2007: The Fox News reportage on 4chan (hackers on steroids), Rickrolling being conceived as a meme and Gurren Lagann, Lucky Star, Clannad, Kaiji, Kodomo no Jikan, Baccano, Minami-ke, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Moetan, Potemayo, School Days, Bokurano, Claymore, Nodame Cantabile, Darker than Black, Gundam 00, Devil May Cry, Denno Coil, Mononoke, 5cm per second, Kara no Kyoukai, Eva 1.0 and Hidamari Sketch airing. Gurren Lagann was huge on /b/ at the time with the ROW ROW FIGHT THE POWER memes and stuff. Katawa Shoujo was also apparently conceived as an idea on /a/ in this year. This is when I started using imageboards. I can't go back further than this.

2008: The channology crap, the creation of /jp/ as the sewed off conjoined twin of /a/, GEASS SUNDAYS, Spice and Wolf, Rosario + Vampire, To Love Ru, Kannagi, Toradora, Chi's Sweet Home, Strike Witches, Hyakko, Soul Eater, Jigoku Shoujo, Chaos;Head, Ga-Rei-Zero, xxxHOLiC, Detroit Metal City, Kissxsis, Macross Frontier, Gurren Lagann movie and Index airing. This is when I first started using /a/.

2009: The Boxxy shit on /b/, Bakemonogatari, Umineko, Railgun, Redline, K-ON, Saki, Sengoku Basara, Kimi ni Todoke, Maria Holic, Sora no Otoshimono, Seiken no Blacksmith (the infamous katana gif), Kämpfer, Nyan Koi, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Fairy Tail, FMAB, Hetalia, Redline, Gurren Lagann movie, KnK 7, Eva 2.0 and Haruhi S2 airing. Also the Lanced Jack/Taiga mass shitposting on /a/ and /v/ which culminated in moot changing everyone's names to Lanced Jack and Taiga on /a/ and leaking Lanced Jack's tripcode. Very chaotic year.

2010: Nothing special happens that I can recall. Oreimo, Amagami SS, Angel Beats, Durara, Soremachi, Nyaruko, Arawaka, Seitokai Yakuindomo, Panty & Stocking, Ika Musume, Shiru Sekai, Sora no Woto, Bakuman, Tatami Galaxy, Katanagatari, Heroman, Shiki, Yosuga no Sora, Kiss×sis, Highschool of the Dead, Mitsudomoe, Heartcatch Precure, Milky Holmes, Eden of the East and Haruhi movie airs. Boring year.

2011: Madoka, Yuru Yuri, Nichijou, Usagi Drop, Steins;Gate, Fate/Zero, Carnival Phantasm, Deadman Wonderland, Mirai Nikki, Kaiji S2, Denpa Onna, Hanasaku Iroha, Hyouge Mono, Chihayafuru, Gosick, Guilty Crown, Penguindrum, Haganai, [email protected], Anohana, Kore wa Zombie, Dog Days, Majikoi, Fate UBW movie and Infinite Stratos airing and Watamote becoming popular on /a/ and /v/, perhaps resulting in the anime adaptation later. Also, galo sengen, fukkireta, constanza.jpg, gachimuchi, etc happening on /v/ at the time. This is a year most /v/ users remember fondly. /pol/ is also made in this year after the deletion of /new/. This is when I started actually using /jp/, I would just occasionally lurk it before.

2012: Katawa Shoujo is released. Sword Art Online airs, popularizing the crappy isekai genre in that style. Girls und Panzer, OniAi, Little Busters, Medaka Box, Chunibyo, Hyouka, Another, Jinrui wa Suitai, Kill Me Baby, Acchi Kocchi, Accel World, High School DxD, Teekyu, Moretsu Pirates, Wolf Children, Eva 3.0, Nichibros, Symphogear, Magi, Mysterious Girlfriend X, Psycho-Pass, Shinsekai yori, Robotics;Notes, Upotte, Joshiraku, Kokoro Connect, Jormungand, Pet na Kanojo, Berserk movie, Muv-Luv Alternative and Jojo also airs.

