Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/

Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three:
1) Bart gets an F
2) Homers Enemy
3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)

It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why.

Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society.

Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships.

This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does.

>implying D-Fens was wrong
>implying America doesn't promote exploitation over earning things


There's no good vtub-


barely remember any episodes (I watched it when I was a kid), but the poochie episode has one of the most inspired punchlines to any episode of any show I've seen, it's so good


Yes, there are no good vtubers.

Which episode was that?


This belongs more in >>>/hobby/ to be honest, being Western animation and all that.

Top or Bottom?


>never seen one where Orcs are not treated like always bad tho.
Plenty actually, for example this one https://chapmanganato.com/manga-rh953142

The world goddess is a self absorbed cunt who likes pretty stuff. She basically enforced selection among humans ot be pretty and treats non-humans like trash. Orcs (well, they are more like japanese orcs, being pig-like) are among those races that are forced to inhospitable regions and barely survive, they are presented as pretty chill and hospitable people.

For an isekai this one has a pretty interesting setting surprisingly.


Ends on the most interesting part, goddammit


They're in discussions to make a live action Berserk and people are hoping Henry Cavill plays him.


>henry cavill as guts
same energy as One Piece fans wanting Jim Carrey to play Franky

I love death note. And I love light yagami as a character.

However it was very obvious that his entire worldview is extremely… reactionary I guess? Or like darwinist? Killing criminals and not trying to fix underlying problems is obvioiusly retarded. I wonder if any normalfags were able to make this obsevation

i'm not disagreeing with you but can you tell me what you think lelouch is? sympathetic villain protagonist? what role in the story does he have? because in my view he's an anti hero because he's going against a social darwinist empire that's racist, so it's more like dark gray morality vs black morality. On the tvtropes page its conflicted as well if he is anti hero or villain protagonist, and his character page has both tropes listed at once. So I don't think the character lelouch is as evil as light yagami. I think at worst he is a much more sympathetic villain than him even if he is still evil


I don't think Lelouch is a villain at all. Everything he does is to destroy the fascist empire and save his sister. Doing bad stuff doesn't make him a villain, it makes him a flawed person trying to overthrow an evil government.


It sucks that Light didn't use the Death Note to go after the actual bad people in the world, he could have obliterated global capitalism


I honestly can't believe it's been 17 years since the Death Note anime came out… holy shit I feel old.


Who are you replying to?

I mean in some ways he starts off as an anti-hero, taking action against the vile elements that societies mechanisms fail to stop, but it just derails into a serial killers murder spree.


>he hasn't seen this japo-american masterpiece

<The Hobbit is a 1977 American animated musical television special created by Rankin/Bass, a studio known for their holiday specials, and animated by Topcraft, a precursor to Studio Ghibli.

Just watched this the other night.

lol, that climax


Something that has similar asthetic to the stuff mentioned here is The BFG from 1989


Another classic


Funny thing is that there's the hobbit and the Lord of the Rings animations that are entirely separate productions but are so similar in style that people conflate the two as being from the same source.

>TFW nobody mentions Flight of Dragons
Absolutely wonderful film. It's too bad the animated remake that the original creators were planning never got off the ground. I actually spoke to one of them and he was telling me about how they had basically written and story-boarded it all out, but it got the plug pulled on it because of funding and lack of popular interest.

How much of this actually exists? Annie-may that's so embarrassingly incompetent that you can actually sit through and laugh at ironically, like a hilariously bad movie? It's normally a lot harder to do because every bit of animation has thought and effort put into it, so it just comes off as intolerably bad when it's bad. Unlike an incompetent movie, which is much easier for someone with a handheld camera to half-ass their way through to a finished product. Pic related, Psychic Wars is fucking terrible.

Apocalypse Zero is a fucking masterpiece with legit great humanistic politics if you read the manga, also gets super in-your-face about Japanese war crimes and anti-nationalism. Anime focused more on the action-comedy but it's still good.

It's a perfect optimistic companion piece to Shigurui.
Mad Bull manga is fantastic, anime is pretty good, Crying Freeman sadly sucks and removes a lot of the comedy from the manga >>5169
Geist is legitimately good too though definitely very rough; I feel that its "beginner director" traits help as much as harm it though.
Devilman Crybaby is flawed but worthwhile (just read the manga first), Spriggan is super underrated and anti-imperialist in a great way.


City Hunter - silly as hell yet still dope.

But what about the class hatred against the bourgeoisie? Is that better than class hatred against the poor?


I don't even know what's overhyped anymore because everyone who hypes something up says that they're not overhyping it. It's like infowars, you can't even know who's right or wrong. People get very defensive about their favorite anime so I hide in the corner until they leave me alone.


But what if… What if everyone else is right and I understand nothing? But isn't that an appeal to authority? Isn't the so-called "objective quality" just a form of mass brainwashing by the critics so we agree with their opinions all the time? What if the main reason we think of something as good is because others told us it is good so we constantly force ourselves to enjoy things we otherwise wouldn't? Think about how many times our opinions are shaped by those around us.

What if quality is a spook? What if Sword Art Online is actually an underappreciated masterpiece? What if Neo-Yokio is a timeless classic?

Picrel and Pause and Select are definitely on of the better ones out there

>Why, what happened
While, I believe there are some good content creators out there, they are really one in a million nowadays and the amount of trash on youtube is making my autism kick in, that I believe that one should rather ignore ecelebs entirely(which was an iron rule on imageboards at some point), instead of looking for some of the good ones.


Used to like eyepatchwolf until his video on Devotion where he blatantly acted in bad faith and tried to cast KMT war crimes as being done by the mainland PRC. Course the comments ate it all up


>"""content creators""""
>"""opinion makers"""
God I hate this fucking ecelebspeak.
Even fucking nobodies on youtube that supposed to be counter-mainstream or whatever, spout this narrative and related buzzwords. Probably because they sleep and see themselves in PewDiePie shoes. "Please like and subscribe!" FUCK OFF BITCH! I DON'T HAVE AN ACCOUNT BECAUSE I'M NOT A CORPORATE SLAVE!

God bless Invidious! You will not get a penny from me, cocksuckers! Cry me a river!
Youtube should ban these corporate whores from integrating advertisement directly into their videos, they should get their income only through youtube ads, so that I can watch it without fucking ads on invidious.

Жаль продолжение нету


Anime youtube scene has gotten both a lot worse in content recently and a lot better. On one hand you have every retard under the sun making dozens of "youtube shorts" with lame "memes" each, and on the other a lot of animators have come out with new stuff as animation tech makes it easier to get things released.
