Finally watched Kino no Tabi after a years-old recc, and I'm curious what the broader analysis on it is, and where we figure it stands. I found the 2003 series was pretty left on a few topics, specifically how many countries provide an allegory for the flawed and ideological way people perceive work and its purpose.
However I've been seeing a few wrinkles to that. I can't help but notice all the times in Kino no Tabi that a revolution against a king is exactly what causes a country to fail (not all but most, and most successful revolutions have the monarch secretly still hanging around,) begging the question of whether the show/books is ultimately projecting a Burkean outlook on the world.
This is compounded by how much emphasis is placed on the individual, though this is somewhat inevitable considering it focuses on a solitary wandering protagonist. However that emphasis on personal responsibility could be easily reframed in a negative way; it would be easy for some right-winger to interpret "country of radio waves" in the 2017 anime, where random murders are blamed on a radio tower that turns out to no longer exist, so that the any sort of institutional critique explaining crime could be imposed metaphorically on the tower, reducing societal dysfunction to purely individual choices.

I know that since there have been Kino stories for 20 years, most of what I've said may well be overturned in another tale–but do my my critiques stick?

What do YOU make of Kino no Tabi?

Also: Kino's 2003 hat is superior to the 2017 hat.

I'm calling Asushin victory in the next Evangelion.

I'm basing this a process of elimination and the ending of EoE. Kaworu is dead, Rei will be used in the instrumentality and Mari doesn't fit the ending thematically. Since the instrumentality will be started with 01 and Asuka lacks her Evangelion it's safe to assume she'll be in the middle of it.

Barring Anno dropping a brick on her head she'll be the last one standing with a confesion. Tic toc Mariasufags, tic toc.

NGE is unironically one of the best series I have ever seen in my entire life, 2D or 3D. I don't think it's pretentious at all. It's fan base, maybe. The movies seem to be milking off the brand, though.

Eroge can be based. There's a reason why there's a term to separate eroge only meant to jack off to and another for modern literary VN masterpieces.

youre a pedo if youre attracted to the MIND of a child, not 'the body'. this is a whole conspiracy to body shame women who don't have big enough boobs or ass, fucking amerifats. whats bad is the power imbalance, the inability for one party to rationalize the consequence, not because of arbitrary body shape. if a child 'looked like an adult' that would not make it okay for you to fyck them OP.

This right there. Also I feel like the recent obsession with pedophilia in the discourse is a direct result of the Epstein thing. Everybody suddenly realised that the rich all rape children, but because they are the ruling class nobody can do anything about it, so all that frustration get channeled into doing shit like trying to censor hentai and cancelling random youtubers.

That's so weird. I was just thinking about this the otherday. I haven't seen this anime in so long, so, I can't really commentate on it all that much. Interesting to see some one posted about it, though.

So, let's be clear:
Were these two living under a fascist military police state?
I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power. They even call the head of the goverment "The fuiër." Am I wrong /a/?

>TBH I never understood the hype for this show.
Your question is too vague but I'll try to answer it.
•The characters have fun, interesting and cool personalities with enough complexity to keep the audience engage.
•The setting and power system are detailed and unique enough for it to stand out from the crowd.
•The series is long enough convey it story properly and doesn't overstay it's welcome.
•The plot doesn't trip over itself and goes to shit.
•It's dark but still hopeful.
•It's "anime" but not too "anime" for a general audience making it great for beginners.

There are more reasons but I made my point.It's a very well rounded series which can be enjoyed by a wide audience.

Macross: Do you Remember Love had some great animation. It's a sort of retelling of the SDF Macross TV series, but I'd recommend watching the TV series first because of the story. Hideaki Anno did key animation for both. SDF Macross apparently didn't have the biggest budget as there is a lot of QUALITY and recycled animations.

SO what? There is only 1 or 2 posts mentioning reddit and it was related to the topic since traps are just a form of waifuism and escapism into "looking at cute anime girls" is essentially a form of waifuism as well.
