What have m/a/nga have you been reading lately, /anime/? For me personally it was probably Beastars and Chainsaw Man, both until the last released chapter at the time and i haven't gotten to reading them again. Both are fairly enjoyable and interesting, although fair warning that the latter is rather angsty. It has some nice character designs, though. Spoiler for body horror.

Kumo Desu ga, Nani Ka? is super fun.
>>474 >>476 >>2181 It's really exploring some of the unique aspects of Devil society TBH. The most recent arc translated - the Music Festival - has a very interesting part in regards to music. In this it actually exceeds DxD in terms of more subtle Devil customs. I'm very much enjoying it.
Kaiju No.8 is pretty awesome. It's really fun so fr I wanna read Hard Boiled Cop and Dolphin, but it's only available on Viz and I'm not paying for that.
>>2202 >Kumo Desu ga, Nani Ka? <Reincarnated as a Spider Ooooh it's that one. LOL
>>1869 This shit is Black Dynamite tier. Some of Japan's contenet feels like its stuck in the 80s, I swear.

The manga/anime industry is inherently anti-art because the creators are incentivised to milk the fuck out of their series untill no one cares about them anymore - even to a more extreme degree than the Hollywood franchises and TV shows. I'm sure you could find a good story in most mangas, the problem is that it's buried under the 95% unnecessary bullshit and it lacks the proper execution because it's created under a lack of time. The deadline driven nature of comics prevents them from entering a higher level of art.
>>5316 Post is literally: Anime industry [read capitalism] leads to non-artistic products, as money > art for creators, just like any other mass media (movies, tv series, etc.) because pragmatism and greed over-rule artistic expression or actual effort in execution due to the time/budget constraints on artists (see >>626)

>>4332 >>4335 Streaming anime is a bad idea because, in addition to other things I don't know the exact details about (you can probably Google it), the quality is a lot lower. It's better to just torrent anime off of nyaa.si. If you're too lazy: twist.moe is better, it's less likely to mine your computer for bitcoins.
>>4675 >quality is a lot lower Unless you're looking for HD resolution and doing more than watching things casually 720p is perfectly fine resolution TBH I don't care enough to bother with torrents unless I intend to use a downloaded video for more than just a single viewing, cause deleting downloaded files is more of a hassle than computer scan deleting temporary files from streams.
>>4678 Torrents are literally communism. Don't be a fag and help everyone out by seeding high quality anime, if at least temporarily. If you're still going to stream at least use an adblocker.

Next season anime watchlist おたく 06/29/2020 (Mon) 22:21:04 No. 348 [Reply] [Last]
What is on your watchlist? Definitely going to watch: >Re zero season 2 Interested: >Deca-Dence <Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat. >Monster musume no oishasan <In the town of Lindworm where monsters and humans coexist, Dr. Glenn runs an exemplary medical clinic for monster girls with his lamia assistant, Sapphee. Whether receiving a marriage proposal by a centaur injured in battle, palpating the injury of a mermaid, or suturing the delicate wounds of a flesh golem, Dr. Glenn performs his job with grace and confidence. But when an unsavory character seeks to steal a harpy egg, how will the unflappable Dr. Glenn respond...? Also >Lindworm AAAAAHHAHA >Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e >After 2000 years has passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “inept”!? Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future. However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers. >Nihon Chinbotsu 2020 <Shortly after the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, a major earthquake hits Japan. Amidst the chaos, siblings Ayumu and Gou of the Mutou household, begin to escape the city with their family of four. The sinking Japanese archipelagos, however, relentlessly pursue the family. Plunged into extreme conditions, life and death, and the choice of meeting and parting—in the face of dreadful reality, the Mutou siblings believe in the future and acquire the strength to survive with utmost effort.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFaH7Q5UfnU&lc Just imagine this: You are an elite navy soldier, proven yourself in many battles, maybe even in the New World. Your strength and speed is low level superhuman, far stronger than regular humans even dream of becoming. Maybe you even show enough potential that your officers started training you in Haki or Rokushiki. Anyway, you are among the 100.000 best of the Navy, chosen to fight in a war against one of the World Governments greatest enemies. Your skill and speed have so far kept you unharmed in this monumental battle. You are rather close to Whitebeard himself. A truly frightening foe, several times a normal humans size, unbelievable strength and one of the most powerful devil fruits of all. In a world, with Giants, Hybrids, Fishman, mink & So many unknown types of people, and among them he's holding the title "THE STRONGEST MAN IN THE WORLD"; A walking, living legend. But he is old, sick and injured. Sengoku gives the order to finish him. This is the chance to prove yourself! You and your comrades have stood against unbearable odds before! Together you can surely beat the monster! Together you charge at him. Some of you stab Whitebeard, one fires a bazooka directly into his face. He starts to fall! Then, suddenly he straightens back up. His voice like an angry roaring thunder as he reminds you who he is. He takes one big swing with his giant blade. Doesn't even use his feared devil fruit ability, just the strength of his arm. A gust of wind, a huge shockwave rips your body from the ground. There is dust and rubble everywhere, you can't see anything, you just feel that you have absolutely no control over your body anymore. The dust clears and you realize that you are suddenly hundreds of meters above the ground, falling to certain death. How frightening that must be.
Can anyone link/post a good quality version of Jango's Dance Carnival? I've seen it in AMVs and remember it from way back when but I haven't been able to find a good quality version of it online. https://onepiece.fandom.com/wiki/Jango%27s_Dance_Carnival

