I don't like making /dep/ressing threads, especially on hobbyist boards like /jp/, but this has been bugging me for a long time now. Japan has always been a hot spot for foreigners, but I've noticed a lot, and I mean A LOT of people trying to invade the country recently. And to make things worse, not only will they eventually flood the gene pool, but they're going to pressure Japanese society into changing their morals as well. Don't think they wont, the Japanese are a very insecure race, especially young people that idolize shitty American pop culture. https://twitter.com/obskyr/status/1274628006103838720.

I'm so scared I'm going to live to see Japan's death before I even get to visit. I wish I could become some sort of stoic wizard samurai and kill any foreigners who plot against the country and its people, spreading propaganda. It infuriates me that eventually SJWs will be normalized in Japan, and people will still deny the fact that Japan will change, saying shit like "nawwww that wont happen" until it does. It happened to the majority of Europe, it'll happen to Nippon too.


There is a half a century worth of anime and the porn train isn't going to stop. Worst case scenario I'll find another hobby or learn drawing and make my own garbage.


Sorry to say but SJWism has already gripped the entirety of japan. One thing you might be interested in knowing is that there's no such thing as a japanese internet right-wing culture. The current japanese right-wingers are all boomers. All of them, not just the majority. The succubi are all either left-socialists that are primarily concerned with feminism or "western lovers" that try to start western style movements there all the time(including BLM for some reason, this isn't a joke). The men are all apolitical or vaguely leftwing and just go with whatever everyone else goes with. There were even mass "arab protests" in tokyo with their growing arab population protesting for halaal markets and anti-discrimination, complete with Qur'an props.
When the NGOs focus on Japan they'll just make the emperor and PM nod to social justice and the entire country will follow suit.


If they decide to adopt these “western values” then that’s their decision. Japan doesn’t need your advice, they are a sovereign nation that can decide its own affairs. If you want them not to change, be proactive like the SJWs and start making Twitter posts warning them what about sickness these people bring. If they can get an entire country to bend to them I see no reason you couldn’t just as well, instead of making impotent rage posts on /jp/.

I don't think just old people are concerned with foreigners raging against the police and burning down entire cities. During the peak of all of those raids in New York and Minnesota, there were tons of young Japanese people on twitter pissing themselves over it since that crap would never fly in Japan.


Except for old people, most Japanese people don't care about their culture just like most whites don't care about European culture anymore. Nobody in the west would care about the decline or disappearance of more European cultural traditions, in fact they would consider them patriarchal, sexist, racist, or some other thing they've been socialized to hate on instinct. This is just the same with Japan, and in fact all of Asia.
Actually it's the entire world, frankly.


>Actually it's the entire world, frankly.

this. i live in china at the moment and frankly, i sort of "missed it". traditional chinese culture is dying as the nation becomes more westernized. there are still a number of large cultural distinctions, but the gap is shrinking steadily. most nations are developing into a more homogenized global culture.


I thought there was a proven dynamic where neet men become more socially conservative


It's really just that the less a person is socialized by modern industrial society the more they approach traditional values that were normal in all cultures for thousands of years.
I think this thread has also become too political for /jp/


What do you see as traditional culture? people always talk about the lost of traditional culture but surely they don't mean for today's youth to be walking around wearing kimonos or watching Noh plays on their phone.


>I think this thread has also become too political for /jp/
True but you can't discuss this topic anywhere else on this site, or anywhere in general. It's an issue no one talks about


it's "the foreigner complaining there are too much foreigners" syndrome all over again. people loving japan for it's culture and homogeneity and wanting to move there are part of the problem and is pretty paradoxical but understandable. the question is if you're strong enough to sacrifice your own happiness to let the thing you love persist and unsoiled.

about media in general, i think cool and exciting stuff will always exist be it in japan or somewhere else and i personnaly think anime has become pretty obnoxious these last years so it would be cool to see new stuff emerge.
there is a lot of potential in the new generation of worldwide wannabe artists that grew with anime and comics that are currently on the internet, i think and i want to belive the future of visual media will come from those guys.

it's pretty funny to see how most people seems so maternal toward japan, i think i've never seen that for any other country.


