Kissanime has died. The exact reason why is unknown. Kissanime used a legal loop hole and as far as I know, other streaming sites haven't been affected by any recent law changes, so it's a mystery. I'd be willing to bet though that one of the major western streaming sites had something to do with it. I hope this doesn't cause anybody to pay for crunchyroll or fuckimation middle men.

As soon as my first archiving drive got corrupted I had to start thinking about backing up my back ups. No thank you, archiving needs maintenance and really ends up being a burden. I still generally don't stream but my ultimate solution is to just let go of entertainment media and not worry if I can't find it anymore.

Di Gi Charat is organizing a listen-along where you listen to the "top 10" songs that you can see listed on the last image.
The way it works seems to be that people will get their own CDs/mp3s/whatevers and organize on Twitter using the tag "でしこの同時再生会" which means "Deshiko's synchronized replay meeting"
Apparently you also have to follow @dejiko_15th. I'm not sure why because I don't use Twitter but if I'm going to guess I'd imagine it's because the account will tell you when exactly to play the next song.
You also get prizes, presumably randomly selected from the people posting with the tag. I don't know if there's anymore or whatever but the two listed in the image are a signature from Kogedonbo and a CD.

That art looks cute and getting a CD/signature would be nice (assuming they ship overseas) but I don't use Twitter.

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

>For example, a 'righteous' MC fighting for what he believes is right ends up either succumbing to his sinful imperfect nature or realizing that his objective-what he is fighting for, isn't exactly the most altruist, moralistic cause. Also, a lot of media may make the villain more human (sob-story of a past), but I would love to see a villain that turns out to actually be right, or, at least, very legitimate in his argument/ defense for his actions
Subversion of good vs evil is almost as played out as straightfoward good vs evil. Often there's some racial component where there's an evil race of supernatural beings who actually turn out to not be so bad. Or maybe the villain is actually trying to save the world and maybe the hero has also been tricked. Or maybe the protagonist's idealism ends up being harmful. That's all been done already. Stories where the viewer can choose who to see as the antagonist would actually be different.

Moral relativism is about as common as black and white morality. It's all good as long as it makes sense in-universe. Also using Yamaxanadu for a post like that seems ironic.

There's lots of media that don't fall for those topics. LOGH doesn't have a villain, except some fucks that are the ISIS of their universe, there's two sides with all kinds of people in them. I think you need to be aware about what is the public a product is made for, stuff made for kids and teenagers is going to have more of those kind of things, without taking into consideration it's quality. Also sometimes good vs evil can be perfectly fine too, see The Lord of the Rings, or Star Wars, etc.

There were some scenes that looked better in the drawn version compared to the CG. Of course the interesting part is that they bothered to fully-flesh and color a drawn version in the first place (unless they only decided to switch to CG very late).

I found why the theatrical version of Evangelion isn't so popular in the West.
It's format is based on traditional Japanese arts.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jo-ha-kyu

Eva 1: 'the first act as "Love"; the play opens auspiciously, using gentle themes and pleasant music to draw in the attention of the audience'.
Eva 2: 'The second act is described as "Warriors and Battles" (shura). Though it need not contain actual battle, it is generally typified by heightened tempo and intensity of plot'.
Eva 3 Q (kyu): 'The third act, the climax of the entire play, is typified by pathos and tragedy. The plot achieves its dramatic climax'.
Eva 4: 'the fourth act as a michiyuki (journey), which eases out of the intense drama of the climactic act, and often consists primarily of song and dance rather than dialogue and plot'.
Eva 5: 'The fifth act, then, is a rapid conclusion. All loose ends are tied up, and the play returns to an auspicious setting'.

For some reason it's only a few weeks after Hoshikuzu Telepath finished that this other Kirara show focused on space popped into my mind. While to my recollection this was a show where characters formed friendships over a common interest which just happened to be space, Hoshikuzu Telepath on the other hand played with the emotional concept of "space" much more strongly: in the very opening we saw each character reaching up: searching for something, _someone_ out there to connect with. (I can't be the only one who has reenacted the same, lying in bed with arms outstretched).

Though I don't want to compare kirara shows as each has its own charm, I am glad that this theme was revisited again.

