Post old otaku culture links and stuff

This is footage from Comiket 1985. Surprisingly a lot more girls than I would have thought.

That's not what your image says. It means they were inspired to break taboos, since yaoi themes were so popular at the time. They wanted to compete with it, and were not offended by it. You'll find few sexual taboos that actually offend otaku types.


>were not offended by it
They weren't offended by the taboo themes in yaoi but that doesn't mean that they were ok with yaoi itself.
>During their early days, the prevalence of female participants and their subjects of interests in dōjinshi markets had made male dōjinshi artists felt alienated.


>During their early days, the prevalence of female participants and their subjects of interests in dōjinshi markets had made male dōjinshi artists felt alienated
Yeah, because straight men don't usually watch gay porn. However, you have the mistaken impression that they actually wanted Yaoi stuff gone rather than trying to compete with the unprecedented sales. Fujoshi have always been part of the climate at comiket and will continue to be so. Hell, some of the biggest participants and successes have ben all-female circles that specifically participated in the Yaoi fandom. Look at characters like Garma Zabi, who was instantly taken in by these groups, and entire franchises meant to appeal to females. Even ones that were shounen action appealed and continued to provide service for female fans. This idea that the lolicon movement in circles was somehow opposed to BL themes or yaoi is stupid. They are separate and both are liberating expressions of art. Sometimes it almost seems like the artist wants to shock the reader with taboo themes that do not produce an erotic reaction anymore. This is true for both yaoi and lolicon generes. I think this is a good thing, and I do not believe that either are pushing the other out. This false conflict that you are presenting is just that: false.


Like NTR, or furry in the west.


It was there NTR/furry so when it was everywhere they tried to replace gay porn with cheese pizza

>That's not what your image says
>"we'll drive yaoi out of comiket"
>BL themes or yaoi is stupid.
No you.

Why is it so good?


Found it pretty boring actually and I watched the complete first season. What was the point of the story. He dying repeatedly about a girl that never liked him back?


i guess the point of the first season is just seeing subaru's insanity and growth as well as the way people can act according to the circumstances they're under. it's a very character focused anime so if you don't like them, you will likely find it boring


It has good moments but the pacing is terrible. After a solid opening arc that flies by, the story just comes to a dull, dead stop until it gets to the eldritch horror of the last arc of S1 and you get the kitchen sink thrown at you. Is S2 better in that regard?

Just finished this show and it has become one of my favorites. On the surface this anime appears to be trash anime packed full of fan service, but on watching it the so called "trash anime" is brimming with substance. excellent character design, badass soundtrack, and one of the satisfying endings I have seen in a long time. This show can make a scene of a butt naked woman running around killing enemy's with nothing but her toe nail feel empowering and not at all exploitative and fan servicey. What are your guys opinion on the show?

i was half joking but yeah this and ttgl give me amazingly leftist vibes that i did not expect to see in anime. i don't know if studio trigger is intending to be this based but it's a really nice change of pace compared to the usual shit this medium does


Gurren Lagann was better and it still felt like “Fanservice: the Anime” despite how cool it looked.


Studio Trigger was founded by ex-Gainax animators like Imaishi Hiroyuki. Given the corporate bullshit of Gainax in the last decade and the general toxic, exploitive nature of anime, yeah, I wouldn't be surprised about some comrades in Studio Trigger.


I barely noticed the fanservice so I don't think so .


I did, so I think yes.

These two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime, everyone loves them, yet they are such fucking garbage, literal trash, why are they so fucking bad holy shit.
And I watched it when I was a kid and even then I HATED it, I had a friend who also watched DBZ and he hated it too, even we who were just two little dumbass kids could recognize how shit this cartoon was. And dont get me started on Super.
Naruto is just as bad if not worse, they somehow contradict their own message every god damn time, and have a little privileged retarded kid as the main character who was born with le epic god powers, and never works a day in his life to achieve anything, its all just handed to him

>stretch out these franchises FAR TO FUCKING LONG
True, but not to the extent you're making it out to be, faggot.
>In real life Naruto shippuden doesn’t have 500 episodes worth of actual plot it has 100 or even less of you were to force every fight to a maximum of 5 minutes and every major conflict to a maximum of 1 episode
<Hurr if you just cut out all the interactions and material that fleshes out the anime you can make it really short
I'm not even talking about faggots like you bitching about "rushing things" if the show did squeeze everything into "muh 5 minutes and 1 episode". Funny that this exact shit has made most Shonen anime, especially battle shonen into bland, boring crap that resolves problems and themes in a couple episodes making shit meaningless and boring.
>Muh filler memes
Get over yourself. People only bitched about filler because they didn't like that it didn't stick to the manga, nevermind that most filler occurred in the lulls of important arcs. (Bleach is worse in that regard). Many fillers are fairly good in Naruto excluding some single-episodes that are mostly inoffensive.
>conversations about nothing
where? That's a problem of Slice of Life Moeshit. Yes Shonen anime can have characters state the obvious at times… because it's mostly a direct interpretation of the manga that doesn't have animated segments and has to
sometimes use exposition to carry across the internal thoughts of characters.
>flashbacks that never get developed in the story
See above.

