Why is chinese anime (donghwa) so unpopular on /a/?
Harro wercome to shitty wok, can I take you order prease?
Because manhwa is superior
>decide to watch my favorite donghwa
>It's a really good Slice of Life that takes place in Beijing
>Main character Chang wakes up, looking at the early morning smog
>Turning her government issued radio on, she listens to the weather broadcast as the 800th consecutive day of industrial smog continues to blanket the sky
>Walks down her broken stairs and onto the stone floor that she and her family use as their table
>She can smell the fresh scent of cooked dogs on her bowl of rice and meat soup
>She finishes her meal, before walking to the well outside and brushing her teeth with extremely safe mixtures of paint, bleach, and pure mint
>Chang then gets onto her bike and takes a deep breath of the smog in the air
>On her way to school, she remembers she forgot her phone and her paper with all of the exam's answers on it.
>Taking a shortcut home, she rides through rows and rows of dilapidated shacks, over a bridge suspended above a river of perfectly healthy green and red colours, before narrowly avoiding a Tuk Tuk ramming into a truck and catching fire from faulty brakes
>Her Dad sees her not at school and gives her a beating for being a delinquent
>Rushing away, she knows she cannot miss her exam, but she is confident she'll pass with the answers now in her possession
>Parking her bike, she runs to the train and hears the screams of a couple as they fall through the government-standard flooring to their deaths
>The train passes multiple stations, before stopping at Xiaohuangfenlong Grand Station.
>Sprinting off, she jumps over the top of the escalators, laughing as some poor woman falls into the conveyor belt and has her body torn into pieces by the industrial gears
>A loud screech followed by a bang is heard; her train just derailed and fell onto passing traffic
>She takes a sip of her lemon water, not paying attention to the street oil lining the lid, only to see a coal truck collapse onto someone and kill them
>Making it just in time, she passes her exam.
>Friend recommends this show as something that's better way than SAO
>Decides to watch the show so we have some stuff to talk about other than work
>Pretty much the same thing as SAO protagonist-wise, just more game mechanics lingo and less haremshit
At least the animation was pretty.
Because they had no noteworthy shows to begin with. But now they have some pretty decent stuff.
But I'd rather see what the gooks have to come up with if they ever decide to compete.
pretty much all most aspects of China's cultural is unpopular on 4chan, or I say western media because the Chink is a closed society, and only some racist meme are licking created by foreigners. Most of 4chan still think some how Mao erased all in his cultural revolution, but what he did at best thanks to that was to created a generation of uneducated fuck twats (hence the street shitting fucks) and purged the old belief of Confucius aka muh emperor along with new belief of democracy (it was a good thing)
It's cheaper to kill someone than to cripple someone in China. If you hit someone with a car you risk causing him permanent harm, which under chinese law means you have to pay a % of your income to them for the rest of their life. While you just need to cash out up to 8000$ to their family if you kill them.
They don't have Good Samaritan laws either. Anyone who would help can be sued by the victim (for manhandling, or whatever reason) and would be forced to pay for the victim's medical needs.
Cause not everyone enjoys it, i do like king's avater, was pretty good for me, but honestly most of china anime is try hard copy jap anime, like they cant be bother to try out something totally different...
I'm out of the loop with Chinese related stories. Are they obsessed with sex like the Koreans? It seems like every manhwa that I read is about sex. I've yet to find a non-sex related manhwa. Even then they ruin the stories by projecting their beta-ness in their MCs. The only redeeming factor with manhwa is the art. How does the Chinese hold up?
>It seems like every manhwa that I read is about sex
Because you're horny as fuck anon
>God of High school
>Tower of God
>Girl of the Wild
These shitty manhwa isn't about sex
Someone isn't necessarily going to be interested in something just because it's similar to anime. Anime is made up of a lot of cultural, narrative, aesthetic and commercial elements that all add up to why people are into it.
>kancolle and idolfag
No wonder why you're a disgusting weeaboo
I once read this manhua about this guy who's accompanied constantly by the ghost of his childhood friend, it was pretty good
>Tfw you will never have a ghost loli keep you company at work
Remind me of that doujin of the guy who fucks the ghost of his childhood friend.
Who is actually in a coma.
So he becomes a doctor to fix her and then fucks her again, taking her virginity a second time.
Chinese animation could easily have been on par with japanese animation and unique too
But then the Cultural Revolution happened
Before that you had gems like this
and pic related(Havoc in Heaven)
>maggot cheese is a delicacy in Europe
>Why is chinese anime (donghwa) so unpopular on /a/?
