>>2177 You should really use nyaa.si for anime and stuff. It's by far the best source. sukebei.nyaa.si has jav, hentai, and eroge if you need that stuff.
>>1345 I just started watching it, I'm on episode 3. It started out rather slow with little going on. The setting is weird as fuck, and weird shit is going on. It's hard to stay engaged when you don't understand anything and your getting dribbles of new things going on. I'll keep watching, just to see what the fuss is about.
I watched lain for the first time in 2016, and to me at the time I drew a lot of connections with the politico-cybernetic dimension of social life and I think lain was actually supposed to be more of a speculation about how we would relate to the internet as a collective group in the future. For example, to most people outside of 4chan before 2016 the alt right probably seemed like something mysterious and contingent to them, kind of like lain at her computer, but as time went on physical outbursts occurred in the more obvious public space that were the result of these mysterious contradictions in the internet, laymen started to become aware of what places like 4chan are and how the internet is cultivating Nazi terrorism at a crazy scale. As a student of Hegel I think the parallels between Lain and the alt-right are because they’re both a very dialectical motion from things that once seemed contingent and mysterious becoming necessary and unavoidable in the public consciousness, in particular for the case of the internet and how it relates with the rest of public collective experience. I think even today a lot of the people are unaware of how they’re being ideologically manipulated by algorithms and driven into an ignorance that might result in an eventful outburst in the real world again, changing our Zeitgeist and making us more aware of these same contradictions. Lain to me is more or less an allegory for a Badiouan truth-event that the internet experiences as a subject.
>>2429 >alt right Eh, look. I can understand how you can connect the two, but I would say that you are describing a different phonomena. Or, maybe an entirely different phonomena, but a different expression of the phonomena. SEL captured the zeitgeist of the Internet as it was unfolding upon society. It was incredibly presient- still is- yet it couldn't have possibly predicted an explosion of human activity. The wired is active, its algorithms subconsciously affect the majority of us in ways we can barely perceive, but in SEL, its effects are subtle. Very withdrawn. The world is sleeping while change is at work. This indicates it is in transition, and I feel like this is what SEL captured. But, perhaps not what happened after. It did however get it right with the Knights of the Eastern Calculus though. I looking back at what Lain got right.
>>2429 >As a student of Hegel bruh

Ideas For Anime おたく 08/17/2020 (Mon) 06:04:47 No. 2413 [Reply] [Last]
I know you have them. People are very creative, and though they may not be develop their ideas to fullest, these ideas can be still be shared. Even if it's or you're spitballing, write them down here.
>>2413 Anime on the setting of Haiti from 1957 to 1971 but Voodoo is actually real, the protagonist is a Spaniard and the Antagonist is "Francois Duvalier" black president in likeness and character of Barrack Obama but named something like "The Black Mumbai" The first series is going to be as Sekaist as hell where the Blacks overran the Spaniards and killed off the protagonist's family with black magic. JFK was shot due to the black Mumbai's Magic and the Cuban rescue party sent to rescue the orphaned Spaniard was wiped out due to the Black Mumbai's special op team called the Kenyan Tigers. (the weapoins the cubans had were AR-10's and the weapons the Tigers had were FN FAL's with Voodoo engravings etched into them). Near end of first season god grated the orphan special superhuman powers and it turns to a Mahou shojou/shonen anime. Second season had the Protag tried to avenge the death of his family by killing the Black Mumbai, after that failed he receives the ability to go back in time and save all the Spaniards of Haiti and by extension his family, after trying to stop the election of the Black Mumbai for the umpteenth time he decided that instead the Spaniards had to begin a Exodus and thus worked for that goal, after this failed he instead tries to keep his family alive long enough to be rescued by the Cubans. He managed to do this but at the cost of his own life. Second season end.
>>2413 14 year old kid kidnapped in 1993 in Eastern Ukraine, gets abducted into this child sex ring, be brought and used by Boris Yeltsin then sold off to the Clinton Foundation. After living in america and a personal plaything by the Clinton's found out a larger conspiracy.

Managed to get captured by the creatures before losing consciousness in the catacombs.

