What is the materialist explanation for me being met with pages upon pages of gay male pornography for when I searched for jojo r34?

Not even dbz has this much amount of gay male pornography

Are the tumblr chicks okay? And this was on the starudst crusaders tag only for some reason

kek I mean it makes a lot of sense that you found endless amounts of yaoi* instead of whatever you were looking for, since Stardust Crusaders had only like 4 female characters.

*yaoi: male x male art and (fan)fiction made by women for a female audience. Its rough Western equivalent is called "slash" (after "male/male"). It's different from bara, which is gay porn drawn by and for gay men.

>>13588
Yaoi/BL* has been popular since the 70s, I think. And JoJo has always had a significant amount of female fans, most (but not all) of which are "fujoshi"†. Jotakak, the pairing of Jotaro and Kakyoin, is extremely popular, probably the most popular JoJo ship‡, because Stardust Crusaders itself is the most popular JoJo part of all time. This has been true since the late 80s which is when Part 3 started. JoJo attracts so many female fans because of its huge cast of diverse, cool male characters dressed in flamboyant and stylish clothes, and fujoshi in particular because said male characters, who are usually if not always single, spend a lot of time together and often have passionate feelings for each other in the form of rivalries, friendships, etc., which makes it easy for fujoshi to interpret their relationships as romantic and/or sexual in fan-created media (which shippers‡ in general do whenever there's tension between two characters).

As for the materialist explanation for the popularity of yaoi and the existence of fujoshi, there are already a couple of threads where they have been discussed (in short: there are many different reasons, some of which haven't been talked about on this board). Also, female creators, many of which were yaoi artists, used to be the majority at Comiket (and still are in a number of other Japanese anime/manga conventions) until lolicon artists started to actively compete against them with more sexually explicit content (see: https://crawfordpro.wordpress.com/2020/05/03/article-the-castle-of-doom-and-the-lolicon-boom/). So, if anything, yaoi was already popular before straight hentai doujinshi (through lolicon, I presume) experienced its own "boom", though I'm not sure of how popular straight hentai made by men was before that. However, this last part is just speculation based on wPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Also did you know that CLAMP (the mangaka behind Cardcaptor Sakura and other classic anime) made a BL Jotakak parody doujinshi where Kakyoin lays an egg containing his and Jotaro's son called Jota Kujo who would later appear briefly in a 1994 OVA? lol

>Sanpei Shirato, whose father was a proletarian painter, was heavily influenced by leftist artists and social activists. His work is thick with an evangelical disposition—utopian and idealistic. It blurs the line between reality and ideology. Early in 1959, Shirato rose to fame with Ninja Bugeichō , a story of a peasant uprising during the Sengoku period written from the perspective of the lower class in a rigid hierarchical society; it weaves a Marxist and materialist view of history, and soon became the subject of leftist praise.

>(…) Against this current, manga magazines proved to be a more standardized form of publication, gradually pushing out rental publications. This growth allowed Shirato to fund and set up a publishing company, Seirindo, with Katsuichi Nagai, and publish a magazine, Garo—a publication born out of the genes of leftist thought. Garo was destined to become a centerpiece of the student movements of the 1960s and early 70s, continuing manga’s expansion into new and unexplored realms. Garo’s peculiar content brought all kind of unusual material to the forefront of manga.


>The artists Garo published came to be referred to as the Garo School, which was equal parts experimental and authorial. But the artist who really shocked was Yoshiharu Tsuge. He came from a poor family and started drawing for rental comics as a teenager, making his way into Tezuka’s apartment office. Despite this, he felt constantly frustrated and had trouble making ends meet, living in a bathroom just big enough for a single tatami mat. This experience became the basis of his work. The openness of Garo’s editorial staff allowed Tsuge free reign. Beginning with his category-defying samurai manga Uwasa no Bushi, Tsuge refined own style free of restraint, culminating with “Nejishiki,” or “Screw Style.” It was a major shock for other authors and readers alike: it broke away the pursuit of meaning and instead chose to describe absurdity. Garo’s main readership at the time was leftist students influenced by avant-garde western art attuned to and willing to accept anything that broke away from traditional molds. If Shirato made the magazine a political tastemaker, Tsuge formally linked it to the avant garde.

>Kamui Den is a manga series written and drawn by Sanpei Shirato. Set in feudal Japan, it tells the story of a low-born ninja who has fled his clan. The series combines historical adventure with social commentary and themes of oppression and rebellion that reflect Shirato's Marxist convictions.
And of course only one volume was ever translated.

Always a peculiar feeling when I'm checking a mangaka's twitter and it's filled with retweets of Amerikan political bullshit. Most recent one even had Joe Rogan's clips about the covid vaccine.

I'm not trying to start anything or get into any kid of idpol argument.

I'm just wondering why so many anime, many of which never receives a release outside of Japan, and takes place in Japan, is filled with characters who are obviously not Japanese.

Picrel, with a redhaired green-eyed character and a blue-eyed blonde, in the anime, both are native Japanese. They also have big noses like Caucasians.

What's going on here?

Short answer: That is what the majority of the market wants and they are in the business of selling views of their anime.

Some studios recognize that non-whites are part of their audience and have an ensemble of protagonists , such as "Black lagoon" that had Rock , a Japanese man , Revy a Chinese-American woman , Dutch an African-American and Benny , a white (Jewish?) American . and it was pretty well received. Probably because they concentrated on making storytelling their first and only priority and left idpol at the door.

It was just conversations happening on screen. I'm not denying I wasn't intrigued by the dialogue or that it didn't have, at times, peculiar visuals but as an anime it wasn't particularly a project worth it visually. It reads away as a short story just as well. Or a live-action would have better suited it.

 No.13354

The anime and manga industry has been a regurgitation of the same 5 or 6 plots or themes for the past 20 years, people don't want to risk developing new and original ideas because they may not sell well, so they just adapt popular manga/webcomics and shit because it's easier and they already have an established fanbase that will watch the anime and consoooom merch.

This is a turbo capitalist industry that literally punishes creativity and originality, socialism would make better anime.
