Post here every time you finish an anime/manga
1145 1178
As this board can be rather slow and the standard 'post here when you come' format hasn't helped recently, I figured I'd start a content/recommendation thread.
So, here are the rules:
Whenever you finish reading a manga or watching an anime movie, season, or short series, post here and give it a short review. (Post spoilers for major or minor plot events in spoilers, obviously.) If you feel someone else's review is shit, tell them why so they can improve. I'll start.
Name: Made In Abyss
The Good: the worldbuilding is phenomenal, and the environments are gorgeous. The titular abyss or Netherworld that the story takes place in has varied and versatile landscapes, and each and every one of them is memorable. The creature design is serviceable, a few are uninspired but for the most part they feel at place in a hellscape.
The Bad: there are a few plot inconsistencies and conveniences. Near the end, one of the characters who is portrayed as an experienced researcher seemingly wastes all but two of his test subjects, and then allows the remaining two to escape easily. Reg's arm length seems to fluctuate depending on what the writers need. One minute he's expressing difficulty rescuing the other main character because he lacks the length, the next he's lowering himself down what are presumably hundreds of meters to descend in the abyss safely. The two hollows don't have that well of a defined dynamic, so when you see one of them turned into cat yogurt you don't feel the same emotional investment. The one sentient hollow also sort of stole the show for me, I found her motivations were far more interesting than 'I gotta find my mom.' or 'I am a robot, I will protect you from danger because plot.'
The Ugly: I didn't really like the humor. 99% of it is just some character making a remark about dicks, pussies, balls or butts. Maybe I'd find it a bit less unbearable if they weren't all around 12 (or appear to be around 12). It's just disgusting, felt like the writers were child groomers.

Episode 1.jpg
Plastic nee-san is a collection of comedic shorts following the three members of the plastic model club.
With antics, pettiness, and douchbaggery they make their way through the days. It's not coherent, has degeneracy, and a homo for one short ([s[who has been taken in by the police) at least one of the 2 minute ish shorts will bring a smile.
If not you've only wasted 27 minutes, and now have more meme material.
This makes as much sense as the anime does plus its JoJo.
For anyone wanting to see the wtf fest for yourselves. Ponies afterwards are recommended.
>For anyone wanting to see the wtf fest for yourselves.
Tentacles again?
Finished the first season of Goblin Slayer, Shield Hero, and Reincarnated as a Slime.
Holy shit, they're all shit.
Let me start with the worst, Slime stopped being funny after the first half of the first episode. I was hoping it would get better, but I lost any hope once the ogres got names. I feel betrayed by the reviewers.
Then there's the disappointment, Goblin Slayer. I was really fucking looking forward to this. People hyped up to hell and back as an anti-PC, no punches pulled masterpiece. It wasn't PC, but it wasn't a masterpiece. The anime lost steam as soon as the magic users proved to be impotent. And then there's the generic anime bullshit. Awkwardly inserted fanservice, unrealistic harem formation, fucking ice cream. The ending fight was also disappointing.
The least disappointing, but still kind of bad, Shield Hero. The biggest issue this anime had was unreasonable characters holding back the plot progression. How do these numbnuts not feel guilty for holding back the shield hero every step of the way? Why the fuck do they continue to give him shit after they are proven wrong and unreasonable? Why in the motherfucking fuck would the filolian queen kill all four heros, including the shield hero, instead of just the bad three? The characters just piss on their own logic sometimes.
Before anyone asks, yes, I finished the whole season for each. As much as it pained me. My next anime is Charlotte, I already set my expectations extra low.
Recommend spoilers, but it's also a few years old by now...
Shield boi
1. They are fucking nutjobs years of indoctrination built a mental fence after years of indoctrination, and being hyper focused. Logically all the fucks had to do is give him an assortment of weird shit to absorb into the shield.
There was a whole religion in human kingdom saying shield boi was the big bad evil guy. (They could have used the cool religious tool thingy to be helpful instead of being a cunt. They didn't ever show it being used to repel the monsters at all. They have everyone with loads of mana super charge the thing, and fuck up the monsters from afar.)
2. Filolian queen was lieing to make Filo (the wagon chick) fight with everything she has. Also some thing about how every hero has to be dead before they can get a refund. Is true, but isn't viable.
3. Human queen did more, but not enough. Sure there was magic tv to broad cast it all. OP magic user is a mini nuke unto herself. It's all so tiring.
4. Alot of potential not explored further. Maybe they will do so later, but...

