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?

He has followed up on his vague hints, on occasion.
Most of the questionable hints are still a little more explicit than Fujiwara no Mokou having a spellcard named "Honeset Man's Death," which could mean any number of things on its own. The perception of that card's meaning could have just been left as an exercise for the reader, but ZUN made it all quite explicit when Mokou recounted her own past in "Cage in Lunatic Runagate."

What was the most disappointing anime you have ever watched? For me personally, it was Sailor Moon Crystal. I'm a big Sailor Moon fan and I was pumped for the new series to come out, even though it kept getting delayed I didn't care, I just wanted to feel the magic I felt watching the series for the first time again. But when the show aired in the summer of 2014 i was met with a show with extremely sloppy animation, poor writing and really just an underwhelming vibe to it. It was just such a gut punch to see my favorite show get treated with such a mishandled and mediocre retelling.

Burn up Scramble really highlighted to me the exponential drop in quality that the new era has brought to animation. You had a series that had that a very good look to it and was fun to watch, only to get everything thrown away and have the series look like some shitty harem show that exists to sell manga.

Okay, I just finished the the series.
and I have to ask - is this a joke? Like a big decades long meme? I think this was the worst anime I've ever seen. A pseudo-philosophical LARP. Like does it actually have a point? A meaning? Beause I think I just witnessed someone's acid trip.

Unironically is the worldwide fame a LARP? Or is it like with the emperor's new clothes, where nobody mentions that he's actually naked?

What the acual fuck? Either I'm a brainlet retard or I'm the only sane person on earth - but what the fuck did I just watch?

It reminds me of those old french psychological art films… What a fucking waste of time…

Generally speaking this is true but is not always the case. Initial d, Eva, and Pokemon (the first few seasons) being exceptions to the rule. Of course, Angels of death, Goblin Slayer, Shiki, and Gleipner being the best anime around since 2010 despite not being that popular.

She's the only likeable character really. Pino is. She's infected yet acts perfectly fine too. Or, innocuous anyway. Hilarious. She's the soul innocuous character that i can recall. Everyone else wants to be human too much rather than just live. It's the angst.

I liked how later on in Sun & Moon, she became the favorite succubus for the writers, so they gave her way more dialogue and screen time. Compared to the first half of the series, where she and her family had very little to do.

Suiren sort of became the main succubus once all the major arcs that involved Lillie were finished. I do love Lillie too though, she's easily the most emotionally invested character, and she's absolutely adorable.

I think she's Indian, as in India Indian. I assume most of the brown people in Pokemon, barring the obvious Hawaiian and Okinawa settings, are meant to be Indian, at least in X/Y.
I've seen some Japanese artists assume the same for the water type gym leader in Sword/Shield.

Nowadays it would be Jojo or MHA. I'm not really sure what else, I want to say Attack on Titan but it looks like that really plummeted under people's interests a long time ago.
Also there's one generation missing, the Naruto and Bleach days of the 00's, but I guess most of those people grew up on Pokemon too.

why does anime have to be so fucking long? i cannot be fucked to watch an anime more than 24 episodes. I (unintentionally) dropped Duel Monsters, Slayers, Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and some other shit because I cannot be fucked to watch that many episodes.

I don't even LIKE anime that much, even when though I have a MAL from 2012 which is older than 90% of the people on the internet who claim to like anime.

I agree. Streaming tv shows are like this now. I miss the times when you could drop in on any show and not have to be familiar with all the backstory, just as long as you tune in before the episode starts. Then the series would only reserve major backstory episodes for two parters. But then they starting making these part of the season finale and premiere, so if you missed these two episodes you wouldn't have any fucking idea what is going on in the current season. Farscape was like this. The only anime I can remember that was episodic was Black Jack, you could jump into any episode and simply know it was about some medical oddity Black Jack was encountering.

I despise this series.

Don't give me the "IT MAKES A TURNAROUND IN CHAPTER 132498579182, AND IT'LL ALL BE WORTH IT." Even with the turnaround, all it becomes is the epitome of "Jus b urself :^)" logic. Without the turnaround it's just embarrassment, and I have enough of that thinking about myself.

This is a series made by normies to laugh at wizards.

The anime is pretty great,a good representation of what many wizards go through,tomoko is just an insert for pretty much any Japanese otaku/wizard (with all her perverted delusions) she's just a succubus because that attracts viewers. Also the anime had a great ending,not Deus ex machina,no "someone will save you" shit like in NHK,It was just pure happy acceptance,a "fuck them" attitude towards life,the OVA was good too.

The Manga was good at first but then she became a full fledged normie,the focus changed from "very awkward succubus with social anxiety and delusions" to 'very awkward lesbian undertones" and that shit's not funny at all.

Now I'm reading another Manga called "Neeko wa tsurai yo" about a 23 year old NEET (and needless to say she's literally me,age and all) and I find it very relatable,no miraculous "change",no "savior" just pure suffering,just like my life.

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.

95% of the time I watch anime completely drunk. I have only rewatched one anime in my life. Renkin san-kyuu magical pokaan forty two times now. I have no interest watching most anime more than once and I ALWAYS wait until the anime has come out on bluray subbed in 1080p unless its an old anime so I am always watching it at its best quality uncensored with any animation errors corrected.

I don't remember most anime plots because i can't follow them in the first place.I have low IQ and attention span so I always get confused and can't make sense of the plot, let alone comprehend the deeper meanings behind the story.I almost always have to resort to wikis or YouTube videos for explanations.I have to admit it's quite frustrating.Thats why I tend to prefer lighter anime which have less intricate plots

Yea, I haven't checked if there's a 2nd season ever coming up but depending on execution it can turn out pretty great or incredibly bland, I really hope the idol stuff doesn't take over the Saga trivia, the comedy and indeed the odd jobs. That said, now that the idol stuff really took off they're probably gonna continue on that track but there could at least be some fun moments in them trying to avoid getting caught as zombies.

I know a second season was announced a little while ago if memory serves me right. We'll probably get more idol shit. I like the characters enough to come back though.
