D'you guys think this Tomoko cosplay is good, I thought it was.

 


 

>>24945
Hair non messy enough. She should look somewhat between Marceline and Doc Brown. She's basically Marceline if she was Michael Cera come to think of it, lol.

 

>>24950 (me)
The Mathew Pattel hair bangs are spot on though.

 

Is Tomoko the definition of a true femcel?

 

>>24945
she doesn't have that tired emaciated look that comes from sitting at a screen in darkness for 10 hours every day

 

>>24989
>She's a child.
I didn't say she is a femcel but rather an archetypal mirror of a 30yo NEET whom nobody wants to date. As in there are adults who act exactly like her.

 

>>24994
That's not what you said.

 

>>24995
Don't cling to words plz, it's obviously not what I meant.

>>24995
They stated
"Is Tomoko the DEFINITION of a femcel" by which they're saying that Tomoko's characterization fits said definition. This is fairly obvious.

>>24989

'She' is an illustrated character who is of whatever age the illustrator or author intends her to be. She is not being pornographically described, nor is there unspoilered pornography, so how does being a "child" have anything to do with "being a femcel" you hysterical twat? If you see or hear the mention of a young character, and automatically think "sex" buddy, you need to get help. We call under-age /pol/fags incels, is this suddenly wrong because they're not actually 18? or 17? Take meds and fuck off.

 

>>25000
Age sensitivity is the new discriminator because race and gender are now spooks.

 

>>23033
Imageboards are on par with Reddit in absurdity.
All the whining they do about Reddit and they act just like them with the excessive banning for "wrongthink" and inceldom

 

>>25028
>race and gender are now spooks
Always have been.

 

>>25000
Being a femcel means not getting any sex you fucking retard, it is all about sex.

 

Being "the definition of" means setting the standard for others. It does not mean conforming to a set of already existing standards. I don't think Tomoko is a femcel. She's 15 in the anime and later she ends up with a yuri harem. I don't think a 17 years old /pol/tard can be an incel. At that age it is normal to be alone. It's like claiming that a baby is a cripple because it can't walk yet. Nonsense. You guys need to kill yourselves.

 

>>25041
I didn't think she's a femcel but now that I think about the definition of an incel she is indeed celibate involuntarily. That means that /pol/tards are also incels since it's the "involuntary" part that counts.
>later she ends up with a yuri harem
Is this otaku pandering?

 

>>25041
>well actually no you need to be this age to be this


Once again, age sensitivity is the new discriminator.
Its nornal to be sibgle at 15 but its also normal to be in a relationships.

People think childhood and adulthood are spiritually aprallel when theyre not.

Inceldom is more a pre-disposition than anything.

 

>>25036
Femcel is an aping of incel, as in involuntarily celibate, however the term's usage has become synonymous to "being a loser with no life" which precludes sexual opportunity.

>>25041
Actually link to the post you respond to.
>I don't think a 17 years old /pol/tard can be an incel
Yet people on this site constantly use it, to the point that the term "/pol/cel" is used, and incel is almost always in regards to people of teen/youth age, because of burger social dynamics and the stigma of not losing your virginity before 18 or 21 or whatever.
>It's like claiming that a baby is a cripple because it can't walk yet.
1) False equivalency
2) I agree that the term is abused, but it is an obvious, hyperbolic shitpost, not LITERALLY calling Tomoko a femcel in the sense that she doesn't have sex.

 

>>25094
Based anon, destroyed them with fax and logic.

 

>>25094
incel also applies to people past youth. but theure not focused on as much.

 


 

>>25137
Heheh good one.

 

>>25137
how long until an actual CWC anime?

 

Watamote should’ve ended when she stopped being a loser. Though I don’t think making a sequel from there is a bad idea, it just would be better to simply end the thing instead of being remembered as “that thing that was funny 20 volumes ago”. Not every story has to go in perpetuity.

 

>>25154
I think "stopping being a loser" is just as much of a wish fulfillment as "getting cucked for 200 issues" and "fixing a delinquent boy into becoming a respectable member of society." I feel like this all is made just to appease the conservative Japanese population rather than make a profound commentary on modern Japan like Zetsubou-sensei did (I know the author is a Nettouyo but still).

 

>>25155
i think it's fine, i enjoy the new direction of the manga. i understand people who came exclusively for the loser comedy, but i'm cool with coming of age yuri sol as well. it doesn't have to tie into conservative tropes. would you rather have her develop into a 50 year old hikkikomori with 80 year old parents and die alone? there's already a lot of serious discussion about that in japanese media

 

>>25156
>would you rather have her develop into a 50 year old hikkikomori with 80 year old parents and die alone?
That would be kino tbh

 

>>25159
sad horse show but anime girl

 

>>25156
>coming of age yuri sol
That sounds terrifying.
>would you rather have her develop into a 50 year old hikkikomori with 80 year old parents and die alone?
No, I'd rather have psychological drama about a 30-something hikkikomori who's struggling with depression and slowly trying to escape her miserable existence. And I've seen exactly zero anime and manga which are like that. Even Rent-a-Girlfriend is a wish fulfillment comedy romcom, I expected so, so much more from it. YOU DISAPPOINT ME ONCE AGAIN, JAPS!!
>there's already a lot of serious discussion about that in japanese media
Man, are Japs so fragile. It reminds me of that right-wing talking point of "Games shouldn't be political," even though video games are a unique storytelling device to discuss certain important issues in such depth that isn't possible in a news article. In the West we have Deus Ex, the most sophisticated popular game in terms of raising political issues, and people loved it so what's the matter with Japan then?

 

>>25161
>30-something hikkikomori who's struggling with depression and slowly trying to escape her miserable existence
NHK ni Youkoso…?

>so what's the matter with Japan then?

