I figured it would look better than the first season after all this time they've taken and the technical improvements we saw in kabaneri (it might not have been good but there was obvious care and effort put into it visually). it doesn't look bad, just roughly as good as the first season.

except cgi colossal titan anyways, that thing looks kind of bad. not berserk 16-17 bad of course, but disappointing compared to what he looked like in the first season. when they used cgi before it was just for faraway shots of people on horses, which looked bad up close but they usually never were. the colossal is kind of a centerpiece to the show so I hope they only use the cg model for a few overly complicated scenes and he's traditionally animated when the scene focuses on him.

I'm expecting a decent adaption overall though. can't wait to see the utgard arc in motion.

>Berserk 2017 episodes 1 and 2
I knew they would fuck up the hill of swords fight but they really fucked it up wow. The rest wasn't any better, though the cgi (not the animation or camera work) seems to have improved slightly, might just be my imagination though. seems it's the mostly same predictably bad trainwreck it was last year. camera angles, sound effects, soundtrack, motion, acting, pacing, cut/rushed/altered material, it's all still shit. you also can really tell they're cramming almost entire volumes into episodes with no forethought.

the intro was the only part with a small amount of effort put in, it was at the level of a later naruto or dragon ball super episode, instead of a bargain vhs chinese knockoff of the donkey kong country cgi cartoon like usual.

I've heard a few people defend this shitshow's soundtrack. I have to wonder if these people are actually retarded or not. Not that the songs in themselves are outright terrible or anything, but goddamn they just make bad scenes (pretty much every scene) that much worse because they're just not used well, ever. That's one of the most important (if not the most important) things to do with a soundtrack. They may be fine songs in their own right but in this show they're only serving to add to how utterly cheap it feels.

We were all hoping 2017 Berserk would bring improvement. Hopefully now we're all just waiting for it to die a quick death. I fucking love Berserk and would love to see it represented and adapted more than it has been, but it just doesn't deserve this.

read it and you will see why people dislike this show. Seriously, you're doing yourself a disservice by experiencing it that way. the comic even captures motion better than the show does, and fucking up motion itself is probably the worst sin an animation can commit.

You're doing everyone a disservice by being "that guy".

I just read through the the same chapters that covered the first episode of this current season and the fucking dialogue is verbatim the same thing. Hell even the pacing is the same. Does that mean you're main complaint and the thing that people like you won't shut up about is the difference in the art? WOW You mean a manga and an anime can look different!? SHOCKING!

If I hadn't already watched OG berserk a few years back all the dickheads like you I see online nowadays would have permanently soured me not just on the new anime but the entire franchise. I want to say the loudmouth crybaby neckbeards of the world are in the minority when it comes to the Berserk fandom but every youtube channel I go to there's an entire stack of fedoras foaming at the mouth about their perceived injustices and how a cartoon betrayed them. Fucking hell. It's not like the anime nullifies the fucking manga for godsake. If anything it made me want to delve deeper into the franchise, but now after seeing hundreds of shit flinging apes such as yourself who can't help themselves whenever they see a chance to feel superior to another person because they like comic books instead of cartoons it reminds me that it's impossible to genuinely like anything anymore and share it with people and that I should just keep my fucking mouth shut to avoid the maelstrom of professional steak eaters and frothy salt lords.

This marks the end of my angriest post on 420chan ever. I'm taking a break for a while. good day.

Was having a shit week/day. Needed the catharsis, i guess. You probably aren't a dick or a shit flinging ape.

I still think all the hate directed at Berserk 2016/2017 by the internet is unwarranted and overblown. I could debate the importance of the visual elements in a visually oriented medium for another six paragraphs but I already come off as a crazy person so I'm going to spare everyone that. I generally get pretty passionate and rail against bandwagons when I notice one even to the points of playing devils advocate for things that the apparent internet hivemind deems trash. Oh the arguments I've had over Dragon Ball Super...

that's totally alright. and someone has to be the devil's advocate for stuff like this. I will say I like the intro for berserk 17 at least. it fits the series and arc, and the song does too. I liked their song for the last season as well. honestly I loved that goofy ass song they used for berserk 97 too lol.

there are a ton of series that only have ~25 episodes, start your search there. Too many for me to list, but MAL exists. Just check them out by amount of episodes or something

Don;t discount the shorter, ~12 episode animes though, because you can miss out on some real gems like Ping Pong. You could smash that out over a weekend and it would be a weekend very well spent

What was good in the winter season? Especially into anything mecha, anything that goes full meta (like Samurai Flamenco style), and any occult horror. Not generally into slice of life unless it's really good.

Also, are there any good anime with a Twin Peaks, "slowly uncover the horrible secrets of everyone in town while trying to solve a murder mystery" vibe?

