Have you noted that there are more and more people with low power level in anime community than ever? I mean, even here almost every recent thread is filled with people who don't know what they're talking about, let alone can give some deep insight in any matter.

People who can't say anything very interesting about the plot of an anime, nor discuss something about it for more than 2 minutes because he doesn't know what he is talking about. You would expect this to be the case in normalgroid sites, that's a given, but I'm seeing this even in places where there are supposed to be people who are at least interested in anime and otaku culture. Honestly is very boring that there are no people who like to know about their favorite things.

Netflix anime fans are conditioned to excuse horrible CGI in fact fuck Netflix for animating good manga into unwatchable shit


I can't imagine watching 200 anime then wanting to watch 200 more.


Is there really that much of a difference between younger and older anime fans?


youngfags are sort of privileged and entitled and take a lot of shit for granted
for example someone only 5 years younger than me can start watching any anime, any time, any where which is something oldfags couldn't really experience
youngfags get to pick and choose what to watch instead of only having vhs or airing TV anime available at early morning outside of japan
this will in turn lead them to eventually see more anime since they can consume almost infinitely up to 2000 titles in 5 years time while ill still be here with my 500 titles over 20 years


What do you mean exactly? Do you want to talk about the history of anime, directors animators and all that stuff or are you saying that people just don't watch much anime anymore and just watch whatever is popular? I would like to talk about anime history and all that but nowadays I can't even remember shit I did 5 hours ago.

You got that right. I like action succubi or generally 2D succs who can fight. I think it is because 3D succs are sooo boring and dull.

Please recommend me good underrated anime. I miss the years past where i would binge on anime. I really want to find those hidden gems again. The ones that aren't too popular to have an ugly mainstream appeal, but also not too unknown by being too shitty. I really like realistic anime with good characters, no magic shit please.
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


It isn't really realistic or anything but I recently watched Kubukiri Cycle and liked it. I'd recommend it if you haven't already seen it.


I forgot about that spinoff. Much different in tone to Kaiji, but still decent.


Just wondering, did the screencaps I posted inspire you to watch it? Or did you have a different reason? It's kind of an obscure show, so I'm curious about what motivated you to choose it.

Have you seen Monogatari? If so, how did it compare?


Haibane Renmei, very comfy.


I found out about it through a youtube video about the monogatari series.

I like monogatari more than the kubukiri cycle but it was pretty good as well.

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?

your best bet for obscure japanese cinema is using avistaz.to, its a private torrent site and so far I have found everything I wanted.
Bear in mind however that to get an invite you need to make a discord and watch their server for when they the announce that they opened registration, but its worth it because you can find pretty much everything there.


Crazy movie Hiroku the Goblin. Shinya Tsukamoto directed good movies besides the Tetsuo trilogy

I saw an obscure film called Village of Doom 1983.
It's about the Tsuyama massacre where a young man with TB murdered almost his entire village over the course of a single night. He was ostracized by succubi for having TB.
It's a great film. I like how it takes a very neutral view of the protagonist. It doesn't artificially portray him as a scumbag as he transforms from a nice guy into someone who just snaps.
The last 30 minutes are great. It's frantic and unrelenting as he runs through the town murdering everyone with his shotgun and katana with sadistic glee. There's a lot of first person camera shots too.
Unfortunately the only place I was able to find it was avistaz. It's a great tracker and I got into it pretty easily recently by hanging around on their invite discord server until they randomly did a sign up one day. I love old japanese films so it was well worth it for me. I highly recommend it for anyone interested.


I got in and kicked out due to inactivity few years ago. I'm such a fucking idiot.

It seems to me that many NEET wizzies do nothing but watch anime all day. That would be tens of episodes a day. How do you guys not run out of stuff to watch? Where do you find new shows?

Streaming services


Fucking hilarious, well done fellow p0ster, good joke it made me laugh.


It was not a joke


Crunchyroll rips money from anime studios to fund its own political cartoon endeavors. Crunchyroll hires sexual predators. Crunchyroll copyright claims media it does not own the rights to. Crunchyroll gets people who are outspoken against anime and Japanese culture to localize series. Crunchyroll purchases smaller, reputable studios and then fires all employee, falsifying a monopoly.