Cromartie High School was one of the first anime I watched and dubbed happened to be the thing most readily available at the time. I enjoyed it a lot. Soon after that I started avoiding dubs altogether for pretty much the same reasons as everybody else, but over the years I always rewatched Cromartie dubbed. I'm not here to debate or anything, and I apologize if this is inappropriate, but is it possible that there's something special about Chromartie's dub?

When it comes to comedy, I'm tempted to say dubs are least bad, but I wouldn't really know for sure and I imagine they have a lot of the same problems as others like added vulgarity to emulate American "adult cartoons". Crayon Shin Chan is another show I watched dubbed and I know they changed cultural references so as to not confuse American audiences, so if I ever rewatch that, i'd like to see it subbed. Then there's the case of Ghost Stories, which was too vulgar for my taste and pretty much the same as "abridged" shit. What do you think about these outliers?

The one i downloaded back when i saw it included the original jap track and legit english subs.
It wasnt good.Its true though that they couldnt market easily shows other than school adventures/space operas/action-adventures and most of us had to find the good series later on when internet came along.
But i dont see why they would care about being able to market it.
In europe there were numerous channels that bought the cheapest and lowest budget series from Japan, gave them horrible localizations and broadcasted them en mass.Its a matter of economics really.The fact that they ignored other more serious series has to do with the fact that they were targeted only at kids as "jap cartoons" thats why the adult ovas never made it here.And to a great degree this is still the case.Hence the self-censor of most series that are being imported in the west.Not to mention general censorship in all jap media intended for the wes hey are still considered to be targeted at younger audiences and only them.

Like most adaptations of ecchi/porn, it mostly sucks. Animation too budget to be hot or adapt the manga style. Also censored to hell so there's basically no point to watching the tv version. Only good part was the spats shot of the futa loli angel.

As a side note, it's strange anyone's even picked this series up at all. En press did the translation of the manga too, which struck me as odd. Like who looked at this series and said "yeah this looks like a solid investment"? I need to learn moonrunes already, people who pick what gets translated be crazy.

I finished the first season of rozen maiden last night. Cried alot watching the last 2 episodes. I felt really bad for Suiginto and cried. It was so sad. And the part where Nori finds Jun in his dream was really sad. Gonna continue with the next season later today. Rozen Maiden thread.

Rozen Maiden is such a neat series, although I have yet to actually read the manga. The anime, though, is definitely a memorable one, and probably one of my favorites. Incredibly engaging characters, a very interesting plot, very good character designs, and animation that's sometimes cheesy and kind of awkward (six finger Suigintou) but works most of the time.
There's also a new season that everybody ignored that's supposed to be based on the new manga. The first episode is a really hasty recap though so it's kind of awkward going into after you just watched/rewatched the original series.
>> No. 34068 [Edit]
I started watching it as well. I have finished the first two and Overture and am now watching the 2013 version. It feels A LOT different than the others, it was written by two people so maybe that's why or it may be that it was the anime making it more serious or the anime of the other making it less serious. It's quite subdued and almost boring at times so far.
>> No. 34072 [Edit]
Okay, so I finished watching the 2013 anime, plus I read the manga up to where the new anime starts and then skimmed through until the new anime ends to see if there were many differences.

The 2013 anime was not great, it didn't get better from when I made the above post. Where as the first had more of the dolls together and had them often in an SoL type setting the new version didn't. It was more drama like and I didn't like the protagonist or the antagonist(the true one, I like Sugintou) much and it got quite silly.

The new anime is not actually an alternative version, the old anime ran out of source material and as is often the case it had to make an ending of it's own. The new anime is based on where the manga picks up again(but then again, overtakes the manga). The Manga up until the point that the new anime starts is actually fairly good, it feels much more like the old season(even the parts from when it diverts), there are some other differences and I didn't mind them, Sugintou is portrayed slight differently. Well I think. There is a side story called Rot Schwarz that apparently goes into the back story of Sugintou and Shinku, if it's like the back story in Overture then it would just mean the manga contradicts itself, it's possible. I can't actually find this anywhere to read, I can only find that it exists.

Actually overtake might be a bit misleading, it just stops when it runs out of material.
