Kickstarter Nazism:

Nazism is like Kickstarter.  You start with the cheapest and most basic version of a product, and if it receives more support, it's embellished with further rewards.  The kickstarter succeeds if the initial request is met -- everything after that is stretch goals.  The more stretch goals that are met, the more awesome the project becomes.  So here's what I'm talking about in Kickstarter terms:

"Item:  unified, concerted action of serious Nazis who mean serious business."

"100 Nazis -- found our own town in a remote corner of the USA and raise our commingled children the Nazi way."

"1,000 Nazis -- found our own seasteading in international waters and make laws the Nazi way."

"10,000 Nazis -- our seasteading becomes a country with at least one nuclear weapon capable of defending our way of life, the Nazi way of life."

"100,000 Nazis -- never mind about a sea-steading, just take Montana via secession, (keep the nuclear capacity part though)."

"300,000 Nazis -- conquer Mozambique with fire and blood, drive the natives out and start the 4th Reich, the Nazi way, all the way.  (keep the nuclear capacity part so no one can intervene)"

"1,000,000 Nazis -- forget about Mozambique, or anywhere on Earth, and settle Proxima Centauri instead.  Say goodbye to all the woes that bad genes and bad cultures have created ever since 1945.  We need never dwell upon them, or among them, again.  (Warning, most Nazis will only be able to donate fertilized eggs to this trip, alongside all of their money to make this new Noah's Arc, or shall we call it Hitler's Arc, possible.)"

"30,000,000 Nazis -- never mind about Proxima Centauri, rise up on the night of the long knives and like the Rwandans machete all our enemies in our midst, becoming the United States of Nazi America.  Comes with enslavement of hot women and genocide of everyone who ever annoyed you."

"100,000,000 Nazis -- conquer (and purge) the world and ensure a future of Nazism for all time.  The long promised thousand year Reich begins today.  (As a bonus, everyone gets a copy of Mein Kampf, a Nazi flag, a swastika armband, and a giant statue of Hitler will stand in front of the new capital building which exactly follows the blueprints of Hitler's designs back when the original Reich had it planned.)

"1,000,000,000 Nazis -- be the first to board the new colonization starships towards the creation of our new intergalactic Nazi empire, complete with fashionable futuristic looking sweaters and blond smiling wife and kids.  Eugenically enhanced bodies and minds are essential for the enjoyment of the limitless wealth at our fingertips and the boundless joy of creation that stretches ever outwards as far as our light drives can see.  (As a bonus, you never have to listen to a liberal lie again.)"

"1,000,000,000,000 Nazis -- advanced Artificial Intelligence will now pretend to be smarmy liberals and mouth annoying lies and obviously irrational arguments, just so that you can smash them with hammers into a pulp and enjoy the same delights as your long ago ancestors did on Earth.  Virtual Reality renders all human problems moot, introducing new and more interesting problems in their stead, like how to beat the latest boss.  Artificial bodies and endless backups completely solve the issues of poor health, pain and death.  Suspend your consciousness for limitless amounts of time, pretending to grow up as someone else somewhere else somewhen else instead, until you are ready to cut off the simulated timeline and rejoin the information you learned with what you have already experienced before; gather all experiences and be all things that have ever lived.  As an omnipotent and omniscient being, make Nature your plaything, engage with foreign intellects around you in lively company and harmony or keep to yourself and cultivate your own Earthly garden of AI dolls who act as you wish people always had.  Reign as the God you always wished the silly fantasies said about them were true.  Remodel your very brain into a completely different organism with different wants and goals, the ones you really wanted and no genes programmed into you.  Or in other words, do as thou wilt is the whole of the law."

Call now for a special price of just our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor!

Liberals Have Made it Clear, No Compromise is Possible:

Sensible, common sense people, who look at obvious problems and come to obvious conclusions, like preventing at least the preventable incidents of Muslim terrorism by stopping the inflow of further Muslim immigration so long as they display as a group an obvious predilection for a disproportionate amount of terror attacks, have been stripped of their power to enact these obvious solutions by paranoid, mindless, and totalitarian liberals who insist that everyone must play by their rules over every single issue on Earth.

According to liberals, discriminating against any group in any way for any reason is exactly equivalent to rounding up and killing every non-cis-straight-white-male in the country, and therefore is equally morally objectionable and deserving of equally shrill rhetoric. 

If you want school prayer, you've committed genocide.

If you think people should speak English in America, you've committed genocide.

If you think having thousands of 'lovers' is nothing to be proud about, you've committed genocide.

If you don't think Allah is Akbar, you've committed genocide.

