You have just been put in charge of creating an original anime for your favourite studio! What story will you come up with? Here is mine:
A loose adaptation of don quixote, instead of being obsessed with chivalry novels, the main character is obsessed with light novels and thinks he's a light novel protagonist, joined by his next door neighboor ie sancho (who should be a cute girl probably because anime), and maybe instead of a horse it's an old beat up bike or something. Make it like an adventure comedy that mostly follows the original plot but in modern day japan, and I think that would be pretty funny.
What ideas do you have sushis?

I just found out about this genre / subculture called 'solarpunk'. I think it's an attempt to push back towards utopian sci fi, but taking cautionary inspiration from cyberpunk, and taking inspiration from clean energy, hippie peace and love and just general techno utopianism.

I'd like to see an anime that pushes the boundaries of 'nothing actually happens' slice of life comfiness. The stories would follow a few friends doing random things to amuse themselves, maybe learning about the world and its technology, traveling, or building things. But mostly not having any responsibility or really having to do anything at all because the world has become so easy to get along in.
I'm thinking like in K-on friends hanging out vibe, but in K-on there are a lot of traditional "here's a problem how do they overcome it" type plots. For the plotlines I'm thinking something more like how in Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou most of the stories are Alpha just doing things because she wants to, mostly without any kind of conflict that would drive a more traditional story.


Slice of life in unusual settings is my absolute favorite genre, good taste roll

I really want like something about mermaids but like really deep sea, no interaction with actual humans, just slice of life/borderline no story anime in the deepest part of the sea with really cool fish and squids and stuff

maybe something like Arakawa Under The Bridge but a bit slower paced? idk

Woah that could be really cool and calming. It could have relaxing underwater sounds and distant whale calls. What would deep sea mermaids look like? could they have bioluminescence?

So we've been watching Magipoka on stream post-show when there's nothing else to watch, and I stumbled on a manga the other day called スーパードクターK (Super Doctor K)

I have to wonder if the dumb titty doctor who shows up in some episodes, スーパードクターK子 (Super Doctor K-Ko), isn't a reference to this


Traveling around being mean to cute monsters is a lot less cool then traveling around curing people with your deft surgery skills… the name is similar enough that I'm curious but I think it's a coincidence. Or maybe they are both making an allusion to something else.


Lol, I'm way overthinking this… It looks like "sugoi dokuta" shows up a lot on it's own, but our boy "sugoi dokuta K" is definitely the top suggested search for sugoi docters. There's also a bunch of other "doctor K", a 1999 korean movie, and an irl person calling themselves dr K in the west.
Seems like at least the latter is unlikely to be referencing the 1988 manga, but the former may be.
There's also other examples of name shortening to K, but being specifically "スーパードクターK" feels too close to just be coincidence. The suffix "Ko" it seems, mean "child" and is used on female names to make them seem cutesy. So K-Ko is like, trying to be a cutesy version of this epic doctor, which kinda fits her.
I haven't read the manga though. It could be there are other things that make this joke make more sense, or given the amount of time Dr K had been out for when magipoka was made, it could be a direct reference, but only to the most surface knowledge of "cool doctor name".

I have never been a great fan of modern dance music either but that didn't take all that much from the experience. The music isn't too annoying and is incorporated into the show quite well.

What I think makes the show actually worth watching are the actually lighthearted and comfy characters and animation that while nothing spectacular is quite fluid and makes for a great show to watch on a lazy weekend.

Dear Strong Bad, how do you play the keyboard with penguin flippers on?
For that matter, how the heck did they manage to take these outfits off while playing their instruments?
I liked this episode though. It's oddly satisfying to me that the girls are treating Sonia as just part of their friend group now.


>Dear Strong Bad, how do you play the keyboard with penguin flippers on?
wow, that reference brought me back www

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.

I've been getting into reading manga more regularly, so far I caught up on shimeji simulation which was amazing, and i read kira kira study which was decent but the ending felt rushed and unsatisfying, then i started reading chotto ippai!, but then it got a little too melodrama heavy so i stopped reading it. Then i randomly started reading Onii-chan is done for, which i wasn't expecting to like but it's actually quite good fun. If anyone has any recomendations for good slice of life cgdct manga (for context on my taste my favourite anime are hidamari sketch and gochiusa and sketchbook) i would greatly appreciate it. I always thought reading manga is too much effort but it's actually quite calming. And i can read on the train or something that is nice.


>Then i randomly started reading Onii-chan is done for, which i wasn't expecting to like but it's actually quite good fun.
good taste. did you know it's getting an anime adaptation?! I was really happy and surprised


I did not know that! I did not expect it to get an adaptation. It sure has some cute girls in it.


