Does anyone else at this point where the only anime you have left to see are long running children's' shows, old mecha anime, unsubbed shit, indie shit, anime unavailable on the internet and future/upcoming releases? How do people stick to one medium when it's so limited and scarce?

>the west

That's the fucking bottom of the barrel of all media if you exclude 3DCGI.


i rewatch a lot of my favorite shows. certain episodes of gintama i rewatch for certain days of the year

i was never much into jrpgs, and while i liked visual novels i just never played many, so im able to fill the void of new anime with other mediums

i refuse to consume anime that doesnt interest me just because there's nothing else left. like another poster said i do occasionally find obscure stuff that flee under my radar but for the most part i'm finished with the categories and themes of anime that interest me most

>but dropped it halfway through because it was a bit too nonsensical for my taste.
I think if you didn't like the first half then you probably won't change your mind as the movie only gets weirder, for me the enjoyment came mostly from not knowing what could happen next and wondering what was going on all the time, it basically held my attention because of the silliness.

China should produce their own kind of animation (like they do in cgi, which makes sense as japan has outsourced much of their 3d animation to china I believe) and not copy something 1:1, remember all the fake toys like yu-gi-oh-cards from them?
In most cases you can see a clear difference between western and japanese animation, even Avatar while looking animeish was still clearly western. First anime were inspired by disney-animations, but even then you could tell that it had its own style that further evolved over many years, while chinese studios have been known before for picking something established and selling it as their own as it is. I would not measure quantity with quality, having more resources means it's also easier to produce knockoffs, or look at all the TripleA-games that are coming out with an enormous budget and a huge staff, they look so good yet most of them are so similar. Globalism has been changing the tide for a while though, if something becomes popular many want to get in on it, now the whole world is producing anime-style content like all those games that slap an anime-picture on their cover, which strips away the cultural aspect from what made them appealing in the first place. Reading your post it seems that you aquired your taste through these anime that you can now enjoy the chinese ones, and mostly because they are similar in many places.


>I like anime that offer an experience which you cannot get from any western show or movie.
these type of anime end up being too try-hard or end up going full nippon nationalist unless you're talking purely animation then there's still only a handful that fit that criteria

once you watch a few anime from every genre you're interested in they end up being all the same

A 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.

Who else enjoys japanese novels?

read mushoku tensei,don't fall for the best isekai evar! hype, it's good but the ending comes outta nowhere.

gonna watch spice and wolf then read the LN's.

I remember reading konosuba and No game no life many moons ago both good, use calibre for ebook management it's very convenient also for those who don't know you can send books to your kindle via email.

I also wanna read the katanagari LNs, maybe FLCL after that.


I'm still salty from the ending of Devil is a Part-timer.

WILL/TRUE ("Violet Evergarden the Movie" Theme Song)


Gawr Gura (Small Shark) Sings Cruel Angels Thesis


saya no uta has a really good OST, great VN too.

a great banger from OG berserk, very comfy.

dorohedoro has a really good soundtrack all of it is worth a listen

MIA also has a good OST in general something I would check out.

I though of posting monogatori and NHK too but everyone here probably already knows about it, really am an idiot posting to a dead thread at page 3, no ones gonna be reading this.

What 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.

I never actually got around to watching the Sailor Moon R movie, is it as good as people say it is?

Definitely Madoka. The problems that arises from it are the fanbases hype of it being some dark subversion of the magic succubus genre. Though it is a subversion, it's not nearly as dark as they claim it will be. And even in sad scenes they still retain a cutesy atmosphere (opening song, and other scenes). Kyuubey is supposed to be this dark figure, but his actions aren't that evil, and in fact he is quite kind for what he does. Madoka also has other problems not only with its hype… plot holes, characters, and other writing issues. The art style looks really cool though!


This is literally just an Evangelion rip off with a shitty twist ending.

definitely, I remember it had some good ideas towards the middle until it got boring again. I hated the white-haired one who always acted like an angel and then betrayed the fat one, I got the message but everything felt too much like some telenovela-relationship-drama.