Anyone who used Crunchyroll can be safely assumed to dislike anime and manga.

This thread is for discussion of anime you think you're missing out on. Recently, I've been trying to get into this new Madhouse original called "Sonny Boy". I saw some familiar staff and thought the show looked cool. When I got into it, the show already ran five or six episodes in. Now it's almost finished airing. I thought the first episode was cool, and I liked the second episode as well, but not as much as the first one. By the third episode I just wanted to smash my head against the wall. The characters all have the same snarky, lifeless, pseudo intellectual attitude. They all act like typical sheltered Tokyo brats. Another thing that irks me is the amount of uncreative still scenes there are. It makes the episodes drag for so long, and it's like their only purpose is to save money for a classic "super cool key animator moment" that lasts 10 seconds or less. Normally I know when to stop, but judging by the discussion of the show I've seen online, it looks like the show gets better as it goes on. So I either suffer through more episodes with no pay off, or I agonize through a bunch of schlock just for that one "golden" episode. I regret not watching Sonny Boy weekly. Anime is so 'off' these days, that I can't imagine keeping up with shows without having to wait a week in between.

Rather the opposite. I like slow-paced anime e.g mushishi. I love slow art films like ingmar bergman and tarkovsky. Generic ADHD shonen dont stimulate me though


Favourite Bergman film? I’ve been meaning to watch his stuff. Saw a bit of Fanny & Alexander with my mother over Christmas but that’s about it.


File: 1649515707344.jpg (72.02 KB, 640x800, 4:5, jbh5oxb21jp71.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

No the same wiz, but I personally love Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal. They are both about death, aging, Nothingness and existentialism, Bergman was really obsessed with these topics.


It's "coomers" too. Inevitably it always goes that way since people running out of things to speculate, so they opt for the lowest brow of discussion which makes them feel good. Mainly fawning over anime succubi and posting ecchi/porn or coming up with weird borderline erpish scenarios. It's why I couldn't stand browsing /a/ anymore because every discussion inevitably turns sexual and I just don't care for it.


Thanks wiz, I’ll check these out.
Slightly off topic, but philosophy and study of death is becoming intriguing once again.

My brain is too fucked to pull two intelligible sentences together, so pardon me if I don't make any sense.

As there are just too many manga, it is a huge pain to dig into this pile to find good ones to read. So why don't we share each other great manga, and good mangaka.

I'd recommend Fumetsu no Anata e (To You, the Immortal), pic related.

Story of some sort of immortal being of the shape of a sphere, has the ability to imitate object and being in his surrounding. It bit by bit, start to experience the world, pain, hardship, death, not having any idea of anything of who it is, and slowly develop of conscience. It's set in a fantasy world, where the clothing and customs are loosely inspired by early Japan, and maybe the Ainu.

Beautiful and detailed artstyle, incidentally the author of this manga is Ooima Yoshitoki which can explain why it reminds me of Koe no Katachi (same author after all).

Alright I'll posting about the stuff I'm reading, /jp/ needs an more active manga thread.

There's a fair amount of titles running on Gangan right now talking about otaku. Yankee Shota to Otaku Oneesan is, in my opinion, the best of the bunch right now. This is the tale of a fujoshi and shotacon fan called Kazuko and her neighbor, Ryuou, a 3D shota (from her perspective) that starts to follow her around for reasons she doesn't understand.

It's a very light and fun comedy and Kazuko in particular is quite a hilarious character with her mannerisms and excessive inhibitions. There's a balance here between the funny moments that centers around the interactions between the main characters, and the more drama-like aspects of the story, centered around Ryuou relationship with his parents. They're good people but maybe not the best parents in the world.

If you like to watch socially inept succubi forced into social interactions, then you'll certainly enjoy this title. What makes this interesting is how likeable Kazuko can be without trying too hard. There aren't any absurd moments purely for comedy (like with Watamote), her reactions seem more genuine and this adds a certain tenderness to it that really gives this title a peculiar charm.

It's funny, I read a few chapter of this last year, really liked it and intended to read all of it but for whatever reason I completely forgot it ever existed until I saw it's available at Piccoma by accident. It's a lighthearted comedy about a pair of hikineet siblings hanging around the house. Looks like the stuff I would like.

