What did you guys take away from this show? Did it help the way you feel about your situation, or did it cause more despair?
48 posts and 9 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


I am very much a male in a male body since birth but I relate to Misaki and feel I have similar problems as her and really misaki is literally me.

Misaki only desires to help someone else and live through them I cannot tell you how much I am also like that.

The hate Misaki gets is unfair she has a lot of problems even more than satou who is only socially anxious and lazy.

Reminder that the MC was a hikikomori in the japanese way and not as would be common in the west.

>mental health issues

He was a hikikomori more due to his feeling of failing and withdrew there were no scenes explicitly showing he had an inability to go outside at all.

Miaski self harms and has tried to kill herself while living with abusive family and she wanted a friend she was not a typical succubus.

Reminder that the MC was very crab like and thought lewdly of the MC even falling in love with another hikikomori man in the vidya arc.
Also what the fuck was the vidya MMO arc it was shit I feel strongly that the anime adaption should have had at least 12 episodes per arc or at least not with the additional arc.

The only improvement the anime did as an adaption is clean up the mess of the manga storyline and in some ways the LN itself.

In the LN a lot of different stuff happens including some very confusing scenes it felt like it could have been more fleshed out also reminder that the adaptions are very much toned down because the MC becomes a lolicon in the LN.
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


The anime was actually toned down hard compared to the novel, in the novel Satou uses actual drugs and it seems way more desperate at times when in the anime it was mostly played by laughs, and Yamazaki while being 2D obsessed too is a full blown pedophile actually giving Child Porn (not anime loli but real 3D CP) to Satou and satou downloading tons of CP from the internet, this was back in 2003 or so, today the novel wouldn't be published, actually the editorial went bankrupt.

There are more differences, the novel is very different at times, it's sometimes weird because of that, Hitomi was an afterthought in the novel with a single paragraph mentioning her, I don't even remember if the author named her, and the online game and multilevel sales shit doesn't exist in the novel.

The anime is quite entertaining, I liked the online game arc and Yamazaki is more likeable in the anime too, he's stupid a hypocrite traitor bastard that abandons 2D for 3DPD though.

I wonder how satou would be in 2021, probably he would be a normalfag like everyone else, too bad that no one will ever make a sequel.


I'm sorry for the many mistakes I made in this post, I'm tired and phoneposting rn.


The novel is not really that good though, it gets confusing and boring at times, only the ocassional otaku references save it when it gets bad, the anime on the other hand is very entertaining.

The ending makes even less sense in the novel.


100 the amnag and anime toned it down a lot and it really does get confusing some times like when Satou takes a bunch of DMT and we have a chapter or two of him tripping balls but it was ok.
Satou even in the book never seemed to be very near the edge of suicide it could have been much more bleak for my liking.

I felt like the anime,novel,manga had some serious flaws and we often overlook them or at least appear to because it is one of the only media about being a hikikomori most of us have consumed.

The anime was a good watch the gaming arc was fun the MLM arc was a bit of a mess and plain stupid if you aks me.
The anime is so much more of a mess I did not even finish it to be honest I read a great deal of it though.

I wish we had a more well polished bleak hikikomori book I would like Inino Asino to make a manga about this topic he can actually do well with something like this but seems he is busy doing his cutesy style and from what I read he may have moved on from bleak depressing manga.

A thread for sharing independently animated shorts, music videos, and experimental films from Japan. Any related thoughts or news are welcome.

I used to be really into Taku Furukawa shorts when I first started getting into independent japanese animation, also Ryu Katou was one of my favorites as well


>succubus doing super peppy moves with a deadpan face
ah yes, that's the stuff


Reincarnation Garden「りんね園」3:46 04-03-2016
Animation by Ayumi Nagaki「永木歩美」music by Naomi Amano「天野直美」

Ryu Katou's later stuff for NHK reminds me of a guy like Cezanne, it's really bright and cheerful


Salmon-chan「シャケちゃん」5:55 10-03-2012
Animation by CreativeLab
Comedy where Salmon-chan attempts to be eaten

A couple of the animators, Rina Iwamoto and Kyohei Konishi, later went to work on anime like Nisekoi and succubi und Panzer.

