  • I think anime has become one of the more active niche interest communities on lemmy. The most active general anime community is !anime@ani.social (shameless plug).

    In general, myself and some of the other more active posters have been migrating and encouraging other related communities to be located on the ani.social instance. Part of the reason behind that is that it lets users that just really don’t want to see any anime content (see this thread) simply block the instance and move on.

    I know all about anime hot takes though. I have previously professed to hating Clannad so much I couldn’t watch past the first couple of episodes.

  • Where the NSFW line is drawn varies depending on the moderator and community. If there are communities that are either not moderated actively enough or draw that line too far to one side for your taste, then don’t subscribe or block those communities. Those tools exist there for a reason.

    I would not consider the post you have linked to as NSFW. I also think that the NSFW tag has evolved over time, so perhaps my definition of NSFW just doesn’t line up with what today’s standard should be. There are plenty of anime characters in very popular shows that have a character design similar to that. There are big billboards of them some places to promote the show. Just because it might be NSFW in your work environment/region, does not mean it is everywhere.

  • I use Sonarr, but it does mess up sometimes for shows even when you mark it as an anime to use absolute numbering. It most often happens with older shows that have lots of OVAs that are sometimes listed as episodes and sometimes listed as specials, depending on the database. So, if you are having Sonarr manage your downloads, then it can grab the wrong episode if its database (I think TVDB) and the release (usually using MAL numbering) disagree.

    This community used to be much more active, but there was a large exodus of the most active users after some far-reaching admin interventions (like this one) that saw a mod get removed from this community and the episode discussion bot unable to post here any longer. A lot of the activity has moved to a different instance/community. The reason people aren’t linking it directly is because admins have previously removed any comments/posts that link to it (including over two months of the pinned weekly discussion threads). It shows up on lemmy community browsers like lemmy-explorer though.

  • I’ll repost what I said in another thread. Like OP, I am glad that this is getting made. It is not something you typically see in anime/manga and a diversity of options in media is a great thing.

    I had read a portion of the manga a while back. I didn’t think this manga provided anything novel enough to keep my interest, but for a certain segment of the population, the art was exactly what they are looking for. So, if you are a big fan of the teaser visual, expect basically an anime with fan service about women that look like that.

    This series is like the anti-How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift. It revolves around an elf that finds human food, specifically french fries, so delicious that she just can’t stop eating them and, despite the male lead’s best efforts, is unable to lose weight. There is a veritable smorgasbord of female characters built similarly to the elf from the visual in this series in what is likely the highest average BMI harem in manga. I call it a harem, but in what I read at least, there aren’t really any romance elements, more just friendship, slice of life, and nutritional counseling.