/a/ is American and all Americans have this weird kind of racism - worshipping black people as gods while hating yellow people.
But then again, "ignorance" is basically America's 2nd name. Remember when the CIA/FBI couldn't find North Korea on a map? They're like that.
The American stupidity is a fountain of never-ending amusement to us. It's basically a country of white lefties, black sports and Jews.
Stop pretending to be retarded, japanese cloned chinese culture all the time until Perry came. It's too long ago for you to remember but japan used to be known for ripping off and selling cheap products too
Anime literally ripped off of Disney and the same shitposters here would shitpost all day over Western animation.
Fucking hell. I should've been born an Euro.
Classical wapanese-ism is coming back into fashion. Get on board or forever be ironic weeb garbage. N2 minimum required
they don't burrow into the cheese. they just hang out on the outside softening it. so basically the maggots just get scooped off/shaken off. it's really delicious. though i guess for foreigners i'ts a bit weird. then again, you foreign faggots should stay in your own country.
Well this was about this place being american or japanese right? It wasn't about what it was.
Not that it matters though, I didn't make the original reply and was just making fun of the site's origin
I started reading Ravages of Time manga which is highly praised, but I just couldn't remember the names at all. While in Kingdom, the names are japanesed (Shin -> Xin, Sei -> Zheng) so it's easy to follow, but I have a really hard time to follow chinese names.
>At 3.8 million square miles (9.8 million km2) and with over 324 million people, the United States is the world's third- or fourth-largest country by total area,[fn 7]
See what I mean? Thanks for proving my point.
Nothing the gooks put out can compare to this masterpiece.
I wasn't making a point because this america/japan thing isn't my fight, but I'll throw you a bone and remind you that in the rules US law is still referenced rather than Japanese law because the servers are probably still in 'murica.
Did this get axed? Stopped getting updates as soon as it started getting interesting.
If you don't have an irrational hate for the chinese you could go the extra mile for some quality kino(In the Mood for Love, Hero etc.) besides korean isn't too hard on western ears imo.
It's not a matter of hate, the sound is annoying and I can't remember their names. Seriously.
I'm Italian, you don't even know how much Japanese is similar to Italian, so I find it nice and easy. Plus, it's not like Japan, Korea and China are the same thing. I like Japanese comics and animation because I like Japan. I am not able to be interested in Chinese and Korean stuff.
Chinese animation has had stunted growth but there's a lot of talent working on it now so soon ot will become something really worthwhile, but their movies are great already so you're missing out abot but to each their own
Pronunciationwise Japanese is very close to romance languages like Portuguese or Italian for example.
Yeah so you can have a 900€ MONTHLY salary and pay 50% more for everything than murrikans because we need to pay for refugee houses better than the one a guy can afford after 40 years working
Rest of Asia's comics and animation should be /co/'s territorry, why don't you try discussing those there OP? It would be better than the hundreds if threads about Marvel diversity or capeshitwars
As an Italian (and I am REALLY Italian), I can tell you that Japanese and Italian pronunciation are really similar. Idem for Spanish and Portoguese. I don't know about Flemish.
Really hope people move past the shitposting and actually give this shit a read, it's quite amazing.
Nothing Chinese has stood out to me. Last Chinese thing I watched was a knockoff of Kamen Rider with poor production values aka Armor Heroes. I dunno, what does China have that isn't Three Kingdoms told a hundred times over?
>Chinese have big economy than everyone. Super power today rulers of the world tomorrow.
I disagree someway, I mean. Japan was never the first superpower. America is the superpower. But Japan was able to produce some stuff (games, comics, animation) that we liked so much, also better than America stuff (I'm speaking about here in Italy).
>twf western anime (cartoons) will enver be allowed on /a/ like it was on /u/
first step towards saving the board bros
you need to let the cancer in so you can fuse with it to make something better
I'll be honest, I've never read it. But I feel like if I do I'll be done with China's media forever that isn't the occasional kung fu movie or chinese blockbuster. Certainly not their comics or animation.
>ripoff your product
copyright doesn't exist so you can go fuck yourself. that's some kike invention to seek rent. chinese are smart so obviously they aren't going to get screwed over by imaginary rules like copyright you fucking loser.
