Yurifriends used to be cool, when did they turn into tumblr and start making 20 threads on here and /co/?
you call them tumblr and they become it
>implying yurifags were ever cool
Nice historical revisionism, m8.
Around the time Madoka rolled in. Before that yuri was just something that people enjoyed by themselves, now if you don't force yuri into straight shows you deserve to die.
>20 threads on here
can you number them on the catalog?
rarely go there, but i only remember gunnerkrigg threads being full of /u/
not our fault that yuri has finally gone mainstream
Can't blame them for that, it's the gayest show in ages, of course they would be all over it.
>Frozen general #233
They're catching up to KS, and they had a few years head start.
I somewhat agree with their stance on harem anyways since it really is bottom of the barrel and never innovates.
If an MC is too bland and lifeless to even contribute to the story or entertainment and just get in wacky misunderstandings where they run like little pussies then they never needed to be there in the first place.
Ken Sugisaki was one such Alpha motherfucker who defied the status quo and thankfully Rito, Minato, and Issei are all at least aware of their girls.
Hopefully a bright future is ahead no matter how far off it is.
>only one series
SOUND THE ALARMS!
Oldfig yurifag here. This is basically it. We've been injecting subtext where there is little to none and pissing off "b-but muh canon" hetfags. Madoka is notable for being a show with yuri elements that is enjoyable without them. It's rare for shows with yuri to appeal to non-yuri fans (which is why yuri is its own genre and has its own board) so before Madoka, butting heads over the subject required us to derail threads with del/u/sions or hetfags to shitpost in yuri threads on /a/.
Oh god, the shitstorm when gunnerkrigg became actual /u/...
generals should mean that it stays confined to one thread. if they don't stay contained you can start shit-flinging.
What are you talking about? OP is the one sounding the alarms about yuri threads everywhere when the inflation is simply due to Sakura Trick's popularity, which is all that anon is pointing out.
I enjoy yuri shows because they're cute and comfy. I think hardcore shippers are terrible people, regardless of whether they're /u/fags, hetfags, fujoshi or what have you. Same goes for anyone inflexible enough to be offended at any sight of pandering to something they don't like.
we shouldn't have one self-contained thread
rather we should have several threads of the same anime spread throughout the board like KLK
There were yuripigs posting about straight and "straight" shows years before Madoka. All the time. The constant whining didn't come about in 2011 either; seems to be a 2013 thing
>rather we should have several threads of the same anime spread throughout the board like KLK
yes! great idea!
nothing could possibly go wrong with that.
You have a containment board, just because there's a new season of mlp doesn't mean they can shit up /co/ and same goes for yurifags
shipping started with "OTP"
>shipping is alright if it's a canon pairing!
shipping not even once
It's been feeling like /u/2.0 here for a while now, hopefully this shit dies down a bit after Sakura Trick. Het 4 lyf
It began with Madoka
lest you can prove otherwise
MLP is different. It became so toxic that it had to be completely separated from the rest of 4chan.
Yuri anime are is as welcome on /a/ as mecha anime, even though both have their own boards as well.
And don't forget those fucking mechafags constantly shitposting outside their containment board.
I'd rather have threads which offer a specific subject for discussion than generals. KlK is actually a good example of that, since there are so many people posting about it. If you had one general, it would all be waifu/husbando wars, instead of characters often having their own separate threads.
A less extreme example was NouCome last season, when silicon happened and there were separate threads just for her, because otherwise they'd ruin the main thread.
as a yuri I myself can confirm that they are not too much different than yaoi fangirls.
but so are vanillafags, even worse since they believe their perversion is better than all elses
Now all we need to do is shut up the people who complain "keep it in one thread"
No, it's really not.
Yuri was always here but it was more low key, Madoka just brought in an influx of fanatical yuri shippers.
why is this thread allowed?
Then report yuri threads and move on.
There are yes and nos to that. Yuri-het fights break out on /a/ basically daily as of 2013, while back then it seemed like people didn't care badly enough to butt heads.
When they did though, the fights were fucking retarded on both sides just like they are now. When foolz is up, search for posts with 'yuri' by username 'taiga' and read the threads that pop up for a laugh. She's always been good at bringing out the worst in /a/, that much is sure.
anyway all yuri and mech threads should be banned since they have their own board
I also think hardcore shippers are absolute filth.
Unless I I were to go out of my way to clearly push certain couples when we all reincarnate someday and I become a mangaka do NOT fly off the handle if someone tries to be that faggot and defy them.
Yes, it is.
There's a global rule about MLP outside of /mlp/.
