Like many other people on /co/, I didn't know shit about this series other than what always gets recited: "It looks western." Tired of being the odd man out, I blew two hours and a half of my time to sit and watch it all. I thought it was rather entertaining actually.The claims that it looked like western animation were pretty justified. It didn't take me long to spot GIR, Johnny Bravo, Transformers, Powerpuff Girls, South Park, and other nods. The toilet and gross-out humor easily surpassed Ren and Stimpy (for better or for worse) by fucking miles, and the sexual humor is in large quantities, but not in the generic fan-service kind of way (Highschool of the Dead, Queen's Blade, etc).I was waiting for moe references, ^_^ faces, and other typical Anime bullshit so I could turn it off. I didn't see any. In fact, the show seemed to pick more on it's own subculture if anything (basement recluses with no life, collecting figures and hug-pillows, uncircumcised small dicks, etc).The English is also well used, especially in the songs (the OST is fantastic). It comes out mostly when the girls are swearing, and they do it a lot.All and all, I didn't want to give the show a chance, but I ended up really liking it. I do sort of regret not watching it earlier so I could have enjoyed the discussions when they were constant. Then again, most of it was on /a/ and civil discussion there tends to be rare, at best.Anyone else generally pleased with this show after seeing it?
>>Didn't take me long to spot TransformersYou had to be pretty bloody fucking blind to miss them in that last episode, bro.
>>21233284Haha, yeah the whole episode was Transformers, it was extremely entertaining. Here's hoping they do He-Man too, or Beavis & Butthead.
>>21233265>It looks westernNo it doesn't.>It didn't take me long to spot...visual references.>humorCan't say I saw any.>typical Anime bullshitEverywhere, from long convoluted speeches about nothing, to exploding nose hemorrhages, to hip-thrust poses 90% of the time, to effeminate suit-wearing men with ulterior motives. >The English is also well usedPANNTY STOCKING PANNY PANNY SOCKING OOH PANNY SOCKING OH PANNY SOCKINGFuck you OP, you have horrible taste and you can't even tell the difference between style and visual references.
Seems like there's a series every season that inches closer to some arcane equilibrium of western and eastern animation sensibilities.
I just do not like the look of it, so I do not bother to try and watch it.
I'm digging it too. I haven't been bursting out laughing at it for the most part, but it's been very entertaining. Episode 6 was the best so far for me.
>>21233357The pace in reaching that goal is really chugging, but it's getting there.

>>21233536I still only have a vague idea what happened in episode 5, and I watched it twice.
>>21233315Yeah, how exactly do you do Mike Judge with two lead vags?
>>21234164Well Panty and Stocking pulled off Optimus Prime and Megatron pretty good, so I don't think it's beyond them to at least heavily parody Beavis and Butthead.
>>21233315>>21234164>>21234332MY BODY.IS NOT GOING TO BE READY.
I loves me some P&S.Had a fangasm during episode 7.
The series was pretty fun but also pretty rough going for a while(hurr sex and feces) but after the fifth episode it's been nothing but pure gold.
no. I hated it. The humor was sophmoric and the sexual humor way too "in your face" to be any sort of witty, and Japanese people trying to sound American by saying random english swear words is not goodalso main characters whose defining traits are "I'm a sex fiend" and "I eat cake all day, lol" are not good characters.Basically the humor of this show can be summed up in one videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNjqjWblwT8(its just as funny)also, reported for not comics or cartoons
When i first started watching it, the gratuitous amount of sex and toilet humor was almost enough to turn me off from it But after the episode when they first meet Kneesocks and Scanty, I suddenly got really into it! The animation was awesome and it just got more interesting to me. So I'm definitely going to keep up with this. I don't have many Animes I keep up to date with and it'd be nice to change that since this looks really promising.
/a/nime is my life............. i am the BIG ANIME ASSLORD.......................................
>>21234904With the way the series is going so far, it's really hard, if not impossible to predict what kind of stuff to expect in future episodes. It's exciting to know that another popular western animation cameo could very well be right around the corner.
>>21234905>OP says he can't spot the anime bullshit>tell him where the anime bullshit is (everywhere)>"he mad"Sure is autistic anime fan around here.
I wonder how the creators and other Westaboos see Western cartoons and humor. Is it understandable to them or just as incomprehensible as Japanese humor is to us?
>>21235005i'm kind of hoping/fearing for a menstruation episode
>>21235051Where's alll the "anime bullshit", then? Seriously, a token shot here and there is the most this show's had. You're getting too agitated over nothing.
>>21235057I could see it happening. The next titles are:"... of the Dead""One Angry Ghost""Angels in Swimwear" and"Ghost: A Vision of Daten City"
>>21235054Apparently they see "LOL NOSEPICKING" and think it's humor. There's really nothing western about P&S at all.
>>21235054No idea. The Simpsons are better known as commercial mascots in Japan than for their show, though.http://www.japander.com/japander/simpson.htm
>>21235087>he can't see the anime bullshitThere is no hope for you, my friend.
>>21235137It was more nose-sex, really.
>>21235179Ow! My nasal hymen!
ReportI am glad you found an anime you enjoy, I still don't understand why you are making a long winded thread on /co/ about it. From what I have seen of the show it seems to use fan service as a crutch to make up for the barely there plot and one dimensional characters who consist of one joke a piece repeated to the point it isn't even funny anymore.
>>21235147>>21235051Oh please. You guys are just inclined to hate on anime no matter what. Not that I'm comparing the two, but if Akira came out today you'd yell "anime bullshit" all over that as well.
>>21235137It's more of stereotype of what Japanese think is "western". We should be insulted by their ignorance! Except there's no point in complaining, and it's better than the usual moe-blob shit that Japan pumps out, so we might as well ignore it.
>>21235230There you have it. That's how this show is in the western style.
COOL STORY ANIME TROLL
Can somebody explain what's so likable about the demon sisters? Their design is really lazy (generic background characters dyed red with added horns/tail) and they no personality whatsoever compared to the angels.
>>21235230Fan-service is a crutch here? I always thought it was more of a joke, considering half of the time when they're naked or undressing, it's in the crude normal style, and any time it's not, it clashes so much with the original style that it makes for a more "WHOA SHIT" moment.I mean, I'm sure people fap like the fist of the north star to some of this shit, but I don't really see fan service being the crutch here. I'll give you the low-brow humor, though that kinda seems to be the point, really. It's been doing much better in these last few episodes, though.Also, Stocking is really stealing the show lately.
>>21235054I think they do for the most part, although I'm sure a few jokes go over their heads here and there. I remember I didn't really appreciate Danger Mouse or Beetlejuice when I was young because they were aimed at British and Canadian audiences. The humor and jokes were there, but I didn't really fully "get it" and I tended to gravitate to other cartoons. Your mileage may vary from person to person.
>>21235288Their music.Scanty's knockers and Kneecaps' glasses.RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
>>21235298>Fan-service is a crutch here? I always thought it was more of a joke, considering half of the time when they're naked or undressing, it's in the crude normal style, and any time it's not, it clashes so much with the original style that it makes for a more "WHOA SHIT" moment.Well the fact they constantly do it makes it a crutch. It is there go to when they can't think of anything else to do. Even if it was funny, which it isn't...I don't even see how it could be, it is just plastered every where and it would be a joke that is a crutch. Also the Whoa Shit moments are obviously meant to tantalize and it seems to be everyone's favorite part evident by anime fans constantly posting those images when making endless Panty and Stocking threads on /co/.
God you trolls aren't even trying. I understand you like it but it is anime and shouldn't be posted here.
