    How Do You Live - the bucolic / horrifying world of Ghibli

    Saw Boy and the Heron yesterday (25 years after first seeing Totoro fwiw) and that is some movie. I am curious for your thoughts and interpretations, but this can also be a place to discuss Ghiblies in general.

    Yo ho ho, he took a bite of live action Gum Gum! Talking about Netflix's One Piece

    Netflix's live action adaptation of One Piece hit the streaming service today, and I just watched the first episode. Now, there has been a number of live action anime adaptations on Netflix already and pretty much none of them were based on series that were seemingly as adverse to live action as...

    The most macho badass hardcore brutal anime ever was adapted into a stage musical.

    Yeah, that's right. Freakin' Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, reimagined as a bunch of people in dog-ear headbands singing at each other. For anyone who isn't following me/thinks I'm joking with that title incidentally, no for real, make the time, find some good fan subs, the '80s anime series this is...

    Did you know Sailor Moon got a new dub without any weird edits?

    Smack me if I already made a thread for this, but recently-ish I randomly noticed that Sailor Moon was on Hulu. And furthermore, all of it, and further still, there is a new modern dub which doesn't make efforts to scrub away all the queerness and doesn't switch people's pronouns up. So I've...

    The Slayers Group Watch Thread

    Hi! I'm Octo! And my single favorite anime series, ever, is The Slayers. The whole darn thing, really (Try has some thematic problems, but it's fine). And I have been hankerin' to rewatch it, as it's been a while since the last time I did. Furthermore, Slayers is a moderately popular 90s anime...

    Digimon Bits and Bytes: A Thread About V-Pets and Related Hardware

    Recently, Serephine asked when I was gonna make a thread about all the weird Digimon stuff I find in pursuit of Digimon stuff I want. That's this thread! Mostly, it's going to be about Digimon V-Pets (which I think count as video games), but I'll also touch on other stuff and the console games...

    Gnosia; or, A Single-Player Mafia Game?!

    I finally caved to peer pressure from a chat group at work and got Gnosia and have been mainlining that since Thursday or so. It's a single-player Mafia game (or Werewolf, or Among Us, or however you identify "impostor deduction" games.) To sum up how it plays in an elevator pitch, it's kinda...

    Tonight I Will Play a Licensed Video Game of Your Choice

    Sonic the Hedgehog OVA soundtrack unofficially released after 24 years

    In 1996, anime maker Studio Pierrot produced a two-episode Sonic the Hedgehog OVA. It was released outside Japan in 1999, most likely to capitalize on the release of the Dreamcast game Sonic Adventure. The OVA is known for the song "Look-Alike," sung by Riyu Konaka, but no soundtrack or even a...

    The AMV thread: Feel the groove!

    Y'know what? I've kinda poked at this here and there back in the old Forums. But here, I'm gonna embrace my interests. Lets' talk Anime Music Videos! My first introduction to this vein of fandom was via Otakon, way back when they were still in State College, PA. Admittedly the results can...

    Long ago, when the earth was young, all peoples were united in peace and justice. And harmoniously they all came together to watch and praise twelve immaculate animes which were known throughout the world.

    The Anime Credits Thread - The OP-ED Section

    OK, dorks, post some anime openings and endings here. I will probably start a thread for general TV openings and endings too, but I want this gallery to be its own thing. Where to start. There is no bad Jojo opening or ending, but they never topped Great Days. Obviously, there's the...
