Name the most obscure anime shows out there in the deep dark reaches of the internet that most people don’t know about

Like Darkstalkers they did the same thing to Virtua Fighter in making an anime from the game. It was a 90s arcade game that was the first to use 3D models instead of hand drawn animations.
some people just want to die young, which I thought was cowardly till I saw someone come down with Alzheimer's.
pffft, unless it is super popular you aren't finding torrents these days fag. I have better luck on Youtube or some back water Youtube knock off than torrents.
>Alexander the Conquer and Big O are not anime
by the way throw Alexander the Conquer on that list since I had to go out of my way to find it again, but it was made by the same guy who did ANeon Flux.
>code geass
last time I heard about this they said Attack on Titan ripped it off.


The Idolm@ster is not an "obscure" anime. Unless I fell off the bottom of this list long ago.


These charts are always shitty “ironic” memes that just throw shit at the wall hoping it sticks. Like dragon ball is the same tier as LOGH and hetalia,


agree that being a streamfag is OK, especially when there are no trustworthy public torrents. i only hate watermarks.


Anyone have any suggestions for good historical anime? Not expecting accuracy. Mostly interested in feudal Japan but other settings are fine too. Been loving Vinland Saga 2.

I know there's a draw thread on /hob/ for posting any drawing you want, but I thought we might want to have a draw thread here specifically for anime requests. Post your requests and/or anime-style drawings. I'm a drawfig myself so at least one of your requests will be fulfilled.

Probably some obscure doujin some dude made 15 or 20 years ago.



Most Doujins that get printed and distributed at comic events or through an online printing service such as Melon Books never get scanned and released, not even on the Japanese webs


If you look closely that is SAI a digital drawing program. I do not think that's a scan but rather a doujin in the process of making.

Share scenes from anime you like, found interesting, or that caught your attention.
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.

The kind of people who continue to watch anime as adults tend to have a peurile sense of humor.

Post ITT when you finish an anime, and write something about it. Can be anything from brief unrefined feelings to long formal reviews.

This thread can also be helpful for people looking for things to watch.

i watched this and it was ok. probably gonna go through it again eventually. already looking forward to SBR and whatever the part 9 manga is gonna be called (i heard JOJOLANDS but could be bullshit).



I watched Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu (including the Taiwan special), also known as Minami Kamakura High School succubi Cycling Club. Here are my thoughts:

The title of this anime accurately describes the content. There's minimal 'filler' material in here – the screentime is nearly always focused on cycling in some way. I appreciate anime that consistently stick to their theme, unlike so many other highschool anime which devolve into formulaic episodes unrelated to the show's main selling point. Minami Kamakura Jitensha-bu could be described as formulaic as well, in the sense that the storyboard is what you'd expect for a show about novice cyclists, but at least you won't have to suffer through a culture-festival episode or a typical beach episode. I was apprehensive about the highschool setting but thankfully there's barely any classroom screentime in this. As you might expect, various landmarks in the Kamakura region are featured throughout the cycling activities. It does sometimes feel like a thinly veiled tourism advertisement, albeit not overly so and my enjoyment was never impeded by this.

I liked the brief live-action segments that play at the end of each episode. They mostly consist of various cycling-related conversations in a bike shop. These live-action segments are both informative and cute and I enjoyed them, especially because they seemed endearingly loosely scripted. This anime is fairly educational for cycling – although I already knew much of what is explained regarding bicycles, it was still entertaining to see things rehashed. This show does a good job of teaching the viewer about cycling while still being entertaining. This could serve as a kids' show. There's minimal sexualization, and the character interaction is very simplistic and straightforward such that a child could understand it easily. This anime's characters are quite tropey and there's barely any character development.

Minami Kamakura Jitensha-bu comes up short in the production-value department – it could pass as being 15 years older than its actual production year. The character designs are retro, and CG is sometimes used to animate the cycling scenes. The landscape and setting do sometimes look nice though. I found the voice acting mediocre and was also disappointed by the crummy low-budget souPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



I watched both the Haikara-san ga Tooru movies, also known as Here Comes Miss Modern. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about a tomboy who is pressured into an arranged marriage with a half-jap soldier in the Japan army. The story takes place during the first couple decades of the 20th century and has a socio-historic flavour that some viewers may find appealing. It involves a lot of social issues in Taisho-era Japan, mainly involving female gender roles. It is somewhat interesting from a sociological perspective, although the plot velocity and runtime constraints limit the depth to which these themes could be explored. Even so, someone interested in historical Japanese society might appreciate this anime. These movies also incorporate the political nature of marriage in the writing – I found this to be refreshing, as the typically overly romanticized nature of marriage in fiction often doesn't reflect reality. I appreciated this lifelike treatment of marriage, and it meshed well with the other social themes. That said, romance is still a dominant motif in this anime, as is the relationship drama that comes along with it.

