Mind Game Anime Anonymous 11/13/2020 (Fri) 14:38:17 No. 275 [Reply]
I want some anime that have mind games as a major part of the show. I already watched Death Note, Code Geass, Hyouka, Classroom of the Elite, Kaiji, Akagi, No Game No Life (some of it was nonsense, but some of it was really impressive), The Promised Neverland, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (I am mentioning this one even though it wasn't mainly focused on mind games so nobody suggests it anyway), One Outs and Zankyou no Terror (it focused on mind games at the start). Please tell me of more mind game anime.

What are some anime/manga that are impossible to find subbed in English? There are a lot of obscure children's anime that subbing groups from 08 and below attempted to sub, but ultimately gave up because of shitty bandwidth and shitty Japanese. It's no surprise that kid's shows like Kaiketsu Zorori are only noticed by pants shitting furries in the west, but there are still so many Japan-exclusive kiddie shows that will never get subbed. Even big names like Shin-chan never get any English translations outside of the 90s-early 2000s episodes.
>>265 I'm very surprised that Doctor Slump only has subs for like 50 episodes or something like that. I'd have thought that with Dragon Ball autism, someone would get autistic enough to sub the entire series about that one character that shows up in two episodes of Dragon Ball. I've started watching it recently, but am going slow, hoping by the time I catch up, someone will sub a couple more episodes.
>>265 Hard to find certain anime torrent batches but often nowadays more anime are getting official english releases. However a lot of them are from Funimation & people shouldn't give them money.
I can't find subs or even RAWs of Croket anywhere online

What Animu Are You Watching? Anonymous 05/02/2020 (Sat) 21:16:19 No. 10 [Reply]

Just watched Deca Dence. I both hate and love the MC, Kaburagi's a bro, and the robots pickaxing monster feces and drinking monster shit booze was amusing and hot

Went through the Project A-ko series for the first time in ages; it's hard to watch the fourth one now without yelling about the jews every half minute.

Shugo Chara Fashion Anonymous 10/16/2020 (Fri) 22:12:43 No. 269 [Reply]
I just love some of Amu Hinamori's outfits, particularly the ones where a short skirt or dress is frilly. I also like her short shorts and tie outfit. It looks both smart and casual at the same time. Shugo Chara has the best fashion in all the anime I have seen.
I really like the formal shirt and the frilly short black skirt.
>>269 I remember this anime, it was pretty fashy, I like how boys were cute traps too. Boys should be able to dress cute, at least, while they can pull it off nya~

I Need Some Loli Ecchi Loli Ecchi 08/18/2020 (Tue) 04:50:46 No. 197 [Reply]
I am looking for some loli ecchi. I watched all of Kodomo no Jikan and Moetan (and KissxSis, but that's not focused on lolis), and now I need some more. I would prefer the fanservice to be from lolis in compromising positions and revealing clothes (and swimsuits) rather than innuendo towards sex acts (i.e. pretending a plastic tube with milk is a semen-filled condom). Please give me some good ecchis, thank you.

>>261 The fanservice is very good, but the best thing about Prisma Illya is that even without any fanservice it would still be both a great mahou shoujo anime and a pretty good FATEfag anime. I highly recommend it to anyone.
>>261 >I particularly like loli bum and lolis going commando and enjoying the wind down there. In that case, definitely watch Astarotte no Omocha.
>>263 I finished the anime. Should I read the manga as well, and if so, where from? How does its loli fanservice relate to the anime's (better, worse, same)?

I very much enjoyed this show. Everything was very cute and comfy. Second season when?

>>257 It was actually so good! I though tit was pretty poopy and generic at first but then by episode 3 I knew what it was up to and everything got ultra super mega final turbo galactic comfy. Season 2 confirmed so it's just a matter of time now but already I can't WAIT for more character songs by Kyaru

>>254 That's not a claim. That's what they literally do.
>>254 Love that CrunchyDick huh?
>>256 No, but I'd rather have some independent fansubbers (or legitimate translators) making proper translations, even though some group is probably just going to come along in the future and do the exact same thing, as per >>252. But I'd personally rather see CrunchyRoll torn down and some reasonable people that actually care about the product they're putting out. I think it's been made obvious over the past few years that, despite all the PR they do, CR has long since stopped caring about anime and just cares about corporate profits.

Now that the dust has settled, can we all agree that this was the greatest ecchi manga ever written?

