I don't understand why so many people are obsessed over this anime.
It is generic beyond belief, with more asspulls than I've ever seen, and characters who are just extreme archetypes.
Please explain.

It's a standard shounen executed well.

marketing hype + shills + an alright show + a rather popular manga + ufotable + samurai (which always draws attention) + shonen + the regular new fans coming to anime every season now = guaranteed audience and guaranteed "best anime ever" by newer people
ufotable, like kyoani, plays it very safe

I haven't even watched it, but mainstream appeals largely seems to be because of Sakuga/Action and a couple of endearing characters (The boar head and the girl that carries a scroll in her mouth, specifically). In the more niche demographics, fujoshi definitely seem to have taken to it. Can't really speak for the average /a/non demographic but it doesn't seem to be that terribly popular here.

most anime onlys don't like Zenitsu because they don't know how amazing he becomes. They probably don't like most of the pillars either. Also THIS dude gets no attention, but he will once his face reveal happens then all the fujos are gonna act like they always liked him.
>>
>>193849931
It has great animation and the visual design and coloring is stellar. The voice acting is on point and there's a likable cast of characters, enough so that atleast one or two characters stick with people.
I'd say the plot and dialogue between characters aren't nearly as great as the technical department of this adaptation but it isn't outright bad enough to be panned by mainstream critics.
So there you go, an adaptation of a shonen manga that isn't awful, of course the audience that enjoy these kinds of works will latch themselves onto Kimetsu no Yaiba.

I could go on but at the end of the day it's shonen. Despite its flaws people just really like shonen. Most of the other popular anime recently like OPM or Mob have been this subversive take on the genre. Which I'm not saying is bad, but this just feels like an old fashioned 90s shonen.

Kimetsu no Yaiba, and Black Clover in different ways, owe their success to the distillation of the shounen formula. They're "post-Big Three" titles that were able to see things that made those series popular and in a sense, managed to capture and isolate the appeal.
In KnY's case, it's a rapid fire of the baby's first emotional backstory. Every character has some sad backstory we flash back to, even when it's completely inappropriate for the situation or drags out a plot. It's like a cheap Straw Hat backstory or the reveal of a tailed beast user's past. And people don't really question the logic or purpose behind each scene, they just get carried by the emotional inertia because they recognize what it's supposed to be.
Black Clover is the same thing but for big badass hero moments. Where KnY is lacking purpose, BC is lacking build-up.

But they sell because they've realized that most shounen readers don't think or care to think that much and are happy just getting their payoffs.
>>
>Good animation
>Flashy fights
>Likeable main cast
>Appealing character designs
It's popular because it's visually appealing, entertaining, and generally a feel-good anime that anyone can enjoy. Literally the same thing with OPM and the BNHA anime.
I agree it's really annoying that yet another generic action shounen with cookie-cutter characters is helmed as AOTY by tons of people when a handful of other shows with better writing, but what can you do about it. People are generally going to flock to things that are the most palatable to everyone.

I don't agree with any of these. Tanjiro feels generally forgettable as a shounen male MC (we've seen the same personality everywhere else--in Haikyuu, Yowamushi Pedal, Gash Bell...), villain is as generic as he comes (strong manipulative cold figure much like Ferid Bathory from Seraph of the End, oh wow), and the 1890s setting is very boring.

ufotable knows the story beats of what people loves most about shonen and then cranked it up to 11 with the animation and soundtrack.

>with more asspulls than I've ever seen
Should we admit that asspulls aren't a bad thing, or at least they are something inherent to fighting anime? I can't think of a single example, even from the ones that I like, that could be considered asspull free. The real saving grace of a fighting anime it's not not having asspulls, but the author being able to sell you the asspulls, either through logic, emotions, or a combination of the two. Also, when you hate something you tend to see more asspulls or dismiss their explanations, specially if those asspulls go against what you want to happen in the story. For example, a piece of information being introduced is treated like an asspull, despite the fact that not all the info has to be available to the characters from the beggining, just because said information changes the story's direction in a way that some people doesn't like.
>>
>>193865976
Anon, asspull is the word that some faggots her in /a/ will use when they have no real criticism to make towards an anime they hate. There's no use talking sense to the because they would just go 'hurr, durr, asspull!'

It becomes a lot better to be fair, the beginning is the worst part. It grows up and actually becomes enjoyable, I remember when it first came out in manga and I thought it was shit and needed to get axed. 70 chapters later I was surprised at how well it executed the shounen tropes. It's not the best manga ever made but it's worth a read when you have nothing to do.

If I wanted to see a very traditional by the numbers hero's journey I'd unironically just rewatch avatar the last airbender, since theres no yellowman in that

>Maybe they'll stop right before final battle with Muzan and turn that into another movie
no way, it's too long for a single movie

Not even shitposting, feel like it's really overrated. Animations look pretty good but fucking hell if the plot isn't the most boring shit ever.
>>
>>193866470
avatar is basically set in east asia tho retard
>>
>>193866613
Because it is. The animation is the only thing good.
>>
>>193850329
basically none of that is true. the show was flying under the radar until some ecelebs brought in twitter shitposters a few weeks ago.
the most memorable thing to happen before then was the autist shilling his six armed tomboy waifu and her smelly pits

Now, bnha used to be executed well, until yakuza arc came along
That was when shitposting REALLY started to take place.

