What are you watching?
What are you enjoying?
What have you dropped?
What are you looking forward to next season?
Previous: >>31249


Next season looks promising. Lots of good shows to look forward to: The promised neverland season 2, The final season of Shingeki no Kyojin, The rest of Kingdom S3, Dr Stone S2, Slime S2, Doupou Cangqiong S4, more Doulou Dalu.


School days. I just reached the 6th episode and it seems to be some sort of psychological horror instead of the drama I expected. Thinking about dropping it not because it's bad, but because I'm not prepared to watch the horrible train wreck that's obviously approaching.
My two complaints are that there's too much ecchi(I hate ecchi), and a lot of important text isn't translated. When characters send texts or pass notes to each other I have to rely on my absolutely meager japanese skills if it's something simple like "Let's go meet at the park after 6" or pause and open my dictionary if it uses more complex kanji. That's super inconvenient.


Anime dropped. I can't watch this bullshit, waifus aren't meant to be abused

魔王城でおやすみ aka Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle Ending


I'm 9 episodes into dirty pair flash, this is the redux of some 80s anime with better animation and humor and better boobies, it's a pretty good show for casual viewing, also I can't find anything else worthwhile to watch lately


halfway through Zeta Gundam… it's a interesting show to say the least


The first episode of this season of Shingeki no Kyojin was very interesting. I think it's going to be a good end to a good show.


School Days is one of the most original and overall one of the best anime ever. What was your problem with it?


File: 1607548465098.png (951.98 KB, 702x1000, 351:500, ClipboardImage.png) ImgOps iqdb

Watching sailor moon and I have to say if it was not for Usagi being so dame cute I would not be watching it.
I finished all of what is out of kuma kuma kuma bear and I do suggest other wizzies that enjoy moeshit watch it as it is cute and SOL.


It does seem really good and original. I just do not have the fortitude to survive 12 episodes of an evil villain MC emotionally destroying his gf. At episode 6, which is where I quit, I was already getting highly disturbed and not in the horror way, it was in the "absolutely not comfy at all" way that makes me feel like taking a one hour shower and sleeping for a whole day.


Have you noticed a trend in anime towards less conflict? I just watched kuma kuma kuma bear and it was amazing that they actually managed to create a fantasy anime with even more OP character and less plot tension than previous entries like that slime show or that succubus with a shield. Everything is just offered up to the MC on a silver platter without having to expend any effort.

Do you think this says something about the viewer base that we demand less and less plot tension each season? I have to say even though I was bored through much of the show and had to skip forward I found it comfy and watchable while sometimes things that are objectively better than this anime tend to lose my interest. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my short attention span and general laziness. This show takes zero effort to watch and comprehend. I find myself drawn more and more to that sort of show.


I read the WN a while ago, I enjoyed it. She's a Mary Sue, but done in an enjoyable enough way.


She's only sort of a mary sue, it's mostly just that she has insane plot armor. Like eggs exist and are super expensive but somehow no one has ever thought of farming chickens before? And cheese exists but it just hasn't really caught on yet? And of course her literal armor and all the other ridiculously convenient things that just pop out of nowhere for her with zero effort. It's kind of like if a normal person who was just fucking around got an insane cheat code to life which is what makes it fun. The only thing that fucks it up is how she was some sort of day trading stock genius at the start. It would have been better if she was just some normal neet video game addict, not a self sufficient genius one.


just started the orphen remake, I don't remember what the original was like but the MC this time is being a whiny little shit with a nee-san complex and the fourth episode was some worthless school days flashback crap with a mean gurl going around sadistically hitting and threatening the boys, I deleted that episode about 6 minutes in, not sure if I'll watch the rest of this mess, it probably gets worse


Started Soul Eater, watched about 5 episodes. The characters are a bit too wacky for my taste, but the animation is nice so I'm gonna keep watching for now, maybe I'll get hooked


I just found a post on MAL claiming A record of a mortal's journey to immortality is getting a second season starting in February with 48 episodes. I'm looking forward to that. I thought the first season was pretty good.


Thursday is the only day I have without an anime I'm watching airing so I decided to pick up watching akudama drive. Just finished episode 2. I nearly stopped watching when he starts swinging his motorcycle from buildings like spiderman but I didn't and I'm glad I kept going. So far this is kind of ridiculously over the top but it's fun.


does anyone else watch kaiketsu zorori? the new season that was fansubbed this year looks great and funnier than previous ones


I picked up two more chinese shows. Swallowed Star and Knights on Debris. They are both mixed sci-fi and fantasy action shows and so far they've been pretty good.

Is the Order a Rabbit? ご注文はうさぎですか?, Hepburn: Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka?


Man I love how stylized the action for anime by Trigger is in all their works.

Finally got around to watching BNA. Wasn't sold on it at first but once the action kicked off I was hooked.

As of now I'm watching Hellsing Ultimate. I really enjoy it for what it is. I also really like that boygirl nazi and police succubus. Many unwizardly thoughts of them. It's kind of a dumb show but it's really entertaining.


Youjo Senki, I guess it's alright, I'm almost done. The anime is kinda serious but I just can't imagine why they would make the main character a 9 year old succubus, so I can't help but feel it's all very silly. Hopefully in the movie they explain why they did this.


>I just can't imagine why they would make the main character a 9 year old succubus

there's a specific demographic that the author was aiming for and managed to hit good. if you don't get why then you don't get why, and no amount of explaining will make you understand exactly. i'm among the group that read the novels, even preordering them, just because it appeals to me so much that she's a 9 year old suc witch thrown in to a bloody war. it clicks on a soul level.


>if you don't get why then you don't get why, and no amount of explaining will make you understand exactly
Ok I understand (that I won't understand). Kinda feel like I'm missing out, but what am I gonna do, I'm just going to watch the movie and be done with it.


Schrodinger is the best side-character in Helsing.


I liked rip van winkle


Sorry, not dead, just lazy.

Last season:
Taishou Zamurai:

Very solid anime about aging gymnast. Runs through themes of going to the next generation, expectations and retirement and also motivation. Builds up well and stays relevant for the most part. That talking bird though.

100-man no Inochi no Ue ni Ore wa TatteIru:
Not bad actually. Super inconsistent tone, but it works well for contrasting the elements. Somehow. But it's pretty chuuni. PRotduction is fine, and the story looks like it's going completely mad. I will say that it was fun. A fun show is definitely worth someone's time.

Munou na Nana:
First episode has a plot twist but it gets pretty forumlaeic after that. It's fun, and there's some twists - It stays unpredictable but not in a good way since you're just waiting for the twist every single time. Oh here it is, not surprised. Twists only work if they're a surprise. If you're actively waiting for it, it's not a twist but just something they don't tell you until later. Still that said I recommend this since it's fun the whole way through.

Maoujou de Oyasumi:
Cute, that's about it. Makes me giggle about how soft and nice everything is and how pointless everyone's struggles are. Except the princess, of course. Worth watching if you want cute things to see.

Akudama Drive:
Pretty good. Highly recommended. Not deep at all but has enough of a side-loading of high-technology dystopia to make it interesting overall. Very pretty and is violent without being edgy or embarassing.

