Hey everyone, i've recently got into a watching loop of pre-2000s anime movies. There's of course the well known Ghost in the Shell, or Akira for instance but there's plenty of them that are actually quite good. I know a lot of wiz here are into animes in general, so what would you suggest? I'm espescially looking for hidden pearls.

Weird to see Ai monogatari in a list like this. Lots of OVAs mixed up with movies here


He says on the anime board

>Street Fighter II movie
The plot is thin but the animation, character designs, music & voices are gorgeous. Also the fight choroegraphy was done by an actual martial artist and has no short-cuts (eg. spamming the same move multiple times, speed-lines) that plague cheaply done fight scenes.
Up there with Rurouni Kenshin OVA & Sword Of The Stranger for best anime fight scenes.


>pick related
watching that was kind of like watching a space odyssey. beautiful movie but dull and the message didnt click with me.


ok so i don't know if it counts, but the film Metropolis. it's from 2001 so it's one year too old but i personally really liked it.

Use this thread to post how you think anime or manga could be better. Note your criticism of industry trends here and suggest what may improve the medium.

I wish that anime had more varied voice acting as an example.
I think this because JP films have people talking like humans with more character but anime nearly always has the same basic voices for character if not in who does the voices it is how they talk. The problems is not present when watching MOE SOL CGDCT anime because it works to the advantage but sadly when you are watching a serious anime the voice acting can affect the anime badly.

yurifag here and yuri is looking more promising than any other anime genre now besides SOL moe.
>-but those people shouldn't count since they have nothing to do with the Japanese anime market
even if western normalfags are not influencing content the result is the same. it is the community whatever it is


anime died in 2015, around that time a bunch of different things happened like sub groups dying off and anime production companies have been shutting down as well
the changes in audience have been subtly more normalfaggish as the years go, a YouTube video essay on anime would get millions of views, even niggers started parading around in Akatsuki cloaks and making jutsu with their hands

animation itself has taken a nosedive in quality, with even the most funded "quality" anime being nothing more than a few slideshows with talking mouths and a 1-2 minute "sakuga" every 5 or so episodes
digital art looks awful in anime and so does CG animation - everything looks fake and plastic now and morons with no taste eat that shit up
shading and color palettes are a thing of the past now everything is super shiny now to appease the zoomers - the skin shines, the eyes glow, a random object in the background will be extremely detailed yet the characters themselves will have a single stroke triangle for a nose

what was once a restaurant with all sorts of full course meals to choose from became a trashy dive bar you pop into once or twice a year to get a beer in

Very simple. Actually give the animation studio time & money to do anime right. Image as example.

isekais are an example. there are literally hundreds of mangas that refer to the genre itself and that work only with that (and it is a genre that appeared about 10 years ago)


>(and it is a genre that appeared about 10 years ago)
This is comically wrong but whatever.

I think as directors, show runners, and key animators get better at digital compositing and using technology they will be able to produce higher quality animation on tv/ova budgets. If they also do what the west does and simplify designs then full fluid animation at all times and over indulgent action scenes can be accomplished on a very low budget, allowing animators to be payed and treated better.
Better pay and treatment would attract more talent. Lower production cost would mean studios would be more willing to take risk on different ideas.
I think overall this would lead to more creative freedom overall.
While it might not necessarily lead to better overall quality, it will almost certainly help with the problem of overly similar shows chasing a trend coming out season after season for years with little to no creativity.

Is this show any good at all? I've listened to the OP about one hundred times by now, is the show worth checking out? Check out the OP if you haven't already, it's awesome.

This voice actress that sung this was the same that used to play Yukino Miyazawa in Gainax's Kare Kano. It reminds me of the opening to Baki the Grappler.

This is not an anti anime post I happen to adore anime however I cannot take anime seriously.
There are rarely exceptions to this for example Haibane Renmei but anime comes off as whimsical and I cannot take it seriously as it seems so cartoon like in design.
Manga I can appreciate as serious but any serious manga that gets an anime adaption fails in this regard it all seems so silly from violence to the serious themes.

