Now that all the new shows have premièred and none of them have toppled it. is it safe to assume this show is AOTY?

As far as manga adaptions?

Maybe, yeah. I'm holding out for Parasyte though.

Mushishi is much better.
>>
>>115322711
I didn't like it.
I count at least 4 anime this season that will be better.

I even liked Jojo more.

Mushishi and Space Dandy were both better.

>>115322711

Bahamut is the new GOAT.

>>115322711
I would say so.

>>115323305
The characters haven't even developed yet.

>>115322711
I'm enjoying this season a lot, but yaeh ping pong can't really be beat

>>115323338
Oh? Should they have in just 2 episodes? Is anything supposed to top Ping Pong in just 1 or 2 episodes? This thread is so shit.
>>
>>115322711
man what a shitty artstyle its like one of those dada art
>>
>>115323376
No, you should wait before you claim other things this season are better than Ping Pong.
>>
Anyone who doesn't like PP has objectively shit taste but will never mention a show that aired this year which they liked out of fear of being exposed as a shit eating retard.

Prove me wrong'
>>
>>115323449
I never made such claim. Meanwhile OP said:

>Now that all the new shows have premièred and none of them have toppled it.

Well, no shit. What a retarded statement.

>is it safe to assume this show is AOTY?

Not until the year is over.
>>
>>115323456
What if I liked Ping Pong, but I liked other shows more?
>>
>>115323376
But Bahamut has surpassed it in two episodes.
>>
That is AOTY, but this season is SOTY
>>
>>115323576
Dropped Bahamaut in half episode

>>115322711
Yes it's safe.

3 episode rule bare minimum, trying to call what's going to be good at this point in the season flags you for the pleb that you are.

Give every show an equally fair chance, but spare no mercy after that.

Sadly this season proved to be absolute shit. Nothing can beat Ping Pong this year, that's for sure.

Hipster show of the year, sure.

I'm been on /a/ long enough to know that the obscurity of the series plays a large factor in whether or not it receives mass support from the board. Put simply, had this show been popular outside of /a/ then non of you would be praising it this hard.
>>
>>115328662
But it was popular outside of /a/, very popular actually. It's not even remotely 'underground'.

The source material is a very popular manga, it was adapted by a very popular director, it had already been adapted to a very popular movie. If you think this is some hipster title only /a/ likes for the sake of being elite you're very mistaken.

Unless the second half of Mushishi pulls a miracle out of its ass, yes.

>>115329010
Is it worth watching just for Aya Hirano? I don't give a fuck if she's voicing that hand deformity.

I've heard the first episode felt pretty average.
>>
There's still some stuff yet to watch, but undoubtedly its at the top 3 of the year, in fact probably the AOTY.

Still, surprises might happen.
>>
>>115329093
It doesn't follow the manga. Instead it's some pretty mediocre attempt at modernizing the original. Prepare for your typical edgemaster teenager drama, full of darkness and dubstep. Yes, Badhouse decided that dubstep would the the most appropriate choice for the OST.
>>
>>115329197
>dubstep

Oh man, I think that's probably the least fitting genre of music you can choose for an anime ever.
>>
Ping Pong was poor. Mushishi AOTY.
>>
>>115328811
>popular outside of /a/, very popular actually
#1039 by popularity on MAL
Compared to #62 NGNL which aired the same season.
There's also 15 other shows that had more watches that season than Ping Pong.
It's not very popular outside of /a/, just very well liked by the few people that watched it.

Once it finished airing I think it was safe to say this is AOTY. It's pretty much perfection in one show.

I doubt 2015 will even produce anything better than Ping Pong.

at last is better than kpop

>>115329649
wow wanted to give this show a shot but since lelouch likes it i immediately dropped this shit

The story was good but it would have been better if they drew the characters and designs better
>>
>>115329763
By "better" you mean "like everything else made to be easily consumed" neh? Because it was great to look at.
>>
>>115329763
The character designs were fine but I did notice many bits of QUALITY during the show. The BD release should fix it up a bit.

Also, art direction /=/ animation quality

>>115329448
On MAL about 10% of the number of people who watched NGNL is the number of people who watched Ping Pong. I think the same is about true for /a/. It's popularity is about the same everywhere. It's as highly regarded as it is everywhere, not just /a/.
>>
>>115329763
But the art is what added to the brilliance of Ping Pong.

I take it back.

Also Space Dandy turned out to be pretty good. Ping Pong was still a very good show though, so I wouldn't hold it against you for making it your AOTY.

I mean to say that Ping Pong is the only good anime this year but that also means it's the best, obviously
>>
Mushishi is pretty to look at but otherwise there's nothing great about it. It has sort of an interesting concept, but all of the stories are dull, and pretend to be deeper than they really are. All it does is make you want to fall asleep.
>>
There are only ever like 3 or 4 good anime a year

That's what I mean, of course. It's very pretty. When I first watched it back in 2006, I thought it was the most amazing thing ever, but I tried rewatching a few months ago in anticipation of the new season, and it didn't do anything for me. There are some neat ideas here and there, but the characters are flat, and the writing is nothing special

Nothing getting to Ping Pong level, but this season is better than I expected, a lot of nice surprises with Bahamut and other better than average shows.

Space Dandy and Mushishi getting a honorable mention, maybe Bahamut... but I don't expect the story to get better.

Looks like absolute dog shit
I don't give a fuck about "muh style", it's lazy and looks like a kindergartener drew a lot of the key frames