>>21235350I can't see how it's "fanservice" - the majority of the animation is too horrible to fap to, and even if you could, they don't show any real nudity.If anything, the crutch is bathroom humor and phony-maturity.
I've loved it since episode 1 and wish it got less hate on /co/. People here can be so soulless sometimes. "Ugh sex and poop jokes are so pandering and childish." LOOK AT WHERE YOU ARE, GOD DAMN.I like that it's more like a nineties/early aughts western cartoon than a later flashy-type one. And you really can't go wrong with Gainax.
>>21235373It's animated, it's in a western style, and it's enjoyable. If we need to start enforcing the rules to an exact degree, then technically we shouldn't be discussing live-action superhero movies or the Walking Dead tv-series here either.
>>21235414And let me add that these threads are also better than the multitude of "on-topic" MLP and Homestuck threads.
>>21235406>And you really can't go wrong with Gainax.Wow fanboys sure are the best sources for unbiaseds opinions
>>21235231>no matter whatBecause I like watching the same poses, same expressions, same overbearing dialogue, and same clichéd characters over and over and over again. That's why I watch anime, soap operas, bad action flicks, and B^U.
The best animated show on television with the most incredible sense of composition, not to mention a bitchin' soundtrack. Though, since I'm sure most of those concepts elude you, I'll just say:RRRRUURRRRUUUUUUS
Scanty>Piss>Shit>KneeggerLook into your hearts, /co/ You know it to be true.
>>21235435You're just biased against happiness at this point
>>21235457Bitch please, you can't deny them glasses.
>>21235448>sense of composition>pic relatedYou have no idea what composition is, do you.
>>21235414/co/ pitched a fit about Wakfu for a long time too, but it's cooled down. You'll still hear people bitch and moan occasionally though.
>>21235414All anime is animatedIt isn't really animated in a western style the animation is Japanese. The character design has some similarities to some western shows but not as much as people pretend it is. I don't find it enjoyable, that is subjective. The fact that you find this enjoyable doesn't mean you get to post it wherever you want.There is a difference from something that is a direct adaptation of a comic and something that kinda sorta looks like they might have copied powerpuff girls. The show is distinctly Japanese in its humor and references. I am sure a Made men thread would be better than MLP threads...I still don't post it here even though that has more of a reason to be posted here than Panty and stocking since it is of Western origin.
>>21235457Well of course Scanty is best.Thats a given.
bracing myself for the eventual episode where Brief gets laid. Even after pulling off his pants she STILL doesn't want to fuck him but I'm certain that will change.>>21233351shut the fuck up, you KNOW you had that themesong in your fucking head for like a day afterwards. Don't bother lying.
>>21235457>>21235581>Have horrible taste in women.
>>21235480OHOHOHO.GO ON THEN, I want to hear what you think composition is.
>>21235546>The show is distinctly Japanese in its humor and referencesBut almost all of the references so far have been to western cartoons and movies, and a lot of the prominent jokes are in English
>>21235618No thanks, this isn't an art class for a person who thinks THAT has good composition. Seriously, it's pathetic. "Throw everything together, TA DA, composition."Idiot.
P & S and G > Pretty much ever similar cartoon from the WestAnd if you like Westernboo animu comedies check out Pani Poni Dash. Tons of movie and game references throughout
>>21235546Meh, it's still gonna get discussed here. Speaking of /tv/ threads on /co/, we also have a lot of /v/ threads here today. So I don't see how we're causing that big of a disturbance.
>>21235639It parodies anime out alot from what i have seen, They parody transformations transformers, magical school girls. Most of the western references are only in the titles of the show.
Tsk tsk typical /co/You fags need to learn to have some fun
>>21235694because nerdrage. Some faggots can't let shit go and everyone always has to have the last word.
>>21235694I am just pointing out your logic is fucking retarded and that just because you like something doesn't make something /co/ related. usually when people wanted to make a anime thread on /co/ they would try to make it somewhat /co/ related.
>>21235603>bracing myself for the eventual episode where Brief gets laid. Even after pulling off his pants she STILL doesn't want to fuck him but I'm certain that will change.Say what?Panty already offered herself to him after the first incident with the Demon Sisters, and he said he wanted to take things slowly.And that's the joke. She just gives a damn about sex and dicks. He actually has a crush on her.
So when are they going to censor out the scene that imply Garterbelt to be a gay peadophile?
>>21235700Well yeah, it references anime as well, I just like the way it mixes the two so well.And thank you for recognizing the transformation segments are tongue-in-cheek, not just "hey they put tits in it, THAT MEANS THEY CAN'T WRITE".
Wait for it..
Personally, I'll probably end up watching the show after /co/ stops getting into internet fights with itself over it.Until then, I don't really care. Sage because that's all I've got to say.
>>21235639>namedropping and visual references mean it's /co/ materialHow about no.
This show is too good for /co/ which is dominated by shit like Avatar and men in brightly colored spandex and don't get me started on the ponies.
>>21235758It is tongue and cheek and meant to tantalize
>>21235779I'd say it's more /co/-related than "western-styled" anime like One Piece and nostalgic anime like Digimon, but less /co/-related than anime that are only known for their localizations, like Speed Racer or Voltron.
>>21235802Well, yeah, but that's not a bad thing at all really. The heavy western influence on the writers makes the jokes come off more like our silly sexy cartoons than a Japanese "lol panties" joke if you're not too stubborn about the interpretation, though.
You know what? I don't even like the show all that much and I think you people are being morons about what belongs on this board. /co/ regularly has civil discussions about One Piece, for fuck's sake. I can understand it if you don't like P+S, after all, the brand of toilet humor isn't exactly high brow or for everyone. But reporting and sagebombing isn't going to do shit. You're not the CYBER POLICE or some shit like that, and at the end of the day the mods decide what goes on /co/ and what doesn't.Also the show goes out of its way to become /co/ related, even having an entire Transformers segment, and you guys still complain about it?Jesus Christ, people. /co/ is better than other boards because it tends to be more accepting and more civil than most of the other boards on 4chan. And don't go "if this thread is full of /a/ shit then what's to stop the rest of the board from disrespecting the rules". It's not your job to enforce them, you fucking morons.OP was posting an analysis of the show and he was trying to be objective and civil about it. I don't see why you fuckers can't do the same.
>>21235932U MADAlso Transformers is japanese We also don't have civil one piece threads anymore and haven't for a long time
>omg powergirl's tits fap fap fap>what, panty taking her panties off, fanservice bullshit get out of my /co/>haha ren and stimpy you so crazy>lol it's called chokey chicken rocko's modern life is so edgy>what, finger PRINCE, thats hilarious animaniacs I love you>panty and stocking is juvenile and sophomoric how could anyone like this tripeI don't even like panty and stocking, the art style is cool but the show bores me. However you are a bunch of idiotic hypocrites. /co/ has gotten so bad this past year, it used to be the best board on 4chan. I think what started our decline was the rise of anti scott pilgrim threads. OMG HIPSTER SHIT SAGE SAGE SAGE. You guys are as bad as fucking /v/ now. And that's saying something.
Haters gonna hate; moving on.Back to good times shared with friends.
>>21235963So we can't talk about Transformers on /co/ any more?
>>21235967You don't even like the board, why are you here.Also all those shows were kids shows and had adult elements thrown in and we applaud them for getting away with it.This is just juvenile UNFUNNY (that is the key here...it isn't funny) and filled with half naked poorly drawn chicks. It is like every single bad anime comedy only it is intentionally drawn worse. That is why it is even failing with japanese audience
>>21235998We can talk about beast wars but that's it.
>>21235963I didn't think I'd ever have to post this on /co/.
