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.

Psycho Pass is not outstanding when it comes to character design and voices (as much as I like the Kana, it doesn't really fit Akane), but since it's Gen I believe he can deliver a story even after the original got resolved. He did it with Madoka after all.

I have yet to see him deliver anything worthwhile. Well, aside from Saya maybe. Psycho Pass S1 had medicore-high-schooler level of writing.

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?

Ugh, I typed a really long reply but it got eaten because of wrong embed. Fuck everything.

Overall I'll cut it extra short and I'll just say I liked what they did with the characters and how they focus on why they are playing the game (because focusing on the whys is always good) but I felt the anime spread itself thin and the plot was felt downright silly.
Oh yeah, the embed. I was actually disappointed by the OST considering it's Kajiura Yuki. Reminded me why you should never use vocals in songs you plan to reuse. There were some good things (embed related) but overall I didn't like it.
Overall it reminded me a lot of Noir, it's like they are twins really. Both made by Bee Train, both directed by Mashimo Kouichi, both OST by Kajiura Yuki. Same artstyle, same amtposhere, similar soundtrack. I didn't like either, heh.

Did I mention Mimiru was deliciously brown?

I'll agree on that, the overall plot was pretty dumb and Mimiru was indeed quite deliciously brown. Anime needs more characters like her.

Finished Otome Youkai Zakuro. I was specficially told to stay way from it ever since it aired (sounded like it could be neat based on Autumn chart). It was nowhere near as bad as people made it out to be. Not like it's a masterpiece either but it's decent enough.

Part of what I liked about it is how it panders to my tastes with it's Meiji-esque setting and general shinto stuff so I'm hardly objective here. But I've got to say that I dig the setting and found the characters to be very likeable. The production values are pretty good and it has a great cast.
Unfortunately I didn't care for the plot. At all. I wonder how much of it is just anime writer's fanwank seeing as the manga is still ongoing and the series isn't exactly new. The show was very casual about some really grimdark stuff, felt kinda weird.

Good series overall, though, can't say I regret spending my time on it.

Finished Ristorante Paradiso, too. This one was on my backlog for a longer while. I was pretty sure it's a noitaminA series, turns out in aired on Fuji TV's short-lived Noise block, though (the only other two series which aired in that block were Michiko to Hatchin and Aoi Hana).

Great show. Liked it a lot. A perfect example that a good OST can make a show by itself. Especially if it's coupled with an OP which sets the perfect mood before the ep even starts. The show seemed to lose focus for ~two eps midway through the series but it's nothing major. It's a tad naive and the characters aren't very complex but that's for the best in this case - trying to force some serious drama would ruin it.
I don't have much to say about this one other than the fact that I recommend it. I'll probably pick up Antique Bakery next.

I recently got into an argument with a room full of around sixty anime fans. The topic of "how can we support shows we want" came up. People actually thought that by buying localised, translated DVDs and such, they could affect the anime market in Japan.

The statement I made was as follows: "We are not the target demographic for anime and manga. We are separated from them by half a planet, a language, an economy, and a culture." I was immediately booed and people started yelling about Space Dandy and "how the American anime industry and Japanese anime industry are becoming one entity"

I backed it up by a disclaimer that "it is okay for western animation and Japanese animation to draw inspiration from each other, but American animation will never be designed for a Japanese audience, and Japanese animation should never be designed for an American audience."

I also said it is not okay for people to think that a product of another culture should also cater to their sensibilities. I got booed at this point. People brought up social justice and said Japan sucks etc etc.

Is this an example of Western Supremacist thinking conditioned into society by media and education? Why does it always have to fucking fit your sensibilities and morals?

I really just want to fucking boot a lot of people out of anime fandom sometimes. I really do. These stupid Sarkeesian Effect shitscrapes. If you don't like it, get the fuck out. We don't want bullshit western tropes shoehorned into anime. We use anime to escape that fuckery.

So what are your thoughts? What would make people think it's okay for anime to become another bullhorn for Amerocentric bullshit? Is anime becoming, or in risk of becoming, influenced by the American market? Or is this just yet another case of group narcissism and internalised nationalism?

That's strange, there's no way you could have missed the Americanisation of Europe, yet you called it a 'percieved' cultural invasion.

This is strange.
>> No. 21104 [Edit]

Okay, my bad, I shouldn't have said 'perceived'. Maybe it's real. I don't know. I don't give a fuck.

The real problem isn't whether it's real or not. The real issue is that there are 10302203 sites on the net where you can discuss that kind of garbage and one site entirely dedicated to it (tubmlr). I suggest you keep it containted there.

Obviously not because the animation studio (and so the director who works at the animation studio) get their share of the money NO MATTER if the show is a financial success or not.
The only people who can lose money are the investors and the people who make up with the concept, not the studio itself.
You don't know how the industry works, read that article: >>21021
>> No. 21028 [Edit]
The point is you can't hope for a second season if you only buy licensed stuff. When you buy licensed stuff 90% of the dosh goes to the foreign publishers, but not to the japanese publishers who decide if they want to invest in another season or whatever.
>> No. 21029 [Edit]
If I wouldn't be able to pirate I would never buy merchandise and manga because I couldn't see the show in the first place, thus I would support the industry even less than when I pirate.
Do you understand what I mean? Just because I pirate does not mean I instantly damage the industry. I easily make up for it by importing lotsa stuff.

>What's the point of a cliff-hangar episode end if the preview spoils what is going to happen?

To SM's defence it's hardly the first show to do that. Me, I never watch previews so the cliffhanger wasn't lost on me... not that it mattered because I genuinely don't care much what'll happen (to begin with nothing could happen either way).

Man, such mixed feelings here. This is such a weird situation, too. I'm sure most of people who watch this are fans of the old SM. Thing is this is nothing like old SM. Whether it's like the mnaga I can't say since I'm not familiar with the source material but I bet it is. This creates a pretty amusing situation, though, as I'm sure I'm not the only person who prefered the old SoLesque version: people like SM but they don't like Takeuchi SM.
