Chartfags amazing chart came out recently and so you get the interwebs commenting on the upcoming season across the board. Now usually these conversations fill me with rage because how dismissive people can get just because the promo picture contains a bishojo and fall down the usual path of proclaiming anime to be heading downhill and so on. But instant first glance at this chart shows an interesting development. There is a rather unusual small amount of moe. And boy are the forums a joy to read now!
To paraphrase what about half the people are saying (not that half is a true representation of anime fandom, it’s just the haters are always more vocal)
I’ll watch Angel Beats, (and K-ON S2 obviously) and that’s it. Oh, and Black Rock Shooter but it’s only a bloody OVA. This season sucks
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA *gasp* HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
This is fucking glorious! We all thought we’d never see the end of this moefaggery when K-ON season 2 was announced up comes the season it airs in and it looks rather lonely as the only half-decent moe show out there. Plus, will these moefags really be pleased with seeing what will almost certainly be the exact same material all over again? Serious moe, all they have is Angel Beats. No 4-5 eroge adaptations per season. No crap like 11eyes and Ookami Kakushi, oh definitely not. And to make the whole thing even more glorious, Black Rock Shooter, the show vocaloidfags had gotten all hyped up over, is just an OVA. It’s going to be nothing more than a glorified music video.
As for me? Night Raid, Ironman, Yojohan, Arakawa, Rainbow, Five Leaves, Giant Killing, Hetalia, the list goes on. I don’t normally hate on moefags. On the 1-10 scale of moe-hating, where 1 is ‘moe? meh, uninterested’ and 10 is ‘moe is the cancer that is killing the industry rawr rawr rawr’, I’d rank about a 4, but this is just too hilarious a chance to pass up. The moefags are staring at the chart is disappointment while the rest of us are pretty pleased for a change. So sorry if you’re a moefag…in fact, I’m not sorry. You had your days in paradise. Now move on over and give the rest of us a turn at the wheel.