>>21235967>>omg powergirl's tits fap fap fapJuvenile.>what, panty taking her panties off, fanservice bullshit get out of my /co/Juvenile AND autistic.>haha ren and stimpy you so crazyYes, have you seen Sven Hoek? That shit is crazy.>lol it's called chokey chicken rocko's modern life is so edgyThat's not what made Rocko's Modern Life edgy. What made it edgy is that it dealt with mature issues in a mature way. The Chokey Chicken part was for the kids.>what, finger PRINCE, thats hilarious animaniacs I love youThat's idiotic and anyone without nostalgia goggles can see that.>panty and stocking is juvenile and sophomoric how could anyone like this tripeYup.You gotta realize that /co/ is not some monolithic single-opinion creature. There are a lot of different people.Just like Power Girl is full of fanservice, so is P&S, but P&S are about two notches higher.So yeah, it's shit.
>>21235963Transformers are a Unity thing bro.
>>21236043>>21236012>UNFUNNY>poorly drawn>it's shit>You gotta realize that /co/ is not some monolithic single-opinion creature. There are a lot of different people.And half of /co/ likes it. You don't have to like it too, but we have strong enough justifications for it being discussed here.
Screw the rrrrurrruus.
>>21236043>implying Panty and Stocking are any notches higherWrong.
for shame /co/ why is it that /a/ gets all the awesome fan art when a series comes out but when a /co/ show comes out it's all shit doodles until a decent artist makes something.
only 7 more episodes, will /co/ last that long? will Transformers homage vs parody discussions be a mainstay? will people here continue thinking jacking off to cartoon ponies is classier than anime? tune in next week.
ATTENTION:Anyone that likes Panty and Stocking, watch Dead Leaves, it's the inspiration and basis for almost all of the style, animation, and humor for Panty and Stocking. It is also amazing.The artstyle is also the inspiration for all the Gurren Lagann eyecatches.Here's a link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=sj14whjh
>>21236135That's because there are a fuckton of broke doujin artists in Japan who practice one thing only until they're gods at it. Like autists.
>>21236043>You gotta realize that /co/ is not some monolithic single-opinion creature. There are a lot of different people. Maybe not all of /co/ is stupid but we've had a serious influx of trolls, people falling for the trolls, idiots, and people raging over stupid shit. STOP LIKING WHAT I DONT LIKE.jpg has never been more relevant than it is nowadays.
>>21236163>will people here continue thinking jacking off to cartoon ponies is classier than anime?Fuck, my keyboard is now covered in tea now.
>>21236104I don't care either way about this show, I haven't watched it and I have no plans to, so you guys do whatever.But the simple fact that "half of /co/ likes it" (I wasn't here when you did your poll...so I don't know how accurate that assumption is) doesn't make anything /co/related. I would surely hope there are several anime titles that at least half of /co/ likes. I would hope half of /co/ would enjoy monster or Sword of the stranger.Even though I am sure they would I that doesn't negate the fact it isn't of Western Origin and thus fails to meet the main criteria for being eligible for posting here. These threads are off topic no matter how you spin it, when you try and argue that it somehow is all you end up doing is making the thread worse and coming off as idiotic. Just talk about what you want and just knowledge that technically you are in the "wrong" (for lack of a better word)
i love this showand it's more /co/ related then 90 percent of threads on herethough for future OP, lets make the starter image a frame that looks western style, and not from one of the few seconds of the entire show that looks truly anime
>>21236135Because Japan. No sex. No kids.What else are you going to do except fantasize about rape and draw cartoons?
>>21236043>rocko's modern life>maturelaughingelfman.midi
>>21236175It was Imaishi's first stint as director proper. Before he was just the little bitch who did keyframes for a load of different shows, including some of the FLCL footage, some clips from Medabots, and the mecha action scenes from Abenobashi.Then Gurren Lagann happened and he was suddenly a much wanted commodity at the office because his fast and loose animation style meant he could draw 20 keyframes in the time it took for other, more detailed artists to do three or four.
>>21236163>will people here continue thinking jacking off to cartoon ponies is classier than anime?
>>21236197>doesn't make anything /co/related.You're right, it doesn't. The fact that it directly references /co/ material all the time and recently spent half an episode directly parodying Transformers does.
Yeah I saw episodes one and two yesterday, I finished watching my usual things and decided why not.The humour is extremely crude at times but its delivered quite well and its got better content than "I THRO SHIT AT HER BECAUSE LAWL"Crude humour doesn't appeal to everyone but it works well for this kind of show, one where you just turn your brain off and laugh a lot.The action is great, really great. Especially with the comic style text effects (in English despite it being Japanese, so that's nice). The shootout/car chase in ep 6 was pretty well animated and kept the action going for a good long time.The characters are blatantly one dimensional, but that's fine since its not a very serious show anyway, the side characters or random bystanders are quite well done at times.I thought it would be typical /a/ praisewhoring because they show there underwear, but It was way better than I could have hope, will watch again.
>>21236208How is the show of eastern origin more of western origin than 90% of our threads
>>21236235Transformers is japanese and besides the titles of the episodes and a vague visual image every now and then it hardly references cartoons at all
>>21236197>Just talk about what you want and just knowledge that technically you are in the "wrong" (for lack of a better word)Oh boy, someone is wrong on the internet! Stop the presses! Let me write an angry rebuttal even though I know I won't change anything! I won't be able to sleep at night if I don't have some kind of moral high ground!
>>21236197It's inspired by western subjects, that's enough to warrant discussion. By your logic we shouldn't discuss the iron man anime. And saying "it's shit" doesn't disallow it from being discussed. My Little Pony is a shitty girl's cartoon designed for the expreess purpose of selling overpriced plastic to little girls but we let those go on. If we started banning things from being discussed just because a small group doesn't like them this would be a horrible place.
>>21236175If you like Panty and Stocking, I'd moreso recommend Re: Cutie Honey than Dead Leaves. Especially if you've been enjoying the police chase scenes and backgrounds. And its soundtrack is absolutely incedible.POP POP PUYO PAH, POPOPO POP POP PUYO PAH.
Let's all argue about it.
>>21236197I'll quietly acknowledge it to myself if this thread gets deleted for being off-topic, then.I'm really loving the localization so far. It's good when you can't tell what jokes were made up just for English-speakers, I wish we could get that kind of flow going for European comic translations.
I like the action and the art style (I'm a sucker for westaboos) but the humor just doesn't make me laugh. It doesn't insult me by being lowbrow, it's just not amusing me. I just can't laugh at japanese humor. I only ever smiled at GTO and Cromartie High School, I didn't laugh, I was just amused.
I know no one will listen, but here goes:If you don't like a P&S thread (or any thread on a topic you don't like, in fact), then just STAY OUT OF IT. It's not your job to enforce the rules. On a board where 95% of threads are on-topic, a few getting through will not affect anything. Protip: Saging and arguing and telling people what they like is shit isn't gonna do anything.Double Protip: You're not a mod. Don't try to do their jobs. I know you regularly complain about there being "no mods" but that's not true. I saw them deleting some of the repeated MvC3 threads, so they do stop by. And if a P&S just got over 100 posts, that means they almost surely saw it and didn't see it as that big of a threat to the integrity of the board, and left it here.There are worse threads out there. If you don't like something but other people do, then just leave it alone. Thanks for reading.
Too coolface for you?
>>Apparently they see "LOL NOSEPICKING" and think it's humor.So does John K. I guess he's Wapanese, too, then? Fag.
