Instead of trying to save japan's population through robots or immigration. Why doesn't japan just downsize their economy and all their assets to suit a smaller country and return to being a national backwaters? It'd be the most based thing to do and it'd stop them from being globohomo'd into oblivion.

>The solution is execution, preferably in public and in exemplary ways, or isolation into some far secluded island, where they may be dropped to live lawlessly

with todays modern, egalitarian principles that could never happen. It sucks how people can't just see that an entire ethnic group can be bad for a society. I would be a really racist person if whites were actually better than everyone else. and by better i mean nicer, more moral, pure. But i've been around too many bad whites, just as bad as niggers treat eachother. Nasty, rotten little white kids, white trash adults. Keep in mind that europe for a lot of its history was a backwaters and that even germans and english were at many points, savage barbarians. Hypothetically there could be a society of browns who are better than the rest. but i've never seen one.

Importing immigrants like middle easterners who make rape cases skyrocket and tout shariah law is beyond retarded. In japan's case. Importing any westerners except for rich whites would be disasterous for their nation. Blacks will bring moral decay, beaners will bring drugs and crime, middle easterners and indians will bring rape, lots of rape. They have to import other asians


it's their problem, not mine


>But how does this affect us PERSONALLY?

If you like anime and would like to see more quality Japanese games, then yeah, Japan's societal issues are your issues to.


anime is boring

Shaman King has characters that are English and Irish, though the Irish one is not that relevant.

Britain is relevant in all installments of Read or Die/Read or Dream, just don't expect a positive representation. Also Code Geass.

Diana Cavendish from Little Witch Academia is British.

Clow Reed from Cardcaptor Sakura had an English father, I'm not sure it's said where he is born.

I think L from Death Note is English, or at least the orphanage he was raised in is in England.

I'm sure there are tons more of minor characters that are from the UK.

I suppose every Fate series has at least one character from the UK.


I'd prefer to see Anglo dubs more than I would Anglo or Celtic characters, it doesn't matter what ethnicity the character is they will still act like an anime character.


Why would you want to see mangled attempts at a British character?


In Gundam ZZ they go to Dublin and some intense shit happens there.


I am always amused by Japan's American characters.
I wouldn't be surprised if other countries feel the same.

"Depressing as hell" doesn't cut it as a term for me but there is a melancholic not-quite-sadness underneath the nostalgia I've developed for it because at the time I thought it sucked, and preferred the mood and aesthetics of the 90s. I remember the moods the 2000s gave me though even if I went back in time there's nothing much I could've done to take full advantage of it.

Mushoku Tensei is my favorite Anime, and I think it should be very relatable to wizards. Its where a Wizard gets reincarnated as a literal Wizard.

I just finished the first episode of the second season. It was great.

I wish the story explored the psychology of the protagonist more and went in depth into his trauma, personality development etc but there was very little of that. There was a bit where the isekai father confronts his immaturity but not much more than that. I want to see an isekai where the author is brave enough to send the MC back to their original life and reality at the end of the story and see if their isekai experiences and his new worldview will have effect on how how he navigates reality. But I guess in the end Mushoku Tensei is relegated into the library of wish fulfillment and low quality fantasy


Spoiler: there will be more people from Rudy's world that are reincarnated in this one.


The second season was quite boring. We got a generic school setting and basically zero action. It was all drama dealing with rejection, ED, depression etc.

What's a good place to start this show and when's a good spot to stop watching it?

>Seems like forced marketing bullshit
I mean how can you tell what's genuine and what isn't these days? People don't seem to have their own opinions anymore.


I've watched teasers and trailers and didn't feel like watching the show at all, but the reaction to it does seem excessively and artificially positive.


I watched the live action and it was decent. I mean, it's corny and goofy as fuck, but what else can you expect from One Piece. Apparently the mangaka had some say in the creative direction so they couldn't flip race/gender/sexuality of the characters like you usually expect from Jewflix.


>they couldn't flip race/gender/sexuality
But they did, without informing Oda until after the fact. Then he complained, and they called him a racist.
>as fuck
You must be at least 81 to post here


People say shit about Western adaptations of anime and manga, but truth is most of the Japanese ones are very bad as well, it is something that doesn't really translate well into live action.

Maybe this belongs more on /hob/ and if the mods agree I would hold no ill will for them for moving or deleting it but I recently got around to watching Serial Experiments Lain and wanted to find some other wizzards with good reccomendations for /dep/ anime. The ones of course given are succubi last tour and Lain. I would personally not count Watamote as it seems quite shallow and everything turns out fine in the end and whatnot. So what are some other anime, manga or light novels dealing with actual depression or schizophrenia and not in the mainstream boohoo am so sad way.

