Given the recent influx of users I realize I need rules rather than arbitrarily banning people.

1. Take it easy.

2. This is a SFW board so use spoilers for anything lewd.

3. This is a place for leftists to relax and talk about 2D. If you're a /pol/yp and came here to "debate", use >>>/leftypol/ for that instead.

I prefer Jiraiya’s sage mode in how it looks since, it actually gives toad like features that clearly show that it's active. Additionally it would allow the Six Paths Sage mode to look more distinct rather than having to clue in on the fact that Naruto’s eyelids aren’t orange. Moreover the toad-like features are advantageous, they allow the jumping style of the Frog Kata to be used more naturally for example, the Frog like legs provide more powerful natural jumping ability… also sharp teeth are better for biting.

- https://otakukart.com/animeblog/2017/04/28/jiraiyas-sage-mode-stronger/1/

Also its rather irritating how Minato says that he’s not good at sage mode in spite of balancing it perfectly. It's not that he wouldn’t be that powerful, but him saying that ought to at least have been shown in him being more like Jiraiya’s 'imbalanced' sage mode. Not to mention that that would be interesting seeing how Minato was considered a bishounen and so the effects of the ‘incomplete’ sage mode would produce an interesting reaction from onlookers.

However Minato may not be able to use sage mode to its fullest which is why he says he's bad at it. When it was shown in the manga, his Rasengan was even referred to as Senjutsu: Rasengan instead of Senpou (Sage Art): Rasengan.

Reposting a good post about the Jiraiya is Koji theory.

Here's my thoughts on this matter. Firstly, Kashin Koji does indeed have a high chance of being connected with Jiraiya. The reasons are mostly the same, Kashin can use fire style jutsu extensively, can use (as far as we know) rasengan, can summon toads and use toad style jutsu, and excels at infiltration and information gathering. These are the main reasons, however, there is another reason, and most people haven't realized this yet, but in the newest chapter of the manga (check out mangatown), we got a close up of Kashin's eyes when he was observing Kawaki and Boruto training. In the close up, Kashin's eyes look (undoubtedly) like Sage Mode. The irises were distinctly horizontal, and the markings around his eyes became more prominent. After the close up, Kashin's eyes reverted to normal. He also is shown to be skilled in fuinjutsu or sealing, and Jiraiya was a Seal Master.

Of course, no argument can be valid without some counter argument, so here's why I believe Kashin is not Jiraiya. Firstly, Kashin is very skinny, fit, but not bulky fit like Jiraiya was, however, a person's physique can obviously change over time. Secondly, Kashin is too young to be Jiraiya; with around 20 years passing since Jiraiya died at nagato's hands, he would now be around 70, like the Sandaime. Kashin, is obviously extremely younger compared Sarutobi, there is distinctively no liver spots or wrinkles. Of course, if someone wants to take a very big leap, and with the limited knowledge we have on Jingen and Kara and theorize that Jiraiya was revived and went through experiments to regress his aging (or something of that matter) they can, however, the limited knowledge on Kara we have makes it feel imprudent to theorize too much. Thirdly, Jiraiya's death was one of the turning points for Naruto (character and series), and while some may say bringing him back is a positive (and that is true, except for one thing about Kashin), Kashin joining Kara and distinctively killing someone without much remorse just doesn't feel right, it makes Jiraiya's death seem extremely extraneous and demeans its importance. And finally, and this is my biggest reason, KASHIN ISN'T A PERVERT! JIRAIYA'S MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTIC IS HIS PERVERSION. DELTA WAS RIGHT NEXT TO KASHIN AND HE DIDN'T TRY TO COP Post too long.

Boruto Uzumaki, a child prodigy, son of the greatest ninja of all time.

Hands are bound by a rope and can’t do shit

Seriously it was so funnily stupid that Boruto supposedly couldn't use ninjutsu with his hands tied. Did someone forget he can do jutsu with one hand? Rasengan and Vanishing Rasengan don't even require hand signs.

