I BORROWED ONE OF GURREN LAGGAN'S DRILLS AS A GOOD LUCK CHARM
AND I'M GOING TO PUT IT TO GOOD USE
THIS IS SIMON'S SOUL!
Why are there so many TTGL threads lately? No that I mind.
TEAM DAI-GURREN'S SOUL!
oh, i was posting in a sappy thread too...
IT'S MY SOUL!
YOU THINK IT'S GOING TO BE WIPED OUT BY THE LIKES OF YOU!?
YOU TELL HIM BANANA MAN
GO GET EM BROTHER
DO IT KITAN
The fuck is even happening in this thread?
I bet you stole a kiss as a luck charm too.
on my /a/?
I know what video that's from but I can't for the life of me remember what the hell it was. Does anyone happen to know?
People are angry that KLK sucks ass so they're watching a show made by the team that was actually good.
I thought it was reverse, KlK is good and people tend to talk about the team's other projects.
Op, you need to follow through.
TTGL is shit
You a shit
Nope. If you pay attention, most people seem to think it's either OK or bad.
Your favourite SOL is shit.
this is bait
So this is the power of Spiral, huh?
Okay, I'm impressed... HAHAHA
What if it was Aria or YKK?
DIIIIIIEEEEEDDD AAAAAA VVVVIIIIIRRRRRGGIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN DRRIILLLLLLL BBBREEEEEAAAKKKEEERRRR
>Suggesting that sex is more important than a brave act of manliness
But I only watch super robot
Its really not
I finished the first episode of the timeskip and dropped it
No wait ignore that someone like that wouldnt do something like this.
We'll never forget your sacrifice, Kittan.
Say what you want about it but I don't think there's an anime that's a bigger testosterone or adrenaline injection. The fact it's hated by /a/ is mostly because of how popular it's gotten and that's an accomplishment in itself.
>mfw during initial run all the threads on every fucking board talking about TTGL
>mfw ROW ROW FIGHT DAH POWER
It was fucking awesome.
TTGL: Virgins conquer the known and unknown universe with their green virgin manliness powers.
Well I think it's OK too but pretty darn good compared to this season's other things. It's not TTGL but at least it's something.
If you believe that KlK is bad then okay.
>hated by /a/
Nah man, everyone loves TTGL, most of the people that say otherwise are just shitposting or trying to keep out normalfags
.......and so it was said, that for as long as there can be good things, someone will bitch about those good things for no reason.
Is subjectivity a bannable offence?
EVERYONE HOLD UP YOUR HANDS AND GIVE HIM YOUR ENERGY!
/a/ needs another TTGL or CG to remind the board what fun is.
VVV doesn't count for obvious reasons.
Would TTGL have ended better or worse if Nia gave birth to a child right before she passed on?
I was feeling depressed today, now i'm not.
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWHA!
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWHA!
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWHA!
ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWHA!

Simon pierced the heavens with his drill man, he fucked the universe with his massive robo dick
Better. Because we'd have a possible continuation of the hype.
why must you hurt me this why, i literally watched him die yesterday and you do this again T.T
I had been spoiled on Kamina's death, so this was the first time in TTGL I cried like a little bitch.
Kittan I'll never forget you ;_;
Yeah but they're few and far between
No, but when the main reason for not liking something is that you don't like the fanbase, it just means your too stupid to separate a good show from the people who are fans of it. I have yet to hear of a reason for not liking TTGL other then the fanbase, which is a petty reason to not like something.
IMO Kittan was the most human character of the series, and the one truly missed
The first thirty seconds of that. Chills every time
chills down my spine even after all this time, goddamn
WHETHER IT'S LAUGHABLE OR IMPOSSIBLE GREAT MEN OPEN THE PATHS OF BATTLE!
WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE AAAARRREEE!!??
(some reason bad fansub made it better at times)
Why couldn't Sheemon have gotten a happy ending?
Why couldn't he and red have used each other as rebounds before unknowingly finding true love with one-another?
Why is tengen toppa suffering? ;_;
KlaK was supposed to be that thing but it's too silly and most of us are too jaded
>few and far between.
If I recall, TTGL and Code Geeyass aired one year apart.
Which is what will make the 2nd Cour reversal all the more amazing to behold if it exists.
And since? Before then? I didn't mean between each other I meant looked at over a span of 20 years or so
>the main reason for not liking something is that you don't like the fanbase
My mistake, didn't realise that I said this cryptically in one of my few posts
Imaishi fans love making this assumption instead of considering that a person can actually just dislike the programme itself
I didn't like the artstyle, animation (aside from some explosions and such), the ludicrous masculinity of it (I didn't find it fun, just irritating after a few episodes), I was going to make a comment on not really liking the characters but I can't even think why so that in itself is a decent enough point, I can't remember shit about any of them aside from Kamina being an obnoxious wanker and Yoko being very sexy.
Fuck I felt nothing nor had a care at all when Kamina died. Had zero attachment to him as a character
Can't really remember the music or OP/ED
The fanbase isn't even that bad, nor is it ever a good enough reason to actually claim to hate a series
What's that guy doing with part of Getter?
TTGL is a poor man's Getter.
It really does suck. Man, first TTGL, and now KlK?
I feel bad for you guys.
crazy frog bros
>VVV doesn't count for obvious reasons.
Why the fuck not?
Explain to us how TTGL is a "poor man's Getter."
If anything the opposite is true.
Hey at least KlK doesn't blatantly rip other people off.
Rape and not being very fun.
true, I apologize.
Because the fun all dried up after the first season.
First cour it seemed like it was going to be but second cour didn't live up to expectations.
Whoa you just contradicted yourself there broseph
The rape may of been fun.
