I have a game for you /a/, take an anime you like, and describe it in a way that makes it sound shitty. I'll start:

Samurai Champloo is about an orphaned girl, and two hooligans who do nothing but bicker with each other. They are all jobless, and thus never have any money.

  Aired a full season after it was supposed to. Supposed to be full size (23+ min. per ep) show. In reality, each ep lasts as long as a prolonged fart. Incestualvore + gore for no good reason+ ecchi (not any enjoyable kind)=what little plot there was.

Op song was good, but only goes 33 seconds, which is about a third of the show.

You looking for sense? Will not find here. If they did an OVA it would last -oh, you missed it- fast.
No one with sense would watch this. Well, maybe me. I'll watch anything, and Pupa proves it.

What are you watching this season, /a/?

Excuse my shit taste and al-around small list, but I've got:
Momo Kyun Sword

I'm not exactly sure if I'll pick anything else up from this season later.

Fate is just a crummy franchise because nothing is inspiring, all the characters are flat, the story is another "magic comes to IRL tokyo", and none of the animated adaptations get anything like good animators/directors/composers so even when you add another creative body to a fate progect it still comes out hum drum and droll.

It's like ikki tousen without the sex appeal, we simply do not need fate to be made anymore since it's aesthetically worthless.

Japan has shit taste though, what fucking dimension are you from. Constant low brow series are toping sales charts, they constantly vote for annoying or piss poor characters in their character appreaciation or best girl charts, dumb series are always being remade, and they fall easily in to following inane fads more than americans. They come from a culture where it's not alright to succeed because it's considered rude to even be victorious. Almost everyone constant has to keep their head down in any situation so when it comes to their entertainment they don't even have any way to be involved in anything good and gravitate towards garbage.

For nothing more if you can't see that best girls in shows both anime and real lose every fucking time I don't know what to tell you about how japan has shit taste.

Just lurk more
Japan is notorious for its shit taste.

okay, since the new season has been going on for a few weeks, and no one's admitted to their lack of taste, since all new anime sucks (amirite?). I'll fess up to what's caught my eyes.
Not the best of seasons so far, but a few series I've stuck with.
Amagi Brilliant Park-who knew it would be the latest FMP? Fumufuuuuu!
WIXOSS spread, S2 Darker than ????
Danna no Nani-because I could find worse ways to spend 3 and a half minutes.
Dengi-gai no Honya san, because I like comedies around manga.
Yuki Yuna, because it's not Madoka.
Gugure! Kokkur-san because hearing Kyon lose battles to children amuses me.
Inou Battle wa Nichijou is just stupid enough, as is Ore Twintails. Trinity Seven is too, but also appeals to my Demon King Maou side.
Ushinarawetawhatever is something that seems like a mix of Little Busters and Glasslip, with a dash of This Ugly Yet Beautiful world. 2 of those, I did not finish. I'm giving this at least 5 eps to make some sense.
Hitsugi no Chaika Avenging Battle? Like I'd miss that.

I refuse to feel bad about my choices. Pics might be related.
Been drinking, memory not 'zactly clear.

What is it about Mysterious Cities of Gold that is so enthralling? I've been watching the English version, and I can't get enough of it. It seems like it's working with such a simple pallet and yet it's so extraordinary.

Any of you guys watch different types anime when in certain moods, what shows are they?

When I feel stressed I always go for the Cute Girls Doing Cute Things type with shows like YuruYuri and Non Non Biyori.

If I'm energetic I watch action stuff, I recently watched MD Geist: Most Dangerous Soldier and the Death Force sequel.

When feeling lazy and not that up for anything I just stick to comedies like Detroit Metal City, Cromartie High School and others.

Since you insisted :P

I tried watching Terra Formars, Nobunagun, Code Geass and Accel World. Some aspects of these shows induce actual physical sensations of cooking one's brain with microwaves. The only guilty sensation I feel is that of a serial murder in the chair right before the lever falls. Haha.

