Why people write NTR

I think I understand why people write and enjoy NTR. It's essentially anti escapism for men. Think about it. Most guys watch anime for the girls right? They like the girls tits, ass, personality, etc etc and they would love to imagine going out with them or something. Now enter NTR author, he's the ultimate no escapism chad wannabe, anime is serious business for him and he can't separate 2D and 3D and think anime girls are washed up sluts just like in this normalfag porn. So when he see the average anime fan being so happy enjoying anime he just thought "Grr, how dare these losers be happy with this medium with girls, they're supposed to be miserable for not getting pussy." And so he finds of a way to make them miserable again and thought "What if I write NTR, it'd surely make these loser angry and make them miserable like in real life." So he spends three thousand years drawing those anime girls being stolen by a more alpha chad that's totally not his self insert and releases them. When the anime fans read them, they would naturally get mad and the NTR author will react with "HAHAHA, SUCK ON THAT NERDS, EVEN IN FICTION YOU'RE STILL A LOSER, HAHAHA" and so the NTR author continues writing NTR to piss of anime fans.

I think that's what faggots like Jin, X ration Takeda Hiromitsu are thinking when they make their stuff to be honest.

>inb4 stop self insert

NTR author also make self inserts. Not an argument.

>inb4 anime fans fap to NTR too

They're the same people as NTR author. Wannabe chads that think anime is not for escapism like Anno.

>inb5 it's just fiction bro XDDDD

What was your first anime?

How did you get introduced to the otaku life?

Saint Seiya aired on open TV where I live, and I accidentaly tuned in on it one day. Untill then the most action I had ever seen in animation was from your usual toy advertisements in cartoon form, like he-man and thundercats. So you can imagine my shock and delight upon watching gore, blood, cool poses and people yelling the name of their attacks.

So how was it for you?

So far I am really impressed with Winter 2018. I really like:

>Yuru Camp

Comfy as fuck. Cute girls doing camping in the winter, eating good, hot food. SOLD.


Set in the future where the male MC has a hot robo waifu who can also fight. It's Blade Runner-ish. The plot is still developing, but looks promising. Looks like there is a scheme by antagonists to create a robot rebellion.

>Darling in the FranXX

I like this. Lots of tits and ass, cute waifus, and animation similar to Kill la Kill. Even the mecha they pilot have tits and ass shots. The plot is a little bit tropey, with humanity trying to defeat some kind of alien species threatening to kill of humanity.

>Toji no Miko

The characters are tropey. But the animation is good, though plot is still developing. Looks like "cute high school sword girls take on demons". This I think is 24 episodes. It's kept my interest so far.

Need good military anime recommendations. Military Sci-Fi is preferable but I'll take anything as far back as WW1.

Before you do:

Please no FMA - it's not a military anime, it just features a military.

Please no "Magical Girl #39" See the above for why.

Please no Black Lagoon or Jormungandr. See above for why.

Please no Tanya The Evil Witch. I've seen it.

Basically, if the military isn't a focal point, don't. Using a military setting to propel other themes or a story is fine(see OG Gundam) but only so long as the military setting is central.

Realism is, of course, preferred.

Cel animation and Digtal animation

Since /animu/ seems like a place to actually talk about interesting topics I'll lay this one out to you anons. Cel animation and Digital animation in anime, I'll be using using Princess Mononoke for being the being the high point of cel animation in anime and Kimi no na wa as one the high points of digital animation in anime.

With Mononoke you had an insane 114k cels of animation done traditionally with only 15% of it done with digital help from such programs as toonz or as it's know now as opentoonz, cel animation had this rougher yet more organic feel the production cost were high but the results were there. Part of the reason for the switch was because of how fucking expensive ink and paint were.

Kimi no na wa done hand drawn on paper but digitally inked and painted in Photoshop then animated in toonboom, programs like after effects and more were used along with digitally painted backgrounds to enhance the film. What I wanted to know /animu/ what are your thoughts on the cel animation to digital animation we see in anime?

