Why there aren't much alternative or even just historical and even less war themed anime or mangos. There are few. I mean nearly everything feels the same in modern animus. Nearly every season there is an isekai trash, yuri anime and some other unintresting trash. 
Why they cannot be a more darker war themed story with a more gritty artstyle? Or maybe an adaptation of a western story like southern victory and stuff like that?

> Why there aren't much alternative or even just historical
Maybe there is.
It’s just like with everything else, anon. Animu and mangos are not some sort of a magical land automatically banishing the stray clowns to Tumblr and Seattle.
So there’s not much of a niche, and what does exist is going to be hard to find. Especially if you want something better than what passes for “history” in Hollywood and/or incoherent “REEEEE!” of some disturbed wiki-ng about his pet wonk point.

> Nearly every season there is an isekai trash, yuri anime and some other unintresting trash. 
Because mainstream shonens for retards, half-assed pr0n and other trash can be churned out by little more than monkeys with typewriters, and there’s always a market for this. Just like with any other medium.
Also, whenever you go looking for good stuff, you have to dodge both the Charybdis of trash piles (where it’s buried forever under vast layers of trashy sediment) and Scylla of the WTF where the hipsters and other basket cases dwell.
The only difference is that with anime most warning signs are visible: the stuff about which the brats babble endlessly and undisguised knockoffs of knockoffs.

When I think of surreal anime and shit like that, I think Sentou Yousei Yukikaze or Serial Experiments Lain, I kinda understand the plot of Yukikaze but for Lain I'm at episode 7 and I still don't undestand get it :^). 
So why I'm watching something that's a bit hard to understand for me well I like the unique that vibe and feeling they give you, the visual the sounds they always try something unique and they give you this surreal feeling, and especially love Lain because the worlds seems familiar but it isn't everything about is awkward, it's feeled with long scenes with just ambient sounds or characters just staring at each other the same goes for Yukikaze. 
I'm not sure how I can explain it but I like these type of anime.

nowadays its rchan.fun
This imagines a futuristic dystopia where everyone was given the power of "redo" - the ability to rewind time and possess their own younger bodies in the past at any time (through magic or technology, doesn't matter).

The world is split between those who refuse to "redo", those who are addicted to "redoing", and those who try to "redo" only under the correct circumstances.

Imagine a world where at any time you or someone you know could be possessed by a version of themselves from some future you will never get to actually experience, people behave erratically as they undergo extreme shifts in personality and behavior seemingly at random, the series would focus on the effects this kind of thing would have upon the greater society.

For one thing, history has been completely lost, nobody even knows what year it is, as people have been "redoing" since forever.

The widespread power of "redo" is shown both positively and negatively, it acknowledges the good and bad of this world, some stories are heartwarmingly wholesome, others are grim scenarios for anyone who knows the truth, etc.

"Redo" is explored as a concept, not just for practical consequences but also psychological effects on people and the greater philosophical crisis that occurs in a world where one's mistakes could always simply be undone.

The story would follow five people whose stories intersect the central character being a thoughtful introspective sort or adamantly refuses to ever "redo" as he seek

Hello, yes, I am here for the manga?

This manga is Kumo Desu Ga, Nani Ka? It is about a spider.

Is there more manga?
I'm still steamed about how Kumo Desu Ga turned out. Complete wasted potential at almost every turn.

>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.

She says:

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

Anime related of course.
Recently I came upon this dub of Ghost Stories. It's pretty great. Are there any more anime dubs similar to this? The only other one that comes to mind is Bible Black.

To be a GOAT anime, it has to capture the distilled essence of what anime can be. My kneejerk reaction would be to say Akira, but the cyberpunk setting is too limiting. It definitely has the best animation, though.

Maybe… FLCL? I can’t think of anything else that really nails that immutably ‘japanese’ feel that it does. It’s not the BEST anime, but it’s the most ‘anime’ anime.
Replies: >>986
Just because it captures some Japanese weirdness doesn't mean its the best, quality is important too
Try to think of an anime with the criteria you're describing, but also fucking outstanding if possible
Replies: >>988
Where does FLCL genuinely falter? In regards to art and animation, it’s stood up very well. It’s OVA-quality, the handful of CG scenes are cel shaded and practically indistinguishable from the traditional animation. 
Like I said, it’s not Akira or GOTS-tier, but it’s better than practically everything of its era that wasn’t out of Ghibli.
