Eehhh. Does Japan even have Political Anime/Manga? I feel like their government would prevent anything that talks badly of their country and government.

>>78291093

The only two explicitly political manga I can think of are Ikigami and Assassination Classroom.

Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service had an arc about how much Japan is being an idiot about teaching World War II, but it's not a main plot issue.

I mean, what? Gintama is a self-aware shonen parody. ATHF is weed t00nz and yes with zeroes and a zee fuck you.

>>78291093
All I could think of that's comparable to South Park is Sayonara Zetsubō Sensei.
>>
>>78291093

Closest I can think of would be Shinometa, which was entirely about Japan's super excessive censorship and obscenity laws.

The most meta part of the show was that in the setting, curse words are illegal, and they were always bleeped. Nudity and porn are illegal, and all of it was censored to hell.

The best part was when they acknowledged that it was illegal to show a functioning sextoy on the show, then showed instructions for making one out of cornstarch, then said "oh, but this is just food, not a sextoy."
>>
>>78291146
What's Japan doing about World War II? "We didn't do nuthin."?

I've noticed a lot of mangaka these days are into that "lets remilitarize!" kick.
>>
>>78290715
NGE wasn't really fun and games at the beginning. It was a take on shonen anime where the characters are actually have issues and not just a beacon of justice and friendship. While Morel Orel was satire mocking of Christians.

Morel Orel also didn't have that much of a fucked up ending. It was more depressing but overall bittersweet. NGEs wasn't fulfilling at all and was more of a final "Fuck you" to the audience from Anno. At least Morel Orel tried to please their audience. Especially with the bonus final episode with Doughy.

If anything, I'd say Morel Orel is more like PunPun, with the upbeat start and depressing but bittersweet end thing. But even then it's not a perfect comparison.

Yeah, because Batman was the first guy to drive a black car.

>>78294793
Toonami even used the "hero's still wear black" line when talking about Big O in one of the promo's, directly referencing Batman.

I really don't get two things about manga.
Why so many tournaments?
and Why so much Mah Jong?
>>
>>78294043
Both teams have equal amount of people,and they all fight weird aliens. (i.e the weird thing Kamina and Simon fight in the episode they first discover Gurren,or the pilot episode of Megas where they fight the Glorft)
Also,both stories for the shows are quite the same,and the fact that while Yoko,Simon and Kamina found Gurren buried under ground,Coop found Megas in a junkyard,sans the head quite proves that.
(who needs a head when you got a '70 Plymouth Barracuda anyways?)
>>
>>
>>78295285
Tournaments are frequent because kids like tournaments (you get to see all those old characters again!), and it's also easy for the artist, since you don't need to come up with much story for like the two, three years a tournament arc lasts.

I'm gonna stop you right there. EoTV was what depressed people want to hear, that all of their emotional problems will be solved in one big magical moment where all their friends and acquaintances gather around them to say "you're a good man, Charlie Brown." That was a load of bullshit.

The End of Evangelion was what people suffering from depression needed to hear. It was raw, it was painful, but it was the truth. And if you don't see that, you either don't live with depression or are unwilling to see the world as it is.

Seriously, though.. humanity being "destroyed" is the point. Shinji decides he'll go on living, come what may.. and then is immediately thrust into the harshest situation of his young life. He's all alone with someone who now utterly despises him. That's the fucking point.
