Starting this thread with an extremely hot take. I watched Nana and I hated it. It's supposedly this very sad story about human relationships but all I saw was Nana K. being a dumbass and staying immature till the end. she supposedly sacrificed her happiness with a decent dude to be with an asshole who will support her financially but will probably won't give a fuck about her or the child and the child will end up fucked up. I believed that she would mature after fucking up with men that much or that she would be called out on acting so much like a dog but even though she was told off by her friends, I think she got away too easily with her bs. Probably the dynamics of the characters are shown better in the manga, and I know this manga is incomplete therefore the anime is too, but I couldn't understand anyone's point of view. Maybe it's a personality thing as I have seen people getting emotional on how impactful the series have being in their lives but I just can't get it. Due to this alone I may be missing something but for me it was just wasted time

I think everyone is annoyed by Hachiko. I personally love the supporting characters the most and they get good enough focus that I didn't really need to think about Hachiko much. It also has my husbando Yasu so, I could keep rewatching it forever just to witness his perfection.

Is there a lolcow-approved recommendation chart? I'm not talking about the fujo one I've seen posted here, just anime/manga in general. I'd make one myself but unfortunately I haven't watched enough anime (out of the series that are commonly recommended here) to make sure the information is accurate.

That's not a hot take, most people feel bad for her because she's too stupid to function or are annoyed by her for good reasons. She keeps making bad decisions in the manga and since it's on hiatus I assume the anime isn't trying to give more explanations as to why she's so… idk. Retarded? Does the anime have the scenes in the future when her kids are in primary school?

Hey I was just thinking about Utena earlier and I think my opinion is a rare one:
Ikuhara is not an LGBT champion, he's just another male artist who has a fixation on idealized lesbians (anime lesbians, still more idealized than real gay women) or otherwise non straight dynamics. This isn't necessarily because he's a pervert, otherwise he'd just draw some doujins and go into yuri hentai instead of using it as a storytelling tool to tell the tales of otherwise implausible dynamics like CLAMP does and other female authors who do fujo material. However, it's on record that he hated Mamoru from Sailor Moon for being the idealized prince charming trope which he broke down in his next work; I think it's interesting that he really loathed what is pretty much a straight female fantasy, one that is just as common but much more harmless than seeing gay women as fetish material. Hardly any little girl who grows up in love with the idea of princes needs it beaten or abused out of them to shatter the illusion like the cast of Utena, we just age out of it. Usagi's romance with Mamoru is pretty weak after the first season - but it's like that precisely because he kept getting written out in favor of an increasing number of characters. Ikuhara basically doesn't like what can be a perfectly fine and healthy fantasy of many girls while having a pretty strange focus on what he will never have or be (gay). As I write this, I'm thinking of that one bizarre interview where he recalls a girl who rejected him which involved him vividly imagining being an alien (or something like that) due to the extent of his feelings and I can't help but think he must have some strange ideas on what it means to love women. I'm not seriously positing anything bad about him as a person but it is food for thought. Take this with a grain of salt because I'm not gay either.

Even though I mainly complain about Nana K. here, in general I couldn't get the appeal of the story overall. It's a top rated anime/manga that very few people seem to have criticisms of, but I couldn't find many things to like about it(aside from the artstyle, Yasu and Nana K.'s friends who seemed like the only rational and chill people in the anime). I just don't understand how Nana K. got so little flack for her choices aside from "your choice sucks but if you love him whatever" without thinking long term.
Also the subplot about how Shin is a minor prostituting himself for money and how the Trapnest singer gets so attached to him even though she is like 23 doesn't seem to be brought up that much. I also couldn't get how the two Nana's got so attached to each other esp. with Nana O. admitting she got Nobu to become Nana K.s bf so she would have her closer to herself. I've seen people saying how they relate to the characters or the situations but all I saw was mostly dumb decisions by most of the characters.

>Does the anime have the scenes in the future when her kids are in primary school?

The last episode shows Yasu, Nobu, Nana K., her one child and Shin many years later in a get together where it is unclear what Nana O.'s fate is but it's implied they are waiting for her to come back. Honestly, without having read the manga at all, I thought this was a sad story because Nana O. died at some point.

Well we could start making a collective one. Possible rules:
>no movies
>nothing released this year
If it's a list it could be infinite, but if it's a chart a bit more than 50 titles could be enough. I'd personally like it to include more post-2008 than pre-2008 anime, as the few already existing anime recommendation charts heavily focus on pre-2008, and a recommendation chart should make you discover new things
I personally would start by putting in:
>Madoka Magica
>Revolutionary Girl Utena
>Kuragehime
>Sailor Moon
>Azumanga Daioh
>FMA Brotherhood
>Mononoke
>Shin Sekai Yori
>Shiki
>Panty & Stocking
>Asobi Asobase
>Baccano
>Psycho Pass
>Serial Experiments Lain
>Princess Tutu
>Mushishi
>Gankutsuou
>Boogiepop Phantom
>Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei
>Kino no Tabi
Disagreements and new entries are welcome, and for the chart to be complete we'll really need the opinion of anyone here who has watched 300+ animes

Honestly most of the older /a/ recs worked for me. The lists that contain series like Gankutsuou, Utena, Madoka, Tutu, Haibane Renmei and all that. Ignore recs that list modern isekai.

Something more "recent" I cannot recommend enough that you might have already watched is Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. I have never seen another person watching it and not liking it. It's the life story of two rakugo performers/hanashika through youth and old age, their arguments and issues, drama and a bit of history and a lot of thoughts on rakugo.

I also recommend Fune wo Amu (The Great Passage) if you want something super comfy and realistic with a bit of bittersweetness. It's an anime about a bunch of people creating a modern dictionary. This is the entire plot, but it's great.

I've always thought Ikuhara was a hack, Utena was good because it was made with other people but his other projects were not good imo, Mawaru Penguidrum was pretentious and trying way too hard with the metaphors and Yurikuma Arashi was plain horrible, I don't get how some lesbians defended this trash when the dude is so obviously a fetishist. I haven't watched his other projects but I really don't want to based on what I've already seen from him.

>>258414
This. Ikuhara NEEDS a co-director to rein him in. He is super creative and artsy and great at depicting emotional scenes (see his Sailor Moon episodes too), but let him loose and you will get some pretentious semi-story that everybody gives up on understanding halfway in and maybe there isn't even a clear meaning behind all of it.

IIRC Revue Starlight was done by an apprentice of Ikuhara and this series is fucking awesome because it bears his traits and the artsy scenes but doesn't go overboard with all the symbolism and chaotic narratives that prefer interpretative variety over concrete storytelling.

Speaking of which >>258365 give Revue Starlight a chance, anon. If you haven't already.

