>first husbando
Recently tried to watch Haikyuu's last season but couldn't get into it for some reason. May be that I'm too old to get excited over small wins but that's a bleak thought. It wasn't my first anime but the first one where I felt a strong attraction to a character. His VA is voicing Gojo now who's one of my current husbandos.

I watched Fluffy Paradise randomly and it's pretty bad but I realized how much I want some chill and cute anime that's centered around animal love. I have a lot of stress and cute animals heal my soul. Does anyone have any recommendation?

I really enjoyed My Roommate is a Cat. Each episode features the owner's and the cat's perspective on an event or what the other is doing.

No. 347640

I watched the first 11 Episode from the first season of JJK and only have one question.
Does this trash get anytime good?
Most of the character are just fillers, Gojo is the typical overpowered "to cool for school" teacher character a 14 year old boy would write, the fights feel effortless and meaningless(can't see any exhaustion of characters fighting, battle damage that barely effects them(they just acknowledge it and continues)), the whole story feels like going nowhere and my biggest gripe with it, are these characters even human? Or do they even have any human emotions, like grieve, rage and especially shock? Most of the characters are never scared or shocked not matter what you put in front of them. You would expect a high school student finding out that curses are horrible monsters in the real world would shit his pants, but nope.
A critique I found very close to my mine is this video.
Fucking Naruto did a better job on world building and handling characters motivations and emotions.
JJK's Hype reminds me of Demon Slayers, people were praising it, got even tattoos but if you ask anybody today it seems like the Anime vanished from the face of earth despite being in the 4th season.

No. 347674

When I tried to read through the JJK manga it felt like a corporate committee going down a checklist of what they need to see from their Marketable Shounen. Past ones like Naruto and Bleach do get retarded over time from piling issues but they still pretty much come across as creations of one mangaka's hand plus the editor's feedback

No. 347676

You are probably not far off. Is like "Bleach made money but its ending, lets make something like it to fill the slot"

I've been watching jjk since it came out with a group of friends. I honestly couldn't tell you what exactly the anime is about. All these modern shonen have the same plot. MC is somehow infected by the evil guys, he joins a group that usually fights the evil guys but makes him the exception.

Different anon and I don't care about the video or youtube or whatever but why would you assume you're alone when any fotm popular thing is going to have people who tried it and don't like it. JJK is old enough to where the ones who don't like it don't have a reason to talk much about why and ignore it, because it's fairly empty in of itself

No. 347731

What's good this season? I've watched:
Dungeon Meshi, doesn't live up to the hype so far but it's perfectly decent.
Sasaki to Pii-chan, some boring ugly salaryman moid and a bird, dropped it like 10 minutes in.
Momochi-san, cute but very low quality.
Yubisaki to Renren, very cute.
Solo Leveling, I'll keep watching but 1st ep is just generic grimdark isekai.
Himesama Goumon, it's alright but not enough to keep me interested.
How's Sengoku Youko? Worse or better than Hoshi no Samidare?

>Does this trash get anytime good?
No, you're supposed to turn your brain off and watch it for the hot guys and decent fights, not even joking
the manga is a hot mess that gets even worse, it's become a guilty pleasure of "how low can it go" for me, waiting for that massive asspull the author's going to do to defeat the big bad
>Fucking Naruto did a better job on world building and handling characters motivations and emotions.
Naruto is a classic at this point and one of the old big 3, JJK is a blend of multiple series' elements (from YYH,Bleach,Naruto, to name a few) that somehow fails to deliver on everything and feels empty.
Jujutsu Kaisen literally translates as "Sorcery Fight" afaik … so the show somehow delivers on that (the fights are subpar tho) and not much, which is a shame because some of the character designs are really cool.
The animation isn't that bad and some of the music choices are pretty dope, especially in S2.
>Take that Gojo dick outta your mouth before typing girl.
I snorted, hell I love Geto but the series isn't good.
It exploded in popularity because it's a blend of marketing + at the right place and at the right time + social media hype, when it ends it will be forgotten pretty quick imo because it has no substance.
Again, the guys are super cute, what a waste!

New female-oriented romance anime called A Sign of Affection, basically A Silent Voice but shoujo.

While I'm down for any anime meant for girls and women—NGL this looks kinda generic, I can already tell the female lead is going to be really uwu and I usually hate those types of female characters.

Also, kek at the main guy having manhwa-tier stung-by-a-bee lips, made me do a double-take the first time I saw it.

