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.

I've watched the stock standard Doukyuusei and Yuri on Ice, but apart from that, I don't know of anything good.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
