The finally of season 4 was actually pretty tight even if gentle arc was fucking dumb.

>mfw Dabi ends up causing no moral questioning on the part of the heroes because Deku's just gonna say some motivational bullshit, society as a whole doesn't believe him being Endeavor's son because Best Jeanist is still alive, Eri becomes a walking deus ex loli, most of the injured heroes recover within weeks, the students don't go through any character development because the sedative eventually worked so they have nothing to feel guilty about, and none of the interesting setups this arc get followed up
Hasn't happened yet but it's gonna, I can feel it.


Fucking basically. This whole villains vs Heroes shit is interesting and all but something feels off, mostly because despite the grim shit, it has a strange lack of resolution… which is why Tiger & Bunny are more interesting IMO.


Eri ruined the show just like Alluka did for hxh smfh


Too bad really, nice girl and all.

GT had very cool ideas and a great soundtrack but the execution was really shitty.

Goku being a kid was actually a neat gimmick and even a necessary one since he'd easily overpower everything otherwise, but why is he brown tho.
Pan however was an absolute waste of a character; we're stuck with her for the entire run and she never develops into anything at all, and only serves to waste time with her canned reactions. Also how come Gohan and Videl seemingly don't give a single shit about her after the first episode?

The planet of the week format in the first arc was weak not because it lacked epin fights but because it simply wasn't entertaining. Enemies were either some dumb animal Goku could evaporate in a second but somehow didn't, or incredibly unfunny weirdos because most anime writers are unable to write anything resembling comedy.
Moving forward, that one guy made of metal was an okay enemy but he goes away in order to make space for Baby.

The Baby arc was sort of alright, actually. Nice fights all around, the matchups were seemingly inspired by old internet posts like "who wud win gohan vs vegeter???? XD" and that's a good thing. SSJ4 looked incredibly badass and unique; sure it's a huge asspull but DB is not stranger to them, starting with King Piccolo downright killing Goku only for him to shrug it off by the next episode lol.
As a personal pet-peeve of mine, Majuub getting his hype moment denied for no reason is both stupid and disappointing.

Super 17 was rock bottom trash tier, good thing he goes away quickly. It's even worse than the Garlic Jr. filler arc in Z despite having both Frieza and Cell (and Nappa) in it; at least the filler in Z had big Maron tiddies flopping around the screen.

Lastly, the Shadow Dragon arc had incredible potential, it could've easily been a top 3 hype arcs in the entire franchise but it ended up being a boring monster of the week shitshow with some cool stuff happening somewhat sparsely near the end.

>Now regarding Super, I actually went and watched the first arc (the one with Goku rojo) after seeing people praise it in here, and all I have to say is that I'd much rather rewatch the Baby arc again and pretend Super ends right there.
You mean the Beerus saga? When it came out that one was universally panned. The second arc, Frieze resurrection, too, from what I remember. Most people agree that Super got good in Future Turnks saga. Personally I disagree, I found it to be overly self-serious. Actually dropped the series there for couple months. The tournaments are the true highlights, just pure distilled Dragon Ball.

>mental gymnastics
The author used multiple academic sources. Are you suggesting the academic sources are responsible for "mental gymanstics"?


1) citing academic sources means nothing when the extrapolations are his own - those are mental gymnastics
2) I can find academic sources for all sorts of inane bullshit and create arguments for why Dinosaurs and birds shouldn't be related. Doesn't make that thesis correct
3) This has been covered before. A lolicon is still a lolicon no matter what pseudo-intellectual trappings you dress it up in. Stop continuing this shit duplicate thread.


>1) citing academic sources means nothing when the extrapolations are his own - those are mental gymnastics
Doesn't he directly quote the authors? Don't make me re-read the whole thing again.