Second ep was slightly better but still underwhelming and I didn't even expect much from it. I mean nothing strikes me as bad in particular but I already can tell how it is going from here. A very by the numbers show.

Now Bahamut 2 on the other hand is very solid and my favorite show this season. In terms of animation quality it's almost as good as the first series but direction and design make up for it. You can really see that mobage money being poured in. Everything is handled so well in this show even things like fanservice or exposition. A very well handled sequel and I'm excited to see what they do with 24 episodes this time.
Favaro soon

dubs are always sub-par. a dub might be 'good', certainly, but it's always not as good as the original. Cowboy Bebop? Yeah, 100% it has a good dub. Even I, the subs cunt, can listen to it and not cringe. The subs are still better though. 99% of the time, dubs are terrible. But even for the 1% of good dubs, subs are better.

Sheeeiiit nigga even with Space Dandy, I still prefer the japanese. It's so odd. I feel like SD should have gone either way for me but my bias still holds. And with english cartoons, I still prefer the original language. It's definitely not just me being a 'nippon superior' weeaboo. Dubs are just plain inferior, no matter what way it's coming from.

I mentioned funmation being quick with their dubs then was replied to about how it isn't hard to be quick when you don't care about quality. So it seems we were talking about dubs from the beginning.

>I meant the quality of the subtitles available on streaming websites

I've rarely had issues with subtitles, think the most recent issues was when DBS started. Those subtitles were horrible. Otherwise I don't mind small mistakes every so often if it means I get to watch anime as they come out the same day.

Just watched Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade (1999) a couple of days ago. First time I ever seen it and honestly one of the only anime things I've watched in months. Fucking hell, whatever happened to anime? Why is it all moeblob shit these days? I havent watched any new anime coming out since like, maaaaaybe 2013. And that bothers me, quite frankly. I want to like the new stuff coming out but hardly anything takes itself seriously and the amount of fanservice and pandering to the otaku demographic is seriously starting to alienate me from anime altogether. Whatever happened to the gritty artstyles, the deep and involved morally ambiguous narratives teaching a bitter lesson? Ya just don't see shit like that anymore.

I'd say the red riding hood analogy, but also how they handled the relationship between Fuse and the girl. And how it all got wrapped up in the ending (which I somehow did not see coming) when she started screaming at him. I also liked the animation. The people, for the most part, looked more or less like people. The color palette was quite drab but then again that is they were going for.

Mainly, I liked the story and how it was told. It was largely believable from an alternate-history point of view. But it also never went over the top. Nothing was overly exagerrated about the characters motions or expressions or voices. You believe that the story could somehow actually happen.

Except for the mega nazi-looking armored paramilitary force slinging around MG42's, of course.

Anyone still watching One Piece? I took a break after dresserosa, and caught up today. The 700+ episodes are really starting to pay up, with everything slowly starting to come together, and I get the impression stuff is happening a lot faster now (for OP standards).
I'm really hyped for the Big Mom, the crazy musical scene at the end of last episode had some twisted alice in wonderland vibes going.

This is the anime general right? I don't care, I'm drunk, so it is!
Just finished watching Planetes, and I'm in a very emotional state right now. Like, almost welcome to the nhk level feels. That shit was good. Goes from being a light hearted slice-of-life IN SPACE, to being sort of emotional, to being REALLY INTENSE, to being REALLY EMOTIONAL. I didn't cry, because I'm a man, so I don't feel strong emotions, but like, dude.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to next season of Drifters

there was a teaser video aired after the season finale showing what manga volumes the next season would supposedly cover. If they plan on covering all of the uprising and shiganshina arcs that's more than 12 episodes, but wouldn't really fill out a full 24 episode 2 cour series. 15-18 eps maybe? I don't think they could cram both of those arcs down to 12.

I can tell you it's definitely not rotoscoping, which is a thing that happens rarely in anime. This is the work of some guy by the name of Shinya Ohira, who worked on a bunch of classic titles like akira and bubblegum crisis among others and to this day is known for some of the best action scenes.

As much as my inner otaco would love to know wtf is being said in Japanese, to me, dubs are better because I can pay full attention to the overall show instead of reading the entire scene and only see the end of it to when it changes, even if it's not a direct translation. Really, I believe I watch most anime for the art & any philosophy first and story &/or dialogue second.

What's REALLY difficult is trying to read the sub and hear the dub at the same time. ;)

I tend to watch an anime series once every couple of months. I don't bother looking into the series but I tend to use my best judgement. This time I decided to finally check out Attack on Titan and.. I'm already caught up to the end of Season 2. :(

I always thought AoT was most likely a modern anime with filler beach episodes and tropes out the orifice. The show could have easily been like the 2nd OVA but it wasn't. Despite a few particular character quirks and scenes the series was great. The dark tone and 'almost' no character being protected from death made it intense to watch, hell I even fell into the loop of 'one more episode before bed' just to see the outcome. Even finishing the series I'm still wondering the true meaning behind it all.


