What is the Neutral Milk Hotel of anime?
>>
Overrated pretentious shit?

Madoka.
>>
Evangelion
>>
>>101047756
Neon Genesis Evangelion, it has to be a 'classic'. Madoka is only 3 years old.

This. Madoka wasn't horrible, but it was (& still is) HORRIBLY overrated.

Nope. See:

Except NMH is actually good. Not 10/10 good but pretty good.

Madoka is like 6/10. Only because of the visuals.
>>
End of Madoka

So I just looked up one of their songs. And, its really really not that great. /mu/ can go suck a dick.

Newfags will say Madoka. Anyone who has any clue what they're saying will tell you it's Evangelion. Madoka is MBDTF.

Puella Magi Evangelion: The Rebuild___ Story

Something from the 90s people won't shut the fuck up about and continues to exist today while not having made actual new content in 15+ years?

Eva
>>
http://pitchfork.com/features/staff-lists/5923-top-100-albums-of-the-1990s/10/

if you dont love all 100 of these you are a pleb and your music opinion is irrelevant
>>
>>101048734

It goes like this. After the first listen if you manage to listen to it entirely you'll think it sucks. After that it might not seem that great but not terrible. The it clicks. 10/10 AOTYAY for 2 weeks or so. Then you realize it isn't 10/10 AOTYAY but still good.
>>
>>101048520
6/10 is above average you fucking retard.
>>
>>101048866

I know you're trolling but this is /a/ some people might actually believe p4k has taste.
>>
>>101048842
>not having made actual new content in 15+ years?

They are shit, but they are new content sadly
>>
I think Eva would be best suited since both Eva and NMH are garbage.
>>
>>101048866
It offends me that people actually take pitchfork seriously.
>>
>>101048866
So, /mu/ is just a bunch of pretentious 90s kids? Nice.

>>101048892
Those were by far some of the worst vocals I've heard on a notable song. I don't know if the lyrics are supposed to be "inspired" but if they were they might as well have made it a poem. Because the shitty music isn't doing anything for it.

I guess the criteria would be something that was widely recognized as great, and that still is outside 4chan, but which is now cooler to hate here. Something where the actual content was almost entirely swallowed by becoming a joke, regardless of if you had watched it and knew why it was funny, or not.

I'd say the closest thing is EVA, but I don't think there's something that as a whole became a joke by just existing, and that was still actually praised at the same time.

Boku ni Pico

The fact that Pavement is in the top 10 TWICE makes me want to gouge my fucking ears out.
>>
>>101048900

Well yeah. Madoka is slightly above average.
ITAOTS is great but not 10/10.

>>101049025
I thought so too. Listen to it again after some time.

Not seriously considered a classic, especially not outside 4chan.
>>

pavement is arguably the best band of the 90s

their lyrical genius is only inferior to maybe Dylan
>>
>>101049124
Boku no Pico is more like Ken's By Request Only.
>>
>>101049260
If I wanted lyrical genius I'd read poetry, not listen to music.

Come on guys, it can't be Madoka or EVA, those shows are really popular among normalfags. The Neutral Milk Hotel of anime need to be something bad, unpopular and overrated by the pretentious hipsters of this board, something a normalfag would never like, something only the kind of shitposters who spam the board with buzzwords like casual, getway, entry level, /v/ or pleb would call good.

LoGH easily fits the bill

The shitty voice acting and bad animation keeps out normals, the terrible story and length keeps out most anime fans, and anyone who slogs through it acts if they are devoted in order to justify the time they wasted on that garbage.

I like all kinds of music. And I listen to it to enjoy it, not to analyze it. My elitism is reserved for anime. This music is iffy to my ears, nothing worth writing home about.

Your elitism is reserved for shit taste, nerd.
>>
>>101051218
So you watch anime to analyze it rather than enjoy it?
>>
>>101051001
Wait, are you trying to imply that the song is in anyway subpar? I could elaborate on why it's 10/10 if you really wanted me to.
>>
>>101051218
>My elitism is reserved for anime.
damn.
Do you like brostep or something?
>>
>>101051286
Some of both. I try to take more away from it that I would a video game, for example. But if it wasn't still primarily for enjoyment, I wouldn't be at it.
>>
>>101051348
It means I enjoy things indiscriminately. My library has mostly rock, some pop, and a bit of rap. A bit of indie folk stuff, and many OST's. I just enjoy it.
>>
>>101051218
This is like completely backwards. Music, as a medium, is far more diverse, experimental and less limited than anime. Also, there are a lot more objective things about music (technique, song structure, complexity, chords, etc.) than anime.
>>
>>101051329
>I could elaborate on why it's 10/10 if you really wanted me to.

What would be the point? Music is subjective, it doesn't matter what you have to say, you like it and I think it is shit. Opinions opinions.
>>
>>101051546
>What would be the point?
To wank over the band because I really fucking love their stuff.

Yuasa, probably.

Anyone saying an anime is fucking retarded because Neutral Milk Hotel is not a song or album, but a band.

RYM is shit except for the occasional list on various world music.

Sure thing. Genrewise, 3nd plays basically an odd form of post-rock (progressive post-rock would not be wrong, but that's a mouthful) that is unlike the typical 3rd wave stuff that has its focus on being atmospheric.

This song in particular, Monsoon, starts off with a blast where we have some crazy time signature shit going on with brilliant basslines, drum fills and two distinct guitar melodies woven together. The form is pretty much through-composed, so it flies through musical ideas without any real significant repetition which is a nice touch. All in all, the technical level of the players are astounding and on the writing level, the song is pretty fabulous. Tons of syncopation and time signature changes are used as well as dynamic contrast. It's quick, invigorating and pretty brilliant. 10/10.

>>101051810

I'm only aware of one scene in Japan that has bands that sound like this. If I'm completely wrong, please let me know.

Anime has audio (music, sound effects and voicing), therefore objectively it has more things than music.

You're a retard.
>>
>>101052201
The keyword there was "objective things." The music in anime is mostly just incidental and is often not composed with much effort. The most objective thing about anime is animation.
