Bros I need some help. I downloaded this one anime (with english subs) and I can't figure out how to use the english subs. There is a file named: subs.rar in the the file directory but I have tried to paste them out of it (they're called [insert episode name here].ass) and when I use my video player, it has an option (in the subtitle settings) to find a subtitle file so I can play the video with subs. Yet, when I select the file directory, it just says: no subtitle files found. What do I do? This anime pretty high quality and it's very hard to find a torrent(s) of it (with all the seasons) that are still seeded on utorrent. I honestly don't know what to do and I'm stuck

>Nobody could be that clueless.
The fear of coming across as a retard probably made me an even bigger retard by not asking for help ever. We are out there.


So it fixed the problem?


No it did not and that isn't me.


Welp, I just deleted the anime for a different torrent (this time with english subs in the video files themselves). But, the audio isn't lossless anymore. Ah well. It's still in 1080p


I love Soul Eater Not!

The Pumpkin song was the highlight of my halloween 2018

Let's fix that. I am currently watching part 4 and plan to watch part 5 afterwards and read the manga's. It is not as good as part 3 so far that I've watched but I've been told it gets better later on.

Any anime that anyone thinks is just better off/works better as a manga?

Haven't read Nichijou but watched the first episode, I could already tell that the jokes might have had a better effect reading them, not watching.
Despite AzuDai's charm, I feel the same with some of its jokes, too.
Lucky Star is also up there.

Is this the slice-of-life curse?

Nichijou is better as a manga because much if not most of the jokes rely on timing. How long there is between action and reaction, buildup and punchline, etc. Because of this the reader gets to decide for themselves the pace of the atmosphere and can interpret it as per what they find funny. Naturally as a televised animation the timing will be cut short to fit more sponsors in. Despite this I enjoy the direction of Nichijou's anime adaption better. Nothing from the manga was excluded as common anime adaptions go, and instead the opposite happened as they added Helvetica Standard shorts and re-ordered Nano's chapters to give her maximum screentime. They covered as many chapters as they possibly could have with the episode count they were given and still ended on a high note. The manga does go on a little further though and wraps things up nice so I'd recommend reading it once you finish the anime.

I can't watch Kaiji cause I read the manga and the anime is so slow. Pic is from Strongest Man Kurosawa.


I watched the pilot and the first episode of Nichijou, the succubi are cute, but holy shit is it corny.

Definitely could never see myself watching this again.

terano is a character in the series,im glad he will appear again


I'm going to try learning japanese again.


For anyone looking for a free alternative to Tae Kim/Genki in a video format, I suggest watching Cure Dolly's Japanese from Scratch playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLg9uYxuZf8x_A-vcqqyOFZu06WlhnypWj

It emphasizes the usage and importance of particles (especially the concept of が), how verbs work and how to "conjugate" them (Japanese has an extensive system of attaching auxiliary verbs to verb stems), and she uses Alice in Wonderland to illustrate how to parse Japanese sentences. See if her method works for you.


Cure dolly is pretty good, helped me a lot more than Tae Kim with grammar

Hey wizzies. I just found out Jae Raws actually release the close captions for many of the anime they share on nyaa. So I'm cleaning and syncing them for fun. This is a really good way to improve your Japanese. If you're somewhere on intermediate level and you can watch anime but need Japanese captions to understand some of the dialogue this is perfect for you. I'll be releasing the captions for Doraemon and Crayon Shin-chan, starting today.
Links to the raws:
I'm keeping the furigana as well as those can be quite helpful. I hope you enjoy it.

Remember they don't have seeds for a long time so try to get them as soon as it's released. I'll clean and sync the captions on the same day of release. Have fun!

This years anime convention connichi (germany) will be held online because of this virus pandemic. it appears that everyone will be free to watch the stream for free. I am not sure if they will block IP adresses from outside germany from watching it.
I felt obligated to inform everyone of this event.

>link: https://online.connichi.de/online/

I don't know if they will have english subtitles though

>program: https://plan.connichi.de

here is the program plan. there are some high profile guests from the anime industry and apparently they will show interviews, concerts and workshops / cosplay competitions.

