>I assumed from my first sentence it would be clear I knew this was only my own personal unpopular opinion.
I think you misunderstood my post as a defence against your views. I wrote it in regards to the OP text. You mentioned that you feel like you're alone in disliking Shaft. My post is about why most people would agree with you (in disliking shaft), and why people would not get upset if you revealed how you feel about such Studio. The issue is the crowd, hence "where you're looking validation of your opinions". Reasonable people who like Shaft will understand if you don't like Shaft because of art style choices, but reasonable people will also roll their eyes when you expose your opinion in a way that is deriding, because it would make them think (perhaps unjustly) that it's likely your observations are shallow, otherwise you'd have gone through enough reflection of the flaws you found to properly explain what bothers you.

No need to be so apologetic either. The disclaimer makes me feel like I made a mistake in replying because I ended up hurting your feelings or made you feel attack, despite that you chose to write this in /tat/ instead of /an/. You'd make it worse if you address this paragraph, so I hope you won't.

Madoka Magica is unredeemable trash and only got popular for its shock factor, for someone who watched it outside of its original airing period while knowing that it was going to take a "dark" turn there is nothing interesting about it since the story is badly paced and the characters are boring and hard to care about. Steins;Gate is mediocre and extremely overrated.

Homosexuality is a mental disorder and we may had have found some form of therapy to cure it if it wasn't for the forced social acceptance of it, similar to what we're seeing happen with gender dysphoria at the present date.

Humans are morally obliged to commit genocide if a certain etnic group is unable to archieve anything but destroying the hard work of all other groups of people.
As the population of Africa will reach 3 billion in this half of the century alone and they do nothing but procreate while living off donations of other people and are quick to illegally immigrate to western countries where they fall into crime, the only option to fix the future problems they will cause is to at least end the donations so nature can do its thing and a large chunk of the population will starve off until they are in the hundreds or thousands at best which is how its supposed to be given the shitty climate of their continent.
Jews on the other hand should actually be killed off with violence, even when they manage to archieve impressive feats in academic fields such as physics they always use their status, money and in some cases their own creations to cause further suffering on all non-jewish people as they have done since the destruction of the second temple.

>Homosexuality is a mental disorder
I was originally vehemently against homosexuality on a "they need to disappear" mindset, but then I turned around when I saw enough scientific research. Since almost a year ago, after seeing how poorly done most research is, and how much preference agenda-aligning research is focused on I feel it's an abnormality that should be permitted as long as it doesn't encroach into education and society as a crutch. Apparently, though, the overwhelming vocal majority of homosexuals and allies seem to be hell-bent on infecting society from its most shallow to its most profound parts with their now-manifested corruptive ideology. I'm sure there are decent, (comparatively) moral gays out there, but they might as well be a drop of water in this current sea of depravity.
>> No. 472 [Edit]
I watched it out of it's airing period as well but I liked it.
It goes into things like the Red String of Fate and Eternal Recursion.
>> No. 473 [Edit]
Aside from cultural acceptance and agendas, I think the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality. It's especially noticeable in the anime scene where women are in short supply and the ones who are available are revolting whorish ham beasts. Meanwhile many males in the scene are happy to become "traps" who look and act more feminine than your average women ever would, while also talking part in activities modern women find demeaning and offensive such as cooking and cleaning. I've known a few online buddies personally who turned bisexual or gay, and I suspect traps/3DPD to be what pushed them over the edge.
>> No. 474 [Edit]
Saw both Madoka and Steins;Gate way outside of their airing period as well, while being very biased against the former (due to a lot of people telling me it was awful + seeing a lot of disgusting individuals online having it as a favourite anime) and very biased in favour of the latter (one of the favourite anime of someone who help me get fully leave my anime hiatus period behind). I thought bought were masterpieces in different ways. I can acknowledge that what Madoka did right, it did it flawlessly, and what it did wrong, were minor issues for me (character development pacing and shock value); I didn't actually liked nor enjoyed Madoka particularly and probably won't watch it ever again, but I'm "grateful" to it for teaching me to never pre-judge an anime based on its fan base. Steins;Gate on the other hand is one of my favourites, but I do see how and why people deem it overrated, but I thoroughly disagree.
>I think the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality.
I don't think that's true per se as a baseline as much as agenda pushing homosexuality as a healthier lifestyle (e.g. "No drama, bro!") while homosexual couples have a vastly higher percentage of physical, sexual and emotional abuse. I think it's mainly an issue of attention and loneliness, where attention-starved people with low self-esteem, lack of experience and/or knowledge, and histrionic personalities seek whatever will make them feel comfortable, at which point what you mentioned becomes partly true (gay men, desperate by nature, will invariably seem like more approachable targets). I think it's likely another cause is broken homes, single motherhood, and lack of male role models.
>It's especially noticeable in the anime scene
I think that has more to do with the medium rather than the whole. Anime is a (not as much anymore) niche community, and a lot of women (and men) gravitate to it for attention, the same way with any other medium. But, because this niche tends to be filled with less sociable people, it seems like a safer, less-judgemental, and maybe even more economical option than other venues like trying to be a sports fan or go into physical hobbies like vehicles, travelling, hiking, etc. Therefore, the type of women and men (outside of the ones with a legitimate and honest interest in anime) that will be commonplace will, imho, be most likely the ones that failed miserably at the default paths, and will put themselves in a positions where they can maximize the attention and benefits they get from others, hence why a lot of "nerdy" women and (like you mentioned) "traps" will virtue signal and quickly adapt to whatever is currently popular at an impressive degree.