No matter how tight you tie something around your wrists. You can still move your finger. What are you talking about? His wrists are pulled together, he can definitely weave some handsigns. Sure some of them are not possible but come on.

Now of course they were surrounded by Kirara, Ohnoki and 4 Akuta, but they could simply have NOT have Boruto state that he couldn't do Jutsu like this.

>The Sandaime didn't really do much for Naruto directly

To repost someone's answer on this

It’s clear that once he was old enough to live on his own, Hiruzen Sarutobi (AKA the Third Hokage) simply provided finances for Naruto to keep his own place. We get a quick scene in episode 257 of Shippuuden (Pictured above) where Hiruzen shows up at a young Naruto’s place, giving him enough money to cover “the month’s expenses”, and reminding him to “spend it wisely” before walking out the door. So, it seems Naruto was entrusted from an early age to live alone and even budget for himself as best he knew how.

(Which is also why he got cheated on nearly every financial transaction, and why he loved ramen so much. The ramen guy didn’t cheat him…but I digress.)

As to when he was younger than that, it’s presumed by most that Hiruzen lived with him. Given Naruto was entrusted to Hiruzen at Minato’s death, and, as a Jinchuuriki, would have been a potential target for kidnapping much like Hinata, it would make sense if he was a ward of Hiruzen up until he was 3 or so and could be trusted not to do something hazardous to his own life.

On the other hand…

No one, even Hiruzen himself, seems to have much of a connection with him until they interact with him at a much older age. It seems unlikely that Hiruzen pushed the responsibility Minato gave him directly to anyone else, and Naruto was not part of the orphanage that Yakushi Nono ran (which likely didn’t exist anymore by his birth, given the timeframe of its events). But it also seems unlikely that the active Hokage would have time to supervise a newborn, particularly in the aftermath of the Kyuubi’s attack.

At an older age, Naruto was watched by the ANBU in secret, rather than housed with anyone. We get examples in flashbacks of Kakashi in ANBU working that assignment. It’s quite plausible that rather than Naruto living with the Third in his infancy, this sort of assignment waPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Hey comrades, I have a bit of a confession to make: I was another one of those retarded kids who got into anime, became entranced by the beauty of the Japanese language and wanted to become fluent. Except I was in my early 20s ;-;

Now, I got further then your average weeb kid who says shit like baka-gaijn-senpai-kun but I'm still probably at or below an intermediate level. The toughest part for me is of course the Kanji that every pleb struggles with, the spoken language to my ear isn't so difficult to understand but it takes me a little bit to process a response.

To be honest, I'm not that much of weeb anymore after graduating college and getting a gf she has come around to the weeb ways but I feel like giving up on Japanese after putting in so much effort and hours into it would kinda be a waste.

On the other hand, I really don't what I will do with it: I'm not sure I want to live in hellhole controlled by a far-right government undergoing Milton Friedman-tier porky restructuring alongside an out of control nuclear meltdown. I would probably enjoy the upsides of the expat experience in Japan tho…

Realistically, unless I use my knowledge of Japanese to expose the history of the Japanese Left to a broader audience, write a history on the Meiji Revolution, or critique Japanese fascism or the development of Japanese capitalism, I don't think that it would be of much use either to my interests as a leftist or to my comrades. Let's just say I'm pretty far from that fam.

I've thought that Japanese could be a stepping stone to my study of Chinese since original research there is even rarer. But having taken a course in Chinese I am not naive enough to think that these languages are similar; they sound miles apart.

Can you recommend some methods and tactics to learn Japanese so it doesn't have to be a career in itself? Also, non-animu or mango Japanese culture recommendations would be appreciated just for variety.

And one last protip, I know I said I wouldnt type much but now my neurons are firing. Learning vocab, is learning words. HOwever, you HAVE to use these for them to stick. I do neuroscience research in my offtime and one of the best ways for language learning to stick in our brains is to use them in more than one way. It took me three years to learn how to properly learn this language. I tried just remembering Kanji but I just explained how that doesnt work.

What you want to do is first download anki, a flashcard program. Then insert into flashcards the Kanji, and the word definition. I.E.