I have a little more time to burn so if anyone has any recommendations for me to watch of a similar genre and quality let me know, more gritty the better.

I finished up the first season of Sound! Euphonium yesterday and watched a couple episodes of the second.
I wasn't expecting much when I first watched it because I was kind of bored in the first one or two episodes but I ended up loving it by the last. A lot of the characters feel very human and it has beautiful animation.
The yuribait is strong with this show though. Every Reina x Kumiko scene I wanted to scream "JUST KISS ALREADY" at the TV but still the scenes between the two are very cute. I hope sometime in the second season Reina admits her love to Taki and he turns her down so KumikoxReina can be an item but this is a KyoAni show, theres 0 chance of anything happening between the two. They also keep showing Taki looking at a picture of (what I assume to be) his dead wife, but they never fully show her face. I think it would be great if when they do show the full picture she looks really similar to Reina

I'm also almost done with Eromanga-sensei, which is funny but theres some parts that make me question just what the fuck i'm watching exactly, like when Megumi comes to the door and starts talking about dicks and how every girl her age loves dick like what the fuck. I do hope it gets a second season though I'm enjoying it

Theres FMA or FMA: Brotherhood and NGE but you probably have already watched those since they're pretty entry level. Other than that I can't really recommend much since I usually stick to SoL, drama and comedies, but i've watched those two and AoT.
Also I haven't seen them but the Fate series and RE:zero seem to be popular right now, and I'm pretty sure the most recent Fate show is a standalone so you can just start from there. You could read the AoT manga too if you're itching for more of that, I think it the end of season 2 is around chapter 50 of the manga and the show follows the manga pretty closely so you shouldn't be lost. I've read up to chapter 70 or so from the chapter that starts after season 2 and theres been no problem.

Rotoscoping is very rare in anime, and it's funny how everyone thinks that anime is the only animation in the world that cuts corners when it has the best animation and highest production values.

>Otaku pandering does not exist.
That depends on your definition of "pandering", you could also say it's "market-oriented" if you like euphemism. Fact is that in a time of dimishing diposable income and shifting demographic, companies have to rely on buyers who are willing to spend an disproportianately high amount of money. Otaku and in recent times otome/fujoshi in particular provide that audience. It's not as frequent as some people want to make you believe, but it's there so in every season you end up with something like Eromanga Sensei or fujoshibait like Yuri on Ice. Not to mention all the ecchi shows that have vod services showing uncensored versions of said shows.
But you don't have to believe me, just listen to this studio boss.

Something isn't pandering just because you don't like it. Things like Eromanga-sensei are normal in Japan and the content industries are filled with otaku. The Western concept of "otaku" is pure fiction, just a bogeyman that represents everything considered undesirable and is supposedly something completely separate from "normal" people.

>But you don't have to believe me, just listen to this studio boss.
  1. He runs a support studio that doesn't produce anything of its own. He doesn't get to make anything he wants no matter what the market trends are.
  2. Otaku are part of the industry.
  3. "Otaku" things are far more normal in Japan than you think.
  4. People make a lot of anime every season that doesn't represent otaku stereotypes, it's just that Westerners absolutely refuse to watch any of it or even acknowledge it exists.

From what i remember, she's part of a group that helps NEETs.

He's a bit of a dick to her though, so why she keeps helping him is questionable.

But if you've ever met a religious girl (which is what she reminds me of), then it's kinda realistic. Some people just have really good hearts.

>re:creators

Time for some real talk here. This show has consistently gone downhill since the mid season recap. What the hell is even properly happening anymore? Every damn episode is about a character revealing new powers that end up not doing anything at all. There is a SERIOUS issue with the attempt at "suspense, tension, release" to the point that within 2 minutes another character is overwhelmed, reveals a power, Altair looks surprised, then reveals it actually had no effect and she knew all along.

And speaking of Altair, we get it. She's the bad guy. It's not even a spoiler because we fucking knew it from the first time she's introduced (you know, as the villain). Why do they keep giving her these "in the villain" monologues???

Everything good about this show is long gone and the characters have become shallow parodies of their own ironic nature. It's pathetic. I really liked where everything was going halfway through but after this third or fourth boss fight episode with no progress it's discouraging to even look forward to the only anime I was enjoying this season.

Fuck it, I'll just find some harem ecchi trash at this point because at least there's a good sensible plot to follow

If nothing else the problem is rooted in spreading the focus across too many characters. Since everyone has to have their special moment in each episode, the pacing suffers and none of it seems very important because no progress is made.

Same thing happened in Estival Versus to an extent, but at least all the characters in that were kawaii af n pleasant to look at.

