I thought I'd let the dust settle before announcing the Official and Objective 2014 /a/ AOTS awards, so here you go.
Best show of 2014 hands down.
I didn't expect a short to be the CGDCT anime of the year, but I guess a two cour half length show is essentially a one cour CGDCT AOTY, and that obviously makes it AOTY because everyone knows nothing is better than cute motherfucking girls, so yeah. You're right.
look at all that shit taste
Only right one there is Mikakunin, stop being a faggot.
Ignorant /v/ermin detected, probably watches trash like Naruto and JoJo.
There is something about seeing them trying their best only to get stricken down by altitude sickness or seeing a lonely girl celebrating her birthday alone.
My feet hurts, I am thirsty, I am running out of breath, I wish I can just go home etcetc.
It hits too close to home.
>people think they either have to choose from anime like Yuyushiki, Hidamari Sketch and Yama no Susume, or things like Tatami Galaxy, Ping Pong and other serious anime
>they can't enjoy both
This thread is bait, but thats not stooping me from posting my list.
holy shit, great taste. someone likes comfy.
>mfw plebs haven't discovered that the ultimate anime pleasure in life is comfy anime right before bed
>People who don't like otaku hiki pandering shit are the fedoras
In retrospect, 2013 was a much better year.
>I watch creepy otaku shit
>I am somehow not a fedora
>Thinking anyone uses fedoras seriously anymore.
That's great and all, and imma let you finish, but this image is the greatest smug Chinese cartoon girl of all time.
>watch comfy show
>go to bed and have a dream about the show
Truly the best feeling.
Poor thing, go watch Mikakunin right now, it's good for your soul.
wait, there are people who have a negative opinion on Locodol? I thought it was either you liked it or you didn't know/didn't pay attention to it
>Winter had shitty characters
>Spring had shitty character designs
>Summer has an argument
>Fall has an argument
I don't know if either of them were the best of their season, but two out of four good shows is way better than OP's image.
>still misusing the fedora meme
Fedoracore is actually pretty well defined. It's a general term used to describe one of three different types of movie.
The first type is films that are popular among adolescent teens to young males who perceive themselves to be on the fringes of society. A common theme in these movies is alienation, nihilism and chaotic/glorified violence. Simply put, you could say that they are united by their nihilism. Characters like the Joker, Donnie Darko, Patrick Bateman and even Travis Bickle are relatable or ideal characters in the minds of these people.
Examples: Drive, Kick-Ass, Dark Knight, Scott Pilgrim
The second type is pseudo-intellectual and pretentious bullshit that pretends it's much more complicated than it actually is. These movies are designed to be actually really fucking simple, but still just complicated enough (or have a complicated enough twist) to make plebs feel clever when they watch it.
Examples: Inception, Fight Club, Idiocracy, Cabin In The Wood, Matrix
The third type is high-budget modern schlock. Stuff that's 'cool', 'awesome' or 'manly' on the most superficial and juvenile level. Shit that falls under the same category as "SHARKS WITH LAZERS!" or "MUSTACHED JETPACK FIGHTS!". These movies tend to be gory or comedic or bloated, or all three.
Examples: Guardians of the Galaxy, The Wolf of Wall Street, 300, Pacific Rim
All three types of films tend to be enjoyed and overhyped by fedora-wearing gentlemen, usually those who also frequent the website known as reddit.
"Creepy otaku shit" has nothing to do with the fedora.
fite me ill rek u m8
It is the stereotypical negative opinion claimed by the people spouting anime is ruined and need saving crowd.
I doubt they even watch it. It is their loss. It is not like these newfag city boys will ever appreciate how it is like living in a backwater small town.
