Recently started watching pokemon indigo league and I haven't watched it in at least 2 decades now. I don't believe I've seen the whole thing unfortunately, my parents always rented it on vhs but at least I got to see the first couple movies. Maybe some of it is nostalgia, but I love this anime and think it's the best anime I've ever seen and Misty is the reason I'm into red heads 9/10.

I've also recently played Wildfrost and can say while it can be fun, it's mostly just a frustrating mess. If you don't have the cards to compliment each other, you're basically screwed and the forced diversity in the game really drags the game down to me 5/10

You can choose characters but the characters are all randomized and sometimes almost all black. It's so bad they wouldn't even allow us to choose what are character looks like. I mean, don't get me wrong RNG is supposed to be a part of the experience but they weaponized it here when they could have let us just choose what our character looks like. Not to mention all the shop characters are diverse

Here's your (You), I guess.
Even a large portion of Japanese games are pozzed these days.
Anime is still going relatively strong though, of course, since it's more of a niche thing and a very large portion of fans are still Japanese, unlike video games, which have a very wide appeal and are targeted at westerners.

The Dungeon Meshi anime has so far been absolutely faithful to the manga and the fact you're crying about whether it counts as anime or not just shows how little you really care and how much you just want to rage about stupid shit for any reason you can find.
No I do not have a netflix account his shit is easily pirated on anime torrent sites.

I recently binged the first 3 cours of Mushoku Tensei because of FOMO and wanting to watch the new cour as it's being aired.
To be honest, this was my only anime I consistently watched at 2x speed. I guess I just don't have interest in fantasy/isekai settings, and there was also a lot of distasteful sexual slop... Mind you, I love normal fanservice (panty shots, girl showering, etc), and I also like sex scenes in VNs (loving sex between the MC and a heroine), but Mushoku Tensei was just filled with cringe and degenerate Shitflix-tier garbage.
Although I like Japanese high school SoL anime, I'm not finding the Harry Potter magic school arc too interesting either, because aside from it still being fantasy, it focuses a lot on the life of MALES, which is gay and unappealing.
One thing I appreciated was Shirufi, though. She's a sweet character and her appearance has boyish elements but is elegant and feminine (this is what tomboyslop wishes it was). Though despite how much cringe sexual garbage this show had, they decided to cut out specifically the MC having sex with her, which is just frustrating.
But yeah, I guess this is not an anime for me, but I'm watching it because of sunk cost and not wanting to feel left out.

It's a TV anime, they can't broadcast sex as such.
I'm guessing you were also frustrated with not seeing Eris take Rudeus virginity?

There's a lot of source material to adapt, considering that it depicts his life all the way until Rudeus is an old man.

Basically all sex scenes that didn't involve the MC. The most annoying example being that whore.
>It's a TV anime, they can't broadcast sex as such.
But they did broadcast unnecessary sex scenes, though. Is there some regulation on how you can't broadcast sex ONLY if it's very relevant to the story and has emotional weight?
>I'm guessing you were also frustrated with not seeing Eris take Rudeus virginity?
Not as much, because I wasn't rooting for Eris as much.
>There's a lot of source material to adapt, considering that it depicts his life all the way until Rudeus is an old man.
Since I already caught up, watching one episode a week for some weeks with several month hiatuses in between doesn't feel as much of a burden as "binging".

Currently playing Pseudoregalia. It's a 3d castlevania type game with fun platforming. The movement in the game is superb. As you go along in the game, you learn new abilities that allow you to have more health, parkour moves, and battle moves. But you have to find the locations in question to unlock them. I'm also playing Flipwitch. It's a 2d platformer where you can use your witch powers to flip between male and female (which is required for platform puzzles). It also has a gacha (with different ones having different content scattered across the map) where you use tokens you find while exploring to unlock hentai scenes

