Anime you just watched おたく 01/23/2021 (Sat) 23:07:50 No. 6215 [Reply]
Thread where we talk about anime we just watched, and tell others if it's good or not. Just got done with "First Squad", a Russian-Japanese co-production. It's about an occult battle behind the scenes during the Great Patriotic War. Looks great, solid Sovietcore throughout. But the story and characters are flat as a board, relying mostly on exposition to get the backstory across. Feels like a good idea that was not properly whittled down to a movie script. Wasted potential.

>>6292 (cont.) Now that I've finished it, I can say it did pick up at the end with a few short arcs. None of them all that great mind you, but at least they were there. Which only makes the absence in the first eight episodes all the more galling - setting the stage, building characters, building the world - none of that should be an excuse to have nothing happen while you are doing it. You can have story arcs and tension even with low stakes. Also something to note, I don't know what the right word is, it's a kind of dissonance. The sub-genre - cute girls doing cute things - is here forced into telling a story of melancholy decay in the shadow of war. It just doesn't fit. Not gonna accuse them of doing this to feign depth, this is not a cynical work but obviously a loabour of love. It just doesn't entirely work is all. Aisha was a cute tho
>>6317 I do feel like Sora no Woto detracts from the message to fall into the trappings of the cute girls doing cute things genre, as if they were afraid that just having the cast be girls wouldn't be enough to sell it. The decaying post apocalyptic Spanish countryside setting is really cool though
>>6318 >Spanish I was thinking Provencal, but yeah that's basically what kept me watching. Anime falls into this often I feel, good ideas that are hindered by sub-genre conventions rather than lifting them up. Outbreak Company also suffered heavily from this for example - a honest to god smart twist on isekai but still weighed down by all the shitty tropes.

>>6320 It's based on Cuenca, Spain.
Another series consumed in the 'rona time-vacuum. This one I can recommend wholeheartedly if only because it's something different and original: Land of the Lustrous A somewhat unreal land inhabited by girl-coded humanoid crystals. We follow the misfortunes of the youngest and weakest of the bunch as she goes through a year of personal growth and transformation through interaction with her fellows and various invaders. There's enough personality in the myriad crystal themed characters to keep you empathizing, and enough weirdness to the world to keep you trying to figure it all out. Comes together for a tight mix of high-concept far-out setting with low-concept focus on character development and interaction. It's 3D animation, but here it rather helps to give everything a more alien tinge. Sadly ends on a bit of a cliffhanger with no second season.

>>6254 I think so, it's specific to unauthorized translations, otherwise it would be just a regular translator.

Ascendance of a Bookworm おたく 02/11/2021 (Thu) 01:26:20 No. 6290 [Reply]
Anyone else disappointed that while Ascendance of a Bookworm does focus on class relations of its fantasy feudal world, our protagonist from the modern world doesn't critique the system as well Hank Morgan from A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court did? Sure Motosu/Myne is far more disadvantaged but even when she explained why she wants to help the orphans to Ferdinand she comes off as having no modern perspective on the problem or any grand idea of what she wants to replace the existing system with.
Lol nobles have magic powers what's she gon

>>6325 Outside empowering the merchant and artisan class with her modern knowledge, crush them with superior magical ability.

Which anime girl do you think would be most open to you worshipping her feet or even encourage/get off on it? Hard mode is not saying pic related.
>>6313 I feel like she would be embarassed about it, she teases senpai but that's it. They need to be either domineering or just a bit kinky to enjoy it. Pic related

Eren did nothing wrong. This stupid fake idealistic selflessness was created by international capitalists to devalue workers via moral manipulation
My favorite character is the leader because he is convinced there is people outside the wall lmao take your meds schizo.
>>6287 none of this would happen if they saved comrade erwin instead
