Well, winter is coming soon, so I may as well make a thread. What're you looking forward to in the winter?
Personally I'm looking at Overlord II, Dagashi Kashi II, Violet Evergarden, Citrus, Karakai Jouzu, and Mitsuboshi Colors.
Especially the last two, they feel like they'll be really heartwarming if they don't completely botch it up.


There are quite a few I'm looking forward to since there is quite a bit of SoL. I hope they will live up to expectations though.


At the very least I can't even imagine how they'd begin to ruin Colors. It's not especially difficult to adapt.


Have you got the picture with all of the series lined up?


Livechart you mean? It's this
But I don't know how people come out with those big-ass pictures, do they stitch them up manually? Neregate died last year so I don't know what the go-to for charts is anymore.


Thanks very much


We got two Grand Order mini series but where the HECK is my 100 episode adaption?


>Neregate died last year
What the fuck - oh shit the website actually is down, I had to use Wayback Machine to even see the down post
What the fuck man


Are they even mini-series? I thought they were one episode OVAs.
Also there's that shitty school one, I guess
When is Last Encore supposed to air again, spring 2018?


It says on that website the first episode is in 37 days


I guess I'm motherfucking blind, how did I miss that.


Apologise by watching through the entirety of it with me and posting in the thread after every episode


I was planning to anyway
I sure hope it's not nerowank
who the fuck am I kidding it's going to be fucking nerowank

I'm really excited, it's shaping up to be my busiest season in years! Even if I end up dropping all the 'maybes', it'll still be above average.

Antarctica Girls is probably the most likely to be disappointing, since the PV makes it seem like Antarctica is just a sort of macguffin and it's really all a metaphor for growing up or whatever, which makes it a toss-up for me. Based on the writer and director, I'm not super hopeful, but it might be okay.
Violet Evergarden is from the same director as Kyoukai no Kanata, but I'm gonna roll the dice on it anyway. It looks fairly serious in tone, so with any luck that means it won't stray too far into obnoxious LN trope territory.
Killing Bites is there just because I want to see a honey badger girl in action.
And I'm curious to see if Shaft does anything interesting with Fate/Extra, or if it'll just be a shit generic cash-in.

Aside from that, all the other maybes just looked okay enough to give three episodes.




What do you mean by obnoxious LN trope?
And Fate/Extra honestly doesn't give me high hopes. Did you play the game? I didn't think the plot was good at all, really, and can't imagine how it'd be adapted. It's not a complete goddamn shitshow like Apocrypha, sure.

>Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san

Here's what I don't get - is liking ramen supposed to be a non-girl thing to do or something? Because it's just a good meal, isn't it? Is it like eating steaks in the west or something?


>is liking ramen supposed to be a non-girl thing
Yes, actually. I can’t really explain much but it’s considered weird to see girls alone in ramen shops.
For some reason.


Huh. So what do girls eat then, because ramen's a cheap quick meal innit? Conveyer sushi sounds too expensive. Soba maybe?


It's going to be an original route for adaption for Fate extra, so it might surprise us


I am predisposed to not watching anime in the near future so probs gonna just skip most if not all
I mean damn I have behind on all shows from THIS season besides maybe sparkly land && girls in big snow city (and bland ass, unfortunately)


It's more of the opposite, less of the idea that ramen is not a girl's thing but more the idea that ramen is a man's thing. Especially the likes of jiro ramen. And I think it's more common for females to eat with company though it's not strictly the case.

Yeah, there's a lot on my list as well. You're watching everything I'm watching.


>ramen is a man's thing
Ah so yeah, like how we might view a big steak here. Not so much that girls can't eat it but that it's just a stereotypical thing boys would order.


this post made some people very angry over at /r/


replying to myself rofl


That plot wasn't great or anything, but I thought it made for a fine little spinoff game. Again, I'm more curious to see how it turns out than hopeful that it'll be good.
>What do you mean by obnoxious LN trope?
Seriously? How about this, contrast the PVs for Violet Evergarden and Beatless.


Yeah I was just making sure
Because I mean LNs in general can be obnoxious, presumptuous, 3deep5u, I just didn't know what you were referring to.


I'm excited for Fate/Extra and Overlord season 2 but that's because I'm a simple fellow with simple desires.


