What are some good communist anime?

How is it communist?

Watch the original gundam anime. Cool mecha riding kids murder space nazis.

Gundam is space liberalism, but it is still pretty cool.

I agree but it's probably as "communist" as the cute girls show from the op. It's also antiwar at least.

Yes, Anime is inherently bourgeois and consumerist,. After all, it is a by product of the US nuking Japan.

Fuck Anime and Japanese Porkies.
>>96641
>Anime after all, it is a by-product of the US nuking Japan.

can you elaborate ?
>>96641
Imagine thinking anything is "inherently" anything else. Anime developing out of a specific context does not mean that it is, intrinsically, such and such or so and so.

By this logic literally anything you consume in your day to day life under capitalism is "inherently bourgeois." Simply for the fact that you are consuming it under capitalism.

If someone got ball to pull out communist revolution all those stupid tragedies will end. If there is enough space colony at least space juche can be real.
Planetes

Ponpoko, Takahata films generally
Speed Grapher is very leftist. Ghost in the Shell, Jin-Roh, Patlabor, and pretty much everything Mamoru Oshii has worked on has leftist themes even if they feel pretty hopeless. There isn't really much I would say is explicitly communist, but most of the best anime directors were involved in leftist orgs to some degree back during the student protests. You can find some of them expressing communist sympathies even if they reject it in favor of reformism. I'd recommend asking /leftyweebpol/ people as they talked/talk about this stuff on their board and discord server.
>>96661
Gradually the later iterations of zeon became more about space independence rather than just being space fascists which is neat even tho the leaders always ended up going "lol war crimes" at some point.
In CCA char is supposed to be big daddy space stalin except that he goes full retard and tries to drop a meteor on earth.
https://youtu.be/wkcRVwKenUU
In Unicorn (which is a very very bad show) I remember not char wanted to set up an economic trade and support pact between the colonies and this was bad and had to be stopped because reasons. Literally the most idealist show ever made.
Overall I see gundam as a setting where Marxism simply doesn't exist. Kind of like logh.

This, really. There are a lot of powerfully written liberal/antifash anime, like Rurouni Kenshin and Fullmetal Alchemist, lowkey critical stories from inside the security state like
>Ghost in the Shell, Jin-Roh, Patlabor
and even the deeply introspective critique of modern consensus on statecraft that is LoGH.

But nothing I'm aware of actually tackles capitalism directly, nor that holds a primarily class-based analysis of civilizational conflict and crisis.

More just anodyne anticolonialism than socialism.

>Around the end of the 1980s and the beginning of the 1990s, Miyazaki came to the conclusion that Marxism (and Historical Materialism) is wrong, and he totally forsook it. He said that his realization had more to do with writing Nausicaä than the collapse of the communist bloc. (As Russians continue, "And if you still believe in Communism by the time you are 30, then you have no brain.") You can clearly see how this turnabout affected him in how he ended the manga Nausicaä.

>Around the fall of the Soviet Union Miyazaki stopped considering himself a Marxist. According to himself it was because he had come to the conclusion that workers aren't always the good guys, an opinion that few Marxists certainly wouldn't have any problem agreeing with.

>In an interview from 2008 in Studio Ghibli's own magazine Neppu Miyazaki still voices a more or less Marxist analysis of capitalism. What he seems to have lost belief in are the possibilities of socialism. His view on mankind is too pessimistic to allow for such a conviction. The democratic socialism he may possibly believe in is small-scale and local. As with William Morris his resistance against industrial civilisation lies in the tension between green conservatism and a Marxist trust in the possibilities of collective non-alienating labour.

>The essayist Margaret Talbot has called Miyazaki a case-in-point example of Gramsci's adage of "pessimism of the intellect and optimism of the will". Despite a deep distrust of humankind's ability to live in peace and balance with nature he continues to make films that present optimism and belief in the future.
>In an interview in Neppu he speaks of his memories from his time as a young union activist:
"I consider us to have the right to revolt. To speak about my own experiences, I was very involved with the unions during the 1960's. I don't mean to say that our activism was right or wrong. But it was better to do something than not doing anything. Revolutions should be made everywhere."

Isn't a common theme of Ghibli movies that nature is inherently good and in harmony if not screwed with by humans? That's a very un-Marxist sentiment.

