New general anime thread for the Autumn season.
>>40323I was never talking about Chihayafuru. You were talking like the west has no impact at all on Japanese anime, and that's wrong.
>>40324All I ever said was buying the western BDs will not result in additional seasons, as it does very little for Japan. Then you start talking about Ghibli and Halo like it means anything.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK
>>40324Actually, dude, by the time a license is picked up domestically the ship has long since sailed in Nippon. People who were gonna buy BDs have bought them and the rest is ancillary run-off.Now, the sales in Japan may influence whether it is brought to the West, but the decision has usually been made whether to green light a second season by the time the first BDs are made available overseas.Obviously, there are exceptions to this but they do not make the rule.
>>40808That was alright. Castro was surprisingly endearing this episode.
Let's discuss video games here!TGS just ended, are you excited about any games?
found out max payne 3 won't use games for windows live, that's good. now all I need is some sort of confirmation the game won't run like hot garbage and maybe it will be OK
Diablo 3 is pretty good. I like the new skill system. It seems rather elegant. I miss my necro though. I've got some guest pass thingies if anybody's curious.
Anyone else excited about Lollipop Chainsaw? After I found out that you can unlock all the costumes but three by just playing the game I decided to get it as quickly as possible. However, I hope it's going to be sold at a lower price than usual ($100), because I really don't want to spend all that money on it. I almost never buy games new nowadays.
Put in my £5 deposit for Lollipop today, and the cute girl behind the counter told me that I will get stuff for free. Hurray for Gaystop?Also, they had a used Vita for £200 with (probably) no games. I want it. But I shouldn't. I really shouldn't. But I want it. But I have a PSP. And so many games yet to play.
I have applied your tips and got awesome results. Thanks a lot. I want to add one thing for the reader. I recently read an article by James Cruz about content republish.People are saying their site's organic traffic increases by 300% after using the content republish strategy.The official post is here :- http://roundes.com/organic-traffic-content . Do you have any idea about this? Anyway,Thanks for the awesome post.
Let me tell you a tale.It took place 2,900...no. 322 seasons ago.Well..To me it seems like only yesterday. To you, could be next week.It's a story of a girl.Known for 72 different atrocities, hmm what shall I call her..?When I first met her, her name was...Sanae! Comment too long.

New general anime thread for the Winter season.
>>40281There's not enough anything to warrant a second season considering it sold 600 BDs. Thank god.
Only good thing about the show is Mei.It is a terrible show.There are better show out there if all I want to see is just people dying.
>>40258Ano Natsu made me set my suspension of disbelief pretty high pretty early on so I can't say I found any of the later developments "cringe-worthy." They were fun. I grinned like a mother fucker when the MIB showed up.
>>40287>There are better show out there if all I want to see is just people dying.Are you sure about that? Another did the "people dying in hilarious ways" thing quite well.
Can we have a thread where we discuss our waifus? What makes them special, how long we've felt love for them and where they are from? I'm interested in what kind of girls /bun/ likes.(I hope these kinds of threads are allowed here. Apologies if they are not!)
I don't fully understand the concept of favorite bishoujo. Do you guys imagine and project yourselves interacting with them? I mean, I have a favorite 2d girl too, but I don't insert myself into any fantasies regarding her or anything like that. That just seems... silly, somehow.
>>39692I'd love to become a little girl and have a chat over a cup of tea with my favourite 2D girls.
Wait, did posts here get deleted?I think deleting posts is harmful to a community unless said posts are spam or harmful themselves!
>>39703They weren't discussing favorite bishoujos, so they went home.
Do anyone of you still play touhou frequently?I play it every 4 months. Like beat'em-ups it gets pretty boring after 2-3 hours.
I'm surprised that so many like these touhou fighters. I wanted to learn how to play it once, but these "cards" were pretty annoying.Instead i'm a huge fan of the photo games now.
i try to play it again, but between jagged alliance : BIA, and my japanese lesson i don't have the time to play it
>>39530Currently trying to 1CC UFO. But I'm not really enthusiastic about it. Playing like one run every other day.