This feels like a shoujo-demographic anime, albeit not exclusively so. As you might assume from the title, the story focuses very much on the female MC. The primary male love interest lacks character depth – he's really underdeveloped. In fact the entire cast is tropey in characterization, but I don't think that could have been avoided given the runtime. The story actually reminded me of theatrical works like Shakespeare in the sense that it involved themes such as love and loss, love polygons, tragedy and reunification; it was all quite reminiscent of theatrical writing. Haikara-san ga Tooru feels like it could be a stage play instead of movie anime. Ironically however, I found the scriptwriting itself poor – many scenes in this could have been enhanced by a better script.

Similarly to theatrical writing, the story of Haikara-san ga Tooru demands a lot of suspension of disbelief. It is filled with convenient coincidences used to move the plot along and it felt crude and hamfisted as a result. The second movie in particular is quite bad in this regard and I enjoyed it less than the first. I also found the pacing of the first movie better calibrated than the second. Post too long.

I finished Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai

I dont think ive ever felt worse in my life by watching an anime. Every episode was gut wrenching and made me cry.

I wanted anaru and jintan to get together so badly man

When it ended ive been feeling even more down…… FuCK my life.



I somehow watched Eromanga Sensei to completion, including the OVA. Here are my thoughts:

Basically, this anime has a ton of sexualization and not much else. If you want ecchi cumbrain garbage, here's your jerk material. There's no other major selling point here.

Most of the main characters in this are writers or content creators in some form – I thought this might be an interesting dimension to explore. Unfortunately, this show does not deliver any kind of interesting story whatsoever. The supporting cast, despite being composed of artists, are mostly treated as sex objects, and the scriptwriting reflects this accordingly. I was initially hopeful for the content-creator perspective of this story, but they never really provided anything substantial in this regard. The male MC is a writer, but otherwise he is a spineless idiot with zero personality, as usual. In fact the entire cast is unlikeable for various reasons, as well as lacking character development in general.

Eromanga Sensei has very little entertainment value besides arousing your poor abused weary foul fap-blistered septic basement-dweller chode. When people say they hate anime, this kind of show is what they are thinking of. Frankly, it's the textbook definition of garbage. It has plenty of lewd content though, so it may be able to assist in draining your sweaty hairy sensitive delicious lustful intoxicating voluminous nutritious testicles, which perhaps is an advantage depending on your perspective. There's not much else of value here. Of course, there's nothing intrinsically wrong with that; boys will be boys ;)

Seriously though, there are some funny moments, but I wouldn't recommend watching this unless your primary motivation is sexual in nature. This anime really is shameless cumbrain material. Some of the (usually sexual) comedy did get some laughs out of me. Also, if you're one of those people obsessed with shipping and who wins the MC's affections, or someone who sees love triangles as a glorified horse race to place bets, then you might personally find this show entertaining. There are multiple female candidates vying for the male MC's attention. The OVAs in particular focus on this aspect of the story.

I can see why this show spawned so many memes. Unlike the characters themselves, the meme material Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

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?

does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
this has been happening to me a lot lately and i have no idea how to deal with it

everyone is sweet and polite to watamote-chan she just doesn't see it


Fiction is supposed to be idealistic so no I don't mind.

It does make me wish I could've been an exchange student.

I especially like the variety of clubs shown. I'd like to believe at some well-funded private school some of the more exotic ones exist together. If I were a teacher, I'd definitely be the advisor for the computing club despite having no aptitude for it myself.


>does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
I was homeschooled growing up, but sometimes seeing school animes where the characters have friends and have fun outside makes me seethe in jealousy.


The heavy emphasis for school in anime is because it's the only world Japanese kids know which is due to boomers protesting lax changes in the education system in the 80s, there was a screencap I saw which I don't possess anymore that went over it in more detail. Also Japanese school life isn't terrible like it is in America and eastern Europe or whatever example you wish to use. Also notice how anime is escapism while Japanese film is usually somber or depressing, and if it's even a happy family there's no sugar-coating and romanticization of that happiness.


It's basically >>40068
In Japan school is looked back fondly by both normalfags and otakus, and is heaven compared to the high expectations and high conformity of Japanese adult life.

It's so much better than that shitty movie that came out earlier this year.


It's so hard to go back to the earlier two seasons before Momoko is introduced and Hana-Chan aged herself up.


This show's hype died down.