>>21236273I had wrong in quotations and put (in lack of a better word) for a reason. I don't think you are wrong...just not right. There is a difference>>21236274You didn't actually read what I wrote...did you?By MY logic you should talk about the Iron man Anime and by My logic you should also talk about Panty and Stocking. My logic was that you shouldn't try and spend the majority of the thread trying to argue that this anime (with western references) should be posted here since by the very fact it is anime means it shouldn't be. You should just talk about the show you like and say fuck the haters. sage because apparently no one can understand what I write I guess.
>>21236358Thank you. You said what I was trying to say.And ironically this has been one of the calmer P+S threads.Either way it's almost amazing how little of a shit Gainax seem to care about whether this is liked or not. Japan doesn't like it. They probably know toilet humor isn't going to win it any western fans who think animoo's for perverts anyhow.Because Evangelion prints money
>>21235700Troll confirmed for not watching show.
>>21236358So I can finally post my child pornographyWe really don't have mods, porn threads are rampant here. The fact that /co/ has no mods is an established fact. Also we shouldn't be forced to deal with your endless anime threads because you are too FUCKING LAZY to move over to /a/
>>21236414Gainax confirmed for god tier trolls. Granted, it's not like this is new.
>>21236350>I only ever smiled at[...] Cromartie High School, I didn't laugh, I was just amused.Did you watch it subtitled or dubbed?>>21236378I like your "fuck the haters, talk about what you want" stance, but providing a good argument for why it is /co/ related helps prevent these threads from getting deleted or troll-bombed right off the bat, and it might convince lurkers to actually watch it for a reason outside of "Well, I like it, so you should too".
All threads about the GL movie are to be moved to /tv/All threads about MvC3 are to be moved to /v/They're not cartoons or comics, therefore they have no place here and all threads about them should be saged and reported.
This entire thread.
>>21236414>Either way it's almost amazing how little of a shit Gainaxseem to care about whether this is liked or notI know what you mean. They show this regularly at my university's anime club, and the delicious butthurt tears from the more hardcore weaboos are just delicious. One of them reminds me a bit of some of the people on 4chan: she's a huge as fuck Avatar: The Last Airbender fan, and will eat up all the normal status quo-preserving shows coming out of Japan every season, but as soon as P&S comes onto the scene and the rest of us are super into it, then she mad.
>>21235963If I see another one of your faggy Pony threads, you're getting counter-saged.
>>21236459We don't discuss it on /a/ for the reasons most of /co/ claims not to like PSG, ironically enough. They're "autistic perverts who only like glorious Nippon moe hipster blah blah" etc. etc...
>>21236519hey now some of us like both MLP and P&Sthey are not mutually exclusive
>>21236496That strip is drawn by someone how apparently doesn't know what cartoon styles are or what distinguishes them. Which isn't uncommon on /co/, just look at OP who can't seem to find what's so anime about P&S.
>>21236459>porn threads are rampant hereExcept there are none, except for the fan art threads. If that's what you're referring to, then it's not against the rules if they keep most of it spoiler-tagged. Kind of like what police do with people drinking alcohol on the street out of paper bags.>no modsExcept for what I told you, and except for the regular sticky threads whenever there's even slightly significant news, a new Venture Bros, or just something that happened in Amazing Spider-Man, and except for the regular modding that does go on. Just because /co/ behaves itself most of the time doesn't mean the mods don't stop by.
>>21236471>but providing a good argument for why it is /co/ relatedI seriously doubt you can, I don't doubt your ability to communicate your opinion. I just don't see how the very clear rule structure provides any leverage for you to possibly suggested that the board whose main rule is Cartoons and comics of western origin could be converted to allow shows of eastern origin that mentions western material.You are just running against a brick wall and look at this thread. I don't know much about this show and this thread has shown me little it is just people arguing why it should or shouldn't be here.
>>21236175>>21236309You do kow that P&S, Gurren Lagann, Dead Leaves and Re: Cutie Honey were all done by this guyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiroyuki_Imaishi
>>21236560Then why don't you educate us, professor? Since your such an expert on animation.
Can someone remind me of what it was like around here when Teen Titans was airing?Did it get a lot of hate for being weeaboo?
>>21236594You're a fucking moron. We have already explained to you how it is /co/ related. It references and parodies /co/ material. If this is not /co/ related then neither is any non-comic/cartoon incarnation of DC or Marvel characters.
>>21236587The strip's point is that there really isn't a difference between cartoons and anime. There is. I won't even bother explaining all the many huge differences because /co/ is just too dumb and/or autistic.
>>I just don't see how the very clear rule structure provides any leverage for you to possibly suggested that the board whose main rule is Cartoons and comics of western origin could be converted to allow shows of eastern origin that mentions western material."Should pertain to Western comics and cartoons". This show is made as a homage to just that. What part doesn't pertain to Western comics and cartoons when that's THE FUCKING PREMISE?
>>21236638the only difference between anime and cartoons is the country of origin, other than that there are no intrinsic differences.
>>21236638>autisticI don't think that word means what you think it means, son.
You sound like an aspie with a butt full of hurt. Also, you're providing no evidence to back up your statements. Provide or fail.
>>21236597Am I aware of my idol's other works?PERHAPS.
>>21236673autistic, aspie, and hipster lost all meaning on 4chan a long, long time ago.
>>21236594>I just don't see how the very clear rule structure provides any leverage for you>You are just running against a brick wallThat's kind of my point, though. If we're that strict about the rrrrrules, we're not going to have any fun around here. Look at the people in this thread saying that we shouldn't be allowed to talk about Transformers, for example.PSG is all about having fun, mixing things up to get something cool and new, and not giving a shit about what's conventional.
>>21236599Because it's a fucking waste of time, along with explaining what's composition to people like >>21235618 and what are some obvious anime idiosyncrasies to people like >>21233265He CAN'T SEE the "typical anime bullshit" in P&S. The tripfag CAN'T SEE what's wrong with the composition in the pics he posted, and in P&S in general.It's like talking about literature with a Twilight fan. They can't tell that "her traitor tears of betrayal betrayed her" is a bad sentence. They just can't. They're too stupid.
>>21236675 here.Forgot my link:>>21236638"All the many huge differences"Suuuuure.
sage I guess.
>>21236716See >>21236715You're either too dumb or too autistic to see.
>>21236732I'll never get how people don't realize posting in a thread to do nothing more than sage it is a complete waste of time.
>>21236715Oh wow, an armchair critic!It's been a while since I've seen one of you! Aren't you cute~
>>He CAN'T SEE the "typical anime bullshit" in P&S.Because there is hardly anything. Or is fluid animation suddenly a hallmark of anime? LOL
>>21236622Okay well now you guys have just become belligerent. I understand through the course of this thread you anger level is a at a fever pitch but don't try and take it out on me. I am the person trying to suggest you simply continue the thread and focus on the show you want to discuss instead of focusing on justifications why it should be posted. The rules are clear and referencing something that should be here doesn't mean you cross into being a western show. The rules indicate that the only barrier is that a show be of western origin. All the references and parodies in the world doesn't alter the country the show was written directed and produced. My point is simply stop trying to make stupid arguments why a show should be considered not an eastern show and just discuss it. Trust me you will enjoy the thread must more that way.
>>21236715inb4>"her traitor tears of betrayal betrayed her" IS A GOOD SENTENCE!Oh whoops, too late >>21236761
>>212367102006 /co/ was hell. Comic-only discussions during the day, cartoon-only conversations during the night. Mods deleted Cartoon threads in daytime /co/ and vice versa. Post anything resembling cheesecake? Ban. Post Deviantart artwork from a well known porn artist? Ban.
>>21236715You're a waste of time. My time. That is valuable and you're trolling is wasting it. Go back to jerking off ponies or Invincible or whatever it is you do.
