  1. Hi everyone, The forum will be undergoing a major core update which will result in some downtime whilst the update is applied. The updates will include some UI improvements as well as significantly improved performance with the themes, particularly for mobile users. Also please note, we are suspending the Member Shop and Trophies/Medals features due to lack of developer support. We are looking at bringing these back in a new form sometime in the near future. Thank you for your ongoing support.

  5. Cybersix, a true classic. I was so glad for the rerelease. It was rather well written. The Dragon Prince really is very well animated (reminds me of anime) and has a great story too. I actually enjoy The Dragon Prince far more than Avatar.

  6. I can assure you the first three series are well worth it if science fiction is your thing. Another one that comes to mind, and I know this is a bit odd, but I honestly do think of of a lot of anime fans when I think of this show. MLP FIM honestly attracted a lot of anime fans once upon a time myself included. While I am not really into it anymore I do understand it is likely one of the best western animation series of recent years which from my perspective is saying a lot as I am hyper coital of western animation.

  7. For an obscure one from the past, there’s Cybersix, which was based on a Argentine comicbook, animated in Japan and directed/produced in Canada One of the things that stood out from other “cartoons” was the title character’s superhero persona was female but posed as a male school teacher as her alter ego. Believe it or not it actually aired on Fox Kids

  10. I guess..my favourites change everytime I watch a new anime..but I guess the ones which come to mind right now are Oregairu and your lie in April...I have more but I guess that'd be too much to discuss at once......as to why I like em...I guess because of the emotional and romantic aspect of it...I've always liked romance in movies but...anime romance is somethin' else..I personally don't have any plans to engage romantically with anyone at any point of time in my life..but..anime romance just...energizes me to be better..if that makes any sense......and then there's tragedy...and heartbreak.

  14. Omg some of you guys surprised me with your ages. Makes me feel like a child again, lmao. I'm currently 28 and started watching anime when I was around 5 or 6 (with Pokemon and Digimon of course, lol). My first actual adult anime was Ghost In The Shell and Wolf's Rain and I think I was 11 or 12.

  15. Exhausted, trying to juggle a social life and failing. I had surgery on my thyroid gland since it was literally choking me. Sleeping and turning my neck has been a pain but it's getting better. Got to bake a few things for October before the surgery! Pretty nervous about the tension going on right now. It's been getting a little heated in my area and I'm worried about my friends and family. Surgery has given me an excuse to have more time to myself. I've been reading up a storm! Got through six books in half the month, it was blissful. Right now I'm sitting by my window, listenin

  16. As a member who's been here for nearly 5 years I can say that this forum has gone through so many phases and changes, the community has slowly gotten smaller throughout the years and as Kohloo said the need for forums has just died off because of things like Discord, but I do feel like this forum always will have a core group that stay active with maybe the 1 in every 10 new members staying active.

  17. well personally i started off with darling in the franxx and kinda sorta stayed in the romance genre.. I guess it all depends on your personal preference of what you wanna watch are you a romantic? or do you like horror or drama or etc..

  18. Welcome to the forums, hope you enjoy it here For something music related, I would recommend checking out Carole & Tuesday. For something similar to Darling in the Franxx , maybe Evangelion or Godannar. As to what I’m enjoying right now, that would be Jujutsu Kaisen & Akudama Drive. Hope you decide to stay around.

  19. I’m sure that part of any falloff in forum activity is likely related to all the wackiness of 2020. I know I’m far busier this year than last. I don’t have nearly as much time for things like games, anime, or online forums. I’m sure it is the same for a lot of other people. Also all the cons that tend to generate buzz have been cancelled or postponed, as have a number of animes themselves. Games, movies, lots of other stuff as well. Less stuff to talk about overall. For me specifically I also don’t see the types of anime that I like. I’m into “hard” science fiction like Planetes or

  21. The first part of it is decent, after a certain arc though it just gets worse. Depends though on what you like I suppose, if you like battles with increasing powerlevels, similiar to dbz, then bleach as an entirety is decent. I personally have a problem with it, in that after a certain arc, it kinda feels like nothing really happens in terms of progression of the relationships etc... and also, even though they get much stronger and stronger as the show goes on, the show kinda has to patch it's own holes as it goes, similiar to dbz wherein they're so powerful they can just destroy the

  23. My dad has actually been a weeb for at least 20 years since i was born, and so when i was really young, it just rubbed off on me and now a lot of the anime I watch is something my dad recommended to me, or is something that we both wanted to watch together. And honestly, I think that is the best way to watch anime.

