Some of you cross-boarders may be familiar with the Weebteam already. For those who aren't, we are a collective for the promotion of quality content on /mu/, and we have decided to expand our reach to the rest of 4chan. We come to /a/ today with a chart we have made of recommended anime, hoping to enlighten the common /a/utist. We're sure you're all tired of the influx of winter break plebeians (that's a /mu/ term, for those unaware), and we're here to help.
Well, without further ado, Weebteam presents to you Anime for the Elite - A Chart of Anime Approved by Weebteam. Feel free to comment as you wish (that's the kind of intellectually-stimulating discussion Weebteam encourages) and repost the chart as you like whenever you feel the need to educate the misinformed.
(USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST)
Such a surreal mix of different anime. You can really tell that it was made by one non-discerning and ignorant person taking suggestions from a number of random people with conflicting tastes.
>Some of you cross-boarders
>collective for the promotion of quality content on /mu/
>enlighten the common /a/utist
>we're here to help
>educate the misinformed
>all this "we are here to spread our superior taste"
Holy shit i'm dying here.
Tell me this is bait or trolling please.
By the way, that chart is shit and stupid for the most part and you didn't need to introduce yourself to have us understand you do not frequent /a/ or know shit about anime.
But that's the last of the problems in your post.
The sign of a true plebeian. He must denounce that which he does not understand. Insults such as stupid encourage no real thought to be discussed. And going against that which was deemed by the patrician council of 4chan also only denies oneself a true freedom in the mediums of entertainment. Like the 15 year old girl who reads Twilight because Ulysses is a book for perverted old men, she may not see the truth of her pleasure realized.
Quentin wishes he were a member of the weebteam. We, however, only associate with posters of a higher quality such as the one and only clt of /mu/ fame.
Eclecticism is not a bad thing. In fact, it is encouraged in intellectual communities.
Sorry, anon. Some people are opposed to discussion on this website for some reason. Us in the weebteam are here to talk though. What do you think about the chart? Any of your favorites make it?
Yes, your taste, most likely.
If you said that thinking the rest of the anons ITT would agree with you to be anti-Weebteam I'm sorry to inform you that you just exposed your godawful taste in anime.
Ah, yes! I was not the one who chose La Planete Sauvage as it is on my to-watch list. I think I might get around to that tomorrow because all but one of my classes ended up cancelling for Thanksgiving break. Pretty excited for it.
You sounds stupid in every single of your posts, assuming this isn't blatant baiting and trolling, but ok.
The picks are inconsistent to say the least, with iconic and bland (or downright bad) shows side by side. And no, i'm not going to point you to which ones i'm talking about.
The "avoid these" idea as whole is stupid, as most anime as whole (like music or any form of media) is shit.
The chart format, image quality and easiness to read are bad.
The whole "be enlightened by these bunch of pick made by us" attitude is worse that everything above combined, especially when not backed up by a decent chart.
3/10 let this thread die and don't come back.
You're selection is so sporadic and arbitrary. Why FMA but not brotherhood? Why sam champ but not bebop?
It just looks like you took every epic maymay on /a/ and made it into a chart.
And what ass did you pull Fantastic Planet out of? That's literally not even an anime.
>You sounds stupid
The rest of your post can be explained by the simple fact that you have inferior taste and most likely haven't watched even half of the anime on the chart.
Well, not everyone can comprehend some of the complexities the chart has to offer.
Would you please stop trolling?
Your points aren't even decent enough to warrant a counter argument
Even before looking at the chart it was clear from your ostentatious attitude what it was going to be like. Seeing it only confirmed my thoughts. You're not as bad as some of them, but you're still very similar to those types who think an anime has to be artsy, obscure or old to be good.
FMA:B and AoT are vastly overrated but they're not so bad that they need to be religiously avoided. There's also a lot of poor quality/randomness in your main selection. From your picks (and the artifacting too) it's clear your understanding of anime is immature.
Even looking at highly scored MAL titles would be better.
