Hi, I asked Codexx to apply this CSS that you can see in effort to bring our /a/ back to life. However, this board also needs banners of which we don't have none yet, so if you got any post 'em here so the BO can see them (or I can inform him about them) and add them. thoughts on the new CSS? Please help me with some activity, anything ¬¬

Are we allowed to have a tokusatsu thread here? It's live action but still japanese media.

Tokusatsu General Thread Anonymous 09/14/2022 (Wed) 23:48:01 No. 1015 [Reply] [Last]
Since we have no /m/, this is the next best thing. Discuss all things tokusatsu past & present. The latest Kamen Rider entry, Kamen Rider Geats, has just started. Feel free to as how to get into the franchise as well as the best sub options available.

Post all small questions here that do not warrant their own thread. I am reading Dagashi Kashi, but a complete torrent for all the chapters does not seem to exist; furthermore, Emblem scans has only stranslated up to c162 so far. Does anyone have an archive of the manga?

RWBY Ice Queendom is a new anime set for release in the summer of 2022 and produced by Studio SHAFT in Japan. A genuine RWBY anime. It's here, let it stay don't relegate to /co/ or elsewhere. Monty's dream has moved to Japan as an anime and will keep moving forward! https://youtu.be/tjmBDfulaGk

I think I will stick to the R34 RWBY stuff, it's way better than this.
The RWBY anime volume is almost done. It hasn't been that bad. I've enjoyed it more than the recent Rooster Teeth RWBY volumes. I wonder if any more RWBY animes will be made.
It's been fun. I hope there will be a RWBY anime volume 2. Keep moving forward!

Mistakes in English Manga Releases Anonymous 04/22/2021 (Thu) 22:50:45 No. 392 [Reply]
This is mostly just for my own archival purposes but if anyone else has found mistakes in manga volumes they've bought, in english, then feel free to drop them. What I got range from typos to missing letters to printing errors. First two are from Demon Slayer. The third is from The Promised Neverland. The fourth is Levius/est & the fifth one is from Sekiro Side Story: Hanbei the Undying. Speaking of that last one, the error is that the woman they refer to is the boy's mother. Not his sister.

Now with those out of the way, don't read The Seven Deadly Sins. Holy shit there's so many problems. Grammar mistakes, random capitalization, & arguably just weird translation choices. All from volumes in their 7th-9th printings. Buy the volumes at your own risk but keep in mind of all these mistakes.

No Berserk thread here? Time to fix that. R.I.P., Kentaro Miura. Kouji Mori took over the manga since Miura's passing because he was a personal friend of his, and he knows the script. I hope he won't screw it up. What do you guys think so far? The latest chapter is currently 367. The next one is scheduled for August 12. These recent chapters made me hate that asshole Griffith even more. I look forward to the next one, but I also kind of dread it. Anyway, feel free to discuss all things Berserk ITT. Morda is the best girl, by the way.

>>960 It's not Griffith breaking character. Griffith is a manipulative control freak & always has been. Guts daring to leave him when he sees him as his most valuable warrior, the closest to his equal, & possibly being in love with him drove Griffith crazy. On top of actually losing to him. It's what drove him to impulsively thrust himself onto the princess. For a sense of comfort in his mental turmoil but also to further his plans of becoming the princess's love so he can climb the social ladder. Problem was this got him caught & thrown in the dungeon by the incestuous mad king.

>>994 Yeah the manga is honestly not bad if you enjoy Shounen. Good art and the story progression is decent. Doesn't go in meandering arcs like most stuff, ends cleanly in Egypt bringing everything full circle nicely. Not my favorite but it's definitely good.

