It's funny I found this picture, because I was also thinking of plastering Shana on my car too. Too bad it costs at least a couple of thousand of dollars.

I'm browsing Pixiv for Shana pictures right now. I'm guessing I wouldn't get in trouble if I paid someone to print out an illustration I don't own and paid someone to put it on my car, because the US isn't Japan.

Well, as far as I know, that's quite literally what the "ita" means, in addition to being a reference to how expensive they are.
>In the 1980s, when Japan was at the zenith of its economic might, Tokyo's streets were a parade of luxury import cars. Among them, the "itasha"—originally Japanese slang meaning an imported Italian car—was the most desired. Since then, itasha (as the decorated vehicle) was derived from combining the Japanese words for itai (痛い, painful) and sha (車, vehicle).[3] Itai here means "painful", with additional senses of "painfully embarrassing" → "cringeworthy", "painful for the wallet" due to the high costs involved, or "painful to look at" (an eyesore). The name is also a pun for Italian cars (イタリア車, Itaria-sha), truncated in Japanese slang as Itasha (イタ車).[4]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itasha

>Ita-bags serve to publicly express how much their owners love a particular fictional character or media franchise. In that respect, they are the equivalent of itasha, "painmobiles", which are cars covered with fandom-themed stickers and decals.[5] In both cases, the "pain" refers to the pain inflicted on the bag or car, and to the owner's wallet. Ita-bags are an expensive hobby, given that some buttons are of a limited edition and command high prices. Some fans spend more than the equivalent of a thousand U.S. dollars on their ita-bags.[1] When creating ita-bags, fans often "buy the same item many times."[3]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ita-bag

<When creating ita-bags, fans often "buy the same item many times."

Wow, I remember buying all of the (identical) buttons of a particular character I liked back in my teenage years, just so no one else would have them, once. Maybe I could use them for an itabag. Too bad I will never like Shitalia as much as I used to. Maybe an itabag for all the megane characters I like?
Also I wonder if my anime button-covered backpack in middle school counted as an itabag.

yeah…and I don't know if Inoue plans on picking it up again. I read an interesting theory that Musashi's journey in Vagabond served as an allegory for Inoues own "journey" at the time. When he started writing, he was apparently a depressed and impulsive man like Musashi himself, but at where the story is now, Musashi is more or less a mature man who slayed most of his demons. The only thing left narratively is the fight with Kojiro anyway, so Inoue probably felt that a hiatus won't harm the story, since his protagonist's story is finished.
Now he wants to focus on the more "fun" things like real apparently.

OK then I'll just stick to ItsuKyon.
"Want to sleep on your side" is a lost ItsuKyon doujinshi series that I downloaded in English a long time ago in my teenage years (around 2011), but it's impossible to find online now, because the scanlator's Livejournal (Ebil Trio) is gone. Such a shame, I was waiting for the last chapter to be translated.
And I think I saved it all in a pen drive that I lost somewhere, probably at an internet café. It had all my yaoi in it. And I still wonder what reaction the person who found it had when they took a look at the contents, lol.

Have you ever noticed that a large portion of anime and manga expresses the desire to escape from the monotony of late capitalism in Japan? There's a prevalence of scenarios in seinen (young adult / 20-50s~) media which protagonists are taken in by loving females. As well as a bulk of romcoms to support Japan's large population of "herbivore males" (men uninterested in relationships.)
Anime was a different medium during the Japanese economic boom, then shifted into a much more niche market in correlation to Japan's long economic recession. I would argue there's a continuity in the fanbase in spite of anime's reorientation. It's simply that the demographic which supports has gone through a visible degeneration as the economy has degenerated. I would make no fault of "otakus" for being the way they are and the media they eat up, but rather the stifling corporate climate. Japan is perhaps worse than the US than in working conditions.

Same copy as is on BakaBT. You can download this torrent from Nyaa, then seed it from your BakaBT account and get free ratio.

If 9.5 GB is too large a file for you, https://nyaa.si/?f=0&c=1_2&q=bagi and take the [Orphan] or the [fong] torrents for less quality. Those both will also check & seed at BakaBT for free ratio.

A lot of cyberpunk anime like Alita Battle Angel bring me a sense of Catharsis, as it depicts depressing stuff but also hope and deep meanings.

I also found catharsis, in Naruto , in the moments like Naruto's fight with Pain-Nagato and his fight with Gaara, and even more his fight of ideologies with Obito.

before you read this, can we all agree toonami was what made anime mainstream in america? ok?
So like the subject says there is a clear age gap in the anime/manga community. It's split
into two of the most soy filled baby generations y and z. For people around my age(late 90sfetuses)
We grew up in the tail end of toonami. Basically the era of Naruto and One Piece, this explains
why Naruto and One Piece is more consumed by zoomers while the previous gen grew up with dbz
and pokemon and maybe sailor moon. Folks around my age mainly grew up with NAruto on CN
one piece had a pretty shitty first impression and it didn't last that long on CN anyways
so this is why Naruto is more liked with zoomers. Anyways there's this new gen of anime fags
that don't know nothing about Naruto and one piece. There are literally fetuses lurking the internet
who where babies when attack on titan came out. I propose we should name this generation of /a/ fags gen 3

Unfortunately it is, and one would be hard pressed to find any country of national liberation movements that maintains a Soviet style economy today.
They can't be blamed for it exactly, nonetheless, because the latter half of the 1900s was a more and more difficult time for socialists, and for all the slander of their socialist systems that is correctly debunked here, conditions have been undeniably improved, even under reform, from those times. Without a superpower such as the Soviet Union, what choice was there for them.
If China had cleaved to the path that it took in the first decades of its reestablishment, even when the conditions were more and more inhospitable for socialism, undoubtably the blame for the miserable state of affairs would eventually fall upon socialism, as occurred in the USSR in the 90s. At the least now, for all the attendant problems of reform and openin and the capitalist infiltration, the youth can have the maneuvre room to reevaluate the legacy of the earlier revolutionary years more positively, without the spectre of poverty to be used against them.

I'm not entirely sure whether this is the right place to post this but I thought that some of you might appreciate it sure here I am. The manga is centered the Sanrizuka peasantry's struggle against the erection of an airport on their land and therefore echoes many of the themes discussed on this site.
