Anime and everything else that has to do with it is disposable, awkward, overabundant, insincere, lacking depth, hollow, pretentious, annoying, perverted, disorderly, chaotic, consumerist, most importantly feminine and oriental but none of you are women or Asian, let alone Japanese. Liking this stuff is the same as liking modern art. It's a manifestation of the backwards Japanese identity and world view. Nothing is cute about this stuff, IT'S NOT REAL.
I am so sorry that you're a fag with small amygdalas.

Media that normalfags like is always shit, try watching something good like Kill Me Baby or Mitsuboshi Colors. Your analysis accurately describes the vast majority of anime but not good stuff like these.

You have no concrete evidence that I actually do have an underdeveloped amygdala, you’re just making inferences based on patterns that might only be observable from a select group of individuals but doesn’t explain everyone else’s conditions and circumstances. I find real things cute, I don’t find baseless hollow drawings cute. What’s this obsession with cute things anyway? Aren’t there more interesting aspects to things to revolve your appreciation of them on?
Males predominate among those who enjoyed LS and K-on. It doesn't matter who the intended audience should be, because anime has always been a hobby that appeals primarily to men. It would be incredibly dumb to assume that just because a title has feminine qualities, it will automatically appeal to women more. This is evident from the history of titles of this kind. and women even outside of japan mostly go for yaoi or have a short-lived interest in anime in general.

NPCs can easily immerse as one of the characters in most anime. Men who aren't NPCs can't do that so we like anime with no male characters so we can immerse from the POV of the camera and imagine having all the cute girls as a harem.

Yeah, let's just pretend there was no such thing as the typical awkward male anime fan being behind the success of most things with female characters in it. Because that's just so problematic and offensive to normalfags to believe these days. Everyone should know women were the intended audience of LS and masturbating to Konata's smug ballsack mouth.

That's the reality of how things work, actually. It's been this way long enough to be predictable, even as they claim boys wouldn't be interested in ogling at Sakura Kinomoto or Usagi Tsukino after an episode of DBZ when all of that aired in the west. You can even take Touhou as an example and quickly realize that its fans are overwhelmingly male. In the end, all that matters is popularity. Saying it's for "females" or meant to be enjoyed by them has never worked. Introduction of and emphasis of cuteness of these female characters and moe traits are why it has a large ratio of fans being male to begin with. This thread's OP is just contrarian cope nonsense and nothing more.

Wow, that's a nice schizo-vaguepost. Did you just take random negative adjectives from a dictionary? Remember that we recently literally were raided by soyniggers who attacked anime and lolicon, so it's not a good time make an anti-anime post if you don't want to out yourself as a soynigger too.
>It's not even cute to begin with
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/cute
>Possessing physical features, behaviors, personality traits or other properties that are mainly attributed to infants and small or cuddly animals; e.g. fair, dainty, round, and soft physical features, disproportionately large eyes and head, playfulness, fragility, helplessness, curiosity or shyness, innocence, affectionate behavior.
Maybe you don't know what "cute" means to begin with?
>disposable
Those are some good pictures you attached, because they are examples of anime that millions of people still fondly remember and haven't let go of. I don't think that's what "disposable" means. Also otaku culture is not as much about the individual works themselves, but the overall Soul that the works combined carry.
>awkward
In what way specifically?
>overabundant
And? Is being scarce somehow good?
>insincere
What would you mean by sincere? Something that accurately portrays our ugly world (pic 1 and 2) instead of showing Beauty?
>lacking depth
>hollow
Only bugmen can be obsessed with the contrived novelty of "philosophical" or "deep" (in a bad, bugman way) stories. I see every anime as an Art that teaches you about Life, not just those that go out of their way to "try" and do that
>pretentious
The slop 4dditors place on their 9x9 charts like Lain and Cowboy Bebop, sure.
>annoying
In what way specifically?
>perverted
What's perverted is the (((  abrahamic  ))) brainwashing about female Beauty and sexuality being somehow a bad thing.
>disorderly
>chaotic
In what way specifically?
>consumerist
The computer and internet service you're posting this from is consumerist, and the food you ate today is consumerist. Go live in the woods if you hate consumerism so much. Though even then, piracy is a thing.
>feminine
Are you gay by any chance? Because normal men are attracted to femininity. Though this rightfully deleted post (>>195381) which contained gay porn speaks for itself.
>oriental
And what's the problem? Do you love western values such as racial equality and trans rights?
>none of you are women
Yes, and as normal well-adjusted men, we take delight in looking at cute girls.
>Asian, let alone Japanese
You can appreciate another country's culture and values without being from there.
>Liking this stuff is the same as liking modern art
Pic 3 and 4 are examples of modern '"'art'"'. You must be blind if you think it's anywhere near the same realm as Anime.
>It's a manifestation of the backwards Japanese identity and world view
Yes, liking Cuteness, Beauty, and Soul is so backwards. You are such a good boy modern bugman.

