Also, going to get caught up on Ushio & Tora and Jojo.

It's pretty different but there are some similarities to obviously tell it was done by the same guy. It was pretty good imo.

Mob Psycho 100 and Diamond is Unbreakable are definitely the standouts of 2016. I'm looking forward to Ajin season 2 next week as well.

I never really saw it that way. mob's a pretty lighthearted kid outside of when his brother is in danger. if anything Claw is a bunch of angsty children. I think that's the point with them actually, especially after the Gasmask person's whole rant in the last episode. also Saitama gets depressed more easily than Mob from the looks of it. Mob has other stuff in his life, but Saitama only has superheroism as a hobby. I think he plays shmups with King sometimes but that's about it.

I wouldn't call Mob angsty at all. Compare him to Shinji. That's angst. Consumate internal suffering. Mob is just a gentle person with a crush on a chick who wants to get fitter.

That's why the show works. He's a funny contrast to the people around him who suffer far more, with far less reason to.

One Punch Man is a superhero story that makes Joe Ordinary a physically unbeatable hero. Makes fun of the usual superhero tropes of hero rankings/power level, colorful supervillians and an ignorant civilian population.

Could anyone in the Marvel or DC world beat Saitama? It would need to be one of those heroes like Mr Fantastic where his brain is his weapon, he would need to trick Saitama into stepping into some time lock and be frozen forever. The Avengers always give up fighting Thanos and have sealed him an amber before to keep him sealed away since they can't win in a real fight. Superman always tricks opponents into the Phantom Zone. But I bet Saitama could punch out of the Phantom Zone, like punch a hole through the dimensional wall.

It's satire in a way on how most shounen animes make their MC's too powerful. So he made a MC so OP that he doesn't find joy in fighting because no one gives him a challenge. It isn't so much circle jerking about how OP he is as it's commentary on how silly the genre is.

No nobody could beat him, that's the joke.

You have a way with words, that was eloquent. I thought the show would essentially be what your'e describing but it's actually a blast. Odds are if you hate that sort of thing, you might actually enjoy one punch man. It's sort of like the "Spring Breakers" of anime in that regard.

Perhaps I'm getting too old for this shit, and the youngsters always need to get their fix... Maybe if they missed DBZ, Naruto, Bleach and One Piece, then it might be more understandable why they now lap up this shit. I dunno.

Well that's just like your opinion...man. I remember all those anime and all but 1 one of those still has some charm to me.DBZ was boss, Naruto got held down in filler hell, Bleach got retarded when homeboy lost his powers, and I never could enjoy One Piece because of the art style. So I don't think missing those animes would destroy someones taste in anime. If anything it makes it harder to enjoy the shounen genre since mostly all cliches have been done a hundred times if you watched all of those.

That's precisely what I meant. They missed those staples - maybe they were too young at the time, or something - so all the cliches will be fresh and new to them NOW.

That's the only reason (that I can think of) why even shit tier anime gets celebrated occasionally. Every five years or so, there's a new batch of kids, watching whatever is currently airing, and thinking it's the best shit ever.

Your 1st shounen/moe/harem/healing/sporting anime is your favourite?

Out of those, harem is my favourite genre, I guess. And I'd be very surprised if suddenly some new show topped all the previous ones. There's just so far you can push the envelope.

Take Nisekoi, for example? It ranks pretty high on MAL, but it's almost wholly unoriginal! I mean, yeah, I can understand it: if it's (one of) your first harem(s), then sure, why not. It might seem appealing. But giving it a high score seems unjustified.

Not that I'm complaining - people can like what they like, more power to them. But it's difficult to weed out the ACTUALLY GOOD shows, when most of the viewers are young and uncultured. That is what irritates me. I think there could be a market for "more adult" anime, but for some reason, anime like that just doesn't exist.

Shonen can be good there's just so much stereotypical stuff out there and shonen adaptions are always the worst done ones and they've gotten significantly worse in that regard over the years. I guess Ushio and Tora looked pretty good? even that show got too heavy on still-use after a while.

I can't think of any harem anime that's actually watchable besides the first two series of Tenchi Muyo though. even then, that's only because of the scifi shit. I couldn't care less which one of those crazy people ends up with Tenchi. they're all assholes. especially the purple hair chick.

I've never even heard of this movie. That's really impressive, the only thing it hasn't beat is Frozen. Has anyone here seen it? Is it just some generic romance story or is there more to it?

Naruto as a comic series actually stays pretty damn good. And the fights reach HxH levels of intricacy at times. Especially the arc where Shikamaru is the lead. Well, until the final arc. The Ninja War/Kaguya thing was just a clusterfuck. it had some good moments but the pacing made it a lot less enjoyable than it should have been. The series definitely peaked with the Pain arc, but the resolution where they suddenly DBZ everyone back to life was utter bullshit. DBZ is the only series that can get away with that.

