You can also explain what you like or found interesting about it.

I'll begin, in this one scene, which is from an anime for kids, you can be misled into thinking that these two had sex. It gives that impression, which makes a scene that should be sad and romantic, a hilarious one.

Touhou Thread II - 2018 ed.

Talk about Touhou here. I think the OP or something. It's been three months. We've all talked about our favorite characters, so what's your favorite part of the fandom? Do you like the setting the most, the characters the most, the lore the most, the music the most, or, like me, do you just idealize the series like I do?

What are you doing right now to enjoy the series?

Honda's and Toyota's (JP Cars)

I have no clue what is keeping you people from talking about the best contribution Japan has brought into the Americas.
Personally, I like any 90s Honda Coupe just as long as it's possible to rice up to 500+ horsepower with at least 50 pounds of torque. The Honda Del Sol was by far my childhood dream car, but I ended up settling for a Honda CRX my parents gave me.

Any Toyota fans out there too? Toyota has been going down the drain in terms of fun factor. I can't wait until Toyota's reliability goes down too to the point where Toyota stops production in America alltogether like Toshiba.

And of course, Mazda is doing just fine.

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

The consequences of anime as a whole becoming mainstream.

I feel like there needs to be a thread made about this. I know this has been talked about many times since 2016 but even then I think this topic is still very neglected because the consequences aren't noticeable on the entirety of Anime yet. There's just something really aggravating about low-status men loosing one of the few hobbies that they could actually enjoy to the very same normalfags and succubi who constantly treat us like dogshit 24/7 and make our daily lives a living hell. We all know the consequences that come with any hobby becoming popular among normgroid NPCs, they start pushing their shitty status-quo bs on it. I'm honestly convinced that by the end of this decade Anime will never have that same feeling as it always did, it'll just become another soulless mainstream form of entertainment to appeal to normalfags. Start expecting chad and his succubi gf to start bragging about going to watch an anime to their NPC social sphere like they do with their shitty MCU movies along with whores cosplaying as your waifu to sell her nudes on the internet to some orbiters (which is already happening to a certain extent). Some oldfags may argue that Anime declined long time ago, and while that's debatable I will say that Anime still retains a very unique feeling to it that is void in the majority of other watchable entertainment and low-status men are the ones that keep and preserve it that way. Mark my words, Anime will be completely unrecognizable around by the end of this decade. Maybe someone can articulate this better than I can but that's the best way I can put it.

New to anime

I've never been into anime and I don't know much about it. However, I decided to check out One Punch Man and I'm enjoying it a fair bit. I've never been able to stick to hobbies or find any passion or purpose in life. Is anime a worthwhile thing to get into? I'm beginning to see why so many people love it. The problem is, it just seems so dense. So much to learn, so many forums, so many niches. It's a little intimidating for a newcomer. Where do I begin? Should I learn Japanese? I've never been able to actually succeed at something like that, but maybe getting into anime would give me a reason too. Will anime improve my life and make me a better person? Will it make the bad things in life, like wageslaving and disease, more bearable?

I await your responses. Thank you, wizards.

Evangelion

Okay, I just finished the the series.
and I have to ask - is this a joke? Like a big decades long meme? I think this was the worst anime I've ever seen. A pseudo-philosophical LARP. Like does it actually have a point? A meaning? Beause I think I just witnessed someone's acid trip.

Unironically is the worldwide fame a LARP? Or is it like with the emperor's new clothes, where nobody mentions that he's actually naked?

What the acual fuck? Either I'm a brainlet retard or I'm the only sane person on earth - but what the fuck did I just watch?

Kids shows

I've found myself watching, and this thread is as much of a confession as much as anything, kids shows. It started off due to the threads we've had about Cardcaptor Sakura and Doremy, but then I realized after watching them that I was feeling…oddly good and optimistic about the world in general. It's weird, because on the one hand I hate watching this stuff because, well, it's so fucking stupid and vapid, but on the other hand I love watching it because it's so goddam relaxing and healing to the soul. I find myself questioning whether this entertainment is purposefully made this way, to emotionally manipulate individuals past a certain age into a state of depression.

Why is this considered "anime" ?

Why is Tower of God considered an anime when it is adapted from a manhwa? If it is solely because a Japanese studio did it then why isn't the same logic applied to Cannon Busters? So basically anyone with money can just pay a studio to adapt their source material and it will be "anime"? Seems like a bad precedent we are setting. How does Japan feel about this?

Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless.

Love Live

https://bilibili.com/video/BV1vV411z7f2?p=2

The new Love Live music video is CUTE CUTE CUTE !!!!!! The song sounds pretty good too.

I'm still undecided about how I feel about the Nijigasaki generation. This latest release looks promising though. I worry that the characters might be poorly written despite the musical content being decent.

The future direction of the franchise seems unclear at this point. I'm hoping that we'll get at least one more anime season for Aqours. It looks like they're starting to release solo music albums for each Aqours member. Hopefully Corona doesn't seriously affect the financial viability of the franchise.

A new generation has been announced recently ("Love Live Superstar"). At this point that generation is a total wild card. I'm cautiously optimistic about the smaller size of the group though (5 members). Larger group sizes mean that some members can be kind of neglected; this is particularly true in the animated content. So a smaller group might have better character development. It'll probably also diminish any scheduling problems with the various seiyuus. On the other hand though, if one character is a bad singer then it will have a stronger effect on the overall quality of the vocals. So hopefully they will all be good vocalists.

