I haven't watched the Pokemon anime in a really long time, did they ever have another good series? I only know that they changed the animation style after all these years and they gave Ash a love interest or something? What do you wizards think of this series?

I liked how later on in Sun & Moon, she became the favorite succubus for the writers, so they gave her way more dialogue and screen time. Compared to the first half of the series, where she and her family had very little to do.

Suiren sort of became the main succubus once all the major arcs that involved Lillie were finished. I do love Lillie too though, she's easily the most emotionally invested character, and she's absolutely adorable.



Type: Wild is such a good song


>Iris = mix of brown/Native American
I think she's Indian, as in India Indian. I assume most of the brown people in Pokemon, barring the obvious Hawaiian and Okinawa settings, are meant to be Indian, at least in X/Y.
I've seen some Japanese artists assume the same for the water type gym leader in Sword/Shield.
>Lana = Chinese (her outfit resembles Chinese clothing)
I don't really see it. But I've seen people say the same for Rosa.


Nowadays it would be Jojo or MHA. I'm not really sure what else, I want to say Attack on Titan but it looks like that really plummeted under people's interests a long time ago.
Also there's one generation missing, the Naruto and Bleach days of the 00's, but I guess most of those people grew up on Pokemon too.

Satou would about 37 if we base it around the time the original Welcome to the NHK book was published. If they made another book or series that revisited his life in the present day what do you think it would be about?

The only reason the show is popular is for it not being a wish-fullfilment series.

Anyone know why nips do this job? I coulnt google anything about it.


What? This is not an exclusive Japanese thing, people all over the world use tally counters to determine an average of how many people go through one street, store or location of a given day, week, etc. If you live in a high density area and pay attention, it's not rare to see those in use.

Let's fix that. I am currently watching part 4 and plan to watch part 5 afterwards and read the manga's. It is not as good as part 3 so far that I've watched but I've been told it gets better later on.

Thoughts on the 1993 OVA?


I just finished part 4. I didn't like it at all. Josuke was annoying as a character and it often made no sense how he, or actually anyone defeated any of the enemies. What made the previous parts interesting is gone completely from part 4 and is just replaced by what seems like experimental designs and scrapped ideas for Stands or powers. Sometimes when Josuke beat up people with Crazy Diamond it barely made a dent in them and other times a few punches was all it took to win. This theme of varying power levels occurs throughout the whole 39 episodes. The main villain here didn't have any impact on the story or character development - he could have been defeated at any point and it wouldn't matter. Right towards the end was possibly the worst writing I've ever seen. The 2nd bow was a huge asspull, Stands gaining new abilities and one person controlling more than one Stand was something that came out of nowhere. The last fight was awful because [spoiler]Kira just kept using the same move. What happened to Sheer Heart Attack? And seriously how could Rohan, Jotaro and Keichi not hear them fighting around a corner?

post all your favorite japan/anime artists. you can post hentai artists too since most of the good ones make hentai.

The first image is from 廃狼@新刊よろしく yotushiku something, I can only read the end of it. He is an artist on pixiv, I don't know if he posts his work anywhere else, but everything he posts is amazing.

The second picture is from an artist I found on pixiv called SPEC. I don't like most of his work, but this one is in a good style I wish I could see more.

The third image is made by Akyuun, another artist I found on pixiv. I like the colors, it looks dreamy.

I'll post more artists I like later. Please add whatever art you like.

why does anime have to be so fucking long? i cannot be fucked to watch an anime more than 24 episodes. I (unintentionally) dropped Duel Monsters, Slayers, Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and some other shit because I cannot be fucked to watch that many episodes.

I don't even LIKE anime that much, even when though I have a MAL from 2012 which is older than 90% of the people on the internet who claim to like anime.

poor wizkid is insecure and only wants someone to love him for who he really is ;(

he will find out the hard way and in ten years he will be posting here.


if you are enjoying a long anime then you wont mind watching all those episodes

so if the premise of a long show looks good to you, just start watching it. if it's shit you can drop it.

i dont understand this culture of anime fans of never dropping a show.


Very much, a good show makes one wish it would go on for longer. I'm very much forcing myself through anything I've started though, I guess there's just something about leaving things unfinished that bothers me, it really is pure torture at times.


Speaking of, episode 23 of Plunderer is out, knowing I need to see it makes me cringe.


I agree. Streaming tv shows are like this now. I miss the times when you could drop in on any show and not have to be familiar with all the backstory, just as long as you tune in before the episode starts. Then the series would only reserve major backstory episodes for two parters. But then they starting making these part of the season finale and premiere, so if you missed these two episodes you wouldn't have any fucking idea what is going on in the current season. Farscape was like this. The only anime I can remember that was episodic was Black Jack, you could jump into any episode and simply know it was about some medical oddity Black Jack was encountering.

Is this show any good? I always hear people recommending it, but I've never seen it at all.

Which version is the best way to watch it: Japanese, English or Finnish?