I'd watch it if it were by any other author, but Hibi Chouchou, a previous series of the duo, was so utterly boring with absolutely nothing happening between MC-chan and MC-kun in the entire twelve volumes, so I'm definitely passing on this one lol

>I can already tell the female lead is going to be really uwu
yup. i read a few chapters of the manga 2 or 3 years ago and she basically just does the big eye stare at the guy and the guy is vaguely amused and chuckles sensibly. not to mention that he looks like a hulking giant (and actually his age) while she looks like a 12 year old.

is the villainess genre REALLY supposed to be written for a female audience or is this another case of moids stealing a genre from women and making it their own? idk if it's the artstyle but the mc looks so much like a waifu intended for male gaze, the "ikemen" in the back all look boring and plain as hell, the other female side charas are added in the front as if to show they're more relevant than the male cast… that's like making an isekai with a male protagonist and making his waifu harem extremely bland and one note and instead focusing on his male rivals and buddies

No. 348303

it seems like a genre for both women and men imo

No. 348304

This is the sort of design you'd see in a scrote eroge like Princess Evangile or whatever of the sort, rather than in an otome game. If you redrew the middle girl in that stereotypical old anime style that eroge use, it would fit just right.

On a side note somewhat unrelated it was always kinda funny to me how characters in actual porno games are so intricately dressed and a lot of girls have universally appealing designs meanwhile girls in regular anime always have retarded coomer shit designs that only a scrote could love. Reminds me of the pre-Nekopara days when girls would repost Sayori's illustrations everywhere despite the fact they were hentai characters, just because the fashion was cute.

I'm also tempted to catch up on it because of this thread ! I used to watch a dubbed version on TV super long ago so it's nostalgic to me but also since I didn't watch the whole thing properly in order I can't discuss it and it's frustrating.

No. 348363

It's made by retarded women who want men to read their works too so they have to make the girls extremely cute but then they forget to make any of the boys interesting and resort to the generic princely archetype. Otaku stuff for women (except BL) in general suffers from this. When I read josei/TL smut its all about making the female lead a cute/sexy/appealing woman with perky tits moaning but the guy will barely show up in panels alone, all the angles will be from the traditional POV of a man having sex with a woman. The mentality is so backwards in showing that the only thing that matters is how appealing the woman is in a relationship.

No. 348375

Tbh I think some anons here will just sperg about anything they dislike as scrotebait, not that I dont see her point and I do agree with the general sentiment that the villainess genre hardly feels specifically for women. I think its because female-orientated shows try to cast a wide net (extremely half-assed attempts) while not hitting the mark for everyone, meanwhile regular moid shows dont bother doing that at all unless its shounenshit or something.

I started watching Apothecary Diaries and I really enjoy it. The heroine is interesting and really passionate about what she does (herbs, medicine, and poison) but makes smart choices to blend into the time period. I appreciate having an 'average' girl x hot guy kek, usually it's the opposite in media.
Fair warning for sensitive nonnies though, there's a decent amount of sexually suggestive content in the anime, since it's about a girl working in an imperial Chinese harem, and trying to be avoid being sold into sexual slavery herself. But most of the sexual content is making commentary on sexism, imo.

I haven't seen the anime in question, but they could all be my husbands and we take care of a cute daughter. Sounds like a good fantasy. Cute kids don't have to be creepy, and it sucks that anime has made that the standard.

I mean, the little girl is the main character who got isekai'd into the story so it is intended to be interpreted in that way. it isn't really shocking when you remember loli as we know it stems from shojo protagonist aesthetics.

For what its worth, checking the first episode it's more of just a little girl that gets slight tips/warnings from her past life, rather than an adult in the body of a girl.

I haven't seen the anime you mentioned, personally. I feel like anime about parenthood/children can easily slip into degeneracy, I just don't think it has to be the norm per se. I'm really enjoying Spy x Family, the fandom really sexualizes Anya but I don't think that has anything to do with how she's portrayed in the anime. The anime just portrays her as a sweet (but dumb) little girl.

Watching Amano Akira's new series and she still does that thing where she obviously wants her main audience to be fujos but for some reason shoves in random time-wasting female characters whose sole purpose is to be moebait.

I just learned the news that Shugo Chara is getting a new sequel manga this summer. I am so excited!
I can't remember if Ikuto was my first husbando but he was definitely one of my earliest ones. I loved that series when it was airing/releasing and I hope that means it will end up getting a new anime too. Yes it's a series for teenagers but I'll always have a fondness for it. I had forgotten just how many seasons it got when I was looking at the wiki page for it so between that and the unexpected manga sequel news more than a decade after the fact, the series must have been more popular than I realized at the time.
I also saw a fan re-uploaded one of her AMVs with AI 2K upscaling within the past week and it looks so freaking good compared to its 720p origins. There was so much that went into Amu's fashion in particular and all the character transformations that I think would be great to see with modern day animation techniques.
I wonder who will end up picking up the new manga. Mostly women like me that enjoyed it as a kid or will it bring in a new wave of young shugo chara fans that will end up clamoring for a new anime?

I'm currently watching season 2 after finishing season 1 late last year and I'm 12 episodes in and honestly I gotta agree with the others, the anime doesn't get better and it's absolute trash. The power level talk is just obnoxious and I get lost trying to follow it and honestly, I don't even know what the plot actually is at this point. I hate to admit it but Demon Slayer's story is a tad better since the plot, as generic and boring as it is, is at least present.

