Study has shown that men are more likely to litter the floor with 8% admit that they litter while only 2% of women admit to the fact. This is certainly a disgusting, appalling and terribly ingrained act of sexism. When a man litter, he does not gives a fuck and expect others to pick up the garbage for him and stats has shown that cleaners are most likely women. This is a blatant act that shown how ingrained the patriarchy system is and how men are empowering themselves by dominating these poor woman cleaners.

We should stop this terrible act and ignore the fact that littering is just an ungraceful act because it’s an attack to modern day feminism! Here we have a video of a man and woman committing the act of littering and the result will shock you! NO ONE GAVE A FUCK WHEN THEY LITTER THE FLOOR BUT THE MAN STATED THAT HE FELT EMPOWERED BECAUSE HE CAN DO WHAT HE WANTS WHILE THE WOMAN ACT ALL DAINTY AND DISGUSTED BECAUSE IT’S NOT AN ACT THAT SHE IS COMFORTABLE WITH AND PEOPLE TOOK PICTURE OF HER BECAUSE SHE’S A HOT BLONDE WITH HUGE TITS AND PERFORM STUPID LOOKING STUNTS WHILE LITTERING. LITTERING IS SO FUCKING SEXIST!

I used to be a Pokemon fan. I woke up every Saturday morning to catch a Pokemon episode. School used to force us to attend extra curriculum lesson on Saturday and I skipped all of them because I want to watch Pokemon. I played Pokemon Red/Blue so much that I can complete it within 2 hours by utilizing turbo speed on my Gameboy emulator. I could navigate the dark cave without flash and avoid every trainer battles. I am very hardcore.

I followed every iteration of Pokemon until emerald, then I realise that they are just repeated content with marginal improvement every generations. The mechanic and concept of the game didn’t change or improve much and the new thing you can do now is molest your Pokemon. How can people accept this bullshit when they are outraged by the yearly update of sports game and Call of Duty? Why are the same people that call bullshit on CoD, accept Pokemon so whole heartily? What the fuck is wrong with people? Pokemon is the least improved game from its first generation to its last and Gamefreak had pretty much ship the same fucking game for 18 years. It’s one of the least innovative game in terms of progression I ever see. I personally will not support this bullshit because you are telling the developer that it’s ok not to innovate and we will accept a mere skin change with recycled material.

This is just bullshit to me. I don’t even want to criticize the money grubbing bullshit of releasing different version of the same game tactic. People are livid when Capcom pulls that shit but it’s ok with Pokemon. Why? I have no fucking idea. This lead me to think that Pokemon is the best example of fanboy double standard and how consumer culture can be pretty terrible.I know nerds are ready in arms to counter my points by saying that they added mechanics like element and type and bullshit like that. It doesn’t fucking matter in a Single Player mode when I can just press A and mowed my way through the fucking game while I experience the same old fucking bullshit story of Pokemon thief and fighting gyms. True, if the core mechanics are so good that we shouldn’t touch it, at least make the fucking story different. People notice the bullshit that Rocky and Rambo pulled with their sequels and it became a laughing stock. Now we should gather all the cool kids and start making Pokemon seems like a laughing stock so they might actually give us a different game next time.

That’s why I always do it. You think I only post crazy pervy stuff here because I know of a fact that no one read this shit? You are wrong, man. I talk and write pervy stuff everywhere, facebook and real life. It’s the trendy things to say outrageous thing now because it’s avant garde comedy. Getting all embarrassed and shit is nerdy and out dated. The fashionable thing to do if you want to be a cool badass motherfucker like me is to talk about pervy shit openly. It’s the most effective way to let others know that you are honest, sincere and genuine with a high tolerance for humour. It’s to show that you don’t really give a fuck. Apathy is the cool things to do now.

However, there’s a delicate line between cool and creepiness. I think people is more prone to misconstrue what I wrote on the internet because people have the bad habit of judging others on the internet without knowing who the fuck they are. It’s also harder to know the tone and intention behind every post because people love to outrage. This is why there are so many people who are outrage by satirical sites.

I realize that people couldn’t differentiate jokes and seriousness on the internet. I personally feel that it’s because people love to assume superiority and treat non serious outrageous shit as idiot rambling as they are too confident with their intellect. For example, not many people realize that “Jacking to your facebook pic” is satirical and humour. They think it’s a video of a loser stupid kid who has personality disorder because they want to feel good about themselves by thinking that they are smarter than this kid without realizing that he is just joking.