I'm a simple fellow so I'm looking forward to Fate/Extra and Overlord season 2


Let's see if I can stop being retarded for one minute and actually post where I want to post.

I'm excited for these too, I know Fate isn't some revolutionary or even good stuff but it makes me happy. Looking forward to Extra this winter.


I'm just excited for winter in general.


I've been hype for the new Cardcaptor Sakura for like a year now. I really like the manga of Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, so I'll probably check that out.
I'm going to have to check out the schedule in the near future and see what other good stuff is coming.


I've never even heard of Ramen Daisuki Koizumi-san, is the manga that good?


It's not a masterpiece or anything, but it's a fun and funny story about a girl who's really into ramen.
I like food manga a lot.


File: Rindou.png (416 KB, 1011x875) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Speaking of food manga did you like Shokugeki no Souma or nah? I don't like the direction it's been taking recently, it seems on a fast track to me the 'totally just normal everyman' MC horrendously overpowered over geniuses, and geniuses that've worked just as hard and just as long as he has
The whole 'it's just hard work' thing doesn't hold any fucking water when the genius works as hard as the non-genius.


>Shokugeki no Souma
I haven't read it, but the description on MAL makes it sound kind of fun. Kind of like a fighting manga with cooking instead of kung fu. How much does it actually focus on the food? One of the things I really enjoy about the genre is the food porn, and also learning about dishes I might not have heard of before.


File: Jouichirou.PNG (693.71 KB, 763x754) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Oh get real you gaijin, why MAL ffs
Anyway it focuses heavily on the food, one of the consultants for the manga is a very cute sexy owner chef who runs a cooking show on national television, all of the dishes are either real or workable, and it teaches you some actual legitimately used tricks in real professional cooking. In the tankobans there's even recipe pages for the signature dishes made during that arc (this stops later, presumably because the dishes later on become so complex or dependent on 'touch' / precision that anyone who needs a recipe from manga won't be able to make it).
I recommend you read the manga, it's drawn by TOSH (yeah the former h-artist), the anime is okay but it's one of those cases where it simply does not do the manga justice.


That sounds pretty cool. I may check it out.
>the former h-artist
So it's sexy, right?
>Oh get real you gaijin, why MAL ffs
Why not? I watch a lot of anime and read a lot of manga, and it's a convenient way to keep track of everything.


It doesn't seem useful to me at all. If you watch the anime then you probably have it downloaded anyhow and if not you can always use a straight up text file to keep track of your anime
If you read manga then even if you don't download, places like batoto and kissmanga, mangapark, etc. have 'followed' manga.
Either way I guess.

>so it's sexy, right?

There's a good deal of fanservice but more importantly the art is very very good, especially later on with the full-body portraits.


File: 08-09.png (876.58 KB, 1765x1300) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Here's one from the last chapter for a sample


I mostly stream my anime (give me shit if you want), and even when I download it I usually delete it when I'm done. Plus, MAL makes it easy to keep track of what I watch on mobile vs my computer. To each their own, I guess.

That looks pretty good.


You should read/watch the godfather of Japanese cooking manga/anime - Mister Ajikko.


It hasn't aged well, in my opinion.


I'm a fan of 80s manga artstyles so I may give it a try.


It's certainly good from an 'objective' point of view in the same vein Akagi is good
It's just that the aging didn't really work like Akagi.


It's one of the biggest culinary manga of the time alongside Oishinbo and Cooking Papa but it's the one that introduces and influences the more exaggerated side of the genre that can be found in the likes of Shokugeki no Souma, unlike the other two which focuses on realism.

It might not have "aged well" for the modern viewers as the other posters mentioned but if you are into older stuffs then it's definitely worth a look. There are still tons of other decent stuffs too.


Alright, I actually sat down to look over this season. Looks to be yet another very good one (third one in a row!)
I will be picking up:
• CCS remake (morbid curiosity)
• Trigger mecha show (why not)
• Hakumei to Mikochi (sounds cute)
• Popikupipukipu (obliged by law)
• Mitsuboshi Colors (cute lolis!)
• Big-forehead bully (the manga is so popular even I read it)
• Slow Start (meh)
• Yuru Camp (meh?)
• Toji no Miko (sounds generic but is anime original)
• Uchuu yori mo Tooi Basho (will be aots)
See you all on the other side!

