Dragon Ball both the original and Z and Pokemon were a big part of my childhood. Watching Dragon Ball reruns and some of the movies was all did at one point, and playing Pokemon Red while watching the anime was really fun. Bulma and Misty were my first faps too. I've have been rewatching the first season of Pokemon and it's pretty comfy. It holds up pretty well. I also used to watch a lot of Heidi and Digimon. I need to re-watch Heidi though since I haven't watched it since I was a kid.

I don't think Ghibli films are meant for adult men, even teenagers, as the imagery is quite dark, and there are a few fights. It's for children.

The best way to describe it is that Ghibli films are the children of Pixar films and Disney films. They're fun, they're adventurous, there are happy endings. They're ideal for kids but then there's something for adults called real life, and that's something very sophisticated. The quality of this so called real life is very high and a mere capitalistic Ghibli movie is, so to speak, a splatter of shit. If you go to Japan, if you buy a ticket to the movie theater, there's a huge queue of children. It's unbelievable, and their parents are so happy to see them there. But if you don't have kids, it's fine.
But of course, you can't compare any two films. One is a cultural masterwork and one is a stupid cartoon. But the Japanese audiences aren't very cynical. They think they're being cynical, but they're not. For us, that is exactly what a real critic would say. So, there are definitely limits in our language. So while I think that the critics of the Ghibli are wrong in their overall praise, I understand that life isn't a race, and Ghibli films are created by adults, but they're just money making machines, no love there.

Mr Hashimoto, who worked at Studio Ghibli for 20 years and said he was deeply saddened by its closure, thinks it is a pity that such a thing has happened.

He said that unlike films like "The Godfather", which were created with only adults in mind, Mr Hayao Miyazaki and his team of animators never forgot the young.

Mr Hashimoto added that at the end of the day, they were just puppeteers - there were so many hands that led to the final product.

Mr Hayao Miyazaki died last year, aged 76, leaving behind a body of work that was lauded in Japan and internationally.

On its Facebook page, Studio Ghibli said that it will "transition to other projects."

But where?

If it has not found a new producer to back it, Studio Ghibli is in danger of going out of business.

I understand the cock blocking and the MC not actually fucking anyone in most stories, the part where all the girls get fucked in all holes by a slime before he has even touched them is what confuses me. 
If you want more lewd just have the MC do it and get cockblocked, if you don't want to cross the line why have some nigger do it instead?
How is this different from western genre fiction? Here, you are confronted with an endless variety of cultural projections onto a wide variety of other cultural projections: The Europeans come from cultures where men are expected to marry women; these are powerful cultural norms which reach far beyond the cultures of Europe and the western world. These expectations may make for more sophisticated fiction. You can make a long list of some of western literary masterpieces such as Alexandre Dumas, Emile Zola, Romain Rolland, Countess Maria Sibylle Szilárd and Jorge Luis Borges. While we’re still examining these literary works, the notion of ethnic identity is totally absent. The protagonist of a Greek tragedy is always a Greek man and the protagonist of a French novel is always a French man. Even when the protagonist does not identify as one ethnicity, he is usually an educated middle-class citizen of a Western society.

What the fuck are you talking about?
My response to that would be that while trash, they are still human beings. Just because the author doesn't necessarily like that fact doesn't mean it's the same for everyone. So I read on to see what "she" had to say.

She says:

Some people absolutely hate their vaginas. They can't stand the sight of their own body parts. They look at their vaginas with disgust. They have often thought of amputating it. But on the other hand, some women find their vaginas disgusting as well. And their reasons for hating their vaginas are not as different from what men hate their penises for. They are the same reasons.

Now let me go ahead and be clear. I do not agree with her. She does not understand the concept of the connotation that every human penis has. As a male, I do not believe that the mere concept of a penis (or any genitals for that matter) is disgusting. It may look disgusting, but it's not. Human genitals, in fact, are beautiful. In fact, they have been created by God and for a very special purpose. We each have one. Many people, when they first discover this, develop a fascination with the parts, many of which are highly sensitive. Some develop a fetish for them, for reasons ranging from a certain flavor of manhood to sexual healing. And many feel that they are the most masculine of the body parts because they were the first part of the human body to start to develop in our creator's image.

I've been watching Hunter X hunter even though I'm not a big fan of shoushit. I was expecting it to be a massive borefest that normalfags and nostalgiafags both overhyped, but in the end I'm personally enjoying it so far than I did watching One Piece or Fairy Tail. I've gotten up to Episode 41 and things are looking more promising than the Hunter Exam and Heaven Arena arcs.

Why there aren't much alternative or even just historical and even less war themed anime or mangos. There are few. I mean nearly everything feels the same in modern animus. Nearly every season there is an isekai trash, yuri anime and some other unintresting trash. 
Why they cannot be a more darker war themed story with a more gritty artstyle? Or maybe an adaptation of a western story like southern victory and stuff like that?

