No, this is my wife.
at least it wasnt amagi boob service, that shit was criminally awful
I wonder how she feels that all of her worshippers had their cultures, cities, and books razed to the ground, never to be seen again despite them being pretty as fuck
This is an Aztec Former Goddess (Servant)
The aztecs were obsessed with cleaniness and hygine, they had a dedicated civil class of street sweeper, bathed daily, and had waste mangement systems to divert feces out to their artificial island gardens to act as fertilizers.
All of the spanish accounts remarked that their cities were most well kept and beautiful cities they had ever seen.
>I actually liked the ridiculous proportions in Dragon Maid but honestly the boob service wasnt that good.
It is current manga canon that the boobs represent their dragon breath organ. No idea how it applies to male dragons.
Sorry anon, I actually don't speak spanish despite being an azteceaboo
I usually defer to /r/AskHistorian's book list, since the people there actually know what they are talking about, it's one of the few good things to come out of reddit.
That being said, here's some I was recommended on recently, that might not be on their booklist.
Are for understanding specifically stuff like their literature, poetry, and their thought process in that sort of context.
I was told in no uncertain terms that https://www.amazon.com/Arquitectura-Prehispanica-Ignacio-Marquina/dp/B000IBDBT8 is the definitive resource on mesoamerican architecture, but it has no english translation. I have a few other recommendations for stuff like art and architture but I don't think that's what you were asking about
I forget the context of what these were reccomended for in particular, though the last one is obviously in terms of military policy and warefare.
There's also obviously the primary sources, being actual native books (though there are only few that escaped being burnt and pobviously aren't in a language you know) Cortes's letters, The True History of the Conquest of New Spain, but these have errors especially in regards to culture as both Cortes and Bernal Diaz didn't really understand the culture they were seeing and had political reasons to exaggerate or downplay certain elements, so these should really be read with the context of other works that have the benefit of modern research so you know what's disputed or known to be wrong.
Is it weird that I think her eyes are her most attractive feature?
>I wonder how she feels that all of her worshippers had their cultures, cities, and books razed to the ground, never to be seen again despite them being pretty as fuck
Not Cortez fault that they had such a fragile arrangement.
>It originated in 1427 as a triple-alliance between the city-states Tenochtitlan, Texcoco, and Tlacopan, who allied to defeat the Tepanec state of Azcapotzalco, which had previously dominated the Basin of Mexico.
They got rid of the previous empire.
>The empire extended its power by a combination of trade and military conquest. It was never a true territorial empire controlling a territory by large military garrisons in conquered provinces, but rather controlled its client states primarily by installing friendly rulers in conquered cities, by constructing marriage alliances between the ruling dynasties, and by extending an imperial ideology to its client states.
I guess that did not work out.
It's accurate that other nation's in the region played a huge part in the toppling (cortes and his men would have died had the Tlaxcala not decided to spare and help him), but Cortes and Spanish were directly responisble for not merely toppling the empire, but systmatically destroying the culture, cities, and records.
That would not have happened, otherwise, reusing existing infrastructure and cities, even ones long abandoned and occupying them, was the norm in the region.
Tenochtitlan would not have been toppled and burned to the ground, it just would have been occupied by whatever group succcesfully sieged and took it over. The cultural practices and history wouldn't have been destroyed, and not nearly as many of the native books would have been burned. What happened was the burning of the library of alexendria, but times ten thousand. It wasn't just a ton of info, it was nearly the entire history of an entire branch of human history in addition to european and asian, and culture and their cities.
Modern mexicans are mostly mixes of spanish and natives. like 95% of the actual native population was dead within a century after this all happened, mainly due to smallpox.
Well, that's not what quite happened either.
It's 6am here and I didn't go to bed so i'm too tired to really explain further, but it was the actions of Cortes and other conquistadors that really amounted to the systematic destruction of culture. Spain itself and the Church didn't want that, it was considered exceptionally cruel and ihumane even at the time: Cortes actually had a warrant for his arrest and there was other spanish forces out to stop him right before shit really went south with the aztecs out by the governer of Hispaniola because they wanted normal trade with native groups instead and was acting out of line. The letters he sent to Charles V that I mentioned before was him trying to save his own ass and justify his actions to not be punished by the crown. Many friars and other church officials who came to the region after the aztecs were toppled were instrumental in saving what records we still have left and condemned the actions of other conquiestadors as they were doing what cortes did to other kingdoms and empires in the region.
