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.

>download this because it looks pretty nice
>it's dubbed
My own fault for not checking



I can't decide whether or not this is my favorite mecha series. Underrated series that never gets the praise it deserves.


Not really underrated since it was praised back then but forgotten among new audiences. The series was really unpopular in Japan though

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!

This scene felt so out of place.


The bath scene is vital to the plot, it's just too deep for you to understand. Showing Sakura bathing with Kero was the first hint at Sakura's innocence and her ignorance towards all things Love/romance/sex. If she were to be shown or even left to believe that she doesn't want to bathe with Kero, it would give the impression that she's knowledgeable about sex and decency, and would therefore paint a different picture about her feelings towards the end where she isn't catching on to Li-kun's advances. It would make the whole situation appear as if Sakura was aware of his feelings (being so knowledgeable about relationships as to understand you don't bathe with dudes you don't also want fathering your children), but just didn't care.


lol, has there ever been a japanese show with a little succubus that didn't feature scenes of her nude at some point? It's like they just can't help themselves


No and it's gross.

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.

Thanks wiz, this is a good resource. Do you have any favorites?

*Nukunukunigirimeshi (excuse the typo)


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

The websites were closed forever, the owners said.

I am so sad and heartbroken, as are hundreds of thousands of other people who loved the website.

Is that a problem?



Streaming anime's nice when you cant find an obscure film/show on a torrent site. Also who are you quoting?

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?

i don't care or have a stance, i just said my prediction. i think quite a bit will be different to the point i'm actually gonna feel sorry for any wiz that decides to travel to japan any time this year or soon after


anime, video games and VNs (including the perverted otaku stuff) is too valuable to Japan as a cultural export, they're not getting rid of it because of the olympics that's just the usual doomsday prophesiers who have been ranting that anime is ruined since the 90s

For all those who have lost hope in true love IRL, let's have a must have-tier Eroges thread. Wizard, NEET, Hikky and Otaku related are preferred.

I'll start with Otama! Otaku Nakama wa Chikkoi Mania and Semen Security 2009. They were really fun games.

What would fellow wizards recommend?

Pick a game that looks easy on vndb, preferably one that has a modern day setting and lots of slice of life scenes and then have a look at the screenshots. If you can read the majority of words in every screenshot that the game has then it's probably going to be an easy one. The easiest way to read is using yomichan/rikaisama and the clipboard inserter extension so that you can display all the text from the text hooker on your web browser and look up any word you don't know instantly.


Have a look through here if you want to know how to set it up. The most important thing though is to keep persevering. For me, learning the secret of what cute 2d succubi are actually saying is one of the few things I actually enjoy doing so I just keep trying no matter how hard it gets.

Posting here since the other thread reached the bump limit - thanks to the wiz >>32483 who recommended other denpage to me, in particular Kusarihime. I finally got around to reading it last night after taking a half-year long break from visual novels due to work, and I have to say it came pretty close to surpassing Sayonara wo Oshiete as my favorite visual novel.

The start of the game is mostly the typical small-town countryside Japanese town setting, with a few weird mythological elements thrown in. The protagonist has amnesia and returns to his hometown with his family in the hopes that it'll help him recall his past. The first few days mostly consist of some simple slice of life stuff and exposition, with introductions to a bunch of key characters. But a few weird occurrences tell you something is off. Then you're introduced to the time-loop system, where you have to keep restarting the game and reliving the same few days with some very vague and limited memory of the past loops. Each time things go a little differently, and as you progress more and more of the protagonist's dark past is revealed.

(spoilering my general thoughts since they spoil the remainder of the game)

The gradual revealing of the protagonist's past was done very well. Every so often you get a memory that comes up - sometimes with voice only, often just snippets of conversations - which hint at something darker and deeper. Then the game will eventually reveal the whole scene - sometimes only after you've gone through several time loops. There are also some scenes which come up after the reveal which has the protagonist and the other character involved in his memory going on separate monologues in their thoughts. It could've been really corny and hackneyed if executed poorly, but they did a brilliant job of placing these scenes in exactly the right place, and juxtaposed the thoughts of the protagonist and the other character involved so skillfully, that it really hit hard. The first of these scenes is with Ise, a classmate in college, and reveals the emotional turmoil as misunderstandings between the 2 cause them to go their separate ways without ever revealing their true feelings to each other. It's hard to describe without the full context - everything that comes before this scene really serves to strengthen its impact - but it's executed excellently and not in a poor way like many types of these situations are.

I bought whatever release of this was on Jlist in 2013/2014, played it once, and never touched it again. it's a very nice story with good writing and atmosphere, but under no circumstances could I do any of the non Aeka routes. The thought of her being bullied to suicide while the MC dicked around with either drugged up loli or mawmy was a boner breaker. The writers had a missed opportunity to have it so if you decided to ignore Aeka, your other male friend would hook up with her, so at least she would be safe while you indulged in uncharted pussy, but from what I remember he is also a near bully and just doesn't give a flip about her feelings. Maybe that's how it actually went down but I'm not touching it again.

What an existence, to have an inconvenient level of compassion for pixels while we scoff at and walk by real people crying for help all around us. Truly a wiz feeling.

Let's have a thread to post aesthetically pleasing anime-style art. We can post nice character designs, landscapes, cute couples (hetero or otherwise), franchise promo art, wallpapers, etc…

This thread could be a catch-all for anything that doesn't belong in the gender-specific threads.

Nothing too sexualized please. There are already other threads for that kind of thing.

Why am I so mad Supreme are making jackets with Toshio Saeki art on them?

Do you think it'll be just a one off thing or are normlfags gonna be into Ero Guro now?

I checked price estimations and it's gonna cost around 400$ for the jacket, so not only are swagfag normans gonna wear the late & great Toshio's art it's gonna be rich swagfag normans.

What's next? Will Ariana Grande wear Anal Cunt merch?
You are welcome to post your fave Ero Guro that's not hentai.
