post your ideas about epic anime:
>battle shouen stylized seinnen but instead of battles there is science and research related stuff, like conferences, and data gathering
>main character is PhD student at tokyo university researching something very technical and complicated with the objective of curing world hunger or something.
>some ideas for arcs
>MC battling for funding with someone trying to use the money for something fucking useless but profitable
>MC sabotaging people trying to use his work for evil, like building weapons, or kill people directly or indirectly
>MC fights against large corporation trying to sabotage his work, because it cuts their profits
>MC realises his scientific approach was wrong and has to pivot several times, and has to learn new skills (training arcs)
>MC realises his knowledge is incomplete and has to go to a master from another discipline to teach him, he gets taught a moral lesson about the nature of science
>MC's PhD master gets killed by the corporation trying to stop him, so he swears revenge on them, and uses science shit to do so

An average Japanese schoolboy experiences the worst day of his life. He meets a holographic-like girl who casually informs him that he has been living in an otome raising sim and has been selected by her, the "player", as her "bachelor" to raise. If he does not get the "good ending" who knows what could happen to him! Slowly he finds out that there are other rival "bachelors" and "players", and that there are no rules to speak of in winning the heart of the (un)lucky "protagonist" girl…


The anime is a historical fiction yaoi school comedy which is set in the Soviet run Huangpu Academy.
It follows the misadventures of the bishounen MC Zhou Enlai and other more … straight communists as they attend and go about rubbing shoulders with other notable figures of 20th Chinese history and taking classes with Soviet instructors, whom could make for additional ship/pairing bait.

How much of this actually exists? Annie-may that's so embarrassingly incompetent that you can actually sit through and laugh at ironically, like a hilariously bad movie? It's normally a lot harder to do because every bit of animation has thought and effort put into it, so it just comes off as intolerably bad when it's bad. Unlike an incompetent movie, which is much easier for someone with a handheld camera to half-ass their way through to a finished product. Pic related, Psychic Wars is fucking terrible.

Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar (or Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari) is some of the most unintentionally hilarious and terrible harem anime out there. It begins in a way that build intrigue… and then throws it away for a weird fucking power-fantasy and other insanity reminiscent of Infinite Stratos.


Yes, it would. Especially since it's a 90s type of cringe in 3d

I thoroughly disliked it. for the life of me, I couldn't see anything redeemable.


Loser otaku got character development and got a few "friends" while remaining awkward, loser otaku fanbase can no longer self-insert.


>a ton of friends
lol she got a handful of friends, why do 4chan brains always exaggerate everything

>she didn't earn

bruh she finally got friends after over 70 chapters

>and all the humor dried up

why do 4chan brains always exaggerate everything (x2)


>loser otaku fanbase can no longer self-insert
Pure projection on your part. You want her to have friends because it makes you feel better about yourself, good writing or logical consistency be damned. Look in the mirror anon.

And wow, I fucking hated it to be perfectly honest. It seems like the entire show is only about Shinji's angst (and Rei increasingly I'm sure) and the characters various emotional issues, but like, okay, who cares? The situations they're thrown into are totally absurd and ridiculous so how can I take any of this drama stuff seriously?

Like these kids are the last best hope of mankind and they seem to be totally unsupported by anyone? Shinji was gonna live in a totally empty tenement and it's only his superior's minor moment of reasonable judgement that means he lives with her instead (and she is clearly no kind of parent figure), and Rei lives in a dark, dingy slum dwelling made of all concrete with nobody taking care of her either?

Like, their emotional reactions seems somewhat understandable but also completely dull and uninteresting because the situation they're in is absurd (and even then they both come off as pathetic and unlikeable - and no you can't say 'but that's the point!!', that doesn't make it entertaining to watch).

The less said about the non-angst portions of the story the better, the 'fights' are 10 minutes of foreplay for like 60 seconds of action if that, and while that's a common problem with anime, that doesn't make it excusable.

Yes this series is old and I'm sure it has inspired so much but people still recommend to watch it and it just seemed like garbage. Almost nothing is explained which means I can't possibly feel invested in this absurd world in any way. Every part of the setting seems to have been created with 'style over substance' in mind, urgh, just overall I found it absurd. Try not to give too much spoilers because I guess I might still try watch it, but I really don't see it redeeming itself.

Though for context I also hated 'The Godfather' and 'No Country For Old Men' and thought they were pretentious overlong shit, so maybe I'm just a contrarian.

I'm calling Asushin victory in the next Evangelion.

