Sakura Illustrated

Hey! I just scanned and uploaded a collection of Genpei Akasegawa's left wing political cartoons from the 1970s. You can find it here: https://archive.org/details/sakura-illustrated-collection It contains Concerned Theatre Japan's English translation of the special issue. Although I didn't realize it was already on mangadex: https://mangadex.org/title/43800/sakura-illustrated/comments/ More information about both Genpei Akasegawa's manga/illustration work as well as Concerned Theatre Japan: https://throwoutyourbooks.wordpress.com/2015/11/03/political-comics-japan-radicalism-protest-movements-manga/ https://tokyostages.wordpress.com/2014/12/21/concerned-theatre-japan/

so-bad-it's-good animu

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.

Let's talk Oregairu

Yesterday I finished watching season 3, and I haven't been able to put it out of my mind since. I don't like that, it's just a high school romantic comedy after all. Hopefully writing a few lines about it will make that go away. They really surprised my by committing to a definite conclusion. The way the story resolved, the way the love triangle resolved, was not unexpected in my opinion - what we got was what the story had been building up to, what had been telegraphed from the beginning. But given the ambiguous endings of the previous seasons and the often bittersweet conclusion to minor arcs, I didn't think they would play it completely straight in the end. Fully expected them to either leave the matter unresolved again, or end with everyone-losing-but-growing-from-the-experience. But they stuck the landing, and for all intents and purposes the story has concluded, the curtain has dropped. This too was made clear before the actual finale of course, with the repeated references to endings and conclusions in the dialogue, but that doesn't sink in until it has happened. Maybe that's what's irking me - I've gone a couple of years living with this as something that promised to be forever unresolved, and now I'm faced with abrupt closure. I didn't want it to ever be really over. Still, I have a gripe. Call it team-Yui sour grapes if you want. Story-wise, the love triangle obviously resolved as it "should" have, if it was to have any positive resolution at all. No need to go into the details of why that is, a blind man can see it. But it leaves a taste that's not just bittersweet but straight up bitter. What the story builds to is an unironic Hiki-Yukinon power couple. The culmination of their on-screen relationship consists of them coming together to do event management, which had become a bit of a repeating trope in the latter half of the series. The girlboss of the wealthy family wins, and acquires an utterly loyal and at least moderately competent future husband who will help her take over and run the family empire. We are expected to have sympathy for the rich girl; how terrible it is for her to be burdened with all these expectations and these exacting family members, and how much of a savior her future husband proves to be... Frankly I don't like it, and I don't have as much sympathy as the story would want me to. Fuck the rich and their problems. This in contrast to the loser of the equation, the normie girl from a normie family whose demand / offer for a relationship was to normalize and domesticate Hiki (expressed explicitly as a list of wishes). Now on the one hand you can take this latter option, the demand to become essentially another, more normal person, as a betrayal of the "genuine" Hiki, asking him to live a lie. Yet, more so in season one than later, it is left unclear to what extent the weirdness and creepiness is what's genuine, or if it's learned / feigned to accommodate the loner existence. Maybe the relationship that won out really was the more unhealthy and less wholesome one, setting the protagonist up for a ruinous life of plots, schemes and hard work, in stead of a healthy family life. Some scattered other observations. There was an obvious tonal and art shift after seasons one. We went from a (only marginally) romantic comedy, to a romantic drama with only occasional humorous interludes. I can't say it works perfectly, it's too noticeable for that, but it does work. Baited by the comedy, it leaves you trapped being invested in the characters once it moves to drama. Good job, show, you caught me. One thing I can't figure out, something that I've seen in other shows too. Where are all the parents? There is not a single father in the entirety of the show iirc, or any other male authority figure for that matter. The only parents we do see are the mothers for the two legs of the love triangle, appropriately contrasted: one wholesome and supportive, the other essentially antagonistic and even sinister. For the protagonist, we see neither. I would appreciate it if someone could give a deeper interpretation here, beyond the observation that it is a reflection (or god forbid normalization) of the toxic Japanese corporate culture requiring workers to stay late. If there is an essay-length look at this I would love to read it. /rant