When I watch anime it is moe because moe anime is the only anime that is better than the manga as the animatuon adds to the moe and makes it fun to watch.
Haibane Renmei and a few other serious anime manage to keep me interested and invested in a serious way but I cannot get past how silly everything looks and the tone that this media has as anime usually.

The best anime are cute succubi doing cute things because if I wanted a serious story I would read a manga and if I wanted to think I would surely read a book or decide to just think myself.
Am I alone in thinking this way?

The over the top-ness is what people want. I mean most cartoons, hell even most movies have people talk in a way that no one would ever in real life.

How many chapters/episode is ONE PIECE now?


After seeing everyone rave about how great the gundam franchise is, I decided to give 0079 a shot.
Cba to watch the whole series so I started the movie trilogy, which according to most people, even anime reviewers is considered pretty good.
Idk how people like this show… The characters express almost no emotion, there's barely any humor and what's worse is this terrible We've been attacked sir, send troops and go fight that is looping over and over and over again. I get it there's some character depth and development to be found here, but the series is so DRY and pain in the ass to watch.


I notice being dry and a bit boring is a problem most anime space operas have.
With gundam shows, I find that the more they spend in deep space the lower my overall enjoyment of the series, and the more time spend on the ground usually is a hint that I will enjoy it more.
It isn't a causal relationship, but I have noticed a correlation.
Observation doesn't apply to movies and shorter OVAs though.

I have conducted a thorough analysis of anime from the year 2016. The primary purpose of this analysis is to identify works which have artistic merit, and to classify the nature of that artistic merit. Secondarily, my intent here is to rank the works in terms of their superiority in various categories. This will allow for comparison with other surveys of 2016 anime. This analysis is an expression of my own personal opinions and did not involve input from anyone else. I did this for my own intellectual and personal satisfaction, but I also hope that others may find it interesting or useful. At the very least, maybe this will generate some interesting discussion. Additionally, if you're looking for anime to watch, you can peruse through the specific categories I've provided to identify works that are likely to suit your tastes. 

Only anime which started airing in 2016 are considered here. Meaning that anime for which the first season aired before 2016 are not considered (ex. neither Hibike Euphonium nor Love Live are candidates here). The considered anime are evaluated on the basis of all seasons that have aired (not just the first season in 2016). Movies are not included unless they are related to a TV anime (ex. Bungou Stray Dogs). I am conducting reviews for other years using this same system. Annual reviews are typically done as soon as the year ends, but I believe my methodology here is superior for conducting reviews of years retrospectively. Furthermore, classifying the year's best works only by season/genre I find is an ineffective method for identifying meritorious works, so I've included more-specific categories. 

Categories and their results are listed below. Winning titles for each category are separated by commas, with the superior titles being listed first. For the genre categories I've provided two answers (the winning title followed by the runner up). However, polls for anime of the season and anime of the year typically list many top candidates in their results, so I've followed a similar procedure with my results here. For the anime of the season and year results, I've listed the top 5 candidates in order of superiority, with the winning title listed first and the progressively lesser titles listed afterwards.

Regarding the genre results, there are a couple important details:
Note: titles are classified by their superiority with respect to the stated genre alone, not overall quality (for example: x anime is a Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

OP here. I just want to mention that if the award lists are difficult to read you can paste them into a word processor and increase the font size and line spacing. I realize that the formatting is not ideal, but I am limited by the imageboard platform. Also, for people who don't feel like reading, only the first few paragraphs are necessary for understanding the award lists.

Right now I plan on doing this again for 2017 anime. So far, it seems like there are fewer anime that appeal to me from that year, so the candidate pool will probably be smaller.



OP here. I recently realized that there was an 8-episode Shaft OVA (about equivalent to a cour in runtime) which I overlooked that technically began airing in Fall 2016, so should have been included in this analysis. The OVA is titled Kubikiri Cycle: Aoiro Savant to Zaregototsukai, and you can read my review for it in another thread if you’re interested. I rated it 5/10 and the only noteworthy qualities it had were script, OST, and cinematography. It merited honourable mentions in these categories (see further below).