>CCS remake (morbid curiosity)
Nothing to be worried about, from what I've seen. It's being made by the same staff, featuring the same cast, the prequel OVA demonstrated that the animation looks good, and I haven't seen any hate for the manga it's adapting (which is a continuation, not a remake). There's no reason to be anything but excited about it.
>Trigger mecha show (why not)
Because it's going to be terrible, that's why not.
>Uchuu yori mo Tooi Basho (will be aots)
Care to elaborate on that prediction?


>Care to elaborate on that prediction?
nice boat


ah, there's an OVA?
gotta watch that sometime first


Yeah it was uploaded pretty fast


Would it be bad if I said I started watching Cardcaptor Sakura in 2010 and still have not finished it?


Yes, but not to worry, you still have about ten days to finish it RIGHT NOW before the new season starts!


I was kind of hoping to see if I could go until 2020 before finishing it, but I guess there's no time better than the present.


But why, though?


Figured if I've made it 7 years, might as well make it 10.


Whatever floats your boat.


Ready up your winter anime folders.

I'm ready for Dagashi Kashi II, otherwise known as hot sweaty teens the anime


Dagashi Kashi was bad


I'm current with the manga so it won't be anything new for me, but I'm ready for it too. Should be fun.


It had HUGE titties though


Dagashi Kashi was okay (not great) and had really cute girls.
I liked learning about all the snacks and candy.

File: [Erai-raws] Yuru Camp - 01….jpg (136.46 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

The first episode of Yuru Camp was good, as expected. But there's not really any point making a thread since every week would just be another few posts saying "yep, still comfy".


Didn't even see this on the list
Is it a camping anime as the name suggests, or what?


File: [HorribleSubs] Yuru Camp -….jpg (303.87 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Yep. The protag is a camping enthusiast, and it looks like she's going to meet the other four girls and introduce them to the joys of camping while simultaneously learning how fun it is to camp with other people rather than alone. A bit of comedy, but more SoL.


I'm glad you said something. I wanted to watch this, but I apparently forgot to add it to my list.
>"yep, still comfy"
Iyashi-kei is one of my favorite genres, but it makes for lousy discussion.


Yuru Camp is cute! Cute!
I used to camp quite a bit when I was a kid, so it brings back pleasant memories of sitting around the fire cooking things speared on sticks.
I also thought it was neat that the narrator explained how to make a campfire.


my question is what is the point of camping if you don't take a piss in the woods?


it's actually to take a shit in the woods, let's be honest


Where else would you piss while camping in the woods if not in the woods

evidently, in the nearby public toilet


I've heard that girls have a harder time with that sort of thing.
Plus, we're talking about Japanese highschoolers here, so it's not going to be "real" camping anyway.

Pic related.

Otherwise, Pop Team Epic is fine just as expected and I'm gonna watch Citrus soon.


Which website's RSS is this? Also no Overlord II or Ramen?




>Darling in the FranXX
You brave soul. Be sure to let us know if it turns out not to be KLK 2.0.


>Overlord II
Might give it a try. Also, Ramen doesn't seem interesting at all.


File: [HorribleSubs] Ryuuou no O….jpg (157 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

Ryuuou no Oshigoto looks like it's shaping up to be pretty disappointing. I think it could be great if Blue would just fuck off, but on the contrary I'm guessing that four more of her are going to show up and drive it straight into the ground. It might even pull the old "they all move in with him so they can beat him up 24/7 and he does nothing about it because he's a doormat" trope.
But I'll give it one more episode, just in case.


Well that sucks, it looked cute


File: [HorribleSubs] Ryuuou no O….jpg (172.99 KB, 1280x720) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.

To be fair, the other 70% of the episode was very cute, which is why I'm still giving it a chance. Having not read the LN, I don't know where the focus is going to end up or how bad (if at all) the other characters will be; maybe I'm overreacting and it'll turn out okay. But I've seen this pattern unfold too many times to be at all optimistic.


dropped mitsuboshi Colors and slow start after a few minutes.
both seemed to have mediocre production values and i disliked the character designs.

slow start actually made me seriously question just why i was watching yet ''another'' anime about pointless japanese school girl days.
Mitsuboshi Colors just seemed kinda stupid, what am i meant to get out of this again?

most of the shows i've enjoyed lately have adult characters.

need more anime about depressed working class alkies and their non existent lives, heh


You're probably like me, once you've left highschool/college, anime about that time and problems those people face isn't really entertaining anymore.
I'm 27 so it's pretty pathetic to watch stuff about people 11-13 years younger than me.