The Leader was disappointing for several reasons. It lacked visual coherence with jarring changes between cel-shaded 3D and 2D stuff. They should have made a decision what to in which way, e.g. always do the faces in 2D. Europe looked too pretty and not nearly as dirty as it was back then. I agree with you that the subject is dry. Who wants to see a show about a guy who is constantly reading and writing? I think the only way to make a good Marx animé is to have episodes of basically self-contained stories, each with different protagonists, and Marx is a side character in each.
>>97514
Honestly mad there hasnt been an adaption of Marx’s life where he sold all his pants for rent money, calls people jewish niggers, and penning vitriolic screeds.

tbh you can't talk about who's worse without bringing up how the dynamics change after the original show.

In the original gundam the feds are a flawed but mostly ok liberal democracy while zeon were some idealist ideology that got turned into a space empire by opportunists which THEN got turned into space nazis all in the span of one show.

In Zeta the feds have been effectively taken over by a fascist coup who treats the space colonies like Israel treats Palestine. The good guys are part of a group called the Anti Eath Union Group.
And I don't remember double zeta's motivations.

I have seen a vocal minority in the fandom that actually advocates that the colony drop was right, whole war was justified and pretend that Nazi parallels don't exist.

>>97665
Gundam (at least what Tomino made) is the ultimate "Shut up boomer"/" pure ideology, " tract in anime form. Point was adults and their myopic greed is ruining the future for the next generation while MIC like Anaheim keep making profit. If one is engaging in equivalent of waifufaggotry but toward a fictional political faction then they have completely missed the point. I would not be surprised if it is later revealed that there were Alt-nut among Zeekfags, just like the whole Right Wing Death Squad meme taken from Jin-Roh

Fang of the sun Dougram is about a guerilla war against colonizers.
It is 75 episodes long and has good chunk of fillers, but time to time it touches the issue of running an armed struggle, an effective organization to make sure things are running smoothly, political and economic sovereignty and danger of sabotages by traitors and opportunists.
>>97715

What asinine shit.
Women are just as capable of being lulled into escapism through cute characters.
Paranoia Agent did a better job at analyzing capitalism with a cute character than any moe anime has. It’s not impossible, but this mental gymnastics aint it.

Patlabor 2 was a boring movie with a logically and thematically broken dumpster fire of a premise that clumsily marginalized and distorted the Patlabor cast in favor of Oshii's forced in original characters, also presaging the disastrous 3rd "Patlabor" movie. Especially disappointing considering what a perfect example the first Patlabor movie was of the right way to do a theatrical film for a TV anime and Patlabor 1's environmentalist/anticonsumerist political themes tying in far tighter to the franchise's own background themes

The only saving grace of Patlabor 2 (aside from its amazingly beautiful, if infrequent, animation) is its being the third of at least three times this story was tried and failed, including the Patlabor OVA two-parter SV2's Longest Day, and the Appleseed OVA, until GiTS:SAC:2G finally perfected it.

GiTS:SAC:2G pulled off the trick of neatly wrapping an existing cast of characters, all in-character, alongside new characters that have coherent sensible motivations for their schemes, with solid political and philosophical themes, and well integrated action sequences.

You do know he worked on the series from its creation right?
One Piece has an overarching plot against a government entity that stands above everything else. It's surprisingly lefty for a comic magazine for teens.
Most anime has liberal view of democratic struggle, and older ones sometimes anti-imperialist (or anti-american), but this has anime recommendations: https://libcom.org/blog/2d-revolution-01092018

There is also The Leader, Marx anime by Chinese, which other already posted, but there is several other Maoist Chinese cartoons available streaming, though they don't have a lot of explicit Marxism, compare to national lib or Maoists.

In UC Gundam the main character has a conversation with his captor about how the Earth/Colony war was basically Earth buying time, because its hegemony was dependent on its abundance of readily available resources and accumulated wealth, when as the colonies developed would leave Earth in the dust because the colonies have access to the resources of the entire solar system and were progressing materially past the flying trash cans full of poor people that they started out as. A surprising bit of materialist analysis in my big robot space opera.

