Lately I've been thinking we need a miscellaneous thread. We've got so many threads for specific topics, but no place for general anime discussion that might not necessarily be about any of the currently airing anime. This would be a thread for things that people don't feel is worth creating a new thread for, or bumping a really old one for.

or remaking a thread because it was knocked off the end of the board.

I guess I'll start: We have sleeping, exercising, and bathing with Hinako (and taichou). Did I miss any, or was taichou's addition to the staff not enough to keep the * with Hinako producers from running out of ideas even with the addition of a new fucking character?
>> No. 16699 [Edit]
I'd have liked to see a Cooking with Hinako ova. The original was created with the idea that many otaku are out of shape and need to get more active and exercise more. Similarly I think many otaku probably have poor nutrition intakes and just eat lots of junk food or live off ramen. I think something that would teach otaku how to prepare cheap and easy healthy meals would be a good idea and service.

why would a thread that didn't see any new posts for over a year need to be remade?

Whats with all the flying naked people in anime OPs?

First there would be Shopping with Hinako, where she teaches you how to pick out the ripest fruits and best deals. Erotically.
>> No. 16703 [Edit]
This is now a Hinako thread.


I don't remember it very well because it's been a while but there's some bonus OVA (short one probably) with Taichou and Hinako. So it should be 4 'eps' in total at least.


Leave cooking corners to Sunred.

I'm tired of all these anime lately using ugly filtered street photos for backgrounds.
>> No. 18251 [Edit]
Bothers me too. Usually they don't even do anything stylistically interesting with it, it's just really ugly.
>> No. 18253 [Edit]
these kind of threads are worthless
having a catchall thread for dozens of unrelated topics make coherent discussion of any of the individual topics pretty much near impossible
>> No. 18254 [Edit]
Between all the real world photos and cgi, makes me wonder how long it'll be before we can't really call anime "anime" anymore and it becomes something completely different.

I for one fear the day when Japanese animation goes full 3D CGI or worse as a cheaper and easier alternative to drawn frame animation, the same way American made big screen animation went. There hasn't been a real "cartoon" in American theaters for years as far as I know.

Studios need to learn to take it easy when adapting light novels. Not try and rush through plots to fit as many of them in there as possible while sacrificing the heart of the story to do so. Quality over quantity, and don't be afraid to end a season in the middle of a story arc, if you did well with the series people will buy more, and you can animate more.

File 138785843148.jpg - (79.54KB , 1280x720 , [Commie] Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere - 17 [0C.jpg )

That's what they did with Horizon.

and they didn't even get to the good parts, and would need another 4 seasons before it even got there if they continued along the same pace.

And even then there were complaints that it went through the story too fucking fast for anybody who didn't read the thesaurus to truly understand what was going on.

Anime maids doing maid things = moe.

Anime maids doing military \ action things = why?

Maids reaching hard to dust the top of the shelf or screwing their faces up trying to scrub out a tough spot of oil, maids making beds and folding linens and doting on their masters, are lovable. Maids who don't even maid aren't maids, they're just girls with guns who should be wearing combat armor, and not frilly black-and-white maid outfits.

I've resisted this thought for a while now, but I'm starting to believe that anime is changing for the worse in regards to what the current 18-35 demographic knows and loves. I still don't have anything really concrete to point to, it's just a feeling. After snoozing my way through this year's anime, though, I kind of just want the change to happen so I can get the crushing of my hopes over with. I am very grateful that so much good anime has been produced, though, and I can easily and happily spend the rest of my life rewatching things.
>> No. 19570 [Edit]
why do anime in school settings always have club members that are graduating soon? It's like the creators are shooting themselves in the foot. It's as good as killing off the characters and it kills the possibility of sequels. You'd think they could at least hold off on something like that till the third or forth season if they really want to give the series a proper ending.
>> No. 19573 [Edit]
Maybe they don't expect their show to be popular enough for another season?

'In Japan, cherry blossoms also symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life,[9] an aspect of Japanese cultural tradition that is often associated with Buddhistic influence,[10] and which is embodied in the concept of mono no aware.[11]'
'The transience of the blossoms, the extreme beauty and quick death, has often been associated with mortality;[9] for this reason, cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in Japanese art, manga, anime, and film, as well as at musical performances for ambient effect.'

