I realized I'm into just about anything as long as there is a hot girl doing it.
>this thread for the millionth time
when will this flavor of the week end?
No, it isn't. There is something called super stimulus that has been proven to create a bigger response and to numb the body response to normal stimulus. It can be burguers, it can be super gigantic tits Don't be a retard
Pretty sure it can be both, brah.
Interpretations were left pretty open with this one.
Whether the 'Nice' pink gf was real or not is up to debate, but I can assure you this is what it feels like when you've lost someone you love. You lie there in bed with your mind eating away at you. If it was due to 2D obsessiveness, that's just a detail.
>I have shit taste therefore everyone does
>everyone is like me!
if you knew anything about the industry, the NEET problem, idolshit, the staff behind this, and the japanese stance on otaku culture issues, you wouldnt think that. Basically youre just proving youre new.
Has nothing to do with a girlfriend.
Me!Me!Me! caused the biggest spike and fall in thread quality I have seen in a while.
Working youtube link.
Anyone know if there is a 1080p version available somewhere? The compression on all the videos I've seen so far has been awful.
>Basically youre just proving youre new.
Spectacular insult there, fuckhead. That really proves your point.
Please, enlighten me on all those subjects you just threw into the wind.
Was this supposed to be deep? Like, there are cute girls out there for you but you choose 2D girls yourself and they are actually dirty fetishes given form and now they will devour you? Really?
It's pathetic. I mean, video was nice and all, but this message is just bullshit.
Please. Some autists like Anno keep talking how Otaku abandon reality and how that's pathetic.
But somehow millions of brainless drones following western music or movie celebrities is perfectly fine?
>and the japanese stance on otaku culture issues
You mean like the official government stance of accepting the otaku as "the most important subculture in the country" and supporting the anime industry?
Ever heard about "Cool Japan" and all this other recent crap?
It was supposed to be a music video made for an anime expo. It had a basic story behind it, but anyone trying to analize every single scene is a fucking retard.
Space > Queen Bee > Me!Me!Me! > Backstory > FPS
Thats how I think a alraune would force feed you her "nectar".
>the 2 first episodes are nowhere to be seen.
>satire and deconstruction
Not him, but I honestly haven't been here since the fall season of anime started due to the severe shitposting that goes on with every early episodes. Is that what people kept saying through out this video?
This is the End of Evangelion of lewdness
That little buttplug is so damn fucking hot. Not even remotely kidding.
This is something I need to remember for the possible futures I could have.
Full /lit/ isn't a compliment anon. There isn't a single board on 4chan that likes /lit/. The other book boards of /tg/ and /co/ think /lit/ has pretentious shit tastes and the hipster boards of /fa/ and /fit/ think /lit/ is for nerds.
Because they are masochistic sluts, >117305431 , because then they can wear kinky gear that allows teasing of their clits?
What is so hard to realize that it's a piercing with you cunts? The nipple is fine, but you just can't seem to imagine someone piercing their clits. For all the joking done about how most shit these days is vanilla, alot of you these days don't seem to realize just how vanilla you are.
The only thing that you're doing is self reflecting m8. That's the whole point of the video. Multiple levels. Lots of interpretations. So you going around telling others that the message is shit and related to "2D is bad" just means that you're the one that is struggling here.
10/10 most amabing animition i seen in over 1000 thousand years. sausage japan i am improvised!
>all those strands lead to blue vaginas
>There is no such thing as a good deep message, you fucking retard. Tell me one piece of art with a deeper thought behind it that's not just as edgy.
I think this is the dumbest post I've seen on /a/. I can't believe it's still happening.
They should make a full anime like this and not that Rebuild trash.
>walls are supposed to be vagina walls
>inside the vagina
Wrong. It's a large vagina, inside and already existing vagins, that is filled with smaller beings with their own vaginas (one of which ate someone).
I love it.
because they're both animated, they both deal with themes of escapism, fantasy, imagination, being young, some sexual deviancy (me!me!me! obviously moreso) and have pretty fucking awesome looking psychadelic visuals to boot
not to mention both tracks (even if me!me!me! does end up releasing some sort of single/EP) are fucking sweet
surefire formula for success if i ever saw one
I just love this moment he realizes he's completely fucked.
Sorry guys, but somehow this feels revolting to me.
