I get the feeling you went into Inferno Cop expecting something instead of enjoying it for what it is and tries to be.

Once again I seriously don’t know if you’re being serious. I don’t think anybody watched Inferno Cop with any high expectations in mind. I mean, just look at the artwork…

objectively

Please don’t use that word when you’re talking about media. Especially when you invalidate it later on in the sentence by calling the artwork among other things “bad”. That’s based on your own preferences, there’s nothing objective about it.

Oregairu S2 is pretty average.

I highly disagree. How many RomComs have main characters that are actually as flawed and unsettlingly true to life like 8man? How many shows feature actual multilayered character conflict based on round characters as well as OreGairu does? I think OreGairu understands teenagers and the juvenile ways they see the world in a much more complete and nuanced fashion than almost any other anime out there.

@ Cowfriend what about sexual humor makes it seem forced to you? Or is it just the sexual humor in Gintama specifically?

OreGairu S2 is pretty much God.

it fixes every single issue that Inferno Cop had.

I can’t tell if you’re joking or not.

MAMORITAI KONO EGAO
8man is the best

man, the second episode was even better than the first. Oregairu so good.

Edit: also I think it’s funny how so many people completely miss the point of the show by idolizing 8man

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

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

Holy fuck you read quickly. How did you like Ciguatera? It’s been on my PTR list for a while now.

I’ve been on a depressing/sad manga crusade this weekend! Trying to read as much sad/depressing stuff as I can before I crack. It’s pretty stressful.

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
