!Pop-Sup : Anime Crimes Division

NGNL Gif 16c.gif

Shh… Shiro don’t rat out on me.
It might be a little surprising that I’m publishing this unidentified post of some unknown nature (And it’s not even a Saturday or Sunday!). Well if you are surprised then perhaps part of my objective has been accomplished – I categorized this as a “Random Surprise” post, which as the name suggests is going to be on something super-random and also either surprisingly-good or surprisingly-bad (depends on how you take it). This new ‘genre‘ is probably going to occur with a frequency of some Poisson distribution, so it will not overtake what I’m normally doing.
The title does sound awfully bait-like – while I like the idea of titles that makes one go “私気になります!”, I try not to adopt bait-ish titles in my postings. However, I can’t change it much because I am literally putting out the subject of comment (not discussion) here:

Finding its way into my youtube subscription feed, Anime Crimes Division is a parody/satire original live-action series produced by RocketJump studios, supported by Crunchyroll (what?).
What’s it about? Basically a comedy/mockery show (at least from what I see in their preview episode above) focusing on the anime community (some stereotypes were burnt here) and the culture which anime has created. In its first 9:28 minute episode, they threw in a chunk of anime memes, aniculture memes, references (all over the place), and also burns (terrible ones).
I should write a little about RocketJump since they are the creators here. Simply put, they are a creative (comedy-centric) visual effects and filming/production studio. The studio quietened significantly (on youtube) after their previous project on some gaming high-school series, and looks like they are trying to work on another one of their ideas once more (and put it on youtube?).

I won’t be making a stand as to whether I am “in favour of” or “against” the idea for such a series (I mean, it is amusing but at the same time it’s not really nice right?). A more relevant argument would be how the anime community would respond to such a series (even if it is a small production – I’m not sure if it is small per se), or rather how would the general non-anime community think about anime and the community derived from it?
Of course, when we talk about an ‘anime community’ or ‘manga community’, there are many diverse kinds of them – ranging from the angelically friendly ones to the toxicating ones. But it is easy for people outside of the community to quickly generalize the category of anime lovers.

So what do you think about the memeification of controversial divides & consequences of aniculture within some anime communities? Kind of curious to know… even though this is wayyy off-tangent (in more than just 3 dimensions) from the content that I’ve seen the rest of you post in this 2+ months in which I think I’ve been gradually transitioning.

I do not own any of the content in the Screen-cap compilation, nor the youtube video.

Living life little by little as I try to understand how life works. As complex as it is, so as I am, it may take a lifetime to understand. But regardless it is not pointless to pursue a near-impossible goal.

"Consider, can the universe be justifiably called infinite? Doubtful. It may not have a discernible end, but it had a beginning and its component parts definitely have a limited cosmological shelf-life. Splitting hairs or not, if history tells us anything, it's that scientists often make very poor poets. We're all just a ship of fools chasing phantoms, heedless of what really underwrites natural law." - Okabe Rintaro
