I am watching Little Witch Academia and The Ancient Magus Bride right now. But I downloaded the Your Name movie for later too.



Even on one of my 2560x1440 monitors I can't show them all. And this is reduced 50% for filesize so it might be hard to read. Get the idea?

Do you get all of Funimation content?  I thought you were limited.  I watch it now for free with commercials.  I'll have to check into the Premium version and see what that includes.  Thanks.

Think TBs instead. 8oP

Seeding is when you give and leeching is when you take. So you leech the first block (That your computer decides is the rarest) then ideally seed the first block you got and leech the next block (depending on rarity again). A seeder is someone who has the whole file so they only can seed. A leecher is either someone without the complete torrent but does partially seed or more properly a person who only takes because a firewall (either at a router, computer, or both) is preventing partially seeding the torrent back to the group torrenting that particular torrent. Upnp and torrent programs normally automatically correctly configure firewalls these days. Also a "false seeder" is someone with the whole torrent but has the firewall problem. Think chicken and egg.

Excede/Viasat's modem with a built in router that cannot be bridged can be a problem especially if you already have a router unless you "punch through" their router firewall. I just told their router my router was a server so go away. That is normally not too safe but I have my good Asus RT-3200 with Merlin firmware protecting me next in line.

I was out for a few weeks and this thread is still very much alive! I don't know if it counts but I did watch a little of the Castlevania series. I didn't finish it (Too many good things on now) but I was interested having played the games

I knew about the Castlevania games bout have never heard about an anime adaption.

I did some research and found what you are referring to is an US American Netflix web animated series based on scripts from a failed movie attempt based on the games. I like both Japanese Anime and US Animation (especially Disney, Pixar, and their ilk) so I am going to have to look into that one.

Just to round things out I pretty much like any Animated series or movie. Have you ever heard about the Italian live action/animated movie "Allegro non Troppo"? It is pretty trippy like the Fantasias. And there is also a version without the live action which is the one I think I saw in a college showing whereas I can only find the other version in digital form so far.

Also, did you know there is a planned release this year with Netflix again of a second season of the Castlevania animation?

It is really a good romantic multiple love story. A love polygon of sorts. And a deep thoughtful story too.

No, because that is to crack down against Japanese pirates in Japan.

The damage has already been done here with two major anime (and manga) torrent listing sites going private (by invitation only, password protected) to avoid the unreasonable harassment that has been happening over here plus another going offline (but picked up by others).

I am not for pirating but Fair Use of legally owned titles and access to otherwise unobtainable material. Unfortunately such freedom can be used by unscrupulous pirates too who do not understand they are hurting all of us by not making US distribution profitable enough to license titles from Japan here.

Hi everyone.

We are very glad that there's a off-topic thread that everyone is excited about. Feel free to chat away about your favorites but let's please keep it from dwelling into the mature corners of Anime. 

Thanks!

Deka, I thought you were kidding but my reply got stomped on. And they even consider Anime off topic. Kibishi (harsh). I will still give recommendations if asked but keep an eye on the site.

bpilettjr,

On this Viasat forum, anime is technically off-topic.  We don't mind, as we encourage the community to grow!  However, topics need to remain family-friendly. 

Talking about sexually explicit subjects is a bit far, giving site names to directly access them is more so.  There are other sites and forums that are focused on that.  Please keep it off this forum.

It's been quite a while since this thread got a nice bump, so since I am rewatching Ouran High School Host Club until I get more data, I figured I'd recommend it for all of those who may not have seen it yet.  You can legally stream it both subbed and dubbed on Netflix and you can stream it subbed on Crunchyroll.  If you have a Funimation account you should be able to find the dub on there as well, but I have not confirmed that.  

Another fantastic series that is licensed and available for streaming through Funimation and Crunchyroll (for dub and sub respectively) is Steins;Gate!  I highly, highly, highly recommend it and it's new season is currently airing, which you can stream every Wednesday subbed on Crunchyroll. 

I may toss some more random recommendations as "bumps" in the future.

Ugh. So the manga and anime have the same ending? Bummer. I just looked into the Wikipedia entry for Mahoromatic and it seems that the manga's ending is similar but weirder and not as tragic as the anime so I guess I will have to try it.
The anime "Chivalry of a Failed Knight" is a definite recommend especially after dealing with "ScumsWish". CFK's light novel, manga, and anime all supposedly follow the same storyline from what I have read so any of them should be good.
I am currently rewatching "Stellvia of the Universe". I love the opening song by Angela. It is too bad the second season got killed but the 26 episodes we have are great. There is a manga but it was written after the anime since Stellvia started only as an anime.

