would anime have still existed if ww2 never happened or if the cold war ended with a red triumph?


Technically, anime did exist before WWII. What happened after it is that modern anime essentially started getting influence from US cartoons (Osamu Tezuka's works), so I think it would still have existed if WWII never happened (but depending on US-Japan relations, it could have been the same as real life or a completely different direction, IDK).
I think it would still exist if the Cold War ended in a Soviet victory, the anime industry would be far healthier for its workers and the negative influences capitalism has on the industry would be absent.


if the cold war ended with a red triumph it would definetly still be a thing, but if ww2 didn't happen i think the industry wouldn't be as large and i don't think we would really have a lot of anime


1. The military would still commission recruitment shows in which soldiers are little girls.

2. The state would still need anti-history indoctrination shows. For example:

2a. During Sengoku the population came to rightly perceive roaming samurai and most warrior monks as demons who robbed, raped and murdered as they pleased. This evolved into a general and correct opinion that those whose profession is war are repugnant scum. Demon hunter became a respected line of work for women whose job was to gain the demons' trust and slit their throats. No demon could fall asleep in a village, drunk after a rape session, and expect to live until dawn, so they needed to sleep in places such as caves. The state became desperate to reverse the soldiers = repugnant scum perception, not unlike European rulers with their knights. The pretense of respect could only be restored with a reign of terror, so you get things like rudeness (shitsurei – lack of bow) to a samurai being punishable by death on the spot. You also get shows like Inuyasha in which the roaming samurai and the warrior monk, the actual demons, are presented as being defenders of the people and fighting alongside the demon hunter women against fictional demons.

2b. For more than a decade after Tokugawa won at Sekigahara and restored the feudal system, Osaka/Naniwa remained a thorn in his side. The resistence Osaka put up during the winter and summer campaigns, against impossible odds and a foregone conclusion, created a general perception that daring to oppose the might of the state is true bravery and abject obedience to the state is cowardice. No state can afford to allow this perception to persist. The state needs to present abject obedience to authority as doubleplusgood and defiance of authority as abhorrent. So Japan went on a 400-year anti-Osaka campaign. This is how you get the anime trope whereby most characters from or named Osaka must be presented as dumb, lazy and useless.


>You also get shows like Inuyasha in which the roaming samurai and the warrior monk, the actual demons, are presented as being defenders of the people and fighting alongside the demon hunter women against fictional demons.
I don't think you've actually seen/read Inuyasha. The samurai are portrayed as pretty thuggish scum in it.

Saw One Piece: Red
If this is included as canon material it's a major fucking retcon, even more so than the goddamn previous movie. Even that aside, it's just kinda boring, like a really long, flash-back filled filler. Bored me to shit and the 'fights' are just inane.

<Admiral Green Thumb gives Shinobu the Big Succ
<She becomes a bouncy girl again
I fucking predicted this, Oda isn't going to do a flashback like that and not have her return to her good looks.


>Oda has communist sympathies because he's got che guevara hanging up in his office
Literal Che LARP is not communist or necessarily communist-sympathy


Just like Stirner lol

No he wasn't, he's a bad person, but that's not a shitty character and unlike any BNHA character his horrible, edgy behavior makes sense - as a 7 year old child he came home to his murdered family, killed by his brother, who subjected him to the Tsukiymoi (wherein the scenes of his family's murder are shown to him on loop for 72 mental hours, and then he has his arm broken and gets the same torture again, gets a curse-seal that influences him into magnifying his cruel and angry urges and he only goes into a tipping point by abandoned his friends to pursue revenge. He only derails fully into madness after Itachi's death and the hidden details about the Uchiha Coup are revealed, leading him to assassinate Danzo in revenge etc. etc. This is fucked up shit that is only comparable in BNHA to maybe Shiggy, but unlike Shigaraki, he never descended into actual mass murder or other shit. Sasuke is an asshole, but he has consistently demonstrated a character realistic for the situations he went through and only at the latter half of Part II did he even begin to demonstrate tendencies of killing unscrupulously.


He really isn't, on multiple occasions he's shown the errors of his assumptions and still chooses the path because he's a complete retard–or the writer is. Psychopathy or anti-social personality disorder is the only way to explain his edge-for-the-sake-of-edge behavior.


BNHA would function far better as a seinen than a shonen


>on multiple occasions he's shown the errors of his assumptions
Yeah no. He gets very little to contradict his worldview in a positive manner, not to mention getting tortured for a mental 3 days+ is not exactly cohesive to positive function. Most of the errors he gets only further his views and hatred, very little contradicted it.

The original pilot idea of Boku No Hero is so much better than the actual serialized manga/anime. Izuku is named Jack, is a salaryman instead of a teenager, and his appearance is a bit more like BNHA's Hitoshi Shinsou and Tetsuo from Akira
It's kind of more interesting a take than the "hero high-school story Number 23241" That BNHA became.

