After being bullied out of anime for 4 years , I've just got back into the genre, my favorite thing I've watched in this current come back is madoka magica, does anyone have recommendations for animes I should watch next?

waiting to see your list…


If you like Madoka i would Recommend
Ojamojo Doremi there very little alike but they are both Magical succubus shows and can get a bit "dark" as the Youtubers and cool kids say


how can legend of the galactic heroes be right next to naruto on a recommendation list? lol i want an explanation from you


it was a fair question. what do you recommend?

you know, we do need more to go on to make recommendations. >>41793 had a point when stating anime is a diverse, and if you want good recommendations we need more to go on. madoka magica is popular with massive amount of people amongst whom there are a spectrum of different anime preferences. its like saying you want a metal recommendation but only mention you like slipknot.

i recommend you watch sousou no frieren. like madoka magica, it has broad appeal but it is also well made and is a rare instance of a show that is both good and very popular. like madoka magica, it is also an anime that "feels like anime" unlike something like LoGH.


Naruto is great. It's not a masterpiece like LOGH which is a deeply philosophical work, but it has really good fantasy as well as some of the best fighting application of said fantasy. Basically the jutsus are cool as fuck, the fights are cool as fuck. The concept of these hidden ninja villages which provide military support to the nations is cool as fuck. Even the writing and overall plot and stuff was good. Naruto is a good hero, an outcast class clown character. Sasuke has a decent backstory and I don't mind him being an edgelord. He clearly had trauma and was pushing away people who were trying to forge connections with him with the reasoning that he had to cast them aside to seek power to exact his revenge. It actually is a realistic depiction of the fucked up thinking that comes from trauma. Overall it's just good and solid with few flaws. I do have to admit that I never finished shippuden though. I will someday probably.


SpyxFamily is genuinely one of the best things I’ve seen in some time, is probably one of the few shows that I would watch with my family and recommend to anyone.

Is getting a dakimakura body pillow with an anime character on it sad? Pic related.

not him but if you live with your family isn't it kinda awkward to have mum wash your daki or do you wash it yourself..?


This is only tangentially related but every once in a while I wonder what it must be like to be some guy who works at a factory in some third world country producing cheap sex toys like sex dolls or that 20 lbs of ass and pussy thing. You know your entire existence is dedicated to helping random men cum. You are just a cog in some corporate machine dedicated to jacking off weird and lonely men everywhere. imagine you're the guy just packing silicon pussies into boxes all day long, one after the next in a seemingly endless line of identical pussies you know soon some dude somewhere will be cumming in, and to cap it all off your boss will be taking most of the profits while you do all the actual work. You must take the deal because you will starve and have no money which renders you completely helpless and unable to do anything or access any resources in society.


I mean, it's a paying job that puts food on the table and pays the bills. That being said, I'm sure the employee's there probably make jokes about their work to brighten their day.


Once saw some youtube documentary about a sex doll "doctor", a man who fixed those top expensive sex dolls, and he said some where too hot and he ended up fucking them.


No it isn't sad, I want one too

I see a lot of people being hyped about this anime. what makes it good? what males people watch it?

>i know! - i'll spite them by depriving myself of fun!


i just don't like the corporate artstyle


> (haven't seen any CG so far)
I have bad news for you, the cg is so good now its in all anime. The high budget ones have it so good that you cant realize it until you have an eye for it or dabbled into 3d animation yourself. Fucking ALL of the shows have it even for main characters often.


what does that even mean? Can you tell me the hallmarks of the "corporate" artstyle?


I haven't watched the anime, but I really enjoy the manga. I like the casual adventures, nice art and good pacing.

it's still faggotry, even if 2d, whereas the love for 2d lolis is the drive towards escaping this 3d demiurge-spawned hellprison, and that is the most noble endeavor one can have in this world.

Attack on Titan was unironically the peak of anime, the last peak was Madoka Magica. It's all downhill from here.


I don't think you know what the word peak means.


>Attack on Titan was unironically the peak of anime,
Oh thank God. I was worried it might be ironically peak. Thanks for the confirmation.


I hate how I can tell the age of somebody from their posts.

this is not a japanese cartoon it doesn't belong here


I would post in the cartoons thread if we had such a thing, but I don't think there is one.


Cafe Terrace and its Goddesses.
At its best it's Haganai done better, meaning it essentially has most of Wotakoi's believability, solid characterisations and even likability. It got to the point where the very ground's complex lighting pattern was a work of art.
At its worst it's inevitably Haganai also done worse, meaning, well, you're better off looking up Love Hina once again compared to the annoying situations which are expected from a harem. Also, while only the first two thirds of Wotakoi were good before it became generic, Cafe Terrace remains consistent up until the final episode.
Though fuck me do they nearly throw everything away had they not taken a shortcut which allows an open interpretation. Overall it's very much a wholesome and unique harem anime disguised as a cliched one with all the expected trappings and tropes. 9.5/10

Dimension W
Read a few volumes of the manga a while back. I have to say that the idea seems too much for me to digest. But the mere fact its a visual reconstruction of 90s scifi anime, and has a unique visual design, got my attention all throughout. It was something different with classic roots overall. 8/10


Shangri la frontier has become my most anticipated show and frankly I'm a bit angry they stole 2 minutes of air time from me this week with a singing bunny. I hate all music numbers in anime and it's especially bad in a show I actually enjoy because the song robs me of that show. At least this one is 25 episodes instead of 12.