Yaiofags and Yurifags should leave, they're the same type of trash but just different genders, though that's not even entirely true anymore since /u/ has gotten strangely feminist.
also report all mech anime threads too
I cannot being to describe how glad I am that exists.
Yurifags have been fanatical, disruptive shipping faggots ever since Nanoha.
There wasn't even any canonical romance in the show, how could anyone find shipping shit the part to obsess over in the series. Any interesting conversation got drowned under circlejerking yurifags and trolls trolling them, guaranteed.
So it's agreed:
all shippers are equally tumblr
>people acting like yuri is an actual genre
Right, and all series that come from light novels or visual novels should go to /jp/ where they stemmed from. All SFW images of girls should be posted on /c/ because that's what /c/ is for, etc.
But seriously, the rules are simple. If it's an anime or manga, it can and will be discussed on /a/. Thinking that it should be any other way is pure entitlement.
>If it's an anime or manga, it can and will be discussed on /a/.
EVA isn't mech. It's fucking cancer at it's worst.
>Muh gaint humans you can pilot is mech
there isn't a global rule stopping people posting Naruto on /a/ either, still don't mean it belongs here despite being anime.
What do you have against lesbians /a/?
Only retards still pretend Naruto is a problem.
I agree completely. To me, the "keep it to one thread" attitude really only exists to stem the tide of incidents like what happened when Aku no Hana first aired. I don't give a shit if one series has multiple threads up at once, especially if the threads are filling out. It beats having the board littered with normalfag, blogshit, off-topic threads.
Naruto is basically dead at this point.
It's kind of sad how even the most loyal of fans abandoned it long ago.
Not to say it didn't completely deserve it.
The fanbase, try and keep up.
>there isn't a global rule against Naruto
>you can't talk about Naruto
>therefore, talking about things that there is no rule against talking about is banned
he called Eva cancer too, clearly there is no reasoning with such a retard.
Not any different than
>who is best girl and why is it X
>my OTP > your OTP (i.e. het shipping)
It's a bit better, because /u/ is zero tolerance and will 100% result in a ban if you bring up any males, but there isn't any such board for hetero and yuri/yaoi shipping.
The key thing in this case to remember is that there are people who actually couldn't care less about Naruto and subconsciously gloss over threads, and the people who are bringing themselves down to the level of Narutofags by giving anything more than two shits about the subject.
That's all I'll say on that.
but aren't threads like these trying to get everything that mentions homosexual relations banned?
aren't you trying to do the same thing as them?
>Get a containment board
>Still post on another board
>There are no rules stopping me faggot
EVA is a cancer, you're retarded if you think otherwise
So mecha and VN adaptations are taboo on /a/?
I will allow image threads and yuri threads to be banned if they ban all threads for mech anime.
It's only fair, they have their own board too.
What is this "us vs. them" mentality you're trying to perpetrate? Are you actually trying to fight for some sort of purism, anon, or are you just shitposting?
What are your favorite anime & manga--top three of each--?
>Not a cancer
That's fine all it would do is remove EVA from /a/.
No like actual mecha gets talked about here.
>Eva is a cancer
Oh man, I seriously thought I was the only /a/non on the board who wished people would just stop fucking posting about that shit already.
what about TTGL and Geass
those are kinda, sort of, mecha
You missed one
I barely notice them and it baffles me that some people let themselves be bothered by it.
Yeah, fucking people talking about things I don't like. That's probably, like, an infringement of my human rights or something.
Wouldn't exactly say Geass was mecha.
TTGL threads are pretty horrible, regardless of which board then are on
>/u/ and /m/
How ignorant are you? Their sole purpose isn't to facilitate discussion of /u/ and /m/ anime. /u/'s draw is NSFW content and it encompasses all yuri, not just /a/-related. /m/ is massive in scope and there is actually very little overlap between what /m/ talks about and what /a/ talks about. You're an idiot if you think that /m/ should or wants to take the Evafags.
if you make more than one thread about any given anime they'll hate you. Yet if your thread looks like a general they'll hate you as well.
>Making 5 threads every hour about a show that has been talked to death since it's almost 20 fucking years old is completely fine.
I guess some people really do just spend their time looking for things to get angry at.
though to be fair
almost half of Eva threads are yuri and yaoi shipping anyway
Were you here when Rebuild 3 dropped?
When did I say I don't like it? Just because I'm tired of the vapid and inane "discussions" /a/ has on the subject, doesn't mean I didn't like the subject material.
I know /m/ doesn't want EVA, i said earlier that is not fucking mecha, gaint humans aren't fucking mecha.
Oh, the Chief Director of /a/ Content! Sorry, sir, I didn't realize you were here tonight. Of course, if it's an official decision from you that it doesn't count as /a/-related content any more, that's a different matter.
