"Mitsugu" version of the opening was just posted a couple days ago. It looks like the rest of the show is gonna be dumped onto streaming sites this Sunday.

I suppose it could be kind of like Gall Force. Doesn't seem like it though.

Would this be funnier if I was Japanese? Because it's awful.

What is your guys opinion on Vagabond and how can a deaf Man such as Kojiro be such a Gigachad

I've had the torrent downloaded for maybe 2 years now for both of these manga, but I got caught up in berserk.
Which do I read first?


Whichever you like. Since this thread is about Vagabond, maybe you want to start with it

When will Inoue decide to draw again? It's been over 5 years. I want to see the final battle between Musashi and Kojiro.


>duhh this manga in the MAL top 10 is actually very obscure and not for casuals
Real is far better.


Real is better in fact, but that doesn't make Vagabond bad. Imo Inoue doesn't even know to write bad manga

Can he be considered the greatest Anime Director ever or does the Crown still go to Miyazaki?

If he is, what makes puts his work in a class of his own?
If he is not, why do you think he is overrated?

Who makes an animated film about regular people doing regular things? Why not just make it live action?


> radlib



To show off your animating skillz


Some things can only be expressed through animation. Satoshi Kon is widely known for cutting his own films, and the cuts themselves are much shorter and thus convey more information than what is feasibly possible in live action film.


Not him, but i find that the themes of escapism and consumerism or whatever that permeate his work are treated in too straightforward and near-sighted a manner. It's probably the biggest reason why Perfect Blue has become a staple of the pretentious weeb canon, it's critical of it's own audience but more in a conservative way that's supposed to fill you with pure disgust rather than actually make you think about the distinction between the real and virtual or whatever. Tokyo Godfathers is good kino tho

Hey! I just scanned and uploaded a collection of Genpei Akasegawa's left wing political cartoons from the 1970s. You can find it here:


It contains Concerned Theatre Japan's English translation of the special issue. Although I didn't realize it was already on mangadex:


More information about both Genpei Akasegawa's manga/illustration work as well as Concerned Theatre Japan:

This is really cool, and good work posting those indeed.

>Japanese Left

Never sure what to make of the Japanese New Leftists. ThEy seem to embody both the worst and the best things of the New Left generation. Regardless, their history seems very interesting, so there should be more posted about that here, if it's not off topic to do so.

Wish I could help with the translating, but I can't. :-(

You are most welcome! Again I hope scanlators will pick it up at some point; do please share it with other people.
Yeah, scholarship on Japanese Old/New Left movements are pretty scarce. Aside from Gavin Walker and Patricia G. Steinhoff, there are few contemporary English-speaking scholars who're actually talking about them. From a cursory glance, New Left schisms from the JCP seem very similar to the Trotskyist splinter sects from CPUSA just a few decades prior only much, much more violent. I'm sure a Paul Le Blanc type figure could write a multi-volume series on them alone. Gavin Walker actually has a new book that came out recently; it contains translations of essays on the "Japanese '68"—here's an epub.


What's that second picture supposed to mean?


I wish I could tell you.


Bumping for interest.

I've had difficulty suspending my disbelief with Dr. Stone more and more lately, but this character is really stretching it close to the breaking point.
3 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Yeah that isn't Suika. This is a new character that just happened to get unpetrified independently of everyone else at almost the same time as everyone else and just happens to have a useful set of skills the team needs.


For me it's the incredible overload of characters to keep track of: the cast of Dr. Stone is practically a fashion show at this point.

Technology progression is also ridiculous at times in a way that really strains the reader's credulity. Apparently Senku is such a turbo genius he apparently knows an improved form of chemical vapor deposition for making diamonds, and the entire team is so gosh darn amazing at craftsmanship they can convert one form of complicated machinery to another while being chased.


The writer wasn't a hentai author, it's seems that was only the illustrator.


Then I have no idea why the fuck it's like this.


Elaborate on the hentai logic thing because it makes sense, but doesn't make sense at the same time.

The means of shotaproduction are yet to be developed to the extent which the other similar threads have been.




I'd post some pictures if I didn't feel guilty about liking them Besides, nothing can surpass Boku no Pico in my heart


Uphold the immortal science of Marxist Shotaism against Marxist Loliist revisionism.

general gundam thread
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


>When looking for quality Gundam stories it's best if you look for G Gundam.


> G Gundam
even Wing is better lmao


I don't understand why anyone even bothers with the Gundam franchise if they can't learn to appreciate Tomino. Nearly all of Sunrise's attempts at replicating his success within UC have fallen flat one way or the other, from Stardust Memory to Narrative. So I kind of agree with you in the sense that it's like a Star Wars situation where what you can do with the defined tropes is very limited, but Tomino is well aware of this; it's why he hasn't directed a UC Gundam show in almost 30 years. Fans have been pining for adaptations of his novels for just as long; like, to be honest I would kill for a Gaia Gear film, but I'll settle for Hathaway's Flash. As for Gundam not in the Universal Century: SEED is garbage, 00 is just okay, and IBO was a slog to get through. Speaking of which, Wing has aged like milk; I tried rewatching it recently and just couldn't find the will to finish it. I strongly disagree with you here >>5910 as well; I thoroughly enjoyed my rewatch of G Gundam last year. It's far better than from what I remembered.


yes and you will enjoy it


Also the best quality of G Gundam is that it doesn't even attempt to "be" (copy) Gundam.

I personally think the mere concept of giant karate robots with street fighter II inspired national stereotypes is way too silly for me. I'm fully aware that I'm a hypocrite for not extending the same disdain to regular giant mecha doing retarded shit but I don't give a fuck honestly.

Are there any hopes for socialism in super capitalist japan or is it doomed forever?
6 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


Marxist thought has been thriving in Japan since the turn of the 20th century. To this day it remains criminally understudied by western scholars. See this recent essay by Gavin Walker for examples:



performances have been so roundly mediocre that it basically doesn't matter. For example if you want to compare parliamentary representation, Britain has a lower population than Japan, more MPs in total, yet fewer communist MPs (0) with worse historical election results (peak MPs at election: 2) and fewer members (CPJ has 270,000, which would put it about on par with the Liberal Democrats or Scottish Nationalists on a per-capita basis)

(this of course ignores voting systems, but they're not of spectacular relevance either)


The left is the one that more consistently opposes the bases and occupation though.
However the electoral opposition is weak and too cucked. The one recent instance where there was a centre left, it capitulated only about a year on most of its hallmark policies. That they can't get the former PM on substantial anything despite the evident corruption and yet fixate on that avenue of action reminds of the Israeli centrist left somewhat. The government supposedly legally have the radicals surveilled by agencies, also.
There's a thread on the manga of the New Left somewhere on this board, actually.


Because opposition, whether armed or otherwise, has been systematically repressed by the US-backed Liberal Democratic Party. Japan has effectively been a one-party state since the occupation began. Like, there are members of the Japanese Red Army, United Red Army and East-Asia Anti-Japan Armed Front who're still alive, in prison. The rest have all either died of natural causes or await execution. I suspect the JCP has only seen a surge in membership strictly because the JSP collapsed in 1996, and the SDP sucks ass.


The Japanese communist party is surprisingly strong, here is a good video on them from a video series that covers the basics of Japanese politics (from a non-Leftist perspective) however.