>>21236710ExactlyYou are right...so stop arguing with them already (which is my whole point) you can't convince them.
>>21236638Who wants to bet this guy’s points are that 1) anime is sameface and 2) all anime uses the same poses all the time. These arguments seem to be all the rage right now.Guess what? Western cartoons are all based upon the same master style too, to the ame extent that anime is. And we overuse poses just as much (how many fucking times have you seen the heroic ‘camera at slight angle, body held low, one leg straight and the other bent, one arm held parallel to leg A while the other is raised, fists balled, scowl on face’ pose, for example? I guarantee you that nearly every character in Avatar, B:TAS, Batman Beyond, Ben 10, Teen Titans, Masters of the Universe, and every single other action cartoon ever released has pulled it off on multiple occasions).
>>21236762>The rules are clear/co/s rules are some of the most poorly-written on 4chan.>Images and discussion should pertain to media of Western origin.that can include live action TV, movies, video games, books, music, websites... pretty much anything.that doesn't contribute much to this discussion, I just think moot should at least make the rules of /co/ more... tight-knit?
>>21236776Asper-fag? How is it that P&S has actual decent animation while 99% of anime in general doesn't? Is a big budget only reserved for Western cartoons, too?
>>21236787Mods actually enforcing the rules? Horrors. I bet you hated it when they started deleting the mass porn threads on /tg/ too.
Jesus.I bet this is the look on Imaishi's face right now. We all fell for it. We'll probably still be falling for it 10 years from now.
>>21236839>/co/s rules are some of the most poorly-written on 4chan.This. Also, Moot doesn't really care one way or another. We we are "behaving badly", our behavior is still more organized and disciplined than any other board.
>>21236762Too many trolls who think they deserve to be mods, for that, son.
If the Panty and Stocking threads bother some of you just hide the thread, that's what it's there for.
>>21236805>how many fucking times have you seen the heroic ‘camera at slight angle, body held low, one leg straight and the other bent, one arm held parallel to leg A while the other is raised, fists balled, scowl on face’ pose, for example? I guarantee you that nearly every character in Avatar, B:TAS, Batman Beyond, Ben 10, Teen Titans, Masters of the Universe, and every single other action cartoon ever released has pulled it off on multiple occasionsAnd then of course there's the variant where the body is held slightly higher, and the harm that would have been parallel is pointing towards the screen at an angle, supposedly towards some offscreen character. Another pose that nearly EVERY even vaguely action-related character has pulled.
>>21236839The board is called Comics and Cartoons you fucking idiot. That is obviously the subject matter it doesn't need to be restated in the rules.
so...uh..why can't you guys discuss this over at /a/? It's obviously an anime.
>>21236976except even /a/ at least gets "anime and manga" mentioned in the board rules.and if it's just "comics and cartoons" why do we discuss live action superhero movies, or TV shows like Smallville and even some threads discussing Tower Prep huh? How about Marvel v. Capcom threads or Batman: Arkham City? None of those are cartoons or comics yet no one complains about them being here.
>>21236946Congratulations, you now realize Superhero shows are unoriginal shit too! Not as unoriginal as anime, but still unoriginal.Incidentally, those are some shitty poses you're talking about, and there's all the reason in the world never to use them again.Now, those poses are limited to heroic characters. Imagine if those poses were spread to ALL CHARACTERS in ALL GENRES OF WESTERN ANIMATION, and you're starting to get just how unoriginal anime is.
>>21237002/a/ is shit. I go there and all, but really, /co/ is a glorious haven for discussion compared to /a/. It's much easier to talk about every aspect, especially non sexual aspects, here. That's why every single anime that could possibly have an excuse to be talked about here are from time to time. That's my two cents, but I've never participated in one of these threads so whatever
>>21236800Okay.Admittedly I'm a little biased in PSG's favor. I'm an oldschool Craig McCracken/Cartoon Network fan, a Gainax fan, an Engrish fan, a "let's change how it looks for this part" fan, and female. It's wish fulfillment to me on every level, a cartoon I've wanted to see for a decade at least.
>>21236846>Mods actually enforcing the rules? Horrors. I bet you hated it when they started deleting the mass porn threads on /tg/ too.>Imageboard that requires visitors to be over the age of 18>Contains porn, hentai, and all sorts of illegal activity>Ridiculous amounts of censorshipYeah, you could say I was a little mad.
>>21237048>non sexual aspectsYou know how we keep it this way? By not watching shows that rely on blatant fanservice.
>>Imagine if those poses were spread to ALL CHARACTERS in ALL GENRES OF WESTERN ANIMATION, and you're starting to get just how unoriginal anime is.Uhuh, sure, whatever. Are you even trying anymore? You've switched from being embarassing to just being pathetic.
>>The board is called Comics and Cartoons you fucking idiot. That is obviously the subject matter it doesn't need to be restated in the rules.And that's why we have threads on tv shows, live-action movies and video games, peripherally linked by something comic/cartoon-related? Which is what P&S is, something comic/cartoon-related. Ok, then.
>>21237018>Imagine if those poses were spread to ALL CHARACTERS in ALL GENRES OF WESTERN ANIMATION, and you're starting to get just how unoriginal anime is.Except no. Show me an example of the upwards-stare hip-thrust shot that you spaz over in Darker than Black or Dennou Coil. Or Cowboy Bebop. Or Samurai Champloo. Or Kurenai. Or Mononoke. Or Ghost in the Shell. Or Baccano! Or Haibane Renmei. Or Eden of the East. Or Ergo Proxy. Or Diebuster. Or one of thousands of shows that you haven’t watched because you’re content to be utterly ignorant of the thing you’re arguing against.
>Panty and Stocking thread>190 post>85% of post are people trying to argue that Anime should be on the non anime animation boardI realize now people who start these threads don't even like the show, which is why they don't actually talk about it. They just dump pictures and use troll logic to try and turn /co/ into Glorious Nippon appreciation board # 2report, god I wish we had mods
Guys, don't you get it? This is what they want! They want us to claw each other's throats out over a fucking animated show! They want us to die on the altar of east vs west animation! They want to laugh as we all fall down, with our last whispered words being "...off... model.... death"! They fucking KNEW this'd start a war!
>>21237136How is this show a direct adaptation of a comic or cartoon...oh wait it isn't, Oh ok then
I hate this show like cancer and even I'll admit that it's /co/-related. I'll take this over pony shit.
>>21237136>Which is what P&S is, something comic/cartoon-related.Related to which Western comic or cartoon exactly? And I mean related, not just 'tenuous references'.
>>21237089See this shit? All the characters standing in the hip-thrust pose? (like this: http://www.infoaddict.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/superman1.jpg )PEOPLE DON'T STAND THAT WAY.However, 99.5% of anime characters stand that way all the time. This is the default anime pose.It makes me sick. It makes everything look the same. If you went and looked around, you'd see every person stands with their own unique balance. Sure, there's common ground, we all share the same basic bone and muscle structure, but people are DIFFERENT.When all the characters stand in this pose, it makes everything look samey.Now, it's not JUST this pose, it's a few other gestures, poses, and expressions that EVERY ANIME CHARACTER does.
>Transformers are japaneseBut the episode is obviously parodying the western movie.Also, Transformers has more western material than japanese.
>80% of this episodes budget.jpg
>>21237174How is it a comic or cartoon of western origin To me this is the Japanese equivalent of Teen Titans
>>21237177>people don't stand with their weight shifted to one sideyou...you're joking, right?
>>21237156>Glorious Nippon appreciation board # 2Sure is 4chan you're on. Or do you have this place confused with someplace else?
>>21237083But censoring porn is just so logical and reasonable for some reason, how could you be mad!? I bet you're a communist or maybe even an atheist!
