How has anime/nip stuff changed your personality? What were you like after you really got into it compared to before?

In elementary school I probably spent more time in the office than in class. I almost compulsively did stuff to tick the teacher off and she wasn't actually that great considering how poorly she dealt with me. Around middle school I started watching typical slice of life crap. I started comparing myself to the characters. They were polite, courteous and thoughtful. They just seemed better than me, so I started trying to emulate them. It wasn't an immediate change, but I grew to be a lot more respectful of adults and in control of myself. It sort of put me on a better path. I did also start noticing how much more freedom characters seemed to have compared to me in my suburban environment, which i'm still kind of bitter about, but I wouldn't consider getting more perspective a bad thing.


I adopted quite a bit of japanese mentality, prioritizing harmony of a group now over self-affirmation. It's a double edged sword though. I'm bad at reading the air and can't handle arguments or direct criticism well.

Ooh this is something I've thought about a lot. I think it has definitely changed my life in a pretty dramatic way.

Like you, I found that slice of life stuff made me try to be a better version of myself. Everyone in those shows maintains a very positive attitude, are kind to the people around them, and society reciprocates them for it. It made me more like that and has helped me out with making friends. Kindness goes a long way.

I also think my sense of humour has been changed dramatically. Like, Japanese humour is really freaking weird, and I feel like those who didn't grow up with it might not "get it" if I show it to them. Western stuff doesn't really do it for me any more.

I also just feel like some of the Japanese mentality has permeated my mind in some way or another. I watched way too much anime during my formative years, so I'm sure I act just a bit weird for a westerner. Even just repeating stupid anime mannerisms. Who knows.

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.


Manga usually gets the more outlandish plots. With a manga, you could get anything from top tier quality to the worst cancer ever drawn and published. With anime, the range is less wide; you're either getting a good manga with added sound, colour, &c or you're getting a not so good manga with added sound, colour, &c.
Honestly, I'd usually at least read the manga to get the full story, no cuts. Anime adaptations are usually watchable, but few are really good.


Added sound and color would make a visual novel. Motion is the biggest advantage anime has over manga.


I prefer manga because the art is more attractive and I can follow the story at my own pace. Anime is usually adapted from manga and they change so many things it doesn't resemble the original; I also dislike the voice acting, be it in japanese or english.

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.

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.

File: 1539385337169.jpg (29.97 KB, 371x269, Kprojectpromoimage.jpg)


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

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.

>I would move this to /NEET/ all the animé goes there, your more likely to get a thread going.

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.
