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.

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


Yep, it bothers me.


I feel like that's common for people who get really into anime and watch a lot of it.
I have over one thousand anime logged on my MAL and I truly only remember a handful of them, because so many of them were mindnumbing harem and ecchi comedies that really had nothing going for them.
Also even for anime you like, if you're anything like me, its morely likely to remember certain story beats and parts that made an impact on you rather than every single detail.
If you still feel bummed about it I'd reccomend rewatching anime you really liked, its a nice experience when you start remembering things along the way.


yea but such is the nature of this shitty universe entropy consumes everything but in the meantime the memories we don't want stick around

Didn't know people started to hate ping pong, ashita no joe and texhnolyze. That's pretty sad. Slice of life corruption is too strong. Well I agree most of those are boring, but some are great. Too bad moe or mecha fans or whoever made that nonsense are like this.

So, what should we be watching to meet your standard of not being pretentious?

Also, I can only wonder at a definition of "boring" that includes FLCL. I strongly disagree with saying most of the others are boring, but I can better understand why one may think that for them. FLCL? Hard to get more fun, laid back and whacky. Still love it after several years.


love how all these hive minded elitists keep getting worked up over these every time it gets posted.

Street Food in Tokyo


Cities are cancer. Tokyo and 80% of Japan is just the shitty tourist trap of the world at this point. It's every normalfag's foreign paradise.


You hate everything though so your opinion doesn't matter.

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

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

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?

I think you will find that the case for the majority of manga adaptations, especially if you are valuing story over sound/animation. A far more interesting question is if there are any Anime that were better story wise than the manga or LN they are based on.

The first two that I can think of for that are Kino no Tabi and Akira, both of which cut out large sections of story I felt to be completely lacklustre when reading them. Akira the movie does get a bit rushed in explanation, but you can figure it out with the movie alone if you rewatch it a few times. Kino no tabi was just really awful in the Manga or LN, even devolving into having mascot waifu characters. Nakamura is a genius for turning that awful story into a masterpiece.


The anime takes everyday situations and overdramatizes them. Mundane events are animated in the most dynamic, exaggerated manner possible. Everything is set to an orchestral film score. Characters scream at the top of their lungs. It's hard to say if the anime is the realization of the creator's artistic vision for Nichijou or if it is just KyoAni's interpretation. A lot of jokes center around the intense reactions of characters to various situations and I think that intensity is better conveyed through the medium of animation.

Other more subtle aspects of the manga are kind of lost in the anime. The manga constructs scenes as if they are little dioramas filled with miniatures. Props and background elements recur across multiple scenes almost as if they are characters themselves. Scenes are presented from an isometric perspective at times. Care is put into the design of things like desks and pencil erasers. Everything is perfectly on model and precise. Nichijou really appeals to my inner designer. Panels and covers look like something you could hang in an art gallery.


Me personally, I would always prefer slice of life anime over manga but then, I am not one for manga anyway.


why not?

Nyaa tends be purist, so you probably won’t find anything Korean or Chinese.


Yea it kind-of is, you can still find a lot of the more popular or recent ones though. Technically Yobi The Five Tailed Fox is on Nyaa, but it has literally 0 seeders and was last posted 8 fucking years ago.


They're not purist, they have a healthy sense of self-preservation. For stuff that doesn't come with a massive, cancerous fanbase attached, they're fine. They still have all the wakfu shit. Because the French are not threatening to overrun the site and pervert its purpose.


That seems to be a Korean cartoon, so not anime. Only Japan makes anime.

Hey /jp/ I like moe but not all moe and I have to wonder what makes certain moe good? is it hard to quantify what makes the genera worth praising compared to other anime?

How did you get into moe and is it more of an otaku thing to enjoy moe plus does liking moe and being a lolicon go handin hand or just help?

I think colour scheme has a lot to do with what makes moe so good and also a plot that is engaging enough yet barely engaging also.

>I haven't watched Stella no Mahou, nor will I honestly, sorry but I've seen enough moe to last a lifetime.

That's fine. I may be remembering it through rose tinted glasses anyway. further, life is way to short to waste on things you dont personally enjoy.

> This is a problem I have with many moefans, they (maybe you or maybe not) take this position as if I believe there is NOTHING good in moe, which is simply not true. Not only that but they pretend as if I think their shows have NO themes or something of the matter.

i hear you, and i get this. i know you are able to see positives within the genre, and i know that you are merely arguing that they do not outweigh the negatives. i know you aren't trying to be an elitist and i know you aren't dismissing it out of hand.

