Japanese production company Toei announced today that influential anime and manga creator Leiji Matsumoto, best known for creating Space Battleship Yamato and Galaxy Express 999, passed away on February 13 in a Tokyo hospital due to acute heart failure. He was 85.

Matsumoto was born in Kurume, Fukuoka prefecture on January 25, 1938. As a child and teenager during WWII, Matsumoto watched many American cartoons and comics through his father, a test pilot for the Japanese Imperial Army, as he was moved around due to the war. He was able to witness many planes during his early years through his father’s work and raids from the US Army.

He channeled his interest in cartoons and science fiction by forming a manga doujinshi group in elementary school. Matsumoto moved to Tokyo in 1953 to pursue a career in manga at the age of 18, debuting with Mitsubachi no Boken, a manga Matsumoto wrote while finishing high school.

Since then, Matsumoto is known for creating works such as Space Battleship Yamato, Captain Harlock, Galaxy Express 999, Queen Emeraldas and so many more influential works that inspired generations of artists around the world.

>and though her powers are a deus-ex-machina it really doesn't matter since unlike Bofuri the focus isn't on the wacky things they're doing but on the friendships and people she gets to meet
Normally the whole isekai cheat power thing makes me roll my eyes, but I admire how Yuna's devoted her powers to small but meaningful acts of charity and that she has the humility to reject the spotlight. This trope is so much less annoying when it's used in service to others, not just for the main character's self-aggrandizement.

There's a difference in the kind of struggle you see in a SoL and the struggle of the real world. I think the difference is the honesty that >>36456 mentioned. In CGDCT/SoLs you may have some conflicts between friends and some fights, but the characters remain honest and open. Despite turmoil, there remains a clear-cut sense of rightness in the world, and uncertainty is only short-term is nature. Put another way, I would feel comfortable confessing my secrets, worries, and dreams (if I had any) to them [characters in a CGDCT/SoL], and I'd be confident that they would patiently listen, smile and accept me, for no other reason that they are fundamentally kind people.

In the real world, people are selfish by necessity, all actions are ultimately taken from the framework of maximizing personal gain (even actions like "donating to a charity" are a farce to increase the schmuck's vanity). People are not fundamentally "good", but rather fundamentally opportunistic and self-serving (which can at times appear to manifest as "good" depending on the circumstance).

In the context of the real world, the platitude that "struggle builds character" is mostly used as a back-rationalization/means of coping with the unpleasant circumstances one finds himself in, and ultimately as a means of trying to attribute some purposefulness to the struggle.

I pity those people. I don't have the energy for that. It's easier for me to be kind and have those people go away quickly without incident. I couldn't care less about being out a few dollars or losing a couple minutes. So long as I don't have to talk as much.

You're contradicting yourself. You're not "maximizing your personal gain", but you do act based on self-interest.

Just shared my thoughts when looking at my old Yuru Camp s1 screenshot folder.
I meant struggle as in the painful grind that it is in real life, entirely different from what you can appreciate in a slice of life show. Whereas it wasn't my intention to start a debate, I think >>36458 understood well what I tried to convey with the previous post.

I hope life doesn't get too bad and we can all take it easy more often.

Do not watch something you know you wont enjoy for sure, there is no purpose. You might understand references, but references to something you again do not enjoy. That sounds stupid. I like Evangelion a lot so I would recommend it to other people but to watch it just so you could chameleon your way into a community is wrong

Let's have a thread for "old" stuff (i.e. not from the newest season) that you're catching up on.

Pic related: I'm watching Hidamari Sketch x 365 (AKA the second season). I've been thinking for awhile lately that I wanted to watch something with a "weird" character like Osaka/Rin, and Miyako kinda fits the bill, so this was just what I'm looking for.

What are you watching?

Didn't expect Xabungle to have anti American undertones since it's so lighthearted. Thought it was just a Gundam western on a desert planet. It's supposedly set on the desert planet Zora where "civilians" live in the harsh wasteland, while the "Innocent" elite live in protected domed cities that are illegal to attack.

Turns out it's actually set in a post apocalypic version of Earth where the Americans, the "Innocent", nuked everything and set up a new system where they have military bases everywhere (the domes) from which they control the "civilians", i.e the Japanese.

The nuke, the B-29 and the Earth world map showed inside the bridge of the new captured Iron Gear all hint to this. Other than that it's a fun show, pretty much a remix of the original Gundam with the White Base arc in a western setting.

I'm re-watching season 1 of Chaika.
I watched most of it when it was airing, but I fell off around episode 8 or 9, I don't recall.

