I just had a realization I cant think of a single bara anime, or never saw as much as a clip from one. Straight romance, yaoi or yuri is popular, and I guess the potential audience for a specifically gay men focused genre is smaller, but is it really so small it wouldnt warrant even a single one made?

No because it turns into bishie anime after a while, making it in aggregate a feminization anime.

I'm like a month late but a Mawaru Penguindrum movie was announced that's going to recap the 24 ep series. What are your thoughts on Penguindrum and Ikuhara's works in general?

Has anyone else been reading Groundless? it's a really interesting military themed manga, about a small island at war. It manly fallows a small city's militia team while fighting with the main island army against the Liberation Army. I'm only half way through but it seems to go back a forth from the different factions while focusing on the small militia. I think the depiction of the Liberation Army is interesting, it's very bare bones compared to everyone else but it's clearly suppose to be the revolutionary army. it also has a very real depiction of racism.

 No.18516

How does it compare to reminiscences of the Cuban revolution?

 No.18533

>>18516
after reading all that's translated it's probably more comparable to the IRA. there main focus is independence from mainland control but again the manga's interesting because it doesn't really focus on them.

i'm going to analysis the Liberation army in this manga cause like i said no one seems to be reading this thing. their main ideology was written you by the commanding leader Livinda Giovovich, it's very broad in terms of philosophy, if anything it's comparable to Egoism, i think it's just supposed to be a stand in for liberty which is pretty general. it feels like it's a bourgeois revolution, but none the less they are the resistance. their main problem is losing support from the public because all they say in response is "believe in the revolution", and that's not holding peoples merit. i like to think it's a comment on how leftist focus on revolution over other things. none the less the manga is not completely about them, it's about a small city vigilantly group and while they work for the mainland you get the feeling their caught in the middle. over all it's a underrated manga, and I hope more leftist would read it, cause i think there's alot to analysis.

I really love the WW2/in-between war aesthetic it has despite being a fictional world. sadly it's not fully translated and the scanlations are taking their precious time.

Ideal age gap romance is 30-something woman banging a teenager.

It's worse in everyway except accesability, (unless it's an iphone).
Except of course if the manga is designed purely for the phone like korean mangas.

There's something nice about watching anime on youtube. Maybe I'm biased because that's how I used to watch it back when I was first discovering what it was all about, but bumping into a series of some random older anime uploaded whole on a nobody's youtube channel always felt like discovering someone's hideout

You see a lot of westerners saying shit like "Japan only acknowledges what happened to them, you'll never see any type of Japanese media talking about their crimes", but even Baki's Itagaki who's a big patriot acknowledges the rape of Nanking.
Garouden is mainstream, Kakugo no Susume is mainstream, Yokoyama's Mars is mainstream.
When's the last time a MCU movie talked about US war crimes?

Here's my suggestion. Start a thread: "Understanding Japan" and just focus on answering other people's questions about the country and explaining what you see. Part of the description might be "you have to live in Japan to understand Japan."

It doesn't matter if Murayama made a statement several decades ago if the more recent Prime Ministers like Shinzo Abe go out publicly and say that there was no such thing a forced prostitution, that its somehow not clear if Japan was an aggressor in WWII, etc.
