Have you ever gotten into an anime or manga just because of one specific character or characters? Did you stick around long enough to see through it, or did you drop it once you grew bored?

A year ago she sent me that popular video of Chika dancing. "This is me", she added, to which I replied saying "no, that's not you. You're not that cute and you don't know how to dance."
Now whenever I see this 2d succubus I remember her, and that chat.


who is "she"?

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 remember watching animes on tv.

Jesus christ this anime is painful to watch. It seems everytime it gets interesting shit writing ruins it. Currently about to start episode 15.


Can you describe this dumpster fire in details?
All i know about it is that series loved by ironic weeb crowd.
And has a certain hysterical fat guy related plotline (holy shit he's even eating on a show cover, some characters just hated by their creators).
How bad does it get?


I remember dropping it. It's just a 24 episodes of fanservice imitating doggy-style fucking.


I dropped it after like 5-6 episodes or so. I actually thought watching it again when i see your post, dropped it again.

There's really no such thing as an "obscure anime", unless it's genuine lost media brought to no one's attention. If there are otaku's that drool over the most obscure old-as-mammoth's shit bargain bin tokusatsu films that even the film directors forgot existed, chances are your precious "hidden gem" you watched on kissanime is not so obscure and special after all.

Shiki is super good, and it's actually on Hulu buy I have never heard a person other than me mention that it exists. Struck a deep chord with me because it dwells heavily on death and people's reactions/philosophies about it and that's the biggest thing I'm scared of.

Not sure how "obscure" I'd say it is. Level 4/5 maybe? I know most of the stuff in 4 and above and not much below it


I wanted to like it, but didn't.
The premise I heard was nice, how humans can also act like monsters and how both sides could be cruel and animalistic. But I think anime prolonged too long
-too many characters whose names I forgot
-too much attention on figuring out what was going on
Wish it was more focused on the premise. It had its golden moments yes, but I wouldn't rewatch it.


> I have never heard a person other than me mention that it exists.
So you don't lurk in anime communities or this board much then.
It isn't obscure at all and is brought up whenever anime involving darker plots or vampires are the subject.

While I liked the show it had major pacing problems in the middle that dragged down the watching experience for me.


It's one of the most well known horror anime around anon, it's just not discussed much because horror isn't a popular genre in the medium

Is anyone else exceedingly bothered by the fact that they forget anime they've seen? It's like losing an important part of yourself. All these worlds and characters, even if they're fictional, feel dear to me, yet I forget what happened to them and sometimes their existence as a whole. Of course, you can re-watch anime (I'm on a spree of doing that right now), but it still upsets me.

It's as if these shows are disposable information to fill my time with, and can subsequently be discarded once I've "consumed" them. I despise my brain for failing to even roughly recollect the events of an episode I saw a month ago, yet recalling that time a random kid in elementary school made a sarcastic comment about my cellphone on the landing of the northeast stairwell, between the third and second floor. Do I have a normalshit brain that marks memories pertaining to fictional stories as unimportant and consequently, readily deletes them? How can I remember the series I've seen better? As autistic as it sounds, I've resorted to taking notes on anime and reviewing them at irregular intervals, but even that ends up in me only remembering the general plot of the show, with the finer details as well as recollections of the sounds and visuals falling through the cracks.

i also dont remember what i recently watched but for different reasons. i look too hard into it, searching for meaning or important messages when theres none,and i sometimes take this to schizo levels. for example,i didnt enjoy kakegurui too much because i was focused on the supposed moral lessons the caracthers were trying to convey,when they are actually just a bunch of crazy gambling addicts. i projected a lot of stuff i was thinking about in tokyo ghoul as well,witch distorted the experience the author intended. its cool to make connections and think about the caracthers,but looking for depth when there is none will make you stop paying attention to the show,and keep you thinking about an imaginary meaning that doesnt exist.


It usually takes me years to forget the details of both good and bad anime.
The one thing that I have trouble remembering is names, both of characters and of Japanese titles.
So I occasionally look through the streaming sites I use (why download when HD streaming is just as good and I only ever watch something once every few years anyway) reading the description of a anime not sure if I have watched it but have forgotten the name of it, or if I haven't and it is just super similar to something I watched. This leads me to loading up the first ep only to find within the first 2 or 3 minutes for all the memories of the show to come flooding back in and me remembering that the show was actually pretty mediocre and not really worth a re-watch.
Last show for me to do that with was C³ (Cube×Cursed×Curious) but since I couldn't remember the plot details I watched it over. Then I was reminded why I couldn't remember the plot details, because the show was super lite on plot to begin with, and what little was there was cliche and lame.

I also have trouble keeping track of which gundam shows and movies I have already watched because after all these years the names sort of blend together and the plots, story arcs, and just about everything else is very similar.
Back in the 00s I actually had a physical to watch list and log book kind of thing. Gundam had it's own page, lol.

Now I don't really keep any sort of physical or digital record. If I remember it then unless it is really good and I am in the mood for it I probably wont watch it. If I don't remember it, or barely remember the details because it has been years and it sounds interesting then I will watch it.


