>Popular isekai anime KonoSuba and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, as well as several others, have been banned on certain sites in Russia recently. The Russian court decided that the isekai (meaning "otherworld") titles "promote reincarnation beliefs" and show that "after death, there can be a more full and interesting life, free from control of one's parents."
>On Monday, the Russian district court in Saint Petersburg banned a total of five anime titles, citing the federal Russian law for the protection of children from harmful information. The list of banned series includes isekai anime KonoSuba and That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, comedy horror anime Zombie Land Saga, comedy romance Nekopara and harem anime Princess Lover!.
>"The court has ruled that, for example, KonoSuba: God's Blessing on this Wonderful World! promotes reincarnation beliefs by showing that after death there can be a more full and interesting life, free from control of one's parents. The world after death is shown to be colorful, full of adventures and offering an opportunity to lead an indulgent life full of drinking, sexual relations and unlawful activities, while the real life is shown as joyless and filled with loneliness."
Hopefully a wakeup call for leftist weebs who advocate for censorship to protect the children unironically. Has it ever occurred to you that isekai is dangerous because a child watching isekai MIGHT commit suicide to be reincarnated? No? And why is that? Maybe just maybe there is a difference between fiction that is blatant wish-fullfilment disconnected from reality and suicide cult propaganda?
This is where "all fiction is political" analysis got us. Fucking retards.
The one who doesn't get it is you, OP. >>7295
How can he be right when his own post is not consistent with itself? Did the state analyze Konosuba and others? Yes. They didn't take action arbitrarily while his post implies they did.
OP:>a far right conservative government banning isekai for religious reasons is the result of leftist analysis of fiction and you all should take it as a wake up call>not all fiction is political>political means propaganda
He argued against these three points of yours. What part do you not get?
>>7303>>a far right conservative government banning isekai for religious reasons is the result of leftist analysis of fiction and you all should take it as a wake up call
*the state took action against frivolous entertainment on the basis of interpreting it as dangerous propaganda; this is the ultimate conclusion of the belief that all fiction is political for even the most inoffensive fiction can uncharitably be interpreted as propaganda and thus nothing will be safe anymore if this continues, let's not contribute to the problem people
Nowhere are religious reasons stated nor does the state being right-wing matter when the implication is that any state could do this using the same method. Nor is it stated anywhere that this is "leftist" analysis being employed.>not all fiction is political
Precisely. I don't know how you can read their analysis of Konosuba et al and not go "what the fuck, they're reading way too deep into it".>political means propaganda
Political media is propaganda.
You're a certified retard
>>7304>this is the ultimate conclusion of the belief that all fiction is political
It's the conclusion of some guys having power to censor shit they don't like for arbitrary reasons and people who like that shit having zero power to counteract.
Random stuff people on the internet believe doesn't enter this equation at all.
People can believe any number of abstract concepts like "free speech" and "human rights" as hard as they can, it wouldn't change how society works unless they put in the work.
This thread has 79 more replies than it should have.
You're a certified theorylet.>>7311
I don't want to, make an actual argument.
>>7317>I dont want to read
>>7296>state takes action against konosuba because it "negatively affects the children"
let's see, what ideology can we think of that absolutely and irrationally loses it's shit over DA CHILDRUN? hmmmm, ohh yes, the "muh family" meme fascists and conservatives, who state nearly all issues from LGBT people existing to immigration of non-europeans within the context of protecting the children, accusing these groups of being disproportionately pedophiles even as families continue to be the setting for most abuse of young people. >the state is implying by their behavior that konosuba is undesirable political propaganda
by being anti-suicide? that mostly strikes me as a religious objection, which would make sense seeing as the Putin regime is very much in bed with the Orthodox Church, throwing it all sorts of bones in exchange for unconditional support. I can't even think of what ideological opposition to suicide would exist in Putin's Russia that isn't religious - after all, someone comitting suicide could well be one of Putin's enemies, why the hell would he care? since the censorship is almost certainly in service of hyper-religious ideology, I think we can safely conclude that this too has laughably little to do with leftism. indeed leftism so far has done the best job in history of removing the stupid delusions of religion that lead to this court decision to begin with. >political propaganda
look, I'll admit that I've done Marxist analyses of Super Paper Mario in my spare time for fun, but merely analyzing a text politically does not amount to calling it propaganda. Propaganda exists for a political purpose, whereas entertainment merely exists to entertain - apparently to you only things that exist for political purposes can ever be examined politically. and yet there was a big outcry over Cuties - could it be that fucking nobody shares your stupid views on everything other than written law being nonpolitical?
