Do you ever watch shitty/obscure/forgotten anime just for the hell of it?http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2bml9_is-littlekuriboh-writing-for-yu-gi_fun#.UbxvqfnqlEI
I haven't kept up with anime trends in a long time, last thing I really remember was when K-on and PAnty stocking were all the rage
I don't know if they're shitty or obscure, but the majority of the anime I watch are pretty old, 80's and 90's usually, and some 10's
It's kinda painful to think how much effort might have been put into them, or how loved they might have been, but now they're completely forgotten and tossed away and how indicative of their age they may be(usually 00's anime), I don't know why those thoughts come sometime.
No joke, this was the first anime besides pokemon that I've enthusiastically followed
Is it shitty? I got it just before nyaa died. This would be my first anime in many years. It looks hilarious.
Not OP, but it's pretty entertaining and the art style and animation is unique, even when trying to imitate American 00's cartoons. The main characters might be a major turn-off to some wizards, but the major draw-in is the crude humor, and it's still an old favorite of mine
K-On still has a huge cult following and Panty & Stocking is far from obscure or forgotten.
And how is that unfunny HP gif related to anime?
Most 20th century anime is obscure now beyond the huge titles. So, yes.
That's practically the only stuff I'm interested in.
there's a manga sequel thats being translated currently
I'm just absolutely amazed how anime of today is so radically different in style and format from anime 10-20 years ago. Something made in 2008 has more in common with something from 1998 or even 1988 than something from 2018. I feel like the characters have become really unbearable and annoying in a way they never were before.

No, you are clearly exaggerating wa too much. General anime stylistics were pretty much streamlined since early 2000s. 90s had a very different style.
Haven't watched anything from the last several seasons yet though. But I doubt 2018 anime is so much different from, say, 2016.
is that bobobobobobo?
Everything is CGI now + anime is no longer usually inspired by real life stuff, instead otaku make anime based on their favorite anime or hentai artist and other otaku get the same idea and so on, like an ouroboros, resulting in rainbow-haired abstract personification moeblob succubus/trap with an annoying irredeemable personality #8717263955
>>26518>anime is no longer usually inspired by real life stuff
And that's an absolutely good thing. That's what makes modern anime better than "olsdschool" normgroid-oriented westaboo crap.
Any suggestions for good modern anime without flavor of the month waifu stuff and a cast that isn't entirely/majority succubi?
Or even better: go watch tv dramas with le realistic cast. That'd be up your valley. In fact, many normgroids in anime fandom eventually fucked off to watching movies and dramas, so it's not like the path isn't well-trodden.
'le le le le you're a normgroid (can't say normalfag because that'd be non-pc, bigot!) le le le le le le le'
Are your striped socks on too tight?
Nice projection, normgroid.
Seriously tho, try out some tv series. Not even necessarily Japanese. Like Doctor House, for example. Or Game of Thrones. I can guarantee it will be rrrright up your alley. Very mature and with real-life inspirations, lol.
I remember seeing that one, at least the succubi are purposely horrible and meant comedically
Westerners loved it, but Japanese Otakus "cringed" at it or whatever the equivalent of cringe is for them, so a season 2 is highly unlikely. I didn't cared for it honestly.
>Obscure and forgotten anime
>K-On and Panty & Stocking
This, not sure how popular P&S was again but K-On was one of the biggest things in anime when it just aired. It's like saying Haruhi is obscure because it aged a bit.
I don't think OP was saying that K-On and P&S are obscure/forgotten. He most likely meant that he hasn't been following anime trends closely since K-On and P&S were being popular.
It's EXACTLY what he meant. Those guys are probably trying to show off too hard that they didn't bother to read twice.
The reason there's no season 2 is because half of Gainax left to form Trigger
Well now that I understand OP's point I'd say that he's the one showing off by boasting about how little he knows of modern trends when pretty much no one here cares about modern anime anymore as proven by the amount of posts about 80s and 90s anime.
I watched the first episode of K-ON and could instantly recognize that it was moe trash
Anyone remember Excel Saga? That show is the definition of "meh".
it has some shit episodes but overall it's still funny and holds up well
I know it ISN'T obscure but this post is the first mention of Haruhi I've seen in about 5 years. It's a shame because it was an alright series with a lot of spin-off content, but kids getting in to anime now will probably never end up indulging in it.
I don't even pay attention to weather it's obscure or not. If I find and anime that I like the look of I watch it.
This. Fuck what the normies think. I like anime I like, not because it's popular or obscure.
>Do you ever watch shitty/obscure/forgotten anime just for the hell of it?
All the time.
Currently watching a show called
Those who hunt for elves.
The first season was abysmal but the second one has gotten the hang of the jokes, tone, and animation/budget limitations. >>23425
Me and most of my household loved how silly that show was. Mom hated it and thought it was incomprehensibly dumb though (she wasn't wrong). Didn't even care that most of the jokes were Japaneses puns that didn't translate at all. The whole thing was absurd and the nonsensical puns that didn't translate just added to the charm.
The promised neverland was pretty good.
How modern is modern? Hunter x Hunter was made in 2011 or so, also JJBA is still airing. There's also mushishi and monster for more toned down stuff.
I remember being a big fan of Ranma when I was young, that series used to be pretty big in my country, to the point that they even sold stuff like coloring books of it.
Its a pretty fun series, but drags on at times, specially when they focus on Happosai who is really annoying.
>>23424>K-on and Panty Stocking were the rage
Holy shit, 2010 was TEN years ago…
>Do you ever watch shitty/obscure/forgotten anime just for the hell of it?
That describes a 1/3 of what I watch.
The other 1/3 is random well known stuff that took me forever to get around to. And the last 1/3 is stuff actually made in the last couple years.
Most comedy anime/manga tends to fall into a rut real quick, especially when they let it run for as long as Ranma did
Is Creamy Mami any good?
It's good in short doses. Maybe 2-3 episodes a day.
anyway i watched pic related recently. it was alright but ending was kind of lame. anons on other chans say that mango is really good.
I like El Hazard. Does that count?
YES, its the tits you get to find so many kickass animes that going back to regular shows is hard
>>23684>The main characters might be a major turn-off to some wizards
To me, the characters capture the way succubi behave in my very specific corner of North bay California. I have never seen it depicted accurately in any other form of media. It's kind of endearing because of its familiarity.
That hasn't stopped Evangelion from continuing to be made whether we like it or not.
