I'm not too familiar with this board, I mostly hang out on /k/ and a few others. I hope I'm not breaking any faux pas here, just looking for like a guide on getting into anime. I've been watching it here and there for the past 9 years, but I'm still pretty pleb. So I guess I'm asking for like a top 20/most necessary list of anime in your opinion?
tl;dr what would you suggest a newbie watch?
boku no pico
I guess i should include a list of things I've already watched?
Trigun (completely amazing)
Serial Experiments Lain
Vampire Hunter D
Spice and Wolf
A bunch more that just don't come to mind right now. But these are all examples of ones I enjoy enough to remember lol.
People asking this are our airsoft kids OP, lirk before posting, don't be an asshole.
Entry level as fuck. Get out.
Been there, fapped to that
Please lurk more, and please don't bump this thread.
>Spice and Wolf.
as expected of /k/
google "/a/ recommendation wiki"
Yeah but /k/ has a sticky with good info and beginner level shit. i looked through that catalog and didnt see anything for beginners. like i said in the OP, I'm not trying to russle and jimmies, i was just hoping to get some information. like if anyone has an infographic pic or a link. Maybe even a discussion of what everyone watched when they were new or what got them into anime
For what it's worth, less than 1% of /a/ has seen all of these.
Holy shit. Kill yourself you fucking cancer.
just browse and watch what seems right.
Google for more in depth details.
For every 1 of your airsoft kiddies, we have 100, shut up and learn by watching us.
Man you've watched quite a few anime already, why do you still need recommendations from us? Just go on MAL and sort by most popular anime if you want to see more entry-level stuff.
Also watch something currently airing to join /a/ threads, I recommend Log Horizon.
I feel like there have been a lot of these posts in the last day or two. It's interesting to watch them ebb and flow with the activity level of the mod and janitor staff.
What a perfect cherry on top of an already stellar post.
Eat a dick you piece of shit.
Since your from /k/ and like Trigun the most you might want to take a look at other seinen action shows. Gungrave, Berserk, Gantz, Monster
Why do you have to shit on the board? I hope a memeber of your famioy dies.
>Why can't you be a miserable cunt like me??
Still, the message is clear, i think people like you should suffer.
People like you are the reason /a/ went to shit, i hate you and everything you represent.
You are the one helping retards that can't lurk.
It's a long shot, but maybe your father will get cancer or something like that, i hope at least.
Wrong, people like you are actually the reason /a/ is shit. Instead of blaming newfags for everything, why not take a look at your own shitposting.
>Upset we're giving information in a recommendation thread
We need to cater sometimes, /a/nons.
Otherwise no one will be able to join our numbers.
We don't want you in our numbers either. Fuck off.
This whole thread is shitposting, it's against the rules.
Who the fuck wants more people? How long have you even been here?
Samefag harder. Don't drag the rest of us down with your hate.
If only there was some way to acquire information without posting.
Go back to /co/
I don't understand newfags, sometimes. For fuck's sake, I didn't make a new thread when I was a newfag. I just lurked and watched anime currently airing that I thought looked good and fun. Why the fuck do faggots like OP have to make spoonfeeding threads?
Fuck you, elitist is what keeps /a/ separate from other forums.
Not, OP but thank you for your post.
Ignore the angry children here. They will get tired of their own behavior and wander off to another thread eventually.
Why didn't the mods just create a sticky with the link to the Wiki?
Since when have you ignorant shitstains been posting?
Because braindead retards.
We actually had sticky. No, it didn't do shit. Fuck off.
There is no worse shitposting than shitp/a/sting.
Holy fuck how new are you? Are you saying /a/ shitting on rec thread is new thing? You are a few newfags supporting this bullshit threads.
It would auto-spoonfeed new users and make lurking even less necessary.
This entire board is angry, elitist children. If OP is smart then he'll take this as a warning and go back to /k/. If you want to talk about anime there are many better discussion boards than this dumpster pit.