  25. When i was a young boy every Saturday night i would stay up and watch a anime block called Bionix, it was an anime block for a Canadian channel called YTV. I use to be fascinated with shows like .hack//Sign, Case Closed, Eureka Seven, Inuyasha, Naruto, Witch Hunter Robin, and Zatch Bell. In the Morning on Saturdays i would wake up early to watch animes on 4kids, for example One Piece, Shaman King, and Yugioh. These sort of shows inspired me to tape (Yes i am that old) anime off of these television blocks so i could watch them later. As a teenager when i got my laptop, i would torrent leg

  26. Assassin's Creed Valhalla (PS4) I just recently started this game and I'm absolutely stunned by the graphics. The only real downside i see so far is that the game is a bit laggy and sometimes glitches. Other than that it's beautiful. Can't wait to dive farther in.

  28. Maybe its not a big part of the show but I liked the inclusion of Peni Parker in Into the Spider-Verse. Her exaggerated visual and character tropes were perfect for what the movie was going for. I'm sure there were more subtle nods to anime in Spiderverse, given how influential Japanese animation has been on the world in general, but I need to re-watch it.

  29. do people set their TV's to like, maximum brightness or something? im pretty sure that burn-in is a result of, when the brightness is left to like, very high at prolong durations, and thus the LED or something gets stacked? or dies out? or something along those lines? (dont quote me on this, im not an expert) dunno, im not really an expert in these topics, i only know as much as the next anime guy i also dont really have the new consoles aswell, i probably dont plan on getting it either, what with sony censorship being very high, my will to keep in touch when them has di

  34. I do. I don’t play many of those super-linear games anymore because then I feel need to play it “perfectly” to get a challenge out of it. Probably not explaining that well but it is just a personality quirk in my head that makes me endlessly replay games that I feel I finished too quickly or too easily until I get a perfect score or all the Easter eggs or all the bonus loot or whatever. I also do things like “speed running” a game and trying to beat the clock. If I’m playing (for instance) a game like sudoku on my phone that doesn’t have a score or a time limit I still feel like I didn’

  36. I didn't mean to make it seem like I was saying there was a conversation of the two series regarding their fillers, so much as it was that Bleach literally got canned because of them, but for Naruto, all we really get is "just skip the fillers" like it's not a big thing. Even if they weren't compared directly, to me, it always felt like a double standard. Bleach has interesting fillers that tell interesting stories, Naruto repeats the same arc for literal years in a row, one gets canceled, one is still going without any real interruption.

  37. Hey everyone! So I wanted to start this discussion to get some feedback from everyone! So I just started watching anime a few months ago, but I am absolutely and utterly obsessed. I am addicted to the fanart and fanfictions, I've rewatched my favorite scenes MANY times, and I started buying some merch of my favorite shows. I also love some of the characters so much that I wishhhh they were real. Do some of you feel similarly? If so, what are some of your favorite shows/characters?

  38. “Anime” is like “books”. There is no typical age. Over the years the biggest determinant as to how much anime I’ve watched hasn’t been my age so much as how busy I’ve been with everything else in my life. Recreational activities like books, games, or anime has to get a lower priority than things like job and family commitments. The only thing that has changed over the years is the type of anime I watch, books I read, or games I play when/if I get the chance, not the desire to watch/read/play them itself.

  40. If we’re talking sequels, Attack on Titan is what I would consider the obvious choice since it will be the grand finale. It’s actually scheduled to begin in December (the 6th). On the slice of life side of things, I’m looking forward to Yuru (Laidback) Camp in January. While the short series this year was disappointing, I’m hopeful the official second season will recapture what made it my all time 2nd favorite SOL series. If you’re up for some emotional drama, the finale of Fruits Basket (2019) is scheduled for sometime in 2021 (probably April at the earliest). And in clos

  43. Hoo boy that's a big yikes from me. But anyway, I don't think this question is framed right. It's indirectly implying that finding underaged children attractive at the age of 70 is any more unacceptable than at say, 35. Teen anime characters are often oversexualised and that's just one of the many characteristics of anime as a whole that set it apart from Western media. This is in part thanks to Japanese culture and age of consent, which, when put into context, makes it a little more bareable. At that point it falls on you and where your own boundaries lie. However, anime char

We all have our inner cosplay persona. Share with us any looks you’re working on, have done, thinking about...well you get the point!
