Not to mention that adventurer guilds are historically absurd. It's just modern late-capitalist japan re-imagining itself as a feudal fantasy land, and all the trappings of magic and elves and shit only lightly cover what is in fact a very depressing genre, in which "freedom" is pretty much just freedom to live your old alienated life except this time you have superpowers and hot chicks following you for no discernible reason.

Just finished this show and it has become one of my favorites. On the surface this anime appears to be trash anime packed full of fan service, but on watching it the so called "trash anime" is brimming with substance. excellent character design, badass soundtrack, and one of the satisfying endings I have seen in a long time. This show can make a scene of a butt naked woman running around killing enemy's with nothing but her toe nail feel empowering and not at all exploitative and fan servicey. What are your guys opinion on the show?

Equal hypersexualization would be a slight improvement from the current status quo, but hypersexualization is symptom of bourgeois decadence regardless and isn't even "socially progressive". Communist countries have both been socially progressive and somewhat conservative about sex, after al.

Why exactly do you think the left is necessarily anti-titty?

>Stealing robots and fusing them to create new robots is part of the show's statement on earned individuality

This is ignoring a big part of the show to hyper-focus on one aspect of it. I don't think anyone was denying that personal development and growth was a major theme of the show, but that doesn't mean there wasn't any social commentary as well. You gonna argue that the episode where they found that underground colony that had a religion worshiping a derelict mech as a god and made sacrifices to it by sending people to the surface to presumably die when their population got too big was a commentary about "earned individuality"?

Not that anon by he probably fell for reactionary bullshit

I don't think "earned individuality" is even the core theme of Gurren Lagann; my point is that "stealing robots = seizing the means of production" has little basis, especially when the actual show gives you a million hints as to what that element symbolizes.
>>16339
you can't with a straight face imply this stuff isn't widespread in online leftist circles, especially when people in this very thread say that nerds "missed the point" of Kill la Kill re: fanservice, compare said fanservice to American History X's portrayal of nazism & claim "you're supposed to feel bad for wanting hypersexualization of women in anime". are those supposed to be /pol/ falseflags?

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?

NGE GENERAL
NEON GENESIS EVANGELION GENERAL

And wow, I fucking hated it to be perfectly honest. It seems like the entire show is only about Shinji's angst (and Rei increasingly I'm sure) and the characters various emotional issues, but like, okay, who cares? The situations they're thrown into are totally absurd and ridiculous so how can I take any of this drama stuff seriously?

Like these kids are the last best hope of mankind and they seem to be totally unsupported by anyone? Shinji was gonna live in a totally empty tenement and it's only his superior's minor moment of reasonable judgement that means he lives with her instead (and she is clearly no kind of parent figure), and Rei lives in a dark, dingy slum dwelling made of all concrete with nobody taking care of her either?

Like, their emotional reactions seems somewhat understandable but also completely dull and uninteresting because the situation they're in is absurd (and even then they both come off as pathetic and unlikeable - and no you can't say 'but that's the point!!', that doesn't make it entertaining to watch).

The less said about the non-angst portions of the story the better, the 'fights' are 10 minutes of foreplay for like 60 seconds of action if that, and while that's a common problem with anime, that doesn't make it excusable.

Yes this series is old and I'm sure it has inspired so much but people still recommend to watch it and it just seemed like garbage. Almost nothing is explained which means I can't possibly feel invested in this absurd world in any way. Every part of the setting seems to have been created with 'style over substance' in mind, urgh, just overall I found it absurd. Try not to give too much spoilers because I guess I might still try watch it, but I really don't see it redeeming itself.

Though for context I also hated 'The Godfather' and 'No Country For Old Men' and thought they were pretentious overlong shit, so maybe I'm just a contrarian.

I'd say 1-I dunno half way, before they ran out of budget and behind schedule were good. When it started being student film art school nonsense is when I started not feeling it.

Like literally they had to change the show half way through because they didn't have enough time or money to animate it anymore. Ok I looked it up. It was episode 16 where they ran out of time and money and started winging it.

Is this because consequences of such cuck nation? Like why tf there's so much fucked up NTR? Idc if the NTR involving a boss with her/his subordinates gangbanged him/her.

But this kind of kinks or cults involving cannibalism & such, are really disgusting.

Unless sacrificing crapitalism worshippers like picrel.

Mangaupdates.
Learn how to use tags and how to find specific translation groups that typically work on good series. You can pretty quickly narrow down your results and cut a lot of chaff.
LovelyStrangeDark for example is a very solid group that largely works on very interesting manga.

I follow (at least) two people on twitter. One posts anime box art ranging from older series to some more recent. If the either the title or art, or even both look interesting enough to me, I add it to the list or at least bookmark it. The other posts updates and news on stuff like new official scans and distribution, with his tweets structured in a way that includes the title, a volume cover and a description of the plot and I just do the same thing. Other than that, word of mouth, places like these, looking for similar manga in the same genre (usually after finishing something)