If you think no amount of surgery can ever make a man look like a woman, you've committed genocide.

If you think Christ is the Redeemer, you've committed genocide.

If you give birth to your own children instead of adopt needy ones from Africa, you've committed genocide.

If you give an inheritance to your children instead of donate it to charity, you've committed genocide.

If you date someone of your own race a disproportionate number of times, you've committed genocide.

If you eat meat, you've committed genocide.

If you honor your ancestors, you've committed genocide.

If you honor the Founding Fathers, you've committed genocide.

If you honor our war heroes, you've committed genocide.

If you honor the flag, the anthem, the pledge of allegiance, or anything at all, you've committed genocide.

If you're opposed to open marriage, you've committed genocide.

If you don't think white characters in their source works should be played by non-white actors, you've committed genocide.

If you think classical music is better than rap, you've committed genocide.

If you award an Oscar, Emmy, Nobel, Fields Medal, or any other distinction to a disproportionate number of white men, you've committed genocide.

If you report basic scientific facts like racial IQ scores, twin studies, skull sizes or the Minnesota trans-racial adoption study, you've committed genocide.

If you report basic scientific facts like lifetime earnings of average Mexican immigrants and their descendants vs. taxpayer expenses, you've committed genocide.

If you report basic scientific facts like gay STD rates and pedophile rates, you've committed genocide.

If you report basic scientific facts like men being more physically fit than women, you've committed genocide.

If you report basic scientific facts like the causal connection between IQ, education, income, marital and lifetime success, you've committed genocide.

If you report that IQ is hereditary, you've committed genocide.

If you fail to recognize all the hidden, institutional and systematic oppression all non-cis-straight-white-males are experiencing, you've committed genocide.

If you dress up in an offensive costume, you've committed genocide.

If you fail to check your privilege, you've committed genocide.

If you don't welcome becoming a helpless minority in your own homeland, you've committed genocide.

If you hire people on the basis of who can do the job, you've committed genocide.

If you rent to people who actually pay on time and don't trash the place, you've committed genocide.

If you don't hire and rent to ex-felons, you've committed genocide.

If you don't build new affordable housing smack dab in the middle of a posh district that used to have nice things, you've committed genocide.

If you don't want your children to be bullied in school, you've committed genocide.

If you're tired of being mugged, assaulted, or raped, you've committed genocide.

There is no compromising with these people.  They've lumped all legitimate concerns and scientifically supported facts in with gas chambers, and the moment you say anything about anyone, condemn any behavior, or pretty much stop kowtowing to your 'betters' in any way, shape, or form, you're the next Hitler.  You're noxious.  You're vile.  You're an excrescence.  You're insane.  You're stupid.  You're ignorant.  You're deplorable.  You're irredeemable.  You're un-American.  You're 'not who we are.'  You're inbred.  You're bitter.  You're a loser.  You're trash.  You're backwards.  You're in the ash heap of human history.  You're contemptible.  You're a Nazi who wants to gas six million Jews.

Even when the vast majority of Americans support your policy or beliefs in surveys, you're the 'extreme right,' the 'radical fringe,' and you never believe or say anything, all you can ever do is 'howl,' 'spew,' or 'rant' your words.

When the other party in a debate won't even acknowledge that you are a human being forming words with your mouth, rather than hissing out mad lunatic ravings, there is no compromise possible any longer.

Donald Trump is a social liberal and an economic centrist.  He's offered more olive branches out to women, gays, transgenders, and blacks than any other Republican candidate has in history.  Half his children are married to Jews and over half of his grandchildren are Jews.  If all of this outreach, all of these compromises, all of these good faith gestures, is met with wall to wall venom and calumny, if serious newspapers still write serious 'predictions' ( about Trump rounding up Jews and gassing them to death once he's been elected to their readership, then it's clear as day that as far as liberals are concerned, the entire Republican party is illegitimate and any beliefs to the right of their own 'current year' are verboten.  If they had their way, like with Mao and Stalin, all the ideological criminals who still harbor 'hatred' in their hearts would be sent to re-education camps or, if deemed too far gone, liquidated for the sake of the 'oppressed.'  (the new, American version of the 'proletariat.')

It is already dangerous for your life and your property to be a public supporter of Trump, the mainstream candidate, the Republican Party nominee, who is going to win at least 40% of the vote of the country.  You will be physically assaulted and possibly killed if you support this man in the wrong place, near the wrong people.  If your car has a bumper sticker praising Trump or is parked near a Trump rally, you can kiss it goodbye.  This is a candidate that nearly half the people in America want as President, but if you say anything out loud you can kiss your job goodbye.  If you simply write down with chalk 'Trump 2016' at a college campus, you will be convicted of a hate crime.

