1. Movies are popular than anime, which makes /tv/ more normalfaggy.

2. These celebrities "love anime" as much as rappers love heavy metal, which is not at all. It's just a weird or nerdy trait they pick for themselves to try and show that they are human beings like everyone else and wow their audience with their down-to-earthness.

3. Most of the anime they like is the usual Miyazaki or DBZ shit.

Everyone agrees anime was good up until the early 2000s. Afterwards, it's split between those who condemn the decadence into moeshit and pedobait, and those who enjoy it and are part of the problem.

Take Don't Bully Me Nagatoro, the latest fad in /a/. It's about this tsundere brown loli who keeps bullying a nard. Sounds sweet, right? Well, actually we would be losing our minds if it was a hollywood movie: it's femdom with a completely irrelevant, weak male that's monstrously damaging to any male kid.

Current year Japan is a place where you trade a good fap, for a thorough humiliation by stronk lolis. Another kind of dystopia, but still a dystopia just like feminism.

>everything i don't like should be banned

No, THIS is the real problem. This mentality that we should all come to an agreement on what should be allowed to exist and what shouldn't is what is truly damaging to society and splinters it into many factions that can be easily controlled by those already in power.

Instead of people just not giving a shit about everything else and just doing what they like, you have militarized groups of people from all sides, all demanding that everything should be specifically how they request it and anything else should be destroyed.

This isn't just anime, it applies to everything. Feminism for example doesn't exist in Japan, why? Because it's a non-issue, because you don't have a (((certain group of people))) pushing for us to have an opinion on something (preferably a leftist one). The Japs don't have shit like feminism because unlike us, they really just don't give a shit.

 No.1205018

Anime as a medium has beeen ruined by moe garbage pandering to closet pedophiles. Look up this spring's anime releases. The mpst prominent titles are easily moe garbage about underage girls.

I find it very creepy and unsettling that people older than me enjoy watching prepubescent girls doing little girl things for hours on end. Now imagine if you made live-action adaptations of these moe animes. That would really put things into perspective about how pedophilic these things are.

We have great anime like Kino's journey, legend of the galactic heroes and mushishi but for every 1 of those there's 30 about a bunch of little girls because that's where the money is.


 No.1205031

>>1204990

I think to some extent it makes sense, just as it's cheaper to write a book than make a film it's also less expensive to draw a comic than to make an animation so those mediums have more artistic freedom and can be more experimental, they're also done by just a couple of people so there's also a much stronger authorship.

Great reddit argument, nigger. The ISSUES were explained in the post, but you can't face them out of brand loyalty. Don't play pretend with people smarter than you, kid.

>Feminism for example doesn't exist in Japan, why?

Not true, this is just crap from early goymergate. Japan's universities are not yet infested by marxists, true: but 1. they do have a progressive elite which dictates trends (watch some actual movies, other than cartoons, and you will notice) and 2. their companies closer to the west have already obliged several times to politically correct.

Put your fat hands to rest and thank me, instead of rushing to type some bullshit retort about facts having different meanings. If you realize now that Japan is as vulnerable and fallible as the West, your fragile identity wont come crashing down when the worst happens.

>This mentality that we should all come to an agreement on what should be allowed to exist and what shouldn't is what is truly damaging to society

Welcome to the world of the grown ups, kid. This is no cartoon where the heroes go for a middle way that keeps everyone a friend. You either believe the truth and empower yourself with facts, or end up worshing a bunch of old jews that control you with propaganda.

Yeah, because you know your medium turned to shit when fucking CARTOONS (top kek, amirite?) surpass it in almost every way, but even still, you try to defend your Marxist propaganda and movies about Marxist values because you are offended when someone attacks your AMERICAN cultural heritage in favour of something else, either that or genuinely have such low standards that you enjoy the cinematic equivalent of having someone shit down your throat.

I like PRECURE precure a lot. It is a Mahou Shoujo that doesn't try to deconstruct, subvert, or sexualize the girls. It is a series of simple girl's adventure story with good morals and a proper sense of right and wrong. Good will always win if the goio never surrender. Evil can be redeemed if it truly repents. Life isn't always happy but if you stick by you and your own you will make it.

I don't mind when the girls throw down as long as it isn't Strikers shit where it is just cruelty and bloody violence. Smile still a best. Did you watch Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara? It's a Mahou Shoujo that isn't a Mahou Shoujo. Very slow and very dry humor, but if that is your kind of thing it is extremely agreeable. The character designer was the animation director of Yama no Susume so it may seem familiar at first. However the tone of the two series is radically different.

>>1206076

No it was pretty boring and melodramatic as fuck. Still enjoyable in it's own guilty pleasure kind of way. You would know the point when it went to absolute dogshit if you saw it. I'm not particularly a fan, but it gave some good memes and it will kill some time.

