What the fuck, I didn't realise we had an Ishidate anime this season until you posted this.

With Naria Girls, Ishidate succeeded in making a live anime, but he introduced some flaws. Because of the three-girl cast, as soon as two of them got to know each other a bit, the third one was left out. Ishidate's close involvement with the actresses made it worse, by encouraging her to turn to him for help. In the end it had pretty good moments but always suffered from this.

Here he's going back to the successful recipe of Tesagure's third season: a mix of scripted and ad-libbed parts, a bigger cast and a mix of newbies and veterans. Pretty good first episode; very little ad-lib but man was it good to hear these voices again.

They aired the wrong episode by mistake this week, and the staff's apology was classy: "To the people that meant to drop this after episode 3: Too bad, you're already watching episode 4!".

It does seem like Anima Yell is being completely overshadowed by Lesbo Maid and Vampire Bullying. Myself, I've been pleasantly surprised by it. I was expecting a bottom-of-the-barrel kirara anime, but the characters are turning out likeable and interesting enough. It may become one of those less-known hidden gems, or it might yet come out on top of the other two if they start getting old for a lot of people (like me).

I decided to pick up girls und panzer (and right in time to catch up with it ending) because it getting so much fan support to this day means it's either something very pushed or something very special.

The first episode tells me it has the budget to be something very pushed but something about it makes me feel like it's something special.

I don't mean "why are all the main characters in real-life settings Japanese", "why is Japan often the only country left after the end of the world", or even "why do isekai inhabitants always hail Japanese food/drink/customs as the greatest thing ever, including sliced bread". All of those can be at least partially excused by the rule that a writer always writes what he knows and is comfortable with, and by the fact that most series are written for a Japanese audience, who expect to see mostly Japanese people if the story is set in Japan. It's basically the same deal as why Hollywood shows are either set in the United States or are only nominally set in (say) India or the Mideast.
I mean more of, why is it so commonly Japan against the world, both on a national level as well as a personal one? It's possible that I've just read so much that it's getting old for me, but it seems to me that "that Jap is going to go down" or "damn Japs" shows up -way- too much in fighting or war shows, and also it's pretty common for many countries' governments (except, usually, Japan's) to be shown as villainous and more or less wholly irredeemable. Is this enjoyable for the target audience? It breaks immersion and suspension of disbelief for me. You could be generous and say that the narration is biased since it's being "told" by the (Japanese) protagonists, but that's a pretty weak argument if you ask me.

If you mean recent shows like GATE, at this point Japan has begun to shift towards remilitarization. This month for the first time since WWII, the Japanese military launched an amphibious landing on foreign soil, in this case the Philippines to participate in US and Flip war games.
Last week Abe held a massive military parade including flyovers from F-35s to display Japan's military might, and it's clear Abe or at least supporters of his have their hands in the anime industry and other forms of entertainment (Shin Godzilla had a 5+ minute section of JSDF tank, jet and helicopter porn)
Also I often see at least the US on the side of Japan, except for the cases of GATE and Angel Cop.

Every country wanting to better their military image does this.

 No.27587

>>27585
The US is only generally on the side of Japan when they don't take a leading role. Even with the remilitarization in mind though it feels pretty, uh, I dunno. They make it out that literally everyone hates them "damn Japs" when in my experience the Japanese are actually one of the most well-liked foreigners, anywhere, known mostly for anime, being polite, their great food, and being somewhat cold and distant, which is pretty damn good considering what people generally have to say about their Asian neighbours or the other world powers. It's just weird. Like, is it projection?

>>27581
>It's basically the same deal as why Hollywood shows are either set in the United States or are only nominally set in (say) India or the Mideast
Writers write what they know, and when they write things they don't know they tend to do so poorly. Fu Manchu and Ivan Ivanichy Ivanovich are only amusing so many times before they're revealed for the caricatures they really are, and most plots in any case have no real need of foreign-ness. If you're talking about the agony of getting jilted or the stress of the Big Job, it doesn't really matter where the actual story is set outside of cultural coloration, and audiences generally like seeing things through a familiar lens, not a completely foreign one.

I think his point was not that a lot of countries hate Japan, but rather that the countries closest to it, and therefore the ones Japan is likely to have the most contact with, do. Therefore Japan can understandably have a biased perception of its own image.

Yuu is a lot different from how I thought of her in the manga. She seems much more uncertain. And I imagined her with a voice more like Kumiko from Hibike or something a bit more tomboyish, it'll take me awhile to get used to this soft and fragile voice.
Yuu was always my favorite by far but I'm not getting that same feeling from the anime version. But it's very possible my impression of her was way off to begin with.
On the other hand I like Nanami a lot more so far, her voice is lovely and her expressions are great, she's a lot more appealing to me than my impression of her from the manga was.
Also there's some bits of animation I quite like. I'll gladly watch the rest.

First off, I really appreciate the offer for help.
I guess I should clarify I don't scan the books by cutting them up and using a flatbed scanner etc.The way I do things is using my phone to take a picture of the page, this normally includes my fingers holding the pages flat. Because of that, exif data, and possible other means, I'd rather not share the pictures. Working on Monogatari has become a fun hobby for me, over the past year it has been a good way to distract my self from life.
Perhaps I could help you set up a similar process to mine, and you could work on other NisioIsin books that people have been asking for?

No, don't worry. I was just saying.
If you ever do decide you'd rather do it in a group with your phone pictures though, you can easily batch-crop and clean exif data, for example with imagemagick.
But if the process of digitizing the books is a hobby from which you get enjoyment, please, don't let us take it from you. You're giving us enough by releasing the result already.

As for the other NisiOisiN books, the Del Rey versions of v1 and v2 are already here >>27248 , both as scans and epubs, and the Vertical release is just a mildly retouched rerelease of the same translation, so don't let it bother you either.
That said, the first 3 volumes of Katanagatari are being released in mid November in hardcover omnibus form, so that's something to look forward to too.

Has Samachan been watching the Godzilla anime movies?
What do you think them/it so far?

I've heard complaints about the protagonist but I actually like him and think he serves the role well. Godzilla being a fucking tree is pretty lame but they did a good job (at least at the end of the first film) showcasing his power.
The second film had even less Godzilla screentime that Godzilla films with very low Godzilla screentime, though. The first time he moves is over a full hour in.
I liked the brown normal sized versions of the Shobijin, though, and the re-imaginings of Ghidorah and Mothra were really creative, just a shame Godzilla himself is so dull.

I really like it
I don't see why people dislike the protagonist. It's not like the average Godzilla humanprotagonist is much more memorable. "fuckgodzillakillgodzilla" is the logical conclusion for a human main character in Godzilla

Godzilla is fucking great in this. You really feel his power, how fucking huge he is.

I wish they animated the stuff that happens in the prequel novel instead though. It's a big kaiju apocalypse that sounds way cooler than what we actually got.

Moth humans are a really great addition to the franchise.
