So im about to start watching Another and I was wondering if i should watch episode 0 first because some shows have those episodes for later on in the series. right?
User avatar #819467 to #819460 - yusay ONLINE (11/13/2013) [-]
Episode 0 is just a special.

Also don't expect any way to solve the mystery.
User avatar #819463 to #819460 - jakeandhistoe (11/13/2013) [-]
Save it for after the series.
User avatar #819462 to #819460 - makotoitou (11/13/2013) [-]
Don't. Another is suppose to be a mystery and episode 0 is basically a wrap up.

Hey guys I have this memory of these two anime's I seen a long time ago.
One ended with I think a battle on a castle roof, and then the characters drove away talking in a car, happy. It was day time/ evening.
And the other one was a scene where a young boy is looking for his dad or something and then in the end his dad covers the boy with his body to save him from falling debris and he dies.
I know this isn't very descriptive, sorry.
#819450 to #819424 - anonymous (11/12/2013) [-]
Honestly, the first one sounds like Monty Python's The Holy Grail
#819448 to #819424 - varuna (11/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, I'm pretty sure it is Rave Master.

Second one I think is Heroman.
User avatar #819438 to #819435 - djbagboy (11/12/2013) [-]
I don't think so, I watched it when I was a lot younger. But thank you
User avatar #819439 to #819438 - varuna (11/12/2013) [-]
How much younger would help..
User avatar #819440 to #819439 - djbagboy (11/12/2013) [-]
I can't place an age. But early 2000's. Before 2006 I know.
I think both of the anime's were of an older style, somewhat like Cowbot Bebop. But not that old.

Is the first Gintama?
User avatar #819459 to #819427 - yeorgh (11/13/2013) [-]
No.
User avatar #819431 to #819427 - djbagboy (11/12/2013) [-]
I saw that scene a long time ago. Over 5 or so years. I don't think it was Gintama, but it may be.
And I think the second one might be Hunter X Hunter. Am I right?
User avatar #819480 to #819431 - jettom ONLINE (11/13/2013) [-]
Second one is certainly NOT Hunter x Hunter as he has yet to find his father.
User avatar #819433 to #819431 - yusay ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Gintama started airing in 2006.

I haven't watched k-on yet but keep seeing it everywhere. is it that good?
User avatar #819701 to #819415 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/13/2013) [-]
I don't think so. It's "cute girls doing cute things" at its best/worst (depending on your perspective) without any substance or story behind it. The animation is well done, but that's about it.
User avatar #819469 to #819415 - funkyspot (11/13/2013) [-]
In my memory it's just a blurry mess of plotless cute animated girls eating cake and barely playing any music, and while in theory I should have hated it, I enjoyed it...
Would never watch it again though
I'd recommenced watching an episode online to see if it either drives you crazy or tickles your fuzzy part of the brain
#819447 to #819415 - bababadsheep (11/12/2013) [-]
Read the 4koma on your mobile device. It will take less time, plus the story goes farther as far as I know.    
   
And you control the pacing of cute girls doing cute things. But the music is pretty good catchy, so maybe you should watch it instead.

Watch this for 22 minutes. That's a pretty accurate summary of an episode of K-On. It's not bad by any means (I watched an entire season of it) but it sure as hell ain't good either.

training, dancing, singing, moe, thighs.
User avatar #819312 to #819307 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
Training, dancing, singing.

That's about it.

I gotta say, that sounds like hell.
User avatar #819317 to #819316 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
I'd say unless you actually like the characters, or the songs, then you probably won't enjoy it.
User avatar #819322 to #819317 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
Well, at least they actually sing.
User avatar #819323 to #819322 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
That's why I enjoyed Love Live.

Plus, the tsundere pianist was best girl.

>best girl
>not nico nico
User avatar #819352 to #819344 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
Nico Nico is black right?
She's the main reason I want to watch it. She looks like a sadist, from the picture I saw of her at least.
User avatar #819356 to #819352 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
ye, she's the best.
User avatar #819324 to #819323 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
The blonde one is the tsundere, isn't she?
#819340 to #819324 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
I mean this beauty.

