Konaka knows what's up, and normalfags that have redbubble lain bumper stickers hate him for it


Konaka always kind of sucked to be fair. His script for Hellsing was out of character, ruined Narutaru's adaptation and the last show he worked (GR) was awful


Lots of people seem to be mad that he's into 9/11 and covid conspiracies,but imo it makes a lot of sense for the guy who directed Lain to be into conspiracy stuff


I can't describe to you how little I care about the people behind the anime I enjoy on a individual level.


But you just did

Is there a more relatable /wiz/ character than Yonro? I haven't watched Shin-chan in years since it's a pain in the ass to watch outside of Japan and I'm pretty sure it shares the same fate as spongebob or south park, but is yonro still in modern episodes?

I only seen the version that aired on adult swim and ended rather abruptly.

Never got around to watching the sub because shows with triple digit episodes scare me off.


>Never got around to watching the sub because shows with triple digit episodes scare me off.
It's not like you need to watch them in order to understand what's happening. The dub that aired on [as] even aired out of order. Only the pre-early 2000s episodes ever get ENG translated though, so that's a bummer


I always wanted to watch this show why did nobody ever sub it


>why did nobody ever sub it
There were a bunch of subbed episodes up on kissanimu back in the day I think. Now BuriBuri is resubbing Shin-chan from episode 1-present, but at a very slow pace. They're up to episode 38 right now.


Slow but from what I hear the quality of the sub is good.
You know what they say.
There is fast, good, and cheap. You only get two.
They are doing the good and cheap thing, so it ain't gonna be quick.

>No Jojo thread

Let's fix that. I am currently watching part 4 and plan to watch part 5 afterwards and read the manga's. It is not as good as part 3 so far that I've watched but I've been told it gets better later on.

Using the retarded kiddie speak doesn't help.


No no, it's ok, he's just doing it "ironically" you see.


did anyone here manage to get through part 6?

Is this show any good at all? I've listened to the OP about one hundred times by now, is the show worth checking out? Check out the OP if you haven't already, it's awesome.


what anime




Angelic Layer


This voice actress that sung this was the same that used to play Yukino Miyazawa in Gainax's Kare Kano. It reminds me of the opening to Baki the Grappler.

Tell us your anime likes and dislikes or some sort of information about what you're looking for, or just examples of past shows you've enjoyed, and hopefully someone will recommend you a good show to watch.

>plot driven
>interesting fantasy or sci-fi worlds
>interesting social commentary or philosophical stuff
>hero archetypes
>good character arcs
>political intrigue
>fights where strategy is involved rather than just powering up with beams or determinationing your way through it

>romance (esp. pedo shit)
>boring slice of life shit where nothing outside the realm of normality happens (cute succubi doing cute things)
>high school setting and children mcs in general (not always I've just seen a lot of them and it's getting old especially as I myself am getting older)
>slow paced
>fan service that takes away from the plot and wastes time
>comedic relief/gags (situational comedy is fine but the japanese tend to do this annoying shit where they put on wonky music and people yell at each other and they call it comedy)
>style over substance (eg, lain, technolyze, FLCL)

higurashi is so good especially the gore scenes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-vQyPKUr4s


the only good thing about Blood C is the opening and ending imo


>Detective anime
I like detective work in anime but 90% of them fail because it involves supernatural. Detective Conan being the most obvious exception.


That show's writing was helariously bad and so was most of the show beyond the the gore.
Blood+ has better writing but is super melodramatic at times and the animation isn't as good as the shorter projects.
The only real reason I didn't like it all that much is because I was expecting it to be like Blood the last vampire when it came out, which it really isn't.

I can't take anyone who doesn't like anime seriously anymore. It happens to anybody else here?
I mean, if someone say that they don't like anime, or that they don't watch it, is practically given that they are normalgroids. So when someone says something it directly or indirectly, I inmediantly lost interest in whatever that person has to say.

Anime has been mainstream virtually since its inception. Definitely by the 2000s. Only difference is back then less people knew it as anime, it was just toonami or whatever to them. Literally everyone I knew in elementary school watched naruto, and dragon ball z, yugiho, etc. but when I tried to tell them what anime and manga was they would act confused.

The real distinction though is that normalfags only watch the most popular anime at the moment, whereas otakus will watch things like ecchi/harem anime that would disgust normalfags, or those with better taste will watch niche shows from the 80s/90s and such.


Which world are you living in were watching anime is some obscure underground thing?

