I'm watching the Karl Marx anime and I'm interested by the portrayal of the Capitalist not necessarily as a piggish or greedy miser but as almost a sort of Carnival barker, a showman.

I think that is interesting and actually a much better depiction of the Capitalist as opposed to Porky. Like a P.T. Barnum type figure that secretly knows the truth that Capitalism is exploitative and ultimately a scam, and must sell an ideology in order to keep the scam going.

Scams like "multi-level marketing" are known to most people by now, but that's only because they hide the truth, that Capitalism is fundamentally a scam. Both of them, of course, have the same advertising pitch: "you TOO can become wealthy! If you just play the game you too can join the ruling class!" Of course Hollywood put out a movie celebrating P.T. Barnum recently. Go figure.

>Porky comes from USSR just after WW1, when starvation was a very real problem. It was politically expedient to depict Capitalists as fat in that environment.
The Porky meme specifically comes from the early USSR, but the fat capitalist caricature comes from decades before. He's been a fatass with a top hat pretty much from the dawn of a (semi) mass English-language socialist press in the 1890s, and probably even before that in the Germany.

>I'm watching the Karl Marx anime
It's still worth watching, but it has some major, major flaws. The most inexplicable thing that I noticed is that Wilhelm Liebknecht features heavily in the episodes set in the 1870s - except that Liebknecht had been living in Germany for almost a decade at that point, and I don't think ever returned until Karl Marx's funeral in 1883. Also he looks fucking nothing like Liebknecht - maybe more like Bernstein, but he would also have been ahistorical in the time periods depicted.

Death of the Author sucks. It is cited almost exclusively by idiots and for the wrong reasons too.


Writing quality severely in some areas with some highlights. I think it would've been more fair for me to say pre-Kage summit to be in C tier and afterwards to be in D tier. But an example of what I'd consider bad writing is the ending of the Pain Invasion which, to me, was a fantastic arc with a horrible resolution making all of the stakes of the invasion meaningless.


Funniest post in the thread.

No reason for why it should be dismised for the review, (something that makes the review look as if the author wanted to hate the show); no reason for why it's bad; and no arguments on a "good" usage – all to handwave the rest of the comment.

Yea fair.
I still enjoyed it since it's the final turning point of Naruto's reputation – if the creator was allowed to kill more characters, and make this the final arc before Naruto vs Sasuke, it would've been much better.
Granted, some bullshit would've occured, since the original big 3 had to suffer from something.

Why does any fictiin depicting children/teens as main characters is always automatically called "pedophikia bait" or "unrelatable to proper adults"?


>This is an adult woman.
99% of Alunya images depicts her as a little kid and drawn as one since the first design


She's drawn as a short woman, one of the earliest designs of her aged at like 20

>haha this commercial product advocates for buying things
Hobbies are as old as the sun. Purchasing goods one can obtain for free isn't related to hobbies one bit. A line advocating the opposite would scarcely make it past the censors.


i-its not a REAL hobby


You're being either disingenuous or stupid. Eitherway not worth conversing with.


nice try

What made you change your mind?


The fact that it's been years so I'm not sure if I would think that if I rewatched it