Classroom of the Elite is airing currently and I'm 2 episodes in.
Very interesting show so far but theres something so off about it, in a good way. The music, the character designs, everything about it is so ominous and creepy. I'm definitely willing to bet that theres something darker going on beneath the surface as far as the school goes.

Theres also a new Princess Principal out which I've been keeping up with and it was pretty good. Got some Ange/Charlotte background which made Princess a more tolerable character, but operation changeling still seems to be moving at a snails pace. I'd still say that this is my favorite anime of the season so far, even when the episodes don't focus on the main plot they're fun to watch

I also got around to starting Melancholy of Haruhi a couple days ago and I'm finishing up the endless eight arc right now. What fuckin madman decided on that, holy shit, I really really tried to make it through all 8 but I had to skip to the last one after the third. I did read the wiki summaries of the ones I skipped just to make sure I didn't miss anything important though. Apparently people recommend the broadcast order when watching the whole series which I just now found out about so I guess I'll watch it in that order when I come back to it in the future, but for now I'm going to keep watching chronological since i'm already 20 episodes in.
There doesn't seem to be any problem with the chronological anyways I've been enjoying it

The Disappearance of Haruhi was fucking fantastic, hard to believe its almost 3 hours long because it was so interesting it flew by. Made me like Nagato even more. Theres been small developments in her character over the series and movie, but someone like her they're huge. That after credit scene where she hides a smile behind her book was just perfect. The whole story was a rollercoaster ranging from heartbreaking to smile inducing, can't imagine being Kyon and having to watch yourself get stabbed and not being able to interfere because it would further fuck up the timeline. I think my favorite part of the movie is right near the end where Kyon wakes up in the hospital and talks to Koizumi then realizes Haruhi has been right next to him the whole time wormed up in her sleeping bag.
Haruhi is usually an annoyance but she has her moments.
The movie made it very clear that all 5 of the SOS brigade have a strong link to each other
Think I might give that Nagato spinoff a try even though it seems to be a moeshit parody, could be fun

Can anyone recommend me new anime that isn't cutsey-cutsey stuff? Something more serious. Watching Death Parade at the moment and the themes are really nice. I like Death Note, Berserk, Monster, One Punch Man, and JoJo to give a framework. Shonen is good if it isn't bleach or Naruto style.

I sort of miss watching anime for some reason. I'm down to watch anything from the 90's or early 2000's. If it isn't Cowboy Bebop, Prison School, Berserk, HxH, Vagabond, or One Piece, it's off my radar for a good reason. Can anyone give some good shows?

be warned, most light novels are called light for a reason. they're missing a lot of what makes a book, being largely dialogue. if you like the characters enough that might be fine for you though. I don't know much about haruhi, the weirdness with the episode order always scared me off. I honestly might buy the Berserk light novel about Grunbeld if Dark Horse translates it though. I'm not into light novels and the writer is the same hack who handled the 16/17 anime, but the art miura drew for it has me curious.

Started up Re:Zero last night and its been really entertaining so far
Just finished the episode where Subaru finds out Rem is the one trying to kill him.. This is definitely a "just one more episode" type show leaving you wanting more and more by the end. Funny how Emilia is voiced by the same chick who does Megumin, I recognized it immediately, and Felt is Shinka from Chuunibyou. I hope to see more of her in the future I enjoyed those couple of episodes she was in, Old Man Rom too.

"I love Emilia"
Well shit. I fully understand the meme now, that was cold as fuck.
I watched like 7 more episodes and in that time my opinion on Rem completely turned, she is 100% for sure best girl of this series.
Still not fully sure what causes the checkpoint system with Subaru's respawns but if I had to guess it has something to do with when/how he is healed with magic, or at least thats what it seems like. Betelgeuse is definitely interesting and twisted (pun intended), that scene with Rem really fucked me up. The parts where Ram and Emilia were asking who Rem was like she was erased from ever existing sent chills down my spine too that is some messed up psychological shit. I dont know if it was just Subaru going crazy or if it had something to do with the white whale because thats when it seemed to start, either way it was spooky.
Gonna leave episode 18 and the rest for tomorrow, i've had too much of this wild ride tonight I want off. Probably gonna watch some GochiUsa or something I definitely need something happy and cute after all that

That would be a damn fine year for anime if none of those get pushed to 2019. I'm a little iffy on mob psycho though, it's being worked on but I don't know to what degree. also jojo could get delayed another year who knows. they want it to look good I suppose, I'm told it's japan's favorite part.

one could only hope , come to think of it stone ocean and steel ball run probably wont happen anytime in the next few years. run would be absolutly amazing animated and stone ocean would probably end up getting so much rule 34 the internet would drown.

