Post in this thread every time you visit /a/
Post here every time you finish an anime/manga
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.
Cancer Weeb Music
Post the weebiest shit you've got.
I'm not gay I just appreciate anime without fucking annoying femoids
How right wing is this board? Giving the benefit of the doubt and presuming it's quietly natsoc. A lot of people see The Greatest Story Never Told and ride the emotional high thinking they have a full understanding of the 2nd European civil war. You should understand that there was a more important spiritual theory that was internal to national socialism, explained in the book The Myth of the 20th Century. This is the real importance of national socialism. Whereas modern heresy views religion as an individual's journey, the truth is cooperation is a central necessity for actualizing spiritual values. These values are expressable only by the people with the biology to perceive and express it correctly, leading to the concept of the race soul.

Fumo Thread: Day of the Fumo Edition
Where can I find the english sub to the final evangelion movie? I can't wait and the japs/jews aren't making it readily obvious for me.
any animus liek dis uwu niqqua sheeeit
The Naruto thread, for Naruto discussion. You can talk about what you like/dislike about the show, your favourite character, your least favourite retcon, and anything else you want.
To get this started I think I'll talk about my least favourite retcon in the series.
When the story first started, Naruto Uzumaki was a nobody.
And an orphan who lives alone in a shitty apartment.
Dead-last in his ninja school, considered a failure by damn near everyone who knew him, hated for a reason he didn't know, he resorted to pranking people and vandalizing the Ninja Mount Rushmore monument in Konoha (The Hidden Leaf Village) for attention. Only one teacher liked him.
He wants to be Hokage (Ninja President) but at first nobody thinks he'll make it.
To make matters worse, this is a setting where things just aren't fair. Some people are born with more talent than others. There are people out there younger than Naruto with more talent than his Ninja senseis. Some people are legitimately threatened by caltrops and ninja knives, and some people are demigods who explode mountains by looking at them and effortlessly survive taking island-destroying explosions to the face.
Some people are born with Kekkei Genkais (Bloodline Limits), a genetic mutation that improves their body or lets them use a certain element nobody else can use. In a world where it takes a long time to learn one Fire/Water/Earth/Wind/Lightning spell and having two elements is considered a sign that you're epic, these people get an extra element on top like Magnetism or Lava. Or lets them use a combo-element like Ice which is a combination of wind and water magic, granting them incredible talent in both elements and the ability to perform ninja hand-seals one-handed. Or a unique evolutionary advantage like white eyes with X-ray vision that see in a 360-degree sphere for miles and let you see the body's chakra points, or bullshit purple god-eyes, or red and black eyes that see faster and gradually unlock increasingly bullshit powers like improve your reflexes, spit magical black fire so hot it burns regular fire and can only be extinguished by sealing magic, trap people in a torture illusion that lasts ages for the victim but a second in reality, make a big fucking gundam out of magic, shit on causality to "turn your wounds into illusions" for six seconds at the cost of your sight in that eye, create a mental time loop for someone until they give up, and get some bullshit power unique to the individual like the ability to mind-control anyone or displace matter or get really really good control of the black fire.
Some people are born with power and immense talent, and some people are nobodies like Naruto.
He did have The Nine-Tailed Fox sealed inside him as a baby, which is an evil demon who hates humanity and wants to be free. But he's not on Naruto's side, and whenever Naruto gets pissed the fox tries to escape.
Naruto was considered a loser by everyone who knew him, and he was a loudmouthed knuckleheaded brat. And yet, he had potential. Once someone told him to do it, he was able to sneak into the Hokage's (Ninja President's) tower, steal the Forbidden Scroll, and learn one technique from it that would quickly become his signature move: The Shadow Clone Jutsu. He saved the life of the teacher that liked him.
He was assigned to a team that hated him at first, getting stuck with the lazy genius Kakashi Hatake, the "grumpy on the outside, kind on the inside" (at first) Sasuke Uchiha, and the shit Sakura Haruno.
The author Kishimoto wanted Sakura to be a normal girl to contrast the stronger and more interesting characters in her team. This was a really stupid move, as Sakura's the least interesting/funny/likable female character in a show where females are already usually uninteresting/unfunny/unlikable, making the rare good females stand out.