I wanted to like JJK because I genuinely like the setting and some of the character designs are quite nice but aside from that, there's just not much of anything here.

So like others have said, you have to turn off your brain and just watch for the fights and the hot guys (and girls if that's your thing) but I would not be surprised if the anime gets forgotten once it's finished because like >>347776

I think it's a japanese thing in general. They're super obsessed with brands and sometimes to a ridiculous degree. Even in alternative circles I get the same impression. The way they perceive fashion and trends is much different than in the west, where very often they'd create strict rulesets you'd need to follow in order to belong to xyz subculture. It's interesting because they're also into DIY, but you always need to have burando of some kind to show off.

And if they're NPC women they're usually shown as vain or stupid in a 'normie' way before killed. And they are 90% drawn as cute while killed male npcs are old and ugly often. Am I imagining it?

I don't get why people (specially adults) still consoom shounencrap, you then see all the dipshit weebs complaining about poorly written female characters and misogyny plus the usual weak plots and poorly planned twists on places like twitter, while at the same time they be actively seeking this genre of animanga and thus encouraging the production of these types of shows. I genuinely don't get it.

No. 351804

>I don't get why people (specially adults) still consoom shounencrap
My guess is that it's because martial art movies aren't really a thing anymore. All the people 30yo and above who are into shonen manga whether they're men or women were very into Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan movies when growing up, where the plot was just a pretext to watch a bunch of actors and stuntmen do backflips and beat the shit out of each other in cool ways. Shonen manga is just that but with the occasional super powers to spice things up.

No. 351810

Ayrt, I watched it all mostly as a background noise and I do agree that it's worse than Naruto. I don't know if I'm dumb but I didn't really understand most of the explanations of the overly complicated abilities of everyone. And I don't even care, the enemy is gonna be killed in the same way everyone else (meaning main guy will suddenly remember friendship or his inner demon will wake up or whatever and will power up). It feels like 80% of the show is just people explaining their boring-ass abilities and sudden gore for shock factor. Naruto at least had interesting setting and world building.

Dandadan is really good for goofy fun. It has great art quality for a weekly series, it’s about teenagers discovering the existence of aliens and ghosts and going on crazy cryptid-fighting adventures. It doesn’t have much in line of an overarching story but it’s very enjoyable.
Make the Exorcist Fall in Love is a Christian-themed battle shounen about a boy priest slaying demons. I’m 99% sure the author is a woman and it has very unsubtle feminist themes and is very critical of Christianity, and has lots of cool horror aspects. CW for sexual assault of a boy in the first chapter though.
Undead Unluck has an extremely moidy start but has some really unique and interesting worldbuilding, a very unpredictable story, and a female protagonist who comes to wholly take the spotlight that really charms me to it. It’s about an immortal guy teaming up with a girl who gives people bad luck to try to kill himself, but the story turns into a high concept fantasy.
Yomi no Tsugai is a new series by Hiromu Arakawa, the lady who made FMA. It’s about a boy from ancient Japan being dragged into the modern day world to find his missing sister. It’s fairly early on, but already has a lot of the charm of the FMA manga if you ever enjoyed that, and is extremely well constructed and interesting so far.

Dandadan is indeed moid shit and very coomer about half the time or more. I know that is already more than enough reason for a lot of farmers to avoid it, I can get past it but I just hate the battle shounen format too much. I like the occult theme, I like the main characters and I like the art, but it just feels like the interpersonal relationship aspects of the story and the characters' charm gets run over with "let's fight today's enemy now", it feels like a chore. I wish I could enjoy this bullshit cause the characters look cool but I just hate shounen crap.

- Golden Kamuy (yes, lots of fanservice, but it's just the male characters)
- Vinland Saga
- Psycho Pass (I think there was a recent discussion regarding fanservice, but in my memory only one of the movies had some blatant fanservice, the regular series didn't - or am I wrong?)

Nta but this is the case for almost every anime and not exclusive to JJK, I rarely see “ugly” female characters exist. That’s just how anime is because moids will screech and kill themselves if something unappealing to their dick exists. I’ve also been paying close attention to anime parents in the last few years and realized that most dads are always drawn as some old dude, or at least has heavy eye bags/wrinkles to signify his age but the mothers just look like pretty women in their late 20s lol.

i think it's ironic how most of the popular husbandos were created by moids, from shounen publications… idk if it's because a lot of female mangaka would rather focus on female characters and the husbandos seem a bit sidelined or if moids are just able to write them in a more authentic way?

No. 352200

Dungeon meshi has a very slow start, it took me a while to get into the manga. It becomes a lot less episodic over time, though.

No. 352203

i think its just because shounen is usually more popular than stuff that's aimed at women.

No. 352205

I don't think it's ironic, the husbandos coming from those series are popular because they're from popular series. The vast majority of anime being adapted is shounen to begin with, and shounen manga gets more sales because both moids and women will read them, and anime adaptations boost sales as well (so there's a feedback loop).
>implying that female mangakas only ever make manga focused on female characters
I mean this is definitely not true for female mangakas that write shounen, and even in shoujo I wouldn't argue that male characters are sidelined at all.