Also, Digimon Adventure is surprisingly good from an anarchist perspective. It's probably unintentional and just a side effect of writing that kind of adventure story, but everyone who wields political or economic power is either incompetent or an outright villain.

the only way Zeon is Nazi at all is solely through asthetic. The Earth Federation was neglecting the needs of the citizens of the sides so the spacenoids took it into their own hands. The most "nazi" thing that Zeon ever did was Gihren's belief that spacenoids were superior, which was only because of their abilities as newtypes, who were actively oppressed by the Earth Federation following the end of the One Year War. Fuck the Federation, Sieg Zeon.

It really says something about Japanese culture that whenever a character suggests that the world shouldn't be run through rigid hierarchies, or voices even the slightest hint of non-nationalist gekokujou ideology, they are always depicted as misguided at best and deranged and dangerous at worst. Right after this scene, the MC does a short speech about how they should work hard to win the competition even though they are weak and lack magic, and the guy goes "oh wow, you're right! We shouldn't try to change the world, let's just do our best and work within the system!" Bootstrapism isn't an American phenomena.
>>5368 Yeah, this is something that pisses me off. Manga and anime aimed at teenagers should be idealist, at least a little bit, but nope: it's always "gotta find my place in society, no matter how fucked up it is". If you're in high school and you've already given up on improving society in the most succdem of manners, you're a tool. Kill la Kill was revolutionary because it showed how "working within the system" makes you the most ferocious defender of the status quo.

I have heard there is a Chinese made animation of Karl Marx's biography , but I have had no success chasing it down beyond the intro.
>>6009 That's The Leader, already discussed ITT. It's a bit unusual in that you see a lot of young Marx, since most representations are old Marx. The show got review-bombed on some Chinese website and I thought it was just ideologically motivated attacks, but after watching I have to say it really doesn't have much going for it. (Outro song is banging though.) Anything in German is totally screwed up. There's a scene where you see Marx writing Capital with weird numbers in pointy brackets. These are actually the page numbers as they appear in a HTML version. These tiny pointy things are no big deal by themselves, but their appearance is representative of the depth of understanding of the subject material and amount of care that went into the show. (Other viewers didn't like the body language and found it too Asian, though I have to say: Were you in Europe back in those day, hmmm? So maybe that wasn't off.) It also got issues with pacing.
>>6009 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0T0a_jXHiDo all the episodes with subs are on this channel. its actually not the worst, just kind of bland, feels like a PBS special. i've seen it and don't regret it.
>>6014 also its like a very sterile portrayl of marx and marxism obviously. no whoring around, no alcoholism, no jewniggers
>>6014 Do the creators bring up the speculation of have Marx ever met Stirner? Or why EVERY female in Marx's family had the name Jenny?

>>6123 Yeah, pretty much. There is also Kakin, which contrary to pic related still seems to be de facto ruled by a king, has a caste system and a battle royal death match for deciding who will be the successor of the king. >>2225 As you see, in the manga absolute monarchy (both de jure and de facto) is associated with socialism which means that it has nothing to do with movements intending to establish a classless society. Also the narrator concludes the Chimera Ant arc with saying that inequality and war is hoomen naychure.
whenever i watch anime it seems like half the problems the characters face wouldn't even exist if people had any resemblance of class consciousness. anyone else notice this?
>>6302 You could say that about most things in modern life. Do remember, though, that Japan might just be the most classcucked of all countries on earth. Even America, UK, Nordic nations, etc. have more revolutionary sentiments than Japan. Remember that perhaps the most significant event in Japanese history was when the Emperor re-took his thrown, not the other way around. I have also yet to see any truly revolutionary actions of organized labour or political activism in recent years nor do I know any Japanese figures, thinkers or philosophers that hold Marxist, Socialist, Anarchist or Communist views. It's shockingly bland.
>>6302 Half the problems in anime and manga are caused by misunderstandings and difficulty of properly expressing yourself, the other half by the lack of class consciousness. I guess it's too late for an anime adaptation of kani kousen.

>>6460 >as if his work could have existed without the war That's the conceit, mate. It's the friction between the ideal and the reality of the war that drives the conflict. It ends in a lamentation and acknowledgement of that. The issue isn't that Japan lost, but rather that technology that could take man to the skies was used for war. To conclude otherwise is just ignoring the context of the film.

>>7394 It has some leftist themes but don't expect too much. It's still a good anime though. It has a nuanced critique of the Japanese school system, but I'm not sure how many people outside of Japan understood it.
