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?

>let's only talk about decades old shit that has been talked to death
amazing idea

>old shit
NTA but the point is that it's NOT shit
>talked to death
Every person can bring something new to the table, and just because somewhere, sometime ago, someone talked about an animated film/series, doesn't mean that other people won't want to talk about it or discuss about it, or hell even reminisce.

At the very least something of quality is a better topic of discussion than an obvious shitshow that the conversation over which is summarized by laughing at it and pointing out how same-faced it is compared to similar "adult" animations.


I'd say western animation seems to have more diverse art styles than the typical manga style of Japanese but I wouldn't say it's superior or inferior as a rule


>western animation
>generally superior
>culturally accessible


theres only "western animation" (mainstream burger tv cartoons) and the rest (the anime shows i dislike)


I'm watching the Karl Marx anime and I'm interested by the portrayal of the Capitalist not necessarily as a piggish or greedy miser but as almost a sort of Carnival barker, a showman.

I think that is interesting and actually a much better depiction of the Capitalist as opposed to Porky. Like a P.T. Barnum type figure that secretly knows the truth that Capitalism is exploitative and ultimately a scam, and must sell an ideology in order to keep the scam going.

Scams like "multi-level marketing" are known to most people by now, but that's only because they hide the truth, that Capitalism is fundamentally a scam. Both of them, of course, have the same advertising pitch: "you TOO can become wealthy! If you just play the game you too can join the ruling class!" Of course Hollywood put out a movie celebrating P.T. Barnum recently. Go figure.

>Porky comes from USSR just after WW1, when starvation was a very real problem. It was politically expedient to depict Capitalists as fat in that environment.
The Porky meme specifically comes from the early USSR, but the fat capitalist caricature comes from decades before. He's been a fatass with a top hat pretty much from the dawn of a (semi) mass English-language socialist press in the 1890s, and probably even before that in the Germany.

>I'm watching the Karl Marx anime
It's still worth watching, but it has some major, major flaws. The most inexplicable thing that I noticed is that Wilhelm Liebknecht features heavily in the episodes set in the 1870s - except that Liebknecht had been living in Germany for almost a decade at that point, and I don't think ever returned until Karl Marx's funeral in 1883. Also he looks fucking nothing like Liebknecht - maybe more like Bernstein, but he would also have been ahistorical in the time periods depicted.

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?

the mistake is taking school seriously beyond learning to read, write and basic maths.


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.

Death of the Author sucks. It is cited almost exclusively by idiots and for the wrong reasons too.


Writing quality severely in some areas with some highlights. I think it would've been more fair for me to say pre-Kage summit to be in C tier and afterwards to be in D tier. But an example of what I'd consider bad writing is the ending of the Pain Invasion which, to me, was a fantastic arc with a horrible resolution making all of the stakes of the invasion meaningless.


Funniest post in the thread.

No reason for why it should be dismised for the review, (something that makes the review look as if the author wanted to hate the show); no reason for why it's bad; and no arguments on a "good" usage – all to handwave the rest of the comment.

Yea fair.
I still enjoyed it since it's the final turning point of Naruto's reputation – if the creator was allowed to kill more characters, and make this the final arc before Naruto vs Sasuke, it would've been much better.
Granted, some bullshit would've occured, since the original big 3 had to suffer from something.

Why does any fictiin depicting children/teens as main characters is always automatically called "pedophikia bait" or "unrelatable to proper adults"?


>This is an adult woman.
99% of Alunya images depicts her as a little kid and drawn as one since the first design


She's drawn as a short woman, one of the earliest designs of her aged at like 20
