what kind of protofolio will get me a job in pixar, marvel, warner bros, weta digital?

like what should i show/include?
as a 3d or maybe even 2d artist?
how many things? what kind of quality?



If you don't have any prior successful experience you should include: referred by: [person that works there]


>>425 but… i know nobody there …


i think it would be a good idea to start a youtube channel and make animations and then collab with people and start networking


you do have other equally amazing job opportunities like shoveling gravel into a truck, cleaning up restrooms or stocking shelves at 2am

you can also draw porn that pays pretty good


>>427 sure but what s good content when no one is giving u feedback
>>428 i stack shelves already. i have no other degrees than this since i dont qualify for IT or smarter jobs due to our school systems branching out since junior high

so pls dont say retarded things like this as it is a waste of my time

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.

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.


File: 1629309309523.png (67.13 KB, 300x250, happy.png)

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


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

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.

What are some good anime that were made in the last few years, i feel that all the series i loved are about to be 10 to 15 years old now and i don't want to be *that* guy

Honestly I only know casuals that didn't think of this anime as complete trash. It's not generic and the art style is really good, but it really feels like it was made for edgy teens to relate to. I watched half of it but it was too repetitive for me to keep watching.
Well I guess it's just one of those animes where opinions differ, I'm glad you could enjoy it, I wouldn't recommend it though.~


>the art style is really good
That was what sucked me into it. Normally don't like that much CGI, but it had a unique look. Sometimes that's all it takes for me.
>made for edgy teens to relate to
Yeah, that kind of turned me off too and at times I wondered how much of it was sincere story telling and how much of it might be a platform for a gacha game down the road. Could picture parents scolding their edgy teens for over spending on too many eggs.
>too repetitive
Was a little disappointed after the first couple episodes to see it was turning into a monster of the week, but I stuck with it because I found it had a sort of surreal quality that I don't often come across… posting this here on a board that often loves Lain, so maybe that says something about my tastes. Anyway, halfway through I began to loose interest, but it took a couple weird twists towards the end and that's what redeemed it for me.
Like op said…
>i feel that all the series i loved are about to be 10 to 15 years old
I can relate to that and for the last couple years I've mostly been watching anime older then that, feeling a little burnt out on popular contemporary art style for the most part.


File: 1619450746692.jpg (271.73 KB, 1116x1382, odgL5QJ.jpg)

I recommend you Monogatari and Girls Last Tour, also Vivy which is airing right now

Op here thanks for the reccs


Girls und panzer. When I originally saw some things about, I thought it was gonna be some weird anime. But its kinda fun, and the characters are likeable.

Also Initial D.

My shipment from japan with some anime figures and wall scrolls was returned to sender. I ordered it from amiami and never had problems with it. This was the first time I took the cheap shipping that takes 2 months. So now they'll send it back for 2 months and I'm going to have to pay shipping again and wait another 2 month.


File: 1622714799783.jpg (71.62 KB, 2560x1440, sad-anime-nawpic-9.jpg)

I feel that.
Poor Anon.


And the worst part is, I have a preorder every month for the next few months. And I don't know if I can take this cheap shipment again or if the return-to-sender was somehow connect to the shipping method. The difference is like paying 20€ or 50€ for shipping. Gaddeeeem

Mangos are tasty


Manga is OK, because you don't need to watch the anime to understand it.


>have to be following each single episode like a cultist going to the lodge every day
if that is your impression mabye you are trying to say you just dont like any series in general
>even the movies are tie-ins to the animu so you can't just watch them alone, you have to have seen teh enniemoo beforehand
Standalone anime movies exist


I've been getting into the subject, I think I may even be enjoying it.
Don't worry about it.

The true answer to OP's question



greeting from the future


File: 1613312023203.png (202.87 KB, 483x601, overreaction.png)

picrelated, overreaction reaction image. i liked steins;gate, but have to kinda sorta disagree. yes and no. cyberpunk in it's way, but also a lot more comedy then lain. more moe. more intentionally self referential to anime as a genre unto itself. there is the john titor mythos and it's use in the story is similar to that one lain episode, layer:09, where there is the exposition on the various conspiracy theory type philosophizing that is a backdrop to sel. both riffing off of that building 90s conception of cyberpunk. where they really diverge for me is in the style and pacing. lain can be so slow, vague, and has such a weird mood to it. i've yet to see any other anime like lain that i could compare to it on those grounds. maybe if a director like david lynch directed an anime? the way sel story is told reminds me of something like a david lynch movie, where at the beginning you have no concrete idea about what is actually happening until the world that's being built explains itself somewhat and the film just seems like a vague dreamlike poem, with little narrative, made for the sake of the aesthetics. and even then, there is a lot left up in to interpretation. i do wish that i have seen more anime like that and could recommend something.


Ghost Hound


S;G and Lain are both 10/10 for me and I completely agree with you. Lain is more about transhumanism and the feeling is comparable to AKIRA or NGE. While S;G shines through the relatable characters and even though it is a /cy/-setting it's still a mixture of a lot of anime styles. Steins;Gate is a good story with brilliant characters told in the best way possible, but it doesn't really have such an actual message.
