Why does /a/ dislike ping pong the animation? I realize the art style makes it difficult to get into but I thought the people here were not so superficial that they would disregard something because of how it looks.
>>122976380 Aside of looking like shit, what's so special about it? Nothing, the reason people like it is because it looks like shit and nothing more. >Ping Pong is a master piece, i'm so mature and more smart than any of you Basically, anyone that like Ping Pong think like that.
>but I thought the people here were not so superficial that they would disregard something because of how it looks.
If you're willing to just dismiss the art style and how shitty the actual animation is, there is no reason to be watching anime in the first place. You might as well just watch the 2002 film (which is just as good anyways if not better sans the fact that they made Kong Cantonese for no reason).
>>122976380 /a/ don't dislike it, there's lots of shitposters who loves to shitpost on it. Most of them speak from the prejudice that is a pretentious series because muh Yuasa/art, etc. and spend their good times arguing with the fanbase, like any other series in /a/
>>122976618 /a/ and people that don't typically watch that much anime (i.e. normalfags) will latch onto any anime that somehow sets itself apart from shows that are typically popular. Weird character designs, western style music or opening, non-japanese setting, heavy satire, seemingly mature or deep themes, etc.
Show such as Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop, Death Parade, Mushishit, Ping Pong, Sidonia all fall into these categories and get labeled as AOTS, masterpieces, or other titles they (for the majority) don't actually deserve.
This mainly stems from some close-minded thinking that a show having the qualities of traditionally popular shows such as cute character designs, SoL elements, etc must automatically be bad and are often dismissed before even being given a chance. These are among the same people that refuse to watch anything that they could label "moe-shit". They don't actually consider the positive or negative qualities of a show, but if it belongs to the former category and gives them anything they can use to assume the high-ground in taste, they'll eat it up.
Ping Pong is really nothing exceptional as far as sports manga goes other than the fact that it's quite shorter than most even with how long the show dragged on certain elements. Any good qualities it might have actually had are completely undermined by the horrendous animation and art style.
The artstyle and animation are shit, it's like it was drawn by Koreans. Also, it's a sports manga, of course some will hate it. It's not even about an interesting sport like football, dodgeball or hockey.
>>122976984 I like well done high school SoL though. Just like I like well done art. It all depends on the execution. Also you have that backwards. Normal fags and casual fags will prefer the standard simplistic shit that is popped out. Ping pong is hardly popular anon. Same with evangelion. Being different does not make you popular. Shit like sword art online is immensely popular with normies because it's the same simplistic slice of life/shounen shit. Thats why I thought if anyone would like ping pong, it would be on /a/.
>>122977092 But thats the thing it's not even about the sport. I hate sports anime but I loved this. If you actually sit down and watch 11 episodes you will come to realize how it's more like tatami galaxy than anything else.
>>122976984 > Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop, Death Parade, Mushishit, Ping Pong, Sidonia There are at least two distinct fan groups there, though (three if you count whichever type of people think Sidonia is a masterpiece, as I haven't met any of them).
>>122976380 There is no consensus on this board. Just a bunch of fat, disgusting, japanophile neckbeards who want no creativity, just conformity from their cookie cutter pop culture consumption product of choice.
Direction is good. Story is good. Music is good. I actually like the chara design. What I dont like is the way Yuasa used skew perspective and deformed proportion. It is like the human and objects are made by liquid. It looks like shit.
>>122977493 3x3 is filled with cancerous posts. You wouldn't actually want to go near them and take their opinions seriously. 1 look at IP count and you would realize how they are actually the vocal minority.
People shitpost about things that are popular/well-liked because it's a lot easier to rile people up that way. Therefore, inevitably, things that people like and consider quality get bashed into oblivion while things that people dislike/like for entertainment value (e.g. Guilty Crown/VVV effect) are comparatively speaking left alone.
That's not to imply that everyone actually loves it or anything; /a/ is not a hivemind also runs the other way. It's just that if you based your opinion on any show from the first ten posts in a thread about it, you'd have some seriously bizarre opinions.
1. When it comes down to it, /a/ is just as shallow as any other anime site like MAL. 2. /a/ doesn't like anime for the most part. Someone will bitch at me for "using /v/ memes", but the attitude has been here for years. Many see it as a purely comfy/healing medium, and anything outside of those categoried is tryhard or pretentious.
>>122976984 That might be true in some cases, but it's pretty disingenuous to imply that the only reason said different shows are well-liked on /a/ is because of people trying to avoid "traditionally popular" shows and elements. That might be more believable if shows like YrYr, ARIA, and Sora no Woto didn't still have fairly rabid followings on /a/ years after the fact. That's not even going into idol territory.