Yeah. I think the reason it became popular in Japan is because it captured the common demoninator of Nordic and Japanese culture, which is the love of order. The plots and characters in Moomin are all about upholding and breaking "how things are supposed to be". The author conveys that order can harm and that going against it is sometimes the right and rewarding thing to do. For order-loving cultures such as nordics and japan it's a powerful and significant message. It's also rare for a children's show to have that kind of moral slant.

For example the Hemules are supposed to represent state authorities, they're nice and friendly if you play really nice, but as soon as you do something weird they go full assblast. Another example is the plot device where Moomin go into hibernation every winter like clockwork, but in one of the books the main character wakes up, and instead of going back to sleep he goes on adventure and experiences winter, which moomins are never supposed to experience. The fox in red, Filifjonkan, is super neat and etiquette-minded and a perfect family mother but under the surface is a pent-up and anxious mess. Sniff (the brown guy with big ears) never succeeds in anything because he is a coward and never dares to take risks. Snufkin is serene and happy because he is self-sufficient and can walk away from anyone/anything that tries to burden him.

And so on. It's all very well and subtly done.


I just started watching the 90s series of this. I just like how the plots are actually unique. I guess when I watch the Japanese-style of animation, my mind immediately expects a bunch of cliches to happen; but they don't. The world and setting is so bizarre, and I think I'm falling in love with this. Thanks for posting this.

Fuck yes, Snuffkin in amazing. If there was ever a character that defined a wizard to me, it would be him.


Which Japanese version of this is best?

This is a highly underrated, extremely fun series that can occasionally get pretty sad and heavy. No one talks about this hidden gem enough.

It started getting a little tedious around season four.


I got a secret I can't tell.
Guess I'd better cast my spell.


What do you mean by "tedious"? Did you not enjoy it? Doremi is a character driven show. The succubi, the classmates, the witches, wizards, parents. I'm hoping you didnt read that outdated guide that hypes up doremi as a depressing show

I despise this series.

Don't give me the "IT MAKES A TURNAROUND IN CHAPTER 132498579182, AND IT'LL ALL BE WORTH IT." Even with the turnaround, all it becomes is the epitome of "Jus b urself :^)" logic. Without the turnaround it's just embarrassment, and I have enough of that thinking about myself.

This is a series made by normies to laugh at wizards.

She was my waifu when I was in highschool, before I learned the Dark Arts. All females are whores and anime sucks, in hindsight.


The anime is pretty great,a good representation of what many wizards go through,tomoko is just an insert for pretty much any Japanese otaku/wizard (with all her perverted delusions) she's just a succubus because that attracts viewers. Also the anime had a great ending,not Deus ex machina,no "someone will save you" shit like in NHK,It was just pure happy acceptance,a "fuck them" attitude towards life,the OVA was good too.

The Manga was good at first but then she became a full fledged normie,the focus changed from "very awkward succubus with social anxiety and delusions" to 'very awkward lesbian undertones" and that shit's not funny at all.

Now I'm reading another Manga called "Neeko wa tsurai yo" about a 23 year old NEET (and needless to say she's literally me,age and all) and I find it very relatable,no miraculous "change",no "savior" just pure suffering,just like my life.


When it came out i was in 6th grade, and i actually thought that it rapresented me. Idk if someone thought that too.


Are you 17 now? Identifying as a teenage female as a preteen male must of felt weird. I guess as long as you came out of school as a virgin everything is alright


Actually im 18 now. And yes im a virgin lol. I dont really care about it. Its just a choice of life

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

>ITT: OP is me but actually capable of putting this into words

Seriously though, I feel you. It's one of the few comforts I have, and I actually keep a list of the ones I've watched, but when I look at it a lot of times I see something only only remember the premise of it and a hazy idea of the ending. A lot of my watchlist is just things I want to re-watch.


95% of the time I watch anime completely drunk. I have only rewatched one anime in my life. Renkin san-kyuu magical pokaan forty two times now. I have no interest watching most anime more than once and I ALWAYS wait until the anime has come out on bluray subbed in 1080p unless its an old anime so I am always watching it at its best quality uncensored with any animation errors corrected.

Yes, this wasn't a problem the first number of series I saw but now when I've seen significantly more it is. Also my brain has probably detoriated as the years have flown by, I keep a list and I give every show a score but I really regret not taking time to write a small review on each show.


I don't remember most anime plots because i can't follow them in the first place.I have low IQ and attention span so I always get confused and can't make sense of the plot, let alone comprehend the deeper meanings behind the story.I almost always have to resort to wikis or YouTube videos for explanations.I have to admit it's quite frustrating.Thats why I tend to prefer lighter anime which have less intricate plots

When I consume any kind of media only once (except music), I only remember very specific lines/scenes. Surely you randomly remember the most intriguing bits and pieces, right? If you really want to remember well, I suggest watching repeats or reading the source material.

>I keep a list and I give every show a score
I put the date I finished watching. Then again, I'm a huge date autist - give me any title from 2002 and on, I could tell you what season it debuted and if/when I watched it.

>mfw he watched Shakugan no Shana S3
