For a long time I keep hearing from the international English speaking anime fandom that Neon Genesis Evangelion is a "deconstruction" of the mecha genre. Even if whole "Deconstruction" aspect when interpreted in the manner Derrida intended(which is actually an deconstructionist way of doing things he had developed instead of Eva being a deconstruction), it seems that the person coming to such conclusions is clueless about "tragedy" as a concept as a whole. When pointed out how such stories were already there and how tragedy was there central theme, staunch advocates of this idea start to shift the goal post and point about how it was little in number or how it subverted most of the "shonen" "mecha" show "tropes". When asked how they came to that conclusion, they start throwing hissy fits or stop replying. I find it ironic that how "Deconstruction" is thrown around as a buzzword to imply how a particular story made the tropes common to the medium undergo a reality check when in actuality as a post modernist tool deconstructionist readings does not takes reality as an absolute scale. Which is why when one googles the term "genre deconstruction", he only finds the tvtropes page and bunch of anime vids and forums. As Derrida himself said - Deconstruction cannot produce sitcom

So, my question is
>On what basis they came to this conclusion?
>Is it because the habit of the Occident to interpret the Orient the way it seems relatable to itself in terms of context?
>Why anime fans in west are so indulgent in such buzzword pretentiousness, like using words "mature", "realistic", "intelligent", "strategic"in same vein?

Here I am asking you fellas to get your POV about this issue around the mecha genre.. I will post it on /a/ to get their POV too.
Thanks in advance for taking your time and answering this question

I take it you haven't seen Shin Godzilla?
You got a picture of Anno operating a camera?
>Is it because the habit of the Occident to interpret the Orient the way it seems relatable to itself in terms of context?

Pretty much. Which is why you get so many people talking about Freud or christianity, it’s the first thing that comes to mind. Also as I think this thread has proved a lot of people have a very loose grasp of what Derrida was talking about with deconstruction. Subverting themes that may or may not be inherent in a work =/= deconstruction. A better example of deconstruction in anime might be something like nekojiru-sou the film vs. nekojiru-sou the manga.
>replying to your own slop
>still don't understand the concept of deconstruction
ZZzzz fuck off retard
lol I’m not the OP you fucking retard, and there’s a 100% chance that the one who doesn’t understand what they’re talking about is you. Have you even read Derrida? Did you even read my post? I’m willing to bet you’re a drooling retard with no education, trying to gain ego points by lecturing people on the internet about a cartoon.

I, too, liked the AJM 9.
Its a Saiga that hit every ugly branch on the ugly tree.

Unironically one of the best movies ever made even outside the /m/ genre. How did Anno do it? It's a masterpiece in film making.

Oh I see. Then Is Mecha English?
As far as I can tell, the word "Mecha" originated in Japan, but as a shortened form of an English word, either Mechanism or Mechanical, both part of the same family of words. So I suppose it's a Japanese variation of an English word.

The faggots over at /co/ cannot appreciate the greatness that is Iron Man, so let's have a general here, away from those goshdarned Plebs. Post anything and everything related to Iron Man; HCs, fan-art, favorite run, even fucking goddamn ships, I don't give a fuck. I just wanna have an Iron Man thread without the "Tiny Stank" autist messing everything up. Oh, and post armors. Lots of sexy, sexy armors. Much as I hated the BENIS run, the suit was pretty tight, so let's start with that.

PS: If you post any Ree-Ree shit, you might as well post her dick-sucking lips; otherwise don't even bother.

Probably my favorite moment in Iron Man history.
>almost 1610-Mjölnir
The trade collecting this story was the first iron man book I ever bought. Fucking loved it.
Speaking of MCU Rhodey, I was wondering why he was more friendly than usual with everyone, especially Falcon. Makes me wonder if he feels slight remorse from his call to have Vision shoot Falcon "into a glider" that caused his fall. He's basically Falcon's new air buddy with a full arsenal during the Wakanda fight.
Rhodey's also had a few years to see the Accords haven't done anything useful, especially with goddamn Ross at the helm.

I've been print screening the pages in my shitty notebook for some time. So far we are at vol 6/11. Of course the quality is really bad, but until someone does a better job, this will be what we have.

Was looking up Zeo episodes last night.
I noticed every single episode is some lame ass vaudevillian Jew pun.
It doesn't help that Zeo it's self is a joke of a season but episode titles just solidify it all.
>I'm holding out hope that he gets team killed
he will but it will be red tommy, red tommy, green tommy, black tommy, and white tommy
What about Cam and Gem?

Oh and they brought back Adam for Once a Ranger
Gem was definitely a virgin jealous that Gemma was gonna get that Scottish claymore.
Cam was basically tech-sexual. In an inversion of the usual cliche, when he made a robot so he could do the double life gig easier, Cyber-Cam was the guy who went out and had fun while Cam stayed inside and coded.
What's wrong with Zeo, besides the letter and the singing episode?

What does /m/ think of SW cancelling all their spin off movies and just focusing on Ep.9 and Rian Johnsons trilogy? I thought it would have been a good idea to make a anthology movie from the point of view of the empire. Maybe a movie based around the people who make the weapons of war used in SW. Looks like that won't be happening now.

So more semblance in realism. Thanks anon, you fixed a dilemma of boredom.
Well Tank Police isn't steeped in realism. Gundam just can't shake off it's commercial nature, same as SW
The light/dark balancing act idea makes little sense as it takes away motivation to do anything.

Point. But I'm gonna have a better time watching a tank cop run around in a bio cloud infested Japan than having part MM3.14 of a science fiction homage to a serial that never got the proper remake...save for the '80 film.
G Gundam, Gundam IBO are not onions.
