Why was this mindset so pervasive in the early days of anime? So many great classic manga turned never got proper adaptations because of this...

File:it's laced with drugs.png (160.44 KB,531x460)

Mostly a matter of different target audiences, I'd assume. Late night anime wasn't really a thing at the time. Plus, I recall reading somewhere that Nagai himself said shows like the 70s Devilman and Getter Robo anime were never intended to be adaptations of his manga, and should be viewed as separate works that happen to share basic settings and worldbuilding elements.


damn dude, he does drugs


Cigarettes are one thing, but cigarettes laced with drugs? Can't show that on TV, can you.

How come dynazenon has been so good despite not focusing on the Kaijuu battles?


I think the special effects and choreography get quite a bit of love and detail though. It's Trigger though so that's par for the course. So far I still prefer Gridman though.


For me, mostly the same as Gridman: good dialogue.


I definitely wish it focused more on the battles or at least the kaiju. The character is alright, but not what I was expecting. It's... okay.

Because it has the sexiest TOYS

File:[SubsPlease] SSSS.Dynazen….webm (6.41 MB,1280x720)


This show's been very laid back with its kaijuu elements and bringing stuff down to a more personal level throughout the season so far, but there's so much on-screen destruction that just gets pushed to the side which seems odd for a show that tries to push realism on its characters. I wonder if it's a parody element of the show, or setting up for something later on.

Yes. There are lots of little hints in their mannerisms, and there was a dramatic pause in ep.8 after Gauma asks "How do you guys know that? It's not like you're kaiju."

have only had passing attention to this in the steam but it seems like I might need to watch it.

Yeah, this episode was pretty great. We even got a nice throwback.

Putting aside the suicide since that's illogical by nature, why didn't Sayu's brother get her her own place to stay? He seems rich enough to do so and allow her to live on her own instead of letting her run out into the streets to whore around and never contact him again.

I don't think Sayu's mother hates her. She seems more like a stereotypical controlling parent who can't handle it when her kids talk back. Her brother probably thought it would be best for Sayu to spend some time away on her own terms because her mother's obsession with saving face would make Sayu's trauma worse, but he also recognized that her mother would never approve of that, precisely because it would make her lose face.
>But are there laws that say a teen needs to have parental approval to move out and live on their own?
I always assumed that's how it works in most countries. There are probably lots of nuances, but Wikipedia sums it up as:
>Child custody consists of legal custody, which is the right to make decisions about the child, and physical custody, which is the right and duty to house, provide and care for the child. [..] Physical custody establishes where a child lives and who decides day-to-day issues regarding the child.
Even in anime, teens who live on their own usually have special circumstances, like parents who are dead, missing, or on neverending business trips.


File:[Coalgirls]_Yuru_Yuri_01_(….jpg (159.56 KB,1920x1080)

Doesn't Yui live on her own just to be independent and out of no other special circumstances?


im very surprised this wasnt written by a women
this entire show is just women problems from the reason she left to the reason she ended up meeting yoshida


give me it quick and hard. Does this have episodes which are laughably bad or is it just bad?


the show isnt bad its rather well made, the characters are even that terrible
its just that writing is repetitive and often terrible
im still sort of enjoying it but cant recommend it in good faith

On a scale from 10 to 10, how excited are you for Mewkledreamy season 2? You've watched it, right? You're a diehard fan that would die for Yume, yes? Who is your favorite girl? How many screenshots do you have? I'm at 1989.

I hope MoyaiSubs is able to go back to doing it weekly, but I understand that most people have lives. Really looking forward to Mix!


Well it seems that if they're back to doing Mewkle than their TL has finished with their college finals, meaning they should be ready to keep doing it.


Have you made it up to the current year yet?

Mewkledreamy finale subs are out! What a great show! Why must everything end with a depressing graduation episode, don't Japanese people feel bad enough about their lost youth enough already?

What are some of your favorite instruments?

It's a shame that some instruments sound too specifically relating so a melody gives more touch towards a subcontinent's local affairs than towards a greater picture for the listerner's ears. It's hardly forseeable when relistening songs when a flute would make more sense to be played throughout the melody than a piano.

I learned some piano when I was 12, I wouldn't dare touch one now.

