Just so we're all on the same page, this shit was made by glowies, right? I've only seen bits of it, but it comes across as though it was made to recruit ambitious PMC women into the intelligence community.

The main character (disgustingly named 'Reagan') seems to be custom-crafted to get women to wish to identify with her. She's both more clever and less naive than everyone around her, yet at the same time cooler, more charismatic, and less inhibited. She is a girlboss and drops constant zingers around all the male characters putting them in their place. It's made clear she is sexually appealing to men and out of their league most of the time and is only sexless due to her le epic quirky nerdiness. She has an edgy backstory that gives her feelings of victimization towards her father and is simultaneously highly narcissistically indulging (her father tried to make her perfect through a combination of training and genetic engineering). Many of the plots and scenes seem to revolve around her particular neuroses and emotions, giving them an air of outsized importance. Over and over it is driven home that she is cool and gets to do cool shit due to power, privilege, and nepotism.

Thoughts on this?

>Then this thread should be moved to >>>/hobby/
I agree, but that's up to the mods
>Genndy Tartakovsky
Well somewhat, his style definitely had some anime elements about them, but were stylized in a personal way that made it clear it had various inspirations. Moreover other shows running parallel to it, like Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, Ed, Edd n' Eddy, etc. were all quite non-anime.
>those shows straight-up copy anime
Well they copy the art-style, but I wouldn't say they're copies of anime itself.
>I really don't know how they are different in terms of genre
A show like XJ-9 is clearly like some anime plots, a Slice of Life with some supernatural/sci-fi thrown in. But other stories like Avatar, while having art styles and some gags shared with anime, had stories that clearly did not fit the styles of most anime. Western cartoons have practically never had something like Naruto or One Piece or Bleach, which belong to the Shonen genre that doesn't quite have an equivalent in the West. There may be a few esoteric stories and series, but not a lot. The closest thing to Berserk in Western animation I can think of (for example) would be Todd McFarlane's Spawn, which even today is very niche.
>Maybe in terms of cliches, acting and writing conventions?
This too. A lot of those are different in anime because of how different socio-cultural norms are in Japan and other Far-East-Asian cultures. Itachi's and Danzo's actions in Naruto are something that reflect societal problems in that culture that Kishimoto portrayed in the story. Many Western viewers didn't understand because of how wide the cultural difference was and had all sorts of negative reactions and misunderstandings, as reflected in a lot of fanfiction.
>sometimes I'd prefered they didn't exist at all, if you aren't funny then maybe you shouldn't even try
Fair enough, and agreed.


>his style definitely had some anime elements about them, but were stylized in a personal way that made it clear it had various inspirations
Inspirition is not the same as pastiche, Motorcity and TRON: Uprising both clearly have anime influences. That doesn't mean that they should look exactly like anime to borrow elements from it the same way One Piece doesn't have to look exactly like Western cartoons. The inspiration is still there compared to comic books and the fact that their art style is still distinctly Western doesn't change that.
>Moreover other shows running parallel to it, like Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, Ed, Edd n' Eddy, etc. were all quite non-anime
Didn't say all cartoons are anime-influenced, it's all mostly action cartoons except for… uh… Hi-Hi Puffy AmiYumi? And some parody shows (Dexter, The Simpsons, Family Guy, South Park, Gravity Falls, Gumball, Regular Show). Also, the Invader Zim movie has an animu sequence. Also MLaaTR and FiM probably but don't quote me on that.
>Well they copy the art-style, but I wouldn't say they're copies of anime itself
I meant that they copy both the art style and the cliches, trying to be anime instead of incorporating what the authors like about anime into the Western style.
>Shonen genre
Shonen is anime for teenage boys, not a genre. You're talking about battle shonen which is roughly equivalent to action kids' cartoons but with a more lax censorship, although DBZ's power scaling is a distinctly battle shonen thing (although Ben 10 came very close to it, basically becoming a god in Omniverse).
>A lot of those are different in anime because of how different socio-cultural norms are in Japan
The acting is the way it is not due to socio-cultural norms but due to the influences of the kabuki theater.