The damage it caused to VVV threads was not fun at all.
Talking about ttgl?
All the men she kisses die shortly thereafter.
>those free wallpapers every episode
such a GOAT show
And why is a show's funitude determined by its threads?
The 2nd Season.
Instead of being about building the Galactic Empire, as was foreshadowed, it instead was the simply 77 kiddies faffing about and yelling BAKEMONO at each other.
You didn't like the school shooting and all the suffering?
Why do you hate fun?
It took too many episodes to get to that point
The entire second half was too slow
Whats with all those spiral blackheads on his nose?
Because life rarely has happy endings.
And bittersweet endings are best
>CG - Lelouch dies for the good of mankind
>Cowboy Bebop - Spike dies
>FMA - Ed loses his alchemy
>Gits(the movie) - the major loses her persona.
>Phantom - everyone dies
It just wasn't enough. It didn't compare.
And the aftermath was really stupid.
What, you don't like crying chicks?
You mean just you. I can't be arsed to do this. Just look up "ttgl getter robo" on the archive. This had been discussed to death now, and you'll see tons of reasons and arguments on why my statement is considered to be the norm here. TTGL was a soulless, unimaginative series that simply took everything from its predecessors while sacrificing characterization and coherent writing.
But hey, at least it was flashy and pretty.
But Lelouch didn't die
>tfw no tegen Toppa Solvernia figure
do they even exist?
no one watches TTGL for good characters or writing.
it's all about the fun fights and awesome animation, you fucking faggot
But TTGL is about kicking logic to the curb and doing the impossible. Sheemon should have gotten something for all of his effort. Especially considering the show isn't nearly as much about suffering as the shows you listed.
>But TTGL is about kicking logic to the curb and doing the impossible
which is exactly why it appeals to kids
>implying TTGL isn't well written
being well written doesn't mean you have to be a Texhnolyze or Sora no Woto or have some huge complex confusing DEEP narrative.
TTGL was incredibly well paced, to the point it went through its progressions flawlessly and hit every note perfectly.
>KLK will never come close to this
YFW Kittans manly drill is bigger than simmons
>With willing hearts and skillful hands, the difficult we do at once; the impossible takes a bit longer.
>The difficult we do immediately. The impossible takes a little longer
Were the army corps of engineers kids?
If TTGL aired today half of /a/ would collectively drop it before episode 3 and spam threads calling it shit.
It is truly a sad world we live in.
Is that supposed to be an insult? Someone doesn't need to be a child to be able to enjoy a show or feel remorse for the characters that they grew attached to (and by extension, wish for those characters to have had a better outcome).
I'd go into the whole tirade about how calling others kids displays your own insecurity and such, but I'd be wasting effort on terrible bait.
how is that a bad thing.
Because /a/ has become a collection of hipster faggots that need to call everything shit in order to sate their overbearing superiority complex which just masks their inferiority complex.
I have trouble believing I'm actually seeing this thread on /a/.
Its almost like the board is good again.
Please tell me how "kicking logic to the curb and doing the impossible" is a realistic and mature on-look on life that doesn't appeal to impressionable high-schoolers with no notion on how the real world works.
but Kill La Kill is popular here
It was good until OP was finished and we realized he didn't have some ruse at the end of his dump.
Hold on there, chief, I think you missed your exit. >>>/tumblr/ is that way.
It's not a realistic look on life, who said it needed to be. Stop being such a faggot that needs all their chinese cartoons to be 2dark2edgy2deep4me and just learn to enjoy shit. Otherwise the rest of your life is going to suck giant elephant cock unless, you know, you're into that sort of thing.
it's shit. and when it was airing, people called it shit. It was received exactly how KlK was received, check the archive. Nothing has changed, well actually it has. This thread wasn't immediately shat on completely, which worries me a bit.
>This thread wasn't immediately shat on completely, which worries me a bit.
You really are the cancer killing /a/.
>having standards makes me cancer
Do you realize how pathetic attacking straw arguments makes you look?
Good thing we have people like you to raise the level of discussion :^)
>it's shit. and when it was airing, people called it shit
Yeah, nah. The only people who outright called it shit were the faggots who had the mentality of TTGL vs. Lucky Star. Gurren Lagann was huge on /a/.
so basically you can't tell me, is that right?
it's a decent show, but don't deny that it isn't directed towards children and teenagers.
still a poor man's getter
What standards are those and why are they good standards?
Can't even for a moment go back to being a kid and enjoy something?
>no notion on how the real world works
>giant robots using galaxies as shuriken
Do you know what "fiction" is? Jesus fucking Christ.
Venus Versus Virus
Great show, you should check it out.
You just proved you wasen't here when TTGL aired. Your newfaggotery is disgusting.
It's not a matter of standards. /a/ has always had threads like these and if you try to pretend it ever didn't you're just lying to yourself.
/lit/ here. that's called "shit."
Directed at the same audience as Getter.
Getter the dick out of your ass.
You are just a random faggot, not /lit/.
Check the archive right now and prove me wrong, friend.
Hi /lit/, please go away.
Fiction does not mean unrealistic.
> It was received exactly how KlK was received
So, it was received positively with a minority of shitposting that's easily drowned out by actual discussion of the show and characters?
Good to know
Do your own fucking research
>fiction cannot be mature or realistic
This isn't true. The people Getter was directed at don't exist in large numbers anymore.
This is not how civilized people talk, anon.
YOU are telling something in a first, place, so YOU should have to prove it first.
Okay, then how about fantasy.
Because half of them killed themselves.
Otaku don't have long half-lives
So you can't prove me wrong, huh?
