"Anime is trash for people stupid enough to wanna stick their dick in a plughole" seems like a fresh take nowadays.

YOU SAY MY POSTS ARE THE RAVINGS OF THE DUMBEST PERSON ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH BUT YOU YOURSELF ARE READING THEM. CURIOUS!


Thatís the SA overall opinion since its inception. As nerds needing to feel superior to other nerds has always been a thing.

Itís a dump take but itís certainly not fresh.

You know what anime isn't trash? Double Deckers. Watch it. Love it, because it loves you. It's super queer and the main character is a marxist.

My favorite fascism-pushing anime is Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

It's got human sacrifices, genocide and war criminals! What's not to love?

I've started watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and while it took me a bit of time to warm up to it, and it's a bit heavy for a real binge, I'm looking forward to finishing it soon.

I'm just trying to go through life without looking stupid.

It's not working out too well...

Look, everybody's know there's a list of anime universally loved and revered by many people, and they are:

Animation Runner Kuromi
Polar Bear's Cafe
Chi's Sweet Home
Yawara! A Fashionable Judo Girl
Victorian Romance Emma
Sket Dance
Brigadoon
Kurogane Communication
Black Magic M-66
and...I dunno, Slayers, I guess.

The new (and final0 season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend started last Friday, looking good so far. Somewhat more relevant to this thread, seeing as Rachel Bloom was a Youtube personality long before she made it to prime time and an Emmy.

I was gonna put a video clip of Bat Fink here but then I remembered how horrifically racist his 'sidekick' was and decided we didn't need that derail just yet.

He's absolutely one of the most pro clicks on all of Youtube. I think that his highways episode is maybe the best political/social video on Youtube

He never actually achieves that goal in any of the three incarnations of the story, and his quest to do so fundamentally breaks him and everyone around him as a person to varying degrees in each iteration as the country reforms into a democracy without him in the end. Saying FMA is pro-fascist when everything about Amestris under Bradley is openly presented as evil to its core, and one of its movies delved into how loving evil the LITERAL NAZIS were too is quite disingenuous.

But whatever.

Uhhh... Brotherhood pretty explicitly ends with him named as the new Fuhrer, iirc. But yeah, it's VERY clearly framed that the military regime is a corrupt and bad thing.

Not quite another General is the new Fuhrer, and the fire clicker is stuck working for him. But the dude seems to be tranaitioning his police state into a more democratic state and trying to keep the borders peaceful

Seconding this recommendation, especially his Franklin series. He's also a goon. And he just did a video on Killdozer. Give him a dollar.

I know Killdozer is something else, but I always think of the Dozerfleet Saga when I hear about it, and I look back on the troper threads with nostalgia and disgust.
