I'll start with the main offender.
Hit or miss with it's episodic structure, but there were some damn good narratives in there.
The blind kid, the guy trapped on the mountain, the sake brewer, the snow at the bottom of the lake, and the guy stuck in a loop all stick out in my mind.

What is this face trying to convey?
Anon, you're waifu is pregnant with your kid, congratulations.
There's a little problem though.
You must give him/her a weeb/Japanese name or else, you will never get to see them and you're waifu and kid will forever hate you.
What do you name your first-born kid?
I go with
Iritsu, if somebody asks, I'll just say it's a play with the word Iris.
Is this accurate?
>if Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid is an immigrant story (and even a refugee tale at that!), the isekai tale is instead most commonly the story of the colonist or imperialist.
>Consider how often the hapless lads and lasses who fall into other worlds are then discovered to be the absolutely necessary saviors of those worlds. The great white savior! Except, you know, Japanese.
>These stories represent vestiges of ultra-nationalism and the imperialist ideology that lead Japan to trample it’s way throughout East Asia. Some shows are kind enough to make this a very easy assertion – hello GATE! – but even ponderous and thoughtful efforts like Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash manifest elements of this. Why do they all keep venturing into the mine to kill goblins and kobolds when the ones in the mine don’t themselves venture outside anyway?
>A lot of these shows also conform to the idea of the colony as a place where one can go and not have to play by societal rules. Those Who Hunt Elves seems nearly the perfect example of this, as it concerns a group of people who are unceremoniously dumped into a fantasy world and then spend the entire runtime tearing the clothing off of bewildered elves who can’t really do much since the protagonists happen to own a tank.
>Maze~The Megaburst Space~ covers some similar territory in that the “lecherous” male-Maze is shown as being able to get away with groping women and otherwise sexually harassing them in the parallel world whereas he was shunned as a misfit delinquent in modern Japanese society.
>Usually, though, this transgressive behavior is made up of killing, slaughtering, and more killing – see everything from Magic Knight Rayearth* to Garzey’s Wing (!!) to Tenchi Muyo: War on Geminar, to Twelve Kingdoms, etc., etc., etc.
Who might you be referring to?
When will the retarded gooks finally give up on having this meme in every anime?
Why is it so prevalent? Is there something about Japanese culture that I'm not understanding here?
Enlighten me /a/
Unlike media like television or big western films, anime is still very approachable for small indie companies
this means they can afford to cater to niche interests, such as homosexuality, as they have much lower overheads
anime is for kids
kids these days (globally) are really, really gay
Is the new series worth watching?
can we just agree that raphi is the best, most pure girl
What was her problem?
How rich are anime characters?
ITT: Anime/Manga where literally nothing happens.
I know this is bait because a lot of things happen but nothing is also good too.
She's looking at you, anon.
