Has anyone experience in cutting out anime from your life? I'm thinking of doing a NoAnime September and seeing how it will turn out.

Anime has consume my life and I keep buying anime merchandise, watch anime all day, and have turned my room into an anime haven. It made me fap all the time to anime succubi and I am always weak and tired now, and when I am I watch some anime to feel happy - it is like a drug.

Even after finishing anime it doesn't stop for me as I go on gelbooru and look up pictures of anime characters I like.

So does anyone have experience quitting anime or cutting down on this habit?

I haven't watched an anime since Kemurikusa. I think that might be my last anime. Even before that, I had not watched anime regularly for years. If you still watch anime and play vidya regularly, you are probably in your early twenties or younger. When you get to 25, that's the wall. I'm almost five years past the wall now.

It's okay, man.



> When you get to 25, that's the wall.

"The wall"? What exactly happens around 25 that anime and vidya isn't ok anymore? It's certainly good to care about other things in life, but enjoying anime and vidya beyond 25, 30, whatever is fine. Never quite understood this idea that once you hit a certain age, entire genres of entertainment should be discarded. Countless animated entertainment has been made and enjoyed by people in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. Miyazaki is a notable example, though there must be many others. Modern Doom is being developed by guys who grew up on old school Doom. If those adults can delight in anime and vidya, why can't others?

I hope I never get bored of anime; it's good fun.


There's a bunch of different things that will happen that will ruin your enjoyment of anime, ill try to mention some

>Eventually running out of anime to watch

In my experience the only people who still like anime are the ones who haven't watched enough yet. There are some rare cases but those fall into sunk cost fallacy.

>99% of anime watchers are cancer posers

The anime fan base is cancer. There is no difference between the types of people who watch anime anymore, the average /a/ guy is as much of a normie as the /jp/ otaku, and both are as cringe as the high school narutards

>Anime has become a mainstream commodity to consume

You will not find anyone anymore that actually enjoys anime. It's going to be just people who either watch anime for le epic otaku e-cred, to update their anime list, or to brag about how much moe or shounen they watched.

>Anime is a flawed medium

Eventually you will get tired of 12 episode VN shilling, seasonal garbage that the masses seemingly eat up. The 50 year old wagie succ that does voice overs for your loli moe that you didn't care about before will start to taint the pure image they are trying to portray. The storylines all end the same and end abruptly, if you get involved in a long series the writing is Marvel capeshit tier even in the most "mature" artpiece titles, with retcons, red herrings, and deus ex machinas out the ass. It doesn't matter if you're watching shounen, moe, seinen, or 2deep4u…they all share these flaws.

>The genius writers of good anime from old days are now bitter corporate shills who cant create anything original.

Anime has lost all it's creativity. There hasn't been any new or interesting trends. Original works are a thing of the past. Everyone is too afraid of making something new and failing.

P.S I love anime. Im a real anime fan and saw years worth of anime, but to keep watching it knowing all this I simply cant just "not care" as I don't derive some sort of masochistic pleasure from watching garbage.

I largely agree with the diagnosis of modern anime. The best times for anime, and perhaps digital culture more generally, are over. I tend to watch pre-2010 stuff nowadays, though I'll watch the odd new release here and there.

Sticking more with previous content and not paying much attention to modern anime and its fan-base helps. I've watched anime for a few years and am 26 soon, no sign yet of getting bored with anime. Your point about not having watched enough is fair though, I watch ~10-15 anime a year, which is likely less than many.

The lack of imagination and daring is in everything nowadays. But if one is going to watch anything, anime still seems more varied, fun and free of Western moralism than the alternatives. It doesn't seem worth giving up wholesale on anime or animated entertainment in general. There's a lot out there, even if one entirely ignores modern anime.

Pic is from Captain Future, an interesting and enjoyable sci-fi made in 1978. A good 52 episodes.

Opinions on Nichijou? I think it's a good comedy Slice Of Life anime. How about you guys?

What was different aside from Nano not being a student the whole time? The anime was pretty faithful otherwise and the animated Helvetica Standard segments are nice. HS is a good read too along with City.


The art on the manga gets really bad and lazy at times while the anime looks super cozy and pretty. Really brings up those characters better. They also rearranged all the sketches for better pacing. I remember in the manga, specially the "firing weapons" routine happening too often to the point of being a little annoying. The manga sometimes you'll get several stories involving violence in a row which ruins the cozy sol mood while the anime spaced those out pretty well I felt.


Maybe he's deaf.


I'm pretty sure he's being sarcastic.


Nichijou was excellently well done. 9/10, maybe a 9.5

It seems to me that many NEET wizzies do nothing but watch anime all day. That would be tens of episodes a day. How do you guys not run out of stuff to watch? Where do you find new shows?

Japan is slow to change because it's full of bug men. It changes every 20 years catching up to the west it relies on.


Why are Western companies funding Japanese companies to make products that are 20 years out of date, in your view?


American comics and cartoons are a dead industry outside of Disney, pretty much all their former fans ran to anime so the USA wants a piece of that pie

The worry (and it's a legitimate concern) is that the Americans will use their money to force the same ideals that ruined their own comic industry into anime and ruin that too.