Since /a/ is terrible right now I'm bringing down the law. From this point onwards, it is FORBIDDEN to post on /a/ unless you meet all these requirements:
-You have seen AT LEAST 100 anime complete anime series OR read at least 100 complete manga series, OR a combination of the two reaching 100. You are exempt from this rule only if you have a very good excuse that prevents you from downloading that much. (eg, your country's internet is owned by jews). By the way, NO MATTER HOW MANY SERIES you have seen in a SINGLE FRANCHISE, ALL THOSE SERIES ONLY COUNT AS ONE COMBINED. All the sailor moon series COUNT AS ONE SERIES.
-You have NEVER, EVER had any kind of romantic or sexual relations with a 3D woman or man. You are ONLY EVER exempt from this rule if said relations were with your little sister, and she was UNDER 13 AT THE TIME. I will also consider the possibility of allowing anyone who has had general relations with a minor UNDER THE AGE OF 13 to be exempt from this rule, but ONLY if they only violate the rule with ONLY minors UNDER THE AGE OF 13.
-You do NOT fap to any kind of real life pictures/fantasy/imagining/presence of men or woman EVER. Again, this rule has the exception of being okay if it was an IMAGE, FANTASY, OR IMAGINING or even PHYSICAL PRESENCE of your little sister that you pleasured yourself to, WHEN SHE WAS UNDER THE AGE OF 13.
- You are not, and have never been FEMALE. This rule is NON-NEGOTIABLE under current known sciences. There is the exception that IF and only IF you have SOMEHOW managed to go from being a man to THE LITTLE GIRL, not THE GIRL but THE LITTLE GIRL (UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE) you will be exempt.
- You are OVER THE AGE OF 18. Again, the exception is that if you were a MAN OF AN AGE 18 OR OVER who has BECOME, through science or otherwise, THE LITTLE GIRL OF UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE.
Fuck off and lurk moar.
-Your favorite anime is not, and you do not believe the greatest anime of all time COWBOY BEBOP or EVANGELION. This rule is COMPLETELY NON-NEGOTIABLE.
-Your favorite manga is not, and you do not believe the greatest manga of all time is ANY OF THE BIG THREE. This clause is also COMPLETELY NON-NEGOTIABLE unless of course it's One Piece that is your favorite manga/the manga you believe is the best of all time, in which case, IT IS ALSO NON-NEGOTIABLE.
-Your favorite character in Umineko no Naku Kori ni is not, NOR EVER WAS OR WILL BE, Ange nor any of the FEMALE fantasy furniture characters. Ange is a goth whore.
-You do not visit /b/ or /r9k/ EVER, FOR ANY REASON.
-You do not use any /b/ memes EVER, FOR ANY REASON.
-You DO NOT have a job. WITH THE SOLE EXCEPTION that the job in question is used ONLY to fund the purchase of ANIME, VN or MANGA RELATED GOODS. Playing an MMORPG COUNTS AS A JOB YOU GODDAMN WOWFAG.
-You do not EVER support DUBBING LICENSE COMPANIES by purchasing their goods, EVEN IF THE MAJORITY BELIEVE SAID DUB IN SUPERIOR TO THE SUB. If you MUST acquire dubbed goods they must be PIRATED. NEVER, EVER BUY GOODS THAT INCLUDE A DUB. This is to prevent SUPPORTING the completely terrible DUBBING INDUSTRY and to decrease the number of CEASE AND DESIST notices being sent out.
- Speaking of dubs, THE MAJORITY OF SHOWS YOU WATCH MUST BE SUBBED, NOT DUBBED.
- You have DO NOT make or participate in ROULETTE or GET threads.
I wish we could enforce this somehow.
I think i posted once when newfag eons back. The response was enough to make me keep silent for a long time until I even knew what i was talking about.
>/a/ being a dick
the system works
Let me guess, /v/? /co/?
>there are people who actually think that increasing the proportion of bitter NEET manchildren on /a/ will actually improve the quality
its not the newfags who are the cancer here
Because someone not able to fucking find anime that they like without asking by making shit threads shouldn't be welcomed. Why the fuck do they need to ask us what should they watch and LIKE? And if you can't fucking type ''anime recommendation'' and lurk to see what's currently airing and trending on /a/, you should just fuck off from here and go to MAL or other shit boards where they will spoonfeed you shit anime.
- You do not, NOR HAVE EVER, possessed a Facebook or Myspace account. These ALSO count as MMORPGs, violating the JOB rule. If you are in DOUBLE VIOLATION I will NOT be lenient.