The spanish as a whole actually kept most of the social hierarchy and stuff intact: native nobles got to keep their positions and shit as long as they payed taxes, and many of the cultural traditions were still being praticed (though it was also pretty common for them to be stamped out as being pagan). This is partially why a lot of mexican culture has a lot of native influences., and why there are still Maya and other people who live and have traditoons, because the spanish just had rights to these huge swaths of land and didn't really give a shit who lived there or how as long as they got the money.
It was really just conquistadors going apeshit and wrecking shit murdering and burning, and then and dieases killing of everybody who was native who was still left to pass knowledge down that really did it
Another example: Constantinople is still around as Instanbull, isn't it? It wasn't destroyed to the ground. Same for most other cities and their culture and their texts.
Obviously, ransacking, destroying, and burning of texts did and does happen as part of warefare elsewhere, but it's not quite the same thing and it should be pretty evident by the results: We don't think of native american stuff as being a whole third subset of human history alongside western and eastern. We don't teach or have huge references to native american (by native american, I mean "native cultures of the americas", not just north american native tribes) culture or history like we do those, either. You can think of all of the unoiquely european or asian tropes or visual motifs or random cultural tidbits that show up in popular culture that simply doesn't exist with mesoamerican or andean culture in the same regard despite being equally urbanized and complex.
We would litterally have and hold mesoamerican and andean culture and history in the same regard and level of detail as ancient greece or japan or china or egypt otherwise.
Love how there were supposedly enormous white cities with tons of riches but now there is nothing, even when those cities and temples were supposedly not that old.
Most of it was probably bullshit but I wouldn't dare to say what was bullshit and what wansn't
>80% of replies is about history of Quetzelcoatl himself and it's culture
If only Maidragon threads were actually this decent
even though i don't know jackshit about them,and i'm okay with it
Well, you were saying that the cultural eradication was an intentional element of them trying to maintain control over the region, which would be incorrect.
The cultural eradication was just the conquistadors in particular being greedy destructive assholes. The actual spanish's plan to dominate the region would not have involved that.
I liked Lucoa a lot more after I rewatched Maid Dragon. At first she's just a kind of amusing titty monster, but I gained a lot more love for her on my second viewing. She's a silly, but she also seems really motherly and caring. The type that would let you rest your head on her lap while she fingers your hair while you fall asleep. Not to mention she would most definitely be ready and willing to do anything in the sack.
Also, her eyes are strange but oddly cute.
Kid actually has been showing off his magical abilities in the recent raw chapters.
>Casted an invisibility spell so they don't get noticed by animals in the forest they visit
>Put a sleep spell on saikawa so she doesn't notice Elma in dragon form.
It would be extremely painful
the orange looking wall boards and the yellow tint in the roof foam makes it look like they're enclosed in trumps head.
No, and they take steps to keep it hidden from her. She's just a regular girl, so they can't afford the secret to get out, I guess. Thinking about it, though, that makes Tohru's reveal to Takiya super reckless and selfish.
the actual response to that scene and the criticism, was this scene, and this anime in general
The author should've gone with Coatlicue for this character, but I guess Quetzalcoatl is the more recognizable option.
Bruh it's fucking Texas. Literally the only place they forcefully tell you to take off their hats is inside the Alamo. They snap at you even for taking them off not fast enough.
>I actually liked the ridiculous proportions in Dragon Maid but honestly the boob service wasnt that good.
I'd say the same. It didn't help that Lucoa's udders tended to be poorly drawn in half of her fanservice focus shots.
Wow, that's pretty bad. Such nicely proportioned breasts are wasted there.
I'd say it's laziness in terms of costuming. I figure the amount of tailoring to be even, say, Mikasa must be hard for larger folk. There's so little effort that really needs to put into dressing up as Lucoa. Same for Mei from Overwatch.
I'm rewatching this already.
Dropped at first in middle of first episode. Just like I dropped Madoka at first.
>I dropped Madoka at first.
