this shit is for kids man, and its not even funny either
You're supposed to watch the movies.
Are the movies better than the series? Normally I’d say that anime tie in movies are pretty shit compared to the series they’re based on.
Some, like 9 and 10 are considered masterpieces in Japan. My favourite is 22.
>which of the >1000 episodes are worth watching? All of them
Honestly, the whole first season is great. I've made it up to the 30s and all the episodes have been good so far. Hara's films from the early 00s are amazing as well, and you can watch them without any knowledge of the series as well.
You probably needed to be alive when the episodes were made for the jokes to be relevant. I will admit that I learned about Shin Chan from the English dub that aired on G4 TV about 15 years ago.
All of the jokes were localized and mocked the GW Bush administration. Sort of like how MXC is full of period references. It was hilarious at the time. I recently rewatched it with my 13 year old and she didn’t get it.
I am sure the Japanese is even harder to find humorous since it will be full of anachronistic references as well.
You watch 1 episode each day Retard
This is great, thanks.
Imagine some Japanese westaboo saying this about The Simpsons. lmao
The movies are the shit, the anime has more or less slice of life plots but the movies go as wild as they can
>All of the jokes were localized and mocked the GW Bush administration I refuse to believe this is real.
I see why Shin Chan did way better in other countries
i've watched it dubbed in both catalan and spanish, none of the jokes reference any current or national events lulz
>Thread about one of the best anime series ever >Almost no post Depressing
A lot of oldfags went out for a hike
Bah, oldfags are idealized. LuckyStar, Elfen Lied, Rozen Maiden... are disappointing
>LuckyStar Generational in joke. You had to be there
I've been watching the original and I've had no issue following anything, the 92 economic crisis gets mentioned once or twice and other than that it is just typical Japanese cultural references.
>it was a joke I hope so
It's one of those series I think you'd probably enjoy watching daily or every other day.