No picks were an accident. The entire chart was made under careful consideration.
1. Eclecticism and classics are not inherently bad and should be encouraged. Do not feel threatened because the chart challenges your comfort zone and/or is meant for beginners. We must all start somewhere and a broad taste is much more preferable to a narrow one.
2. Average does not equate to shit. Most things are average. The idea of a list of bad subjects in a medium is pretty useful as you know what is and is not at least average.
3. Sorry, not everyone can afford photoshop.
4. There is nothing wrong with being a respected critic. There is nothing wrong with following a respected critic. Not everyone can experience everything. That is why critics exist. You are twisting the point of our eagerness to help into something quite rude.
Not everyone can achieve the tastes of the chose few. We wish you well in your further endeavors.
>Why FMA but not brotherhood?
In diverging from the manga FMA became a beautiful allegory on the War on Terror and racism/stereotyping in general. In terms of pure plot, Aikawa was able to make a much more engaging one than the mangaka herself, with plenty of twists and a bittersweet ending that was more consistent with the theme of equivalent exchange.
>Why sam champ but not bebop?
Samurai Champloo was a masterpiece of choreography, highlighted by an excellent and anachronistic soundtrack that paralleled the time-independent environment of the show. Bebop is a nice space opera but there are better (see Legend of the Galactic Heroes).
>And what ass did you pull Fantastic Planet out of? That's literally not even an anime.
Thank you. Nice to hear an anon that isn't tainted by preemptive bias.
>an anime has to be artsy, obscure or old to be good
Do you not see FMA and Death Note? Fucking Keroro is on there. Did you even look at the chart?
Brotherhood is a typical shounen that places emphasis on action and plot progression over character development and metaphor.
>hetalia: axis powers
How is nazi apologist fujoibait any better than SnK?
What's wrong with the existing lists on the /a/ wiki?
Why no gundam stuff?
Why the casual /mu/ elitism? Why even post?
Your image resizing sucks asshole. And a lot of these aren't grouped by or even have the genre specified. The ones on the /a/ wiki do.
This fucking chart mang.
>Legend of galactic heros
I just cant
>Anime for the Elite
Holy shit is this some sort of reverse trolling going on on this thread
>Fantastic Planet (French: La Planète sauvage, lit. The Savage Planet) is a 1973 cutout stop motion science fiction allegorical film directed by René Laloux, production designed by Roland Topor, written by both of them and animated at Jiří Trnka Studio.
So it was a co-production between a Czech and a French dude, it had nothing to do with Japan.
>Kill Me Baby
I like this chart
>since your mu i would thought you would include cowboy bebop
Don't really see the connection.
The two aren't mutually exclusive.
This is a good idea. Perhaps Weebteam will make one in the future.
>deriding weebs on /a/
Are you retarded? You don't belong here.
I've addressed this.
Thank you. Feel free to repost it at your leisure.
Then the former fits the model while the latter doesn't.
>What's wrong with the existing lists on the /a/ wiki?
They are overencumbersome and rather plebeian in nature.
>Why no gundam stuff?
>Why the casual /mu/ elitism? Why even post?
If you think this is elitism, you haven't actually met an elitist.
>Your image resizing sucks asshole. And a lot of these aren't grouped by or even have the genre specified. The ones on the /a/ wiki do.
1. Very helpful.
2. Judging a book by it's cover is a bad practice. Why do you need to know a genre going into a show to enjoy it?
3. So because a plebeian chart does it, you need to be handheld always?
/a/ already has plenty of better recommendation charts. They don't get shared very often nowadays, but yours certainly isn't a good replacement.
Holy fuck, are you guys for real? This is the funniest shit I've read since dostedt.
>deriding weebs on /a/
>Are you retarded? You don't belong here.
