A thread for anime you have something to say about but don't want to make a thread for. Thought that this might be a good alternative to the seasonal anime thread and encourage people to post more.

Interesting interpretation of the Tales of the Heike directed by Yamada Naoko in collaboration with screenwriter Yoshida Reiko. The art direction is engaging and novel, it retains faithfulness to aesthetics of the Heian era while simultaneously displaying Science Saru's distinctive style.

I ended up hooking up a mouse and keyboard and it's comfortable now. The mouse is some wireless one I dug up in my box of electronics and the keyboard is wired but placed on a convenient stool. Finally I can watch anime like you're supposed to, in a well-lit room and seated far from the screen.

The official website for Shinkansen Henkei Robo Shinkalion Z, the second installment of the train transforming robot anime franchise Shinkalion, has announced that Rei Ayanami will appear in its forthcoming crossover episode with the Evengelion franchise to be aired in Japan on September 17, 2021.
As reported, Shinji Ikari to be voiced by his original voice cast Megumi Ogata has been also confirmed to appear in the episode. Ayanami previously made her guest appearance in the 31st episode of the first Shinkalion TV anime aired in August 2018, along with Soryu Asuka Langley. We don't know at this point if Asuka will also appear again, or if they'll have dialogue spoken by the original voice actresses.
The crossover episode will also feature "Oni Eva" (Demon Eva). It is a giant monster created from the statue of Eva-01 at the Toei Kyoto Studio Park by an unknown enemy named Teoti.

Edit:
Just for some context, going into Aria I expected I would enjoy it a lot. It seemed like a show well suited to my tastes. I enjoyed Amanchu immensely, and watching it was the trigger that finally got me to try out Aria. In theory Aria seems like it would be a great anime, but its execution is lacking. I wanted to like it.

Also regarding the OST, I am a little negatively biased because I tend not to enjoy guitar-like instruments as much as the average person.

Aria seems like it doesn't explore its setting enough to fully realize its potential. The lack of detail in the visuals is also a significant aspect of its wasted potential.

I don't know if it could be useful for you, but Aria didn't start to grow in me until 2nd season, first season also gave me a general "meh" feeling. That doesn't mean 2nd season is substantially better or different, but it's how it happened, it takes time.

I once read that the first season is an introduction to the cast, while the second season is an introduction to the world it takes places. The third season is about the development of the cast.
Personally I agree with this, I loved season 1 but it is surely the weakest of the 3.

A lot of people have echoed this sentiment to me, about the later seasons being better. A higher budget could certainly go a long way.

I will probably give them a try in a few years. I'd rather let the memories I have of season 1 fade a little so that the content will be more novel to me. I'm more likely to enjoy it that way.

It is a historically significant SoL classic, so I feel obligated to watch it in any case.

>it's a show that I strongly believe was designed for the viewer to engage with
I didn't see a reason to look deeper into it since I didn't enjoy my initial experience enough to want to. Intentionally making an anime where the viewer is supposed to get most of their enjoyment from it by researching its themes, puts the entire point of anime and storytelling as a whole into question.
>relationship with her mother
The one she never knew and had no conception of? I didn't get to this before, but the whole, bad guy hypnotizes good guy, good guy's friends try to snap them out of it and fail, good guys try again with the power of friendship/love or whatever and succeed this time thing, really annoyed me. It was one the most bothersome, predictable parts of flifla.
>the beauty of flip flappers comes from the way it interweaves all these three layers together
Haphazardly?
>for a show wholly centered around the notion of perception and the subjective nature of experience, should it really be any other way?
Have you seen Paprika or Perfect Blue? I think those do similar things better. The movie format is generally better for this kind of thing in my opinion since we don't expect to get too attached to characters. More emphasis can be placed on themes for themes sake since it's a low dosage. SEL though did it better too since it was tighter, more focused, and managed to have more chemistry between Alice and Lain.

>she gains that self of identity and independence
I know that's what the show said practically point blank. They basically tacked that on at the end after her friends break her out of hypnosis(if she were really more independent, wouldn't she not need them to save her?). I didn't feel it over the course of the series though. She was also still just as boring by the end.

> after her friends break her out of hypnosis
If I recall correctly, it wasn't actually "hypnosis" it was just that Cocona was physically trapped in that tree thing, representative of the fact that she was still mentally trapped by her dependence on her mother. To quote from the doc

> One day she leaves her comfort zone, opens up to another girl, and goes on an adventure with her. However, what dwells deep within Cocona is her lost relationship with her mother. Cocona, afraid of failure, runs away back into her mother’s care, but she realizes that her new relationships aren’t something she can - or wants to - give up, and that her friends aren’t letting her go that easily either. She accepts who she is and becomes her own person.

