im finally watching panty & stocking cuz my gf is making me and its actually good and im surprised how much i like it. its funny and pretty and the art's fucking good and the music actually rules

so many western shows make thinly veiled politically charged racist/homophobic/transphobic statements and act like it's transgressive and mock people who are offended and yet panty & stocking is legit transgressive and frequently very gross and uncomfortable but buuut it never stoops to that level

anyway i think with this ive basically resigned myself to the fact that ill never consistently watch an anime again unless someone makes me lol

I'm really enjoying Aggretsuko, at least so far. It's less anime though and more kind of cartoony? Still, it's very good.

Dragon Ball is hit or miss to me. Liked Resurrection F, and the game Advanced Adventure.

My lasting favorite happens to be the original Pokemon. While riddled with flaws, I was there in 1999 to treasure it for what it is. Actually, despite similarly obvious fondness for Lum, I didn't discover Urusei Yatsura until some ten years after Pokemon.

Well, I mean

What other good ones are there, really? ohohoho

Also I can't believe you forgot to mention that I recently watched all of Dragon Ball/DBZ, the ultimate noob-tier anime

I’m personally curious about Akakichi no Eleven. It’s gotta be good, right? Anything made by Ikki Kajiwara is wholesome right?

The day Jade finds a new anime to watch that she likes is when hell freezes over.

as mentioned earlier, gonna watch LWA next month, but I'm not sure how to watch it. This is your fault for getting me into that show, you two.

I've been watching this regularly since a year back or so, and I enjoy it for what it is.

It's not groundbreaking in anyway, but it's more Dragon Ball, with all the ups and downs that that comes with.

It's uh, pretty much what I expected. Though considering I only really have a cursory knowledge of the rest of the DB series it's a wonder I'm not totally lost.

im not big on anime/manga but heres my outdated myanimelist anyways..! https://myanimelist.net/profile/ngoao

my current fav are code geass and mushishi. i also love show by rock, i dont know if thats on the list or not yet haha.

i rewatched code geass for the third time last summer and rewatched madoka magica for the second time a few months ago.

i will probably rewatch code geass with my siblings again at some point if i can get them on board with it hehe. :9

I still have some backlog that I eventually intended to get through, but I don't know if they're available on CR or anything and I'm too lazy to check:

- that one series with the angels or something? I want to say the words started with HR but I forget
- celestial method (someone may have recommended me this)
- ???

I feel like I'm forgetting some other stuff.

haibane renmei and re:creators were the two I was missing.

Unfortunately, at least the latter one isn't easily accessible, so I guess I need to go find some magnet links.

Little Witch Academia rules, I highly recommend watching it (both the OVAs and the TV series)

i'm watching little witch academia and it is indeed good. lord knows if i'll finish it though, i'm really terrible at motivating myself to watch anime

i've never seen madoka but i've realllllly wanted to for a long time. the only issue is that my gf wants to watch them in movie form and that requires 4 hours of time commitment so rip

i have like 500 animes on my computer that i've never seen and i really need to get around to watching them (i've only seen like 5 of the shows in that pic)

The only anime I watched recently was Madoka Magica. I may give Little Witch Academia a watch one day, possibly sometime next month. Hopefully that one turns out to be good, heard it was good from someone.

I think one of the biggest hurdle the anime industry needs to get over is region-locking as well as how they handle and sell off rights to distribution.


Absolutly, and DVD / BD distribution is not much better. Now should I get the UK, US or German release of something? Which will feature what extras, and who had the better resources for translation etc?

Or I could just order a bunch of Japanese LDs and try to understand the contents somehow....