That's another tally for the "Successful Arguments" mural
How's that new buzzword working out for you? Just because you're a jaded asshole doesn't mean that's how it was. Maybe you should check the archive.
>complains about strawman arguments
>uses strawman arguments.
Well, shit, your cohesive reasoning and well thought out arguments sure have me beat.
Well no shit it is, but that doesn't mean it's not directed towards otherdemographics, or that others can't enjoy it. How many of your chinese cartoons are only geared towards a mature adult such as yourself?
Burden of proof lies on you, friend.
>fiction must be mature and realistic
Are you nine years old or something?
Otaku don't really exist anymore anyway, all you have is people copying otaku.
Fantasy also doesn't mean unrealistic.
I love this thread
Heh. Half of /a/ was screaming that it was killing the board during its airtime.
The TTGL threads themselves were relatively tame, but the show garnered a ton of criticism outside of them.
Stop talking out of your ass.
Anyone who makes claims must back them up.
>>complains about strawman arguments
>>uses strawman arguments.
Who are you quoting?
When did I make an argument?
It has the FFVII/OoT sydrome.
It's pretty fucking good by itself, but harbored a cancerous fanbase, and a cancerous hatebase in response to that.
Seen all those, but spoiler that shit for others
It would be much improved if it was locked and stickied 50 posts ago.
Now read the rest of it. You won't love it anymore. Not with the newfags trying to be oldfags.
Define the acceptable level of realism within your fictional animated cartoons.
This kills the thread
TTGL is good.
Oh wait, I can't back that up.
>I can't understand that people doesn't speak my shitty language natively.
Are you ?
Do you have a single fact to back that up?
Daily reminder that the more vocal about how much they hate something the minority are, the better it is. If it was truly bad, it wouldn't be discussed at all. Nobody here shittalks, say, Bleach, because it's just accepted it's bad. TTGL and Eva and shit are shittalked so much because they're fucking awesome so people who don't like them get really defensive when people who do like them want to talk about it.
Pretty low if the show doesn't keep trying to force its pseudo-philosophy down my throat.
>non-ironically liking KLK or TTGL
Yup, it allows people to actually negociate. Do you even diplomacy ?
can you back that claim up
This sounds like something you'd find on an anime forum.
It's paraphrasing. It's sad that it's lost on you.
And my bad, I was confusing ad hominem with strawman.
You're just digging that hole deeper.
It is already backed up, you stupid faggot.
Can you back that ass up?
It's a widely accepted fact in psychology.
Case in point.
Can you point to where you backed that claim up, friend?
That's not what paraphrasing means.
Also insults aren't ad hominem fallacies.
How is that? Explain
You're right; Naruto is a fucking masterpiece.
Can you point to where you backed that ass up?
>insult = ad hominem
Aaaand, argument won.
It's admitted by everyone that naruto is shit. try again.
And now you know /a/'s dark secret
I don't see how Naruto counters his post. Maybe you can try to explain.
You're right, but that was really horrible to read.
>the more vocal about how much they hate something the minority are, the better it is.
>it's just accepted it's bad.
>anime older than 5 years
I'm sorry but if anyone comes into a thread like this expecting no spoilers he should go back to reddit.
You're supposed to give out at least a name for them to look up, don't leave them hanging.
Can you back that claim up again?
There is a very vocal hate base for Naruto, so by your retarded logic, it's actually the best anime ever made.
>It's admitted by everyone that naruto is shit.
>E-Everyone just likes it ironically
The final sign that someone is talking out their ass.
Psychology/Psychiatry is a pseudoscience.
Referencing anything they said and trying to take them seriously is nothing short of a joke.
can you back that claim up
How can you ironically like something?
>yeah BRO I "LOVE" KLK AND TTGL XD
>Okay, cool, I do too.
>yeah "BRO" :^)
>Yes, we agree on that
>YEAH "MAN" "BEST" ANIME "EVER", I AM PART OF THIS "FANBASE"
How does that help anything? Reverse trolling so you can samefag your own post calling it the most cancerous fanbase on /a/ and hope people pick up on your so called ruse?
What is the point of this?
But the hate is the inconditionnal majority. Learn to read anon, you are embarassing yourself.
rip in peace oh wait nvm
Except there isn't one.
Naruto, Bleach, etc. doesn't have a vocal hate base because people know they don't need to justify hating it because it's just bad.
can you back that up
>Except there isn't one.
Are you waiting for someone to call FLCL shit?
can you back that up this asking of backing that up ?
i didn't make a claim
can you back up on why I have to back up asking to back up something
Doesn't work if there is fanbase in the local area.
Anon is still right.
Yeah it is, it's directing the argument at a person's character rather than the subject matter. I called you/that other anon a sack of shit, but I made arguments other than that, unlike >>101176693
>express the meaning of (the writer or speaker or something written or spoken) using different words, esp. to achieve greater clarity.
Yeah, it is. I summed up your message in my own words.
Man, there sure are a lot of newfriends here :^)
People call FLCL shit a lot when people mention it because it's better than their favorite show; so they shit talk it. This is a widely accepted fact on /a/ newfag.
Wow, what a great thrad.
That's a nice, substantiated claim right there.
You claimed this post needed to be backed up. So back this claim. Is the backing up really needed ? If yes, why ? If not, why ?
they have no direction, ass pulls, plot holes, power of friendship, the heart
Wait, there are people that actually claim FLCL is bad? On /a/? In 2014?
This site's gone to the wolves.
the twins.. when they die fucking laughing like the alphas they are.
How did you conclude that I am a newfag from my observation/statement?
Are you mentally retarded and illiterate?
>Naruto doesn't have a vocal hate base
> it's directing the argument at a person's character rather than the subject matter.