I believe the blonde was tsundere as well.
#819345 to #819340 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
Awesome, black is still the main reason I'm watching it though.
#819377 to #819345 - synthuz **User deleted account** (11/12/2013) [-]
She looks pretty good from the pictures I've seen from her
User avatar #819314 to #819312 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
Just add in the respecting amount of drama, comedy, romance, and whatever other genres they want into those three points.
User avatar #819310 to #819307 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
Nvm I'll figure that out tomorrow.

User avatar #819294 to #819285 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
"surge"
User avatar #819296 to #819294 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
I'm confused.

Are you mocking the spelling or the usage?
User avatar #819297 to #819296 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
the usage
User avatar #819299 to #819297 - communistlover (11/12/2013) [-]
Alright, care to explain?
User avatar #819303 to #819299 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
there are 2 idol shows this season, the last 2 seasons didn't have any. 2 shows in 3 seasons is hardly a "surge".
User avatar #819302 to #819299 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
It's not a surge is what he means, it's been going on for a while.
User avatar #819306 to #819302 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
it hardy has, idol shows have always been and still are extremely infrequent. they do sell good though.
User avatar #819320 to #819306 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
This season has two, summer had none, spring had two, winter last season had three.
User avatar #819328 to #819320 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
every season has 30 shows nowadays, they are still infrequent by comparison.
User avatar #819330 to #819328 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
It's still a lot more than it used to be.
User avatar #819335 to #819330 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
there's a lot more anime than there used to be, idols isn't the rising star among the genre, there aren't any.
User avatar #819338 to #819335 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
That's because you can't pump out idol shit out of nowhere as fast as you can just adapt a LN or a manga.
User avatar #819342 to #819338 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
glad that we can agree on that.

yes, I know free! broke the manebi line, but when episode 6 of jut got released it was still under the manabi line by a huge margin, around 500 preorders IIRC, yet look were it is now. What I'm trying to say is that we won't know how well it's selling until the actual BD release.
User avatar #819350 to #819347 - alleksi ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
The Amazon preorder figures are looking fucking terrible, and those are a fairly good indicative of how a show does. Last time I checked it was doing worse than Nichijou.

By this time Free! had really good preorder figures.
User avatar #819353 to #819350 - thekame (11/12/2013) [-]
I haven't been paying attention this season, but IIRC, free! was still below a 1000 preorders at this point.
User avatar #819408 to #819353 - yusay ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
It was. I remember I only heard of it skyrocketing around episode 8 or 9.
User avatar #819326 to #819318 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
That's what happens when you try to do something you're bad at, and i bet the sales went up after that last episode, and with how much Free! sold they can afford to fuck up once or twice to test what they can and can't do to sell.
User avatar #819279 to #819276 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
Making shit and making money aren't mutually exclusive endeavors in Japan.

KyoAni is an expert at doing both.
User avatar #819284 to #819282 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]

Free was a light novel submitted for a KyoAni competition, same as this, but Free wasn't a spinoff nor based on a short. It's just some shorts.

And when they see the popularity it'll have (and it will be popular because the japs eat idol shit) they'll make their own since it's what it sells right now, and then they'll move on to doing fujoshit idol shit.

Hell they tried to go dark action like Monogatari but that blew up in their face since they suck dick at action now so they changed tactics.

User avatar #819289 to #819281 - alleksi ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Mostly theirs. I think they're trying to pump out as much anime as possible in order to stay relevant, though I don't mind it if KnK is going to end up being less serious from now on considering that's what they do better. and I wouldn't say that they can't do action, the action is fine, the story is shit.

I'm pretty sure it's gonna stay the way it is, but I'd pick it up if I were you. It's apparently going to stay like Ookiku was (I never saw it so I could be speaking out of my ass.)

I've played baseball most of my life so I'm an avid fan, seen almost all the baseball anime there is (with the exception of Princess Nine, never watching that shit.) As for MMA it seems they only care about boxing and the only franchise sticking is Ippo.
#819246 to #819243 - yusay ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Like I'll ever get to Ippo soon...

Never seen Ookiku either.

Baseball, boxing and MMA are probably my favorite sports so it's disappointing to see little anime on them. I should get to some of the baseball anime out there though like One Outs.