No homo, just the feeling that this one really honest and direct approach to give us a mirror to reflect our own ugliness and primitive base feelings results in a punch below the belt.
This being a music video truly reminds me of that bad time during the 80s when every shit was ultra-sexualized. This isnt 'hot' anymore, this is absolutely disgusting.
I don't see the issue with sexualization or hypersexualization, I believe we should be free to indulge in our fantasies. I don't think people should try and escape primitive desires and undesirable qualities but rather accept them as a part of ourselves and do the best we can regardless.
It's wrong for men to get hard. When I see sexualization, it reminds me that I'm a subhuman male piece of filth and I have to go watch pure yuri magical girl series so I can wash the misogyny off me.
Again, that just means that you're not ready for self-reflection. Questioning yourself is important. Even if it doesn't result in any improvements. This video is great because everyone sees something different, it's openness means that everything that you take away from it has something to do with yourself.
Yeah, I get the message.
I just think that hyper-space vaginas with other vaginas inside, thousands of clit-piercings teethered to a SM slavemaster ultra sexual vixen simultaniously making everyone cum and vomiting into the MCs mouth with an organsmic face is a really hamfisted attempt to show the maker's utter contempt for us watchers.
It is provocative, though. And I guess this was the point.
>I guess it's to be different or grap attention?
Or one can genuinely find it hot because of how depraved and "disturbing" it gets. I'm not bragging or anything when I say I find it sexy; I just do for the reasons you don't.
The vomit thing is a bit of dream symbolism.
Dreaming about a beautiful woman pinning you down in a sexually suggestive manner and vomiting some nondescript liquid into your mouth until you begin to drown in it is apparently really common, and supposed to mean something.
Not at all. You are still going really delusional if you think that "/a/ quality" was going up with those threads. It may actually be something impressive with all the weedheads and the level of idioticy on /a/, but seeing the symbolism on this video it's not rocket science nor nothing to puff your chest about
I have dreams where two beautiful girls I cannot comprehend lure me in and then suddenly become demonic and rape the shit out of me with their dicks and I cannot resist because I'm under some magical spell.
My dreams are exclusively everyday occurences with a negative downside. But the negativity doesn't happen it's more like "man I barely studied for the hard test that'll come up tomorrow" then I wake up, panic as fuck and suddenly realize it's fucking Saturday and my subconscious is being an asshole again.
I'm not a normalfag at all. I just dont really like some video which basically screams: LOOK AT ME SHOWING YOU THE TRUE FACE OF EVERYTHING YOU ENJOY, ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? IS THIS NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE? THIS DISGUSTING SHIT IS WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU LIKE! SEE, YOU ARE A WORTHLESS FUCKING CANCER TO SOCIETY!
Sasuga Anno Sensei. This very much fits in his previous verbal attacks against the Otakudom.
No one said that it is. The point is that it led to actual discussion without or barely any shitposting. Interested /a/nons came in and discussed things. Even small improvements are good.
>ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
>IS THIS NOT WHY YOU ARE HERE?
>THIS DISGUSTING SHIT YOU IS WHAT YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU LIKE!
So it is.
>SEE, YOU ARE A WORTHLESS FUCKING CANCER TO SOCIETY!
Oh well. I'm still enjoying myself.
Stop taking it as an insult.
>You are projecting.
This is all you have to know. I urge you to sit back and think about it and yourself again. Anno is an otaku as well. Your reaction shows that this just hit really close to home.
Jealous as fuck, I wish there were other ways to get the first person lewd 2D experience, but VR and AR aren't ready for consumer usage. Robowaifus won't hit the shelves anytime soon, and non-VR games tend to be low quality and polygonal. Drugs aren't reliable, and I can't into lucid dreaming. What should I do?
Well, yeah. Still, there's no mistake in the fact that showing giant vaginas and hordes of girls with clit piercings ejaculating on command is possibly not a 'thinly veiled' attack on the hypersexualization of otaku-fandom of today.
In fact, this is so much 'in you face'-styled, that one must purposefully ignore the utter contempt of the makers for this sort of stuff and all people who hang on it.
Because the imagery doesn't support "YOU FUCKING LOSER OTAKU CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY! YOU ARE TRANSGRESSING AGAINST STATE SANCTIONED MORALS"
The guy and his ex-girlfriend are portrayed as victims, if anything.
