>passionate enough about gaming as a hobby to seek out more particular niche titles

who the fuck cares about video games niche titles when all consist of the same mind numbing low iq tasks that can only trick the reward system of retards with an unwavering will to lose their time in the most moronic unsatisfying possible way.
Going on walks is a better past time than videogames.

Read the whole thing a while back, it's pretty claustrophobic, from an observers view he often seemed to make a huge deal out of rather petty things, the mother gets bashed a whole deal yet seems to be doing quite a lot for him. No news that people living cramped like that tend to drive eachother insane but he comes off as extremely selfish at times.

For all those who have lost hope in true love IRL, let's have a must have-tier Eroges thread. Wizard, NEET, Hikky and Otaku related are preferred.

I'll start with Otama! Otaku Nakama wa Chikkoi Mania and Semen Security 2009. They were really fun games.

What would fellow wizards recommend?

Pick a game that looks easy on vndb, preferably one that has a modern day setting and lots of slice of life scenes and then have a look at the screenshots. If you can read the majority of words in every screenshot that the game has then it's probably going to be an easy one. The easiest way to read is using yomichan/rikaisama and the clipboard inserter extension so that you can display all the text from the text hooker on your web browser and look up any word you don't know instantly.

https://itazuraneko.neocities.org/learn/guide.html#_Useful%20Learning%20Tools

Have a look through here if you want to know how to set it up. The most important thing though is to keep persevering. For me, learning the secret of what cute 2d succubi are actually saying is one of the few things I actually enjoy doing so I just keep trying no matter how hard it gets.

That's the best anime war movie imo, can't see what's not to like. Maybe it's not as full of mono no aware, as their best works like mai mai miracle and stuff. Could just be too influenced by outside praise souring the watch. It's no rape of nanking, but it's definitely not a 3/10. With how few anime films there is to watch, i think it stands out as a very solid and refreshing passion project. Sorry to hear you hated it.
>>33994
I really enjoyed the ova, but couldn't get into the main series or the manga at all. I'll give it a try again.
>>33783
you can read some posts on guriguriblog about it to fully understand/appreciate it. He has some excellent things to say about the substance part of it. Some of the best parts about that film are thinking and interpreting it, rather than viewing it. I remember scavenging for information about it obsessively back in the day, Yoshitaka Amano said in an interview that Mamoru Oishii, the film's director was going through a divorce at the time and couldn't see his daughter, plus his parents wanted him to be a priest or something in high school. It added some context to the themes of losing faith. You can also see shells in Amano's studio's anime shorts and there is even a frame from Tenshi no Tamago in GITS you can see of, a large skeleton of something.
>>33925
this one was pretty baller, but it went straight downhill very rapidly in the manga soon after the show ends. Pretty great directing, tension and edge, but the worldbuilding left a lot to be desired.

The succubus From the Other Side: Siúil, a Rún

Probably doesn't count as it is a 10 minute short but still it was quite moving despite not having a single line of dialog.
Love the art, the story, really just about everything about it.
Really worth a watch. And like I said, it is only 10 minutes so there is very little to lose.

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (Demon King Daimao)

The pacing is lightning quick most of the time which really helps the humor style but really hurts the dramatic/action story beats, causing blink and you miss it style plot events driving the story forward.
Other then that it is just your standard but fun generic harem ecchi show with a protag that is super op but thankfully not totally boring. Same can't be said of the succubi though. They were mostly uninteresting if I am being honest.

Worth a watch if you are into the genera but otherwise you would probably find it brainless.
Oh, and this show has plenty of T&A in every ep. so if you are into that then there you go, and if you are not then now you know to avoid the show.

I watched Luck and Logic (partially) and its spinoff Hina Logi ~from Luck and Logic~. Both of these shows were made by Doga Kobo. Thoughts on both series are provided below.

Luck and Logic:
The female hero characters are somewhat likable and showed some potential for an interesting character-driven story. The main male character is a generic personality-less MC.

Nice transformation scenes.
Episodes are mainly monster-of-the-week conflicts which are boring as hell.

I dropped this after episode 6.

Some of the female hero characters seemed interesting but truly this show is trash with few redeeming qualities.


Hina Logi:
- Surprisingly enjoyable
- Likable and cute characters
- Nice mahou shoujo outfits
- CUTE!!!!!!

Mostly episodic in terms of plot. Fairly typical school SoL plots but with a mahou shoujo flavour. There was a healthy mix of comfy SoL, sweet moments, and some minor drama. There were some mild shoujo-ai vibes between the two lead characters, but it was only a subtle aspect of the show until THAT ONE SCENE (*squees internally*).

Tell us your anime likes and dislikes or some sort of information about what you're looking for, or just examples of past shows you've enjoyed, and hopefully someone will recommend you a good show to watch.

Like
>plot driven
>interesting fantasy or sci-fi worlds
>interesting social commentary or philosophical stuff
>hero archetypes
>good character arcs
>political intrigue
>fights where strategy is involved rather than just powering up with beams or determinationing your way through it


Dislike
>romance (esp. pedo shit)
>boring slice of life shit where nothing outside the realm of normality happens (cute succubi doing cute things)
>high school setting and children mcs in general (not always I've just seen a lot of them and it's getting old especially as I myself am getting older)
>slow paced
>fan service that takes away from the plot and wastes time
>comedic relief/gags (situational comedy is fine but the japanese tend to do this annoying shit where they put on wonky music and people yell at each other and they call it comedy)
>style over substance (eg, lain, technolyze, FLCL)

I don't see how it is overrated. It is a excellent fantasy show that seems to be very loosely based on old school school revival table top role playing games.
AKA everything is deadly, the PCs are all too fragile, and it takes wits, caution, and planing to make it out a dungeon alive.

I enjoyed it because it had the protagonist be clever and pragmatic to come out on top rather then the usual over powered MC magic bullshit that are all too common in action anime.
Then on top of that you have heavy psychological themes which I am a sucker for when done well.
It does have it's flaws as all things do ( flat supporting characters come to mind), it is still well above average to the level of a good show that I have no problem recommending it to people who can handle mature media.

Besides, it wasn't the violence but that one scene in the first episode that triggered the phonies and sjw.

I think she's Indian, as in India Indian. I assume most of the brown people in Pokemon, barring the obvious Hawaiian and Okinawa settings, are meant to be Indian, at least in X/Y.
I've seen some Japanese artists assume the same for the water type gym leader in Sword/Shield.