But Shinkai is the new face of anime directors whether we like it or not.

Shit in anime that doesn't make sense

I've been re-watching Dragon Ball Z and I'm in the Cell arc.

So Tenshinhan and Piccolo are chasing after Cell (first adult form) and if they go fast enough to catch him he can sense their presence then hide himself, but if they go slow enough to mask their Ki so he cannot detect hem they cannot catch up to him. Why didn't they just hop into a fast aircraft and mask their Ki while flying the aircraft in pursuit of Cell? Also, Trunks goes back in time to make sure Goku doesn't die, but if Trunks wanted to destroy the Artificial Humans why wasn't his primary goal to discover the laboratory of Doctor Gero and find the blueprints for the Artificial Humans? Another thing that was puzzling, is that if they're looking for Cell or the other Artificial Humans and they have trouble finding them, couldn't they just use Uranai Baba?

In the previous Frieza arc, there were many opportunities to throw at least one Namekian Dragon Ball into the water to hide it from enemies, yet these tards never did it. Also in the Frieza arc Vegeta was more cunning and would often admit when he was outclassed then plan accordingly, yet in the Cell arc Vegeta goes full retard making countless poor judgements and decisions because "muh pride"?

Something at the beginnings of the voyage to Namek really triggered me. Mister Popo, along with Bulma, use a fucking magic carpet to instantly teleport to the region where Kami's Namekian space ship is located. If Mister Popo had a teleporting magic carpet then why didn't he teleport Goku to fight the Sayajins the moment Goku arrived at Kami's place? Instead people fucking die while Goku is making his way there on Kinto-Un. And why does Porunga bring people back from the dead to Earth instead of removing their halo while they're at Kaio's planet and making them run their ass all the way back across Serpent Road like Shen Long does? Better yet, why wasn't Kuririn, after he was killed by Frieza, re-assembled like Chaozu and able to go to Kaio's planet like everyone else?

Light Novels are shit

Light novels are shit. The level of writing of one of these trash is comparable to a smut fanfic written by a fourteen year old girl. The writing are so terrible that even with all the editors in nipland, you still won't be able to fix all the shitty writing because the writers are never good. And yet, these shitty fanfiction level "literature" are commonly used as a source material in anime and manga. How the fuck do the nips look at shit like Haganai, SAO, No Game No life, and fucking Oreimo and thought to themselves, "Yeah, let's adapt this. It's pretty good. Totally not the worst fucking cancer on earth." Because every time they decide to adapt one of these shit, they end up making some really terrible anime, that I'm actually surprised at how terrible it was. So why the fuck do the nips keep making and adapting these shitty books..

Hey /animu/, never noticed there's another actually ACTIVE anime board that isn't a circlejerk, so I really, really wanted to talk about this issue with people who don't just watch the same genre of anime all the time and that don't ban you by citing "spam" any time you bring up a point they don't really like: the subject matter, which I hold very dear to me in my autistic manchild mind is the absolute fucking state of Watamote.

How could one of the pinnacle of cringe comedy turn into a shitty slice of life manga filled with vapid characters that don't really do anything but go on school field trips, act as extreme, one-dimensional caricatures and soak up so many panels that Tomoko is lucky to have four or five speech bubbles for entire chapters, wherein she acts absolutely nothing like her pre-school-trip arc self, with no real explanation or defining moment as to how her personality flipped that quickly (barring her feud with Komi-something-san), and how, despite her personality being absolutely terrible regardless of arc, she manages to have a harem spontaneously form around her despite the fact that none of the characters actually like her barring Yuri? How did we go from an autistic girl making reaction faces and acting out juvenile power trips while lowkey wanting to be normal into Sex and the City with high school nips?

I just got done reading the manga and it was nice. It had a fair share of bullshit but told a story about a really fun and tragic character.

