No explanation will matter after we begin
Unlock the dark wiztroyer that's buried within
My true vocation, and now my unfortunate friend
You will discover a war you're unable to win

I'll have you know that I've become…
Determination that is incorruptible
From the other side, a terror to behold
Annihilation will be unavoidable
Every broken enemy will know
That their opponent had to be invincible
Take a last look around while you're alive
I'm an indestructible
Master of war

Cute nyaakos doing cute nyaa things. Shameless, no substance, but it's cute catgirls doing cute things. Worth it just for the distraction, since cute anime is great.

Oshi ga Budoukan Ittekuretara Shinu:
I usually find idol stuff unappealing. This fits in that category, but it's more about idol fans than the idols themselves. I can't tell if it's flattering or not, but the succubi are sickeningly cute. Luckily there's more than that and it's actually reasonably entertaining. There's a wierd sense that it's almost making fun of these fans, and it kind of is. It's a weird fascination just how obsessed these people are over idols. It's like a zoo.

Cute at least. The subject matter is very dry but at least there's some interest. Geology and astronomy. It's pretty factual when it does bring out the trivia and the science, which is nice. Overall pretty boring unless you're into geology or astronomy, but it's cute so it had me sold. I don't have high standards.

Kabukicho Sherlock:
This started kind of okay. It was dumb, but it was okay. There were plenty of leaps of logic and implausible bullshit, but not enough to stop it from running. The character names are pretty dumb. Then about half way through it goes off the rail and nothing starts making any sense. The leaps of logic and the dumb shit piles up and the story ceases making any sense at all. It's pretty much as if the author got away with some stupid crap early on and then ramped it up to feed the vision they had in their head with little regard to what was believable.

Magia Record:
Uh, what? The story isn't coherent, I had very little idea what was going on at all times, and the visuals, instead of assisting the show, make it more of a jumble. To start off with, nothing any of the characters does matters. Not even in their own timeline. Secondly, it deconstructs a lot of what made the original show impactful.
I'm probably missing a lot of character exploration and deeper themes but they need to get the basics right first.
Stop making madoka things, please.
I can see why someone would like this, but if you imagined this without the context of the original series this would be a disaster. It lacks the grounding that is necessary for the mystical elements to make sense. It's like the trip to wonderland never ends.

There's something so fucking wrong with this picture….

Why the fuck would someone still use Windows XP in 2010/2011?


I used windows XP till 2017, then on 2018 changed to windows 7, and now 10.


I use Win 98SE now.


It's a Japanese thing, they held on to XP and CRT televisions way longer than the rest of the 1st world for whatever reason

I'm looking for a new animu to watch, I've listed some of the stuff I highly rated, maybe there will be something others may be interested in listed below, but I would greatly appreciate any recommendations based on what you think I might love.

Animus: Serial Experiments Lain, Akagi, Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, Psychiatrist Irabu, FMA:brotherhood, neongenesisevangerion, steins gate (prob gonna watch steins gate: zero if nothing seems better), Gilgamesh, Death Note, Ping Pong the animation, Baccano! , NHK…

Those are the best I can think of at the moment.

Gurls und Panzer for bishoujo and tanks.


Anyone seen Beastars?
Is it just furry fetish or is it worth watching?
t. not into furries


It gets praised basically everywhere so go for it. I still haven't checked it because I have issues with furshit but supposedly it's nothing like that.


It’s weird. You might be turned off by the constant relationship stuff. It starts out pretty strong but gets just weirder and weirder and crazier as it goes on. It’s not really fetish bait, though there are some questionable parts.

oh hey I watched that a while ago, it was kind of ok to relax at the end of the day but yeah it wasn't anything great
I liked the other blonde succubus that sometimes would help them


I remember someone here posting about it maybe a year or so ago.

Just because I was lukewarm on it doesn't mean others can't like it. Don't let my subjective opinion tarnish your memory.

Personally I thought Udon no Kuni was a much better 'single dad anime'.

I just finished watching Babylon. I got interested once I read that it's based on a biblical character from Revelations.
I don't want to talk much about the technical aspects because the animation and soundtrack was pretty forgettable.
The first arc and the second arcs were good enough to keep you hooked up with occasional twists and shocking moments. It's the final arc that shat on everything that the first two arcs built on.
I think the main reason I feel frustrated is because I'm not exactly sure what the anime wants to convey. It started with "Should suicide be legalized?" and then the author got his head up inside his ass and lost track of himself.

I just finished watching Id: Invaded.
Technical aspects first. The anime was good to look at and was well animated with occasional lazy animation that flare up during action scenes. The character designs are good except for the outdated unfunny joke of using a 23yo succubus that looks like a 12yo with a fat ass.
The soundtrack was forgettable and they looks like they felt the need to use english background tracks to appeal to the funimation audience. The OP and ED was bad and completely worth skipping.
The anime pretty much ripped off ideas from Inception mostly, source code and the other popular police procedural anime like GitS and Psycho-Pass. To someone who hasn't watched Inception this would be groundbreaking but the Inception ripoff, including some plot points make it a really distasteful experience.
For me the twist was really bad. I hated the fact that The serial killers were incited into becoming serial killers, so they weren't technically in the wrong so that the audience don't feel bad for supporting the two serial killers who form a part of the main cast. Lazy excuses.
I'm also tired of the evangelion shit that the directors felt compelled to include in. Why must all anime shout out to evangelion? Just do something original instead.
Why must every anime I see these days start strong and end up being a massive disappointment?

