/m/ech/a/

So, I'm in the middle of watching Layzner and Everyone just keeps fucking dying, holy shit.

There's some great tactics in the battles and I like the way the mechs move in this. The weapon beams are stylish, but it gets a little distracting at times. What did you think of this? It's a brutal show so far and the visuals are nice.

In any case, what mecha have you been into lately? Let's have another mecha thread.

Kumika no Mikaku finished today

>https://mangadex.org/title/20716/kumika-no-mikaku/chapters/

It finished its 5th and final volume in japan a while ago but the scans finally caught up. Only of the most underrated, wholesome feelgood seinen series in recent years. About an alien who only needs atmosphere as food coming to earth for work and discovering the joys of cooking and flavours.

It was a great but very niche series not enough people read and now its over ;_;

I'm Late to the Party, But Amazing Show.

I'm so thankful that I decided to give this show a go.

Everything is just so calming. It really makes me wanna get into camping more. I currently only go twice a year on abrupt trips to stupid places for the meme, where we just drink too much, joke about and play the guitar for a day or two. It's fun but this camping seems a lot more therapeutic. It's winter soon so I'm definitely going to try camping by myself for a day or two with the bare necessities to keep me comfy. Leave my phone in the car and either study in nature, explore or pick up a hobby.

Any of you try camping after seeing Yuru Camp or take up a new thing after loving a particular anime?

Light Novel/Web Novel/Visual Novel Thread

I've fallen behind in maintaining the LN/WN/VN thread since I've been reading Shield Hero's WN Bakarina. Enjoying anything good lately, /a/?

I've gotta eventually finish Spice & Wolf as well as the Slayers light novel, but I'm in a light novel slump these last few days as I play that stupid NTR game Evenicle. I started it and now I have to finish it. What are you reading? Find any gems among the normalfag trash? As for Shield Hero, I have to say the early chapters remind me more of a live action rather than an anime, while the later chapters are nice. It truly is a masterpiece in its own right, even if it's generic isekai trash. It manages to avoid the power creep which is a rare exception for Isekai. How's your own web novels coming along, anon? Made any progress?

Go-toubun no hanayome : Who'll be the winrar ?

If we're being realistic while talking about who's the winrar i'd say these are the percentages :

Ichika : 0% (She's too sweet and pairing her with mc's just too smooth for her to win, kinda gives me a Neko Fujinomiya vibe, will likely become an actor after graduating which decreases the chances of her ending up married)

Itsuki : 60% (She's likely the one to be chosen as she's likely the one that met mc when he was young, kinda is the mc of the quintuplets, ressembles a lot mc's bride attitude-wise and hair-wise, is still tsundere with mc which increases her chance of winning first place after her feelings progress later on in the story)

Miku : 30% (Is the one who we see express her feeling the most for mc, is kinda shy but not tsundere-like which increases her chances, has some cute interactions with mc, is the most liked quintuplet of the readers which decreases drastically her chances of winning)

Yotsuba : 10% (Most childish of the quintuplets, has not declared her love for mc yet, considers mc as a buddy more than a lover, has the most bland personnality and opposes the least opposition to the mc from the beginning which decreases drastically her chances of winning)

Nino : 0% (She's a bitch, she's too tsundere, so tsundere that even character developpement will likely not change her tsundere attitude towards mc even if she ends up winning and we see that the bride's pretty calm and composed, she likes the bad boy in him not the actual him, she has a shit personnality from what we've seen until now)

Who do you think will win and why ?

Sund/a/y /jp/Cinema Club

Welcome to the Sund/a/y /jp/Cinema Club!

This thread is for discussion of all things related to Japanese films. Let's explore and discover this underrepresented part of Nip culture. What movies have you watched and which are your favorites? What directors or actors do you enjoy? Got anything on your backlog?