Was youko kinda the main enemy or was Joe just too in love with fighting to not focus on anything else in his life? Was she just into the world of boxing because thats kinda how youko expressed her love for Joe? I like the setups to each fight but most of them were just Joe getting the shit beat out of him until he realized their weakness. I would say the fights really dragged on but I'm not into boxing in general.

I think Joe's love boner for Riikishi goes on for too long but that is just me.

The end of the Carlos fight were bullshit as they were fouling each other back and forth. And the Harimau fight was absolute bullshit as he is able to fly over and bite him during the match(and was a literal gorilla man). Basically the manga shines with character building outside of the ring, there were less good parts in the ring.

Anyone else having a hard time keeping up with anime?

As I've gotten older, my love of anime has not diminished, but my time for watching it has. I am finding it impossible these days to stay on top of it all. Even as I watch some shows from the current season's lineup and slowly make small dents in my backlog, I have plenty of good and great anime from 10-15 years ago or more that I have never gotten around to watching. To say nothing of some random gem I might have just discovered yesterday that flew under my radar for 5 or more years.

I guess a succinct way of expressing what I am feeling is this:

If I were to go to an anime convention about a decade or so in the past, I would probably recognize most of the characters being cosplayed and be familiar with the animes they came from.

If I were to go to an anime convention now, many of the characters I am familiar with might not even make an appearance, and of the characters I saw, it would probably be about a 50/50 mix of characters I would not recognize at all and characters whose animes were still sitting unwatched in my backlog.

Maybe this is all just a poorly worded and semi-incoherent way of saying that I'm getting old, but do any of you feel like this from time to time? Like, one day you'll just wake up and you won't understand any of the references made on Laotian crochet boards and won't be familiar with a single character displayed or Chinese cartoon named?

As if you are slowly but steadly slipping out of the loop on things to the point that one day you might start questioning if you even belong in that sphere any more?

The Earth/Terra cult from LotGH was really disappointing. Not because they didn't come across as a threat, but because their characterization is so shallow compared to the rest of factions in the show.

But they were never shown as anything more than a deranged cult who wanted people to return to Earth.

Devilman Series

I feel that this series, as odd as it is, deserve to be appreciated for the thing it is. Not just for the shock factor but for all the themes about love and human nature it explores. It's an imperfect series that puts Jojo to shame on how weird it is. But ultimately an incredibly tragic one that really revolves around Satan himself over Akira. So let's all discuss our thoughts on the franchise, all it's incarnations, and what we thought of the latest rendition.

Crybaby is really the first time I've really full immersed myself into the franchise. I had read Grimoire previously a bit. Didn't get into it. Going back to Crybaby, I enjoyed it for what it was but it could've benefited from being a few episodes longer and if it had bothered putting more detail into it's art. Everyone just ends up looking too flat most of the time. I will say however that it's greatest strength is the soundtrack.

Underrated Shows

What are some shows that you think deserve more love? One show I think is extremely underrated is Joshiraku. I realise that the show is riddled with puns and jokes that would be hard to understand if you're not Japanese yourself, there are even some that refer to what then would have been recent events like the exploding watermelon joke.

Yet, if you look past that it's one of the comfiest SOLs to be ever made. Most CGDCT shows still don't focus enough on events happening in specific places in my opinion (like clubsrooms and classrooms) which kind of ruins part of the comfiness yet in Joshiraku almost everything takes place in the backstage room, other shows often try to force some sort of narrative in certain episodes as well which removes the SOL aspect of it.

Joshiraku has none of that, it's pretty much the writer shitposting through the cast of main characters (which he did in other works as well like Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei). Even when they do leave their backstage room the format stays the same, it's just the characters talking to each other about random stuff and other characters are non-existent.

It's sad that it never got a sequel (though it did get an OVA which only seems to be available in low resolution). The only fansub release it got (which was from GG) also didn't do it much justice in my opinion which certain jokes not being properly transalated, they forced in a completely unrelated MLP joke in the subs for example. I'm guessing that no other group bothered with it because they'd be writing more TL notes than actual subs.