>>21237177>However, 99.5% of anime characters stand that way all the time. This is the default anime pose.see>>21237151Oh look, your argument is no longer functional.
>>21237198behold the brilliance of the anti-weeaboo
>>21237173direct adaptation still doesn't make it a cartoon.I move we ban all discussion of live-action superhero movies, and video games based off of superheros, since they're not cartoons.
>>god I wish we had modsgod I wish more people would bother watching what they complain about
panty stockingpantystockingpanty stockingYEAAAAAAAAAAAAAa
>>21237194It's Western in spirit, and references a great deal of our shit, even though it's mostly visual gags.Thought expriment. If a Japanese man comes to America and makes a show, which board talks about it? If an American moves to Japan and makea a show, which board talks about it? The respective subjects are the showrunners and executive producers, with animation teams native to the countries they moved to. Go.
>>21237202You are right, most of the boards on here are about japan and anime to some extent. BUT THAT ISN'T ENOUGH FOR HARDCORE WEEABOOSOne of the few boards that isn't has to talk about anime as well, they can't be bothered going to any of the other 6 boards that talk about anime or japan. Every single board must discuss anime all the time FOREVER
>>21237241People on both sides throw giant turds over the fence.This is made especially prevalent if the show is polarizing in nature. Personally, I'm pro skub myself.
>>21237173Thanks for the heads up. Gonna sage super hero tv shows for being /tv/ and super hero games for being /v/ from now on.
>>21236357lol that applies to pretty much 95% of animation in GENERAL. Rather it being them animating the whole thing in entirety, or just the in-betweening.
>>21237177>mfw those are basically superhero poses, and are actually all different from one another, the only similarity being that they're all shifting their weight, which is what people do yo stand comfortably.You're a joke.
>>21237249>all boards talking about anime forever>some dudes just want to talk about Panty & Stockingsure is histrionic in here.
>>21237249Do you actually read what you're typing or do you just pull your pants down and shit all over the keyboard?
Can we at least agree the explosion scenes are awesome?
>>21237241Written produced directed in one country...than it holds its origins in that country. It isn't as confusing as your little mind thinks it is
I don't know why you people would spend 190+ posts defending this crap, its just Invader Zim with sluts instead of retards.
>>21237280No. I'm too smart to agree with the weeaboos and the filthy heathens. Explosions are for dumb people.
>>Every single board must discuss anime all the time FOREVERThen it's too bad this board discusses video games, films, anime and tv shows related to cartoons and comics only. I would love to piss you off more.
>>21237280Can we at least agree it isn't funny and that even Japan doesn't like the show
>>21237210>Cowboy BebopThey spend half the movie in the hip-thrust position, give me a break.>Ghost in the ShellSame.Haven't watched the others, but open your eyes, you simply CAN'T SEE.
>>21237280Sure they are.Most of the time thanks to the very good use this anime gives to onomatopoeia.
Just be best to ignore the sagefags, they don't get it and never will.
>>21237302One could argue that Japan "doesn't like" it because it was made for a Western audience.
>>21237285Most /a/ and /co/ is made in Korea, anyway. We need a /ko/ board.
>>21237343That would give me too much hope for more Asaekkiga komics
>How is this /co/-related? Because it's a Japanese cartoon>IT'S WESTERN IN SPIRIT>But it's not Western in origin at all>I GUESS WE CAN'T TALK ABOUT SUPERHERO MOVIES EITHER THEN>Wait, what?>UHHHHHHHH UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>21237255You might notice that /co/ doesn't stand for "Super Heroes." If it isn't a comic or a cartoon as indicated by the FAQ & Rules, it doesn't go here. If you're talking about a video game, then you're not talking about a comic/cartoon, now are you? If you choose to ignore it, don't be a crybaby when people who want 4chan not to suck sage and report your crybaby ass.
>>21237342I would argue that it is because it fucking sucks, and that the simple fact that is was made in japanese and they parody anime constantly means it is just a shitty japanese comedy
>>21237370How is a live-action movie the same as a cartoon or comic? It's /tv/, just as anime is /a/. I guess you're trying real hard to be ignorant, there.
>>21237343written produced and directed and created in one country, sent to korea to do grunt work
>>21237378so you agree that discussions of the Green Lantern movie, The Dark Knight Rises, the Spider-Man reboot, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and the like are against the rules and should be deleted, right?
>>21237368>googleOh my goodness hijacking this thread now
>>21237402Moving your goal posts, huh? You just lost the game.
>>21237302>and that even Japan doesn't like the showBaseless speculation is baseless.
HEY SOMEONE TELL ME A GOOD GAG FROM THE SHOW. OR LINK TO A YOUTUBE VIDEO THAT HAS A GOOD GAG FROM THE SHOWOR POST A SCREEN CAP THAT HAS A FUNNY LINE OF DIALOGUE ITS A COMEDY RIGHT? SO YOU HAVE TO KNOW SOMETHING FUNNY don't do it from the first 3 episodes because I already watched them and they were GOD FUCKING AWFUL
>>21237407I want to congratulate you for reading, but instead I'll just heave a sigh and say "Yes, that is exactly what I just said."
>>21237433Bad rating are bad, or so I hear
>>21237458HEY GUYS LOOK AT ME YELL MY OPINIONS.
>>If it isn't a comic or a cartoon as indicated by the FAQ & Rules, it doesn't go here. If you're talking about a video game, then you're not talking about a comic/cartoon, now are you? >>mfw the entire board is filled with MarvelVSCapcom and Scott Pilgrim live-action shit. Not being reported.
/co/........has become /v/.A comedian died tonight.
>>21237466then have fun saging and reporting 50% of /co/ threads.you must really enjoy the board enough to take it upon yourself to enforce the rules so thoroughly.
>>21237474>implying the visible parts of my post gave any opinion what so ever
>>21237401>How is a live-action movie the same as a cartoon or comic?If the original media was a western comic or cartoon, you can discuss it on /co/. If there's a theatrical adaptation of that comic/cartoon you can discuss it on /co/. If a Western non-/co/ series gets a comic or cartoon you can discuss that, too (but too many people take it to mean they can discuss any stupid shit they want by using the comic as justification for it).Panty & Stocking isn't an adaptation of a Western comic or cartoon. Neither is Big O, Pokemon, or Dragonball - they're Japanese series to discuss on /a/. Deal with it.
>>21237307My god, you are actually blind. That said, prior to the example you posted, I thought you had a ghost of a point, at least, but you really don’t. Super-exaggerated hip-thrust stuff does appear a lot of a certain few genres (note: slice of life, comedies), but you’re not even talking about that. The example you posted was not a picture of three characters pulling the same pose, but of three characters shifting their weight while they stand. That’s not a fucking ‘super-exaggerated hip-thrust’. That, as has been said earlier, is how people stand comfortably. Some people put their weight forwards, some people shift it to the side, but all of them do it to an extent and you are a moron if you think otherwise.
>>21237485All Asians look alike.
>>21237495>implying your post doesn't boil down to "I GOT OPINIONS AND IT'S YOUR JOB TO PROVE YOUR OPINIONS ARE AS VALID AS MY OPINIONS".you're a joke.
>>21237513>That, as has been said earlier, is how people stand comfortablyThis is what weeaboos actually believe. And all these girls are standing around with their knees bent because that's just how highschool girls stand, amirite?Go outside sometime, look at real people.
>>21237508The problem with this post is that it relies on common sense, which is ironically rare as fuck on 4chan - too many self-entitled kiddies screaming HATERS GONNA HATE and DON'T LIKE IT HIDE IT.
