My main issue with anime is that characters are poorly written. Writers lean on melancholy to create a semblance of ‘depth’, character behavior is strange, and inconsistent, and reactions to events are almost always annoying.
Example, Every single man turns into a blushing buffoon when a woman talks to them. Even if the character was written as ‘bad ass’, they can never hold a conversation with a girl. Someone who’s allegedly some type of legend will have a girl say ‘he’s kinda cute’ then have a nose bleed and collapse after being melancholic and serious the entire series. Is female interest that funny in Japan? You’re 6 foot tall pure muscle have never been flirted with? lol smh.
It reminds of when you accuse a 7 year old boy of having a girlfriend and he screams and runs away. Only this behavior is transposed on a guy that can blow up planets.
>Virginal writers (Female Characters)
The writing of female characters is consistently awful, and they’re all annoying. No exceptions. They’re always written as the same thing; inappropriately bubbly, explosive, demanding. Or, of course, sad lol. The annoying attempts to get shots of their boobs and crotch, which all are ridiculously inflamed, tells me that nobody in the anime industry has ever talked to a women. If this is a glimpse into the male psyche in Japan, I would really hate to be a woman there.
This is further emphasized by the nosebleeds and collapsing every time a girl talks to male characters. Most anime girls are written the way American animators would write and obnoxious kid sister or busty elf. Even if it has nothing to do with what the character is allegedly ‘supposed to be’. President of the galactic empire has temper tantrum and knocks over table then start gushing about a guy in the span of 2 sentences -no big deal. Sultry and depressed half naked mech suit engineer introduces herself with a dance-jig, -go ahead.
I don’t even want to start with their ridiculous attire lol. Just casually battling in the Siberian tundra in a BDSM bikini and flight jacket LOL.
I can usually ignore it, or enjoy it since there are times when its better that anime characters are not like real shitty humans, but for some reason when I am high on weed it becomes so apparent and annoying that I can't watch anime at all. It kind of sucks.
>>29582 There are plenty of exceptions but he's kind of right in a general sense.
>>29583 but anything and everything, especially mainstream stuff is going to fit into archetypes colored/flavored by the country of origin's culture and the apparatus through which it is published. Same as with Hollywood movies or television, modern and classic literature, they all really have their own flair but they're just smudges or variants on existing caricatures. Maybe some independent and self-published things can get away from this but really only to a degree.
>>29578 Seriously, if ever I buy a new car or a bike, I'm paying a guy to put a vinyl sticker over it with my waifu on it. (You can order custom ones from Taiwan because they don't care about copyright.) Even if it was a shitty Honda I'd feel proud of it, especially if I added some leds to the bottom foe underglow.
Lots of old folks buy luxury cars and order them painted in boring shades of white or black, and dont upgrade them because they don't want to stand out. What's the point? You only live once, and if you're so rich you can buy a luxury car to show your wealth, then you can afford to have it stolen and can just buy another car.
Speaking primarily of our side of the internet, not the Japanese side. It seems like all the (((fandoms))) these days are centered around lackluster mobageshit. There was a time when Touhoufags were a real thing and something like Rozen Maiden was popular enough to warrant its own imageboard. Same with seacats and Yume Nikki. There are really no communities like this anymore though, I think the last time a relevant new one was born was maybe when Madoka came out. Is there just a lack of great media being made lately or is this a sign of internet decay?
I remember when 2DJGAME used to produce and distribute torrent collections of a significant chunk of a whole fucking Comiket. Just tried a search in a couple of trackers and apparently the last ones were from around 2013. Are the chink communities also dying off? Or are there other groups doing something like that these days?
>>29162 >without SJW ruination nevermind that women work in the anime industry, that Jewpan is the most feminist country on earth (or 2nd to Korea, debatable), that virtually every anime features crossdressing boys and pedophilia and incest and cuckoldry and blueballing
>>29176 This company won't survive if we keep wasting so much time on 'normie'
>>29539 This post, OP, this post is the reason. People who come in talking about "feminism", "weeaboos" etc., and retrofitting the asiatic and global narrative with these american concepts.
Underground subcultures and the fandoms they upkeep are not part of any one culture, but nonconforming to them all. When they get watered down as being a weeaboo, which requires you to be acting basically like an American normie but having been corrupted by Toonami instead of hollywood, it creates a strong culture jamming effect where everybody who starts to create some indie stuff will be met with "I get it, you're doing like a weeaboo thing", which actually is a wrong assumption. Subcultures flourish when people think "I don't get what this is about" and start looking into it more and contributing something that reshapes it into it's own entity. Now people won't contribute because they have an existing stereotype that they can say they do understand, and they understand they're not interested. It's like hearing about hunting, but you don't know what animals are so you think it's just hanging around in a forest doing nothing. You'll think you understand a forest is just a bunch of trees.
