>My philosophical ramblings on (disjointed parts of) Lain / SEL.

>The philosophical point of the wired.

The wired is basically the cultural / superstructure sphere given a type of Pseudo-'Form' in the context of the internet.
Lain's dad points out to her at the very start of the anime in very blunt terms [paraphrasing haven't watched it in a while]
<"The wired is just a medium of transferring information and communicating with other people - dont confuse it for reality"
But very tellingly. The entire rest of the anime STOMPS all over this idea.
Throughout the series we see hints and have it eventually confirmed to us that the wired IS capable of having a effect on material reality. And even in the way the show is fleshed out, the audience is left constantly confused half the time whether something is really happening or is just happening in the 'wired'.

It plays out in effectively a similar paradigm as the Marxist 'Base and Superstructure' except instead of a strictly economic base effecting culture which can then in turn lead to changes in the base in a closed loop, this is applicable to 'reality in general' instead of a pure economics talking point

From the first time Lain goes onto the wired we see the same pattern unfold either at her hands or as the story develops the alter/copycat/deformed Lains. This pattern emerges…

<A. Lain goes onto and performs some sort of task or interaction on the wired.

>Masami's plan / Dimensional merge / The V.R goggles guy.

Masami who is basically the main antagonist of the series, entire plan revolves around him first 'dying' in the real world which is revealed to actually have been him digitizing and uploading his consciousness into the wired using Sci-Fi I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE level bullshittery.
From this point he intends to 'bring the wired and the real world together'
<What does that mean?
The world becomes a deleuzians paradise.
A completely imminent world with no observable or real separation between the perceived base and its culture/superstructure or in this scenario the 'real world' and the 'virtual world'. Obviously we dont get a chance to see what this would have functionally looked like. but from some of the events we see in the later episodes, I doubt it would have ended well for most people.

The V.R goggles sex pest guy we see about halfway through the series is actually one of the most similar to Masami in terms of their goals, Both of them initially want some sort of Liberation from the 'real world' and existence inside the wired. Though Masami succeeds (And to put it once more in Deleuzean terms - by literally abandoning or destroying his physical body so that his consciousness could continue to exist infinitely and unfettered by biological needs inside the wired) while the V.R goggles guy clearly fails. simply living a NEET lifestyle with a Meta.TM headset glued to his face all day. While still ultimately having to deal with the automatic reactions and requirements of his body in the real world.

Despite Masami's plans failure being the climax of series and us obviously never getting to see it's consequences, One character obviously does 'transcend' their physical limitations in an obvious way.
Lain herself seemingly becomes capable of 'living' inside the wired much the same way that Masami did. But is also able to quite clearly 'make themselves' physical in the real world whenever and wherever they want. Effectively becoming Omnipresent at every discernible individual point of time and space both within the virtual and real worlds

So basically Lain succeds where both Masami and V.R failed and ends up somewhat achieving the 'merge' that Masami desired. at least on a personal level.

From left to right. The main Lain is her ego, the Lain of the Wired who is often seen as Cyberia is her superego, and the devious Lain is her id. This is why there is multiple Lains because they represent different aspects of herself. Except for the people on the wired who took on a distorted form of Lain they probably represented something else.

What is the materialist explanation for me being met with pages upon pages of gay male pornography for when I searched for jojo r34?

Not even dbz has this much amount of gay male pornography

Are the tumblr chicks okay? And this was on the starudst crusaders tag only for some reason

jjba characters are attractive and dragon ball chars arent


>Gay JoJo porn
That's what your average JoJo fan watches to relax after hard day of watching JoJo.


Hell yeah.


kek I mean it makes a lot of sense that you found endless amounts of yaoi* instead of whatever you were looking for, since Stardust Crusaders had only like 4 female characters.

*yaoi: male x male art and (fan)fiction made by women for a female audience. Its rough Western equivalent is called "slash" (after "male/male"). It's different from bara, which is gay porn drawn by and for gay men.

Yaoi/BL* has been popular since the 70s, I think. And JoJo has always had a significant amount of female fans, most (but not all) of which are "fujoshi"†. Jotakak, the pairing of Jotaro and Kakyoin, is extremely popular, probably the most popular JoJo ship‡, because Stardust Crusaders itself is the most popular JoJo part of all time. This has been true since the late 80s which is when Part 3 started. JoJo attracts so many female fans because of its huge cast of diverse, cool male characters dressed in flamboyant and stylish clothes, and fujoshi in particular because said male characters, who are usually if not always single, spend a lot of time together and often have passionate feelings for each other in the form of rivalries, friendships, etc., which makes it easy for fujoshi to interpret their relationships as romantic and/or sexual in fan-created media (which shippers‡ in general do whenever there's tension between two characters).

As for the materialist explanation for the popularity of yaoi and the existence of fujoshi, there are already a couple of threads where they have been discussed (in short: there are many different reasons, some of which haven't been talked about on this board). Also, female creators, many of which were yaoi artists, used to be the majority at Comiket (and still are in a number of other Japanese anime/manga conventions) until lolicon artists started to actively compete against them with more sexually explicit content (see: https://crawfordpro.wordpress.com/2020/05/03/article-the-castle-of-doom-and-the-lolicon-boom/). So, if anything, yaoi was already popular before straight hentai doujinshi (through lolicon, I presume) experienced its own "boom", though I'm not sure of how popular straight hentai made by men was before that. However, this last part is just speculation based on wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Also did you know that CLAMP (the mangaka behind Cardcaptor Sakura and other classic anime) made a BL Jotakak parody doujinshi where Kakyoin lays an egg containing his and Jotaro's son called Jota Kujo who would later appear briefly in a 1994 OVA? lol

It was a silly cartoon aimed at children that got old 6 episodes in for people that only watched Evangelion and decided that they were anime experts.

