Ray Blanchard is a man who researches sex and shit. He says that anime turns you gay, turns you into a transgender, turns you into a transvestite. Going by the track record of weebs, troons and femboys, there is a good chance he was right.

Does he scare you otakus? He is the demon with in your deepest, darkest nightmares? Does his sooths scare you and make you fear the inevitable, that all weebs will troon out and cut their dicks off

One who does not mind their own culture, their culture will fall.


your a pussy


So carneval turns men gay as well because some ironically pick female characters for their costumes? Case in point, you're just oversensitive to some topic because politicians use tranny-support to get liberal voters and others use anti-tranny-support to get frog voters and nobody realises both parties are authoritian-right.
If you're that sensitive to a topic about something because it's not the natural way and the system enforces it, maybe you should stop sitting >8hours a day in front of your glowing machine, which is in no way natural or healthy to the humans body or mind. But that's okay for you, because it's just the way you feel, eeeehhh?


the thing with troons its a complicated issue
yea its gross but so its eating boogers, should eating boogers be illegal? should we ban the eating booger society and their ads? flat earth people have their own thing too, they're just arent taken seriously.
I personally think its funny in a trainwreck circus show kinda way but if niggas wanna chop it off theres not much you can do other than laugh


i don't know much about blanchard's theorizing and should probably read about it to understand if there is any nuance to it, but first thoughts about the anime actually makes people gay sentiment seems like a forced meme to troll and bait oversensitive weebs with and not much else.

i could see how some who dive head first down the moe rabbit hole might be closeted, even to themselves, and since there are a lot of teens into anime fandom… well, they probably don't all really know what they want at that point in their lives anyway. so, they would probably go queer or troon out with or without anime obsessions. it would just be some other catalyst that would lead them to know what they already knew, but didn't yet know that they knew. and also hikki neet types who are already damaged in terms of identity and then go trans as an attempt to cope simply because it is now an option popularized in the mainstream media.

again, just first thoughts, but i also imagine that publishing some pseudo-scientific theory about anime being a cause of gender bending and not just a medium with sub-genres that latent gender benders are attracted to would be published at this point in current year simply because it would garner attention and that attention would benefit the author, not because their was any substance to it. psychology and social sciences are full of that type of filler. any theory that can possibly be postulated will be postulated in the pursuit of publication, regardless of it's merits.

TLDR - just because more trannies played with dolls and girly toys as a kid does not mean that all childrens toys makes you gay, but you might be able to gain some notoriatty and cash in on publishing a paper that makes such a claim.

So in my humble opinion there are many anime shows, especially recent ones, that are really hyped but not good or not as good as their hype would let you think. So in order to save time and or warn people to not expect too much from an anime, I'd like to make this OAWT (Overhyped Anime Warning Thread).

The comments should NOT include spoilers, especially not something like "the plottwist is stolen by XYZ". That would really suck.
Try to just include data like:
-Reasons why it is bad (repetitiveness, unoriginality, hollow characters)
-Reasons why it is hyped even though it is not that good f.e.
>it's hyped because the main character makes a good waifu, but the rest of the show is trash

I'll start by replying to my own post.


File: 1625839023052.jpg (112.17 KB, 2340x1080, v2-a7ac1abc815c2fda7259385….jpg)

My first one would be obviously: Darling in the Franxx

The anime made a ridiculously good waifu that's got it all. The style, the horns, the split personality. That is basically why the character is hyped, not really the show.
Prepare to watch a boring ass anime with a plot that is 80% NGE and a Character-relationship-lore that is 100% a copy of Elfen Lied
It is still fun to watch most of the time, actually really good in the first episodes. Expect to like her but not the anime.


File: 1625839500275.png (1.14 MB, 851x939, rem_re_zero_by_mrguyiknow-….png)

My 2nd and last one for now is:

Trust me, this show is a hot piece of garbage.
It starts really good (even for an isekai) and really makes you want to watch. The gates that are opened in the first episodes make you wonder about what's going to happen.
But after a few episodes it really becomes a sore and boring show without any character development at all.
The only thing that really is good about this show is the character design of Ram and Rem. It is simple but brilliant. The rest is for the trash can.
Worst MC of all time(!)
The show completely destroys the concept of deaths for every other anime you watch as well, because all the time someone dies and gets revived by going back in time.
Also the second season (24 episodes!) consist out of 2 things (not really a spoiler)
-50% of the time the MC cries and whines
-the other 50% Emilia does the exact same thing

I honestly regret having watched this show from the depths of my heart.


Jojo's bizarre adventure.

I honestly don't get the appeal of this show at all. The characters look incredibly ugly and like a mere paper cut will kill them all thanks to how extremely bara they look. They look better at 12 than at whatever age they are when they're grown up, because they don't even look like 12 when they're 12 but more like normal human beings. People love to praise the "uniqueness" of this show but it's just very ugly and boring. Oh no, Dio is so evil he killed a dog! Oh no, Dio is so corrupted he just stole this girls first kiss!… Dio is very boring.

