Ask here if you want to know something about anime that does not exist,
discuss your favoratie characters it has (or has not),
which of all the missing episodes/seasons you think is the best, and anything/everything ATDNE.
The only rule naturally is to be nice and polite :)

I suggest in this topic to have evening = autumn, night = summer, morning = spring and day = winter.

This will give it cosy feel of room where time goes backwards!!!

As I'm starting the topic I should probably write something myself. So here we go.

Anime that does not exist is really amazing! Don't you think? (Well guess you do if you are here! :D
I am fan for a long time and still can never get enough of it! p.s. Have a perfect weekend everyone

I think OP means Anime that hasn't been aired/released/ect.

Also: I'm hoping to see "One Week Friends", or something with a name like that

Anime that don't exist are tough to watch, but if you do, it feels like nothing you've ever experienced.
I remember seeing one, back in the day. I liked the opening and ending songs(both of them were called 4'33"). It had a really strong protag too.
It might only have had one season, but I'll never forget that beauty.

I guess you won't have to wait much longer since it airs in like a day or 2. Even though Crunchy hasn't added the 1st episode to their schedule yet, they have already licensed it for simulcast. xD

Anime that does not exist does not exist inherently because its lack of quality has lead fans of the original material to deny its existence.

If we're talking favorite source materials with nonexistant anime adaptions, I'd have to pick Tsukihime and Umineko No Naku Koro Ni.

Unless the term is meant more literally.

A Suikoden anime would be cool. I have seen the Opening 1, 2 and 3 from the games and I think an anime would have been wonderful and very popular considering how well made the OPs are.

My apologies for late reply, and for confusion - I was not hinting to any specific anime.

I meant anime that actually does not exist.

I am, too, wondering what it might be. It captivates me. Does such thing even exist?!

But your interpretations guys rule! Thanks for them, placing them first in list of

The species of anime that do not exist:

1. Anime so bad that it was ignored by everyone (including authors).
Or was it just not understood by contemporaries!? (including authors)

2. Anime that some great manga was not yet, or ever adopted into (for better or worse).

3. Anime, entire printing of which was instantly bought out and eaten by robo-aliens.
(ok, sorry, couldn't help it, now serious again)

4. Ideal anime.

Does not have weak points at all. Perfect, 100% good. At times you think it does not exist. And yet...

5. Anime that is too good.

Some really great anime at moments gets just too good. You think: ok, that's it! This show is too damn good. It probably does not exist, after all.

And, due to dangerously high - for the average-sized anime fan - amount of awesomeness, fact of its existence gets blocked out as part of fan's protection mechanism.

6. Illusory anime.

On the way from somewhere to elsewhere, you reminisce a great anime you recently watched. But you only sense an impression - of places, intonations, face expressions, colors. When you try to recall which one it is you realise you've never watched it. The impression was caused by the mix of your childhood memories with yesterday events + extra spoon of sugar in cup of coffee on lunch. Mind's games, like deja vu etc.

7. Fanternate reality.

When you "just say no" to some author's decision and edit plot/scenes in your mind a little Like: "with all due respect, director-sama, I cannot let this jerk date this girl just yet!" And go on memorizing your version at all key points. May be same as 4?... No...

What else do we know?

NobodyOfImportance describes watching it as unique experience. You can say that again!

But isn't it expensive! No matter how crazy are prices for brand new series, even that won't get you anime that does not exist.

If to compare "exists" with "does not exist", I think, as with subbed vs dubbed, it's a matter of taste, but has to be judged on case by case basis: some anime is perfect that exist. Other would better not :D

But jokes aside, what actually gets me in the works that do not exist. May be that thinking about such sends your mind on a trip by mental roller-coaster: you think of something crazy, but it does exist, so you get it to the next level, imagine that, but since you do, it exist somehow too, so you have to go beyond that and so on, and the feeling that "whatever weird thing you say, mine is million-millions times weirder!" (like in kids' arguments is exciting :)

Sorry for being late, again. I actually was out there trying to get dvd. No luck yet.

Have a great week everybody

I think he means an anime called "That Doesn't Exist"

Sounds very dark and edgy.
