sup /a/ im new to anime and am wondering if I should watch subbed or dubbed? or does it depend on the anime?
If it doesn't have a dub, then it probably wasn't good enough to be exported to the west and you shouldn't bother watching it.
Hello faggot. If you're new, don't make pointless thread asking retarded questions.
It would also help if you used capitalization and punctuation. This board is for people over 18 years old.
Watch subs, don't stream and don't post until you won't look like a retard.
Are you that retard from the 3x3 threads?
it depends on the anime
most dubs are bad but since you're new you don't know any better
enjoy bad dubs like they're good
That's it. I'm out of here. The shitposting has reached a critical level.
damn weeaboo, I knew I should have just stayed in fit. ;_;
Always watch subbed unless you're a dirty american casual.
WHY THE FUCK DO YOU RESPOND?
Yeah, fuck off back to /fit/.
And while you do that, try learning what the word "weeaboo" means, retard.
I just came here for a Kirby.
to piss off people like you
Do you like /b/ too? Because that's the way we are going when people do that.
I don't understand why this is considered "shitposting" or is this board like /v/ in that anything on-topic is considered shit?
>someone whos just starting to like the same things you do walks in and asks for your opinion on the things you like
>you tell him to fuck off and that he should have never talked to you
and /a/ wonders why it doesnt have friends and lives alone in the basement
Global rules 3 and 6. Fuck off.
Lurk before posting you piece of shit.
Why don't you go to /sci/ while you're at it and ask them what 2+2 is? That's how stupid this thread is.
sorry that I didnt feel like lurking for a week for an answer.
I can't tell fuck you in the amount of words I want to for posting that gif and having that little knowledge about life.
Yet you're still here.
>asks for help
>insults them by telling them they don't have friends
Nobody in /a/ wonders any of that. The more you post the more evident is that you're some newshit from some other board thinking everyone should change to please you.
>doesnt look at the filename
getting this buttmad at me over something as simple as a gif shows me your knowledge about life
>implying im OP
I just go by preference. I try to find dub, because I speak english, so I can pay more attention to the animation and what not. However, if the dub is terrible then I watch the sub. Or if I'm used to hearing the japanese voices, then I watch the sub. In the case of Rurouni Kenshin though, the fact Kenshin is voiced by a woman, and the voice doesn't fit his character design makes me enjoy the dub more. Some people like that though.
But the dog post wasn't me! I just want an answer so I can start this damn hobby
>still implying im OP
ive been on/off most of 4chan for close to a decade now. learn 2 newshit
The only people that will respond to you are in the same situation as you.
You really won't like this board, fuci off.
Go get em champ
>I can't exercise unless I know how many situps I need to cancel out a can of soda.
This is how retarded you sound.
I didn't imply you were the OP, you retarded fuck. If you're not the OP, then you can fuck off right with him too.
Just because you've been in /b/ for 8 years doesn't mean shit.
Why don't you watch both and see which you prefer? Scared people are going to make fun of you? Grow a pair and do what you prefer.
>look how old I am
Fuck off newfag.
There are tons of answers in your thread already. If you can't be bothered just go with subs for everything. This is the way it was meant to be watched by the creators so it can't go wrong, just like how most shows should be watched in broadcast order.
Also, grab a rec chart for recommendations, please don't post another thread. For every rec thread that is created, one thread that is on-topic and related to anime 404s.
>I've been a /b/tard for 9 years!! i am le oldfag and my opinion is better than yours because of that!
you said i was asking for help
i could give a shit about anyones "help" here. i just thought id step in and defend someone who was being pointlessly insulted for asking a honest question
>Steps into a discussion about something he knows nothing about
Just fuck off. This place isn't for you.
>"been on 4chan for close to a decade"
>still types like a 12 year old edgemaster
someone got picked on in high school huh.
It's not like it was even a good answer. It's the great part of OP's question, it was so broad you can't even give a useful response.
You are doing the contrary of helping the retard, lurk more.
never said anything about my opinion being better, i just said /a/ shouldnt be a cunt about someone liking the same things as them
and the only reason i brought up my age is because you did, dont pin that shit on me. none of these board have changed at all since day fucking 1
Then why respond, move on if op is retarded.
No one takes you seriously if you don't use capitalization. I don't care how long you've been here. If you type like a retard, I'm going to think you're a retard.
>resorting to grammar nazi mode instead of making a legitimate rebuttal
How about just answering the guy next time and kindly ask them not to bump the thread?
We aren't a cunt because he likes the same things as us. Liking the same thing doesn't mean you have to be nice to them, go back to your hugbox.
Because we have these threads multiple times every day.
Because he's the hero that /a/ deserves, but not the one it needs right now... and so we'll troll him... because he can take it... because he's not a hero... he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a Anonymous Poster...
No, fuck you. If you answer them you're encouraging this kind of behavior. If you answer them you are part of the problem.
Just because someone likes anime doesn't mean he can act like a retard all he wants.
Because then they come back. Look what happened to /g/.
I guess he was OP.
thank you based mods
So it's easier to evolve the threads into a 200 post meta thread every day?
PSA: Please remember to report shit threads and not to shitpost in them.
I don't. As a matter fact, i almost never post in those threads.
They will anyway. If they are meant to be spooked by /a/'s behavior they will later on.
/g/ is fine.
