Anime & Manga Thread v.5 FAQ/IRC: See OP. Welcome to 2017


Well in my post I meant that the show wasn’t about killing cute characters period. Death is a theme in the series since the world is constantly threatening, but we’re being vague on purpose to avoid spoilers. There are tough to watch scenes, but they are done well and aren’t shallow “LOL WATCH THESE CUTE CHARACTERS SUFFER”. I don’t think it’s unreasonable for people to get frustrated when someone makes an assumption about the show based solely on the art style, despite the show being considered one of the best of the season, if not the best. The show has a lot to offer, and I’d recommend it for almost any drama/fantasy/adventure fan.


I just want a proper berserk adaptation Something past the fucking golden age arc, not the bullshit 2016/2017 level of budget please.


Sucks cuz it will prob be another 10 years or so before that happens. Can’t guarantee it’s gonna look good either. You’d expect DBS to have a huge budget, but it looks like shit.

Gotta enjoy what we got…


The Black Clover MC has the worst voice I’ve heard in awhile. Usually I’d give a show like this a few episodes to introduce more characters but I simply cannot stand this guy. Every time he yells it’s like the dying scream of a cat or something and he’s always yelling so there’s no breaks.


Yeah that voice made Black Clover the quickest show I’ve dropped. Couldn’t stand it to the point I stopped watching in a few minutes.


I enjoy UQ Holder still and want to firmly motorboat adult Yukihime at every given moment.


So I am trying to figure out how to get this light novel money. Thinking I am going to make the polar opposite of normal isekai story. An old evil wizard that is trying to become a lich but fucks up in his ritual/has it interrupted by the heroes and it transports him, his familiar, and the heroes to the regular world. Has there ever been a story like that? I know “The devil is a part timer” is close but that’s not even remotely the tone I am going for.


Same. Turned the show off after ~2 minutes.

I would say, based on the genres that they drew from, that RE:Creators is also kind of close to what you’re talking about. Otherwise the only things that are similar are Western cartoons. I would say that Gargoyles is similar and that there are more than a few shows who’ve dedicated an episode or two to a premise similar to the one you’ve described. All this is to say that the reverse isekai genre would seem to be much less close to being choked to death by volume of production than the normal isekai genre is.


Most light novels that we get exposed to are actually refined web novels lucky enough to win the lottery and catch the attention of publishing companies in Japan. There is a huge amount of trashy web novels out there and the vast majority of them are shameless isekai stories with harems and overpowered protagonists in an MMORPG-like world.

Isekai is cancer.



Shokugeki knows what’s up.



It’s one of my favorite series due to how simple yet entertaining it is. Unfortunately, not all of the food science in it is accurate, or they’re over-dramatized (e.g., honey won’t break down proteins like in the show).


New My Hero Academia chapter dropped on mangastream.

On mobile so I can’t post link


Can’t even front but Kyoani got me excited for their new show.

Wish we could get a Battle Angel show that looked like this so bad…


I got one of the last tickets to watch Heaven’s Feel.


Oh they are showing it at the Alamo draft house? I always forget about that place.


Oh yeah I almost forgot, they remade Kino’s Journey but it seems like it’s actually different from the old show unless I am tripping. @crucades might actually like it if he is man enough.

edit: oic they are doing it in a different order from the original.



This the show?


Yup it’s a remake, good show. It’s episodic like Kekkai Sensen so I am sure your short attention span having ass will love it. It’s funny because it is so chill but then goes from zero to DIE in less than 6 seconds.
