what are anime who are watching right now? I'm watching hikaru no go, I already red the manga but I wanted to watch the anime to catch up if I missed something


Watching the TouHou anime. It's good so far.


I suppose I can review anime I've finised thus far.

FLCL Progressive
I watched it without subtitles for reasons, so kinda didn't understand.
Still fun. 7/10

Welcome to the Ballroom
Actually started the first quarter in 2021 yet didn't finish til now.
My only gripe was the speediness/stylization of the dance. Like it was Beauty and the beast's dance scene directed by the aliens from Edge of tommorrow (if not Zack Snyder on stuff), which gets in the way at times. Otherwise it's fairly intricate in mostly good ways. 7/10

Darling in the Franxx
It's all right as long as you don't look at it as a mecha anime (nor mind the way they pilot them). I dunno, I'm a sucker for animes that are at least barely for the faint of heart yet manage to end on an agreeably optimistic note. Plus that same post-Moebius aesthetic could've been worse. 9/10

World War Blue
Shitty idea. Amazing execution. 8/10


Mob Psycho 100 3.

So far it isn't quite as good as 2 but I haven't even made it to the half way point so there is still room for things to ramp up.
But yeah, much heavier focus on comedy over action so far in the 3rd season.

Best storyline, Best fights, Best charcters, Best villians, many people think that all the fights are the same and all the arcs are to similar when they're not, it sucks only with pacing and maybe it is long

I'm waiting for multiple trainwrecks.


terrible, bloated series, also we already have a one piece thread on /jp/


Its literally one of the most popular series in the world, and known as one of the Big 3. I don't like using ad homs usually, but are you genuinely stupid, OP?


>maybe it is long
its over 1000 episodes


Welp, gonna be away from Wizchan for a while:

One Piece is the bitcoin of anime..


Instead of trying to save japan's population through robots or immigration. Why doesn't japan just downsize their economy and all their assets to suit a smaller country and return to being a national backwaters? It'd be the most based thing to do and it'd stop them from being globohomo'd into oblivion.

If you like anime and would like to see more quality Japanese games, then yeah, Japan's societal issues are your issues to.


anime is boring

It is not.


There's an hypothesis that Western Europe selected genetically against personal violence through centuries of death penalty, where almost 1% of the males in each generation were executed. Of course it didn't get rid of every case, and it's possible that whites who left Europe before the cultural perception of capital punishment fully changed would still be more violent, as in mostly the ones in America being worse than the ones in Europe. I've heard that one of the authors of this research wrote a book where he makes some similar or equivalent speculation about the Chinese, except it would be throughout a much longer time period, and might explain the orderliness and conformism of East Asian cultures.

I do think whites would be detrimental do Japan, but in another way. Using the Big 5 model of personality traits, it's possible that whites are excessively open to experience. About the rest of East Asia, I'd still be cautious. I'm not that much of an extremist and I believe one or two blacks or Arabs at a time might be assimilated, the problem is always mass immigration, and that might be an issue even for Koreans or Chinese. Ideally Japan would close itself for a few years. The economic results might be temporarily disastrous, but not nearly as a bad as the devastation of losing the last war, and nothing that they couldn't manage in a few more years.


I live in america and the bad whites i was referring to were not just trailer trash or skin heads. Rich white kids are utterly vile human beings. The stacys are the worst and the chads are no joke either. they are incredibally arrogant and it killed my faith in the idea that the white race was somehow more pure than the rest. Not. the only N word to be concerned about is Normies. Normies are savages.

>Using the Big 5 model of personality traits

stopped reading. That pop psychology bullshit isn't valid. Though east asians are supposedly genetically inclined to take less risks and be more reserved. I made another post on here talking about why its the only way their societies could be so orderly.

Shaman King has characters that are English and Irish, though the Irish one is not that relevant.

Britain is relevant in all installments of Read or Die/Read or Dream, just don't expect a positive representation. Also Code Geass.

Diana Cavendish from Little Witch Academia is British.

Clow Reed from Cardcaptor Sakura had an English father, I'm not sure it's said where he is born.

I think L from Death Note is English, or at least the orphanage he was raised in is in England.

I'm sure there are tons more of minor characters that are from the UK.

I suppose every Fate series has at least one character from the UK.


I'd prefer to see Anglo dubs more than I would Anglo or Celtic characters, it doesn't matter what ethnicity the character is they will still act like an anime character.


Why would you want to see mangled attempts at a British character?


In Gundam ZZ they go to Dublin and some intense shit happens there.


I am always amused by Japan's American characters.
I wouldn't be surprised if other countries feel the same.

"Depressing as hell" doesn't cut it as a term for me but there is a melancholic not-quite-sadness underneath the nostalgia I've developed for it because at the time I thought it sucked, and preferred the mood and aesthetics of the 90s. I remember the moods the 2000s gave me though even if I went back in time there's nothing much I could've done to take full advantage of it.