Do you know how many rec threads were made in the past 2 hours? Mods have forsaken us.
Why is the thread still up?
Because you haven't reported the OP enough.
You know why. Why are you stirring shit up for no reason?
>/g/ is fine.
I wish I could punch you through 4chan.
Since this thread is already so shitty, how about recommending me some good anime to watch, /a/?
But I can't report twice.
I just checked to see if you were right and the first thing I see is >>>/g/39853789.
Boku no Pico and related sequels.
Run Kirby before OP's faggotry and /a/'s rage completely consumes you.
Hello /v/ermin. Trying to stirr up some shit, I see?
Switch IPs and report as illegal.
Mars of Destruction
I thought Kirby alone would be enough to identify he is from /v/.
Do you know how much attention you attract to a thread just by posting in it? If any of you think a thread shouldn't exist, don't bother even giving the OP the virtue of a response. Just report and move on. If other idiots respond to the thread seriously then all the better, it gives more things to report and ultimately attract the attention of the staff.
Jokes on you, i have never been to /g/.
Because it's my job, i get paid to shitpost.
>tfw weekend /a/ is easily a hundred times worse than weekday /a/
And gives the retards a sense of belonging
What stupid fucks shouldn't do is debate him, just tell him to fuck off.
Kids out of school easily, morning and afternoon /a/ is bliss.
I like how I gave the op the info they need 3 minutes after posting and the rest of the thread is just people being pissed off about the thread existing
you guys know theres a hide thread button right
you can also filter out rec threads pretty easy
Thank you for your input!
3 PM is pure glory.
No. You don't realize how many newshits there are nowdays with Space Dandy, Kill la Kill and others. You have to set the example on how they should react to certain situations. If you don't, they are going to think what they're doing is completely acceptable, and they will use the lack of moderation as an excuse.
If you let that happen for too long, it will become the norm and the damage will be irreparable.
That happened to /v/, those poor souls wallowing in their own shit.
Ignoring the problem won't make it go away. It's every poster's duty to enforce the quality standards through self-moderation.
If you ignore it it onpy becomes worse.
Why do you care so much about /a/ anyway?
Just let it rot.
Because it's the only place where I feel comfortable. I pity you for not appreciating something enough to want to defend it.
/a/ is the last good place here, but it will ultimately crumble under the newfags numbers. I don't want it to go to complete shit yet.
Hello everyone, op here. I would just like to thank everyone who responded to me seriously, I know I may be a noob, but I hope to be a regular /a/ goer like all of you very soon :D
You think you're being funny but you are just making this place worse.
See? This is the kind of retards that could be posting in the board, he honestly believes someone will respond seriously to him and believe him.
/a/ doesn't even have a sticky to let people know shit like that. Calm down dude.
I dont understand why you wouldn't want to help someone new get into your hobby.
You prefer there to be no anime shows worth watching, just to spite and isolate yourself from strangers?
Where do you think you are? I was too lazy to find the picture but yeah.
This thread has apparently received the blessings of some member of the staff. Hopefully it can be shitposting containment if anything.
OK, I can see where you're coming from now. In other words, it's one thing to ignore newfags but another to keep them from circlejerking. In that case, I'm still not sure what the best course of action is.
This is the truth.
I can't leave, so I want to do my best to keep it good.
>+ 83 posts and 17 image replies omitted.
No one wants new people here, we gain nothing except unknowledgeable opinions. If we wanted that we could just go to /v/ and listen why CB is the best anime ever and how LS ruined anime by inventing moe.
Redirects spam, it's impersonal but agressive, pass the word.
dude /a/ is a shithole
the only decent places are boards like /diy/ where they revolve on talking about technical processes, helping people, and jerking off about your own projects
/a/ only has good manga threads, most of the threads on the board are just memes that are anime related
Something so basic doesn't need a sticky. All the OP needs to answer his own question is common sense.
I didn't say that. What I'm saying is that new people should adapt to /a/, not the other way around. Since we're currently having a big influx of people, it's important to enforce the rules and not ignore them.
If the season were more calm or simply didn't have any series that attracts that many people, in other words, if the majority of the population in /a/ understood the implicit rules, then yes, ignoring it would probably be better. But this is not the current situation. You can't take these things for granted.
But you can't defend /a/. The more you try, the worse it will get.
Newfags shouldn't be the problem, but people who lack common sense.
And it's said strangers that are the poisonous community members and not you?
Anyone that doesn't lurk long enough to pass off as a regular memeber lacks common sense.
If you mean simply directing someone to a different board, then I can agree. However, I've hated the "gb2/v/" trend since it started. It doesn't get rid of new users so much as it instills a bogeyman on core /a/ users that they don't need. I'd rather have a method that isn't so prone to causing useless bigotry.
>no fun allowed
What do you consider a "meme" and what's wrong with it?
I haven't checked, but I'm betting none of the other boards have nearly the amount of recommendation threads. Perhaps if there was a less dramatic reaction to their creation, you would have less?
Nah I'm not saying there's anything wrong with "newfags" posting to find this kind of stuff out (granted there should just be a fucking sticky like any other board). I'm just saying that /a/ is renowned for being complete assholes to anyone that doesn't at least appear to be a complete expert on anime. It's why I don't post very much.
I guess anything with text over an image is a may may to him.
Please stop posting, you are not a regular, fuck off.