>>1206088

Different reasons. Eva goes to shit because Anno had no idea what he was doing and blew his budget early on. It doesn't help that he was mentally fucked at the time and had an absolute hatred for the typical otaku who he felt was killing animation through their casual faggotry and buyfaggotryHe was right. Death Note goes to shit because the manga should have ended but they just kept going to milk the shekels.

nyaa.pantsu.cat is actually based out of Norway and the best open anime torrent site on the web. If you want vintage shit BBT has a great selection of obscure and old as fuck shit. Don't get anything new from BBT though, they are locked down by certain groups that only get their magnets added.

Smile was pretty good, but it was a hair too far on the slice of life and goofy scale for me. I'm not some shounen-tier faggot crying endlessly for fisticuffs, but some would be preferable. Smile had approximately one great fight scene in its run, and that just wasn't enough. Precure as a whole is a scrumptious series, but I just don't think it reaches it's full potential without the action. I really liked Wolfrun and the gang, though.

I did watch Mahoumouii. It was pretty comfy, but I really hesitate to call it Mahou Shoujo. It's in a different ballpark entirely. I didn't realize it had the same designer as Yama no susume, but now that you mention it it's obvious.

Smile was what got me interested in Precure so I will always wear my nostalgia goggles.

Yama no Susume is top tier. I am hesitant to call it a sports anime despite what /fit/ and /sp/ though. It was a coming of age story that genuinely seemed more rooted in overcoming the limitations one puts on oneself than the fear of the unknown you see in most stories of the type. Interesting enough you can actually track the archtype heroic cycle in Aoi's struggles. I have seen some attempts to apply the monomyth to women before, but it always rang false and took many misteps. With YnS you genuinely understand the mythopoetic qualities of her struggle as she treks onwards.

Pure kino.

>>1206133

If you can't find it don't worry about it right now. It's a private tracker that has been closing membership often lately. Any vintage anime isn't going to probably appeal to someone who hasn't aquired a palette. Aesthetics, quality, and production are vastly differnet between different periods and many people will find themselves turned off by things that are not the current style. Dip your toes in the contemporary waters and find something that interests you. When you have a vague idea what you like come back and make a request thread. Never go to /a/ and listen to anything they say. They are absolute shit tier redditors with the most god awful taste and will mislead you before permabanning you. The tranny that runs the board is batshit crazy and a global and if you earn nepfags ire by not being whatever it wants you to be it will stalk you all over the site and constantly fuck with you. Verdict is still out on /animu/. There are a lot of redditors that nepfag brought over during it's many recruitment drives that left /a/ because of the overbearing moderation. However there are a handful of lich tier wizards that lurk on /animu/ who are fantastically autistic about their singular obsessions.

Thanks for the advice and for being so helpful, anon. I have been lurking /a/ for some time and its mostly moe-tier shit that they post as far as I have seen. I have lurked /animu/ and you are right on the fantastically autistic anons there.

I am gonna take your advice and watch a bunch of different anime genres. I'll post here again tomorrow with a request thread if I find anything that interests me. But right now though I am really interested in watching stuff like Jin-Roh the Wolf Brigade… it just looks so cool and dystopian.

Also for the vintage thing, is it a safe assumption that I might like anime vintage if I already like the sort of equivalent in movies, like for example Mean Streets? I really love movies like that, just wondering if that is what the equivalent might be in anime taken your post in consideration

damn, 5:34 in Norgay here, gonna hit hay soon

It is almost completely filled with seasonal casuals with no understanding of the medium, who are keen to regurgitate opinions they have read on other websites without actually having read or watched the material they are commenting. The majority of discussion there is little more than

>MUH DICK

And the Jannies are capricious faggots who will ban you for having an opinion different than them. If you are familiar with Mark, the board owner of /v/, it is similar but much more pronounced as the users of /a/ suffer from battered wife syndrome and will continue to dick ride the "feminine penis" of nepfag despite it's obvious contempt for the users.

You are never going to find something exactly like a Scorsese flick in anime since the essential character of Japanese people is significantly different. You can however find cases where there is a decent homage to his style or crime drama in general. Most often if you want to find something that would be outside of mainstream interests or stuff with an established and dedicated fanbase you are going to need to go with manga.

That said, Rainbow: Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin is a pretty melodramatic series that follows a group of teenage juvenile delinquents in a reform school in post war occupied Japan. The story follows the boy's life in the facility and their lives upon leaving. The subject matter gets dark but real suspension of disbelief is difficult as the direction is ham handed.

