What have you anons been watching lately?
Personally burning through a rewatch of the Macross TV anime. Holding pretty good t.b.h.
Haven't been watching much anime lately. Seen some Kodocha a while ago, but still at episode 5. And still at episode 29 of Turn A Gundam, same as weeks ago.
Anime is hard. I can never watch it, because I'm never in the mood.
Been thinking about the last episode of the second YKK OVA lately, maybe I end up finishing the anime soon.
I read pic related this week, it was pretty satisfying, although it definitely overcomplicated Shion and Mokuren's relationship more and more over their backgrounds. Mokuren was much better than Arisu, though she was okay.
I lol'd heartily when Shion and Gyokuran were in huge repressed love with each other.
Maison Ikkoku. It's not as good as Pic related, but it's way better than Ranma.
161 GB was probably the largest size torrent i have ever downloaded. But now that the Blue-ray of Urusei Yatsura is completed i will have to re-watch it, haven't watched any of it since mid 2000's. 272gb torrent size will take a while.
My plan to encode most or all of the better.php AB DVD rips is probably gonna stop soon, the rest are either live action or Chinese series. Perman is probably next. Finished Uchuu space patrol recently, up on AB and the Youtube account.
>it's an anon rewatches Akagi with mechas episode
I copied this from a post on here once before, I think this is how to watch Urusei Yatsura as it was released:
Start with episodes 1-58
Then, movie 1, Only You
Movie 2, Beuatiful Dreamer
Movie 3, Remember My love
141 - 174
175 - 195
Movie 4, Lum the Forever
OVA 2 - 11
Movie 6, Always, my Darling
Movie 5, The Final Chapter
>The ancient CGI always made ignore it.
Initial D is the proof that it's not the quality of the CGI that matters but how you use it.
>Lupin the III
How do you even start with Lupin? Is the very beginning subbed?
I watched them anon.
Delete them and get the BD if you can.
This is the LRE (best pre-bd), i'll post the bd next post.
I've been making my way through Dunbine, it's interesting how many tropes of isekai anime were already there 34 years ago. Not that it's at all a bad example; if it came out today I'd still love it, having the MC switch sides a couple episodes in is an interesting twist, the politics of the fantasy world have more depth than in a lot of modern series, and I'm a sucker for the genre anyway.
But I still laugh at Tomino's naming sense (or lack thereof).
I can't get the BDs at the moment since it would throttle my internet giving the size but thanks for posting the comparisons.
>Isekai is originally a Japanese thing
That's where you're wrong, the name may be Japanese but the idea was solely British going as far back as Narnia or even earlier than that. There may be other cases but I'm pretty sure Narnia is what popularized it in fiction. But still pretty coincidental two ideas originating in Britain(isekai/NEET), have become synonymous with Japanese culture.
How is Dunbine anyway? Was planning on making it the next non-Gundam series by Tomino I watch after I'm done with Turn A.
I watched Maison Ikkoku a couple of months ago, and argued a bit about it here.
I don't have anything else pre 2000 still on my backlog, hell, my backlog is pretty small right now, I've watched pretty much everything I wanted.
I did download LOGH, I'm kind of put off by the low quality and yellow subs though, is it really that good or just a meme?
You were also considering Dunbine after you finish Turn A? That's my idea as well. Turn A is going slowly, so may not start Dunbine this year, but the idea is to do something along these lines. Can't start too many Tomino anime at the same time.
Yes! I really liked that anime, possibly in my top 5 of 1998, or at least top 7-8. Very enjoyable, fun and the animation/looks were amazing!!
It's good but a slow burner though. Watch My Conquest is the Sea of the Stars as a sample on whether you'd like the OVA series.
Last Tomino I watched was Zambot 3 which was awesome, good character development and unique soundtrack. Turn A is pretty comfy so far, I love how he's made us forgotten it's a Yoshiyuki Tomino anime until death and destruction starts happening. Poe best girl so far.
I got really into it, but I only had the first 25 episodes downloaded, so had to stop there. Didn't have the storage space to download the rest either, but since then I did stream a few episodes, seen 29 episodes so far. And now I'm kinda stuck on how to download anime at all, now that all the sites are gone, so even though I now have the storage space, I may still have to stream the rest. Which is a problem, because most of Turn A Gundam, I saw while on the train or bus, where there is no internet to stream from. So to continue, I have to be at home, and change my habits for Turn A Gundam.
