I find it very amusing and fun to see that anime movies are free on youtube and are easily available to donload.


Does anyone even still remember Inuyasha, like actually remember it and not the memery of the 2000s?


I don't know what memery you're talking about, I just remember it airing often on TV


I think at some point Takahashi just mistook Koga for Ryoga.


Makes sense.

Inuyasha memery in regards to "le dog fucker" and some other stuff.

The novel is the source material, and yes it had Satou abusing drugs. The manga is kinda bad in that it destroys the character development of the main girl in a single page. You'll understand if you read it.


>You'll understand if you read it.
Refresh my memory.


>I know in the show he was sniffing glue or something when his mum walked in on him jacking off
When tf did this happen


nhk's ending was kinda spooky on it's own so i'm not surprised the author has some weird beliefs


That didn't happen in the anime adaptation. That scene was used in the manga adaptation and it wasnt glue he was snorting up drugs through a straw. It probably is in the light novel source.

When I was a wee lad I read Katawa Shoujo and ended up really liking Emi. She hit all the right spots for me personality wise. I finished her route with the impression that she was supposed to be the token tomboy among the main girls. To my astonishment, when I went on the Katawa Shoujo forum I found out that other people did not consider her a tomboy. How? She's the athletic, bold, energetic girl who likes to play rough. Did I not just describe a tomboy? Is it because she doesn't "look" like a tomboy? Ridiculous. It was as if at some point I had been transported to bizarro world where the word tomboy had been hijacked by pathetic fetishists who now tied the word tomboy to physical appearance.

As the years went by I found myself highly attracted to 2D girls with varying types of what are culturally seen as masculine qualities. Like the aforementioned athletic, bold, energetic, likes to play rough but also aggressive, assertive, emotionally reserved, brash, vulgar, messy, short-tempered, rhetorical, analytical, philosophical, gluttonous, as lustful as a man and so on. In other words, women who behave like the worst and best of male cultural stereotypes. Do they "look" like tomboys? Some do. But even then I have nothing in common with the pathetic fetishists, the most egregious and possibly loudest of which circlejerk over 2D girls who only "look" like tomboys and otherwise do not deviate much from the assumed average girl who on top of that unironically fantasize about turning said "tomboy" into a traditional 1950s cooking, breeding and raising servant (read: wife).

Don't believe me? Give a definition for the word tomboy. Then objectively think of all the fictional girls who come to your mind that fit that definition. How many have you never thought of as tomboys?

It's not just the word tomboy that is being systematically destroyed by pathetic fetishists. The word gyaru did not simply refer to physical appearance alone, but a whole subculture. To be a gyaru it's not enough to dress the part, you also have to act the part else you're a poser right? That's how subcultures work. Gals are stereotypically vain, airheaded, trendy, extroverted, socially intelligent, gold diggers, Americaboos and so on. Today? Shy gyaru. Awkward gyaru. Recluse gyaru. Tomboy gyaru. Normal girl gyaru. Otaku gyaru. Of course a character turning out to be different from expectation is funny on the occasion, but when every gyaru is effectively a poser gyaru thPost too long.

Doesn't the Gyaru concept kinda disprove this?
Its more situational than that IMO. >>639


>Doesn't the Gyaru concept kinda disprove this?
You posted an artist who is a prime example of that
He and like many other asian artists love to give masculine characters dark skin as in darker than the girl even darker than gyarus in many examples
It's literally a fact that many asian cultures see being dark skin is a masculine trait
And gyarus are a whole other can of worms
Like the idea of having dark skin = being unpure and tainted


"Tanned=outdoorsy/sporty" is not that different from "short-haired=masculine" in a sense, it's obviously something that isn't strictly true but it was used often enough that the association became ingrained in the minds of the anime audience. If you're trying to get a character's personality across with a single drawing, which is something that both Internet artists and professional character designers often have to do, you have to make use of this kind of association even when it doesn't make sense (like when a character is naturally dark-skinned).
And there might be some imported exoticism from the West regarding African and indigenous people as being less civilized – which can come across as more masculine – but I wonder how much of a factor that is.
>And gyarus are a whole other can of worms
>Like the idea of having dark skin = being unpure and tainted
Gyaru is a real fashion style and not just a character archetype, so I think looking at it this way is wrong. People who dress in a certain way don't do it because they want to project a negative image of themselves. Even if there is exoticism at play here too, it's not like real gyarus think of themselves as "tainted".

He had a brother.


Protoman counts as his brother right?


I don't care that they aren't biological, they're still brothers

Also when JoJo part 7 gets animated in a decade I will post a pic of Johnny and his brother




Roy Fokker is basically Hikaru's older brother

one funny thing about Re:Zero is Nagatsuki’s mild lolicon restrained sufficiently by taste or popularity to avoid any Made In Abyss shit manifests as one of the only medieval fantasies I’ve read to humanely represent something like Philippe Aries’ vision of premodern childhood. this vision may have been, in fact (per DeMause), a fantasy, but that makes it all the more interesting to incorporate into the idealized "Middle Ages" of a fantasy novel


"Anime/Manga is like Weimar classicism in the sense of often combining a very conservative bourgeois/feudal, even to the point of out right cozy, setting with the uncanny and the deviant. There is more of Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre, in say, NGE then in anything Disney will ever produce.
It is not because Americans are “sexually repressed” (lol) or less twisted by the memories of fascistic violence (double lol).
Rather it is because both Germany and Japan, unlike America, raise(d) modernization to the level of a conscious project juxtaposed against the mental domestic home of premodern realities, and entertain(ed) the hope that somehow one could combine the mos mairorum in the very midst of the storm of technological/capitalistic becoming.
Americans, right and left, have by contrast mostly gotten by with half assed confusion of the two methods of processing reality without understanding the beauty, the charms and the tragedy of their real distinctiveness. One could qualify this that communities historically diagonal to the main civic religion of Protestant flavored deism overlaid on dollar and nuke hegemony may parallel the mental atmosphere and affective disposition of insurgent/sentry state capitalist nations.