If you want something that is more emotionally similar to mean streets and genuinely pensive and introspective of the lives of men with nothing to lose there is the manga House of Five Leaves. I can not vouch for the adaptation, but the manga is very good. It is set in Edo period Japan and follows a swordsmen who ends up working for a criminal organization and the moral issue he struggles with.

Those two series will give me a better idea of what interests you may have.

Rainbow: Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin and House of Five Leaves. Will definitely check those out, thanks.

Though I am more into watching than reading mostly, but that might change.

>You are never going to find something exactly like a Scorsese flick in anime since the essential character of Japanese people is significantly different.

I can believe that, but is there at least some shows similar to Scorsese's crime movies? I am wondering if there are any good anime, or manga for that matter, that focuses on Yakuza based themes that you could recommend. Or anything related to crime syndicate.

There are a few crime dramas. Mostly stuff that gets animated is stuff that is meant to appeal to as broad an audience as possible or a very niche audience that will shell out a lot of cash. You seem like a 80s 90s OVA kind of person. Most of the stuff from that era has either some giant organization and conspiracy or cyberpunk element and fantasy edge to it. There is Crying Freeman, an assassin story that deals with the Triad. Banana Fish is getting an adaptation this year, I enjoyed the hell out of that back in the day but it is more a psychedelic freak out story. Baccano and Durararara are both sort of focused around crime and drama but they are fantastical as fuck. Texnohlyze is cyberpunk goodness through and though but at it's core it is a story of gang warfare that destroy a corrupt and decadent society fallen into dissolution. Pluto is fantastic. It's sort of different take on Astroboy with the setting and story is significantly changed but it is a straight detective story.

Monster has an adaptation and you might like the fuck out of it. It is about doctor in post cold war Germany who makes the choice to save the life of a child over the life of a rich man and the consequences that has on the world. I am not going to spoil it for you but it is quite the rabbit hole to go down. I might not enjoy it as much as I used to because as I recall there is turkroach apologism in it.

Really if you want good crime fiction from Japan you are going to want to go manga. The audience is a lot smaller over there for western style crime fiction so you won't find a lot of anime. If you want to go period you will find a lot of Edo era crime shit. Just replace western clothes with kimonos and swords with guns. I am pretty tired myself and to be honest my brains are donkey shit. Seinen is the genre you want to explore but it is pretty broad. Stuff like Koroshiya Ichi might sound like something you would be interested in but the vibe is more of pure spectacle and ultra-violence than something Scorsese would do. The reason I am asking you to dip your feet in is because there is no direct analog to a lot of thematic elements. When you say you like Mean Streets because it is a crime drama it doesn't really tell me why you like it. If you watch some stuff and tell me what you like then it becomes easier to figure out the elements that you appreciated and find those themes. Tokyo Tribe and it's sequel deal with gangs in Shibuya. Sun-ken Rock is about cops and gangs and is pretty good. Mad Bull is just a batshit insane cop story set in New York in the 1980s. Kaiji and Akagi are about the underworld and get into some pretty implausible scenarios but like a lot of Nobuyuki Kukumoto's work deals with the essential character of a man and how we allow our own mediocrity destroy our lives. Saikyo Densetsu Kurosawa is one of Fukumoto's best stories. It isn't crime drama at all but holy fuck it will hit you.

I have watched and read a lot of anime and manga. Fucking decades of my life spent on this shit. I have sat through entire series and not remember until the last few episodes that I had watched them years and years before. And through it all my taste have fluctuated wildly as I have grown to appreciate things and learned contempt for others.

Holy shit, anon… This is a lot to digest. Looks like I am gonna have a lot of watching and reading to do now.

I will read those manga recommendations after watching some shows I guess. Got to get a feel for it first, then I will make a more specific request thread here on /tv/ in the foreseeable future. Not like I got anything else to do with my time.

>When you say you like Mean Streets because it is a crime drama it doesn't really tell me why you like it

Well, I suppose I could have been more telling, but you already summarized it well in your previous posts, so I thought I didnt need to further explain.

>And through it all my taste have fluctuated wildly as I have grown to appreciate things and learned contempt for others.

Seeing how much you know about this, being a true encyclopedia and all, are there any shows that I should definitely avoid like the plague?

And have you really spent decades in your hobby? How old can you be, man?

>It was a coming of age story that genuinely seemed more rooted in overcoming the limitations one puts on oneself than the fear of the unknown you see in most stories of the type. Interesting enough you can actually track the archtype heroic cycle in Aoi's struggles. I have seen some attempts to apply the monomyth to women before, but it always rang false and took many misteps. With YnS you genuinely understand the mythopoetic qualities of her struggle as she treks onwards.

Looks super deep. When will people start recognizing anime as a sophisticated art form?