I have no idea how this will be but I have nothing to do on friday and I might try this one out.
I hope it will be fun

watched it for a bit, was a bit disappointed that there was no amv-contest, also wasn't really interested in the presentations it was kind of strange


I used to mess with people all the time with this fake quote all the time a few years ago. God it was funny how some people reacted back then. Now it's like the old chan culture which we are currently in, has seen it all

Yes, they should've used used actual Miyazaki quotes


I think you're looking at the wrong movies and in the long way.
Walt himself in his films isn't as pronounced Miyazaki is in his and he definitely felt like a business man first and an artist second, but there are some parallels, like Walt's love for trains and Miyazaki's love for planes. It just manifested more into theme parks and some live-action movies then it did with animated films, marked by an extreme sense of sentimental nostalgia, wanting to go back to his childhood and dissatisfaction with his later years. And maybe his focus on fairy tales is a sign that this was always present within him.
Sage for probably being extremely off topic

He still mentioned his dissatisfaction about self-absorbed otaku, but he rambled about a lot of things.
I actually searched for the drunk Miyazaki paper but couldn't find it, nice!

Honestly it's been a while since I dug into Disney works besides the old movies and comics, which I mainly enjoyed in my childhood, so my comparison was a bit one-sided.

Makes sense that Walt Disney also was invested in the medium or he wouldn't have started the business, the company just got very big which usually means less personal involvment, but I don't even know how long he was calling the shots in their creations, so it's interesting to learn about his possible motivations in the way you described. We could probably go much deeper into his influences via old interviews etc., but honestly I am too lazy for that haha

What did you guys take away from this show? Did it help the way you feel about your situation, or did it cause more despair?

I watched it when I was 19 originally and now I'm fucking 30 and way older than Satou and a NEET. Like another poster said, in real life, you can't just go and get a job because stuff like job gaps and sociability factor in. The original manga author basically just went back to vegging out for a long time because he could live on the royalties. Now that's what I envy.


File: 1599754611106.jpg (213.83 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, mrunknown.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I wish there was an episode where Sato gets addicted to online message boards but by the end of it he realizes there's no escape from normalfags/douchebags on the internet or something like that. There's quite a few anime that mentions 5ch, futaba and even 4chan (like Digimon Adventure and Witch Academia). Even NHK shows a 2ch thread during the scene where Sato's crying on the floor and seeing hallucinations of the main characters, and during the suicide arc Hitomi uses a 2ch clone to discuss the offline meeting. Paranoia Agent also mentioned a made up site similar to 2ch in their suicide episode; must've been a real problem in Japan in the 00s.

Here's the afterword he wrote 5 years after the release of the book, where he said he was going to try hard to write better books.

Several years have passed since I wrote, “I still will do my best after this.” I have not done my best. Proof of that is in the fact that I haven’t written a single new story. I’ve been reduced to a NEET, living as a parasite on the royalties from this book.

This may be the result of trauma or something like that. Because of it, I developed a strange disease in my brain. Because of this disease, which causes everything to remind me of the trauma, it makes my brain cry out. It makes my brain cry out each time I try to write a story. My brain always is crying out—and because of that, I have become unable to write stories at all. Because of the terrible fear that I faced when I wrote this book, I no longer want to write stories and have become completely unable to write any. Oh, what a terrible tragedy! For a young and talented (at least, he thinks so) writer to have become incapacitated because he wrote this book!

You must read this now. A rare, dark mystique is hidden in this book, which holds the cursed origins I have explained above. It seems that a comedy manga writer long ago went crazy and often would disappear, but there was likely a ghastly force contained within the work that destroyed him, mentally. Because there must be some similar force within this book, it is a book that I confidently can recommend to anyone. It can even help with home and office communication. This book is optimal as a graft onto discussions like, “Hey, do you know the N.H.K.?” and then, someone will say, “The Nihon Hikikomori Kyokai, right? It’s really funny. But it made me cry a little, too.”

It’s embarrassing to mention something that’s selling so well, but no one knows minor works. One could say that a book around this level is indeed the masterpiece that truly could help everyone’s communication. There are jokes about all sorts of current events included, and it’s extremely useful for helping young people think about the present times. It could even be said that if you read this book, you’ll be able to understand the feelings of young people who live in our society today. Older people will be surprised, thinking, “Oh, really? Young people nowadays are like this?!” And those of the same age as the characters

