ITT: Patrician Anime.
the first season of SZS is pretty good but the later seasons really felt like "you must be this japanese to ride"
I didn't get like half the jokes
There are people on Sup Forums right now who haven't seen this.
This anime is pretentious. Monogatari is a much better SHAFT anime.
It's pretentious in a good way.
I love that you "muh pretentiousness" fucks pretend that things with meaning are pretentious because how dare a story try to teach a lesson, that's for edgy hipster teenagers. I'd rather watch something that goes out of it's way to look like it has meaning, but it's actually completely flat and devoid of any meaning or interesting message.
Are you okay anon?
Is everyone really ok with a shameless rec thread?
Sup Forums feels weird today
It's not a thread for recs, it's a dick measuring competition for who has the best taste.
what do you think rec threads are for?
Monogatari is trash and plebs who like it make me angry
Especially plebs who act like it's better than shows with real meaning
It's the ultimate meme anime, it's entire fanbase and it's entire reputation as "deep" is based entirely on memetics. It's popular because some people watched it and talked about how "deep" it was without understanding that that was the intent.
Then it snowballed from there, pleb after pleb being told it was "deep", watching it, pretending to understand it to fit in, while not getting that there's actually nothing there, before spreading the meme on to their friends like a cancer.
It's all a meme, anon. All of it, and that's why I hate it.
not simply loving Monogatari for the incredible variety of top-tier girls
getting this mad about people having different opinions than you
The show can be enjoyed on multiple levels. You can try to read into it or you can sit back and enjoy the design.
Why are you acting like that's a bad thing?
People always talk about how great Haibane Renmei is. I watched half of it and just don't get it. If I go back and finish it out will my opinion change or am I just too much of a pleb?
I'm this mad at plebs acting like they shouldn't be lined up against the wall and shot for buying into corporate memetics schemes
Because there's absolutely nothing to "read into". By even implying there is, you're proving that you bought into the meme. You should feel ashamed of yourself.
No, you're right, there's nothing special about Haibane Renmei.
You're not going to get it during the first half, keep watching. Haibane isn't as much of a masterpiece as everyone says but it's still pretty great in that later half.
Do you want to give evidence for you point or just keep repeating your opinion like it's a fact?
This show is pretentious. Ergo Proxy is a much better anime.
I BET YOU FUCKING LIKE MONOGATRI YOU FUCKING PLEB
FUCKING DIE IF YOU CANT UNDERSTAND ART HOLY SHIT
FUCK THIS FUCKING BOARD AAAAA
This anime is pretentious. Subete ga F ni Naru is a much better anime. Also, Sora no Woto is Haibane Renmei done right.
What exactly makes Tatami pretentious?
What "evidence" is there for interpretation of a show? Especially one with no message? How about you tell me what you think the "meaning" to memeagatari is, and I'll tell you why you're wrong, instead of you expecting me to address hundreds of reddit-tier meme opinions?
The only good things are the art and Paranoid Android.
Anon anything that tries to differentiate itself from most of the schlock that's usually released is considered pretentious. Know this.
Pretentious is the most useless critical term anyone could ever use.
I won't give evidence for how monogatari has no meaning because it just doesn't
I don't think there's one special super deep "message" to monogatari because I'm not a raging autist, I just find the story and characters enjoyable.
And it made me cry like a bitch a few times.
What the fuck is a deep and meaningful show? That's the real meme.
Pretty much this.
And why should Monogatari be deep? Is it impossible to convey a simple message throughout the show that easily appeals to large number of people without being particulary "deep". For me atleast Monogatari was a coming of age story done right.
You might understand it better but you might not like it better. More interesting stuff happens, but the tone doesn't really change.
I'd recommend watching until the well, if that doesn't hook you I doubt anything else will.
Mouryou no Hako
Lots of talking, very little straightforward storytelling. Same goes for most things called pretentious.
Not him, but you're argument would have been a lot better off had you not responded, especially with that response.
What makes you think I'm trying to make an argument? I'm just giving an opinion.
This thread is so fucking pretentious, there's no meaning here at all, you all fell for the meme and are just pretending you get it when there's nothing to fucking get. Everyone shits on threads with real deep discussion, and just enjoys meaningless shit threads like this and pretends they're deep.
Dropped after five episodes. Nips are so bad at humor that it's almost impressive.
Good pick. Thought it would be terrible, but ended up being one of my all time favorite shows.
Learn to express your opinion in a way that doesn't make yourself seem like a adhd baby that needs constant action, and a story spoonfeed directly into your brain.
But he didn't say that it was a bad thing, he was just saying the qualifiers for what makes people call something pretentious.
Feels bad knowing that this is the only gr8 anime in this whole thread and the rest is just shitposting.