I see this too lot of japanese roasties mixing with white and nigger crabs
my country is already niggerized
do we have to lose the last based country on earht to the nigger groid too?

fuck kikes


they are responsible


Anime and manga has been dogshit since the 80s. Japan's doujinshi scene is what makes the country so unique. And when I say doujinshi, i dont mean anime porn mind you. Music, games, clothing, etc. Japan is a very indie country and its traditional culture is rich as well.


>there is a lot of potential in the new generation of worldwide wannabe artists that grew with anime and comics that are currently on the internet
there really isn't, I know it sounds close minded and elitist but most zoomers are braindead and I just can't see them creating anything of value


White nationalists give the jews way too much credit.

The only thing the Jews have been good at is taking money from the white man. Them being in charge of western media is a result of this. Globalization and european immigration policy comes from white people, not jews. It has been, and always will be about the elites staying elite. The era of colonialism and national pride only existed because the only thing the ruling class had control over was their own country. The modern world allows the ruling class to basically create their own secret government that can control the world and funnel money back to the elites.


Bullshit. Gaijin can come as long he respects the stonecut traditions and pays monies.

>White nationalists give the jews way too much credit.
Is there a White people or White nation? Nationalists drive their people's autonomy and self-deternimation; in European context that is nation states.

This white-black-yellow-red -bullshit is Anglo-American creation, because both British Empire (or United Kingdom only) and especially the United States of America were multiethnic states to begin with. They never were and never can be nation states.

So American (European colonialists) Nationalism is impossible and that is why Patriotism is much more pronounced there than in Europe.
Irish Nationalism for example is possible, because there is Irish people; English Nationalism would be possible, but they were the ones to push multiethnic empire, so it's kind a moot point.

And lets keep the Jews out of this. Jewish Nationalists created the Jewish nation state and that is good and is about time. Unfortunately, Jabotinsky's Revisionist Zionism was not followed and now they have the hostile Arab element in the country, most of them post-1948 illegal migrants from Jordan.

If you're people were persecuted, massacred (for example, by none other than the 'prophet' Muhammad) and finally genocided (where large majority of world's Yiddish speakers vanished) for two millenias and you had the means and ability to promote the terror your people have suffered, would you not do so?

For example: Armenians, Don Cossacks, Finns and Ukrainians lack the means, and so that's why the Turks can go denying the genocide of Armenians (and Hellens and Assyrians) and the Muscovite's can go denying genocide of Don Cossacks and of Ukrainians and the massive ethnic cleansing of Finns.

Jews have written and collected their history longer than any other nation and that is most prominent reason why they were the first to pick up written word in newspapers, spoken and finally moving pictures, to promote their history.

And again, concerning Nipps: they don't give a shit about some American complaining about their 'objectifying' idol culture. They have pushed million times more serious social problems back to the dark and they will keep doing so to the end.


And by the way: nobody forces you to consume that media.

I have not watched television broadcasts for 15 years; I've stopped suscription to two newspapers, because instead of giving news, they started pushing ideological viewpoints; I only catch the classical music programs on my national broadcasting station (because I'm forced to pay for it! So, actually, there is that much forcing).

Instead, to get somewhat decent idea about things, I mostly read academic works (both published and those available with copies in universities) on subjects I'm interested in.
Of course, truth doesn't exist with current events: you can come pretty close to finding it (the truth) maybe 50 years after it happened, but today, because factual news have never existed.


Nothing is going to happen (at the moment) because the home population is the only one that matters. I can see where you are coming from though, more and more authors, directors and artists are expressing more liberal views into their works (Watanabe or Yukimura being such examples) but this isn't something new or anything to get flustered about. I have a hard time believing it would get on the same level of awfulness as tv american animation.