Naruto had the odds stacked against him for all of the show, when it was good. He was a nobody who worked hard, and proved to the world he can improve even if they've written him off as a "dead-last loser for life". He beats some fatalist guy who says "People cannot change their destiny" and it's epic. He defeats many foes destined to be stronger than him by working his ass off.
And then, near the end of the tale, the author decides to retcon Naruto's parentage.
Suddenly, Naruto was always some fucking Crusader Kings god-baby with two of the greatest parents possible. His dad turned out to be The Yellow Flash Minato Namikaze, The Fourth Hokage. And his mom was Kushina Uzumaki, a previous Jinchuriki for the Nine-Tails. Their family tree's full of previous Hokage and super-powerful/important people, and Naruto is not only directly related to The Sage Of Six Paths (mythical Ninja Jesus), he is also the reincarnation of the good son of the Sage of Six Paths who's destined to get strong and battle the reincarnation of the evil son. Naruto always had it easier than those with worse parentage.
The final powerups necessary to defeat the final bosses don't come from the people of the Ninja world training hard and using great teamwork and strategy to overcome overwhelming odds. It's handed to them by deus ex machina ninja jesus spirits.
This really detracts from all the "Fuck destiny!" shit the story's said until now.
The Promised Neverland
So...there's this animu that's seems to be trending right now where there's literal human farms to feed childr*n to literal demons.
There's no much talk about it on 4chins, not working for me right now, but i managed to get something from the google preview, apparently a lot of its main Discord servers are allowing full chatter about the JQ AND the propostreous [email protected] conspiracy theory, i'll advice to avoid using Discord at all tho.
Is anyone here into this series/familiar with the card game?
I played it solo as a kid, never had a face-to-face duel in my life. I quit around the 5Ds era so my old deck's completely outdated.
Fanfiction Containment Thread - Or How I Learnt to Stop Sperging and Worship Trash
So here you post your fanfiction of chinese cartoons if you have any. The rules for posting are the following: 1) Avatar: The Last Airbender is an anime. 2) Panty and Stocking is a cartoon. 3) The tier-list for animes goes as follows: Eromanga-sensei>Mad Bull 34>Sword Art Online> Garcy's wings>>>>>>Death Note.
WAIFU TIER THREAD
ITT: Post Waifus and Waifu tier grills because you can only have one and I have nothing better to do.
What would American Anime be?
An odd discussion topic, but considering how most Shonen anime are intertwined with Japanese culture, what do you think an American anime would look like?
Not just western cartoon that copies the Japanese art style and assorted asian themes/symbolism/spirituality like Avatar, but a purely American thing that looks Japanese but still kept the American sensibilities.
It's not just hilarious and pretty hot sometimes, it's also redpilled!
Government intervention and "anti-racism" do more harm than good in this series.
Like the "no fucking your monster-girl homestay" law that gets in the way of the show's loving relationships fucking
and the "Monster and human can't legally hurt each other" law that means a gang of human rapists can grope a centaur girl all they want, she'll be in trouble if she kicks them away and runs away, and a human will be needed to save her.
It also acknowledges the fact that there are fundamental differences between races that means they should get and require different treatments.
Sometimes dumb fucking Orcs will break into a manga shop and take hostages, and it will be necessary to put them down like mad dogs. And if the govt says humans and monsters can't harm each other and only monster can harm monster, that means a squad of monsters allowed to kill led by a human will be needed to do the deed.
If you're going to have a Mermaid with you, she will need a swimming pool to live in. A mermaid girl will never be a professional sprinter.
Sometimes a Slime Girl is going to feed on a woman's fluids and if that feels like molestation to you, that's on you.
The thing that makes the government worker character, Agent Smith, a good guy? She usually knows when to turn her head and look the other way, like she did when Suu was introduced and she said "fuck it i'm too busy to admit i just discovered a new monster species, if anyone asks she doesn't legally exist"
It's not extremely redpilled, and I find myself wondering where all this cash to make swimming pools and house expansions comes from (monster lands, hopefully) but it's still a nice change of pace.
Katawa Shoujo anime when?
Aggretsuko is my favorite anime.
Is This Board A Failure?

NepNep/Nepboo/Neppu containment thread.
All Neptunia postings are to be contained here.
Anyone feeding the Neppu fag will be shot.
The bad joke from the old days of CS soundboarding is not to leave or it will be shot.
This is your only warning.
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.
How fucking cool would it be to have a chess anime? No magic or anything, just some high school nerds kicking each other's asses at the best game that has ever existed.

