It makes me sad that anime from the early 2000s have already faded into obscurity, and discussion has all but died off on imageboards and forums. I see maybe one short-lived thread per year about tsukihime on all the imageboards I lurk. Do younger fans of anime just not like the style of 2000s stories?

ah, I see. So this normie thing has been a problem since the 1980s…

aha, just kidding. Maybe seasonal anime isn't too bad after all. Honestly, I just think treating anime or shows like seasonal things is kinda silly. Still, you probably on't see masterpieces or shows that impact you in a meaningful way very much.

These shows are meant to make money and tell a story. I don't think they're meant to stay around for a long time.

It's still good to get something happy for once though. I don't mind being wrong when the news is happy.

Also generating this post on zero hours of sleep. Sorry if it's incoherent.



Problem with long running anime is they're even less likely to be meaningful. Mainly due to source material - Manga are ran until people stop reading them enough. Same with LNs. So the story just goes on and on until it becomes unpopular enough to have an ending made for it. You can have meaningful stories in them but they tend to not wrap up at all since the characters are what keeps people reading. This is the vast majority and would happen to long running original anime too.

I love having shit like Hisomaso, Sakura quest, Shirobako, Himote house, and the anime originals that come out every season. They're great. Even if they aren't they at least make an attempt at a whole story rather than 'see you next week oh wait we got cancelled'. Let's not forget Ping Pong the animation.

There are exceptions of course, like Kaiba which told a complete story while being an adaptation, and so on, but having shorter anime seasons means that anime are kept tight and to the point, even if there's a lot of similarity.


It isn't so much about treating it as a seasonal thing as it is just convenient period for industry to just start new shows at certain point of the year. Especially now that most anime is just 12 episodes.


Sorry I didn't really know where to posts this but I found this cool video with 30 minutes of anime trailers from VHS

I keep hearing how good this show is and I'm thinking of checking it out. I also heard that this show has a legitimate debate over sub vs dub.

the worst part is whoever did the dubbed spike went on to doing just about every anime and video game localization for the next like 15 years

I grew so goddamn sick of hearing that man's voice in everything it makes me wanna tear my hair out


There are only a limited number of people that can do ADR really well and Steve Blum is great at it as well as not being super expensive. It is no surprise that he has gotten so many roles given the limited talent pool and his skill in the craft.


I'm onto the four demon beasts arc, the Rando arc before that was good up until the last fight with Yusuke,kind of a letdown.

AnimeBaths.Wikia.com (all 6200+ pages) is being shut down November 30: https://animebaths.wikia.com/wiki/?diff=119753

I don't know if the owner will be able to save it or not, I want to make an independent effort but need help with the mechanics. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Exporting_all_the_files_of_a_wiki says you can't follow standard procedure like https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Moving_a_wiki if you lack FTP access, and directs you to follow https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Export#1._Get_the_names_of_pages_to_export which says to use stuff like MySQL / PostgreSQL / Python but I don't have experience with any of these. Do they seem like absolute requirements or just ways to make the process go faster?

I also have a problem because it recommends using MS Word or Open Office or Vim but I can't run either of these on a Lubuntu OS that I've resorted to on an elderly PC. "Leafpad" does have a "replace" function but I can't get it to detect tabbing to replace that with line returns to get a newline list for each page.

if you dont know how to do anything, just download httrack, install, click next, enter a name, enter a project location, click next, enter website http://animebaths.wikia.com, then start


Owners have easier means to make a backup, so legal reason is more likely copyright and license.
Synaptic is fine.


I've installed httrack alongside python-kitchen and python-requests, willing to try both approaches.

>wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/WikiTeam/wikiteam/master/dumpgenerator.py

That command just downloaded a file into my home directory, simpler than I thought!

>python dumpgenerator.py –api=http://animebaths.wikia.com/api.php –xml –images

this commands the python program to run the dumpgenerator.py programming, focusing on an API.php from the site, but I am not sure what the -xml and -images do. Is that saying "only download those"?

if I understand command prompt right, starting a command line input with the name of the program instructs that program to run, and then you run parameters.

