>The hypothesis that society will reach a peak of harmonious functioning when each of its divisions efficiently performs its designated function, as a body's organs individually contribute to its
general health and functionality, lies at the center of corporatist theory.

>”it means a nation organized as the human body, with each organ performing its individual function but working in harmony with the whole” - Oswald Mosley on corporatism


The basic premise of the anime ‘Cells at Work’ is to portray the human body as if it were a human society, which unintentionally means it represents fascism. The viewer isn't even aware he's being fed fascist propaganda because they think they're just being educated about how the human body works.

I recently heard some anons say that Berserk is the best manga ever created. So I'm going to be reading it.
I haven't read that much manga in the past. Mainly because I'm a lazy faggot that prefers to watch something instead of reading it. However there are times where a manga can't be replicated in an anime and vice versa. The mangas that I've read so far are proof of that (Goodnight PunPun and some of Junji Ito's stuff). Besides Berserk I also have Chainsaw Man and Futari Solo Camp (Don't know what this one is about but the female protagonist is hot as fuck) on my list.
What have you been reading?
Anything you recommend?

Wow, this thread is as dead as my habit of reading manga. Somehow too often characters look to me as samefacey palette swaps. Maybe I'd read something new if it were looking as outlandish as Homunculus or as filled with sexual tension as Sundome. Something different enough for this jaded oldfag typing in an abandoned thread.

Checkout the Kikoushi Enma OVA. The original series is a slapstick comedy that fits "over-the-top weird." It's honestly a shame, because the OVA is something else. The main characters are youkai who track down demons that have escaped from hell. MC is a brooding edgelord, with a sexy yuki-onna partner, and a... kappa sidekick. Definitely dark and gorey, but it doesn't hit you over the head with jump scares, except for one don't make me post it wew with a focus more on atmosphere, mystery, and psychological horror. Also possibly the best use of CG I've seen, it's used sparingly in the first episodes, but the last episode uses a full on silent hill pre-rendered environment. At least it enhances the surreal uncanny nature of the mansion, and honestly, I like it. Even if it looks a little dated it fits really well. Not the low frame-rate, five-minutes-in-blender garbage being done nowadays.

I watched Minami Kamakura Koukou Joshi Jitensha-bu (including the Taiwan special), also known as Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club. Here are my thoughts:

The title of this anime accurately describes the content. There's minimal 'filler' material in here – the screentime is nearly always focused on cycling in some way. I appreciate anime that consistently stick to their theme, unlike so many other highschool anime which devolve into formulaic episodes unrelated to the show's main selling point. Minami Kamakura Jitensha-bu could be described as formulaic as well, in the sense that the storyboard is what you'd expect for a show about novice cyclists, but at least you won't have to suffer through a culture-festival episode or a typical beach episode. I was apprehensive about the highschool setting but thankfully there's barely any classroom screentime in this. As you might expect, various landmarks in the Kamakura region are featured throughout the cycling activities. It does sometimes feel like a thinly veiled tourism advertisement, albeit not overly so and my enjoyment was never impeded by this.

I liked the brief live-action segments that play at the end of each episode. They mostly consist of various cycling-related conversations in a bike shop. These live-action segments are both informative and cute and I enjoyed them, especially because they seemed endearingly loosely scripted. This anime is fairly educational for cycling – although I already knew much of

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.
