  1. the quality is definitely better than in the past, but i think the pool of talent just isn't quite the same. japan's been doing it for way, way longer, after all. it just generally feels like there's a higher level of skill, which i'd guess has to do with more competition since VA seems to have more prestige in Japan. just a guess, though. hearing the same handful of voices in show after show back in the day was not so good. there are also just some elements where english voice acting just clashes awfully when trying to match certain anime lines/mannerisms. listen to mayushii english VA saying tutturu for a painful example. just off the top of my head
  2. okay i might be the only one who finds subjecting people to ferris sand canyon funny but
  3. if we're posting dumb memes at least do ones that have been funny some time in the last 5-10 years
  4. but can the dub really match HELLO EVERYNYAN
  5. @winterberry oh dang that manga one is so nostalgic. at least the first half. i didn't get into yotsuba until i started learning japanese, but it's really a gem i didn't mean to imply that you shouldn't count stuff that isn't complete haha. like i'm totally comfortable doing that with Lion despite watching only S1 so far although it helps that plenty of ppl have attested to the quality being maintained anohana was cool. i watched it in like 2014 and definitely felt it at the time but i never really think about it nowadays. kind of a trend for me, actually. so long as a story is good enough to get me invested, i tend to enjoy the ride and then dwell on it more critically with time, so it's not always easy to tell how much i can say i really love something right afterwards unless it's a 10/10. so i tend to be pretty selective in what i bother to watch at all just to avoid getting invested in middling stuff. as a result of that, though, i find it hard sometimes to pick true favorites versus something i just think was very well made. when i started thinking of my favorites more for these kinds of threads, i tried to instead look at what stuff still made me feel as strongly when revisiting (whether through rewatching or discussion or w/e else), how excited i was to share it with other ppl, etc. Punpun is a great example of that because i read through it once but don't think I'll ever do that again even though i spent a long time thinking and talking about it afterwards. NHK is kind of like that, too, but the impact it had on me at the time was far beyond anything else, and i still listen to the soundtrack constantly to this day. Ghost in the Shell SAC (both seasons) would probably be my #10 but i left it off in favor of something else because i don't have that strong personal connection to it. Just think it's really good objectively. interesting approach there cute waifus are for fanart imo, not for suffering through whatever horrid trash they probably belong to also drop your favs nerd
  6. Last one's been dead for ages, so here's a fresh thread to talk about anime, manga, and any other general weebery. It seems like most anime discussion online nowadays is all about seasonal stuff, but the quality is usually sparse, and I can never keep up anyway. So talk about your favorites! Your underrated gems! Anything you found recently that gets you hyped up! Or talk about seasonal stuff anyway. Rant and rave, look for recommendations, anything you'd like ✨ As a fun idea to start, how about a 3x3 of your all-time favorites? Here's a link to make one automatically if you need it: https://anime-bingo.aikats.us/ Just uncheck "free space" and change the grid to whatever you like. Here's mine: Beck - Samurai Champloo - Stein's Gate Pokémon Special (Adventures) - Ping Pong the Animation - 3-gatsu no Lion Hourou Musuko - Princess Jellyfish - Welcome to the NHK I recently got around to watching Ping Pong after hearing about it for years, and was absolutely blown away. Normally I don't even watch my favorites more than once a year at best, but I've watched it multiple times in the last few months alone. All I have to do is hear the music and it instantly hypes me up to revisit it. Super bizarre for me, but I had no choice but to put it in the all-time favorites after that. 3-gatsu no Lion is also a relatively recent watch for me, and having only finished S1, I think it might be my #1 of all time. Ranking isn't something I typically think about a lot (the 3x3 is unordered), but it's so intensely relatable and had me choking up or outright crying nearly every episode, even at happier moments, just from the sincerity of all its emotional scenes. Doesn't hurt that it's also beautiful to look at. The color work, the backgrounds, the characters. It's all so good I can't rave about it enough ;u; I also wanna rave about Princess Jellyfish for a minute. Unlike the others, it's been a favorite of mine for a few years at this point, but it's regardless one that I think anybody who even remotely enjoys slice of life stories should check out. It sounds kind of weird and trope-y from online summaries, but it's absolutely anything but that. It's really funny and wholesome, the art is gorgeous, the plot is really cute and intense when it needs to be, and I love all the characters immensely. The creator, Akiko Higashimura, also made an autobiographical manga called Kakukaku Shikajika that was really sweet but emotional as all hell. She's by and far my favorite mangaka nowadays on the strength of those two alone.
