Misconceptions in this board:

1) Stand Alone Complex/Laini/Monster/Evangelion/Texholyze is a complex, intellectual animation
2) People that like intellectual anime are elitist assholes

It really bugs me that people's kneejerk reaction when being told that they're stupid is "well you're an elitist go watch your art shit films".

Listen, you don't like being asked questions. You watch anime to forget about your life. That's fine. But what's even funnier is that SAC/Lain/Evangelion/Monster is no different than Vandread or Ouran Host Club. Sure, it's a bit more complex, but it's still got that mainstream bow.

Some people are pathetic. Call me elitist, I just can't care. It's sick that people look down on intelligence and complexity (even though most of the shows awarded by /a/ barely represents these). Probably the same assholes that called people "dorks" and "nerds" in high school.