>Doesn't he directly quote the authors?
1) out of context excerpts can be made to mean anything i.e. Stalin's out of context quote about "no communists in Lithuania"
2) An author is not an objective source (death of author)
3) He takes a quote and then explains it in his own subjective and biased interpretation (obviously a lolicon will argue favorably for lolicons - including a lolicon in denial).
Then don't. It is an absolute waste of time to write such a paper on a subject of whether fiddling drawn depictions of child-bodies is pedophilic or not. And it is even more a waste of time to read and discuss it repeatedly. Don't take anime seriously and don't engage in drawn CP. All his citations and other crap still boil down to the same fucking arguments about 1000 year old vampire lolis or petite bodies or hebephilia and other nauseating semantics. Again go to the lolipol thread.


Just to add on: No matter how many quotes and deflections he uses, his arguments boil down to the same debunked shit. It's not worth the time of day

What have m/a/nga have you been reading lately, /anime/? For me personally it was probably Beastars and Chainsaw Man, both until the last released chapter at the time and i haven't gotten to reading them again. Both are fairly enjoyable and interesting, although fair warning that the latter is rather angsty. It has some nice character designs, though.

Spoiler for body horror.

Insane power move. Not even interested in the main premise but I'll keep an eye out for these two and see where they go. Helps that it's only a light 4 pages. The collective pearl clutching of horrified non-sickos is a freebie.

Yesterday I finished watching season 3, and I haven't been able to put it out of my mind since. I don't like that, it's just a high school romantic comedy after all. Hopefully writing a few lines about it will make that go away.

They really surprised my by committing to a definite conclusion. The way the story resolved, the way the love triangle resolved, was not unexpected in my opinion - what we got was what the story had been building up to, what had been telegraphed from the beginning. But given the ambiguous endings of the previous seasons and the often bittersweet conclusion to minor arcs, I didn't think they would play it completely straight in the end. Fully expected them to either leave the matter unresolved again, or end with everyone-losing-but-growing-from-the-experience. But they stuck the landing, and for all intents and purposes the story has concluded, the curtain has dropped. This too was made clear before the actual finale of course, with the repeated references to endings and conclusions in the dialogue, but that doesn't sink in until it has happened.

Maybe that's what's irking me - I've gone a couple of years living with this as something that promised to be forever unresolved, and now I'm faced with abrupt closure. I didn't want it to ever be really over.

Still, I have a gripe. Call it team-Yui sour grapes if you want. Story-wise, the love triangle obviously resolved as it "should" have, if it was to have any positive resolution at all. No need to go into the details of why that is, a blind man can see it. But it leaves a taste that's not just bittersweet but straight up bitter. What the story builds to is an unironic Hiki-Yukinon power couple. The culmination of their on-screen relationship consists of them coming together to do [b]event management[/b], which had become a bit of a repeating trope in the latter half of the series. The girlboss of the wealthy family wins, and acquires an utterly loyal and at least moderately competent future husband who will help her take over and run the family empire. We are expected to have sympathy for the rich girl; how terrible it is for her to be burdened with all these expectations and these exacting family members, and how much of a savior her future husband proves to be… Frankly I don't like it, and I don't have as much sympathy as the story would want me to. Fuck the rich and their problems.

I sometimes enjoy that, but few anime or media in general allow there to be catharsis with their negativity.

The manga/anime industry is inherently anti-art because the creators are incentivised to milk the fuck out of their series untill no one cares about them anymore - even to a more extreme degree than the Hollywood franchises and TV shows. I'm sure you could find a good story in most mangas, the problem is that it's buried under the 95% unnecessary bullshit and it lacks the proper execution because it's created under a lack of time. The deadline driven nature of comics prevents them from entering a higher level of art.


Post is literally: Anime industry [read capitalism] leads to non-artistic products, as money > art for creators, just like any other mass media (movies, tv series, etc.) because pragmatism and greed over-rule artistic expression or actual effort in execution due to the time/budget constraints on artists (see >>617)

Thank you youtubers for giving birth to thousands of pseuds like this that MUST apply their surface-level knowledge of political theory to all media they consoom.


Political analysis of media is something everyone does, whether it is correct is another matter, but that's why this is a thread and not a thesis paper; people write out what they think and discuss. If you're not interested, DON'T READ IT. It's not that hard to hide a post and ignore it.