No. 352208

what do you mean by popular, popular in the west? because japanese yumejos go head over hells for husbandos made by and for women(enstar, twist, genshit boys). Most Japanese yumejos love those type of characters, meanwhile westerners tend to gravitate towards the shounen husbandos, probably because they just started watching anime and its the flavour of the month. I wouldnt call them real husbandofags to be honest, just trendhoppers.

No. 352212

But the thing about husbandos is that they're very much not like real moids, that's why they're husbandos. I think the reason they're more popular is because there's more focus on male characters in shounen while shoujo usually focuses on a female mc. I also agree with >>352203 notice how the most popular shounen husbandos are from extremely popular normie tier anime like Sasuke or Gojo. I think more weeby women with more obscure husbandos tend to go for shoujo or josei characters.

I used to be a huge fan of Tsubasa Resovoir chronicle but looking back it's the most convoluted mess and ruined Sakura and Syaroan's character. I understand CLAMP likes putting other characters in their work but I feel like some should have never been included. They just made Sakura/syaroan the main characters from recognition alone. It's retarded that we had to put up with zombie ass sakura for most of the series only to find out she's just a clone of the real Sakura There's a reason why people have had so many complaints about the series for the past 20 years. Truly a blight in Clamp's work.

Personally, I really like it. I haven't watched all of it but I'm about 50 chapters into the manga. Frieren's cute design is what made me interested, love her. And like other anons said it's fotm with a cute girl protagonist so it attracts the worst people to the fandom. They've apparently banned making doujinshi of it so clearly they don't want degenerate porn made though.

Not wholesome but Claymore has that type of dynamic, plus a really badass female cast. I'm pretty sure no sexual implications, but iirc their relationship was pretty open-ended at the end of the series. I've only read the manga, so no idea how the anime holds up.

There is no market for lesbian anything in anime, aside from the niche fanbase of male fetishists. Those types only want coomershit (like Mahou Shoujo ni Akogarete), so even they wouldn't watch it.

As someone sensitive to scrotey/rapey moments in anime, is there much of it in JJK? I watched the first episode and the girl being harmed by the monster just had to include it groping her and a clear shot of her breasts during it. It turned me off tbh but I'll be willing to keep going if the anime doesn't include too much of it. Also I don't expect this to be a feminist masterpiece, but there isn't too much overt misogyny is there? Or at least anything worth mentioning just since I'd rather not be surprised after the first episode made me a little annoyed if I do keep watching.
I know the anime isn't actually made for women but I really dislike women in distress being used as coom-fodder

in the manga there is a sexist character that i think was implied to have been sexually interested in one of his cousins? another spoiler to that, he dies to one of the girls he was sexist towards.

No. 357506

I saw people say that's a stretch, I'm not sure if the implication is there in the original Japanese text but I also took it as him just reminding her that the other is dead. I'm trying to keep it as vague as possible without names lol especially because that character apparently talks very cutesy I thought it was a "Let's ask her! Oh no… she can't talk! She's dead!" kind of taunt. Maybe the anime will have a clearer translation. Regardless he's not given much time and is glaringly presented as a bad person so I didn't feel like it was similar to stupid fanservice as a woman is about to die.

No. 357531

There is more fanservice for women in this than moid coomslop

No. 357560

There isn't very much as far as shounen goes. Although, it's probably worth noting there is some implied incest oneeshota later on, but it is framed as strange, at least. And I haven't seen the part where the anime adaped it, so they may have toned it down (or played it up, unsure.)

No. 357586

Anons have already answered you, but to summarize, the only coom moments are this
>first episode groping
>ass shot in jjk 0
>random shota incest for 10 seconds
But that's all I can remember. The fanservice for women is amped up in the second season too though. At least in my opinion. But I consider female fanservice any moment I think a male character is hot kek Specfically Toji and Nanami. They must've had women working on those scenes

I didn't have any expectations going in other than I think it being "sci-fi". It was just so different from any anime I'd seen before at the time.

The copypasta on the fujo thread had me thinking, what are some good anime to recommend someone who's overly awed by the spectacle of Fate? I know someone who thinks he's a weeb cause he watched death note as a kid and likes fanservice trash and he annoys me constantly about how Fate is the best shit ever because of the fight scenes (personally only really liked the first episode, it drops off immediately because the male mc is boring and I was only interested initially cause the first episode baits you with Rin, the girl, as the mc instead of the scrub).
He convinced me to watch binge it again with him so now I want to rub it in his face that better stuff exists but he places visuals over plot so anything better that doesn't have as "good" animation is seen as lesser automatically. It's probably a lost cause but I'd enjoy watching any recommendations anyways, if nothing else at least to cleanse my own palate. I like visuals but haven't watched many "pretty" animes since most don't catch my interest cause I'm not the biggest fan of style over substance stretched out for a season. He's clearly ok with it though so the recs don't need to be much better kek

thanks for the recs! Parasyte had been on my own list to watch for a while so I'll check it out first probably. Claymore is also a manga on my read list so it's getting bumped up
tbh i'd just come from his stupidity and let it get to me because a simple "meh it was fine" resulted in him trying to prove somehow it was the only anime that looks like this therefore it's great (despite him not watching much). I didn't have any rebuttals since most of the stuff I've watched is old but figured there had to be better. Yours and >>359403 , >>359392 posts made me laugh and get over it though.

