Is it just me, or does anime, even when aimed at adults, delve a lot less than other artistic mediums (even Western cartoons, much less live-action Western television) into social or political commentary? Hoping less for a political debate and more for why anime, even compared to other forms of entertainment, tends to avoid engaging with real-world issues even in a fictional context.
Pictured are two exceptions to the rule (one with a broadly left-wing message and one with a broadly right-wing message), feel free to agree or disagree with my interpretation.
Because not everything has to be about the real world with random authors/directors aiming to preach their stances to you under an "entertaining" veil. That's just bullshit. If you can't understand this then don't bother with anime.
politics in japan is a largely uninteresting affair as it's basically a one party system.
Whats more interesting in cultural circles is work, literature/media, social issues and different hobbies. when you have a largely homogenious population the politics gets very dull. imagine if all of america was white suburbanites from georgia, you'd have very little in actual political debate as most people would believe pretty much the same thing. it's sorta like that in japan.
But seriously, Jun is probably gonna just run away again. Hoping for some development somewhere. It seems like Misuzu is gonna win the Tomo-bowl at this rate.
What if the Jojo anime looked exactly like the OPs being in CG? Would you like it the same way?
Nah, an entirely CG JoJo, though it may be able to avoid being off-model, would take far too long to create on a consistent basis. All the environments, characters, effects, and poses would require tons of work, work that couldn't possibly match the intros.
So I just watched Conqueror of Shamballa. The show was freaking amazing, I was hooked from start to finish especially as its my first anime But the ending twist regarding the Gate was freaking retarded.
Then the movie was even dumber.
I mean, at the end, the Ed decides that since he's on Earth for good he needs to fight its wars. And it's about to be WWII. And he lives in Germany. Does this whole freaking amazing story of two brothers trying to survive and make up for their mistake end with them dying in Russia after Hitler went full idiot?
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
This is good to hear. I haven't really looked up the differences between 2003 and Brotherhood for fear of spoilers but that was my biggest concern.
Don't. Ed in the real world is as retarded as it sounds.
I want Illya to sit on my face!

Was Non Non Biyori not popular enough for a third season?
It is popular enough, but there aren't enough chapters left to make a third season since it is a monthly and Silver Link adapted almost everything except a few chapters and the rest of the Okinawa trip.
inb4 someone suggests an anime original only season
>Not Meme Girls
It's popular, but there is not enough manga material for it. In fact the only way they could get s2 off the ground to begin with were several anime original eps to pad out what's available.
