Unfortunately, I've lost all interest in anime, even the ones i used to like, due to the ammount of normalfags watching it and how cringe they are. Please reccomend me some good animes (especially mecha, slice of life or isekai) that are out of the reach of normalfags

put the show off for so long, but it was better than expected, the movie surprised me the most, i was captivated the whole time, nice relaxing scenery, comprehensible but not boring story, and fast paced action

Just don't watch the Das Finale OVAs until 2027.


Fate extra is so good despite being on netflix though, it has become one of my favorites


Add angels of death and shiki to that list and it's masterful

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

This feels as painful to read as Ready Player One, to be honest.
I hope the anime is better.


yeah. whatever
then It's just shit boring annoying conversations


Idk I can see how referential humor is cringe, and pretentious. And I don't find it funny either.
But to be honest I don't mind. That's the thing I like about Nisio Isin. He is so immersed in different media to the point where he thinks in them. Although it is weaker during most conversation it shines with the actual arcs. Arcs which take different media and use them to analyze characters.
Yeah I agree during dialogues most of the time they are quite useless (only occasionally funny), but it's not enough for me to hate Nisio Isin's work, and these references are advantageous during most arcs. (some arcs are retarded).


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.

Has anyone experience in cutting out anime from your life? I'm thinking of doing a NoAnime September and seeing how it will turn out.

Anime has consume my life and I keep buying anime merchandise, watch anime all day, and have turned my room into an anime haven. It made me fap all the time to anime succubi and I am always weak and tired now, and when I am I watch some anime to feel happy - it is like a drug.

Even after finishing anime it doesn't stop for me as I go on gelbooru and look up pictures of anime characters I like.

So does anyone have experience quitting anime or cutting down on this habit?

oh don't worry, if you really like anime you will watched pretty much everything worth seeing, years later you will realize how much of your life were wasted on things you thought were important such as anime. All those figures and merch that once were joy is now a dull knife in your heart.

Which part are you watching? i'd recommend you start and finish the movies and the OVA, they are more straightforwards and consistent compare to episodic series


I've been a Lupin fan for a long time. Which series is your favorite. Red Jacket is probably it for me.


Lupin the 3DCG


I always wanted to read the original manga, a decade passes and I find out that Monkey Punch is dead


Does Lupin stalk schoolgirls?

Bros I need some help. I downloaded this one anime (with english subs) and I can't figure out how to use the english subs. There is a file named: subs.rar in the the file directory but I have tried to paste them out of it (they're called [insert episode name here].ass) and when I use my video player, it has an option (in the subtitle settings) to find a subtitle file so I can play the video with subs. Yet, when I select the file directory, it just says: no subtitle files found. What do I do? This anime pretty high quality and it's very hard to find a torrent(s) of it (with all the seasons) that are still seeded on utorrent. I honestly don't know what to do and I'm stuck

Welp, I just deleted the anime for a different torrent (this time with english subs in the video files themselves). But, the audio isn't lossless anymore. Ah well. It's still in 1080p


I love Soul Eater Not!

The Pumpkin song was the highlight of my halloween 2018

Any anime that anyone thinks is just better off/works better as a manga?

Haven't read Nichijou but watched the first episode, I could already tell that the jokes might have had a better effect reading them, not watching.
Despite AzuDai's charm, I feel the same with some of its jokes, too.
Lucky Star is also up there.

Is this the slice-of-life curse?

Nichijou is better as a manga because much if not most of the jokes rely on timing. How long there is between action and reaction, buildup and punchline, etc. Because of this the reader gets to decide for themselves the pace of the atmosphere and can interpret it as per what they find funny. Naturally as a televised animation the timing will be cut short to fit more sponsors in. Despite this I enjoy the direction of Nichijou's anime adaption better. Nothing from the manga was excluded as common anime adaptions go, and instead the opposite happened as they added Helvetica Standard shorts and re-ordered Nano's chapters to give her maximum screentime. They covered as many chapters as they possibly could have with the episode count they were given and still ended on a high note. The manga does go on a little further though and wraps things up nice so I'd recommend reading it once you finish the anime.

I can't watch Kaiji cause I read the manga and the anime is so slow. Pic is from Strongest Man Kurosawa.


I watched the pilot and the first episode of Nichijou, the succubi are cute, but holy shit is it corny.

Definitely could never see myself watching this again.

This years anime convention connichi (germany) will be held online because of this virus pandemic. it appears that everyone will be free to watch the stream for free. I am not sure if they will block IP adresses from outside germany from watching it.
I felt obligated to inform everyone of this event.

>link: https://online.connichi.de/online/

I don't know if they will have english subtitles though

>program: https://plan.connichi.de

here is the program plan. there are some high profile guests from the anime industry and apparently they will show interviews, concerts and workshops / cosplay competitions.

I have no idea how this will be but I have nothing to do on friday and I might try this one out.
I hope it will be fun

watched it for a bit, was a bit disappointed that there was no amv-contest, also wasn't really interested in the presentations it was kind of strange


I used to mess with people all the time with this fake quote all the time a few years ago. God it was funny how some people reacted back then. Now it's like the old chan culture which we are currently in, has seen it all

Yes, they should've used used actual Miyazaki quotes


I think you're looking at the wrong movies and in the long way.
Walt himself in his films isn't as pronounced Miyazaki is in his and he definitely felt like a business man first and an artist second, but there are some parallels, like Walt's love for trains and Miyazaki's love for planes. It just manifested more into theme parks and some live-action movies then it did with animated films, marked by an extreme sense of sentimental nostalgia, wanting to go back to his childhood and dissatisfaction with his later years. And maybe his focus on fairy tales is a sign that this was always present within him.
Sage for probably being extremely off topic

He still mentioned his dissatisfaction about self-absorbed otaku, but he rambled about a lot of things.
I actually searched for the drunk Miyazaki paper but couldn't find it, nice!

