time changes, most wizards are too weary from working or being long time neets and full time shitposters that they stop giving a fuck about chinese cartoons or attaching to their posts silly anime pictures. Just imagine being a 30 year old with thousands of hours spent on imageboards and still posting along depictions of crappy smiling lolis that others use to masquerade their emotions or feelings, that's just depressing. I'd say that an imageboard where people post anime pictures or they promote the use of them is not very inviting to real wizards. Moreover if we consider the meme culture that surrounds them, which is, like it or not, pretty normalfaggish.

That's just your personal experience that you project onto others. There are wizards of all ages and backgrounds who like and dislike anime. Not barging into a thread to start an argument and allowing threads to produce good quality discussion for those interested in its topics is how you maintain a good site, but then I am also guilty of shitposting in threads I don't like. The idea of an imageboard only being filled with things you like and approve is stupid anyway. Just let this site turns into 4chan 2.0 already.

Anime is now mainstream. Lots of imageboard dwellers now hate it because they're no longer unique and special.
If you were never into anime in the first place, you're bound to feel hatred for it after seeing nothing but anime pics as you scroll down.
Then there's the board culture. Even if japanese animation is indifferent to them, for some, 2D succubi is almost as bad as 3D RL.

imo Wiz-chan and a few others are still quite healthy with regards to anime subculture and memetics. I guess due to the population I mentioned in my first sentence now (mostly) gone from those places.

 No.226656

As people get older they see a decline in things they used to like. Anime fans used to be the weirdo outcasts who found cool niche animations to watch from Japan. Now they're watching 10 hours of anime a week that's all slice of life, jerking off to cartoon characters and constantly shoving it in everyone's faces. As people age out of anime as inherently childish commercial medium they are unable to remain in their digital neighbourhoods without kids shitting up the place with it. So instead of "Oh that's the thing I used to like" it's "oh look another faggot posting anime succubi for attention".

I would also argue that anime fans are by their nature very shallow people with little to add to a conversation or worth while input. They're just blind consumers who think they're superior for watching a foreign cartoon series.

I've grown to hate anime because they're the modern version of the furry or brony. They think they're entitled to spam it every where and any one who doesn't like it should leave. Even if the person they're telling to leave has been there longer than they have, often two or three times longer. I could go into a whole bunch of other reasons but that basically sums it up. I outgrew anime and yet I'm constantly having it shoved down my throat.

Shove your “Chan culture” up your smelly ass. I even like anime, but I hate most people who post about it cause they smell like they come straight from /r9k/ 90% of the time.

Pretty much this. Maybe it would be inviting 10 years ago or so, but not so much today. Different times and different people. I still like and watch anime as much as I've always done, it's the modern community, meme culture and retards surrounding it now that's obnoxious and I can't stand. But really it depends on who and where, it's fine on here for example, but I mostly avoid the community otherwise.

I don't dislike anime per se. I do dislike anime posters on imageboards because all they do is drool over depictions of females, which is barely better than obsessing over real females, "waifu this, waifu that". Anime posters are no different than the posters in this picture in my opinion. Just to clarify one last time, there is nothing wrong with watching anime, but posting your "waifu" whenever possible is.

Standards are subjective. But I think that when one starts watching anime they will start with the more mainstream ones naturally, then if they are truly that way inclined they will branch off to more genres and SoL type anime or they will get bored of it because they were not that way inclined and it was just a phase to them and/or they already saw most the mainstream stuff. That's often when people say that grew up or that modern anime is bad, it's not anime that changed but they were never really that way inclined to begin with, they were just normal people that found a novel hobby and got bored of it after a while.

Maybe it's my age talking but I just can't watch anime anymore. It takes 5x time to watch anime than to read the manga it was based on. I like reading a lot more than just sitting in front of a screen anyways. The only thing anime does for me that manga doesn't is the music. A nice OST is always better than dead silence of reading a manga.

In my experience 10 years ago the core fanbase for anime I watched were dudes who loved old giant robot series. They built model kits and made cool artwork because they loved the classics. Now the modern mecha "fan" is basically a pedo who wants to see little succubi dressed up in robot parts because they're lonely and they just want a succubus like the fake ones they see in anime. Now that sort of weird fetishism is being pushed into model kits because they can hit more demographics.

And even the Japanese model kit community got fucked by the recent Gundam series being about it. It brought in an immense amount of new people with low standards. Low standards which the TV Series themselves get misused to justify. So as an older anime fan and modeling autist I lost 2 things I enjoyed in 1 because modern anime fans are fucking retards watching stuff on netflix and crunchy roll.

