Thats an interesting way of looking at sex positive feminism... Maybe its just cause in an academic context its usually referring to sex workers and issues around legalization and the "morality" of their practice. Its in stark contrast to the majority of anime/manga which portray women with a sense of purity and often as virgins. I think its a much more realistic, but harsh portrayal. I like his art too in general, very diff from other mangaka. Apparently there is a Naoki Urasawa no Manben episode about him, but I don't think its subbed :(

As for Believers and Jonestown, I think plagiarized is kind of a strong word. Also Japan has many cults of its own. Suicide cults and also the famous cult that carried out the gas attacks. Apparently cults are a really big problems in Japan, I imagine because of its collectivist nature people are more likely to fall for them. Scientology is apparently really big there too.

Yeah definitely. While Believers in inarguably his best work, a lot of his other stuff is a great read. It feels different from author mangaka. A little more mature, a little more experienced; but also harsh and somewhat frightening. It's hard to explain somehow, but it just evokes strange emotions in me that I don't regularly feel while reading manga lol. Arigatou and Asatte Dance were great, although I thought parts of Arigatou could be needlessly cruel at times I still found it very brazen and I enjoyed the "harshness" I guess. It's funny that he seems to be really unkown on this site, but the first time I was exposed to him was from a review from the creator/admin of the site Xinil lol.

Yo fam I heard you're into Naoki Yamamoto

I wouldnt necessarily say that elitism or smugness is the same as intolerance, it may indicate it but you can be arrogant and elitist for many other reasons. ThatAnimeSnob for example said that he is so aggressive and insulting because he wants to stir up conversation, you know make them defend their position harder. Or you could do it for fun. But yeah you kinda get the idea..
Lockensocke Jan 12, 2018 1:01 AM
Well I always thought that people like „ThatAnimeSnob“ are the norm what everyone considers as „elitist“. You know people who actively demean people because of their taste. But what do I know, I have been called an elitist multiple times by now and I haven’t really been active in the community in the past 2 years so…

Howdie! :)
Well, I do not really remember where and in which manner I stated that there are racist elements in "Giant Killing" but it is shining through at a few points in the manga up to this date. It is no fervent xenophobia expressed in hateful or vulgarising ways but with nearly all foreign players or managers you will encounter cultural/"racial" stereotpyes in "Giant Killing". There's hotheaded Brazilians, a diva-like half-Italian who likes Italian sports cars, an eccentric Frenchman and so on.

Not sure I can recall one foreign character in this manga that wasn't designed to stand out, who was just a normal bloke - which doesn't mean that there were none, just that the stereotyping comes to notice in a stronger manner (to me).

Yep. I accept all friend requests and I've been on this site a while. Also I've written a LOT of reviews.
Polyphemus Nov 25, 2017 5:33 PM
I get that but they're both great imo
Deathko Nov 22, 2017 12:02 PM
Haha thanks a lot. I spent too much time on english-speaking forums instead of working, but you'd definitely guess at my accent. (^:

They're both illustrations made by Kazuo Kamimura, a 70's mangaka you sadly won't find online, or in english, with the exception of Lady Snowblood (the story wich inspired Kill Bill). I'm... not really drawing or playing music, at least not at any interesting level, and more than a couple hours/month :c

Hello!

Deconstruction is a storytelling method wherein the media takes a familiar concept then re-examine it in a different (usually more realistic) light. Basically, it takes something that we're all very familiar with and re-introduces it in a way to make us realize that we've been looking at it through a 'media view' -- that is a view that is colored by our experience with prior media.

For example, the manga trope of the 'genki girl'; a girl that is overwhelmingly vibrant, cheerful, and tends to be a little ditzy. The average manga would just tell you that's how she is and presents her as positive model. The deconstructionist method might say the source of her unyielding cheerfulness is actually an internal battle against severe clinical depression. Or how about the wandering hero searching relentlessly for that 'legendary treasure' that'll help him achieve his dream? In reality, he might be running away chasing a wild goose because he is lost with his life.

I hope I explained it clearly. As for deconstruction in relation to the manga, I'm afraid I can't offer much help there.

My reading of Himizu and my review occurred in 2015. In those two years, I've forgotten almost the entirety of the manga, except for the very impressing parts here and there. I have an idea and slight remembrance of what I might have meant when I said the manga is a deconstruction of chasing a dream, but my memory might be off and it might turn out inaccurate.

As my profile say... Oh wait, it doesn't say where I live since a good year. France :3. The north of France. Omelette du fromage, baguette, surrender at the first casualty and all that jazz (^:. Manga and anime are mainstream here since the 70's, so I don't have any trouble finding stuff :3.

No I wasn't mad. I just found it amusing.
Whalelala Oct 1, 2017 8:49 AM
Lol you made a review on a popular anime/manga but I can't remember which one. You gave it a very low score :P