Couldnt disagree more. His creativity is exactly what this industry needs. Utena movie which was mostly in his control was great. So was Penguindrum. Sarazanmai was fun, it mainly suffered from cramming too much in 12 episodes but I imagine things like episode lengths are out of his control. Absolutely agree on YKA being dogshit though, that show was borderline insulting for something that was trying to “““critique””” society and lesbians/yuri or whatever BS conclusions people came up with. With the reigns-on I guess his ideas do become more digestible but I personally love seeing the absurd things he can come up with and drawing conclusions from that.

Revue (TV show) was not bad but imo the script really lacked. Repetitions for the sake of repeating lines to seem “deep” instead of using those repeats to recontexualize the lines after something happened in the show. I also couldn’t bring myself to care for the main character compared to some of the other interesting girls.
The Revue film, however, was fantastic. An incredible conclusion to the TV show and I felt that every character was handled perfectly.

Most girls who read the manga like 15 years ago with me in middle and then high school wanted to follow Nana way more than Hachi because she had a specific goal, she seemed way cooler and stylish on the surface and she wasn't braindead so she was way more relatable by default. I loved the manga until the moment when Hachi decided to not abort. What I don't get is that while I don't hate Hachi that much it's never explained why exactly she's so fucked in the head. She acts like she has to be a cutesy obedient gf/stay at home wife which I guess makes sense as these are the expectations for Japanese girls from her time, but her family is way more normal than her and nobody ever pressured her into being dependant on men. She was already fucked in the head when she was "datin" the salaryman in high school, you'd expect some kind of backstory explaining how she got brainwashed into thinking she's worthless without a guy, even something simple and relatable like how she used to feel very lonely while growing and wants as many friends and loves ones as possible but nope. There's nothing.

I think maybe I should try to watch the anime to get some closure since it seems to stop right before the manga introduces even more characters and plot points that are never developed because of the hiatus. To this day I'm still wondering when Hachi will divorce Takumi the mega faggot and we just don't know. It's like Hachi is punishing herself for being a total doormat and a loser instead of getting her shit together once and for all because in the future scenes in the manga it seems like she and everyone else have considered that option. If we get a proper ending I expect something like Parakiss, where the MC and her main love interest don't stay together because this isn't working out between these two (and that's an understatement when it comes to Takumi and Hachi) but still.

Hachi hate is never based.
Its mostly cause the people who dislike her look down her actions without ever really trying to understand her as a character and reasoning behind her actions. Real world experience is needed to fully enjoy NANA tbh.
If Nana O., The girl everyone prefers, sees worth in Nana K., Then maybe its a look inwards people outta try

Mamoru was objectively a boring character. Ikuhara co-created and directed Wedding Peach too and there's no lesbians in it, the difference is the dudes in it (minus Limone arguably) actually have personalities outside being a love interest. For all I know he is a lesbian fetishist but let's not pretend writing Mamoru out wasn't a good decision for Sailor Moon.

I don't hate her as a character but I find her super frustrating. If she was someone I knew irl I would want to slap some sense into her. She's a retard and is surrounded by retards who can't control her. For once she was in the right when she stated she was disgusted with Shoji cheating on her and depressed and what does Junko do? She goes all "hm well sweaty maybe you're actually responsible for being cheated on! Think about his feelings!" how the fuck is Hachi going to move on with her life and be more mature if she's told retarded shit like that and constantly dismissed when she has actual issues and needs support? But that doesn't excuse what happened with Takumi and Nobu. No offense but Takumi's dick CAN'T be that good. As I said I started the manga like 15 years ago when I was a teenager and loved it, and now that I'm rereading this as an adult I realize how literally everyone in the manga is mentally ill and has temperature room IQ precisely because I have far more experience in life now. Except Yasu (maybe) and the drummer from Trapnest. I could sperg endlessly over the manga (and maybe the anime later if I find the time to start it) because I like it a lot but lord, the characters are so fucking stupid. Before I read this thinking "wow the characters are grown adults and mature, it's a nice change compared to other shojo manga I read" and now I'm like "why the fuck is this shitty brat talking about getting married and staying pregnant when she can't even keep an easy job?"

I wish I could find again that one source where it explained that Nana COULD be a Yazawa’s autobiography. She was friends with the two singers that voice the soundtrack and the manga have astonishing similarities to their “counterparts”.
When all is said and done, I believe all characters are at fault because they are young adults, in that weird place when you are both adult enough to take big steps but not enough to be “smart” with your choices and words.
Everyone’s stupidity is painfully relatable and that’s what upsets me the most, they are just how fresh 20s year old are.
I do not believe it is a manga about “consequences”, well in a sense, it is, but it’s mostly a love letter to their past selves and reflection on the mistakes everyone did in the past, both being not supportive and not there for them (in a sense, Junko was an awful friend to Nana once she got to live together with her fiancé. I get she wanted to slap some sense in Hachi, but she was just there to blame her and tell her “it’s your choice”. She profusely washed her hands off the needs of Hachi), both the self punishing that lead to everyone’s suffering (I believe Nana K. stood with Takumi because she thought she deserved the suffering after gaslighting herself into thinking she wanted to be the ~ perfect wife ~ for so long), staying after someone that just wants to live their life, giving up on everything for them (Yasu, Nobu), and so much more.

Not Takumi, thought. He’s just an asshole and deserves the rope, abusive fucker.
Ah and that pedo uwu too pure to exist uwu Leila. Do I hate her with all myself, she’s always pretending to be the poor princess victim while she 100% knows what’s happening around her, and if not, she’s double stupid and I hate her even more.

I do agree too that the support for Nana k. always seems to be rooted in the other characters selfishness and not out of actual concern for nana k. Tbh nana k. Seems like the only one with pure motives most times.
Junko pissed me off so much. Her excuse of "Well, Shoji is also my friend" after she hid and basically tried to play middle man to nana k. about shoji cheating. She talked about it like she was trying to be a good friend to everyone except that she def sided with shoji as if she wasnt HS friends with nana k., Victim blaming nana k.

You're correct, and that's why Hachi decides to stay with Takumi but I don't even get why she even forced herself to have a kid to begin with when she can barely take care of herself.

Takumi def as an appeal to him looks wise but so does nobu plus he is nice. Honestly though even if Blast became popular at the time where hachi was preggo I don't think NobuxHachi wouldve lasted and she would still inevitably be with takumi due to limited options OR Nana O. wouldve def stepped in for Hachi further fueling the the otp yuri flames

What NANA characters would be worthy of a thread? The milkiest character?

Considering the connection to jrock, Ik for a fact that most of these characters would end up with a thread. But a particular hate boner for Nana K. Would make her containment thread way popular because half of the anons would be seething because she gets to live the celebrity husband and friends dream despite her flaws kek.

