Judge me all you like, but I love a good power/skill progression. What are some anime or manga that have a really nice progression? I've always been fond of Berserk's build up of Guts as the ultimate warrior, to the point where you really believe a human can defeat a demon.

Kuwabara from Yu Yu Hakusho and Yokoshima from Ghost Sweeper Mikami (who even surpasses the main character in popularity polls).
Both anime ended before that happened, by the way.

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. Anyways, you can download the first two chapters here: https://berndscans.blogspot.com/

I don't care about sticking to canon unless its really important to the characterization of a story. Netflix Bebop is just poorly done as a stand-alone, it being an adaptation only makes it worse. The Resident Evil movies aren't great and are very divorced in areas from the game, but as standalone films still have decent story-telling and plot and the 'bad' parts are part of the cheesy charm, this is just boring.

I wound up watching it from all the seething over it and it actually was really cute. Nagatoro was terrible horrible in the first episode how she acted and I really wish they would better explain why she went so far at first. But later just got into sexual teasing and her being protective and considerate and the dork actually has character development which is more than what you usually see in these type of shows.

Any petite girl can pull a cuter voice. They don't necessarily have to be Japanese. For example I've heard Russians that can do voices pretty similar to how Japanese VAs sound.

You're both taking extreme points of view. Dubs are generally considered worse because of the legacy of old dubbing being lack-luster narration type shit or inanely lazy mouth-voice sync. Today Dubs are usually much higher quality than they used to be, even for mediocre, single-season isekai-of-the-month shit. Japanese VAs are good, but ironically the quality control has dropped, leading to really poor and annoying performances.

Anime filler, unironically, because the original manga and especially the Web Novel are outright toxic in many areas.

>My philosophical ramblings on (disjointed parts of) Lain / SEL.


>The philosophical point of the wired.

The wired is basically the cultural / superstructure sphere given a type of Pseudo-'Form' in the context of the internet.
Lain's dad points out to her at the very start of the anime in very blunt terms [paraphrasing haven't watched it in a while]
<"The wired is just a medium of transferring information and communicating with other people - dont confuse it for reality"
But very tellingly. The entire rest of the anime STOMPS all over this idea.
Throughout the series we see hints and have it eventually confirmed to us that the wired IS capable of having a effect on material reality. And even in the way the show is fleshed out, the audience is left constantly confused half the time whether something is really happening or is just happening in the 'wired'.

It plays out in effectively a similar paradigm as the Marxist 'Base and Superstructure' except instead of a strictly economic base effecting culture which can then in turn lead to changes in the base in a closed loop, this is applicable to 'reality in general' instead of a pure economics talking point

From the first time Lain goes onto the wired we see the same pattern unfold either at her hands or as the story develops the alter/copycat/deformed Lains. This pattern emerges…

<A. Lain goes onto and performs some sort of task or interaction on the wired.

2/2

>Masami's plan / Dimensional merge / The V.R goggles guy.

Masami who is basically the main antagonist of the series, entire plan revolves around him first 'dying' in the real world which is revealed to actually have been him digitizing and uploading his consciousness into the wired using Sci-Fi I FUCKING LOVE SCIENCE level bullshittery.
From this point he intends to 'bring the wired and the real world together'
<What does that mean?
The world becomes a deleuzians paradise.
A completely imminent world with no observable or real separation between the perceived base and its culture/superstructure or in this scenario the 'real world' and the 'virtual world'. Obviously we dont get a chance to see what this would have functionally looked like. but from some of the events we see in the later episodes, I doubt it would have ended well for most people.

The V.R goggles sex pest guy we see about halfway through the series is actually one of the most similar to Masami in terms of their goals, Both of them initially want some sort of Liberation from the 'real world' and existence inside the wired. Though Masami succeeds (And to put it once more in Deleuzean terms - by literally abandoning or destroying his physical body so that his consciousness could continue to exist infinitely and unfettered by biological needs inside the wired) while the V.R goggles guy clearly fails. simply living a NEET lifestyle with a Meta.TM headset glued to his face all day. While still ultimately having to deal with the automatic reactions and requirements of his body in the real world.

Despite Masami's plans failure being the climax of series and us obviously never getting to see it's consequences, One character obviously does 'transcend' their physical limitations in an obvious way.
Lain herself seemingly becomes capable of 'living' inside the wired much the same way that Masami did. But is also able to quite clearly 'make themselves' physical in the real world whenever and wherever they want. Effectively becoming Omnipresent at every discernible individual point of time and space both within the virtual and real worlds

So basically Lain succeds where both Masami and V.R failed and ends up somewhat achieving the 'merge' that Masami desired. at least on a personal level.

From left to right. The main Lain is her ego, the Lain of the Wired who is often seen as Cyberia is her superego, and the devious Lain is her id. This is why there is multiple Lains because they represent different aspects of herself. Except for the people on the wired who took on a distorted form of Lain they probably represented something else.

Think of spiders. All their eyes do different things. Logically a kemonomimi has different ears that do different things like they are for different frequencies or to better differentiate the direction of a sound source. With our two ears we can't easily differenciate front versus back easily without visual cues. Though yeah a bit goofy like result of a random character generator.

So many authors that get cancelled and then their next story is something aimless like a slice-of-life manga, assuming they even get a chance to make something new. I don't even care if they "deserved" to get axed, it still sucks that trying to do something even slightly different is met with cancellation so they inevitably go for a safe route next time.
