Do you have a favorite type of candy?

I think my favorite is probably hard butterscotch candies.

Surely chocolates are cheating. There's no way any candy can compete with a good gourmet choco.

I was reminded that another year has passed since the last time the /qa/ anime chart was updated, so I thought it was as good a time as ever to bring it back, update it, and improve on it a bit in the process.

The format for deciding on picks this year will be the same as the last with the addition of maybe singling out a specific anime of each year to be the most /qa/ anime of the year. For the current candidates that should be easy since there's only 4 of them, but for this year we'll have to conclude all the seasonal polls first and then afterwards decide.

The polls will be made separately and then linked in the thread with at least 3 days allotted for people to decide on winners, and I'll make a new poll for each season every day, starting with Winter 2021 today. To not make cheating so easy I'll make it so an IP needs at least 3 posts to vote, which shouldn't really be hard for anyone I hope. Also the AOTY polls will probably all be at the end or sometime in-between since they shouldn't be as hard of a decision.

What kind of anime did you watch as a teenager? What I remember watching: Naruto, Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fullmetal Panic, Death Note, Hellsing, Devil May Cry, Elfen Lied, Chobits, Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Desert Punk, To Love-Ru, Rosario + Vampire, School Days, Fate/stay night, Higurashi, Spice and Wolf, Darker than Black, Bakemonogatari, etc.

The only one I'm ashamed of is Naruto, but it wasn't that bad until the chunin exams in my opinion. I dropped the manga when the gay dude with the paint jutsu showed up.

This is an age revealing question, so be careful with that. I think it's easy to tell I'm in my late twenties from this post.

Well, you may have gone a little bit overboard, but I think the chuuni thing is normal and great. I definitely had some of it, although for me it was centered at Neo from the Matrix and Alucard from Castlevania. Still have my SotN wall scroll!
Imagination is what makes life bearable and if we didn't still have it we couldn't play video games!

>>88352
Death Note was definitely cool and L especially. You've got a guy going up against god powers merely with his own intelligence, and of course Light himself doing the justice/vengeance thing that everyone fantasizes about. L also had strange quirks in his personality and habits that showed teenagers that you could still do great things even if you were a bit weird. Really, it was a perfect recipe for people in that awkward age.

Anyway, I just remembered that I saw parts of Ninja Scroll somewhere around age 13-15. It was on some movie channel that wasn't HBO or Cinemax. I liked the boobies, but the violence was a bit much and then I changed channel after I saw some golem monster rape a girl. I didn't and still don't like that stuff.

I never did anything anime related but I sang german ww2 era songs and medieval chants while in class which i don't know if it could be really considered chuuni but it's definitely cringe inducing when I think back on it

The pain itself is the love of the pain, the main ecological problems, but I give this kind of time to fall down, so that some great pain and pain. For the purpose of coming to a minimum, who of ours should exercise any employment except to take advantage of the consequences from it. But the pain in the film is irure to condemn, in the pleasure it wants to escape from the pain of being clum in pain, none result. They are the exceptions the blinds yearn for, they do not see, they are the ones who abandon their responsibilities to the fault that is soothing the soul's hardships.

Do you read manga often? How do you know what to look for? There seems a far greater variety than with anime, and a big dissuader for me is seeing unfinished translations.

I used to read alot more manga/doujinshi (mostly touhou stuff) but now I just keep up with a couple that ive been reading for awhile like Oniichan ha Oshimai! or Boys Abyss, every once and awhile I'll stumble across something that I pick up like Kami eshi JK to OL fujoshi. (though in the case of that one I read it when it was a oneshot and ended up realizing awhile later that it got fully serialized) I still read manga that has already finished publishing like Girls Last Tour but its rather infrequent, I should be spending the time for manga (though now I mostly spend it watching anime) translating tenshi no drop past one chapter but I've gotten busy, lazy, and the next chapter has a kanji I cant figure out which is important to translating a lot of it.
If we are talking about physical collections I have the first 13 volumes of Zestubou Sensei, I feel like you engage much more with something when you are holding it in your hand. I decided that I would start the Zestubou Sensei and I was felt like I was reading chapter after chapter, then when I transitioned to reading online I would skip around a lot and spend less time appreciating the art despite the fact that its my favorite manga. I still have only read about 1/3rd of it because at some point in the middle I lost track of which chapters I have read and havent read.

I had no idea this existed until now. It seems to have been based on that 'enby' meme which a mod forced on 4/qa/ and [s4s] back then. It's already dead and it was made on 2021, so it only lasted a few months. This late era of 4/qa/ (that I didn't browse to know anything about) was pretty strange.

From what I understand from using the 4can happenings thread back then, that enbie thing was forced on [s4s] with assistance (or by) a mod and after enough people got mad at it on [s4s] it was moved to another board. It certainly wasn't the first and won't be last time a 4chan staff member majorly misreads a board and its community. This is why it's so important that mods are a part of the community.

Come to think of it, I think I might be responsible for the revitalization of machikado mazoku manga in the west.
Around the time the first season started airing, I found that anons said that only the raw of volume 1 was available and only the first few chapters were translated and there was a lack of interest because the rest of volumes weren't available.
However, I found that the Chinese fan translation was already into volume 3 at that time, and I found a download of 02-04 raw volumes on a Chinese forum. That download was already over a year old at that time so I wonder why none of them were available on the Western internet.
So I reuploaded them and posted it on 4/a/. Soon after I did that some other anons repacked them into cbz and uploaded them on nyaa where they were the first upload of the manga. The translation effort resumed, and the rest was history.

Do you have any experiences like this, where you found something on the regional internet and wondered why no one in the west seemed to know about it?

 No.87798

I've never really been that in front of the scene or anything to really have that experience myself in untranslated manga, nor do I really speak anything but EN/JP so other sites wouldn't really help either... Although, I do know that I've found a bunch of H-games in JP only that seemed too good to be left untranslated, but I can't tell if that's really an unfound thing or a it's popular but nobody wants to translate it thing. Hell, was going to post a nice eroge I knew of that didn't seem at all known when I first posted it, but looking now there's a MTL on f95zone with a bunch of pages that started a bit around when I first found the game so it was already popular when I found it.

I haven't contributed to anything since 2018 maybe. ;_;
OP I'm sure you did influence the board but Machikado Mazoku is so good that I'm sure that it would have obtained a good fanbase no matter what, even if it may not have been as early.
