Why is the omnibus manga translation so awfull compared to the anime the jokes fall flat because of it
(2.25 MB 768x576 1643744269512.png)
>>857 I don't think it's a problem with the translation, both the manga and the anime had jokes that fell flat on it's nose and some better ones.
She came from an egg, does that mean she will also lay eggs?

Historical Anime anon 03/01/2022 (Tue) 02:59:42 No. 871 [Reply]
Often overlooked, I think there's a lot of good retro anime based on historical events that get often overlooked. Let's have a thread about them. I'll start with Ai no Wakakusa Monogatari, adapted from the 1868 novel Little Women about the lives of four sisters during the American Civil War. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UUpcpiSUak
I've been meaning to watch Paris no Isabelle. Simply because I think it is neat that there is an anime set during the Franco-Prussian War.

Manabu Oohashi passed away recently. Give your respect to a legend. A MAD of his work is linked below. He is probably most well known for the Takarajima intro animation. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x70rtad
RIP. Robot Carnival and Roujin Z are some of my favorites.
>>765 RIP,I love a lot of stuff he worked on and watching Junkers Come Here during the last Christmas was the most comfy thing.
>>765 This scene made me cry Everything I've seen by Oohashi has been great I guess Westerners aren't really aware of him, unfortunately

>>778 Yeah, he doesn't quite do the right the kind of animation to get hyped in western sakuga circles unfortunately, and he's too old school.
>>765 >>779 That's some really fancy stuff, what a loss.

>>760 Thanks anon! We went out for dinner last night and are just chilling today aside from gifts. Happy Valentine's Day, I hope you're having a good one!
>>758 it's something I whipped up in twenty minutes and it's kinda meant to be obnoxiously pink lol, i might fix it up later It's good to see everyone having a nice day though, this week I'll get the new chat server up and running. Thinking about doing a fireside chat one of these days so we can all discuss what else needs to be done around here (especially in regards to ideas on how to grow the site traffic wise) Also waptv is airing tomorrow, gonna put the schedule on the front page soon
>>762 I actually rather like the pink theme lol. Also I'd definitely be down for a fireside chat to figure out a way to get more traffic, I really wanna see this place grow.
>>762 that sounds great,I can't wait for waptv!

List of Mandatory Classic Movies anon 02/01/2022 (Tue) 09:41:00 No. 506 [Reply]
Kanashimi No Belladonna (1973) is a masterpiece of tragic/erotic/psychedelic animation directed by Eiichi Yamamoto. Jeanne is a peasant who gets raped by a noble and becomes a witch; based on/inspired by La Sorcière by Jules Michelet, a treatise in the history of witchcraft. Noted for its experimental artstyle, bizarre visuals and its connection to Western classical art works like Klimt and the cubist movement, it's a unique piece of art with a moving narrative and breathtaking moments on screen.

>>555 where can I even find this movie in decent quality? There's what seems to be a 360p version on youtube, and... nothing on any of the torrent sites I know
>>559 rutracker.org
>>554 Being a Disney movie is what gives Cog's Castle its timeless energy. Liking Mamo because it's edgier makes you sound like a child.
>>743 If I want to watch a Disney movie, I'll watch a Disney movie. Hell, I'll even turn on a Ghibli film. Those films are great and there's nothing wrong with them, many are classics for a reason. Cagliostro isn't just a Disney film, it's a not very interesting Disney film. Sure there are great moments, but it's far from the best Lupin film and its far from the best Miyazaki film. If you wanted a new Cowboy Bebop film and it was a goofy Disney kid's film, it'd be more than understandable if you didn't really care for it and wanted something more adult. I'm not sure how Lupin is any different in that regard.

/av/ - Alternate Versions anon 02/12/2022 (Sat) 03:21:10 No. 740 [Reply]
Many classic anime have been re-released, re-scanned, re-mastered, and re-edited countless times. This is a thread where you can post about differences between versions of any anime, from shitty upscales and botched crops, to alternate scenes, animation, and extended cuts. Try to avoid spoilers, so that if someone checks the thread for the “definitive” version of whatever they’re trying to watch they don’t get spoiled.

(93.09 KB 800x232 gits2.0comp2.jpg)
>>740 I’ll start with a particularly (in)famous one: Ghost in the Shell 2.0. Over ten years after the original Ghost in the Shell movie was released, Mamoru Oshii went back to the film and re-worked it, changing the tint of the film from greens and blues to oranges and reds to better match that of Innocence (and possibly to distance it from The Matrix), recasting characters, and redubbing/rewriting several lines. Worst of all, several gorgeous, cel-animated sequences were replaced with shitty mid-2000s CGI renders. If you’re going to watch this movie (which you absolutely should if you somehow haven't already), stay as far away as possible from the 2.0 version. The original version has been released in bluray in just as good of a quality, and you’re only doing yourself a disservice by watching this disaster of a re-edit.

The first wapchan watch p/ar/ty suggestion thread! ranchant Board owner 01/14/2022 (Fri) 02:40:32 No. 159 [Reply] [Last]
To keep discussion on here fresh and to get a broader perspective on retro anime, I'll be hosting monthly watch p/ar/ties on cytube. I'm planning on this first one being held on the 29nd at 15:00 UTC, which hopefully works for most wapnons, and will run from 4-6 hours in total. This thread is for submitting suggestions for the stream. Less well known or obscure suggestions would be appreciated as I know there are a lot of works people want to discuss but few have actually seen. >Voting has finished, thanks everyone!
