Anymore anime about music production and/or DJing?
I thought it was a cute episode, but the main character seems pretty obnoxious, though it's ends up personally being more charming and entertaining to me than annoying.


Anime about DJing in particular is pretty niche, though this is more of an idol anime in disguise anyway. There's Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou https://anidb.net/anime/11466
but you should also try some stuff like Bang Dream, Hibike Euphonium, Beck, and Detroit Metal City if you haven't.


>Tonkatsu DJ Agetarou
Thanks for this! It seems like exactly what I"m looking for

First episode and we've already got a full-scene flashback to earlier in the episode. That's budget for ya. That being said, it actually looks pretty good for a 3DCG anime, even if the main character's animation is kinda obnoxious.


Why do people keep trying to make 3DCGI anime a thing
It looks bad ffs

Did we see Shion at all this episode? What the game shop owner said makes me believe Mion is working at the Angel Mort. And I don't think Shion would have the influence to be able to rally people at the end.


You don't need to do both. The production values aren't great for the anime but it's a pretty decent adaptation and only fifty-something episodes which comes out to maybe a third as long as it takes to read the VN.


Looking at this picture really makes me think, when did anime become so shiny? Hair always was but I feel as if people's faces were never so ridiculously glossy.

Well I'll be danged. Every time I've tried that before I ended up aborting it early since the output looked like it was stuck in an endless loop. It seems like the video output starts at the point in the stream when I ran the command though, so I guess I still need to either run it before the stream starts or after it ends in order to get the whole thing. Luckily I also ran it in another directory after the stream ended just in case.

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?

Recently rewatched it – Dennou Coil is one of my favorite pieces of media, period. Aside from the other sushi roll that mentioned it in their list earlier up the thread, I've only met one other person that knows of it, and they were the one that introduced me to it in the first place.

The themes feel similar to Serial Experiments Lain, which is admittedly another one of my favorite shows, but while Lain leans significantly into the terror and isolation that arrives with the internet primarily, Dennou Coil takes a significantly more optimistic approach that treats those ideas with the same seriousness, but in a different way that makes it feel distinctly real. I could probably parse it out if I had more time, but suffice it to say that if you grew up with the internet as a kid, you will likely relate in some way to Dennou Coil personally.

The first time I watched it, I felt it may have had some pacing issues, but the second time through I didn't feel that way at all. Either way, I think it's a really amazing show. It was marketed for kids and there are a few childish scenarios and jokes, but it's never patronizing and the anime takes itself seriously.


Dennou Coil is awesome, good taste sushi rollymous. It's been many years since I watched it and you made me want to see it again. I recall having a few moments where I thought to myself "can't they just take off the glasses", but aside from that I thought it was fantastic.
I really don't remember much about it though now that I think on it, so I do think a rewatch is in order

File: 1603863339732.jpg (17.01 KB, 217x356, hHsUGU8.jpg)


Dennou Coil was optimistic in a way I doubt is really possible nowadays with the proliferation of an actual augmented (and distorted) reality in the form of smartphone-assisted social networks.
>I've only met one other person that knows of it
It's just kind of old. Not a lot of stuff from back then still gets discussed much. Might just be me but it feels like we used to talk about anime from the 90s a lot more in the 00s than we talk about anime from the 00s now.

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.

Yeah, the first two episodes sold me on this anime but the stories are all grimdark and/or preachy. I'm especially not liking this formula of Elaina telling a story that either relates (traveler showing images to his wife) or is a depersonalization of the story she's living (this episode and the story about "a certain princess"). On one hand it sounds exactly like a self-important teenager trying to sound deep but on the other hand I'm not seeing the author being clever enough to have done that on purpose. Doubly so because it's cheap and works in the anime's detriment.

The anime would improve by leaps and bounds if during story moments we heard Elaina's thoughts on whatever she's experiencing as if she was writing on a diary or if she actually fully narrated a story with whimsical references like "and who was this witch whose beauty flying over the mountain makes anyone sigh? It was me, of course". Instead we're watching her watching things. She's traveling but we don't see any logic to it. The first town was a given but how about after that? She heard a rumor and went to check it out? Did someone tell her such and such place is great this time of the year? Did she read in Nike's journal about a town and goes to see how things have changed? Does she just pick a location completely at random with not even a proper justification (follow a river until hitting a town)? Does she even have a map or is cataloguing/mapping her course? There's little travel, scarce writing, no cartography to be seen and we don't get to know her opinions or even what she thinks about what's going on. No room for character development or telling a story.

I'm giving this two more episodes on account of the first two being pretty nice, but right now majo no tabitabi is veering into a "shallow pretentious trash" rating.


I want to believe what's happening is Elaina sticking up to the promises she made to her mom but there's better ways of portraying her motivations. I agree that having no narration focusing on Elaina's thoughts and feelings hurts the show.


It's weird because it's not as if they're averse to monologue, but they're using the monologues in precisely the wrong ways. We don't need monologues about her old stories or whatever, we need monologues about how she feels about all the things she sees. It's like as soon as the first episode is over Elaine becomes a static PoV character, but then what's the point of developing her in the first place?

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 tried reading this a while ago but I couldn't deal with the whiplash from it switching between that porno-looking style with fat shaded lips and the cutesy flat and simple style every panel.

Was going to listen to a Current 93 album but due to life's pathways ended up reading Dragon Head instead. Very very thrilling, I like how there's a presence of the supernatural, but it's not really there. The fact that it seems like a SHTF fantasy that during peak-covid panic I could've seen as a foreseeable future also adds an extra. I'm just in the 4th volume but I'd definitely rec this just for the first two alone.

I've already completed them but I really recommend Blaster Knuckle for a good laugh, Hell Baby for some horror and Shinya Shokudo for the most heartwarming story where you wish you could meet the characters.
