What does /jp/ think about city pop?

To be sure.
What would help the industry is revolutionizing it. There are a variety of avenues that such a revolution might go, depending on what you consider doable.
But I don't see what a short music video would do to improve things.



Calling these modern programs AIs is a bit misleading, since they don't have any kind of intelligence or awareness.
It sets people up for confusion when they find that the sensible-seeming thing that they receive from the AI makes no sense whatsoever upon closer inspection.


The Japanese animation industry does not need help in that way, firstly the studio she used probably was unrelated to anime in general and funding it(for a one off project no less) will not create anime but secondly the anime industry itself is flourishing with more anime being made than ever before, it does not need help.

What it does need is some systemic adjustment to the way it's workers are paid and treated(which does also contribute to a lack of people as the industry is less competitive). Those systemic adjustments would have to come from the government or unions, though if the number of workers drops too low that will give them more value and thus they will be treated better in the end anyway(though I guess that would make the industry more competitive again and the cycle would just continue).


With how much generic garbage comes out every season, the industry downsizing may be a good thing, you know?

Sticking anime girls into unexpected, serious places will never not be funny. It's a time-honored tradition that reinforces the air of irreverence nerds on the internet have towards whatever dumb bullshit the norms are concerned about.


In general I would agree, if the politician in your image had not been spammed with very much reverence across the internet, often alongside anime girls, to the point that it even led to the ridiculous argument that being an anime fan was a sign of being in his camp.


For what it is worth, for people who don't like anime, it's a Rorschach test for 'thing/group I dislike and attribute to an entire medium and cultural output'.


Yeah, for every person claiming that liking anime makes you a neo-nazi there's another who sees an anime profile picture and goes into a foaming rant about degeneracy. They're both, at best, misinterpretations of a contrarian counterculture or, at worst, the paranoid delusions of the mentally unstable.

Yes, because you've fronted it, so for you it'd be bruvver. Likewise, writing /ð/ as <d> implies th-stopping as in AAVE bruddah. The problem is that Satoko's subbed English isn't th-stopped at all, it's not a generalized shift but rather an erroneous spelling of a single word which has no reason to sound any different from the rest, as a poor grasp at localizing nii-nii.

I think this audio track is new, or altered, or maybe this intro part of it hasn't played before. (and obviously this clip has episode 18 spoilers). The intro part with the bass-y strings... it's so good.
I really, really want the soundtrack. And I'll say it again: this show is BEAUTIFUL


File:waterfox_h86x54hoZW.png (1.27 MB,1668x459)

I'll bump the thread tomorrow when I talk about the episode, but despite this lacking the popularity it deserve I've noticed that it at least pops up on the 'hot' shows on release day every week on anilist.
This works by people updating their "watched episode 5" thing, so it means enough people are watching it to make a difference here, briefly.


I'll bump it now tehe

That was a really fun and unexpected episode. It's strange because it doesn't feel like they're rushing towards a conclusion and are instead taking their time. This episode did move the story forward, a little bit, but it could have easily been condensed into 3 minutes so they could fit more things in before they run out of episodes.
Very strange pacing, not that I'm complaining. I wonder what it could mean. I really really REALLY want there to be another season, but it's apparently under-performing because people have terrible taste. Poor BD sales or manga or something. I mentioned this somewhere but forgot where (was it in this thread?).
Anyway... cool episode! I wonder if I should go make some clips of it, but what stands out...

When adding up a series of numbers from 1 to n, we generally follow the formula "X=½n²+½n".
The sum of all natural numbers, ie X=1+2+3+4+...+∞ would then equal to ½∞²+½∞.

Since we all know that this series equals -1/12, that means that
½∞²+½∞=-1/12 //we multiply by 2
∞²+∞=-1/6 //we add ¼ in preparation for the first binomial formula [(a+b)²=a²+2ab+b²]
∞²+∞+¼=(3-2)/12 //we employ the said formula
∞1=-5/12; ∞2=-7/12

You cannot prove this wrong.

¥12 episodes is way too low to be anything but advertising
¥you can't expect much from an anime that's 12 episodes
¥they need more time to make a good story than just 12 episodes
12 episodes at an average of 22 minutes is 264 minutes total. The godfather is 175 minutes.

