A few web novels I found recently have been really good especially since I haven't been enjoying any manga or anime lately. I've been reading this web novel about swinging http://novel18.syosetu.com/n2838cn/ and a few others that have been really good. It's been my best fap years which was really unexpected since I never read and don't expect much from text to being exciting.

Who else enjoys japanese novels?

Light novels -> manga -> anime

read mushoku tensei,don't fall for the best isekai evar! hype, it's good but the ending comes outta nowhere.

gonna watch spice and wolf then read the LN's.

I remember reading konosuba and No game no life many moons ago both good, use calibre for ebook management it's very convenient also for those who don't know you can send books to your kindle via email.

I also wanna read the katanagari LNs, maybe FLCL after that.


I'm still salty from the ending of Devil is a Part-timer.

I've come to this realization after watching tons of comedic, ecchi, slice of life cutesy animes. The characters precisely because of their simplified caricatured personalities form together a perfect universe - there are no imperfect parts to the characters, they're idealized to the utmost, every feature of their fits perfectly, the relationships as well. Anime is the better version of our world. I'm happy I have anime in my life. I can feel a huge variety of emotions while watching it, which are inaccessible to me in any other medium, be it movies, books, TV series, actual real life. I feel no connection to anybody in the real world. I care not for even for my parents. Yet I still cry for these animated characters. Nothing moves me but anime, the art style, the characters, the music, everything about it fills my soul with joy (and sadness, anger - the whole emotional scope, but mostly joy)

I hope when I die I'll go to 2D heaven.

Strongly disagree. Especially nowadays, most shows and everything simply can't exist without cute females.


it's no worse than western media that can't create anything without multiculturalism and political correctness, I prefer the way anime does it personally


Try Koihime Musou unless you hate cute stuff

Safe to walk around
Nice scenic walks
Housing actually affordable and not NYC tier jewed up
Clean and comfy

Too bad western and azn normies are flooding the city now.

I'd love to move there if I could.

I was there last year and didn't felt like that with Tokyo, but Kyoto did feel oddly calm despite being so big and touristy


Yeah tokyo didn't really seem calm to me either. Lots of loud ads blaring their slogans. Though it becomes dead silent the moment you get outside the town centers.


Souffle omelette?!?

True dat


Tokyo has a surprising ammount of green areas tbh


Street Food in Tokyo

I never watched anime but now that I'm mostly burned out from manga and games I decided to put my Japanese to some other use and anime is pretty much what's left for me as far as escapism goes. I'm going pretty much blind here and the first title I picked up more or less at random is Himouto! Umaru-chan. I managed to watch the whole thing through so it wasn't a bad pick, I think. I like the episodic nature of it. You can enjoy a whole story in 10 minutes or less.

The main character, Umaru is the perfect student and athlete, excelling in everything at life without even trying. At home she's an otaku, fast food junkie and an annoyance to her brother, Taihei. Most of the show is made of jokes on her double identity, sort of. To be honest I didn't find it funny, more like amusing. It's an easy, relaxing watch. The important thing is to take it for what it is, light hearted stories about characters that really care for each other.

What I liked the most about it though is the actual hero in all of this, Umaru's brother, Taihei. I liked his wholesome personality, always trying to do the right thing, clearly trying to become a good adult. He's a decent cook and manages to keep order in his house, despite Umaru's being a toy hoarder and never cleaning after herself. Again, this is all setup for the jokes, but I enjoyed it Taihei's character beyond that. I also enjoyed the episodes around Kirie a lot, as she progresses from being basically mute to being able to make and maintain friends. I would like to see her finally coming into terms with her brother.

All in all, all problems those people have are superficial, it's either there for a joke or to be easily overcome. Everyone has a kind heart and everything works out in the end. Good escapism, and a good start. Let's see what I'll stumble upon next.


god I hated that show
went through with it anyways and even watched the shitty ovas
I'll do anything to distract myself from my hopelessness


I'm three episodes into cosmo warrior zero, it's another show from reiji matsumoto and looks like a standalone story, it's pretty solid so far. Maybe it'll go to shit, I probably don't care if it does. Anime in that man's art style is just comfy to watch. I guess because galaxy express 999 and that other one were some of my first animes in the early 90s. The stories he writes are also good, about classical manliness and heroism.

It ain't no moeshit, that's for sure.


>What are you watching?
Asobi Asobase
>What are you enjoying?
It's nice, reminds me of Nichijou
>What have you dropped?
Legend Of the Galactic Heroes, I really wanted to like it but I just find it too boring
>What are you looking forward to next season?
Nothing really, maybe doctor stone season 2


I just decided to watch jujutsu kaisen and it turns out I've already seen it. I don't know what is going on here. It's not supposed to be a remake as far as I can tell but I remember everything that's happened and I remember the next episode which happens at the prison but hasn't been released yet so it must be a remake.