I think the best way to enjoy Shonen sometimes is to just embrace the cliches. I have a real soft spot for Yu Yu Hakusho, which started out with an intriguing premise and devolved into endless fighting tournaments so completely it was somehow endearing.

is anyone else not feeling the new jojo intro? it's not clicking with me like the first two for part 4 did.

yeah true. though yyh was probably considered a little more progressive back then than it would be now that half of shonens tend to take some sort of inspiration from it nowadays. even the naruto guy admitted to yyh's author that Sasuke is literally just Hiei at first.

it barely counts as a tournament arc, they skip over all the fights and most of the arc is the political and character aspects of it. though the anime at least adds in ONE fight that was only implied in the manga with yusuke and the horn dude at the end. My favorite part of the arc was actually just yusuke winning the demons over in meetings. it felt like a precursor to the election arc of hxh.

Halfway through the new DBS and I'm glad they finally addressed the whole parallel universe in the room. Time travel is done so shittily.

And they fucked up the logic again in the last minute unless Zamasu traveled to another alternate universe and killed a son goku that didn't die of heart disease, which is probably the only explanation of how there are two Zamasus.

Well, I guess you can then boast with lots of completed shows on MAL or something, heh... For me, watching anime (or any TV show for that matter) tends to be pretty tedious, because they are so long... Like, if an episode takes about 23 minutes, and there's 13 of them in a season, that's already close to five hours in total. In contrast, I usually feel that finishing a couple of movies, or just playing videogames, is more entertaining for the same amount of time wasted.

Anything that isn't violent and edgy must be garbage, dull or the same old shit? You're a fucking retard. Anime doesn't exist to satisfy your narrow-minded, stereotypically Western fixations on your childhood anime. It's not anime's fault that your brain is full of fuck.

Where?? (Honest question.)

I think all the common places suck. Like le Redddit and the /a/. I also hate forums and random comment sections. The underlying problem is clear: anime is made by otakus, and mostly watched by kids and weebs, so there's not much chance of serious discussion happening, anywhere.

So like cutesy anime girl shit? K-On, Azumanga Daioh, Love Live! School Idol Project, Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, Lucky Star, Seitokai Yakuindom. Those are just a few off the top of my head, there is a huge fandom around anime like this. So it shouldn't be hard to find top 10 list of anime like this if you want nothing but the best. lol

speaking of lighthearted stuff, I love how some anime do this thing where the intro is really happy and upbeat but then the actual series is dark as shit


listen to that shit. it's sickenly chipper 90s alt rock bullshit. I love it.

as for actually lighthearted stuff, Cromartie Highschool and Silver Spoon are good. The first season of hunter x hunter is fairly lighthearted as well. it more or less stays that way outside of a few bits, until chimera ant arc where it the lightheartedness just sort of disappears.

The movie is over an hour and a half long maybe longer. like 15 minutes is spent on actual characters just doing things. the rest is tank battles. Some of its badass tank battles other is just tank shananagans and foolery. The series helps set it up but the movie itself as a good amount of exposition as well. Someone could jump right into the movie but watching the series first would make it that much better.

I'd say the cgi was the main goal and of course there had to be a story for it.

Too bad they didn't use it to recreate a small chapter of FFIV's story or something to be more interesting, but I applaud the attempt to do something different all the same. I didn't see how SW fit into the final fantasy name at all.

From what I've been reading a lot of the people hating it are doing so because it doesn't perfectly match their "fan fiction" ideas on how it should progress and who should be in it fighting. there are a bunch of people pissed at how much of a side character Gohan has been madeinto.

>Community is horrible

A thousand times yes. They're awful.

The show can explain something clearly but the fans still bitch.

Spoilers Ahead. [spoi%] I know I got that spoiler tag wrong, but anyway:

People are bitching hardcore about Future Trunk and all of his recent power ups, they're bitching about the supposed change to the rules about the potara fusion. They're bitching because of the animation. People are bitching because they never go SSJ3 anymore, they're bitching because they can't wrap they're head around how this connects to GT and it's SSJ4. All in all they are all bitches who don't know how to consume media anymore and get their opinions from mush mouthed youtubers who make shitty judgments based on rushed fansubs. I'm ranting a bit but that's just because i've delved too deeply into the youtube DBZ underbelly and what I saw there pissed me off.

Dragon Ball Super initially pissed me off when it rehashed the movies but everything else it's offered has been pure old fashioned Dragon Ball goodness from start to finish in my opinion.

There was never a change. Hell, there wasn't even a good enough explanation as to why the potara fusion was canceled when Vegito fought Buu. So, that wasn't really a bad retcon, if you want to call it that.

But yeah, I wasn't one of the ones who got all triggered by the latest episode. It's post-Dragon Ball. What the fuck were people expecting? What do these niggas want?

Oh and if anyone's curious as to which episodes to skip if they've already seen the movies it's episodes 3 - 14 and 20 - 27. 22 is an optional watch.

okay caught up on the responses, I guess I'll watch madoka then. It doesn't look that long anyways. are the movies just recap or are they important?

thanks. so there's nothing super important added to the movie adaption arcs?

complaining about the animation is totally legitimate. the old series at least always looked good in still images, and it had a similarly low budget even thought it was popular. dbs can't even claim that.

wait, that's canon? lol.

