I think it's time for a screencap thread. Try to keep it /a/ related.
There are that many people on /a/ who haven't seen NGE?
I haven't, /a/ ruined it for me.
Is that some kind of problem?
Same old screenshots: The thread
You ruined it for you.
Well it's an extremely popular and well-known show, so you'd expect the vast majority of the anime board, or at least those who post, to have seen it, right?
Why watch it when I heard about every detail of the story way before I ever had a chance to watch it?
Not really, considering /a/ is focused on currently airing anime rather than older stuff.
I can't believe I missed that. Oh well, I guess Jeanne confirmed best apocrypha.
Not really. Just because it's popular doesn't mean they have to watch it. People can get away with watching hundreds of anime and not seeing something like eva.
But they should. Whether it's good or not it's an important touchstone for the medium.
It's pretty much an essential for /a/, considering how relevant that show is to this board.
This is up there with military-bro for best /a/non story.
Posting best imouto.
2chan needs to see this, they'd love it.
It will never be beaten and for everyone's sake I hope it isn't
Is this shit happening?
My post is in that screencap. I've since seen the show, if that makes you feel better.
>try to keep it /a/ related
I remember when I first came to /a/ in 2007 and from just lurking the code geass threads I thought the show was about school girls who piloted giant robots against the British while wearing school uniform swimsuits, and that Shirley was the MC.
W-where has Roko been lately? I used to see him all the time in Fate threads.
Between the years of 2003 and 2006 I thought Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop were the same show from anecdotal Adult Swim overhearing.
When I started watching anime regularly and watched Eva I kept waiting for them to go into space...
jesus christ, how the fuck did i miss this?
and i thought we had the crazy ones at /tg/?
See me after class
I don't think so.
Well that was interesting.
Is there another part to this?
Don't believe so. You can find the archive on foolz, but it doesn't really go anywhere.
/tg/ is fairly sane in comparison to the rest of 4chan, I think. I mean, it's dedicated to a hobby that by its very nature demands that its denizens have some modicum of social skills.
Someone should write a book based off of this.
Someone tried to revive this a couple weeks ago, and failed miserably.
Not /a/, but still very moe.
I just go a very distinct feeling you are talking about me. Please alleviate that by explaining.
That was pretty cool.
Doxxed by siz and friends
I tried to keep it /a/ related, but this is golden
I've got a few.
Here's that guy who waited two years to tell a joke but failed miserably.
This was a great thread. Made me laugh about that guy getting stuck in the bathroom for days, and finally made me realize how shitty 3DPD is.
I don't get this. Is this some shitty /co/ meme?
Donald is a duck.
Why does it have to be a duck? Why can't it be the rabbit thing?
Anyone have the Chuuni correcting answers with red pen one?
Anyone got screencaps from our international bonding with the mysterious panda?
This screencap/story is an extension of the original posts/thread. The original was much more magical, but I neglected to save it for some reason. Pulled this from the archive.
Holy shit that's so stupid but so goddamn funny
Because that's Buster.
That's not the same guy who did the "C.C was watching him the whole time" one, right?
I'll get to finishing this story one day. Working on the moot/Anon-kun dialogue is bigger obstacle than I thought it would be.
It was a geniune fuckup some guy made by calling Arthur, Donald
So essentially, yes it's now a /co/ meme
This is actually pretty fucking depressing to me.
Nine years I have been here and things have been bad before, but /a/ has always recovered.
I don't think she is going to make it this time.
I'm not so sure, but I think you're talking about this one.
Does anyone have the PirateAnon one?
I can't imagine it NOT being depressing for most people. S-she'll make it for sure.
That's the one. Ah, I missed 2013's.
It's just when you spend almost a third of your life somewhere seeing it slowly fall to shit because of benign neglect and the vandals, you can't help but get depressed.
And the worst part is the newfriends think they are helping make it better. That by trying so hard, using buzzwords, being internet toughguys, and living up to this image of /a/ they have created in their heads tehy are going to fit in and "fix" the problems /a/ has that they are a big part of is infuriating. You try to tell them to chill out and lurk and contribute, but they throw little shitfits screaming at you that you don't belong here and to head to reddit.
idk saging for my blogshit
Here's a small excerpt for those of you who are still interested
>Anon-kun and /a/-chan are sitting on the hill together when /a/-chan has a question
>"Ne ne, Anon-kun.."
>"What's it like, being patted on the head? Does it feel good?"
>"I don't know. I've never been patted on the head before."
>".. Come on, let's try it Anon-kun! Come here!"
>Anon-kun reluctantly moved closer, and /a/-chan put her hand on his head, ruffling his hair
>"W-What do you think Anon-kun?"
>"It's okay, I guess."
>"It's my turn now! Come on Anon-kun!"
>Anon-kun placed his hand on her head, and patted her on the head
>"So what do you think?" Anon asks
>"Hmph-da! It's nothing special!" /a/-chan proclaims as Anon-kun pats her head.
>"Well okay." Anon-kun says as takes his hand away, and looks back at the manga he was reading.
