I should note I didnít see ďthe threadĒ people are talking about. I just saw anime people on my timeline pointing out people still talking about the sus thing and I thought it funny that itís still going on.

I never go digging for the poop. Donít ever dig for the poop.

apparently the script for the new madoka movie has been written since before thunderbolt fantasy started, which means its probably gonna do the boring thing and wrap everything up neatly imo

In case anyone is curious about the aforementioned tweet/thread: https://twitter.com/Locksneedfartin/status/1386000194844700672

Notably, the thing they're complaining about is "sus" being used as a translation for "kyodoru" in the original, which is a shortened version of "kyodoufushin", which is "acting suspicious" so "sus" ends up being a fairly 1:1 translation in both meaning and structure.

I just watched the 3rd episode of "I shaved and then brought a high school girl home." This series is one I was kinda on the fence about, due to it revolving around a pretty traumatized person, and I've gotta say this last episode really struck me in the worst way. It's one thing to have confrontations between mc and this girl where she is trying yet again to barter her body for her stay, which while disgusting is pretty much where she's at by this point of the series. It's another to have the anime just loving linger in on zooms over her lingerie'd tits and rear end repeatedly during this confrontation. It was disgusting. There have been plenty of other tone deaf adapations, but this one just irritated the hell out me.

In that case it seems diegetic, in that the camera is going along with what she's attempting to do.

I just don't know if the show's going to get the benefit of the doubt from me. It's definitely been the most egregious example to this point, but after earlier examples of male gaze I just don't know if this scene needed it spelled out quite like that.

Regardless as to whether this is a good or a bad thing (what matters is does it deliver a fun and engaging emotional experience that we expect out of the franchise) but I'm not sure how the script being written years ago implies anything about the plot or story structure.

I just mean that it could have been written as a piece with Rebellion. itd be more interesting to me if this was a current script, given his work on thunderbolt, which rules.

but its all just spitballing, i dont know poo poo

Hot take #1: Nagatoro is obviously exactly the sort of teen who would use the word "sus" in general conversation

Hot take #2: I think the new Madoka movie could be good or it could be bad, and I will decide which I think it is once it has actually been made and I have actually watched it

i'm going to just not pay any real mind to the new madoka movie until after it's out and then maybe i'll watch it eventually

Sus has been around forever, at least here in Australia. I could go dig up some mafia games on these forums from years ago where everyone is calling everyone else "pretty sus"

I'm fascinated by this idea that it's a new slang word. Was it not a common phrase in the US before?

i like both magia record and rebellion more than the tv series, and i like the tv series

there's also a few spinoff manga. kazumi magica and oriko magica are eh but theres a short backstory manga for mami and kyouko (different story) that adds some context to their characters, mami especially

imo Magia Record (which has an anime but is primarily a gacha game) is easier to enjoy if you accept it as its own thing instead of going in expecting Madoka 2.

edit: seconding endorph on the mami + kyoko manga, that one rules

There's also the most important Madoka spinoff manga, Homura Tamura.

Is the Magia Record anime self-contained or does it end a "hope you like gacha if you want the rest of the story" note?

It's self-contained except that it ends on a cliffhanger. The next season has been officially announced to be a thing but we still don't have any details on like ETA or anything.

A racist got mad because the English translation of a slangy Japanese script used slang he wasn't particularly familiar with.

I got that, but wasn't there one before this week about the manga itself being racist because it promoted bullying or something? After the anime was first announced.

imo the only engagement that guy needs is anyone who looks at his tweets clicking on the report button. twitter moderation sucks rear end and they probably won't do anything about it but if there are enough reports they might eventually glance at them and at least delete his garbage.

It seems like people on twitter are determined to make disagreements about minor issues like translation into these huge moral debates and if you disagree with a person, you must be a terrible human being. Its not hard to find some random rear end in a top hat to turn into a convenient example of how terrible a person is for disagreeing with something.

Yes, I realize that, hence the rear end in a top hat comment. I'm saying they are taking advantage of his other lovely opinions to show off that disagreeing with them about minor dumb translation stuff makes someone a Nazi like him by association.