Should've asked and posted about this earlier, but what anime are you watching this season? Here are the ones I'm watching, sorted from favorite to just OK.
One Room, Hiatari Futsuu, Tenshi-tsuki -- MASTERPIECE. Though it filters westoids obsessed with contrived novelties who cannot appreciate objective moe because it's not "original" enough.
Sasayaku You ni Koi wo Utau -- Yuri. I guess the two main girls are cute.
Seiyuu Radio no Uraomote -- It's supposed to be "relevant" and have soycial commentary about the entertainment industry or something, but that doesn't ruin it too much, fortunately. I like the MC.
Himitsu no Aipri -- Never really watched kid-aimed stuff before. The girls are cute and there's some pseudo-yuri subtext, I guess. Maybe one could say it's like mahou shoujo but with battle filler replaced by idol stuff.
Hibike Euphonium 3 -- Pretty good series.
Shuumatsu Train Doko he Iku -- Pretty crazy stuff. Though I can imagine jewtubers making pretentious videos about its "symbolism" or something. I like Akira.
Date a Live 5 -- Date a Live is good stuff. Though this season is not as harem-y and it's more action-y and "serious" so to speak.
Hananoi-kun to Koi no Yamai -- Never watched shoujo before. I kind of like it, but I don't think that I'd be too interested in watching other shoujo stuff. Also I find it funny how westoids complain about it promoting "toxic relationships" or something (which is the reason why I started watching it anyway).
Jiisan Baasan Wakagaeru -- Kind of funny, I guess.
Yuru Camp 3 -- This series in general tries to be slow and "comfy", but to be honest that ends up making it a bit boring for me. But it's not bad. I also don't particularly mind the art change on this new season.
Henjin no Salad Bowl -- Focuses too much on adult characters which is a bit boring.
Reddit Tensei 4 -- This is probably the last season I'm watching. Not all that interested in this series.
Here are opinions about things I'm not watching:
Wolf remake -- Never watched the original, dropped this after 1 episode after hearing online that it's NTR. Not that I particularly had a lot of interest in the concept and setting anyway.
Jellyfish anime -- Feminist bullshit. Also has soycial media and TikTok as important plot points, and a character obsessed with WESTOID CAPESHIT (WTF, WHY??).
Redditsuba 3 -- I was curious about this and had never watched the other two seasons, so I tried to binge them, but I barely got through the first one. I didn't find it funny at all and the girls don't appeal to me. I couldn't finish watching the first episode of the second season. Also half of the screenshots I saw of this new season are just the MC making retarded faces which is not funny or appealing to me at all because I'm neither a tiktoddler nor gay.

Thanks to that stupid arsonist, there has been too long of a gap between s2 and 3, and a movie (or movies) as well, so I don't quite know what's going on anymore.
All of the cooler senpais have graduated, and MC is now shouldering the role as club leader, all by herself and her friend, and the inevitable graduation is visible in the horizon.
>Yuru Camp 3
>I also don't particularly mind the art change on this new season.
The series was picked up by a different studio. Other than that, change for the sake of change without much reason isn't great; consistency would be better. "It's closer to the mangas artstyle" seems like a cope.
Nerfing Inuyamas rack is a sin in any case.
>Mushoku Tensei 4
The Teleportation Maze arc is quite something. Also, Roxy makes her comeback, but you probably don't care for that since you prefer Sylphy anyway.
>>201161
>I could consider watching a following season if it put some focus on their child (if it's going to be female).
Their first child will be a daughter. She should get some screen time, but probably not this season.

Yes, I know that you mean Japanese. I just think that moonspeak/moonrunes/etc are dumb expressions because they imply that Japanese is some sort of impossible alien language when it is in fact spoken by nearly everyone in a country with over 100 million people, and with a literacy rate of 99%. In fact, the notion that Japanese is inherently hard is one of the main reasons why most people "learning" it fail at it.

Just watched Tokyo Ghoul. First couple seasons were good, the last seasons were meh and the ending was a clusterfuck. The ending to season 2 was basically perfect, it honestly almost should have ended there even though it would have been a cliffhanger. The lack of character development for the mc after season 2 was definitely a huge disappointment.

Watched all of Monster in a week or so. Easily one of my all-time favorites. If I ever stop being lazy, I think it would be funny to make a poster of Lunge with the word "Bastard" stylized like the Monster logo.

