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?

I don't like making /dep/ressing threads, especially on hobbyist boards like /jp/, but this has been bugging me for a long time now. Japan has always been a hot spot for foreigners, but I've noticed a lot, and I mean A LOT of people trying to invade the country recently. And to make things worse, not only will they eventually flood the gene pool, but they're going to pressure Japanese society into changing their morals as well. Don't think they wont, the Japanese are a very insecure race, especially young people that idolize shitty American pop culture. https://twitter.com/obskyr/status/1274628006103838720.

I'm so scared I'm going to live to see Japan's death before I even get to visit. I wish I could become some sort of stoic wizard samurai and kill any foreigners who plot against the country and its people, spreading propaganda. It infuriates me that eventually SJWs will be normalized in Japan, and people will still deny the fact that Japan will change, saying shit like "nawwww that wont happen" until it does. It happened to the majority of Europe, it'll happen to Nippon too.

>Kadokawa had their manga refused by Google's and Apple's examination
>Potentially changing their manga for what considers appropriate or not
I hate this era we live in.


I think it's time for Google and Apple to face examination by the Chinese Public Administration committee. We need a new international standard to ensure the actions and policies of Google align with the values of the world's biggest market in the fight against extremism and exploitation.


One of the main reasons why manga and anime is so beloved outside of Japan is because is literally the opposite of mainstream western crap. And all the fans are aware of this.

Anyone who mess with this is going for one rude awakening.


So that's why new dragon maid has shit design?

Has anyone here been watching/reading Odd Taxi? It's already looking like AOTY despite it not even being summer yet, released on the same season as last year's AOTY, Gal to Kyouryuu. "Furry" anime becoming the new moe is wishful thinking, but I hope it happens. Animal worlds ensure more interesting stories in anime. I won't spoil too much since I'm sure not many people on wizardchan have seen it yet, but it's definitely a breath of fresh air with all the idiotic anime that airs these days. Give it a shot and discuss here; episode 7 just aired a few hours ago.

>The 2000s-early 2010s were all about the deconstruction of the founding father genres of anime.

Could you explain this in more detail? The thought sounds interesting but I don't see how this is so yet.


I mean the major things I can think of is stuff like Eva and madoka, which were all about taking genres that were usually lighthearted and action oriented and making them dark and serious. Also a lot of shows were trying to be more self aware of common anime tropes, and pointed them out matter of factly.


Yes. 3 struggling underground idols play an important role in the overarching plot. Like everyone in this show, their narrative purpose is much more sinister than you'd assume.

I feel sorry for anyone missing out on this show, dismissing it as "furshit". It's the best anime I've seen in six years


I could say the same about BEASTARS

Wouldn't that be crazy if one of them went crazy, got fired and then they just decided to spoil the original ending on the internet

Read the manga instead.

Do not get deceived OP, One Piece has not looked like that for over a decade.

This is a more realistic picture of how current-day One Piece looks like, it's been on a slow downturn since 2011, if you did not read it as a child or grow up with it then do not bother.

post all your favorite japan/anime artists. you can post hentai artists too since most of the good ones make hentai.

The first image is from 廃狼@新刊よろしく yotushiku something, I can only read the end of it. He is an artist on pixiv, I don't know if he posts his work anywhere else, but everything he posts is amazing.

The second picture is from an artist I found on pixiv called SPEC. I don't like most of his work, but this one is in a good style I wish I could see more.

The third image is made by Akyuun, another artist I found on pixiv. I like the colors, it looks dreamy.

I'll post more artists I like later. Please add whatever art you like.

So, I'm almost done downloading monogatari… is this show worth it or is it a big waste of my time?

This is so cringe,pretty much every single normie is able to get the gaymer references these days.


>Is this show worth it?
The first season? Sure. The 15 other seasons? No, not at all. This is a series based on novels that have had things like 20 entire pages in a row of pure dialogue, all devoted to talking about panty shots. There is only so long one can hide behind "irony" or "deconstruction" before people realize ironically doing something for 15 seasons is not very ironic anymore. Ignoring the fanservice and wasteful dialog time sinks, what is really at work in gatari? Characters seemed to be based on skimming Wikipedia articles on arbitrary DSM-5 conditions. Instead of actually dealing with any real issue or problem, usually you have some shounen fight instead. That or it's just simply allowed to continue, perhaps even promoted as a good or ok thing. Some of these issues or thoughts of the show could be interesting; but the show wastes so much time with sections worthless dialog and fanservice, so that not enough time is given for the actual themes or message. Sometimes the message is just bad or boring. Take Nisegatari for example, an entire season to state that "truly pretending to be something is the same as being something". Lets de-pseud that. Pretending is the same as being because: Actions are the same. Really one could just say "actions define the person", and it would comment the same as Nise. Yet that doesn't sound as interesting, despite being essential the same statement.


Is this translation accurate?


As far as I could tell the references were all translated faithfully. It’s the word play that usually gets changed because there’s seldom a direct English counterpart.


> is this show worth it or is it a big waste of my time


This is a thread to post anime character songs in.

>What's a character song, wizzie?


Moddess can move this to /music/ if she wants, but I'd wager that the /jp/ audience will be far more receptive to the ultra-moe songs I'm going to post ITT. Plus, it will probably get more contributors if it's on /jp/.

Gut's Theme then.


Go for it. There is room for everyone!

This is good. I need to sit down sometime and explore the entire GuP musical catalog.


知波単のラバさん ~ Homage of ドリフのラバさん

I like BC Freedom's marching song about… onions >>36751


This entire OST was good, but I think this was my favourite song. It has a bit of an intro, so if you lack patience just skip the first minute and a half.

you are the most pathetic narcissist I have ever seen


Sword Art Online and Scientific Index are not really good animes but I kind of enjoyed watching them for years.


every single one tbh ngl senpai.


Elfen lied is the most serene, haunting piece of media I have ever watched that also features urination and graphic dismemberment.


Elfen Lied is good, still a top after many years.
