Which would YOU say is better?
Browsed both. Honestly? /a/, hands down.
It doesn't help that /jp/ers are butthurt about it and troll here.
/a/ is better?
in b4 captain obvious
I hate both.
I'm going to go back to browsing both in a bit. I just have to work up the motivation to start hiding 3D/I wish I were Japanese bullshit.
/jp/ = /a/
But /a/ is fine this way. I just miss vn threads.
But /jp/'s vn threads are just about how Message is fucking them right in their arses...
ANOTHER GURREN LAGANN THREAD, SUCH A MASTERPIECE
OH DID YOU SEE THE NEW BLEACH/NARUTO/ONE PIECE CHAPTER THIS WEEK
They are both shits.
I kind of want /a/ back to what it used to be.
I'm an old-skool /a/ loyalist. 4 year veteran etc.
fuck /jp/ (although I don't mind it either, truth be told).
Whichever created liquor.
/jp/ has all the ronery guys and hardcore weeaboos, and browsing there for too long makes you hate Japan.
/a/ is left with horny bastards who nitpick every show.
I for one like the split
/a/ but thanking /jp/ they took the tohou fags out
/jp/ being full of newfags.
But so is /a/ with all the shitty bleach and naruto threads.
I learn about Japanese culture from anime and manga so /a/ for me.
Well, with lots of VN stuff filtering back into /a/ anyway, /jp/ is more for netgame threads than actual VN discussion.
/a/ is better.
/jp/ is just a big Tohou flood. And what's so special about Tohou, anyway? They're just lolis.
/jp/ - 4chan's dump for all the shit that just doesn't fit in.
I lol'd cuz it's true.
I troll and combofag both but /jp/ rages much more about it. Here people just make fun of me.
/a/ because i'm such a lazy faggot i don't like having to use effort to find /jp/ on my mozille extension since /a/ is right at the top
/a/ is better when we actually discuss anime. I go to /jp/ every once in a while. There is an anon porting Tsukihime to the DS there.
/a/ rarely has threads about the things in your picture. Except Kaiji on release days. Stop being biased.
H/a/lf the picture's slightly on the biased side, I would say. For good measure, I would add GL shitstorms on the /a/ side and maybe a Naruto picture.
Even with that shit in /a/, however, I still prefer this board to the oversaturated weabooness that is /jp/.
Since when did anybody on /jp/ want to be Japanese?
But that's just my personal preference. It's plain to see now that /jp/ served its purpose as a filter.
So you'll just be scrolling through Touhou threads in one tab ad nauseam?
There's Vinland saga threads every day now that translation's picked up
You're right, it's not as if we have 5+ 100 page long Vinland Saga threads a day.
/a/ because I get my Touhou on the Touhou board.
I saw that thread
Even if I salute the effort, it's just useless. I don't have so much time to pass in front of my DS.
/jp/ has funnier memes. Like the chubby faces.
Same thing would have happened in the old /a/, that's because the translation picked up. Nothing to do with the split.
They just save them from 2chan
/jp/: DOUBLE NIGGERS
/jp/ is everything I used to hate about /a/.
Every other thread used to be TURKEYHANDLE ARGUMENT or TOOHOE IMAGE DUMP, but now those are gone.
Threads stay around for longer, and they're actually threads I want to have stay around for longer, because they're not the above-mentioned threads.
You guys bitched about it at first, but I praise moot, and have praised him since the first day he did it, for this dicission. /a/ is now better than it's been in a while, and I enjoy it.
Thank you, moot, for doing what few mods actually do: make the site they mod better and more enjoyable. God bless him.
Don't deny it you faggot.
How do I tried to save face
Agreed. This is a glorious era.
Everyone go in /jp/ right now. 3 Touhou threads on the first page
Aww, I don't want to have to share Cirno with /jp/!
Relax. You still have Onsokumaru.
Yay Bleach threads at every hours, countless "Gurren Lagann is a perfect masterpiece that goes beyond every other anime" threads and it's slow to boot.
Really a glorious era.
/jp/ in a nutshell:
-SUP GUISE TOUHOE THREAD LULZ
-Melty Blood thread #1267
-SUP GUISE ANOTHER TOUHOE TREADZ LOLZ
-More 3D women
-SUP GUISE YET ANOTHER TOUHOE THREAD LULZ
God damn you're a retard.
I am in /jp/
All my threads are hidden.
Been like this for a long time now.
Kaiji, I still cry manly tears for Tonegawa
Slayers? I fucking love slayers, season 4+5 (?) fuck where?
I don't really read alot of manga, but if you're punching a horse you must be a pretty cool guy
Although you got to love /jp/ for taking care of the touhou and i wish i were japanese ;_; stuff
Butthurt /jp/ fag detected
/a/ is better
less touhou shit
TYPO, FAGGOT. EVEN GRAMMAR-NAZIS LIKE ME MAKE THEM.
