why does /a/ hate this again other than the fact that spergs like it?
It's overated and only enjoyable for the music and art styles.
it was too simplistic in nature
I know some people will say "muh symbolism", even that was pretty obvious
It promotes smoking.
That's different though, something can be overrated and still good, just hyped up needlessly. I'm just wondering why people say "it's shit" other than opinion.
>and only enjoyable for the music and art styles.
The Pillows are great, didn't care much for the art though. I was more fond of the archaic story that kind of got lost in of itself.
I just care about you anon, you shouldn't smoke.
Get the fuck out, Kate.
I watched it years ago and I'm now reading the manga.
Why is the artstyle so 10/10? Goddamn.
Fair enough, and the whole pointing out the symbolism thing felt like a shitty cop-out for not just being a bit more creative
It's by no means bad and overall pretty enjoyable and I doubt anyone actually hates it. However if you watch it and expect it to be the best thing ever you're going to be disappointed.
Overated-ness is a legit reason for people to not like something. the other stuff is more opinions then anything.
>Overated-ness is a legit reason for people to not like something
What universe are you living in that /a/ hates FLCL?
People not shutting the fuck up about issue, so person ends up not liking issue despite not knowing much about it because person was just an annoying dipshit about it.
I know a bunch of dudes that are /a/nons that are disgusted by it. Then again assholes were watching Ghibli movies all while complaining about Ghibli movies.
Sure thing. I too hate the internet because people use it everyday.
Not to mention how there are assholes using it too. Fuck that.
I wouldn't call that legit reason but more a relateable one.
Some guys are not all of /a/.
Oh yeah and general annoyance of the show when it occasionally pops up but albeit I only browse /a/ for a bit in the morning for a while now so maybe I'm just getting the yuros.
Bad example you used, It's association with subject. It's like hating tumblr because SJW's and gays like it.
The problem is level of massiveness of each medium and their level of use. Internet can't really be compared to tumblr which really can't be compared to a single show. That said, I'd understand getting annoyed with discussion of a show because it brings about shitty people, but not so much a reason as to why the show is bad.
Oh well, the point has been made.
I never said show was bad, It was an answer to OP's question.
Disliking something because you dislike the people who like it is fucking stupid
It is stupid, but it is also common for people to do especially on /a/.
Doesn't make it excusable though. It' still a bad reason for not liking something.
/a/ only hates, it cannot love
75% of people who visit the board don't even post so I don't let autists or trolls ruin my enjoyment of things
Do we need another reason?
the manga was fucking terrible
what made it so bad? I'm curious
>spergs like it
>/a/ hates it
Something about this doesn't make sense.
people attack it BECAUSE a lot of /a/ likes it.
some people are just contrarian like that
Sperg is a /v/ word usually said by people who are called out for their off-topic nonsense.
might as well start talking about Spaghetti and rustled jimmies while you're at it.
>is a /v/ word
So, in other words, you have no idea what you're talking about?
Fuck off /v/ermin.
could be an /sp/ word
but why distinguish garbage?
It's short for Asperger's, it's no one's word.
Spaghetti out of the pocket, rustled jimmies, and other craaaazy memes are /v/ shit.
>why does /a/ hate this again
Stop with this shit you dumb retard.
I dislike tumblr because we have newfags coming in from there all the time, not for some vapid reason like "oh, some of the userbase are actively retarded!" So what? 4chan has the same problem. Just look at Gamergate and the "lol moot is a jew" tirade.
This isn't KLK.
And even that, some people liked it, even if it was shit overall.
>/a/ is one person
Not to mention you obviously haven't been on the board very long. Fuck off.
Also hating the fanbase is a stupid reason to hate the anime.
No best girl argument.
I really enjoyed it, it's a strange little beast and, like Wes Anderson movies, would suck if everything were presented in that style but it's all the more enjoyable for breaking from the norm while still incorporating elements of it.
Also, you have to watch it at least twice to really 'get' it.
I love it because of the music and the art style but it's overrated as fuck and people always act like there's something to "get" when it's just about growing up
Because it's just another one of those licenses the 2deep4ufags crowd will throw at you when you ask for a "good anime?". The show is so pretentious, mostly thanks to the fanbase, it's laughable.
That said, the art-style and animation is superb.
I get you guys, and I agree
I'm rewatching it for the first time in ten years, I'm on episode 3 and I still have no idea what the fuck I'm watching
There's really not that much discussion about it anymore
What are you talking about?
/a/ LOVE FLCL.
I guess I shouldn't generalize.
It's really just blatant symbolism about the process of coming of age for a young boy. Think of any growing-up story and you replace everything with implied themes, metaphors, and symbolic motifs.
fuck off governor scum
