have you found an anime live action movie that's worthwhile?  saying that 'they usually all suck' implies that there are a few gems!

 

the recent ruruoni kenshin movie was dope, but I cannot recall any others that I considered good.

 

any you'd recommend?

^ I'm just watching it cuz it's shaft and the music is pretty cool. If it weren't for that I prob would have already dropped because the plot has no direction and it's based on vocaloid shit. Just watch the monogatari series if you like the animation style and u want an actual plot.

Just started watching JoJo and it's pretty fun so far, trying to finish the whole season 1 asap so I can actively watch this season when it airs.

Finished the first season and caught up on s2. The whole stand concept is a lot cooler than the ripple but I wish that Jotaro would have got the power of both a ripple and a stand, kinda dissapointed to see the ripple power getting passed down in the family but ending w/ Joseph as the last user.

that's great advice for people who enjoy passable plots that have been choked by pornographic drivel

I was comparing it to city actors because they're done by the same studio and have similar art styles.The plot isn't really outstanding but at least it's cohesive because it's got better source material since it was based on actual novels instead of music videos. Wouldn't really call it pornographic but ecchi is fine.

i should have mentioned that i've never heard of mekakucity actors until now and didn't intend to defend it

Books are in Japanese and never got translated, my JP sucks so I never bothered. I heard the show is pretty accurate to the novels tho.

As far as I remember it's primarily Nisemonogatari that suffers from this, which is somewhat justified by that season primarily dealing with sexuality. I can't remember if the other seasons are as heavy with the fanservice, I watched them a while ago.

 

Any thoughts on Sidonia no Kishi? I'm a huge fan of Blame! and this seems like Tsutomu Nihei's attempt at a more mainstream series, but I honestly think he kind of sucks at it. Falling into a lot of shounen tropes. The world is really cool though.

Why is "I am a Hero" not finished? :(... So many cool references in that manga.

Anyone got any other recs that fall in the same vein? I'm a sucker for survival/horror

i think it's p good. have to catch up on manga but i've seen the first couple of episodes of the anime. it's the most palatable for a wider audience but it still feels very nihei to me. i think the use of all the shonen mecha tropes is fine and never feels lackluster to me

Hunter x Hunter manga started up again a few weeks ago.  Hopefully he's not going on another 2 year hiatus any time soon.

anyone reading dead dead demons dededededestruction? 

 

considering dropping it even after the first few chapters, although it's an interesting change of pace from inio asano's other works, it just doesn't "fill the void half full" for me, y'know? maybe picking it up again later once it gets more into it.

 

probably safe to assume that this is what asano wants to try out with manga, after writing so long with slice-of-life-esque stories. i feel it's just a bit too overwhelming? or it's just the effect that he wants to achieve to start off something?

the manga transforms from an atmospheric space sci fi mecha to a harem romcom. that's what I was getting at with 'shonen tropes.' I thought it was a huge letdown honestly... :(
