Sora no Otoshimono is the best harem comedy.

PLEASE Give SnO (Heaven's lost property) a try. Watch season 1 then read the manga, or just read the manga without the anime, both work.

I still can't believe how hard this show dropped the ball. After watching the first episode I thought I was in for the sleeper hit of the decade. What the fuck was the point of the politics? Why did Carole & Tuesday have this sympathetic story line when they were cruising on easy streak while their rival was the one that went through hardship after hardship? And they're just randomly super good friends because they played music a couple of times? I don't know how you spend 24 episodes doing absolutely nothing for the main characters while the rival actually gets a pretty good character arc.

Toei animation - The soul of anime
Toei appreciation thread
Friendly reminder before we start that only a newbie trying to fit in would trash talk toei animation. gegege, precure, doremi, digimon, broly, robot girls z, tigermask... it takes 3 seconds to look and see that toei isn't "the dragon ball super 5" studio. Please look into things before trying to badmouth them online.

In 48 japan animation films was founded and would later in 56 become toei animation. A big portion of the studios existing today formed from ex toei, and most of the big names have either worked or currently work with toei. Toei could be easily credited for kickstarting anime as we know today, and always remained innovative, creative, and passionate, making anything from TV anime, to videogame animation, to OVAs, to ONAs, to films. If somebody were to ask "what is anime" the best answer would likely be to sit them down with some toei.
Toei's incredible innovation in limited animation techniques allowed them to make series that are beautiful, longform, and high quality such in the hokuto no ken, dragon ball, and sailor moon in the past, and gegege and precure in the present.

Toei were innovators in the field of digital animation and used retas back in the mid 90s, it's likely that their contribution helped ease some of the pains of moving away from cel.TOei animation always experiments with new ideas, One of their most notable recent experiment was learning how to capture pencil line width variation properly for animation.

"The new digimon looks so good I can't believe it's not butter" - edition
Gegege ran for almost 100 episodes and not 1 of them was lame. How did they do that? Why can I not stop thinking about holding hands with Nekomusume?
I don't keep up with one piece but damn I need to watch stampede
Every single one of the Doremi ONAs was subbed and is on nyaa. Thank you very much for the subbers. Please give it a watch, it's very charming.

Sword Art Online appreciation thread
The only people talking shit about SAO are people so stupid they can't form an opinion of their own so they just parrot shit e-celebs says instead of actually paying attention to the writing.
"Kirito is a Gary Stu" has always been a meme. Kirito struggles a ton and frequently needs help. There's not a single major antagonist that he defeats on his own without help, usually he wins after fucking up a bunch so that somebody dies because of him. He suffers from PTSD, survivors guilt and depression throughout the show until it gets so bad that he ends up spending most of a season getting carted about in a wheelchair cause it was too much for him and he ends up catatonic.

The series has always been good.

I just randomly started reading this manga and so far I think it's pretty good. Just got to the chapter where the characters talk about how if they're all immortal, what will they do when humanity dies out or if the Earth is destroyed, and I thought that was a really cool question to ask. I also JUST found out that's it's a sequel to negima? I've never read or watched it, but I was wondering if the experience was enhanced or dulled if I did. Either way it's a fun battle manga.

How the fuck do you go from a fine albeit thin lovie like 5centimeters, to this, and how do you go from this to Your Name?

And WHY do all the reviews find it either "fine if you like ghibli" or "fantastic, really makes you think"!?
