Can someone explain the appeal behind tsunderes and dominant women? I don't understand the appeal.
47 replies and 12 images omitted. Click here to view.
Some people may prefer being submissive since it involves less thought, and less thought often involves more pleasure. Otherwise and in more extreme cases of badmouthing and BDSM shit, it's an extension of a far more general fetish for the taboo.

Tons of fetishes are generated from this same collective pool because people find uncommon and unfamiliar sensations to be sexy oftentimes. It can go anywhere from experimenting with the same gender to BDSM shit to anything /d/-tier like fatties and vore and scat and stuff. It's just a matter of how much you're individually able to associate something with sex as opposed to how it may affect your usual biological functions. Like, watersports and pegging are fucking disgusting taking an objective look at what they do to the body, but many can look past that in pursuit of ecstasy.

The desire to be dominated by a woman is a reaction to the archetypal association of men with dominance and women with submission thanks to the good ol' stick in the hole metaphor. It feels wrong, so it feels very, very right if you let it. If you have any fetishes of your own and trace their history, I imagine the root cause is something very similar. Of course, it's not particularly uncommon to not have any fetish at all, in which case I both pity and envy you for different reasons.
>all this pseudoscience and "hurr they're just lazy/stupid/etc."
It's just hot, okay? Not every fetish has some deep seated psychological origin.
Femdom is only appealing when it's paired with /ss/ or a role reversal halfway through like in Asanagi's Kashima doujin.
Making them switch in bed is the greatest.

is this OC?
Remembering the context it was made for still makes me kek
looks directly copied from Kubo's artwork

>They made the OC case about a train
>It's a fucking trainwreck


Here's a couple of simple ideas how to fix it:
>When Detective Gumshoe enters Maya and Phoenix's compartment, he finds Maya riding on top of Phoenix as he's about to bust a nut inside her
>When they take over the train, they shoot all the NPCs
>When the redhead falls and accidentally triggers her SMG fire, Gumshoe gets shot through the heart (and she's to blame) and she accidentally blows her brains out from the recoil

I didn't know about this, thanks.
It's the same source from where the HQ pages that are sometimes posted on threads comes from.
No problem. You can find a lot of their versions of the translations readnanatsutaizai if you don't want to pay, that site tends to replace the early translations with the Kodansha version when they come out. They're kind of interesting to compare with RedHawk and MS. Also you get the chapter covers and final pages without the editor's text over them.
Their character arcs are over now so Nakaba is preparing them to give birth to Lancelot. The knights of the round table are glorious humans instead of weird abominations so Lancelot will have very few fairy or undead qualities while Tristan's heritage will balance out and result in a normal human.

There's so much build up to the Tournament of Power. The recruiting, the strategizing, even before it's declared there's the training. The heroes throw so much into preparation. Then they get to the tournament. They use so much strategy, put in so much effort, score so many wins.

But none of it matters. And we know it doesn't matter. We're told this pretty early on. Because there's this guy, Jiren, and he's stronger than the Gods of Destruction. No matter what you do, no matter how much you strategize, how much you gang up on him, how far everybody pushes past their limits, Jiren is just so impossibly ridiculously powerful that nothing matters.

Let me repeat that. Jiren is so impossibly ridiculously powerful that nothing matters. You're not beating this guy. There's no point in even trying. The usual tropes do not apply to Jiren. There's no figuring him out, there's no pushing to a new level. You do all of that, he's still way above you.

The only way to challenge him is a Deus Ex Machina. Except no; it's powerless against him. So more happen. But when it looks like you've actually managed to make him sweat, he just unleashes more power and beats you down. Nothing works. In the end it takes the protagonists almost literally KILLING THEMSELVES (while Jiren is trying very hard to spare them) from the sheer strain induced on their puny bodies trying to keep up with Jiren for just a FEW MINUTES to do ANYTHING to him.