People are not that stupid. When you see constant outrageous stupid shit, they are most likely intentionally outrageous and stupid. Take tv personality like Skip Bayless for example, do you think they are stupid and totally believed in what they said? No, it’s just exaggerated half truth to fuel the need for people to be outrage because they understand that people tuned in just to hate watch them. They earned millions by acting stupid and have us duped. We stupidly relish in how much smarter we are when they are earning big bucks and relax in their jacuzzi while we seat in front of our pathetic tv, thinking about how to deal with our next rental.

We love to think we are better than others so we look down on them to make ourselves rank better. But by doing that, we are just pleasuring ourselves without moving forward because we are safe and conceit with the knowledge that at least we are better than someone. There’s a reason why supposedly talentless hack like Nicki Manaj is taking a private jet while we are waiting for a fucking bus. They are(or have) geniuses behind the scene who know what audience react to so we are the stupid one who fall into their trap.

I think it’s Louis C.K who had this piece about how after all the hardcore porno, you will return to the soft core photo of a tennis player or something for your masturbatory aid when you reached a certain level of expertise. This is very true.

I am always piss off when people advice others to just watch porn when someone share their awesome pervy stories about how they received tits pic on snap-chat or how they freeze frame on a certain non porno movie to sneak a peak. Come on man, has some common sense and understand that you are dealing with the pro here. Do you think they don’t know the existence of porn until your advice? Fuck you, contrary to that, they know too much about porno so they are finding these tiny little bit of excitements from unexpected sources because hardcore porno is too stale for them now. They had too much hardcore porn so they need a change of pace and understand how to attain a higher level of enjoyment by finding new experience from alternative directions out there.

It’s fun finding pervy shit from something that is not meant for that because it works your imagination.It also contains the element of surprise which is akin to the joy of finding two yolks in one egg. Imagination feedback is sometimes more effective than visual stimuli and it’s an entirely different experience. The whole imagination feedback thing is also why softcore mag and youtube video work better than hardcore porno sometimes because it works your brain.

So next time before trying to be a smart ass and advice people sarcastically by pointing them to porn site, understand that you are dealing with people that are much more evolved and experienced in the art of masturbation and have no time to deal with lowly life forms that could only jack off mindlessly with hardcore visual stimuli .

Gen Urobuchi’s popularity is weird considering years ago before Stein;Gate and Fate/Zero(a novel derived from visual novel that make people who diss Fate/Stay Night re-look at it), people don’t really take visual novel seriously. They are seen as porn games and nothing good will ever come out from it. Then Gen Urobuchi took what were great in visual novel(the line crossing melodrama and brutality) to anime and people start to love these visual novel tropes.

It’s weird because the things he brought in are always present in Visual Novel and the same people who look down on it before are now embracing and loving the shit out of this guy. Before Fate/Zero and Madoka, Nitro+ has already been doing brutal shit like Kikokugai and Saya no Uta. Hell, besides Nitro+, the whole visual novel scene is full of crazy brutality you have never seen in anime like Muv Luv Alternative. If you thought Madoka was brutal, Muv Luv Alternative is at least 10x darker and edgier. Pretty sure the Mami head biting stuff is inspired by Muv Luv Alternative as well.

People’s fascination with visual novel like brutality continues on with Attack of Titan and people again love how brutal it was without realizing that Muv Luv Alternative is the inspiration of the manga and was way more bleak and brutal than the manga will ever be.

So am I implying that people who once look down on visual novel are ignorant? Yes, definitely, they wrote off everything about it(like how people wrote off anime as pedophilia bullshit and DBZ) and ended up loving tropes and element that were introduced to anime by it. It’s the same as light novel because people don’t realize that Twelve Kingdom is a light novel and there are too many great light novels to write the whole medium off. Light novel is a marketing label anyway and they can turn everything that you once identify as real literary work into a light novel. For eg, if Murakami’s novels were adapted into anime or publisher think his work suits the light novel crowd and it’s a great idea to publish it as a light novel, they will fucking do it. Happened to Hyouka and Another by the way.