I'm hoping we could use this thread for 2D as well since there are so many good movies we never get to talk about because they don't warrant their own thread. If you've never watched a Japanese movie before and are hesitant to do so because you swore off 3D films for good - you're in for a treat. There is scenery and visuals of such beauty they will make your eyes water. There's the Jap humor, there's cool action scenes and there's endearing stories. Most importantly, it will compliment your anime and manga in giving you another piece of intimate understanding about something you love. All wrapped up in a clean package free of westernshit cancer.

In addition, every Sunday we have a movie stream. Two movies are shown with an intermission between them. The first is a lighter movie, usually a kaiju or tokusatsu movie. The second is a heavier movie, by directors like Kurosawa or Kitano. In general these are more serious but not always. The movies start at 6:00 EST. We've switched to using cytu.be since it's a bit more reliable than streamchan and until stated otherwise the link will be the same. You will need to install a userscript on your browser in order for the movies to play if you haven't already.

Anime Club III

We're bringing it back!

If you don't know what this is, the Anime Club was founded in 2015 as a way for us to all watch an anime together as if it was airing once a week in order to produce OC and experience what watching it with /a/ would have been like.

Now, the Anime Club has become something to resurrect every once in a while as a rare event, and each time it has been organized by someone else and in different ways. I aim to retain this tradition with ACIII, so this time around, I'm organizing it like this:

Yes, there will be a cytube stream. I know this goes against the original idea of us all watching it separately so we can produce OC, but worry not. I will be posting a DDL for each episode every week. Those who cannot make the time are encouraged to utilize this DDL to watch it on their own. Those who do make it are also encouraged to do the same and produce OC with it.

>When does it air?

Wednesday at 5PM PST. That is all. No split days for different shows, no twice a week. It's Wednesday at 5PM PST. This will hopefully remove all confusion. The only problem with this time is that it conflicts with the rare Waifu Wednesday r/a/dio stream, but it's the only time I'm able to host it every week, so I'm locking it in. This won't always be the case forever, however, which takes me to my next revision:

After my set of streams is over, if things go smoothly, I will appoint a successor the ability to stream the Anime Club cytube and let them organize Anime Club IV however they wish, and for whenever they wish. They are able to just not use the cytube at all if they don't want to.

Let me know if I get something in this part wrong, I know I'm missing some things.

Anime you wish came back

I miss Bubblegum Crisis. It was a early 90's series and an early 2000's reboot where a cyberpunk future city has an issue with robots and androids going berserk and mutating their parts into monstrous forms and 4 sexy ladies form a team of vigilantes in exo suits to fight the evil corporation behind it as the polices hands are tied.

It was a strange blend of that dark 90's sci-fi anime and saturday morning cartoon shows and it was a great series thats sadly dead last i heard.

What series do you want to come back?

Sadpanda thread

It's been some time since the last one.

Post the doujins, tags, and artists you're reading, or that you hope to see scanned or translated.

There's a new interface and new features out. Do you love it? Hate it?

Personally I think the new look is much uglier, both in layout and in aesthetic style. Having the page count be visible from the search list is definitely something I've been wanting, but otherwise I prefer the old format (now called Minimal).

As for the tag watching and blacklisting, I'm apprehensive. As appealing as blacklisting sounds at first, I think I prefer the way the old Tag Flagging perk worked which I only bothered gathering the Hath to buy a month ago, just in time for it to be made redundant. It's not uncommon for only later entries in a series to have something undesirable, like NTR, or for different versions or translations of the same work to have different tags and only one to have the unwanted tag. The old Flagging style made that easily visible, whereas the new system just hides the ones with unwanted tags.

Series that should have ended years ago and how you would do it

I had to explain to a friend who is barely into anime what Attack on Titan was, why everyone he knows used to be super into it and why they all hate it now. This could be bullet point listed out as:

>Everyone guessed 3 chapters in it was going to be The Village and the basement had an example of centuries ahead technology in it. The writer vehemently denied this till it proved correct. Six real world years later.