>With all the tech available at their very fingertips and instead of creating something new with already existing materials, all they can do is remix and regurgitate in accordance with the "current trend".
because they specifically grew up with smartphones and tablets and the shitty social media apps they contain. that's what made most of them so retarded. remember that article a couple of years ago of college professors having to explain to new students what files and folders were because most of them had never used an actual PC or laptop? all they knew about were "apps".


I thought that was an exaggeration.


Ah yes the mystical oldfag internet that we just had to be there to understand despite all we know of oldfag memes being just as infantile and devoid of creativity as any present trends. Zoomers can't understand rage comics, DESU spam or screamer videos. Truly inferior.


>despite all we know of oldfag memes being just as infantile and devoid of creativity as any present trends.
It must be so depressing to be a zoomer, to not even understand that time works in a linear fashion.

The internet used to be a massive ecosystem of websites and forums with their own cultures and in-jokes. You did actually have to be there to understand because most of the shit is gone.

I'm starting a thread about something that's good for the orbs, and that's old fashioned man-on-man violence. Big guns, robots, fast cars, and flying machines also welcome. Anti-masculine opinions NOTwelcome. In this thread, testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.

Anime about nice school succubi being saved from tentacles by the isekai'd NEET wiz are cool and wizardly [fact], and such fantasies are good for testosterone production, but we need something else to discuss while the pressure of a thousand shoujos weighs too heavily on our shoulders.

Using streaming services is low-t too.

Let us know how it goes.
>Does anyone have recs for stuff similar to great teacher onizuka?

The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Hinamatsuri, I think that's what it's called. It's about a member of the Yakuza who randomly finds some little succubus in his apartment that he's forced to take care of.

It has some funny moments but it's otherwise a serious anime.


File: 1691596073898.jpeg (14.47 KB, 253x199, 253:199, download.jpeg) ImgOps iqdb

Another good one is Space Adventure Cobra, which is more or less a manlier version of Lupin III in space.


>testosterone is good and depression only exists to be overcome.


When I feel down I watch Conan the Barbarian. There is something fascinating about the analogy of a man overcoming overwhelming odds and forged steel. Hell, Conan inspired me to hit the gym 5 days a week for 6 months now…


it's funny, i enjoy the humor and the gags and all the bits. the comedy style rides the line between homoerotic versus juvenile fun. has gym/self improvement/stoicism/masculinity/honor themes. one episode early on is wiz as fuck where momo rejects the succubus and leaves with his bros. they dont make stuff like this tbh

Can't let this be posted without recommending Cromartie High. It's the same in concept but a much more sarcastic take on things that ends up getting pretty meaningful in some chapters. There's some feels that can resonate with guys who are either fired up or fed up. The anime adaption is great and even the dub has been hailed by the doritoist of neckbeards.


What do you think of this american WW2 film about japan? Its an hour long but a lot of it still rings true.

>it doesn't really matter.
Yes it does. You killed a thread with images and conversation to ask a vague question about something you're not even interested in enough to post the title of. Your thread will die because harly anybody is going to other to click an nondescript Youtube link and then post their opinions about it when you yourself haven't even done that.



I read this book, and he had some interesting ideas on why Soviet, 3rd world, and corrupt armies do bad.

But his favorite final answer was because of the unique aspects of Arab, shame-based, authoritian, conformist culture. And I was thinking this could have been written about Japan. And yet Arab and Japanese culture are so far apart.

So if you compare nonwestern cultures to the west, everything different is going to appear strange and exotic.

I think you really only get a sense of what is unique when you compare nonwestern cultures to other nonwestern cultures, and see what is different between them.


wizards are such snobs.


You can fuck off then.


You don't want your palace guards to be able to coup you.

Brand new CCS thread, the old one was ancient and weird. Post and discuss everyone's favorite magic succubus and her friends.

It's because adulthood is garbage. Shouldn't you know this? The show is about optimism and the triumph of goodness. You can accept that sort of delusion coming from a kid but not from a god damn 30yo succubus.

>Why return to do the same thing with the same characters?

Because that's what people who understand what I just explained to you want. If you think following characters around for decades makes it better, go watch Naruto instead. It goes from age 6 to his late 30s.


>Life is shit, "good" is a delusion
Shut up crab blackpiller!!


>It's because adulthood is garbage. Shouldn't you know this?
As a wizard life is a kind of at a standstill, especially nowadays, it's why I'd like to see some kind of progression in life somewhere, so why not in (certain) animations?

>If you think following characters around for decades makes it better

It's not necessarily that I want to follow characters around for decades, it's like *some* animations continue forever with the same characters doing the same thing in a frozen timeline, never moving on in time or passing on the torch to a new set of characters or just never ending on a perfect note.


Sealed Card is amazing, but man, that first movie is so boring and slow.


I can't cope, wizzas!