Correct, that wasn't an ad hominem. It wasn't an argument at all, just an insult.
I claim that substantiated niceness. On behalf of my erection
>i didn't make a claim
Can you back this up?
It was a fine thread until neo-/a/ ruined it.
If everyone hates it, how's it a hatebase? Its just a norm then.
yeah, check my previous posts
Because you don't seem to understand how things work here.
If a lot of people on /a/ genuinely like it, multiply that by how vocal the minority is in hating it. That's how good of a show it really is. It's always been this way.
Steal another /jp/ meme and I swear I'll personally come beat the shit out of you faggot.
I was under the impression that many people enjoyed Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann when it was airing.
However, I believe Kill La Kill was far less favorably received.
TTGL is pre-contemporary /v/ tier, anyway. Not bad, but very overrated.
Exactly, instead of stepping up to answer my argument, you insulted my character. That's ad hominem. You really need to into reading comprehension.
According to my calculations, FLCL is a shitty show.
Get back in /jp/, you guys are supposed to hate this place.
/a/ just wants to /jp/ to come back.
Well yes, but since this is a minority opinion, your vocalization of this instead means that FLCL is a good show.
TTGL is great, but this right here >>101177257 isn't proof of anything other than the Dunning-Kruger effect. Try taking logic next semester, anon.
Ad hominem is attacking a position using unrelated facts
An insult is just an insult, homosexual
What the fuck does that have to do with anyth-
Oh, oh shit, damn.
You got me, man.
How did you conclude that I didn't understand your original point from my observation/statement?
All I questioned was whether or not you were intentionally posting FLCL images hoping that someone would call FLCL shit, in an attempt to back up your point.
I'll reiterate, are you mentally retarded or illiterate?
Eva is not shit.
TTGL is not shit.
KlK is not shit.
Naruto is shit.
Bleach is shit.
These are about as factual as an opinion can be.
You're completely justified in not liking them or even loving any of the above.
But these are "facts".
Now before you attack me, by "shit" I mean a complete lack of merit in making an entertaining and cohesive show that tries to actually entertain the audience instead of just pandering for their sheckels.
I think we can all agree that KlK and above but a lot more effort into actually being a show instead of a profit source such as Naruto and Bleach.
That doesn't mean their great either though.
It's your opinion.
>Eva is not shit.
>TTGL is not shit.
>KlK is not shit.
>Naruto is shit.
>Bleach is shit.
Wrong. They're anime.
>Ad hominem attacks can take the form of overtly attacking somebody, or more subtly casting doubt on their character or personal attributes as a way to discredit their argument. The result of an ad hom attack can be to undermine someone's case without actually having to engage with it.
You sure are correct, friend! :^)
your impression was correct
klk is less favorably received but not by far, page 1 is always full of threads about it whenever a new episode airs. It just gets trolled more because the board has waaay more posters now than it had back then
But chinese cartoon is shit anon
I post FLCL images whenever I'm also posting hard-to-swallow facts which should actually be obvious. Just something I do.
What's bad about Bleach? I've seen plenty of excellent points tearing Naruto apart but I've never seen rock solid arguments against Bleach.
Kill la Kill is shit relative to TTGL and Eva.
You're implying that I was the person arguing with you in the first place. You're also implying that ad hominem is the lack of argument, which is incorrect.
Ad hominem still possesses an argument, although a faulty one. Once again, an insult is not an argument.
Saying that you're wrong because you're an idiot is an ad hominem attack. Calling you an idiot is simply me calling you an idiot.
Please open any English Language textbook and read up on fallacies again, or feel free to google them.
Poop is shit.
I can accept this.
Hopefully the shitheads will too
Kill la kill yourself, and back your shit up.
Just because you're engaging in an argument doesn't mean no one's allowed to insult you. If the insult isn't made to attack an argument its just an insult. Go back to sucking daddy's chode now.
It's only ad hominem if it's an insult that is claiming to be an argument, e.g. "You're retarded and therefore wrong."
Ad hominem does not apply to an insult that has a valid argument along with it.
Ad hominem does not apply to an insult that is simply an insult. I can call you retarded all day, it's not ad hominem.
I sure as hell can't. Bleach and Naruto entertain their audience while pandering for skellies.
He's fucking with you. Valvrave the Liberator.
Spoiler: It's shit.
>and back your shit up
I keep all important files in triplicate. 2 hard drive disks and a flash drive.
All you had to say was English is not my native language.
I don't care if it's not your native language though.
>le "Do you have a single fact to back that up?" guy
No, because it's subjective.
/a/ is not your blog, faggot.
Is that an ad hominem attack?
Is RAID ok?
KlK has cheap animation, endless fanservice and trys hard to pander to the ttgl fan base.
You are retarded.
Cool blog post
There are people who exist that praise TTGL as being on of the best anime ever without having watched Getter or Gunbuster.
I don't care if you say you like TTGL after watching those, but people who rave about it without watching its predecessors piss me off.
So write it in a subjective way. The way it was told, we could believe the guy was an autistic 8 years old kid telling things are shit.
wow, you really have no idea what ad hominem means.
i'm not going to type anything because everyone else that responded to you already did it for me.
What does cheap animation have to do with pandering?
>KlK is not shit.
>Bleach is shit.
>I think we can all agree that KlK and above but a lot more effort into actually being a show instead of a profit source such as Naruto and Bleach.
When you put it that way, no, I think objectively KLK is worse than Naruto. KLK did not have near as much effort as any of the big three and at least they were good for a few dozen episodes.
>MC defeats group of villains
>rinse and repeat for a decade until the mangaka and the editor have enough money to retire in Osaka
Care to back that up?
