I recently re-watched it with a friend, I just love it. Can't wait for the new season!

Did anyone else watch Karaki Jouzu no Takagi-san? It's surprisingly fun to watch given its predictability. Or maybe even because of it.

That was a really cute and sweet show. I don't think a romantic slice of life show like that really needs to be surprising.

I just started Suite Precure, and I'm having a really good time with it so far. It kind of seems to have a bad rap; I assume that's because it came out right after Heartcatch.

Apologies if this isn't the best place to post this, but can anyone give me some anime recommendations? I have not really watched anime in a while and I'm completely in the dark on what good shows are airing this season. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what kind of anime you enjoy, but my favorite current shows are:
•Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Hen
•Comic Girls
•Golden Kamuy
•Wotakoi
•Seizei Ganbare! Mahou Shoujo Kurumi
Darling in the Franxx and the new Captain Tsubasa are pretty good, but your mileage may vary.

Haven't been watching anime seriously since this year began

Ever since I saw this picture, I've been looking around for Komi-san wa Komyushou Desu. It looks like something I would enjoy, but I can't find it for procurement anywhere. No official translations on amazon, can't find any download through mega, torrents, or irc outside of the oneshot. Online reader sites have the rest of the volumes, but I prefer a local zip/rar file. Usually scanlators have websites or blogs where they post download links, but I haven't been able to find anything.

It is so frustrating since this seems so enjoyable.

I figured that would bait someone in to reading it! It's a really heartwarming series, and very funny.

Yeah, it's a pain - Underdog used to be the scanlators but they went defunct, taking down their website. "Komi-scan wa Komyusho desu" are the current TLs but with the death of Batoto they only upload on MangaDex, no site of their own.

If you're looking for rars, this seems to have most of the older chapters: https://archive.org/details/manga_Komi-san_wa_Komyushou_Desu.

Thanks for the archive site. For the rest of the series, I'll use a scraper for mangadex.

Started watching it today. What do I think of it so far?

I've been watching the new season of full metal panic.
things are starting to heat up.

Golden Kamui is very very good!

The animation's a bit cheap and goofy-looking, but everything else about the show is fantastic. I am, however, a little worried about how they're going to wrap it up now that it's nearly over.
Also, Asirpa is cute!

I finished GochiUsa yesterday and I was wondering if there are other animes with towns like that, since GochiUsa's town is based on a real town (Colmar, France); if so, could you guys name them?
See →/888/8.png
353 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-20 13:00
>>352
The town in So Ra No Wo To is Cuenca, Spain.
Kiki's Delivery Service is mostly components of Stockholm & Visby, but there's not much directly based on them.

Most of the English scenes in Kiniro Mosaic are taken directly from various locations in the Cotswolds. The interiors are even from one house: https://www.otakunews.com/Article/2085/on-location-at-fosse-farm-alice-cartalets-house-from-kinmoza

Little Witch Academia is largely an amalgamation of southern England, but Avebury is a fair match for the "location ambience", and there's even a picture of St Michael's Line at one point, pinning Luna Nova Academy as just south of Bristol. →/889/5btq9cq9jq8y.jpg

I can't really think of many that have other timber-framed towns like Colmar that aren't fantasy though - it's a fairly common style for that. This site is great for real life location comparisons, it's a hobby for the owner of the blog http://mikehattsu.blogspot.com/

GochiUsa is a very cute show!

I found out there are two other towns in Alsace (region where Colmar is located) that look like Colmar: Riquewihr (→/890/1a.jpg) and Ribeauvillé (→/891/2a.jpg). Alsace is located in Eastern France and borders Germany and Switzerland, seems like a nice place.

Watching DRR!

About halfway through X2, loving it.

Had watched the original season when it aired but never got around to the second.
358 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-25 05:29
I burnt through the 6 episode OVA for Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu today and boy, was that a roller coaster.
It felt rushed, like if I was skipping entire episodes between scenes. I heard somewhere that the LN it was based off started the LN boom in the mid 2000s, so maybe the source material is better and this was just a bad adaptation. What a shame, too. It started off so strong and absolutely fell apart around midway through.

I hate to be that person, but a lot of anime is racist and sexist. Darling in the Franxx is right-wing propaganda, for example. I'm not making it up. Google it. I'm not doing your research for you though. You can do that on your own.

People of color are sorely lacking from anime. Women are depicted without agency, which is sexist. That's why neckbeards like anime.

