To put my alita box set on top of my Blu-ray cabinet be like
Seen it myself and one or two of my usual channels on youtube covered it.Has anyone see that hit piece on attack on titan claiming it's fascist and its not and know people hate this term but don't expect anything less from these sjws Polygon might as call anyone who watches attack on Titan a fascist and Im not left or right leaning.do these people actually know what a fascist is.sorry for being a downer but this crap piss me off and mods can move this if it's not in the right place.
I've seen a few stuff (like FMA and Tanya) that seem to blend stuff from both world wars or periods surrounding them, manga & anime creators seem to be fans of the stuff (not the ideals) that came from that time.Also its now 1930s and the `eldians wear armbands and have been"exiled" ti their own land which is apparently is a plan hitler had.Imo he is inspired by Germany and its history~The Yeagerists do some dodgy stuff in the new arc.
This is why I like you Aya, multi-paragraph thought out responses. From discussions we've had in the past I certainly don't think you're an easily offended person, my post was intended to clarify that.I really don't want to deviate too much from the thread topic so I'll just give some final thoughts:
I'm certainly not the kind of person who is easily offended, as hard as it may be for you to believe
I actually do come from a time when we weren't looking under every rock with intent to find something to take offence at. I'm simply implying that you don't have to necessarily agree with or feel comfortable with everything that you see in fictional entertainment (or real life, for that matter). I'm certainly capable of perspective, and of being able to separate the two, but some things in fiction can be representative of things that occur in real life (or are influenced by real life scenarios), albeit in an exaggerated manner. It's entirely possible to still respect the creative freedom of the artist, even if you don't like certain aspects of their creations, and I'm certainly not the kind of person who would suggest that any creative "should never have made that". I'm also not one of those people who feels that just because I have a problem with something, that every one else should therefore have a problem with it as well.
Personally I think it's a positive thing that artists can push boundaries because in my opinion, you'd have to be a pretty emotionless machine to not react to anything. I don't mean react as in "I must take my relatively disproportionate, passive-agressive rant to social media to inform the masses about how deeply offended I am", I simply mean reacting in a real and human way. Allowing yourself to empathize with characters, and become invested in their stories -people can really feel connected to specific characters, because "he or she has been through a similar situation".
I think there's a difference between simple acceptance of something existing and understanding why it exists. What I meant by my comment was that because he was in a dark place at the time, it was probably easier for Anno to tap into and illustrate the darker sides of human nature - Things which I don't think either of us would dispute are really there. That exploration of people as flawed beings created as a product of their experiences struggling to overcome and move beyond that is what makes Evangelion as special as it is. Obviously I'm a huge fan of media doing the things you describe there too, I think it's great to challenge your audience (and I guess, make them feel uncomfortable) I'm just not sure what there is to question about it.Entertainment can be pretty jarring too; it's certainly not all sunshine and rainbows. Some things are meant to shock and surprise, and that needn't be a bad thing. I personally think it's acceptable to raise eyebrows and question things, as opposed to, (at least in this example), soley accepting the things that transpire as the bi-product of a warped mind. It's possible to do so without it resulting in twisted knickers
Ouch. Straight for the heart eh? I prefer to aim for the head myself, but whatever works It's not that I can't empathise or that fiction doesn't move me, it certainly does. It's just this idea of "discomfort" I'm not sure I really understand. Fiction is most definitely capable of making me feel sad or joyful (or wistful, which is my favourite) but never really uncomfortable. If I think about it, perhaps "discomfort" is just not something I feel generally any more (unless I'm say, sat on a train opposite someone I find very attractive and spending all my mental energy trying not to make eye contact, lest they see into my soul and judge me for my thoughtcrimes, but that's not an experience fiction can replicate). It could be that I felt enough of it in real life as a youngling that I had enough and decided to stop feeling it, or am just a psychopath who can turn off my empathy when I want to. The two maybe be related. Anyway, thanks for engaging with me further on this, I do like hearing other people's perspectives and it gave me an excuse to ramble. On another topic...I respect the fact that we are very different in terms of our attitudes, and thus have different outlooks on things, and these are just my personal thoughts and opinions. I totally see where you're coming from, but I can't fundamentally agree on the basis that I have too much awareness and emotional intelligence.
I haven’t, but then I actively try to avoid this outrage farming clickbait sh*te as much as possible. While I'm not a reader of the manga, so far in the anime in terms of fictional ethnic conflict I think AoT’s is pretty well realised. The oppression of the Eldians being based on the Marleyans' perception (whether real or not) of the Eldians' past oppression of them is pretty realistic and morally grey compared to a lot of black and white fictional conflicts.Has anyone see that hit piece on attack on titan claiming it's fascist
That does not seem good for your health. Surely by now the glue has started to degrade?I've been glued to the Shinji chair all this time.
That doesn’t sound too good, at least i can help make this thread in particular a little more active again, unless i disappear again.Well AUKN has been a little quieter than before (particularly this thread) not much from me other than finding the annoyance that is anyone holding manga stock for deluxe editions
