I wouldn't compare that art to Nakayama Masaaki. That man there seems to have his mouth on the side of his face.



1) I didn't compare the art, but the manga in general, which is evry similar to the themes of Fuan no Tane, for example

2)character is a female, so you haven't even read a single page

3) don't critique comparisons before reading even a single page.



I watched the original movie yesterday. I'm not a huge fan of jap live action, but, since I really enjoy anything indie, I decided to give it a try.
Man, the first part of the movie is kinda crappy, but in the middle it gets really good. I really liked it.


If you liked Fuan no Tane, I recommend Koushiou Radio.


I had to read Kouishou Radio again to get it.

My body is sore after some relatively intense physical activity over the past couple of days, and I was thinking how nice it would be to spend some time in a hot spring bath. I remember soaking in a few different hot springs in the western north america, mostly around the Idaho/ Wyoming/Northern Utah area, but also a couple around Banff, ALberta, but I haven't been in one in ages. With all of my weeby inclinations, I found myself wondering what traditional Japanese baths are like. I think the tradition is much older. I can imagine that original inhabitants of the Americas may have also had a hot spring bath tradition, but it seems like white people run most of them in the states these days. But yeah, I know next to nothing about onsen. If anybody has any info or better yet, stories, I'm all ears.

Dude. I've always been weak, but I find attraction to strong women because they are attractive even in their 50's. An example is Naoko Oosawa. But it takes hard work to do that, and I have been doing cardio in the gym and diet for 6 years and nothing. I feel so inferior to these women yet I wish to be with them, to be like them in order to be worthy of them. I feel inferior into being a bookworm so nice that you do physical activity. Picture is Oosawa.



cardio won't give you that look. you need to start a lifting routine if you want to crush things with your thighs like she probably can and so on

What anime got you sucked in to all this anime business

I think Avatar the Last Airbender was the first anime I watched, if it even counts that is. Fullmetal Alchemist was probably the one that got me into it all.

I haven't watched anime in a while though…


Bought ghost in the shell on vhs in 96 via some kind of mail-order. I miss those days without internet :( "Sounds cool - must have!"

Dragon Ball Z got me started but G Gundam solidified my love for anime.


File: 1388129648302.jpg (1000.86 KB, 1600x1200, Berserk_wallpapers_9.jpg)

>Toei animation
MY NIGGAH! Have you checked out Kyousougiga? Its pure 10/10. Please, I seriously recommend it.


So my first anime didn't really get me sucked into all that anime biz, but that's because my first anime was Studio ghibli's Spirited away, followed by Grave of the fireflies. Not to say they were bad or anything, because they were masterpieces. But it led me to being mildly interested in anime, and accepting of it.

I guess that I have to say it wasn't just one anime that got me sucked in. It went as such. Yugioh/Pokemon->Inu-Yasha/YuYu Hakusho->Haibane Renmei->Naruto (But now I don't really like it much at all, sorry to those who love it still)->FLCL->Berserk. [spoiler] You know whats funny about this post? Every anime I listed was marked as a misspelled work, except of course for Berserk, but also Naruto for some reason [/spoiler]

However, after that time period, my family went homeless and I lost touch with anime. What actually got me back in was when my cousin Nate introduced me to Mirai Nikki, then simultaneously watching Berserk again. But then the real roll started when I started hanging out with new otaku friends, some of whom browse this board. They turned me on to the Monogatari series, I started browsing /a/ and found many more animes to watch. My favorites are Berserk, Kyousougiga, Monogatari, FLCL, Cromartie High, and Sayonara Zetsunou Sensei.

…So guys, whats coming up this next season?

I saw a lot of anime before I become a frequent watcher FMA, eva stuff like that. But K-On! got me hooked on cute 2d girls, I still remember back when it came out waiting anxiously for it to be subbed, repeating the K-On! opening for hours on end with a huge smile on my face. After that I looked for more shows like it, and basically moved into the medium.

Awful pretentious character.

I finished the manga. Pretty good, specially because of the ending (I always wondered what happened after all). It also shows off a lot of things that may have not been so clear in the anime.

Anyway I adore the speculation you had to give in the original series so…
Dunno, lovely, after all. Also, I'm really in love Sadamoto's style, so it was really refreshing to look at. He managed to make it a good manga even with the different branches it takes compared with the 'canon' of the Series.


So how about the fact that the sequel theory relied heavily on Yui's apparent absence, but 3.0 came along and Fuyutsuki bluntly and blatantly tells Shinji that his mom is in Unit-01 (even the original series was nowhere near this direct in regards to the soul inside Unit-01).


3.0 (the English dub) will be screened at various theaters in the US in January 2014.

Does anyone know why - and how - the "nudity must be blurred" law still exists in Japan? It was instituted by the US during the WWII occupation. How the fuck is it *still* in effect in an eastern society like Japan?

Isn't there also some genital parade in Japan?


Any material that might negatively affect the 'natural' feeling of shame that is linked to anything sexual is banned by law.

In practice, they have for some reason decided to just blur or cover with black bars or make a 'proud sword' a proud swor and call it good after that. It's more a practice than a law.


I think it's some vague "obscenity" law that has come to be defined as "literally anything goes just as long as you blur out the genitals".

Fun fact: child porn was legal in Japan until 1999, when it was made illegal due to pressure from the US.


>Japanese politicians
>changing any law ever



What is a "proud sword"?

Does Uboachan know of Gegege No Kitaro?

I love GeGeGe no Kitaro. I've only seen the '60s version and the '80s version, though.


Have you read the Manga? Pretty damn good, though there isn't much translated sadly.


File: 1383251630134.gif (30.96 KB, 475x475, 2606429.gif)

Speaking of which, you can find the manga here:


34 chapters, though Kitaro's Night Tales ends rather abruptly and the whole thing gets rebooted into one-shots. So keep that in mind while reading.


did you guys see the short anime Hakaba Kitaro that came out a couple of years ago? it was the fuckin shit… only 12 episodes, though


File: 1384875022761.jpg (209.61 KB, 500x500, 513945.jpg)

I watched it right after finishing the manga. Really good stuff! As I understand there's a Kitaro series every decade, and it's been this way since 1960.

So, with the final episode of Watamote having aired on Crunchyroll yesterday, what did everyone think of it?
6 posts and 3 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


It was rather depressing than cringeful. I began imagining what Tomoko would be like as an adult and was instantly reminded of my high school friends who could never get a date. They just sit at home all day now watching anime and soap operas, play ACNL, and babble on Twitter about nothing into the void.

And then I realised that was also me.
Then I cringed.


I can only wonder what your feels were when you saw that one episode with the club submission.


Are they happy?


File: 1381867811240.jpg (97.54 KB, 1280x720, tomo_agony.jpg)

People aren't made for happiness. Fleeting satisfaction, perhaps, but definitely not happiness.