Have you noticed how most people that unexpectedly (or suddenly) became gay, bisexual, transgender, etc. tend to seem irreparably damaged? At least since 2010s, I've never met someone online who had an alternate sexuality who was also not basically broken and/or dead inside.
>> No. 478 [Edit]
It does seem like the increased faggotry in the western world is a reaction to men just not being able to keep up with modern women. Have you ever heard about the mouse utopia experiment? I recommend you reading a bit about it, the mouses were forced to live in a "society" which reflected that of ours and both males and females gradually became homosexual due to the risks that were attached to mating with mouses of the opposite sex simply not being worth it in their eyes.
Could you perhaps explain why you think Steins;Gate is so great in your opinion? I have only seen praise online for it so far and have never seen anyone really criticise it so I really feel alone in disliking it strongly. Here's my stance on it:
One of the main issues with the show to me is the characters, who are insanely annoying. The MC behaves like a chuuni and while it was probably the writer's intention to make him come off as an eccentric "geek", it really just made it painful to watch any scene with him in it. His behaviour was quite unrealistic for someone his age.
Another main issue is that while I did like the second half, the first half was quite boring and it had nothing in it to make me keep watching. The only reason why I kept watching those first episodes was because it was Steins;Gate, it's famous and I wanted to see why the hell people liked it so much but the show itself had nothing going for it. I have seen the first episode serveral times yet I dropped it constantly half the way through because it was just difficult to get through it.
Then there was the ending which seemed badly paced to me, I would have preferred if the whole ordeal with Kurisu had been given a few more episodes.
While many online claim it to be one of the, if not, the best sci-fi anime of all time, in truth it's really just a bad harem show which tries to come off as deep by using somewhat obscure scientific terms which the writer had probably read a few google search results of and barely understood himself.
>> No. 479 [Edit]
>men just not being able to keep up with modern women
Men are perfectly able to, just unwilling. Marriages and families are very much still commonplace, it's just that entertainment and access to it has made life much more fun and comfortable than it has ever been, so socialization and its annoying micromanagement mini-games are taking a back seat.
>have never seen anyone really criticise it so I really feel alone
I'll assume you don't frequent any other imageboards because tons of people think S;G is overrated and cliched, specially women who argue the whole scenario is built with the basis of dating sim (which I don't fully disagree with).
>The MC behaves like a chuuni
This is explained in the series. [SPOILERS]Okabe acts as a eccentric mad scientist for the sake of Mayuri, who is stated and shown to be depressive due to her childhood trauma(s), and as a deterrent of her (apparent) potential suicidal tendencies.
>His behaviour was quite unrealistic for someone his age.
Now I'll assume you connect to the internet on a 32 kbit/sec modem from a remote 1-person island because I can't believe you have never met anyone over 18 (Okabe's age in S;G) who acts like a weirdo or even role plays for fun, specially online, where it seems people that act that way are practically in every single online community. And it's not just men.
>it was just difficult to get through it.
You're allowed to dislike what others seem to enjoy. If it's not for you, that's the end of it. I don't get sports / e-sports / space operas fandom and find them boring and lame, yet a massive amount of people love these, and that's fine.
>many online claim it to be one of the, if not, the best sci-fi anime of all time
More than sci-fi, it's the anime (or even just media in general) that has used time travel with the most respect to the physics and (relatively) realistic consequences, by far. So people that prefer hard science fiction rather than its mixed genres (adventure, space opera, mecha, cyberpunk, etc.) end up finding something that can't be seen anywhere else, specially when it aired. Now there are a few things that have done it similarly.
>by using somewhat obscure scientific terms
I'll make one last assumption and believe you are not acquainted with neither science fiction in general, nor an avid reader of technological advances outside of end users, specially since 1995, regarding computing and physics. Otherwise, you wouldn't make such a tiresome and ignorant comment. No offence meant.

