So I have a huge list of weeb soykaf thanks to you guys.
Now we need to cut it down to a more reasonable size and remove all the soykaf from it.

Since it's so long I've decided we will go a section or two at a time; so for now we will focus on the anime.

http://pastebin.com/NEwAXbS7

There's about 88 entries in the list, we should probably cut it down to 45 or less, especially considering that some of these entries count as multiple anime series.
So basically:

Tl;Dr: Submit corrections and what you think should be removed (and why).
We can argue if said thing should actually be removed.

How about you sort that thing first? Like, introduce some categories (genres, animation styles, date of airing etc.)? What’s the purpose of a list consisting of 88 (or 45) titles? You don’t expect anybody to just start watching from the top? Because that would be plainly wrong.

Well that's not what it was intended to be, the list is meant to be representative of what /w/ thinks is Japanese media worth consuming; but if you guys think it really should be /cyb/ only then I don't see why I can't change it.

>>3155
See above

>>3153
Partly addressed above.
This is hard the hard part of making a rec list, it's easy to get submissions but figuring out how to shrink the list is difficult.

Also, I avoided posting series thinking that everyone would have so many that it would be best to share other types of media. If you want what /w/ thinks and not just cyb I'm legitimately surprised Mawaru Penguindrum wasn't suggested. How did that even happen. Is it because everyone has already seen it?

By my humble opinion creators of such lists must have around 400–500 finished animu in the list and my MAL is *slightly shorter.*
If I were to make such a thing I’d consider to create an IRC channel and invite there 300-400-500-kuns to help me out. (that would be fun to make them calling themselves in accordance with the number of series they’ve finished, like 7-suke, 24-chan, 505-kun or 9000-dono). A review of older lists would take place somewhere around here. Then we’d decide in which way we’re going to create the new one — maybe somebody comes up with something innovative, like ‘a perspective on moesoikafu through decades’ or so. I’d put on such a subject as ‘does it have a point to separate those series/films/manga that would comprise an entry-level block?’ and to pick for it one animu per each genre/category. In case of difference in opinions there should be a vote by those who’s watched all candidates. But this means that all MALs shall be collected beforehand, mendokuse na~…

  No.3164

Eve no Jikan is missing. This is essential.

Black Rock Shooter has good visuals but a really bad plot that feels like an excuse for the animators to do whatever they like. I would remove it.

Mononoke was good, but was it *that* good? Yes the visuals were new, refreshing and nice to look at but I felt like the plot was a bit repetitive. I would give it some thought.

Genshiken was a funny and weeb catering anime but it was not 8/10 or above and I don't feel like we should go below that. I would remove it, but I'm not much of a comedy fan.

Psycho-Pass was a good all-rounder but nothing exceptional about it either. I would give it some more thought.

  No.3165

>>3164
Out of the four you critisized I'd agree with Black Rock Shooter, Genshiken (even though I liked it) and Psycho Pass not fitting but I'd definitely opt for Mononoke to stay on this list. Anime is a medium which connects the storytelling with audio/visuals and many fail to do just that. Even very well renowned anime like LOGH might be great stories but they aren't great animations, the visual aspect seems just like an addition not a necessary part to the whole. Mononoke to me exploits the medium to its fullest. The whole style befits the period in which most of the series is set. The choreography is also inspired by both the Kabuki and Noh tradition which gives the whole series a very theatrical feel. The way the characters sit, stand and talk. Even the "fights" seem more like dancing you'd encounter in one of those theatres. You say the story is repetitive but then I don't see how that's bad if there's enough variation. There are shows which are repetitive yet they utilize this and use it as their strength like Utena, Princess Tutu, Aria, Mushishi. It also makes great use of the stories to represent themes like repressed emotions, conforming to society's norms, exploiting power and so on. Overall I'd say it's both a great story, but more important a great anime.

Anyways, I'd also definitely add Eve no Jikan to the list.
>>3162
I agree, Penguindrum should be added.
>>3161
Again agreed: Madoka, Time of Eve and Berserk are great shows.

I still don't exactly see how this list is supposed to be different than any other random recommendation list.

Ok, so I'll post the anime that I think don't deserve to be on this list, most of the shows are rather good but these though aren't bad necessarily just pale in comparison: yuri yuri, steins gate, steamboy, sidonia no kishi, shirobako, silent mobius, ruroni kenshin, psycho pass, paprika (all the other kon films are better and if anything should be on this list), nanoha, memories, little witch academia, higurashi, blood the last vampire, black rock shooter

and start adding then. Maybe NGE, maybe something from Makoto Shinkai for the graphics kicks. Maybe Jin-Roh which dissapointed me so much but still possess lainchan-like feeling.

I think these should go:

>shirobako

It was fun and all but not worth the list.

>Isshuukan Friends

Why is this here? Average at best it was only pulled forward by the good character design and art definitely needs to go. The concept was kind of dumb and it got boring.

>Little Witch Academia

One 30 min movie that was a anime version of harry potter it should go although it was pretty good. Death Billiards was better anyway.

>FLCL

I personally dislike it and would not put it on the list but I know many people would disagree.

I might look into more detail tomorrow to pick the ones that are harder to judge top 3 definitely have to go. Haven't seen some which is surprising will finish them all by next year. Sadly this thread will probably still be up.

>>3198

You're right. Putting a rec list in alphabetical order doesn't really make sense.

  No.3394

Things that should be cut:
Elfen Lied. I absolutely hate the word overrated but this series has to be the most perfect example of it.

Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou. That's not even an anime yet.

Shirobako. I feel that Shirobako is the kind of show you're supposed to watch when you're already very invested into anime to get the maximum enjoyment of, so it's kind of a subjective recommendation and less of a general one.



Things that should be added:
Mahou Shoujo Madoka★Magica. A darker take on the magical girl genre. It looks and sounds amazing and the story is tight to boot.

Ping Pong the Animation. A sports show that's really about the characters and less the sport. Amazing characters combined with great music with a very distinctive art style that makes the anime feel like a moving comic book.

I have only cut a few I was going to cut 20 more but I want to know in which direction this list is going. Are we making a specific lainchan related anime or just anime that newfags should watch. I personally prefer the first one but not just /cyb/ anime but also a mixture of genres and not completely entry level stuff like Death Note.

The ones I have cut so far are either because they are to short, do not exist or are a terrible adaption or just do not fit in the list I really like a few I've cut so I kind of want to leave them but I don't think we should have more than 40 series.

I think it would also be smart to remove movies and make a separate list for them leaving this one anime only.

I will make further changes once I get the approval of a few lainons. I check this thread multiple times a day so if everybody posts often even with little suggestions. We should be able to complete this list in a few weeks.

I will also make a chart once we have finished.

Average cyb:

Must watch anime:
Haruhi (Philosophy as deep as you're willing to dig, cult classic)
Dokes (sailor moon finally getting what she deserves: a crazy lesbian stalker willing to make the entire world suffer endlessly for her crush)

Above average generic:
Battle prpgrammer shortwave (computers and cladsic nerd cultute)

Thanks for this. Can you guys recommend more anime that takes itself seriously and isn't targeted towards teenage boys? Stuff like Monster, SEL and GITS?

Hey, OP, a little question; was their a particular reason why Rurouni Kenshin was put onto the list?

As a major fan of the series, I wanted to know. Is it nostalgia? I know part of my love for the series is for that reason. Or maybe it's because of how strangely subversive it is? Or how it deals with different types of ideals and how they conflict with each other?

I know I could easily talk all day about this series.
