I don't like making /dep/ressing threads, especially on hobbyist boards like /jp/, but this has been bugging me for a long time now. Japan has always been a hot spot for foreigners, but I've noticed a lot, and I mean A LOT of people trying to invade the country recently. And to make things worse, not only will they eventually flood the gene pool, but they're going to pressure Japanese society into changing their morals as well. Don't think they wont, the Japanese are a very insecure race, especially young people that idolize shitty American pop culture. https://twitter.com/obskyr/status/1274628006103838720.

I'm so scared I'm going to live to see Japan's death before I even get to visit. I wish I could become some sort of stoic wizard samurai and kill any foreigners who plot against the country and its people, spreading propaganda. It infuriates me that eventually SJWs will be normalized in Japan, and people will still deny the fact that Japan will change, saying shit like "nawwww that wont happen" until it does. It happened to the majority of Europe, it'll happen to Nippon too.

you know sony is also an electronics and music company right? As a corporation they are much bigger than nintendo.


That doesn't matter. Nintendo in the grand scheme of things is more influential in this subculture precisily because they are more concentrated in things like videogames.


>No they are not
They actually do.


Aniplex doesn't "own" anime, the first owner of anime are the creators and authors. Who very often are the writers of light novels, novels, manga and so on, simply because they are the ones who create the original thing. When the anime itself has not "source material", then the direct creators pass to be the ones involved in the anime studio, while ownership is more complicated to determinate. While in many cases Aniplex has the distribution of some anime, they're not the only one producing it (let alone making it directly, which is on the anime studio).

Good for us, Japan doesn't replicate the way of doing things of the West. In which you will probably be in the right and one company will own almost everything, you like an author will need to comply with whatever crap the company in question comes up, or be shunned.
The way in which Japan does things is not the optimal of the ways, I think it should be more descentralized and more "indie". But it still far away from the nightmare that is the West right now. And that's one of the reason why they have anime in the first place.


They are mainly a publisher.
It is rare that they own the copywrite to the things the publish and executive produce.

I'm a Canadian wizard, is this series any good? Is it at least historically accurate?

I haven't watched the Pokemon anime in a really long time, did they ever have another good series? I only know that they changed the animation style after all these years and they gave Ash a love interest or something? What do you wizards think of this series?

I'm gonna start the Sun & Moon series, sub or dub?

It's officially been one year since the end of Sun & Moon's syndication, I gotta say, I miss that series quite alot. It had such a distinctive, different feel from any other Pokemon series: the atmosphere, the music, the sceneries, it felt so relaxing and laid back. The characters were all very likable and were fleshed out quite a bit, you really felt like you got to know all of them. The somewhat recent episode of the new series where Satoshi goes back to Alola was nice, definitely nice to see that series is still canon and wasn't immediately forgotten by the time the new arc came about. Can't wait to see more Alola in the future!

Platinum was successful for the most part. HGSS sealed the deal by being a near perfect remake unlike ORAS. As >>32249 said, I lost interest after I saw GenV Pokemon and being based around shit york and have not played another game since.


Tried watching the old 4Kids dub for some nostalgia, it was painful. I can't believe kids watched that stupid crap (myself included)

What are your thoughts on the AOTY?
Seriously, it's been a while that I had so much fun watching an anime.
I am unironically going to rewatch it.

Learn Japanese for like a week or two to know the basics, then go to Japanese imageboards and try to parse the text with google translate and dictionary. That's what it took for me to realize that Japanese imageboards is just as if not more retarded than English ones. But I didn't hang out long and made my judgement quickly so maybe I am wrong.


Don't ordainary people in japan use imageboards because they value anonymity meaning that the imageboards would be similar to a anonymous reddit with a Japanese culture that is anonymous so more open to sharing their true thoughts without worrying about being downvoted but still essentially normalfags?

I imagine there would be all types of chans in japan including many for losers because people are more open to using a IB in the first place.


I kind of regretted acting know-it-all because I realized I know fuck all about Japanese or Japanese internet but I still think that my method is good to see if it's really suitable for you. Learn the basics of Japanese (the barest basics won't take too long), look for boards that seem loser-like, put the original and machine translated page side by side, get a pop-up or other kind of dictionary and then start working through it like you're some kind of ancient language scholar. The surest way is to see for yourself.


