Lately I've been thinking we need a miscellaneous thread. We've got so many threads for specific topics, but no place for general anime discussion that might not necessarily be about any of the currently airing anime. This would be a thread for things that people don't feel is worth creating a new thread for, or bumping a really old one for.

Let's have a thread for screencaps! Please try to avoid spoilers, and when you post something spoilersome at least mark it as a spoiler pic properly.

In this thread, we discuss and point out regular cliches and common occurrences found in anime.
a example would be the well known protag seat, but there are many out there, some more obvious than others.

Just to start things off, this is one I've been seeing a lot of.
Characters who fail to notice obvious things directly in front of them, often times needing someone to point it out for them.

Weather responds to the emotional state of the main characters like clockwork. Rain specifically will commence when a main character is sad, depressed, or troubled.

Rather than wasting time creating teru teru bozu, characters should find who ever is sad and cheer them up.

I saw it even though I never played the game. It's not bad, I heard the story is just like in the game and in my opinion it's nostly eye candy.
The animators did a good job, it looks sharp in 1080p and there's no 3dcg.

I feel you kinda missed my point. Every series since Heartcatch had a pretty clear cut 'theme'. Some seasons before Heartcatch had that, too, most notably Splash Star's focus on nature - through Cures (their names and even attacks), through fairies (and their ... country?) and through enemies.

Heartcatch had some consistency in naming - mostly related to flowers - and in enemies - all related to desert. Desert generals make the flowers in human hearts wilt. It's very clear cut.
Same goes for Suite, very strong music theme.
Smile had no consistency when it came to naming Cures, sure, but everything else was strongly related to fairly tales - both the 'country' they were trying to save as well as the enemies.
Dokidoki was the weakst of the bunch as the 'trumps' theme didn't really shine through. Cures are related to that, yes, Mako-pi comes from Trump Kingdom and occasionally they use some attacks related to cards (Straight Royal Flush was the name I think?) but again, it feels kinda weak.

But even though it was weak in Dokidoki it was there. Happiness Charge doesn't have anything like that. Hime's country is something completely random, enemy generals are completely all over the place and there's no pattern in naming Cures. The theme is completely gone.

There are bigger problems with the series, sure. Doesn't change the fact that having no theme doesn't really help the series in the slightest.
>> No. 20521 [Edit]
I realized you were commenting on the theme of the series, and yes this season doesn't really have one. I simply wanted to point out that the names have a tendency to be random, but you make a good point in that while they aren't clearly related to each other they do still relate to the theme of the series... usually. As such I suppose they are related after all if they have the same source. Makes me wonder if black & white are named as such due to the clear cut nature of who's good and bad in precure (jk).

It's possible the theme of this season is meant to be love/romance with that being reflected in cure lovely's names as >>20515 has pointed out.
>> No. 20525 [Edit]
It's amazing how fun HaCha can be when it's focused on something that is not putting Hime on a pedestal and on the center of everything.

Next week looks fun too. A Yuuko episode is always welcomed.

I'd say it actually is. Thats what got me to watch it and I think she's perfectly capable of carrying the show on her own. Not that the other characters are necessarily unlikable. mc takes a bit of getting used to I think since he comes off a bit bland and boring at first, but over all it's a fun colorful cast.

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

It's a story about the first woman in the armed forces. The only thing even remotely resembling realistic about it is that the woman is a tomboy.

The premise is retarded, 3/4 of the events don't make sense from either a sociological or a physics standpoint (especially when they involve guns in any way, shape, or form), and still the author goes forth to make a 3-kingdoms-esque subplot with the Libraries, the military, and the police.

That said, the tomboy is very, very pure and incredibly cute.
The art is very well done, especially the lips on this girl. Her VA is delightful as well, though I'm too used to her other roles and this girl's personality only half matches what I end up projecting onto her.
>> No. 20626 [Edit]
Yeah, Magipoka is my favorite anime. I'm still waiting for a season 2. There is still some new content being made for it. Seismic's Liru game is coming in October and someone just released a brand new Liru dakimakura you may still be able to pre-order.

Just a word of warning... The last episode may leave you in tears. Also don't forget to watch the 3 ova's.

the dangerous moment when, less than a week after you dropped that show that you decided you didn't like, the next ep comes out and boredom disguises itself as curiosity and temps you to watch it.
stay strong! don't watch that shitty anime!
you're better than that!

I don't even know if they've tried that before. I just thought that a bunch of versions of a single guy trying to force themselves as the 'main character' of themself while the real main character finds out that he isn't the main character but a version of him and just runs from the ones that are trying to legitimize themselves as the true 'main line'. It obviously deals with string theory stuff, but I would like it to expand outside of that a little to keep it fresh with concepts, even if mine aren't.

It could be interesting maybe, but I doubt I could make something that people would like. I have very shite story telling skills, even when I try to describe things it sounds boring and uninteresting, even if the main thing isn't.

Stupid question: Can someone explain to me why the fucking bear suit from full metal fumoffu is in there? I can't imagine them ripping off the design like that, that's just shameless, so I suppose it's a crossover?

Probably just wanted to do a call back to their better days.
Considering they're both kyoani I don't know why they couldn't just keep the original design. As is it looks like something a different studio would changed for copyright reasons.