I feel bad for you son.
Recent raw chapters? You can read gook runes?
posting a classic
>implying we have enough shit about the tlaxcallans to even include them in the comparsion
Also the maya never even unified.
Any idea why they don't list the Cantares Mexicanos (2011 Miguel Leon-Poritilla edition)? Do they only care about English books?
Also, do you know what their thoughts are on philosophy researchers like James Maffie who have been publishing somewhat controversial papers and books on Aztec Philosophy and Religion?
Últimamente no seria la misma ciudad. La ciudad vieja fue destruida y enterrada y la ciudad nueva fue creada de forma Española (todo a fuerzas, obviamente).
I'm not familiar with either of the things you reference, so i'm not sure, but if you make threads about them and word the title right you could probably get some detailed responses, or try /r/Mesoamerica, where a lot of the flaired users (IE, approved by the askhistorians staff as knowing their shit) for that region also post.
Looking into it though, apparently the only english translation for it isn't that good, so that may be why.
>Huemac then had sex with these sorceresses.
I remember laughing for a minute straight while first reading that.
I'd like to see more of it used as backstories for series. Shame how most of it is burnt books and overgrown jungle now.
>todo a fuerzas
Eso es lo mas peor. Hay bastante geniales culturas nativas hoy en dia que nadie celebra o regularmente.
best girl right here in the series I definitely know she got a lot of trophies just sitting there in her closet of best girl #1 just take me home with you girl I'll just turn into a kitty cat meow and fit very nicely in your breasts yesss… (づ｡‿‿｡)づ
Came just wanting to post my dragonwife; left wanting to read Spanish-language texts on Pre-Colombian Mesoamerican society. Thanks, /a/.
As the other anon pointed out, it's true that it's true that it wasn't that sort of empire but it had its own stability. More importantly there was a trade of not only goods but art, culture, and religion. The dynamics between city-states in the region (mainly Nahua but others included) are often compared to the dynamics between Greek city-states.
Interaction with the Spaniards did not bring about an internal collapse. Rather the Spaniards made deals with lots of different city-states before manipulating them all against each other (only to later stab them each in the back afterwards). All while each city state is confused that these allegedly civilized people could stoop to such treachery.
>As the other anon pointed out, it's true that it's true that it wasn't that sort of empire but it had its own stability
There's actually increasing evidence that Tenochtitlan may have been even more in charge then we thought and it was even closer to a empire in a technical sense then we thought before.
Either way I don't think even as we thought it before now with it being an alliance between it, Texcoco, Tlacopan, and then the trbiturary territories they controlled, that it's inappropriate to call it an empire. The Tlatoani of Tenochtitlan still basically called all the shots and acted as one.
After this scene on the first episode everyone was super hyped and interested and Musaigen. All the drawfags picked it up and everyone downloaded the first episode and watched it together. It was plastered all over the catalog of /a/.
But after that EVERY episode was a boring piece of shit and people quickly lost interest one after the other. What was KyoAni thinking? Didn't hey realize that all the shit they animated was extremely boring?
>Well, you were saying that the cultural eradication was an intentional element of them trying to maintain control over the region, which would be incorrect.
Nah. It does not have to be that well thought-out. It can happen incidentally too. The result is what matters. It can also be a by-product of "those other people" as a result of ideology.
>like 95% of the actual native population was dead within a century after this all happened, mainly due to smallpox.
This is weirdly wrong. Not only do you have a weird definition of "actual native" but given your weird definition you don't include interbreeding as part of your computation for leading to the decrease in "actual native" population.
Moreover, in pointing out that the majority of modern Mexicans are Mestizo you're essentially arguing that there had to have been an enormous native population prior to this, contradicting your 95% claim. Also, from wiki:
>These deaths were part of a widespread epidemic which decimated the common population. Toribio Motolinia, a Spanish monk that witnessed this epidemic, said: “It became such a great pestilence among them throughout the land that in most provinces more than half the population died; in others the proportion was less. They died in heaps, like bedbugs.”
When using terms like Mestizo, Native, European, etc.. there often isn't one single good definition. In population genetics one may use the terms to refer to many different populations (in different contexts and papers), in law the definitions of the terms may vary a lot even within the same legislation, in linguistics the terms may apply more to the languages themselves than to the people who speak them, etc..
