GL isn't DEEP(Sorry, Cirno). Ghost in the Shell isn't DEEP(Sorry, Sitron AKA Oba-chan). Texholyze isn't DEEP. NO ANIME IS FUCKING DEEP.
Anyone that claim any anime to be DEEP need to kill themselves.
Nothing ever made by anyone is deep.
Not even 20th century boys?
I have never once recalled Cirno calling Gurren-Lagann "deep".
Well you know, /a/ is full of opinions
I like GL but I think that isn´t DEEP in anyways
ANIME IS ENTERTAINMENT, NOT DEEP
No. Complex/well thought out =!= deep
OP needs to kill himself for bringing this crap up again.
CIRNO NEVER CALLED GURREN-LAGANN DEEP.
Not even GhostNia did.
I lol'd at thumbnail fuck-up.
In the eyes of philosophy majors wasting their college educations, nothing is deep anymore unless it's written by someone with a PhD in philosophy (aka laugh riot, the real great philosophers had real jobs and did philosophy on the side).
Bartender would like to disagree with you OP.
Every anime is to a certain extent "deep". You have it all wrong, OP.
What's the matter? Too DEEP for you?
More like DEEP is only a good word to describe your asshole.
Not deep. It is my favourite anime, and I disagree.
elfen lied is deep though
DEEP = ONLY GOOD TO DESCRIBE HOLES
But isn't every anime deep until /a/ sees the ending? Then it's "oh god generic" "oh god overly done shitty" or "shitty" etc.
In that case though, Elfen Lied was sooooooooo deeep.
fuk yes dat is sum deep shit alrite
This animu is ankle DEEP in blood.
Evangelion wasn't deep until the ending. Then it was unbelievably DEEP.
WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE COMPLEXITY CAPTURED IN THIS SINGLE MOMENT
Mushishi is deep.
But that's the only one.
oh and Kino's Journey too
BUT THAT'S IT
IT IS NOT DEEP BECAUSE DEEP CANNOT BE USED TO DESCRIBE ANIME (OR ANY "ART" FOR THAT MATTER)
oh, and grin laggin too.
BUT SERIOUSLY THAT'S IT.
GitS is SMART though and asks questions of society which will become far more relevent in the future.
a show can be intelligent, it can be profound, it can be complex, it can be well written, it can be thought provoking, IT CAN NOT BE DEEP.
DEEP doesn't mean anything.
GL and GITS aren't shallow, though.
Name something that IS 'deep', philosophyfag.
Mushishi = Nature preaching
Kino no Tabi = Social relativism preaching
Gurren-Lagann = Social progress preaching
Every anime is shallow.
Its sole purpose is to entertain.
Not really. Think a little deeper.
You had me until this point.
DEEP only came about to counter GL because it was flawless(hate it or not, it was tastefully well done). Therefore classifying it together with LOLPOWERLEVELS type of shonen.
Power Rangers was DEEP
Requesting a standard definition of DEEP (besides assholes) to be posted every time a thread like this appears so WE FUCKING TALK ABOUT THE SAME THING
Who cares if something is deep? Depth has nothing to do with how enjoyable something is, nor anything else.
Nothing since Shakespeare has been flawless. You should know this.
>Not really. Think a little.
pretentious psuedo-intellectuals can't enjoy anything without depth
I have never used the word DEEP to describe anything but Evangelion.
Evangelion isn't anime, so it's okay. Evangelion is AN EXPERIENCE.
Why Eva is a experience instead of a Anime??
Because it's much much more than an anime. It's so complex, and it will make you think. If Evangelion were an anime, you'd lose half of what really makes it great.
The only anime.
It just is. It's a classic, nothing else is like it.
Don't forget, MTV also called Evangelion the greatest anime ever made, and who are they if not the people who define our generation?
Serial Experiments: Lain
Kino's Journey is pretentious pseudophilosophy.
And I watch GitS:SAC for some action plot, not DEEPness.
i'm disappointed, cirno. i didn't expect this from you.
you should know that only doraemon is DEEP.
Can someone post something, not necessarily anime, that is deep? I have no idea what the word means
The word doesn't mean a god damn thing. It is something invented to describe Evangelion and only Evangelion.
I also use it to mock animu that wasn't meant to be hard to follow or have hidden meanings, yet people insist on making it DEEP.
Like Desu Noto.
But what about all those implied references to the Messiah and shit, and how the Messiah died for our mother fucking sins, just like Light did?
HOW MUCH DEEPER CAN YOU GET.
You can't get any deeper than Deep Blue.
Now that's DEEP!