I haven't watched the Pokemon anime in a really long time, did they ever have another good series? I only know that they changed the animation style after all these years and they gave Ash a love interest or something? What do you wizards think of this series?

I love how Suiren is very friendly and approachable on the surface, but she's much more intense, craftier and smarter than she lets on.


Just finished playing Pokemon X, it was alright.

I liked the French inspired region, but the story was kind of meh.


The final episode of the Sun and Moon dub aired today, still no word yet on what the new series dub will be like.


Misty = Asian/Western mix
May = American white succubus
Dawn = Asian Japanese
Iris = mix of brown/Native American
Serena = French
Mallow = Hawaiian or Polynesian
Lana = Chinese (her outfit resembles Chinese clothing)
Lillie = German or Russian. Lusamine and Gladion looked like they were going back to the motherland. Lillie's snow outfit also resembled Russian clothing.


The last one aired in Canada today.

So i want to start to watch the Lotgh and i dont know which version should i watch, so i need your advice.

Does remake is good(it looks fancier for me) or should i watch original instead?

I feel awful that I can't stomach this series enough to finish it; it's amazing, but it's so goddamn slow and exhausting to sit through.


>I strongly suggest you wach the gaiden before the original series, the original only gets better if you watch it first IMO.

Totally agree to that. The OVAs really work like beautyful prequels which enrich the main story massively. Do yourself a favour and dont follow that chart.

I learned Hiragana and am starting Katakana. I don't know what I'm supposed to learn in a kanji so I guess I'll just follow a free course on the net or some book and use my app as a way to learn kanjis as voacbulary instead of only going with the app.


Are all the words that use katakana derived from English and sound enough like the English word that you should be able to figure it out if heard spoken? I'm debating whether or not to try and learn katakana. Seems like a pain in the ass for not a lot of reward if my only goal is to be able to understand the spoken language. When I am watching anime I can hear a lot of English loaner words and I know what they are.


its never too early to start learning kanji
>Are all the words that use katakana derived from English and sound enough like the English word that you should be able to figure it out if heard spoken?
no, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_gairaigo_and_wasei-eigo_terms#Examples
you should learn katakana anyway, but that'll only allow you to read loan words and a handful of very very common words


zatouichi, nigger


Katakana is extremely easy to learn, can only take a couple of days max. It wont help with listening but it's silly to be trying to learn japanese and not learn it

Have mama cook it for you.


just had a pathetic shin ramyun cup noodle made by koreans.
it was overly spicy with superficial shallow taste.
for some reason japs dont export thei cup noodles to canada, maybe because we're subhuman waito piggus and are unworthy of their ramen.

Life in japan is shit


Due to coronavirus there are delivery services that drop food at your door and walk away now

I've only had bad experiences getting take-away ramen. It always goes cold and gross + is bad if they separate the ingredients in separate containers etc

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?

How do you feel about anime VN adaptations as compared to ordinary VNs? What are the pros and cons of them, in your opinion?

Personally I prefer watching anime VN adaptations. Maybe I'm an uncultured swine. I prefer to just passively enjoy the atmosphere and music and the semi-coherent VN-adapted story. I don't like having to actively interact with the computer to move things along. Audiovisual production quality is higher with the anime too, typically.


I haven't watched many VN adaptations, but my impression is that they take the VN and then arbitrarily crop and butcher the story nd characters to be suited for an animated show. Not a good recipe in my eyes.


I liked the Kanon adaptation more than the visual novel (though I only played ~half of the visual novel to be fair). Mainly because it just piles on the suffering that happens to the MC in each route sequentially, which leads to some fairly good ending episodes where he's just reminiscing about all the shit that happened.

AIR was decent at first but kind of got weird in the last few episodes. I never read the VN so I don't know how faithful to the original it was though.

Amagami and Amagami SS were both pretty good adaptations although they left out some dialogue and events that were pretty important in the developing relationships between characters.

Really I think how good adaptations are is heavily dependent on the genre and story of the VN and which route(s) they choose to focus on. I personally prefer VNs because they're longer, give more time for character development, and put more focus on a character's internal thoughts, as opposed to just dialogue. Adaptations often have to cut out a lot of details to make the story fit within the allotted time.

Not pornographic but I enjoyed this visual novel on the PSP called Hayarigami. It's a supernatural detective game but depending on your choices you can either stick with scientific explanations when trying to solve the cases, or you can acknowledge the existence of supernatural elements at play. There's also an in-game database that gets filled up as you play with all sorts of neat trivia about urban myths, supernatural legends, psychology, etc.


Are there any good eroges/visual novels that have a loner good ending/route? Couldn't find the appropriate tag on vndb. At the top of my head, I can remember that katawa shoujo had just the bad loner end and everlasting summer had an actual loner good end, I'm looking for something like that.
Another question: is there any good/vanilla routes in school days? Recently started playing it and as soon as I saw just a hint of fucked up shit(according to my tastes), I just turned it off immediately. People were saying it was good. Is the fucked up shit part of the reason it is good? 'Cause I think I'm too innocent to fully appreciate it. I would like to finish the game though. But if it doesn't have a straight vanilla route I won't bother. Maybe I'll come back to it later when I 'm jaded enough
