What changed to kill the Japanese delinquent trend? Will it ever come back?

What changed to kill the Japanese delinquent trend?
Nips developed better taste, it's the age of meek beta MCs now.
It's the same reason you don't see many greasers in American movies anymore.
edgy disaffected kids in japan don't go outside anymore
The government used psy-ops to make the elevens hate protesting and rebels. It was very effective.
So what did teenage japanese delinquents do? The same things their older counterparts but with lower stakes?
cant have this much alpha in the cast
Squat in front of FamilyMart and read Jump.
It'll come back after another war.
So post-apocalyptic delinquents.
they all became influential gamers, game designers, or members of the band kishidan
BAP DOO WAP BEE BAP DOO WAP
Not watching the delinquent anime from this season
Beat the shit out of people for fun.
They turned Hanakana.
Japanese teenage delinquents? That's redundant, Japanese delinquents are have to be teenagers, no such thing as old Japanese delinquents. Be more specific with what age your thinking about but yes your reasoning is obviously right.
no such thing as old Japanese delinquents
The Yakuza are old men.
I miss hanakana.
preparing themselves for their future yakuza life
This is gonna be so good.
Part 4 is the best we've got right now
They watched that documentary of kids in Chicago on CNN and realised that all their fighting was completely stupid.
better education maybe?
The Yakuza are old men.
Yakuza are Yakuza, not petty delinquents.
it never left
It's probably just a cultural trend, for the same reasons we don't really see classic bullies today like we did in the 80s.
Weirdly enough I'd say 21 Jump Street is the most accurate representation of American high school today.
Better animation maybe?
Those all girl gangs back then sounded vicious as fuck. Nowadays it's just another fetish. Still, fucking people up with Yo-yos sounds both stupid and hardcore. Anybody can swing a bat or a pipe, these bitches beat people down with Yo-Yos. YO-YOs.
Got a source on that or any more info? Never heard of yo-yo beatings. They used some tricky weapons but yo-yos?
They're called the Sukeban, the yo-yo thing is kind of exaggerated, but yes "some" may have used yo-yo's
So it's all bullshit then...
Is Crows still a thing outside of the live action films?
tfw superior edgy groups are gone and now we just have a bunch of ghetto memers
I don't even care if I'm Le wrong generation todays bad boys suck
How was Crows compared to Worst anyways?
The new is strong with this one.
All hail the Saki.
Not quite. The manga for the second movie is still coming out and that's about it.
Most would say Crows is better but I'm under the impression most that say that haven't fully read Worst. Some say Worst really is better and I'm under the assumption whichever you read first you'll prefer. I couldn't put up with Worst myself. I think Crows has better art so it has that going on for itself.
Give me the source on real yo-yo weapons and then you can call me new.
That's hilarious, despite how similar they all look, tiny characteristics really make the titles fit. Goddam Ouji-kun.
real yo-yo weapons
Silly user, there's no such thing. Saki is the only yoyo-tsukai.
Yurei-sukebans need to be more of a thing.
The old mentor being offscreen too.
i hope she and tomoko
It was the radiation
This generation lacks identity. There are no more gangs or groups. Nothing like the old Skinheads, Greasers, Preppies. There is nothing to be apart of except for shitty fandoms.
All we are left with is a bunch of betas who struggle to find indentity. We end up creating fake labels like "Chads" and "Normies" that aren't even real gangs. Just look at all the trouble we have with defining this shit.
We should create new subculture. Give it a name. Give it an identity. This culture will have its own fashion (that isn't fedora's and trench coats).
I've seen Clannad and have no memory of this happening.
What is the context here?
/pol/ culture has already been nicknamed the alt-right and has been spreading like wildfire in the mainstream lately
They're all rail thin twinks
Oh baby I'm begging you, bring them back, I want to see them try to act tough before Trone and Chad the American Marines reduce them to pulp.
Is this seriously what a Japanese """"""""""""delinquent"""""""""""" looks like? You guys used to behead people by the thousands, and now this is your concept of a teenage thug? What the fuck happened? We need to make Japan great again.
Holy shit, could you be more obnoxious?
If anything being defined by a "subculture" is a major sign of lack of own identity
are there any manga like this?
