Please don't make me regret making this thread by posting some coomer shit.

What do you think about Ghost in the Shell? Do you think the political/technology critiques are valid or bullshit (I tend to see a lot of reactionary fans co-opt very leftist takes). Discuss.

Who the hell is even the target audience for this cringeworthy shitshow these days? I'm seriously curious.

Yeah it's sad what Dragon Ball has devolved into. It didn't used to be this bad, the fights were entertaining, there was some nice drama and heartfelt moments, cool themes, pervy moments, excellent worldbuilding, awesome Toriyama art, etc. of course it had problems (like Goku never maturing into a responsible person with a purpose other than "get stronger" and "have fun") but that's besides the point. Super meanwhile? The only thing I could praise is the occasional cool soundtrack, that's literally it.

Isnt that just nostalgia talking because you were watching it as a child? I started watching Dragon Ball in my early 20s, and I must say, overally Super is better show than Z. The fights are much better choreographed and animated now then they ever were. With the exception of Sayan invasion, they had all the same formula of villains completely dominate the heroes => heroes power up and dominate the villains => villains powers up and dominate the heroes =>heroes power up etc. etc. Fights were always completely one sided and the sides constantly kept switching. The animation during combat was like 5 frames looping.


Dragonball should have ended with Namek blowing up. That doesn't mean Super is good.


Obviously Mr.Popo

>fights are better choreographed/animated
Only because of the debacle with the movie where the fuckups were so obvious only the most inattentive missed them. Super had a bigger budget and isn't hand-drawn unlike DBZ. DBZ had some bad parts but it was overall really fun, if stupid at times… this is solved by having DBZA which is peak Dragon Ball.

In 1969, Shonen Jump published a 3 chapter miniseries called Kakumeiji Guevara by Miyawaki Shintaro (author of Rapeman). There's little to no info about it online and the only scans of it are of the title pages. The actual content remains to be seen, worsened by the fact that it never appeared to be collected in a tankobon release.

Who remembers this little shit? I really liked this show, but I dropped, because they wouldn't finnish it, which resulted in the producers dragging it on too long.

Anybody know any good cutesy Yaoi manga/anime?
I've watched the stock standard Doukyuusei and Yuri on Ice, but apart from that, I don't know of anything good.

Also, general SFW Yaoi thread.

While I personally dislike yaoi content as it's not to my taste (and attracts fujoshits), the concept itself is not that big a deal because in the end it's never used to push ideology or some other garbage, unlike Western comics and media which exploit such stuff. It's just aoftcore (or hardcore) erotica with a simple romance plot between 2 men, not some sort of virtue-signal.

Western comics can't seem to shut up about gays and society, even though literally nobody but a small, always existing minority of people are openly attacking them. The constant pride flags all over the place and corporate shilling and stuff like changing a banner on a subreddit is all so fake and literally gay, as is the entire concept of a "pride month". Note that this is only for Capitalist Western countries, and this started in the USA, The place this whole hullabaloo started. This gay pride, is inane idpol, because it's the same as being proud you're white or of a certain nationality - if your identity is built on superficial things like who you fuck and what skin color you are, you're essentially a shallow NPC because this whole pride thing is just a mess of ideology. It's intentionally dehumanizing because it encourages people to have samefaced personalities and not disrupt the porky status quo. Anyone who speaks out against this is immediately a homophobe, even other gay people who 'dare' to point this out.

So what does this have to do with Yaoi? The fact that Yaoi stuff doesn't promote this, the content does not define the characters involved nor is it some shallow, misplaced source of pride or ideological basis.

A good example of stuff that inspires Yaoi is the Western interpretation of Sasuke and Naruto - the two are often paired in stories due to the latter's obsessive behavior, even though that was a hyperbole of the author to emphasize how much Naruto values his bonds and friendships, which is the Japanese POV, but I digress - this fact of course encourages yaoi pairings of the characters, however while doujins and memes tend to make it short and sweet (or humorous) and not exploitative, Western authors, (like in fanfiction) tend to dramatize it into a mix between a disturbing cocklust and a bad Indian Soap Opera. But because people fear being called out as "homophobes" for pointing out how blatantly idpoled the content may be, they stay silent.

