Anyone saw this? What did you think?

>but I definitely don't consider it an anime.
What criteria do you use to define "anime"? Some say it's the art style that defines it, others say an animation is "anime" if it was made in Japan.
>I hate Netflix and don't personally use it.
Ditto. It's sucked for years now.
>Another thing I'd like to mention is the music was probably the most disappointing part.
I thought the music was pretty good. But again, it's probably because I had different expectations. Considering I also liked the videogame (I waited until about version 1.5 where it was more stable), maybe I just have bad taste.


Well I guess I'm just a gatekeeping bitch, if you want to enjoy the show, enjoy yourself, but I'd much likely prefer to read more classical /cy/-/lit/, before I watch some neon coat spinoff.


Any literature or other media you would recommend? I've had a love of tech since I was a child and have despised it's over-centralization and corpratization since my teens, but I'm still relatively new to cyberpunk as a genre.


This page has neat recommendations for different types of media in its header. I've recently read a few of William Gibsons books. Really neat, Neuromancer is a must in this genre.


I just finished it. The exposition sucked, but honestly it was really good until the ending. The ending was unforgivably bad. They threw away all the characterization they'd made in favor of "haha big robot man" and then just slapped a crappy epilogue on it that basically just says "the real cyberpunk was the friends we made along the way." I really wanted to enjoy it, the writers are genuinely talented, but I don't know if it was some jack ass in a suit or just poor decision making that led to a literal shit show. The only other complaint I have about the show is that, like mentioned before, it basically just has a cyberpunk setting and doesn't really explore or make any points out of the genre.
Ah, a severe case of juvenoia I see. I too agree that young people bad old people good.

Oh man, I haven't watched HS in years and years and years. I wonder if I still have it…

I really like stories about artists, even though they're never about art.


sketchbook full color's and ga: geijutsuka art school are two other good ones. i love art school anime for some reason


I feel bad, but I can't get through HS. It does nothing for me.

Anime sucks prove me wrong

There's this boy who isn't really cool but he's got that one friend who isn't really cool as well. Actually his friend doesn't mean shit he's just there for the introduction, because they do something outside, probably in the nature. Then the boys (disrupted) family-conditions are introduced and shortly after he bumps into something weird/special/supernatural (what the movie is about). Anyways by that time the boy has probably already met his sidekickchick that is a pretty cool girl and she is really weird but interesting at the same time. She's not interested in him at all but always ends up in those sticky situations with the boy, so they get closer to eachother because they get twisted into this shared goal of doing something in order to prevent the big bad. In the end they either defeat the big bad and the boy nearly dies so the girl realizes she is into him or it turns out there was actually a different one the actual big bad endboss. In that case it's likely he takes the girl hostage and the boy saves her.

This pattern with small adjustments is 90% of what comes out of hollywood. And then there are some higher quality movies like Tarantino stuff, but those are the exception.
Of course anime has it's phases and trends as well, where like the majority produces f.e. isekai-animes, but the probability of some weird ass mangaka coming up with something refreshing is way higher, because he doesn't give that much of a fuck about the financial perspective when producing his piece of art, unlike hollywood that - like already mentioned - needs to be on the safe side with their concepts and productions.



And another point is: Actors can never perfectly act and the best actors are even worse because you know them from different movies which kinda breaks the whole illusion. Anime is - think about it - way more authentical than lifeaction in that matter.

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?

Use this thread for general anime recommendations! List shows you've seen, what you like about them, and respond to others with shows you think they'd like.

I myself am pretty uncultured when it comes to the anime world. Despite this, anime has produced some of my favorite works of all time. I will list them now:

>MSG Thunderbolt December Sky

>FLCL (only the og OVA)
>Serial Experiments Lain
>Neon Genesis Evangelion
>Howl's Moving Castle

I think I like mecha quite a bit, I also like psychological dramas, and Howl's Moving Castle is nothing short of beautiful.

I've been rewatching Silent Mobius. I'd easily recommend this one to those who haven't watched it here.

Kiss x Sis was an instant classic. Fits in if you like more modern anime or even "retro" anime series. It could have fit in pretty great even if it were made a decade earlier or so. I loved it and wish there would have been more as the manga had so much more to add.

Evangelion is overrated, prove me wrong


I can't! It is.

I watched it a few months ago, it was fab but I haven't felt the need to return to it.

I heard someone say you have to "Watch Evangelion, just so you can say you've watched Evangelion."

That rings true to me.


You have to think in the context and time when it was released, thats like if you said lain is overrated but in the year 2138 when the internet has changed drastically, its all about the cultural zeitgeist and the effects on it.


File: 1679012229299.jpg (134.35 KB, 850x1203, __souryuu_asuka_langley_ay….jpg)

Generally agree with the other sentiments expressed in the thread. Although it is overrated, I can't fully agree with that myself considering how the original ending made me feel. So I'd say it's still worth watching but I am more than satisfied with it all being over thanks to the release of 3.0+1.0, which was fine for what it was. I enjoyed the 'touch grass nerd' ending

i feel eva is something you should watch as a teenager so you can better level yourself with the angst. something about watching sexually frustrated children as an adult just feels uncomfortable so i opted not to rewatch it further :D

i wouldn't call the show overrated though, more like famous. people just know it. at least most of the people i know who've watched it didn't think it was anything that special apart from the weird shit going on in the latter half of the series which is just memed to hell at this point.


File: 1679155904798.png (761.11 KB, 640x853, an_impossible_whopper.png)

It's weird. Whenever I hear the term overrated, I have to pause because I don't often understand how things are rated or pay much attention to that back and forth. Aside from being pedantic there, sure, it's popular and the memes spread to fans of varying levels of interest, maybe, in part, due to a viral marketing push.
Anyway, I didn't watch it initially, so by the time I got around to giving it a chance there was already talk about it being a franchise where the creator was actively provoking his audience, so that was an interesting lens to view it through. Can't really say what I would have thought about it outside of that context.

I'm twenty + eps in already. It's just so incredibly dubbed, a fantastic distinctive voice cast across the board.
So who here has watched Yu Yu Hakusho: Ghost Files?

I liked gundam IBO.


Any one has any nice recomendation for someone that really liked Mushishi? I really like anime with country side, slow paced, fantasy that feels as if it could be real.


A simple, honest life. I'm glad he enjoys games

A fried egg! I will hit the planet on the side of a teflon-coated frying pan, already heated. The juicy contents spilling out and sizzling as the proteins change conformation. Tasty tasty fried egg.
