Am I the only person who is massively excited that there is going to be new a whole new season of Haruhi airing in only a few short weeks? This is a Haruhi pic from the new season, she looks mega cute and her skirt is just the right length too.
There are a bunch more of these pics over on the Haruhi board at desuchan

the way she says turkey makes me swoon

i am also wondering about her parents.

honestly i enjoy this anime. its cute and im interested where it goes (why its called the disappearance and if it will have anything relating to the original story)
I'm wondering if this is some weird alternate timeline. Never actually read the manga.

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?

Alright I finally finished it a few days ago, after a year and half.
Even if it took me that much time to watch 50 episodes I enjoyed it. Really nice and cute cartoon, near the end there are also a few slightly more serious stories. One of them even made me tear up.

Started watching Tsuyokiss off and on not too long ago. Right off the bat I gotta say this show has some really bizarre use of eyecatches. They'd inject eyecatchs randomly for scene transitions, and some of them can be really bizarre given the situation it might be interrupting. Like for example with a scene involving a character who's struggling with their father's death and replacement which cuts to a girl dressed as a cowboy ridding a mechanical bull for a few seconds.
On that note, it seemed like there were some really bizarre and completely out of context scenes at times, like with two characters signing about peanutbutter out of nowhere for some reason in a forth wall breaking style. Took me a few ep to realize it but it seems the show tries to employ some fake/joke advertizement. I didn't notice at first because the eyecatchs get used constantly so without keeping an eye on the time track you could easily mistake the placement of the CM break.

Anyways, show itself is decent in a kinda old school way. Really feels like a mid 2000's anime and has that charm that comes with stuff from that time period. At first I couldn't stand the antagonist and really couldn't understand how someone like that could retain their position as student council president while acting the way they do. I mean, she completely refuses to allow a drama club and torments the character trying to get it approved, but had no problem having a stage and set made just for a trail performance which means budget isn't the issue. Then it hit me that she's trying to get the club approved without having anyone else interested in being a member, which kinda makes the student council president in the right... even if they are a massive cunt. That aside the show is very much 'fine'. The animation is 'fine' the voice acting is 'fine' the art is 'fine' etc. The show isin't horrible, but it's not great either, it's just.. fine.

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.

Why would you insinuate I'm unaware of this? How is it even relevant to analyzing the critical content?

Is this the conclusion of your defense of NS as a standalone thing to be enjoyed in itself? I don't really blame you; shitflinging is about all you can realistically do in this situation.
>> No. 22864 [Edit]
Like I said just go make a Trigger thread but honestly I can't even take you seriously anymore, I just keep imagining you watching Ninja Slayer of all things and taking notes.
>> No. 22865 [Edit]
I will be entirely honest with you. I didn't watch a cumulative 6 minutes of it; it's unwatchable shit. It was made clear what Trigger intended to do from the start. I can only hope it was done in effort to collectively troll those who have recently latched onto the studio as anime saviours. Budget constraints could also be a possibility and making shit so terrible that it could only be interpreted as satirical is one of the few moves they could make in that position. I expect the visual splendor to make a triumphant return in EP 2 or 3, assuming the former condition is the reason we got that episode.

It was clear what they were doing with that scene in 5 seconds. If you would have needed notes to arrive at that interpretation I feel genuinely sorry for you. There's no reason to take this elsewhere as it hasn't really been going anywhere from the start.
>> No. 22866 [Edit]
I'm pretty sure it's just a gag show like Inferno Cop was considering the actual TV anime isn't until next year. All their actual animation efforts are probably going towards Little Witch Academia 2 right now.

I do wonder exactly what they plan to do with the TV version.

>if the pacing wasn't so fast

thats why i don't watch this show, i just can't keep up.
i'd try to see if i could get my player to operate at 80% speed or whatever, but i'm already watching too much stuff to keep up with this season.
>> No. 22810 [Edit]

Well I meant time-wise. Content-wise there might be more than that, yeah, but that's just how Teekyuu rolls. I think that's a silly way to measure it anyway - it's about as arbitrary as measuring shows by how much animation they actually have when you're trying to calculate how many OVAs you'd make out of them.
If Teekyuu wasn't as fast paced as it is it'd lose its charm to begin with.
>> No. 22811 [Edit]
True enough. Teekyuu wouldn't be Teekyuu if it wasn't like an anime created by people on cocaine and played on fast forward.

This first episode was pretty fun. You can always count on Sanrio to make something really cute.
I also liked how the opening tied into the opening scene rather than just an opening.

I'm having trouble keeping up with this season so far. Don't know if its to much anime or too much drugs, but its keeping me amused, although a bit tense as well.
