So a new Haruhi light novel recently came out and i hope this means that sometime in the future we get season 3. ITT post/discuss anything Haruhi related.

Zero no Tsukaima is the best isekai anime (7)

1 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-23 11:28 ID:nyEO7anJ

it is literally the work that inspired virtually all modern isekais and yet it was better than them, the anime adaptation was inferior to Novel but still is a good choice for those who want to start watching anime. what do you think about it?

Well he was not wrong, on the anime Saito is very "non-sentient" but in the novels he is a little better.

NHK ni yōkoso. (9)

1 Name: : 2020-09-11 09:10 ID:iwInkIW2 This thread was merged from the former /anime/ board. You can view the archive here.

Is NHK ni yōkoso the most relatable anime ever?

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2020-09-21 16:22 ID:8ZPerhTx

It's a pretty good comedy anime, especially if you watch the ENG dub

3 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2020-09-23 03:38 ID:iwInkIW2

>>2
The English dub is just okay in my opinion.

4 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2020-09-23 12:55 ID:8ZPerhTx

>>3
There's no five star acting in it, but that's part of what makes it so funny. In Japanese, Sato has a "cool guy" voice, some in Japan would even consider it a handsome voice. In the ENG dub his voice just sounds funny. And of course the added swears are more hard hitting than the subs (which are actually inaccurate translations if you own the DVDs). If you've never watched the entire dub, just think of a scene you thought was kind of funny and then watch the dubbed version of it. You'll end up seeing something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLnagfwTwKo

I think in Japanese Sato sounds kike a ladies man while in English he sounds more like a screwed up unemployed shut-in which he is of course and that doesn't surprise me that the subtitles are incorrect and yeah i own the DVD.

The Netflix adaptation meme is true. Netflix censored it.

  1. Manga: Good, it spawned some old 4chan meme(s) I think
  2. Anime: Good animations but crappy renamings of characters
  3. Netflix version: same as the original anime but blood/gore and possibly-perceived-as-politics is censored - https://archive.org/details/DhUwTTEHDhmpaLVy

I found this Spanish subtitles of "The Light Of Tsukimi Manor" manga: DDG search > https://pastebin.com/A3TmGzeP > http://www.mediafire.com/?jur5umzhl1gmhvc > http://www.mediafire.com/file/jur5umzhl1gmhvc/The_Light_Of_Tsukimi_Manor.rar/file > http://download856.mediafire.com/eiqohaw3k8rg/jur5umzhl1gmhvc/The+Light+Of+Tsukimi+Manor.rar

It's gotta happen sooner or later, maybe they're waiting for the series to end first? How many more volumes is that guy supposed to churn out before they start drawing storyboards?

Anyway, it's a good idea; I'd pirate it... hell, I might even buy it.

Kiyohiko Azuma (東清彦 or あずまきよひこ Azuma Kiyohiko?), born May 27, 1968 in Takasago, Hyōgo Prefecture, is a Japanese manga author and illustrator. In his manga, he writes under the hiragana form of his name. He used to use the pen name Joji Jonokuchi (序ノ口譲二 Jonokuchi Jōji?) in his hentai manga, though he appears to have ceased drawing adult works in the 1990s, while he was still relatively obscure. He graduated from Hyōgo Prefectural Kakogawa East High School and Kobe Design University.

His most well-known work is Azumanga Daioh. His current series is Yotsuba&!, which is serialized monthly in Dengeki Daioh magazine. Other works of his include dōjinshi involving characters from Neon Genesis Evangelion, Sailor Moon, Tenchi Muyo!, and Battle Athletes, among othe

36 Name: Kiba Inu : 2007-08-30 02:59 ID:P896R4h1

I think it'd be better off just as a manga. It seems that it's kind of comedy is more for manga culture. I also didn't think that the anime of Azumanga Daioh was as satisfying as the manga. This may just be me though...

37 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-08-30 04:52 ID:1rvi+L2E

>>36

I think the adaptation of AD was very faithful to its original Yonkoma, so maybe when you saw the adaptation, it didn't have the same impact that it had on me, since I saw it before reading the yonkoma. However, once I picked up a volume of that manga in the bookstore, I had the same reaction you had towards the anime.

