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.

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?

I prefer the doujin adaptation


Whenever I think back on this series all I can remember is
being sung over Amazing Grace for some reason.


Extremely based

Favourite anime related Youtubers? Why especially do you like them? Is there even a point in watching one of them?

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

Why, what happened

I may agree with this, but going overboard on the opposite direction is just as cringe

They are just people, I like hearing people's opinions on things

Elevating them is the problem


>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.

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

there are people who unironically think that lelouch and light are both part of the anti-hero archetype and it drives me fucking insane


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.


>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.

I suggest trying it today - it's not actiony but it is wholesome and kinda inspiring to me


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.

Why is the school setting liked so much in anime? It cannot just be that the target audience is mostly children, because there are a lot of anime of this sort oriented to older otaku also. Do anime ever make more than passing attempts at portraying so called "adulthood" as a future to be excited about?

Forgot I already answered this.

Leftypseuds can write paragraphs and paragraphs over easily answered questions. Your elderly otaku ass isn't the target demo.

Lots of adults watch Adventure Time and Harry Potter and My Little Pony and whatever.

Only manga like Battle Royale(I know it's originally a novel) or something could we consider to be high school stories aimed at an adult demo.


the mistake is taking school seriously beyond learning to read, write and basic maths.


Its not like you have a choice. Adults make you take it seriously. Yet, when you graduate, they just shrug you off. All that acdemic bulkshit you go through and they say "meh you dont know shit" even though they crininalize kids for skipping school.

I really think adults underestimate the treachery of school largely because theyve been away from it for so long.
Thats the beauty of childhood nostalgia and marketing.


It could be a cultural difference
From what i can tell japanese schools are usually better than ones overseas
In america unless you went to a good school you're lucky to get one that has clubs and shit to hang out in


What i find funny about the school setting is that a lot of these anime don't even take place in the school itself
It's just there to remind you that these characters are in fact teenagers that go to school, but then they just stop having them attend school at some point

Death of the Author sucks. It is cited almost exclusively by idiots and for the wrong reasons too.


Writing quality severely in some areas with some highlights. I think it would've been more fair for me to say pre-Kage summit to be in C tier and afterwards to be in D tier. But an example of what I'd consider bad writing is the ending of the Pain Invasion which, to me, was a fantastic arc with a horrible resolution making all of the stakes of the invasion meaningless.


Funniest post in the thread.

No reason for why it should be dismised for the review, (something that makes the review look as if the author wanted to hate the show); no reason for why it's bad; and no arguments on a "good" usage – all to handwave the rest of the comment.

Yea fair.
I still enjoyed it since it's the final turning point of Naruto's reputation – if the creator was allowed to kill more characters, and make this the final arc before Naruto vs Sasuke, it would've been much better.
Granted, some bullshit would've occured, since the original big 3 had to suffer from something.


Everyone of your posts is just peak midwit and reddit


Whatever makes you feel better.

Why does any fictiin depicting children/teens as main characters is always automatically called "pedophikia bait" or "unrelatable to proper adults"?


>This is an adult woman.
99% of Alunya images depicts her as a little kid and drawn as one since the first design


She's drawn as a short woman, one of the earliest designs of her aged at like 20
