Here's the thing, after /a/ and /jp/ was split things got a better in /a/.
No VN discussions
Less non/a/ material
Now, because of that, /a/ is also less crowded.
/a/ has come to the point where they lessen the "sage for Lucky Star/Gurren Lagann/Naruto/Bleach/Akagi/Kaiji/Minami-ke/etc."
Because they're /a/ material, that the fact.
They're /a/ material.
Sure they're shit, but there's still people who like it.
Besides, sage does nothing else but not bump threads.
Only retards think that sage actually does something that will damage the thread.
tl;dr /a/ changed, deal with it or GTFO
