Best storyline, Best fights, Best charcters, Best villians, many people think that all the fights are the same and all the arcs are to similar when they're not, it sucks only with pacing and maybe it is long

so, i wouldnt say it's the best nor would i say that it's underrated. underrated compared to naruto, bleach, and dbz+? certainly, even for its length. the execution is so much better than those, the style is pretty fucking cool at some points as well, but it's not worth the time overall. i have been watching the "ending," or one or two of the last arcs rather (unless it's a big surprise and they continue like naruto or dragonball and adapt pirate ships toward space exploration for a sequel series), and it is ok, but i still have enjoyed things like jojo and hxh much more for the amount of investment. i will probably finish, but it all depends on how much longer it will go. honestly, i wish the yyh/hxh creator had this same problem of not wanting to end.

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?

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.

Profit-seeking would be the cowardly way of phrasing what amounts to an attack on the audience, there isn't profit in making ugly characters but they do it anyway because they know gamers will take it in the rear end and keep buying, so why would I frame it incorrectly in that way? If you have self respect as a person who enjoys his hobbies that's much worse than companies simply trying to make money, which is what they've done forever.

Things like gacha crap and generic slice of life moe anime are trash but at least they aren't straight up insulting, they at least pander to the demographic in a vaguely honest way and that's leagues preferable to things being ugly on purpose.

>You should always care when unknowns walk into *your* spaces.

True, gatekeeping should be mandatory.


Cyberpunk Edgerunners has been #1 on shitflex for over week now, this was the final nail in the coffin. Anime is now offically normalfag central in the West, start expecting the animation studios and manga artists to start appealing more to western normalfags and watch it form into another soulless of form of woke entertainment and horrors you thpught you'd never gaze upon before. Remember wizzies to gatekeep what you love

Man you fucked up twice.

Them making anime series of western stuff doesn't really irk me *persay*, it's been going on for a while and it's too late to complain about it at this point. And at least *back then* when this was kinda interesting to see.

What is annoying me is that there's the possibility that the cyberpunk 2077 franchise will recover from the absolute mess that was Cyberpunk 2077. It will prove to me that gamers today are mostly sheep that deserve to be fleeced.

romance, even this fictional fantasy waifu romance stuff, makes me cringe

but drawing it is kinda cool, at least you're creating something, producing things that can be experienced by others should they ever see it

I watched Knight's & Magic. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about a geeky programmer who gets isekai'd into a fantasy world where he is transformed into an androgynous mecha-fanatic (inb4: wow he's literally me!). The isekai world is like a medieval fantasy setting but with mechs added. Basically, this is a typical isekai show but with a lot of mecha-related content. If you stripped away the mecha theme, this would be an utterly generic medieval isekai. The mecha theme in a medieval setting is the only thing this anime has going for it – there really isn't any other selling point. In general this show feels fun and self-aware of its own silliness.

After the first couple episodes I was feeling cautiously optimistic about this anime, but as I progressed further my enthusiasm declined. I wanted to like this but the actual story is quite dull and boring. The story feels better suited for an LN instead of anime, which isn't surprising since this is an LN adaptation. A large portion of the show consists of the MC tinkering around in the mech mechanic shop, which could be interesting but the execution is so underwhelming (it's probably cooler in literature format). This issue is aggravated by the mechs functioning via some kind of nonsensical magic that isn't ever adequately explained. I think all the tinkering and mechanic shop scenes would have been way more interesting if the mechs operated on physical principles, or at least all the engineering aspects were coherently explained. Anyway, when the mech conflicts do occur they feel totally formulaic. This anime fails to deliver any kind of engaging storyline, and the episodes feel like a slog to get through as a result. I never felt the slightest flicker of excitement or suspense while watching this. It should be noted that I haven't read the LN and can't vouch for the quality of the source material nor the fidelity of this adaptation.