Violin seems like one of the most emotional instruments along with piano. Add those two together and you have yourself a sad soundtrack

Have you done your Anki reps for the day?
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


i stopped using anki a few months ago
actually feel better, i wasn't adding many new words and it just felt like I wasn't learning anything only blunt memorization
an extra 15 minutes everyday that could be used to actually read japanese


no because I'm lazy and don't like thinking


I do them, but I keep on wasting time outside of anki instead of reading japanese


if you're at the point where you can read stuff without consulting a dictionary every five words then that is the sign that you're past the anki phase anyway


Already know it so I don't really use Anki often. Kind of wish I spent my teen years learning a skill that makes money instead of Japanese though.

I notice more details when I'm not sober. I think it helps for everyone to have a slight amount of alcohol in their system?
6 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.



Hmm, I feel like it would have been more informative if they determined whether or not the people were buzzed/tipsy/etc or not since people have different alcohol tolerances. Two drinks may have no effect, or it may have a lot.


I should probably try and achieve maximum efficiency by always maintaining this state... I think it's probably the funposting peak as well which I hit when I made the pissssssspasta


Alcoholics and other substance addicts don't want to talk about their addictions in films and serials for a good reason.


it helps perform stuff you're used to do and "getting in the zone", it's not limited to programming

with that said performance takes a complete nose dive once you're drunker. worse than that the right state never lasted more than half an hour for me because I can't into moderation, more so when I'm entirely focused on something. I don't even notice I drink until it's too late

is there really that much of a difference between discord and irc at this point besides the ability to use images
they both act as chatrooms that draw people away from online communities


not really in regards to that


IRC has has a higher barrier to entry and less activity, so it draws fewer people away and doesn't keep them away 24/7.


I see Discord as a direct imageboard competitor unlike IRC. IRC is very limited in regards to things like images or channels, so I think it can exist as something to the side of an imageboard and not a replacement. Most imageboards had/have an IRC channel for staff communication or as a fallback if the site goes down at least, although #qa's histories are a bit special.
I can't see discord without thinking of imageboards or small forums that they've usurped, sort of like reddit.
Also, I hate the people that only upload things to discord servers because getting them is very annoying and I hate it and mediafire or mega are not hard to use.

best breakfast I ever had was in a hotel where I had a small blueberry muffin, toast, bacon, sausage, crepe and some oatmeal with some milk and orange juice. It's weird to think there are people out there that eat like that normally, because that's a crapload of work to prepare


really like bacon eggs and toast but probably one of the best i've had was at a diner with basically >>72576 but instead of crepes and oatmeal it was pancakes and cottage cheese


what the heck they serve you that well in hotels?


If it's a 4 stars hotel then yeah. I went to one which had a buffet and the food was top tier.


It was a buffet-like thing on the first floor. I can't imagine it was a 4-star hotel since my family could afford it and it was just some town and not something like Las Vegas

The World Map of the Internet in 2021
I'm usually very skeptical of these things published in mainstream places because it's full of the general ignorance we all expect, but he even has exhentai there and a whole continent for TOR that isn't just synonyms for 'dark' or 'mystery'.
Find anything interesting?

Huh. Just realized that 4channel and 4chan are separated. Also it seems the 4chan is approximately as big as Pixiv, which is a weird thought.

I wish the key was labelled as such. I stared at it for a good 5 or so minutes trying to figure out what 4chan, Google, and the CEO of YouTube have to do with this map.


5ch appears at least twice. Once bordering 4chan and Reddit (between the top "A" and middle "A" in the "WATER" part of "WATERMARK"), and once bordering LiveJournal near Medium (the "E" of the top watermark). Are they different entities?

Below the "E" of the bottom watermark:
>Dating Sims
>Fighting Games
No mention of anime? Unless by "Westerns" they mean anime set in or inspired by stuff set in the Wild West, but that's kind of a stretch.

A few pixels above the "K" of the bottom watermark:

Does /qa/ enjoy Rakugo?


Sadly, I'm not Japanese enough to appreciate it.


I tried. If cute girls doing it last season (or was it winter) didn't do it then nothing will


Tried listening to some after having finished Joshiraku, they were fun but quickly ran out of rakugo to watch on youtube :/