If this is how they treat moderates, if this is how they feel about half the people in the country, you may as well go the full hog anyway.  It's the same no matter what you do, you'll be accused of attempted genocide no matter how far left you go, so long as you are not yourself a liberal, so why not at least get the benefits out of it and just actually support the policy?  If you're going to serve the time, you may as well do the crime.  You may have started this journey of resistance as just a guy who didn't want to be preached to by women who did not make the video game, did not buy the video game, and did not play the video game that your video game about saving a princess from a castle should be banned because it reinforces negative stereotypes about women, but since you're in the same basket of deplorables anyway, why not enjoy the full perks and hang all the liberals off lamp posts after all?  People who cannot be reasoned with, who will not accept any form of co-existence with non-liberals, who refuse to compromise over any little thing, can only be smashed once and for all.  They are no different from the Huns.  When Attila was asked where his invasions would end, he said 'when someone stops me.'  Likewise, liberals have no intention of letting any thought criminals go until the whole world has been made into a universal enforcer of 'human rights,' which means chasing down and castrating the last white man on Earth.  They are insatiable.  They will stop at nothing.  They do not fear you, instead they despise you, and when they imagine our future together, it's their boots stomping on our human faces, forever.

They are merciless, and they laugh at and scorn all of our attempts towards a peaceful redress of grievances.  So why be mealy-mouthed about it any longer?  What has it ever gained us to be the one and only moderate, understanding and reasonable person in the room?  Did Attila have any argument other than 'woe to the conquered' and a sword slammed down in front of our faces?  Do you think the liberals will listen to anything we have to say after sixty years of continuous victories towards their left-wing utopia?

If just 1 in 10 Americans, including 1 in 10 soldiers on army bases, agreed together that on a certain day, they would all don a red ski mask, and then go outside at 4am and kill any of their neighbors not wearing a red ski mask, America could be liberated and purified in a single night.  Afterwards, an ideal society could be instituted free of all the scum who've polluted what should have been a golden century of scientific progress and material prosperity.  ((If not enough women are in this group, we could always spare the prettiest ones as sex slaves like ISIS does trading them around freely, they won't be very scary and no one will listen to their bitch mouths run anymore once they don't have the police and the military to boss around any longer))  In addition, the traffic will be amazingly non-congested, everyone will get to live in a posh house of their own choosing (newly made available and fully furnished), and there will be more job openings in high paying fields than we could shake a stick at.

At least 4 in 10 Americans are willing to vote for Trump, which means if they all just radicalized and act like liberals insist on treating them as anyway, that day could be tomorrow.  It is not liberals that are the bottleneck to a decent future, it's all the mealy mouthed cucks who offer limp wristed, half hearted opposition to the liberals despite being spat upon, egged, and put in baskets just as though they had recently emerged from a gas chamber.

If we were half as conservative as liberals are liberal, all our problems would have been solved ages ago.  If we were half as fervent, half as passionate, half as principled as liberals, the clock would already have been reset to 1860.  If white males ever unified, even just 10% of them, they could run over all opposition that's left on Earth without breaking a sweat.  We wouldn't just have conquered the world by now (like we have before!), we would have conquered the solar system.

So ask yourself, when you're debating whether you should stand up for the right to make and sell video games, but are quick to condemn the people who don't want their daughters changing in locker rooms next to self-proclaimed 'women' who have made no surgical adaptions to their genitalia, what hope do you have in this world?  In this future?  Do you really think liberals will ever stop at anything?  So why are you stopping and holding yourself back over every little thing?

Isn't it about time to embrace your inner Nazi?  A tiny group of Nazis could save the whole world.  A billion 'conservatives' can't conserve a God damned thing.

'The best lack all conviction,
while the worst are full of passionate intensity.'

Don't be this poem.

Take the fucking red pill already. 

I Voted Trump Today:

I have now done my part.  It's not my fault if this country becomes a flaming ruin, I voted to save it.  I wash my hands of everything that occurs from here on out.

Schwarzesmarken, Girlish Number and Shuumatsu no Izetta Promoted to Great Anime Rankings:

The day has come.  The latest episodes of Girlish Number and Shuumatsu no Izetta both knocked it out of the park.  At this point it's pretty pointless resisting the fact that these two series, once they've fully flowered over the course of all twelve episodes, are going to be great anime worthy of my rankings.

