“K-ON! is Our Raison D’être” & Other Anime Truisms

mio-oppai-testing.jpg

The conclusion of K-ON! has brought a new epithet for the series, “K-ON! is Our Raison D’être”, which has been accepted as official by 2ch.

However, there are many other such anime truisms circulating on 2ch, and a list of them has been circulating for years. Periodically, new anime are added to the list by a decision making process which is not fully understood, but as it has given rise to such self-evident (to 2ch at any rate) truisms as “Clannad is Life“, “Touhou is Religion” and “Hatsune Miku is the Light of Truth” it is clearly worthy of further study.

Below you can see the full version of the list in its latest iteration, fully translated.

The actual process by which these are made generally appears to be someone using the phrase or one similar to it in a thread, after which the line is approved by some unknown process and someone posts the list with the latest addition and “←New!” written next to it…