My friend forced me to watch this with him for the first time ever, kept telling me that it's a very good show I'll end up loving and after a whole season I still cannot stand this show and don't plan on watching more of it either. The fans are also extremely annoying. Whenever someone says anything, there has to be a Jojo retard saying "omg was that a jojo reference XD" as if it's the funniest shit ever.

File: 1623851516107.png (311.22 KB, 699x478, FLCL.png)


hey wirechan, have someone seen FLCL?


I have not but I definitely will. It sounds very interesting.

>Naota Nandaba is an ordinary sixth grader living in a city where nothing amazing ever seems to happen. After his brother Tasuku leaves town to play baseball in America, Naota takes it upon himself to look after everything Tasuku left behind—from his top bunk bed to his ex-girlfriend Mamimi Samejima, who hasn't stopped clinging to Naota since Tasuku left.

Little does Naota know, however, that his mundane existence is on the verge of being changed forever: enter Haruko Haruhara, a Vespa-riding, bass guitar-wielding, pink-haired psychopath whose first encounter with Naota leaves him with tire tracks on his back and a giant horn on his head. Though all he wants is some peace and quiet, when Haruko takes up residence at his parents' home, Naota finds himself dragged into the heart of the greatest battle for supremacy that Earth—and quite possibly the entire universe—has ever seen


Trust me it's really worth watching


File: 1623866324622.jpg (72.05 KB, 1280x720, eqioruhg.jpg)

>>290 Agreed


I will never again feel such a thrilling passion within my heart and loins as when I watched FLCL at eleven. I don't think it's even a very good show nowadays, but it really shocked me. It was beyond just being horny. My whole body throbbed and thrummed.

File: 1519235297572.png (257.05 KB, 309x567, image-10.png)


I started watching NGE, every time I mention it to someone they say that the last two episodes sucked/are memes?
Is it even possible to appreciate all the episodes before it?

pic relevant?

What are some good anime that were made in the last few years, i feel that all the series i loved are about to be 10 to 15 years old now and i don't want to be *that* guy

Honestly I only know casuals that didn't think of this anime as complete trash. It's not generic and the art style is really good, but it really feels like it was made for edgy teens to relate to. I watched half of it but it was too repetitive for me to keep watching.
Well I guess it's just one of those animes where opinions differ, I'm glad you could enjoy it, I wouldn't recommend it though.~


>the art style is really good
That was what sucked me into it. Normally don't like that much CGI, but it had a unique look. Sometimes that's all it takes for me.
>made for edgy teens to relate to
Yeah, that kind of turned me off too and at times I wondered how much of it was sincere story telling and how much of it might be a platform for a gacha game down the road. Could picture parents scolding their edgy teens for over spending on too many eggs.
>too repetitive
Was a little disappointed after the first couple episodes to see it was turning into a monster of the week, but I stuck with it because I found it had a sort of surreal quality that I don't often come across… posting this here on a board that often loves Lain, so maybe that says something about my tastes. Anyway, halfway through I began to loose interest, but it took a couple weird twists towards the end and that's what redeemed it for me.
Like op said…
>i feel that all the series i loved are about to be 10 to 15 years old
I can relate to that and for the last couple years I've mostly been watching anime older then that, feeling a little burnt out on popular contemporary art style for the most part.


File: 1619450746692.jpg (271.73 KB, 1116x1382, odgL5QJ.jpg)

I recommend you Monogatari and Girls Last Tour, also Vivy which is airing right now


File: 1619715169374.png (933.86 KB, 680x1583, fatlus2.png)

Op here thanks for the reccs


Girls und panzer. When I originally saw some things about, I thought it was gonna be some weird anime. But its kinda fun, and the characters are likeable.

Also Initial D.

My shipment from japan with some anime figures and wall scrolls was returned to sender. I ordered it from amiami and never had problems with it. This was the first time I took the cheap shipping that takes 2 months. So now they'll send it back for 2 months and I'm going to have to pay shipping again and wait another 2 month.


File: 1622714799783.jpg (71.62 KB, 2560x1440, sad-anime-nawpic-9.jpg)

I feel that.
Poor Anon.


And the worst part is, I have a preorder every month for the next few months. And I don't know if I can take this cheap shipment again or if the return-to-sender was somehow connect to the shipping method. The difference is like paying 20€ or 50€ for shipping. Gaddeeeem

Mangos are tasty


Manga is OK, because you don't need to watch the anime to understand it.


>have to be following each single episode like a cultist going to the lodge every day
if that is your impression mabye you are trying to say you just dont like any series in general
>even the movies are tie-ins to the animu so you can't just watch them alone, you have to have seen teh enniemoo beforehand
Standalone anime movies exist


I've been getting into the subject, I think I may even be enjoying it.
Don't worry about it.
