Easily the best scene in the whole show. Based Aimer.
In terms of a scene existing unto itself, regardless of the rest of the anime: the elevator scene in Gungrave.
That awkward silence.
That barrel through the glasses.
Not even close. Either the Befriendening of Feito-chan, or https://jii.moe/4kEY0PFXx.webm
Hard not to be when you're a 11/10
Good contender. This is the GOAT though.
Yes, he is an awful bastard.
Look how he broke Yuki's heart.
41 is probably my favourite episode of all time. 0079 gets so deliciously crazy towards the end.
He's written to be a self insert in the novels which works well, but in the anime, once he's fleshed out to be a complete entity he just comes off as a sarcastic dickhead.
Maybe I just haven't watched the series in a while but that's how I remember him being. Also he started this trend of KyoAno going for male MCs who are overly dismissive of the world around them. I just never understood the appeal of that.
I just wish Lalah was more interesting.
Yeah she was nothing more than a plot device.
At least the whole newtype shit gave us cool action.
Gurren Lagann reference?
Kyon isn't just sarcastic, but he can't help himself when it comes to what's good for him. In that regard he's like many people who refuse to do something because they feel it'll be shit, are forced to do it, secretly enjoy it but never want to tell. He lacks flexibility in the way he thinks, that's why he's so fond of Haruhi.
This post always bothered me. Why do people think that 4chan is worse during summer and the weekends? What's stopping the children, who don't have any other responsibilities, from constantly browsing? If anything we would have an increase in hard-working and smart users who can only have breaks during their weekend/summer.
He's more than author insert. The novel Kyon is much more versed in humanities than he is in the anime at that. The movie depiction of Kyon is the most accurate of how he is in the novels imo.
Damn it, why could Andou live but not Ishida?
I've been seeing more people recognizing the greatness of this lately.
It's pretty good OP, but I think you're forgetting something.
I never got why this ending was so great. I mean, it's definitely better compared to the rest of the series, but the way /a/ makes it to be some sort of emotional masterpiece makes me wonder.
>I just wanna be ordinary.
>two seasons and half a movie later
>Fun things are fun.
Truly this triumphant moment of introspective revelation is worthy to be praised and celebrated to the utmost of our ability. Has any other series accomplished as much in as little time? I don't think so. The profound nature and sheer depth of Kyon's character development and his realization, is unequalled in anime and Japanese entertainment media in general. With his recognition and acceptance of who he is and that he likes what he likes, Kyon handily beat out all competition. And he did it while standing on his own head.
You don't necessarily need to talk about depressing or violent things to be interesting. Kyon learned that despite his closed mindedness and all his efforts to say otherwise he loved what he had, and started treasuring it instead of fighting against it. Actually, that fact is very obvious if you read a bit between the lines but what's genuinely satisfying is seeing him admit he was luring himself and complained for nothing. Many people experience this contradiction.
You are just underestimating people. Even if people realized the joke, what do expect them to reply? "Great joke man", "lol" or just cancerous reaction images of smug people? I understand it might be important to convince others that you're a special snowflake for understanding puns, but don't expect everyone else feels the same way.
Posting my personal favorite.
>his face when he watches the hologram flower
>it's all so horribly bleak yet you can feel the subtle warmth and peace in his expression
>you recall all the moments that lead up to this and are left to contemplate with him for a bit before the credits start rolling
The only thing worth remembering is the agonizing death which consumed my soul during the first 19? episodes to only be liberated by the last 4?
My favorite "scene" is probably the bell episode during kill cashjew.
The climactic sprint scene in the end of Millennium Actress is my favorite scene from any motion picture.
go back to leddit please
let me try
i don't have a better pic for this though
Got nothing on this to be honest family
When was this thread about animation.
The scene had a well executed buildup and had good shots, regardless of how shit some sections of the manga was it was a very well done scene.
Paranoia agent was great in the beginning. The ending of the series was pretty bland and not that interesting. Even this scene is just your average "break trough the illusions" scene, as much as I like the series, sadly.