>once you've left highschool/college, anime about that time and problems those people face isn't really entertaining anymore.
Exactly the opposite for me.


I just watched Slow Start. It's nothing special, but it's the sort of cute fluff I love to watch after work. I think it's a keeper.
I actually think I enjoy high school anime more than I did when I was younger. Adult life sucks; I don't really need it in !my entertainment.


You've got it backwards, you're supposed to use your pastimes for escapism, not furthering your spiral into depression.
I love me some cute fluff, but Slow Start seems to take its title so literally, I just couldn't get into the first episode. And it's hardly even referenced, let alone done anything with, the one unique part of its premise. In fact, thinking back on it, it feels like nothing happened. I don't mean that in the flippant way that people use to dismiss SoLs as a genre, but that really, nothing at all happened, it was just character introductions. The only thing keeping me from dropping it is a firm belief in the three-episode rule, because that was probably the least compelling first episode of any anime I've ever seen.
Mitsuboshi Colors is neat though, it's like Yotsubato with three Yotsubas ganging up on one Yanda.


Mitsuboshi Colors is super fun. I loved watching them annoy the poor cop.


you're not supposed to self-insert


>You've got it backwards, you're supposed to use your pastimes for escapism, not furthering your spiral into depression.
Weirdly enough, by self inserting into characters my age with normal lives manages to make mine bearable


I sure hope Kodoku no Gurume gets translated.


I read the first volume of Slow Start and it became a personal favourite - lately I'm burning out on cuteness-focused SoL and I appreciated Slow Start for its brand of humour. It does have a slow start but eventually the premise is introduced and put to good use. Let's see how the adaptation turns out.


>KLK 2.0
Why do you say that? It's a mecha show, so if anything I expect an even shittier retread of Gurren Lagann.
But since it's Trigger, I expect to be entertained.


I think shortening Dagashi Kashi's runtime is a big improvement. I liked the original but I often lost interest before the end of episodes.
Hotaru is still lewd, Saya is still cute, the goldfish still looks like it's in the wrong show.

Nothing lewd about it.


>pretty gay
You say that like it's a bad thing.


Okay, I'm officially and unrestrainedly hyped for Slow Start. I loved the manga but was bracing for a botched adaptation. But nope, jokes are well delivered, focus is where it belongs and on top of that I'm getting a pretty nice animation. In theory this should become my #1 cute girls anime now.

Marchen Madchen is pretty dumb, but at least somewhat self-aware and kind of endearing. I can't exactly honestly recommend it, but if you're somehow starved for seasonals and like awkward, clumsy, dumb, questionably-homosexual girls, it's fun enough.


>questionably homosexual
It's pretty explicit, they're laying it on so thick I'm actually wondering if it's a falseflag.

Is it shit?

>Is it shit?
It's one of those series that would be decent, except the author felt the need to shoehorn in a character who does nothing except ruin all the fun, for some reason. You know the type. She's not Benio-tier, but still bad enough that I can't stomach it.
However, if you're good at ignoring that sort of thing, the loli mahjong parts are fun, so you might enjoy it.


>except the author felt the need to shoehorn in a character who does nothing except ruin all the fun, for some reason
Yeah, I do know the type. What's even the point of people like that in these sorts of shows? I could see it in a more serious series but in these fluffy fun series, having someone whose sole purpose is to tell you to stop having fun seems incredibly ass-backwards.


Honestly I didn't find it as big of a problem as you're making it out to be
The show itself is comfortable enough that I can easily disregard it, and honestly she doesn't even feel that offensive.


I didn't know how to say this, but now that you've cleared the path I'll straight-up confess that I like Ginko.

I shouldn't. I normally dislike this type of character, not because of any kind of fun ruining, but because they appeal to masochistic self-insertion which is not my thing. But somehow I find her abusiveness tolerable and I like her overall.