kek, that's so mean but really funny to think about doing. tbf he at least can tell things like SAO are shit and rapey, and he enjoyed sailor moon for non coom reasons so I think it's more he is happy with pretty and shallow things because he doesn't have experience with much better in any form of media. he's not a romance, he's related so spent a lot of time unfortunately together

trying to watch paranoia agent and i love the story so far but then i'm reminded of why i hate anime so fucking much. why do we need to see tsukiko's bra through her shirt? why is satoshi kon like this? does he think moids will stop paying attention if they don't get some pointless fanservice? fucking christ, this is why perfect blue also annoyed me, such a cool and creepy movie but everytime there was an exploitative "sexy" shot of mima (and that godawful male-gazey rape scene) it made me hate it.

No. 360799

Seems like Akira Toriyama did the typical moid shit of needing medical attention after injuring himself, having his family members telling him to go to the hospital, refusing because "no it's nothing lol I'm fine" and died from what seemed like a normal fall.

He has also said that he would be the type of old man who pretends to be senile so that he could peep on his daughter in the shower while admitting in the same interview that he would not mind another girl child. Additionally, he has joked about cheating on his wife if he could get away with it. Also, while he might not have got caught with cp like Watsuki, I am pretty sure all popular mangaka are friends with each other. Oda is friends with, and has continued to publicly show support for and even collab with convicted pedos - Watsuki & Shimabukuro.

yeah they pretty much take these female characters and just reduce them to being coombait in their fanarts and comments about them which is disgusting, they can never be normal about female characters in general even when they're not explicitly very sexualized in the source material. and it's just like, why are they even into frieren or dungeon meshi in the first place? why not go watch or read some hentai shit instead if that's what they want. it's like they enjoy tainting everything they can get their hands on and i've never met a moid that likes anime or anime girls without having this retarded porn brainrot about them, everything has to be sexual and about how they're hot waifus at all times

No. 360889

samefag but another thing is they also can't seem to be attracted to fictional characters (or real people) in a normal way really, it always has to be extreme and deranged instead of just looking at the character and being like yeah she's hot, or something without reducing them to just that one aspect. fern has pretty much been reduced to just "big boob waifu" while frieren is "loli elf waifu" and marcille is "blonde elf waifu" to these retards, and yet they still somehow consider themselves fans of the shows. and it's funny because these coomer moids don't realize anything they touch turns to shit, like by making these characters just coombait or just seeing them as a vapid sexual object or waifu of the month, they take anything that made them likeable or made them stand out in the first place, and just turn them into generic anime slut number 500

I think his rampant coomerism was cringe, but while I agree with criticising it (and I have a lot of words about that myself) I feel like it's pretty obvious nonas mourning him on here didn't like him for the shitty coom and rape jokes but for the things he's actually remembered for, so memorable character designs, cool fight scenes, lovable morons with a heart of gold, childhood husbandos and so on. It's understandable to have a dumb kneejerk reaction to someone who comes here to virtue signal just because nonas are sad that one of the most influential authors of the last century died relatively young and in an awful, sudden way.

Personally? I have a fondness for Arale Norimaki. She was the first idiot female character I ever saw and I autistically related to her silliness. 98% of anything to do with female characters and Toriyama is garbitch but I love Arale and her two electronic braincells

Agreed, tbh I enjoyed seeing vulgar and strong women on screen because women were otherwise too "clean" in media if that makes any sense. I've heard the manga is a bit more adult than the anime and the character were subdued so I'm probably gonna download it to my kindle and give it a read soon. Plus, who knows what got changed in the old dub that I've got in my head

DBZ was among my first ever anime, I have ancient memories of shoving my cousins off the couch screaming Kamehameha and it was a massive deal to so many kids back then. For lots of kids Goku was their Superman. It plus Sailor Moon opened up a whole new world of media to me and so many others. I loved the character designs and action, even if they sometimes took too many episodes to get to the point lol.
Nearly every scrote whose media I have enjoyed has been awful behind the scenes or even overtly, at this point I judge the media itself and pirate everything made by men. DBZ isn't close to good female representation but nothing really is even now. Regardless, it's still enjoyable to me and the women are still pretty unique in their personality types vs typical media. I don't remember anything bad enough to me that I couldn't enjoy it but hey, maybe my mind will change in reading the manga as an older adult

I believe my country began showing Dragon Ball for the first time in 2002, and then after finishing DB they immediately started showing dbz until 2003 so I grew up with both.

