When does it end? Is nothing safe?

Is there one series that hasn't slowly degenerated and become intolerable to discuss because of normies?

but OP sao was already shit when it came out...

Considering SAO as good is just poor judgement

I never said it was good.

I just said it was ruined.

People can enjoy garbage things, but once casuals start praising them and elevating them it ruins discussion and the ability to discuss them.

Yes, SAO was never good, but at least I use to be able to just talk about it

The issue is that the fanbase prevents decent discussion.

>>letting a series' fanbase affect your enjoyment of it

I never let shitty fans ruin my enjoyment of a series, but it's plain moronic to think you could have a decent discussion about a series you enjoy when the fanbase turns into shit.

Unless you limited yourself to talking to just one fucking person, you'll have to deal with 'casual' fans in group discussion.
>>

>I never let shitty fans ruin my enjoyment of a series, but it's plain moronic to think you could have a decent discussion about a series you enjoy when the fanbase turns into shit.

This. You can still love your favorite series, but good luck talking about it in a group setting, if not on a board like /a/ once the shitfans join the discussion.

Hunter x Hunter, Jojo, SnK and soon Terra Formers and One Punch Man discussion will be shit, with anime-only faggots infesting the manga threads and whining about spoilers.
>>
>>101984486
>with anime-only faggots infesting the manga threads and whining about spoilers.

Yeah. Hajime no Ippo anime threads are always shit, but that's more to do with Rising being a shit adaptation. The only time we get discussion is when someone brings up the manga and those poor deluded folks who think the next adaptation (see, Post-War Arc) will somehow redeem the next season
>>
>>101984486
If terra formars does indeed get the casual infestation, the only way to deal with them is spoilers.
>>

>If terra formars does indeed get the casual infestation, the only way to deal with them is spoilers.

True. This somewhat deterred some of the shit threads when SnK was airing, but only made the manga threads worse once the season was over, but what ultimately killed SnK 'fanbase' was the retards who purposely tried to troll tumblr faggots, which only resulted in them infesting the threads.
>>
>>101984673
It will be an anime, people will think that people don't die, that cockroaches don't steal bodies, that they don't keep on evolving, that the first 2 missions failed, that Russia is best race and that China a shit.
>>
>>101984742

You know who else used this approach? Naruto fans with their whole tobi is obito bullshit.

Naruto is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive shipping faggotry and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.

However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable underageb& faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the jutsus, peculiar, colorful clothes, the whole ninja faggotry and everything about the Naruto world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall preachiness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average preteen and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes little kiddies and underageb& retards eat this shit right the fuck up.

Naruto is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Naruto threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.

I don't think it's that unusual. Have you never had something you liked ruined for you by a large group of people who suddenly start liking it?

Like it gets to the point where your brain starts associating that thing with the other idiots who like it, so you need to take some time off from it and whatever bad community you've been exposed to in order to be able to come back later and enjoy it again.

We acknowledge that most of that stuff was terrible in inception.

All you have to do is go to Crunchyroll's forums or something like that to see that pretty much any show you might like is "ruined" by casuals. That is to say, even if you don't see them these people still exist.

MGR fans not only as bad as those three, but they won't even stick to their own board.

So not only does OP use "casuals" like he's on his home board, he says it's possible to ironically enjoy shit, but only if nobody actually likes it.

Holy shit OP kill yourself.

No OP, nothing is safe. Not while you're on /a/.

This is how it always has been, everything that /a/ likes is eventually laballed casual or ruined by casual

In 2005 it was Fate
In 2006 it was Geass
In 2007 it was Gurren Lagann
In 2008 it was R2
In 2009 it was either Monogatari or K-on
In 2010 it was HOTD or PSG
In 2011 it was Madoka
In 2012 it was SAO
In 2013 it was SnK

It is the cycle of /a/. Everything gets popular and eventually we label everything as casual, entry level, ruined, etc after a set amount of time.Give it a few years, we will forget all about this and we will move on to how the new Yotsuba anime is being ruined by casuals and insert board name here

You know what all those anime have in common? all of them are entry level for anime, and no one of them have a serious or elaborate plot, that is the reason that /a/ hate them and love them in the same time, but mostly the will hate them because all of them have plots that have repeatedly exploited before in other animes.

Since when you can have a good discussion in /a/?, if you really want to have a discussion go to a forum, you use /a/ to talk random subjects about anime and shitpost in general.

I'm able to have pretty decent discussions about Precure.

I mean sure there's shitposting, but you aren't flooded with it like you are with more casual infested shows.

ahh thas just because of the "general thread" that are just circlejerking just like precure, idolmaster, Log Horizon (this shit even have fanfics), Megukas, Yurus, Monster girl, and the dead ones like r/a/dio

SAO was shitty but I enjoyed watching it.

I can't really explain it.

>>
>>101991106
Yeah.
It's actually not even the pacing, since it was basically a problem only in the anime.
The only real problem the manga has is the art, and the fact that it's monthly, so the wait between chapters seem longer.

In any case, caring about fanbases is pretty silly, especially on /a/.
You don't really have to interact with the worst kinds of people here, except for when a series is airing. Usually these people leave one or two days after the episode/chapter release, so discussion is still possible.
