Anime sucks
« on: January 17, 2019, 11:39:46 AM »
Am I the only one who considers the most of it a tedious rehash of Western works or ideas originated from Western culture, often degenerated into a purposeful mockery by authors?

Some examples:
Lelouch (Code geAss) = Emo prince LaCroix, complete with Dominate abuse. The series itself is pretty much a Bloodlines ripoff with melodrama instead of an actual politics.
Sora (Yosuga no Sora) = Emo Alex Wesker (Resident Evil) = Western "Aryan scientist" archetype. Japanese devil alone knows whatever she have forgotten in a borderline hentai title.
...

Ironically enough, The Illusive Man (Mass Effect 2) is a payback Lelouch ripoff (plus reverse TSM from X-Files), well done if compared to the latter. They took back what was rightfully ours.

Nah, otaku (aka anime/manga fans) aren't cancerous, at least. Wapanese, that's real trouble.

I meant Japanese wannabes aka Kuei-Jin ending, not subculture members or fans. Japanese goths aren't exactly Western wannabes either.

Ah, got it. Curiously enough, they does not seem to have a slang/slur word for the reverse of Wapanese. Not that they have less illusions, guess this sort of thing isn't tolerated in Japanese society, which is notoriously conformist.

On topic, not that the genre itself sucks, not worse than any other, it's so saturated that one could watch through ~100 titles and not hit anything remotely decent that has any individuality, not to say original, even once. The most of it is the same old song over and over, a cheap form of escapism for bored to death people who are trapped inside an inescapable life circle of Japanese society. Yet another brand of fake drugs not dissimilar to religion.

Being an anime fan in Japan is considered to be a sign of loser, and judging from its amount, 99.9999...% of Japanese are losers.

Wasn't it a Western thing originally? Not worse than pillows with Disney characters.
Not Japanese, but K-pop is quite a something that worse than yaoi, it's a streamlined version of Western Teen pop, like it needed any further streamlining. I suppose it would qualify as a creepy Eastern stuff.

Have you listened to this k-stuff? Myself could not tolerate more than a minute, and that comes from a person who watched Boku no Pico and found it funny. It's a yaoi anime from Satan's personal collection, so beyond perverted that it's impossible to take it seriously.

There's a lot of shitty anime out there.

No one would say Evangelion was a bad series though, and that's barely even the tip of the iceberg.