Mushoku Tensei is my favorite Anime, and I think it should be very relatable to wizards. Its where a Wizard gets reincarnated as a literal Wizard.

I just finished the first episode of the second season. It was great.

I wish the story explored the psychology of the protagonist more and went in depth into his trauma, personality development etc but there was very little of that. There was a bit where the isekai father confronts his immaturity but not much more than that. I want to see an isekai where the author is brave enough to send the MC back to their original life and reality at the end of the story and see if their isekai experiences and his new worldview will have effect on how how he navigates reality. But I guess in the end Mushoku Tensei is relegated into the library of wish fulfillment and low quality fantasy


Spoiler: there will be more people from Rudy's world that are reincarnated in this one.


The second season was quite boring. We got a generic school setting and basically zero action. It was all drama dealing with rejection, ED, depression etc.

What's a good place to start this show and when's a good spot to stop watching it?
31 posts and 11 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


>Seems like forced marketing bullshit
I mean how can you tell what's genuine and what isn't these days? People don't seem to have their own opinions anymore.


I've watched teasers and trailers and didn't feel like watching the show at all, but the reaction to it does seem excessively and artificially positive.


I watched the live action and it was decent. I mean, it's corny and goofy as fuck, but what else can you expect from One Piece. Apparently the mangaka had some say in the creative direction so they couldn't flip race/gender/sexuality of the characters like you usually expect from Jewflix.


>they couldn't flip race/gender/sexuality
But they did, without informing Oda until after the fact. Then he complained, and they called him a racist.
>as fuck
You must be at least 81 to post here


People say shit about Western adaptations of anime and manga, but truth is most of the Japanese ones are very bad as well, it is something that doesn't really translate well into live action.

Maybe this belongs more on /hob/ and if the mods agree I would hold no ill will for them for moving or deleting it but I recently got around to watching Serial Experiments Lain and wanted to find some other wizzards with good reccomendations for /dep/ anime. The ones of course given are succubi last tour and Lain. I would personally not count Watamote as it seems quite shallow and everything turns out fine in the end and whatnot. So what are some other anime, manga or light novels dealing with actual depression or schizophrenia and not in the mainstream boohoo am so sad way.

>With all the tech available at their very fingertips and instead of creating something new with already existing materials, all they can do is remix and regurgitate in accordance with the "current trend".
because they specifically grew up with smartphones and tablets and the shitty social media apps they contain. that's what made most of them so retarded. remember that article a couple of years ago of college professors having to explain to new students what files and folders were because most of them had never used an actual PC or laptop? all they knew about were "apps".


I thought that was an exaggeration.


Ah yes the mystical oldfag internet that we just had to be there to understand despite all we know of oldfag memes being just as infantile and devoid of creativity as any present trends. Zoomers can't understand rage comics, DESU spam or screamer videos. Truly inferior.


>despite all we know of oldfag memes being just as infantile and devoid of creativity as any present trends.
It must be so depressing to be a zoomer, to not even understand that time works in a linear fashion.

The internet used to be a massive ecosystem of websites and forums with their own cultures and in-jokes. You did actually have to be there to understand because most of the shit is gone.

I'm starting a thread about something that's good for the orbs, and that's old fashioned man-on-man violence. Big guns, robots, fast cars, and flying machines also welcome. Anti-masculine opinions NOTwelcome. In this thread, testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.

Anime about nice school succubi being saved from tentacles by the isekai'd NEET wiz are cool and wizardly [fact], and such fantasies are good for testosterone production, but we need something else to discuss while the pressure of a thousand shoujos weighs too heavily on our shoulders.

Using streaming services is low-t too.

Let us know how it goes.
>Does anyone have recs for stuff similar to great teacher onizuka?

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Hinamatsuri, I think that's what it's called. It's about a member of the Yakuza who randomly finds some little succubus in his apartment that he's forced to take care of.

It has some funny moments but it's otherwise a serious anime.


File: 1691596073898.jpeg (14.47 KB, 253x199, 253:199, download.jpeg) ImgOps iqdb

Another good one is Space Adventure Cobra, which is more or less a manlier version of Lupin III in space.


>testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.


When I feel down I watch Conan the Barbarian. There is something fascinating about the analogy of a man overcoming overwhelming odds and forged steel. Hell, Conan inspired me to hit the gym 5 days a week for 6 months now…


it's funny, i enjoy the humor and the gags and all the bits. the comedy style rides the line between homoerotic versus juvenile fun. has gym/self improvement/stoicism/masculinity/honor themes. one episode early on is wiz as fuck where momo rejects the succubus and leaves with his bros. they dont make stuff like this tbh

Can't let this be posted without recommending Cromartie High. It's the same in concept but a much more sarcastic take on things that ends up getting pretty meaningful in some chapters. There's some feels that can resonate with guys who are either fired up or fed up. The anime adaption is great and even the dub has been hailed by the doritoist of neckbeards.
