Watched the first three episodes of "Gushing over Magical succubi" and uh….yeah. It's exactly what it looks like. A very ecchi anime about lesbians and the main character is a total femoid rapist. There isn't much depth to it. You basically watch for the softcore 'porn' but after three episodes it gets kinda dull.

Cafe Terrace and its Goddesses.
At its best it's Haganai done better, meaning it essentially has most of Wotakoi's believability, solid characterisations and even likability. It got to the point where the very ground's complex lighting pattern was a work of art.
At its worst it's inevitably Haganai also done worse, meaning, well, you're better off looking up Love Hina once again compared to the annoying situations which are expected from a harem. Also, while only the first two thirds of Wotakoi were good before it became generic, Cafe Terrace remains consistent up until the final episode.
Though fuck me do they nearly throw everything away had they not taken a shortcut which allows an open interpretation. Overall it's very much a wholesome and unique harem anime disguised as a cliched one with all the expected trappings and tropes. 9.5/10

Dimension W
Read a few volumes of the manga a while back. I have to say that the idea seems too much for me to digest. But the mere fact its a visual reconstruction of 90s scifi anime, and has a unique visual design, got my attention all throughout. It was something different with classic roots overall. 8/10

Shangri la frontier has become my most anticipated show and frankly I'm a bit angry they stole 2 minutes of air time from me this week with a singing bunny. I hate all music numbers in anime and it's especially bad in a show I actually enjoy because the song robs me of that show. At least this one is 25 episodes instead of 12.

Is it just me, or is anime made with normalfags in mind nowadays?
Back then, it felt like anime was made exclusively for children and/or huge nerds.
But now it not only feels like most people who consume weeb shit are huge normalfags, but the people who make said weeb shit too. This applies to both western and japanese audiences by the way.
You can not go into a romcom discussion these days without seeing everyone talking about how the romantic life shown in the show compares to their own.
You just keep coming across many shows that seem to validate normalfags' way of life and opinions in the past few years.
To me, anime and anime culture today doesn't feel like it did a decade ago at all.
I only started really getting into weeb shit back in late 2009/early 2010, so maybe I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.
What do you think Wizards? Is anime made for normalfags instead of people like you nowadays?

Of course stream services have to make a profit, do you think they do it out of charity for the studios, and will keep doing so indefinitely? The streaming world implosion will probably come before any other major economic event, unless they radically change the system in a way not yet predicted.

 No.41637

>>41635
If the value of a streaming service was media delivery, sure.

I'm not convinced, seeing as the youtube model is apparently profitable. "What people watched at a given time" and of even more utility, "where and on what device they did it" - has *considerable* value when sold in a side industry.

For e.g. an insurance broker would very much like to know how often a given neighbourhood's population is at home on week nights, and thus how much higher they can get away with adjusting car premiums without cancellations. The ROI for that information used correctly would be measured in the hundreds per home per year - far in excess of what the service delivery cost.

Then add how the film & tv industry famously use creative accounting to mask and funnel income, including manufacturing tax losses (almost certainly in such a way that the suits other business ventures are the beneficiaries) and it's quite likely that a streaming service turning a profit could be considered a bad outcome.

Hell, making *any* taxable income in the modern era - at least in the markets I have worked in - is a good reason to sack the accountant for incompetence. There is no legitimate reason to turn a profit once an enterprise goes beyond a certain scale, because there's no intrinsic value in doing so - compared to realising gains through shell companies and service providers in tax friendly jurisdictions.

Circling back to the topic, I'm not too familiar with the specifics of .jp tax and finance laws but I have read that after the real estate bubble the regulations got a lot tighter for this sort of creative accounting and profit masking - which would suggest that the studios are ripe for exploitation when used by a foreign actor.

But as you rightly say, the implosion could well happen independently (or even be the kick starter) of the next recession.

Manga has always had a normalfag following in Japan, anime was more cliche, but that is changing as more people want to see their manga animated. Western compaines like Netflix is a big reason for anime becoming more mainstream in the west, they are funding multiple anime. And netflix loves pushing shit where doesn't belong, so your are going to see more anime normalfag behaviors (sex, cheating, etc), more diversity, more social-issues drama, more western-oriented, etc. This bleeds in Japan's own culture and you start to see more manga and anime appealing to the lowest of the low. It's disgusting.

Anime will stay the same, it will just be recontextualized ala >>40531

I went to a cinema showing of an anime series, it wasn't a movie it was one of those shortened versions of a series arc. People laughed at the appropriate moments but like they were conditioned to laugh like dogs given a command. The crowd was mostly hipsters and younger normalfags with their parents, as opposed to the usual weaboo crowd (though it is almost impossible to determine who is a weaboo since no longer requires effort).

Virtually not feasible at all. There is no situation in which a Japanese bus company is going to trust such a role to some random ass gaijin out of country.

Now if you lived in Japan on PR, had conversational Japanese and were already a bus driver (also very unlikely) then maybe but there's no chance of any of that happening for you, let's be real. Get a similar job in your own country. Getting a job in Japan is very difficult unless you work for an international company willing to transfer you or you want to be a teacher working the equivalent of minimum wage in Japan.

This is only tangentially related but every once in a while I wonder what it must be like to be some guy who works at a factory in some third world country producing cheap sex toys like sex dolls or that 20 lbs of ass and pussy thing. You know your entire existence is dedicated to helping random men cum. You are just a cog in some corporate machine dedicated to jacking off weird and lonely men everywhere. imagine you're the guy just packing silicon pussies into boxes all day long, one after the next in a seemingly endless line of identical pussies you know soon some dude somewhere will be cumming in, and to cap it all off your boss will be taking most of the profits while you do all the actual work. You must take the deal because you will starve and have no money which renders you completely helpless and unable to do anything or access any resources in society.

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?

South Korean productions feel so weird to me. Not only manhwa, but also their movies and music, it's how I'd imagine non-humans trying to copy what humans are doing, in a very awkward and artificial way. I listened to some old stuff, 50s or so, and despite not being something I'd be into into, it didn't feel the same. Maybe something historically happened that fucked them up, I know they had a decades long dictatorship.

There is a vast sea of Japanese films out there, and I can imagine most of /jp/ has only scratched the surface. What are the qualifications for a "hard to find Japanese film" you ask?

I saw an obscure film called Village of Doom 1983.
It's about the Tsuyama massacre where a young man with TB murdered almost his entire village over the course of a single night. He was ostracized by succubi for having TB.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsuyama_massacre
It's a great film. I like how it takes a very neutral view of the protagonist. It doesn't artificially portray him as a scumbag as he transforms from a nice guy into someone who just snaps.
The last 30 minutes are great. It's frantic and unrelenting as he runs through the town murdering everyone with his shotgun and katana with sadistic glee. There's a lot of first person camera shots too.
Unfortunately the only place I was able to find it was avistaz. It's a great tracker and I got into it pretty easily recently by hanging around on their invite discord server until they randomly did a sign up one day. I love old japanese films so it was well worth it for me. I highly recommend it for anyone interested.

Just watched this after seeing this post. I know this movie is over 10 years old now but that slow motion sword fight was one of the best set pieces i've seen in a film in a long time. Hearing the director say he got the idea from classical Japanese scroll art makes it even better.
