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


no, watch ebichu instead

no, watch Onegai, My Melody instead.
the cutest succubus character in the world from it just celebrated her birthday recently.


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.

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.

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


>unpopular in Japan
Really? I thought only popular tv anime got movies. It could explain while the movie changed so much of the characters and story though. I disliked the movie as it watered-down the character design (no distinct noses) and made the personalities a caricature of the tv counterparts. The movie OST especially Black Escaflowne was lit though.


It was the popularity the show had outside of Japan that led to the production of the movie funnily enough. Popular enough in western countries like in Germany for example


Why did they totally change the OP music?


I'm not sure if this is my favorite mecha or not. The number of anime and things that I enjoy in general seems to be decreasing so who knows if I would even still like this show if I watched it again.

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?


The board would die. There aren't enough people in the world, let alone on this board, that are interested in Japanese culture outside of anime and manga. I would love to be proven wrong though. I adore Japanese film, literature, and cuisine so I would be very welcoming of such a change.


>What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?
I think being so openly cynical and critical of the quality on the content and userbase of the very board you're posting on is rude. If you want to discuss Japanese culture, that's swell and well, but you don't also have to speak ill of the guys who use this board in the very OP.
>having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless.
Pointless? No. Learn patience. Many of us have been getting by fine with discussions taking place over the course of years. An antiquated thread isn't just a conversation, it is memory. A time capsule of what anime was years ago, what has changed since, and how we who have taken place in the discussion have changed. To be able to share your opinion on a subject many hold sentimental feelings for, and then to also reflect on the feelings you had about the same things years prior is an incredible luxury you can't find anywhere else besides oldschool forums. We're slow because that's how we like it.

>Guys i like cheeseburgers but we should put them off the menu, because everybody is eating them and i don't like that


Who are you quoting frend?


I don't see the point, the board being slow is kind of a positive thing since it means that you can make threads about whatever Japanese topic you want and they won't get bumped off by people spamming vtubers and idols within a day like on 4chad /jp/. We've had threads on Japanese internet, learning the language, cars, music etc. and some are still up despite being several years old. If you want to discuss something Japanese besides anime just make a new thread for it.

That was what I took away too. I didn't really care about the characters and couldn't follow the story at all. I took away the atmostphere. The messages were annoying the hell out of me. Didn't read them. I liked the ending


>The messages were annoying the hell out of me. Didn't read them
What the hell, read them you fool they are important. Also the story isn't continuous, so it might require a rewatch to get everything from it. The act is bad, but the story is pretty dam good in my opinion.


I'll rewatch it when I feel like I'm in the mood for it, I guess

You learned that from anime?


I keep two backups of his entire website just in case the archives of it go under. I was going to translate the entire thing and host it on neocities but it turned out I'm really fucking lazy. There's a massive amount of pictures I would have to organize. oh well

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.

>Ctrl+F catalog
>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.

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.
