Seeing normals gush over these kinda shows make me wonder how they'd act if they saw anime.

It's like when you hear some animated movie get highly praised because it did something outside the mold of kiddy family adventure flick. They'd probably shit their pants if you showed them Perfect Blue or something they'd never expect to see out of an animated movie

It was a shitty video that was posted here a while back that was talking about why anime isn't mainstream.

SnK being talked about around water coolers and Fate Zero being the japanese game of thrones came up several times. This guy thought that SnK was some sort of master piece that needed to be talked about everywhere.

Then he went on whining about characteristics of anime that were present since forever. It was basically a video version of one of THOSE threads that occasionally come up.

I don't like SNK either but that's irrelevant
What the hell is appealing of it?
I watched the first three episodes, it was fun, had action, tension and was actually about zombies.
Then suddenly it was bullshit drama at a camp and I didn't give a fuck and stopped immediately.

I don't even watch action series usually but it was the only good part of this tripe.

It's not done as badly as it is in SnK.

On a related note, aren't half the sex scenes in GoT just fanservice? Because the funny thing is that partly why western audiences loved SnK was because there was no fanservice.

It's that sentiment taken to the extreme. It's an outlet for people who collect guns to put them to their full use, constantly, against human targets. It also appeals to the idea of being a survivalist. Basically, it's a redneck fantasy.
>>
I used to like the walking dead but stopped watching it more or less halfway through season 3, or dunno what season it was, the prison one anyway. It really got so boring once you realized it was more or less the same shit in every single episode.

That's probably why Pacific Rim did so much better overseas than in the US.

Sometimes something really clicks with normalfag audience. Like how Doge is really popular with normalfags, the anime of SnK exploded with popularity among normalfags for some reason. I guess they think of it as the best show ever since Cowboy Bebop or something?

they don't even like lolis, and basically consider all imoutos, and petite grills, pedoshit.

It's one of the more respectable anime to show to people who wouldn't watch anime to begin with. It has action, no fanservice, "drama",no high school setting, names people can pronounce, and it doesn't last 200 episodes. Also has powerful female protag with Mikasa.

Hell, it's the first anime to appear on Netflix with only subs.

Because there's no such thing as "moderate" on the internet anymore. It's either one extreme or another now.

You either get full-blown autistic weeaboos like MAL or /r/anime proclaiming SnK as the next best thing from god himself, or extremely vocal neckbeard hipster elitists who shit all over it just to differentiate themselves from "the masses". There really isn't a place for people to say "I like SnK. It's a good show, but it has its flaws and isn't that revolutionary."

I have to agree with this, it's the same thing as people who say they "hate all western TV".
They don't hate western TV, they hate the idea of western TV.

Everything these days needs to be on one extreme or the other, you either watch anime AND ONLY ANIME, or you watch western shows AND ONLY WESTERN SHOWS, and people seem to think there's something impure if you happen to mix those two.

Doge is a tumblr meme I think. I doubt even /b/ could spawn something that bad.
SnK clicks with western audiences because:
It doesn't have any "childish" fanservice.
It's grimdark and "gritty", like a lot of shows that Americans love because they think that they're mature.
It's shonen, so teenagers love it. But it makes people think they're watching something mature because it has blood and violence, something that shocks people because it's a cartoon.
>>
>>101880742

What I want to know is how these "professional anime reviewers" get their jobs. You read articles on wikipedia or whatever about shows and there's these names thrown about of western folks from such and such magazine who watch and critique anime.

This comparison is not true for one reason: the dumbass writers at AoT have never realized that if you want people to care about a person dying, you need to establish their character. In this way, The Walking Dead is like Band of Brothers and AoT is like The Pacific.

They should make a hollywood SnK movie.

Eren can be played by Keanu Reeves.

I didn't say that you illiterate mongrel. I said that you lurking /v/ means that you will bring their shitposting here. If you visit a board enough and enjoy it they will influence your posting style. You pretty much just proved my point. You argue exactly like a typical stupid child from /v/.

Correlation does not equal causation, its just because they haven't been exposed to much anime.

This board is full of autistic faggots who feel superior just because they stick to watching one thing. Their pretense to being unique because of how many chinese cartoons they watch is all they think they have. The feel like they have to shit on anything that isn't marching in lockstep with their own personal norms. Its kinda like Nazi Germany only with lolicons instead of Aryans and cute girls doing cute things instead of the final solution.

We've done a pretty good job of not tolerating each other since forever and we're still doing okay.

So yeah, your description of /a/ still sounds pretty good.

Get out.

I'm tired of all the tolerance. What happened to the days of hating everyone? You used to have to earn respect and then watch it disappear when the thread dies.

All I see is someone whining about autistic faggots on /a/ and then whining about intolerance?

Do you really expect anyone to take something like that seriously?

Oh shit bro you're right that post cured me of autism and made me a kind respectable human being.

Thanks anon!

Pretty accurate since the walking dead also sucks.

Berserk is the Game of Thrones of anime. Attack on Titan is is more like the Walking Dead of anime, and that's not a compliment.