>Attack on Titan S3
i pretty much dropped the manga after the basement then last week decided to just binge it all to the current at a coffee shop on my tablet.
i just dunno, was really hoping it would have gone in another direction instead of this

Are you expect an anime that shows screencaps of the manga in the OP to deviate from the manga? You're out of luch there..

steel ball run is easily the one I'm most excited about seeing in the future after part 5, It's gonna be a long ass wait to see it in motion but it will be worth it. Especially if 5 and 6 make a good profit. hopefully they don't just stop at part 6, I wanna see it all animated some day. Personally I rate the parts like this 4 > 5 > 7 > 2 > 1 > 3 > 6 > 8. Not that I dislike 6 or 8, I just think 8 is unfocused and 6 needed more polish. Speaking of Stone Ocean I'm curious if they're gonna fix stuff that was retconned later, like Anasui being a chick and half his size initially.

>stone ocean would probably end up getting so much rule 34 the internet would drown.
I didn't even think of that but you're right. the animators will probably try to make her look less manly and more sexy too, like they did with the female stand users in part 3. I think the part 3 anime added this whole 30 second sequence focusing on mariah's ass walking away from joseph and abdul.

>>387707
well they did deviate at the end of season 1. most of that shit happened and eren never went berserk like eva unit 01. annie's crystal thing wasn't as intense either. other than that though yeah it's damn near the same. I think they pushed a season 3 ymir flashback to season 2 and that was about it.

Well, Re:Creators was absolute trash again. I'm gonna see this through to the end which I'm hoping is within the next 3 episodes. What a fucking disaster in pacing.

It's ironic to the point it hurts that the shows premise is about making a good story that viewers will love and accept.

We all saw that "surprise" character coming like 7 episodes ago, come on.

Anyone here watched "Isekai wa Smartphone to Tomo ni."?
I've never had a guilty pleasure anime before, but this definitely is just that. It's an otaku power fantasy in its most refined form. The MC gets teleported to a fantasy world with some buffed stats as an apology from god because he wasn't meant to die yet.

I'm not really spoiling anything important below, but putting it up anyway.
He's swimming in underaged pussy, there's at least 2 princesses among the bunch and the king is even "oh yeah you can totally marry my daughter, go for it faggot" so no tension there either.
He's also the strongest fucking magic user in the entire world, he can learn any spell by just learning its name and purpose. So of course he can heal any disease, injury, poison etc which he uses to make everyone suck his dick because he's just so talented and amazing.
After learning conjuration he summoned a literal god and bound it to his service.
He starts crafting fucking self reloading guns and shit with magic .
He can open teleportation gates to anywhere.
The list goes on.


He's also clueless about the girls being infatuated with him, as per usual in haremshit.
Oh and sometimes he uses his smartphone to look up cooking recipes online, hence the title name :^)

Anime from ~2010. Action-oriented waifu bait about a militarized exorcist corps. Specifically the 2 QT top agents, IIRC one's a yandere ninja who the demon hoards want to possess and the other is a girl-next-door type with a badass dragon ghost growing out of her back.
Given the circumstances around when/how I saw it I may be biased, but it was badass AF and I adored it. Finale kicks you in the nuts a bit, but that's the catch: it's called "Zero" because it's the prequel tie-in to a manga called Ga-Rei. Which is about an unrelated protag blundering into these girls' wacky world of Shaman-King-James-Bond brouhaha years later. It's 13 episodes of backstory exposition for the supporting cast of another medium. Still great, all the same. As is the manga; one of only 2 times I've ever gone out of my way to read one. But it would've been nice to see the main fucking work get the animation treatment too.

The first half was entertaining and had enough potential to move with. Problem was the show killed itself by dragging the viewer through a gravel road of a pointless, predictable fight over the course of 8 episodes with minimal plot development throughout. They seriously could've made it work fine in 2 episodes and left it and I would call the show "not all that bad."

It felt like watching an old DBZ fight except you didn't care about any of the characters, there is no Goku to cheer for, and the bitchy spectators don't even jump to get their ass kicked.

Dang nigga Made in Abyss is fucking great
I love how you can look at art and the characters and think oh they this is going to be a fun fantasy adventure then NOPE shit gets super real super fast. And with some anime they just throw in darkness and gore for the hell of it hoping you care enough about the characters to be effected by it but that is so not the case with this one. The storytelling and pacing is excellent right from the first episode it really hits you when certain things happen. not to mention the god tier animation and OST
I really hope its not another one of those shows thats just made to sell the manga and we get a second season, judging by the comments on KA and just the general world building and mysteries in the show they have material to do it.
I cannot wait for the next episode this definitely moved into my #1 of the season
They should make a game out of this shit I would absolutely love to play something with this setting, just have you be a red whistle working your way up the ranks would be awesome

I'm glad you posted about this. Just watched it and I agree that it's pretty good.

