Just binged this, has some good animation.
>>2196144You really had to, huh.
>>2196162Yup. They spent like half the episode animation budget on that. Can't let it be a waste.
>>2196179Nice shots, I'd love some more! There's some beautiful animation in the final two episodes
>>2196791In a show like this, it's probably a hint that they spent so much time on it. This show isn't interested in doing things for fan service.
>>2196805except it isn't
>>2196805Yeah, I didn't like how they shoehorned that into a couple episodes. Its one thing to have tomboys. But full blown tranny stuff is annoying, especially when it's totally just thrown in to be "woke"t. OP
>>2197045It's not "shoehorned" or "woke", it's called having a plot.
>>2197308anon I'm sorry to tell you, but you will never be a woman
>>2196805The trannyshit was awkward and annoying, but nowhere near as bad as the usual woke crap.
>>2197308any mention of it and people will start crying about shoehorning
>>2197308a good plot at that
At the end of the day, only girls(females) are in those wonder eggs...So at the end of the day it's more of a lol moment than anything.Neiru best grill
>>2196135gonna check this out
>>2197045Alright I'll take the bait, what do gay and trans people characters need to do to justify existing in a story? And for that matter, would I need to justify being gay somehow?
>>2199902Yeah, if you want to live. You're gonna need to give me a good reason to not pull this trigger, poof.
>>2199902I mean I guess you are right, gays and trans fit into wonder egg priority, it does fit the theme of dealing with mental illness.Gay may not be mental illness but the "community" of groomers and insufferable degenerates are not worth cow-towing to. Trans are 100% mentally ill and need to seek professional help (not retards that will prescribe mutilating your genitals). There is a clear reason the suicide rate is so high, the surgery doesn't work, the hormones don't work, forcing the rest of the world to play pretend with you doesn't work. That said I hope the get the help they need.But inserting a tranny or fag into every single piece of new media in not needed. Neon Genesis had gay shit in it and it was fine. It made sense, it wasn't forced.Basically, you get people who don't want to be bothered by woke bullshit 24/7 and watch/play media to relax or get their mind off things. So when you start adding some troon gay shit in media, it immediately comes off as unnecessary and shitty writing to be woke for woke-sake. Just look at TLOU2.
>>2199909I get to occasionally make homophobes annoyed or uncomfortable, so that is fun. There is also my boyfriend, who is pretty great.>>2199952>There is a clear reason the suicide rate is so high, the surgery doesn't work, the hormones don't work, forcing the rest of the world to play pretend with you doesn't work. That said I hope the get the help they need.Surely it is this and not the increased rate of suffering from child abuse, parental abandonment, sexual assault, or being vilified and to feel unwelcome by most conservative politicians. Hell, for that matter, only like 2% of trans people regret surgeries or HRT and most who end up detransitioning did so due to social pressure forcing them back into the closet or not being able to afford their HRT prescriptions. And how is Shinji and Kaworu's relationship less of a plot point than Kaoru? He only appears in one episode as it's suicide victim of the week.
>>2199952Go back to /pol/
>>2199952Maybe your problem is that you obsess over the 1 in every 20 piece of media that has a tranny in it, anon. Don't watch it if it triggers you so
>>2200038>only like 2% of trans people regret surgeries or HRT and most who end up detransitioning did so due to social pressure>source -my ass.It takes a lot of commitment to mutilate your genitals or permanently screw up your bodies development. I don't buy it for one second that you would "de-transition" after already overcoming that hurdle from social pressure. It's absurd that there is even an argument that we should be allowing people to mutilate their bodies. Cutting is considered a mental illness, anorexia is a mental illness, bulimia is a mental illness. We don't suggest to solve these by giving into those peoples delusions. WE GIVE THEM ACTUAL HELP.>how is Shinji and Kaworu's relationship less of a plot point than Kaoru? He only appears in one episode as it's suicide victim of the week.While correct that both are featured in about 1 episode. Wonder Egg basically portrays it blatantly like:>hi im a tranny and i killed myselfmeanwhile NGE has a much more natural and less intrusive way. While both shows have internal struggles with connections to other people as a prevalent theme, and coming a going of new characters the protagonists age is not uncommon. NGE is more subtle with "making it gay." In NGE, Shinji is alone (rei, Asuka, and his friends are either physically or emotionally unavailable due to story driven reasons) and Kaworu appears and is kind and understanding to Shinji, allowing Shinji to open up a little more than he usually does to other people. I think the main thing that really sells it is that you know the background of at least one of the characters and you understand why Shinji might be bi, or at least curious.
>>2200039great contribution. Now go back to /pol/ where contributing nothing to the thread is normal.>>2200042great contribution.