Anyway, let's have a thread about MY FAVOURITE FRANCHISE OF ALL TIME. Yay!

No spoilers ITT plz. Let's discuss how much we love Love Live and how we feel about the future of the franchise. Let's post musical content and art, and talk about our favourite characters and ships! Who is the best singer and what are your favourite songs? Will the soul of the franchise and fanbase be preserved as these new generations are introduced?

Gatekeeping Anime

What should be the best measures that we should take to gatekeep anime has hard as it get?
Remember, if you don't believe in gatekeeping, you are a normalgroid.

Some measures that I suggest are:
-Knowing in deep a lot about an anime, visual novel, light novel, novel, manga or game in particular.
-Having a decent knowledge about the medium.
-Being very invested into at least one work.
-Being very invested at least in one fandom.

Is not neccesary to have all these things, but at least one. What more should be added?

Low power level

Have you noted that there are more and more people with low power level in anime community than ever? I mean, even here almost every recent thread is filled with people who don't know what they're talking about, let alone can give some deep insight in any matter.

People who can't say anything very interesting about the plot of an anime, nor discuss something about it for more than 2 minutes because he doesn't know what he is talking about. You would expect this to be the case in normalgroid sites, that's a given, but I'm seeing this even in places where there are supposed to be people who are at least interested in anime and otaku culture. Honestly is very boring that there are no people who like to know about their favorite things.

Anime you think you're missing out on

This thread is for discussion of anime you think you're missing out on. Recently, I've been trying to get into this new Madhouse original called "Sonny Boy". I saw some familiar staff and thought the show looked cool. When I got into it, the show already ran five or six episodes in. Now it's almost finished airing. I thought the first episode was cool, and I liked the second episode as well, but not as much as the first one. By the third episode I just wanted to smash my head against the wall. The characters all have the same snarky, lifeless, pseudo intellectual attitude. They all act like typical sheltered Tokyo brats. Another thing that irks me is the amount of uncreative still scenes there are. It makes the episodes drag for so long, and it's like their only purpose is to save money for a classic "super cool key animator moment" that lasts 10 seconds or less. Normally I know when to stop, but judging by the discussion of the show I've seen online, it looks like the show gets better as it goes on. So I either suffer through more episodes with no pay off, or I agonize through a bunch of schlock just for that one "golden" episode. I regret not watching Sonny Boy weekly. Anime is so 'off' these days, that I can't imagine keeping up with shows without having to wait a week in between.

My brain is too fucked to pull two intelligible sentences together, so pardon me if I don't make any sense.

As there are just too many manga, it is a huge pain to dig into this pile to find good ones to read. So why don't we share each other great manga, and good mangaka.

I'd recommend Fumetsu no Anata e (To You, the Immortal), pic related.

Story of some sort of immortal being of the shape of a sphere, has the ability to imitate object and being in his surrounding. It bit by bit, start to experience the world, pain, hardship, death, not having any idea of anything of who it is, and slowly develop of conscience. It's set in a fantasy world, where the clothing and customs are loosely inspired by early Japan, and maybe the Ainu.

Beautiful and detailed artstyle, incidentally the author of this manga is Ooima Yoshitoki which can explain why it reminds me of Koe no Katachi (same author after all).

What do you speculate the next trend in anime will be?
We had moe and it seems as if iseaki is still in full force but waning and I cannot imagine what the next trend will be so I am curious what you wizards speculate.

I do not think Moe will go away we will always have cute succubi doing cute things but maybe it will be different I think perhaps the art style will change and sadly feel that loli stuff may become rarer as more and more normalfags watch anime to the point that MAL reviews on loli anime is critical of the fact there is a loli in it featured with some fan service.

I am secretly hoping that more depressing anime gets made and even some anime that is entirely in black and white like a manga I love the visuals in anime but manga can really look so much better for some stories.

Sorry for the brainfart

AnimeGate Coming Soon?

>Celebrities and reality stars have been tweeting about anime
>Crunchyroll censors fan service in the english release of a well anticipated game
>Funimation called anime fans "creeps"

Granted, after Crunchyroll made the mistake they made, they apologized and cowered with their tail between their legs. So we may have more of a fighting chance than we did in GamerGate.

Most disappointing anime

What was the most disappointing anime you have ever watched? For me personally, it was Sailor Moon Crystal. I'm a big Sailor Moon fan and I was pumped for the new series to come out, even though it kept getting delayed I didn't care, I just wanted to feel the magic I felt watching the series for the first time again. But when the show aired in the summer of 2014 i was met with a show with extremely sloppy animation, poor writing and really just an underwhelming vibe to it. It was just such a gut punch to see my favorite show get treated with such a mishandled and mediocre retelling.

old school anime

Lately, I have been enjoying some anime from the 70s and 80s, like Star Musketeer Bismarck, Beast King Golion, Mazinger Z, Uuchu Senkan Yamato and so on. I'm really liking the Super Robot genre as well as the "real robot" mecha genre started by Gundam and Macross.

Anyone else enjoy old anime? Let's discuss. Recommendations welcome, of course. Also been looking for subtitles for Lightspeed Electroid Albegas, but no luck.