Gobby killah kun isn't PC and that's all. It can have some redpills looking at it from certain angles.
Harem formation?
1. This is from my limited point of view D&D animeified. Magic users using their bs to make ice cream makes sense, they have a monopoly. The ice trade is important for keeping goods... good. Creativity makes the magic what it is, and most don't bother using it or training it that way.
2. Elf holds back Slayer man too much. Being an irrational cunt not wanting to use poision, and fire, and explosions.
3. I kinda half remember the fight. It's more of a 'Yeah Teamwork!' than a fight with world sharing stakes. Also shows the world is full of people that could take care of the problem quickly, but don't.

Reincarnated as a (wet gooey mess) Slime
I haven't watched the anime. I did read the manga, and the web novel. And it's been a while.
Slime (insert gender here, but is actually based on the body so is asexual) goes around being a big damn hero all the time. Any problem Slime has it. If not they get the people/thing to get it done.
For a normal KILL THE MONSTERS it isn't this one. It's basicly a slice of life with power leveling and skill aqusition.

So what exactly made the animes not be as good as it could have been?
Like I said, Slime anime wasn't funny, Goblin Slayer was lackluster and falls into generic tropes, and Shield Hero just has really shitty characters who never learn and are constantly holding the story back.

Is This Board A Failure?
1149 1158 1162
It seems like every other one serves a purpose or has found its groove (except for maybe /cyb/), but /a/ is super fucking dead.
2 replies and 1 files omitted.
Okay, so it's on life-support. Not much better.
What the heck is up with you guys proclaiming a board is "dead"
Sure, /a/ is slow as fuck, it gets almost no posts a day but the board is still there, anyone can post and get some people to post if they make an interesting thread.
As long as one anon can make a post, and another anon can reply, a board is never truly dead, it's just that the current population of mlpol doesn't seem to care too much about /a/nime.
Hmm, but how can we get them to care about anime...
Sebastien Levesque anime when?
Make some webm from good anime and post them on /a/ obviously
Some people might or might not get interested if they are good enough.
Maybe make a thread or another about manga or something like that.
Nope, it's just that ponies steal the show.

Katawa Shoujo anime when?
i like the bottom row, also muh drills is missing.

Hehe, epic.

Chris took a stance that was like T-pose but with his hands pulled up so that they looked like tried to stop somebody with them.

"Secret how to catch a predator technique number 1488!" Yellow light sprang forth from his open palms which contorted began change into a shape. "Please, take a CHAIR!!!"

The yellow lights turned into two wooden chairs. He spun them around in the air before he intertwined their legs infront of him.

You and your sister did not wait for him to finish his preperation of his dark arts. Btw your name was Anon and your sister's was Nonny.

Nonny's body began to gradually glow brighter and brighter until only her blinding silhuett of light rocketed into the air leaving a trail of light that made loops in the air. Then like a lightningstrike this light beam zigzag down to the ground before spun around and while it spun its shape took the form of
a scythe.

Anon lunched forward making several buildings fly by in a blur. With his brown steel toe-cap boots he dog into cobblestone as he slide sideways causing all the stonebreak into splinters that off to the sides. The street would need re-pavement. At first the silvery blade of the scythe hanged near the ground low and with his hand one hte black wooden handle like a hockey club, he twisted his entire body to make the blade slash upwards diagonally. Nonny's blade tore the legs of the chairs into rain of wooden splinters in the air.

Chris fell backwards as the chairs fell to the sides. Chris managed to catch himself from losing balance as he took a low pose to the ground.

Anon managed to take control of his oown balacned after the powerful strike he had inflicted by smoothly transision from his swing to using the scythe to find balance again.

Anon took the initative again and brought the other end of the scythe into the ground as eh ran forward. Nonny's handle bended like

Sometimes I think about joining a waifufag anime forum, making faggy friends, writing terrible erotic fanfiction of me fucking anime girls, and seeing who I can actually get to read this trash and call it good.
What do?
Sit down and spend a whole day thinking about a one-shot story in tousend words and make the greatest piece you have ever written. You are good at writing so why not test you wings?

What about some writing tennis? I write and you continue it tomorrow and I the next day. The first one to fail their responsibility to write loses. Feel no pressure it dosent' have to be that good.

Okay, I serve.

Anon crawled out of his bed when the sunlight began to prod his closed eyes. Walking downstairs like downsyndrome-zombie, Anon was unconsiously expceting to be passed by his imouto, Nonny, in the staircase. This was not the case though. In fact, when he reach the kitchen table he realized that she wasn't even up yet.

Suddenly, he was fully awake and he gave her spot at the table a double take. For a moment he thought he would go up and wake her but then decided against it. If she wanted to snooze for once, thenthat as okay and besides he just knew he would be called out for being a hypocrite about it since he used to mock her for being nervrotic like jew, to theiir mother's disapproval of course, in the morning.

He glanced at the clock and made a mental note to wake her up in five minutes. He made a two sandwiches with ham and then poured himself a glass of milk while he pondered how he would tease his sister for this.

Five minutes came an went and Anon gave her five more. Nothing.

Anon shook his head and moved up to his sister's door. He knocked the coor with his knuckles.

"Nonny, wakey wakey! The sun shines and the birds chriping." But nothing. "Hello?... Nonny?... Okay, I'm coming in okay? So don't be naked," Anon said.

He opened the door slowly. He was expecting it to be slammed shut any second now and to be berated by her angry sister. However, he ended up opening the whole door.

The room was a mess. The floor were littered with clothes. Anon noticed this when he stepped on something soft that clinged around his toes, it was a pair of pink panties!!!

Anon shook off the panties from his foot.

Books seems to have fallen from their places on the bookshelf and had been left laying on the floor.

His sister's desk was covered by map and next of the city and next ot it was a card. He picked the card up to investigate it. First he only saw a black plain side with three golden cricles intersecting with each other. He flipped it around in his hand. The otherside, was a picture of a monster-like creature that would be closest compared to a cheese with its many holes replaced with toothy mouths and worm-like tentacles coming out from it.

Anon didn't know his sister had followed up on his advice to read based lovecraft but it seems like she had. Good for her. He put the card back down.

A cool brezee entered through the window that was mostly covered up by curtains.

He realized that he mess had distracted him from his purpose here. His gaze wanderd to the foor of the bed and found a throng of wangaurds of stuffed animals and then the at the bundle of blankets further up in the bed.

He walked up to the side of her bed. She was wearing some strange blue shirt. It had short sleeves but puffy. Her hair was braided in as if of a professional and on top of that was a silver and blue tiara.

Suddenly, she rolled towards him and the many of the blankets covering her fell off revealing that she was wearing a fancy blue skirt and silver ballet shoes.

Anon grinned as he shook his head. What the fuck? Was she LARPing as a fairy when she was alone? Kek, this was gold.

He then saw a that she was embracing something. Was that a pony?

In her arms, a dog-sized white pony with a blone mane was snoozing.

If most be a new stuffed pet, right? Anon thought as he poked it with his finger.

It openedits eye and their gazes meet.

They both screamed like faggots.

I'm more of a /lit/ fag than an anime kind of guy, but people have been recommending me animes left and right lately and I'd like to give some of them a shot in their best possible format. I'm a bit nervous about Piratebay because of the takeover there, and I'd like to know what sites you all use for your anime torrenting.
11 replies and 4 files omitted.
I'm fairly /lit/ myself and I have been watching anime a long time. I know a lot of older and lesser known stuff that often doesn't get mentioned, I can probably make some recommendations you'd like. I'll go through my collection and see if I can put together a list in the next few days.
>Only problem
I have found another problem
Sorry, I was falling asleep when I wrote that last post and completely forgot about this. Here are my recommendations for some good story anime, in no particular order:

>Cowboy Bebop
This is quite possibly the best thing Japan has ever made. If you've never seen it, you need to watch it immediately.