- You do not participate in FORUMS. NO FORUM IS EXEMPT FROM THIS RULE, but the following cause a DOUBLE VIOLATION: gaiaonline, animesuki and crunchyroll.
- You do not attend ANIME CONVENTIONS, UNLESS THEY ARE IN JAPAN. Nor do you COSPLAY outside these ANIME CONVENTIONS.
- Speaking of Japan, You must NOT be BORN AND RAISED as a JAPANESE citizen. Please use your APPROPRIATE anime communication area, 2chan or 2ch.
- Your anime player MUST be ZOOMPLAYER or MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC with the codec packs CCCP and COREAVC. I will ONLY tolerate exceptions if your operating system DOES NOT SUPPORT these players fully. ADDITIONALLY, you will incur DOUBLE PENALTY if your media player is VLC.
-You MUST NOT reveal your power level. I will grudgingly accept an exception to this ONLY IF the ONLY ones you are revealing your power level to ALSO DO NOT VIOLATE ANY OF THESE OFFICIAL RULES. I will NOT be lenient in in disciplinary action if you CLAIM that your power reveal-ee WAS IN VIOLATION OF THESE RULES, WITHOUT YOUR OWN KNOWLEDGE.
- At least HALF your time must be dedicated to ANIME, MANGA or VN-RELATED ACTIVITIES. This INCLUDES time you take to sleep. This means AT LEAST 12 HOURS A DAY.
- Have fun!
We can all have a fulfilling experience as long as ALL OF YOU follow by MY rules. Any other rules are FAKE and do not have my EXPLICIT approval, NOR DO I PLAN TO GIVE APPROVAL TO THIRD PARTY RULES IN FUTURE.
Also, an extra note for FANSUBBERS: I have officially COPYWRITED "shit" encoding techniques including BUT NOT LIMITED TO: UPSCALING, XVID ENCODING, HARDSUBBING and UNCHAPTERED RELEASES. If you encode by these methods you are ILLEGALLY violating my INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY and I WILL NOT HESITATE TO DEMAND COMPENSATION VIA FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW.
/a/ - Serious Business
It does, I used to not type with punctuation, non capitalized sentences, not lurking enough, /a/ changes you for the better.
>this entire board is angry and elitist
How is that a bad thing?
Why couldn't someone just post the googe anime recommendation image and let the thread die? Why all these dumb replies
>recommending Xam'd for action
As expected from the /a/ hivemind.
You're right, this should be a dubs thread.
Because iif you let them circlejerk they convince themselves they are right, enforce shit stupid fuck.
Sooner or later, someone would say "but I already saw everything on that chart" and we would be back to square one.
/a/, actually. I come here for the occasional FKMT threads, but overall this place is second only to /v/ in terms of terrible post quality. People who actually think acting like a dick makes /a/ better are damn stupid, because obviously its not working.
Someone posted the google page and a chart and he still asked for recs. He's just a retard, like everyone else in this thread.
I didn't realize anybody could be this autistic, it's bleeding through my monitor it's so potent.
Why can't I hold all these reports?
Better than /co/ or /v/ squaller.
Where are the mods, this is the seventh rec thread in 3 hours, this has to be a new record.
Perhaps, but still bad.
It makes /a/ better for people who actually belong here. Which means you can fuck off.
Fuck off newfag.
Don't bullshit yourself.
I've given up on /v/ since GTA V came out, it's all gone to complete cancerous hell.
>because obviously its not working.
What do you mean it's nor working? You coming her 'occasinaly' proves that it fucking works.
/r/-ing /k/ anime shit
The reality is actually worse; it's them watching maybe 2 shows and then posting the chart asking for recs on what to watch on the goddamn rec chart. It's why we stopped posting it.
I like reporting, it reminds me of how I still love this board.
As i said even if /a/ is better its not that much.
Pretty much pic related
100 series is far too low. Even a newfag like me passes.
Really? I thought this was an anime board, I don't remember Moot saying that this board was meant for autistic neckbeards to spew vitriol behind their computer screens.
Your point is moot.
>makes /a/ better for people who actually belong here
>wo actually belong here
You take /a/ way too serious buddy.
If you make a rec thread, anime automatically isn't for you. If you are not *this* autistic, then anime isn't for you.
