Man this feels like a 2000s anime in a good way.
I also checked the manga to get some more and the author is a god of pacing. Lots of development for a huge cast without feeling dragged out. Good shit.

Boy gets sold to a Devil Lord by his parents to be adopted as the devils grandson. Gets taken to hell and goes to Devil School and has to hide the fact that he's human and ends up proving himself to everyone. It's a lot of fun and is pretty easy to watch.

Whenever I see someone write this shit and then proceed to list every famous shonen anime, (ironically here forgetting DBZ which is the only one this truly fully applies to) I know you haven't watched ANY of these shows.

>No character development/Bland

<Naruto
I'm sorry what? The only characters who didn't get good development was Hinata and other background characters (which is why NaruHina is still controversial). Even Sakura had character development. She wasn't necessarily a great character but she still developed. Naruto develops over the series as well, and the multifaceted themes and ideas formed a good
>Random power ups
<Naruto
Naruto's fox power is well established and he has to train and train and train more to improve himself and even somewhat use any powerups. Sasuke literally has hax eyes and it's not exactly common, everyone else takes a lot of effort to not be bush-league. The only time we depart from this is with the 4th war arc, primarily in regards to Madara, who was walking bullshit, but that made him memeworthy and it was a tiny portion of the overall story. The only other asspulled power was the Asura/Indra reincarnation power shit, but that again is a tiny portion of the story.
>Boring Story
<Naruto
Besides this being subjective, Naruto is not a single story but a multifaceted one - a story of a boy trying to gain acknowledgement and over his struggles gaining it. It is a story of two friends, one trying to save the other from the darkness, etc. It's very interesting because between the goal of the main character and the beginning is a long road full of adventure, drama, strife and struggle.
>Bad Plot development
<Naruto
Again, excluding some of the dumb MOMENTS, overall Naruto's plot is fairly solid and makes sense, Part I especially had a very dynamic plot that had arcs roll into each other fairly smoothly but not rushed. Part II also was pretty well balanced, hampered only in some parts because as stories grow longer they hyperextend, but even then I struggle to find canon parts that are blatantly awful, unlike DBZ orPost too long.

How a basic bitch superhero highschool shonen (a la Sky High) with such a shitty premise and ultra stereotyped characters got popular is kinda beyond me. Its like OPM without the sarcastic distance, with design almost as ridiculous but taking itself way too seriously. And the main character is exactly the kind of annoying OP crybaby beating everything through the power of love that I hate. It's about a society where the spectacle has even absorbed the police/army (ie. superheroes/superhero associations) and this is treated like the best thing ever. Also success is mainly determined at birth. Hey prole, do you have trouble with making ends meet? Well, try having better genes next time. And of course, we are talking about cool flashy powers here so it's not like this anything to do with Social Darwinism and eugenics.

The only thing it was good for is 1-2 seasons of superhero stuff and memes. Seriously this got popular while Tiger x Bunny is forgotten

Having had a year or so to ruminate over thsis show and read some fanfics as alternate takes I have to say that Shield hero is an interesting show but like Arifureta undermines its dark, gritty premise with cutesy shit and stalled character development after the initial character arcs.

https://news.knowyourmeme.com/news/russian-court-bans-isekai-anime-for-promoting-reincarnation-beliefs

>Popular isekai anime KonoSuba and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, as well as several others, have been banned on certain sites in Russia recently. The Russian court decided that the isekai (meaning "otherworld") titles "promote reincarnation beliefs" and show that "after death, there can be a more full and interesting life, free from control of one's parents."


>On Monday, the Russian district court in Saint Petersburg banned a total of five anime titles, citing the federal Russian law for the protection of children from harmful information. The list of banned series includes isekai anime KonoSuba and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, comedy horror anime Zombie Land Saga, comedy romance Nekopara and harem anime Princess Lover!.


>"The court has ruled that, for example, KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! promotes reincarnation beliefs by showing that after death there can be a more full and interesting life, free from control of one's parents. The world after death is shown to be colorful, full of adventures and offering an opportunity to lead an indulgent life full of drinking, sexual relations and unlawful activities, while the real life is shown as joyless and filled with loneliness."


Hopefully a wakeup call for leftist weebs who advocate for censorship to protect the children unironically. Has it ever occurred to you that isekai is dangerous because a child watching isekai MIGHT commit suicide to be reincarnated? No? And why is that? Maybe just maybe there is a difference between fiction that is blatant wish-fullfilment disconnected from reality and suicide cult propaganda?

This is where "all fiction is political" analysis got us. Fucking retards.

Capitalism literally shills the opposite, and normalizes the most shitty Hikki-NEET lifestyle, and drives people to suicide and drug use to escape. Watching escapist fantasy is, guess what, another way to escape, but when you run out of Isekai worth watching and have to face reality… the idea of dying and going to another world sounds very tantalizing to people. So fuck you, ya word spamming fuck.

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.

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.

While I personally dislike yaoi content as it's not to my taste (and attracts fujoshits), the concept itself is not that big a deal because in the end it's never used to push ideology or some other garbage, unlike Western comics and media which exploit such stuff. It's just aoftcore (or hardcore) erotica with a simple romance plot between 2 men, not some sort of virtue-signal.

Western comics can't seem to shut up about gays and society, even though literally nobody but a small, always existing minority of people are openly attacking them. The constant pride flags all over the place and corporate shilling and stuff like changing a banner on a subreddit is all so fake and literally gay, as is the entire concept of a "pride month". Note that this is only for Capitalist Western countries, and this started in the USA, The place this whole hullabaloo started. This gay pride, is inane idpol, because it's the same as being proud you're white or of a certain nationality - if your identity is built on superficial things like who you fuck and what skin color you are, you're essentially a shallow NPC because this whole pride thing is just a mess of ideology. It's intentionally dehumanizing because it encourages people to have samefaced personalities and not disrupt the porky status quo. Anyone who speaks out against this is immediately a homophobe, even other gay people who 'dare' to point this out.

So what does this have to do with Yaoi? The fact that Yaoi stuff doesn't promote this, the content does not define the characters involved nor is it some shallow, misplaced source of pride or ideological basis.

A good example of stuff that inspires Yaoi is the Western interpretation of Sasuke and Naruto - the two are often paired in stories due to the latter's obsessive behavior, even though that was a hyperbole of the author to emphasize how much Naruto values his bonds and friendships, which is the Japanese POV, but I digress - this fact of course encourages yaoi pairings of the characters, however while doujins and memes tend to make it short and sweet (or humorous) and not exploitative, Western authors, (like in fanfiction) tend to dramatize it into a mix between a disturbing cocklust and a bad Indian Soap Opera. But because people fear being called out as "homophobes" for pointing out how blatantly idpoled the content may be, they stay silent.

An example would be the rainbow flare on the r/NarutoFanfiction subreddit. A recent thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
