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?
Fuck knows but mangadex should be back up soon.
Would you like to see a list of my favourite shounen manga (all of them), or my favorite e. g. renga novels?
I promise not to mention Nanase Inoue this time.
Also, I know this blog will probably be renamed (if not again in a week) to Posts about different stuff soon, but I also hope it stays the same.
I want this to be a sort of platform to rant and swear.
Perhaps this won't be a good reading blog but that's not my goal.
Onward to the next topic!
>mangadex is back
>new layout is modern pseudo-minimalism shit that doesn't even work without JS
>all featured manga are current-season anime
does chan even work without js?
good stuff, thanks
I miss web 1.0
Do you like Studio Ghibli films, anon?
I've been meaning to watch them. So far I've seen Spirited Away, Totoro and Grave of the Fireflies. My favorite so far is Grave of the Fireflies. How about you anon? Which one is your favorite? Do you think Earwig and the Witch will be any good?
Yes, they were the only anime I was introduced to as a child and they still hold up today. Beautiful art and stories, and the only anime I can watch dubbed.
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."
If it has not found a new producer to back it, Studio Ghibli is in danger of going out of business.
>MC gets super powers and so on, it's generic isekai
>gets a catgirl slave by killing bandits, she's horny, they kiss
>goes out, finds bandits' friends while wearing stolen bandit armor and weapons
<MC acts like a retard, ignores the "I'm going to rape your girl" implication
<gets cockblocked again and now the girl has been kidnapped
>luckily she's with another girl who is going to help her escape by kissing her and distracting the guards
<kissing another girl makes the slave hornier than the MC ever could, ruining the plan, now they're both getting groped and about to be raped
>MC crashes in and saves the day, now they're both literally fighting over who gets his dick first
<MC does nothing despite acting like horny 24/7
>MC gets a third girl, jerks off onto an evil god and turns her into the 4th
>now the four are fighting for the D
<he chooses to remove the power from the goddess to make her as weak as the others(?)
<wastes time and gets cockblocked
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.
>How is this different from western genre fiction?
The author doesn't pretend the women aren't shit while cucking the MC. Pic related.
>The author doesn't pretend the women aren't shit while cucking the MC
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.
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'm watching Haré+Guu and some Kirby: Right Back at Ya! Bretty comfy.
I didn't like the show because it was a bit too relatable for me, except for the MC dumping of "gamer words" I wasn't that pathetic
What shows with the same kind of stroyline you did like?
Well that was the only show that I watched with that kind of storyline, I heard some good thinks about Rent a girlfriend.
I'm watching that too
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.
It's good that you enjoy them, but in my countrynwe only get german, nordic, turkish or Indian telenovellas. None of them are good.
Your country doesn't have internet?
>none of them are good
I doubt it.
>This sounds like a reddit tier excuse
But isn't consumption one of the redditor virtues?
No it has.
As you think. If reading or watching is that.
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.
Let's see how long this thread lasts on this dead, boring, terrible board before it gets deleted by the (likely) absent BO.