>the problem is that the moments of interest are so thinning scattered throughout, and upon reflection you realize something important… the best parts are when it ISN'T being a moe show for a few seconds or whatever they allow

this is the important point you refuse to acknowledged. just because you don't like the moe moments doesn't mean they are worthless. they are worthless to you, not to me or other moe fans. WE enjoy them. just because YOU don't doesn't mean they are worthless. this is the problem with your logic, you continue to claim moe moments are worthless because you dont like them. though you have many valid arguments about flaws and stupid shit being frequently present in the genre (which i recognize applies to many shows) your argument for why the moe flavor itself is without value is based on your personal preference and taste. moe moments taste bad to you, so you say it is objectively bad.

>In the same way the battleshounen parts of battleshounen are the worst moments, why in gods name would I ever care about watching a predetermined fight with no real stakes since I already know the end result? In fact watching fights scenes in general is a waste of my time unless there is animation close to something like Akira or Redline to keep me amazed at the workmanship of the animators.

moe cuteness moments and fight scenes are often just fan service. your arguments on this point always just boil down to yoPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I could see before you said at the bottom that you wanted to close this conversation, but I'll leave a few quick notes on things before we say goodbye. The problem I have with this post is that while I gave reason for why moe "fan service" isn't worth anyone's time (it being irrelevant conversation/comedy with no depth) that even you admit is true by calling it fan service, you then just plant you feet and state you and others enjoy it anyways. Which is sort of silly, its like watching someone use a shovel backwards to dig a hole, and he knows its stupid but tells you that's just the way he likes using the shovel. Which I mean is fine I suppose… and I respect that you admit its all just fanservice at the end of the day. What I will say however is that just because someone might enjoy something bad, doesn't make it good, which I spoke about here >>36855 in anticipation of such notions. I could go on some more, but you aren't interested anyways so I'll keep it to myself.

>I'm not interested in arguing this point further.

Thats fine, I thought our conversation was good anyways. Nice talking with you.


I see you didn't actually answer the question.

And that video isn't even moe. You don't seem to even know what moe even is.


moe watchers are the crabs of anime; it's the same as pop love songs on the radio or romcom movies


>imo watching moe has the same effect as watching gore videos, its just on the side of the spectrum
Agreed, and I'd say it's also on the same spectrum as regular fanservice in that it exists to satisfy the viewer in a primal way that doesn't necessarily add to the story.
I notice that many people hate fanservice and gore, but have no problem with cuteness porn. Which to me is the most boring of the three - I immediately envision a cute succubus eating a cake or some shit.
I don't hate any of them: moe, gore or fanservice, but they are all sides of the same triangle.

I've been thinking about tackling this monster, over 900 episodes sounds daunting but I figured if I can do a 200 episodes show in about a month it should take less than 6 to catch up with this.
Is it worth it? Or will I waste all that time just to get disappointed by newer seasons?

I didn't like Water 7, guess it was at a point where the whole arc-structure was starting to get repetetive

Really liked the last manga-chapters though, can't wait to see the anime-version
also there was this theory that Usopp will be the one that pacifies Big Mom, and that sounds cool and plausible


I started watching it today got to episode 11 it was fun. I'm gonna try to watch at least 10 episodes a day so it won't take years to catch up


Based neet


I always forget how long this anime is. I got into it a decade ago and back then it was still a lenghty series. It doesn't have to many filler episodes but watch out, there are a few short arcs you can skip because it wasn't in the manga.


What often happens is that the episodes are just constructed with filler. Often time they have like 5 manga pages they need to stretch into ~20 minutes and so everything just happens super slowly.

Maybe this belongs more on /hob/ and if the mods agree I would hold no ill will for them for moving or deleting it but I recently got around to watching Serial Experiments Lain and wanted to find some other wizzards with good reccomendations for /dep/ anime. The ones of course given are succubi last tour and Lain. I would personally not count Watamote as it seems quite shallow and everything turns out fine in the end and whatnot. So what are some other anime, manga or light novels dealing with actual depression or schizophrenia and not in the mainstream boohoo am so sad way.

Only read it is it worth watching Imagine heavily censored.
Glad you enjoyed it the same mangaka of bokutachi ga yarimashita has another manga worth reading VERY wizardly despite its appearance from memory a Yankee manga


bokurano is pretty good, it's dark plot is surrealist with ambient scenes, there's no MC that's the good part, the story reflects a moral paradox that eshews human loyalty and futility of existence with scientific rationality



No, they're all too sane and well-adjusted.
