What are you watching /kind/?
>>40 I've been watching The X-Files. I remember it from when I was a kid and remember my mom commenting that it was scary and I wasn't allowed to watch it, although I wasn't interested in it at the time. The last episode I watched I wasn't impressed with at all.

>>40 Holoshit, yuck
I just finished Mobile Sut Gundam '79 the other day. I enjoyed it a ton. I think I'll start watching Chobits soon.

I am watching Magia Record. It's pretty different to the original Madoka but it's pretty fun so far!
Anime wise, City Hunter. It's been fun. There are obviously better episodes than others with its episodic nature. My favourites are usually the dumb ones involving children or aspects where Ryo isn't really protecting someone but and we see their perspective until Ryo saves the day in the end. I wish Kaori was used a bit more, that one episode where she had to defend Ryo with his revolver and botching the shots due to the kickback and STILL taking out bad guys was fantastic and wish she did shit like that more than just being "le big hammer" girl I wish the best theme in the show would make a return though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uN7q-Ytc1B4. I loved hearing this during a scene where Ryo had to turn the tables or do something impossible and he pulled through. I'm also going through all the Ghibli movies before I head to Japan in a week, gonna see the Ghibli museum and want to be up to date. Saw Wind Rises today and liked it. Only 4 left. TV wise. I'm watching The Sopranos for no real reason. I just remember I downloaded it and decided to give it a shot a month ago to see if it was as good as people say. I like it, but surprised it's more about family drama than action. I always thought it was similar to Breaking Bad in regards to danger and suspense but really there's never any of that and it almost feels like a sitcom at times with everyone having their own A and B plots. On Season 6 now, I know how it ends so it's sad to think about Tony and his family in a lot of scenarios.
Watched an anime film called "Josee to Tora to Sakana-tachi" yesterday. Probably going to watch it again later tonight or tomorrow. It's a bit cliché in the worst possible way at times, but otherwise I thought it was very cute and mostly well-made outside of some ugly CGI, which I guess is unavoidable in modern anime. The love interest is perfect: bookworm, waifish, osaka-ben, fluffy hair, etc.
I recently watched the first episodes of Am I Actually The Strongest? and Saint Cecilia & Pastor Lawrence. https://myanimelist.net/anime/52969/Jitsu_wa_Ore_Saikyou_deshita https://myanimelist.net/anime/52082/Shiro_Seijo_to_Kuro_Bokushi Strongest? is pretty comfy so far and Flay is really hot and funny so I'll probably be watching it for her. Cecilia & Lawrence is a really comfy and cute slice of life romcom. It would probably be easy to joke about it being based and trad or something. I would recommend it to anyone that wants to see a cute loli romcom or is generally sick of lewd nuns like me. I'll probably wait until every episode is released to continue because I want to watch an episode per day without having to wait and I don't like having a torrent file for each individual episode.
>>40 I like cardcaptor sakura BUT I'm really looking forward to the upcoming adaptation for witch hat atelier. I'm a big fan of the manga
>>40 Anime? Quite a few things: >Arc the Lad >Battle Programmer Shirase >Birdy the Mighty: Decode >Gundam '79 >rewatching Gundam 0080 >No Guns Life >Rose of Varsailles >Scrapped Princess The last regular TV show I watched was some reruns of Star Trek: Enterprise

>>42 Nice to see someone watching the true Bocchi show. >>98 I had no idea there was an adaptation in the works. Maybe I really will read the manga now.

Recently lots and lots of youtube videos about creepy ARGs, analog horror and spooky games. I started watching SAO with my friend as a guilty pleasure/so bad its good watching and we have been having fun laughing together at silly writing. At the same time, I realize that this anime isn't as bad as I remember and I've been maybe a bit too harsh on it in the past. I really like the form of ARG and analog horror, I find it incredibly comfy despite the dark subject matter. I often watch the series itself then I will watch a video explaining it to check if I missed any details or secrets I wouldn't be able to find otherwise (Like alternate accounts of creators where they post pictures and other stuff). I really like White Stag Education, because my favourite Analog Horror series is Gemini Home Entertainment, and White Stag feels REALLY inspired by GHE. The style is incredibly similar, and although it uses a lot of generic tropes that started with GHE, I think it uses it very well and in some ways even more subtly than GHE did. GHE uses a lot of "Video that starts as normal but quickly turns into creepy at third or fourth position", but while GHE was a bit more on the nose with it, White Stag still uses that trope but a bit more subtly? In GHE the footage would distort and become weird to the point where it is obvious that the work tries to creep you out. But in White Stag, this also does happen, but in a way that feels more realistic to something produced in the world of the series. There is a moment where the first video gives us an acronym SAFE, which is supposed to keep us safe while hiking. S stands for "Stay on the trails" and introduces the idea of "false trails", there is a moment where music cuts out while the video warns us that we will not return if we go on a false trail. The "YOU WILL NOT RETURN" is shown without music and in red writing. But afterwards, the video goes back to normal. This felt to me less as if the video was trying to shock me in some way, but as if the in-universe creators of the video were trying their best to make sure that we get the point. It didn't feel like some outside force was trying to make the video overly spooky, rather as if it was super important and they meant to give us a strong warning. Later on F turns to "Fear the forest" but it's also treated in a way as a safety tip rather something that was intentionaly made to be creepy. I really like that about the series and think more analog horror series should do that. It really helps the immersion whenever they don't put their focus on shock value (even though the later videos still do it to some extent, but that's fine, it's a good trope) but on making the videos terrifying simply due to them feeling realistic in the world, and the implications of them being scary in themselves. We don't need constant random jumpscares of spooky faces appearing whenever something creepy is supposed to happen like in FNAF VHS or the videos suddenly getting creepy and distorted. (White Stag did the jumpscare thing only once now) The implications can be scary on their own. Still I love this medium and I want to see more interesting analog horror. If White Stag goes on to do more cool stuff it might become my favourite in stead of Gemini, or at least get close.
>>100 There is, but there is no official release date yett! You can find it on MAL :)