However, that’s not what I want to discuss today. What I want to say is that, as someone who’s renowned for his edginess and brutality, Gen Urobuchi is pretty weak in terms of human suffering and edginess. I can easily list down tons of things that are way more brutal than works that he had done.

This might stem from the fact that Gen Urobuchi writes concept better than he writes characters. How brutal a work is is directly related to how attached you are with the characters. So when I see people head got bitten off, I will feel more desperation when the character is someone that I like instead of someone that I barely even care.

I don’t like any of Gen Urobuchi’s character in Fate/Zero and Madoka except for Waiver and Rider. They are all generic anime characters with generic anime motivation that isn’t even cool like Onizuka. I need something relevant to real life or over the top anime-ish awesomeness to care about a character. Waiver and Rider with their larger than life personality is what I am looking for.

The others? I can’t even remember much about them. Kyoko’s plight and motivation is because of something that has to do with her father, who I might add is someone that was only introduced through exposition so I don’t really know or care. Madoka’s plight is what? I have no idea. Akemi’s whole motivation is that she wants hot lesbian sex with Madoka but disguise it as friendship and all of these were build up with 1 episode. Weak characters that I can’t attach to because they aren’t realistic or awesome.

I did say Urobuchi is better with concept than character but then again, not saying that they are bad but the concepts of Urobuchi aren’t that bleak anyway. His world destruction and human sufferings are pretty tame. Take Sayaka from Madoka for example, her plight is all anime-ish melodramatic girly relationship issue and the whole end result of being magical girl is just turning to a witch for balance of energy.

There are too much hope and positivity with that scenario of entropy(shitty wrong science by the way) being unbalance. It can be easily solved with a lot less sacrifice that won’t affect the world population. In my eyes, that’s not edgy at all because I am too savvy with Bokurano’s manga with the character’s plight being getting raped, being bullied for having a prostitute mother and family crumbling down. The end result of Bokurano’s characters? Annihilation of a whole parallel universe and imminent death. What the character needs to go through? Commit fucking genocide of the whole population while vomiting to keep their own universe safe.

All these just make the plight and suffering of Madoka look like kiddy stuff because Bokurano deal with realistic issues with true bleakness that has no hope or anyway out. Maybe people like Madoka for other reason but I am looking for real brutality and hopeless situation but it failed to deliver consider all the rage and hype from it.

People also bring up all the talk of deconstruction of magical girl show as if they have seen more than one magical girl show in their life. This is why I don’t buy the deconstruction allure to it because I know of the fact that people who brought it up have not seen enough magical girl show to even be qualified to make that fucking statement.

I actually don’t even know what deconstruction means because I have never seen a good, easy to understand example of it. I read the wikipedia and its all complicated literary jargon that seems difficult to understand without taking real literary lesson. Hell, the wikipedia page of it list “This article may be too technical for most readers to understand.” as an issue so I doubt people who use the word deconstruction even know what it means. They just take it as taking apart common elements of a genre and give an idea of what will really happen in real life if they attempt that. For example, when a harem main try to peek in the woman bath room, he will most likely be caught and send to court trial instead of getting away with a punch. But I don’t think that’s even true because I don’t want to assume what’s right or wrong when I have no idea what it really means.

Then again. if you want to assume that deconstruction means that, I think Magical Punie Chan did the whole deconstruction of magical girl stuff better with more satirical edge and it’s actually funny and mean spirited in a good with pretty realistic character’s personality. Like if you have real magical power, you will be Punie Chan and abuse it to make people as your slaves to power your train. At least that’s what I will do.

People are embarrassed in talking about penis, this will not matter if there aren’t things that you must know about it . However, people are so hush hush about it that it’s not surprising to find people who have no basic ideas on some of the common problem with it One search on google and you will retrieve tons of result of uncircumcised dude not knowing that you must retract the foreskin of your penis in order to clean it. God damn it! I am one of them and didn’t start trying to pull back my foreskin until I was like 20. Can you imagine that? 20 years of accumulated smegma and dry pee. The fucking horror.

After reaching twenty, I tell myself that there might be a random chance that I have to have sex so I must be prepared to make sure my penis works. I also heard from my friend on how he circumcised his penis after noticing that his bro’s penis is retractable but not his. That’s also the first time I heard that your penis should be easily retractable. ‘

I remembered back in the day when I am this stupid ass 5 years old kid, my papa told me to pull back my foreskin when I shower, it’s a good advice but pulling the skin back is so tough and nauseating. The penis gland fucking stings and hurts a lot. I tried it throughout my life but totally gave up on it. I didn’t really care too much about it because I could masturbate easily and it’s not affecting my life.

