Recent anime thread! 名無し 11/13/2023 (Mon) 13:20:21 No. 631 [Reply]
what are some anime in recent memory you've really liked? (by "in recent memory", i mean since the beginning of the 2020s.)

>>658 I wouldn't say it's only 4chan. It has been a big hit elsewhere too, it's getting lots of fanart on Pixiv for example. The manga is relatively successful; that's how I got into it. The threads for the manga were already relatively popular on 4chan, although I don't go a lot in /a/ so I can't say for sure. I honestly expected it to be successful, it's good. The pacing is nice, the anime improves the fights and follows to the letter what was already a good manga.
>>659 My friend has been recommending this a lot to me recently, I might actually watch it
>>659 Somehow got #1 on MAL too..
>>718 And that's not even thanks to users purposeley boosting the number through multiple accounts like we've had in the past with (IIRC) AOT season 3. People just legitmatley love this and the only real complaints I've seen from people disliking it are either them not understanding the character and the message of the series and as a result finding her to be bland, while some are just hating on it because it's popular. I have a bad habbit of hyperfixating on 2000's anime and ignoring the new stuff but even I can say it's one of the best thats come out in years and will surely be looked back on as a classic if the rest of the series stays as consistently good as it has been so far.
>>632 is he pissing himself as consistently as in the manga?

Have you watched Ergo Proxy? What do you think?
I didn't understand it all. should have got more action and less talk. meh/10

>>737 one of my old favorites.. I love pino. \ >>739 there was pretty constant action. maybe you would like psychopass. completely different anime. but more action and faster pace, story isn't a mess. I forget what ergo was going for and what the creator said about it. I think it was an eva situation where there wasn't really a point to any of it and the symbolism was just cool. at the same time I'm not sure about that because ergo's symbolism I remember making sense to me when you look up all the names of the deities being referenced. I'd put it somewhere between a 7-8/10. I also recall that the ending got botched or somewhere in between was. I could be remembering a different anime from back then though.

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya 名無し 12/04/2023 (Mon) 09:09:13 No. 675 [Reply]
Haven't gotten around to seeing this yet. The girls are cute though Should I watch it?

>>690 >how did they get away with it in 2005? If you're talking about the anime specifically, it released in 2006 Also, sexual stuff like this have been around long before this series
>>685 I liked it when they were in bunny outfits
>>685 I can't feel bad for Mikuru. She's so introverted it hurts. Just speak up and stop whining
>>676 Disappearance Of Haruhi Suzumiya is one of the best movies I have watched. Also, Yuki is love.

>>711 oh ok
>>27 Started watching Fist of the North Star because I've never seen it before and it's a classic so I figured I should.
>>27 i read the light novel for Welcome to the NHK on a whim and really enjoyed it. i always avoided it for the longest, because the only thing i ever heard about it was that it was..."a deconstruction/critique of otaku culture with an unlikable protagonist", and i've always hated discussion like that. it will never not bother me how japanese media consistently attracts people who don't like it here in the states. so i always try to avoid anime like that. but NHK i ended up really resonating with. i think some people do the story a disservice when they only discuss the one aspect of the story. i really resonated with the characters, Yamazaki especially. that said, i feel like the ending was a bit contrived. it could just be me projecting my own bitterness onto the story, but i feel like everyone suddenly getting a happy ending was kind of unrealistic. i'm downloading the anime right now, i've only ever seen people recommend the anime and not the book, i know there are a couple of differences between the two. the download is taking forever
I finished watching all the episodes of DIY!! (the anime) it was okay but I wish we had more things builed
>>731 I've read the manga and the LN + the remake (named rebuild of NHK) that is only 33 pages I think; and watched the anime. there all different on some points and sometimes they're the same on some points. I can't say wihch one I liked the most and which one I hated the most because they're all different in their own. so I liled them all . you should also go for all the NHK piece of wroks, you'll like it for sure

