What is the materialist explanation for yaoi fangirls/fujoshi? Why are there so many of them and why do they so spend so much money? Why are straight women obsessed with gay men?

You know, at first was going to say I disagree, but then I realized that you might be right.

In my experience most otome games used to be cutesy stuff on par with shojo manga (at most, dramatic, but not dark: https://vndb.org/g542?m=0&f=N18gwcomplete-&s=320).
In the last decade, "batshit insane" stuff (but not on the level of gore and degenerate sex acts so nothing grotesque) has become more common; I think it's a way to put "riskier" and therefore more interesting "adult" content in all-ages games.
Since otome games are a much smaller niche than galge*, it's easier to find the darker stuff, whereas if you look at galge, which has much more variety, unless you're specifically looking for the fucked up and obscure shit you'll rarely come across it; cutesy but sexually suggestive content is more mainstream when it comes to galge or harem anime. There are often darker story elements in all-ages otomege, but in a romanticized or melodramatic way and not intentionally edgy and disturbing, so in that sense I definitely agree, because when you analyze those elements more critically you realize how insane they actually are even though they're not presented as anything special. But Diabolik Lovers, which is relatively super-popular, is an exception, perhaps due to its production value, "stylish" edginess, being an Otomate/Rejet game, its merchandise and marketing (paradoxically, its dumb protagonist is universally hated for being a total doormat).
However, "batshit insane" elements can also be found in many of the most popular galge (https://vndb.org/v?q=&ch=&f=020781Ol81Qr81Xkx81Xn081Xn_81XB881XBrN19a0i&s=33w)

Speaking of which, I've recently read a yandere TL manga (teen's love, a genre for adult women). I usually avoid yandere because I think it's boring and cliche, but this one initially caught my attention, because it was silly, cute and hot. Then, after I got attached to the characters and fully invested in the story, it got to the really fucked up part, anPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I watched a friend of mine stream Taisho X Alice. At first it was just a normal romance, nothing particular. Then one of the guys is a yandere that feeds you drugs and keeps you in a a cage, later you discover that in every bad ending you get chocked to death so that you can start again and in last game the player founds out that all the romanceable guys are the split personalities of the schizo BF of the protagonist. It was pretty fucked up, interesting but fucked up.

Thanks for the massive spoilers anon
What happens at the end though?

Also it's quite concerning how a considerable amount of popular otome games have abusive or otherwise fucked up relationships. Even if it's for the sake of bad endings and not presented as a good thing. Girls love bad endings.

I don't know if it has anything to do with the same phenomenon, but it looks like "women's media" has a lot of abusive behavior in it but in a romanticized way. For example, in Asian dramas.
I found this video about K-dramas in the yume porn thread on /h/ (ignore the liberal shit in it though). I had no idea these dramas were this bad (the most surprising thing about it is that apparently Chinese dramas are like this too, according the poster that shared the video). And, to be honest, I didn't know otome games were that bad either, because I usually stick to the cute high school romance stuff, but now that I think about it, fantasy settings allow for darker content and a lot of otoge have a fantasy setting.

Stay in Leftypol and pretend that the recent drama didn't happen.
Bunkerchan is mostly up for shits and giggles, so I don't really consider it to be on the table.

The petty drama which caused the "junta" roleplayers to fuck off and cause a split again has absolutely nothing to do with /anime/ (it was a /b/ thing concerning avatarfags, soyfags and reactionaries), so I see no reason for the /anime/ users to leave leftypol. However, some of us probably side with the coupers/splitters, so they're probably going to make posts over at leftychan, and if that site ever goes down they will complain about it here.
Also I don't think the "mod" (who is actually just a janny I think) who's been removing spam at what remains of Bunkerchan is part of this site's staff, but maybe I misunderstood.

So since I wasn't aware of the split until I came back a few days ago, and posted on leftychan, (because redirect) I'm going to do myself a favor and repost some content from leftychan /anime/ on the corresponding threads of this site.

But yeah fuck /b/-fags and fuck the mods for their stupid fbi.gov drama, this is why dictatorship of Old BO was at least stable and predictable and only had 1 split that was still on the same site.

So to speak. More like, how much of Miura's death is due to the consequences of his position in the anime industry?

It's well known that the pace of Berserk releases dropped off as the series went on. How much was the commercial success of Berserk a factor? Early on he was only a mangaka, but by 2021 Berserk isn't just a manga series but a commercial institution. On top of drawing the manga, he has assistants to oversee, toy designs to approve, deals to authorize, etc. All the while his health is deteriorating, working himself to death in order to compete with the insane labor demands of the manga industry, not unlike Osamu Tezuka.

Is Miura being lazy and getting addicted to [email protected] just a useful fiction to cover for the insane level of exploitation, the inhuman workload it takes to try and compete in the anime/manga industry?

Is there an explanation as to why so many 3d animes or animes with CGI look noticeably fucking awful? I cant possibly fathom as to how any individual can fuck up so badly on aesthetics when it comes to anime as westerners already can make plenty of 3d cartoons that look just fine with good art styles, hell even for individual artists making good looking CGI isnt hard as your essentially getting 3d squares and triangles with images stretched on them to move around a screen for several minutes and artists like Ian Hubert have proven that large budgets for good looking graphics is far from difficult or expensive, so what gives?

They are slow, just at different times, due to time zones and other shit we have periods of no traffic and periods of high traffic.
>WHY ARE YOU LIKE THIS
ARE YOU SOME KIND OF AESEXUAL!?
No, I like ecchi shows like DxD, but there the fan service is actually amusing and has hilarious plot relevance rather than just "ooh boobies"
>what is the humor like
I think I'm just oversaturated from all the typical Japanese jokes of this medium, to the point where I can tell where a joke is going ahead of time, when it's predictable it stops being interesting.

What is it about weebshit that attracts them? Or is it weebshit that turns them into rightoids?

It's a common saying with multiple contexts:
- Mothers tell their children this to encourage them to understand that things do not come for free and require labour in a short and sweet phrase.
- >>9161 summarizes the Capitalist view
- a Communist (and Christian) phrase that essentially promotes good work ethic (keep in mind that work does not necessarily equal wage labour.