I started playing with my penis since I was 5 years old. I don’t even know why I did that, I think I just overheard from someone that it feels good to play with your penis. I don’t even know anything about sex or whatever but I instinctively know that playing with your penis is something very dirty, that’s why I always do it discreetly.

Here comes the 1st problem! I am doing it wrong all the fucking time! I wear my shorts and just hump my pillow until it feels good. This will result in deformed penis and tons of complications. It will also aggravated your tight foreskin issue.

Anyway, no juice will come out until you are around 11 or 12. The first time I felt juice coming out, I thought it was pee because I just shoot in my pants without really caring about it. Then one day, I got adventurous after watching tons of porn( I watched tons of porn but didn’t realize that sex is putting your penis inside vagina until I was 14 when my friend told me so) I start getting naked and hump my pillow. To my fucking horror, gross white pee starts shooting out.OMG! My first thought is that I got STD! I am so afraid of masturbating after that but temptation kept winning over me and I just leave it to fate if I really got STD. It’s not until I was 14 years old that I realize that maybe this shit is normal. From 12 to 14, 2 years of living in ignorance and fear.

I did the humping shit until I was around 14 years old. I always thought that using hand is too gross, I was so pure back then but once you tried the hand, you can’t go back to humping pillow. Too bad, even though I used my hand, I still do it while wearing briefs. This further aggravate my problem of not pulling my foreskin back and makes it tighter. I didn’t try dropping down my pants until I was 17 or so. Getting naked is too gross. I masturbate by rubbing my foreskin back and fore without pulling it at all, it works so whatever. I frequently still do it in brief though, easier to clean up and more discreet that way.

Then came the realization when I was 20 that I must really start pulling my foreskin back if I need to have normal sex. However, after years of bad masturbating techniques, I am doomed with a very tight foreskin that makes me faint when I tried pulling it back.I searched through the internet and start learning stuff about phimosis, paraphimosis(cannot roll foreskin back and start chocking your penis until it turns purple and die) and circumcision. Phimosis is very tight foreskin that doesn’t allow you to pull it back to your gland. I thought I had that because shit is really tight. I am so confused and afraid back then and considered the extreme in circumcision.

Luckily, there are enough good information on the internet so I didn’t do anything stupid. I did a lot of foreskin stretching and starts pulling back my foreskin bits by bits. It’s excruciating and painful because your penis gland has never been exposed to open air for 20 over years. I was vomiting and feeling nausea with cold sweat after successfully pulling it back to reveal half of my penis head. It’s a terrible experience and I cursed myself for not knowing these shit earlier. Luckily, I was manly enough to fight the nausea and did it everyday for almost a month. I also start masturbating without pants so I can stretch the foreskin.

After weeks of training, I finally could pull back half of my foreskin with some work. I tried to pull it over the whole gland but the skin rolls in weird way and I am afraid of paraphimosis so I didn’t push it for years and thought it was ok because my foreskin is too long or I have semi phimosis or whatever. I finally can clean off those damn white disgusting smegma and was happy about it. My gland is still raw and red and my corona(the penis gland rim) is still sensitive and stings as fuck but whatever, my foreskin won’t roll back to expose the corona if one day, some girl will suddenly give me a blowjob or put her vagina on my dick, or so I thought.

Then today, 16 December, 4hours ago, out of curiosity, I bought a tenga egg, a tenga onacup and an onahole to test them out because I read that they felt awesome and I wanted something better than hand. I felt like a fucking loser for buying these toys but the temptation is too frigging high! I anticipated this day for so long and stopped my fapping for a few days just to try out the supposing amazing experience.

Then I start putting my penis inside the tenga onacup and god damn it, I don’t feel any pleasure. It feels so ticklish and sometimes stings. It wasn’t so bad but I can’t ejaculate. I pulled it out and to my horror, my foreskin is fully retracted! My plan of not exposing my corona in case of magical, accidental sex did not work at all. Also, I am so used to masturbating with the foreskin, my gland is really raw and sensitive because I didn’t make any effort in desensitizing it. I always thought it was all right because it does not sting as much but I was naive.

