There is a vast sea of Japanese films out there, and I can imagine most of /jp/ has only scratched the surface. What are the qualifications for a "hard to find Japanese film" you ask?
>rarbg, nyaa, kissasian doesn't carry what you're looking for, and pt's don't want your wizardly company
>the movie has no re-releases, or even a home video release at all
>the director doesn't even remember the production of the film you're after
What are some movies you've had interest in, but no way to watch?

I saw an obscure film called Village of Doom 1983.
It's about the Tsuyama massacre where a young man with TB murdered almost his entire village over the course of a single night. He was ostracized by succubi for having TB.
It's a great film. I like how it takes a very neutral view of the protagonist. It doesn't artificially portray him as a scumbag as he transforms from a nice guy into someone who just snaps.
The last 30 minutes are great. It's frantic and unrelenting as he runs through the town murdering everyone with his shotgun and katana with sadistic glee. There's a lot of first person camera shots too.
Unfortunately the only place I was able to find it was avistaz. It's a great tracker and I got into it pretty easily recently by hanging around on their invite discord server until they randomly did a sign up one day. I love old japanese films so it was well worth it for me. I highly recommend it for anyone interested.


I got in and kicked out due to inactivity few years ago. I'm such a fucking idiot.


I don't know much but interested in Japanese films. I saw this late one night when I was in prison lol. I literally had a stinky abo who couldn't read as a cellmate. He'd watch CSI all afternoon and night till he fell asleep while I studied. Past midnight obscure world cinema would play sometimes on the sbs network here and I saw this film milocrorze. It's fucking weird but funny.


Try Godzilla.


Just watched this after seeing this post. I know this movie is over 10 years old now but that slow motion sword fight was one of the best set pieces i've seen in a film in a long time. Hearing the director say he got the idea from classical Japanese scroll art makes it even better.

Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless. The world of imageboards needs a place for niche otaku discussion, but alas, no site caters to such interest. What with the modern day youth on this site, there'd probably just be a bunch of Vtuber threads to take all the anime discussion's place. What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?

I was on the internet archive page for a bunch of evangelion content and came across an animated porno called "the human rape project" which featured misato, shinji, asuka, rei, and ritsuko all having sex while gendo occasionally talks in Japanese.

I'm not a big hentai watcher but am a huge evangelion fan and was shocked. The animation was suspiciously on-model for most characters. Is this an officially licensed product? Does a subtitled version exist?

I dunno how they do it in Japan


>The animation was suspiciously on-model for most characters
Which isn't much of a feat of skill when Evengelion had trash animation to begin with, especially for its time. It wouldn't take many skilled hands working at a hentai studio to replicate it.

It most definitely wasn't licensed, nor did it need to be. Intellectual property laws in Japan have always allowed for fanworks of any quality or content to be sold privately. Look at Comic Market where unlicensed merchandise is sold by the metric ton. So long as "fan work" is specified, artists are allowed to use any fictional character's likeness right down to the name.


> Evengelion had trash animation to begin with, especially for its time
No, it had pretty great animation, you retard.


>No, it had pretty great animation, you retard.
It did not. You may be confusing an older style with good animation. The style was nothing special for the time period, whereas the animation was particularly choppy and relied on simplification of elements to even make the mecha segments passable. Must it be explained again that the whole series was "bad on purpose"? Even the storyboard and animation directors were saing that they didn't care about anything and just wanted to get the second half of the series out so they could work on better things. It wasn't even popular for its time and still isn't among Japanese otaku. It is only preserved and promoted in memes such as OP's image. Evengelion was shat and always will be shit.


>No, it had pretty great animation
No they didn't and they mismanaged their animation budget to a comical extent.

how can i watch anime with both english and japanese subs?


A lot of players allow for two subtitles at once. He is using mpv, but it requires some technical knowledge to implement any feature. I know Daum Potplayer does it without the need to do anything besides checking the option in the menu.



You give it a local video file and Japanese subs and it will machine translate each line and you can hover over words to see meaning.

I'm looking for mangas that tell story of people like us: outcast, losers, NEETs, oddballs, hikkis and such.

I only found Welcome to NHK. Does anyone know more?

WataMote is not a Yuri bait now?


She recommended Omori, so she has likely only seen the 12-episode animated commercial for the WataMote manga.


Saltiness is the only true wiz manga i can think of.


I read it up to the school field trip where Ucchi starts to fall for her.

I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.

does anything comparable to bebop exist at all? the atmosphere is unbeatable. grim and merry at the same time. and what's most important doesn't make you cringe like dorohedoro for example. there are so few of these comfy anime with nice atmosphere. i know none except bebop that would offer such comfy space setting.


Bebop is just some normalfag US obsession, I hope there aren't more like it.


should i just go watch some more isekai then? isekai is a miracle of the universe


I'm sorry, you right, I love Cowboy Bepop as well.

