Yama no Susume was a very pleasant surprise. Very short at 3 minutes per episode, but it enjoyed a very high production value and it had lots of beautiful nature shots. It might even get a second season!

I absolutely loved Yama no Susume, can't wait for the second season.
Aiura is another great short anime and it's airing this season. Everything about it is really relaxing, I look forward to it every week.

I'm watching Durarara! and I like it even as much as I liked the manga. Simon however is the most racist depiction of a black guy in Japanese media I have ever seen in my 23 years. Stay classy Japan.

Is anyone watching Golgo 13, DD HnK, Yuyushiki and Aiura here?

I'm watching both Yuyushiki and Aiura. Tuesdays are so relaxing.
11 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-18 05:12
The humor in Yuyushiki can be a hit or miss for me, since it often relies on puns or word plays and sometimes jokes go over my head to be honest. But the emphasis the show puts on the affection characters feel for each other and the cute mannerism derived from that makes up for it plenty.

I just started on Katanagatari. I was expecting more action than talking but I really enjoy the banter between the characters.
14 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-19 03:14
Yea, Isin is a really wordy author, and you're in for a long wordy trek with usually only a short fight scene per episode.
Not that I mind, I feel like Katanagatari is one of the few pieces of his where that really works. He weaves it together really well, and the visuals/audio are just wonderful icing on that in anime form.

Hey all, other than in physical form, how do you like to read your manga?
I like phsyical best, but the translations end up being american-ized and not as true to itself. I mostly would just web-search it and read it on whatever site comes up first.

I got a Nexus 7 recently pretty much exclusively for the purpose of using it for reading books/manga, since doing so on a computer screen has never really felt right for me. It totally exceeded my expectations, I actually really enjoy reading manga digitally now that I have a portable means to do it on something that looks and feels like a page and not just a window on a computer screen. I imagine the same would be true of other tablets.

I too like physical the best, and the German translation of Yotsuba! turns out kind of cute (´・ω・｀)

Yotsuba&! is pretty amazing because the quality hasn't dwindled at all, while it's still about the same things since Volume 1. Azuma is very talented.

It's pretty amazing it got a new season. It didn't feel like something that would sell well.
21 Name: Anonymous : 2013-06-30 17:22
The first season sold decently, around 4k if I remember correctly so it probably did a little bit more than breaking even. I also think Junichi Satou enjoyed working on it a lot, it almost felt like a love letter to Aria considering how similar it was in tone and structure. I suppose it became possible with a well-respected director willing to create more and not-so-bad sales. I can only hope he'll work on an Amanchu adaptation in the future.

Started on the second season of Arakawa Under The Bridge earlier today. I love the surreal humor and the awesome cast of the show. Not to mention the art style and animation quality is top notch.>>13
You're probably finished with it by now, but I hope you enjoyed it. Katanagatari is my all time favorite anime, and too many people skip over it because it isn't the typical shonen swordfight action anime they wanted.

I wish a new Yotsubato chapter would come out.
25 Name: Anonymous : 2013-07-06 05:47
I actually just finished it on Thursday and loved it. Like I said, I was expecting more action but I really prefer it the way it was done. The characters developed well and while I can see why some people wouldn't like the ending I thought it was perfectly in spirit of the series. I don't want to say too much more because I don't know if spoiler tags work or even exist here, but that final episode was great.
Now I'm gonna start on Tamayura Hitotose. Hopefully I can catch up to the second season before it's finished airing.

I'm a straight male, so there's not much sexual appeal to it for me. I've never been hot for sports anime. It's also a KyoAni anime, and I tend to be cautious about those.
I guess you can say it hasn't really piqued my interest.

I also wasn't a big fan of sports anime until I saw chihayafuru. Now I'm eager to try more, but I'm afraid it's an exception to the genre.

No, not really. I guess it's cheap to say that it doesn't pander to me but that's how it is. I usually tend to watch KyoAni's shows for the cute girls but those are nonexistent this time. I'm not into swimming either.
While we are talking about sport anime, is anyone excited for the baseball anime airing in fall? Name's Ace or something

Fairly surprised to see a significantly higher amount of "This season sucks" around the internet (read: /a/) than usual. I mean, it isn't fantastic, but it's probably my favorite season of the past three or so. Varied, too.
I've got Blood Lad, Dangan Ronpa, Free, Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi, Monogatari Boogaloo Fever, Servant x Service, Tamayura, TWGOK, Uchouten Kazoku, Watamote, Fate/Kaleid, and Silver Spoon under my belt so far, and there haven't been any massive disappointments (other than the weird pacing issues with DR). I watch a lot of different genres/material that appeals to a wide range of individuals, so I can't really see anyone feeling left out from even that small lot, from the deepest DEEP type to the heaviest moe fan. A dearth of harder action, perhaps?

I just marathon'd Angel Beats (I'm late to the party, I know), and dear god I'm an emotional wreck. I don't know what to think or feel, I think it actually made me depressed. I think this may have been the first time I've ever cried to an anime before, and I was tearing up throughout the entire series. I can't sleep because I keep thinking about it, and I don't have the mental stability at the moment to fap. I'm really just not in the mood to do anything at the moment.
I do have thoughts about how much it sucks to be a hikikomori sometimes, but seeing shit like this makes me want to stay away from all forms of love. It's distressing to be lonely, but I'm guessing it doesn't hold a candle to the crushing effects of a broken heart.

It's getting an official release! Hopefully they put as much effort into it as the translation project/great LP out there. A shame it's for the Vita, though, or else I might be able to say this post is a recommendation for when you get that PSP.
Definitely a good idea to not watch the anime if you haven't experienced the game, though. It isn't bad, and it's fun to see the characters move and all, but it's pretty badly rushed to squash a lengthy game into 12 episodes. Probably not the best way to experience the plot for the first time.

I can't say I've ever followed something for so long before, but it's always a bittersweet feeling when something you love comes to an end. What manga is it? I'm going to go out on a limb and guess it's Hourou Musuko since I recently heard that it was ending soon.

Good guess, and great taste. It's been such a long time, with so many characters I love and relate to. Shimura is a wonderful mangaka, and a great storyteller in general, but I'm finding myself really sad to think that I'm parting with them for good...

Same to you. I never did read the manga but I thought the anime was one of the better shows of 2011. For You is probably one of my all time favorite ending themes. I should really get to reading it soon.

You should definitely get on that. Despite the long runtime, as a monthly manga it ended at around 120 chapters, so it shouldn't take up too much time.

I'm not sure if this constitutes as a shitty recommendation request but I'll ask anyway since it certainly doesn't warrant a new thread.
What is the dumbest superhero anime that takes itself seriously? I'm talking like the kind of superhero anime that you see other anime characters watching (like Magical Girl Kyoko in To Love-RU). I'm just in the mood to watch something hilariously bad.

Does Isaki remember what happened? What exactly WAS it that hapened to him? I feel like he went backwards into a past memory? But he has a smartphone? Maybe everyone in KnI has cell phones and it has just not been shown until now.
But then he gets back to the group with the cat-mouthed-woman, and he thinks he's been gone 20 minutes. But to his friends he just came back instantly!

Romance between a guardian and a ward, and between an adult and a child. The one depicted didn't seem predatory, but any such relationship requires extreme scrutiny, and an ingrained squick reaction is a good mechanism for forcing that.

Non Non Biyori has almost three minutes worth of scenery porn as its intro. Ren-chon is also the adorablest.
It is off to a great start with the first episode.
