Why do you guys here hate on elfen lied so much,
when it's the exact sort of moe blob you fucks lap up?
>>
>>101447365
Jokes on you, I haven't even seen it and don't know what you are talking about.
>>
It's not cute though.
>>
>>101447365
I liked it, the general community of /a/ is shit, don't take there opinion
>>
>>101447365
>the exact sort of moe blob you fucks lap up

Don't project on me, please.
>>
>>101447365
i enjoyed it. i agree it was a clusterfuck of shit but it was enjoyable if you liked Lucy (Not Nyuu, i enjoyed watching her get her revenge because it was actually justified not just oh i'm going to be edgy to be an edgy fuckhead.) but /a/ hates it because it's entry level, poorly animated compared to standards, and has a pretty clusterfucked plot on top of what is commonly percieved as the teenage angsty linkin park anime club top 10
>>
>>101447365
Elfen Lied manga is not bad. Anime is meh, but most hate comes from the "edginess" appeal to teenagers and thus its being newfags from gaya must see along with gory classics like Ninja Ressurrection etc.

That said, EL hate is length outdated, since by now majority of newfags did not even hear about it.

And at spring we`ll get Elfen Lied 2 that is actually likely to be a decent anime as well based on the manga, at the very least better than other shit this spring.

>Elfen Lied 2
wut?
wait a second, are you trying to bait me again?
>>
Didn't we have that thread yesterday?
And I remember at least one more from last week.
Are you a samefag dong it again and again?
>>
>>101447828
Way to reveal yourself as filthy crossborder newfag

Because its tries too hard to be edgy. The fanbase for it is also abysmal.

It's funny because Elfen Lied has a bunch of moe blobs too. Nana is the only good thing about the show.
>>
>>101447904
For all the criticism - "edgyness" aka violence and gore in Elfen Lied is justified and is plot relevant. Its by no means a bad story and manga, though it got bad reputation thanks to "lol blood!" fanbase.

People dont criticize Bokurano or Narutoru for "edginess"? Elfen Lied got a bad end of the stick because it has more cute girls.
>>
>>101447983
Except people do criticize both for said edginess; especially Narutaru. Elfen Lied is brought up more because it has more insufferable fans than either Bokurano and Narutaru.
>>
Deadman Wonderland is the new "edgy shit", so its ok to like Elfen Lied again, especially as new one is about to air.
>>
>>101447900
There is nothing filthy about crossboarding.
thank you anon-chan[\spoiler]
>>
>edgy


Will this word ever die?
>>
>>101448126
Just as soon as a new one is created and circulates.
>>
>>101448148
Splonky

There's your new word
>>
>>101448126
Butcher-fag, please go and stay go
>>
Because you've probably only seen 10 anime total and that's why you consider it good. Elfen Lied fans are annoying because of their lack of knowledge on the medium and their asinine crusades to defend a TV show on the internet.
>>
>>101448126
When it means homo. Then we'll just rebrand it again.
>>
>>101448175
But it exists. You have to try harder than that.

I think it's been too long since people have watched the show so they forget why it was considered shit.

It's because the plot and characters were retarded. I seem to remember bullshit like a pissing scene in there was well?

Most people can only remember edginess when they think of it but I really don't think that was the reason at all. The edginess did let newfags latch onto it who considered it one of the best anime of all time. Which was another matter.
>>
>>101448240
That's people's online handles
That's not a word

Use it

>Elfen Lied is splonky as fuck
>>
>>101448204
This might have been correct years ago, its not now. I highly doubt any person whos only watched 10 shows would by any chance have EL in his list. Let alone, i trust most of the /a/nons here did not even watch it/read manga.

Hating it is dead meme, since there is no EL "fanbase" left. Its like comming to /a/ and trying to -desu
>>
>>101448295
>Its like comming to /a/ and trying to -desu
But that still happens

and threads last for a while
>>
As you can see from this thread - Elfen Lied is timeless masterpiece, still provoking a engaged discussion of people decades after.
>>
>>101448295
You'd be surprised, given how popular it is in the western anime scene. It's often name dropped with Toonami and Adult Swim shows by entry-level mongoloids.

>meme
What the fuck? Get out.
>>
>>101448281
I almost want a userscript that changes any instance of "Edgy" to "Splonky" now. Good for a quick laugh.
>>
>>101448295
>Hating it is dead meme
It was never a meme. /a/ is not a hivemind.
>>
>>101448281


I like it.


Man Beserk is splonky as fuck
>>
>>101448416
Hating Gundam Seed Destiny is one.

/a/ is not a hivemind, but theres plenty of newfags trying to fit in that catch and imitate whatever retarded shit someone is shitposting.
>>
>>101447365
>when it's the exact sort of moe blob you fucks lap up?

This shows that you're simply hating on things you don't understand.
It you even paid the slightest attention to the demographic you'd be able to see the difference, but instead you've simply shown that you never even attempted to consider that which you are attacking

get fucked nerd
>>
>>101448468
Seed Destiny is legitimately bad though. Elfen Lied may be mediocre, but it's not Destiny tier awful.

Disliking it is more of a /m/ thing and still not a meme.
>>
>>101448563
Proof of my statement. Confirming you were not here when Destiny aired.
>>
>>101448617
Except I was. /m/ owes its existence to that awful show, due to how much it flooded /a/.
>>
>disliking something is a meme or bandwagon effect

Sure thing, OP. I guess people not liking Gundoh Musashi or Guilty Crown is a funny internet joke too!
>>
>>101447365
I really just didn't understand the frequency of nudity. Not complaining necessarily, but it sometimes it would just make me life. Like "Oh I'm being attacked and now all my clothes are being ripped off" and things like that. Holistically I didn't think it was that bad though.
>>
>>101448988
crap I mean sometimes it would just make me laugh*