>"W-Wait! Who said that you could stop, you dummy!" she yells
>Anon-kun laughs, and pats her on the head again.
Can you imagine it? In just a few years "4chan" won't know how or what saging is.
What anime is this?
Boku no OFFTOPICSHITPOSTINGTHREAD
The Daily Lives of Loser Weaboos
dunno if this is good or not.
oh shit thats my post with the clap on
It's a shame that you can't have moments like those without people shitposting things like "lel epic! screenshot this".
Feels like I enter these threads once every year, since I don't recognize the 2013 images that I didn't witness.
>>100577409's is particularly good, 10/10 would read again. Definitely deserves a book and makes me want to watch an anime more than any of the anime-related images in this thread.
I watched it, and I don't think it's essential.
There are no essential anime to watch to post on /a/, you should watch the old stuff only if you want to talk about more than the current airing anime.
>But the manga doesn't look like that. I'm confused.
Poor choice of words, but what he wanted to say made sense.
I don't know why people on /a/ have this black and white mentality when it comes to demographies.
Demographies for our mangies and animies?
Looks like it got samefagged to hell and back.
I'll be waiting for the conclusion.
You better fucking deliver.
Yes. You don't watch NGE because it's good. You need to watch it to understand modern anime, or at the very least modern mecha. Even if you think it's shit, you can't deny it's influential.
It's the same reason why any sci-fi fan has to read Asimov except Asimov is objectively good
Shoujo for adults would be Josei
remember when this was the silliest thing about vulvarape?
This was probably fake, but still amazing.
Wait, is this really what Valverave is about? Cause if there is actually a hard scientific anime that came out and I completely ignored it because I thought the fanbase looked like obnoxious little twelves year olds, I am going to punch myself in the dick.
Speaking of Valvrave
The only decent sci-fi anime coming out any time soon is Knights of Sidonia
It's kind of depressing when you see your drunken ramblings pop up in a screens thread.
It is fucking the worst to see them a few times.
mind pointing them out?
Not /a/ but still
No I would rather not. It's the same reason I stopped writing for /tg/. It embarrasses me that something that is so fun and enjoyable when I am drunk looks like childish shit when I am sober.
Not a screencap but this was pretty fun:
Someone needs to fuel the "What the fuck did I just watch?" threads for the following years.
yes it is so fucking kill yourself?
>Old screenshots are old and stale
>New screenshots are mostly unfunny and forced
Am I the only one who gets bored with half of these really long ones? Sometimes they don't even have a good ending after the wall of green text.
someone post the chrome is your friend one
>WARNING: not /a/
Kinda hard to beat the Little Witch Academia stickies last summer. Narutoland doesn't count because moot.
Time to stop browsing /x/, tripfriend
I go there only for the story
anyone have a source on how to get this skin?
I just couldn't watch it because the MC was called Shoko, and that means Chocolate Milk in my language.
I remember having quite the shock my first time watching subbed anime because "nani" is slang for pussy where I'm from.
Learn to edit stylesheets.
One anon on how he'd feel if his waifu was raped
This gets me every time. How do you have so much of a sheltered life that you've never seen a race track before?
I'd like to see a movie of this, preferably in anime form.
And even if you have never seen a track before, you should be able to figure out that each lane having a different start line is so they have the same total length.
Nope, blowfly girl has been around since I was a newfag, and I'm pretty sure it came from either /b/ or offsite.
I think it was originally posted on Live Journal. I first read it many years ago on another board, and I think there was a link to it.
During the N/a/ruto fiasco.
Astronomical fail but even if he did it, it wouldn't have been as funny.
I still haven't forgive that faggit
Hope he rot in hell forever
Were friends. Aaahhh.
remind me to show you either big boy blue or luke, plagueson of nurgle one day, its horrifying and just disgusting.
Shit just look at 1d4chan's NSFW/stories page.
Seeing that most of these posts happened around 2012-2013, I'm surprised that /a/ managed to maintain high quality standards for longer than /v/ has.
I guess I know which board I'm moving onto next.
But they aren't high quality posts. They are shit.
And really /v/ is a much better board I think you would be much happier staying there.
Awww, don't be like that /a/.
I know you love me, no need to act so tsun.
It'll be like the old days.
She actually has a blog and still posts last time I checked.
Should I watch this anime?
whats with the 993?
As a note, some dude proved this to be bullshit selfharm stuff.
Was this on /a/?
Nah, /tg/. (the original thing was posted on /fa/ I think)
I'm sure there's a repost of the breakdown of it somewhere on suptg, I'd dig it up and post it but I'm really fucking tired.
It was /tg/. They had a paramedic or an doctor of some sort there explaining the anatomy of the wounds and shit and how the story was bullshit.
Real fun stuff.
Whoa, suptg is pretty sweet.
Why are they the only board that gets shit done?
Suptg is still around? Oh man I remember when I used to spend hours talking with Lord Liquorice.
I think that the majority of sane people go there and that's why it's probably one of the best boards.