'Mono no aware (物の哀れ?), literally "the pathos of things", and also translated as "an empathy toward things", or "a sensitivity to ephemera", is a Japanese term for the awareness of impermanence (無常 mujō?), or transience of things, and both a transient gentle sadness (or wistfulness) at their passing as well as a longer, deeper gentle sadness about this state being the reality of life.'

Thanks? That doesn't really seem to answer the question though...
Kinda like asking why living things must inevitably die, and getting a copy/pasted definition of the word death.

Are you saying that the person who asked the question is an idiot for asking such a stupid question to begin with?
>> No. 19807 [Edit]
No, I'm saying copy/pasting a definition isn't answering a question.

Sure it did. It isn't answering the question direct but the information provided leads one to find the answer themself.

I was thinking. With all these light novel adaptations centered around generic as hell boring highschool boys who suddenly get introduced to some magical or supernatural girl that becomes their love interest.
Isn't it just twighlight with the genders swamped?

I hate it when anime assumes the viewer has read the manga or tries to force you to do so. If they're gonna do that stuff then what's the point of taking the material to a new format in the first place?

It's bad enough when anime have non-endings telling viewers to fuck off and read the manga for the end. Then there's shows that skip over large amounts of content between seasons. this stuff really gets on my nerves.
>> No. 20555 [Edit]
In Japan anime often tend to be just advertisements for the manga/ln. That's nothing new or special.

That sort of behavior is common and generally expected.
It is odd that the poster only now realizes it.

Though when the anime goes it's own route to deviate from the manga/ln source material, such as the end of Claymore or Rosario†Vampire S2, the writing and direction end up so terrible that most people realize the error of that thinking and are then happy that the director "chose" to follow the story and keyframes that have already been laid out before them.

>only now realizes it.
who said I only now realizes it? I've know about it for almost as long as I've know about anime, and have never accepted it.
>> No. 20560 [Edit]
You have to understand the economy behind it. It's not always about selling as many DVDs as possible, often the producers and sponsors of a show use the exposure of the TV program as a opportunity to boost the sales of the original work. (or the anime was only produced to sell toys or merch) They don't produce anime for fun, they do it to earn money. Sponsors hesitate to back projects where they are not guaranteed not get much money back from their investment.
Of course you don't have to like that, but without it some companies wouldn't want to invest their money like that and a lot of shows wouldn't even exist in the first place. This is why fans tolerate it.
>> No. 20561 [Edit]
Fans can change the funding system by kickstarting direct to the creators;

oh boy! it's been far too long since we've had a mars of destruction/Skelter grade anime.
>> No. 20566 [Edit]

Great, now we're paying for stuff that doesn't exist purely because the premise sounds interesting. This has never gone wrong. Completely foolproof.
I understand kickstarters for the likes of LWA since you already saw an ep of that and know what to expect but as far as original anime are concerned I plan to say away from kickstarters as far as humanly possible.

I only watch 1-3 new anime a year. I have very specific tastes. Not purely in the sense of the subject matter (although that contributes to it) but in that the anime has to have a certain feeling.
>> No. 20595 [Edit]
Why does an entire industry have to change how it works just because you don't like the way it currently works?

Your proposal is stupid as well.
>> No. 20597 [Edit]
Kick Heart was awful, though - and I'm usually a fan of Yuasa's works. The biggest issue with kickstarting anime is that you have no idea if it will be garbage before you waste your money.
>> No. 20598 [Edit]
Not to mention how much money you'd have to put in just to get a decent length.
>> No. 20606 [Edit]
You won't change anything with that attitude.

It's like saying you need dozens of people to make good anime;

You're the only one who wants to change it.

I hate it when they make an anime or manga or whatever with lots of foreign words but they just don't care about getting them right.
Gunslinger Girl uses the singular form for everything and translated "Siblings" to "Fratello", which means brother.

I wouldn't mind if it was a comedy or sol, it could even be cute in those cases, but if you're going to make a cartoon that is supposed to be serious, you should put some more effort into it.

Japanese are bad at languages besides Japanese?
It's more likely that you think.
eg. "First Children", "Battary Fail", "Situation: Clitical"
