Let's face it. /lum/ is comfy, but slow. We need to spread the word about /lum/ so this board can truly be a worthy successor to old /a/ UY threads. I think we should get some real nice OC and spread the word both on the nu lum threads on /a/ as well as r/uruseiyataura, and maybe even other places. Any of you have ideas?

>>1617 I'm gonna be honest. I think we should really think on how we should spread this board. Spreading it /a/ gets you banned for 3 days plus /lum/ is full of schizos, so it should be ruled out in my opinion. As for reddit, honestly it's not worth it either. R/uruseiyatsura usually produces low quality content (plus they just repost the same shit over and over again) and having redditors here would ruin the comfiness of this place (just like with /a/). I advice you to spread it to old anime forums and such. They would probably attract more interesting people to discuss the anime.
>>1618 >I advice you to spread it to old anime forums and such. They would probably attract more interesting people to discuss the anime. Agreed. Will gain a few interesting people without increasing traffic to spam levels as well. People tend to forget half of the reason why smaller IBs are "comfy" is due to the fact they aren't extremely fast. As long as there's a steady flow of posters without the website being "dead", that's fine on my end.

Old Japanese Web Pages anon 01/16/2022 (Sun) 18:58:24 No. 882 [Reply]
It's time to play the retro otaku famous sport, finding old Japanese web pages! Now these days, various search engines have been filtering these pages, making them harder to find, but if you know a thing or two about old anime/doujin circles, this shouldn't be a challenge for /ar/. Do pixelly oekaki scribbles make you blush? Does finding dithered old .MAG anime CGs make you cum? Then take note of these examples to find these types of images on your local search engine >"index of" ~[insert generic japanese nickname here] >"index of" ~[insert old PC model here] >CG [insert 90s anime or 90s anime character name], "ne.jp", 1998.03.05 (this date is just an example, any date between the early 90s-early 00s will give you results) Voila! You've done it. Now contribute to the thread with your various findings. Happy hunting, /ar/.

Ryuunosuke Appreciation Thread lumfren 12/19/2022 (Mon) 16:16:44 No. 1620 [Reply]
Thread dedicated to the one and only Ryuu-chan.

>>1620 that's a man
>>1634 But Benten is also horrible at being feminine, rememberthe chapter where her and Ryuunosuke have a competition to see who is more feminine?
>>1636 There is a world of difference between Benten and Ryuunosuke. Benten is just a wild tomboy, Ryuunosuke is functionally retarded at acting female. It's easier to milk comedy out of her predicament.
>>1637 She could be less retarded, if her dad wasn't such a psycho. I hope she made it eventually
So, what do we think of nu-Ryuunosuke?

Leiji Matsumoto thread anon 12/09/2022 (Fri) 20:00:19 No. 875 [Reply]
No Matsumoto thread? Sad. Discuss his anime here: Captain Harlock, Galaxy Express 999 (what I've been watching recently), hell, even that Interstellar 5555, the Daft Punk concept film he did. I'm a fan of his stuff, great storyteller and a great artist to boot. His designs are extremely nice (my favorite of which was Emeraldas's design), pic related.

>>875 Captain Harlock became one of my favorite anime characters after I finished the 1978 TV Show and I really liked Arcadia of my Youth. Right now I think I have around 30 episodes left until I'm done with GE999 and it's been amazing,I can't wait to see how it ends and to rewatch the movie.

>>877 The episode/arc where Harlock shows up is the best part imo. It's got new OST, punished Maetel, Harlock badassery, and an Arcadia cameo.
>>878 That’s some heavy maetel for an episode
>>879 -_-

I always want to watch his stuff but get filtered whenever these abominations appear. It's not like he can't draw normal characters either.

Best Patlabor Episodes anon 01/08/2022 (Sat) 07:04:15 No. 853 [Reply]
What's everyone's favorite episode of Patlabor? For me it's a tossup between one of the goofier episodes like the ones where they go into the gator labyrinth and SV2's Longest Day from the original OVA.

>What's everyone's favorite episode of Patlabor? The episode where Shinobu and Gotou stayed in a hotel and the one where they parody Ultraman.

