So if it is a sub-genre then some Japanese cartoons are pornographic.

 

Some, but not all, Girls und Panzer for instance does not come into that category, but something like Strike Witches is borderline.

Certainly not what the argument is about, but modern Japanese cartoons aren't the same as the old that still remain in the top spot of being among the best.

I wouldn't know, I haven't read it. Though I'd have to regard jojo, one-punch man and the ghost in the shell movie as patrician taste and not autistic, the reason for that being I liked them.

I've got the latter (still yet to watch it) but not seen the other 2. Personally though my favourite is Space Battleship Yamato 2199 (the rebooted version).

Which falls into my personal autistic category until such time I happen to watch and like it.

You should watch it, it's a very good example of some of the finest works.

Yes you do, as you take the Japanese meaning of a word and try to apply it to English.

"Anime" in English is no more animations in general than karaoke are empty orchestras.

 

You. Are. Still. Wrong.

I haven't made up my own definitions and Anime means Animation, not Japanese specific animation.

"Angst" has different definitions depending if it's the German or English language, so does "anime" in English and Japanese, yet you erroneously persist in using the Japanese definition for a word in English, and that makes you and not the Oxford dictionary wrong.

Give us the German origin for Angst then, as it really does depend on the origin of the word, and Anime in Japanese will always mean Animation regardless of it's origins, it's not a difficult concept to get round that the English Dictionary can get words wrong.

 

Edit: And if I am correct, the German and English usage are more or less the same, as in German, it is the normal word for fear, where in English:

A feeling of deep anxiety or dread, typically an unfocused one about the human condition or the state of the world in general.

 

Deep Anxiety or Dread are 2 feelings that are commonly associated with fear.

Its a shame as strike witchs and the spin off brave witchs are actually very good. Why the girls fight in there undies makes no sence.

Anywhoo I hope we get these tanks soon, I  Love anime and see no problem with it in WOT as half the tanks are fictional now anyway.

I would suggest the Heavy Tank VI but that is pretty mediocre.
