What's your guilty pleasure anime?
>>
None. Whenever I (re)watch an anime, it's because I enjoy it, regardless of what /a/ would think of it.

No anime gives me pleasure anymore. It's just deception after disbelief after irrational hate after uninterest.

May as well start the "Can you think an anime is shit and still be entertained by it" debate right now.

The answer is yes you can. Or at least some people can. The way I see it, there are two types of people in this world. There are those that look at their entertainment as just that, entertainment. If something is entertaining then it succeeded at it's one job. Period.

Then there are those that instinctively distinguish the the entertainment media they in ways. They think of it as entertainment sure, but they also think of it as a representation of it's respective art-form. So may get entertained by something, but still admit it has no substance as art. Therefore it is still bad.

Ecchi and harem shows

>>100603894
none

if I like it, it's good
>>
>>100605171

So basically 50% of people are plebs. good to know. thinking of shit as just entertainment is stupid.
>>
>>100603894


Anime itself is guilty pleasure for me most of the time.
>>
>>100605171

There are too many Type 1 people that become "legitimate" reviewers on place like youtube.

SAO, if i had to name one. But i don't really feel "guilty" about it, like this anon said >>100603969

if "guilty pleasure" means "something i watch but would not admit to watching" then i guess all of anime counts
>>

Basically every anime I know is shit objectively, but I still enjoy them because of some traits like main theme or whatever other reason.

Symphogear and some loli series like Dansai Bunri.

Symphogear, currently Nobunagun. They're not super great, per se, but I enjoy them immensely.

Why are you here? 4chan is shit so how do you enjoy yourself being here?

And why do you even watch anime? Most of it is shit, like one out of every 10 is actually something valuable. Go read books, and don't forget to tip your dora.
>>
I don't feel guilty for what I like, but I suppose loving the hell out of Zero-Sum manga (Loveless, Karneval, Makai Ouji) fits the bill.

inb4 I'm a faggot

harems. i just find the situations funny and i haven't found one that i hate yet

>>100605801

Nobunagun is far better than it really needs to be. It's so cheap and hammy in its delivery that I can't help but smile.

You may as well ask me why I watch/read any medium you idiot seeing as 90% of anything (including books) are shit.

Your logic makes no sense.

Why do you feel guilty about watching Higurashi?

How are either of those guilty pleasures?

Any anime done by DEEEEEEEEN should be considered a guilty pleasure if one enjoys it

>>100605628

I'd rather that than be a pleb.

I probably feel 100x better when I find something I genuinely enjoy, both from an entertainment and artistic standpoint.

Not that guy, but seeing as both of those shows are shit I know I 'd feel guilty for enjoying them.

Watched it again last week.

If you enjoy something being shit, you should atleast admit it being shit.

Holy fucking shit are you legitimately retarded?
>>
>>100606075

Why are you on 4chan (a discussion site) if you think whatever you like is good? Your shallow opinion on anything is meaningless and no one is going to convince you that something you like is bad. You may as well go on some more specific fan board of whatever you enjoy.
>>
>>100606528
that implies that i watch things which are good for the sake of being good and not necessarily because i enjoy them though, so why should i give a fuck if neckbeards on /a/ think a show i am entertained by is bad?

I'm a type 2, but I don't watch offensively bad series to begin with. Not everything can be a modern masterpiece or classic, and I'm perfectly fine with that. The biggest problem with type 2s are that they become jaded, lean too much to one side and declare all of anime to be shit. This is also wrong, because anime also has its standouts, classics, masterpieces and worthy watches.

You shouldn't. It was directed to every other retard that knew something was bad but glorified it nevertheless only because he liked it.

Yeah, I said it

>>100606832

That isn't me but he has point. You are beingretarded.

Just I 90% of everything is shit, I never said 90% of everything is not enjoyable. I clearly stated I make a distinction between a shows entertainment value and it's actual quality. That's the whole point of the argument.

Regardless of what you think of the way I judge things is irrelevant. >>100606427 is a stupid post.

HAREMS

I generally only watch anime that at least has a possible plot but god damn do I love Harems. Their plots are always terrible but I don't fucking care.

Don't really have one. I don't even know why someone would consider something a guilty pleasure. If a show is bad and has no redeeming qualities, I don't watch it. If it has qualities I'm looking for, then I don't feel guilty watching it. If people on 4chan like to irrationally hate it despite not being able to form a complete thought about why they hate it, I don't care.

It's not about literally feeling bad about watching something you enjoy, it's just what people call it when they find themselves enjoying something they deem artistically lacking or without any real substance.

Onegai Teacher

It's a pathetic wish-fulfillment concocted by a very lonely teenager but I loved it so much more than I should have.

Again, it's just a figure of speech. No one actually feels guilty of for doing something that harms no one.

It's not a figure of speech at all, it refers to something you feel you shouldn't enjoy and do anyway. That is literal guilt. The specific logic of why you feel you shouldn't enjoy it or why you end up enjoying it anyway is up in the air from person to person and case to case, but the guilt is the defining and only constant feature in it.
>>
Anime in general is my guilt pleasure.