God Reira annoyed me so much, anyone care to further analyze the relationship between her and Takumi? The way I see it she is kind of the ultimate madonna (VS the "whores" he sleeps with) to Takumi, hence why he refuses to have sex with her despite her beauty, but when Nana K becomes the mother of "his" children she is replaced in that regard. That would explain why she potentially feels threatened by Hachi to the point where she gets Takumi to cheat on her.

Reira and Takumi def have a sort of Madonna Whore complex going on except the attraction is one sided.
It all boils down to the fact that takumi is a narcissist. I don't actually believe takumi really "loves" and its more of a control thing for his own benefit. Hachi is such a people pleaser and pushover, she serves as an ego boost for takumi and because of her loving disposition she also serves as a comfort to heal his troubled childhood wounds thus he places her on a pedestal, something reira could never be as she is a part of that cruel reality of his. Reira is stuck onto the long standing connection between her and takumi, she could have anyone in the world and the one she wants won't even look her direction. She seems obsessed with the chase. But for takumi, reira is but a tool for his desires. His desire to succeed and thus his reluctance to any romantic intimacy may be because he thinks that if he breaks her heart he would lose his ticket until his very lack of romanticism with reira is what will cost him TRAPSNEST something he has worked most his life for and thus he allows reira to cheat with him. His wishing for her to fall in love with another is so he doesnt have to risk further complications and wants it shoved onto someone else in a "clean" manner. Im sure that if shin was of age takumi would have had no problem pushing shin onto reira.

Mamoru is bland but I wasn't really focusing on what his exclusion says about him or SM and was more pointing out what a male director thought about part of the creation of a female author's (pretty blatant) wish fulfilment piece without saying either is better than the other, just that for someone who likes yuri themes a lot he ironically wrote out a straight couple. Imagine if he had the creative freedom to use Mamoru himself to break down some of those tropes instead of waiting until Utena and there were episodes that showed Mamoru doubting his future with Usagi or something like that, that would have added an interesting layer to a romance about your past and future love. Mamoru is okay with it for like all 200 episodes.

I don't think Ikuhara is this simplistic but there's an attitude you can see sometimes in Japanese media (and I'm not familiar but I wouldn't be surprised if it was found in older western media about homosexuality too) that's like:
>Love is love!
>Boys can love boys
>Girls can love girls
>Brothers can love their sisters
>And adults can love children
Where homosexuality is just another taboo, used for fetish fuel or dramatic forbidden love storylines. There isn't really much thought about whether people in real life practice any of these things, and it certainly isn't being created with actual gay people as the audience, even if it's eg. an f/f couple in a work targeted at women.

It's ironic because I actually find most modern series boring as shit. I don't understand how people can deem LogH or Lain boring but then watch the umpteenth isekai that is just a lot of BlahBlah where the hero explains how he'll rule the fucking kingdom by using his strategie game knowledge.

I've watched this recently and I liked it. The idea that people in isekai world can manipulate fate and make their own fanfiction into canon is both funny and interesting.

Also tbh I think the main couple of that show is pretty weak, so I'm not sad when Hitomi went back home in the end. I still feel like they were missing something since the whole "romance adventure" started with her got reluctantly dragged along the drama. /a/'s incel brain really hates Hitomi because of the ending and love triangle even though she wasn't solely responsible for it

I loved the two main characters but I didn't see any genuine chemistry either. She was dragged along and he was the heroic fighter who buddied up with her to defeat the villain.

I mean anime like Casshern Sins, Girls' Last Tour or Houseki no Kuni.

I can only absolutely recommend them to everybody that likes stories that are dark-bittersweet and nostalgic but not edgy. If anybody has watched the latter two though you should give the manga a chance. Girls' Last Tour in particular only has like 20 more chapters or something and the last few are hit hard but in a good way, especially the art museum imo. People that read it know what I mean. But the anime adaption itself was perfect.

This is exactly the kind of series I love. I think it's the existential nature of post-apocalyptic settings that I'm drawn to, not the "dark and edgy and everyone's killing each other" side of post-apocalyptic, or stories that are more about societal breakdown. Really this sort of setting is just another way to explore themes of mortality and meaning, but on a species-wide level in addition to an individual level. Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou has this vibe at times, though obviously it's mostly very peaceful and humans are going extinct only very gradually.

Have you seen La Maison en Petits Cubes? Not sure if the setting counts but it is very similar in tone to what you're describing.

Also reading the GLT manga made me think that the author has some form of depression

So this is the one where Anno's not-the-good-kind of tism was showed the most. The characters in this anime monologued a lot. Right at the first episode already had the MC said her character to the viewers. The worst case was when some girl was exposed with her subtle bullying, what she did afterward? She fucking monologued in her head about how fucked up she was. I still enjoyed watching it but eventually this kind self-awareness started to annoyed me around first 10 eps. Not even Shinji in NGE monologued that much, he only did that in special circumstances.

Basically.. the number 13 is super important in aot since from chapter 1 page 13 it foreshadows chapter 138 page 45. So we gotta look at patterns of 13.

From chapter 56 if you keep adding 13 it will lead you chapter to chapter of clues. Chapter 69 in particular has a panel of Levi where he is draw facing away from the reader. Without adjusting panels at all his outline fits perfectly against chapter 108's hooded figure. Both are positioned the same. Furthermore, coloured chapter 69 was released alongside the last chapter, Isayama implying this is an important chapter for clues. Chapter 69 is full of flower & crown symbolism. Flowers are associated with the Ackerman clan due to their name meaning "Ploughman" and crowns are associated with the Royal bloodline

>I think it's the existential nature of post-apocalyptic settings that I'm drawn to, not the "dark and edgy and everyone's killing each other" side of post-apocalyptic

Yes exactly. Dramatic edgy stuff usually pisses me off lol. It's sadly what's popular in the west, but I like the existential aspect way more. I even think it's more realistic.

Speaking of this, not a post-apocalypse but I think that the Magnitude 8 anime went down that path as well and it even has a good story with some big surprises. I liked it at lot.
I remember how anons were complaining about it back then because there was no mass panic like in hollywood movies, but then the Fukushima disaster happened just a few years later and the Japanese people were indeed disciplined and tried to get through this together instead of robbing stores or hurting others.

Frankly I liked it more when I rewatched it in my mid 20s. I liked the adult relationships and the general focus on their mistakes and choices. Not many anime with teen mc's have a well developed adult cast. I love Gendo as a character, he's really pathetic, stunted and retarded kek. I generally don't care about mecha because the big blocky designs put me off and I find them boring, but evas will always look and sound amazing to me.
I don't care about the muh symbolism and I'm not a diehard defender but I can see why it's so popular.

I liked it as a kid and liked it when I rewatched it as an adult, but I think it's because I just knew at the time it was a popular show, watched it without any expectation and enjoyed it a lot for what it was.

