Hajime no Ippo mangaka George Morikawa sparked controversy on Japanese Twitter for complaining about art made by staff of the animated adaptation of his manga…
Morikawa's original posts were about him fearing counterfeits of his own art, but he went on to discuss artwork being done at overseas events, the fact that animators don't necessarily have the right to do it, especially if they profit off of it
This is actually a thorny, sometimes tightly controlled issue: last summer, at the Paris Japan Expo, animators Keiichi Ichikawa and Eisaku Inoue were forbidden to draw any One Piece or Saint Seiya art during signing sessions
This is also an issue in Japan. Another mangaka, Shoko Hamada, discussed not just illustrations and fan art, but artbooks sold as dôjinshi by individual animators. A good example would be Kerorira's Bocchi the Rock! artbook, one of the most prized publications of last summer's Comiket
Another infamous example of this kind of controversy is that of legendary animator and designer Tomonori Kogawa, who once sold original illustrations he made of characters from Galaxy Express 999, much to the ire of original mangaka Leiji Matsumoto….
God forbid exploited animators actually do something for themselves. I fucking love copyright law and "intellectual" property.

>the fact that animators don't necessarily have the right to do it, especially if they profit off of it
Uhhhhhh how is this NOT rent-seeking? Assholes want to ban even fanart because muh IP


The post was phrased as a general trend rather than /isg/.


define rent seeking


a thread strictly about manga, mangaka and animators is now "/isg/"


This guy just recently got bombarded cause he said to respect all art and included AI art. He didn't react well, he means well but he's pretty dumb.


Just watched the new season of Castlevania the other night on Netflix and it wasn't too bad. The animation seems significantly jankier this season in a lot of places and it looks like they're using the awful CG models from Berserk or Kingdom or some shit at times. A couple of the fights are really fluid and fun, but a lot just looked… bad.

Warren Ellis isn't a spectacular writer but I did like the anti-aristocrat/ruling class and anti-imperialism themes. It's pretty explicit in calling out the greed of the wealthy and the futility of imperialism, and the main characters overtly say that the ruling classes are either incapable or unwilling to help so that the only option is for people to organize themselves. I'm not sure if the multiculturalism we see in the refugee town is meant as Liberal multicult pap or as a somewhat subtle gesture towards internationalism, but I suppose it could be interpreted either way. I don't know how many black or brown people there were in 14th century Wallachia, but in the context of the show it seems like it makes sense we have vampires from Copenhagen to Cathay in on Dracula's omnicidal war, so it's easy to imagine there's a lot of population disruption going on.

Not a great season, but fun. Three Marx out of five.

It's actually pretty good. This season dunks on liberal Girlboss shit, imperialism, and the vampires are a stand in for the bourgeoisie which the show states in pretty plain terms should kill themselves for the good of the planet.

Honestly considering how Castlevania tears apart both literally and figuratively things like Imperialism, liberalism, religious institutinalism and corruption (and so on) I'm genuinely surprised it's not more popular on this site.

Somebody could dangle keys in front you and you would start babbling the word “based” over and over.


People want to feel validated by the media they consoom.


>zombies are the real communists
Unironically I recall some /pol/fag arguing that zombies in media like World War Z are a representation of Communism… I fucking burst out laughing.


Read the manga, but I personally love it.


Ignoring the pseud tirades like the one OP posted, it's good, yes. Pretty original for zombie media.

Hello comrades, I'm here with a proposal: let's start a scanlation group to bring leftist manga to a non-Japanese audience.
>Are there any leftist manga???
Yes, for example the masterpiece of Japanese communist literature Kani Kousen (The crab cannery ship) got three manga adaptation. Two of them are available in digital, and I suggest we start from them.
>What do you bring to the table? You're aren't one of those "idea guys", right?
I'm a scanlator: I translate, clean pages and add text. I can do basically anything you need to do to release a manga, except I'm not too good with PS and since I'm not a native speaker I also need someone else to do editing and proofreading.
Oh, I can also provide raws and I have uploading privileges on mangadex.
>How do we organize?
That's something I can't answer. I know that d*scord is a big no-no, but I don't know many alternatives, so I'd like to hear your proposals.

So, what do you think?

Insanely skillful artwork and inventive imagery. Really wish political cartoons in general were this good.


Scans of Sakura Illustrated were posted here and to archive.org over a year and a half ago. It includes the original English translation of the chapter you mentioned (you can also find it on mangadex iirc)

Here's the thread: https://leftypol.org/anime/res/5156.html


yeah I know lol I'm pretty sure I was the final push that got the scanner to do buy and scan em. just saying it would be cool if it was fully translated


>>5156 is how you link to other posts anon. Also bump for an actually good thread that should get more people into this.

>can we admit that this anime sucked?
Yes. Boring story with an annoying protagonist; like the actual game, it failed to deliver its hype.

These two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime, everyone loves them, yet they are such fucking garbage, literal trash, why are they so fucking bad holy shit.
And I watched it when I was a kid and even then I HATED it, I had a friend who also watched DBZ and he hated it too, even we who were just two little dumbass kids could recognize how shit this cartoon was. And dont get me started on Super.
Naruto is just as bad if not worse, they somehow contradict their own message every god damn time, and have a little privileged retarded kid as the main character who was born with le epic god powers, and never works a day in his life to achieve anything, its all just handed to him

Don't try and dodge the question



>the Citizen Kane of anime
lmao, what? More like the superhero movies of anime.
>yet they are such fucking garbage
Well, duh, read the manga.


>More like the superhero movies of anime.
Dragon Ball and Bleach maybe, but Naruto? One Piece? they're nothing like superhero movies.


>These two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime
Nobody has ever said this

Fellow weeboos, why do otaku like this guy? I can't stand him. I'm sure his games are fun, but he pisses me off so much that he ruins them for me. Let's see:
>Mary Sue
>two dimensional at best, one dimensional 90% of the time
>overpowered in a lazy/uncool way
>acts like a spoiled child
>almost always gets away with his crimes and gets what he wants
>is pretty much fucking Satan but whitewashed via moral relativism, poor excuse of "comedy" and plot armor
Some of these are fine in isolation or as satire, but ALL of these in combination? Holy crap I hate this fucker. And I don't even love to hate him like a villain that gets you pumped up, I HATE hate him. What's the deal? Am I missing something?

>(in his head, this was a good rebuttal)


none of these people can process characters more than “good” or “bad, something as simple as someone who isn’t a good person or a nice person but is a Heroic person breaks their breams


Whatever anyone wants to say with art is diluted if the medium is interactive, because ultimately, players want to make their own choices and enjoy games in their own way.

He's a parody/satire of isekai protags but rather than fully subversive like Konosuba, it leans into the tropes to absurdity.


File: 1713919128912.png (421.56 KB, 1033x904, eyeroll.png)

Rance is a "parody" of Ys, zoomie. They wanted to make Ys but with the protagonist being an amoral rapist that immediately expanded in world-building and characterization with the following games and the main characters end up changing the status quo of the world more than Ys itself, even.

Konosuba gives up the facade of a parody pretty quickly and ends up playing all the cliches straight. It gets even worse in the volumes that haven't been adapted yet.

I loved the original but didn't really care for this remake. I thought they took everything that made the original interesting and tossed it out the window.


I like both designs tbh. They both exemplify their given aesthetic eras in visually striking ways


Checked, I guess GETS say you're right.

I only watched the OG anime but now that I think about isn't the title kind of a spoiler. Like his arm nuke is only revealed about halfway through
