Discussion of the way that Animators are treated in the Anime industry. Firstly. why are animators treated like shit? Why don't they try forming unions? You're thoughts on this whole Animator Dormitory project? How can the West (I'm assuming that most of Bunkerchan is yankees and eurofags) help?

Here's the video about piracy/emulation I mentioned, to share with your non-leftist friends


Fuck, actually I think it was this one. But both are probably good.

This movie series was just a response to the malaise among young men in japan tired of being salarymen. The problem anno has here and where he failed in this laughable endeavor is the same problem Japanese society has overall: you simply haven't provided enough of an incentive to justify this soulless lifestyle. You can imply it's supposed to be "rewarding" but what is the actual reward? If "rewarding" just means "you'll feel good that you did a good job," that's not a reward. That's just an empty platitude. It pretends to be nuanced and just ends being MORE escapism, as well as other shit. Fuck 4.0 and have mercy on the souls of the over-worked fools forced to make that awful CGI.

So in the latest DBS Storyline there's a group of porkies who used to commission the Freiza Force and use their Saiyans to destroy a planet and it's residents and then clean things up and then sell it to the highest bidder for money. What is the real world equivalent for such a practice? Ah yes Advanced Real Estate Development. The Cerelians were genocided by the saiyans on the orders of Freiza who was paid by the Heeters. After they did it. They sold it to another people who were out of a home called the Sugarians
What would be the real world terms for all parties involved and which historical event most resembles this tale? I don't think most real estate development involves genocide after all. But, man Toriyama's real hates real estate agents holy shit, Was the original Frieza and Saiyan arc not enough?

Anyone have this video? It's private now but it was a new Dragon Ball animation demos to replace the weird CG shit of Super


So this is the power… of DBS memery. They literally made Ultra Instinct Shaggy canon in the WB Universe

It's from the latest Mortal Kombat animated movie


I just watched dragon ball super for the first time. I "binged" the entire thing every night for the past 2 months.

The first two arcs are boring and drag on for too long which is to be expected since they were written as movies.
Goku Black's arc has a great soundtrack but the plot doesn't make any fucking sense; there are some cool fights here and there though, and LE MYSTERY adequately carries half of the saga.

Now for the hot take: the Universe Survival arc is awful. Dragon Ball has never been coherent with power levels (which all things considered is mostly autism, but still), however this arc not only ignores any notion of them existing but actively contradicts them ever being relevant (bro android 17 is as strong as a god because he destroys tanks on a remote island LOOL).
Fanwank aspergers aside, the first half is incredibly superfluous and, even worse, boring. We know all these guys are going into the tournament and we all know what they can do, the only swerve is Frieza getting in at the cost of Buu getting done dirty, which sucks massive dick because Buu has a really entertaining fight ""style"" compared to the rest of the more orthodox cast. IMO Frieza should've taken Roshi's place because the old master has no business being in that tournament, the man gets throughly btfo by dragon ball era Ten Shin Han, who's shown to be a massive load in the tournament despite dedicating his entire life to training martial arts, all the while Roshi faps on his island yet he's somehow stronger thanTtien; Piccolo can also perform the Mafuba so we don't need Roshi to get that technique in.
Then in the tournament itself, the battle royale part is the worst kind of filler: battle filler, and with a gallery of retarded enemies we know nothing about too (base Kefla looked really cool I'll admit).
The final showdown between U7 vs U11 is when things finally pick up yet the >muh strategy angle is kinda dropped here too in favour of standard shonen asspulls despite being the part where strategy would've mattered the most, since Jiren and Top are stupidly and unreasonably overpowered, yet Top gets taken out by a chump in a 1v1 without any iota of reason, so it's "funny" that they only apply strategy against Dispo who is easily the weakest out of the three and could probably get btfo by Goku alone.
And don't get me started on Jiren's backstory, shit's so cliché, boring and nonsensical it's incredibly fitting that the entire thing iPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yeah it's just shounen that appeals to all ages like a classic pixar movie.