Are we factoring in the OP/ED or just assuming its straight 22 minutes?

But I love the bloat


The "anime is an advertisement for manga" thing is somewhat true, but a lot of directors make it their own so its not that bad

There's been many a time where I've stumbled upon a character and ironically stated, "Yup, that's me". Pretending or even lying to myself that I'm that character. But that's not the case here, this is me. I am literally Magia Baiser, Baiser is me. The mangaka wrote the story and I was who it was based on. You could not possibly craft a character that was more me than this. That's because if you were to change anything it would not be me, since it's me.

> >>69932 probably put it best in that Utena's sadism is in part a way for her to acquire a greater understanding of the totality of those magical girls she's cheered on.

I'm mostly just projecting examples my own sadistic motives there, given Utena so far has been basically an accidental self-insert.
That being said, seeing Azure's mind slowly melting with lust is where the two of us diverge. I loved seeing her fall apart and would have playfully teased and blue-balled her about being the miserable slut she is. Utena was genuinely disgusted by her though, which is understandable if you consider she has a much bigger history and more expectations towards Tres Magia compared to me just wanting to push every button of every girl (especially Sulphur).


The other big difference, of course, is that she is a 14 year old girl who is only just exploring her sexuality for the first time - there's nothing abnormal about her having particular expectations, boundaries, and disgust responses to sexual situations that someone more experienced would lack.
Who knows how much of a degenerate she'll be when she gets to your age?


I can't speak for others (obviously), but when I read the manga of Immoral Guild, I just found it meaningless.
They head out into the woods and get molested. By accident.
Then they go home.
The cycle repeats and repeats. Because there is no intelligent belligerent force, the molestation is not a temporary falling-behind in a prolonged struggle (against that antagonist), but rather a personal failure. Like a clumsy person might stumble and fall on her face.
But then it happens again and again and again.
It's frustrating. You read of the misadventures of a band of buffoons who lack the faculties to fix their lives.
There's also a boy with them who keeps getting blueballed when his teammates are getting up to sexy stuff around him whereas he is never getting any.

From every perspective, the story was just endlessly frustrating.


File:Gushing Over Magical Girls….jpg (4.56 MB,2701x3840)

they absolutely have way more of a personality than any stock and/or gimmick characters
but honestly it's utena that carries the hardest
the cycle of tard

Anyways, I went and read the manga up to volume 9, and can say last episode with Azur's recruitment flashback and breaking point was indeed delayed and actually takes place after right Alice's introduction, it's episode 10 in vol 2 and would've been like, episode 4 rather than 6. After that there's some long plot development that'll kick off next week. Some of the things we were shown like Magenta and Alice playing together or Kaoruko's flashback take place way later, in volumes 6/7.
Anyways, I enjoyed it a fair bit. The mindbreak will continue until morale improves.

I really don't know what to think of this gay robot show. Everything in it seems to be a parody of super robot mecha, but somehow I get the feeling it's being completely genuine about those elements and will only ramp them up over time.

Also, I hate hate hate magical shields that render conventional weaponry useless. I hate them. Don't show me fleet carriers or attack helicopters if they're not going to be allowed to do anything. Fuck you.

Have you ever watched an anime just to have discussions with your friends?

How did it go? What are your experiences with IRL friends who watch anime?

That's called "thinking".


There are different methods of thinking stuff through. Some people don't even have an inner monologue for example.
I can't explain it without it sounding like either schizophrenia or just thinking, so call it whatever you wish. Not really necessary to be condescending about it, it's not as profound as you seem to be implying.

My big brother whom I live with got into anime after the pandemic and became obsessed with SnK and Jujutsu Kaisen. He watched the newer SnK seasons before me and I watched JJK to discuss it with him and others after I got tired of keeping up with popular seasonal anime. He also watches other mainstream anime and somehow liked Mushoku Tensei when he discovered it and told me it was weird lol. We mostly discuss media when there's nothing else to talk about. It's the same with friends.
Same, this is why I'm careful with the anime I discuss openly irl on the rare occasions when it happens
Yes, fujo(s) love it too. It's ok ig


I don't have friends.
