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

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.
EvangelionOkay, I just finished the the series.
WatamoteI despise this series.
Manga threadMy brain is too fucked to pull two intelligible sentences together, so pardon me if I don't make any sense.
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?
Neon Genesis EvangelionI'm kind of surprised this isn't already in the catalog. So, uh, let's talk about Evangelion?
Anyone here been to japan?Times ticking so I’m thinking about making my pilgrimage soon. What places would you recommend going to? I’d like to see a lot of mecha stuff but any recommendation would be fine.

Tourism SimulationI always fantasized about going to Japan and Hong Kong but beeing a poorfag I can obviously not afford it. Do any of you know some good tourism simulations (can be either video games or documentary movies)?
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.
Yuri aestheticsIt seems that a lot of yuri works tend to have this particular aesthetic about it. The distinction is clear when compared to normal male-female romance manga. Yuri artworks tend to have flower imagery, mellower color, more elegance. On the other hand, conventional romance work tends to have a more passionate theme, uses bright and simple colors, and have characters that exudes cuteness and salaciousness rather than beauty. In the story itself, yuri also tends to be more emotional and have more subtle developments and interaction. This is also expressed into traditional yuri cliche where instead of a regular highschool, the story takes place in a prude ladies' school with mild-mannered characters and repressed interactions.
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)
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.
Plz help me boysIts me, the Prince of tweens but anyways

Similar themes in Katawa shoujo and Interview with Monster GirlsAfter completing Katawa Shoujo and watching Interviews with Monster succubi, I have noticed many similar themes presented to the audience. First, When we are introduced to the snow succubus, the main theme that is presented about her and the fact she is a Demi human is that if we are different than everyone else it doesn’t define us as a person. This is the also the overlying theme of katawa shoujo that all the characters and Hisao has to learn about themselves. Also In Interviews with Monster succubi and katawa shoujo, we are shown the main cast of characters in tasteful ways. They both show us the good and bad of each character, and they aren’t presented as a pity piece saying how bad they have it but as a story of everyday life. Such is shown with the dullahan and Rin, they both have to make adjustments but in the end they are just everyday succubi. Rin has to wear pants while eating for modesty and Machi has to wear a backpack instead of the standard Japanese satchel to carry her head. Though these are only two examples, I believe you can easily compare both as very similar in character and theme. What do you guys think?

Japanese music threadI remember in one thread we used to discuss japanese music. Thanks to this thread I found out about Nomak and Mari Hamada who became some of my favorite artists. I noticed the thread does not exist anymore and I thought we should start another one now. Anons might appreciate it like I do.
