Why do people constantly call the saga of Tanya Mangaka a communist? just stumbled upon the guy's feed and it's full of boomer takes, SDF shilling(this is the complete antithesis of the JCP), and anti-communist retweets.

On top of that, Riyoko Ikeda(The Rose of Versailles) who was a member of the Japanese communist party in her youth is now doing interviews with LDP and butt buddies with a senior member. The Riyoko one is far more shocking than the nazi anime girl

Anti-racism isn't synonymous with leftism but racism is reactionary and is used to justify capitalist exploitation so it can be tied to anti-communism very easily.

Lain was one a lot pointed at with leftist themes. Who remembers that insane digimon fiasco with him? His alt-right reveal was the biggest blow to lain pfps everywhere.


I think it's ironic when Japanese rightoids are homophobic or transphobic, when homophobia was basically forced by the west on Japan.


just like nick land lmao
honestly this whole thread demonstrates that media having 'leftist themes' is fucking meaningless


I think the far-right promises you the ability to be boring while also getting edgelord cred

what do you think about RWBY as an anime

But the homophobic Ruby meme made a lot of people aware of the show, that must be a good thing, right?


dang one ship can really do all that?


Catpiss has been baited ham-fistedly since Volume 6. The Ruby meme only came about in Volume 9. It was only this funny because of how tone deaf and bad the writing had become by that point.

Many such cases (KorrAsami, MaKorra, CatrAdora, StarCo, all the ships of the Voltron: Legendary Defender series, etc.)
They drove most of the plots and just killed the story, leading to retarded things happening.

Considering that Monty was a Touhou-fag and that Raven Branwen was clearly inspired partially by Reimu, I wonder if Yang's design is inspired by Yuugi? The brash, blonde oni with red eyes and a teasing grin fits them both.


I'm not trying to start anything or get into any kid of idpol argument.

I'm just wondering why so many anime, many of which never receives a release outside of Japan, and takes place in Japan, is filled with characters who are obviously not Japanese.

Picrel, with a redhaired green-eyed character and a blue-eyed blonde, in the anime, both are native Japanese. They also have big noses like Caucasians.

What's going on here?

1. the "normal" anime style is a mutation of disney, as another anon pointed out. Disney has always been popular in Japan, and it was a huge formative influence on manga and anime
2. said style is often drawn with only the vaguest possible shit given giving towards what XYZ ethnicity looks like IRL. To most japanese people, anime characters just look like stylized japanese, and when a character is a different ethnicity, boy howdy does it let you know


A lot of that is a holdover from the 90s/00s/early 10s. Back then most western animation was either family stuff or edgy sitcoms. As trashy as anime as a whole has always been, at the time, it was one of the few places where you actually occasionally saw animated movies and showed geared at adults that took themselves seriously. You didn't see a whole lot of western stuff doing the equivalent of something like Perfect Blue or Angel's Egg

That said, the situations has been changing as more mainstream western animation is exploring dramatic stories intended for older audiences. Probably the most famous example I can think of is stuff like "Love, Death and Robots"


>when a character is a different ethnicity, boy howdy does it let you know
It's still not necessarily exaggerated or even a difference in facial features. In the case of black people they just dye their skin nowadays and that's it (plus they may have darker/gray/albino hair color because black albinos look cool, no idea why black dudes don't dye their hair white). In the case of Americans their skin and facial features are exactly the same as non-moe/non-genki characters plus a weird obsession with the AMERICAN flag and AMERICA in general, like some American nationalist Republicans. They also tend to often be blonde for some reason, like they're Swedish or something.


What are you talking about? The Japs and the French are fucken CHADS. And a lot of American animation is also fantastic.

Granted, I don't look at Japan with rose-colored glasses or like Japanese corporate capitalism so…

Also, don't the chinlets uncritically worship the 50s too? They have such tendency towards fanaticism already, they are unable to engage any country or period critically if they love certain aspects of it.

Yes, I find his movies very commercial. There's nothing inherently wrong with that but when you combine it with his public persona I find it grating


Don't want to piss anyone off but I always considered Miyazaki's movies to be too much of what people call "comfy" and "chill." I don't like stuff like The Laid-Back Camp much. Maybe I'm too dense all the time and can't force myself to relax, can't help myself. That's the reason I don't watch much kodomomuke or shoujo or iyashikei or romcoms or slice-of-lifes, I'm just too much of a grumpy old man who is unable to enjoy nice things (yeah, I'm the opposite of an average anime enjoyer).

Princess Mononoke and Porco Rosso seem kinda interesting though.


>I find his movies very commercial
I didn't mean "commercial." I'm sure Mr. Miyazaki genuinely likes what he's doing. I'm just not that kind of person who's into the overall feel of his works, they're like Disney fairytales and I tend to shy away from fairytales and other softer stuff like that.


>I'm just too much of a grumpy old man who is unable to enjoy nice things
Same here.


To be honest, Porco and Mononoke are closer to what his movies are actually about than people on the internet really seem to realize.

