Do anons like Death Note?
I've been watching the 2006 live action films. It reminded me how much I like the anime and manga.
Do you feel the same or do you think is overrated?
Kara No Kyoukai is significantly better.
It was good until L died.
>the ending was satisfying
I disagree, but I'll do agree that watching Kira got what he finally deserved was satisfying.
Kira should've been busted by L, instead of that faggot that I've already forgot the name of. I also hate how they didn't explain the Shikigami realm at fucking all.
DN is great, a modern sherlock holmes. The endless milking is pathetic and the authors's other works are terrible. I don't like the colored version that much. I remember skipping school just to finish it. I couldn't concentrate at school at all because I was constantly going over the plot in my head. 4k anime later, it's still one of the best. Discussed to death though. Nothing original is left.
You can't quote a single line from your shitty fate rip-off. If you don't want to talk DN and just want to make generalizing statements how X is better than Y go ahead. Fanbase warmongering gets you attention I guess.
I was not trying to warmonger. It has been a while since I last read Death Note and I can well understand its appeal. I get your point about it being similar to Sherlock Holmes though though what fascinated me was more the philosophical and moral questions surrounding re what should be done with that kind of power. Having said this, it just did not resonate with me on a personal level in the same way that other series have. Personally, I would recommend: Case Files of Lord El Melloi, Joker Game, 39 Days, Another, Monster, Gankutsuou and Gantz.
>You can't quote a single line from your shitty fate rip-off
As the novel series predates the Fate/ series, your point is somewhat erroneous. Myself I like the 'case notes/anthology' structure of the series, how the series continued to surprise in each film, the intimate nature of the storytelling as well as the quality of the animation.
My favourite film in the series is Paradox Spiral which is based on an apartment complex that from my recollection was designed in such a way that was designed (through some kind of Reality Marble or equivalent) to deliberately unsettle its residents and drive them to insanity. Said residents being in reality just puppets forced to repeatedly live out their last days in an endless cycle of life and death to fuel the magics of a ruthless magician. As a fan of supernatural mystery, I found this conce
>I have nothing to contribute yet I must open my mouth
You know what I do when I don't know something about a subject? I don't open my mouth.
Wow. You made a surface level observation yet you attributed it to the entire franchise. Make your own thread about your shitty fate rip-off. Again. Either go read Death Note and contribute some novel insight or fuck off.
Does zzz/a/ like 20th century anime adaptations of classic gaijin children's novels?
Is Heidi any good? Looks comfy.
It's so comfy it makes me depressed thinking how nice western Europe used to be before the burgers, mudkikes and orcs took over.
now, I may be looking at it through rose tinted lenses because it aired in the early morning back when I was a wee lad going to preschool and I have fond memories of that period, but I think it's fucking great on par with golden standard stuff like dbz.
Yoichi Kotabe should make more adaptions like that. I see him, and not Miyamoto, as the disney of the east.
They're all terrible. Low budget, audio quality, censored and generally inferior to their source products made by a bunch of hacks that couldn't do anything original. Obviously if you're a 5 year old kid you don't really care. But very boring otherwise.
Where can I download (torrent) all Dragon ball series with German dub?
Dragon Ball is for faggots
Hunter X Hunter is much better.
dragonball is based
hunter hunter is for faggots
Real man's anime coming through.
hard to disagree
sailor mercury is best
I'm bored. Recommend me good animes. I'm looking for over-the-top weird comedy or/and something dark and gruesome.
GTO, Jin Roh
Already watched Jin Roh. It was okay. I will check out GTO.
Go watch Ninja Scroll, Wicked City, Violence Jack and Demon Beast Invasion. You'll thank me later OP.
Post usefull info about anime, like watchorder and stuff like that.
I'm trying to get into Ashita no Joe but there's alot of movies and TV shows, so should I start with movies or the TV shows and are there any filer episode that I can avoid.
Watch the first tv show up untill episode 54, then watch the second one, everything after episode 54 is filler and deviates greatly from the manga, i haven't bothered to watch these episodes so i don't know if they are any good.
I haven't watched the movies either, but as far as I know they are just compilation movies.
SINCE THERE'S NO REAL /m/ ON THE WEBRING plw/mecha/ is dead as fuck, BRING IT ON!