Even as an Eva defender I don't blame you, 99% of males in the fandom are trash. In all my years in it I've only met a handful of decent men who weren't in it just to argue over waifus or who don't try to justify some of the series' creepier elements, and only one of those guys was straight, kek
>>259325
Most kawoshin fans in my experience don't try to pretend Eva is perfect or above criticism like other parts of the fandom often do, but maybe my perception is skewed since I mostly just interact with a small portion of them.

Also dont talk yourself down or feel too bad about not ‘getting’ Eva, its not even half as complex as it comes off or people make it sound. I still liked the story and characters, but it’s definitely overanalysed and presented obnoxiously for something quite straightforward.

It's a list of anime that (may) appeal strongly to women (female gaze basically, whether intentional or not), but I'm not sure about the quality of all of them or what nonnies think of all of them. Still a work in progress.
Reasons for being on this list include things like female protagonist, relatable themes, non-fetishistic portrayal of female relationships, non-coomery female designs, husbandofag and/or fujo appeal, and/or female creator(s).
Also, there may be some titles that have already been mentioned (I want to know whether my list is accurate too kek, sorry). Please let me know what you think of it and add to your list whichever anime you think is good enough.

That's news to me.

There are things on the list that didn't appeal to me even though I watched part or all of the series: Promare, Aggretsuko, Ascendance of a Bookworm, Kageki Shoujo, Maiko-san Chi no Makanai-san, Cells at Work!, Wotakoi, black butler, d gray-man, Net-juu no Susume, Eizouken (sorry I can't want anime about mangaka), Koukyuu no Karasu
Some I just didn't watch to begin with and probably won't in the future: Thermae Romae Novae, ACCA, Moomin, The Cat Returns, Shounen sports anime (except I did once watch All Out! which was very female-gazey), beastars, gundam wing (saw SEED though)
The rest I watched and enjoyed to one degree or another.

I see, I haven't watched/read it but it's there mostly because it doesn't seem to be male gazey and because according to some polls, its reader base in Japan is mostly female.

>>259587
Just realized that Princess Tutu is not on there, I don't know why I didn't include it. If it wasn't a mistake, I probably thought that it was aimed at women just like Michiko to Hatchin (and the point was to make a list of anime that appeal to women but aren't classified as "for women"). But then Escaflowne is also on there so idk what the fuck I was thinking.
Of course both of these anime are great and if I had to make a list of female-oriented anime I'd include them first as some of the best examples.

>Some I just didn't watch to begin with
Personally I only genuinely liked ACCA from your list.
Thermae Romae is more of a niche thing if you are into historical shit like me, Beastars starts awesome and the first half is worth a read or watch and somewhat concluded, but the end of the manga was imo so bad it retroactively killed all attachment I had to the early part and I agree about shounen sports.
SK8 was amusing and I really enjoyed it but I wouldn't put it on any rec list.

>>259598
>That's news to me.
They're obviously made with women in mind, but they're technically shounen, except for Kokyuu no Karasu because it's original anime, it wasn't published on a magazine so those categories don't apply to it.

The reason I made that list was because there was some scrote saying that "there is no good anime for girls" and aside from some universally critically acclaimed shoujo and josei manga/anime like Rose of Versailles or Cardcaptor Sakura, and aside from the scrote obviously using his own male taste as an objective measure of quality, a lot of female-oriented (or female-gazey) stuff is outside of the categories of shoujo and josei, for example Kuroshitsuji which is published in a shounen magazine desspite being notorious for its fujo fandom and the author being a massive fujo as well. And because of this, it's easy to miss all the anime and manga that are actually for women or for both men and women but technically belong to the "not for girls" category, hence why people think animanga for women sucks. That's what I was trying to prove with that list.

Isn't the marketing thing a quirk of the industry? Like, some manga that is kind of intended for girls or women, or neutral, are re-labeled as for boys–because girls are more likely to read shounen than boys will shoujo. Not sure if that's true. Anyway, I think Vanitas no Carte got that treatment.

It has one maybe needless bath scene in the beginning, but it emphasizes more that he sees her more like a pet and not a "woman". It moves past the premise pretty fast and just focuses on the girls personal growth through her new experiences while also learning more about magic dude.

Not everyone is a degenerate that's turned on by large age gaps and teenager x adult ships like you are. It's a totally valid concern and also, there's nothing wrong with acknowledging that Japan has a problem with the normalization of pedo- I mean, "ephebophilia". Sorry that someone saying it's creepy offends you. Also the series literally starts with the protagonist being sold at an auction as a slave so yeah, it's way worse than just an age gap.
>>259646
He's a very old monster (non-human, though IIRC nobody knows what he is exactly) but if I understood correctly, he still has a very immature mind and is still struggling to learn how to behave, feel and think. Though the ways in which his mental immaturity manifests are pretty reminiscent of relationship abuse, I found that pretty questionable and how the protagonist still likes him after he throws his tantrums out of jealousy. It's definitely sending the wrong message, but if the goal was to make the audience scared (this series has horror elements as well) then the author succeeded because the fact that Elias is not human and therefore doesn't possess human morality is terrifying on several occasions. One time he also tries to eat her because by nature, he eats humans.
But aside from that, there is absolutely no sexual shit involving the MC, that I remember. I don't think the dude even feels arousal. There's a noticeable contrast between his non-human behavior and his human-like appearance, or how a human male would act. But it's easy to interpret all that as a metaphor, kek.
But that's about the only thing I found questionable. I loved the show otherwise, so much so that I didn't want it to end. I still gotta watch the OVAs.

I tried to like it because I love the OST and the setting, but it felt like an annoying otome to me.
I don't have a problem with the age gap and the guy being a monster, I even think he's interesting. But after a while I was annoyed about how every magical character keeps praising MC for existing and most of the running time is spent telling me how super special she is when she barely does anything at all and is mostly just the passive wallflower kind all of these series seem to have. She was also a slave that was bought btw. making it feel even more like a self-insertion dime novel.

I think they wanted to attract the live action audience with this. Considering how popular CSM is and that capeshit isn't much different from battle shounen plus CSM referring a lot of western movies and having some more serious aspects (compared to genki shounen like OP, MHA, DB etc.) they probably thought they could get people who are usually not into anime into watching that too, increasing the popularity.
But I also think it failed. The lack of expressions is annoying sometimes and the endless CGI is glaring and ugly. If they really cared they would have drawn over it at least but they just use the raw CGI and that never works. Good counter example is Ousama Ranking 21. The complex fighting scene between MC and his giant dad was done in 3D and animators basically just traced the movements later and it looks top.