>Sanpei Shirato, whose father was a proletarian painter, was heavily influenced by leftist artists and social activists. His work is thick with an evangelical disposition—utopian and idealistic. It blurs the line between reality and ideology. Early in 1959, Shirato rose to fame with Ninja Bugeichō , a story of a peasant uprising during the Sengoku period written from the perspective of the lower class in a rigid hierarchical society; it weaves a Marxist and materialist view of history, and soon became the subject of leftist praise.

>(…) Against this current, manga magazines proved to be a more standardized form of publication, gradually pushing out rental publications. This growth allowed Shirato to fund and set up a publishing company, Seirindo, with Katsuichi Nagai, and publish a magazine, Garo—a publication born out of the genes of leftist thought. Garo was destined to become a centerpiece of the student movements of the 1960s and early 70s, continuing manga’s expansion into new and unexplored realms. Garo’s peculiar content brought all kind of unusual material to the forefront of manga.

>The artists Garo published came to be referred to as the Garo School, which was equal parts experimental and authorial. But the artist who really shocked was Yoshiharu Tsuge. He came from a poor family and started drawing for rental comics as a teenager, making his way into Tezuka’s apartment office. Despite this, he felt constantly frustrated and had trouble making ends meet, living in a bathroom just big enough for a single tatami mat. This experience became the basis of his work. The openness of Garo’s editorial staff allowed Tsuge free reign. Beginning with his category-defying samurai manga Uwasa no Bushi, Tsuge refined own style free of restraint, culminating with “Nejishiki,” or “Screw Style.” It was a major shock for other authors and readers alike: it broke away the pursuit of meaning and instead chose to describe absurdity. Garo’s main readership at the time was leftist students influenced by avant-garde western art attuned to and willing to accept anything that broke away from traditional molds. If Shirato made the magazine a political tastemaker, Tsuge formally linked it to the avant garde.

>Kamui Den is a manga series written and drawn by Sanpei Shirato. Set in feudal Japan, it tells the story of a low-born ninja who has fled his clan. The series combines historical adventure with social commentary and themes of oppression and rebellion that reflect Shirato's Marxist convictions.
And of course only one volume was ever translated.


FYI elemhunter of HabaneroScans spent a good couple years scanning raws of issues of Garo and uploading them to nyaa.si and archive.org.


HS were also responsible for fansubbing Urasawa Naoki no Manben. a really great series that I'm sad no other group has picked back up.


this sounds interesting as fuck
how often do you see manga or anime written by Marxists? I've always wanted to see that. I'm gonna read this one.

thank fuck, imagine if there was only the Nyaa torrents and they had 0 seeders due to lack of interest as it often happens.


I have read some works by Yoshihiro Tatsumi which were all good and sober.

Always a peculiar feeling when I'm checking a mangaka's twitter and it's filled with retweets of Amerikan political bullshit. Most recent one even had Joe Rogan's clips about the covid vaccine.
It doesn't happen often but ideally it wouldn't happen at all.

Joe Rogan is based :^)


yeah an artist I followed thought Putin was communist and was invading Ukraine to spread communism. also, think it was done some day that Putin did talked about his “de-Nazification” speech, so it not only clicked this dude as a dumbass but also a fucking Nazi sympathizer.


was the artist Japanese?


>you follow a shallow person to find out they're shallow
Then stop following them. It's that simple.

Goshujinsama, please observe this move I learned today.


I'm not trying to start anything or get into any kid of idpol argument.

I'm just wondering why so many anime, many of which never receives a release outside of Japan, and takes place in Japan, is filled with characters who are obviously not Japanese.

Picrel, with a redhaired green-eyed character and a blue-eyed blonde, in the anime, both are native Japanese. They also have big noses like Caucasians.

What's going on here?

Japanese anime predates Disney p sure.


File: 1645532904383.jpg (24.84 KB, 300x200, Lagoon_Company.jpg)

Short answer: That is what the majority of the market wants and they are in the business of selling views of their anime.

Some studios recognize that non-whites are part of their audience and have an ensemble of protagonists , such as "Black lagoon" that had Rock , a Japanese man , Revy a Chinese-American woman , Dutch an African-American and Benny , a white (Jewish?) American . and it was pretty well received. Probably because they concentrated on making storytelling their first and only priority and left idpol at the door.


Tezuka got inspiration from Disney

>white (Jewish?) American
pic rel. Also recurring cast included the Russian Balalaika and the soldiers under her command, the Chinese mafia, an Indian money counterfeiter girl, and a ex-FARC militant maid from Colombia. Black Lagoon is really damn diverse.

Feels like we're overdue for a new idol mecha, when's the next Macross gonna be?


It's going to be a sequel to Macross Frontier given there was a short film about Ranka that was screened alongside the Macross Delta movie.