>did you not purchase copyright the wheel? sorry! can't make those :^)
>i copyrighted air so pay me a fee for breathing!
it's even better cause everybody knows you don't buy anything and just leech off torrents but talking about copyrights. so pathetic. your whole world is demented and wrong. china is the richest culture out of the 3 and is the smartest. them having flaws doesn't mean anything since nobody is perfect
Salve fratello...i cinesi non ci credono che il giapponese è facile a livello di pronuncia per noi italiani, ma è vero! Io neanche volendo riesco a pronunciare il cinese...penso ci voglia davvero tanto studio anche solo per la pronuncia.
It copies Japanese animation to the point where it doesn't have enough unique merits on it's own to be interesting to me as someone who isn't Chinese. And this is just for the shows that don't explicitly steal designs.
China clearly does Isekai better than Japan
>guy wakes up in a new world
>finds he has an incredibly attached yandere titty monster for a mother
>mother gets into a bath with him, grabs his dick whilst 'washing' him
>turns out his 'other' mother wants to see him
>this mother is a tsundere
How does it feel knowing that you'll never find yourself having two hot, extremely overly attached mothers?
Chinese and gooks are notorious phoneposters.
Phoneposters bring in the most ad revenue.
Hiro just wants to milk this site for as long as possible before he sells it off to gawker or some shit.
That's why mods won't do shit to offtopic shit like this.
>chinese and korean are just weeaboo
This faggot making Japan is inferior to China thread every on novelupdates too
>chinese and korean are just weeaboo
Something wrong with it?
>chinese love live fanatic
>corean [email protected] fanatic
Yeah i guess they just want to ripoff Japan anime manga and never try to read those crap eh?
Real talk, this was way better than it had any business being and way better than any MMO anime Japan has ever put out bar maybe Log Horizon.
It's a tragedy that we'll never be able to have threads about this because I'm 100% certain if it were a Japanese work and nothing else changed, it would've been /a/'s AOTS.
I don't understand why China doesn't make their own animation style. They have such a rich history that it feels weird they'd need to copy anime style.
Korean dogs on the other hand I understand can't do anything but copy glorious Nippon.
Well, you can still try to be original, both you and the Koreans. Stop copying Japanese style, this is the first step. Here in Italy we have many young artists who love manga so much, so they draw in manga style.
But we have also our unique school, and it's the most important one in the Country.
Well go to watch Chinese cartoons. But don't force them on other people. I think what made Japanese stuff special is the fact they never forced anime and manga on us Westerns. Their productions have always been mainly for the domestic market. Only recently they made the Cool Japan thing, but also with that, they don't really care so much about the international market (plus, Cool Japan was an expression created by Douglas McGray, Japanese hadn't even noticed that their stuff was really popular around the world).
There is a 3D CG adaptation. I can't even find seeded torrents for it, let alone subs, but there are some clips on jewtube.
But here in Italy since the late 70s not only those shows were
popular, but also strictly Japanese things like Mazinga, shojo stuff like Candy Candy, etc.
See, if you guy just stop reply to those thread they will go away because none care about chink or gook stuff but no. OP just want to start those threads for the purpose of shitposting.
>Anime literally ripped off of Disney
But that's not true at all. Ghibli is the only thing that comes close to Disney and is regarded as something only little children watch so has no place on /a/
>i'm better than you
>I'm intelligence than you
>i'm higher than you
>you're actually lower than me
>heh i smug and make a pose
>end and repeat for infinite
If you IQ is lower than 80, sure.
So, basically, there's a Chinese invasion on /a/, and these Chinese guys are trying to brainwash us Westerns to watch Chinese cartoons rather than Japanese cartoons. Interesting.
Sorry guys, but soft power doesn't work this way. They are acting like the Koreans and their kpop shit.
Apparently we can discuss MOBAGE on /a/ now because it has a anime style trailer for advertising
What can you say about the state of /a/?
I think the future when we can discuss literally everything on /a/ is not very far away anymore
I don't think that is the point. This board is dedicated to Japanese comics and animation.
Anyway, this is the new Hollywood, I guess?
>This board is dedicated to Japanese comics and animation
This is a very nationalist Chinese man who keep making threads Chinese thread on /a/ to prove his love for the communist empire of glorious China. Everyone please say hi to him
I feel sick to think that anime and manga is more popular from Japan. Girls of Japan are disgusting pig. So 2D girls should be based on girls of China who are maiden and wonderful.
>I don't think that post matters
Well you're not a mod so why should I listen to you?