>Genndy does communication with animation
non-sequitur and I like that you ignore Genndy having jut as much exposition as any shonen. You can have both, idiot. Bleach does have this issue though, as half the cast is constantly making stoic "cool" faces in nearly every interaction.
>haracters ranting for dozens of minutes straight about whatever new tactics they’re thinking of.
Yeah ok you're demonstrating that you haven't watched the show. The longest explanation of tactics I can recall in Naruto takes less than 5 minutes and is AFTER the tactics/plan is demonstrated in full.
>so many fucking minutes explaining why you should give a shit about whatever the fuck the characters are feeling
LMAO are you retarded? Or do you no comprehend that anime is a visual-audio media, not pure visual, and that real life people… talk, people don't just rely on facial expressions to communicate
>what their new chakra soul power ultra
They don't explain that though, you retard, it's literally the opposite of that since their increase in power is demonstrated and then internal or external exposition by characters enunciate and clarifies what happens, (pic 2 related).
>having some pink haired bitch explaining their pasts to me
LMAO Sakura barely ever talks about her past or gets long moments at all. What are you on, must be some good dope if those are your delusions.
>all without needing a word spoken
Yeah no, You cannot tell a story like Gaara's pain and suffering and not have a word spoken, Moreover in Naruto it is literally a PLOT POINT that characters that connect can understand one another and not use words, but for the audience they speak in their minds, ergo the infamous "Narutoooo" "Sasukeeee" meme.

TL;DR: screaming "Muh words" and again massively exaggerating is pathetic and demonstrates your autism.


Lolis and lolicons.

>they treat the workers like garbage
<Did ya know in Japan, a capitalist country that is famous for karoshi and horrifically overstrict and toxic work culture in every single industry and job, also abuses animators!?
Yeah, no shit they treat laborers like trash, they treat most of the population like that, same in Korea and China, it's part of a deeply ingrained workaholic culture in Far-East Asia. There is an entire THREAD dedicated to this topic IN DEPTH if you bothered to check catalog >>617

Disregarding this, the statement is also an utter nonsequitur as a criticism of shonen in general and Naruto in particular, if you didn't notice. I'd also point out that this overwork impacts the creators of the manga just as it does their underlings, thus Oda is sick all the time, Yamaguchi becoming ill and dying, and Hunter x Hunter and Bleach being on indefinite hiatus until recently.

It's truly amazing just how horrible this manga is that anime filler arcs are superior by far. Kawaki is the only part of the manga that is actually any fun to me and even then it could have been done so much better. I'm starting to really LOATHE the manga, it's not even at 70 Chapters and it's inferior to its OWN anime fillers, let alone Naruto anime fillers. Every fight and scene of an OG character in this manga, and the fact that it's so agonizingly slow is like a spit in the face of every person that enjoyed and got something meaningful out of Naruto. God fucking damn it.

Also in this latest chapter Momoshiki mentions "Kara dregs" and knowing Code had the fruit. Fucking how? How would Momoshiki know of Kara when in his first appearance he intended to destroy the Earth, ssucking it dry using his tree with NO Knowledge of the fact Isshiki was there or had an organization under him.

The people in the Naruto universe carry weapons and technology that would allow 1940s-1970s era methods of combat yet fight as if they’re still in the copper age. This fact bugs me.

It’s been revealed on multiple occasions that civilians in the Naruto franchise have access to steam power, explosives, mechanical devices and electricity. This ultimately means weapons like guns(which can be seen in one panel of shippuden), tanks, jets, artillery, warships, mass production of weapons and food(this is especially important because more food means more potential fighters and workers), heavy bombs etc can all exist and this ultimately means that if any society in Naruto ever used these weapons in combat a small army equipped with these weapons could potentially take down a hokage but just don’t which creates massive plot holes that only get more aggravating in the show to think about considering how drawn out most fights are, not to mention the chronically low amount of troops used in most armed conflicts…

This doesn’t even get into other shit that’s blatantly shown in Naruto and Naruto shippuden like the fact that the main characters have access to radio based mics but can’t produce satellites or radios that can dox a targets location wait shit no they do have that and birds that can do the same and rarely use them, why street lights are seen all over the hidden leaf village dating as far back as the first episode of Naruto but no one can make LEDs or circuit screens, why everyone dresses in the most overly revealing clothing imaginable etc etc

