>there's probably some fancy way to compute embeddings from ratings
At this point I'm sure you could probably just use transformer models as an arbitrary tool to compute these clusterings. It's a strict superset of word2vec type similarity things, and it clearly have leaned some embedding. Although I just tried on one and without prompting it recommended Higurashi as something similar to NNB (first two were k-on and yuru camp though), after more prompt examples it managed to do decently. It manages to do general clustering (anime like X anime) but doesn't manage to get semantic relations right (anime like X but without Y theme).

Looks like they're making a shitty remake of working!
This after turning a good show into vomit the last season.
Greedy Japs can't make good anime anymore, they only do formulaic crap and remakes.

i was just searching ovas on nyaa and and saw some genshiken stuff. that reminded me of how greed and lack of creative abilities amongst the anime industry neurotypcals can take hold of a good series and ruin it real hard.
if you're not familiar with genshiken it started out as an all male anime club with one member having a gf and the series being somewhat unique and particularly amusing & interesting to real otaku. after a few seasons it was an all female costume club anime with a focus on relationship drama and fanservice.
working! was similar, it was uniquely good slapstick comedy in it's opening seasons and turned into just another soap opera by s3. makes me kind of happy for all the great animes which never got the 2nd or 3nd seasons they deserved. most of them would have been ultrashit. you thought endless 8 was crap? what if next season is a chunimoe crossover? suddenly endless eight is an all-time classic.
what do you estimate the odds are that the moneymen at kyoani or any of the other big time anime conglomerates & subsidiaries could produce a worthy sequel to any of the unfinished works of art which pepper anime history?

All in all, I found this season weaker than S1 and the movie. They spent too much time at the village compared to the real adventure and all the layers they went through in S1. I know what's coming after this is more interesting and they had to go through this part of the manga but still kinda on the weak side compared to the other masterpieces.

Faputa's VA totally stole the show and the ending was bittersweet. Now the wait begins for the next season (or movie?).

It is very different. Season 1 went through a few of the layers too quickly, like layer 3(the great fault).

So while season 1 was more about adventure, this season was kind of like a drama. I agree that the former is more interesting than the latter. I enjoyed it nonetheless.

What do you think are some of the greatest harem animes of all time? In my opinion Haruhi, Lotte no Omocha, Sora no Otoshimono & Love Hina are all near the top of the list.

That comparison really doesn't make sense at all.
There aren't too many harems which would make a legit substitute for the pornography you prefer. Harem shows have the characters interacting socially, while H-amine is mainly just uses low quality artwork to depict cold mechanical sex with the same "OMG I'm cuming in a echo chamber" sound effect repeated every 20 seconds.

Matantei Loki Ragnarok has the best harem...
>> No. 36541 [Edit]
I don't think Haruhi is considered a harem anime? Oreimo probably, although at least the first season isn't that strong in this.

As one of the other anons here said, harem anime is in a weird place because in order for something to be a harem anime there necessarily needs to be non-trivial interaction with lots of different people (otherwise it's just a romance or side-gag), but doing so doesn't really lend itself to depth of interaction. So it's a bit of an odd island, even most shows that may start off as harem anime usually temper it down as things progress.

I'll also throw in what I perceive to be popular shows I'd class as harem anime after watching several episodes, although I'm sure others would disagree:

* kanojo okarishimasu
* oregairu

What do you think about video game adaptations(not visual novels)? Rpgs usually already have fleshed out stories with more room for diaologue and side characters, but there's benefits to an animated medium too. Which ones have you seen?

There's a neat annual report from the Association of Japanese animators that summarizes marketshare and revenues of the anime industry

The report itself is in English so it's worth skimming. There's lots of neat information there such as the geographic distribution of animation studios, geographic breakdown of overseas markets, and top sources of music royalty. What's interesting is that – unless I'm misinterpreting – overseas markets are actually substantial chunk of the entire revenue stream, which runs contrary to what I'd assumed. Although it's possible that this is due to how the categories are defined; I think if you limit yourself to TV and then compare foreign vs domestic the latter would dominate revenue-wise.

Overseas is defined as "overseas Japanese animation revenues (movies, TV, videogram, MD, etc.). So yes I think the "in a broad sense" chart includes merchandise as well as revenue from character-branded gacha-games. There's also a second chart for trends in a "limited sense" which focuses more strictly on revenue to animation studios (e.g. the "merchandising" category for the "broad sense" is defined as "domestic animation-related merchandise revenue" whereas the "limited sense" is defined as "a total of distributions (read: royalties?) receivable by studios in connection with rights licensed for merchandising, promotions, and events").

But even here overseas revenue is still a substantial chunk. It can't just be streaming because even in 2002 overseas revenue is on the same order magnitude as domestic TV revenue. Maybe it's just the fact that "overseas" has everything rolled into one. If you were to separate that category further by TV revenue vs merchandise vs others I think it'd probably show that overseas streaming revenue was dwarfed by others.

Breakdown by overseas markets shows US, Canada, and China largest in terms of number contracts for licensing. I don't know how this translates revenue-wise.

Makes sense. So does that mean things like gacha and merchandise are still more profitable than streaming by a large margin?

2021 report was released recently:

Some interesting snippets and discussion, regarding how the covid-19 stuff affected the markets:

>In 2020, the international market finally overtook the domestic market

>The COVID-19 Pandemic Rapidly Shifted the Windows so Streaming Overtook TV Anime

>Anime about idols had taken the top ranks of video package sales in 2019, but due to the lack of events, the number of titles in the top in 2020 decreased . Hit titles that reached large audiences like Demon Slayer and Weathering With You as well as titles connected to smartphone games instead filled the top ranks.

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.

Maybe you know about this.
"In A Thrilling, Solar Car" is a movie short from 1992 that's considered lost media. Only some screenshots survive. It would be a mere anechdote if the little material that survived didn't look so cool. It seems like an almost psychedelic, dreamy, Doraemon movie. Just love the naïve style.

Got around to finishing season 2 of this. Wasn't really expecting them to finish the story and wrap everything up by the end of this season. I really liked the first season but this second one, I dunno... it felt a little hamfisted and messy. Rushing to tie up the story probably didn't help. I feel like this season relied a little too much on viewers having experience with the game. The first season had some of that too, but somehow it didn't feel as bad. I guess with a first season you kinda just expect them to throw a bunch of characters out, which would get flushed out in more detail as things progress. They don't however really expand on the huge amount of characters they throw into the mix and instead just add more. What you're left with is too many characters in a poorly fleshed out world that ends before explaining half of what's going on, let alone properly establishing the motivation behind the villain or their goals. It's a lot of "who's that, what's that, what are they doing?" It ended on what felt like a "oh, that's it?" finality that should have been much more grand. There's still good stuff here, the interpersonal dynamics are good, but too much feels lacking, in a sort of "go play the mobile game" kind of way, and lets be honest, that's probably intentional.
