Think of this as a book club
It can be for anime/manga new or oldfags
Stuff you read or watched recently or in the past
I posted these on livechan, but i figured i might as well post them here!
Both of these where stories made by anons on 2channel, then was adapted word for word into mangas

I discovered bunch of neat manga recently. The first one is called Nyankees. its a nice light hearted take on a classic delinquent action romp but with the main characters being cats adding some extra comedy if needed from the reminder. This i would reccomend if you enjoy a sort of deconstruction of delinquent action manga but want a bit more comedy and cats. 7/10

The second one is a wonderful wholesome manga about a cockroach that wants to make friends with humans, it kept me reading with the new situations and advancements that occurred whether this be via new characters or a changing dynamic it always managed to keep it fresh which is surprising as its a slice of life. over all nice and wholesome 8.5/10

and last but not least a nice action comedy story with kaiju no. 8 this one is more focused on the action side but still allows for some comedy to help brighten the mood every now and again. the monster designs in this are really nice and the surprise color pages are always a wonderful treat and are used sparingly enough that they make a nice impact when used.

When you've seen all the classics, it's hard to find anything else that really feels worthwhile. I find myself watching mediocre anime more often than not, and I'm sure many of you are in the same boat. That's why I've made this thread. We can share anime that we consider obscure enough to be overlooked easily, yet good enough that you'd be glad not to miss it. Note that these don't have to be totally out of the way, nor do they have to be complete masterpieces; just anything you think more people could stand to watch. I'll do a few write-ups to start us off:
>Aria the Animation
Fairly popular in some circles, but it doesn't seem to get talked about much. It's a very genuine portrayal of a beautiful, perfect world that makes me happy whenever I watch it. It's at least as good as K-On, so check it out if you liked that series.
Action with light science fiction and elements of mafia drama. The pacing is surprisingly subdued considering how absurd the fight scenes can get. The story takes place over many years and uses this to develop the characters impressively well towards a compelling conclusion. Not for people who want to take the whole thing seriously, but good if you think Shadow the Hedgehog was pretty cool.
Directed by Tomino in between Gundam and Zeta Gundam, among other things (making it not all that obscure, really). It's a mecha series, as one might expect, but it's more comedic than most of what Tomino is known for. His knack for character design shines here.

I might do more of these later, but that should do for the moment. Let me know if these aren't obscure enough, and of course, leave your own recommendations if you please.

>Space Brothers
Excellently constructed anime that combines a heartwarming story with delightful comedy, using realistic characters to show the audience just how difficult it is to become an astronaut.

Honestly not underrated, just has been forgotten over the years.


Hey everybody, I just saw another good one so I'll give it a write-up.
>Angel Cop
An OVA from the 80s, in many ways a period piece. It's violent and gory, with lots of futuristic stuff and a plot about international conspiracy. Straight out of a comic book!

Gungrave is so good, the PS2 game is really fun too but criminally short.

Wicked City is a 1987 anime film where demons secretly coexist among humans and a police force that keeps the boundary between them. If you like cheesy horror movies you'll love it. It has some cool animation and monster scenes.

Slam Dunk is one of those classics of sports anime. You always hear about it and wonder if it actually is the best thing since sliced bread. Well, it isn't. But it is funny and entertaining and worthwhile if you have the patience for it.

Imagine GTO in high school and determined to learn how to play basketball to get closer to the girl he has a crush on -- tah-dah, Slam Dunk! The story has the expected sort of "learn a skill, show a skill" repetitive story line common to a lot of sports and shounen animes, but it's punched up by a little delinquency, a little reformation, and a tiny bit of one-sided romance. The one real downside to the story is the occasional trips into a DBZ/Naruto-esque timefreeze: sometimes one basketball game takes, like, 3 episodes and you wonder how it's possible that only 2 minutes anime-time have gone by in the last 20 real-time. ;)

The art is a little rough sometimes, kind of typical for the time period. There's a lot of panning across stills and repetitive looks at the same image. It can be a little annoying, but I kept on reminding myself when it was made (1993-1996!) and I got over it. The one thing that I noticed the most was probably the fact that the key on their court looks different from a real key in a NBA or Olympic court, but I decided to stop thinking about it a few episodes in.

The character of the main character is what makes the whole thing entertaining, I think. He is brash, tactless, rough and stupid -- and, for some odd reason, really funny. Even when he gets on my nerves, he does something random and ridiculous and retarded, and it just ends up cracking me up. He's always calling himself a genius (when he doesn't know how to do anything) and laughing in this obnoxious, cocky manner and making awful mistakes, but he's somehow loveable anyway and you end up rooting for him because he's just that charismatic. The thing that's really nice about him is just how flawed he is... he's got natural athleticism, but he's far from being a natural on the basketball court and he's loyal, strong, and dedicated, but he's also impatient and hot-tempered and loud. And he's really nicely backed up by a team of interesting, diverse guys who each (eventually) get their time in the limelight and each have their own personal struggles to overcome while striving to work together as a team.

Overall, I enjoyed watching Slam Dunk -- despite the really slow pacing of some of the actualPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'll be honest: I actually take waifu-ism seriously.
My waifu is Sayaka Miki. I feel legitimate love toward her. I often fantasize we're together. God, what I would give to have her next to me...
I find her the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. She's idealistic, kind, and kinda brash which I like.

I wanna be with her for the rest of my life.

So for all that keep in touch with virtual youtubers, what is the status of Mira Akari? Is she still popular? I met her twice a few years back and she seems like a nice young girl. Seemed full of life but quirky at times. Just wonder how she has been since it's been awhile. Hope she is doing alright still. TIA!

Almost all vtubers use anime-style avatars and you also posted one such example. And to any new people, who are not familiar with the subject, it also seems like anime-related stuff. In any case, I'd encourage you to broaden the topic and throughout this thread focus more on vtubers in general, not just one character, in order to give this thread a longer lifespan.

That is fine with me. I don't mind if it goes off topic. Just wanted to know what is up with Mirai that's all, but feel free to talk about whatever. I don't really know anything about youtubers since ive never really watched them. Only read fanfiction, doujinshi and played around with MMD models of them. Just wondering if she is ok, it being the holidays and all.

The first episode just came out. Thoughts? I think it's promising. Starting to feel the hype. The animation quality hasn't dropped as much as I thought it would, what with the change in studios.

There's definitely effort being made in the animation and it doesn't stop me from enjoying it. People are overreacting in it "looking like garbage", but let's be real. The show looks better than what you usually see seasonly.

On another note, that effect on the metal for Genos and G4 does look really odd. Never seen something like that.