I was extremely young and I get the feeling that I probably actually saw the first run of GT in my country in either 2000 or 2001 before everything else.
GT tells you the whole backstory so of course I was excited and not confused to see the reruns of regular Dragon Ball started right after they ended airing it.
I actually far preferred regular DB to anything else. I think I was fine with DBZ up until the Buu saga but even back then I couldn't stand the lenght of some fights.

JJBA is pure fun, the type of thing you read or watch because of the fight scenes, the suspens, the characters being hilarious, retarded, stylish or cool, the batshit crazy powers the characters get, etc. but don't expect a super coherent, smart story. Sometimes it does feel obvious that Araki was writing some of the stories and twists chapter by chapter instead of having a coherent idea before starting some parts but I don't think that's a problem at all. What's good is that while the series isn't over, the parts are distinct stories so you can read or watch each of them at your own pace (in order of release of course) without feel burnt out. I really regret selling my French volumes a few years ago even though I needed the extra money, now I'm considering getting part 1 to part 6 in Japanese someday.

With the way it plays out you do kinda need to see around 3/4ths of it for it to look a lot neater as a package, but the basic setup is that there's two completely different worlds: one is full of rowdy people being run by their base urges (greed, hunger, lust, and so on), you expect these types from a brutal city. Trying to either grab what's theirs with the threat of violence in a place of scarce resources, or in one man's case, trying to become the dominant power to unify everything to hopefully create a much better situation. The other world above has achieved a pure and completely peaceful utopia but has also fallen into a ghost-like sterility. There's some things I felt strongly in the last fourth or so of the show but they're not things I'm able to articulate into words well, for me that kind of feeling is pretty rare with anime. I have no idea how different people would react to that last third or fourth of the show though

The show's design (and most adaptions) is her "improvement" that came later on but imo people only accepted it because the overall bar was on the floor for the redesigns.

No. 362900

i never thought they were too bad, and the mangaka never sexualized the underage girls, and they both shiemi and izumo receive pretty decent character development (that heavily has to do with each other, as well as some male characters still tho), and even shura gets an arc that fleshes out why she behaves the way she does (its a whole cycle of abuse and trauma thing) and gives her depth, also comments on how society tends to think of women as "expired" after the age of 30.

there is always an aspect of apologism when it comes to abusive men, though. they're definitely not the worst female characters out of shounen, and they were created and created by a female mangaka, so i'm not as harsh on them as i am shitty female characters like the girls from naruto. blue exorcist in general just isn't that good?

At least Naruto has Tsunade, Ino (her relationship/rivalry with Sakura was endearing) and Karin. The AnE girls are so bland and I can't honestly see any character development for Izumo. She's still the same as before, her past being revealed hasn't changed a thing about her or how she behaves. I can't tolerate Shura - she never stops being coomerbait. That marriage subplot was also a mistake. Also archetypes like Shiemi are the worst and dating sim level of wish-fulfilment.

frieren is a good anime however some of the character designs look autistic as fuck and somehow appeals to coomers despite not being sexualized in the show. i think it's cause everyone has an extreme baby face and it's some sort ot moe but an ugly moe, like serie who i find very ugly but she also looks kinda moid-y at the same time. i don't know how to explain it, but it's this blob loli animu style that drives coomers wild

Yeah the art kept me away from it when it was just a manga but I actually wound up liking it. The manga artist is actually just kind of bad at drawing (can draw decent static poses but struggles with action; theyve been getting a little better lately but I kinda miss the days of every single fight scene being cut, it was funny) and the characters have somewhat of a same-face issue.

Any good sports anime?

I just finished watching Salaryman Club and really enjoyed it. Different from what I usually watch and would like to add more to my watch list.
I thought it would be boring but it was well animated and the storyline was nice. I’m not a major fujo but the two main characters were dripping with bait. It even had a typical BL arch where the MC and ML had a short but powerful history that ultimately changed the trajectory of their lives. Of course the MC completely forgets (because it happened when he was a small child) this until the nearing of the end season and realized who his badminton partner was. Also, cute boys in suits.

I've read good things about Overtake (based on Japan Formula 4) that it's surprisingly well done for a short sports anime original. And I remember seeing praise for Baby Steps (tennis) which is a title that might not show up often on recommendation lists, but for the manga not the anime.

Did you watch Ōoku: The Inner Chambers when it came out? Wasn’t that long ago.

I just felt like they were stories about women (hence why it depressed me) and the male anime character on the screen playing the role wasn’t fooling me, but it was an interesting show.

I'm finishing Ōoku rn because you peaked my interest and ngl I find it so tame. What's the point of setting your plot in a matriarchy if you're going to immediately try to dismantle it? I wanted to see the male concubine dynamics and their struggles before the shogun dismissed them. Is it just the anime that's paced like that? I'd pick up the manga if it showed more of the dark things that are supposed to be going on in the chambers. Compared to all the suffering female characters have to go in historical settings (even when they're targeted towards women) this doesn't elicit much of a emotional response to me which is a shame because th premise is so interesting yet so rare.