>>5169 Something I forgot to add. One of the bits I remember from Del Toro's commentary track is the idea of creating different levels of colour and light to create scale. I think it came up during Gipsy vs. Leatherback. That scene had the surface level be saturated with the warm orange of the dock lights and the night sky overhead in cooler blacks and blues. I think it's present in old Siberia too albeit in a subtler fashion. Most of the sunlight is focused on the cracks between clouds while the rest of the scene is enveloped by the shade. The release version is lit too well and evenly above and below to achieve this effect. I also love the streaks of reflected light on the ice surface in the old version. Not something we'd be able to appreciate in real time, but it does make for a pretty wallpaper. All in all, using proto-Siberia as a general lesson, we have: >placing quantifiable elements in background and foreground for scale >having different levels of colour/light for scale >purposeful usage of weather and lighting to create appropriate atmosphere Emphasis on the last one especially during the day.
>>5234 >creating different levels of colour and light to create scale We see this really well in the initial Gipsy-Danger vs Knifehead fight as well.
>>5216 Could I replace watching the series for the first movie "A contact"? I'm really short of time and Ideon has been on my watchlist for a literal decade lol.
>>5249 No, it's not like the Gundam 0079 movies. It compresses the story too much and you won't be able to make sense of the plot. Ideon is a bit padded in the middle, but you really need to watch the series to appreciate Be Invoked.

>>5234 >comparison #4 - the pose Yet again, warmer colours traded for more brightness. I'd say the new one still looks good. An example of how the bright white can work. I think the trick lies in making it glint and shine without making it glossy. The battle damage looks nice and adds another layer of detail. I love the old one though. The morning/evening look and gentler shade that doesn't completely obscure sets a strangely positive mood. Comfy, even. >comparison #5 - group shot Not exactly the most well-regarded moment in either case. But new the excessive filter just drowns out the other jaegers' colours and the highly reduced shadows make it that extra video gamey. I like how the original had Gipsy mostly shadowed. It's interesting at least. I also found an edit which further darkened it. >>5235 Can't understate how important the wonderfully done water effects are too. The waterline practically acts as a divider and the water physics add to the sense of scale similarly to how the movements of the jaegers do. The Knifehead fight is visually the most raw and dour. The only sources of light are Gipsy's searchlights and the occasional lightning under the midnight storm. There's no music for the first half either. Great tone setter. It really drives home that the common emotion when facing a kaiju is pants-shitting terror, even with a jaeger. Whatever bravado Raleigh had is gone by the time he's begging his brother to shoot it dead. The most "fun" the movie got was when Gipsy arrived in Hong Kong. The arenas brightened up considerably, first with the blues and oranges of Leatherback and then the neon lights of Otachi. The earlier double event moved up from Knifehead through the addition of distant lights from the background cityscape. The final battle is lit by searchlights, vents, the trench and Breach itself. Darker, but still colourful. Whatever one can moan about "night" or "rain", there are unique qualities within each scene. There is variety even with the thematic constant of darkness and water. A variety that is strangely missing in Uprising, given how much freedom it had. I don't feel there's much to celebrate about daylight when they end up being the same shade of noon and the setpieces themselves already suffering from other problems. Not a striking sunrise or sunset. Not even the gloomy, cloudy Siberia made it. The way I see it, the first film used the night as a means to play around with light. Is it not the point then, that the day should be an opportunity to experiment with darkness?

