What the FUCK was going on at the end of this anime?
That's so weird. I was just thinking about this the otherday. I haven't seen this anime in so long, so, I can't really commentate on it all that much. Interesting to see some one posted about it, though.

Tomoko thread... why? Because I like the character... and other reasons... Post lewds (spoilered), memes, edits, pics and anything else related to the subject

>>4618 >the most obnoxious anime avatar <by far I'm sorry what? how? >every website i have seen this on it has been attached to most boring posts examples? I've seen good posts with Tomoko's and bad posts, it's not really about the Avatar, it's just that the general rule is most people on chans aren't effortposters.
>>4639 no, I mean artists who draw anime girls.
>>4641 I'm sorry I'm not sure what you mean? As in people who just draw anime lewds and not actual anime/manga?
>>4642 Mostly amateur, but there are many "professional" anime artists who can't draw for shit, too. Artists who try to draw super attractive anime girls but the hands and/or feet they draw are terrible. It's way too common.
>>4643 Oh yeah, I totally agree. A lot of it is in seasonal moe anime

So, let's be clear: Were these two living under a fascist military police state? I never noticed it when I was young, but, now that I am older and more politically aware the show sure seems to take place under; hell even glorifying the righteousness of a military police state governed by, near, fascist political power. They even call the head of the goverment "The fuiër." Am I wrong /a/?

>>4570 The author did base parts off of real incidents of imperialism. But the government did play an antagonist role which becomes more obvious.
>>4574 And the characters mostly start fighting against it, too.
>>4569 Well I mean Bradley IS called the Fuhrer. TBH I never understood the hype for this show. It had some cool moments and animation and a decent story, but if you listen to some people talk about it you'd think it was the second coming of christ. Often enough they're also HxH fags as well.
>>4596 >TBH I never understood the hype for this show. Your question is too vague but I'll try to answer it. •The characters have fun, interesting and cool personalities with enough complexity to keep the audience engage. •The setting and power system are detailed and unique enough for it to stand out from the crowd. •The series is long enough convey it story properly and doesn't overstay it's welcome. •The plot doesn't trip over itself and goes to shit. •It's dark but still hopeful. •It's "anime" but not too "anime" for a general audience making it great for beginners. There are more reasons but I made my point.It's a very well rounded series which can be enjoyed by a wide audience.
>>4615 You made excellent points with a simple explanation, thanks for clarifying

death note おたく 09/27/2020 (Sun) 20:39:44 No. 3466 [Reply]
I love death note. And I love light yagami as a character. However it was very obvious that his entire worldview is extremely... reactionary I guess? Or like darwinist? Killing criminals and not trying to fix underlying problems is obvioiusly retarded. I wonder if any normalfags were able to make this obsevation

>>4559 TBF You can like a characterization without actually saying you think the same of real life people like him.
>>4121 Can I watch these if I haven't read/watched Death Note? >>4559 >you missed the point of the show entirely. He literally said Light is retarded
>>4573 >read/watched Death note Assuming you mean the anime/manga, yes. The Netflix version of Death Note has about as much to do with Death Note as the M.Nights Avatar: The Last Airbender movie. However I do suggest reading the first 10 chapters of the manga (or episodes of the anime) before starting the reviews, if only to get some of the references E;R makes. The only good part of the Netflix series IMO is that Willem Dafoe voices Ryuuk
>>4560 true usually people's entry to 'Adult' or 'Dark' anime goes from Death Note to Evangellion and so on

>>4424 The main character turns out not to be as heroic or kind as people expected. Ever since the third episode it's 24/7 shitflinging about morality and ethics. There's also shitflinging about it being yuri vs not yuri.
>>4425 holy shit what the fuck
>>4418 I don't. I hate lazy OPs. Half the posts here only came about today because it's Friday and the thread is on pg 1
I really like it. The butthurt is causing is extremely funny to watch.

Modern and New anime. おたく 10/22/2020 (Thu) 03:04:33 No. 4336 [Reply]
I am an old fag. Today I decided to compile a playlist of all my favorite anime. I made a list including Neon Genesis, Trigun, Outlaw Star, Full Metal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, etc etc etc. After watching a few episodes I realized I am way, way behind the times. The only modern anime I have on my play list is Made in abyss. So, I come to you /a/. I come to you requesting your favorite anime picks from 2018 - 2020 and what looks upcoming for 2021. All I ask is that it be good high quality anime. I don't want something like fairy tail that's just designed to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Hook me up /a/.
Just an FYI my dude The thread for new anime is >>348 Some suggestions (mostly from 2018 to today) - Dragonball Z Abridged (the series gets better and better as it goes on and covers DBZ, ending on the Cell arc, and covers several of the movies.) - Rent-a-Grilfriend - SAO Abridged (15 episodes so far sadly) - Reborn as a Slime - Highschool DxD (4 seasons) - Alita Battle Angel movie - One Punch Man - Mars Daybreak (not post-2016, but rather obscure) - Blue Submarine No.6 (also older and also obscure) - Welcome to Demon School Iruma - Goblin Slayer - Shiiton Gakuen (Shitton Acadmy) - Overly Cautious Hero