There's nothing "wrong" with it unless you're a degenerate leftnoid (judeo)heretic with no firm cultural roots to bathe thy soul in, just like 1933-1945 German cinema has barely aged at all from an objective spiritual standpoint for it never requires any neo-Hülsenwaldsche "muh submersion of dibsbelieb" as it just werks on its own virtues.

Will never stop laughing at "e-everyone has their own opinion" fags.
The anime art style employs elements of neoteny (large eyes and small nose and mouth, for example) to create objectively cute and attractive female figures, so to a heterosexual man it's indeed very good art.
Even if you don't think it's that good, you have to admit that at least it doesn't try to be intentionally ugly and subversive like most modern "art".

There's also the possibility of the opposite effect, where Japan will just stop seeing westoids as a revenue source and their media will heal, but honestly, we unfortunately can't be too hopeful about it.

I only watch anime for prurient reasons.

Well OK, the 80's/90's ones are legitimately good, like Cyber City Oedo 808, Berserk, Wicked City, Perfect Blue, Akira, Ninja Scroll, and Ghost in the Shell. They are great.

They are good if you rate them by westoid standards, but as anime they are missing the point of the medium.
>Really deeply suspicious of people who use the word "nihilistic" to describe grittier anime
If you love "realism" so much just "touch grass" (using you guys' own expression), or watch some goyflix or pedowood slop. The uniqueness of anime is that it can portray beautiful ideals, and what is negating that blessing and just using it as a projection of our ugly word if not nihilism?

you don't have to revel in struggle to witness it and draw entertainment from triumph or feel empathy and understanding from failure. Thinking that enjoying gritty conflict is sadistic or masochistic is extremely short sighted...the human struggle is so extremely compelling that it moves people in ways that cannot be emulated, no matter how many times it's witnessed. The fact that the medium is so versatile is a boon, and not a failure of the platform. Being able to depict both beauty as well as suffering shows the maturity it carries, and extent of depth it can deliver.

There is a difference between depicting suffering as a journey towards a greater good, and just gratuitously depicting it because that's "mature" or "mentally strong" or whatever.
Also, depictions of suffering do not necessarily have to be "realistic", and depiction of "realism" in fiction (especially non-live action) is made completely redundant and pointless by real life, which surrounds us and is the ultimate realism, and is a sign of spiritual slavery.

Nigger, post-irony's been the standard for at least 8 years now. Part of why things have gotten so shit and gay is because "sincerity bad".
Also westoid works have gotten bad since 2010 because it's all funneled college washouts with gibs doing anything. It's all millennials with 0 life experience and streamlined upbringings, nothing that would influence their work later in life.

Otaku media is different from normal media because otaku culture is self-renewable so it's not necessary to have a lot of "life experience" if you can properly extrapolate from what's already been done and build upon it.
And if anything, "life experience" can be harmful when it's used just to add "realistic" shit. That hack explicitly talked against otaku, and he's also a feminist who says that depictions of womyn in 2D should be le heckin "realistic" and basically 2D girls as they are are too "problematic" for xhim.
By the way, he also literally called himself 'socialist', and he's an environmentard, etc, so I wouldn't say he's a good "person" to listen to and quote.

Otaku culture has been dogshit and stagnant for decades, pretty much everyone's aware of this but the truth is that you can feed otaku fucking gutter oil and they will lap it up as long as it fits a basic criteria of marketability. It's why vtumors are as popular as they are.

>It's why vtumors are as popular as they are
It's more like they combine something that has been popular in the past decade, watching others play games, with otaku elements, so replacing some random faggot with a cute 3DCG model.
Some people say that it's just like watching an e-whore but with a 3DCG model. I don't think that's universally true because each v-tubers tends to have a sort of persona and character to play, so it's closer to watching an anime about girls playing games, though not all v-tubers tend to follow that rigidly, and some tend to unfortunately "break out of character" (behave like their real 3DPD selves) more often than others.
Personally, I don't watch v-tubers because I don't have particular interest in watching other play games and I think streaming "culture" is cringe and so are modern games. But I don't think there's a particular problem in watching Japanese v-tubers who rigidly play their character as long as you don't give them money and don't delve into gossip about 3DPD and don't completely drop actual otaku media.