I'm basing this a process of elimination and the ending of EoE. Kaworu is dead, Rei will be used in the instrumentality and Mari doesn't fit the ending thematically. Since the instrumentality will be started with 01 and Asuka lacks her Evangelion it's safe to assume she'll be in the middle of it.

Barring Anno dropping a brick on her head she'll be the last one standing with a confession. Tic toc Mariasufags, tic toc.

Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

I don't understand this fucking meme/joke. What is even the relevance?


File: 1608529142978.mp4 (3.54 MB, 640x360, Joker explains Sneed's Fee….mp4)

It's a hidden dirty joke from a Simpsons episode that became a forced /tv/ meme. The joke itself is funny, while the meme has lost any comedy it once had, and now the humor comes from it being used as a cringy inside joke.

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.

File: 1608529140742.jpg (26.89 KB, 480x360, apple kagom inuyasha ep89.jpg)

Inuyasha was a classic anime of its time, combining Japanese mythology with fairly good animation, good artstyle nd a fairly straight-forward plot. It stagnated a bit due to continuing longer than was probably intended, but still managed to pull off a decent show with a memorable cast and enjoyable story of a time-traveling/isekai romance. I enjoyed it.

The movies are free on Youtube BTW

Yasahime is like Boruto is to Naruto so far, only difference being we don't even see the main characters of the original. Animation, artstyle and plot don't seem to have much depth (yet) and to be frank the main character is just a boy who's "really a girl" rather than an actual Tomboy, >>2654
However so far it at least doesn't tamper with Inuyasha's ending, pretty smoothly transitioning to the next generation without backtracking into the prior series outside of being a spinoff.

It's also a little bit like Kyokai no Rinne


Jesus Christ is nothing sacred? Inuyasha's story was concluded, is everything going to be some disgusting fanfic sequel nobody asked for like Boruto in the future now?


It seems to be good.

How the FUCK is it possible that there’s no general thread for quite possibly the most well-written and even leftist-oriented Shounen serial of the 2000s?

Wanted to make a general because I been tearing up listening to shit like this

Best anime soundtrack ever imo, easily tops even Jojo’s

>besides wanting to fuck envy

The writers knew this and decided to add in some male power fantasy, when they let Roy assrape Envy.
Personally, I find Envy resembles a little bratty boy too much, so fucking him was never an option

So, let's be clear:
Were these two living under a fascist military police state?
I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power. They even call the head of the goverment "The fuiër." Am I wrong /a/?

It's also worth noting that the state has nearly unlimited reach and potential. There are many instances were the military just barge into peoples homes for various reason with out probable cause. When Ed and Major Armstrong go to that village and encounter Dr. Mooreo; After being denied access to information on the Dr's research into the philosophers stone Armstrong mentions "You could have taken it by force you know." Which really cements the unlimited potential of the state. That's not some random soldier, or, Even ed or Ale.
That's a high ranking military commander.


>TBH I never understood the hype for this show.
&ltIt had some cool moments and animation and a decent story, but if you listen to some people talk about it you'd think it was the second coming of christ.
&ltOften enough they're also HxH fags as well.
Your question is too vague but I'll try to answer it.
•The characters have fun, interesting and cool personalities with enough complexity to keep the audience engage.
•The setting and power system are detailed and unique enough for it to stand out from the crowd.
•The series is long enough convey it story properly and doesn't overstay it's welcome.
•The plot doesn't trip over itself and goes to shit.
•It's dark but still hopeful.
•It's "anime" but not too "anime" for a general audience making it great for beginners.

There are more reasons but I made my point. It's a very well rounded series which can be enjoyed by a wide audience.


I mean there was a general thread, the OP was just a retard who didn't put FMA or Full Metal Alchemist in the subject or content and so you miss it in catalog.


File: 1608529141641.jpeg (38.51 KB, 350x358, 36C1D0BB-8CAC-48CA-812A-A….jpeg)

I’d say they were in a sort of “fringe case” regime where we don’t know enough about how the political system functioned for sure to say it was specifically a fascist (palingenetic ultra-nationalist) regime; but from everything we’ve seen they certainly appear to be some form of military dictatorship (when Mustang talks about usurping Bradley he never mentions an election)
>I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power
I wouldn’t say FMA *glorifies* Amestris; after all Amestris itself and the people that lead it are the main antagonists. The Ishavalan Genocide is explicitly enough of a reason to overthrow the entire government and Amestris is portrayed as an aggressive, imperialistic power. The real question about the leanings of the show depend on whether you think the homunculi represent (((somebody))) or whether they represent something else.
