There's a lot of good fucking shit being aired this fall. Amirite? What's your favorite this season?

>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.

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.

Currently I'm rewatching K, since a series of movies are being released recently. I also just finished rewatching Record of Lodoss War a few days ago.


File: 1539446430237.jpg (293.57 KB, 850x1844, __cirno_ex_keine_fujiwara_….jpg)

I don't tend to rewatch stuff. Going through the same story is just a little depressing to me. One exception is Welcome to the NHK. It's relatable in an emotional way that makes me want to rewatch it and compare it to my own life.
A few comedic shows like Great Teacher and DLHB are also nice to go back to every so often.

Fullmoon wo Sagashite. Despite it being a "classical" shoujo story, it actually manages to reach really mature points and the story feels like it has something besides the "love story with overidealized guy" (specially since there is a reason for that).

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

Which do you prefer? I actually like watching anime more. With a book you get total freedom to imagine things the way you like and with animation there's a lot for your senses to chew on. Manga is in that mid-ground where you don't have as much freedom or stimulus. Even visual novels are better since they have sound and color. Also, I like binging through stuff all at once. With an anime, you only have to wait a couple months to do that, but manga that's currently being published could take years to finish.
In manga's favor, it's sometimes better at actual story telling since nothing's cut and individual panels can have a lot more detail on them. I also get that anime basically works like an advertisement for its source material, but it's still not hard for me to pick between one or the other.


File: 1536827589509.png (217.16 KB, 412x568, 1179530634433.png)

Mangas usually have more unique premises and more freedom for the creator since animation is such an expensive demeanour, so they usually pay off for the lack of visual stimuli with better told plots (not held by time constraints / episode timetables), a more unique/defined artstyle and something more in between. Manga's can be way shittier than anime's lows though, since the lack of pretty stuff to look at coupled with bad writing, a bland artstyle and characters can make for a total flippin' borefest.

I prefer mangas myself. Lately these past few seasons there hasn't been anything that interesting airing, at least in my POV. And it's always fun to go on a trip and find underappreciated doujin gems or more underground stuff than it is with anime, since that medium is so commercialized.

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.

Based Shouwa, always with the best stuff.
Anything from Heisei onwards is absolute shit.
