Why is this allowed?
Why do Japs like Clint Eastwood so much?
A better question would be why don't you like Clint Eastwood?
...do they really?
Well I remember Girl und Panzer more than happily ripping off Kelly's Heroes left right and center. I can't come up with a whole lot else off the top of my head.
Japan loves America and what is more American than Clint Eastwood?
but they hate the gaijins
>Japan loves America
He's won more Japan Academy Prizes than any other foreigner.
Know anything about Japan other than that they make cartoons and comics?
What says complete and total victory more than having them celebrate an iconic moment, when you were busy killing their soldiers?
>I was just pretending!
Pretty sure this is why it bombed in japan.
Huuuuurrrr, my little weeaboo homosexuals can't be this naive. The amount of self-loathing, american loving Nips would shock you.
>what is more American than Clint Eastwood?
/v/, please stop
You've never been to Japan before, have you?
well twist my nipples and send me to alaska
It bombed because it was complete shit, Plus they alienated yurifags by cutting out the deito from the manga in favor of crazy god bullshit, then alienated purityfags by trying to make it spec Ops with cute girls.
I think he is pretty popular over there as well. And there are Star Trek references in lots of shows.
I'm Korean though
>what is more American than Clint Eastwood?
Jelly donuts and burga
So, "it's not as if I like you or anything! Baka Americans" Counts as favorable?
that's almost as bad as chinese
They're Trek plebs though. Only ever TOS and maybe TNG on occasion.
DS9 Master race
But jelly donuts are Japanese.
That looks like the Defiant she is swinging around but it can't be. How did they know about the best ship?
Isn't he Canadian ?
Yup. But he moved away from that shit hole to become rich and famous.
But TOS is best
yes. when he posted shatner, he was placing a joke on everyone in the thread.
P-fucking-lease, that's worse than being Chinese.
Are we looking at the same map?
You fucking wish. DS9 blows every other series out of the water
And I would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for you meddling anons!
Oh silly anon what a beginners mistake
>Israel not in the top 10 even after all of the fucking shit we do for them
So becoming corrupted by money makes you become american ? got it
What's with the space before the question mark? I see this sometimes and I'm curious of why people do it.
They hate Obama because he's only been giving them about 85% of what they ask for instead of the usual 100% and not bombing Iran.
why do you care ?
Its becuase you did nothing and too late to stop the holocaust
It's called being part of the master race
La race supérieure
ncc-1701 is the fucking enterprise you retard
Are you just dense or are you completely mentally retarded?
but that's fucking wrong.
TOS is like a finely aged wine and all it's cheese goes so god damn well with it.
It's not to late to put you back in the camps. Those ipods wont' make themselves, and the Chinese are wising up to shitty working conditions.
I have. Have you? Oh that's right - you never leave your parent's basement.
Pro tip, anon: Outside of Akihabara, your typical nip citizen knows little to nothing about your chinese cartoons.
I cried at the end. Is there enough material in the manga for an S2?
I DON'T KNOW WHO TO BELIEVE
>Pro tip, anon: Outside of Akihabara, your typical nip citizen knows little to nothing about your chinese cartoons.
that seems a bit far-fetched though
>jesus, jews, and the casino in space
Not him, but I do it all the time. I picked it up from my time playing FFXI since I was stuck with Japs most of the time. So, I'd assume it's either foreigners or people that spent a lot of time with them in an online community.
I'd stop doing it, but it just doesn't look right anymore.
>14% of Americans hate themselves
Ignore those weird answers
in French you put a space before a question mark. The more you know
What kind of propaganda machine did the US roll out into Japan after WW2 to make the Japanese want put scenes from the US triumphing over them in their media, even after we obliterated two of their cities and turned them into radioactive cesspools?
That's the point.
Americans are just people from other countries
You should read a book called Embracing Defeat. Best explanation for it I've ever read.
The US rebuilt Japan, redistributed land to the peasants, built their economy up from the ground, scrubbed both cities clean, and gave them good dickings before they left.
That's just how French punctuation is. It's my mistake that I forget to the correct English translation when it comes to question marks
That's correct, but it'd be easier to understand if you dealt with the Elitist JP in that game. The only weird part is I didn't stop doing it.
I'm done blogging now.
