There's nothing worse than seeing a new update for a manga you followed after months of inactivity, only to find that it's google translations in times new roman shoddily slapped onto some grainy uncleaned raws.
>>91192 Wasn't she all over him in the first chapter? And then she was not even remotely subtle in how much she wanted him after that. Why do the characters in this manga keep regressing instead of developing?
What are people watching this season? I'm watching Ore Monogatari, Is It Wrong to Try and Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Arslan Senki, Disappearance of Yuki Nagato, Ghost in the Shell: Arise, and Knights of Sidonia.
GOES DOWNHILL SO FUCKING FAST IN THE THIRD CHAPTER HOLY SHIT, not only does it have ecchi, it's loli foot fetish ecchi with awful panels focused on little girl butts with that gross, tired justification she's immortal and un-aging.
Like if you can deal with that I'm sure it's not bad, but it made my skin crawl so fucking hard, I feel disgusting having saved this page just to back up what I'm saying.
>>91510 Basically everything is happening just out of order, but still happening, Izana is the biggest difference, by now they are a cyborg after losing her arm and leg, and biologically shifting towards female.
>>91602 It's a dumbed down version of Great Teacher Onizuka. The premise is "good teacher teaches dumb kids about life", of course it attempts melodrama... "kill the teacher" is just a gimmick red herring.
>>>/baw/398175 Omitting het flags in Hibike! Euphonium is not something I can say is or is not true, for I am a dirty secondary, but I did spot some at least 2 het flags before the "omg het in muh yuri". The one I can remember off the top of my head is when one of the girls almost fell and then was saved by a man (I think it was Goto). And, yes, the yuri emotional spaghetti and blushing and etc are all there, I'm not denying that. I believe in KyoAni to deliver quality anime, even if I skipped Free an Amagi Brilliant Park was sub-par/90% wasted potential (again, I was a Secondary with Amagi, so I really shouldn't have thought that Amagi was going to be Roller Coaster Tycoon the Animation).
On that note; I marathoned Hyouka recently-ish. It's a really good good anime to marathon. It's slow pacing /a/ bitches about is none existent (on the marathon) and a bunch of episodes left me on the edge of my seat with anticipation to see how things pan out or if my guesses to the mysteries were correct.
>>91748 I have't watched Michiko to Hatchin or Birdy yet, so I can't compare. But I did watch Akame ga Kill. White Fox quality (see Katanagatari, Stiens;Gate or Jormungand) can polish wasted-potential edgy battle shōnen only so much. If I knew it was gonna air on Toonami, I would have not watched it while it was originally airing and instead watch it with /co/nami. /co/nami banter can make shit like SAO and Naruto filler bearable. Take that as you will.
>>91855 Assuming titty monsters = monster musume, the reason I'm not picking up Jitsu wa is, uh, I don't see why I should? The only reason I'm picking up monster musume is because i know a handful of people who are aswell. If you feel I should pick it up, please sell it to me.
Me and a bunch of friends set aside several weekends to watch that series, and for the most part it was a whole lot of "but how did they grab things in human form if the human form is only an illusion?" type questions that are typically relegated to the MST3K Mantra, and us knocking the absolute piss out of it's ridiculous ending.
I know it implies he's off once again to find his flower or whatever bullshit, but come on man. You and your buds are clearly all human, now. Get a job, leave it to some other asshole. You're people now, you can have disposable income. You can eat hot wings and chocolate and anything that has onions in it, shit you never dreamed of as a canine.
>>91919 >"but how did they grab things in human form if the human form is only an illusion?" Illusion makes more sense, but I always saw it as being able to take a human form, rather than just a deception cast on humans. I don't think this is too crazy, considering what Darsha did.
I think the real answer is just narrative convenience, since it's implied to be an illusion, given that when a robot attacks, it isn't fooled for a second. A human form, a real physical one, would make a lot more sense and raise far fewer questions, but for whatever reason, it's not what we got.
Unlike Tsugumomo (which I decided to check out, out of curiosity) because oh my god it's basically a harem porn.
I read through the whole thing...yes, partially because of all the naked...(and it is a lot of naked...of all ages...mostly the younger ones...and basically every harem anime cliche in the book) but aside from that the art and the action are goddamn amazing and the concept/universe are really interesting.
Now we just have to see what's gonna happen next in the story, now that the drama got turned up to 11 and they've killed off one of the two main protagonists and their mentor/friend, thus robbing the main character of all of his powers.
It's kinda amazing how hard literal power levels managed to make me drop Seven Sins. Meanwhile I'm still reading and enjoying Fairy Tail, which is basically the same kind of drivel, but at least it's still smart enough to not use fucking power levels. Well, and I guess the cheesecake also helps...
>>91950 I just recently saw the episode of the Grand Magic Games where they had a bikini-off. Which, despite being a 1-on-1 competition, basically every female took part in. And then they did catsuits and wedding gowns, and then men got in on that too.
I'm still working out just how I felt about all that.
