Jesus christ man, get your shit together.
I don't even care about mixing western stuff in the "Japanese essentials" but fuck you for that shitty chart
Do you guys read stuff online/browse 4chan while watching Anime? I personally can't do both at once, when I check shit out online while watching anime, I get really distracted and miss important details/dialogue, so I'm a shitty multitasker. Am I just a dumbass?
Nope, can't do it. I eat while I watch anime, but as a rule I never watch dubs... So that means I have to rewind a lot as it is to read what characters said, if I look down at my food at the wrong time.
Why does she sit like that?
Is this accurate?
ITT girls who just tsundere for boys.
She'd say yes if he asked her but she isn't too bothered to pursue him herself.
Amanchu anime set for summer 2016
What's the general consensus about Amagami? Who is the best girl?
How many couples have there been in anime where their romance is subtle and comes from intense admiration and respect for eachother?
I think so. It's been a long time
Its ok to cry, right?
He only has to not feel guilty about getting a boner for Nymphy-san and all is fine. I sure wouldn't.

>Mayaka finally gives Oreki a genuine, warmhearted smile
This was better than any ending.
My fantasy is Oreki fucking both Mayaka and Chitanda while Satoshi cries in the corner.
Set up that scene a little please, its been awhile since I watched the show.
And now, what would you do in this situation?
Well that went well all things considered.
>Call the police
>Grab the bat & have at your best friend
>Leave & run away like your father did before you
>Have a clam discussion with friend explaining why it wouldn't work out between the girl
Just went from watching old 80s and 90s OVAs to watching the newest Dragon Ball movie.
Holy crap, why is modern animation so awful?
Because 80's/90's OVA weren't traditional anime products are to be consumed by a niche audience that would see the difference in the quality of the animation when compared to mainstream anime.
The issue is that after the success of Evangelion, the more niche animation because more "mainstream" and so they went from having months to work on a single OVA to produce series for late TV slots. The industry keep evolving and with Japan constant deflation and crisis every market started to shrink to basically become niche markets. The Japanese Otakus became the ONLY profitable market and studios started to pander to them EVEN more but on a more busy schedule.
Now do you see how and why the animation has gotten worse? Also this also happens with almost every entertainment product in Japan.
1. Way too many studios working on way too many different shows.
2. The shit pay has driven a lot of would-be animators into other fields. The people who go into it now tend to be people really in love with anime, and they only really know how to draw anime.
3. Idolification means that voice actors command top dollar.
4. Everything is rushed. No one takes their time anymore. A product that used to be entirely made by one or two studios within driving distance now involves flip, gook and increasingly chink...
