As someone people would call a "moefag", I don't mind the fujoshis. They keep to their threads just like us. If you're seriously so offended by people making threads about liking cute fictional boys/girls, just hide them. Also, they actually made the MgRonalds threads pretty fun, when people argued wether Chiho or Alsiel was Maou's waifu (and neither gave a fuck about Emi).

Well, now. I tried to quell the shitstorm before it started. Why you gotta make such an ill-informed blanket statement concerning something entirely subjective?
>> No. 83776
It really depends on the fandom. Some threads they're OK for (especially the more moe-heavy ones), in others they can get pretty dumb like Jojo or even downright vicious with Tiger & Bunny. It's sad in the case of Jojo because we almost never ever had shipwars before the anime started, but now and then I'd see people bashing Reimi because she got in the way of Josuke/Rohan or arguments over whether Jonathan/Pucci/Vanilla was Dio's best partner. I like the occasional man/man action but I thought our threads were supposed to be better than that.

Wasn't a random pick. I think it was one of you who actually suggested it when I said Gargantia was kind of a letdown because of how rushed it was. PS: this was way more of a letdown.

Has anyone else watched Shinsekai Yori, though? Why did this story go from horrifying sci-fi feudal dystopia to ridiculous political allegory for class warfare? How much changed from the novel to the adaptation?

I think this is the most disappointed I've ever been with an anime show. They start off doing The Village if The Village was done right. Everything's very mysterious as the kids discover piece by piece that the world they live in is a total farce. Then it just suddenly becomes a spy thriller set in a monster movie. Magic being grounded in science gets dropped. The interactions between the main characters gets dropped. The questions about how and what the world actually is get dropped. The entire Maria story gets fucking dropped. Even as a political statement, nothing about the society changed. The leadership was almost entirely dismantled, but not a damn thing changed. Then it just ends with "well, I hope things get better!" What.

Any recommendations for something like the first half of this series that doesn't go full retard towards the end?

So yeah, Railgun S. They're actually sticking to the source material this time. Painfully so. As in utterly soul crushing. Man, I need a bit of a grief time after the last episode. They did one cutesy and vapid SoL filler episode, though. Complete with anime-original character do not steal. And it felt completely out of place within the fucking heavy context. Apparently they also hurt the feelings of anime-only fans, because those expected more of that vapid shit, coming from the first season.

People've been bugging me to watch "Free!", but something in my head keeps thinking "If they're a bishounen, they're under 18, and you're not watching a fanservicey show with young guys on it who are nearly naked, that makes you a creepy pedophile".

I think this is why I veer towards bara. Nobody's going to mistake an overweight, muscular man with a huge beard for being 12.
>> No. 83810

There's still a lot of disconnect for me so far. All the Sisters know what's waiting for them when they initiate an experiment. They have those collective memories. Wouldn't their behavior be different than what we're seeing? Wouldn't their tactics change, at least? They say that explicitly in this latest episode, but I'm not seeing anything in the show itself. They still just goggle up, run and gun, and die.

The flashback to the first experiment was interesting. I thought we might learn about Accelerator's past and how he's come to be such an insufferable assface. Nope. He was always an assface. And he always enjoyed torturing innocent people to death.
>> No. 83811
They actually do change tactics. It should become more apparent in the next fight. The alley fight was kinda weird to me, too. At that point they shouldn't be mindlessly shooting at him anymore. I blame the script writer of the episode.
Also, Accelerator is torturing them to this extent, because he wants to get an emotional response out of them. He's looking for a reason to stop. Yes, I know that sounds like terrible writing. That's because it is.

I think the biggest factor as to whether the fujoshi help or hurt the threads is the style of the series itself. They're usually good when the show isn't the type of stuff that immediately caters to them, like shows with a lot of girls (Geass, Maou, Haruhi) or that don't have a lot of bishounen designs. If you're a fujoshi and watching that kind of stuff you're probably more open-minded and less shallow than the usual to be funny instead of annoying.

Shows like Psycho-Pass, Durarara!, T&B, K, Kuroko, Free!, and possibly Samurai Flamenco tend to have annoying fujoshi because prettyboy designs amass a big Tumblr fanbase early on, and it spills into the threads on /a/, complete with the usual Fan Dumb suspects shitposting all over the place. It's a real lose-lose situation since Tumblr culture promotes so much intolerance that those of us who are OK with the stuff but want to be more like the former kind of fujoshi get accused of being homophobes/trolls/haters/misogynists/butthurt fans of another ship just for telling them to not use emoticons or act like spoiled 12 year olds. And then the actual haters on the other side think we're part of the Tumblr cancer.

I don't really know about Jojo, but the threads I have been in weren't so bad. I always figured it was too bara for fujoshi, but I guess the later parts are right up their alley.

Just checked out the manga again, 4 chapters translated now. It's not great!

So-so character drama and "military tactics" consisting of charging forwards in the open while gunning enemies down. Not much else of substance. It looks nice but doesn't have brains.

Probably suffers from Josei Mediocre Art Syndrome. I don't know what it is either but a lot of Josei that I otherwise like for the writing have this kind of minimalist art style that makes them unpleasing to look at, even if the plot and characters are good. Love My Life and Nodame Cantabile also have this problem pretty bad. Some other Josei like Paradise Kiss and Chihayafuru I think also have this issue but water it down with enough shoujo style elaboration that it's not as problematic.

On another note, this manga is really nothing but an excuse for constant cookbook recipes and yet I can't stop reading it. There's just something so... wholesome.

Just finished Black Lagoon: Shaitan Badi.

So for the record, I think the best arcs in the actual series are Twins and Japan while my personal favorite is the Greenback Jane arc.

This book? Blows all of it out of the water. It's also now my 2nd favorite Urobuchi work aside of Fate Zero.
I'd heard it was all about Balalaika's backstory but was surprised that it was set in the regular time period and mostly in Roanapur. That said I still totally loved it: Chang being a total boss, Balalaika being a complete psycho in a way that's only topped by the aforementioned Twins and Japan arcs, those awesomely depressing Stan segments, the utter insanity that is Shadow Falcon... so good.

The only complaints I can think of off the top of my head are that Jake wasn't great (although holy shit, I had no idea that picture of Revy domming a fat guy was from an official product), and the pirate sisters are totally wasted. I suppose in terms of wackiness, the latter is made up for by the absolutely fantastic way Chang deals with Falcon.

I like to think that Black Lagoon shares a universe with Metal Gear, and anyone not TOTALLY FUCKING INSANE enough for Special Forces work just drums out and joins the mob.

>finally got around to finishing up watching Roberta's Blood Trail OVA

I try not to bitch overmuch about when anime adaptions deviate from the original manga but fuck the whole Roberta getting an arm blown off horseshit. The manga handled everything beautifully in my opinion, and this felt more like a hamfisted attempt to try and one-up the source material for drama. Not the first time I was disappointed by the OVA though. Balalaika had a scene in the manga version that honestly moved me to tears, and I was really looking forward to fucking bawling when I saw it animated. They really fucked with the scene though, and robbed it of everything that made it pluck the heartstrings in the first place. It's like they managed to miss the whole point of the scene.

I don't recall having any real complaints about the anime adaption of the rest of the series, and I'm wondering how different the crew working on the OVA was that it became such a disappointment to me.
>> No. 84059