DON'T BITCH AT ME WHEN THERE ARE PEOPLE ON THIS SITE THAT TYPE LIKE THEY'RE ON MYSPACE.
Not really, I hate /jp/ too, old /a/ was infinitely better.
honestly i browse both. I probably spend more time on /a/, but the fact that i'm a touhoufag makes me run back to /jp/ every so often.
I remember when everyone went to /jp/ when it was new saying its superior and is the new /a/ and shit.
LOL HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGE
Strange thing about GL: there are many less threads about it since the split. And 75% isn't troll-related...
The real bad thing about new /a/ are Bleach and Naruto threads. Just ignore it.
You need more and better examples for your /a/-representation. Just those 4 aren't nearly diverse/awesome enough.
Old /a/>>>>>>>> /a/ > /jp/. Tohou threads didn't bother me (Funny shit is, Tohou has a manga), and I loved ronery, waifu, she sees your penis, etc threads. I used to laugh so much when I came to /a/. Now I only grin at Purple penis guy threads. Also, Visual Novels should come back here.
Dammit. I want Old /a/ back.
Not even that many Bleach threads and they're saged and trolled within ten posts
reprted. fuck off /jp/fag with your touhoushit faggot faries.
We never really needed touhou/VN/whatever after all.
With the exception of 3D women, these were the things I loved most about old /a/. It's just not the same now that they're in their own separate board.
a /vn/ would have nothing but spoilers
all thats left of /a/ are the trolls and janitors
The GL threads right now are much more aggravating though, before it was only harmless trolling but right now we have to hear again and again that "GL IS THE BEST ANIME EVER"
LETS PLAY IAMP/MELTY BLOOD AGAIN.
I guess I'll post these again
/jp/ used to be good but it sucks now.
you forgot the /n/ threads (i.e. "lol we should nuke Japan again"; "why are japs so racist?")
you forgot MANkoto threads.
>>10068647 Old /a/
That wasn't "old /a/"
Fucking newfag detected.
/a/ should've been made 2D, and /jp/ made 3D.
That would've solved everything.
But it'll end up that way at this rate regardless of official changes. 3D shit is infesting /jp/ badly enough that it's just hidden threads after hidden threads.
This is quite the obvious troll. Also I enjoy both and this is not anime.
To tell the truth I just took the /a/ part from another comic
Requesting said awesome images
reprted? how mean. Touhou was on topic.
Also not true /a/ wise
You have a point.
At least, /a/non has still the sexiest and a lot more on MsPaint Comics' authors...
If people stop trolling then others will stop defending it in such an over the top manner.
Fuck off touhoufag.
read the rules, touhou fucks off back to /jp/
If you found any of those entertaining you really need to kill yourself.
I am so about to edit this for better accuracy.
Posting my opinion in an opinion thread. If you don't like it, that's fine.
I wish I were japanese ;_;
Not the same person, good sir!
Many of us are happy that you faggots have your own shithole to post the same pictures over and over instead of ruining /a/.
Yes it was you fucking retard.
I was thinking about saging for thread not anime/manga related, but I don't really care; I hardly ever visit /a/ anyway because I'm uninterested in any of the anime being discussed anymore (2 shitty seasons ftl). So I just go to /jp/ for the VN and touhou threads
Honestly, the touhou threads in /jp/ are much better than the ones /a/ used to have.
No it wasn't.
That was the /a/ that caused moot to split it in the first place.
The old /a/ was golden compared to it.
Screencap of /jp/
anyone watch the new naruto ep?
Also, no one says "sage for touhou shit" or whatever.
fuck off back to /jp/
We all know your opinion by now and do not consider it it to be of much importance even after the 10000th time you have voiced it. You are really just repeating yourself over and over. Get over yourself, faggot.
/jp/ is so weeaboo it hurts to look at
Neither. /m/ is superior.
sage for shit faggot faeries
/v/ >>>>> /a/ = /jp/
Sorry, don't watch Naruto. I did, however, see Kaiji ep 22!
Screenshot of /jp/
You are a retard, fucking tripfag.
Also, Touhoushit, GTFO.
Same underage ban that somehow constitute the core of /a/. That's fine.
Thats from a few days ago, right?
Swing and a miss, again, good sir!
Said the pathetic weeaboo tripfag.
Also, GTFO touhoushit.
I like the way things are. We just need to condition more newbies into how old /a/ works, and you have it back. Just without visual novels and 3D.
tl;dr Kill NaruBleach.
I browse /jp/ more than /a/ now. Touhou doesn't bother me at all. The split reveal lots of hidden faggots than I imagine.