Let's see
>Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15
>Best friend Griffith is a social climbing piece of shit who has to murder and scheme to almost make it to the top, even then the ruling class tells him to go fuck himself and he has to sell his soul to the devil and murder all his friends to finally make it
>The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition
>The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses
>The thing everyone worships is literally evil itself
>Even the leaders of the apostles are pawns of the Market, err…."Idea of Evil"

Downloading Berserk 1997 right now, it will be my first exposure to the franchise.
I will be watching it dubbed.



I binge watched all of it lmao
Can't believe they finished it where they did and that they didn't make a second season. I have the other stuff too but I liked everything about it so much I want more of the same not more but done totally differently.
Why the hell did they make three films about the same material they already used lol


>Why the hell did they make three films about the same material they already used lol
Because everyone likes that part of the story and they wanted to make back the money spent.

The 2016 anime tried to adapt other parts but did an absolutely abominable job, not even worth checking to see it or to laugh at it, truly abysmal, one of the worst attempts at adaptation of all time, hands down. So bad it's completely unwatchable, and scrambles up the timeline for some reason.

Because of the structure of the rest of the series, it would be somewhat difficult to adapt. There are arcs that are relatively short and ones that go on for a long time. Golden Age is relatively self-contained and easier to adapt, but outside of that you are dealing with very long-form character development across many different plots that all tie together. It would be a beast of an undertaking to try to adapt it, especially since there's no point where you could really stop and have a proper conclusion for the overall story.


It's a shame they didn't get another series out of it at the time, I don't think you could make something like it even with an unlimited budget nowadays. The kino but very 90s soundtrack being the most obvious example of its constituent parts.
Smh Griffith just HAD to fuck the princess didn't he. Should have fucked the king instead and all of this could have been avoided.

Not 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?

I'm waiting for a voice changing software to advance enough so that I can get in on the simp fleecing too.


I'm mostly interested in how the industry will mutate or die in the with the wars, recessions, etc of the 2020s/30s, considering it's so directly tied to the extra income of lonely professionals/wagies, with the exception of sponsorships from various sponsorships


I find vtubers enjoyable


I find it hard to believe the companies will survive in their current form for much longer; just Rushia being fired already rocked the boat quite a bit, and given that eventually we're gonna see vtubers dying, getting tired and quitting, etc., it seems like a given that the current structure of vtubing (or at least strictly japanese vtubing) is unsustainable. I can't see the market growing that much more anyway; english-speaking vtubers might still have quite a ways to go, but for languages with smaller demographics there is only so many people interested in watching vtubers (and its hard to believe many people will learn a language just to understand what a streamer is speaking). Also, after a certain point (which I believe we have reached already to a certain degree) any new vtuber that debuts just cannibalizes on the audience of established talent. Streaming is a very time-consuming hobby to watch, and there are only so many hours on the day. Hololive already struggles quite a bit with people streaming on the same timeslot, afaik (and Nijisanji just doesn't give a fuck and has a billion vtubers associated with them). Maybe advertising money can prop things up for a while, but stricly speaking money coming from simps is a very limited revenue source.

That being said, random people using the software to stream without having to show their faces or for roleplaying a character is probably going to stay for good. It's relatively easy to setup, cheap, and safer than alternatives, if you can avoid getting doxxed.


I genuinely have no idea how you think that vtubing will die. The prospect of being a whatever the fuck and streaming whatever the fuck and not having to use your real face is honestly so enticing that I'd be shocked if vtubing dies.

There's something very satisfying in seeing tsundere get what's coming to them.

objectively correct




That's what I hated about Chunibyo, I guess bullying Rikka was meant to be comedic but she looked really hurt afterwards.


What's the material explanation for tsunderes being so popular in anime?


It's a portrayal of woman who acts like she hates you but loves you immensely. So it's basically a fantasy. It maybe cause of the rate of sexual agressions in japan, and turning woman responses of rejection and disgust into love.


Go Nagai's cult classic, post-apocalyptic manga that was adapted into an infamous OVA trilogy.


Yeah? What do you think of them OP?


Pretty interesting, seeing how much it influenced Berserk. Yū Kinutani (mangaka of Amon: The Darkside of the Devilman) is currently working on a remake, Violence Jack 20XX. So far, there are two Tankōbon volumes of 20XX, with a third one to be published in September 20th.

That's a great post anon, too bad though, the existence of this show completly destroys your point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full_House


Ignoring the wojakshit almost everyone I meet who likes CGDCT is some sort of leftist.


seconded. when /pol/ talks about anime, they always back down from CGDCT or even really moe stuff, and will endlessly refer to FIst of the North Star and similar shows. At least publically, they very rarely admit liking anything "unmasculine".
