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.

That didn't happen in the anime adaptation. That scene was used in the manga adaptation and it wasnt glue he was snorting up drugs through a straw. It probably is in the light novel source.

When I was a wee lad I read Katawa Shoujo and ended up really liking Emi. She hit all the right spots for me personality wise. I finished her route with the impression that she was supposed to be the token tomboy among the main girls. To my astonishment, when I went on the Katawa Shoujo forum I found out that other people did not consider her a tomboy. How? She's the athletic, bold, energetic girl who likes to play rough. Did I not just describe a tomboy? Is it because she doesn't "look" like a tomboy? Ridiculous. It was as if at some point I had been transported to bizarro world where the word tomboy had been hijacked by pathetic fetishists who now tied the word tomboy to physical appearance.

As the years went by I found myself highly attracted to 2D girls with varying types of what are culturally seen as masculine qualities. Like the aforementioned athletic, bold, energetic, likes to play rough but also aggressive, assertive, emotionally reserved, brash, vulgar, messy, short-tempered, rhetorical, analytical, philosophical, gluttonous, as lustful as a man and so on. In other words, women who behave like the worst and best of male cultural stereotypes. Do they "look" like tomboys? Some do. But even then I have nothing in common with the pathetic fetishists, the most egregious and possibly loudest of which circlejerk over 2D girls who only "look" like tomboys and otherwise do not deviate much from the assumed average girl who on top of that unironically fantasize about turning said "tomboy" into a traditional 1950s cooking, breeding and raising servant (read: wife).

Don't believe me? Give a definition for the word tomboy. Then objectively think of all the fictional girls who come to your mind that fit that definition. How many have you never thought of as tomboys?

It's not just the word tomboy that is being systematically destroyed by pathetic fetishists. The word gyaru did not simply refer to physical appearance alone, but a whole subculture. To be a gyaru it's not enough to dress the part, you also have to act the part else you're a poser right? That's how subcultures work. Gals are stereotypically vain, airheaded, trendy, extroverted, socially intelligent, gold diggers, Americaboos and so on. Today? Shy gyaru. Awkward gyaru. Recluse gyaru. Tomboy gyaru. Normal girl gyaru. Otaku gyaru. Of course a character turning out to be different from expectation is funny on the occasion, but when every gyaru is effectively a poser gyaru thPost too long.

You posted an artist who is a prime example of that

"Tanned=outdoorsy/sporty" is not that different from "short-haired=masculine" in a sense, it's obviously something that isn't strictly true but it was used often enough that the association became ingrained in the minds of the anime audience. If you're trying to get a character's personality across with a single drawing, which is something that both Internet artists and professional character designers often have to do, you have to make use of this kind of association even when it doesn't make sense (like when a character is naturally dark-skinned).
And there might be some imported exoticism from the West regarding African and indigenous people as being less civilized – which can come across as more masculine – but I wonder how much of a factor that is.
>And gyarus are a whole other can of worms
>Like the idea of having dark skin = being unpure and tainted
Gyaru is a real fashion style and not just a character archetype, so I think looking at it this way is wrong. People who dress in a certain way don't do it because they want to project a negative image of themselves. Even if there is exoticism at play here too, it's not like real gyarus think of themselves as "tainted".

one funny thing about Re:Zero is Nagatsuki’s mild lolicon restrained sufficiently by taste or popularity to avoid any Made In Abyss shit manifests as one of the only medieval fantasies I’ve read to humanely represent something like Philippe Aries’ vision of premodern childhood. this vision may have been, in fact (per DeMause), a fantasy, but that makes it all the more interesting to incorporate into the idealized "Middle Ages" of a fantasy novel

"Anime/Manga is like Weimar classicism in the sense of often combining a very conservative bourgeois/feudal, even to the point of out right cozy, setting with the uncanny and the deviant. There is more of Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre, in say, NGE then in anything Disney will ever produce.
It is not because Americans are “sexually repressed” (lol) or less twisted by the memories of fascistic violence (double lol).
Rather it is because both Germany and Japan, unlike America, raise(d) modernization to the level of a conscious project juxtaposed against the mental domestic home of premodern realities, and entertain(ed) the hope that somehow one could combine the mos mairorum in the very midst of the storm of technological/capitalistic becoming.
Americans, right and left, have by contrast mostly gotten by with half assed confusion of the two methods of processing reality without understanding the beauty, the charms and the tragedy of their real distinctiveness. One could qualify this that communities historically diagonal to the main civic religion of Protestant flavored deism overlaid on dollar and nuke hegemony may parallel the mental atmosphere and affective disposition of insurgent/sentry state capitalist nations.

Any Furuya Minoru fans here? I think /leftypol/ would like their work.