>I wish there was an episode where Sato gets addicted to online message boards but by the end of it he realizes there's no escape from normalfags/douchebags on the internet or something like that.
I would rather see him realize that even some of his own fellow losers online are vindictive assholes that just make his life worse and bad company, but trying to post online only to find out you're in a farm for normies to gawk at is also realistic.
>There's quite a few anime that mentions 5ch, futaba
Futaba, I have never seen it mention in anime, I remember talking to a Japanese person online and he said it's pretty obscure and for a niche crowd, and I've lurked it before and know it's pretty slow, while 2ch was something practically everyone and their mother used. But the same is said for Niconico, otakucentric and not the go-to for your Japanese normie, but still huge and influential.
I wish I saved the screencap, there was a scene in Joshiraku where the characters were afraid of making too many ass jokes and it would show fake-2ch screencaps of people calling them "that ass anime", and there was a show from the 00's where the mona SJIS art cats showed up in one episode.
>Paranoia Agent also mentioned a made up site similar to 2ch in their suicide episode; must've been a real problem in Japan in the 00s.
>4chan (like Digimon Adventure and Witch Academia).
Shit, really? LWA might make since since I remember /a/ having a hand with its crowdfunding after the first short back in 2012-2013. Digimon is a show I loved as a child and don't know how to feel about 4chan having a mark on it 20 years later.
I remember in 2013, when Watamote was being collected into tankobon, they advertised it as being "popular on the overseas version of 2ch", aka 4chan.

Is there a more relatable /wiz/ character than Yonro? I haven't watched Shin-chan in years since it's a pain in the ass to watch outside of Japan and I'm pretty sure it shares the same fate as spongebob or south park, but is yonro still in modern episodes?

Cringy. The word you're looking for is "cringy". Cringe is a verb, whereas cringy is an adjective. Never make this mistake again.


yea you just have no taste


Fuck I'm Yonro irl. I hope he's still a virgin because then he'd be me to a tee, but I'm slighlty older.


>I hope he's still a virgin because then he'd be me to a tee, but I'm slighlty older
There was an episode where he tried to lose his virginity by hiring a hooker, but Shin stole the money by mistake and it ended up in the hands of every kid in the neighborhood


>This show always seemed very autistic and cringe to me
That's what this site is for.
And I hear the English dub that aired in America was very different than original Japanese, but I don't know.

It makes me sad that anime from the early 2000s have already faded into obscurity, and discussion has all but died off on imageboards and forums. I see maybe one short-lived thread per year about tsukihime on all the imageboards I lurk. Do younger fans of anime just not like the style of 2000s stories?

Was it Grumpy Jii san? If so, then I'm sorry to say that he's probably passed away by now.


Yup that's it. Thanks bro


I really liked Alita and the Dirty Pair movie, I will check out the rest, thank you!


You are welcome. Here's torrents for the complete series for all of them


Totally lackluster

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

I just use Taiga to log what I watch. My memory is horrendous.


definitely, but it aids in enjoying shounen time after time having rewatched some 10 times. I used to be concerned about not carrying it with me until I read higurashi. It was like a 100 hour long read but I pretty much remembered every single thing even after a year away. You should try it, if you want to have a stellar piece of dojin work to have in you forever, but only if you haven't seen the adaptations.


If you're talking about the third: the succubus with the blue eye that I think you're talking about, your memory is really spotty. If you want the anime you can find it on nyaa.si. Exiled destiny has a torrent with seeds


That's just a word filter. Replace it with g*irl incase anyone gets confused


Yup that's it. Thanks a lot you are a lifesaver. I honestly couldn't remember anything except the setting. I watched this anime like over a decade ago on a streaming site and over time completely forgot about it

DBZ feels like a completely different show than DB, which as you said was a more consistent Dr. Slump. No wonder it inspired many mangaka that came after, like the first chapters of one piece even looked very DBish.

While I found DBZ cool, Goku finally became an adult and the action got more, it became too serious and obvious in time, the story could have been told in about half the episodes (which Kai kind of did) while almost every episode of DB was filled with fun adventures.

A few years ago I rewatched both and I still prefer DB, even after all that time it's still an amazing story


I think it's just that people are reminded of all the problems and issues with DBZ in particular, that and it's a huge worldwide and well known series and the face of shounen for years, that people view it as normie and not something a "real hardcore" anime viewer would associate with.
I personally regret missing out on it the first time. It's a series essential to the history of the medium but so long, and both the manga and the anime have their pros and cons separate to each other.


I don't have guilty pleasures.
As far as I'm concerned, if I like something, it's good.


Never watched the anime but the vn was great and well written.


Gleipnir has kinda crap writing in the first episode but makes up for it with good characters, good soundtrack, and good action. Claire is also the perfect waifu
