Recently I tried watching Teletubbies in Japanese, because that's how I learned English, so maybe I could learn Japanese with it too. However, the Japanese dub for Teletubbies is partially lost media, and I'm not sure how I would go about looking for fan dubs.
What are some anime / japanese media that drip feeds you some of the language while still being entertaining?

Yes I'm using other language learning resources like duolingo and a copy of Survival Japanese.


You're on the right track by using kid shows. I'd say watch something like Peppa pig's Japanese dub (you can find it on YouTube I believe) or crayon shin Chan since they're both targeted at small children. I could understand most of what was going on in the show unless they used a vocab word I hadn't learned yet, the grammar is pretty simple for both shows as well.


moe sol cgdct, the one with a specific hobby attached will help with vocabularies around that topic, with japanese subs if you can already read a bit. also cram vocabs with anki, it doesnt take a lot of time and is very easy, dont use duolingo it sucks and a waste of your time. also memorise basic kanji, i suggest you learn 500 basic kanji then stop learning them individually and go for vocabularies.


A thread about evrything relating to Soul Eater.

Soul Eater is the first anime i ever saw and it's the reason why i am adicted to anime so ia m pretty buiest if you ask me

haven't read/seen a lot of fire force but soul eater is good. could see it being dismissed as a random "it's ok I guess" fighting shonen by people who've read/seen boatloads of historical stuff but I think there's some really good qualities. anime-original stuff does mess with the themes and story but nothing is stopping you from watching the anime & switching to the manga when it starts deviating, especially given Okubo's early art could be very wonky (esp the faces) and the Bones visuals are amazing. just keep in mind (iirc) the "kishin egg" concept is anime-only but it's not a huge thing. visually it's peak 2000s mallgoth aesthetic (not an insult, it's very charming if done well) and Okubo improves immensely throughout the run. thematically there's some great stuff about fighting with your flaws/mental illnesses/neuroses and finding the right person to "resonate" with - Black Star isn't just a "Naruto parody" but an interesting exploration of how the brains of characters like that & their real-world counterparts work and Tsubaki is a perfect partner for him. Maka as someone who takes everything very seriously & worries a lot fights WITH her fear & her partner is an encouraging dude who doesn't take everything very seriously. Death the Kid's obsessed with symmetry so his partners are twins with very different looks and personalities. his OCD at first felt like a lame running joke but the way it was incorporated into the themes of "balance vs harmony" and how past generations saw it as purely "balance vs chaos" was great. tezca & justin stuff was really good and again very observant of how people think.

now the elephant in the room re: okubo is fire force's "woke 8 year old owns feminist" scene and sure, it's far from flawless (switching from "accidental undressing" fanservice to self-sexualization on the spot to help his point, the very concept of "woke 8yo") but I don't really care because:

1. if you check the people who attack him for fanservice on japanese social media, they aren't the japanese equivalent of your sex positive leftist friends - they're loony #istandwithjkrowling types who actually do shame irl women for self-sexualizing. it's literally not a fabricated strawman if you know that crowd!

2. it's cool seeing a guy who's not a partisan right winger call out "fanservice is evil" stuff without going off an ideological deep end, instead keeping his personal outlook. it's great how his series are jPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Ice Queendom wasn't bad but they went lazy with the animation at parts and I don't think I would have cared if I did not see the original show, that three recap episodes were rushed.


>cringe dialogue
>creative ambitions bigger than its budget can possibly allow
>stiff, awkward animation
>cringe chuuni character designs
>characters are kinda just trope salads
<the actual anime adaptation by an actual Japanese studio isn't much better


Ice Queendom was really fun. I liked the Nonbinary Inception Ghostbuster character and all the dream stuff.

If you mean Singular Point… it was talkd about… on imageboards and reddit. I finally took the time to see it and it honestly sucked for the most part. Some ideas and concepts were interesting but a lot of it is theoretical pseudo-science and leading up to the reveal of Godzilla-monsters in a more Lovcraftian, physics/universe defying entities or Singular Points. But the characters and story are totally blandly done. It feels like its trying to pull an Evangelion type vibe from the story but not hitting the mark. The most standout character is the comic-relief Pops and his antics, everyone else feels boring and by the numbers if they have any character at all.
Some discussion on it.

TL;DR: The show tries to be different kinds of Godzilla movie at the same time, mixing in thing from Showa, Heisei and Shin Godzillas and inevitably making them clash. It's not much better than the Netflix Planet Godzilla series either, though the animation and art design isn't as bad.

