Hello nerds. Welcome to /a/, 99chan's very own dank, sweaty den filled with crusty body pillows and broken dreams.

This is your board for all discussion pertaining to Japanese animation. Whether you're a lifelong otaku or you just discovered Miyazaki, all are welcome here. I hope this can be an active and enjoyable board for fans - casual, hardcore, and everything in between - to talk about their favourite animated film and TV from Glorious Nippon.

If you're looking for recommendations, looking to discuss the new season of your favorite show, or looking to share your thoughts on the philosophical symbolism Anno was expressing with those gratuitous shots of Asuka's panties, this is the place for you. I encourage you to post your thoughts, jokes, opinions, questions, analyses, and anything else. Please keep in mind that this board is safe for work.

Here is a complicated Japanese emoticon ٩(●˙▿˙●)۶…⋆ฺ

Stream 3 runs anime mostly from the 1980s and 1990s from 7:00 AM to about 4:00 PM on weekdays and is set to a schedule.

Stream 1 has live action B-movies from the VHS era and other things of that sort in the evenings.


If you tune in, thank you very much.

So with recent happenins and TPP, there's been talks at certain places of making an archive of our favorite Japan shit. Would our dank comrades be up for the challenge?

Essentially, it would be up to you: save everything weeb-related you can find, keep it safe, and then get it ready for preservation. At the certain place, we've managed to organize somewhat, but we need all the help we can get.

Get all the anime, all the manga, all the eroge, everything. And keep it secret. Keep it safe. Until the time is right.

So I've been out of the scene for awhile, and I'm not quite up to date on new stuff. The last Animes I've watched fully are Baccano and Durarara. They were pretty good. I also watched bits of HS of the Dead, but I got bored.

For reference, some of my favorites are FLCL, Planetes, GiTS, Kino's Journey, Euraka 7, & Cowboy Bebop.

So any recommendations on stuff that I'd like in the past 2-3 years? Or popular stuff that's good too?

Yuri Kuma Arashi was probably the best in my opinion starting within the last year, and has probably sat on the empty throne of "best yuri drama ever" based on the fact that there aren't many yuri dramas in anime. If you're familiar with or enjoy Revolutionary Girl Utena and/or Mawaru Penguindrum, it's made by the same person. It's great from beginning to end, granted you're not one of those people who just can't get into Ikuhara's stuff. Even compared to Penguindrum it's better and has a better ending. It's fantastical and trippy and weird and sexy. Really sexy. Like, "you don't even have to make porn of it" sexy.

Aldnoah Zero works as a rather interesting science fiction and mecha anime, and is made by Gen Urobuchi, creator of Madoka. However, it sorta employs a lot of contrived bullshit. What's good about it is so good that you might be able to overlook its faults, including a really rushed ending.

Barakamon is probably the best slice-of-life anime to come out recently. Each episode is pretty interesting and doesn't get into the boring staleness some others get into. Also good to go if you're a lolicon, but it's not really a lolicon anime.

The Rolling Girls is an interesting blend of alternate world building, moe aesthetic, and episodic storytelling. It's soundtrack is awful but that's all I can really hate about it.

Kantai Collection is of course based on the strangely wildly popular browser game where girls are WWII-era ships. It's a little bit of a strange one if you're not already familiar with the game (which is most gaijin) but it can be an entertaining aside.

Getting into anime they I didn't love but others might include Denkigai no Honyasan, Amagi Brilliant Park, Sora no Method, and Koufuku Graffiti.

Denkigai is a moe SoL but it follows members who work at a book shop in Akiba, I watched about half but then it literally started recycling storylines so I dropped it. Not that bad though.

I also watch about half of Amagi Brilliant Park, and it has an interesting enough setup, but it just didn't hold my attention. It also had that harem stink which turned me off.

Yeah, I listen to a lot of this sometimes. Mostly I listen to music I downloaded a few years ago ("Bastard Pop Terrorists") from a thread on 4chan/t/, but I also have about 200 IOSYS tracks. There's another thread up on j-core on that board (look for it if you're interested).

As for the music you posted, it doesn't strike me as particularly interesting or distinct from other stuff I've heard. It's simple and doesn't hold any touches that make me feel like there was effort invested in it. The cover images are nice though.

I just started this after having it on my list for quite a while. I like it so far. I like the combination of workplace comedy with hard sci-fi. It's a great concept and well executed in terms of production values, and the English dub is good.

I'm with >>646 in that I hope the character development is done right because, as solid as this series is conceptually and in execution, I can see it wearing really thin and over-staying its welcome if the characters don't go anywhere. As it stands right now, it's been fairly static in that regard, but there is a lot of potential here for a good balance between satisfying hard sci-fi, workplace comedy/drama, and exploring the ambiguous political situation in which they are living.

So far, it has touched on some interesting themes, but only touched. If I'm not happy with how certain issues are explored, I can see this getting old long before 26 episodes are up.

I just recently rewatched this and have one gigantic complaint.

That awful sequence of events in season 2 where Tanabe goes against the wishes of the dead astronaut floating and space and bitches and complains his body shouldn't be left alone to wander space.

Who is this cunt to decide a dead man's wishes, especially based on her personal beliefs? She is the worst part of this show. If it only followed Hachimaki I think it would be one of the best space anime ever.
>> No. 751
File 14106297903.jpg - (60.18KB , 444x254 , tanabe-and-hachimaki.jpg )
Excellent point. Fucking Tanabe, let the man die how he wants to die, it's his life, his death, and his decision.

Sorry for taking months to get back to you. It's a good series. The dialogue is almost entirely yelling, which gets really really tiresome, but that's anime I guess :/ It's a great exploration of a corporatized space exploration system. The way it looks at inequality is surprisingly nuanced. Most space shows have this united humanity going out into the galaxy, as if the only possibility is that going into space will unite us all and solve all our problems. But Planetes goes for a different future, where all of our earth-bound inequities just go with us out into space.

So overall: good character drama, especially the latter half of Hachimaki's arc. Nuanced portrayal of a possible structure of for-profit space exploration. Some genuinely funny and genuinely moving moments. Too much over-the-top dialogue and voice delivery. Fucking Tanabe.

Question: how come a cartoon about giant robots blowing each other up has a themesong with lyrics about letting love guide the way, and looking to the stars and shit?

Seriously, it seems like any time I watch an anime (which is not often) and the opening theme is subtitled, the lyrics are always things like "I'M GONNA LET MY LOVE LEAD THE WAY, LOOK TO THE STARS, I'M FREE TO LET THE STARS OF MY LOVE LEAD THE WAY TO MY HEART" or something equally ridiculous. And while a Japanese woman is passionately singing these lyrics, the images that I am looking at are a bunch of dudes with weird haircuts and some girl in a bikini flying robot fighter jet machine gun tanks.