Not really as far as I can tell. The adaptation arcs just have slight differences like locations and general order or wording of things. You get a bit more time with some characters or some characters fight for a bit longer but all in all it's nothing substantial. The biggest difference is in episode 22 and maybe episode 4 but I can't really remember the movies as well now.

27 is the the final fight of the Resurrection of F arc so it might be worth it just as a refresher.

DBS's animation is inconsistent and sometimes wonky in still frames but honestly it's not as bad as people make it out to be. You can definitely tell when they blow their budget on a single fight scene and the rest of the episode is less polished though. I'm not defending the animation outright, i'm just saying it doesn't deserve all the outrage. It'll probably be fixed by the time it hits blu ray anyway.

Unfortunately, nothing in Super has retconned anything in GT yet. I have a sneaking suspicion they're gonna taper the ending of Super into the beginning of GT somehow without really acknowledging it. Probably going to end up at the martial arts tournament at the very end of DBZ with Uub.

The episodes corrected some faulty information.

Somewhere in the BoF movie Beerus says "You're pretty strong, I used 70% of my power.".

Toriyama really didn't like that because that would imply that Goku has a chance of beating Beerus one day, and the entire point of Beerus is that Goku finally has a foe he might beat aaaaaaaaaaaaaall the way at the end of Super, and perhaps even never.
So in Super, Beerus says "Hey you're pretty strong. I had to use a tiny bit of my power."

And there are more of those little things in there.

Yeah the stakes just keep on spiralling upwards. Almost like a drill piercing the heavens or something.
I heard that it's meant to be a cross-section of mecha anime through the years, with each ~8 episodes representing a different decade. I'm inclined to believe that. It explains these clear-cut tonal shifts nicely. Guess I'm just not a big fan of 70s style.

I haven't heard the 8 episode bit before. To me the first half of the series was about the oldschool Super Robot shows and the second half was a nod to the more prevalent "normal" robot shows. I will have to rewatch to catch style jumps between the 8 episodes though.

Gurren Lagann has a weird pacing to it. the first half of the show steadily builds. then the second half is a little slow at first but then then takes a sharp turn upward and gets intense as hell for the last episodes.

it isn't technically a gundam series, but Ideon was made by the same guy who created gundam and directed a lot of the later series too. Ideon starts out very similar to the original Gundam but eventually gets very very different (though clearly by the same guy). you'll see where a lot of later giant robot series got inspiration from it. including evangelion of all things. end of evangelion was very much inspired by the movie ending of Ideon, "Be Invoked". it's the same situation too where the ending of the tv series is replaced by the movie.

The tone emphatically changes half way through those halves too IIRC (i.e. Nia's introduction and LET'S GO TO SPACE). The former was especially noticeable to me at any rate, I went from dragging my feet for months on end to binging everything that was left in one afternoon. Also keep in mind that 8 is only a loose guideline and might vary; I simply remember episode 8 was where shit went down; maybe the tone shift had already happened.
The theory also entailed that the home stretch represent Gainax catching up to the present and writing the book on the decade yet to come, which is why it got so superhyperbonkerscrazy. KLK felt like a bit of a let down in comparison tbh.

I love the Matrix, but in hindsight it pains me how much it steals form Ghost in the Shell... Back in the summer of 1999, I had not seen GITS yet, so I naturally thought that the Matrix was (perhaps) more original and cooler than it "really" was. And it also cheaped my first viewing of GITS, some years later, when I finally saw "the source" (if you'll pardon the pun).

Still, top notch stuff, both movies. I tend to rewatch them every few years.

Honestly I feel the Matrix put a really good spin on it, basically applying the physics of cyborgs to humans which was groundbreaking. GitS on the other hand was actually more about computers evolving sentience than anything else, it was just so good at putting you in the surreal mind of a cyborg that it was an easy transition from that to the Matrix.

DB Super is good if you remember Dragon Ball, and don't mind a big dose of comedy and absurdity along with your punching-man-anime.

tl;dr for my post:

Super's comedy is good and fits in fine with the rest of the franchise

Kai and Super are similar in a lot of ways.

Kai is worth the watch but if you really love it then just get a rip of the newest Funimation blu ray release of Z.

GT is a nightmare in many new and exciting ways.

Alotta people are pissy about Vegeta having comedic moments in Super, i see comments along the lines of "they made Vegeta a bitch". Honestly though, the comedic bits with him are great and fit in with the rest of the franchise perfectly. Hell, Piccolo was playing straight man to Gotenks by the end of Z and Tien had a love interest and became almost a secondary Yamcha only a season after he was the main antagonist in DB. Besides there is plenty of grimdark during this most recent saga and Vegeta gets plenty of classic kickass moments after the movie arcs.