Japanese culture is heavily adverse to discussing about politics openly. They see it as incredibly rude. At least they're consistent and whatever label a Japanese person applies to themself chances are they will avoid bringing up anything remotely political, unlike most countries where the "apolitical centrists" are the most vocal about their ideology.

 

>>25156
Oh I'm fine with both genres, and I'm not adverse to tonal shift per se either but the original premise of cringe comedy at the expense of a loser girl is much less common than a GLish harem. At least they could've kept some sort of middle point, or a more smooth transition, you know?

 

>>25190
>NHK ni Youkoso…?
Isn't that a sitcom?
>Japanese culture is heavily adverse to discussing about politics openly. They see it as incredibly rude.
Another aspect of the Japanese being incredibly repressed and boring people. I will never be a Wapanese. Even if anime is based, Japan sucks, JAPAN SUCKS!!

Tell me that Osakans are based at least, I have such high hopes for the Kansai region…

 

>>25190
I prefer that. Politics is so shallow amd addicting.
People survived for centuries withput needing to delve deep into it.
When commonfolk were literal componemts to their line of work, there was no time for people to talk about politics daily.

 

>>25205
>Politics is so shallow amd addicting.
Depends on the politics. And no, politics isn't when you constantly say "Capitalism bad," "Orange man bad" or "Patriarchy bad." Deus Ex was more subtle. But yeah, modern politics in art are shallow because zoomer progressives ruin everything they touch.
>People survived for centuries withput needing to delve deep into it.
Politics in art are a form of Situationist rebellion against le modern world. I'd argue that our world would have been much more shallow without it, and looking at modern day Japan, their life is pretty miserable already with all those bullshit rules imposed upon them. Sure, politics in art won't necessarily strike revolts but at least they make you think about your life, something your average salaryman is forbidden to do. I support art that makes you think thoughts, we need more thinking in our society. Not preaching, thinking. Huge difference.

Also, art is a good form of education in general. I know some people are critical of pop science but it's still one of the most engaging ways to teach science that ever existed.

I like the first one, it makes perfect sense.

The second one is Tomoko when the series changes into a harem slice of life.

that's not entirely accurate. they don't talk about it in regular conversation, but there's a lot more public discussion of specific issues rather than political groups per se compared to the west. this focus does have problems of its own (like maintaining ldp hegemony) but my impression is that the japanese have actually named, described and tackled more social phenomena than the west. to go back to the hikkikomori classification as an example, i still haven't seen that much discussion of hikkikomori and associated social illnesses in america despite the fact that it's extremely common there as well. meanwhile japan has been monitoring them, training social workers, and giving updates on their situation. same thing with the long hours workers are facing in japan, vs the long hours workers are facing in america. the latter has only began the discussion reluctantly in the past decade while the former has been aware of the problem for quite a while even if they haven't done that much to fix it.
>>25191
i get what you mean now. i don't remember the transition feeling sudden for my taste, but i can see why parts of the story might seem a bit too sweet for the average watamote fan

 

>>25191
They're trying to get that sweet-sweet yuri fandom's mone. Ya gotta pander to the otaku to stay relevant.

 

>>25207
>zoomer progressives ruin everything

See what i mean?
You cannot go without gen pol.
As if though Millennials are any better either. They started the whole current year progressive stuff.

Just a bunch of mumbo jumbo youre spaking.

Again this is what Im talking about.
All you do is argue abstractions that have no direct bearing on you.

 

>>25216
>You cannot go without gen pol.
I was complaining about not the progressive brand of zoomers (who can be any brand of progressives) but about the zoomer brand of progressivism which got spread thanks to the rise of the parasocial media, Zoomers can be quite based, it's the zoomers who are more open to modern music genres such as modern metalcore and drift phonk, Gen X'ers are more likely to have a "GET OFF MY LAWN!!" attitude when it comes to modern music because of its sleak production or whatever.

But you're right about millenials, I'm not disagreeing. I'm a zoomer myself so I'm allowed to criticize my own cohort, am I not? It's not like I'm adultist or anything.

 

>>25216
>Just a bunch of mumbo jumbo youre spaking.
Just saying that art can be educational and rebellious and saying that it shouldn't be is arguably only limiting the creativity of a person. Muh freedom of expression.

I'm not saying that all art should provoke some DEEP THOUGHTS in your brain but there's literally nothing wrong with it and the Japs are simply being too puritan here imho. Heck, Ghost in the Shell already rises some philosophical themes already so clearly the Japs understand that, it's just that the politics are excluded because "philosophy good, politics bad" I guess.

 

>>25214
I had to explain to my therapist what a hikkikomori/neet was to him after I mentioned it during conversation. It seemed pretty revelatory to him and he was excited because now he had a term to describe some of his other patients. It's honestly kind of shocking that the phenomenon isn't more well known here, but I guess the social dynamics producing it aren't quite the same here and there.

 

>>25239
The lack of cultural dialog in our society is just terrible tbh, the most open people when it comes to cultural dialog are weebs and that's 'cause they fetishize Japan. I know I may come across as a Japanophobe but really I'm more of a misanthrope in that aspect, everyone seems to have that conservative "They're weird, I'm not going to talk to them" attitude. I myself am trying to combine the best parts of American and Asian cultures, picking and choosing the parts I enjoy in both. I watch anime, I watch cartoons, I play Japanese AAA games, I play Western indie games, it's all over the place.

>>25252
Um… May I help you?

 


 


 

What made Watamote so good that despite only ever having a single season more than a decade ago, people still talk about it?

 

>>25428
It having a single season helps alot.

Quality shows have like 3 seasons max, the less season a show has the better it is most of the time

 

She's just like me frfr

 

>>25466
holy fuck i also feel hot and sweaty during hot summer days wtf!!
