I can't believe I became a wizard before Berserk could finish.

What do you speculate the next trend in anime will be?
We had moe and it seems as if iseaki is still in full force but waning and I cannot imagine what the next trend will be so I am curious what you wizards speculate.

I do not think Moe will go away we will always have cute succubi doing cute things but maybe it will be different I think perhaps the art style will change and sadly feel that loli stuff may become rarer as more and more normalfags watch anime to the point that MAL reviews on loli anime is critical of the fact there is a loli in it featured with some fan service.

I am secretly hoping that more depressing anime gets made and even some anime that is entirely in black and white like a manga I love the visuals in anime but manga can really look so much better for some stories.

Sorry for the brainfart

>you would have to be touched to think it is amazing or just a total idiot to go on abouti t

and now imagine how touched you'd have to be to put this much energy into arguing about media you clearly don't like


It's a fad that will pass soon enough. I doubt it will stick around long enough to influence anything of significance
Might end up in Macross though since they been doing plot lines that are kind of the sci-fi version of v-tubers since the 90s.


to anyone who actually watched NGE it's pretty apparent there is no "random cool shit from the bible" in it but carefully planned and structured references and idioms to gnotisticism and kabbalism

just put yourself in his place - imagine a bunch of normies asking you daily what NGE means? the meaning is obviously lost on those who don't get it - hence him saying "yeah it's just a bunch stuff i thought was cool" is the only proper response he can give

after reading about gnosticism everything in the show made so much more sense, and in the end it really doesn't matter what the intentions of the showrunners were, what matters is what message you as a viewer get from all of it

Have you noted that there are more and more people with low power level in anime community than ever? I mean, even here almost every recent thread is filled with people who don't know what they're talking about, let alone can give some deep insight in any matter.

People who can't say anything very interesting about the plot of an anime, nor discuss something about it for more than 2 minutes because he doesn't know what he is talking about. You would expect this to be the case in normalgroid sites, that's a given, but I'm seeing this even in places where there are supposed to be people who are at least interested in anime and otaku culture. Honestly is very boring that there are no people who like to know about their favorite things.

You vastly overestimate the population of the older anime-speaking community, and especially the complete weirdos who make it their life's pursuit. Even back in the yesteryears, I recall tripfags and namefags considered "pro" for having seen 400 titles. That ain't shit. Even if you give them the benefit of the doubt and assume those 400 titles comprise every single genre, that's still not even close to enough be considered any sort of expert once you break it down by category.

The sort of walking encyclopedia of anime knowledge you're referring to is a rare breed, and with the zoomer and normalfag tourism of anime going on now a days, they're vastly outnumbered by >>36396 these sorts.


I don't really interact with the "community" other then occasionally reading the comment section of streaming sites or watching anime related videos on youtube by fans.

I do know that anime and manga are both exploding in popularity so it's obvious that logically that means there are more newbies then ever.
As long as they aren't posers or authoritarians out to destroy everything to make it fit their morals and sensibilities, it's not bad.


I primarily blame streaming services, it really lowered the bar of entry before you at least had to know how to torrent or pay out for a DVD to watch anime


Netflix anime fans are conditioned to excuse horrible CGI in fact fuck Netflix for animating good manga into unwatchable shit


I can't imagine watching 200 anime then wanting to watch 200 more.

Do you ever watch shitty/obscure/forgotten anime just for the hell of it?


I haven't kept up with anime trends in a long time, last thing I really remember was when K-on and PAnty stocking were all the rage

I said most, buddy. I'll give anything a chance. This season alone I've watched a couple series… hated most of them, but Odd Taxi, Yokai Watch and Gloomy are okay. But if my opinions on the actual quality of animation irked you, that is a statement I'm afraid I cannot take back. We all know traditional hand-painted animation is better my friend. I know studios will never go back to inhouse animation, but if everything from now on is going to be toonboom, motion rigged 2.5D rigamarole, can cartoons at the very least, get a little more creative and experiment with some mixed media?


Dinosaur and gal is decent very trippy and random but does it well not in zoomed way or family guy way


>We all know traditional hand-painted animation is better
No thanks! I'm not interested in huffing my own farts for meme purposes.
Digital is the superior medium and allows for considerably wider range of atmosphere, tone, and creative direction, while vastly cheaper and faster. It's objectively better in all ways. Cry foul all you want, but I couldn't care less about the opinion of some failed normalfag who couldn't cut it.


>Digital is the superior medium
>vastly cheaper and faster
>I couldn't care less about the opinion of some failed normalfag who couldn't cut it
"Failed normalfag", where did that come from? You sound more like a TV producer than a wizard. Digital is superior because it's cheaper? I have a feeling you eat a lot of McDonalds

I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.

Adachi to shimamura is very special I suggest maybe reading Yuri manga since there is not too many good Yuri anime. I have not finished bloom into you but it is praised. Have you seen Citrus? I felt it was bad no romance.


Yesterday wo Utatte (the manga, anime is a rushed adaptation)


Yeah, that shit was awful. Way more interested in melodrama and stupid bullshit instead of telling a good story of two succubi falling in healthy love. Yagate was fantastic though, you should get around to finishing it.

Got any manga suggestions? I'm more an anime guy, but I do read some manga and have been keeping up with some of the newer yuri like Whispering you a love song. Hetero is OK too if you know of any as well.

