Can we all officially agree that Nagi no Asukara is best anime of 2013/ and 2014, best PA Works anime, and Mari Okada is best anime script writer?
Nagi no Asukara is Evangelion of our Generation

No, that would be RDG. But this one is near.
Since you dont watch NnA you did not have to force yourself to post a repply.
2013 was an awful year, but the second cour is much best than the first one, so it's not far fetched that could be the best of 2014, though it's still three seasons too earlier to say for sure, but yeah it's the best for 2014 so far.
I agree, though they didn't do anything remarkable before
So, since for one to appear, other need to disappear. Manaka needed to die so that Akira and Miuna can live.
So Hikari next ep murders Akira so that Manaka could live?
>so it's not far fetched that could be the best of 2014
Anime doesn't work that way.
>that would be RDG
Why? Unlike talentless hacks as Butcher, she proven herself with her original works.
Both Ano Hana and NnA are great. Hanasaku Iroha had potential to be great, but did not live up to it, though still good.
She is highly proffessional and talented, able to make even dumbest script look mature and and any character drama being, well, believable and dramatic.
Confirmed for not watching the show. RDG has best story of PA Works shows. It started slow, but the show was great. Though the whole show is basically a premise to real story.
There's no doubt that Nagi is the best show of this season, I'm talking about the second cour, and next season looks dreadful, that would make already half a year without any real competitors for the post, unless you're some edgy teenager (aka TMfag) in this case you can go fuck yourself.
Unironically agreed OP
Its THE shit.
You must be new to anime. A show that begins airing in 2013 is only eligible for consideration as a show from 2013.
Nobody reply to this bait
Okay anon, there's always that guy.
Elfen Lied 2 and Black Bullet are pretty ok plot wise if you can look over what appears riddiculous premise.
I bet you hate JC Staff too
>next season looks dreadful
How can you say this when there is an anime directed my Yuasa adapted from Taiyo Matsumoto? The only plausible conclusion is you have shit tastes.
Did you even watch the show? Of course, not.
If a show has cours airing in 201x considered the best part you can't go back to 201xsomething, when started airing, and claims that was the year regardless of how weak the show was and ignore the competitors of the time, it's just stupid.
I've watched the show and I disagree with you, everybody here disagrees with you, stop trying to elude yourself.
Ignore the newfag trying to fit it.
Detective Conan started somewhere back in 1993 and is still the AOTS every S. What matters is how interesting what airs is, as its compared agains other show that air in same time.
The date of 1st cour is only relevant in retrospective much later.
What was the show about again? My memory serves me bad, can you summarize a plot in one line?
Keep being new.
Shows are only counted for the year they first air in.
Girl is the vessel of the god who will destroy the world and this is the last chance to stop it, she already went back on the time two or three times, there's a twin pair with a dead one that is materialized with them and I doubt anyone would now this one if they didn't watched, that shadow thing was a brhue.
>Keep being new.
oh the irony!
You guys keep being stupid, if it's having episodes worth being watched in X year, it's the best of X year, not of Y or Z year when it started being aired. Stop having the mentality of an infant.
Not him. I just looked her up. She's been apart of a lot shows I watched. But honestly her failures easily outweighs her success.
She is probably one of (if not the) the only good female script writer in the industry though
Its a matter of fact that NnA cannot be considered for AOTS this season or AOTY this year. You can say its the best thing currently airing but the only years and seasons it is eligible to be consider AOT are the one it first aired in.
Except it doesn't work that way when it comes to any list or poll here or in glorious nippon.
You took your time googling it.
You were proved wrong. Stop bitching.
Name any. She is script writer, mostly just adapting existing works. Her only own shows are the ones listed in post you repplied to.
Even if shit shows like Sakurasou, her skill is still seen. You cant blame her for shit source material or directors.
I didn't know the original author, but I've to ask, are you fucking serious about a ping pong anime being the best of the year?
No, but we can agree that its OPs have the best lyrics writer, right?
The art was pretty great, but I really can't see this being anymore than a True Tears-tier drama that you'd forget in a season or two.