Request threads are against the rules fuck off.
I've been spending more time here than anywhere else, of course it's fucking serious, faggot.
If that was true it would blow my mind. Surely to god if someone watched everything on a rec chart they would figure out enough through the process to start deciding for themselves what they like or what to watch.
That image decreased in quality each time it's posted
The retardation in this thread is incredible, OP made an innocuous post and the shit storm it stirred up is worthy of respect.
Nah, /a/ is just a bunch of elitist faggots and the "we don't want the board turn into shit!" thing is just an excuse to be mad and show off power levels on 4chenz.
>it teaches them not to comeback to /a/ making rec threads
>implying these people have been in /a/ before to know that /a/ turns ballistic over rec threads.
It is against the rule but they just like mindlessly getting agry because they actually believe it's going to do something. When in reality they can just say "Rec threads aren't allowed" without getting angry because no matter what they do, it's always newfags who're making them.
In all the years I've been here I've seen some sad shit. This is one of those things. How have normalfags encroached on so much of our board, why do they feel that our ways have to be "corrected" or "improved". Fuck you guys. /a/ maintains high quality by not catering to newfags, trolling the hell out of rec threads, and self moderating out any cancer. You have literally flown under the radar and spread throughout 4chan, truly you are the cancer.
i didn't know hitler was back from the dead
>it's always newfags who're making them
WRONG. It's IRC and other scum.
wheres a naruto thread when you need it?
What is LURK MOAR FAGGOT.
Are you retarded? /a/ always goes autismal in rec threads
Has IRC even been active lately? I heard Shitra was finally getting doxed and pussied out.
I bet you were one of those faggots in favor of Naruto threads. Just kill yourself.
>/a/ maintains high quality
That's quite debatable.
That mod who's been deleting loli threads lately is clearly the work of IRC.
>breaking any faux pas
Threads like this are a diamond dozen.
That is a /co/ mod.
I bet you were one of those guys who get butt destroyed when the N/a/RUTO happened.
I like you. I hope you go on to do great things.
Is Naruto being discussed? I just got in, man. I just went in to see you guys max your sperg meters out, and in turn, adding gasoline to the fire.
So tumblr. Doesn't matter, IRC is still involved in inviting him here.
The one who has to lurk more is you anon.
We can argue about what high quality is /a/ was always shit, but the fact is that the board has gotten worse over time. However, I have never seen it degrade in quality as quickly as it has over the past year. It's sad really.
Does shitposting on /a/ count as an anime related activity?
What about xbmc as a player?
I am seriously considering migrating to /jp/
Why's the place so /a/ngry?
Two options to get the answer to your question:
1) Make a Naruto thread and see for yourself (not recommended)
2) LURK MORE
It's kind of like the 4chan pass of his new paradigm.
This is either a REALLY elavorated bait or pure /a/utism.
It's pasta, idiot. Doesn't mean I don't agree with it, though.
How new are you dandy fucker?
Enjoy your 2hus.
around 4 or 5 years but i must admite that i only browse /a/ around 3/4 hours.
Literally too new to post.
But that's nearly 90% of all /a/nons, faggot.
Sasuga guess newfag-kun.
No, man. I mean in this thread. I was asking if Naruto was being discussed in this thread for you to bring it up or you're just mindlessly throwing shit on people to appear like you have a point.
But doesn't /jp/ like battleships now
No, you are breaking one of the biggest faux pas actually
Then you should know to always run walls of text through archive.
If i had an obsession with those i would have already set permanent camp there, but i just can't see /a/ like this any more.
The thing is that i rarely browse the archives.
It takes 10 seconds to do. Don't try to make me angry, retard.
this board does not welcome newbies. That's why we dont have stickies. I suggest a poster such as yourself find a subreddit to die in.
Ive stopped becoming a regular on /a/ when novelfags keep spoiling currently airing shows.
MODS MODS MODS
MODS MODS MODS
It's not mindlessly throwing shit out, it was in response to
>''/a/ is just a bunch of elitist faggots and the "we don't want the board turn into shit!" thing is just an excuse to be mad and show off power levels on 4chenz.''
That same shitty argument can said by a butt devasted Narutard getting his shit rekt by /a/nons for making a Naruto thread.