Also watched SPY × FAMILY 2 and that was pretty good. About half the season is one story instead of being episodic.

It's inaccurate to call it "normalfag" stuff but from what I know it's not very "anime" which is also why it is shilled a lot as one of the best anime that even non-anime fans can enjoy etc. In fact, most anime shilled as the best anime are "unique" and "subvert tropes" in some way or another, which says a lot about whether the people recommending or enjoying those things really like anime as it truly is or not.

I watched the first half of Gantz. It was pretty great. The alien designs are really funny. Maybe a 6 or 7, will have to see when I finish it.

I wanted to like Dorohedoro, but it has more CGI than 2D and it seems to be style masquerading as substance (which would be perfectly fine if the animation weren't soaked in CGI almost every scene). 3.

Uncle from Another World was okay as far as isekaislop goes. I like how the uncle is an oblivious wizard kind of guy and also obsessed with old SEGA merchandise. 6.

I finally watched some of the big isekaislop stuff after Uncle and they're pretty bland. Would give stuff like KonoSuba and Overlord a 3 or so. Re:Zero DX was slightly better than those two.

I started Redo of Healer, but it's a bit too pornographic for me I think.

Dungeon Meshi is OK, much better than I expected. It's not done, but maybe 6 or 7. Read ahead in the manga and it's kept me entertained so far.

Toradora was mediocre. All plot development revolves around the kids being too awkward with each other. I felt a little bad for the female lead after her dad is shown to be a severely neglectful piece of shit, but many of her scenes made me want to give her two black eyes afterward since she's a massive bitch. Also had a very predictable "twist" and a mildly surprising outcome to the DDLG-flavored shit that had been festering throughout the show. 5 seems fair.

Guilty pleasure revenge porn in a similar vein as Tate no Yuusha, but without the isekai, and a lower budget.
You can just skip the sex scenes.
>Dungeon Meshi is OK, much better than I expected.
Surprising for being a Netflix production.
It's one of those cases where you really have to give it a chance.
I thought it was the driest and most boring concept ever, and thus never touched the manga, and only really started watching it because people wouldn't shut up about it, and the winter 2024 season didn't have a whole lot else to it for me.
But after the living armor episode, i was hooked.

It's not really a response to what you said, but i did miss the "video game" part in the thread title.

I recommend looking at romhacks. Some of them can stand shoulder to shoulder with the sort of stuff that gets released today, if not with the original games.