変体-へんたい on side A.

Hen.Tai/Transformation/Pervert on side B

So go over like however many you think you can learn in a day, Id say start off with 10 a day or even 5 a day to take it slow.


 No.288

>>287

Here's my tip. It proved to be very suffiecent. As you are going over the Kanji in anki, type out EVERY Kanji you see on a wordpad or like microsoft word, so as they come up, your wordpad should look something like this. ひかり、くろい、てんし、みず、かなしい… but way more, you should almost a whole page of that. Then after you remember them(the program asks you how well you remember and makes you go over them till you remember well), youll have like atleast two paragraphs of stuff you typed, not WITHOUT looking at the cards, (which you shouldnt need cause by this pint you should remember them well, atleast for now) go over the hiragana you just typed, and type it in romaji like so: hikari, kuroi, tenshi, mizu, THen after you typed EVERYTHING you just typed in hiragana as romaji, do it in english.

Light, Black/Dark(also a cool tip, when a word can mean two things, which is VERY often in Japanese, just switch out the definition when typing it over and over to remember more definitions) , angel, water….

And after this, I can guarantee once you go back over these in a few days… or whenever you want to (Ill let you decide on that level of rigor), you will remember ATLEAST half of them.

Whats the point of this? Well when your brain is learning another language, the more forms you use it in, the better it sticks. So beleive it or not, when I learn new Japanese words, I can tell you what SHINKA means off the top of my head. But if you showed me the Kanji for it 進化 it takes me a little longer to think up, or even odder, if you asked me what "evolve/evolution" means, id stutter a second. So this knocks all that out.

Also my friend who knows even more than me, tells me a cool way to learn words also is to use pictures.. I havent tried this method, but heard it works well cause it puts it in your brain as raw data when your neurons commence synapse, rather than "translating" it. So it would make sense.

Anyways, good luck on your endeavors.. if anyone wants to ask me anything else feel free, im sure ill be lurking around here atleast occasionally.

Senkou-san is a god of fox with supernatural powers, so what did she do? Did she educate Nakano's colleague to be more responsible? Did she discipline the company Nakano is working for due to their labour abuse? Or did she overthrown the whole capitalist system for treating normal people as slaves? No, all she does is to pet Nakano with her tails to encourage him to keep working deadly.

At the start of this show, there was a scene which 3 gods are holding a meeting, saying Nakano is holding darkness within due to he's been oppressed by this system, is dangerous and will bring this world to ruin, so they need to send someone to comfort him and reduce his belligerence. Which really makes you think, whose world is "this world"?

TL;DR: The kitsune Senkou is clearly a malevolent one, who seduces/tricks the MC by being kind and calming him, thus distracting him from the important problems of his life, I.E. his rights as a human being. It's a repetition of those stories of men being taken with demons who make them forget about what's important, except far more subtly.

Thanks for the quality post. Something that tried to get rid of the baggage that the words socialism/communism carried was the Venus project, and it is amazing the sort of people it managed to gather. Instead of those in it for the political and dialectic analysis, there are those just aspiring for scientific pursuits, which of course also entails collective action for efficiency and better individual psychological stability. Hopefully they go somewhere or their work can be used someday without being perverted by the politics they try to avoid, it's funny seeing them being accused of being apolitical.

when Shinji does man the fuck up, get in the robot, etc, in Rebuild, it's shown that he becomes so gung-ho HE accidentally ends the world instead of his father. When he does what the more ignorant viewers want and stops "being a little bitch" (or rather, acting line a normal fucking kid his age when presented with that level of responsibility) he ends up predictably fucking up and killing almost everyone… Twice. In the original show, when Asuka provoked him after he superceded her sync ratio, he went head on after an Angel, and ended up being sucked into it, possibly dying had Unit-01 berserk again.