No. 260083

>>260078
This is honestly a very fair criticism. I had the same thought a few times even though I'm a big fan (especially the anime because I thought they made it very pretty and I enjoyed the music and pacing choices). MC was really hated and treated like she was worthless as part of her backstory but the 180 degree turn to being slathered with love and affection kinda gives you whiplash instead of taking you along on a journey of healing from her trauma or whatever – I think the author just doesn't have the skill to write about those kind of complex emotional issues (but she did write/draw a good English countryside westaboo fantasy lol, very comfy.)

I never EVER see anybody talking about this but Nami yo Kiite Kure was one of the best comedy anime I watched in years.

It's the first time in ages that I have seen an adult female main character who acts like an adult woman. It's a down-to-earth series about a woman getting the chance to become a late-night talk show host for a radio station after she ranted about her ex with the station manager when she was drunk. He considers her funny and recognizes the talent she has so he asks her if she wants to do a radio show.

There is no fanservice (besides some male asses that get groped IIRC) and the MC Minare is imo well written and multi-faced.
I think many farmers would like her because she's is often badass and brutal but depending on the situation she can be a whiny bitch, envious, full of herself, nice and genki or just get wasted and act like a drunk hobo and she has moods. And an ex she is really angry at.

I am so happy I gave it a chance because it felt good seeing a rare anime about adults with jobs that doesn't draw them like kids or inserts any stupid pandering. Plus the show is comfy imo. No serious drama, it's funny and it felt surprisingly wise a lot of times.
Sorry for the text wall lol, but this place here is the only space where recommending this might make sense. /a/ is full of coomers they aren't interested in women like the characters of this anime.

I have a thing to nitpick here. I really hate the office business clothes and general clothes that are worn in anime with adult protagonists. I know these are the current normie japanese trends, but I feel like older anime at least had more fashionable or quirky stuff going on. I know japan still has a lot of really fun fashion subcultures but it seems like no one is taking advantage of it and every character older than 20 is out there dressed like a fucking grandma. In anime catered for a female audience you'd expect to see something cooler and more inspiring but there is nothing like that

NTA, I looked up that scene to see how bad it was, saw some moids defending it with "it's only sexual if you look at it that way!!" and finally watched the scene myself. It's a weirdly quiet scene, an underage moe girl with suspiciously detailed feet, clipping her toenails, then sniffing the nail clipper, sighing in her fetishy child-like voice and blushing. Who the fuck reacts like that in real life? You gotta be either pretending to be dumb or extremely desensitized to anime degeneracy to be able to defend that shit as innocent and normal and not something that was meant to look erotic. I also read it only gets worse and more blatantly sexual with each episode. Fucking moids I swear. Also the side profile of her face is atrocious (the absolute state of moeshit) but I guess otaku pigs can't jack off to normal human anatomy anymore.

If you're talking about suits like pic related then they just don't have a choice. Specific stores in Japan sell that kind of suits with the matching ties, shirts and shoes because it's not a uniform but it might as well be, companies require that style for some jobs. I'm saying this based on ads I've seen in Tokyo on TV or in posters outside a few years ago, but apparently internation companies are less strict in general.

That's because it is catered to Japanese audiences, not global. Conformity isn't seen as a bad thing there by most. All that crazy fashion stuff from 20-30 years ago is long dead, today's woman in Japan just can not relate to it. And she does not really even have the option. You can't go into most jobs or your school dressed like a weirdo like you can in some other countries. The fashion subcultures are tiny and basically like a hobby. You saw it in older anime because it was current at the time. And even when it was relatively big and recognized, most women did not, or could not participate. Give it 10 or 20 years and maybe you will see some kind of individualistic fashion revival and then you may see it in anime again. Just don't expect it to last.

Yes, they can definitely get away with putting it in but what I'm getting at is that the audience is not really going to relate to or feel inspired by it or really even appreciate it. It's not the same as the west where people feel like they should be unique and make some statement and get inspired by something like that. They will mostly think she looks weird and wonder why does she dress so weird. A lot of market research goes into these products and if you're trying to sell to that audience you don't put something they'll find off-putting. It's better to do that kind of design in a fantasy setting which you do still see because then the audience expects it. That is until you know the audience is embracing or interested in that kind of thing at the moment, that's when you will start to see it again.

I've actually been thinking about this and it just makes me more confused. Apparently the director decided to make the anime more serious to make it more appealing to non weebs, but capeshit is absolutely not serious and is about the most mainstream stuff there is. Capeshit-adjacent battle shounen is already a pretty popular genre, how did he think this would make the series more normie appealing?
To me, even the few moments that still seem like they're supposed to be jokes feel off to me. I'm not sure if it's the director's fault or if it's the VA's delivery still flabbergasted that they really had the lead VA in such a hyped up major production be some random literal-who sony music guy with no voice acting experience

Dumb excuse. She's a fictional character not a real person, she was created by someone who decided that she'd have to be wearing a fetish maid outfit while boxing, and when you think about it that way you have to wonder what was the author's intent, because it sure as fuck isn't something that attracts a primarily female audience. Also the way the characters are drawn >>261172 also says a lot about the kind of audience it's aimed at. It's ok if you're a woman who personally enjoys that crap but don't pretend it's not for moids and don't complain when someone else says it. If it really isn't that bad, you could say something like "the coombait is easy to ignore" or "it's very tame compared to other moeshit shows" and it would be more accurate and probably make someone else curious enough to watch it.

CSM is garbage. I read the entire manga and it bored me basically the entire time - there are a few good moments but its drowned out in all the coomer garbage and shitty, rushed writing.

I feel like the author is one of those guys who has a bunch of cool ideas for key scenes but has no idea how to link them and make a coherent story out of them. The decisive action scenes were really good and full of interesting visual ideas imo but everything else felt disjointed, a big missed opportunity.

No. 261321

Actually that's the strong point of CSM. The author is a fan of movies, which is a medium which greatly emphasizes visual aspect over story, and he wanted to reproduce that feeling in a manga. Just like in some of the most celebrated movies, the story matters very little: since manga is both a visual and literary medium, he just chose to sacrifice one aspect in order to greatly improve the other. It's working for me, but I agree it can be jarring if you're expecting something more traditional

I have super low standard but I can kind of "apreciate" that at least CSM treats consent like an implicitely understood concept by having Denji ask to grope women and not even triying to sleaze around the conditions the women set. Any other shounen would have him just literally sexually assaulting every single woman around him as a joke

I 100% agree with the part about killing characters. CSM makes me feel like Fujimoto is one of those guys that thinks nobody has ever killed named characters before so he thinks he's being sooo smart by introducing 20 characters at once and then killing 19 of them in 5 chapters, and then doing it again, and then again, and again… and by the 50th time he does it it's just really annoying. It doesn't even have shock value because he does it so much.