2013: The downfall of /a/ and /jp/. /jp/ is splintered into numerous different spinoffs and moot destroys /a/ with N/a/ruto. He also told everyone at the 13th anniversary panel that /jp/ was "the new /b/" and for everyone to go post there, resulting in the board title being changed into "Weaponized /a/" and then "MISUNDERSTOOD GENUISES". I guess he was pissed at the shitposting happening there and the users constantly challenging and insulting him every time he went there. Other boards such as /mu/ also go to shit in this year. 13 is the bad luck number after all. Love Live, SnK, Kill la Kill, Inferno Cop, Nagi no Asukara, Valvrave, Golden Time, Yahari, Non Non Biyori, Kin-iro Mosaic, Prisma Illya, Date A Live, Log Horizon, Yuyushiki, Love Lab, Strike the Blood, Machine-Doll, Samurai Flamenco, GJ bu, Kotoura-san, Garden of Words, The Wind Rises, Little Witch Academia, Madoka Rebellion, Sasami-san, Hentai Ouji, Noucome, Watamote, Tamako Market, Kyokai no Kanata and Free! airs (this one caused a huge meltdown on /a/ at the time from KyoAni moefags).

2014: Gamergate and the creation of 8chan. Chaika (shocking truth!), Nisekoi, Fate UBW, No Game No Life, Nozaki-kun, Amagi, Cross Ange, Wakaranai Ken, Grisaia, Nanatsu no Taizai, Tokyo Ghoul, Space Dandy, Knights of Sidonia, Shirobako, Pupa, Sakura Trick, Black Bullet, Ping Pong, GochiUsa, Barakamon, Akame ga Kill, Sabagebu, Terra Formars and Tonari no Seki-kun airs.

2015: moot sells 4chan to hiro, /qa/ is made. Owari no Seraph (Shinoa!), One-Punch Man, Ore Monogatari, Euphonium, Shokugeki no Soma, Nagato Yuki-chan, Kantai Collection, Charlotte, Shimoneta, Working, Death Parade, Wakakozake, Monster Musume, Assassination Classroom, Plastic Memories, Overlord, DanMachi, Yamada-kun, Etotama, Umaru-chan, Kekkai Sensen, Prison School, Show by Rock, Gakko Gurashi, Valkyrie Drive, Psycho-Pass movie and Jitsu wa Watashi wa airs.

2016: the election. /qa/ is used as a dumpster for MLP and "delete /pol/" spam, but Pikarifag and the NNB guy (I'm not sure if it's the same person or not) valiantly spam and push their threads away, paving the way for 2D/Random. I also helped them a bit with that. Amanchu (Pikari!), Konosuba (Megumin!), Dagashi Kashi, Flip Flappers, Galko-chan, Re:Zero, Gate, Space Patrol Luluco, Boku no Hero Academia, Sakamoto, Flying Witch, ReLIFE, Mob Psycho, New Game, Tanaka-kun, Drifters, Amaama to Inazuma, Sekkou Boys, Kizumonogatari, Your Name and Koe no Katachi airs.

2017: /qa/ morphs into 2D/Random. Kemono Friends (friends!), Gabriel Dropout, Blend S, Eromanga Sensei, Urara Meirocho, Tanya the Evil, Dragon Maid, Demi-chan, Kuzu no Honkai, Tsugumomo, Akashic Records, Sakura Quest, Hinako Note, WorldEnd, Tsuki ga Kirei, Re:Creators, Inuyashiki, Magus Bride, Yuki Yuna, Netoju no Susume, Shojo Shumatsu Ryoko, Made in Abyss, Konohana Kitan, Hajimete no Gal, Mahojin Guru Guru, Ballroom e Yokoso, Aho-Girl, Kakegurui, Blame! movie and Saekano airs. This was a really good year in retrospect. Lined up perfectly with /qa/'s transformation.

I don't really care about the rest as I'm too disgruntled with their current state. You guys fill it in for me.


Small error: put the Fate UBW movie in 2011 instead of 2010. Please point out any other mistakes if you see them.

Also, how could I have forgotten about Aokana (Asuka!) and Phantom World in 2016. I guess I was too focused on Pikari there.


What do you mean by relevant events and anime?
Just popular shows or shows that fit with the major events that happened at the time?
Also are try to follow the linage of /qa/-kissu from 4chan?

>Just popular shows or shows that fit with the major events that happened at the time?
Both. It's just anime that was relevant on /a/ at the time for the most part. I might've forgotten a few though.

>Also are try to follow the linage of /qa/-kissu from 4chan?
Yeah, I guess so.


