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.

I dropped anime when normies started watching and enjoying it. How am I supposed to have the same hobbies as normals?

>>29643
What >>29647 said. It is a pretty accurate portrayal, just not one worth watching (and not a good series as a whole). Still, I liked the ending of the anime (which is different to the manga afaik), after trying to be normal she just goes back to her room laughs it off and goes back to her pc.

 No.31106

The manga is fun but I've enough of high school life. I wish someone would make something like it but with the mc older and more isolated. There are a couple of titles out there but they're too short or the plot has too many fantastical elements for me to really get into it.

 No.31147

I just can not get past the cringe. I can't. It just makes me think it's a cruel fucking joke, "You gotta get past the cringe, anon *snicker*, it'll get gud then *giggle*." Not to mention every cringy moment triggers a mirrored memory of my own that I've been trying so desperately to FORGET.

Yeah like, holy shit, Can the manga end already? The anime left off on a good note, kind of leaving a tone of acceptance. The manga is just dragging its last limb and is becoming normal moe cancer. I still love Tomoko, I dont think I will ever dislike the series due to her.

Nah, I sorta felt the same as well. She was very endearing & enchanting at first, but became far too cruel & heartless for a delicate wizard like me to stay infatuated with her. For a start, the things she & Fuminori did to Yoh were simply unforgivable. No love can be fostered, sustained or even survive in the face of inflicting such massive suffering towards another. In the end though, despite relishing Saya's dying screams, her death remained somewhat bittersweet. Why did you need to be so cruel Saya? Why did it have to come to this? Perhaps the monstrousness of your origins combined with you absorbing the monstrousness of the human heart is enough to explain what I wish weren't true. You may not have realized it, but your death was a mercy, most of all to yourself. Goodbye Saya. You were never meant for this world. (Kneels down and places a single dandelion on Saya's desecrated little monster corpse)

What is love? Saya don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more.

When all's said & done, I'd much rather take Yoh or Ryoko over Saya. Might also try some of the other visual novels in this thread, since Saya no Uta was essentially my first.

 No.31432

>>31431
I'm the type of guy to prefer Saya. It would be reveling to see the oligarch's factories crumble as a result of an eldritch converting everyone into meat monsters. Saya also has that otherworldly mystique to her that I would gladly offer myself to.

 No.31436

>>31432

Well, like I said, perhaps I'm just a pansy, but Saya's growing propensity for sadism & abject cruelty as it manifests throughout the novel, really shattered the image I'd had of her. That being, a kind, gentle (well mostly gentle, given her diet), somewhat mischievous & misunderstood creature who simply wanted to be loved and whom would never hurt anyone, at least not intentionally.

As a result, I could somewhat forgive what she did to Suzumi, given how naively ignorant & misguided her actions were to a certain extent and that even she herself suffered the repercussions from them, perhaps learning her lesson in the process. What she did to Yoh later on however? What she did with such premeditated, merciless cruelty? Why Saya? You were supposed to be better than this. Now you're just as monstrous & barbaric as the dirtiest of normalfags. Just as cruel & heartless as the most demonic of females. You were supposed to be different. I wanted you to be different. I mean, honestly, the way she just casually suggests that Fuminori should test out his axe on poor, little Yoh quivering in the corner. The fact she's already wracked with such constant pain, due to Saya's botched mutation of her, and that she would then go on to utter such a horrible, horrible thing. That hurts me Saya. That hurts me so much. By comparison, her "blooming", as it were, and dooming the world to an eldritch induced apocalypse, seemed tame by comparison.

Anyway, like I said before, I'm a very gentle hearted wizard. Saya, despite her unassuming form, just felt so very coarse & jagged to me past a certain point. Like the pedals of a bashful, little flower, Saya's true face & heart, stomped the little flower of a Wizard I am flat. Again, all the horrible things she both says aloud & does and all the malevolence & sadism she delights in was simply too much for my delicate constitution. I suppose one could say Ryoko was also quite cruel in her own way, but even she seems mild by comparison. Why does everybody have to be so mean? I just wanted Saya to be my gentle wiz wife, not a cruel monster, taken after normalfags.