Super's pacing is really similar to Kai's. Fights never last longer than a couple episodes and there isn't a whole lot of reiteration in the dialogue as was with Dragonball Z and GT. You miss out on some of the more nuanced explanations of certain things when you watch Kai but most of it was off the cuff contradictory filler dialogue anyway. Funimation likes to get fast and loose with it's translation the newer the dub you get so keep that in mind. By the time they recorded Kai that team had probably recorded some of these scenes about 100 times in various different ways because of all the videos games and whatnot so it seems like they might be getting a bit too overly comfortable with the rolls and translation. I have to remind myself sometimes that I'm not watching something like TFS after watching long runs of subbed DBZ and then coming back to the Funi Kai dubs.

Let me also say that GT is fucking abominable. I could write a fucking thesis on that show. The first couple seasons alone made me regret learning of it's existence. Each episode was packed with seven different flavors of shit at various alternating levels. Rarely you'd get a brief glimpse and have the thought "Ok, I could sit through more of this" only to have the next scene come in and validate all the preconceived hatred.

Current "Evangelion" Studio Khara Sues Original Studio Gainax
Reports assert that Gainax has not had a significant hit since "Evangelion" and studio has considerable debt

Gainax has not had a significant hit since Evangelion and has been on the downturn since the late '90s, explaining that in the latest fiscal period, ending July 2016, Gainax made 240 million yen - a tenth of their revenue from five years ago, and that they have debts in excess of a billion yen.

nothing. everyone relevant to evangelion jumped ship from gainax to khara. anno owns khara and everything related to evangelion. if anything this means more money to make eva final look nicer. they're suing for royalties gainax has been skimping on. not surprising, eva merch is probably the only money gainax's skeleton has left. luckily it's no great loss, all the talent went to ig, trigger, or khara a long time ago, and those studios are still running strong.

>gurren lagann only got compilation movies instead of sequel movies
Compilation movies are nothing new and are done to cash in on the success a series has. And why in the hell would anyone want a sequel to that? The story has come to an end so why would that be necessary? Redundant sequels are the new thing in the anime industry and I'm already sick of it. But what am I even arguing about half of the people in this thread think Dragonball is still watchable.

Overall a very bad post full of misinformation.

>Highschool Of The Dead Season 2

"Highschool of The Dead" Season 1 aired back in 2010 and it definitely earned a massive fan base. The zombie apocalypse anime series has fans craving for a second season. MadHouse Studios has yet to cancel or renew the anime series.
With that being said, there is still a chance that "Highschool of The Dead" will still get a second season and some reports say it is likely to air in 2017. If we look back at the final episode of HOTD Season 1, it implies that there will be a continuation. Episode 13 "Wandering Dead" ended with a note saying "The battle is not over yet."
Even with the massive fan base and the high demand for a second season, the producers have a reason to delay its production. According to Yibada, the main reason that the hit zombie anime series has yet to air a second season is tied to the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

In addition, the Japanese authorities are a superstitious bunch and decided to stray away from any story line related to an apocalypse. Hence the "Highschool of The Dead" Season 2 was delayed.
Another reason for the delay is the show's feedback. It is a given that HOTD had great feedback in some western countries. Some western companies even took the license of the anime series in order for it to air there.
To name a few, Sentai Filmworks, Anime Network VOD and Microsoft's Zune Marketplace. While for Australia and New Zealand, the series was taken in by Madman Entertainment. The said company is also interested in purchasing the rights for the show's second season. According to FabNewz It is evident that "Highschool of The Dead" faired well in western countries, however, the same cannot be said for its home country, Japan.
Japan, along with other eastern countries find that "Highschool of The Dead" features content that is way too explicit. All these reasons caused the delay of a much-awaited second season of "Highschool of The Dead."
The series could be back by 2017, along with other popular titles like Tokyo Ghoul. In a recent report in Jobs & Hire, it was mentioned that MadHouse will be taking over the said series. With HOTD and Tokyo Ghoul under the same studio, fans are hopeful both will be released by 2017.

Huh, I always thought the reason a second season wasn't made was because there wasn't that much left to adapt into an anime. Reason there isn't much left was because the author, orginally drew hentai, went back to hentai as HSoTD did poorly in japan.

Watch Prison School, that's another good parody of anime tropes.

Mob Psycho 100 aint bad, but its also no OPM. It's funny enough with the same deadpan humor. The main characters are essentially Genos and Saitama with their roles reversed.

Gonna be open minded here. Without knowing anything about it Prison School, it doesn't look like a Parody of anything it just seems to be that type of anime/ manga. Haven't seen Prison school but I saw Kill La Kill and people were saying a similar thing about it, that it was self aware and a parody. I never got that vibe at all, it was just basically a magical girl anime on meth but that doesn't count as a pardoy in my books.

...Then I watched OPM. I wanted nothing to do with this show, it looked like a one note joke carried throughout an entire series and to be fair that's not to far from the truth but OPM certainly lived up to the hype for me. I eventually gave it a chance and liked it a lot. I understand how this is a parody, unlike Kill La Kill. There are some fight scenes that are a sort of homage to power fantasy anime but at the end of the day I'd say it's more of a comedy with world building than anything else.