It's hardly the best show P.A.Works made to begin with. Hanasaku Iroha had much more substance and depth without resorting to love dodecahedron to make up for a lack of coherent plot.
>making good music
Almost had me there
Thats not Yoko Kanno aka Gabriela Robin
Completely serious. It is not really in anyway a typical 'shounen sports' manga. The guy drew Tekkonkinkreet. Try reading the manga you'll see.
It reminds me of Shinsekai Yori, which also got some aots considerations.
It's too early to say, but it definitely has a chance.
what about the sound of her wet pussy while being fucked by tentacles?
Better than crossgame?
Disagree. Hanasaku Iroha had great characters and superb execution, but its problem was actualy LACK of substance. For most part it was random sol episodes without clear plot line, ending exactly with multiple love triangless, needless drama and ark about characters no one cared about.
It had great potential, but went wrong direction in the end.
pfft, you think its a good reference? Aside the animation it was total failure.
Yeah, the preview image of NnA and SSY looked quite similar, with similar colour schemes and uniform design and giant eyes.
SSY was an adaptation, while NnA was an anime original, which allowed it to make full use of the medium.
i really like it
and i usually only watch cute moe stuff
Its not even comparable to that kind of thing. If I wanted to describe the manga in an /a/ way it would be something like a hipster DEEP manga that happens to have people playing ping-pong.
>What is Shinsekai Yori
Not best anime for me but its great so far specially as I was just expecting a generic love triangle.
I think Okada has been solid so far and have no problems with any of the episodes.
Its way better written and balanced than SSY. SSY in the end was just another pulp fiction horror book. Not a real sci-fi, not a real drama - too full with "shocking" moments and loosing/changing narrative multiple times.
Ummm, what? Kawada's not a slut.
It is good but it is definitely not the best anime of 2013/2014. The first cour was really bad up until the ending.
Remember when people though Angel Beat was gonna save anime?
Remember when it turned out to be a cliched mess (Maeda has produced the same shit again and again) with 24 episodes worth of content crammed into 1 cour?
Remember all dat forced drama. (MC dieing about 3 minutes before help arrived).
Remember when people still claimed to like it just because of the music?
Shit? It had few great moments, but thats about it. Too bad. It started and finished somewhat good. Everything inbetween however...
But Shin Sekai Yori flopped. Big time. Flopped harder than a Magikarp. And I don't get why, because from what I heard, it was very good/
>Remember when people though Angel Beat was gonna save anime?
I don't remember this at all.
>Remember when people though Angel Beat was gonna save anime?
You mean retarded Key/Maeda fags from Gaya/Mal or whatever? Same fags that hyped LB and Refrain? In short, Idiots that dont belong here?
Sadly, its still the most financially successfull PA Works anime. 36k copies.
SSY is one of the best anime ever written. Nagi no Asukara is absolute shit compared to it.
Hopefully the VNs will be better.
That's not Yuki Kajiura
Here's what the actual anime industry committee picked as AotY already
>2013 Attack on Titan Wit Studio Tetsurō Araki Yasuko Kobayashi
And since they're not faggots behind a computer screen and what they say actually goes the opinions of you nobodies don't matter so argument over.
>Can we all officially agree
So who's the official hivemind registrar that keeps track of such things? Are there many forms to fill out? Do our collective decisions ever expire? Do we have to renew them periodically?
Seriosuly? This is better than SSY? I honestly can't believe that at all. Even if SSY was ""just another pulp fiction horror book" like you said it was, I would much rather watch that over the underwater version of True Tears that NnA seemed to be before I dropped it about 5 or 6 episodes in last season. I really can't see this being even close to as good as SSY unless some sort of amazing twist or change in direction happened.
>SSY is one of the best anime ever written
You probably started watching anime a year ago and have seen maybe 100 shows?
I see you dont read much. Probably amerifat, if you though pulp horror like SSY was well written. I bet you think King is great tool
>animated soap opera
If that was the case, anime would really need to be saved.
Cool. Now go back to gaya.
A very good soap opera at that.
