What's the deal with time travel in anime? With only a couple of exceptions, this concept doesn't seem to get explored too often in anime but when it does it's almost always done in the exact same way. Some character travels back in time to fix some mistake, fails, and keeps going back over and over until they eventually get it right. It strikes me as odd because in western media you see a lot of time travel stories and they explore it from all kinds of perspectives and styles. From the simple stories of character's going back in time, fucking up the past, and trying to fix it. To stories in which the mob sends people back in time to be killed by assassins who will eventually have to kill their future selves too. You've got movies that end the way they start with an infinite loop, or characters who travel billions of years into the future and fight off mutated decedents of humans. They might even play around with the very format of the media and have the story all told backwards. Just the other day I saw one mind fuck of a movie in which a character travels back in time to impregnate themselves after getting a sex change to become their own father/mother while trying to stop a mad bomber who also turns out to be an older version of themselves. Ground hog day and edge of tomorrow are the only examples of western media doing the endless loop thing, yet edge of tomorrow was based on a Japanese manga. So why doesn't anime play around more with time travel from other perspectives? The likes of higurashi and steins;gate were great and all, but they can do so much more with the concept.

Hell, Time Travel Shoujo was garbage but at least they did things differently which makes it note worthy.

Natsu no Arashi dealed with it slightly differently, as did Inuyasha. Gunbuster and Diebuster took a more realistic approach. I’m sure there are others that I’m not thinking off off the top of my head.
>> No. 29884 [Edit]
Maybe it's an easy type of time travel story to write. There might be a technical side too, in a limited repeating loop there's less characters and environments to take care of.

Kind of breaking the rules here (delete this post if I'm going too far) but I gotta refer to western films.
You mention Predestination- it wasn't very good in my opinion. To me most of the incoming twists were obvious from the beginning, though it could have been better if the hermaphrodite time traveler's backstory was revealed gradually and not in a boring, bizarre exposition dump.
Also the actress looked very silly as a man, they should have used at least 3 different people to play different versions of the main character.
The movie feels "unbalanced" and I think what it attempted to do would work much better in anime. The strange parts that stand out in a jarring way could benefit from going into Japanese craziness mode.
Visually cartoon form also acts as a disbelief filter for me, I'm much less sensitive to stories turning outlandish when animated than when done in live action.
I think anime treatment would do wonders to many western stories that fail in 3D.
>> No. 29887 [Edit]
>>29883
Those are good examples. I somehow managed to forget about them. Although gunbuster feels like it only 'technically' counts as time travel as the progression of time was still linear and unchanging. Same as something like interstellar doesn't really 'feel' like a time travel movie, even if it technically is. If you're going to count that style of time travel, wouldn't that also include eveything which involves cryosleep or suspended animation?
Weren't the ghosts in Natsu no Arashi simply stuck there for eternity? (It's been a while since I've seen it). Was their an episode in which they took the main characters back to their own time for a vision or something like that? I'd appreciate it if you could refresh my memory.

>>29884
I completely agree about Predestination, but if nothing else I thought it was an interesting concept.
As for this repeating loop thing, it could also have something to do with Japanese culture.

In the second season Hajime did jump back with Arashi to the time where they died. I don’t remember exactly how it all played out though. Unfortunately, it was one of Crunchyroll’s worst subs they ever put out, and to my knowledge, no one ever redid the second season.

Series start with the protagonist leaving for work and her super cute imouto being a typical good sister. Thanks to the morning news, you can see this land is ruled by a King. Jean Otus, the MC, works at the ACCA Headquarters, as a Vice-chairman of the Inspection Department (Kansatsuka), surrounded by cheerful and gluttonous co-workers.

Then it's revealed that they live in Dowa Federation / Kingdom, composed of 13 districts. The shape of this land looks like a bird, although so far I assume it's a complete coincidence and not a man-made shape. ACCA works as management, making sure all 13 districts work properly and collaborate with each other to secure peace and a good standard of living for all the nation.

These are the aforementioned gluttons who engage daily on a 10 o'clock snack without fault. In their defence, I can't blame them. All the food shown so far is drawn to look utterly delicious. Moving on, every district has its own inspection department (if I understood correctly, 14 total: 13 for each district + headquarters), which oversees data output and investigates any arising issues in their jurisdictions. The HQ branch is tasked with auditing the other branches, which falls on the MC's responsibility.

This five visibly distinguished gentlemen are the Five Chief Officers of ACCA, with Grossular seeming to be their leader, based on a comment made in the episode. With ACCA being a 100-year-old agency, I assume Spade might be the second in command due to his apparent age.

At the end, I only watched Vaticanime, Owari², Chorogon Special, and Made in Abyss. Shoukoku no Altair's second cour had a great OP song (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ahp7htMFqvQ), but otherwise it seems to have passed under the radar; haven't seen it discussed anywhere so no clue if it's decent or not. Tsurezure seems to be a little 2DPD but I'll watch anyway, as well as Yami, 18if and Jigoku IV. Apocrypha ended up being garbage, so I'll skip it. Since these three didn't get a thread made about them:

>Owarimonogatari Part II
It was great and a proper ending for this anime series. The animation was perfect, the puns and smut as funny as ever, all plot lines got resolved even for the less important characters (except Sodachi Oikura) and the story and resolution was perfectly written and delivered. I think basically everyone who was expecting this release was satisfied.