Atleast Panty & Stocking is more /co/ related than MLP is.
>>21237491I actually don't come here very often for that exact reason. You faggots are the only board that does this shit and you act high and mighty for it. /v/ never posts on topic either, but they also don't cry when people bitch about it and they know they are retards.
>>21237519>implying I didThis is a thread about a comedy show, I am trying to see if it actually gets better. I am trying to see if the fans can actually provide something funny from the show. The fact that you are so uncoperative proves that either you can't think of anything or you would rather argue with me that actually use this as a chance to get this thread back on course by posting hilarious moments from the show you love.Your a troll and a idiot
>>21237508Everything you just listed belongs in /v/ or /tv/, not /co/. Deal with it.
>>21237586Oh I want to hear this rationalization
>>21237513See the pose that kid is pulling? Do people "just shift their weights to be comfortable" like that? Bullshit.That's how anime looks like to me. Ridiculous, overused poses. NO ONE stands like that kid. That kid has been told specifically to "do a Ben 10" pose, which is, surprise, the overused hip-thrust. If you think that kid is just shifting his weight to get comfortable, you need to get out more.
>>21237491Drawfag request:A comic with a neckbeard in a hall monitor outfit going from thread to thread, saging and reporting everything that he doesn't like (i.e. most things). This can be represented by him interrupting the discussion to write them up. When someone invites to discuss things instead of trying to be the cyber police, he just gets mad and yells.
>>21237586MLP is /toy/-related and should stay there.
>>21237567What’s wrong with you? Those poses are not all the same. God, you can’t even find a bunch of characters by the same artist that are in the same poses.And yes, people stand like this. NOBODY stands perfectly straight. People ALWAYS shift their weight slightly to one side, or forwards, or backwards. Almost everyone has one knee slightly bent when standing at ease. If you don’t do this, you are a fucking robot.
>>21237597except no matter what anyone posts you're going to argue THAT'S NOT FUNNY THAT IS SO STUPID BAR BAR BAR. Not to mention how funny any one person finds it doesn't really make a lick of difference.
>>21237580>>it relies on common senseIt relies on /tv/ and /v/ and /toy/ being /co/. FFS.
I realized why i like the music so much recently.It sounds like mother fucking Daft Punk.
>>21237625So your argument for why that pose is inherently "anime" is... an example of it in a western /co/ property?You weren't exactly debate team captain, were you?
>>21237636Here's an alternative drawfag request: draw a group of fat anime/yaoi/Doctor Who fangirls sitting at a table labelled /co/. A guy asks them to leave and sit at another table and they start screaming and flinging shit at him.
>>21237654It just happens that the vast majority of those girls are bending their knees inward, amirite? People stand that way!This kid >>21237625 is standing in a perfectly natural pose! He's just shifting his weight!You seem to think there's no alternative between "perfectly straight" and "not a clichéd overused shitty pose". By the way, a lot of anime characters DO stand perfectly straight; it's yet another clichéd overused pose, usually to express childlike confusion.
>>21237647ahahaha whoever makes these is a genius
>>21237625>people don't really stand like that!>I'll prove it by posting someone standing like that!
>>21237636Yeah, but have him yelling at a baby who can't read and is covering his ears and screaming "NO NO NO NO NO NO"
Panty and stocking is pretty much shit. The only passable episode in the show so far was 6, and only because it had a ten minute fight scene in it.I started out cautiously optimistic for this series, "at least it's different" and all that, but what can I say? It has shit for plot, every character is unpleasant and the jokes are beyond bad.
I don't know why I would bother saging this fucked up thread, so I'll just point that no one's going to be convinced by anyone's piss poor arguments and that you'll all still be idiots looked down upon by every other board.Why did even bother making this post, I'll never know.
>>21237709>why that pose is inherently "anime"No, I gave that kid to show that IT'S AN UNNATURAL POSE.Look at that kid. Now look at the Phoenix Wright pose. Now watch Cowboy Bebop.That pose is fucking overused in anime.It's unnatural.It's overused and unnatural.
>>21237672Let me guess, you're pissed that people are suggesting you take your unrelated shit and leave, so you're using the old strawman argument. Real mature.
PEOPLE'S HEADS AREN'T THIS BIG, THIS GUY SHOULD GO OUTSIDE AND LOOK AT REAL PEOPLE
>>21237625>NO ONE stands like that kidNot many people cross their arms like that, as it's a sign of insecurity, but that's a pretty fucking common way to stand. People shift their weight to whichever side they're comfortable with. Often this includes, yes, their hips being situated slightly forwards and to the side, especially for males who wish to seem assertive.You don't get out much, do you?
>>21237567>>21237625You are making an ass out of yourself. As bad as John K and "tude" faces. So congratulations on that one.
>>21237754>I can't tell the difference between a stylistic choice and an overused clichéThere's a reason anime and cartoon heads are big. Now imagine if all heads were drawn in the exact same way.For instance, IF THEY ALL HAD POINTY CHINS.Oh whoops. Shit.Now see, the pointy chins are very much like the hip-thrust pose. Way too common.Sure, some people have pointy chins, but not as many as in fucking anime. Some people stand in the hip-thrust pose (gay people, mostly), but not as many as in fucking anime.
>>21237637but MLP has a cartoon which is /co/
>>21237796>Sure, some people have square chins, but not as many as in fucking cartoons.
>>21237770Next you're going to deny a vast majority of anime characters have pointy noses and pointy chins.
>>21237668I don't look forward to being dissapointed and I don't get off on not enjoying myself. Even if I was what you say, WHY WOULD YOU REFUSE TO POST PANTY AND STOCKING IN A PANTY AND STOCKING THREAD. I will never understand you people
>>21237818Like I said before, superhero cartoons are nearly as inbred as anime, but it's ONE GENRE. Think of all the genres in anime that are as inbred as superhero cartoons, and even moreso.
>>21237829FUCK I LOVE THIS COMIC.
>>21237796you... you're so blinded with rage that you can't even detect light-hearted sarcasm? you poor thing... here, take this. you need it more than i do.
>>21237717>It just happens that the vast majority of those girls are bending their knees inward, amirite? People stand that way!People do commonly bend their knees inwards more often when it’s cold. For example, when it’s winter.Winter, like the winter uniforms those girls are wearing. Learn to context you fucking moron.
>1. Images and discussion should pertain to media of Western origin.>origan not referencan
>>21237818Superhero cartoons: square jaws are common, because square jaws signify masculinityOther cartoons: square jaws are rare, usually given to masculine charactersAnime: pointy chins on nearly all characters.See? It's really not that hard to realize that anime has an unnaturally uniform character design. Sure, there's an odd character with a square jaw, but you have to be blind not to see that the vast majority of characters have a pointy chin for no fucking reason.
Cartoons and anime are the same shit, much like JRPGs and WRPGs are also the same shit. They just cater to different audiences and come from different places. Saying that something is limited to a particular style because of the place it comes from is fukkin ig'nint. Nothing has stopped western animators from adopting eastern styles and nothing has stopped eastern animators from adopting western styles. Nothing, that is, except dicks who believe one's inherently better than the other and hate variation in their medium of choice.I'm going to go somewhere for a couple of days before /co/ gets its shit together and remembers it's not /v/.
>>21237821Seriously /co/ I love you. But it's the hypocrisy that kills me. You act like your shit doesn't stink just as much. Should we go through all the cartoon characters that have noodle arms while we're here?
>>21237885>short shirts>short skirts>winterDERP.
>>21237846Were you around when it wasn't allowed on /co/ at all for being Korean, and therefore not strictly Western? And you can't post them on /a/ because they're not Japanese, either.That was the only time someone could say /b/ and /v/ were good and be completely right.
