Recently downloaded Battle angel Alita on my kindle and I’m already on the 4th book. I don’t know about the OVA but the manga is kino. It’s well paced and fun to read while still taking time to cover more serious topics. Also cybercunny.

Here’s a quality scan if you’re interested:

Why did you get a Swindle instead of a Kobo, or any other e-Reader that doesn't severely disrespect your freedom?


Not op but in my opinion they feel far better than the competition. I don’t think I could ever go back now that I have an oasis.

Is SEL genuinely a good show or is it Rick and morty-level pseudo intellectual larping?

I liked the aesthetic but to me it just seemed like animated boomerposting. Am I too low-iq to understand it?

This anon's right. When I watched it the first time, I could tell there were deeper themes at play but I was more focused with trying to understand a cohesive narrative . A second watch knowing what happens will allow more room to understand the why rather than the what.
He's right too




It's good though (like with Eva) does have a few scenes where it sacrifices viewer enjoyment to be "so hekin deep!!" The themes are interesting either way

>Am I too low-iq to understand it?
I've never known of a low-iq person to consider whether that, so you probably are not.
I liked serial experiments lain, but I could see why someone wouldn't. >>388 is exactly right.
If you want one that is just plain fun, you should watch "Mushoku Tensei: A Jobless Reincarnation"

It's hard to think that there hasn't been a single attempt at this absolute beast of a franchise that has even come close to doing the original story like this masterpiece has…

The worst part is that they've thrown money at the franchise and yet this short lives series was literally made on a shoestring budget. When was the moment you realized that digital animation has no soul?


It’s because the mid to late 90s had by far the most fitting aesthetic for the franchise. otherwise, it’s mostly unremarkable; it wasn’t made by some passionate studio like Ghibli and I doubt they worked with a particularly low budget.


Oriental Light and Magic is known for consistently good production value on low budgets. Aesthetic certainly carries a lot of the weight but you can't deny that there was passion that went into this project…

Especially since it got a baller dub


>When was the moment you realized that digital animation has no soul?
I don’t think digital animation is that bad. It’s like electronic music. When drum machines came out, computer nerds saw a brand new instrument they could play around with but corporate execs saw a machine they could mass produce stuff with. It’s the same with digital animation. The creative industries is defined by the battle between art and capital. It’s sad really, but that’s how it is.

New to this sort of thing, but I'd love if people gave a shot at this series I've watched the past couple of hours. It's only 10 episodes, and by episodes I mean 5 minute shorts.
The best part? It's made completely using sort of puppet-like figures and limited CG, giving it this weird uncanny valley look. Though the premise itself is pretty cute regardless.
I just wish more people knew about it T_T

I am unsure if this is the right board to post this on, but I want to get this off my chest somewhere. Lain has legitimately changed me as an individual. I used to have zero passion for anything and spent a good deal of my time whining and complaining about life. I also had identified as a transgender male, but all of this ostensibly changed after watching Lain for the first time. I realized that I had motivations and passions, and that I am not some shell of a person who could do great things but never achieve anything. Through Lain I went vaguely through a loser neet to cracked out female pipeline.I realized, in a way, that I was both falling and free. I did not have to subject myself to a misery of my own creation, that my own shackles could be broken if I literally just stopped being some loser guy jerking off in my room all day and working a dead end job. I have since realized I am a biological female who might have a mild case of autism with strange special interest that make me seem intelligent, but I realistically don't think I would have realized this stuff without Lain. Everyday I think SEL for the way in which it has helped me grow as a person. I truly love Lain.


I am also horrible at checking for typos, please excuse any spelling errors as I am a little full of sillies.

Just because religion and morality (god) as we know them are on the verge of death doesn't mean we are destined to live in meaningless hedonism.
By leaving a mark on and influencing the world and the people around us we can achieve meaning and fulfillment. A fullfilled life is a perfect balance of consuming and creating, the life of an individual influenced by the past but with ambitions to influence the future in the very same way.
Japan experienced the death of god in a very literal way (getting nuked), so nitzchean themes are present throughout any even vaguely philosophical anime. I'm glad lain helped you escape the grim destiny life of neethood or utter mediocrity. Let's all love lain.

I first recognized this problem about a year after I discovered the series for myself. To date I still haven't fully reconciled these contradictions. The closest I've come to is this:

The series seems to call us to "take care of [ourselves]," which to me proscribes a balance between indulgence in what makes us happy in an imperfect world full of suffering and engaging with reality. I was talking with an anon about this over a year ago, from whom I got this idea of balance. I don't think Evangelion is totally anti-escapist for this reason, which may excuse us from owning merchandise related to something we enjoy, but it doesn't go along with, as you note, the ridiculous quantity (and quality) of items licensed with the series.

The problem also comes from the series's own outstanding qualities. It is sleek, very tight, and wondrously blends technoreligious symbolism with genuine psychoanalytic inquiry, but in such a way that naturally leads people to think about what it all means (even though Anno himself has said there is no definitive answer, take that as you will). Further, the characters are appealing, not only in terms of the female characters being attractive, but in terms of all of them being relatable and sympathizable, which deepens our attachment to them. So it seems that the characteristics of the series and its characters predisposed it and them to becoming cultural icons and objects of obsession and, indeed, desire for many people.


That is not to say, though, that I am fully comfortable with this conclusion. I have felt in the past that, if I truly accept the series, I have to reject owning anything related to it, because it seems hypocritical and, as noted, contradictory. Maybe it is a simple capitulation to my own base desires to be satisfied that I own things related to it; I don't have figures, but I do own DVD copies of the series and many other small artefacts from the past twenty-five years. Maybe I am wrong. As I said, I haven't fully reconciled this, and I doubt most people that know the series even think about this as a problem - though that is a reflection on them, not the series.

Try something new. There are a lot of shows out there, and if you never seek change neither will you ever be satisfied. Everything else will be inferior to the original.

on another note i'm pretty sure you'd like komi can't communite.


There isn't any other anime that is like Nichijou. I have not seen Yuru Yuri but I'd figure it maybe a bit similar, Azumanga Daioh is also a little similar
