I'm pretty sure the second succubus is Kuromiya Rei, the singer of BRATS. I know she used to be involved in the Jr. Idol business.


At that point in time Western anime fans were calling themselves otaku and it wasn't seen as something negative. Now even anime communities are anti-otaku hardliners and think of them as subhuman trash that have to be swept into the dustbin of history to make way for globalization. It's no doubt just a coincidence that this change happened as smartphones and social media took hold.


how to see the video?


I can see why Megumin is such popular waifu-bait. She's playful, innocent, but also has a slutty side. She's young enough to tap into the male protector instinct but also clearly sexual. The apparent inexperience adds a layer of naughtiness and taboo to it. Pretty much the male fantasy of 'lady in the sheets, freak in the sheets'.


Fuck off.

Do you know any more anime that give you a feeling of isolation and loneliness? Where the interactions between characters are short? Where it's more about the atmosphere created by images and sound rather than story and dialogue? They don't necessarily have to take place in desolate places. It could also be about the sense of isolation you get from living in a big city.

Are those shows disagreeable to you anon?


that's not quite what mono no aware refers to, it's a concept that's definitely more tied to how iyashikei shows function than a lot of the sci-fi anime you listed.


None of the shows I listed were fully compatible with mono no aware, but as most of the good ones were already mentioned I opted for a few I felt had such moments now and then, be it in outer space or on earth.


I disagree with giving the farmer boy as the only example of a character in that story who achieved success. If anything, he's one of the more tragic ones, as in the final quarter of the show he's seen content only because of drowning himself in alcohol. Every character but him finds some sort of grounding in reality, while he continues living in the illusion predetermined for him by his ancestors. That being said, I'd recommend the show as well.

Due to coronavirus there are delivery services that drop food at your door and walk away now

I've only had bad experiences getting take-away ramen. It always goes cold and gross + is bad if they separate the ingredients in separate containers etc

Tried Osaka-style sushi?


I wonder why. Maybe it's because Japan is literally America's colony and they're forced to bend over for every single one of their whims.


Thank god I'm not japanese.

Good news Mika Sensai! We are transferring you to an underprivileged city school in America!


Apart from an anime featuring an adult living with her parents doing a low wage job, I dislike this anime for everyone being a sexual degenerate.

I'm kind of surprised this isn't already in the catalog. So, uh, let's talk about Evangelion?

The first time I saw it was actually on an online stream organized on…either here or back when wizardchan was still up. In retrospect, I don't know HOW I managed to watch the anime I did and not run across NGE. It's like never hearing about Star Wars, but that's how it was. In any case, I thought it was a sort of Plan Nine kind of thing, because I came into the stream midway through the series, and particularly after seeing Episode 25 and 26. It felt like the narration at the beginning of Plan Nine. I also wasn't too phased by the apocalypse because…isn't that how all anime end? So many JRPGs and anime have to have some sort of over-the-top climatic ending that I sort of just shrugged it off.

Afterwards, I thought that others would have funny stuff to say about it, but then realized that…this was something pretty serious to a lot of people. It sort of annoyed me because it came off as horribly pretentious to me. Since then, a few years have passed and I've forgotten about it. But then recently it nagged on me, and I saw it again. It struck a chord with me. I hate to say that because I don't want to give an inch to all the pretentious reviews I read. Why it has done so NOW I wish I knew why, and for some reason that really disturbs me.

I think the best review I've seen on NGE is a single sentence long, "You like NGE in inverse proportion to the amount you like yourself."

It's disgusting.

I don’t think we’re using the same definition of pretentious.


Peanuts is deep as fuck


i don't i can comprehend any definition of pretentious other than the correct one i'm operating under. if you mean pretentious by you didn't understand it, therefore you didn't like it, then i can get that. if you meant pretentious by how it actually means, i.e. imparting a sense of unwarranted importance, i think my interpretation is pretty spot on.

as much as i like NGE, it's not so important that the tiny details (e.g. asuka's stances and facial expressions in the elevator scene) absolutely must be ranimated until perfect, because as iconic and great as that scene is, it's really not that essential.

however, embarking on a new story and diverting from the broadcased canon can't be pretentious. that's exactly why end of evangelion was made: because many people hated the original ending. retreading the same exact ground in hopes of finding undiscovered value is objectively more pretentious than trying to find worth in a new story.


I've grown bored of Eva. I'm not even that excited for the new rebuild, the others to me were kind of blasé


I think the originals were good because Anno was depressed it become mediocre when he wasn't


Times ticking so I’m thinking about making my pilgrimage soon. What places would you recommend going to? I’d like to see a lot of mecha stuff but any recommendation would be fine.

Also, how much Japanese do i need to know to go? My vocabulary is limited to 3 or 4 words, so I thought about just paying someone here to come with me to translate but that’d suck if I payed all that then he ditched me so I’ll just tough it out and learn some

I could really use the knowledge from the posts of that one wizzie who biked through japan for a month or two and shared his pictures here.
Do you have any particular dates or months for a travel-time?


My Japan visit consisted of me and my Dad gorging ourselves at a bunch of restaurants in Shinjuku. Even the convenience stores have delicious food there.

I didn't know any Japanese. I just pointed at things on the menu.


this, i'd say it's pretty wizardly if anything


Japan seems cool and laid back


Was planning a trip soon but fucking bugmen ruined it for me.

which one did it better Eden or NGE? although they are not that similar really


I dunno I never saw eden.


Is Eden any good?


I rather watch NGE than any new anime that ever comes out


its top tier stuff no doubt about it


Goddamnit I just watched the entirety of Higashi No Eden because this thread intrigued me. I was wondering the whole way through why would you compare it to eva.
Well I got the wrong series but I enjoyed it regardless.

Classic old geimu but can be quite fun, r-right?
Image can be a screenshot or anything else really as long as it gives a clue. I'll start with something pretty easy, probably.

Is it good?


It's a cute SoL comedy, so average it's a bit strange.

Aye, gold star for you wiz. Figured I'd start off with one of the big classics since they tend to stick to mind even if someone may not have seen them in ages.
I've fucked up on several shows itt that I've actually seen before but almost completely forgotten. Especially it vexes me that I missed Stellvia up there.

How about this one?

what are the thoughts of wizs about kurenai?
truth to be told i only stayed because of the piano BG at first but before i could even realize it i got engaged by the characters and the slice of life atmosphere.
i mean theyre not ,like , extra deep complex characters strugiling in some sort of cyberpunk world, u can call em even stereotypes whose personalities hold no value at all and that wont be too much of a mistake but the animation is so full of energy and when the characters starts talking all at the same time makes it makes it feel more vivid, so u come to forget they are normfags whatsover.

maybe its just that the idea of kids getting hit in the head when they do something wrong and a bunch of people speaking ath the same time in a small room sounds appealing to me
but what does wiz thinks about simple shows like these?


note: i found it very sweet even with the murasikis yeling and attitude


It was kino as hell until the finale where they forcefully remind you this is an adaption of a light novel.
Up until that point though absolutely god tier SoL