But fuck the quest threads, there's too fucking many and they go for way too fucking long.
Man, suptg is the bees knees.
this was literally the greatest fight ever, holy shit.
God I remember how much fun it was to play with those guys. Jeanstealer, lolcron, LL, Beefstick, UncleBear and everyone else. It has been years...shit six-seven years since I have talked to any of them. I wonder who is still around.
Jean was the best though. She was such a sweet heart, and funny as fuck.
Do you believe in drastic yourself?
KAZUMA WON AND RETURNED TO HIS LOVING LOLI ALL IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD
well some quests are alright but yeah we should do something bout our quests going overboard.
eh oh well.
i always thought this one was fucking retarded.
I loved /tg/ it was the golden son of 4chan. The best of us. So much creativity, originality, fun, and quality flowing out of it.
Seriously there is no board that has ever matched /tg/ at it's zenith.
>still no jetpacks in sight
I remember when was like this all the fucking time.
Now it's all on topic this and serious that
Jesus fucking christ.
Maybe he makes his return in the second season.
i have to say this thread is pretty epic
An anime with this timeline will be legendary. I mean it. 11/10 will watch.
God damn, I read all these.
I got a boner at the maggot thing what the fuck
Does anyone have the post about punching people into doors?
This guy actually showed up again during either the Christmas or New Years r/a/dio thread and shared a story about his son. Glad to know they're doing fine.
This is like "the wrestler" but with animu
It's never time for an "e/b/ig thread thread XD"
That's like saying you can be a film buff, watch thousands of films, but not see Citizen Kane or some shit. It's literally essential, and if you want to understand in a large way what made anime what it is today, it's canon.
Not really a accurate metaphor there. Citizen Kane is so often referenced as influential film because it incorporated a great deal of innovative new ideas to the craft of film making, and existed as a sort of beginning for a new way of doing things.
Evangelion was a deconstruction of a genre that had grown stagnant, and took well established tropes and turned them on their head.
They both were extremely influential on what came after, but the underlying principles were very different.
If I was going to compare Evangelion to something it would be more like Truffaut's Les Quatre Cents Coups
God, fuck that series. I'm ashamed that it took me 80 chapters to drop it.
Italian for animation is animazione
Shinji is walking to school when he sees Rei, then Gendo tells him to get in the robot, Shinji, but Shinji doesn't want to. Then, Shinji wants to get in the robot. He fights many bad evangelions which are angels, and at some point he tells Rei to smile, but she sucks at smiling so he stops wanting to pilot a robot again. Also the robot is his mom.
Also there's a girl named Asuka who is a bitch, and is on her period, and she has to do everything Shinji does in order to fight better. Unfortunately, she gets put into a coma after being too bitchy in a big battle, so Shinji cums on her, and realizes he's fucked up.
It's then revealed that Gendo's masterplan is to revive Shinji's dead mother by defeating enough angels and using their powers to wish the mom back. This will also cause the end of the world somehow. Also Rei is revealed to be Shinji's dead mom except blue. Rei dies and is replaced by a clone of herself who is better at smiling, so Shinji falls in love with her. Then Kaworu who is an angel shows up and Shinji becomes gay. They fuck, but Kaworu dies protecting Shinji from Asuka, who also dies as a result, and the apocalypse happens because Shinji accidentally wished on the angelballs that the world would turn into tang unless you don't want to turn into tang. Rei is revealed to not only be his dead mom but also an angel, who turns people into tang. Turns out everyone does in fact want to turn into tang, except him and Asuka, even though she was dead, she's alive. She hates him and tries to choke him, but can't bring herself to do so because he just gave her a lifetime supply of tang.
Not really /a/ related, but here.
So, this kind of thread were allowed all along?
I am friends with most people I've conversed with on /a/
same with /v/ they may be assholes but 90% I can guarantee I would get along with if we were in the same room
>Citizen Kane is so often referenced as influential film because it incorporated a great deal of innovative new ideas to the craft of film making, and existed as a sort of beginning for a new way of doing things.
By that do you mean some guy looked at 20's German cinema and made a Hollywood movie with their techniques and then everyone thought he was a genius?
Shit I may as well give it a try, but I actually do think I know what it is about based on having had Evafags ram down my throat what a master piece it is for the last ten years.
There is a sort of creator force out there in the universe that seeds planets with life. It uses two main types of "seed ships". One is a type that creates life that is physically superior in size and power and doesn't need to develop anything else. It creates worlds that are monstrous gardens of giant life forms. The other type of seeds planets with smaller life forms that evolve and fill every kind of niche out of necessity and can evolve higher thought and souls. Only one of each type of "seed ship" can exist on a planet, if two end up on the same planet one will have to destroy the other using the spears that they carry. If the bodies of the two types of "seed ships" come into contact with each other they react violently and explode. Adam, a seed ship of the first kind, lands on earth. another "seed ship" Lilith lands on earth, comes into contact with Adam, creates a massive explosion that throws a huge chunk of earth into space that becomes the moon, part of Adam is on the moon, the other part in on the south pole. Lilith is damaged in this First Impact and it's blood leaks out and becomes the basis of all life on Earth. Life evolves and eventually humans develop. Humans find part of Lilith, and she becomes the basis for a lot of mysticism and myths on primitive earth. Eventually a group of mystics calling themselves Seele comes up with this line of thought that if one can combine the evolutionary soul power of Lilith, with the superior bodies and power of Adam they will become Gods.
