  1. Started Nichijou. Hakase seems more malicious than she is in the anime. Poor Nano...
  2. Recently found out the YKK manga is getting a French translation. Incredibly blessed news


  3. From experiences in coding communities, I'll just say it gets annoying when newcomers ask the same questions without putting in the effort to lurk already existing posts and documentation. Its unfortunate that people are overly hostile towards casual users like this, but it does help set expectations about what participating in technical communities actually entails. With that out of the way, in communities that are more socially-focused, gatekeeping is an awful thing. We've commoditized culture so much that acquiring specific knowlegde and experience is more important than actuall
  4. Experiencing episode 1 of Dallos for the first time. The blend of 80's music, cel animation and futurist space imagery is rather nostalgic
  5. Just finished Gabriel DropOut. Imo, Raphi is a critically underappreciated tenshi when it comes to fan favorites
  6. Howdy howdy, Always nice to have more people in the community. Hope you enjoy it here!
  7. Came across this and initially saw it as a meme, but now I've kind of unironically adopted it. "Suffering builds character" just wasn't cutting it as a reward for studying anymore.

  8. Kenji Miyazawa - Once and Forever Came across an old bare-bones html website a while ago on this interesting poet. Out of curiosity, I picked up a translated collection of his stories. The tales so far have been simplistic and folksy, but incredibly comfy reads. Miyazawa's stories have been adapted into children's anime, so I might go poking around for those after I finish the book.
  9. Yo, happy new years? I feel like these past weeks have been difficult for everyone. Here's to hoping the rest of 2021 goes by better.


    Hope you all had a safe and happy holiday season

    Hi no Tori: Dougo Onsen Hen

    Adorable little mini-series made to promote conservation efforts at Dо̄go onsen. Hi no Tori characters, redrawn in a modern style, felt at home wiith the mythic history of the hotsprings. Stories went by incredibly quickly, so it felt like a lot of information was glossed over.

    Hi no Tori

    IN BRIEF: Hi no Tori, or in English, Phoenix is an adaptation of famed mangaka Osamu Tezuka's unfinished work. The series is a collection of 5 short story arcs who are united by brief appearances by the titular Phoenix, and a focus on humanity's progress through difficult transitions. Each arc is 1 - 4 episodes in length, and it is better to watch and absorb a single arc at a time than binge the entire series. The art style and narrative elements can feel a bit dated to the contemporary anime fan, but its one I recommend if you can look past those things. IN DEPTH: The series d
  12. Hey, welcome to the forums! Things are a bit slow here, but hopefully you'll find what you're looking for. Nice! That's sort of my area of interest as well. Any series in particular? Akira and early Ghibli are some of my personal art style favorites
  13. Same here. I had this happen to me the last two years I've been in NorCal, and I was hoping it wouldn't be as bad down in SoCal as well. Guess this is going to be something us California people are going to have to keep dealing with moving forward
  14. When I first began watching anime, I had a rather limited access to streaming services and fan communities. That meant I watched DBZ, Code Geass, FMAB and Gurren Lagann long after my friends had finished them and moved onto greener pastures. But what I liked most was that when I watched these, their fanbases had already passed their golden ages of fan content: The best fan theories/art/posthumous dissections stood out as ones that was worth paying attention to, even long after the popularity of the series had declined. As an example, I still return to Digi's K-On: a Loving Thesis whenever I
  15. Howdy fellow newcomer! If we're going by genre, I usually end up watching slice-of-life and dramas. Love series that are off the beaten path or have fallen out of public awareness
