animu thread Anon 05/02/2020 (Sat) 17:11:35 No.640
Post here whenever you finished watching an anime. I'm very new to it so I don't think I could fit on /animu/, less /a/, so I figured I may make a thread here. Watched pic related recently, it was very neat but I didn't like the ending a lot, seems like the rewards Chihiro got were too given at the palm of her hand there. Other than that it was pretty neat and reminded me to care about your friends.

Starting to watch NGE, would like to find subs in spanish since it translates better from japanese to that than english, but I couldn't find any. Guess we'll just deal with the hand that is given. I think Shinji is a bit of an assclown, and I always laugh when he suffers in one way or the other. Misato seemed nice at first but she ends up becoming a "pump and dump" woman by the 2nd chapter. Also I wish I didn't see the first episode in 144p tier quality, I kinda ruined that. Let's see how it develops later

Watching Ushio to Tora, I like Tora's character design, his looks reminds of Katt from Breath of Fire II still havent finished it and the banter is funny.
>>669 Furshit is not comfy and you will burn in hell.
I've just finished Samurai Champloo and Space Dandy, I need to get on Cowboy Bebop now. I've absolutely loved Champloo but thought the latter was meh. Champloo has an honestly solid story and world, while Dandy feels... random, at worst, and poorly executed at best. The various animation styles are what made me stay, it looks stunning.
>>769 Those characters are youkai >>770 If you looking for show like bepop/champloo give Black Lagoon a try
>>668 Are these Italians? Why are they all weebs?
>>770 I'm the opposite, I've watched Bebop and now I need to get on Champloo. I don't think it will be as good as Cowboy Bebop though, honestly.

k then i just finished 2nd season of MP100, gotta admit it's been a while since i've seen such clean dynamic animations, definitely a very refreshing watch. Anyway anons what should i watch next, pick 1 from these that are on my list: Nichijou, Texhnolyze, Gurren Lagann or Darker than Black (i'm leaning towards GL, i feel embarassed for not having watched it already)
Open file (16.64 MB 1920x1080 ttgl.mp4)
>>828 Definitely watch Gurren Lagann. Along with Monogatari, it is the single most important anime I ever watched, it changed my life.
I'm currently about to finish my first run of K-On. I'm on season 2.
>>783 I've been getting a HUUUUGE urge to re-watch Bebop! But ahg, there's just too much anime to watch!

just watched ElfenLied. Idk, kinda disappointed, right at the beginning the actions of the characters are unbelievably retarded, so much so that it is almost ridiculous. The gore really bored me. the novelty faded away quickly. The ending was good though. A reason to not give the 5/10. Think it's a 7/10 after all don't really know what to think. I still don't understand why it is considered a 'masterpiece' by so many...
>>784 cringe
I finished Domestic na Kanojo recently. It was one of the most enjoyable romantic animes I've seen recently because it isn't the usual harem shit and the characters and their motivation is well build. However, I'm well aware that the ending was not in the like of everyone, let alone the general theme of the anime, so no second season at all, which is a shame. The opening is also top notch.
Watched Beastars. Was expecting Zootopia 2.0 furshit hell, but it's surprisingly comfy and different enough from zootopia despite dealing with the same kind of society. Opening is 10/10, I fucking hate the rabbit, though.
I started watching this obscure anime called from way back in 2002 called Haibane Renmei. I don't really know it is about and I try not to spoil it for myself, but I picked it based on the vibe that the screenshots give off, and I wasn't disappointed, it's exactly what I expected so far (2 episodes in). The anime is just so comfy that it makes me cry, and I'm not exaggerating, it feels like experiencing childhood again, and maybe even one that I never had.
>>1046 Hane haeterun? >it feels like experiencing childhood again, and maybe even one that I never had I won't spoil anything for you. The first time you watch Haibane Renmei is very special. I watched it more than a decade ago and it healed me in a very particular way. It's a small, rough, beautiful jewel. A few years ago I spotted Yoshitoshi ABe in person, introduced myself, and thanked him for being its creative force. He seemed surprised that it was still remembered. Watch it all, hold on as it goes past, and drink what it has for you.
>>1053 >Yoshitoshi ABe Wow, where did you meet him? >Watch it all, hold on as it goes past, and drink what it has for you. Ok, thanks.
>>1046 >>1053 This is the second time I've seen this anime mentioned over the span of a week. I'd never heard of it before. Guess I'd better get cracking.