Adachi to Shimamura:
Very sweet. I don't understand most of what is going on but the cute succubi are nice.

Assault Lili:
Plot was so formless and pointless that it was more or less big bad things appear and the characters pull out enough friendship to defeat them. But this isn't the point of assault lili, the point was the yuri. The animation was great in the fights but I had zero investment in them, and basically just watched because yuri.

Kami-tachi ni Hirowareta Otoko:
Curious pandering isekai. The actual content itself is bland and nothing happens, it's basically a story about how everything works out suddenly and things are just nice and good all the time. The interest comes from the back story; the show actually reveals a horribly depressed author who is not having a good time. The desire to have a fantasy where things are nice, people are kind, and there's no sadness shows. Especially since his main character worked a miserable job, was overworked, his mother died, and was clearly going through bad times. Then he gets isekaied. The show itself reflects it; like the main character cleans sewers and does laundry. Hardly ambitious, but refective of the kind of mindset.

Maesetsu! Opening Act!:
Not a fan of the comedy but hey it's cute enough. Not much is going on but the characters are fairly distinct and they work well together. I ended up enjoying it near the end because it was cosy.

Senyoku no Sigrdrifa:
Excellent production values marred by a plot that was bland and pointless. I'd have loved to see the same team that did this work on something with depth and purpose. Looks great, has great characters that are expressive, the scenes are well framed, timed, etc. But I gave zero fucks about the plot.

Majo no Tabitabi:
Basically a Kino no Tabi clone with a witches' broom instead of a motorbike. Has the same feel to it, and is quite good.

Rail Romanesque:
Short that I gave zero fucks about but kept watching because it was 5 minutes long and contianed cute anime succubi.

Bessatsu Olympia Kyklos:
Finally ended. Recommended, since it's a fun claymation anime about ancient greece and the olympics.


First Episode impressions from this season:
Skate Leading Stars:
Male figure skating. Shouty main character. Cute boys. Not giving a shit. Would probably pass the gender swap test though.

Toutotsu ni Egypt Kami:
Egyptian god lore put into anime format. Not anime succubi though unfortunately. Kind of uninteresting

Youjo Shachou:
Loud. It's a loud comedy. One of those multi-shorts that thinks that the louder something is the funnier it is.

Urasekai Picnic:
Something good. It's very STALKER inspired. They go into this otherworld 'zone' full of craziness and try and make a profit by collecting artefacts. It's good.

Abciee Shuugyou Nikki:
Some weird short thing. Not really interested.

Hortensia Saga:
Kings, retainers, furries. Immensely uninteresting, except all the male voice actors are pretty high tier. Not badly made though

Soukou Musume Senki :
Fairly fun and lively succubus mecha kind of thing. Decent enough to check out.

Probably one of the best "I wanna be" things I've seen in a while. It's cute so I'm watching. Sometimes I feel really simple. Actually check this one out though… it gets weird in the 00 episode.

Male idols, pass.

Seiin Koukou Danshi Volley-bu:

Tenchi Souzou Design-bu:
Designing animals. God outsourced the design of animals to angels, and one of them is an intern. This is.. I don't even. I guess it teaches you about animals, but it's pretty much the wrong attitude.

High frame rate 3DCG idols. Huh.

Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun:
..And then a succubus appears. And it's the class ace. Tries to teach a person to not be a wizard. This may be the least wizardly thing ever. It's like a misaki. There's some value here though; my view is that it's better to laugh at normies from above than below. This anime is from the fake it until you make it school. Might as well adda warning to this one; the main character is lectured about not making any effort in real life.

Project Scard:
Handsome men with superpowers and it's dumb. It's pretty gay.

Ore dake Haireru Kakushi Dungeon:
Sure is a fantasy. Okay the plot is basically the main character needs to do lewd things to regain magic power. Oh boy. Pretty fun though.

Kumo desu ga, Nani ka:
I got isekaied as a space spider. Top tier seiyuu. Very fun.

Back Arrow:
China in space. With a great wall and everything. Reasonably well made but I'm not interested. Actually slightly interesting with the whole post-civilisation thing.

"Next year you'll be studying for college entrance exams…" succubus looking after kid gets a bishonen interested in her. Oh booooy. Muh secret life, muh hidden romance, muh appeal, etc etc. Pass.

Kemono Jihen:
Decent occult mystery. Abandoned boy, Japanese mindset about people they don't like. More kids appear though. While pretty gorey it's still a kid show.

Idoly Pride:
Hilariously cute idol designs, way too fucking much IS THIS A JOKE. This feels like satire, and there are so many opportunities they missed to actually make this really funny. Like when they're putting their hands in at the middle, there should be 2-3 extra hands and no-one notices. There are far too many idols in this group. I mean the succubi are cute but it's so boring.

I'm not biased against 3D anime but the producers of this one seem to be … inexperienced, we'll say. This is hilariously bad what the flying fuck. Let's see; the OP usually shows off their best animation, and it's terrible. It has value as being funny bad.

Kai Byoui Ramune:
Stress bad. Unrealistically nutty characters good. Way too exaggerated. I suppose that isn't the evils of people's hearts but just demons and spirits. Okay bro.

Isekai wow. It's okay. The art is cute and nice and it's kinda just pleasant.

Wonder Egg Priority:
Weird name, cute. Gotta be kyoani. succubus bullied for being cute gets involved in highschool drama and it's like wooah time to dream my life away. Pretty nice.

World Witches Hassin Shimasu!:
More strike witches.

Wave!! Surfing Yappe!!:
Cute boys surfing. Wait what, tempting to watch for one character in particular. Not that tempting.

Kaifuku Jutsushi no Yarinaoshi:
Revenge fantasy. Kinda funny actually. Dude gets revenge on succubus that may or may not involve requiring an uncesnored version. Booba appear and it's clearly ero.


back arrow is cool. i think the name is a pun from the naked guy scene, like baka-ero meaning sexy-idiot perhaps? it's weird and fun. there have been many small bits that crack me up. really happy about this one

hortensia saga is kind of boring but im watching it anyway

jujutsu kaisen season 2. it's still good. reminds me of old naruto somewhat

havent started but plan to watch:
tatoeba last dungeon
kemono jihen
jaku chara
ore dake haireru kakushi dungeon
kumo desu ga
kings raid
the new slime anime
the new shingeki no kyojin
the new log horizon
the new re:zero

from the last season, or the season before? i ended up not finishing magatsu wah…, 100-man no…, the 8th son, some others


I'm loving the new season of SnK, every episode leaves me wanting more, thinking about reading the manga, but I have to start from the begining to so I don't know. I've seen people complaining about the animation and particularly the CGI, but I didn't think it was that bad.


wait i thought the mushoku tenssi was a new season for the slime anime. turns out it is instead based on an old light novel i remember reading like 2014. god thats so cool. at least if im not remembering this incorrectly again

I started watching Jujutsu Kaisen because I wanted some fun shonen to pass the time
Its pretty cool so far, the animation looks great and the characters are likeable, plot seems kind of basic but I don't ask much of a shonen


it's really bland but I do like that succubus


I started watching it last week too, it's pretty nice.