>Princess Principal
This anime had fantastic art (backgrounds), music and animation. It was a delight to watch it despite not being that much of a fan of all-girl ensemble cast. Along with Made in Abyss, I'd say it seems it was the anime with highest production values in that season. The plot is a little contrived though, so you might need suspension of disbelief.

>Vatican Kiseki Chousakan
Pic related. This is hands down my biggest anime guilty pleasure. It wasn't a particularly good series; I'd call it decent and above average, but only because of the amazing art and backgrounds. It's about two priests who work as miracle examiners, so they get a case, travel to a location and see if it's real deal or a scam. Unfortunately for them, all the cases they engage in are preposterously complicated, with an obnoxious plot line behind them, to the point it takes itself so seriously that it becomes hilarious to watch, in a good way. I saw it being compared often with Samurai Flamenco in its execution, but I didn't watch it so can't compare. This has no cute girls n

Continuing with this, I finished Yami Shibai last year, I think on December 30th, watched it in on go. It was a collection of picture drama shorts showing some "horror" stories that have little to not strength in the storytelling so it ends up feeling more like a weird silly documentary. I still enjoyed it, but I wouldn't recommend it even considering how little it takes to watch.

I also finished Jigoku Shoujo: Yoi no Togi (Season 4), which was a bittersweet experience overall. On one hand it has all the classic elements, and some SoL interactions from the "cast" in-between the exposition to the tear-jerking suffering-of-the-week stories but on the other hand, only 6 episodes are new, while the later 6 are copy-and-pasted from previous seasons' with this one's OP, ED and a short introduction to each episode by cardboard cut-outs of the cast interacting with each other, which I found somewhat cute. This is very likely the last season there'll be in this series, so it felt bitter going out with a the visual equivalent of a whimper (last episode gives you no send-off at all). I'd say that if you watched S3 then S4 is worth a watch, and you won't miss anything from the last 6 episodes if you only watch the cardboard intros. By the way, I really liked the ED (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Oy0FzoNwJc).

I skipped 18if since it had reviews deeming it from awful to passable, so maybe in a few years one I have finished my backlog.

Several times along the series it reminded me of Future Boy Conan, in the sense of seeing through the lens of joyful innocence that a bleak and cruel world can nevertheless be beautiful, exciting and engrossing, and that exploring and adventuring is wholly youthful and energizing (which might very well be the intention). Despite of my own affinities and aversion to travel, I completely agree with this sentiment. With this anime I have felt something that I had not in a very long time: The desire to know absolutely everything about the world it takes place in. Sometimes I'll wonder about the surroundings of a story, but never to this degree. I want a gigantic catalogue, with all the plants, the animals, the composition of the layers to its most miniscule intricacy. This anime is amazing and it's truly a pity it did so bad so far regarding sales, which all-but-dooms the chances for a second season. I already caught to date to the manga, but the anime is just outright superior.

>no one has tried to stop her from going down
There are a couple of allusions to this, mainly the one in the flashback between Ozen and Lyza mentioning that Riko is naturally drawn to the abyss, with her first physical destination was to crawl in the same direction as soon as she was able to get off her back as a baby.

I don't know precise numbers, but it seems it didn't do as bad as thought at first and ended up around 4k sales per BD. No clue about the manga sales, but the author said S2 was entirely dependant on sales, so I assume the numbers reached the expected threshold.

I loved this anime and its world, so I'm very glad it's getting a continuation.

With the two largest anime torrent sites down, a lot of older and lesser known shows have become harder and harder to aquire. This thread is for torrents you have either created or are seeding for media which falls into this category. If you've got anything you believe is worth sharing, feel free to leave a link. If you've been looking for something, requests are cool too.

Post anything you are seeding which nobody else is, so others can as well. It'll save many the trouble of waiting weeks if not months for seemingly dead links.

If I had to guess I'd say it's from a generic sound track and lack of animation. This anime has all the energy of of a sloth in a clown outfit. The animation feels really stiff and lacking, you can almost count the frames of animation as they crawl by. For something with this kind of aesthetic the animation should be much more fluid and dynamic. The environments feel very lifeless too. In old western cartoons the backgrounds had this same style of rough scribble art but were always moving to keep things visually interesting. Likewise the music should pop more with more catchy energetic tunes. Also, maybe they should have gotten a bit more creative with the character designs. It looks like they tried to keep them cute/moe looking instead of letting their imaginations take hold and do something unique looking. By that I mean really stylizing the characters, rather than giving them horns and cat ears for no apparent reason.

Whelp, after 3ep I can safely say this anime feels like wasted potential. The setting/theme allowed for fun and creative visuals, but the end result is mediocrity. Art that doesn't pop but instead burps. Music that instead of standing out is easy to forget is even there. stale and stiff animation with no life to it. Forgettable and generic characters. Everything about this feels half-hearted. Shame really.

I'm a bit worried about the pacing. There has been quite a bit of world-building, yet this is apparently only one cour and hardly anything has really happened yet.

12-13 episodes are not enough for any kind of decent conclusion to the events that have transpired.