This, not the 90% but sometimes i droped animes after watching 1 or 2 episodes.

>Youjo Senki movie

I think I was bored early on but when the man trapped inside a loli's body started speaking about his hatred for commies and destroyed their capital I am now legally obligated to give this movie a 10/10 for basedness alone. if you watched the anime it's more of that with the MC dominating the battlefield, getting more frontline work, coming up with a plan to escape frontline work and have that plan backfire. the movie is just fun, I think that's the best way to put it. the plot is the same but the execution is good so I say it's worth a watch

>ACCA 13

in a world without niggers the entire world is united under a single royal family and governed by a colossal organization known as ACCA. ACCA runs everything, ACCA is everywhere, ACCA knows when you sleep and when you do bad things and largely considered to be the reason why the empire hasn't gone to shit for the past 100 years. There is also a congress but they have no rights (the empire is still an absolute monarchy) and no one gives a shit about them through the anime.

there is just one problem and that is a region that is inhabited by wizards known as I don't remember. You see all niggers have been eradicated by our glorious king at least 100 years ago but these wizards have turned their skin black and in order to save their mana they get new citizens by opening portals to alternative dimensions and abduct young boys to train them to be wizards after they have completed their training they are considered to be a "brother". this brotherhood aims to control the world but they don't want to lose brothers so instead of an all out war they want to puppet a king and control the empire that way. the current king is 100 years old and the successor is a barely legal retard (who is hellbent on removing ACCA and the congress for the lulz) but instead of taking the easy way and making this retard a puppet they decide to take the hard(fun) way and organize a coup around an illegitimate older male. in case anyone asks the reason for their insane wealth is alchemists turning sand into arable land and oil.

the story follows the vice inspector of the inspection department of ACCA which is shockingly in charge of rooting out corruption. this vice inspector may or may not be an illegitimate heir for the royal family.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

This is going to be a moreso-than-usual bloggish and self-indulgent post, so apologies in advance.

I tried watching New Game and Stella no Mahou. Here are my unrefined thoughts:

Full disclosure: I really can't stand 'game-making' as a premise. I'm not into video games and I did programming for work for a number of years, which has the effect of ruining my immersion and/or reminding me of the workplace. I know other people love the game-making premise, but it doesn't appeal to me at all. Also every person I've ever encountered in the workplace who had a 'gamedev' background was particularly insufferable in some way, and unfortunately this taints my view of things as well. I'm not judging anyone else for liking the game-making premise, I just really don't like it. I'll probably drop both of these anime due to this, but I'm at least sampling them.

Stella no Mahou:
Somewhat ironically, the production quality is doujin-anime level (read: bad). It's a SoL so this is no big deal, but should be mentioned here regardless.

Really ugly character designs (my opinion, sorry!).
Feels like a formulaic SoL (not necessarily a bad thing).

Finished the first episode and I can tell I simply won't enjoy this much. There's really nothing of note here beyond the premise itself. I'm dropping it with no hard feelings. If you enjoyed it, great, but I know I won't enjoy it enough to justify the time spent. Now I am going to give New Game a chance.

New Game:
I have a weird interest in Japanese workplace culture, so I will likely watch more of this than I would of another equivalent-enjoyment anime. Also, I see these characters plastered all over the internet so at least this will allow me to develop some emotional association with them, for better or worse.

Wow this is really similar to a real-life workplace. This is just reminding me of work. I don't know how anyone with an office job IRL would find leisurely watching this enjoyable. With episode titles such as "Salary is Just a Loophole in the Law to Lower Wages", how could I not feel relaxed while watching!
Oh Christ they're going out to lunch together on her first day and stuff like that. Wow this really is anxiety-attack material.

Just finished the WN of mushoku tensei, it's pretty good but don't fall for the muh best isekai meme; all the books are good except the last one, the ending is so bad, it's sudden I though it was gonna go on for a while but it just ended after it started to get good, It was so anti climatic too.

personality : sylphy > god > eris
body: eris > god > slyphy
overall: sylphy > god >> eris

overall I like it would recommend but read the LN not the WN, it's plainly better.