To sum it up, you seem to hate on an anime that apparently was obviously not made for neither your interests nor your sensibilities (feel free to correct me), and if so, then there's nothing wrong with disliking it. But there's a difference between saying "I didn't like S;G" and "S;G is absolute overrated garbage" because there are dozens, if not hundreds, of walls of texts and essays deconstructing the entirety of the show and why it's deemed so good, all of which you can easily find by googling, if you're really interested in learning about what the series did right, rather than validating your opinion.
>> No. 480 [Edit]
>Men are perfectly able to, just unwilling
Yeah because they don't want to risk getting divorced and then being forced to pay alimentation for the rest of their life while lonely and poor and being played off as the "bad guy" by their mother to their children. Which is pretty much the same as not being able to because why the hell would you want to live like that? It's just not worth it.
That one scene where he talks about her being a hostage doesn't really excuse all the other retarded behaviour nor is it really a proper explanation since it's only shown once and never brought up again.
>I can't believe you have never met anyone over 18 (Okabe's age in S;G) who acts like a weirdo or even role plays for fun
I'm glad I haven't. If you're one of these people then you're sadly my first annoying encounter with this sort of person.
>And it's not just men
Why are you so obsessed with mentioning the differences between men and women? This is the third time in your post already, keep the subject to anime please. I'd like to keep identity politics and hobbies seperated.
>it's the anime (or even just media in general) that has used time travel with the most respect to the physics and (relatively) realistic consequences
That's just because there barely exist any anime about time travel. When there's barely anything to compare it to it's easy to say it's the best one. When you stop looking at it from a comparison angle and just see it as it is though you'll realise that it's really not that realistic. I mean, the trap guy becoming a woman has no influence at all on them becoming friends when him being a trap was an essential part of their first interaction? They didn't even bother changing his/her memories of this first encounter, it's just exactly the same. It's also never explained why some characters still have their memories of other timelines while other don't and why some remember things more clearly, it just convenient for the writer.
>Otherwise, you wouldn't make such a tiresome and ignorant comment
Aaaand thanks for proving you're extremely biased and can't look at this from another perspective nor can you properly refute any of my points, you don't at all explain why I was wrong at that last point, you're just going straight for the ad hominem.
>> No. 481 [Edit]
>nor is it really a proper explanation
Hmmm, maybe it's a language barrier thing or lack of attention. It seemed crystal clear to me why he acts the part of a mad scientiest.
>keep the subject to anime please
I was talking about anime, which I assume you have watched practically none of, at this point, if you have never encountered this stereotype.
>If you're one of these people
I'd say you'd qualify if you're the same anon who puts quotes when replying to others, like in that political stance thread.
>It's also never explained why some characters still have their memories of other timelines
They explained it several times. No wonder you can't see past your vitriol if you don't even pay attention. Unsurprising though.
>you're just going straight for the ad hominem
I didn't insult you though. An opinion can be ignorant and tiresome without the commenter being so overall. The irony is that you proved yourself to be the very same thing you described: extremely biased and obtuse. Why would I write a detailed sequence of posts to explain you the series, when you'll end up replying whatever you deem convenient to keep your position, specially when you can easily find that information already written online? You want me to spoonfeed you for no other purpose that to appeal to your own ego. And I never said you were wrong, because what you like or not is subjective based on your own personality and experience. Moreover, I even emphasized that there wasn't anything wrong with you disliking the series, but at this point you're just reading what you want to fabricate an excuse not to move from your standing.