Shitposting : The thread
Ignoring the argument in favor of insulting someones character is ad hominem. If you're still too retarded to get this, then nothing I can do will break you of the dumb.
>titillate your penis
>rinse and repeat for a decade until the mangaka and the editor have enough money to retire in Osaka
Can you back your willing to care about backing things up, anon ?
I'm not gonna tell you what side of what argument I'm on, but I'll admit I've one nothing but shitpost in this thread because it's all I've seen anyone else do and I find it funny.
I was ignoring your argument just fine until I noticed it would be entertaining to insult you, and that you deserved the insult.
I don't see what changed between the two situations to suddenly make it ad hominem. Semen sucker
The argumentum ad hominem is an argument.
An insult is not an argument.
>Ignoring the argument in favor of insulting someones character is ad hominem.
And this is wrong for even more reasons.
>I finished the first episode of the timeskip and dropped it
wow the second half of an anime is shit, the entire anime is shit
no but I do agree. The second half was pretty weak, but the over-the-top gimmick and music made it up for me even though again, the plot was really lacking compared to the first half.
They sort of fix it later on by explaining why Simon becomes a wandering hobo.
Go ahead and read this. This directly proves you wrong friend.
Also, fallacy fallacy.
We all do, anon, I am one of the guys shitposting on KLK, and I am actually enjoying it, even if I don't care about the show.
Am I autistic ?
RAID is generally not considered a complete backup because it only protects against disk failure.
If the computer is stolen, the file are deleted either accidentally or through security exploits, computer is destroyed, ietc. It's gone on both disks.
Consider backing up very important files on optical or floppy discs, or best of all magnetic tape, and storing in a safe place from thieves and fire.
The more you know.
Insults aren't arguments at all. Ad hominem attacks are fallacious arguments.
If you're still retarded to get this, then nothing I can do will break you of the dumb.
RAID IS NOT A BACKUP
But seriously, it may protect you from up to 3 failed drives (depending on the setup, considering an ideal RAID Z3); but it won't protect you from a housefire.
Try tape storage or mdiscs if you want to be a sort of beta tester for them.
I think this is probably just an elaborate ruse.
THIS HAND OF MINE GLOWS WITH AN AWESOME POWER!!!
>A: "All rodents are mammals, but a weasel isn't a rodent, so it can't be a mammal."
>B: "Fuck you."
My sides have left orbit.
Of course it is. That's why I'm using fun, silly insults instead of getting angry.
>but it won't protect you from a housefire.
>Try tape storage
Not following. There's no reason why a backup in a second location needs to be tape, is there?
>hated by /a/
Nigga were you even here when the eps aired. Shit was hype central.
OoT's still the best video game ever made, in my humble opinion.
IT'S LOUD RAWR TELLS ME TO GRASP VICTORY!!!!
haha. man, you spergs are way too fucking easy holy shit
Maybe I didn't phrase that as jokingly as I meant it.
No, that would be chrono trigger by far.
fuck you, TTGL is by far one of the best super robot shows ever.
Can't wait for this in SRW Z3.
Not really, but even though a tape backup machine is expensive, cartridges for the monthly full backup are cheaper to mantain compared to running a full server on a second location.
> you spergs are way too fucking easy
No I'm not. I'm actually very prudish.
Can't they both be the best video game ever made?
You mean the only one you've seen?
Wow say that to my face fucker not online see what happens then
yeah, because it's the only one
Yeah I guess but then you'd have to admit Chrono Trigger is the bestEST
Mods really need to delete this thread
All best games are created equal, but some are more equal than others.
Mods only delete threads with bad openings that devolve into good discussion, not threads with not-bad (still pretty bad in this case) openings that evolve into shitposting.
Okay but I don't see why I wouldn't just buy a high space/price ratio flash drive and stick it in storage with my irreplaceable files on it.
And then encrypt said files and upload them to dropbox, just for redundancy.
Not before I check'em
[s4s] pls go.
I hate when they do that, so much.
Is moot literally retarded? He gets 10000 applications for Janitor, yet these shitposting threads still last this long? How many people is he actually hiring? What kind of horseshit criteria does he have? This should not be happening so consistently almost 10 years into the site's life.

The thread started out fine. It's shit now, but we certainly don't need more moderators or janitors. What we need is anons who know how to report and ignore shitposting.
>go back to reddit
g-g-guys am I fitting yet ?
It's copyramen dude.
I thought it seemed familiar. Still, my point stands. The site would be so much better if anons would stop trying to act like moderators and would just report and ignore shitposting like they're supposed to. Instead we get wannabes policing the board and quoting rules and shit derailing threads even further, feeding trolls exactly the sort of attention they're looking for in the first place.
You've gotta admit reporting gets to be a pain after you've reported hundreds of posts without any of them being deleted.
>taking meanings super literally
so you have assburgers
Kicking logic to the curb is a very common thing to do.
What may be logical may not be what you truly wanna do.
and saying do the impossible is more like saying nothing is impossible, maybe in the future or another dimension that is possible
It really just means having a different mindset with which to view life and possibilities. That's it.
I'll admit that all day, but arguing with shitposters still doesn't make it any better. If you do that, you're only giving them exactly what they wanted. And Istill report shitposting and people spoiling shit intentionally and all the other rule breaking shit I see anyway. I think a lot of people report something and then sit around watching it waiting for it to be deleted arguing with the troll the whole time, so they can feel like their report mattered. I gave up on that years ago. I always hide the post I report now and then it doesn't bother me. I've done everything I can to fix it, so now I go about my browsing.
Not him, but magnetic tape is extremely cheap per GB and is very sturdy and can last a long time, perfect for archiving data, the drives themselves are expensive though.
It is implied that you are keeping them in a fire-proof safe when he said it protects you from fire damage.
