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.

A lot of hobbies can be considered childish, like wargaming or modeling, but you are correct, /m/ does watch a lot of children's television.
>>
>>13800178
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

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.

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.
>>
>>13800598
>Only adults watch Gundam or buy gunpla
I never said that. I said that generally it would make sense if kids preferred super robot over real robot, while adults would like both.

Lately some of the most popular movies, for all audiences, are about toys.

The world has become childish. Enjoy your sentai, son.

If nothing else, OP is right that Power Rangers doesn't need a fucking guide. The fact that you can just prop a kid in front of the tv and he'll watch it is proof.

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.

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.

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.
>>
>>13809985
>manchildren/girlchildren
It's just manchildren. It's a catchall.

I'm pretty sure the target demographic for Patlabor was people at least old enough to have income to buy the OVAs.

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.
>>
>>13813023
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.
>>
>>13813033

/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.
>>
>>13813086
>/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.
>>
>>13813092
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.
>>
>>13813101
>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.
>>
>>13813108
It looked more like a debate to me.
>>
>>13813039
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.
>>
>>13813108
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.
>>13813113
I thought it was a debate, too, but there you go.
>>
>>13813120
Surely you wouldn't be suggesting /pol/ forces its memes everywhere? You must be some kind of... cuck!
>>
Who cares?
>>
>>13800178
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.
