i wanna be those artists with tons and thousands of views and comments which means like…tons of sales too
how to? i dont have their style of course, but something similar and i wish to have/build the audience for it i guess


Do you mean selling commissions on twitter or officially employed by anime company?


either one looks good with the same benefit i guess? but these days you need solid portofolio to be employed so i can only start from…i dunno, what do u think should i do?

I started watching NGE, every time I mention it to someone they say that the last two episodes sucked/are memes?

Ray Blanchard is a man who researches sex and shit. He says that anime turns you gay, turns you into a transgender, turns you into a transvestite. Going by the track record of weebs, troons and femboys, there is a good chance he was right.

Does he scare you otakus? He is the demon with in your deepest, darkest nightmares? Does his sooths scare you and make you fear the inevitable, that all weebs will troon out and cut their dicks off

i don't know much about blanchard's theorizing and should probably read about it to understand if there is any nuance to it, but first thoughts about the anime actually makes people gay sentiment seems like a forced meme to troll and bait oversensitive weebs with and not much else.

i could see how some who dive head first down the moe rabbit hole might be closeted, even to themselves, and since there are a lot of teens into anime fandom… well, they probably don't all really know what they want at that point in their lives anyway. so, they would probably go queer or troon out with or without anime obsessions. it would just be some other catalyst that would lead them to know what they already knew, but didn't yet know that they knew. and also hikki neet types who are already damaged in terms of identity and then go trans as an attempt to cope simply because it is now an option popularized in the mainstream media.

again, just first thoughts, but i also imagine that publishing some pseudo-scientific theory about anime being a cause of gender bending and not just a medium with sub-genres that latent gender benders are attracted to would be published at this point in current year simply because it would garner attention and that attention would benefit the author, not because their was any substance to it. psychology and social sciences are full of that type of filler. any theory that can possibly be postulated will be postulated in the pursuit of publication, regardless of it's merits.

TLDR - just because more trannies played with dolls and girly toys as a kid does not mean that all childrens toys makes you gay, but you might be able to gain some notoriatty and cash in on publishing a paper that makes such a claim.


File: 1631741432436.jpg (1.16 MB, 1641x2344, 1629787287900.jpg)

I fapped to tranny porn before I found anime. Now I only fap to girls, tomboys, fit girls, and monster girls. Anime has made me straighter and I'm growing stronger.


these places were pretty much human traffic slave rape dungeons, im not defending trannies but anybody who thinks psych wards were good should be shot.


The trends was already established prior to anime and manga with movies and porn.

The fact is that watching too much of cool women (with beauty) doing cool stuff (male stuff) makes appealing for a young male to indentify himself as a woman.

Maybe the antidote is just to make yourself (or your children) watch more macho protagonist.

There is also the fact that gay stuff ultimately attract people who are gay. It means that it is more a correlation than a consequence that people watching anime are in majority attracted by the same sexe.

You have picked my interest and I will do some research about Blanchard


Also the essay Ray Blanchard posted on twitter is not his own. He just reposted it because it had the same subject from his studies.

He latter responded he didn't knew it would attract so much attention on him from twitter mobs.

thoughts on the new evangelion rebuild movie?


why would they remade eva its beyond me the original its still good not an underground flawed masterpiece, literal nostalgia bait


It was mostly bad tbh

the part where they say "neon genesis" made me lol


Anno has directly stated it's so that Khara could finance future projects. He kept the rights to Eva and it was a tried and true franchise that would print money no matter what. I'm sure he had no idea how long he'd be stuck Rebuilding, though.

have someone here ever seen genocyber?
4 posts omitted. Click reply to view.


They made the kindhearted characters from the manga into witless bloodthirsty monsters for no reason. WTF was up with that hospital massacre scene?!


>>369 LOL, like if genocyber ever had a point, genocyber it's basically cyberpunk elfen lied, and this means that you don't watch it for the plot you watch it for the gore


Not the point I was making.

I like gore, I'll check it out. Thanks for the recommendation


The second one is better than the first in that respect.

