Is there any way to tell if an anime will be popular with normalfags before it happens?

>Is there a way to tell if an anime will be unanimously hated by /a/utists because of its popularity?

>1. Marketing
That's it.
>>
>OP MCs
>side characters die all the time
>shipping potential
>decent animation

Oh Jesus, it looks like I did drop SnK because normalfags wouldn't shut up about it. That and it's horribly paced. Is it worth continuing after Trost?
>>
Has to be edgy.
>>
>>102213525
Read the manga.
>>
Was oreimo popular?
>>
anything with lots of action and some form of powerlevels (in SnK, becoming a titan)

so basically, the anime equivalent to a Hollywood blockbuster
>>
>>102213043
It's basically Evangelion with giants and a less asshole father
>>
>>102213569
Don't pretend the manga is any better.
>>
>>102213525
No, it just becomes a spiderweb of bullshit

>It's basically Evangelion

Where are the gay character and the tsundere bitch then?
>>
>>102213671
It is though.

The only thing the anime has going for it is the OST.
>>
>>102213043
Why? Would you then not watch it, because it could make you into a normalfag?
>>
>>102213671
This. The art is terrible
>>
>>102213813
I assume OP will then avoid mentioning that he watches it to his normalfag friends, lest they offend him with their pleb taste.
>>
>>102213043
If we knew that, we'd be employed in marketing.
>>
>>102213043
I remember /a/ being right about SnK SAO and watamote. After a while you know what normalfags are into. Best times where when faggots would come to /a/ and /a/ would spoil the shit out of it.
>>
>>102213813
He wants to make one.
>>
>>102213043
The manga is absolutely horrible. The anime is actually an improvement.
>>
>>102213525
Not particularly. iIf you're curious about where the plot is going read the manga.
>>
Has it become normal to like anime and manga? Are we no longer seen as freaks and weirdos?
>>
>>102213757
>tsundere
every asshole officer is a tsun

>gay
do you see the girl that travels with Eren and Mikasa?
>>
>>102214045
Still freaks and still weirdos. The only dif is that people are fucking hipsters and try to jump on any wagon that is popular. that includes snk
>>
>>102213525
You probably dropped it because the story and characters are complete garbage, not because of "pacing"
>>

no. this guy likes it and got laughed at

but he kinda deserved for watching Naruto
>>
>>102214045
It's always been that way with certain stuff. People watch KLK, SAO, SnK, but they won't touch anything else. It's just people liking a show that happens to be a cartoon that was made in Japan, not people actually liking anime.
>>
>>102213663
Something tells me you've only watched Rebuild
>>
>>102214197
The characters are what make SnK awesome
>>
It has to be good
It has to be marketed right
>>
>>102213671
The manga is worse you're an idiot.
