Well, we are talking about the country which, at least allegedly, banned porn in which the girl isn't sufficiently busty, because apparently pedophiles?

Australia can handle dropbears and 10 inch long spiders, make a bank robber with a bucket on his head a national hero, and lose a war against the Emu, but god forbid someone see anime thighs!

If you don't want to pay for a vpn, you can access IP-blocked sites using Tor.

Tor would be rather awful for streaming and/or downloading large files, though.

I'm watching Net-juu no Susume, going in blind, I thought it might be low grade otaku fare but it's actually a very endearing romcom with some MMO related stuff.

That's a show I really liked. The social antics of the main heroine and hero are adorable, the inclusion of the actual best wingman in existence, tied together with a plausible MMO contrivance. I definitely wouldn't mind another season to see how everything fleshes out.

Though the show might be more famous now for the director being an anti-semite and Nazi Sympathizer, you wouldn't know that just from watching the show though.

They probably couldn't do another whole season, because the main plot threads are all resolved by the end of the show, and wikipedia says it's from only a 2-volume manga, so it's likely they adapted pretty much all the source material.

And for the last episode of the TV series I was waiting for

but instead got

So that's the level it got to, but it actually feels in character for both of them, so it works for the ending. That ending managed to be humorous but also touching and subtle, and it tells you what you need to know.

I'm in.


Also, I caught what I assume is an Easter egg in Read or Die episode 24.

It could be a coincidence, but...

Ok so it's not like, Hello Kitty gets in a big kitty robot, it's just literally Hello Kitty about to fistfight a gundam.

Yeah this sounds like a good thing. I'm in too.

Better than that, it's literally Hello Kitty gets transported into the Gundam 79 tv show and has to help Amuro Ray

I asked this question about this time four years ago and got some good answers. I'm looking for a decent anime of a quality on par with FMA:Brotherhood, Psychopass, or Baccano! (or decent non-anime, like Avatar: the Last Airbender). I don't care about anime qua-anime, I just like decent high concept TV series and I don't mind if they're animated. The sort of thing I'm looking for:

- Not too long (less than 80 episodes)
- An exploration of an intriguing idea or deep theme
- Multi-faceted characters
- A series-arc where things tie together (i.e. strong structure, minimal filler)
- No (or minimal) fan service

On Crunchyroll, I'm into Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba right now. Give that a go, though it may not pass your par for 'intriguing' or 'deep', those seem like debatable standards.

On Netflix, there's Devilman Crybaby. That one is... a lot more intense. It would definitely fulfill the second and third condition you laid out.

Yeah like, I don't even need subtitles. I'll just watch it like it is there, with no understanding aside from Hello Kitty is about to shrek that Char guy with her bare paws. Probably while set to Japanese disco.

Thanks, I'll check these out.
