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.

What is the proper way to fix the hellscape that is Lux in Texhnolyze?
This show's conclusion still baffles me.
Organize the Lux proletariat against the Class before it's too late.
Does anyone have a Marxist or Deleuzian analysis of this. Am I going insane or is the city called Lukács, the two groups (body without)Organ and Lacan? Constant reference to The Spectacle? The Class? Everyone is losing body parts to technology? Something about will to power? There seems to be something there but I'm not quite grasping it and all I can find directly about the show are reddit teenagers saying nihilism = meaningless. https://miguelcabrera.org/2009/06/04/will-to-power-on-deleuze%C2%B4s-thought/#:~:text=To%20interpret%20will%20to%20power,drives%20are%20to%20be%20understood. > In paragraph 13 of Beyond Good and Evil (1973), he remarks that we should beware of superfluous teleological principles such as the drive to self-preservation. His own principle is more general, encompassing the drive to self-preservation but also the drive to self-destruction or self-overcoming: A living thing desires above all to vent its strength—life as such is will to power—self-preservation is only one of the indirect and most frequent consequences of it’ >Deleuze comments that ‘Nietzsche criticises Darwin for interpreting evolution and chance within evolution in an entirely reactive way. He admires Lamarck because Lamarck foretold the existence of a truly active plastic force, primary in relation to adaptations: a force of metamorphosis https://go.gale.com/ps/anonymous?id=GALE%7CA287182730&sid=googleScholar&v=2.1&it=r&linkaccess=abs&issn=15225321&p=LitRC&sw=w >Roughly forty-five years after this compelling, if heavy-handed, Marxist critique, Deleuze and Guattari appropriate a crucial concept from Worringer's life-philosophically inflected writing, namely, "inorganic life," in order to theorize the resistance to global capitalism. Through a close reading of Worringer, I pose the following critical question: How can a concept that was once condemned from a Marxist perspective as an ideologically suspect "flight from reality" later be, mutatis mutandis, celebrated as a revolutionary "line of flight"? In critically reading the concept of inorganic life in Worringer via Lukacs, I want to anticipate how exactly Deleuze and Guattari appropriate this concept, and to what end--indeed, to what dead end--they seem to do so. I do not mean to imply that Lukacsian Marxism is the "orthodox" version of Marxist thought, thereby taking Deleuze and Guattari to task with the same reductionism that Lukacs himself might have employed. Rather I aim to show how the discursive history of inorganic life implicates the intersection of Marxism and modernist aesthetics in the reading of Worringer's, Lukacs's, and Deleuze and Guattari's texts. My reading thus suggests that Deleuze and Guattari do not inherit a fixed, stable concept of inorganic life, but rather a concept that, since its "invention" by Worringer, has rhetorically figured its own instability at the expense of its claim to reality, to history. If Deleuze and Guattari mobilize such an ahistorical aesthetic concept into a Marxist project, then I question whether the vitality they attribute to inorganic life in their text does not ultimately coincide with the Worringerian deadness of a conceptual and historical impasse. https://www.lacan.com/zizsanctuary.html >Deleuze's remobilization of the old humanist- idealist topic of regressing from the "reified" result to its process of production is telltale here. Is Deleuze's oscillation between the two models (becoming as the impassive effect; becoming as the generative process) not homologous to the oscillation, in the Marxist tradition, between the two models of "reification?" First, there is the model according to which reification/fetishization misperceives properties belonging to an object insofar as this object is part of a socio-symbolic link, as its immediate "natural" properties (as if products are "in themselves" commodities); then, there is the more radical young Lukacs (et al.) notion according to which "objective" reality as such is something "reified," a fetishized outcome of some concealed subjective process of production. So, in exact parallel to Deleuze, at the first level, we should not confuse an object's social properties with its immediate natural properties (in the case of a commodity, its exchange-value with its material properties that satisfy our needs). In the same way, we should not perceive (or reduce) an immaterial virtual affect linked to a bodily cause to one of the body's material properties. Then, at the second level, we should conceive objective reality itself as the result of the social productive process - in the same way that, for Deleuze, actual being is the result of the virtual process of becoming.
>>434 Have Yoshi survive and succeed in starting a civil war, which ends with a faction winning and holding complete control over the city. In order to maintain power and prevent another war, they keep a powerful military force, which is what they will use to defend against the Class and eventually invande and settle the surface. The revitalized people of Lux replace the stagnant people of the surface (who will probably upload themselves into a virtual world or something as a response) and civilization resumes its evolution. From watching this show twice, this is what I gather Yoshi's ultimate plan was, given that he knew the conditions of the surface people, the Class and Lux. As the ending of the show stands, the robot-tree-people might or might not evolve into full cyborgs and eventually go to the surface. The blue-haired guy was crazy and seemed to have only intended to destroy everything, but then why make the robots and his own feet grow roots when the fighting was over? Maybe he really wanted throw the fate of humanity wholly to evolution, whatever evolution might look like for robots with human heads and roots.

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?

Dr. Stone discussion, could there be a way to make it better? おたく 05/13/2020 (Wed) 07:46:15 No. 922 [Reply]
Dr. Stone's premise is quite intresting but I feel it don't really uses it's premise to it's fullest. 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?

>>932 I'm talking about communist in the literal sense. Someone who wants a society without private property.
>>927 >>928 Boomersidal primitivism is just idealism.
This show would've been better if the advancements were slower because they go from being monkey tier tech wise to having phones in 24 episodes. I liked it anyway though.
>>2756 I expect them to construct a laser for something any day now.

Are there more labour or union animations similar to this? Some were aired too apparently. It's quite funny.
>>2746 I would be hard pressed to find any labour union anime, or animation in general.
This thread could be a general thread for labour animation also.

Find me a worse sequel おたく 05/13/2020 (Wed) 23:45:55 No. 883 [Reply]
Is this the worst sequel of all time?

>>883 The second season was announced a few weeks after I finished watching the first one and I was pretty excited because I loved DtB despite its flaws. But what I got was a fucking mess and the last episode aired on 24th or 25th December and it ruined my Christmas that year. The gaiden episodes were ok but they still left a bitter taste in my mouth. It took me years to get over my hatred for Bones.
>>885 How did they get away with it?
(685.77 KB 750x563 1274106884267.png)
>>886 No idea, I heard it sold well but apparently not well enough for a third season. It's either that or nobody wanted to continue because they wrote themselves into a corner. A few years ago there was a small party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the first series, people were kinda hyped for an announcement but it was basically "we can confirm we won't continue it lol". What a shame.
>>887 In retrospect I think Darker Than Black was basically the Lost of anime. When they started they had no idea how it was supposed to end and then they just pulled a bunch of mystery box stuff out of their ass.
