I agree. There's only 1 anime I'm watching this season (The K-ON one, i can't remember the name) and Dragon Ball Super.
It's gunna be a horrible 3 months.

I recommend reporting your own thread and asking the mods to close it. I get the feeling that this thread was originally meant to as more of a quick venting than anything else. If nothing else, a restart will allow you to clear up several stark problems that you've made, regarding your thread title and OP. Your thread title is erroneous in nature, your opening line in the OP literally states that you expect reassurance over a fall line-up, and then you've emboldened an incorrect statement in bright red. The end result is that your OP makes it sound like you, dare I say it, are whining, that you are pushing a faulty premise of what the Fall line-up is, and that (as you've pointed out) you only watch romantic comedies.



I feel like you may have put a little too much thought into this. Unless he's already changed something and it was *REALLY* bad before, I can't imagine that there's that much damage control to be done, haha. His post doesn't seem all that bad to me... I don't think it's going to get the outcry that you are anticipating.

Personally, I'm not very enthused about the BL, or BL-esq stuff that seems to be gaining popularity. I don't mind rom-com's, some of them are even extremely good (like Toradora), but when dudes start lusting after each other I have to draw the line

When it comes to thread-making, it's best to sit down and really plan what you want the thread to be like. The title and OP are critical in setting the mood, so anticipating how people will react to them is dire, and any blunders will be magnified in people's responses.



lol - is that what I'm supposed to do? I would never post again.

Nah, I didn't mean that his OP was horrendously anger-inducing, or anything. By "damage control," I meant him constantly clarifying what he meant and clearing up his mistakes. Also, him possibly snapping at more people for criticizing him for having sounded "whiny," the way he did with Akage. Nothing dramatic, so much as redundant. I get the impression that he may get caught in a loop, or something. Given that he's already explained several of his little "oopsies," I assumed that he regrets his OP. Plus, he's pretty much answered himself, so I get the impression that the thread doesn't serve much purpose anymore.

As for the BL thing; I personally don't mind. I'm usually fine with whatever, as long as I'm entertained. Plus, I sometimes just don't feel like looking at anime chicks, since the characterizations of female anime characters don't usually impress me.

Yeah, this season seems stock full of BL/reverse harem and magical girl shows, so I don't have much to watch as far as simulcasts go.

There's not a lot this season in general that leaped out at me.

Get your act together Japan and make me some better shows.

I'm not a big fan of girly romance either, but you could just take a break from watching anime this fall.

P.S I rather be rewatching American cartoons this fall.

honestly, you should find interest in more than just one genre, imo

Once they saturate the market enough with these types of shows and they start losing money, they will change things up again. As long as it's making money back in Japan, they will continue to milk it for all it's worth. Why risk million$ on developing an original show that may tank, when you can keep shoveling out the same low quality garbage, season after season, and have a guaranteed pay day?
