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).

New Berserk coming out today


I guess Berserk taught me to never start an ongoing manga.
We'll never see the end of this shit. Most likely he'll die and his relatives gonna publish some scripts, hope he has any.

Innocent (SAKAMOTO Shinichi)

What a true disappointment. I was expecting another wizardly masterpiece like Kokou no Hito instead of liberal art degree indoctrination course about gender roles and transsexuals. Even ignoring that aspect, the story is painfully awful despite using the french revolution as a writing prompt, with shounen anime fights and character temporarily becoming retarded for plot convenience at all stages. The art however is just magnificent, its amazing how much effort and quality work is put into every frame no matter the size. It really is a shame the writing is THIS bad, because by god is the art just absolute perfection.

>Innocent has better characters and a better story.
Honestly I thought the exact opposite way, especially Marie was such an abhorrent character start to finish, whose entire purpose was to push anti gender role ideology while being nothing like a real human is any fashion what-so-ever.


around 300 chapters into Kingdom and it is Very good but some of the magic is wearing off however I expect it to pick back up.
600 chapters and sadly ongoing but worth it for strong characters and some very fun/dramatic scenes.
Getting a little bored now of the manga and admit my standards have lowered as there is rarely anything that catches my attention anymore as I have read anything that is f my preferred genre.

Has anyone experience in cutting out anime from your life? I'm thinking of doing a NoAnime September and seeing how it will turn out.

Anime has consume my life and I keep buying anime merchandise, watch anime all day, and have turned my room into an anime haven. It made me fap all the time to anime succubi and I am always weak and tired now, and when I am I watch some anime to feel happy - it is like a drug.

Even after finishing anime it doesn't stop for me as I go on gelbooru and look up pictures of anime characters I like.

So does anyone have experience quitting anime or cutting down on this habit?

I haven't watched an anime since Kemurikusa. I think that might be my last anime. Even before that, I had not watched anime regularly for years. If you still watch anime and play vidya regularly, you are probably in your early twenties or younger. When you get to 25, that's the wall. I'm almost five years past the wall now.

It's okay, man.



> When you get to 25, that's the wall.

"The wall"? What exactly happens around 25 that anime and vidya isn't ok anymore? It's certainly good to care about other things in life, but enjoying anime and vidya beyond 25, 30, whatever is fine. Never quite understood this idea that once you hit a certain age, entire genres of entertainment should be discarded. Countless animated entertainment has been made and enjoyed by people in their 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond. Miyazaki is a notable example, though there must be many others. Modern Doom is being developed by guys who grew up on old school Doom. If those adults can delight in anime and vidya, why can't others?

I hope I never get bored of anime; it's good fun.


There's a bunch of different things that will happen that will ruin your enjoyment of anime, ill try to mention some

>Eventually running out of anime to watch

In my experience the only people who still like anime are the ones who haven't watched enough yet. There are some rare cases but those fall into sunk cost fallacy.

>99% of anime watchers are cancer posers

The anime fan base is cancer. There is no difference between the types of people who watch anime anymore, the average /a/ guy is as much of a normie as the /jp/ otaku, and both are as cringe as the high school narutards

>Anime has become a mainstream commodity to consume

You will not find anyone anymore that actually enjoys anime. It's going to be just people who either watch anime for le epic otaku e-cred, to update their anime list, or to brag about how much moe or shounen they watched.

>Anime is a flawed medium

Eventually you will get tired of 12 episode VN shilling, seasonal garbage that the masses seemingly eat up. The 50 year old wagie succ that does voice overs for your loli moe that you didn't care about before will start to taint the pure image they are trying to portray. The storylines all end the same and end abruptly, if you get involved in a long series the writing is Marvel capeshit tier even in the most "mature" artpiece titles, with retcons, red herrings, and deus ex machinas out the ass. It doesn't matter if you're watching shounen, moe, seinen, or 2deep4u…they all share these flaws.

>The genius writers of good anime from old days are now bitter corporate shills who cant create anything original.

Anime has lost all it's creativity. There hasn't been any new or interesting trends. Original works are a thing of the past. Everyone is too afraid of making something new and failing.

P.S I love anime. Im a real anime fan and saw years worth of anime, but to keep watching it knowing all this I simply cant just "not care" as I don't derive some sort of masochistic pleasure from watching garbage.

I largely agree with the diagnosis of modern anime. The best times for anime, and perhaps digital culture more generally, are over. I tend to watch pre-2010 stuff nowadays, though I'll watch the odd new release here and there.

Sticking more with previous content and not paying much attention to modern anime and its fan-base helps. I've watched anime for a few years and am 26 soon, no sign yet of getting bored with anime. Your point about not having watched enough is fair though, I watch ~10-15 anime a year, which is likely less than many.

The lack of imagination and daring is in everything nowadays. But if one is going to watch anything, anime still seems more varied, fun and free of Western moralism than the alternatives. It doesn't seem worth giving up wholesale on anime or animated entertainment in general. There's a lot out there, even if one entirely ignores modern anime.

Pic is from Captain Future, an interesting and enjoyable sci-fi made in 1978. A good 52 episodes.

Opinions on Nichijou? I think it's a good comedy Slice Of Life anime. How about you guys?

What was different aside from Nano not being a student the whole time? The anime was pretty faithful otherwise and the animated Helvetica Standard segments are nice. HS is a good read too along with City.


The art on the manga gets really bad and lazy at times while the anime looks super cozy and pretty. Really brings up those characters better. They also rearranged all the sketches for better pacing. I remember in the manga, specially the "firing weapons" routine happening too often to the point of being a little annoying. The manga sometimes you'll get several stories involving violence in a row which ruins the cozy sol mood while the anime spaced those out pretty well I felt.


