Yeah I thought about that one before, seems like it was never released in germany, and it doesn't pay to dub old anime

That's the beauty of learning a language, I will not be able to tell whether the voice acting is good or not until I'm already familiar with german, and for what I see, they are improving every day, watch this


The one about planes made me cry. Also I think I love the documentaries about Miyazaki more than his movies. The cross overs in the documentaries where he shows up in annos and Anno shows up in miyazaki is amazing. They’re just so comfy and sincere. I get that filming inherently makes anything a lie, but its the closest thing I’ve seen of artists struggling post fame with constant self doubt.


>it has everything.


The guy inventing the kamikaze plane?


It was a low quality show, but I felt the characters and plot points where more interesting than most other anime on the market. They are well developed, expressive, quirky, and with character flaws, which is something most writers can't even start to write. The storyboard artists and directors clearly tried to add visual nuance and symbolism to scenes as well (like the sun setting in the final meeting of the group as they're talking, characters having clearly distinguishable walks, etc), but the studio was clearly constrained by budget.

A lot of these details "didn't matter" when it came to greater plot or drama, but you can sometimes extrapolate quite a bit and that makes everything and everyone feel so "lived in". For example, in that shot that shows where Curran sleeps, you see that (1) she's renting out a storage room, is she broke? And (2) she barred the door with her greatsword because she doesn't trust her landlord. That's a lot of story from just a still! Or another example, when Nick AND the hostess block the loli from going closer to Zem, you can tell that how close Zem really is to the girls he hangs out with. He's shared his story with them, and has probably their trust and sympathy. It's possible they've done the same with him.

I also liked the persistent theming where everyone, including the bad guys, is at a point along their redemption arc. You have the early antagonists who told themselves that they were good people who were forced into a dead end of crime, which the Survivors are a counterpoint to because they actively avoided those dead ends by getting a damn job. Then the pattern's broken by the last antagonist who intentionally chose the dark side as an aspect of himself that he couldn't betray. That's actually a set up for what the Survivors have to get over in the next episode: they've avoided their downwards, but they haven't yet intentionally chosen what to pursue from there.

This show isn't something I can recommend to people because its animation is pretty mediocre, but for people like me who watch a lot of anime it does stand out. It's also standard fantasy instead of isekai which is sorely lacking.

The art is simplistic, the keyframes are shit and the framerate is jerky. But you have to give the show credit for having a lot of well-composed shots that are full of tone and character. The show isn't visually beautiful, but it's often visually INTERESTING. Shit's just done on a shoestring budget.

Oh, and to explain the top left shot, it's a meta gag in one of the episodes where the show baits you into thinking "FFS they can't even draw hands", then reveals that the squirrel girl's trolling everyone in the room as well as the viewer.


It's decent; I definetly think that it's one of the better shows this season, but I thought parts of it were annoying due to how the anime feels like it needs to explain what's going on, and the humor doesn't sit too well with me.


LMAO that third pic

might take a watch op thx for review

what is the best anime opening, and why is it naruto blue bird


Enough with good openings, lets change the subject to bad ones. The kind that immediately telegraphs the show is going to be garbage, thus sparing you wasting time watching it.

I thought I finally found another fantasy without bullshit that's so rare these days but we're hit with an in-universe level up system that I can excuse, but then it slowly starts turning into a harem power fantasy with a little bitch MC, so it's pretty much an isekai without the isekai part. The author even refuses to let characters level up when they should because Bell needs to be the main character and he has to constantly kill the big bad monsters to save the day.

Having watched all four seasons it's at its best when it's *not* focusing on the harem power fantasy crap, as you'd expect. It's like the author does not understand what a good story is, they just copied the cliche and prioritized their childish desires over telling an actual good story and the good parts happen accidentally.

At least in Re:Zero that's a conscious decision on the author because Mobilia is supposed to be a stand-in for the witch.
Meanwhile with Danmachi, Mobstein and endless teasing but no action with anyone is getting pushed by the editor instead.



When was the last time she and bell even spoke together

Ais is kept in the background, remains an expensive unblemished trophy for the hero to claim at the end. It's a story of the hero's growth, testing these "whores" for their worthiness, sending a message on who the correct "wife material", punishing the whores and putting them in their place, and the MC is rewarded for resisting temptation, resisting the easy weak path and acquiring the trophy Ais as a sign of his growth.

Would you recommend Lucky Star in 2023 to /anime/?
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Check the TV Tropes page on it if you wanna cheat when it comes to that.


To a certain extent, but its still enjoyable without. Its not like Pani Poni Dash where the references build it entirely.


No, fuck that shit
watch Pop team Epic instead.


If it wasn't made in the within past 10 years, I don't recommend it.


lucky star is kinda boring sometimes. I would only recommend if you like pure slice of life anime


> 1975. Hikaru Conde, a young Japanese boy who had set out for Cambodia to win the Pulitzer Prize, was unable to take any photographs that would be bought by a news agency. One day while wandering in the forest, he came across a group of Khmer Rouge rebels. There, he saw an infant who buried them in an instant. A girl named Petit, who called Hikaru "chan" and adored him after her first time meeting him. In wartime Cambodia, the survival of a father and child, who are not blood related, begins.


i dont want to give them views, is this anticommunist or not


[proxy] is right there, zoomy one.


Only with js enabled. You should filter every youtube url to redirect.invidious.io though.


It's so funny to call someone a "zoomer" (already a post-2016 meme) for not knowing about a function specific to vichan that's, again, from only the past few years.


As a zoomer myself (or whatever -oomer 1999 is) I said it as a term of endearment.

ayyy i've just read that one. i'm excited for more releases, it's a good one


It's really nice, too bad releases are very slow.


>hot girl chasing after a meek personalityless guy
Another weeb wish fulfillment fantasy. Might as well have orcs and wizards in it.


Yeah I'm not falling for propaganda from the tobacco industry.


girl in her 20s falling for an older guy is very realistic :^)


I've only ever dipped my toes into anime, but I'd like to go further. I like fantasy, samurai, cyberpunk, and emotional stuff, and things with nature, shinto spirits, etc. I like:
Weathering With You
Samurai Champloo
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
Vampire Hunter D
Rurouni Kenshin: Trust & Betrayal
Digimon: Last Evolution Kizuna
Lupin III
Princess Mononoke

well the ending was depressing but it wasnt quite what i was expecting. i didnt really get it. all i knew was the general direction that everything was headed towards, but i didnt really understand the culmination if that makes sense.


It's not about nihilism that's just the backdrop. It's about being a hero. This vid explains in depth of what's up with the setting and ending.


>mouse utopia
More like cringe LIBERALtopia.


the scientist that did this study is honestly such a fucking hack, he literally put mice in a retarded burger dystopia imagined version of gommunism just to prove an ideological point about how having food and shelter is le bad actually


I thought the point was more to do with population density and limit of resources not really some message about communism.


I don’t think I can actually recall any time action in an anime looked genuine outside of sword of the stranger and some shootouts in cowboy bebop. So many shows seem to gloss over the actual fighting part for overly long periods of exposition, random still panels to substitute for something meaningful happening and music so fucking loud my ears hurt. too much shits happening on screen but simultaneously nothing it feels awful

Claymore had pretty good fights in it. Too bad something so good became a train wreck in the end due to original ending. They should have just waited for the manga.


what are our thoughts on penguin vietnam?


More care and intelligence was put into this than god knows how many of the last seasons of anime


Naruto sakuga is pretty good.

Adding to OP's question: what's some good anime with quadruped character's fighting? I think seeing cats fight the way humans do in shonen anime would be cool.
