I've been thinking about tackling this monster, over 900 episodes sounds daunting but I figured if I can do a 200 episodes show in about a month it should take less than 6 to catch up with this.
Is it worth it? Or will I waste all that time just to get disappointed by newer seasons?

I binged the manga recently and it absolutely isn't worth it, it's one of those sunk cost fallacy series where the fans have invested too much time to admit it's just kinda shit and got worse overtime

you could use the time watching One Piece to instead watch 50 actually good series with endings, which is what I suggest doing


Thanks wizzie I was about to start reading it again.

I did not see the appeal it just felt weird to me.


I don’t really see anyone calling the series good anymore after the timeskip so I’m not sure which fans you’re talking about. I still follow it week to week but I would never recommend it to anyone at this point.


>after the timeskip
I'd say the last good arc was water7/ennies lobby where the serie peaks. After that it starts going down, has a small improvement in impel down and then it definitely craps itself forever. I don't think marineford was interesting at all (op fans usually like this arc a lot), it's exactly where the series went to shit trying to cram an insane amount of characters that end up not doing anything and you don't hear of them ever again. This pattern keeps repeating after this point.
The art also changed a lot from the start, it's very hard to tell what's happening in each manga panel, and half of them are character reaction faces or stupid unnecesary dialog.

So, from someone that has been following one piece >15 years, if someone asked me "Should I check one piece?" my answer would be no. I only read the weekly chapter to see the end, if I stopped I'd drop it and not come back to it.


people tend to say One Piece went to shit whenever they had to start reading weekly

Talk about Touhou here. I think the OP or something. It's been three months. We've all talked about our favorite characters, so what's your favorite part of the fandom? Do you like the setting the most, the characters the most, the lore the most, the music the most, or, like me, do you just idealize the series like I do?

What are you doing right now to enjoy the series?

Kinda feel like a poser since the only thing I have ever really gotten into when it comes to Touhou is the music.
Both directly from the games and the wider music community that takes inspiration from Touhou.


You'll fit right in. I'd say more than 90% of the community never 1cc any game. Not that I have. Bullet hell is extremely niche compared to the size of the 2hu fandom.

This thread makes me feel old


I've played all the games at least once and usually get as far as the 5th or 6th boss but I can seemingly never 1cc. One day…

CCS is one of he best animes I have ever seen! I remember watching the shitty dubbed version on Teletoon but the Japanese version is a million times better! Sakura S so cute and the show is so fucking comfy!

Can you blame them? Japanese animators in the 80s and 90s were bored out of their minds animating the same cookie cutter magical succubus shows, that they had to draw upskirts just to keep themselves entertained. Kind of like how old disney films have subtle dick jokes in them.


You're actually right, good post.


You sound like a succubus who cares.

Thinking of starting this anime but I have tried other long running older weeb shows you jpfags have posted about loving and never got the appeal.

I already watched an episode of this anime it seemed like some episodic show like most 90s anime.


no, artists are just horny in general. robert crumb is no different from picasso is no different from quzilax is no different from the ancient greeks

I wanted BNA to be much better than it was. It felt like it was just killing time and wasn’t trying to be as good as klk or ttlg. At least nazuna was mega cute.


>It felt like it was just killing time
Strange since to me it felt the pace was a bit too fast and they really could have used more episodes to give more room to breathe.


I agree, but in a way that's kinda what I mean. It felt like it was just a holding pattern show that they made with a template. I don't have much of a problem with that cause animation studios gotta pay the bills, but it just seemed low effort.


Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina

Watched it because I was told it was similar to Kino's Journey.
It isn't really all that similar to Kino's Journey.
It just felt super shallow and flat to me.
It isn't a show that made me think. It is a show that just kind of held my attention and helped pass the time. Not actually bad but not actually impactful in any meaningful way.
I doubt I will remember it a year or two from now.


MonsterGirl Doctor
The animation is total shit even if the character design is somewhat nice. Story is meh.
FAR tamer then I expected. It is actually quite mild for something with a Ecchi tag and has monstergirls in it. It is basically a cotton-candy show as far as I am concerned. Light,fluffy, sweet, and no substance whatsoever.
But seriously the animation is so god damn bad at times and they clearly don't know how to composite 3d and 2d animation at all. That isn't even a budget thing, that is a sucking at your job thing.

I mean I didn't hate the show or anything, but just read the manga if it has one.
2 out of 5.
Would only recommend if you feel you must watch everything that involves monstergirls.

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

Just watched an episode I am unsure if I can get into it honestly and it is not because of the art style although the could be cuter.

Why is it not for me do you think? I dislike episodic stuff I felt that sailor moon could have been better structured diffferently I mainly enjoy watching stuff like mitsuboshi colors and non non biyori.


Doremi's good because the characters are actually unique and not just blobs of cuteness. In fact it's completely opposite from moe anime, as its main appeal draws from imperfections and even criticizes "kawaii culture" and idorus in Onpu centered episodes. I think someone mentions this in the thread already, but Doremi characters weren't all pretty rich kids that lived perfect lives. In fact most of them are poor and kind of deformed. Every character in the show have big foreheads and noodle arms.
>Why is it not for me do you think? I dislike episodic stuff I felt that sailor moon could have been better structured diffferently I mainly enjoy watching stuff like mitsuboshi colors and non non biyori.
The show focuses a lot on Doremi's classmates, especially in the first season. So if you wanted the focus to be on pretty succubi, then it's simply not for you.