File: 1612365003404.jpg (57.91 KB, 1024x576, 16:9, blackclover01-1024x576.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

I started watching Black clover where I had left it (around ep 120, when they kill that devil guy) but now I've heard the show has been cancelled and there's only like 6 episodes left, should I watch the ~50 episodes I have left? Does anything cool happen?


School Days is actually pretty meh, the only good thing about it was the ending and the "le nice boat xD" meme shit but that was more than a decade ago.

The ending is kino, other than that the game is better in every way.


Sakamoto desu ga


Cancelled? How? Btw After the elf arc they pulled a massive filler so watch out for it. The manga is still not finished but the anime is close so I think BC will be on a hiatus instead. The show is pretty popular in Japan (and abroad) so I don't think it'll get axed.

File: 1613757699072.jpg (103.8 KB, 400x540, 20:27, caroleandtuesday.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

Made by the same director/animators as cowboy bebop/samurai champloo. Awesome songs and likable characters so far. I love the whole urban template it gives the show a very melancholy tone.


File: 1613846357437.jpg (93.25 KB, 400x559, 400:559, 1.jpg) ImgOps iqdb

…i thought i'm done with anime, but here we are.

So, should i even try this one?
Does it have
>good comedy?
>intriguing plot?
>at least some finished story arcs and not an everlasting circlejerk?


watching that old Votoms TV series and can't see why it has a massive fan following, especially outside japan, I like retro stuff and mechs but I've never seen something this dull


I finished Interspecies reviewers and Goblin Slayer recently. Outragefags try to make you expect that they're something edgy but it's really nothing. First Goblin Slayer episode is okay then it's just typical below average trash after that. Interspecies Reviewers is too repetitive which makes it very mundane. If you see one episode, you've seen them all. I like progression in the story. And the humor is very meh, it didn't really do anything for me. Below average anime overall. Now i'm watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes. It's pretty great so far. Also have been watching Kumo Desu ga, Nanika? for something current and fun.


typical "goblin slayer is below average trash after first ep" comment followed by praise for legend of galactic heroes, lol, you people are all the same


A lot of old /m/ stuff isn't watched. It's just popular because it's popular.


try watching neon genesis evangelion


Watching Mobile Suit Gundam, 10 episodes in. It's pretty decent, a bit strangely directed and pacing is slow but I can't complain too much considering the age. Will probably give a 7/10 when I finish it.


I stick to what I said. goblin slayer is bad. logh is good.


rewatching spice and wolf after 6 years of having seen it and it is very good exactly how a romance type anime should be sadly never finished but may read the LN after finishing it.
We need more merchant type anime and manga IMO.

Watching sora no woto also it is very cute remins me of haibane renmei but with K-on like character style.


Honestly, I can believe that most people out there are not watching a lot of the crap they're hyping online.
No. The level of popularity around it makes it a little too good to be true.


AoT S4
Higurashi Gou
I have to force myself to finish every episode in one sitting.


All of those pre-EVA mecha shows are honestly dreadful, I tried really hard to be a /m/an and just couldn't stand them. I guess Gundam and Macross were alright


I generally just disliked most space operas from the 80s or earlier, which most mech shows from that time were.
Other then that only the pre-70s stuff was hard to sit through for me. Gigantor may be historic but it's also pretty shit compared to stuff that came out later. Astro boy was surprisingly enjoyable though. But that doesn't count. Just saying.


what's eva? I just finished all the votoms TV and oav stuff, I tried to like it but therelots of was simply nothing worthwhile about these shows and my time was wasted, I'm open to suggestions if actually good mech shows exist that aren't gundam or have lolishit in them, I don't have much time left in this world to waste on bad anime


>I don't have much time left in this world to waste on bad anime
Suicide or illness?


>what's eva?

I guess it depends on what you want from a mech show but I like Eureka Seven, The Big O and Full Metal Panic


>what's eva?
Neon Genesis Evangelion
It's a deconstruction of the mech genera that was revolutionary for it's time but probably hasn't aged well now that we are awash in deconstructions of everything.
I actually prefer RahXephon over EVA because the story is better constructed and the characters don't piss me off, even though RahXephon is a blatant rip off.
> I'm open to suggestions if actually good mech shows exist that aren't gundam or have lolishit in them
Patlabor is the first thing that pops into my mind.
Macross/robotech is another classic series/franchise that has a lot of good content.

One that I am about to check out and heard good things about is Gasaraki.
It is more serious and "realistic" then most mech anime but in a good way.

I also loved Big O, so you could give that a shot if you want.


the anime adaptation is pretty bad, read the manga


I dunno
evangelion honestly looks dumb and more about people and their faggy relationships than about mechs, I see it's also insanely popular with weebs which is a red flag for me, I don't know if I've seen macross but I watched the patlabor movie(s) long ago, meh, saw robotech in the 80s and didn't really care

big O though was the shit, this week is the 20th anniversary of when it premiered on cartoon network btw, I still get emotional thinking about how awesome the mechs are, oof… that show was the best

gonna check out macross and that other one later


it's not important


I heard they were finishing it on March and it doesn't sound like it's coming back.
I already have a lot of manga on backlog, I think I'll just stop.


The Patlabor mobile police show was pretty good too if you only watched the movies.


No guarantee but it's likely a new season of Black Clover will be made in a few years when they have more manga to adapt, like what happened to Fairy Tail and Blech




I'm watching the new season of the slime anime, all of sudden it's getting violent and dark and characters are dying. This is not enjoyable. One of the reasons I loved this show was everyone being happy and building a prosperous human + monster civilization. Now it's all gone to hell. Man…


It used to be a meme that Kemono Friends reduces the viewer's IQ. I have found an anime for which this might actually be true. An anime about an intellectually-disabled baby designed to be viewed by intellectually-disabled babies.



>a meme that Kemono Friends reduces the viewer's IQ

it's cute and endearing. let it reduce, fuck it


I remember when they played milk chan late on adult swim.
I thought it was one of their original productions.
It's one of those dumb/shit on purpose shows that adult swim and adult cartoons in general are so fond of.


It genuinely sickens me that kemono friends is liked by anyone


What's wrong with liking cute things? Moeshit helps me go to sleep. Sorry we can't all be negative nancy crabs in a bucket 24/7 like you. Anime elitists sicken me


Ignore the haters wizzie there is nothing wrong with watching moe and enjoying it for being what it is I find that it is only midwits who hate on people who enjoy moe because they think they are smart for being able to watch deathnote or the big bang theory and rick and morty.


It is pretty charming in a low budget but wholesome way.
Normally I am a stickler for animation quality but they managed to use writing, great performances, and most importantly likable characters to make up for their obvious short comings.

I was almost certain I was going to hate it but they won me over in the second half of the first ep.
Just wish they didn't lean so hard on the mystery box format, as now there are way too many questions that will probably never get proper answers to since the project has wrapped up.


I'm starting to think Milk Chan might be based because it makes at least one joke at the expense of trannies in every episode. Gone are the days of anything remotely transphobic on American television.


whats the mikchan show I am very interested thank you.

why did he do it?


because it was shit writing from the start, kid
*shurikens you*


it is a good show. it is unabashedly stupid. there are so many more shows worse than this that are acclaimed like bones, csi and law & order (forget all the dumb anime taking themselves seriously).


the original Law and Order is good.

