Is there anything that automatically prejudices you against a show, to the extent that when you are planning what to watch that season you cross it off?

For me it's
>strong female protagonist

Pic related, no interest in shows like this.

>automatically crossing off 70% of shows in any given season

Sorry, misogyny isn't edgy; it's standard fare.
Please try again later.

>>102147250
if you are trolling, cool.
If you are serious, I'm genuinely interested in why you would cross something off for a reason like that.

>>102147250

lel, you must be a total faggot if even women threaten your masculinity.
>>
does anyone have the updated version of that thing with the guys yelling
>>
>>102147510
I don't hate women. I just have a harder time self-inserting in an action show where they are the protagonists.

>>102147524
See above. I don't have a cuckold fetish so it just doesn't do it for me.

Shitposting is against the rules you know.
>>
>>102147714
Why not? Anime is a medium with a lot of potential but it rarely lives up to the potential. I only watch shows that interest me in some way because it's just for fun.

I'm not going to sit through 20 shows a season that bore the shit out of me, or irritate me, just for the sake of keeping up.

how many threads are you making today IRC?
>>
If I don't like the character designs, then I don't like the show.

If I don't like the art style, then I don't like the show.

Somehow this was the most appropriate reply to this thread: >>102147361

So you're a pleb who hasn't seen the likes of GiTS, Seirei no moribito and Karsa no kyukai and countless other works? Get your pleb taste out of here.

>>102147250
posting in another epic bait thread XD

>>102147822
If you need to self-insert to enjoy something, which already is absolutely idiotic, then not being able to empathize and understand people who are different is pretty odd.

Especially considering a strong female lead is about as close to a fat fedora wearing neckbeard as a strong male lead, so it should be as easy to insert into either for you.
>>
>>102147822
Because self-inserting leads to things like this:
http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/Movies/01/11/avatar.movie.blues/

Self-insertion is a symptom of mental illness. Please refrain for the sake of your mental health.

I can self insert as Ryuuko just fine.

>If you need to self-insert to enjoy something, which already is absolutely idiotic, then not being able to empathize and understand people who are different is pretty odd.

That may be true for more complex, deep mediums like film or literature but again I just watch anime for something silly and fun. There are some exceptions to this rule but I've found that to generally be the case - anime isn't something I take very seriously. I'm sorry if that offends you.

>Especially considering a strong female lead is about as close to a fat fedora wearing neckbeard as a strong male lead, so it should be as easy to insert into either for you.
I always find it funny when people try to act superior on /a/ of all places. I could try and defend myself but really it is pointless on an anonymous image board - which is in some ways the beauty of this place.

>>102147934
Posting on 4chan regularly is probably a sign of mental illness but I'm still going to do it.

Also
>trusting psychiatrists ever

Really don't make that mistake, it can seriously fuck you up.
>>
Any high fantasy anime
>>
>>102148142
god damn son that's some heavy b8
>>
A good show is one that I cannot insert myself into. That means the story is so well-written and enthralling that I can't make it any better by putting myself into it.
>>
>>102148303

What about Berserk? That's pretty good.
>>
>>102148142
please go to a doctor dude.
you clearly have some form of mental illness
>>
>>102148949
>he isn't a beta cuckold who enjoys jerking it to cartoon figures!
>he must have a mental illness!

Just step back and look at what you are saying. That being said, yes maybe I do have one I think many of us probably do. I can work and socialize though so I see no reason to get put on drugs by some quack psychiatrist.
>>
>>102149057
Please get help man. Seriously I know 4chan is full of "lololol an hero" idiots but you need to see a doctor. I am really concerned for you and I barely fucking know you
>>
>>102149251
I appreciate that man, but as I said as long as I can life a functioning life I see no reason to get all doped up.

Now, let's try to steer this thread back on topic. Do you have anything you avoid when looking at anime to watch?
>>
>>102148805
not really high fantasy, no magic
>>
>>102149450
Yeah I guess you are right, trying to think of another example and I can't.
>>

100% this, especially recently.
>>
For me it's

Men are betas and the worst gender. No interest in shows like that.
>>
>>102150921
Fair enough, I can understand why you might feel that way.

Especially haremshit men are beta as fuck in that.