Checked out Masamune-Kun Revenge, looks like it could be a funny slice of life anime about a dude who was a fat kid getting some sweet revenge on a chick that rejected him by losing weight and becoming popular.

Also checked out Youjo Senki. Which at first looks like some weird WW1 mixed with fantasy setting. However there seems to be more going on where the MC (A little girl who is a commander) might be more than she seems. Plus she seems like a total badass. So gonna keep tabs on it.

Of course also waiting for the crown jewel of the season which is season 2 of KonoSuba which comes out on the 12th. Gonna be lit af. lol

Is it me, or was there really not one outstanding anime last season? And I don't really seem to find one this season either. I'm not trying to hate, but usually I can spot the good ones like one punch man, mob psycho, space dandy, kill la kill (kind of a guilty pleasure, but still) just from the ravings in this thread. But now I get the impression everything is kind of mediocre, or little girls or 'slice of life' which I'm just not really into.

I'm just kind of craving an anime, so any recommendations are welcome. Others I've really liked where flkl, musishi, cowboy bebop, samorai shamploo, kemonozume, gurren lagan, trigun, black lagoon... Most of those are the usual popular ones, but I'd also welcome anything more obscure.

I've loved a good number of anime ranging in a number of styles and levels of stupidity (Mushishi, Cowboy Bebop, Modoka, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Baccano, Dragonball, Mobile Suit Gundam, Case Closed and others) and I absolutely cannot see the appeal of JoJo. It gives me Naruto vibes, but most people brutally shit on that show, yet Jojo is touted as some masterpiece.

I simply don't get it. It's got awesome colors, but the action is confused and the characters are stupid and uninteresting imo. I guess people like it for its humor? Somebody explain please. I am no stranger to the absurd, but I just haven't seen anything more clever than Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo "randomness"

The first 3 arcs of JoJo are incredibly rough. What people go nuts over more or less starts in Part 3, and even then there are only a handful of great Stand battles early on.

The original manga is vastly superior to the show. I don't like David Production's direction very much, they made the show more like a motion comic than an animated adaptation of a comic. The best thing about the show is the music, which dropped in quality after Part 2. You might as well just read the source material at your own pace, which I guarantee is going to be better than the show's retarded pacing.

You also might want to watch the 1990's Stardust Crusaders OVA, which is how people used to get introduced to JJBA. It focuses on the best battles in Part 3 and is actually animated, unlike the new show. If you like it, you'll like the comic.


(Episodes 1-7 were made a decade later and are shit, so go from 8 to 13.)

No one said that, ever. If anything, they're thankful otakus exist because otherwise they wouldn't have a job. It's not that people in the industry have no ambition anymore. The reason almost all new shows are moe/waifu trash or fujo-pandering trash is that nothing else really excels in bd/dvd sales or merch sales.

It's funny to me that you compare a bubble-era OVA to a 2017 TV series. Now onder the OVA looks better. Anime studios operate on a paper-thin budget these days and animators earn next to nothing. You should be more thankful you have something to smoke your weedgrass to.

Ended up watching the whole thing in 2 days (the 1st season is only like 10 episodes though and there were only 2 episodes released from the 2nd at the time) so I don't feel too bad about binge watching it. I mean actually liked it. It was entertaining. Nothing to write home about, but I haven't watched a comedy with a bunch of cute girls in it in a while so maybe that's why I blew through it, as a change of pace.

Usually I'm into more mature, psychological sort of anime. But hey...we can all enjoy something mindless and entertaining sometimes too right?

They don't care much for baka gaijins like you and me, Jane. Kinda sad but it is what it is. The fraction of their earnings that comes in through western viewers is marginal.

An anime like this one would air on late night tv = lower viewership = lower revenue. I mean there is a chance it might happen. One could compare this to Terra Formars which is comparable in target audience but I'm not gonna do that now.

oh man that live action attack on titan movie is a riot. both of em are. if you're like me and like hilariously terrible movies and adaptions, you'll get a kick out of shitting on this movie with friends. it's the same writer/director who ruined Nadia Secret of Blue Water midway through so you KNOW it's gonna be some shit. I like how after all this time, he's still dedicated to ruining the female lead of whatever series he writes for. mikasa is basically levi's submissive bangmaid. I kept imagining frank and charlie's mom the whole time. also in this version the titans were created by the american government. it's incredible.

only stuff that does super well as a manga can get away with being bloody and also getting an anime. seniority can help a lot too. HxH was actually MORE bloody in the show, specifically during the chimera ant arc when shonen jump started censoring togashi's gore themselves. of course on the other end you get stuff like jojo where they black out every little scrape and bruise for broadcast.

I thought it was good fun, but it was hard to overlook how blatantly it copy/pasted elements of Death Note. I assume you have seen that already, but if not, watch it, as it's the inspiration of Future Diary.

For something else like Future Diary, some of the fights in Ajin rely on overly complicated rules like the Future Diary battles.

I honestly expected MORE rules to using ajin, and different ones for each . they're all pretty identical though. I guess it would make it too much like jojo if they did that. it's already just death note jojo. come to think of it, watching part 4 was really reminiscent of Death Note, the art style for the manga too. I have to wonder death note was inspired by the 4-5-6 era of jojo. there's even a serial killer named kira in both.