I read all available chapters for no fucking reason when I had a fever because someone I know mentioned it offhand about it being cute display of otaku culture, for some reason I always read the worst slop in a mood like that. You'd think Dress-up Darling is Shakespeare after this.
Instead of it being about otaku enjoying cute characters it was entirely about how otaku are superhumans power fantasy, it was really stupid. Even the bland protagonist at some point goes shirtless and reveals he's really jacked because of all the manga volumes he had to lift and it wasn't treated as a gag.
Every girl is basically described the same about how since they're otaku they all naturally have skills required for cosplay even if they have never done it before, and of course all of them never use makeup because children think only uggos use makeup.
There was literally only one (relevant) character in the entire series that used makeup for cosplay and everyone calls her ugly, but her design was far hotter than all the other moeblobs.

That was my main problem too, it wasn't so much Aura or the demons because I figured they're weird and had money to dress extravagantly to assert control. Or something. My problem was picrel and how they look completely out of another (perhaps isekai) anime, compare to how modest Fern looks for example and it takes you completely out of the story. They're insufferable too, like everytime we spent time with them I wish we could had spent looking at whatever Stark was doing around town instead (could had been cute ngl). I'm glad they didn't pass at all and I hope we never have to see them again.

They really stood out and for the wrong reason. It made me realize the author is very one note when writing characters too, almost everyone's personality is exactly the same, specially the girls. They're all some flavor of quiet or serious girl, Kanne (red hair) is at least a bit annoying and quirky to contrast Lawine and you also have the psychopath green haired girl but that's really not an improvement is it

Anime or media in general is already oversaturated with attractive women being naked and sexy; constantly giving spoiled rotten moids boners and making women uncomfortable or turning into brainwashed coomers.

Tbh I do think it's a little infantilizing to say Japanese women only do it for men, especially since Japanese men have been sexualizing anime men in basically the same way; even while they're seemingly happily married, like with Goldem Kamuy, Bravern, or Sarazanmai.

Kamen Rider and Super Sentai are also popular with women despite being made for little boys, and they also have Hello Kitty collabs, and that doesn't make them femgazey.

In general, I disagree with the stance that if manservice is made as a joke, it shouldn't count.
Half of all fanservice are jokes. Hell, something like Konosuba, Aqua not wearing panties is a joke that because she doesn't want anybody to look at them, she turned them invisible.

Men in japan literally make AMVs of gay porn, they do not feel threatened by roidpig manservice because they see it as a joke. Aqua is also a cute generic anime girl, a bishoujo, meanwhile the golden kamuy fags are fucking ugly.

No. 365185

It makes sense to avoid moid spaces, but if you ever went to one they actually do go ballistic over joke service and go "wtf is this gay shit.", "I'd watch it if they toned down the service but it was too much and I had to drop."

The ones that at least act boyish can be good. As long as they aren't troons or cocksluts. GetBackers really had a lot of wonderful boys.

I think most anons here would enjoy Neuro. Too bad about the terrible anime adaptation. They held back Neuro's world domination.

I think she's far better in the second half of the story, post-Red Dragon. Before Red Dragon everything is kind of… repetitive and monster-of-the-week-y. I didn't dislike her but I only thought she was mildly funny in the manga until getting more invested in her in more dramatic arcs. I suppose people that don't like loud characters in anime would dislike her.

Haven't spokons figured it out long time ago? I think most of them have male artists too. Haikyuu and KuroBas definitely do. Golden Kamuy artist's first work was a spokon, too.

I feel like BL domination was far bigger back then, but it's probably because we weren't Japan and we weren't completely flooded with normies yet. I remember thinking it was so funny that BL sections in bookstores were bigger than the general manga, because other audiences didn't bring any money.

Realistically, I think female characters are treated this way by women because many of them were already born into this state of things, so they just consider it normal… I myself drew my OCs with poorly drawn balloon tits when I was very young. I was very into Fairy Tail… A lot of girls were, for some reason… Well, probably better than your average battle shounen in this regard back then, since it at least had a lot of guys who would regularly go topless.

Its a dishonest and retarded point. Okay there's 1 Noda for every 50 female authors who sexualize their own female characters for moids, cool story. You guys are the ones sperging at the anons upthread who wanted to complain about a random coombait scene.

No. 365362

Ryoko Kui and Hayashida Q can do whatever they want IMO because they're both female mangaka who to me feel like they approach depicting the female form with a real appreciation for the diversity of it IRL. As opposed to some female artists I see who are similarly horny for their female characters but possess a fictionalized moidish conception of what's attractive.

That you still managed to miss, apparently.

I liked that she was a silly goof alongside the others and didn't necessarily see it as a bad thing, or saw her comedic moments as being worse than the other character's. the mangaka seems to care a lot about her story.