How good is Ace of Diamond then?
User avatar #819265 to #819246 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
There's not even that many MMA manga, i've seen like three that actually focus on the MMA and they're not that popular.
User avatar #819252 to #819246 - nippuhl (11/12/2013) [-]
I only got motivated because it was airing this fall, so I started it 2 weeks before Rising. Honestly the hypest shit and it motivates you a ton. I actually got off my ass and started running and doing exercises.

As far as I can tell, for baseball One Outs is a one of a kind. If you want a serious one go for Major.

It's pretty good. You have your overzealous MC who wants to be, as the title says, the ace of the diamond. There has been literally no plot progression and we're 6 episodes in but it's still fun as fuck. Also douchey coach makes for funnier scenes tbh

Dunno what the last 2 are but AP is a bitch. Luckily I'm only in 2 honors classes so I still have a lot of time for anime outside of hobbies.
User avatar #819278 to #819270 - yusay ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
AICE is like AP but instead of giving you busy work so they can call the class hard they train you for your exam and what you'll need after you're out of the class. Academy is a program and I'm in the Engineering Academy. Tons of projects.

I only watch anime at night, anyway, so that is a limiting factor for me.

Hi. I finished Haibane Renmei a week ago. I thought that it was great. The great part of it was that it didn't try to become too deep with its philosophical themes, which then left room for the great characters.
What are your takes on the show? Do you have any interpretation of it? If you don't, then do you have any thoughts on what some of the things in it symbolise? Like what are Haibane, village, the walls, etc.
User avatar #819274 to #819142 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
I didn't think I'd like it, but I ended up falling in love with the show and several of the characters and the end actually made me tear up. My favorite SOL by far, though that's not much of an accomplishment since I hate the genre.

In my opinion the story is about letting go and moving on, and that not doing so only hurts yourself in the end.
#819361 to #819274 - anonymous (11/12/2013) [-]
I didn't think I'd like it either. I initially thought that it would just be about the world, and how they would get over the wall, but I was so wrong. The characters and mood really reel you in with them. I can't praise this anime enough, prior to watching this I had seen so much rubbish that I was kinda tired of anime, but it showed exactly what's so great about anime.
I'm kinda sad that not many people have seen it.

I think your interpretation is spot on. It's especially so, because Rakka did that, when she moved on when the first Haibane(can't remember her name) took the flight, thus getting out of the circle of sin.
User avatar #819383 to #819361 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
I'll admit that prior to episode 6 I was really stalling on the show and was dangerously close to dropping it because I didn't see a point to what was going on, but I am tremendously glad that I stuck it out. My guess is that a lot of people don't see it because it's too "out there" or "hipster" for them, and the few that do start it may find it not to their liking initially.

I'm glad we agree. I've also heard that it's an allegory for death, but I felt like that was taking the story a little to literally.
#819397 to #819383 - anonymous (11/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, I guess that it could seem to be hipster-esque. I hope this thread gives other here the incentives to watch it.

I don't think death exactly, but more like the Christian(or other religion) afterlife. It's implied that both Rakka and Rekka killed themselves (Rakka by jumping off somewhere and Rekka in front of a train) , which is considered a sin in Christianity. This would explain why they're sinbound/blackwings. The village then serves like a purgatory, so they can get their salvation and go to heaven. This is just the rough sketch, the anime doesn't explain anything, so it can be interpreted in many ways, this also makes it so good.
User avatar #819148 to #819142 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
I like it. It's fantasy and SoL, two of my favourite genres. I havn't analyzed it too much and just took the story for what it was. It's really my kind of fantasy so that was all I needed, really.
I guess it's a story about leaving home, or something. I thought much more about it when I was actually watching it but I forgot all about it now.

#819171 to #819148 - anonymous (11/12/2013) [-]
I'm glad to hear to you liked it, too bad that it doesn't get much attention.
I think that it's much more than just leaving home and becoming an adult, the creator behind it also worked on Lain and Texnolyze, so there's that. I've heard a lot about Lain, that it's deep just for the sake of being deep, I don't get that feeling at all watching Haibane.