I want to discuss something that has been bothering me about anime. There is a certain subset of anime that is essentially a way for losers to fantasize about being popular and powerful normalfags who get all the succubi. The typical format is a fantasy harem show where the MC is some loser with a typical self-sacrificing nice guy routine. He saves some succubus from X danger and kills himself so he gets isekaied as a noble with overpowered magic powers and his memories intact. In the show he keeps up his usual nice guy act, often being quite milquetoast and useless, but he gets plot armored into all the succubi liking him and other positive things so his nice guy routine is rewarded to the max. The other thing is that the succubi are usually underage for some reason.

I think there is something vaguely fucked up about this whole situation. First off, these corporations are targeting people who are clearly mentally unwell and lack confidence in life and they are catering to their fantasies in ways that are pretty fucked up. I mean if you have no confidence and are attracted to little succubi, that should not be encouraged or normalized because it's fucked up. Men who lack confidence seem to view little succubi as less threatening because they share their ignorance about social customs and the world, even to a greater extent than the man in question, depending upon how low he goes in age. The more fucked up they are mentally, the younger they seem to want. It betrays a desire to be able to control the situations and perceptions of the succubus and not be humiliated.

But let's set aside the pedo aspect for a second, even without that, this shit is fucked up. The whole point of the show is for weak and broken people to self insert as the MC so they can fantasize about a situation that compensates for all their inherent weaknesses (which the MC is shown to share in spades) and delivers to them the perfect normalfag life where they are at the top of the social pyramid. They are the most powerful, most popular, with the harem of the most attractive succubi. Is this really something that wizards should be watching and fantasizing about? Isn't is just kind of, pathetic? Real life will never plot armor you into any of that shit, if your fantasies revolve around things that you will never have in real life (but which do exist in real life, ie power, wealth, hot succubi etc), won't you just end up wanting to fucking kill yourself?

pretty much all anime has a youth obsession. I suppose it has to do something with Japan being dominated by old people. Occasionally you have some old guy warrior or some knowledgeable old lady, but they are always background characters.


I don't consume anything besides wish fulfillment content anymore. At least they make me feel good like a drug unlike whatever mature slop that I just can't care about.
>muh deep and realistic characters
I don't care
>muh well thought out and executed plot
I don't care
>muh deep commentary on philosophy and society
I don't care
>hordes of anime succubi going uguu kawaii
Ok now that's good shit

Have you watched any of World Masterpiece Theatre's adaptions? There's a lot of relaxing, simple, endearing adventure to be had there with no substantial action or plot. Any commentary just acts as context for the historical environments in which the series take place.

Daily reminder that the mods = Gods.


Never heard of it. When I say anime succubi I am more thinking around the line of trashy harem isekai and such. I am afraid more tasteful works would be too uninteresting for my plebian brain.


well no shit those shows suck. I don't know how any self respecting individual could be into that. If i found myself liking those isekai anime's where its just some dumb niceguy who goes and gets fucked or whatever by the anime succubi i'd slit my wrists. Shonens are for boys isekai's are for the kinds of people you see who just look sickly, pale, malformed. they are either extremely overweight or extremely underweight. You know then when you see them because they look like they were never fully formed in the womb. I thought this was all self evident.

>First off, these corporations are targeting people who are clearly mentally unwell and lack confidence in life and they are catering to their fantasies in ways that are pretty fucked up

it's clearly stooping to a low to make money.

I enjoy media where a character is trapped in a terrible situation with no way out. irumyuui and mitty in made in abyss or the magical succubi in madoka magica are good examples of this. What other anime/manga portray this and the feelings of despair and hopelessness that come with with it?


"Shadow Star Narutaru" uses that a lot.

I do enjoy watching OVAs and movies, but long TV shows I can't get around anymore. Anything more than 26 episodes I just don't even bother starting anymore.
Is this ADD? Did I ever like actually anime? why do I still like anime, especially old 80s/90s OVAs but can't sit through new TV series anymore?

>Watch something good

yeah sure anime is all about talent
no really
there is so much wisdom in it
so deep
so many hidden cues
and animation is so striking, the best animation in the world
especially 3d, when i see it i get stricken dead by its beauty
anime has some of the best plot arcs ever written in media, including all available literature
there is nothing that even nearly compares to anime
don't take me wrong, your reply is funny, but i fully agree that anime is all about talent
if it wasn't for the extreme talent of those creating it…
anime is the best thing ever invented
i have never enjoyed anything this much
and plot, man, the plot, it's so amazing. i have not seen any single writer who would even nearly compare to japanese storytellers
holy shit i'm so hyped right now
anime is so good
it must have been created by the god
and may the god multiply the talents of people making it even further