I just finished Perfect Blue. I really really enjoyed the storyline of this one. Highly highly recommended. You can also watch it on Youtube.




Just dropped log horizon for like the fourth time. I regret watching as much of the show as I did. So much potential for a comfy video game isekai squandered by painful comedic relief, annoying characters and pedo shit.


Nah, it's way better with some plot tension for the characters to overcome. It would be boring as shit otherwise.


the whole anime is like watching naruto filler episodes just pure cringe

Glad to hear I shouldn't power through it.
I'm not sure why I even bother starting "isekai" anime. The tag in itself serves like a red flag.


Like any trend/trope in anime there is a bit of good and a whole lot of bad.
Hell, I remember back in the day when it was used to be a female focused genera for the most part.


this week's episode of tensei shitara slime datta ken was pretty brutal for a TV anime, man… kids in japan are watching this shit? a character's head was chopped off while he was on Slo-Mo with a lingering scene dedicated to his still-conscious, post-decapitation torment


That's just usual shounen violence. Have you never watched anime before?


I've seen tons and that scene was not usual


that comedy with secret agent 6 i forget the name

reminded me of ixion saga

I've been watching this, it's fine, except her voice, I imagined it different, she sounds like a 8 year old instead of a high schooler.

Also you can see how different (and better) 2D succubi are compared to 3DPD, nagatoro may bully that weak ass senpai a lot (who wouldn't? even I want to bully that guy a bit in good faith) but she doesn't want to harm him in any way and actually apologized 3 times when she went a bit too far making him cry or pushing him to the water, she just wants to tease him because it's funny,and later because she likes him.

an actual 3DPD would destroy him just because she can, then her idiot simp boyfriend would beat the fuck out of poor sempai, maybe she would #metoo him and send him to jail.


That's only cause it's been sanitized and watered downed. The original web comic was pretty hardcore femdom, and nagatoro really fucked with him.


Yes I know, I started reading the manga long before the anime was even announced (that's why I imagined her having a different voice)

Still I don't think nagatoro is a bad person, she's just as conflicted as every other tsundere, much better than any 3DPD I know.


i was afraid this would happen
they turned one of the most iconic imageboard characters into a generic tsudere

I'm watching that new spider isekai, the premise is typical mysterious-death-and-reincarnation crap but the MC is leveling into some sort of god-like being that scares the hell out of the humans and I'm interested to see where this story goes, which takes places over 15 years in the show

there's also a bunch of humans who re-incarnate as people but their stories are dumb and boring


Just be warned that she turns back into a human looking succubus at some point, but that’s pretty far down the line. Like it won’t be for another few seasons if it even gets more.


thanks for spoiling it, anyway I already deduced that part at around episode 9, I doubt they're drawing this show out to 4 seasons too, so whatever……


whoa, that new gojira show looks fun, even if it's from gay netflix


>softcore porn with a dumbass plot
You just described most anime dude, I miss when things still had a story to tell besides fanservice shit with a stupid plot that makes 0 sense even in Japan.


Should I watch Mawaru Penguindom? My only knowledge of it is the attached meme. I just found out the name of the anime behind this today.


Did you see it from those Linux memes? Also probably not, what I watched of it was pretty boring.


Watching this too, I was expecting a funny mostly drama-free anime, not sure I like the direction it's taking.


what direction do you see it taking? I can see the spider MC eventually sides with evil, she becomes that silent white-robed human succubus in the demon lord's entourage and killed the dumbass prince in episode 11. The direction seems to be humans lose to monsters, which is always good as far as I'm concerned.


I dropped it after an episode or two many years ago. Can't recall why exactly


Vivy is this season's best show for me so far even though I normally hate anything having to do with idols or time travel and this one has both.


Watching Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight! it is a show i started watching as I was looking for a moe experience however the anime actually has a lot of depth and is all about moving forward in life as well as interpersonal relationships.

The anime is cute the first episode has loli fan service however it drops off in frequency as the series continues but I do not mind as there is still plenty of cute scenes and mild fan service.

Dragon Ball Z: The History of Trunks
The History of Trunks tells the story of Future Trunks and his life during the time where the androids have the world under siege. It is unique among Dragon Ball movies/specials since it is actually based on a brief chapter in the Dragon Ball manga, called "Trunks The History - The Lone Warrior"

10/10 special

Dragon ball: Episode of Bardock
Bardock survives the destruction of his home planet and the genocide of his entire race, having been sent into the past to a strange planet where he battles Frieza's ancestor, Chilled.

5/10 mediocre


Japan Olympics


This, like the Saiyaman saga, shows how good Z might have been with Goku staying dead.


Demon Slayer [Kimetsu no Yaiba]


any good?


A solid if somewhat predictable shonen fighting anime but executed well.


Re Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu
It looked pretty gay at first, but the story gets interesting soon in, I've been enjoying the development of things except since around episode 15 the MC is turning into a little faggot bitch with emotional breakdowns at every turn that drag on for minutes at a time. Now I've seen some melodramatic animes, but jesus christ…there hasn't been anything this overwrought in the history of earth.

I started fast forwarding past those useless scenes. If I heard MC scream "DAKARAAA!!" at someone one more time I would've isekai'd over there myself and strangled him. Too bad he's immortal, and resurrected like 50 times already. But don't let immortality stop him from breaking down every time danger appears.

Outside of those horrible scenes this show's great.


Yeah that made me drop the show. At first it was a kind of nice twist on the isekai thing but holy shit he doesn’t need to have a breakdown every fucking time.


I take back >>36897 , this show sucks. Now it's season 2 and every character is a whiny fag and all 26 episodes are about everyone bawling nonstop about pointless horseshit leaving the story completely behind in season 1. What a disaster.


Anyone watching megalobox season 2? It's really good. I love the art style, it's retro but done with more polish and they make really good use of color. The story is also much better than season 1 imo, more well done drama that hits you right in the feels.


what feels


Echoing >>36952. The writing hasn't leveled up much and still goes from incredibly obvious (Chief), to utterly obnoxious (everything Sachiko and Nanbu). I suppose Mac's circumstances hold potential to be impactful, especially when Joe really starts getting involved, but so far the only thing I'm really feeling is sad for Joe losing his beard and more mediocre boxing.

It's better than S1, which itself wasn't terrible, but only just barely.

I'm watching the Shaman King remake right now, its pretty shitty so far. The animation is super stiff and the pacing is way too rushed, I'm not saying that the OG shaman king is a masterpiece, but its a way better shonen than this adaptation makes it out to be.
I only keep watching because I want to see if they adapt the ending properly.


Same problem with Record of Ragnarok anime. Really stiff and low-framerate animation for a FIGHTING anime.


That full dive RPG show is so damn terrible. I kept watching it waiting for it to get better but it just keeps getting worse.


What are you guys going to watch this season? Nothing really looks that interesting to me.


at a glance, this season looks pretty dogshit

Jahy, dragon maid, magia record, higurashi


I haven't done the seasonal anime thing in 10 or so years.
I just watch what I want to watch at whatever pace I please after the season is completed.


