whats that anime called?

I need it for research of course

UFO Ultramaiden Valkyrie

Unfortunately, it's not as good as people say it is. It's the kind of anime I usually like but I could barely make it past a couple of episodes.

Full Metal Alchemist was written and drawn by a woman!

She probably looked at this picture and thought " **** that! I'll show them boys I can draw boobs just as big as they can!"

Size doesn't matter in Shonen. It's how they express them.

Yeah, and, likewise, guys look far more bishie in girl's manga than do their nondescript harem counterparts. Anime has always been built upon pleasing a target audience, and, let's face it, the opposite sex is always highly important.   
Think of it like Twilight. Why did Twilight sell so well? Why, because the girl was completely nondescript and the guy was a 10/10. Why do visual novels sell? Because, just by spending time with them, even a beta, nondescript guy can score a 10/10 chick. Media is constantly built around pleasing a target audience, and it goes both ways.   
   
^pic related. Nobody at all worth dating looks like this, right?

Clannad. It's more of a feel anime than anything, but It's the best anime IMO

Any VN made by KEY is a must-play/watch imo. Little Busters, Clannad, Air, Kanon (havn't played it but watched the anime), Rewrite (about 90% through translation) and Kud Wafter (about 25%) are all games I'd reccomend to play, or at least watch the anime.
#443 to #400 - lostfaux (01/05/2013) [-]
I've watched Clannad, Angel Beats, and (am currently watching) Little Busters. They're all really good, and Key is probably my favorite company/studio that makes anime.
I think 5 centimeters per second was made by Key too. And that movie had the best visuals I have ever seen.


User avatar #444 to #443 - doldis (01/05/2013) [-]
I'm not sure how well Little Busters will translate into an anime tbh. A lot of the story in the game was connected to replaying the game. A lot like Clannad was as well in fact.
KEY seems to have a thing for giving an in-universe explanation for why you can play more than once and make different choices (in Clannad its that all the different routes are connected through the lights and the illusionary world) and in Little Busters its... Well, I can't actually say since that would probably be quite a spoiler :P.
#445 to #444 - lostfaux (01/05/2013) [-]
Alright, I don't want anything spoiled .-.   
   
But the Little Busters anime seems alright so far. I never played the VN but from what I've watched, it's a pretty good anime. I still need to get better at remembering names, it takes me a while to remember all names (Like in angel beats).

Doujinshi troubles me, because some of the higher rated oens I've seen involve sone greasy slob having sex with a girl that has disgustingly huge tits, and then cum flies everywhere like it's ******* Niagara Falls. And then there's tentacle porn.

It troubles me that people find that appealing.
User avatar #315 to #293 - wyrddarcnyzz (01/05/2013) [-]
I bet it troubles you even more that the gif that exodious posted was originally from an incest manga. And that it was hot.
User avatar #338 to #315 - bronybox (01/05/2013) [-]
I know where its from, and honestly, I don't really mind incest. I mean, if you want to **** your sister, go ahead and fantasize.

Is watching anime in Japan like watching Breaking Bad in america?
User avatar #165 to #120 - amateriandarknut (01/05/2013) [-]
If you're interested in seeing their perspective on it, watch oreimo. It's not really about that, but it illustrates how they feel about anime there rather well.

Yes, if you're comparing anime to popular english shows.

People love watching anime there, older people not as much, but still.

I particularly enjoy anime.
#142 to #130 - anon (01/05/2013) [-]
not really. In Japan, yes anime is hugely popular, but if you went around saying that you love anime you'd get the same reaction as if you said "I love Pokemon" here. It's still popular, but culturally the still believe it's for the youth, although many adults still enjoy it.

I like this explanation, thanks anon.
User avatar #139 to #120 - thisotherdude (01/05/2013) [-]
Actually from what I understand anime is more the geek thing in Japan, it's not like the magical promise land where everything is anime.

Well, I might be wrong but that's what I got from quite a few explanations around sites like FJ, I'm not going to claim to be an expert on Japanese customs since I know next to nothing about them.

From the article "5 things nobody tells you about living in Japan"
( You need to login to view this link )

"After all these years in Japan, I can honestly say that animation (major studio productions notwithstanding) is still mainly considered kids' stuff. There is shockingly little anime on television, and most of it is unapologetically meant for children. The only adults who really get into it (referred to as otaku) are usually perceived by the media as overweight, unwashed weirdos who are probably child molesters. Sound familiar? You're bound to spend just as much time hiding your Trigun DVDs from company here as you would anywhere else."

Orihime from the Shōnen manga is ment to have one of the nicest/largest pair of boobs, other girls in Bleach have smaller boobs so they're not all like that.   
   
Frankly she isn't that bad compared to some others (Rangiku/Hallibel)

Just putting it out there, but Orihime is the single worst thing to happen to Bleach. Not even Kubo's constant plot aneurisms are as bad as her constant, perpetual bitching and general ********

i feel happier after reading this conversation. two people like the same anime and the cute characters in it, they then both admit to liking porn of the same characters and nobody freaks out or starts calling names. it's like people can like both and not be psychopaths! not being sarcastic here either, thank you for the read and fuzzies.
