About to finish AoT. Never been sensitive but felt disgusted watching this. What started as good horror turn out to be hilarious nazi apology and rightoid wet dream. Whole show is about genetically different race of super warriors who's being hated by whole world for being too cool and powerful. Which is obvious allegories for Japan Empire and somewhat Nazi Germany. So this race is so baddass it even conceded out of mercy after conquering other races. And other races are so weak they had to use those super people for their wars. What in real life is persecution for war crimes, here is portrayed as blind and wrong discrimination, even tho crimes are not denied. By the end plot comes down to whitewashing literal nationalism. Can't believe this got so much praise.

Let's see
>Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15
>Best friend Griffith is a social climbing piece of shit who has to murder and scheme to almost make it to the top, even then the ruling class tells him to go fuck himself and he has to sell his soul to the devil and murder all his friends to finally make it
>The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition
>The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses

I wouldn't trust someone randomly posting one untranslated page, BUT
<supposedly Miura had finished the manuscript, meaning the story/plot was his, but the layouts and dialogue aren't all his
<the announcement in YA is that they still aren't sure if they are going to continue
So whatever this issue has is Miura's in the broad strokes, and it's not a conclusion.

Yeah ok that's not at all what happened. This is the beginning of the interaction they have and it comes right at the end of the chapter. Either Griffith's next move is to leave through the magic highway or he has a conversation with Guts + Casca like on the hill of swords (probably the latter). The last panel mirrors one of the last panels of the Black Swordsman arc, as they are both the first time we see either the Black Swordsman or the White Hawk showing an actual emotion. The difference is with Griffith it's not genuine. It's the last remnant of moonboy as he transforms back into Griffith. The point is that he really doesn't have any emotion left, and the only way he feels anything is when he's effectively being possessed by someone else. With Guts it's a crack in the facade of manliness showing that he really is human after all. Also yes apparently this chapter was mostly Miura's work, with the assistants finishing it up for publication.

 No.9959

Well they announced Duranki is officially canceled, but no news on Berserk. This suggests one of these scenarios:
<It's undecided what's going to happen
<They are going to try to finish it
There's no real reason not to announce Berserk's cancelation if that's already decided. My guess is Studio Gaga is moving on from the manga that was created to train them for Berserk and going to try doing Berserk. They will have to figure out the internal structure of how to organize the team for that, and they may lose some of the artists who may have creative differences. Berserks was always led by 1 person with a clear vision, so pivoting to a team-based structure would be logistically challenging. If they are going to continue it will take time for them to figure out their process and might include a trial run like Miura's prototype for Berserk. Even if everyone at Studio Gaga walks out on the project out of respect (which I doubt would align with Miura's wishes), there's too much money to be made on the franchise (especially now), so it's inevitably going to continue. We might see some kind of spin-off or flashback arc before a continuation of the story. It would be appropriate timing considering the parallel between the end of 364 and the end of the Black Swordsman arc pointed out here >>9937

> I think the racism against people with animal ears thing is one of the most hilariously stupid ideas I've ever seen in this kind of work

I could see it being a thing in a world where you have these fucked up monsters running around. Even without that, if you've got capitalism, you're going to need a section of the workforce to hyper-exploit, ala the Irish, Africans, Jews, etc. I could see some rich, powerful people choosing the faunuses as that, making the argument that their animal features made them sub-human, and thus okay to exploit. Or if they had some kind of connection to the monsters (Hollows?), or were scapegoated as such.

But yeah, people not liking them just because they have cute anime ears or tails or whatever? No, not really. I mean, just look at Blake, a stereotypical kawaii-nekojin waifu. I find it extremely hard to believe that anyone's going to discriminate against that. Enslave and make into harem fodder? Sure. Make sit at the back of the bus? Not so much.

I've only seen the first season though because that's all that's dubbed in Japanese and I can't stand the English voices.

Faunus are badly done in general: what's the point of having two sets of ears like Blake? Horns and tails are alright, but two additional ears? What's the point? I guess it was hard to hide Blake's real nature in S1 if she only had her cat ears, so now almost every faunus has both human and animal ears.

Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

I know this is a joke but goddamn if it ain't stupid.
Kakuzu did it for money, Hidan was a blood-thirsty sadomasochist, Hidan and Deidara were "artists" and Orochimaru was one out of curiosity, Zetsu was a grand manipulator that sought to free his mother. Kisame enjoyed his work, even if he simply sought a world without lies, Itachi was there to keep Madara under control (originally he was just a psycho). Out of all of them only Nagato (Pain) and Konan, who were from the original Akatsuki, wanted >the power of the tailed beasts for peace.
to generate an illusion that creates world peace
None of them were aware of this plan Madara had other than Obito.
>No more private property, states, classes, money
Except that's not it at all, the Infinite Tsukiyomi gave every individual their own perfect dream based on their desires, and none of them that we see exclude any of the stated things. It was the status quo but idyllic. Moreover the whole point is it's a dream and it's promises a lie. It's like an organic Matrix.
>living in the utopia generated by the productive forces of their minds
That's not my utopia, when nothing is real and nothing matters, nothing is made, and we don't really go anywhere. It reminds me of that episode of Star Trek, when Moriarty becomes sentient and is sent into a program that lets him explore the world of Star Trek through a computer simulation, but
A) He is not aware of it being a simulation
B) He was never a real person able to live a real physical life to begin with.

The recent episode 210 of Boruto follows up on the Boro cult that was introduced and it's surprisingly well written (if a little rushed). It kicks you in the feels like the original Naruto did. The religious sacrifices to "meet the gods" reminds me a little of Aztec/Mayan cults.

It's really weird that Kama/Karma is massively under-utilized in Naruto/Boruto fanfics, and even more so, in regards to Kaguya. Like yeah, Boruto sucks, but the concept is at least interesting, like with the timeslip arc having Urashiki get killed by Naruto, and so potentially leave his mark on one of his opponents, leading to an alternate universe story where dealing with the Karma becomes important.

In regards to Kaguya the only fanfic even attempting to explore it is a rather wonky crossover with DxD that doesn't explore the concept of the Karma and just uses it as a plot device for Issei to have Kaguya with him, it's so poorly paced and hamfisted despite decent grammar, (as well as not actually using the Karma as a Karma mark) that it just pisses me off. Seriously the only fic that approaches this concept at all, is a NeonZangetsu fic where Naruto holds Kaguya and it hints at it being a Karma-esque situation, but it's also one of his more lacking RWBY crossover fics so that ball is dropped too.
Fic 1: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13946589/1/The-Kama-of-Kaguya

I've also heard that Black Zetsu was her Karma Seal, but that fails to hold water - it's more of a programmed organic mass with a directive to resurrect Kaguya.

Someone noticed that teen Ben Ten and Sasuke's Dub are really similar and made a hilarious video.

It started when a Sharingan passed down did what it did.
It opened up inside his eye with secrets that it hid.
Now he's got a Sussano, he's no ordinary kid, he's Sasuke.

So if you see him, you might be in for a big surprise.
He'll summon giant boney arms before your very eyes.
With ninju- genju- amaterasu, everyone in front of him dies.
He's Sasuke.

Armed with defenses he's got a plan.
kill the leaf village to avenge his clan.
He'll never stop till he makes them pay.
Cause he's the badest kid to ever save the day.
