It's 2016 for Britbongs and Eirefags, dubs decides which is the first anime I watch for the new year. Doesn't matter how old it is.
Will Kyoani ever make an anime as high quality as K-On ever again?
>mfw i realise i haven't watched any anime since last year
same here, I planned on watching One Punch Man but I never got around to it despite wasting all my time browsing /a/ . Compared to last year where I used to watch 10+ series a seasons.. maybe I have finally outgrown anime
What would you do if you were One Punch Man for one day

What's the worst scanlation group/job you've ever seen?
Have you ever dropped a manga or anime because of how bad a job the group managing its release did or similar reasons?
Jaimimi's Box picking up a series is a valid reason to drop it as far as I'm concerned. Worst of all time would have to be KMS/Nekyou, they've mostly stopped releasing, thank God.
>What's the worst scanlation group/job you've ever seen?
bebe@xiu shoujo (pure scum), Kuu Scans (a tons of notes like: "lol, xD, so funny!") and saintseiya-zonev2 (a lot and I mean A LOT of watermarks).

I dropped Berserk in spanish because it was a disaster. Restart the serie from Dark Horse scans.
Does anyone feel like the main disappointment of OPM wasn't the animation, the direction, or the pacing itself, but the sound effects they used?
The main issue for me is that the sounds they use for the effects during fights or otherwise just aren't memorable or powerful. And I don't mean the voice acting or the soundtrack. For example, I feel like the punches lack "oomph", and a lot of the fights have sounds that really dampen the excitement in my opinion.
I won't say that you're wrong, OP, but I really didn't even pay a thought to the sound effects before you brought it up. Goes to show that people pay attention to different things when watching anime, I guess.
Yeah, for me, sound is a big part of the viewing experience, be it for anime, TV shows, or movies. There's a reason that sound direction and design is so important in places like Hollywood.
Basically, if they do it right, you don't notice it. You only really notice the sound if something goes wrong. In this case, due to experience, I notice specific details in regards to the sound, something that is usually niche for viewership but quite important.
So who is your first f/a/p dedicated to for 2016?
Hell with Nietzsche and Socrates. Gimme Manga.
The root of all philosophy is to ask 'why'.
So, what's /a/'s opinion of Mekakucity Actors?
Why do non blondes even exist? To make the blondes even better?
They're holdovers from an earlier stage of evolution.