Someone recommend me a finished manga to read. No shounen or slice of life moe please. So far I've read
Akira Oyasumi Punpun Uzumaki Gyo One Punch Man
I've read plenty of other little things over the years but these are the ones I remember as great. It's probably kinda hard to give me a rec with this list but generally I like reading the stuff that's regarded as "classic" for some reason or another.
I'm stuck on my phone instead of my computer for the next few weeks so maybe something without art that's too detailed, don't want it to be wasted by me reading it on my phone.
>The anime studio Production I.G announced on Friday that it acquired the rights to the 2000-2001 original video anime FLCL from Gainax, with whom I.G co-produced the anime. It added that it will take advantage of those rights for a "new anime remake" and other ventures
I really, really don't want a remake, let alone a sequel of flcl. But this is kinda more evidence to the /a/ saying "Gainax is dead" and I'm fine with that as soon as Panty & Stocking get aquired out from under Gainax, preferably by TRIGGER. I'm regretting telling a friend in response to his assertion that Gainax is dead; "That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even Death may die".
>>92165 It's alright. I don't like how it's a 30 minute long JSDF commercial or the lack of trigger control in episode 10. Oh, and GATE threads are possibly the worse threads of currently airing anime on /a/.
OH SHIT HEY, JOJOLION IS FINALLY GOING SOMEWHERE! We have answers on "Josefumi Kujo AKA Yoshikage Kira AKA their fusion name Josuke Higashikata" but who is mainly starting to go by Josefumi 'JoJo' Higashikata. it is implied may have been lovers or simply just lived together before their fusion.
We also have actual antagonists now! It seems the new universe has rolled Pillar Men and Vampires into a new significantly less OP and more desperate race called "Rock Humans" who are by default stand users and hibernate every six months by turning into statues, are default nature attuned and seem to dislike humans especially when they have to live amongst them. They kill any humans with knowledge of "Rokaka Fruit" and seem to be behind the mysterious Wall Eyes.
The fruits themselves seem to be"Equivalent Exchange" in fruit form, i.e. Missing limbs? Eat a piece and your eyes will turn to rocks and fall out but your limbs will regrow, the fruit can be used as much as needed to keep swapping things around. Josefumi might be the result of them eating the fruit and them literally being mashed together by the wall eyes.
Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace, or Laplace as I call it, is over. Here is my short and sweet Should You Watch; +Shota butt +God-like OP and ED songs -The mysteries aren't good -Characters are one dimensional Should You Watch Ranpo Kitan: Game of Laplace? No. 2/5: waste of time OR avoid unless you are scraping the bottom of the barrel already. Instead watch Death Note, Psycho-Pass, Paranoia Agent or Ghost in the Shell for your physiological cop drama mysteries needs, if you haven't already.
>>92240 >Does the anime follow the manga with a bunch of filler or does it do it's own thing like FMA and Soul Eater did? Looking it up, it's apparently like Soul Eater: it's the same until about the last ten episodes, then it diverges.
>>92240 I've watched and read all of Soul Eater, but I've only watched the anime for Blue Exorcist. I too went into Blue Exorcist to fill in the hole Soul Eater left behind. It didn't particularly work. And yes, it does deviate from it's source material as-well. In Blue Exorcist's case it is episode 17 (or so I've been told). Animation was good the soundtrack was slightly above average, but other than that is merely ok.
If you are looking for more Soul Eater I would recommend Soul Eater NOT! if you can handle a slice of life prequel not centered on Maka and her crew and/or can handle it's different style [pictured] which I was okay with, but it really should have been in the original Soul Eater anime style or in the NOT manga style which was the same as the last parts of the original manga. NOT! doesn't only focus on the new group of characters, but it also fills out characters who's arch were cut off by the anime; Ox, Harvar, Kim and Jacqueline. It even delves into how the Thompson sisters were before the series started. Another negative is that NOT! kinda had a shoestring budget and it shows really hard in an early fight, seen here >88646
And my other recommendation if you want something like Soul Eater is Noragami. It's also animated by BONES so the fights look fantastic. It's also and urban fantasy where characters wield other characters that transform into weapons to defeat baddies to return their souls to rest. And in Noragami's case all parties involved are spirits. Noragami is also getting a season two this fall season.
When I was twelve or thirteen and I was just starting my deep dive into anime, I rented this three-episode OVA called Iczer-One. Nothing I’d seen before it could’ve prepared me for the utter horror contained within that OVA—and no anime since has quite hit the same raw nerve of “holy shit that is all kinds of fucked up”.
…then I saw the Toonami trailer for Parasyte earlier tonight, and that raw nerve flared up something fierce. I don’t go looking for the horror/“fucked up” stuff and I’m probably not as desensitized to it as some people, so HOLY FUCKING SHITParasyte looks all kinds of fucked up and I can’t wait to see how it makes me feel all kinds of uncomfortable.
(Too bad it probably doesn’t have lesbian aliens in it, though.)
I’ve heard of Parasyte, but only in that I knew the name and the fact that it was a horror series. And yes, I generally don’t watch a lot of anime these days and what little I do watch is typically on Toonami, so I guess that makes me a time traveller (or an idiot, take your pick).
