So, I'm in the middle of watching Layzner and Everyone just keeps fucking dying, holy shit.

There's some great tactics in the battles and I like the way the mechs move in this. The weapon beams are stylish, but it gets a little distracting at times. What did you think of this? It's a brutal show so far and the visuals are nice.

In any case, what mecha have you been into lately? Let's have another mecha thread.

Kodoku no Gourmet

Sit down children, its dinner time!

I recently stumbled on a new favourite manga of mine. Its called Kodoku no Gourmet and falls into the ultra niche "slice of life gourmet" sub genre. The most common example of this you probably know of is Wakako Zake. Which is nice but always lacking a thoughtfulness to it and comes off feeling a bit like an overlong 4koma at times.

Kodoku no Gourmet is a short 2 or 3 volume series by the recently deceased Tezuka award winning mangaka Jiro Taniguchi. The manga tells roughly the same story every chapter. A imports and exports businessman in this early 40's leaves work hungry. On his way to the nearest trainstation, hotel or taxi firm he stumbles on either a totally new and strange eatery or he revisits somewhere from his youth or college days and enjoys a meal.

Its a very relaxing manga, very little of the manga is spoken dialogue and is mostly the mc's internal dialogue as he comments on the area, the people and the food.

What i didn't know however is the manga is actually very popular in Japan and has a range of action figures by companies like figma or goodsmile and even has a live action television show which is best described as "Food Pornography" which currently is filming its EIGHTH season and has had multiple specials including repeat new year prime time shows in multiple prime time slots. Its apparently something of a cultural touchstone over there. It even gets regular doujins at comiket where people make thin books about the protagonist in the world of Dark Souls or Morrowind savouring their cooking. Apparently season 1 is available with english subs and is considered a 'prized relic' by its small but dedicated western fanbase who describe it as 'patrician in the extreme'.

Personally i really enjoy it. Its got all the comfort of things like Hakumei to Mikochi or Dungeon Meshi with the odd tinge of melancholy you would expect from Dead Dead Demons Dededestruction or western mumblecore like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless minds first act.

But its just a guy eating his fuckin' lunch.

I ended up buying the japanese manga volumes just to own even if i can't read them yet. Its rare i get so enamoured with such a simple premise but something about this really works for me and maybe it will for you so check it out. I'll post the first couple of chapters here.

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.

Is mecha dead as a genre?

Mecha has been struggling for almost a decade now. If it hasn't got the Gundam name on it then it doesn't have much of an audience. We were seeing 1, maybe 2 shows a season having mecha in them but even that is drying up or being sidelined. This season we have a series who's plot hook is mecha but the actual series is just a fag romance with the mecha pushed as far into the background as 5 seconds of bad CGI an episode can get.

FAG and Mazinger girls looks to be the final nail in the coffin for the genre from what I can tell. These series sell to the harem market and can have mass produced figures with head swaps and armor swaps to recycle the same design near infinitely. The last few seasons mecha series look to have been replaced by these, which is replacing the Build fighters/Danball senki market which was all that mecha had left.

Where does mecha go from here as a genre? Is it just a slump or did the increased cost of designing robots over just a harem cast kill it?

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!

2019 Summer Infinity Cup

GREETINGS /a/

The Infinity Cup is returning once again, and 8chan's boards will be fighting it out on the pitch to claim divegrass supremacy. As a board that has participated in the Cup at one point or another in its history, you are invited to the reveal stream for 2019 Summer edition of the Cup. On Saturday June 22nd, at 3 PM EDT/7 PM UTC, on cytu.be/r/8cup I'll be giving you guys an early look at the Cup's 5th edition, which will include revamped aesthetics, team stadiums and other quality of life improvements I've figured out how to do in PES 17. Hopefully this will get anons back on board with the Cup, considering it has struggled mightily since its 2nd incarnation.

So how is it going to go down? I'll be staging a couple of exhibition matches between teams using their rosters from the last Cup, and we'll shitpost our merry way through the stream. Once the stream ends, entries will be open for the Cup, and boards can start putting together/editing their rosters and kits. Entries will close in early July, the field will be determined, and the Group Draw will take place approximately a week before the Cup kicks off in August. I'm also hoping to possibly introduce managers for the Cup, although I'm still working out the details to keep this from devolving into a namefag dick measuring contest. I hope you all will tune in, and in case you aren't caught up on your board's history, I've provided some links below to get you caught up:

Cultural Receipt of Embellished Voices

I know that the Japanese don't speak like anime characters, but do they find anime voices as cringy to them as we find English dubs? The byword has always been that dubs suck, and it's usually true, but I have to wonder if that's all of it. There's a distinct attack to the cadence of Japanese line delivery, which I think has to do with the linguistic structure and syllabary. We can murmur and slur our words all day long in English, but if you speak unclearly in Japanese, you completely obfuscate the meaning. So there's a certain pop, a certain snap, to acted out lines. At self-aware risk of drawing comparisons to a certain review of a certain reboot of a certain cuhrayzee series, I think the best parallel the West has is Shakespearean stage acting. The way they pause between certain syllables and then over-enunciate the following ones to create a Jazz-like tense-and-release structure which is melodic and cathartic to listen to. In music the term is 'swing', where you break tempo in one direction and then break it in the opposite on the next measure to restore the balance. Anyone have any thoughts, insights, or suggestions to go fuck myself?

Also, Funimation is dubbing Nichijou.

To keep things interesting, tell us about what (unusual) genres you're into at the moment. After reading "Himitsu no akuma-chan", I wanted more series in the 'shounen'+'shounen ai' genre. The series 'Yugawara-kun wa Ooyamada(... )' scratches that certain itch, though, the series is pretty superficial. Anyways, manga thread.