All that just to weaken him down to a level where they have one shot at pushing him out of a ring. Even this last-ditch effort of last-ditch efforts is entirely predicated on, one, knocking out Goku, Vegeta, and Freeza just to move Jiren a few feet, and two, hiding 17 in the rubble and hoping like hell that Jiren doesn't target him. Because if Jiren finds him, or if he's able to avoid their last shot, it's over. For the first time these proud warriors can only win by HIDING from the antagonist.

We will likely never see such an OP antagonist ever again.

Why won't people understand Tsukihi's charm?
She sings the world known best OP Platinum mad, she only wear yukatas (topcute) she is genki, she is a bird (birds are very important), fourteen (14)
It’s just insecurity anon, that’s a pretty common feeling
Do people actually not like bird or is it just shitposting?
I actually think she shares a #1 best girl spot with monkey.
I don't like Bird, at best she's a non-character who's entire existence is to be hysterical.
Worst case scenario she's an actively annoying character who contributes nothing significant to the plot.
Yozuru case scenario: Tsukihi Araragi doesn't exist and the monster you're considering Best Girl is actually a pathetic monster, being a parasite off of a human being that has deceived the family of the people it took over into taking care of it.
Only surviving to this day because the "brother" of the monster managed to convince Yozuru that he could ensure the monster never hurts anyone else.

No one wants that anon. Doesn't help that marumaru died and mangashow doesn't have any chapters. Your best bet at getting actual translations in a timely manner would be to contact one of those 3 people on mangadex who put out chapters daily. Other than that I don't think there are any groups who would pick it up.

It's completely arbitrary though. Japanese already provides dozens of different ways characters talk in manga or anime, with unique choices of pronouns, verb conjugations, sentence ending particles, and ten times as many levels of politeness and directionality that they're incapable of translating because no equivalent exists in english. So they go out of their way to overdo the one obvious "from another part of the country" accent to make up for it. It's just obnoxious.

>It's completely arbitrary though.
No, it's not. You can say/type that all you like, but the fact remains against you. I can say the Moon is arbitrary, too.

>Japanese already provides dozens of different ways characters talk in manga or anime, with unique choices of pronouns, verb conjugations, sentence ending particles, and ten times as many levels of politeness and directionality...
You are 100% correct. As with ANY language on the planet, you can express meaning in so many different ways; written, audible, dialectical and otherwise. ALL of it 100% identifiable as soon as a native speaker (and even some foreign speakers) would hear/read it. I'll continue this point in a moment...

>...that they're incapable of translating because no equivalent exists in english.
No, that is not true! You cannot tell me "slang" exists in Japanese but does not exist in English! If a Japanese character in a manga uses a slang form of speech, then the proper translation of that same character and that same piece of dialogue is to USE ENGLISH SLANG. You cannot equate the delivery of "formal" and "casual" and expect the tone or expression to be related properly! The DIFFICULTY lies not in deciding "do I use slang/dialect or not" it's "HOW do I use WHAT slang/dialect." If the dialect and slang and tone and everything in the conversation indicates the speaker is any number of different elements (elite/plebeian, sheltered/free-spirited, wise/foolish, lazy/OCD, New York/Californian, Kansai/Kyoto) then it SHOULD be translated to equivalent meaning.

>So they go out of their way to overdo the one obvious "from another part of the country" accent to make up for it. It's just obnoxious.
While I don't fully agree, I will admit that POOR translations that over-exaggerate or poorly select its written product does absolutely exist. You are correct, reading a bad translation is "just obnoxious," but, it is not frivolous or meaningless. It's just a bad TL. Which also becomes opinion.
Just because translating language quirks is impossible in some cases, doesn't mean it should never be done. IMO, translating the intent of those quirks is almost always possible, but it's harder than just giving a character a southern accent.
No, the other anons are right. It's not bad to translate that like that, it's just harder to do it better. I mean, go figure that high-school kids barely educated and experienced enough to know their own language are rushing as fast as possible to make unpaid translations of some volume of a manga and it's not as good as the paid professional to a govt. official who has 27 years of direct experience.
It's more about difficulty, not impossibility. The trick is deciding how to write how Boomhauer talks. Some do it better than others.