Dumb English teacher. "Traditional Chinese culture" died a long time ago and they killed it themselves (cultural revolution).


I noticed that too.


It's their problem to deal with. A Japanese American wouldn't go around telling white nativists what they should be doing.
The fact of the matter is the entire world wears Western clothing. Wearing anything else would be as impractical as wearing a Roman toga around.
Where do you see this? Even if it's happening, they're not your succubi. If Japanese men can't take care of their own, then that's on them.
Yes. It's always been Protestantism/Calvinism/Puritanism/Judeo-Christianity. The transnational elites can now farm humans more efficiently than ever before. The rulers make up their own ethnicities.
Mao was about the only one who could do it.


Indeed: burning of the archives and books of the 'pervert institute' by the German NS students was a particle of ash compared to what the Cultural Revolution destroyed. They burned entire libraries of ancient scriptures and documents and destroyed monuments that aged thousands of years.
Sounds familiar from Iraq or Syria not long back?

And of course the Red Guards humiliated, tortured, took hostage and massacred people.


The 'shame of WW2' have been tried to raise several times in Japan since the fifties, usally by Japanese Socialists, and it has always waned away and Japanese didn't start to care any more.

The Japanese 'ultra nationalist's' reaction everytime when the CCP propaganda machine spouts of something Nanjing related (mind you, I don't mean to say that the Japanese didn't plunder that city and massacred Chinese, sure they did; but the mainland always incorporates some sort of propaganda into this affair, which usually isn't even related to Nanjing or Japanese occupation, but some contemporary issue) puzzles me: why do they react, when the Japanese public doesn't show any interest?

>why do they react
they have this tendency of justifying their own imperialism as a liberating force from western powers so every little bad thing they did is probably propaganda to them, to be fair JP/Socialist China have always had a shitty relationship


>to be fair JP/Socialist China have always had a shitty relationship
Not in any meaningful things like trade: after mainland opened floodgates in the early 90's (because their trade partners ceased to exist) to trade with 'reactionary' West, business opened to Japan too.
Large majority of Japanese companies have outsourced production to mainland China, just like European industrial mights.

CCP just throws these baits ever so often, just like Russia does to its neighbours. The motives I'm interested in; why they do it, and why for example those Japanese 'ultra nationalists' react.
There is same pattern in Europe regards to Russia. I'm thinking these 'reacting' elements are on Russian and Chinese payroll, to spread confusion and polarize politics.

But of course, Communist controlled mainland remains military threat to Japan (and Republic of China and Korea) for forseeable future, but thankfully there has been positive changes in JDF in the last decade. Hopefully, they will once again have real military.


The problem here is that you seem idealize Japan like some kind of anime world on earth or an otaku paradise (it is not) Japan is a shitty country like all the other countries full of horrible people that are nothing like the cute succubi you see on anime.

weeb shit will stay the same only because it's profitable and popular.


also I find incredibly ironic (and hipocritical) that you want to keep dirty commie gaijin influence out of Japan while thinking about going there yourself with your preconceived western ideas.


I don't care about anime, samefag. The amount of indie culture Japan used to have has been ruined by kawaii uguuuuu culture.
>also I find incredibly ironic (and hipocritical) that you want to keep dirty commie gaijin influence out of Japan while thinking about going there yourself with your preconceived western ideas.
I'm not an sjw journalist kike trying to get people to sign petitions to invite more muslims and niggers into the country. I dont even give half a shit about tokyo, desu. I'm more interested in visiting the rural islands of Japan and studying their languages and dialects.