I don't want to read a bunch of shit I'm not interested in to intuitively understand what the fuck are you trying to say, make an argument yourself.
THIS ATTITUDE, RIGHT HERE. YOU NEVER ENGAGE CRITICALLY WITH ANYTHING, YOU NEVER CARE TO THINK, YOU NEVER CARE TO EXAMINE, YOU JUST WANT TO EAT SLOP LIKE A DAMN PIG. POLITICAL ANALYSIS DIDN'T RUIN THE GAMES AND SHOWS OF MY CHILDHOOD, THE COMMODIFIED IGNORANCE OF STUPID IDIOTS LIKE YOU, UNWILLING TO STAND UP FOR ART AGAINST CAPITALISM, RUINED IT. YOU DID THIS. FUCK YOU.
I engage critically with things I care about, if you want me to engage with your argument you have to make it first.
somebody without the attention span for anything longer than a tweet is not someone who'd be convinced by an argument. go back to the gym, stupid dumb chad scum.
RANGE BAN USA FROM INTERNET
Nobody's gonna read every work of Althusser to try to guess what the fuck kind of point a random schizo on an anime board tried to make.
>>7366>hates reading>hates anime>only wants to lift
go away and lift then, chad. nobody online will ever want to talk to you, go fuck one of your girls.
Althusser is literally one of the most significant modern Marxist figures and you're saying you haven't the slightest clue about his most important contributions? Holy shit.
i tried playing that crap recently. it was the only one i skipped between 1 and 9 and now i'm glad i did. aside from the fact the game is horribly broken and dead easy, the story is awful. quistis was the only likable character in the party and yet the game forces you to pursue the cutesy ditzy rich girl instead. at least 7 killed the cutesy girl at about the time you start to realize that tifa is better, and the best character, cait sith, even dances happily in response to her death. 8 was so bad i started playing 9 again just so i could like the series again. i'll probably play 4 again at some point because i want to fug adult rydia enough to get hard over pixels. rydia is so hot when she grows up, why couldn't square maintain that level of character design? the only time i connected with anyone in 8 was when squall would say "…whatever" because that's exactly how i felt about the shit story i was watching.
First Russia next the world
based. basically all isekai is dogshit
What's this insinuating? Life in Russia is such pure hell that the slightest suggestion of reincarnation maybe being for real might make kids kill themselves? lmaoanarcho-nihilismAnarcho-Nihilism
So more black trans characters should added in anime then?
konosuba is shit.viet_congViet Cong
>>7580>more black trans characters should added in anime then
the da fak ur going on about
Unexpectedly based Putin
Fuck, I have to do this for infinity? Maybe hell was real after all
I thought about something like this while I was high
before. Everything exists, nothing non-exists.
this presumes that time only exists because life perceives it, which is subjectivism. this person believes they can't possibly stop perceiving the world, because they believe the world is itself created by their perceiving it.
Considering suicide rates and that the reasoning itself correct, I don't see the problem with this ban, especially since anyone who is of age and a normal non-suicidal anime fan can use a VPN or Tor to watch banned anime. >>7123
For you maybe it's boring (or maybe you're just watching dumb 1-2 season mass produced isekai instead of actually good ones. >>7122
They don't particularly watch any of the 5 mentioned, Naruto, Evangelion, Serial Experiments Lain, and other 90s-2000s classics are the preferred content there.
t. 2ch poster>>7141>someone can use this logic to claim isekai encourages suicide
Yes, because it is LOGICAL, that's the point you fucktard. You sound like those retards whining about violence censorship because "it's fine" despite numerous studies proving that kids are impressionable and until their adults, are prone to being influenced by media and social groups, even adults are not immune to this, but due to being grown up are more stable than a hormonal teen or naiive child.
No-Censorship faggots are just lolberts in denial, get a fucking grip.
censorship is for fags and you're king faggot
queen* faggot, sorry
>>8774>no escapism allowed
imagine being this much of a wagie bootlicker holy fuck
>>9147>wagie bootlicker<buzzwords are so cool, let me spam them incoherently!
1) There is more than Isekai as a fantasy you dullard
2) a little fantasy and escapism is fine, being a weeb obsessed with this shit because your life is shit instead of trying to improve your life or at least find enjoyment IRL is being sick in the head and requires help, of which suicide is not a good option
So yeah, imagine being so ass mad because "muh animu"
ban all anime becuase its all mierda
I'm glad you agree with the capitalist psychiatrist hegemony. Now back to work, wagie!
>>7111 >Russia Bans Isekai Anime <KYM
