I'm a way too old otaku who's always been into a lot of underground Japanese subculture shit thanks to learning the language but even I have to be amazed at the sort of shallow orientalism that's going on on imageboards, like cumming at sakura trees, larping as an imperialist or making Japan seem as the last trad ethnostate (it really isn't), or more recently and what prompted me to make this thread, someone posting a picture of their room with a huge ass poster of Tokyo's subway map. Like really? What's the appeal of that? Sure, he might have been a train otaku, but nothing else in the picture indicated that.

To sum it up, fuck orientalism.

modernity is cool fuck that reactionary trash miyazaki


People like you are everything wrong with anime culture.


Fuck you, western imperialist dog. Your "modernity" is demonic death and destruction disguised as "progress" and "democracy"


What the fuck

TV Lupin is full of well animated episodes. Green, Red, Pink, all have great work.


The last few episodes of red jacket has some really strong animation. The bank heist episodes and the two miyazaki eps look movie-quality

kanye, the Black Stirner, was a fan of Lupin III, so it checks out


>Kanye even gave himself Lupin hair

Is this the root of his madness? He just wants to be a rubbery horny cartoon man but the laws of reality forbid his desire?

Touhou popularity proves Yukari is fucking real.


a lot of cute girls in frilly dresses and a sort of interesting lore that re-elaborates on east asian folklore and religions.
Personally, I don't even care about the official games.


What are some good ones?

Fall is ours bros


>Pop team epic 2
Must've missed that one. Indeed. What a promising season.


don't forget about golden kamuy 4
i'm so fucking pumped for more winter treasure hunting kino i love this series so much


I'm watching Made in Abss and the Vampire one. Pretty good so far.


How can you be pumped for that censored secondary garbage? The manga exists and does the job just fine. If you've seen even a second of the anime, you didn't experience the kino.

copypasta saved


congrats, you are now a WIZAD, you are officially old enough to be the go to guy for the true con idiots to get booze/smokes/etc
but remember, over half the good looking cosplayers and gals are UNDERAGE TO THE EXTREME
but they don't care, they just want to get in there, have fun, make clips to share online, talk smack about your old ass, etc
you are TOO OLD, to hook up at a con anymore unless the woman you are talking to is also as old(easy to tell if they are not mentally broken)

Just remember, a convention is there to
1) Buy shit that you can actually see/handle in real life and not get fucked over by false reviews and trick photography/touchups.
2) Get convention exclusives(less than half are worth it, but still worth it)
3) Talk anime in real life, in the open without being swatted/losing your job/embarrassing yourself(too badly)
4) Talk to those who voice the anime's, make the animes, import/produce the animes, get signatures, cells(if they still animate without computers), and show your geekiness off for fun(remember you are the old one now, remember that old anime that for some reason would actually take off now?? SHARE IT/NAME DROP!!)

A tank convention would be all about guys/gals talking about tanks, buying tank related things, watching tank movies/skits/plays/dressup. Driving a tank in a special pay for service, and more. The only difference is that conventions have a clear age related divide, those under 25 are the con goers that can do almost anything(19 or younger can and will TRY to do everything) and those above 25 are generally there to talk to people the same age, talk the shit, exchange contact info, and will generally RUN the thing themselves.

Is it the remnants of fascism?

I'm watching Demon Slayer and this just comes out of nowhere, and I've noticed it often in shounen anime

I don't particularly disagree with it, You have to be strong to protect anything you love, but I see why so many fashies are attracted to anime and turn into weebs

Also feels like this kind of messaging is why so many of japanese men are salary men loser otakus who are too scared to fuck

Like "BE strong or lose everything" and "yay consumerism!! gundamn models!!" sort of message just seems to create these kind of people

If you seriously watched Kimetsu no Yaiba, one of the warmest most empathetic recent anime, and assumed that speech is meant to be 100% the author's intended message of the work you're pretty dumb.

Its emotional core is empathy and familial ties, both literal and metaphoric.


Most shounen manga have this weird fascination with integrating Neo-Darwinism into their worldbuilding to the point where it basically becomes detached from reality, most shounen animes usually center around some sort of supernatural powers being used in wars (My hero, Jujitsu Kaisen, Demon Slayer). Practically all of them phase out evolutionary genetics or anything short of mysticism by making these powers only attainable via inheritance and nothing else. Very shitty writing. Not only does modern Shounen anime appeal to the most normal and mainstream audience and being totally forgettable and dissimilar, but they also fucking fail at basic genetics. Powers in anime shouldn't just be mostly attained via muh inheritance but should also be subject to evolutionary change during the metabolization of the environment, and subsequent evolution of new traits/powers, just like how practically all living species on earth make qualitative changes in their lives.