Last night my dream was of a man-eating tree that could morph its branches and roots into cute lolis as bait.
It's one of those situations where you're turned on but also fucking horrified.
guilt manifesting through drowning usually has a different context -like actually sinking in water and drowning.
This sort of dream is more or less a part of yourelf that you're rejecting or compartmentalizing, and that's haunting your dreams because your subconcious is aware of the cognitive dissonance that kind of rejection creates.
The puking is symbolising the subconcious desire to re-integrate that aspect into your self, forcefully through whatever barriers of rejection you've built up to it. Usually, when anything emotional appears personified in a man's dream, it shows up as a woman, though not always. The person that appears is essentially just a carrier for whatever you've split off. Guilt and regret are possible candidates, but it's also something as fundamental as desire, expectation, excitement, anger -essentially the willingness to engage emotionally and actively with the world around you in a way that makes you vulnerable.
In the video notice how the 'girlfriend' character doesn't make an appearance until immediately after the vomit scene, where the recollection suddenly comes pouring into him. The narrative works on a literal level and a figurative one simultaneously because the dichotomy between the 2 pink-haired girls can be viewed as a representation of the character's affect personified, rejected as he disengages from the outside world, and then haunts him in a self-destructive manner as his desire to feel that fulfillment while refusing to open himself to what he's rejected (affect but also vulnerability) creates precisely the cognitive dissonance that his hyper-sexual idol character panders to.
Japan in not Anno or the people making this one.
There are still Japanese anime makers around who do not really like the idea of constructing an entire identity of a national pop-culture on the base of essentially hardcore pornography and the prostitution of drawn characters.
This video here is a critical caricature of this trend.
>mods deleting a picture no worse than a screenshot from the actual show
>mods deleting nsfw material on a board where no one has a job or should be browsing at work anyhow
>mods deleting not dubs, but trips
You're all awfully hard working despite doing it for free, yeah?
>This video here is a critical caricature of this trend.
It's not a caricature because it's meant to be appealing to the character of the story and then be subverted. Caricatures are not appealing.
>but it's also something as fundamental as desire, expectation, excitement, anger -essentially the willingness to engage emotionally and actively with the world around you in a way that makes you vulnerable.
But I think that is guilt. Guilt as in him realizing that he made the mistake of breaking up with her. Guilt as in him building barriers. Guilt as in questioning his own thoughts and actions even if it's as simple as not doing anything with his time. The guilt is forcing him to realize and remember.
I can understand why. The short itself isn't exactly work safe, but it's relevant discussion and the images are important to discussion. The fanart might not actually be any more lewd, but it's irrelevant so it's just past the gray zone.
Yeah, and this "hardcore pornography and the prostitution of drawn characters" gives us series like Madoka, Bahamut or S;G.
People who think anime of old is any better are utterly fucking retarded.
I watch anime since mid 90's. There were tons of dumb as shit fanservice or gorefest anime back then.
Retards like Anno or Tomino are crying how modern otaku don't like their mecha garbage teen drama anymore.
>and I can't into lucid dreaming.
I know I once tried and did some exercise for like 35 minutes before bed to get into it, but without success. I stopped after that but I still believe it's doable.
I'm still fucking amazing at daydreaming so that's a neat thing to do before falling asleep.
it's his studio whose creating them, and he also probably had at least a small overlook on the entire project as its going and has been going, but realistically he's probably not that much involved with them, probably the least amount of "producing" as you can really contribute is my theory
And you're allowed to think that. In the end it doesn't really matter what the motivating emotion is if the end result is the same. It's just that the puking itself is usually associated more with rejecting affect and closing oneself off from their own desires than running away from guilt, but both interpretations are valid.
This caricature here hits very close to home, and thus does its job extremely well, because it is appealing.
These girls are so goddamn hot and sexual and attractive that you want to fap to them, but they are at the same time so disgusting and immoral that you immediately feel bad about fapping to them, because you feel that you fell into the trap made by the creators, who designed them on purpose to cause such a reaction.
this is somehow worse than fapping to 3D bestiality, feces eating and other extremely dirty shit.
that shit is universally reviled and considered to be absolutely disgusting, leading to everyone who openly admits to get off to it, to be shunned by society and their peers.