>The writer reportedly having a 'everyone dies' ending in place till 2013 and changing it because his assistant had a beakdown over Sasha dying, which i guess is now a bit ironic in retrospect.

>Kept trying to reinvent his series world building as it grew increasingly evident he didn't know how to end it

>Main cast all doing personality/morality flips after a time skip and Eren Attacking and killing hundreds over on the mainland making him no better than the guys who did that to him as kids

>Changing it from a virus to a mythical pantheon of monsters and the reveal that Eren was the "Attack-On" berserker Titan all along.

I know people that keep up just out of obligation, personally i do out of morbid curiosity at how beyond Tite Kubo level absurd it gets but i dont enjoy it nearly as much as when it was "1800's alternate europe tries to survive giga zombie outbreak". Personally i would have ended it a long time ago. Just kill the last titans on the island, all seems good. Then explorers set out to the sea, find the mainland and its a ruined Tokyo circa like 2089 and titans are everywhere, all humans are dead and it ends on some comment about retreating to the safety of the island and "humanity being a bird in a cage" as a bittersweet twist that this none stop hell has actually only gone on for four of five generations and the freedom young Eren wanted as a child is now the ultimate hell just to hammer home a bleak ending the author originally wanted without just murdering everyone like an edgelord.

Not the best idea for an ending but it wouldn't still be shambling along with former fans wishing it was over. What series do you think is over the hill and should have ended a long time ago? and how would you have done it?

I recently watched both seasons of Shounen Hollywood.

Most important: this anime is wildly underrated and I strongly recommend it.

This is not a generic anime and should not be judged before viewing.

This anime is dripping with metaphor and depth. This anime is bittersweet. I found this anime both depressing and joyful at times. I found this anime emotionally engaging.

The passage of time and one's youth is a predominant theme in this artistic work.

If the above doesn't appeal to you, then if you're interested in the entertainment industry then you'll find Shounen Hollywood entertaining.

I really could feel the artistic vision here. It's difficult to put into words but this was definitely a "passion project". There was a ton of potential here but I'm forced to give it a 7/10 for technical reasons. I still strongly recommend it.

The bad: production quality is mediocre at best. It is arguably poorly directed. My greatest criticism is that 26 episodes is a lot of time and that time could have been used more effectively. There was so much potential for greatness and some of it was squandered.

I expected to drop this on episode 1 but it completely blew away my expectations. Just give it a chance.

Arslan Senki

Let me preface this by noting that I am a huge sucker for medieval fantasy and so I was optimistic about arslan senki.

The first 10 episodes were mediocre. However I found myself attracted to some of the characters. I also stuck around for the ships.

The last 15 episodes felt like a chore to watch. I regret wasting my time on this. Literally just skip straight to the doujins if you're considering watching this.

Alright, I'll elaborate. First of all, the characters in this were comically bland and cliche. Extremely poorly developed, especially considering how long the 'runway' was. The plot was Hollywood-tier. Although this isn't something I value, visual production quality was dreadful.

The good: some of the music was okay I guess. I like Kalafina. Some of the males are attractive. That's basically it.

Take away: don't watch this overrated garbage.

I am disappointed.

Genshiken Anime

What the fuck happened? The manga was wonderful but this anime is nothing like it. It barely looks the same and the voices are all wrong. The feeling is completely different, not to mention bad.

Is it because production had to be split between the Kujiki Unbalance scenes, with additional character and art design, or the game licenses? I was surprised to see actual Puyo Puyo and Guilty Gear, but then they scrap a lot of the Gundam references.

I just don't get it. What happened to this adaptation?

