Ojamajo Doremi (2)

1 Name: doremi_jeggings : 2019-03-17 21:24 ID:/IjFYs0Q

Doremi's more popular in Japan/Spain and it's been that way since the show's existence, but recently I've noticed it becoming more popular with westerners (mostly on [s4s] and in mahou shoujo/precure circles). From the looks of things it won't be too long before e-celebs make youtube video essays (ex: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_Bkfa2K7f4) about it and the fans increase even more.

That being said, what does 4ch think of doremi? Personally it's my favorite magical girl anime/anime in general. Good music, good characters, cute art style, etc.

It's a stylistic treat, and it reeks of Earthbound.

Do you think Mob plays with his weiner with telekinesis?

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2019-02-18 21:29 ID:LNC5fNHv

I wouldn't be surprised if he tried it, but I don't think you could do anything with telekinesis to a weiner besides helicoptering.

8 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2019-02-24 07:25 ID:kXIju2Gk

Do you think there's anyone out there in this universe who made his specialty 'wiener'? An example would be: "special tk wang bang" which they would yell prior to attacking. A theoretical application of this attack, which would involve focusing ones tk power though said wang, would be a focused attack onto a singular target for massive damage. Also how would this person deal with the social ramifications of using ones dong as a method of attack? Why would this person even choose to focus his tk powers though his peen? Is he just a massive degenerate pervert?

Isn't mob psycho another overrated shonen battle animu? What makes it different from jojo, dbz, one punch, etc

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2019-03-17 00:59 ID:ROaSRcYT

I would not compare either Mob Psycho or One Punch man to a battle shonen. OPM is structured as a comedy first and foremost. A parody of the genre you're suggesting. In Mobs case battles are not the focus of the story in the least. OPM is a parody, Mob is narrative is not focused on battles at all.

So not really.

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2019-02-20 04:44 ID:io3mO5MK

the show was very average. keeping in mind that i didn't FINISH the series, i disliked how the screamo bits were such an important plot point (i feel it stops being "death metal" as she refers to it once the lyrics boil down to crying into a pillow) while i enjoyed the character progression such as boss pig showing a less hardass side (that quickly changed) or the deer becoming more than just a simple asskisser. in fact i think the character progression is the BEST part of the show, all the characters got nice personalities except retsuko and the hyena which i simply cannot stand for several reasons

Why is anime so pedophilia now? (15)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2016-06-09 05:43 ID:EwJhzsi8

Anyone else notice that? Makes me not want to watch anime..

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-05-23 18:02 ID:Heaven

>1

It's anything but now. The golden age of cute anime was 2007-2011-ish. Shows like Moetan or Skygirls? There's nothing modern and comparable to that.

All relevant modern animes (think No Game No Life, or Re:zero...) have a loli as a stock character, but there's no single anime purely dedicated to the trope.

All you get is politically correct, C+ cup moeshit.

Why is there so much pedophilia in anime now?
Now?

Did you see your first anime in the last year or something?

Maybe it just seems like there's more 'pedophilia' coming from Japan because people are largely oblivious to how prevalent sex crimes committed against children are in their own countries. Seriously.

Unlike many countries in the west with chronic problems with pedophilia - Japan largely abides by the age of consent rules. If you look at crime statistics, Japan is typically ranked 50th or lower for ALL sex crimes INCLUDING pedophilia related crimes. The US, UK, etc are keeping it classy in the top 10 to 20 for most sex crimes committed.

One of those differences is that Japan allows for the outlet of undesirable sexual attraction through fiction - lolicon culture, underage characters, fictional pornography etc.
The west on the other hand won't even allow abuse of fiction children to occur in peoples imaginations - it's repressed to the point that quite a few people snap and go after real children instead.

11 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2018-02-11 22:51 ID:rRq9GjL/

actually, I like moe and lolis, so this isn't a problem for me

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2018-02-28 03:13 ID:3cw9wDPH

Since the 'lolicon' culture started to be spread (thanks to the internet that created an entire culture around that and treated it as a normal thing), animes with lots of sexual content involving children or people that look underage have been the most profitable. Japanese people also lack some sense of morality, which is why most of them will produce anything that gives money.