I’ve also been rethinking the mystery/psychological genre category. This was in part triggered by my (presently almost complete) rewatch of Flip Flappers. For some reason I overlooked Flip Flappers as a candidate in this category, when it is in fact a good so-called ‘psychological’ show that also has mystery elements. It won so many other categories, it was like it was hiding in plain sight to me. Kubikri Cycle also has some notable mystery elements.

Accordingly, I’ve changed my mystery/psychological winners to the following:
(HM = Honourable Mention)

Mystery/Psychological: Flip Flappers, Joker Game
Mystery/Psychological(HM): Kubikiri Cycle, Re Zero

Consequently, I’ve now removed mystery/psychological from the weakest genres list, which now only includes fantasy (2016 had good genre diversity).

Weakest genres of the year: Fantasy

And the inclusion of Kubikiri Cycle has changed the following honourable mention lists:

Cinematography(HM): Prince of Stride, Flip Flappers, Amanchu, Koutetsujou no Kabaneri, Kubikiri Cycle, Bubuki Buranki

I’ve also gone ahead and put the primary award lists into tables, to enhance readability and perhaps lead to more-effective long-term archiving. These tables are attached to this post and the one afterwards. I realize that I probably should have done this from the start. I will definitely make tables like this for my 2017 analysis, which I am making good progress on by the way, despite some stubborn torrents that have been stalled for months.

I haven't watched the Pokemon anime in a really long time, did they ever have another good series? I only know that they changed the animation style after all these years and they gave Ash a love interest or something? What do you wizards think of this series?

1. you can upload 3 picture per post
2. if you lurked a bit you would notice people here don't generally spam threads with porn unless that's related to the topic


Thanks, I'll use that one on your advice.

P. Lainchan has multi-image uploads without JS but this site doesn't, both vichan descendents. Some of us choose to browse with remote code execution disabled.
Q. I posted images of pokemon characters in the pokemon thread. >>37682
R. None of the images were porn. It would be much more constructive if you commented on what actually happened rather than burning a random strawman.


>None of the images were porn
it was softcore lesbian porn, don't kid yourself

I was wondering if anyone here is watching vtubers, and if so who is your favorite? I'm into Gura, and on the Niji side Rosemi and Petra primarily. I also enjoy Pippa from Phase Connect.

Here's what I wanted to ask - is there a /vt/ board on any other site than 4shit? The mods there do absolutely nothing to maintain quality.

Love vtubers especially Gawr Gura. It's fun watching them play video games I already played or watch movies with them.

I am fully aware it's just a suc behind an anime avatar but I don't see how it's different from actual anime. I don't care about who the voice is behind the cute avatar.


there is nothing wrong with being a fan of a VTer. They are in character and good at games or entertaining, I do not even watch Vtubers but I think it is fine as long as people like th echaracter and they do not see them as 3DPD


Weebs that see a problem with twitch thots but don't see a problem with v-tubers are disgusting.
They say 3DPD, yet they simp for shoddy attempts at concealing 3DPD with 2D.


>I am fully aware it's just a suc behind an anime avatar but I don't see how it's different from actual anime
It's a 3d female trying to get your money retard



I'm going to consider this 3D, you can object on /meta/ if you want.

Early Japanese web culture would not have been the same if it wasn't for flash. Since flash is going to lose all browser support in 2021, why not look back at some Japanese flash content?
Keep in mind this thread isn't for moping about flash dying or how the internet sucks now, it's for posting old flash movies and games that have Japanese origin.

Today's the day…


Nothing changes after today. It'll be years before alterations to browser code require user-made fixes to play flash, and the standalone player is pretty much bug-free.


Confirmed, I can embed and play flash files in my browser still I'm a waterfox user, don't know how chrome or firefox users are holding up