Because, *gasp*, he's an easily manipulated, emotionally under-developed recluse who is unable to socialize past the basic automatic manners and other social graces. He's variably either madly in love or completely high on the premise of 'saving the world' that he doesn't stop to think that, hey, this thing all his other friends are saying "DON'T TOUCH THAT" shouldn't be touched. But hey, backing down would be a bitch move, so let's go ahead and cause another Impact, why the fuck not. And no one seems to get that that is the point of Evangelion: Both the first run of it and Rebuild are criticisms of the genre from different directions.

Stick a kid in a giant robot and say "Hey, you are solely responsible for the lives of everyone in this city. And the planet, too!" means you get a blubbering, ineffectual idiot who can't handle it, because he's FOURTEEN YEARS OLD and doesn't know how to deal with the pressure. Normal teens with NORMAL pressures can't always hold up to pressures, let alone the emotional wreck of abandonment issues that Shinji is.

Alternatively, take the same kid, give him a hero/savior complex (like 90% of shows which rip-off NGE, or the Rebuilds), give him friends and a girlfriend, and now he takes massive risks he really shouldn't, ignoring advice of authority figures who know better and his friends, and happily mashes the "END THE FUCKING WORLD" button like it's going out of Post too long.

Shonen Ronin is one of the few based leftist anime youtuber. Recently I saw his video called 'NO! Elon Musk Will Not Engineer You Cat Girls'

His assessment of the cult of personality surrounding Musk is quite accurate:

Musk is a billionare interested in maintaining wealth/having fun, no matter at whose expense (usually the workers). He doesn't give a damn about any of us.

BUT I fundamentally disagree with Ronin's assessment of Evangelion. Liking or disliking Evangelion is subjective. I understand why some people find it boring, for the same reason some people dislike Shin Godzilla's human focus, it's just not to their tastes. However Shonin's dislike of NGE is more than that and I find his reasoning flawed.

>1) Evangelion is mediocre

A subjective statement Ronin doesn't really expand on. Mediocre in what? Art Design? Musical Composition? Animation? Plot? Dialogue? It's not entirely clear what the measurement on this mediocrity is. If Ronin would like to expand on his qualms there I would like to hear them.

I do agree that the idea of individualism has been over-used and warped by modern day ideologues, however keep in mind that NGE was made in the 90s when the Japanese economy crashed and people were turning a critical eye to capitalism and how it crushed the soul, while wearing a gilded mask of joy.

>Evangelion fans are degenerate freaks

Sorry what? You do realize that judging Evangelion fans by the Otakus and Weebs who go so far as to buy figurines and body-pillows aren't the majority of the fanbase. Go to Evangelion forums like EVAgeeks and you don't see this kind of shit. Yes of course there is the "Rei-fag vs Asuka-fag" stuff but again that's largely a Weeb argument made by toxic /a/ users rather than the majority of the fanbase. For example this thread… theres like 1-2 sexual or pornographic posts here, compared to ddozens of posts with discussion. If you look at Evangelion fanfiction (ignoring the usual poorly written lemon fics made by horny 15 year old weebs) most are attempts to expand character interactions and the story and/or continue what goes on Post-Third-Impact or other ideas. Crack-fics like Shinji's Nightmare Cataclysm are rare as hell and made more as literary night-mare fuel than anything else.

An example of a decent fic would be

So I stumbled across this video on YouTube today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-9vRCpkL98

The first part of the video is about how Hidamari Sketch is good and CGDCT anime more generally have artistic merit and can be thematically diverse, and that is very agreeable. 6 minutes in, though, he starts speaking about how progressive these shows are and that's when I got a little lost. I don't thinking merely passing the Bechdel test or having a female writing staff is a sufficient condition for a show to be "feminist". I understand the K-On! one, I suppose, because the characters and their relationships with each other are really well developed.

What do you guys think? Is he right, or is this idpol stuff a waste of time, or are these shows still objectifying in spite of these factors? That's a genuine question: I'm honestly not sure what I think.