>rising of the shield hero
Seriously though, why don't you guys use the English name of weeb stuff when discussing in an English environment?
I recently reread the manga after reading and hating it years ago. Still hate it. Since you've mentioned it I'll take the chance to rant/review.
It really does not know what it wants to do and heavily relies on the nips' victim complex/self loathing.
So MC gets summoned with other heros, no one gathered wants to join him on merry adventure (oh noes how sad, are you relating yet readers???), some chick who picked another hero decides to pity swap, chick steals initial gear, hands it over to first pick, and sets frames MC for rape (readers may now begin pity party preparations!!!). Of course chick is princess and no one even knows what investigation means so everyone in country hateshateshates MC (oh noes!), but some of these mooks are alright (hehe, do you liek my supporting cast, readers?). MC, being unable to offensively use his shield, buys the weakest slave he can find to fight for him so he can continue the whole "saving the world that hates him" nonsense. Said slave ages with level ups because author can't decide if he's into loli or not (MC: She is daughteru. Slave: My life's purpose is to birth that idiot's children).
So there's, like, 20 or so chapters of this arc. Then Queen (I'm a supporting character so I'm good!) shows up and it turns out the country is a matriarchy and was busy preventing wars(See!!! I'm nice!!!)...in a world under active threat of otherworldly destruction. So busy that she allowed the king and princess (antagonists) to fuck shit up and even permitted the spread and growth of a religion which is actively hostile to the existence of one of the four prophesied heros (common knowledge that all four are required to save.the.fucking.world.). So yeah, bitch is completely and utterly inept (but she's nice :DDDD). Anyways the whole rape thing is cleared up and the king and princess get their just desserts, which is to change their names to Trash and Bitch respectively. At this point readers should understand they'll get no payout for all the trash they've put up with.
Onto the next arc. Because I evidently do not know how to properly spend my time. Queenie (I'm friend!) decides all the heros need to go to some adventurer resort island where it's super easy to grind. (Why weren't these cunts sent there 30 chapters ago?) MC meets nice adventurers (Supporting characters!!!) while the other three heros (antagonists) are dumbdumbdumb. Then otherworld monsters invade and other heros are too stupid to do shit and the whole world never once considered humans would need boats to fight in the fucking ocean until the great genius MC opened his mouth. But wait! Nice Adventurers are actually with the monsters!!! Whaaaat?!? Then the day is saved and Nice Adventurers flee the scene. There's also a subplot of gaining a new party member who wants nothing more than to be one of the other heros' cocksleeve 24/7 (I'm tired too).
New arc! A great turtle guardian beast (whose job is to kill people and use the gained energy to slow the opening of the other world. I'm not shitting you, fr fr no cap in zoomerspeak) is wrecking havoc (uhh why just now given its job?). Other heros need to prove they're independent heros who don't need no queen and set off to stop it (look readers, our antagonists are sooo useless!) Only MC can mop up this shit! But wait, Nice Adventurers are disguised inside the turtle??? Turns out a Meanie Hero from their world (antagonist) is a super smart inventor and found a way to turn the turtle's power into his own. Nice Adventurers are there to stop him! Because targeting this world's guardian beasts crosses a line somehow (Reminder: their goal is the literal destruction of this world). MC and Nice Adventurers team up to stop Meanie Hero, but he escapes (oh noes)!
Arc five: We Herd U Liek Isekai. MC uses some bullshit plot nonsense I can't recall and travels to the opposing world. Party gets split, Slave teams up with Nice Adventurers and becomes a different type of hero (some author asspull I don't understand), party reunites, maybe we don't have to destroy the other world as tradition states (Friends now! Wow!), kills Meanie Hero, return to first isekai world.
Next arc. Please make it end. So, you remember how everyone hated MC? Yeah, they still do, seems tech is just too poor to spread word quickly (Somehow this wasn't true when the world wanted to badmouth the loser). What about the other three heros, any progress or headway there? No, they're still retarded stupid antagonists the author seems reluctant to part with who are currently AWOL. Again. Party status? MC still daughteruing, Slave still lusting, bird is bird, annnd the carry on is still simping for the other hero. Given all this you must be curious as to how the author plans to advance the plot, my hopes aren't high. The answer is, and please read this in slow retard drawl: MC: "I want to make a slave beastman village. They'll be my army." AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH So MC takes over ownership of the land Slave's old village stood on and sets to work buying the surviving children. But wait, they're super duper expensive since MC's slave did so well!!! (Word spreading pretty fast now) So MC goes to the country that literally worships his ass (earlier in this arc some of them offered themselves as his sexslaves and MC was all like "no way fag") to disguise his identity and fight in an underground arena for slave purchasing fundraising. Along the say MC gets a new party member(?) who thirsts for the loser as much as Slave does. Yay, more shouen celibate tier MC fuckery. This, thankfully, marks the end of currently translated content. I have written a personal note to ensure I never touch this trash again.
As I started with, this shit has no idea what it wants to do. Sadly common in episodic and crowdfunded works. I'm of the opinion that the author got lucky with early popularity and is being aimless to keep milking the thing for all its worth, then again I have no idea how popular the LN was or even if it was finished before the manga/anime began production. This is trash on an even lower level than Redo of Healer, I hate it, I hate myself for giving it so much of my time, and its existence in general makes me think less of the nips as a people & weebs. Never thought I'd type up over 6,000 characters of pure bitching.