After all this time, I always thought I had phimosis and my foreskin is too long and tight to be able to retract fully. Little did I know that I am perfectly fucking  normal in that my foreskin will automatically retract after insertion with enough lube. Now all my feeling of being a loser is gone, in fact I am so thankful that I found out my problem because I was shameless enough to try a sex toy. Imagine if I was with a woman that need me to have sex with her, how shitty of a first experience will that be when I found out that I can’t ejaculate even after hours of thrusting. Sex should be fun but I think this fantasy will be totally ruined if I didn’t realize my problem.

In order to remedy that, I worked really hard in playing with the onacup. Playing is the wrong word because I felt no pleasure. I was so bored and tired because I am just stroking my dicks for hours to desensitize my shitty penis gland. It’s not fun, I felt very bored and sometimes the penis stings. I am also afraid of paraphimosis so I kept checking if I could roll my foreskin back. Thankfully, my foreskin is not even that tight to cause paraphimosis. Even now, I am fully retracted for hours and I can roll back my foreskin easily so I don’t think paraphimosis will  ever occur. Now I am just letting the penis be fully retracted while wearing a brief over it and continues my normal life in hope that shit will finally not sting one day.

I lived in a conservative country so no one talks about penis and shit openly. This fucking suck because I would have learnt my lesson earlier on if people are more opened about it. I realize that you should really start teaching your kids about sex and masturbation at a younger age so they wouldn’t make mistakes like I did. I bet these little 5 years old buggers are playing with their penis without you knowing anyway so why not teach them the right way of doing it instead of being hush hush about it. All together, we should just embrace sex so it will not be embarrassing to talk about it. Children and adults alike could learn more and prevent complication by realizing what’s normal and what’s not.

Also, the stigma of sex toys  or men is fucking oppressing. I felt like a perverted loser for buying it because of what? Now that I think of it, I have no idea. I think people’s view will be because I am a desperate virgin that never kiss a girl. Personally I am not desperate at all because I couldn’t really care about building relationship, they are troublesome and I have other things to worry about. Not to mention, I don’t think a relationship is all about sex anyway. I find it disrespectful to equate relationship with a girl as losing virginity or sex. Even if I have sexual urge, it can be easily dealt with by masturbating. In fact, I think I really like masturbating not because I am desperate for sex but more of it being really fun to do, considering how I found it fun even when I knew nothing about sex. Now I am glad that I made the right choice so further down my life, I will not have any complication when sex is mandatory.

Internet has really helped a lot in eradicating ignorance. I learned a lot of great lessons from it. It’s also a forum for any niche shit that is out there but will never exist without internet. I am thankful in learning a lot of great lesson about penis and shit from the internet. You just can’t find any other source to learn about it casually because without the anonymity of the internet, everyone is too embarrassed to share.

There’s this interesting term “腋フォルダに” in the jap twitter/blog sphere. It basically means “going into the armpit folder” which jokingly means that “these pictures of sexy armpits are going into the fap folder on my computer”. Oh, the creativity of these Japanese internet dwellers with their internet lingos. Sometimes I am truly impressed.

I think people are starting to be more aware of the allure of underarms now. I remembered just 2 years ago, armpit fetishes on pornsites are pretty scarce but now? There are categories for that. The stigma of it being weird is starting to normalize with tons of tumblr sites dedicating to the pits popping up as well.

I never thought it was weird before because it was always there since the dawn of time. Pictures of models lifting their arms up are always the stable and the go to sexy pose in the magazines. People are already aware of that and are aroused by it but they just didn’t want to admit it and think it’s a weird fetish for some reason.

I think it’s just your usual irrational fears and obstacles human faced with the natural progression towards civilization. I believed that people once thought that fellatio was weird and dirty in the ancient civilization but they had since come to term with it and it became a very normal thing. Fellatio is pretty weird if you think about it, because, who will want to lick a things that pee came out from? However, history showed us that people accepted it and moved on. It’s getting more casual now and was thought to be a step before sex when it wasn’t in the good old day.

There are still work to be done with the stigma of the pits but nevertheless, I am pretty glad that supposed weird fetishism is gaining traction as it shows the sexual progressiveness of human kind. I think it’s all thanks to the internet where things that was once considered weird are now really very normal. Internet is the next logical evolution of Kama Sutra in determining what’s normal for sex. One day, people will come to the realization that a lot of weird things are not that weird after all.