It is not just the leftist scum who are infecting Japan, right wing trash has also been infecting the country with white nationalist/white extremist ramble since Hitler's rise to power. If you're only upset of the white left infecting Japan then you're part of the white rightwing infection. All you see online is rightwing whites and white extremism using Japanese culture as a stage to further their own ideology. (4chan, 8-chna/kun/7chan etc)
I agree the ameritrash SJW garbage is also another problem plaguing Japan, as if the Japanese people HAVE to appease and guilt worship african americans because some mentally ill leftist white (and enabling jew) is upset what some mentally ill rightwing nut job did 200 years ago or is doing; Guilt Lunacy made manifest.Also niggers are useful shortsighted hypocrite tools. They screech racism when it does not suit them but are more than happy to partake in such ideology on other ethnicities if their white master throws them a bone/enables them like dogs.
This whole recipe of disaster looming over Japan is just whites with a splash if of jew, again, seeking to invade, control and destroy another country, a culture, a people reduce them to mere balkanized tools to serve the foreigners.

I agree with all of your sentiments, but putting the blame only on whites will still invite all of those foreigners that white people are supposedly trying to invite to Japan. idk culture's fucked. These days you cant even protect internet culture from kikes


>white nationalist/white extremist ramble since Hitler's rise to power.
Why so ameribot.

NatSoc's didn't pursue anything 'white', but Germanic. And Japanese since the Meiji restoration had much, much more extremist ethnic and national attitudes in mainstream.

And unlike frail Krauts, the Nipps have never bowed their heads in this regard and for them, they never did anything wrong in Korea or mainland China (I'm excluding Formosa, because that was a model colony, where the native Taiwanese people - not Chinese - actually benefitted from Japanese occupation).

And Nationalism doesn't have anything to do with 'right'; its the leftist's who since the French Revolution have pursued Nationalism.


Is mighty different, American cartoons were born shitty, they never became shit.


Oh great, social justice is finally making it's way to Japan. How long until it's major cities become awful shitholes like in Western Countries?


You don't have to sugarcoat it by calling it "SJW". This shit is leftism.


>This shit is leftism.
This is just nearing the final evolution of leftism. A mega-charizard so to speak.


Encourage them breeding to defend the culture. But that's paradoxical because it goes against the culture of escapism for losers in hentai, games, anime you weeboos are so fond of.




Japan already died in 1945. It was already westernizing after the Meiji Restoration, obviously, but the loss of the war and Occupation accelerated Americanization, and Japan slowly turned into a soulless consumerist wagecuck hellhole. I would have loved to have seen a lot of places some 200 years ago when aspects of traditional cultures, practices and dress were still actually worn on an everyday basis

It is actually Afro-Feminism.


The idoru pigs are going SJW, only a matter of time before animu does too.
Japanese translators are always such faggots that think they're so high and mighty. There's a few exceptions, like that guy that accurately translated the okama scene in Goemon 3, but of course he got bullied off the internet by resetera.

People like you are hilarious. You're scared of seeing a corpse dying and don't know a thing about the life of that corpse.

Japan has been dead since the end of WW2. It got occupied by the US and was forced to conform to US standards and culture. Traditional Japanese culture is as dead in Japan as Paganism is in Europe. The reason you like anime so much is it's American media made by Asians. Older Asian animation looks and animates nothing like anime does. Older Japanese despise the otakus because they're mass production consuming AMERICANIZED people. They think it's normal to live in tiny houses isolated from the world instead of the traditional Asian multi generation households. They have no connection to the past except for the very small edo era fetishism Americans promoted as the "safe space" for Japan to keep a "history".

Japan is no longer Japanese. And it hasn't been since before you were born. Another grey hair on a head that's already silver as the moon makes no difference.


here it comes ken-sama to give us a good chuckle.

Americans could never make something like Anime.


>I'm not an sjw journalist kike trying to get people to sign petitions to invite more muslims and niggers into the country.
yeah but since you're the nigglet expecting to be invited you should at least be thankfull to those "kike sjw journalists" making it possible.


funny thread. japan is dying because japan is killing itself. that's exactly why the (conservative) government is increasing immigration, because they realized the japanese are actually slightly below average. if you actually care about the future of japan, maybe you should learn japanese and start reading about japanese politics from the natives.