Is it just me, or is anime made with normalfags in mind nowadays?
Back then, it felt like anime was made exclusively for children and/or huge nerds.
But now it not only feels like most people who consume weeb shit are huge normalfags, but the people who make said weeb shit too. This applies to both western and japanese audiences by the way.
You can not go into a romcom discussion these days without seeing everyone talking about how the romantic life shown in the show compares to their own.
You just keep coming across many shows that seem to validate normalfags' way of life and opinions in the past few years.
To me, anime and anime culture today doesn't feel like it did a decade ago at all.
I only started really getting into weeb shit back in late 2009/early 2010, so maybe I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.
What do you think Wizards? Is anime made for normalfags instead of people like you nowadays?

Of course stream services have to make a profit, do you think they do it out of charity for the studios, and will keep doing so indefinitely? The streaming world implosion will probably come before any other major economic event, unless they radically change the system in a way not yet predicted.


If the value of a streaming service was media delivery, sure.

I'm not convinced, seeing as the youtube model is apparently profitable. "What people watched at a given time" and of even more utility, "where and on what device they did it" - has *considerable* value when sold in a side industry.

For e.g. an insurance broker would very much like to know how often a given neighbourhood's population is at home on week nights, and thus how much higher they can get away with adjusting car premiums without cancellations. The ROI for that information used correctly would be measured in the hundreds per home per year - far in excess of what the service delivery cost.

Then add how the film & tv industry famously use creative accounting to mask and funnel income, including manufacturing tax losses (almost certainly in such a way that the suits other business ventures are the beneficiaries) and it's quite likely that a streaming service turning a profit could be considered a bad outcome.

Hell, making *any* taxable income in the modern era - at least in the markets I have worked in - is a good reason to sack the accountant for incompetence. There is no legitimate reason to turn a profit once an enterprise goes beyond a certain scale, because there's no intrinsic value in doing so - compared to realising gains through shell companies and service providers in tax friendly jurisdictions.

Circling back to the topic, I'm not too familiar with the specifics of .jp tax and finance laws but I have read that after the real estate bubble the regulations got a lot tighter for this sort of creative accounting and profit masking - which would suggest that the studios are ripe for exploitation when used by a foreign actor.

But as you rightly say, the implosion could well happen independently (or even be the kick starter) of the next recession.


>go to Jersey Mikes
>they play this as background music
"hey i'd like a large hoage"
"yeah I'd like chesse, lettuce, and
"and could you add mayo to tha"


Manga has always had a normalfag following in Japan, anime was more cliche, but that is changing as more people want to see their manga animated. Western compaines like Netflix is a big reason for anime becoming more mainstream in the west, they are funding multiple anime. And netflix loves pushing shit where doesn't belong, so your are going to see more anime normalfag behaviors (sex, cheating, etc), more diversity, more social-issues drama, more western-oriented, etc. This bleeds in Japan's own culture and you start to see more manga and anime appealing to the lowest of the low. It's disgusting.


Anime will stay the same, it will just be recontextualized ala >>40531

I went to a cinema showing of an anime series, it wasn't a movie it was one of those shortened versions of a series arc. People laughed at the appropriate moments but like they were conditioned to laugh like dogs given a command. The crowd was mostly hipsters and younger normalfags with their parents, as opposed to the usual weaboo crowd (though it is almost impossible to determine who is a weaboo since no longer requires effort).

There is a vast sea of Japanese films out there, and I can imagine most of /jp/ has only scratched the surface. What are the qualifications for a "hard to find Japanese film" you ask?
>rarbg, nyaa, kissasian doesn't carry what you're looking for, and pt's don't want your wizardly company
>the movie has no re-releases, or even a home video release at all
>the director doesn't even remember the production of the film you're after
What are some movies you've had interest in, but no way to watch?

I saw an obscure film called Village of Doom 1983.
It's about the Tsuyama massacre where a young man with TB murdered almost his entire village over the course of a single night. He was ostracized by succubi for having TB.
It's a great film. I like how it takes a very neutral view of the protagonist. It doesn't artificially portray him as a scumbag as he transforms from a nice guy into someone who just snaps.
The last 30 minutes are great. It's frantic and unrelenting as he runs through the town murdering everyone with his shotgun and katana with sadistic glee. There's a lot of first person camera shots too.
Unfortunately the only place I was able to find it was avistaz. It's a great tracker and I got into it pretty easily recently by hanging around on their invite discord server until they randomly did a sign up one day. I love old japanese films so it was well worth it for me. I highly recommend it for anyone interested.


I got in and kicked out due to inactivity few years ago. I'm such a fucking idiot.


I don't know much but interested in Japanese films. I saw this late one night when I was in prison lol. I literally had a stinky abo who couldn't read as a cellmate. He'd watch CSI all afternoon and night till he fell asleep while I studied. Past midnight obscure world cinema would play sometimes on the sbs network here and I saw this film milocrorze. It's fucking weird but funny.


Try Godzilla.


Just watched this after seeing this post. I know this movie is over 10 years old now but that slow motion sword fight was one of the best set pieces i've seen in a film in a long time. Hearing the director say he got the idea from classical Japanese scroll art makes it even better.

Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless. The world of imageboards needs a place for niche otaku discussion, but alas, no site caters to such interest. What with the modern day youth on this site, there'd probably just be a bunch of Vtuber threads to take all the anime discussion's place. What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?