Then trains him to be a gurrella fighter in Afghanistan, he then converts to Islam, he escaped and then got involved in the conflict in Chechnya in 1996 and joins the Conflict on the side of the separatists fighting insurmountable odds. Got caught in a blast from a thermobaric warhead in a building in Grozny. Was permanently scarred. Then escaped behind Russian lines through a combination of hitchhiking and taking trips to neighboring countries, avoided the reptiles. Ended up back to his hometown to search for his family. Finds no sign of them. Asked around and found a tidbit of information from a local policemen, that they were taken to a unmarked facility in Kiev. Managed to sneak into unmarked facility guarded by the shape shifting Reptiles. Realized it was a node to a underground facility. Managed to sneak into underground facility. Realized the untimely demise of his whole family by the leader of the Reptiles, Alex Jones (idk, just fill in something). Then get's locked up and put into a cage to be sent to George Bush's personal Estate. Get injected cocaine in eyeballs. escaped during 9/11.. okay I ended it there. You guys can pick up the story.

JoJo Mr. Steal Yo Girl 08/15/2020 (Sat) 23:10:15 No. 2375 [Reply] [Last]
Anyone wanna theorycraft for JoJolion Chapter 100? Can't believe it's gone on for nearly 19 years, but that's just how serialized publication be.
Lmao there's people who still give a shit about jojolion?
>>2375 I'm like 3 chapters behind rn, hang on
>>2395 >>2375 Ok I'm caught up. Not gonna lie I was laughing my ass off at some of that Rock Human history/worldbuilding shit. I guess they'll figure out a way to beat 'Wonder of U.' I don't know where it really goes from there. I think Araki forgot about momma Higashikata and she doesn't actually have secret conspiratorial plot relevance, cause it seems like Tooru and Joubin/Momgashikata woul be diametrically opposed, assuming Momgashikata and Joubin are actually on the same team and Araki didn't forgot about her like so many other characters this part. Anyhow, I think this fight is honestly shaping up to be super cool, but I feel as if Jojolion hasn't been particularly compelling as a whole for quite some time.

>>2265 term commonly interchanged with 3dcg for anything that's animated with 3d models in an animation engine rather than done traditionally or in digital 2d
>>2268 I believe the abbreviation you're looking for is "CG", for computer graphics.

>>2219 Chinese plot and cash + Japanese animation is best bro combo. The Chinese are famous for their heavy novels and ability to aim for big ideas, while the Japanese are best technical workers, if given enough money https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-b6rdyIJsY
>>2270 CGI is also valid for Computer Generated Imagery but is mainly used for live action tv.

What does jojo's Part 1 say about class division おたく 08/07/2020 (Fri) 21:36:56 No. 2209 [Reply] [Last]

>>2214 2bh it's not completely clear. The Joestar mansion looks like a noble sort of aristocratic estate, but George could have just been a rich English merchant. I believe the implication is that they're nobility though, since Jonathan is just such a 'noble and too pure' sort of idealistic character. >>2209 But for OP, what >>2210 is best in my eye; Jojo is too goddamned fucking stupid for there to be any overarching themes of class, even in a subliminal way. I honestly doubt Araki could even comprehend the notion of economic class. Dio is quite literally comically evil just for the sake of being so, and is not meant to be reflective of any particular type of human in general: Dio or DIO, he in particular is just an evil fucking bastard simply because he is so don't bother questioning it. And so is his dad. SPEEDWAGON on the other hand is also a 'underclass dreg' sort of character, but he is the complete inverse of Dio. He has honor and respect, he doesn't screw over everyone possible to get the upper hand. He is a good person who also happens to be a leader of a mugging crew because he 'has to be' or whatever to provide for his family that was mentioned in one line. So Araki is transcendently apolitical, but that doesn't mean he's actually injecting reactionary messaging I don't think; I'm fairly certain that he really just is that way.
>>2209 The most evil fuck imaginable such as Dio only becomes a danger if he gets into power. The Joestar family's bourgeois naivete is very much responsible for letting Dio get worse and worse. I'd like a fanfic exploring what would happen if the Joestars just peaced out on the Brandos. Would Dio have become more like an evil version of Speedwagon? Would someone else get corrupted by the mask eventually? There's little to no class commentary in JoJo. Whenever something like Nazis show up it's always stupid, comical and over the top. I wouldn't bother going looking for a profound subtext
Why are you retards making a new thread when there is already a Jojo thread?
>>2215 Them being aristocrats would tie in nicely with the Joestar blood theme.
>>2209 Nice analysis bro, ever considered setting up a youtube channel?

What have m/a/nga have you been reading lately, /anime/? For me personally it was probably Beastars and Chainsaw Man, both until the last released chapter at the time and i haven't gotten to reading them again. Both are fairly enjoyable and interesting, although fair warning that the latter is rather angsty. It has some nice character designs, though. Spoiler for body horror.
