I've never been into anime and I don't know much about it. However, I decided to check out One Punch Man and I'm enjoying it a fair bit. I've never been able to stick to hobbies or find any passion or purpose in life. Is anime a worthwhile thing to get into? I'm beginning to see why so many people love it. The problem is, it just seems so dense. So much to learn, so many forums, so many niches. It's a little intimidating for a newcomer. Where do I begin? Should I learn Japanese? I've never been able to actually succeed at something like that, but maybe getting into anime would give me a reason too. Will anime improve my life and make me a better person? Will it make the bad things in life, like wageslaving and disease, more bearable?

I await your responses. Thank you, wizards.

Pretty much. Thats why i wish things would just stay dead.


try a romcom anime?


Watch the mass appeal tentpole anime?


out of vaguely relevant anime, 30% of it is straight trash, 40% is average, 20% is decent, 9% is great, and 1% is master level shit.
- this guy is rarely ever wrong about something being good, and occasionally wrong about something being bad. https://myanimelist.net/profile/ThatAnimeSnob
-one sign an anime is good is its rank relative to its popularity. high rank+low popularity=good, high popularity+low rank=bad. not always a good indicator, but about 50% of the time it is correct. https://myanimelist.net/topanime.php
-here are some recommendations for you:

-satoshi kon
-ghost in the shell
-FMA, watch either one it doesnt matter
-welcome to the nhk
-death note
-code geass
-tatami galaxy
-ouran highschool host club

I dunno? Maybe some old OVA like California Crisis or Bobby's in deep? Check out this angry short film by Hiroshi Harada. Shit subs but it still gets across.



for now its most likely its hiwous war cronicles weirdly despite being 1st bones anime that aired in 2000s (and translated MUCH later) its seems to be lesser known than zambot3 daitarn3 or even wings of rean (yeah im a tominofag)


also im trying to download triton of sea thats the last tomino cartoon i need to watch but been stuck at 44% for like 3months now THAT probs will be obscurest shit ive wasted my time on


>diff between lvl 5 and lvl 6 is too big
>EOE lvl 4
>LOGH lvl 1
not bad overall but some pretty bizarre choices


Good > Obscure

The writing is similar to that of other shounen so it's not great. I was also put off by the constant use of CG. But I still enjoyed it because of the historical setting, there's not that many anime about the Taisho era.
I'd say there isn't that much good Japanese media with a historical setting. At least when it comes to anime and video-games. It seems like Japanese people are way more into unrealistic sci-fi and fantasy settings.


>I'd say there isn't that much good Japanese media with a historical setting.
Dude really? I think Japs are the only people who like their own history enough to make media of it. I could list you tons of "historical" anime and video games. Think how many times you've seen oda nobunaga show up in something.


>I think Japs are the only people who like their own history enough to make media of it
The West makes a shitton of historical media, the West was far less isolated than Japan so there's more potential settings. Pirates, Crusades, Vikings, cowboys etc.
>I could list you tons of "historical" anime and video games
I've seen a few good historical anime but you can't deny that they are far less numerous than those of other genres. As for games, I'm not that much of a gamer anyway but the only Japanese game with a historical setting that I've both tried and enjoyed was Sekiro.


Nioh 1 and 2 are historical fiction, and there’s lots of musous about the warring states. I don’t think it’s fair to lump the west together, cause China also makes a lot of historical fiction.

Why are you even replying? What's the purpose of his posts in the first place? Just let him crawl back to whatever hole he came out of.


Just finished reading Utawarerumono. I remember being a lot more into Touka in the anime. I wonder if she stepped up her VA game in between them. Now I've got like 5 days to make it though part 2 before the anime for 3 starts…

That was a good read wasn't it? At least I remember being decent enough to binge read the whole thing in a few days. I'm reading a lot of self-published vns lately and writing my impressions of them in another ib. I don't care about wizchan anymore and this thread in particular, despite being the OP for most of them since 2016. It's nice to finally see at least one cultured anon still hanging around here though, even made me respond. I spent this afternoon reading METORY btw, I think I'm getting close to the end now. There's a sort of creative chaos in free Japanese VNs that I really enjoy. じゃ、愚痴愚痴止めて方が良いですよね。偽りの仮面お楽しみください。さよなら、ウィザードさん。


Yeah. I was actually expecting a little more to be honest, I quite liked the anime, and adaptations are usually so-so, I find. Guess they did a really good job with it, managed to fit most of it in there, too. I don't mean it as a complaint, I had a good time with it, don't think I ever felt disappointed, it just made me respect the work they put into the anime that much more.
The gameplay was actually fun, basic as it was. Had a bit of a giggle seeing them talk up Genjimaru that much while Oboro (made him my striker since he was so fast, literally every point in damage/tech) was just tearing through like half the field on his own without giving enough time for the rest of the gang to get into a proper formation. Pretty nice mix of units in the game, too.
>It's nice to finally see at least one cultured anon still hanging around here though, even made me respond.
I'm not much for these kinds of general hangout threads, but I do lurk.

