I wonder how you will react to the creator of said trope.
>>
>>26518018
Literature has establishment support and is taken seriously by society. Anime is considered the lowest of the low. So anyone who wants to roleplay as an intellectual should be involved with literature (or at least cinema), not anime.
>>
>>26518097
>anime
>lowest of the low
I think you meant furries and mlpfags there

>>26518123
Anime is a form of television and cinematic animation. Furries are a subculture and bronies obsess over a single television show. So they are not the same thing.

How are those things mutually exclusive? Anyone with interest in visual media (art, film, and animation) will eventually learn about Japanese animation, and when they encounter it, they ought to have license to discern worthwhile works in the medium from worthless garbage.

Well, the important thing is that you found a way to feel superior to both sides.
>>
>>26518192
>they ought to have license to discern worthwhile works in the medium from worthless garbage.
Which will almost certainly involve pretentious posturing that would be better applied to literature and cinema instead. No matter how much of an anime "patrician" you pretend to be, people are still going to look down on you for associating yourself with anime.
>>
>>26518169
Not him, and I like anime as well, but you would have to be absolutely retarded to claim that anything save for a few series is anything but absolute shit.

The only people who unironically consider themselves superior for preferring a certain genre of anime over another are those who have had absolutely zero exposure to actual art. Again, not saying that anime is bad (I watch a lot of anime), but don't try to claim that anything but a few series are "artistic".

"shit" in the sense that it's not art.

That doesn't mean you can't enjoy it ("real" art is too stuffy and pretentious anyways), but trying to feel superior over "taste" in something like anime just makes you come off as a complete tool, that's all.

So you're just reiterating your prior point? Anime is all shit so it's not worth trying to distinguish anything good from anything bad? I can understand that it makes me look like a blowhard low-hanging-fruit faggot deriding stuff that was never meant to be "taken seriously", but why deny the license to contrast it with stuff in the medium that's more ambitious?

>associating with anime

According to this logic, if someone can judge the quality of a French animation by virtue of being trained in visual media, it entails that they are "associated with" French animation.

Satire is a type of deconstruction, but deconstruction is not a type of satire.

NGE isn't a satire, but it falls into the broader category of genre deconstruction.

It's a little tongue-in-cheek at times, but not a satire.

I actually agree with your point, but I think you are confused about the terminology.
>>
>>26518515
If you had explained what is satirical about it, then it wouldn't be bait. We get that it is, as the other guy said, a deconstruction of the genre, but, by that logic, just about anything can be a satire.

See, if you'd had seen anything made beforehand, you'd know that this sort of thing is already an established trope.

It's a massive example of satire. I don't think you've actually seen it or know what satire is if you don't get that.

Like, I can't even explain why it is satire because it is blatant that it is the oldest series you've seen. I mean, damn; I only saw a handful beforehand back in 2001 but even I saw how it was a satire.

My apologies, I made that assumption because it was the most likely premise which would make your argument coherent.

In that case, let me say that you haven't established any connection between distinguishing good from bad in a medium and "pretentious posturing", nor have you defined it, nor have you shown why it is inferior to mere enjoyment. Care to elaborate?
>>
>>26518648
The trope is present because it is commonplace in the mecha genre, but it is used to an effect that departs significantly from the traditional mecha genre.

This is literally the definition of a deconstruction. NGE is a by-the-book genre deconstruction. A satire is a deconstruction that includes some particular elements of comedy, which NGE doesn't fully indulge.

I get the feeling that you are underage, because you are the only one here trying to derail the topic by making offhand comments about age.

Projecting won't save you. Please stop regurgitating what you read on Wikipedia and actually defend yourself. I cannot do the same because it is blatant that you have no interest in the genre whatsoever.

I can definitely the magma diver episode being satire (muh expansion), the power outage one (Fuyutsuki is t. Foreshadower), and a few others, but every single one?

And the characteristics of a lot of the characters are so specific that, even if they were amalgamations of multiple characters, it created such a hybrid that there is originality there. Not to mention that many parts reference things WAY older than Anime, or even the Japanese culture (e.g. Shinji's Oedipus Complex).

Episode 10 is obviously satire, and there are probably satirical elements in every episode, I will concede that from the many I can think of; however, I would like to see you be able to justify the entire plot and the entirety of every single episode being satirical in-nature.

It's the other way around, by the way. The default position is that most anime, including moeshit, isn't worthy of being called "art" and that only stuff in the vein of Ghibli films is salvageable from the medium.

