Darling in the Franxx will be a future classical masterpiece. Mark my words

Darling in the Franxx will be a future classical masterpiece. Mark my words.
It is a rare thing for me to consider an anime to have enough meaning outside its own individual world that it is worth looking at from the standpoint of literary analysis.
Most of the time, anime is a very self-contained thing.
It's is not only a deconstruction of mecha (like Evangelion) but also a deconstruction of life itself.
The primary theme is a contrast between supernatural, spiritual, judgment and the will to stand and fight against it. This is a relatively common Japanese theme also seen in Xenogears and it’s remakes and uncommon or at least different in the rest of the world.
The theme that made Darling in the Franxx stand out was its meta-commentary on the giant robot genre as a whole, specifically its use of children as giant robot pilots and actors in war.
Life doesn’t always give you a reason to hope for the better, but you should still do it.
Connecting with other people is hard, and trying to do it is painful, but there’s something worth trying about it.
The show takes people in a situation where they can’t find happiness nor successfully connect with others, and shows them continuing in their determination.
Too often, we use science fiction as a simplistic medium, one detailing invaders who attack solely because they view us as filth not worth the planet we stand upon.
We treat ourselves as a race that can do no good in a nihilistic, godless world, and one that would either be wiped out by invaders who decide we are too large of a threat, or perhaps that we aren’t even worth coming in contact with.
Darling in the Franxx will be a future classical masterpiece. I'm already starting to invest a lot on Darling in the Franxx merchandise because I know they will cost me fortunes in the future.

Anyways, I wanna fuck the oni

Is this NTR?

Falseflagging this obvious should warrant a public ban.

You could have just posted your blog on reddit/facepunch and got a million upboats.

So with the opposite happening to hiro after riding with zerotwo then what usually happens with stamen who ride with her, do you think it'll actually boil down to hiro physically needing to ride with her or risk dying?

By tainting the blood they mean women incorporating male DNA into themselves right?



lol,'member Kiznaiver?

Reminder that Darling in the Franxx is an allegory of Karling the Frank, first emperor of HRE.


It's an insult to robo anime

Nobody will remember it after it ends.

I will

I will and I will make Sup Forums remember as well.

Nice twist or ass pull, we'll have to wait

Ill post a thread everyday here for a whole year

Put your pants back on, the series isn't even over yet.

This is going to be the next TTGL

Nice shitpost but too long, only gonna read 2 or 3 sentences cause it a bit boring, but there's passion behind it.

Darlingin the Franxx is a bread-and-circuses carnival (disguised as “The Rapture,” a young otaku fan told me) that is intended to keep millennial audiences docile. Maybe that explains the cartoon's unavoidable sell and Sup Forums's desperate genuflection. Love of ecchi is not love of anime, just consumerist habit. The Otaku Generation — that unfortunate rabble primed to see these cartoons at the precise moment they were becoming culturally responsive — are not necessarily the audience the anime brats deserved; they’re spawn of Baby Boomer affluence and narcissism. Darling turned their natural curiosity and wonder into self-satisfaction, artificially dependent on fan-service and merchandising (a tragedy also evident in Ghibli evangelism).

A boy falls in love with an oni.
Unable to confess, he is gifted with compatibility by Deus ex Papa with the oni's DinoAIDS. Never minding the strange tumor, he immediately rides her, and is overjoyed to find out that she calls him darling.
But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day’s confessions to his childhood friend, she only looks at him with a jealous expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the oni he rode with is not the childhood friend he cucked. In fact, she's way better and got dat oni booty. She is the childhood friend's better alternative, who has fallen in love with the MC’s blue horn, who too is blissfully unaware of its existance.
Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to ride the FranXX in order to escape the birdcage. While the two are busy cucking Ichigo, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love and question the NATURE of PAPA.

Not hype enough for that.

Nope. Promare is going to literally be the next TTGL.

Good thread
