I do like SOL but most Kirara series and similar stuff are too bland and most girls aren't good. Even stuff like Flying Witch only work in manga form and the anime adaptions feel so soulless and shit. Shows like Silver Spoon or Working are the best type of SOL. This season has Kuma Miko, Anne Happy, Tanaka-kun, and Bakuon (manga is still a lot better) though

I love moe SOL but can't stand yuri pandering. As such, a large bulk of moe SOL in recent years is unwatchable.

You dont need progression to feel things. K-On! has some of the most touching moments I've seen in anime aside from the graduation. Lucky Star has Konata's mom scene, which is entirely a referential comedy. Even Wakaba Girl, a short, had a few really touching moments that affected me.

Also, there are very, very small amount of anime that entirely focuses on girls being cute. In fact, most of them are comedies designed to bring out a lighthearted mood. The only one I can recall being completely focuses on cute girls being cute is a VN called Hanahira, and it's fucking terrible.

Austin Cruz

What about people who love moe SoL and basically all types of anime as well, but hate diehard SoLfags who generally hate most anime outside that genre and are very vocal about it on Sup Forums? Especially ones that proclaim that you only have taste if you are one of them, refuse to accept any other genre of anime for AOTY/AOTS, shit on fans/waifufags of non-SoLfags characters as being seasonal shits but give a free pass to seasonal SoLfags waifufags, and go apeshit when people sexualize a SoL character?

My fellows newcomers, sol is good and it depends on the world build up and the plot and it can have all of these if you are a good developer/writer. If an author spends most of his time on writing his world, his character interactions, has godly visuals, and has godly seneic views/atmosphere then it will be entertaining as hell

Why?

Lucas King

moefags unironically roleplay as little moe girls
moefags and moe SoL is why anime is ostracized
moefags always deny anime can and may have deeper underlying messages, instead play off with fedora tipping meme
moefags unironically justify their childish taste because "it's just cartoons"
moefags thinks anyone not sharing their taste is a normalfag or /v/tard
they ignore the fact majority of moefags are the hikki NEETs that Japan and basically everyone else despise.

Fact being people who watches SoL moe is trying to fill an empty void in their life because they lack what SoL exemplify, social interaction or more specific, female social interaction.

There's a reason why Sup Forums calls being normalfags for not liking moe, because they actually act human. Surprise surprise.

I thought it was mainly because of people who go around in real life and act like degenerate scum. Usually shounen battle fans and fujoshi around middle school to college age. That, and Western pop culture portraying anime as hyperactive shouldn't battle/Pokémon with annoying voices and obligatory tentacle porn.

Easton Rogers

I think I watched all the good ones. When I first got into anime, though, they were like God's gift to the Earth. I finally found a media that understands me.

When I would read books as a kid, for some reason the action and story progression parts would bore me but I would love the parts where the characters would do regular stuff or just hang out. Like Harry Potter, liked the parts where the gang would hang out and have fun together but all the high speed wizard crap bored the shit out of me. I don't know why I have that attitude but its nice that Japan understands these feelings.

People that are into normalfag entry tier anime are too young and poor to drop their lives and move to Japan. That doesn't stop them from sperging it up in high schools and anime conventions. Moe simply appeals to an older demographic.

Besides, isn't Davido-kun's favorite anime Eva?

I don't know why anime has to have a greater purpose than what conveniently suits a person in the moment. If I want a deep philosophical anime I can watch it. If I want a gross over the top grimdark cyber fantasy I can watch that. And if I want to watch a vapid show about blossoming friendships between young braindead females I can watch that. I can understand that everyone isn't into the same things I am, that some people find everything that has to deal with adorableness repugnant, but that isn't a slight on my or their character. I just have more anime that I can enjoy. :/ No need to make a stink.

I do feel that oversaturation is a problem (anime needs MORE violence, and the right amount of saccharin bullshit), but I'm not going to complain too much, I can just watch anime from the 90's or western media that's saturated with that shit if I feel like it.

Cmon guys, it's just escapism. It's not healthy.

A space pirate who acts like a person in real life would is more "realistic" than a 16 year old who gets drunk after one sip of bear and who doesn't know what a penis is.

They didn't play and you still lost.

I don't think it's fundamentally about what kind of anime is better (manime vs moe) but that moe rarely tries to set a high bar and to something impressive. Some might say that's the appeal but I think that's retarded.

I watch moe SoL if it has some male characters in it. Pure female cast and such things are pure trash though. Removing the entire spectrum of one gender including the interaction with the other gender is just retarded and shooting your leg with no apparent reason. For example I enjoyed the early Minami-ke seasons. The main characters were all girls but the fact that some side characters were male made the whole series way more refreshing and offered quite some variation.

You're seriously a moron if you both can't immediately tell this and let them dictate what's watchable to you. Would you let teens recommend you music too, and go "wellll you can't totally shit on dubstep because look at this youtube video with 100 million views"? Fuck no. Anime's the same.

There's like 6 of them that fall somewhere in the spectrum loosely, 7 with Pan de Peace. I'm just watching them all. Nothing airing right now is in the immediate "holy fuck this is going to go down in history as a legend" like you could tell from NNB's first ep. But there are some pretty good shows in this mix.

The only ones that are actually really SoL to me though as Flying Witch and Sansha Sanyou. The rest have different mixes in them, like Bakuon is more like moe/ecchi/comedy rather than real SoL. Still a decent show though.

Jackson Wilson
Jackson Wilson

Flying Witch will most likely be one of my favorite shows this year.
Kumamiko is actually pretty funny.
Unhappy is fun too. Seeing the girls strive for happiness despite all the shit they go through makes me feel warm.

Pan de Peace was fun at first, but got boring fast.
Sansha Sanyou was disappointing. Not as funny as Love Lab or Mikakunin.
Tanaka kun was straight up boring as shit.