>t. I've only seen british historical telenovelas.
.. and, what can I say, I loved it.
But then again, I love historically based telenovelas.
My top three include La Reina del Sur (The Queen of the South) - which I know this isn't even a drama.
but I love it.
It's better than soap operas.
There is much to like.
I like the characters and they're not all stereotypes.
The episode two, episode three of this telenovela takes place during my Mexico time frame (a year after Joana's death).
I've started to watch it and it's alright.
It does have some romantic scenes but it's a good and clean show and makes me feel good for about 5 minutes.
I can't wait for more.

so the first BO couldn't take it or something. I don't know why since know he hasn't responded to me. The /vhs/ BO has stepped up so I've deputized him as a mod and will give him ownership should he last longer not hard. He is in charge of making the rules and enforcing moderation.

Please keep all drama related discussion contained here, and let's try this again.

Why are you such a coward?
SJWeebs latch on to it and yaoi/fujo anime because its the closest thing they would get to the woke anime. Also, Japan thinks lesbians are a meme at least for now but some (((people))) might change that.
I don't know if it's some conspiracy but I agree that it'd be nice to see a normal relationship handled well, but like you said, for some reason most writers assume normal couples are more interesting during a painful courtship, while homos have interesting/fetishistic relationships. There are of course exceptions, but overall yuri gets special treatment/the express train. I don't even need the normal ship be expedited - just don't drag it for the whole series. See the struggle how they treat each other and are seen differently by old friends after. Explore how dating isn't what they expected and don't actually know what was supposed to change. Get into fights they normally wouldn't have. Maybe even break up. There's so much wasted opportunity, but apparently writers can make up a whole world, but a normal relationship is too foreign to them.
Right then I've kept my word I'm going to watch some yuri for the next time I have to call this type of anime trash anime.

Is it a form of degeneration or just another form of morality?

No, in fact as far as I can tell it is the newest form of feminism. As men it seems that if a female wants to get into the homosexual relationship she needs the support of the male. The male can claim the female as his wife or the female can claim the male as her husband. This puts a male into the situation of being with the woman he's married to and a female into the situation of being with the male she's married to.

What do I think? It's disgusting. Is it gay? No. Is it degenerate? Well that depends on the person. But I can't say that what is happening is a good thing.

To be completely honest with you the person would have to be an avid homosexual and or a feminist. Then I would definitely ask them to educate me and bring my mind to reality. How can a person possibly be promoting the only acceptable form of morality in which a male is not allowed to be heterosexual in the western world?

Do I think it's wrong for the girl to have sex with the male while the boy is present? Yes, I do, but that's a very interesting thing to discuss on it's own and it might just get into a longer discussion than I think I could handle.

As far as I know that's the only form of sexual relationship I have in my understanding. What would I do if a girl forced the boy into a sexual relationship? I think I might be the first one to go tell the girl that it is wrong, but the truth is no matter what I do the girl is going to push that boy further and further away.

When I think of surreal anime and shit like that, I think Sentou Yousei Yukikaze or Serial Experiments Lain, I kinda understand the plot of Yukikaze but for Lain I'm at episode 7 and I still don't undestand get it :^). 
So why I'm watching something that's a bit hard to understand for me well I like the unique that vibe and feeling they give you, the visual the sounds they always try something unique and they give you this surreal feeling, and especially love Lain because the worlds seems familiar but it isn't everything about is awkward, it's feeled with long scenes with just ambient sounds or characters just staring at each other the same goes for Yukikaze. 
I'm not sure how I can explain it but I like these type of anime.

bh I don't want a perfectly made story where nothing upsets me. It's a show where everything has a funny angle and has that air of mystery (well it kinda has that since it's a melodrama, what can I say). It's kinda like Parasyte in a way, you want to know what's gonna happen next, but you can't tell for sure. So yeah I'm curious about the storyline and who it's about. I can tell you this, I'm gonna start watching Hana Yori Dango soon! Hopefully it won't be as disappointing!

I haven't read the manga but the "animated" adaptation released this month. Man, I haven't laught out loud at a anime for a while. Surprising considering Shitflix is involved. The timing is great and the comedy is so good. If you don't know what it is about is basically a Yakuza is a househusband. The humor it's pretty similar to some bits in Nichijou. It's a shame it might be the most poorly animated anime out there. I know modern anime doesn't shine in this field but jesus christ it's like I'm watching the manga with a voice over. However It didn't ruin my experience with it and I definitely recommend giving it a pirate.
I prefer my comedy in video form because I think it works better that way but I'll have to check out the manga and see how it compares and if it's better.

But it made me haha because of the juxtaposition of a yakuza in everyday situations of a househusband.
I'm surprised Shiho really takes to him though.

He is a chaste type of guy, and really doesn't have much choice because Shiho's parents are super rich and won't let her leave the house, but I guess for some reason they have hit it off!

Let's see.

Kikuoka, the antiques dealer?

I don't think I want to take him to the Osaka park anymore though!


Still funny, and maybe a little scary.
