Itasha appreciation thread おたく 07/28/2020 (Tue) 04:08:16 No. 2081 [Reply] [Last]
It's funny I found this picture, because I was also thinking of plastering Shana on my car too. Too bad it costs at least a couple of thousand of dollars. https://soranews24.com/2013/12/19/perhaps-japans-most-painfully-nerdy-itahsha-car-yet/ I'm browsing Pixiv for Shana pictures right now. I'm guessing I wouldn't get in trouble if I paid someone to print out an illustration I don't own and paid someone to put it on my car, because the US isn't Japan.

I want to do this to my next vehicle. It might be a waste of money, but I want to trigger the asshole conservatives where I live.

>>2798 >>2820 The author of Spice and Wolf covers more modern finance and stuff in World End Economica. I only read part one several years ago so I don't know/remember how in depth it actually gets. Maybe pirate a copy if you are interested.

>>2839 First one is just generic stock market fantasies with the kind of too real ending you only get in literature the porky who was helping the MC was just taking advantage of him so he could repossess the community refuge he was living in and his dreams of the stock market were shown as temporarily embarrassed millionaire delusions Second is just about companies generally lying as part of speculation Third is the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis on the moon and is a deepdive into the causes and politics of it culminating them moving the moon into being succdem instead of borderline ancap. Third is easily the best and also really indepth although may not be of interest if you already know a lot about the mechanics of that particular crisis.
>>2859 That actually sounds really good. I was assumed it was something a bit more libertarian.

Why do people on the "Left" tar anime as being nationalist when most American movies and almost all capeshit is much more nationalist than most anime.

"Tomboy" has been robbed of its meaning. おたく 09/07/2020 (Mon) 11:08:56 No. 2731 [Reply] [Last]
When I was a wee lad I read Katawa Shoujo and ended up really liking Emi. She hit all the right spots for me personality wise. I finished her route with the impression that she was supposed to be the token tomboy among the main girls. To my astonishment, when I went on the Katawa Shoujo forum I found out that other people did not consider her a tomboy. How? She's the athletic, bold, energetic girl who likes to play rough. Did I not just describe a tomboy? Is it because she doesn't "look" like a tomboy? Ridiculous. It was as if at some point I had been transported to bizarro world where the word tomboy had been hijacked by pathetic fetishists who now tied the word tomboy to physical appearance. As the years went by I found myself highly attracted to 2D girls with varying types of what are culturally seen as masculine qualities. Like the aforementioned athletic, bold, energetic, likes to play rough but also aggressive, assertive, emotionally reserved, brash, vulgar, messy, short-tempered, rhetorical, analytical, philosophical, gluttonous, as lustful as a man and so on. In other words, women who behave like the worst and best of male cultural stereotypes. Do they "look" like tomboys? Some do. But even then I have nothing in common with the pathetic fetishists, the most egregious and possibly loudest of which circlejerk over 2D girls who only "look" like tomboys and otherwise do not deviate much from the assumed average girl who on top of that unironically fantasize about turning said "tomboy" into a traditional 1950s cooking, breeding and raising servant (read: wife). Don't believe me? Give a definition for the word tomboy. Then objectively think of all the fictional girls who come to your mind that fit that definition. How many have you never thought of as tomboys? It's not just the word tomboy that is being systematically destroyed by pathetic fetishists. The word gyaru did not simply refer to physical appearance alone, but a whole subculture. To be a gyaru it's not enough to dress the part, you also have to act the part else you're a poser right? That's how subcultures work. Gals are stereotypically vain, airheaded, trendy, extroverted, socially intelligent, gold diggers, Americaboos and so on. Today? Shy gyaru. Awkward gyaru. Recluse gyaru. Tomboy gyaru. Normal girl gyaru. Otaku gyaru. Of course a character turning out to be different from expectation is funny on the occasion, but when every gyaru is effectively a poser gyaru that's when you start getting mad. Hell, I've seen people start calling characters "gyaru" for simply having a shallow physical resemblance to gals (makeup, dark skin, blonde or pink hair, etc.) which is the very height of this fetish madness. As the capitalist world crumbles, as escapism rapidly turns into fetishism, as words become nothing more than visual pornographic descriptors, voices like mine will remain to scream and shout at the dying light.

>>2933 >Shirase Sakuya tomboy Huh... I tried that and its true sorta. The only character listed as tomboy on TVTropes was Juri Saijo

>>2944 No, go back to the Yuri thread you horny bitch
>>2731 Excellent effortpost, we should strive to make all character more than cardboard cutouts of the trope they represent.
>>2944 I imagine if she was a character in a shoujo yuri romance she would be the assertive reverse trap with a prince-like charm. >>2937 See, she counts as a tomboy but Shirase doesn't? Is it literally because one has short hair and the other doesn't like in the OP? That's insultingly superficial.

so-bad-it's-good animu おたく 09/02/2020 (Wed) 02:52:39 No. 2623 [Reply] [Last]
How much of this actually exists? Annie-may that's so embarrassingly incompetent that you can actually sit through and laugh at ironically, like a hilariously bad movie? It's normally a lot harder to do because every bit of animation has thought and effort put into it, so it just comes off as intolerably bad when it's bad. Unlike an incompetent movie, which is much easier for someone with a handheld camera to half-ass their way through to a finished product. Pic related, Psychic Wars is fucking terrible.

I didn't get why people loved this anime so much. There was no real tension to it because Tanya just won everything she faced and she wasn't even likeable so it wasn't cathartic, it was just boring.
>>2497 Because blood, gore action and edgy MC appeal to Western audiences and Japanese.
Can the LN author sue the Movie makers for defamation of his work?
>>817 proof needed
>>2844 Just read the LNs. I'm sure they are all on nyaa.

>>2064 why is the perpetually pissed raven-haired girl always the best girl?
>>2284 She barely fit with the gyaru theme there
>>2283 Yes. At least that mangaka got advance warning of the magazine it was serialized in dying, so a (rushed, but that's not so bad for a joke manga) ending was written. Other obscure manga I can think of weren't so lucky, like Dungeon Nursery.

>>2804 >>2805 See >>2835 Also, sneed.
>>2804 "Self-insert" is so muddled. I've seen it used to mean a certain character archetype itself, the act of literally imagining oneself in the story for wish fulfillment, relating to characters in any way... Anyway, I'm sure you don't mean to say "don't identify with characters within whom you see an element of yourself", which is actually autistic and contrary to 'how' 'humans' 'respond' 'to' 'fiction' dating all the way back to at least Aristotle. Certainly you must mean "don't have a psychotic break when you identify less with a character over the course of a story", which is... trivial.

Is this series just going to be an endless procession of carnage or is the plot actually going to arrive at something satisfying and meaningful some day?
1 post omitted.
Also the SERIES is prob one of the best in the world
>>346 Do we even know what he really wants?
>>345 This is one of the first anime I watched when it aired and I regularly rewatch it even though I keep telling myself its just edgy stuff for normies. It has a charm that I haven't really found in other anime. I't's also interesting because it kinda switches genres regularly. Going from soldiers fighting monsters to political coups to wide-scale wars.
Hange is insanely hot.
