I mostly need an outlet to talk about Kamen Rider, really.

Binged on Fourze. It's great, except for like 12 episodes when Meteor shows up and drags everything down until Prom.

It seems people are having a positive reaction to the Shin Kamen Rider movie? Honestly I hate anything directed by Anno so haven't been paying close attention.

All these new kamen riders just sort of blend together for me, watching a franchise get dragged out forever is tiresome.

Not like it bothers the ones making it though since burnt-out oldfags are hardly their target audience.

ITT: Post examples of foreign anime dubs that are better than the original Japanese

Panty and Stocking is one that stands out to me, but I think it's helped by the English Language having more rude words and the /co/ related source material the show used as inspiration.

Most of the time I can't stand dubs, especially modern shit.

I was expecting it to be meso-american flavored Record of Lodoss War, but it became a mystery anime during episode 4. Still meso-american flavored fantasy adventure anime, just less emphasis on 'adventure'. It's a tad on the talky side, so it's not for everyone. It's premise, setting, mystery, and characters had me intrigued and enthralled so I loved the shit out of it even if it had a "FUCK YOU READ THE LN" ending, which I know rubs people the wrong way. It's 12 episodes I don't regret and still my AotS for Summer 2015.
The different adaptations spun off from the original OPM are all complete shit.

Especially the manga. Murata just can't help himself in dragging things out like a glacier stuck in tar, adding stuff that completely destroys the writing or repeatedly going back to redraw chapters he's already done
There's something weird going on with some threads in /jam/.
When you look at them on the board the posts are now somewhat out-of-order with much older posts being below newer ones.
But if you open up the thread to view it they are in the right place.

Apart from this thread the Sailor Moon one over >>89059 is also showing these symptoms.

There's a new Jojo manga out.
On one hand its the sign of an oldass franchise getting milked even harder when you get a spinoff written by a different person following side characters from an earlier instalment but on the other its interesting to see Hol Horse as a main character.

'cuz we finally have a place to post about anime and 'cuz it's not allowed on /co.
/Co thread here: http://boards.plus4chan.org/co/t237352.html#p237352

Let's start with one of the best - Orochi-Onna, sexy snake lady from Gegege no Kitaro: Nippon Bakuretsu.
Random thought; Why did the games seem to forget that Sonic can also use Chaos Control powers after SA2?
He can even manage it with a replica emerald.
They didn't, the entire plot of Sonic 06 revolves around the idea that all hedgehogs are capable of it.
>that all hedgehogs are capable of it
Why is STH such propaganda for hedgehog racial superiority?

No race that is constantly eating its own shit as a daily routine deserves such glorification.

I've heard PreCure described as DBZ for girls.

Old thread ==> >>93064
Fighting games had the real power levels ignored for 30+ years now (just look at how every MK boss gets beaten) so it's easier to just assume that everyone starts at the same base power level. It's a bit more difficult to assume you can play survival horror against a character who is impervious to damage and has a sixth sense to detect living beings.

I mean okay the game might be fun but it still looks stupid to have Oolong with a rocket launcher duking it out with Cell.