>>29157 Yeah, I kind of miss feeling a close attachment to my cult of untranslated Japanese indie games, but I don't have the time for caring intenseley about games anymore either. Besides, my identity isnt caught up in that stuff and I dont need to prove I can outweeb the weebs by beating bullet hell games like I might have wanted back then. Just remember all the new indie games are designed as Steam greenlight cash grabs for social weebs, and have no soul and then you won't be disappointed.
Right now its the same old shit its been for the past 6 years, with the obly noteworthy chabge beibg that the AAA companoes have to compete with indie games now. If you want new experiences, then I suggest you just let the currwet wave of gamea crash over you and catch the next one. Just stop playing games until the next generation when a new set of Japanese college students start making good VR landscapes. (Touhou and Higurashi started as the passion projects of diatracted college students.)
he's 100% right btw. the reason you see so many animes set in the high school setting is because boomers fucked Japan up irreversibly. they turned schools into daycare centers by voting laws that force kids into school for 12+ hours a day and then they got bonus tuition after school, effectively extending the school day to 16 hours a day (18 with homework and test preparation), and then you get otakus and autists and losers. then boomers whine that "when I was a kid I had a keychain around my neck and I spent all day outside, why are you sitting indoors at a computer playing games like a kid or watching cartoons???"
I apparently dont have the screencap of how miyazaki is a hypocrite for complaining that otakus are lowlives when in fact he and his generation passed and pushed for all the laws that fucked over japan, which also explained why all animes are set in high school, because that was the last time that people today know how to socialise, after that they just work like slaves and go home to sleep (or go out to get blackout drunk because it's mandatory)
Lets be real though. A drawing is a drawing and there's no way for an anime drawing to actually look like a real girl. No one jerking it to that is jerking because they look like a kid, they're just sexy drawings.
Just like I enjoy chubby anime girls but not really actual chubby girls. Chubby anime girls have the best tits, great asses, they look like they're made of marshmallows. I'd eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They're chubby in every single right place, and they have the greatest stomachs. But real chubby girls are chubby in most of the wrong places, like their asses have no form usually, they're just fat. Their bellies hang over their pants, too much chub at the front, not enough distribution.
Another thing in anime is muscular girls, I'd pay for a muscular anime girl to choke me out with her thighs. Good lord. Muscular thighs can be thicc too but they also have strength to pull you in closer and to hold your head down there when you're eating the sacred fruit. Anime muscular girls also can have large breasts too which is great. Contrasted to real muscular girls where they often look manly and their tits aren't tits, they're like man pecs. I'd pay not to get choked out by them.
Now nerdy girls too in anime. Every single nerd is fucking hot. We all know IRL nerds, especially those in school, they're often not very hot. But they do sometimes grow up to be stunning. But in anime it's like you want to pipe every single one. They all have the neatest asses, the perfect sized tits, and they get flustered over the smallest things. God I love a blushing girl. I admittedly do fap over hot nerdy anime girls. Brown hair, glasses, pony tail, skirt, thigh highs. FUCK. Some of the doujins are great too, where it's the quiet girl at the back of class, no one else thinks she's attractive except the MC (you) and then you bump into her in the halls. She's going to the locker room and asks you to come along because you're talking. You get in the locker room and she's blushing because she actually has a crush on you. She hints at it and you move in to hold her, then she's twitching and almost CUMMING over that alone. Things get heated and she starts kissing you, licking you, she wants to devour you. Clothes come flying off and next thing you know she's gagging on your cock (pixelated). The door starts to slide open, it's the student council president. OH NO. You quickly swing her around into the locker, you're pressed tight against eachother panting. Her breasts are pressed up against your chest, both sweating. She slides down onto your cock and you start railing her in the tight confined space of the locker. She's about to come but you can't let anyone her you so you cover her mouth in the moment. When you move your hand away she's drooling and twitching. It's the best day of her life and yours. Flash forward 20 years and you're happily married with 2 kids and regularly having the best sex imaginable.
This is the power of anime. The Japanese have me on reigns. Let me go.
there's a number of scenes I would want to see animated, but they didn't really do any of them justice in the first go in the anime so I don't know, I'm not sure how popular the anime was in Japan or internationally. The scene where Bujin chokes that ghoul to death with his bare hands, in the manga like, everyone that's fighting, ghouls and people stop and are like wtf. In the anime they just kind of gloss over it.
they really seem to gloss over the details of the inter-personal relationships of the quinx to the point where they don't even have any screen time in the first episode of this second part which doesn't bode well. They also completely changed how this fight with Shachi went down which leaves me smh. shakin my damn head; to be honest.