What I don't like about new /a/ are the daily dose of Bleach threads (what's up with that?), gurren lagann is good/bad/why/i just watched threads, sextoko/rika (we don't need one EVERY SINGLE DAY)
Even if I miss the ronery threads I'm kind of glad they are gone, made you depressed and was pretty much the same shit every time. We still have waifu threads and stuff like that from time to time, although it's quite rare. /a/ is a bit slow sometimes, but then again it was too fast before the split in my oppinion, you can actually have dicissions and threads last longer then 30 minutes.
It also seems to be more loli now.
>The new /a/ is full of newfags discussing Bleach.
haruhi season 2 '08
What the hell, I just took a similar screenshot to make the same post.
Are we meant to be impressed by your continual posting of faggot fairy images?
There always were BLEACH threads, it's just people seem less likely to care about them anymore.
Ignore the pathetic butthurt /jp/fag
>Even if I miss the ronery threads I'm kind of glad they are gone, made you depressed and was pretty much the same shit every time.
There was only one ronery threads a day (two if we're lucky) and came at a select hour. If you didn't want one, you should have hidden it and would have been good for the whole night shift.
>tl;dr Kill NaruBleach.
Although the particular one I'm quoting might be one of maybe three active that aren't so bad.
you just sound like a newfag in /b/
also, posting sexy Cirno
Gentlemen, I think the results are obvious
/a/ is the same thing it was in the past now.
It was slow as fuck in the beginning but people came back here after /jp/ became old news.
The only difference now we don't have touhou or ronery threads anymore. And this is a good thing.
And YOU ARE the newfag.
I still have never understood the enormous distinction that was made for visual novels. All that 3D, waifu, japanisgreat, and assorted shit can gtfo /a/ forever, how exactly did Emperor m00t decide that 2D visual novels (of which a good deal of anime are based off of) should be shunted off to another board? Even Touhou I can understand a little being sent to the reaches of /jp/, even though it's all so convolutely retarded in how it arrived to that point.
Yet, to this day, light novels are /a/ related, but visual novels are not.
How the hell do you just pop out like that?
/a/ is 100 times better than /jp. It's full of weeaboos and gaiafags, possibly even more gaiafags than /c/. It's also much slower and have the same fucking threads on the frontpage for hours.
That's Jesus Yamato for you.
Visual Novels must suck hard.
It WAS superior. /a/ was full of gaiafags or some other form of garbage that came from who knows where. Shit was unreadable for the first week. But then it went back to normal.
>Even if I miss the ronery threads I'm kind of glad they are gone, made you depressed
Hahaha, oh wow.
They see me trollin', they be hatin'.
No anon, you suck hard.
I know. But to me, who does not participate in visual novels, it doesn't make any difference whether they are here or not, so I won't defend them.
He has a script running that notifies him every time the text string "Jesus" appears on any board.
I dont care for the split, I just really hate touhou
as much as furries
and for the same reasons
I counter your argument with sexy Reisen
POSTING MYSELF ON AN ANIME BOARD
The only thing that can kill /a/ is the newfag summer.
It's the worst time of the year.
Maybe this explains a lot about society in general. Nobody cares about something that doesn't affect them.
Well, let's wait for moot to ban Spice and Wolf for being furry or some dumbshit. It's about the same logic, so it's not impossible.
I see what you did there
Last summer had the best night shifts ever, though.
Moot has to do something about that. Remember last year? Oh lawd
/a/ Timeline. wont mention 2k3-2k5
2k6: shounenstorm Onepiece/bleach/Naruto are HEAVILY discussed everyday, Jojo is underrated but discussed, Akagi is underrated, but discussed, higurashistorm, haruhistorm, STILL Fatestorm, Underwater ray romano, other underrated stuff, lots of tsukihime an tohou, Death note/Busou renkin kicks in around end of year.
2k7:Shounen is somehow forgotten, Lucky star shitstorms, Gurren lagann shitstorms,Death note, Busou renkin, Mirai nikki, Hayate, Seto no hanayome, Hidamari, Sayonara setsubou sensei, school days, lots of tsukihime threads thanks to translation in first half of year, Yume miru kusuri.
NEWFAG SUMMER KICKS IN, Shitloads of memes like makoto, King of gets, Giovanni, suddenly cirno is ultrapopular (not the tripfaggotry). Jojo is more popular, Akagi is more popular.
2k8: split, /a/ has reached about tripple of the users it had in 2k6, what used to get along in 2k3-2k6 is now pretty divided. the current state is calm, compared to how explosive it was during newfag summer.
Why don't you makes some more ham fisted political allegories regarding your moronic opinions?
/jp/ was cool in the start, but now is boring as fuck.
It's just big a Touhou image dump.
