Is /a/ mainstream yet?
>>
Soon
>>
/a/ IS mainstream since 2012.
>>
>>101345207
I know, man. JoJo is such fucking cancer it attracted a bunch of tumblrites fujoshi and entry-level shonen faggots.

And now it's getting a season 2. /a/ will become much worse.
>>
Sure
>>
>>101345207
You mean 2011.
>>
anime becomes more mainstream as the days pass

just look at video games. /a/ will soon follow the same unfortunate fate that /v/ has suffered
>>
Where do you guys go after /a/ becomes the new /v/?

Better find someplace quick because /a/ is the new /v/.

Are we talking about /a/ or anime? Because 4chan is never really going to be accepted by the mainstream
>>
>>101345740
How about both?
>>
>>101345444
I don't think so though.

/v/ at least have that CoD or whatever first person shooter you Americans love to eat and most normalfag doesn't mind you playing that.

But you watching mainstream anime? Please, they would only say "oh I have watched DBZ when I was a kid"-thing or something nostalgic. Beyond mainstream, they won't go talking about other series. That's about it.
>>
Not mainstream enough for anyone to care about our opinions not underground enough that turboplebs don't just walk through the front door and shit everywhere.
>>
>>101345129
Madoka brought tumblr here.
Before that /a/ already had a huge influx of newfags because Geass but that died down after a while.

And after Madoka this place suffered from SAO, SnK and now KLK.

4chan is losing popularity as time goes by, so hopefully not. Leddit will take all of our cancer for them.

i hope you don't really believe this

I can tell you that /v/ has less active users than neofag and /a/ is smaller than /v/

We are getting the lowest amount of traffic since 2011, while leddit is at an all-time high and shows no sign of declining.

He's right.

With the existence of 9gag, reddit, tumblr etc, 4chan is losing presence. And that's a good thing.

That's a google trends chart, right? That just means people are searching 4chan less, which makes sense considering the mainstream attention /b/tards got a few years ago. It doesn't mean actual traffic is lower.

>>101345938
Kill la Kill isn't as popular as you think. I remember hearing about the top 20 anime series mentioned on tumblr in 2013, and Kill la Kill didn't even rank. Of course, stuff like SnK and Free! were near the top. The fanservice turns the tumblr crowd off too much for them to even bother. However, it still has good popularity with heterosexual males who watch anime.

His other project was bleeding money so he needed 4chan to support it, and the easiest way to do that is to increase site traffic from normalfags.

Reddit uses chinese cartoons now? It is official, if you use the words "chinese cartoons" in conjunction on /a/ as of now, you are and forever will be a faggot redditor and your posts will not be taken seriously.

Moot is a complete normalfag mate.

Yes, but people are a long way from admitting they like anime anywhere without an anonymous name. A lot of the cancer comes from billy bob posting what he saw on /a/ to facebook, then some random friend gets interested and finds their way here. Although this happens some, it is nowhere near as large of a problem as it is with video games. Luckily, we are still a ways off from mass billy bobs admitting they browse /a/ on facebook.

/a/ is actually still the best anime board out there. If this place dies then there is nowhere else to go, don't forget that the vast majority of the Western anime crowd is teenage normalfags and fujoshits.

/sp/ and /tg/ are more unusual letter combinations , so they're more likely to lead you to 4chan when typed into Google, rather than somewhere else.

/a/ has been mainstream since 2011. Just look at fucking waifu Christmas/Valentines shots.

And sadly, it becomes worse and worse every year. 2013 was especially bad with SnK because normalfags actually like it and came here.

Yes /a/ is mainstream, and is half polluted by tumblr, on it's way to be the next /co/. That's partly why you see so much diehard yuri and NGE threads.