Yeah the main series manga ended the same, the sequel to the main series is the one I was talking about, it ended on a positive note, *spoiler warning*  it looks like Mogi and Hinabi will finally get together and become a proper couple *spoiler warning over*  It's just I wanted more than 6 chapters and I wanted to see more of what was to come.

Sequel is good vibes but an afterthought then.
I have always complained about poor anime endings. I wonder if they are from Japan's self-depreciating culture or inferiority complex from losing WW2

I wouldn't call the anime of Scum's Wish "poor" it's just not a happy one.  Their relationship not being able to work out at the end of the anime makes sense considering all that's happened, while I definitely wanted them to be there for each other and stay together, I can understand why they may not have wanted to at that point.

I wish there was a place I could go to figure out the pros and cons of different digitized releases (video,audio,dual audio, subtitle style, and subtitle accuracy vs cultural barriers). BakaBT used to be a good place to start until they went private.
Dubs from BluRay,DVD,streamed or otherwise are great for newbies and casual watchers but I have gone so far beyond that that I am almost ready to shut off the subtitles or watch Japan released anime. I am still working on Japanese grammar and fast speech though. I do find myself arguing with the translations presented in subtitles sometimes though.

That is why I am not trying to get on any private sites. With my crowded beam and plan, I do not have much seeding bandwidth. It is hard enough to get out releases I have made.

Sometimes I wonder if manga and anime writers have a complex from the war or their society to make so many bad endings?
RGU is good but it gets surreal at the end. Don't want to say anymore than that so I don't spoil it for you.
I keep forgetting about Aoi Hana even though Aoi from Ai Yori Aoshi is one of my favorite characters. I'm getting AH now. Thanks for reminding me.

Sorry I don't quite see why you'd remember a show with the word "Aoi" in the title just because you happen to like a character from another anime with that name lol.  But, no problem nonetheless.  Also, to answer your question about anime and manga writers, it's because they genuinely believe that's a good ending ,got lazy or had to rush. Those are the three paths to a bad ending, writing endings isn't all that easy, it's hard to wrap everything up in a neat little bow that can satisfy most people.  You also have to consider the amount of time they're given, most mangaka work on weekly schedules doing the story and art themselves while only getting feedback from an editor.  An editor can just say, "I don't like that, change it" and they'll have to change it however many times all within this one week time span.  

So, I can understand why an anime/manga writer might end up with a sub-par conclusion to their story, not that my understanding makes it any less disappointing, but I do have a fair understanding as to why it may have been like that.  

Edit: I realize you probably weren't looking for a serious answer or anything, but there you go I guess lol.

That is because I do many visual - memory cues due to the short term memory problems I have from the Gulf War especially with the Fibro I have. Plus, the Ai Yori Aoshi title has many translations that relate to blue too. The "official" title is supposed to be "Bluer than Indigo" (A reference to the indigo color that blue kimonos turn with age due to the dye used) but it could also be things like "Love More Blue". Aoshi can also mean green but I just can't see that in context.
Considering human nature, I can see what you mean about endings. I think ours over here for movies and books have suffered too. In my era and before it was easier because endings had to involve Truth, Justice, The American Way, and/or True Love conquering all. I know life is rarely, if ever, anything like that at all but not reaching that high in thought risks a society spiraling downward on each worse rung of realism that is accepted. There are differences in each person's sensibilities so obviously we will not all agree on endings. A good example for my sensibilities is that I avoid horror and gore as much as I can because as one who studies history and having been a military brat and a military man, I have seen or studied much, much worse and do not want to be reminded of such things. A little peace and happiness once in a while would be nice even if it is a story.

Ah i see, on the note of sensibilities it is fine to enjoy happier stories with happy endings, but to use Scum's Wish as an example, a sad ending doesn't mean a low quality one. Also, if you want to see it end on a high note, read Scum's Wish Decor the 6 chapter sequel manga.

So, I know this is an anime thread, but I doubt any of you will particularly mind me recommending some of my favorite manga here lol.  So, here's a quick list of manga I really like and feel more people should give a try.

