Is it just Ayn Rand for weebs or is there a redeemable message in it?
14 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


Having had a year or so to ruminate over thsis show and read some fanfics as alternate takes I have to say that Shield hero is an interesting show but like Arifureta undermines its dark, gritty premise with cutesy shit and stalled character development after the initial character arcs.


>Is it just Ayn Rand for weebs or is there a redeemable message in it?
It's Randian but has some interesting and redeeming aspects, overall a mix of good and bad in a mediocre worldbuild (that fanfics seem to expand much more).


finished watching shield hero (why did they name it the rising rather than the ascent?) a couple of weeks ago, and i have to say that while its world and ideas are weird, like for example how did a matriarchy even have the right to form if physical differences between men and women still exist in a medieval society, i like the story and the characters too much not to be excited for the second season. i'm looking forward to naofumi and the other heroes' growth, and i'm curious whether raphtalia gets over her separation anxiety enough for her to finally take the slave crest off. i also wonder how shield is going to manage his region, and why are the waves a thing in the first place.


>(why did they name it the rising rather than the ascent

Americans don't know what "ascent" means


Because shitty LN translations are par for the course.

Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

>What's with these angry fags who only come here to complain
I think it's /pol/, they come around at times and bitch about inane things, pretending to be /a/ purists.


This is more of a parody of the genre, but I think it counts.

of course it counts


I'm watching this anime right now
loving it so far, lol'd many times


But why tho?

File: 1608529037842.jpg (132.52 KB, 265x375, BNA_poster.jpg)


Well that was bad. Wasted potential as it's usual with many shows.

Most baffling parts were the deuteragonist working the big rich mafia guy that pits the poor to kill each other as a sport among other things and the "if you kill him you'll be as bad as him" at the end. Then there's the convenient powers the main couple exhibit to solve the big issue at the end.

Trigger hasn't been good since it was called Gainax, huh.

I feel that BNA failed because unlike Beastars ( >>9810 ) or even My Gym Partner's a Monk- I mean Seton Academy, they don't really embrace the animal side of their ANIMAL anime. Even Killing Bites ( >>5136 ) is better at using that shit.


File: 1639431691896.png (527.91 KB, 852x1080, ClipboardImage.png)

BNA is just pure mediocrity rather than anything good. It had a few really good explorations of 'if a character could turn into a beast form, what would they use it for? What would it do to their social standing/normie friends?' I was hoping it'd explore that more but it went for some dumb religion/political corruption angle instead. None of its characters are that interesting, though the ones that I liked don't get the development.

The ep where Michiru leaves the city and just uses her rare time as a human enjoying being a regular girl with a friend of hers was a rare well written ep and showed what they could've done if they tried harder. The baseball ep was wild fun but could've been in any Trigger show. It being in this seemed especially weird cuz why would their weird death baseball be a popular sport in a world which seems relatively peaceful other than crime? I assume regular people are like the mom and pop Michiru lives with, and I don't see them enjoying televised murder.

The writing is extremely uneven. The fourth (or sixth? can't remember) episode, the one where Michiru hangs out with her dolphin friend on the mainland, stands out as utter dogshit and gets shockingly bad. Both the writers and to some extent the animators seem to have given up on that one.

The show never knows whether it wants to be slice of life or ridiculous action, and for that one ep it calmed down and you thought hey, maybe beastpeople CAN live outside the city providing they can keep it a secret. The story obviously goes straight back to the city after and the usual dumb shit, with Nazuna I thought the show could go back there but nahhh enjoy more HEY WE'RE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BAWWW. Then the bullshit revelations with the wolf guy and wow fuck this show.


It seems to be a returning theme that half the furry anime produced either fails or turns to shit.


Seton Academy (the manga) was so good but by the end the author kept using the same terrible jokes and dragging it out. Still enjoyed it fwiw.


True, but like you say I still enjoyed it, cuz they didn't take themselves too seriously. Also Kemokko Dobutsuen now that I think about it. T-Rex no Kanojo is cut short, but I believe it applies too. >>14721

It was always weird to me that both of these exist and are so different in every way.
I think you would find nobody that prefers the first one over Ultimate.
But for me Hellsing was always great in alot of unique ways the main problem it has is story.
If you only watch Hellsing you will have no idea what the fuck is even going on for some odd reason they dont explain the most basic principles.
Hellsings Seras will always have a special place in my heart
So lets talk Hellsing(Ultimate)tankieTankie

Original Hellsing blows Ultimate out of the water. It was written by the writer of Serial Experiments Lain. When I watched Ultimate I didn't finish it because I was too enraged how they had ruined Seras's character and turned her into an annoying Genki girl and had ceased to make the story revolve around her struggles with becoming a vampire. Hellsing with the villains from Ultimate would have been great, but alas.

This is why Original Hellsing places no dramatic weight on the exploits of Alucard and he's basically a side-character and all the real "plot" is Seras's personal struggles (also he's less overpowered in the first place)


What's your opinion of the FREAK Chips?

Hellsing Ultimate is what hooked me into watching anime. There is nothing quite like it out there. Not much in terms of story, most of the show takes place during a single night. It is carried by characters and visuals. Animation is absolutely gorgeous, every frame is like a painting.