So the new Made in Abyss:
Nenechi is great, I love her attitude. What are we thinking that Muk looking hollow she lives with is? It clearly knew something about Riko so the obvious choice would be its a deformed Lyza but thats just it, that would be too obvious so I don't think the show would go that route. We don't know much about Riko's father or his death yet so that could be another option, but i'm betting its just one of Lyza's travelling companions a fellow white whistle maybe.
I think I might start reading the manga from whatever chapter this episode ended on I'm too eager to wait another week for more

Zero is a prequel but it stands alone very well, it gives more context if you've seen or played stay night but isn't all that connected of a story, UBW is an alternate route in the original game, basically a different take on the same story, and widely considered where the game gets really really good. The first anime series is just a by the numbers adaptation of the first and least memorable of three story routes aimed at people who are already fans.

If you wanna be that kind of guy and do everything in order play the game before watching anything.

I gave DBGT another chance. This time, in Japanese. If you ever feel like you want to give this show another chance, this is the only way to watch it. Akihito Tokunaga's score makes more sense than Mark Menza's shitty, grunge score. I never thought I'd say this, but GT is way better than Super. GT isn't without flaws, but I feel like too many people focus on what the show's wrongs rather than what it did right. I can't stand how Toryima turned Goku into a fucking, and how Beerus, Whis, and SSB remove all tension from the show.

They are as bad as each other. infact, in my head dragon ball as a franchise should have ended after cell, how on earth can you top a villian which is literally made up of the best bits of the strongest fighters to ever live on earth? it just doesnt make sense to me.
Cell is when powerlevels still had some kind of foot in the game but were beginning to get super ridiculous. SSJ3 and 4 are fucking dumb, SSJgod and blue are even dumber.

ive watched GT in japanese and its bad just not as bad as the english dub. i mean the whole turning goku into a kid again was the dumbest move, pan and trunks was cool but they should have done more to retain them.

Also goku has always been a moron an is a moron in every series, it makes him "relateable"

This season hasn't exactly been full of great shows but there's a few good ones
Made in abyss if you like fantasy or action, honestly even if you don't you can enjoy this show it's the best of the season and one of the best I've seen in years. Extremely interesting story and concept that's executed nearly perfectly, the animation and OST are beautiful too
Princess Principal has a pretty good story, setting and characters
Tsurezure Children if you like romance or comedy, it's already over and the episodes were short ones but still it was very enjoyable and funny and even got me to start reading the manga which is just as good, although I'm disappointed they left out a few couple from the manga in the anime
Classroom of the Elite is alright, started out strong but got pretty meh these last few episodes
I also hear Kakegurui is pretty good but I've yet to start that
If you want just plain stupid fun watch Isekai Smartphone, it's so shameless and ridiculous you can't help but laugh, the MC is so overpowered it's pretty much a joke
Gamers is also just alright but that will be over next week. It's pretty much Misunderstandings: the anime but there's a lot of funny moments

Started up Railgun on wednesday after finishing the first season of Index, i'm about half way through.
Its good not great. A lot lighter story but I liked Misaka in Index so its nice to have a show just about her, Kuroko is annoying as all fuck though. The Touma cameos are pretty funny so far and I'm hoping they expand on the Sisters arc since that was one of my favorite parts from Index, that and Accelerator becoming an anti-hero of sorts, hoping he gets more screentime when I start watching Index II after I finish this[/%]

Yeah the fights are pretty good really the only thing that irks me is the magic, so I gave it another chance tonight and the fourth episode was actually pretty great.
It was the episode showing Rinne's backstory, how she got bullied by those 3 little bitches and she ends up fucking wrecking them at school, that was great to watch she just smashes that girls face into a wall its crazy
And considering how the magic hasn't been taking up too much time and theres only 8 episodes left for me to watch I might as well keep with it, the pros outweigh the cons anyways

>Fate/Zero
The two episodes I watched were already more interesting and better written than the entirety of Stay Night, if I had to hear Shirou shout "SABAHHH" one more time I think I would have gone completely mad. Still, I think I made the right decision watching that first, its nice to see references to it throughout the episodes and to see some backstory and more information about characters like Sakura and Illya, plus SN had a lot of Saber and I liked Saber and look forward to her scenes in Zero. I could also mention the improved animation but I don't think thats really fair considering how they came out years apart. I like the servants a lot better too, this ones caster is pretty creepy, I'm probably gonna marathon a ton of it tonight.
With SN in mind I also think its gonna be interesting to see the differences between SN and SN:UBW and SN:HF when I get to those. If I had to make one guess i'd say Shirou falls in love with either Sakura or Rin in those rather than saber.

