    Older anime being updated to 16:9?

    So, I decided to rewatch Wagnaria, I haven't seen it since back when it came out, I noticed on my rewatch that it's 16:9 now, I'm pretty sure it was 4:3 when I watched it originally, and also another older anime, chobits is 16:9 now.

    Did I just watch a squished copy before or are some anime being remastered?

    Looking for anime recommendations with little/no fighting

    Hi everyone,

    Just like the title says, looking for some recommendations.

    Fiance is getting into anime but does not like anime with a lot of fighting.

    For example, she's not loving demon slayer

    Things like MHA and Chainsaw Man are out of the question

    Ones she liked: Tokyo ghoul (didn't like root A) Death Note Promised Neverland (didn't tell her about season 2 for obvious reasons)

    Any recommendations are welcome! I was thinking about Angel Beats NGNL Another FMAB Maybe SAO

    Chainsaw Man Was Truly A 12 Part Cinematic Masterpiece. Would truly love to hear your thoughts.

    [Spoilers] Anime where the bad guys/villains win in the end?

    I find it pretty rare to find an anime series where the bad guy or villain wins in the end. The only one I can think of is [anime name ahead]>!Chrono Crusade!<.

    Note: I don't necessarily mean the antagonist winning, usually it is the antagonist, but I mean generally any "bad" or evil group/character(s) winning in the end, or achieving their goals.

    What series come to mind for you guys? Let me know!

    Today's Illustrations: Season 3 Cast


    Question of the Day:

    Mirror's back! How sweet was this episode?


    Comments of the Day:

    /u/The_Loli_Otaku had the reaction we all expected:

    It's too cruel to reintroduce her purely to drop her... She's taking this with such dignity. Screw you V1. I hope you start balding in your early 20's!! Dude... I hate this. China deserves way better from this show. She shouldn't have been dropped in the first pace. She's a main character! She's my undebated best girl!! Always!! China V2, banzai!! Banzai!! Banzai!!

    /u/JetsLag proves Meiling is just as competent as Tomoyo:

    Time for Syaoran to break the news. She takes it...well, could be worse? She bawls her eyes out in front of Tomoyo, but keeps her composure in front of Syaoran the next day. She, too, tells Syaoran to JUST CONFESS ALREADY MY DUDE. She tells Sakura in a letter to GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL THAT SOMEONE IS IN LOVE WITH YOU, and writes some Chinese characters at the bottom which translates to...the subs don't say. Probably something like "Take care of Syaoran".


    On an important note, no unmarked spoilers! No jokes about events yet to come, and no references to future episodes!

    Clow Card Fortune Book

    Today's subject: Compatibility Reading

    1. Shuffle and cut the Clow Cards while imagining the name of the person you want to do the reading for. (If you are doing a reading for you and Mr. Cake, think of Mr. Cake. If you’re doing a reading for another couple, think of the two of them.)

    2. Gather the cards up so they are lying pattern-side up. Spread the cards out surface-side up in a 1 card-length line, going from left to right.

    3. Now, the card-surface designs are classified into 4 different groups (the suits). When 2 cards of the same group are side-by-side, remove them. Repeat this procedure until there are no more cards to take away.

    4. The fewer the cards that are left remaining, the better the compatibility! The compatibility is based on the number of cards that are left remaining:

    • 0-10 cards = considerably good compatibility

    • 11-20 cards = slightly good compatibility

    • 21-30 cards = normal compatibility

    • 31-40 cards = compatibility is slightly bad

    • 41-50 cards = compatibility is considerably bad

    In the case of no remaining cards... Best compatibility!

    In the case of remaining cards... The card mostly to the left in the line of cards will show the cause of deteriorating compatibility. The card mostly to the right in the line of cards will show a method for a good relationship.

    Without spoilers, can someone confirm episode 19 on Hulu of future diary is correct? The Hulu title is different than the title card.

    Episode 19 of future diary is titled "memory wipe" on Hulu, but the title card in the actual episode said "delete all messages".

    Does Subaru stop being cringe and unnecessarily emotional from episode 18 and onwards?

