Why is whenever people compare Anime to cartoons normalfags always end up with something like "What about Disney?" or "Disney inspired Anime"?

Are they blind? look at this production cel of a feature Disney movie, even seasonal Anime has better production values overall, also did is the claim that Anime = Disney bullshit? Dinsey only inspired Osamu Tezuka to a dregree with fucking Bambi of all things, that cant account for all anime.

I think it's simply due to a difference in goals and aims. The Japanese seem to desire to take the real world and polish it into something as beautiful as possible whereas the west wants to take the world and exaggerate it and parody it as much as possible to the point it becomes grotesque. Body types are a good example of this, an anime body is usually drawn in a way that would work and be attractive in real life or at least would very nearly work, but western art exaggerates it to the point where it would not work and would be disgusting, indeed it's disgusting even as art.

I think there's great western art, just see the french who sometimes were greatly appreciated by the japanese. So it has to be something else;
Maybe it's because animated art it's depreciated in the west, maybe it's an american thing or maybe it's a thing related to our days of cultural decadence. Personally I don't understand most modern cartoon aesthetics, like how all CG movies use the same generic, ugly style. Maybe we're just degenerating.

I asked my parents once what they thought about animation and why animation can't have more adult themes. Their response was to keep insisting that animation inherently had less "weight" to it and they can't take it seriously or feel immersed in what they're watching unless it's live action. When I asked how come Japanese people can make and appreciate more mature animation, my mom said it was an aberration and that it's because they're "children at heart".

Today you wouldn't hear that too often about animation, but still similar things about particular genres, countries, or entire media like videogames.
I think it all can be resumed in "old dog doesn't learn new tricks" with some inherent racism.
Also what you said made me remember of the old "how you can fap to that? it's just a cartoon".

It was a thing centered around spacechan, getting jealous or scared or otherwise touchy about 420chan having the second highest popularity after 4skin. And so, seeing how 420 had quite a noticeable commited contingent of communists on its /pol/ (when it was there) or elsewhere, they wanted to have a distinct rival to all that.

So, spacechan did manage to actually muster a higher traffic /b/ than 420, naturally together with not having many other boards, in contrast to 420 where the users simply constantly ignored those boards and just posted on /high/ with grumbles that the other boards are to slow and shouldn't exist on "a board with only 50 users". But spacechan went to shit though, apparently due to one or two cohorts of "anallockman" flooding endless tranny pics, or some stuff very close, shortly after 420chan had axed its porn boards.

Oh yeah, 420 is of course is where the original transsexuality chan board, very ironically labelled /cd/, arose, until it tanked basically right upon the introduction of /lgbt/, which itself had some horrendously dramawhoring headcases, such as "Kayla".

There's also 8chan. And the second half of this thread. This website already has a purpose. "Doubting" why something not part of that purpose isn't more popular on imageboards here instead of a place where people care about that thing is suspicious. Your mannerisms are also suspicious. So why do you care?

If you don't want to hear about Jews, why do you post in a thread that is specifically about cartoons created by them? Virtually all American cartoons are produced by Jews, including the racist anti-Japanese war propaganda flick in the OP pic, see picrelated.
You probably never complained that one shouldn't discuss how Japanese cultural attitudes influence the content of anime, so why do you care so much when that same type of discussion is applied to Jews and the cartoons they produce? What makes Jews so special to you? Are you like >>35136 and hold some weird religious belief that a cartoon creator's background magically stops influencing his work when he is identified as a Jew?

>it often feels to me that the reason for criticizing a specific execution is fueled by the specific content/ideals presented.
Not sure if you were referring to me specifically, but as I openly said in >>35135 it's not so much that anime doesn't contain any political messaging at all, it's just that when it's there, it's usually non-Jewish in nature and doesn't bother me as much. BlazBlue for example made some thinly veiled references to the alleged human experimentation programs of Unit 731 and contrasted it with the nuclear destruction of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. I notice this stuff just as much as I notice political messaging in Jewish media, but it doesn't bother me much because it's not an attack on me.

I've been enjoying the Yokohama Shopping Tripness of the past month, but it seems like its all coming to an end unfortunately. Traffic has been picking up noticeably the past few days, the rats are starting up the ratraces again, they can't be calmly unessential and superfluous for too long, they're not mature or adult enough to be that honestly in touch with reality like those of us who can be happily unemployed for a lifetime without ever worrying about it.
When the NTs all decide to stay inside, watch movies and play video games for a month then the outside world becomes much more inviting for the rest of us, too bad it couldn't have lasted longer. Same could be said of Yokohama Shopping Trip, it should've lasted longer too.

Normalfags can only attain a sense of self worth when they are fulfilling their instinct to be slaves, and they get mad when they come across anyone who points out that this lifestyle is actually retarded. This attitude will end up destroying them in the end, they are their own worst enemies.

Sometimes I feel like I must have brain damage or come from another planet because concepts like "self-worth" seem quite alien to me. Why to need some menial work to feel well? This need for constant tension, struggle, conflict.
I guess I can understand it from an species point of view, the individuals that crave for that are the ones that have more odds to survive. But from the individual point of view, it's fucked up.

I dislike the idea that we are all slaves to our instincts. Humanity has proven that we can rise above our primitive impulses, we are superior to animals. Anyone who says that we are constrained by our instincts seems to me to be too lazy to actually attempt to surpass them.

I like to get creative with language, but what I don't get is when people complain that what I wrote was incomprehensible. Worse is when they point out some of the simplest parts as especially difficult or nonsensical. For example, I like to think of words not as atoms, but as compositions of roots, affixes, vel cetera---one person, without even trying to look at the obvious root and suffixes complained that that wasn't a word. The point isn't that some people are stupid or lazy, the point is: why are they being so loud about their stupidity or laziness?

Depends on the context you're using it. If this is some creative writing competition, go all out. Otherwise in a forum with casual-formal dialogue, throwing in vel/aut cetera – which though technically correct is rather obscure at this point ("etc" would work fine and has mostly superseded its stricter original meaning to instead signify any sequence that may be inferred) – feels rather odd.

Does anybody else like finding mentally ill people online? By mentally ill I mean the type with delusions, a loose grasp on reality and other mental deficiencies. Their barely coherent ramblings and bizarre lifestyles are one of the most interesting things online. It's so different from the samey stuff everywhere else and every single one is unique and memorable. Is there any way of finding them reliably? Like a similar pattern of behavior?

An asian person with equally broken english might. Learning broken, simplified english is easier than learning it proper, so anybody with limited understanding of english might get it.

I just maintain folders categorized by anime -> character. Then file names are just various tags separated by underscores. This works well since I can then use standard unix utils to find the image I'm looking for, since I usually at least remember what character or tag I assigned. Crucially it preserves access to the structure from other file browsers, so I can still easily choose one to attach in an imageboard.

Well, it's not a "thing" in the sense of being an actual recurring source of interest by many people. I mean, you can go to any hentai site and there won't be any tags about this, like you said it's too implicit. I guess it's more about aesthetics than sexual desire or anything.