Flash forward a few thousand years. A scientist working for Seele and his wife, another scientist, are at the South Pole dicking around with that part of Adam's body trying to experiment with it to see if they can reach Godhood. One of the experiments is to see what happens when something derived from Lilth, a human, interacts with Adam's body. The scientists wife goes in for a try and ends up having her soul sucked into Adam, and another massive explosion occurs called the Second Impact. This explosion causes massive problems all over the globe and releases a creature created from the body of Adam called an Angel which causes all sorts of shit to go down before being destroyed. The world cleans it's self up, and Seele, which at this point is incredible influential, figures out that Angels are going to keep appearing and wrecking shit in an attempt to destroy what is left of Lilith's body and in doing so cause all the life on earth which is evolved from it to lose it's cohesion and return to the protoplasmic state of being Lilith's blood, which looks like tang the drink of astronauts. They learned through their experiments that they could create an artificial Angel by infusing the body of Adam with human souls, and that these Evas would grow into giants that could potentially be controlled with the use of a pilot but only if the pilot is able to sync their brainwaves with the those of the Eva. The only way to achieve sync is if the pilot is the child of the soul that became the Eva. Seele makes the Scientist, named Gendo, head of the organization GeoFront and plan to use the Eva made from his wife as the first model. They cloning his dead wife to see if they can make a pilot that will have even an even greater sync with the first Eva by making it sync with it's self. Gendo devotes himself to his work and sends his infant son off to live with his aunt and uncle, as he begins to plot to usurp Seele's plan to make themselves Gods by becoming one himself.
Flash forward 15 years. Gendo's son Shinji grew up becoming a bitter little betafag. He receives a message from his father telling him to come to the city. Shinju hops on a bus and when he gets there a smoking hot 10/10 Christmas Cake meets him to pick him up. Shinji is butt ravaged that his daddy didn't come to pick him up. An Angel shows up and starts wrecking shit. When they arrive, Gendo shows up and tells Shinji to get in the fucking robot. Shinji throws a shitfit refuses, and this qt3.14 kuudere girl Rei shows up and says she will get in the fucking Robot. She does, kicks the Angels ass getting fucked up in the process and Gendo is disappoint. Rei goes to the hospital, and Shinji goes to live with the Christmas cake. Another angels shows up, Shinji gets in the fucking robot, beats it, and is sad that his daddy doesn't hug him. Rei gets out of the hospital and attends Shinji's class. Shit goes alright for a while, but for some reason Shinji has to go to her house which is filthy. He sees her naked and gets a boner. More angels show up, and Shinji and Rei fight them in Evas. Shit goes like this for a while then this slutty half nip red headed tsuntsun shows up named Asuka with Christmas Cake's ex. She calls Shinji baka a lot and when an Angel shows up she is fucking useless and Shinji beats it. In order to make Asuka a better pilot she plays DDR with Shinji gets better and cock teases Shinji a lot.
They beat some more Angels. There is some creepy shit between Rei and Gendo, but it turns out it is cool because she is a clone of his dead wife and he has a thing for younger girls. Rei does something Gendo shoots her and pulls another clone out of the tank. Angels show up, Asuka gets hurt and ends up in the hospital in a coma. Shiji pissed off because off all of the cock teasing jerks off on her, cries, and gets on a train. Christmas Cake tracks him down and brings him back to fight an Angel. This guy Kawrou shows up has sex with Shinji on a piano, turns out to be an Angel who is also working for Seele, figures out that Lilith is in GeoFront's basement and goes to destroy it. Shinji shows up in his Eva and cuts Kawrou's head off before he can do anything. Gendo does some shady shit to try and become god, but shit goes bananas and Rei2 ends up becoming God. Everyone starts becoming Tang Shinji ends up in some world Rei made and is given the job of deciding what God is going to do. He cries some more, everyone from the series shows up and claps for him, and he decides that he wants a normal world where he can go to school with Asuka because he secretly kind of dug being cock teased. The world is remade, and he runs to school with some toast in his mouth.
Well how close was I to getting it right?
This fucking show.
> That has the possibility to be even better than the show itself.
The one on the right is clearly going to rape the smaller one.
>Bottom left part of /a/
God fucking damn it, NO. That guy does NOT know what the fuck he is talking about. A moving field has a vector, or vector related mechanics that helps to form the field. Accelerator could very easily unravel a field, even if he has no direct control over it. Fuck anyone that seriously uses that as a copypasta, because it's completely fucking wrong.
saving for reference in case I ever need to write a yandere
100 pages holy shit
Anyone have the 11.85 MB thread from when the first Rebuild movie was released?