File:__kurashina_asuka_ao_no_ka….png (626.46 KB,953x862)

to be fair the Aokana anime wasn't that remarkable outside of our little corner
the most interesting part of the anime is how it almost completely sidelines the mc and just focuses on the girls compared to the VN
also Mami Kawada sings the opening but that's in the VN too

>I don't really care about the rest as I'm too disgruntled with their current state. You guys fill it in for me.

Star Twinkle, you fool!!
It was the transitory year where it started on 4/qa/ and finished on kissu. I'm not generally aware of what's popular as a whole, just what people post about here.


Err, 2019 that is.

2020: /jp/ went even further down the shitter with vtubers becoming insanely popular, and now allowed outside of the containment generals. The board became one of the top 10 fastest boards on 4chan, and *the* fastest board during major vtuber events. Somali to Mori no Kamisama, Houkago Teibou Nisshi, Murenase! Seton Gakuen, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou, Deca-Dence, Ishuzoku Reviewers, and Kakushigoto... I think? I don't know what the /a/norms were into; I just watched whatever struck my fancy.

When did those those Dragon Ball (definitely not)general threads start becoming a problem on /a/? I remember those posters being the absolute worst of the worst - literally manchildren with the mentally of 10 year old schoolboys.


I doubt anything caused anywhere close to as much of a commotion during 2020 as Higurashi and Ishuzoku did.


Star Twinkle is one of the highest rated precures right below Heartcatch I believe. So I'd say it was pretty big.


I avoided using imageboards for most of that timeline after around 2010 and only came back to 8chan around 2015 or 2016. So all this stuff about /qa/ is new to me except for when I've read pictures from here talking about history of /qa/.
Also all this anime is always much more recent than I expect it to be, like panty and stocking came out in 2010? that means people were talking about it as it released. There's this persistent wrong impression I have in my mind that a lot of notable anime are things that came out in the 90s or 00s and people talk about them later because they had staying power, as if every anime was like Eva or Sailor Moon that way.

>When did those those Dragon Ball (definitely not)general threads start becoming a problem on /a/?
When they didn't leave after it stopped airing I guess? So 2018. Dragon Ball is extremely popular, so discussing it there isn't really a problem (although DBS isn't something I would ever watch a single episode of), but turning it into a cancerous general full of retardation for no reason is.


File:machikado4.webp (28.92 KB,780x439)

you forgot 2013: I got quints in a thread I didn't like and derailed it


File:aku no potato.png (1.83 MB,1117x897)

Listing some more shows that I forgot:
2009: Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom

2011: Astarotte no Omocha, Mayo Chiki, Ro-Kyu-Bu

2012: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun, Tasogare Otome x Amnesia, Ano Natsu de Matteru, Inu x Boku SS, Binbougami ga, Aikatsu

2013: Aku no Hana, Hataraku Maou-sama, Yama no Susume, Mondaiji-tachi, Gatchaman Crowds

2014: Kimi no Uso, Mahouka, Zankyou no Terror, Parasyte, Noragami, Inou-Battle, Mikakunin, Mekakucity Actors, Sekai Seifuku, D-Frag, Witch Craft Works, WIXOSS, Trinity Seven, Hanayamata, Shingeki no Bahamut, Pripara, Psycho-Pass 2, Mushishi S2

2015: Shirayuki-hime, Osomatsu, Koufuku Graffiti, Yurikuma Arashi, DBS, Somera-chan (homosexuality isn't right)

2016: Boku dake ga Inai Machi/ERASED, Berserk, Kiznaiver, 3-gatsu no Lion, Netoge no Yome, Orange, Ajin

2017: Houseki no Kuni, Youkoso Jitsuryoku, new Kino, Tsuredure Children, Imouto sae Ireba Ii, Gamers!, Masamune-kun no Revenge, Sword Oratoria, Nyanko Days, Fate/Apocrypha, FSN: Heaven's Feel

Some of those are so obvious that they went over my head.


>Aku no Hana


Thought I put Aldnoah.Zero (2014) before but it apparently isn't there. Also, Black Rock Shooter (2012), Uchuu Kyodai/Space Brothers (2012, confused me because it aired for two whole years straight) Gargantia (2013) and Kakuchou Shoujo-kei Trinary (2017). The last one isn't really relevant, only the "PaPa TuTu WaWa" song from it.


Gatchaman Crowds was 2014? Dang.


File:1436740528684.gif (58.23 KB,500x313)

2013. And then S2 aired in 2015. Also, thought I included Junketsu no Maria for 2015 but it isn't there.
