The thing that stings the most is that most shitposters ban evade anyway. Those punishments seem to do more harm to genuine posters. Have you been banned from just /a/?

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!

IOff topic but I have been watching this anime also and 6 episodes in I think it is fine for what it is expected more of a haibane renmei type art style aside from the MC and a few others it is not very Abe like.
What are other sushi's thoughts on this anime?


only just remembered… two weeks past without noticing ;_;


Just found this thread, I will try to join next week


I posted some thoughts on it in the ABe thread


i caught the tail end of the new higurashi with some sushi rolls a couple days ago on kissu and i think that it would be a lot of fun.

It's a New Year and a new season! A bit late, but what's everyone interested in?

It's the intro screen to the GuP: Great Tankery Operation game.


Only Non Non Biyori and Yuru Camp. Supposedly Aria the Crepuscolo should also air that season, if this really happens then that too.

Still not sure what the plot is but kind of interesting they brought in Japanese slenderman.
Feel like I must be missing references or something, though, since this episode still didn't make any sense.

Oh hey the new Hataraku Saibous are out this season too, I didn't even realize
It's a pretty good (bad?) timing for them too. Wonder if it was intentional.

Seriously what the hell is the plot? It's creepy sure but where are we going with this? We still have no information whatsoever on what these things actually are or where this even is.

I was even wondering for ages like where the hell is the next episode it's not showing up on my RSS feed
Turns out I didn't subscribe to the RSS even though I downloaded the first episode because I'm a dumbass.

What is it with Japanese people and 海だあああ? They live on a fricking island, and a narrow one too, surely you can see the ocean from a good fraction of it. It's not like someone from like I dunno Iran or India or Russia or something where the ocean is actually something you basically never have a chance to see.

Also, what is SSA doing to these videos to make them so damn small? I'm not complaining or anything but I noticed recently that video sizes were ballooning to enormous proportions with single HorribleSubs episodes being close to 500 MB for a 720 episode, meanwhile SSA has 100 MB episodes for the same resolution. Are they just optimizing better?

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.

Really want a little pendant or something with the angel smiley from the logo on it
Good read. I basically always took it to mean you had to get help from outside as well. The scene where Reki finally asks Rakka to help her after showing all her insecurities is so powerful


Since I'm watching Niea_7 again with some sushi rolls here I may as well post some thoughts on it. Only done with the first 3 episodes but I still find the gags and character interactions extremely funny. This is one of those shows where I find it hard not to smile constantly while watching it. I also like that behind the sillyness there is themes of poverty and potentially even some stuff about culture shock and integration, although I'll have to wait and see if that becomes more prevalent.

Also, Niea is extremely cute, I really love her character design. Sasuage Abe.
Well I finally got around to it. Not sure how many people are still here who watched that stream though.


Very interesting links, thank you both.
What is the meaning of the world in your opinion?


Episodes 4-6 of Niea_7 were good as well, especially episode 4 which I thought was the best one so far. I liked that it was a little more character focused and emotional, and I really liked Chie and her dad as characters. I was glad to see they weren't just one-off characters. The other episodes with the gaming tournament and the rival bathhouse were fun as well but not quite as impactful and I felt like some of the gags wore a little thin, although there was still plenty of quality ones and I found myself cracking a smile a lot. I'm curious to find out if they will do more episodes focusing on character growth and Mayu's backstory and aspirations. The latter was hinted at a little bit when she was wondering if she had anything she cared for like Chie cared for the store and her father.


Niea can be cute but I find a lot of her reactions or way her face is drawn not cute a lot of the time.
Watching niea-7 also up to episode 7 or 8 I just finished the rival bathhouse one it gets a little too silly at times for me and could allude to more serious stuff without becoming serious iself like haibane renmei.

I guess I will need to watch more and finish it to fully develop an opinion about it.

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?

nasu is still embarrassed about how bad the h-scenes are and doesn't want anyone to ask about them


Isn't the new version non-H anyway?


I've recently played Chaos;head, House in Fata Morgana and started Robotics;Notes. I strongly recommend Fata Morgana, it was one of the best stories I've read


yes this way he has an excuse instead of pissing everyone off with blue dragon shit like in realta nua
sad too because shiki is kind of a very sexual character and tsukihime as a whole has more underlying sexual tension than fsn


Any sound novel fans here? I thought this game called Terrors for the Wonderswan sounded quite neat:

Is this that Trevor person they're obsessed with?


its t at his best yes


I'm very much enjoying Pikamee playing through Darks Souls 3.


It's pretty funny how she swears more and more as she dies and becomes more agitated


The fact that she turns "piece of esto" into an insult is really cute

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.

The single highest rated manga on mangadex and it's actually pretty good

Thank you for your enthusiasm comrade

Varys was a loser, dunno what you're on about. His entire plan revolved around bringing some crazy dragon slut back just so she could burn everything down apparently

Reading shortcuts. It's 1-2 page long unrelated gag comics, with 1-2 running characters every so often. Most of the jokes are low brow, but pretty funny. It can get somewhat confusing at points because some of the jokes depend on you knowing whats it's parodying, mostly you need to know about kogals and the culture that lead to them.


File: 1610385936671.jpg (270.79 KB, 1055x1500, 21633.jpg)

Reading cutie mutie. The main gist of it is that its one of those "Oh it looks cute, but is actually really dark" manga, does that have a name?, and the actual plot is people getting powers from sexual trauma. The whole shtick is so/so. The story has no grey areas so the overwhelming cuteness and edginess just whiplash back and forth creating an almost comedic tone.I think this might be the books first few chapters growing pains. The implied theme, 'Why do I have to suffer for the sake of others?', seems like it could be explored interesting in the kids backstories, child abused to have powers, exploited idol, honors student. If you don't like how this sounds just drop the manga because the scanlators didn't even finish it.

Pick the most obscure anime in your top 10. If somebody else in the thread has seen it you lose.

>Ichigo Mashimaro

It's not super obscure, but it's the best I got.

>no one remembers it and not many watched it
I remember it being fairly popular back when it came out, at least in the beginning when it was episodic. At some point a plot got tacked on though and it became just another half-assed LN advertisement, albeit a very pretty one.
The OVA was great though.

The LNs ended in a couple volumes anyways. I don't know why they always try to shoehorn all this random crap into 12 episodes instead of just distill the essence of the source material or adapt the first volume or two really well to draw in readers. It's always disappointing.


This is a fun movie. I didn't realize it was overlooked.

So many interisteng Anime in these thread :)

The most obscure Anime I know is "Eguchi Hisashi no Nantoka Narudesho!". Not sure if i would call it one of my top 10 favorites but i enjoyed the weird sense of humor a lot.


ugh, Onee-san


I know this one. Still laughing at the Vulgar Family gag.