I think whether it's trans-inclusive or not very much depends on the particulars of the portrayal. For example, Zombieland Saga and Blend S were both CGDCT shows but With a token boy-girl character, but the ways these characters are written and even the ways other characters in the show interact with them are very different In Zombieland Saga it's pretty explicit that Lily is meant to be trans, especially in the original Japanese, and she is still treated like one of the other girls. In Blend S, it's a constant joke throughout the series that Hideri is male, and this kind of messaging is certainly less trans-inclusive, but I would say in the show's defense that, from what I gather, he does identify as a cross dresser and uses "boku:"etc. so it wou;d be hard to claim it's a denial of trans identity or anything like that, even if it's less positive.

There is still an issue with this, however, because both these characters in the West fall under the umbrella of "trap". I don't think the trap meme is necessarily damaging in its entirety, but I certainly think it is at least in so far as it allowed this conflation between mere cross dressing and people who are actually transgender. There was actually a thread about this a little while ago >>2674

Source on New Game shit? All the author posts about is precure and kamen raider.

I follow most of the kirara authors and they never bring up politics, but it's hard to imagine them being hardcore reactionaries while writing about girls loving girls.

The only time I saw a kirara author outed for posting hateful shit he actually got the fucking boot from the magazine:

As many of us know 8chan has a retarded Alacrity bug that essentially 404s many images that are in active threads. To counteract this one needs to repost the exact same image again. This thread is for that purpose.

This is also a reminder to Waybackarchive and archive.is all threads and all images and webms, with images and webms requiring individual archiving to make sure they're saved.

- Wayback machine can be downloaded onto a browser in a manner no different to an adblocker and thus be used in a similar way, just open a link (be it a thread or an image url), right-click and select "save page now" If you have issues saving simply reload the browser or open another browser and save there.

- Archive.is can simply be pinned as a bookmark and clicking on it will automatically start saving the page you're currently viewing.

Both are simple methods so people not using them or using them enough is simply inexcusable on this buggy site.

If you cannot find an image in wayback or archive.is open the tor variant of these pages, many missing images are there.

You can run the following from your images directory to generate a list of hashes:

find . -type f | xargs -d'\n' sha256sum > /tmp/hashes

You can then grep it for the missing filenames (without the extension), they are named after their sha256sum's. It's worth a try.

"Loli" is sexual. We don't call, for example, Yugi Muto a "shota". OFC liking a young female character doesn't in and of itself make you a pedophile. But there's a difference, for instance, between calling Akko a "young girl" and a "loli". One of these things is derived from a form of child pornography, itself etymologically traced back to a book about a pedophile.

Sexual attraction is not a negotiable component of pedophilia; it's the defining component.

To claim that someone who likes typical loli aesthetics in a non-sexual manner and context is a pedophile makes about as much sense as claiming that everyone who thinks babies are cute is also a pedophile.

Without sexual attraction, there is absolutely no argument to be made for literally any kind of paraphilia. It's as contradictory as cancer without abnormal cell growth; that's just not how it works.

Reposting a post relevant to One Piece

…one anime that really does fetishize monarchism just a bit too much is One Piece. It's gone so far that they castrated the Revolutionary army from an actual revolutionary group to simply wanting to "get rid of the globalists World Government" and keeping the 'good kingdoms'. The same shit happened to the revolutionaries in Alabasta Arc, reduced to it being a 'misunderstanding' when the king refused to use stuff like rain-powder. That's partially why Crocodile is fun, he's pragmatic. Sure he could kill everyone with his powers but why waste time when he could get what he needed in a smarter and better way. He did cause the dried wells, but frankly if that 1 detail was changed to it being a natural increase of sand-storms King Cobra's indecisiveness becomes instantly criminal, similar the same thing that Czar Nicholas II did.

Obviously the Straw Hats befriending members of monarchy is world-building and romanticism in the same way as older fantasy fiction about gallant but rough pirates being noble rogues and befriending royalty. Obviously we don't want to see the Straw Hat's friends be over-thrown and thus end up like the Doflamingo Family did, but still.

Then again One Piece is massively contradictive, pointing out the evilness of monarchy with the Goa-Kingdom and their plan to eradicate Grey Terminal.

Considering her lack of actual combat capability this may turn out true, although Chapter 939 seems to imply that Zoro will be saving her.