But hot curvy girls with porno-star bodies, innocent but lewd faces, and clit-piercings that brings them to perpetual orgasms while dancing suggestively, is pretty much the concentration of all 'normalfag' sexual tastes. In itself, having such tastes are not bad and you wont be shunned by your peers for liking these 'fetishes' (that arent really fetishes, as they are very natural triggers of sexual reactions) - but together, they become even worse than shit-eating porn - because you are aware that you have just been reduced to your lowest, most primitive, base instincts.
You cant be even called a sicko to like this. A sicko is still a human.
No, you are just a sad animal in heat, who is slave to his own libido.
>These girls are so goddamn hot and sexual and attractive that you want to fap to them, but they are at the same time so disgusting and immoral that you immediately feel bad about fapping to them,
I don't think there is anything wrong with fapping to 2d. But that being said I think Anno was involved in making this short because this and EoE are the only things that ever made me feel guilty about fapping
>These girls are so goddamn hot and sexual and attractive that you want to fap to them, but they are at the same time so disgusting and immoral that you immediately feel bad about fapping to them
It sounds to me like you just have some issues coming to terms with your own sexuality. I definitely don't feel bad about beating off to slutty videos. Nor am I bothered by satisfying my most primitive instincts. Some people take masturbation way too seriously.
Can you upload it somewhere? That segment is like ear sex without all the horrible complications of real ear sex.
Honestly even the last I guess minute or so of the song would be nice too.
>you immediately feel bad about fapping to them
No, I really don't.
>you are aware that you have just been reduced to your lowest, most primitive, base instincts
>No, you are just a sad animal in heat, who is slave to his own libido.
See, I don't understand why you're trying so hard to make this into a bad thing, like I'm supposed to be ashamed like I'm some "animal" that can't control himself. I don't lack self-awareness, either; I'm pretty damn aware there's some underlying meaning to it, but I'm also able to put that aside and enjoy it as the parade of debauchery it is.
This makes me think of all those manime fags screaming how moe should die.
You're talking as if there are two parts of "you". There isn't anything like soul or some shit nigguh, hormones, upgrinding and shit might give you different and conflicting goals but no matter which path you choose it's still you.
Just because you give in to temptation it doesn't mean you lost to yourself or some shit.
I'm not that guy, its how seriously you're taking all this I find funny.
Seriously it's like you just got through your first year of psychology and now need to spout your horse shit to everyone.
If you are your own master, then you are a master of your self. If you master your self, your self is your slave, and the master of that slave is your self. There is no distinction between them at that point. An accurate analogy would be a dog holding its own leash. You are not an entity distinct from your self -that is a contradiction.
You're appealing to a higher authority to be the master of yourself under the assumption that the self is inherently an inferior master to some abstracted ethic.
This is what I've been listening to. Just put it on infinite repeat and go.
This doom-scene is actually one of the most significant one.
Against the cancer of hypersexualization, the MC's Id, his rationality that has been driven into a corner, is resorting to bloody violence to defend itself and still loses. Not only physically by having his body being torn apart, but also by receiving the kiss of the semen demon with an intoxinated smile, giving up his last shred of humanity and dignity to the It.
Are you keeping yourself suppressed and moderated or are you liberated by your self-control?
The same results can be achieved with wildly differing techniques and taint further behavior with unintended consequence.
death by snoo snoo
It is also the first and only instance where he tries to actively take action and fights for his dignity, resisting his animal urges.
This one compared to his absolutely stoned face at the beging when the girls were shaking their asses around him, is a very clear contrast.
In some way, he has fought the law and the law won. Tragic, but at least he tried.
Thanks anon, I may have to make my own snippet with most of the end portion though.
That repeats really fucking well though, definitely keeping it.
>Every second I've been writing this I've been listening to it
>It keeps growing on me and changing my opinion before I can finish and hit submit
WHY DOES THIS THING REPEAT SO GOD DAMN WELL?!
The problem is when it's harmful to the self. And really, it's not about how he was bad for leaving his girlfriend, it's about how he feels guilty for doing it. Everything in the sequence comes from his own head, it's filtered through what he finds appealing, and it's a reflection of him not finding his own situation satisfactory.
And I think there's something really important there, what with how many people on this shitty website I see putting themselves down and reveling in some form of self-destruction or another or basically wearing the "life is shit so why bother" attitude like some kind of sick armor. So here's this guy holed up in his room watching cartoon porn and lo and behold it's not hedonistic freedom or anything and it doesn't allow him to escape his problems.