>>261321

Nonny I'm sorry but what movies are you talking about? Movies still have plot, and having a confusing plot is still considered a negative for a movie
spoiler for slightly ot sperg and for assuming what you mean but when I think of "most celebrated" I think of stuff like Taxi Driver and that's not about "visual over story" that's a character-driven movie where the events are tought out to serve the characterization. CSM still has the battle shounen thing going on so I don't think clusterfucking the plot so much works for it imo

not trying to justify retards that do that with women, but yes men absolutely do. some scrotes will chimp out when other men like shoujo or josei anime because it's "for women and therefore garbage" or some other similarly dumb scrote logic. there's a lot of moid infighting and gatekeeping regarding anime. I see them sometimes getting mad when other moids don't like manly anime like hokuto no ken and berserk because they think anything not comically manly is for sissies/troons or whatever. I also occasionally see them getting mad at women for watching manly and male-targeted anime because they say women can't relate to it/understand it or other equally dumb bs

Truly a very horny anime yet not in the way most anime is, without nudity, pantyshots, etc. but with good build up, voice acting (Hanae Natsuki did such an amazing job), OST, and visuals in general. Vanitas alone would be a reason to watch it. Him having a whole episode where he loses his shit over his feelings was so much fun to see after all the teasing he did. The chemistry between many of the characters is great, even the side characters are mostly fun.

I think CSM would have been better if Aki was the main character and the core of the story was his arc instead of Denji's.

The real reason why I hate her is just because the mangaka obviously has a fetish for femdom and Makima has been on his mind since he was a teenager because she is the embodiment of it. Feels disgusting to like a character the creator himself has most likely masturbated to countless times.

Disagree, first of all it’s an interesting sci fi world, where it’s not all about mecha or battle cosmoknights and it’s not a space opera. I like a lot of its ideas: climate change for an eternal summer, foldable underground city, concept of EVAs, which is unique and horrific, some clever tricks NERV would use in monster of the week battles.
It brings tokusatsu and kaiju into anime and doesn’t make it goofy, but use their rules, ideas and aesthetics more like midcentury cheap military monster b-movies (which very first kaiju movies was). So it wasn’t just funny special effects then, it relied to scifi literature aspects more and I like that.
Eva also tells us about your regular cast of scifi rescue mission - and doing it in detail. In anime (or in most of military scifi honestly) we could have either oh so brave heroes or just brutal-gar-manly-man-trauma. It shapes a portrait of a soldier, telling us what exactly made them like that and why are they doing what they are doing.
We also have a lot of female characters, their thoughts, stories, motives. It’s realy rare in scifi kek. We have three female scientists, one female military officer of a high rank, two female soldiers, who are also kids. And they all have believable personalities despite being also a fan service bait. It’s not like Gunbuster “Ima pilot bc idk”.
So if you are not a fan of, idk, shows like star trek, you can still enjoy depicting of characters and their relationships - they basically gave some meat to regular cardboards

Originally the manga was a satire to manga to like fist of the North Star. After that each other part has it’s own story with an overarching conflict in parts 1, 3, 6. Consider the other ones side stories of the original timeline.

How the fuck is JJBA is a satire? It's not even a parody, let alone a satire. The whole thing is a self-contained story that doesn't even use that many shonen manga cliches and instead create them or popularize them so you got it backward, it's just that Araki was a Hokuto no Ken fan. Some of you need to get a dictionary, ask for one for Christmas.

Be strong nonna, things will only start getting properly bizarre in the second part (I mean Battle Tendency, in the anime it's the second part of 1st season) and onward. I started with the first one like you and had to stop since I didnt feel it at all, accidentally ended up watching few episodes of Stardust Crusaders with my friend years later and it was a love at first sight, there's a lot more humor, exactly as you'd imagine there should be, if this is something you think is missing, you'll get it. First part is important to know the Joestar family / Dio Brando feud.

No. 262654

nona are you starting with part 1? Usually I see people recommend starting with Stardust Crusaders because part 1+2 is notoriously hard to watch kek. I wasn't a huge fan of Stardust Crusaders myself, but parts 4 and 5 were really good imo. They all tend towards absurd humor but at least in 4+5 the characters are more fleshed out, part 4 in particular almost feels like a slice of life anime at times kek

Love-potion-like power. Main character (teenage stright male) used in on a man with glasses (adult straight police detective), and detective used it on his own wife. Ranting character is a selfish social media influencer. She said that police guy obsessing over MC is hard to take, and she was called a homophobe by guy's wife. Later she admitted she want to use this power on rich men and that's why she sided with MC.
This manga is average, nothing special but not as bad as 1/10 reviews says.

If you simply want a more fashionable protagonist I have some recommendations.
Real Clothes-it's a very old 1990s feel josei. She starts off as a style-less saleslady to dressing up and climbing the ladder in their department. What I love about this author is the research in her works. It's very educational even mentions fast fashion and the struggle to compete with it, kek.

it's one of those semi-realistic uguu shows, this is how they treat an actual problem like alcoholism. even if the reason why the character became an alcoholic is realistic, the narrative treats it as if it's so cute and quirky even though she's causing actual trouble because of her drunkard antics and barely has any money because she spends it all on booze. a weird moe romanticization of alcoholism where nothing is done to help treat her addiction and instead they're like "hey alcohol will take all your problems and anxieties away"

Can anyone recommend me some animanga with well written female antagonists? I am a huge fan of Makima but recently I have been thinking that her motives aren't particularly interesting. I also dislike how she gets sexualized by everyone - whether be it Fujimoto, the animators or the fanbase.

Some personal favourites of mine are Higuchi from Freesia and Altair from Re:Creators. Ozen from MiA and Sanakan from Blame! are good too but they are minor antagonists.

I like female villains who are able to fuck shit up without their sexuality being involved. It is a little infuriating how many female villains(including Makima) have to seduce the MC. And upon defeat, they turn into some sort of a waifu.

(Sorry for CSM autism but I got really disapointed and this is the only place for me to post this)

What are anons' final impressions of chainsaw man anime? I thought it was really underwhelming and the whole "cinematic" approach was just not a good idea. I honestly wanna know what movies the director has been watching for him to think that "cinematic" is when there's no comedy or when the comedy is shit because the timing and delivery suck and when every color is muddy.
This might be stupid of me, but I've been bothered for a while that modern anime is often too "clean" and over detailed and doesn't experiment visually, and I thought chainsaw man would be the anime that could bring a more experimental and less clean style to the mainstream and maybe even start a trend, which would not only make anime more interesting to look at but also probably easier for the animators. Then the actual anime comes out, and not only did they do the exact opposite and do the most visually bland rotoscoped clean thing ever, but even the whole narrative aspect that made CSM feel original (the chaotic vibe) is removed. It really saddens me because I remember seeing an article about how even animators with decades of experience were having a hard time with modern anime wanting autistically detailed animation all the time. It's like MAPPA has a contract with the devil that if they don't force themselves to make 20 rushed adaptations every year and make the animators lives as hard as imaginably possible he will take 20 years out of their lives and murder their children. My fault for having high expectations.