I know it has predecessors (and Narnia's not the oldest, Alice in Wonderland and Barsoom and probably some other stuff predate it) but this is the oldest example in anime I'm aware of, and it's still interesting to see how things have evolved over the years.
Dunbine's really good so far, I'm enjoying it a lot.
>The wait for Ideon BDs
I remember, I've been meaning to rewatch since I used /m/subs shitty quality the first time round but now I have the entire thing I'm looking forward to watching it again.
Macross 7 is my 2nd least favorite, I don't feel like it really paid off. Turn A on the contrary was a wild fucking ride, even with the early pacing issues.
With Macross I only dislike Plus more because I absolutely hate the cast, but the direction was a lot better than 7.
7 has GOAT soundtrack though.
Watched entirety of Touch in a couple of weeks even though i was only gonna check out the first episode, since i had read the manga.
Macross Plus is one of the better, if not the best, series I have seen so far.
Never have I seen such amazing pacing with a good story and amazing art.
90s OVAs we're the best in general I suppose.
Resumed watching Sailor Moon since I nearly dropped due to how repetitive it was getting. Now that we're getting good exposition on the lore things are getting more interesting.
>Ojou-sama and teasing personality
Venus is top tier, best girl without a doubt.
Do I watch Touch or Cross Game for my first Adachi?
Currently watching Vifam and the show is pretty solid. I expected to find the kids annoying but outside Kent they're normally enjoyable. I also like how they take the time to acknowledge that space is both huge and empty.
What happens to Ms. Kate is fucking horrifying.
Also good music. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqMSWy01Qng
Subs are good but the video quality is what you would expect from an 80's TV series with no BD's. Not sure where you would get it from, I got mine from BakaBT before they went full retard.
Such an amazing masterpiece. The first five or six episodes were a bit too cheesy but then it quickly begun improving and it basically never stopped. Osamu Dezaki was a god, his style incredible, I need to watch more of his stuff.
I have recently started watching Gundam, mostly because I have never seen anything from the UC continuity and man am I disappointed. The original series was ok, but at least I could appreciate it for the impact it had. I throughly hated Zeta and after four episodes of ZZ I wonder if I should just drop it.
I just downloaded it one whim last year. It's pretty good.
Ai no fucking Kusabi.
I can't believe I got into this, but the original was a gorgeous work. I'm now trying to find the novels, too. Yes, I did try to watch the new series... And I just couldn't get into it like before. The timeline was all over the place and the sensuality was few and far between.
>lyk if u cri evrytiem
really wish there are more girls with brawler fights
Natsuki Crisis and sukeban deka are the only ones i can think of when it comes to this because of how straightforward it is. Modern brawlers are too silly(ex. ikkitousen had more ecchi than brawler fights, and ben-to is full of bad femdon fetish).
Orphan-Subs says they have all of the Stop! Hibari-Kun episodes "done" and just need TL checking to release the rest of the episodes according to the last release post on their blog
if someone wants to help. Great show.
Watched a lot of old Ghibli films which was quite fun, half way through the first season of Ashita No Joe and I quite like it. Also downloaded F, an interesting F1 themed anime, which is apparently highly technical and detailed, but suffers from being translated from Italian to English, and the Italian translation took a lot of liberties with the original dialogue. I might just read the manga if that has a better translation.
I love everything about Macross Plus
Right here nigga.
Urusei yatsura: 6 tapes
Saber riderds: 10 tapes
Randma: 5 tapes
Angels egg: Full movie
Marcros: 2 tapes.
Got some raws from dad who worked in Japan in the 90's. Fucking hell hole when it comes to working hours accoring to him. And when they went out to drink, the japs couldn't handle drinking as we do (Swedish). They had 3 beers and were wasted.
you make it sound like muscle girls are not arousing
It's extremely homo.
Buuuuut... I mean, it does have stereotypical 90's anime space stuff. Lots of beeps and boops and laser noises and space biker gangs.
You ignore the explicit gay sex and the cock ring shit and the rest of it's still pretty good.
The blond guy gets his legs cut off, bottom gets his dick lopped off and they both die in a giant fiery explosionso it's pretty metal.
