we show each other our manag collection. I still have manga behind the one you see


I own Uzumaki, Gyo, and Berserk vol 1. Guts was such an ass in the manga and the settings so needlessly bleak I decided to stop reading


bruhhh 💀


first chapter in and guts is abusing the one and only character sympathetic to him. Later chapter is a farmer and his daughter only for them to be killed for no obvious plot purpose. Not as good as the anime


Never found Berserk needlessly bleak. Firepunch on the other hand..

I prefer to support creators through merch. If you buy books or discs, I respect you. I don't own any physical copies, but I've always wanted to start a manga cafe. Even a mobile library.

Attached is from Fire Punch.


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


is there an equivalent to anime today?
by equivalent, i mean something that's exotic and liked by weirdos.
(preferably not from japan)


no, anime is unparalleled in human history

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

I watched Idol Jihen, also known as Idol Incidents. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about idol succubi who are also politicians within the national Japanese legislative system. Despite some mature themes involved, this show basically feels like a Saturday-morning cartoon meant for a child audience. The plot is mostly episodic and usually involves the simplistic use of some kind of political conflict, such as a scandal or public policy decision. Aside from these political themes, this feels like a generic formulaic idol show; this anime isn't nearly as creative as it could have been. Regardless, the unusual juxtaposition of idols and politics is silly and fun. The absurdity of it got some chuckles out of me. The novelty of mixing idols and Japanese politics is what kept me watching this show, even though the actual scene-by-scene story is quite dull and feels calibrated for a child audience. This anime consistently feels juvenile.

I wish there were more song-and-dance scenes and more musical content in general. All they ever did was recycle the (admittedly quite cute) OP and ED songs for the idol scenes, which was very disappointing and also just another major indication of how low effort this anime is as a whole. They also reused the exact same CG dance animation multiple times. If you want good musical idol content, look elsewhere. At least some of the idol outfits and character designs are cute.

Idol Jihen is a unique cultural artifact, but ultimately it's not particularly entertaining. If you're interested in the Japanese legislative system, you might get a kick out of this anime, but don't expect much in the way of detail or nuance; the treatment of politics here is quite superficial. Lastly, this seems like it would be a fun show to watch with other people and collectively joke about; it has a lot of meme potential, which hasn't been capitalized upon due to its low viewership.

My overall rating: 4/10



I watched Youjo Senki, also known as Saga of Tanya the Evil. I watched the first season, the OVA, and the movie. At the time of writing, Season 2 has not yet aired. Here are my thoughts:

This anime is about a salaryman who gets reincarnated in pseudo-WW1 Europe as a young orphan succubus (Tanya) while retaining their original personality. Tanya has an aptitude for magic and joins the military as an officer in the mage unit. Tanya is sort of an 'anti-hero' main character in the sense that they are highly self-interested and morally ambiguous.

The action scenes in Youjo Senki look good and have detailed fight choreography along with nice sound effects. The audio production quality of this is what I'd expect from a movie – it's pretty nice. In fact, Youjo Senki overall has movie-like production quality. The visuals are a strong point – the setting in particular looks fantastic. The European landscape often looks amazing. Furthermore, the architecture and interior decor feels authentic for the time period and is consistently meticulous and vividly detailed. I could tell there was a lot of attention to detail put into how the setting is depicted. One of my favourite things about this anime was admiring the intricate interior design of each room, and the cinematography does a good job of displaying it! Additionally, the character animation is fluid and well done too, including facial expressions. There is also lots of variety among the character designs, making each member of the large cast distinctive and easy to discern. The visuals of Youjo Senki are excellent.

Although the premise of this show is neat, I found the actual episode-by-episode story underwhelming and very predictable. Speaking more generally, although I found Youjo Senki entertaining, I never found it suspenseful or exciting, which seems like a shortcoming for a violent action-heavy show set in a war zone. The protagonist plot armour is blatantly indestructible, and the stakes never feel high as a result. It is a fun easy-to-watch show though. Despite the war theme, this anime feels best suited for casual viewing – it never feels all that serious. This isn't Saving Private Ryan; it's just a silly isekai anime and you should set your expectations accordingly.

Tanya's VA does an excellent job and is very unique and memorabPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

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?

Tried watching 2hu fandom on youtube a while ago. Yukari always ends up being the big bad villain which is repetitive. Diamond in the rough was also just plain insulting.

"Super-Duper Gensokyo level Dangan Ronpa" is actually better than Danganronpa for writing but unfortunately never got finished

I decided to finally stop being a fucking secondary nigger after a decade or so, and picked up Story of Eastern Wonderland about a week ago. I would've started ages ago but for some reason I thought to learn Japanese and "enjoy it in it's original form". So far the best I've done was get to Mima with 4 lives, then get smacked to shit and die just before the end. I feel like I should be able to finish her either today or within the next 1-2 days, then I'll do the EXTRA and move on to the 3rd game.
The gameplay and music are nice, though I have a hard time paying attention to the latter, my brain starts blocking it out very quickly so I can focus better. Sometimes I feel cheated after dying to stupid shit or missing a 1UP, unfortunately I have anger control problems so it can fuck up the run or the one after it, today I've happened to read the bible after getting really pissy at the game, it actually made me really serene and the next run I did was one of my best, so I might make it a habit to read it whenever I get upset at the games from now on.

Wiz, "3D" means real succubi, like photos and cosplay. 3DCG is still 2D so renders and screencaps are allowed.

