Recently learned about nagashi soumen, which is like, ramen sliding down a half bamboo with a gentle stream of water pushing it along.


There is no Japanese culture. Most of what exists is a construct created to keep the citizens hikkimorized, supine servants of western hegemony. It's so successful it was exported to Korea and now it's come home to the metropole.


How much is a normal price for sushi? The local grocery store sells like, 3 rolls for 10 USD and a plate for 15, and 10 bucks seems rediculous for just one meal where the main ingredient is rice.


Why do people constantly call the saga of Tanya Mangaka a communist? just stumbled upon the guy's feed and it's full of boomer takes, SDF shilling(this is the complete antithesis of the JCP), and anti-communist retweets.

On top of that, Riyoko Ikeda(The Rose of Versailles) who was a member of the Japanese communist party in her youth is now doing interviews with LDP and butt buddies with a senior member. The Riyoko one is far more shocking than the nazi anime girl

the light novels are way less sympathetic to tanya and her psychopathic ways iirc

mangaka were hard leftists before the socialist party crumbled and now you see a lot of boomer takes from the old legends. Regarding the topic, you know how many mangakas collab with the ruling government? A shitload, the "Cool Japan campaign" was the smartest thing the incompetent right wing LDP did


>To be fair, tanya the evil can very easily be read as communist
I wouldn't say that, since Zen very clearly has a low opinion of the Soviet Union. Some form of anti-capitalism as well as criticism of hyper-individualism is definitely there though.
>Tanya, who is an anti-communist herself, is portrayed as an objectively bad person, being actively punished by literally God.
She's also portrayed as a hypocrite who doesn't even believe in her own ideological principles, and is guilty of the things she accuses her enemies of. She hates commies because they supposedly kill people who aren't opposing them, yet she goes out of her way to massacre civilians and slip by on technicalities. She openly says that she would be okay with taking away other people's freedom as long as nobody takes hers, etc. These behaviours are also self destructive, since all her efforts to secure a peaceful position in the rear by doling out more violence only push her further into harm's way, and cause her enemies to multiply and become more determined. Her obstinate refusal to acknowledge anything outside of her own ego literally dooms not just her but the Empire.
They also go into more detail about how miserable she is during the whole affair. Remember that this reincarnation was intended as a punishment, and it is effective as one. This is somewhat lost in the anime since they don't get into the internal monolgues as much.

Only David-kun is any good.
Punpun is overrated, am I supposed to empathize with a kid's drawing of a bird?


It started good with an unique rough style. The story now is alright but I don't loike how "normal" the art has become.


which one is the cutest, funniest and prettiest?
i want to collect and read


I would say Bonnouji, but Punpun is visually beautiful also.



It's very silly and funny!

And the main couple is really cute!!!

>Humanity has been driving away the Demon Lord's army for a long time by summoning "Heroes" once every 100 years. But one day, the Demon Lord's army devises a countermeasure to the Heroes: entrap and kill them when they're in a defenseless state straight after the summoning. To commemorate this historic fear, the Great Demon Lord designated that year as "Year One of Entrapment Killing." The Heroes have all been slaughtered by the Demon Lord's forces ever since. Fast forward to today, Year 1000 of Entrapment Killing: the summoners are very worried. "What kind of Hero should we call? I don't know… Someone take this out of our hands!" And thus, they summoned Hiroyuki, creator of 2channel and the master at settling debates.
That's right Japan is still in the "owned with facts and logic" phase of online discourse.

Never even heard of the guy till i read manga. It was incredibly bland one, i might add. And the "arguments" that he uses to defeat the opponents are "a stupid's man idea of what smart person is like" i would say, they also make you suspect that everyone in isekai world are completely retarded by actually taking them seriously.


hes the guy behind 2ch, the biggest anonymous board ever, and who later bought 4chan
hes always been slimy, even in the 90s


Did he wrote this manga himself or was it just some admirer?


this explains it all.

probably explains why 4chan is the way it is today too.


