Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

I wouldn’t say there’s been much stagnation, just that the passage of time doesn’t feel as far for the decades, although anime evolved a lot more in the 2000s than the 2010s although that is true of almost everything because of how fast technology was moving along.

No, what was in your image still holds true. Animation became popular in Japan as a more effective alternative to special effects in live action sci-fi films. It was only after sci-fi enthusiasts made the medium popular that anime became a vehicle for coldly abusing sex appeal to make cash. These days high school cuties still make up the vast majority of anime characters as they did 20 years ago, but not 30 years ago when giant robots, space ships and akira ruled the landscape. Anime was a rapidly developing, everchanging and interesting sector of the amusement market in the late 20th century, but not much has changed since the turn of the century. Anime spoofing anime has been common for so long that a mandatory daisy chain of meta meta meta jokes about anime make up a substantial portion of the "creative" content in a lot of shows, even the artists writing it don't like anime.

I like sci fi a lot but you’re delusional if you think it wasn’t always coldly abused for cash, as science fiction properties are very merchandise-able.

I don’t know the allusion here, but conventions aren’t a western exclusive thing and anime oriented ones weren’t that common until the 2000s. Only Godzilla was the big jap import until about the mid 90s to most congoers

I'm watching Ranma right now, it was extremely popular in my country for its moment and I remember watching it on tv so I decided to give it a go.
What I find interesting about this series is that is probably the closest thing to a western sitcom I have seen in anime. Once it kicks in and stops having actual story arcs (around episode 30 or so) this pretty much feels like The Simpsons, which each episode being self-contained stories that are like "the family goes to the park", "the family goes to the beach", "the gang goes to school at night to bust a ghost" etc. Which I surprisingly enjoy since at this point with almost 70 episodes watched I feel some sort of familiarity with the characters, so I have fun watching their antics and the wacky situations they come up with.
Also I have noticed that the animation quality is all over the place for this series, some episodes look gorgeous but others can't even mantain the characters on model for more than 5 seconds, but I guess its something to be expected out of a long running late 80's-early 90's series.

Yes. The TV shows are mostly standalone but you'll need to watch the OVAs in order.

This chart is kind of old but OVA 4 would probably go between GXP and Seikishi Monogatari.
Also, OVA 4 sucks. It's pointless, slow and, worst of all, boring. Don't bother with it unless you really want more Tenchi.

Alright, so all of you have full permission to blast me for this but, I have finally gotten around to watching Rozen Maiden (the original, not the remake). I know I'm late, but if it helps any, I am really enjoying the series so far. The story line is simple, the characters are fun, and even the filler episodes entertain me and have me laughing harder than I probably should. Overall, great series Desu.

Picked up a show called Pinky Street, just randomly out of stuff I got saved. Just two ep shorts, and I wouldn't post about it for anything other than the.. interesting looking 3dcg if it weren't for the second ep being about an otaku and his pal, which I thought was kinda nice to see. In the cgi portion thought it was kinda funny how a lot of the scenes were re-used in both eps. Seems like it was just a set of shorts to plug some merch, but I liked that second ep a bit anyway. Not much else to say about a show with two 10 minute episodes with a good chunk being shared between both.

Not terribly old, but I finished Sora no Method. I had high hopes since it was from studio 3hz: the artwork and soundtrack were beautiful as expected and moe was abundant, but if ever there was an archetype of melodrama, this would be it. You have the full-lot: minor misunderstandings get blown up, moody characters that would prefer to yell and storm than talk and resolve conflicts, and overblown reactions to inconsequential events.

And all of this drama in the first six episodes is wholly irrelevant to the main plot, not to mention the last two episodes which are a deus ex machina ruining all emotional buildup of the 11th episode. If they had limited it to episodes 7-11 it might have been decent. Or better yet just remove the drama aspects all together and make it a pure slice of life show centered around the hijinks of Nonoka and Noel with most of the drama removed, like the OVA was.

In the end, the only effects of the saucer were emotional and mental retardation.

Anne Happy – A very sweet and heartwarming SoL (as almost all Kirara adaptions are). If you enjoyed Slow Start last year, this has a similar feel to it in terms of character dynamics and friendships. It takes until the 4th episode to really pick up, but once it does each episode has a nice overarching arc that will leave you smiling at the end.

