Is there anything that can stop this amazing show from winning Anime of the Year?
If it only had judgement episodes, it would have been great (though not as good as other anime this season).
However, they keep having meta episodes or comedy episodes that I personally didn't find very funny so its actually shaping up to be disappointment of the season.
khm a new season of gintam is coming in April. sorry dude
>Talking about an anime being AOTY when the year just started.
Nips were right, Death Parade is garbage and only attracts retards, thank god is selling like shit.
Death Parade is basically using Sharia law to judge souls. One judge with no jury is able to sentence harsh punishments with little fairness. We've already observed the wrong people being sent to 'Hell', just because of a mistake.
A gag anime can't beat the artistic integrity Death Parade has. Gintama doesn't have deep themes, just stupid jokes.
Japan actually likes the show a lot of you read 2ch. You should also tone down your racism.
Yes there are a great deal of things, Parasyte can out do DP without trying. Even A/Z is more enjoyable to watch at this point
It's more enjoyable to watch. I didn't say it had a better story, just watching it every week to see how much the writers can do an ass pull to fix a plot hole, or how more stupid characters can get makes it worth watching
2/10 troll, because there is a slight chance of you being retarded by your weebs impulses
>Gintama doesn't have deep themes, just stupid jokes.
>Is there anything that can stop this amazing show from winning Anime of the Year
Then why are there people here still pissing themselves for the next episode? Death Parade doesn't go that far and the people willing to watch another episode knows that nothing is going to happen anyway.
>Why the fuck, animation studio has any matter here?
If Death Parade was made by KyoAni or I.G. would you be more willing to watch it? Big name companies have an effect on the market. Educate yourself.
And how that matter? It's just retarded /a/ "meme" that Madhouse's shows don't sell. DN, NGNL, Mahouka were succesful. Galaxy Angel had 3 sequels, Oda Nobuna had decent sales.
okay, then why doesn't death parade have any hype? the only hype ive seen for this show was at the beginning where the United Slut Defense were looking for an explanation in the second ep.
Who decides if show is western pandering? Nips or autistic faggots on boards for basement dwellers?
Term AOTY on /a/ is worth shit and only causes retarded shitposting. It shoul've been blacklisted like "shota" and cause thread to autosage.
Why does hype matter? Mushishi Zoku threads were mostly dead, does it make show bad?
If you watch everything you say you watch then you would know Madhouse is declining in popularity.
Sunrise has always taken the lead and probably stay that way for a couple more years. See >>121515147
It's to straight forward for japan, what they should have done is not explain shit, make the bartender a teenager dealing with overblown emotions about judging the way people lived despite never having lived himself, you could make it so he gets emotionally attached to people he knows will disappear from him life in a few hours. It's always vague and emotional shit that wins awards.
>Sunrise has always taken the lead and probably stay that way for a couple more years.
Not even studio matters these days without marketing like Sonyjews from Aniplex.
hype is what makes people more inclined to watch something. unlike you, who probably sticks around until the end, other people have wavering interest levels similar to a rat with adhd. most people wouldnt want to spend time or money (if you live in nip land) to watch something that isnt worthwhile
basic economics 101 yo
I love mech and scifi in general, I only go a few episodes into A/Z I really did like the idea of somewhat realistic mechs beating the crap out of beam sword wielding tossers but it still managed to make me lose interest. DP just looks better and hard to predict.
NGNL didn't even mean double G's, Mahouka only pulled a simple 11k and that's pathetic since people were insisting it was going to be the next SAO, and DN is their only really successful show both Japan and America ever.
***PASTA FOR PEOPLE TOO STUPID TO UNDERSTAND THE SHOW***
The void/reincarnation system is based off of how the pair act once they reach Quindecim. Their life memories have no influence on this except to provide context. To wit:
Death Billiards: Going from the game, the young man was going to get voided, but the based old guy stepped in and asked to be voided in his place.
EP 1-2: The husband was pretty nasty during the game and there was some arguing, but the woman's outburst at the end gets her voided because Decim was too autistic to understand that she was faking. This is why Nona is so mad at him and appoints Onna as his assistant.
