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 have this problem, but not with anime, since I'm a pretty casual anime fan all things considered. For me, it takes the form of video games and trying to remember, in any particular game that I've played/finished in the past that I suddenly try to test my memory with, what each of their levels were, what their final bosses were, what their stories were, or even just what their names were. I also experience this with random topics as well. Just the other day I was trying to recall what the name of that Nordic serpent that encircles the world is, but after a whole day of letting it alone and waiting for it to come to me, it never did, so I just caved and looked it up. My memory is pretty much 50/50 at best, especially when it comes to random topics. I'm usually quite pleased with myself if I can manage to remember something especially random like that and it sucks that I couldn't manage to do it this time.

As far as anime is concerned, I'm actually amazed at, not just what I can't remember, but what I actually missed while I was even watching it the first time. For instance, I literally just realized not too long ago that Asuka tried to kill herself after she couldn't come to grips with how low her sync ratio was. I always thought she just kinda wandered off and was doing whatever and didn't even compute what, I'd imagine anyways, was pretty much obvious to anyone else.

The same sort of thing is true for films & manga as well, even though I don't watch many films these days or read much manga. I read 'Goodnight Punpun' a number of months ago and I'm pretty sure I missed plenty of obvious things in that as well.

>Your watching anime in the first place is to escape this reality, so don't be too sad at getting to both have your heroin and shoot it.


Hmm, that's a really good way to put it, I think. Framing it this way even helps me myself with the things I'm frustrated that I can't remember since, as you say, it's to be expected since my mind is rotting & getting worse as I partake in the escapism that I try to remember, even though its very nature erodes the capacity to do so in the first place. And, of course, it's inherently difficulty to remember what are otherwise very forgettable things like mediocre games/anime, or what hPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Remembering the name of the Norse serpent will always be hard because you don't speak Norse. That's the big mistake of our general education system, where many scientific terms are in Latin/Greek, and poor kids are expected to remember them while not being offered even rudimentary Latin/Greek courses. The brain more easily remembers words that have their semantic payload reflected in their morphology. It's one of the reasons why people construct those terms in that meaningful way, instead of making up completely random new words every time they need to name something. Your serpent's name probably just means "big snake" or whatever.

Your mind rotting is just another example of the betrayal of self by the body. Escapism or not, it would rot anyway, and arguably at the same rate, and even if you managed to halt or even reverse the decay of the mind by whatever arcane arts, the decay of the rest of the body would still progress, sooner or later taking its effect on the mind anyway.

And besides, if you look up how those mnemonists manage to remember all those insane amounts of random information, you'll learn that memory works in the saddest, dumbest way possible. In fact I wouldn't recommend looking it up so that you spare yourself the disappointment. Just know that our brain is not geared up to the tasks our selves put it to. It's not a computer, it's not even a calculator. Civilization demands we stray further and further away from what we evolved to be, and you can't really stop it, but at least it was considerate enough to give us anime and other beautiful things to console ourselves with. Rejoice then in letting your brain remember what it may and letting go freely of the rest, for you as a wizard are one of the few that can afford it, and though perhaps not for as long as you would want to, still for much longer than most even dream of.

Yeah, I just thought I'd remember it because it's shown up in video games, and other random bits of media, I've consumed. Otherwise it's the sort of thing that I of course wouldn't have any chance of remembering, or even knowing in the first place. Even having said that, the name still seemed unrecognizable to me and what I thought was on the tip of my tongue wasn't even close to it.

Anyway, I appreciated reading your reply. It's actually boosted my spirits in this regard, so thanks. I know shouldn't stress so much about my iffy memory, and my other middling mental faculties, so it's reassuring to have someone else, such as yourself, say as much and to also remark on how limited the processes that guide our minds are anyway. The next time I can't remember something, I'll be sure to at least remind myself of what you said here, since it already makes me feel better about it.

I'm autistic so I miss 90% of everything anime tries to convey anyways. It makes it interesting watching.

There's this one scene in Princess Principal near the end of S1 where Ange admits she was suicidal. It's one line, but it changed my view of her character completely.

The whole Ange is actually the- yeah I won't spoil it. But, that was an awesome, awesome twist.

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.