I used to do that but then I watched all the highly rated shows in the categories I like. I find that the ratings on MAL are pretty accurate most of the time. I rarely enjoy anything rated below a 7 and I'm too lazy to wade through the garbage to find stuff that I might enjoy, so I just wait for new stuff to come out. There are usually a few shows that are good each season.


I have a high tolerance for garbage and I don't use mal.
Part of the fun is browsing my favorite streaming sites and picking something out that fits my mood. Be it something from last season or something from decades ago. If it's bad I make fun of it. If it's good I get absorbed in it. If it's boring then I give it a few episodes to pick up then if it still didn't hook me then I drop it.
I have been surprised by all sorts of shows and disappointed by flavors of the season that had flash in the pan popularity. Plus my taste are my own. There are shows I enjoy greatly that many find boring and shows that are juggernauts of popularity that I can't stand without a overabundance of sarcasm.

I started watching vanitas, your average supernatural action anime with gay undertones, but the animation is really nice so far so I'll probably stick with it


Someone here in march mentioned that the manga was incomplete during production of the original anime and so the latter half of episodes were basically made up? It'd explain a lot. I saw the original anime in 2004 (jp audio+sub) and something felt wrong about the episodes taking place after everyone reached america. The slightly improved remake animation doesn't excite me, but if the later episodes are a totally different anime I'm going to watch this.

Watching Macross Delta movie now based on the September X Rune Sparkles mashup song.


I just watched Tsumiki no Ie, it is a short japanese anime film of about 12 min in length but quite good. It is not the typical anime style we all know and like The diary of tortov roddle it has a french looking style.
There is no dialogue at all so you only need to sit back and let the animation tell the story,

Worth watching.


Love the manga. Been waiting on the anime until I feel like drinking again

Is anyone else watching the Muv Luv: Alternative adaptation? So far some of the animation is a bit iffy and I am afraid that they are rushing it, but so far at least it is watchable. I just hope that they won't try to fit the entire story in twelve episodes.

What are you watching?
witch huner robin

What are you enjoying?
nothing, i mean i cant quite get the appeal of this series.

i was expecting self conclusive stories with a sour theme and a bittersweet ending pretty much like darker than black or hells succubus episodes.
but so far in the 5 episodes i ve been watching this show the same formula repeats over and over again. main characters look for the witch, find the witch, haunt it and thats it. theres litle to any insight about the witches life or what were the reasons for the witch to do what he did. they just kill it withouth any kind of moral contradiction or something to make the watcher think about that given situation. im not sure if i can expect something about this show or if its just a plain anime which only porpuse was to just fill tv space.


the ending is a massive dissapointment too, pretty much the only good thing is the soundtrack and the ambience which falls flat after the first episode.

Also no lethal violence is ever shown on screen which has me think it was intented to be aired on child tv channels for an edgy white scene tween audience.


Witch Hunter Robin is all style no substance. A show that looks good in stills but is a boring and mediocre watch.
Sad thing is it really did have potential to be something special.


thanks you very much.
i was holding it because i was afraid to miss something really cool in the upcoming episodes but i can drop it now with no regreats. i ll miss that catchy main theme (robins theme) and the dry tree branches on some background scenes though.
any early 2000s anime you reccomend aside from the classics?


Lol, I was considering watching it as well. Nice to know I'm not missing out on much.


Only thing I'm watching this season is 86 season 2. I like it.


mushoku tensei
saihate no paladin
the vampire dies in no time
kaiketsu zorori


the film short piece
i enjoy a lot of different things, from pmmm to yugioh, i'm a huge fan of yugioh vrains
i dropped the medaka box manga, it's too long and i just lost interest, to be honest.
not a season but the 4th PMMM film they announced. i hope that i'll be good


They just dropped a trailer for this and I am so freaking hype.
I remember watching the short that came out like a year or too ago and loving it, now that it's getting a full series I couldn't be more pleased. It looks like exactly how I hoped it would come out.


This season I'm watching Mushoku Tensei, Mieruko-chan, Faraway Paladin, The World's Finest Assassin…, and Platinum End. I ended up dropping Irina the Cosmonaut and Sakugan by the third week.


Wrote up this post because I realize I talk to no one about my anime interests, for about 10 years now.

About the same as you except
>Platinum End
Dropped both, but not sure about Platinum End. Stopped after ep 4.
Didn't like the initial love bullshit and the pacing felt off, wish the MC was jaded the entire time tbqh

Which of the three you're watching do you enjoy the most?

Faraway Paladin I had to skip around because it was overtly emotional. I understand it's a child, so it's necessary to preserve rational storytelling, just would've preferred not to watch as much crying. but it seems to be developing nicely.
The other two isekais are rather comfy.

Right now I'm doubling down on japanese study so I can watch without subtitles; the only reason I am studying.
The confidence I have in watching cartoons as I get older is that the medium itself draws the line between reality and fiction; fiction OUGHT to be drawn. The medium IS the message.
Reality TV makes me uncomfortable, actors too - the lines blend.

Watching more than the three you listed, but I won't go in-depth.
So far my favorite show this season is Kyuuketsuki Sugu Shinu.

This is a great show too. Great portrayal of trying to find the place you belong, or if you even want to belong, or when you find what you belong to has so much cruft and shit in it that you're not sure anymore. The lone reality sets in. And the way they handle the character development, the proper reactions to the rather stark situation they're in, sublime. The contrast of 86 with the republic - reality of war, which dissolves the delusions that people live with, is another depiction that bundles the show proper. Waiting for the republic to fall.

Any of you have manga recs?


Mieruko is decent but there isn't really a central plot. The characters are the ones that keep me watching it more than anything. I haven't read the manga, but as far as I can tell from the finale there may be more of a plot next season. As far as Platinum End goes, the MC is just starting to grow some balls but it took twelve episodes for a slight nudge. I'll probably stick it out though as the angels are fun and the side characters they've been introducing can be cool too.

Mushoku Tensei is by far the best and the one that always makes twenty minutes seem like five. I'm tempted to read the light novels but I enjoy the anime so much that I don't know if I could. At least we're getting an OVA in March. Faraway Paladin is going great and I'm really excited to see the battle with the new adventurers on board. Also, forgot to mention that I'm watching the Demon Slayer Entertainment District arc - not sure if that's also one you're on too but it seems to me more like filler until they work on the next main thing.

I've also been studying Japanese hard. Unfortunately I find myself having to watch a lot of 3d dramas because they seem to be the only ones with solid Japanese subtitles that I can find. One show I've been watching is called Hakozume which is actually getting an anime adaptation next season so I'm trying to finish it asap.


I just dumped the TV version of broken blade and decided to re-watch the six movies of broken blade. I remember those being great, though it's been 12 years. The TV version is too focused on relationshits, flashbacks to muh gakuen, and little succubi who are super soldiers which is one thing I cannot stomach in anime. What a disgusting treatment they gave to the TV version.
>Mushoku Tensei
failed normie re-incarnation
the MC has sex with his cousin in episode 22 and was like yayy I'm finally normal now, that totally ruined the feel of the show for me…


MT was uncomfy from the very start for me – the first few pages of the first volume of the LN has the MC (a person who, in his previous life, was quite like some of us here) repudiating his life as a virgin shut-in. It's funny how when writers want to portray a character as utterly repulsive and helpless they turn to this stereotype time and time again.