I don't remember the actual number but I remember people shitting themselves over the filesize and posting reaction images.
The real question is what happened to UTV? How did he react? Is he even alive?
I remember I lurked /sp/ for a few weeks after this happened, but I never saw him, and shit is so fucking stupid over there I got bored and left.
That guy was probably further along the road to waifuism than any of us have ever been.
According to a few articles I've read he called the police and went into hiding. But I'm not from /sp/, someone from there might know more.
His internet went out or something as it happened, and when he came back, he just laughed about it and kept on shitposting.
One of my favorites.
Does anyone have any funny ones from Shingeki threads?
probably, but still.
any more like this?
damn man, you're makin' me miss that crowd
The artstyle is too outdated for me to enjoy.
I also don't find the story interesting.
Is it about Mysterious Girlfriend X?
I wanted to read it. I guess not.
Forgot part where they eat vatrushkas.
Also what is toast?
Capitalist fake syrniki?
I don't know what it's about but there is no way it could be about that.
The filename is MGX in a nutshell. That's why I thought it was that.
Wow, I remember being in this thread.
On that note who has the tsubaki hypothermia cap.
No way anon, me too.
I don't know if it's just me but I found this fucking hilarious.
It still baffling
>I have this great setup for a comic
>Do go on
>It's about a single father who was raped as a child
>A serious graphic novel i see
>He's tasked to teach a little girl to love cum, but she hates it!
>Brilliant! We'll make it into an animated series!
>When I started watching anime regularly and watched Eva I kept waiting for them to go into space...
How did you feel watching 3.0?
Was that the first thing that came to your mind?
Damn. That's it, I'm off to fucking finish my work and keep my way to being a teacher.
what happened to the drawfag who wanted to make a manga out of it?
I was there. It was awesome, they just fucking kept going at it.
Oh, this one. Internet said somebody else did the shop (like always).
I should try this.
>Mom says stop staring at me
>Staring like what, I'm just looking at your eyes
>You haven't blinked for around two minutes
4chan has made me evolve
This always creeps me the fuck out.
I hope this is not real.
>Playing stare with your mom.
That's pathetic, unless you are a toddler, in which case, good job typing that.
What doujin is this?
I was just talking to her. I developed the habit of looking at people in the eye when talking, so I could get rid of the aspie by force.
How the fuck could I have missed this.
I was one of the anons doing the screenshot walkthrough as I watched it that night. MoMH is the new Boku no Pico.
Seriously, that last episode is an experience.
Japan is so moe.
>I can't read English
>Hello! Are you well?
Fuck it I'm watching this. it's only 2 hours and a half. What's the worst thing that can happen.
I'll be waiting for the inevitable "WTF?!" thread you'll make when you finish.
You'll break from the strain and go on a rampage in the nearest public establishment, subsequently causing the police to investigate your web browsing habits and contact the administrators of any that seem suspect, with the end result that I wouldn't be able to browse /a/ for a few hours.
I'm not sure if this is sad or alpha as fuck, or maybe both.
That's alpha as fuck. I wouldn't mess with a nigga with that on his wall.
>The artstyle is too outdated for me to enjoy.
Get the fuck out.
I thought something similar going into LOGH and it's still the best shit I've ever seen.
Fucking philistines man.
Starting to seriously believe that /a/ is now populated by a demographic of underage teenagers who haven't seen anything from before 2005. How wrong am I?
It's not only alpha, but also god tier taste. Yoko is a member of that small circle that contains only the truly Best of Best Girls.
Yoko with cowtits is not good taste.
I literally cannot explain until you watch.
Underage teenagers, yes.
Before 2005? No.
This, he was probably one of those horrible horrible neckbeards that literally have no awareness of what they're doing. It's like that video of those two furries going to hobby lobby or whatever and acting like complete retards.
"Let's be friends"
>reaches hand for handshake
>puts hamburger in hand
DUDE THIS SHIT IS AWESOME
Oh god, it gets better. I completely forgot about the burgers too.
Sub or dub?
If I'm doing it. I'm going for Impossible Mode.
I watched the sub. I couldn't handle it.
Godspeed, keep us updated anon.
Fuck it, I'm rewatching.
>first dub lines
I don't know Anon, this might not work out so well.
He is scared shitless because the day of reckoning is near.
he cannot escape
>fights to get it back.
>lights go out
>my eyes haven't adjusted, how can she see
>suddenly has Splinter Cell googles
EVERYONE. WATCH. THIS. NOW.
End of episode one, huh?
I saw it with dub audio and english subtitles, it was weird as fuck.
>mfw someone I met in person introduced themselves by explaining that he'd just seen the last episode of master of martial hearts dubbed
I heard some shit, man... I need to watch it some time.
>kicks the explosives
Do it now. I think there's at least three anons ITT doing a (re)watch.
He just...introduced himself like that? He walked up to you and said, "Look, I just finished watching MoMH dubbed, okay? Give me space."