    I've long heard that episode 18 was where it got good, but man, I just can't bring myself to watch the previous episodes. But I am willing to watch it if it actually gets good. Does Subaru stop being cringe and unnecessarily emotional from episode 18 and onwards? Or is that just another episode like EP 8 where a girl tries to kill him in a contrived fashion and he just cries in a very contrived fashion?

    /u/RadSuit is the king of making beach trips worth it!

    From my one and only trip to a beach, looking for dead jellyfish because it rained the entire time and nobody could swim.


    • Boomshakalaka, Miu is now your daughter. How do you correct her behaviour?
    • What's your favourite festival snack?
    • Pirates or Ninjas? Elaborate why.
    • How tolerant of a person are you? Do you think you could have handled today's events without praying for a bottomless pit to open beneath you?

    • Sara scores her first win!! Sasuga!

    It’s set up for the scene with Nobue at the beach. When Chika has a stuffed chest, it looks awkward and out of place, but later when her sister’s natural chest is revealed to the world, she gets admiration from onlookers despite the criticisms she gets from Miu. So, the lesson here is that you should embrace your body and love it for what it is or lock your window’s from creepy neighbors!

    Love Live! Superstar!! Season 1 was pretty good

    I recently finished Love Live Superstar Season 1 after finishing both SIP and Sunshine (haven't seen Nijigasaki yet, and so far it's my second favorite season just behind SIP season 2. I can’t determine exactly why, could be not following SIP too closely, less annoying drama, or the more laid-back setting, but Superstar feels like a breath of fresh air in the series, or at least I don’t feel idol burnout despite just finishing Sunshine. I think Superstar finds a good balance for the relaxed and serious moments. It never feels episodic or filler, but still having a goal they actively work towards every episode.

    Reinforcing my thought on Superstar being more laid-back, saving the school is never treated as a priority. I think the writers didn’t want to save the school a third time, but were forced to keep tradition. It’s barely mentioned during [Spoiler] >!ep 9-11, and resolved so quickly in ep 12, when their ep 10 performance attracted enough applicants, and Ren gets a small loan of a million dollars from her dad to keep the school open!<

    It’s kind of a good thing saving the school isn’t a priority, because their desire to perform feels more personal to each character (Sunshine did had that thing of wanting to shine). In Superstar, it feels like everyone has some personal trauma that they hope to overcome, [Spoiler] >!Kanon singing on a stage, Ren for her mother, Sumire to be a star, Chisato to stand by Kanon’s side as a dependable person (I think), and Keke living her dream!<

    There are still silly drama moments, like the [Spoiler] >!school civil war, Ren's mom, and when Chisato convinces everyone to bail on Kanon!< , but for the most part I felt drama was handled nicely.

    It is a weird choice for season 1 to span the course of 1 full year instead of 2 seasons for 1 year, but I imagine it's so they can add new members each year.

    Before they added new members to Liella in season 2, one of the show's selling points was the smaller cast, and each character could be more fleshed out. I like everyone in Liella, but I don't agree everyone is more fleshed out. Kanon, Chisato, and Sumire are fleshed out, but I can’t say the same about Keke and Ren. They were done with Ren after [Spoiler] >!ep 8, deciding a tragic backstory was enough character development, and make her a socially awkward dork!< . Keke’s case is weird because despite being a member since episode 1, I know the least about her, other than she moved to Japan because she really loves school idols, her life was dull in China, and she [Spoiler] >!might need to return if she doesn’t have any results!< There's also the argument whether Kanon is too much of a superstar compared to the rest of Liella, but I should probably watch season 2 before coming to that conclusion.

    I like most of the songs and visuals. In a perfect world, it would be purely 2D, but the CGI looks pretty good, granted I'm comparing animation from 2021 and 2013. Of the songs performed in the anime, my favorites are Mirai Yohou Hallelujah! and Starlight Prologue, while my favorite Liella song is Crescendo Yu・Ra.

    I would recommend giving Superstar a watch. Unlike some other series, you can more or less watch in any order, the exception being Sunshine.