EP 3: Both of them are civil and kind during the game. Neither of them did anything wrong, thus they both get reincarnated.
EP 4: The woman loses it during the game and physically assaults the otaku. In addition to this, she's clearly ungrateful when her special attack involving her kids doesn't do enough damage. The otaku does defend himself by getting back up and trying to win, but whether or not you consider that wrong he was still the more civil and kinder during the game. Hence, the woman is voided. This is probably the single greatest evidence for the "only the game matters" system.
Ep 5: ---
Ep 6: We don't know what happens to Mayu and the idol yet, stop fucking asking. Given her place in the OP though, she's probably here to stay.
Also, for the last fucking time, the system has little to do with Buddism, if anything at all. The void is not Nirvana, it's explicitly stated in promotional material that it is a bad place.
Y'all niggers be judging this show but it only half over how the Fuck can you know if it'll be an AOTS? The next 6 eps could be fucking mind blowing or utter shit. Or maybe dog days will make a comeback. Or maybe kancolle will develop a fan base that's not retarted. I don't know yet anything could happen since THE SEASON ISNT FUCKING OVER YOU FUCKING DUMBASSES GOT ME MAD OVER FUCKING NOTHING
It makes me think if there are people that really believes that popularity on sites like MAL or Gaia matters for the show's sales.
I don't think that anyone would be that naive, but still.
>A gag anime can't beat the artistic integrity Death Parade has. Gintama doesn't have deep themes, just stupid jokes.
> doesn't have deep themes
I think you're in the wrong thread.
>You're like those people who said Captain Earth was going to be the best seller of the year and surpass Eva
>Gintama doesn't have deep themes, just stupid jokes
>This shit fucking taste
Gintama is one of if not the best comedy anime of all time you shit-tier faggot.
I didn't watch either of them. Death Parade is just amazing, even if it wasn't by Madhouse. Even though Madhouse is by far the best studio, there are still a few shows I didn't like that they made.
>Y'all niggers be judging this show but it only half over how the Fuck can you know if it'll be an AOTS? The next 6 eps could be fucking mind blowing or utter shit.
Your point being?
>Or maybe dog days will make a comeback.
Okay, your point just now got fucked up.
>Or maybe kancolle will develop a fan base that's not retarted.
But shirobako is also airing in 2015 OP.
Lol, what a noob.
Gintama is one of, if not the most overrated anime ever made based on the MyAnimeList ratings. It relies way too heavily on referencial humor, and the writing repeats itself to the point of sheer tedium.
Why does everything always have to be anime of the year/season with you guys? Can't you just enjoy stuff without overblowing it? This is why certain shows get shitposted in.
I noticed the top of the thread was nothing but provokative shitposting and reverse-trolling, are we talking about the show yet? I really liked the Twister episode, my acrophobia really kicked in at the end.
PLEASE BE A GINTI EPISODE.
Last episode was the fucking best.
Ginti was definitely a nice change of pace from Decim. Also his turf was comfy.
>mfw the girl dies by slipping in the fucking bathroom
>But it's shit and can't measure up to its original Death Billiards original.
This is the worst attempt at hipsterism I've seen in many moons. They're exactly the fucking same.
>Death Billiards: Going from the game, the young man was going to get voided, but the based old guy stepped in and asked to be voided in his place.
You're just making shit up.
It could be argued that the women with all the kids doesn't get voided.
That is what is nice about the series, that they keep it ambiguous (excluding episode 1). Knowing exactly what happens to the players is unimportant.
Death Parade is a 7/10 anime at best, 8/10 for the OP alone
I really like the character design, but every episode has been quite sluggish and don't really offer anything too special
Still the whole bar-aesthetic is cool in my books
Clavis the best
I called my mother after that episode
And I started really hating myself for all those suicidal thoughts over miniature shit
>all that greenscreen failure
>can't even get a real bowling ball, had to take a picture of a billiard ball for it and 2lazy to edit out the reflection
>not knowing what the masks on the doors mean
Guess I should put that in the pasta as well. Didn't think anoybody would be THAT dumb, though.