Well if you're going to be like that:
In the case of Redo of Healer, that's kind of why I said "Not really"; sometimes you can tell (kissing, foreplay, clothes being removed, characters literally saying "Let's have sex" or something similar), but there's atleast one case of it just straight ahead skipping to sex (in the episode where the ice wolf girl gets introduced iirc)

Because Japan and its culture are vastly different (in many or most aspects superior) from the westoid globohomo abrahamic mutt "culture". Do you also watch dubs and think it's fine when they translate things like onigiri (rice balls) to "jelly-filled doughnuts" (like it happened in Pokemon)?
Of course, not everyone is dedicated enough to otaku culture to learn Japanese (although it's an easier task than ((( they ))) mislead you to believe), but we at least try to keep some iconic or hard-to-translate words or phrases (including media titles) as they are without making it hard to understand for English-only bros.

I don't know, I haven't really watched many isekai. The only thing I can say is that the usual medieval/fantasy setting is personally not too appealing to me, and most isekai are based upon it, which is why I don't have much interest. So I can't really judge it at a more objective level. People like to complain a lot about isekai and make it as a sort of boogeyman, so that could theoretically be a sign that it's bad, but a lot of people also complain about moe-focused shows and battle shounen (it doesn't appeal to me either, but I don't think it's inherently bad), so I don't think that that can be used as a good measure.
Though if there is one thing that I can say, it's that most isekai series have their roots in light novels, which I think is a soulless and low quality medium that can even be compared to gacha "games" (as in being never-ending cash grabs for dumb teenagers), but there are some anime based on light novels that I enjoyed, so I don't know.

Watched Mind Game. Not much substance to the story, basically just a bunch of cool animated sequences set to various soundtracks. I guess there were a couple funny parts, too (like when the protagonist dies by being shot in his asshole point-blank andthe bullet exits out his forehead, and then god makes fun of him in the afterlife). 6.

Not really a review. Started Pluto. Liked the first episode, with the blind old composer and the robot with war trauma. Not sure if Abdullah deliberately looks very similar to Roberto from Monster, but it's a possibility since they were made by the same guy.

I will get around to finishing it, but some things were a little too on the nose. They make a point about how the invasion of Persia was predicated on lies regarding WMDs and the anti-robot faction wears hooded, white robes with one of their most prominent members being named Adolf.

Visually appealing movie, but nothing interesting happens (I realize it's an adaptation of a very old and longer work). 5/10.

Looking forward to it, though I might wait for it to complete airing. It's nicer to binge anime all at once.

Actually had Crybaby downloaded too, lol. Only seen the first episode. If I just want to see what happens after the equivalent part in Apocalypse, can I just watch the last one or two episodes and dodge the AIDS? I actually watched Violence Jack OVAs a long time ago and didn't know it was a spinoff of Devilman. Those were pretty fun to watch.

Think I'm about 10 episodes deep into both Galaxy Express and Ranma ½ right now. Both are decent, like Express a little more so far.

I like both gory and cute anime. Good gore is much harder to come by, though. Genocyber is probably the best. I didn't enjoy seeing kids die in that, but I appreciate the talent it takes to animate explicit violence in so much detail. And I mean, seeing a demon get her tits twisted off is pretty funny.
Replies: >>204850

My main problem is not that it's gory, but that it pushes a soulless and negative anti-life philosophy. There is gory media that is more neutral in those aspects despite the dark atmosphere, and in some cases like Higurashi they can even ultimately have a hopeful message.