Nothing against moe Slice of Life. What Sup Forums really needs to realize is that there is only one enemey. The people that willingly eat shit and defend it. Every genre can produce quality.

Eli Hughes
Eli Hughes

I'd say a.) normalfags are not always anti-moe, but often are, so I think many /a/non just bridge them mentally as the same people who hate moe and anyone who likes it. People caught in the crossfire get pissed and such so indeed as you say moefags need to be more specific. However, neither side is blameless.

b.) Some blame moefags for the state of the industry today and focus fire on anyone who accepts moe. They mistake cause-and-effect; Japan does whatever it wants irreverent of the West. Naturally, people who like what Japan is into right now are inclined to hang around here. Anti-moefags don't like seeing people accepting things they don't understand, so they shit on moefags endlessly. Moefags return fire and so on.

Go to futaba and ask about how the West influences the anime scene, and they say flat-out we, Sup Forums and the Western scene, don't fucking matter, because we don't buy BDs. We're just comments from the peanut gallery and it's the people who put their money where their mouth is that get results. So really because we're all mostly observers on the side, people who get up in arms about moe really need to fucking calm down because they can't do shit about it and they should just ignore things they don't like.

For all that wordswordswords I think it (ironically) doesn't actually communicate moe properly.

Having known the feel for a good 10 years, I still struggle to define it in words, and honestly I am not sure the English language actually has a proper verb to easily pin it. It also is not something that you can be learned or taught but is intrinsically felt, which along with the language breakdown, makes it all the more nebulous to communicate. When you know the feeling though and try to figure out a way to describe it beyond just "cuuuute!", you probably are brushing up against it and will soon realize you can perceive it.

I'd describe it as a range of things, because really it comes across as a range of emotions that may overlap moe but also be colored with other directions. Not every show clearly designed to be moe successfully elicits it; people who aren't sensitive to moe think all the shows look/seem the same thus they must all be the same, but because they just can't feel moe period, they think all shows with moe in them, even the good ones, are equally dead. It's like if you were physically unable to feel adrenaline surges, all action movies might feel the same to you (and probably all suck).

Getting those notes out of the way (important notices to me, but I rarely see people put thought into it like this here), I would describe moe as "the opening of your heart to someone and accepting them out of empathy". The follow-up to that initial action can be anything - daughteru, waifu, befriending, blends of these etc. This is where people get deeply confused as to what moe is. But that initial opening is the one thing in common.

I thought moe is when you get that feeling in your heart like you're driving on a rollercoaster down a steep slope.

How do you know it's pandering?

moefags and moe SoL is why anime is ostracized
There's a meme going around that moe shows make up the vast majority of the shows produced today, which is completely false. People also have completely warped ideas of what these shows are like. I don't see how moe fans are responsible for that.

they ignore the fact majority of moefags are the hikki NEETs that Japan and basically everyone else despise.
Otaku, hikikomori and NEET are all different terms that mean different things.

If they hate it so much, why do they keep making it and why is Love Live so popular (out of all the Japanese moviees screened last year, it was the 8th most popular one, and has been used to advertise businesses and products etc.)?

And why do people keep posting that video as if it meant anything at all?

People who bitch and moan about "moeshit" are the ones who've seen barely any anime.

The vast majority of people don't know what it is.

It's something that's needed when you are watching constant action shows or something thats required for you to fully focus on.

With SoL shows you can just sit back and fucking relax, Switch the brain off and watch them do things people do everyday instead of local MC goes into a mech to save the slut from alien zombies.

I watched a fair bit of moe, Gochiusa, NNB, K-ON, Kinmoza,, Chuuni and Amagi Brilliant Park. The latter two doesnt count but every time i watch pure moe i find myself texting on my phone or just pause to browse Sup Forums. Its that mindnumbingly boring. And yes i finish all those shows. Only Amagi Park was interesting to me and kept my focus. I have sincestopped by watching moe sinceit left a bad taste

I never said anything about manime shows, and I hate the meme because it's a sign of anti-intellectualism and looking down on shows (lol I don't need to "turn on my brain" when I'm watching this stupid moe show).

texting on your phone

Well thats because you are a normalfags.

He's saying it's not just an excuse, you don't watch moe to "turn your brain off". That suggests you don't actually connect with it, because when you're feeling moe you are quite fucking aware; actually an awakened moe feeling can make you sit up and focus hard on what you're watching because it's just so delightful and you want to soak it all in.

I understand you're not against it (sort of like ) but it's not clear you really get it either. Which is fine too I guess; it's clear not everyone can feel it. It's not a super srs bsnss matter if you can sense it or not, just pointing out that if you know the feeling well you very likely wouldn't call the shows braindead/boring.

Furthermore moe can show up in many ways that may not just limited to calm sol/comedy shows. For example mahou shoujo (like Precure).

How many times do you think I laughed and scrolled past it?

I don't know how to word it but every time someone tries to discuss the effect of watchign SoL people just spout "Meme!" "I hate this x word."

Well moe is not that boring but it's not something you're aching to finish because of how relaxed and slow paced it is.

Actually moe doesn't do shit for you if you're really depressed; one of the main symptoms of the disease is nothing you like helps.

So chalk that one up for another one of those excuses newfags/normalfags bullshit to try to cover up/redirect from the fact that they utterly lack an understanding of the appeal. They do that because they won't let themselves flat-out say "I don't get it" because that admits they're clueless.

I watch anime for the boys if it's not serious, why would I watch boring girls doing boring things? Don't tell me you think it's objectively good enough that you'd watch a gender swapped version of most SoL?

I'm not sure if it helps, but experiencing emotions vicariously through characters lets me feel things even though I normally don't.