So there's no way to add these 2 things to my start menu?


Correct. Typing
python dumpgenerator.py --help
will show your other options. Note that you need two ordinary dashes for each. Vichan changes every pair to a long dash symbol.
You can add a shell script to launcher as shortcut, but probably shouldn't. How to do that is straightforward to google if you want to read more.

How does awareness benefit us?
> set you on the path to becoming a real wizard with fearful powers…
In reality even if you know all this stuff you are worse of than the normies, because soon they realize you aren't part of the kumbayaa chanting and turn on you even more.
Awareness is useless if you don't and will never have the power to do something about it.


conspiratard drivel.


>NHK taught me is to look deeper into the messaging in anime and study the occult symbolism so you can read the occulted cultural commentary and symbolic meanings hidden in shows.

How is that useful in any way? You can play the I Spy game but it doesn't make a show good. There are tonnes of youtube channels that look at the 'occult symbols' in shows, at most you might learn something vaguely interesting by looking it up on wikipedia


>Censors have emasculated the Japanese culture and strictly repressed sexuality leading to reduced birth rate…
Based. If only they did it to the whole world, not only selected nations.

That being said, you remind me of myself 10 years ago. Ah, to be young and impressionable again.


Then why is the monogatari series the highest selling anime of the past 10 years. The entire show is drenched in japanese history and reverences?

It's a pretty cosy fantasy adventure goblin slaying thing.


Honestly I was a little disappointed because someone IRL described it to me as what would happen if Doom Guy was isekai'ed to a generic fantasy land and instead of demons his beef was with goblins.
Obviously that is not what the show it. I mean it is still ok, but no where near as cool as what I though I was getting due to someone exaggerating.

The exposition in this show is fucking absurd.
At this agonizingly slow pace, they could stretch the manga out into four seasons.


Anime is starting to end for this season so I'm thinking of making a new thread.
If there are no objections I'll make one tomorrow.

My new favorite Japanese animation.
I kinda fantasized that way when i played Path of Exile.
Having my in-game power would help me bring justice to normies.

Started watching it and holy shit how bad it is. Even worse than Death March.
This time they didn't even bother showing how the fucker got there to begin with, it starts already after he somehow managed to become a local warlord.
That being said, looks like this one is targeted more towards grand strategy fans as opposed to usual RPG ones. And it's not even an isekai strictly speaking, since he time-traveled into pre-ancient past.
The amount of cheese is indeed critical though, you were spot-on with that.
Anyway, a decisive drop.

…and having said that I watched it nonetheless, because after all it's not like I have anything better to do.
And you know what, it wasn't completely terrible. Still as bad as it gets though, make no mistake.

Any NEETs here wanna team up with me and translate some manga? I can translate but I need someone to edit. We could be a two-person team and release frequently if both motivated. Anyway I'm not some newfag to Japanese like a lot of translators / Japanese learners, I can read fluently basically anything without a dictionary. I would prefer if people were long term NEETs though and not just summerfags who are taking a short break, or at least someone with a decent amount of free time. I don't want to be a one-chapter-per-month group, I would like to aim for at least 1 chapter a day to be honest.

I enjoy these stories. Some of them have over 100+ chapters and I've been copy/pasting them in google translate to read them, but a translation of them would be nice. I was planning on translating them all later when I'm better at japanese though if you don't want to, but that wont be until a few years probably.

i worked as a redrawer with this scanlation group 4 years ago https://www.mangaupdates.com/groups.html?id=5034

i could probably learn to clean and typeset if you want to team up, i doubt it's hard but i'd have to learn what exactly they do. for right now though all i could provide are good redraws. here's some stuff i did a while back


Yeah typesetting is very easy to learn you just erase the text and center it. We can easily pick something to translate with few redraws to make it easier if you want. I actually don't have anything in particular that I want to translate, I just wanted to do something. Do you have photoshop?


no, mangastudio. this was a minor annoyance with my last group since they all worked in .psd, but if you are translating and i'm doing everything else it should be alright


Is that a program you can pirate easily? I would like to be able to share files. Is there anywhere I can contact you outside of this thread like a discord account or something?