Somehow I think going to be a foreign political advocate in Japan wouldn't be taken kindly by the natives. Maybe you'd get lucky by using videos of immigrants from other countries and talking about the fall of USA and play into their natural xenophobia but who knows. You'd probably get assassinated by people that are very interested in immigration globally.


I wish someone with actual balls and some power would start a proper traditionalist movement. There is no real right wing movement. Just impotent representatives who cede to progress over time.


There's a difference between tourism and moving to Japan treating it like it's a new Brooklyn. Somalian niggers go to Shibuya to scam tourists out of their money, and those rich cracker tourists become english teachers, not because they care about their students' education, but because they want to migrate and destroy the Japanese genepool like the dirty ratfink cunts they are.


>increasing immigration
True, but in that case it's with Chinese, Koreans, and some other SEA countries, although they aren't much better.


>I'm so scared I'm going to live to see Japan's death before I even get to visit. I wish I could become some sort of stoic wizard samurai and kill any foreigners who plot against the country and its people, spreading propaganda. It infuriates me that eventually SJWs will be normalized in Japan
So you a filthy gaijin who falls into the type that japs want far away from Japan not even as tourist want to become a samurai™ to fight against the gaijins?


lol, damn, it bothers you THAT much that some wiz likes a country and doesn't want it to be destroyed? Are you some giga kike working for the UN and plotting to flood Japan with millions of nigger immigrants and come to wizchan on your time off?

I figure if it's gone in my lifetime it wasn't worth a visit. anyway.


>>french imperialism in africa: bad
I support all imperialism in Africa. Actually I hope it's Chinese since they don't fuck around. You've got a beautiful continent where you could probably live in peace with minimal life costs due to warm weather and it's lost to people occupied with war and brewing new strands of AIDS.


china is strip mining africa and killing all the cool animals just so they can press penis pills.


People, electronics, and human progress is more important than desolate wastelands and animals.


cool, but the post i was replying to sings the praises of chinese imperialism while simultaneously listing beauty as one of africa's positives, whatever causing the latter opinion is 100% being pulled out of the ground or slaughtered by the driver in the former. if you think nigger central is a wasteland now, just wait until chinks acquire all the land rights by trading african politicians BMWs.
looking up to chinks as a superior replacement to the failed west is retarded anyway. the only place they really have the west beat is in comically fake statistics, making such boldly moronic claims like covid was imported in frozen meat and they eliminated poverty just by pretending it doesn't exist. most of their "progress" is patent fraud so they are otherwise completely derivative of the west lol. hong kong and taiwan definitely weren't successful because of mainlanders. the grass is always greener elsewhere, eh?


No they are not. Nature is more important


I think the Jap NEETs and crabs are supposedly right wing socially, but not economically, which is the best combination anyway. Pretty sure they hate foreigners and especially Koreans a lot.


I think this is a schizo thread, aren't Japanese like 99.9% Japanese anyway, not like Western Europe or Jewmerica where whites are 50% and heading down fast, I don't think they are in trouble, SJW shit is all Jews/white guilt liberals in America kvetching about pedo or no diversity in anime, Japs don't give a fuck since dumb gaijin pirate all the anime the fuckers watch anyway. Anime is always and always will be made for Japanese audience, worst that will happen is some dumb gook like the guy who made Bayonetta will go on twitter and get upset at all the westerners telling him to change his anime series and tell them to fuck off and get banned.


Sony is now the owner of a big part of the anime industry, Sony went from being the company that allowed near softcore loli porn on Playstation to censor everything they touch, even in Japan.

The SJW are already thinking about how they will destroy anime, first for all foreigners, then destroy anime in general.


>Sony is now the owner of a big part of the anime industry
No they are not. Unlike Nintendo, Sony doesn't even own many of the games that bring them good will in the past. Let alone anime.