Why are you so aggressive about this? It's clear there's people who like the series and people who do not. Is this such a big surprise to you?
>"Waaah how can you enjoy something I cant'?"
Fuck me, I honestly got chills from just reading the "Of course!"
Can't help but wonder how many novel pages I just read.
>Heard about PS2 game
>Expect Trigun: Non-stop shooting edition
>Get rise and fall of zombie gangsters
Gungrave was not what I was expecting at all, and it was great for it.
I don't know why /a/ loves this scene so much, it's not even the best in the movie.
I've had the pleasure of introducing no fewer than three different groups of friends to Kaiba.
It's always great to see the reactions.
Reminder to always skip the first episode.
this arc was not that great but the climax was bone chilling
>Try to post webM
>some anon already posted it
muh nigga. I'll post second best scene in anime history.
I'd vote for Tumbling Down, if only for the fact that every single one of you knows the scene from that description alone.
Although, the scene in Inou Battle where best girl snaps at MC for his Chuuni bullshit was pretty good.
TTGL's "Let me see you grit those teeth." is a pretty good low-high-low jump, makes it memorable.
But really, we all know it's this scene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSWDEXZdSoA
the initial scene 'tight-rope' walking scene in Kaiji was gud
i loved the foray above ground in texhnolyze
gon just telling everyone no in the hunter exam was pretty great ( against caped baldi )
Anime for all its bells and whistles is pretty mediocre at invoking emotion.
That's just a stupid excuse that newfags give. A dub can be worse, as good, or better than the original audio. It all depends on the casting and acting. Only a fucking idiot would think something like, "The dubs I heard were bad so every dub is bad!" You might as well also say, "I've met a bad person so all people are bad." If you were to do so, you'd probably stop coming here and that'd be doing us a favor but you can't have that.
the vast majority of dubs are shit. are you really arguing against this? there can be exceptions, but then my second point was that a good dub is still a dub and not part of the original source. which is inferior. do you still follow?
Make way fellas. Greatest anime scene coming through
Personal favorite. Death scenes in general seem to be more impactful.
a dub lacks a significant amount of what contributes to the anime. you lose everything about the original VAs. you likely break timing, too. but you don't gain anything in this process about the original material.
so your argument is like saying you can enjoy a good thing in its own category. but that thing, even if good, is categorically bad. otherwise, explain what makes a dub worth watching.
Assuming it's a good dub, it's like seeing a good remake of a movie you like. It gives you the feeling of enjoying that particular thing while also experiencing a different actor's take on a role you like.
i've never found a single remake of a series or movie by a different author to be enjoyable, let alone good. and if i wanted a different take on something i'd read essays/blogs/articles which specialize in that kind of thing.
>muh subjective opinion
and thus the argument comes to a close and we gain nothing.
>i've never found something to be good
Still subjective. Just because you say "I have good taste and I know what's good and not I'm not subjective" doesn't change anything. If you want the discussion to move away from "to each his own", you need to actually bring points to discuss instead of saying X is good and Y is bad.
>It all depends on the casting and acting
Looks like something only a fucking idiot would think.
What about the difference between languages, leading to worse mouth flap sync or limiting your ability to have natural dialogue.
What about the localization?
What about the clash between what is usually Japanese music (maybe even the original VA) and other language VAs? Dubfags often go on about muh immersion, so I imagine that's a relevant point.
Chronological all the way, but make sure to watch episode 00 first
It's Episode 01 in the broadcast order, Episode 25 in the chronological (Mikuru Asahina's Adventure Episode 00). Starts off like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmAgD3h0bcc in case you're not sure which order you've downloaded.
Toei animated it, it counts. It's the greatest animated moment in history.
>Hamfisted and explosive emotion not warranted by the events leading up to it
>Sun peeking out and music stopping synches up with that moment
>Great, not laughable and corny
What a hack.
Yeah that was amazing. Dr Ozaki was the shit.
This scene was also pretty fucking good.
>see arararagi gif
Am I a little girl now?
Objectively it's this
The last 2 episodes were fucking amazing.
I must agree.
