You better listen to Kamina!
I don't buy any anime, so I think I should be ok
What is a KYOANI
You mean Bandai, the same company that licensed GL in the States?
KyoAni, instead of trying to create a shitty script, like certain other companies(i.e. LOL GAINAX or LOL GONZO), focuses on the quality of what they do. FMP, the Key series, Haruhi, and even Lucky Star, all were made larger than life in ways other companies couldn't dream of by KyoAni, because they allowed for the inspirational interpretation to flow. The reason they made it big? Because they brought the characters to life. Some people can't understand this, being total faggots. For example, NGE? It was just the story of some timid faggot going through an early mid-life crises with a few biblical references added in. Emo and Christianity: no wonder you kids loved it so much. He admitted it himself, don't try to deny it. GL? Hey, the last faggot anime we made was about Christianity, so lets make this one about evolution! How does that work? Well, any fifth grade student knows that evolution works in corruption of DNA, which is a...GASP... DOUBLE HELIX! Maybe we should make a stereotypical shounen story with a bit of this theme and turn things around with our bad end and then it will be ORIGINAL CONTENT. Genius!
BUY GURREN LAGANN DVDS.
It's one of the best anime series I've ever watched. It's also pretty original.
The voice acting is superb. The character designs are inspired. The parodies are great. The food talk is exciting. There are no qualms about insanely high moe counts. The melodrama and tension level is set as high as it can possibly go most of the time. The story is pretty epic. The characters prone to theatrics.
Konata is one of the few main characters that is actually cooler and more interesting than anyone in her supporting cast. And most of the supporting cast seems to be more than just usual stock characters. Characters like Miyuki and Tsukasa are almost as complex and full of contradiction as Kontata. This is hard to do. Most slice of life anime or anime is general never have a lead character this complex or layered. . . not to mention the supporting cast. I also like how some things are revealed both subtly and unabashedly. The animators and voice actors have a knack for subtlety and the opposite. There are scenes where feelings and thoughts are expressed without being said. And there are well done scenes of grandiose scale where the heroes and the villains face off in hammy, uber-emotional, and heated dialogues or monologues that are extremely satisfying to watch. This show is EPIC!
The first season is soooooo goooood you can overlook the flaws it does have. 10/10 easilly.
When I heard of the second season, I jumped for joy.
KyoAni makes no good anime
Yeah, I guess that'd be okay.
but it's true...
it's less entertaining pasta if it's true
But... but... I like KyoAni and Gainax.
not this again, it's all just a matter of taste ffs, get over it /a/
kyoani and gainax are both fucking great at what they do.
this is why i love /a/
Sure feels 2007 in here.
GAINAX is not in for the money guys, they make 1000000000 remakes of EVA because people love it.
I watched ONE ep of Gurren Fagann (after the armtwisting of the GLfags in /a/), and my assumptions were proved right. It has THE ugliest character designs, with a cast of screaming troglodytes, and the plot is so sub-Beyblade, it'd insult the intelligence if a lobotomised zombie amoeba with Alzheimer's. No, Gurren Fagann is worse than all the pics I'd seen & the faggotry I'd experienced on /a/ Heroic Age is SUPERIOR, and there's nothing any GLfag can say or do to make me think otherwise. And the GLfags are just that. Faggots.
Gurren Lagann is a pinnacle of anime. One of the greatest of our decade.
Watch it, you newbies. Watch it.
1 remake = 1000000000 remakes?
Gurren Lagann is a pinnacle of shounen. One of the greatest of our decade.
Watch it, you newbies. Watch it.
who made the movie i liked the movie
Personally, I'd rather not waste good downloading & watching time with the monstrosity that is Gurren Fagann. Not unless it was redone, directed by Toshimasa Suzuki, with character designs by Hisashi Hirai, written by Tow Ubukata, and mecha designs by Ken Otsuka & Naohiro Washio. Oh, but it's already been done. It's called Heroic Age. I'll watch that instead, along with Code Geass R2.
>>Emo and Christianity: no wonder you kids loved it so much
So is this /a/'s Marvel VS DC?
YOU! The guy who faps to Heroic Age!
How's it going?
ONLY SHIT ANIME COMPANIES MAKE ANIME FOR MONEY GUYS WE SHOULD ALL RAGE ABOUT IT BECAUSE WE ARE (NOT) PAYING TO WATCH THIS NEW MATERIAL
FUCKIN GREEDY GAINAX WHORES
>oh shit rly?!?
DON'T BUY HARUHI DVDS
For some reason I suddenly feel like buying Haruhi DVDs...
"LUCKY STAR SEASON TWOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"
"Oniichan are you OK?"
Anonymous trying to enforce a hivemind is a bigger enemy.
Buy from KyoAni, don't buy from KyoAni. It doesn't matter as long as you don't trash /a/ with your shit.
Pretty much, if it weren't for the fact that there are still a few other significant players besides Gainax and KyoAni.
Don't DC and Marvel pretty much have the American comic book market locked up (not counting imports)?
Sounds like Viral marketing - reversed psychology style to me.
Fuck you, I'll buy them if I want to. Fuck, I'll go and buy them right now.
I lol'd heartily. Thanks.
Yeah it's just DC, Marvel and everyone else.
So Haruhi is a terrorist now?
Comic Books are niche, Marvel and DC just have iconic franchises to take care of. There are more independent and smaller comic companies, it's just that not as many people read them.
How much do Haruhi DVDs cost?
>How much do Haruhi DVDs cost?
How much would you pay?
Well, she does hate us because of our freedom.
shit sux, newfag
HAY GUYZ, I LIKE GONZO WHERE DO I FIT IN???