It's good, but I really like the beginning.
I've been listening to both.
Yeah, took a little fiddling to find the right timing, but it turned out really well for looping purposes.
This is the serious point Miyazaki and Anno never seem to address. Do they think young men giving up on life and turning inward and to escapism is something that happens in a bubble? In a society that's healthy?
Instead of addressing the larger structural issues that lead to hikikomori and NEETs and the like, they put all the blame straight on those damn, dirty otaku. Not that the message of, "Escapism won't solve the problems" is wrong and should be entirely ignored, but the fact that they want to put responsibility square on marginalized fuckers is yet another symptom of the problem.
All in all, this piece is another evidence that Japan still doesnt know how to fix things: Engaging the symptoms and blaming the victims instead of fixing the underlying root causes.
This is very Japanese, actually.
I wake up everyday 7am, go to work, go to gym after working, come home and shut myself on games and anime, yet I don't see any reason to do any of this. I guess I'm just used to it, but life is shit, so why bother anyways?
Rewatching this again for the lewd parts is way better than reading those long texts
As long as society works for them, they don't understand why it doesn't work for everybody.
The natural, of course, for a self-important pseudo-intellectual with no theory of mind, is to assume that those who fail were simply inferior, and weak in ways that lead them down the wrong path because it was 'easier', without seeing the harm they do to us all by not endeavoring to shoulder some of the burden that helps to marginalize them.
It's not that the game is broken, it's their fault for not winning!
>otaku are poor victims
Of what? In case you people don't know otaku hobby is crazy expensive. Average otaku is not some fat fag living in his parent's basement. They are people with good jobs and good income since they need to if they want to support this hobby.
Not even mentioning how many female otaku are there. Most Pixiv artists are female. Most doujin creators are female. Go to any japanese con and see how many girls are crazy about anime.
The stereotype that otaku is a fat faggot who don't bathe is bullshit from the 80's. The modern "moe" anime killed those otaku. The modern otaku is completely different.
You know stuff like Welcome to the NHK or Watamote that sell otaku content while at same time critizicing or making fun of otaku resulting in a sort of “US OTAKU, US OTAKU!” backpatting sort of effect? It’s kinda like that. The “US” is very important, the people behind the video are most definitely enjoying it: this is exactly what they want to draw.
That first part of the dream with the cute girls in striped panties dancing is one of the most cheerful things i have ever watched
Oh, fuck off. Stop romanticising their escapism and lack of willingness to put themselves out in the world as them suffering under some sort of oppressive societal regime. The men living in their childhood homes at 30+ without ever having had a job in their lives and who are too reluctant to step outside of their comfort zone, instead burying themselves in a hobby are not victims cast aside by "self-important pseudo-intellectuals" with "no theory of mind." I'm a useless NEET and I have no delusions about why I am the way that I am.
>otaku are actually people with good jobs and good income
>they are also women
>moe killed the loser otaku
Then what is Anno even talking about? KyoAni saved anime and Japanese society at large!
Yeah, Japan has been in that course for more than 30 years. And now, since Abe's arrows didnt hit shit and the economy slided back into recession, the societal breakdown will definitelty arrive. But it wont be a breakdown like some sort of American/African styled riot, but a very Japanese one, which is a slow dying and rotting away in the core, leaving nothing but an empty carcass behind.
We, in the Occident, shouldnt be complacent, though. As there are already signs for systemic societal breakdown here as well. When widespread social mobility dissapears and corruption rules the day, we will break down even worse than them.
>I'm a piece of shit; therefore everyone else must be too
Would you play an FPS about shooting your zombie waifu?
Breaking news! Every single developed country is in the same or worse state than Japan.
The only difference if the lack of immigrants you can use in statistics and claim everything is fine.
It's not that nips aren't breeding and don't care about long term relationship. All rich people are the same.
>mfw my shrink talked with me while sitting in an armchair
But the NEET are really not to blame for a society with literally ZERO social mobility.
Havent you seen or heard about that whole Manga-Kissou population? Tens of thousands of working age people as old as in their 40s still without home or family, earning small change with several very shitty paid jobs and living a nomad-styled lifestyle, sleeping a few hours each week in different manga coffes?
