The Weeb topic

It has resulted in anime moving further and further away from the interests of normal people, and more and more towards pandering to basement-dwelling masturbation addicts. There are a few shows that are still being made for a well-adjusted audience, but the vast majority is repulsive on a physical level.

Its even worse when something actually fantastic is adapted and then has a bunch of pandering to degenerates forced into it, degrading the product as a whole. I’m still mad at what whitefox did to Steins;Gate with the anime, taking a story that literally made fun of this type of audience and then pandering to them with suggestive gags and dialogue, blatant ass and boob shots and taking an entire character and reducing him to “XD FUNNY TRAP” (When the character canonically got groomed might I add).
There are still some good animes being made, but for quality stuff you’d be better off reading Manga, Light Novels and Visual Novels these days.

The Weeb topic

Thought it’d be interesting to see some opinions on contemporary Japanese “Otaku” media (anime, manga, visual novels, light novels, tokusatsu movies, etc) from a site where I don’t see it often talked about
Personally my favorites would be:

Steins;Gate (Visual Novel)
Cowboy Bebop (Anime)
Neon Genesis Evangelion (Anime)
Youjo Senki (Anime)
Spice And Wolf (Anime)
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure (Manga, though I like the anime adaptation of Part 2 and 4 better than the manga, the manga is better as a whole)

I will also say, if you don’t recognize the top three, you’re lucky enough to experience them with 0 spoilers. And considering they’re some of my favorite media period even while being lightly spoiled, you’re in for a treat if you ever do watch them.

How do you deal with using proper rips of files from a dvd/blu-ray in a video editor?

I’ve been thinking of making a fan edit of a show, and I was curious how I would go about using actual ripped video and audio from a Blu-ray. I used to make some pretty poor quality fan edits of movies I like when I was like 15 using YIFY rips in Sony Vegas. What I’m thinking of doing now is a lot more serious of a attempt to really fix a pretty poor adaptation and there’s a bunch of visual edits I need to make for that. So I need some advice on what programs I should use for ripping the Blu-Rays and actually making the edit. I own Sony Vegas, but I’m not sure how good it is for this purpose. I’m all ears for any advice you guys have.

The lost Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood movie released in 2007

I am not sure if i am posting this in the correct place, but I havent seen anything on this here and I thought it was worth making a thread about.

Quick rundown: In 2007 there released a movie adaptation of the first arc of the manga Jojo no Kimyou no Bouken (known as Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure in the west) this movie was done by the same people who did the OVAs released in 1993 and 2000. It only ever released in theaters in Japan and was never released on home video.
I was curious, considering it did in fact air in theaters, if its possible for there still to be prints of it floating around tucked away somewhere? Considering tracking down prints of films seems to be this site’s specialty, I was wondering how many are interested in this search over here.

Here is some material relating to the film:
