This black and white photo keeps being attributed (particularly on Chinese sites) as Fusako Shigenobu, founder/leader of the Japanese Red Army, but actually looks more like a photo from the set of Shoujo Commander Izumi.
Fusako Shigenobu is out of jail and in the news so here’s your reminder to stop using a production photo from Shoujo Commander Izumi when talking about her.


The only people who get it wrong are redditors and the like. Are you accusing us of being redditors? Hmmh?


people really thought it makes sense to wear a sailor uniform in the battlefield


Or wearing an ammo belt while wielding a bazooka.

Ok so here's the personality I'm thinking about adopting. Myself, the tall blonde mysterious man with deadly skills who goes by many names and has a lot of associates that are just as mysterious. She is a quiet and timid public servant whose beauty nobody notices because she dresses down and deflects attention but is actually an assassin martial artist with a murderous streak for men that are not myself.

You will know if you like it by watching some. I was going to pass but decided to watch things I normally wouldn't and actually have been enjoying it.


The first episode was pure kino, but it has been getting progressively worse (for me at least). My main gripe with it is how slowly the plot progresses. If you want to watch it, do keep in mind, that it isn't really a spy story, it's more like a happy, slice of life kind of show.

So video related has Erza fall into Lucy's pitfall trap by accident and I wonder if Eden's Zero does the same kind of constant on-the-go gags?
A few observations:
1: At the beginning, Erza says they couldn't possibly've missed it, implying that the scene was making an ironic jab at her not noticing the pitfall trap until it was too late; especially since, earlier in the episode proper, happy was telling Lucy she might be stupid to think that the pitfall trap would work because of how obvious it was.
2: The reason the guys were so surprised to hear her scream at such a traditionally femininely high pitch is because not only does she not usually act traditionally feminine, but her normal speaking voice is a good bit deeper than one traditionally expects of a woman.
3: The irony probably hasn't escaped her, but at the same time, she's probably at least putting a good show of not being embarrassed on, but more likely isn't embarrassed because she's not easily embarrassed, as her being the shameless fanservice girl of the team proves; seriously, most of her armor suits show at least a little skin, and about half of them leave her just about half naked. Not only that, but as the episode in which they work as cafe servers for a time shows us, she has no problems with posing seductively for men; and as both the hot spring scene, and the scene in which she threatens to have Natsu, Gray, and herself all take a bath together like when they were kids show, she has no problems with being seen naked.
4: Those "ah" and "wow" voiceovers seem to happen at random times for literally no reason other than either to provoke and equally random chuckle, or get people chuckling before the real joke of the scene becomes clear to provoke full on laughter from the audience.

Is it just me or do the female characters of Demon Slayer look like Fairy Tail females? Vid related is literally like Mirajane. Has the copy-format spread from Fairy Tail and Edens Zero to other media?


Despite kinda being mediocre its gotten a Season 2. At least its better than Samurai 8.

Having had a year or so to ruminate over thsis show and read some fanfics as alternate takes I have to say that Shield hero is an interesting show but like Arifureta undermines its dark, gritty premise with cutesy shit and stalled character development after the initial character arcs.


>Is it just Ayn Rand for weebs or is there a redeemable message in it?
It's Randian but has some interesting and redeeming aspects, overall a mix of good and bad in a mediocre worldbuild (that fanfics seem to expand much more).


finished watching shield hero (why did they name it the rising rather than the ascent?) a couple of weeks ago, and i have to say that while its world and ideas are weird, like for example how did a matriarchy even have the right to form if physical differences between men and women still exist in a medieval society, i like the story and the characters too much not to be excited for the second season. i'm looking forward to naofumi and the other heroes' growth, and i'm curious whether raphtalia gets over her separation anxiety enough for her to finally take the slave crest off. i also wonder how shield is going to manage his region, and why are the waves a thing in the first place.


>(why did they name it the rising rather than the ascent

Americans don't know what "ascent" means


Because shitty LN translations are par for the course.

Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

Well that was bad. Wasted potential as it's usual with many shows.

Most baffling parts were the deuteragonist working the big rich mafia guy that pits the poor to kill each other as a sport among other things and the "if you kill him you'll be as bad as him" at the end. Then there's the convenient powers the main couple exhibit to solve the big issue at the end.

Trigger hasn't been good since it was called Gainax, huh.

I feel that BNA failed because unlike Beastars ( >>9810 ) or even My Gym Partner's a Monk- I mean Seton Academy, they don't really embrace the animal side of their ANIMAL anime. Even Killing Bites ( >>5136 ) is better at using that shit.


File: 1639431691896.png (527.91 KB, 852x1080, ClipboardImage.png)

BNA is just pure mediocrity rather than anything good. It had a few really good explorations of 'if a character could turn into a beast form, what would they use it for? What would it do to their social standing/normie friends?' I was hoping it'd explore that more but it went for some dumb religion/political corruption angle instead. None of its characters are that interesting, though the ones that I liked don't get the development.

The ep where Michiru leaves the city and just uses her rare time as a human enjoying being a regular girl with a friend of hers was a rare well written ep and showed what they could've done if they tried harder. The baseball ep was wild fun but could've been in any Trigger show. It being in this seemed especially weird cuz why would their weird death baseball be a popular sport in a world which seems relatively peaceful other than crime? I assume regular people are like the mom and pop Michiru lives with, and I don't see them enjoying televised murder.

The writing is extremely uneven. The fourth (or sixth? can't remember) episode, the one where Michiru hangs out with her dolphin friend on the mainland, stands out as utter dogshit and gets shockingly bad. Both the writers and to some extent the animators seem to have given up on that one.

The show never knows whether it wants to be slice of life or ridiculous action, and for that one ep it calmed down and you thought hey, maybe beastpeople CAN live outside the city providing they can keep it a secret. The story obviously goes straight back to the city after and the usual dumb shit, with Nazuna I thought the show could go back there but nahhh enjoy more HEY WE'RE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST BAWWW. Then the bullshit revelations with the wolf guy and wow fuck this show.


It seems to be a returning theme that half the furry anime produced either fails or turns to shit.


Seton Academy (the manga) was so good but by the end the author kept using the same terrible jokes and dragging it out. Still enjoyed it fwiw.


True, but like you say I still enjoyed it, cuz they didn't take themselves too seriously. Also Kemokko Dobutsuen now that I think about it. T-Rex no Kanojo is cut short, but I believe it applies too. >>14721

These two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime, everyone loves them, yet they are such fucking garbage, literal trash, why are they so fucking bad holy shit.
And I watched it when I was a kid and even then I HATED it, I had a friend who also watched DBZ and he hated it too, even we who were just two little dumbass kids could recognize how shit this cartoon was. And dont get me started on Super.
Naruto is just as bad if not worse, they somehow contradict their own message every god damn time, and have a little privileged retarded kid as the main character who was born with le epic god powers, and never works a day in his life to achieve anything, its all just handed to him

>Genndy does communication with animation
non-sequitur and I like that you ignore Genndy having jut as much exposition as any shonen. You can have both, idiot. Bleach does have this issue though, as half the cast is constantly making stoic "cool" faces in nearly every interaction.
>haracters ranting for dozens of minutes straight about whatever new tactics they’re thinking of.
Yeah ok you're demonstrating that you haven't watched the show. The longest explanation of tactics I can recall in Naruto takes less than 5 minutes and is AFTER the tactics/plan is demonstrated in full.
>so many fucking minutes explaining why you should give a shit about whatever the fuck the characters are feeling
LMAO are you retarded? Or do you no comprehend that anime is a visual-audio media, not pure visual, and that real life people… talk, people don't just rely on facial expressions to communicate
>what their new chakra soul power ultra
They don't explain that though, you retard, it's literally the opposite of that since their increase in power is demonstrated and then internal or external exposition by characters enunciate and clarifies what happens, (pic 2 related).
>having some pink haired bitch explaining their pasts to me
LMAO Sakura barely ever talks about her past or gets long moments at all. What are you on, must be some good dope if those are your delusions.
>all without needing a word spoken
Yeah no, You cannot tell a story like Gaara's pain and suffering and not have a word spoken, Moreover in Naruto it is literally a PLOT POINT that characters that connect can understand one another and not use words, but for the audience they speak in their minds, ergo the infamous "Narutoooo" "Sasukeeee" meme.