Plus the title is one of the best puns ("anne happy" meaning either unhappy or referring to Anne's happiness) since "sounan desu ka" ("are we shipwrecked" / "is that so").

At the time of seeing this anime I thought the waifu character was a tad odd, but went with it anyway. In retrospect I can totally understand after ridding Japanese trains for a while and finding images of Himemiya Nana, on the screens oddly comforting.

Recently finished the first season of Gochuumon. It was kind of nice half of the time but the other half it was just kind of boring. It made me wonder if I truly enjoy slice of life or something.
Tippy was pretty cool. I liked him a lot. Cocoa was a lot of fun, Chiyo was pretty fun too. Blue Mountain was really funny but also pretty chill. It was nice to see a Christmas cake too. I feel like I don't see those much. Her fanart is really hot too. Chino felt really overrated.
I could probably check out the other seasons but I worry it would just ruin what the first season did by throwing in yuri or something.
>> No. 33562 [Edit]

What’s your problem with yuri?
>> No. 33565 [Edit]

> but the other half it was just kind of boring
Indeed, I felt the same way about Gochiusa. The second season is slightly better, but not too significantly. (Also if you were not aware there was an OVA "Gochiusa: sing for you" that released last week). As for yuri, there's not really much beyond what you see in season 1 (the light yuritease between Sharo and Rize).

> if I truly enjoy slice of life or something
I think Gochiusa and K-On (S1 at least) are a bit overhyped within the SoL genre, so I wouldn't necessarily use this as a benchmark. For SoL since there's no real plot the most important element becomes the character's interpersonal interactions so even within the genre some shows might appeal to you more than others. Try a few other kirara adaptations (Machikado Mazoku, Slow Start, Comic Girls) and see if those resonate a bit better.

If you dislike yuri entirely then perhaps CGDCT SoL might not be your cup of tea since they've essentially become intertwined at this point. That being said I think some shows just try to force yuribait in a manner which doesn't work (I felt the Sharo/Rize pairing was unnecessarily forced and overdone. Also the entirety of Yuru Yuri felt like a bunch of repetitive and predictable jokes with yuribait as the punchline), so if your disdain is only limited to that scope then there are better shows in that regard (e.g. the kirara works I listed above).

I finished the second episode of pic related. It's pretty funny and relatable since I work in retail. The characters all having odd heads makes me think of Halloween so I like that about it. The animation is non-existent, kind of like an Adult Swim show. The episodes are short but I don't mind it. I'm looking forward to the rest.

>> No. 33775 [Edit]
>>33770
I don't think Tylor was a disappointment, just not entirely a comedy show. If you go in thinking "this is a comedy; if I'm not laughing, it sucks", then you'll surely be disappointed. But if you don't take this viewpoint, and you enjoy sci-fi anime, then you'll probably enjoy it a lot more. (I know I certainly did). You can especially see this with the OVAs, where the staff was able to make an almost completely serious show, and succeeded in making some, in my opinion, very good episodes. Plus, the animation quality itself of the series is quite pleasing to the eye.
>> No. 33776 [Edit]

yes,but thats the thing.Watching the first ~20 episodes you get the feeling that its a funny,lighthearted show-and a good one at that-i enjoyed it very much.But then suddenly it gets all serious and changes character completely.That was why i was dissapointed,i wanted it to finish as it started,as a funny lighthearted show not as a space drama.
Imagine watching lotgh and suddenly mid show everybody starts being goofy making jokes and there are pantyshots too.Thats how i felt but in reverse

I've been going through the last few episodes of 2202 now that it's all out and I remembered that it is. Last time I watched it was when I was caught up with releases. It's really good stuff. I miss Xebec.

On a related note, I've been thinking about how 2199 had a pretty big impact in that it paved the way for the serialized anime films we see now, like GuP's finale.

Watching Sabagebu!. It's humorous and I'm enjoying it.
>> No. 34221 [Edit]

Coincidentally also just started watching it this week. It is indeed quite good, with a style of humor in the vein of Kitakubu: situations that escalate and build off of each other (without veering too heavily into the absurdist realm or becoming predictable in the randomness, which was my gripe with shows like e.g. nichijou) combined with sharp meta-humor and great character interactions.
>> No. 34222 [Edit]

I'm watching that at the moment as well. It's good, I think I will watch more space anime afterwards. I think this season is a bit silly in some ways such as the motivation of the antagonists though, the focus on love as a central driving theme seems very 70's.
