I have resumed watching it recently as well; it's a nice show to watch every night before going to bed. I'm at episode 60 and I like how they have been able to provide such consistent quality.

I want to say all of the Aria/Aqua manga. But I don't see how someone could *only read just one* and then put it down.

If we're talking Aria, the anime is very easy to fall asleep to. Reading takes a bit more effort

Protip from an old anime watcher: any anime is a winter anime if you watch it during winter.

But if you see an slice of life anime with about skiing and/snowboarding, then it's double winter.

Is anyone watching Samurai Flamenco? This show is really damn good! ww
It's a pity that the animation is so poor at times though, I've heared that the budget is pretty low and the Japanese are not really interrested in it either. Oh well.

I'm really liking Gingitsune this season; the character interactions are very fun to watch.
One or two of the episodes were angsty as heck but they didn't dwell on it and I'm glad, since it detracts from the atmosphere.

So I just caught up on Kabu No Isaki. From chapter 38 to 47.

Yeah, I'm in disbelief myself. I thought the tone was too inconsistent with the rest of the series and it felt awkward. The Mt Fuji thing was nicely inserted into an already otherworldly experience, and it remained mystical so it could be just a 'wonder of this world'. But the latest chapters, with only one remaining, are a bit too much. Plus KnI was first released as a one-shot so this could very well be an 'arsepull' Ashinano thought of later on...
121 Name: Anonymous : 2013-12-07 04:18
I reacted like you have, but in a positive light. I liked it. Even if I have no idea what's currently up. Did Ashinano say the next one will be the last for sure?

I reverse image searched it and found a few other screenshots from the scene. Japanese textboards and some Portuguese sites claim it's Golden Time. I don't think they're particularly important characters in the show, though.

So, I very recently watched the latest Magica Madoka Movie.
What the FUCK just happened? Why were Mami and Sayaka and QB doing an experiment on Homura, trapping her in her own body? What the fuck even WAS any of that? Don't get me wrong, I really liked the movie, I jst have no idea what just happened.

I said it because of the last episode and my association with it. I don't know, i'm a big weeb so i don't really like LotR.
The show was very enjoyable for me, it didn't take itself seriously, most people would probably say it was shit.
I liked it a lot though.

I thought I would post it here, as I am not sure a general thread for visual novels would be interesting.
The Subarashiki Hibi translator released recently an unofficial 80% translation patch for it. It covers almost everything up to the middle of Jabberwocky 1. I'm in the middle of Invention right now, it's pretty spooky and great.https://mega.co.nz/#!a9RS0IRC!FIzUTvW1mi-stQEcapkrku9FGJ6pjgUMYMtlO708CdM

Is Kill La Kill really that good? It just seems like another fanservice anime but now that it's done it seems like an easy Torrent.
139 Name: Anonymous : 2014-03-31 00:27
I had a lot of fun watching it, for what it's worth. The animation can get kind of iffy at times, you can definitely feel that it's not a high budget show, but it's very enjoyable. A lot of the jokes draw from older shows like Gunbuster, Mazinger and Getter Robo, etc. but even aside from the parodies it was pretty fun to watch. The fanservice gets a lot more subtle, or there's less of it, in the second half than in the first. I'd say it was probably one of the better shows of the season. If you like action-comedy shows give it a shot.
140 Name: Anonymous : 2014-03-31 05:25
I mean, there's fanservice, yeah, but it's not "pause every ten seconds to press the camera in the crotch of every female onscreen" or anything, it never gets in the way awkwardly. They just kind of soak everything in sex as part of what it is, I guess?
That aside, it's basically TTGL taken even more over the top. If you enjoyed that, you'll enjoy this.

I got curious about this one so I looked it up in the vn database and it picked my interest. Added to my wishlist. I guess I'll give it a try when the translation is 100%, I'm pretty busy currently.
I personally would like to see a general visual novel thread since I want to get more into them, but not sure if it would be interesting (or active) tho. Oh, and thanks for the link.

JJBA and Mushishi particularly for me. A nice SOL to round things off and the season looks to be pretty good.

Art style, obligatory fanservice complete with nosebleeds, the Sidonia's Architecture is pretty lame compared to Blame!'s Megastructure or the... thing from Biomega.
Don't get me wrong, it's still really cool. I just like Blame!/Biomega and his shorts a lot more.

Thank you, these are now in my wallpaper cycle! Aria is such a visually stunning anime. I've had it for a while but decided to finally begin watching it because of this thread. It's very soothing.
150 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-12 06:57
Wait, Knights of Sidonia is actually taking place in the Biomega universe?? I just got to a chapter in the manga where Toha heavy industries is mentioned and many characters are wearing clothes with the Toha HI logo on it like it's normal! How significant is this? How does it work? In Biomega Earth has destroyed by the DRF using the seeds to recreate it, yet in Knights of Sidonia it get's split in half by the Gahna. It's too different! How is Toha HI here?

I'm definitely enjoying Ping Pong. Yuasa's colours and animation make the show fucking delicious. Where most anime limit angle animation, Yuasa's deformed/twisted faces and bodies make it possible to animate bodies and heads in a dynamic and three-dimensional way because the animators don't need to worry about looking realistic. Not needing to look realistic also means he was able to pick atypical but really really satisfying colours for the backgrounds (which also have really good textures while none (or little) of that common "unmoving plead" crap). The unrealistic art style almost makes me want to forgive the somewhat over-the-top scenes.>>141
I thought about making one, but I lack the confidence that it would gain enough interest from the userbase... And I, myself, wouldn't be able to contribute to it meaningfully, considering I've read very few VNs.>>149
It gets better! I prefer the manga, though. Much better art. but it doesn't have the magical OST.
Also I'm being a faggot about animation but I can't get past Sidonia's CGI. My only experience with the author is BLAME!, which I consider to be cyberpunk porn, and I'm entering Sidonia biased with similar expectations, so the CGI just disappoints me, so much.

Nichijou is honestly the best anime you can watch if you are ever having a bad day. Its wacky and classic humor....its unique, beautiful, and cute art style is guaranteed to make that dark rain cloud over your head drift away.

Wow, this is amazing news! Tamayura holds a special place in my heart since it was what introduced and warmed me to iyashikei and Aria. And back when the original OVAs were released I never thought we would see this much Tamayura content. It is really a project of passion for Junichi Sato.

I recently picked up Flip Flappers after originally passing on it at the beginning of the season. It's the most fun I've had watching anime in a while. The characters are great, it's mysterious about what exactly is going on without being annoying about it, and I love the way the dreamworld (or whatever) gimmick allows it to create a variety of situations. I hope the ending doesn't screw this one up, because it's a gem.

I saw Kimi no Na wa in the cinema last weekend and really enjoyed it. I'd be hard pressed to say why that is, though; at least partly I think it captures the way that dreams fade in your thoughts really well. It was also good to see a beautiful Shinkai film that wasn't as soul-crushing as his usual ones!

Manga about japanese food and japanese people. It has a simplistic, distinctive artstyle that is more crude than artistic.
It's interesting to learn a bit more about japanese daily cuisine. It also has interesting stories about the people eating the food. Doesn't really have a plot, but some characters recur.

At the same time it feels like a mistake, I feel existential about it again, like I want to escape real life, escapism isn't good for me.
