I think we all know a lot of mecha is little more than trope-riddled soap opera trash designed to sell toys. But disregarding bad plots, what mecha shows have some of the best mechanical porn?

How the FUCK is it possible that there’s no general thread for quite possibly the most well-written and even leftist-oriented Shounen serial of the 2000s?

Wanted to make a general because I been tearing up listening to shit like this

Best anime soundtrack ever imo, easily tops even Jojo’s

>besides wanting to fuck envy

The writers knew this and decided to add in some male power fantasy, when they let Roy assrape Envy.
Personally, I find Envy resembles a little bratty boy too much, so fucking him was never an option

So, let's be clear:
Were these two living under a fascist military police state?
I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power. They even call the head of the goverment "The fuiër." Am I wrong /a/?

It's also worth noting that the state has nearly unlimited reach and potential. There are many instances were the military just barge into peoples homes for various reason with out probable cause. When Ed and Major Armstrong go to that village and encounter Dr. Mooreo; After being denied access to information on the Dr's research into the philosophers stone Armstrong mentions "You could have taken it by force you know." Which really cements the unlimited potential of the state. That's not some random soldier, or, Even ed or Ale.
That's a high ranking military commander.


>TBH I never understood the hype for this show.
&ltIt had some cool moments and animation and a decent story, but if you listen to some people talk about it you'd think it was the second coming of christ.
&ltOften enough they're also HxH fags as well.
Your question is too vague but I'll try to answer it.
•The characters have fun, interesting and cool personalities with enough complexity to keep the audience engage.
•The setting and power system are detailed and unique enough for it to stand out from the crowd.
•The series is long enough convey it story properly and doesn't overstay it's welcome.
•The plot doesn't trip over itself and goes to shit.
•It's dark but still hopeful.
•It's "anime" but not too "anime" for a general audience making it great for beginners.

There are more reasons but I made my point. It's a very well rounded series which can be enjoyed by a wide audience.


I mean there was a general thread, the OP was just a retard who didn't put FMA or Full Metal Alchemist in the subject or content and so you miss it in catalog.

I’d say they were in a sort of “fringe case” regime where we don’t know enough about how the political system functioned for sure to say it was specifically a fascist (palingenetic ultra-nationalist) regime; but from everything we’ve seen they certainly appear to be some form of military dictatorship (when Mustang talks about usurping Bradley he never mentions an election)
>I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power
I wouldn’t say FMA *glorifies* Amestris; after all Amestris itself and the people that lead it are the main antagonists. The Ishavalan Genocide is explicitly enough of a reason to overthrow the entire government and Amestris is portrayed as an aggressive, imperialistic power. The real question about the leanings of the show depend on whether you think the homunculi represent (((somebody))) or whether they represent something else.

SBR is overrated.


The Voynich Hotel




rec threads are shit but whatever, this board reeks of reddit with all the e-celeb, dump threads and incredibly surface level analyses of shallow to begin with shows so might as well go with the flow




Midori Days is nice, but the anime is better TBH.

Rent a Girlfriend is decent but blue-balls you for too long for my taste.

What is on your watchlist?

Definitely going to watch:
>Re zero season 2

&ltMany years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.
>Monster musume no oishasan
&ltIn the town of Lindworm where monsters and humans coexist, Dr. Glenn runs an exemplary medical clinic for monster girls with his lamia assistant, Sapphee. Whether receiving a marriage proposal by a centaur injured in battle, palpating the injury of a mermaid, or suturing the delicate wounds of a flesh golem, Dr. Glenn performs his job with grace and confidence. But when an unsavory character seeks to steal a harpy egg, how will the unflappable Dr. Glenn respond…?
>Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e

Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future.

Are you sure you're responding to the right post?


Kodachi is stepping down from Boruto after Chapter 52 comes out with Kishimoto coming back. Too bad it's far too late for Kishi to save the story.


Iruma is the gift that keeps on giving.


Is that list full of random series or stuff you genuinely want to see?


To answer this anons question 5 months later, mediocre but not terrible.

Is Naruto communist or fascist? Explain your reasoning


It's definitely idealist.


>world ruled by effete feudal lords
>entire story is about conflicts between clandestine their footsoldiers
>never questions the power of the daimyo, even when the entire world is about to be destroyed
Naruto is clearly feudalist.


USE The mother fucking Naruto thread you dull retards


It's just shit.

Please don't make me regret making this thread by posting some coomer shit.

What do you think about Ghost in the Shell? Do you think the political/technology critiques are valid or bullshit (I tend to see a lot of reactionary fans co-opt very leftist takes). Discuss.

Yeah it's sad what Dragon Ball has devolved into. It didn't used to be this bad, the fights were entertaining, there was some nice drama and heartfelt moments, cool themes, pervy moments, excellent worldbuilding, awesome Toriyama art, etc. of course it had problems (like Goku never maturing into a responsible person with a purpose other than "get stronger" and "have fun") but that's besides the point. Super meanwhile? The only thing I could praise is the occasional cool soundtrack, that's literally it.


File: 1608529128083.gif (942.6 KB, 500x281, external-content.duckduckg….gif)

Isnt that just nostalgia talking because you were watching it as a child? I started watching Dragon Ball in my early 20s, and I must say, overally Super is better show than Z. The fights are much better choreographed and animated now then they ever were. With the exception of Sayan invasion, they had all the same formula of villains completely dominate the heroes => heroes power up and dominate the villains => villains powers up and dominate the heroes =>heroes power up etc. etc. Fights were always completely one sided and the sides constantly kept switching. The animation during combat was like 5 frames looping.


Dragonball should have ended with Namek blowing up. That doesn't mean Super is good.


Obviously Mr.Popo

>fights are better choreographed/animated
Only because of the debacle with the movie where the fuckups were so obvious only the most inattentive missed them. Super had a bigger budget and isn't hand-drawn unlike DBZ. DBZ had some bad parts but it was overall really fun, if stupid at times… this is solved by having DBZA which is peak Dragon Ball.