You very well could use a flash drive.
>And then encrypt said files and upload them to dropbox, just for redundancy.
Sure, give your data to Jewgle goyim, even if it's encrypted. They won't keep it for 30 years until they can crack it or anything.

Fucking foobar guide by satan himself
In 30 years it won't be relevant.
Did you really have to ruin a reasonable post with that comment?
The principle of storing data on Jewgle servers is so disgusting I had to.
If you say so.
Whatever, there's free alternatives to dropbox anyway, the concept is sound to me.

All those nonfree GNU/Linux distributions under Free Recommendations.
because it sucked
>Rossiu got to live his life together with middle sister and continue leading the world after everything he did
>Simon became a hobo after saving the entire human race
There is no justice
Which are not-free and how/why?
good, simon deserved it and Rossiu did everything right.
>everyone would have died
The only free one I think I saw was Parabola.
yeah, what's your point
Surely it hasn't taken this long for someone autistic enough to point out OP's spelling error to appear?
My point was you had none.
he did everything right, though
What are you even talking about
>he did everything right, though
If you do everything right your species goes extinct?
I miss watching this show with /a/.
Those days were the best.
yeah, exactly. that's the only logical course of action.
git fukt nerd
>What are you even talking about
What else was on there that's free? Debian doesn't count.
Free does not mean "0 dollars" when it comes to software.
There is tons and tons of software that costs 0 dollars but it's still proprietary, i.e. nonfree software. There is also free software that can cost money, like RHEL or Ardour.
Free software means free as in freedom, not free as in free beer.
He did nothing wrong.
At least he got to be with his waifu in the end.
> Debian doesn't count
Why? And how's Arch not free? How is BSD not free? Fedora? Gentoo? Suse?
Explain as if I was 5
b-but logic doesn't apply in the TTGL universe.
Those distros aren't proprietary, are they?
It says right there you compile gentoo yourself from source code.
For fuck's sake.
I miss when /a/ did fun shit like that almost one minute long eva gif with all thos memes from 2007, like "how do I shoot web"
When did we start to think ourselves to be above fun?
>How is BSD not free?
I can disregard this one immediately anyway since I was referring to GNU/Linux distributions.
For your question, read
>Explain as if I was 5
Isn't that one of those rabbits? Maybe you belong there.
Fun belongs on s]4[s now.
Gentoo steers the user towards nonfree programs.
For all intents and purposes all of those are free as in freedom, Debian comes with 0 proprietary software even.
The FSF doesn't consider them free because they either:
1) Ship with proprietary software included, this includes nonfree firmware.
2) Have proprietary software in their repositories or have documentation on installing it.
Because of these reasons many people do not consider them 100% free software.
No one really gives a fuck because all of those either are WAY over 99% free software, with the rest being nonfree firmware, or in Debian, and if you make it so Gentoo's case, 100% free software by default. The proprietary software in the repos or the documentation installing it doesn't mean shit to anyone but the FSF.
Ironic shitposting and forced memes are not fun.
You mean like "how do I shoot web"?
I should have known.
That wasn't forced, it was naturally born.
You don't really compile "Gentoo" from source.
The stage3 standard installation is actually downloading a tarball with "gentoo" on it, unzipping it, and chrooting into it. From there you just have to compile the linux kernel and do some minor configuration then reboot and that's that.
Portage is a source based package manager, so everything you install from it you compile. There is some exception where there's binaries available though, e.g. for Firefox or Libreoffice, where compiling on a slow processor would take an extremely long time.
>Psychology/Psychiatry is a pseudoscience
Is this nigga serious
It's a soft science. Some people look down on them. They can be wrong more often than hard science in some cases because performing experiments on human behavior and the like are not as easy to perform where all variables are the same.
Hard sciences can have issues with validity too, but they aren't meant to be accounted for because a diligent, honest experimenter should not have them.
My friend, he attempted to discount an entire field based on rhetoric and personal bias.
Yes, I am serious.
Psychology/Psychiatry is complete pseudoscience. They observe people's personality traits, emotions, and behaviors, and from that deem them to be neurological diseases without any actual science to back up their claims.
Examples of real neurological diseases would be Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Migraines, Huntington's, Epilepsy, etc.
Examples of pseudoscientific fabrications where personality traits, emotions, and behaviors have been wrapped up into umbrella terms without any science behind them: Bipolar disorder, AD(H)D, Intermittent explosive disorder, Oppositional defiant disorder, Borderline personality disorder, etc.
There is many times where there is clearly something neurologically wrong, for example someone hallucinating and having severe delusions, but it is of unknown origin at least to psychologists/psychiatrists. This is harmful because they then apply a pseudo-scientific fabricated umbrella label to them like schizophrenia, because they do not want to leave them with "We don't actually know but there's something wrong with your brain".
The "symptoms" of all of these labels are real, just like hate and happiness is real, the label is the issue. Because the label, or "diagnosis", holds 0 scientific credibility, and is in fact harmful to the person on the receiving end of it.
Perhaps your child who misbehaved and didn't pay attention in class, something very typical and not abnormal for children, wouldn't be so fucked up if you didn't get him on a steady dose of a neurotoxic drug like amphetamines and put him in retard classes because a "doctor" said he had "ADHD".
Perhaps the lady with a legitimate neurological disease would have received real medical treatment if her incompetent quack doctor's didn't mark her off as having a somatoform disorder after failing to diagnose her. Too late now because she's dead.
Rhetoric and personal bias my ass.
Go read my post above.
You're describing a relatively new movement within psychology and using it to try and discredit psychology as a whole.
Surely you see a problem with this?
Oh sorry do you prefer, say, Freudian psychoanalysis?