Okay after finishing that first episode, I need a break. Why do every puch tear through clothes? Why is McDonalds "Moe". Why is this shit so hilarious?
All aboard the Martial Heart Train!
He told me the twist though... I'm not sure if I really want to see it.
No, he was like "So let me explain to you in great detail the plot of master of martial hearts, this shit is so wrong yooo"
I kinda wish I'd written it down now. Hanging off his every word.
Trust me, the first episodes really give you a background. Do it. Spoiler for blog.
So help me god if his name is Derek.
Listen, the second episode amps it up with chemical equations, pervy professors, and PLATONIC HEART
Keep going anon. The answers are at the other end of the tunnel.
I saw the dvd in a bargain bin for super cheap. My biggest regret.
Not called Derek.
Oh god I'm literally dying over that cap
Christ thats weird.
Did Ikue Otani really do both?
The only part that got me is
>Despite being really strong the chef never seems to join in the battles
I can tell they didn't watch very far
Not even the funny one.
But isn't owning a physical copy the greatest joy of all? Why wouldn't you want to be the Master of Martial Hearts?
Here have another then.
My regret is that I didn't buy it anon.
I bought an oppai mousepad instead
>you japanese speak in fucking poems, not correct grammar, but pretty as hell
Oh God this so much
Well done. Where are you shopping that has these items?
Where is the one about earhquakes and fucking the earth?
I don't have that one, but it's actually a banner that pops up from time to time.
What about, "through dick, unity"?
What kind of places do you meet people who talk about shit anime, see shit anime for sale, and buy overpriced merchandise?
local anime con
It was more of Sanji being a jobber later on.
i am exploding
>The fear fades away
I swear, these faggots get some god tier literature classes.
How did we get so many japanese people to come on 4chan? These are all absolute gems. I wish I hadn't missed them.
Yeah right. My part of the burgerland just has trees 'n shit.
I've got them all.
By local I mean a few hours train ride into London as opposed to a few days plane trip to Comiket
Best ones coming in. Damn nips.
Eh, so much anime, no much money.
Wait till you see this one.
Just kidding, /DJT/ took that one.
Nips as always
How is Eva a deconstruction? I hear that all the time, but after actually watching some older mecha I feel like it just isn't (if you think mecha pilots were the pinnacle of manliness or that the genre was mired in black and white morality then you're very wrong). Maybe it can be considered a satire of "moe", but that's a different question.
Jesus Fucking Christ, all of these are either unfunny shit or old to the point of losing it's luster.
>hey it got some responses, better screencap and repost even though it wasn't that funny
Any of you who made these, saved these, or reposted these are faggots.
I think you're just turning into and old, bitter man that will put his anime posters on his fence, then spend the whole day sitting at his porch reading LNs and yelling at kids who get too close.
A deconstruction takes characters and watches how they would react realistically. Eva could have been Shinji becoming a heartstrong badass but then it would have just been mecha. He reacted like a 15-year old would - crying a lot, wondering what the fuck is happening, and having mixed sexual feelings. I feel like it is a deconstruction of certain elements, but perhaps not overall a deconstruction.
Also Jesus Christ the second episode of Martial Hearts KILLED me.
>my pasta made it into a screencap thread
I feel somehow honored.
isn't in considered a quintessential anime?
>money help, look help, if both, date win
>if one, hard possible
>if not either, take gun to head
I want this poem engraved on my tombstone.
A few anons are watching it now, so feel double honored.
wheres the anon that bought the 1 disc dvd boxset?
The real world is cruel like that
And I think you're an utter faggot content with this garbage, letting the idea that being screencapped is somehow cool run rampant so everyone fucking does it even though it's unfunny and forced shit.
If you had ever watched any of the early Gundams, not to mention more direct inspirations like Ideon, you would realize that none of that is new, except perhaps the bisexuality. Further, Eva's characterization is more "this protagonist has father issues and is depressed" than how an ordinary teenager would realistically react. Also, you don't know what a deconstruction is.
It made about 200 anons watch it in a stream last week or so.
I got to see firsthand the explosion of people reacting to the end of ep 5.
It was beautiful.
You're part of the problem. It's making /a/ a worse place. I hope you're proud.
this guy got a chuckle out of me.
>better alone, happy
>than together, miserable
This is a 10/10 dark ambient music.
I miss board interconnectivity.
It's impossible to do it in day and age. Unfortunately.
Break over, chapter 2 incoming with best animated shower scene since To love Ru Darkness
>...so about Kanon...
even the final line was pretty funny.
Is someone going to start a MoMH thread?
I will once i finish the chapter 2
Have you made it to CHEMICAL SYMBOLS yet?
The Ranma doujin, right?
I am in What the hell happened to your throat
lol bitch be mute
Neither is this, tangentially.
People just use deconstruction on the internet because they don't know it doesn't mean subversion. And it's still an overwhelmingly wrong generalization about the series
That explains it. I wonder if Eva's actually good or if pseudo-intellectuals have just fucked it in the ass without anybody calling them out on it.