so this person saying 1st world states(being america) kind of half ass this mentality but relate to the mentality of hanging on to the premodern while they the non-American country groomed into a capitalist nation state

You ever think about the strangeness of DBS's Mirai Trunks and Future Mai pairing? To explain, Mai is a character from the original Dragon Ball Z back in the first Season literally, and roughly of the same age as Bulma. She got de-aged at one point in Super I think, but as a personality she's still the same mental age as Bulma by that point in the alternate Zamasu future. Future Trunks at that time is Chronologically 30 and Biologically 32 (due to Time-Chamber shenanigans), Bulma is nearly 2x that at 62 and Mai is supposed to be Biologically 30 in that future, but chronologically she is 60 (She's chronologically 41 and Biologically 11 during the God of Destruction Beerus Saga, 19 years before the Future Zamasu timeline). So basically she's mentally 2x Trunk's age. I don't knock it, but it's kinda funny to realize.

Sorry to telling you this but…Mai is OLDER than Bulma…if you watched original db, she looked like an adult while Bulma was a teenager.


She looks and acts older, but apparently she's a little younger.

My belief has always been that 18 is partly there to fill in the void left by Launch. They're both beautiful blonde's living at Kame house, with a troubled past and a mean streak. Both characters are voiced by the same actress in the funimation dub (Meredith McCoy). Clearly there is a strong connection between the two, even though they never meet. In fact, I think that's exactly why they never meet, because they are too similar. That's why 18 replaced Launch. I also believe that the romance between 18 and Krillin is the belated resolution of the failed romance arch between Launch and Tien. Of course I can't prove that, but we all have to try and make sense of Toriyama's chaotic brain somehow and I haven't heard any better theories.
>There is no actual connection between Launch and 18!
When I say that 18 is there to replace Launch, I mean that from the perspective of trying to unravel Toriyama's "subconscious". Toriyama didn't consciously replace Launch with 18, neither did he have the Tien-Launch romance consciously in mind when he made 18 and Krillin a couple. What I'm saying is that this is something he did without realizing it. Additionally, I do think there is a deeper similarity between the characters themselves. Both Launch and 18 are typically rather cold/stand-offish and only show their soft side at rare moments. They were both delinquents/criminals in the past. That's what I meant by "mean streak". They both have a sadistic side as well, not just a temper like ChiChi and Bulma do. Their relationship with master Roshi and the Z fighters is also similar. And it's definitely not true that almost every character lived at Kame house the way Krillin, 18 and Launch did, taking more or less permanent residence there.


Fan theories aside the real reason Toriyama forgot Launch existed is because he forgets shit all of the time and is an awful, repetitive and tropey writer. He forgot about Chi-Chi for most of Dragon Ball before shoving her into a pseudo-shotgun wedding near the end with a mentally challenged boy.

Any Furuya Minoru fans here? I think /leftypol/ would like their work.

I think my favorite is Boku To Issho. Fucking hilarious. It's about these two brothers that become homeless after their parents die and then they team up with this other kid who's a veteran homeless kid and their struggles with survival.


>Tomioka Yuji is a 32-year-old night-shift guard for mall. He works completely alone, so he often slacks off, exercising and hanging out on the roof. In some ways, the job is perfect for him, as he's always been terrible with people. However, he can't help feeling incredibly lonely and wishing he had friends.
Another good one.

>Ciguatera thor of Ping Pong Club and Himizu, though less comedic than the former and less soul-crushingly depressing than the latter.


This one is kind of depressing. They made this one into a live action movie never seen it tho.

Post your 3x3 or whatever other autistic grid you have.

For everyone who doesn't engage in the anime community, a 3x3 is your 9 favourite anime (or favourite anime of a certain theme or genre or maybe even your favourite screenshots that share a colour) arranged like this. For autists on /a/ it is a holy artform.

I continue to see a disingenuous narrative being pushed.


mushishi is a cheap adaption of a manga that was entirely sold on static background art, it has no animation

tatami galaxy and flcl are the best anime of all time though, dumb contrarian maymay •`π'•


>dumb contrarian maymay
its just making fun of 3x3 threads where people are supposed to share their tastes and learn from others but end up posting the same shit every time rather than the shows in it

What do you think of the color of my 3x3? There's a theme going on here which focuses on the color yellow. This is my holy artform. I took a while to arrange them in a 3x3 format. The combinations are endless.

Some retard tried to copyright troll yukkuris and a law office got death threats from Touhou fans, all in Japan.

>Yuzuha first claimed on Twitter that fans would have to pay 100,000 yen (about US$770) for a license agreement. She later retracted that statement, but still claimed trademark rights. However, fans criticized Yuzuha because as of October 2020, YouTube channel Touhou Danmaku Kagura staff had confirmed with the ASCII art creator, the illustrator, and ZUN that anyone could freely use "Yukkuri Chabangeki."



Based death threat enjoyers


>Subsequently, a person, who claimed that they were involved in this matter surrounding Yuzuha, sent a message to a web portal around the law office's area that read "Multiple bombs have been placed there. They will explode around 3 p.m." The Yamaman Yukarigaoka Line and the community Koala Bus were temporarily suspended on May 16 at around 2:00 p.m. The law office posted on their website that same day, "We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by not knowing that the trademark is beloved by everyone."
And they say violence doesn't solve anything.