I bet you the same guy that dropped Sasami since summary said it`d be a show about incestous NEET.
>no rehashed setting
>good world building
It easily deserved it really.
I think you are confusing this with White Album 2
NnA is a masterpiece of human relationships, full of subtile strokes of Mari Okada`s genius.
Also, the best scene was not the end of this ep, but kitchen scene in the previous
>I must shit on what he said and make myself feel secure
Lets stop being immature anon.
Now you are just trolling to hard. At least be more subtle. Plus, SnK is already irrelevant, shouldnt you pick something newer? SAO is getting a new season and Mahaoka is at spring. That should keep you occupied for a while. Too bad KLK and Space Dandy did not live up to narutards expectations.
Name some anime better than it, please.
SSY was well written in comparison to the rest of the shitty medium. I'm not comparing it to novels, dumbass. Learn to read.
>Name some anime better than it, please.
There are two ways this can go, I list anime then you just say they are shit regardless of if you have seen them or I don't list anime and you take that as proof of your point somehow.
>pandering to fujoshit and //cgl/ landwhales
>MuvLuv/Chrome Shelled regions rehashed story
>rehashed 2nd hand Sawano OST, he seems to be new Yuki Kajiura in lack of originality
>complete lack of meaningful plot and world building, author having no idea where he goes with the story and just self inserting his memories of being bullied at school
True Tears was also original (the plot has absolutely no relation to the game). And I guess /a/ considers it a failure because the wrong girl won.
White Album 2 is Maruto's masterpiece, you only watched the prelude, you don't know anything, stop.
>SSY was well written in comparison to the rest of the shitty medium
Hardly. Eveb styff like Humanity has Declined, which was times better written. The only good think about SSY was setting. It sure slightly better than shit like Psycho Pass, but only because the later is such shit.
SSY is compared to other novels, since it was a novel. Albeit not a very good one. Even RDG is better written.
Stop replying obvious baits anon.
>pretending he has actually read the novel
So, it gets worse?
Huh? Why did you even mention that? What does that have to do with anything at all? I watched Sasami, I wasn't that guy, and even if I was, it would have nothing to do with anything. Thanks for the totally legitimate response, you sure made me reconsider my opinions on this show and SSY. Dick.
Do you write reviewes for ANN?
The true end of the story happens five years after the events of where the anime ended.
If you're being ironic and saying it's shit, fuck you fagget.
Its shit. It remains soup opera (in fact, it intensifies) and becomes even more stupid and melodramatic.
Its shitty Eroge that tries to be korean drama.
>he's trolling hard because he's giving a popular show positive feedback
Again stop being an immature faggot and learn just because you like to fight the power and you must shit on it because it broke away from your secret club and everyone likes it now doesn't make it bad.
Yeah its so fucking irrelevant. You know, vol to vol selling a million + copies on their first week out, a car commercial for it reaching 10 million+ views already, still wining most of the 2013 anime awards. Mmhmm it's so irrelevant.
You guys never read anything and still claims that, can't get more pitiful than that.'
SSY isn't really pulp horror, it was a pretty thinly veiled allegory for imperialism and colonial relations. The author is even an economics major. SSY is Japan's Dune. Dune did it better.
The author is insurance salesman. He writes 2nd hand horror books with story stolen from elsewhere. All his books are just gore for sake of it.
Dune is better than 99% of Sci-fi/Fantasy, it isn't really fair at all to compare something like SSY to it. While I personally loved the SSY anime, I wouldn't say it was a masterpiece, I don't think anybody would - not to discredit it entirely though, because as I said I thought it was quite good for anime. Dune, though, that is a masterpiece, and other things should not be judged relative to it, unless you enjoy disappointment.
>SSY is japan's Dune
I'm pretty sure there are better and older books that would qualify for that.
Yeah, SSY sure was an edgy horror gore fest, I felt like I was watching Saw or some other American horror movie. Oh wait, not I didn't, because SSY wasn't a fucking 2nd hand horror book with gore for the sake of gore. Did YOU even watch it? Clearly you didn't, because you have no idea what you are even saying.
