Anime is so overwhelming as a newcomer. Other people seem to know all these terms and shows and characters. How do I get into it? I’ve accepted anime as my religion and I want to dive right in.

god it hard when the series has somany fucking episodes and a new one drops every week or so, I had to drop one piece because it was so overwhelming for me


How do I get over this weird OCD I have where I have to skim through watched episodes of series I’m watching? I worry if I don’t remember every detail of every episode.


Just start with classics so you don't waste time on modern shit that's just watered down version of everything you've seen in the past.


Watered down or diluted, depends on how you look at it. There actually is good anime still being made.


Ahh! I meant concentrated!

Hello, been lurking here for a while but this is actually my first post. I'm looking for a famous female character which I'm pretty sure was created by a non-Japanese guy; he's probably Indonesian or Malaysian. The succubus in the picture kinda reminds me of her (again not sure, though).
The succubus I'm talking about was so famous a Japanese tourism agency even put her on a leaflet or some other info material.
Thanks a lot

This is so close, it's like I was asking for Coca-Cola and you talked about Pepsi


If anyone is interested, I found it. She's Mirai Suenaga.
After remembering about the Nendoroid, I started checking all of them (https://goodsmile.info/en).
There she is: https://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/3645/Nendoroid+Mirai+Suenaga.html
She was created by Danny Choo with graphical assistance by Azami Yuko.
Here is Danny Choo's wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Choo

Thanks to all for their suggestions!


Ahh. I'd never even heard of her before.

Uploaded is a retard so we’re stuck at 35% for now.
Thoughts on the movie?




I really liked it, the pacing could have been better and the Lancer vs Assassin fight was kind of drawn out but overall I'm happy with it as seeing that route animated has been something I longed for a long time.

What do your backlogs look like wizards? Do you plan on adding or dropping anything? Mine isn't the biggest since I've only recently gotten into anime, I've pretty much only seen the basics like CCS, Evangelion and the Dragon Ball series.

What a strange show. I cant blame you for dropping it, however I think the best parts of the show come up later. It starts getting increasingly bizarre and more and more symbolism comes up again and again. If I were smart I probably would have gotten a lot from it all, but I think a lot kind of went over my head. At the very least I greatly enjoyed the aesthetics and ambiance.

I suppose you could watch the movie if you want a really condensed and fast paced version of it. Its inferior to the show and the plot is way more crazy but the visuals are very interesting.


I watched half of the first episode and thought it was really fucking cringeworthy.


Oh shoot, THAT orange haired succubus. Ok, I thought you were talking about a different one maybe 5 episodes later or something. I don't really have the words to describe the show well to you, so I wont try, but I don't think you will have a good idea of what its about if you just watch the first episode. I would say watch the entire first episode because it kind of changes a lot but its fine if you don't, the show isn't for everyone.


I've heard it gets crazy later and really that's the only reason it's still on my backlog. To be honest I'm not really a fan of stories focused entirely on royalty or rich kids so it wouldn't really appeal to me otherwise.

The guy you're replying to is different than me, when I was talking about an orange haired succubus I was talking about a character from Legend of the Galactic Heroes, a different show.

I didn't drop it on the first episode, I watched like 10 or so. I dropped after the MC lost the duel to the red haired guy


Oh, I understand now. I got confused there for a bit.

The first 1/3rd of the show is pretty tame(maybe to show a contrast to later scenes), the weird stuff starts happening in the 2nd part, and some pretty crazy plot points happen in the 3rd. The whole time the show becomes more and more full of weird symbolism, and you become increasingly aware of how bizarre everyone acts all the time. Each character is living a lie, more or less, and you find that they were all acting very strangely on reflection.

And I'm not saying the show was really great or anything, I cant even say I enjoyed it a lot honestly. But its pretty interesting.

Also, if you don't ever plan on finishing the anime you might want to watch the movie, but don't watch the movie if you ever think you might watch the anime at some point, because it spoils some pretty important plot points.

Hey. What character I like from anime?
I like Scar from FMA and FMA B. Why? Because he was mysterious and his country was treated poorly when there was a war.
But after war was over he came after alchemists, because he wanted revenge so much.

That impressed me.

Are there any character who wanted revenge in anime? Give me examples of them.

I really like van. he's a fun character in his own way.


berserk and 91 days are the best anime about revenge
i'd add ninja scroll and dororo


Gun X Sword counts I guess.
It was aright in it's own right, but it felt more then a little like a rip off of trigun.

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).

I don't remember the plot exactly, but seems like a 1% moral coping mechanism.
I mean he basically died of genetic anime aids, so much for his individualism.


He was sending hundreds of thousands of people to death waging his wars. It's obvious he has some superiority complex going.


Don't watch the gay new one. Original is lightyears better.


but 110 episodes…..


I wish there were more episodes but a good story must end somewhere.

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.

Anime should have stopped at season 1. OPM S2 and the manga went a little too standard fighting-shounen after the spectacularly animated Boros fight.


I'm going to pull a 'read the webcomic'. The manga, made from the webcomic, expands the original with tons more shonen fighty stuff, and the anime is based on the manga.


Nobody's mentioned it, but you will pick up a lot of Japanese phrases from watching subbed anime. Anyone who's seen more than 50 anime knows what doushite or betsuni or sasuga or yokata means because they're phrases used all the time and often in isolation.
Obviously you'll be watching with subtitles, but some parts of the language won't necessarily be translated, so you should be aware of them. The only parts of Japanese I'd say are worth knowing before watching anime are honorifics and how names work, but these are so basic that if you're using a site like wizchan you must already have some vague idea. I'll start with names.
First of all, the name order is the opposite of English: family name, then given name. The man who Westerners call Hideaki Anno would be Anno Hideaki to a Japanese person. Yukio Mishima is Mishima Yukio.
You call somebody by their family name to be polite, but keep in mind the Japanese are extremely autistic about politeness. I would address my classmate (but not friend) by their family name plus an honorific, but I'd address my best friend by their given name. Romance anime, particularly with shy/awkward protags, will make a big deal out of them asking each other if they can address each other by their given names, and they'll blush like mad as he addresses her as Akane-chan rather than Mizuno-san.
Before I move on to honorifics I should mention that sometimes succubi will have -n put at the end of their name for cutesy reasons, like Megumi becoming Megumi or Minori becoming Minorin.
Second of all, you probably noticed the -chan and -san suffixes. These are honorifics, which denote the relationship between the person speaking and the person being referred to and can be used to show respect - think if Mr, Mrs, adding '-y' to the end of something to make it cutesy, etc had a bigger role. While they aren't the only ones, I'd say there are three essential ones that you'll pick up quickly anyway and four more that will actually be used in anime.
The main three are san, chan and kun. San is to show respect, whether it's used to refer to someone above me in a hierarchy whom it would be rude to disrespect or to someone equal to me that I just want to respect (like a classmate if I'm not very assertive). When Iwata died a lot of people said to say 'RIP Iwata-san' rather than Mr Iwata.
Chan is to show that you find something endearing or cute, and is basically like adding -y in English, -chen in German or -ka inPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
