I don't understand /a/...
You troll people who talk about trying to get into anime by tricking them into watching stupid shit or trolling them mercilessly.
You don't have a sticky that explains to people who have never watched anime before good shows/movies/books to start with.
Do you just not want other people to start watching anime? Is it your super secret club or something?
We don't exist to carter to you self entitled little shits.
If you want to talk anime with /a/ git gud
Thing is with 4chan boards, the more users there are the worse the boards are, so naturally there has to be some sort of population control here.
If people are going to come here they should at least know shit about anime (is that too much to ask?).
Why would we want people who don't know anything about anime to be posting here?
But how are people supposed to know anything about anime if they don't have some guidance? That's my point. You give no starting point and mock people who randomly choose a starting point and end up choosing something popular. You're board is the less helpful /mu/.
I'm saving their lives.
I am a roundworm living in >>101975137's body.
I am sorry >>101975137 sad opened this worthless THREAD.
>>101975137 is a born loser, but he has a big appetite, seldom wash his hands, always be filthy. That made >>1's body our paradise.
Thanks to >>101975137, I have grown up to 2.2 meters long.
But one day, >>101975137 had bad diarrhea because he was teased on IRC.
>>101975137 washed away my little brother Kenta from his bowels. Poor Kenta! He was only eight centimeters long then.
Normally >>101975137 has enough nourishment to feed me and all my brothers and sisters.
I don't want to see my little sister Haruna lament the loss of other family member.
Ladies and gentlemen, >>101975137 is a good-for-nothing fellow, indeed, but please be kind to him.
There is no need for a sticky because anime is simple to get into.
It doesn't require any technical knowledge to look up and watch anime.
Cooking is harder to get experience with than anime watching and /ck/ lacks a sticky.
However this does not mean one should come here without experience watching anime, it is implied that you should be familiar with anime before posting
Google you absolutetly pathetic and retarded piece of shit.
We're trying to help the world by making sure nobody falls into this hellish trap anymore. You should be thankful.
See, /a/ is the oldest board on 4chan and because of that it contains serious elitism.
How to be /a/:
☑ Hating english dubs
☑ Watching subs
☑ Watching HorribleSubs
☑ Watching raws
☑ Hating Commie
☑ Hating Crunchyroll
☑ Hating streams
☑ Hating common shows (TTGL, Eva, Cowboy Bebop etc.)
☑ Hating meta threads
☑ Hating One Piece
☑ Hating Naruto
☑ Hating Bleach
☑ Hating VLC
☑ Hating /v/
☑ Hating /co/
☑ Hating /pol/
☑ Hating /sp/
☑ Hating Future Diary
☑ Using MPEG
☑ Using excessive amounts of encoding jargon with MPEG
☑ Torrenting anime
☑ Watching moe
☑ Thinking Demonbane is the most powerful anime character ever
☑ Suggesting Boku No Pico to anyone who asks for rec's
☑ Spoiling the latest episodes of a show that's currently airing
☑ Blaming the IRC for every shitpost
☑ Hating anime
I'm sure googling anime will be of great help in search for a good anime to get me into the format.
By going somewhere else or googling "anime recommendations"?
I'm one of those that is against the idea of not having a sticky, but if I were to put one, it wouldn't have a list of anime, or a link to recommendations, or anything like that. It would be an extensive guide on how to use google so people can learn to figure things by themselves.
>☑ Thinking Demonbane is the most powerful anime character ever
The others are debatable but EGD IS the most powerful character ever
Deal with it nerd.
>☑ Using MPEG
does anyone do this?
Because it discourages lurking. Lurk for a month or two and you'll figure everything out yourself without needing to have it fed to you.
Not that that matters, anyway, Lurking died a long time ago because of people like you.
This isn't anime or manga, by the way, it's a shitty meta thread. Retards like you are turned away when nobody gives you what you want so you break the rules regardless. That's the kind of person that nobody wants here.
that's actually...surprisingly accurate
though I can't personally vouch for:
-watching raws (WHO ARE YOU IMPRESSING)
-watching moe (half.this.board.cant.properly.define.moe.)
We're here for anime discussion, not anime recommendation. There's a thousand forums out there that cater to your fetish, why don't you ask them instead?
If they truly need guidance from us then they are obviously unable to help themselves and are not wanted here just for that reason.
