I've noticed that on imageboards finding anti-anime posters tends to be a pretty reliable red flag. In particular, finding posters who get really upset on someone posting some anime image is one helluva red flag. Why is that?

I have never taken my perception of the Japanese wageslave life from anime but from people who actually worked there. There's lots of videos by both Japanese and foreigners who work or have worked in Japan for whom that was a very real experience.

Just an example: https://youtu.be/6tmjXp_AYg0



Being a hobo in Japan doesn't seem bad honestly.


The Simpsons is social criticism and does represent the vision the author has about reality, exaggerated for comic purposes. And that's how comedy in general works, unless it's absurdist, like Pop Team Epic for example.

If there's a comedic sequence where drunken men complain about working overtime, it only makes sense on the conditions that either they do work overtime or that they inaccurately amplify their issues when drunk.


anime isn't a good filter anymore becausr normalfags are into it now (it become really popular last 5 years)

In this thread we say we love our waifus.

Today is Lynne-chan's birthday! She hopes everyone is doing their best!

I love my waifu and she loves me. Our mutual love is interdimensional and binds us together across the dimension currently separating us.

And happy birthday to Lynette-san!

What sites do you use to get raw manga? Sites can be for reading, or downloading.

This was the pic you asked for btw. Links to raw sites would be good because I've had kira bookmarked for years, apparently it's dead now!

While we're at it we might as well throw in JP subs too. IDK why they aren't released with post-disc releases, they'd give a big boost to weebs learning Japanese.



oh no no no

Escaflowne thread?

Went into this blind after looking to explore the Mecha genre separate from Gundam. I was pleasantly surprised with the solid pacing and unique presentation, it's a great show to immerse yourself in, great for escapism.

It was the popularity the show had outside of Japan that led to the production of the movie funnily enough. Popular enough in western countries like in Germany for example


Why did they totally change the OP music?


I'm not sure if this is my favorite mecha or not. The number of anime and things that I enjoy in general seems to be decreasing so who knows if I would even still like this show if I watched it again.


I have never seen any modern fantasy anime movies with the epic feel of the movie. How tf does a 2000 movie beat out everything fantasy today


Isekai done right. Hate isekai when it's so video-gamey that there's stats everywhere…

The new Love Live music video is CUTE CUTE CUTE !!!!!! The song sounds pretty good too.

I'm still undecided about how I feel about the Nijigasaki generation. This latest release looks promising though. I worry that the characters might be poorly written despite the musical content being decent.

The future direction of the franchise seems unclear at this point. I'm hoping that we'll get at least one more anime season for Aqours. It looks like they're starting to release solo music albums for each Aqours member. Hopefully Corona doesn't seriously affect the financial viability of the franchise.

A new generation has been announced recently ("Love Live Superstar"). At this point that generation is a total wild card. I'm cautiously optimistic about the smaller size of the group though (5 members). Larger group sizes mean that some members can be kind of neglected; this is particularly true in the animated content. So a smaller group might have better character development. It'll probably also diminish any scheduling problems with the various seiyuus. On the other hand though, if one character is a bad singer then it will have a stronger effect on the overall quality of the vocals. So hopefully they will all be good vocalists.

Anyway, let's have a thread about MY FAVOURITE FRANCHISE OF ALL TIME. Yay!

No spoilers ITT plz. Let's discuss how much we love Love Live and how we feel about the future of the franchise. Let's post musical content and art, and talk about our favourite characters and ships! Who is the best singer and what are your favourite songs? Will the soul of the franchise and fanbase be preserved as these new generations are introduced?

I couldn't find Awaken the power anywhere on the internet so I uploaded it myself.
It's the best love live song.

tsushima/riko date



> favourite characters and ships!

Found a Sakurauchi Riko/Tsushima Yoshiko fic on another site, to go with the date pic >>38163.
> “You’re the succubus from Tokyo! The one that got kicked out of her old school! Ruby told me all about you, after Dia told her…Dia-san is the student council president; she’s Ruby’s sister.” Then, after a moment, she added, “Ruby is one of my little demons. Er, I mean, she’s in my class. Anyway, she said you’re dangerous and I should stay away from you, so I’ve been trying to find you for days.”

I am not so deep into LL that I ship fanatically, but the little I've seen of AiRina is awakening something in me. It is a good combo.
KasuKasu is my favorite Niji though

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

They probably ain't staying up for long so download them while you can.


I checked and it's all stuff that's already been posted to Saeed's MEGA folder and torrent sites, but uploaded in worse quality because


Heartwarming Theater is finally being translated
Make sure to seed partners


It's so much better than that shitty movie that came out earlier this year.


It's so hard to go back to the earlier two seasons before Momoko is introduced and Hana-Chan aged herself up.

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

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


Old man is bitter; news at 11.


Is miyazaki just a simp since he is obsessed with succubi?


He's right and you all know it. There's nothing wrong with being in love with a 2d 12-yo. A 3d one is a different story, but not because of the age, but because it's 3d simping, which should be punishable by death.

What should be the best measures that we should take to gatekeep anime has hard as it get?
Remember, if you don't believe in gatekeeping, you are a normalgroid.

Some measures that I suggest are:
-Knowing in deep a lot about an anime, visual novel, light novel, novel, manga or game in particular.
-Having a decent knowledge about the medium.
-Being very invested into at least one work.
-Being very invested at least in one fandom.

Is not neccesary to have all these things, but at least one. What more should be added?

I agree completely only you need to ditch the "SJW" label, it's an empty dodge term, these people don't care about justice, they're hateful feminists and when they pretend to care about race or diversity they're intersectional feminists.


I will use whatever the fuck terms I want.


Not an argument.


It's a lost cause, disney is going to make the next big anime and they're going to hire animators from china and korea but the main writer and art director is going to be some troon or twitter feminist


How do you gatekeep something that's already had it's gates broken, at the very minimum, a decade ago?

Share scenes from anime you like, found interesting, or that caught your attention.
You can also explain what you like or found interesting about it.

I'll begin, in this one scene, which is from an anime for kids, you can be misled into thinking that these two had sex. It gives that impression, which makes a scene that should be sad and romantic, a hilarious one.

My favorite anime scene.


The kind of people who continue to watch anime as adults tend to have a peurile sense of humor.