Miyazaki has kind of become the Wes Anderson of anime - his style has been meme'd and caricatured by people who haven't really engaged his work and probably haven't even seen much of his stuff. Most people act like all of his movies are just wholesome, comfy slice of life - when really, only Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service are really consistenty like that.

Miyazaki's movies certainly have a pastoral vibe and have extended "cozy" sequences, but everyone forgets that those scenes are often followed by imagery of either mass destruction and violence or weird, fucked-up organic corruption. Everyone acts like Totoro is emblematic of the man's filmography, while forgetting that this is the same guy who made Porco Rosso, Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa, The Boy and the Heron and Princess Mononoke, all works that have either heavy themes, extended sequences of apocalyptic or unsettling imagery - hell, we're talking about the guy who got his start directing Lupin the Third

Miyazaki ain't no wholesome director. There's a real darkness in his work that the internet keeps whitewashing thanks to cinematically illiterate hipster-weebs

I want to live the peaceful and serene life of the girls on the Comic LO covers.
How do you even crank your hog after seeing this, I just feel an odd sense of nostalgic longing for a childhood that I never actually experienced.

>Still, the contrast between the covers and the content, wow. These covers do not fit the subject matter.

I don't know, don't they? You think lolicons look at little anime girls with hate generally? They look at them with longing and that's what these covers reflect.


Lolicon is a spectrum that ranges from wants to be the little girl to wants the little girl, sometimes both.


you can be respected as an SA survivor as long as you're nice and aren't too emotional and don't talk about it too much and get over it and aren't horny ever again and don't engage with kink and don't be too weird and don't be too traumatized and don't create art about it


>I don't know, don't they?
I meant "sexually explicit subject matter." Because those could've easily been covers of a very well-made shoujo mag.


Do your 20s right now.

If you don't, you will regret it in your 30s.

that reminds that the next animu I watch should be patlabor, I get the impression that its basically the anime DS9 in terms of being a show abt a crew of peacekeepers that is way more to the left than you think that premise would allow.


It's good.

The late 1830s, Engels (the male self-insert) is a literal angel sent by god to save the world. Marx is a lazy, sharp-tongued tsundere with pink hair that is always fighting with her friend, the energetic tomboy (with brown/orange hair) Willich. Feuerbach, the cool-headed and reliable big sister/teacher character (black, long hair) often gives them tutelage and advice. Around episode 8 it is discovered that Feuerbach is literally the antichrist and that she is the leader of the shadowy cabal that has been conspiring against the group (mostly because she is jealous of Marx and wants Engels for herself). Engels defeats her in an intense final battle, after which he rejects Willich, who had proposed him around episode 6 after the beach trip, and proposes to Marx - she accepts, and the anime ends as they finally kiss on the ferry to London.
Yes, all the young hegelians besides Engels have to be women.



>big sister
That implies they aren't all equal in their roles.

I suggest they be an adventurer guild of pretty girls in an isekai that are constantly bitching amongst each other and failing every mission because of that. Then Max Stirner comes along, makes a harem (including the tsundere Marx), defeats all the spooks and wins, the end.

Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

>Humanity has been driving away the Demon Lord's army for a long time by summoning "Heroes" once every 100 years. But one day, the Demon Lord's army devises a countermeasure to the Heroes: entrap and kill them when they're in a defenseless state straight after the summoning. To commemorate this historic fear, the Great Demon Lord designated that year as "Year One of Entrapment Killing." The Heroes have all been slaughtered by the Demon Lord's forces ever since. Fast forward to today, Year 1000 of Entrapment Killing: the summoners are very worried. "What kind of Hero should we call? I don't know… Someone take this out of our hands!" And thus, they summoned Hiroyuki, creator of 2channel and the master at settling debates.
That's right Japan is still in the "owned with facts and logic" phase of online discourse.

this explains it all.

probably explains why 4chan is the way it is today too.


>Then, the contracts and money goes from LDP to Hotlink and then to the Hiroyuki-owned 2channel. Therefore, the sponsor of 2channel is, in reality, Japan’s Government Party LDP. Those disclosures were shocking because, according to its own official announcement, 2channel is a discussion board with no commercial interest. Administration is done by unpaid volunteers, and everybody was told that the highest value of the board was nothing but FREE SPEECH.
This is just hilarious.


remember when lowtax died and the remaining sa staff found out the site was making mad dosh while lowtax repeatedly said it barely made money?


Ah. Conservative anime. The worst kind of anime.

youre comparing a whole medium to hollywood lol


OP's image is from Waltz with Bashir which ends up being a very anti-Israeli movie. The whole movie is spent interviewing zionist warmongers and sucking them off, only to do a shocking about-face in the last 10 minutes where the cartoon filters come off and uncensored footage of their murders of Palestinian women and children is shown without mercy to the audience. surprised nobody ITT mentioned it. I watched it back when it came out and it totally broke the spell of MSM hypnosis on me w/r/t israel (tbf I barely knew anything about israel)
