I CAN'T LOSE!"

In these chaotic times, it's good to sit down and enjoy a good animated show from Japan. This thread is for discussing those shows.

Here are openings wot I like:

One Punch Man
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_fsWBERU-s

Cowboy Bebop
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Go4J1RaeuM

Kaguya-Sama : Love is War
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fnt029GX5nE

Here's some Anime vocabulary that might be useful:

Tsundere : Someone who's "hot-or-cold" towards someone, people, or just in general.

Cours : A broadcast season, generally 13 episodes long.

Yuri : Girl love.

Yaoi : Boy love.

Shonen : Boy, often referring to the demographic.

Shoujo : As above, but for girls.

Seinen : The male adult demographic.

Josei: As above, but for women.

OP : opening.

ED : credits.


One more thing:

Don't be gross. We don't want to lose our anime privilege. Thank you.

And as always,

ROW ROW FIGHT DA POWAH!

    Wait, I’m confused. Wouldn’t gay manga be fujoshi stuff, rather than “non-fujoshi”? It’s my understanding that that term is most often used to describe lady fans of gay stories.

    I believe it also has the connotation of "big nerd", so it appears she doesn't want to let her normie friend know what she's into.

    Yeah, I was confused by that too. I'm not sure if she meant "lend to a non-fujoshi" or if it was just a complete mistake in translation.

    In context it's "I'm not going to lend (to) non-Fujoshi."

    I took it as Fujoshi (plural) being written the same Fujoshi (singular).

    So, "I'm not going to lend (not a member of this group/kind of people) stuff like that."

    So many layers of translation between languages, it's actually fascinating when translators include notes for context.

    Ah, ok. So it’s “non-fujoshi” as the group she doesn’t want to lend her gay stuff to. Rather than “non-fujoshi stuff” being the description of her gay stiff.

    Saw the first volume of the Nozaki-kun manga was on sale on Kindle for $3, so I guess I'm collecting Nozaki-kun.

    Huh. Browsing Netflix today, I learned that Cardcaptor Sakura has another English dub that isn’t, you know, Cardcaptors.

    Might check it out; it’s been a long time since I saw that show, and it was that other dub anyway.

    IIRC it's a dub made for english-speaking Asian countries. Apparently it's VERY low quality. When NISA license rescued the show they included this dub with the release because SOME dub is better than none at all I suppose (and I guess Netflix felt the same). But they did list it as an "extra feature" on the box, rather than another language track which says something.

    Also from what I heard, when this dub was made for english-speaking asian TV, certain lines that refer to queerness were straight-up not localized. So that means I think this dub actually has lines that are complete silence.

    This week's episode of Kaguya:

    Once again, anime elevates manga chapters to the level of masterpiece, using soundtrack, voice acting and visual gags to their fullest potential.

    It is quite definitely the best anime adaptation I have seen so far in my life.

    Yeah, it is kinda perfect, they really have the animation live up to the writing which in turn greatly improves the writing itself and both are bolstered by impeccable voice acting and casting. The range that each character has is amazing and highlighted by all three aforementioned aspects, stunning for a show that has no need for the usual anime set pieces of crazy battles and astonishing settings. The manga only improves so every season seems like it can only get better if this crew stays on the project to completions.

    I am so, so excited for a hypothetical 3rd season of Kaguya, and this season isn't over.

    The writing just keeps getting better, as the author is a master of callbacks to what you thought were one-of gags, but end up being important. The writer is also super self-aware.

    I am going to be displeased if there isn't a third season
    If they're fitting the sports festival into this season, that means they would probably get to the cultural festival in the third season, and it's so good in the manga.

    Also, this season, I am completely convinced that we'll see (from the manga)
    the chapter where kaguya's phone breaks and the resolution because during the episode credits it has a lot of emphasis on her phone disappearing...

    End on

    The Kaguya-sama author has some interesting little tips for the ways he writes the characters that he's talked about in interviews.

    - He likes to introduce a character, and then kinda just keep them around for 10 chapters or so. He figures that after 10 chapters readers feel like they've really figured the character out. So then once the characters start to think they understand the character, he can start breaking them down and revealing other aspects to them.
    - He keeps a list of emotions for characters, and so he drafts a lot of new chapter ideas by figuring out what emotions he hasn't explored yet in such-and-such character. So he works backwards by realizing that like, Fujiwara hasn't felt embarrassed yet, and then writing a scenario where she keeps getting caught cheating at cards to explore that emotion. He never starts writing a chapter with like a setting in mind - he doesn't go like, "I wanna draw a beach episode."
    - He was agnostic on fanservice before he started writing kaguya, but now he gets fan mail from elementary school kids, and it's fucked up to write like panty-flashing scenes of characters that elementary school kids like and relate to. So now he's actively against including fanservice, and thinks it narrows one's audience too much.
    - He also hates harems.
    - Furijwara might actually have hidden inner turmoil. Or he might be trolling.
