>Dummy thicc senpai
>Joshikousei no Mudazukai
>Kira kira Happy Hirake Cocotama (seriously)

Kinda. I suppose it falls upon us oldfags to explain the memes and traditions of ancient 420chan/a/. Mine weren't particularly clever, but ideally you want to use a
humorous synopsis
instead of the proper title. If you get the joke it can give you the satisfied feeling of solving a puzzle, despite the fact that the official names are often less informative than the "joke" names. For instance, what tells you more about what the show is about and why you should watch it:
"Tejina-senpai", "Magical Senpai", or "DUMMY thicc senpai"?
"Sounan desu ka", "Are You Lost", or "Cute Girls Doing Survivalist Things"?
"Tsuujou Kougeki ga Zentai Kougeki de Ni-kai Kougeki no Okaasan wa Suki Desu ka?", "Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-target Attacks?", or "MILFsekai"?

Most people can't read Japanese even in romaji, so this typically conveys more information. Even if you DO read Japanese they oftentimes choose long names that don't convey information about the show's contents anyway. Plus there is the added benefit of increased socialization. If you don't know what something is, you can ask and either OP or someone else will usually be happy to tell you. I suppose one might consider this a sort of trick to get more of a conversation going. In any case you can usually just lurk for a little while and someone else will post something about it like >>1879 did. Btw did you notice how he affectionately called it "Okaasan Online" even though that's not the official title?

This technique isn't always appropriate of course. Joshikousei no Mudazukai aka The Wasteful Days of High School Girls basically says what you get right on the tin. For less popular shows like Kira kira Happy Hirake Cocotama that don't even make it on the Summer 2019 anime chart, the true name is more useful. Plus the show's contents are a little esoteric so it'd be hard to come up with an "affectionate joke name" for it. I'm sure you can think up a million informative joke names for DBZ, but try doing that for something like Tatami Galaxy.

I hope you found my explanation helpful and continue this proud imageboard tradition so we can return this great community to its former glory!

its trash and so r u

I haven't seen any of these yet but I have been thinking about checking out Are You Lost

Would you say it's worth a joint and a watch?

Its alright. Cute girls doing cute survival things. Bit of dark humor here and there and its a short so each episode is only like 12 minutes long
The characters are pretty bland and one note, so are most of the comedy bits but I've learned a couple fun survival facts from it.
Short run time means you wont be wasting too much time by watching it if you decide to, just dont expect to be blown away

I don't really expect any anime to blow me away or pull me in too strongly anymore, the gems are really hidden in the rough ya gnome saiyan??

So when I do find one that is great it's that much more of a treat. But if it kills the time and gives a good chuckle then it's worth watching for me.

Yeah don't expect any of my selects to blow you away; they're all light-hearted fun. The most recent comedic masterpiece I can think of is Zombieland Saga from last fall season. If you're looking for something more serious, Made in Abyss, which I watched all in one sitting. For what it's worth, I discovered and binged Made in Abyss on dextromethorphan then immediately rewatched it sober. Don't read anything about it before watching because there are a few surprises. If you don't like it by ep 5 though, then drop it. And whatever you do, don't watch the MiA dub.

I enjoy both comedy and serious stuff, it just depends on my mood.

I'll be sure to check those out as long as they're on crunchyroll. I won't have any extra money to buy hardcopies for a little while.

What's wrong with isekai, Albert? Don't you want to be transported to a magical realm full of adventurous titty mages and dangerous ara ara mom-sters?

Another anime that would've been ten times better if you genderbend all the Male and female characters.

Welp, season's over. What's your AOTY? My subjective pick is Cute Girls Doing Survivalist Things, and my objective pick is Vinland Saga (I barely even watched it but I'm aware it's objectively good).

Kimetsu no Yaiba anime of the season for me. It's been a while since I felt excited for Shounen story but it grew on me the more I watched it.
