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?

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.

Simple question. Not asking for titles. Just for methods. MD only features manga that are anime and there's a lot of garbage/isekai that's not very good.

Usually I just browse the MAL rankings for certain tags and look for stuff that actually has well-written reviews that articulate what's interesting about a series instead of just saying "the plot is good". Needless to say not very reliable but it's the best I've found

I make some plot up basis and see if it already exists or browse more scarce genres because less to pick from.

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)

Hey! I just scanned and uploaded a collection of Genpei Akasegawa's left wing political cartoons from the 1970s. You can find it here:

https://archive.org/details/sakura-illustrated-collection

It contains Concerned Theatre Japan's English translation of the special issue. Although I didn't realize it was already on mangadex:

https://mangadex.org/title/43800/sakura-illustrated/comments/

More information about both Genpei Akasegawa's manga/illustration work as well as Concerned Theatre Japan:

>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.

How much of this actually exists? Annie-may that's so embarrassingly incompetent that you can actually sit through and laugh at ironically, like a hilariously bad movie? It's normally a lot harder to do because every bit of animation has thought and effort put into it, so it just comes off as intolerably bad when it's bad. Unlike an incompetent movie, which is much easier for someone with a handheld camera to half-ass their way through to a finished product. Pic related, Psychic Wars is fucking terrible.

To be fair, for all its stupidity, it had an interesting premise, and the 90s/2000s style makes it a gem of so-bad-its-good.

I've never been this insanely bored watching something,the ending is litterally the only interesting part and it makes no goddamn sense,like you're telling miss useless tsundere was actually playing 5d checkers with time travel when she has done nothing this entire time ?
the animation is shit outside some very specific episodes too (and even then it's good for 2 minutes and it goes back to talking about nonsense for 10 minutes to pad out the runtime),half of them are about ininteresting randoms or they're straight up insane.
I personnaly didn't find it funny,but I can understand if somebody did.

Apocalypse Zero is a fucking masterpiece with legit great humanistic politics if you read the manga, also gets super in-your-face about Japanese war crimes and anti-nationalism. Anime focused more on the action-comedy but it's still good.

It's a perfect optimistic companion piece to Shigurui.

Mad Bull manga is fantastic, anime is pretty good, Crying Freeman sadly sucks and removes a lot of the comedy from the manga >>5169
>>3608
Geist is legitimately good too though definitely very rough; I feel that its "beginner director" traits help as much as harm it though.
>>3622
Devilman Crybaby is flawed but worthwhile (just read the manga first), Spriggan is super underrated and anti-imperialist in a great way.
