What episode are you at? I haven't checked out past the first 6 that got released

Way too cute!


I've seen the first episode. Whoever put the file up forgot to include the subtitle track so I didn't understand 99% of the words. Is it me or did the squirrel say I'm human at the end?


watched 5 a few days ago, I'm using Asenshi's subs so that takes a bit more time to release.

Ohh gotcha. I felt that was the weakest episode so far but I still liked it, especially Michiru's character growth and the old coach dude's backstory. What I didn't like as much was how filler it felt, which seems unneeded in an anime original, especially something this high-budget. I had trouble reconciling the literal bloodsports within the world they've created too.

Do you remember the 21st night of September?
Love was changing the minds of pretenders
While chasing the clouds away

Our hearts were ringing
In the key that our souls were singing
As we danced in the night
Remember how the stars stole the night away

Hey, hey, hey!

If you actually managed to learn Japanese I would love some tips. How long did it take you? I'm slowly making progress, but I feel like I've been studying forever and I'm still far from fluency. Was there anything that really turned the tide for you? Or if you're not that advanced yet then I would love a study partner.

Looking at their past works, Kiyohiko Azuma was definitely aiming this manga to hit younger audiences. They really liked the SoL genre like in Azumanga Daioh and a lot of that leaks into Yotsubato!
Oh man I remember that I started off as self learning with the help of some friends irl who were from Japan. Eventually I found out of of /djt/ back on 4chan's /a/ back when it was still allowed on there. Ankideck definitely helped me out and watching dramas and anime without subs as well. For me to actually get to 3rd grade level comprehension I'd say a good 2-3 years if you practice daily.
I highly recommend you get to kanji as soon as you finish your hiragana and katakana. If you want to be certified to work in Japan or just have it on paper that you know Japanese then pick up the genki textbooks and any JLPT test book. Hopefully my post wasn't too long and hope you continue learning Japanese fellow sushi! がんばれ!


The weird thing is Kiyohiko's past work was basically only Azumanga. Looking at his Wiki page there was only one other manga (Wallaby) which only had one volume as far as I can tell. It's insane he's had a 20+ year career and only has three series because he's been working on Yotsuba for 80% of it.

相談してもらって、ありがとう! 2ー3年かかったこと聞くと安心させられました。一年反前から勉強し始めましたけど、毎日勉強することは一年間以下だけです。ANKIはめちゃ活用ことです。最近私も英語のSubtitlesを無くしてアニメを見ている。でも日本語のSubtitlesを付けることは分かり安くなると聞いましたんだから、日本語のSubtitlesを使っています。

I dunno if that's comprehensible, so I'll say it again: thanks for the advice! I feel better knowing it took 2-3 years to get to some sort of fluency. I'm like 1.75 years in, although I've only been studying daily for just under a year. Anki is a life saver. I've been doing a vocab deck with kanji since near the beginning which was the best decision I ever made. I also started watching anime with Japanese subs recently, although if it gets very dialogue heavy it's slow going.
I kinda wish I'd started with the Genki textbooks, but now I'm as far in as I am I don't want to shell out $60 for something I probably know half of.

Aaah I didn't want to watch the final episode because it means no more cute girls fishing, but I ended up watching it anyway…

From coronavirus casualty to highlight of the (next) season. Doga kobo always delivers.

Yes, it was a nice laid-back anime with good character interaction and situational comedy. Almost makes me want to go fishing but I know how cruel the 3D world is so I won't even try.


I don't even know where I'd go fishing, the rivers here are all polluted and probably fenced off anyway

How would you defend anime/manga against the accusation that it's sexist? Obviously there are anime/manga this doesn't apply to, but I'm talking more like moe/bishoujo type stuff, like 90% of what's on this board.

I'm just playing devil's advocate here, and if you exclusively like gritty action manga like Berserk this doesn't apply to you, but think things like Konosuba – Aqua being a 16 or 17 year old character with no pants and huge boobs with jiggle physics. Most moe media focuses on high school or middle school characters and is not shy about sexualizing them. If someone you respected approached you and your Kuroneko dakimakura pillow and said you were promoting a sexist subculture how could you reasonably defend yourself?

I think it often detracts from the storytelling; if a story is trying to do something else, shoving tiddies in the camera breaks the coordination of the visuals, scripts, sounds etc… that can make movies and tv compelling.

That kind of fanservice is also rarely appropriate in that even when sexual content is the intent, it's just really cringey when the way that sexuality is presented is so immature (I realize that many of these stories are told from the perspective of teenagers, but many aren't).

Another problem is sexualizing stuff that just shouldn't be, like little kids or indefensible sexual harassment.


>uniform in the presentation of girls and their personalities, they all hover around the girl on the left of >>929's pic
I dunno, looking at recent anime it looks to me like most designs are in the middle of those two extremes. They all just look like anime girls in various artstyles to me so I just don't see it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


It's kind of funny that Osaka is the one used in that picture since she's the only character who I don't remember any significant fanservice of in Azumanga.

Not sure what you mean by that but you probably just don't remember the dozen trash shows with cardboard cutout girls that aired every season in the years after Love Hina. I'm also not really sure what your timeline is since the left Osaka looks pretty Strike Witchy and that's nearly fifteen years old now, from back during the heyday or panty and jiggle harems.

I think fanservice these days has shifted more to a model of showcasing overall attractive characters to try to engage the viewer both down there and up top, rather than just outright titillation, though series that stick to the old model like the seasonal monmusu ecchi shows seem to be pretty popular for doing so. The animation in general has also improved a lot since the early days of digital anime and the trends in character design and animation style have changed so I wouldn't expect to see the same sort of fanservice anyways.

Either way though this is still just a slice of the overall anime market we're talking about. There's never been any uniformity across the medium so the whole thread is kind of moot.


Also, the shift in fanservice I mentioned started like ten, twelve years ago and really solidified maybe six or seven years ago. By the time the first season of Highschool DxD came out it was already kind of an oddity among the most popular shows of the time with regards to its style of fanservice.


>Another problem is sexualizing stuff that just shouldn't be
I don't like declaring things about fictional works "problems"
Can't we just ignore things we don't like?

thinking about Anime and manga characters on rolling stock in Japan again…


Is this still something that happens often? It feels like an artifact of the second half of the 00s up to early 2010s where there was still this big overlap among otaku of all stripes.

It's all love live and mobile games now. GuP had regional appeal to the town where it was set so I wouldn't be surprised if this train is close to there.


I dunno but I read something recently about manhole covers getting decorations with Uzaki-chan, Asuka and Rei, Kino, the Oreimo girls, and others. So I'm sure it still happens.