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

definitely, but it aids in enjoying shounen time after time having rewatched some 10 times. I used to be concerned about not carrying it with me until I read higurashi. It was like a 100 hour long read but I pretty much remembered every single thing even after a year away. You should try it, if you want to have a stellar piece of dojin work to have in you forever, but only if you haven't seen the adaptations.


If you're talking about the third: the succubus with the blue eye that I think you're talking about, your memory is really spotty. If you want the anime you can find it on nyaa.si. Exiled destiny has a torrent with seeds


That's just a word filter. Replace it with g*irl incase anyone gets confused


Yup that's it. Thanks a lot you are a lifesaver. I honestly couldn't remember anything except the setting. I watched this anime like over a decade ago on a streaming site and over time completely forgot about it


I watched more than 100 anime and don't remember much

Share scenes from anime you like, found interesting, or that caught your attention.
You can also explain what you like or found interesting about it.

I'll begin, in this one scene, which is from an anime for kids, you can be misled into thinking that these two had sex. It gives that impression, which makes a scene that should be sad and romantic, a hilarious one.

Eva is such a blessing to the world


The graffiti to the left of the box says ”レイプマン” or "rape-man"
the graffiti on the blue box says 死 or "die". Wut?


looks like it says 碇レイプマン or "Ikari Rapeman" though i don't get the insult, maybe the implication comes from Gendo and his wife-clones

btw the new trailer came out for the latest movie, looks like it will air on 23.1. finally


File: 1602838748588.png (4.05 MB, 1916x1079, 1916:1079, 03.PNG) ImgOps iqdb

on the left it also says "unko" or "shit", if you mean why graffiti was on there in the first place I assume it was because of the poor reception of the series-ending, additionally to the deaththreat-letters


I didn't know that kanji, or most kanji for that matter. Also, imagine being so triggered by an animus ending that you decide to vandalize it and one of the only insults you can come up with are "Ikari Rapeman"


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.

Basically, I like good story and hate anything like sol and cgdct. I am fine with slice of life as long as it's an occasional filler episode though. As far as specifics are concerned, I genuinely like:
>Romance (has to be mixed in with another genre in this list, otherwise I probably won't like it)
>Space opera
>Sci-fi and/or fantasy
>Vampire succubi
>Small tits, but big ass (lolis, adults, teens, doesn't matter)
What I HATE:
>Romance with no resolution
>Detective anime
>Racing anime (with initial d being the only exception)
>Cow tits


No they hate it because in their fragile liberal minds they perceive goblins as muslims


>What? There's a violent creature in that game that kills and rapes? WHY ARE THEY SO RACIST AGAINST *insert race*


What shit taste. You are pretty much describing about aria the animation to a tee.
>No story
>Characters claiming they are working hard to get into a profession, while slacking off most of the time
>Is on a teraformed planet, despite this, Akari (14 years of age) didnt even know what a meteorite was
>Is braindead sol
>Is a blend of fantasy/sci-fi in the worst possible way

Yes, but only if you have imagination and are willing to read extra/dig into the show. Some people like >>34601 can't understand that SEL truly doesn't want to be "scifi" or any other genre. Lain doesn't care about plot, characters, setting, or anything like that really. There are only two things SEL cares about: it's themes and the feeling it presents with it's atmosphere. If you value plot, coherent world building, and such related things above all else then you will dislike SEL. It's not that kind of show, and doesn't even attempt to be. The aspects it cares about, man does it fucking hit them with a homerun. Like perfect 11/10 tier.

The blending of internet and reality, if one is who they think they are, if who others say they are is who they are, if their actions are who they are, the social isolation that internet brings, the strange groups or cults that appear because extreme people segregate with other extreme people on the internet, and much more. Lain IS deep, regardless of whatever insincere ironic shitposters say; but only for those who put effort into finding things for themselves. "Deep" shows mean exactly what they mean, that it requires effort to uncover or dig up what it has to offer. If want to watch it once and understand everything, then don't bother with deep shows.

Being deep doesn't mean it's good, but people like deep shows because you have to put yourself into what you are consuming. It's not just "someone else's story", it's almost become something you discovered and crafted while digging into it. Your interpretations of the stories and events are now attached to the story, so you become attached to that thing you did not create. Which is why people who enjoy SEL will tell you they LOVE LAIN.

I'm currently watching Season 3 of Sonic X.

…..I'm having a surprisingly fun time -_-




What is this a reference to?

Anyways, so far it's reminding me a lot of Space Battleship Yamato.

I don't know about poorly written, but knights of sidonia is my guilty pleasure anime because it's a netflix original and that Izana Shinatose is best succubus.

It makes me sad that anime from the early 2000s have already faded into obscurity, and discussion has all but died off on imageboards and forums. I see maybe one short-lived thread per year about tsukihime on all the imageboards I lurk. Do younger fans of anime just not like the style of 2000s stories?

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

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