Favorite Simpsons Episode/ Gerneral thread

Yes I know, it's an anime board. But since this board is relatively dead, how about a nice curve ball to spice it up? if worse comes to worse more the thread to /hobby/ Anyway, I just recently watched season 1 - 9 (and some one offs) and I was wondering what's your guys opinions on the show? I personally enjoyed it, with these being my top three: 1) Bart gets an F 2) Homers Enemy 3) E-I-(Annoyed Grunt) It's pretty obvious why 1 & 3 are solid, but I don't see people talk about 2 that much. Which I don't get why. Homers Enemy; Frank Grimes, is obviously the personification of the "dream American worker". The dream worker who in any dire situation will simply just "pull up his boot straps" and work harder to get a better life. The reality is though is that, no one actually cares about him going through those hardships. Yes, while Burns did originally try to hire him after seeing his struggle, he was predictably ignored after Burns found the next shiny thing to gawk at, and the hardships of Frank was quickly ignored by the rest of society. Maybe it was obvious and I'm slow, but the lesson that it taught is still a great reminder, that is: a system that abandons you to unnecessary hardships is not going to care if you actually succeeded in those hardships. This reality is hammered in further with Homer existence, one who has gotten off lucky and lived by all accounts a fairly fulfilling life. Any mess ups that Homer has cause is ignored since as long as profit is made, they don't care what he does. And his death is a great ending, Homer continues in the system with his actions since he cares not for the boss "making" his precious money, while Frank takes the approach that work is a virtue and mocks homer only to get killed accidentally when taking his mockery to the extreme. Perhaps I'm looking into it too much, or I'm viewing it backwards, what do you think /anime/ or /hobby/ if this is moved?

"Tomboy" has been robbed of its meaning.

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.

The manga/anime industry is inherently anti-art because the creators are incentivised to milk the fuck out of their series untill no one cares about them anymore - even to a more extreme degree than the Hollywood franchises and TV shows. I'm sure you could find a good story in most mangas, the problem is that it's buried under the 95% unnecessary bullshit and it lacks the proper execution because it's created under a lack of time. The deadline driven nature of comics prevents them from entering a higher level of art.

I watched the first 6 episodes of NGE

And wow, I fucking hated it to be perfectly honest. It seems like the entire show is only about Shinji's angst (and Rei increasingly I'm sure) and the characters various emotional issues, but like, okay, who cares? The situations they're thrown into are totally absurd and ridiculous so how can I take any of this drama stuff seriously? Like these kids are the last best hope of mankind and they seem to be totally unsupported by anyone? Shinji was gonna live in a totally empty tenement and it's only his superior's minor moment of reasonable judgement that means he lives with her instead (and she is clearly no kind of parent figure), and Rei lives in a dark, dingy slum dwelling made of all concrete with nobody taking care of her either? Like, their emotional reactions seems somewhat understandable but also completely dull and uninteresting because the situation they're in is absurd (and even then they both come off as pathetic and unlikeable - and no you can't say 'but that's the point!!', that doesn't make it entertaining to watch). The less said about the non-angst portions of the story the better, the 'fights' are 10 minutes of foreplay for like 60 seconds of action if that, and while that's a common problem with anime, that doesn't make it excusable. Yes this series is old and I'm sure it has inspired so much but people still recommend to watch it and it just seemed like garbage. Almost nothing is explained which means I can't possibly feel invested in this absurd world in any way. Every part of the setting seems to have been created with 'style over substance' in mind, urgh, just overall I found it absurd. Try not to give too much spoilers because I guess I might still try watch it, but I really don't see it redeeming itself. Though for context I also hated 'The Godfather' and 'No Country For Old Men' and thought they were pretentious overlong shit, so maybe I'm just a contrarian.

Finally watched Kino no Tabi after a years-old recc, and I'm curious what the broader analysis on it is, and where we figure it stands. I found the 2003 series was pretty left on a few topics, specifically how many countries provide an allegory for the flawed and ideological way people perceive work and its purpose. However I've been seeing a few wrinkles to that. I can't help but notice all the times in Kino no Tabi that a revolution against a king is exactly what causes a country to fail (not all but most, and most successful revolutions have the monarch secretly still hanging around,) begging the question of whether the show/books is ultimately projecting a Burkean outlook on the world. This is compounded by how much emphasis is placed on the individual, though this is somewhat inevitable considering it focuses on a solitary wandering protagonist. However that emphasis on personal responsibility could be easily reframed in a negative way; it would be easy for some right-winger to interpret "country of radio waves" in the 2017 anime, where random murders are blamed on a radio tower that turns out to no longer exist, so that the any sort of institutional critique explaining crime could be imposed metaphorically on the tower, reducing societal dysfunction to purely individual choices. I know that since there have been Kino stories for 20 years, most of what I've said may well be overturned in another tale--but do my my critiques stick? What do YOU make of Kino no Tabi? Also: Kino's 2003 hat is superior to the 2017 hat.

Why is there no anime about the Mexican revolution!?