The lore's pretty fucking airtight, in-universe. It shows that Gainax had it all planned out before drawing the first cel. It's good, really good, but not the greatest thing in the universe.
>the great UTV bank robbery
What's considered canon? Not asking for you to explain everything, just asking for what I should look up to understand it.
TV series, EoE.
That's it. Real easy.
Then how do people know all this shit about the universe that I don't, like humans being Lilith based life and Adam giving birth to angels and all the circumstances that can cause an impact? I didn't see those details anywhere.
Oh, forgot that shit. First Ancestral Race and all that were referenced in the Girlfriend of Steel: 2 video game, and Shinji Ikari Raising Project has a few things. There are also a couple word-of-god prime directives from Anno himself.
This just happened today and there were 3 replies. No one cared, why did you screencap it?
Another thing I think it suffers from is Citizen Kane syndrome. Both were unlike anything before it, and everything after took it into consideration. You look back at Citizen Kane, and think "What was so special about it again?" because you already internalized the it's affect on movies. People who seriously got into anime and watched a lot of mechs and plots with 'tweests' after EVA was made, and invariably say that it is overrated when they see it for the first time.
Well, that sounds pretty scattered, so I guess I'll just accept the things I've heard as being true. Thanks for responding, by the way.
You have no idea what you're talking about. Eva draws on a lot of things, most notably Devilman and Dentetsu Kyojin Ideon. Neither of those are nearly as popular as it is, but it is hardly mesmerizing in its original.
No problem anon, not much of an internet forum if there is no forum part.
Wholeheartedly agree. Eva was one of the first I watched, and I see its influence everywhere, especially character archetypes and designs. Not to mention its great parts of story and good fights.
I mean, who can watch episode 16, or 19, then tell me that shit isn't completely and totally disturbing?
Well, all this stuff was teased & hinted at in the series, it was only explicitly laid out in the tie-in works. The PS2 rpg is where most of it's drawn from
I disagree. Sure there are some pervasive ideas in these generes, but it didn't feel like Ideon or Devilman the way some shows have an eva feel.
Ideon also rips a lot of the acid trip ending to 2001 A Space Odyssey for it's movie, which is hilarious.
Eva had a huge impact on characterization and in some respects (Rei's character especially) it was very original. Still, when people act like its dark, artsy atmosphere was completely original and marked the point where anime went from being children's cartoons to being an intellectual medium, it kind of irritates me. I guess I'm somewhat reactionary to people calling Eva a deconstruction and likening the show to Citizen Kane when they probably only watched two series that came out before Eva did. Finally, EOE was very much an acid trip ending, and Evangelion would not be half as iconic (at least from contemporary standards) without it.
>the cock is like...the least gay part of the body.
no anon, that's backwards.
I don't know anon, I could at least understand what was going on in EoE. 25+26 were just too much for my mind.
Actually it's a male fetish to see a cock, it was like the #3. Google made a documentary about it.
The original ending was much more open ended, or it was debatable as to whether or not it was actually an ending. Personally, I thought the original ending was a psychotic breakdown where Shinji overcomes his depression that didn't actually fix the general problems at hand.
I didn't say it was a deconstruction or anything. If you don't like the CK analogy, how about Star Wars? Same premise of all three being massive hits that made people change the way they look at movies and anime. They made ripples in their mediums, where people say it has an EVA feel to it or it has SW feel. EVA is a national goddamn treasure over there and for good reason.
And I was talking about actual lifting of imagery for the ending of Ideon, not that it was in itself acidy. I wish I had the picture that showed side by sides.
I'll take Star Wars. Just don't lord your cinematography class over me.
But I never took a cinematography class. I just really like movies and anime. And older movies feel more fun compared to this new drivel, our dark age of unoriginality.
Depends on the movie. There's still plenty of pretentious stuff out there, and if critics fall in love with something they're usually right to do so. Anyways, I try not to completely disconnect myself from my generation (which an addiction to anime threatens to do regardless).
The thing about Star Wars is that it was very derivative of existing works. The movies draw heavily from a number of sources, everything from Buck Rodgers to Asimov's Foundation to The Dam Busters; they just applied them in such a way that people either didn't notice or didn't care. What Star Wars revolutionized was presentation, especially in regards to special effects. So to make that comparison, would you say that Evangelion's actual creative contributions to the medium were similarly limited?
I actually dislike most stuff that's new and made to be pretentious movies. Things you can get pretentious about is always better. Stuff like War Horse? Yeah, fuck right off. Horses are dumb fucking animals.
Depends on what you mean by limited. There's tons of creative ideas behind Star Wars's universe and mythology. This is also discounting EU. Just from the movies you have wonderful ideas and stories. Before Lucas went total hack, he made it a point to give all characters back stories and histories to flesh out their existence and make it feel real. And visuals and what not too. The fact that he made the A New Hope's story simple Hero's arc with good vs evil is really what made it work. For EVA, it feels like it's more creative than star wars in that aspect of story but I would never dream of calling either of them seriously limited.
