Newish to Anime. Looking for must watch anime. Anonymous 11/14/2019 (Thu) 06:36:49 No. 124 [Reply]
I'm a 24 year old guy. The only anime I've watched is the entirety of Dragonball, which I absolutely love. Not only the action but the story and character depth that spans 100s of episodes as well.. However I'm looking for something that's quite the opposite now, I want a laid back/chill, wholesome, reasonably realistic anime that isn't too long running. Less than 100 eps for sure.. I am new to the world of anime, so if there are any obvious ones that are a must watch please tell me.
1 post omitted.
Cowboy Bebop
Berserk (1994)
Psycho Pass
Steins Gate
Samurai Champloo
All these are short and very good seinen anime, theres probably more that I'm forgetting

these are all quality suggestions,

would also add:

Ghost in the Shell
Wolf's Rain (gotta give it a chance, because it's gonna look like furry shit for the first couple episodes, but it gets really good)
Elfen Lied
Another (still watching, hoping it ends good)
serial experiments lain
legend of the galactic heroes
dead leaves
I'm sorry, but this is completely idiotic. I mean it's like you just said you watched the Avengers movies and now you're really into movies and want to know what you should watch next.

I mean... they're fucking movies... what in the serious fuck are you even babbling about?

Look, let me break this on down for you... pretend that video stores are still a thing and you've just walked into a Blockbuster... now, which section do you go to first...


...I mean, holy fuckin shit dude, do you have ANY gawd damn idea just how many anime series there are?

what are you watching this season anon?
Galaxy Express 999 good movie so far.
Blast from the past with all the 70s anime charm in it.
I'll check it out. I've been watching Azur Lane and Assassin's Pride. Both are not great, but the chick in Assassin's Pride is cute and I've been playing Azur Lane obsessively for over a year
Initial d, lel.

fuck yeah

Neither. This is a Masako Nozawa board
I like Funimation's dub much more than Ocean tbh. Also I usually like subbed anime, but Gokus Japanese voice actress is absolute ear cancer.

How Heavy are the Dumbells You Lift Anonymous 11/02/2019 (Sat) 13:44:46 No. 111 [Reply]
Granted, I'm only on the third chapter, but this manga hasn't done anything to maintain my interest. I thought I'd enjoy it, considering I'm a gym enthusiast myself. However, I may stop reading it and drop it.
I watched the anime, it was ok but only cause I like gym stuff
I've not seen the anime, but after seeing the manga, I'm not to highly motivated to watch it. I'm a gym enthusiast, I really thought I could relate to this series more, but I really don't.

Know any other gym-related mangas? I'm pretty sure I'm about to stop reading Dumbells.
eh not really baki is kinda /fit/ related, don't really know any others
welp, I too got tired of it pretty quickly
OP here again. I already stopped reading it. Most boring and bland story line I've seen in a while.

Asuka Asuka 09/25/2019 (Wed) 09:49:42 No. 35 [Reply]

Fuck off.

Let's talk about the ending. I think it's obvious from the build-up to that last scene that Asuka also managed to break free from the Fanta sea by her own will like Shinji just did, practically meaning that they are now the Adam and Eve of this new world. What I don't get is why Shinji immediately tries to kill her. Even at that point he still wants to be a fucking incel - this I understand, but him doing it right after defying Rei/Lilith made me cringe. Her reaction which was caressing his face while also maintaining a poker face and then blurting out her typical tsun tsun line was hilarious though. And of course Shinji had to break down and cry like a fucking faggot after eventually realizing he will now have to live and breed with her, just like how all the spergs who defended his characterization throughout the decades would react in the same situation. Anyone who says Shinji is relatable is a fucking mentally ill manchild who refuse to have personal responsibility in life, because they saw the same refusal to grow up in him, but I guess that's exactly what Anno wanted to get at.
> all for himself like a chad would.
I understand the idea however.
Rei is a emotionless doll. Fucking Rei is like fucking a manikin.

Taking Asuka and other woman on the other hand is a great idea.
>that they are now the Adam and Eve
No true, when kaworu and rei are talking it's clear that there are people quitting instrumentality too - we just don't see them.

Shinji tried to choke asuka because, once he quit instrumentality, he falls into the machine of misunderstandings that drives the whole work: he's afraid and rejects (destrudo) her. Asuka, instead, caresses him (libido), showing affection, and then once again with her harsh words attacks him: this teaches that a person can be both gentle and cruel, that what she felt inside that was showed through that gentle touch it's not what she aftwrwards formulated in words - another example of the ambiguity and dualism of human relationships.
And no, Shinji is not relatable, he's an extremely characterized individual, just like asuka and rei. Everyone in that shows represent an extremization of human traits.

I almost never watch anime anymore nowadays because the manga format allows authors and artists to be as crazy and meta as they want while in anime you're much more limited by budget constraints, the quality of voice acting involved, the animation, episode length, the production studio's own touches etc. An ancient but good example of this are the more mature oriented Tezuka manga works, such as a few scenes in the Siddharta Gautama series, where he utilized cinematic paneling techniques which do not work at all when they are actually animated.

I would start my manga reccs with a lewd, light reading one that is simply impossible not to like:
>Arakure Ojousama Wa Monmon Shiteiru
It's basically a boy meets girl story with the premise that the short haired, big boobed main girl is the school ojousama who has always abused her position and fame to get boys expelled because that's what ojous do. The boy is the public morals committee chairman who (rightfully) suspects that she would target him for expulsion next since he keeps getting ahead of her in tests and the like, and so tries his best to avoid getting involved with her. She then resorts to various attempts to lure him to get him caught doing indecent acts to her, but keeps getting hornier and hornier for him in the process. Hilarity ensues, with more than a bit of nice lewds along the way. I initially thought I would get pissed by the constant cock teasing for over 9000 chapters such a premise would usually bring, but after a few chapters it got me staying curious on how the ojousama would make a fool out of herself next.

Somebody posted pic related on the old 8/a/ which introduced me to this crazy ride.
