propagandanime Anonymous 03/30/2017 (Thu) 06:15:44 [Preview] No. 18965 [Reply]
For the last few years there's been quite a lot of propagandanime: series that are set on a premise clearly meant to teach the viewer something valuable about the mundaneity of life. This does not count for shows like NHK Ni Youkoso! that simply tell a story with a redemption arc of NEET or something, that's just a straightforward plot, but when regardless of a plot the premise to set a background for the plot serves as a reminder of the viewpoints of a marginal lifestyle. Examples are Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai that are meant to exemplify the marital bliss to an otaku audience so that people would start fucking again, or Kobayashi-san Chi No Maid Dragon that exemplifies that an allegory for autism is not necessarily entirely unfit to normal society as long as they can be guarantined to a special role.

I don't think art's value is determined by its use as propaganda, and I don't like this modern perception I see floating around that a show is good or bad depending on how well it pushes messages or themes. In that sense I agree with you OP and will gladly fall for your memes.

Thank you for falling for my meme. I don't see it as a bad thing at all, only interesting, and in fact I kinda like it. The shows it produces are by nature pandering and therefore very comfy.

Another meme I've made is garbagime, but because this far I've only made it with Akiba's Strip and Choujigen Game Neptune The Animation, it's hardly deep enough to more than stumble upon a little bit, at best maybe fall knee deep into. It's a meme about having a very specific kind of throwaway humor.

>Honestly, I didn't even expect the board owner to use it, I made it as a joke.
Well BO actually using it made it funnier, even if somewhat frustrating, but yeah, joke's relevancy has ended sometime ago. Whatever I guess, but it does give off a wrong idea about /AM/.

>if banners weren't relevant to the culture of the board, new visitors were less likely to stick around.
Was it really the argument? I seem to recall something different. It wasn't about the relevance itself but quality that results from there being a history to it and if you've been around you can get a feeling when you're dealing with something of cultural significance rather than just an ornament. Might not sound convincing but you really can feel these things up.
The example for whether board was worthwhile was /pol/ here at the time when vast majority of it's banners were display of unironic nazi circlejerking (no idea how is it now and not interested). Someone searching for neutral free-speech discourse can tell straight away he probably won't find what he's looking for there.
But it's not just that. Say you're some sort of anime professor, you look at the cover you're not supposed to judge by, however, you recognize the patters and with a degree of accuracy - depending on your experience and authors' desire to mislead you - you can tell if you'll enjoy it.
There are memes that are so obscure seeing them on a banner won't tell you shit (some might be so obscure even witnessing the meme in action won't be enough to get the banner - I'm looking at you chocolate gun) but there are others that will give you a rough feeling about what happened and why it got immortalized. Now this might be kind of cheating but let's take that 'legit real' banner as an example. It points to a conclusion that the show or at least some aspect of it was enjoyed by considerable group of people to be put on the banner. Now this show is very particular and will give you volumes of information about /AM/, not raw memetic data mind you but a general idea behind it. In some other case the reason for that recognition might be ironic of course however this is something that even if unclear at first should be figured in no time by anyone with barely any experience with imageboards.
Nevertheless the value of cultural relevance is not primarily in it's power to keep newfags around but to give them a hint about the place but more importantly not to mislead them.

This should be enought to show the validity of relevance in banners but if you want me to I can muster a paragraph more about how many things are visible in a banner, even if you're don't know the memem it represents, by comparing it to some famous monument.

>Also, that specific banner is relevant to the board whether you like it or not.
Me and my proxies beg to differ.

Yeah, banners are important to some degree. If someone came in and made a bunch of naruto themed scat banners, I would be a little miffed in the board owner put them up.

I dunno, I understand where your argument comes from but we're arguing over shades of grey really. We both think that there should be some limitation on banners as I would be against a slew of Naruto scat banners. Since nobody is going to go out of their way to actually measure the relation between banners and boards neither of us can actually prove either of our cases though.

I'm not going to argue my case further because of that, I've already had this argument once. Consider that me conceding of you like, but this is just you thinking we should be more cautious and me thinking we don't need to be as cautious. If popular opinion declares that you are right, then so be it.

meh, anyone who dismisses an argument on grammar needs to be shot tbh

That wasn't a dismissal, just me rereading my post and realizing how many fuckups I've made.
Anyway my goal was merely to clarify my position not to argue again. As for the banners themselves so far the popular opinion was to not give a damn. Well then, back to shitposting.
