Kou's was better in that it demonstrated the idea of the game much better than Aoba's did. For some reason though Kou's looked messier in the anime than it did in the manga.



The bath scene had no lewdness. It was the typical groping joke scene without showing anything.

And S1 had a few, brilliantly animated lewd, or just nice shots accentuating Aoba's butt.



Maybe i should stop being a secondary. Is the manga worth the time it takes to read?


Aoba does have a nice behind.



The chapters are pretty short, so reading all of it doesn't take that long.

Manga is usually the first thing people recommend to practice Japanese obviously but I haven't read that many recommendations for games. Pokemon gets labelled as "kana soup" based on all the pokemon and moves that are spelled in katakana so if you want to get your hands on an emulation it would be relatively easy. I think Phoenix Wright would be a good idea considering how text-heavy the game is but I haven't played it so I'm really just throwing it out there. For VN which counts as games then Hana Hira is recommended and its really easy to find a Japanese download.

Practicing your Japanese comes down to consistency so whether its games,mangas, VNs or LNs, find something that interests you so you keep reading and practicing.

Also /v/ has a Learning Nipponese thread so you could try asking there for game recommendations

One of my friends got a JP version of Dragons Crown on PSP to git gud in Nihongo.


I wanted to surprise /a/ with something and I don't want to spoil it, but I'm hitting a roadblock here.

A knight from the middle ages has lost his sword. He also asks:





From this I get: "Come to think of it, I also wonder where my trusty steed's basashi went." I know that basashi is horse sashimi, and he immediately gets tsukkomi'd with "バサシ!!!" so it seems like they have two different ideas over what that means, the latter being horse meat and the former being something else. I see some fishing blogs that mention catching a バサシ but I don't think that's what he's referring to.



It's the horse's name.



Guess I kinda overthought that one. Thank you.

> the older one felt more alive

Few reasons I think

-Even though you got less frames with older animation, the frames you got were of higher quality. The brain is very good at filling in missing information but very bad at filtering out bad information. A lower frame count with proper positioning, that allows the brain to stitch together an illusion of natural movement, is infinitely more pleasing than a hodgepodge of ultra fluid poorly animated movements.

-Older animation had grain and an imperfectness that is inherit to things that are hand drawn. We live in an imperfect world with imperfect textures and patterns. The grain and imperfections in hand drawn works are more akin to what we see in nature, whereas the flawlessness of digital animation tends to give off an unnatural/artificial sheen. This is also true in my experience with traditionally draw vs digitally drawn manga.

Also almost seems like a westernization of animation. This could partly be a conflict of eastern vs western ideologies. Where western culture is enamored with brilliance and shine and cleanliness, traditional eastern culture much more embraces the soft organic quality of dirt and grime and imperfections in their works. In Praise of Shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki is a good book explaining this.




>Older animation had grain and an imperfectness that is inherit to things that are hand drawn. We live in an imperfect world with imperfect textures and patterns. The grain and imperfections in hand drawn works are more akin to what we see in nature, whereas the flawlessness of digital animation tends to give off an unnatural/artificial sheen. This is also true in my experience with traditionally draw vs digitally drawn manga.

It wasn't imperfections, so much as it is the natural texture of the actual, tangible materials - the ink, the paint, the film with its wonderful grain - that gave this sense or something organic, something raw and living and real. Compare the old Hokuto no Ken series to the more recent digitally animated OVAs. Old, traditional episodes of the series had this textured, gritty look. The world really seemed post apocalyptic, gruff characters drawn and painted gruffly, giving more a sense of detail, texture, solidity to everything.

The more recent OVAs by contrast don't seem to take place in a gritty post apocalyptic world. The paintings of the backgrounds is more flat, more sterile. Sterility is the default in digital animation, art. While it certainly is possibly to overcome it, and create works that have real grit and feel to them, it takes more effort. Maybe one day the technology will exist that allows perfect emulation of the older, more textured look. We don't seem to be there yet, alas.

I just wish animators would go back to using the darker, desaturated color palettes that were more common before the digital age. Not necessarily exclusively, but more often than not. Darker pallets are especially rare these days, I was pleasantly surprised to see Wixoss S1 had such deep and lovely darkness in some scenes, which is sadly absent in more recent animes.

Only if you support 3d anime. I've seen where this goes as I live in the UK, where 99% of animated programs have been raped by 3d computer animation (pic related).

Do not support it or anime will be ruined forever.

Mark my fucking words


I mean, it looks "good" but it's almost in an uncanny valley of trying to apear 2D. I miss my hand drawn shit of old.


tru dat. Some how, though, I find digitally drawn moe trash to still be more or less similarly endearing, at least when it's animated.


>End of 2d

Better not. I already focus on a backlog for books, movies, and everything else. I don't want anime to get so bad that I only have my backlog left.