This is one of the most fun things about Hunter X Hunter, you got a deconstruction of both the creepy eugenic power inheritance ( a la DBZ) and the creepy child soldier trope (a la naruto), which leads to the facist eugenics hellworld of hunter X hunter


The implication is BnHA is low IQ, correct?

Clothes bothers you and not the fact nen is treated as some tightly kept secret no one's allowed to talk openly about meanwhile fucks are running around using their superpowers in broad daylight with hardly anyone caring in a world where cameras, tv, and the internet is a thing?


I mean I was talking about purely visual design and its relation to the plot. Nen is a lot of plot BS too though.

So in terms of power scaling, would Saint Seiya be on DBZ levels of overpowered? I've heard they're really fucking powerful.


File: 1608529006877.png (248.42 KB, 288x512, Hyoga Seiya.png)

Some stuff I thought cool:
In Saint Seiya one of the main characters, Hyoga, is a russian from an unknown siberian village. His mentor Camus, the Gold Knight of Aquarius, is a russian too. This was one of the few cases in which we can see not only a russian as a main character but also pratically void of any negative stereotype. Instead, the russian characters in the series are portrayed as heroics and very powerful. Plus there is a lot of emphasis on the Orthodox Christian culture as Hyoga is a devoted Christian, like his mother, and that has helped him became a better man compared to the old pagan gods who are portrayed in the series as cruel and tyrannical (except Athena)


Pagan Russians FTW

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.

So, was this any good, and can it be understood without knowledge of the other original series?


I don't know how I'd judge the anime now but I'd say it's a good weeb gateway drug. When I watched it as a kid I appreciated the creepy atmosphere it had while not scaring me from actually watching it. Some of the anime opening and ending themes are super memorable.

Maybe worth a casual, noncommital watch at the very least


File: 1630430686339.jpg (118.78 KB, 1920x1078, flat artstyle Yashahime.jpg)

One of the main problems of Yashahime is that it kinda occurs in a vacuum. Inuyasha had villages with distinctly drawn people, wandering bandits, movements of armies and of course yokai living ordinary lives just as a passing background, not necessarily plot related. In the modern world there are people walking down the streets and living in home driving around etc.
Yashahime is sort of blank and lacking in background characters of any kind; no people, or settlements or nothing. It makes the world feel unlived in, like it was some pocket world created by [Innovate Clear] - utterly unlived in. You even see it with the poorly-shaded and untextured artstyle, pic related has such a featureless bald man in the mid-ground it's actually amazing this got through editing.


File: 1630440844859.png (582.65 KB, 768x504, ClipboardImage.png)

The series was fine but teenage girls and their hormones means that the romantic byplay was their main focus and the Japanese obsession with sexuality only accentuated this leading to shit like fujos and husbandoism (i.e. where the dog fucker meme on /a/ comes from).

No idea, it was very good despite being made on a shoestring budget.

thoughts on this manga? i watched the anime and am a fan of the artstyle.

i watched a video summary and spoilers the story is basically these magic users who live in a separate dimension abuse the human dimension and have contributed greatly to humanity living in poverty and suffering and regular genocide for "testing" of their scientific powers. from what i understand, the power relations are that the wizards are colonizers except they do it for fun and pleasure. basically the main character discovers his past and has multiple personalities and finds out that one of his personalities has materialized from the hatred of the humans towards the sorcerers from the past. the final battle ensues and the protagonist comes to the conclusion that the final enemy has turned into the exact same as their oppressors. For some reason, this ending, if it was described correctly as the video summary was rushed, really pisses me off. the wizards are the clear scumbags and abusers, and despite being walled off into a caste society, the entirety of the society is complicit and participates in abusing the human dimension. the final antagonist spoilers:which represents the rage of humanity wants to genocide the sorcerers but is stopped and the moral message seems to be that when you overthrow your oppressors you will probably turn into them and that your oppressors are humans too that you can get along with. of course, the protagonist was invested in defeating the final antagonist because their best friend, who was in the human dimension and helped him kill the genocidal sorcerers, would also be targeted indiscriminately, but the ending reeks of dont kill your rulers because there might be a chance you kill a good one, aka dont start a revolution.

idk, im just angry, but is the manga worth checking out and reading in its entirety? i only read some of the manga and watched the anime, and i would be disappointed if this is the logical conclusion of the manga. Is there more nuance and awareness of this? it seems in the ending, the power balance remains and nothing fundamentally changes. ill probably still read it because i like the artstyle, but I wish there was less of these apologia for "both sides" just because we got to know the characters of the oppressors.

