Thank you youtubers for giving birth to thousands of pseuds like this that MUST apply their surface-level knowledge of political theory to all media they consoom.


Political analysis of media is something everyone does, whether it is correct is another matter, but that's why this is a thread and not a thesis paper; people write out what they think and discuss. If you're not interested, DON'T READ IT. It's not that hard to hide a post and ignore it.
&ltMuh youtubers
People have and did do this on /a/ long before weeb youtubers were even a thing.

Pic is me TBH, It's also basically the theme of Shield Hero's beginning (internalized).


Way too edgy in some ways, not edgy enough in others


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.

>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.

>isekai is the only form of escapism that exists


>wagie bootlicker
<buzzwords are so cool, let me spam them incoherently!
1) There is more than Isekai as a fantasy you dullard
2) a little fantasy and escapism is fine, being a weeb obsessed with this shit because your life is shit instead of trying to improve your life or at least find enjoyment IRL is being sick in the head and requires help, of which suicide is not a good option
So yeah, imagine being so ass mad because "muh animu"


ban all anime becuase its all mierda


I'm glad you agree with the capitalist psychiatrist hegemony. Now back to work, wagie!


>capitalist psychiatrist hegemony
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.

Oh boy…



but really it's actully pretty good anime OVA. pretty sad


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.

Anybody know any good cutesy Yaoi manga/anime?
I've watched the stock standard Doukyuusei and Yuri on Ice, but apart from that, I don't know of anything good.

Also, general SFW Yaoi thread.

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.


>A recent thread
Thread in question. Mods essentially are continuing to keep it up to "spite" haters, even though frankly I side with people who don't like this corporate pandering. Mods locked the thread.


>The fact that Yaoi stuff doesn't promote this
But it does a lot of the time, just in a different way, like "we're both boys and love/fuck each other but according to our homophobic society we shouldn't be together :("
Of course this isn't nearly as bad as it is in the West but still


I'll take that over spammed "It's ok to be gay GAY GAY GAY GAY AND IF YOU"RE NOT YOU"RE A NAZIIIII!"
type shit you see in Western Comics.


> Gay relationships = a personality

I heard Nagatoro was adapted recently is it worth watching?

This is exactly the problem with these things because the more you build shit up the higher the expectation and anticipation, eventually being so higher that the pay off could be nothing but a disappointment where you just go: “meh, it was okay”.


I finally caught up with the whole manga since I don’t really watch anime. Anyways I liked it more than I thought I would, and it more charming than I thought it was going to be. It’s playful and the dude character isn’t as insufferable as I thought he would be, what’s weird though is that the main character only began to be a bit insufferable in the later and more recent chapters. But usually it gets offset by him doing something cute with Nagatoro. What I like about it is that it’s so clear that he likes her and he knows he likes her but is too afraid to admit it to himself or her. She 100 percent likes him, no 110 percent likes him, from the beginning in fact. Her teasing is so obvious and it was so obvious she was not much different from “Senpai” except more extroverted so they’re both “virgins” except it’s the girl who’s overcompensating here. I really liked the chapter when Senpai actually challenged her by asking what she meant by lewd stuff since that’s the kind of return teasing I wanted to see senpai give her cuz it’s so obvious.

Another thing I like is that as we see friends faces in the later chapters it essentially is a development alongside the main characters. As we see more faces the relationship between nagatoro and Senpai is only more obvious but that obviousness becomes only that much more painful because it’s colored by the awareness of Nagatoros friends especially. They know she really likes Senpai and they edge them closer but not outright force it so as an outside observer you’re with the friends and become annoyed whenever it’s clear they want each other but just won’t do it. I mean they’ve been on like 4 or 5 dates by now I think, and maybe 1 “official” date.

Anyways, I like it, has gotten a bit tedious lately but I hope their relationship takes off sooner rather than later. I’m actually more interested in what they are like as an official couple acknowledging they’re a couple.

She starts off as a hikki, they don't literally never come out, but essentially spend most of their time like that. She goes to school because she has to, dropping out isn't a real option. She did change but by then I'd gotten bored.


Only good for 50 chapters, goes into absolute moeshit garbage after that, and I read way to much of it.


I guess I was Hiki my entire childhood acording to your logic.


If you were a home-dwelling recluse with no friends ever, then yes.

speaking of weird and interesting mecha/kaiju stuff, the new Godzilla show was so hyped and then no-one talks about it for some reason.


So what's your guys favourite Ultraman show?
I don't remember which one they aired as a kid but I've started from Ultraman Qanon

And the theme kicks ass. It shows off dope kaijus

If Lost Media ever gets into anime, maybe.


There's no way it can be found because it was made up in a 4chan shitpost (that's most likely the case anyway).
Also the name "Saki Sanobashi" doesn't make sense at all.


> the name "Saki Sanobashi" doesn't make sense
Neither do many names, and?
>probably a shitpost


Probably doesnt exist but something like it probably does exist.

Yeah, for example Shōjo Tsubaki from the 90s. I haven't watched it, but it's said to be one of the most disturbing anime of all time.

If you absolutely have to watch it, then I suggest you drink while doing so. After 2.0 I couldn't get through the last 2 films sober, because every moment of stupidity and drama made me want to shake Anno by his lapels and ask him to stop.


>because every moment of stupidity and drama made me want to shake Anno by his lapels and ask him to stop.
I know absolutely nothing about the films except for a couple of details and the existence of Mari. What's so stupid about them? Please give me a quick rundown.


Ok first two films were not as good as the original, but moslty followed the original series up until Zeruelstill tried to remain consistent with the themes, and did have their own good ideas, however now Angels are much easier to beat for no reason. There is also some hints about it being a continuation from EoE where everything starts over anew but with traces of the previous series (the Ocean is LCL for example). On top of that when facing Zeruel, Shinji is conscious and he causes 3rd impact by trying to pull Rei out, only to be stopped by Kaworu with yet another Spear and another Evangelion from the moon.
The scene where Shinji fights Zeruel for Rei is pretty good, btw.
However now we get to the real shit show of 3.0 and frankly I'd have an easier time listing what is not wrong with it, among which is the Kaworu and Shinji playing on the piano scene.
I suggest enjoying these video reviews, as they put things into words better than I can manage at 4AM.

As for 3.0+1.0, …I don't even know where to begin to describe the awfulness except to say that it's not even Evangelion at this point anymore. Oh I guess Mari - she's a time traveling 'friend' or sister of Yui Ikari and she basically becomes Shinji's girl at the end, because it was in fact her grand plan all along to bring Shinji happiness - yes the entire mess where she barely interacted with anyone and barely did anything outside of jobbing in her Eva, was part of a grand attempt to fix everything in some strange timeloop thing. It was essentially nonsense, and Anno tried to pretend that "The Curse of Evangelion" was an analogy for Evangelion plaguing everything he did or was, forcing him to repeatedly work on it to appease fans… and that 4.0 was him breaking Post too long.

They were indeed in a .rar file in this computer.
They belong to the same publication which I'll also be including in this post.

I've heard some criticism of this book though