American comics are dying but the cartoon industry is trucking along alright.

On the internets


I'm watching Goblin Slayer, I stupidly watched the movie first, but it was still understandable to me. The series is good and explain his backstory, it's pretty fun to watch even if it's for normalfags. The series is super simple, hero hates goblins because they killed his parents/village and travels around accepting quests to kill goblins. Gets a party of elf archer, lizard man, dwarf and succubus priestess. Generic anime that normalfags like but really fun to watch.


Did you mean to post this in a thread?


>even if it's for normalfags
I never understood this criticism. Is it due to the "super simple" part? What's a non-simple anime to you? Evangelion? This anime elitism stuff these days is retarded.


Goblin Slayer is a quality anime


This really didn't need to be it's own thread dude.
We have several threads you could have posted this in.

What are your thoughts on the AOTY?
Seriously, it's been a while that I had so much fun watching an anime.
I am unironically going to rewatch it.

As someone who liked the manga and was eagerly awaiting the release of this anime, my only thoughts on the matter are as follows: https://screamintothevoid.com/

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.

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.


That scene in the first episode where she visits the town where everyone went insane after gaining telepathy really stuck with me


>Day 1 - Chill
>Day 2 - Nice stuff you got heeeee-
>End of Day 2/beginning of Day 3-Y'ALL BE FUCKED UP, BYYYYYYYYYYYYYE.
Every episode.

I heard of Street Fighter gamers going to Japan as a path to improve their game. It would be cool to go to Japan to learn how to make ramen or forging a katana.

What skills would learn if you can make it to Japan?

your telling me food porn is like watching



It tries to be so deceptive that I only see its deception. The way they present the food feels fake.


There was some talk about traveling through japan and sleeping outside etc couple years backwards. Found this video today and it made me think about that thread, didn't see it by quickly glancing through the catalog so I'm posting it here, enjoy.


It's sad that this video will go on to inspire millions of redditors to pretend they're poor in a foreign country, which will then make this type of travel heavily restricted.


No it wont. Quit Perl clutching.

I've started reading Chainsaw Man by the same author and it's just as good. This mangaka is fuckin crazy

Picked it up after catching up with ChainsawMan, Really is good, I did not see any of these twists coming.

Very excited to see what the mangaka has in store for ChainsawMan after seeing how batshit Fire Punch got.


soooooo it's a fantasy story?


The manga was a fun read but very shit in many ways became convulted trash and the ending is a good way to spot normalfaggot big brain larpers because people pretend it was deep wen it is clear the author was just seeing how wacky he/she could get.
The manga started out VERY strong though but got all shit after a few arcs.


It's the meme man!!! xD

Why am I so mad Supreme are making jackets with Toshio Saeki art on them?

Do you think it'll be just a one off thing or are normlfags gonna be into Ero Guro now?

I checked price estimations and it's gonna cost around 400$ for the jacket, so not only are swagfag normans gonna wear the late & great Toshio's art it's gonna be rich swagfag normans.

What's next? Will Ariana Grande wear Anal Cunt merch?
You are welcome to post your fave Ero Guro that's not hentai.

No thanks


nothing new. I see normalfaggots wearing those le ebin hentai collage shit


If this stuff is getting traction in popular culture, it's only because it's good. If it makes you so uncomfortable that people you hate are into it, just keep reminding yourself that they'll move on to something else within the next 5 years.


Imagine caring.


it doesnt mean anything, people love le epic melancholic anime art and always have. they dont view it as "guro" anyways so why care?

For all those who have lost hope in true love IRL, let's have a must have-tier Eroges thread. Wizard, NEET, Hikky and Otaku related are preferred.

I'll start with Otama! Otaku Nakama wa Chikkoi Mania and Semen Security 2009. They were really fun games.

What would fellow wizards recommend?

>What an existence, to have an inconvenient level of compassion for pixels while we scoff at and walk by real people crying for help all around us. Truly a wiz feeling.

That's because pixels don't betray you and talk behind your back after you help them, there was a small ugly succubus in middle school, everyone said that she was fugly and wanted nothing to do with her, I talked to her sometimes because I felt bad for her without being real friends we used to talk sometimes about stuff.

She got a bit better in High School and I tried to talk with her then, she wanted nothing to do with me and even heard her talking shit about me behind my back with her new friends, calling me a weirdo and a virgin loser.

That's what I get for being nice to people, the vast majority don't deserve it and they wouldn't be nice to if you were the one in trouble.


Still you did the right thing. Otherwise you would forever regret not helping. Now it's on her conscience not yours.

After finishing Summer Pockets Reflection Blue, I got back into continuing the 暁の護衛 trilogy, the later instalments are just as fun as the first one. I do have a bias towards ojou-sama heroines, but while this particular work is lacking a bit on the art and music front, the dialogue and banter between the characters is brilliant and a pleasure to read.

It's more of a story/drama/comedy focused work over a purely romance oriented one, but that only makes for a more exciting story.