"Mecha Fans"

I'm trying to understand something. What is it that people who say they are "mecha fans" even looking for in a mech anime? I'm not talking about the ones who are actually into the genre who has seen dozens of 70s-80s shows, but, rather, the ones who haven't. The ones who call themselves mech fans and only mentions about 5-10 titles like a few Gundams, Votoms, TTGL, Eva, and whatever recent show they can use as an example to compare these to, usually Franxx now. I know I'm not a big mecha fan like some other anons, but I've at least seen a bunch more of these shows than these people and I know that it's just toyetic robots fighting monsters with a large sense of scale. I ask because time and time again they refuse to watch the majority of the genre, the kid-focused titles, and go out of their way to find anything to complain about in shows post-Eva. I've had people complain about character designs, or how it looks like a "harem", or they don't fight enough, or they fight too much, or there's too much drama, or there's no character progression, or it's not "hot-blooded" enough, or how it looks too much like x anime, and so on. There's no room for discussion on mechanical design, animation, SF, or anything that a mech anime is even about.

So, what is it they're looking for? What can you even say to these people? I think they have a wrong idea about the genre and aren't really mecha fans, but then what are they?

Industry History

I hope this makes sense, but I'd like to have this thread to help present and discuss the history of the Industry and Otaku to help anons understand where everything comes from. This includes studios, tropes, cons, people, merch, otaku, and whatever else comes to mind.

To get us started, here's a list of things the average anon may not know about:

<Notenki Memoirs

This is required reading for every /a/non. The full text with annotations can be found here:

https://www.gwern.net/docs/eva/2002-takeda-notenkimemoirs

It goes over, among many more things, the origin of otaku, SF clubs, cons, doujin, merch such as garage kits, Daicon, and the forming of GAINAX, this last being what I consider the greatest story about anime and Otaku. This autobiographical book is short, but gives a very good description of where we come from and is a good basis for understanding everything about the industry today.

Good supplemental material to this is Otaku no Video and Aoi Honoo.

<Otaku no Video

A psuedo-documentary anime on Otaku and the founding of Gainax, by Gainax, including their old vision of the future. I take it most of us have seen it already, but it's always a good one to revisit.

<Aoi Honoo

This goes hand-in-hand with Otaku no Video and Notenki Memoirs. An autobiographical manga by an otaku who went to school with Anno, Akai, and Yamada, the main founders of Gainax. It was adapted into a live action drama that is very entertaining and takes scenes straight from Notenki Memoirs.

<Powered Suit

Colloquially known as "Mech suit" today, unfortunately. This comes from the suit of the Mobile Infantry in Starship Troopers, because it didn't have a physical description in the novel. For the Japanese release of the book, the illustration on the cover became known as the Powered Suit, and, aside from directly showing up in various older anime, this illustration set the groundwork for all Mechanical Design in the industry today. You can see it in pic 2.

<Hideo Azuma

Known as "the father of lolicon and bishoujo" within anime and manga, he used to attend all the old SF cons talked about in Notenki Memoirs. White Cybele is the first ever loli manga, and many of his works has are SF and loli-themed. As such, he has been very involved in otaku culture all his life. Nanako SOS and Little Pollon are anime based on his work.

<Toshio Okada

One of the founders of Gainax and known as "Otaking". He, along with the author of Notenki Memoirs, was the one who brought everyone together to make the Daicon anime, and would always have very extreme and passionate suggestions at every opportunity. He now often lectures at universities on Otaku culture and currently has a YouTube channel where he talks about Otaku things.

https://www.youtube.com/user/toshiookada0701

<Takami Akai

One of the three great founders of Gainax with Anno and Yamaga. Seen as a genius illustrator and software developer. He made Princess Maker, the first ever raising simulation game like Idolm@ster today.

Later, he also drew the character designs for Crest of the Stars.

<Hiroyuki Yamaga

One of the three great founders of Gainax along with Anno and Akai. An absolute madman who has no real skills of his own, but would always proclaim he'd be famous one day. He "directed" the Daicon anime, Royal Space Force, and later Gainax titles. He had an IQ test of 40 in grade school because he autistically thought about each problem until he ran out of time, and always introduces himself by tracing "Yama" in the air, even to Tezuka Osamu.

<Tezuka Osamu

Needs no introduction. The godfather of manga and anime.

<Anno

Sasuga.
