sounds based as fuck agitprop


悲しい もの


this was my exact experience with the movie as well, when it came out in 2007.
it was


Fantastic film. Big agree. The fact that I can vividly imagine the scenes at the end just based on your text is a testament to the impact it had on me. The rotoscope(?) style of animation was also visually pleasing, moreso than something like A Scanner Darkly.


>A Scanner Darkly

Thats a nice film.
Also whats this Bashir film youre talking about?

>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.

idk why people who only know about 2ch from hearsay say this when one of their biggest boards is leftist and the biggerest board makes fun of netouyo constantly


2ch pol board is full of right-wing wth lmao


just to add to this, the site can dislike LDP but they dislike them because they introduce LGBT bills and don't hate Koreans enough. The place is full of kurd hate lately.


>pol board
and this surprises you how?

It doesn't, but last I checked it was nearing the largest board and overwhelmingly netouyo still. I just opened the 2ch overboard and picked around countless anti-immigration and basic netto shit all outside /pol/

you can recognize the good direction on some episodes, and the complex character, even forgive shit like the bad animation and slide show episodes. But also have to recognize that nobody that is actually sane can get through 10 episodes that are basically 70% repeated footage with only 30 % that is different, holy shit the early episodes all have the same beats, the elevator sequence, the fight, the different speaches. That only ever starts to get better like halfway through. I know we were all amazed by the moving colors in the 90s, but this is simply unforgivable today


Not the first time I've read something like that. Other scholars pointed out that a law passed in the 80s to help women stay in the workforce brought a new type of magical girl: the kind that fights evil with her powers, so sailor moon.

Those are part of Ikuhara's style. All his anime have such things, it's part of his charm as a director.


That's bullshit, why isn't that a problem in the second half, or in mawaru penguin drum? Besides that what kinda directorial choice is it to have entire episodes of footage loops, like episode 7 I think it contained like 2 minutes of original animation, 1 at the beginning and one at the end and the rest was recycled animation loops, maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, maybe It was like 4 min, but you seriously think this is a valid direction choice, what is it trying to say? Commenting on the futility of watching anime? Lmao


it's a show about being gay with your aunt

Then again, I actually find anime cliches part of the appeal of the medium. But FMAB and JoJo live in my heart rent-free.


Boring unoriginal slop with bland visuals and uninteresting characters, with a toxic and unfunny fan base of smelly weaboos who watch it just to goon and tradcath groypers who think that the demoms are ackshually meant to represent da joos

The story idea is nice but I haven't read this yet, it sounds like a good exploration of the fanatasy genre while taking into consideration elf longevity.


Unfortunately they drop it pretty early for cool animay fights. It gets real uninteresting

Why is the school setting liked so much in anime? It cannot just be that the target audience is mostly children, because there are a lot of anime of this sort oriented to older otaku also. Do anime ever make more than passing attempts at portraying so called "adulthood" as a future to be excited about?

Its not like you have a choice. Adults make you take it seriously. Yet, when you graduate, they just shrug you off. All that acdemic bulkshit you go through and they say "meh you dont know shit" even though they crininalize kids for skipping school.

I really think adults underestimate the treachery of school largely because theyve been away from it for so long.
Thats the beauty of childhood nostalgia and marketing.


It could be a cultural difference
From what i can tell japanese schools are usually better than ones overseas
In america unless you went to a good school you're lucky to get one that has clubs and shit to hang out in


What i find funny about the school setting is that a lot of these anime don't even take place in the school itself
It's just there to remind you that these characters are in fact teenagers that go to school, but then they just stop having them attend school at some point


>explanations for this quasi-Orientalism
It's probably largely due to this sentiment.

The factors that seem to contribute would be:
1. The alternative modernity that Japan represents to the people from more Western parts of the West, as opposed to the still quite culturally hegemonic— in the imperial core that the Western nations comprise— American ilk of modernity, has offered some sort of avenue of escapism that is exotic, convenient, and amassed as @Orikron aforementioned has said basically, yet not actually Other to the empire, as
Eurasian civilizations Russia, China,‌‌‌‌‍‌⁣‌⁢⁣⁢⁣‌‍‌‬⁣‍‬‌‍‬‬‬‬‌‬‌‌‌‌‍‬‬‌‌‌‌‍‬‌‌‌‌‌‍‬‬‌‌‌‌‍‬⁣‌‌‌‌‍‍‌‌‌‌‍‬‌‌‌‌‌‍‬‬‌‌‌‌‍‍‌‌‌‌‍‬‍‌‌‌‌‍⁢⁢‌‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌‍⁣‌‌‌‌‬‌‍‌‌‌‌⁢‍‬‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‬⁢‌‌‌‌⁢‍‍‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‍⁢‍‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌⁢‌⁢‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌⁢‌‬‌‌‌‌‬⁣⁣‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌⁢‬‍‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‬‌‌‌‌‌⁢‌⁢‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‍⁢‬‬‌‌‌‌‌‍⁢ ‌‌‌‌⁢‍⁢‌‌‌‌⁢‍‌‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‌‌‌⁢‍‍‌‌‌‌‬⁢‌‌‌‌‬⁣‍‌‍‌‬‍‍‬and Iran are; so as to go and step outside of the hegemony's boundaries.

2. To paraphrase someone, stagnation fuels novelty, and the popular culture industry and the subcultural niches in Japan, as other researchers have noted, have enormously flourished, while the Japanese society itself has suffered the malaises of the bust— this phenomenon is probably noticeable incidentally in the content of some anime; furthermore, Japan was also one of the first countries to venture into that postmodernity, into the sort of societal impasse that now afflicts numerous nations elsewhere in the West, too, with the failure of the old narratives and similar (go check out Utena also), and plus further Japan was one of the first countries in Asia to modernize, so the Orientalistic stereotypes about the aesthetic of Asian modernity and the alterity of it took heavy influence likely from their course, the early impressions and later fetishization of Shibuya to raise one example.

3. The sovereignty of Japan is also as vassal state quite subjugated to the American empire, and many people in the imperial core likely consider the place to be their wacky, "thing, Japan" being sort of the demonstration of this mentality, tourist spot, and the Japanese govt. encourages this sort of almost self exoticization, because of geopolitical cuckoldry or glowie shit.

And it’s not close


There's a thread for this, that being said, I agree. I wish we saw Kaiji organize against capital in a non-death game context as much as that wouldn't really fit the tone of the series

Ah, wait, they put a deuteragonist on the cover? Damn, that's misleading.


I wish there was more of it honestly. All we get is cheesy J-pop and other extremely light music other than an occasional EDM track or two, so boring. It doesn't make me truly excited, a good metal track makes me more interested in the anime itself.

Post some good metal anime tracks btw.


Forgot to mention that there seems to be more metal tracks now than we had before, and now we have a metal anime too. I wonder if this is a trend.