>Using weeaboo on /a/
>Telling others they don't belong
> we are a collective for the promotion of quality content on /mu/
>has a fucking french animation title with no connection to Nippon at all in the list
>We're sure you're all tired of the influx of winter break plebeians (that's a /mu/ term, for those unaware)
Holy shit, yeah, I think its fair to say no one likes recommendation threads but holy shit, it isn't even winter break yet!
>Anime for the Elite - A Chart of Anime Approved by Weebteam
Your name means nothing to pretty much everyone here. I wouldn't be surprised if the same applies over in /mu/.
>hoping to enlighten the common /a/utist.
They seriously believe they are helping to bring the average narutard into the light
That's so fucking elitist its downright retarded.
And that makes Brotherhood the scourge of the earth? I actually dislike Brotherhood and enjoy 2003 a lot more, but this is silly.
Anyway, good for you if you're trying to capture some of the worthwhile titles out there, but I really hope you don't actually think this chart is a significant, large-scale representation of good anime. It's basically "anime I have watched and liked."
>Feel free to comment as you wish (that's the kind of intellectually-stimulating discussion Weebteam encourages) and repost the chart as you like whenever you feel the need to educate the misinformed.
>gets buttravaged over every valid critique
>tries to claim that because some animation techniques used by the French were used by Japanese people that French animation is anime
Just fuck off already.
Buddy, I think you might want to take a look at what you said.
Haha! Very funny! Oh man, just because someone can converse they are automatically autistic /g/ users who worship rms.
There's an art to creating a chart that this chart lacked. Weebteam simply addressed the issues and made another. Leave the artform of chart making to the artists please.
Weebteam is a real /mu/ collective. Search the /mu/ archive if you must.
Very constructive. Thank you.
I'm not asking you, I'm asking for a third party opinion. Preferably with screenshots or other evidence (fabricated is acceptable as long as it's elaborate enough - if you're a good troll, you'll do it).
I haven't laughed this hard in weeks, holy shit. This is as funny as the fucking retard who keeps advertising his shitty forum with 4 users
This shit has been up for over a fucking hour, I'm dying.
Oh lord, you actually don't know the origins of anime, and here you are posting on /a/.
The term "anime" comes from the French term for animation, "dessin animé." The animation techniques common in early anime were pioneered in France. This is why Lupin III was one of the first "anime," as we now know the term, and why Miyazaki planned a co-production of Lupin VIII.
What the hell are you talking about? Are you lost?
Ask anyone on /mu/ who we are and they'll tell you. You sound very foolish right now.
>There's an art to creating a chart that this chart lacked. Weebteam simply addressed the issues and made another. Leave the artform of chart making to the artists please.
Then why does the chart look like shit?
Also it really feels llike an I watched it and like it chart, it's missing many good anime, while following no criterium for what is good and what is bad.
/mu/ is a board full of sixteen year olds and retards, no one cares about your shitty chart. I'm hoping you're just fucking around, because you seriously need mental help if you're being genuine in everything you say.
>you sound very foolish right now
Keep all that irony away from strong magnets.
Seriously? Do people actually prefer FMA? I don't really find much issue with the rest of this list, but what was so wrong about Brotherhood but right about FMA?
>If you're not going to contribute to the discussion, go back to /b/
>contribute to the discussion
Not so. I've posted our /mu/sic chart above.
Japan is one of the most experimental and innovative countries for music. There's a reason we proudly call ourselves weebs.
>it's missing many good anime
Do you think we could have feasibly included every good anime ever made?
>while following no criterium for what is good and what is bad
We clearly stated that these are patrician anime.
Well....that was irrelevant.
Feel free to check the /mu/ archive any time. Hell, make a thread there right now asking about us.
Mods are asleep. Post weebteam.
I checked the archive like you suggested, and it turns out, people hate you! Who would have guessed.
My troll detector is getting fuzzy with this thread.
Are you really this dense? Jesus Christ!
Maybe because the Japanese have made many a good album in their time?
Firstable, it is called an aesthetic. Secondable, asserting your plebeian tastes does not change the fact that weebteam created a chart made of only the finest patrician anime. Now please revise your writing before I address you any further.