There is absolutely no way they can ever break out this fate. There is no way they can ever have a family or even own a home (even by renting one).
The NEETs arent to blame for wanting not to come out of their comfort zones of their parents and end up like these drones.
In the end, it is Japan's absolutely shit corporate culture to blame that arent recruiting any full-time/full-pay workers anymore, cant fire the old people who are getting unproductive because of their culture, but are instead recruiting young part-timers (working full-time, mind you, with unpaid overtime) that are paid a 3rd while doing the same work.
And it's the fault of those damn moe cartoons, I tell you!
He didn't mean that means are breeding
He meant that rich people from every developed country aren't breeding but countries other than Japan are inflating their numbers through immigration.
>It has nothing to do with a girlfriend
Yeah, okay pal. I think it has to do with all of those other things too, but if you don't think that an actual failed relationship was involved then you should go watch the middle segment again, particularly where we walks away from the crying girl who wants him.
You know what would have made this scene cooler?
If the visor cleaned itself off Samus style.
Affluent Euros and Americans are breeding less and less despite having more sex. The entire EU non-immigrant population is at below-replacement birthrates and the US is right behind them.
I'm just keeping rewatching thw moment of switch to red music and Empresses appearance.
The most epic part of entire thing.
It is a good scene though.
I prefer the Vagina Space Ship, though.
I made a better version last night optimized for use as a ringtone, with and without the lyrics section. Check it out.
Looks like South America, China, India and Africa have come to take us over.
It's also not hard to see why these people would be pushed toward hobbies and interests surrounding creative media, where there's a constant demand for new, fresh blood, individuality and creativity are celebrated instead of suppressed and talent has more of an impact on success than conformity.
You'll have a more fulfilling life being a parasite that tries but never manages to become a published mangaka or scriptwriter than someone who successfully becomes a member of the corporate ladder in a lucrative salaryman position.
They've constructed a society around the idea of work being whatever hellholle it needs to be to squeeze the most labour out of its workers for the lowest cost, and this being absolutely the only choice for anyone who ever wants to be financially independent, own a house, start a family and be happy -to force people to endure those conditions as a necessary sacrifice to secure some future.
And now the aging babyboomers are shocked that their newest generations are simply opting out in droves. "If this is what is necessary to have a family, I'll find happiness without a family".
Can someone who is more clever than I make a reasonably looped gif/webm of this scene?
>All these retards trying to figure out the deep message of the video, can't you people watch or enjoy a music video without coming up with some bullshit theory your ass came up with
>These girls are so goddamn hot and sexual and attractive that you want to fap to them
Speak for yourself
It's true that I find it hot before things turn "red", but after that it just completely turns me off
The fuck is depth? Music is music, as long as it sounds good and the listener enjoys it, it's good music.
I was referring to long term effort as a musician rather than effort put into a single song.
>The fuck is depth? Music is music, as long as it sounds good and the listener enjoys it, it's good music.
Spoken like a true ignoramus. Go study music theory.
>I was referring to long term effort as a musician rather than effort put into a single song.
This doesn't mean shit either. Despite what Shounen Jump tells you, hard work does not beat talent, though it is a necessary supplement to talent.
>7 minute average
>3.5 hours of original/additional/music video content
Do we have any idea which studios are going to be participating in this thing?
>thinking a repeating beat with some black guy shouting DAT ASS DAT ASS over and over again is on the same level as an 19th century musician devoting years of his life to learn the violin and then create a song unlike any heard before
>putting Dune on the low-brow side
Bitch that book was far more about politics than any sci-fi content. Hell, it had a lower effective tech level than reality does, given the total lack of computers and the prevalence of melee weapons.
I know music theory, theory exists to make music sound good, it doesn't make it deep.
Why 19th century? What's with you guys circlejerking over the old fucks? I get that they're influential but that doesn't mean you have to be dead to make good music. I do agree on the DAT ASS bit, but again, it's a matter of effort.
I was just under the impression that it was something that it wasn't. Expectations were let down.
It's not a big deal, but I thought it was going to be bigger. Still excited to see what's going to be coming out.
Referring to depth as compositional depth, no, but you have to keep in mind that most of the effort in pop music (and electronic music in general) goes into synthesis, effects, and mixing rather than composition. Again, it's a matter of the effort put in, depth doesn't mean jack shit. I do think classical songs have more effort invested into them than a pop song, but that doesn't make it deep.