And in particular in that scene we see that even though Papika herself is the motivator, it is Cocona who ultimately has to accept and unlock the tree herself.

There's also beautiful symmetry here since in the very next episode we get a flashback that shows that very tree thing is where Papika was trapped after Mimi disappeared and fragmented pure illusion – the meaning here is less clear, but I interpreted this is as the fact that Papika was ridden with guilt (since as I recall it was her idea to escape). And this time it was Cocona who helped Papika overcome that.

>bad guy hypnotizes good guy, good guy's friends try to snap them out of it
Except in this case, it _has_ to be Papika and Yayaka that help Cocona defeat Mimi. On a psychological level Cocona only overcomes her issues with the help of _both_ Papika nad Yayaka, and so it is only right that the two team up with Cocona to finally overthrow Mimi (the symbolic interpretation of this should be obvious).

And more generally, pure illusion is by definition symbolic. You can't separate the two, and everything that happens in pure illusion must be interpreted through that lens since pure illusion is the very dream-like subconscious.

>her dependence on her mother
Who she never even knew. What dependence could you have for a person you never even met? A deep-seeded longing for her mother isn't very well-established either.
>it wasn't actually "hypnosis"
She acted hypnotized and not aware of her surroundings, so for all intents and purposes, she was hypnotized.
>the symbolic interpretation of this should be obvious
Yeah, it's the power of love and friendship. This theme conflicts with "becoming your own person" a bit. Sure "she must go out of the tree herself", but she doesn't think to do it on her own. She might as well be swapping her mother for her friends and gay lover.
>But that's what every episode basically was?
The in universe explanation is that Pure Illusion is another dimension that actually exists. This is a misdirection. All of the magical girl, collecting rocks just because stuff was also a needless distraction. A straight forward "here's a neural meguffin, lets use it and see what happens" set-up, would have served better.
>everything that happens in pure illusion must be interpreted through that lens
Unless I'm back in english class and getting a grade, I want to enjoy my stories first, then look at them with an uber-deep, symbolic lens.

I was reminded of Pure Illusion when I came across the works of Neville Goddard. He was in the camp of those who believe that reality can be influenced by thoughts. (This idea is also found in certain magick communities, and is presumably the basis for things like manifestation/law of attraction). The idea that reality is a sort of canvas we all influence (whether we consciously realize it or not), that things change fluidly and regularly without our noticing, and that the gaps are filled in by our collective logic feels like a very direct, literal representation of the idea of pure illusion.

Of course a natural question is to what extent is this true. Putting aside the question of free will for a moment, we have control over our own thoughts and feelings (and this can be strengthened through things like meditation) so it's true in that limited sense. And we can of course influence the world through our actions, and deeply desiring a situation will make you more observant/likely to act so as to establish that situation so it's true in that limited sense. And things like the placebo effect show that mere (unconscious) intention itself is sufficient to effect some change within the realm of your body. I think anything stronger than that is wishful thinking at best, delusional fantasy at worst; but ironically fully committing to that on both a conscious and unconscious level might make it more likely for you to act on things you wouldn't have acted on before.

They started off with one of the most thought provoking films of all time, did a half-remaster, half-sequel and the culmination of almost 20 years of waiting is... A fucking _anime_.
It's not creative but awful, it's not great but bland. It's pure, concentrated _passable_. They wrote an ending to a franchise as important as Evangelion in the most pedestrian of ways. They might as well have released it straight to video, because it got an OVA treatment in the writing department and no amount of render-farm bullshit can save the two and a half-hour run-time from the clearance bin.

>Why does Aqua keep calling the main character a hikki-NEET? Isn't being a NEET or hikki naturally incompatible with being a high school student?
Because the characters were originally older in the web novel but were aged down in adaptations. Aqua looking down on Kazuma for being a hikki-NEET makes more sense when Kazuma is college-aged, and Megumin's chuunibyou behaviour actually looks odd for her age like it's supposed to when she's seventeen rather than fourteen.

I have conducted a thorough analysis of anime from the year 2016. The primary purpose of this analysis is to identify works which have artistic merit, and to classify the nature of that artistic merit. Secondarily, my intent here is to rank the works in terms of their superiority in various categories. This will allow for comparison with other surveys of 2016 anime. This analysis is an expression of my own personal opinions and did not involve input from anyone else. I did this for my own intellectual and personal satisfaction, but I also hope that others may find it interesting or useful. At the very least, maybe this will generate some interesting discussion. Additionally, if you're looking for anime to watch, you can peruse through the specific categories I've provided to identify works that are likely to suit your tastes. 

