Critics and Connoisseurs

Club Description:

First and foremost, I would like to make it clear that this is not an elitist club. Our goal is to come up a list of highly recommended quality shows that are exemplary either within genre or universally. However, everyone has different standards when it comes to this, so I have made up a short list of basic requirements with the goal of ensuring maximum participation from our members.

We are changing the way our voting works in You Decides. Votes are now being counted automatically so you need to type exactly as it is shown for the system to count your vote. Type #Yes if you want a title to be inducted, type #No if you don't want to see a title inducted, type #IDK if you are not familiar with the title, and type #Abstained if you don't want to vote. Hashtags are mandatory. Bear in mind, though, that your lists will still be checked manually. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

> Because being a dick to shitty animu is fun.

Quite fun for your average Anime Discussion wannabe or the good'ol Boku no Pico mention in an obnoxious Youtube comment. Really out there, a unique fashion for the big bois.
(We've all watched our fair share of shit, but being impressionable by it is certainly stupid)

> I'm at that state in which the only reason I watch anime is either to continue franchises I enjoy or shit on literally a thing I think would be worth shitting on.

You're revolting for a reason. Admittedly trying to be a critic while keeping that close-minded mindset of yours. Your tastes are quite niche and unvaried, you seem to bend towards mecha yet you still haven't watched NGE.

I don't know, you give off a sense of self-entitlement that hardly ever matches what you say, and I know I will regret this comment because you never shut up either.