Sudden x-ray vision is a huge fucking asspull, don't pretend like it isn't.

The training arc at the end of the season was ass. Couldn't the author come up with a better way to have some down time after spiderweb guy?

Ufotable just stretched the fuck out of it, you can read it in like 15 minutes

Ep.19 ruined kny in that it brought the shitty fans who who hate on popular anime(yes fans. Because we all know you guys continue watching the series despite the complaining). And the annoying ones who are probably the same people who over praise bnha.
>>
>>193849931
With all the clichés and tropes being thrown around, it's nice to see a traditional shōnen anime with gorgeous animations. Characters are lovable and charismatic. We get to see the MC overcome hardships and grow as a character.
Kimetsu no Yaiba is a work of art, OP.

Well Kimetsu is one of blandest example of picrelated. They didn't even try to be original. Blatant spam, reposts of "twitter/reddit" jokes, AOTD spam. Now it's blame phase

Yes that's what my favorite anime eceleb said about it, too!

>>193866874
Har har but we all know that one character really drags down the show. It just can't be avoided
>>
>t-the animation!
it's pretty good but explain the manga still being popular despite it's poor art
no, it's not just the artstyle. she just can't draw
>>
>>193868022
You listen to eceleb to form an opinion? kek so sad.

There's always that one show or manga now and then I dont really understand the fan passion for either, OP. Like Reborn. With stuff like naruto and bleach I get it since they captured a young audience at their earlier parts and relied on those readers falling into sunk cost fallacy by the time they degenerated. But on a rare occasion I dont really see the appeal from the very beginning with a popular thing.

Reborn’s anime OPs are hype, mostly female audiences, interesting powers when you first venture into shounen, etc.
>>
>>193849931
Fun things are fun. It's as simple as that.

Sorry OP, I liked this anime before it got popular, and I have superior taste.
>>
>>193849931
>more asspulls than I ever seen
The only asspull was the Kagura Dance, everything else was results of training.

>if you fought him a year later you would have died on the spot
This is always the weakest reply that gets posted when seething cucks can't accept the fact that Zenitsu solo'd an upper moon. Do you think Zenitsu will not also get stronger in a years time as well? It's a newbie demon slayer vs a newbie upper moon and Zenitsu came out on top. You faggots on /a/ can't cope hard enough when it comes to Chaditsu, it's honestly sad as fuck.

Now imagine that there are some people who started watching this show as their one of their first anime, is it really that hard to see why it's popular?

animation good
character design good
monster design amazing

Well great you "don't agree" with it because a shitload of pillars and other central characters are currently dead in the manga which makes that statement a fact, dumbass.

/a/ now has discussion of all anime instead of just CGDGT, it is much less of a shithole than it used to be.
The entire board used to be the equivalent of a /mu/ KPOP general

Black Clover is just Fairy Tail+Naruto
it's so similar to Fairy Tail there's almost grounds to sue
>>
>>193872993
>no mention of story & character personalities
Nice job confirming IQ level of fans.

Aside from magic, guilds and the typical Shounen protagonist. I dont see it.
>>
>>193870366
O MY DEMON SISTER
>>
The kid's entire family aside from sister died, yet they dedicate half the episodes to the MC goofing around and having a fun time. I don't honestly know how anyone can take something like this seriously.
>>
>>193873318
Not really. Asta is only like Naruto because he dreamed of being a Wizard King just like Naruto dreaming of being a Hokage, but their reasons for wanting to achieve their dreams are vastly different: Naruto wanted to be a Hokage for the villagers of Konoha to accept him while Asta wants to be the Wizard King to end discrimination between the social classes.
And aside from the magic, guild/magic knight systems and loud protagonists, I don't see any similarities between Black Clover and Fairy Tail.

Besides Attack on Titan which went for the long arching narrative, most popular shonen has been subversive takes on the genre like OPM or Mob. And then we have Isekai but even it got subversive with Konosuba, Overlord, and Slime. The industry as a whole kind of became self aware and it's not bad it's just kind of new.

KnY just feels like an old fashioned shonen. He wants to save his little sister and there is a big bad. Once he's done the story is over. It's got characters people love, which right now come down to just three and side characters instead of MHA's two dozen thrown at the screen at once, and really good fights and music. That's really all you need for a shonen.

I think it's popularity is more connected to filling a void in the industry that appeared. Not to mention for some reason way more people are actually going on to read the manga which just hypes them up more for the anime.

>shitposting 1x1
Come on, admit it, you like it and it's good. Much better than any shounen in the recent decade.

Hiatus x Hiatus is just a meme. The mangaka would be better off as an LN author.

The whole genre is boring.
attack on titan , one piece, and this all the same.