The characters themselves are rather lackluster; nobody is memorable in any way besides the MC. The supporting cast is tropey, generic, and underdeveloped. I liked the MC though – he was fun and his enthusiasm for mechs was infectious. The MC's VA suited him well, and his clingy female companion (Adeltrud) has some cute voicework too. There are all sorts of bastardized western-Continental-European names for ePost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I just started watching this today. So far I'm really enjoying it. It's actually gotten me back into anime. It reminds me of Yokohama Drive in a weird way.



I watched Onihei. Here are my thoughts:

I dropped this halfway through but picked it up again a few months later and managed to complete it. Overall it was pretty mediocre but did have a couple positive qualities. Foremost, this show does a good job of depicting the 18th-century Japan setting, both visually and from a sociological perspective – many social themes that prevailed during that time period are featured in the writing (ex. caste system, prostitution and infidelity, criminality and law enforcement, gambling and drinking). This anime can be interesting from a sociological perspective. That said, I found the constant focus on burglaries became boring and repetitive, even from early in the runtime. The screentime used to demonstrate the thievery (like sneaking in, etc.) is often quite dull and repetitive, as well as lacking creativity. The low-budget undynamic animation also certainly did not complement these burglary scenes. Although there are many frames in which the setting (ex. building architecture) looks nice, the animation is not dynamic at all – it often feels like a Powerpoint presentation. There are certainly some nice static shots in here, but the character animation feels very low effort, including during the short-lived action scenes.

The plot is mostly episodic with stories that are self-contained within their respective episodes. However, there is a core set of characters who persist across episodes. Unfortunately, these recurring characters are underdeveloped and not particularly likeable or memorable in any way. The episodic plots usually involve the characters reacting to some kind of conflict (i.e. generic burglary scheme #9001 + ratchety hoodrat drama that belongs on Jerry Springer), leaving little room for any kind of character development – this issue is compounded by the large size of the cast. Overall I found the storywriting tedious and repetitive. The episodic plots are quite generic and felt like they came off an assembly line – there was nothing in here that I hadn't already seen many times before in fictional writing. Like, a third of the episodes somehow involve a guy falling in love with some dumpy hooker bitch – this gets tiresome very fast, yet the theme gets repeated over and over in the writing; it was eyeroll-inducing.

I personally am not at all fond oPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Remembered this show that I saw several episodes of on Cartoon Network a long time ago called s-CRY-ed. I remembered really liking the main character's design even though it's kind of generic I guess (the whole show is a bit generic, being a fight-fight-fight anime). I wound up watching the whole series today and, even though I'm a lot older than when I first watched it, it was still entertaining enough. Comparing it to Kill La Kill or Gurren Lagann, I think I like this show more (although the animation quality is probably better in those two, but I haven't seen them in years).
Only two things that really bothered me were a horrible recurring gag with one of the characters and that two episodes are basically recaps but contain just enough plot development that I didn't want to skip over them entirely. Not gonna endorse it because I'm not going to accept blame for anyone who wastes time on it and doesn't enjoy it.

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.

If you asked me to remember details about anything I watched in the past I bet I would barely remember it.


How many films/shows have you rewatched? In my opinion it is necessary to view a show several times to fully digest it properly. The media landscape we inhabit may discourage such consumption habits, due to the astonishing pace with which crap gets shoveled out.


Just watch what you like


I was never particularly autistic about remembering anime, especially the ones I enjoyed less. I rewatch my favorites sometimes and it definitely helps but for some lesser known anime or OVAs is very difficult for me to remember. It's a mixture of convoluted storytelling and not being able to talk about it to anyone (memory is built on repetition) that makes it so I forget a lot about it besides key points or my favorite character's personality and traits. Having some internet friends or an imageboard will one hundred help if you're forgetful.
When I first got into monster of the week anime I used to keep track of episode quality on a small list, that way when I look back at the show after finishing it, I'd see how much I enjoyed or didn't enjoy it. It was annoying to keep track of all that shit so I eventually stopped. Ultimately, things like a shitty ending can ruin your enjoyment of a show even if you liked 90% of it, cause bad things stay in your mind for longer. That happened multiple times on me and I sometimes look back on episode lists and think to myself "yeah, that was worth the shitty ending"
I guess what I'm trying to say it that I think that even if you forget the show, you shouldn't forget how you felt about it. Even if you mix up memories and confuse a show with something else or forget the title or develop some fake memories on top of that, you should have faith in yourself and say "Yeah that anime… I forgot the entire second quarter but holy fuck was it hype!".
Don't blame your brain that you forgot anime plot points, and don't think that "I forgot this so it must be bad", if you've seen 100-200 anime you've got full rights to be forgetful. With that in mind it's not good to discuss anime like that, if you attempt to talk about a show you've seen 8 years ago online people will notice and call you a faggot.


