Higurashi no Naku Koro ni anon 11/03/2022 (Thu) 19:29:49 No. 123 [Reply]
Recently got around to watching it, and was pleasantly surprised to find myself loving it. Mystery was great, which was complimented by countryside setting. It really knows how to create tension and ambient atmosphere as it manage d to make me feel uneasy. I heard it's a VN adaptation and there is also a manga, so definitely going to check it out sometime in the future. What are you thoughts? Shion is the best girl.

>>129 >awful artwork and animation >complete retread of the original but far worse in execution >butchered characterisation for the whole cast, but especially Rika and Satoko >Ryukishi marketing it as a remake when it was actually an unwanted sequel >tries to tie Higurashi into Umineko but cops out because he is a coward The better question would be what went right with it hint: the answer is nothing
Still didn't watch this, i lack the will to start it. Maybe i should watch it with a friend.
>>128 Disagree, everything past Kai might as well be filler. Don't waste your time, just read the VN.
>>130 People may dislike the original anime series for not being completely faithful to the VN and cutting out important events but it's a much better experience for newcomers compared to the garbofest that was SotsuGou. Imagine what it would be like they made a complete remake or actually decided to create a decent spinoff/continuation using the interesting concept they introduced and already good pre-existing characterization instead of the stunt they pulled
>>123 I havent rewatched it in years, but I remember the new at the time anime coming out and just being lost. Partly my fault for not reading the VN, but it got into so many different timelines I just got lost. I think the vague ending older series (if they are how i remember them) have some value at least as an entry. I've got the VNs lined up to read sometime its just having free time outside work to do so + my friend has been nagging me to read fate. Regardless the music and atmosphere was great from what I remember, might have to rewatch

Welcome to /digi/, the home for 2000s anime. The focus of this board is from 2000-2009, though works that started during that time period but ended up outlasting them are fine.

I recommend Tokyo Godfathers: a 2003 movie that speaks about a trio of homeless people on their quest to find the parents of a toddler they found on the streets. It may look like a complete comedy at first but it has its serious tones.
>>149 rod TV isnt perfect but its damn fun

Soremachi! But specifically the manga.
>>206 I watched the anime last year and loved it,I keep hearing good things about the manga so I probably should read it one day.
>>147 Recently finished The Twelve Kingdoms and thought it was pretty good it, even if I was somewhat burnt out by the end. It has a fuck ton of lore that it drops on you all the fucking time though, could barely keep up.

Does Hellsing Ultimate count? It was released from 2006 to 2012. Or can we only talk about the episodes which were released before 2010?
>>134 No issues talking about all of them. The rules are for shows well outside the era.

>>134 Maybe we should just talk about Hellsing 01. Just to be on the safe side.
You should alwas talk about Hellsing ultimate, THE ONLY GOOD HELLSING!

Rewatching Suggestions Thread anon 03/10/2023 (Fri) 05:26:02 No. 118 [Reply]
I'm trying to rewatch some anime I remember fondly to see if I can enjoy them the second time around. This time is Kyou no 5 no 2 or Today in Class 5-2 and I would like to post the experience in a few days. I would like to hear your experiences and suggestions on rewatching stuff too.

Even when I was a kid I had superb taste so if I rewatch something, I usually enjoy it as much. The other day I said I should rewatch something I DIDN'T enjoy all that much and set up FLCL again and actually enjoyed it a hella of a lot more than I did the first time I watched it.
>>118 The good parts were still there but the old cliché tropes were worse than what I remembered. I was surprised to hear anime used the same song "Secret Base (Kimi ga Kureta Mono)" from anohana. https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm14603545?from=8
>>119 That's nice. I also recently rewatched FLCL after not having seen it for the better part of a decade or so, and I would say I appreciate it even more now too (though I've always enjoyed it). I took the opportunity to watch it with the director's commentary track as well which I'd recommend. Lots of fun information to be gathered from it even if you consider yourself pretty familiar with the anime already.
>>119 something similar happened to me. i watched FLCL in 9th grade and i did enjoy it for it's insanity more than anything, then i rewatched it a couple of years later and i enjoyed the story,characters,look,music so much more. I've been meaning to rewatch monogatari this year but i haven't started yet

Have you read/seen it? I've been reading the manga for the past few days, it's pretty fun.
>>102 I have. To be fair, I love it for the art (as expected from Shaft), but not so much for everything else. While the humour in it is amusing at times, more often than not it can be difficult to understand for a non-Japanese, due to it's parodying of Japanese society. Moreover, it gets rather repetetive, especially that the anime spans three seasons. It's just not for me, although I can see why others may enjoy it.

So I finished watching this and it was… well, quite the experience. The main attractive to me was theorizing about plot elements and thinking about the themes of the anime (I still got a bit confused though). I think that what interested me the most was how it talked about the collective unconsciousness and how it affects one's perception of reality.
>>100 Congratulations. When are you transitioning? And when is the funeral?

Monster anon 10/23/2022 (Sun) 21:27:14 No. 76 [Reply]
I just finished watching it yesterday. It's somewhat slow, but the journey of the main characters was interesting to sit through and Johan is a magnificent villain. The ending was also kind of a surprise but satisfying
2 posts and 2 images omitted.
>>78 >As I said, it WAS slow, but the cast of characters kept me going. Yep, it's a slow burn but very worth it. I was surprised I was able to keep up with it despite not being a fan of longer shows, I'm guessing the dub helped in some regard. >I thought Johan's motivation was that of causing chaos wherever he went, but it all made sense once it was explained he was erasing his existence. Yeah, as I said in my other post I originally thought it was about another Hitler but I after that I thought that it was just that Johan was a force of chaos and Tenma noticed this and since he saved him he decided it was up to him to stop him, which Johan gladly accepted since if Tenma doesn't stop him he'd continue doing this. It wasn't until I read up on it that I actually understood the ending, my own stupidity at seeing the bigger picture I guess. >I was a little under that impression as well but with all the parallels of Johan being the Antichrist I expected someone wanting to use him to kill people indiscriminately For me, it was the scenes I saw, the neonazis and the whole German/East European feeling it had. If you're okay with watching some videos on Monster, I remember finding these in 2020 and was a fun distraction for a while to watch. If not, that's cool thought I'd share regardless: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_QCc_w1iGU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdJ0XVurmZc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5L6bHNYyh6I
>>76 Watched it a couple of years ago and it's one of my favorites. It does feel slow but it all pays off. Lunge is a masterful character, there was always something alluring about him, this computer of a man that dedicates himself completely to his cause. The ost is incredible, the op and the eds add to the theme of the story and set the mood for each episode. Its been a while since ive watched it and i hope i will get to rewatch it soon. >>77 I didn't know the novel existed, have you read it? would you say it's worth reading ?
>>80 Sorry anon, I haven't read the novel. I just know of it from an article I read that pretty much broke the whole thing down so I know what happened.

You DO know how to play Mahjong, right /a2k/?

>>61 I got into mahjong because I got a set of tiles for my birthday. I didn't know how to play but me and one friend learned how to play and then taught some of my other friends. We play riichi mahjong irl every other week and it's the highlight of my week.

>>74 Very nice, anon. I miss playing Mahjong with the bros every weekend. I really want to again when I eventually sort my life out and move in with a friend so we become the center meeting point of our friend group. Back in uni I used to play every weekend and it was great, Saturday's were tons of fun where we'd all get together, put on some vidya music for background noise, play some Jong, eat some food halfway through and watch some random show I had on my computer. Used to last from around 6pm till 11pm and I miss it dearly. Keep up the weekly Mahjong, you'll miss it if it's gone.
