I fucking hate MAL for their treatment of digital-only written media. Anilist's been having better criteria for it and only now (after denying plethora of submissions FOR YEARS) they've decided to allow non-printed webtoons recently and still shit like pic related. Despite the fact of belonging to the notable franchise. It's part of one title and one-shots are allowed. WTF.

2 years and still some novel submissions are in queue.


MAL was always a site for normgroids and even groidnorms to earn coolkid points by showing how many anime they've watch.

Your watches should't be quantifiable to a number, but to a list of ways watching anime has bettered you as a person.

It's time to stop watching anime and instead start "watching" "anime".

Besides if you have problem with Website.com then go to Website.com/forums to complain.


There's no rules against discussions of sad current state of affairs. Culture in general doesn't change people and certainly doesn't make people better. Otherwise Hitler wouldn't succeed.


i use mal only for anime because it is synced into the thing i use to watch anime. i don't track manga, i used to just have bookmarks but over the years with pc changes idk where they are. i use mangaupdates to find manga though


Mal manga mods are terrible
I have submitted lots of stuff in anilist and they get it done in two weeks or two or four months at worst


Watch them all and decide for yourself…

The websites were closed forever, the owners said.

I am so sad and heartbroken, as are hundreds of thousands of other people who loved the website.

Here's an article on it: https://geekculture.co/pirate-streaming-sites-kissanime-kissmanga-shut-down-permanently-as-japan-cracks-down-on-piracy/

What should be the best measures that we should take to gatekeep anime has hard as it get?
Remember, if you don't believe in gatekeeping, you are a normalgroid.

Some measures that I suggest are:
-Knowing in deep a lot about an anime, visual novel, light novel, novel, manga or game in particular.
-Having a decent knowledge about the medium.
-Being very invested into at least one work.
-Being very invested at least in one fandom.

Is not neccesary to have all these things, but at least one. What more should be added?

tldr; enemy is normalfag, there's no salvation, if you want a safe haven with high resistance towards the enemy make it arbitrarily complicated


Some of the most popular anime both in the West and the East fit what would be your kept anime, such as GitS, Evangelion, Lain and the Patlabor movies. I even believe that much of what ruined anime communities in the West was the leaning towards "meaningful", "intellectual" or "mature" anime, since people could join without being "losers", or at least being the cool losers. Any doubt will be resolved by a few youtube video essays that will arbitrarily set a standard for any requirement of thought, explanation, or reference to be understood. In the end Sazae-san, Chibi Maruko-chan, Ninja Hattori-kun, etc, are much safer, and even old shounen that didn't become particularly popular in the West will do. I think the "Japanese only" may be the closest to actually keeping people out.


Pretty much.
Thank you for the response.
The issue with arbitrary standards -and with them, arbitrary conclusions- is problematic but only provided the subject of interest is initially allowing them to be so: this means that the work in question was never really intellectual and that any interpretation of it being as, is accomplished thanks to a number of guises or references woven here and there to create a pretty convincing illusion.
So, in short, if the anime in question can allow for a possibility of an interpretation besides what the man behind it truly intends, then it was never worth considering in any titling of 'filtering machines': naturally, proceeding with this, nothing you've listed qualifies: A meaningful message, a discernible -but not so easily done- theme, a continuous motif –all of these, even when put together as they were in Evangelion, do not necessarily result in qualification.
If all it takes is a Youtuber pinning down every reference and connecting dots to curate an explanation, then, the work is not at all intellectual. No. It can't possibly be, provided the connotation I'm associating intellectual with: not accessible.

Most people, even in a literal dumbed down step by step guide into a Navier-Stokes equation, won't ever develop a means to wrap their heads around it.
Someone can go through the most careful, one to one explanation, giving an abstract of an abstract of an abstract, condensing all that matters into a few equations, shed some historical context and still, it wouldn't make sense
Here, this does the job pretty well: https://www.claymath.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/navierstokes.pdf but about nearly everyone would just ignore it entirely. That's what you need: something that inherently rouses the urge to ignore and this is only producible through complication.