I mean, just imagine that shit. You have a cast of unique and unforgettable characters with their own unique personalities. >Emiliano Zapata >Pancho Villa >Porfirio Diaz >Felix Diaz >Victoriano Huerta >Madero >Obregon >Carannza >Reyes >Orozco >The US Ambassador who orchestrated the Ten Tragic days >countless more generals and noteworthy people You have several phases of the revolution which are all characterized by insane betrayals and twists that can be turned into their own story arcs and seasons >Don Diaz v. Madero, Orozco, Villa, Zapata >Madero v. Reyes, Felix Diaz, Orozco, Villa, Zapata >The coup of Madero by Reyes and Felix Diaz with Huerta betraying Madero and taking over forcing a Huerta v. Carranza, Villa, Zapata >Huerta defeat causes Villa and Zapata to fight with Diaz and Blanquet against Carranza >Victorious Carranza v. his old friend Obregon and Zapata who is assassinated culminating in an overall victory for Obregon who is then killed after his presidency The Mexican Revolution is the perfect premise for an anime. It has literally everything a creator could want. Action, drama, the potential for effective allegory and metaphor, sick characters, beautiful and varied settings, politics, war, every social and economic stratum is relevant and can be explored, the story is already laid out for writers to play around with, etc etc etc. I think, if it were to be made, Zapata should be the main protagonist since he's probably the most interesting being the principled underdog freedom fighter who was the only one actually fighting for substantial revolutionary change. That being said, it shouldn't exclusively be from his perspective. It should be one of those shows that dedicate large chunks of time to focusing on other main or secondary characters so we can really understand every side of the conflict, allowing twists and betrayals to hit harder. It'd need to be really long-form cause the revolution was like 10 years long and some pretext would be needed prior to the revolution since it's important to understand the role Don Diaz played in creating the conditions for the revolution to start. To me this seems like the perfect show idea and idk why no one has bothered making it yet. Japs need to get a studio on this shit asap. If not the Japs, burgers can pull an Avatar the Last Airbender or Castlevania type beat and just make it themselves.

I'm calling Asushin victory in the next Evangelion. I'm basing this a process of elimination and the ending of EoE. Kaworu is dead, Rei will be used in the instrumentality and Mari doesn't fit the ending thematically. Since the instrumentality will be started with 01 and Asuka lacks her Evangelion it's safe to assume she'll be in the middle of it. Barring Anno dropping a brick on her head she'll be the last one standing with a confesion. Tic toc Mariasufags, tic toc.

Then there's the convenient powers the main couple exhibit to solve the big issue at the end. Trigger hasn't been good since it was called Gainax, huh.

>The average persons eye captures “around” 60 frames per second (fps). While on this drug the fps of a persons eye is significantly lowered. It's been known that some shows, particularly anime, will have images or video superimposed into the show that flash in these lower frequency's, so that those who have this drug in their systems will see them, while sober people won't... Yep. Seriously. >Whippets are entirely legal to purchase and own in the US, as well as in most other countries, including Japan.

Catharsis in Anime & Manga

Have you ever noticed that a large portion of anime and manga expresses the desire to escape from the monotony of late capitalism in Japan? There's a prevalence of scenarios in seinen (young adult / 20-50s~) media which protagonists are taken in by loving females. As well as a bulk of romcoms to support Japan's large population of "herbivore males" (men uninterested in relationships.) Anime was a different medium during the Japanese economic boom, then shifted into a much more niche market in correlation to Japan's long economic recession. I would argue there's a continuity in the fanbase in spite of anime's reorientation. It's simply that the demographic which supports has gone through a visible degeneration as the economy has degenerated. I would make no fault of "otakus" for being the way they are and the media they eat up, but rather the stifling corporate climate. Japan is perhaps worse than the US than in working conditions.

Kamiinai/ Sunday Without God

Does anyone know how the light novels ended? I really liked how the anime started, (and this scene was amazing.) I just lost interest after the main character's father died and they had to invent a bunch of random new arcs with throwaway characters while she traveled the planet. They should've kept the zombie dad instead of killing him since he actually had some character development in the first 3 episodes, unlike the moe characters they added later. Did they at least ever explain why God abandoned the Earth, and the origin of the girls who buried the corpses?

I mean Tsukasa's plan to destroy all of the adults and to try to "Stop Science from existing" is doomed to fail, not to mention his conclusions are entirely based on the notions of "Human Nature" and "Adults being greedy". Is there any way to make the anime or even it's premise better?

But I didn't like the drama or action when she was seemingly permanently trapped as a cat and had to visit the cat city. It was too cartoony and the ending wasn't as satisfying as it could have been, and felt rushed. You didn't even get good romance at the ending.

there's a huge age gap in /a/

before you read this, can we all agree toonami was what made anime mainstream in america? ok? So like the subject says there is a clear age gap in the anime/manga community. It's split into two of the most soy filled baby generations y and z. For people around my age(late 90sfetuses) We grew up in the tail end of toonami. Basically the era of Naruto and One Piece, this explains why Naruto and One Piece is more consumed by zoomers while the previous gen grew up with dbz and pokemon and maybe sailor moon. Folks around my age mainly grew up with NAruto on CN one piece had a pretty shitty first impression and it didn't last that long on CN anyways so this is why Naruto is more liked with zoomers. Anyways there's this new gen of anime fags that don't know nothing about Naruto and one piece. There are literally fetuses lurking the internet who where babies when attack on titan came out. I propose we should name this generation of /a/ fags gen 3