Go and search /a/ anime recommendations on google and you will find plenty of resources and guides already made for this purpose.
It is simple to get a starting point yourself.
It's also backwards to think that one should get into anime by coming to /a/ when it is the reverse.
One should get into anime and then come to /a/
The same logic applies to all other boards
I can think of stronger characters. For example I conceptualized a being that lives between the walls of dimensions. He'd be what I'd call a true singular being because there are no alternate dimensional forms of him. There would be no demon bane made out of him. There would be no demon bane driven by him. He couldn't be affected by anything dimensional(meaning anything that exists within dimensions) and thus demon bane wouldn't be able to touch him.
Search anime recommendations, there's even recomendations on the /a/ wiki you retard
I fail to see how recommendations about anime is not discussing anime.
>implying you've been on 4chan longer than I have.
We had a sticky before but people still made recommendation threads because they were to lazy to read it.
Lurking is the most boring thing in the universe. I doubt anyone is going to have the patience to do it for an entire month.
>You troll people by trolling them.
Please tell me I didn't just read that.
Please tell me you didn't just write that.
>I don't understand
You'll understand eventually. In the meantime, lurk more, and never ask anything again because it's just bad manners and ruins the dynamic.
I did it for about a month before I started posting.
Eh i did it ofr a year
I did for 3 years and still have not made a single thread.
>on the /a/ wiki
Good lord, you could have just said. We have a wiki, look at it.
When I first started browsing 4chan I lurked /b/ for about a year because I was too afraid too post for fear that everyone would attack me and get my IP.
I was sad and underage I know.
You have no idea what EGD is, do you? I mean it's cool if you don't I am more than willing to hijack this thread and explain the Trinity and their nonexistence to you if you want me to.
I'll be nice and not give you a char.jpg
Who are you quoting?
>I fail to see how recommendations about anime is not discussing anime.
They're considered request threads, even by moderators.
This combined with a KlK image explains a whole lot.
But /mu/'s full of normalfags.
I hate that image, the thought of /a/ turning into that frightens me.
The same thing happened to me. ED assured me that the FBI would be at my doorstep as soon as I made a single post.
>Before you come tho this board you must watch and read all of Boku no Pico, it is a right of passage here and you will be looked upon with respect
This thread is literally full bait.
Want recommendations? Here are some easy steps:
1. Open your friendly google browser
2. Type "anime recommendations" or "anime recommendation websites"
3. watch your recommended anime
4. come to /a/ to DISCUSS that said anime, instead of asking to watch more
Anyone that does not understand these 4 simple steps is literally braindead, or straight up trolling. Anyone answering these retards are also retarded themselves. Please educate yourselves.
It's not trolling if you act retarded.
/v/ is a better board in so many aspects.
>you can have a wider taste in video games than you can with anime
>much more lenient
>discussions don't have to be necessarily about video games provided it starts as one
>funny board wars between /a/, /pol/ and /co/
Do you know what's worse? People that reply to these threads, think are cancer, say so, and don't. Fucking. Sage.
Why in the hell would someone not sage in these? Do you want this thread to live forever or something? For fuck's sake
If you want to be spoonfed, just join a forum or something where if you don't behave like a goody good 24/7 you can be banned
Anon is honest maybe a bit too much, but still he stays true to himself if he finds a show being shit or saving anime.
>thinking sage actually stops anything in a thread full of trolling and shit-flinging
You're stupid as fuck.
Fixed for /a/
>70% of threads are bait threads
>20% are shitposting threads
>5% are recommendation threads
>5% are actual video game threads
Are you fucking kidding me? /v/ is the second most cancerous board here and you can't discuss ANYTHING withot someone derailing the thread
>second most cancerous
What's the first, then?
Why the hell would you even ask, /b/.
Trust me dude, I spent last 5 days playing video games, instead of just being on /v/, and my life suddenly got 100 times better.
Whoops forgot to mark out the mobile site line
/b/ in terms of quantity of cancer
/s4s/ in terms of cancer per thread
Here is where we tell you to fuck off and never come back.
Fuck off faggot.
Beautiful. Brings a tear to my eye.
/s4s/ is completely ironic though.
How did such a retarded thread get so big? Stop replying and go watch some anime faggots.
"ironic shitposting" is still shitposting.
It's the same level as people pretending to be retarded
