How did Hathaway go from being a whiny bitch to in-minecraft'ing fascist politicians?


>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.

Takeshi Kitano recently said he's gonna vote for the JCP, does that count? In Japan is better to not express political opinions if you aren't a LDP lapdog.
For example, last year, the famous mangaka Naoki Urasawa posted on twitter a doodle he made of Abe wearing a mask in reference to the two masks the government sent to everyone and got lynched for being "disrespectful". There were also people who supported him of course, but IIRC he was forced to take it down.


better than nothing

>Q: Is Tanya the Evil satire on how righitoids feel towards communism? I read somewhere that the writer was left leaning but I can't find a source on that. If anyone else has seen the show care to put in your thoughts?
A: Well yeah, *sniff* if you actually look at Tanya, she's presented as a horrible person and a fascistic capitalist who wants to show the world Chicago School Economics. The author is directly trying to show *sniff* how social darwinist types are sociopathic terrible people that would become mass murderers in a heartbeat if given the power.
Right-wingers don't see the *sniff* pure distillation of chauvinishtic Japanese capitalist ideology since they want to *sniffffff* self-insert themselves as the 30-year-old who gets isekai'd into a loli Hitler.

The Japanese didn't even try to use a Russian name did they? Still, cool to know. Interesting that he didn't use the god armor of, say, Perun.


>each human is granted the assistance of a valkyrie who transforms into a powerful weapon tailored for their user's combat style called "Volund", at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed
Sounds kinda similar TBH


Wow this board is basically a time machine lol.
Canonically, gold saints move at the of light and their punches pack as much power as a supernova. They're OP as shit.

>gold saints move at the of light and their punches pack as much power as a supernova
Jesus, Joseph and Mary that's definitely in the top tier of DBZ power scaling.
I asked cause I read some fanfic long time ago that had Goku and Saint Seiya spar for fun and be evenly matched in a multi-crossover tournament.


Things that are not anime and manga are also okay, and communist cosplay is even better.

Given that the OP image got deleted Melons months ago and this thread is as a result KIA, I suggest making another if the mods can't replace the OP image and merging this one into the new thread for convenience.

>the ultimate white people food.
That feel when the earliest archeological findings of upright humans in Africa had them living on the coast eating sea food.

Also do Japanese fetishize Black people (muh blacked) like rightoid incels in America do? Like yeah there is some Black on Asian stuff ( >>9029 ), just about every fetish has some content in this porn-addled capitalist culture, but I mean specifically a focus on the fetish. From my observations both personally and in social media, they tend to be into whites and dislike blacks, edging into racism at times.


Something very common to weebs is an obsession in Right-Wing Japanese politics and their treatment of other nations like Korea or China - thus denial of Nanking and other atrocities that the veterans of the wars themselves admitted. "労務者" (rōmusha) programs having individuals that are "willing" or "benefited" kind of ignores the fact that people that live in such conditions have to change to survive - doing this kind of shit and keeping pretenses of pride leads to death; there is a reason some rape victims act more sexually promiscuous after, trauma and dealing in it is terrible.
An example of this is Videos 1 and 2 and article related https://archive.ph/mxVWb

2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KVW-Aryn3PU&ab_channel=FUKUSHIMAVideos https://archive.ph/md5rC
The second video refers to documents uploaded on http://texas-daddy.com/comfortwomen.htm (yes the URL is legit and you can use archive.is if you're wary).

Video 3 is a counter to some of stuff in the first 2 videos

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.

A lot of this early ridiculously violent OVA stuff has a similar vibe where it's filled with gratuitous gore and nudity and not a lot of sense or polish. Koichi Ohata's stuff (MD Geist and Genocyber) used to be called the worst anime ever for pretty much this reason. But the tragedy is it's all easily more interesting than most of the shit we get today


>Ruggington is gone
My night is ruined. Goddammit.
And the new account has none of the GX clips. GODDAMMIT.


The Sub is bland and frankly boring SoL shit that has a fantasy addition. The dub is so random, unfiltered and silly that I laugh enjoy it.



Akira Tsuburaya's anime are often considered terrible or mediocre by a lot of people but I personally enjoyed a lot of the anime.

It's funny I found this picture, because I was also thinking of plastering Shana on my car too. Too bad it costs at least a couple of thousand of dollars.


I'm browsing Pixiv for Shana pictures right now. I'm guessing I wouldn't get in trouble if I paid someone to print out an illustration I don't own and paid someone to put it on my car, because the US isn't Japan.