actually first time this happened a few days ago. was checking mal and noticed something i finished and rated and could not for the life of me remember anything about it

i think i might have been doing a sleep deprivation experiment at the time though to trigger lucid dreams…

I'm about to start grade 3 Kanji. It's becoming easier now I know what the Kanji radicals mean. They're like hieroglyph pictures. And if there's a 2nd radical it usually tells you the way to say the kanji. For instance 五 "go" = 5. 言 "i/koto/gen" = say. Now 日本 (nihon/nippon) = japan + 語 (go = language) = 日本語 "nihongo" Japanese language.

See 言 is made up of 口 (mouth) with lines that look like sound waves coming out on top. 五 (five) has nothing to do with language but it's just in 語 as a radical to indicate the sound "go" as you read it.

It all comes together once you grasp the meaning of the radicals.

Attaching the printable files for grade 4 Kanji cards. The site link for all other grades is at the bottom of each pages.


I tried taking the JLPT for the very first time this July, and managed to pass N1.
Just did it for fun, since it's very cheap to do so in my country, don't actually need it for anything. Wasn't as hard as I expected honestly, though listening felt especially tough at the time.


Do you mind going more into detail? What was it like? I'm planning to enter into the next JLPT and try N1, I probably don't have to worry about failing since there's still a long time until then, but this'll be my first time taking JLPT so I might just be getting cocky.


The only actual practice I did was the question sampler on https://www.jlpt.jp/
You just need good time management really since it's kinda tight, 110 minutes for vocab, grammar, and reading, no breaks, so if you're stuck on a question you have to move on.
Listening I probably should have practised as I had no idea what structure the exercises would follow, and in N1 they only play the audio once it is not easy. I was not prepared at all for some of the problems having no text at all on the page and the question and answer list is audio only, played once. Thankfully I still got 40/60 pts in the listening section somehow.


I see. I'm glad there's no autistic training regimen needed to pass it. Reading sounds like a bitch and listening too, especially with how you can only listen once. I guess I should be glad that I've recently set my focus on listening practice and already have some decent results. I should probably get to dealing with my 2000 dues though, there were a few words I didn't know in the N1 sampler.

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?

So it has to be made for Japan to be anime?


Anime is japanese animation. there is plenty of manga adapted from western novels. Maybe there should be another term for wholly japanese created works.

Manhwea and web toons are nearly always appealing to normies the art is always down badly in these comics as well and I dislike that they are being made into anime but most mass produced anime is lacking any substance anyway.

I would be more concerned about shitty CGI being used in anime OP.


words just get bastardized over time, any turn-based combat game could be called a jrpg, anything that looks like anime could be called anime, people will get what you're saying unless they are being pedantic

didnt stand out for me. shoujoshit just seems to appeal to pedos. there was that battle royale shoujo show where all of them were actually killing each other and i liked that a lot. the name eludes me right now.


You're probably thinking of Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku.

It was mediocre IMO.


If you can't perceive the artistic merit of Madoka Magica you frankly have zero taste whatsoever.

You don't have to like it but it's quite obviously a significant cultural contribution.


i like the art direction (which i think is far superior in most regards to keikaku) but not anything else really. for it to stand out to me, other things should also be better. if it were a bit edgier and explicit like keikaku, then i might consider it good. dont really give a shit if a million other people like or dislike something and i fail to see how that matters to personal taste. if that's how you define taste, i feel sorry for you.


Watching and "getting the message" of Madoka Magica turned an entire generation of innocent anime watching kids into future wizards.
