Thank you for your attention, even if everything we've talked about is Nietzsche, this was pretty interesting, I guess that this kind of story with this emotional power could be written and done so well only by someone that has sacrificed his life in his own work, as I think Miyazaki did.

The Marxist Leninist Maoist thing was a joke, I guess that when I finally check K-on! out I'll try to text you up about my thoughts on it.
Thanks again for your effort and time!

Justified criticism of pretetentious assholes isn’t trolling. Saying Fate/Zero is philosophical is a much better example of trolling.

You yourself described themes presented and explored in all the things you listed as pseudo-philosophical (except Ergo Proxy) so I don't see how you can say that they "merely make reference to philosophy without being genuinely philosophical".
But hey, you're the post-grad student in philosophy so who am I to argue? :^)

Are you really a post-grad philosophy student? I'm quite disappointed that you can only manage to name three actual philosophers, and not even the ones that are the most appropriate.

I find your psychological anime post to be really well interesting, I really love The Wind Rises and I liked that reading of it you made, then, if it isn't asking too much, I would really like to hear your opinion on the famed "fact" that the movie is partially based on Miyazaki's life. Sure the Nietzche human excellence thing is something you could talk about when refering to the morals of the film, but what about that feeling of having wasted your "10 years on the sun", or even your whole carreer? Feeling it as a failure even if it has given you survival, and even other people's appreciation? Sure Jirou had a much more conflicting talent, he wanted to compose awesome planes, but the only way his country gave him the opportunity to do it was to make them to be send to kill people, with ideals that weren't his own, and while Ghibli films haven't kill anybody, it was an effective simile to convey its deppresing, but encouraging message (to do things differently), this also including the fact that Jirou, at least as the anime character, lost his opportunity to love just because he was totally absorved by his job.
Then, supposing the film is kind of a shared biography (between him and the real Horikoshi), What does it tell you about Hayao as an artist? Is there a name for that kind of philosophy? Sure a lot of people feel it when job stops being just their obligation and it takes over their lifestyle, but with this kind of geniuses, that actually do what they love, it is rather a conception of effort over life and passion over their own humanity and emotions; that kind of love is incredible, but do these people need to not live normal lifes to be present in posterity? To be a genius do you need to let go your own person?
I think I just made a circled path from, and to, the Nietzche thing, I'm sorry if my dumb analysis had to be perpetrated on your profile, and I'm also sorry for not posting directly in the forum, but I really wanted to share some thoughts on this animation, and I don't think it was quite the theme of your post on the first place.
Note: It is also interesting that you have K-on as one of your favorites too, I guess it was a Marxist Leninist Maoist show after all, I hope the overkill of cute girls show doesn't ruin what you people feel about it for me when I watch it.

i agree gun control's something that should really be taken aboard in the us, but, that said, germany (which has some of the strictest gun laws in the eu) has had several school shootings (winnenden 2009, 16 killed), gun crime is slowly coming back in britain (in the cities), whilst switzerland, where purchasing semi-automatics is legal, has one of the lowest rates of gun crime in the world.

ah, true true. poverty's definitely a major factor in violent crime, and, ironically enough, institutional violence probably plays a part in general violent crime too.

what about stuff like pathological terrorism as a form of violence? one could argue tv is responsible for a large part of it, such as school shootings. the vast majority of school shootings after 1990 were done by columbiners, or inspired by columbine, and some have said a key reason for this is that no restraints were placed on the media when recording, meaning that the footage was "too" accessible for other youths.

ayo you seem like you'd be up for some interesting discussions (or at least you said you're interested in analytical philosophy) so i thought i'd drop by and say hi :)

but, anyway, do you think television is the main reason for violence in our society today?
