Hello. I want some anime that have people attempting to outsmart each other as a major part of the show. I already watched Death Note, Code Geass, Hyouka, Classroom of the Elite, Kaiji, Akagi, No Game No Life (some of it was nonsense, but some of it was really impressive), The Promised Neverland, Legend of the Galactic Heroes (I am mentioning this one even though it wasn't mainly focused on mind games so nobody suggests it anyway), One Outs, Talentless Nana, Kakegurui and Zankyou no Terror (it focused on mind games at the start). Please tell me of more mind game anime.

I started reading Spiral: The Bonds Of Reasoning manga and am quite enjoying it. I read up to and excluding chapter 22; which was adapted to the anime with some minor changes.

I finished Spiral: The Bonds Of Reasoning manga around a week ago and found it quite good. I am watching Summertime Rendering, I watched up to and including episode 11; there are not as many clever schemes as Sagrada Reset during that time but information crucial to the plot and starting a cat and mouse game was dropped so I will continue watching.

I heard that World Trigger has very strategic fights, so I intend to watch it; can anybody confirm or deny the strategic fighting? I will watch Gods' Games We Play (as I wrote in >>9030 ) when it is finished airing, so I haven't seen any of it and so can't comment on it.

Now that the dust has settled, this show was pretty redpilled on real US government conspiracies. I can't quite decide on a burning question though. Was the exposure of these conspiracies by a popular television show a thorn in the side of spook agencies like the CIA, or was it more likely to be a continuation of Project Mockingbird (referenced in the show btw) discrediting conspiracy theories via association with fantastical fiction?

Is Chris Carter a friend or foe?

While Rush Hour is a beloved but old film franchise enjoyed by many in the world, Chris Tucker did get listed on Epstein's flight log or whatever. Kinda disappointing. He's not even that influential, like why? (insert gif: "We were all rooting for you!"

One school of thought says that fictional stories would create plausible deniability for similar hidden projects. However another school of thought says that it would popularize conceptual awareness and make it more likely for people to pick up on a actually existing patterns in the real world.

I guess it depends on priorities:
1- people know about it, but think it's not real, in that case the goal is to discredit people who speak out, and attributing their claims to a popular TV show probably works.
2- people don't know about it and it's a secret, in that case the goal is to avoid spreading any information about it.

The easiest way for average Joe to figure out about secret projects is to learn a language of a foreign country that has reason to spy on such things, and just read what's being written in foreign specialty publications. Other governments intelligence usually de-cloak top-secret stuff pretty quickly.

It's a lot better than i expected. The audio quality sounds, lets say, cost-optimized. But the musical aspects are nice, albeit somewhat generic. 2 years ago music-generators like this sounded like angry monkeys rampaging through a instrument shop. The progression is very impressive. This does not produce non-musical noises. If you don't concentrate and specifically listen for minute AI-artifacts, you probably wouldn't notice.

You need an account from Disc_rd, Goo_le or Micr_Soft to create with it, which is a bit of a bummer.

Some of the relevant legislation is unofficially refered to as the Mickey Mouse act.

I don't know much about the politics involved in the DMCA.

Whoever has been posting about this show, thanks but also fuck you. Why'd they have to cancel this show? It was fun and thrilling and sometimes surprisingly deep and charming/endearing. Summer Glau's character is one of the most fascinating and perfect fictional characters I've ever known. Sometimes I wish Terminator was real because of her even though it might mean the end of humanity.. *laments*

>Why'd they have to cancel this show? It was fun and thrilling and sometimes surprisingly deep and charming/endearing.
In order for this to change, people need to start crowdfunding shows, then nobody can cancel it. But before that's possible we need something like open source creative franchises.

>Sometimes I wish Terminator was real because of her even though it might mean the end of humanity

Not really, the terminator AI is too stupid to win against humanity. It got a time-machine and all it does is send assassin-bots into the past ? Seriously ?
To win it just had to advance its technology, then send that advancement to it's past-self, repeat that step a million times until it's so advanced nothing can touch it.

Well the US HBO version is based off an Israeli TV show. Also just found out the original creator is taking Israel's side and running with the narrative of Israel good and rational, Hamas bad terrorists. He's also a producer of the HBO version, so I'm wondering of people are gonna cancel it.

Nearly every movie and TV show from Hollywood has zionists in the cast and crew, and likely a zionist director and producers too. They also obviously support many other kinds of imperialism and fascism on top of that.

Post any old media that couldn't be shown today. It's strange to me that people think of today's media environment has been so permissive when in the past there were far more edgy things being regularly distributed without any attention being given to it.

I'll go first. Nickelodeon, "you can't do that on television". I've never seen another show depict parents and adults in such a irredeemably negative cynical matter.
And it was in a very real and raw manner. The parents would openly state they hated their children, the arcade operator would constantly try to rip off his underage patron. The burger shack cook was depicted wearing a filthy, sunken in eyes, and and a 5 o'clock shadow. His restaurant was always infested with roaches.
There were ZERO adults or figures of authority that were trustworthy. Giving children the clear message that yes, they really are out to get you. A lot of shows in the 90's would claim to be deeply cynical, but this one was genuinely subversive.
I don't think you could make a show like this today that flat out says children should never trust adults, not even their parents. I've never seen a children's show like this again

In the 80's and early 90's in the UK the Wheetabix breakfast cereal mascots were a gang of skinheads.
It's been debated the skinhead look didn't have the same connotations as it did back then but I don't believe it since they changed their outfits to normal clothing toward the very end of their decade long advertising run. There's like a dozen separate commercials of them that aired.

"Max Headroom", this was an unrelentingly scathing critique of television at the time. Even at the time people were shocked by how critical Max could be. One reviewer even joked that Max could be canceled because "it bites the hand that feeds it."
The ridiculously slick and Aryan appearance of Max is even satirical. Made to mock the immaculately handsome and groomed news anchors that the public was forming parasocial relationships at the time.
It's oddly prescient too. It predicted the privatization of "Sesame Street", the use of AI to "resurrect" dead family members, the 24/7 surveillance of people through media devices (the television also records the viewer while they watch. Something the public isn't aware of).
The TV execs are depicted as heartless, and perfectly aware that the publics addiction to TV makes their broadcasts effectively mind control.
The list goes on as to all the aspects of society Max Headroom lampooned. Again its at a level I've never seen again. Even the GTA series at its most biting doesn't come close.