>>853 I quite liked the one where the team have to go to retraining and Goto decides to fuck with them by staging a fake ghost haunting.
I tried watching the TV series, but I just couldn't stay with it. There first few episodes were all just a bunch of "funny" things happening, with no real overarching story arch. Is the whole thing just one lame comedy gag after another or is there a point where things start to get interesting?
>>873 An overarching plot does develop, but if you don't like the comedy I wouldn't bother. Patlabor (TV) is a comedy first and foremost.

Education resource thread anon 01/30/2022 (Sun) 01:12:38 No. 806 [Reply]
This is a thread to provide resources for anons to educate themselves on the history, production process, and common critical language of anime and manga (I am less educated on manga personally, so my recommendations will be anime focused). Here is a useful article that is a great overview on anime as an artform, how it got to be the way it is, and what distinguishes it from cartoons: https://www.tofugu.com/japan/anime-vs-cartoons/ The Dragonball fandom has an excellent series of articles about the production process of your average television anime (both the retro and digital workflows are explained), as well as a map of all of the staff and what they do: https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/process/ https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/positions-and-roles/ Here is another article that helps establish a baseline knowledge for talking about animation quality, or more specifically some pitfalls to avoid when discussing it: https://www.kanzenshuu.com/animation-production/quality/ For those who want a much more in depth and technical book on an academic study of anime as an artform, there are several books I could recommend, but by far I find this the most useful: https://film7000.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/thomaslamarre-2009-theanimemachine.pdf Finally if you'd like some insight into the history of the American anime community, this is a great book: https://u1lib.org/book/5612293/e70b96 Feel free to share your own resources if you have any, the more educated the community, the more we can appreciate what we love!

>>806 New interview with legendary animator Shinya Ohira. https://fullfrontal.moe/nterview-shinya-ohira/ Ohira discusses Yoshinori Kanada, Masahito Yamashita, the new Urusei Yatsura series, and more! "It’s well-known that you became an animator after discovering Masahito Yamashita’s[6] work on Urusei Yatsura[7]. What would you say is the appeal of Yamashita’s animation? Shin’ya Ohira: Let’s see… (thinks) First, there’s the mood and dynamic action he inherited from Yoshinori Kanada[8]. But Yamashita has things that Kanada doesn’t, like physicality and details… It’s hard to express. Yamashita’s animation is both sharp and sensual. I really like that sort of fleshy mood, and I also love curved and irregular lines… Kanada used rulers, so it’s very sharp and straight, whereas Yamashita’s drawings are just curves, and he puts them together to create something very dense with details… (thinks) I think that’s what I like about him. That’s why I like Yamashita’s touch more than Kanada’s. Since we’re on Urusei Yatsura, what movie is your favorite, Only You[9] or Beautiful Dreamer[10]? Shin’ya Ohira: Only You, of course! (everybody laughs) There’s a new Urusei Yatsura TV show coming out soon. Will you watch it?

Have you seen Golden Boy?

>>799 No, because I heard the manga ruins the character of Kintaro, and I don't want that.
>>801 I read it to the end and it really goes off the rails. Here's a basic summary of what I remember -A long arc where Kintaro poses as a schoolgirl -An arc where Kintaro's old college classmate is running a VR sex cult -Kintaro gets hypnotized by the sex cult -A flashback arc where you think you'll learn about Kintaro's past and why he travels and studies, but it's just lots of philosophizing and lots of sex -Actually most of the later manga can be described as "lots of philosophizing and lots of sex" -The art gets really weird and "stretchy" looking -The manga ends abruptly in the middle of a sex scene--which featured lots of philosophizing This might sound hard to believe but I actually like the manga and how crazy it gets.It's like the author dropped acid and decided to start experimenting
I'm currenly rewatching it. From the best retro anime, especially for an ecchi comedy. It sucks that they didn't made more episodes.
One of my favorite anime. Love the character designs, love the flexibility in the animation. Great characters. Arguably the best dub of its time (sub is great too!). Just a banger of an ecchi comedy.
>>800 Man, the manga certainly goes places. I wasn't expecting the hard turn into NTR drama for example or the rape scenes. This is one case where the anime absolutely beats the pants off the manga.