No, they would berate you for destroying a perfectly fine turntable.
That's something a plebeian who was mocked by /mu/ would say.
The pacing. The story. The characters. Just about everything. Even the original movie is better than the Brotherhood movie. Dear God, have you seen the original movie?
>Fullmetal Alchemist is recommended
>Brotherhood is under avoid
I can't tell if this is a blatant troll or ridiculously shitty taste. I mean, it's just so fucking stupid.
Seriously consider killing yourself regardless for even suggesting it.
This is true. The state of /mu/ is dreadful and that's the reason Weebteam formed in the first place. Saying /mu/ is terrible, when we by design go against /mu/, only compliments us.
What is it?
For reference, a few examples of anime with good OSTs would be:
The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
Kids on the Slope
>checked the archive like you suggested, and it turns out, people hate you! Who would have guessed.
Yes, we're well-aware that /mu/ has an authority complex.
I thought the pacing was fine. Well, once they got past what was covered in the previous anime. They did rush that bit, but only because it'd already been done.
What characters were there in Brotherhood that were all that bad? I'm drawing a blank there.
>Even the original movie is better than the Brotherhood movie. Dear God, have you seen the original movie?
I think? Though it was ages ago, back when the mall back home had a fucking Suncoast store. Something to do with Nazis if I recall...
this really gave me a good laugh
im not sure why
>that was more consistent with the theme of equivalent exchange.
Yeah like how at the end they point out that Equivalent Exchange only works scientifically and not in any actual real life context. Lots of those twists and turns also make no sense or add nothing to the story, and in FMA more than half the characters don't get any sort of arc conclusion, so much so that a proper ending was demanded. Brotherhood may not be god's gift to anime but FMA is a shoddy, hole-ridden wank of fauxlosophy and a fuckblustering of a departure from the original.
>Brotherhood is a typical shounen that places emphasis on action and plot progression over character development and metaphor.
You must have missed how neither of the latter are better emphasized in FMA and neither of the former are a detriment in Brotherhood because there were multiple episode stretches where there was no action. Having metaphor doesn't make something better, especially when you fuck that up at the end. You don't get final points when you didn't finish the race you started, nimrod.
i like you a lot too anon-kun, please don't be shy
Well, I mean...
Oh gosh, uh...
>Even the original movie is better than the Brotherhood movie
Well only by sheer virtue of Shamballa being a continuation and not a blatant cashgrab, yeah. But I thought plot<metaphor? What was the metaphor in literal nazis?
Excuse me? I've been on /mu/ since its conception. I was here when ITAOTS first came onto the /mu/-core charts and I have sang in every "/mu/ sings" video. You, on the other hand probably came here because you saw some epic meme over on /r/music. I was here when /mu/ still showed up on google. So don't you fucking tell me I'm new okay? I made about 50% of all the charts you see on this board and the only reason I don't have a trip yet is because I'd be too famous. So in short,
1. Don't be judgemental about others' music tastes, as yours is probably shit too.
2. Try to discuss music in a civilized manner without being a prick to others.
3. Don't assume people are new.
4. Leave this board.
It doesn't matter what the faceless anon thinks. The true opinions that matter are in agreement that weebteam saved /mu/.
1. Rushing anything is unacceptable as a work on it's own. What if I wanted to watch Brotherhood without seeing the original first? It would detract from the experience.
2. Everyone had much more forced emotions towards the end of the series. I could not connect with any of them.
3. Don't even worry about it. Both those movies were godawful, but the original movie at least kept with the rules the universe set up.
See the OP.
Wow, that's just fucking rude.
It's like...it's just so fucking stupid my mind can't actually process it so instead of getting irritated and buttflustered, I just laugh.
Is this what happens when you get so mad you go full circle back to blissfully calm?