The Way of the Househusband animated manga; it's like a audio drama with still colored pictures…


I started Paranoia Agent last night, this show is original and weird in all the good ways. I'm only 6 of 13 episodes in but I feel I can recommend it.


Thanks bro I will check this out


the first season is great then it immediately falls off hard in season 2 imo.


I finished Devilman Crybaby recently and didn't like it at all. The animation, the characters, the plot. I had to force myself to finish it. The next one I start will probably be Dorohedoro. Really hoping for a new season of Goblin Slayer and Made in Abyss soon.


the show was all about god being a spiteful shit with the emotional maturity of a succubus


just finished it and you were right, I really jumped the gun recommending that


I think Jap hikkis have some sort of deep-seated shame around being hikkis. That's why they go to the extremes of not even coming out of their rooms and just waiting for their parents to leave food outside their door. They're too ashamed to face them. I don't think it's a healthy thing in Japan. There's definitely shame around it in the west too but I don't think it's quite as bad.


Japan's work culture is way more severe than the west's.


Which is ironic since the gap in productivity is profound despite Japan putting in so many work hours to the point of not having anything resembling work life balance.


I heard someone say that japanese have a shame based culture and whites have a guilt based culture, made sense


somehow never seen or even heard of arifureta. i did move at the time it was airing, i think i might have missed more lot from 2019

i dont really rely on anime discovery tools, i just sample whatever seems interesting as it airs and drop what bores me. so i guess i never added it to my watch list and it was completely skipped. but there is a whole ass second season too

im starting to worry my genius sample strategy is full of holes

I watched Angel's Egg last weekend and enjoyed the visuals and very sparse dialog. I don't really know what to make of the story or what it means, if anything. Seems like some religious symbolism was present with the guy's cross-shaped weapon looking thing and thirst for knowledge leading to tragedy. Regardless it was a great watch.


I'm getting the sense that Shingeki no Kyojin is going to end up being the best anime I've ever seen. Once it finishes I am going to immediately watch the entire series from start to finish.


I dropped it in the second season i think, thought it was boring as fuck


LINK CLICK Opening Theme - Dive Back in Time


This is certainly the OP of the season for me. The show itself is also very nice. Really comfy.


The OP is a parody of something I think


I pity those who haven't seen the ending to the manga.


I've gotten caught up with the English translation of "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level". Moreso than the isekai genre, I like the "chill slice-of-life" genre. And moreso than that, I like the whole recent wave of "anti-ambition" characters. E.g., Kobayashi could just rule the Earth using Tohru, but she doesn't. Likewise, I really like how the MC in this manga appreciates taking it easy. It's comfy. Nice.


I just got watching Death Note after having postponed it for a decade and it was great. Almost finished with Heartcatch Precure which has been alright. For current seasonals I'm watching Kaguya S3 and Spy x Family have been consistently enjoyable, Aharen has been serviceable and Shield Hero S2 has been kinda shit, contemplating dropping it.


Oh, coincidentally I'm finally watching Death Note right now too. I'll post a review of it when I'm done. It could be a while though since there are 37 episodes.

So far the story is pretty good. I'm 12 episodes in. Have it rated at 7/10 currently but that could change.

I watched the Utena series and greatly enjoyed it, thought of it as a deconstruction of the shoujo genre. But then watching the movie… I don't know what to think. Until the final sequence I saw it the same as the series, maybe taking the elements of form and content to even more extremes. But then it seemed like there was just a huge non sequitur and I have no idea what it was supposed to be. Is it a satire? For a moment I even thought it might be mocking the End of Evangelion. Maybe it tried too hard. I really don't know what to make of it.


There are some people who have escaped an abusive atmosphere by just straight up walking out the door, ghosting, and ditching their previous life. The difficulty of doing so juxtaposed to the incredible freedom you feel when doing it is–I think–perfectly encapsulated by the ending.

I really like the movie as well, but, at its core, it's just cars, swordfights, and lesbians.


File: 1652024575612.mp4 (18 MB, 640x480, 4:3, utena_7.mp4) ImgOps iqdb

If you substitute the "chick breaking out of its shell" metaphor for "I'm going to literally drive out of this world in/with my lover" does that help? The reason the movie comes across as satirical may be because it doesn't hold what it critiques at arms length like the series did

Even if it's not poking fun at End of Evangelion we should take the opportunity to say it does, because Eva exists at the opposite pole of retreat


>Eva exists at the opposite pole of retreat
What do you mean by this?


As a character Shinji is lost in a miasma of copes for why you should go through the apocalypse (dealing with other people) and become a salaryman, which is really Anno's confession that in the face of despair he gave up and retreated (and so should you)


The problem is that when I thought about the deconstruction of shoujo's characters, I saw Utena and Anthy as being abusive to each other, Utena being egotistical using Anthy to satisfy her emotional needs and Anthy being manipulative and using Utena (and her brother) to maintain control. At that point what was even keeping Utena in that world apart from Anthy herself? When Anthy got into the car I even thought of it as part of her manipulation, but what lost me was when the "you have to go outside" part started. To my understanding the need was for them to go away from each other.


I hate this stupid term so much


Ahh, I see what you mean now. Let's say it would be more internally consistent for them to go their separate ways given the critique of the genre, does that mean they should? At the end of the both the series and movie Anthy initially resists (in her coffin and at the car wash) so if you take that at face value, that is if it wasn't a feint to further encourage her prince to save her, maybe that's an admission she is caught between the power relations she has known before and the new world outside the academy

I'd have to rewatch the movie to precisely remember the visuals at the end, but I'll keep what you wrote in mind because it's an interesting take


File: 1652391990365.mp4 (7.72 MB, 862x472, 431:236, two nietzscheans.mp4) ImgOps iqdb

I rewatched the movie (actually I had to rewatch it multiple times to understand wtf was going on), it's a lot more sophisticated than I remember

>At that point what was even keeping Utena in that world apart from Anthy herself?

At first Utena says she didn't go to the academy for her prince Touga, but the way she blows up at Anthy later shows she did. Anthy also fulfills the promise Touga couldn't keep (having died) by showing Utena the stars, and while you could view that as unilateral manipulation by Anthy other scenes show mutual role-reversal between them

>When Anthy got into the car I even thought of it as part of her manipulation, but what lost me was when the "you have to go outside" part started. To my understanding the need was for them to go away from each other.

One of the last lines was they had both destroyed the prince together, so you could interpret that as Utena and Anthy freeing themselves of the aspects of the prince they had internalized to become who they truly are. Another key line at the end was Anthy saying she wouldn't run away anymore, so to the extent the power structure of the academy was an artifact of Anthy's manipulation she also viewed it as something to overcome. That's my more optimistic vision

Also Juri and Miki best succubus and best boy


I gave the movie some thought, and my mistake may have been that of interpreting the movie too much on the terms of the series. Despite elements of aesthetics and meta-narrative being more extreme in the movie, the characters themselves aren't. Utena is not as apathetic towards Anthy's predicament, Anthy is not as manipulative and is more justified in her behavior. In this case I can see the movie being permeated with mutual concessions, climaxing with a total role reversal in the last scene, with Utena surpassing her egotistical needs and presenting herself as an instrument to be used, and Anthy making the decision of freeing Utena, achieving her own freedom at the same time.


