AOT should've been the winner. Not even being nominated is a disgrace. Demon Slayer was great though.

Ok why are you so worked up?

Vinland Saga & Dororo

I'm not, I just find it strange when people are weirdly ambiguous.

I dropped Vinland a couple of episodes before the end so I can't come close to agreeing with you on that one. Dororo, I want to continue, but put it on hold during the original run.

Just want to make sure though, you watched the latest season of AoT?

Yes I watched it otherwise how would I fully rate it among other animes?

You dropped Vinland Saga but finished AoT S3? Alright.

I've seen so little of the nominees lol. I need to get around to Vinland Saga asap. Seems like it would be my jam. I love the Vikings show.

I like Dororo, hoping to see Season 2.

May binge watch The Rising of the Shield Hero later.

Still hoping for Konosuba Season 3. Long live Aqua!

I've been watching a ton of older anime recently and it looks so good. These new styles are so fugly I could swear half of the characters have progeria or some shit. Still, I'm going to check some of those out.

What a terrible list. Just look at the comedy one for example. Shows like Joshikousei no Mudazukai aren't even on the list of nominees. Or best girl being Raphtalia? What the fuck? Did the voters all watch the same handful of shows?
edit: Is it because the other shows aren't on Crunchyroll?

Why is it so hard for people in our anime threads to actually dissect what they think is bad and give us some reasoning? I say this because it's so much more interesting to know your actual thoughts on specific elements of the shows that you hate instead of just a cursory, "haha, ye plebs". It doesn't convince me in the slightest. At least I might understand your perspective if you went into it a bit more. Plot. Character Development. Design. Animation. Sound, etc.

They cant stand it when a show like AoT actually delivered on its promises, unlike other shows.

The artstyle is anus, everything is brown, the characters are generic, le potatoe grrl XD. The only good thing about aot is the concept. Also with the state of the way anime is I'd rather not talk about why I dislike it because you'll have a million retards jumping down your throat telling you you're wrong even though they've only seen naruto, bleach, opm, aot, and dbz and have 0 perspective.

The thing is, it's difficult for me to believe that they hate it just because it's popular. Also, how many are watching up to the current season if they've been hating for a while?

The episode "Hero" is the strongest contender (according to me) for most impactful anime episode.

It boils down to not wanting to be challenged.

Brap, I just want to know, have you watched the latest season? Depending on how satisfying the plot / development is, I would forgive design and even animation problems (no complaints about animation from me though). Also it seems like you don't like gimmick characters. That's good to know. I'm fine with them, depending on implementation, but the thing about Sasha (potato girl) is that she's the only character like that in the show and she's not always just potato girl.

Edit: Ooh ooh, I've got an idea. Please give us a list of all the anime you've watched so we know exactly what the requirement is to no longer be considered an anime pleb. Knowledge is power. Let's stop with this nebulous bullshit.

I dropped the first season because it sucked.

but the thing about Sasha (potato girl) is that she's the only character like that in the show and she's not always just potato girl.

Would you want to hear what good movies are from somebody who only seen 5 marvel movies and nothing else? Of course you wouldnt. Their opinion is worthless. Do you want to know about good metal from your local neighborhood redneck that only listens to five finger death punch and metallica? of course not.

You are prob talking about brap here. Since I usually don't care what people like to watch and was mostly messing with the man that shitposts so much you literally have to ask him if he is shitposting. Only to be called a hipster for doing so while having a fucking anime thread that starts with a JoJo post and poll.

But I digress!

If we are still talking about AoT then I'll oblige. Spoilers if you aren't up to date or whatever.

I actually enjoyed AoT before Eren's brother literally threw rocks at people. I dropped it then. Literally everything good about the manga died right fucking then to me. I no longer cared about titans or the characters that were still alive. I moved on to uh...idk Firepunch. Which is funny because that also went to shit. ANYWAY apparently there is also fucking neurolink like timetravel shenanigans and Eren's turning le bad so I'm glad I dropped it.

^ Put that shit in a proper spoiler tag. Most people that watch the anime don't read the manga.
