Explain this to me:
>everyone on /m/ is (ostensibly) a grown man
>even though we are grown men we like giant robots
>some of us go even further, and will actually watch programming intended for children to get our giant robot fix
>some of it is nostalgia, but there are seriously guides on how to get started with watching power Rangers... my 7 year old watches fucking power rangers.
Are we hopeless /m/an children?
Get your 3rd wave feminism out of here
Having a hobby doesn't make you a manchild.
Holy shit, I can't even remember the last time I saw one of those.
It sounds weird when you say there is a fairly active discussion board for grown men to discuss Japanese children's cartoons about robots, but so does "adult coloring book" or "model train affictionado"
Everyone likes to have fun.
My first mecha was a transformers toy I got in a gift exchange in like pre-school. I reached around in the bag to make damn sure it was a toy and not a coloring book. It's unforgettable, that's how my love for mecha started.
kids like the more super robot-y series, while adult men like the super robot-y series because they make them feel like a kid again and they like the real robot shows too, because they're cool. And of course the models. That's how I see it
My entire life is pretty much normal. Good job, car, family and friends. I like big robots. And that's okay. And people are okay with that. It makes for a lot of robot related gifts. Haha.
All my friends like anime, most of them like mecha or another particular genre, we all do goofy stuff and are pretty much successful in our daily lives. I do not feel hopeless, thou manchild part is true for me at least.
But anime isn't my only hobby. Horseback riding, farming, autocross, I amanchild beyond /m/.
I always wondered how much of /m/ is actually going into computer sciences/engineering/robotics? How much /m/en have pilots licenses? Also how much are in the military? Like how much do your guy's love for, not even anime, but a very specific concept/genre from japanese entertainment bleeds into your real life?
I dived into RC and lately fpv stuff because of mecha. If it can be considered /m/, then cars too. And now i diversed into engineering management but this is hardly mechanical field beside name.
The people who quote CS Lewis on that (and most don't even know he's the one who said it) almost 99% of the time do it specifically to excuse acting like a manchild that refuses tobe a normal responsible adult.
All he is saying is the attitude of "I'm too old for that stuff" is wrong, but people take it too far.
>All he is saying is the attitude of "I'm too old for that stuff" is wrong
And that's all I was using it to say. /m/ certainly does have its share of manchildren. All I meant to say by posting the pic is that simply being here on /m/ doesn't indicate manchild status.
>Being an adult
Has Tomino taught you anything?
>have fulfilling career making anime
>have to make Gundam all the time
>constantly bothered about Gundam
>just want to make anime
Just leave Tomino-san alone. Did he finally kill Tomino directed Gundam with G-Reco? Will they leave him alone?
Aside from compilation movies he only worked on two Gundam related shows in the last 20 years.
Because enjoying them does not mean that you're childish. It just means that you enjoy them.
Besides, as an older person, when you go back and watch the stuff you watched when you were young, you suddenly realise that you're catching things that the younger you never caught, the subtle things a character does, the occasional silly things happening in the background, references, cameos, etc.
You gain a different appreciation for the show.
>not dating robot lesbians
Could say the same thing about you guys who like this kinda stuff.
We can both be right.
Being insane is more fun anyway.
>girls that are mecha translators
>get unconditional love from the fanbase
How do gals like Kou, Chirlind and Starseeker do it? That must take years of work to earn that kind of respect.
Not a joke.
Everyone is a fat psycho
I like sci-fi in genreal and like mecha for the mechanical designs.
I don't know why having a hobby or having fun in a healthy manner makes you a man children, even though you are a full grown adult
Until you don't respect the robot, that is.
>Are we hopeless /m/an children?
Yes, as long as /m/ continues to dive into shitposting galore and fails for the baits by plebs (especially of facebook-kind) who think they are raiding /m/.
>What is changing the hardware as you need it
Robots can be any gender provided you use the right hardware, and of course, having the appropriate drivers and software for said hardware as well.
If the hobby concerns watching anime made for 8-13 year olds then yes that makes you a manchild. All Gundam, Mazinger, Getter, Grendizer, Votoms, Vifam, Patlabor, Macross, Mospeada, Southern Cross, Ideon, SPT Layzner mecha series goes into the 8-13 year old target just to name a few. I guess most guys/girls ? posting on /m/ are manchildren/girlchildren.
Pretty sure Ideon and Baldios were part of an attempted effort to make mecha shows for older folks? And then both of those got their asses cancelled so it didn't work and they didn't keep trying.
None of those series promoted xenophobia or political conflicts. All of them represented such things as evil or misled. And none of them have anything to do with the racist and paranoid rhetoric of /pol/tards like you.
/pol/ also arguably created GG, which takes itself about as seriously as anything possibly can.
You can explore the rest of this concept yourself, but hopefully I've given some hints.
Unfortunately, friend, /pol/ really is a hive of alt-right mongoloids.
>/pol/ also arguably created GG, which takes itself about as seriously as anything possibly can.
Pretty sure counter-culture movements originate because of cultural movements, f a m. And it was /v/.
Being alt-right/right wing doesn't mean you need to take /pol/ seriously. You're thinking in black and white terms and that's as pathetic as anyone taking /pol/ as 100% truth.
GG isn't a counter-cultural movement. A counter culture has more defining it than a paranoid fear that "feminists" are gonna take gaming away.
In what way am I thinking in black and white terms? The alt-right is pretty much directly attached to genuine casual racism, nationalism, and neoreactionary thinking.
Certainly, some elements on /pol/ ARE satire, but the idea that the whole is? Hardly.
>A counter culture has more defining it than a paranoid fear that "feminists" are gonna take gaming away.
A counter culture can be anything done in a reactionary manner, and there is more to GG than just that.
It's pretty clear you don't want a discussion here, just validation. Have a good day.
Satire or not, there's always been a division between /pol/'s particular brand of "satire" and what's generally posted here. Having a discussion about monarchy and democracy in an LoGH thread is one thing, two "WE WUZ KINGZ" threads in less than a day is another.
Yes, there's also attempts to create their own memes, slogans, and so on. I still wouldn't consider GG a counter-culture, just like I wouldn't consider any incarnation of Anonymous a real counterculture.
I thought it was a debate, too, but there you go.
What kind of faggot doesn't like giant robots? If you aren't whacking it to giant robots you can go take a long walk off of a short pier. If I found out my non-existent son was into humans as opposed to jerking off onto his gunpla collection I'd throw his ass on the street and disown him.