Classical music had just as much flavor-of-the-month shit at the time, if not more so because composers were completely dependent on their patrons and catered to their tastes. The only reason classical is considered "deep" as a genre is because in the few hundred years since then time and forgetfulness have ground away all but the very best examples. You're basing your entire argument off of a cherry-picked highlight reel of classical works. A few hundred years from now all but the best works of our time will have been utterly forgotten as well and people will jack into the matrix with their implants to complain about how much better music was back when you had to use your ears to listen to it. It's all the same shit.
Sure, but keep in mind that most of the works made with that technology will pile it on for the sake of novelty and intensity rather than art or skill. It'll be like artificial flavorings in the fast food industry, only transplanted to shitty pop music. There's gonna be great shit too, no doubt, but there's still going to be a pile of shit to wade through before you find it. There always has been, right back to the beginning, and there always will be.
>Again, it's a matter of the effort put in
Again, it's not a matter of the effort put in. Talent is a fucking thing whether you choose to acknowledge it or not. More effort from a talented composer will bring about a better result than less effort from a talented composer, but a non talented composer will never be as good as a talented one.
>So… I watched the video “Me!Me!Me!” and I have to say that I am impressed by both its beautiful animation and message. In short, it showcases the dark direction of Japan’s media, and those who submit to it. Anime has been saturated with sex over story and advance gaming companies offer synthetic relationships that do damage to Japan’s already low birthrate. The subculture of people that follow eat it up. They seclude themselves and, as shown in the video, abandon their real relationships for their dangerous hobbies.
It is one thing to have a hobby… It’s another to give in to an addiction and make your life based around it.
This, I feel, is a bit of a love letter to the words of renown animators Hideaki Anno and Hayao Miyazaki. “Otaku” (fans) have ruined themselves and the industry, and the industry profits off of its own bastardization. It is a vicious cycle that needs to be stopped… but, sadly, will not anytime soon

Well, I don' t live in japan, but I suffer from the same lack of a purpose in life, I been working since I was 14, and now I am 26.
I got a good job that I hate but it pays the bills, I also got two houses in my name, pne I am paying and the other I got from my mother when she died.
I just don't see what I will do in life besides playing games or wasting my time with shit like Anime.
I did have girlfriends for a time, and its one of the best things in life to be kissed by a girl who likes you, but of course it could not work for very long.
I watched most of the man in my family be fucked by divorce and alimony, I almost got a girl pregnant when I was 15, and the fear of being fucked over by alimony, which is heavy around here, keeps me from ever getting serious with any girl I dated.
What I am going to do with life? Anything path I take will leave me with regrets. If I live like a otaku I will regret all the chances I wasted with the women in my life later on.
If I get married and my wife leaves my life will be fucked beyong repair for many years. There is no winning move in the game of life.
>there are literal cringeworthy fedoras trying to defend listening to classical music in 2014 in this very thread
You need to stop caring so much.
Just do whatever you like, whatever you want. You seem to be in a position to do a lot more than other anons here, and for that matter you're better off then a lot of people in the world.
For their sake, don't waste your life thinking about what you want to do. Just go do something, and do not care about what happens. Do what you like, and if you can't do it, do something else. Life is so short, it doesn't really matter.
That's my opinion on the matter, anyway.
Reminder that audio is the plebbiest most unintellectual by design medium in existance
Remember that you are not allowed to use the word intellectual to discuss music, as even terrible trash literature like harry potter is far superior to you in terms of intellect required
>that you immediately feel bad about fapping to them
No I don't. This guy seems to feel bad, but he seems to have issues with his girlfriend that prevent him from enjoying things.
>All this bullshit asspulls when anno calls you the fuck out for your destructive and Harmful behaviour.
You are the one asspulling. Anno stopped calling people out a long time ago. Now he just makes fanservice and money.
Its actually about the otakus. It's a creative description of the whole subculture: In the video the man was about to sleep. This is figurative representation of a person's first step into the world of otakus. MiMi, the girl was your representation of the common ideal waifu. The small screen represents modern media and the corrupion of his dream suggest how media has corrupted the idea of moe and waifus. Him trying to fight back after remembering his ideals was representation of otakus now entering the industry to fix it. However he lost, representing how otakus in today's industry are fighting a losing battle between ideals and how to make their works sell.
