Hellsing and Hellsing UltimateIt was always weird to me that both of these exist and are so different in every way.
Catharsis in Anime & MangaHave you ever noticed that a large portion of anime and manga expresses the desire to escape from the monotony of late capitalism in Japan? There's a prevalence of scenarios in seinen (young adult / 20-50s~) media which protagonists are taken in by loving females. As well as a bulk of romcoms to support Japan's large population of "herbivore males" (men uninterested in relationships.)
I watched the first 6 episodes of NGENGE GENERAL
Inspirational anime quotesSome of these are cringy, lol.
Dragon Ball Z and Naruto Hate ThreadThese two are supposed to be the Citizen Kane of anime, everyone loves them, yet they are such fucking garbage, literal trash, why are they so fucking bad holy shit.
Sakura IllustratedHey! I just scanned and uploaded a collection of Genpei Akasegawa's left wing political cartoons from the 1970s. You can find it here:
so-bad-it's-good animuHow 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.
"Tomboy" has been robbed of its meaning.When I was a wee lad I read Katawa Shoujo and ended up really liking Emi. She hit all the right spots for me personality wise. I finished her route with the impression that she was supposed to be the token tomboy among the main girls. To my astonishment, when I went on the Katawa Shoujo forum I found out that other people did not consider her a tomboy. How? She's the athletic, bold, energetic girl who likes to play rough. Did I not just describe a tomboy? Is it because she doesn't "look" like a tomboy? Ridiculous. It was as if at some point I had been transported to bizarro world where the word tomboy had been hijacked by pathetic fetishists who now tied the word tomboy to physical appearance.

Treatment of AnimatorsDiscussion 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?

Naruto GeneralIs there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara. I'm not talking about Gedou Rinne Tensei Uchiha Madara either.

Vtuber generalNot much of a vtuber fan, I only occasionally watch clips, but I'm saddened to hear that even something as innocent as the vtuber sphere has been infected with politics and will breed new reactionaries out of lonely people with nothing better to do. Is no form of escapism safe from politics anymore?

Sanrizuka Struggle MangaI'm not entirely sure whether this is the right place to post this but I thought that some of you might appreciate it sure here I am. The manga is centered the Sanrizuka peasantry's struggle against the erection of an airport on their land and therefore echoes many of the themes discussed on this site. Anyways, you can download the first two chapters here: https://berndscans.blogspot.com/

Lefty Animator Appreciation ThreadLet's have a thread for commie / left wing animators.
Sonny BoyWhat do you guys think about this show so far? This anime has been taking me for a whirl several times, sometimes within the same episode. I'm still not sure if the show is any good or not, though. I think this is one of those situations where the ending of the show can really make or break the entire experience but for now I'm enjoying the ride.
Itasha appreciation threadIt'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.
Dorohedoro Threadthoughts on this manga? i watched the anime and am a fan of the artstyle.
Was Miura "a victim of his own success?"So to speak. More like, how much of Miura's death is due to the consequences of his position in the anime industry?
3d animeIs 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?

Dragon Ball SuperSo in the latest DBS Storyline there's a group of porkies who used to commission the Freiza Force and use their Saiyans to destroy a planet and it's residents and then clean things up and then sell it to the highest bidder for money
YOU and ME and HERAll hail Azathot, the Slut Sultan, the Netorare Chaos at the Center of the Universe. Unless you're more into Yandere Cthulhu, that is.
Mind Game AnimeHello. I want some anime that have people attempting to outsmart each other as a major part of the show. I already watched Death Note, Code Geass, Hyouka, Classroom of the Elite, Kaiji, Akagi, No Game No Life (some of it was nonsense, but some of it was really impressive), The Promised Neverland, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (I am mentioning this one even though it wasn't mainly focused on mind games so nobody suggests it anyway), One Outs, Talentless Nana, Kakegurui and Zankyou no Terror (it focused on mind games at the start). Please tell me of more mind game anime.
Aot editMade an AOT edit, i will just leave it here , hope you engoy it ^^ https://youtu.be/OaLKY2ZyJ-Q
The "School Setting"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?
Fuck orientalismI'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.
Golden KamuyExtremely good & extremely underrated in the West. Still ongoing.
CastlevaniaJust watched the new season of Castlevania the other night on Netflix and it wasn't too bad. The animation seems significantly jankier this season in a lot of places and it looks like they're using the awful CG models from Berserk or Kingdom or some shit at times. A couple of the fights are really fluid and fun, but a lot just looked… bad.
Two senior animators leave MAPPA>I don't know what I worked so hard to get into this company for.
Joseph Stalin unironically has an anime soundtrack.Assuming this Kenji Kawai is the same artist as for the old DEEN Fate adaptation, the Man of Steel and wartime USSR have their own soundtrack.

New episode dropped (yeah!)Hey friendos its saturday you know what that means
Outlaw StarWhy doesn't anyone seem to make imaginative adventure fiction like this anymore? One thing I always really liked about this series was its blending of fantastical elements with high technology. Even though there's all sorts of crazy stuffy in the Outlaw Star universe, every phenomenon seems to have its limits and has to operate by some sort of rules.

Let's talk OregairuYesterday I finished watching season 3, and I haven't been able to put it out of my mind since. I don't like that, it's just a high school romantic comedy after all. Hopefully writing a few lines about it will make that go away.
Modern and New anime.I am an old fag. Today I decided to compile a playlist of all my favorite anime. I made a list including Neon Genesis, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, etc etc etc.
Is this true?>The average persons eye captures “around” 60 frames per second (fps). While on this drug the fps of a persons eye is significantly lowered. It's been known that some shows, particularly anime, will have images or video superimposed into the show that flash in these lower frequency's, so that those who have this drug in their systems will see them, while sober people won't… Yep. Seriously.
Kamiinai/ Sunday Without GodDoes anyone know how the light novels ended? I really liked how the anime started, (and this scene was amazing.) I just lost interest after the main character's father died and they had to invent a bunch of random new arcs with throwaway characters while she traveled the planet. They should've kept the zombie dad instead of killing him since he actually had some character development in the first 3 episodes, unlike the moe characters they added later.

Dr. Stone discussion, could there be a way to make it better?Dr. Stone's premise is quite intresting but I feel it don't really uses it's premise to it's fullest. I mean Tsukasa's plan to destroy all of the adults and to try to "Stop Science from existing" is doomed to fail, not to mention his conclusions are entirely based on the notions of "Human Nature" and "Adults being greedy".
