opm is fucking gay as shit

Naruto

Naruto isn't good either, but at least it tries to tell an original story and its characters don't look like this


Who also looks like this



that's better but still not all that cool or interesting. it's bald superman in dumber colours.
Visually he's not supposed to look cool or intresting


His suit is plain, but it works because warm colors convey strength more than cool colors, like Superman's blue suit. It's probably the only thing in OPM that goes for substance over style, design-wise.

mustard yellow really doesn't scream "strength" to me
Have you ever eaten some high quality mustard straight?

Oh what am I saying, of course you haven't.

Mustard is for gypsies and the mentally retarded.
>a fucking leaf

I gave Akira another shot; I like it a little bit more now.

The first time I watched it, I may have been a little bit of a hardass. I didn't pay as much attention to things like source material when I started this thread, and I try to acknowledge it more now. For example: I criticized it for treading on familiar territory, but that was a little unfair, given that it's actually based on a story from 1982. That would actually make this film a bit of a forerunner of its themes and subject matters—and even if you could find older stuff, I'd be hard-pressed to argue that the film doesn't explore its themes very well.

I've also come to appreciate its stylish aesthetic, even if it's approached borderline meme-status over the years.

And that transformation scene, though. Good shit.

YouTube

I'm glad to bump this up from a 5/10 to a 6/10. That puts it in my top 5, eliminating Death Note.

Very recommendable, but try to watch the French dub if you can.

Yeah, but it's hard not to be superior to the Japanese when it comes to voice acting (or anything).

All Japanese people are actually born with a mutation that prevents them from being good voice actors, especially if they're speaking in their native language. You can look it up.

And yet they're still not as bad at that as they are at programming hitboxes.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

He's already recommending people to watch anime in languages other than English. On his way to being a Grade S+ Weeb smh