You say what. About Chaika? Chaika, graduated top of class. Chaika Seals. Involved, lots of raids. Secret raids! Hero-fighting! Over 300 exploded breads, confirmed! Chaika, trained in eyebrow warfare. Top wizard. Entire Chaika armed foces! You, nothing but another bread. Chaika, cook you out. Precision, never seen before! Mark Chaika's words. You, get away? Think you can? Say stuff over Internet. Think wrong! Secret saboteur network, contacting! Right now! Your house, being traced. Storm, coming! Brace! Storm, wipe out you! You, little. You, pathetic. You, dead. Kid! Chaika, anywhere! Everywhere! Can drive car, over 700 ways! Just with Chaika hands! Chaika, trained in unarmed cuteness. Also, access to entire coffin! All of Chaika's dad, parts. Chaika, use. Full extent! You, miserable! Wipe bum off face of continent! You, should have known. Unholy retribution! Clever comment, bring down. On you. Held your tongue, should have. But, couldn't. Didn't. Pay price. Baka. Chaika, super angry! All over you! You, drown in hugs! Kid. Smothered.
I can pretend to be a girl while we hang together if you want, maybe that would make you less uncomfortable?
I can also do naughty girl things to you
Honestly ? AOTY all the way. Disappointing ? At first, yes. Just keep listening, keep repeating, find those lonely/sad/confused moments and it WILL hit you, hard. Yes, 180db_ is pretty simple, yes, but I can crush skulls to that. That's the point of it. Every track on this album has a meaning. Truly? Richard doesn't owe you anything. He's already released so many albums and ep's it would blow your mind. This is, just like all of his works, different, new, fresh, futuristic, genius, emotional and astounding. Fuck the fanbass, I know. Fuck the haters, too, those are simply arrogant, as much as the childish fan base. But Richard ? Richard will forever be above you all. Including me.
It's so stupid I can't even get mad at it, i'm choking
>What if I wanted to watch Brotherhood without seeing the original first? It would detract from the experience.
I suppose that's true, you're free to think that. I'd probably recommend anyone interested in Brotherhood to watch FMA first though, despite the overlap.
>Everyone had much more forced emotions towards the end of the series. I could not connect with any of them.
I dunno, I guess? I mean I suppose that stuff with Greed and Ling was a bit out there, but whatever, I just sorta let it happen.
A-are you sure? I don't want to mess things up by rushing things...
This....This is the sign of a true plebeian. He wallows in his willful ignorance and thinks it gives him the right to challenge his superiors.
worst post ever made
We've explained this already (though we shouldn't have had to).
It's a shame you have a crush on me, as you seem to have extremely low standards.
I'm not sure what that is, but my music taste is extensive enough for me to say I probably do.
I doubt you've listened to three albums on the chart I posted.
Why would I frequent a board of such poor quality?
>Yeah like how at the end they point out that Equivalent Exchange only works scientifically and not in any actual real life context.
This was a red herring. If you looked closely you'd see that it actually did work in a figurative sense.
>Lots of those twists and turns also make no sense
>or add nothing to the story
They were the story.
>more than half the characters don't get any sort of arc conclusion
They didn't need to.
The second half of your post demonstrates that you have trouble thinking deeply, though, so I should probably stop.
I already have.
Thank you. Feel free to repost the chart at your leisure.
This chart isn't based on opinion.
Shamballa was not included in our chart for a reason.
This is a good band.
Now this is hilarious.
It's like watching two severally handicapped people fight, while breaking your shit in the process.
You want to get mad considering your belongings are being broken...but holy shit.
>I'm not sure what that is, but my music taste is extensive enough for me to say I probably do.
I haven't laughed this hard in years
fuck off daiz
Anon-kun it's time to choose between me and >>117385791 , I will love you forever, that other anon though
seems like a total slut to me.
>1. Don't be judgemental about others' music tastes, as yours is probably shit too.
Just apply this to everything. Taste is all opinion. Quality is also all opinion. Everything on the chart is shit to someone and amazing to someone else. It really doesn't matter what people like and there's no reason to try to force them to like what you like.
