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?

Post ITT when you finish an anime, and write something about it. Can be anything from brief unrefined feelings to long formal reviews.

This thread can also be helpful for people looking for things to watch.

i watched this and it was ok. probably gonna go through it again eventually. already looking forward to SBR and whatever the part 9 manga is gonna be called (i heard JOJOLANDS but could be bullshit).



I watched Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu (including the Taiwan special), also known as Minami Kamakura High School succubi Cycling Club. Here are my thoughts:

The title of this anime accurately describes the content. There's minimal 'filler' material in here – the screentime is nearly always focused on cycling in some way. I appreciate anime that consistently stick to their theme, unlike so many other highschool anime which devolve into formulaic episodes unrelated to the show's main selling point. Minami Kamakura Jitensha-bu could be described as formulaic as well, in the sense that the storyboard is what you'd expect for a show about novice cyclists, but at least you won't have to suffer through a culture-festival episode or a typical beach episode. I was apprehensive about the highschool setting but thankfully there's barely any classroom screentime in this. As you might expect, various landmarks in the Kamakura region are featured throughout the cycling activities. It does sometimes feel like a thinly veiled tourism advertisement, albeit not overly so and my enjoyment was never impeded by this.

I liked the brief live-action segments that play at the end of each episode. They mostly consist of various cycling-related conversations in a bike shop. These live-action segments are both informative and cute and I enjoyed them, especially because they seemed endearingly loosely scripted. This anime is fairly educational for cycling – although I already knew much of what is explained regarding bicycles, it was still entertaining to see things rehashed. This show does a good job of teaching the viewer about cycling while still being entertaining. This could serve as a kids' show. There's minimal sexualization, and the character interaction is very simplistic and straightforward such that a child could understand it easily. This anime's characters are quite tropey and there's barely any character development.

Minami Kamakura Jitensha-bu comes up short in the production-value department – it could pass as being 15 years older than its actual production year. The character designs are retro, and CG is sometimes used to animate the cycling scenes. The landscape and setting do sometimes look nice though. I found the voice acting mediocre and was also disappointed by the crummy low-budget souPost too long. Click here to view the full text.



I watched both the Haikara-san ga Tooru movies, also known as Here Comes Miss Modern. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about a tomboy who is pressured into an arranged marriage with a half-jap soldier in the Japan army. The story takes place during the first couple decades of the 20th century and has a socio-historic flavour that some viewers may find appealing. It involves a lot of social issues in Taisho-era Japan, mainly involving female gender roles. It is somewhat interesting from a sociological perspective, although the plot velocity and runtime constraints limit the depth to which these themes could be explored. Even so, someone interested in historical Japanese society might appreciate this anime. These movies also incorporate the political nature of marriage in the writing – I found this to be refreshing, as the typically overly romanticized nature of marriage in fiction often doesn't reflect reality. I appreciated this lifelike treatment of marriage, and it meshed well with the other social themes. That said, romance is still a dominant motif in this anime, as is the relationship drama that comes along with it.

This feels like a shoujo-demographic anime, albeit not exclusively so. As you might assume from the title, the story focuses very much on the female MC. The primary male love interest lacks character depth – he's really underdeveloped. In fact the entire cast is tropey in characterization, but I don't think that could have been avoided given the runtime. The story actually reminded me of theatrical works like Shakespeare in the sense that it involved themes such as love and loss, love polygons, tragedy and reunification; it was all quite reminiscent of theatrical writing. Haikara-san ga Tooru feels like it could be a stage play instead of movie anime. Ironically however, I found the scriptwriting itself poor – many scenes in this could have been enhanced by a better script.

Similarly to theatrical writing, the story of Haikara-san ga Tooru demands a lot of suspension of disbelief. It is filled with convenient coincidences used to move the plot along and it felt crude and hamfisted as a result. The second movie in particular is quite bad in this regard and I enjoyed it less than the first. I also found the pacing of the first movie better calibrated than the second. Post too long.

This is a highly underrated, extremely fun series that can occasionally get pretty sad and heavy. No one talks about this hidden gem enough.