However, even though I knew these shows were great, I couldn't help but feel they were still worse than Schwarzesmarken, which by inference means Schwarzesmarken must also be a great anime.  As a result, it too was promoted to my great anime rankings, or else the other two never would've been able to get in.

The three shows couldn't be more diverse, spanning three different worlds, genres, and themes.  But they all share the qualities of excellence.  They have something meaningful to say, their art is gorgeous, the plot holds together and the characters are reasonable, understandable and relevant to our own hopes and dreams, troubles and fears, strengths and weaknesses.  Even better, all three seem to be complete-in-themselves shows that will be over in just one cour.  No lasting regrets for these shows, you get the full catharsis.

I feel for Schwarzesmarken in particular, it boldly treads into an intellectual space that most other media has avoided, the evils of communism.  It's certainly the only anime that tackles the subject.  This is an important message that needs to get out.  There's been too much whitewashing of communism, especially in the western press, and this series serves as a valuable counterweight to that.  I am not talking about the theoretical ideology, which Ayn Rand does a great job lampooning in Atlas Shrugged, I'm talking about the real lived experience, the historical reality of just what communism was in this world, which We the Living expressed well, but few Americans have ever read.  This anime may be an easier to digest lesson on just how bad things were than weighty tomes like Solzenitsyn's.

The reason I love Shuumatsu is similar to my fondness for Kotetsujou no Kabaneri.  Or as we like to call it stateside, Choo Choo Train no Trans-corpse.  The art and animation are just so beautiful, it's obvious the budget for this series is stratospheric.  It's a joy just watching the show even it were on mute and you had no idea what was going on.  Then you put in relatable characters with heroic ideals and have them fight for each other, and suddenly your heart is melting and racing for them throughout their rip roaring adventure.  It may be an easy formula, it may have been done many times before, but that doesn't make it a bad one.  It's done so often because it works so well.

Girlish Number is similar to Sore ga Seiyuu, but has noticeable differences.  Sore ga Seiyuu liked to concentrate a lot on the process, nitty-gritty industry details, and used the characters more often as the butt of jokes than as real people.  They were tour guides useful in meeting industry figures and going behind the scenes, not people in themselves.  Girlish Number focuses more on the characters, and makes them more realistic and fleshed out as a result (even the art style is much more realistic).  There's a lot more nastiness and flinty edges to these girls, which is what you'd expect.  Girls love to barb people verbally (or just inside their own heads) and put each other down, it's like breathing to them, and there's nothing wrong with that.  Girls having standards is what keeps the gene pool clean.  Sore ga Seiyuu looks like some planet the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man has conquered, everyone is altogether way too nice.

That being said, just because I know these three shows are great series, it's still impossible to determine how great they are.  I have yet to rewatch Schwarzesmarken (it's not fully out yet in blu-ray), and I obviously misjudged it the first time by not ranking it in the first place.  The other two shows haven't even fully aired yet.  As such, for now the three shows will just be conveniently placed as 184, 185 and 186 in my rankings.  Once more information flows in, maybe they'll move up a little bit higher, but for now just reaching the rankings is fine.

With three new shows reaching my rankings, all of which originated in 2016, this year in anime has officially surpassed last year, with 43 great franchises providing new content, compared to 2015's 41.  There's still more to come, too, like Kin-iro Mosaic's new oav.  2016 is just plain dominating.  There may come a year where anime fails, where good shows flee and boredom sets in over the world, but it is not this year.

Meanwhile, 2017 is looking to be great too.  Yuuki Yuuna wa Yuusha de Aru is getting a second season, half of which is a prequel covering the light novel (Washio Sumi, which I've already read, and am happy to see upgraded to an anime rendition), and the other half a sequel covering what happens next in this post-apocalyptic, seemingly hopeless world.  Just because the girls were healed doesn't mean the threat in outer space has ended, and somebody has to take up that burden if the world is to stay protected.  I'm curious to know what possible solution they have in store.  My ranking of Yuuki Yuuna has been gravitating upwards for a long time, so getting this second season doesn't mean I'll rank it any higher than before.  This will simply justify how high it got in my rankings in the first place, it's pretty convenient that way.

Full Metal Panic! Resumes Fall 2017:

We finally have an air date for 'Full Metal Panic! IV,' which will be a sequel picking up from where we left off ten years ago.  Fall 2017.

There's currently doubt surrounding whether Dancing Very Merry Christmas will be adapted or not, which is a crying shame, cuz it was a great book in the series.  But whatever.  Any FMP is good FMP.

It's also doubtful whether this new season can really cover the rest of the series (even if it's 2-cour.)  We'll have to wait and see how things develop there as well.  But any FMP is good FMP.

