Why aren't there more series with immortal lolis like Kono Shima?
Try to guess how many times the MC's classmate has been raped since she was thrown in jail.
Will older sister bird win the salaryman?
What a pleasant show.
Ending was perfect, but bittersweet even if it was the only way.
>oh my god, oh my god, oh my god
Why does every show this season have nothing but cancer subs?
there are countless times where they say someones name in anime but the subs don't have the name so i just accept that whatever the subs say are close enough to send through a clear message.
What's the deal with some anime and being randomly popular in some countries?
Apparently Hello Sandybell took off in france:
Frenchfag here, never heard of it, and I had my fair share of classic animu as a kid.
But I can understand how this became a classic among those who watched it. Back in the day, France only had 6 TV channels, including a paying one. Cable was (and is still) almost non-existent. Starting in the late 70s and through the mid-90s, children shows were flooded with anime (one of the earliest example was Grendizer IIRC). This stuff was so popular, the major children show, the Club Dorothee, which mixed anime, sitcoms and sketches, had up to 30hr of airtime a week, with 8hr of live show on wednesday (traditional day-off at elementary school back then). And that was just for the first channel.
Major stuff like DBZ and Hokuto no Ken (yeah, it was the perfect morning in the producer's mind) was mixed with minor and older stuff, like Kimengumi, Uruei Yatsura or Sally.
So it's no surprise stuff that might appears obscure in the US was popular overseas, since the kids were brainwashed with it. Most of the older anime fans will cite Captain Harlock, Space Cobra, Versailles no Bara, Saint Seya or Grendizer as major influences (heck, I've event met my 45 yo teacher at a screening of the last Harlock movie).
Here's a list of anime aired in the Club Dorothee (in French with French titles, but whatever): https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Club_Doroth%C3%A9e#Dessins_anim.C3.A9s
And it was just one channel.
Back then there was stuff like this who aired in the morning along with saint seiya, hokuto no ken and dbz
But some governement bitch found it too brutal and anime almost became non existant
Nowaday there is only mainstream stuff like dbz kai, naruto, Op and sometime there is seasonal anime
Is this supposed to be a comedy? Grown men taking pictures of a topless middle schooler is not funny.
Left or right?
The ultimate battle.
And we all know boobs master race wins every time.
we don't need your shit taste here lelouch
ITT: Post characters that could beat you up in a fight.
Are there any worse studios when it comes to adaptations? You better hope your favorite manga or novel won't get touched by these guys.
A-1 pictures has no permanent staff and studios in general matter far less than the staff working on the show. Even a small studio can put out great work with good staff and a well-handled budget.
What is /a/'s opinion in Asuka?
Is she retarded or just a bit clumsy?
I thought the anime was comfy and liked it. I know it erred on the generic side but I liked really liked the way Asuka was the MC and not the self-insert and I thought all the girls had a fair amount of depth too them.
Are shows like these the ultimate wish fulfillment?
>grown man taking care of a loli that isn't his with no bitchy wife around in some comfy town
Why does Japan not give a shit about spoilers at all?
Every time I watch a show and forget to skip the next episode preview, it always spoils something huge about the next episode.
Here is the fucking preview for episode 23 of Evangelion:
>Eva Unit 00 and its pilot are possessed and violated by an Angel. But even as her mind and body are being eaten away, she never loses sight of herself. However, Rei chooses death of her own will in order to protect Shinji from the Angel. She disappears along with New Tokyo-3, turning into light and heat. Leaving behind only memories in people's souls. Next time: "Tears"
That's not a preview that's a god damned synopsis what the fuck
>Why does Japan not give a shit about spoilers at all?
Culture. This is also why Japanese film trailers often tell you the entire plot. This is most obvious with Western films, where you can compare the Western trailer with Japanese ones.
Japan as a culture doesn't care much about WHAT happens, they care more about HOW it happens. Obviously sometimes a story teller wants to keep consumers surprised, but that is a minority.
Escaflowne, while falling short in a lot of things, actually handled episode previews really well. It often tricked you into thinking the next episode was going to be one thing like someone dying, then you find out it was something totally different.
It seems Hata finally finds his conscience after spending all those years for nothing
Did she lose the MC status in Active Raid S2? I don't really want to watch this shit if she's not a prominent character anymore.
Unfortunately that's the case but at least the times she shows up are great.