An example would be the rainbow flare on the r/NarutoFanfiction subreddit. A recent thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What the fuck even is the point of harem series? Aren't most of them just romance but with an even greater chance of blueballing you?
Yeah, it SEEMS like pure wish fulfillment, but it isn't even good at that because in most shows there's only relentless teasing instead of any actual romance and the MC only ends up with one of the candidates anyway.
The only explanation I can come up with is that it's just a way to increase the appeal (and thus commercial potential) of a standard romance series by cramming it with different archetypes. Either that or anime fans just love getting teased with no real guarantee of a reward, which would explain a lot, actually.

File: 1608529124010.jpg (111.67 KB, 1242x1416, superior harem protagonist.jpg)

It's a (power) fantasy and often an attempt at Slice-of-Life, usually with battle-waifus. Most harems go to shit because they're very same faced and predictable in both the MC and the girls. To repost my old rant.

this thread reminds me why most harem shows, other than DxD are annoying. All this over-sexualization for no reason except anime-gags. At least DxD doesn't try and hide behind the whole 'pure protagonist' bullshit the others do and instead revels in this.

There are very few Harem anime that are good or fun, such as Ranma 1/2 or is Zero no Tsukaima (though in the end Saito subverts the usual harem stuff by having Saito leave with Louise for his world after marrying her and her alone, though in his case you actually wish they had gone all the way with the harem route)

Let's list off the number of SHITTY Harems, starting with the ones I can think off the top my head:
- Testament of Sister Devil (or whatever its called) is DxD if written by an edgy fanfic writer who doesn't understand what DxD is about, (I actually plan on writing a comparison on the two later).
- Unlimited Fafnir, a weird as fuck typical anime similar to Black Bullet except unironically having the main character getting intimate with the 'dragon lolis'. It's less a cohesive story and more a mixed bag of story ideas from other better anime like Evangelion
- Girly Air Force is like Dragonaut but as a (potential) harem and with the reasoning for the protagonist actually being there in the first place as rather weak. It's also a wierd attempt to fetishize planes
- Rosario and Vampire, initially has a cool idea but doesn't think about the long-term and makes the vampire too over-powered and edgy while the protag is bland and weak.
- In another world with my Smartphone: It's OP done wrong, simple as that. It's got no stakes, not even the shitty, SAO-type ones.

A good video got made on this actually; How to (Not) Handle an OP Character - Ft. Isekai Smartphone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wz3dBaUh9PU

Ranma 1/2 was one of the few manga I've read from start to finish. I digged the martial arts aspect, but ngl I found many of the cliche hijinks pretty entertaining but I'm not even sure why, so I won't even try to defend my allegedly shit taste.

>mental gymnastics
The author used multiple academic sources. Are you suggesting the academic sources are responsible for "mental gymanstics"?


1) citing academic sources means nothing when the extrapolations are his own - those are mental gymnastics
2) I can find academic sources for all sorts of inane bullshit and create arguments for why Dinosaurs and birds shouldn't be related. Doesn't make that thesis correct
3) This has been covered before. A lolicon is still a lolicon no matter what pseudo-intellectual trappings you dress it up in. Stop continuing this shit duplicate thread.


>1) citing academic sources means nothing when the extrapolations are his own - those are mental gymnastics
Doesn't he directly quote the authors? Don't make me re-read the whole thing again.


>Doesn't he directly quote the authors?
1) out of context excerpts can be made to mean anything i.e. Stalin's out of context quote about "no communists in Lithuania"
2) An author is not an objective source (death of author)
3) He takes a quote and then explains it in his own subjective and biased interpretation (obviously a lolicon will argue favorably for lolicons - including a lolicon in denial).
Then don't. It is an absolute waste of time to write such a paper on a subject of whether fiddling drawn depictions of child-bodies is pedophilic or not. And it is even more a waste of time to read and discuss it repeatedly. Don't take anime seriously and don't engage in drawn CP. All his citations and other crap still boil down to the same fucking arguments about 1000 year old vampire lolis or petite bodies or hebephilia and other nauseating semantics. Again go to the lolipol thread.


Just to add on: No matter how many quotes and deflections he uses, his arguments boil down to the same debunked shit. It's not worth the time of day

What have m/a/nga have you been reading lately, /anime/? For me personally it was probably Beastars and Chainsaw Man, both until the last released chapter at the time and i haven't gotten to reading them again. Both are fairly enjoyable and interesting, although fair warning that the latter is rather angsty. It has some nice character designs, though.

Spoiler for body horror.

Insane power move. Not even interested in the main premise but I'll keep an eye out for these two and see where they go. Helps that it's only a light 4 pages. The collective pearl clutching of horrified non-sickos is a freebie.