More thicc LOLIS could improve it for the otaku masses.
>>4312 Fuck off
>>4276 Having given it some thought I have to side with the "it's anti GMT"-camp. I think we are underestimating the extent to which this show is self-conscious. Note for example how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown. However I started to notice how often, almost every time, there is always some character in the other camp who anticipates what is to come, points it out to the superiors, and is shot down. So clearly we are not dealing with uniquely genius insights. Moreover the outcome of the battles is in almost all cases over-determined by the preceding circumstances. The most obvious case being the invasion of the Empire by the FPA really on - with no clear plan beyond "we'll be greeted as liberators" their defeat was assured before the invasion started, no genius opponents needed. Another case is the noble coalition, which falters more to its own internal tensions and weaknesses (factionalism and ill discipline mostly) than to a particularly genius approach by Reinhardt and company. The characters who are portrayed as the brilliant great men, then, are so portrayed not because they are shown to be brilliant great men, but because that status is useful for other actors behind them - which is made explicit several times. Yang is initially very useful as a hero to Trunicht, while Reinhardt is the linchpin of the coalition of officers around him, threatening to fracture as soon as he suffers a breakdown for a couple of days. In his case it is Oberstein, arguably the real brains of the operation, who maintains him as figurehead. History in the show is seen to be made through larger forces that determine the outcome of things, the characters can only be the vessel for larger forces, influencing what is already slated to happen at the margins. Which fits well with Yang - the historian - 's signature move, making the best of a bad situation.

>>4276 Maybe the Narrator indulges in GMT but I can't really say the same for the author. He did (albeit very clumsy and barely) mention that Imperials vastly outnumbered the Alliance in men and technology, and also mentioned the Alliance's devastated economy in the constant. Yang was right to suggest a ceasefire or peace treaty as the only way for the Alliance to win the war against the Imperial in the long term. It is still pretty bullshit how Reinhard can turn around social welfare and the economy of the Empire in just a few years though. >>4325 >how the supposedly "brilliant" stratagems that the various characters use to win this or that battle are typically rather banal. You can put this away as lazy writing - the character is brilliant for the purpose of the story, but it is told in stead of shown Tbf most of Yang's tactics and strategies are directly copied from great maneuvers in history. IIRC His last real fight against the Empire before his assassination is literally Hannibal's Battle of Cannae in Space.
>>4325 >>4326 I mean the author seems to be imitating the style of evens of real history, which of course means that regarless of what the show contains both interpretations are going to apply, since even if unconciously, the guy is good enough of a writer to include material details that point in both directions, which i think is the fun of the show somewhat. But i think that even so, his belive in GMT bleeds through, in stuff like the backstory of the universe and the narrator. Which why i think this anime could do without that, without the objective narrator telling you what you are supposed to think about the events. Although the backstory is still interesting, i like how they presented it as a tv show in universe, like clearly that was not a real portrayal of what happened, and it is left for us to interpret what actually happened

Let's see >Guts is a low ass commoner bastard born from a corpse, meant to die, raised in a hellish world (that's literally just the same as our own before Guts encounters any actual demons) so harsh and cruel he likely has severe PTSD by the time he's 15 >Best friend Griffith is a social climbing piece of shit who has to murder and scheme to almost make it to the top, even then the ruling class tells him to go fuck himself and he has to sell his soul to the devil and murder all his friends to finally make it >The ruling class are mostly monsters; the King is a pedophile nut that tries raping his own daughter, the "nicest" nobles were wrapped up in a brutal inquisition >The whole world is ruled by an impersonal, most amoral entity created by human will but superseding all humans, controlling their lives based on it's own whims which are of course encouraged by the worst human impulses >The thing everyone worships is literally evil itself >Even the leaders of the apostles are pawns of the Market, err...."Idea of Evil" Fuck it The godhand are the bourgeoisie The apostles are the petit bourgeois Fuck yea

>>3598 Hey man, have you thought about making a YouTube channel, or a "BreadTube" channel as I like to calll them, haha? You could talk about your marxist analysis of Berserk and other Japanese cartoons a.k.a. anime, how Guts is the proletarian and Griffith is the bourgeoisie and stuff. Cool stuff.
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.