Is there a japanese wizchan with japanese wizards speaking japanese with the same rules here but with no gay mods/chadmin? If there isn't I was thinking of making one. I can probably only pass the n1 japanese test though since I've read most of tae kims grammar guide, but I don't want to make a japanese imageboard until I can at least pass the n3 so I can read the comments without trouble. I want to do this because I spend a lot of time here but it would be better time spent reading wizardly japanese posts so I can practice my japanese at the same time and no gaijin is good too. Would any other wizards like a website like this to be made? If any of you are interested and can speak japanese we can team up and I'll handle the programming, but I need someone to translate all the rules and text into japanese. I also need mods that can speak japanese and english to ban all the failed normal japanese posters.

2ch has a handful of boards dedicated to loser and single male types (ヒッキー、 負け組、無職・だめ、etc.). The closest one to the volcel nature of wizchan is probably 独身貴族 but that's not a boy's only club. I haven't really searched out sites like than in Japanese, though, so there might be others I'm not aware of.

Anyways in terms of interest I doubt you'd get a lot of Japanese users. There is a board on the English imageboard endchan, /librejp/, that's Japanese speaking only and has a decent sized user base of Japanese people, but IIRC they migrated there because of shady administration practices on the site they were using before. So I'm not sure that your site would get much traffic from that side in the absence of some extraordinary circumstances.

With regards to non-Japanese people I guess you might have more luck since it seems like there are a lot of people learning Japanese these days, but since it's only for virgins it'll probably be a pretty small user base. I'd be somewhat interested in the site, I guess, and if you need someone to translate rules or moderate I might be able to help. That's assuming this ever actually happens though, which I kind of doubt (no offense but I've never seen a project take off here).


Native japanese wizards won't come here to post everything they want in a thread, they don't even come here for the /jp/ board and its because everything here is in gaijin 言語.



> 独身貴族

Is that this website https://matsuri.5ch.net/single/?
I've never been to 2ch before but it doesn't look comfy and if there are normans there then I don't want to browse the site. I'm not looking to make a website for losers or single males, I just want a websites for wizards.

If I do make the website I don't want to start working on it in at least 2 months or maybe until this year ends because I'm busy with other stuff. I just made the thread to see who else is interested for now, but I'll start working on it later hopefully if I still have the motivation.

What is a danbooru gold account? I was looking at porn and now I see '20 blocked posts on this page' and I've never noticed that before. When I click on gold account link it says access denied and a log in page.


You need a gold acount to be able to browse images with lolicon/shotacon content or search for 2+ tags at once.
Also, don't listen to >>27972 , use Sankaku instead.


Go to http://beta.sankakucomplex.com/ , create an account, make sure that any filter that might block stuff is unchecked, now you can see everything including stuff like toddlercon that is banned elsewhere.


what tag is toddlercon? >>27974
Why use sankaku instead?

Dubs are almost never censored (4kids was a long time ago) or altered.
>Scripts are bastardized
Subjective, I say they are usually equal to the original in quality
>Voice actors misplaced
Again, it's subjective based on the particular anime/VA in question, but in general dub quality holds parity with subs

I think sub purists are the most annoying tbh, since they literally despise ALL dubs (regardless of quality) and refuse to acknowledge that people might DARE to prefer to listen in a language they understand


Isekai Izakaya is great, but Isekai Shokudo will always be superior.


Dubs completely subtract from the experience, its like listening to a song with a different singer in a different language and trying to pass it off as original.

Japanese VA's are more competent and genuine, whereas foreign dubs make people sound like cartoon characters or video games.

fucking wow
how about you go back to youtube comments section?

that being said, no idea why mods didn't remove this thread. nothing warranted it creation. nothing (except what i assume was drunkenness) stopped OP from posting in the general "recently watched" thread. moreover, several anons already posted opinions specifically on isekai izakakya and why it felt bland after isekai shokudou