We do it again sometime shit was fun
Wow, you people don't know shit about japan. They love america so much the american ambassador is a fucking celebrity in japan
Thanks /a/non, I'll definitely pick that up.
>hiroshima and nagasaki
Thanks for the recommendation, I'll pick it up.
There is also a lot of older folks who are grateful for Article 9 of the constitution and the pledge to protect Japan. But the economic/political/social rebuilding they did after the war are the most enduring reasons.
I knew the 11s were just acting tsundere for us.
>You will never read a manga from Araki about Bright Eye's bizarre adventures with Tuco
>obliterated two of their cities
They obliterated almost every city.
America has had a key role in Japan's modernization from the fall of the Samurai to their imperial conquests. We've built them, destroyed them, and rebuilt them again, guided them in every step they've taken towards becoming what they are today, and what they have been post-feudal age.
It's only natural that a culture which has become so entwined with ours would come to like us.
Pic related is representing USA
You are gravely misinformed.
Isn't that Swedish though?
Are you being purposely dense? Oh wait of course you are, you're a tripfaggot. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand filtered.
It would also be notable to point out that during the war the Japanese POWs where treated much better than the Allied POWs, and likely better than most Japanese prisoners had been treated in the past. The Americans tended to fight with more... empathy? I don't know what word I'd use, but due to our past involvement with Europe we had come to agreements such as not shooting field medics, the extent and use of torturing, etc. Things which Japan had not yet embraced, which is why we hear of so many war crimes committed by the Japs.
Granted much of that is probably exaggerated, but it is a known fact the Japanese tended to be more cruel to their prisoners and occupied territories.
Don't forget to give more shekel
Not him. But Anime is actually quite niche, outside of the shows meant for kids and the few late night shows that get mainstream appeal(SnK for example). Also, anime movies can be pretty big hits over there too.
Manga is much more widespread and prominent strangely enough.
Jesus, he looks so ecstatic to meet Clint. That's awesome.
uh, no shit. They were awful to their POWs
I go to Hiroshima almost every other weekend.
It's rad as fuck.
manga is more widespread because there are thousands of them and they don't all pander to otaku
and they are hella cheap, and sold outside train stations
>SnK for example
The manga is mainstream, but the anime isn't.
>before they left.
>implying the US ever left
They are literally sold everywhere except restaurants.
That is entirely wrong. It is the most mainstream anime to hit japan in years.
Yet it didn't even sell 100k BDs and DVDs. While the manga sells millions. Seriously, anime is not actually mainstream.
Stockholm syndrome, they only love America because you abuse them!
100k BDs? What has sold 100k BDs, period?
Also, BDs represent income from the niche otaku market. If you want mainstream appeal look at its affect on the pop culture and the merchandise it sold.
Compare those numbers before the anime hit and after the anime hit. You'll have your answer then.
why is this thread allowed?
Evangelion. But that's the point. Anime is incredibly fucking niche.
> look at its affect on the pop culture and the merchandise it sold.
Not much. It's a manga read by millions. Very few people watch the anime, and those are mainly otaku. Anime is niche.
What is /a/?
>Mexico hates us.
That is a serious case of Tsun if I do say so.
Mexico has good reason. The US is the main reason half the country is run by drug cartels.
most of the ones that like us are already here
Are you serious? a manga is like 500yen, one single anime bd with 2 episodes is 50000yen
You're comparing apples to oranges
The Japanese were a warrior nation. you know, like klingons.
And what happens when you beat a lady Klingon in a fight?
I never implied that you idiot, also only young people in Japan actually like America, the elder hate it
You don't have to like it, but Eoten Onslaught is not actually mainstream. You want mainstream? Check out something like Sazae-san.
>People who have never been to Japan trying to pretend like they know what they're talking about.
You're fucking retarded if you think they don't watch anime.
>M-Muh BLUE RAY SALES
They watch it on TV you fucking retards or download it online like the rest of us.
>They watch it on TV
Except they don't. Late night anime has extremely low ratings.
I'm not the same anon, also sazae-san is also an anime, so you really do admit that anime is mainstream
>Johnny Bravo was never mainstream, just look at the blue ray sales.
You truly are a pig in human clothing.
