Let's post reviews of anime when we finish watching them!

It doesn't have to be from this season; any anime is fine!

That review almost hurt to read as much as the Flip Flappers one, since I consider Imosae to be one of my favorite shows. I said I'd scribble up some counterpoints, and I guess here's my attempt at doing so:

The show is unique in being one of the few SoLs with an older college-aged group. Whereas CGDCTs depicting middle-school/high-school usually shine a spotlight on the innocence and purity of youth (usually through close-knit friendships) or the bittersweetness of the transition from high-school to college (usually paired with a heavy dose of "mono no aware", usually in the last few episodes of shows), ImoSae focuses more on the endpoint of that transition: the difficulties one might experience as you try to come to grips with the fact that life is no longer lived on "autopilot" and try to find a place for yourself in the world. Each of the characters in the show captures these difficulties and insecurities: felings of unworthiness/inferiority, existential ennui/pruposelessness, or the pressure (from yourself or your environment) to "succeed".

The real beauty of this show is how it's able to explore this by weaving a rich tapestry of relationships between the characters, so that this story is told without explicit exposition but unfolds naturally as you learn more about the characters in their interactions with one another. The aforementioned themes are explored through the lens of being an author, so the story that ends up being told is one about the struggles of making an "impact" in the world – both through your creations and you yourself as a person.

There was this great comment I stumbled across and saved some time back which I'm going to quote verbatim (I've been waiting for an opportunity to dig it up)

Apologies for slow response (I am insanely busy lately, unfortunately). I appreciate your thoughtful post.

I understand your point about the life circumstances that are explored in the show, but I think you are overstating how much focus this actually got throughout the runtime.

It sounds like you really empathized with some of the aspects of the writing you mentioned, and that this is a primary cause for your enthusiasm. That's understandable and I've had similar feelings about other shows/stories.

>The real beauty of this show is how it's able to explore this by weaving a rich tapestry of relationships between the characters, so that this story is told without explicit exposition but unfolds naturally as you learn more about the characters in their interactions with one another.
I think this is a good point. Subtle character development like that can be hard to pull off.

>It's sad that Haganai didn't end up being anywhere close to ImoSae
Although I didn't like Haganai much either (my review of it is further up ITT), it had some genuinely funny moments and I personally enjoyed the comedy more overall relative to ImoSae. Also, Yozora and Sena were better characters than anyone in the ImoSae cast, IMO.

>>36290
Never seen it but expect I wouldn't like it. I didn't like Mitsuboshi Colours either, which seemed similar in spirit. I'm really picky when it comes to comedy.

JanTama PONG or Mahjong Soul Pon is an anime made by mahjong soul's yostar. It is a comedy about mahjong and the characters from the game.
I thought the first 2 episodes were very disappointing, but from episode 3 onwards it started to get funny. I liked the rest of the episodes.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to imply that it was bad. Perhaps I had too much expectation for it initially. Also, things like comedies are always subjective and can be difficult to get right.

To me maesetsu wasn't a comedy show, so much as it was a show _about_ comedy. But really the comedy itself could have been replaced by anything else, the focus was more on the usual stuff about persistence, hard work, friendship, etc. I realize that it didn't really get a warm reception, and honestly I don't even know exactly why I'm charmed by it: I'll readily admit that the depictions of pure friendship aren't as strong as it is in a kirara, and the pacing feels a little bit rocky. It feels organic and heartfelt though, and it mixes the sweetness and warmth you'd usually get in a CGDCT with doses of realism. I guess it's sort of the same reason why I liked ImoSae, if that makes any sense.

(It doesn't hurt that I genuinely thought some of the skits were funny. Like that cicada one.)
>> No. 36295 [Edit]

Yeah, it was decent as a cgdct sol and as you've said it's really more of a show about a comedian's struggle rather than an actual comedy. I was hoping it would be to comedy as Houkago Teibou Nishi is to fishing. I've never watched ImoSae but I find it rather similar in that respect to Chotto Ippai!.

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.

A lot of your questions are answered in the manga, the last episode of the anime is tailored exclusively for the anime and there are significant deviations from the manga. This is why adaptations don't always translate well.

I enjoy the manga enough to keep reading (until the translations were messed up and I put it on hold) but seeing as CloverWorks ruined The Promise Neverland season 2 I avoided the anime of Shadows House in fear something like this would happen.

Yesterday I started watching and I'm already 2 episodes into it. I wish the living dolls were more doll-like akin to Rozen Maiden and how the dolls had joints and a small stature. Anyway, I want to see how will evolve. I like the mysterious atmosphere mixed with the cuteness and sillyness of Emilyko.

It's always annoying when there's huge gaps between seasons in episodic shows. I think >>33476 basically summarized the lore-dump in the last episodes of S1. As far as I recall they didn't go into any more detail than that though (maybe they also mentioned that she somehow tampered with some magical spells), so it's still kind of confusing when they talk about Sakura like she's well known to the viewer.

Ep6 was amazing, and was good enough to be a finale episode. Such heartwarming display of pure friendship and affection from both Momo and Shamiko.

Btw, no need to mention Cory in the House, It's such a good anime that there is just no need to state the obvious.

Doraemon is a robot from the future sent back in time by Nobita's great-great-grandson to help Nobita have a decent, happy, productive life and also to help him avoid making too many mistakes that can cause the life of his descendents too difficult in the future. Doraemon arrives during Nobi's childhood and that's where most of the stories take place.

This is a character with a fundamental importance to manga and anime in many ways. I don't think anyone here at Tohno cares about Dora (yet!) but hopefully I can make it sound interesting enough to make you feel like checking it out once in a while. The show has such a long history that it can be used to understand the change in sensibility and taste in the industry, both in terms of plot content as well as the aesthetic sense, so even if you don't really care about the character, it can be interesting in a historical manner.

The current show began airing in 2005 and it has 700+ episodes at this time. I'll keep the thread active (because it's a forever airing show) by talking about aspects of the characters and the world they live in along with nice pics like I've been doing in the screencap thread. I don't take the making of a new thread lightly but I believe this is important enough it deserves one.

Doraemon does have a favorite dish, it's a confection called dorayaki. It's basically sweetened azuki beans paste sandwiched between two round pieces of cake. Dorayaki is a major element in the manga and the anime since it's one of things you can actually bribe Doraemon with or something he can get furious about if it's stolen from him for any reason. I don't remember any story where he displays any sentiments towards any particular day of the week, though it's easy to infer his weekdays are actually less busy because Nobita will be at school then. I don't remember any episode or chapter where lasagna is involved.