I’m not even gonna get into the ninjutsu shit because that gives me a different kind of headache

>fight as if they’re still in the copper age
LMAO no.
chakra like magic makes technological advances in weaponry rather less likely and the verse itself is only some centuries old, since Kaguya's time, so the anachronistic advancements are more plausible.
Ninja move so fast in verse that getting a bead on them is pretty much impossible, and the guns are usually flintlocks, something that is nearly a millenia old IRL. Radios are old as shit too and telegraphs existed before those.
>radios that can dox a targets location
Radios do not function like that, certainly not those kinds of radios.
>tanks, jets, artillery, warships
All pointless given ninjutsu and ninjas that can punch, lift and kick with several tons of force as children. Aircraft aren't really a priority in a non-industrialized society based on national mercantile armies using devastating life-energy-based magic, any tank and artillery that in't immediately on the level of the past couple decades IRL are fodder.
Also they do have trains as far back as before Shippuden and airships and trucks too, for civilians and mostly rich ones.
>mass production of weapons and food
They do, kunai and shuriken and basic katanas are mass-produced in Narutoverse and only specific special weapons are custom made. Same for food.
>a small army equipped with these weapons could potentially take down a hokage

VNs sometimes have that problem if you don't have the right fonts


why the fuck are eroge so funny bros


Japanese grammar is different from western languages grammar so unless you put a lot of care in your translation it will sound weird. The problem is more obvious in eroge and hentai because thoses are translated by coomers who are satisfied with just making the moonrunes intelligible for a western audience and aren't the most bothered by the elegance of writing style in their fap material.


There's no elegance in fucking nukige either you dumb wapanese.

File: 1633311262612.jpg (142.2 KB, 1200x900, 1631285986931.jpg)

mc is a good looking lower middle class high school student with actual samurai ancestry. great great grandfather's katana is exposed in his house living room.
in that stuff they must write for the school with the careers goals and such, he writes in the first place yakuza, in the second hikkikomori. when confronted about it by the teacher accusing him of just wanting to slack around at the expenses of others he unapologetically says that it has always been like that: it's what fat cats in society do but don't get any reprimand for it on the contrary they are praised. and, specificating that if it was in his power he would end all of that, if he can't be on the top, isn't anyway going to slave for others, against which he would prefere to die.
further in the story he concludes that the real nature and spirit of japan is lazyness. then he gets the idea of starting a nationalist movement with the program of fighting the evil euro influences (working ethic, prussian edu…). to add credibility to his nationalism he becomes a weeb, wearing kimonos, going to folk stuff (all things he despised as an anti-social). starts taking kendo classes to beat people more proficiently in the streets along with his delinquent friends he hangs around with. his nazbol group ends constantly clashing against far right goons, deemed by him as german inspired fash. violence. gets jailed. meets real yakuza in prison. becomes a yakuza. he's the only one of his classmates who made it.


So basically a delinquent-becomes-the-mafia story but Japanized

I think you make a good point but that's only because the story presents itself like that.


File: 1638381639571.jpg (11.33 KB, 480x360, death not3.jpg)

its just facts
the whole show is just the idea of bringing back the death penalty with the efficiency of immediate results - the only moral disagreement is either the idea that killing is inherently wrong (which it obviously isnt, for violent criminals) or that violent crime should be forgiven (which costs time and money and public morality, really).
Near and L make it about the morality of holding absolute power - but if kira doesnt then who does? the state? its the same difference. near calls light a "serial killer" yet kira shows empirical improvements to civilisation - theres no real grey area, which would have improved the show's complexity - if it showed kira mercilessly slaying petty thieves who were poor or whatever, that would have been good - but i think the creators are clearly on the side of light, which is why he loses in the most autistic way possible - because he couldnt lose if he really wanted to win - but i guess you can say that he lost because of his narcissism or whatever, but nobody really thinks the ending is epic, except his evil laugh and stuff.
i support the death penalty so maybe i am biased, but not supporting it also must have its justifications, its not simply given on its own terms.
kira was cleaning up the trash - imagine if a real bad guy got the death note, a guy killing world leaders and destabilising the earth. kira is very conservative since he rules by his own self-righteousness and not by chaos.


True, but as >>10179 and >>10178 pointed out, his methods are les than ideal, and come from narcissism rather than as genuine justice.


Light doesn't kill criminals only, since he killed L and tried to kill the special task force, and they were not criminals -being opposed to Kira while doing nothing wrong is a crime in the new world?-, also he uses Misa for his own fucked up purposes, he never does the shit he does because he's "good" he does all that because he's a massive faggot with a narcissistic personality disorder that wants to be a literal god, he even says so himself multiple times.

Fuck him and fuck his simps.


Near is kind of a chad though. That motherfucker doesn't give two fucks about nothing.
