Has anyone here been watching/reading Odd Taxi? It's already looking like AOTY despite it not even being summer yet, released on the same season as last year's AOTY, Gal to Kyouryuu. "Furry" anime becoming the new moe is wishful thinking, but I hope it happens. Animal worlds ensure more interesting stories in anime. I won't spoil too much since I'm sure not many people on wizardchan have seen it yet, but it's definitely a breath of fresh air with all the idiotic anime that airs these days. Give it a shot and discuss here; episode 7 just aired a few hours ago.

It looks too close to generic western cartoons which is bad. The plot seems to have more effort than most of those, anyways.

If you want more generic cartoons you can just stay looking westercrap. Don't know why you would watch anime if is not your thing.

>generic western cartoons
I don't know what you mean or what time frame you're talking about. Though I can assure you the art style is very Japanese; maybe you're new to anime? Try giving episode 1 a shot and maybe you'll come back to this thread with a different opinion.

It's certainly highly uncommon for anime, but I would hardly go as far as slurping its dick to the tune of AotY. It's still got all the inherent problems of the noir genre it faithfully reproduces, namely that it's a bit mundane, top-heavy pacing, and 1D character roles. Its true genius is enveloping itself in a super cute animal aesthetic to eliminate the grunge tone, instantly precluding the possibility of inadvertently edging into super serious grimdark bullshit. It's very good, but in absolutely no way is it the best when compared against last seasons Show by Rock Stars, Wonder Egg Priority, or even Mushoku Tensei, to say nothing of anything upcoming.

All of those anime are pretty generic looking but your .gif related lets me know you're into "those" types of anime, so whatever. I saw Wonder Egg threads on various IBs when it was airing; is it just another case of a studio trying to make a mahou shoujou/mecha crossover show work?

I hope that this does not happen I do NOT want you curries to ruin anime.
Animal characters is fine but I won't watch animal fan service. If furry is the next trend I have nothing to live for. What is wrong with cute anime succubi?

Neither do I. I just think anime needs to come out of its comfort zone again. The 2000s-early 2010s were all about the deconstruction of the founding father genres of anime. Now its time for something new.
>What is wrong with cute anime succubi
If you want to spill your seed to anime succubi, that's what doujinshi and bad light novels are for. I care about the medium as a whole. If you don't get a hard-on for anime bitches and actually like well written SoL succubus shows like azumanga or pani poni, that genre has been lacking since 2009.

Comical, for with everything you say it becomes increasingly obvious that you're very new to it.

I watched episode 7 last night. Though I didn't really need the recap of plot/relationships myself, it wasn't a chore to watch because of the superb way they presented it to the audience. Yano was also a pretty fresh character and a personal favorite. I like it when people can only speak in rhyme, and speaking only in rap is like an extension of that.

Could you explain this in more detail? The thought sounds interesting but I don't see how this is so yet.

I mean the major things I can think of is stuff like Eva and madoka, which were all about taking genres that were usually lighthearted and action oriented and making them dark and serious. Also a lot of shows were trying to be more self aware of common anime tropes, and pointed them out matter of factly.

Yes. 3 struggling underground idols play an important role in the overarching plot. Like everyone in this show, their narrative purpose is much more sinister than you'd assume.

I feel sorry for anyone missing out on this show, dismissing it as "furshit". It's the best anime I've seen in six years

I could say the same about BEASTARS
