Do some anime/manga/chinese cartoons have an intentional political agenda, subtle or not?
>>
>>100031710
Yes, watch Angel Cop, uncensored version.
>>
what was the agenda ?
>>
>>100031844
I just get the feeling there's a subtle undercurrent of typical Japanese xenophobia and animosity towards immigration and outsiders. It's not the first time I've felt it watching manga either.

>The original Japanese-language version of Angel Cop is controversial for its antisemitic plot points. In the original Japanese, it is revealed that Jews are the main threat to Japan's standard of living,
oh wow

The Nips are still stuck in WW2.

You SJWs are idiots, lol
>>
>>100033551
I'm nothing of the sort. Just curious about how politics seeps into everyday things where you wouldn't naturally expect to find it, like my chinese cartoons.

I like how they depict religious people in SnK
>>
>>100031903
You do know that most allusions of the bad guys is an insert of Japanese fascism, right? Most bad guy 'foreign faction' ironically look like Japan's aggressive past. While stuff like Outbreak Company outright has Japan as the invaders.
>>
the whole manga and anime also other media that come from nipland is their propaganda.
tell me how many people suck up in these media, mezmerized and wanting to serve grorious japan empire ?

Generalizing like that is stupid.

>tell me how many people...
You're talking about weeaboos and if you're here longer than a week you'd know their existence and behavior is frowned upon around here.

You haven't watched enough anime if you think Japan doesn't show extreme self hate that is super imposed onto the villains and the enemy militaries in many anime. Anime creators are not a very nationalistic lot most of the time. They often poke fun at or outright show disgust at their imperialism. Then there are shows that just decides to ignore it and write in another Japan.

Well mostly, besides the usual part about one of the main characters being precious 'oriental' snowflake which just happens to be one of the best fighters world ever saw.
>>
>>100031710
Code Geass and you cannot counter that.
It's also the only anime show I'm aware of that depicts terrorism in a positive light.
>>
>>100035249
Don't they keep hammering the point that terrorism had too much unintended consequences? That was a major theme of the show.
>>
>>100035245
Nah, the best fighter the world has ever seen is Levi and he has a French name (people calling him a French Jew in SnK threads).
I wasn't really bothered by Mikasa being overpowered as her strength mostly comes from the obsessive urge to protect Eren rather than from her mother being a Japanese.
>>
>>100035311
Just watch episode 1 of R2. I'm disgusted every time.
>>
You mean like that PLA newspaper about GuP?
>>
>>100035382
Girls und Panzer? What was the article about?
>>
>>100035338
I didn't claim she was the best, I'm aware that title belongs to Levi. Also it wasn't meant to be a complaint.
Actually I'm kind of surprised Isayama just made her Eren's bodyguard and not someone who influences the main story more strongly than just being obsessive about MC.

Japan is training their young in order to like military stuff to prepare them for the inevitable attack on Beijing. The Japanese are escalating tensions over the Senkaku islands by doing this dastardly deed.
>>
>>100035582
That is the fate of female characters in shounen manga. Nothing new here.
>>
>>100035532
An opinion piece published on 22 January 2013 in the China National Defense Newspaper, a subsidiary of the state-owned PLA Daily, criticised the anime for promoting "militarist sentiments behind the guise of cute characters"
>>
>>100035610
Senkaku is ALL Chinese so far. Unless China actually wants Japan to reactivate its army. The land was legally sold to Japan. It's all manufactured outrage.
>>
>>100035737
Wow. They actually made an effort to promote it. They should make a regular column devoted to anime.
>>
>>100035610
Well China isn't only claiming their islands, but also the sea around, now that they know ther's oil there.Same for Korea's territory, they obviously want it too. When they have finished exterminating Peru's population, I suppose they will start to attack their other neighbours. Then get nuked, thank God.
For now, all they can do is whine, make 5 years old draw pictures of japan destroyed at school and create online games where they kill fictional japanese soldiers to steal Senkaku.
Oh and of course point and yell at Yasukuni temple while spending millions celebrating Mao, one of the worst criminals Earth has even beared.
Pathetic.
>>
zeta gundam did it alright

Yet again a chinese propaganda thread.
China's government should use its money elsewhere. To save its slave children for example.
>>
>>100035964
Or introducing free healthcare system for every citizen.

>>100035964
Bullshit

China smog is best in world!

>>100036087
China smog has moved to Korea and Japan now too.

I want to learn more about the movement pattern of air masses in South-East Asia.
>>
>>100037350
>>100037350
Fuck movement patterns.
Air moves like Chines Communist Party wills it.
They have enough people with paper fans for that.

Gate is very NIPPON STRONK
>>
>>100037350
The airflow stops inland at China and vectors out towards the east. The smog can't get any lift above the mountains so it migrates east.
>>
Saint Young Men and Therma Romae are both guilty of this. They masquerade as a fish out of water story but its all about how great and wonderful Japan is.

That's sad. Therma Romae seemed funny and I wanted to read it. Now I'm not sure.
>>
>>100031710
Maoyuu maou Yuusha.

Fuck that manga and anime. It's total liberal garbage where the rich are the evil douche bags and the poor(the serfs) in this case are just innocent victims.

Not to mention GATE. Every liberal shits on it and hates it because it's conservative as fuck.

But but... the serfs are people. Yeah stupid and poor people with inferior genes. They're the niggers, sandniggers, spics, and jungle asians of the real world

Utena and parts of Sailor Moon had a feminist agenda. Though the theme of girls dominating/beating up boys is quite common, it can be made obvious, in SM those messages were even explicitly stated (though there were also very girlish parts).

In Japan, just like in the West, the arts are often left-wing oriented. One of the worst modern examples was Outbreak Company with its hamfisted social justice message.

MuvLuv is full of political agendas though it suprises me is that America isn't the most retarded of them all despite the obvious attempts to make them look bad.

>>100039263
This. I remember this pile of crap. Dropped it at the 4th or 5th episode cause I couldn't stand the mentality of the Japanese chick, so reminiscent of the pre-WWII Japanese military 'sacrifice yourself for your country, if you are struggling, then it's only your fault and complaining will make you lose honour, so you'd better get in line, you piece of shit'. Yep, that was one big wankfest to
>ye good ol' military values
Also, girls attending a military academy in skirts. And ponytails.

Code Geass does question terrorism for terrorism's sake though. Let's be clear about that.