I like sad shit but Elfen Lied is just bad. I don't usually tell people what to watch but stay away from that.

Given the simplistic plot of most these shorts, I think they only work well if they aren't longer than 5 min.

There are some good shorts. I like Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou.

Thanks for the recommendations! Madoka Magica and Paranoia Agent were already on my radar, Monster is the one with Twin Peaks references right? I remember seeing that one on here. I'll definitely check out all those except Elfin Leid, which I've already seen and didn't care for much. Samurai Flamenco looks hilarious.

I actually never saw Death Note despite being in high school and surrounded by other anime nerds when it came out/blew up. In a way I feel like I've already seen it cause I know pretty much the entire story and ending already. Ajin looks dope though, and it sounds like I need to watch Jojo too.

It's more like WWI, not WWII.

From the description of the burning lungs and depriving of oxygen after the magic shelling, it's meant as an analogue to chemical warfare. The flashback show the main character started military mage service as artillery observer analogous to the roles of observers on hotair balloon.

From the design of infantry helmet, to the comment of how the world has yet to experience a world war. Then there's that military thinkers of the time has yet to comprehend the full implication of the industrial revolution on warfare.

With that said, I would not be surprised if the Saga of Tanya will be long enough to cover multiple wars and the nature of changing warfare well into an alternate WWII. We might end up seeing mages as strategic bombers and interceptors given time.

(On a side note, after magical girl shows like Mai-Otome, where entire nation had been turned to wasteland with people dying from residual magic (radiation poisoning) after previous war, this show Saga of Tanya could easily fit mages into an alternate hot version of the Cold War if it want to and if it run long enough.)

(On another side note, why didn't the show go with something like Nanoha franchise where some magical girls has memories of past kings from the same universe? Why did Saga of Tanya go with reincarnation from different universe? Just how many universes are there within Saga of Tanya?)

Watching Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. Good stuff. This is the 'slice-of-life' stuff I can stomach, an interesting setting and premise, not just fuckwit highschoolers and random shenanigans. I typically just watch dumb action animus so it's nice every now and then to find an anime like this for a change of pace. I keep thinking of Kids on the Slope while I write this. Rakugo hits the same spot Kids did.

>I keep thinking of Kids on the Slope

i need my feels to be packaged in a careful production. There's not a lot of crazy animation or action (or maybe even none at all) but when i was looking for a screenshot, I realised that each still frame still had a lot going for it, it's never just cut and paste stationary characters to save on animation frames and budget. The characters and events are quite static but the production overall still feels kind of dynamic. It's a good show to just chill and unwind with. It's a very understated anime.

I watched that and the later episodes are quite tragic, so don't mistake it for easy-to-digest SoL. It's a drama like it's rarely seen in anime, easily in the top 3 of 2016. The sequel is currently airing but it's not clear where it will go at this point, it is a bit more light-hearted, though.

I guess i lump SoL and drama together, because my tastes typically skew towards comedy and action, so anything that clearly is neither comedy nor action Just becomes one big amorphous blob to me.

It is a drama, and so far it's quite good. Just starting episode 9 now. There are videos on youtube that do a much better job of selling it than I could. This type of show is not my typical watch so I don;t even know where to begin in trying to sell it.

The ride is an unpredictable one I can't wait to see where it ends. That doesnt't happen too often to me with anime, It's funny to me that it became so poular with a broad audience because it is an adaptation of a josei manga what means it is geared towards adult women, but that may be the reason it feels so fresh. But the homoeroticism is kept to a minimum so it's ok, Shippers gonna ship

Oh, please. Of the ten most popular shows on MAL, five entries are Gintama. Crunchyroll is probably the same, weebs are all over that shit. It's like family guy that is watched by kids who want to about pop-cultural things that where way before their time and other things.

it just isnt talked about on 420 /mtv/ very often..truth be told this is one of two places i even engage in tv/movie talk so you are probably right about it not being underrated.

i dunno about the family guy comparison though. japanese humor especially in the vein of gintama tends to mix pop culture, japanese history, word puns, classic and current manga/anime references all together.

I have absolutely no problem with self-contained stories in an anime - I'm a huge fan of Lupin the Third - and where this show was going with it, but it lacked likable characters to get me through 26 episodes. Would have been better if there had been another human crew member to interact and converse with and to build character through that and not the episode's story because they failed doing that. Didn't care all that much for the alien and the robot who are just there so the mc's solitude doesn't feel too weird. There are shows that do all the things better SD tries to do, namely "space-comedy" and "light-hearted space-action".

the lower floor of anime quality has dropped to unprecedented depths. but the ceiling has raised a bit, so when effort does go in, there's stuff that looks much better than it did decades ago. Of course for every Tekkonkinkreet we get a million frames of animation like the bottom half of your picture. Plus it's toei that's kinda what they've become, and they were only just okay in the first place. pierott is even worse. also the top pic is from a movie, the old series didn't look that nice in the regular tv episodes.

