>been above average since TTGL
If we assume that there are bellow average anime that have been released since TTGL, then we have to conclude that there have been at least a few above average ones.
I may not know their names, but I can mathematically assure you they exist.

Unless your taking an average over, say, the history of anime, and are claiming that the pre-TTGL anime are so superior that they are, to this day, able to skew the average.
Which would be unlikely, since the sheer volume of shit that's been released post-TTGL could easily outweigh the hand full of masterpieces that came before.

KLK threads are terrible whenever they're not just pixiv art dumps. I really like the show but it attracts some pretty heinous shitposters. The only threads that get by unscathed are the ones that have no real attempt at conversation and just focus on art.

Also OP, if you think anime is shit now then just find a different hobby. Nobody is stopping you from doing something else, and nobody is obligated to defend the medium to you and your nostalgia goggles.

Current anime discussion is 90% of /a/'s traffic, if anything it's the nostalgiafags who'd get their own containment board. Except that's a stupid idea because it would b dead as fuck and filled with nothing but circlejerking.

>>
>>101839010
When it becomes mandatory for a show to have a thread on front page around the close, it's essentially a general thread. In that regard, KLK has at least three generals. So yes, I would advocate dedicated generals instead of having 8 to 15 threads in the catalog at any given time for ONE series.

OP, I suggest you try expanding your horizons. Have you actually watched any so-called "moeshit"? Just because something doesn't have flashy fight scenes doesn't mean it's not enjoyable. Several years ago I was like that too, but just give it a try. You might find a couple series you enjoy.

You must be completely retarded and narrow-minded to think that.

Yes, it is. Back to my point on KLK having 10 threads at one time, 8 of them being completely pointless and serve as nothing but a mindless, repeating circlejerk.

>Currently shows and manga are what keep this board healthy.

No, OC keeps the board healthy. Current shows give a small amount of OC, but give much more repeating blandness in the shortterm, AKA while they're currently airing. Again, see KLK for an example of this.

Lucky Star was the balancing force at the time and there was endless shitflinging between the two sides. Moebros have always been here and always have had a large influence with Haruhiism in 2006 being 4chan-wide famous, and then Lucky Star, then K-on and then Watamote etc. if you seriously think /a/ then was of purely "epic manime" aka edgy 11th grader composition, you just weren't fucking here, plain and simple.

I hate this circlejerk of constantly shitting on TTGL and it's fanbase. I hate reverse trolls like OP trying to make the TTGL fanbase look even worse than it already does. Because of this trend you can't even mention that you liked the show without legions of anti-fans telling you that X show was better. The stock answer to "I think TTGL is a good show" is typically a comparison to another show (which the poster may have never even watched) rather than an actual argument.
Whether or not OP is actually a TTGL fan, he's shitting up the board with his shit thread.

This is exactly what I hate - it's impossible to say that you like certain shows without people jumping down your throat and making unfounded claims about how long you've been watching anime. I know that's impossible to change, of course, but shitposters like OP are the ones who make it impossible to say what you think about TTGL without people trying to force you to conform to /a/'s opinion of the show.

The only people who truly belong on /v/ are those with a PC and at least 2 consoles in my opinion.
Saging now anyway.

>>101840965
They shitpost the most and suck the most corporate cock.
For example nintendo and PC fans will generally leave each other alone, but not sony ponies. They will shitpost in any thread that isn't playstation.
Also they
>Sony demands people pay 5$ a month to play online
>"Sony has to make money somehow"
>Sony charges 5 times the price for storage
>"They can do what they want, it's their console"
>Sony makes dude bro shooters that only COD kids like
>"But they are so good because sony made them, I love killzone!"
There are a few nintendo and PC fans that are that bad but it is very, very rare on 4chan compared to how bad the sony fanbase on /v/ is.
>>
>>101841009
Homestuck has proven to be worse. At least bronies will talk about MLP. Homestuck fans will make a general thread and talk about off topic shit and autism themselves all over the board.

It would definitely make /v/ a better place. Too bad there would be no way for moot to actually make sure only these posters could post. Maybe if you had to sign in with a combination of different game accounts but we all know that wouldn't work.

Well that's the obvious answer, but I suppose we're talking about 2nd place here. On that, it's difficult to rank a console fanbase (a pretty vague concept really when there is so much multi-platform) versus fanbases for different media. So that unnamed equine show's fanbase is the worst of all animation fanbases that's for certain. They probably are the worst overall too, but there are other really bad things out there, like Justin Bieber or Twilight, that we normally don't even take into this equation.

Now on the question of moefag vs anti-moefag, I'd go with moefags because they're not the ones who hate an element/focus just for existing. Moefags can like good shonen shows, they just have to be good. After all anime is very much defined by a lot of what are shonens and it's almost impossible to avoid exposure to them when first getting into it as a kid/teen. Shonenfags are the other hand often just hate all moe shows period, and don't like the good ones either and don't give them a chance. Or at least that's my impression.

The difference is quantity. In anime there will be dozens of anime a year and you will have many different fanbases. On a board where there is only 3 groups as much as a 3rd of them or more could be horribly obnoxious fanboys of a specific thing.
>>
>>101841229
I have tried moe more than a dozen times and each time besides Air for some reason I just found them extremely boring. I don't care about cute girls doing cute things. Even the "Good" moe has no effect on me besides making me board. All of my friends are huge moefags though so I don't shit talk it.
>>
>>101838346

Yeah the TTGL fanbase, which is full of normalfags is definitely more autistic than the people who ERP on 4chan while stuttering and posting their favorite moeblob, talking about how they would like to slurp each other's semen.

You say that, but the best gems are the ones you find without /a/ having told you to. Play the random show roulette a few times, look up works with Studios/Directors/Character Designers/VAs/Titles similar to shows you've liked in the past.

One day you'll be watching some OVA from the 90s you've never heard about, and you'll post a screenshot in an unrelated thread and say "It's kinda like this", and then two weeks later you'll see threads start popping up "HOLY SHIT /a/ THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER PUT IT IN THE REQUIRED WATCHING LIST". You can do it, anon. You can be the one who finds the gems.

I still don't get why TTGL is so damn overrated. Its characters are pretty uninteresting, clichéd and forced during the first season... the only decent one was Kamina, but, well. Second season, only Simon is somewhat likeable because they just started developing him. Story is just full of fanservice, irrelevant comical relief and pretentious "omg so epic" scenes that are, well... just that, scenes full of swag but nothing more. The lesson it is supposed to teach is even shitty for real life and only applies to anime (be reckless, stupid and try to get things done in a hot-blooded manner without thinking).
The ending is extremely exaggerated and clichéd, to the point that it could have passed as a joke, but it was an ending, so it just ruined the mood.
It's not a terrible series, it keeps you entertained, makes you laugh and all, but it's ok at best.

It's just the same as Naruto or Bleach, really simple with a bad story and lots of action, those kind of things are always popular.

But the west is not a meaningful market, almost nobody in the industry cares about the west. Dandy is a rather exceptional case and even then its profits will depend in japanese sales.
CB appealed to gun otaku, TTGL appealed to super robot otaku. And I think the fanservice elements are quite clear on both.

>>101842078
I haven't watched Naruto, but at least Bleach has some saving grace in its wide range of characters. Many of them are terrible, but many more are funny, different and interesting. At least, much more interesting than a full cast of hot-blooded, swaggy warriors (except Rossiu, I liked him the most).