Doesn't Hokuto no Ken fill the description pretty well?
Where's the banchou?
It's Clannad After Story, when Tomoya confronts the other leader's band trying to help Yukine Miyazawa
Japanese people. Why aren't they normal ?
Isn't there a manga with delinquents ending up in some medieval setting and fighting dragons and shit?
Hit the gym senpai, and don't skip leg day.
Fighting another banchou cat by the riverside or an empty lot during a sunset
Is that one guy in the upper right giving a thumbs-up with his eyes closed?
nah that's just fighting shonen.
I wanna know about this.
Karen fucking Kujo
eyes closed ?
No, that nigga dead for acting up
get cancer and stop coming here, underage
There is a real argument that this is not just a japanese thing... it's across all modern countries.
The latest couple generations are the first to have grown up under the absolute microscope of omnipresent, targeted marketing. Counter-culture like delinquents or hippies rise and latch on to things that aren't "mainstream", so what do you think happens when the mainstream marketers notice the trends and slam multi-million dollar media campaigns down the throats of teens as soon as a trend starts emerging? It stops being a counter-culture trend and becomes mainstream. Just look at the whole "goth" thing of the 90's. Even worse, if it is something that is threatening to established institutions it gets identified and smashed early, like the occupy movements of the 00's.
Basically, the rise of big data and targeted analytical models within both government and commercial sectors has aborted almost all the counter-culture movements of both the millennial generation and "generation z".
I say almost, because the one notable exception is drug culture. It survives due to a two-fold advantage: One, it's illegal; this means that that the commercial advertising sectors can only market AROUND it, like the commercialization and sterilization of rap. or the low rider car culture. They keep hitting the movements that pop up around the drug culture, but obviously can't hit the heart of the hydra because they are constrained by laws. The government, on the other hand, has been trying VERY hard to smash drug culture for a while, but they are fighting against perhaps one of the few things that they can't beat yet: raw pleasure and validation. Drugs are SO GOOD, and make so much money, that people actually stop caring if they get fucked by the government for associating with drug culture. The result of this paradox is the US drug war.
In short, no, the delinquent trend will never come back. It would be smothered by mainstream marketing instantly.
what about vaporwave?
What are some good delinquent anime/mango?
I've tried reading Angel Densetsu and was enjoying it but kind forgot about it at some point.
tfw wear a leather jacket, white t-shirts, and jeans, smoke, and have greasy hair
it's just a good fucking feel
That entire generation grew up and turned into shitters. Most of them have dead ends jobs and all of them are unable to parade around their alpha now. Society crushed that out of them.
So weak pure-hearted dense beta MC are the new in thing. When that fails with this generation, you can hope for something else.
how's that first year of college going?
The truth is that the bursting of the economic bubble in the late 80s brought many cultural changes. Fewer yankii and more moe.
No more bitter world war veteran, grandpas to fill the head of young ones with angst and hate.
Stay mad, twink
increase in the price of hairspray
As the situation in japan worsens and they slowly slink off the global stage the bancho and deliquents will rise again.
you can hope for something else.
If only I were still in college. Ah, good times.
The economic bust of the 80's certainly brought about many changes. A need for security and a future amidst a failing job market could be cited as a reason, however, just as often you can find social trends with increased delinquency and social unrest after severe market downturns.
Just look at the American housing collapse. It effectively tanked both housing values and retirement portfolios, but the lure of drug counter-culture is as strong as ever, maybe even moreso, and as previously cited there was more than a little unrest in the middle class.
In fact, you could look at the part-timer culture of the lost generation and onwards as a counter-culture movement, but even that has been subject to more and more aggressive marketing and governmental strategies in the past decade.
The manga Delinquent Scans do. Bakuon Rettou is fantastic.
The strongest gang in the Kanto region is the Satans, by far, who have taken all the other gangs in the region under their command. The reason for their dominance is none other than their leader Yamaguchi Nitaka who is bar none the strongest fighter. With Nitaka taking charge, they begin their campaign on the Kansai region and all is going well until a flash of light takes Nitaka and his friend Mizuno Tsukasa to another world.