And because I feel like starting a bit of a shit flinging contest. As I woke up to the state of the world and seeing my culture devalued I saw Japan as a dangerous part of that. Instead of local culture being promoted (and no I don't mean hollywood shit), I see Japanese culture being promoted to the youth. I find it sad that so called white nationalists worship Japan unironically. I don't care which country it is or which ethnic group, if it's being promoted by another ethnic group claiming to be trying to preserve it's self something is terribly wrong there. You can't save European culture with anime.

>>226719
I was browsing /tg/ and there was a guide to writing for a setting. On the male side you had interesting well done art, some nice buildings as examples and then anime succubi for the succubi. If you're writing a modern western setting why the fuck would your examples be weeaboo shit instead of keeping all your example pictures within the style you will be using?

 No.226774

>>226759
Your post is stupid because all media clearly changes through different eras. Anime went through a huge mecha boom in the late 70s to mid 90s. Now Mecha series are more expensive to produce than slice of life series and it's easier producing generic figurines of succubi than complex original mecha designs. So you can see a very clear shift in the direction of the anime industry over the last 30 years. And even inside it's own genre CGI has completely butchered many other wise watchable series. anime CGI looks terrible

I will say Gundam Narrative was one of my favourite Gundam things ever, it's not to say there isn't some good mecha stuff out there, but it's mostly 1 OAV a year and that can be hit or miss like Unicorn and Origin was

There is more anime in general being made than ever before, of course they will follow trends and the trend right now is anime g1rls.

Openly proclaiming a dislike of anime and 2D as a whole, or flaming a post for containing anime, should be a bannable offense and the very first rule added to any imageboard. In fact, I'd say that if you decide your site isn't going to be open to anime anymore, you should change the format from a futaba-based imageboard to something else. You don't have the right to create an japanese-style website that is anti-2D. No, i don't care that you think 2D succubi are comparable to 3DPD. If you think that, you should probably leave. The very definition of "wizard" comes from anime. If you want to seperate from that definition of wizard, then make a different site with a different term like adult MGTOW virgins or something. But don't even use the term wizard if you hate anime. Disparaging anime and other japanese 2D should be an offense on par with disparaging NEETs or hikkis. tl,dr; You do not belong on imageboards if you do not like anime. A futaba-based imageboard without anime is like a wizard without his virginity. Even the implication that such is possible should be punishable by hanging.

Actually, we didn't "go" anywhere. People like you just come here, shit up the place, and go so far as to whine when you see us on our own fucking website. Go away. Get out. You don't belong here, you never will. Rule number one of normalfags is that they hate anime and it's related hobbies. I seriously don't get why you faggots come here. The only REASON you see anime as obnoxious is because you see it as something that shouldn't be here, and when it gets posted you get angry because you don't want anime here. But that has nothing to do with the reality that anime is actually a core part of the site, second and ONLY second to being a male virgin. You have no right to hate seeing anime posted, any more than you would have a right to get mad when someone posts about food on a cooking website. People hate anime more and more?

The definition of normalfag doesn't change. If anything, it just means that the people trying to define the definition aren't the kinds of people who are worthy to do so anymore. See, no normalfag will ever be okay with anime that is centered around cute little succubi, or that is perverted from their point of view. Sure, they might watch entry level shounenshit, but when have they not? To me the reason normalfags are bad is because they whine about anime and how weird, or annoying, or stupid, or perverted, or pedophilic it is. That's why they're bad, it's always been why, because when they come into anime websites and start shitting on anime constantly and the people who watch it, they also try and change the site to their preferences.

I don't watch anime and actually do dislike it, but don't mind seeing it posted at all. I don't even notice. It's just a picture, obviously people here like anime.

However the claim that image-boards are "anime turf" is laughable to me. I've seen it several times now, some guy gets called a weeaboo and goes nuclear about how "anime invented image-boards, image-boards belong to weeaboos" yadayada.

The implication that not only 4chan, but futaba were made with anything but the inclusion and prioritization of anime is absurd. Moot created 4chan because he wanted a place to post hentai, and to talk about anime casually, without worrying about forum rules on discussion being srs bzns. Not only that, but the entire culture of 4chan and western imageboards as a whole stemmed outward from people either shitposting about anime, or using anime to discuss other topics. It was only until around 2010 that other things seriously entered the imageboard sphere of culture. Now maybe you'd say that the culture has shifted and imageboards aren't about anime anymore. Well, not everyone wanted that change and not everyone intends to go along with it. Me included. You can say whatever you want about what imageboards are supposed to be now, but saying they weren't originally for anime and the like is just blatant lying. Why, it wasn't even until 5 years ago that there was a serious shift in the culture as a whole and you started seeing certain boards here and there being openly hostile to anime. Like it or hate it, it belongs here and if you don't like it, you're free to go somewhere else. It's basically the equivalent of immigrating to the United States and demanding they repeal the second and first amendments because you find them annoying.