Uh, its anime. If somebody posted furry art of it of course that person should be banned or go to furchan. That was a kinda retarded example
>NEWFAG SUMMER JUST KICKED IN, YO
Fixed it. Well, newfag summer won't bother me.
Spice and Wolf is anime. I'll defend that.
I won't defend furry porn.
Because you'll be on /jp/ circlejerking it up with your homosexual partners, right?
/a/ has a nigger tripfag
HOW IS THIS SO?
I liked it better when this tripfag was banned
You sort of missed the point of that statement, but that's okay. I've lost interest.
Epic Linux Hockey Nigra?
He browses all of the boards.
It was awesome
"STOP IT GUYS, YOU'RE TREATING TOUHOUFAGS LIKE HITLER TREATED THE JEWS" (USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
Yeah its horrible when a something isnt served on a golden plate with sugar on top
Shiet, if you have time to expect to be entertained, why not try to entertain yourself already?
No, I'll be doing my study abroad for my degree.
I got banned for 4 days. I've been posting on /a/ for a long time, sans tripcode. You couldn't have missed me, too much.
HOW COME HE ISN'T B&?
There is no real point in arguing with somebody who never intended to look at the brighter side of things anyway.
ban all tripfags
tripfag = touhoufag 100% of the time
Now that's just racist, you fucking cracker.
Calm down, you guys. No matter what happens, I'll always be there for you.
Even in the midst of the Code Geass R2 threads?
Heh heh heh
In my defense, the guy's post required only about 4 key terms switched around to get the desired effect.
When anonymous seriously starts comparing Touhoufags to furries, and there's not a hint of sarcasm to it, then even I facepalm and have to go overboard.
I don't really remember shonen being "heavily discussed" back in 2k6. Naruto has been saged as long as I can remember unless it was a manga scan.
Then again I was still more of a /b/ faggot back in the earlier stages of 2k6.
I hate the Touhou games.
I'm a VN fag, thank you very much.
Fuck of Cirno. Its my time to shine ;_;
>Ran all tripfriends
>tripfriends = touhoufan 100% of the time
You love Ran, too?
Meh, both boards are better than /a/ was before the split.
I do think that /jp/ needs to stop consisting of 80% touhou. I like that stuff and I think it's completely overboard how much of it gets posted.
also called the time when slowpokes realize that new people find 4chan all of the time, and somehow pretends to rage over it.
you're the best tripfriend of all.
Anonymous stops reading these threads once tripfags take over them.
I don't recall Bleach and Naruto NOT being sage-d either.
They were always held in contempt.
I like Touhou games but I've never participated in a Touhou thread. Not. Fucking. Once.
Btw still can't beat Embodiment of Scarlet Devil
touhougags = furfags
the object of their interest may be different, but both are equally as annoying. And that's all we care about.
Good fucking riddance, I like /a/ the way it is now; no faggotry aside from the occasional butthurt /jp/ raid
There was exponential growth that summer, which is why /a/ is currently at 10 million posts.
You remember what you want to remember.
I didn't know people still used 2k, thought it only lived on in counter-strike
What do you think will happen this summer?
"Newfags" calling others "newfags"
I don't participate in the Touhou threads, either, though I like the manga and doujin.
But I can do that shit on my own time.
anon does not approve of this shirt thread.
tripfags can gb2/irc
Hey guys, how's it going?
Oh no different boards for different things I can't possibly like either.
I just wanted to say- OH SHIT!!
You got here too late for any meaningful contribution, nigga.
WHY WONT YOU STAY AWAY
GET THE FUCK OUT
Are those laughs of sarcasm or what?
If I could kill someone on the Internets, Straywolf would be the first.
/jp/ sucks face the reality loser
I just seen this thread and laughed heartily when I seen the size of the thread.
You know who really loses?
We all do.
Because we can't get rid of the trolls on both sides of /a/ and /jp/.
What's wrong with her face?
Newfag summer kicked in since 2006. Lurk moar.
This thread's dead
it's been long dead
Fucking Touhoushit trolls, reported.
Amazing thread. It's good to see how much we have accomplished now that it's at its end.
Do you nigger tripfags know eachother? Like that guy from /v/? Dwayne?
This thread is now the longest one I've ever made.
Even beating my Potemayo rape story thread!
THAT WAS YOU?!
Weak. Come back when you get people arguing for well over 330 posts.
I seem to be brimming with content
I've started ronery threads and incest threads with over 200 replies.
I made the OP image on the right and it had fucking nothing to do with /jp/, dammit. It was intended to shut up the people bitching about how /a/ sucked now baww baww, and I just snatched random shit off the front page to do it.
I'm also the guy who posts this every once in a while
sages don't count.
anyone seen the new episode of bleach?
Lulz, I admitted I stole your image earlier
If /jp/ was /a/'s heart, why is it so shit?
a heart alone won't be able to live
