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)

Well than its nice meetin you here


One Punch Man is the best rebuttal to Hellsing


I'm interested tell me more


It's about a guy who wins every fight without trying, just like Hellsing. Except there's actually some tension and clever writing.


One man punch is pretty good

that's really well animated but aikido is such a gay martial art


What is it about that you identify as aikido?


the arm slaps and the throws


Seems more like Xing Yi Quan or Baguazhang to me. Does aikido even focus on pressure point shit?

What are some anime that are better than the manga they're adapted from? Starting with an obvious one.

Why does it seem so uncommon?


I don't know if it's necessarily better, but let's say the 2011 Anime Adaption of Hunter X Hunter was more successful in pulling in new fans, than the Manga was


Utena and Ping Pong for sure. NHK is better than the manga but worse than the novel. Also Mob Psycho and Jujutsu Kaisen because the sakuga makes an otherwise boring story worth watching IMO
It depends. It's definitely far better once Togashi gets too lazy to draw, but they also rushed the first few arcs a tad too much


Dragon Ball Super
It just isn't the same without akira toriyama drawing.


That's like putting perfume on a pig.

I suppose it could be kind of like Gall Force. Doesn't seem like it though.

What is your guys opinion on Vagabond and how can a deaf Man such as Kojiro be such a Gigachad

I've had the torrent downloaded for maybe 2 years now for both of these manga, but I got caught up in berserk.
Which do I read first?


Whichever you like. Since this thread is about Vagabond, maybe you want to start with it

When will Inoue decide to draw again? It's been over 5 years. I want to see the final battle between Musashi and Kojiro.


>duhh this manga in the MAL top 10 is actually very obscure and not for casuals
Real is far better.


Real is better in fact, but that doesn't make Vagabond bad. Imo Inoue doesn't even know to write bad manga

Can he be considered the greatest Anime Director ever or does the Crown still go to Miyazaki?

If he is, what makes puts his work in a class of his own?
If he is not, why do you think he is overrated?

Who makes an animated film about regular people doing regular things? Why not just make it live action?


> radlib



To show off your animating skillz


Some things can only be expressed through animation. Satoshi Kon is widely known for cutting his own films, and the cuts themselves are much shorter and thus convey more information than what is feasibly possible in live action film.


Not him, but i find that the themes of escapism and consumerism or whatever that permeate his work are treated in too straightforward and near-sighted a manner. It's probably the biggest reason why Perfect Blue has become a staple of the pretentious weeb canon, it's critical of it's own audience but more in a conservative way that's supposed to fill you with pure disgust rather than actually make you think about the distinction between the real and virtual or whatever. Tokyo Godfathers is good kino tho

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


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


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

This is really cool, and good work posting those indeed.

>Japanese Left

Never sure what to make of the Japanese New Leftists. ThEy seem to embody both the worst and the best things of the New Left generation. Regardless, their history seems very interesting, so there should be more posted about that here, if it's not off topic to do so.

Wish I could help with the translating, but I can't. :-(

You are most welcome! Again I hope scanlators will pick it up at some point; do please share it with other people.
Yeah, scholarship on Japanese Old/New Left movements are pretty scarce. Aside from Gavin Walker and Patricia G. Steinhoff, there are few contemporary English-speaking scholars who're actually talking about them. From a cursory glance, New Left schisms from the JCP seem very similar to the Trotskyist splinter sects from CPUSA just a few decades prior only much, much more violent. I'm sure a Paul Le Blanc type figure could write a multi-volume series on them alone. Gavin Walker actually has a new book that came out recently; it contains translations of essays on the "Japanese '68"—here's an epub.


What's that second picture supposed to mean?


I wish I could tell you.


Bumping for interest.

I've had difficulty suspending my disbelief with Dr. Stone more and more lately, but this character is really stretching it close to the breaking point.
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Yeah that isn't Suika. This is a new character that just happened to get unpetrified independently of everyone else at almost the same time as everyone else and just happens to have a useful set of skills the team needs.


For me it's the incredible overload of characters to keep track of: the cast of Dr. Stone is practically a fashion show at this point.

Technology progression is also ridiculous at times in a way that really strains the reader's credulity. Apparently Senku is such a turbo genius he apparently knows an improved form of chemical vapor deposition for making diamonds, and the entire team is so gosh darn amazing at craftsmanship they can convert one form of complicated machinery to another while being chased.


The writer wasn't a hentai author, it's seems that was only the illustrator.


Then I have no idea why the fuck it's like this.


Elaborate on the hentai logic thing because it makes sense, but doesn't make sense at the same time.

>mfw when bitch about nobuhiro watsuki or other mangaka that support nobuhiro watsuki because he got convicted of having CP

imo if he didn't make it and he didn't actually molest any children then it's totally whatever. if all he did was wack it to pictures in the privacy of his own home then it isn't really anyone else's business

pedos gonna phile and prosecuting and ostracizing them when no one at all was hurt is ridiculous. even if you wanna make the argument that making the cp hurt the child, unless watsuki-sensei was the one that made it he hasn't harmed anyone.

it's retarded that he had to pay 200,000 yen fines for having naked girls on his computer when if he had a hd full of pictures of corpses no one would give a shit

If you're under 18 you are a child.
Having sex with a significantly older adult when you are under 18, like say any more than 2 or 3 years older might seem fine at the time, to your' developing young brain, but chances are that it will fuck you up. Even people in the age of 18/19 or early 20's can be manipulated/exploited much easier by older adults with more life experience, so even this pairing carries with it certain risks.
You say "under 14 years old children" I am assuming because you masturbate to 14 year olds and possibly younger children. It is important to note that sex between a 14-17 year old child and a much older adult is bound to have a very large power differential, and it is a recipe for trauma and possibly heartbreak for the child. It is likely the adult in this situation is interested primarily because "their partner" is a still developing child. Realizing this and getting discarded by your abuser, whom you may have even thought loved you, later on is one of the most damaging effects of childhood sexual abuse. Not to mention that people who sexually abuse children cannot in principle or in actuality obtain any degree of consent from the children they sexually exploit.
Sex between adults and children of any age is always exploitative.
Sex between adults and children of any age is always harmful.

Listen pedophiles, the truth is simple if you are honest with yourself.
You cannot choose whether you will develop a sexual attraction to children, perhaps you could say the same thing of necrophiliacs or those with an intense drive to rape, what you can choose is how you will deal with these drives.
Our mother nature is brutal and unfair, human beings and other social animals by contrast possess knowledge of morality and the ability to reproduce it.
Taking no actions to quench your desires may end up in you committing a sexual offense, it is your' task to deal with your pedophilic desires in a healthy way, it is society's task to provide you with the resources you may require to overcome the urge to abuse children. Should you fail in this task, it is society's task to hold you accountable for your actions, and for you, to accept your fate.


listen retard I was shitting on that poster who brought up "everyone does fucked up shit at some point" which isn't very relevant to the topic of child pornography. I said children under 14 because that poster can't possibly deny that at that age, being sexualized by adults is unambiguously fucked up no matter how you look at it, unlike with, say, 17 year olds who are just about to turn 18, which he argues is no big deal.
I actually agree with you that a even a very young adult can easily suffer more with a much older partner than with one around their own age, and it often happens.

But chill the fuck out my man. I hate pedo apologists too but you gotta tone it down a little, else you risk being blinded by that rage.


>but chances are that it will fuck you up
where are the proofs billy


>Also, what the fuck is wrong with americans
At least in this instance, decades upon decades of hysterical screeching from their media about how pedophilia is the worst thing ever and that pedophiles are lurking in every shadow just frothing to get at their children.
