Slice of life ruined anime, it was fine when it was about mundane comedy, but now people just use it to simulate life experiences and get the chemical rush without the benefits of actually having friends/gf/job etc.

A lot of people are never going to have all that.

So you're saying it was fine before 1985? I doubt that you watch that kind of anime, but if you do it would be safe to say that you don't like anime in it's modern sense.
>simulate life experiences and get the chemical rush without the benefits of actually having friends/gf/job etc.
And why are you "talking" on a textboard instead of with actual people? I'm doing it because I have no friends/gf/job etc.

because i have my down times like every body else, i like to post on this board when im on the train or something ,
contrary to your sofl animes friends are not doing everything together all the time, thats dependency, not friendship.

yea i like to watch old anime but thats not here nor there, there is tons of sofl anime that have a central theme other than simulating friendships, sports animes being the most popular type after the fanservice ones think.

my post was wrongly worded though, i meant to say the broader community not anime itself

Dammit man, I just wanna experience those normalfag days of highschool that I never did, alright? I didn't go on a date with a girl, I never kissed a girl or anything. I barely even hung out with my few friends because I had to go home immediately to take care of my sick dad. Just let me have this one thing, okay?

I can't or can "let you have it" these are just words on the internet that have no power over your life.

Im sorry about your dad, but its never to lateUnless you're over 60 Go out there and make some friends brother, put some of that simulated experience to good use.

It's not quite so easy for everyone. Not only is it far superior to real life, there is a reason people watch slice of life in the first place.

how would you know if you never had the experiences in the first place?

which is?

Haha good point
>which is?
Because they don't have the ability to just go out and make friends like a chad, or don't believe they can do so because of learned helplessness. You're basically asking "why can't you just go out and have sex?". Intense periods of shame, regret, and isolation can get to a guy.

So what.
Nobody cares they're still living their lives.

Has slice of life rotted your brain so far that you think you're the MC?Is a harem of girls suddenly gonna appear and make your life better? Do something or do not.

Its your life, and since you have no friends/job/gf, nobody cares for it except you.

>why can't you just go out and have sex?

I did not write this at all wtf
All I Said is that simulating experiences its self destructive in the long run and for you to try something else before is too late.

Nobody cares about you if they don't know you, real life people may get to know you,
fake anime girls characters never will they're just images.

But i guess it makes a lot of money even if its a bit exploitative, must be great, making the same stories over and over again and still raking in the big bucks, i just with some of that money went to some actual creatives or some experimental projects. meh

Well luckily you don't have a say in what people can or cannot watch. Ultimately, you can't generalize what you can do to what everyone else can or should do.


>i just with some of that money went to some actual creatives or some experimental projects. meh
If you don't like it, why can't you just not watch it? What is with you people thinking that because you personally don't like something, it is broken and must be FIXED to better suit your needs?

?
I am just stating an opinion not telling what you should or can do, this is an anonymous board, all it is its some words on a screen, the internet isn't serious business and you should not base your life on what I or anybody else on the internet say, I have no power over you, I just think there is a better option, simulate your life away if it makes you happy.


>If you don't like it, why can't you just not watch it?
I don't its garbage.

>What is with you people thinking that because you personally don't like something, it is broken and must be FIXED to better suit your needs?

I don't think it should suit me, I just think its exploitative of an weak demographic >because of learned helplessness.

You don't have to seethe over an opinion either, it does not affect you in anyway, I can say I want to defund all solf studios, how does that affect you or the industry in general? Grow up.

So if you went and said "uh yeah god is bad because it teaches conformity and I am an anti-conformist", how do you think a religious person would feel about that? Perhaps they will be happy and embrace you. why do people talk about things that they have no idea about?
>Grow up.
"that'll show 'em. I get to shut him up and feel like a grown up!"

I don't know what that means, I just told you to do whatever you want to.

If they're a reasonable person at a place that encourages discussion they would discuss it.
If they're a nut person they would freak out and start accusing anybody that they just don't get it.

This is a REAL LIFE experience I had being in a Religious debate group. But I guess its hard to relate when you don't have any.

This is a place that encourages discussion, not freaking out

The fact that you would put your solf animes in the same field as religion discussion made me chuckle though

please seek help

or don't who cares

Yeah, i kinda of agree, its kinda of a double whammy, all of those studios exploiting those people, and those people willingly giving up their lives for some dopamine rush, its pathetic. And as the years go by the worse it gets.

@18

Why would anybody do that? There are many many new series that aren't slice of life, I think that ops point was that there is a significant amount of people who watch slice of life and use it as cope(Which is sad but true).

I for one see no reason to watch them since they all follow the same plot more or less with the same character type over and over again, There is no overreaching plot or significant goals to slice of life anime most of the time, which i guess kinda works so you're not really engaged with the story only with the characters, that way there no expectations and everything is predictable since they are defined by their characters archetypes rather than 3 dimensional(lol) personalities, tsundere be tsundere, main character be loser but loved, milf has big milk etc.
Easy concept to sell with minimum effort since the character sheets come pre made and you can reuse maps, enemies and plots with just little tweaks here and there.
Doesn't really matter though since it makes loads of money and its all about getting them dolla bills to fuck jav pornstars.
