I HAVE NEVER WATCHED ANIME that being said can anyone tell me anything about this series? Seems like a relatively tame starting point, is it any good? If it isn't, can you recommend any other exceptionally good series?
>>
It's unfunny shit.

Asking for recommendations is against the rules.
Learn to google.
Go back to your own board.

Is this an elaborate ruse to frame Space Dandy as the normalfag anime of choice?
>>
>>101296855
There's no need to frame it.
It was common knowledge that these kinds of people would be the audience before it even started airing.
>>
>>101296855
Nah I've just never gotten into anime and have been seeing the commercials on adult swim... wondering if it was worth watching

Somebody ACTUALLY BOUGHT it.
>>
>>101296855
but it is the normalfag anime choice of the season. I mean the shit is simulcasting or something.
>>
>>101296995

Very well then, I don't need more convincing than that. This show really needs to be hated this season, how unfortunate.

If you watch Hyouka now you'll never need to watch another anime.

>This show really needs to be hated

You're an idiot. Shows should be hated not because of their fanbases, but based on whether or not they're any good - to put it more subjectively, whether you like them.

>>101296641
If you want advice on where to get started on anime. /a/ is not the place to do it.

Pretty much the only good thing that's being broadcast these days.

Putting a lot of emphasis into not having watched anime there buddy are you tryin' ta play me for a FOOL?
>>
There are four episodes out so far. Go ahead and invest if you want to, but you're better off starting with a completed series like Cowboy Bebop. The wait between episodes is painful.

Jojo's bizarre adventure is the only good starting point.

Yes, sir... My apologies, sir...

Go to the /a/ wiki and look for the recommendation charts. Don't worry, many of the shows there are good starting points so pick any one that interests you, unless it's a reference comedy like Binbougami ga! or Lucky Star.

You're on your own now.

>forgetting your sage in a rec thread

Fuck off retard
>>
Why would you start with an unfinished show? And most of all, why would you come to /a/ when you haven't even watched anime?

Christ, there should be a requirement of having watched 100 shows before even posting here.
>>
>>101298334
Not my fault everything you watch is shit
>>
Haiyore! Nyaruko-san is the best anime starting point, it introduces a lot of tropes that are popular in anime and it also references famous western work in order to make the western audience feel at home.
>>
>>101298334
But anon, I forgot my sage too. And if you read the OP carefully you'll notice it's not primarily a recommendation thread.
>>
>>101298404
What relevance did taste have to this?
It's a fucking rec thread
It goes on /r/
It's against the rules and it's cancer

I've watched 700-ish episodes of Pokemon and 300 episodes of Lupin. Does that count as five animes or two?
>>
>>101298469
"This stupid bakayaro is ruining my precious board by asking about the subject matter discussed on this board..."
>>
>>101298550

If you haven't finished either of them it doesn't even count as one.

I hope you finished those 700 episodes of Pokemon when you were young, otherwise that must really have been hell.
>>
>>101298597
who are you quoting?
>>
Assuming you aren't trolling, it probably isn't the best place to start. It's a currently airing series, so you'd have to wait a week for each episode and that's not exactly a way to gain an interest in the medium. Cowboy Bebop is a similar show that's very well liked. Try starting there.

Also Boku no Pico, because you're probably trolling.

I remember when this joke was some /jp/ bullshit. Then /s4s/ ruined it and now all you idiots say that when you don't have a response.
>>
>>101298642
Man, to think I have less sway than that guy who watched ten hours worth of shitty little OVA series on youtube that one time. Must be some fault of my own and not that whole 'quantity of animes' logic.
>>
Don't feed the troll. Report, sage, filter and move on.
>>
>>101298820

Why would anyone seriously respond to shitposting? You get what you give.
>>
>>101298820
Good job getting off-topic after crying about off-topic posts

polite sage for off-topic
>>
>>101298867

Watching Pokemon neither counts for quantity nor quality.

But since you think you know better than us, why don't you just decide for yourself what to watch next+
>>
Dont compare cowboy bebop to This Shit
>>
>>101298910
That's my first post in this thread

Bump
>>
>>101298910
Right, back on topic.

To answer your question OP, you'll definitely have time to check out other stuff while waiting for more episodes. Cowboy Bebop has been mentioned a few times, but Samurai Champloo is another anime in the same vein.

Agreed

I had a discussion about this in a shitty meta thread a few hours ago OP.

If you don't want /a/ to infuriate you, I would strongly advise that you check out the /a/ wiki, google, and to use the reverse image search function here on 4chan. Also, please fucking lurk.

Help yourself, don't expect /a/ to help you, especially with such a vague question.

sage, for being a pointless thread

I bumped it because people should see that you replied to an obvious bait thread.
>>
>>101299528

Quantity of shows, I thought that went without saying. Quantity of endless similar episodes of brain rot, sure.
>>
>>101296641
So you're trying to create some sort of false flag? Good luck with that. You'll save this board yet, right? Sigh
>>
>>101299640
See, now you're describing quality. No one argues on that point and no one cares. Dear god does no one care. Best if I don't mention a certain anime genre here.

I like this anime, but it is pretty entry level. That means it is a pretty good starting point.
