  1. What manga are you currently reading?

    Reading Ryushika Ryushika, which is basically Yotsuba&! by way of Yoshitoshi Abe. The girl is slightly less innocent and there's less focus on the characters around her and her positive influence on them, and more focus on the gags that result from the girl's wild imagination. Also, it gets pretty psychedelic sometimes. It's 10 volumes in full colour, though I don't think all of it is translated. Recommended, anyway, especially if you like Yotsuba.
  2. Anime (and VN's) With Loli Herione as the Official Romance

    Kodomo no Jikan, perhaps? Starts out as a creepy sexual comedy with a teacher (23, innocent) and a 9-year old girl trying to seduce him, but later it turns out she gets mentally and physically (not sexually) abused by her uncle, and drama/romance ensues as the teacher tries to help her get over her various traumas.
  3. Fuwanovel Confessions

    Confession: Today was the first time I genuinely flipped out at someone on the internet. Now I feel like shit. Please tell me I'm right Feel free to rate my performance objectively https://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1598850&show=0#msg49970400 (I'm coenraed)
  4. Any interest in reviving the Fuwa VN Reading Club for April?

    I haven't read a new vn in months, so this might be a good motivation. I'm in!
  5. Winter 2017 Anime Discussion

    That's just like me and South Park I'm only watching Maid Dragon, LWA and Demi-chan at this point. I've warmed up to the latter a bit, I like the honest/mature-ish writing enough to want to keep watching, even though I still find the presentation mediocre
  6. Rating Things a 10/10

    I do think there's a value in always having an average score of around 5, because it means you're making the most of the space you have. I only watch/read stuff I expect to enjoy and almost never give scores below a 7, and I consider that a weakness, since it means I have no real idea of what I hate.
  7. How would you introduce animes to your parents ?

    I'd guess almost any adult can understand, enjoy and appreciate Wolf Children, as well as most Ghibli films. However, I wouldn't really call those good introductions to anime, as they aren't really in any way connected to the common style and tropes of anime, if there is such a thing. That said, I don't think you'll ever get the average parent to enjoy something like Lucky Star, Madoka Magica or Kill la Kill, no matter how gradually you build up to them. Basically, just try to show them things that are somehow similar to what they already like.
  8. What Anime are you watching now?

    Watched TTGL. No words are large enough. Cried several times in the last 2 episodes. 10/10 if I ever saw it. It's amazing how Imaishi's direction can just make you accept every absurd technicality the writer throws at you.
  9. Anyteam who is translating Little Buster Kud wafuu?

    https://myanimelist.net/news/49226044 At least you'll get this
  10. Waifu WARS!

    Oh wow, there's actually a thread for this. I mostly agree with what Ariurotl said, like, over a year ago. I only use the term to describe a character I would probably have a crush on if she were real (dunno if it means we'd be compatible, but whatever. It's just speculation anyway) Or possibly for a character that I find extremely aesthetically pleasing, regardless of their personality
  11. Winter 2017 Anime Discussion

    Saw this and then watched it, That was possibly the first time I've ever been dissappointed in an episode not being longer. Kanna is so adorable it hurts, dude edit: also, seems like they really aren't planning to use the titty bounce sounds much beyond episode 1
  12. Help regarding anime production process

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz4ZjuO7HrynjRrRlur1yWg This guy does a lot of research and has some pretty good spotlight videos of specific studios and people As for backgrounds, the most famous and influential background artist would be Shichiro Kobayashi, and there's some pretty good stuff about him in english; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxpGRoroPko As for the production side, there's not much I can say, apart from just watch any and all documentaries you can find, Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, stuff like that.
  13. What are you listening to right now?

  14. Winter 2017 Anime Discussion

    No offense meant, but this is a meme that needs to die. Neither Kyoani nor Ufotable have bigger budgets per project than most studios, they are simply better organized and more consistent with their staff. I liked most of the second episodes I've seen so far too. I still think the presentation/execution in Demi-chan is arse, but at least the ideas and some of the character moments were interesting/funny enough to convince me to try another episode
  15. I really want to, since I've heard good things about the franchise and Suzumoto was apparently involved in both games, but I'm not especially keen on either the ps4 or vita. Really hope we'll get an eventual pc release
