Not much of a vtuber fan, I only occasionally watch clips, but I'm saddened to hear that even something as innocent as the vtuber sphere has been infected with politics and will breed new reactionaries out of lonely people with nothing better to do. Is no form of escapism safe from politics anymore?

>the Rule 34 hentai crowd who have made thousands of lewds
This is such a funny way of putting it. Like masturbating to porn is some obscure niche only a handful of people do.


I mean masturbating to anime lolis is, while not all exactly super rare, is also not really common either. I would estimate that idk, less than 10% of men do this.


That's a lot of people.


Rule 34 is a large audience… but out of the population is a tiny portion of people, even if we exclude those that have no internet or computers.


>I would estimate that idk, less than 10% of men do this.

What data are you using to come to this conclusion

And wow, I fucking hated it to be perfectly honest. It seems like the entire show is only about Shinji's angst (and Rei increasingly I'm sure) and the characters various emotional issues, but like, okay, who cares? The situations they're thrown into are totally absurd and ridiculous so how can I take any of this drama stuff seriously?

Like these kids are the last best hope of mankind and they seem to be totally unsupported by anyone? Shinji was gonna live in a totally empty tenement and it's only his superior's minor moment of reasonable judgement that means he lives with her instead (and she is clearly no kind of parent figure), and Rei lives in a dark, dingy slum dwelling made of all concrete with nobody taking care of her either?

Like, their emotional reactions seems somewhat understandable but also completely dull and uninteresting because the situation they're in is absurd (and even then they both come off as pathetic and unlikeable - and no you can't say 'but that's the point!!', that doesn't make it entertaining to watch).

The less said about the non-angst portions of the story the better, the 'fights' are 10 minutes of foreplay for like 60 seconds of action if that, and while that's a common problem with anime, that doesn't make it excusable.

Yes this series is old and I'm sure it has inspired so much but people still recommend to watch it and it just seemed like garbage. Almost nothing is explained which means I can't possibly feel invested in this absurd world in any way. Every part of the setting seems to have been created with 'style over substance' in mind, urgh, just overall I found it absurd. Try not to give too much spoilers because I guess I might still try watch it, but I really don't see it redeeming itself.

Though for context I also hated 'The Godfather' and 'No Country For Old Men' and thought they were pretentious overlong shit, so maybe I'm just a contrarian.

Piccolo and Goku having to get their driver's licenses is a really fun idea.


youtube essayists have done so much damage to media literacy, now everyone is some dumb utilitarian obsessed with plotholes and "advancing the plot"


>This doesn't happen in Evangelion for obvious reason
Where did I say it did? Evangelion has no filler. It just has proper pacing where sometimes things happen besides giant mecha fights. You gave a good definition of filler so idk why you were acting like using the word makes you a certain kind of person.


Less youtube essayists and more youtube "critics". NTA btw.

Agreed. Filler can be really fun or even be good worldbuilding, as long as you're not obsessed with "what next, next, next!" Although I suppose the hate for filler comes from the old days of TV-episodes where you'd be waiting for the continuation of the story that left off last week, only to get something else, which made people impatient.

Yeah, no matter what happens we're not getting Miura's version of Berserk's ending. Might as well make the best version you can with what you got from him. If some essence of the story is lost because he didn't communicate it, that's still lost even if they try to preserve 1:1 what he did share.


A little like Mozart's final piece that was finished by one of his colleagues.


Yes, but only a little, because this is Miura's magnum opus.

>goblinfag derailing shit by trying to legitimize their shitty manga by comparing it to a GOAT manga
A year late to the party but that's not what it was at all. Goblin-Slayer poster mentioned that part of the appeal of the manga is the merciless slaughter of monstrous, iredeemable enemies in gory fashion. That is correct. They in no way stated that Goblin Slayer is the same as Berserk. They merely made an observation about Goblin Slayer being atypical in the focus on Goblins rather than comedic hijinks or 'epic monsters' as is the usual for many current anime/manga.

everyone seems to like it, but ngl the og 2d anime design is really charming


I loved the original but didn't really care for this remake. I thought they took everything that made the original interesting and tossed it out the window.


I like both designs tbh. They both exemplify their given aesthetic eras in visually striking ways

Pic rel was a fucking hilarious freudian slip by a shitposter on FunnyJunk.


Tf is funnyjunk?


It used to be a 4chan x reddit lite site that was fairly popular among school kids because it was accessible unlike 4chan which was blocked by a lot of school DNS's. It lost a lot of users over time as the forum closed itself to anonymous users and is kinda just a relic of a different time on the internet. There was even a version of leftypol on it at one time.

I just saved pic rel a long while back.

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

Delinquents/yankii/banchou/sukeban are so fucking cool.

I wanted to get into delinquent manga from the 70s-80s starting with Sakigake!! Otokojuku. I torrented the whole manga's raws to practice my Japanese, as well, but I could never get around to reading it.
Likewise, even though it's not 2D (but it is adapted from manga) I torrented all of Sukeban Deka and could never watch more than 1 episode.
Unfortunately, I lost them both when my laptop broke.

Could you please recommend more delinquent stuff? Even if it's just one character in a series that's not about delinquents. If there's something like a rec chart that'd be pretty cool. If, not, we could make one.

I'm watching this anime right now
loving it so far, lol'd many times


But why tho?


Cromartie High School - Opening | "Jun" by Takuro Yoshida

IN case the Embed dies.


Bungo Stray Dogs sort of fits this, it has delinquents as characters.


I think “Ashita no Joe” qualifies

Huh, I never heard of that, got a link to it.

>Very heavily traditionalist
In what way is cute schoolgirls driving tanks and engaging in tank battles traditional?


I just realized it's a mecha anime.


I mean technically you're not exactly wrong.


Buhanochka is a gijinka of the UAZ-452 'Buhanka' (bread loaf) van of the USSR which was widely used, including in the military, even to this day. When they appeared at the beginning of the SMO February 2022, they got memed by Russian anime enthusiasts and this was quickly picked up by /chug/. It's gotten to the point where the character has hundreds of images on a booru and a VK page dedicated to her and other gijinka of the conflict.


However I digress. Why I'm posting it in this thread is because I noticed off-handedly that Buhanochka reminds me of Katyusha, especially when the latter is in her tank-helmet, which makes me wonder if the Russians that started the meme were 'inspired' by the character… or maybe I'm wrong and it's just generic battle-loli aesthetics.


I wish Jmantime finished his Soviet characters series and animations, there was some potential similar to kutsuzure sensen >>6170

Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either.

The Minato Oneshot focused more on Kushina than Minato but it was pretty fun to see OG style Kishimoto manga illustrations. It's such a balm. I hope Kishimoto does more of these prequel One Shots for Jiraiya.

Sarada's attitude, haircut and glasses in Part 1 Boruto reminds me of Velma of Scooby Doo. Particularly Mystery Inc.


who reads / watches baruto? why?


File: 1693586723800.png (1.7 MB, 1080x1239, ClipboardImage.png)

Ironically Boruto Two Blue Vortex sold well, it was the third best seller this month for Shonen, with One Piece being Number 1. I'm guessing its mostly the new generation of anime-fans that either don't remember or didn't watch Naruto, and have lower standards of watchability because of the flood of single season SoL and Isekai garbage. I only read it occasionally, just for the keks. Of course Boruto fans are pretty… unintelligent, even for weebs. Some of it can be excused as kids not knowing better, but damn if there aren't a lot of "adults" that defend it.


The Naruto Toonami trailers were epic as all hell, Toonami in general was hype, bringing epic energy to it.