So in my humble opinion there are many anime shows, especially recent ones, that are really hyped but not good or not as good as their hype would let you think. So in order to save time and or warn people to not expect too much from an anime, I'd like to make this OAWT (Overhyped Anime Warning Thread).

The comments should NOT include spoilers, especially not something like "the plottwist is stolen by XYZ". That would really suck.
Try to just include data like:
-Reasons why it is bad (repetitiveness, unoriginality, hollow characters)
-Reasons why it is hyped even though it is not that good f.e.
>it's hyped because the main character makes a good waifu, but the rest of the show is trash

I'll start by replying to my own post.


File: 1625839023052.jpg (112.17 KB, 2340x1080, v2-a7ac1abc815c2fda7259385….jpg)

My first one would be obviously: Darling in the Franxx

The anime made a ridiculously good waifu that's got it all. The style, the horns, the split personality. That is basically why the character is hyped, not really the show.
Prepare to watch a boring ass anime with a plot that is 80% NGE and a Character-relationship-lore that is 100% a copy of Elfen Lied
It is still fun to watch most of the time, actually really good in the first episodes. Expect to like her but not the anime.


File: 1625839500275.png (1.14 MB, 851x939, rem_re_zero_by_mrguyiknow-….png)

My 2nd and last one for now is:

Trust me, this show is a hot piece of garbage.
It starts really good (even for an isekai) and really makes you want to watch. The gates that are opened in the first episodes make you wonder about what's going to happen.
But after a few episodes it really becomes a sore and boring show without any character development at all.
The only thing that really is good about this show is the character design of Ram and Rem. It is simple but brilliant. The rest is for the trash can.
Worst MC of all time(!)
The show completely destroys the concept of deaths for every other anime you watch as well, because all the time someone dies and gets revived by going back in time.
Also the second season (24 episodes!) consist out of 2 things (not really a spoiler)
-50% of the time the MC cries and whines
-the other 50% Emilia does the exact same thing

I honestly regret having watched this show from the depths of my heart.


Jojo's bizarre adventure.

I honestly don't get the appeal of this show at all. The characters look incredibly ugly and like a mere paper cut will kill them all thanks to how extremely bara they look. They look better at 12 than at whatever age they are when they're grown up, because they don't even look like 12 when they're 12 but more like normal human beings. People love to praise the "uniqueness" of this show but it's just very ugly and boring. Oh no, Dio is so evil he killed a dog! Oh no, Dio is so corrupted he just stole this girls first kiss!… Dio is very boring.

My friend forced me to watch this with him for the first time ever, kept telling me that it's a very good show I'll end up loving and after a whole season I still cannot stand this show and don't plan on watching more of it either. The fans are also extremely annoying. Whenever someone says anything, there has to be a Jojo retard saying "omg was that a jojo reference XD" as if it's the funniest shit ever.

File: 1623851516107.png (311.22 KB, 699x478, FLCL.png)


hey wirechan, have someone seen FLCL?


I have not but I definitely will. It sounds very interesting.

>Naota Nandaba is an ordinary sixth grader living in a city where nothing amazing ever seems to happen. After his brother Tasuku leaves town to play baseball in America, Naota takes it upon himself to look after everything Tasuku left behind—from his top bunk bed to his ex-girlfriend Mamimi Samejima, who hasn't stopped clinging to Naota since Tasuku left.

Little does Naota know, however, that his mundane existence is on the verge of being changed forever: enter Haruko Haruhara, a Vespa-riding, bass guitar-wielding, pink-haired psychopath whose first encounter with Naota leaves him with tire tracks on his back and a giant horn on his head. Though all he wants is some peace and quiet, when Haruko takes up residence at his parents' home, Naota finds himself dragged into the heart of the greatest battle for supremacy that Earth—and quite possibly the entire universe—has ever seen


Trust me it's really worth watching


File: 1623866324622.jpg (72.05 KB, 1280x720, eqioruhg.jpg)

>>290 Agreed


I will never again feel such a thrilling passion within my heart and loins as when I watched FLCL at eleven. I don't think it's even a very good show nowadays, but it really shocked me. It was beyond just being horny. My whole body throbbed and thrummed.
