Noncurrent Anime Thread

I started rewatching Mushishi lately, because I haven't seen the OVA or any of the extra seasons, only the first one many many years ago. It's as great as I remember it and I can't wait to get to the stuff I haven't seen.

What have you all been watching lately?

Yoshitoshi ABe thread

Talk about anything that ABe has had a hand in. Anime, manga, doujinshi, art, etc!

I finished Texhnolyze on stream not too long ago and loved it, even if it was a bit of a tough watch at times. Certain parts of that anime absolutely blew me away (namely the scenes on the surface) and more than made up for its shortcomings.

Wonder Egg Priority

So I finally got around to starting this, let's talk about it! I'll post my thoughts as I get further in.

I'm not sure what the fuck I'm getting into here but it's giving me strong suffering flags. Really pretty show, looks on the same level as modern KyoAni stuff like Chuunibyou and Hibike and AmaBuri. I love the character designs so far and the dream world stuff is very fun to watch. OST near the end of episode 1 stood out to me as well. Among other things it kinda reminds me of Yume Nikki with the whole "shut-in girl explores weird dream world" thing

So what I get from just seeing episode 1 is that she visits some kind of dream world with the power to bring her suicided friend back to life, and to do so she has to play along with some weird beetle gacha to "protect" other suicided girls in the dream world for… reasons?

R: 7 / I: 1
Have any of you met other "otaku" irl? A small part, but admittedly a part of the reason I got into anime is because it's a relatively small subculture in which it should theoretically be easy to connect with other people over a shared interest. I haven't invested that much time into it, but already I can probably find at least one anime or manga I've consumed in common with any given otaku. It's fun to hang out in forums like this, but has anyone had any experience connecting with people, coincidentally or on purpose, over this shared hobby?

non anime/manga otaku media general

Let's have a thread to discuss visual novels, light novels, and other non anime/manga related otaku media! I would preffer if we avoid v-tuber discussion in this thread, I personally consider it more youtube/streamer culture than otaku culture. However if you feel differently that is okay.

Recently I have been getting into visual novels and eroge. My favorite so far is subarashiki hibi.
Right now I am playing chaos;head and Sharin no Kuni, Himawari no Shoujo. Chaos;head is pretty good, but it's a little frustrating, because it feels like characters often speak in a cryptic way to the main character for no reason other than to stretch out the plot. I find myself frustrated with the characters sometimes although in general i would say the vn does a good job with regards to making the reader unsure of what's real and what's delusion, putting them in the emotions of the main character.
I am not really far enough into sharin no kuni to make a judgement on it yet, but I thought it was interesting the the mc is a stoner. Not something you see often in japanese media.
What is your favourite vn? what have you been reading lately?

Manga Thread

Talk about what manga you've been reading!

I've been reading an older manga called Yume Tsukai by Ueshiba Riichi. It's about magical shrine maidens with weird powers solving paranormal mysteries and stuff. Fairly standard concept but what makes it good in my opinion is just how crazy and bizarre the stories get, as well as some really fantastic art and a nostalgic sort of comedy. It's sometimes goofy, sometimes quite emotional, and other times borders on Junji Ito-esque horror scenarios. I really like the creepy body horror stuff, and the comedy between the weirdo cast is fun. I especially like the over the top lolicon character.

Has japanese media ever made you cry? Be it manga, anime, LNs, VNs, etc.
While crying might not be the epitome of what we call comfy not all tears necessarily come out from sadness as I've heard of people crying on powerup scenes as silly as that sounds.

Majo no tabitabi

Will you listen to her stories?
R: 11 / I: 2
When I think about WHY I like anime one of the main reasons I always fall back on is that it has genres that I don't think exist in Western media. I'm talking specifically about SoL, and even more specifically about stuff like K-ON; Kobayashi's Dragon Maid; Girl's Last Tour; Yotsuba; etc… All of them have extremely low levels of drama and personal conflict, elements of comedy (although notably not comedy focused), and a strong focus on warm, happy, non-romantic relationships. So much of Western television is either hyper dramatized or straight comedy. I can be gripped by Breaking Bad, and I can laugh at Seinfeld, but I can't think of any Western shows that evoke the emotional connection I feel towards certain anime.

Can you think of an example of a Western show/movie that comes close to the SoL genre?

As we danced in the night

Devil's Advocate

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?

What're you already planning on watching? Anything that catches your eye?

Unfortunately the virus has made this season like half the size of what it was meant to be, so probably only fishing and Fruits Basket for me at first and maybe I'll pick up Kanojo and Uzaki-chan. Feels like a super weak season, at least partially because there's so little to choose from.

Samachan User CSS

For those interested, I tried out using Samachan's theme here and it looks very much 1:1 as it originally appeared back on Samachan, as long as you have Yotsuba B selected and use this to override that.

To use Samachan's theme, copy and paste miko.css contents in User CSS in [Options] to the top right of the page, and make sure you select Yotsuba B in the General tab.