This year is looking bright for mecha.
>Getter Robo Arc
>Eva 3.0 + 1.0
What is your favorite MS in Gundam? and why is it the Zudah?
You forgot to mention Gun x Sword that show is pretty good, the mech design are neat, the character are intressting to follow and the OST is amazing.
When I first watched it I thought it will follow an episodic format, but it turns out that every character that the cast meets are important to the story they looked unimportant for me, and I love the fact that the OP changes each character reveal
>00 Set in our times, it's a series that takes inspiration from the middle-eastern war
I liked the first season, it's a pretty good depiction of international politics.
Until the part when the whole Gundam squad had an all-out battle in space.
Christina's death made me stopped watching it.
Not even Tieria in drag can convince me to continue watching it.
The premise of second season was silly anyway: why would a whole world unite just because they share a common crippled enemy? One of the unions could have destroyed Celestial Being entirely by continuing the offensive right after Exia gets wrecked. Once that's done, the 3 unions can just blow each other's asses again in space.
Any mecha anime with a main cast of cute girls?
Been meaning to watch Overman King Gainer, but should I go through Xabungle first? I think I've heard it's a spiritual successor of sorts to the latter, so I'm wondering if it might be better suited to watch afterward.
Great taste anon.
I thought that Bael jobbing was kind of the point. The idea that it was a trump card was just the childish fantasy of a broken man who couldn't understand others.
Not that I'll defend that show any further, especially the second season. The pacing was the only thing more retarded than the characters.
Cross Ange should fit that description.
Dragon Ball both the original and Z and Pokemon were a big part of my childhood. Watching Dragon Ball reruns and some of the movies was all did at one point, and playing Pokemon Red while watching the anime was really fun. Bulma and Misty were my first faps too. I've have been rewatching the first season of Pokemon and it's pretty comfy. It holds up pretty well. I also used to watch a lot of Heidi and Digimon. I need to re-watch Heidi though since I haven't watched it since I was a kid.
pretty much the same, as well as yu-gi-oh!, lupin the third, captain tsubasa, cardcaptor sakura, kodocha, hamtaro, the rose of versailles, beyblade and whatever other shit they'd have on tv at the time
Transformers armada, with it's attrocious slovak dub, I think so.e pokeymans, but that's it. U mostly watched Shrek or some classic cartoons from my country.
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo was my fucking jam back in the day.
I never watched the anime but i grew up with the gbc game. It's a pretty comfy RPG and i recommend it.
i need to rewatch it. I remember liking it a lot.
I don't think yu gi oh holds that well today, I used to love it as a kid but I rewatched it recently and it was less interesting than I remembered.
>but i grew up with the gbc game. It's a pretty comfy RPG and i recommend it.
patrician taste, the gba games were also top
Do you like Studio Ghibli films, anon?
I've been meaning to watch them. So far I've seen Spirited Away, Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies. My favorite so far is Grave of the Fireflies. How about you anon? Which one is your favorite? Do you think Earwig and the Witch will be any good?
I don't think Ghibli films are meant for adult men, even teenagers, as the imagery is quite dark, and there are a few fights. It's for children.
The best way to describe it is that Ghibli films are the children of Pixar films and Disney films. They're fun, they're adventurous, there are happy endings. They're ideal for kids but then there's something for adults called real life, and that's something very sophisticated. The quality of this so called real life is very high and a mere capitalistic Ghibli movie is, so to speak, a splatter of shit. If you go to Japan, if you buy a ticket to the movie theater, there's a huge queue of children. It's unbelievable, and their parents are so happy to see them there. But if you don't have kids, it's fine.
But of course, you can't compare any two films. One is a cultural masterwork and one is a stupid cartoon. But the Japanese audiences aren't very cynical. They think they're being cynical, but they're not. For us, that is exactly what a real critic would say. So, there are definitely limits in our language. So while I think that the critics of the Ghibli are wrong in their overall praise, I understand that life isn't a race, and Ghibli films are created by adults, but they're just money making machines, no love there.
Mr Hashimoto, who worked at Studio Ghibli for 20 years and said he was deeply saddened by its closure, thinks it is a pity that such a thing has happened.
He said that unlike films like "The Godfather", which were created with only adults in mind, Mr Hayao Miyazaki and his team of animators never forgot the young.