> *walk in to the room* hey guys what's going on *see @Anonymous012456 and @RizYun giving me the death stare*
Well time to fight back with my ultimate super ninja superman invisible dragon yakuza holy death stare
What the fuck am i reading?
>I feel sick to think that anime and manga is more popular from Japan
Dude anime and manga should be chinesies original too dude, i mean their girl are literally not from this earth and anime & manga are absolutely wonderful. Just look at this heavenly girl dude.
You are not a real Dongwank enthusiast if you didn't read this masterpiece my man
>Only anime of China is good
And VIDEO GAME
>Not reading superior chinese manhua
Whore care anime and manga are international, learn to be diversity you fucking Siscum
>this thread is going to reach bump limit
Kill yourselves mods.
Can anyone find this thread? I think it's also from the Korean spammer. His English was horrible. And the thing he made me read even worse.
QUALITY thread with QUALITY posts, can't believe they are actually bother to deletes every posts shit talk about china in this thread lol. I guess we should prepare for the future of Chin/a/.
most of their chinky webnovel aren't censored by Chinese gov though
The big head banned isekai/time travel for some fucking reason (probably afraid of some kid trys to write a scenario where red commie lost or expose their ass over Mao's glorious ruling period)
But that doesn't stop your average Chink shit out their bootleg isekai
Whats the best Manhwa and why is it Brawling Go?
I mean chinese gov haven't touched the webnovel scene that much, may be they simply didn't give a fuck
but yeah, with movies and animated, mostly fund by the gov, of course gotta suck their dick hard
Wait this is from 4chan(dotters)com THIS is from 4chan.org you trickster
gook thinks it's a ingenious way to differentiate their comic from your average manga, by adding more white space
also it's because the Korean print comic got absolutely destroyed by manga so they turn to webcomic and it's easier to scroll down with a mouse that way
China usually doesn't give a fuck about what you do unless you organize around a cause they don't like, then the government cracks down but without that they'll turn a blind eye
nah this's what "realistic" chinese comic looks like though
pretty much all the big shot have the same styles
while the smaller one are manga wannabe drawn by weebs
And this too
>literally chinkchong mobile game
What the fuck is wrong with mods today. Fucking gross, i remember they're still deleted those chink/gook spams thread yesterday
>chink can't even finish their Mobage PV
I swear fucking Chink doesn't leave their safe zone behind the Great Firewall, they created enough contents for their own people to jerk off
It's like a quarantine network so I don't want one billion chink leaking all over the internet world wide, must be one hell of a scene to witness
Imagine what happened if the diehard nationalists fag find out /pol/, remember that chink had their own dank meme too.
they had different setting, scifi, fantasy, urban, you name it,
but yeah it all turned out to be kungfu shit about shouting move with fancy names to the core.
Recently their stories were infected with fucking game systems, or everything have to be gamy in some way. I say they actually perfected that shit before the nip. It's a fucking disaster.
The main problem is most Chinese anime is cheap as almighty fuck that suffers hardcore involving highly animated scenes, also the stupid fucks keep liking bad 3d CGI bullshit that looks like it came out of the early 2000's.
Is this getting a second season? It's the only "gamer" themed anime I've ever enjoyed. It's way, way better than Gamers! or SAO. And it "gets" gamer culture and expresses it much better than tripe like Big Fag Theory ever could.
>sit on computer all days
>people cried when he retired something
>muh APM superhuman
>lvl 1 solo max lvl 50 mans raid with muh APM
Little did you know that Japan was bootlegging china for most of history
They have the creativity otherwise they couldn't have created one of the indisputably greatest civilizations in the world
Cultural influence isn't the same of total plagiarism. Are hiragana and katakana the same as the original Chinese letters? No. So, try to change the style of animation at least a bit. Damn.
some biggest website with chink trying really hard to write their own "light novel" (it's called light novel for real), shows you how much they're stundere for the nips
don's ask me why I know
Let me tell you a story about Chinese talent
>go to EVO with friends
>for some reason the Chinese company open a both to advertising their game at a fighting tournament (?)
>it is a original high quality hard as fuck game and we proud of it etc
>it just a straight ripoff of Dark Soul from the graphics to animations to sounds to character designs even the game over screen
>play like the biggest of shit i 've ever had
>fucking trash to the core
>ask them where is the original you are talking about
>they said all those DS assets are just temporary placeholder and they will upgrade it
>literally saying "we will just ripoff your product for now"
Nice talent, totally ripoff, From software in suicide watch
You can't ignore that personal preferences do exist. I hear often Chinese people speaking (my city is full of Chinese migrants) and I don't like the language anyway.
