, let alone an anime one.
How would I know?
I watched something on crunchyroll. Im pretty clean.
which means you're 17 now. UNDERAGE ALERT
REALLY enjoyed Btooom!
It doesn't work that way, true the data is being stored on your PC, but it won't be in encoded in the same format as if you actually downloaded an episode from a sub-group's web page
I used to download anime, resize and convert them make them playable on my 480x320 mediaplayer.
>learn how to RSS
Yes it does. Which is why it's fucking dumb to say they're too lazy to download.
Its in downtown detroit which is actually pretty safe.
It brings a lot of tourism too so they up the security.
Walking down the river-walk with friends is both safe and a fun view.
Taking the people mover at 11 PM is a little scary though. Though the worst thing I saw were just drunk chicks on a bachelorette party being stupid as fuck and 2 black guys asking a narutard questions about naruto.
This annoying weaboo keeps trying to get me to watch One Piece and claims that it's amazing. She made me watch a video of a character that was abused so much that she always smiles. I laughed because of the story and the character's face and she started crying and calling me an asshole.
I still use Mangafox's bookmark feature as an aggregator to keep track of what gets updated, then go to the translators site to get the actual release.
I watched it because I hated myself that particular weekend.
I regret everything.
I once kept up with the Naruto Shippuden anime.
>Watching One Piece
>Not reading it
I watched and enjoyed the dubs of NHK, Baccano, Steins;Gate, and Eva.
Oh, and I watch ecchi.
Is the manga any better? Anything this weaboo tries to get me to watch just makes me want to avoid it at all costs.
Why not just use baka?
Getting a file dumped into your harddrive from streaming doesn't require the same steps as finding a torrent and downloading through a client, which intimidates some streamfags.
I'm not saying that you're wrong, just that there are different reasons they might avoid downloads.
Watch Pokemon with my little brother.
But Baccano has a good dub.
I sometimes watch anime on Hulu Plus and Crunchyroll. Hulu Plus actually has pretty good and obscure shows on it, or at least obscure to the general western anime fanbase.
The only one I'll judge you for is the Eva one. That one was shit.
Nothing wrong with that.
Unless he's like...18
I watched an episode of Kill me Baby
Toei can't animate worth shit when it isn't in an arc-ending fight. Every other time it's embarrassing to watch.
But if you haven't read the manga yet then it will be a major time commitment catching up for 700+ chapters.
I almost never pay for anime, but I got myself a crunchyroll subscription.
I live in the US though so I'm on eeji modo.
>Hulu Plus has Senran Kagura and Fist of the North Star
He is 8, we watched the new one dubbed.
The Manga is way better.
One Piece has amazing world building and adventure feel to it.
Yeah, after the chase for Sasuke starts one of the biggest fillers ever in anime that doesn't ends until Shippuden.
I'd say that endless filler was the beginning of the end.
Thinking Cowboy Bebop is a masterpiece.
I've considered streaming lately, but only on my phone for downtime in public because I leave my house for class.
Just typing this makes my hate myself for being such a pleb
It's because of the music, rest was alright but nothing special.
Bravo, you finally moved on.
I watched the Fate/Stay Night anime.
I thought that just because of the movie and the music, then I got around to actually watching the series and was very disappointed.
I didn't watch Welcome to the NHK until yesterday
i loved it
>I really believe that Horrible Subs are much better than Commie
>Went to anime party and hang out with land whales I was 15 then
>Used to be really into Death Note fandom, wrote shitty fanfiction
>Drew shitty fan art
>Had a blog where I wrote about anime SERIOUSLY
>Had a Chuuni syndrome
>Enjoyed lot's of shitty shows like Chaos;Head unironicaly
>Still don't know how 3x3 threads work
>Still don't know how RSS works and too lazy to learn
You've suffered so much, yet you still watch anime. Very impressive. Some become so embarrassed of their past that they stop watching anime.
>all these streamfags
>all these faggots who are too lazy to torrent
You all need to kill yourselves.
W-were you a Dark Flame Master?
>Still don't know how 3x3 threads work
How is this difficult?
They're definitely one of a kind. It's worth trying them.
it's 'how many shows I like / how many show's I've seen' right?
the funniest things about torrentfags is how they claim that they're not butthurt at all, rather, streamfags are. But in reality they're the ones who always make sure to comment whenever an image from a stream is posted or when someone mentions that they stream their shows.
Wait, "like" or "agree with you including it in your 3x3"?
