It's shit, very narrow, most of it is full of anime made in the past 5 years. And Code Geass is not an "epic", neither are many of the others on that list.

>>102131718
It'd make more sense if Bake was accidentally swapped for Katana.

I say "sense" on a relative scale, a lot of this stuff's either a poor choice or poorly categorised.

How hard is it to figure out your own shit to watch when you started out? Christ, old fags here'll complain (nostalgically) about going to stores and buying random bootlegs on the chance they might be good and passing around videos that are almost wiped clean from over play.

I don't think Tatami Galaxy had any pretensions it didn't meet in some way or form. You can argue on how well it executed its themes but I don't believe it over reached.

To term it a "thinker" is in and of itself more pretentious than the show.
>>
>>102131812
Which is actually really weird actually. If the creator of the list intends to create an entryway list why would he put psychological and subjectively pretentious shit like Lain and Paranoia agent and put it on a category of "Thinkers" when in reality it's either psychological or a mystery.

But man, just putting Epics will put people off. I don't even undetrstand why you'd place KissXsis, Oreimo in the same category as Welcome to the NHK and Genshiken. Even going as far as calling it Ice-Breaker

Stupid and tribalistic extension of people's base desire to feel secure and accepted within a group. ie their actions and existence becomes intrinsically validated, for some reason. An anon probably made that to play on such insecurities.

Screw all that, watch whatever you want, whenever you want. If you feel obligated to follow seasonal shows / certain "approved" anime so you can talk about such things in an approved way with others... maybe that's something to think a bit about.

Genshiken is something that should be watched when you're really familiar with lots of animu, otherwise most jokes will go right over your head. I don't get how it can be put into an "entry-lvl" list.

Also NGE should be removed because it's a huge waste of time and everyone who thinks otherwise is cancer.

Are you kidding me, a lot of people have problem following what happens in the first arc and are confused by the crab instantly. Bake is anything but good for beginners since pretty much everything in the show is based on japanese puns, rooted heavily in asian culture and references not to mention that shaft's autistic storytelling makes everything harder to follow than usual.

The most glaring issue with that list is the insistence that anime is some kind of hardcore hobby and if you can't spend 4+ hours watching Chinese cartoons then you're "casual" and shouldn't even bother.

Clearly you're not a real food-eater with your casual 3 meals a day; I eat up to 9 meals, and that's not even counting all of my snack-breaks! Clearly eating isn't for you and you should just give up.

I'll agree the plot, characters, pacing, etc is shit.
You know what?

The designs were kinda nice and it was pretty well animated in places. I guess? If I watched it again I'd probably like it a lot less than when I first saw it, but the first few eps are so boring I can't get through them for a rewatch.

It was good for its time?

When talking about my collective of friends I say it's because they are use to viewing media that spoon feeds them everything (Hollywood, tv, pop culture books), that way they don't have to waste time doing any thinking.

The style more than made it worthwhile, and it had a few understated subplots, which of course does not a plot make. Still, it was good fun and should be appreciated on its technical merits alone, not to mention the love and craftsmanship that went into it.

It certainly doesn't deserve to be dismissed out of hand

Of all the mech recommendations that's the one you call out? There are you bones mecha on there and TTGL isn't even close to being representative of the category. 00 is a much better standard mecha, more than Gunbuster too.

Having a send up of the genre as an entry level show is probably not a very well thought out decision.

Like most of the other choices on the list.

Gundam 00 is pretty good, except for the Islam MC. I would've liked it better if he was white.

Also compared to Seed it's pretty forgettable.

You guys always act like anime is sort of super complex thing to get into.
Just watch things that interest you is all. I mean isn't that how most of us got into anime? Not through some set guideline of how many of each genre you should get a dosage of, etc.
