I talk about the absolute state of anime and why I am dismissive of them. Are they art? How do they compare to other forms of art like literature or painting? (I am very proud of the Serial Experiments Lain/Sexpunk 1998 thumbnail as well.)
Are animes a pathetic waste of time or am I antifun? Let's find out!
The answer could actually be both.
We're going to talk about animes on this video. I'm going to be doing the read the email kinda of video. A lot of people have been talking about anime recently. Rampantly there's this new thing in Linux where the kernel where it's easier to watch anime or something, I don't know anything about it. You'd have to ask someone else. 'Cause I don't care about anime, I don't care about no animes. Actually that's not what's going to be the video about.
Why why on so many occasions, speak about animes, speak about animes, explain my point using this email that I got.
So this email is from Allison: Allison says "In/On setting a good example on zoomers [one of my videos] some of the videos, the hermetic answer on the article on my website, you said something along the lines 'Anime and porn aren't worth spending the time on because they are inert activities that don't give you back-don't give you anything from them.' Which makes no sense. In a comment you also said 'Video consumption [I guess watching videos/Youtube a lot] is also wasteful' which stuck with me because it was very honest, because games are art, it is not worthwhile to spend time with them, for you get nothing in return. But paintings are also art, does this mean it's not worthwhile to spend time with them movies, poems, literature. Or the more kind of art that matters like maybe there's some modernist art with be worthwhile. But then that raises the questions with what criteria is worthwhile watching arch should be." Etc. etc..
So this brings a good point. This compares Allison as a boy name, in the US it's a girl name, but I'm assuming this is a boy, has some, he has some, um, Portoguese last name.
So anime, they're art right? Well first of all, a lot of people are like "Well animes aren't art." But I'm actually cuck out on this and say, yes, animes are art. They'res lot of narrative involved, there's lot of graphical art involved, there's it actually takes a lot to put together an anime, sometimes it's a lot more than than a book. Now there's big corporations that make animes. So if animes are art, why would it be wrong/wasteful to consume that kind of art and not some other kinds of art.
Now let me give you an example ok. I once had a girldfriend ok. And she is notable because she read hours and hours of, she read these books in the middle of times and stuff. It's like one book hundreds of pages and there's like a bagillion volumes on the series. She was a big fan of Brandon Sanderson ok. Like these kind of books that I have. I have one wheel of time book, back here that I've never read K. It's like this but they're like thirty thousand of them in the series. She loved these stuff, loved these things, she would read lots of them. She would probably ran hours and hours of her life, spent hours of her life reading that kinda of stuff. Um now, that said, she wasn't weird because of it. That is, she didn't uh wanted to escape out unto social things because she wanted be home and read her books. She sorted if she had time she'd open a book and that was it. It wasn't like an addicting thing to her. Now if you asked her about it she'd talk about it, very glowingly about the book she read. But it wasn't even something something she wasn obsessively pushing on everyone. Where I feel like that is much the case in a lot of times with Anime. The one thing about anime that separates them from literature, even the consuming of this kind of literature might be/take the same amount of time, as watching a Corporate list or something like that, depending on how it's/how fast you read it a couple of animes. Uh um so, you know, I don't think it's just the time issue, the issue is more like Anime are crafted now days to be maximally addicting. They are just designed like the moe, and the characters, and the styles of the anime, incentivize you to conspire to incentivize to watch more and more. You have things like Crunchyroll, things like Netflix, that give you achievements to watching minute things in the anime. All of it is just putting you on a big hamster wheel, where you have this illusion of accomplishment where I got to go, you sort of feel like it's your job, like I have to get this done, you know. Uhm, so people will spend more and more time watching these animes not just, mind you it starts "Oh I have some time, let me just watch some anime because I'm bored". But it eventually devolves into "Oh I'm in a social event, oh I'm iat school, oh I'm at church, oh I'm somewhere else, and I'm thinking about watching anime. Where's as I do not feel that that ex girlfriend that I use as an example, I don't feel as
