Same here, damn, I still remember the first 2 weeks after the split. /jp/ was new and still had real content about the Japanese, 3D pig delicious and more Japanese awesomeness like Takeshi and stuff. But now /jp/ just fails, no more true content, only Touhou, Touhou imagedumps and some other VA's like F/SN. Nothing based IRL.
/a/ was so shit at the time. Naruto and bleachthreads in more abundance than we have Geass threads on sunday. The /a/ just before the split was good too, at least better that today just because the mods didn't delete every thread that was slightly off topic (what fucking topic) like today.
/a/ has recovered slightly, but the recent rising of sagefags, shitty trolls and tripfags that only got their name for attentionwhoring and trolling (yes I'm talking about Anon of Philadelpia, kil urself fagort).
Also the for example the Lucky Star/TTGL etc. question. It is getting really obvious that people are saging every Lucky Star thread just to be cool. I kinda liked it and I can see why other people don't, and respect them. But srsly, the new faggots saging just for a title...jesus fuck, even /b/ used to be better.