It's so much better than that shitty movie that came out earlier this year.


It's so hard to go back to the earlier two seasons before Momoko is introduced and Hana-Chan aged herself up.


This show's hype died down.

I think he means to try to attract a MMD kitsune by leaving out fried tofu and visiting Inari shrines.

does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
this has been happening to me a lot lately and i have no idea how to deal with it

My favorite school anime is Watamote,so no


everyone is sweet and polite to watamote-chan she just doesn't see it


Fiction is supposed to be idealistic so no I don't mind.

It does make me wish I could've been an exchange student.

I especially like the variety of clubs shown. I'd like to believe at some well-funded private school some of the more exotic ones exist together. If I were a teacher, I'd definitely be the advisor for the computing club despite having no aptitude for it myself.


>does the positive portrayal of school in a lot of anime ever get under your skin to the point where it's annoying/upsetting?
I was homeschooled growing up, but sometimes seeing school animes where the characters have friends and have fun outside makes me seethe in jealousy.


The heavy emphasis for school in anime is because it's the only world Japanese kids know which is due to boomers protesting lax changes in the education system in the 80s, there was a screencap I saw which I don't possess anymore that went over it in more detail. Also Japanese school life isn't terrible like it is in America and eastern Europe or whatever example you wish to use. Also notice how anime is escapism while Japanese film is usually somber or depressing, and if it's even a happy family there's no sugar-coating and romanticization of that happiness.

I know there's a draw thread on /hob/ for posting any drawing you want, but I thought we might want to have a draw thread here specifically for anime requests. Post your requests and/or anime-style drawings. I'm a drawfig myself so at least one of your requests will be fulfilled.

I miss old anime communities. Used to be many of them. Now almost all are gone or abandoned.

*Things that determine what things you have access to, determine how a subculture develops.


I was never part of a community, even in loose imageboard type communities i felt more like an outsider, and I'm too paranoid or just antisocial to really engage in a community overall, no matter what it's about. Also I get dumber and careless while the others seem to get more hardcore.

I think there is enough space for high functioning autists, tryhards, the real of the real etc.
But I'm mutating to a lowfunctioning sperg that can't even remember names or events of Anime or Jap stuff I'm still into while others seem to be even more and more experts.

Think it's time to stop and embrace the solitude.


are you me? literally me


Fan service has always been a huge part of anime. After all the demographic at one point in time was young Japanese men.


I miss the old days of falling down rabbit holes of obscure websites simply by googling a topic. Before the internet was ultra-commercialized I used to visit dozens of different websites a day for just one topic. But now using the internet in the 2020s to interact with real people on niche topics feels like turning on the TV in the mid 2000s hoping for quality entertainment.

If I start cussing in English in real life, a decent chunk of people will understand and be displeased with me. If I start cussing in Japanese in real life, nobody will understand and thus will not be displeased with me even though I'm cussing as hard as possible. That alone is reason enough to suppose that Japanese is superior and that I should learn it.

Any goals for 2023?


Found this the other day, feels like I'm actually making progress.


Read a book on Japanese history, all in Japanese. Shouldn't be that far away for me.
Why not anki instead?


I am sort of stuck at a certain stage in learning japanese, I can get an idea of what a japanese person is talking about with a little context if I don't know the words exactly, I can get through say a japanese food review or something similarly casual in japanese and not have too much of an issue. I think my biggest problem is lack of vocabulary


for now theres only 1 % of immigrants in japan but there could be more next years. I think it is problematic 1nd will degrade japan. who agrree?

I mean if an epidemic breaks out that starts killing all the japs we'll be thankful there's a few mixed race ones there to slow it down some. I mean a fungus killed off all our bananas about 70 years ago, imagine if the island responsible for all the anime and porn got fungicided.


A society that is ruled by laws can welcome anyone who is willing to agree to follow those laws. If they are doing things that are disruptive to your society that is a problem with your legal system that you can fix by simply outlawing whatever they are doing that is harmful.



why did you enter a thread of people who care? do by chance care a little?


No, I don't think i will.