/a/ was getting better for a significant part of 2013. Particularly when /q/ was axed, a lot of things seemed to go back to "normal". But I've noticed over the last couple of months or so a sharp decline in overall quality. I'm holding out for the time when it might bounce back.
If you're frustrated with today's /a/ then I doubt you will like /jp/. But maybe you'll love it, who knows.
I would like to thank my parents and moot for this beautiful opportunity to report posts without filling in captcha for mere $20.
>/a/ maintains high quality by not catering to newfags
I could come up with a list of adjectives to describe /a/ that would be a mile long and the word quality would never show up.
Actually that would extend to most of 4chan... meh.
Also to OP: If you want to get some opinions about good anime just make a thread asking about peoples favorite anime and why they liked it. Or better yet find some aspect of anime that you're looking for and ask about that. Characterization or action for instance. That way you can learn and these autistic neck beards get to discuss something as opposed to posting waifus like they do in every fucking thread.
Im too lazy for that and in fact this will be my last post of the night, im going to sleep.
>Your favorite character in Umineko no Naku Kori ni is not, NOR EVER WAS OR WILL BE, Ange nor any of the FEMALE fantasy furniture characters. Ange is a goth whore.
What the fuck is wrong with Beato, Erika and Lambda you piece of shit?
Well you can't do much about it when anime is now all about more money for original content.
Space Dandy episode 1 made /a/ worse. Ever since then, /a/ hasn't recovered.
The problem here is that the majority doesn't tell retards like >>100945585 off, so it looks like he isn't the minority.
Start to spamm and samefag if needed.
Oh well, I've never been in a Naruto thread so I wouldn't know. I can assure you though that I was mainly pertaining to rec threads.
That was Kill la Kill.
What happened? Furfags? Or are you IRC
damm /y/'s old, expecially for a glacial pace board
>more money for original content
You have got to be joking. LN adaptations have the highest sales almost every season.
You are a newfag, your opinion is invalid, shut the fuck up.
I think /a/nons like threads like these because the rage is therapeutic
KlK only created a lot of threads and with the trademark saving anime.
Crossboarders, what else?
I'm fine with being in the minority as this is an anonymous board. Just trying to educate OP on how to get information out of /a/ without triggering rabid autism.
Fuck off crossboarder.
/a/ is full of 5% elitists, 10% activists and 85% bandwagoners. It has always been this way. Bandwagoners make me sick. If only Gaia wasn't sickening.
Fucking hell. Are you guys even saging?
Then get the bandwagoners on your side again.
just look for anime recommendations in google OP or look for the /a/ wiki.
>>100945585 is indeed a retard and is most likely trolling, but that doesn't excuse any usage of spam or samefagging.
>trademark saving anime.
Triggerfags and /v/ think they own Yamakan's joke.
>Oops, looks like I made a wrong accusation
>Better call him a newfag and to get out
Make me, faggot.
I am not that one, you are the one admitting to being a crossboarder
There's two of these threads up now, and the other is 4 hours old.
What the fuck mods?
Exactly my point. The original content I'm talking about are LNs. Most anime nowadays are LNs made into animu to earn more and make sure there's already a firm audience base.
That's not even me, but it's true that you should be lurking and stop posting. You just make yourself look retarded.
Are "/ak/" threads not spammed on /k/ the way they are on /a/, or is he new to 4chan entirely?
I braced for that but it never really happened. There were way too many threads, but no real change in the board's main users.
This is the worst moderation I have seen so far on /a/.
Fuck, meant for
You must be very new here.
I doubt someone who goes to /a/ and /k/ act the same way as this faggot.
I'm not intentionally trolling anyone. If I've caused anyone distress on this anonymous internet board about chinese cartoons, I apologize.
don't call that faggot.
Apologize to mai waifu, because she's waiting in the bed and you're keeping me from her.
You give poor advice, then. Favorite anime threads are treated the same as rec threads. To else reading this, the only not to trigger "rabid autism" is to lurk more.
Your new is showing, also /a/ self-mod's alot of the time.
Now only if those numbers weren't pulled out of your ass.
7 rec threads in the past 3 hours. In one day, there are at least 3, this thread is still not deleted plus others right now. The mods just gave up.