I really enjoy reading manga and I need to get back into it. I was reading the Wadanohara manga and it was pretty fun


I read shimeji simulation after I read all of girls last tour and needed more girls last tour and it fulfilled all of my hopes and more.

My overall rating: 2/10
This anime is literally just videogame-NPC dialogue played over a low-tempo jazz soundtrack. I'm not exaggerating, that's literally what this show is. The dialogue is so dull it's bewildering. Despite this apparently being a mystery show, it fails to induce any feeling of suspense or tension whatsoever, and is overall incredibly boring to watch. The lack of exposition is also crippling, particularly during the first half of the show where there is zero context at all for the events (or lack thereof) taking place. Throughout all this the MC has the personality of a beached fish and pretty much the entire cast is unlikable. Furthermore, although the production quality is high, both the art style and screenplay leave much to be desired. The visuals being quite polished doesn't change the fact that they are boring and dull. This anime doesn't even feel like entertainment.

Regardless of all this, it was reliably chill. There is basically zero high-tempo music and nobody ever yells. So, if you're looking for a show to fall asleep to, this would be an excellent choice for that. Plus, you won't miss anything if you pass out halfway through, I promise!

There is a 47-min sequel OVA which I masochistically hatewatched.
The setting looked nice and the visuals in general were a notch above the TV anime. However, all of the flaws I addressed above persisted. This OVA was just as astonishingly dull as the TV series.

I did not watch the special shorts but I bet they're awful. I did watch the Blurays though for the record.


Sorry you didn't like it sushi roll! It's funny to read your review though because that one ended up on my watch list because someone described it as "a calm slice of life with a backdrop of intelligence officers". I watched the first episode now and I think it might not be doing enough comfy slice of life to be a slice of life nor enough spy action or drama, so it's kinda in this weird in between place… which might be really appealing to some people. I think I may watch more of it sometime.

It doesn't do much of anything, and as a consequence it is indeed calm. I'd recommend it to someone trying to overcome benzodiazepine withdrawal or something lol.

I just watched "Are you Lost?". I liked it. Mild spoilers: the four gals are shipwrecked stranded on a deserted island, but one of them was trained by her dad since she was young to be a survival expert, so she takes care of and teaches the others, while they are in shock trying to adjust to the new way of life. Many cute flashbacks of her dad teaching her these skills.
The friendships and survival skills both feel comfy to me somehow. There is some fetish content to it, mostly piss. It is justified by the survival context, but may turn you off depending on how you feel about body fluids.


I read the manga recently… the end is totally open ended, ok! Umm… but yeah, I think they actually gave more explanation about the past in the anime than in the manga. It seems like not knowing was one of the themes though. If they explained how the world got how it is, it would undercut the feeling of the girls touring it.

This one too


I watched this so long ago that I totally forgot how cool the OP is. Such a visually amazing show.


Even words we’ve grown used to hearing,
Carry kindness between us,
Creating a strange place in which we belong.

Even if there are some parts a bit off,
They still manage to resonate with you,
And suddenly you’re smiling

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.

I cried a ton during episodes 7 and 12 of Sora no Woto last time I watched it. I was also quite drunk, but even completely sober I think those moments will always choke me up a bit.

There's been a lot, I'm a massive crybaby. With anime.. Millennium Actress, In This Corner of the World, Grave of the Fireflies all had me sobbing at the end. The one that feels the most like getting punched in the gut at the end is 0080 War in the Pocket, but Gundam in general tends to veer into the tragic.


>The one that feels the most like getting punched in the gut at the end is 0080 War in the Pocket
We watched this on stream some time ago and I definitely agree. That anime is brutal.


I'm trans also and this movie makes me cry too, though probably for different reasons. It's one of my favorite movies.

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.

probably "Kuramori".

y-you should watch the anime….


File: 1640854619049.jpg (178.95 KB, 700x600, 1613928504-675.jpg)

Alright, this is embarrassing, very embarrassing even.
I have watched the anime, twice even. Once in 2014 and once in 2020. Even worse is that a few minutes ago I suddenly had that realization and yes, it is Kuramori. Unfortunately I am too late to redeem myself here, sorry for being slow and thank you for your kindness.


I just love how uniquely Yoshitoshi ABe draws…you can always tell at a glance when he drew something.


File: 1649742571173.jpg (822.32 KB, 845x1200, 1477472163925.jpg)

Yeah he has a very distinct look to his art, I like it a lot. I really wish I was well-spoken or educated enough about art to put my finger on what makes it distinct. They feel grounded/real in a way most anime art doesn't. It's something about the color palette, the scratchiness of the lines, and the relatively unexaggerated proportions and expressions I think.
