File: 1590001725711.png (2.75 MB, 1508x2132, 29:41, Tower.of.God.full.2873874.png) ImgOps iqdb


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?

So it has to be made for Japan to be anime?


Anime is japanese animation. there is plenty of manga adapted from western novels. Maybe there should be another term for wholly japanese created works.

Manhwea and web toons are nearly always appealing to normies the art is always down badly in these comics as well and I dislike that they are being made into anime but most mass produced anime is lacking any substance anyway.

I would be more concerned about shitty CGI being used in anime OP.


words just get bastardized over time, any turn-based combat game could be called a jrpg, anything that looks like anime could be called anime, people will get what you're saying unless they are being pedantic


fuck you op for fucking triggering me on what a bluepilled cuck that sissy main character is

didnt stand out for me. shoujoshit just seems to appeal to pedos. there was that battle royale shoujo show where all of them were actually killing each other and i liked that a lot. the name eludes me right now.


You're probably thinking of Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku.

It was mediocre IMO.


If you can't perceive the artistic merit of Madoka Magica you frankly have zero taste whatsoever.

You don't have to like it but it's quite obviously a significant cultural contribution.


i like the art direction (which i think is far superior in most regards to keikaku) but not anything else really. for it to stand out to me, other things should also be better. if it were a bit edgier and explicit like keikaku, then i might consider it good. dont really give a shit if a million other people like or dislike something and i fail to see how that matters to personal taste. if that's how you define taste, i feel sorry for you.


Watching and "getting the message" of Madoka Magica turned an entire generation of innocent anime watching kids into future wizards.

Is this show any good? I watched the dubbed version as a kid, and I seemed to have remembered enjoying it.

Its literally just edgy Hamtaro.


A show is only as good as you perceive it to be - take a view and tell us about your thoughts


lol. No, it's not. Both shows just happen to have hamsters as characters.


This isn’t Ebichu….


what? kuromi's birthday is on halloween you black nigger. kuromi is the best character in the show and maybe the best character of all time, so i hope you aren't referring to some other succ in the show.
my melody is so mean to kuromi in the show that i genuinely don't understand how she has fans.

2chan? I dont speak japanese at all,0 knowledge. But I want to ask a couple of (sociology-related)questions to a rather large group of japanese-born hikkis and neets,etc.
where do I go to,how do I introduce myself there to avoid glowing? im interested in a "native hikki" views on buddhism-celibacy relationship,and also on general japanese paradise-depression contrast.

a lot of them speak English too.


What's with the amount of threads here that are like "I wanna speak with japanese people but I don't know shit about japanese".
In any case 2chan does have a hikikomori board, but people there tend to be very closed off and they will know if you're using an online translator to communicate with them. They will probably assume you're korean and tell you to fuck off.


Buddhism comes from India and spread to China via Central Asia. From there it spread to Japan ect. in East Asia.


There is a thread dedicated to chatting in English on 2chan's hikikomori board.
Maybe you can write there.

Is getting a dakimakura body pillow with an anime character on it sad? Pic related.

Aliexpress? why do you want the plain white cover? are you printing your waifu onto it yourself?

Do not fall for the sites that target ironic weeb normalfags.

Unless a specific design is unavailable and there is no option to then stick to aliexpress because the quality of the outer will be pretty much the same and all that money saved can go towards a better quality inner which is very important and overlooked.

Dakimakura musts
>never get peachskin material unless you want a rough textured cover because the tricot option will warm with your body heat - has much better image quality - much better for cuddling because material

>Your inner needs to be quality or at least 2.5kg so always get extra stuffing if getting generic inner and if going for premium inner you should order from JP (top of the line)

>you can NEVER spend enough money on dakimakura items


Just tired of hiding my printed cover away from my brother when washing it. I think I have gotten over my anime phase too.


Why do you need to hide the cover at all and I hope you are not washing it in a machine. I cnanot speak for you but I am over anime as well but still LOVE the aesthetic so decor is to stay.

Why are you ashamed of having an anime succubus on your cover? What is there to be ashamed of? My family know I have one and I hang mine out on the clothesline it does not bother me at all.


Nah, get those bootleg ones on Aliexpress. They're like $15 and you can cuddle the fuck out of it

Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless. The world of imageboards needs a place for niche otaku discussion, but alas, no site caters to such interest. What with the modern day youth on this site, there'd probably just be a bunch of Vtuber threads to take all the anime discussion's place. What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?

Japan itself takes great pride in anime and actively promotes it globally. You are free to discuss anything japan related here, the onus is on you to do so.


You're referring to the "Cool Japan" initiative and that sentiment only applies to things which foreigners find palatable.


2. yeah no shit they promote the things foreigners like to foreigners
2. They made the olympic mascots anime themed. The government actively funds anime production. It is clearly something they enjoy and wish to keep prevalent.


I wasn't disagreeing with you, in any case. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Really love Japanese culture especially now I'm in my 30s and appreciate life outside of Port addiction. Always been obsessed with Japanese kickboxing and martial arts. The best organisations were shootboxing, k-1 and pride. Since then I got distracted but want to start following again.

Read only 2 Japanese samurai books: book of 5 rings and the hagakure. Both essential reads. Especially hagakure. It's a collection of short histories and philosophies of the samurai from one area. The blood genealogy brings tears to my eyes everything I read that part. And the level of valour their philosophy led to is so refined to the point one part describes how you should try to get as far into the enemy line in battle because you'll look braver and everyone will respect you and also to always die with your head towards the enemy so there's no doubt you were moving forward.