When the pair come to, they are greeted by a princess who tells them that they are in a world called Olicia. In this land, magic, demons and mythical creatures are not just fantasy or a videogame but absolutely real. The princess’s kingdom has been under siege by the Demon Empire and as a last resort, she attempted to summon Satan himself to defend her people. Although she mistakenly brought Nitaka over instead of the lord of the underworld, Nitaka’s strength knows no bounds and fights equally as well against dragons and wizards.
Nice come back, guzzler
Stay gold faggot
is any good? it sounds right up my alley.
Here's a hint - fiction and reality are different. It's not cool when actual people do it, just obnoxious.
Art's good, from the look of things, the Olician people who summon them pretty much have a bunch of knights who are basically going "We can't fight these dragons and demons, they're too strong." then the delinquents show up and wreck them without army and crap and the knights essentially end up getting cucked.
Lots of loli fanservice too if you're into that.
Lots of loli fanservice too if you're into that.
not really, but if the fights are cool I can ignore it.
I hope everyone ITT has read this.
What do you mean?
There's still gangs just that they deal with drugs and crime, I mean, if you start a gang you should be prepare to confront other criminals. Don't be surprised if your gang end up chop in pieces by a drug cartel or something.
Drugs and the war on drugs killed this kind of gangs that mostly did vandalism.
I started with worst and I much prefer Crows. Better main character, better cast, slightly less over the top and overdone.
And yeah, Worst had a mild decline of art/character design.
how fucking high are their ceilings that they can comfortably hold a giant like that
His dad has bigger problems than ceilings
I fucking love Kongou Banchou.
I'd need a translator.
I'd read it raw if I had to. It looks great.
I can upload raws for the volume I have when I get home.
Don't do that. Don't give them any kind of reverence.
The yakuza are nothing more than adult delinquents. Petty thugs.
There's nothing romantic or master mind'ish about it. It's just punks who do things like say "give us money or we'll smash your windows"
That'd be great, if I like it I might be up for translating it if I can find a typesetter. I've been looking for a translation project to do when I'm free over the summer.
Well I can typeset and clean so I'd be down if you are.
More like worse taste.
It's like another user said:
"Anime is for faggots and pedophiles only now"
Yakuza is mostly organized crime. There are members that will weasel their way into companies and businesses, then make absurd demands once they get dirt on some high ranking official.
Also, some groups have magazines and let everyone know what they're up to. It's really bizarre.
tfw no sukeban gf
There's still biker gangs in japan.
Thank you based user.
Shounen Jump is now looking for a delinquent manga, so maybe it'll be revived soon.
implying Nisekoi won't just turn into a delinquent manga
It'll be Rosario + Vampire all over again!
hey, other greaser here. fuck you it's comfy and makes me feel cool
Alright, the raws are low quality, but I can definitely get my hands on better quality ones. Lemme know what you think user.
Lets start a gang anons ;')
I guess this would be a pretty simple translation job I could do it if I get bored, but unfortunately I got less and less interested as it went on, really. I'll probably pass on this since there's a few eromanga and such I've got lined up.
Looks pretty much like the Junior High I'm teaching at.
People lost interest.
Happens, all the time.
Something "rebellious" will come back at one point, whatever shape it will have.
the internet gave kids other outlets for their boredom besides beating the shit out of each other and starting fights over nothing
now the kids that would be delinquents just shitpost on 2ch instead
It makes perfect sense to use a yo-yo though, it's an inconspicuous flail.
Nobody can without evidence accuse you of possessing a possibly weaponized implement if it's just a children's toy.
It's not like a monkey's fist or a rock in a sock just ready to go.
Literally me second from the left, in the front
You mean /r9k/ the board that complains about something they all want to be
Are these guys unaware of how absolutely ridiculous they look?
Can anyone else get on the Saizen website? I can't.
Even America looks down on bikers now.
what changed? j-pop happened and the west found out about lolis
Yakuza is organized, truly organized, in some areas they are even more organized than police.
Also most of Yakuza influenced towns are safer than normal towns there.
Are "scene kids" still a thing?
Yo-yos were originally invented to be hunting weapons to knock animals out during a chase.
Do you want them to be?
Are there any photo books about japanese delinquents? I mean, i would like to know how they actually looked. I mean, most what people post is always manga
I wasn't expect this many feels from something written by Takahashi.
No. It was essentially a thing of the 00's.