>what is second-hand embarrassment when you realize faggots like this exist and also pursue the hobby that YOU pursue
The manga was actually really good, but the anime was terrible to the point where I regret ever watching it. I'll never get those hours back.
>post an image with shit quality
>everyone else just mad
Yeah no. You need to keep elitism or else this place just becomes r/anime
not that guy and a torrentfag myself but
>what is getting over myself and my superiority?
Get over it. I dislike it when people post a streamed image myself, but fuck, just don't save it and move along. It's not hard now.
There were 2 stages/roles. At first I was male version of Lina Inverse and then I tried to play L.
Please anon, don't make me write more about it, it is somehow embarrassing.
I watched Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood in Windows Movie Maker
words fail me
It also has Seikon no Qwaser uncensored.
But they have Aria, Dirty Pair, Royal Space Force, Kino no Tabi, Rose of Versailles, Princess Tutu, Birdy Decoded, Black Jack, Dear Brother, Glass Mask, Jin Roh, Captain Harlock, Patlabor, The Tatami Galaxy, Remi, etc. It's a pretty fucking good selection all things considered. Or at least compare to Netflix.
I have one too but I never use it.
I streamed all of Rurouni Kenshin off of Megavideo.
I also watched Hand Maid May, DearS and Green Green and thought they were all good.
>just want to post a fucking image of a show for whatever reason
>have to redownload the whole show because idiots can't see past the relatively poor quality for a second and see the point i'm trying to make
thanks for proving my point
this guy gets it
I once shook Dan Green's hand.
It was really firm.
Liking Naruto, which I dropped the fuck out of.
>have to redownload the whole show
oh no not 500 MB ;__; you're right anon I'm sorry I ever doubted you. It's not like you could have saved the show or anything. It's best to just post thumbnail quality images and have everyone else filter the image so they can actually see what they're looking at ;__;
>there are people who are ok with lower quality goods when better quality ones are easily accessible
I've never had people get mad at me for poor-quality screenshots. I don't really care what people use unless I'm watching anime with them and they go on youtube or something like that.
I have download caps, jerk.
Watched all of ranma 1/2 on utube.
I have a anime picture as my jewbook cover
Thanks. I just stopped act like a freak and deleted all "crime evidences". I'm not hiding my interest of anime, people around me just don't give a shit about what I'm doing with my lonely evenings as long as I don't force them into it.
Pronouced Anime as "Anne I'm"
Why did you do something so horrible?
I didn't have your past, but all my friends know about my powerlevel and don't give a shit for the same reasons.
he could have said "an animes" what's worse, that he just doesn't know how to into english or that?
I streamed anime for 5 years. I still use online manga readers
You were a bad person.
Same. Kinda. I use my tablet for reading.
I don't know how you let that happen. Impressive.
Third. I downloaded a few manga series to read on my tablet, but they were all dual-page.
I was the guy up there who still doesn't know how to find good subs for shows because I have no idea which ones are better than others. I know some are decent and some are fast subs but it's usually just guess work.
And what did you use as your manga app I linked that on the Google Play store too. It's alright I guess but sometimes you get watermarks, you download it so it's pretty good for journeys to and from uni or college or something
You have great taste
I read anime on my tablet via online readers.
Thanks. I needed that.
When I first discovered the term Anime I was 11 and had no idea how it was pronounced. It was only when I got into a heated argument at my secondary school during my first year that I learned the correct pronunciation.
Before you ask, I got a slap in the face. I think it was well deserved.
I tried to get up to date with the pokemon anime, watching several episodes a day for several months. I didn't enjoy it for the most part, but I was just curious what happened.
I was 18 when I did this, it was 2 years ago.
Call me blind, but I can't tell a difference.
In 6th grade, someone tried to convince me that it was pronounced like "raymond" without the d.
Been saying I use a decent app. (watermarks sometimes but usually it's batoto scans)
Download 'em for trips or something.
>yo bro, you like those chinese raymon cartoons?
Christ. You have my sympathy.
Captcha: pacha McPuhsi
At least you guys never went through a phase where you called it Japanimation or Animanga.
bought a wallscroll of DRRR
that was full retard, friend. Just to let you know. I only ever called it anime and manga, and on the odd occasion animu and mango. But other than that it's just the /a/ accepted chinese cartoons.
I one time bought several bootlegged BRS figures just because they were cheap
I payed for a month of crunchyroll once when I didn't know torrenting sources besides piratebay existed and couldn't find a show I wanted to see. I thought it was the shit and wouldn't stop talking about it for weeks on end.
