Fujimoto has seriously elevated manga - nay, literature - to another level with his manga Fire Punch. One chapter that encapsulates this masterpiece of modernist art is chapter 53. In the previous chapter of Fire Punch, the main character, Agni, finds out he has lost the fire that has been burning him since the first chapter of the manga. It also seems he has lost his regenetative ability after the Ice Queen defeated him in order to recreate the world so she could watch Star Wars. After waking up naked next to his enemy (who looks exactly like his deceased sister) during a blizzard, he realises she has forgotten her name and now thinks she is Agni's sister, Luna (who had an incestous love for Agni and wanted to have children with him). Agni directs the couple towards a nearby building in search of warmth. Once they enter, Agni wants to kill her as she is his enemy. Earlier he tried to punch her with his remaining arm but she hugged him before he could. Now, however, he regains these thoughts, with the words "kill her" repeating in his mind. This shows how he is still thinking of the fight that recently happened. Despite being hugged by Luna, he is feeling insecure as he has not had good personal relationships with anyone other than another regenerator called Togata, who died to save Agni from drowning. His last words were, "Live" (a repeating phrase throughout the manga which illustrates its key themes). These thoughts repeat as they both start putting clothes on from a wardrobe in a dormitory room. Agni is picking clothes out whilst repeating "kill her" in his mind, when he suddenly turns around and sees Luna happily dancing around in clothes whilst exclaiming, "clothes!" (she seems to have reverted to a child-like mentality). Seeing this, Agni falls over and clasps a hand over his mouth, uttering the words, "So cute.." as the bloody thoughts leave his mind and tears fall from his eyes. Luna, seeing him cry, crouches down and asks him why he is crying. In response, Agni replies, "It's like I'm dreaming" (this may be a mistranslation). He explains that he has no idea what is happening anymore. This is truly a great show of pathos as we, the reader, have been confused for some time now. We utterly feel for his character at this very moment as we also felt sad when his sister died and are happy he didn't give into his murderous thoughts. However, now Agni sees hPost too long.

What the fuck even is the point of harem series? Aren't most of them just romance but with an even greater chance of blueballing you?
Yeah, it SEEMS like pure wish fulfillment, but it isn't even good at that because in most shows there's only relentless teasing instead of any actual romance and the MC only ends up with one of the candidates anyway.
The only explanation I can come up with is that it's just a way to increase the appeal (and thus commercial potential) of a standard romance series by cramming it with different archetypes. Either that or anime fans just love getting teased with no real guarantee of a reward, which would explain a lot, actually.

>it's also become a trash show
it was always trash


IMO it had a mediocre to decent start and just dropped through the bottom.


From what I remember, it went to shit after the second episode.

Stop being in denial.

I get when non-binaries or whatever pull this argument but it's the funniest/saddest shit when reactionaries in the closet do it.

I'm a way too old otaku who's always been into a lot of underground Japanese subculture shit thanks to learning the language but even I have to be amazed at the sort of shallow orientalism that's going on on imageboards, like cumming at sakura trees, larping as an imperialist or making Japan seem as the last trad ethnostate (it really isn't), or more recently and what prompted me to make this thread, someone posting a picture of their room with a huge ass poster of Tokyo's subway map. Like really? What's the appeal of that? Sure, he might have been a train otaku, but nothing else in the picture indicated that.

To sum it up, fuck orientalism.

Still better than Eurocentrism tbh.


This. Eurocentrism is just white supremacy honestly. Redditoids are completely guilty of it


>>11454 I agreed, i won't explain myself further than this comment (because i'm doing algebra homework), but my opinion of this thread is that much of the perspectives people have regarding japan are rooted in hate, ignorance or out of context info (also propaganda), or directly treating the country as a cartoonish stereotype (which is in part, pretty discriminatory), like for example, japanese people hating everyone who is not japanese, as such they don't hate the concept of a foreign people, they in fact appreciate anyone who love japan enough to go to the country, what they don't like, is mostly the attiudes of western people (becaus such attitudes tend to be kinda rude or disgusting from their cultural point of view) and yeah, japan has a lot of social issues, is a flawed nation as any other, but also, it's a nation with positive things, much that most of us doesn't comprehend completely, it's like sinophobia, or ignorance regarding latin americans (i'm a guatemalan indigenous, so i can talk from experience), it is harder when even the media you consume tends to have an incorrect idea of the situation of many nations, because they tend to be really "superficial" and much of the context is just ignored for the sake of keep it simple to the common spectator.

Also, there is a real problem with the west and their weird ideas of eastern nation, europeans and americans want to impose a supremacy over the rest of the world, even the so called "leftist movements" have a biased pro western agenda, in which they want to impose a cultural imperialism "you are not like us, then you are bad", for me, the best way to have an idea of how society works is going to say country and learn more about it, even if it is just for vacations, ask locals, interact with people, read more about different perspectives from people, and if you can't afford it, you should check and do an analysis to the country social medias and see what the locals have to say, don't stick with experience or what others tell you, create your own criteria, because imperialism and white supremacism can also disguise as "socialism" (From my personal experience, I know some Korean, and i'm thinkin about taking japanese classes just to have a full perspective, and who knows, move out to one of those nations)

>>11456 Ps2: Regarding right wing fetishist weebs, those losers can't figure it out the whole picture, ignore them and let them live in their inmature escapism, they are too lazy to do something in life, so they can only dream, from my perspective, that's enough suffering to even bother discussing with those people.