Bokura no Hentai: (no it's not actually hentai, the name officially translates to "Our Own Metamorphoses")

Wandering Son/Hourou Musuko:(it also has an 11 episode anime, but it only covers a little bit of the manga while also skipping around, so for the full experience read the manga)

Kanojo ni Naru Hi & the spin-off Kanojo ni Naru Hi Another: (the translation for this is kinda rough, but it's basically "The day to become her" though I have seen it be translated as "Becoming a Girl one day") 

Girlfriends: if the name doesn't tell you what genre it is, I'll let you know it's Yuri.  

Kase-san: it's a short manga consisting of around 25 chapters and is also Yuri, you may have to look up asagao to kase-san to get it to come up, but it is also often referred to as "the kase-san series" as it more so a series of connected short stories all with new titles with the only similar being "and kase-san" or in Japanese "と加瀬さん" 

My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness: great autobiographical manga that won manga of the year at the Crunchyroll Awards last year, I know that is a laughable event to many, but it is a genuinely great manga that just about everyone can relate to. 

A Silent Voice, just a beautiful manga that has an amazing movie adaptation, but yet again for the full story go to the manga. 

Fumitsu no Anata e or To Your Eternity: the currently on-going series by Yoshitoki Ooima the author of A Silent Voice.  

There ya go, that's all that I could think of off the top of my head.  I'll be sure to update with more recommendations if people want.

Do you like gender bender at all? It seems like all of them end up being boy to girl but that the girl or girls still seem to like. I think I told you about Kasi Masi (or Kashi Mashi) Girl meets Girl.

Nice. I'm looking forward to it then. Sorry, I have been mainly on the Anime side of things and just started getting into Manga so I hope you'll forgive my ignorance.

This is the one off topic post that just keeps going like a Anime Energizer Bunny!

I know I may come off like this guy: https://media.giphy.com/media/AyyJ82RCqtxKw/giphy.gif

But again while we like the off-topic discussions we're sort of steering back into tiptoeing into Hentai territory so just a quick reminder to avoid that topic to keep this thread open as we want to keep this forum in PG/PG13 territory. To each their own but we ask that we stay out of that area. Consider it the sub-genre that must not be spoken.  Thanks!

Glad you liked it, I'm pretty sure the anime only covered part of the manga, but I've yet to read the manga myself so that's only what I've heard.

So, @Jim16 I take it you're all caught up for Index? Been watching season 3 myself and so far it's pretty good, really surprised they announced a s3 for the spin-off series A Certain Scientific Railgun as well as a season 1 to A Certain Scientific Accelerator, both of which I'm very excited for.

Michael3245, try Ai Yori Aoshi, Ah My Goddess, or Zero No Tsukaima (The Familiar of Zero).

I also recommend trying to watch them in Japanese audio with English subtitles. English audio (Dubs) lose much in translation. Basic Japanese vocabulary (audio words) is pretty easy to learn with Anime.

If those are not to your liking, tell me about your age and interests. But try to give them a chance.

I am up to 549 general audience Anime currently on my hard drives. Some are few episode OVA (Original Video Animation), some are Season(s), and some are short or full length Movies.

Dio, can that list handle over 500 titles? I have more than that on my hard drive now and I am sure I have watched more than are there when I used to burn DVDs and watch (gasp) ones I had bought.

I am working on getting every Anime I can find in computer file form. I have 2 sets of 3 ea 10 TB hard drives for 27.2TB formatted. There is 11.9TB free right now.

I have 8 releases under nyaa.si right now as BobP. One is a dvdrip and the rest are rereleases recompiled with the best video/audio/subs I could find or fixes to other releases. Since I am disabled, I only work on mainly older orphans or something I had already tweaked for me.

My physical Anime collection fills a whole wall 3/4 of the way up. 8'()

Assuming that isn't a rhetorical question then,to answer it, yes MyAnimeList can handle all the titles you can throw at it assuming they're in their database. My MAL currently has 341 anime on it and I know there's *many* with way more than me.

It was more of an internal debate for me. Because I often have to rewatch Anime due to the memory deficits caused by Fibromyalgia, age, and God knows what else, MAL may be a good memory enhancer for me as well as a reference I can point others to.

That way I might be able to more easily watch anime I have not seen yet. Speaking of which, I am currently in the middle of Anime Gataris which is about a high school Anime club. So in a way it is an Anime self reference with current situations.

So I guess I will put MAL on my to do list. It might be easier to just point to for bragging rights once I get far enough. But I may have to rewatch tons of Anime so I can reference them properly.

Now if I can only find a way to properly document my "releases" since I am not a part of a Fansubber or Ripper group...