I really like silent, iyashikei anime/manga. Stuff like Yokohama Kadaishi Kikou or Mushishi is top tiered shit for me. Second down from that, but pretty close is easy-going sol shit. You know, the standard fair that Lucky Star kicked off, but I'd include 'fluff'-shit like Wife'n'Wife even though it can be irritating to me from time-to-time.

But, overall, my OTP are silent, stoic characters who just appreciate the world as it is without having to overindulge in sensory overload. One of the episodes of YKK (embed related, even though I couldn't find it with the original soundtrack, this still works) is the epitomy of it, and when I have a bad day, I find myself watching and rewatching that episode. In it, all she does in a single day is manages to wake up, get dressed, and make a cup of coffee. There's no other people involved, it's just this solitary study that really makes me feel like life is worth living just a little while longer.

So, I found out about Tsuki no Suppin. It's an sol that seems like it'd be more like Wife'n'Wife, so it's not my ideal, but I'll take it if I have to. But then I find one of the main characters is this silent, stoic type that appreciates life at their own pace. Given what I've told you above, I hope you might see why this series might pique my interest. And what I've seen so far I really like.

But then I made the mistake of reading comments:

>not really a big fan of Shiho character types, who seem really detached and lethargic/uninterested in everything.

>kinda hate characters who are so bland
>Shiho rocks up messy haired half asleep. Could not deal with that on a regular basis
>Shiho is so dull, being in a r/l with someone like that sounds dreadful

I can live with this. The last comment in particular just makes me emit a long, sorrowful sigh, but I can live with it. This is a preference thing, right? Well, then it starts turning into this:

>Shiho is autistic… or developmentally handicapped.

>yeah, looks like shiho is autistic or something.
>it feels like she has depression and anxiety or something.

An excerpt from a review of "Kino no Tabi: The Beautiful World", that I found on MAL:

>This is Kino's Journey? I'd rather stay at home.


>What many people believe to be a great series, Kino's Journey is a collection of short stories revolving around different countries, customs, traditions and beliefs. The main character Kino travels to these countries with her talking motorcycle pal Hermes, and together they observe the world through outside perspectives.


>In fact, its almost as if Kino is nothing more than a representation of the viewer. Kino does nothing but observe….ever. She never interferes or judges or saves, when she so easily could. She does nothing but watch the people of these countries act like morons, much like the viewer is forced to.


>Due to this, unfortunately the feelings of helplessness and despair sets in and gets comfortable for the entirety of the series.


>I was amazed at the stupidity of it all. I get the concept…we're supposed to feel like nothing can change these awful, horrid events…we cannot change the way of the world. We're about as powerful as a traveler with no soul or heart, but how does that translate into entertainment? All it did was frustrate me.

>[…]Helplessness and despair. Kino, however, shows glimpses of humanity both in her past and towards the end of the series. She does not seem adverse to murder (she kills at least five people throughout the series) and yet she shows a tiny fragment of pain and loss when someone she connected with on a few levels dies […] These moments are brief, scarce, and quickly forgotten when she hops aboard Hermes and rides nonchalantly towards the next country.

>In the end, I did not enjoy Kino's Journey. The series frustrated me and did not make me feel at all like there might be hope for ANYONE in that world. Actually, there was one happy story in the span of 13 episodes, but among all the death and despair, I had forgotten it. I couldn't, in good conscience, recommend this series to anyone looking to anime for an escape or an enjoyable experience.

90% of the anime I watched i exploitation stuff, I think people who watch le srs bzniz shit anime and think theyre watching some sort of art are utter losers.

I like what I like, I always have, I am without guilty pleasures because I do things for me and nobody else.

Most anime is utter junk, for absolute utter subhumans, and like 80% of it is literally meant for little kids.

I have never watched any «highschool bullshit» anime since i left highschool and realized I wasnt a hot young twink anymore and it was humilating to watch little kids and teens go on adventures and stuff.

The way I see it, I am too smart and too good for anime, as compared to the hordes of mouthbreathing, nintendo playing, fedora tipping, computer programming crab losers who watch many many junk anime and treat it like it is some sort of art to be appreciated.

I think the first anime I ever watched was Enzai, exploitation was really the only reason I started watching anime now that I think about it.

Outside of anime, you would never be able to see something like Boku No Pico or Elfen Lied- anywhere, period, that is animes strong point.