It's fun! Chaika is cute.
>> No. 37014 [Edit]
Just finished Season 1, but it turns out I had in fact seen all of it before and it was just memory-holed. I guess it is a fairly mediocre series that aired 9 years ago.
I still like it, though. For all of its mediocrity and complete lack of attempt at worldbuilding and aesthetic, it's a fun show with some cool things like gun magic.

Saw the first ep. I wanted to keep an open mind about this, but man...
Starting with appearances. I don't hate the character redesigns as much as some other people seem to, but I do still think they're not great. They look a bit derpy. I don't know why they felt the need to give Vash a gaudy scifi looking arm. keeping the nature of his arm secret in the original meant he didn't have all his cards on the table, it was just one of the many tricks up his sleeves. It was logical to just have a normal looking arm.
A lot of the animation seems overly exaggerated, but that stuff isn't what really bugs me. In the original you have this desert planet, maybe it's a post apocalyptic earth, maybe it's a stylized version of the old west, maybe it's just a fantasy world. It takes time to peel away the layers and unveil the reality of the situation and why these people are on this planet, as we also slowly learn the backstory of our main character, who and what he is. Instead, the remake's opening scene throws that all out the window and explains everything upfront. By the end of the first ep they unveil Vash's brother is behind the disaster, that he's the big baddy of the series and so on. Can't say I much like the idea of dumping everything right up front. So instead we get this huge and abrupt shift from Eve Online to Boarderlands. I could see it working if the first ep or two was just life on the ship, establishing these character would make rem's loss and knives betrayal have that much more of an impact, instead they rush all that. Our first intro to vash shows him hung upsidedown and left to die, which I think is just their way of showing him with out stretched hair like his old look as a kind of nod to the original character design. That just left me wonder why in the hell the gang that did that wouldn't turn him in for the reward money. I feel like I could keep going on and on with things that seemed dumb or annoying but in the end, it just doesn't feel like it's very well thought out. Feels like they're just intending on going with style over substance, but it doesn't even look that great. I'll probably keep going, but my expectations are pretty low now.

Why was the older thread deleted? While I've only finished the first episode, I thought it was at least promising as a slice of life.

Given that the story is about struggling comedians, I think it's to be expected that the jokes will fall a bit flat. (It also doesn't help that the fuckishit subs supposedly clobber any semblance of a joke. There are alternate ones made courtesy of someone on 4/a/, but they're delayed by a week).

I wonder if they'll keep the train joke as a running gag throughout the show. At some point it's got to elicit a chuckle at least.

>It's trivial to see that if you preserve only popular files, eventually the long tail of "unpopular" files will disappear.
You're making the assumption that people will only have an interest in popular files. If people distribute what they're interested in, even less popular things will be preserved. What will disappear is that which nobody has enough of an interest in to distribute.
>> No. 36937 [Edit]
>that which nobody has enough of an interest in
Which is quite literally the definition of unpopular. The pool of people distributing is a subset (and likely not even a representative one at that) of the population at large, and has the obvious constraint of temporality. If you can guarantee that no person anywhere in the world in the future will ever have in interest in that file, then I agree there's no point preserving it. That's a very strong assumption to make, and under those odds the marginal utility of archiving an additional copy of a popular file is entirely dwarfed by the marginal utility of archiving an unpopular one.

>Which is quite literally the definition of unpopular.
I don't agree. Death Note is popular. I would not call some of the things I've archived popular, but I archived them, because I'm interested in them, in an archeologist sort of way.
>> No. 36939 [Edit]
> I would not call some of the things I've archived popular
That doesn't contradict my point in any way. All things that are at risk of disappearing are unpopular. Not all unpopular things are at risk of disappearing. I will admit that saying "is the definition of" implies a biconditional, not one-way implication (*), which is my bad for not being precise enough (I'd assumed it was self-evident enough that colloquial language would be sufficient, but I guess not). Either way quibbling over the definition of "unpopular" doesn't have any material bearing on the second (and more significant) aspect to >>36937

(*) I'm fairly certain the biconditional actually does hold, you just need to more precisely/formally define "unpopular" instead of handwaving it. But that's an orthogonal discussion.

I get why they didn't want to have GoodJob-san just buy things, because then it's not a team effort. It doesn't quite seem like they destroyed the clubhouse entirely, and I guess they'll probably patch the floor of it later. I guess if you want to put the literary goggles on you can handwave something about how the tree house inherits the spirit of the old clubhouse, or how it marks a new generation of DIYers so it's only fitting that the old one be disassembled. But I would have preferred they do something cool like that thatched roof she mentioned.