Kyouto Animation burned down
at least 33 people dead, many of them Artists.
Many more maimed.5 works have been destroyed beyond recovered, all manuscripts were destroyed in the fire.>11 minute video by Mr. Obvious.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv86I623zwgKyouto Animation, a famous and beloved japanese Anime studio responsible for works like K-On!, the melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and contracts works for Ghibli, has been destroyed by a fire on Thursday, July 18th 2019.
41 year old male arsonists sets Studio ablaze because "they ruined his favourite anime".
As of the writing of this post the suspect is alive, being held in a hospital for burn wounds.
this is about as close to murder of not only real people and invaluable amounts of work, but also genocide of anime girls as it gets. I dont know if Japan has a death penalty. but this would certainly warrant a case.
What's your favorite anime /a/?
Sad Panda Is dead.
>/h/ Sticky with 1000 replieshttp://archive.fo/NpBoJ+ + + Sad Panda, One of the biggest Hentai Sites on the Internet with a 20 year history is shutting down+ + +
after a legislation change in the hosting country of the Netherlands.
No official statement has been made by the company or the server providers as of yet.The head admin has given up and surrenders to the authorities,
burning the whole place down due to the hosted loli & shota pictures.
Screencap assembly of one of the insiders. This whole shutdown would have gone on in silence would it not have been for people like him.as of the writing of this post, most of the content is already gone and the site mostly shut down
This is a decisive blow against Western Hentai hosting and Reposting services and will in all likelihood lead to the shut down of other sites in the coming weeks. One of them possibly being N-Hentai
, A Doujin reupload data base.
4chan*s Hentai board (among other communities) had undertaken last minute emergency measures to save as much content as humanly possibly. but given the short time window of 12 hours this had to take place in, it can be assumed that many portions of the double digits gigabytes of content have been lost forever to the aether. Decades worth of the lifes work of some of the most talented Hentai artists on the planet.
I have personally never used Sad Panda myself but considering how Influential and old this site was, this is a dark day for Porn on the Internet and the ever shrinking Freedom of Expression on the Internet.The content creators of MLPOL wish Sad Pandas people a swift recovery and good fortune in finding a new home for their passion.

The animes on the list are compared to eachother. Even the ones in the 1-tier have things I like and I know there are flaws in Death Note. Some are higher up for subjective reasons not just quality.

Kemono Friends: A Friend-ly Thread
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?
Never trust 8/chan/, never trust 8/pone/.
Does /mlp/ like anime?
I started my first anime "Naruto" and it's a blast!
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?
anime that did things to you
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?
/mlpol/ Anime Night
Rozen Maiden has won anime night! Tuesday at 6pm PST we will watch 4 Episodes a night! I will be posting the rabbit link Tuesday before the show!
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?
Ghibli General Thread
Since we finally have an /a/ board, might as well have a ghibli thread. Post Ghibli Music, pictures, and discuss all things Ghibli!

Mushishi and mature animes.
I need to see more mature anime that doesn't end with some kid blowing up entire cities in a fight with some bad guy. Not knociking that stuff, time and place for everything. Anyone know any anime that just tell good stories while being a little more level headed?
If you haven't seen mushishi I recommend
it because it's just chilled out ghost tales that are solved by a roaming sort of shamen. The music and artwork displayed is also beautiful.
Anyone else a fan of Rumiko Takahashi? Back in the early 2000s when Inuyasha was rabidly popular there was a lot of discussion of her, but you don't really hear as much about her these days. I get the impression a lot of younger fans aren't as familiar with her. She's known for doing extremely long-running stories that usually focus on romance and comedy, with the exception of Inuyasha and Mermaid Saga, which are somewhat darker works. In Japan she is regarded as one of the most significant manga authors in history.
Notable works include:
Currently running one is Rin-ne, which I am ridiculously far behind on.
Try to lose to this anime character
So here is the rules use this shitty site and get a power and then justify how you would lose to the character in the image. Your opponent will be gohan. You get 5 separate superpowers using this site. Also no cheating so if you get 4 crappy superpowers and you get an OP power. You have to use all 5 powers during the fight and no copping out with I won't use this 1 OP ability.
Can you discuss VNs on this board? Or are you supposed to discuss that on /vx/?

A thread dedicated to one of the most brilliant japanese Anime and Hentai Artists known to me, Hetza Hellshock
. If you spend any time on a right leaning anime board, you have probably seen artwork from him. Hetza is Famous for his Dark coloring, military drawings, Pin UPs and gore.
This thread will include SFW and NSFW artwork from my personal Hellshock folder, who I made in 2016. I may or may not add additional works later on. Feel free to contribute if you possess picture of this artist yourself.