 No.31437

I don't remember her showing empathy to anyone except main character which was perfect to me. getting a second succubus having Saya was shit glad she got killed

 No.31438

also that shit felt forced like the studio told the creator lol we can't just have loli we need to appeal to norm audience add that cowtit too or else! that and the part we're Saya was raped sucked I forgive for killing a cat since she was an alien and didn't know much plus how many cats have humanity tortured in comparison is nothing

I remember in one thread we used to discuss japanese music. Thanks to this thread I found out about Nomak and Mari Hamada who became some of my favorite artists. I noticed the thread does not exist anymore and I thought we should start another one now. Anons might appreciate it like I do.

finished project Itoh. The second movie, empire of corpses, was a really fun setting. It was a steampunk mixed with traditional monster flick. Enjoyed this movie alot.
The final movie "Harmony" i felt was the weakest. I got tired of the protagonists monologues after a few minutes of the movie. The constant flashbacks were also not needed. I struggled to finish this movie.
Anyone know of any other good sci-fi animes? I'm new to anime and have seen very little.

Have you watched Ghost in the Shell? both the movie and the tv series (Stand Alone Complex), they are pretty good and usually recommended as entry level anime.
Psycho Pass is nice too.

 No.28857

So is someone going to make a new one of these or what?

Anyway I marathoned one show and one OVA.
Happy Sugar Life
And Alien 9

I thought I was prepared for Happy Sugar Life. I thought I knew what I was in for. Simply put I was not. Everybody in the show is fucking crazy and not in a fun way. There was maybe one sane character of importance and they died. Over all the lesson I got from the show is that love is scary and I want nothing to do with it at all.

Alien 9 was a 4 ep OVA from the early 00s. It was just a tease story wise and overall not very good at all. It also had a bad case of EVA syndrome if you know what I mean. Mopey reluctent MC, beats you over the head with it trying to be deeper then it really is, trying to do psychological stuff but not really understanding the genera or how people work so character motivations are simply broken, etc.
Though the worst thing about it is that it was kind of on the boring side.

Depending on how you feel about mechs you might want to try Patlabor and Macros.
The movies are pretty good.
Appleseed isn't bad though some of the CG used for vehicles hasn't aged well.
And since you mentioned steampunk I might as well throw in SteamBoy, which is a great film and example of the steampunk sub-genera.

Steamboy? AKIRA was better if you want the same director.

Reminder that an in depth enjoyment of naruto is anti-normalfag, as regular normals enjoy naruto on a very superficial level, maybe only watching a few episodes every now and then, and internet/4chan discord chads hate naruto because it isn't hardcore weeb enough.
Naruto is perfect for wizards. Pain is the perfect anti-natalist wiz.

Its not clear if you are wanting anime recommendations or not but if you liked naruto it seems probable that you would like the other huge popular shonens. Bleach, HunterxHunter, One Piece, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, Yu Yu Hakusho. See if one of those interests you, but there are plenty more if those ones arent to your taste.

Does anyone on here live/want to live in Japan? I know I do.

To be clear I'm not some faggot weeaboo who thinks that life in Japan is just like the animes and there will be katana duels in the streets and schoolgirls screaming "UGUU SENPAI" everywhere but I do like the culture and the aesthetic of the country, especially Tokyo but also the really rural parts of the country.

I've looked around and there's a lot of work in my field, most of it mercifully conducted in English. Apartments are also fairly affordable, at least outside of the hubs of the biggest cities. There's nothing really keeping me in the states; my family has basically forgotten about me, I have no friends and my work is all online so it goes where I go. I'd have to sell my guns but that's not really a huge loss for me, plus it'd be nice to have a cash infusion right before I go.

Any stories or advice?

Didn't see one in the catalog, so I'd like to have a thread on Japanese internet to share interesting things we've come across. Can be videos, sites, articles, particular threads, etc.

I just watched the first three episodes of Flying Witch. I wanted to like it but I'm dropping it now. My initial impressions are outlined below.

The characters in this are poorly developed and dimensionless. Lame, bland characters like this are crippling to any SOL series. Furthermore, none of the characters are likable.

The script of the show is very dry and boring. It feels like a rough draft. The scenes themselves progress very slowly and screentime is constantly wasted. This is not a pacing issue but simply one of low value per unit of time.

The atmosphere is not immersive. It feels artificial and forced.

Visually, the setting looks okay but the character designs are ugly. The colour palette is bland and boring.

That is all I have to say.
I'm happy to hear other opinions.

 No.31225

Watching Dr. Stone. It's much better than I expected it to be so far.