Not that anon tho.
Japanese writing literally was ripped off from china originally but it didn't fit with their language so after quite a while they adopted a new writing system, same happened in korea
Classical chinese writing is hieroglyph tier though, it's one of those special writing systems that can be read by anyone regardless of language if they learn it. Seriously.
I just rebuked with saying yes, the japanese DID literally rip off the chinese pretty much exactly as how they found the chinese stuff. Their capital was a clone of Chang'an for crying out loud.
I'm sure the animators will find their style eventually
you tell me
it was click count, but Google mistranslated the word, it's not "million" since it only have 4 zeros aka 10000 each
Actually I'm posting from China right now. 4chan isn't blocked by the Great Firewall for some reason.
Neither is sadpanda.So much for censorship based on "morals and decency".
Yeah the reason why chinese have difficulty posting here is because google pulled out of china, so they can't get captcha forcing chinese to buy a 4chan pass
Not sure if google is back though
Again, Japan was influenced by China, but it was cultural influence, not a copycat situation. I wonder when your "great talents" will find their own style. Here in Italy, our talents are way fast to change, also when they start with a manga style.
For example, this young artist started this way
her main influence was Masakazu Katsura.
But now this is her style
That explains it. I have a pass from a year or so back.
By the way I'm visiting a Chinese city on the border of Russia as part of a week-long work assignment. It's all commie blocks and underground assembly areas because it gets cold as fuck in the winter. The infrastructure is all sorts of fucked, you have mud pits in the middle of the city and traffic is literally a free for all with no rules. Then you suddenly encountered singular blocks of gentrified areas that are more beautiful than anything within miles around.
Rather than a city-wide filtration system individual each apartment has its own water cleaning unit. Water is also heated with a unit that is hooked up to only one faucet in the house (the bathroom). Air conditioning is provided by a card you load up and swipe for hours of cool air at a time. In the winter they burn coal, which is a good thing I'm here in the summer because I have bad asthma. There is a constant smell in the streets that I can't put my finger on, it's like rusted metal mixed with food oil. The outlets here are also 250V so I can't charge my fucking 3DS.
It's been pure suffering here anywhere that's not the office. I can't wait to get back home and smoke some weed, god damn.
The food, however, is fucking delicious and dirt cheap. I'm pretty sure the meat is just cancerous tumors stir fried up with lead-based paints to make it look a good color, but at least it tastes bomb.
oh hey seem like this site have some orignial contents
And this is one of her first work. You can see how heavy was Katsura's influence.
But now she draws like this
This is the Sino-North Korean Border.
But something is not right.
Japanese as a language sounds cool and is appealing to listen too. It also goes well with subtitles.
Some languages don't go well with subtitles.
Some languages sound like shit.
Also most people haven't listened to chinese or another language long enough to get used to it.
nice finally it's "readable"
you sure man?
oh yeah, it's common business practice for Chinese webnovel to gain profit
they let you read some chapters for free, usually the first book. You want more goy? buy the VIP account
And I'm Saying that there was literal copying because it is true, doesn't mean that the majority of cultural exchange happened that way but it was not to be underestimated how often it happened. Japan is a sponge country.
What's with westeners and their fixation on ugly noses and general ugliness?
Chinese and Korean style looks quite close to Japanese simply because both are asians and hold the same beauty standards.
And Manhua is not considered "art-house" in China or Korea to warrant SJW-looking ugliness for the sake of art or reflecting reality. It is seen as an increasingly legitimate medium for mainstream stories.
And also, Asians tend not to be politically correct. If someone looks ugly, they tell him in the face and they also have no qualms about portraying it in their media exclusively. Hence, anime style, which is the epitome of contemporary asian beauty standards.
It was never a literal copying, since they changed also the writing system. Again, when will you change your comic art style? I showed you how fast a young Italian artist changed her style, from manga to something really personal and more western.
Looking forward to the shitstorm on /a/.
tepid and institutionalized
surely some good has happened in spite of this but i don't feel compelled to dig at all
For some reason I only got manga that I follow or like. Anything else feels off for some reason. And not many have compelling stories, almost all of them are either hardcore self inserts or is about heavy social problems I really don't give a fuck about.