TL;DR: screaming "Muh words" and again massively exaggerating is pathetic and demonstrates your autism.


Lolis and lolicons.

>they treat the workers like garbage
<Did ya know in Japan, a capitalist country that is famous for karoshi and horrifically overstrict and toxic work culture in every single industry and job, also abuses animators!?
Yeah, no shit they treat laborers like trash, they treat most of the population like that, same in Korea and China, it's part of a deeply ingrained workaholic culture in Far-East Asia. There is an entire THREAD dedicated to this topic IN DEPTH if you bothered to check catalog >>617

Disregarding this, the statement is also an utter nonsequitur as a criticism of shonen in general and Naruto in particular, if you didn't notice. I'd also point out that this overwork impacts the creators of the manga just as it does their underlings, thus Oda is sick all the time, Yamaguchi becoming ill and dying, and Hunter x Hunter and Bleach being on indefinite hiatus until recently.

>jojo style


Recently some tool made a video crying about Coco being anti-immigrant and insulting to Mexicans and so many liberals applauded like shit-eating pissants, it's hilarious - shit like Black Panther comes out and has reactionary shit and typical aesthetics of tribal Africa, no lib bats an eye. Pixar spends millions getting consultants and hires people of a specific culture to tell a story focused in that culture, they go batshit about "appropriation" and shit (themselves).


>I fucking hate """Lucoa""" from Kobayashi's Dragon Maid
I don't hate it because I just feel indifferent, it's just that far divorced from actual dragons and stuff. I do find Dragon Maid extremely generic Moeshit; Senko-san is at least better in that respect.


There was a Luchador anime I remember from some time ago, does anyone know of it?


The show about evil lesbian dragon girls is more generic than a show about the most popular monster girl after catgirls falling down on the lap of some salaryman out of nowhere for some ~healing~?

It was always weird to me that both of these exist and are so different in every way.
I think you would find nobody that prefers the first one over Ultimate.
But for me Hellsing was always great in alot of unique ways the main problem it has is story.
If you only watch Hellsing you will have no idea what the fuck is even going on for some odd reason they dont explain the most basic principles.
Hellsings Seras will always have a special place in my heart
So lets talk Hellsing(Ultimate)tankieTankie

Original Hellsing blows Ultimate out of the water. It was written by the writer of Serial Experiments Lain. When I watched Ultimate I didn't finish it because I was too enraged how they had ruined Seras's character and turned her into an annoying Genki girl and had ceased to make the story revolve around her struggles with becoming a vampire. Hellsing with the villains from Ultimate would have been great, but alas.

This is why Original Hellsing places no dramatic weight on the exploits of Alucard and he's basically a side-character and all the real "plot" is Seras's personal struggles (also he's less overpowered in the first place)


What's your opinion of the FREAK Chips?

Hellsing Ultimate is what hooked me into watching anime. There is nothing quite like it out there. Not much in terms of story, most of the show takes place during a single night. It is carried by characters and visuals. Animation is absolutely gorgeous, every frame is like a painting.

The original Hellsing was literally the first two episodes of Ultimate stretched into entire season. Plus something about werewolves, I dont remember what that was about. I think it was just another Nazi transformation plan, the same as artificial vampires. I did appreciate the character stuff with Seras thought. And the OST was the bomb, really wish they used it in Ultimate.



Hellsing Ultimate is more like an exploitation film and that's why I liked it more, but both are good and worth watching.
