Let me present to you the best anime opening:

Gundam Wing



Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water


Here's an anime I watched when I was sedated out of my gourd on antipsychotics after being released from the mental hospital. Dragon Ball Super and the accompanying threads on /a/ is also a great experience if you chemically inactivate most of your brain. I'm in a sort of hell now where I am too sedated to do anything productive but not sedated enough to be perpetually stoned while watching anime for mexicans and little succubi.

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?

What are you doing right now to enjoy the series?

sux that touhou discussion is completely dead


Makes sense though, since the franchise itself is dead. Or at the least it's been on the decline for a decade now.


I'm going to try Touhou Mother again. It's an RPGmaker fangame in the style of MOTHER 2 & 3. It was broken a few years ago where items wouldn't work in combat so no healing items or special attacks made it impossible to beat.

It's not, unless you are avoiding the places where the discussion has centralized. And if true fans are talking less of it, it's only to lay low as there's been an influx of undesireables taking up interest in Gensokyo. Ironically these types wouldn't even be able to tell you what Gensokyo is if you asked. Hopefully these denigraters will find something else to soil.
Bad opinion and also a gay opinion.


Truly the games aren't that good, even the fighting ones which are a step up. You don't see anyone praising how great they are, be it because of the genre or whatever, since they end up very similar in gameplay at the point where you play one of them and the rest of the next 10 iterations only for the characters,music,etc. since it gets boring quickly.
I've played all of the PC-98 ones partially- hrtp is a different game which is nice, but the other 4 feel like they're one game but with more stages and characters. Scarlet devil? still the same but with better graphics. Even in MoF i still felt the same. Only much later it gets fresh enough, by Double Spoiler you get to do more than just shooting 95% of the time. (again not couting fighting ones). I had a lot of fun with the touhoumon romhacks however, especially puppet play enchanced.


I have been a fan of Touhou since 2008 and I always thought of it in the least serious terms possible. My introduction was Ronald McDonald Insanity and geddan and I have been inclined to think of Touhou in terms of memes ever since. It doesn't bother me in the slightest if the only thing sustaining interest in the west is a Sr Pelo animation. From shitposts the western touhou fandom was born and into shitposts it returns.

What should be the best measures that we should take to gatekeep anime has hard as it get?
Remember, if you don't believe in gatekeeping, you are a normalgroid.

Some measures that I suggest are:
-Knowing in deep a lot about an anime, visual novel, light novel, novel, manga or game in particular.
-Having a decent knowledge about the medium.
-Being very invested into at least one work.
-Being very invested at least in one fandom.

Is not neccesary to have all these things, but at least one. What more should be added?

I think its really hard to gate keep anime/manga nowadays because there are people (including big names) that actively try to market it to as many normies as possible, and actively fight against gate keeping


I agree


Just enjoy what you enjoy and let others enjoy what they enjoy. Suggesting measures for gatekeeping is retarded. Someone who's actually into anime shouldn't learn about specifics of the medium solely for the purpose of gatekeeping.


the only thing youre gatekeeping is yourself, if you know japanese you can go elsewhere and discuss it in japanese

Anyone watching megalobox season 2? It's really good. I love the art style, it's retro but done with more polish and they make really good use of color. The story is also much better than season 1 imo, more well done drama that hits you right in the feels.


what feels


Echoing >>36952. The writing hasn't leveled up much and still goes from incredibly obvious (Chief), to utterly obnoxious (everything Sachiko and Nanbu). I suppose Mac's circumstances hold potential to be impactful, especially when Joe really starts getting involved, but so far the only thing I'm really feeling is sad for Joe losing his beard and more mediocre boxing.

It's better than S1, which itself wasn't terrible, but only just barely.

I'm watching the Shaman King remake right now, its pretty shitty so far. The animation is super stiff and the pacing is way too rushed, I'm not saying that the OG shaman king is a masterpiece, but its a way better shonen than this adaptation makes it out to be.
I only keep watching because I want to see if they adapt the ending properly.


Same problem with Record of Ragnarok anime. Really stiff and low-framerate animation for a FIGHTING anime.

Unfortunately, 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

Fate extra is so good despite being on netflix though, it has become one of my favorites


Add angels of death and shiki to that list and it's masterful

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.

I can't watch Kaiji cause I read the manga and the anime is so slow. Pic is from Strongest Man Kurosawa.


I watched the pilot and the first episode of Nichijou, the succubi are cute, but holy shit is it corny.

Definitely could never see myself watching this again.

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.

Flavor of the month meme shows like Uzaki, Tejina, Nagatoro, ect.


You would think people would know to expect the mid point twist of that studio's projects by now.

My main complaint was I didn't like the mech designs and most of the emotional and relationship drama didn't work for me because most of the characters are too stunted.
Stuck around because I knew some sort of twist was coming and actually enjoy it somewhat, the animation, and because Zero Two is just interesting enough to carry the rest of the cast of soggy briskets.


Apparently, the new Sailor Moon Crystal movie is really bad.


> I remember the main character just yelling in the middle of the street at some points, and I laughed because it was so ridiculous
God I hate shit like that. It's when melodrama is taken to the utter extreme. When characters start acting like little kids throwing an unhinged tantrum that's when I check out.

You have the post order mixed up my friend.

