Favourite anime themes?

Science fiction, psychological, philosophy, comedy, loli.
>>
Those aren't themes, moron.
>>
>>11319857
Good episode.
>>
comedy, slice of life, maybe a dash of romance.

not really into mecha. action and psych are good too.
>>
I wish there were dystopia and post-apocalyptic anime.
>>
>>11319901
I'd settle for just dystopia. Post-Cyberpunk plz?
>>
Steampunk genre is an attention grabber, no doubt.
I loved that anime.
>>
The word's "genre"
>>
>>11319873

Umm...
>>
>>11319919

Clearly you figured that out, now fuck off back to /b/.
>>
what anime is the op from?
>>
>>11319948

ergo proxy. highly pretentious, philosophical but still pretty kick ass.
>>
>>11319948
ergo proxy
you think it's gonna be like ghost in the shell but turns out to be some crazy mix of blargh
>>
>>11319984

It's not philosophical whatsoever. It's just a shitty adventure animu with a loli.

>>11320053
ITT we've never had philosophy 101 and thus cannot recognize it when we see it
>>
Ergo Proxy was the DVD series I regret buying the most.
>>
>>11320098

Oh my fucking god.

Alright then, you pseudointellectual fuck:
HOW is it philosophical?

I'd explain it to you, but your puny mind wouldn't be able to comprehend the DEEPness.
>>
>>11319857
YES SWIMMING IS A GOOD THEME HOW DID YOU KNOW?
>>
>HOW is it philosophical?

Simple. Like >>11320098 said, it's philosophy 101. They philosophical themes are present, just not deep. I heard somebody call it pop-philosophy, and that's probably the best way to put this shows content.
>>
>>11320185

They=The

Hope, the passage of time as it changes environments and characters, when characters try to put off things get shafted later on because they did not act when it was necesarry, etc.
>>
Modern War. Probably why I enjoy Fullmetal Panic and Library Wars.
>>
>>11320185
I think it's more like "philosophy-service." You know the views they're touching on, and get to go "hey! that's Aristotle!" A lot of it was metaphysics, like GiTS.
>>
>>11320145
It's got metaphysics coming out of its ass it's so philosophical. And there's one reason someone wouldn't notice.
>>
>>11320145
Like the fact humanity was not allowed to reproduce without permission? How society was monitored and controlled by a single being whom only 1 person knew about?
The way humans lived their life is a philosophy the author created. The end results of Proxies governing...the humans coming back to claim the land they destroyed...
It's a lot of things you easily ignore because you're too busy looking at D.GRAY MAN NOAH OMG
>>
>>11320185
Truth. Philosophy that the average joe can understand.
>>
>>11320228
>>11320246
>>11320185

I REALLY hope you are trying to troll me.
>>
>>11320253

That's just average science fiction. Holy fucking shit.

Goddamn D/a/ytime.
>>
>>11320299
This is the reply of a philosophy "expert".
FAGGOT.
>>
philosophical, mecha, slice of life, sci-fi
>>
>>11320253

Sounds like Gurren-Lagann.
>>
>>11320280
Yes, all of /a/ is trolling you.
>>
Gurren-Lagann is a very philosophical show. It tackles ideas of existentialism and collective consciousness. The Anti-Spiral is a creature that gave away individuality for the sake of safety, Gurren-Lagann represents Nietzsche’s SuperMan.
>>
philosophy is for phags.
>>
>>11320402
The average /a/ does not understand any of this and that is why this cannot be debated on this board.
>>
>>11320402
Oh shit. BRACE FOR DEEP TROLLS
>>
We need some /ph/ in 4chan.
>>
>>11320402
I didn't see any existentialism in there. It reminded me more of Objectivism, which is anti-existentialism.
>>
>>11320592

Simon and co. represent existentialism, they decided their life in something that will ultimately end but decided to fight for freedom nevertheless. They consider “living forever” something beyond mere survival. That’s why their machine, the rebellion crusader Gurren-Lagann, represents Nietzsche’s SuperMan.
>>
>>11320592

Exactly, the villians are the Anti-Spirals which are the pure definition of objectivism. Simon follows a path that says "the universe you believe in is the only truthful universe".

Weatherman says a shitstorm is approaching.
