It's linked to capitalism, sure, but is it being a bad comrade to watch anime?

> Is anime inherently captialist
In the sense that all non-independent media produced in capitalist countries is capitalist, yes, but it's up in the air whether that's a useful sense of the term.
>but is it being a bad comrade to watch anime?
No and anyone who tells you otherwise is a wanker. But we ought to be smart consumers and try our best to identify the potential problems and propagandistic aspects even in media we enjoy.

Anime is actually just a vehicle for advertising. The anime itself is usually an ad for the original material while studios like A1 have subliminal advertising by including sony products.

WHat the fuck is this threat like oh shit /anime/ is worst board on here.

>>3673
>It's linked to capitalism
What the fuck does this even mean? It's a commodity produced under capitalism. All that tells us is that there is a market for it under capitalist relations. There is no further knowledge to be gained here as fas as anime as a thing for itself goes.

> but is it being a bad comrade to watch anime?

WTF? Where does this puritan moralfag way of thinking even comes from? When did we decide that 'its a thing in capitalism, therefore BAD!' Do you think hammers, apple pies or clothes are somehow 'bad' or 'anti-communist'? Guess what, they are also being created as commodities under capitalism.

>>3697
>In the sense that all non-independent media produced in capitalist countries is capitalist, yes,
Wrong. Something being independent or not has NOTHING to do with it being more or less capitalist! How does this even work? 'Independent small business is anti-capitalist, the more independent it is the less capitalist'?


>>3816
>Several anime studios are co-ops.
Again, completly irrelevant to wether or not something is capitalist. There are co-ops running right now under capitalist relations of production.

>>4236
This. Anime has no essence that could be decribed as more capitalist or socialist. It's literally culture and therefore part of the superstructure that is being determined by the base. Even if anime exists today in a hyper-commercialised context that doesn't mean that this is the only way it can be expressed.

Honestly read Marx, this thread nearly gave me an aneurysm.

Yep, easily. This place is like nega-4chan where its /a/ equivalent is the shittiest board around and the fucking video games board is much better.

But that's not true. The only major dump threads are boob/hentai related and aren't even posted in. Most of the big and top threads are discussion.

On the list of things that are unethical to consume because of capitalism, anime or any motion picture, is probably low on that list. Just be smart and don't fall for any fucking propaganda.