Look at the other anime you've listed:
Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


It seems you are creating a circular argument:
>it has to be complicated to keep normies out
>if normies are in the reason is that it's not complicated
The term "complicated" is inherently requiring "absence of normies".

Outside of anime, do you think the fact that there are videos on youtube explaining in detail tool assisted speedruns, and also that some of them have millions of views, mean it's not something complicated enough?

Unless I musunderstood and what you really mean something to the sense of "the only place free of normalfags is in your personal perception of the object".


The whole normies bullshit will always be circular because it's a boogeyman that doesn't exist.

Share scenes from anime you like, found interesting, or that caught your attention.
You can also explain what you like or found interesting about it.

I'll begin, in this one scene, which is from an anime for kids, you can be misled into thinking that these two had sex. It gives that impression, which makes a scene that should be sad and romantic, a hilarious one.

in the Bleach anime in one of the last arcs, Sado reveals to Ichigo that what made him capable of fully activating his Fullbring is finding the source of his pride and that was none other than him being of mexican and japanese descent, so a mestizo.
He said that him taking pride in being a dark skinned mestizo is what awakened his Fullbring to its fullest potential, and asked Ichigo to find the source of his pride.
Tite Kubo must really love hispanic culture, not only did he use spanish for the entire arrancar arc but had a character's power have its source in being proud of his hispanic roots.

Creating something that even resembles it FOR FREE warrants nothing but wholesome memories, eternal healing and a longing to be like positive people who are on the RIGHT side of history like fucking Alexandra David Neel


No person even vaguely associated with theosophy is on the right side of anything in any sense.


what's the name of last manga please ?

well I guess a 2way tricot of yukikaze doesn't exist…I wish I had the best quality.
damn it I had a website with japanese websits where tons of dakimakura were selling and I don't remember it anymore fuck it


I'm sorry I worded that wrong. You just search for "character name dakimakura" and then you choose size and material in the listing. I found at least three listings with her. Can't post links here though.


why can't you post the link? you'll get banned?

It wouldn't let me post earlier, said the post looked automated


Guess it worked now


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.

I live in america and the bad whites i was referring to were not just trailer trash or skin heads. Rich white kids are utterly vile human beings. The stacys are the worst and the chads are no joke either. they are incredibally arrogant and it killed my faith in the idea that the white race was somehow more pure than the rest. Not. the only N word to be concerned about is Normies. Normies are savages.

>Using the Big 5 model of personality traits

stopped reading. That pop psychology bullshit isn't valid. Though east asians are supposedly genetically inclined to take less risks and be more reserved. I made another post on here talking about why its the only way their societies could be so orderly.


Americans are psychotic and retarded because it's where the trash of Europe was sent. In Quebec there were so little succubi for the colonists that the French government had to send some because they were all criminals. In Norway and Sweden they sent all lunatics and drunkards on a boat. The first settlers of the country were religious extremists (as drastic as that term may be). Look at the mafia. The further west you go the more mentally odd or introverted the people become as it's where the antisocial, outcasts, ill-fitting puzzle pieces and psychopaths went to escape society.


population decline is a meme and only the concern of boomer govt and their taxes
less people = more resources to go around


i see you've found another thread in which to interject your "evil boomers" nothingburgers again


Because most countries have this retarded economic system where there must be constant growth, in population and gdp, to fuel ever-increasing taxes and debt. You can't stop the growth or it will all collapse, which is inevitable because constant growth is impossible, but the public, politicians and rich demand it anyway because they care more about short-term profits than long-term stability. So the beatings will continue until morale improves.

i wish there was more uk/irish rep in anime, ik the k-on movie had them go to the uk which is really cool, but i bearly see any irish charcters other than hetaila

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.

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.