Haibane Renmei

I just watched Haibane Renmei on a recommendation of an anon that it was similar in feeling to Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryoko. Though that wasn't the case (I actually found it close in feeling to Kino no Tabi) I still really enjoyed it.

I thought it was a very nice tale that told the story it wanted to tell, I liked that it didn't get bogged down in filler while not feeling rushed either. I also really liked that although the main character was Rakka, the story itself really was about Reki. You don't see that very often where the main character isn't exactly the character that the story is about. Obviously the story largely revolved around Rakka but at the same time her arc ended quite early while Reki's developed over the course of the whole series.

The one thing I didn't like was that there wasn't more world building. I understand that the writer didn't want to pollute his very personal story with a bunch of grand worldbuilding and lore but I still want to know other stuff.

Like what are the walls? Who are the Haibane? Are they people who died? What's outside of the walls? Who are the Tolga? Do the Haibane have an identity which existed before they became Haibane

I really would have liked more hints dropped throughout the series. Maybe even a little peek at what happens to the Haibane who take their last flght and go outside of the walls.

Overall it was good though I really liked it. So lets discuss it, what do you guys think?

Nora Higuma does amazing work, great shotacon doujins. I've found some on nhentai, but I don't think that all of his work is available there. Anyone know if other sites have a good amount of it? There should be more of them with schoolgirl nee-sans.

Kappa Mikey Anime Reboot

Japan needs to step its shit up and pick up this idea

Kappa Mikey (while largely mediocre) was really interesting in concept. Its a fish out of water story taken to its logical conclusion when the main character is from a diferent medium all together from his counterparts.

Have fucking studio I.G. or Bones make a badass stereotypical shounen/slice of life anime with main character being a Phillip Fry or an anthropomorphic Spongebob type character slapped rigt in the middle of it.

Baited and Switched

Most of us have the 2-3 episode rule. What are some shows that baited you into sticking with the show, before turning around and making you realize how awful they fucking were?

The big one for me was Black Butler. I didn't know anything about the series at the time I tried watching it, but the first two episodes made it seem like some badass keikaku show about 10-year-old Bruce Wayne who sold his soul to the devil. I wasn't prepared for the giant onslaught of pure gayness that followed.

During my 3 month nofap time I was slowly falling in love with some girl from a super market. She was really cute and even though there were some things with her appearance normal people would call flaws I actually thought they were what made her special. I started doing the usual robot thing like imagining marriage and sex and all that but long story cut short:

I started masturbating again and looking at lewd 2D-stuff. Today I saw her and I felt absolutely nothing. It's not like I'm not attracted to 3D at all. My penis still responds to visual stimuli of 3D humans having sex. My heart and my mind though are numb to this filth. Only 2D is able to make me feel special feelings even after cumming. This is why a real women has never been an option for me. I know that normal men also experience something similar, at least the "no desire for women after sex"-part, but I doubt with the same intensity I do.

What is your relationship with 2D and 3D?

A bit late but happy year to everyone on here.

What anime airing in the first season of 2018 are you guys excited for? I personally think this might actually be a good year for anime unlike 2015, 2016 and 2017 which each had a handful of good stuff at best.

Shows I'm actually hyped for are Poputepipikku (though I do wonder how they will actually adapt a manga like that into an anime, they haven't actually anounced the length of every episode yet so I'm wondering if it's going to be 2 minutes an episode like is normally the case with 4koma) and Mitsuboshi Colors.

Shows I think have a lot of potential are Yuru Camp△, Hakumei to Mikochi (I read the manga of this a year before the anime was anounced and it was very comfy even though I normally don't like manga much) and Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san. Sora yori mo Tooi Basho also seems interesting because of the concept itself but those kind of shows tend to dissapoint.

Shows that are on my plan to watch list just because I try to watch every SOL of a season but have zero expectations for are Gakuen Babysitters, Ryuuou no Oshigoto! and Slow Start.