People who watch moeshit garbage and highschool faggotry, normies love that shit nowadays just like they loved Big Bang Theory and Star Wars and Comic Books. They need to commit suicide and end their miserable lives.

I dont watch much anime, at least not the 1 series a month I did in highschool, I came to the conclusion in highschool that it did not matter how much anime I watched or what I saw, it made no difference and eventually I stopped enjoying anime and giving existential value to what I had seen or planned to see when it was in fact all worthless.

there are so many subhuma crabs who will literally watch a series every week no matter how crappy it is just to say they did it because they lack the power of introspection, they will gladly waste their pathetic worthless lives without giving the slightest though to their situation.


it is what it is. anime is junk as an artform when it comes to slice of life junk and romcoms, its saving grace is the ability for it to express extreme pornography and violence in was grindhouse films from the 70s and 80s could only dream of.

I despise this series.

Don't give me the "IT MAKES A TURNAROUND IN CHAPTER 132498579182, AND IT'LL ALL BE WORTH IT." Even with the turnaround, all it becomes is the epitome of "Jus b urself :^)" logic. Without the turnaround it's just embarrassment, and I have enough of that thinking about myself.

This is a series made by normies to laugh at wizards.

Yeah like, holy shit, Can the manga end already? The anime left off on a good note, kind of leaving a tone of acceptance. The manga is just dragging its last limb and is becoming normal moe cancer. I still love Tomoko, I dont think I will ever dislike the series due to her.

The turnaround is exactly what makes it shit, and apparently it actually happened, though I've not been following the manga myself. If there had been no turnaround it would have at least been somewhat original in going against the general wish-fulfillment theme that's so prevalent in anime.

As to it being a mockery of whatever condition/personality, imagine you were in charge of making a show about something that's generally mocked or considered disgusting by the society at large.
If you made your commentary serious and deep, you would invite pity from the normal people. "Those poor wizards", they would say, "how horribly sad their lot is in life! I remember having a wizard-like thought myself a couple of times, seriously we must do something to help those guys."
If you made your commentary lighthearted and optimistic, you would invite laughter from the normal people. "Those cheeky wizards", they would say, "how utterly funny their shenanigans are! I remember embarrassing myself like that once, fun times."

Arguably as long as you find yourself in opposition to society, it will never understand you, by definition, so any response it makes to you will look like a mockery. With that in mind, the correct way to look at the various media and art in general would be to find what it tells to you personally, not what it tells to other people or what it was meant to tell, and while it is of course important to understand the motivations and goals of the author, just so you could identify propaganda, satire, etc, I don't think one should get too hung up on it.

She was my «waifu» or OTP or whatever when I was in highschool. I remember when it first started and there were only like 20 chapters out and I stopped keeping up with it around then.

I related to her severely, due to my intense truecel autism, I eventually came to the conclusion that it was all fabricated and succubi like her did not exist because succubi live life on E Z P Z mode and cannot be crabs.

So I stopped caring about it despite my prior intense love (I literally chopped up manga panels and spread them around as reactions) and by the time the watamote anime came out I did not give a fuck about such delusions. Regardless I did watch the anime and was heavily disappointed and the crappy moe blob butchery.

TL;DR, dont care, fuck it. it was good when i could get instese reactions out of it because I was a heavily avoidant, but that was back in the «spill my spaghetti» days.

In hindsight, almost ten years later, it is no different from romanticizing Kristen Stewart in the movie Speak- it is nothing but a fantasy for miserable permavirgin truecel losers to idealize and convince themselves they arent going to die alone.

I've been hunting for jap subs in general for the longest time, and to no satisfactory result, but I will now present you with my findings.

For old stuff there exist several repositories. Kitsunekko is one of them, and you can find links to others in various DJTs. This variety of subs is decent, being captured off BDs and DVDs and whatever.
For currently airing stuff there is NOTHING. Sometimes, very rarely, subs for an ongoing show would be uploaded to kitsunekko, with significant delay, and timed to God knows what. Additionally there is at least one chink group that includes jap subs in their releases, and they used to sub ongoing shows semi-actively, though of course only a handful per season, but apparently they've been on life support for a while now. They're called Kamigami.

That's it.

It's really surprising how jap subs are impossible to find, considering a huge amount of shows on jap tv air with subs for hearing impaired, and for those folks that bring us the raws it should be trivial to capture them.