The animated movies industry, however, hasn't been that affected by the 'lolicon' culture. In This Corner of the World, Kimi no Na Wa and Koe no Katachi were produced recently and are great movies. That's why I don't watch many TV series but still watch movies very often.

I wouldn't rely on sex crime statistics being accurate. Counties that take sex crime more seriously are going to both enforce it better and make victims feel safer about coming forward. Japan really discourages women from reporting sexual harassment and so on.

15 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2019-02-18 22:43 ID:qKVtbkFG

>>14
So what are you supposed to base anything on, if you say the numbers lie? I highly doubt that "anyone that draws/reads loli, they must all be pedophiles" is accurate. You would have to move into changing their culture completely if you wanted them to "more accurately" report their crimes.

For example, assuming >>0's favorite was Looney Tunes: That's not an anime, dumbshit. However, it is crippled by lack of a central plot, nonexistant character development, and inability to focus on a single set of characters.

My fave: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

Leiji Matsumoto - A Fucking Legend (7)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-08-12 06:08 ID:zEeFDG2C

It kills my how underrated Leiji Matsumoto is in the west (well, the USA and anglosphere mostly, considering that Harlock is a legend in the francophone sphere, along with shit like Queen Millennia in Germany and shows in Italy).

I can't stand fags who think anime like Cowboy Bebop is ancient, when Matsumoto's space operas from the 70s are fucking great. Galaxy Express 999 was questioning the eternal life that transhumanists want now - deep, disturbing shit that really sticks with you, with tales of the ennui and horror of machine immortality. GE999 TV is amazing shit, and people FFS get over the prejudice against Leiji's "potato head" way of drawing people (his women are beautiful anyways - hello Maetel!).

If they ever carve a Mount Rushmore of anime, it will have Tezuka, Miyazaki, and Matsumoto for sure.

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2017-10-02 01:29 ID:r7FvYBvY

I've said similar before. He's one of the classics, which is the very reason they don't know him. Consider that a good amount if not a majority haven't seen ANY series from the 1970s, and these tended to have certain themes that are different from what a modern audience is used to, even if some of them are akin to blueprints for what followed. It feels anachronistic, take for example Gun Frontier, or Endless Odyssey. These while being modern anime still remain old-fashioned. Only a certain type of person is attracted to that, very much the classic otaku.

The potatohead style was mostly a product of the era, when artists were still drawing after a certain comic aesthetic.

I've got a huge backlog of his works, perhaps I'll return and post my thoughts when the time comes.

Let's replace Miyazaki with Nagai.
Anyway, the only Matsumoto show I've seen so far is Space Battleship Yamato, but it's awesome. One of my all-time favorites.

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2018-12-07 21:31 ID:DmsBWNeW

I like that he's not well-known, imagine if all those ironic weebs watched some of his works. They'd be completely unable to understand the underlying themes of his works, or have the patience for it.

>>4
Yamato is brilliant, it's one of my favourites too. I'd recommend Space Pirate Captain Harlock, another space anime by Matsumoto. Very similar feel to Yamato.

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2018-12-10 06:06 ID:hIYsFj2d

I just rented the original Harlock from the library because I've never finished it. The downside of your point about it remaining obscure is that it was actually relatively hard to find until the dvd set was released recently. I also heartily recommend it, it's one of my favorites.

Gun Frontier is a Harlock spinoff set in the Old West, also worth a look.

I like Konata because she is a otaku like me, except she has friends. Oh god I wish I had friends too ;_;

Konata also likes videogames and she is kawaii. And there are lesbians in the show and that's good because I like lesbians and I will never have a girlfriend. Why am I such a loser?!

Konata is like my dreamgirl she has a :3 face I love that. She is also nice why aren't real girls nice!? I got dumped a lot of times but I love konata and she wouldn't dump me because she's so nice and cool.

We would play videogames all day and watch Naruto and other cool animes on TV, and I would have sex with her because sex is so good. I wish I could have sex with a girl.