It's like common knowledge anything aired after 10pm in any timezone gets shit ratings
I want /v/ to leave
fucking kill la kill
The US didn't just beat Japan. They destroyed everything wrong with the country and made it better. Japanese people aren't bitter about it -- it was a positive event in Japanese history. If anything, there's some shame about pre-WW2 Japan. Only old senile Japanese people are bitter about it and those fags are bitter about everything.
Google. These things aren't secret.
So you don't have a source.
Also there are a lot of people with their tv recorders programmed to record those anime
I'm not him though, what if he does have a source?
Then he should post it
Sazae-san is different. It's a family show that's been airing for decades. It's like the Japanese Simpsons, only more popular. The stuff we watch is mainly targeted at otaku and has very little presence in the mainstream.
>The three beefy crunch burritos he shit out into the toilet gave him the inspiration needed to jump on 4chan and start posting blatantly made up facts about his falsified knowledge of something he has no experience with.
I'm not your personal google. This stuff is regularly released. If you can't find it, you should probably kill yourself.
>I just ate four big macs and the protein I gained from that experience has given me a new omnipotent sentience which allows me to just make up random facts and everyone who doesn't believe me is a retard.
>I'm too lazy to google. I want to be spoonfed common knowledge and then deny it if it happens anyway.
>Suddenly we're in a universe where it's possible to google events that never happened.
Wow, what a great age we live in.
I'll assume for your sake you're just trolling, and aren't so retarded to think ratings for anime don't actually exist.
I know right, science is the fucking best
Now now ladies, you're both pretty.
I'll assume for your sake you're autistic and not just some fat piece of shit who can't be bothered to back up his asinine claim that Japan does in fact not watch anime.
he dosen't know about the FNDS
It's the same reason people say "zed". Because they're retarded.
I'm prettier, right?
Front Mission 4 also rips a ton off from Kelley's Heroes
All anons are equally pretty I'm just more equally prettier than others
The Outlaw Josey Wales is SO GOOD. Holy shit.
As a Britfag I can confirm that the data there is incorrect.
They don't. Sorry, but Japan is not actually a super happy funland where your cartoons are seen as a serious medium. Other than Miyazaki movies and a few family series like Sazae-san or Chibi Maruko-chan, anime is seen as somehting for kids and otaku.
Shut the fuck up fog breather before we smack that metaphorical tea cup called freedom out of your pale disfigured hands and make you brush your fucking teeth.
Joke's on you, I'm only a quarter British.
Mother fucker, I live in Japan, moeshit is literally on the wall of every business in the country.
what are the other three
Because anime is used as an excuse to write off advertising costs for the source material. You know, the stuff that people actually consume, like manga.
Half Swiss. Quarter Irish.
God tier Swiss/Italian descendant.
Why aren't you drunk then?
>God tier Swiss/Italian
god fuck, how disgusting
I've yet to see anyone consume a manga. That must just be something reserved for the same type of people who think that Japan doesn't watch anime.
I was earlier.
Grandparents were Italian and my father was raised on the Italian/Swiss border. Yes, there is a Swiss/Italian border, uneducated Americlap.
>I've yet to see anyone consume a manga
Confirmed for not actually living in Japan. You've never seen anyone reading manga on a train? Do you think the publishing companies are just lying about manga sales?
It was a joke about you eating books.
You know consume has more than one definition, right?
You do know what a play on words is, right?
Or comedy? Do you know what a joke is?
For what reason do you have a problem with Italy?
No, that's why he hates anime.
Its not just me
the rest of world
You guys are fucking nazis
Saying something retarded is not actually a joke.
>Posting that people in Japan don't like anime on a website that is based on a website in Japan for people who like anime.
Oh my god
like I just said
only my older family
on my father's side
is Italian, I was born
in Britain and live here
You do know that Mussolini was overthrown by Italian partisans, right? And hanged in a city street?
That said Italy is a bit shit to live in, between a corrupt government, a mafia-controlled and overall shitty south that's supported entirely by the north, massive amounts of brain drain, and a fucked economy.
>A website for something exists! That means the thing must be universally enjoyed!
Especially considering the massive number of Marxists and Anarchists that lived there.
you two are still going on about this? Good god give it a rest
The Italian peninsula has fallen a long way from it's glory days, that's for sure.