What's this from? I don't remember it in crows or worst.
They do kind of look like that desu.
At least the old ones did.
Kiku, one volume thing he released in the early 90s. Very well written, probably my favourite thing by him, short and powerful.
Holy shit this made me cry
The track team captain is cute!
I did see vice documentary where right wing political groups basically have to get their approval to protests or anything there.
Found the pinoy
Sorry, I'm Canadian. Just saying that's what they were supposedly invented for.
I can barely get a yo-yo to spring back, I wouldn't know how to use it to club people or animals.
Who is the best Yankii manga protagonist and why is it Harumichi Bouya? Better than Onizuka, Taison, Mitsuhashi, Toru and Hiroshi. No one embodies exactly what it means to be a delinquent as much as he does.
So we were born just in time to experience the dystopian cyberpunk nightmare, but instead of getting to be in this group of hotheads sticking it up to the evil megacorporations, we're just another target audience.
Thanks! That's been in my backlog, as Hirose's works are a guilty pleasure for me. I love yankii manga, I wish it got translated faster.
There's a photo book of Bosozoku, I've got a copy of it. It's really good, however it isn't a very common book, no idea if delinquents have any similar type of book.
Who /hastheirownsukajan/ here?
I'm already part of le otaku subculture. xDDD
It seems a bit too impractical for many people to use.
Has anyone read Clover? It gets sorta repetitive in the later chapters of the ones that are translated, but it's pretty damn good
Nah, he's a westaboo. Shows in his games.
There it is. Hanakana's non-cutesy voice. Always a delight to hear.
Where's my delinquent girls high school anime?
There's an OVA for Hana No Asuka Gumi. No idea if it's any good.
I really liked Clover, the artwork and story really pick up quite a bit into it and it's really entertaining.
They aren't allowed to have swords anymore.
There's also a Sukeban Deka OVA.
Yeah, but Sukeban Deka is weird.
I'm remember when Beelzebub, crows, battle royal was something
They are still around just in another form.
Nowdays they settle differences and territory fights using children card games, gunpla and toys like yo-yos
that thing is literally a dildo
Yakuza > delinquent
Jingi Naki anime never
How much Yakuza anime even is there? There isn't much, including raws.
I'm a 4channer!!
Anyone have a link to a torrent of Shakotan Boogie? Someone posted screenshots in a thread a while back and I haven't been able to find the source.
Ironically, being on an anime fan and posting on a/ means that you are part of a subculture.
That's actually not that farfetched. Some people probably do identify as that.
This site isn't by far out of marginal yet but it's definitely becoming more known.
This is true. If drugs ever become legal then it's basically, over.
I don't identify with the Sup Forums of today
I felt some kinship with the Sup Forums of 2007 to 2011
but Sup Forums changed , I just go here cause there is no where else I can discuss airing anime .
This site isn't by far out of marginal yet but it's definitely becoming more mainstream.
I liked delinquent manga because I could relate to it back in school. I guess relating to media makes you like it more.
Sup Forums didn't change, you did.
even r9k is becoming mainstreamish
I mean for as pathetic as they were I at least respected old r9k for its staunch uncompromising misogyny
now their mascots have been repackaged into a lovable and inoffensive form.
Yes that's what I said.
The most active boards have their own cultures, it's understandable to identify with them. They feel like communities because they kind of are.
I well may have talked to either of you several times before.
bosozoku are usually in their mid 20s
nope Sup Forums changed
things that were tolerated back then then arn't tolerated now and things that were not tolerated back then are tolerated now.
The most active boards have their own cultures,
the way generals have taken over its now like each thread chain has its own culture
What was the turning point?
That weird shitstorm of bot-spammers?
Perhaps that, or it was just a gradual change.
As someone interested in the niche that is straight faced delinquent manga, I take from this thread that Crows, Worst and Clover are good places to start, no?
a series of gradual and sudden changes
if you want a recent example of a sudden change, the monstergirl thread being exiled to /jp/ , sure it wasn't Sup Forums related to the letter but those threads were around since I first came here with people seemingly not having a problem with them, and well for some reason people don't want them around anymore.
The guys in that photo look threatening until you remember the biggest guy there is probably 5'7"
Bakuon Rettou, KKOW, Rokudenashi Blues as well.