>The Black
I found it pretty interesting a take, and they didn't try to be kiddie and had characters die in a manner that mattered. The Second Season completes the story and it feels fairly organic to me. The various strange lore and aesthetic made it feel engrossing and made the conclusion genuinely satisfying. The only thing I might have added is let Boy say something at the end, kinda like a Nova moment in Beneath the Planet of the Apes, a hoarse cry for his adoptive mother figure Hayley. Also the English version is better IMO, the Japanese one sounds generic.


Hello old thread. So how about that Shin Ultraman thing.

Ah, I remember that existed a while ago. Thought I'd check it out but still haven't. I'm barely keeping up with JoJo.
>lovecraftian, physics/universe defying entities
Huh. I'm up for anything but I feel that sort of thing would better work with something like Ultraman, unless it's about the ayys. I like goji as the human-made abomination or ancient superbeing he usually is and having this basic hunk of flesh and nuclear power face off visually lovecraftian creatures would be cool to see. 2nd pic related. C*lt*sts mad seething, eternally coping at simple truth.
Miraculously finished this last year. I should check the 2nd season. The stuff with the drift was actually interesting and absolutely what people wanted to see played with.

It even says so on the back of it's blu-ray cover.


I prefer the doujin adaptation


Whenever I think back on this series all I can remember is
being sung over Amazing Grace for some reason.

Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either. Hell, I'm not even talking about Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikodou abilities and being capable of both Amateratsu and Tsukuyomi genjutsu), equipped with his Gunbai, a perfect Susano'o, control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju's DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjutsu and taijutsu. I’m also not talking about Kono Yo no Kyūseishu Futarime no Rikudō Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan (which is capable of Enton Amaterasu, Izanagi, Izanami and the Tsyukuyomi Genjutsu), his two original Rinnegan (which grant him Chikushōdō, Shuradō, Tendō, Ningendō, Jigokudō, Gakidō, Gedō, Banshō Ten’in, Chibaku Tensei, Shinra Tensei, Tengai Shinsei and Banbutsu Sōzō) and a third Tomoe Rinnegan on his forehead, capable of using Katon, Fūton, Raiton, Doton, Suiton, Mokuton, Ranton, Inton, Yōton and even Onmyōton Jutsu, equipped with his Gunbai(capable of using Uchihagaeshi) and a Shakujō because he is a master in kenjutsu and taijutsu, a perfect Susano’o (that can use Yasaka no Magatama ), control of both the Juubi and the Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju’s DNA and face implanted on his chest, his four Rinbo Hengoku Clones guarding him and nine Gudōdama floating behind him AFTER he absorbed Senjutsu from the First Hokage, entered Rikudō Senjutsu Mode, cast Mugen Tsukuyomi on everybody and used Shin: Jukai Kōtan so he can use their Chakra while they are under Genjutsu. I'm definitely NOT Talking about sagemode sage of the six paths Juubi Jinchuuriki Gedou Rinne Tensei Super Saiyan 4 Uchiha Madara with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan, Rinnegan, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception, and Geass doujutsus, equipped with Shining Tvåldtäktzohedron while casting Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann as his Susanoo, controlling the Gold Experience Requiem stand, having become the original vampire after Alucard, able to tap into the speedforce, wearing the Kamen Rider Black RX suit and Gedou Mazou, with Hashirama Senju's DNA implanted in him so he has mokuton kekkei genkai and can perform yin yang release ninjutsu while being an expert in kenjuPost too long.

IDK why but pic rel from the boruto anime posters gives me heavy doujin vibes, y'know the ones that have NTR or fat bastard or pedo content or some other shit. I think it might be because they cut off Naruto's face and only left the bottom half, like the covers of many such, aforementioned doujins do.



this motherfucker's been around for 50 years and nobody can agree on what exactly his hair is supposed to be


It's a toupee


honestly the more I think about this the more in-character it is

File: 1664637964751.png (920.53 KB, 767x660, Mazinkaiser.png)


In what order do I watch this?

Is there a common sense order in anime? show->movie->ova?

which usually gets made first?
do all of them have lori fanservice


Always go with release order, no matter the type of media.

What a let down. First Sonny Boy… now this… why are the japes so bad at finishing up a story?


The japanese seem to be mired in a cultural incapability of breaking away from their own tropes without it being heavy handed and then going back on it.
The only recent examples that aren't overdosed on tropes is hayashida q's, fukumoto nobuyuki, togashi yoshiro and fujimoto tatsuki


If it's merely a trope, that means they should understand it conceptually, and capable of proper execution.


chicken is bad if it tastes like chicken. a sign should shoot out of it that says "meat is murder" for chicken to be an intellectual experience
