What did he think of anime? It seems to me that Japanese culture is the opposite of everything he hated about America: hip irony, cynicism, egocentrism, etc.

    yeah but anime fucking sucks. watch any dub and try not to cringe. why do dubs suck? because the only way anime writing is bearable is when you can't hear it spoken in your own tongue

      100% true. the preference for subs has nothing to do with authenticity, it just shields you from how cringey the dialogue is when you read it versus actual hear it spoken out loud

    He's rolling in his grave thinking of all those good men who have essentially ruined their lives and wasted the best years of their lives masturbating to cartoons, hooked on a happy machine of the kind he could barely visualize.

    He would probably say that it is interesting and sometimes impressive from a purely technical standpoint but largely offers nothing but escapism, no real depth. An easy way to feel good for anyone willing to live vicariously through the characters for awhile.
    >hip irony, cynicism, egocentrism, etc.
    Fighting those with empty sentimentality is not what he was going for.

            He is far from my idol, that would probably be Brautigan who is about as far from DFW as you can get without resorting to YA or the like. Personally I have no issue with anime and some were fairly important to me in my past, but they really do not offer much and exemplify what DFW hated about TV.

            So this guy, his works are pretty much forgotten and all anyone cares about his persona right

            Nah, that is just LULZ, the board realized their larps were easier to maintain if they talked about the authors instead of the work, no risk of getting caught talking about books they never read.

              I read this entire braindead post. What am I supposed to get out of it? A picture of the personality of some anonymous retard who is too dumb to actually say anything?

    I despise how coy the japanese artist tends to be about his art, or outright deceitful.