Incest that is not rape or pedophilia but true love between two consenting party is not inherently wrong because there’s no good rationale behind why is it wrong. It’s very simple, can you give me a rationale reason why is it wrong? I personally cannot come out with anything beside personal repugnance or higher chance of passing lousy recessive genes to their offspring.

Personal repugnance is not a good argument because for example, I feel disgusted by snakes and large amount of tiny holes but they are really nothing wrong with them and they deserved every right to stay. If people like snakes or tiny holes then what rights to I have in meddling with them?

Incest don’t necessary produce deformed baby, there’s just a higher chance of getting one but that happens to everyone with terrible genes. It is wrong to stop people with terrible genes that may cause deformed baby to have sex and so is the same with those who love their sister. Sure, I understand there’s a biological reason for our disgust in incest and incest create genetic clones that doesn’t diversify and blah blah blah but homosexual can’t even produce babies and we have since understood that it’s not a really good argument because it’s not an issue that is even widespread enough to make it significant.

Seriously, what wrong with it? I don’t see anything wrong with incest anime. You can’t make a moral argument against it. Even if you argue that such a serious taboo topic should be handled with care, why the hell is it even a serious taboo topic in the first place when there’s nothing inherently wrong with it?

If there’s nothing wrong with it and it harms no one, I don’t see any reason why we really should condemn incest.

This is the recent post I made on facebook when a friend asked for anime recommendation. He is a casual fan who watched only a couple of popular shows, in other words, normal people. I did recommend him some of his favorite in the past and hint, none of the show I ever recommended him are in my top 10, except of KGNE, which is the dud where I learned that recommendation is not about listing favorite but a game of maximizing your batting average of pleasing someone:

My taste is so weird now that I am not confident enough to recommend something normal people would like but my go to choice for crowdpleaser are popular stuff like “Samurai Champloo”, “Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann”, “Full Metal Panic”, “Natsume Yujinchou“, “Rurouni Kenshin: Tsuiokuhen” and “Perfect Blue”.

“Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai”, “EF a Tales of Memories” and “Sakamichi no Apollon” were pretty good if you like stuff like Kanon 2006.

“Stein;Gate”, “Baccano” and “Tiger and Bunny” are something really popular that a lot of people like.

“One Out” and “Kaiji” if you like gambling/sport stuff.

“Cross Game” and “Hyouka” if you can stand something like Toradora.

These are all popular stuff I could think of that normal people should like. If you have no idea what to choose, “Ano hi Mita Hana No Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai” and “Sakamichi no Appollon” are things that I think you would like. They are pretty short, new, simple yet entertaining drama that work for many people.

Do I really think that Sakamichi no Apollon, Ef A Tales of Memories, Hyouka or Ano Hana are the best show in the universe? No, they ranked quite low in my own list but I recommend them because they are overwrought melodrama that works for many people. You can criticize their sledgehammer approach of manipulating emotion and their cheesiness, but normal people don’t really care because they are easily prone to these manipulation. People love the simple, hard hitting and sledgehammer approach way in story telling. What “show don’t tell”, what subtlety, what subversion, what depth, what new perspective, what implications and wrong messages? They don’t give a flying fuck. Proof? People love these shows and are fairly popular. KGNE on the other hand is way to polarizing, so protip, don’t recommend polarizing stuff like Book of Bantorra and KGNE.

If you look at your average anime viewers, they don’t really care so much about the quality of a work but more about if it’s enjoyable in their own terms. Their own terms include shonen and sometimes popular stuff  that you don’t understand like SAO and K-on. They also don’t read up on stuff so you would be surprise that they don’t know show like Mirai Nikki exist. So here’s my theory, beside the emotionally manipulative approach, most people love simple stuff that appears to have something smart or deep in them.

In order to qualify as a show with seemly depth and smartness, both of the qualities must be very pronounced, again with a sledgehammer approach. If they don’t get it, it must be shout in their face to create an illusion that it has those qualities, even they are really nothing underneath it ala Code Geass and Mirai Nikki.  I mentioned that because I found out that it doesn’t really matter if people don’t understand a show, they will still lap it up for some reason if you had create enough illusion of depth. I doubt many people could tell me what’s the point of Evangelion but normal people love it. This is further supported by how you have heard of things like “I don’t understand Inception, but it’s very good and clever!”. All these work because of  the shouting of “I have depth, I am smart” in people’s face till the extend that they really believe in it, regardless of whether it’s really there. This is very important because most people don’t grasp subtlety.

