Reminder that an in depth enjoyment of naruto is anti-normalfag, as regular normals enjoy naruto on a very superficial level, maybe only watching a few episodes every now and then, and internet/4chan discord chads hate naruto because it isn't hardcore weeb enough.
Naruto is perfect for wizards. Pain is the perfect anti-natalist wiz.

Its not clear if you are wanting anime recommendations or not but if you liked naruto it seems probable that you would like the other huge popular shonens. Bleach, HunterxHunter, One Piece, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho. See if one of those interests you, but there are plenty more if those ones arent to your taste.

I really hate nintendo's recent trend of brown bait characters. They always manage to make them look like skanky british succubi rather than exotic beauties somehow.

I just watched the first three episodes of Flying Witch. I wanted to like it but I'm dropping it now. My initial impressions are outlined below.

The characters in this are poorly developed and dimensionless. Lame, bland characters like this are crippling to any SOL series. Furthermore, none of the characters are likable.

The script of the show is very dry and boring. It feels like a rough draft. The scenes themselves progress very slowly and screentime is constantly wasted. This is not a pacing issue but simply one of low value per unit of time.

The atmosphere is not immersive. It feels artificial and forced.

Visually, the setting looks okay but the character designs are ugly. The colour palette is bland and boring.

That is all I have to say.
I'm happy to hear other opinions.

Watching Dr. Stone. It's much better than I expected it to be so far.

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.

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.

What >>29647 said. It is a pretty accurate portrayal, just not one worth watching (and not a good series as a whole). Still, I liked the ending of the anime (which is different to the manga afaik), after trying to be normal she just goes back to her room laughs it off and goes back to her pc.

The manga is fun but I've enough of high school life. I wish someone would make something like it but with the mc older and more isolated. There are a couple of titles out there but they're too short or the plot has too many fantastical elements for me to really get into it.

I just can not get past the cringe. I can't. It just makes me think it's a cruel fucking joke, "You gotta get past the cringe, anon *snicker*, it'll get gud then *giggle*." Not to mention every cringy moment triggers a mirrored memory of my own that I've been trying so desperately to FORGET.

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.

Highly disagree with the OP on the fact that anime is perfect and causes sentimental feelings but he has somewhat of a point.

When I first got into anime, I was younger and I liked it for not being as ugly and bland as most western cartoons airing at the time. It had action, pretty characters and was darn cool to me at that time. Nips really know how to draw people into their works.

However I got older, and realized that anime isn't "all that". Same formulas used in every genre, same character archetypes, similar stories, etc. etc. It wasn't that anime was bad, however it is simply a type of media that panders to an audience, so of course these things were going to happen and years of watching it was going to make me notice this. So whenever someone told me anime was a "masterpiece" or "profound" (like Madoka Magica, Lain, Cowboy Bebop, etc. etc.) I'd simply view the anime as mediocre or not as thought provoking as people thought it was. (Truthfully it really wasn't to be honest).

I feel like japs feel the same way, especially since they live around this stuff unlike the westerners who overrate it. Anime/light novels as a medium is largely directed at teenagers and children. Even the "seinen" anime are. Adults seem to be more into manga, visual novels, and video games. The only anime that really attract adults seem to be "moe" or fujo//u/ pandering (and maybe even isekai). Every other anime seems to have a smaller older adult audience and a larger child/teen/young adult view group.

Why is this? I guess it has somewhat to do with the "take it easy" phrase that /jp/ uses. Jap adults have to work arduous schedules at their jobs and their lives are constantly filled with stress and trying to have a good standing in society (high suicide rate is not there for no reason). That's why they love simple "moeshit" anime like Kemono Friends and Is Your Order a Rabbit? The characters are cute, the anime is easygoing, and it simply relaxing. No shounenshit and deepshit with constant shoving down philosophy and morals down your throats, none of that. Who wants to hear the same dull kindergarten tier philosophies over and over again that every adult is perfectly aware of after they come home from work? People rather watch something more comfortable and enjoyable. Probably why isekai is popular over there too. They can self insert into another world away from their stressful lives.

So, I guess I have a love hate relationship wiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

That's all media. Actually I feel anime does this less than western media does. Because they can afford to experiment a bit and break out of moulds because of how cheap anime is to make.

A few web novels I found recently have been really good especially since I haven't been enjoying any manga or anime lately. I've been reading this web novel about swinging http://novel18.syosetu.com/n2838cn/ and a few others that have been really good. It's been my best fap years which was really unexpected since I never read and don't expect much from text to being exciting.

Who else enjoys japanese novels?

Reading the monogatari LNs right now after having watched most of the anime. They’re pretty good, and have some minor tidbits that the anime leaves out. Has anyone read the katanagatari LNs? I liked the anime and it’s by the same author so I’m considering picking those up too.

And yes, I am just gonna bump this old zero reply thread back from the depths.