As a fan of anime at all, regardless of this board, Evangelion is definitely essential viewing. If someone told me they loved anime and also that they'd never seen Eva I couldn't take them seriously in that regard.
Hello there. Anyone who wants to join a handful of other anons in our skype room add me on skype: cog.jake
Do you gamble?

That's fucking disgusting yo. Especially the double ntr part.
surely you mean asuka right
For baby's first tsundere? No. They've refined that little gem of retardation in other anime.
My sides are in orbit.
Rei Q isn't tsundere.
Good thing we were talking about Asuka and her tsundereness, or this would be a very confusing post. Of fucking course none of the Reis are tsundere, retard.
But Rei is the epitome of retard moe, why wouldn't you watch Evangelion for that?
I don't understand where the idea of Rei being retarded moe even came about. It's just that if you need a reason to watch Eva, it definitely shouldn't be for Asuka.
Wow, I was the first post in that thread.
Weird remembering that shit.
How exactly Rei retarded moe? She's not retarded, and she doesn't emote enough to be moe.
You're right, autism moe would be more accurate.
>not even bothering to change the dates
Step up sempai-san
You know, Rei isn't autistic either. It's really strange the people keep saying that. You ever been around real retards and autists? I have. You know what they are really like? Loud, and obnoxious, usually over emoting every little thing. Naturally there's an ere of selfishness to them because the completely lack empathy for others and sympathy is a struggle. Easily irritable and can't handle a bit of teasing or jokes. You really going to sit there and tell me that sounds like Rei, and not someone else that we know?
Nah son, Rei's pretty damn autistic. I don't really know or care how fucked up the rest of your family may be, but you can't pretend that there really isn't something lacking in that mannequin that they call Rei over there.
The ability to express emotions properly all the time is what she's lacking. She has emotions, feels them, even expresses sympathy for some of the other characters. And trust me, that's not autism at all. Whatever is going on with her, pretty much all the symptoms are pointing far far away from autism.
Hey, I'm no licensed psychologist. I'm just saying that this cartoon character you're whiteknighting so earnestly over is clearly afflicted with some serious mental disorder, whether it be autism or aspergers or whatnot.
If that's the sort of thing that rocks your dick and pulls at your heartstrings, then by all means keep doing your thing.
And I'm telling you that you seem to think autism and aspergers and retardation are different things than they actually are. Having to work with special ed students is quite enlightening on this subject, and again whatever is messed up in her head it's not retardation or any form of autism.
Seeing how we're on the topic of autism
>immature manchildren sperging over a guy masturbating in public
Bro it's okay.
Nobody's judging you for having an emotionless doll for a waifu, except for maybe the rest of society.
Well, if anything Misato would be my waifu, but that's not the point. At this point I can't tell if you're just parroting things you've seen or you actually believe that Rei is an emotionless autistic girl or both. But whichever the case is, you're still incredibly wrong.
I can think of worse reasons.
I haven't. And not interested.
More like I'm incredibly right and you're just too rectum ravaged to admit otherwise.
No, more like you're getting called out for being stupid but are desperately trying to save face calling someone else mad.
You learned something new today anon. That autists are actually awful and loud and very very irritable. Be happy, not everyone has the patients to sit down and explain this stuff for you.
>You learned something new today anon.
I've learned that there is no limit to the extent Reifags would go to in defending their precious waifu against the most slightest of remarks.
>That autists are actually awful and loud and very very irritable
Takes one to know one.
>Be happy, not everyone has the patients to sit down and explain this stuff for you.
Not to worry, I can handle myself. I am interacting with you after all.
Come on friend, now you're just being stubborn. It's okay to be wrong sometimes. And something to add on to the list of things you learned about autism, they actually can't identify others with their condition because again they lack basic empathy and sympathy skills.
Do you really hate Rei this much to actually delude yourself into believing false information just so that you can make fun of her more? You can call her boring, not fun, generally uninteresting, that's fine. But let's be honest with the facts. You and I both know that she does have emotions. And you just learned a bunch about autism, so you now know that she isn't that.
Does anyone have that screencap of the femanon who put her period blood in a bottle and posted it as the OP on a Psycho-Pass thread?
We got pretty lewd during over the holidays.
Damnit, this is what happens when I post and watch at the same time.
Does anyone have that Panty and Stocking ending one?
> moment of silence for the cleaning staff
It's like not having read The Odyessy.
And he did it more than once.
I got them reversed, ah man. I'm really bad at this.
Freshly made. Popped over to /v/ for the first time in months cause I just got GTA V and wanted to see if anyone was talking about it (they weren't because all they talk about is Dark Souls and anti-feminism).
Would that be akin to starting a Call of Duty thread on /a/?
gave me chills
Same old Screenshots of people samefagging

This guy got problems.
just having them is enough
this was during madoka rebellion showings
T-Thanks, you t-too.
Here's the another version of that pic. I have the PDF and I read it. Twice.
A month later I still don't understand how and why did he do that. This is the ultimate version of waifuism.
I took this one, made me laugh for a while