This is why I don’t recommend the really subtle or weird stuff like Haibane Renmei, Planetes and Mind Game because they have a weaker batting average of people liking it. Akira is very weird and kinda subtle as well so in fact, I won’t really recommend it because contrary to popular belief, normal people don’t really like it.

Recommend Code Geass over stuff like Haibane Renmei and Sword Art Online over Mind Game. Statistic has shown that more people get and enjoyed CG and SWO over Mind Game or Haibane Renmei. I also did some experiment and got really bad results with critics darling like Planetes and Wings of Honneamise and got unexpected result of people liking K-on, SWO, Mirai Nikki and Code Geass. If you think about it, what’s the point of recommending people stuff? It’s to tell them show that you think they would like instead of things you personally like. The end game of this all is really about maximizing batting average, not listing your favorite. Normal people much prefer explicit material than implicit stuff.

P.S: I am not judging the quality of any show, I am just telling you that you should recommend things that are not subtle, regardless of what you think of their quality.

Kokou no Hito is a manga adaptation of a Japanese novel by Nitta Jirou that journalize the mountain climbing exploit of a real Japanese hard ass mountain climber in the 30s named Kato Buntarou who have written essays of his solo climbing expedition that were used to adapt to the novel which then again got adapted to the manga by artist Sakamoto Shinichi with help from the adaption of the novel’s story by Nabeta Yoshiro even though Sakamoto Shinichi did the story after volume 4.

Yes, it’s a complicated web of multiple authors but Sakamoto Shinichi is our guy here because it’s ultimately his own story. He deviate a lot from the novel which took place in the 1930s and modernize it. I personally deduced that this complicated web of different authors explained the different in directions and focus the comic book took after the first few volumes.

The first few volumes acted like a shonen sport manga. Our hero Mori Buntarou(before he changed his name to Kato Buntarou), an anti social student with a mysterious past got inspired by a hard ass shonen hero’s rival and took up mountain climbing as a hobby. The story then introduced us with a passionate mentor and a likable innocent love interest that will act as the pivot of the love triangle between our hero and hard ass shonen hero’s rival. Not only that, it also introduced a mysterious bishonen rival that seems to be related to our hero’s dark past. It’s build up as a competitive adventure that will teach us valuable lessons on bonding and friendship through the sport of mountain climbing.

And……….. all of those got thrown away after the first few volumes. Our hard ass shonen hero’s rival became a con man and a worthless adult throughout the comic. The passionate mentor got a rock in his face and died. The love interest became a prostitute that stole our hero’s money because she is a bitch. Mysterious bishonen rival only appeared in 2 chapters and shown to be dead in the K2 mountain by the end. Our hero learned that he really enjoyed the solitude after all his buddies died during a dangerous expedition. Every time he tries to play the friendship game, it will hinder him and the only way he felt at home is by going solo without any friendship and bonding bullshit to bog him down. Most of the time when he meet new characters, they are awful human beings that are selfish little piece of shit that hinder his mountain climbing ambition.


If there’s a deconstruction of shonen manga, Kokou no Hito is the one. It’s an anti thesis of shonen sport manga. What you normally think that will build up as a hot blooded shonen plot, it will then subvert the shit out of it and tell you that this shit will never fly in real life.

In the end, the manga is not really about mountain climbing but a psychological analysis and character study of Mori/Kato Buntarou . It’s all about how an outcast with no other desire than mountain climbing live and feel. All the other side characters(that got thrown away like garbage) and mountain climbing stuff are tools to develop Buntarou as a character . You get lots of interesting metaphorical imagery to describe Buntarou as a human being.

Buntarou is an interesting characters and his story gave you a interesting perspective of a different lifestyle of solitude without condemning or approving that lifestyle . Normally, stories will tell you that bond is good while solitude is bad and even though Kokou no Hito does slightly adhere to that moral near end, it also says that solitude isn’t really that bad and bonding might not be that amazing either. In the end, you need a bit of both, be considerate to people around you while still living your life aloof.
