My brain is too fucked to pull two intelligible sentences together, so pardon me if I don't make any sense.

As there are just too many manga, it is a huge pain to dig into this pile to find good ones to read. So why don't we share each other great manga, and good mangaka.

I'd recommend Fumetsu no Anata e (To You, the Immortal), pic related.

Story of some sort of immortal being of the shape of a sphere, has the ability to imitate object and being in his surrounding. It bit by bit, start to experience the world, pain, hardship, death, not having any idea of anything of who it is, and slowly develop of conscience. It's set in a fantasy world, where the clothing and customs are loosely inspired by early Japan, and maybe the Ainu.

Beautiful and detailed artstyle, incidentally the author of this manga is Ooima Yoshitoki which can explain why it reminds me of Koe no Katachi (same author after all).

It's 黒 (black) the other one outside the circle is 誠 (truth).


his group is called"black justice alliance" in spanish


Is there any site out there has good quality images, you don't have to download anything, and you don't have to make an account to view stuff? Bonus for putting all of the images for a chapter on a single page.

So gay that he had to rape Casca?


If you seriously couldn't interpret what that scene meant then I think you might be mentally handicapped


Gays don't rape succubi.


Mob Psycho has such a bland, soulless art style. Same with OPM.

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?

How do I go about playing Amagami fellas?
First off, VNDB says there was a patch done in 2012, but 4chan /jp/ says an English translation is still being undergone, so I just want a conclusive verdict on it, only really want to play Tsukasa's arc so I don't mind if other ones are incomplete desu
also will I need a PS2 emulator or something


The patch released in 2012 only translates the first day of the game.


The translation itself is done now (and has been for over a year, I think) but the editing is still at only ~30%, and they're not releasing another patch until it's complete, apparently.

>also will I need a PS2 emulator or something

That and probably an ISO of the game. PCXS2 should be fine. I've had slowdowns on it with certain sections of other games before, but Amagami is the one game that never gave me a problem, despite having a fairly old computer.

Bump because I don't want this thread to get pushed off while I'm not looking.

I'm reading 水月 right now. Finished the maid route and am now going through the one for the childhood friend. It's pretty good and comfy, has quite a few references to Japanese mythology and a few supernatural elements as well. Also makes it hard to differentiate between what's real and what's a dream at times.


How do you feel about anime VN adaptations as compared to ordinary VNs? What are the pros and cons of them, in your opinion?

Personally I prefer watching anime VN adaptations. Maybe I'm an uncultured swine. I prefer to just passively enjoy the atmosphere and music and the semi-coherent VN-adapted story. I don't like having to actively interact with the computer to move things along. Audiovisual production quality is higher with the anime too, typically.


I haven't watched many VN adaptations, but my impression is that they take the VN and then arbitrarily crop and butcher the story nd characters to be suited for an animated show. Not a good recipe in my eyes.

Can anyone recommend some recent (say 2015 onwards) good fighting anime?


Megalo box is really good.
There is also Baki 2018
The King of Fighters: Destiny if you are not bothered by full CGI
I have heard good things about Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi but haven't watched it myself yet.
And there is a new Yu Yu Hakusho Special which is also on my to watch list.

That should keep you busy for awhile.


Hinomaru Sumo


>new Yu Yu Hakusho Special
Why though?

Okay, I just finished the the series.
and I have to ask - is this a joke? Like a big decades long meme? I think this was the worst anime I've ever seen. A pseudo-philosophical LARP. Like does it actually have a point? A meaning? Beause I think I just witnessed someone's acid trip.

Unironically is the worldwide fame a LARP? Or is it like with the emperor's new clothes, where nobody mentions that he's actually naked?

What the acual fuck? Either I'm a brainlet retard or I'm the only sane person on earth - but what the fuck did I just watch?

It reminds me of those old french psychological art films… What a fucking waste of time…

By anime standards, Eva is very-very good. Though that isn't saying lot, considering most anime are trash. By general standards it is only mediocre. Its biggest issue is that it falls into the same problem as most pretentious art films do - that it thinks that not telling important things which are required for the viewer to completely comprehend Eva is artsy and whatnot. No, no it isn't high art at all, it is bad storytelling. Someone who watches Eva or other art-fart stuff shouldn't need to browse the net to understand what happened in the last half of the movie/series.

But after all this trashing I still say that Eva is among my favorite anime. It is certainly a memorable piece and besides, after seeing 2001 A Space Odyssey it doesn't even seem pretentious in comparison to that crap. 2001 is the biggest meme in the world, I'm a tolerant person but while watching 2001 I was literally having physical discomfort and pain. I swear I never waited the end titles more eagerly than in the case of 2001. NOW that movie is overrated and pretentious.