Also reveal my powerlevel on a regular basis.
Like a Jamaican Rayman?
I joined a book club because I got into anime and we had to draw our favorite book on a poster mine was at the time Dengeki Daioh it came out pretty nice I wish I knew what I did with it but I hate myself for being so dumb even showing my face there.
My senior quote was from Gurren Lagann.
How'd that work out for you?
>reveal my powerlevel on a regular basis
Come on, anon, you have to tell us what it was now.
So, what quote was it? Lets hear it, /a/non.
I have a team jacket from Inazuma Eleven.
I can live with that, I'd say that's a pretty average HS quote to be honest. Not like a lot of people are going to know what TTGL / Kamina is anyway, and if they do, they probably would approve.
Was... was it in that broken English?
I watched Haruhi dubbed on Youtube.
I displayed them for like a day and then realized how fucking stupid I was. Now they're collecting dust under my bed.
I used to write TTGL quotes on the walls of my school and all my classmates would praise me for writing deep and profound things. I never had the heard to tell them it was from an anime.
Excel Saga was really fucking good though.
Hired myself out as an interior decorator in exchange for having a lady make me a Shinsengumi uniform to attend an anime convention in for cosplay. Easily the plebiest thing I've ever done, and I've not done it since.
bro ramune is delicious
too expensive to drink on a regular basis though, so i stick to regular soda
I am president of my uni's anime club
They probably know it by now.
I watched and liked this
Your taste must be terrible, there's barely been anything good made after 2008 so far.
Powerlevel doesn't have anything to do with it, the people on /a/ who go on about good taste normally have extremely low powerlevels. They're not really committed to anime, they just want to fit in on an anonymous imageboard.
/a/ has been around since 03
No you don't
I unironically enjoy(ed) DearS
Most 'pleb' thing I've done is download rmvbs on megaupload and watch Bleach streaming. Though I defend the last one as I only watch it to get my trashy shounen fill and wouldn't waste bandwidth on downloading it.
I used to draw Kamina/Simon porn in the middle of class and then show it off to my friends.
I watched Haruhi subbed on Youtube. I rewatched it dubbed because I like Crispin Freeman's Kyon.
I'm rewatching it dubbed because I like Margarita Ivanova's Mikuru.
I used to download anime/manga from The Pirate Bay until I discovered bakabt/nyaa
I started to read Naruto because a girl told me to
I buy localized anime/manga
40 year olds can still be good. Keyword being "can."
She does a good job switching up between young and old Mikuru.
I watched 260 episodes of bleach dubbed
I know your pain.
>drawing gay porn in the middle of class
>fucking show it to people
What drove you to do this?
Me and my little brothers would spin around the ground pretending were digimon evolving I was like 9 or 10 I was a dumb kid...
I bought ninja stars from the dollar tree to be like Naruto.
>now this is podracing.jpg
For fucks sake man.
I bought an SnK jacket.
I almost bought an SnK jacket.
One of my exs back in high school drew lewd gay rule 34 of my best bro and I genderbended and in animu-style. She drew numerous pictures and sent them to me every night, they weren't deviantArt tier in terms of quality, but it was still pretty damn horrific.
She even gave our genderbended selves 63'd names and then created headcanons and personality quirks about them.
I still have it saved on my hard drive. I don't have the heart to delete them and I dread posting them on here.
I made an SnK jacket.
I keep a list of the shows I've watched.
I have awful taste.
Talked about and explained anime and /a/ to my mom. Frequently.
She was cool with it, even if she had no idea what I was talking about.
Well now you have to post them. Cover up the names if you have to.
It's okay. I almost bought one too. The only reason I didn't is because I was lucid/broke enough to realize that my money should be spent on worthwhile things.
It's such a pretty jacket though
Man. Dude. Man.
You don't even have a taste yet.
But if you tell me what you thought of Girls und Panzer I might accept you into the cool kids of /a/ yet.
Is this a list of the order you watched them in, or a ranking system?
I...I think you win the thread.
Not the brightest kid in the class, I see.
At your power level you haven't seen enough shit to have a taste, you didn't get tired from shit to understand how shitty this shit is. So enjoy as long as you can.
I still don't have an RSS feed set up
I re-read all of Berserk on manfafox
Elfen lied confirmed for decent show.
I streamed my first 80 anime
Rather go outside and hang with friends than stay home and watch animu.