>>1077 This was such a heavy anime! I cried in almost every episode and wished I could just reach out and give the characters a hug. I thought I had seen everything by now, but I didn't know treasures like this still exist. I also realized half-way that the music is made by Kou Otani the guy who made the OST for Shadow of the Colossus, and some stylistic choices are also reminescent of that masterpiece, so that was also a very pleasant surprise.

>>1053 I remember the first time I watched it. The art style was really appealing and after the scene in the first episode where Rakka grows her wings, I suspected I was in for a wild ride. I wasn't disappointed, and I watched the whole thing in one sitting. Even after seeing it for a third time a while ago, the ending still gives me the feels. The series has really amazing writing too. I am impressed by how real and developed Rakka and Rekki's stories are, all while still being packed full of Konaka's conceptual exploration of redemption and forgiveness. I feel like this is one of the high marks of quality that many works fail to meet, and I don't think I've ever seen something that has executed this so seamlessly. Abe gets well deserved credit for the art, but the series definitely would not be the same without Chiaki Konaka. In a lot of ways, I'd say the series is more deserving of praise than lain. Sure it's not nearly as out there, but I think the art and story are as good or better. The fact that it's not some avant-garde piece is not a detriment really. Honestly, I think it may be the best series from the Abe, Konaka, and Ueda triangle. Texhnolyze would be my other pick, but it is an entirely different can of worms. Interestingly, Texhnolyze is simultaneously very similar and very different from Haibane Renmei. I could elaborate, but I urge you to watch the series and compare them yourselves. Note that Texhnolyze is considerably less light and pleasant, so be prepared. Now I'm just waiting for Despera to be released. I doubt there is any news, but here's to hoping.
>>1105 >In a lot of ways, I'd say the series is more deserving of praise than lain. Sure it's not nearly as out there, but I think the art and story are as good or better. I don't have much to add to what you say here except to echo it. >Texhnolyze Ohohoho. I tried this. I was intrigued but at the time I didn't have the spare energy and time to put the work in that Texhnolyze wanted out of me.
>>1107 Many have mentioned pacing is an issue, and I initially did give it a pass for that reason. The first two or three episodes are excruciatingly slow, but it just keeps picking up after that. It is a bit rough around the edges in other respects too, but the writing and art are very good, and I wouldn't say it suffers too much from its one or two loose ends. Like Haibane, I found that the series ends with a certain sense of catharsis regarding its darker subject matter. I found this very explicit in Haibane, but Texhnolyze does require the viewer to work more to find it. This, however, makes sense when you consider that both series' are mirror images of each other. Haibane is a mottled black spot on a white wing; Texhnolyze is a tiny glimmer of light in the darkness.

It has too much Shogi

Is there someone here, who watch seasonal stuff? Eberryone I know say that the current season isn't that good but there are some anime what I really enjoy so far. For example Kaguya, but I love the manga too so I'm pretty biased. But Nami yo Kiitekure and Yesterday wo Utatte are also really good, or for instance Kakushigoto is berry comfy as well. To be honest, I can watch almost eberrything, maybe my taste is just bad. But if we only can talk about finished anime, I recently watched all episodes of Legend of the Galactic Heroes, and that was undoubtedly one of the best pieces of any media what I ever watched. Not exactly because of the story, but because of the characters. It's a shame that I didn't watched it because it's just so long and I don't have much free time, but if someone interested about it, I definitely wood recommend.
>>1220 watched it what a ride gave me some feels I haven't felt in a long time