Mr Hashimoto added that at the end of the day, they were just puppeteers - there were so many hands that led to the final product.
Mr Hayao Miyazaki died last year, aged 76, leaving behind a body of work that was lauded in Japan and internationally.
On its Facebook page, Studio Ghibli said that it will "transition to other projects."
If it has not found a new producer to back it, Studio Ghibli is in danger of going out of business.
>Mr Hayao Miyazaki died last year, aged 76
>MC gets super powers and so on, it's generic isekai
>gets a catgirl slave by killing bandits, she's horny, they kiss
>goes out, finds bandits' friends while wearing stolen bandit armor and weapons
<MC acts like a retard, ignores the "I'm going to rape your girl" implication
<gets cockblocked again and now the girl has been kidnapped
>luckily she's with another girl who is going to help her escape by kissing her and distracting the guards
<kissing another girl makes the slave hornier than the MC ever could, ruining the plan, now they're both getting groped and about to be raped
>MC crashes in and saves the day, now they're both literally fighting over who gets his dick first
<MC does nothing despite acting like horny 24/7
>MC gets a third girl, jerks off onto an evil god and turns her into the 4th
>now the four are fighting for the D
<he chooses to remove the power from the goddess to make her as weak as the others(?)
<wastes time and gets cockblocked
I understand the cock blocking and the MC not actually fucking anyone in most stories, the part where all the girls get fucked in all holes by a slime before he has even touched them is what confuses me.
If you want more lewd just have the MC do it and get cockblocked, if you don't want to cross the line why have some nigger do it instead?
How is this different from western genre fiction? Here, you are confronted with an endless variety of cultural projections onto a wide variety of other cultural projections: The Europeans come from cultures where men are expected to marry women; these are powerful cultural norms which reach far beyond the cultures of Europe and the western world. These expectations may make for more sophisticated fiction. You can make a long list of some of western literary masterpieces such as Alexandre Dumas, Emile Zola, Romain Rolland, Countess Maria Sibylle Szilárd and Jorge Luis Borges. While we’re still examining these literary works, the notion of ethnic identity is totally absent. The protagonist of a Greek tragedy is always a Greek man and the protagonist of a French novel is always a French man. Even when the protagonist does not identify as one ethnicity, he is usually an educated middle-class citizen of a Western society.
>How is this different from western genre fiction?
The author doesn't pretend the women aren't shit while cucking the MC. Pic related.
>The author doesn't pretend the women aren't shit while cucking the MC
What the fuck are you talking about?
My response to that would be that while trash, they are still human beings. Just because the author doesn't necessarily like that fact doesn't mean it's the same for everyone. So I read on to see what "she" had to say.
Some people absolutely hate their vaginas. They can't stand the sight of their own body parts. They look at their vaginas with disgust. They have often thought of amputating it. But on the other hand, some women find their vaginas disgusting as well. And their reasons for hating their vaginas are not as different from what men hate their penises for. They are the same reasons.
Now let me go ahead and be clear. I do not agree with her. She does not understand the concept of the connotation that every human penis has. As a male, I do not believe that the mere concept of a penis (or any genitals for that matter) is disgusting. It may look disgusting, but it's not. Human genitals, in fact, are beautiful. In fact, they have been created by God and for a very special purpose. We each have one. Many people, when they first discover this, develop a fascination with the parts, many of which are highly sensitive. Some develop a fetish for them, for reasons ranging from a certain flavor of manhood to sexual healing. And many feel that they are the most masculine of the body parts because they were the first part of the human body to start to develop in our creator's image.
Most people have
I'm watching Haré+Guu and some Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Bretty comfy.
I didn't like the show because it was a bit too relatable for me, except for the MC dumping of "gamer words" I wasn't that pathetic
What shows with the same kind of stroyline you did like?
Well that was the only show that I watched with that kind of storyline, I heard some good thinks about Rent a girlfriend.
I'm watching that too
I've been watching Hunter X hunter even though I'm not a big fan of shoushit. I was expecting it to be a massive borefest that normalfags and nostalgiafags both overhyped, but in the end I'm personally enjoying it so far than I did watching One Piece or Fairy Tail. I've gotten up to Episode 41 and things are looking more promising than the Hunter Exam and Heaven Arena arcs.
