Mushoku Tensei is my favorite Anime, and I think it should be very relatable to wizards. Its where a Wizard gets reincarnated as a literal Wizard.

Whatever the reasoning, I'm excitimoso for it.


thank you op for making me discover this anime, it's good


aren't all isekai mcs virgins?


This. Same for me. I don't understand how this could be popular here, aside from the wish fulfillment aspect. The pre-isekai backstory stuff that shows up once in a while and rarely has meaningful bearing on the present story is okay. But, again it's merely window dressing background.
The story itself is nothing more than watching a blessed ubernormalfag Chad born in an ubernormalfag Chad family live an ubernormalfag Chad life.


yes, that is the point of escapist wish fulfillment fantasy shows. To let people (losers) self insert as the MC and enjoy pretending they have the most amazing normalfag life possible.

I've never been into anime and I don't know much about it. However, I decided to check out One Punch Man and I'm enjoying it a fair bit. I've never been able to stick to hobbies or find any passion or purpose in life. Is anime a worthwhile thing to get into? I'm beginning to see why so many people love it. The problem is, it just seems so dense. So much to learn, so many forums, so many niches. It's a little intimidating for a newcomer. Where do I begin? Should I learn Japanese? I've never been able to actually succeed at something like that, but maybe getting into anime would give me a reason too. Will anime improve my life and make me a better person? Will it make the bad things in life, like wageslaving and disease, more bearable?

I await your responses. Thank you, wizards.

Wizchan is the best -chan site, but Wapchan has a /cel/ board for retro anime.

Always dubbed. I want to look at the beautiful Japanimation, not at words on the bottom of the screen.


been watching dubbed for first few years but never regretted switching to subs.

and developed a belief that dub is for weaklings. anime is stupid, but this stupidity makes little sense until you hear how japanese seiyū dub it. after you do that you begin to experience some actual fun from the absurd you observe


Not really.
I don't like the anime "community" I just enjoy the medium/artform and do so mostly solo.
This is probably the only place I actually talk about anime online. Which isn't that often and usually just in the form of giving or asking for recommendations.

Same with animation and cartoons in general.

Chibi Maruko-Chan is very easy to watch, it's also cute and comfy.


So is Crayon Shinchan.

how should i avoid normalfags in japan. I don't want to talk to them. I know that Japan attracts a lot of normalfags but I don't want to interact with them: they will ruin my trip. do you have any idea what to do?

wiz i can relate so much it's unreal


damn it sucks…what did you do in japan? what year was it? what did you visit? what did you buy?


if all it took for you to drop a hobby is noticing that someone you dislike is showing an interest in it then your motives for liking it were dishonest and pathetically vain in the first place
but your entire post is probably a lie, if you're racist and think of japanese people as insects, and think of otaku culture as perverted, then why were you in Japan anyways? you come across as a false-flagging /pol/tard


I've wanted to travel to Japan for years and i have the money to do it but i honestly worry that this might be the case>>41314. Really doubt it's worth it.

I'm starting a thread about something that's good for the orbs, and that's old fashioned man-on-man violence. Big guns, robots, fast cars, and flying machines also welcome. Anti-masculine opinions NOTwelcome. In this thread, testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.

Anime about nice school succubi being saved from tentacles by the isekai'd NEET wiz are cool and wizardly [fact], and such fantasies are good for testosterone production, but we need something else to discuss while the pressure of a thousand shoujos weighs too heavily on our shoulders.

Using streaming services is low-t too.

>testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.


When I feel down I watch Conan the Barbarian. There is something fascinating about the analogy of a man overcoming overwhelming odds and forged steel. Hell, Conan inspired me to hit the gym 5 days a week for 6 months now…


it's funny, i enjoy the humor and the gags and all the bits. the comedy style rides the line between homoerotic versus juvenile fun. has gym/self improvement/stoicism/masculinity/honor themes. one episode early on is wiz as fuck where momo rejects the succubus and leaves with his bros. they dont make stuff like this tbh

Can't let this be posted without recommending Cromartie High. It's the same in concept but a much more sarcastic take on things that ends up getting pretty meaningful in some chapters. There's some feels that can resonate with guys who are either fired up or fed up. The anime adaption is great and even the dub has been hailed by the doritoist of neckbeards.


Oh man this is a good one. I didn't discover this one until a couple years ago. Criminally underrated show.


How much AoT fans worship Erwin amazes me


I miss old anime communities. Used to be many of them. Now almost all are gone or abandoned.

I saged on purpose and post was an answer to another, similar, post.


Mainstream companies like Google along with social media killed those communities along with the cultural shift of anime becoming an acceptable hobby. I used to be active in them in the 2000s. Back then it was a bunch of nerds talking about anime we pirated as well as any fun touhou games. The average normalfag with a social life wasn't playing the games we played or watching anime in 2006, he was going outside with his friends/girlfriend to do stuff. Crunchyshit killed most of the old anime streaming websites from the 2000s with chatrooms by making anime more accessible to mainstream audience and then capitalizing on it by charging people money. Now the free internet no longer exists really where everything is subscription based and of course anime has been normalized to the point that even Netflix has it.


What do you think goes through mind of a millennial normalfag who's jumped on the anime bandwagon? There's people watching I know who've never watched anime since school.


>Turn in to coomerbait
It's been that way since AT LEAST the mid 70s or 80s. I kind of see what you mean though. There's a difference between good storytelling with maybe a hot succubus with big tiddies and the whole anime just being fan service.


From what I understand those people like it ironically or only have a surface level interest. Then of course you have the trannies self-inserting as a female lead and spamming clips of that anime all over social media.

should I move this thread to /b/?


if you have to ask, then maybe you should step down


Whaaaaat? Moving such a high quality thread that also got posted on 4chad before here? https://boards.4channel.org/a/thread/242652916

Don't you dare!



Please do. This is barely anime or japan-related.

Hey everyone, i've recently got into a watching loop of pre-2000s anime movies. There's of course the well known Ghost in the Shell, or Akira for instance but there's plenty of them that are actually quite good. I know a lot of wiz here are into animes in general, so what would you suggest? I'm espescially looking for hidden pearls.

I liked "Stink Bomb" better.


You seem into cyberpunk like Patlabor 2, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade or Bubblegum Crisis


old stuff is generally pretty bad in my experience. Ghost in the shell was an exception.


I think this is highly overrated. They couldn't decide if they wanted to make it episodic or serialized and the hybrid format sucks. The main story itself is just quite boring and undeveloped. There are a few good episodes but taken as a whole it is mediocre.


You should probably kill yourself.

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

>They did all the same for Heidi too, which is another essential Wizard read/watch.
Heidi is even better than Anne imo

What a shame!

Best storyline, Best fights, Best charcters, Best villians, many people think that all the fights are the same and all the arcs are to similar when they're not, it sucks only with pacing and maybe it is long

terrible, bloated series, also we already have a one piece thread on /jp/


Its literally one of the most popular series in the world, and known as one of the Big 3. I don't like using ad homs usually, but are you genuinely stupid, OP?


>maybe it is long
its over 1000 episodes


Welp, gonna be away from Wizchan for a while:

One Piece is the bitcoin of anime..


Netflix seems to agree with your opinion as it's mining the heck out of it. Haha.