Why is Tower of God considered an anime when it is adapted from a manhwa? If it is solely because a Japanese studio did it then why isn't the same logic applied to Cannon Busters? So basically anyone with money can just pay a studio to adapt their source material and it will be "anime"? Seems like a bad precedent we are setting. How does Japan feel about this?

Sounds like you're onto something OP. You should start a change.org petition to remove TOG from anime listing sites.


I do know that the comic was/is one of the most popular manhwa I can think of so that is probably where a lot of hype is coming from.


What is "anime" ?
Is it made by Jap but financed by US? Then the 80's TRANSFOMERS count and so does the ones exclusive to Netflix.
Does it have to be made by Jap exclusively? Then most current anime don't count because the grunt-work (like in-between frames) is done by Chinese/S.Koreans.


squint your eyes until everything is blurry
question: does it look somewhat like anime
if yes: it's anime (for 99% of people)


The heads of every department have to japanese, in japanese companies, that live in and were raised in japan. Outsourcing grunt work to your ex-colony is different from having a person from a different culture in a major position.

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.

holy shit this cartoon was dark.


I had no idea about it until tfm made a video about it.
Gave it a watch then and yes indeed it both fits the bill for this thread and is a surprisingly good watch that is darker then it's art style initially lets on.

>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.

I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.

>Naruto is good as long as you skip the filler. Those jutsus are just so damn cool. How can you not like that shit?
Okay okay, there are lots of really good action scenes, but I admittedly don't enjoy action anything. I like tight, focused stories.


Happy sugar life perhaps?

Sleepy Princess in the Demon King's Castle.

Serious Recommendation: Saint Seiya. It's 1980s old-school but the fight scenes are brutal.

Early Japanese web culture would not have been the same if it wasn't for flash. Since flash is going to lose all browser support in 2021, why not look back at some Japanese flash content?
Keep in mind this thread isn't for moping about flash dying or how the internet sucks now, it's for posting old flash movies and games that have Japanese origin.

Today's the day…


Nothing changes after today. It'll be years before alterations to browser code require user-made fixes to play flash, and the standalone player is pretty much bug-free.


Confirmed, I can embed and play flash files in my browser still I'm a waterfox user, don't know how chrome or firefox users are holding up

Granted, after Crunchyroll made the mistake they made, they apologized and cowered with their tail between their legs. So we may have more of a fighting chance than we did in GamerGate.

>A lot of them are not "teehee I'm a weeb and I buy figurines xD" but actual sick people with mental problems.
And what is the issue?
Where do you think you are newfaggot

>Moe deserves being attacked,it's the #1 cause of the massive drop in quality in anime.

He hates non non byori because he is a shoentard or psudeointellectual who needs to be watching "deep" meme note type animes.
Moe done right is comfy shit you just relax to and maybe fall asleep to.
If I want something truly engaging I will read philosophy do not shit on my comfy time faggot.
>not complaining about the billon iseaki titles

> it just makes everything seem so soulless and uninteresting to me and makes it feel like every page looks the same.

Managa is better IMO for story and pretty much everything but relax chill shows.
because I like to lay back and watch laid back camp instead of read that type of manga although moe manga is decent like non non byori.
>Ive made tons of threads in the past about how being an otaku is mainstream and trendy but no one believed me.
I never vall myself a weeb seriously.

Unlike the native tribes we won't even be remembered in history, we're far too scattered and silent for that. Only internet scholars might know we existed.


I know what you mean. Normies idolize the hikki lifestyle and just want to sit on their ass consuming shit non-stop like the nerds they were making fun of during 80's-2000's


Japan and anime itself is shifting into SJW mindset, don't blame it just on Netflix subtitles and normalfags


I can understand the more liberal cities and prefectures shifting, but aside from a very few recent examples (related to Netflix), I haven't seen much of a shift in anime over there.

Any animes similar to welcome to the NHK?
It doesn't have to revolve around being a hikikomori, but i liked the theme of a succubus wanting to save a boy

Escaflowne thread?

Went into this blind after looking to explore the Mecha genre separate from Gundam. I was pleasantly surprised with the solid pacing and unique presentation, it's a great show to immerse yourself in, great for escapism.

>download this because it looks pretty nice
>it's dubbed
My own fault for not checking



I can't decide whether or not this is my favorite mecha series. Underrated series that never gets the praise it deserves.


Not really underrated since it was praised back then but forgotten among new audiences. The series was really unpopular in Japan though