I think I find this most funny. For the most part most articles, blogs and things you read about SnK say it has above average animation and does what it was intended to do and deliver action.
Yet on here people so desperately try to shit on it's animation. Guess I shouldn't be surprised though. Anything remotely positive it tried to accomplish you just shit on. Ultimately making you like biased hack who's opinions should not be taken seriously in the slightest
>because SSY wasn't a fucking 2nd hand horror book with gore for the sake of gore
But thats exactly what it was. Clive Barke novel with rampe up gore and gay.
I just realized, I have to wait a whole week for the next episode
my mistake, intended for
Confirmed for not even watching the show.
And this must be the 100000 time someone brings up the gay, and will be replied to that that had a well explained reason.
You are trying to hard. Subtle, be more subtle. Also, no one cares about SnK anymore. Should you not focus on Space Dandy or something?
Miuna x Hikari will never happen but now Miuna x Uroko is happening.
It was for fanservice (or in case of book/manga plain porn) reason. The "culture of controlling destroyctive desieres" was just excuse to include in story as much porn and gay as possible. Its not like SSY is his only work that suffers from it.
There are also blogs that praise Naruto for it's amazing art.
>no one cares about SnK anymore.
and yet you think that some how any show mentioned in this thread has more importance and acknowledgment then it does right now.
And this thread started with discussing why it's not aoty. Because aoty was already given out and it won by a landslide.
Pretty much everyone died in the show, in gory way, mosly for no plot relevance but just readers bought the books exactly for gore and sex.
The story is based around simplistic idea, not actially developed, relevant over the length of the show that some anons for whatever reason find good, probably since read too little and think anything that has even slightest bit of typical sci-fi plot is masterpiece.
>space dandy 2
Great thread as always guys.
If you try too hard to pretend being narutard, you are no better than real thing. Just stop.
I have read tons of dystopian fiction, I won't say it's on the same level but it held its ground damn well.
I do agree, that the story could have been better going by the footsteps of the first episodes, but I'm not a writer.
Post quality equivalent to anime quality.
sorry, after this I couldn't read anymore.
Please try again.
I am happy NNB won. But yeah Snk should never be mention in a thread because it starts faggot wars just like SAO and Watamote.
This is literally every thread. So every anime in existence is shit?
The ironic thing to highlight how dumb you are is the fact, that its not even SnK that won Toyo anime award of 2013.
Its even worse - its Kuroko no Busugay and SAO
Sorry what is that? Oh yeah, the show that will be forgotten 1 month ago.
Nope, KlK is.
Don't reply to this post.
Nah, it only happens in shitty irc bait threads that try to praise shit anime for the lulz
>Its even worse - its Kuroko no Busugay and SAO
SnK will be up for the 2014 award. Already won the kobe award.
NNB will never be forgotten. This will also make it a gem. Hidden gems are the best and you will only know about them when someone makes a thread or if you watch then when they air. You should know that anon.
You mean Nagi no Asakura?
I actually non ironically like this show. I just came to see what people had to say. After the first 5 posts it was obvious that the thread would go nowhere. I'm confused why there are still people posting serious opinions.
I dropped this show and picked up Non Non Biyori.
I made the right choice. Why aren't you?
See you when the second season comes out.
>NNB will never be forgotten.
NNB hasn't even got an ounce of the attention or praise SnK has gotten. Hell, there was about 15 other more important anime that came out last year that fans and the industry will remember over it.
Don't worry man, I'll be here for SnK's 2nd and 3rd seasons. It's Movies(both animated and live action). And it's many spin off animated projects.
Probably not, you more than likely like most normalfags going through an anime phase will grow up out of it and not even care by then. You'll get a job, a 3dpd and a family and wont even care.
So who's worse,
David S. Goyer or Mari Okada?
>Turned Superman into a murderer
>Made Blade Trinity
>Hired an aneroxic Jew to play Wonder Woman
>Turned Fujiko Mine into a mindbroken whore
>Made Black Rock Shooter
>Adds bullshit drama into everything.
Whose the worse of them all?
