Things that are not anime and manga are also okay, and communist cosplay is even better.

Why does it feel as though the prevalence of Japanese culture in anime and manga hobbyist platforms has lessened despite the increasing popularity of the medium in the west? Has it simply become too widely available for it to have any permanence?

Think about the last time you saw shit like gachimuchi (that wasn’t made by a westerner aping the old content), nico medleys (which still get made today), content like Mou Ikkai, Geddan, Okkusenman, Miku stuff like Fukkireta, etc. I haven’t seen anything close to that on most western anime imageboards in many years. The best you see are the “go to Futaba and bring something back” (and calling it "2chan") threads but even those get a couple of posts or simply get deleted on the big places like 4chin these days.

Now it's just """"""""discussing""""""""" the stuff you're watching/reading, no more generating or sharing niche stuff made by fans.


It's not just here, the contradictions and worsening of capitalism has made Japanese hobbyist culture die out since 2013 or so due to their companies growing more aggressive causing people to get more complacent with spending, cancelling others for copyright infringement, posting about their gacha rolls, etc. in place of creating.


you sound spooked as fuck my guy, why does it not count when it's content made for a jp vtuber instead of for an anime, or a meme from japanese twitter like the I字 thing which i saw tons of reposts of on other boards, or those GYARI vocaloid videos which were fucking all over the place
>>15781 is true for sure but i really don't think it's as bleak as you're making it seem



ya, japan is part of the imperialist triad, I think it's being coopted for the sake of soft power influence just like Hollywood spreads their media all over the world, after the economic collapse they've been moving away from a dirgisme style economy towards neoliberalism at the prompting of American sanctions.

How much fluorite do I have to distill in order to enjoy this? Can I safely skip episodes 3-10?

Why did they only go back in time once? That does not make sense. Singularity implies all timelines converge to the same outcome. So… what gives?


I think they use singularity in the tech sense of artificial intelligences becoming sentient and rebelling against the humans, not in the metaphysical sense. The point of a single time travel is to try and make a new timeline where the events that supposedly caused the robots' killing spree have been altered, thus avoiding said killing spree. It's not amazing sci-fi, but the premise is certainly passable. The real theme of the show is the age-old question of what separates humans from sufficiently advanced robots, which is why I feel that to call the middle parts of the show filler is to entirely miss the point, because the show isn't really about a mission to save the world (though it is that as well), but about what makes Vivy or any other robot different from a human being.


>The real theme of the show is the age-old question of what separates humans from sufficiently advanced robots
If it is, then Episodes 3 through 10 are objectively filler. Since they're about an android trying to make humanity happy through song


anglo ideology strikes again


I don't even know what you're saying dude. Are you somehow denying the importance of this main theme?


Post old otaku culture links and stuff

This is footage from Comiket 1985. Surprisingly a lot more girls than I would have thought.

i wonder if it's because statistically women who have had multiple partners aren't going to end with you as their final partner. the more partners she's had the less likely she's going to settle with you. there is an instinctive drive to form long term bonds for the raising of children that has an influence on the sexual fantasies of males. maybe its because of that?


of course thats not just otaku fantasy it's male instinct. it just comes out more in otakus since they're less socially filtered then normies who keep these kind of thoughts and feelings to themselves and then virtue signal they don't feel that way because its expected of them.


Okay, this is beautiful, what the hell.


If a girl isn't bleeding and in pain the first time I fuck her, she doesn't really love me


VERY early anime penetration into America. Apparently this was a regular Sunday night thing on the channel and they played some real bangers.

Reminds me how sister at 15 created a fake persona of a 19 year old girl and catfished some 25 year old guy online to fuck her. Luckily for him she was of legal age. She did same with someone else as well.


yeah but that's a given

So I's (eyes) was watching this and it reminded of Cowboy Bebop but that's not quite it. What anime am I thinking of? The laid-back style, comedy, and animation and episodic nature whilst working towards a grander plot. I can't quite recall the name. Could a kind fellow help me out?

What do you guys think about this show so far? This anime has been taking me for a whirl several times, sometimes within the same episode. I'm still not sure if the show is any good or not, though. I think this is one of those situations where the ending of the show can really make or break the entire experience but for now I'm enjoying the ride.

Define a worthwhile plot. What does it require?


Meaningful exploration of the human condition


What does meaningful mean as opposed to worth? Define this word for me.


I'm not an expert film critic anon, I just have opinions. All I know is that some plots make me think about what it means to be human and to go beyond humanity, and some others make me think about what the author was smoking. If you find value in what I don't then good for you.


File: 1654883543566.png (888.98 KB, 1280x720, ClipboardImage.png)

Ah. I didn't mean to get overtly critical or desire an accurate definition or anything. But doesn't worthwhile and meaningful mean the same thing? Something is worthwhile if it's meaningful and vice versa. It's circular reasoning. Is it not?

But Monogatari is also an exploration of the human condition. And it's also done well. So when you refer to the plot as worthless… But what is the plot of Monogatari? Are the arcs not set-up and ended properly?

Personally I think Monogatari and the aforementioned shows are all memorable, and therefore good. Whereas Sonny Boy is bad because it fails to leave an impression, any impression is a good impression, even if it's a bad impression. Even if it's one you don't necessarily prefer, it means you still got something out of it, hence worth. But that's just my reasoning.

Extremely good & extremely underrated in the West. Still ongoing.
> convoluted treasure-hunting plot
> great character writing (very Coen-bros-like)
> lots of ethnography (the main character is Ainu)
> tons of history (you'll be reading Wikipedia to understand the events)
> respectful to its female cast, no typical manga/anime objectifying bullshit

<U-ur wasting my time
LMAO anon, you need anger management courses. Also no, I'm not wasting more time, I don't care about you, I'm laughing at you and having fun since you didn't deign to give me even a semblance of a calm reply.


I'm not angry. You're just projecting.


>U-ur projecting
And yet you're the one lurking the thread and continuing to reply, you're the one using ad hominum to 0 provocation.


What does that indicate?


the end was a bit rushed tho, you have to admit