>I just want something like non non biyori
You might enjoy Flying Witch and Sketchbook Full Colors then


Thanks i really liked flying witch I seen it a while ago it is strange to me that people hate on moe but there is some really good SOL moe :(


There will be a blu-ray release of the entire series and new movie soon.

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.

Thread for discussing what anime we have read and liked enough to suggest to another wizard I hope the thread goes ok I know we have one but it seems quite old and a bit of a mess remove if this was a mistake.

I need new manga to read and maybe you do as well so post some manga and explain why you liked it so much.

>We did it

A great coming of age manga similar to pun pun in ways it has a wizard character in it as well.
A cynical story about a young man that just sees society for what it is and it is quite bleak
>a bullet or a lollypop
A depressing manga that has lovely moe character design it is only short so a must read
>euthanasia society
A one shot that is about killing yourself I suggest it
A longer anti hero martial arts manga that is worth the read but do not expect an amazing ending
>holy land
A fighting manga about a wizardly MC and it actually is very good
>koku no hito
Disregard succubus acquire mountains
>vinland saga
I suggest this because it was a great read although I dropped it near the end of what is out but that is after 170+ chapters of solid story

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?
48 posts and 9 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I am very much a male in a male body since birth but I relate to Misaki and feel I have similar problems as her and really misaki is literally me.

Misaki only desires to help someone else and live through them I cannot tell you how much I am also like that.

The hate Misaki gets is unfair she has a lot of problems even more than satou who is only socially anxious and lazy.

Reminder that the MC was a hikikomori in the japanese way and not as would be common in the west.

>mental health issues

He was a hikikomori more due to his feeling of failing and withdrew there were no scenes explicitly showing he had an inability to go outside at all.

Miaski self harms and has tried to kill herself while living with abusive family and she wanted a friend she was not a typical succubus.

Reminder that the MC was very crab like and thought lewdly of the MC even falling in love with another hikikomori man in the vidya arc.
Also what the fuck was the vidya MMO arc it was shit I feel strongly that the anime adaption should have had at least 12 episodes per arc or at least not with the additional arc.

The only improvement the anime did as an adaption is clean up the mess of the manga storyline and in some ways the LN itself.

In the LN a lot of different stuff happens including some very confusing scenes it felt like it could have been more fleshed out also reminder that the adaptions are very much toned down because the MC becomes a lolicon in the LN.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


The anime was actually toned down hard compared to the novel, in the novel Satou uses actual drugs and it seems way more desperate at times when in the anime it was mostly played by laughs, and Yamazaki while being 2D obsessed too is a full blown pedophile actually giving Child Porn (not anime loli but real 3D CP) to Satou and satou downloading tons of CP from the internet, this was back in 2003 or so, today the novel wouldn't be published, actually the editorial went bankrupt.

There are more differences, the novel is very different at times, it's sometimes weird because of that, Hitomi was an afterthought in the novel with a single paragraph mentioning her, I don't even remember if the author named her, and the online game and multilevel sales shit doesn't exist in the novel.

The anime is quite entertaining, I liked the online game arc and Yamazaki is more likeable in the anime too, he's stupid a hypocrite traitor bastard that abandons 2D for 3DPD though.

I wonder how satou would be in 2021, probably he would be a normalfag like everyone else, too bad that no one will ever make a sequel.


I'm sorry for the many mistakes I made in this post, I'm tired and phoneposting rn.


The novel is not really that good though, it gets confusing and boring at times, only the ocassional otaku references save it when it gets bad, the anime on the other hand is very entertaining.

The ending makes even less sense in the novel.


100 the amnag and anime toned it down a lot and it really does get confusing some times like when Satou takes a bunch of DMT and we have a chapter or two of him tripping balls but it was ok.
Satou even in the book never seemed to be very near the edge of suicide it could have been much more bleak for my liking.

I felt like the anime,novel,manga had some serious flaws and we often overlook them or at least appear to because it is one of the only media about being a hikikomori most of us have consumed.

The anime was a good watch the gaming arc was fun the MLM arc was a bit of a mess and plain stupid if you aks me.
The anime is so much more of a mess I did not even finish it to be honest I read a great deal of it though.

I wish we had a more well polished bleak hikikomori book I would like Inino Asino to make a manga about this topic he can actually do well with something like this but seems he is busy doing his cutesy style and from what I read he may have moved on from bleak depressing manga.

I used to be really into Taku Furukawa shorts when I first started getting into independent japanese animation, also Ryu Katou was one of my favorites as well

ah yes, that's the stuff


Reincarnation Garden「りんね園」3:46 04-03-2016

Ryu Katou's later stuff for NHK reminds me of a guy like Cezanne, it's really bright and cheerful


Salmon-chan「シャケちゃん」5:55 10-03-2012

Comedy where Salmon-chan attempts to be eaten

A couple of the animators, Rina Iwamoto and Kyohei Konishi, later went to work on anime like Nisekoi and succubi und Panzer.