Tl;dr shounen anime is fascist


funny then that none of your exemple except demon slayer work that way
MHA is about the near entirety of humanity (it's supposed to be 80%,but it's easy to forget when the author doesn't do anything with it) having random powers and some of them being deemed good enough by an arbitrary ranking boss fight to make them heroes (the entire start of the series even talked about how unfair the focus was on powerful physical powers etc,but it was also badly written if you remember half of the students being incapable of actually winning the robot fight,and now it devolved into end of naruto bullshit and every hero being a private cop isn't even adressed anymore or just in passing and handwaved)
for Jujustu Kaisen,one of the strongest characters is because of their lack of genetic inheritance,the MC has powers because he's possessed by the strongest demon that ever existed,and every family shit on the respective characters as "not belonging to the clan",one of them is litterally a spirit robot built by someone who then made it his son,pretty much all the families are deeply disfunctiunal and it's honestly quite dark and pessimistic on the family question,where they all end up killing each other or losing one or more relatives.
For Demon Slayer,the MC isn't strong because of his family,one of the character litteraly lived in nature and trained there,but I do agree that a lot are descended from old slayers (but it make sense,because they're the one who trained their children) it's not necesserally about their bloodline except for the thunder guy,where yes,he wouldn't have his power without being born from his family.
I do agree that powers that you can only inherit is pretty lame,but that's Dragon Ball Z+Super you're talking about (or AoT,but it's subverted when talking about the Hackerman,and the time travel bullshit)

that's just your run of the mill edgy japanese thing

I remember reading some hentai and the girl just remarked out of the blue "wow you actually have a job? guess you're really an adult productive memeber of society huh"

asiatics are weird man


Can't even jerk the gerkin without capitalist dogma :disappointed:

Embedding error.

Looks great but I just want Hathaway's Flash 2

It happened again

File: 1657739769680.png (104.81 KB, 918x618, adventurer guild.png)


Adventurers' guilds are a product of Japan hitting capitalism realism.


The ideals of isekai are inspired by capitalist realism in general


>get killed
>immediately become a wage slave


just like real life


Not to mention that adventurer guilds are historically absurd. It's just modern late-capitalist japan re-imagining itself as a feudal fantasy land, and all the trappings of magic and elves and shit only lightly cover what is in fact a very depressing genre, in which "freedom" is pretty much just freedom to live your old alienated life except this time you have superpowers and hot chicks following you for no discernible reason.

So many anime adaptations announced for manga that already ended years ago. Not that I'm complaining.

I don't want current SHAFT to finish SZS. That boat sailed long ago…


Kinda funny in retrospect that they didn't think to include P&S season 2.


Considering how shitty the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer anime ended up being I wouldn't be so "hyped".


Never thought the manga was anything special myself.


>tfw read Tomo-chan in real time on 4chans /a/ board
I remember a beach arc where anons absolutely thought that there was gonna be NTR lmao


Hello comrades, I'm here with a proposal: let's start a scanlation group to bring leftist manga to a non-Japanese audience.
>Are there any leftist manga???
Yes, for example the masterpiece of Japanese communist literature Kani Kousen (The crab cannery ship) got three manga adaptation. Two of them are available in digital, and I suggest we start from them.
>What do you bring to the table? You're aren't one of those "idea guys", right?
I'm a scanlator: I translate, clean pages and add text. I can do basically anything you need to do to release a manga, except I'm not too good with PS and since I'm not a native speaker I also need someone else to do editing and proofreading.
Oh, I can also provide raws and I have uploading privileges on mangadex.
>How do we organize?
That's something I can't answer. I know that d*scord is a big no-no, but I don't know many alternatives, so I'd like to hear your proposals.

So, what do you think?

His historical manga are all fucking great and I just hope his others get translated one day too

Insanely skillful artwork and inventive imagery. Really wish political cartoons in general were this good.


Scans of Sakura Illustrated were posted here and to archive.org over a year and a half ago. It includes the original English translation of the chapter you mentioned (you can also find it on mangadex iirc)

Here's the thread: https://leftypol.org/anime/res/5156.html


yeah I know lol I'm pretty sure I was the final push that got the scanner to do buy and scan em. just saying it would be cool if it was fully translated