It's hard to explain if you're not terminally online enough but basically futanari fandoms have been steadily hijacked by chinlets seething over artists drawing chicks with dicks but no puss and calling it futa. These chinlets have politicized the word futa, to make it basically mean "biological woman with penis". Except not. If you draw a female figure with a penis and no vulva, explain that this is a cis woman who transformed her female genitals into male ones, it's "not futa". Hermaphrodite? No, they don't actually care about that either, a minority of them pretending to be woke will pay lip service to "reverse futa" existing and that's that. What is the meaning then?

In OPPOSITION to anything even vaguely or ambiguously transgender.

You see now that this is connected to a larger current of rightoidism. The current that seethes over anime & video game characters being transgender, non-binary, queer, etc.

The futa politicization would perhaps be a trivial footnote in the greater culture war, if it didn't reach Japan, the source of futanari pornography.


In 2022 (translated in 2023) a so-called "futanari bible" was released by an artist named yana of the doujin circle nekoarashi. "Futanari? What's that?" attempts to analyze and define futanari pornography while providing exactly zero sources; we are just expected to roll with the bullshit of the author (a common feature of rightoid drivel!). The book asserts that futanari must possess both sets of genitals to be futa, that "obviously" everyone knows this is true. You can tell this author was influenced by Westerners by his usage of the word "dickgirl", a word with absolutely zero presence in Japanese-language hentai slang, a word literally invented on 4chan's /d/ board (/d/ickgirl was once the "ethnonym" for denizens of the /d/ board). And speaking of 4chan, said word when it was invented had no particular meaning than "chicks with dicks". Doubling the revisionism, he claims "dickgirl" means "chicks with dicks but no puss". Zero sources of course. He conveniently fails to mention the multitudes of proofs, both within Japanese futanari fandoms and outside of them, of the futanari culture never literally being about "hermaphrodites", for example the futanari convention Futaket for years accepting artists that draw characters with only one set of genitals and JAVsPost too long.

Nope, just because you want me to be your boogieman self-projection doesn't make it any more real. I post sporadically, I'm not here for most of the day and for most of the week. It's an anonymous board, not everyone replying to your idiocy is the same person.

>It is. That is what the definition is.
No, it isn't. MARX's definition of Class (which is what is being referred to) is that class is the position determined by economic factors independent of personal identity, thus Class Struggle is primarily between the proletarian working class and the bourgeois ruling class. Marx's point about women is that identity only differentiates the symptoms of oppression of the class system, and explains that the socio-economic pressures on proletarian men pushes them to replicate this on a domestic basis. The changes and developments to Capitalism since have changed this dynamic.
>The Nazi myth started by Kruschev and the USSR?
The Nazis were claiming the Stalin, Beria etc. were all rapists and womanizers since the 1930s. Khruschev simply used that accusation as part of the bullshit trial. As a source for my claim: On Stalin's Team: The Years of Living Dangerously in Soviet Politics, by Sheila Fitzpatrick, Chapter 9.
>The thing he got tried for
He wasn't on trial for rape, nor was that his conviction, it was simply another accusation brought up; he was tried for "treason" because Khruschev was getting rid of political opponents in his rush to remove all influence of Stalin.

>Who are a minority.
Where's your proof? I posted several trans people, and you've only got yourself to CLAIM. You're dismissing the opinions of other trans people (let alone contesting them) and claiming they're a minority while providing no evidence to that end.
>Most of the trans community loves those like Bridget and Lily.
Conflating Lily and Bridget is /pol/shit. I've explained why.
>You also linked reddit too You are cis and trying to use those that agree with your worldview
<um uh, they don't count because, uhhh REDDIT! Yeah! And you don't count because I'm assuming your identity and rather than address your argument, I'm gonna make an Argument by Authority Fallacy
So you're dismissing a person's opinion because they posted it to reddit? Despite them being trans and not the only one in that thread either? Reminds me of /pol/fags and their automatic dismissal of anything posted on tumblr as "SJW". You have no argument to what the post says, so you're attacking the source. As I said, being trans matters only to you in so far that you can use it to prop up your argument, otherwise it suddenly doesn't matter. If your experiences matter then so do those of the trans people that argue the opposite of you.
>Even in the thing you linked it misgenders transwomen in the PDF
The fuck it does. It's a translation from Japanese, and by default trumps your Westernoid understanding of Japanese culture and wording: https://note.com/wakari_te/n/n3522e245a9a1
And if it had been written by a trans person you would find some other way to dismiss it because their opinion doesn't fit your narrative.
Yes, because as the pdf states, that's what they were seen and called, because it was long before trans-sexuality was commonly known in the public sphere as opposed to cross-dressing, that is history, and to claim otherwise is revisionist and wrong, any more than a prohibition of the word "slave" as a term to describe enslaved African-Americans. You're cherrypicking so as to not address the actual point.