I dropped Rozen Maiden, the story didn't interest me, and watching a show about dollies is kind of gay desu


Rozen Maiden Overture actually makes for a better introduction. Due to shorter runtime, it's more focused and has less filler です.


I still felt weird watching a show about talking dolls with a somewhat dark plot and silly antics.



There's some tonal whiplash between the slice-of-life stories and the Pinocchi's Highlander game. Overall I like its aesthetics but the story moves forward slow.


It's one of my favorite shows and I think it has something for everyone in there. Time travel, dimension shifts, hungry little doll ghosts, a hikikomori, suicidal succubi, a mysterious bunny and pretty much everything in between. Plus you get dolls in nice dresses fighting with waves of rose petals, feathers, watering cans and scissors. A lot of sibling rivalry and little dolls drinking tea in tiny tea cups. It's filled with charming ideas.

The heart and soul of the show is the relationship between the dolls themselves and Jun, a hikikomori, so the main plot tends to move slowly because its gets on the back burner a lot. It's not really a problem though, the plot is not the strong point of any RM iteration anyway. But yeah, I assume you can only really enjoy it if you're into BJD. If own one or you spend time browsing Azone, Parabox and Dollfie Dream catalogues, then you'll definitely enjoy it. I think if you're the type of person who likes toys as an adult you'll find something to like in Rozen Maiden.

Also, watching cute dolls is not gay. Watching a mostly male cast of dense retards screaming at each other, now that's gay.


Manabi Straight has been wonderful, I've been meaning to finished the remaining episodes I have left but got distracted by rewatching Eureka Seven, which is also great.


The manga for Rozen Maiden is pretty decent.

So far I'm only watching season 2 of Uzaki-chan because I watched the first season and I haven't watched the first seasons of the shows getting further seasons. Other than that I don't know what to watch.


I'm watching Spy x Family and I'm planning to check out the new Urusei Yatsura, also all the shilling for Chainsawman has me mildly intrigued to give it a watch


>all the shilling for Chainsawman has me mildly intrigued to give it a watch
It's normalfag garbage. And I don't just mean that it's popular. The MC is a simp who is purely motivated by his sexual urges.

Gangore S2, Jitsuryokusha, Bocchi, Pop team S2, Ken Deshita, Charat. I'll have to watch the original Charat before I watch this one though.
I watched Akiba Meido Sensou 2 days ago, it caught my attention the moment it was announced, since I like both Akihabara and maids, and it didn't disappoint me in the slightest. Also watched Pop Team's first ep too, I'm glad they didn't drop the ball but there's not much else I can say about it.
I'm only watching Bocchi and Ken because I liked the manga when I read them ages ago, same for Jitsuryokusha, except I read the WN for it too. I liked all of their source works, but if their anime is shit then I'll drop them.
Meido Sensou. Maybe the anime whose source work I read. There's also Isekai Ojisan from last season, it was very good. Although due to reasons you're better off not knowing episode 8 and onwards will only be released after 25th of november.


I tried the first episode of the new Gundam series and it drips with American politics. The main character is a total sperg to the point of being incredibly annoying and the first episode ends with 2 succubi engaged to be married. While one of them is like "but I'm a chick" and is called bumpkin, conservative and told it's normal. I've been a Gundam fan for near 30 years now and I've never seen anything as close to as badly written and repulsive as this is. It's utter garbage and it's being defended by the usual sorts. I used to always discuss new Gundam series as they aired on /m/. The boards been in steep decline but now you get banned for discussing the obvious politics in a Gundam series. There's a clear censorship of people who think the series is garbage over there. It's not even just bad in it's own right, there's apparently loads of important back story hidden away on websites and in short novels. Because who the fuck doesn't want 4 year olds using funnels to murder ace pilots, then a 15 year time skip where she turns up to a school full of her family's killers with the exact same mobile suit they killed them over? Just put all the bit in between in some novel no one can find in a few years and we'll go right to autistic sperg stuttering in a high school setting instead!

All I wanted was a war drama.. A serious war drama about a teenager stuck between 2 shades of grey and doing their best just to survive and keep everyone around them alive. This bullshit puts the nail in the coffin for anime for me. Gundam evolution had brought me back to mecha after a long break and if this is what one of the biggest and best anime franchises has become, I'll pass from here on out.


chainsaw man seems cool


Can you elaborate a bit more on why you disliked it without making spoilers of the previous series? I began Gundam not so long ago (completely from the beginning, and I very pro-Zeon). I saw that they recently announced that thing and the contrast was very laughable. Would be cool to read an oldfag rant about this (and the censorship thing in other sites if you want).


How knew watching horse-succubi race was so enjoyable? Cygames got into my cold heart.


where do you guys read manga?


Now I only read in Japanese, so from dlraw.net or one of itazuraneko mirrors. But translated I used to get from madokami, it's still up.

進撃の巨人 (Attack On Titan) as it ends.

Anything that didn't catch my interest.

Let me get thru this season first…

Watch Thunderbolt or War in the Pocket.


I have watched many anime that are clearly thematically inspired by WWII and the collective trauma that Japanese society incurred from that. Many masterpieces came out of that. Attack on Titan I consider one of them, but it's funny, I guess enough time has passed for them to start valorizing and glamorizing genocide again, not wholeheartedly but in a tip your toe in it sort of way. Kind of like the germans are now dealing with far right neo-nazis as a political force again. Seems it's been long enough for the cycle to start to go into repeat mode.


It was never the war really, but the humiliating defeat.


>watching the dub version
>the last two episodes are sub only
way to ruin the experience, i guess that ends my watchthrough


>watching the dub version
>way to ruin the experience
Experience of what? Flat vocal performances and unnecessary script changes?


Undead Ulnluck this season


The anime netflix made set in the universe from the cyberpunk 2077 video game is actually really good. I enjoy how dark and dystopian everything is. The show is also really nicely animated with a vibrant color pallet.


Kusuriya no hitorigoto is excellent. It reminds me of kemono no souja Erin. The main concept is the same, a genius little succubus solves medical mysteries only this is a bit more comfy and laid back and involves humans rather than animals and is fiction rather than fantasy. Really a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stale market full of uninspired isekais and such.


Shangri la frontier is extremely disappointing. It started good but then the pace has slowed down to a crawl and nothing interesting is happening. Probably wouldn't have bothered me so much if I was just marathoning it but I'm watching it weekly as it airs and each episode now feels like a let down because nothing happens.


I'm watching G Gundam and thinking "what the fuck?". This is not Gundam, it's objectively bad and it doesn't even try to make sense. But it's so absurd, ridiculous and senseless that I'm starting to enjoy it in a "so bad it's good" kind of way.