Only anime which started airing in 2016 are considered here. Meaning that anime for which the first season aired before 2016 are not considered (ex. neither Hibike Euphonium nor Love Live are candidates here). The considered anime are evaluated on the basis of all seasons that have aired (not just the first season in 2016). Movies are not included unless they are related to a TV anime (ex. Bungou Stray Dogs). I am conducting reviews for other years using this same system. Annual reviews are typically done as soon as the year ends, but I believe my methodology here is superior for conducting reviews of years retrospectively. Furthermore, classifying the year's best works only by season/genre I find is an ineffective method for identifying meritorious works, so I've included more-specific categories. 

Categories and their results are listed below. Winning titles for each category are separated by commas, with the superior titles being listed first. For the genre categories I've provided two answers (the winning title followed by the runner up). However, polls for anime of the season and anime of the year typically list many top candidates in their results, so I've followed a similar procedure with my results here. For the anime of the season and year results, I've listed the top-5 candidates in order of superiority, with the winning title listed first and the progressively lesser titles listed afterwards.

Regarding the genre results, there are a couple important

I don't think it's something that really needs defense per se (art is inherently subjective and in the eye of the beholder, after all); the discussion just gave me an opportunity to flesh out thoughts I've wanted to for some time.


>>35812
> You might as well be saying something isn't supposed to be "good".
I think that goes to the core of what art is, which is deep into the philosophy realm I don't know much about. But yes, I think criticism of shows reveals more about the mismatch between the value function of the viewer and the one optimized for by the show, than it does reveal something inherent about the show itself. Of course, even this indirect information can still be useful for determining what you ultimately care about: whether the show will work for you.

Or in other words for every flaw you can find in a show there's probably someone else who considers that flaw crucial to his enjoyment.

Thank you for providing this analysis. It's a breath of fresh air, too many people trot out the cliche that anime went to shit after [year the speaker got into anime]. If you did this whole analysis again for a different year, would you pick an adjacent year or one farther away?

I was a little surprised that you considered 2016 better than 2017. Perhaps I shouldn't be quick to judge, since I've seen far fewer 2016 anime than 2017, but to me 2017 had some pretty strong offerings: Made in Abyss, Kemono Friends, Youjo Senki, Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou, Little Witch Academia, Isekai Shokudou, Urara Meirochou, and Mahoutsukai no Yome for example. Though on second thought, eight is not many when you're comparing an entire year to another.

You call Fantasy and Mystery/Psychological the weakest genres but in >>35786 it is instead fantasy and slice of life that you talk about. Could you elaborate on why mystery/psychological was weak?

Regarding the presentation, using bbcode would have helped, and it's also much easier to read if you separate vertically rather than horizontally. (Picture related.) Don't be afraid to take up the vertical space. Well, that's questionable, but definitely use the bbcode so it's immediately obvious which text is and isn't anime titles. You can use more posts so you can separate the broad topics, e.g. a post for best by season + best in year (and the order of those should be swapped so you increase in granularity of the categories as your whole analysis proceeds), then a post for the genre awards, then for the characteristics awards, etc. From where the posts break up the text, I get the impression it was only post length limits that determined the splits.
Regarding the honourable mentions, as a reader I don't see much of a point in having that section. Without knowing why a specific anime got a mention, it becomes just a list of the anime that did not make the top three for whichever award you're listing it for. Perhaps you could restrict it to one anime per award and have a sentence or two explaining why that one is worth mentioning but not worth putting in the top three. Another approach is to put th

Thanks for this helpful response and taking the time to read everything.

>If you did this whole analysis again for a different year, would you pick an adjacent year or one farther away?
I'm doing it again for 2017 right now, and plan to do it for 2018 after that. 2017 doesn't seem to have as many completion-worthy (for me) shows as 2016, so I should be able to get through it relatively quickly and post an analysis within a year from now. Hopefully life doesn't get in the way.

You're absolutely right that 2017 has some exceptional titles (I've already seen most of the ones you listed), but 2016 will be hard to beat in terms of the total volume of high-quality anime. I'd gladly be proven wrong though, and hopefully I will discover some more 2017 titles that I rate highly.

>You call Fantasy and Mystery/Psychological the weakest genres but in >>35786 it is instead fantasy and slice of life that you talk about. Could you elaborate on why mystery/psychological was weak?
Sure, I probably should have elaborated on this. Basically, for mystery/psychological there were very few shows that I liked which fit into the genre. Joker Game was pretty much the only title that had a significant mystery element to it, hence it's the top of the category. I needed a runner-up, and Bungou Stray Dogs seemed like the only reasonable option because it does sometimes have mystery aspects. The only other title I considered for tha

Every other anime ED ~ slow music, static shots, minimal or looping animation because the purpose of the ED is to list credits.

The soundtracks for Kimagure Orange Road are brilliant, I've been listening to them for a while now.

I'm partial to those EDs that have a note of sadness and ronery feeling in them. They're especially great to listen to when feeling disillusioned.
