I never have the motivation to watch anime. I enjoy watching it, but it feels like a chore, especially when I think of all those 50+ episode series I have yet to watch.
Does anyone else feel this way?
I have that all the time. The worst is before the watching, the putting yourself to it. Once you're in you're in for a hour at least. I gotta watch some more anime and read more manga soon
I frequently find myself in the same situation. The worst part is that I know that so many of the series on my backlog would be really amusing or interesting if I could just get around to watching them, or just as bad: that so many shows on my backlog are just going to be average and that I'll feel compelled to watch them anyway since they've been on my backlog for so long.
I like Wakfu, but it's on at 7:30am weekdays so some days i miss an ep due to not waking up early enough ^^
And they play sooo many ads =.
I'm sometimes like this, but I have an obsession with multitasking, so usually I watch an anime episode if I'm eating or doing something monotonous, so I end up watching an anime episode every day! This way also helps me watch boring anime that I still want to finish.
I barely watch anything nowadays. I used to watch tons of stuff back when torrenting and streaming still felt like a novelty (for whatever reason) until around 2007 or so. After that, I've only watched a few select shows since then.
Ever since I started reading visual novels around 4 years ago, I barely ever watch anime at all.
I've had a pretty hard time myself getting into anything lately. I watched about 10 episodes of KanColle as it was coming out.
Having a hard time feeling special about anything lately...
Because I'm so busy at school, I can only spend a limited time on watching anime each week. That's why I tend to watch episodic anime with 100+ episodes more than seasonal anime. I always lose track of seasonal anime because of the intervals between each episode.
Saekano - 00 (How to Train the Ordinary Girl to be a Heroine)
Story: "A highschool otaku named Aki Tomoya runs into his dream girl one day... only to find that she has the faintest presence to his chagrin! Now with his otaku passions, Tomoya wants to turn the girl into a heroine in the only realm he is familiar with: 2D dating simulation game. To accomplish this objective, he scouts Eriri Spencer Sawamura, his half-foreigner childhood friend equipped with artistic talent, as the illustrator, and Kasumigaoka Utaha, a famous prodigy writer, as the script writer."
Genre: From lofty dreams to humble reality.
Comments: Looking good.
It's a tough job to make the girl you like to become your super-heroine, when she is not interested in the slightest, and all the other girls are better choices.
This a job for... super-otaku!
Maria and Yuri Kuma seem the most promising.
Military! - 10/10, masterpiece of theater.
Re-Kan! - 01
"Hibiki Amami, who has just transferred to a new school, has a sixth sense that allows her to perceive (and interact with) spirits and understand what animals are saying. No one else at her new school can, but after a few days that ceases to bother three girls Amami befriends, who just accept it as a matter of course. It really irritates class rep Narumi Inoue, though, as she hates anything related to the occult and refuses to accept it."
Slice of ethereal life.
Hmm... I wonder if that grandma-ghost is a returnee waiting for Narumi to settle with a nice guy so that grandma can pick up a body to reincarnate into. But if Narumi goes the yuri route with Hibiki, grandma could wait for a very long time! :)
Plastic Memories - 01
"In a future not too far away, androids that look exactly like humans begin to spread across the world. The android production company SAI Corp. produced Giftia, a new kind of android that has the most amount of emotion and human-like qualities out of any other model ever seen. However, due to problems in technology, the androids have a service life, and once they pass that, it gets pretty bad."
Slice of replicant life.
Nice art and animation, emotions and humor.
Hmmm... "Androids loaded with synthetic souls, which only SAI has successfully developed"?
How do we know if those souls are really "synthetic"?
I have a bad feeling...

Seraph of the End 01
"After an unknown virus wiped out all adults on earth, vampires appeared and ruled over the surviving children, treating them like livestock. Yuichiro Hyakuya survived along with other orphans by giving their blood to vampires..."
Inexplicable plane crashes, unchecked pandemics, children abductions, all to feed a bunch of semi-immortal vampires: welcome to planet Earth! And the ultimate solution is: go back to school and get more knowledge, chillun.
Punch Line - 01
"Bus hijack, saved by orange motorcycle-riding chick jumping through the windshield and beating people up with a giant bendy straw, then a boy (Yuuta Iridatsu) gets superpowers from seeing pantyshots, then he's a ghost, then he accidentally wipes out humanity twice, then he's living in an apartment..."
Treasure quest with one's own body at stake.
My kind of anime! Good animation, nice art, provocative themes dashed out with a worldwide brush, babes by the bucketloads... I'm sold. More!
Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches - 01
"Ryu Yamada is known as a delinquent in his high school; he has been bored of classes after one year of attending school. One day, he accidentally falls from a flight of stairs onto Urara Shiraishi, the ace student of the school. Yamada wakes up to find that he has swapped bodies with her. The two try to reverse the change and discover that kissing triggers the body swap. On the suggestion of student council vice-president Toranosuke Miyamura, they revive the Supernatural Studies Club."
Bodyswap school comedy.
Nice to see the manga in colors and in motion, well done.
I liked the manga at the beginning, but couldn't follow it anymore when CR took over.