How can I learn Japanese 名無し 12/07/2023 (Thu) 14:11:27 No. 683 [Reply]
my fellow man's of culture in /jp/... HOW TO LEARN JAPANESE? I think some here already can read and understand some basic level of japanese. I don't want to do grammar books because most of them are... A bit of waste of time? I dunno. And I am veeeryy lazy to do anki cards. I was learning the kanji radicals but I stopped by one day and I lost my streak currently I only know Hiragana. I really wanted to learn because there is a lot's of japanese media that simply isn't translated, and I can't enjoy because: >oopsie your nihongo level is N minus 6, owari da Anyway, how do you guys learn? Don't recommend me Duolingo. I HATE this partyvanrd.
>>683 i can only read/type hiragana and katakana but one of my friends started taking learning japanese seriously and he sent me this guide https://www.tofugu.com/learn-japanese/ you do have to learn the fundamentals, like grammar, or else you're just going to be screwed, and grammar books are just an easy way for most people to learn that, though i'm sure you can find other options for learning that. > I was learning the kanji radicals but I stopped by one day and I lost my streak don't let stuff like this get to you. it's fine to take breaks. eventually you're going to just going to hit a point where you slow down when learning a new language because the honeymoon phase wears off and it gets repetitive. just keep learning new things at your own pace, and whatever you do, for the love of god do not stop practicing for too long, you will lose whatever knowledge you've acquired if you do that (this is how most americans take 1-4 years of spanish in high school and then forget all of it in their adult years, they don't use it at all after they get out of school).
>>683 >step 1 memorize the kana brute force memorize the kana this should only take a day or two a week max https://djtguide.neocities.org/kana/ progressively add another kana column until you have no trouble recognizing all the kana if you still have trouble write down each kana 50 times >step 2 learn some grammar grammar has 3 parts: Sentence Structure https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T5PD1lORiwk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyVZlaEqU24 Particles https://imabi.org/table-of-contents-%e7%9b%ae%e6%ac%a1/ https://matrix.org/_matrix/media/r0/download/matrix.org/GqYvdEhgKNOcBDSZnDDGsWGc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwcTI9qvO-U&list=PLg9uYxuZf8x-FpkArMEoVVfw10TDT9I1h Verb Agglutinations https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIPhvGxp43c

what are your favorite anime intros? I really like the High School DxD season 1 intro and the Ouran High School Host Club intro. Maybe it's because they both have cool lead guitar intros idk.

>>131 You have good taste anon
>>56 there are a lot of anime openings i really like, but code geass's second opening is the one i've had on my mind the most recently not only do i love the song, but the visuals complement it really well and allude to the conflict in the show https://youtu.be/ADPYQSptTLA?feature=shared
>>56 There's only 2 anime intros I like and wont skip. Girls' Last Tour and Cowboy Bebop. >High School Host Club Good stuff
>>708 ...out of all the anime openings out there, there are only two that you like? skipping any one anime intro should already be grounds for the death penalty, let alone all but two of them

Did Japan have flat screens first? When were they introduced? Do they have better technology than most places in general?
i think they've existed before but Japan had them much earlier. not too sure
>>104 They had HD displays in the late 90s, but I don't know if they were flat screens. https://archive.is/7potc
things happened quickly and simultaneously everywhere, China stole all the technology immediately too
>>670 >China stole all the technology immediately too LOL

WHO IS CUTER? Yotsuba or Chiyo-chan?

>>621 Where did Chiyo-chan get the rocket launcher and how is she carrying it?
>>653 >Where did Chiyo-chan get the rocket launcher and how is she carrying it? You didn't know that Chiyo-chan is a Wehrmacht veteran? She probably got the Panzerschreck from when she served in the Battle of Seelow Heights
>>654 anime girl wehrmacht shit is sumanead meme
>>604 I enjoyed reading Yotsuba&, it helped me learn more Japanese and it's fun to read. More fun than Azumanga to me. But it's easier to find something cute when it's in an anime like Azumanga (since it's animated with voices instead of just the art and writing), so I usually find Chiyo-chan to be cuter. I love her voice!