I think my favorite is Boku To Issho. Fucking hilarious. It's about these two brothers that become homeless after their parents die and then they team up with this other kid who's a veteran homeless kid and their struggles with survival.

>WANITOKAGEGISU

>Tomioka Yuji is a 32-year-old night-shift guard for mall. He works completely alone, so he often slacks off, exercising and hanging out on the roof. In some ways, the job is perfect for him, as he's always been terrible with people. However, he can't help feeling incredibly lonely and wishing he had friends.
Another good one.

Some retard tried to copyright troll yukkuris and a law office got death threats from Touhou fans, all in Japan.

>Yuzuha first claimed on Twitter that fans would have to pay 100,000 yen (about US$770) for a license agreement. She later retracted that statement, but still claimed trademark rights. However, fans criticized Yuzuha because as of October 2020, YouTube channel Touhou Danmaku Kagura staff had confirmed with the ASCII art creator, the illustrator, and ZUN that anyone could freely use "Yukkuri Chabangeki."

>plenty of kids have skinned a cat naked to avoid the blood spatters
The fuck do you mean, what fucked up backwater are you from that has this happen regularly? I can only assume you're talking about SHAVING a cat, but that's not nearly the same thing as beating it to death and its not been a very common thing for decades at this point, that kind of prank hadn't even been that common back in the 80s, let alone the past decade. Fucked up psychos doing niche 'crush porn' are a tiny demographic of people, reviled by most, and certainly most children, especially of the depicted age don't behave like that.
>not reel lief!
Not an argument against poor writing, they're still humans and even if the setting hadn't been "the normal world but that has psychic dichlonius hidden among us" it'd be reviled because it's a natural reaction, most people are not sadistic in such an open and bloody manner.
>clearly don't recall the scene
I personally recall it just fine, and I suspect that the other anons do too
>we're talking about a group of specialized kids that are experimented on
Kids from the Concentration camps didn't become en masse serial killers and animal torturers. The kids here are randomly psychotic relative to the situation. Its a pointlessly edgy and poorly explained scene because the author couldn't think of a valid way to make a traumatic moment for the MC that causes her to bug out and kill them, so turned child bullies into behaving like adult psychos in an unrealistic manner even for an orphPost too long.

Kids from the holiday camps in which they did no concentrating or the concentrating camps that killed jews, fags and other infidels that barely had any survivors since 'kids' wouldn't be there long enough to grow up? Your lack of actual ww2 knowledge aside, it's totally irrelevant to the case regardless. If you're a different person, then you're both wrong and your critique of the scene, being equal to the other guy who initially responded and conveniently left for you to take his place. (very common on image boards) (you'd think the reply would split-off into two, but hey!), is faulty. You're anecdotal evidence remains wrong, and not an example of bad writing on the author's part. I don't think you do recall the scene in particular because you're unable to acknowledge it is proper writing done by a proper writing and there's nothing hack-eyed about it. You don't take my argument serious by your tone and that does no one any better. Since WW2 information is inaccurate, spotty and blatantly false propaganda I argue using it in comparison to a situation entirely different from it is retarded beyond belief. Jews weren't chosen to survive based on how well they did in mentally complex tests. It's totally ridiculous you think either your propagated knowledge on WW2 and your anecdotal evidence of individual kids has any say on whether or not this particular scene is well written or not, which it remains. You have failed to recall the scene if you call it a bad scene. And your doubling-down on your ignorance is just not an argument. Go fucking read up on WW2 for 40 hours first. Then do some basic historic research into manipulation, enough triple-lettered agencies have made their research public domain for you to last a lifetime. Go and read some of the stuff they did pre-ww2 and pre 9-11.(Read the rules chinny)

>You're anecdotal evidence
No it is not. It is a goddamn fact that kids and most people are not active sadists in such a manner and that its a shitty fucking edgelord scene that has no pretext of happening. This is literal high-school tier animal-killing and bullying, not something that happens to elementary school children. Also you have no argument, yet attempt to present yourself as "le smarter man"… even as you fuck up basic grammar.
>You don't take my argument serious
Because you have no argument, "muh not reel!" is not a fucking argument. Human beings don't suddenly become psychopaths in an orphanage, and a setting fictional or not needs to have internal consistency, otherwise its just poor writing.
>Jews weren't chosen to survive based on how well they did in mentally complex tests.
You're bringing up random fucking nonsense. Unironically check yourself into an institution, you're not addressing anything I said and just randomly go on schizophrenic tangents about your personal ignorance of WW2 that you project onto it historiography. No wonder you like this show, it appeals to the terrible or rather lack of taste you have. Your tangents about "le 3letter agencies" is fucking laughable given that I literally created the /edu/ CIA thread and numerous effortposts on the subject debunking their nonsense and posting sources on the subject.