In terms of showing appreciation of female beauty Japanese media is still going strong and is much better than westrash even if it's slowly becoming worse.

When I was in high school I used to think that anime was cringe, but I had a friend who was into anime. One of the anime he liked was Love Live, and to me that almost looked like the epitome of "weaboo" and cringe, but I had a strong temptation to try it, and when I did, it almost felt like it was awakening something inside of me, but I just watched 2 or 3 episodes and got bored and never looked into it again.
Years later I decided to give anime another chance and I watched a few popular westoid-friendly shows like Death Note and Code Geass, but what ended up being the turning point for me was Mirai Nikki, which is known to be a hyper violent anime, but it ended up awakening that something inside of me, which was MOE as in attraction to 2D girls (because I was infatuated by Yuno).
And now I'm an anime fan, specifically of anime with a high moe concentration such as CGDCT and romance genres. And no, I haven't looked into Love Live again yet. Just like most idol anime, that one looks like a huge rabbit hole, though it's not like some imaginary Love Live super-fans will mock me for only watching one season or two (but who knows, I may end up liking it and becoming a Love Live super-fan who watched everything, myself).

Es, harrend meiner niederen Wortfindung, ist ein vollkommenes Kunstwerk.
Hitler hat das Japanische Volk zurecht als Arier Ehrenhalber empfunden, wie sonst hätten unchristliche fernöstliche Bergeskrieger die Graubündner Alpen des  späten 19. Jahrhunderts in solch natürlicher, vollendlicher Schönheit abbilden können?
Obwohl die Hintergründe und Animation nicht den Objektiven Standards der 1980er entsprechen, so ist deren Farbgebung und Komposition um so wunderbar geistig-seelisch erfüllend - sicherlich mag dies dank der Heldenarbeit eines als Animationsdirecteur agierenden 宮崎駿 möglich sein, so geht diese Seelen-und Willensordnung in der Serie als ganzes nahtlos auf, von der Synchronisierung hin zur Musikalischen Untermahlung.
Alles stimmt, nichts wirkt "fremd" - weder Bildlich, Aural oder Inhaltlich, wobei letzteres zur Hälfte dem Quellmaterial geschuldet sei.
Dieses wurde meiner Erkenntnis nach durchgehend Respektiert in einer Art und Weise, welche dem modern Netflix-ungeziefer und deren ESG-Verwaltern/Verfassungsschützern ja einen regelrechten Aggressionsinfarkt herbeiführen würde.
Rein nach Gefühl scheint kein einz'ges Mitglied der Produktion Hass oder Unwillen hingegen der Schweizerdeutschen Kultur oder gar schlimmer deren Wesensart zu hegen, nicht einmal die in den 1970ern in Europa bereits stark aktive Judeo-Marxistische Geisteszersetzung ist irgendwo auffindbar, welches wiederum resultiert in einem Endprodukt, dessen Merkmale am ähnlichsten noch in antisemitischen Familienfilmen aus der Zeit Hitlers aufzufinden sind.
Besondere Aufmerksamkeit sollt' hier auf die Meisterhaften Hintergründe gelegt werden, da diese trotz geringerer Anzahl an Pinselstrichen im Vergleich zu späteren Werken 宮崎s die Region um Maienfeld in einer Gänzlichkeit abbilden, die ihresgleichen sucht.
Berufend auf einer Reihe autistischer Postings eines gewissen Kaguyabernds auf Kohlchan bezeichne ich diesen Stil als "Neurorealismus", er zeichnet sich aus durch subjektives Realitätsempfinden hervorgerufen durch spezifische Stimulation einiger Hirnareale um das Fehlen Objektiven Details auszugleichen, im Falle des Heidi-Anime äußert sich dies in Bildern, welche wie Erinnerungen wirken.
Hier wird durch geschicktes Nutzen der Rekonstruktiven/Interpretativen Geisteshardware die Uncanny Valley quasi im ganzen übersprungen, da instinktiv erdachte Details weitaus weniger Diskrepanzen aufweisen als tatsächlich existierende.
つまりI can only recommend any Anon with a heart and soul to wash this Anime, it's listed as a children's series but god damnit seeing a new pile of dismembered Hoholstinians on Telegram every day does nothing while this 1970s chinese children's cartoon brought me to the point of tears multiple times and I'm not even gay.
