Reminder the rise of /v/edditors coming over to /tv/ as a result of Bane memes has led to a shift in taste on /tv/

99% of the anime threads here are made by /v/edditors who only watch LE EPIC MANIME shonen trash and are too scared to post on /a/ because no one wants to talk about the same 5 old classic anime that only entry level newfaggots know about. Then they cry about /a/ having shit taste and proceed to buy their next avengers movie ticket.

/a/ has actually done a fantastic job at keeping out you /v/eddit scum and so all you faggots come crying here because no one wanted to accommodate your newfaggotry.

Also you all treat /tv/ as a place to ask for recommendations when >>>/wsr/ was made to deal with garbage threads like these that aren't actually discussing anything. This thread should be deleted but since /tv/ mods are garbage it won't be.

you can feel the regret welling up as he types this post, remembering all the hours to days to months he spent watching cartoons. and after all that time, he has nothing to show for it. so he bases his vacant personality entirely around being elitist about other people watching cartoons.

I mean someone who watches Cowboy Bebop isn't really a weeb. It's genuinely a good anime so whatever. But it's not exactly a normie anime (close but not quite) so to those people you might be a weeb. Shit like DragonBall Z is probably a good example of anime that won't make people think you are a weeb.

Not Ghost Stories. Though I guess you could argue the dub is an entirely different show.

Dragon ball z is pretty normie. It's in it's own tier I'd say, it's too big outside of just weeaboos.
Thots are really into Sailor Moon
Shit like Ghost in the Shell, Evangelion, Studio Ghibli, and Bebop might get "artsy" cred

The rest though? Doubt anybody will give a shit besides weebs.

There are people out there who claim to be into anime but just like the "vaporwave" shit and posting random gifs of 80s-90s anime, they don't actually watch it. If you're dealing with a hot girl or some musician type or something, that's probably the case.

I watch anime when I'm going to bed drunk and enjoy quite a bit of it, but I never talk to anyone about it, or even do more than lurk /a/ to see if there's anything interesting coming out.

My all time favorites are probably:

>gankotsuou
>future boy conan
>gits: sac

Those are all very, very good shows, though everything pre-Inuyasha Takahashi is top-tier; I just really like MI, and it's the only one that actually finishes the story.

japanese voice acting sounds retarded, dont get me wrong, they all sound like kids and overly emotional
but the dub actors dont even fucking try, it's always the same 4-5 voices, low budget script with awkward translations, and it never fits the character.

the bebop dub actually works though, because the characters arent even supposed to be japs. that's probably it, so it doesnt sound off. if you're watching some show set in an obviously japanese setting with people named Haruki Matsui I don't want to hear Steve Blum and Johnny Younggun.

Do you think this because you were 14 when it premiered in the States? If a brand-new-to-anime anon wanted to watch it, would you still feel the same and tell them to not bother with it, or would you let them experience it and build on their experience from there?

99% of anime is poorly written poorly drawn cliche bullshit meant to sell toys to children/manchildren. For every "good" anime there's a sea of 1000 schoolgirl moeshit, "edgy" shonen, or unfunny ecchi.

I'd say it is the plot and soundtrack. It wasn't made just for teenagers, if it was made for them at all. Jazz and teenagers do not mix so the soundtrack is by default made for an older audience. As for the plot, it just doesn't have a "progression" the same way a teenager can identify it in Naruto or Gurren Lagan.

Good points though, not to mention the introspective nature of some of the episodes that centered on who Spike, Jet, Faye, Ed and even Ein were.

That is what I said at >>106887329

This lack of progression you are feeling is erroneous. Spike is already a badass, he has a backstory, so does Jet etc, a backstory that unfolds throughout the anime. There is no need to watch them grow up to become Hokage or Triple Super Sayan with purple hair.
That is why it is short and concise, 0 fillers. You do not need 500+ episodes to present a good story.
Lastly, just a question. Do you expect to have the stamina required and the lost braincells that go with watching Dragonball, Naruto, One Piece? These are 3 behemoths with close to 3000 episodes, films, AMVs. If CB was too much for you, all hope is lost.

No one said anything about needing a backstory. How about just having a story span 26 episodes? Something that, at the end of an episode, will make you watch another one to find out what happens next? That's the whole reason to watch a series for me.

The main story for all the characters without going crazy about it is literally "escaping/getting rid of your past - starting anew".
What you are correctly describing is cliffhangers, something that I love as well and the reason I wait for a series to either end or have at least 2-3 seasons on its belt. Like Peaky Blinders now, I am ready to binge watch it because I can move from episode to episode and satisfy that cliffhanger "wtf" moment, if it has any.
And that is my point, CB does not need any cliffhangers or fillers. Just because I appreciate cliffhangers myself, doesn't mean that CB has to use the same medium and not be appreciated.

In old anime it isn't as prevalent.
Apart from that, anime dubs are embarrassing. Their VAs are bottom of the barrel F-tier actors who also voice hentai because they can't get another job.

Horseshit. Even some of the old animes characters sound way too feminine. It's awful. Yeah dubs aren't great (primarily because they use the same VA over and over) but hearing some masculine character talk like a middle aged woman is just as bad.

For me it goes even beyond that. I was in Germany at some point in the 90's, and I remember watching
Arnold on TV in Kindergarten Cop.
Thing is the Germans dub everyone. Problem is we all love Arnold because of his accent. So here is a situation where an Austrian/German whatnot is loved for his English, but then he is dubbed over by a German voice actor who is then trying to imitate his mannerisms.
Anime dubs are the same for me, just leave the original voice actors and language alone ffs.