I really don't care about shitchan and the main purpose of me making a thread there is so that my review will get included in the /a/ archives.

You should have seen what an absolute dumpster fire my Yuri on Ice review thread turned into.

>You should have seen what an absolute dumpster fire my Yuri on Ice review thread turned into.
Took a quick peak myself, typical of nu-/a/, I don't think a single person actually read your review. Thread is either people crying "tldr", just seeing the title and posting something about the show irrelevant of the OP, and of course the majority of posts just begin diehards arguing over some irrelevant issue no one gives a fuck about beside themselves. /a/ is just a dumpsterfire in general, frankly its just awful to read 99% of the time. The shitposting can be funny though, if there's one good thing about the shounenshit generals its the stupid memes they crank out on a regular basis.

Sometimes I will search the /a/ archives with keyword searches of anime I have seen in order to read what others have said about it. This is best done for less-popular shows because more-popular shows tend to attract shitposting and lower-quality discussion, and also just because of the general scarcity of discussion for less-popular anime. For example, I recently read the seasonal Prince of Stride threads, and they were surprisingly tolerable by shitchan standards.

Anyway, for the sake of people like me who also do this, I like to ensure that my own reviews get incorporated into the archives.

If anyone has better anime discussion platforms to suggest then I'd be happy to hear about it.

Boku dake ga Inai Machi, a rather mediocre mystery series. I'll try to make this relatively quick since its not really unique enough to warrant a full on review, however I will go into the characters and plot in some depth. Spoilers will be in spoiler text below.

Animation/arstyle, its generic and absolutely FULL of cgi. It's a modern anime TV series, there is no creativity or risk taking at all. Digital aftereffects with CG run the show, and its not well done at all. There isn't a single sakuga moment in this series, nor even an attempt at one. Knowing that, I must assume that the budget was not great at all. That being said - that doesn't excuse just painfully boring it is too look at, and how little they tried to do anything differently. I can honestly say I didn't bother to take a single screenshot while watching this series, the ones I posted are purely for this review.

The soundtrack was pretty standard for the most part, you know the usual orchestra stuff you've heard many times before. Its not poorly done, but you won't ever think "yea that sounds like the Boku dake ga Inai Machi OST" even once in your life. Its modern anime through and through.

Plot is where the only possible enjoyment could be had in this series. Yet it wasn't that great either, it tried for something great - but unfortunately just ended up rather predicable and not very believable at all. First off we have a time travel mechanic; which I generally hate because it means nothing can be meaningful when you can just go back in time and change it anyways. This mechanic is tied to no real rules, so its basically just a whenever the fuck its convenient for the author to have it happen. The villain and murderer of the series could be easily guessed within 3 episodes, and there is no other real potential opposition to that assumption. So effectively you are just stuck waiting for the obvious reveal during the many episodes leading to that, and it should surprise literally no one when it happens. Both the mechanic and the genre are frankly just poorly implemented, maybe if you've never seen a mystery series or time travel before this sereies, it might be interesting for you.

Anyways, so Satoru the MC goes back in time to grade 5 to save an assortment of people from death. As the MC became a child I was expecting to hear of some difficulty in acting as one again, in order to not draw attention to his being a 30 year old mind in a Post too long.

I have conducted a thorough analysis of anime from the year 2016. The primary purpose of this analysis is to identify works which have artistic merit, and to classify the nature of that artistic merit. Secondarily, my intent here is to rank the works in terms of their superiority in various categories. This will allow for comparison with other surveys of 2016 anime. This analysis is an expression of my own personal opinions and did not involve input from anyone else. I did this for my own intellectual and personal satisfaction, but I also hope that others may find it interesting or useful. At the very least, maybe this will generate some interesting discussion. Additionally, if you're looking for anime to watch, you can peruse through the specific categories I've provided to identify works that are likely to suit your tastes. 

Only anime which started airing in 2016 are considered here. Meaning that anime for which the first season aired before 2016 are not considered (ex. neither Hibike Euphonium nor Love Live are candidates here). The considered anime are evaluated on the basis of all seasons that have aired (not just the first season in 2016). Movies are not included unless they are related to a TV anime (ex. Bungou Stray Dogs). I am conducting reviews for other years using this same system. Annual reviews are typically done as soon as the year ends, but I believe my methodology here is superior for conducting reviews of years retrospectively. Furthermore, classifying the year's best works only by season/genre I find is an ineffective method for identifying meritorious works, so I've included more-specific categories. 

Categories and their results are listed below. Winning titles for each category are separated by commas, with the superior titles being listed first. For the genre categories I've provided two answers (the winning title followed by the runner up). However, polls for anime of the season and anime of the year typically list many top candidates in their results, so I've followed a similar procedure with my results here. For the anime of the season and year results, I've listed the top 5 candidates in order of superiority, with the winning title listed first and the progressively lesser titles listed afterwards.

Regarding the genre results, there are a couple important details:
Note: titles are classified by their superiority with respect to the stated genre alone, not overall quality (for example: x anime is a Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

I actually like Aikatsu! I'm still working on the very long first season though.

Dream Festival is very similar to Aikatsu. They both even use the same outfit-card mechanic.

This isn't shitchan. Also, it's very common for idol anime to use CG for the dancing/singing scenes.


If you’re referring to his use of “the absolute state” then I’m going to remind you the idol poster is calling shit kino.