>No you don't
/co/ isn't elitist. Go over there and see just how shitty the place is.
i download about 100GB of anime a month and only watch 1 show every 3 months or so.
i dont know why i do it.
I think that you shouldn't force yourself to watch anime. I always just end up rewatching lots of anime instead of watching new ones, unless it's something that's currently airing.
i always want to watch them, but i just get really autistic about having to watch so many episodes. i just want them condensed to movie size.
/a/ was much better when it wasn't elitist.
Is it overwhelming?
And it will be on par with /co/ if it isn't.
Get motivated by Free! to start lifting and swimming. I want a body as magnificent as Nagisa's and have a qt kyoani gf like Gou.
I can currently bench 85kg, squat 125kg and 140kg.
Saw some teenage girl with a Madoka shirt, and asked her what her favorite character was.
She said Sayaka, so i replied "Gross that's not Homura"
was she hot?
I use HS exclusively for airing shows.
I did start watching aime by the end of november last year, and I do have a job.
I enjoyed Girls und Panzer, and the music was really good
I feel the need to show a friend of mine every series I enjoy and then get annoyed when he doesn't like them as much as I do.
Fuck I meant Makoto, not Nagisa. Nagisa's a skinnyfag.
I did the fusion moves of DBZ with a guy back in highschool.
this gave me a chubby
ive stopped downloading and have only been streaming for the past year. kissanime master race
Then you get even more annoyed if he starts liking and fanboying more than yourself about something you recommended.
Kissanime is pretty good. I use it when I'm unable to download for whatever reason.
She was some what cute for being an anime fan, but was like 14 years old and 3D.
I meant torrent, not download.
I work weekends and need to stream anime when there, what subs do kissanime use?
Watched Cowboy Bebop with Hungarian dubs. It was titled "Csillagközi Fejvadászok".
Love that site. Based 720/1080p on Youtube/Drive player.
The only stream I ever bother to use or to recommend friends new anime.
I have no friends, but I once showed my brother Madoka and got really into the series to the point where he started buyfagging and bought a daki Kyouko. He went to great lengths to go to the Rebellion movie and forced me to go, now I slightly hate the series because of him.
>Not making it "My drill is the drill that will pierce the heavens"
I feel so bad for you
>/a/ was much better when it wasn't elitist.
much better at enabling faggots to infest the board?
Yeah we had an influx of newfags sitewide back in 2008-2011
Not pleasent times.
Come on now stop being cancer.
You should've gf'd her. Get her to cosplay all your waifus and fuck her.
Best thing that can realistically happen.
They don't have enough initiative to torrent a series unless they like the first few episodes. Waste of internet and storage.
Kissanime is based because I can instantly watch 720p anime on my phone without bothering to walk all the way to my desktop to torrent and wait for peers.
>I enjoyed Girls und Panzer
Okay, when you go through 100 shows call me and I'll introduce you to all the cool kids.
>and the music was really good
/co/ isn't even that bad, at least they talk about comics and not fetishes. /a/ is full of casuals now, people who only watch anime for the soft porn.
That would have been weird.. I was 21 years old at the time.
I said she was cute, but it was more of a puppy cute. I would never fuck a puppy.
I'd rather find a girl my own age.
/co/'s cartoon community is shit. /a/'s anime community isn't much better, but still.
Comics and manga are better anyway.
Stop going into shit threads, you know which ones are shit just by the OP image.
I'm a /co/ regular, that is so fucking wrong that anybody who goes on that board will completely disagree with you. /co/ loves their fetishes and I do too
2008 WAS the flood of elitist faggots. /b/tards who thought /a/ = anime /b/ and therefore requires some kind of edgy 'rules of the board' hivemind shit.
/a/ was once a peaceful place of anime discussion
This is what you're doing wrong. Also, why aren't you at your desktop 24/7?
i payed for a 1 year subscription for crunchyroll/spoiler]
Jesus, what was i thinking.
>not talking about fetishes
God damn your dumb.
/co/ (and /tg/ for that matter) is proud to be /d/-lite
>2008 WAS the flood of elitist faggots.
the elitism came to stem the influx dumbass
>some kind of edgy 'rules of the board' hivemind shit.
mods seem to agree, what with deleting Naruto threads on site.
