Have any of you guys ever seen this? What did you think with its messages related to democracy / authoritarianism and such?

Would it kill you to put LOTGH or Legend of the Galactic Heroes in the OP so that the thread doesn't vanish if it goes below Page 1?

I think its view of history is warped, or at least it appears so. The relationship of the characters with their environment and the impact they have thereon seems to suggest that the show supports "great man theory". Some bloggers have written about that: Pro: https://medium.com/@ProjectRob/the-conservative-heart-of-legend-of-the-galactic-heroes-8d3d41d128fa Con: https://desperatetimes914496456.wordpress.com/2020/02/21/legend-of-the-galactic-heroes-too-critical-for-its-critics/ I find the notion that it supports GMT more believable; it is shoved in the viewer's face in moments like when Schoenkopf says that he wants to save Yang because "history would be boring without him", which implies that history wouldn't be moving if Yang was dead. Although it isn't necessarily related, the fact that what appears to be a semi-feudal autocracy had coexisted with a bourgeois democracy for ~150 years is telling - it suggests that governments, economic structures, and culture are alien to the material conditions that exist and the level of technology & science. This is obviously anti-marxist.
>>4276 That's ironic considering that LOGH was inspired in part by Romance of the Three Kingdoms and it is stated at one point in Three Kingdoms that heroes only arise during times of chaos. One of the characters even laments that in a peaceful age he would be nothing more than a mid level bureaucrat.
>>4276 The Narration supports great man theory, one of the spiels the narrator tells you like 4 times says "history is the collection of the actions of great men", that's why the show is named that, the title itself is a play on this. However the claim that it supports it and it is reactionary are two different ones, the guy in the other article is right. Mainly, in that the show does seem to imply that history as told by the narrator is warped, and that Reinhard is not necessarily a conservative. mostly, it seems the actual ideology of the show is somewhere between liberal and dengeist (a progressive figure that abolishes the aristocracy makes economic reform, and creates a progressive authoritarian regime in a Japanese show just reeks of dengeist to me). What I think would be more interesting to think about is this, if the show implies the narrator is telling you his version, then from that version, what would be the actual story of the world? Now that's a real story worthy of being written
>>4289 On that topic, some of the most prominent protagonist characters in RoTK lose the war in the end, and there's even one that gets killed off by his artisans after he works them too hard.

>>4285 I get that most adaptations are shit but they really did this series dirty.
>>4286 They can't help it... for the monies
>>4279 So close yet so far.
>>4279 From the 1% of isekai that are decent most of them could get rid of the isekai aspect and nothing would change.
>>4301 Wrong. In 90% of garbage Isekai anime, removing the Isekai portion would do little to change the plot, while in the best Isekai, it is inherently required and cannot be simply replaced with a set-up beginning motivation a la the start of Bleach. The point of an Isekai is that a character is displaced from their own world and thus their interactions with the new world differ to the native inhabitants. It creates an interesting diversion from the path of the world. Even Subaru, weakass that he is, changes the path of his world with relatively simple changes. If there are no stakes or important changes we lose the point of the entire Isekai, and it becomes a bland power-fantasy. Bland power fantasies can be fun escapism, but in the longrun are tiresome. SAO abridged for example, does something interesting. While the world is digital and essentially fake, the characters themselves are important and their displaced situation. Kirito, who is a loser IRL, gets to be his 'dream self' in the game, but the reality is that no-matter how many swordskills he has, his social skills and understanding had to change for things to matter. He had a long and varied character arc of him reaching conclusions or almost getting it, only to have it taken away again and again until he finally reached it in a climactic battle. he then continued developing this newly found conclusion, on slow burn and realistic takes of teenage drama (played humorously). By the final battle, he put aside his own desire to remain awesome in the game and freed SAO's players from the game and it's fake life. The original SAO never quite gets this unfortunately. >>4300 >saging this is getting boring

Next season anime watchlist おたく 06/29/2020 (Mon) 22:21:04 No. 348 [Reply] [Last]
What is on your watchlist? Definitely going to watch: >Re zero season 2 Interested: >Deca-Dence <Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll. Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat. >Monster musume no oishasan <In the town of Lindworm where monsters and humans coexist, Dr. Glenn runs an exemplary medical clinic for monster girls with his lamia assistant, Sapphee. Whether receiving a marriage proposal by a centaur injured in battle, palpating the injury of a mermaid, or suturing the delicate wounds of a flesh golem, Dr. Glenn performs his job with grace and confidence. But when an unsavory character seeks to steal a harpy egg, how will the unflappable Dr. Glenn respond...? Also >Lindworm AAAAAHHAHA >Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e >After 2000 years has passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “inept”!? Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future. However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers. >Nihon Chinbotsu 2020 <Shortly after the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, a major earthquake hits Japan. Amidst the chaos, siblings Ayumu and Gou of the Mutou household, begin to escape the city with their family of four. The sinking Japanese archipelagos, however, relentlessly pursue the family. Plunged into extreme conditions, life and death, and the choice of meeting and parting—in the face of dreadful reality, the Mutou siblings believe in the future and acquire the strength to survive with utmost effort.

Ну, об Алисе не “как обычно”… В SAO, с развитием сюжета, растёт и количество героинь, но структура истории не даёт протагонисту Кирито-ши отыскать чёткий ответ.

