People complain about the fact that anime has been taken over by moe, and that there isn't enough serious violence, but when was the last time you saw a show that managed to be funny without resorting to stereotypes and references?
baccano, mofuckin isaac and miria
"No stereotypes is kind of impossible nowadays. Everything's been done to death.
I lol'd, but seriously can't someone name something?
this show's comedy is based entirely off of stereotype's
Even if there's moe in Potemayo I think you're right.
Very few Japanese comedy animu are actually funny. Cromartie is one of the few that makes me laugh (but it was made a few years before the moe boom).
hare nochi guu?
One Piece does that pretty well, and doesn't resort to stereotypes or references.
One Piece had some golden moments.
The Weapon-maniac woman on Drum Island was awesome.
sense = source
I always find One Piece as a good sense of humour, and, on occasion it can have some pretty cool action. The art style pretty much tells you not to take it seriously, or you're not going to like it.
Baccano's uses tons of stereotypes...
I meant anime, there are plenty of funny mangas out there.
And no, the OVA doesn't count - iirc, it aired back in the mid nineties.
I lol'd at the voice dial thing in this pic.
Except for Sanji, or when Luffy makes an impression of his mates, OP relies more on each character's traits for its humour, and manages to do it quite nicely.
Come to think of it, the manga finished eight years ago anyway.
Way to completely miss the point.
God dammit, even fucking macross is resorting to stereotypes for humour now.