Maybe he's deaf.


I'm pretty sure he's being sarcastic.


Nichijou was excellently well done. 9/10, maybe a 9.5

I had a sream about Satania where I rescued her from a cell. You had to open an iron grated trapdoor above the cell that was basically a crawl space. After I saved her her information came up in a white text box. She cuddled with me and kissed me on the cheek. I could feel the warmth of the kiss too.

It was a good dream.

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

Or, they could have made an actual proper Doremi movie. I would have rather an in universe film about something like Pop's friends becoming witches, or a film where it's set one year after the Dokkan finale. Hell, a film where they get introduced to Majo Rhythm would have been good to. But nah, lets have three whiney toasties take up a majority of the film. Even the three broads going INTO the Doremi universe would have made a much better film.

As for X-rated? Make the movie about Onpu guy and his lolicon addiction, would have been way better.


>as fuck
teen and gay
Your anger isn't just misplaced, it's completely ungrounded in reason. Don't fall mad because they didn't make a film about Doremi, a 20-something ear old anime that ended solidly after a long run. Instead be glad that they made an inoffensive, wholesome original film and within it just happened to mention and take inspiration from the lessons of Doremi. It's okay to feel a void within when something dear comes to an end, especially when the conditions of the ending don't suit your taste. But to get angry when an anime studio doesn't resurrect a series for a quick buck… Manbabay cringe tier emotions, not basedpilled and very zoomy too fam. How could they have even? The cast have all outgrown the capabilities of their roles, Majo Rikka's seiyu might even be dead, DEAD. Reruns of the anime haven't been popular among the shoujo crowd so they wouldn't see profits from even their target demographic. Imagine getting MEMEd by a dedicated shitposting board in to watching a little succubi's show from the PS1 era and then using its inevitable end as a basis for your HATE. LM ass off.

Japan is slow to change because it's full of bug men. It changes every 20 years catching up to the west it relies on.


Why are Western companies funding Japanese companies to make products that are 20 years out of date, in your view?


American comics and cartoons are a dead industry outside of Disney, pretty much all their former fans ran to anime so the USA wants a piece of that pie

The worry (and it's a legitimate concern) is that the Americans will use their money to force the same ideals that ruined their own comic industry into anime and ruin that too.


American comics are dying but the cartoon industry is trucking along alright.

What do you speculate the next trend in anime will be?
We had moe and it seems as if iseaki is still in full force but waning and I cannot imagine what the next trend will be so I am curious what you wizards speculate.

I do not think Moe will go away we will always have cute succubi doing cute things but maybe it will be different I think perhaps the art style will change and sadly feel that loli stuff may become rarer as more and more normalfags watch anime to the point that MAL reviews on loli anime is critical of the fact there is a loli in it featured with some fan service.

I am secretly hoping that more depressing anime gets made and even some anime that is entirely in black and white like a manga I love the visuals in anime but manga can really look so much better for some stories.

Sorry for the brainfart

I feel like if one piece was less up its own ass about storybuilding and le foreshadowing major characters that show up 400 chapters later, it would be the perfect shonen-action series. Personally what I want in a shonen adventure series is cartoony violence and gore, less annoying female protagonists, 10-13 year old protag, and dark stories/fights that have actual impact instead of cliche powerboosts and the "WITH FRIENDS BY MY SIDE, WE'LL ALWAYS WIN THE FIGHT" routine. But with all the shit shonen series that exist these days, I wish there were at least a couple vulgar gag manga to fill the void.


Anime will move away from being a form of entertainment and will be increasingly distilled down to being merely a marketable aesthetic or wank fuel. Anime, in conjunction with video games, will become a means for real human femoids to extract cash from men.


Anime has always been about making money.

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…

>The only thing worse I've seen was the Made in Abyss movie
That movie was fucking amazing and I can't wait for the next season.
Did you actually watch the show because the movie was basically the same as the show only with a better animation budget. Tragity, gore, and human experimentation included.

And no, Bondrew isn't based on Nazi or troupes about Nazi.
Though if you want to go in that direction then you should look up Japan's history of human experimentation of WW2. Not saying it was based on that ether but lets just say it would be more likely to be inspiration then shit all the way in Germany.
Do you just not remember the backstory of mitty and nanachi?
What Bondrew did to them and hundreds of other children?
Or all the heavy body horror within the series in general?


Is there a good torrent for the latest evangelion movie?


I wish I didn't just google that abyss trash, everyone involved in making it should be ashamed of themselves, and the creator is a disgusting person


Can't you just direct download from one of the free streaming sites?


I use https://www6.kissanime.so/anime-list.html to direct download most anime. If I can't find it there I'll probably just torrent it off nyaa.si

I'm watching Goblin Slayer, I stupidly watched the movie first, but it was still understandable to me. The series is good and explain his backstory, it's pretty fun to watch even if it's for normalfags. The series is super simple, hero hates goblins because they killed his parents/village and travels around accepting quests to kill goblins. Gets a party of elf archer, lizard man, dwarf and succubus priestess. Generic anime that normalfags like but really fun to watch.


Did you mean to post this in a thread?


>even if it's for normalfags
I never understood this criticism. Is it due to the "super simple" part? What's a non-simple anime to you? Evangelion? This anime elitism stuff these days is retarded.


Goblin Slayer is a quality anime


This really didn't need to be it's own thread dude.
We have several threads you could have posted this in.