Really, the most relevant definition in people's lives is the cultural one. Does it matter that even Indigenous tribes/villages who still practice the old ways and don't even speak Spanish are composed of almost entirely (if not entirely) Mestizo people? The same goes for all the remaining native groups throughout the Americas (including reservations in the US and Canada). Similarly, do you stop being a real European just because somewhere up the line you have some non-European ancestor (if so there's virtually no real Europeans in existence)? Clearly the most sensible way to classify these people is through their culture.
>remaining native groups throughout the Americas
>Clearly the most sensible way to classify these people is through their culture.
So therefore, Ken-sama is true nihonjin.
I actually agree with what you said, though.
I wish that protecting and celebrating a given nation's innate cultural bits wasn't so debilitating to said nation's competition on the world stage. There really aren't too many successful states on Earth that balance a flavor of native culture with a sustained, high-level of global, economic competition. I'd say that Japan is one of the few decent examples--east Asia seems to be pretty good at it in general. Seems like the main key to success is not giving a fuck about how other nations or people feel about you. Then again, there's probably a price given all the soulless salarymen and declining birthrate. Do we save and practice the old ways for the sake of flavor and defined societies or do we abandon them all for the soulless global market grey mush? This world fucking blows. I want Nahua lore, gods and magic.
This is a harbinger of Armageddon (maid)
>worse. she lived with and received instructions from a god, probably Tezatlipoca
Why the hate, smoking mirror seems pretty bro to me.
>"Hey miss I heard you have a friend who's a rather tall and slim butler who's actually a NEET that spends his days in a housemate's room playing videogames all day. Well I know this one game called Skyrim which I'm sure he'll enjoy playing. Not that unrealitically difficult and unfair Dark Souls ripoff he's struggling with. Plus Skyrim's got some good ol' Dragon Slaying adventures, and I say I recommend Skyrim to your fellow god friends and your other human firend and her maid."
I just wanted to see Lucoa's dragon form in the anime. She nevers appears like this in the manga, isn't?
>he should be able to engage in sexual activity with the gods
Imagine licking those sweaty pits dry after they're nice and warm from boob friction all day
>every anime is just the same tired rehashing of weeb bait moe trash with giant gravity-defying anime tiddies.
were jap cartoons a mistake? i want something original for once
why the fuck watch this?
why watch softcore not-porn instead of just watching hentai if the only thing that matters in the show is the sex appeal?
because the sex appeal is a minor inconsequential part of maid dragon but you're newer than new so you lump it together with things like to love ru because https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect
then what other aspects does the show ever have?
if the main character was a REALISTIC girl, or better yet some average looking guy, would you still watch it? if it didn't have a moe blob with F cup tits jiggling around in a string bikini what else is there?
The main character would normally be an average looking guy except in this case she is an average looking woman because kyo-ani is progressive or something
Lucoa plays almost no role in the show
here you go friend, I imagine writing these thoughtful critiques is difficult without seeing the show just based on memes
I only know Coolkyoushinja from his hentai, and it's like 90% /ss/ with oppai lolis. Maid Dragon is probably the most eclectic thing he's written.
thats a bad thing
besides, i like big fat squishy juicy
crotch titsmore anyway
the fact that he publishes all those oppai loli /ss/ doujins under the exact same pen name that he uses for his many serialized stories (several of which have even gotten anime adaptations) is crazy. dude knows what he likes and has no shame in it
>eclecting thing only written
*teleports in front of you*
I admit the high school setting was kinda overused,but i enjoyed Hipster-kun and Ojousama
Just fucking add Spanish as a keyboard input language and you'll be able to switch languages with a shortcut, after that it's just a matter of learning which one is the acute accent key.
Also your Spanish is kinda shitty, but don't give up. Y es "estadounidense".
No but it's easy to get the context of what the spells are since when he casted the invisibility spell, an image of an eye was crossed out. As for the sleeping spell his hand was pointed to saikawa and she was knocked out instantly with the image of a closed eye being presented as well.
Kek, what mods would Fafnir install?
Skyrim with Dicks?