Post about a series that you just finished Anonymous 07/29/2020 (Wed) 17:37:30 No. 181 [Reply]
Time to make this thread again. Here's an archive of the last thread on 8kunt: https://archive.vn/EAtrt So, I decided to drop UFO Senshi Dai Apolon after 17 episodes. It's not a bad series, it's okay, but I just grew bored with the show. The premise is that Takeshi is the prince of a planet that was conquered by the Dazaan Army, and was sent to Earth as a baby in order to ensure his survival. He then grows up in an orphanage, and gains a passion for American football while living there. Then, on his 16th birthday, he is struck by a meteor that imbues him with the Key Energy power that his planet's people had developed as their "ultimate weapon". Takeshi and his friends are then abducted by his guardian, Rabi, who informs him of his origin and gives him and his friends a giant robot, Dai Apolon, and several UFOs in order to fight off the Dazaan Army and protect the Key Energy that now reside within Takeshi. The rest of the series then details the Dazaan Army's various attempts to gain the Key Energy along with trying to figure out the true identity Dai Apolon's pilot. The series boils down to three different episode were something effects the "UFO Boy Scouts" on a personal level, some outsider gets involved in the fights, or the leaders of the Dazaan Army are trying out one of their various "just created" super-weapons to defeat Dai Apolon. It's pretty formulaic, and it just feels like an attempt to sell toys. There are some moments in the series were it does decide to get a little bit more "mature" with it's premise as innocent people are dying during some of the episodes, but it feels like it's there just to be there and show how "evil" the villains are (As if mass genocide and enslavement across the galaxy wasn't reason enough). And, the show never really moves beyond that. There are a few times were the Dazaans do some espionage and end up kidnapping the wrong people thinking they have times to Dai Apolon, along with some general rivalries and tensions taking place within the various generals of the Dazaan Army, but it never really moves beyond that or does anything unique with it. As for the animation, the art is fine but the show feels very stilted and limited in it's animation. And, with the audio, there really isn't much music to speak of, the sound effects are great, but all the voices sound like the characters are always shouting no matter what they say. Overall, I wasn't really that impressed with UFO Senshi Dai Apolon. Like I said, it isn't a bad series, but I just grew too bored with it to the point that I didn't care about finishing it off.

>>220 No anon you're retarded. Zeta is very important to show Char's development to why he's doing what he does. He fought against an even worse more oppressive branch of the Earth Federation & met firsthand with the spoiled elite of the Earth Federation government. Plus the feeling of all his friends & allies dying in the final battle. Unable to know what's become of Kamille but no doubt felt something was wrong. Then ZZ further showed just how incompetent & uncaring the EF really are. Not just to colonies but their own people on earth. That was to show just how corrupt the earth truly is. Char isn't doing something out of malice. He's doing it to save the earth from the uncaring masses of humanity's "elite" still there.
So, I just finished off Renkin 3 Kyuu Magical? Pokaan, and it is a very enjoyable series. The premise is that four princesses from a world of monsters are transported to Japan, and the show is just about their daily lives living on Earth. Nothing else more complex, and let me show you the door if you have a problem with that. The show is extremely laid back, and it's just fun and hilarious to watch the girls living life with little to no problems. The animation for the show is simple and silly to fit with the nature of the stories. And, the audio gives the show this extremely comfy feel. Overall, I would recommend this series to just about anyone who wants a relaxing show or just wants to be entertained. While extremely simple, I'd say it's one of the best anime out there.
Finally actually sat down & watched Gundam F91 all the way through. I ended up liking it despite initial impressions being poor. Partly because of bad subs I downloaded but also because it's noticeable that it's a bit unfinished in some areas. But overall I think it's still an enjoyable experience & Gundam movie. Iron Mask is a pathetic villain though. If he's supposed to be a Char clone just because he has a mask then he's probably the worst UC Char clone.

Post all small questions here that do not warrant their own thread. I am reading Dagashi Kashi, but a complete torrent for all the chapters does not seem to exist; furthermore, Emblem scans has only stranslated up to c162 so far. Does anyone have an archive of the manga?

What Comics Could Learn From Manga Anonymous 05/20/2020 (Wed) 18:36:43 No. 92 [Reply]
Thread for people who collect Western comics who are looking to get into manga I will describe some advantages that manga has over comics: >With manga, the events in the world have lasting impacts and ramifications on the world and setting >The narrative is much more streamlined and accessible >There is a definitive end point in sight by and large >The characters actually undergo development rather than reverting to archetypes >With manga, the writer by and large is the same and there is no jarring transitions between creative direction >No lazy exposition in marketing >No confusing numbering system or continuous resets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3mwPJqyYZ8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VapC7yiWbfI