Go read Spawn or something
C- at best
I imagine that if I were to go back and watch haruhi in chronological order, I would become an hero due to how pointless the entire show is. /a/ is full of faggots that troll every show they notice is popular or butthurt faggots that fall for the trolls.
Now in comparison of TTGL and moe show X, I would say TTTGL comes out on top. WHY? because GL is pretty much the pinnacle of shonen hot blood gar shows, that is what it is meant to be.
Is lucky star or haruhi the pinnacle of slice of slice? No, it's not even close. Some of the best slice of life and romantic comedy shows were are and may always be things like minami ke azumanga daioh love hina etc. Lucky star doesn't bring anything new to the table or do anything special. TTGL may not bring anything new but at least it pushes the bounds of previously set GAR limits to their maximum .
but f/a/ggots around here are too busy circlejerking eachother to their favorite fag show to actually watch some good animu: Baccano, Nodame Cantabile, Ergo Proxy, Honey and Clover.
Also, "BUY HARUHI DVDs" is a fucking stupid meme. Nobody buys anime, so shut the fuck up and GB2/gaia/
HURR DURR I LIEK ANIME kill yourself
>slice of slice
Also, no GL isn't the "pinnacle" of the super robot genre.
>Is lucky star or haruhi the pinnacle of slice of slice? No, it's not even close.
Haruhi never tried to be slice of "slice"
>I imagine that if I were to go back and watch haruhi in chronological order
Why would you watch it in any other order than Airing order?
>>best slice of life
>>minami ke azumanga daioh love hina
Jesus, you really are a retard.
Okay, wasn't really the exact same thing I was talking about but whatever. I don't classify TTGL as "lol mecha" that would be like throwing it in the same category as gundam seed and G gundam, which it is nothing like. It pretty much falls into the category of "LOL GAR" shows like GGG or Harlock or Gunbuster
"why would you want to read chronicles of narnia in chronological order" HMMMMMMMMMMM
Haruhi is going to sell your soul to the devil!
I know because a friend of mine works on kyoani and he told me that.
BE CAREFUL GUISE!
Your fix is shitty, only retards would cry during Air.
Even more than Kanon this shit was a shallow and pandering bullshit.
>>best slice of life and romantic comedy shows
>>romantic comedy shows
Slice of life =/= romantic comedy, they aren't the same genre at all.
Also you really are a moron if you think Love Hina was better than Haruhi.
Only faggots hate moe and only homophobes hate GAR.
Why can't you enjoy girls being cute AND men being manly?
yes, actually it is. Sorry to hurt your butt newfag
Because this is /a/ and people don't mean what they say.
Fucking retarded. 90% of manga are better than the anime, faggot.
Because I want my boys being cute and women being manly.
I see, you don't know shit about anime genres.
Have a nice day.
You're also a faggot.
Using "newfag" lol.
First I don't think Love Hina is old enough to be considered a classic, reserve that for something like Urusei Yatsura.
Then Love Hina was mediocre at best, the humor was shitty and the romance was very annoying.
Yes Haruhi was better, that's not a huge feat or anything though.
oh and I'm sure in your world Haruhi is the most amazing romantic comedy ever?
Because characters who rely on moe or GAR are usually just a pathetic fanservice attempts to hide horrible writing. It would be nice if it was an added bonus to an already good character, but that's usually not the case.
Who the fucks saying Haruhi's a romantic comedy?
>but f/a/ggots around here are too busy circlejerking eachother to their favorite fag show to actually watch some good animu: Baccano, Nodame Cantabile, Ergo Proxy, Honey and Clover.
I'm pretty sure everyone around here already watched these.
Fail animu elitist is fail.
lol how do I missed context ¯\(º_o)/¯
oh dear lord
you'd be surprised
let's see, a show that completely builds up to a climax of the 2 main characters finally kissing. Good haruhi, you're looking pretty romantic comedy there
Now you're getting paranoid.
Your butt, I can taste the hurt
and since /a/ only talks about shitty shows.......
I BOUGHT THE HARUHI DVDS
I PLAN ON BUYING THE SUB-ONLY GURREN LAGAAN DVDS
I ENJOY BOTH SERIES
GET OVER YOURSELVES, FAGS
You're probably the faggot who made that list so let me give you an advice.
When you make a LOL ELITISM list you should at least put 2-3 shows that aired more than 2 years ago, at the very least you won't sound too much like a newfag that way.
Also you should put some actual REALLY GOOD anime in that list, especially if you want to pass for an elitist, Ergo Proxy is mediocre and Baccano, while good, isn't a masterpiece.
We talk about CURRENTLY AIRING shows.
If you want to talk about something else kindly get yourself a signature and go to some anime forum talk about how Evangelion changed your life for the #1236 time.
>>We talk about CURRENTLY AIRING shows.
Just because that's going to be the most popular doesn't make it the rule.
Well, good friar, why don't you enlighten me
>while good, isn't a masterpiece.
perhaps the same could be said of all anime. in b4 someone says GL is a timeless masterpiece.
What "build up"? Bullshit. I can remember two pointlessly small scenes where any sort of interest was exhibited (both solely in the anime, by the way), not to mention chronological order screws any sort of logical characterization buildup anyways. The kiss follows with a reset, too, but that's besides the point.
GL is a timeless masterpiece.
It's not a rule but don't keep crying because /a/ don't talk about your favorite old anime because this board IS fast and like talking about what's new.
Either get over it or go somewhere else.
Anonymous, failing at critical thinking since ever
4chan, the only place this imaginary Gainax vs KyoAni wars happens.
Not even 2ch thinks this way, and mind you this place is filled with faggotry and anime elitism. It's much worse than /a/.
When are going to get over this bullshit?
