Light Novel/Web Novel/Visual Novel Thread

I've fallen behind in maintaining the LN/WN/VN thread since I've been reading Shield Hero's WN Bakarina. Enjoying anything good lately, /a/?

I've gotta eventually finish Spice & Wolf as well as the Slayers light novel, but I'm in a light novel slump these last few days as I play that stupid NTR game Evenicle. I started it and now I have to finish it. What are you reading? Find any gems among the normalfag trash? As for Shield Hero, I have to say the early chapters remind me more of a live action rather than an anime, while the later chapters are nice. It truly is a masterpiece in its own right, even if it's generic isekai trash. It manages to avoid the power creep which is a rare exception for Isekai. How's your own web novels coming along, anon? Made any progress?

/loli/ Anime Stream

A new thread for your regular loli broadcast!

I stream anime every Sunday at 12pm EST on Cytube. Come and join us!

There's usually a music pre-stream up an hour before the main stream. Feel free to contribute, or kick back and enjoy the tunes. People are also free to add other videos to watch after the stream. We've gotten all sorts of entertaining videos and documentaries in the past, which are always fun.

Apart from the stream, we have a daily rotation of anime to watch. From Monday to Saturday, we cycle through three different show for you to enjoy. Episodes are usually posted around 8:20am EST. Swing by and enjoy a new episode every day!

Boku No Hero: Going the Way of Bleach Edition

Old thread is dead, long live the new thread!

Is it just me or does it seem like Hori is putting in less and less effort with each chapter? Almost as if he is stalling for time, with each new chapter it feels like less and less actually happens story wise.

Tomo-chan wa Onna no Ko!

It's over. With this it* has now officially been cancelled.

Made in Abyss

Updates from Tsukushi on the status of the next chapter have been posted on his Twitter. Here's the shitty Google translation:

>Next chapter that I want you guys to read all at once will be twice longer than an usual one and posted in March. I'm sure it’s gonna be a good one but it’s kinda boring to write because almost all of the characters in the chapter is adult.

Speculation? I hope the double-length means that we will see the end of the flashback. If everyone is an adult like the tweet says though it leaves me confused though, because many of the characters in the flashback aren't quite adults.

Date A Live

The best worst series: Date A Live. Season 3 is out and I don't see a thread. I know there's really not a whole hell of a lot to discuss outside of the girls, but I think that's fine.

Sadpanda thread

It's been some time since the last one.

Post the doujins, tags, and artists you're reading, or that you hope to see scanned or translated.

There's a new interface and new features out. Do you love it? Hate it?

Personally I think the new look is much uglier, both in layout and in aesthetic style. Having the page count be visible from the search list is definitely something I've been wanting, but otherwise I prefer the old format (now called Minimal).

As for the tag watching and blacklisting, I'm apprehensive. As appealing as blacklisting sounds at first, I think I prefer the way the old Tag Flagging perk worked which I only bothered gathering the Hath to buy a month ago, just in time for it to be made redundant. It's not uncommon for only later entries in a series to have something undesirable, like NTR, or for different versions or translations of the same work to have different tags and only one to have the unwanted tag. The old Flagging style made that easily visible, whereas the new system just hides the ones with unwanted tags.

The industry absolutely needs a manga or anime about cute limbless girls doing cute limbless things.

Sund/a/y /jp/Cinema Club

Welcome to the Sund/a/y /jp/Cinema Club!

This thread is for discussion of all things related to Japanese films. Let's explore and discover this underrepresented part of Nip culture. What movies have you watched and which are your favorites? What directors or actors do you enjoy? Got anything on your backlog?

I'm hoping we could use this thread for 2D as well since there are so many good movies we never get to talk about because they don't warrant their own thread. If you've never watched a Japanese movie before and are hesitant to do so because you swore off 3D films for good - you're in for a treat. There is scenery and visuals of such beauty they will make your eyes water. There's the Jap humor, there's cool action scenes and there's endearing stories. Most importantly, it will compliment your anime and manga in giving you another piece of intimate understanding about something you love. All wrapped up in a clean package free of westernshit cancer.

In addition, every Sunday we have a movie stream. Two movies are shown with an intermission between them. The first is a lighter movie, usually a kaiju or tokusatsu movie. The second is a heavier movie, by directors like Kurosawa or Kitano. In general these are more serious but not always. The movies start at 6:00 EST. We've switched to using since it's a bit more reliable than streamchan and until stated otherwise the link will be the same. You will need to install a userscript on your browser in order for the movies to play if you haven't already.