I hated that anime. It was 11 straight episodes of torture as characters stubbornly gravitated towards people clearly ill-suited for them while blatantly ignoring much healthier relationships. That it corrected itself in the last episode did little to fix my anger. How is the manga different?


I just checked out a website called yurireview and the top 10 list has me downloading a few titles so maybe you could gain from it also


Thanks for the tip off, I'll make sure to check out the site thoroughly. Just from a casual glance at the top 10 though, there seems to be a lot of shows that are subtext-only, or ones that are focused on other story aspects and the yuri is incidental. Not a good sign, but I suppose genuine pure romance is fairly rare so you take what you can get.

I've never been into anime and I don't know much about it. However, I decided to check out One Punch Man and I'm enjoying it a fair bit. I've never been able to stick to hobbies or find any passion or purpose in life. Is anime a worthwhile thing to get into? I'm beginning to see why so many people love it. The problem is, it just seems so dense. So much to learn, so many forums, so many niches. It's a little intimidating for a newcomer. Where do I begin? Should I learn Japanese? I've never been able to actually succeed at something like that, but maybe getting into anime would give me a reason too. Will anime improve my life and make me a better person? Will it make the bad things in life, like wageslaving and disease, more bearable?

I await your responses. Thank you, wizards.

GT was the best because I rather see Pan than half naked men


early Dragon Ball was best, it had Bulma naked in like every episode


Death Note is a good beginners anime


I have a pretty high tolerance for dragonball's plot and such but the decline in care or effor in the animation really lowered my interest in the show.
The animation of db was never amazing or anything but it was over a certain minimal bar.
Super is consistently below that bar. Especially for a show with that kind of money behind it.

There is also the fact that I grew up with the dub so I can't get used to Grandma Goku voice of the sub, and I refuse to watch the dub anymore since it came out that most of the VAs are dicks who hate their fans and have twater brain syndrome that seems to effect all the behind the scenes people involved in western nerd culture.
Maybe if I ever get back in to manga I will read the manga instead.


don't imbue anime with magical life changing properties, don't do that to anything. You can't become a weeaboo because only an idiot can identify as anything. I just watch some anime here and there, maybe 2 a year. Most simply don't hold my attention. Anime has great moments but its all bogged down with tropes, eye-rollingly bad melodrama and japanese 'humor' which i suppose you need to be japanese to get.

Has anyone else ever seen this series? I watched the dub as a kid was obsessed with it. Are there any good subs of this show?
27 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


This show has been on my backlog for a while. Going with the subbed version, as I doubt a kids show dub from the early 2000's still holds up today.


>That one episode that was randomly made by Gainax


The OP is great, the ED was a bit weird at first, but I got used to it.

Pretty decent OST also.


Just finished watching this show, it was fun, exciting, and was even pretty crazy at times. I would recommend watching this, I'd give it an 8.7/10


Was season 2 never fully subbed? I can't find it anywhere.

Didn't see one in the catalog, so I'd like to have a thread on Japanese internet to share interesting things we've come across. Can be videos, sites, articles, particular threads, etc.

I'll start off with a few things below.

So the wonderful autists at 2ch have been harassing another 3D loli this week. This succubus on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun, and of course some pervs stumbled upon it and asked her to do more, which she did. Well concerntrolls of course found the thread and told her they're "going to inform her classmates" and now the succubus wants to shinitai.


>This (3d loli) on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun
why do succubi do this
>not linking the videos
why do wizards do this


>This succubus on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun
I thought this only happened in doujins. What the fuck


Do any of you know any comfy 2000s japanese websites to browse? Anything welcome but bizarre stuff is preffered

has reading about the authors explanation or views about their manga altered how you enjoy it at all?

A specific example here and I warn of possible spoilers about the oyasumi punpun manga.

I have read punpun many times and part of the enjoyment was trying to understand some of the stories in a deeper level in particular the schizophrenic like prophet.
I always wondered what purpose this side narrative served so every reread would think about it and try piece something together but then I read this interview https://mangabrog.wordpress.com/2014/07/06/inio-asano-interview-reality-is-tough-so-read-this-manga-about-cute-succubi-and-feel-better/ to find the part where the author discusses this search Pegasus on the page.

Now that I know that there was not really anything "deep" and complex about Pegasus and it was just because punpun was a freeter I feel as if it ruined the fun of the story for me and I am hesitant to read what authors say about their work now as it can kill the magic.


inverse happened to me with Bleach and Tite Kubo
i thought he was a retard but it turns out he just wanted to draw cool shit
he was forced by shonen jump to keep writing bleach even though he never planned to be a manga artist and it turned out better than One Piece and Naruto anyway


I do not like shouen I liked spirit circle though and that is shouen like however is bleach worth reading?


It's more of I lost interest when I found out irl information that means the manga I was reading was ether never getting finished or unlikely to be finished because the mangaka is doing something else or has life stuff going on or some sort of industry news comes out about the company that publishes the manga dropping it or something.

I use past tense because it's been a few years since I was really into manga.
I mainly just watch anime these days.


I don't place any value on things like messages or hidden meanings in art, so that wouldn't bother me. Everything that matters is in the details on the surface (and that is more substantial than any encoded "idea" could possibly be).