There's Google not giving sauce, and then there's Google being a fuck.
you will never have a sukeban gf
I'm fucking glad it died.
It's the Japanese equivalent of Americans glorifying Negro violence and worshipping shitty Bikies and Leb gangs.
You don't celebrate thugs.
The complete pussification of males in advanced society around various parts of the globe. Now I see young men wearing skinny jeans and makeup, its disgusting. Even Hollywood has said its increasingly having to go overseas for actors because of a lack of rugged lead males coming out of America.
I am outraged by the fact how no one in this thread has yet brought Cromartie Highschool
What does 1684 Chapters on-going mean. I'm guessing it's not like average manga chapters right?
wasn't cromartie a parody of banchou manga?
Yeah, it's not that good.
gurren laggan was a parody of the mecha genre and its still considered a mecha and held in high regard
You really only know Yakuza through anime right? Yakuza are not some eccentric looking dudes walking on the streets looking mean and snatching money.
That whole video itself proves Bsozoku is dead dude, some honorific dude holding on to an old title doesn't make for a biker gang.
Akira starts off like that
Look up gaijin rider, they have a gallery with an old bosozoku picture book, it's not that great but cool nonetheless.
Glad this cancerous fad stopped. There is nothing cool being loser and their mums could not support them
Funny how yo mention Toru and Hiroshi but Itou is non existent in the KKOW duo.
, albeit I posted it more to share the laugh at Google's "guess" than anything else
One day I'll buy a sukajan even if it's the last thing I do before I die.
Yeah it really improves once it gets a little more broad and with more characters.
Nah, delinquents start out young, middle school, bosozoku aren't really the exception. I mean Japanese can get their license at age 17 to ride bikes but that doesn't mean they can't hang out before that. Really any delinquent in their mid 20s is likely ready to retire or moving onto other stuff like Yakuza business or other shady shit.
What do you mean straight faced? Crows, Clover and Worst are all EXTREMELY similar, I wouldn't read them back to back if I were you.
I feel some resentment there user, were you picked on at school when you were young?
you didnt even get to the rival gangs in the later volumes, dont talk about the cast
Beelzebub was only a delinquent manga for like 20 chapters.
It was still the shit
Cromartie is a parody of Otokojuku which is a parody of HnK.
Replying to ancient post but whatever. I've read both a couple of times and really liked both. Initially I preferred Worst because it was consistently good throughout the whole thing whereas in Crows once the story shifted to the 'new generation' I thought it became a little worse. However on a few re-read I whole heartedly prefer Crows, during it's first two thirds it has better cast, fights and I think better writing as well.
If you mean you want realistic delinquent manga then you absolutely must read Bakuon Rettou and Hot Road. I'd add on Blue Spring as well but that can get quite odd at times.
I don't know why people keep saying this, other than the title and it being about deliquents, Cromartie High and Otokojuku have nothing in common. Kongou Banchou is the real Otokjuku parody, with the massive characters and tournament arcs etc.
Cromartie is a parody of Otokojuku
What, how? A delinquent high school is not an Otokojuku concept or part of it's core.
The whole Sakigake!! In the title of both. Though Cromartie is a blanket parody of all delinquent series.
other than the title and it being about deliquents
Cromartie is not a parody of delinquents, it's just a gag manga with delinquent elements.
The same reason you don't see 'punks' wearing leather jackets with white shirts and riding motorcycles in American media anymore. It's a stupidly outdated trope.
I think you'll find it's a great trope actually.
Kimagure Orange Road
Itou is best deinquent. BEST.
The theme was 'School Uniform' so yeah theres a few normies here and there.
'Delinquent' became a Cute Girl type instead of a guy thing.
The Japanese do their very best to take a one-off character archtype, apply it to the design of a cute girl, then make their male MC as bland, beta, and boring as possible.
YES! This is what I want for an ideal anime
more like full of magical high school girls delinquents that will break the rules and take no shit for no one.
Where can I read Worst? I already read Crows and it's one of my favorites. I want to read Crows too but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
So many posts and nobody tells the /r9k/ forgposter to fuck off.
Sup Forums is dead.
Are you really that dense? The theme is obviously delinquents, just because there are a few betas as a joke doesn't take away from that fact.