Although they did have to cut some very good scenes for the television adaptation. Chose your evil, I say.

38 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2014-04-19 10:32 ID:Heaven

Seven years later and still no sign that a Yotsuba anime is in the works.

[News] Despera still in development! [Optimism] (2)

1 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-25 01:21 ID:bZl1iAKQ

I only recently discovered that Despera is still in production and is actually mostly complete, with an announcement planned for sometime in 2022.

I remember being absolutely crushed when Ryutarou Nakamura died way back in 2013 and thinking that this would never see the light of day. But it looks like there is still hope. Can't get enough of anything Yoshitoshi ABe is involved in, but it especially fills me with joy to think that the SEL Team's final project is still ongoing. I can wait a little longer.

What studio is awesome/sucks and why? (8)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2014-09-19 19:35 ID:GgDC/VHn This thread was merged from the former /anime/ board. You can view the archive here.

I often read something like XX-studio sucks but because I often don't notice which studio produces which anime so seldom do I know what they're talking about. I'd like to read some opinions, any opinions. Also what do you think about Shaft? (I love Monogatari series)

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2021-01-21 08:10 ID:dVhjOp8f

I like the Shaft head tilt and I do it in real life sometimes, not as a reference I just happen to tilt my head that way

me too, the shinbo style of direction and animation is very unique and interesting.

5 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-25 01:07 ID:9fWvHZZD

Everything old-school Gainax I have seen has blown me away. Stuff like Otaku no Video, Daicon MV, FLCL, Cutie Honey, Eva, PSG, TTGL,
I haven't watched anything that recent but it seems like a lot of the same minds went on to work at TRIGGER, and you really get a sense of the same style and love in work like Promare & Luluco. Seems clear they love what they do.

6 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-25 02:07 ID:gITyYhk4

PSG and TTGL are "old-school Gainax" now? What a world we live in.

I like Tezuka Productions. Even the light novel shit they suddenly started working on since 2018 still has some of the old Dezaki touch.

7 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-25 11:36 ID:fqPCQ/nS

Well, Another Gainax anime that I consider as old-school as the ones mentioned is Mahoromatic (even though it was produced in partnership with Shaft), man this anime marked me deeply.

8 Name: 5 : 2021-03-25 19:21 ID:Heaven

>>7
good pick, I forgot about mahoromatic

>>6
I'll be honest, "old-school" == "I haven't watched anime in years and idk what they are up to now". It looks like they are basically a shell company for licensing now though and all the creative minds have up and left

Very hyped for the remake, too bad it will be only on consoles for now.

4 Name: Anonymous Otaku : 2021-03-24 10:30 ID:Wjx9DWdk

the remake will probably look something like mahoutsukai no yoru (which has an incredible use of special effects - not sure I want an entire VN of those but the battle scenes are amazing)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEVJp7k_ijA

The effects may be similar but i think it will tone down a little in comparison to Mahoutsukai no Yoru.

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2013-09-29 22:17 ID:Heaven

huh, well that twist at the end was a surprise

8 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2013-10-15 19:24 ID:RVvRJAAP

Has anyone noticed that AoT's plot is essentially that of Doom: Repercussions of Evil?

Eren Jaeger waited. The 3DMGs around him blinked and sparked out of the air. There were titans inside the walls. He didn’t see them, but had expected them now for years. His warnings to Cernel Darius were not listenend to and now it was too late. Far too late for now, anyway.
Eren was a 104th Corpse graduate for four years. When he was young he watched the soldiers and he said to mom “I want to be in the Survey Corps mommy.”
Mom said “No! You will BE KILL BY TITANS”
There was a time when he believed her. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in the forest beyond the walls he knew there were titans.
“This is Darius” the radio crackered. “You must fight the titans!”
So Eren gotted his sword and cut down the forest.
“HE GOING TO KILL US” said the titans
“I will eat him” said the female titan and she chomped at him with her teeth. Eren sworded at her and tried to cut her neck. But then the tree fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
“No! I must kill the titans” he shouted
