RE: 5 Things To Dislike About Japanese Entertainment Media
There’s a lot to like about Japanese media, even the wacky game shows.

Japanese media is a breath of fresh air compared to Hollywood, where 228 executives at 6 companies who almost all have a similar background and religion control everything.

Once you watch a lot of Japanese stuff, however, you see it has its own biases.

1. Male characters often act in an anti-game matter, often acting like stalkers or creeps or prostrating themselves before women
2. Movies are often slow paced and visually uninteresting, similar to British films and screenwriter driven independent films that tell, not show, the plots
3. The Animes blink a lot to keep kids interested and have been known to cause seizures

I’m glad Japanese output exists and is as independent of Hollywood as it is. (Which is to say it isn’t independent, but at least the Japanese are in somewhat control of their own output).

No offense but I guess it's a sign of the times that someone indifferent to sex would find home in this forum.

The Globohomo crap comes top down and is international. However compared to the West then a huge amount of conventionally good normal Red Pill entertainment is being made.

In fact Manga is about to overtake the US comics - in reality it has already overtaken them but the big agenda pushers at Marvel and DC have begun to sell their shitty Bolshevik products to libraries and schools on taxpayer dime.

Currently the Bolsheviks are attempting to reign in the unfettered Japanese Manga and Anime because there is too much toxic masculinity (aka real masculinity) in it and the women are way too hot and feminine.

The same goes for other media outlets there.

So no - the mainstream top-down push is real and you can witness it even there, but otherwise 100 times more ancient story-telling tropes than anything produced by the Bolsheviks in Hollywood and the West.

I think you absolutely missed the based and redpilled "Legend of Galactic Heroes"




Just an sample.

Also check out Vinland Saga based on the Nordic epic about the quest for Vinland(America) by the Norse.

RE: 5 Things To Dislike About Japanese Entertainment Media
I recently watched Attack On Titan and marveled at how the show had the guts to avoid using its political elements as some sort of soapbox to rant about how nationalism/war/etc. is evil. It's surprisingly complex in how it handles its political conflicts - most of the antagonists are not evil people but have goals that clash with the protagonists. Group A thinks that Group B is evil and deserves to pay for their actions - and Group B believes the exact opposite, with no real indication of whose version of history is correct. It gives the show a level of depth and unpredictability that makes it stand out from similar series.

The point is that there is *no way on earth* this would ever be adapted for the West without the bolsheviks changing the plot to be an analogy for White Man Bad/The Poor Jews!/etc.

Well with the outlook of the Forum changing... it's virtually Heaven for the Black Pilled who no longer, or never gave a sh*t about Women!

Animes from the 80s were more static with lower quality animations but the character design was a lot better and more realistic while contemporary animes have better animations but the characters are too cartoonish and unnatural.

I disagree.

Kenshiro that is your avatar for example is a boring anime with an OP hero that is just too perfect in all regards, while villains are just evil and cruel with no reason to be. Each character's destiny is given away by his star's placement in constellation. It's bad writing.

Ultraman was the same thing each episode - only visuals of monster changed.

Don't know other anime from 80ties rather then FotNS and Ultraman but these two were boring.


Today anime is very varied in style and writing, surely you can find something that suits your taste. not everything is cartoonish (apart from being a part of cartoon Big Grin) and unnatural (apart of being fictional Big Grin)

LOGH also have very high quality political intrigue. Here's a sample:

RE: 5 Things To Dislike About Japanese Entertainment Media
Last year I moved away from watching US dramas and started to watch some Japanese stuff. It's been a very interesting ride so far, especially when watching dramas based on mangas and/or anime as they can be quite crazy for Westerner.

But there's a lot of more conventional stuff available as well. NHK annual "Taiga Dramas" is IMO a great place to start, especially if someone wants to learn about Japan history.

From what I am seeing there's some globohomo and feminism agenda pushed there (of course it usually happens when specific TV Series is produced mostly for women), but at least fat shaming still seems to be relentless.

My favourite moment in one of the dramas (could also put this in "Fat people" thread) - 11 women were kidnapped and Police found a Van used by perpetrators to do it. Van could hold 500 kg in the back. Without blinking, detectives agreed that 500 kg is enough for 11 women. Only in Japan Banana

There were also some dramas with very nicely written strong woman characters (I know, sounds like a blashphemy).

And last thing - fathers rising kids on their own, or with a new partner, is a surprisingly popular topic in Japanese dramas. Or maybe I've just found a unnaturally high number of TV Series with this type of theme.

"Wynik jest jawnie niedemokratyczny. Wiadomo że demokratyczny wynik jest tylko wtedy, gdy popiera lewacką utopię. Każdy inny wynik to faszyzm i nazim. Rasizm i ksenofobia. I jeszcze homofobia i zacofanie. Oraz antysemityzm"

This is the big dichotomy right now between Asian and Western entertainment. The former gives you plausible story and morally grey characters and let's you make up your mind. The latter now shoves down politically correct/LGBTQ++/ethnic characters as indoctrination tool. And if you criticise bad writing or cringe at Captain Marvel you are a Bad Man and have to be destroyed for it.

GenZ and onward are manga people thanks to the internet. All the shaming and marketing in the world can't change it back. How many more movie/show remakes of DC and Marvel can they even make? Manga caters to every genre, not just the same superhero shtick. It's over man.

Pretty much. It was bad before, but ever since I heard about the all female Ghost Busters, I fully tuned out to Hollywood Entertainment. Japan still has decent shows with a sense of masculinity, like Berserk, Samurai Champloo, Magi, Expelled from Paradise, the first season of Sword Art Online, etc. The Japanese have made me think about the course of my life a few times. Recent American media, not so much, besides making me want to leave.

African-Americans were horrified that the history of their ancestors was being, quite literally, whitewashed.