I have occasionally seen the opposite sentiment expressed quite strongly, claiming that high-quality 3DCG is 3dpd and has no business being posted in a 2D thread. However if you repost your assertion with a mod capcode, I'll be happy to share a few cute Tifa/Aeris 3DCG images.


Don't like 3DCG unless it's extremely anime/stylized

I feel like there needs to be a thread made about this. I know this has been talked about many times since 2016 but even then I think this topic is still very neglected because the consequences aren't noticeable on the entirety of Anime yet. There's just something really aggravating about low-status men loosing one of the few hobbies that they could actually enjoy to the very same normalfags and succubi who constantly treat us like dogshit 24/7 and make our daily lives a living hell. We all know the consequences that come with any hobby becoming popular among normgroid NPCs, they start pushing their shitty status-quo bs on it. I'm honestly convinced that by the end of this decade Anime will never have that same feeling as it always did, it'll just become another soulless mainstream form of entertainment to appeal to normalfags. Start expecting chad and his succubi gf to start bragging about going to watch an anime to their NPC social sphere like they do with their shitty MCU movies along with whores cosplaying as your waifu to sell her nudes on the internet to some orbiters (which is already happening to a certain extent). Some oldfags may argue that Anime declined long time ago, and while that's debatable I will say that Anime still retains a very unique feeling to it that is void in the majority of other watchable entertainment and low-status men are the ones that keep and preserve it that way. Mark my words, Anime will be completely unrecognizable around by the end of this decade. Maybe someone can articulate this better than I can but that's the best way I can put it.

Guys it's late night and I have a genial idea. TikTok was created for this reason. Look, this is an incredible profit.
1. Dumb zoomers will pay and they already earn ridiculous amount of money on that bullshit.
2. Dumb zoomers are so fucking dumb that they will share whatever is "cool but illegal" there, so that relatively obscure pirating sites will be brought up and therefore most civilized countries will *HAVE* to take measures!

This is a genial way to make them dig a grave they will be buried into. When I wake up I want to discover that the thought is wrong. No kidding.


Older generations are the ones who know how things function because they have more time using the Internet. It was them who let fandoms die and stopped gatekeeping. They should be teaching new gens how to use things, but they don't and only enjoy whining.


How do you fucking imagine "teaching" and "gatekeeping" a god damn swarm of retards? This is not physically possible with this level of globalization when every fucking daft idiot can share his retarded bullshit "content" with the whole world and even find the likes of him. You're mad.


> they have more time using the Internet.
Zoomers where born in a world with internet, so not really, if you compare percent-of-life

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 was never particularly autistic about remembering anime, especially the ones I enjoyed less. I rewatch my favorites sometimes and it definitely helps but for some lesser known anime or OVAs is very difficult for me to remember. It's a mixture of convoluted storytelling and not being able to talk about it to anyone (memory is built on repetition) that makes it so I forget a lot about it besides key points or my favorite character's personality and traits. Having some internet friends or an imageboard will one hundred help if you're forgetful.
When I first got into monster of the week anime I used to keep track of episode quality on a small list, that way when I look back at the show after finishing it, I'd see how much I enjoyed or didn't enjoy it. It was annoying to keep track of all that shit so I eventually stopped. Ultimately, things like a shitty ending can ruin your enjoyment of a show even if you liked 90% of it, cause bad things stay in your mind for longer. That happened multiple times on me and I sometimes look back on episode lists and think to myself "yeah, that was worth the shitty ending"
I guess what I'm trying to say it that I think that even if you forget the show, you shouldn't forget how you felt about it. Even if you mix up memories and confuse a show with something else or forget the title or develop some fake memories on top of that, you should have faith in yourself and say "Yeah that anime… I forgot the entire second quarter but holy fuck was it hype!".
Don't blame your brain that you forgot anime plot points, and don't think that "I forgot this so it must be bad", if you've seen 100-200 anime you've got full rights to be forgetful. With that in mind it's not good to discuss anime like that, if you attempt to talk about a show you've seen 8 years ago online people will notice and call you a faggot.


actually first time this happened a few days ago. was checking mal and noticed something i finished and rated and could not for the life of me remember anything about it

i think i might have been doing a sleep deprivation experiment at the time though to trigger lucid dreams…


When I first discovered anime and manga I was in a really fucked situation, I would sleep for 0-4 hours a day and I desperately needed something to cope with my shit life with, so I immediately pounced on anime and manga and started consuming them at immense speeds. I would go through at least 2 anime every single day and this continued for like 4 years straight, so I must have finished far more than a thousand anime/manga in just those 4 years, after that I went coldfish for a few years, during which I perfectly forgot about every single one of them.
In all 5 of the manga I've finished reading recently, I realized either halfway through or at the end that I had read through the entire thing at least once before.


I've been through the exact same thing


start reviewing them

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?

Didn't a new book come out last year or something? Anyone read it and have an opinion?


I could never relate to it because I couldn't possibly afford even a tiny 2 room apartment where I live as a NEET. And if I somehow got a security guard or any minimum wage job? Still couldn't afford it. In fact the only place I could afford would be renting out a single room in a house-share and I don't think I need to explain why that's not attractive. Satou's life seems like such a luxury by comparison.


i dont know, but i desperately want to fuck that succubus


This. All i want is my own place and i'll never have it. Fuck satou.


Misaki adopted Satou because he had his own apartment. Treacherous cunning succubus!
