Nah, you're just being a tyrannical fascist who wants to push your (very inferior) culture on others.

Watching Flying Witch right now. Another weapons-grade comfy anime!
363 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-03 20:12
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

Please don't respond to the troll.

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).
367 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-05 12:11
Watching Azumanga Daioh after 10 years. The CD-R quality leaves something to be desired, but hey; a spectacular classic.
368 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-09 09:53
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.
369 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-10 20:01
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.
372 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-18 01:23
Sunohara-sou's a pretty nice surprise. I was expecting a dumb ecchi show, but it's rather sweet.
373 Name: Anonymous : 2018-07-23 08:58
I've picked up Yama no Susume and Asobi Asobase. Both are great anime, especially Asobi Asobase, since it caught me off guard.
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.

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.

Just finished Golden Time, had a great time watching it. I recommend to everyone that likes romance.
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.

Picked up Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight. It's pretty confusing at the beginning, but everything makes sense after watching the 3rd or 4th episode. I'm really enjoying it so far. Anyone else watching it?
387 Name: Anonymous : 2018-08-27 21:40
Finished reading +tic Neesan yesterday, halfway through Tomo-chan wa Onnanoko. Both are great, highly recommend.
388 Name: Anonymous : 2018-09-12 18:26
I'm watching Revue Starlight. It's probably my favorite show of the season so far. It has tons of Penguindrum/Utena vibes and I'm surprised it doesn't seem to be very popular this season. Maybe it's the idol vibes that scare people off.
389 Name: Anonymous : 2018-09-12 20:04
I think I'm going to give it a try, but probably not for a while; I'm watching a lot right now.
390 Name: Anonymous : 2018-09-27 22:04
Watched Chio-chan. It was good and it made me laugh several times, but I don't think it needed that amount of tits and panties. Aside from the fanservice, it was gold.
391 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-01 12:01
I just finished reading Peach Girl. The story was pretty melodramatic, but I really liked the characters and the art.
392 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-07 21:18
The new season has started. What are you all watching this time around?
393 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-07 22:07
I just watched the first episode of Gridman, which is definitely promising... not sure about the others, I'll probably wait and see what people recommend.
394 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-09 23:29
So far this season (based on one or two episodes), I'm enjoying Anima Yell (solid CGDCT), Akanesasu Shoujo, Golden Kamui 2 (loved the first despite the crappy animation), Uchi No Maid Ga Uzasugiru, and Yagate Kimi Ni Naru.
Himote House (Weird, crappy CG CGDCT from Ishidate) and Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san are both better than I was expecting. Ulysses kind of disappointed me.
395 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-10 18:41
Irozuku Sekai no Ashita Kara seems promising. I'm looking forward to Hinomaru Zumou, too.
396 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-11 10:32
Irozuku sounds pretty interesting; I wonder how I missed that when I made my list for Fall?

I initially passed over Starlight because I assumed it was an idol show. When I did watch it, I enjoyed it, but, I'm not sure what (if anything) it was supposed to mean. It did remind me of Utena, as you said, but it felt more like an homage than something that can stand by itself. It also reminded me a bit of Princess Tutu, probably because of the focus on singing and dancing.
On the whole, I think it's a fun show but fairly forgettable.
397 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-15 21:35
The surprise of the season for me has been Seishun Buta Yarou wa long LN title. It strongly reminds me of the Monogatari series in a really good way.

I'm not sure how to feel about Irozuku. It's a really pretty looking show but feels a little by the numbers. Even the premise reads like "normal high school boy meets mysterious transfer student girl" but backwards. The director also did Nagi no Asukara though and I really enjoyed that, so I'll stick with it for now.
398 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-16 03:06
I'm not sure how to feel about Irozuku.
Yeah, so far it's not grabbing me. It's not bad, but it seems pretty meh.
399 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-16 12:02
I just started Gridman; it's really fun. It reminds me of watching Power Ramgers as a kid.
400 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-20 09:58
I'm enjoying Yagate Kimi ni Naru, but I think AnoKiss would have been the better popular yuri manga to adapt into anime. Because it has a large cast (each with their own stories), you could animate as much, or as little, as you like and have a show that feels complete.

This autumn I re-watch my favorite anime all day long but also had a pleasure to watch Sangatsu no Lion for the first time since all blu-rays came out. Absolutely loved it and since the only rating for the anime I watch is the amount of emotions it gives to me, it became on of my favorites too.
Coming back to a re-watch topic, Mawaru Penguindrum is next despite seeing it many times before. Starting today. What did you re-watch recently, guys? Did you watch the anime that you wanted to start over right away after finishing it? Sorry for the mediocre English.
402 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-27 11:13
I'm about halfway thru a rewatch of Flip Flappers. I really liked it when it first aired, but I remember being kind of turned off by the last few episodes. I would love for this rewatch to change my mind.
Sangatsu no Lion is a damn good show.
403 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-27 11:31
I somehow missed Flip Flappers and now that you've mentioned it I will watch it. And to reply to my own question about starting right away I want to mention all four seasons of Hidamari Sketch because can easily watch in an infinite loop, just to start the day with one episode and to finish it with a couple.
Also didn't expect such quick reply, very glad to know that someone is here nowadays.
404 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-27 20:46

I usually check the Letterbox a couple times a day.

Hidamari Sketch looks like a nice show; I'll watch it one of these days.
405 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-28 14:13
I've been watching alien 9. It's really wierd, not good per say but still I would recomend watching it since it's only 4 episodes and worth the experience just on the strength of the uniqueness and artstyle. It ends on a cliffhanger since it stops half way through the second vollume of the manga, so if you like it read the manga which is also good.
hidamari sketch is really great, although imo the second and third seasons are better than the first.
406 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-29 03:12
I'm almost done with shojo shuumatsu
Im gonna binge the last four episodes tomorrow
Im not sure what to watch after. I dont like ridiculous shonen stuff and im not in the mood for fluff or comedy. I was thinking of kumo no mukou since I have it, or angels egg.
any recommendations?
407 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-29 15:51
I don't re-watch anime anymore because my backlog is so huge. I don't watch many anime so it keeps getting bigger.
But if I decide to do it, probably Lucky Star first because it's been a while and I miss Konata (=ω=.)
408 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-29 20:14
Maybe Haibane Renmei will fit right into your mood. Watch it if you didn't yet.
409 Name: Anonymous : 2018-10-31 03:29
That looks good
Thank you anon

I'm loving Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru. Every episode puts a smile on my face without me even realizing it.
I don't know what makes it so thrilling, but I highly recommend it.