Except Tanya didn't really start OP. She was outplayed in like the second episode where she ended up almost killing herself to get out of the situation she was in. The only reason she is OP now is because "Being X" is trying to prove a point to her. So of course most of her struggles are gonna be in contained situations with "Being X" allowing her to overcome so that she can pronounce her belief in his glory. Thus why "Being X" made it that she must pray to him just to use her powers. So I think it's a bit different than your other examples like Overlord and Drifters, where the Protags didn't have much of an arc to being OP and just started OP from the beginning.

Although personally I do have a hard on for OP protags, so maybe I'm just bias

It will keep coming in small batches. A few eccentric artists who really, really like that particular aesthetic, like myself. I've started studying animation, and it's very labor intensive. So, in other words, slow going. There will be animators, probably a handfull of 5 to 15 prominent ones, who will do "odd" things like hand drawn frames "for the art" of it. Don't worry.

>Overpowered protags
What is overpowered? It's not like there's no countermeasure, or like having right type of power to deal with every situations.

  • In Code Geass, when Nunnally is helping one brother nuke another brother, only one side has the Fleiya superweapon in that battle. This seems overpowered. Yet the other side deploys countermeasures by charging with special device to trigger criticality on the warhead before reaching target. The premature detonation both reduce effectiveness in damaging the intended targeted forces and cause immense danger to the attacker forces.

  • In Banner of the Star, when Lafiel is sent to occupied stars to enforce surrender and transfer of power of local planets to the Empire. Her little squadron of warships has enough firepower to strip a planet of breathable atmosphere which she has threatened to use. This seems overpowered. Yet there's a planet in one of the occupied stars where the local government is breaking down. Civil war is breaking out on the planet surface. There's a food crisis, since the planet require food imports but is now in the occupied zone. Restoring order requires ground forces she simply don't have. Evacuating the refugees to the prisoner of war camps requires time she don't have.

  • In Overlord, each of Ainz subordinate has way more power than everything around them. Yet his subordinate who's more powerful them him still get mind-controlled to turn on him.

Maybe there's a cycle? Sometimes a bunch of works with high powerlevels get the combinations of settings/tone/character just right, and sometimes powerlevels works get it right.

I don't think powerlevels affect storytelling. Some things can go wrong no matter how high the powerlevel, just as some things can go perfectly according to plan even with low powerlevels.

Overlord was a bad example man. He is still insanely OP. The only reason the MC'd subordinate was even a moderate threat was because it was his hard counter and he didn't want to hard frag something made by his friend. IE he was holding back and she was Scissors to his Paper. And he still trashed her easy.

The only really japanese power fantasy in recent times that comes to mind is Gate and its sequel. Drifters is just "Muh ancient samurai motherfucker" and one giant "what if x fought y" scenario so it gets a pass from me. The bad thing about Youjo Senki though is that it panders to fans of ww2 and with that has a giant fanbase outside of japan that consist of DEUS VULT idiots that actually take it for more than it is. I read a post of someone describing it as good because "people die" and "main character acts reasonable".

Don't give them any ideas.

I'd argue Drifters qualifies. It's not just "muh ancient samurai", its "muh Japanese warriors from all eras land in fantasy world and immediately start taking over because wizards ain't shit to glorious nippon tactics & gunpowder". Taya is kind of the same thing, in that Taya succeeds partially due to Japanese Salaryman ruthlessness and cunning.

I might watch that.

If they're actually religious then this anime is blasphemous. The main character refers to god as "being X" and questions if they are even god and considers him just a kid with a magnifying glass. Thus why "Being X" is constantly fucking with Tanya. lol

>I read a post of someone describing it as good because "people die" and "main character acts reasonable".

Ok? So you read a post where someones opinion of what they liked was simple. The anime is good because of the story and how Tanya must climb her way up in a new life after Being X decided to prove a point to her. The killing isn't even that gruesome as compared to other anime, hell even in the past season Drifters was way more gorey.

The idea is pretty unique though, I think most people call her "loli hitler" more as a joke than anything else. She has yet to do anything really evil, most of what she does is more backhanded stuff you'd expect from Officers during that time. Think people are just trying to hard to take the enjoyment out of this one because they don't want it to outshine their moe dragon fetish anime. lol

LOL. Maybe we can have a series going for the "Warhammer 40k meets Game of Thrones but with magical girls" summary soon?

priestess: Yet even in her undead lich state, the Galactic Empress continues her eternal vigilance.

princess: I did warn you not to trust me, you know. Princesses have no friends, only subjects and rivals.

warmaiden: Once, the Warmaidens fought side by side as sisters, protecting the galaxy. Now, our order is divided, locked in a brutal civil war.

crusader: Stareaters are coming.

princess: Chaos is a ladder. Many fail to climb it and the fall breaks them. And some are given a chance but refuse to climb. The climb is all there is.

Watching Log Horizon, almost done with the second season. pretty good. I hope there is a 3rd season coming out. The whole 'trapped in an mmo/video game world' thing is pretty played out by this point but this series is probably the best iteration of that concept, at least out of the ones I've watched.

