I'm a Canadian wizard, is this series any good? Is it at least historically accurate?

What is going on in this thread?


waifuism ≠ worshiping succubi, fictional female characters created by men are just idealizations and have almost nothing to do with what succubi are like in reality.


Very narrow topic threads tend to meander off course a bit from time to time but usually they do find their way back on topic.


>They did all the same for Heidi too, which is another essential Wizard read/watch.
Heidi is even better than Anne imo


How so?

So, we all know about that documentary where Hideaki Anno goes to his middle school and teaches animation for a few days. Question is, has anyone ever managed to track down *other* episodes from that documentary series?


would be interested to know how those children developed, what career paths they chose later in life. basically if his teaching had any impact, animation-wise

Best storyline, Best fights, Best charcters, Best villians, many people think that all the fights are the same and all the arcs are to similar when they're not, it sucks only with pacing and maybe it is long

The worst didn't come to life - she has not joined and will never join. Thank god.


Anyone else looking forward to the train wreak that will be the live action netflix adaptation>


I'm waiting for multiple trainwrecks.


terrible, bloated series, also we already have a one piece thread on /jp/


Its literally one of the most popular series in the world, and known as one of the Big 3. I don't like using ad homs usually, but are you genuinely stupid, OP?

I like to draw myself with my waifu because I don't need to be with a 3d hoe, I know maybe it's a little cringe but it's a thousand times preferable to dealing with a real bitch.
¿Somebody else feel this way?

I hate the way I look even when I'm skinny, so I just made an OC that looks like how I'd want to look like but never can.
won't post anything though


I can't even imagine a waifu wanting me.

your OC guy looks cool


> Men who DON'T imagine themselves side-by-side with their self-professed waifu are the men who are cringe. You've proven your love for her through your art
No , you waifufags are cringe. I never imagined waifu and even that word and everything related to it is cringe.


romance, even this fictional fantasy waifu romance stuff, makes me cringe

but drawing it is kinda cool, at least you're creating something, producing things that can be experienced by others should they ever see it

should I move this thread to /b/?


if you have to ask, then maybe you should step down


Whaaaaat? Moving such a high quality thread that also got posted on 4chad before here? https://boards.4channel.org/a/thread/242652916

Don't you dare!

Why is Tower of God considered an anime when it is adapted from a manhwa? If it is solely because a Japanese studio did it then why isn't the same logic applied to Cannon Busters? So basically anyone with money can just pay a studio to adapt their source material and it will be "anime"? Seems like a bad precedent we are setting. How does Japan feel about this?

So it has to be made for Japan to be anime?


Anime is japanese animation. there is plenty of manga adapted from western novels. Maybe there should be another term for wholly japanese created works.

Manhwea and web toons are nearly always appealing to normies the art is always down badly in these comics as well and I dislike that they are being made into anime but most mass produced anime is lacking any substance anyway.

I would be more concerned about shitty CGI being used in anime OP.


words just get bastardized over time, any turn-based combat game could be called a jrpg, anything that looks like anime could be called anime, people will get what you're saying unless they are being pedantic


fuck you op for fucking triggering me on what a bluepilled cuck that sissy main character is

I watched it when it came out, and then I quickly graduated into actually good mahou shoujo.


My enjoyment of the TV series increases with every rewatch whereas my enjoyment of Rebellion (which I usually watch side by side with the tv series) plummets with each watch


You're probably thinking of Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku.

It was mediocre IMO.


If you can't perceive the artistic merit of Madoka Magica you frankly have zero taste whatsoever.

You don't have to like it but it's quite obviously a significant cultural contribution.


Watching and "getting the message" of Madoka Magica turned an entire generation of innocent anime watching kids into future wizards.

Is this show any good? I watched the dubbed version as a kid, and I seemed to have remembered enjoying it.

Its literally just edgy Hamtaro.


A show is only as good as you perceive it to be - take a view and tell us about your thoughts


lol. No, it's not. Both shows just happen to have hamsters as characters.


This isn’t Ebichu….


what? kuromi's birthday is on halloween you black nigger. kuromi is the best character in the show and maybe the best character of all time, so i hope you aren't referring to some other succ in the show.
my melody is so mean to kuromi in the show that i genuinely don't understand how she has fans.

2chan? I dont speak japanese at all,0 knowledge. But I want to ask a couple of (sociology-related)questions to a rather large group of japanese-born hikkis and neets,etc.
where do I go to,how do I introduce myself there to avoid glowing? im interested in a "native hikki" views on buddhism-celibacy relationship,and also on general japanese paradise-depression contrast.

a lot of them speak English too.


What's with the amount of threads here that are like "I wanna speak with japanese people but I don't know shit about japanese".
In any case 2chan does have a hikikomori board, but people there tend to be very closed off and they will know if you're using an online translator to communicate with them. They will probably assume you're korean and tell you to fuck off.


Buddhism comes from India and spread to China via Central Asia. From there it spread to Japan ect. in East Asia.


There is a thread dedicated to chatting in English on 2chan's hikikomori board.
Maybe you can write there.

Would this board be better if anime discussion wasn't allowed? I like anime, but this board's so slow that having any actual discussion outside of the anime review thread or the cute anime character threads, is basically pointless. The world of imageboards needs a place for niche otaku discussion, but alas, no site caters to such interest. What with the modern day youth on this site, there'd probably just be a bunch of Vtuber threads to take all the anime discussion's place. What does /jp/ - Japan/Anime, think?

Japan itself takes great pride in anime and actively promotes it globally. You are free to discuss anything japan related here, the onus is on you to do so.


You're referring to the "Cool Japan" initiative and that sentiment only applies to things which foreigners find palatable.


2. yeah no shit they promote the things foreigners like to foreigners
2. They made the olympic mascots anime themed. The government actively funds anime production. It is clearly something they enjoy and wish to keep prevalent.


I wasn't disagreeing with you, in any case. Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Really love Japanese culture especially now I'm in my 30s and appreciate life outside of Port addiction. Always been obsessed with Japanese kickboxing and martial arts. The best organisations were shootboxing, k-1 and pride. Since then I got distracted but want to start following again.

Read only 2 Japanese samurai books: book of 5 rings and the hagakure. Both essential reads. Especially hagakure. It's a collection of short histories and philosophies of the samurai from one area. The blood genealogy brings tears to my eyes everything I read that part. And the level of valour their philosophy led to is so refined to the point one part describes how you should try to get as far into the enemy line in battle because you'll look braver and everyone will respect you and also to always die with your head towards the enemy so there's no doubt you were moving forward.

And the stories giving examples of warriors deeds are awe inspiring. They see courage is the greatest sight humans can behold. Better than any beauty.

I want to study Shintoism and draw from it the core meanings to construct my own way of life and philosophy. It seems closest to pre Christian British religion so hopefully it fills the gaps.

A great source of interesting niche Japanese culture is Japanology on the NHK. They're 30min programs focused on 1 aspect of Japanese life from vending machines to mushrooms, to bonsai etc.

Also learning the language but only up to grade 2 kanji and such at the grammar. Need to quit internet again to spend more time reading and writing when I'm at my best.