>Then, the contracts and money goes from LDP to Hotlink and then to the Hiroyuki-owned 2channel. Therefore, the sponsor of 2channel is, in reality, Japan’s Government Party LDP. Those disclosures were shocking because, according to its own official announcement, 2channel is a discussion board with no commercial interest. Administration is done by unpaid volunteers, and everybody was told that the highest value of the board was nothing but FREE SPEECH.
This is just hilarious.

if you think it's the only problem there, you most likely never even read a Manifesto.

It's just "sounds good in theory, but doesn't work in practice, people are too lazy, they won't work without someone forcing them" kinda of argument that capitalist ideologies like to repeat ad nauseum, just in more words.


Into the bin it goes.


Well then leftoids need to stop praising any media just because it pays lip service to vague fucking 'anti-capitalism', not even communism.


Is that what it originally said or what the translator wanted it to say?

Didn't Badiou hate Deleuze tho?

How's the manga coming along?
Stopped two years ago when they caught some chick a year ago, and forgot to check up.

The series seems cool, it was just too slow on uploads despite feeling like a massive story that needs to be told.
Similar with Vinland Saga, but at least Vinland doesn't have a bad arc after its anime adaption.

Who the hell is even the target audience for this cringeworthy shitshow these days? I'm seriously curious.

Big Bang Attack


12 year olds and manchildren
I've noticed a lot of weepy, emotionally unwell gym bros fall into the orbit of this show.
Also, I don't give a shit about this show, but as a gay dude, it can be pretty hot to open up a clip of some battle scene, put it on mute, and watch two muscular men punching each other



Was Toriyama Arrested? I've been hearing this shit and I don't know where it's coming from.

>Black Panther Party
Fucking ew


>>years of lead
I'd kill to see a Mamoru Oshii years-of-lead movie. The failure of the New Left basically haunts his entire filmography and he visibly loathes capitalist society as hard as Miyazaki Jin-Roh and Patlabor 2 being the most obvious examples


that reminds that the next animu I watch should be patlabor, I get the impression that its basically the anime DS9 in terms of being a show abt a crew of peacekeepers that is way more to the left than you think that premise would allow.


It's good.

The late 1830s, Engels (the male self-insert) is a literal angel sent by god to save the world. Marx is a lazy, sharp-tongued tsundere with pink hair that is always fighting with her friend, the energetic tomboy (with brown/orange hair) Willich. Feuerbach, the cool-headed and reliable big sister/teacher character (black, long hair) often gives them tutelage and advice. Around episode 8 it is discovered that Feuerbach is literally the antichrist and that she is the leader of the shadowy cabal that has been conspiring against the group (mostly because she is jealous of Marx and wants Engels for herself). Engels defeats her in an intense final battle, after which he rejects Willich, who had proposed him around episode 6 after the beach trip, and proposes to Marx - she accepts, and the anime ends as they finally kiss on the ferry to London.
Yes, all the young hegelians besides Engels have to be women.

Always a peculiar feeling when I'm checking a mangaka's twitter and it's filled with retweets of Amerikan political bullshit. Most recent one even had Joe Rogan's clips about the covid vaccine.
It doesn't happen often but ideally it wouldn't happen at all.

<you read books expecting it to be mentally stimulating
Yes. Otherwise I get bored.
>real book
It's paginated (optional) rectangles (optional) inscribed in some way with a contrasting color (preferable, but optional) conveying information.


then don't read manga you absolute retard. you are asking why you can't find the sport results for last week in the new england journal of medicine

Everything about the "Otaku Murderer" case was pure bullshit. Literal self-admitted planted evidence for mass media hysteria. The Japanese media have a history of trying to make someone the big bad evil guy for drama, they did the same for Sengoku Takeyoshi by painting him as the cult leader mastermind that abducted young girls when he’s literally just a nice guy.
