Favourite anime themes?
Science fiction, psychological, philosophy, comedy, loli.
Those aren't themes, moron.
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.
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"
Clearly you figured that out, now fuck off back to /b/.
what anime is the op from?
ergo proxy. highly pretentious, philosophical but still pretty kick ass.
you think it's gonna be like ghost in the shell but turns out to be some crazy mix of blargh
It's not philosophical whatsoever. It's just a shitty adventure animu with a loli.
>Science fiction, psychological, philosophy, comedy, loli.
those aren't themes
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
It's got metaphysics coming out of its ass it's so philosophical. And there's one reason someone wouldn't notice.
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
Truth. Philosophy that the average joe can understand.
I REALLY hope you are trying to troll me.
That's just average science fiction. Holy fucking shit.
This is the reply of a philosophy "expert".
philosophical, mecha, slice of life, sci-fi
Sounds like Gurren-Lagann.
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.
The average /a/ does not understand any of this and that is why this cannot be debated on this board.
Oh shit. BRACE FOR DEEP TROLLS
We need some /ph/ in 4chan.
I didn't see any existentialism in there. It reminded me more of Objectivism, which is anti-existentialism.
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.
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.