I just finished reading Atri My Dear Moments, a short nakigē (=emotional VN) about romancing a dying robot girl in a largely flooded world, which is getting an anime adaptation this Summer.
Overall I enjoyed this VN. The normal end (starting from that rooftop fight scene until the rocket launch) was the best and most soulful section of the VN and it's where I cried a few times. The reveal around the middle brutally depicting her not having a mind or feelings was disheartening, but spoilers came to save me and gave me the will to keep on reading and my expectations were met. To be honest I did feel like the anti-reveal of her having a mind/feelings/consciousness after all came a bit too late and thus was quite abrupt, but of course, it was much better than if it didn't happen. Though it does indeed not happen in the bad/alternative end, which was just depressing and that's it.
Something controversial about this VN is the "True End". It did make me feel conflicted too. Cheating aside, I personally don't really like epilogues where the characters are shown as old people in general, but with all the technological advancements it even felt kind of creepy and bizarre... particularly the part where the MC uploads his consciousness into the "singularity" to spend time with Atri. And the reunion itself felt a bit cheap, to be honest, and didn't make me as happy as it should have. The story probably would've been better off concluding with the normal end.
Anyway, the art looked very pretty, though I felt like there could be more CGs. In terms of music there were many soulful tracks, my favorite being the main theme song along with the vocal version, though some tracks felt a bit like "cinematic" slop.
To conclude, I would recommend it if you'd like a short nakigē, though don't expect it to be "deep" slop full of contrived novelties or whatever (despite the infamous Philosopher-Artist Scat-Ji's involvement). Also, I'm looking forward to the anime adaptation (hopefully they remove or replace the True End, but probably not happening), and I guess you can watch it too instead of the VN if that sounds interesting but you're too much of a lazy nigger for a 10 hour VN.
---
For people learning Japanese who might be interested in reading it, the VN has dual-language options, but I don't think it's helpful for improving your Japanese (it's like watching EN-subbed anime) and I really don't recommend it unless you activate it only for lines that you have a harder time understanding but may be important. I'd rather recommend just reading it with a text hooker and dictionary. In fact, the language used is not particularly hard, most of the difficulty comes form technical terms and alternative kanji writings, which is highly solvable via text hooker + dictionary.

It's the exact same game as the first one, just different levels and different characters and some things are nerfed like storm's main lighting attack can't be upgraded to jump from enemy to enemy anymore (which was overpowered to be fair). If you want an all female team your only choice is rouge, storm, jean and some random witch I don't know because she wasn't in the movies. The magnetic jew and his brotherhood of retards are all playable characters I guess that was the main selling point of the game. I don't know what the story was about because I skipped all that shit.

Pretty big-amygdala, but Tenshi-tsuki overall had cuter/girlier/colorful-er girls, aesthetics, and activities. Yuru Camp felt a bit dull in comparison. Though according to some Japanese survey the fanbase is mostly composed of middle-age boomers so it's understandable.

The first episode of "Giji Harem" just aired. It's basically about a girl acting out various characters to create a pseudo-harem for the MC. And the girl is extremely cute, she gave me amygdala-orgasms.

Just watch whatever you like and drop it if you see any hint of something you don't like.
Maybe Sora no Woto could count as an anti-war propaganda piece. The world has been at war for decades, if not a good century or so, most of the Eurasian continent has undergone desertification, lost technology is a thing, and the two main warring factions consist of a Franco-Japanese country and "The Roman Empire" (brown people that speak german).

Based on imageboard culture and trends, here are the most referenced anime from your list:

    Love Live! - Extremely popular and widely referenced, especially among anime fans and idol enthusiasts.
    Yuuki Yuuna Wa Yuusha De Aru - Has a dedicated fanbase and is often referenced for its unique blend of magical girls and psychological themes.
    Kemono Friends - Was a massive meme in 2017-2018, with its cute and quirky characters being shared and referenced extensively.
    Hyouka - Has a strong following among anime fans and is often referenced for its mystery and slice-of-life elements.
    Girls und Panzer - Has a dedicated fanbase and is often referenced for its unique blend of moe and tank battles.
    Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha - A classic magical girl series with a strong following, often referenced for its action and character development.
    Yahari Ore no Seishun Lovecome wa Machigatte Iru. (Oregairu) - Has a dedicated fanbase and is often referenced for its relatable characters and witty dialogue.
    Seitokai Yakuindomo - A popular comedy anime with a strong following, often referenced for its humor and satire.

As for anime that might be best avoided due to NTR (Netorare, or "cuckolding" themes), propaganda, or other controversial elements, here are a few examples from your list:

    Citrus - Contains explicit yuri (girl-on-girl) content and NTR themes, which might be off-putting to some viewers.
    Kuzu no Honkai (Scum's Wish) - Deals with mature themes like NTR, infidelity, and toxic relationships, which might be uncomfortable for some viewers.
    Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru - Has NTR themes and might be off-putting to viewers who dislike love triangles or cheating.
    High School DxD - Contains ecchi content, fanservice, and some NTR themes, which might not appeal to all viewers.
    Rosario to Vampire - Has some ecchi content and fanservice, which might not be to everyone's taste.