She's not the worst example of that archetype I've seen, but I've sat through too many series with characters like her and always ended up regretting not dropping them, so this time I'm finally trusting my gut and bailing out now.
Good for you if you can get past it though, enjoy those lolis twice as hard for my sake.


Finally getting around to watching anime after fucking work has decided to give me a break
Currently downloading 100+ episodes, wish me luck~
Also wasn't Last Encore supposed to come out days ago?


It came out, but it hasn't gotten subs yet.


Is it not airing on Crunchy or some shit?

It's not being simulcast, but there are subs. Not great subs, but good enough for now. Avoid FMF (trollsubs) and Senritsu (misheard lines, incorrect terminology).
The adaptation has really gone off the rails already, so I hope Shaft know what they're doing.


Head tilts and "artsy" minimalist imagery. Of course they know what they're doing.

Nah, it's not 2009 anymore, sadly. This does still feature the good old Shaft Architecture™, though, despite the school's being painfully normal in the original.
More importantly, what I meant is that the story is already being totally changed around, so I hope that's a choice for the better, meant to make it work as an anime rather than a game.

I'm glad you're finally in the 21st century one way or the other, but you can get much better control and flexibility by setting up client-side RSS rules.
Really though, how did you make it to 2018 still, what, manually refreshing Nyaa every day to check for new releases? I've genuinely forgotten what it's like to not have any sort of automation.

Don't apologize to me mate, past you is the one who suffered.


Different anon here. Do you have a suggestion how I can filter out batch releases from groups that don't put the filename extension into their individual torrents and don't put "batch" or whatever into their batches?


I am using the HS RSS.
from jetpacks to carved-bone hair garments, how caveman am I?


You're all so cute, using HTTP to periodically ask about new torrents. IRC API masterrace here - TT messages me the instant a new torrent is up.

Single episodes will have an episode number and batches won't, so I'd use a regex that searches for that number. Syntax varies from one implementation to another, "\d{2}" will work in some (that means "a group of exactly two characters which are digits").

In the event that the group puts something like "01-12" in their batch filenames, a more complex regex could filter that out. Once you go regex, the solution is always more regex.

But, hey, maybe that "episode filter" field can do some magic and you don't need to learn regex yet?


You could build a fancy regex filter, and might learn a neat thing or two in doing so; or you could use my lazy technique for grabbing from public trackers, which is simply to add the torrents paused instead of starting them automatically. Since I have a pretty okay connection, each episode takes only two to three minutes to download, so whenever I see a new torrent pop up, I can just manually verify and start it, and the wait is negligible.
Or you could do it like Hackerman >>24316 there and use XDCC, though I don't really know the details of how to fully automate that process.


Allow me to clarify. I don't use XDCC, I use bittorrent. But instead of requesting an RSS feed periodically, I have an IRC bot listening on a channel where torrents are announced.

It's a shame only TT offers this, as it's better for both parties. Users get their torrents instantly instead of (RSS update interval)/2 later on average, and servers save the bandwidth and processing power they spend on RSS.

As for automating XDCC, it shouldn't be hard. Maybe you could even do it by scripting an ordinary IRC client, without the need to write an IRC bot.


Automating XDCC downloads is trivial and there's really no point in using a dedicated bot for it. Personally though I just add the shows I'm watching to the alert list for my preferred bot channel and manually grab them each day. Never felt the need to automate something that takes so little effort, especially these days when there aren't very many real groups left to keep track of other than those for a few niche shows who tend to only release on nyaa anyways.


The only real reason to automate downloads to start the minute the episode is released is if you are torrenting and you want to be involved in the uploading process.
Otherwise it's a minor inconvenience at best when you have to go fetch yourself a drink while your episode downloads.


properly downloading cartoons takes a lot more technical knowledge than one'd expect


It depends on what you consider "proper".
But as with anything, the more knowledge you have, the more you can optimize things.
You can also apply knowledge and knowhow to streaming. An amateur might google an anime and start streaming it on some 3rd rate website loaded with ads and viruses at horrible quality.
An expert would go to a source that would have the file in decent quality and then instead of watching it in the imbedded player load it into his proper video player. (then he'd automate the process)


do you automate the "watching" part, too?


I pay an Indonesian orphan boy by the episode to watch anime and post about them on Samachan for me. Really frees up a lot of time.