And the stories giving examples of warriors deeds are awe inspiring. They see courage is the greatest sight humans can behold. Better than any beauty.

I want to study Shintoism and draw from it the core meanings to construct my own way of life and philosophy. It seems closest to pre Christian British religion so hopefully it fills the gaps.

A great source of interesting niche Japanese culture is Japanology on the NHK. They're 30min programs focused on 1 aspect of Japanese life from vending machines to mushrooms, to bonsai etc.

Also learning the language but only up to grade 2 kanji and such at the grammar. Need to quit internet again to spend more time reading and writing when I'm at my best.

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?

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


First good post this thread

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.


I don't know much but interested in Japanese films. I saw this late one night when I was in prison lol. I literally had a stinky abo who couldn't read as a cellmate. He'd watch CSI all afternoon and night till he fell asleep while I studied. Past midnight obscure world cinema would play sometimes on the sbs network here and I saw this film milocrorze. It's fucking weird but funny.

Whats your opinions of this kinda stuff?
Where the characters you are supposed to consider your waifus are unironically huge sluts?
(Pic related for example).


You don't "claim" a waifu as if she were the daughter of some guy you just decapitated in cold blood on the killing field. You CONNECT with her. You see her, and your heart tells you if she is or isn't the one. And if you heart tells you that a 2D who gets it on with other 2Ds is the one, then sure, you can look past her behavior and begin the marriage rituals.


You better hope the guy who dislikes tumblr doesn't see this (that guy is me) (i saw this).
Please explain who that character is and why you believe her to be a slut. I've watched over 10 anime and I don't recognize her.


She is Sayu from Hige wo Soru.
She is rich succubus with assholes parents who had a close friend that was often bullied. This friend commited suicide and her fucked up parents trying to blame Sayu for some reason. She couldnt endure it so after his brother offered her some money she took it and ran away to stay away from his family.
But she commited the mistake to totally disconnect from them, even the brother, going to another far away city and throwing away her phone. Eventually, she had no more money to rent a room, go backm or buying food.
So she started sleeping with random men to get a place to stay and food. About seven guys later -accoding her at least- she ends up meeting the MC who is the first guy to offer her a place to stay without wanting to fuck her, and so the "romance" begins.
So yeah, wasnt exageratting. She is a literal slut -a prostitute-.

Maybe this belongs more on /hob/ and if the mods agree I would hold no ill will for them for moving or deleting it but I recently got around to watching Serial Experiments Lain and wanted to find some other wizzards with good reccomendations for /dep/ anime. The ones of course given are succubi last tour and Lain. I would personally not count Watamote as it seems quite shallow and everything turns out fine in the end and whatnot. So what are some other anime, manga or light novels dealing with actual depression or schizophrenia and not in the mainstream boohoo am so sad way.

That's why I said I could relate to it. I used to be a security guard in my mid 20s. My job was from 1600-0000 in a hospital parking garage. I would just answer the gate calls on a cellphone to let all the doctors out of their shift, then I would get paid to fuck around like the protagonist and watch anime. Literally I just applied for a low end security company. I'm not sure if it's changed due to diversity quota bullshit, but 6 years ago when I was one they would hire anyone with a pulse.


>seems like foreigners who achieve to make it in japan are hated by their peers
Nar, i think Bahi JD is great. Ilya just sucks.

Don't know if it strictly fits your criteria but i finished reading the 'Karma' arc of Tezuka's phoenix saga and i really enjoyed it. If the idea of a guy who was fucked since day one, is continuously battered and bruised (sometimes deservedly) and only finds the strength to live by loosing himself in a craft he has a gift for but doesn't particularly like sounds your speed then check it out.

Spoilers ahead

I just finished himizu a couple days ago, gotta say none of the characters were that likeable apart from his freind Shozo who sacrificed a lot to help pay for Yuuichi's debt. God I fucking hated how he beat him up, but I guess it was a part of that whole 'humans are hypocritical', the ending was definitely memorable. Started reading crime and punishment, seemed pretty shallow to me, and kind of retarded. I didn't finish it (chapter 75 rn) but I will. Gotta say my favourite /dep/ manga would be higurashi, ressentiment, welcome to the nhk, and bokutachi ga yaramashita. Still looking for more depressing seinen shit to read, if anyone has any reccomendations please give me some

I fucking hate MAL for their treatment of digital-only written media. Anilist's been having better criteria for it and only now (after denying plethora of submissions FOR YEARS) they've decided to allow non-printed webtoons recently and still shit like pic related. Despite the fact of belonging to the notable franchise. It's part of one title and one-shots are allowed. WTF.

2 years and still some novel submissions are in queue.


MAL was always a site for normgroids and even groidnorms to earn coolkid points by showing how many anime they've watch.

Your watches should't be quantifiable to a number, but to a list of ways watching anime has bettered you as a person.

It's time to stop watching anime and instead start "watching" "anime".

Besides if you have problem with Website.com then go to Website.com/forums to complain.


There's no rules against discussions of sad current state of affairs. Culture in general doesn't change people and certainly doesn't make people better. Otherwise Hitler wouldn't succeed.


i use mal only for anime because it is synced into the thing i use to watch anime. i don't track manga, i used to just have bookmarks but over the years with pc changes idk where they are. i use mangaupdates to find manga though


Mal manga mods are terrible
I have submitted lots of stuff in anilist and they get it done in two weeks or two or four months at worst