Hollerin' when people pull this kinda shit about respecting traditions and customs that would be no different from shit you'd read from a right-winger.

>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.

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.

Literally this.


Are you going to post anything more than necrobump Yes-man posts? This is the only thread you've bumped that has any reason to be bumped and you didn't even add anything of substance.


I'm not gonna suggest you to read Kant's Critique of Pure Reason or Marx's Capital: Critique of Political Economy, nor will I tell you to go into that incomprehensible mess titled Capitalism and Schizophrenia by Deleuze and Guattari. What I will suggest you to do is to watch a 22-episode anime TV series titled Texhnolyze. Texhnolyze has many of the same themes that appear in Fanged Noumena, and, in my opinion, handles them much better than Land does.
Land isn't exactly embraced for his strong logic or convincing arguments. He's mostly style, something that would appeal to reclusive teenagers and young adults who've always to feel edgy, but could never be motivated enough to do anything trully different from anybody else, other than by taking up some kind of radical-sounding ideology that doesn't require for any active social participation.


This is the only low effort post I have made recently and it was to bump a thread that deserved it. Whoever you think I am they are living rent free in your head.


In the past 24 hours 6 threads located at the bottom of catalog got bumped, using mostly single sentence (or less) posts. Most of these threads are dead for a reason; being a duplicate to an existing thread or a shitposting thread. Ergo, it is a logical assumption that your post got made by the same no-effort spammer. If you are not said spammer, then I apologize.

happy 9/11 everybody


Never forget that anime corrupts otaku into homosexuality.


They stopped making a dozen SoL a season to do isekai instead a while back.


wrong thread


Bros I wish we could have another 9/11. Destroy another souless corporation tower filled with evil bourgeois. But it would have to be done by the people rather than the government this time.


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?

Speaking of 3D
Land of the Lustrous:
A somewhat unreal land inhabited by girl-coded humanoid crystals. We follow the misfortunes of the youngest and weakest of the bunch as she goes through a year of personal growth and transformation through interaction with her fellows and various invaders.

There's enough personality in the myriad crystal themed characters to keep you empathizing, and enough weirdness to the world to keep you trying to figure it all out. Comes together for a tight mix of high-concept far-out setting with low-concept focus on character development and interaction. It's 3D animation, but here it rather helps to give everything a more alien tinge.


>Among the accusations is that the company owns 4chan
LMAO, that place really has gone from "anonymous hacker 4chan" to a mainstream part of capitalist social spheres.

On the topic of Crunchy Roll and exploitation of animators. It's a fairly uncontroversial opinion that High Guardian Spice is unoriginal trash >>11233
But more importantly it's a demonstration of Crunchy Roll clearly not using the money donated or paid by subscribers for their claimed purpose of giving animators direct sources of cash. As a reminder CR was a pirate anime site, that somehow managed to secure legal rights to stream anime officially. To do this they sold themselves as the site people could pay to support the actual producers of Anime. This resonated with the people and the new found customers gladly paid for the chance to support the producers of anime. CR straight up sucks as a streaming service. The flash player sucks, licensing issues if you're not in the US, and suberrors. Moreover people (normies mostly) subscribe to Crunchyroll to stream anime, so they have every right to complain if it diverts money that could be used for that goal in order to make a non-anime show that isn't even creative or properly made.

Shills for CR try to point at Netflix and fail: The reason people don't get too mad at Netflix is because at least at its core, Netflix is a good streaming service that offers and even FUNDS a lot of anime (LWA, Devilman Crybaby, etc). They use their subscription funds to make new series (not just anime) that can be hit or miss, but at least they're trying. Netflix isn't a niche stream service like Crunchyroll, it can make anything it wants because it streams anything it wants. Heck I don't even mind flash player but it's outdated and not supported by most browsers anymore. If you have to download a video to see it, might just torrent instead.

Hell it's not even an issue if they make a cartoon… as long as it's actually GOOD or creative like their first animated product Onyx Equinox. But when you market it in any way that isn't highlighting what you created and just congratulates it for having an all-female staff, it's just pandering and since the actual product sucks, it's exploitative virtue-signaling. It's elephants painting on a canvas. you market the elephant but the art is still crap, the elephant isn't to blame, it'sPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>High Guardian Spice is unoriginal trash
I disagree


>Why don't they try forming unions?
Animators are forming unions. Specifically Toei animators are unionized and so the company outsources lots of animation to the Philipines. Recently there was a debacle between Toei and its unionized workers to do with LGBT issues where the company was discriminating. In this instance it was a director but I think but animators have a union.

>super dated animation
Cel animation Gundam original movies and OVAs are not dated at all.


Not them but I'm trying to watch the first series and it does look pretty dated, if you're not used to 70s anime. Perhaps I should watch the movies after all.



Tomino Gundam is Gundam. Why even pretend you like Gundam if you think the AUs are the best.

Tomino doesn't have great opninions on women but he is one of the best character writers in anime. Just because the writing is autistic and the characters unlikable doesn't mean they aren't more conflicted and complicated in a realistic way than most TV shows or movies.