And for those who still have not seem the writing in the wall, nobody should feel pity for them.


you know sony is also an electronics and music company right? As a corporation they are much bigger than nintendo.


That doesn't matter. Nintendo in the grand scheme of things is more influential in this subculture precisily because they are more concentrated in things like videogames.


>No they are not
They actually do.


Aniplex doesn't "own" anime, the first owner of anime are the creators and authors. Who very often are the writers of light novels, novels, manga and so on, simply because they are the ones who create the original thing. When the anime itself has not "source material", then the direct creators pass to be the ones involved in the anime studio, while ownership is more complicated to determinate. While in many cases Aniplex has the distribution of some anime, they're not the only one producing it (let alone making it directly, which is on the anime studio).

Good for us, Japan doesn't replicate the way of doing things of the West. In which you will probably be in the right and one company will own almost everything, you like an author will need to comply with whatever crap the company in question comes up, or be shunned.
The way in which Japan does things is not the optimal of the ways, I think it should be more descentralized and more "indie". But it still far away from the nightmare that is the West right now. And that's one of the reason why they have anime in the first place.


They are mainly a publisher.
It is rare that they own the copywrite to the things the publish and executive produce.


The Type 10 tank (10式戦車, Hitomaru-shiki sensha) is interesting.

>The way in which Japan does things is not the optimal of the ways, I think it should be more descentralized
That is actually exactly how they do it. This guy is dumb and almost entirely wrong.

Multiple companies come together and form a production committee, which collectively owns the rights. A given company will put forth a percentage share of the investment cost depending on how they're feeling for the venture, with the company that puts in the most being billed first from the top. Lantis (before it got eaten), for example, as a music company, will be entrusted to handle literally everything music for an anime they are a part of the committee on. Marketing, production, sales, etc etc. Every single thing music. This is the case for any sort of company you can imagine sitting at the table, from licensing, distribution, music/sound, broadcasting, goods production, etc etc. Once they've determined that, they will then contract an animation studio to produce it, provided one isn't at the table ponying up money themselves. In the case of the former, the animation studio doesn't own jackshit and has been paid for their work before they even start doing it and that's it.

This system enables anime to be made on the cheap considering cost per company, and almost guarantees returns even on the shittiest of anime; some portion of it, at least, will probably sell enough to recoup costs, eventually. And if not, it's all whatever, they only paid a portion of the upfront.

It's a fantastic model.


I wasn't saying that Japan didn't have a descentralized model, I said that it should be more descentralized and indie like. Of course the model they have now is good and vastly superior in everything to how things are normally done in the West. What I was saying is that it could be even better by putting even more power in the hands of the artists. I thought I was being very clear with that. So calling me dumb is rude.

My apologies, I interpreted it as implying there is no decentralization at all.

>What I was saying is that it could be even better by putting even more power in the hands of the artists

Like it or not, anime is made by a multitude of animators that mostly serve as little more than drawing monkeys. Though it's pumped out on the regular, each and every week, it's still gargantuan million dollar projects involving hundreds of people across all sorts of industries. It'd be ludicrous to accredit each and every artist or afford them undue authority. They have a paying job and exposure, what more do you want?

I don't know how it works for manga, but common sense would say they partially or fully sell their rights to the publisher. Makes sense, since the publisher is footing the bill and legwork on getting it out there. It's just business. At least bigwig mangaka can negotiate a more favorable contract though, such as the guy who does HxH, or Eiichiro Oda. At this point, I'm pretty sure Oda can tell Jump to do whatever the fuck he wants and they'll bend over backwards to accommodate.


I'd be careful if I were you. Posting two anime succubi hugging with the filename "me and you" is liable to get a certain caffeinated individual hoppin' mad.




The only Japan I care about is the one from 1968-2003 that I can see on my computer in mangas, movies, shows, etc. So idgaf about the IRL one


Yep. The NEETs, the irrelevant ones. Not the real people who go outside and live day by day or run the country.