Also, it's so weird to me how you can change the tone so much in such an overly faithful adaptation. If the director really wanted the anime to have a completely different feeling it makes no sense to adapt it almost panel for panel. At that point it would make more sense to just make shit up. This is exactly why people hated anime Kobeni. He took a character completely meant to be laughed at and changed absolutely nothing about her, but tried forcing the viewer to take her more seriously. Another thing is Himeno. I think the director thought Himeno didn't get enough time in the manga before being killed, so he wanted to give her a bit more screen time to make her death have more impact, which is fair enough, but he does this by having a bunch of flashbacks, showing her bumbling around her apartment and focusing multiple EDs on her, which actually adds NOTHING and just feels a bit preachy. If he was so desperate to make Himeno more fleshed out he could have made anime only scenes of her actually doing stuff with the other characters. A lot of animebros would have probably gotten really mad at this for being unfaithful, but it's what makes more sense to me with the approach the director took (which is already pretty unpopular anyways).

Tinfoil: this is the fault of those 2 hour youtube essays for making MAPPA think the main appeal was the 2deep4u story, so they thought it was a good idea to throw the whole dark humor and chaotic vibe completely in the trash and just make a super serious adaptation to focus on the plot.

I agree. I knew zero things about it beyond what the trailers showed. I didn't want anything more than some mindless action, violence, and gore and I got what I wanted. I dunno what's up with scrotes needing to argue that it's deep and meaningful. The only message it has is "sex is better with the people you know deeply" which is presumably absent in all the other crap like this. It's far from deep but scrotes are retarded and need to be told not to be diseased sluts.

It's definitely different to watch it as an anime only because it undeniably has production value, so I guess when detached from the manga it's just a bit bland and has some bad CGI. For manga readers the deal with it is that it genuinely (I promise this isn't autism overanalyzing) has a completely different mood, despite being almost completely accurate, so it's jarring to watch.
As other anons have said, CSM's plot was never "the most greatest thing ever made" like some people made it out to be, so when you adapt it in a super serious way that makes the focus go to the plot, then you're left with just "another shonen", which is fine, but very underwhelming. It's just weird to see a show get so overhyped and MAPPA putting so much production value into it just for it to be such an average bland show.

Speaking of /a/ spergging, what's been tripping me up lately is how I now can identify /a/tards in normie sites (insta, mal, etc) by them using retarded terminology, like calling the CSM anime "dishonest" (whatever the fuck that's supposed to mean, who the hell describes fictional media like that?), and I've seen some guy unironically call it "chainsoy man".

Did we watch the same anime?

Those aren't really weak reasons, just because they're not some vengeance mission to self destruct over doesn't make them weak. There's gotta be plenty of quality or loved anime with the two former character motivators. Those aspects are either the point or jokes, like Aki brooding like Sasuke.

Nonny, that meant that the other anon thought that aspect was very weak, not that it's literally not there, you're being obtuse.

>which is basically every moid ever anyway

I actually get this. Almost every single shounen has gross pervy characters, Denji not constantly groping unwilling women or creeping on random women not only makes him less gross than the majority of perv characters, but also better than a considerable ammount of real life teen moids that every girl is forced to deal with at some point. His pervyness is cringy, but the anime/manga being self-aware of it and there being worse moids in real life (as in, society treating it like a normal thing) makes him feel more harmless to me, especially when compared to shit like Mineta.

There's this new breed of anime fans which are so used to coomershit that if they encounter anything slightly "self-aware" it somehow becomes exempt from criticism.
CSW is same old, same old, except this time the mangaka has a femdom fetish instead of being into ryona and the usual groping. Meanwhile zoomers that are barely 18 and ageing out of entry level stuff they watched so far are eating it up because it's slightly quirkier, ironic and it feels more mature. Coincidentally lc gained a lot of users that fit into this demographic so it makes sense that people are suddenly butthurt about it here kek

I think that was a perfectly appropriate post, considering when women like male anime characters they like them for either their really positive traits that are rarely found in irl men, or ridiculously villainous characters which are totally unrealistic but can also be totally appealing because even villains can have great personality traits.
Meanwhile, if Denji is your husbando, well let's just say you won't have to try hard to find a Denji in real life at all which kind of defeats the point of falling in love with an idealized fictional character. Not saying women should date those types of men at all, but out of all magnificent anime husbandos it's totally fair to shit on someone for having shit taste.

No. 267334

Yeah I'm the one who made that comment for that reason. Denji is SO similar to real life moids, like what's even the fucking point. As you said a husbando is supposed to be idealized, if you're simping for a basic monkey brained coomer then people can shit on you for having bad taste

Just watched the first episode here are my thoughts:
>first ep follows the start of the game very closely
>switches between 2B pov and 9S pov
>pacing blends action scenes with quieter scenes seamlessly
>dialogue feels about as "anime" as it does in the game
>establishes and contrasts the differences in 2B's and 9S's characters through dialogue and action
>the 3D models are trying their best not to look distracting
>A1 Pictures delivers average modern day animation quality in the anime industry
>music taken straight from the original game sounding phenomenal as a background soundtrack
>2B's lolita dress looks as pretty as always!
>they flash her butt twice (I think?) in the fight scenes but it's subtle enough
>ends with pods puppet theater similar to how they talk to each other in their sequences in game and then another puppet theater with 2B and 9S explaining how the game has several endings in a comedic tone

Overall it looks quite similar to the game in terms of atmosphere, visuals and tone so if you liked the game definitely check it out! So far though it's just more of the same. I'm hoping they'll expand upon the story further and not just retell it directly even if that would make it less of a faithful adaptation.
But also even if you haven't played the game but you're into dystopian stories give it a try! I think this series will be welcoming to newcomers and old fans alike.

I've watched the first two episodes of Koori Zokusei Danshi to Cool na Douryou Joshi and it's cute as fuck especially Himuro, I love blushy, easily flustered guys. If you like romance animes I would highly recommend. It's technically not part of a specific demographic (the manga is a webcomic) but it's basically josei. So don't worry about it being scrotey.

I watched the first episode when it aired after having beat the game only about 4 months ago. I decided to wait until the entire season is out before watching any further. The first episode is identical the beginning of the game, so it’s kind of painful to watch at such a slow pace if the story is still fresh in your mind. I have heard that Yoko Taro said there would be deviations in the story, but not sure how drastic.

Maybe it is a bit of both. I thought the animation was not as strong but still nice. Glad others noticed it. Since this arc is slow, it could be that the pacing doesn't hold attention as well.

