Is there an anime /a/ can universally agree is good? Or at least by majority say that it has its merits?
Closest thing I can think of is Casshern Sins
I rarely see anyone say it's shit and more often people have positive opinions of the show.
Why? I thought it had great animation, timeless OST, meaningful episodes
It's a pretty strange show. Some really good moments mixed with empty episodes full of nothing but meaningless and boring angst.
They've also started recycling animations near the end. I remember at least 3 moments when Casshern was stabbed by 3 robots simultaneously with identical animation.
Kaiba went out in the same year and overshadowed it really hard.
Kaiba had only 6 good episodes, which were all from the first half. The second half was mediocre at best.
Casshern still had a ton of episodes that stood firm on their own, and helped developed Cassherns character too. Both of them had phenomenal direction but I liked Casshern's art design better.
>Akira Ishida plays two characters
I can't take this anymore.
Even in second half Kaiba had incredible moments like that chip flying down in lava by accident. Casshern was nowhere near this level of emotional impact on any point of the show.
>Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood
>Legend of the Galactic Heroes
>Hajime no Ippo
more boring shit
proven wrong, also get some fucking taste m8.
>that chip flying down in lava by accident
Ok fuck I remember how hard that triggered my autism so I'll give you that.
I teared a number of times during Casshern Sins, there were so many well done episodes. I have to say Kaiba hit me really hard during the first half though.
You have no idea what you're saying.
I enjoy how conservatively music is used in the series. The only blunder so far is in episode 11 when the same heroic song plays immediately before and after the commercial break.
We're not talking about masterpieces here. Just "good". like a 7/10, around that area. If you want to talk about anime that are generally agreed to be "good" then you gotta go with entry level shows because at least everyone has seen those.
The only complaints I see with any of those are "Usagi Drop" (just for the association with the manga and what happens after the timeskip). I don't even know what Tatami Galaxy is. And as OP said, I have never seen anyone say they hated Casshern Sins.
Seirei no Moribito maybe, then again, the threads for it are non-existent,
runner ups maybe like Shigurui idk
its hard to say when the board is full /a/nons that throw around buzzwords and cant into the wiki
And ofc Ghibli productions
nice rec thread btw :^)
Eva. People will argue about it's worth for literal eons to come, but I'm pretty sure most people would agree it has its merits.
Only one I can think of that I've never personally seen anyone shit on is Zetsubou Sensei. Maybe Jinrui.
All my other examples have been shit on once or twice (Penguindrum, Uchouten Kozaku, Kyousou Giga, Ping Pong, Kino no Tabi)
I still don't know if everyone here just despises Bebop and F/Z legitimately or if this is just some next level memeing
>the threads for it are non-existent
That's pretty much the problem with this since most shows that don't get a lot of hate flow under the radar and as a result not many people have watched. So saying stuff like Noein gets no hate on /a/ is misleading.
It's more interesting to point out the series that are very popular but get the least amount of hate despite their popularity. So something like GiTS would fit I think.
Yeah, it usually just boils down to preference, but among something more popular I'd agree that GiTS definitely fits the ticket
Second season is unreasonably dragged out, people talk shit on kaiji threads almost as much as GTO