Some thought are complete, the rest she lets you finish yourself because she is your toy. Says so herself
>waa the normies are out to get me ;_;
>i alone understand what Anno, Slayer of Otaku, means!
NEETs are basically the SJWs of /a/
>incredibly vocal minority
>every non-pleasant occurrence is at the fault of their arch normalfag enemies
>they think you have to be one of them to fit in
>double standards about what type of blogshit is appropriate to discuss
>"but it's different when it's us!"
>"stop oppressing me, normalscum!"
I don't really get why everyone thinks this is commentary on Otaku culture. The symbolism is pretty prevalent and obvious, and it doesn't really lead there. If anything it seems to mostly be about the vicious cycle of porn addiction, the ways it negatively affects actual relationships, and the helplessness that men feel in the face of it. Is everyone just conflating the recent threads we've had about Anno's opinions on Otaku culture with a music video he barely had anything to do with?
The whole point is not being able to see half the lines, so it turns into little snippets. In that one, there's no half-seen tantalizing bits of lewdness, just isolated fragments.
Reminder that masturbation leads to unhealthy on demand dopamine release which results in depression, lethargy, lack of motivation, and hedonism induced dopamine receptor downregulation leading to even worse effects which mastrubation ceases and ejaculation withdrawl sets in
not when you fap more than 3 time a day, because you couldn't get pussy
>not when you fap more than 3 time a day, because you couldn't get pussy
>not fapping 10 times a day
Your libido is shit, bro. You drinking soy milk or something? You got man tits?
>Did you see the threads last night?
You mean the one /a/ shit up, as /a/ loves to shitpost whenever they get a chance?
>n-n-no those were all other people... nn-n-n-no true /a/non w-w--wwwould ever funpost
reminder that your betters, your superiors at /jp/ fucking LOVE funposting
nobody was moralfagging
/a/ was spamming bait and dubs
you do realize that correctly realizing that Anno is calling people out for being disgusting and the message of it is that escapism Is Not Healthy is *NOT* moralfagging but is merely identifying the obvious message at work here
dude i fucking love funposting
some retards actually think /a/ doesn't love funposting though even though in reality this board is a powderkeg of autism ready to blow at any second
>You mean the one /a/ shit up, as /a/ loves to shitpost whenever they get a chance?
Stop projecting. This shit always happpened, but it was never this bad. And no one ever decried shit like elitism and pro-normalfag shit until recently
Funposting is fine. In moderation.
If you want to funpost hard go to /v/ or /jp/ or /co/
He's not a victim. Sorry you seem to be retarded
Unless you count being a victim of your own escapism and losing what you had in Real Life counts. (That's the message of the video)
Yeah no. As soon as we talked about it people started posting this shit on other boards. And then people started coming here. The first two threads were great and had some of the best discussion in a long time. Everything after that got shitposted to hell due to crossboarders and normalfags. Blogshit and 3DPD was the only thing in those threads.
His entire journey is about him trying to fight back against their lewdness, losing, and then going right back in to it. It's a vicious cycle within which he is helpless. How is he not a victim? How is his being consumed by his own lust not an obvious message that's being shown?
Exactly. He was a misogynistic pig who deliberately embraces escapism. He got what he deserved. Anno is sending a wake-up call to otaku "Get your shit together or we will slaughter all you disgusting male pigs"
Anno has some criticisms but he's certainly not anti-otaku in any way.
>/a/ was spamming bait and dubs
That explains all those /v/ reaction pictures and people using virgin as an unironic insult, right?
Just because you do doesn't mean the rest of /a/ does. Those threads had plenty of crossboarders, but even if it had /a/nons shitposting, that doesn't justify it. Every board has shitposters.
Siztra is certainly, undeniably /a/. That doesn't mean his shit was good.
Why not just stop altogether? Shitposting isn't justified just because other people do it.
weak b8 mate. Your first try was better.
Every single one of these threads has been devolving into the same shit, aren't you faggots tired of it yet?
Reminder that you suffer from Unwarranted Self Importance
Reminder your narcissism is causing you to be delusional
>T-The board always agrees with me on everything!
>I-if someone disagrees they're not from here
It's very common in NEETs and other worthless shutins.
