The websites were closed forever, the owners said.

I am so sad and heartbroken, as are hundreds of thousands of other people who loved the website.

Here's an article on it: https://geekculture.co/pirate-streaming-sites-kissanime-kissmanga-shut-down-permanently-as-japan-cracks-down-on-piracy/

Share scenes from anime you like, found interesting, or that caught your attention.
You can also explain what you like or found interesting about it.

I'll begin, in this one scene, which is from an anime for kids, you can be misled into thinking that these two had sex. It gives that impression, which makes a scene that should be sad and romantic, a hilarious one.

>Big-O came out 5 years after NGE. That surprised me
Believe it or not this is the only thing many people know about Big-O. After the finale aired many viewers were pissed off about the gobbledygook ending, they felt they got "Evangelion'd." The surge of arguments about it was noticed by the rest of the community, and that's the one thing they remember it for.



For me, it's the "hear the voice of the world" scene from episode 16 of Star Driver. I find it to be very enigmatic and moving, a beautiful expression of life.

Any animes similar to welcome to the NHK?
It doesn't have to revolve around being a hikikomori, but i liked the theme of a succubus wanting to save a boy

Can't think of any.


Not an anime but the manga Himizu has something like that, it's much darker and more hopeless than NHK though


Fuck I hate youtube embeds. I keep thinking they're pictures and clicking on them by accident.


For me they always crash my shitty browser when I click on them.


This advice pertains to Firefox on old Thinkpads, but it might work for you too. Use enhanced-h264ify or Piped Redirects.

The new Love Live music video is CUTE CUTE CUTE !!!!!! The song sounds pretty good too.

I'm still undecided about how I feel about the Nijigasaki generation. This latest release looks promising though. I worry that the characters might be poorly written despite the musical content being decent.

The future direction of the franchise seems unclear at this point. I'm hoping that we'll get at least one more anime season for Aqours. It looks like they're starting to release solo music albums for each Aqours member. Hopefully Corona doesn't seriously affect the financial viability of the franchise.

A new generation has been announced recently ("Love Live Superstar"). At this point that generation is a total wild card. I'm cautiously optimistic about the smaller size of the group though (5 members). Larger group sizes mean that some members can be kind of neglected; this is particularly true in the animated content. So a smaller group might have better character development. It'll probably also diminish any scheduling problems with the various seiyuus. On the other hand though, if one character is a bad singer then it will have a stronger effect on the overall quality of the vocals. So hopefully they will all be good vocalists.

Anyway, let's have a thread about MY FAVOURITE FRANCHISE OF ALL TIME. Yay!

No spoilers ITT plz. Let's discuss how much we love Love Live and how we feel about the future of the franchise. Let's post musical content and art, and talk about our favourite characters and ships! Who is the best singer and what are your favourite songs? Will the soul of the franchise and fanbase be preserved as these new generations are introduced?

This is definitely one of their best albums.



Cute x3


I couldn't find Awaken the power anywhere on the internet so I uploaded it myself.
It's the best love live song.

Hey everyone, i've recently got into a watching loop of pre-2000s anime movies. There's of course the well known Ghost in the Shell, or Akira for instance but there's plenty of them that are actually quite good. I know a lot of wiz here are into animes in general, so what would you suggest? I'm espescially looking for hidden pearls.

Weird to see Ai monogatari in a list like this. Lots of OVAs mixed up with movies here

>Street Fighter II movie
The plot is thin but the animation, character designs, music & voices are gorgeous. Also the fight choroegraphy was done by an actual martial artist and has no short-cuts (eg. spamming the same move multiple times, speed-lines) that plague cheaply done fight scenes.
Up there with Rurouni Kenshin OVA & Sword Of The Stranger for best anime fight scenes.


>pick related
watching that was kind of like watching a space odyssey. beautiful movie but dull and the message didnt click with me.


ok so i don't know if it counts, but the film Metropolis. it's from 2001 so it's one year too old but i personally really liked it.

>decided to check out the Netflix show
>season one is decent, very comfy
>didn't like how they changed lots of things from the book
>in the other seasons it becomes woke feminist garbage
>turns into a Liberal wank fantasy with gays, blacks and white privilege
>find out the creator, writers and even a few of the actors are unironically communist feminists
Just stick to the anime


Just started watching this on 9anime if anyone wants to watch along and discuss the series.


This show gets pretty emotional, and I did get teary eyed or felt moved by a quite a few moments in the series.

Use this thread to post how you think anime or manga could be better. Note your criticism of industry trends here and suggest what may improve the medium.

I wish that anime had more varied voice acting as an example.
I think this because JP films have people talking like humans with more character but anime nearly always has the same basic voices for character if not in who does the voices it is how they talk. The problems is not present when watching MOE SOL CGDCT anime because it works to the advantage but sadly when you are watching a serious anime the voice acting can affect the anime badly.

yurifag here and yuri is looking more promising than any other anime genre now besides SOL moe.
>-but those people shouldn't count since they have nothing to do with the Japanese anime market
even if western normalfags are not influencing content the result is the same. it is the community whatever it is


anime died in 2015, around that time a bunch of different things happened like sub groups dying off and anime production companies have been shutting down as well
the changes in audience have been subtly more normalfaggish as the years go, a YouTube video essay on anime would get millions of views, even niggers started parading around in Akatsuki cloaks and making jutsu with their hands

animation itself has taken a nosedive in quality, with even the most funded "quality" anime being nothing more than a few slideshows with talking mouths and a 1-2 minute "sakuga" every 5 or so episodes
digital art looks awful in anime and so does CG animation - everything looks fake and plastic now and morons with no taste eat that shit up
shading and color palettes are a thing of the past now everything is super shiny now to appease the zoomers - the skin shines, the eyes glow, a random object in the background will be extremely detailed yet the characters themselves will have a single stroke triangle for a nose

what was once a restaurant with all sorts of full course meals to choose from became a trashy dive bar you pop into once or twice a year to get a beer in

Very simple. Actually give the animation studio time & money to do anime right. Image as example.

isekais are an example. there are literally hundreds of mangas that refer to the genre itself and that work only with that (and it is a genre that appeared about 10 years ago)


>(and it is a genre that appeared about 10 years ago)
This is comically wrong but whatever.

I think as directors, show runners, and key animators get better at digital compositing and using technology they will be able to produce higher quality animation on tv/ova budgets. If they also do what the west does and simplify designs then full fluid animation at all times and over indulgent action scenes can be accomplished on a very low budget, allowing animators to be payed and treated better.
Better pay and treatment would attract more talent. Lower production cost would mean studios would be more willing to take risk on different ideas.
I think overall this would lead to more creative freedom overall.
While it might not necessarily lead to better overall quality, it will almost certainly help with the problem of overly similar shows chasing a trend coming out season after season for years with little to no creativity.

Is this show any good at all? I've listened to the OP about one hundred times by now, is the show worth checking out? Check out the OP if you haven't already, it's awesome.


what anime




Angelic Layer


This voice actress that sung this was the same that used to play Yukino Miyazawa in Gainax's Kare Kano. It reminds me of the opening to Baki the Grappler.


I fucking love that OP
