It's gonna fookin' merge this post I just know it... but it's new material damnit!
============

We somehow ended up discussing old-ass anime memes on the GFL/Gacha-Era discord I mod, and we came up with the following.

  • Gainax Pose (Nowadays seen in many anime/games outside of Gainax)
  • Nice boat.
  • White Devil Nanoha
  • Miya Can Can

Anyone remember some other old anime memes? :unsure: Some of these are really fun to google and relive the nostalgia lol.

Edit:



lol.

That sick Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba episode looked sick. :sweaty-blob: :sweaty-blob:
I'm so happy that ufotable got to adapt it, and that they put so much care into it.

You got that right. What an amazing episode! The art, not just the animation, is bonkers.

Vinland Saga episode 6 was incredible

They managed to create some real good, heart breaking drama with a little arc that only spanned this single episode.
I really felt sorry for that old woman when she realized vikings are about to slaughter her village




That said, the part about the language barrier was badly done when you're watching japanese with subs

Still think the manga is a lot better but the faithfulness of the shots and the intent behind them is amazingly respectful.

To be fair, it's a monthly serialization and the level of care and skill Makoto Yukimura can afford to pour into his drawings far exceeds what an anime production could ever hope to match.

Demon Slayer is big now. :partyblob:
I hope it's not the only anime he watched :p

I think that statement is a bit hyperbolic, but I'm really happy the series is blowing up like this.

The funny thing is that they should have called the sequels not Banner but Chest of the Stars. The amount of boob shots was something else.
Still a great series.

Thinking of the upcoming Vinland Saga episode just made me think of that one time the german public broadcasting service used tax money to produce an anime for the german audience.

The german OP:



That in return made me think of other old and odd anime productions i watched as a kid
