#introductions Hi all, decided to join even though I haven't been active on tumblr for about 2 years or so. I drift in and out of fandoms somewhat regularly, but I'm fond of Mawaru Penguindrum, Touken Ranbu, Aria, otome/josei drama CDs and Tolkien.
reached the ghost part in the anime and uh... i wonder how this was received by manga readers at the time. it's more characterization for the teacher but at the same time i'm like more scuba diving plz.
i still don't like the girls' school uniform, lol. if the school itself had some interesting design to go with the pink flowing dress then yeah, but it's just the typical japanese school...
I'm sloooowly making progress on my anime backlog - finished Infinite Stratos (man, Uchiyama kinda sucked back in the day but it was only his 3rd MC role so he's improved a lot) and Kyou Kara Maou is next. I don't remember anything but I'll watch it just for the voice actors. You don't get to hear most of them regularly in seasonal anime anymore.
This is the first time I've seen someone include skincare goods with their doujinshi/zine. Usually it's something like stickers or a tote bag, haha.
can't wait for whatever else anime news network has in store for the rest of the year
so far we've gotten: promoting a propaganda movie for a dangerous cult, platforming a nazi, naming victims despite official pleas not to before funerals, and CEO collabing with another nazi to form a new cryptocurrency and playing stupid when called out on it. (I refuse to believe anyone would be dumb enough to jump into business with someone before at least googling their name)
@viridiian on the other hand, there's plenty of anime with basically the depiction of blond or red haired blue or green eyes large breasted white girls. The glorification and the cross appropriation between the whites and the Japanese is obvious. A lot of East Asia is anti-black, and although some cultures are admittedly straight-up xenophobic across-the-board, there are plenty of places that are just anti-black but except white people.
all these men so PRESSED at news sites mentioning that kyoani valued women and intentionally made itself a place to provide them opportunities.
these types would've been the same guys years ago who raged at free existing, crying that "fujoshit" was ruining the industry (a lot of them still do)
‼️KyoAni sells high-res digital images online for 216yen each. ‼️
The money directly goes to kyoani, since it's downloadable picture, they dont need to spend time ship real stuff out. ‼️It's a great way to directly support them financially.‼️ https://kyoani.shop-pro.jp
fic on pixiv, nsfw mention
I'm seeing a recent(?) trend of pixiv fanfic authors putting "ero is fantasy" disclaimers for unrealistic sex scenes. did jp fans go through their own drama of ppl shitting on eachother for writing anatomically incorrect porn fics. i still vaguely remember wank about that during the LJ days