Is there a character that could even possibly EVEN TOUCH Madara Uchiha? Let alone defeat him. And I'm not talking about Edo Tensei Uchiha Madara.

Dissecting this shit article because I'm bored https://www.cbr.com/naruto-chunin-exams-no-sense-trivia/ https://archive.is/vn6Jv >1 <doesn't make sense in Naruto as the Hokage is the one who chooses which ninja take what missions The Hokage has final say however the point is A) show off the potential of the newest generation of Shinobi of X-village as well as the teaching skill of predecessors B) richer customers may make specific requests, such as Asuma being part of the 12 Guardian Ninja >2 <non-consecutive exams removed The referred to round was the preliminary round which was unplanned for. They did it because the finals would already be a long event and they needed to eliminate excess candidates, SUCH AS those who made it through the Forest of Death through luck, riding the coat-tails of their team or on the barest of margins. >3 <give the ninja who wins the trial overall a guaranteed spot as a Chūnin. Wrong. If that were the case then any ninja with brute force can be chunnin... except that's idiotic. Shikamaru became one because of his balanced abilities in combat skills, strategy and level-headedness (outsmarting his enemies and giving up when he was essentially done for to quit wasting time in later rounds of the finals). Everyone else fought well but in terms of technical skill displayed very little. Naruto was hot-headed and Neji caught up in his hubris. Gaara was a total psycho and Sasuke was focused on revenge and power even before the Curse Seal. Rock Lee, was brave and powerful but didn't know when to stop, resulting in him getting cripplingly hurt by an opponent with no mercy (pre talk-no-jutsu Gaara). Participation medals are not an option in a society of literal child-soldiers. >4 <Tenten beat offscreen

(75.84 KB 1280x720 Disqualified Naruto.jpg)
I remember watching The Chunin Exam OVA from the Blood Prison movie and being mad AF that Naruto was disqualified for a bullshit rule. FFS he didn't even FIGHT with sage-mode, he just entered it after Konohamaru landed a solid set of hits. https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5ycxcd It really ruined the filler for me, TBH, cause I like original animation of Naruto, just for the fun value. FFS Kakashi makes jounin as a kid before completing his chidori. And yet Naruto is still a genin after defeating enemies that the hokage should have taken care of. That is some serious bias against him. "Not fair." I always laughed at that stupid filler. They are fucking Ninja. Come on. Will an enemy not use sage power against his enemy because it's not fair? Shouldn't Ninja do anything in order to get an advantage over an enemy? If they are going to nerf Naruto in the chu in exams, then that means they are well aware of his power. Why not just give the dude a field promotion if you're just going to nerf him for the laughably stupid excuse of "not fair"? A fic that really takes the piss out of this is https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9913124/1/Rage-to-Chunin the points made are summarized as; 1) Why nerf sage mode but allow the use of Kekkei Genkai? 2) Weren't there fucking adults/old teens in Naruto's first chunin exams? Look at the scene before the written exam. A lot of those guys look like they are older than shippuden Naruto. And I don't think they were fucking nerfed. 3) Why place a genin on a Kage retrieval mission? and a S-rank hunt of rogue ninja (Gaara, Kakuz & Hidan, Itachi). 4) Helped Take out Kakazu, Pain and got a lot of people that we're killed in Konoha revived. He basically helped revive a shit ton of Konoha's ninjas back to life. Another fic that does the premise of a Shippuden Naruto Chunin exam is World's Greatest Chunin Exam Team: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanFic/TheWorldsGreatestChuninExamTeam Naruto really should have been promoted in the first Chunin Exams, or after the Pain fight. He showed great strategy and leadership skills. If not after first two events then at the very least after the War. I'm still lowkey upset that Naruto never had a Genin team. Would've been a great way to create 3 new, super powerful characters, but instead it just feels like wasted potential. The haha, super-strong eternal genin joke got turned into something annoying.
The newest Boruto chapter (51) is hype as fuck with Naruto's new suicide jutsu/chakra form It's really awesome, but at the same time I'm pissed off because it makes Sauce and Naruto so fucking weak beyond measure. Where is the epic planetary scale dimension hopping struggle like with Kaguya. Obito, Sakura and Kakashi didn't fight for the most part, so it was Sasuke and Naruto against Kaguya whose techniques they beat time an again, even temporarily holding her back while using powers they'd only recently acquired (Rinnegan, SPSM etc.). Naruto shouldn't NEED a suicide technique for an opponent whose chakra absorption is the only reason he isn't a smear on the ground. Fuck, even early Shippuden didn't nerf Naruto this much. People keep saying Naruto as a show wasted potential and that's true, but frankly the true wasted potential is Boruto, because Naruto at least had way more redeeming qualities than it did problems, even with the 4th War insanity Boruto has been good idea after good idea crushed under idiocy one after another.
It's like I'm really on /v/!

Since it wasn't reposted yet
It definitely seems overtly Neitzchean to me but I'm lost as to how you would could it marxist without sounding like a dumbass. The show never really makes much of class conflict in any meaningfull capacity, it's mostly just set in a shitty and unforgiving world. Hell, if anything the politics of the world that Berserk is set in are machiavellian. That suits the world better too imo, needs society to continue on being harsh. Honestly the main character would laugh in your face for trying to make the story about your own preconceptions of the world.