>Oregairu S2
There was a whole tonal shift with this season, not that I'm complaining exactly its just that the change in animation studios was jarring enough they completely flipped how this show feels. First season was like 50/50 comedy/drama and this season seems to be more like 20/80 to a point where the comedy almost feels out of place. I don't hate it though, there has been a lot of great and really depressing scenes during the 9 episodes i've seen so far so I'm probably gonna finish that up tonight with the Fate episodes I watch. I really understand how people hail this as one of the best anime dramas around its got great writing and characters with very human conflicts
I think its funny how the new studio obviously tried to make Hikki more attractive, I looked at some reviews recently and someone said it was like he hit puberty in between seasons, thats exactly how it feels

>Sword Art Online
I started this just to see what all the fuss was about when people say how bad it gets and I guess i'm just a masochist. Right off the bat the pacing in this show is just fucking awful, how am I supposed to give a shit about these characters dying when you introduce them at the beginning of the episode and kill them at the end they might as well be nameless cannon fodder characters, and then you have shit like Kirito and Asuna fucking and getting married and moving in together, and the last episode I watched they got a pseudo-daughter what the hell . Kirito is a total mary sue too, OP as hell. But hey I like fantasy stuff and the premise aint half bad, i'm just wondering if it turns into total laughable, enjoyable shit or just plain shit. Either way i'll probably at least finish up the first season.

I also started a few more from my seemingly unending backlog but haven't really watched enough of them to form an opinion.

Looks like the seasons coming to an end, pretty much everything i've been keeping up with is over I guess I should check out whats coming up in fall/winter to see what I want to watch. Anyone got any suggestions for the coming season?

Can anyone recommend me something to watch? I've been watching anime since i was 12, i'm 20 now, and feel like i've seen all the true gems. I'm not a snob, mostly, but I will say my favorites are Mushi-shi, JoJos, Eva, and everything satoshi kon.

I've been trying to get into more modern stuff but for the last 2 years the only up to date anime I really liked was jojo's, tried boku no hero and it just wasn't for me, AoT season 2 feels so lifeless, and eveything else i've tried just didn't do it. Of course I don't have time to go through everything thats came out so i'm asking you guys: Is there anything good in 2017?
I'm excited for kinos journey continuation but that's about it.

if you liked eva you might like knights of sidonia. hunter x hunter might be up your alley if you liked jojo, especially if you also liked yu yu hakusho (same author). if you somehow haven't heard of one punch man check that out it's real fun, same guy did mob psycho 100 which is also good but don't go into it expecting one punch man all over again. I don't know much else though if you only want really recent stuff, everything recent I'm interested in hasn't even been aired yet or I haven't watched it yet. made in abyss and castlevania seem good and I'm looking forward to promare and jojo part 5.

Manga spoilers: I'm not sure if that was meant to be what I think you're talking about, since they don't try to send that balloon until after bondrewd when they reach the capital of the unreturned. Could be though, maybe they just decided to move that scene to way earlier

You're really overestimating the fanbase. All Japan cares about now are Idols and their a huge success. Otakus nowadays dont need violence and gore to enjoy something like some people do.

yea i dunno about all that , thats like saying devilman and fist of the north star have a small fanbase as well.

plus i really dont profess to have a complete understanding of japanese otaku culture past the general 5 types and basic fujoshi, but for the most part violence and graphic content in most mature shows has not gone into decline at all over there.

That genre is genre is dead bro. You cant even name one new Seinen anime with violence and gore in the past five season. We on the other hand get five new idol shows every season. Otakus want to obsess over idols nut get mad at gore ntr old as dirt edgy shitshows. Berserk fans are pretty vocal on this website because most users here are americans and they love violence but nobody gives a shit outside of your little bubble.

i could go on , but to state that seinen anime that is specifically violence and gore would be disingenuous to what constitutes the divergance from shonen to seinen in anime.


>most users here are americans and they love violence but nobody gives a shit outside of your little bubble.

well we can agree to disagree ,because it seems you may be trying to steer the conversation into subjective personal experience territory by wholly omitting violence in extremely popular shonen shows and its targeted market audience .

I just started watching the anime Bungou Stray Dogs. It's so obvious who this anime is meant to appeal to that it's depressing when it actually does appeal to you. The main character is an orphan boy who has been told he's worthless his entire life and got kicked out of the orphanage and has no friends and think's he's worthless and then all of a sudden he finds out he has magical powers and joins some secret awesome detective agency where the only thing he has to do to get admitted is be a good person by sacrificing himself to stop a fake bomb from killing a bunch of people. It's so obviously designed to appeal to lonely young men with no self esteem who want a fantasy escape where they can self insert even with their shitty self esteem and have things turn out great that it's just depressing to watch. I wish I could just not think about all this shit and just watch it but I can't. If only there was a seinen where the main character wasn't a depressed self hating piece of shit with no confidence or social skills who got magical powers/friends to compensate for all that.

Made in Abyss has a really good look to it. It's very generic anime type art and yet at the same time it's very clean and unique. I know this sounds contradicting but it's the only way I can describe it. Maybe someone can do a better job than me...