>You're describing a relatively new movement within psychology and using it to try and discredit psychology as a whole.
I have only explained what psychiatry and psychiatry have been doing since their beginnings. None of that stuff is new whatsoever.
You've singled out a few perspectives. There are many perspectives to psychology, such as behavioral, Biopsychological/neurological, and Evolutionary, which all have roots in more hard science. Do you think the conclusions that came from the skinner box are illusions? Do you think the flight-or-fight response is made up? Even those things can be measured with predictable results. Neurotransmitters and hormone levels are things that can be measured.
I'm pretty sure there's more to psychology than freud and ADHD but what do I know, I'm just fag studying programming
What the hell happened to this thread, is it against the rules to like fun things now.
No, but it is shit taste to praise TTGL.
>Neurotransmitters and hormone levels are things that can be measured.
This is not a part of psychology or psychiatry though, that is neurology. Have you ever been to a psychologist or psychiatrists? They don't even do physical tests. Furthermore, neurotransmitters are not a thing that can be measured, there is actually no real way to tell how they are functioning in your brain. "Chemical imbalance" is a commonly used term, when in reality it's an unproven hypothesis that has gone way too far.
Go to a psychologist/psychiatrist (or anywhere you deem fit) and ask for a physical test to see whether or not you have a "Chemical imbalance", that should be a fun scene.
>Do you think the flight-or-fight response is made up?
This is a scientific fact separate from psychology/psychiatry and has to do with biology. Psychology/Psychiatry referencing it, often when explaining to people the adrenaline rush they receive when having a panic attack, does not mean anything.
We're proud son.
Probably hitting people that this aired almost 7 years ago.
I can only imagine what happens when Geass and this hit their respective 10 year anniversaries. Rozen Maiden will have aired 10 years ago this year I think.
Like five people on /a/ still care about Rozen Maiden. There's probably more overlap between desuchan and /jp/ than desuchan and /a/.
I loved that little laugh he did.
you dont seriously believe that do you?
Yeah, whatever the fuck happened to Rozen Maiden 2013? did it just fall under the radar.
I do. Were you not here for the RM13 threads? I may have been exaggerating, but my point still stands.
Desuchan is still alive? I thought they got taken down when someone spammed CP just to report them.
It's not as if people didn't know it was airing. They just didn't care.
It's up now.
all I remember is one thread the day the first episode came out, and it was literally just DESU spam for old time's sake, no discussion.
There was a surprisingly small amount of desu spam I'd say.
It wasn't exactly a happy show. I'm still sad there won't be another season, though.
Whelp, you got me there, sort of. I knew these tests existed, but I didn't know they weren't that useful.
Still, how can you have psychology and take out biology, chemistry, and animal behavior, though? You've taken out development of the child, the effects of neurotransmitters on behavior, brain functions, sleep patterns, the biases that people tend to have, and all sorts of important things. How are they not psychology?
You may as well claim that all JRPG's are shit, and then say Dark Souls and FFT are not JRPG, or something to that effect.
Can you look at a list of statistically valid information and call it all not psychology or false to pursue the truth, and not trying to prove whatever you learned first to be right?
The doll wars were fun.
Shiver me ballsack
I think that's because Suiseiseki was in like, what, two episodes? She got no screentime.
But they destroyed the anti-spirals, the definitive ultimate enemies who trascended time and space.
How they could possible beat that?
inb4 Spiral Nemesis That's not how it works
Suigintou fags were the most annoying posters.
She got some, at the least.
Keep being obnoxious, maybe someday people will just stop caring.
What about symphogear though
Maybe not that level but it's pretty fun
Only watched rozen maiden season one. Are the 2nd season and new anime worth watching?
>the day the first episode came out,
Quicksub was the hero we deserved, if not the one we needed.
Season two is a sequel to the first season, but it doesn't follow the manga.
2013 is an adaption of the sequel to the manga, but not a sequel to the first seasons.
I see. Ok, if I had to pick one of those two, which one am I going to have a better time with?
Why not pick both?
As long as you read the first manga before watching the 2013 series you'll be fine.
Eh, just don't feel like it. Manga sounds alright to me, though.
>Eh, just don't feel like it.
What are you, some sort of casual normie?
Used to marathon several series over a few days, got burnt out and now I can only stand to watch a certain amount in one sitting. My backlog is huge despite all the marathons. Every time it gets larger I feel happiness at having something to watch and regret that I have so much to watch.
It's getting pretty late, so I've probably contradicted myself here and there.
Watching/reading half a series is worse than watching/reading none at all.
Holy christ what happened to this thread
Nah, I watched Legend of Korra and lost interest halfway through the first season. I'd rather not finish it.
I'll read the manga and see if I care about the other animes.
I'll never be free, I love it somehow
Screenposts and quotes of TTGL, then shitposting, then one "back those claims up" changes the whole thread, then /g/, then rozen maiden
Don't forget the ad hominem
Well alright then
What if Simon died instead of Kamina?
Woah, we went back full circle.
Kamina would probably be understandably upset at the loss of his bro, he may or may not bone Yoko, Nia would be forever alone, Kamina would have slapped Rossiu's shit, the rest would probably be similar.
if Simon had died they would have all followed shortly after. Remember? It was Kamina who said that it's always Simon who pulls him out of the shit his big talk gets him into
>yfw i literally just finished watching ttgl for the first time
Fuck that was great. Feel like i could take on the world right now
Please take on a train.
>Nope. If you pay attention, most people seem to think it's either OK or bad.
Not at all true especially not with the sales and the artists seemingly addicted to it
Aaahg! Why did you make me watch it again?