This reply is a bit late.
>My apologies
Don't worry.
For the rest of what you say, the thing is simple. Artist are the ones who give us art. With artist we get anime, games, books, and so on, without them, we don't. Suits, in the West, more often than not, are leechers. Again, in Japan things are better (you already gave two examples but they have much more than that, the dōjin scene being a primary example) and suits are maybe not that bad. But still is always important to have everything in it's place. And artists always has a high one.


I wonder how many "k-pop stans" criticize Japanese idols in that manner.


Japan will die soon anyway since they aren't having any kids… infact there are more pets in Japan than kids, imagine that. In a few years they'll have no choice but to import a shitload of immigrants to keep the country running and to pay for the eldery japs. Europe is also going this way but in a slower pace.


How much immigrants do you think needs to be imported to a replace for one of the top ten most populated country? 150 million people and replacement rate is at 1 per 2 person. So import what? Like some 75 million people?
I never understood this immigration meme, its pointless unless you are living in some city state or your population is in few millions like in Canada or Australia where most people live clustered around a tiny strip of land as rest of the region is uninhabitable.
And thats exactly what happens in much of Europe and America. Most of the immigrant population clusters around few cities whose standards of living are rapidly declining due to them reaching peak population capability decades ago.
They might 'impede' the economic decline for some time because the current state of world economy is such that they are focused around a few cities but the0re is no indication they are needed to 'look after the elderly'. Most of the population outside of these few cities too suffer from similar demographic decline and they seems to be getting on well without any need of importing of immigrants.


>american imperialism in europe: bad
Honestly American imperialism in Europe is pretty much the only reason why Eurocucks can act like such insufferable smug liberal idiots. I would love seeing Eurocucks to be abandoned by muttlanders so that they will be left to their own vices and then realize that they aren't so high and mighty as they imagine themselves to be.

I am not sure if the goblina who wrote this is joking or actually do see the uglification of art for the purpose of uniqueness a good thing. Also sexualization of minors is pointless because the story could say they are studying in a college and not minors and I don't think it would impact the show so much or change her reaction to it. Man I miss western cartoons from 90s and 80s which didn't have such blatant uglification.


> Man I miss western cartoons from 90s and 80s which didn't have such blatant uglification.
Because rugrats, rin and stimpy, ah real monsters, etc weren't shows will similar ugly on purpose looks from the 90s

Western animation has always had a huge variation in style from show to show and studio to studio.


Most of the shows you have listed out are comedic and gag based and rarely took itself seriously. I can honestly get behind such a style being used in a gag based show. Even if its anime, such as Shinchan.
I love much of Hanna Barbara shows of that era and most of them were drawn in similar style too.
That is not how much shows these days produced in similar style are, where even serious shows drawn in such a manner. Its such a break of immersion seeing these ugly blobs talk seriously about muh meaning of life and doesn't make me take the show seriously.


>Most of the shows you have listed out are comedic and gag based and rarely took itself seriously.
2 out of 3 of the shows I mentioned do not fit that description.
> I love much of Hanna Barbara shows of that era and most of them were drawn in similar style too.
Doesn't look anything like what you were talking about. Hanna Barbara shows ranged the full gambit of show format and content, with there own very destictive inhouse style that isn't similar to any other studios.

>That is not how much shows these days produced in similar style are, where even serious shows drawn in such a manner.

What shows?
>Its such a break of immersion seeing these ugly blobs talk seriously about muh meaning of life and doesn't make me take the show seriously.
Do you have any examples?

I suspect you are pretty ignorant of western animation in general as your blanket statements seem totally off base and any detail you seem to mention is dead wrong.


Ren and stimpy, ah real monsters, and rugrats were all comedies no?



Japan is a long defeated nation. What happened after WWII was a shame and humiliation that the collective Japanese psyche could never possibly recover from. They recovered economically, yes, massively. But they have been America's cuckold since 1945 with no possible recourse.

