The Future of JapanI don't like making /dep/ressing threads, especially on hobbyist boards like /jp/, but this has been bugging me for a long time now. Japan has always been a hot spot for foreigners, but I've noticed a lot, and I mean A LOT of people trying to invade the country recently. And to make things worse, not only will they eventually flood the gene pool, but they're going to pressure Japanese society into changing their morals as well. Don't think they wont, the Japanese are a very insecure race, especially young people that idolize shitty American pop culture. https://twitter.com/obskyr/status/1274628006103838720.
Anime recommendationsI'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.
/dep/ animeMaybe 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.

Touhou Thread II - 2018 ed.Talk about Touhou here. I think the OP or something. It's been three months. We've all talked about our favorite characters, so what's your favorite part of the fandom? Do you like the setting the most, the characters the most, the lore the most, the music the most, or, like me, do you just idealize the series like I do?

Most disappointing animeWhat was the most disappointing anime you have ever watched? For me personally, it was Sailor Moon Crystal. I'm a big Sailor Moon fan and I was pumped for the new series to come out, even though it kept getting delayed I didn't care, I just wanted to feel the magic I felt watching the series for the first time again. But when the show aired in the summer of 2014 i was met with a show with extremely sloppy animation, poor writing and really just an underwhelming vibe to it. It was just such a gut punch to see my favorite show get treated with such a mishandled and mediocre retelling.
KissAnime and KissMangna shut down foreverThe websites were closed forever, the owners said.
If you're into Hikkikomori/NEET stuff you might find this interesting.This guy's story is interesting and i think more people should know about him. I also found his kickstarter video reminding me of Borat, begging people to buy his game or "he will be execute", it was funny but also gave those all too familiar wageslavery feels hard.
web novel / light novelsA 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.
Anime is PerfectI'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)
EvangelionOkay, I just finished the the series.

Anime Recommendation ThreadTell 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.
Reccomend me some good animesUnfortunately, 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
NoAnime SeptemberHas anyone experience in cutting out anime from your life? I'm thinking of doing a NoAnime September and seeing how it will turn out.
General help threadBros 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

WatamoteI despise this series.
Obscure anime part 2Many people were disagreeing with a lot of the anime that were in the iceberg meme and I have to agree too. I didn’t make the image, I only found it somewhere and I wish someone or some people can make better, more accurate images of the obscure anime iceberg meme. It doesn’t have to be an iceberg, another cool way of making it would be the depth of the ocean with the Mariana’s Trench being the deepest part of the ocean. I just really wish someone could make a more accurate meme/image for obscure anime list cuz I feel the current one is very inaccurate
Why is this considered "anime" ?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?
BacklogWhat do your backlogs look like wizards? Do you plan on adding or dropping anything? Mine isn't the biggest since I've only recently gotten into anime, I've pretty much only seen the basics like CCS, Evangelion and the Dragon Ball series.

NyaaNyaa.se is down, rumored to be because the owner was afraid of new EU laws making pirating more dangerous, so it's unlikely it's coming back up again.
shounen animeDoes anyone still watch them? One of the biggest reasons I haven't touched a shounen anime in like, 12 years is how there's always someone talking passionately about his freaking boku no seigi….
Lonely animeDo you know any more anime that give you a feeling of isolation and loneliness? Where the interactions between characters are short? Where it's more about the atmosphere created by images and sound rather than story and dialogue? They don't necessarily have to take place in desolate places. It could also be about the sense of isolation you get from living in a big city.
revengful characters in animeHey. What character I like from anime?
New to animeI've never been into anime and I don't know much about it. However, I decided to check out One Punch Man and I'm enjoying it a fair bit. I've never been able to stick to hobbies or find any passion or purpose in life. Is anime a worthwhile thing to get into? I'm beginning to see why so many people love it. The problem is, it just seems so dense. So much to learn, so many forums, so many niches. It's a little intimidating for a newcomer. Where do I begin? Should I learn Japanese? I've never been able to actually succeed at something like that, but maybe getting into anime would give me a reason too. Will anime improve my life and make me a better person? Will it make the bad things in life, like wageslaving and disease, more bearable?

ITT: Mecha Anime that you Really LikedThis one here's Aldnoah.Zero. While many might argue that it's not really good, I actually managed to understand the anime on a deeper level. It has a lot of metaphors and says something a lot about Earth and the people living there. The main problem is that the characters are not so written well and being an anime with only 24 episodes, it kinda got rushed when it could have been a lot better if only they made more episodes of it. So, what mecha anime do you like, fellow apprentice wizards and wizards ?
Silence is Autism now, apparently?I really like silent, iyashikei anime/manga. Stuff like Yokohama Kadaishi Kikou or Mushishi is top tiered shit for me. Second down from that, but pretty close is easy-going sol shit. You know, the standard fair that Lucky Star kicked off, but I'd include 'fluff'-shit like Wife'n'Wife even though it can be irritating to me from time-to-time.