Why did you make me remember that there will never be a continuation and Simon will keep being a dirty hobbo for the rest of his life? ;_;
They never would have beaten Lordgenome. Kamina was one of the weakest fighters on the team, Kittan was second strongest behind Simon and he wouldn't have stood any real chance either
This guy knows what's supo
So... what other shows are as fun as TTGL? Its the only one that got me hyped as fuck so far.
In a show where hotbloodedness is what gets you ahead? He was retarded and would have lost a battle due to not having any tactics, but he wasn't weak.
The most "Fun" anime for would be Baccano! but it's nothing like TTGL at all
He had too much self doubt. Remember when he was talking to Yoko about how he'd be killed if he ever got into a fight where he couldn't rely on Simon.
He was essentially the team bard, did rousing speeches, hyped everyone up, made them fight their hardest, but was more a figurehead than a fighter
>The most "Fun" anime
Holy shit did you just say that with a straight face
Yeah, IMO it is the most fun anime I've seen. It's just a different kind of fun than Gurren Lagann.
>asking for recommendations
and I got one thank you, gonna check it out
Not him but there's nothing wrong with TTGL if you're into that kind of shounen type shows, but the Getter Robo comics (the later arcs beginning with Go, and not definitely not the clusterfuck alternate continuity ovas) just simply has a more interesting lore about the human ethos. The setting is also more militaristic and professional and there really is no room for naivete.
Many people for example has described Getter Robo Go as being a hybrid of both real and super robot series, while taking the best aspects of both. Like I said, there's no naivete, so no young whiny teenage pilots like those found in Gundam.
With that said, I think Toei's Gaiking LODM works better as a comparison to Gurren Lagann instead of Getter Robo.
I rewatched Gurren Lagann recently. I haven't watched it in years, and I was worried it wouldn't live up to my first experience. But damn, it blew me away all over again.
Actually just finished rewatching the movies about an hour ago. Now those did not. I really don't remember them being so awful. The pacing was absolutely horrendous. And of all the new footage, only Super TTGL was worth it. I guess this shot too.
>only Super TTGL was worth it
That was pretty much the whole reason for the second film.
That and each member getting their own Super mech.
Do autists really think people enjoy Gurren Lagann for the riveting plot about Getter Rays?
People enjoy Gurren Lagann for the high emotional intensity. I love Getter, but this is something that it totally lacks.
>Yoko wasted her amazing body by becoming a single principal
At the very end, why do Simon, Rossiu and Yoko look like they're in their 50s or 60s, while Gimmy and Darry look like they're in their 20s? They can't be more than 10 years apart.
>That and each member getting their own Super mech.
FUCKING GURREN GRAPEARL, fools.
Is there a super-attack better than I HAVE THE BEST WIFE IN THE UNIVERSE SWING? Is there? I would love to see it because seeing so much wrongness in one spot would make my day. Sure, many /look/ better, but I can't say there are any that /are/ better. There is nothing that beats smashing down the embodiment of despair for the glory of your wonderful waifu.
And this is truth.
She was happy, I think.
Even if she, being an anime girl, probably died a virgin due to not being displayed as being in a relationship.
>Kamina gets killed because he NTR'd Simon
>Simon totally forgets about Yoko the instant Nia shows up
I never totally forgave Simon or Gainax for that shit. Yoko really got shafted as a character after Kamina bought it.
I thought it was really stupid how they kept all the minor character Gunmen pilots alive. Showing like 10 different mechs really dragged out that scene and taking away those characters' deaths really robbed them of what significance they had.
>Implying Getter Robo doesn't have emotional intensity
>I thought it was really stupid how they kept all the minor character Gunmen pilots alive.
I sort of liked that because it gave weight to the sacrifices of those that died to allow them to stay alive.
Pretty much all the characters in Getter are edgy psychopaths (literally in Hayato's case) or dull and uninteresting. It's hard to really care about them. Getter also doesn't have the infectiously optimistic themes that Gurren Lagann does, it's far more cynical.
Getter is entertaining, but it's not really moving.
>Pretty much all the characters in Getter are edgy psychopaths
>but it's not really moving.
You sound like someone who didn't read the manga but watched the edgy ovas.
Musashi wasn't a psychopath, neither was Ryoma. Neither was the new team (Sho, Go, Gai) in Go. Neither was that team in Arc.
Hayato was just a student rebel. Not a psycho.
>it gave weight to the sacrifices of those that died
Kittan and the nameless Grapearl pilots? What it did was make it seem like there was hardly any sacrifice made.
And come on. Would you even remember Zorthy/Kid/Iraak/Maaken/Jorgun/Balinbo if they had never died? They'd just be "those guys". They're probably just "those guys" for a lot of people as is.
Why didn't Simon end up banging Yoko?
>Why didn't Simon end up banging Yoko?
He thought he could do better than a random good-looking sniper. Gotta go for the gold and choose Earth's god-king's daughter.
Kittan mainly, I meant.
Well, I can see where you are coming from, I really do, but I'm not sure I can really agree.
'sides, really loved those mech designs.
Maybe I am glad they survived just for that. Does that make me a bad person?
Pretty much all the characters in TTGL are one dimensional hyperactive monkeys (literally in Kamina's case) or dull and uninteresting. (See the guys who died).
>Getter also doesn't have the infectiously optimistic themes that Gurren Lagann does,
You're right. Getter Robo is not optimistic at all especially considering what the getter rays truly are, but to say that it isn't moving is kinda false. There was plenty of moving moments with all the sacrifices that went on at everyone's expense.
So then you agree that people watch and enjoy Gurren Lagann for different reasons than one might read and enjoy Getter Robo, and thus it is stupid to bring up Getter in every thread about Gurren Lagann?
