People feel like they need to create a legacy when names are involved.

Also on plebbit people don't voice their opinion, they voice whatever they think will get max up arrows.

That being said the same mentality now plagues Sup Forums more than ever, but instead of upvotes it is about being as contrarian as possible to get replies in an attempt to have others recognize your existence.

People used to post what they thought was funny or shit or bad, now people post whatever they think others will think is funny shit or bad, basically plebbit in reverse.

Because every "best anime ever" thread devolves into people only picking the most critically acclaimed series of all time and then nitpicking each other for hours.

Why does this board refuse to admit to any faults here and thinks it's perfect?

I come here for shitposting reasons but niggas circlejerk over their garbage shounenshit or whatever LN anime is airing.

Levi Morales

How is that a circlejerk? As I understand the term it's just people reaffirming each other but nitpicking isn't a part of that. And of course critically acclaimed works will be the most acclaimed, no shit.

Logan Evans

The one thing I like is that for the most part people don't really care that much about 90% of seasonal anime after they finish airing, so things actually keep in motion rather than circlejerking two or three shows from every year.

Austin Ramirez

It's still not technically circle jerking if there's dissent towards opinions, a lack of disagreement is basically the definition of a circle jerk. I guess you could say the guy criticizing those series is interrupting the circle jerk.

A lot less in the past because it was harder to track posts across a thread.

Now you have thick red lines and massive (you)s to denote where replies are. You can literally filter a thread to only show your posts and replies to your posts for maximum shitpost efficiency. There is 0 need to read what others are saying, this wasn't possible in the past without the know how and, probably more important for us clammy neets, the willingness.to make a script/extension. Even if you did make this script or extension, it meant you spent enough time on Sup Forums to think it was worth making the script.

Now every John Dalton who wanders onto Sup Forums gets it by default.

For a non-profit site like Sup Forums increasing browsing simplicity is not a pro, but hey, who am I kidding, Sup Forums stopped being non-profi the moment we got japanesem00t. Fucking nipkike, hope you read this, go drown yourself.

People feel like they need to create a legacy when names are involved.
Constantly reposting memes and protecting a certain narrowly projected persona is if nothing but legacy/ego protection. That's Sup Forums in a fucking nutshell. An incredibly autistic nutshell. It pretty much always has been that way and the way of anonymous/pseudononymous places online. You'll find it everywhere where the lowest common denominator has access to the Internet because unlike the minority of humanity, they and most anons value ego over ideas.

People used to post what they thought was funny or shit or bad, now people post whatever they think others will think is funny shit or bad, basically plebbit in reverse.
The modus operandi is the same now as it was then, the memes/trends have merely changed. Human behaviour doesn't fundamentally change over the course of a few years. Your googles are on too tight, user.

Legacy of a group =/= legacy of a person. While what you say is true, it is incomparable to how reddit operates on individual names.

The modus operandi is the same now as it was then, the memes/trends have merely changed. Human behaviour doesn't fundamentally change over the course of a few years. Your googles are on too tight, user.

While I get where you were coming from, I can't really call shimoneta a flop simply because it was an absurdly niche anime to start with, it is quite literally pants on head retarded.

As for SAO, ya, it desrves all the shit it gets, but it isn't as bad as Naruto by a long shot. So if you are going to name shitty shounen shit, name the shittiest ones and go with Naruto.

Legacy of a group =/= legacy of a person
That's bullshit and you know it. The hivemind effect renders individuality down to an amorphous mass, which is exactly why places like Sup Forums attract so many insecure autists. It's a fucking save space for them and yes, the in-group biased is heavy enough that the individual projects themselves as indivisible from the group no different to how a shoal of fish function. Your generic drone like response in defence of your hivemind is fucking indicative of this very thing. You are demonstrating exactly what you are trying to refute. Well done, autismo.

I don't which Sup Forums you're talking about, but the Sup Forums I'm on right now seems to be no different from the other so-called communities. Madoka and Jojo threads in particular, exhibit the same sort of shit that made me quit caring about traditional forums.

In fact, the structure of Sup Forums (ease of posting and being anonymous/not needing to create an account, no retarded layout like reddit, minimalist design) is pretty much the only reason why I'm still on Sup Forums and not others.

I pretty much agree. I would say Tatami is more like five episodes too long. By the fourth episode you're like "okay, I get the major theme you're trying to illustrate in every episode." Then it keeps doing the same thing for six more episodes. The only people who don't complain about this are people who went to college and then talk about how the show "perfectly captures the college experience." I guess that's valuable to them for some reason. I still enjoyed it a lot, like 7-8/10 probably, and I loved the ending obviously. But in the middle there I wasn't getting too much more out of it.

When it comes to a unique structure like Tatami, people with short attention spans don't see or appreciate the nuances between different timelines.
