I think that's just the Alacrity daemon glitch that this site has. You (or a moderator) probably just need to post in it with "mod.php" mode to revive it. I've listed the steps below.

1. Log into https://8ch.net/mod.php with the public 8chan /infinity/ credentials below.

Username: Anyone

Password: 0

2. Replace "board" and "thread" in the below link with the appropriate board and thread number, then navigate to it.


3. Make a post in it, then the thread should now be visible to everyone again.

From what I've read this slice of life shoujo ai gets incredibly political and darker as the plot advances and it's already getting comments saying the world is "like a communist regime".

Not an anime, I know, but anyone saw the Bismuth episode of steven universe and just got really fucking pissed at the pure concentrated liberalism of it all. Bismuth was right, too. Rose not adopting the breaking point for the crystal gems left the weaker crystal gems hard pressed and not taking the fight to home world was a tactical mistake as the crystal gems get btfo by the triple diamond nuke. Bismuth was right.

A lot of people dislike it for being too leftist.



I wouldn't say it's really leftist but the show is good



It's American anime.



It's pretty all right for a kid's show.



The breaking point was shitty because the Diamonds don't fight directly, they just send the lower classes to fight for them. All you'd be doing is shattering the exploited.

So what do you think about Japan as a country? Their past? Their current form and their future?

What do you think about Abe, and Japan's re-militarization?

Are you informed about current events?

Anyone else read Karel van Wolferen's "The Enigma of Japanese Power"? I think that too few posters on this board have a good grasp over the lack of political consciousness (and the "passive" means of suppressing it) in Japanese society. The book explains a lot of aspects of Japanese culture with the express purpose of getting rid of the idea that the differences are somehow inherent to Japanese people.

Read it! And if you have read it, what are your criticisms?



Do you have a pdf/epub?

>Lies are forbidden and love is doubly forbidden. In the near future, when young people in Japan turn sixteen, they are assigned a marriage partner by the government. People don't have to go through the trouble of looking for someone, and everyone accepts that the country will find a compatible partner to make them happy. Yukari Nejima is fifteen years old. He lives in a small corner of the country, and just can't seem to get ahead in life. Both academically and athletically he's below average. But within him, he hides a heart burning with passion! In this world in which love is forbidden, what will happen to him when he falls in love?

Yeah, these scenes really stuck out to me, too. Isn't this what's meant by "bourgeois art?" They just accept these conditions uncritically, and the show treats it as "oh, well they choose to work that way because they love it so much."

There's nothing wrong with escapism per se. Just like there isn't anything wrong with using ibuprofen when you have a headache, escapism is a spiritual anesthetic that can ease the pain of reality. Some degree of escapism, for any individual I believe, is a normal and healthy thing to engage in, whether it's daydreaming during a boring meeting or recalling a fond memory of a departed loved one or losing oneself in a movie for a couple hours, and so on.

Like many young nerds growing up, I really enjoyed anime and the escape it provided from my life of alienation. My interests and personality separated me from my peers and made school an unpleasant experience at best, and generally I only found community in online spaces like 4chan, where the regular idols of society–wealth, success, beauty, popularity, etc–simply didn't matter or were outright rejected. Like so many others on this trajectory, my life eventually brought me to NEETdom. The pain I experienced from society and its expectations was too great for me to handle and I parted myself from it to instead live in isolation.

What I thought was removing myself from social pain, I eventually came to understand instead as relegating myself to social numbness. The phantom pain of cutting myself off from social interaction was only alleviated by the escapism anime and video games provided. Instead of a temporary relief from social agony, it was a constant drip of fantasy without which living would have been impossible.

I'm since no longer a NEET and my life has taken a different vector, but I'm not completely removed from that world either, and I believe I've been noticing lately some potentially disturbing trends. Wish fulfillment certainly isn't a quality novel to fiction, but it seems as though it's begun to reach levels that go beyond the fantastic into the absurd or surreal. I don't have a better word for it, so I've been calling it the "reincarnation genre."

Shows like Konosuba, Knights and Magic, RE:Monster, Overlord, and others aren't especially unique in their content, but are distinguished by their particular framing devices. The main character originates in our world and tends to be isolated or distinguished in some way.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


This is the critical element, I think. Compare this to something like Harry Potter for example, or something like The Last Starfighter. The main character has origins in "our world," but his special qualities grant him access to a new arena in which he is uniquely positioned to excel. At the end of the adventure or school year or whatever crisis however, he must return to normal, everyday life. The Other Life he experiences remains as a unique but private experience from which he is ultimately fated to return (though in TLS iirc he ends up living with his girlfriend on the Federation planet).

Experiencing modern social life is painful in numerous ways, and is all the more painful the further one is removed or excluded from it, and this gulf of removal becomes an even more traumatic barrier to re-entry into society. For most NEETs, in one way or another, either because of this barrier that has developed or because of the original trauma that drove them from society in the first place, re-entering social life (to work or attend school or even face their parents as the case may be) has simply become too great for them to bear, or they believe such a return to be unnecessary or otherwise undesirable. With the pain of return too great and the pain of isolation otherwise unbearable, the anesthetic, or in this case narcotic, of escape is the only option.

Under these assumptions, the proliferation of these reincarnation anime raises significantly troubling implications. The simply painkiller of escape, with its fleeting character and implied return to Real Life, is no longer sufficient, or perhaps even desirable. Instead, fantasies of success and fulfillment unlimited by the constraints of this world or adversity in The Other Life become either necessary or desired. If the development and proliferation of this genre does indeed mirror the collective NEET psyche, then it also reflects the severe and increasing nature of the alienation the individuals that make up this community are experiencing. That is not to say that these anime or this genre is bad or harmful in itself, but as a barometer of who appears to be its intended audience's mental and spiritual health, I believe that the nature and character of its content to be unavoidably alarming.

There tend to be more ugly villains than heroes because society leaves them no other option. People turned into bats by radioactive ghosts shouldn't be excluded from everyday life just because they now crave human blood. A hot masked woman that can control matter shouldn't get 70% of what her male counterpart gets for ransoming a European country. Transphibians and other human-to-animal individuals should be allowed to use the bathroom of the species they identify as. Since masked villains make up more than 80% of cases of super villain brutality, and more than 90% of all megamax, subterranean, voidbuilt, temporal, and plastic prisons, it is clear that we need to make changes to what we consider "justice" in this country. New evidence shows that only five superheroes control 86% of the world's adamantium, while seven rogue scientists control 69% of all super-atomium. We, the XX%, believe that there needs to be a new discussion about the distribution of these and other resources.