    Correct Fan-Theory or Spoiler?

    Can a fan-theory/prediction about anime that is correct considered spoiler if told to someone who didn't think about it? Why?

    IMO I can't tell, there are also some people who'll spoil something under the name of their fake "fan-theory" (shout out to Steins;Gate fans.

    On the other hand, if there's on-going anime, especially original with no source at all, everything original. Its currently airing and someone makes a theory that makes sense and connects two things together that many people are questioning at the time. When the particular ep is released where that fan-theory is proven to be right, many people who read that theory won't enjoy it the same because of the prediction the fan-theory had, same way how a spoiler ruins the show.

    So to all the "spoiler ruins the show" people including me, what are your opinions on whether do fan-theory/predictions ruin the show or not, and would you consider it some sort of spoiler or not and why.

    I'm tired of the Isekai Fantasy World Template.

    Part of what got me into anime was its ability to portray these rich, fictional worlds and stories to get lost in (whether accurate or not), and I've been thinking more and more about that in the wake of last season's Trigun Stampede and (to a lesser extent) Kaina of the Great Snow Sea. It's really gotten me thinking about the state of the Fantasy genre at large in the current ecosystem.

    Cause maybe it's just me, but I feel that for the sheer volume of fantasy shows coming out, the overall quality of fantasy settings have been dropping. The prevalence of the "isekai template" has become prominent even among non-isekai stories, which certainly allows the writer to get into "the meat and potatoes" quicker, but I feel misses the whole point of having a fantasy world. When I'm watching a fantasy I want to get immersed in its setting and be swept away by the details. Repeating the same setting over and over gets tiring after a while (to speak nothing on the rest of the writing).

    To flesh things out a little more, I don't think we're exactly starved for options. Last year gave us both Sabikui Bisco and The Girl From the Other Side (not to mention more Made in Abyss). 2021 gave us Mushoku Tensei (the rare isekai that puts in the work), Ranking of Kings, and To Your Eternity, and night world and 2020 gave us glimpses of it with A Whisker Away and Pokemon: Twilight Wings, but that's about it. I admit I'm ignoring partial magic worlds like that in Dragon Maid, Vanitas, or Wonder Egg, but even with those thrown in that's still less works in the last three years than isekai or isekai-adjacent shows last season. Considering that Demon Slayer won Best Fantasy at the CRAs earlier this month [insert obligatory "the CRAs are a joke" line here] it seems like people's appetite for immersive fantasy worlds is dwindling and its resulting in less of these available on the market.

    None of this is to attack people who watch Isekai, since I know the appeal is obviously different. I'm just curious if anyone feels the same as me? If not, I'm always down for some recs to scratch my itch (I know I didn't mention The Fire Hunter. It's on my planning list). Also, if you are a fan of these isekai worlds and have read this far, I'd love to know what the appeal is for you?

    How well people know different anime

    Since the last one (5 years ago) went really well, I decided to do part 2 of little survey/quiz asking people to name anime showed on the screen and then prepare a raport listing how well were different shows known.

    This time I added little bit of optional demographic data, to maybe look for some trends.

    It's also shorter, but possibly more difficult as anime used seem to be little more random.

    Changing perspectives when viewing a show you previously disliked

    TLDR: I'm curious are there any anime/manga where ya'll had a similar experience? Or enjoyed a anime/manga a lot more after approaching it a different way or with a different mindset?

    There's very few anime I've started and not finished out of the hundreds I've probably completed, mostly due to the fact I just cannot stand that specific anime. One of those being Girlfriend, Girlfriend, I genuinely could not get through 15 minutes of the first episode when it came out and never touched it again.

    However I recently finished Aho-girl and absolutely fell in love with it's idiocy and baindead humor. Could not stop laughing and grinning so decided to look for other works by the author(Hiryouki) found out lastnight they also did Girlfriend, Girlfriend. So I decided to actually sit down and watch a few episodes with a different perspective and although the anime is still trash, it's pretty fucking funny in it's own way and will definitely be watching it to completion along with the season 2 when it comes out.
