Why does it feel as though the prevalence of Japanese culture in anime and manga hobbyist platforms has lessened despite the increasing popularity of the medium in the west? Has it simply become too widely available for it to have any permanence?

Think about the last time you saw shit like gachimuchi (that wasn’t made by a westerner aping the old content), nico medleys (which still get made today), content like Mou Ikkai, Geddan, Okkusenman, Miku stuff like Fukkireta, etc. I haven’t seen anything close to that on most western anime imageboards in many years. The best you see are the “go to Futaba and bring something back” (and calling it "2chan") threads but even those get a couple of posts or simply get deleted on the big places like 4chin these days.

Now it's just """"""""discussing""""""""" the stuff you're watching/reading, no more generating or sharing niche stuff made by fans.


It's not just here, the contradictions and worsening of capitalism has made Japanese hobbyist culture die out since 2013 or so due to their companies growing more aggressive causing people to get more complacent with spending, cancelling others for copyright infringement, posting about their gacha rolls, etc. in place of creating.


you sound spooked as fuck my guy, why does it not count when it's content made for a jp vtuber instead of for an anime, or a meme from japanese twitter like the I字 thing which i saw tons of reposts of on other boards, or those GYARI vocaloid videos which were fucking all over the place
>>15781 is true for sure but i really don't think it's as bleak as you're making it seem



ya, japan is part of the imperialist triad, I think it's being coopted for the sake of soft power influence just like Hollywood spreads their media all over the world, after the economic collapse they've been moving away from a dirgisme style economy towards neoliberalism at the prompting of American sanctions.

How much fluorite do I have to distill in order to enjoy this? Can I safely skip episodes 3-10?

Why did they only go back in time once? That does not make sense. Singularity implies all timelines converge to the same outcome. So… what gives?


I think they use singularity in the tech sense of artificial intelligences becoming sentient and rebelling against the humans, not in the metaphysical sense. The point of a single time travel is to try and make a new timeline where the events that supposedly caused the robots' killing spree have been altered, thus avoiding said killing spree. It's not amazing sci-fi, but the premise is certainly passable. The real theme of the show is the age-old question of what separates humans from sufficiently advanced robots, which is why I feel that to call the middle parts of the show filler is to entirely miss the point, because the show isn't really about a mission to save the world (though it is that as well), but about what makes Vivy or any other robot different from a human being.


>The real theme of the show is the age-old question of what separates humans from sufficiently advanced robots
If it is, then Episodes 3 through 10 are objectively filler. Since they're about an android trying to make humanity happy through song


anglo ideology strikes again


I don't even know what you're saying dude. Are you somehow denying the importance of this main theme?


Post old otaku culture links and stuff

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

i wonder if it's because statistically women who have had multiple partners aren't going to end with you as their final partner. the more partners she's had the less likely she's going to settle with you. there is an instinctive drive to form long term bonds for the raising of children that has an influence on the sexual fantasies of males. maybe its because of that?


of course thats not just otaku fantasy it's male instinct. it just comes out more in otakus since they're less socially filtered then normies who keep these kind of thoughts and feelings to themselves and then virtue signal they don't feel that way because its expected of them.


Okay, this is beautiful, what the hell.

VERY early anime penetration into America. Apparently this was a regular Sunday night thing on the channel and they played some real bangers.

Reminds me how sister at 15 created a fake persona of a 19 year old girl and catfished some 25 year old guy online to fuck her. Luckily for him she was of legal age. She did same with someone else as well.


yeah but that's a given

What a let down. First Sonny Boy… now this… why are the japes so bad at finishing up a story?


The japanese seem to be mired in a cultural incapability of breaking away from their own tropes without it being heavy handed and then going back on it.
The only recent examples that aren't overdosed on tropes is hayashida q's, fukumoto nobuyuki, togashi yoshiro and fujimoto tatsuki


If it's merely a trope, that means they should understand it conceptually, and capable of proper execution.

Got any hopes for CDPR and Trigger's joint project?


They will never be able to live up to the standards of Inferno Cop.


it's trigger so i will consoom it
can anyone who played cyberpunk tell me if it's anti-capitalist or if trigger can make the anime so?


The most anticapitalist message in CP77 is its release. Also Trigger will only work on direction and animation afaik.


I mean Cyberpunk 2077 is pretty indistinct (by design) in terms of setting and plot so I'm just thinking of it as another Trigger anime. Meaning it will be either "overall pretty good but with some noticeable lulls" or "completely unremarkable"


so it will just be a Darling in the franxx where it's probably written like shit but there is cool animation.

You're an idiot.


there are anime/manga conventions all over the west and there has been since the 90s, however it’s obviously import-oriented so there isn’t much of a creator-fan synergy that the japanese ones have and it’s mostly just lonely middle class consoomers

Ain't that the truth. At least you've still got some cosplayers actually making their own costumes and artists selling their stuff, but it's mostly marked up Japanese (or Chinese knockoffs) imports.
Where I live we don't even get interesting panels or otaku-themed raves.


Arguments: none.


>idiot doesn't get there's no point arguing with an idiot
of course