I would understand if it was a forum specifically for anime discussion, or if it was the board of a forum for snime discussion, but these are for the most part general discussion boards. There are specific websites and specific boards on this website and others which are dedicated to anime discussion. I'm not saying anime should not be allowed outside of those sites or boards, just that you can't act all mortified and mutinied when someone rips on your weeaboo shit just because imageboards are incidentally associated with anime, however strong that association may be.

9 days after Moot created /b/ "anime and random" he made /s/. So your claims for it to be weeaboos exclusive lasts less than 2 weeks from 4chans creation.

Imageboard demographics change as they get older. /pol/ is the dominate influence on image boards so non-white content is going to go down in status over white content. You also didn't have people constantly avatar fagging as you have today.

Furries were slightly better than this. Furries would at least try to stay on topic with their furry shit. If you joined a dreamcast thread you might see sonic fan art or a Tekken thread might have one of the characters drawn as a furry. They were obviously sexual and annoying but they weren't wildly off topic. Brony's did the same thing but it was all horses instead of random animals. Weeaboos on the other hand are worse than furries because no matter the topic they have to insert anime into it. They're constantly shoving their extremely sexual content into discussions it doesn't belong in. And that content is usually underage succubi (and anime faces in general are closer to baby faces than an adult face).

It's an essay all of it's own for how fucked up people's attraction to anime faces is but I think that about covers it. Furries were on topic fetishists, this is just off topic hyper sexual fetishing.

>They were obviously sexual and annoying but they weren't wildly off topic
there are some furries who only post sexualized anthropomorphic animals, there's furry images non sexualized, a surprising range of discussion, say how sci/fi and fantasy relate to anthros. furry was always somewhat connected to pornography, but its a real shame that what used to be a nerd interest got hijacked by sex obsessed, perverted normalfags. maybe that's the fate of any nerdish medium

There are but they were the exception back then. Weeaboos only ever post their sexual interest. It's not like they're spamming YuGiOh monsters or Beyblades is it?

Any medium that tolerates sexual deviants will come to be run by them. They drive off everyone who doesn't want to be around them so nothing else is left.

Or I can stay here and bully every last weeaboo fag I see until they leave. It's an anonymous image board fag, you can't stop me shitting up every anime post made and pushing the board culture to hate weeaboos. And I'll do it just to spite people like you
Yeah, figures you'd be an outsider piece of shit trying to uproot a culture you don't like for being degenerate and perverted or whatever. Call me a pedo all you want, but that's not an insult to us you dummy. You think we hide that? You dumb nigger. We LAUGH at people who come places like this and then start crying about loli or fanservice or hentai or whatever. If we were just your regular suppressed degenerates, you might have stood a chance. But you'll never defeat someone so pure-heartedly and unashamedly degenerate as a 2D patrician wizard. As long as two "weeaboos" exist, we will post here and discuss anime and you can never stop us.

Yeah it goes for anything, especially anything deemed nerdy. Even the furry shit that always was about fetishising, as much as I dislike them I still found them a better community before.
Within any hobby or franchise you always get the sex crazed retards, attention seeking and sex obsessed succubi and trans "succubi", and the subversive feminist succubi. And pic related which to be honest are the least obnoxious of these normals.

"Weeaboos" makes me think of narutards and others of old, which actually had some interest in the medium. The "ironic weeb" normalfags you see today who only cares about sex and lewd^^ has a shallow if non-existent interest and will hopefully move on to the next thing to ruin.

Anime has been mainstream for the better part of this decade. Personally I've gotten tired of seeing repetitive anime succubus faces all over the place. It's tacky. Anime is boring.

I think a lot of people are annoyed with the smug anime shitpost trend that's been going on for years and the ironic weeb culture that's come about with all the "who's your favorite waifu xD" material on youtube and other social media sites. There are also a few people who specifically get butthurt at modern anime or "moeshit", some of them manime fanboys or retro anime fans. Specific to this site, there are a lot of wizards who obsess about how many other people are doing what they're doing, because they're so deep into the "truwiz" religion that they worry about whether something they enjoy is also something normalfags enjoy - to the point where I've seen some people outright ask for obscure hobby recommendations.
And then there are a few who just don't like seeing anything sexual.

I'm not as into anime as I used to be and some of the ironic weeb types or people talking about how they want to do sexual things with X character are kind of annoying, but at the same time it seems silly to get upset over images on an imageboard or go on crusades against a certain medium because it makes you butthurt. As some of the posts in this thread illustrate a lot of these people have their heads really far up their own asses.

