Okay, I just finished the the series.
and I have to ask - is this a joke? Like a big decades long meme? I think this was the worst anime I've ever seen. A pseudo-philosophical LARP. Like does it actually have a point? A meaning? Beause I think I just witnessed someone's acid trip.

Unironically is the worldwide fame a LARP? Or is it like with the emperor's new clothes, where nobody mentions that he's actually naked?

What the acual fuck? Either I'm a brainlet retard or I'm the only sane person on earth - but what the fuck did I just watch?

It reminds me of those old french psychological art films… What a fucking waste of time…

I want to see that picture.

Eva was mainstream in the 90s. It's always been on the to watch list with TV airings during the same era as DBZ and Gundam wing on toonami.


>Eva was mainstream in the 90s.
Mainstream in the anime fandom. Not mainstream outside of it. I think that anon is relating how EVA would be considered a weird chinese cartoon for perverts 20 years ago and is now just another thing every normalfag has seen.


Pokemon started in 97, DBZ in 98. 20 years ago 2002 would be the peak of mainstream anime acceptance. Every teenager was watching DBZ and every kid was watching Pokemon. Stuff like Digimon, monster rancher and all that stuff had already peaked and been forgotten.

I remember pokemon chat rooms back in the day discussing Eva regularly. It was pretty well known and you could buy dubbed VHS from HMV. It aired on a Saturday morning anime block on the sci fi channel if you wanted to tune in. You could debate how mainstream the sci fi channel is but it was airing there so it was definitely beyond tape traders and napster style sharing


>Eva was mainstream in the 90s.
In the anime fandom, internet chatrooms and forums sure.


>20 years ago 2002 would be the peak of mainstream anime acceptanc
e. Every teenager was watching DBZ and every kid was watching Pokemon

Dude, that's not mainstream, that's just "Whatever the kids were into that aired on the major networks". I knew people that didn't even realize DBZ was anime when we watched it as kids.

I started watching the sword isekai anime.

Gangore S2, Jitsuryokusha, Bocchi, Pop team S2, Ken Deshita, Charat. I'll have to watch the original Charat before I watch this one though.
I watched Akiba Meido Sensou 2 days ago, it caught my attention the moment it was announced, since I like both Akihabara and maids, and it didn't disappoint me in the slightest. Also watched Pop Team's first ep too, I'm glad they didn't drop the ball but there's not much else I can say about it.
I'm only watching Bocchi and Ken because I liked the manga when I read them ages ago, same for Jitsuryokusha, except I read the WN for it too. I liked all of their source works, but if their anime is shit then I'll drop them.
Meido Sensou. Maybe the anime whose source work I read. There's also Isekai Ojisan from last season, it was very good. Although due to reasons you're better off not knowing episode 8 and onwards will only be released after 25th of november.


I tried the first episode of the new Gundam series and it drips with American politics. The main character is a total sperg to the point of being incredibly annoying and the first episode ends with 2 succubi engaged to be married. While one of them is like "but I'm a chick" and is called bumpkin, conservative and told it's normal. I've been a Gundam fan for near 30 years now and I've never seen anything as close to as badly written and repulsive as this is. It's utter garbage and it's being defended by the usual sorts. I used to always discuss new Gundam series as they aired on /m/. The boards been in steep decline but now you get banned for discussing the obvious politics in a Gundam series. There's a clear censorship of people who think the series is garbage over there. It's not even just bad in it's own right, there's apparently loads of important back story hidden away on websites and in short novels. Because who the fuck doesn't want 4 year olds using funnels to murder ace pilots, then a 15 year time skip where she turns up to a school full of her family's killers with the exact same mobile suit they killed them over? Just put all the bit in between in some novel no one can find in a few years and we'll go right to autistic sperg stuttering in a high school setting instead!

All I wanted was a war drama.. A serious war drama about a teenager stuck between 2 shades of grey and doing their best just to survive and keep everyone around them alive. This bullshit puts the nail in the coffin for anime for me. Gundam evolution had brought me back to mecha after a long break and if this is what one of the biggest and best anime franchises has become, I'll pass from here on out.


chainsaw man seems cool


Can you elaborate a bit more on why you disliked it without making spoilers of the previous series? I began Gundam not so long ago (completely from the beginning, and I very pro-Zeon). I saw that they recently announced that thing and the contrast was very laughable. Would be cool to read an oldfag rant about this (and the censorship thing in other sites if you want).

I thought it took place in iceland.


for like 4 episodes


That's just where the protagonist is from, but it's primarily about the Vikings invading the Isles. I hope the next part is adapted, but I recall it having a much different tone so I'm not sure how it will go with the anime audience if they expect more of the same.


Why? For what purpose? I've known desu since it was a meme and nothing said it was Irish. I never would have known if you hadn't made this post. Why does it make a single bit of difference to generic anime characters?

What is going on in this thread?


waifuism ≠ worshiping succubi, fictional female characters created by men are just idealizations and have almost nothing to do with what succubi are like in reality.


Very narrow topic threads tend to meander off course a bit from time to time but usually they do find their way back on topic.


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


How so?

So, we all know about that documentary where Hideaki Anno goes to his middle school and teaches animation for a few days. Question is, has anyone ever managed to track down *other* episodes from that documentary series?


would be interested to know how those children developed, what career paths they chose later in life. basically if his teaching had any impact, animation-wise

I've found myself watching, and this thread is as much of a confession as much as anything, kids shows. It started off due to the threads we've had about Cardcaptor Sakura and Doremy, but then I realized after watching them that I was feeling…oddly good and optimistic about the world in general. It's weird, because on the one hand I hate watching this stuff because, well, it's so fucking stupid and vapid, but on the other hand I love watching it because it's so goddam relaxing and healing to the soul. I find myself questioning whether this entertainment is purposefully made this way, to emotionally manipulate individuals past a certain age into a state of depression.

Uhm, thanks for reading my blogpost? Otherwise, I guess share some younger-demographic anime you might be watching?

Why is it that kids media is typically full of optimism, moralization, hope, and good endings; but "adult" media is typically full of depressing, demoralizing, nihilistic, and bad endings?


Skip to the last five or ten minutes of embed related to see what I mean.

Fuck "adult" media. It's poison.


Sam and Max is pretty fun.


Embedrel is why I watch kids shows now.


A bunch of episodes of the original series got subbed, they're pretty comfy.

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

Nice misgender, bigot.


Anyone else looking forward to the train wreak that will be the live action netflix adaptation>


I'm waiting for multiple trainwrecks.


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?

I like to draw myself with my waifu because I don't need to be with a 3d hoe, I know maybe it's a little cringe but it's a thousand times preferable to dealing with a real bitch.
¿Somebody else feel this way?

I hate the way I look even when I'm skinny, so I just made an OC that looks like how I'd want to look like but never can.
won't post anything though


I can't even imagine a waifu wanting me.

your OC guy looks cool


> Men who DON'T imagine themselves side-by-side with their self-professed waifu are the men who are cringe. You've proven your love for her through your art
No , you waifufags are cringe. I never imagined waifu and even that word and everything related to it is cringe.


romance, even this fictional fantasy waifu romance stuff, makes me cringe

but drawing it is kinda cool, at least you're creating something, producing things that can be experienced by others should they ever see it

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!
