You should lay off the ryona for a while.

That's how I felt about Maou-jou de Oyasumi, it's quite amazing how the mangaka is able to come up with 16 volumes of such a basic premise but on the other hand it obviously gets old fast.

Perhaps I've set my expectations too high but Maesetsu was slightly disappointing. Not exactly terrible but for an anime about owarai, there is certainly a lack of laughs especially since they were selling that aspect rather hard.

A girl that just moved into town gets baited into joining a fishy club which is struggling to stay a float with bare minimum members. This little shrimp doesn't want to join but with time she'll be hooked on it. This anime is reel fun I swear, don't cast it aside!

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.

Use ZFS(/btrfs) alongside raid(-z). Or if you want to avoid thinking about it, get a synology nas which will internally take of pooling and file system details for you and just expose an smb share.

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.

How much do you care about encode quality of the anime you watch?

For newer shows there's not really much choice since you're essentially limited to downloading stream rips from HS/Erai (or re-encodes thereof) or waiting until a blu-ray release. But even then, do you go back and re-watch/re-download shows for archival purposes, and if so how much care do you put into select the "best" encode (bitrate, compression format, etc.). Do you use a local upscaler (e.g. Anime4K as discussed in a previous thread on here)?

For older shows you can usually find a plethora of different releases from different groups – especially during the infamous push for 10-bit – and amusingly I used to find myself spending more time sorting through them trying to pick out the "best" than it took to watch several episodes.

I pick some lower quality compromise usually, for older shows usually 480p for newer 720, mostly to save disk space. For shows I really like I'll get some BD release. If there's a fansub I'll usually pick that over dual audio releases also.

I often go back to download and archive BD releases of shows I enjoyed.

Care a lot for personal favorites. Preferably 1080p x264 FLAC BDrip with scans of the packaging and audio CDs. Also the BDMV.
For shows I enjoyed, HEVC Hi10P, preferrably OPUS.
In both cases I look for encoders and groups I trust/have downloaded from previously and just watch some parts to check for inconsistencies. Sometimes I download an episode or 2 to compare.

For shows I didn't like much, I go for a smaller 720p release, HEVC if available, and just check that it wasn't a 16yo hackerman encode.

Usually raws.
Quality and completion over size.

Because I like to reminisce about shows I've watched; Admire the cover art and character design of the characters I like; Do not trust companies to keep them; Like to think that some day, may be able help someone who is looking for the files of a show they'd like to watch/archive in the future.

These shows and characters are my little treasures.

For older anime I don't mind if it's a DVD rip (it just has to be a good one). I find most of my stuff in high-quality anyway. But for recent anime I try to get the best release available since I've a lot of space with my 2x3TB HDD.

I like a decent quality ~ 360/480 for older releases.720 minimum for new releases.