Anime needs to change much in the same way the video game industry has changed. We need cultural changes and actual representation. But not tokenization.

I know your knee-jerk reaction might be to reject my claims, because you'd rather pretend that all is well, but you know I'm right.

It's really cute, and the story wraps up nicely within the 5 volumes that were published. Not often you find completed romance manga.

Flying Witch is great, the OP is brilliantly catchy. Apparently the anime followed the manga well, so you can take that up if you want more comf. >>237
The bonus track on the album is nice too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQ0Cd7atiW4

That same author recently finished another very cute series called Madoromi-chan ga Iku. It isn't romance if that's something you're particularly looking for, but it's short and worth a read if you want something lighthearted and fun. Between Madoromi-chan and Ookami Shounen, I can't wait to see what this guy comes out with next.

On the topic of romance manga, I finished one called Kanojo wa Rokurokubi recently. It was really enjoyable, though it apparently got cancelled and has a very sudden ending. I need more cute romance manga like it in my life.

Everyone who isn't exactly like you is a troll. I hate this modern attitude.

You know how social media recommends videos, pages, accounts, etc that are related to your interests? And you know how google search results are custom-tailored to you, based on what google knows about you? I think this has led to people being in echo chambers for too long, so you think anyone who sees the world in a different way is a "troll" or something, which is dumb.

Understand that people are not all the same, and people can have very legitimate reasons for coming to different conclusions than you.

Dismissing people as "trolls" is ignorant and lazy. Instead, you can try to see things from someone else's perspective.

Anime objectifies women. It's not just about the oversexualization, since many feminists are sex-positive now, instead of being anti-sex. But it's sexist and objectifying in the sense that many female anime characters lack agency. I think many weeaboos like asian women and anime because of the stereotypically weak portrayals of women. You don't like women who stand up for themselves. You don't like strong women who don't want traditional gender roles. Weeaboos prefer the timid, weak, obedient, sidekick-style woman who is merely an accessory for a male protagonist. Additionally, anime's lack of diversity is striking, but it's also a reflection of the lack of proper multiculturalism in Japan too. This will have to change over time, since their birth rates are dropping off.

You can either try and understand other people, or you can just continue to be dismissive and call everyone who isn't a carbon copy of you a troll. Your choice. Are you going to continue to be close-minded, or will you listen to what other people have to say?

The entire subgenre of "cute girls doing cute things" is so emblematic of this problem.

And not only that, they tend to have cheap and uninspired animation (even by anime standards).

Watching Azumanga Daioh after 10 years. The CD-R quality leaves something to be desired, but hey; a spectacular classic.

The new season of Yama no Susume is off to a good start. We've been spoilt for outdoors series the past couple of seasons with Yuru Camp and Sora Yori, but YnS falls really nicely between the two - comfy, but still good character development.

I'm waiting for the Asenshi subs for it, should I just watch what's already out?
370 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-12 21:07
For those of you who keep up with seasonal anime, what have you picked up this season? What are you excited to watch?

Out of everything I've tried watching so far, I'm most excited for Planet With. It's an original work by Satoshi Mizukami, who did Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, Sengoku Youko and Spirit Circle. Apparently he's been working on the show's concept for four years now, and there's over a thousand pages of manga storyboards for it. It's a bit odd to see Mizukami's stuff animated, but I'm very excited for more of it.

So far, I'm really enjoying Yama no Susume 3. Hanebado and Asobi Asobase are pretty good too, and I'm going to keep watching Shinya Tensai Bakabon and see if it gets better.
I'm also looking forward to Happy Sugar Life and Hi Score Girl, as I enjoy both manga.

Sunohara-sou's a pretty nice surprise. I was expecting a dumb ecchi show, but it's rather sweet.

I've picked up Yama no Susume and Asobi Asobase. Both are great anime, especially Asobi Asobase, since it caught me off guard.
>>371
Is Hanebado worth giving a try?
374 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-23 10:05
Asobi Asobase is hilarious. I feel like I laugh a little harder every episode. I love the faces.

>>373
Hanebado's a pretty standard sports anime (albeit with fairly high production values). If you enjoy sports anime, it should be right up your alley.

You have to be patient with Kouko, though. I promise you guys her personality gets better.

I watched Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou today and realized that's the "YKK" you guys talk about. I didn't come from the "YKK-ARIA" imageboard so I had no clue what "YKK" stand for.
