I've heard from a lot places that newer touhou games are far worse than their predecessors, but I haven't really seen anybody say why. I've only played a few so i'm kind of out of the loop. How have the games gotten worse and why? Are people just tired of the same thing?


File: 1539924324949.png (491.29 KB, 833x1000, __hinanawi_tenshi_touhou_d….png)

So I guess nobody here actually plays touhou?


Yes, I don't feel like replying because I see no point. If you enjoy them just play them.
But if you reall want to know, most people hate the new designs and think ZUN is out of ideas and copying fangames too much/taking too many fan memes seriously, hence why the newer games "worse". If you've actually played all of them you'd see some sort of deranging in quality, but for that you need to play them and judge by yourself.


Unpopular "gimmicky" mechanics and just more of the same. ZUN has been lying in the status quo for ages now, QA only improves ever so slightly from game to game. Can't say he's doing something wrong though, guy has to make dough for beer.

>If anything, its more specific than a typical genre.
I'm not seeing it. My picture of it is that demographic and genre are two semi-independent ways of categorising media, the first one based on who consumes it and the second one based on what themes are in the work itself. You could have a shoujo fantasy manga, or a seinen fantasy manga, for example, and they'd both explore the themes of fantasy in ways most suitable to the demographic. I say semi-independent instead of independent because as you said different demographics like different genres, there's not an equal amount of sports tournament anime/manga for shounen vs josei for example.

Even in the states there's such a thing as YA novels/movies. It's also considered a type of, "genre". When you hear ya, a lot of the same stuff comes to mind: shitty romances, love triangles, plain Jane that everyone thinks is special, etc. I think seinen has a lot of commonalities too. Lots of death, complex concepts and questions, older male protagonist who's thrust into extraordinary circumstances, demanding of audience. Death Note and Parasyte have all of those things in common. If it wasn't a genre, I wouldn't know what to expect when going into one. Not all of it fits that mold, but I think it can articulate a person's preferences none the less.


I have been enjoying Overlord 3, Middle Manager Tonegawa and Megalobox.
Looking forward for the goblin slayer. Indeed, there are lot of good things lately.

Nice, I'm loving Part 5 too so far! It's shaping up to be the best Jojo anime yet.

At three episodes in, it's a little too early to say. Battle Tendecy is extremely rewatchable for me.

Today I was ordering a wig for cosplay, and mom ended up picking out a wig for herself because the "thought it would be fun to wear it out sometimes". It was just a simple brown bob-style wig, but I think mom might be a closet cosplayer.

So, do any of you guys have any experiences to share of sharing anime with your parents or other family members? do hey like it at all or is it more "you watching yer chinese girl cartoons again son?"
I've shown my mom every miyazaki movie and lots of other anime films, she's a pretty big fan. On the other hand, my dad is all "miyazaki? I thought we bombed that place"
My one older brother used to be a DBZ fan, now the only anime he can stomach is Akira.

My mom or dad don't really mind, actually. My dad has always been into video games and other "nerdy" stuff. And my mom is pretty supportive of me, so they don't give a shit. Haven't watched any with my parents yet.



I miss you…

""you watching yer Japanese anime cartoons again son?"

At least they get the country right. My parents don't even watch Disney movies much.


My mother can't stand it; my father is pretty indifferent. Both of them see it as children's shows. I'm kinda jealous of all of the cool parents most anons seem to have


ive watched some anime with my dad cause he likes superhero shit

Does anyone know the name of the song that plays in episode 3 right when they're entering the witch's domain?

It's a really good song but it's only used like twice in the whole show. I think they also use it later on in the show, when Homura transforms.



No, but thanks, I found it. The song I was thinking of is Pugna Cum Maga.

Oh man, I miss the time when /n/ had anime aside the shitposting. Now it's just shitposting, and no change in the board subtitle will make it any different.

Like I've been saying since 1989, everything is now poseur anime copping stories 'n' styles from the greats. New shows are watched by poseurs, loved by poseurs and should fuck off forever. What, were you born after 1976 and think you have an opinion? Haha, you baby cunt little twerp fuck off GTFO out of here with your baggy Naruto headband you Funimation fapping little bitch. How about you watch to some of your favorite moeshits like Strike Witches and Cardcaptor Sakura and eat pocky and write poems to your waifu. Haha, who cares? You think you're all manly and cool because you all just hit puberty in your 20's and can grow these red wispy bullshit grayless beards on your pizza-cratered little baby faces and you revere streaming, steaming trash like .hack as if it were the classics. You wouldn't know a classic unless Coca-Cola printed it on the bottle I want to break on your eyes and slash your throat with you impossible nerd. I oughta slap you so hard that your dumb snapback hat will never fit on your chicken-neck topping little dumb head again you Rei loving vagina. Fuck you.

>original is nice but just a typical gag cartoon
>reboot is 100x better and original in production and writing

Maybe you should stop thinking every one of the 30+ anime a season will all be amazing and watch the good stuff. Good anime can still be made, but there's just so much being produced sometimes you miss it. Anime just got really popular and a huge cashcow. Japs just want money in the end after all.

>He's probably never see the real classic "Ugokie kori no tatehiki"

Anything made after the Shouwa era isn't real anime. Even then, Shouwa era stuff is pushing it.

Anything from Heisei onwards is absolute shit.

Even leaving aside how ridiculously hilarious, we see poor Tanishi failing so badly at everything that when he achieves even a small measure of success you can't help but smile

I was really excited about anime a year ago but that excitement seems to have ebbed. The last anime I got all the way through was Eva, and that was quite awhile ago. After that I started Serial Experiments Lain but my computer's fan died before I got all the way through it and by the time I got a new one I'd lost the interest the series built in me during the time I watched it. I know I'd love it but I don't know if I'll actually enjoy watching the rest of it now. Awhile after that I read a few manga series and they were enjoyable but they didn't do much to arouse serious interest in reading a lot of others.

It's like that with a lot of things for some reason, there are a lot of books I own I haven't gotten through simply because I stopped halfway through them to read something else or lost interest, and a lot of them are ones I know I'd like. I'm not sure what anime to watch, because the ones that sound really appealing are ones I usually get halfway through the first episode of and then either get bored or feel obligated to get through, which paradoxically kills my desire to watch the rest.

Are there many anime series which are interesting enough to grip you from the beginning? If so I'd appreciate hearing what they are.

There aren't too many good full length anime of either genre to begin with anyway. I'd guess that it'd be especially hard to make a 5 minute one.

yuasa is my favorite director for sure. If theres one thing I can say to help out people in OPs position, Id say look for the really creative stuff like this. Thats hard to explain what constitutes "creativity" but really, anime is best in its hidden gems. The kind of stuff that you hear of on a small imageboard by pure fucking chance and decide to look at it.

The same went for ultra heaven.


Oh damn, thank you, anon.