Apothecary Diaries, it seems like a lot of guys actually are watching or at least checked it out because of the seinen label (moids don't know most anything for women that's not bland slice of life gets a shounen or seinen label) and for MaoMao's personality or the other female characters' boobs. It feels almost like the reverse of most big anime where they may throw a couple bones to their female audience but it's ultimately for men, Apothecary Diaries throws a couple bones to men but is ultimately for women and boy does that make the scrotes seethe.

A lot of the character-relationships are based around them belonging to the same era of racing or their "real life counterparts" being blood-related, so there's a lot of meta-shit going on if you know anything about this world. Also Cygames (IP owner) doesn't really mind sexualizing the umamusume to some degree (swimsuits skins with very low angle camera ultimate animations in the original game), they just forbid any derivative products and fan arts from portraying them in such way.

No. 366198

The cease and desist was very specifically directed at FANZA, which is a pornographic site. As far as we know, they are the only place bit with this restriction thus far. So the reasonable assumption atm is that this isn't a ban on doujin material overall, it's a crackdown on pornographic content of Frieren.

I really wish franchises aimed at children would do this, it's upsetting how easy it is to stumble across pornographic content of shows like Pokemon. Although I understand that children's franchises are among the most heavily profit-minded IPs so it's unlikely to happen.

really, just look at the faces she draws for the elf girl at every eating scene. the comic constantly make a huge point about feeding her things she doesn't want to eat but ends up liking, like she has eaten monsters billion times before, why keep going back again and again about how she doesn't want to eat something but is forced to and ends up liking it? it's perverted after certain point lmao

I'm agreeing that the author does have a fetish, I just don't think the elf was done as part of it, as the scenes where it's clearly a fetish have a very different vibe to them.

I don't think there's anything wrong with her having a feeder fetish if she does, but this is such a nothingburger lol. It's like you've never read a food manga before. The repetition of one character not wanting to eat this stuff is also innocuously common in a lot of food isekai series, which are genre-adjacent, like Campfire Cooking in Another World, among many others.
Additionally– if this was the case, you'd expect it to be more apparent in her numerous anthology works. But the only thing that really shows up a lot there is that she seems to be fascinated by the concept of eating dragons (shows up in two separate volumes).
There are definitely some food series where I'd also consider the author to have a feeder fetish (Meshinuma is an obvious one), but Ryoko Kui doesn't really do anything too weird in her published work.
You're reaching a lot.

No. 366243

when the demons are eating it does seem very charged; it fits because they're demons but they were making some horned up faces.
I agree the everyday eating is like nothing in dungeon meshi comparitively. Way hornier in other eating manga, literally an O-face every bite. There was also a popular cooking anime like 6-7 years ago that had super horny eating and a ton of cooking powerlevel stuff. I hated that.

No. 366247

I'm pretty sure it's being said to imply your lack of context. Adding >>366243 while I'm at it, the exaggerated eating to make stuff seem extra tasty isn't that weird when it comes to food in manga or anime, just look at Ghibli kek. I wouldn't really say DM goes over the top with it compared to the numerous series that combine food and ecchi elements.

It really was, but then I dropped it when I read the light novels and there was this whole segment out of nowhere where the MC was trying to buy a sex slave kek.
If you liked it though, Isekai Omotenashi Gohan is another good wholesome isekai cooking series. It's got a bit more variety in the recipes, too.

>The Fable and Bartender: Kami no Glass
I'll be watching this as well. The manga is one of my favorite culinary manga for the way it weaves life vignettes into each chapter's focus cocktail, and I can't believe it's getting a new anime after all this time. Highly informative series even for those uninterested in drinking BTW
I'm really excited that one of my favorite characters (picrel, Yuri Kinjo) will be animated this time around.

No. 366356

I love DunMesh and have been reading the series since the wee early days of its scanlation but I have to be honest now.
I feel about Marcille the way some of the nonnas ITT feel about Laios I think she is so boring and have never been able to get behind her ships either despite other lesbians being obsessed with her and Falin. I respect her character arc and all but I just don't care. Marcille's peak for me was at the end of the series when that gnome and the elf trivialized her lifelong worries telling her "I remember when I cared about that 50 years ago" and "young people think they know everything". It's definitely intended to be a moment putting things into grander perspective (as DunMesh is so delightfully prone to do) rather than a burn but it really summed up how uncompelling I personally found her motivations.
Also I think she looks boring I can't believe how horny artists are for her now. Is the bar that low. Is just being an elf enough.

men can be chubby and muscular at the same time. the artist went out of her way to draw him with a thicker layer of fat on his body than a normal muscular guy. he is 'soft'. it's especially noticeable because most anime men would qualify as lean or twinks. i love his body and think >>366360 is an annoying retard with shit taste for the record, but i also would call him a piggy.

i thought nonas were exaggerating when they complained about how weirdly sexual the bath scene was but i finally got to watch that episode today and damn they were right. kind of disappointed but whatever. i just hope to god they dont do the same with izutsumi but she has zero fanservice-y scenes in the manga so…
