    Heh, I linked the first page of the thread instead of the last and strongly warned though.

    More and more posts were either asking for or giving hints about the future events and I decided it was time to cut them. From now on every such post will be deleted.

    my favorite pass-time on this forum is tormenting you!
    To be fair her repertoire isn't that diverse, she has made a career out of adapting either shonen or SoL shows, she varies the moeblob factor depending on the show.

    Oh and I don't see you in the Death Parade thread, not watching it?

    Well, since every thread is heading towards Kyoani hate, I'll bring this here instead.

    Going to try this one more time. KnK PV's and synopsis made it seem like it was going to be a supernatural/anime in the reigns of something like Shana or Index (and jokingly at the time was called the future Monogatari Killer, which in hindsight is hilarious now).

    However, when the series actually aired, it was just like every other typical Kyoani series.
    I was on /a/ when they started coining that term for KnK, and only idiots would fall for that. I do understand the concern, though. When the "No Line" PV of KnK aired, I thought of the same thing, but I willingly adjusted expectations as soon as the other PVs were released. As an avid fan of Shana and Index, I never saw KnK as either and it was definitely NOT Bake-esque. My expectations for KnK was simply "it would look good" and it did look good, and for me all else were just well-accepted extras.

    It was filtered through their lens with their streamlined high school comedy and moe antics which comprised the majority of the series and then as a distraction put a few action and cool scenes here and there and called it a day. That is what you call false advertising.
    Another thing I saw in KnK was how it was using the newfound knowledge they have in animating fluids that they used in Free in animating Mirai's blood and similar details. For a time, I see KnK as merely another test, but this time in choreographing battle scenes, something they haven't done for a long time. That's probably another reason my expectations aren't as high as others do.

    In a vacuum no it doesn't. But given how Kyoani series resulted in the past, post Clannad After Story years, it isn't unwarranted.
    It's exaggerated and hyperbole, but unfortunately it does paint a picture of what Kyoani is nowdays.
    I don't care about how great Kyoani was and how shit they are supposed to be. Nowadays, I passively look for ways to make any anime series I pick up an enjoyable experience, and only the utter shit of them all ends up dropped (e.g. Mahouka). That's probably the problem why the critics' opinions all whiz by my head.

    I have to be up for Valentine's day trip tomorrow at 5AM, neither do I.

    Actually, next week in general might be a bit tough - technically I'm on break but there's a paper due shortly after I get back.

    Bit of preliminary data:

    Spoiler for Simplified list - total shows and classics:

    "Classic" just means I consider it a standout among the entire period considered, which is a bit arbitrary.
    The notable observations here are how the variation in how many shows I like year to year is pretty small and how bad 2009 was save for a few standouts.

    And here's a slightly more detailed set:
    Spoiler for Less simplified numbers:

    2014 doesn't look quite as strong here, does it? Note the classics category includes Classic+ (basically the "shortlist") and tier 1 includes both, I just bother marking classic/classic+ because such shows can skew my overall impressions a bit.

    Will send the detailed data later.

    I'll probably format the data and send it to your and Triple_R at somepoint soon.

    I'm actually liking this second half of Shirobako a lot. First was a more hit and miss.

    So I decided to rank all the TV series (not including specials, movies or OVAs) I watched and liked a lot in 2008 to 2014 from tier 1 (highest) to tier 3 and then broke that down further (ie. 1+, 1, 1-). Then I produced a "classics" list, again split into three tiers.

    Then I determined my feelings on the years in question:
    Tier 1: 2011, 2012
    Tier 2: 2008, 2013
    Tier 3: 2010
    Tier 4: 2009, 2014

    Further notes:
    2011/2012 were very high on quality and quantity of shows, with 2013 also being fairly high on both measures.
    2008 was high on quality but didn't do quite as well quantity wise.
    2010 was mid tier on both.
    2009 has a few really good shows but didn't rank many shows overall.
    2014 ranked quite a lot of shows but very few ranked highly.

    Also, man I'm much pickier about action and "artsy" stuff than stuff I like for characters or cuteness.

    I'm still debating whether I'm willing to PM you the data. The guilty pleasure to actually good stuff ratio is a bit embarassing at points.

    Aww, how nice of him to put that at the start of the AS Awards thread. Was a good lol@Pocari moment.

    Your comment has sent me on a great and noble quest to determine whether or not a character can be "tsundere" towards another character(s) who is not a love interest. I may have been misusing the term a bit.

    Moe is another term that is not really very well defined. Are you using it in the sense of finding a character absolutely adorable?