The original Hellsing was literally the first two episodes of Ultimate stretched into entire season. Plus something about werewolves, I dont remember what that was about. I think it was just another Nazi transformation plan, the same as artificial vampires. I did appreciate the character stuff with Seras thought. And the OST was the bomb, really wish they used it in Ultimate.



Hellsing Ultimate is more like an exploitation film and that's why I liked it more, but both are good and worth watching.

The Japanese didn't even try to use a Russian name did they? Still, cool to know. Interesting that he didn't use the god armor of, say, Perun.


>each human is granted the assistance of a valkyrie who transforms into a powerful weapon tailored for their user's combat style called "Volund", at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed
Sounds kinda similar TBH


Wow this board is basically a time machine lol.
Canonically, gold saints move at the of light and their punches pack as much power as a supernova. They're OP as shit.


>this board is basically a time machine
>gold saints move at the of light and their punches pack as much power as a supernova
Jesus, Joseph and Mary that's definitely in the top tier of DBZ power scaling.
I asked cause I read some fanfic long time ago that had Goku and Saint Seiya spar for fun and be evenly matched in a multi-crossover tournament.

Nazi weebs be seething

Mieruko-chan is a good horror comedy and High School of the Dead is pretty fucked up too (but both keep going from utter horror to fanservice).


File: 1635783771489.png (1.75 MB, 1021x703, ClipboardImage.png)

Shōjo Tsubaki from the 90s. I haven't watched it, but it's said to be one of the most disturbing anime of all time.


uhh what happened to the original thread this was posted in


It's still there, but dead and pointless


Does anyone remember this horror manga about a city that had underground eldritch creatures start coming out onto the surface and it follows a group of survivors?


>he hasn't seen this japo-american masterpiece

<The Hobbit is a 1977 American animated musical television special created by Rankin/Bass, a studio known for their holiday specials, and animated by Topcraft, a precursor to Studio Ghibli.

Yes, admittedly I was still a kid when they aired it (Sword in the Stone) regularly late at night where I live. I'd always try to watch the whole film because it was super comfy, but just couldn't stay awake cuz it's so long and it was late.


I suggest trying it today - it's not actiony but it is wholesome and kinda inspiring to me


Just watched this the other night.

lol, that climax


Something that has similar asthetic to the stuff mentioned here is The BFG from 1989


Another classic

So aren't these anime basically just following the same formula as Seth Rogen or Adam Sandler movies which are considered by the public at large to be "normalfag" "cringe"?

I like MPDGs whether in anime or not.


You mean BPD-girls-without-the-realistic-downsides fantasies.




did you watch any random tv show that basically nobody actually watches and is just there to take time in the schedule of the channel ? you would be surprised.
anime just has a seasonal schedule for the marketing that makes it especially stand out because you basically end up seeing a glimpse of the majority of them because it's all neatly packaged and put on anime sites (like MAL),but I could throw a near endless number of movies and shows in your face if I wasted my time compiling them too.


>>15229 (me)
also,I don't mean by that that its good,infact it becomes nearly impossible to succesfully find what's actually good in the sea of thrash that's shown to you,whereas for movies you probably didn't even hear of them in the first place.

Did you know Ufotable made a crossover OVA between Anime Tenchou and Touhou but ZUN told them to fuck off apparently?

>Due to the strong restrictions on derivate works of Touhou Project, fans were surprised about the announcement by a commercial studio. ZUN, the creator and unique developer of the games, has little confidence about commercial video game distribution. Because of that he only allows that fan-works are made by fans for fans, with any intromission from corporations. And above all, with his permission.

>The surprise about Ufotable anime caught the attention of ZUN who later stated that said animation would be just an OVA and that he wasn't involved in the project. In the same way, this incident caused ZUN to change the terms of use of his series, prohibiting his products from being sold or produced by corporations.

idk if this is supposed to be a gotcha because almost all touhou merchandising there is out there has been made by fans, shit like figma are like a drop in the ocean


ZUN doesn't have an issue with figures because they're just figures. Stuff like anime or games by big studios would make fans to mistake it as official when he wants the canon to remain nebulous and in the hands of fan creators, and this is why it's weird that he changed his tone for a corporate mobage that came out of nowhere.
At least he included in the newer guidelines that mobage must be free-to-play, shame that he didn't prohibit microtransactions or paying to remove ads though.


Anyway, is Anime Tenchou any good?
>Director: Hideaki Anno


I'm just saying that companies have been making profits of touhou for years. It's definitely a brand that "belongs to everyone", but unfortunately this means can porkies can profit from it as well.
>At least he included in the newer guidelines that mobage must be free-to-play
laughable. Every mobage is free to play because they make mad bucks with gacha. At least the ones that manage to stay afloat.

Afaik zun doesnt make any money from gacha and treats them like any other derivative fanwork despite being clearly corporate. Plus he still talks shit about them in omake.

For a magical girl show Symphogear is unhinged.

What's funny about Symphogear is that while the show is relatively tame with fanservice, official merchandise is borderline pornographic.
Chris is best girl.


Is is true this is UN but mahou shoujo?


What? No, they actually save the world unlike the UN.
