Hi, /a/--what do you think of your hobby becoming something trendy new normalfag nerds enjoy?
Do you care?
How would you feel if it became something even more commonplace than it's already slowly becoming?
>>
Anime had much more mainstream popularity 10 years ago than it does now in the West.
>>
Time to post more loli on /a/ then.
>>
>>101081540
Toonami is bringing it back to the mainstream, though.
>>
This is not anime. This is a /v/ thread.
>>
Not giving a shit.

Don't forget guro and gay shota.
>>
>Feminists start attacking anime
>>
>>101081580
This thread is shit but I know it'll get about 400 replies anyway.
>>
>>101081586

I really might commit sudoku if that happens. Fuck, I would hate that.
>>
>>101081579

On nights with Adultswim? Doubt it.

People will be distracted by CN.
>>
>>101081586
Like they'll do anything. They haven't done anything to Japanese games either.
>>
>it's just my opinion that its aimed at children so you can't really argue that
What the fuck
>>
>>101081586
Think it this way, if we are lucky they could kill American mainstream anime fanbase.
>>
>>101081586

>Japan doesn't give a fuck
>will continue to do so

They'd have to

1.Learn Japanese
2.Learn to draw or animate or whatever
3.Somehow get hired in a notable studio
>>
>>101081610
It's bringing it back more than it was in the past few years.

Fuck, I saw Rinne no Lagrange and Fate/Stay Night DVD sets at walmart the other day. The shit is getting mainstream.
>>
>>101081586
There's no need to worry even if they did. Japs do not give a fuck.
>>
>>101081608
Why? They complain, and then what? Studios won't give a fuck since tumblrwhales aren't their demographic.
>>
/a/ has no idea what normal people are like.
>>
>>101081497

I am a normalfag nerd so I certainly look forward to enjoying animes with likeminded individuals.
Fuck you.
>>
>>101081497
I will be happy when there are more normal people on /a/ who don't have neckbearded pedophile tier interest.
>>
>>101081586
Japan doesn't care, thankfully. It would be very difficult for any gaijin rad-fems to co-opt anime like they have with gaming.
>>
>>101081586

4chan knows nothing about feminists.
>>
It's always been mainstream in Latin America, anon. Everybody watches something or the other.

Either way there's always over the top stuff that normalfags can't handle.
>>
>>101081748
Try me fag.
>>
>>101081586
japanese game devs didn't care when feminists started shitting on them
why would jap animation studios care?
>>
>>101081497
why are people on tumblr always androgynous
>>
Don't care, anime is already pathetic and juvenile, same with its fans. Making anime more mainstream won't change anything.
>>
>>101081748
We've seen some shit too.
>>
>>101081586
Distributors would just retire those series at most. No fucks given.
>>
>>101081685

No, it really isn't. back then, anime was being released left and right. (See Macross getting butchered)

I saw Toonami as a sort of ominous sign, because of the fact that they changed the dialogue and scripts, and took down scenes all together. The people who are watching it, will stick to the Big 3 and some underrated series.
>>
I don't understand OP. Why exactly should I care what other people are interested in when they barely have an impact in the actual industry?
>>
>>101081697
When it happened with Video Games, I started noticing little things about Video Games. i started seeing how women were all dressed scantily clad, and how very few games had good female characters.

It ruined vidya for me. Animu is all I have left.
>>
Are cute girls doing cute things the next step for ponyheads?
>>
I want anime network 24/7 -- old SA catchphrase
>>
>>101081797
Play politically incorrect games then mate.
>>
>>101081497
I don't think using tumblr is a good example of normalfag because those freaks are anything but normal.
>>
The mainstream doesn't give a fuck. Popularity peaked many years ago with Pokemon and Dragon Ball.
>>
>>101081809
You act like the moeshit loving crowd is any better then /mlp/.
>>
>>101081828
shingeki no eotens is pretty popular with normals right now
>>
>>101081816
I want Locomotion back...
>>
>>101081834
At least they aren't furries.
>>
>>101081783
>The people who are watching it, will stick to the Big 3 and some underrated series.
I guarantee you at least a quarter of /a/ "grew up" on toonami and now likes the same type of shit you like.

Sure, not many of them went deeper, but to imply that some of them didn't is just plain lying to yourself.
>>
These threads are the same all the time.
>hey /a/ animu is mainstream now be scared
>it's been mainstream forever
>but what about normalfags and feminists bitching about the content
>japan doesn't care
Repeat ad nauseam
>>
It's always been something "trendy new normalfags enjoy". the only difference is how deep down the rabbithole you go..
>>
>>101081797
Better play le shiggy Gone Home, then.
>>

It'll never be ruined like video games were through this because Japan rarely caters to a western audience.
These people will only succeed in looking like faggots and they'll never gain any kind of support.
>>
I don't see "moebros" with fedoras holding presentations why K-ON is a masterpiece.
>>
Nothing can beat flinstones.
>>
>>101081873
What is the Gone Home of Anime?
>>
>>101081866

But it's fact.

Japan does not give a fuck, why should they? If I were to draw doujins and some feminist who was no place on my site or whatever sees it, why should I listen?
>>
>>101081883
Golden Age Bugs Bunny > Early Bugs Bunny > Looney Toons > New Bugs Bunny > Flintshits
>>
>>101081882
>autistic faggots in fedoras being autistic in public

But American con-goers have been doing this for years, Anon, it's just been somewhat normalized.
>>
>>101081882
Because they would be beaten or killed by normal people calling them pedophiles.
Normal view mlp as a little girls show and you're just a weird for liking it.
>>
>>101081928
Sadly, Japan doesn't give a fuck about good stories either.

It's so fucking terrible and everyone hates it.
Bugs Bunny has become Brian from Family Guy
>>
>>101081497
You mean watching television isn't a mainstream hobby? 0/10, shitpost of the worst kind. Out.
>>
>>101081947

That we can both agree.

Atleast, depending on the artist, it compensates with good art.
>>
>>101081952
I cringe every time somebody says that about anything.

I don't care even if it was true, just stop.
>>
>>101081968
I guess nothing can beat flinstones if they had to chnage it that badly.
>>
>>101081952
reminds me of some guy in youtube comments who declared himself an anime professional because he's watched "literally almost 20 different titles"
>>
Considering I have always been here and on /v/ since the beginning and that other hobby is dead thanks to non-gamers, feminists and homosexuals, I don't see anime ending up much better.
>>
>>101081586
Feminism has no power in Japan. Thankfully their culture promote docile and submissive women, the way it should be. Our genders have these contrasts that create attraction, if one goes out line, the whole process stinks. That is why no one likes butch dykes.
>>
I'm still pissed over simpsons lego, fuck you fox. Stop pushing simspons.
>>
>>101081968
They've turned a beloved, trickster trope rabbit into a liberal mouthpeice?

This fucking country.

Bow to your sensei.
>>
>>101081847
The popularity is going to go down from there. Not many anime are incredibly appealing to western viewers and they will be disappointed when everything isn't SnK.
>>
Thank you mods for being on at 7:30am
