CCS is one of he best animes I have ever seen! I remember watching the shitty dubbed version on Teletoon but the Japanese version is a million times better! Sakura S so cute and the show is so fucking comfy!

What was the most disappointing anime you have ever watched? For me personally, it was Sailor Moon Crystal. I'm a big Sailor Moon fan and I was pumped for the new series to come out, even though it kept getting delayed I didn't care, I just wanted to feel the magic I felt watching the series for the first time again. But when the show aired in the summer of 2014 i was met with a show with extremely sloppy animation, poor writing and really just an underwhelming vibe to it. It was just such a gut punch to see my favorite show get treated with such a mishandled and mediocre retelling.

This obviously never happened, but as someone who has seen Madoka I rate Rebellion as the most disappointing anime of all time. They couldn't have fucked it up harder even if they had specifically set out to sabotage it.

Do you know any more anime that give you a feeling of isolation and loneliness? Where the interactions between characters are short? Where it's more about the atmosphere created by images and sound rather than story and dialogue? They don't necessarily have to take place in desolate places. It could also be about the sense of isolation you get from living in a big city.

Haibane renmei maybe?
Other people already said it but yeah I'm doubling down on the Texhnolyze and Kino's Journey (2003) recommendations.
Casshern Sins is another good one though. About a super robot in a post apocolyptic world, though there are reoccurring characters that show up a lot. The pacing is glacial and its very episodic so it might be draining for you
Mushi-shi is an iyashikei show about a wondering witch doctor-type character who specializes in spirit creatures.
Yuru Camp is a show with long segments of the main character just camping by herself and dealing with her struggle to like solo camping, but also not wanting to let her friends down by not camping with them. It might not be as lonely/atmospheric as you're looking for but its a good show regardless

Blame! does convey the feeling of isolation, but i strongly recommend you reading the manga, rather than watching a movie.

I have no clue what is keeping you people from talking about the best contribution Japan has brought into the Americas.
Personally, I like any 90s Honda Coupe just as long as it's possible to rice up to 500+ horsepower with at least 50 pounds of torque. The Honda Del Sol was by far my childhood dream car, but I ended up settling for a Honda CRX my parents gave me.

Any Toyota fans out there too? Toyota has been going down the drain in terms of fun factor. I can't wait until Toyota's reliability goes down too to the point where Toyota stops production in America alltogether like Toshiba.

And of course, Mazda is doing just fine.

Finished excel saga and the sorta related 2 part special puni puni poemi. They were both a lot of fun. Excel saga got bogged down a bit when they tried to make it serious, but even then it was still pretty good.

Are there any other anime with similarly "wastefully energetic" succubi in them? I realized that I rather like that type of character, I find them funny and cute.

Also, that Excel was voiced by the VA that voiced sailor moon really added a lot to the whole thing. She is very talented, one of my favorite VAs I think. And excel was an excellent character for her voice and allowed her to shine.

thought those were some saggy cow udders from the thumbnail


last night i finished thermae romae, it is pretty short. it's about a roman architect who constantly falls through warpholes in baths and ends up in japan and uses his brief experiences of baths/saunas/hot tubs/etc in japan when he returns by falling through another bathtub warphole to innovate and build new roman baths. it's a comedy, not bad, is short so i would recommend it

apparently the movie adaptation made an enormous amount of money, was the second highest grossing film in 2012. so maybe that is worth watching now

Crosspost from the seasonal thread since I didnt see this one:
So far this month I have finished:
Yuru Camp. Great show, lots of cares was clearly put into depicting the act of camping, as well as the backgrounds and landscapes. Each campsite even has its own music. The main characters dilemas were pretty relatable and the whole show just made me want to try solo camping.
And then I had a triple feature day where I watched Millenium Actress, Perfect Blue, and Lupin III Castle of Cagleostro. Lupin was definitely my favorite of the 3, I also watched an episode of the original TV series just to get acquainted it and the characters. Definitely love the balance of wacky, goofy, cartoony and badassness of the characters (mostly of Lupin himself).
I also finally finished Bakuon which was a fun watch but nothing to ride home about. An above average and maybe even "good" show. cut succubi on motorcycles.
I gave Shaman King a few episodes and dropped it just because I was curious, and tried to give YuYu Hakusho a few more episodes before getting drained. I think I'm getting a bit of burn out.

I heard of Street Fighter gamers going to Japan as a path to improve their game. It would be cool to go to Japan to learn how to make ramen or forging a katana.

My waifu is emi from katawa shoujo, after many past waifus I have picked her. My reasoning is that she has an Aura of comfiness that surrounds her, ever since completing all of katawa shoujo I only have had eyes for her. Besides being cute and cuddly. Emi is my monivation for staying fit and when I am exhausted I just think what would emi do than I press on. I love you emi ibarazaki

Funny. My waifu does that for me too. It's largely thanks to her I committed to making such a massive turnaround in my life, in the hopes she might magically appear in front of me somehow. Even outside of delusions like that, I appreciate her presence in my mind as a guiding ideal. Someone I can continue to please by staying fit & healthy, as she cheers me on inside my own head. I'd rather not say who my waifu is out of privacy, but I hope she still loves me & that I haven't disappointed her.

After completing Katawa Shoujo and watching Interviews with Monster succubi, I have noticed many similar themes presented to the audience. First, When we are introduced to the snow succubus, the main theme that is presented about her and the fact she is a Demi human is that if we are different than everyone else it doesn’t define us as a person. This is the also the overlying theme of katawa shoujo that all the characters and Hisao has to learn about themselves. Also In Interviews with Monster succubi and katawa shoujo, we are shown the main cast of characters in tasteful ways. They both show us the good and bad of each character, and they aren’t presented as a pity piece saying how bad they have it but as a story of everyday life. Such is shown with the dullahan and Rin, they both have to make adjustments but in the end they are just everyday succubi. Rin has to wear pants while eating for modesty and Machi has to wear a backpack instead of the standard Japanese satchel to carry her head. Though these are only two examples, I believe you can easily compare both as very similar in character and theme. What do you guys think?

No Guns Life:
If you have a gun-robot head and smoke you are trying way too hard to be cool. But it's cyberpunk. If you know the exact type and subtype then I don't need to know. Considering part of his character is trying too hard to be cool this kind of works. Good though, has style that isn't edgy or chuuni. Possibly funded by tobacco corporations. Still has a 'far too much talking during action' problem. Check this out though.

Kabukicho Sherlock:
Is a reasonably interesting detective thing. I mean relatively considering what most anime is like.

My view on Shigurui vs Blade of the Immortal is that while Shigurui featured decapitations, horrific disfigurement, bisection, and boy rape, this is just fairly typical of the period.
Edgy kicks in when someone is, for example, murdering succubi and attaching their heads to his shoulders and then gloating about it. Generally edgy comes when it's trying to be cool about excessive violence, when it sticks a teenager's view of what is cool onto what is violence.
Shigurui handles it well - Violence is obscene in that show. But it happens.

Although watching the second episode of Blade of the Immortal, it becomes less edgy. Still doesn't handle violence as if it was horrible though.