5 centimetres of shit was the most anticlimactic piece of garbage I have ever watched, worse than EVA.
The first arc starts out great, the second is never resolved, the third makes the first and second arcs completely pointless, therefore making the movie fucking pointless.
Oh and we get a nice gay rock ballad with a montage ending. Fucking copout.
If you like that pretentious deepshit you should hang yourself. What a waste of time and money. All that beautiful animation wasted on awful direction amd writing.
I actually like sad/bittersweet endings to romance stories, but that was just fucking lazy.
5 cm was a miserable attempt to evoke sympathy or empathy in its audience without working at it. Shinkai thinks singular expression of exaggerated melancholy and using flowery language is all one needs to establish a link, and all he gets is my contempt for his effort. The sheer lack of catharsis accompanied by cheese in the form of music at the end is addled even further by the absurd single mindedness of its protagonist and the shallowness of everything present in the movie. Despite the nature of the movie, it lacked what I would described as human feeling and it has made the rest of his filmography repulsive since it's generally regarded as his magnum opus.
Look at this fucking cinematography.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE LIKE THAT?
This is the best
Or maybe the Helicopter scene
Or the Tank scene
the whole movie really
I never liked this series, never understood why its so popular either.
Apparently all you need to create the "greatest anime of all time" is to have 7 episodes of depressing internal monologue from a kid with daddy issues, and some epic animation for 2 seconds before 5 minutes of a stillframe with cicada noises. Oh and completely go over budget, deliver a fucking awful ending, then remake the ending into a movie and somehow make it worse than the original.
That hospital scene in EOE sure was some DEEP LORE
Misato turning into a whore and molesting a little boy sure was important to the story and not just blatant fanservice for waifufaggots
You just dont understand the SYMBOLISM man its actually super deep like, Biblical references!!1
Adam and Eve do you GET IT YET FAGGOT? LOOK HARR DEEPU MAI STORI IS AMERICAN SCUM
I honestly never did this before, but i am truly at a loss of what to watch next and i haven't seen SHIT in the grand scheme of things.
At the risk of getting banned, i implore you to reconsider your "READ THE WIKI FOR RECS!"-mentality, which is correct and i agree with it, just this once, and recommend me something Good to watch. Anything, even moe slice of life.
This is my list for reference.
Thanks a lot.
The guy was joking...
But honestly, the plot may not be the best, but the way it is executed is nothing short of wonder.
It was fucking revolutionary at the time.
The symbolism in Eva has very little to do with why I liked it. Part of the reason that eva appeals so much to me is that the characters are such interesting interpretations of humanity. They're all utter pieces of shit, with just enough redeeming qualities that they still manage to be likeable, and many of their stories are common interpretations of stereotypical real life problems that people go through. Watching the characters break down and deal with the end of the world is fascinating in its own sense, the symbolism is just kind of the cherry on top.
Its poorly written tripe and some of the most pretentious deepshit I've ever seen.
I never saw it as a kid, I saw it as an adult and I hated it. I wanted to like it because everyone had told me how amazing it was, so I kept watching and waiting for it to get good; It never did. EoE left me feeling even angrier than before.
People only like it because of nostalgia and >MUH CHRISTIAN SYMBOLISM
>the symbolism is just kind of the cherry on top
And it has nothing to do with "lel biblical references" for the most part. It's about showcasing the psychology or personality of the characters in the scene.
You're a dumbass.
Sure, you're still a piece of shit for asking for reccomendations though.
First off, your taste is obviously /a/-"good taste"-core, it seems like you try too hard to enjoy shows that are obviously meant to be good and discard many other shows, especially noticing the bottom of your list. I'd first advise you to have a little more fun and not take things so seriously.
Anyways, the most obvious missing show seems to be ABe's works, namely Haibane Renmei and Texnolhyze, based on how you've scored things I'm willing to bet you'd like both of those.
You've seen Perfect Blue, might as well check out Satoshi Kon's other works, Paprika is right up your alley.
Might as well throw Kino no Tabi on there as well, again in that vein. Same with Serial experiments Lain and Dennou Coil.