The Japanese "culture" that you idolise is really only a small subculture that caters to your particular hobbies and tastes. The average Japanese person secretly despises you, OP. They always have. Who can blame them?


Rin and stimpy was a comedy.
Rugrats was a slice of life/adventure show that didn't stick with a single genera.
Ah real monsters also didn't stick to a defined genera but was closer to kid horror or horror lite then a straight comedy.
Somewhat similar to say monster house.


Rug rats was comedy and hardly SOL from my memory anymore than any other artoons of the time were. True SOL seems to be an anime thing I would love for SOL movies to exist with no active dialogue or plot but maybe nature movies exist where there is no narrator or any real direction and just a display of animals doing their thing.


I would actually agree with him that rugrats is SoL. There's no overarching plot, no goal for the kids to achieve, they just kinda find things to do. However in SoL they usually focus on doing mundane tasks, while in rugrats they go on small adventures as the episode demands.


"Traditional Chinese Culture" was on life support after the May Fourth movement. It didn't take much to finish it off, both in the PRC and ROC.


Qing culture isn't traditional Chinese culture. That's like saying Mughal culture is traditional Hindu culture.


How is it an SOL if they go on adventures? it isn ot like non non biyori where stuff happens but does not happen and is episodic in nature with the show wrapping its self contained story up by the end.


Because they're all toddlers. The adventures they go on are mundane by nature. Only the imagination of the children provides any fantastic elements.


That second run-on sentence was totally scatterbrained.
It has nothing to do with anything and barely makes any sense when self contained.
Are you drinking?

Anyway, slice of life isn't a anime exlusive thing. In-fact I could list several weaster cartoons that could easily fit the bill as SOL.

Doug, Hey Arnold, Arthur, Caillou,Franklin, and the list goes on.

Anyway, rugrats was always more about the babies playing poorly supervised and not about relying on gag comedy.


>Doug, Hey Arnold, Arthur
Nearly everything is a slice of life in your eyes marvel movies are just super hero slice of life come on! how are you deeming them slice of slice when they have plots and forumlaic? Hey Arnold always had a plot and stuff happens.


I am thinking you don't actually know what slice of life even is as a genra.


I watched a lot of SOL whats next you will say Saving private ryan is a slice of life military movie.


Watching something doesn't mean you understand something.
Because clearly you don't.


In that case "Traditional Chinese Culture" died in 1644 when Wu Sangui opened the gates and let the Manchus in.

..b-but it is


That show doesn't have a story structure anyway similar to Saving Private Ryan.

Who has the energy to even care about this shit anymore?


Why do normalfags get so upset when they discover that the people who sold themselves for fame and wealth - had to actually give up something in exchange?
Do they really think scouting agencies just pick up random people off the street to make them rich and famous like some kind of Chad/Stacy lottery?


>why do normalfags do X
Good way to find the answer would be to ask normalfags


Did you mean to post this somewhere else?


Even IF some of that happens over time, it will still be worth a visit. Because I don't engage in Japanese politics.
Especially if I'm on a visit there myself. Most things will stay as I know them till I die.

Also this
For me it's the media of the 80s and 90s … till ~2007 or 2010 at maximum. After that, the whole world went bonkers.

And I enjoyed all that was to enjoy and for that I'm greatful. I'm just a Wizard, I take what I get.

>Kadokawa had their manga refused by Google's and Apple's examination
>Potentially changing their manga for what considers appropriate or not
I hate this era we live in.


I think it's time for Google and Apple to face examination by the Chinese Public Administration committee. We need a new international standard to ensure the actions and policies of Google align with the values of the world's biggest market in the fight against extremism and exploitation.


One of the main reasons why manga and anime is so beloved outside of Japan is because is literally the opposite of mainstream western crap. And all the fans are aware of this.

Anyone who mess with this is going for one rude awakening.


So that's why new dragon maid has shit design?