>You said why do you need rep and can't you just connect with a good character argument
1) You're still strawmanning, because I didn't say that
2) You've shifted the goalposts, slapping on the last past about connecting to good characters
TL;DR: “Don’t write a gay character, write a character who happens to be gay.”
But since YOU brought up connecting to good characters; That is separate from representation, just because a character represents an identity doesn't make for a good characterization or story, because CHARACTER is not the same as IDENTITY. A Good Characterization means the identity they may represent is also good representation, and not capitalist tokenism. Your argument that we should just accept poor representation is basically admitting that you're happy capitalists toss you trash to consume because this trash happens to have a trans flagged slapped onto it. Go buy an anarchist shirt from Amazon for 150$ while you're at it.
And again you repeatedly ignore the fact that erasing the representation of a character and replacing them with another for no good reason, is bad. If someone made Blade a white guy, they'd be criticized for erasure of Black characters, rightly so. Since you pointedly ignore my point on Tokenism, let me remind you what it is: "Tokenism is the practice of making only a perfunctory or symbolic effort to be inclusive to members of minority groups"

Yeah, like Rowling said that Dumbledore was supposed to be Gay and there were totally trans students but they weren't shown! Oh wait, everyone laughed at her for retroactively changing her story like that. It's called Death of Author. If the creator of GG legitimately meant the character to be trans then that makes him a fucking transphobe you dipshit, because the narrative is literally that of a boy getting gaslit into becoming a girl… which is LITERALLY (with Post too long.

You know how whenever there's anime primarily aimed at male audiences with romance as a core element, there's always some quotient of dudes responding to it like this? I've long held that these sure are some joyless ghouls, but after some deliberation, I think it's even worse… Most of you are hopefully aware of how much denigration romantic content aimed at women has seen through the ages and even today. Because if women like something but men don't, clearly that something must be of "low value". The whole thing is obviously deeply rooted in misogyny.

Even today, romance in fiction is a very "girl-coded" interest. Thus if a man happens to like romance, eventually they're going to run into toxic masculinity denigrating them for it. How they'll "get no bitches and stack no paper". A mere interest in romance makes them "weak". And it's incredibly obvious how surface level these kind of judgments are. These dudes see "romance" and just refuse to look any further due to toxic masculinity and misogyny.

These shows aren't "bait for lonely dudes" because they revolve around romance, but because the characters are embarrassing adolescent fantasies. It's the same with most romance tbf thoughbeit.

It depends, a lot of older stuff was not like that. Take Iketeru Futari for example. It's a comedy-ecchi series but it works because underneath the silliness are more mature themes and aspects.


>fictional stories are filled with fantasies
holy fucking shit!!


it really baffles me especially with boku no kokoro no yabai yatsu and people calling it incel bait, they clearly didn't watch more than 5 minutes as it's a quite realistic and cute romance between two awkward kids, not to mention the author is a woman (it's good, watch/read it)

Since the board is slow, (and my adhd stuggle to post on near-dead boards), let's do a general discussion thread of what you've been reading/watching.
Similar to the /tv/ thread on hobby.

I'll start:
Manga: Kingdom
It's alot of fun, currently on chapter 430.
Despite the restriction of it being in the past, there's alot of strategy/complication that makes it interesting to read.

And the manga is fun in the fact that it has shoenin level power clashing and hyping of characters – but still respects reality.
Like a character being healed after a fight is explained by months or even years of a time skip, or when situations where "talk-no-jutsu" would've occurred in shoenin, instead the person ranting is just meant to understand the world more before they die.

I am reading some others as well, like: Vinland Saga, One Piece, Watamote, and a few others – just been alittle addicted to Kingdom.
(I should catch up with One Piece though.. I'm 110 chapters behind with it).

>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.