As for a good sense of guilt...I really like Kannagi and other absurdly comedic shows in that vein....

Hokay, the only one on your list that i've given a shot is Terra Formars. Dunno if i'll stick it out. Not exactly my genre, but will give a few eps.

Kannagi though? Kindred spirits!
A more jinxed series hasn't existed, but being able to see any Takako is good enough to continue existing.

To all the fags saying "hurr muh harem genre", I think OP meant that in the sense that the MC actually ends up with several or all the girls, something that actually almost never happens in harem anime.

Something Like Jin-Roh Anonymous-San 14/09/29(Mon)03:08 No. 34670 ID: 2576d3 [Reply]

I'm looking for anime like Jin-Roh. I liked how it distanced itself from anime tropes as much as possible. The characters felt real, the pacing was perfect, and the film was orchestrated as though it were live action. It's like the people who made it took at look at other anime, and said "No, that's stupid. We don't have to do that." The result is one of my favorite anime films.

The only other anime I've seen do this is the Ghost in the Shell movie, but I don't know if there are any other shows or films which try to capture the same feeling. I guess there are a few Miyazaki films which do this too, but with this request I'm looking for something I can think about as I watch, rather than just sit back and let the film do my thinking for me.

I was thinking about reading the manga a while ago, but I fell out of reading manga when I turned 20. Maybe I'll pick it up sometime.

I've seen Wings of Honneamise, can't believe I forgot about it. Thanks for reminding me, I know what to watch tomorrow night.

I'll be sure to check out Angel Cop and Venus Wars, they seem interesting.

About Grave of the Fireflies...
For some reason, if too many people tell me to watch or read something, I'll eventually stop caring about it and never pick up whatever they were recommending. It happened with Twin Peaks, Shade the Changing Man, and those Chuck Paluckachuck books. Well, too many people told me too many times that I should watch Grave of the Fireflies, and I just stopped anticipating it after a while. I might watch it someday. Probably not though.

Anonymous-San 14/09/30(Tue)07:43 No. 34673 ID: af3d3e


I like that you said that and can see now that you have said that a good reason for you not to watch Grave of Fireflies. When too many people, especially normies, know about something and they all have the confidence to recommend it to you it's probably shit to your or shit in general.

I just mentioned it because it's "realer" than most other stuff out there, like Jin-Roh. Just no scifi aspect to it.

Anonymous-San 14/09/30(Tue)08:06 No. 34674 ID: 2576d3

Man it's not like I think it's bad or anything, I just stopped looking forward to watching it. The fact that you recommended it means it's going to be in the text document I'm putting together, simply because it checks out with what I'm looking for, but it's just not going to be as high a priority as everything else on the list.

Speaking of which, if there's anything else you forgot about I'll gladly look into that too.

Anyone knoiw of any other anime titles with similar artwork and atmosphere to Video Girl Ai or I´s??? The Video Girl Ai OVA is probably my favorite animation of all time. I just love the way the show kind of fades away the entire world and makes the main characters shine with a nostalgic focus. I love the hyper realistic artwork and gracefully realistic movements of the characters.

I cant help but feel that the ecchi/romance genre has rarely seen its moments of brilliance, and is now flooded with trite, over-used gimmicks to appeal mass audiences, like the excessive sexualisation of female characters, uneffective stabs at humor, and most importantly the lack of development in the affection department, which is now replaced with superficial infatuations.

The second part of the Kokoro adaptation in Aoi Bungaku is the only thing that comes to mind right now. That's episode seven and eight respectively.

Speaking of that I suppose No Longer Human can fit the bill too, though it didn't hit me quite as hard as the aforementioned, which is the first adaption in the series, I want to say episodes one to four or five covers it.

Seconding this. It starts off rather slow and isn't interesting to watch until about the seventh episode, but then it kicks into overdrive and it's fucking fantastic.