For me, I think the story has something religious afterlife over it, which the cocoon symbolises.
User avatar #819175 to #819171 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
I wouldn't know, I'm just a dumb kid who doesn't look too deeply into stuff (exceptions happen). All I know is I had some decent thoughts on it all while I was watching it.
#819182 to #819175 - anonymous (11/12/2013) [-]
Arg, don't say that. I think one of its great parts is that no one is required to look to much into it to understand what is going on. I was just so intrigued by it that I searched on the net to research some of it.
User avatar #819161 to #819148 - kninee (11/12/2013) [-]
I was loving it, 10/10 and easily in my top 5.

Both Endings are really good actually. Especially after you finish the series, the music just gives you a sweet feeling in your heart. Sadly, because Erin is so long, the music does become a tiny bit repetitive as you keep going, but if you like it that much anyway, it's not a problem.

Just got around to finishing Yokazura's newest episode.

This show is easily taking place as this seasons favorite for me. The sound quality is a pretty strong factor, but I'm really liking the abilities of all the characters.

ITT: What are your thoughts on Yokazura Quartet Hana no Uta?

ITT: Favorite anime of this season?
User avatar #819288 to #819127 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]

Monogatari if that counts, and Kyousogiga if it doesn't.

"Muh" = a corruption of the word "my".æ
"Ani-ken" = The anime club Onoda kept going on about, which might be spelled incorrectly.
User avatar #819223 to #819127 - yusay ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Really fun. Keeps this up and it's an 8/10 from me. Love the character designs, animation, and sound, plus the actual characters are interesting. I hope it gets a second or third season because 12 episodes is just too little.

Kyousogiga is my AOTS because it's so heartwarming.
#819187 to #819127 - senjougahara (11/12/2013) [-]
I like it. Has some really nice animation as well. Though It feels rushed. Maybe its just me but there seems to be a lot going on in the last couple of episodes, with little explanation behind it. Still, not a big deal, wont stop me from enjoying it.

And for personal AOTS, Kyousogiga for me.

#819313 to #819123 - leutdan (11/12/2013) [-]
honestly the part i found saddest was the one where tomoya and ushio were hugging it out in the flower fields cus it reminded me of what a caring dad i have, so yeah and akio was probably the best character in my opinion

I didn't exactly find that part sad but it was pretty nice.
User avatar #819339 to #819333 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Most of the "sad" scenes just didn't work with me because they seemed overly forced. By that I mean the drama felt like it was only there for the sake of being drama rather then because it wanted to go anywhere with it. It was only really Nagisa's death I thought went somewhere because then we got to see Tomoya being all depressed and a shitty father.
User avatar #819360 to #819339 - leutdan (11/12/2013) [-]
at least it had comedy
User avatar #819363 to #819360 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Which I thought got boring after a while. I mean, yeah, seeing Sunohara getting punched in the face is funny, but I felt the comedy of the show relied on him being the butt-monkey alone.
User avatar #819364 to #819363 - leutdan (11/12/2013) [-]
well to each his own
User avatar #819368 to #819364 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]
Yep. I did like the slice of life and romance elements though. Once it got over the harem phase and just focused on Tomoya and Nagisa's relationship it was really good.

I come on /anime/ to talk about anime. Not having a bunch of people spamming "weeaboo faggots", "rcmd anmu plz", "angel beats 10/10", or other annoying ass shit that bronies usually barf up.

What would a mod do here?

Can a mod ban obvious shitposters/raiders/spammers?

raiders including, not only those who partake in the spamming, but also those who just come here and spectate and write the occasional "lol epic" comment, and those who link the threads to other boards, thus inviting more people.

shitposters including obvious shit like "why is DBZ the most hated anime", "is x anime" (in most cases), and tangentially anime/manga related topics such as "a girl I know watches anime should I fuk her" etc.

can a mod make a sticky?

if the answer to all, or most ,of those is no, then this place doesn't need a mod as it wouldn't serve a purpose and would only attract more negative attention.
User avatar #819134 to #819128 - johndapro (11/12/2013) [-]
The answer is no to all of those except for flagging spammers.
User avatar #819135 to #819134 - lawuser ONLINE (11/12/2013) [-]

User avatar #819141 to #819135 - johndapro (11/12/2013) [-]
Yeah It's hard to say what's spam and what is just shitposting.