>>39581Yeah Im kinda like that, as in just do a run or 2 then stop. Im not that great at just playing it over and over.
I haven't played a Touhou game in several months now. Dunno why, they just don't give me the same satisfaction as before. Maybe it's because of what the OP said, it gets dull after awhile.>>39573Yeah, me too. Those were the only ones I actually enjoyed playing right before I stopped playing altogether.
PLEASE!!!!! PLEASE!!! Can anybody tell me here I can download this game?!?! Every link i get is dead!!
Right here.http://www.mediafire.com/? *grabs dicks*
>>39450OH SNAP!! That showed him.
>>39452I would generally be inclined to agree with your sarcasm, but OP obviously gets frustrated fairly easily.
Be it music, equipments to enjoy said music to the fullest, or others, post about them here.Ex: your latest music purchase which sound good, discussions about headphones, or even how certain albums sound much better when you're high.
I hope this is on-topic.Is it in any way a good idea to buy musical instruments online? Specifically, I'm thinking of buying a new guitar and amp, but due to... circumstances, I wish to avoid going to the store if possible.So is it a good idea to make a purchase online without first having a feel for the wood and material, checking the tone, sustain, etc? Will reading online reviews alone be a good enough basis to make an informed decision?
>>39003I buy all my instruments online and have never had a problem. Usually I'll just check out a few youtube videos of the product I'm interested in, and look up a couple of forum threads to see if there are any outstanding quality control issues. I'm usually very happy with my purchases, but then again I'm not particularly picky about my instruments. In a couple of years' time I plan to order myself a custom-made bass guitar and that'll be online-only as well.
>>39003If possible, I would suggest on trying out the instrument at a local store before ordering it online.
It is very important to be able to try an instrument before deciding on a purchase. Buying online is fine but only if there is a flexible return policy.
I know everyone is at /jp/ getting stuff, but we can still discuss stuff here.Did you find something cool? Share it with us!
>>38830I'm guessing Zun sheds a tear each time he sees a shitty western Touhou cosplayer.
>>38883Sounds sweet, where can I join?
>>38886maybe it's a drinking game for him
>>38934But he's still alive.
New general anime thread for the Summer season.Who's still watching what?N-not that I care or anything..
>>38381I actually agreed with your points a few weeks ago, but after re-watching the series in anticipation for the finale, I've since changed my mind. The whole progression of the show in a fairy tale like sense puts the weird pacing into perspective imo. And far from "overstaying her welcome", there are only 4 really important characters in the show and Ringo is one of them. Understanding her, and her interactions with the Takakuras is pretty important to understanding the message of the show.As for the point on symbolism, I am not going defend it and say "Well that's just how Ikuhara is". However I really don't think it was all that overblown. People can read into the show as much as they want and probably find evidence of anything. But with the exception of a few episodes, the presentation was very straightforward, and the symbolism wasn't terribly important, at least not until the end.Anyway, I haven't slept for quite a while now and I'm just rambling, so if any of this sounds off to you please forgive (｀・ω・´)
So, I finally finished Pingdrum. I think it's my favourite show that's aired since Tatami Galaxy. As some have pointed out, the symbolism got a little overwhelming at times, but it's all good. I enjoy tearing up shows and poke about the inside. And it's more fun to find too much than nothing at all. Other than that the 90's throwback style was pretty cool, it had excellent scene composition and art and also something close to flawless foreshadowing.Im@s was alright I guess. A little disappointed the last episode was just a giant sakuga-splurge. But kudos for well-executed drama in a slice-of-life. In retrospective, I wish the series had been darker. Oh well.
I wanted more symbolism in Penguindrum. Something like Utena.
Bet I am gonna get flamed for it but I wasn't impressed with penguindrum. I actually love the first part of it when we were slowly given their tiny backstory bits by bits with flashback. Especiallynthe episode about sergeant frog.The second part, not so much. Too magical for my taste. Symbolism for the sake of symbolism when he should have just kept it simple.It was still a solid 6/10 though.