Awesome, could you remove the faggot in the back with his eyes closed
Only dumb teenagers need subcultures, cliques and labels.
It's human nature to want to belong to a group, almost everyone does to different degrees.
I love this picture, who drew it?
no thats just human nature user
specifically gakuran uniform.
why did they not wear tracksuits?
Cutie. She was great at Angry Nadeko.
pretending Sup Forums & /r9k/ are different
How new are you? How old are you pretending to be?
I wish wish more American media inexplicably threw in Fonzie clones.
OF COURSE THEY ARE FUCKING DIFFERENT
r9k is just another /soc/ I dont know why you faggots are trying to force yourselves on us but it really isn't appreciated
I wonder how many went on to become salarymen.
Kamiya wasnt a delinquent.
I dont think he's a westaboo, he seems to like a bunch of different tings, he's not weeb tier. His twitter is full of callign foreign fans idiots becuase they keep asking him stupid questions. But he may be autistic as he will reply to everything.
tfw no hair
For clothes I would wear a trench coat because it's warm, keeps the wind out and keeps you dry. Unlike shitty regular coats where the water just gathers around your thihgs/hips where the coat ends and it just makes you wetter there.
Sadly trenchcoats are now associated with goths (which I am sure are now extinct) and fedorafags. So you cant really wear them anymore which sucks.
I like that Taison is at the front because he is the GOAT yankii MC.
The artist listed 学生服キャラ as the theme of the image. It just so happens that most of the best uniform-wearing characters are delinquents.
Dragon Garou, it's in the corner.
As if delinquents ever got laid.
Crows is much better than Worst. Teenagers who look and behave like teenagers (or as close as you get in the context) instead of fashionable 20-sometings who take "gotta rule da school" too seriously.
And give humanitarian aid in times of need
unless they speak chinese
You're one of those guys that every one talks shit about behind your back. I used to have a coworker like you, and like her, you will most likely die alone because of your ego-driven autism.
whoa where is this coming from?
Are there even any delinquent manga where the characters actually get laid?
D-did you respond to the wrong post?
Seconding. I've been looking for years.
I just came across a post in the Funimation forums from a guy who bought all 4 parts of the OVA and is looking to get them translated. Hopefully something comes of that.
Someone has the shop with the names of Cromartie characters?
Lots of antagonists seem to fuck dumb sluts.
nigga what he's the coolest looking one
the only mature culture is mainstream pop culture
Yu Yu Hakusho, although it isn't with best girl
What a bunch of faggots.
Bremen, MC shown to have fucked some girl on panel (sort of).
Everyone in Sakigake Otokojuku has had a kid in Akatsuki Otokojuku.
Bakuon Rettou, MC shown to have sex at age of 15.
There's a guy in Bebop High School who is always getting laid but he isn't one of the main characters.
I'm sure there's more.
Society has degraded to the point where having traditional values and national pride means your edgy
Because they are all copying Elvis Presley?
But well I agree he totally looked like some degenerate.
This photo is used as purported evidence of Nanking Massacre victims, but there was no such custom of gibbeted heads among the Japanese after the 1870s. Among the Chinese, however, this custom was still observed in the 1930s, and several photos of gibbeted heads appeared in cities of China in those days. Chinese Nationalists and Communists often killed pro-Japanese Chinese people and gibbeted their heads on streets as a warning.
First week of japanese occupation
More than 500.000 chinese defections to the Japanese
I assume Hiroshi from BBH has gotten laid, he's popular as a delinquent and a lady killer and BBH is not some generic shonen that puts up with cucking characters. When did Bremen MC get laid though?
actually living anything resembling muh traditional values
funny joke user
To the user that suggested this piece of shit, jesus man, pull it together. It's been a while since I read something this bad I'll tell you that. This has got to be one of the laziest, 'tropiest' and most archetypal manga I've read. And the art being shit doesn't help either. This is right there with Sugarless and other shit of that caliber.
guess i'm the only one who preferred worst over crows
That's not Brokuyasu
Japanese Delinquent hairstyle is fucking amazing.
It ain't easy, fellow user.
