Anime with intellectual content, with the exception of Freudgelion, didn't sell so they stopped making it.

What did you understand on the first view about Eva? If you just mean the message then it's pretty much spelled out, if you mean the whole plot and lore I doubt that. Most of it is only understandable with a rewatch and putting info you get earlier on into the context of info you gather later.

I know, I never can trust Sheeky Forums when it comes to talking about shows that are "deep." Sheeky Forums is full of a bunch of dumb fucks that are more motivated to spout memes and foster arguments than actually have a good discussion.

@VisualMaster
I get the feeling that the niche for unconventional stories has been replaced by shows that start with a creative premise/setting but a story that goes absolutely fucking nowhere (pic very related)

Shows like that sell better than "deep" ones because the concept is enough to keep desperate depth-seekers watching out of blind hope but never go anywhere that would risk making even the plebbiest plebs quit midseason.

Is that somehow supposed to prove you're not a pleb when you've only seen 370 series? Anyone who's downloaded an Anonymoose torrent has seen his work. The plebs in the 3x3 threads circlejerk to him often enough even someone who has only seen 100 series could have heard of him.

SniperWish
SniperWish

@Booteefool
That torrent was downloaded 600 times, very possible that some of those downloads were by the same people. I know I did two times. So you're saying the actions of maybe 500 anime selected anime fans constitute the norm? I've talked to people irl from my studies and work who watch anime and about half of them had no idea what Madoka is. None of them knew who Yuasa was. I was at a convention where I talked a bit more in depth about anime with a dozen people and among those two knew who Yuasa or Ikuhara was. There was a panel about the history of anime and it started with Tezuka.

So if you think somoene who first of all. Actually goes to Sheeky Forums. Isn't repulsed by the first minutes on it. Sticks around enough to find out about 3x3 threads. Stays long enough in them to check them every couple of days at least. Is invested enough to get interested in the one pic on that one anon's 3x3 featuring a whale's tail or the other one with what would seem like some disney ladybug is a pleb... I think we're starting to be a bit absurd here.

I love a good old mindfuck when it does come around, but its been getting rarer and rarer. From the mid 90's to the mid 2000s you could count on 2 or 3 shows a year to make the attempt. After that period of time, things seemed to dwindle and now its pretty rare to see high concept stuff get launched.

I hope that this kind of stuff can make a bit of a comeback, since its almost always really interesting watching, and even the failures have something that can justify taking a look.

In the meantime, I'll just quietly wait and see what happens with Despera, and hope something pops out of nowhere to surprise me.

I'm a catholic mystic, deep to me is staring eternity in the face, venturing to the utter extremity of human perception and overcoming the whole of contingent reality in order to glimpse the true ineffable nature of divine mystery.

That said, two shows that registered highest on the 2deep4u scale:
1.) Angel's egg
2.) Boogiepop phantom

Yes, anime fans consider anything with the slightest hint of symbolism or abstract cinematography to be pretentious or 2deep4u bullshit.

The only two anime I've ever dropped are Ergo Proxy and Ore Monogatari.

Ergo because it was SUPER-boring and Ore because their cutesy love was way too annoying for me. Also the MC is too Garrosh Stu.

As someone who watched along with Sheeky Forums and followed the weekly threads to the bitter end myself, I ask you; what was this show even about?

SniperGod
SniperGod

@BunnyJinx
I did the same as you, /a/non. And let me tell you that I myself was confused by the whole predicament. The glassblowing was not important at all.

The story was just about a girl who thought she had close friends meeting a guy during her summer break who she lustfully falls in love with while realizing that she really didn't know her friends all too well. But they tried using symbolism with those chickens and the one by itself (could arguable be her or her crush). Also the guy (David) was going through some mental problems too (the Multi-personality disorder thing?). At the end the group matures and grows closer, except for the FeMC because she still lusts for the guy who leaves her to live with his mom.
