The most blatant to me is how fucking obsessed they are with fascist aesthetics, especially Nazi and Japanese imperial imagery and names. It's incredibly common in anime porn too.

it's so annoying when the Right equivocates pointing out Fascist themes in shows like AoT to criticizing anime in general - as if they wouldn't explode with rage if they watched Revolutionary Girl Utena or Gundam. to some degree analyzing those themes which appear at least somewhat fascistic in AoT is rationalization on my part as to why I felt so totally alienated from the show, and why I disliked it so much, but whether it was subconscious recognition of fascist themes or just a distaste for nu-anime, either way /pol/ are retards for liking it.

Communism is the most Nietzschean thing i can think of, and the absolute madlads that are the most famous revolutionaries confirm my belief.

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 apologize 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. SNK's holy walls are even a parallel to the Typhoons that destroyed the Chinese Fleet centuries in the past, acting as "walls" against invasion. Heck there are characters beign direct parallels to generals and officers of Imperial Japan, pic related.
Of course there is more to it than that, but Imma just link those nuances:

They don't have actual lights,the flares don't produce light,they reflect the sun.
So you either slowly move around with shitty torches on horseback in the dark (which they show at one point),or you kill yourself with the maneuvering gears against a tree in the dark.
Also you have to slice at a very specific place that's one meter long and 20cm wide,making it unpratical if they were on their back except by crawling under,which most people would honestly be quite afraid of,but that's at least feasible,even if very hard without the gear,because you NEED that inertia to cut the nape.
Also Abberants exist,and if they're is only one at the time you're going out that can move at night,your entire corps get killed.
On top of that,it's been tested on TWO titans that they don't move at night,it would be something quite hard to push onto most people that "yeah sure,don't worry,just go kill yourself in the dark with a torch,everything is alright"

these fuckers go on suicide missions all the time and face severe consequences for refusing orders, a night hunt isn't out of the question.
>maneuvering in the dark is hard
then have an elite team train to use them in the dark FFS. You don't have to make this a mainstream method, just use it enough to cull Titan numbers a little.

You know when you guys put it like that killing titans shouldnt be complicated in the slightest, eldia is really primitive compared to the rest of the planet especially Marley whom have domesticated pure titans for god knows how long. It makes sense why they had to be protected from the outside world, those idiots would have a better chance of eating or genociding themselves than being genocided by those dumbass pure titans after all all pure titans can realistically do is eat people, that's it
They cant organize themselves
They cant solve basic problems
They cant identify which humans are shifters
They are made of the same shit humans are made of meaning they're combustible and can be easily electrocuted to near death
They arent immune to fall damage
Most cant or simply dont know how to climb or dig
It's like watching an entire civilization lose a war to ordinary predators, youd assume something only fucking cavemen with sticks and stones would need to be scared of, not a society that caused genocides and massive wars around the planet in the name of eldian imperialism, fucking mosquitoes that can transfer malaria to that island feels like a bigger existential threat…
Anonymous 2021-09-15 (Wed) 06:26:32 No. 9994
the only reason Titans are any threat at all is their insane regeneration and the fact that the 1m area of the nape needs to be totally cut out to permanently deleto them because (spoilers) that's the area of the actual human part's in the Titans - the head to be exact.
Also add to all this - Titans are literally lighter than they physically should be, as the head of a 3m Titan could be kicked by a tteenage girl like a football (soccerball), so technically a basic set of mines could knock Titans off their feet and on the ground people can pin them and cut out that nape.

Nice quads. It gets better, the Attack Titan can change time so theoretically they shouldn't have been able to lose simply by changing history until things go their ay.

I think he never meant to demonstrte the horrors but rationalize them
Anonymous 2021-10-18 (Mon) 18:48:02 No. 10930 >>10922
he rationalized them by showing the horrors of it.
his argument was basically if one side engages nationalism and militarism marley then other nation will also engage in that in retaliation and thus cause tragedy in a massive scale. Aka a cycle of violence that is better to never start in the first place.
The problem is though he ends up saying that tfascism was justified with the fucking paradis getting destroyed ending. In other words, eren was justified in genociding the world, because if he didnt paradise would get destroyed. Now of course this isnt nescarrily bad if eren ends up being demonized by his friends family and huge portions of paradis, BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT LARGE PORTIONS OF HIS FAMILY AND PARADIS WORSHIP AND PRAISE HIM. of course it could be that the worship is shown in a horrific way, to show the scary reality that genocidal maniacs sometimes get worshipped by the population that these maniacs lead. The problem is that isayama doesnt even do that, instead the way erens friends praise him as if hes superman sacrificing his life to save the planet. Literally you have magna panels saying eren your a "real man", and thank you for being a genocidal monster for our sake. And this is coming from the character THAT formed a merry little band to oppose erens genocidal plans in the FIRST PLACE.

if the only two options were genocide humans outside island vs genocide humans in island, then i would choose the island simply because there are way less people there.

It should have ended with Eren winning and genociding the world but through killing his friends he realises what he was doing was wrong and he tries to fix what he did. The ending we got was a massive cop out.