Lot of people touching on this, but it bears mentioning directly. Memory is about connections. The more angles you've got to grapple with a fact, the more likely you are to stumble upon it,, refreshing your memory, and the more likely you are to make your way to any other fact, from it. It's very difficult to remember things in a vacuum. It's even harder to retain it. We're not computers, we weren't made to handle unstructured nonsense. If we can't meaningfully tie things together, trying to remember them is a fool's errand, and only at all possible with continued effort.

It's very hard to remember a show if you're just along for the ride, following the plot. It's all A->B->C->D and so on. That's an ordered set, one thing leads to another. It's a very fragile arrangement, and there are only so many ways you can arrive at, say, C, and only so many paths from it: remembering it does not refresh your memory about much else. That's why late-game revelations about characters are so easily recalled. It's stronger than an introduction, because it forces you to go back and reexamine everything about that character. It connects to everything, and you will keep bringing it up because it splits every event and interaction of that character into two: before you were in the know, and were just glimpsing at the table, and after you've gotten to take a look at your own cards. It's virtually impossible not to think of, it's always just a step or two away.

I've a remarkably shoddy memory, myself, so it's not hard to tell the difference between when I'm actually engaging with a subject, and when it's just going in one ear and out the other. Some series I remember very vividly, and once, with GITS arise, I remembered so little of it I accidentally rewatched the whole thing before, in the very end, realizing I'd seen it before.

Now, if you know the characters, you can smell an out-of-character moment from a mile away. That takes you out of it, makes you refocus, think about what's throwing him off, right? Pause if you have to. Rewatch the scene, and let it sink in, if you've found a gamechanger: you will remember that.
If you know the plot, the characters, their goals, you can start weaving a pretty intricate web, thinking about their relations, what they're trying to get out of each other, how they view each other. Add the themes and you've got a whole new dimension to it, and then there's the inspirations for the work, and others thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>ITT: OP is me but actually capable of putting this into words

Seriously though, I feel you. It's one of the few comforts I have, and I actually keep a list of the ones I've watched, but when I look at it a lot of times I see something only only remember the premise of it and a hazy idea of the ending. A lot of my watchlist is just things I want to re-watch.


95% of the time I watch anime completely drunk. I have only rewatched one anime in my life. Renkin san-kyuu magical pokaan forty two times now. I have no interest watching most anime more than once and I ALWAYS wait until the anime has come out on bluray subbed in 1080p unless its an old anime so I am always watching it at its best quality uncensored with any animation errors corrected.

oh beyblade, i never got around to watch the anime itself but me and my brother loved the beyblades toys. Im not sure if all of them were in metal, but our was and we loved them alot. Im sure i've them laying around somewhere.


First beyblade season was kinda memorable for me.
It was like a mesh of 90s style with the early 2000s animation tech.

I don't know, I have no interest in meeting real people, I like being alone, I don't like to worry about other people, online is the best because I can just turn people off if I'm not interested in interacting, if you had people in real life then you couldn't control them, they might annoy you when you don't feel like socializing, or maybe pester you and ask you to do things for them, it's just not appealing

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

Just finished

not bad


I really liked it, the characters, the scenery, the music, it was so inviting and relaxing.

I really wish that more people knew about this show, but I guess it does have its stigmas.


It started getting a little tedious around season four.


I got a secret I can't tell.
Guess I'd better cast my spell.


What do you mean by "tedious"? Did you not enjoy it? Doremi is a character driven show. The succubi, the classmates, the witches, wizards, parents. I'm hoping you didnt read that outdated guide that hypes up doremi as a depressing show

Satou would about 37 if we base it around the time the original Welcome to the NHK book was published. If they made another book or series that revisited his life in the present day what do you think it would be about?

>If they made another book or series that revisited his life in the present day what do you think it would be about?

Satou can no longer afford a single apartment and has to share an apartment with a bunch of smelly, middle-aged fuck ups. Misaki met some autist guy with rich parents and moved in with him. Satou hasn't seen in her in over a decade and lost all contact. He now works minimum wage and drinks soju every evening to knock himself out. He has become too numb and deteriorated to even care anymore. His parents died and he barely showed any emotion at their funeral. He is no longer capable of feeling pity for himself, nor any other strong emotion that would lead to him acting out of his routine. It's a 12 episode anime series and in the last 2 episodes, Satou gets to know he has terminal cancer and less than a year to live. In the last episode you see Satou walking down an alley with a bottle of booze in his hand. It rains heavily and he's soaked to the bone. He stumbles and falls. He lays on the pavement, turns face up, and wants to take a sip from the bottle, but realizes it broke on impact. He nods his head back and closes his eyes as the rain cover the emerging tears. The camera shows his decrepit body on the street, then slowly pans out and up until it reaches a 3rd floor window in some apartment complex. The camera zooms into the window and you can see Misaki riding the dick of her autismo sugar daddy.

The end.


but what about yamazaki?


Yamazaki is still the fucking normalfag traitor that forgot about 2D the nanosecond he got a girlfriend,he deserves death.

But it's probably doing ok.


The only reason the show is popular is for it not being a wish-fullfilment series.