Just finished Darling in the Franxx. I didn't watch it when it came out for the whole drama around it, so I assumed it was going to be some retarded NTR that was so popular back then or just pure suffering. It was surprisingly comfy and emotional. I think the ending was kinda rushed, but it was berry cohesive and eberrything ended nicely, I'm satisfied with what I watched and I swear I don't understand the drama around it, I searched a bit about it and it had to do with Ichigo, but if it is what I think it is, then jesus, the otakus in japan that sent the dead threats were fucking retards. Maybe I should give Re:Zero a try, since I have not watched it for similar reasons to Darling in the Franxx.
>>1275 I've been holding off on Re:Zero because of the director cuts and not knowing what exactly to download, also the grimdark feel doesn't seem appropriate right now. The manga was breddy gud but it's still not the best isekai imo.
>>1275 You ain't wrong about Re:Zero. It's is so forgettable and mediocre, honestly. I think only 15 year old normalfriends treat it like some good anime because it's the first real anime they watched besides kid shows like Naruto and One Piece.

>>1275 You should read the Darling in the Franxx manga, it's finished recently and feels much more complete. Also I woodn't recommend Re:Zero. Not exactly because of the drama but the absolutely pathetic protagonist. He was irritating even in the novels but the anime butchered his character even more. It has a few nice scenes but if you're interested I'd recommend the LN instead.
it's not animu, but baman piderman is overall berry comfy up until the spoopy ghost seasons. still good but with dashes of uncomfy. i don't know if there are many comfy western shows beyond intentionally child-oriented shows. interstitials like CN city often count but hardly any shows.
I can't believe I'm just watching Eromanga Sensei right now. The reason I avoided it back then it's because even though I'm kinda a siscon myself, I have bad memories about it and I also have bad memories about Oreimo, plus I outgrow tsunderes even though I do still find them pleasant, but I guess the market was so trucking full of them that I didn't feel like seeing them for a while. Having said that, boy did taking time away from them helped, and even then, I have to say Sagiri is FAR from an annoying tsundere, I found the Elf girl far more annoying then her. All the characters were pretty cool and the synamic was different from ship I've seen before. I'll give Eromanga Sensei a 10/10. I'm about to watch the OVAs, though, but I do have a couple of questions before that: What the hell was that scene with Kirino and Kyosuke? What the truck? I mean, I guess they are in akihabara so it is probably cosplay? I thought that maybe the anime acknowledge itself being fictional, but there are also other fictional franchises alluded like literally inside, like Sword Art Online and even Toradora. So just what the hell?
I watched FLCL again after a long time, and it is as great as I remember. I have a question, though, I know that over the years FLCL had some sequels, I believe? Are they worth watching? I'm berry afraid of sequels because I think almost all the time they retroactively ruin their originals.
>>770 Did the main female character ever get groped or raped or anything like that? Im curious if i should keep watching it. I dont want to watch that kind of stuff. I heard that she gets kidnapped and then groped. Is that true?
>>1864 A bit I guess. She was forced into a whorehouse one episode.
>>1873 It isn't berry vulgar, though.
Been watching el cazador de la bruha a bit, but I have found it hard to commit to the end. It's not that the shows bad perse, its just thats how I always am with these things. The show is essentially mystery with "professional" bounty hunter girl and her bounty. The music and the characterization really helps to make the show fun to watch if anything. I keep asking why does a show like this have music like this? It's so good! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJz13G9x-eY and this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTAmfkx7Gbc
>>885 I think it’s considered a “masterpiece” because compared to what was there at the time it’s much more mature.
I’ve just been watching animes like YuruYuri and Non Non Bikori and I just don’t care
I completely agree, outside the opening music and that escape scene the rest of the show was extremely meh. That music is just so good.
>>1046 This anime is one of the greatest things ive ever witnessed. Dying and being reborn sounds wonderous, becoming something entirely different than what you once were that even your family woodnt recognize you. Just passing on to another place of existance.
Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor will always be one of my favorites. One Outs is good too.
>>640 Just finished watching Dorohodero. It was pretty good.

aight bros i just ended Texhnolyze. Probably the best psychological anime in a dystopian setting i've ever seen. Actually, i was asking myself if there is anything close to it stylistically; besides Lain, does anon know of any similar shows that deliver that same feeling of despair, slow paced but with intense scenes and lots of symbolism?

I recommend you watch Shigurui and Mononoke (12 episode series) if you're into psychotic levels of violence or Japanese ghost stories. Both look great and are 9/10 and 8/10 respectively.
