I am an old fag. Today I decided to compile a playlist of all my favorite anime. I made a list including Neon Genesis, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, etc etc etc.

After watching a few episodes I realized I am way, way behind the times. The only modern anime I have on my play list is Made in abyss. So, I come to you /a/. I come to you requesting your favorite anime picks from 2018 - 2020 and what looks upcoming for 2021. All I ask is that it be good high quality anime. I don't want something like fairy tail that's just designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Hook me up /a/.


Just an FYI my dude
The thread for new anime is
Some suggestions (mostly from 2018 to today)
- Dragonball Z Abridged (the series gets better and better as it goes on and covers DBZ, ending on the Cell arc, and covers several of the movies.)
- Rent-a-Grilfriend
- SAO Abridged (15 episodes so far sadly)
- Reborn as a Slime
- Highschool DxD (4 seasons)
- Alita Battle Angel movie
- One Punch Man
- Mars Daybreak (not post-2016, but rather obscure)
- Blue Submarine No.6 (also older and also obscure)
- Welcome to Demon School Iruma
- Goblin Slayer
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


Go watch Parasyte you dummy.

More thicc LOLIS could improve it for the otaku masses.


Fuck off


Having given it some thought I have to side with the "it's anti GMT"-camp. I think we are underestimating the extent to which this show is self-conscious.

Note for example how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown.

However I started to notice how often, almost every time, there is always some character in the other camp who anticipates what is to come, points it out to the superiors, and is shot down. So clearly we are not dealing with uniquely genius insights. Moreover the outcome of the battles is in almost all cases over-determined by the preceding circumstances. The most obvious case being the invasion of the Empire by the FPA really on - with no clear plan beyond "we'll be greeted as liberators" their defeat was assured before the invasion started, no genius opponents needed. Another case is the noble coalition, which falters more to its own internal tensions and weaknesses (factionalism and ill discipline mostly) than to a particularly genius approach by Reinhardt and company.

The characters who are portrayed as the brilliant great men, then, are so portrayed not because they are shown to be brilliant great men, but because that status is useful for other actors behind them - which is made explicit several times. Yang is initially very useful as a hero to Trunicht, while Reinhardt is the linchpin of the coalition of officers around him, threatening to fracture as soon as he suffers a breakdown for a couple of days. In his case it is Oberstein, arguably the real brains of the operation, who maintains him as figurehead.

History in the show is seen to be made through larger forces that determine the outcome of things, the characters can only be the vessel for larger forces, influencing what is already slated to happen at the margins. Which fits well with Yang - the historian - 's signature move, making the best of a bad situation.

Maybe the Narrator indulges in GMT but I can't really say the same for the author. He did (albeit very clumsy and barely) mention that Imperials vastly outnumbered the Alliance in men and technology, and also mentioned the Alliance's devastated economy in the constant. Yang was right to suggest a ceasefire or peace treaty as the only way for the Alliance to win the war against the Imperial in the long term.

It is still pretty bullshit how Reinhard can turn around social welfare and the economy of the Empire in just a few years though.

>how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown
Tbf most of Yang's tactics and strategies are directly copied from great maneuvers in history. IIRC His last real fight against the Empire before his assassination is literally Hannibal's Battle of Cannae in Space.


I mean the author seems to be imitating the style of evens of real history, which of course means that regarless of what the show contains both interpretations are going to apply, since even if unconciously, the guy is good enough of a writer to include material details that point in both directions, which i think is the fun of the show somewhat. But i think that even so, his belive in GMT bleeds through, in stuff like the backstory of the universe and the narrator. Which why i think this anime could do without that, without the objective narrator telling you what you are supposed to think about the events. Although the backstory is still interesting, i like how they presented it as a tv show in universe, like clearly that was not a real portrayal of what happened, and it is left for us to interpret what actually happened

I really wish GIB TOMBOY hadn't become an annoying meme because at the end of the day cuddling with a girl who could beat me in a fight is still the dream.


I feel you, I can't help but roll my eyes at "tomboy threads" on /a/ these days.

Can Ranma get preggers? Could Ranma get preggers with his own sperm between forms? What happens if Ranma gets hit with hot water while preggers?

Henge is a ninjutsu and as we see in the series, it has a physical form. When Naruto transforms into a Fuuma Shuriken, he literally becomes one. Sasuke has done the same thing. When Naruto transformed with Gamabunta he actually transformed into the fox as, the presence of claws affecting Shukaku demonstrates this. There are clear limits to it (size limit in terms of how big or small you can make yourself) but otherwise you're functionally the same. Shadow Clones are also shown to generate blood and have fully formed chakra systems, meaning until they dispel, they are functionally human.


mpreg is hot so yes


Goddamn it


That seems pretty universe-breaking in retrospect.


Yeah that's actually something naruto-fans have been arguing over for a long time. It's why fanfiction often has Naruto's henge be special and 'real' (which is honestly even stupider). Other fanfiction use this to the point where naruto essentially goes around using it to the fullest extent. The only reason this doesn't really get out of hand like other broken powers in other shonen, is because the more complex the henge, the harder it is to keep up for longer times, which limits its use to those people with chakra to burn (like Naruto).


Interestingly, since it's not a hard technique, it can be down one-handed, meaning a person missing a limb can temporarily return their limb for some time.

Really? Well, I'll watch it next time it's on if I can.


Damn now this is old


So in terms of power scaling, would Saint Seiya be on DBZ levels of overpowered? I've heard they're really fucking powerful.


File: 1608529006877.png (248.42 KB, 288x512, Hyoga Seiya.png)

Some stuff I thought cool:
In Saint Seiya one of the main characters, Hyoga, is a russian from an unknown siberian village. His mentor Camus, the Gold Knight of Aquarius, is a russian too. This was one of the few cases in which we can see not only a russian as a main character but also pratically void of any negative stereotype. Instead, the russian characters in the series are portrayed as heroics and very powerful. Plus there is a lot of emphasis on the Orthodox Christian culture as Hyoga is a devoted Christian, like his mother, and that has helped him became a better man compared to the old pagan gods who are portrayed in the series as cruel and tyrannical (except Athena)


Pagan Russians FTW

My favourite anime about Bougies doing Bougie things


>>3575 >>3596
Third Worldism was correct, once again.


The show unironically depicts intentionally or not some of Marx's criticisms of how capitalism will ultimately make life unfulfilling (Marriage as a method of holding onto or attaining more capital, Isolation from wider society, The inability to feel as if one makes physical impact on anything etc) for the capitalist class and not just the proles

Whenever the Rich kids in the show are shown going outside the prep school they are literally shown to be so socially awkward and unaware of like basic "How to act like a human being" shit like driving cars and knowing what fucking instant coffee is that their almost like developmentally disabled tiers of fucked up + Every character is shown to have some sort of neurosis all stemming from their bougie parents not loving them enough and making them these conditioned rich stereotyped automatons basically


Meant for >>>/leftypol/988563 but posting here cuz it belongs here

I hated that shit because they were all so insufferable, and yes, it was super cringy too. I probably wouldn't stand the later plot because of all the romance drama with said rich assholes.
I don't know what drove me to buy 2 manga volumes after not finishing the anime.

I mean, maybe it's just the humor what makes it so horrible to me. Maybe if I looked past that I'd realize it's based like >>3621 said
