Times ticking so I’m thinking about making my pilgrimage soon. What places would you recommend going to? I’d like to see a lot of mecha stuff but any recommendation would be fine.

Also, how much Japanese do i need to know to go? My vocabulary is limited to 3 or 4 words, so I thought about just paying someone here to come with me to translate but that’d suck if I payed all that then he ditched me so I’ll just tough it out and learn some

I could really use the knowledge from the posts of that one wizzie who biked through japan for a month or two and shared his pictures here.
Do you have any particular dates or months for a travel-time?


My Japan visit consisted of me and my Dad gorging ourselves at a bunch of restaurants in Shinjuku. Even the convenience stores have delicious food there.

I didn't know any Japanese. I just pointed at things on the menu.


this, i'd say it's pretty wizardly if anything


Japan seems cool and laid back


Was planning a trip soon but fucking bugmen ruined it for me.

which one did it better Eden or NGE? although they are not that similar really


I dunno I never saw eden.


Is Eden any good?


I rather watch NGE than any new anime that ever comes out


its top tier stuff no doubt about it


Goddamnit I just watched the entirety of Higashi No Eden because this thread intrigued me. I was wondering the whole way through why would you compare it to eva.
Well I got the wrong series but I enjoyed it regardless.

Classic old geimu but can be quite fun, r-right?
Image can be a screenshot or anything else really as long as it gives a clue. I'll start with something pretty easy, probably.

Is it good?


It's a cute SoL comedy, so average it's a bit strange.

Aye, gold star for you wiz. Figured I'd start off with one of the big classics since they tend to stick to mind even if someone may not have seen them in ages.
I've fucked up on several shows itt that I've actually seen before but almost completely forgotten. Especially it vexes me that I missed Stellvia up there.

How about this one?

what are the thoughts of wizs about kurenai?
truth to be told i only stayed because of the piano BG at first but before i could even realize it i got engaged by the characters and the slice of life atmosphere.
i mean theyre not ,like , extra deep complex characters strugiling in some sort of cyberpunk world, u can call em even stereotypes whose personalities hold no value at all and that wont be too much of a mistake but the animation is so full of energy and when the characters starts talking all at the same time makes it makes it feel more vivid, so u come to forget they are normfags whatsover.

maybe its just that the idea of kids getting hit in the head when they do something wrong and a bunch of people speaking ath the same time in a small room sounds appealing to me
but what does wiz thinks about simple shows like these?


note: i found it very sweet even with the murasikis yeling and attitude


It was kino as hell until the finale where they forcefully remind you this is an adaption of a light novel.
Up until that point though absolutely god tier SoL

This thread reminds me of why I will never visit Japan. Just like everywhere else on Earth it is slowly being transformed into a homogenized, grey Americanized hellhole. It would only make me sad to see it in person. I wish I lived 200 years ago, the world would have been a much more interesting place to travel in.

That's really only those bustlling pockets of modern capitalism known as "big cities"; it is to be expected. The country-side is still the country-side.


countrysides are usually still transformed. notice there's no trees on the flat areas on those pics. trees are the first things to go when ground is flat


Well they can't exactly grow their rice with trees in the way can they?


I'm sure there are many good examples of a more traditional Japan in the countryside, but still, the cities continue to expand and their influence permeates the entirety of the country. Only something like >>17966 would be worth visiting. I'm not deluded enough to think that North Korea is untouched by modernity, of course, though one reason I'd like to visit it is because it is not as hemmed into the globohomo capitalist web

Seen a ton of anime, only ever read a handful of manga but for the sake of contributing.

Ijou desu


I like Punpun.

I always fantasized about going to Japan and Hong Kong but beeing a poorfag I can obviously not afford it. Do any of you know some good tourism simulations (can be either video games or documentary movies)?

Here is a list of things I already watched/played:
>yakuza series of video games
>sleeping dogs
>various HK movies from the 80s - 10s
>doc about the suicide forest in japan
>doc about homeless people in japan
>doc about tokyo beeing destroyed and rebuild 2 times in a few decades

What I sometimes also do is just use Google street view and browse around. ARTE is a good tv station for doc movies (those of you in yurop might know this german/french coop station).

Virtual tourism via video is probably the safest way now. *Koff*

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.

It was pretty enjoyable to watch once but the main character gets annoying at times. I preferred the movie.


All I remember is that snail scene, gross. I think I enjoyed the series though


I watched the movie but never got around to watching the show.
On to the list it goes.


Thanks for making this thread. I was looking for something else to watch. I've started it and it's sucked me right in.


hope you enjoyed it Wiz, glad to have introduced you to it

This one here's Aldnoah.Zero. While many might argue that it's not really good, I actually managed to understand the anime on a deeper level. It has a lot of metaphors and says something a lot about Earth and the people living there. The main problem is that the characters are not so written well and being an anime with only 24 episodes, it kinda got rushed when it could have been a lot better if only they made more episodes of it. So, what mecha anime do you like, fellow apprentice wizards and wizards ?

That nose will never fly in current anime character design… Tis a pity.

Not really big on this genre tbh but Votoms and Patlabor had some qualities. Watching Zegapain currently, the robot fights are tame as hell, the post apocalyptic storyline intrigues a bit though.

>The best thing about Aldonah Zero was the autistic MC who could always figure out ways to defeat the overpowered enemy mechas.

Yes, that MC was the only thing that did the show for me.

Really liked Sidonia no Kishi, the 3D can be off-putting at first but I got used to it pretty quickly and it's a little better in the second season.
I especially appreciate the work done on the sound design which gives a great atmosphere during tense situations.

I also enjoyed the manga a lot.


images you can hear


What do you guys think of the shingeki no kyojin anime to the old seasons up to the new seasons?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


I really enjoy it. A lot of people probably don't like it because its a mainstream "normalfag" anime, but I like the moments of heroism it portrays and the whole dying for something greater than you. The studio also did a great job at adapting it, poor CG aside.


I found it to be uninteresting and unmemorable. I think i gave up early into season 2


At least, its OPs are kicking..


Haven't watched S3 but I have enjoyed watching it so far. Just have such a big backlog that it has taken awhile.

I also kinda stopped reading manga a few years ago so I haven't read the manga.


The first half of season three was boring in my mind, but the second half of it that aired a few months ago was really good I thought, except for some minor CGI shit.