I'm against divorce.
Even if it might be for the "best" of both parties.
Even if it's an abusive relationship.
I don't believe that divorce is an answer. It's just running away, and it kill all the good things that might come out of marriage.

Marriage is a bounding for eternity, or at least for the rest of your life. Like life, it is doomed to have very harsh and dark times. Some things will be irreversible. You can't undo all the bad things that happened to you, nor could you undo all the bad things within a marriage. You can't runaway from your life, why should you be able to runaway from your marriage ?

I get their are special situations and exceptions. I get all of that. But I still hold my point.
Even my parents divorced, and I have a horrible relationship with my dad, to the point that I am closer to my step-dad. I completely understand my mom's reasons for divorce, and respect them. It even looks I am better off with my parents divorced. But still, I (or anyone) can predict what would have happened if there wasn't a divorce, how things would have evolved.

>the current state of western women has pushed more men to homosexuality.
The current state of western women has pushed more men to reclusiveness seems more correct to me.

It might be part of it for feminine men, perhaps some porn fetishes helps self-indoctrinate themselves to lean more that way and traps in anime doesn't help either. From what I've read I think it's more the effect of declining testosterone (around the world but more so in western countries) and increasing estrogen which makes them born gay e.g. gay brains are similarly shaped as females instead of straight males. Something should be done about this.

Picture related can be opened as archive, it has the two books shown on the image.
>> No. 513 [Edit]
There's no such thing as being gay. People of the same sex who love each other confuse romantic love with platonic love, the latter of which is perfectly normal. Attraction to the same sex is a product of extreme perversion, which is separate.
>> No. 518 [Edit]
I fully agree with you, except on the "extreme perversion". I believer that to qualify as depraved, you have to be conscious of what you're doing being morally wrong, yet I have noticed (specially in the last 3-4 years) that there's a lot of brainwashing agenda going on trying to "convert" people into it by normalizing it in all forms as an ideal lifestyle. Point being that for some people, being gay is just "all they know" and get out of that prison without help. I guess the same rings true for all outcomes of degeneracy in general.
>> No. 528 [Edit]
Yeah, I suppose that's possible considering something like "affluenza" is a term that exists as well.

Fahrenheit is a better measurement of temperature, in any use outside of scientific fields/math/etc. or where anything needs precise measurement. For regular use when describing weather or temperatures that don't have to be precise or specific, fahrenheit is best. It happens to be in a perfect range (0-100) of almost all temperatures we have to deal with on a daily basis and makes sense particularly with weather. I don't care as much about the other units of measure, but I do like fahrenheit.
>> No. 537 [Edit]
I couldn't disagree more, it's a dumb, obsolete and outright useless measurement. Celsius makes perfect sense: At 0°C water freezes at average pressure and at 100°C it boils. You just think that way because you use it. Literally everyone else in the world except for literal-shithole Liberia regards it as pointless.

The conception of a globalist, uniformed, omnipotent, clandestine organization or movement against the things you and/or your loved ones value or hold dear is a fiction, which only appears obvious due to a simplification of the end result of a myriad of interconnected power structures, most of which are completely indifferent to you or what you stand for if it does not translate into profit/power for them, or work against their profit/power.

Whenever I've bothered to dig into the motivations, inspirations, and mentalities of those who push for stuff against my interests, it is usually the case that there are a myriad institutions with differing goals and ideals, which may be competing with one another, or operating at different levels of organization, who end up countering my wishes or ideals to achieve their institution's internal goals. They're only synchronous so far as human nature results in predictable responses to certain situations and stimuli.