The top one is from the second season and the bottom from season 1. While I actually remember it looking better I think the art style is very similar during these non-action moments, but I noticed season 1 was less saturated in color, even outside this random screenshot that's happening during the dawn. The stronger colors make s2 look "cheaper" in comparison.
Season 1 also had a lot of pretty and wide nature shots while season 2 didn't leave this impression on me yet but it's only 3 episodes in.

I just finished another rewatch of Utena. Currently forcing my husband to watch Adolescence with me and I forgot how much I hated the movie. The visuals are beautiful but changing Anthy into a more sociable, happy girl rubs me the wrong way. In the series she was far more withdrawn from her peers for a reason. She's just a very complex character and she's written like that for a reason.

Late answer, but I was a huge fucking fan of Jojo since the I followed the 2012 anime weekly. Read almost all of the manga content within a month or so and was into a bunch of the characters, but the later parts somewhat killed my interest at some point and I absolutely hate the current artstyle and how much the later parts drag on, so I stopped after 7 and after I lurked in the part 8 threads for a longer while.
For me Jojo worked the best when it was shorter and more comedic/trashy and had proper beefcakes, alias Part 2. Still enjoyed the manga of 3, 4 and 6 a lot but it wasn't the same and I got tired at some point and the anime versions felt even slower. Not saying newer parts are worse, only talking about my personal taste.

Think in the end the season weaker as it felt like at first.
Still enjoying Revenger (like the action, wacky parts and the dues, especially the archer) and Vinland Saga s2 and I even prefer the anime version of ep. 1 here. The respective manga chapter was quite shallow and slap-sticky and I think that a tragic introspective approach worked much better for a series that starts with slave trade.

Everything else is mixed. Hikari no Ou ep. 1 was perfect, but 2 suffered from an absolutely horrible direction but I hope it was an exception, because the story, mood and world intrigue me.
Buddy Daddies 1+2 were a massive disappointment even for someone who didn't expect much. I didn't expect it to be anything but het, but I at least expected decent action and funny chemistries. Instead it's about a never-ending screaming brat, two guys that only talk to each other if they complain and the wacky action of a saturday's morning cartoon. Ep. 3 have some good scenes that prove that it could be so much more though.
The shoujo series with the elf guy looks pretty, but I don't like kabedon-tier romances so I dropped it.
Tsurune s2 is also super pretty but feels like a Free clone just with another sport.
Kaina and Trigun have potential but I don't like the CGI and the latest Kaina episode was irrelevant IMO. Trigun has the engaging MC, Kaina has the interesting worldbuiding.

What surprised me was the Judo anime Mou Ippon. Nothing spectacular, but I like artstyle and designs and the girls seem rather human instead of being moe ughuus.

I haven't watched the new Trigun, but did they replace Milly with a middle aged moid? I haven't seen her in any of the trailers and I'm kind of disappointed if that's the case.

This and the lack of chill episodes is my big complaint about the series so far, not even the CGI (which is cool for the action and BGs but bad for certain other things).
I really hope she will be part of it and just be introduced later, it would be a too odd choice to leave her out for no reason. Maybe the OC(?) guy dying or going home and being replaced by her would make sense, but no idea if it's what they are going for. Since an OC seems quite fishy.
I also wish there were some episodical parts at first like in the old anime. I kinda hate that they spoiled the twist right at the start because back then it was a huge reveal I didn't see coming after watching what was basically a chill wild west action show so far. There is no room to breathe in the new series but it's probably fault of the modern audiences that call everything filler if it doesn't progress the mainplot for a few minutes.

As a newfag to the gundam wing series, the prologue set my hopes up way too high.

I was a teenage girl when I watched it and I rewatched every scene with kaworu and shinji many times because fujo tendencies.
I also liked rei because she seemed emotionally closed off and did her job (relatable). sometimes it’s affirming to see people not happy and not getting along well so you know you’re not alone in feeling upset or having interpersonal problems (big themes for teenagers lol).

I recenty watched 3 anime movies. Two Mamoru Hosoda movies two days in a row. Mirai and Belle. I also watched In This Corner of the World.
I liked Mirai, it was cute. Reminded me of something I'd enjoy as a young child.
Belle felt pretty half assed. It was like a modern spin of Summer Wars and Bokura No War Game. I saw someone mention both Mirai and Belle didn't have the writer all the other Mamoru Hosoda movies has and Belle really stood out on that. One thing I hated of the concept in general was the reliability of social media and sponsorships and it being just so normal to immerse your physical self into the digital universe. At least in War Game, characters around them were freaked out when Tai and Matt entered their computers. Also one of the main plot devices of Belle was a ||doxing gun|| and an almost shot for shot Beauty and the Beast moment for 15 minutes. The singing was good. Overall, the concepts in the movie didn't hit me like other films of his.
In This Corner of the World was great. I thought this would've been some low quality slice of life film. Had me fuckin bawling.

Nonnas, what's your opinion on picrel, is it worth watching/reading ?

Yu Yu Hakusho is phenomenal. It's easily my favorite shonen series. You'll enjoy it.

Finished it myself recently for the first time, no nostalgia on my part. It definitely shows its age with pacing and writing choices but if you're a shounenfag like me you'll still find it entertaining. I still think its overrated in the community but the chemistry between the main cast is great and its kinda cool to see how Togashi's writing evolves over the course of the series.

I think most people say the manga is slightly better but I wouldn't know

loved it when i was a kid, but i don't think i'd have patience to watch it again

To be honest it's just OK. But I would watch it over literally any modern anime, it can't be compared to the stuff that's made now.

i'm watching nana for the first time ever, nonnies. i'm enjoying it immensely but at the same time the story feels so raw and real that i feel like finishing this show is genuinely gonna fuck me over. the fact that the manga isn't finished and probably never will be only adds to it.

i'm at the part where hachi takes nana to her hometown to watch the trapnest concert btw.

I watched it a long time ago on TV when I was in middle school and loved it. I think it's great until the arc with Sensui ends, then it feels like someone forced the story to persist and it turns out that it was the case with the original manga.

Urobuchi delivers again. Place your bets on who betrays who in the finale.

Yeah the lack of an actual ending will 100% leave you dissatisfied. The manga goes a bit past the show and I never understood why they didn’t give us those extra few episodes to at least catch up. There isn’t really another anime that hits like Nana that I know of (I tried hard to find one), but I enjoy Carole & Tuesday for more music and friendship themes.

The ending to that arc pissed me off especially because I feel like the build-up to it was 10/10 and the story was growing more complex in writing, but then the final fight dragged on with Sensui's schizo 8 personalities thing and then Yusuke's O MY DEMON DAD MY SPECIAL BLOOD.

Its ok though since YYH mistakes led to his magnum opus HxH

Loving this so much. You just know Usui has a fucked up history/dark secret and I'm really looking forward to finding out more