I just watched Ne zha. I don't usually watch movies let alone Chinese ones but I heard this was the second highest grossing film in China ever so I thought I would watch it. It was basically like a Chinese Pixar movie.

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.
His kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1363912222/pull-stay?ref=6ttd71

Stealing anime manga and hentai wasn't enough now normies want to steal the hikkikomori lifestyle too.

>Lol I'm such a hikky but I still go on walks with my dog and daddy drives me to places LMAO


He's obviously so desperate about not wanting to go back to wageslavery he has to stoop down to kiss normie ass for advertising favors.


if you pull your head out of your ass you'd also notice how OP's hikki guy also goes out to buy food or has a family member drive him to a food store. and i imagine 99% of hikkis in japan also go out of their room for food or have family members do it for them. and walking a dog doesn't make one not a hikki since going out for food already break your retarded rule of definitions.
how the fuck do you expect to eat?
you grow vegetable in your room?
stop being such a whining bitch


is he a fucking 4channer? a /jp/eople?

Nigga you can't be a Hikkikomori that takes walks and goes outside, that's literally an oxymoron, it's like saying that you're a High School NEET or a perfectly healthy cancer patient.

Being a Hikkikomori means being so withdrawn that you can't literally leave your room or talk with anyone besides a few words with your parents, that "Hikki that goes outside" shit was made popular by Welcome to the NHK and shit like that, there are real actual Hikkis that spend all their lives inside like the guy OP is talking about.

This "Hikki that goes outside" phenomenom is just an umbrella term for fucking normies that are a bit shy and think that spending 4 days inside makes them social outcasts and shut ins.


>cool and hip hikkikomori lifestyle!
>just like the anime you like so much!
>give me money baka niwaka and gaijin

I'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)

I hope when I die I'll go to 2D heaven.

Strongly disagree. Especially nowadays, most shows and everything simply can't exist without cute females.


it's no worse than western media that can't create anything without multiculturalism and political correctness, I prefer the way anime does it personally


Try Koihime Musou unless you hate cute stuff

I sleep with mine on the other side of the bed and never touch it cause I'm super afraid of getting it dirty.


where did you the actual pillow from? I see walmart has some and so does amazon, but I want to get one of best quality

I ordered pillow from animedakimakurapillow(dot)com. It was costing quite a fortune. If you're planning to by pillow case as well, remember to buy same size.


Not him, but I got two 75cm fluffy pillows from Walmart and then wrapped them in two wool blankets to tightly fill a 150cm case, The wool adds a lot of weight and warmth. The pillows cost about $8 each


Not the guy you're replying to, but the faggot who owns the furry one.

I have a CMD9150, it is (150cmx50cm which is the American standard, not Japanese.) I keep hearing that Dakimakuri sells a really good pillow that is a bit more expensive than the Comodo ones, but I hear it is much better. I heard that from a dakimakuri shill server, but I trust that it's pretty good.

Good luck and godspeed.

Okay, I just finished the the series.
and I have to ask - is this a joke? Like a big decades long meme? I think this was the worst anime I've ever seen. A pseudo-philosophical LARP. Like does it actually have a point? A meaning? Beause I think I just witnessed someone's acid trip.

Unironically is the worldwide fame a LARP? Or is it like with the emperor's new clothes, where nobody mentions that he's actually naked?

What the acual fuck? Either I'm a brainlet retard or I'm the only sane person on earth - but what the fuck did I just watch?

It reminds me of those old french psychological art films… What a fucking waste of time…

So the wonderful autists at 2ch have been harassing another 3D loli this week. This succubus on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun, and of course some pervs stumbled upon it and asked her to do more, which she did. Well concerntrolls of course found the thread and told her they're "going to inform her classmates" and now the succubus wants to shinitai.


>This (3d loli) on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun
why do succubi do this
>not linking the videos
why do wizards do this


>This succubus on YT posts videos of herself pooping and peeing for fun
I thought this only happened in doujins. What the fuck
