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.

Can we take a moment to discuss what is one of the best anime out there: Hajime no Ippo?

This anime managed to inspire me and pump me up because the main character, Ippo Makunouchi, is the classic outcast loner type. Shy and diffident, small, submissive, gets bullied, but is a good guy deep down, very caring and generous. He's also hardworking, which I definitely can't identify with, but it is something I admire. He has a good reason to be hardworking, to support his single mom who is actually not a bitch or anything which is probably why Ippo is a good dude despite his meek demeanor which probably stems from the lack of a strong male role model because his father died young. Although I have a father, he is not strong nor a role model really so I can identify with this. Ippo has no hope for a bright future, just getting locked into the path that his capitalist society has determined for him due to economic conditions: continuing to help his mom run her fishing boat business. He has no other skills like charm, confidence, or assertiveness that could make him successful elsewhere anyway, but then, he has his fateful encounter with the sport of boxing.

This show doesn't try to delude anyone, basically normies in society will not like you unless you are useful to them, unless you have high social status, they will not respect you. I have always resented this fact about the world because I have no desire to engage in the social games of exploitation that normies have to play to climb the social ladder, or the stupid peacocking to pretend I've done it better than I really have, or any of the dumb normie bullshit in consumer society, but what this show does do is a provide an almost magical path, one of honor with simple and fair rules and methods of determining status, and that status is accepted by society at large.

Martial arts has a vaunted history in our society because of its massive usefulness to society since even before the dawn of civilization. It is truly primal, evoking the savage animalistic ways of determining dominance in primates like chimps or baboons. With the dawn of civilization it was also venerated because strength brought peace and prosperity and the warrior class assumed its role as the nobility the next step down from the priests and kings who rule the people. Even to this day, a warrior's strength is still respected. (Actual war though in modern times is so fucking disgusting I want nothing to do with it.)Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


I feel like the oxygen in my brain is gone just from reading this post.


>Go to a martial arts place for 3 years
>Made 0 friends and no one talks to me
>Everyone who knows I do martial arts still think they can beat me up because of how short and skinny I am

Ipo actually inspired me to do martial arts even though I have a chronic illness. But you're mistaken if you think you'll be respected by normies for doing it. The only time they'll respect you is if they do it themselves or you get famous from it. But even then, mma fighters, boxers, etc still get abuse.

Is this show worth getting into? I love shows from the 90s and 00s that are really cute and comfy.

I started watching it but the subs I found were really bad


I tried watching but it was too obnoxious and loud. Humor wasn't for me I guess. It's a shame because all the reviews really praise it for the character development. But I can't stand the succubus yelling every 2 minutes and acting retarded, I gave it 3 episodes but I can't do it.

To answer your question though just watch an episode or two, and you'll probably know whether or not it's for you.


What was bad about them?


They feel off even if you don't know japanese, sometimes they have timming issues, non translated dialog, etc.

Comments in animebytes talking about the release:
>I think these were bootlegs.
>(And sorry for my ignorance, but what's a bootleg? x=?)
>Non-legit copies of DVD's. They're usually from Hong Kong, the Philippines or China. The subs are usually (but not always) very poor and the timing of the subs can suck really bad too in some copies.

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

Just do rewatch sessions. From time to time when i cant find any new decent anime to watch i just pick one of my favorites and rewatch it and when i got a taste of it, because i always recognize how much i missed out on shows, i just keep going until something good is releasing.


1 - Writing a review of the show after you've viewed it helps.
2 - I don't know about you, but after I watch a show and then 'forget it,' I tend to have a 'fog of war' kind of memory when I return to it. After a few episodes, it's like my brain can surprisingly dig up the rest.
3 - Don't feel sad about the food you've forgotten, feel glad about the nutrition it's given you.


very wrong, unimportant detail can stay vivid yet important information is lost all the time, the brain is not nearly as productivity oriented and efficient as you seem to believe


I forget anime that I didn't enjoy enough to remember, so should you.

I literally only enjoy like three animes, CCS, Evangelion and Doremi.


What is it about those shows that speak to you as compared with everything else?


CCS because it's incredibly well written, well made and is extremely fun and comfy to watch. Doremi is pretty much the same but it's a lot funnier. Evangelion because it's fucking Evangelion, enough said.


I fully agree. Being elitist over your taste in media is incredibly pathetic. If the OP was rephrased to simply ask us what our favorite anime are, the thread would be much more wholesome.

Nyaa.se is down, rumored to be because the owner was afraid of new EU laws making pirating more dangerous, so it's unlikely it's coming back up again.

Use mirrors like:

I don't want a world where you can't try anime before you buy it.

This one here's Aldnoah.Zero. While many might argue that it's not really good, I actually managed to understand the anime on a deeper level. It has a lot of metaphors and says something a lot about Earth and the people living there. The main problem is that the characters are not so written well and being an anime with only 24 episodes, it kinda got rushed when it could have been a lot better if only they made more episodes of it. So, what mecha anime do you like, fellow apprentice wizards and wizards ?

You mean there is a mech anime where they use tactics rather then bullshit overpowered magic mechs like in littrally every other mech show?
That has been my main complaint about the genera. I had hope back in the day with shows like Code Geass because at the start it was sort of like that but they always devolve into "I win by default because magic mech bullshit" by the mid point or sooner.

I will give it a watch. I hope I am not disappointed. I need tactical mech battles in my life.


File: 1528337843491.jpg (115.78 KB, 952x536, 119:67, gargantia.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I thought this was pretty good, the premise is the MC gets trapped on earth after falling into a wormhole during a major space battle, and the whole series is about him trying to grasp how mankind can actually be nice and value one another instead of being used as expendable drones for a pointless war where all humans are seen as serving only to die

interesting plot twist, and some commentary about the value of human life. The MC does have a super overpowered space mech compared to the earth mechs, but that is actually an important part of the series, because he becomes an almost legendary deity for being in possession of technology beyond what earth dwellers have.


I wish there were more seasons, honestly.

Any anime you guys would recommend? I was gonna post on jp but it looks pretty dead.

Preferably an anime where the main character isn't some generic teenage hero

I don't watch a lot of anime but one that I enjoyed was Welcome to the nhk. I also thought Nichijou was quite funny.

i just finished psycho pass and i'd have to recommend it as well, but its a little depressing at the end so im gonna watch a short feel good anime to fix that, so any recommendations there would be nice. could someone tell me about "the ancient magus' bride" i've seen some trailers about it but i haven't been able to find anything on what the story is actually about.


Anyone else bored of anime?

Me, but I'm pretty much bored of everything. I'm trying to power through it sometimes when a show is supposed to be good apparently.
But I dunno, I'm starting to notice that the very factor of anime is worship of females and that maybe I'm not the target audience.

Can't watch Dragonball anymore…
Hiromi Tsuru (鶴 ひろみi, March 29, 1960 – November 16, 2017) was a Japanese actress and voice actress who was represented by Aoni Production. She was most known for voicing the character of Bulma (Dragon Ball) for over 31 years.


So sad…. but remember the good times


I prefer the younger Bulma.