Also, how does consuming a different type of media make you superior to normies? You could make that argument if you were reading philosophy books and non-fiction to expand your mind, but judging by your attached picture you seem to be the type that watches slice of life garbage.

You are coping, trying to feel superior to normies in any way you can, but going about in the most pathetic way possible.


Anime is too commercial for me, can't stand mindless "turn off your brain" fun and toy advertisments. There are a few good movies or ovas - whatever you want to call them, that are often based on stories taken from books, which are sometimes good.
The problem with anime stems from the fact that you need a large workforce to produce it, hence its commercial success is the number one priority. The Japanese obsession with tropes is also rather off-putting, not to mention the cutesy asian infantilism found in these works.


Anime like Chainsaw Man attract A LOT of normies even before airing.
Shingeki no Kyojin is also pretty popular among normies (notwithstanding the thinly veiled antisemitism, curiously enough).


Japanese nationalism is something that makes anime cringe these days. It's usually an off-beat quip like "Wow Japan is amazing!" said by some cute stinkyubus, and it ruins the whole series for me.

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 don't like making /dep/ressing threads, especially on hobbyist boards like /jp/, but this has been bugging me for a long time now. Japan has always been a hot spot for foreigners, but I've noticed a lot, and I mean A LOT of people trying to invade the country recently. And to make things worse, not only will they eventually flood the gene pool, but they're going to pressure Japanese society into changing their morals as well. Don't think they wont, the Japanese are a very insecure race, especially young people that idolize shitty American pop culture. https://twitter.com/obskyr/status/1274628006103838720.

I'm so scared I'm going to live to see Japan's death before I even get to visit. I wish I could become some sort of stoic wizard samurai and kill any foreigners who plot against the country and its people, spreading propaganda. It infuriates me that eventually SJWs will be normalized in Japan, and people will still deny the fact that Japan will change, saying shit like "nawwww that wont happen" until it does. It happened to the majority of Europe, it'll happen to Nippon too.

>Kadokawa had their manga refused by Google's and Apple's examination
>Potentially changing their manga for what considers appropriate or not
I hate this era we live in.


I think it's time for Google and Apple to face examination by the Chinese Public Administration committee. We need a new international standard to ensure the actions and policies of Google align with the values of the world's biggest market in the fight against extremism and exploitation.


One of the main reasons why manga and anime is so beloved outside of Japan is because is literally the opposite of mainstream western crap. And all the fans are aware of this.

Anyone who mess with this is going for one rude awakening.


So that's why new dragon maid has shit design?

Hey. What character I like from anime?
I like Scar from FMA and FMA B. Why? Because he was mysterious and his country was treated poorly when there was a war.
But after war was over he came after alchemists, because he wanted revenge so much.

That impressed me.

Are there any character who wanted revenge in anime? Give me examples of them.

>I had no idea about it until X YouTubewhore made a video about it.


>Scar as a vengeful character
You know how his arc ends, right? I wish more anime let vengeful characters be vengeful, rather than see it as an affliction that needs to be cured.


Most vengeance arcs leave the character inert once they get vengeance unless they get additional character development.
Since most people enjoy well written character development of interesting characters that is the better path if you want to keep that character around in a long form narrative.

A simpler vengeance motivated character works best in shorter and more action focused narratives where there lack of depth isn't as much of a issue.


Togame from katanagatari.


Kind of a weird case that one.

Has anyone here been watching/reading Odd Taxi? It's already looking like AOTY despite it not even being summer yet, released on the same season as last year's AOTY, Gal to Kyouryuu. "Furry" anime becoming the new moe is wishful thinking, but I hope it happens. Animal worlds ensure more interesting stories in anime. I won't spoil too much since I'm sure not many people on wizardchan have seen it yet, but it's definitely a breath of fresh air with all the idiotic anime that airs these days. Give it a shot and discuss here; episode 7 just aired a few hours ago.

>The 2000s-early 2010s were all about the deconstruction of the founding father genres of anime.

Could you explain this in more detail? The thought sounds interesting but I don't see how this is so yet.


I mean the major things I can think of is stuff like Eva and madoka, which were all about taking genres that were usually lighthearted and action oriented and making them dark and serious. Also a lot of shows were trying to be more self aware of common anime tropes, and pointed them out matter of factly.


Yes. 3 struggling underground idols play an important role in the overarching plot. Like everyone in this show, their narrative purpose is much more sinister than you'd assume.

I feel sorry for anyone missing out on this show, dismissing it as "furshit". It's the best anime I've seen in six years


I could say the same about BEASTARS
