I’m wondering about something. Now I’m trying to find a new anime, really difficult as I’m looking for something in the same vein than Yuri Kuma Arashi, Mawaru Penguindrum and Kara no Kyoukai. So at some point tried the predecessor to Yuri and Mawaru, Revolutionary Princess Utena, and gosh that '90s style (plus 40 episodes, seriously), was not able to withstand.

But then I wonder, how Ghibli movies, with Castle in the Sky made in 1986, look way better than most of the anime during the '90s and beginning 2000s?


Movies are a bigger gamble, gotta go for broke

Also you don’t have the a weekly delivery date


Witch one would you recommend more?


Have not seen any of these, got a tl;dw?


I’ve heard Mawaru Penguindrum was good, but I haven’t quite gotten to it yet.


Both are good, but I would recommend Mawaru Penguindrum first as Yuri Kuma Arashi goes even further in their style and a newcomer will just backtrack pretty rapidly. If you have liked Madoka Magica and Kara no Kyoukai, those ones are good bets. Just be aware that the first half of Mawaru is kinda slow, not really, but you don,t see how they gonna make 12 (oups 24 in fact…) episodes of it, but there is always that je ne sais quoi that make you cling to it.


Gosh… how to begin…

Kara no Kyoukai:
Master piece. Strange supernatural psychological anime presented in an unchronological pattern that make you work, but is phenomenal. Great artwork. Music excellent. Can be pretty raw at to me moment (I’m thinking about one episode in peculiar)

Mawaru Penguindrum:
Complicated story about fate, revolve around siblings…

Yuri Kuma Arashi:
Symbolic discourse around lesbians


That’s my jam


Should have led with this


That reminds me… I’m almost done with Yuru Yuri season 3. Then no more yuru yuri :sob:


Oh and let’s not forget Mawaru Penguindrum allowed that to happen also :wink: (not in the actual anime however)


That video title



Oh I found the stream, but it’s only on HiDive so it Looks like I’ll be trying it out again.


or go look somewhere else, worth it :wink:


It’s too much of a pain to use “somewhere else”. I’ll just trade out my Funimation for a month. Plus they have an app now, so I want to see how that is. I see other anime I might be interested in too.


I was subbed to CR, Hulu (no ads), Anime Strike and Netflix.

Dropped Hulu, considering dropping Netflix now that I’ve seen all of Little Witch Academia.



So great!