This one is only six episodes long, and you will probably not like it the first time you watch it, particularly if you don't watch a lot of anime. It's very bizarre and parts of the story are borderline nonsensical. However, I recommend watching through it at least twice, because once you get past the weirdness it's actually a really well-told story about early adolescence. Along with Cowboy Bebop, it also has probably one of the best soundtracks of any anime.

>Record of Lodoss War
This is a now mostly forgotten gem from the 90s that is nonetheless worth watching. It's basically just an animated version of someone's Dungeons and Dragons game, but its fun. There is also a second series called Chronicles of the Heroic Knight, which basically tells the same story with different characters, and even more confusingly overlaps with actual events from the first story. But both are good.

This one is actually somewhat redpilled in that it explores a world in which UBI exists, and shows the kind of atomized, purposeless, friendless lives that humans would most probably live in a world where all their basic needs are provided by government and people mostly communicate through virtual reality. A covert group of survivalists rebells and forms a self-sufficient community that refuses all gibs from the AI government. If I remember correctly it gets pretty bizarre towards the end.

>Kaze No Yojimbo
I've never met another person who has even heard of this series, but it's great if you are able to find it somewhere. It's a contemporary story based on the plot of the Akira Kurosawa film Yojimbo.

>Bamboo Blade
Fun story about a high-school girls' kendo club and the lives of its members. A fairly lighthearted story that is nonetheless quite good. I remember enjoying it a lot.

Fair warning: this one will induce heavy feels. It was written by some of the people from Key, who make visual novels. If you're familiar with the types of stories they write, you should have a rough idea of the kinds of feels you're in for. Highly recommend, though.

Renowned calligraphy artist gets angry and punches a critic in the face over a bad review, and his agent sends him to cool out in a remote village in the country. While there, he develops a relationship with some locals and rediscovers his purpose in both art and life. This is probably the most /lit/-tier anime on this list.

>Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi
Another good story about growing up and coming to terms with things. Has a lot of random silliness to it, but there's a deeper story underneath if you stick with it.

>Revolutionary Girl Utena
This one is good if you like mindfuck stories. The movie is especially weird. If you've ever seen Madoka Magica, I felt that it borrowed a lot from Utena. Basically a dark magical girl story. There's some covert lesbian stuff in there that you can probably ignore.

>Higurashi When They Cry
I'm almost hesitant to include this one on a list of anime recommendations, because the anime itself is not that good. However, it's based on a series of visual novels that are absolutely top-notch. I highly recommend playing the visual novels first; however, as they can be a bit of a time investment, the manga does a pretty decent job of adapting the story and will do in a pinch. However I don't recommend starting with the anime as it abridges quite a bit of the story and leaves out some important details.

>Elfen Lied
Fair warning: this one will also induce heavy feels. It is also pretty fucked-up and gory if that bothers you. Actually, both warnings apply to Higurashi as well.

The Count of Monte Cristo adapted into a sci-fi anime. It has a very unusual visual style that a lot of people don't care for, but if you can get past that it's a good series.

>Chrono Crusade
I haven't seen this one in a long time so it may not be as good as I remember it, but I do remember liking it a lot. Story about a nun and a reformed demon who go around fighting devils and satanism.

>Night Walker
Another old, mostly forgotten gem from the 90s. Kind of a cornball and cliche story about a vampire who feels remorse for taking human life, but it's good.

>Gunslinger Girl
Little girls that have endured excessive trauma and abuse are taken into custody by the Italian government, have their memories wiped and are transformed into bionic super-soldiers who perform contract kills. An incredibly fucked up and bizarre premise that nonetheless makes a pretty good story. There are a few spinoffs of varying quality.

>Excel Saga
This one really doesn't deserve to be on this list, I just like it. The story is complete nonsense but it's funny as fuck. Fair warning: the humor is somewhat degenerate at points.

If I think of more I will add them.
Which anime characters have the biggest tits?
Goku from Naruto.