Please allow to be clumsy English.
randomly finding this thread while searching for Kikkoman Fight has unleashed a wave of nostalgic nostalganess so, for the no people that go here, I shall pay you back in the form of several youtube videos I found.
It's almost September. What are you going to pick up next season? I'm very excited for the baseball anime

I'm picking up:
Kill la Kill
Pupa looks interesting
Non Non Biyori is very good.
When the hell are pupa, Lupin and Neppu going to air? I've almost forgotten about them
wow I'm stupid
Lupin will air on 15th November, Neppu will air this winter and pupa this fall but I'm not sure when
You know, overall I think it was a good season.
How can I contact the moderator of this site to report abuse and illegal activity? Thanks!
The mod is a lie.
I want to watch that "cute girls eating food" show from SHAFT.
Cross Ange is pretty nice.
we have just started a new non-profit anime video site to benefit childhood cancer research:
Interesting. Audio encoding is pretty terrible, but video is definitely watchable.
I honestly could not understand Team4Mars without the subtitles on the film itself, but I really would not mind a dub with Ken Watanabe's voice. Then again, I always watch sub where possible, so my opinion isn't worth much.
real good cean! real good cean!
what is cool SHIRATAMA-KUN!
I LOVE YOU!!
I LOVE YOU!!!!

yeah. . .
please answer question. . .
A Japanese slang term (ironically, first employed by otaku) used to refer to the fetish for or sexual attraction to idealized people, usually a fictional perfect young girl.
Since then, moé has come to be used as a general term for a hobby, mania or fetish (non-sexual or otherwise). This is contrasted with otaku, which would be taking the specific hobby, mania or fetish to harmful levels.
clumbsy with long hair and big breasts (extra points if they wear glasses)
they're typically really shy
I think of Miyuki or Mikuru usually
Moe, is a thing that turns guys into pedos
Buddy Complex - 01
Story: "On the first day back after summer break, high-school student Aoba is attacked by a giant robot that appears out of the sky. As he's pursued through the city, his classmate Hina appears in a robot of her own. She rescues him, and tells him cryptically that "Dio is waiting for you," before she disappears. This begins Aoba's new life as the pilot of the Free Treaty Alliance against the Great Zogiria Republic."
Genre: Giant robots wars.
Comments: Single linear timeline hypothesis? Looks like sci-fi from the 60ties.
The characters also look somewhat retro.
From an old manga? Mmh... No, supposedly it's an original creation.
Let me see what happens after the time jump.
- Mincing reviews -
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji 01: weak M_girl meets weak S_boy, dipped in weak shojo sauce. A wolf who cried woof.
Grisaia no Kajitsu 01: Huge empty school, with only 1 guy + 5 girls. No wonder that world is so barren if they are all hitmen/women.
World Trigger 01: Living near a dimensional vortex is bad, but the local school bullies are even worse. What, fighto? Yeah, yeah.
Sora no Method 01: Friends and aliens reunited after a long time apart. Time to shed a tear, or two.
- Boy-meets-boy reviews -
Donten ni Warau 01: Law-enforcer brothers, under the ominous shadow of a nasty prison in the Meiji old days. So bloody bromantic!
Orenchi no Furo Jijou 01: Manly man meets fabulous merman. Bathtub-sharing BL.
Kaitou Joker 01: Phantom thief, with a ninja doing the cooking. Kid stuff.
Inou Battle wa Nichijou-kei no Naka de - 01 (When Supernatural Battles Became Commonplace)
"Six months ago, the five-member literature club all awakened superpowers. Unfortunately this has not led to them having anything else interesting happen in their lives, like epic battles or saving the universe. They go about their ordinary lives, just happening to have superpowers, waiting for the call to battle to finally happen - assuming it ever comes at all."
Chuuni club activities.
Ah, this one has good potential.
The first episode was weak ("This universe originated 13.7 billions years ago"? Not even wrong.), but I have great hope. Let's see how it develops.

Gugure! Kokkuri-san 01: Playful male silver-haired magical fox? Lonely shut-in girl? Wishful shojo, with a large dose of acid humor.
Trinity Seven 01: Rounding up the usual suspects, one smart alec and his seven witches. At the local magic school, of course.
Akatsuki no Yona 01 + Cross Ange 01: Pampered princess. Rotting kingdom. Coup d'etat. Time for a gruesome reality check and... a tomboy haircut!

Hi-sCoool! SeHa Girl 01: Sega showroom, reusing old 3DCG moves.
Garo 01: Witch-hunters are demons eating people and shapeshifting into their human forms. Medieval fantasy... or is it?
Parasyte 01: Guy gets a morphing lifeform into his hand instead of his brain. Resigned, the parasite morphs into a symbiote.
Daitoshokan no Hitsujikai 01: Bookworm is not interested in girls, only books. Alas, this is from an erogame, so... But don't worry, there will be no sex scenes!
Nanatsu no Taizai 01: Goku/Meliodas and Bulma/Elizabeth begin their search for the 7 dragonballs/Taizai. Similar artstyle, too.

Girl Friend Beta 01: A promo for some dating-sim? The girls were speaking sooo slooowly, I thought it was a practice-your-Japanese lesson. Beta indeed.
Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru - 01:
"Yuna, Mimori, Fu, and Itsuki are all members of the Sanshu Middle School Hero Club, dedicating themselves to helping those that requested. One day, they are suddenly caught in a ray of light and transported to a strange forest, where evil monsters known as Vertex are seeking to destroy Shinju-sama, which would in turn destroy the world. Using a special app to transform into magical girls, Yuna and the others must now become true heroes in order to protect their world."
Magical girls saving the world app.
Wait, if the whole classroom is in zero-time, the heroes shouldn't be able to move either. Unless there was an EM Field around them. Generated by that cellphone's app they all had to download earlier? But then, when they move around, the cell should reactivate the ones who are near the field, like in The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Skyward_Sword. Unless, the app is shaping the EMF to only follow the owner of the cell?
Fancy. Ok, where can I download it?