You know, if Kinnikuman does go on to not get an anime, at least it will have had an 6 year long manga spanning 28+ volumes.

I feel like demon Vignette is type to be into the badboy deliquent with a good heart, sort of like Kuraudo in Failed knight, it will be even simpler for Gabi, his one will be pervert who makes her wear cosplay for fact he pays all her Vidya.



Satania's boyfriend would be Raphis pet and exist only to build up a huge NTR bully event

>makes Gabu wear cosplay

Good luck with that. It takes a lot to get her off her ass. Him playing her games will just get him thrown out.



I could see Gab being a totally submissive pervert under the right circumstances.

If this is supposed to be "low quality meat" then does it really matter if they are sentient or not? Are we certain they only produce brains here and not eat the whole bodies? Maybe the brain snack thing is just something the elites do?

This image reminds me of that one time Hunter Hunter showed a small portion of the Dark Continent.

Sung-joo's attitude and religion are quite realistic. "X is forbidden, except in this or that case" is found in many faiths and ideologies, with varying degrees of good reasoning behind them. Gotta stay kosher. Also, there's a card game.



I like his enthusiasm -- cheeky bastard.



I'm glad it turned out that at least one of these demons aren't just helping the kids out of the goodness of their hearts. That seemed like bullshit from the beginning, so it always seemed plausible that there would be some other motivation.

Also, I hope the kids brought their shovels, because nobody builds their secret base ABOVE ground.



>card game

For what purpose? There's not that much material or characters for that.

I also like Sung Joo's motives. Seemingly selfish, but his opposition to farmed humans could at least result in more free-range humans who actually have a chance to fight back, which can benefit Emma's new society if they don't make it to the human world.

Starts in ~2 hours.

AniSphere is an international anime song event for both Japanese and non-Japanese people to enjoy together.

◆About this event

Recently, we're seeing more and more people from all over the world at MOGRA.

Japanese people would like to make friends with them but it's not easy to find a chance.

International visitors are often looking for something fun to do at night in Akihabara but don't know where to go.

We could all have a happier nightlife if we could become friends and enjoy anime songs together!

AniSphere was born to make that connection.

Anime + Sphere = AniSphere!

I'm going to keep making threads for events on Fridays. The next thread will be tomorrow for the Anison Index event. Mogra's anniversary is coming up from August 25th through the 27th, but the events start earlier in the day than I'd be around for. Unless somebody wants to take the liberty of making threads, I won't be able to make them until partway through and would have to skip Sunday. Also it might have lots of normalfag music, not sure though.

Until then, I'll do my best to be here and I hope we can have even more people join us next time.




Thanks again Mogra anon.

Nobunaga reminds me of Kcalb from the Gray Garden, the white eyes, love for the chocolate, and grim face which makes it look like he lacks a mouth, ask the fact nobunaga was called demon king and Kcalb literally is a demon in Gray Garden.



I actually thought the Shinobu hater guy who only shows his one eye, kasuma is gonna have a huge Katana, I don't know why I thought so, maybe because he is looking far but he has not been much significant as of now, also I wish to see Oda fighting as well.

I'd have settled for something that just doesn't involve these shitty antagonist characters. Maybe I could've pretended that a different kind of shit was refreshing.



Yes, I wasn't best pleased about that either. This show was a lot more enjoyable in the first half when it was just about autists solving weird mysteries involving superpowers - I think this is one of those cases where a show is much better suited to short 1-3 part stories, attempting to do something bigger has really dragged it down.


So Haruki kept a last resource photohax, you really can't write keikaki without Kei. I would've prefer that Haruki didn't remember Kei for extra suffering, but apparently only Soma is allowed to suffer.



My god this was spot on. Another time when Kei saw everything coming and planned it all out perfectly. Just rename this show to Keikaku Autism already because its all the same story just at a growing scale, both in duration and stakes.


Soma is becoming a comical character. Every fucking episode she appears in just adds to her suffering, every time anything happens, things either continue being just as bad as they were or they get worse for her, for no particular reason. It's starting to become impossible to take it seriously.

I'm not all that pleased with j19, but I excuse it due to not having drawn for a while, j20 however pleased me greatly. Drawing this many characters on top of each other really is troublesome, you feel very restricted in which postures you can draw without everything becoming a clustered, undecipherable mess. I was originally planning to draw two or three more lolis running after the maid, and pulling on her skirt, but it took me a long time working things out, and at this point I'm quite exhausted. I expect good things for September, so far August has been a miserable string of shortcomings.

Went back and fixed all the things that bothered me, as leaving things half done is a bad habit. I dropped the idea of more lolis, I feel it'd take away from the shape of things.

Embrace your inner artist, make your own oc loli and draw nice things of your art loli daughteru.



Your biology is telling you to make lolis.