>the author of Welcome to the NHK turned to spiritualism after shitting on religion on his works >also a decade of not doing anything at all later he's now making a fanservice-filled generic isekai with a hikki MC God it feels like Berserk all over again.
I find that a lot of people who spends their earlier years excessively and obsessively ranting and raving about religion and its 'evils' seem to be people who are just angry and hurt and in their later years turn to moderate versions of the things they lambasted.
>the author of Welcome to the NHK turned to spiritualism after shitting on religion on his works Considering NHK ni Youkoso was a loose self-biography this isn't very surprising, it's how they cope and why you find so many religious types on imageboards. Also it's a shame he sold out after being unable to write anything good or at all in so long.
Nothing's wrong with Buddhist spiritualism. It's good for mental health and to cope in neoliberal hellscape.

>>5220 I wonder if they'll ever return to touch on the fact that the powerless are considered inferior untermensch, or if it's all ok now since midoriya was a just lucky boy who got rewarded for being so fanatic. Is the author not setting any of this up to criticize the commercialization of heroism shit? Do they really think this world is nice just because people have powers? The world seems built so perfectly to be primed for the commentary to come in and hit hard, but it really doesn't seem like it actually wants to criticize like The Boys or Tiger & Bunny (if I'm remembering its plot correctly) do.
>>5224 Essentially yes, every time the author comes close to insightful commentary about the flaws of such a system they undermine it with "muh cool heroes are good so it's all fine!" >Tiger & Bunny Yes, finally someone else recognizes it as well.
>>5224 >>5227 Feel like he never made up his mind on whether he wanted it to be a fun escapist romp or a more realistic and critical take on superheroes. The half-assed take on some of these ideas doesn't scan. You can't clearly portray your protagonists as child soldiers in a corrupt system while also saying "it's okay, just enjoy them punching the bad guys". You can't show your villains as being mostly born from social failings but then also portray no positive attempts to change the system and expect the heroes' victories to ring as triumphant. You can't make one of your main heroes essentially a racist but then expect us to forget it completely because of how cool and strong he is. You can't portray the typical shonen "be the number one!" attitude as being destructive but then also have it be the whole core of the story. And so on. It could be REALLY interesting if MHA turned into a story about the kids trying to fix a blatantly broken society. Not even because it'd be the "leftist" way to do it, but because it would be a way to handle all these nuances with actual impact and meaning instead of just standard signifiers of depth. But it ain't happening.
Another thing to point out is that in the story they mention that the dvent of quirks caused social collapse and that "without quirks they'd be traveling space long ago". Except that's inane due to the sheer scope of abilities like gravity manipulation and other quirks that make things like scarcity of products a non-factor.
>>5250 Yeah, if I recall correctly, a whole century's meant to've passed since the advent of quirks. And this caused mass insurrection on a global scale, which the advent of superpowers realistically should do. But then with that fundamental correct setup, the author gets everything else so wrong. After a whole century, with quirks having finally proliferated through most of the world's population, the world just fucking returns to the exact same Liberal status quo of a century ago. The same status quo which couldn't handle the fucking quirks originally! The same status quo whose faults constantly show, and of course causes the problems of the series that, as previously remarked, are never actually resolved. Even the same modern status quo issue of Japan's shrinking population is present in a supposedly totally changed world, as I seem to recall Gran Torino mentioning it to Midoriya when he goes out to learn from him So the very foundational ideas of this fictional world suffer from the same issues as every plot in it. A set up that is so perfect for commentary, that it's as if it's been so totally squandered intentionally.