Japanese imageboards are very frivolous and pretty inactive. If you wanted to actually have a discussion, you'd go to a textboard. The big one is 5ch. It can be decent entertainment but it's largely unmoderated and full of trolls and all kinds of repulsive malicious cretins. It's not generally dominated by normalfags, though there are some and otaku certainly love to shit on themselves.
There are other sites with better moderation. I browse one on shitaraba.com about a niche otaku interest, which is decent. There are boards specifically for hikki but I haven't looked closely at them. Here's the 5ch one: https://matsuri.5ch.net/hikky/
At least on the boards I've read, Japanese people are very cold to each other. There's no sense of community. It's mostly people flinging jokes and brief impressions back and forth. But if your only concern is escaping western-style normalfags, you might like that. Just don't expect to find people you actually like.


On second thought, 5ch *is* dominated by normalfags – people who either adhere to the norms of their society or at least believe those norms are correct. But in my opinion, the norms of Japanese society are a bit less disgusting than the West's. They're still pretty bad though, and sometimes bad in ways that western norms aren't.

Do you know any more anime that give you a feeling of isolation and loneliness? Where the interactions between characters are short? Where it's more about the atmosphere created by images and sound rather than story and dialogue? They don't necessarily have to take place in desolate places. It could also be about the sense of isolation you get from living in a big city.

that's not quite what mono no aware refers to, it's a concept that's definitely more tied to how iyashikei shows function than a lot of the sci-fi anime you listed.


None of the shows I listed were fully compatible with mono no aware, but as most of the good ones were already mentioned I opted for a few I felt had such moments now and then, be it in outer space or on earth.


I disagree with giving the farmer boy as the only example of a character in that story who achieved success. If anything, he's one of the more tragic ones, as in the final quarter of the show he's seen content only because of drowning himself in alcohol. Every character but him finds some sort of grounding in reality, while he continues living in the illusion predetermined for him by his ancestors. That being said, I'd recommend the show as well.


That scene in the first episode where she visits the town where everyone went insane after gaining telepathy really stuck with me


>Day 1 - Chill
>Day 2 - Nice stuff you got heeeee-
>End of Day 2/beginning of Day 3-Y'ALL BE FUCKED UP, BYYYYYYYYYYYYYE.
Every episode.

I heard of Street Fighter gamers going to Japan as a path to improve their game. It would be cool to go to Japan to learn how to make ramen or forging a katana.

What skills would learn if you can make it to Japan?

your telling me food porn is like watching



It tries to be so deceptive that I only see its deception. The way they present the food feels fake.


There was some talk about traveling through japan and sleeping outside etc couple years backwards. Found this video today and it made me think about that thread, didn't see it by quickly glancing through the catalog so I'm posting it here, enjoy.


It's sad that this video will go on to inspire millions of redditors to pretend they're poor in a foreign country, which will then make this type of travel heavily restricted.


No it wont. Quit Perl clutching.

Just finished binging Fire Punch and holy. Fucking. Shit. This was fantastic from start to finish. Have anyone else read it? What did you think about this manga?

I've started reading Chainsaw Man by the same author and it's just as good. This mangaka is fuckin crazy


File: 1594313612116.jpg (1.46 MB, 2000x5000, 2:5, 1590820950067.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Picked it up after catching up with ChainsawMan, Really is good, I did not see any of these twists coming.

Very excited to see what the mangaka has in store for ChainsawMan after seeing how batshit Fire Punch got.


soooooo it's a fantasy story?


The manga was a fun read but very shit in many ways became convulted trash and the ending is a good way to spot normalfaggot big brain larpers because people pretend it was deep wen it is clear the author was just seeing how wacky he/she could get.
The manga started out VERY strong though but got all shit after a few arcs.


It's the meme man!!! xD


Hey /jp/ I like moe but not all moe and I have to wonder what makes certain moe good? is it hard to quantify what makes the genera worth praising compared to other anime?

How did you get into moe and is it more of an otaku thing to enjoy moe plus does liking moe and being a lolicon go handin hand or just help?

I think colour scheme has a lot to do with what makes moe so good and also a plot that is engaging enough yet barely engaging also.

It's highly digestible, endearing, barely any thinking required to enjoy it, safe, pleasing designs and overall visually appealing. You have to add some balance there because if that's the only thing you watch it can get pretty boring eventually. When you start dozing off in the middle of episodes it's probably a good idea try to something else for a while.

For the wizzies out there with an actual power level, recently I found out there's someone uploading 百合姫 to nyaa, there are good titles in there that never become anime but are pretty good if you like manga.


Just finished the first episode of the anime in your image and it exceeded my expectations for being cute the art was nice ad I just wish it had deeper daerker colours as I do watch anime while trying to sleep but that is a personally thing.

I like the face moe makes me doze off as watching regular anime is too hard for me now and I really enjoy the feeling of falling asleep to something.