> Kaiman is a cunt for murdering or attempting to murder random wizards just to found out about his real identify,
Given the context OP gave this seems based.


>Ebisu experimented on people like any other magician
To be honest, I don't recall the circumstances of her transforming Kaiman into a lizard, I only remember that she made money by selling her smoke at high prices. But then after she gets her face torn off by Kaiman she doesn't do anything evil.


Like that anon said it drags on a bit later on and the conclusion and final message are kinda mehhh but it's still really fucking fun, so I recommend reading it. The characters are the best part of this manga.


File: 1629689926368.jpg (496.79 KB, 1446x2048, EwCcJ3DUUAUlwAP.jpg)

I really liked the manga up until Kaiman becomes like 5 different people and as others have said it meanders a lot until that point and the conclusion leaves much to be desired. Regardless, I still think it's worth a read for all the fun and insane bits a plot summary leaves out.


Good going, now nobody is going to find it in catalog.

Really good video on Kiki that puts into words why it gives me such a blue mood, as do Ghibli films in general. It also succinctly encapsulates hat makes them so magical and good - they're high fantasy with mundane domestic elements. It feels like Miyazaki put in his own experiences directly onto the screen, as did the author of the original book, in some ways this reminds me of how Anno and his crew projected his own life, feelings and ideas onto Neon Genesis Evangelion - I feel that all the best animated works are like this.


Sherlock Hound is criminally underrated


Miyazaki was really harsh on his son, but it makes sense.

It’s ironically anti-communist but considering how fascist and retarded most weebs are they won’t even notice.


>The pedoshit is in the series, he's literally a slavering lolicon in the anime and manga. I know he wasn't actually a pedo.
what the fuck


There is only so much "ironic" you can make something before it becomes unironic. Tanya doesn't really suffer except some symbolic garbage that Being X does, Tanya is overpowered as fuck, has Mary-Sue plot armor and pulls off ridiculous "combat" that can be summarized as "aggressive suicide" that somehow works without any losses. It's a Wehraboo Weeb's wetdream Self-insert WW2 fanfic.

Yep, probably one of the most retardedly disturbing things of the movie.


I hate this anime because of that retarded Isekai Quartet moe-blob it had, which means that it's a pain in the ass to filter it out of search results when doing something like looking up crossover material between RE:Zero and Konosuba.

>Tanja blows up the palace of the soviets
<"Hurr they should'a built it better, durr"
I find it hilarious how they use Russian Federation and Soviet Union interchangeably. That's not even talking about the USSR being given the Dora mega-cannon.

Seriously, whoever made this was not just throwing together aesthetic, they paid close attention to what they were alluding to
>Tanya: Looks like their "People's Palace" was more fragile than it looked. Guess they shouldn't have rushed the construction so much.
>Viktoriya: Looks like they shouldn't have rationed the concrete so much.
This is contrasted with how the Kremlin equivalent is barely dented by the magical volleys. You know, pre-revolution stuff, implying that "muh Russian Empire good" shite, which is fucking ironic coming from the Japanese.

Honestly the entire film - from it having the USSR be the aggressor to the meme poor air defense - was a giant cope by wehraboos making a fake, fetishized alternate universe where the shining Germany beat le evul gommies, down to the scene where the German Iron cross flag and Eagle was held over a Soviet building, in parody of the iconic raising of the Soviet Flag on the Reichstag as a symbol of triumph over the Nazis, y'know pic related.

And out of everything this is exactly why this show is popular - because most weebs are also /pol/-faggots who rant about communism in the same dogmatic propaganda view Example: https://desuarchive.org/a/thread/207924515/

Also I hate Tanya's retarded face. It's the smug look of a 80 autism score faggot who thinks they're smarter than they are. The only reason it works out is plot contrivance and Mary Sue superpowers handed to her on a silver platter.
