I know normally everyone hates filler and chooses to skip it when given the option but in those rare moments when people do watch filler are there any filler side villains/characters that peak your interest? Like you know they're not canon to the manga but something about them intrigues you?

I have a couple I actually really enjoyed Toma Sakaki from Rurouni Kenshin's Season 1 filler of the Jinpuu squad Assassination Arc. He's the leader of a dangerous group of elite assassin's only rivaled by the Oniwaban Group. When the prominent members of the Oniwaban Group were viciously assassinated by Takeda Kanryū new line of gatling guns they decided to rise up the ranks from the assassin pecking order and try to make a name for their organization taking commissions from higher politicians to remove all signs of competition

If there is one thing that remains consistent with watching Rurouni Kenshin even if its just a non canon filler arc fucking EVERYONE hates the Imperalists even if the reasons are the flimsiest reasons to even get angry

I still have no clue why they even bothered commissioning a 3rd season of this anime. Season 2 is so tightly knit it doesn't even have time for Filler because every episode after the last is important. This show must have been commissioning some mad ratings money which it wouldn't shock me it was the best show on Toonami

Like Season 1's filler is whatever. The Non-Canon Pirate Arc that took place after Kenshin stopped Sanosuke from committing a terrorist bombing wasn't the worst filler arc i've seen but it really does show that baring the Jinpuu arc a lot of the filler arcs had their budget cut very noticeably like how the dubs would just cut off since they couldn't lip sync fast enough for the scenes in question or everyone just looks like they're melting

Case in point the Non-Canon episode where Yahiko and Sanosuke attempt to save a young girl who is dying of heart cancer from a group of thugs who have been committing random terrorist acts in the area because they wanted to scare the Yakuza out of town

Lmao, I just moved to Japan and haven't had my pc working for 4 months. I just got my new place and set up everything and 420chan has an anime board now? Fuck yes. Can this be a general Japan thread?

Has anyone else ever lived here? Its pretty wild. No weed fucking sucks and it an be a bit of a challenge to do stuff here as my Japanese isn't that good and the work culture sucks, but going outside and seeing anime everywhere is pretty cool.

Yeah it is. Japan is great to visit for a week max but to live here is to condemn yourself to a life of confusion and horror. I’d hate to be Japanese. It is not my place to speak of other cultures, we all have our problems, but there are so many rules and strict ways of dealing with others that whomever you are as an individual you better off just forgetting.
I come here almost every year and they still look so alien to me. I don’t understand how some people can find Japanese girls attractive. Whenever I’m here, I miss the girls from back home.

It's cute, romantic, most of them pass the bechdel test, female characters are always fleshed out and realistic, male characters are always impossibly cool and ripped. I just don't get the hate. Is it just a case of social conditioning? How is Princess Jellyfish not better than Twilight?

I have been the sole exception in my group of female friends my entire life. The few times I tried to get some of them into it, while they always give it a fair shot, they end up going right back to mind-numbing reality TV. What am I missing? I'm probably enthusiastic so I'm sure I'm missing something...

I'm a lady and I consider myself pretty feminist, while being pretty weeby. Reactionaries give people this idea that Anime and Video games conflict with feminism completely and you can't be a feminist and enjoy these things. You can criticize tropes and so on, but not be completely against them, for example, when people talk about representation of more body types and such, they're not saying get rid of all video games with sexy female characters with the perfect ideal body, just saying the video game market needs to not be saturated with that and it has gotten better over the years. I still love my pretty characters, and I especially love cute anime characters.
The things I'm mostly concerned about when it comes to Japan from a feminism prespective, is high amount of sexual harassment from employers onto employees, which they've been making an effort to combat lately. Japan also has many other issues with sexualizing underage girls and such, which is reflected in anime a lot.
It's easy to just find many of these sexualizations of young female anime characters as just cute cartoon characters though, and I don't know enough, don't believe it's causing so many people to fantasizing over 14 year old (non-cartoon) girls, that wouldn't otherwise. These issues are very complicated, so it's just best to enjoy your anime waifus while being aware of feminist issues you may personally find important.

I also want to add, I really appreciate Japanese cute culture, I think from a feminist prospective, I enjoy that young boys in Japan can enjoy cute things without it being a scary demasculinizing thing, like it is over in the US and similar countries. Toxic masculinity doesn't seem to be as bad in Japan, in a lot of ways.

Idk. Mostly weirdos pay attention to anime in the first place so it probably wouldn't make as big of a stink as you imagine.

Maybe they could get away with it by exploiting sjw's willingness to accept cultural differences

Perhaps worthy of note is that it's a reverse pedo show. It's the little girl who is the one constantly making sexual advances and perverted gestures towards the adult man. If it were the other way around then it wouldn't been able to air at all, not even in japan.

Shows like this are part of a realm of humor unknown to most Anglo society and common in....well, basically just Japan. Most cultures aren't willing to joke about pedophilia and if they are, its steeped in dark humor...its gotta be as black as crude oil at midnight.
Hell, the only reason I know about this show is this AMV: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ni-4PTC4UKE
Owning a figurine of the little girl in the show is a little fuckin weird though

Rurouni Kenshin was hands down the best anime during the peak of Toonami. Its also one of the few anime to exist where it has an English Dub that doesn't sound awful in fact the English dub is probably on point with the likes of Dragonball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Yu-Gi-Oh in terms of great English Retranslation

But the scene that turned Rurouni Kenshin from a great anime to the highest shelf possible type of anime was pic related. I know people hate the word "Kino" but this...the hype was almost fucking legendary

Snob's top ten anime aren't that great, if we go over the list he constructed in his Squeeze videos. Legend of the Galactic Heroes has bad characters and a plot full of nonsense
The Tatami Galaxy is repetitive, it's plot is based on a plot contrivance that stops any sort of development because the characters get amnesia every time it happens.

The setting in Neon Genesis doesn't make any sense (with Misato procuring a giant gun out of nowhere or cloning a half-human half-angel being a thing), it's full of fanservice, and it has too light a mood in the mid episodes.

FMA Brotherhood has pretty bad characters, plot armour, people stopping to cry at every corner, a slow as hell pacing (though not as bad as in LoGH), shock factor (like the time the girl and dog are fused), and a deus ex machine ending (with the little brother being saved an all).

Welcome to the NHK has characters who don't act like humans at all. They are retarded in the same way that the cast of Flowers of Evil is.

Ghost in the Shell is lifeless, has rather bad characters, and too short a run time.

Kaiba wastes half its run time on episodic nonsense, has convenient amnesia, asspuls left and right, a mystery that reveals itself, and an ending and setting that don't make the least bit of sense.

Serial Experiments Lain is the greatest anime of all time, so it's fine.

Area 88 has a pretty bad villain but is otherwise OK.

Haibane Renmei has too much ambiguity at too many points (like the problem of the MC being solved by a raven that comes out of nowhere for some reason that's not specified) and no stakes.