Yo listen up, here's the story
About a little guy that lives in a blue world, And all day and all night and everything he sees is just blue
Like him, inside and outside
Blue his house with a blue little window
And a blue Corvette, and everything is blue for him
And himself and everybody around
'Cause he ain't got nobody to listen.

I barely sue any other board here than /jp/ and /hob/ so I haven't seen that much anime hate, but I guess that it has to do with anime suddenly becoming super mainstream and maybe some wizards getting tired of it. I still think they probably are a loud minority and most people here are just ok with it.
I personally have been watching anime for 10+ years and still haven't got tired of it, but I mostly avoid the community aside from posting here and a few other smaller imageboards.

I used to be very into anime, but recently I think both the community and the shows doubled down and are increasingly more stupid and centred around their female leads, tropes and cliches. The very obnoxious cliches such as lesbianism.

I feel the cuteposting/larping shit got out of hand. Your average weeb really is a sorry sight - prison gay, cumbrain, repeating the same old stale memes "handholding so lewd OwO". It makes me feel dirty to watch shows that cater to those people, and they ignore anything else.

>I use to like ice cream but now I don't anymore because other people who like ice cream are idiots

Someone explain to me how does that work. I particularly can't give a shit about a bunch of other nobodies who like the same things I like. They have no impact whatsoever on how I feel about things I like or dislike. I hear this also about games. If you're going to quit everything you like because some other what's his face likes it too and is obnoxious about it you're fucked.

Well if you put it this way then yeah, but I feel like the 'ice cream' flavours have gotten much worse and since the change for the worse people are more vocal about liking ice cream.

To take your analogy and make it a little more fitting, imagine you like icecream, but at first hardly anyone else does. The few people you talk to who also like it basically make it themselves cause it's hard to get where you live, and because of this the only people who like icecream really like it and know everything there is to know about it. Then what's happening today is that every restaurant you go to serves ice cream now. Even your local wafflehouse serves it and it's all anyone orders. And the people who eat it now never make their own, they just order whatever's popular, and it's often some terrible flavor you think is gross. On top of that everyone is a messy eater, they don't eat at home in a bowl, everyone is eating it in a cone and getting everything sticky and leaving wrappers everywhere. And everywhere you go the smell of icecream just hangs in the air, even when you go the wafflehouse to get waffles, it smells like icecream.

Could you not imagine how this can make one sick of ice cream? Even if that person still enjoys having a bowl of ice cream at home, they now have to deal with it everywhere they go, and it's not really the same ice cream they used to like.

Sorry anon, I doubt you're in your mid 50s and know Japanese. Because that's the only way you were ever around and able to enjoy ice cream back when hardly anyone else did. My advice to you is stop going to restaurants and stop caring about what flavor people are ordering, you're not paying for their cones.

>>227321
>you don't want to be associated with these people.
You're absolutely right. I never talk about it, ever. I think in fact I've never said the word anime outloud in my life. If ever you were in a position where you had to say it outloud, I say you fucked up somewhere down the line.

It's easy, do it like me, stay home and enjoy your damn ice cream.

The key phrase I used is "where you live". Anime was always popular in japan, though to an extent otakus are still largely hated/mocked. And I still stay home and enjoy my ice cream plenty. But the point of this thread isn't whether you like it or not, it's about the people who post it. Wizchan is a public forum, by going here you aren't staying home, and you have to deal with other posters. I'm not necessarily sick of anime, I'm sick of the people who currently call themselves weebs.

Ice cream companies keep substituting ingredients for cheaper and cheaper ones until now it's all artificial sugar with a different flavour and texture. And that diner you always used to enjoy going to is now full of smelly guys who shove their ice cream under your nose when you're trying to eat your meal. Doesn't matter what you're eating they want you to put ice cream on it or tell you about ice cream.

Food and entertainment aren't the same thing but you get the idea.

ive watched around 90 animes. and i can say with an educated opinions now that it is utter shit. and i consider you retarded if you get any enjoyment out of most/any anime made after the 1990's. early anime was fine and there is some heart and soul there, but anything in the 2000's is purely for retarded consumer minds and very small children.
all the anime i consumed made me have a deep loathing for the immature japanese comedy. i can't stand humor from japan. even in seinen series, the "jokes" are dumber than stuff american 4th graders would find funny. farts and poop and FUNNY FACES.
the stuff just makes me sick now.

even the good 80's anime is usually misunderstood and mischaracterized by modern anime fans. like Fist of the North Star is talked about like as if it's a comedy anime now and jojo fans make memes out of it. but it's actually always been a very serious and dramatic series with a lot of things happening narratively. it was never a joke. so when i see people posting 80's anime, i assume they're making fun of it and too retarded to understand it and i hate them too.
