Re: AP 607 - Bad Dads (No Tuckers)

While there are a lot of well-known bad dads I'm gonna go for a few more obscure ones. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fshounen.chungyc.org%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2009%2F11%2Fominous-kinzo-512x289.jpg&f=1 Ushiromiya Kinzou from Umineko no Naku Koro ni is a smörgåsbord of dysfunction...

Re: AP 606 - Best Dad's

All Might might not technically be anyone's dad, but he acts as a mentor and father figure for Deku (And later Bakugo as well) and is genuinely devoted to their growing up and developing into proper heroes. In a series that has one of the worst dads it's refreshing to also have someone like All Migh...

Re: AP 602 - Worst Mums

I WOULD mention the mum from Hanasaku Iroha, but you've already hit that one. There's Ragyo from Kill la Kill who's totally insane and uses her own daughter as a guinea pig for the weird... clothing... aliens she's allied herself with. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fv...

Re: AP 593 - Gateways for Others

Hmm, good question. Anime tends to have really out-there elements and plotlines, so you'd probably want to go for something a bit more grounded and down to earth. So not, say, Kill la Kill or Jojo. I actually got a normie friend into anime a while back and we started out with Black Lagoon. It's a cr...

Re: AP 592 - WTF Anime

Probably THAT scene in Made in Abyss. The one in episode 10. You know it if you've watched the show. Did not expect something like that to happen. Then you've got plenty of shows that are WTF moments in and of themselves, like Paranoia Agent and Serial Experiments Lain. Anime is very, very good at d...

Re: AP 588 - CG Shows

I don't mind CG more than I mind regular animation. In the end it's all about quality, and if the quality is good (CG or not) then I appreciate it, if the quality is bad (CG or not) then I don't. Not entirely getting why some people have this instant aversion to CG, regardless of quality. Yes, there...

Re: AP 586 - Winter 2018/19

I wasn't feeling in a watch-y mood so I just picked the ones I've heard people say good things about. So Shield Hero, The Promised Neverland and Boogiepop. I'm also continuing to watch Index 3 from the autumn season, though that one's more mindless spectacle than quality show. Shield Hero looks real...

Re: AP 582 - Where do you get it?

I've been subscribed to Crunchyroll since late 2016 and use it almost exclusively as my one source for currently airing shows (as well as for some older shows). I also tend to pick up three or so series per year on bluray from a certain swedish nerdy bookstore that I'm sure any swedish anime fan wil...

Re: AP 580 - Christmas

First thing that comes to mind is the christmas arc of Toradora... which is neither jolly nor festive. It's the darkest and most melodramatic the series ever gets. At least it ends on a pretty happy and heartwarming note. The series overall might feel pretty generic nowadays, but the christmas arc s...

Re: AP 578 - Eateries

The Bathhouse from Spirited Away is an absolute must. Not only does the food look amazing, but you can go soak in a hot bath afterward finishing your meal. As long as you don't anger one of the spirits or the bathhouse mistress you're set for the meal of a lifetime. https://proxy.duckduckgo.com/iu/?...