>>21237893>It's really not that hard to realize that anime has an unnaturally uniform character design.You mean like One Piece, Dragonball, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Dororo, Sgt Frog, Ikkitousen, Yankee-kun and Megane-chan, and Panty & Stocking? Because they all look the same, I assure you, no fooling.
>>21237843You really think square chins are omnipresent only in one genre? So not only do you know nothing about anime, but also western cartoons, too.
I love this show.I knew I was signing up for a slippery slope when I watched it, knowing full well if it turned out to be awesome I'd get shat on by every japanese-hating retard on /co/.So I'm not going to try and convince you all that the show is hilarious and great, because nothing I do or say will. I just want to talk about it with other /co/mrades who DO like it, and not have people come in and shit on our parade even when we keep it inside a few threads and don't bother anybody else.please just let us enjoy the show in peace :(
And that's all
>>21237941Those are winter uniforms. The skirts are short because it's a fucking comedy about stupid Japanese shit, but they're wearing winter uniforms on their top halves.
>>21237954>One PieceThey all have pointy chins>DragonballSame>Panty & StockingSameHaven't watched the rest, but WHY WOULD THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME CHIN DESIGN?>>21237963Give me a break. Take Venture Bros, for example. The masculine characters have square chins, the weak characters have weak chins, some characters have chins inbetween. Take an anime show (let's say Cowboy Bebop). There are one or two characters with a non-pointy chin. The rest, male, female, child, elderly, whatever -- pointy chin for absolutely no fucking reason.I love how anime watcher's defense is BUT SUPERHERO CARTOONS SUCK TOO.
This thread is now about chins.I hope this thread gets deleted just for turning into shit thanks to sagefags. Have fun talking about nothing because you're too busy enforcing "rules"
>>21238049I know Moot really needs to make a board where people can talk about anime. If only there was an anime board I could talk about all the anime I enjoy. I hate it when I find an anime I like and then I come to the board created to not talk about anime and then when I try and talk about it they get all pissy and tell me to go somewhere else. They should work with my laziness and just ignore the whole point of the board so I don't have to go somewhere else.
>>21238049I'm kind of disappointed /co/ doesn't just quietly accept PSG as awesome like they do with other stuff, I thought it'd be right up their alley.I'd say it's just trolling, like with Scott Pilgrim, but people in these threads honestly seem like they want to have no fun.
>>21238186Your logic confuses meWe acknowledge several shows are awesome and don't have threads about them. Monster doesn't get threads but we all acknowledged it was awesome. And how do your really think reporting a thread about an anime on the none anime board is trolling. Obviously the thread was created to troll and the report button was created to do away with threads that should be here.Also why do you come here if talk9ing about western shows isn't fun enough for you. If you really feel you can't have fun without bringing up anime then maybe you are in the wrong place or you are trolling (which I suspect you are)
>>21238285But it's an anime about Western shows
>>21238321You act like the entire show is them going around talking about western shows. They make some slight references to them but it isn't kappa Mickey for god's sake. Even if they did reference western shows it isn't a western show. Megas XLR isn't anime and they parodied anime more than p&S have visual references to western shows. Plus it isn't even western cartoons it is all wesern media by that logic you should go to /tv/ and talk about it there. They mention our movies more than our cartoons And Why can't you have fun talking about western cartoons and comics? I really want to know how not talking about this one anime makes you think this board is no fun...why do you even come here.
>>21238132but /a/ hates it, and I'm a /co/mrade, not some /a/ faggot.
>>21238410>Looks at this threadYeah great conversation about the show going on hereAlso /a/ doesn't hate this at all, I actually go there when I want to talk about anime and I have seen several threads about it. The boards cross populate, not all of us are like you and have some idiotic board tribe mentality
>>21238403Okay, I typed too quickly. It's more about how whenever PSG does come up, it gets called shitty and saged right off the bat, no one says "it's okay but not co-related" like Cromartie High or Monster. People are hating on it just because it's Japanese, and they immediately assume because it has female main characters and fanservice it's one of those glorious nippon moe bullshit things. It's not, and they're missing out on something truly wonderful if they think that and try to get others to think that.It's not just the random references, it's the fact that the whole show looks like 2 Stupid Dogs with a budget. It's amazing and stuff like this would be good for the entire animation industry if animefags and cartoonfags didn't dismiss it as being too country or too rock n' roll.
Panty and Stocking is a huge homage to /co/ so it definitely deserves mention here. Just not daily threads about it. Also I don't see why it's so awesome, I was honestly bored by it. I was expecting more out of gainax. Nice fight scenes and art style though. Also you sagefags are pathetic. It's so blatantly obvious that you' hate it's japanese. I don't get why there has to be this huge divide between japanese and western animation. /a/ thinks avatar the last airbender is shit because it's not japanese or moe and will flame anyone discussing it. And they say american cartoons are childish in general. /co/ likes to generalize all anime as being generic and shallow. Really it all boils down to one being different and someone not liking it because of that. So they come up with justifications for their xenophobia. Usually by stereotyping and generalizing what they don't like. "Oh all anime is shitty fanservice and narutu sand ninjas", "fuck off all amerikkkan cartoons are mindless brain numbing shit meant to keep kids occupied while their parents drink". Well guess what idiots, both countries have their own good and bad. You can't magically make an entire medium bad by talking about it's worst parts. If I judged /co/ by the plethora of shitty canadian flash cartoons and bad 80s shows I could easily make an argument for people to stop watching western cartoons. Grow up and give shit a chance. Hell give Panty and Stocking a chance, I did and didn't like it, you might, if you don't, that's great, don't get all high and mighty because you don't. Your subjective tastes don't make you better than anyone else. that's a lesson it seems nobody on /co/, /mu/, /v/, or /a/ can seem to learn.
>>21238563But I think all of 4chan can agree that country is shit.
>>21238563I understand that you are an avid fan of this series but that doesn't change the fact that even though it sort of looks like a western cartoon...it isn't a western cartoon. Totally spies and Teen titans sort of look like anime but it isn't anime. I have actually seen the first two episodes of this series and I was not impressed at all by its quality. But lets say I was and I did think it was cool but not /co/related. The end result would still be the same...people telling you not to post it here. Looking like anime doesn't make something /a/ related I am sure the guy behind megatokyo kicks himself every night because no one considers his webcomic a manga. And panty and stocking isn't a cartoon because the character design was westernly influenced.
>>21238757I don't mind that people don't think it's /co/-relatedI mind people hating on it for all the wrong reasons
Has it ever occurred to the Panty and Stocking fans that people might not hate it because it is Japanese...but hate it because it is a bunch of shitty sex jokes and poop and toilet jokes. That people might just find it unfunny and not enjoyable, which is apparently the feeling in Japan according to the shows ratings and general reception. /co/ loves several japanese shows we love Big O, Cowboy Bebop, a bunch of stuff. We don't have constant threads about them because they aren't /co/ related.
>>21238869We latch on to the anti-Japan argument because it's easier to give examples of other good anime than to show /co/mrades are hypocritical for disliking poop and sex jokes while still loving South Park et al
I see Power Rangers threads in/co/, that is neither a cartoon nor comic, nor is it actually Western. But I'm completely fine with it here even if I don't participate in any of the threads. It be the same if we were talking about Tron, neither cartoon nor comic, but it feels just fine here. Digimon, well that's just anime, but I rarely see Digimon threads get picked apart by sagefags, and I'm fine with those threads.But I'm totally not fine with the My Little Pony threads, what is so appealing about it? Still I don't bitch and whine about, I just find a thread I can enjoy.