Legend of Galactic Heroes: My conquest is the sea of stars Anonymous 11/21/2021 (Sun) 06:49:28 No. 653 [Reply]
First off God damn that's a long subtitle, as ridiculously long a title to have to begin with they managed to top even that. Seriously what a fucking mouthful. So this anime is shilled a lot, and yesterday I finally was convinced to try it out. I began with the prequel movie "My conquest is the sea of stars", and I have serious issues with the last ten minutes, and nowhere else more appropriate to air them. There's a giant fleet engagement with about a million vessels taking part, as the democratic "good guys" are getting creamed they come up with a move to win. Three guys take a ship and kick everyone else off (if these ships don't need gunners to fire the guns, engineers to oversee the powerplant, marines for boarding actions, or even crewman to man radar. Then why the hell are these ships manned at all?) Then fly up to the enemy commander, come along side and sit there. The entire warzone goes quiet. Everyone to afraid to fire a single shot, EVEN MILLIONS OF KILOMETRES AWAY, for fear the commanders vessel might be struck. The "good guys" (who were getting crushed) use this confusion to sail away in peace, leaving this single vessel with three crewman alone behind enemy lines. Then that ship leaves too. That was the summary and already I bet many can see the obvious issues with this plot. 1. Coming alongside another vessel does indeed mean you probably won't be targeted by canon fire, sure, BUT that simply means you are commiting a boarding action. Pistols and sabers time. So why doesnt the "imperialistic" "badguy" commander sound repel boarders and? Or when it's clear he isn't being boarded, BOARD THE OTHER SHIP. 2. why the fuck would you let the enemy go? 3. Why would a ship fighting off boarders (which has been a common occurence for so long as naval vessels have existed I.E. all of western history) silence not just his own side, but the other side as well? 4. In a battlespace billions of kilometres wide why would anyone else give a shit? 5. Why let the enemy suicide vessel go? Why would noone take a potshot after it left the side of the commanders ship? 6. Is the entire series this monumentally retarded? Did the author even look into naval tactics from any century? 7. Will it get better? I mean what kinda ship doesn't have marines on board? How is there no procedure for dealing with a close in enemy? Traditionally you board it, kill the crew, and then cut away boarding ropes, wait til you are out of range of it exploding, and then sink the bastard. Or you take control of the enemy vessel, crew it, and keep fighting now with another ship in your flotilla.

Straight in there with the overt anti-white shit, this one. Second time around my nose got too sensitive for the stench & I dropped it.

>>898 >overt anti-white shit Where? At any rate, I personally rooted for the Goldenbaum dynasty. Doesn't matter anyway; it's not like there are any nignogs in the empire for Reinhard (or his heirs) to push for diversity, and Reinhard has never interacted significantly with any non-white to care.

Just a simple thread for people wanting a certain type of show or manga series being suggested for others to try out or ask question if there are certain series with a bunch of requirements met. I'll Start first, are there any anime or manga series with a MILF protagonist you'd recommend for anyone? Anything where the mother's a protagonist really or at the least an older female.

>>869 Looks pretty good, will check out
>>903 >yokoyama mitsuteru Man of culture. His Three Kingdoms adaptation is a must read. I also would recommend Mizuki Shigeru's biography/historical works like Showa: A History of Japan (my current reading). Please check GeGeGe no Kitaro too, got a creative and fun character that never fails to make me smile. Mizuki was probably one of the most wholesome cartoonists ever, he sure didn't feel old even as a 95yo.
>>869 Ey that was pretty good, great art, good story, and good pacing, 8/10. Spoilered for plot

Speculation: Naruto killed After-Image Techniques Anonymous 06/05/2022 (Sun) 10:50:51 No. 853 [Reply]
In the classic '90s beat 'em up videogame series "Streets of Rage," the second and third entries into the series, Streets of Rage 2 and Streets of Rage 3, feature a ninja-type enemy. Whilst executing one of its frustratingly effective evasive manoeuvres, the ninja, whilst moving away and leaving behind a trail of after-images whilst doing so, can be audibly heard saying "Ninpo: Kage-bunshin no Jutsu" i.e. Ninja Art: Shadow Clone Technique. While this videogame is indeed a Japanese videogame, and it was indeed targeted at the presumably youthful male Japanese demographic, a demographic that may have also consumed manga and anime, and may have indeed been influenced by the manga and anime available at the time, it is nonetheless, a mere videogame and not a Japanese anime or manga. The illusory/genjutsu form of the shadow clone technique in Naruto, as demonstrated by Sakura, generates after-images but that disappears later on in the show as nobody uses the technique. In One Piece, the Soru technique originally generated after-images, but I believe that was only used on occasion, and even then, only at the time of its introduction. I think after-images are still seen in DBZ even as late as the Cell-Saga. IIRC, they appear in Goku's fight with Cell however, that part of DBZ was done entirely in the '90s. I cannot remember what it was but I recall seeing a different anime where a character used shadow clones and they were indeed of the Naruto-variant and not of the after-image variant but I do not recall what it was. I do recall my reaction though: "Naruto changed the Shadow-Clone technique." It may be unfounded but this is my suspicion: that after Naruto, not only did the traditional shadow-clone technique get abandoned in favour of Naruto's version, but after-images were abandoned entirely and that Naruto is responsible for this shift. I know you guys have consumed more anime than me, both 90s and 00s, so tell me, what are your thoughts on this speculation of mine?
Thinking about it, answering this speculation requires not only being an Anime Historian of sorts, but also someone who pays attention to the presence of the Ninja in Japanese culture, particularly in Otaku Media. This is perhaps too niche to be answerable and would require independent research on my own part.
>>854 I think another place to look at would be the Pokemon anime. I have very, very vague memories, but I think they kept using after-image illusions well until the season that had Treeko in it. Then again I only watched until then.