>gaint humans aren't fucking mecha.
pity, we could give them SnK too.
>when Rebuild 3 dropped
Those things happen, you can't expect people not to react to new Eva content being released. A lot of shows get similar barrages of threads for one reason or another, they come and they're gone. It's really not a big deal.
This, you can't please anyone.
That said, I've started generals for plenty of series because something newsworthy happened that spawned productive discussion.
/v/ learned that generals can start to suck after a few threads, when they're just circlejerking and not actually saying anything new.
Are you implying fucking cripples has nothing to do with KS?
Were you here when people were posting 5 naruto threads a fucking hours?
It baffles me that EVA hasn't gotten the same treatment, just because anime isn't completely doesn't mean it's fanbase is any better.
>/v/ learned that generals can start to suck after a few threads
and yet they got their own generals board
I'm not an Evafag and haven't been in the threads for years, but logically if there are threads being made every 5 hours, there must be something to talk about.
Eva is a gateway anime, so I'm sure the threads are fueled by newfigs all the time who get suckered into obsessing over the series by the veteran Evafags.
The Naruto incident was caused by /q/. Eva threads are made by people who simply like talking about Eva.
I agree with >>100994793
that there shouldn't be generals but any anime and manga should have as many threads as they please and if someone doesn't like it, they can make their own damn threads of their own anime.
>EVA not mecha
>implying only mecha is relevant to /m/
If you don't know about the genre, don't pretend to. How hard is that?
They were never cool. They barge into harem threads all the time since back in 2007. That's why there was a huge backlash and the gb2/u/ spam posted on their threads.
Naruto only gets that treatment because of the quality of its anime and not its fanbase.
fanbase is irrelevant, /v/ermin tend to say it actually means something, but it doesn't. Usually people who complain about cancerous fanbases are a part of even more cancerous fanbases themselves.
EVA isn't mecha, the same way SNK isn't.
>annoying shippers destroy threads about harem anime
and nothing of value was lost
Vidya generals are different from /a/ generals. A lot of the generals are always producing new content. I'm burnt out on video games that require more than 20 minutes of my attention right now, but the generals I posted in were very enjoyable. e.g., Fire Emblem.
meant to reply to >>100996488
>letting a few ill-intentioned individuals skew your perception of entire groups of people
As expected of simpleminded haremfags.
>Naruto only gets that treatment because of the quality of its anime and not its fanbase.
This is silly. Naruto was (is?) the most mainstream anime amongst western teenagers for a while and that's the only reason there was such a strong resistance to its threads being allowed on /a/.
I'd assume you're trolling, but you'll probably call me a fag or retarded or something so I'll just bite anyway and spare you the effort of looking even more new.
No, that's semantics. While the EVA units are organic, they are still machinations with pilots, and that's the key--besides, the fact that the units are organic is a spoiler and a subversion of the idea that mecha should be robotic.
Of course, it helps that NGE has "mecha archetypes, problems, and tropes" written all over it.
By that logic, Snk is now mecha.
of course they are
The logic is sound, which is pretty clear given how you can't actually discredit any of the points individually so you use a shitty analogy.
By the way, SnK really is just a mecha VN in a shounen shell.
I don't know what's the problem. /a/ isn't known for quality discussion anyway. You have neverending porn threads, fetish threads (probablt the most popular kind of threads on /a/), waifu threads and other threads that are barely related to anime or manga.
Please, don't make me laugh. /a/ is probably closer to /b/ and /v/ than any other board.
Of course it's partially anime's fault. Most shows are childish and incredibly juvenile.
Stop complaining about yurifags, because they are the least of /a/'s problems.
Besides the fact that it its storyline is more fantasy than scifi and the fact that eva's sentient which means they are just large humans.
Or do you think humans are mechs if you place a smaller human in them...pregnant women are now mechs
crossies get out
Metathreads used to be cool-
Oh wait. They never were.
Also, /u/ is one of the slowest boards on 4chan next to /po/. They have a >1 year old thread there not even close to bump limit.
I can't even tell who's more obnoxious at this point, yurifags, or anti-yurifags. I do know one thing: meta threads are shit and you're retarded for making them.
It's science-fantasy, and since the protagonists represent the largely more scientific side, PoV is more skewed toward sci-fi.
Again, the premise presented is that EVAs are giant machinations and meant to be piloted, as biological robots. Their sentience is not congruent with their intended purpose.
Except there is no science in it what so ever.
It may look the part but, no actual science is involved, it's just AT field this and human soul that meanwhile just flipping the bird to physics the entire time.
Nothing will top the fujos is shit, not event even yurifags.
