Patalliro!

I love this anime / manga. The greatest genderqueer anime of all time. The art direction is amazing. …Is it a new movement of it's own?

Watch all the English subs on a stream website.

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.

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.

>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).
>reread
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.

Yesterday I finished watching season 3, and I haven't been able to put it out of my mind since. I don't like that, it's just a high school romantic comedy after all. Hopefully writing a few lines about it will make that go away.

They really surprised my by committing to a definite conclusion. The way the story resolved, the way the love triangle resolved, was not unexpected in my opinion - what we got was what the story had been building up to, what had been telegraphed from the beginning. But given the ambiguous endings of the previous seasons and the often bittersweet conclusion to minor arcs, I didn't think they would play it completely straight in the end. Fully expected them to either leave the matter unresolved again, or end with everyone-losing-but-growing-from-the-experience. But they stuck the landing, and for all intents and purposes the story has concluded, the curtain has dropped. This too was made clear before the actual finale of course, with the repeated references to endings and conclusions in the dialogue, but that doesn't sink in until it has happened.

Maybe that's what's irking me - I've gone a couple of years living with this as something that promised to be forever unresolved, and now I'm faced with abrupt closure. I didn't want it to ever be really over.

Still, I have a gripe. Call it team-Yui sour grapes if you want. Story-wise, the love triangle obviously resolved as it "should" have, if it was to have any positive resolution at all. No need to go into the details of why that is, a blind man can see it. But it leaves a taste that's not just bittersweet but straight up bitter. What the story builds to is an unironic Hiki-Yukinon power couple. The culmination of their on-screen relationship consists of them coming together to do [b]event management[/b], which had become a bit of a repeating trope in the latter half of the series. The girlboss of the wealthy family wins, and acquires an utterly loyal and at least moderately competent future husband who will help her take over and run the family empire. We are expected to have sympathy for the rich girl; how terrible it is for her to be burdened with all these expectations and these exacting family members, and how much of a savior her future husband proves to be… Frankly I don't like it, and I don't have as much sympathy as the story would want me to. Fuck the rich and their problems.

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.

Question, I heard the manga of this included some stuff about RC chemicals (legal highs) in japan, is that true? Kinda interested in it. I know in the show he was sniffing glue or something when his mum walked in on him jacking off but apparently the manga goes into more depth. If it's true what the other anon was saying and it was loosely autobiographical, maybe the guy just had some sort of powerful hallucinogenic experience. I dunno, I haven't looked into the guy, if he went full on religious nut then yea that's a bit fucked.

The novel is the source material, and yes it had Satou abusing drugs. The manga is kinda bad in that it destroys the character development of the main girl in a single page. You'll understand if you read it.
