A half length show starring Hotaru as a distinctly unmagical girl and ditzy senpai. Seems like it might be based on a 4-koma type comic, first ep was pretty entertaining. Every time she pulls a trick, it gets botched resulting in unintended fanserivce instead of magic

Malice Doll is a 2001 cgi ova series written and created by Chiaki J. Konaka, who also worked on Lain and Ghost Hound. This is an anime which I had almost no interest in and thought was going to be a difficult viewing experience. I hate cgi, and on top of that this is cgi from 2001. After powering through my initial disdain for the visuals, which are as expected, very primitive, and mostly made up of dark, muddy colors too, I was pleasantly surprised with everything else.

Malice Doll is an interesting little experiment which aimed to explore what being human means. That's nothing that hasn't been done before, but the angle which this show takes is almost never seen. Malice Doll questions whether being human is really better than being a machine, and from my point of view, it seems to lean more on the side of machines. It goes very far to show the ugliness of humanity.

Again, the visuals are lackluster, but I appreciate how cgi conveys the inhumanness of the characters. The screen was so dark sometimes that I could barely tell what was going on. There's a lot of sexual and gory imagery to enjoy and being in cgi didn't take much away from its impact. At certain points, behind the limitations of cgi, I felt similar directing to Lain's.

This is an ova series, so it doesn't have much time to develop the characters and get us invested in them. Considereing the animation medium, that's probably for the best. There's more that could have been done with the themes, but I bet since 2001 there's been anime where machines become human I just don't know about. The ending is almost identical to Lain's. I would recommend watching Malice Doll if you like obscure, old stuff with some substance.

Has anyone here watched this before?

What are some themes from anime which you disagree with? A lot of times when I'm watching anime, I feel as if the characters are being as mouth pieces for the creators. This is a problem in itself, since I think it's better to let your audience think for themselves, but it's especially annoying when the message is something I think is bullshit or just doesn't make sense. Kokoro Connect is one of the worst examples I can think of. I don't even remember what they were trying to say, but I couldn't stomach how they did it. The teacher arch in the World Only God Knows was just confusing. Are overbearing teachers a good or bad thing? Did Keima just say what the teacher wanted to hear? I didn't get it.

Mob Psycho 100 is a show I really like, but when I take a step back, its message doesn't make all that much sense. On top of that, Mob is a favorite show of "politically conscious" "anime fans" who like to criticize actual otaku. Basically, the shows says average relationships with average people are the most valuable thing a person can have, nobody is better than anybody else because of natural aptitudes, and having ambitions that could affect others or wanting to change how the world works is juvenile and foolish, so growing up means being content with the status quo.

We never learned how Claw planed on ruling the world. For all we know, they would have done a better job than the governments that currently exist. There's no reason given to think otherwise, except that Claw is just made up of "average people". It's like the show is implying the current governments have a divine right to power and officials have magic governing powers which separate them from "average people". Why? Governments came to exist through brute force to begin with, so how is replacing them through brute force unjustified? Somehow, Mob is never rewarded for preserving the status quo or punished for having his powers(experimented on).

The idea that all people can change and become better no matter how much of and for how long they've been a cunt is also bullshit. There's no real basis for that(there's a lot of evidence to contrary actually like people getting sued for performing cpr). I also don't buy the Claw boss having a wife and kid. What

If Rocklee was the main character, he would have a super secret power which made him stronger than everybody else. After "unlocking it" he'd spend a month or something in a training montage and surpass all his classmates. That's just the writer for you.

Populations naturally adapt to the land and what it can comfortably support(first world ones anyway), Japan is not the only one going through this, Germany was(I don't know about now because of all the migrants), Italy is and most eastern European states are.

Most western states have large immigrant populations and are still receiving more and in cases like Australia, the US and Canada they also still have large amounts of land that can be used to expand into.

Joshiraku is being licensed by Maiden Japan and will receive official english subs. A very strange decision since this is quite a niche show. I'm quite interested to see how they're going to pull it off given the highly contextual humor and wordplay.

From what I recall, no one wanted to sub the anime when it came out due to how complicated the humor and dialog is. This was back when fansubs were still a thing.
>> No. 33391 [Edit]
>>33390
GG ended up being the only ones to sub it, and each episode was accompanied by pages full of TL notes. For some the GG-subbed version is an abomination because a lot of the Japanese contextual jokes are replaced entirely with Western-understandable counterparts ("Four heavenly kings" -> "Kanto elite four"). To me the replacements at least made sense in context (which is better than the current state of official subbing [>>/an/33121]), so I didn't generally mind too much though.

Nah, I glanced at the first episode, and if anything it would be more like the blue/black haired girl. The one with deadpan replies.

Pic related is another example, or perhaps Bocchi from last season. Basically, characters that don't pick up on social cues and that have a dorky and awkward way of expressing themselves. I think it's a more realistic way of writing shy girls, because most "shy" girls in anime feel forced, like they're just trying to act cute.

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?

This is a show about a bunch of young woman going to the gym to lose a bit of weight. It's not a high-intensity sports show about obsessively commiting yourself to a single pursuit. Either way, there's no good reason to complain about minute details like how they animate weight lifting not being accurate to real life, and on top of that complaining about anime as a whole, creators making doujin instead of "talking to real woman"(???) and "basement dwellers".