I'm thinking of actually asking Admin to let us mods to ban shitposters who are really fucking around on the boards. But I am pretty sure he will say no.

It's a bit sad, I personally like when the boards are allowed to talk about their topic in peace.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

I don’t give a fuck how many reps you have or how tough you are IRL, how well you can fight, or how many fucking guns you own to protect yourself. I’ll fucking show up at your house when you aren’t home. I’ll turn all the lights on in your house, leave all the water running, open your fridge door and not close it, and turn your gas stove burners on and let them waste gas. You’re going to start stressing the fuck out, your blood pressure will triple, and you’ll have a fucking heart attack. You’ll go to the hospital for a heart operation, and the last thing you’ll see when you’re being put under in the operating room is me hovering above you, dressed like a doctor. When you wake up after being operated on, wondering what ticking time bomb is in your chest waiting to go off. You’ll recover fully from your heart surgery. And when you walk out the front door of the hospital to go home I’ll run you over with my fucking car out of no where and kill you. I just want you to know how easily I could fucking destroy your pathetic excuse of a life, but how I’d rather go to a great fuckng length to make sure your last remaining days are spent in a living, breathing fucking hell. It’s too late to save yourself, but don’t bother committing suicide either… I’ll fucking resuscitate you and kill you again myself you bitch-faced phaggot. Welcome to hell, population: you

#819095 to #819073 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
I'd be interested. In spite of my boredom induced assholery I am good at being impartial when the occasion calls for it, even when I greatly dislike someone. I'm online 6am to 7:40am and 3 or 4pm to 10pm Mountain Time Zone (UTC-07:00) most nights. Weekends may have longer hours, but don't count on it. I can't give a gauge of how capable I would be at being a mod since I've never done it before, but most of the jobs I've held have held a lot of responsibility over other people that required level headed decisions, so I think I could handle it fairly easily.

If I've shit the bed on my chances, which wouldn't surprise me, then there are a couple of other regulars who might be good mods, but I have no idea if they would want the responsibility so I don't know if I should list them.

You may also want to post this on the anime social board since some of those users don't frequent /anime/ much anymore.

Any manga you currently keep up with that's still publishing? Do you enjoy waiting for weekly/monthly/random updates or do you prefer to start a series when it's ending?

Only reading Natsume's book of Friends at the moment. I prefer reading finished manga, because then I can read it at my own pace, if it's the other way around I can forget about it and never look at it again.

I prefer manga that's already finished, because I can read it all relatively quickly, because if I don't finish it all at once I'll forget about it.

Ao no Exorcist and Shingeki no Kyojin, there's a few others I just stopped reading and i'm starting some new ones, but I don't know how often or when they come out. I like it when a series is ended or near the end, so I can just read it all without waiting.

Yotsuba&! (I wait patiently for each ~monthly update)

I read Black Lagoon and something Iris or whatever the title was while it was updating, then both went on fucking retarded hiatuses and I can't be bothered to pick them up again.

I prefer to read manga that are done so I can finish it.

You mean iris zero? Yeah, it was a fucking long hiatus, but I'm glad it's finally updating again.
User avatar #819044 to #819043 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
Yeah, that's the one. I liked it a lot, but I forgot just about everything and don't really want to reread the whole thing to catch back up.
User avatar #819038 to #819036 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
Both are already out of hiatus though.
User avatar #819040 to #819038 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
I know, hence the "I can't be bothered to pick them up again".
User avatar #819041 to #819040 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
Oh, right right, well it could be worse, you could be reading Berserk.
User avatar #819042 to #819041 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
Hasn't it only been on hiatus for like a year?
User avatar #819045 to #819042 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
"only"

Yeah, almost a year now though before that it went on hiatus for like 5 months, it hasn't had a stable several years now.
User avatar #819048 to #819045 - nigeltheoutlaw (11/12/2013) [-]
Oh, well I guess sporadic updates can be better or worse than a long hiatus depending on how you feel about it.
User avatar #819050 to #819048 - yeorgh (11/12/2013) [-]
If a year isn't a long hiatus, what do you consider a long hiatus?