However STOP FUCKING TALKING AND FIGHT THE DAMN WYVERNS. This whole episode, just shut the fuck up and do what you said you are going to GOD DAMN I'm over exaggerating a bit but still. They're obviously not gonna fight until the next episode It reminds me of an earlier episode that was basically one long speech for a Raid party that kept dying horribly, but that was still more bearable than whatever the fuck they are doing in this episode.

The CGI was incredible and the fights were thrilling, but they had to cut a lot for time and content, including the part where the osaka team shoots heroin and smokes weed. they didn't even LOOK high. other than that it was a fun mindless romp.

It's not that he's done anything evil... it's just that he instigitated the events. Yeah, those universes were gonna be destroyed, but when? Could have been tomorrow, could have been millions of years away. Goku inadvertantly put a solid deadline on the destruction. That's the angle I'm looking at it from and it makes it more entertaining for me.

its more the fact that they know now because of goku.

it seems they would have rather not known at all since there would have been no way of stopping it.
and now they have to fight for their whole universe to survive at the cost of terminating another universe

A lot of the best animators who directed the fights that brought people into it either only work on movies, work on other projects, or just don't work on animation directly very often in general. for a time they would at least animate the canon parts well, kinda like how the simpsons usually puts out a good halloween episode, but at some point during the pain arc they stopped even doing that. even might guy opening the eighth gate paled in comparison to rock lee vs gaara.

however the final naruto vs sasuke fight was incredible. they knew they HAD to try with that because everyone would be watching. if anyone here ever liked naruto and then started to hate it, or lost interest in it, definitely watch that two parter. you can safely ignore everything after it though. it's episodes 476 and 477 if you're curious. the episode directly following goes STRAIGHT back to being fillery and animated like garbage and you're better off just switching to the manga if you wanna see the aftermath, it's only one page there where as they stretch it through a full episode until you get to see the adaption of that page.

Death Note is a contender for the most verbose manga/anime ever produced.
I never watched the anime because I read the manga, and lemme tell you, its worth reading, if only because the anime cuts out some of the walls of text and it leads to plot holes....not necessarily any plot holes you could suss out yourself (a map of the events in the show would look similar to that Star Wars plot map) because its so complicated, but if you like the anime, I'd recommend checking out the manga.
If by "fail to transcend the fact its anime", you mean that it never drops most anime tropes, you'd be right.....sort of. Almost every show with an anti-hero protagonist makes them ridiculously smart, clever, and athletic but Death Note subverts those tropes....sort of. Light starts out like that but very quickly meets his match and eventually he has to pretend that he isn't the killer because the guy who is trying to catch him in the act predicts that its him and coerces Light into handcuffing himself to him. This means that he either has to A) try to lie to the guy every time he asks a question regarding the Death Note or Kira (and Light can't, since the guy is a master of body language) or B) figure out a way to conveniently forget everything he did (he finds a way). This seems like the clincher, but after the time skip it happens AGAIN (except this time, he's locked in a cell with a camera feed on him 24/7) and he figures out a way to forget and remember AGAIN. You'd think he was in the clear after that, but well...then the ending happens. And it is GLORIOUS (pic related). Never will you ever be so glad to see the smug prick God-complex-having anti-hero protag get what's coming to him...or maybe you'll be disappointed like someone else I met. You'll never know until you see it.

Since I read the manga, I never had to listen to Misa's voice but reading her dialog was bad enough...until the ending, when you actually kinda feel bad for her (or not, she decided to shack up with the sociopathic killer).
I mean, she's an annoying attention whore teen-idol wannabe (she's a perky gothic lolita, sigh. what next?) but that didn't mean that Light had to manipulate her Shinigami into killing itself to save her and then further manipulating her afterwards. He could've just told her to fuck off from the beginning but she practically begged him to manipulate her, so he did. If you really hate her that much. his treatment should satiate your desire to fuck her over, but even then, its not clear what happens to her after the ending.

I'd recommend the comic over the show really. I personally got bored once the second half of the series began, but the first half is good enough on it's own that I didn't mind. you might want to read all the way through depending on your mileage.


this site is pretty good by the way, they scrape everything from mangatraders official volume releases, which you would need an account on mt to download normally. obv you could buy em too but you should wait till you know if you like it. comics and manga and shit are more expensive for how much entertainment you get versus buying actual books, which are cheap if they aren't new releases.

if you want other shit that doesn't really feel like anime, check out blame, berserk, and dorohedoro on the same site. the first is cyberpunk, the other two are dark fantasy.

You really shouldn't recommend those sites because they benefit from the works other people have done. Mangatraders for example takes form mangastream, an actual scanlation site where people devote hours of work to put out releases. Make sure to avoid visiting those para-sites (haha) and if you want to find a scanlated work look up the title on mangaupdates, find a group that did it and then visit the group's webpage and let them know in one way or another that you appreciate their work, otherwise you're just contributing to the downfall of the scanlation scene.
