Yes, I find his movies very commercial. There's nothing inherently wrong with that but when you combine it with his public persona I find it grating

 No.23254

Don't want to piss anyone off but I always considered Miyazaki's movies to be too much of what people call "comfy" and "chill." I don't like stuff like The Laid-Back Camp much. Maybe I'm too dense all the time and can't force myself to relax, can't help myself. That's the reason I don't watch much kodomomuke or shoujo or iyashikei or romcoms or slice-of-lifes, I'm just too much of a grumpy old man who is unable to enjoy nice things (yeah, I'm the opposite of an average anime enjoyer).

Princess Mononoke and Porco Rosso seem kinda interesting though.

I didn't mean "commercial." I'm sure Mr. Miyazaki genuinely likes what he's doing. I'm just not that kind of person who's into the overall feel of his works, they're like Disney fairytales and I tend to shy away from fairytales and other softer stuff like that.

To be honest, Porco and Mononoke are closer to what his movies are actually about than people on the internet really seem to realize.

Miyazaki has kind of become the Wes Anderson of anime - his style has been meme'd and caricatured by people who haven't really engaged his work and probably haven't even seen much of his stuff. Most people act like all of his movies are just wholesome, comfy slice of life - when really, only Totoro and Kiki's Delivery Service are really consistenty like that.

Miyazaki's movies certainly have a pastoral vibe and have extended "cozy" sequences, but everyone forgets that those scenes are often followed by imagery of either mass destruction and violence or weird, fucked-up organic corruption. Everyone acts like Totoro is emblematic of the man's filmography, while forgetting that this is the same guy who made Porco Rosso, Castle in the Sky, Nausicaa, The Boy and the Heron and Princess Mononoke, all works that have either heavy themes, extended sequences of apocalyptic or unsettling imagery - hell, we're talking about the guy who got his start directing Lupin the Third

Miyazaki ain't no wholesome director. There's a real darkness in his work that the internet keeps whitewashing thanks to cinematically illiterate hipster-weebs

The late 1830s, Engels (the male self-insert) is a literal angel sent by god to save the world. Marx is a lazy, sharp-tongued tsundere with pink hair that is always fighting with her friend, the energetic tomboy (with brown/orange hair) Willich. Feuerbach, the cool-headed and reliable big sister/teacher character (black, long hair) often gives them tutelage and advice. Around episode 8 it is discovered that Feuerbach is literally the antichrist and that she is the leader of the shadowy cabal that has been conspiring against the group (mostly because she is jealous of Marx and wants Engels for herself). Engels defeats her in an intense final battle, after which he rejects Willich, who had proposed him around episode 6 after the beach trip, and proposes to Marx - she accepts, and the anime ends as they finally kiss on the ferry to London.
Yes, all the young hegelians besides Engels have to be women.

That implies they aren't all equal in their roles.

I suggest they be an adventurer guild of pretty girls in an isekai that are constantly bitching amongst each other and failing every mission because of that. Then Max Stirner comes along, makes a harem (including the tsundere Marx), defeats all the spooks and wins, the end.

OP's image is from Waltz with Bashir which ends up being a very anti-Israeli movie. The whole movie is spent interviewing zionist warmongers and sucking them off, only to do a shocking about-face in the last 10 minutes where the cartoon filters come off and uncensored footage of their murders of Palestinian women and children is shown without mercy to the audience. surprised nobody ITT mentioned it. I watched it back when it came out and it totally broke the spell of MSM hypnosis on me w/r/t israel (tbf I barely knew anything about israel)

There is no Japanese culture. Most of what exists is a construct created to keep the citizens hikkimorized, supine servants of western hegemony. It's so successful it was exported to Korea and now it's come home to the metropole.

How much is a normal price for sushi? The local grocery store sells like, 3 rolls for 10 USD and a plate for 15, and 10 bucks seems rediculous for just one meal where the main ingredient is rice.

How's the manga coming along?
Stopped two years ago when they caught some chick a year ago, and forgot to check up.

The series seems cool, it was just too slow on uploads despite feeling like a massive story that needs to be told.
Similar with Vinland Saga, but at least Vinland doesn't have a bad arc after its anime adaption.

Always a peculiar feeling when I'm checking a mangaka's twitter and it's filled with retweets of Amerikan political bullshit. Most recent one even had Joe Rogan's clips about the covid vaccine.

Everything about the "Otaku Murderer" case was pure bullshit. Literal self-admitted planted evidence for mass media hysteria. The Japanese media have a history of trying to make someone the big bad evil guy for drama, they did the same for Sengoku Takeyoshi by painting him as the cult leader mastermind that abducted young girls when he’s literally just a nice guy.