Honestly it's been a while since I dug into Disney works besides the old movies and comics, which I mainly enjoyed in my childhood, so my comparison was a bit one-sided.

Makes sense that Walt Disney also was invested in the medium or he wouldn't have started the business, the company just got very big which usually means less personal involvment, but I don't even know how long he was calling the shots in their creations, so it's interesting to learn about his possible motivations in the way you described. We could probably go much deeper into his influences via old interviews etc., but honestly I am too lazy for that haha

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?

I watched it when I was 19 originally and now I'm fucking 30 and way older than Satou and a NEET. Like another poster said, in real life, you can't just go and get a job because stuff like job gaps and sociability factor in. The original manga author basically just went back to vegging out for a long time because he could live on the royalties. Now that's what I envy.


File: 1599754611106.jpg (213.83 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, mrunknown.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I wish there was an episode where Sato gets addicted to online message boards but by the end of it he realizes there's no escape from normalfags/douchebags on the internet or something like that. There's quite a few anime that mentions 5ch, futaba and even 4chan (like Digimon Adventure and Witch Academia). Even NHK shows a 2ch thread during the scene where Sato's crying on the floor and seeing hallucinations of the main characters, and during the suicide arc Hitomi uses a 2ch clone to discuss the offline meeting. Paranoia Agent also mentioned a made up site similar to 2ch in their suicide episode; must've been a real problem in Japan in the 00s.

Here's the afterword he wrote 5 years after the release of the book, where he said he was going to try hard to write better books.

Several years have passed since I wrote, “I still will do my best after this.” I have not done my best. Proof of that is in the fact that I haven’t written a single new story. I’ve been reduced to a NEET, living as a parasite on the royalties from this book.

This may be the result of trauma or something like that. Because of it, I developed a strange disease in my brain. Because of this disease, which causes everything to remind me of the trauma, it makes my brain cry out. It makes my brain cry out each time I try to write a story. My brain always is crying out—and because of that, I have become unable to write stories at all. Because of the terrible fear that I faced when I wrote this book, I no longer want to write stories and have become completely unable to write any. Oh, what a terrible tragedy! For a young and talented (at least, he thinks so) writer to have become incapacitated because he wrote this book!

You must read this now. A rare, dark mystique is hidden in this book, which holds the cursed origins I have explained above. It seems that a comedy manga writer long ago went crazy and often would disappear, but there was likely a ghastly force contained within the work that destroyed him, mentally. Because there must be some similar force within this book, it is a book that I confidently can recommend to anyone. It can even help with home and office communication. This book is optimal as a graft onto discussions like, “Hey, do you know the N.H.K.?” and then, someone will say, “The Nihon Hikikomori Kyokai, right? It’s really funny. But it made me cry a little, too.”

It’s embarrassing to mention something that’s selling so well, but no one knows minor works. One could say that a book around this level is indeed the masterpiece that truly could help everyone’s communication. There are jokes about all sorts of current events included, and it’s extremely useful for helping young people think about the present times. It could even be said that if you read this book, you’ll be able to understand the feelings of young people who live in our society today. Older people will be surprised, thinking, “Oh, really? Young people nowadays are like this?!” And those of the same age as the characters

>I wish there was an episode where Sato gets addicted to online message boards but by the end of it he realizes there's no escape from normalfags/douchebags on the internet or something like that.
I would rather see him realize that even some of his own fellow losers online are vindictive assholes that just make his life worse and bad company, but trying to post online only to find out you're in a farm for normies to gawk at is also realistic.
>There's quite a few anime that mentions 5ch, futaba
Futaba, I have never seen it mention in anime, I remember talking to a Japanese person online and he said it's pretty obscure and for a niche crowd, and I've lurked it before and know it's pretty slow, while 2ch was something practically everyone and their mother used. But the same is said for Niconico, otakucentric and not the go-to for your Japanese normie, but still huge and influential.
I wish I saved the screencap, there was a scene in Joshiraku where the characters were afraid of making too many ass jokes and it would show fake-2ch screencaps of people calling them "that ass anime", and there was a show from the 00's where the mona SJIS art cats showed up in one episode.
>Paranoia Agent also mentioned a made up site similar to 2ch in their suicide episode; must've been a real problem in Japan in the 00s.
>4chan (like Digimon Adventure and Witch Academia).
Shit, really? LWA might make since since I remember /a/ having a hand with its crowdfunding after the first short back in 2012-2013. Digimon is a show I loved as a child and don't know how to feel about 4chan having a mark on it 20 years later.
I remember in 2013, when Watamote was being collected into tankobon, they advertised it as being "popular on the overseas version of 2ch", aka 4chan.

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?

Cringy. The word you're looking for is "cringy". Cringe is a verb, whereas cringy is an adjective. Never make this mistake again.


yea you just have no taste


Fuck I'm Yonro irl. I hope he's still a virgin because then he'd be me to a tee, but I'm slighlty older.


>I hope he's still a virgin because then he'd be me to a tee, but I'm slighlty older
There was an episode where he tried to lose his virginity by hiring a hooker, but Shin stole the money by mistake and it ended up in the hands of every kid in the neighborhood


>This show always seemed very autistic and cringe to me
That's what this site is for.
And I hear the English dub that aired in America was very different than original Japanese, but I don't know.