Keep in mind that individual tolerance for certain themes or content can vary greatly. It's essential to research and understand the content of an anime before watching it, especially if you're sensitive to specific topics.

Not done with Spice and Wolf yet, but I was thinking about the scene *after Holo confronts the giant alpha wolf in her human form and I assumed she got knotted to avoid a battle and that's why she didn't want Lawrence to know.

I tried watching an anime ACTUALLY aimed at little girls for the first time (this one currently airing) and at first I thought that it was pretty cute and I liked it, but I don't think that I have profound enough autism to keep going. I love cute 2D girls and CGDCT-like anime even more than the next guy, but there's just something that feels different when it's aimed at men and when it's aimed at little girls, fanservice being the tip of the iceberg. (Might look like a nitpick, but speaking of fanservice, they didn't even do as much as having visible navels on girls with exposed tummies (unless I'm a complete retard in anatomy))
In fact, I realized that it would make sense if men who watch little girl-aimed anime probably have a great overlap with those mentally ill "/a/ oldfag" borderline-tranny Onimai fan types who LARP as little girls and unironically fap to homo/pederast garbage like Boku no Pico (in fact, I even once saw someone adjacent to this using a reaction picture specifically from this show).

I watched "Charlotte", a Key anime.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience. However, I felt like it was crippled by being 1 cour long. Angel Beats and the VN adaptations managed to have some emotional impact because they spent most of their short length on the characters, but Charlotte tried to balance that aspect with a more "actual" plot, but that ended up making both of those a bit lacking... though still decent enough.
I already kind of feel like rewatching it, but I guess I may read the manga adaptation (allegedly 99% the same as the anime, like manga adaptations of anime tend to be) one day if I manage to find it online.
Also, Tomori Nao (the main female character) looks very pretty.

I watched "Konohana Kitan", a SoL show set in fantasy Japan.
For the easily bored bros, it actually wasn't pure "nothing happens" SoL and there were episodic subplots, some of which being a bit sad or dark, which I wasn't expecting.
I think that to me the most memorable thing about it were its visuals and aesthetics. The environments and main characters were pretty, and there were many beautiful and amygdala-stimulating shots (though unfortunately there were some ugly/creepy minor characters and shots too).
It has a bit of yuri (not the main focus), which is an aspect I liked and found cute, but I guess some anons wouldn't like that so just a quick heads up.

A month ago, I found myself watching Mahoromatic, having completely missed it in the 2000s.
The first season uses cel-animation, and has a nice tension and release going through the cour, though it gets weird at the end. Had it just been that, it would've been a fine anime.
But then there's the second season, which uses computer animation, thus losing what soul it had. Over six episodes of filler with no real plot, and then an onslaught of Gainax wtf plot, with an ending that can be interpreted as a negative one, though it probably isn't supposed to be, since the manga ended on such a positive note.

Kawasumi Ayako voices Mahoro; you can't really tell that it's her if you've heard her voice Saber before. Shows that she has some vocal range, i guess.
Meanwhile, the antagonist of the first season is voiced by Takehito Koyasu, and you can hear that trademark Dio voice from a mile away.
Amusingly, Nobutoshi Canna voices his adult version in the end, who wields a large sword and spends his days killing androids.

Sabagebu is pretty good. It's a comedy anime split into sub-episode segments, and it does a good job at being funny. Its main gimmick is stylizing fairly normal things as bloody and deadly (most notably airsoft gun usage as real gun usage). Most characters were pretty funny and likeable. It also managed to have randomness and 4th wall breaking without being too cringe (unlike some other anime or art in general).
It kind of left me wanting more. I could read the manga one day, but bizarrely enough it was serialized in a SHOUJO magazine, and from my research it seems that the manga is indeed more shoujo-like while the anime adaptation had several changes to make it more familiar to usual male audiences.