Mr. Fujiko passed at the age of 88 a couple of days ago. Doraemon was the first manga I read from beginning to end in Japanese. Here's a post to celebrate his memory. I'll be reading Dora for the next couple of days.


Rip. Glad he passed after he finished his project, many mangaka these days don't have that under their belt by the time they expire. Doraemon is definitely a legacy to behold. It's weird, I see Doraemon everywhere in Japanese art and culture, and even here in the west (It's a it's a JDM icon). Almost as much as Sanrio and Nintendo icons. Yet I have absolutely no idea what it's about, the names of the characters, or the extent it was released. The information just never organically landed in my peripheral and it doesn't look interesting to me enough to look it up.


File: 1650805558533.png (424.3 KB, 438x630, 73:105, itai.png) ImgOps iqdb

To follow the life of Itai Shiori is like watching a tiny and precious trainwreck. It gets personal very quickly, too, because you’ll care about her from page one. Itai wants a boyfriend but she doesn’t quite know how to go about it and is not the best at reading social situations. And so comedic yet painful events follow.

The way the story unfolds is really clever in this one. Most of the text is not dialogue, but narration, like we’re watching Itai’s with the narrator and she too often will get flabbergasted about her actions. This really puts you in a position of wanting to help Itai. A lot. But you can’t. You’re forced to watch as she moves along being silly and living her painful comedy day by day.

A very engaging narrative and a very interesting read. If you enjoy awkward female protagonists and painful laughter, this title has you covered. The art is simple but it has a very unique charm I don’t quite remember seeing anywhere else. The author has a way of coming up with excellent facial expressions for the characters and even though it’s a simple, straightforward way of drawing the characters, there’s an attention to detail to the expressions that really adds a very special quality to them, it’s hard to put my finger on it. I guess you’ll have to read it to find out by yourself.

What do you speculate the next trend in anime will be?
We had moe and it seems as if iseaki is still in full force but waning and I cannot imagine what the next trend will be so I am curious what you wizards speculate.

I do not think Moe will go away we will always have cute succubi doing cute things but maybe it will be different I think perhaps the art style will change and sadly feel that loli stuff may become rarer as more and more normalfags watch anime to the point that MAL reviews on loli anime is critical of the fact there is a loli in it featured with some fan service.

I am secretly hoping that more depressing anime gets made and even some anime that is entirely in black and white like a manga I love the visuals in anime but manga can really look so much better for some stories.

Sorry for the brainfart

evafags are pretentious as fuck


They'll hop onto the Chainsaw Man anime when it comes out, that show will be massive


>no one even mentioned Eva
Show me on the doll where evangelion touched you


>points to doll's wallet and cries


God please don't post this. I can't stand her. Honestly, I could barely tolerate it when vtubers were strictly Japanese. I could ignore it as some off-branch weeb shit, albeit not one that appealed to me at all because I knew these were just succubi pretending. It's hard to separate the "character" from the "person" in that case. But now we have these western whores doing the same thing, including literal whores like the succubi at Vshoujo where one has even gone so far as to set up an Onlyfans for herselfs. Which has become one of the most popular Onlyfans going. Almost none of them even try to pretend that they're playing a character like many of the Jap vtubers do. It reeks of normalfaggotry and is just another example of them infesting the medium. Unfortunately I don't think this is a "fad" at all. Streaming isn't going anywhere anytime soon and neither will vtubers as "anime" only grows more and more popular overseas.

Satou would about 37 if we base it around the time the original Welcome to the NHK book was published. If they made another book or series that revisited his life in the present day what do you think it would be about?

I'd crowdfund


Oh okay my bad, I've only seen the anime and it was implied but not stated.


Didn't a new book come out last year or something? Anyone read it and have an opinion?


I could never relate to it because I couldn't possibly afford even a tiny 2 room apartment where I live as a NEET. And if I somehow got a security guard or any minimum wage job? Still couldn't afford it. In fact the only place I could afford would be renting out a single room in a house-share and I don't think I need to explain why that's not attractive. Satou's life seems like such a luxury by comparison.