>They're only synchronous so far as human nature results in predictable responses to certain situations and stimuli.
The main argument poltards have is that the behavior of Jews is different and results in a predictable negative outcome for them. Some think it's supernatural, while others think it's genetic. There isn't any empirical evidence to suggest this is true. Nobody has done a behavioral genetic analysis of Jews.

I concur. Many fawn over their animation style but to me it looks lazy and sloppy, often lacking backgrounds with minimalistic text-laden slideshows passed off as avant-garde art. I don't doubt that it probably did take a lot of effort, but when watching the constant jump-cuts break my attention and interposing real-world objects takes you into the uncanny valley and breaks immersion.

Leaving aside the issue of artwork, I find that most SHAFT adaptations have a common trend of meandering dialogue with agonizing pacing that ruins any change of enjoyment. Just comparing two works by the same author: Joshiraku and Sayonara Zetsubou, the former was adapted by JC Staff and the latter was done by Shaft. While the style of humor should be analogous, the latter was entirely unwatchable due to the usual Shaft antics. I also think they ruined the Hidamari Sketch adaption for the same reasons, and when considering how much I have enjoyed every other Kirara adaption, I find that to be a huge loss.

1. Nature requires human suffering to survive, so it would only be logical that we stop this meat grinder we call life.
2. I think a lot of what we see about North Korea is merely western propaganda. North Korea holds democratic elections, is innovating quite well despite being an isolated country, and they are not the trigger happy monsters that the American media tries to portray them as. They have a right to a strong military and to own nukes to defend their country. And as far as Kim Jong Un being careless in his threats, America isn't innocent in that respect either *cough* Donald Trump *cough*.
3. There are plenty of smaller cults out there that were formed merely for the idea of community and a sense of belonging. Yes, some of them end disastrously like The Manson Family or Jonestown, but others are just a bunch of hippies that smoke weed all day believe in some batshit interpretation of life. (not saying I would join one though. I'm not that stupid.)
4. My views on that have changed.

Hope this helps.

1.Why? Suffering isn't required, it's inevitable. I'd argue that the good things in life make it worth it. Why is suffering such a "bad" thing to you? Other people should be free to suffer as much as they want if it doesn't affect me.
2.How many North Korean life bloggers do you see? How many do you see on message boards? The only information we have on daily life there is either North Korean propaganda or "western propoganda". That's a red flag. There's no point in America painting this wonderful utopia in a bad light.
>North Korea holds democratic elections,
Which are toooootally not rigged(are definitely rigged). It's not like their populace isn't allowed to leave, isn't allowed to communicate with the outside world, isn't allowed to say whatever they want about their leaders and other things we take for granted. I'm sure they just happened to have a dynastic succession of power in a completely democratic system with real opposition and everything.
>is innovating quite well
Is reliant on China and almost certainly full of severely technologically backwards villagers.
Right now you criticized Trump. Try moving to china and doing the same to their prime minister. Yeah, I'm sure North Koreans are actually more democratic and have Akihabara-like streets and doujin circles. America is just hiding it.

The idea of sexual crimes is ridiculous. With the exception of violent, physically harmful, forced rape, no sexual crimes are valid or should be acknowledged as a criminal justice issue. Yes, that includes statutory rape. Why you ask? I just don't think sex in general is that important or that monumental of a deal for less than perfect situations involving it to really matter. Sex is really not something so powerful that an uncomfortable or unpleasant situation with it should be considered a crime or anything meaningful. Unless someone actually beats you, or causes meaningful physical harm, it shouldn't be the problem of the justice system or the community at large. In fact I'd say if something sexual wouldn't fall under assault and battery when judged by those standards, it shouldn't be acknowledged at all. People take sexuality way to seriously in every aspect nowadays, from what you prefer to how comfortable it was for you to do it.

Democracy is a lie. A small village would not need democracy, but a constitution kept alive, dictated to the village, by elders who were leading members of the local community, parents and grandparents who lived in the very town they managed. Any collective large enough to require democracy shouldn't exist in the first place. It's just a sham to convince people they aren't being taken advantage of.