>/a/ was once a peaceful place of anime discussion
sure it was. Let me put on my nostalgia goggles so I can view the past as rose coloured as you
I would say streaming anime, but since I'm at college and it takes days if not weeks to torrent something, streaming becomes more convenient. The plebest thing I probably have done and still do is watch anime that has a decent dub
>/co/ isn't even that bad, at least they talk about comics and not fetishes.
they talk more about fetishes then comics. Actually go there sometime and see.
>/a/ is full of casuals now, people who only watch anime for the soft porn.
>watching for porn
I.. um- that's just like your opinion
Is your college still on dial-up or something? Man what the fuck
>mods seem to agree, what with deleting Naruto threads on site.
Mods already stated Naruto threads are allowed, go back to /b/.
Nope. Naruto threads are not allowed. How about you fuck off to /b/ I'm sure you'll be able to discuss naruto there with similar minded individuals
I dropped Ergo Proxy 8 episodes in. The whole, "lets cross the world on a space sailboat to mosk" was gay as fuck. I also spoiled it for myself browsing wikis like an idiot.
nope, it's just that it is almost impossible to torrent here; there does not seem to be any blockers (I was able to torrent the Uchouten Kazoku OST) but most of the time I am not able to torrent (I will after this semester, senior year and all that)
>Mods already stated Naruto threads are allowed
Pretty sure I've seen them deleted even after that announcement when /a/ told all the narutards to fuck off
>go back to /b/
>implying I'm from /b/
>implying you're not projecting because you don't know shit about /a/ culture
How about you go back to /b/
Do they still discuss naruto on /b/?
Please don't speak for /a/ with your embarassing hivemind shit, newfag.
You should start using XDCC for your anime fix then
Now way can they block that shit unless they're literally watching you
I see the 2008-wave kiddies haven't grown out of anime yet. I'm betting 2 more years, any takers?
Man you can easily spot out the people who clearly do not belong on /a/ by using the phase ''board culture''
It's a fucking shame that /a/ is filled with crossies and shitposters like you nowadays
>Please don't speak for /a/ with your embarassing hivemind shit
You do realize that this 'hivemind' is just the culmination of everyone disagreeing with you.
only newfags call others newfags.
>grow out of anime
>post on /a/
>>>/v/ is that way
I looked into that a few years back when I found anime hq, but it seemed more complicated than simple torrenting
>you can easily spot out the people who clearly do not belong on /a/ by using the phase ''board culture''
You mean like >>100574160 ?
'Board culture' is a farce, it's arbitrary rules set up by kids who joined in the 2008 /b/tard invasion. They're casuals with low powerlevels and care more about posting on /a/ than watching anime.
They'll be gone in a few years when they grow up and realize their 'culture' was meaningless. Just like the /b/tards did.
Just admit you don't really care about video and sound quality and are okay with streaming.
Well, it's not that complicated. You just paste a command into the XDCC client while being on a channel like #NEWS and start downloading
Of course, first you'll have to make a Rizon account and download the /g/-approved IRC client, but it's nothing more than that and you'll finally be able to download your anime.
Hopefully. It's been 6 years since 2008, 6 long years.
>but it seemed more complicated
you go onto #news or #nibl on rizon and copypaste the command to download whatever episode you want.
He means that you say board culture, and it weeds out the cross board posters and shitposters, like you
>'Board culture' is a farce, it's arbitrary rules set up by kids who joined in the 2008 /b/tard invasion. They're casuals with low powerlevels and care more about posting on /a/ than watching anime.
says the guy trying to enforce counter /a/ culture. I really seriously think you're projecting.
>says the guy trying to enforce counter /a/ culture
That doesn't make any sense, there is no '/a/ culture'. There never has been. /a/ is an Anonymous messageboard usable by all and any. That's how it is now and how it has always been, you're the only one trying to force anything. I can bet I've been on /a/ much longer than you have and I can bet my powerlevel is much higher than yours too.
>That doesn't make any sense, there is no '/a/ culture'. There never has been.
and you're trying to enforce such an idea. But you're mad at everyone else for enforcing the idea.
QED and .thread
>That doesn't make any sense, there is no '/a/ culture'. There never has been.
and you're trying to enforce such an idea. But you're mad at everyone else for enforcing the idea.
QED and /thread
Not him, but the only "culture" here are the rules.
Other than that, you can do anything you want, and no one can tell you otherwise.
>I can bet I've been on /a/ much longer than you have and I can bet my powerlevel is much higher than yours too.
I've been on /a/ since 2005 and you'll never know my powerlevel because I don't brag about it like some autistic cunt who thinks he's cool on the internet