Not in the mood to watch anime or play videogames, not having a job is killing me
Started this last week cuz i wanted something easy to watch before going bed and surprisingly is quite fun so far
I have watched the first 6 episodes and the show seems quite dumb but at least it's not cliche (for now) and it feels like it doesn't try to be the ultimate shonen where the MC is trying to save the universe with his crushing worlds powers
Also looks super cheap but it really fits how lighthearted is the show
Thoughts on the LOGH translation? I've read the first book which seemed a little clunky but I liked how it felt like I was reading an Asimov book in places. Flipped through the third book and the part where Rhinehard is lamenting over Sigfried is pretty well written.
Is this for real? I've been waiting forever!
>almost all of Tomino's work is trainwreck tier
I'm sure there are threads on /m/ where your shit taste would fit right in.
You know how I know the only Tomino works you've watched are Gundam
and maybe Brain Powerd.?
Is this pasta, or do you just naturally hate fun?
Samurai Girl Real Bout High School. God I love this shit.
been watching 79 gundam, it's pretty good
people who complain about the quality are spoiled as fuck
I just downloaded all of it again. Here's the Captain Crunch link. It'll take you about three days to download but they're good quality.
HE JUST A SOLDIER
>watching subs of an anime i grew up watching in english
That being said, this reminds me that I need to watch Mermaid Forest again.
>tfw you watch the previews of other anime on Ranma VHSs and piss yourself as a child when
Masato stabs Yuta in the eye and licks it.
Do you have access to sekrit clubs? Otherwise cry and hope that there really is an (nice) afterlife.
>people who complain about the quality are spoiled as fuck
Yeah, I was surprised how nice it was considering all the warnings I've read. There's always someone more elitist than you is the takeaway.
Anime literally turned me gay.
26 episodes and not a single flaw in my opinion. I got spoilered a lot of times so i know where's going next, but still enjoying it.
I keep having to remind myself that DNAngel was a thing. This fucking shit with the crazy drawings and the weird shaped heads.
Shit was almost exclusively for fujoshis.
Just so happened it was one of the only animes they kept playing on Comcast On-demand for free in the 2000s so I just kept watching it.
Aishite Knight is finally up on bakabt, so go watch it.
I am, it's pretty good so far.
Just watched the first episode of Gunsmith Cats. Goofy but fun. Rally is great.
So guys, what are some of your favorite songs from pre-2000 anime?
I love a funky bass and singers with an 80s metal power scream,
and the occasional pop song from any of Rumiko's works.
All about "muh android rights" if you're into that, with the added spin that
she can get pregnant.Overall it's a pretty decent cyberpunk OVA. Just avoid the shitty sequel movie.
gimme some of that real robo shit any day
Does Macross 7 get better? Saw the first 3 episodes, and I can't get into it. I loved SDF Macross and Do you remember love, but this dumb asshole MC with his stupid guitar trying to be Minmay is just making me mad.
No. It just repeats the same bullshit until half way through when the plot shifts into gear before repeating the same shit over and over in the 2nd half too.
Gotta go for Zeta and ZZ next. People like to shit on ZZ, but it has the best girls in the whole series.
Currently watching whatever old OVA I find interesting enough. Right now I'm watching Midnight Eye Goku. Kinda stupid but damn I love this settings, I can watch scenes with futuristic looking car driving through cyberpunk city at night forever.
Rewatching dirty pair now, it's still one of my all time favorites
rewatch soon bois
Fuck you, Flash designs are sexy as fuck.
Everybody needs to go watch the OnDeed release, the previous ones were garbage but now it's in respectable quality that it can be enjoyed.
Because 90s designs are shittier than glorious 80s designs 90% of the time, I mean just look at this 90s ass clown.>>157729933
Pretty much somes up my feelings for both Ideon, Zeta and ZZ.
I recently watched Tekkaman Blade II without seeing the TV show it follows. Is it worth watching? The OVA had really nice animation so I'm not sure if I want to watch what might be just a drawn out low budget Tekkaman kills aliens with his super move for 50 episodes. Music seems pretty rad https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKmceKAyuA0
>Because 90s designs are shittier than glorious 80s designs 90% of the time, I mean just look at this 90s ass clown.
So you're actually just being elitist for no reason other than "muh 80s" and hating on BASARA of all people (even though he is a clown)
Well I just prefer the more grounded looking 80s designs, while 90s starts to look more like parody to me.
Just finished watching The Big O, that sorta counts right? pic related. I really enjoyed it