>>2196805if this sets you off then what are you going to do when you grow up and have real problems?
>>2200044https://metro.co.uk/2019/10/23/dont-believe-what-you-read-about-transition-regret-10961836/A Dutch study found it under 1%https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/media-s-detransition-narrative-fueling-misconceptions-trans-advocates-say-n1102686An American study found that 8% detransitioned, but the majority of them were temporary and the most common reason was due to their family disapproving. Less than 1% said they completely regretted it. Similarly, a Swedish and a different Dutch study each found around 2% regretting. https://www.genderhq.org/trans-youth-regret-rates-long-term-mental-healthOther studies have found a range between 0.3% to 3.8%.While it is true that a few of the transition options do not cure everything, in the same way that a few antidepressants won't prevent you from ever feeling sad, it fucking helps. On Wonder Egg portraying it blatantly, are any of the other side characters' introductions less blatant? We have shit like "Our favorite signer killed themselves, so we did too" or "My coach abused me" or "I grew up in a cult." I also get the feeling that if an anime were centered around a trans character's life and struggles that you would call it pandering, while if it was only a side character, like Kaoru, they are shoehorned in.
>>2198371The anime actually confirmed that she will never be a boy and conservashits are complaining?
>>2200038>My boyfriend$50 your boyfriend is bi or closeted btwAnd that's where the issue comes from, you want to "change people's gender" when our available technology to do so is either imperfect, extremely costly and/or only works on certain people and certain age groups best.I think we should stop treating transitioning as a panacea to everyone who has identity problems and instead of prescribing them hormones and sending them on their way actually assigning them a proper psychiatrist for long term evaluation. Because as soon as a transition is put on the table whoever opposes it is a racist, sexist, transphobic bigot and the poor person with the identity problems is just like "oh cutting my dick off and eating these pills will fix me"The end result becomes somebody with a half-functioning sex organ who is still not recognised by straight men as a woman (due to voice/ face/body structure/breast structure etc. So if you're a bisexual guy, this is fine, but then wouldn't you be just as fine dating a cross dressing guy? Or just a normal guy who's gay?That's where the suicide rate comes from, you have these people with super low self-esteem being told that hormones and a sex change will make them a woman and either half-way through it or once they've done it they realise it's not that viable and they've basically cut down the pool of people they can date even more, irreversibly. I mean I'm not trans but if I went through all that just to make my chances worse I'd wanna kill myself too.I'm a straight young white guy that's fit with a good job in a metropolis and I still have trouble meeting the right person. I can't even begin to imagine how hard it would be for a trans person. Of course you'd attempt to kill yourself when you realise you have only a miniscule chance of meeting your soulmate in your lifetime, not rocket science.
>>2200077>50-year study>in Sweden>ended in 2010>a place where they actually require a year or 2 of evaluation in order to transition.This is not the same as the trans cases of the current day. Since 2010 it seems "trans" people have exploded in numbers hard to find solid numbers but seems to be anywhere from +400% to +700% increases. I have serious doubts these studies are very applicable to the modern tranny. On top of that, why would the # that regret transitioning even matter when they are 8x more likely to attempt suicide; clearly it transitioning doesn't help the root cause of the issue.Even if they don't regret the transition or attempt to transition, that doesn't prove that it was a good idea to mutilate their genitals and fuck up their hormones for life.>While it is true that a few of the transition options do not cure everything, in the same way that a few antidepressants won't prevent you from ever feeling sad, it fucking helps.I have never seen any compelling evidence of this. They are always sick in the head.>On Wonder Egg portraying it blatantly, are any of the other side characters' introductions less blatant?

I also get the feeling that if an anime were centered around a trans character's life and struggles that you would call it pandering, while if it was only a side character, like Kaoru, they are shoehorned in.Of course, trannies are such a minority of the population that the sheer amount of representation in media is absurd and can only be for two reasons, pandering to the sick mentally ill trannies, or making LGBTQIA+++++ GSRM "Allies" feel good about "helping"Normal people are sick of pretending that any off this shit is not disgusting degeneracy. They need real help, not some pandering bullshit that just enables their mental illness and spreads it to other vulnerable and impressionable people.

>>2196805>literal show about people committing suicide for X reason>gets mad at trans person appearing in show>ignores the fact that trans people often suffer from depressionanon are you alright in the head? I bet you like yuri and don't complaint about that retard
>>2197359>you will never be a woman >character is specifically a trans man lel thanks for the support
>>2200045That's like 10 anime over the span of a decade or more.
>>2206081So one notable anime on a specific topic every year? Sounds pretty standard to me. Summerfag
>>2207632What is your point, exactly?I am not >>2200045, neither am i in support of their claim that the number of anime discussing this topic is unusually large compared to most other topics.
>>2201373>Can't actually contradict the point.>Can't cope with the fact that the science is against them.>Resorts to pulling numbers out of their ass, wild speculation, and inflammatory rhetoric.Never change, reactionaries.
i watched only three episodes, checked wikipedia and it says there's only one eoisode with trans charater, what trans agenda are you talking about?k
>>2207977Reactionaries really just jump on anything to play the victim.Anytime anything borderline not straight (or isnt lesbian, because if its gay and girls its ok) people think its "woke culture being shoved down their throat"
>>2204976>trans people suffer from depressionGood.
