What anime/manga are you too embarrassed to admit you enjoyed?
This. Only a trusted few know my power level
You are aware that the acceptance of anime varies from country to country, right? It is normal to like it in France and Italy for example (depending on the kind though). Not my fault you Amerilard scum are xenophobic towards anything that isn't American.
And my name is Santa Claus.
Why would you have shame for something that's actually good?
It's honestly funny as fuck and I really like it, but the goddamn obnoxious fujoshi fanbase has tarnished its name and makes you into a laughing stock whenever you mention that you like it.
On /a/? None.
In the unlikely event that I'd talk to someone about animes I've seen outside of the internet I'd probably not mention some really ecchi stuff and ones with utterly stupid plots.
Astarotte no Omocha is a good example.
So like..Are we just gonna have a thread thats shit talking tokyo ghoul everyday or...
It's the price of popularity. Wait till the onepunch anime airs.
Hetalia's pretty fucking hilarious and its author is probably one of the chillest dudes (and probably high most of the time).
I like how he directly interacts with his fans and takes requests.
Face it, creepy japanese cartoons will NEVER be seen as an acceptable hobby.
It's okay to enjoy them, but if you mention that shit in public then you're beyond saving.
The healthy animes featuring healthy girls never get much love.
>but if you mention that shit in public then you're beyond saving
>giving a flying a fuck about what society thinks
>wanting to fit in
Literally kill yourself already you insecure dumbfuck. No, I don't go shouting about what I enjoy, be it anime or manga, but I'm not insecure about it either. I stopped caring about what others think of me in elementary school, I'm not going to start now 15 years later.
This is certainly bait because why would you come onto an anime image board to taunt people who watch anime if you yourself don't like it.
Even then if you do it's pretty pathetic to bully others for things that you secretly like.
Even if all of that is true the type of post is written with the obvious intent of luring an agitated response.
But who knows if you're actually this pathetic in real life seeing how you seem to proudly admit you come from France.
>giving a flying a fuck about what society thinks
>wanting to fit in
Don't you think it's about time to bin those Linkin Park albums anon?
More shitposters in OPM threads, less in TK threads. I can't wait for the anime to begin.
>I stopped caring about what others think of me in elementary school, I'm not going to start now 15 years later.
No, you've decided to stop at a mental level of an elementary schooler instead.
Where did I say that I didn't like anime faggot?
There's a difference between not liking anime and simply making sure that the faggots who publicly admit to watching it get what they deserve.
Outside of places like fairs and comic shops?
Hardly - better, never.
We're not in the '80s/'90s anymore.
You'd probably get a pass if you refer to a generic "comics", but that's it.
Anime being dead on TV and manga tumbling down on trite shounenshit absolute dominance doesn't help.
Not like i give a fuck anyway.
Feel free. I can do this all day or well, more like I should, because if I don't give you attention you might actually kill yourself from depression. I don't want your death in my hands anon.
Of course, it's your responsibility after all, as an adult and a contributing member of society. You must teach the ignorant masses of how to behave, how to follow your bright example. Lead the way! Make a bright future for all of us, by improving or "fixing" shitty people like me.
Truly a modern day Jesus!
I'm glad that you finally understood.
I can't speak for france, but italy isn't like that.
When i was at the jym two muscular men were getting angry because another guy DIDN'T know the opening of tiger man or rocky joe (especially the last one).
My cousin the biggest normalfag, hunter and catholic family man married with a woman that singed to me the opening of hokuto no ken (for no good reason too) and many other anime, and he love lupin.
Animefags have girlfriends and pussy, in general isn't an issue, the amount of sluts is insane, not fucking is more of a decision than a condition.
this fucking post
my stomach hurts
Personally it looks different to me, anime and manga are strong as in the 90's BUT illegally.
And unless you are the biggest faggot on earth nobody would shit on you like most people would in the USA.
I am also from France I just don't talk to anyone about it apart if I just mention something from it in a conversation with a friend of mine who also watches anime. I only responded to him because I felt that he was being pathetic going out of his way to attack some anons on the internet and to try and make himself look like a big guy.
>not fucking is more of a decision than a condition.
They're literalling begging him! What a baller.
Everything is true, i was feeling a little embarrassed while earing her singing the hokuto no ken opening, but mostly because i never talk about my hobbies with people i hardly know.
The point is that's all old stuff from when Italy had a massive boner over anime in the '70s to '90s. Hardly anything became that known (and thus accepted) in the past 20 years or so.
Also my sides are in orbit thanks to the rest of your post.
>anime and manga are strong as in the 90's BUT illegally
But that's exactely the first simptom of a decline of anime/manga popularity and shrinking of the readers/watchers numbers.
Especially when you couple it with subpar internet in the whole country, which surely doesn't help with anime being dead on TV: at least US have things like CR or Funi for legal normalfags, here we're starting to get something streaming a couple of thing right now.
Also there's a widespread ignorance in English.
And a incurable shit taste.
Being up to date with things, watching/reading in anime/manga in english (which means more and faster things) or even just with subs/scans, and not being a battle shounen shiteater is a rarity.
Can we have a single fucking threads that doesn't turn into normalfags blogging garbage?
Seriously /a/ is getting worse than /v/.
That feeling when you know it's a shitty fanservice/ wish fulfillment anime, but you can't stop yourself from watching anyway...
Gov is laying down plans for a nation-wide internet upgrade, but that's a decade away at best.
I didn't say that fiber or large bandwidth connections do not exists, just that the diffusion is absymal at best.
>Gov is laying down plans for a nation-wide internet upgrade, but that's a decade away at best.
I pointed that out, because they almost finished (in my region) and everything will be up in 2016.
I'm not ashamed of enjoy the Air Gear manga, but admit that was shit
Ogure's art is pretty great, and it honestly was ok in the first 100 chapters, after that it went full retard. I just think that they shouldn't let him write the story, or just have him talk about his phylosophical dilemmas and worries to a writer that has the capacity and literary knowledge and experience to write concepts like that.
Can't really remember any.
Thread was garbage with the first post.
Tokyo ghoul is great if you've read the entire manga and up to date. When I started reading it I thought it was just another edgefest, but it turned out surprisingly good. If he just watched the anime, I can understand where he's coming from.
I'm not ashamed of liking it but goddamn if it isn't annoying as fuck to get called a fujo anytime I say I like free
why can't I just be a faggot
