The summer season so far looks like it’s going to be absolutely atrocious. Prison School is going to be so bad.

It depends on what type of nut. Almonds are far superior unsalted.

“I believe the Earth is flat” is more of a self-observation than an opinion. And “The Earth is flat” as a statement is a false claim, not an opinion.

I always seem to find most anime to be tedious and boring, but I know there are some gems out there. Does anyone know any animes that are similar to Death Note, Gosick, Heaven’s memo pad etc. I really like sort of crime and deduction/case-solving type stuff

Psycho Pass and the Detective Conan manga

What’s a good anime to start with?

It depends. What types of movies/TV shows/books do you usually enjoy?

I’m pretty open minded to new things, but I do find myself enjoying zombie movies and comedies, but when it comes to books they’re mostly for educational purposes rather than enjoyment.

Maybe try Hataraku Maou-sama, Baccano!, or Angel Beats. They’re all light-hearted series that deal with the supernatural.

Sounds good wonder which one I should start with.

Baccano! isn’t a great introduction to anime due to its nonlinear storytelling and Hataraku Maou-sama plays with a few tougher anime tropes so…Angel Beats, maybe? Reactions to it in this thread (and in many other communities) are generally polarized though, so I would suggest watching the first couple of episodes and seeing if it’s your type of thing. If not, I would check out something of a different flavor like Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood or any of those other anime I mentioned earlier.

Wait, what? Miyazaki is extremely well known, even among people who don’t watch anime.

I wasn’t aware of that. (The more you know)

You haven’t heard anyone talking about Spirited Away or Howl’s Moving Castle? That’s pretty surprising.

Edit: If I recall correctly his latest movie was also pretty big. It was even featured in Time Magazine.

That doesn´t make any sense, posting on the forum takes 5 seconds and i can do it with my phone, you guys watch this shit over 5 hours a day.

I average around an hour of anime a week nowadays. You probably spend more time on OT than I do watching anime.

I’ve always wondered. What would an elitist’s top 5 manga be?

In my mind, it would go something like this:
1. Oyasumi Punpun
2. 20th Century Boys
3. Yokohama Shopping Log
4. Aria
5. Monster

What does elitist even mean, though? If you mean something along the lines of “a poser who watches shows they consider deep in order to seem intellectual”, I guess it would be:

Homunculus
Aku no Hana
Berserk (?)
Something by Junji Itou
Something by Inio Asano

but then again those are all manga I like, so maybe I should call myself an elitist

Yoooo you should definitely read Oyasumi Punpun. And Tokyo Ghoul too since the anime is probably going to end very differently.

Actually, I was planning to hit that up (Oyasumi Punpun) next, but I got sidetracked because I accidentally read some spoilers. It looks great- I can’t wait!
I’ll wait until the anime’s over to read Tokyo Ghoul.
If anyone cares, here’s what I read so far (not all of them are totally sad/depressing)
Velvet Kiss → Koe no Katachi → The Flowers of Evil (Manhwa) → Solanin → NHK ni Youkoso! → Onani Master Kurosawa → Sundome (reading)

Damn, those are all really great (haven’t read Velvet Kiss though). Koe no Katachi and Onani Master I saw as more uplifting than depressing, but they’re both some of my all time favorites along with Sundome and maybe NHK (I preferred the anime). I’m not going to spoil Sundome for you but the ending is slightly soul crushing. You might want to hit up on some Yotsuba afterward to clean your mind.

And I’m actually reading Solanin right now and loving it!

Maaaan, I loved Onani Master. It was both dramatic and uplifting at the same time. Kurosawa definitely one of my favorite characters, despite being so… weird.
Did you read Chikan Otoko? It’s by the same person, and even better than Onani Master, I must say.

Completely agree, I couldn’t stop thinking about Onani Master for a couple of months after I reading it.

I actually have read Molester Man, but didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as OMK. None of the characters really worked that well for me, and the internal dialogue the MC had going on got really tedious at times. Still worth it for that god-tier ending tho

I could never get into this album. The whole thing just seemed kinda dull to me.


Currently relistening to Deerhoof’s discography. Amazing band, definitely check them out if you’re into noise rock or w/e (no idea what genre they actually belong to).

Watching Katanagatari and about half way through. Only 12 episodes but each episode is 50 minutes long. Apparently this anime was aired once a month too. That’s harsh.

I’ve been meaning to watch that series, but I don’t know where it starts. There’s like 5 different titles. Monogatari, Nekomonogotari, Bakemonogotari, and Nisemonogotari in addition to the one you mentioned, I think. What’s the chronological/watch order for it?

While the source materials of all the -gataris you mentioned were written by the same light novel author, Katanagatari is from a completely different series than the rest.

Watch the Monogatari Series in this order: Bakemonogatari —> Nisemonogatari —> Nekomonogatari: Kuro —> Monogatari Series S2 —> Hanamonogatari —> Tsukimonogatari

Katanagatari is a standalone series w/ only one season.

Death Note

Spice and Wolf

There are others I’m sure, some have their flaws. I think Steins;Gate was pretty good with their dub but…I also disliked some tuturus

Baccano 4sure. Really goes well with the American mafia setting