Well, as far as I know, that's quite literally what the "ita" means, in addition to being a reference to how expensive they are.
>In the 1980s, when Japan was at the zenith of its economic might, Tokyo's streets were a parade of luxury import cars. Among them, the "itasha"—originally Japanese slang meaning an imported Italian car—was the most desired. Since then, itasha (as the decorated vehicle) was derived from combining the Japanese words for itai (痛い, painful) and sha (車, vehicle).[3] Itai here means "painful", with additional senses of "painfully embarrassing" → "cringeworthy", "painful for the wallet" due to the high costs involved, or "painful to look at" (an eyesore). The name is also a pun for Italian cars (イタリア車, Itaria-sha), truncated in Japanese slang as Itasha (イタ車).[4]

>Ita-bags serve to publicly express how much their owners love a particular fictional character or media franchise. In that respect, they are the equivalent of itasha, "painmobiles", which are cars covered with fandom-themed stickers and decals.[5] In both cases, the "pain" refers to the pain inflicted on the bag or car, and to the owner's wallet. Ita-bags are an expensive hobby, given that some buttons are of a limited edition and command high prices. Some fans spend more than the equivalent of a thousand U.S. dollars on their ita-bags.[1] When creating ita-bags, fans often "buy the same item many times."[3]


<When creating ita-bags, fans often "buy the same item many times."

Wow, I remember buying all of the (identical) buttons of a particular character I liked back in my teenage years, just so no one else would have them, once. Maybe I could use them for an itabag. Too bad I will never like Shitalia as much as I used to. Maybe an itabag for all the megane characters I like?
Also I wonder if my anime button-covered backpack in middle school counted as an itabag.


>>it might be fun to ruin a classic Continental with itasha, for a car that actually has some fucking power behind it
What would you put on it? If you're still on this site, that is
>really make the boomers absolutely LIVID


>Itasha is literally cringeworthy car
LMAO the more I learn!

thoughts on this manga? i watched the anime and am a fan of the artstyle.

i watched a video summary and spoilers the story is basically these magic users who live in a separate dimension abuse the human dimension and have contributed greatly to humanity living in poverty and suffering and regular genocide for "testing" of their scientific powers. from what i understand, the power relations are that the wizards are colonizers except they do it for fun and pleasure. basically the main character discovers his past and has multiple personalities and finds out that one of his personalities has materialized from the hatred of the humans towards the sorcerers from the past. the final battle ensues and the protagonist comes to the conclusion that the final enemy has turned into the exact same as their oppressors. For some reason, this ending, if it was described correctly as the video summary was rushed, really pisses me off. the wizards are the clear scumbags and abusers, and despite being walled off into a caste society, the entirety of the society is complicit and participates in abusing the human dimension. the final antagonist spoilers:which represents the rage of humanity wants to genocide the sorcerers but is stopped and the moral message seems to be that when you overthrow your oppressors you will probably turn into them and that your oppressors are humans too that you can get along with. of course, the protagonist was invested in defeating the final antagonist because their best friend, who was in the human dimension and helped him kill the genocidal sorcerers, would also be targeted indiscriminately, but the ending reeks of dont kill your rulers because there might be a chance you kill a good one, aka dont start a revolution.

idk, im just angry, but is the manga worth checking out and reading in its entirety? i only read some of the manga and watched the anime, and i would be disappointed if this is the logical conclusion of the manga. Is there more nuance and awareness of this? it seems in the ending, the power balance remains and nothing fundamentally changes. ill probably still read it because i like the artstyle, but I wish there was less of these apologia for "both sides" just because we got to know the characters of the oppressors.

> Kaiman is a cunt for murdering or attempting to murder random wizards just to found out about his real identify,
Given the context OP gave this seems based.


>Ebisu experimented on people like any other magician
To be honest, I don't recall the circumstances of her transforming Kaiman into a lizard, I only remember that she made money by selling her smoke at high prices. But then after she gets her face torn off by Kaiman she doesn't do anything evil.


Like that anon said it drags on a bit later on and the conclusion and final message are kinda mehhh but it's still really fucking fun, so I recommend reading it. The characters are the best part of this manga.


File: 1629689926368.jpg (496.79 KB, 1446x2048, EwCcJ3DUUAUlwAP.jpg)

I really liked the manga up until Kaiman becomes like 5 different people and as others have said it meanders a lot until that point and the conclusion leaves much to be desired. Regardless, I still think it's worth a read for all the fun and insane bits a plot summary leaves out.


>thoughts on this manga