And thanks. I'm really looking forward to it. Always liked the characters there a lot better. Actually found Hakuoro to be outright annoying at times in the anime what with all the angst and moping and the VA literally moaning all the time. Haku always felt like a pretty direct response and foil to Hakuoro to me, and I like that. He's just a good time.

Sounds interesting, doing a deep delve like that. It's always fun when you find a new genre or something and go to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes. I'm in the exact opposite phase here, just skimming the surface of the medium, seeing what I like. Think I broke my streak of never having read anything but works that already have translations like two months ago.
>There's a sort of creative chaos in free Japanese VNs that I really enjoy.
I can't really speak for VNs, obviously, but I've found the same with anime/manga and a few other things. The less people involved in making something, the more… pure, for lack of a better word, an experience it tends to be. Weirder, more unique, raw… I like that. My favourites are rarely what I would call the best made, or most polished. It's that weird, unique stuff. The things you don't find anywhere else. It really can't be overstated how blessed they are with their doujin culture.

Not that anon, but I relate to this heavily. One of my favourite VNs - see pic - is pretty much this, you can tell the writer just basically did whatever they wanted, unrestricted, and considered how long-winded it got at parts, probably minimally edited. Made for a brilliant and hugely immersive experience with very unique and deep worldbuilding.

I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who is at a bit more advanced stage of learning Japanese.

Pretty sassy post. But mainly this >>29566 at least as far as /a/ is concerned.


It's not wrong, sure. Maybe that's more the point of the mockery picture(s) here, that it's just empty peacocking. Why try to impress each other with taste in asian pedophile cartoons? Just like what you like and who needs to know?


immediate regret addendum: Well, it's okay to analyze things, praise and criticize them and hope for a discussion surrounding it, but template threads like these aren't incredibly promotive toward enjoyable conversation.

My big problem with discussing anime is that I never have enough in-depth knowledge, I know very little about the process of creating, which I'm sure there's tons and tons to talk about, I know very little about the cast and producers, just a few famous names here and there but never really taken enough interest to look into their portfolios and styles etc., I just tend to watch one show after the next and some 20 shows down the line I've already forgotten most of everything about it so I never really have any "fuel" for a discussion. Just these "oh yeah, I saw that at some point, uh…" moments.
These threads could indeed probably spawn a lot of interesting discussion but they require high knowledge level participants (not me)

Is the anime hime-chan no ribbon any good? It looks really cozy and cute. I really dig the design of the maim character.

its fun wiz watching it <3


I'll give this show a shot!


please do it seems super fun!!


It's hard to find good subs of this show.


Early '90s anime is max comfy


What are they like? Especially their political ones equivalent to the goldmine that was Trump memes.

That ain't even politics, that's just wholesome all around.


how the red head succubus type is calling?


This show came out ten years ago this year and it's one of the last shows I watched in its entirety.
The manga was written by the same mangaka of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, both are extremely Japanese with political references sometimes brought up too.


Japan has Qanon memes. They have other boomerish memes.

Type "114514" in the tweet search.

I've found myself watching, and this thread is as much of a confession as much as anything, kids shows. It started off due to the threads we've had about Cardcaptor Sakura and Doremy, but then I realized after watching them that I was feeling…oddly good and optimistic about the world in general. It's weird, because on the one hand I hate watching this stuff because, well, it's so fucking stupid and vapid, but on the other hand I love watching it because it's so goddam relaxing and healing to the soul. I find myself questioning whether this entertainment is purposefully made this way, to emotionally manipulate individuals past a certain age into a state of depression.

Uhm, thanks for reading my blogpost? Otherwise, I guess share some younger-demographic anime you might be watching?

I've been reading the latest (2018) Sonic comics, too. They've been…surprisingly good. Especially the metal virus arc, goddam.


Why is it that kids media is typically full of optimism, moralization, hope, and good endings; but "adult" media is typically full of depressing, demoralizing, nihilistic, and bad endings?


Skip to the last five or ten minutes of embed related to see what I mean.

Fuck "adult" media. It's poison.


Sam and Max is pretty fun.


Embedrel is why I watch kids shows now.

spoil 1045 one piece: did shueisha hot hacked? looks like the raws come from straight out of a device


I kind of regret burning out on this manga and anime I would like to watch/read it again but feel like I can't just pick up around where I left off (since I'll miss context and have forgotten things) but also don't want to watch/read what I have already read since I won't have the same feeling I once had when I started the series and it may feel like a chore


First of all watch the english subs (type “One Piece subs” in whatever anime website) and secondly watch it from beginning to end (look up a guide on one piece filler episodes and skip all of it) It may seem like a massive amount of content but if you love it you’ll wish there was more. When you start watching remember this: If you aren’t hooked by the end of Arlong Park, drop it.


Hey there, one peace is masterpiece!
