Just finished watching Retsuko, top notch anime.
I wouldn't say I have a favorite anime.
I think a lesser known one that I liked was H20: Footprints in the sand. It's also based off an adult VN, if that is more your thing.

I saw this being advertised and it looked odd, is it really that good? Looks like a meme to me. I just started watching Ajin and it's bretty gud.

Okay since we started having /a/ on mlpol, I've kinda wanted to make a thread for this for a while and could definitely do with a thread with some actual discussion in here.

>So what is Kemono Friends?

It follows the adventures of Kaban and her new friend Serval as they explore and learn about all the different "Friends" (Animals turned into humanised versions of themselves) that live within Japari Park.

>Why should I watch it?

What makes this show great for me and a few others is despite the fact it's 3D animation is very basic, it's story is a breath of fresh air. While it may seem basic on the surface and come off as Dora the Explorer there is more hidden below the surface. It's world building is much more showing in a subtle way then telling the viewer straight up. Plus it's a wholesome show thats not like all the kike made shows made for kids these days.

To put it simply, the show is very much like the Japanese version of MLP

So have you watched the show? What do you think about it? Also who is the best Friend?

Yeah this is a huge thing that upset the fan base. The director, Tatsuki, had full creative control over the show due to the fact the Kemono Friends franchise was a failure on arrival. They gave his team of just ten people (Not including voice actors) only $10,000, which is nothing for a full 12 episode TV show. But Tatsuki and the team put 110% into their work despite their lack of 3D animation skills and because of that it became a huge success in Japan.

The reason he was fired though was because after all the episodes were aired he made a teaser image for a season 2 as well as make an episode 12.1, following Fennec and Racoon and uploaded it to his YouTube channel (Which you can still find on there oddly enough https://youtu.be/lh_GcdBamD4 ) Following his firing, his team that worked on the show also quit.

So now the chances for a season 2 are next to nil, or if it does get one then it will be by a completely different team with a lot less creative control then the original team.

Also here have some Alpaca Suri art since my friend I watched this show with loves her quite a lot.

I liked Naruto but it went to shit after a while.
The first fights where tactical and the story and characters was intriguing and the arc on the bridge was actually kind of moving but it just went over the top more and more.
Shippuden was over 30% filler that killed the last bit of interest.


Same for me.


the chunin exams are good tbh


Gaara was awesome then and neiji hinata naruto fight was nice

What is this anime?
While it seems to be the most promising I can't put it into any category yet. Feels weird but I am intrigued.
also what weeb-shit are you looking forward to this season?


stop flattering me baka


What flattering?
Why are you talking to yourself in your thread? Super dumb bro.

What were animes that really affected you and changed what you think or who you are?

For me it is "School days" especially "Everybodies Makoto"

What about you?

I also really liked Angel Beats. There's one called Charlotte done by the same people if you're interested, it's one of the best and most feels-inducing animes I've seen in a while.

Witch Hunter Robin.

It was probably the first Seinen I watched, and it may have been one of the sparks that really sold me on the slower, more talky, indirect kind of storytelling and thinking that I enjoy so much nowadays.


When i was small i used to watch cowboy bebop, survival island, koni-chan, inuyasha, school of detectives and death note.
watching those everyday affected me someway i guess, but i won't attribute my current personality to silly anime



Never watched the whole thing

I'll give it a look

>but i won't attribute my current personality to silly anime

>6pm PST
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Why do I always have to miss such things every single time?


Anime night is tarting in 24 minutes at 6pm PST



I can't wait to pick out a few anime to vote for in the polls.

We could do Yu-Yu Hakusho, we could do Berserk, we could go for the ultimate manime DBZ, we could do Boondocks, we could do Boku no Pico

Lots of potential, for sure. Maybe we could even do some kind of group reading event wherein we take turns reading a kinetic/visual novel? I'd love to do that kind of thing with the /mlpol/ discord server, maybe some Song of Saya.

what's the general consensus on this? I was always under the impression the main draw to the original series was the animation, and it seems incredibly flat in this one. Is it just me being gay or it the show shit?


File: 1529408114537.jpg (126.73 KB, 1500x1125, 61I3bKqvtlL._SL1500_.jpg)

I've only seen the first episode so far, but I find it meh. The story is okay but it so far just seems like a fairly conventional sci fi anime, it lacks a lot of the trippy visual elements that made the first one so fun and bizarre. Story wise it also seems to be playing it a bit safe too, just a standard "lonely bored character has her world shaken up by the arrival of some crazy new person" story. The first one was not just notable because of its visuals, it was the amount of depth it was able to squeeze into a 6 episode series. It's a great story about adolescence.

That said though I've only seen the first episode, I'll try to reserve judgement until I've seen the whole thing, but I kind of suspect I'll be disappointed. A lot of times when a sequel gets made a decade or more after the fact it's hard to find the same groove again, and I suspect that's what's happening here.

I like that they got The Pillows back to do the music again at least.

Potato Salad


"I like corm" may seem like a simple mistranslation however it is much more deeper than that. It shows that the like girl is intelligent enough to perceive hat the corn may actually may want to be called "corm". Now if this is the case this girl'so intellect is insanely high intellect as it shows that she has a deep connection to the world despite being so young. This could mean she is related to some of the greatest minds the world has ever known such as napoleon or even aristotle. If this is the case I say we allow this girl to blossom her already insane high IQ and make her ascend beyond what humanity can offer to her.


Digits don't lie.


I was simply showing the truth to the world. If God wishes to smile upon me and grant me good luck then I say let him.

I figure we'll start with episode 1 and go on for as long as we can.
Starts in 15 minutes.

>BH is OVA
I'm aware of that now, but was describing my reception at the time. My point is that while FMA was enjoyable, BH is evidently superior by my estimation, and that was evident even when I was new to anime.
A number of animes have done that, where amidst the popularity of the manga they'll license a spinoff-ish story based on the series, when people really just want the series.


I've only seen like the first two episodes of the original and all of BH. I didn't feel like the opening was rushed.
The rushed feeling might be because the original was slower, so you compare it to that.
"The FMA animation was created before the manga was finished, so the animators had to create their own story once they crossed a certain point since they weren't privy to how the manga's story would conclude."
And this is why anime shouldn't be created until the artist's workspeed is proven to be fast and steady.
Either they make up their own shitty story, or they just insert filler CONSTANTLY like Bleach and kill their own anime.
If a manga artist is consistent with their pace, and they make chapters at a rate that an anime can progress at nicely then it's fine.
Too many anime jump the gun and rush into things when there isn't enough data to know if the anime will "catch up" to the manga or not.


I watched it when it was fresh and fell in love with it.

A couple of years late they do a what I expected to be remake of a 10/10 series.
I was weird to have a different show. A different Greed in a different style a new story and new characters.
Plus all the heart-wrenching moments were changed.

It was just weird because it had to be measured against a 10/10 and was very different.

I watched the whole show but every other episode I asked myself "wait wasn't that different? what is going on? you remember this differently!"

completed and it was good but because I had all these images from FMA in my mind it was kind of weird


Very understandable. It's like playing a game series where they use the same character news every time but different personalities.
"This isn't the waifu I remember!"
Even if it's good, it's weird because you can't get over the original characters/story you were introduced to.


Same character names. God damn I need to wake up.