Now, aside from some shows to watch, you need some more shows to challenge your viewpoints. I don't really understand your taste, anon. You seem to enjoy dialogue driven shows, but rated most of -Monogatari poorly? You also rated Hellsing Ultimate, a show that's basically nothing but action very highly, yet didn't like Black Lagoon? You also seem to enjoy Jun Maeda's works, although you'd have to explain that one to me, as he's really struggled to adapt to the anime medium aside from his ability to pull at heartstrings.
Denpa Teki na Kanojo
The Soul Taker
Aside from that, you'll have to clarify some of your taste for me.
>to be likable
Shinji was a frustrating little bitch, his father was a complete numbskull and shit parent, Rei is a literally who, Asuka is a raging turbocunt, Misato is a weak willed whore, her relationship with her ex boyfriend made me feel like I was watching NTR, ect. I couldnt sympathize with any of them, I seriously disliked or even hated the characters. I felt nothing when they died, I wasnt given a reason to care about any of them.
If there is something I did like about the show it would be the fight scenes, which were totally fucking kick ass I admit. Pity they had such a crappy budget to work with because the animation outside of the action sequences was, lets be honest here, pretty shit.
>stop disliking what I like, doo doo head!
This is another reason why I so avidly dislike it; the fanbase. Insufferable cunts.
Thanks for your detailed reply.
Paprika seems interesting and it's probably what i am watching tonight. I also saved the rest of your list/post for future reference. To answer your questions
>You seem to enjoy dialogue driven shows
>but rated most of -Monogatari poorly?
8's and 6's are poor scores? I might've liked some arcs better than the others. Also to be fair, a lot of the dialogue in the monogatari series is superficial. That's one of the traits as of why i like the shows i guess.
Also the action scenes in Hellsing ultimate isn't something i see everyday, black lagoon was the standard "i shoot 500 bad guys while dodging bullet storm at the same time"-type of action. It's supposed to be over the top, but anyway, i did not dislike the series, it's average in my opinion.
I could go into further detail if you like. What other shows/scores do i need to clarify?
>People like it for X reasons because it's complete shit so why could I they otherwise, here's some more poorly constructed thoughts I must get out of there
>What an insufferable fanbase, calling me a dumbass, another reason I dislike the show
Fuck off, idiot. Maybe try not presenting yourself as an ignorant ass and people won't mistake you for one.
>Poorly constructed thoughts
More like poorly constructed post. You seem a little bit agitated there. Slow down, relax.
Its ok we dont all have to like the same things, I'm just pointing out why I dislike it and why I think its overrated trash.
Tell me, if not nostalgia, the edgy symbolism, or some kind of /a/ indoctrination, what did you like about it? How did it speak to you?
Dont give me that "psycological" bullshit or "its a commentary on depression", thats just technical terms for pretentious deepshit, it says nothing about the quality of the writing or direction. Give me a real answer.
Came here to post this. Love everything about Planetes.
Well good for you. Better answer than what I expected.
Planetes is beautiful
Im reading the manga at the moment, its so much better than the anime.
I wish there was more stuff like this out there. It gives me an Arthur C Clarke / oldschool scifi vibe.
>Well good for you. Better answer than what I expected.
Forgot to mention that i am not him.
I just want to be entertained, i don't care what genre it is. And evangelion peaked the Entertainment factor for me.
Ah, you actually use the /10 scale correctly? That makes much more sense as to your scores, then. I'm so used to 7/10 being average and anything below is varying degrees of garbage.
A couple of shows that you may enjoy but might challenge your scores a bit:
Now and then, Here and There
Kara no Kyoukai
Kill la Kill (you seem to enjoy nonstandard action, this and TTGL will both serve)
And some stuff that I would personally like to see how you receive:
I think that's more than enough to get you started, senpai desu. Get the fuck out and go watch some anime.
>Get the fuck out and go watch some anime.
15 mins into paprika, a str8 10/10 so far m8. I will watch everything you listed.
I actually started casshern sins and penguindrum a few years ago but had to drop them cause of army duty. I kinda forgot about them.
