Attack on Titan, season 4 episodes are coming out and I've been meaning on watching the show since 2013.

After watching seasons 1 - 3 I can see why this anime was banned in China. The whole thing is an analogy of Japan's "justified" racism against the entire world and season 3 literally ends with Eren looking at where China would be and saying, "If we kill everyone there, will we be truly free?"

I know the counter is that Eren is "mentally damaged" or somthn, but the ideology isn't criticized at all, with the closest exception being the court room scene where Eren gets his shit kicked in by Lavi.

Everything else of the show is fine except with certain plot points. (How the fuck do people defend Erwin, he literally fucked up and almost killed everyone in the mission because he was too inpatient to let Eren get more time to control the Titans. I know later it's explained he couldn't but at the time it was unknown). Maybe I'll watch season 4 if they do actually counter the ideology at hand, granted though the addition of the final arc seems extremely tact on and didn't have enough built up at all.

It is much worse than I remember yet there's just something so charming and nostalgic about the oldschool style. The imperfections of cel animation, the city pop-ish music, the environments.

I don't even know what to watch
When I'm about to watch some anime I get this feeling of shame that won't let me do it. I think it's been too long since I did. Even opening a visual novel requires a lot of effort.

But anyway, what should I watch? To be fair, I still haven't watched many of the classics such as Cowboy Bebop. I had downloaded some stuff like LoGH, Death Note and Pretty Cure but I lost my hard drive before I finished (or started) them.

I mean, the show is definitely entertaining, but you really have to wonder what is going in Isayama's head. He seams like a fucking genocidal Maniac. If this really is an analogy to Imperialist Japan, then you can safely say that Isayama is a damaged individual, who lacks historical Knowledge.

Regardless of that, I generally like the show and most of the cast. One of the better Animes of the last decade. Haven't read the last 5 chapters, because Eren is now going beyond mental and I don't see it stopping tbh. I think Isayama has written himself into a Cornern and the only way for it to end faithful to the plot, is for one side of the conflict to be entirely "genocided".
7/10 for me. Maybe better, if he can pull of a good ending, which I don't believe

The anime goes into depth and enhances strategies, while overlapping them with more obstacles, within one game.

Went through the entirety of Black Clover so far. Started watching it because friends were streaming it and remembered thinking "this is the most shonen thing I've ever seen" because of its overwhelming number of predictable tropes. But it turned out to have a surprising pleasant overarching story. I like that there's actual character development, even if it seems like they're doing it to consciously say "see, we can do actual character development". I'm not surprised to learn that the show has been canceled, that's what Pierot gets for all the shitty fucking filler they tried to shove in people's mouths. People wised up to their grift after Naruto. Never start an adaptation before the source material has finished.

>Eldians are basically enslaved in Marley and so that on top of the years of titan attacks makes eldia mostly justified.
It's obvious that the author will have to make up shit if he wants to portray Japanese imperialism in a positve light, which becomes very easy if you are talking about said historical era through an allegory within a piece of fiction. Look at the justification for the enslavement of Eldians. They have to be slaves because they are very evil which is because they enslaved people. This is just so fucking retarded. The real life justification for imperialism was always might makes right and/or dehumanization and/or white man's burden, because deriding people for their immorality is pretty hard when you are the ones who are committing atrocities against them. It's a lot more efficient or even necessary to place victims of colonialism outside of the shared space of humanity and therefore morals altogether.

The reason why Isayama has written it this way is because just like any proper fascist he is very good at projection. In this case, he is projecting the crimes of Japanese imperialism onto its victims so he can say that we the Japanese are the real victims because we are forced to apologise for our war crimes. Of course many other things point to the Eldians being the Japanese like how they are the small island nation who committed crimes against the big mainland nation.

I just watched the dota netflix anime, and was really surprised how damn good it was (maybe it was cause I expected it to suck a lot more).
With pretty much everyone having a bit of depth and valid reasons for their actions, no good/evil shit, and nice fight scenes. I learned more about dota lore in a single episode than in 10 years playing the game, and it even managed to get me interested with it.

I'd say the main shortcoming was a bit of a pacing/cutting issues (heard they had to cut 5m per episode which might explain it), and one of the antagonist motivations could be a bit more fleshed out
