Idk I can see how referential humor is cringe, and pretentious. And I don't find it funny either.
But to be honest I don't mind. That's the thing I like about Nisio Isin. He is so immersed in different media to the point where he thinks in them. Although it is weaker during most conversation it shines with the actual arcs. Arcs which take different media and use them to analyze characters.
Yeah I agree during dialogues most of the time they are quite useless (only occasionally funny), but it's not enough for me to hate Nisio Isin's work, and these references are advantageous during most arcs. (some arcs are retarded).

>Is this show worth it?
The first season? Sure. The 15 other seasons? No, not at all. This is a series based on novels that have had things like 20 entire pages in a row of pure dialogue, all devoted to talking about panty shots. There is only so long one can hide behind "irony" or "deconstruction" before people realize ironically doing something for 15 seasons is not very ironic anymore. Ignoring the fanservice and wasteful dialog time sinks, what is really at work in gatari? Characters seemed to be based on skimming Wikipedia articles on arbitrary DSM-5 conditions. Instead of actually dealing with any real issue or problem, usually you have some shounen fight instead. That or it's just simply allowed to continue, perhaps even promoted as a good or ok thing. Some of these issues or thoughts of the show could be interesting; but the show wastes so much time with sections worthless dialog and fanservice, so that not enough time is given for the actual themes or message. Sometimes the message is just bad or boring. Take Nisegatari for example, an entire season to state that "truly pretending to be something is the same as being something". Lets de-pseud that. Pretending is the same as being because: Actions are the same. Really one could just say "actions define the person", and it would comment the same as Nise. Yet that doesn't sound as interesting, despite being essential the same statement.

Bros I need some help. I downloaded this one anime (with english subs) and I can't figure out how to use the english subs. There is a file named: subs.rar in the the file directory but I have tried to paste them out of it (they're called [insert episode name here].ass) and when I use my video player, it has an option (in the subtitle settings) to find a subtitle file so I can play the video with subs. Yet, when I select the file directory, it just says: no subtitle files found. What do I do? This anime pretty high quality and it's very hard to find a torrent(s) of it (with all the seasons) that are still seeded on utorrent. I honestly don't know what to do and I'm stuck

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?

Nichijou is better as a manga because much if not most of the jokes rely on timing. How long there is between action and reaction, buildup and punchline, etc. Because of this the reader gets to decide for themselves the pace of the atmosphere and can interpret it as per what they find funny. Naturally as a televised animation the timing will be cut short to fit more sponsors in. Despite this I enjoy the direction of Nichijou's anime adaption better. Nothing from the manga was excluded as common anime adaptions go, and instead the opposite happened as they added Helvetica Standard shorts and re-ordered Nano's chapters to give her maximum screentime. They covered as many chapters as they possibly could have with the episode count they were given and still ended on a high note. The manga does go on a little further though and wraps things up nice so I'd recommend reading it once you finish the anime.

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 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!

>>34465
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

Is there a more relatable /wiz/ character than Yonro? I haven't watched Shin-chan in years since it's a pain in the ass to watch outside of Japan and I'm pretty sure it shares the same fate as spongebob or south park, but is yonro still in modern episodes?

Sorry I was way too drunk while writing that, think I pulled the "death by 30" out of my ass, can't find any source, no idea where I got that from

Reading the linked article it says that she told her editor
>"You'll be dead at 35."
>I went completely pale.
>Why am I going to be dead at 35?
>A drug overdose? A hit and run?
>I don't want to die.
>I couldn't stop thinking about her ominous prediction.
>She had seen the shadow of death hovering over me.
>But her premonition, it turns out, had in fact been directed at herself.

she also tried commiting suicide before:
>Having attempted to commit suicide in the past, Nekojiru had written wills on a number of occasions.
>Her last extant will in fact dated from several years prior.

her manga also seemed to tell awful much about herself, like the first one, Nekojiru Udon Ch. 11, where the cat wants to become invisible

I saw Shiki on DVDs a year ago so I don't think it's that obscure.
What I am surprised is that it was written by the same person as Twelve Kingdoms, which I very much enjoyed but never see anyone talk about.

I have no clue what is keeping you people from talking about the best contribution Japan has brought into the Americas.
Personally, I like any 90s Honda Coupe just as long as it's possible to rice up to 500+ horsepower with at least 50 pounds of torque. The Honda Del Sol was by far my childhood dream car, but I ended up settling for a Honda CRX my parents gave me.

Any Toyota fans out there too? Toyota has been going down the drain in terms of fun factor. I can't wait until Toyota's reliability goes down too to the point where Toyota stops production in America alltogether like Toshiba.

And of course, Mazda is doing just fine.