Is G Gundam the martial arts tournament one?
I think I remember it from back when toonami was the main way of getting anime, and shitty dubs were just tolerated because alternative just weren't widely available.


Yes, that one. I think in my country the only Gundam ever licensed was Wing, but I've been watching all of them by release order.


>but I've been watching all of them by release order.
My goodness, that is quite the undertaking.

I just hope you don't get totally burnt out on it.


I probably won't, I don't binge, I watch one episode of Gundam a day, maybe two if there's any time left by the end of the day, if I'm watching anything else I watch one episode of each a day as well.


Kind of have a demented idea to watch all of Dragonball and then Z/Kai.


I've been doing that. I read the manga, but never watched the whole of the original Dragon Ball anime. To be honest I'm not finding it that great. The battle shounen part is better than the gag comedy, but still nothing that I'd call great. I watched all of Z when younger, but I intend on watching Kai, GT and Super as well.

I think I'm starting to realize people who don't like eng dubs are probably ESL and can't understand either English or Japanese.

Dear Joji.
If you ever come out of retirement, please make a "Shin Filthy Frank".
You know.
Before anything else lobotomizes my sanity any further :D.


>Frieren: Beyond Journey's End; it's comfy.
I was thinking about watching it once the normiefag hype dies down so I can go into it unbiased. Dont really want to associate with them.


What anime is this from?




Watched the first three episodes of "Gushing over Magical succubi" and uh….yeah. It's exactly what it looks like. A very ecchi anime about lesbians and the main character is a total femoid rapist. There isn't much depth to it. You basically watch for the softcore 'porn' but after three episodes it gets kinda dull.


It’s some pretty good porn though.

Anon I'm going to tell you something that will blow your mind and change how you indulge in media. Are you ready? Alright, here goes:

You don't have to associate with dumbfuck online communities for ANYTHING. Video games, manga, anime, TV, movies, books etc

Just because Frieren is popular right now with surface level anime enjoyers, posers, zoomers and normalturds does not mean you need to wait months and months for them to move on to the next popular show before you can start watching it yourself. If you let such idiotic individuals influence you to the point that it warps your opinion of a piece of media then that makes you a very silly person who is no better than the people you mock because they're just as influenced by others into wanting to board the hype train for a couple of months so that they can be "with it" themselves! Besides it's very easy to avoid them. You don't use forums, discord, social media or /a/ do you? Surely not.


>You don't have to associate with dumbfuck online communities for ANYTHING. Video games, manga, anime, TV, movies, books etc
Only if it's your secondary hobby and you watch maybe 1-3 anime per year. If you're a power watcher you have to filter out the trash or else you will have a very bad time.


You can still gather what the general sentiment is towards a show after 3 episodes without having to deep dive into the mental illness discourse that surrounds it. It's easy enough to gather that Frieren for instance is regarded as "worth watching" without engaging in any freakshow community (read: any western anime community in general)


Did this ever stop being boring? I dropped it after a while because it was just constant boring nothingness interspersed with heart tugging drama from time to time. They really hit that shit hard in the opening but then they back off and it just became this boring travel show. It also annoyed me that both frieren and her disciple act basically the same in the same weird, non-human way where they're always like detached and making dry observations and shit. It just gave a weird non-realistic tone and it was boring me to death so I dropped it.

I finished Chainsawman. It was meh. Got into it because of the intro. Thought I was in for something like if Quinton Tarentino made an anime. But 12 episodes is very short for them to go on crazy adventures. The whole season is largely a battle with three antagonists, each one taking about three episodes. The whole devil premise and lore seems stupid and overpowered, but I've come to understand manga and anime care more about the visuals than plot and logic.


yeah, it was meh. The definition of the type of show that appeals to normies imo. Full of dumb shit.


Lastest episode of Kingdom was truly a masterpiece. Kingdom in general is a masterpiece.

So far the first one is all right. Kind of makes me think of what a countercultural cubism artist from the late 90s would've made after reading all of Winsor Mccay's works (and maybe taking a drug or two).

I tried watching Ninja Slayer the year it came out, but let's just say those were convoluted times that only aimed to get worse despite my best efforts. It's still also pretty fun even with its inherent siliness (does a better job at adapting something American than Tales of Earthsea did, at least) now that I've started again.


Cardcaptor Sakura it’s a good show not my favorite or anything but definitely a good watch probably has the best soundtrack of any anime Ive seen up to this point
I Guess I’m excited for the next Gundam Season


今 ジョジョ お 見ます (Ep 1)
何だ よ それ?!


children are into that since they want an edgy definition of coolness and females like it because of the female empowerment message. Men are into it because they are normiefags and cucks who want to fit in probably.

Finished episode 15 of Ninja Slayer…
Knowing what the credits was referencing I sure af regret not having made it this far the year it came out now! =_=

I watched the 3 seasons of Classroom of the Elite in the span of ten days and it was really enjoyable. I got hooked to a lot of the characters.

If you're looking for a good a psychological school anime with an OP MC, I genuinely recommend you to watch this. Also Suzune Horikita is the best succubus!

Sounds unique, I'll consider it once I finish an anime.

Just started D Gray Man. Forgive me if I'm biased, but if it's an FMA clone then it's still pretty impressive and fun so far, especially since it manages to hold its own ground anyway.

Watched Serial Experiments Lain last year.
It was its own reward.

[spoiler] so for those still on a certain collab, I lied:
I will only watch the video once it is released.[/spoiler]
Everything else you are on your own.


Just finished Golgo 13 and now on Ashita no Joe 2

I have finished Ninja Slayer From Animation.

The first 23 episodes were unique, well animated, fun, and proved how American source materials are worth adapting into anime because they didn't feel like they were unexpectedly rushed nor dubbed (and sure as Buddha didn't lag most of the time anyway), which by default means they made sense.


Just the first 23 episodes out of a total of 26 .


Goblin Slayer and My Hero Academia

Finally getting around to watching Accel World..


Going back to my comfort zone of slower paced thoughtful fantasy anime.
So watched the ova and currently watching the second season of Mushishi.
Next will watch the second season of Bride of the Ancient Magus once I finish Mushishi.


>What are you watching?
None, as for now
>What are you enjoying?
As in an anime that I managed to watch straight without getting bored? The would be “School Rumble” I’m so jealous that the atmosphere it gave was to live school life to the fullest; No teachers to lecture class for the most part, interacting around without someone stopping you, nice outside trips, whatever
> What have you dropped?
One Piece and Cromartie High School

What anime would you recommend to a 30+ wiz who hasn't watched anime in almost 2 decades?


I wouldn't recommend any anime to someone who couldn't even write a single sentence outlining what kind of anime he enjoyed in the past and what general genre he's interested in now.




Odd Taxi



Does anyone know an anime that could make me feel regret for not enjoying highschool because I was a ghost who showed up rarely?


File: 1715711133836.jpg (125.61 KB, 1296x864, 3:2, The pillars.jpg) ImgOps iqdb


What about Demon Slayer? The hashira are a bunch of professional, handsome, muscular, shonen younglings with superpowers, probably rich and socially privileged who exploit the best of their own youths while dressing weirdly. Peaking hard, I'd say