As far as fiction books, War and Peace is my favorite, followed by the D'Artagnan Romances (the Three Musketeers and its sequels).

You are not nearly as smart as you think you are. But you are at least very pretentious. Why should watching Blade Runner be mutually exclusive with watching, say, Koukaku no Pandora? You just want social validation by associating yourself with things that are considered (or you think are considered) "sophisticated" and "intellectual." It doesn't even matter if you've actually watched Blade Runner, it's enough that you associate yourself with it.

Pandering theory states that animators, manga artists, light novel writers and game designers don't make things because they like them, but because they expect otaku to buy them or because they have somehow been forced into doing things that otaku like. And it just so happens, every single time, that all the things they supposedly are "pandering" with are exactly the same things that casual Western viewers hate. Nobody has ever accused mecha or cyberpunk anime of pandering to anyone...

Pandering theory supposes that creators and otaku are two completely separate, distinct groups of people with no overlap, which is completely false.

>>26520455
That's a pretty narrow definition, and a strictly negative one. Why is it not "pandering" if the artist likes whatever it is that's being depicted, but still deliberately expects the material to appeal to a certain crowd? Liberal directors are said to make films "pandering" to liberal sensibilities, etc.

But even in your excessively strict concept, there are (admittedly anecdotal) counterexamples.

>(on watamote:) We often have a talk that "What types of girls are there in popular manga?" and we predict that "Which type of girls would be popular next?" In the meantime, we made up a character and she suited the theme.

>>26520487
Definitely watch it sometime if you're getting a kick out of Kurosawa. But if you watched Kagemusha recently (within the past few months), I'd hold it for a while. To my memory, the movies resemble each other in a lot of ways; you might risk getting "burnt out" on the aesthetic if Kagemusha is still fresh in your memory.

I mean to say that it centers on hypothetical "otaku-proof" content that is generally viewed negatively or considered "cheap". Of course pandering itself, as a practice, has a negative connotation. In common use, however, fairly neutral (or at worst partisan) things like environmentalism or nationalism can be pandered.

Here's a translated post from a Japanese person.

>I wonder why they love watamote so much.
Nerds who read Japanese manga are sympathizing with Mokocchi?

Cultural imperialism?

I don't get why it's necessary that the author dislikes the content. Americans would point to something like The Birth of a Nation and say it's pandering to racists without giving a second thought to it being born of some cognitive dissonance or weird manipulative ploy. In the same way, I think most people understand manga artists like cute girls and are not mistaken in identifying content deliberately made to pander towards those with similar tastes. They also wouldn't be mistaken in thinking that sometimes the cuteness is exaggerated or emphasized for mass appeal or for effect. That's not something unique to Japan. That's business.
>>
>>26521522
I'd have no problem if it was one girl who had a crush, but when you've got the whole female cast dripping for a guy who is bland as bread in all aspects, its hard to get into. Shit, even fantasy with dragons, magic and shit is more believable at that point.

The idea that "otaku" things are wrong and bad and everyone should stop doing them and do Western friendly things instead.

It is what it is. I am not deciding what pandering theory states, I am describing what it states. I didn't come up with it.

>I think most people understand manga artists like cute girls
They really don't. They believe that they hate them and would rather work on some gritty cyberpunk epic.

>and are not mistaken in identifying content deliberately made to pander towards those with similar tastes.

Back to the "pandering" point, here's some shit from the Danganronpa dev team:

>We figured that, if we make this game and market it as a visual novel, it's probably not going to do very well. In order to avoid that problem, we decided to add a lot of gameplay elements in order to make it more appealing--to draw that distinction between adventure games and visual novels. Actually, when we were developing the game, when we started to incorporate the interactive elements, many times, the staff would say, "Do we really need this? Why don't we just tell the story as it is?"

Those incorruptible Japs man, never folding to external pressures, never compromising their artistic vision to those damn "gamers"! You're fucking deluded.

>Within Japan?
No? I am obviously talking about Westerners.

>Are you really going to try and tell me otakus aren't largely resented by the greater Japanese public?
Yes because that's outdated information. And what does it even have to do with what we're talking about?

>Back to the "pandering" point, here's some shit from the Danganronpa dev team:
Doesn't have anything to do with pandering.

>Those incorruptible Japs man, never folding to external pressures, never compromising their artistic vision to those damn "gamers"! You're fucking deluded.
I never said Japanese creators are not susceptible to any pressure. I never said Japanese creators don't take into account commercialization and market conditions. I never said anything about gamers.