While the violence in Berserk is entertaining, that isn't the main point of Berserk. You are doing it wrong if you get into Berserk just for the gore and male power fantasies. Not to say those aren't entertaining but the gore and violence are both background noise in comparison to the rest of Berserk.

The somber moments and the speeches is what makes Berserk stand out from the rest.

>It's very generic anime type

I've noticed that bad anime tend to have this art style. If the art style is different enough to have it's own style, they tend to be good. It's a good indicator as to whether or not an anime is good.

Is it the generic gigantic eyed overly expressive facial expression anime? It's bad.

Does the anime express itself uniquely and lean more towards realism? It's good.

99% is the former. 1% the latter.

Ty for recommending me Hunter x Hunter. I'm into ep 64 and I'm really liking it. I am also surprised to find out that there is an earlier animation of the show and it actually looks good. After watching the new one, watching the old one might be a good watch.

The anime starts off slow and didn't know what to make of it at first, but it surprised me.

It must suck to have a scope this limited. In anime art style is almost always subjected to the current trends.
>lean more towards realism
I don't think anime is the right direction when looking for realism or maybe you mean realistic body proportions or things like that? In that case you should really broaden your horizon.
>99% is the former. 1% the latter.
Not even remotely true.

By the way Made in Abyss has that character design because it was taken directly from the manga which is drawn by lolicon so he likes it when they look like that.

It's a generalization. Not that a generic looking animu can't also be good.

Monster is the height of realism that I can think of. An Asian character looks Asian. A German looks German. Facial expressions are more natural rather than an extreme exaggeration. Not that exaggeration can't be good if used correctly and not overused. It depends on the overall style of the artist (Hellsing Ultimate OVA is a good example.) A good example of a bad anime within the generalization of good and bad would be Berserk 2017. The art is atypical and it goes more for realism, but it's trash.

I use my generalization as a rule of thumb; Not as a rule written in stone.

I'm always up for good anime recommendations, but the list seems extremely small in comparison to the multitude of anime churned out every year. I can't speak for anyone, but most of what I see on Crunchyroll is junk, and most of the junk are generic cutesy, cutesy big eyed extravaganzas.


Fist of North Star
Trigun
Cowboy Bebop
Neon Evangelion
Welcome to NHK
Bushishi
Hunter x Hunter
Dragon Ball
Monster
Berserk 1996
Death Note
Death Parade
JoJo Bizarre Adventure

There's maybe 20 more worth watching. Out of the over 12,000 anime in existence, that's not much at all.

But that's the thing about subjectivity, I guess; You'd say that I was picky or I didn't explore enough. To that I would say: "I'd like if you can prove me wrong. I WANT to be entertained, and I WANT my Crunchyroll subscription to go further".

Remember, GT wasn't written by Toriyama. Toriyama says tails can't grow back after they've been cut.

Also, Gohan had a tail because he has dominant Saiyan genes, Trunks and Goten and Bra don't because they have dominant Human genes.

The scary bit is that dominant human half-saiyans are stronger than both saiyans and dominant saiyan half-saiyans as shown by how easily Trunks and Goten achieved Super Saiyan.

The rage that allows Saiyans and Saiyan dominant half-Saiyans to suddenly fight like mad (and their giant monkey form) actively hinders the achieving of Super Saiyan, so a half-Saiyan with a human mindset can achieve Super Saiyan at an absurd young age thanks to being much more calm than normal saiyans or saiyan dominant half-saiyans.
See, Super Saiyan is achieved through an seemingly paradoxal state of anger and mental clarity. Goku achieved SS when anger seeped into his typical happy-to-fight mental state. Vegeta achieved SS when the realisation of the futility of his actions to achieve SS removed his anger at Goku. Gohan achieved SS when he learned to unleash his anger.

Goten and Trunks achieved SS during a playfight. Goes to show how much that human mentality affects the barrier of entry for the SS state.

This just keeps getting more and more strange with each episode and always leaves me wondering what the hell I'm watching exactly. And I can only handle one episode at a time just because I feel so strange after watching one. Not depressed really just...unsettled.

got any specific questions? It's been a while since I've seen lain, but it is my favorite anime, and i love discussing it.

>The artstyle & music
Check out some of Yoshitoshi Abe's other works. Texnolyze, which is similar in themes, but a lot darker (it's really nihilistic - i wouldn't recommend for everyone), NieA_7 which is lighthearted and Haibane Renmei which is in between Lain and NieA_7.

There was also a short series called Platonic Chain (short in that episodes were like 10 min each), that was completely unrelated to lain, but had a similar look and feel. It was set in a place not so different from ours with teenagers interacting with social networking technology that was just a little more advanced... it was also in 3d! Kinda interesting stuff for 2002... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLnAvKRbZz0&list=PL9iS6Wx384eLCf7wESg9c8fh-j33yEr1d