Xebec isn't exactly a great anime studio, and certainly a huge step down from the previous group, Kyoto Animation.  But any FMP is good FMP.

With Full Metal Panic and Ero Manga Sensei slated for 2017, we're looking forward to a good upcoming year in anime, no matter what else happens.

Even if Hillary becomes president and makes a mockery of both the historical grand proud lineage of USA presidents as well as universal suffrage as a concept, Full Metal Panic will still be there for us, and isn't that all we ever needed?

There's also upcoming new works being animated in 2017 which are by the previous makers of Seitokai no Ichizon and Record of Lodoss War.  Having a previous hit doesn't mean your next work will also be a hit, but it does leave at least some room for hope.

Konosuba Season 2 starts winter 2017, in addition to Rewrite and Naruto, but overall it's looking like a bland start to the new year.  The real fun starts in the spring of 2017, with Kyoukai no Rinne, Ero Manga Sensei, Fate/extra, Berserk, Attack on Titan, and who knows what else.  In any case, 2017 is guaranteed to be another bright light in anime.  With all this heavy artillery being used to keep 2017 afloat, it's a little worrisome what will be left for 2018 though.

Meanwhile, Isis Orb is available for reading.  It's good to see Isis referring to the Egyptian Goddess again.

Stella no Mahou Dropped:

There's nothing really offensive about this series (though the granny threatening her guests with a knife was going too far even as a joke), but there's nothing that sets it apart either.  The characters seem boring and lifeless compared to New Game, which does everything Stella does but infinitely better.  They don't seem to have any true 'character' to them at all.  They're just the 'writer,' the 'musician,' the 'leader,' and the 'artist.'  There's nothing that really sets them apart, like the wonderful goddess in Konosekai, or the mage who only casts explosion magic.  It's possible to have someone be a 'job class' and still retain their individuality and charm points.  Bakuman was fantastic at this.  Stella no Mahou just doesn't know how to do it.

Its humor is lifeless compared to New Game.  The girls aren't cute enough for the bath scenes to do anything.  Everything is lacking.  I think the biggest issue is that the writing is lacking.  Who cares if four girls want to get together and create a crappy game no one will play or care about?  If a tree falls in a forest, does anyone care?

They've never given me any reason to care about anything that happens in this show.  It's like watching paint dry.  If I want to watch cute girls do cute things, shouldn't I be watching adrenaline pumping Girls und Panzer or Brave Witches, where they do that while fighting with freaking heavy machinery and putting their lives on the line?  What does Stella no Mahou have that isn't redundant and made obsolete by other shows that are all strictly superior to it?  I can't think of anything.  This feels like such a cookie cutter series.  No imagination, no individuality, no theme.  I don't have time for mediocrities that can't establish anything likable about themselves individually in even three episodes.  Maybe someday Idol Memories will come out subbed.  Until then my watchlist is narrowed down to just 9 shows.  (7 of which are part of long running great franchises, 2 of which may well be great anime themselves, but at the very least are definitely good series I'll watch to the end.)

Girlish Number and Shuumetsu no Izetta are more than enough to justify the fall anime season.  Like how one season only had Sakura Trick and Mikakunin de Shinkoukei.  Any season that can produce two great new shows is worthwhile.  Nonetheless, I'll be looking forward to Naruto's return, and so many other things, come winter 2017.

Shakunetsu no Takyuu Dropped:

I actually like the ping pong playing and the characterization that goes into this show, but there's so much discordant fan service where it doesn't naturally belong, it breaks immersion and makes you actually feel perverted for watching this show.  In the middle of a fierce volley these girls have the time to clutch their bodies and blush fiercely like they're having orgasms.  I mean, pick one category, is this a sports show or a hentai?

Also the girl who refers to her teammates by the color of their panties in the middle of a school environment is outrageous and unrealistic.  It just gets to be a lechery overload.  The same amount of ecchi can be depicted in a completely inoffensive way if the author had even bothered to make the situations and scenes realistic, but he/she just forced them in without a second thought instead.  It's just too brutish and lazy for a fan to take.

Meanwhile, Mahoutskai Precure is back due to some kind anon subtitlers.  Mahoutskai Precure is still the worst Precure ever, but that's still better than most shows anyway.

Meanwhile, the Big 12 foolishly chose not to expand to its proper number of 12 teams.  It's going to stay at 10 teams, even though there's already a Big 10 conference (which has 14 teams.)

Meanwhile, I finished reading Harmonia.  It's the worst Key visual novel I've read, but that's still pretty good compared to other companies.  Shiona sure is pretty.