Man I fucking love delinquent manga but rape and sexual assault makes me severely uncomfortable in visual media that ain't just porn, and it makes it a fucking bitch sometimes to be such a big fan of the more 'serious' kinda delinquent stories.
Hiroshi actually struggles to get laid in BBH so far, latest scanlated chapter was about that. Toru is closer at getting it because he has that middle school girl after him but he keeps sperging out about it.
Romeo from Bremen turned out to have had fathered a child with the female singer in his former band, before he lost memories and shit. It was during the chapters where the plot became extra retarded.
You need to look on the bright side, all of this shit goes in cycles. These peoplewil lweaken society, then it will be rebuilt with conservative values and national pride. Those who ruined society will likely die in the process, because no country would see any use for self loathing, pathological altruists.
all of this shit goes in cycles
Since the Enlightenment era the West has been on a fairly steady path in terms of progressive values gaining popularity and leaning further and further to the left, minus the occasional bump like Nazi Germany or brief regional regressions like the Reign of Terror.
Even worse, if it is something that is threatening to established institutions it gets identified and smashed early, like the occupy movements of the 00's.
Yeah, I'm sure the big bankers and all the megabucks CEOs were quaking in their boots that a bunch of morons who were suckered into majoring in Gender Studies decided they'd forgo showers and looking for a real job to let the whole world know how unjust it was that they don't get paid $50,000 a year to extoll the evils of the patriarchy to larger society. If only those damn dirty 1%ers who are hoarding all the money from us unjustly (if you replace the term "1%ers" with Armenians/Koreans/Jews, does any of this sound familiar?) Occupy could have crushed the establishment and brought about the egalitarian utopia we've always dreamed of, right comrade?
Everyone in the western higher education system desperately wants to be the next boomer-style protest movement and they have even LESS to complain about. It's incredibly disgusting and somehow even more pathetic for the fact that the desire to fight the man comes first this time, and the issues are created second.
such a big fan of the more 'serious' kinda delinquent stories.
On one hand there aren't many, I seriously can't think of more than a handful. On the other hand most of the wacky action shonen will have the rape implications too, so you're basically fucked one way or the other.
That's why I said I assume so, it's not like we the readers get to "see" every single bit of their daily life if you get what I'm saying.
I forgot that dude's name was even Romeo, I didn't mind the retardedness at the end though.
Wow... that made me feel things. Felt the need to enjoy the end of my youth before it goes away forever
Vegetarian males and carnivorous females. Fucking sally the witch and sport clubs ended up creating girls that are far fiercer than the boy who stays on his room playing dragon quest II
To this day, pic related makes me overflow with rage, to the point where I wish it were real just so that I could take gruesome revenge on the sucker.
I know that feeling
Slavery only went away becuase of machinery being better.
A weak country is destined to become unsafe and violent, then a strong organized force pacifes it and it all starts over.
Just keep an eye on Sweden, this is going to be hilarious.
Now I just need to pray the UK leaves the EU or the Swedescum may come here, god knows we have enough retarded liberals already.
You're as edgy and childish as that Anime
Cromatie is a parody of Ryochi Ikegami's art style.
Ikegami infuluenced many manga like HnK, Otokojuku, and even Jojo.
This is just sad, man. I'm cool with the gangs but it's really pathetic watching this dude talk about all the awesome shit he did back in the day when he's barely even a construction worker now.
Yeah you're right, I think it did say in one chapter of BBH that Toru or Hiroshi hadn't get any for a while, so they must have managed to get a girl previously at some point.
The story shift at the end of Bremen surprisingly did a good job of explaining why Romeo was the way he was, it was just a bit too sudden, could have done with more build up.
Daily reminder that we will never get any Ikegami delinquent manga scanlated, feels bad man, I love his artwork
I vote for us to bring back nazi fashion
they knew how to dress
they knew how to dress
Just not for success.
There is a difference between being conservative and being a Serbian
A Serbian Filming was all I needed to know about the place.
yeah fuck off robot
Japan lost the war to the Americans. Since that time, the education we received is not one that creates adults. Even for us, people in their 40s, and for the generation older than me, in their 50s and 60s, there’s no reasonable model of what an adult should be like.
