What does /a/ think of Kuuchuu Buranko?
Started in 2010, still don't finish.
But was refreshing.
Source material is incredible.
Anime was alright.
One of my favorites
Only one book or whatever was translated right?
I still don't fucking get it. Why is Irabu able to change his age? Why don't the patients notice? Why do the shots give patients animal heads, and why can only Irabu and Mayumi see them? Why did all of the animation budget go into this scene?
I only watched the first episode so far... about three months ago looks good just never got back to it.
YUME DE KISS KISS KISS
KISS KISS KISS
The op and ed were top tier
It's kind of funny how looking back at it, /a/ didn't give way too much of a shit with the rotoscoping bits compared to Aku no Hana. Granted, the latter uses it a fuckton more than Trapeze, but the former had that kind of surrealist air about it that I didn't really give a shit when you had 3D Mayumi-chan on screen.
Nakamura anime are sure colorful. I loved it.
Irabu's appearance was a stylistic choice, in a somewhat contrary manner given his fluctuating age.
Each persona represented a different aspect of the psyche:
Ego, Id and Super Ego in that order.
This show used rotoscoping well that's the difference. I am kind of worried about the amount of shitposting Ping Pong might get next season being Yuasa and looking very much like rotoscoping in the post aku no hana age.
One of my favorite anime. Little Irabu is love.
I think most of those are only symbolic and don't really happen.
Though that scene in the last episode where the guy gets small was really weird. I think it's supposed to tell how Irabu used to be before he became a crazy age-changing doctor stuck in the cellar: he was overwhelmed by stress, and in the end he got used to it and the age changing is a coping mechanism. I don't know, make up some psychoanalytic shit, maybe it's not even supposed to make sense.
It's one of my favourite shows, I never really see it discussed on /a/ though. The only things that I've heard people say is that it's pretentious, and that's often when I bring it up. I never really understood how a show like this or Tatami Galaxy is 'pretentious.' I could understand something like Lain(even though I really like it as well) because there are a lot of scenes with no inherent meaning which are 2deep but this show? I don't really get it.
People liked rotoscoping in Trapeze because it was used creatively.
Some might say it was used creatively in Aku no Hana, but it was a bit creative in the way painting using your fingers is creative compared to painting with a paintbrush.
Has anyone read the only book that's translated?
Yup. Such a damn shame too
Great shit, did it not sell enough to translate more?
There was a lot of discussion while it was airing, but it died down after that. I don't think many people have watched this. Those who watched it while it aired probably left /a/ by now or something, considering so many people seem new to it...
I've never heard it called pretentious. That's a little silly given all the comedic elements present. In no way does it try to be '2 deep'...they even have little segments that explain the psychological bits so the audience can understand. Seems opposite of pretentious...
If it is creative or artistic it is pretentious regardless of the story and how straightforward it is, this is /a/.
pretty much this. just look at eva, TTG or madoka
I putted it on hold because I wasn't enjoying it. Maybe because I'm a psychiatrist and I had high expectations on this anime, I don't know exactly. But I agree with >>100851056, it was refreshing.

Really enjoyed it, I should watch it again...
I don't think it was pretentious, things were explained pretty well and it was kind of obvious what the bird heads were metaphors of.
Awesome show. very under-appreciated. I don't know why more people haven't watched this, it seems like the type of anime that would become popular among non-Japanese audiences.
Also dat Shangri-La 2010 remix HNNGGGG.
It just seemed like a normal Jdrama, except with lots of colors and a shapeshifting protagonist. It was an interesting concept but I didn't really find it that enjoyable.
>you will never be a cool psychiatrist like him and have crazy and interesting cases
Same here, watched the first half years ago and still have it on-hold.
Pretty unique though.
100% of people who liked Trapeze liked Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei.
And those people liked Kyousougiga.
/a/ is no longer an environment conducive to discussion. Everything that strays from the norm is shot down with buzzwords like that. My time on /a/ is coming to an end, this isn't a place that encourages freedom of thought anymore.
jokes on you, I didn't watch Kyousougiga
How similar are they?
I didn't like it, the art direction being way off from the norm turned me away.
It was done very creatively it's just it was done wrong in my eyes, it was an eye strain to marathon that what would take me 6 hours had to be broken up in 3 days. The colors were too much and the way they shot things left me wanting for each episode to be over.
The plots were not too entertaining yet I love how they all pieced together throughout the whole series and explained things well and addressed concerns with illnesses in a somewhat entertaining way.
The only reason why I did pick it up, and continued to watch to the very end was the shota. I couldn't get enough of him, which was a damn shame because his airtime was kept short.
Good enough for you? You're better off on some niche forum or even a smaller chan just don't expect too much discussion.
Stay away from AB and MAL, they're god-awful for discussing and ratings.
Other than that, /a/'s your last hope. Unless you think reddit or tumblr actually discusses anime better than us (which you'd be wrong).
Exception here, I liked Trapeze but couldn't get into TG. Maybe I should give it another chance.
I watched Trapeze in 2012 and it was the last anime I actually enjoyed enough to finish. Baseball episode was my favourite.
I'd be dead before I use tumblr or reddit. There really are no large but high quality places out there other than /a/, it seems. Its a shame it declined so much. I'll search the quieter and largely uninhabited nooks and crannies of the web.