Is the hate for one man really basis to hate the population of an entire country?
What is WWII Germany?
It was only a matter of time before the Americlap brought up WWII. And you wonder why we laugh.
But I'm Norwegian.
No one hates WWII Germany because of one man.
A Norwegian awake at this time?
It's called being a NEET.
It's 8 am, sandnigger. Why wouldn't I be awake?
That Poland-ball comic explains it best. They sucker punched us and we hit them too hard with our stick. Now they want to know if they are kawaii at the same time they are a depressed salary-man or NEET.
Hah. It's 7am here and I still haven't slept.
>Awake at 8AM
>On a Sunday
inb4 b-but I have important stuff to do
>Like browsing /a/ at 8am
>being awake at 8am on a Sunday
I do have important shit to do, it's called watching anime and reading manga.
Yet here you are, posting on /a/ instead.
I think this is just because the Japanese are so polite, they would think favourably of buttniggers.
I want to stop but I can't. Help.
France because the US got them out of a real bind during WW2, Poland because they really hated Communism and Britain because it's Airstrip One.
Nah, it's because they think the US will have their backs if they start shit with China and the US sent massive amounts of aid after Fukushima.
Man, I wish WWIII would happen already.
W-why isn't Australia topping that list?
Because Australians don't know what internet is
The real issue of that poll is that 14% of so-called Americans hate the USA
Traitors in our own land
Because mega fauna wanting to invade America doesn't count as people.
The French hate Americans. This is known fact.
Everyone hates Americans. It is known.
They're mostly extreme liberals butthurt we're not the USSA and extreme conservatives butthurt we're not Jebusland.
If the tables were reversed, and the U.S had suffered defeat at the hands of an enemy which then implemented the same post-war reconstruction policies the U.S. did in Japan, the outcome would have been far worse. Take the American South after the Civil war for example. A century and a half later they still haven't gotten over their defeat by their own countrymen who afterwards had nothing to lose from giving them all the benefits they themselves enjoyed and bending over backwards to bring them back as equal members of the union. Yet, by all measures of such things, this part of the country remains socially and economically deficient to this day. The Japanese drew upon a bedrock of cultural values and best practices extending back centuries which enabled them to take the opportunity to make the best of their situation after the war. They have nothing to be ashamed of. Just the opposite. They put us to shame.
You're analysis, in its ignorance of history, simple minded over confidence and lack of nuance, is very likely proof in a nutshell of America's cultural inability to pull off the kind of national transformation that allowed Japan, beginning in the rubble of total defeat and occupation, to become the second largest economy in the World in the span of a few decades.
And America had virtually nothing to do with that.
In fairness, we handled reconstruction in pretty much the worst way possible, pardoning the leaders and not really doing much to help rebuild the southern economy.
The South was socially deficient even before the war. Its defeat just cemented it's deficiencies as sources of pride.
> The Japanese drew upon a bedrock of cultural values and best practices extending back centuries
Those set of values also led to the indiscriminate rape and killing of entire cites. That kind of thinking was abandoned and that is largely due to its defeat.
>They put us to shame.
Now you're just going full weeb.
>America's cultural inability to pull off the kind of national transformation that allowed Japan, beginning in the rubble of total defeat and occupation, to become the second largest economy in the World in the span of a few decades.
Firstly, the Japanese mainland itself (with all the underlying infrastructure) was largely untouched by the war. Secondarily, Japan spent years floundering around with their economy, trying desperately to fix it (it's part of the reason why the yen is so inflated). And it all ended when they decided to implement free-market principles. And where were those principles perfected? Take a wild guess.
Also, who has the world’s largest economy? By far? America doesn't need to pull off a national transformation because America is already wildly successful. The same cannot be said of the Japanese. At least not back in the day. They ARE wildly successful today.
What gives Greece? We never even did anything to y-Ooooooohhh.
That italian punk has nothing on Clint Eastwood.
Lebanon was like a mediterannean Switzerland before jews came and ruined middle east.
>Eliminated from playoff contention by the Packers in the regular season
Those rare manga and anime that are anti-american are usually done for the extreme right wing Japs. The ones that want to go back to Emperial Japan.
Move to Switzerland. Like, right fucking now. It's a paradise, and the gun laws are as perfect as they can get.