A man doesn't have to try hard to pin a woman down without causing large bodily harm. I wouldn't want an ugly, fat, woman to force themself on me and I think that sentiment extends to women. People should have the right to choose what happens to their body, whether that's getting a tattoo, or getting injected with anything, or anything else. Why is bodily harm such a big deal to you? Wounds heal right? Why does it even matter if you kill them? We're all going to die sooner or later. What's the big deal? Your standards are arbitrary while mine are objective. Their body, their decision. That's universal. What if your wife was raped?

See I just don't see what the big deal is. You talk about it under the assumption your counter-arguments have some weight to me, but all I see is an underlying assumption that all humans think rape is bad. Personally, I would never have a wife, and if I did get raped, well, I'll survive. Why is killing wrong if rape isn't? Well hey, I never said killing WAS wrong.
>> No. 679 [Edit]
Theft, assault, murder, rape. Most people think these things are bad and would like to avoid them. That's one of the primary foundations of society and you not thinking they're a big deal doesn't make it ridiculous. You just don't value society. Nobody's forcing you to, but you are benefeiting from it. If I could choose between living with people who value the same things as me or living with people who don't, I'll pick the former.

I don't see the pressing need to move "upwards" in terms of jobs. Even though many people will jokingly acknowledge the "rat race" that is society, they'll still nonetheless jockey for promotions or so on.

If you live only for yourself, you don't really need much to live comfortably (especially if you abandon physical materialism).

Money gives options and freedom. The default option is always shit in America. Maybe in Europe, especially places like Switzerland, that's not the case, wealthy places with a small population and socialist policies, but it is in the US.

Trying to preserve endangered species is (mostly) a waste. Sure, killing animals for stupid reasons (like using their body parts as snake-oil "medicines") should be opposed, but extinction of species has been a fact of life on Earth for millions of years before humans even existed, and outside of the fools who think something like Jurassic Park would be the coolest thing ever, we don't miss them.

>human activity included
Letting coral reefs or bees go extinct would be extremely stupid. There's such things as keystone species, where if they go extinct, many other things are fucked. Human activity isn't something most animals can compete with just like an ice age isn't. The difference is we have control over our own activity. Trying to not fuck everything up goes further than not making snake oil or fur coats. Unless you want everybody who doesn't die to eat insects and drink filtered piss, that's just how it is. Trying to save something like pandas though is a waste of resources.

If they die, they die. If humans can survive without them, fuck em.

There's more to life than survival. A lot, if not most people would also die.

"Poor people just can't budget"
1. I'm not saying poor people are always poor because of things out of their control and
2. I'm not saying all rich people are like this, but
3. a big subgroup of people who say 'poor people need to budget' often lack any budgeting skills themselves and the only thing preventing them from poverty is the fact they're rich.

Agreed. It's common knowledge that it takes money to make money. As such it can be very hard to make your way up when you have little to work with. I've had a lot of exposure to both ends of the spectrum and yes, the poor do have bad spending habits while doing stupid things but so do the rich like you said. For every poor moron who blows all his money on alcohol, cigarettes, and lotto tickets, there's a rich person who spends ludicrous amounts of money on luxuries and entertainments they don't need, such as cars, art, fine dinning, vacations, and more. I've known people living paycheck to paycheck with less than $10 to their name at times, and I've known rich people who spend more than $300 a day just on food.

People that are bad financing their money are or become poor so yes more poor people cant budget than non poor people.

To be fair, it can be hard to budget what you don't have and being poor in some ways can be more expensive than being well off.

>being poor in some ways can be more expensive than being well off.
It's a lot harder to buy in bulk if you're poor.

Well I find that they can't, I'm always amazed by it. I live among poor people and am poor myself but I find I am always financially better of than they are even when they make more, and this is with wasting money on anime merch and the like. They also rarely manage to save anything.

It requires a community larger than a village to live in any degree of security or comfort, other wise you are living in Africa pretty much.

I agree about democracy being stupid though.