I don’t see any adults here in Japan. The fact that you see salarymen reading manga and pornography on the trains and being unafraid, unashamed or anything, is something you wouldn’t have seen 30 years ago, with people who grew up under a different system of government. They would have been far too embarrassed to open a book of cartoons or dirty pictures on a train. But that’s what we have now in Japan. We are a country of children.
You should be able to guess who said it in a single attempt.
being afraid of liking what you like in public is somehow childish
I mean, I'd certainly be afraid of opening up a book of all the weird shit I enjoy in public, and would rather talk about it on the 'net or enjoy it myself where you have maximum enjoyment potential, but is it really that huge of a deal? True adults can appreciate the fact nobody gives two fucks about your interests unless they themselves are into said interests. Besides, the Japs seem REALLY good at ignoring other people.
Adults are someone who can bind themselves instead of expecting the rest of the world adapt to them.
Yeah. Brainwashing young men with propaganda and sending them off to die in a pointless war means creating adults.
The 80's ended and the economy went into recession. The rise kotaku culture and other forms of distraction gave an outlet for disaffected youth to retreat from society instead of rebel against its conformity
There was a tiny little bit more in Japanese history and culture than that.
I'm guessing it's Miyazaki again.
How could you not sense the tonal problem? Miyazaki belongs to war generation and is smart enough to understand complains like these would only make him a grumpy grandfather. No, he would say it differently (and he does).
The lack of identity IS this generation's identity. The user talking about this shit going in cycles is right, minus their weird alt-right slant. It's like how the post-war generations was marked by an artistic/aesthetic lean towards abstraction (Dadaism for WWI, surrealism for WWII, psychedalia for Vietnam, etc.) this generation's culture, largely shaped by the Internet, tends towards the strange and abstract. This was further fueled by the collective obsession with "irony" stemming from the 'hipster' subculture of the late 2000s/2010s. Eventually, things get so abstract and ironic that it loops into anti-humor. 'Weird Twitter'? The increasingly elaborate corruptions/edits of old memes? kek, lel, all of that? That's this generation's identity. Take it how you will.
I guess if you hate fun, yeah.
get out, /v/
western higher education system
less to complain about than the boomers
confirmed for not being in the western education system. show me a single college in this country that one could feasibly pay for, or at least knock a chunk out of the cost of, with a shitty summer job. unless you're a minority, a woman, or poor as fuck, someone today is probably gonna have a rougher time making it in this country than their boomer parents/grandparents. and even then, it still might be just as shitty.
West =/= USA
i suppose not, but the term "boomer" implies we're talking about the US.
The GG hashtag is not the mainstream, user.
Getting real spooky there, mate.
We don't need that anymore. This isn't the 90's or the 80's. We have SocJus Warriors and the Nazis are still here. Dindu gang and gangwars are a thing because KKK died as a gang.
If I've read Sukeban Deka and Hana no Asuka-gumi, what else is there about sukebans?
Where the hell did someone tell you you should expect to pay back the costs of college on a summer job? Do you find it some kind of great social sin you can't buy a car or a house with no loans on minimum wage?
And on almost every issue the boomers protested against, from racial relations to women's issues to voting age/the draft, there is far less to complain about now then 50 years ago. People are so desperate to have causes to fight for they invent things like "rape culture" or the 1% (there are so many ways to pick apart the "1%" statistic that I don't even know where to start) so they can have things to bitch about. The evidence behind these things is so shoddy it can't stand on it's own, but people eat it up because they want to fight for the "right side of history" like the Civil Rights Movement and Second Wave feminism.
As an adult you should be expected to plan your own path and make your own decisions. That involves taking responsibility for those decisions. You should have a solid finical plan that allows you to graduate with minimal/no debt with a high-enough paying job that you can pay back any remaining debts in a reasonable time frame. That involves extensively researching job opportunities for your major and networking while in school and making damn sure you are going to make it when you graduate AKA do more then take your teacher at their word when they tell you there are "lots of jobs" for Film Studies majors.
The fact that anyone should have to tell anyone else this, or that anyone should react allergically to the idea they should do more then "find themselves" and "pursue their dreams" in college by taking classes that are the educational equivalent of candy is evidence that Japan is not the only nation of children out there.
How do you know that, have they explicitly said it? I didn't think shounen jump would announce things like that.
How old is that post?
It was Anno.
