>In any case, Kajiwara Ikki's hugely influential sports trinity of the late '60s (Star of the Giants, Tomorrow's Joe, Tiger Mask), transformed Weekly Shounen Magazine from something read by only kids into acceptable reading material for college students. While the main characters Hyuuma and Tiger Mask of Star of the Giants and Tiger Mask were popular, it was particularly Yabuki Joe that many Dankai youths who participated in the student protests of the '60s identified with.

>The tale of the so-called Yodogō Group — the members of Sekigun-ha (Red Army Faction) who carried out Japan’s first ever airplane hijacking in 1970 — is a strange one. The surviving hijackers, if they hadn’t tried to commandeer a JAL airplane and fly it to Cuba, would be collecting their pensions by now. Instead, they are stuck in limbo in North Korea, unable to return to Japan.


>But even stranger than their lofty ambitions, perhaps, was their choice of language. When they announced their remarkable stunt, they finished off the grandiose proclamations of world revolution with a curious phrase: Ware ware wa ashita no jō de aru (We are Ashita no jō). This is a reference to a popular manga at the time and was the leftists’ way of communicating that they were the Everyman; at heart, they were just ordinary former college kids. And like the eponymous Joe, they were fighters.

I love this kind of artstyle, older anime really had uniqueness compared to modern stuff, where each anime has the same generic face design.

Back in the 60s and 70s the Japanese Youth were really revolutionary, no wonder they identified with such based stuff.

How a basic bitch superhero highschool shonen (a la Sky High) with such a shitty premise and ultra stereotyped characters got popular is kinda beyond me. Its like OPM without the sarcastic distance, with design almost as ridiculous but taking itself way too seriously. And the main character is exactly the kind of annoying OP crybaby beating everything through the power of love that I hate. It's about a society where the spectacle has even absorbed the police/army (ie. superheroes/superhero associations) and this is treated like the best thing ever. Also success is mainly determined at birth. Hey prole, do you have trouble with making ends meet? Well, try having better genes next time. And of course, we are talking about cool flashy powers here so it's not like this anything to do with Social Darwinism and eugenics.

The only thing it was good for is 1-2 seasons of superhero stuff and memes. Seriously this got popular while Tiger x Bunny is forgotten

It's like I'm playing old RPG games on browser flash. I feel like anime today are conscious of memes and memery and have begun to set themselves up specifically to reference memes OR provoke memes just to make themselves more popular. Japan musta finally noticed the Jojo trend.

Also since I started, the hax eyes meme is just that, a meme, it has some basis but people sorta ignore that even a 3-tomoe sharingan is rare in the Uchiha, so a couple people out of hundreds having this hax is pretty acceptable compared to a lot of modern stuff.

Nami'd kill for a money making scheme like that - it's in her style, using temporary living ona-holes essentially to make money (and get pleasure) from places they stop at, while remaining squeaky clean herself.
Also on a less sexual note, the Strawhats could make a lot of money (and infamy) by selling clones of Nico Robin, to marines for bounties (in disguise) and then having them go *poof* leaving the marines having nothing.

I also got an idea about Robin making a clone that goes rogue and becomes a nymphomaniac, with the original one feeling everything that happens with the clone and having to hunt it down, before it messes everything up.

>Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15

>The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition
>The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses

The story is just before shit's about to get real and the creator dying has made it even more notable. The IP owner will want to make more, even if it's just a spinoff showing Rickert getting trained by Silat in whatever's left of the Kushan Empire. Honestly that might be an even more marketable story, much more shonen-like.

Adapting an anime of the Rance Series might be a good idea, it's like Konosuba but less comedic, but lacking the edgelord attitude of something like Redo of Healer.

Make an Isekai story that's actually just a big game of pretend a la pic related. Just a big adventure in a story, playing on children's creativity and self-insertion.

For example Warhammer 40k is what happened when a bunch of kids got some green army soldiers, painted them and added stickers, and came up with their own backstories for each of their armies as they fought. Kids being kids this became a game of imagination one-upmanship, each saying their side has ever escalating weapons or powers, each making theirs out to be the meanest, bloodiest, most terrible side and before you know it these pre-teens have invented most of the nonsense lore and grimdarkness. Seriously this is literally the original Warhammer boardgame.

Is Attack on Titan fash?

>>9993
the only reason Titans are any threat at all is their insane regeneration and the fact that the 1m area of the nape needs to be totally cut out to permanently deleto them because (spoilers) that's the area of the actual human part's in the Titans - the head to be exact.

Also add to all this - Titans are literally lighter than they physically should be, as the head of a 3m Titan could be kicked by a tteenage girl like a football (soccerball), so technically a basic set of mines could knock Titans off their feet and on the ground people can pin them and cut out that nape.

Oooh you're talking about the submarine… it's consistent for the actual boats themselves, after all Victory Belles art design goes for a look based on attire and aesthetic archetypes of the World War II era. As for the VA, I think that's probably a coincidence TBH, the same can be said about the Russian VA for the Kirov (youtube link related). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hzi3UjYjTmM&ab_channel=BlackChickenStudios
Regardless that's a pretty silly reason to not like a game, especially since those aren't mainline playable characters.

The design for the Axum isn't really that bad, it's no more realistic than any of the other shipgirls in the game TBH. Pic related is a Soviet submarine - not very Soviet or Russian… though other Soviet ships like the Svetlana class Profintern are pretty cool looking.

If you actually look at Axum's character introduction (link below) you'll see that they approach the character as an actual 'Italian Patriot' of that time containing rather surprising historical accuracy.

I have no stake in this, for the record, I just like the art design and found this pretty refreshing compared to Kancolles lazy moe-shit.

An accurate portrayal of an actual fascist Patriot of Italy sounds like? Just like the interviews with Soviet ships had Soviet ideology and the American ships have America ideology etc. Is it politically correct? No. Is it accurate to the time? Yes. Is it interesting, I think so. I don't play the game so I don't know is that material is in there.

About to finish AoT. Never been sensitive but felt disgusted watching this. What started as good horror turn out to be hilarious nazi apology and rightoid wet dream. Whole show is about genetically different race of super warriors who's being hated by whole world for being too cool and powerful. Which is obvious allegories for Japan Empire and somewhat Nazi Germany. So this race is so baddass it even conceded out of mercy after conquering other races. And other races are so weak they had to use those super people for their wars. What in real life is persecution for war crimes, here is portrayed as blind and wrong discrimination, even tho crimes are not denied. By the end plot comes down to whitewashing literal nationalism. Can't believe this got so much praise.