So after finding out the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about the demons and the promise and everything else, Emma made a calculated, modest goal:

They're going to save the entire fucking planet and everyone in it. In just two years.

Also, it's apparently only been TWO WEEKS since they broke out of Grace Field. This isn't quite five-minutes-on-Namek timing, but goddamn, that was over 60 chapters ago. So maybe at this pace they can pull it off.

Go-Toubun no Hanayome

What happens when you take a bombshell redhead and multiply her times 5? You get this clusterfuck of a romcom where the main character is a dark-haired version of brotag from Persona 4 attempting to tutor a group of redhead quintuplets who are either massive bitches, literally retarded or both. Don't like any of this shit? Well episode 1 is here and TMS has ripened some assholes to give us yet another Jitsu Wa catastrophe so prepare for the biggest clusterfuck of the season next to Domestic na Kanojo.

Ojamajo Doremi

We should talk about Ojamajo Doremi because it's a very good show, some new people need to watch it, and there are rumors of the novels being animated soon.

Honestly I don't mind if they make the novels into cartoons, I haven't read them but I will eventually, but instead of that I'd prefer to see a new anime series in the Doremi universe whether or not the OG Ojamajo are the protagonists.

Majimoji Rurumo: Kanketsu-hen OVA July 2019

>The November 2018 issue of Shounen Sirius announced on Wednesday that an OVA for Wataru Watanabe's Majimoji Rurumo manga series is in production. The new episode will be bundled with the ninth limited edition volume of Majimoji Rurumo: Houkago no Mahou Chuugakusei manga on July 9, 2019.

>Titled "Majimoji Rurumo: Kanketsu-hen," the OVA will be based on the Majimoji Rurumo: Makai-hen manga, and serve as a sequel to the TV anime. The main staff and cast will reprise their roles, with Watanabe in charge of supervising the script.

>Watanabe launched the comedy fantasy manga in 2007 prior to serializing Yowamushi Pedal. The first manga in the series ended with seven volumes in 2011, which was followed the four-volume Makai-hen sequel published between 2011-2013. Majimoji Rurumo: Houkago no Mahou Chuugakusei, the latest installment, began in Shounen Sirius in June 2013. Kodansha will publish the eighth compiled volume on October 9.

I am very happy. I really loved the MajiMoji Rurumo anime and was worried it wouldn't get anything akin to a S2 due to it's poor sales in Japan.

Old thread is way past bump limit.

Check in with your waifu. How has your love for your waifu grown recently? What is your preferred method of headpatting your waifu? Does she like a rough head fluffing, or a gentle caress of the palm? Do you brush the whole length of her hair, or localize it behind the ear or atop her head? Is your waifu more of a headpat receiver or a headpat giver? What does your waifu's hair smell like?

Anime Club III

We're bringing it back!

If you don't know what this is, the Anime Club was founded in 2015 as a way for us to all watch an anime together as if it was airing once a week in order to produce OC and experience what watching it with /a/ would have been like.

Now, the Anime Club has become something to resurrect every once in a while as a rare event, and each time it has been organized by someone else and in different ways. I aim to retain this tradition with ACIII, so this time around, I'm organizing it like this:

Yes, there will be a cytube stream. I know this goes against the original idea of us all watching it separately so we can produce OC, but worry not. I will be posting a DDL for each episode every week. Those who cannot make the time are encouraged to utilize this DDL to watch it on their own. Those who do make it are also encouraged to do the same and produce OC with it.

>When does it air?

Wednesday at 5PM PST. That is all. No split days for different shows, no twice a week. It's Wednesday at 5PM PST. This will hopefully remove all confusion. The only problem with this time is that it conflicts with the rare Waifu Wednesday r/a/dio stream, but it's the only time I'm able to host it every week, so I'm locking it in. This won't always be the case forever, however, which takes me to my next revision:

After my set of streams is over, if things go smoothly, I will appoint a successor the ability to stream the Anime Club cytube and let them organize Anime Club IV however they wish, and for whenever they wish. They are able to just not use the cytube at all if they don't want to.

Let me know if I get something in this part wrong, I know I'm missing some things.

Amateur character designer thread

Since we can't draw at least we can design right? Bonus points for making a backstory. Here is mine:

>Born with a cleft mouth in a small rural village

>Has severe breathing problems and is about to develop deafness

>The only doctor in town who delivered her had to make a split decision to save her life

>Decided to readjust her mouth and patch her with her mothers thigh tissue

>Doctor was 70 and had shaky hands so there were some mistakes in the procedure

>Later on in life she decides to become a nurse in order to save kids who like her could have died before her life began


Peace, friends.