I watched Gunsmith Cats, it was very fun!
>>256 Watch Riding Bean too, it's also pretty good!
>>256 Great anime that I need to rewatch. Crazy that they got Peter Erskine to do the music for it.

Currently watching Fionna and Cake, and I like it more than I thought. I don't think the end seasons of Adventure Time were that great, so it's surprising how much I'm looking forward to new episodes from this. Usually I'm not a fan of milking franchises to keep the machine going, but I'm positively surprised! Fionna and Cake is a good example for me that having a larger budget and more resources can help push something existing to greater heights, instead of just dragging the original out, and I get the feeling that the people who create the show care about it.

>>263 I just watched it, it was indeed pretty good! Thanks for the recommendation.
>>303 Glad you liked it. If you've got 11 minutes to spare, give Bean Bandit a watch too. It's a kickstarted anime that isn't that good but it's okay for what it is.
Not an anime, but I recently started reading Subahibi. I haven't read that much yet and I don't know whatever it is I am in for, but the vibe I feel from it agrees with me.
>>299 I've been thinking about watching that. I rarely watch cartoons, but I have been watching My Adventures with Superman.

>>304 I just watched it, it felt like a trailer or something, it was a bit strange. Why did they used that Rally, I liked the brown Rally much better. I also watched Scramble Wars: Tsuppashiru! Genom Trophy Rally. I don't know any of the characters other than the Riding Bean cameos, but it was hilarious. The art is cute too. I don't understand why it has such a low score on MAL, I really enjoyed it. It is also a goldmine for reaction pictures, I might watch it again just to take proper screenshots.

>>315 Brown can be very cute. Sexy too! I never liked black though.
>>315 >Why did they used that Rally, I liked the brown Rally much better. That's the original Rally. She was changed in GSC for some reason I forget. Never heard of Scramble Wars, might give it a watch.
>>308 If you liked Adventure Time or the kind of humour in general I think you'll like it, it doesn't have too many episodes either yet.

>>40 I started watching Gosick because Victorique reminded me of another character. I'm loving it so far ヽ(・∀・)ノ.
>>471 Finished it 2 days ago, made me cry.
I was watching Serial Experiments Lain but after one episode put me in a really weird mood I had to take a break and I keep forgetting to pick it back up. It's really interesting, although rough around the edges
I watched Girls Last Tour, it was a bit depressing...
>>562 I just finished watching that a few days ago and it wasn't depressing until I heard how the manga ends so I'll just pretend the manga isn't canon
>>471 What's another anime like Gosick? I like the pre-WW1 setting.

"Night is Short, Walk on Girl" it's peak cinema, but make sure to watch "Tatami Galaxy" first to further enhance the experience

Ninja Scroll (1993) It was pretty good!
>>680 I need to watch this again. The one time I saw it, I was only half paying attention. I ended up ruining my own experience and remember next to nothing about the movie.

>>40 Oh man, been a while since I posted on wapchan but I might as well add something here, haha. Been watching Hunter X Hunter 2011 but incredibly slowly (1 episode a day) hoping to finish it and see if I like it more than I did 1999 after the Hunter Exam. I never liked Nen and even made a thread about my HxH 1999 opinions on this site but it might've just been explained poorly in that version and this time they'll speed through it and it'll be better. I also hear the Chimera Arc is incredible so can't wait to watch that and probably be disappointed by it. Not sure what I'll watch after that though, maybe finish Under Ninja and start up Dungeon Meshi and Frieren since I've been wanting to experience the former since I first heard about it and anon's on /a/ told me it'll get an anime "real soon" (2015) and everyone won't shut up about Frieren so I might as well watch that too and see if it's good or "feelings slop" as a few people I know call it.
295.17 KB 1920x1080 kakegurui xx.jpg
>>40 the second season of kakegurui -- kakegurui xx! basically, it's a gambling anime mixed with supernatural and horror. it's been fun, everyone in this anime is a mess! >>752 this reminds me. since you mentioned /a/, why not 'otaku no video'? i hear it's a classic, and unlike most anime, it's also an educational documentary that goes deep into the lives of hikikomori in japan.
>>40 I just started watching Spice and Wolf. I remember watching the first episode several years ago and I didn't really like it back then so I dropped it. Now I'm actually enjoying it. I guess my taste has changed a little bit.

The Patlabor movies after watching the OVAs, I like the idea of a Japanese police force with mechas. The movies were more serious than the OVA and I didn't understand everything, however I found them they were very pretty and relaxing.
>>832 I haven't thought about Kinmoza for a LONG time. >>935 I've been meaning to start patlabor for a while now. I really enjoyed the bit I watched, it being quite different from the usual mecha, and also I found it physical for cheap, so it'd really be a waste not to watch.
