They're in Das Finale but they've been around since 2014 or so in the Ribbon Warrior manga. The movies have a kind of different version of them though even if the characterization is pretty similar.

I'm really looking forward to watching the World Ends With You adaptation.


I honestly don't even remember what SnK was about, I remember the plot was a fucking mess early as hell and not being interested at all despite everyone telling me it was a masterpiece and me telling them they were dumb as fuck
Clearly I had the bigger brain that day.

Funny to think I 'dropped' SnK 8 years ago now that it's ended. I just couldn't get into it at the time and still can't bother urging myself to watch it.

Cyber City Oedo 808 is great, dude. The dub is also pretty good and has plenty of fitting swearing. Hope you enjoy the rest of it.

I mean for me personally I had only vaguely kept up with SnK because I cared about since middle school. I only watched the first season and ova, but I started reading the manga when season 2 was delayed. I stopped keeping up with the manga after 2017 and that was when I slowly stopped paying attention to it. The ending did make me feel sad, moreso out of nostalgia knowing it's been with me for almost 7 years. At least I can finally say farewell to the last shonen series that remained since my school years.

Black Clover TV anime may be coming to an end this Tuesday, March 30, but that's not the last we'll be seeing of Yuki Tabata's series on the screen. The official JUMP COMICS CHANNEL YouTube account went live with a special promo celebrating the series and revealing plans for a Black Clover movie!

Nice first episode. What stood out to me the most was the dialogue, it's surprisingly easy on the ears. Everything flows and fits naturally. Seems to be a pretty intriguing mystery being set up as well.

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?

My thoughts on the Berserk adaptations are provided below.

Aside from reading a small amount of the manga a very long time ago, my first encounter with Berserk was via the Ougon Jidai-hen movies sometime around 6 years ago. My memory of the movies is fading, which is what triggered my watching the original 1997 TV adaptation. I enjoyed the movies and rated them 7/10. I liked the story above all else.

Anyway, I watched the 1997 TV adaptation of Berserk much more recently, and here's what I have to say about that:

The original adaptation is better in terms of visuals and overall production quality, especially with consideration to production year. I much prefer the art style of the original adaptation. It also has a longer total runtime which is used effectively for greater character development and more plot detail. I would say it is better directed as well.

The story itself is very good, and the adaptation is well executed and well directed. Berserk's strongest characteristic is the writing, but in one respect it is also its greatest flaw from my perspective. My biggest issue with Berserk is the main character — Guts. He is poorly characterized and simply boring as a main character. The series would be much better if Griffith were the main character and Guts were a side character. Griffith is a far more compelling and interesting character than Guts. The same could even be said for Casca, albeit to a lesser degree. Although the 1997 adaptation does a much better job of exploring Casca's character arc than the movies. In any case, I wish that Guts hadn't soaked up so much screentime.

The setting is classic dark medieval fantasy. It is fairly immersive. It is complemented by the high level of visual detail, most notably in landscape frames and backgrounds.

The OST is suitable and pretty good overall (aside from the grating OP and ED songs). However, it would have been nice if there was more variety in the OST, considering the length of this series. Some songs, although they are good, are repeated quite frequently. Voice acting is good as well; the VAs are quite well matched for their character roles, and there's a wide range of voices among the cast.

My overall rating for the 1997 TV adaptation: 8/10

Berserk: Golden Age Arc (2012) is pretty good

I just finished rewatching Toradora, which incidentally was one of the first series I watched when I was getting into anime. At first I was surprised by how much better it was than I remembered, but by the end I understood why I left feeling lukewarm after the first time.

The first 10 episodes were great; subtly building up Ryuuji and Taiga's relationship while they each think they're in love with someone else until episode 8 where Ryuuji almost drowns and Taiga flips out in front of everyone and screams that he's hers. The above mentioned dynamic is the soul of the show, but unfortunately from here there's virtually no progression until the finale.

After the beach house episodes the narrative progressions stalls horribly. The culture festival arc centers around the drama that Taiga's dad is coming for her. Ryuuji and Minorin have strong opinions about why that's a good or bad thing but don't explain it well to each other at all, resulting in the classic "misunderstanding drama" which is just annoying to watch. I don't even remember what else happens until the ski-resort episode near the end, and meanwhile Ryuuji and Taiga are both trying to help each other with their romantic endeavors and refusing to acknowledge their feelings for each other, just like the beach house 11 episodes prior. There were moments in the first half of the show where you almost think the Taiga and Ryuuji area awakening to their feelings, but it's almost like they've regressed since then. We could have cut all of that and all we would have lost was a lot of sad Minorin.

So I've been slogging through the second half of the series waiting for a couple of episodes of payoff, but it isn't until ONE episode before the finale they confess to each other (except it gets interrupted by a phone call for some reason so it's not even properly satisfying), then–despite only moments ago having admitted they have feelings for each other and not even having kissed yet–they decide to [i]runaway together and get married[/i] out of nowhere because Ryuuji had a very minor disagreement with his mom. They runaway together and have their first kiss (which was a really good scene), and after that Taiga leaves him without saying goodbye to attend another school, presumably to better herself for his sake. /fin WTF?!

I was so invested in the characters at first, but the show let my emotional connection fade with 13 fairly worthless episodes (there was some goPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The prospect of watching some anime or movies together was brought up in /lounge/, let's use this thread to plan it! Please let me know if any Sushis are interested, and what kind of time works for you personally. If you have any favorites that you think would make a good watchalong, mention that as well!

sushi roll I don't think Drosselmeyer wanted the finale to go like that at all, given his talk with Kraehe and what happened to Edel


Kraehe outdid herself and gave him an even better ending. He seemed more than content rocking in his chair beyond time and space.

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.

Thank you! mangaupdates seems like it's exactly what I was looking for



Note that on the scanlation pages in mangaupdates there's no link to their websites, only social media.
For the links you have to search their names in the search bar and then, on the results, next to their names will be their websites.

There's also this list:

Are you saying it's cumbersome to download the manga or that it's annoying to organize them?
If it's the former there are multiple ways to make it easier like Tachiyomi, Free Manga Downloader (FMD) (the fmd-project-team fork), HDoujin Downloader, mangadex-dl (there's multiple forks), gallery-dl, hakuneko and manga-py


It's just that I'm for some reason just psychologically opposed to having something on my hard drive that I'm unlikely to use much
I dunno man it's probably just the fact that manga is 4000 separate pictures while an anime of the same length is feasibly 40


Mangadex update, they need 2-3 more weeks
It's never going to come up again


Please don't store manga as image files. Zip them up, change the extension to .cbz, then use a reader. Boom, your 5,000 image folder is now 20 files. I'm honestly astonished that stuff like Tachiyomi doesn't do this automatically for each chapter.
If you are on Windows, CDisplayEX has a thumbnailer so you can see the covers in explorer. I prefer using Yacreader because it doesn't need to load the whole cbz to let you read (I keep everything on a NAS), but I keep CDisplayEX around for the thumbnails.