Anyway, where i come from, people say "Many words are poverty" or something like that if you translate it literally. I'm going to watch some anime.
Thank you for your time.
It's hard to say. I'm rewatching it and I'm not very far at the moment, it's like reconstructing my opinions on it. Eva presents change within its characters continuously through scenes, it's what keeps interaction between characters as their personalities are further established or reinforced by actual conflict presented by or in the form of other characters that constructs the image we have of them interesting, there's nearly always some value getting turned on its head inside the character (or being doubled down on, especially in Shinji's case) that adds weight to the story and their relationship in some way - many noted contradictory actions that gives the characters a multifaceted nature that nonetheless follow logically based on background information or life experience provided by the story. I've been watching Seikai no Senki recently, and this is definitely why it feels so boring and uneventful.
It builds its characters through action, weaves in exposition through imagery or indirectly revealing details through dialogue through a related subject most of the time or natural direct characterization prompted by some action, and informs you further of the mind state of the character through use of cinematography or character acting that adds to scenes e.g. how Shinji is apprehensive about Misato's inviting him to live with her and how she eases him in by saying it's his home, it's immediately followed by a lingering shot of her name plate on the door when it's closed. Shinji framed between his boxes of stuff. It's mostly why the last two episodes are shit in comparison. Otherwise, it looks cool, like picture related, has exciting action, and I enjoy the moody atmosphere it cultivates.
>This is another reason why I so avidly dislike it; the fanbase. Insufferable cunts.
You're much more insufferable than most fans though. Your very first post literally contains stuff like
>You just dont understand the SYMBOLISM man its actually super deep like, Biblical references!!1
Adam and Eve do you GET IT YET FAGGOT? LOOK HARR DEEPU MAI STORI IS AMERICAN SCUM
No one ever says stuff like this (at least not on /a/, I have no idea about other communities), yet you pretend like this is the most used phrase.
You seem to have made a very common mistake when it comes to Eva. You probably read somewhere that many people think it's the greatest Anime ever and that it's 2deep4u so you went in expecting some deep philosophical shit. You noticed all the religious symbolism and thought this is the reason why people think it's 'deep', which really couldn't be more wrong. All that religious stuff is much more about atmosphere and style than it is about substance. Like this guy said >>133844131
>the symbolism is just kind of the cherry on top.
The reason people think it's deep is because its characters and their problems are very close to real life situations. Not that real people have to face fighting giant aliens, but many people do have problems caused by similar character traits which are present in Eva's characters (avoidant, narcistic, etc.).
>I seriously disliked or even hated the characters.
You seem to compare their appeal to other Anime characters, which are almost always written to be as appealing as possible (waifus, etc.), when you should compare them to real people. Eva's characters aren't exclusively horrible, they also have some nice/charming moments, just like real people. But as their situation becomes too problematic, they become very unappealing. I'm not gonna say 'humanity sucks', but sometimes real people become unappealing as well once you get to know them, just like Eva's characters.
And not only does Eva present its characters as such, but it also tackles these problems as well and offers some sort of analysis plus possible solutions on how to deal with these sort of problems.
And it does all of that while still being an entertaining show, keeping your interest with awesome fights and cool action, which is an incredible achievement.
>inb4 autistic Evafags always feel offended when someone criticizes their favorite show
I just think you are wrong in your reasoning for why Eva is supposed to be shit and wanted to tell you why. I probably won't be able to change your subjective opinion on something, just like I wouldn't be able to convince someone his favorite color should be blue instead of red. If you didn't like it or felt bored, etc. then that's ok, but maybe now you understand 'why its so popular'.
Out of curiosity I'd like to know a couple of your favorite shows to gain a better understanding your requirements for a show to be good.
>Not Be Invoked
>Not the epilogue as Cantata Orbis plays and the souls of the dead move on to a new universe and a new hope
Shit taste, to be quite honest mi familia.
Then again, a lot of people haven't even seen Eva, much less stuff before the 90s, so I'm not exactly surprised.
I can't imagine just how much more impact it would've had if Episode 1 didn't exist.