Rei scares me ;_;

Despite all the memes and hype around Evangelion I consider it a masterpiece. I can see why somebody would hate it: unlikable characters, unnecessary cryptic plot. What I actually find well done about NGE is the journey to depths of the mind of the characters and that's something you rarely see on a medium like anime that overexploits generic archetypes until exhaustion. The final message and the process of building it are also really interesting: due to mere fact of existing you are subjected to the pressures of a world always pinching you, and if we add to this the presence of other beings to who you're unable to connect or understand, suffering is amplified. Each of us as a tiny island in at vast sea in such a way that communication is just subtle falsehood and misunderstanding (we only grasp sketches of the others) while the external world overruns us. What is the solution? to return to the peace of oneness where boundaries, the cause of pain, are deleted. But Shinji still chose to live, i.e, to suffer. That's almost Nietzschean.

All this sentiment of hopelessness and despair is perfectly conveyed with the weird imagery of The End of Evangelion. The scene at the elevator with Misato, when the doors close and then Shinji looks her for the last time and realizes he's utterly alone in this wretched and fucked up world is perfect.

I have ranted so much. Anyway, to enjoy Evangelion really depends on your state of mind and your capacity to like some of the characters.

What I liked about it was how human and lifelike the characters were, which anime characters very seldom are. I didn't really care about the philosophic ambition of the show, that was background noise for me. I remember especially liking Gendo and Asuka. I related to the self-destructive ambition the inability to express and communicate one's true feelings and desires, and the festering resentment that arises from these things.

I watched it many years ago so forgot most of the details, but that was the main impression.


Tell us your anime likes and dislikes or some sort of information about what you're looking for, or just examples of past shows you've enjoyed, and hopefully someone will recommend you a good show to watch.

>plot driven
>interesting fantasy or sci-fi worlds
>interesting social commentary or philosophical stuff
>hero archetypes
>good character arcs
>political intrigue
>fights where strategy is involved rather than just powering up with beams or determinationing your way through it

>romance (esp. pedo shit)
>boring slice of life shit where nothing outside the realm of normality happens (cute succubi doing cute things)
>high school setting and children mcs in general (not always I've just seen a lot of them and it's getting old especially as I myself am getting older)
>slow paced
>fan service that takes away from the plot and wastes time
>comedic relief/gags (situational comedy is fine but the japanese tend to do this annoying shit where they put on wonky music and people yell at each other and they call it comedy)
>style over substance (eg, lain, technolyze, FLCL)

I liked it.


Tried Death Note?


I'm looking for a show that is about genuine platonic love. Brotherhood, etc.

I've come to this realization after watching tons of comedic, ecchi, slice of life cutesy animes. The characters precisely because of their simplified caricatured personalities form together a perfect universe - there are no imperfect parts to the characters, they're idealized to the utmost, every feature of their fits perfectly, the relationships as well. Anime is the better version of our world. I'm happy I have anime in my life. I can feel a huge variety of emotions while watching it, which are inaccessible to me in any other medium, be it movies, books, TV series, actual real life. I feel no connection to anybody in the real world. I care not for even for my parents. Yet I still cry for these animated characters. Nothing moves me but anime, the art style, the characters, the music, everything about it fills my soul with joy (and sadness, anger - the whole emotional scope, but mostly joy)

I hope when I die I'll go to 2D heaven.

I think he means cartoons as in what the west produces as opposed to anime.


Anime is still a cartoon.


So you agree that Anime is dumb and ugly? I don't get it.


And your mum is still an ape.


That is why I call it the superior art and the rest, inferior arts. Even when I had to mention anime in a professional essay or something.

Anime is so overwhelming as a newcomer. Other people seem to know all these terms and shows and characters. How do I get into it? I’ve accepted anime as my religion and I want to dive right in.

Watch mainstream anime YouTubers and get your recommendations from them. It'll also help you learn some of the terms. Alternatively you can watch any of the super popular shows and you'll probably have a good time https://myanimelist.net/topanime.php?type=bypopularity


id say start to get into some short series first, dont go straight into the 800+ episode animes, the longest thing in reading/watching is jojos bizarre adventure


Go for movies as they are usually self-contained. Long-running shonen anime is a good introduction.


How's the "progress" op? I hope you hate anime now


counterpoint: don't watch any anime youtubers, they're all mouthbreathing retards. spend your time watching anime instead
