I'm always up for Digimon. Looking forward to that next movie.

I'm watching Darwin's Game, and I like it less now because they gave more screentime to the girl with a monotonous voice. I'm getting Meteora from Re:Creators vibes here, and I dropped that show.

Holy shit that Ni No Kuni movie (that's on Netflix now) was bad. That has to be one of the worst written movies I've ever seen regardless of genre, and visually it's like a bargain bin Ghibli imitation.
The fuck are you doing Level 5? You had a nice little franchise there and have completely botched it with a disappointing sequel and this shit show.

Did anyone else watch it? It was so bad I sort of want to talk about it lol

The Drifting Classroom? I don't think it is the greatest manga ever hell it isn't even as good as Nickelodeon/Melancholia. (Dowman)
Not saying it's the greatest ever but I liked it a lot. Better than your weeb shit.

drifting classroom is great when i'm in the mood for watching some fucked up shit happening to fictional characters.

they're going to burn him and then skewer him.
Why is smut horror not considered "weeb shit"? Or anything edgy for that matter? I don't think anything is "weeb shit" outside stuff like 7 Sins. Even then I would just consider it "shit" made to sell figures if anything.

weeb shit is stupid shit with girls or high school shit.
Weeb is an obnoxious person that is obsessed with Japanese media and sees no faults in said media. A term people like to sling inaccurately on gayming forums. Japanese media itself isn't weebshit by association but it may be for (you) and (them). Sorta how people call fighters anime when 99% of all fighting games are fucking Japanese. Wait.

Weeb shit is the shit normal people can't or won't watch without being embarrassed. Clannaids, K-on, hidamari sketchu, Boku no koku aku majou bokuchi harem high school desu, etc.

Normal people? You mean the people that cry at CGI purpleman? You mean the people that watch a show that opens with incest and followed a tv drama about zombies even after it went to shit? Or DISNEY'S STAR WARS? That's right Jay! Of course they couldn't watch a show about not playing music and eating cakes all day. But that doesn't make it weeb shit IMO.
imo the lingo is stemming from normies' mentality of refusing to correlate themselves with anything they perceive as weakness.

I imagine the way people understand the term "weeb" has started changing when the combination of
broadband internet + youtube + twitter et al. + smartphones
gave everyone easy access to Japanese videos and photos.

So knowing a lot about Japan is no longer a criteria for "weeb". I must admit those times are gone now.
But blurting out "hnng~ kawaii desune~" in front of people is still a breach of decorum, no one should do that.

In most cases, being a anime fan (weeb) is perceived as a sign of weakness within normies' social circles.
TBH I don't even consider myself a weeb. Sure I like manga some anime and some of their music but I don't think they (Japan) are the best at everything. I dress normally, don't have any naruto headband things and only have one rapevan! (that was a joke) The broad term normalfriends use and what you call weeb shit is far from it normalfriend. Media is far too bland to only focus on srs stuff which is why we have people that used to pick on the people that read comic books nerds and now cry over spooderman dying or cheer for serial killers. Or...OR watch MHA after they talked down to DB fans in high school. You know back when DB was decent? Yeah!


Different media, genres and variety are a good thing, no matter the country of origin. K-pop still sucks though.

dude, come on. weeb shit is alright.
did i say it wasnt?

The other day I saw a user comment on a Jojo video on youtube and the guy was convinced he can be a Jojo fan and NOT be a weeb. I can see how he would think that after watching Jojo Golden Wind.
jojo is some of the most normie fucking shit. back when i started reading it in 2005 it was weeb but now its not.

ok, normies, normans, etc.

reddit letter memeia sucks

thats not the point. they aint gonna watch that little girl shit no matter what. if something is mainstream it is no longer weeb.

TBH I don't even consider myself a weeb.
but you still are one.

K-pop still sucks though.

It became popular outside Japan after existing as a series for over 20 years? YOU DON'T SAY! Normalfaahahaha stuff is OP, Naruto and DB more than anything. WAY more popular than Jojo anyway.

reddit letter memeia sucks
Movies suck.
thats not the point.
It is
but you still are one.
That word has lost all meaning and even then I only am one if you are going by post election 4channel shit of "I watch 3 shows a week"

I am feeling ignorant when reading this. Please explain further.

THIS is weeb shit. A bunch of kids running like morons.

I've re-watched after all those years Girl who leapt through time, and I have to say, it's one of my favourite movies ever. That ending though...
I really wish Chiaki would stay with Makoto. Damn you japanese brats and your bittersweet tastes ;p
But yeah, easily for me 10/10. Anything similar to this?
you can start watch Momoru Hosoda's work....there tons of gems there like Summer wars, Wolf Children, The boy and the Beast...he definitely one of the best in industry and a movie stamped with his name is must watch...you can watch his latest work last year that also had time travel element, Mirai

I'm actually enjoying the Murenase Seton adaption. The initial promotional poster had me really worried with the artstyle they were going to use. I've been laughing every episode and look forward to it each week. The show adapting chapters out of order kind of threw me for a loop. I love the naked mole rat TV crew, especially the one in jeans, t-shirt, and the backwards baseball cap.

I just blew my birthday money on Lupin III stuff. Got the Bye Bye Lady Liberty Blu Ray and the first two dvd sets of part II. I also finally grabbed the SFII animated movie.

Whack season. Gonna stick to my mangas until next season
I like weak seasons. They give me time to watch old shows.

Edit: this is the calm before the storm. This year we're getting Oregairu S3, Kingdom S3, AoT S4, and Dragon Quest no Daibouken reboot to mention a few. I'm sure I'm missing something else

I saw some preview screencaps of Men Of Culture Ishuzoku Reviewers episode 4, and, holy shit, they're almost 1-1 with the manga. Extremely NSFW.

So this is basically (current) Monster Musume then but with coolkyo masha art? I think I read 2 chapters of this before but I don't remember much of it.

Shitflix needs to fucking die or stop raping anime. Everything they've had a hand in is shit. Also lets guess who's gonna be race swapped? Probably Nami since she's a redhead.

It's Ener or Eneru

Mediocre anime (can't be helped the first part of the game is the worst really) but the OP is decent. Also HOW DOES A1 KEEP GETTING WORK?

Couldn't care less atm about any live action One Piece. The imagination is sacrificed at that point and I know it will disappoint heavily, most likely

I finished the Zou arc in One Piece not too long ago, there was an extremely epic moment that took place in Zou, and this song played while it took place. Beautifully and perfectly utilized during the anime, it was perfect

For all the One Piece fans,

Can you please rate, in your opinion, the entirety of the Whole Cake Island arc? How is it, if you had to rate out of 10?

And describe it, in one word, without spoiling anything? How did you feel about it, if you can attribute one word to it? I'm going to watch it over the next few months or so

I only read the manga so I couldn't speak about the animation or pacing in the anime. But Cake Island was a solid 8 for me, definitely one of the better recent arcs.
It got me back to actually looking forward to each new chapter every week so I guess "exciting" would be the word

Right on, that's a solid score. I can't even wait for Wano arc to finish, because I want to wait for that to conclude before watching it, and I know I'm going to run through Whole Cake Island arc despite being like 90 or so episodes. Wano arc, just wow.......I can't believe how hype it's going to get. And that is just from what they set up for us to know in Zou! It's going to be legendary, I'm sure

Thanks for the input
