Link and Hylia, The Legends of Zelda by Ilora24

this is actually some halfway decent computer animation you have going here. Sure the graphics themselves look pretty gamecube, but tha...

we are seriously starved for a good relevant anime satire here in the states

Sure, we have alot of animes that poke fun at the industry (outbreak company, kill la kill, and ESPECIALLY gintama) but trying to find a good satire of anime that wasn’t made by people who haven’t touched anime since the 90’s here in the U.S is like trying to find the secret campground of bigfoot, jimmy hoffa, and mighty the armadillo!

That isn’t to say that none of these satires are funny. Hell, I still think the futurama episode “action delivery force” is one of their funniest episodes! But regardless, when it comes to the tropes of the anime industry, most of the people poking fun at it, and the things they poke fun of, just aren’t relevant anymore. They were relevant in the 90’s but….

choppy and badly synced voice acting? no longer a serious issue

bad animation? I think it’s safe to say that’s no longer a problem

rampant sexism? I won’t say it’s gone, because it REALLY isn’t, but they’ve certainly gotten a better hold on things then they did before

extreme ultra violence? again, not an issue we’ve stamped out, but that material is now the exception rather than the rule

downright laughable attempts at americanization via dubbing? while a dub might change a few lines here and there, it’s safe to say you won’t be seeing someone call a rice ball a “jelly doughnut” anymore 

and yet, the jokes continue to fly, regardless of whether or not anyone even gets them anymore. An industry is constantly evolving, and thus satire and parody must evolve with it, if it wants to stay relevant and funny

The reason we all cheered and laughed when a simpsons episode showed the titular family entering the house dressed as current anime characters was because a show from our country acknowledged the shows we’re watching right now, and that there was a joke or two to make about those shows that would reach an audience.

for any comedians reading this who are wondering what current topics they can aim at, I’ll gladly supply

  • the over saturation of shonen like one piece and naruto
  • the escalation of attack on titan to near hyper divinity, and how that’s only hurting the show’s popularity because people’s expectations are either set way too high, or they’re so annoyed with the fandom, they hate the show purely out of spite
  • the mecha genre constant need to make a successor to evangelion, filling the genre with emotionally draining, navel gazing, pretension as far as the eye can see
  • one piece going on for over 700 issues and still going strong
  • and finally, the anime community’s outright hostility to anyone who harbors a differing opinion on a show they like

have fun!

ETSS out…

I'd wait until playing the game itself before being able to give an answer
